“Obama: ‘I Am Constrained By A System That Our Founders Put In Place’”
That he feels the need to say this aloud is of itself quite telling, but what galls me most — his special pleading here aside — is that we know for a fact that he doesn’t believe he either can or should be constrained by that “flawed document” that the framers put in place to do just that.
– As he’s made clear with respect to the Appointment’s Clause; the Takings Clause; the First Amendment’s protection for religious liberty; his refusal to defend certain duly passed laws, while using his Justice Department to sue several states to keep them from enforcing their own laws (and existing federal law); his using Executive branch dictates to circumvent Congress — be they in the service of backdoor amnesty or carbon taxes or gun control; his failure to deliver his budget in the time the law requires; his desire to see the Commerce Clause expanded to allow government mandates on private commerce; his refusal to defend our borders; his going to war without any outside discussion or approval by Congress; and now, his anti-federalist assault on the Second Amendment, which has included pressure from the VP and out of state lobbyists to convince various state Democrats that failure to vote with the national party against the wishes of your constituency will be considered an act seditious to the national party and its cause, and will be dealt with accordingly.
Obama is a demagogue and a liar. Hell, even his name is a lie.
That so many people were fooled by him not once but twice means only that they aren’t particularly bright, not that he isn’t who I’ve been saying he is since he first broke onto the national scene: a Marxist who was polished for public office by a former domestic terrorist so as to act as a Trojan Horse virus that unleashes all of the poison progressives have spent years insinuating into law and the larger culture and its institutions.
He is the protege of Frank Marshall Davis, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and Ayers and Dohrne. He was taught by Piven and Alinsky and Said, among others (including critical race theorists), and did his graduate work as a street organizer and Cooper Union socialist activist. He has been conditioned to believe the US is the world’s most offensive bully, that it was born in genocide, expanded through colonialism, enriched through slavery, and entrenched as a superpower by wars of aggression — its citizens held captive by an economic system that is at once coarse and systemically “unfair.” He is a transnational progressive who deplores state sovereignty, hates wealth not born of “public service,” and wishes to re-set not only relations with Russia, but the whole of the global RISK board.
Honestly: what did you fucking expect would happen? That, because he won a national election, he must necessarily love his country and at heart be a “good man”?
Yeah. How’s that working out for you?
