We Must Fight Tyranny

constitution and obamaBarack Obama is the president who has committed the most crimes in history, including high treason, dereliction of duty, and criminal negligence. From the very beginning of his presidency, he has shown comtempt for the Constitution and our laws. In 2001, Obama said that “the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties full of constrains imposed upon us by our Founding Fathers.” Obama hates those “constraints” since he wants to govern in a dictatorial manner.

 

Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote an article entitled “Our President and the Constitution: Barack Obama has gone rogue” which was published by FoxNews on March 5, 2015. Judge Napolitano is a frequent contributor to the FoxNews channel and an expert on the Constitution. He raises these questions: “Can the president rewrite federal laws? Can he alter their meaning? Can he change their effect? Anyone who has studied middle school civics or high school government or college political science knows the answer. Of course, the answer is no!

Sadly, President Obama has ignored our Constitution from the day he assumed power in January 2009. As time has gone by, the president has turned into a lawless and arrogant tyrant with delusions of grandeur. Obama has boasted that he can govern without Congress by using his phone and his pen.

Judge Napolitano explained that in 2012, President Obama signed executive orders that essentially allowed approximately 1.7 million unlawfully immigrants, who arrived in the nation before the age of 16 and are not yet 31 years of age, to stay in this country. If these immigrants met certain conditions that Obama invented out of thin air, they will not be deported. In 2014, Obama issued additional executive orders that essentially made the same offer to about 4.7 million undocumented immigrants, without the age limits that he had made up.

In January 2015, 26 states filed a lawsuit against President Obama’s executive orders that gave legal status to approximately 4.7 million of undocumented immigrants in the United States. On February 16, 2015, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas allowed the lawsuit to proceed on its merits. In his 50-page opinion, Judge Hanen wrote that “it has been recognized that the resources of the states are drained by the presence of illegal immigrants” and that “these damages unquestionably continue to grow.” He also stated that Obama’s executive actions represented a “genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle”.

Judge Napolitano pointed out that in late February 2015 the bureaucrats who are appointed by the president to regulate broadcast radio and television to the Federal Communications Commission ruled that it has the authority to regulate the Internet, even though federal courts have twice ruled that it does not. About the same time, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, whose director is appointed by the president, proposed regulations that would ban the bullets that can be fired by an AR-15 rifle. This rifle has been the target of radical leftists for many years because it looks like a military weapon. But owning an AR-15 rifle is a lawful under the Second Amendment of the Constitution and millions of Americans have purchased it.

How can the purchase of bullets for an AR-15 not be permitted? If one is not allowed to buy bullets for this rifle, it would render it useless. Writing regulations that have the same effect as laws by federal employees prompted by the tyrant who lives in the White House are violations of the Constitution.

Now the Obama’s press secretary told reporters that the president is seriously thinking of signing executive orders intended to raise taxes on corporations by directing the IRS to redefine tax terminology so as to increase corporate tax burdens. Judge Napolitano stated the following: “He (Obama) must have forgotten that those additional taxes would be paid by either the shareholders or the customers of those corporations, and those shareholders and customers elected a Congress they had every right to expect would be writing the tax laws. He has eviscerated that right.”

What is going on here with the Tyrant-in-Chief?

Judge Napolitano explained the following: “This is the exercise of authoritarian impulses by a desperate president terrified of powerlessness and irrelevance, the Constitution be damned. I say “damned” because when the president writes laws, whether under the guise of administrative regulations or executive orders, he is effectively damning the Constitution by usurping the powers of Congress.”

Anyone who understands our Constitution knows that Article I, Section 1 says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” Obama asked Congress to write the laws that he wanted and when Congress declined, he issued executive orders in violation of the Constitution.

Obama has made our Constitution and Congress irrelevant. Obama announced his “We Can´t Wait” campaign in 2011 by stating the following: “We can´t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won´t act, I will.” Obama has virtually declared himself a dictator by announcing that he intends to govern by executive fiat.

Judge Napolitano wrote the following: “Here is a president who claims he can kill Americans without due process, spy on Americans without individualized probable cause, start wars on his own, borrow money on his own, regulate the Internet, ban lawful guns, tell illegal immigrants how to avoid the consequences of federal law, and now raise taxes on his own. One of the safeguards built into the Constitution is the separation of powers: Congress writes the laws, the president enforces the laws, and the courts interpret them. The purpose of this separation is to prevent the accumulation of too much power in the hands of too few — a valid fear when the Constitution was written and a valid fear today.”

