Ay, Yi, Yi, Yi — A Rogue President Makes His Own Law

Laws don’t mean much to an outlaw, and even less to a rogue president who routinely overturns them by arbitrary decree.  Barack Obama’s decision to unilaterally implement what is essentially the DREAM Act — legislation that is opposed by a majority of American citizens and has been rejected by the United States Congress — is just the latest abuse of authority in a seemingly endless litany of executive usurpation:

The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.  The change in policy could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally, according to a senior administration official speaking to reporters Friday.

Unchecked by Congress or the courts, Barack Obama engages daily in wholesale larceny, and what he’s stealing is America’s freedom:

 Obama’s Historic Presidency (By: AJ, Hat Tip: MJ)

“Historic” may be an understatement when describing Barack Obama’s Presidency. When we consider what Obama has done in his first term, it is easy to see that he has excelled in many areas that prior Presidents have never thought to tread. As we explore some of Obama’s historic achievements, his definition of “change” becomes clearer.

Unemployed College Graduates: For the first time in US history, there are more jobless people who attended college than those who didn’t; a historic Obama achievement.

Poverty: The US now has the highest poverty rate – ever! All prior Presidents failed to plunge more families into poverty than Obama. Imagine how many more families can slide into poverty if Obama gets a second term. He’ll be able to beat his own historic record.

Food Stamps: Obama has broken all records when it comes to doling out food stamps. Before Obama’s Presidency, $39 billion from taxpayers was spent for food stamp recipients. In 2012, $81 billion is now spent on food stamps thanks to Obama’s historic increase in less than 4 years in office. He’s done an outstanding job of implementing the Cloward & Piven strategy.

Unemployment Rate: If the labor force was the same size now as when Obama took office, unemployment is at 11%. The historic decline of the US labor force during Obama’s Presidency has put us back to what it was in 1981. If we include people who are underemployed in today’s labor force, the unemployment rate is actually 14%. Even if we consider the BLS unemployment rate, which was 7.3% when Obama took office, we know he promised it wouldn’t hit 8%. Well, it has remained above 8% throughout his Presidency and has remained high for the longest time-period in recorded history. Obama has decreased private sector jobs and increased government jobs. Since there are 7.7 million less working people since Obama took office, his current claim that he created over 4 million jobs is nothing short of a historic lie.

Economic Recovery: In 2008 under President Bush, TARP was a massive, and arguably deceptive spending bill designed to avert a professed financial collapse when the Carter-Clinton-Cuomo “Community Reinvestment Act” chickens finally came home to roost. Just months later when Obama took office in 2009, he doubled-down with his Omnibus bill (filled with 9000 earmarks, which he signed behind closed doors), the largest Stimulus spending bill in US history, plus other 2009 spending bills passed by the Democrat-controlled House and Senate totaling $4+ trillion. Despite the most massive government spending in one year by any President – ever – Obama has managed to ensure the worst economic recovery – in history! But wait… Obama’s historic achievement gets better… since the Harry Reid-controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget each year since Obama’s 2009 $4+ trillion spending bills, continuing resolutions have refunded all of those bills. That’s right – all of Obama’s 2009 spending bills, including the failed 2009 Stimulus bill, get refunded each and every year (so we’ve had 4 Obama Stimulus’ since he took office). Truly historic, isn’t it?

Household Net Worth: “The Federal Reserve said the median net worth of families plunged by 39 percent in just three years, from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010. That puts Americans roughly on par with where they were in 1992.” Obama’s historic achievement sealed the deal on setting American families back 20 years. Just imagine how much farther back we’ll be if Obama is re-elected.

Gas Prices: The nationwide average was $1.84 per gallon of regular gas when Obama took office and it’s never looked back. Obama said that under his plan, energy prices would necessarily skyrocket. Obama is the first US President to fulfill such a promise with deliberate intent to cause significant, daily financial impact to all Americans.

Food Prices: Compare your family’s food expense to what you were paying less than 4 years ago and you’ll see the steep rise in food prices… not to mention the shrinking package sizes. Obama has seized on the rising food prices by inspiring large cities throughout the nation to ban Americans from feeding the hungry and donating to food banks. No President in the history of our nation has ever taken such a historic step.

