President Obama has completely bypassed congress and has granted amnesty through executive order to at least 4 to 5 million illegal aliens.
A dictator will start as a benevolent dictator. That’s how the people are fooled. The (seemingly) charitable goodwill or kindly feelings of an end result justifies the means.
Will those who have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic – do their sworn duty?
Will the two-headed Hydra (Congress) stop this man and defund his actions?
Those who have done their best to patrol our border with their hands tied behind their back by the present administration – have been made to look like fools.
Those who have hired Americans while having refused to hire illegal aliens – have been made to look like fools.
Those who have followed the laws of immigration waiting to come to the United States – have been made to look life fools.
There will now be a new invasion across the border as hundreds of thousands will flock into the U.S. having heard the news – further overwhelming already strained federal and state budgets for welfare assistance, healthcare, medicaid, and other benefits.
This rogue president has crossed a historic line. Presidents do not make law.
Will the nation survive it?
The Congress holds the purse strings. They must defund this traitorous action.
What do YOU think? What’s your opinion of Obama granting amnesty to illegals?
The following is a short but succinct summary of what just happened, written by Karl Denninger of Market-Ticker.org (h/t Grog) re-posted with permission via their content policy.
There Is No Longer A Rule Of Law
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 your 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.
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.
My only remaining point of amazement is that this nation’s citizens are willing to put up with it.