Some Americans are fearful that Barack Obama will not walk out of the White House in January 2017 or even that presidential elections will not be held in 2016

Since President Obama has ignored the Constitution and the laws of our nation since 2009, there are some Americans who worry that he may remain in power indefinitely by manufacturing a crisis and cancelling presidential elections. Joseph Farah wrote an article entitled “Will Obama leave office in 2017?” which was published by WND on March 7, 2015. Farah stated the following as examples of Obama’s contempt of the law:

  • He abused his executive authority for the purpose of effectively changing immigration law, even after admitting repeatedly that he had no constitutional authority to do so.
  • He conducted military intervention in Libya without congressional approval. (Actually he did much more than this. After he overthrew Qaddafi, Obama sent tons of weapons from Libya to Turkey to Syria which ended mostly in the hands of al-Qaeda-linked terror organizations.)
  • In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun store owners to illegally sell thousands of firearms to Mexican drug dealers, resulting in the deaths of many including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
  • He gave $535 million in taxpayer dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, claiming it were for a revolutionary “green energy” startup called Solyndra that would create 4,000 new jobs. The company quickly went bankrupt, after selling its product for less than the cost of production. By publicly overstating the company’s financial condition, Obama broke the same law that resulted in Martha Stewart, a private citizen, going to prison.
  • By appointing dozens of White House “czars” without seeking Senate confirmation, Obama violated the Constitution according to Democrats Senator Robert Byrd, D-W.V., and Senator Russ Feingold, D-Wis.
  • He signed Obamacare into law despite the fact that it was a revenue bill and did not initiate in the House of Representatives as per the Constitution.

Farah believes that President Obama himself may not even be constitutionally eligible for office due to the questionable “birth certificate” he produced after years of demands from the public. So with all of this history – and much more – Farah asks this question: “Why do we assume Obama will step aside willingly from the presidency following an election in 2016?”

Farah stated the following: “I’m not saying he won’t. I’m just asking why. And judging from the number of questions I’m getting along these lines from the public, I’d say there’s great concern out there across the fruited plain.”

Farah reminded Americans in his article of all the many previous promises made by Obama that he has reneged. Regarding his authority to change immigration laws through executive orders Obama stated the following: “This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that I’m the president of the United States; I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed. And Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system. And what that means is that we have certain obligations to enforce the laws that are in place even if we think that in many cases the results may be tragic. … We’ve kind of stretched our administrative flexibility as much as we can.”

Are Americans certain that a presidential election will be held in 2016 and that Barack Obama will leave office in January 2017? However, we currently have a man in the White House who respects neither the law nor the American tradition of peaceful changes of power.

Regarding Obamacare, before it was implemented, Obama promised: “No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people. If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” On ISIS Obama said “I didn’t call the Islamic State a ‘JV’ team.”

Farah concludes his article by saying the following: “Again, do I think Obama will leave office in January 2017? Yes I do. But, with a track record like this – and, actually much worse – should we simply take it for granted?”

President Obama is famous for stating that the many scandals that have plagued his administration took him by surprise. Furthermore, he has said that he was completely unaware of the situations until he learned about them by reading the newspapers. Even though President Obama communicated with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton using her private email address with her own server, he lied last week by saying that he learned about it by reading the newspapers. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton broke federal law during his four years in that office by writing over 55,000 emails not using the official government address but her own private email with her own server at home.

Congressman Trey Gowdy, chairman of the Benghazi Select Committee of the House of Representatives, has stated that the emails relating to Benghazi have not been turned over to his committee by Hillary Clinton or the State Department in spite of having been requested long ago. While everyone is concentrating on whether these latest scandals will hurt the presidential aspirations of Hillary Clinton in 2016, no one is discussing the fact that President Barack Obama was also breaking the law by communicating with Secretary Clinton via a private email instead of via the official Department of State’s email.

On March 9, 2015, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters the following: “The president was not aware of the details how that email address and how that server had been set up or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act. The president did email with Secretary Clinton. I assume he recognized the email he was emailing back to.” It is obvious that Obama is the Liar-in-Chief in the White House.

Barack Obama´s assaults on the Constitution

David Limbaugh wrote an article called “Obama’s ongoing assault on the Constitution” which was published by Daily Events on March 6. 2015. Limbaugh explained that many Americans consider President Obama a threat to the Constitution due to his disdain for the separation of powers, shown most recently in his plan to bypass the Senate to make an arms deal with Iran.

The Founders understood that throughout history, the real threat to liberty had always been a strong highly centralized governmental power. Therefore, they created a system of government to prevent the consolidation of excessive power in the federal government.

