Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Obama vs. Obama: Executive Power vs. Immigration

In the first of a series, I’m going to compare and contrast the soaring rhetoric of Obama, the awesome teleprompter reader and the reality of Obama, the pathological liar who truly believes there was nothing great about America until he became president.

Today in Obama vs. Obama: Executive Power and Immigration.

First, three quotes from just last year, when Obama, the awesome teleprompter reader, made it quite clear he understood the separation of powers as defined in Article I, Section 1 of the United States Constition:

With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed — and I know that everybody here at Bell is studying hard so you know that we’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.

There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President. – Barack Obama, March 28, 2011

source: whitehouse.gov

Note the fact that our constitutional scholar of a president is well aware of the three branches of government and states quite clearly that he understands the executive branch has zero power to assume the duties of the legislative branch.

Two more quotes from less than a year ago:

Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. .?.?. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written. – Barack Obama, July 25, 2011

and

America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law. I don’t have a choice about that. – Barack Obama, July 25, 2011

source: whitehouse.gov

So we’ve seen three different quotes which show Barack Obama was fully aware that his ensuing actions a year later would be completely against his powers as defined by the Constitution.

Here’s the real Obama, a man willing to defecate all over the Constitution and sell out any principle if it helps his chances for re-election:

Obama grants amnesty to 800,000 illegal immigrants by executive decree, giving them free reign to live and work in America.

To hell with all those who played by the rules and immigrated here legally, to hell with the rest of the Americans still seeking jobs while Obama’s economy has given us unemployment over 8% for the longest stretch in U.S. history.

Most importantly, to hell with the checks and balances so ingeniously devised by our founding fathers to keep tyranny at bay. King Barry has now assumed the powers of lawmaker along with his role as chief executive. The final step is to neutralize the Supreme Court he so plainly despises and then Obama will have “fundamentally transformed” America into the third world dictatorship he’d always envisioned it could be.

  • Ok, so he’s a dictator and he believes in wealth redistribution?

    • Uh . . . yeah! Name me a single totalitarian state on the face of this Earth that is not left-wing and Socialist. You can’t because there isn’t any. In fact, if you go back through the history of the authoritarian state, all of them were left wing and socialist, even the Nazis your history teachers tried to brand as right-wing, they were the National Socialists. How many Tea Pariers do you know that would be down with the National Socialist party? None.

      Dictators and socialism, a perfect match made in hell.

  • And he’salso a bleeding heart liberal that serves as commander in chief over a war in Afghanistan?

    • The one bright spot in Obama’s presidency? He is definitely George W. Bush’s third term when it comes to the War on Terror. He even does Bush’s enhanced interrogation one better by simply assassinating American citizens and terror suspects from the sky.

      Strange how we don’t hear the shrill screams of protest from the left over Obama’s assassinations the way we did with Bush’s interrogations. Only thing that’s unfortunate from Obama playing judge, jury and executioner from the sky is that dead men tell no tales and we probably haven’t received any actionable intelligence from any terrorists from the moment Obama began his reign as king of the drones. He certainly did the intelligence agencies no favors by rushing to gloat over the Bin Laden kill when there were reports that we had a treasure trove of intel we could have acted on had we not alerted the world that Bin Laden had been killed, leaving the cockroaches to scramble just as sure as a light being flicked on in the kitchen.

  • The most obvious way in which you can do so is to shop around.
    That’s right, not only can you sell your junk automobile but, there is so
    much competition in the junk car industry that you can be sure to get a fair deal if you follow these steps.
    Oftentimes, you have to go out of your way to get what you want.
