It is apparent to anyone who loves what made America great more than any political party, that President Obama truly believes he is above the laws that govern our country.
Proof of this is evident. Most recently, Obama broke the law by negotiating a prisoner swap with the enemies of the United States without any notice to the U.S. Congress or regard for the legal procedure. This action is a blatant violation of the law.
H.R.3304, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 which upholds the law regarding detainee transfer from the act of the same name but dated 2012, reads specifically;
“. . . the Secretary of Defense may not use any amounts authorized to be appropriated or otherwise available to the Department of Defense for fiscal year 2012 to transfer any individual detained at Guantanamo to the custody or control of the individual’s country of origin, any other foreign country, or any other foreign entity unless the Secretary submits to Congress the certification described in subsection (b) not later than 30 days before the transfer of the individual.”
Obama is un-American and attributes little value to the principles our country was founded, but he is not stupid. The law governing the transfer of any Guantanamo Bay detainee has been law for many years, Obama knew it, his advisors knew it, and they all couldn’t have cared less to follow it. Why this was done is still to be understood.
“The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions instead of indications of potential political campaign intervention.”
When one’s inspector general determines guilt, there is guilt.
One cannot of course also forget the Fast and Furious gun running cover up. In the U.S. Justice report on this event, they concluded, “the speculative long term gain of foregoing enforcement action should have yielded to the immediate risk to public safety, both in the United States and Mexico, created by the subjects’ substantial trafficking activities.”
It is evident that President Obama is a proponent of defense prohibition and therefore wants to make the best case possible to prohibit the possession of firearms. Giving guns to murderers closest to the American public is a good start to making the case such guns should be prohibited, is it not?
Couple this report with the executive privilege imposed by Obama and reported by PBS. This obstruction of justice ordered the withholding of documentation that would bring exposure to exactly what happened during the events surrounding Fast and Furious. It is obvious to any objective observer that the documentation withheld by Obama was proof of the extent of his involvement as well as that of Eric Holder.
Why else would Obama grant such a privilege to himself?
These events are only a few of the many bold and lawless acts of President Obama and illustrates quite well that both sides of the aisle of Congress are willing to let this happen.
Therefore, fear the last six months America.
Consider that these events took place mostly during the time when President Obama was looking forward to an election campaign where the threat of going down in history as a one-term president was looming. Then, his boldest and most onerous of lawless actions takes place only a year into his second term.
In July of 2016, the beginning of the six months before Obama is to be forced out of office, imagine how embolden he will be:
Obama will know he is surrounded by mostly congressional cowards who do not have the moral courage to oppose what he does.
It is evident those closest to Obama support his actions and are willing to aid and abet his efforts regardless of the law.
Obama owns a majority of Supreme Court Justices who will willingly support his actions.
Obama will have nothing to lose, he has no reelection considerations.
What Obama will do:
First: Invoke a myriad of executive orders based upon some major and catastrophic event.
Second: Use those laws to impose his will upon those who oppose his agenda.
Third: Usurp as much power as possible for himself and future presidents.
The other two branches of government will do nothing. Why? Because the vast majority of those in power today have made a career of acquiring power, and only wish to expand that power as greatly as possible. There will be protests, there will be window dressing by members of Congress to show some level of disgust and ire, but Obama will succeed and real Americans will remain in shock as they have over the past few years at what has become of their country.
