Obama’s blatant disregard of the rule of law

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Following his scathing critique of President Obama’s leadership over the last five years, Glenn offered a list of situations in which the President decided not to obey the law.

“I want to show you a list of the instances in which the President has decided that he’s not going to obey the law,” Glenn said. “He’s just going to change the law and pick and choose.”

“He’s done that with healthcare, singled out certain groups that don’t have to abide by it,” Pat said. “Defense of Marriage Act, ignored it – completely threw it out the window because he didn’t like it.

“He didn’t change it,” Glenn clarified. “He just decided not to enforce it.”

“They are not going to enforce the immigration laws, not going to deport people anymore,” Pat continued. “Citizens United. They whined about it again yesterday. Citizens United was decided by the Supreme Court. What do we always hear about the healthcare? It was ruled Constitutional by the Supreme Court. It’s done.”

“However there’s two things on that. The purse strings start in the House of Representatives and it was put in the Constitution for this very thing – that in case people were making a mistake, it’s the representatives – not the Senate, not the president – those closest, they believed, to the people, the representatives said this can’t happen. The representatives could defund. That’s Constitutional. Saying my friends in this labor union don’t have to pay it. That’s not constitutional. But defunding something is Constitutional,” Glenn explained. “I don’t know a single soul in America, even the progressives, that would say this is right… Big government and big corporations don’t play by the same rules. The President just gave waivers to the law. So, these companies don’t have to abide by the law. That’s not constitutional. Tell me that’s right. No one can tell you that’s right.”

When it comes to the current debt ceiling debate, you find similar flaws in the President’s actions.

“We’re going to raise the debt ceiling. We’re going to raise it a trillion dollars. That doesn’t mean we’re taking on more debt. Could I just ask for a definition? I hate to ask to go to the Webster dictionary. Please let me ask for a definition. Debt-ceiling,” Glenn asked. “That means your debt can go no higher than this amount. Why would you raise the ceiling saying your debt can go no higher than this amount? Why would you raise that a trillion dollars if you are not incurring more debt? Answer. It’s a game. This is the way they think they can get away with it. ‘We’re not incurring more debt. We’re just paying the bills that we already incurred.’”

“No,” Pat said, “you can do that with the current debt ceiling.”

“But no, because we’ve just adopted healthcare,” Glenn concluded. “We got the numbers wrong, so we need to take on more debt because the numbers don’t add up.”

    Remember, Obama is a narcissist and sees himself to be a god-king, messiah, savior, and perfection incarnate in all ways and means. He is also an insane radical extremist whose hatred for all things American are manifest to no end.

    He is, in his eyes, above the law, and the ends justify the means. 

    Soon enough, unless he is removed from office, we will have a full-scale dictatorship in place.

    Obama – completely insane, he needs to be removed from office before his madness leads him to lash out at everyone. When he does, there is no limits to how far he will ‘punish’ the people of the nation for his failures.

    The worst thing Obama could do is impose marshal law should things get really bad.  In order for him to succeed at that, he would have to have the following of the National Guard, Reserves, police, and other such organizations.  Personally I don’t believe he has a large enough following any more.  I’m sure there are those zealots that will follow him to the ends of the earth, but he is losing face more and more each day and the good people of this country…those that are awake anyway, are beginning to see through his and other government officials political games.  The people will eventually rise up and defeat this tyranny.  The days are numbered.  Obama will need to rely on other countries forces to bring us under control and I’m not too sure they would be willing to take on the force of the American people. We’ll just have to wait and see what goes down.

    Since when did the rule of law matter to Obama and his worshipers. They don’t care about the laws. They don’t care about civility or reason or logic all he and his army of fools care about is to rule over others to dictate what they think is moral and if you disagree with their god then they call you out for treason. The liberal left are like the brown shirts and the sad thing is they refuse to see themselves as Obama see them as pawns. Just like the left sees Blacks Mexicans and poor people as pawns If they truly care they would be free to think without persecution but When someone leaves their plantation like I have all you get is racism. John 15: 18-25 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.  If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.  Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well.  If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.  But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.

    Obama is not the only President who has done this but none of the others dared go to this extreme.  Our last 5 Presidents refused to enforce our immigration laws resulting in many of the problems we have today.
    As for Obama, he is so far over the top along with his Commie administration we will no longer have a nation if he is allowed to finished his term of office.  You KNOW we have tyranny in America when the government takes the 5th .  What is even worse, WE let them get away with it !

    He already has his troops all lined up. He has the NWO (new world order) and the UN behind him. They have troops from Germany and others training in a base in the South East part of New Mexico. He is sending our troops out of the USA, because he knows that they won’t kill the citizens. He is going to sweep the whole USA and take guns, ammunition and food for the Fema Camps. He and Hillary Clinton has gone to the UN last fall, 2012, and this year in March to have the UN treaty to have our guns taken away. For some reason it didn’t pass so here lately, as in Sept. 2013, John Kerry was able to do it. obammy is a disgrace to this country. When he was in congress he has vowed that he would be dictator in the w/h and tear down this country. His father hated the USA and he does too. He has from Day one of his administation be trying to destroy us. The citizens have been asleep and now they are beginning to fight for the USA. That is good, because we will be able to fight for our rights. THIS IS THE PEOPLES COUNTRY AND NOT THE GOVERNMENT. IT IS NOT obammy and his many minions.   MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA..

    Fine, but if WE THE PEOPLE allow it he will just keep going.   Part of that prob too is that the house probably has the votes to impeach and also over the debt ceiling obama is just pissed b/c he doesn’t have it all yet, GOD FORBID, but on that note the senate being of Dem control would not impeach this commie globalist lunatic.  If u wanted to destroy America lets c oh do what obama is doing and u have to be just blind to c it and go along w/it but it is up to us to stop it if we do not then he is not to blame we are for letting it happen

    If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States.
    I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”
    To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”.
    In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.
    And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .
    If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa.
    And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me.
    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.
    If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.”
    With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons, but not wise enough to control them.
    If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps.
    In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

    Then they will have a hell of a battle on their hands.  Those forces that are “out of the country” as you say WILL find a way to get back to the US if it comes under attack.  I believe most of the PEOPLE in these United States would be willing to die for our childrens country.  If they are not…then I feel very sorry for them and our future.