Home Ownership: Obama’s historic success reversed 46 years of progress made by American families when home ownership hit its lowest level since 1965 on his watch and despite all his mortgage bailout gimmicks, slush funds and massive bailouts for government-owned-and-operated Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Corporate Tax Rate: Thanks to Obama, the US enjoys the highest jobs-killing corporate income tax rate in the industrialized world! Businesses are handing over more of their hard-earned dollars to Obama than in any other industrialized country on the planet. This is a historic achievement which enables businesses to feed Obama’s government leviathan rather than spend that money on salaries and benefits for new employees.

National Debt: Obama has spent more of our money than any head-of-state in the history of the world. In less than 4 years, Obama succeeded in over-spending by over $5 trillion, causing our national debt to rise beyond our entire yearly US GDP. In other words, he spent all of the $2 to $3 trillion per year that taxpayers gave him, plus an additional $1.3 trillion each year, which caused an accumulated debt in excess of $5 trillion in less than 4 years. [Note: National Debt was $10.6 trillion when Obama took office; it’s now nearly $16 trillion]. In addition, the amount of US Debt held by the Federal Reserve (a private banking cartel) increased by a historic 452% under Obama and now sits at $1.688 Trillion.

US Credit Rating: For the first time in the history of our nation, we lost our AAA credit rating. No other US President has ever achieved this. Obama’s accomplishment in this area is absolutely historic.

Industry Takeovers: Food, healthcare, banks, student loans, energy, land, homes, farms, cars, water, the internet, the media… and the list goes on. Obama has taken over more private sector industries than any other President in history. In addition to nationalizing numerous industries to put an end to our pesky free market system that’s made America the most generous, advanced and prosperous nation the world has ever known, Obama’s masterful assault extends to controlling what we, as individuals, must do and cannot do with regard to our own bodies, our faith, our families and all other aspects of our lives. Obama’s historic achievement in this arena is unprecedented.

Small Businesses: Remember when Bush opened the door for Obama to take over the auto industry and dealerships were forced to close? Obama hand-picked and dictated the closure of dealerships owned by people who leaned ‘right’ politically. Also, from the start of his Presidency, to the outrageous assault against Gibson Guitars, to all the people Obama put out of business (fishermen, farmers, workers in the oil, coal and natural gas industry, retailers, restaurants, etc.), to the burdensome regulations from Cass Sunstein that prevent people from even starting a business, Obama has waged a historic war against small businesses and has done a spectacular job of de-industrializing America. If re-elected, we won’t need to worry that our children can no longer put up a lemonade stand or have a bake sale; we’ll be worried about feeding our children. Obama’s mission of transforming America into a third world country will be complete – something no US President in the history of our nation has ever even attempted.

Religion: Obama is carrying out the most intense and vicious attack against religion, in violation of the first amendment, than any President in the history of our nation. As David Barton said, “The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.”

United Nations: Obama is the first US President ever to preside over the United Nations. Our Constitution forbids it, but Obama wouldn’t be historic if he followed the laws of our land.

Russia: “Believing himself off the record, President Obama, then in Russia, leaned over to outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and said in reference to prospective negotiations on reduction of American missile defenses: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” In response, Medvedev replied in English, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladmir,” meaning to incoming President (and de facto Russian dictator) Vladmir Putin.”

National Security Leaks: Obama’s White House is responsible for the most dangerous and numerous national security leaks of our time. Costing Navy Seals and Special Ops Forces their lives, Obama released the identities of those who took out Osama Bin Laden. Also, from the Stuxnet cyber warfare against Iran – to Obama’s kill list- to the 2009 release of CIA memos – to divulging Britain’s defense secrets to Russia – to revealing Israel’s defense secrets to Iran – to drone strikes – to releasing details about the newest underwear bomb device, Obama’s White House has been on a treasonous rampage by publicizing information that threatens national security and puts American lives and U.S. interests at risk. What adds to the historic nature of these crimes is Congress’ inability to appoint a Special Council to investigate. Obama has decided to have his Department of Injustice (Eric Holder) appoint special prosecutors to investigate the executive branch AND the legislature. Really? Unbelievable, isn’t it? Perhaps Eric Holder will want Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to be the first legislator investigated since she publicly stated, “I’ve been on the Intelligence Committee for 11 years and I have never seen it worse, I can tell you that” regarding the Obama White House leaks.

