Spree of Obama ‘midnight’ regulations revives GOP concerns [Video]

The GOP is watching a flurry of Obama executive actions with grave concern. From releasing terrorist prisoners in Guantanamo Bay to the United Nations actions against Israel, the intent seems to be to either cement his legacy of ham string the incoming Trump administration. Apparently, Mr. Obama has no compunctions about being a lame duck president.

As Written By Fred Lucas and seen first on Fox News:

A flurry of big decisions out of the Obama administration just weeks before President-elect Donald Trump takes office has rekindled Republican concerns about President Obama’s plans for jamming through so-called “midnight regulations” and other leftover items from his wish-list on his way out the door.

In the last week alone, the Obama administration blocked future oil and gas leases in swaths of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans; granted a record number of pardons and commutations for a single day; and scrapped a dormant registry for male immigrants from a list of largely Muslim countries.

Defense officials told Fox News there is an effort underway to transfer up to 22 additional detainees out of Guantanamo Bay. And Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations stunned Israel on Friday by abstaining on a Security Council measure condemning settlement activity, allowing it to pass.

And Obama still has a month left in office. The most recent announcements were made while the first family was on vacation in Hawaii – leaving unclear what Obama has in store for when he gets back to Washington.
