Obama Breaks Oath of Office: Violates Law by Executive Order

leave a comment »


I have been very reluctant to discuss matters of impeachment on The Rabid Conservative since the entire Tea Party and the Right Wing has been dogging Obama (myself included) since he got into office in 2009. But I’ve kept back from the I-word because it’s just part of the droning downbeat from the Right. But last night, Obama did announce he was going to not follow immigration policy. Not enforcing the law is a violation of the law.

We have all sat back and waited as he announced, in the face of a demolishing defeat in the mid-term elections, that Obama would, by executive order, grant amnesty to people in the country illegally.  Regardless of what people want to call them, the point is, the law does not allow for these people to be in the country. 

Mr. Obama has acknowledged around twenty times that what he was doing without Congress was not right. That didn’t stop him last night though.

Did I mention that these people are in the country illegally? Their first act in the US was to violate federal immigration law. And they KNOW they are in the wrong because many of them live in America in secret. Why? Because they know they are not supposed to be here.

In fact, here is Jay Carney, his OWN former White House Press Secretary, indicating that what Obama is doing is what he said was unconstitutional. And although Carney is trying to defend him, even Anderson Cooper isn’t buying that he is only telling law enforcement that they can “exercise discretion”.

 

Obama Doing Exactly What He Once Said is Unconstitutional

Now, the liberals and the very racist support group La Raza is saying that Obama is operating within his legal limits. But is he? He was given a specific responsibility to uphold the laws of the United States, that “’he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed”. By executive order, he has elected to not enforce immigration policy. This is very similar to the use of Signing Statements, which the last few presidents have used to not enforce parts of the law that the President felt were unconstitutional (like the President has the right to declare laws unconstitutional – this is a power reserved for the Supreme Court).

This is not unusual to Democrats. During the years of George W. Bush’s second term, Representatives Conyers, Kucinich, and Wexler pushed legislation to impeach President Bush on 35 charges, one of which was the unilateral use of Signing Statements.

We all knew this was coming folks. Last night, he stepped over the line and it’s time to remove Barack Obama from office. He clearly does not respect the constitutional authority of Congress and is clearly frustrated at the fact that they are not sending a bill to him that he would like to sign.

I’m pretty sure isn’t much of a stretch to draw up articles of impeachment for Obama – although the entire process of impeachment has become a fad. Ever since Clinton got impeached for lying to a Grand Jury over Zippergate, the Democrats have been aching for some payback.  I would say, it’s time to impeach this Democrat too.
