Ruminations on "Obama Halts Some Immigration Cases"

In response to the news today about "Obama Halts Some Immigration Cases"

Neither the president of the United States nor anyone in Homeland Security has the authority or any granted powers to dictate the courts' dockets.

In terms of Constitutional law, Obama and Napolitano have no more authority or legal influence to make this announcement than I do. Homeland Security is ostensibly a law enforcement agency (or collection of law enforcement agencies). The president is in the Executive branch. Neither has any authority to dictate what the Judicial branch can do or not do.

Oh, that's right. Obama has once again invoked the nana-nana-boo-boo rule ("Nana-nana-boo-boo, I'll do whatever I want and you can't stop me").

Forget about elections. At what point does a federal court, or a congressional impeachment hearing, prosecute this dangerous man for crimes against the Constitution?
Illegal usurpation of powers reserved for the Judiciary. Check.
Illegal use of military force against a sovereign nation (Libya), against the explicit will of Congress. Check.
Illegal use of ungranted powers to impose his will upon the people explicitly against Congressional vote (use of the EPA to create carbon punishments). Check.
Illegal executive branch intrusion into legally formed contracts. (Takeover of GM and use of new incorporation to invalidate equity holders' shareholder votes and ownership of the company.) Check.
Illegal commitments to foreign powers. (Greenhouse emissions commitments against explicit congressional orders and a legal congressional vote against such commitments). Check.
Willfully and knowingly signing an illegal and unconstitutional bill into law. (Health care bill) Check.
Illegal grants of law-making and enforcement powers to unelected government employees. (Appointments of his "czars"). Check.

The man is a dangerous socialist whose personal and organizational agenda is to willfully and deliberately weaken the United States economically in order to restrain and diminish its influence over other governments and peoples of the world. His entire life has been spent as an extreme radical, including years as a young adult where he explicitly worked toward a socialist revolution and the overthrow of the United States government. He has demonstrated clearly and consistently that he does not consider himself to be bound by the enumerated powers of the Constitution nor his Oath of Office, and that he will use federal government power to implement much of the communist manifesto. He has used federal power to usurp the sources of capital (Wall St.,bank, and insurance bailouts), to take over means of production (GM, Chrysler bailouts, union pandering), and to redistribute wealth (Health care law). He has also, most frighteningly of all, ordered acts of force and war by the United States military unilaterally and against Congress's explicitly voted wishes, against a sovereign nation with whom we are not at war (Libya), leading one to wonder whether we will see tanks defending an illegal occupation of the White House after November 2012.