The Framers of our Constitution established a system of federalism, which divided powers between the federal and state governments. They also enumerated specific and limited powers granted to Congress and added the Bill of Rights. To give power to the states they added the Tenth Amendment, which reserved powers to the states and the people of all the powers that were not granted to Congress. For example, education was not mentioned in the Constitution. Therefore, education belongs to the states. This is why Common Core is a violation of the Constitution.

In regards to the powers granted to the federal government, the Framers, in an effort to avoid excessive centralization, distributed the functions of government into three coequal branches, the legislative, executive and judicial — known as the separation of powers. They also provided for a system of checks and balances among the three branches to guard against expansions of their power.

David Limbaugh wrote that Obama has been exercising powers outside the scope of his constitutionally prescribed executive authority. As previously stated Obama appointed radical White House czars to serve with all the power of Cabinet officers but without being confirmed neither by the Senate nor subjected to congressional oversight. The president has abused his power from the very beginning of his presidency with premeditation, announcing that he would govern through “executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues.” As already stated, Obama arrogantly said that he has a pen and a phone and thus he can circumvent legislative authority whenever he wants.

Limbaugh pointed out that in implementing Obamacare, the president “granted exemptions and suspended deadlines at his sole whim and even granted federal subsidies to people in states that had not set up an exchange, in direct violation of the law, as his advisers have admitted.” Obama unilaterally reversed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gay service members. His Environmental Protection Agency passed illegal regulations on carbon because Congress had refused to pass a cap-and-trade bill. There are many more examples.

Limbaugh explained that most recently, Obama said that he has the authority to make a nuclear arms deal with Iran “without so much as conferring with the Senate — much less getting its approval, as required by the Constitution’s treaty clause in Article 2, Section 2.” Limbaugh pointed out that Obama understands that executive agreements are used to cover matters solely within his executive power or those made pursuant to a treaty or an act of Congress. The Framers wanted to limit the power of the presidents so they imposed a requirement of a supermajority of the Senate for ratification of treaties.

An arms deal with Iran could result in this militant theocracy’s acquisition of nuclear weapons, which would be a serious threat to our national security and that of our allies, especially Israel. Limbaugh stated the following: “If Obama successfully formalizes such a deal, will there by anything left of this Constitution we all claim to so revere?

Iran is an existential threat to the United States, Israel, and the West

Retired Admiral James Lyon has accused President Obama of being anti-American, Anti-Western, pro-Iran, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood as you will see in the short three minute video below. He discussed the many missed opportunities that the United States had to bring down this radical Islamic regime, which is a major threat to our national security and that of our allies, beginning with President Jimmy Carter until now. Congress must approve any deals negotiated by Barack Obama, who is a hidden radical Muslim, since it could damage irreparably our national security.

Iran already controls four other countries in the Middle East: Iraq, except for the Kurdish territory, Yemen, parts of Syria and Lebanon through its militia Hezbollah. This president simply cannot be trusted to negotiate in favor of our nation. Intentionally, Obama is the worst negotiator in the White House in our history, with the exception of Franklin Delano Roosevelt who gave Russian dictator Joseph Stalin all of Eastern Europe.

 

William R. Graham, Henry F. Cooper, Fritz Ermarth, and Peter Vincent Pry wrote an article entitled “Experts: Iran Now a Nuclear-Ready State, Missiles Capable of Hitting U.S.” which was published by Newsmax on February 1, 2015. These individuals are experts on national security and nuclear issues. Their backgrounds are as follows:

  • William R. Graham served as President Reagan’s science adviser, administrator of NASA, and chairman of the Congressional EMP Commission.
  • Ambassador Henry F. Cooper was director of the Strategic Defense Initiative and chief U.S. negotiator to the defense and space talks with the USSR.
  • Fritz Ermarth was chairman of the National Intelligence Council.
  • Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a congressional advisory board, and served in the Congressional EMP Commission, the Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA.

The experts explained that in spite of intelligence uncertainties and unknowns about Iran’s nuclear weapons and missile programs, “We know enough now to make a prudent judgment that Iran should be regarded by national security decision makers as a nuclear missile state capable of posing an existential threat to the United States and its allies.” They wrote that on January 22, 2015, The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran deployed a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) “whose range far exceeds the distance between Iran and Israel, and between Iran and Europe.”

Iran has sent into orbit satellites weighing over a ton. The experts have pointed out that this means it could also deliver a nuclear warhead against the United States or any other nation on this planet. Moreover, Iran has orbited several satellites on “south polar trajectories passing over the Western Hemisphere from south to north, as if practicing to elude U.S. Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars and National Missile Defenses, which are oriented to detect and intercept threats coming from the north.”

