Obama: “I Can Do What I Want.”
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” Thomas Jefferson
“That’s the good thing about being president,” Obama joked on February 10. “I can do whatever I want.” In an especially bitter irony, Obama uttered these despicable words while guiding French president François Hollande through Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson — a key architect of America’s foundation of limited government. — SOURCE: http://www.nationalreview.com/node/371248/print
OK. Some say the President was joking. Maybe so. But I tend to think of it more as a “Freudian slip,” which gave us a peek into the state of mind of one Mr. B. H. Obama.
Parse it anyway you will, but the fact remains — Obama is making a mockery of the US Constitution. He has set himself up as a ruling monarch with no regard for the constitution or the Congress, which represents the people.
Just a few days ago Obama changed the Obamacare law yet again. Legally he can’t do that. But he did . Why didn’t the Congress stop him? They can’t –and they won’t.
Dear reader — we have a constitutional crisis on our hands and it is getting worst every day.
Charles Krauthammer said recently that this is the kind of “stuff you do in a banana republic.”
Krauthammer went on to say: ” … But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It’s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama writes any number he wants, any delay he wants, and any provision.
It’s now reached a point where it is so endemic that nobody even notices or complains. I think if the complaints had started with the first arbitrary changes — and these are are not adjustments or transitions. These are political decisions to minimize the impact leading up to an election. And it’s changing the law in a way that you are not allowed to do.” — SOURCE: http://www.infowars.com/where-in-the-constitution-does-it-say-obama-can-rule-by-decree-and-do-whatever-he-wants/
I said above the Congress cannot and will not do anything to stop Obama although they know he is acting illegally. Why?
JB Williams in a piece entitled: “An Omnipotent President and Impotent Congress” said the following: “The entire world, including congress, knows that Barack Hussein Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, and that he is constitutionally prohibited from holding the office of President under Article II, an office he has occupied for five years now.
Everyone in congress knows that Obama seized office on a forged birth certification and fraudulent DNC documents.
Because congress has allowed Article II to be ignored since 2008, congress now finds itself in the completely impotent position of not being able to uphold or defend any Article of the US Constitution or the Bill of Rights.
Because House Republicans fear a public backlash to holding the unconstitutional Obama regime fully accountable for their anti-American fraudulent actions, they sit silent, forced to go along with every executive office infringement of both State and individual Rights, completely subverted by the Oval Office pen as if congress no longer exists at all. Every member of congress should be fired today!” — SOURCE: http://omegaoption.blogspot.com/2014/02/an-omnipotent-president-and-impotent.html
Then, there is the fact, I repeat: the fact, that nobody wants to impeach America’s first black President.
It has been clear for sometime now that if Obama is stopped it will be the people of the United States, and not our limp wristed leaders, who stop him.
We now know that Obama’s regime is expecting and preparing for just such a movement by citizens who want their country back, who want their government to live within the strictures of the constitution. Obama’s minions are preparing to defend their illegalities from any move by the people to stop them and set aright that which is badly broken in our government today. If you doubt it read: “The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is contracted to purchase 704,390,250 rounds of ammunition over the next four years, which is equal to a total of about 2,500 rounds per DHS agent,” – Read the entire article at: at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-meyer/dhs-contracted-purchase-704-million-rounds-ammo-over-next-4-years-2500-rounds#sthash.vTzQZ6lq.dpuf
Now — consider this: “Meanwhile, those that are objecting to the lawless behavior of the Obama administration are increasingly being portrayed as national security threats. This is also the kind of thing that we are accustomed to seeing in banana republics. According to a recent WND article, the Ohio Army National Guard conducted a training drill last year in which the “enemies” were supporters of the 2nd Amendment and had “right-wing beliefs“…
Internal documents from an Ohio Army National Guard training drill conducted in January 2013 describe the details of a mock disaster in which Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” beliefs were portrayed as domestic terrorists.
The Guard’s 52nd Civil Support Unit and first responders in hazmat suits conducted the training exercise last year in Portmouth, Ohio. In the terror-attack scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School teachers follow orders from a white-nationalist leader to poison school lunches with mustard gas to advance their “right-wing” beliefs about gun rights.
“It’s the reality of the world we live in,” Portsmouth Police Chief Bill Raisin told WSAZ-TV. “Don’t forget there is such a thing as domestic terrorism. This helps us all be prepared.” — SOURCE: http://www.infowars.com/where-in-the-constitution-does-it-say-obama-can-rule-by-decree-and-do-whatever-he-wants/
It has been suggested that Americans pray to get their country back. I endorse that suggestion, but I think it’s time we be a bit more proactive as well.
The story is told of the priest sitting ringside at a boxing match. He is obviously rooting for the losing fighter. As it happened the losing fighter’s mother was seated by the priest and she said tearfully to the priest, “Oh, please Father, won’t you pray that my son will win?”
The priest replied: “Certainly, my child. But it would help if your son would fight!”
The same applies to America: Prayer is always helpful. But fighting would help, too.
They say “what goes around comes around” and “The Preacher” from the book of Ecclesiastes, in the Old Testament of the Bible, said “there is nothing new under the sun.”
That being the case, may we be so bold as to suggest that the elitists in our government today, next time they sit down at the keyboard of their computers, Google the words: “France 1789.” We think they will find it very educational.
