Our Lawless President: Obama Thumbs His Nose at Constitution
A Column by the Editor
web posted February 9, 2011
COLUMN – There is an old saying that goes something
along the lines of, "when the law breaks the law there is no law". I
get the feeling our President shows this type of disregard for our
Constitution and the Rule of Law it imposes on government. Time and
again Federal Judges rule against his fanatical leftist agenda, orders,
and Obamacare. But does Obama care? Obviously not, he ignores them and
imposes his will upon the nation as a Ruler, not a President.
Shortly after the Deep Water Horizon drilling platform exploded and
sank, causing the largest oil spill in the gulf, Obama imposed a ban on
most offshore drilling. Not so fast, oil companies sued and U.S.
District Judge Martin Feldman of New Orleans lifted the ban as outside
the rule of law and outside the scope of Presidential powers. Obama
just removed the ban, then imposed other rules to keep the ban in
place. The court has
held "the government" (i.e. Obama,) in "contempt" of the ruling.
Shortly after the midterm election rout, Obama said he was disappointed
that Congress, even with then overwhelming Democrat majorities, failed
to pass his bill of imposing limits on energy production and greenhouse
gas emissions. Congress made it clear then, and now with the Republican
majority in the House, that no such bill would be passed.
That pesky little Constitution gets in his way again. No biggie, Obama
just orders the EPA
impose the same rules even though Congress has said no.
Thankfully the new Congress is about to step in and rein in the runaway
totalitarian, I mean President, and roll back the EPA into following
Then along comes ObamaCare.
70% of the people said no, but Obama wanted his "signature"
authoritarian grasp on the people's throats, um, I mean his
legislation, passed and his liberal Congress bowed down quicker than
Obama can bow and kiss the ring of an Arab dictator and passed it
without reading the unconstitutional power grab.
Then half the States in the Union sue and Federal Judge Roger Vinson
throws the whole law
as unconstitutional. Poor Nancy Pelosi. She said they needed to
pass the law to find out what was in it. Well, on top of being
unconstitutional, they should have read it and placed a "severability
clause" in the bill. Because they didn't, if any part of the law is
ruled unconstitutional the whole law is out.
Does Obama care? No, it's a just an activist judge, although even
liberal pundits predict the Supreme Court will uphold Judge Vinson.
However, Obama is still enforcing his illegal law on the people.
Republicans in the House are moving to defund the massive healthcare
takeover and several states are moving forward with their own 10th
amendment rights to ignore the law through nullification.
Obama is trying, but that irritating Constitution keeps getting in his
way - and he keeps ignoring it as he sticks his nose in the air and
lectures those who disagree with his almighty demands.
The good news is that in spite of Obama's open admission that he thinks
our Constitution is "flawed" and gives too many "negative rights"
(rights to the people, not the government), his being elected is one of
the best things to ever happen to modern America.
An ultra-liberal president put in the White House with a veto-proof
liberal Democrat majority in both houses of Congress gave America a
view of left-wing nutcase liberalism on display like never before. With
such repugnance and arrogance shoved down the throats of hard working
tax paying Americans, they revolted at the ballot box last November and
threw out Democrats in numbers never seen before.
Obama says he doesn't want to re-fight the past two years during the
next two years of his administration. I guess not, everything he's done
has been unconstitutional and has increased our debt to levels never
Though the control of the Looney Left has been crushed in Congress, we
still have the media's American Idol sitting in the White House. At
least 2012 is just around the corner and Obama and one third of the
Senate is up for election, or rejection, as the case may be.
