“The president has no authority to do this. It’s against the law.” — Senator Jeff Sessions
“The definition of a ‘sociopath’ is a person with an antisocial personality disorder. They are often well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” – Wayne Root
The Obama “mandate,” if such a thing ever existed, is, to coin a phrase, gone with the wind. Or, more precisely, gone with the electoral tsunami that swept the
socialistsDemocrats out to sea by the boatload. Catastrophe at the ballot box made little difference, of course, to the unrepentant dictator who remained on dry land. His response was to load his executive pen with poison ink sufficient enough to order a metaphorical plague of locusts on the ingrates who voted. From global warming (which doesn’t exist) to illegal immigration (which does), Barack Obama plans to break the laws of the land to a degree unprecedented in American history:
- On the other side of the world, Obama determined as ever to bypass Congress (CNN)
- Obama to announce 10-point immigration plan via exec action as early as next week (Fox News)
- Obama is prepared to spend the remainder of his term unleashing sweeping executive actions to combat global warming. (Politico)
- This week, Obama came out in support of net neutrality, as he believes Internet services should be reclassified as a utility and something Americans have a right to. (ZDNet)
All of Obama’s illegal actions have one thing in common: the majority of Americans oppose them.
What Americans want, however, and what Barack Obama plans to give them have always been two different things. Take his legacy law, for example, that infamous piece of legislative legerdemain known as Obamacare:
One of the architects of the health care law was caught on camera saying the bill was written specifically so as not to be viewed as a tax. He then goes on to call American voters stupid…
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage, and basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass,”Jonathan Gruber said at the Annual Health Economics Conference.
Gruber was a key player in developing the law, and those remarks weren’t the only time an Obama adviser suggested the administration had pulled a fast one with the law.
“They proposed it and that passed because the American voters are too stupid to understand the difference,” he said.
Folks who thought they’d be getting lower insurance premiums and better service ended up with neither:
As distasteful as they may find it, if Obama insists on continuing to violate the law by executive decree, come January, Washington’s new legislators must vote to impeach, convict, and remove him from office. Anything less will render them and any future American Congress as vestigial an organ of governance as Caligula’s Senate.