If the Islamic regime of Iran is able to produce nuclear weapons, the Ayatollah could order its military to use one of its satellites to explode an atomic bomb on the center of the United States at a high altitude. Such an explosion of a nuclear weapon detonated over the center of our beloved country will generate an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) field across all 48 contiguous United States. The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) will probably destroyed the entire national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures. Within a few months, more than 80% of the Americans will die of starvation.

Is this a danger real? Absolutely! The experts have indicated that Iranian military writings describe eliminating the United States with an EMP attack. United States Representative Trent Franks in congressional testimony given in December 2014 said that an official Iranian military document endorses making a nuclear EMP attack against the United States. The document describes the decisive effects of an EMP attack no fewer than 20 times. Iran has missiles capable of delivering a nuclear weapon. But, does Iran have a nuclear warhead?

The expert pointed out that in 2008, Mohammed ElBaradei, then director general of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), warned that Iran could develop a nuclear weapon within six months. The IAEA nuclear watchdog has repeated this warning every year since. We are aware that the negotiations with Iran were supposed to be completed two years ago after a period of six months of negotiations.

President Barack Obama has kept extending the deadline. Many experts and this writer believe that Iran is negotiating endlessly so that one day its rulers could just simply announce that they are ready have a nuclear weapon. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was severely criticized because several years ago he made similar statements to IAEA officials, which of course were true.

The experts wrote that on January 20, 2014, former IAEA Deputy Director General Olli Heinonen warned that Iran could build a nuclear weapon in two to three weeks. He also admitted that this estimate was based only on Iran’s known capabilities — not on what Iran may be capable of doing or may already have done in secret facilities. Iran has underground facilities suspected of being used for nuclear weapons development to which the IAEA has repeatedly been denied access. The IAEA has found out that Iran has experimented with implosion technology, necessary for making more sophisticated nuclear weapons. IAEA also discovered plans for a nuclear warhead that could fit on Iran’s missiles.

The experts wrote the following: “We know from our own experience that developing a re-entry vehicle (RV) for a nuclear missile warhead is not all that difficult. The U.S., working from scratch and using the technology of over 50 years ago, in 1955, developed its first RV for the Thor, Jupiter, and Atlas missiles in just a few years. Nor is it necessary for Iran to test a nuclear weapon in order to develop a missile warhead.”

On September 6, 2007, Israel conducted a successful airstrike on a nuclear reactor in the Deir ez-Zor region of Syria killing many nuclear technicians. North Korea had built the nuclear facility at the request of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Iran financed the Syrian nuclear reactor. Israel estimated that Iran paid North Korea between $1 billion and $2 billion for the nuclear reactor. Iran and North Korea have been strategic allies for many years. Iranian scientists have reportedly participated in North Korea’s nuclear tests. Therefore, Iranian scientists have a great deal of knowledge in making nuclear weapons.

The experts believe that Iran’s ICBM capability and their proximity to nuclear weapons necessitate that “Iran be regarded as a nuclear missile state — and as a menace to the entire world — right now.” The experts strongly recommend the following: “Congress and the Obama administration should give high priority to passage of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act and the SHIELD Act, which will protect the national electric grid and other critical infrastructures from EMP attack. Holes in the National Missile Defense need to be patched, and the U.S. nuclear deterrent modernized.” In fact, it is very alarming that these steps have not been taken much earlier since there are many nations that are capable of conducting an EMP attack, such as Russia, China, and North Korea as well as some day Iran or other radical Islamic regimes.

The last recommendation made by these individuals is that the United States should do it can to overthrow Iran’s oppressive mullahs through popular revolution that should be encouraged. This writer agrees with this recommendation and it is his opinion that the United States, together with its ally Israel, should conduct a surprise air attack to destroy all nuclear reactors and the plutonium facility being built in Iran, if this radical regime is about to produce nuclear weapons. Additionally, the United States and Israel should target the location of the Intercontinental ballistic missiles and destroy them as well.

The states should challenge legally and not comply with all unconstitutional and illegal government regulations issued by the Obama administration

Michael Bastasch wrote an article titled “McConnell to States: Don’t Implement EPA Regulations” which was published in the Daily Caller on March 4, 2015. He explained that 4489846Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent a message for states to oppose the EPA’s plan to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants: Defy the EPA’s rule.

Senator McConnell stated the following:

“The regulation is unfair. It’s probably illegal. And state officials can do something about it; in fact, many are already fighting back. Don’t be complicit in the administration’s attack on the middle class. Think twice before submitting a state plan — which could lock you in to federal enforcement and expose you to lawsuits — when the administration is standing on shaky legal ground and when, without your support, it won’t be able to demonstrate the capacity to carry out such political extremism. Refusing to go along at this time with such an extreme proposed regulation would give the courts time to figure out if it is even legal, and it would give Congress more time to fight back. We’re devising strategies now to do just that.”

