Forget the U.S. Constitution: Obama says, “Where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.”
Update: “President Barack Obama is tired of waiting for Congress to move on legislation to reduce carbon emissions, and his administration is poised to move forward on actions to do just that—including a move that will effectively eliminate the possibility of any new coal plant opening in the United States, experts say.” So, not only is Obama once again acting unilaterally and trashing the separation of powers– but he’s also following through on his promise to destroy the coal industry.
Strange Update: Does Obama have a split personality disorder too? America is incredulous now that he’s been taped saying this: “You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble… You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can’t do things by yourself. That’s not how our system works. You’ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress.” Right…
Update: On January 25, 2013, a federal appeals court “overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess… The judges ruled that the appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal… They said Mr. Obama erred when he said he could claim the power to determine when he could make appointments… Allowing the president to define the scope of his own appointments power would eviscerate the Constitution’s separation of powers.”
Ignoring all evidence that violent criminals target “gun-free zones”— just a few examples include the Virginia Tech “gun-free zone” mass shooting in 2007 and the Aurora movie theater “gun-free zone” massacre in 2012– Obama’s second-term agenda is aimed at Americans’ gun rights under the 2nd Amendment.
Obama clearly understands that he’s attacking fundamental rights without justification– now that his own hometown of Chicago has implemented the strictest gun control laws in the country, it has a murder rate “far worse now than it was during the city’s most notorious crime era.”
Since Barack “former constitutional law professor at Harvard” Obama knew that he couldn’t get Congress to support his illogical, counter-productive, and unconstitutional plans, he announced his intent to bypass the elected legislative branch of government altogether and impose his will on the American people. He’s gotten away with so many unconstitutional executive orders already, that he knows he can simply do it again.
VP Biden openly admitted that the White House identified 19 executive actions for President Obama to move unilaterally on gun control. So what did Obama do? He signed 23 executive orders on gun control, leading to immediate calls for his impeachment by certain members of Congress.
Not only has Obama proven his divisiveness and partisanship by acting unilaterally– also keep in mind that his executive actions impose gun control on the American people, while giving free passes to King Obama and his Democratic nobility with their life-long 24/7 armed security teams.
None of this sounds very appealing, does it? Well, Obama’s going to make sure you don’t speak up– by surrounding himself with children during his gun control announcement. Yes, using these
children political props will make sure the American people surrender more liberty in return for a false sense of security.
Update: “Tyrants who have used children as props: USSR’s Joseph Stalin, China’s Mao Zedong, Germany’s Adolf Hitler, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, North Korea’s Kim il-Sung, and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.” It’s unbelievable that a sitting U.S. President has adopted the manipulative tactics of these tyrants.
Update #2: Obama’s hypocrisy over gun control is even more extreme because his “Fast and Furious” scandal (in which Obama’s Administration purposefully sold thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels) resulted in the deaths of at least 200 Mexicans and 2 U.S. border patrol agents. This image says it all:
Who cares about what Congress or the Courts say? Answer: Not Obama.
Chief Justice John Roberts switches his vote on Obamacare at the last minute because he’s worried about bad press. Nevermind the fact that he has a lifetime appointment and is expected to be part of the “independent judiciary.” Everyone on both sides of the political aisle agrees that Obamacare shouldn’t be upheld under the Taxing and Spending Clause, meaning that Obamacare really is unconstitutional.
Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan believes the government can tell Americans what to eat. In her own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSoWGlyugTo
NOTE: Voting for Obama in 2012 will enable him to nominate more of these Supreme Court justices who don’t respect the rule of law and hold the U.S. Constitution in contempt. If Obama is re-elected and puts a majority of these tyrannical judges (who have lifetime appointments) onto the Supreme Court, this country will not be able to recover in our lifetimes.
In a further acknowledgment of the fact that Obama considers terrorists to be common criminals, he wants to give Miranda Rights to terrorists. Nevermind the fact that this hinders any attempt to interrogate terrorists to discover future plans to attack America. Obama, the “constitutional scholar,” believes that terrorists should enjoy rights protected under the U.S. Constitution because terrorism is a “law enforcement” issue, not a “national security” issue.
Democrats in Congress with nothing but contempt for the limits on federal power explicitly set forth in the U.S. Constitution:
Tragically, Obamacare got passed only because Democrats in Congress got bribed:
The “Louisiana Purchase” of Senator Mary Landrieu and the “Cornhusker Kickback” for Senator Ben Nelson are only two of these notorious backroom deals.
Key Question: Why does Obama need to declare a “national emergency” over the swine flu “to enable hospitals to handle a flood of sick people when there is no flood of sick people (and the pandemic seems to be fizzling out)?” Answer: Obama wants more power for himself, and less liberty for you.
