Supreme Court EPA Ruling Irrelevant Since Obama Doesn’t Obey the Law


President Obama ostensibly received a setback when the Supreme Court ordered a halt to an Environmental Protection Agency regulation. But in fact he did not since he doesn’t obey the law.

The Daily Signal reported on Feb. 10 on the SCOTUS ruling.

In a major setback to the Obama administration’s climate agenda, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote blocked the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan from taking effect until the legal challenges from states and industry groups fully play out.

Twenty-five states, four state agencies and dozens of industry groups challenged the Clean Power Plan, which would require aggressive carbon dioxide cuts from America’s existing power plants. The Supreme Court’s decision reverses a lower court’s decision two weeks ago not to stay the regulation.

Yet a quick web search from the past year alone shows Obama really doesn’t think much of the Judiciary.

— “Obama defies federal judge, fails to rescind wrongly issued amnesties” (Washington Times, June 29, 2015)

— “Leaked DHS memo shows Obama might circumvent DAPA injunction” (Hill, Nov. 2, 2015)

— “Obama Administration Defies Court’s Directive; Settles Syrians in Texas Without Advance Notice or Information” (Attorney General of Texas, Jan. 26, 2015)

There’s no reason to expect that Obama is going to let this latest SCOTUS opinion impede his agenda. And there’s no reason to expect that conservatives will do anything to stop him as he proceeds with it.
