There is a stench that follows the current president of the United States around like a dead mouse. He chooses criminals and anarchists as advisers. Spends his time in the company of classless and debauched “entertainers.” And seeks “spiritual” consultations with hate-filled “reverends.” All the while, celebrating muslim holidays in the White House, while verbally trashing Christians for their beliefs.
“In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.” John Quincy Adams
This noxious president fails to defend those who have put their lives on the line for American interests abroad. He shows no consideration for freedom of speech, unless it involves, atheists, socialists or communists. He uses the IRS, DOJ, radical feminists, and his personal henchwomen in the military, to seek out and destroy Christians and/or their businesses. He embraces homosexuals while disdaining Christians.
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity; religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness — these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles.”
This putrid president defies the U. S. Constitution by side-stepping Congress’ constitutional responsibilities as the country’s law makers, using his “executive powers” to thwart Congress (especially the Republican run House) at every turn.
And recently, after his party got trounced at the polls, he’s arrogantly decided to drop all pretenses of being a constitutionally elected United States president, representing all of the American people, and simply became a dictator, using his “pen” to trash the U. S. Constitution’s checks and balances, grounded in the separation of powers. Simply put, he has shown himself to be down-right, un-American!
“. . . Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed . . . so long as our manners and principles remain sound, there is no danger.”
The latest “executive order” override involved another abuse of said “orders”. In this outrageous situation, this mephitic president bypassed the law and Congress, and gave free, unfettered amnesty to five million people. People who are in the U. S. illegally, including, for all we know, vicious terrorists. In the process, he threw the entire U.S. Congress, our Constitution, law enforcement and hundreds of immigration laws, under the bus.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
More troubling is the fact that, unlike his predecessors, who have used executive orders to improve our national security, this president has used them to imperil our national security!
By allowing millions and millions of undocumented, unvetted and unknown aliens to stay in the U. S., without any security clearance, this president, who has put American lives at risk abroad, has now deliberately put American lives at risk at home!
For this stinky president to do this, during a time of ravenous terrorist activity against America, and Americans, is diabolical and speaks volumes about his hatred for America, and his abhorrence of Christian Americans in particular.
And, despite the fact that the stupid Americans, who put this president in office in the first place, have finally (when they threw the bums out on Nov. 4th of this year) wised-up to the fact that this malodorous president has never acted in America’s best interest – he must still be handcuffed during his remaining time in office.
And it must start by addressing the unilateral amnesty this reeking president just bequeathed to the criminals (all are here illegally) in this country. To this end, there are avenues, although bumpy, to be traveled.
As most of you know, there are three branches of the United States government, as stipulated by the longest-standing, and most successful, constitution in human history – the Legislative branch (makes laws), the Executive branch (carries out laws) and the Judicial branch (evaluates law).
The fundamental basis for what we call the “Rule of Law” starts with the Legislative branch. This branch is our U. S. Congress and it is composed of two bodies, both of which are comprised of duly elected individuals. The first is the House of Representatives (453 people, the number of which varies depending on each state’s population numbers) and the second body is the Senate (100 people, two from each state.) They work in the Capitol Building.
The Executive branch includes the President, Vice President and the members of his cabinet. These 15 cabinet appointees oversee the Department of Justice, State Department, Treasury Department, etc. While the president approves the laws, the remainder of his cabinet, and their departments, implement the laws created by Congress.
And lastly, there is the Judicial branch which enforces and evaluates the laws made by Congress. This branch includes the federal court system throughout the country and the U. S. Supreme Court, which is the highest court in the land. The Supreme Court is solely responsible for determining if cases brought before it are either constitutional, or unconstitutional.
As you can see, the president is to carry out the approved laws created by Congress and nothing more. He is not permitted to change the laws because that is specifically against the Constitution’s directives, as designed by our brilliant Founding Fathers. And that directive was specifically included so as to avoid placing too much power in the hands of one man!
As the famous English historian, Lord Acton, once wrote, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
To this end, the Founders severely limited the president’s ability to become a dictator. And although there are no constitutional provisions that explicitly permits executive orders, the president is defined as the “executive”, and as such, he is instructed by the U. S. Constitution to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This directive is written in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5 and it further states that if he fails in this obligation he faces impeachment.
But, the founders also realised that the process of changing, or creating, new laws could be time-consuming. So, when the president needs to act swiftly, or make informed decisions quickly, especially in the case of a national emergency, he was given limited autonomy.
