A press release from Congressman Peter Roskam:

President Obama Signs Law, Immediately Announces Intent to Ignore It

 Washington, D.C. — Yesterday evening, President Obama signed into law the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015. U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam authored key provisions that protect American companies doing business in Israel.

President Obama singled out the Roskam provisions in his signing statement, writing that he will“interpret and implement [them] in a manner that does not interfere with [his] diplomacy.”

Rep. Roskam released the following statement:

“This law – including the anti-BDS provisions I was proud to author – passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate.

 “Incredibly, President Obama has already announced his intention to prioritize his misguided notions of legacy over the law of the land.

 “We did not provide a statutory menu from which President Obama can pick and choose provisions to enforce.

 “The president has signed this bill into law – it is now his responsibility to fully and faithfully execute it in its entirety.

 “I’m sorry to hear that fighting efforts to delegitimize Israel interferes with his diplomacy, but rest assured that I intend to use my authority as chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight to vigorously review and hold the administration accountable to duly execute our nation’s laws.”

  1. If the Republicans had any balls Obama would have impeached by now.

    If the shoe were on the other foot you know the Democrats would have moved to impeach a Republican president who pulled all the crap Obama has.

    This in and of itself explains why Trump, as it looks right now, will probably be the next POTUS.

  2. You cannot impeach a person of unknown origins.

    He is NOT an American in any way shape of form.

    But, you are right, he should have been frog walked out of there many years ago.

    BTW Trump won’t go anywhere.

    The fix is in for Hitlery.

    These people could eat a live baby on live teevee and nothing will be done about their shameless bloodthirsty ways.