Black Panthers: Obama’s injustice department dropped the charges against Defendants in the worst case of voter intimidation in our lifetime. Obama’s historic mandate, carried out by Eric Holder ensures that the pursuit of justice is based solely on skin color. Violating our anti-discrimination laws – in other words, letting criminals get away with their crimes based solely on the color of their skin – is truly historic and reverses everything we accomplished regarding Civil Rights that ensure all men are treated equally regardless of the color of their skin.

Fast and Furious: In 2009, Obama’s DOJ rolled out their new “Fast and Furious” gun program (after Obama and Hilary Clinton falsely claimed that 90% of the foreign guns found in Mexico come from the US). Obama’s new program sent thousands of US guns to Mexican drug cartels, gangs and murderers who used them to kill Mexicans and Americans. There are many historic aspects to what Obama did, not the least of which is that he and Eric Holder have yet to be held accountable for their crimes. If you think Watergate was bad, it’s nothing compared to this. The mainstream media silence is deafening – and also historic.

Beheading’s in America: Obama’s open-border policy is a historic success and the beheading’s that have been happening in Mexico are now occurring here on American soil.

Suing States: For the first time in history, this President is not only suing states that are trying to protect Americans from foreign enemies who cross our borders (i.e. states are trying to enforce the laws of our land that Obama refuses to enforce), but Obama has taken it to an unimaginable level. He teamed up with dictators from other countries to jointly fight against US states that are trying to protect the American people.

Voting: Obama’s historic fight against states that are doing what they’ve always done in cleaning up their voter rolls before an election is unprecedented. Removing dead people, felons and illegal’s from voter rolls will not be tolerated by Obama. He’s also fighting states who want voters to show their ID… you know… like showing your ID to his TSA, FBI or at any of his government buildings if you want to enter; showing your ID in stores if you want to buy alcohol, write a check or use a credit card; showing your ID at public schools when you want to buy lunch, at universities or to police when they ask to see it. Obama’s assault on states trying to ensure free and fair elections is an assault on all of us and marks another historic Obama achievement.

Other Noteworthy Obama Achievements

Golf Games: “President Obama is nearing his 100th round of golf — a significant milestone indeed. How many people outside of Florida’s retirement communities have time to play 100 rounds of golf?”

Fundraising: “All told, he has now attended 163 re-election fundraisers for his campaign and the Democratic Party – almost double the number George W. Bush attended in his entire first term (86) and more than any other president in history.

Lavish Vacations: “The past few years have been a time for sacrifice for many, but not apparently for the Obama’s.”

President’s Work Schedule: Obama’s late-to-rise and partial work days are unprecedented.

There are other areas such as NASA, the NDAA, the war in Libya, the Muslim Brotherhood in our White House, Obama’s role in the Arab Spring, etc. which we’ll explore another time. For now, when we consider just the items delineated in this article, there is no denying that Obama’s Presidency is historic and the impact he has had on our country is undeniable.

Although his campaign slogan is “Forward,” it is clear he is taking us backward. Jobs, economic stability, national security, etc… he has taken us backward by decades, as reflected in home ownership at its lowest since 1965, the labor force at its lowest since 1981, poverty, food stamps and debt at their highest level in history…

If this is the kind of change you are happy with, don’t forget to vote for Obama in November… or don’t vote at all because that will help him win too. But if this is not the kind of change you want, make sure you are registered, get to the polls on voting day and help us make sure that Obama does not get a “historic” second term.

    From Human Events: Obama imposes new immigration policy; Congress reacts

    Writing on his Facebook page, Florida Republican Congressman Allen West agreed. “This is yet another example of executive branch overreach,” said West. “We have a legislative process that ensures representative governance by the consent of the American people. This action should be crafted into legislation, debated in committee and brought before the House and Senate for vote, with accordance of our Constitutional Republic way. Secretary Napolitano is an unelected administrative bureaucrat who does not have the right to make governing decisions for this country. It is apparent that the goal of the Obama administration is not to govern, but rule by edict.”

    West also noted the irony that “Secretary Napolitano would not assist our State of Florida with ensuring the integrity of the voting process but she can make a unilateral decision about who can reside in America.” This is a reference to the Homeland Security data that was withheld from the state of Florida when it sought to confirm the citizenship of numerous registered voters. The state charges this denial of access by DHS was unlawful, and has filed suit accordingly.

