Obama Declares His Executive Power Supreme
The arrogance of Barack Obama apparently knows no limit as he attempts to move the country into uncharted territory.
It seems the community organizer turned president has decided that America can get along just fine without three branches of government.
With his Socialist agenda stalled in Congress, Obama and his den of thieves are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities.
Americans have already made it crystal clear they don’t want what Obama is selling, yet the president is prepared to act on his own without Congress or the American people.
The former ballerina, Rahm Emanuel confirmed that the White House is reviewing a list of executive orders and directives “to get the job done across a front of issues.”
Even Obama’s number one cheerleader, the New York Times is concerned, not about a tyrant in the White House, but that overreaching executive orders could leave Obama open to criticism and be subject to future challenges in Congress.
‘But Mr. Obama has to be careful how he proceeds because he has been critical of both Mr. Clinton’s penchant for expending presidential capital on small-bore initiatives, like school uniforms, and Mr. Bush’s expansive assertions of executive authority, like the secret program of wiretapping without warrants.”
In Obama’s rush to become supreme dictator, he is conveniently forgetting about the little roadblock known as the separation of powers. You would think that an alleged Harvard Constitutional scholar would remember such an important piece of information.
“The role of the President under the U.S. Constitution is not to make laws, but simply to execute the laws passed by Congress. Article I, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution begins: ‘All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.’ If the Constitution mandates that ‘all’ law-making powers reside in the Congress, then it stands to reason none is left for the President. The President’s job is that ‘he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ under Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.”
This makes it clear that the job of the chief executive is to ensure that laws made by actual law makers are carried out.
Obama has already used his State of the Union address to bushwhack the Supreme Court with what amounts to a full scale strike. A cowardly act when you consider the fact they would be unable to respond.
In true Obama style, his plan is to use the time that the Senate is in recess to make mass appointments. We can only imagine what leftist nominees he has in mind. The one sure guarantee is none will qualify for even the lowest level security clearance.
One interesting question yet to be answered is will members of Congress just stand by and let Obama assume their power? No doubt this would be acceptable to Obama since his goal is to rule the country by executive proclamation.
Well, at least until his dictator gig kicks in.
