Fork in the Road
Obama’s appalling reelection put the country on a path that has come to a fork. One way leads to strife — very possibly impeachment and even civil war. That’s the high road. The other way lies socialist dictatorship — and it is so close you can see it from here:
The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. …
The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.
Comrade Chairman Obama confirmed yesterday that he will go full dictator with the executive action approach:
“My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence. Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. … I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then I want to go ahead and take it.”
Even among the gutless wonders that constitute the Republican Party, some have noticed that using executive orders to circumvent our fundamental constitutional rights is an impeachable offense:
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.”
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said in a statement.
Thankfully there are still a few Americans left in America.
The esteemed constitutional lawyer Mark Levin sees other grounds for impeachment in the unacceptable power grabs contemplated by the Obama Regime:
On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin said that if President Barack Obama sidesteps Congress on the debt ceiling fight and attacks the Congress’ constitutionally enumerated “core power” — that is control over spending and taxing — through executive action, Congress will have “no choice” but impeachment.
Obama et al. will do whatever it takes to “fundamentally transform” America into an authoritarian socialist banana republic. We have to do whatever it takes to stop them.
This will require acknowledging the base of Obama’s power. I am not referring to welfare dependents deliberately bred to produce Democrat votes, but to the left-wing media establishment that placed and keeps him in power. Any attempt to defend the Constitution from this onslaught will be met with ferocious counterattacks from the media. These will send most Republicans to their knees as they whimper for clemency.
Only if there is a resistance with the courage to name the liberal media and its figurehead Obama as an implacably hostile existential threat to America and to fight them to the end will this country survive Hope & Change intact.
