-Robert and Tom-
I have several articles today that should raise your heart rate and make you madder than hell if you love America. The first one I heard got me madder than hell, but it proved to be fake. Thank God, but it is something that I wouldn’t put past Obama. It was that, Obama signed an executive order indicting Officer Darren Wilson.
The White House has announced that President Obama will sign an Executive Order indicting Officer Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown. True to form, President Obama was quoted as saying “The hell with the Constitution, double jeopardy be damned!” This comes as no surprise given his total disregard for the Constitution of late and his willingness to act unilaterally more like a King, than an equal third of a government, designed to provide a system of checks and balances representative of all American’s.
Now this turned out to be not true….as the article went on to say a few paragraphs later,
Will the American people stop him? I say it’s doubtful… Let’s face it, most people could care less what happens in government as long as they continue to live their privileged lives, or receive enough “entitlements” monthly to survive on.
If you are livid right about now wondering how in the hell something like this could possibly be true, then chances are you are one of the more informed American’s familiar with the Constitution and principles this nation was built on… And you are right… This story is total BULL SHIT! It is total satire, with just a slight hint of some current events and recent trends with government in it.
The scary thing is, with just a smidgen of truth smeared into this, it was enough to make you start to take it seriously… Enough to make you pause and wonder… Is this true? That should tell those of us that have our eyes open, that we have serious problems in this country and that the very foundation this nation was built on is shifting and in danger of collapsing.
So I ask you… My fellow American’s… What will you do? Will you work to change things? Will you fight to restore this country to the exceptional position we once held in this world? Or will you just continue to accept the status quo? How do you think the average American can help restore this nation to greatness?
Now all I can say is, thank God that one is not true…but like the article said, before you knew…..bet you were getting mad.
But this seems to be true. From Christian Political Party, comes this one, Attorney General Eric Holder: International Law Trumps The Constitution
Posted on November 29, 2014 by Christian Political Party
Every now and then, news breaks in the Obama administration that is so stereotypical, it is actually depressing. You might want to sit down for this.
Attorney General Eric Holder, made infamous by Operation Fast and Furious, is currently arguing before the Supreme Court that United Nations treaties trump the United States Constitution.
That’s right. The sitting Attorney General, charged with upholding and defending the Constitution, is arguing before the highest court that international law is in fact the law of the land.
The case in question, Bond v. United States, is actually pretty ridiculous. The defendant is charged with using a toxic substance to harass a friend who was having an affair with her husband. Under the law, this case would normally be handled at the State-level. But Federal prosecutors instead charged Bond with violating the Chemical Weapons Convention. This would be like taking a perpetrator of a domestic hate crime and instead charging him or her with genocide.
This case is basically a complex liberal experiment to see how far they can push the boundaries regarding the enforcement of international law. An Obama administration victory in this case could have huge ramifications for other contentious issues like abortion, citizenship, and even the Second Amendment.
It’s no secret that the Obama administration is looking to enact gun control by any means necessary. That means exhausting all options. The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty would provide an excellent way to limit Americans’ access to firearms without dealing with Congress. The problem is, the treaty cannot become law without the Senate ratifying it (which won’t happen). If the Supreme Court rules in Obama’s favor, the U.N. Arms Treaty could become the law of the land anyway.
The funny thing is that the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty specifically prohibits the exportation of small arms to countries if there is a reasonable expectation that they would be used against civilians. If Holder wins this case and ushers in the implementation of the treaty, his involvement in Fast and Furious, leading to the death of countless Mexican civilians, would make him an international criminal.
But since Holder would be in charge of investigating himself for international crimes, he’d likely be acquitted…
All jokes aside, Bond v. United States represents a grave risk to the sovereignty of this great country and the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution. Everyone always posits that the liberals want to replace the Constitution with U.N. law, but no one actually expected them to try to.
If the Courts rule that international law is law of the land, and if the Executive branch is more than willing to implement this ruling, then only the Congress can stand against this rising tyranny.
A lot of times, Congress’ power can be overstated. But the Constitution’s system of checks and balances exist for a reason. If one or two branches of government fall to tyranny, then a third branch would still remain to herald the cause of liberty. With the way the Supreme Court has been ruling lately, and Obama’s burning desire to shred the Constitution, the Congress is all that stands between state sovereignty and global governance.
Unfortunately more often than not, Congressmen and Senators wouldn’t recognize creeping tyranny if it slapped them in the face.
That’s where we come in. Believe it or not, we have reached a point in our history where we actually have to plead with our representatives to defend the Constitution from its domestic and foreign enemies.
If the Supreme Court rules in the administration’s favor, you can say hello to universal weapons registration. You want to buy a firearm? Good luck explaining why you really need one. And good luck getting your hands on one of those imported World War II rifles you’ve had your eye on.
Most of the time, slippery slope arguments are overblown. But there’s no exaggeration to this. Even when the Senate refused to ratify the U.N. Arms Treaty, Obama had Secretary of State John Kerry sign it anyway. Talk about defiance!
Now doesn’t it seem funny to you, that Obama’s policies were voted out in this last election, and Eric Holder has resigned, but, before he leaves office he continues his cronyism, and Obama gets beligerent? I think it is just what I expected folks. Obama is like a boy king who finds out the people don’t want to like him, so he uses powers he thinks are his to make the people do what he wants. What we see happening here is nothing more than little boys, throwing temper tantrums because they are being shunned by the people who a year or so ago were supporting them. Heck, even the media is turning away from them. How great is that?
God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us to continue our Common Sense.
