Today this little gem came across my Facebook. Yes, our president actually said this.
I do not know who made it, but I did listen to the clip, yes, he said it on a radio interview.
The wonderful thing about our constitution is it's ability to grow with the country. Yes, it was written "way back when" but look how well it has served us. And if you take it apart piece by piece you can still see the brilliance. Obama, claiming to be a constitutional law expert, should know this better then anyone. So why would he say this?
Think about this, he was not raised in America. He was raised by people who believe socialism works, people who believe that America is the root of all evil, yet think beating a woman or stoning her for even talking to a man not her husband no matter how innocent is acceptable. He has promised to fundamentally change this country, this is one promise - the ONLY promise he ever made, that he fully intends to keep. By lying to the people of this country about hope and change he has taken both away from us. He is putting our country into a debt we may never dig out of and he is giving money and weapons to terrorists.
You might have the inclination to say that is all crazy talk, however, consider this. President Obama sent a memorandum that halted the law of our country that says we must NOT give aid to terrorists. Why? He knew that the Syrian rebels he sent aid to ARE TERRORIST, and this was his attempt to keep himself from being impeached. BUT I ask you, if all the laws of the land are subject only to the presidents whim then what good are the laws? There is a reason it is considered treasonous to aid terrorists, is this one man so magnanimous and brilliant that we are not to question anything he does. That is, after all, what it suggests when he alone can write off any law he chooses not to follow.
***** From the White House website:
" MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE
SUBJECT: Delegation of Authority Under Sections 552(c)(2) and 614 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as Amended
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 301 of title 3, United States Code, I hereby delegate to the Secretary of State:
(1) the authority under section 552(c)(2) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended (FAA), to direct the drawdown of up to $15 million in nonlethal commodities and services from any department or agency of the United States to provide assistance for the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) and the Supreme Military Council (SMC), and to make the determinations required under such section to direct such a drawdown; and
(2) the authority under section 614 of the FAA to determine whether it is important to the security interests of the United States to furnish such assistance to the SOC and the SMC without regard to any other provision of law within the purview of section 614(a)(1) of the FAA.
You are authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.
Along with that the president has signed executive orders that give him all power and control over everything that is necessary for us to live, in the case of a disaster natural or not.
*****You can read the text of the executive on the White house website here.
*****You can read the specific text including some commentary and history here.
Then you might ask yourself, why would he put it out there on the website.
1st, it's the law - for now.
2nd, unless you actually went to those sites from this post would you have otherwise?
The one thing this president and really any president from here out has in his/her favor is the ignorance and apathy of the American people. There are simply not enough of us who care. I see this changing. Will you be amongst those who follow their leader off a cliff like sheep, or will you start to care and educate yourself, and pay attention?
