Has Anyone Seen Republican Leadership?
Obama is what he is, and, considering the stock that he was spawned from, it was a fait accompli that he would grow up to be the morally bankrupt narcissist he is. In circles not accessible to the public at large, we are aware of the threats and intimidation tactics he employed in his 2008 presidential campaign. And we continue to see him resort to the same tactics whenever he feels threatened. Quoting Albert Einstein: “The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
Specific to that point, where the heck are the Republicans? Where is the Republican leadership? Why are they passively compliant pursuant to his blatant and unrepentant disregard for the Constitution of the United States? Are not they sworn to uphold the Constitution as well? Are they blind to what he is doing? Are they in awe of him, in fear of him, or like him to the point that they will feign indignation when they are backed into the corner to do so? How many more impeachable offenses will Obama have to commit before they step up and honor their oaths? How many more Czars will they allow him to appoint as unelected determiners of policy? How many more Executive Orders will they just turn a blind eye to as he ignores and bypasses Congressional authority?
Obama is now threatening the Supreme Court of The United States in a way never witnessed in history. As Sher Zieve reported (Dictator Obama Issues New Threat To Supreme Court Over Obamacare; Infowars.com; 5/3/12):
In his latest display of his full USA federal government dictatorship over both the American people and the former co-branches of government, Dictator Obama is warning the Supreme Court to either rule in his favor or face severe consequences.
Fox News’ Martha McCallum advised Thursday that the Obama Administration has been quietly sending missives to the Supreme Court threatening that if it doesn’t rule in his favor on ObamaCare, Medicare will face disruption and “chaos.” Therefore, if SCOTUS rules in favor of the US Constitution, Obama & Co will begin its campaign to either destroy Medicare or make those on it suffer greatly. The Obama syndicate is said to be threatening to hold off Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals if SCOTUS does not comply with Obama’s demands and submit to him.
As an additional example of Obama’s illegal and (I believe) highly treasonous behaviors, on 1 May and 2 May Obama issued two additional unconstitutional and illegal Executive Orders. The first E.O., issued 1 May 2012, makes the USA subject to “international regulations” as opposed to looking to and following the US Constitution. Also, with this new E.O., the US FDA will now be able to be bypassed by International committees—thus, replacing the FDA with any international group which may be chosen. In essence, Obama is quickly eliminating US Sovereignty and selling the USA to the international “community.”
Suffice it to say, no one in Congress has issued even the proverbial “peep” over either of these illegal “orders.” Do the American people really want to continue to live under this blatant tyranny?
The second question is “Will the Supreme Court of the United States of America bow to Obama and give up its co-equal status to the dictator as the US Congress has already done?” If so, perhaps its time for We-the-People to recruit the Honduran Supreme Court who, along with their military, ousted its then President Manuel Zelaya who had become a dictator. Oppression under the Obama syndicate becomes worse each and every day, folks. Will we ever choose to go back to the sunshine?
Blogger “A Conservative Teacher,” on his blog of the same name, in a post titled, “President Obama Darkly Threatens Supreme Court; Does His Behavior Fit Definition of Bullying” wrote the following:
President Obama is a bully. Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, and this is exactly what President Obama is attempting to do with his latest speech in which he darkly threatened the Supreme Court regarding their impending decision regarding Obamacare, saying
I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.
It is worth noting that SCOTUS overturning an unconstitutional law passed by Congress is neither unprecedented nor extraordinary. If my memory serves me well, SCOTUS has overturned a law passed by Congress on at least 120 occasions. Conjunctive to that, has he forgotten (or intentionally dismissed) the fact that the job of the Supreme Court is to interpret the Constitution? That means it is their job to determine the Constitutionality of laws, be they Congressional in origin notwithstanding. Or is he prepared to argue the High Court acted in an unprecedented and extraordinary way when they ruled in Brown v. Board of Education? Obama claims to have been a Constitutional attorney and law professor–shouldn’t we expect him to know that? I know it and not only am I neither but add to that I’m working from memory.
The other thing he should know is that Congress is not democratically elected. That would indicate we are a Democracy and we are not. We have a Representative form of government. The Justices (save perhaps Kagan and Sotomayor) are his intellectual superiors on every level, it makes him appear puerile and petulant when he attacks them and attempts to diminish them. There is a reason the Founders, in their infinite wisdom, made lifetime appointments for the Justices–and it was to protect them and the Republic from would-be Marxists like Obama.
The question is: Will Republicans and Congressional members of good moral conscience stand up to a president who mirrors those of Cuba and Venezuela? If they will not, then we should take immediate steps to rid ourselves of them as well. The question is: Are we willing to do the hard work of removing those betraying us and our Constitution?
