“Americans just want us … not to be concerned if they can be constitutionally justified. … Why, if we had to do that (follow the rule of our Constitution), we could not pass most of the laws we enact around here.”
– former Sen. John Glenn, parentheses added
The man in the Oval Office has brought in the New Year with an onslaught of abusive measures.
For example, he has signed NDAA 2013, a bill that makes a provision to unlawfully detain American citizens stand indefinitely (as he gives passes to illegal immigrants).
He also advocated emergencies through the engineered fiscal cliff. Senators received the 154-page bill at approximately 1:36 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 a.m. The House also passed it the following day.
After receiving news of these treacherous violations, I thought it appropriate to ask the American people, where are the politicians deriving their powers?
It is not from the United States Constitution.
The Constitution is a delegated, or expressed-powers, document. Case in point: The federal government can “only do” what the Constitution says it can, period! We have progressed from delegated, to suggested, to interpreted, to “if it doesn’t say we can’t … we can,” to “I don’t care what it says.”
Many of this administration’s actions have unlawfully and contemptuously defied the Constitution.
Barack Hussein Obama has attacked our military, attempted to force institutions to fund the murder of babies, sued states that passed laws to prevent illegal immigration, fired CEOs of private corporations and claimed “executive privilege” to cover for his attorney general in the deadly gun-running sting, “Fast and Furious.”
To further highlight Obama’s defiance, back in 2011 he was held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling offshore.
Listen carefully to what federal Judge Martin Feldmen said after he placed the injunction on Obama, as it well explains his overall disdain for America and her laws:
“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance. … Such dismissive conduct … provides this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt.”
Friends, he is not speaking of a Third World dictator; he is speaking of the president of the United States.
The great wonder of this age is that the American people sit back and allow this administration to defy and to desecrate everything our veterans fought, bled and died to give us – the ratification of the Constitution (Hebrews 9:22).
America needs to come back to the place where no longer are they magnifying the crime or the criminals, but rather the law against their crimes unto judgment to establish righteousness, especially when it comes to those who work for “We the People.”
Then and only then will we know the peace that God and our forefathers intended to give unto us through our Mosaic Institution.
Thomas Jefferson rightly stated, “When the representative body have lost the confidence of their constituents, when they have notoriously made sale of their most valuable rights, when they have assumed to themselves powers which the people never put into their hands, then indeed their continuing in office becomes dangerous.”
We have clearly seen that the president, Senate, and House have disregarded the precedents of our forefathers and instead have taken Sen. John Glenn’s advice: “Why, if we had to do that (follow the rule of our Constitution) we could not pass most of the laws we enact around here.”
Obama’s proposed plan on the economy implemented an unprecedented 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts. The bill passed shortly after Obama prostituted out the government by ordering a pay raise for Congress and other federal officials.
So the question is, who is giving him a pass, and why?