The Founding Fathers also understood that the president may need to make managerial decisions expeditiously as well, concerning the workings of the federal government.
To this end, very limited “executive powers” were granted to the president. To assure that this power was not abused, another “check and balance” was put in place. All executive orders are to be subjected to judicial review. And upon review, they can be struck down, if deemed by the courts to be unsupported by statute or the Constitution.
Granted, the man who is president of the United States has had the discretionary authority to use the power of “executive orders” since our nation was founded, but very few past presidents have had the nerve, the audacity or the unmitigated gall to abuse this privilege.
Most used their authority, as intended, within the tight parameters prescribed by the Constitution, understanding that if they violated this trust, they could be impeachment.
Most executive orders, issued by past presidents, were intended to manage mundane situations relating to the operation of the federal government including the acquisition of real estate for national parks and monuments, transferring responsibilities from one department to another and addressing changes in Civil Service regulations.
But when used to “excess”, the executive power of the president was used “excessively”, almost exclusively, during wartime. The two presidents who used the executive orders authority the most, were Pres. Woodrow Wilson (World War I) who used his executive powers 1800 times during his eight years as president and Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (World War II) who used his executive powers 3700 times during his twelve years as president.
Executive powers are very important when expeditious action is needed to speed up the preparedness for war and to quickly offset changing battlefield conditions.
And, history shows, that the unique and highly revered executive powers of the president were rarely, if ever, used to deliberately circumvent the established laws of the land, or worse yet, to make new law.
This smelly president has done both, despite the fact that every other president understood this to be an unconstitutional usurpation of the Legislative branches responsibilities.
Luckily, today, there are still experienced men who respect, revere and understand the U. S. Constitution. One of those men is former U. S. Attorney General, under President Ronald Reagan, Edward “Ed” Meese.
The following is Ed Meese’s advice on how to kill this stenchy president’s notoriously, unconstitutional, amnesty “executive order.”
“The Lame Duck session presents the first test for Republican leadership in the House and Senate since the American people overwhelmingly spoke on Election Day. As usual, President Obama and congressional Democrats are playing their Washington games.
They are trying to scare and intimidate Republicans in Congress into funding their liberal priorities all the way through 2015 with the threat of a government shutdown, and a compliant media ready to blame it on Republicans and conservatives. With the wind at their back, Republican leaders should not allow this shallow threat to succeed and must stand up to these bullying tactics designed to block the will of Congress and the American people.
This time, the Democrats are trying to protect not only President Obama’s liberal spending priorities, but also his unilateral and unconstitutional decision to grant amnesty to five million illegal immigrants.
Just weeks after the American people sent a clear message to Washington against amnesty, Republican leaders in Congress have an obligation to fight back against this lawlessness and bad policy.
The path forward is clear: Pass only a short-term bill that funds the government, but does not allow funding for the implementation and enforcement of this executive amnesty.
This strategy puts Republicans on the side of good policy and the rule of law, as well as with the overwhelming majority of the American people who reject President Obama on this issue.
By standing with President Obama, congressional Democrats would be supporting an increasingly out of touch and unpopular president who was just rejected unequivocally at the polls.
Not only is this a fight worth having, it is a fight we can win. A number of new conservatives will be joining Congress next month who just won election on the promise of stopping amnesty. By supporting a short-term deal in the Lame Duck that does not fund executive amnesty, Republicans will ensure that the government is not shut down and that President Obama’s lawlessness will be one of the first issues visited in the new Congress.
Republican leaders cannot and should not lock-in the priorities of President Obama and congressional Democrats in the Lame Duck for all of next year. Doing so would effectively block our opportunities to stop Obamacare, pass policies that grow the economy by cutting spending and taxes, restore a defense budget that protects our nation and respects our troops and veterans, return us to the rule of law, and affirm our commitment to life, religious liberty, and the values that make our nation great. We cannot allow these important issues to be waylaid by another Lame Duck Washington deal.
The choice is clear. Pass a short-term funding bill, don’t fund executive amnesty, go home, and return in January with Republican majorities in the House and Senate that can begin to set and pass an agenda that reflects the priorities of the American people. “
Sounds like a plan!
Scary times we’re living in, that’s for sure.
Yes. I would feel more morose if the Nov. 4th elections hadn’t turned out so well. Now there’s truly, hope for change. in the right direction
