Is Obama 'faithfully executing' the laws?
Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution demands that a US President "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed." Hence, the President is not only the Commander in Chief he is also the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Law Enforcement Officer.
Obama has failed his duty to faithfully execute the nation's laws in breathtaking cases for purely political reasons. The New Black Panther voter intimidation case was ignored despite the overwhelming evidence of criminality caught on tape. Not since Democrats wore the white sheets of the KKK have voting rights been so openly violated. The only sanction Obama's DOJ deemed appropriate was a promise by the New Black Panthers to not show up armed at polling places until Obama's next election in 2012. That kind of "justice" sounds like a punch line to a very bad joke.
Three things at once are happening with our border security circus that Monty Python could not top. The Democrat controlled Congress and the Obama administration stopped constructing a much needed fence on our southern border with Mexico. Yes, these are the same Democrats who demanded that the sovereign nation of Iraq meet the Democrat's frivolous "benchmarks" and kept moving the goal posts of success during wartime. (I am not sure, but I think Home Depot sells do-it-yourself kits to build "benchmarks," goal posts, and fences.)
Terrorists, drug traffickers, and slave traders are relentlessly breaching our border. The rights of the American people to be secure in their homes are being violated before our eyes. Kidnappings and murders are being allowed to flow into our nation along with the drugs. Yet Obama is not only openly hostile to his duty to enforce the border laws himself, he is obstructing those who would uphold the law.
Again, Obama's DOJ deems that it is within Obama's prerogatives to ignore his Constitutional mandate to take care that the laws be faithfully executed. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. "Sanctuary Cities" are nothing more than local officials deciding to openly violate the immigration laws for purely political purposes. And Obama stands with the lawless. If that is not enough to make your head spin, Obama's DOJ is now suing Americans who are doing nothing more than upholding the laws Obama's own DOJ won't uphold. What will Obama's DOJ do next? Side with the terrorists and start investigating the CIA?
If Obama is intent on leading a lawless nation where defenders of the law are prosecuted and the lawless are protected, then Americans are left with only one avenue of reprieve:
Send the New Black Panthers to Arizona to defend the border.
