Our President and the Constitution: Barack Obama has gone rogue

Via Kearney

Can the president rewrite federal laws? Can he alter their meaning? Can he change their effect? These are legitimate questions in an era in which we have an unpopular progressive Democratic president who has boasted that he can govern without Congress by using his phone and his pen, and a mostly newly elected largely conservative Republican Congress with its own ideas about big government.

These are not hypothetical questions. In 2012, President Obama signed executive orders that essentially said to about 1.7 million unlawfully present immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before their 16th birthdays and who are not yet 31 years of age that if they complied with certain conditions that he made up out of thin air they will not be deported.

  1. As has been stated on a regular basis recently and upheld by daily events Obama can do whatever the hell he wants unless and until he is actively restrained from continuing his conduct. Congress to date has done nothing and without a 2/3rds majority of non communists is essentially powerless. Any thing they pass to constrain him is subject to veto....and will be vetoed. The courts have not been particularly useful in any way usefulan even if they do rule against him as has happened occasionally he ignores the ruling....the courts are an impotent power, they cannot enforce their rulings without the guns controlled by the executive branch. I think we all know how that scenario works.

    In reality this country is screwed. There is no legal peaceful method for dealing with a lawbreaking criminal without presenting credible force. Any meaningful solution will require at the minimum enough force to negate at the least the Secret Service protecting him and probably a lot more than that. The system has been weakened so much that we now have a de facto king who can do what he wants with impunity. The ONLY remaining question being if he will step aside in 2017. If his handlers are satisfied with his replacement he likely will. If Soros et.all. fell that his leaving office will put their power at risk there is a huge chance that some scheme will be implemented to keep Obama where he is. The White House has been made the key to ruling America. The communists whom have seized power will never relinquish that office.....they might tolerate a change in who then figurehead is but actually allowing anyone to take office who is not owned by them is probably never going to happen again. That is why you see the concerted effort to DESTROY anyone they fear. We saw it happen to Herman Cain, we are seeing it with Scott Walker and we will see it with anyone who they don't own and who has a credible chance at winning an election.

  2. I think our attention is being shifted on to the puppet.

    As we all know, but tend to forget, we are ruled by the shadow party and the bureaucrats. (Just re-read the Pig Trap yesterday.) Removing the puppet isn't enough.

    Every four years we have high hopes that something will change with a new administration/congresscritters with a different letter behind the name. And it does change. It gets worse and gvt grows bigger and stronger and we grow weaker and more apathetic.

    1. gvt grows bigger and stronger and we grow weaker and more apathetic.

      Certainly seems so.

  3. Ron Paul was the last great White hope. sigh. After Congress gained control
    of Congress, I said to my sister "now is the time to start the impeachment process."
    She said, and I don't know how true this would be, that there would be total
    unrest. Are there that dam many Communists in the country because the likes
    of these would be the only fallen ones against it.

    1. Ron Paul was the last great White hope.

      The last great hope, period. Such a shame.
