Based on his subversive actions, by definition Barack Obama is indeed making war against America, and it’s high time Congress responded by declaring their own war on a man who became a domestic enemy the day he violated his oath by refusing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama)
“Obama has NO constitutional legal authority whatsoever to alter, circumvent, subvert or otherwise ignore the standing laws of the United States concerning Immigration and Naturalization.” — North American Law Center
“It is no accident that Obama is announcing amnesty on November 20th – Mexican National Revolution Day.” — Free Republic
“It is the sense of Congress that this purported Executive Order is a usurpation of the legislative power vested solely in the Congress of the United States and, as such, is null and void.” —Proposed Concurrent Resolution Of Congress
Barack Hussein Obama must be the only graduate in the history of Harvard University that can’t read:
Article I – Section 8, under the enumerated powers of Congress, the U.S. Constitution assigns all legal authority to establish rules and regulate United States Immigration and Naturalization solely to the U.S. Congress, which has indeed established a uniform set of rules for immigrating to the United States and becoming a United States citizen.
Article II relative to the Executive powers of the Oval Office makes no mention of any law-making authority whatsoever, any powers to regulate Immigration or Naturalization rules, or any power to circumvent or subvert the Laws of the United States as established by Congress. There is also no mention of Executive Orders or special executive powers in Article II of the U.S. Constitution. (REPUBLICANS CAN STOP EXECUTIVE ORDER AMNESTY DEAD)
Nonsense, of course. Obama can read — off a teleprompter, at least. He knows damn well what he’s doing is illegal. But, like every tyrant that ever lived, he’s decided that not only is he above the law, he IS the law.
Obama’s favorite justification for his executive action is that “Congress failed to act.” No, Mr. President, Congress did not fail to act, it chose not to act in granting amnesty. There is a difference. A determination not to act is, by itself, a deliberate act. This is how the framers constructed our system of government. Congress considers and debates a great many bills. Not all of them pass. This is not “failure” in the conventional sense, but decision by declination. It constitutes a prudent and calculated process.
But the president uses this contrived “failure” as a pretext to arrogate the authority of another branch of government. He wields his pen to legislate by executive decree. He well knows he is exceeding his power … The president’s executive order to legalize illegals by nullifying existing law, constitutes a stunning abuse of office: usurping the power of Congress, while abdicating his duty to uphold and enforce the laws. (Three things that are illegal about Obama’s immigration plan)
Now that Obama has crossed a constitutional Rubicon, or in this case the Rio Grande, it’s the supreme duty of the American Congress, Democrats as well as Republicans, to stop him. The nation probably deserves more; it certainly deserves no less.
