Add Karl’s opinion to what’s been promised to happen in Ferguson here, underscored by the POTUS telling protester’s to ‘Stay the course…’ and one could easily come to the conlusion that the title of his post is now fact. Got preps? Got training? Joined the III Percent Society for America yet (might be the best ten bucks a month you’ve spent in decades)?
This clown needs impeachment — now.
This is not an option for the House. Any President who willfully and wantonly refuses to faithfully execute the laws of this nation must be impeached and removed from office. It is a duty of the Congress, not an option that Congress has.
Tonight you heard Obama appeal over a young girl who “came here” and is a great student. He quoted scripture (not that I believe he has ever actually read it.) We all know Presidents don’t write their own speeches in the modern day, at least we do if we have a brain in our heads.
To declare that the law will not be enforced on a blanket basis for huge groups of people because the President disagrees with the Congress — which has the absolute right to set immigration policy — is a complete stick in the eye to any premise of The Rule of Law that you might believe remains.
I note that to refuse to decide is still a decision, and Congress is within its rights to do exactly that. Congress has no imperative to pass anything; it acts through absence of legislation more often than it legislates, in point of fact, and this is exactly what the founders intended — and how all Constitutional Republics that are functional operate.
I find it particularly galling that Obama cited the “innocent” child who was “caught up” in the illegal acts of his or her parents. Not only does he propose to shield the “innocent child” he also proposes to shield the actual lawbreakers, the parents, themselves as well!
This is tantamount to endorsing the taking of hostages in the form of children to force the government to grant both of you amnesty. What you should get as an adult for doing this is prison time — first for your lawless act, and then again for taking you child hostage and using him or her in this fashion. That latter act ought to be a felony, standing alone.
But tonight Obama instead celebrates it.
Well, tell that to the actual innocent people who have had their property stolen under “civil forfeiture” yet they’re never charged. Double standard? It’s worse than that — it’s just a complete absence of anything that could be called The Rule of Law at all — it’s not even vestigal in the United States any more.
So here you go folks — if the Congress will not immediately impeach, and you know they won’t, then they’re going along with it. And that means that there is not just a lawless President in Washington DC there are 536 lawless individuals and their minions comprising the entirety of the executive and legislative branches that have decided that THERE IS NO MORE RULE OF LAW IN AMERICA.
We’ve seen literal hundreds of examples over the last few years and I’ve written about many.
My only remaining point of amazement is that this nation’s citizens are willing to put up with it.
