A bill prefiled for introduction in the Missouri State House for 2015 could effectively nullify federal executive orders signed into existence by the President.
House Bill 255 (HB255), by State Rep. Tim Remole (R-Excello), seeks to rebuke what is seen by many as federal lawlessness from the executive branch. The full text of the bill is as follows:
Any federal regulation or rule promulgated as a result of an executive order of the President of the United States repugnant of the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of Missouri shall be declared invalid in the state of Missouri. Such regulations and rules shall be considered null and void and of no effect.

MOSCOW, /TASS/. Oil prices at about 70 U.S. dollars per barrel will have no adverse impact on Russia’s budget, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev said in an interview with Russia’s television Channel One on Friday.
North Koreans beyond middle age remember well when they had more electricity (and for that matter food) than their pro-American cousins in South Korea, and that compounds the indignity of spending their nights sitting in the dark.
Back in the 1990s, the United States offered to help North Korea with its energy needs if it gave up its nuclear weapons program. But the deal fell apart after the Bush administration accused the North Koreans of reneging on their promises.
North Koreans complain bitterly about the darkness, which they still blame on the U.S. sanctions. They can’t read at night. They can’t watch television. “We have no culture without electricity,” a burly North Korean security guard once told me accusingly.

Congressman Peter King (R., N.Y.) called North Korea an “organized gang of criminals” on Tuesday following reports that the group behind the Sony e-mail hack was threatening a 9/11-style attack at the premiere of The Interview, which is set to open in theaters on December 25.
While the threat has not been officially linked to North Korea, King said it was a “safe assumption” to make.
“As far as I’m concerned, North Korea was an organized crime family disguised as a nation-state,” King said.
U.S. Federal Judge Arthur J. Schwab of the Western District of Pennsylvania said the executive branch has the ability to exercise discretion on how to enforce the law, but President Obama’s action breaches that.
Judge Schwab said “the President is writing laws, a power reserved for Congress.” Judge Schwab, who was appointed by President Bush and has served on the bench since 2002, said in his ruling Tuesday
“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause and therefore is unconstitutional.”
