Obama: A domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution


9 tall tales from the impostor who was never vetted:

Update II:
That a pot-addled subversive slacker named Barry Soetoro became The Most Powerful Man in the World is of course a tale of a serendipitous creature embodying Western intelligentsia’s most profound wishes and therefore built up by the Mass Media of Mass Lunacy into a mighty Frankenstein, a golem.  Takuan Seiyo’s latest essay @ GoV:  Through the Looking Glass

By Joseph Curl / The Washington Times 

“Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation — I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.*

“* Unless, you know, 224 years from now, whoever happens to president simply decides he really doesn’t want to do that.”

– Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 of Barack Obama’s U.S. Constitution

The Founders set the course in a simple, concise, 35-word affirmation — the president’s top job is to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution. The chief executive does, of course, have other responsibilities, but his guardianship of the document they had just written was deemed by the Founders to be of such great import that they made him swear it — aloud, in front of witnesses.

In 1884, Congress, having no set oath of office, wrote its own: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same …”

Little did they know then that 128 years later, America would face just that: a domestic threat to the U.S. Constitution.

From the very beginning, the president and his administration made clear they had no intention of enforcing laws they didn’t like. Mr. Obamaand his minions decided that they would simply stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act, no longer prosecute growers of “medical” marijuana, and let some states walk away from provisions in the No Child Left Behind law (which, by the way, was co-authored by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, and passed the Senateby a 91-8 vote).

Mr. Obama’s Justice Department has even more flagrantly flouted the laws of the land. Out of the blue, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, reinterpreted America’s gambling laws (and dumped the decision on Christmas Eve so as to avoid scrutiny). More recently, Mr. Holder has decided to thwart congressional oversight by refusing to release documents on the disastrous “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme, and he is actively fighting Florida for trying to expunge dead people from its voter rolls.

Ray Stevens – Come to the USA

Now comes Mr. Obama’s decision to stop enforcing America’s immigration laws. The new policy states that illegal immigrants who were younger than 16 when they entered the country are eligible for a two-year exemption from deportation. Of course, the “deferred action process,” as Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano called it, will apply to illegals up to age 30. (Think when they legally get their driver’s licenses they will also be handed a voter registration card?)

The increasingly desperate Mr. Obama, once a constitutional professor, knows full well he is circumventing Congress. In March 2011 he told a group of young Hispanics: “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law. I don’t have a choice about that. That’s part of my job.

Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws,” he said. “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

So why now? Politics. The Hispanic population in Florida, Virginia, Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado may well decide the November election, and with working-class whites, religious blacks, disenchanted young people and Jews fleeing in droves, Mr. Obama is looking to shore up his support, even if that means violating his oath to protect the Constitution.

Continuing his nonstop campaign of division — black against white, rich against poor, straight against gay, religious against secular, race against race — the president is seeking to build whatever loose coalition of support he can. Forget bipartisanship; a coalition of the middle, Mr. Obama’s sole path to victory, he thinks, is to stir up so much discontent within different strata that he can win re-election.

Of course, the liberals who whined about President George W. Bush’s signing statements haven’t made a peep about Mr. Obama’s Napoleonic power grab.

“What’s ironic,” columnist Charles Krauthammer noted, “is for eight years, the Democrats have been screaming about the imperial presidency with the Bush administration — the nonsense about the unitary executive. This is out-and-out lawlessness.”

But that doesn’t matter when you are King Barack. The Founders were determined to make sure no American leader ever had the power King George III enjoyed. Which is why they also wrote this in the Constitution: “The president, vice president and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

  1. I’m not sure if you remember but our koranimal in chief botched his Oath to Office…I’ve never seen any footage that shows him actually taking it.

    1. Indeed, he did. Deliberately.

      He needs to be impeached for high treason.

      But there is no political will to do it. The left controls the media and the socialist, progressive establishment is infatuated with him, no matter what he does. For most of the ‘right’ (if there is such a thing) it is inconceivable and embarrassing that Obama turned out to be what he is, the GOP is also infiltrated by leftist subversives of which many are simply too simple minded to get their head around the awful, perverse mindset of a Marxist Muslim, a megalomaniac and sociopath like Barak Hussein Obama. The Manchurian infil-traitor is guilty of many crimes against the constitution and against the American people, but how many of the GOP would like to see a popular elected president in jail?

      BHO is Pearl Harbour, the Titanic and 9/11 all in one. And we have yet to see the end of it.

  2. @Sheik, let’s be honest. When they talk about not enforcing immigration laws, they specifically mean Mexican and anyone else that will qualify as an ethnic minority, creating a two tier immigration system. I know that to come into the US as a white westerner you have to jump through hoops to qualify and pass a medical, your education is considered and that you are financially viable. Furthermore, you have to swear an oath that you won’t do anything subversive to harm the US and not claim benefits for five years upon entering. These same standards are forgiven for illegals, or should I say the right kind of illegals.

    If you are an illegal, with in 24 hours of entering the US, you can qualify and be given money, food, a home, mobile phone and in some cases a car all via the US government. Plus claim taxes up to around $10,000 back from the IRS, including being allowed to claim your family members (nieces and nephews) in Mexico. All claimants unsubstantiated of course. Because we know people who will break the law always tell the truth.

    Obama should be impeached for treason and thanks to a point made by kaw on a previous post, so shouldn’t George Soros. What remains of his wealth and assets that remain in the US should be confiscated by the government for subversive and treasonous acts against the US.
    But, your right the MSM will defend their guy no matter what, as we have seen in the past with Clinton, and the plausibility of his impeachment a reality, the MSM quickly rallied around their Democratic hero.