    Congressman Peter King (R-NY) of the House Homeland Security Committee said “the Administration is overstepping its authority by weakening immigration laws without Congressional approval.” He was also critical of recent reports that a “catch and release” policy for low-priority border violators would be imposed on Border Patrol agents. He said his committee “will be launching an immediate review into the possibility that DHS will direct Border Patrol agents to conduct selective enforcement.”

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) declared via Twitter that “President Obama’s attempt to go around Congress and the American people is at best unwise and possibly illegal. This type of policy proposal, regardless of motivation, will entice people to break our laws. President Obama chose politics over leadership. ‘Hope and Change’ have become bait-and-switch.”

    And from Big Government: American Immigration Council: ‘Dream Come True’

    The American Immigration Council, a group supposedly dedicated to “Insisting that our immigration laws be enacted and implemented in a way that honors fundamental constitutional and human rights,” is cheering President Obama’s unilateral decision to refuse enforcement of immigration law for young illegal immigrants. “Today’s announcement will create the necessary space to allow Congress to craft a more permanent solution that will extend legal status to these young people who are American in all but their country of birth,” says the group in an email. It’s a “Dream Come True”!

    [...] It’s obvious from the tone and tenor of the statement that AIC isn’t interested in the rule of law, or whether Congress is involved in the process at all. All they care about is ensuring that illegal immigrants remain in the country. And it’s precisely the support of groups like the AIC that President Obama was seeking when he decided to undercut existing law in order to achieve his political goals.

  2. Just because they won’t need an ID to vote is no reason to think Obama is only looking for some help this November, is it? This clearly against the laws of this nation but impeachment is the only recourse and that’s not going to happen with this Senate.

    To impeach Obama and remove him from office, we would have to have elected enough honest people to Congress and the Senate. That we did not do. So we are stuck with him. How long. That depends……

    From the Daily Caller: I, Barack Obama

    We learned two things today: President Obama can apparently nullify laws he dislikes and he doesn’t much care for questions from mortals, especially the uppity journalists at the Daily Caller.

    [...] this dangerous precedent, which goes against democracy, the rule of law and our Constitution, is also deeply hypocritical. A major battle cry of liberals leading up the election of President Obama was that his predecessor in the White House had aggrandized too much executive power. An opinion piece published by the left-wing New York Times in 2008 summed up the liberals’ theology on the matter: “One of the biggest challenges that will be facing the next president: bringing the United States government back under the rule of law.”

    In reality, the rule of law was in much better shape before Mr. Obama’s tenure. His use of White House czars — powerful and unaccountable to the Congress — is worrisome. The passage of Obamacare wasn’t exactly a lesson in transparent, deliberative democracy. He has previously turned his back on laws he dislikes (e.g., the Defense of Marriage Act) rather than seeking their repeal. And now this.

    But it was a pretty good day if you’re Obama’s kind of “dreamer” and you were previously impeded by some mere federal law.

    From the Ulsterman Report: Obama Goes All-In On Courting Latino Vote – “Welcome to America”

    [...] Regardless of where you stand on the illegal immigration issue, what is being done by President Obama here is an incredibly dangerous precedent of executive power abuse. Unable to get support from either Democrats or Republicans in Congress, Barack Obama is simply moving forward during an election year to alter national immigration policy for the sake of attempting to secure more Hispanic votes. And if President Obama is allowed to practice such abuses now, future American presidents will also be allowed to do so then – and the once long-standing American system of checks and balances will quickly be replaced by something resembling a monarchy far more than a republic.

    Lastly, Latino voters would do well to remember that it was the Obama administration that armed known criminals with weapons that soon after were used to kill hundreds of Mexican civilians. The administration did so with reckless abandon and without consent or input from the Mexican government.

    Good job.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Thanks, FX. Based on the Obamian example of enforcing only those laws with which he agrees, I think I’m going to start obeying only those with which I agree. The courts, after all, do like to honor precedent.

  16. Great post! This bold and blatant disregard for the Constitution is almost shocking this close to the elections. I would have almost expected this after elections (assuming he gets reelected). It shows the desperation of the Administration. It is quite frightening. I believe this is an impeachable offense. I ask the question on my own blog, what else does he have to do for us to rise up and demand impeachment? Thanks for all the research and time you put into this post. I look forward to seeing more. Keep fighting the good fight!
