Despite promising repeatedly on the campaign trail to rein in George W. Bush’s executive-branch usurpations of power, Obama has been spewing a particular type of unconstitutional decree at a rate unprecedented in U.S. history. While the Obama administration has indeed unleashed a full-throated attack on the Constitution using “executive orders,” even more of his decrees have come in the form of so-called “presidential memoranda” — an almost identical type of “executive action” that he has used more than any previous U.S. president, according to a review published this week by USA Today.
With the federal government engaged in a de facto unconstitutional occupation across some two thirds of Utah’s territory, citizens of the state and their elected representatives have had just about enough. So, on December 31, the State of Utah is formally demanding that Washington, D.C., relinquish control over more than 30 million acres of valuable land currently controlled by various federal bureaucracies.
While apparatchiks for an all-powerful U.S. government and far-left activists are fuming over the plan, Utah lawmakers, citizens, and experts say the time has come for the state to manage — and profit from — its own resources. Constitutionally speaking, experts say the lands should have gone to state control decades ago, as the federal government promised.

After a spectacle featuring senior Obama administration officials prostrating themselves before the United Nations “Committee against Torture,” the controversial UN body released a scathing report last week accusing U.S. authorities of widespread violations of what it calls “international law.” Among other concerns, the global panel cited everything from “police brutality” by state and local officials domestically to the actions of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies abroad. Other criticism directed at the United States focused on immigration policies, deportations, prison conditions, Guantanamo Bay, the terror war, and more.
Pointing to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson along with subsequent unrest in Ferguson and policing issues, the dictator-dominated United Nations just launched another brazen assault on America, U.S. sovereignty, and the gun rights of Americans. UN boss Ban Ki-moon, the global body’s “Human Rights Council,” and even the UN “Committee against Torture” all took turns lambasting the United States as an alleged stronghold of systemic racism and police brutality. To fix the problems, the UN argued, Americans and their elected officials must submit to the demands of self-styled global “authorities” — including more unconstitutional gun control to further restrict access firearms, and UN rules for police.
