With a stroke of His Imperial Pen, Mr Obama has shredded the US Constitution and driven the United States towards the realm of any given pathetic banana republic. Perhaps Mr Obama is simply trying to create more stars and bars upon the epaulets of his faux uniform.
Unlawfully and unconstitutionally, Mr Obama has decided unilaterally that he can create his own nation-changing law and bypass Congress entirely — which means he has completely done away with a full third of foundational American government. For those requiring a reminder, the three branches are: Executive, Judicial and Legislative. Mr Obama has kicked aside the Legislative branch: the US Congress.
This is a day of infamy. A day of Constitutional infamy.
What will this do? It will incentivize people from far away — think Central America and South America, like the children a few months ago — to attempt to invade our southern border. Some will come from the north and some from our lateral coasts.
“The problem is the central attribute you have to have as any leader, in any walk of life and certainly in government is trust,” Ron Fournier of the National Journal said. “This president has destroyed the credibility of his administration himself and government itself.”
Hugh Hewitt said that condescension is the proper response to Mr Obama’s executive order. And I would tend to agree. What is not warranted is any kind of reaction to include either a “shutdown of government” or an “impeachment.” That would be playing right into the seriously stupid hands of Leftists.
That said, I don’t trust the GOP to not be stupid. I wish I were more assured of a proper GOP response.
An edict such as this, no matter its name, is a precedent set that few people will want. It is a precedent that can be referred-to in the future by future presidents. Republican presidents. Actions presidents take, unhalted, do nothing but provide fodder for more power-taking in the future. Demorats fail to see and understand this concept. They apparently can only think of the here and now. This is nullification of laws and an essential re-writing of laws. By one man.
Leftists “justify” Obama’s actions by pointing to Ronald Reagan, who they say created his own Executive Order with regard to immigrants. And that is completely INcorrect. Please see this very important article by Gabriel Malor.
This nation has checks and balances for a reason. There can never be an Imperial President. There can never be a monarch in the United States of America. However, when Leftists and Demorats set a precedent, they fail to realize that a reverse precedent can thusly be set. A presidential temper tantrum cannot and should not set precedent but it appears to be. Where is his stated authority for this?
Which means: what if a president decided to turn a blind eye to lynching homosexuals? What if a president decided to declare no borders? What if a president decided to declare drugs fully lawful?
What if this president sets precedent for the reverse?
What if this means Americans can pick and choose which laws THEY wish to obey and which laws they wish to disregard. Goose/gander.
Demorats and Leftists and parts of the GOP tried to bury us Conservatives. They didn’t realize: we are seeds.
