Last night President Obama fully implemented is plan to Gruber America on his illegal executive amnesty plan. Did you watch? I normally don’t waste my time giving known liars a chance to lie to me again, but I figured this time it would provide plenty of things to write about, and the President did not let me down. It was clear to everyone that the President still believes Americans are stupid and that all he has to do is say it and we will believe it. The only thing he forgot to do was end his speech with “So let it be written. So let it be done”.
The fact checking of the speech began as soon as Obama began to speak, as did the list of lies the fact checkers found. In the end, nearly everything he said turned out to be a lie, which is exactly what you would expect to happen when someone attempts to justify a planned and very deliberate violation of his oath of office and of the law. The Presidential oath of office is really fairly simple and straight forward, so one would think the world’s smartest man would be able to remember what he swore to do.
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Such a simple promise, yet Barack Obama has deliberately and repeatedly violated that oath, and last night he indicated that he intended to significantly add to those violations. Members of Congress also take an oath of office.
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
You will note in the above oath that EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS of both houses, regardless of party affiliation, have sworn to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, which is quite an accurate description of Barack Obama. This means of course, that each and every member of Congress is bound by oath and the Constitution to do whatever it takes to prevent the President from taking the actions that he said he plans to take.
These actions begin with using the power of the purse strings deliberately given to the House of Representatives by our found fathers because they face the voters every two years. This power is not to be taken lightly, nor is it to be abandoned. If Republicans in the House of Representatives vote to provide a single penny of taxpayers’ money to fund these executive actions, they are complicit in his crimes and are also guilty of violating their oath of office as well. Withholding funds will almost certainly result in a government shutdown, but to shun their duties of office would be an act of political cowardice on the part of Republicans. I understand their reluctance to do this, but they can be sure the backlash for doing so will be much less than that of allowing this lawless act of the President to go unchecked.
Most Americans are opposed to the President’s executive amnesty plan, so it will be important in the coming months to pay close attention to which members of Congress remain silent about it. Nearly all of them will be Democrats, and that fact should be pointed out at every given opportunity. We cannot ignore the fact that the majority of Democrats, and especially the leaders of the Democrat Party, care so little about the Constitution that they would remain silent as it is shredded by their President. There is a lesson to be learned by every single person in this country. It is also worth noting that, if you are a Democrat and you continue to align yourself with these people, you too are a part of the destruction of Constitutional government in this country.
One thing that occurred to me as I listened to the President last night as he talked about taking executive action to beef up border security. If he has the legal authority to increase security at our borders, why has he not already done so? Knowing that our economy and our national security was at stake, why would he postpone his actions until he granted amnesty. If illegal immigration is creating so many broken families and causing so many people to suffer the hardship of living in the shadows, why has he allowed so many to come into the country when he could have taken action to prevent it?
For those of you who are in this country illegally, there are some things about the President’s plan that you should be aware of, because apparently Barack Obama believes you are just as stupid as the rest of us. For instance, in order to get your slice of the pie you will have to sign up, give your identifying information, pay the fees, etc. in exchange for a three year grace period and a work permit. Although it might sound attractive on the surface, be aware that you have just provided the federal government with everything it needs to find you and deport you. “But he promised we wouldn’t be subject to deportation” you might argue. You do know who you’re talking about, right? What good is an Obama promise? I’ll let you in on a little secret about that three years thing: he won’t be in office for three more years, and this action on his part pretty much guarantees the next President won’t be a Democrat. Given the current mood of the country, whoever is President will have to have made certain promises to the electorate that won’t bode well for your chances of remaining in this country indefinitely.
