Ladies and gentlemen rest assured it’s all smoke and mirrors
WASHINGTON, D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — In an attempt to dupe the general populace of the United States, House Speaker John Boehner released a memo Wednesday detailing his plans to oust President Obama politically. That’s right, Boehner has submitted legislation that may allow the House to sue President Obama.
Boehner wrote in a memo:
I believe the House must act as an institution to defend the constitutional principles at stake and to protect our system of government and our economy from continued executive abuse. The president has an obligation to faithfully execute the laws of our country. When this legislation is introduced in the coming weeks, I ask that you review it and join me in supporting it when it goes before the House.
However, rest assured its all a smoke show. Boehner wants nothing more than to gain the confidence of gullible Americans once again. His words mean nothing and will be backed with absolutely zero proactive action. Needless to say, Boehner’s a fraud, just another puppet of what is essentially a global crime syndicate, a mafia wishing to control the world at all costs.
Boehner’s memo went on:
For years Americans have watched with concern as President Barack Obama has declined to faithfully execute the laws of our country ignoring some statutes
completely, selectively enforcing others, and at times, creating laws of his own.
Article II, Section III of the Constitution of the United States dictates that the president, as head of the Executive Branch of our government, “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” even if the president does not agree with the purpose of that law. Under the Constitution’s separation of powers principle, only the Legislative Branch has the power to legislate.
On one matter after another during his presidency, President Obama has circumvented the Congress through executive action, creating his own laws and excusing himself from executing statutes he is sworn to enforce at times even boasting about his willingness to do it, as if daring the America people to stop him. On matters ranging
from health care and energy to foreign policy and education, President Obama has repeatedly run an end around on the American people and their elected legislators, straining the boundaries of the solemn oath he took on Inauguration Day.
Presidents have traditionally been granted a degree of latitude with respect to the enforcement of the law, and tension between the branches of our government is hardly new.
But at various points in our history when the Executive Branch has attempted to claim for itself the ability to make law, the Legislative Branch has responded, and it is
only through such responses that the balance of power envisioned by the Framers has been maintained. President Obama’s aggressive unilateralism has significant implications for our system of government, and presents a clear challenge to our institution and its ability to effectively represent the people.
If the current president can selectively enforce, change or create laws as he chooses with impunity, without the involvement of the Legislative Branch, his successors will be able to do the same. This shifts the balance of power decisively and dangerously in favor of the presidency, giving the p resident king like authority at the expense of the American people and their elected legislators.
