What Are Republicans Waiting For?
What are Republicans waiting for? Why have they not so much as intimated they were going to finally hold Obama accountable for his unconstitutional actions?
Obama at the very least should be charged with “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The simple Wikipedia definition of same is: “[A charge that] covers allegations of misconduct peculiar to officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty [and responsibility], conduct unbecoming, and refusal to obey a lawful order.”
Are we to believe that there is not ample and credible evidence for Congress to convene a hearing pursuant to same? Are we to believe Congress cannot find a single instance of Obama abusing his authority or of him committing conduct unbecoming?[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]The fact that he is the only president in the history of America and quite possibly the only leader in history to conceal his background should have been cause for Congressional and judicial concern. As I have told others with proclivities similar to those of Obama, “the only reason a person hides things is because they have something to hide.” Obama holds the highest office in the most powerful country in the world. Shouldn’t someone in Congress have raised the issue that his veiled background necessitated investigation? Shouldn’t his refusal to provide what every president in history has provided call into question the validity of the oath he swore to be president; specifically, because his hidden background may well have led him to lie pursuant to his commitment to defend and uphold the Constitution?
As I wrote: “And what about the hundreds of millions of dollars that went to the Canadian company CGI for a website that wasn’t working? The same company that has Toni Townes-Whitley as its senior vice-president – the classmate and friend of Michelle Obama. In my column “Website, Smebsite: It’s A Game And The Joke Is On Us” (newdailyrant.wpengine.com; 12/12/13) I raised the specter of covert financial improprieties pursuant to the possibility of a portion of the website money being used as payola to CGI and backdoor money to Michelle Obama. But the Republicans did nothing.” (Obama Must Be Prosecuted For Healthcare Fraud; 11/18/14)
Obama was transpicuously exposed as a liar in his blatant attempt to cover up the truth of the murders he permitted to take place in Benghazi. Are we supposed to forget that he refused to raise finger himself and that he ordered our military not to respond to save the lives of Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty? Are we to forget that along with Woods and Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens also were murdered? With all of the pontificating and posturing the single most important question has yet to be asked: “Why did Obama refuse to lift a finger to save Woods, Doherty, Smith, and Stevens? Why did he order the military not to respond?
The attempted cover-up is one thing, but his reasons for refusing to even lift a finger is not only derelict it is as un-American as any act in the history of the United States.
Add to the list of charges his repeated attempts, including the most recent, to act as the effeminate dictator of some third world sewer, as he defiantly disobeys the Constitution and threatens Congress to legislate law as he sees fit. Which is exactly what he is threatening vis-a`-vis his threats of using executive orders to legislate amnesty.
Now, with his misdeeds, deception, lies, notwithstanding, and with one of the chief architects of obamacare revealing that Obama knowingly and intentionally committed fraud in order for obamacare to be passed into law, Obama lies again.
Questioned about Jonathan Gruber’s outlining and boasting about the fraud during a news conference in Australia, Obama said: “The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is no reflection on the actual process that was run.” Obama claimed to not have lied to the American people about obamacare, when in fact all he did was lie to the American people. Now he is trying to throw the person, evidence clearly shows helped him orchestrate the deceit with, under the bus. Or to be more specific – Obama is going to spin more lies.
But the truth is there for all to see. Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and others are on video acclaiming the importance and value of having Gruber involved in the creation of obamacare. Put succinctly, Obama lied to America in front of the world. Obama claimed Gruber had no involvement in obamacare but Gruber was paid well over $400,000 precisely for his involvement.
Sure it can be argued that he gave lawyer-speak by which he made a statement that those as morally opprobrious as Obama will parse claiming what he said wasn’t what he meant, and what he meant wasn’t what he said blah-blah. The problem with that reasoning is that Obama is the president. He is held to a higher standard and justifiably so.
The American people have long ago lost faith in Obama’s ability to lead. A recent Fox News poll found that an amazing six in ten voters believes Obama tells lies most or all of the time on important issues.
Dr. Walter E. Williams wrote: “The courts are bound by the Constitution’s Article 3. Part of the courts’ responsibility is to ensure that the executive and legislative branches of government uphold the Constitution. In that respect, the courts have been grossly derelict, particularly during and after the New Deal era.” (Obama vs. Us; 11/18/14)
James, a long time follower of my columns forwarded the following which reinforces my argument. The aforementioned items pursuant to the fraud Obama perpetrated to have obamacare passed into law, as I have discussed them are clearly violations of federal law.
Following is the link to Title 181 of the federal code which deals specifically with fraud and false statements: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/part-I/chapter-47
The whole of chapter 47 regards fraud and false statements, but sections 1033 and1034 are specific to insurance with section 1035 specific to health care matters. The law is perfectly clear that this debacle was a violation of federal law.
From this section of the law:
18 U.S. Code § 1035 – False statements relating to health care matters
(a) Whoever, in any matter involving a health care benefit program, knowingly and willfully—
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact; or
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations, or makes or uses any materially false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry, in connection with the delivery of or payment for health care benefits, items, or services, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.
Obama, as I noted in the article referenced above, Obama must be held to a higher standard than that of simple business owners and corporations. The definition of ‘Corporate Fraud’ is: “Activities undertaken by an individual or company that are done in a dishonest or illegal manner, and are designed to give an advantage to the perpetrating individual or company.” I would say that Gruber’s revelations are a transpicuous admission of the very definition of corruption, deception, and government fraud.
Obama’s lies and fraud pursuant to obamacare have resulted in untold injury to many previously injured and many who were previously affordably insured. Policies have been cancelled and in other instances premiums have increased as much as 400 percent.
Congress has an obligation to step up and hold Obama accountable. And SCOTUS has a responsibility to the Constitution to do same. Obama may envision himself a dictator, but this is The United States of America, it is not some third world banana republic.
We are beyond listening to congressmen give sound bites and speeches. We need and demand action. Either Congress takes action or we must take action to ensure that the next election they are voted out even if it means loosing seats. Because having the betrayers in office is tantamount to not loosing a seat anyway.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignnone /]