Michael Bastasch explained that when Senator McConnell was chosen to lead the Senate, he promised to fight back the EPA’s rule designed to cut power plant emissions 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. The illegal rule will result in more coal-fired power plants being shut down, raising power prices and forcing the coal industry to lay off more workers. Republicans have said the EPA plan violates the Clean Air Act, mainly because it takes away a state’s ability to set its own environmental agenda. Under the EPA’s plan, states must find ways to reduce power plant emissions. If they fail to put forward a plan, the federal government will take over their clean air policy.

States need to stand tall against an increasingly oppressive federal government which is overreaching in all areas. States need to assert their rights given to them by the Framers of our Constitution. In this instance, they need to nullify the illegal EPA’s rule. Already a dozen states have sued the Obama administration over the legality of regulating carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.

Senator McConnell said that “In short, this regulation threatens to hurt a lot of people without doing much for the global environment. In fact, it could even make things worse by chasing industrial activity overseas to high-polluting countries like China.” He added that “So for now, hold back on the costly process of complying. A better outcome may yet be possible.”

Conclusion

Our beloved country is rapidly losing liberty and freedom under the increasingly criminal, repressive, corrupt, scandal-plagued, and tyrannical administration presided by Barack Obama. Not only is the lawless president usurping the powers given by the Framers to Congress but also those given to the states. Will Congress and the courts do anything about Obama’s multiple violations of our Constitution and our laws? Yes, they can and they should do it immediately.

What would be the proper response to Obama’s repressive regime? There are several actions that can be taken to resist tyranny by individuals, Congress and the 50 states:

First, the House of Representatives should file impeachment charges against Obama for committing high treason in Libya and for the many other crimes that he has committed during the more than six years that he has been in power.

Second, lawsuits should be filed each and every time the president violates the Constitution with executive orders, executive memos, or regulations that have the same effect as laws. Everyone should file lawsuits, Congress, the states, the churches, all types of institutions, businesses, corporations, and even individuals.

Third, Congress should use the power of the purse. If a government agency is abusing its authority, such as the Internal Revenue Service, EPA, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Health and Human Services. Congress should drastically cut the funding of that agency. Congress should not have an omnibus budget bill to fund the government for the entire year since failure to approve it would shut down the government. Instead, the Congress needs to pass separate bills funding different agencies.

Fourth, states need to nullify and ignored all executive orders and regulations issued by federal departments and agencies, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s recommendation to the illegal EPA rule on carbon emissions.

Fifth, the people should demonstrate in the streets of all the cities against the tyrannical and repressive Obama administration. Why not march to defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights which are under serious attack by the Obama regime? Tea party, conservative, and religious organizations demonstrated massively against ObamaCare and were instrumental in taking over the House of Representatives in 2010.

Sixth, all the evangelical churches across the nation should organize and ask pastors, priests, and other religious leaders to register parishioners and participate in the 2016 election, such as Mat Staver and the Liberty Counsel and others are trying to do. This is not the time for religious leaders to say “we do not want to get involved in politics.” The Church has to defend Christianity and our Constitutional Republic. Remember that the Church played a major role in the American Revolution. If our nation becomes a totalitarian nation ruled by a world government, pastors, and priests, and other religious leaders may end up in prison.

In 2012, only 50% of evangelicals registered to vote and of those only 50% voted. This meant that only 25% of the evangelicals cast their ballots. Our country’s future is on the line. All people of faith must organize and vote in all future elections. No one can stay home. Freedom and our Constitutional Republic are at risk.

Seventh, Americans should become informed as to what the Obama regime is doing to our nation. Everyone has a circle of influence made up of close friends, associates, and family members. Attend conferences, such as Mat Staver’s Awakening, share information with each other, write to members of Congress, and join organizations that fight for freedom and liberty. Never give up on the United States of America, the best country in the world!

Eighth, Americans must demand abandonment of the electronic voting machines since anything transmitted electronically can be captured and altered. Our nation must return to paper ballots. Additionally, all 50 states must demand each voter to present a picture I.D. Voter’s registration lists in the states must be purged of dead people and those who have moved to a different jurisdiction. These measures will insure free, fair, and transparent elections in the future.

Ninth, the Congress must insist that it has to approve any deal that Barack Obama makes with Iran or any other nation since the President cannot be trusted to negotiate in good faith on behalf of the United States.

Tenth, Americans need to pray every day to God and ask for His protection against the enemies within and outside our nation.
