As we risk losing constitutional governance forever, who will step forward to preserve our rule of law?

I’ve spoken on this issue previously, and it is truly nonpartisan –even Georgetown Law Professor Jonathan Turley, has addressed this issue, as well as Alan Dershowitz.

The topic is regard for the rule of law — our Constitution — in America. As I write this, we are once again being treated with blatant disregard by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her four years of using private emails in her official duties — and I don’t mean supplementing her official email — this is sole usage of private email backed by a private server in her personal home.

So the folks at CNSnews.com wanted to remind you of the disturbing actions being taken by our federal government:

“The rule of law is in grave danger, as federal regulators use ever thinner legal pretexts to enable vast public policy changes without votes by our elected representatives. In a span of just seven days, the FCC declared the Internet a public utility, Congress acceded to DHS implementing executive amnesty, the president used a veto threat to protect the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ambush elections rule, and the Supreme Court’s four liberals showed they are not just willing but enthusiastic to allow the IRS to ignore the plain language of Obamacare — King v Burwell case on federal healthcare subsidies. A great week for regulators, but a terrible week for everyone else.”

“The FCC order regulating the Internet was written by political operatives in the White House, is over 300 pages long and – even though it was approved on a party-line 3-to-2 vote on February 26 – has still not been released to the public.”

And in typical progressive socialist fashion — using intimidation and coercion as tactics – “liberal progressive pressure groups funded by $196 million from George Soros and the Ford Foundation, are launching a major effort to scare Congress – the legitimate legislative branch of the federal government – into sitting on their hands and not acting on the issue.”

Ok, let me just repeat that, George Soros — not the Koch Brothers – is funding groups to force the Congress not to act against the regulatory fiat issued by the FCC. Can you just imagine for one minute what would be happening in the liberal progressive media if this were a GOP executive branch?

And if you bring this to the attention of the public — well, that ol’ Saul Alinsky machine turns and takes aim at you. Let me make myself very clear, not a single liberal progressive will ever intimidate or coerce me. And that includes your Islamic fascist friends like CAIR.

This CNS piece left out the Obama executive action against AR-15 green tip ammunition — and I’m probably going to invest in an AR-15 myself. CNS also didn’t mention Obama’s consideration of using executive action to raise taxes – a complete violation of the Origination Clause — which we discussed here.

All of this reminds me of the words of political savant Gwyneth Paltrow who said we should just let the president do what he wants. And if that is the mentality of te rest of America — not just Hollywood liberals — then how long does our Republic have?

That’s why it is absolutely vital we have someone running for president in 2016 who will honor the oath and commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law. Someone who will reign in the executive bureaucratic state and reverse this very dangerous trend of the past six years — and we still have two to go.

Last year, the people arose and rejected the policies of President Obama and voted in a GOP House and Senate majority. But what did that majority do this past week? They voted to fund an illegal and unconstitutional action by President Obama as they funded the entire Department of Homeland Security. Why?

Was there such a fear of blame, even when they were standing on the side of the rule of law? Why were they incapable of communicating that they were not going to fund an unconstitutional decree? Could it be that the intimidation and coercion is effective against the GOP, even in a majority position?

Last year in December the GOP surrendered the greatest asset for their incoming majority – the “power of the purse” — with the CROMNIBUS bill. They promised to not fund the DHS line associated with the president’s unconstitutional executive action on immigration (if you need a reminder, Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 enumerates the power on naturalization to the Congress, not the president).

However, 73 House Republicans joined with the Democrats, while two-thirds of the GOP majority stayed committed, and the full DHS was funded, illegal immigration amnesty, et al. Even Speaker Boehner, third in line to the presidency, voted to fund this unconstitutional action. His vote was in violation of the “Hastert Rule” that advocates if two-thirds of the House GOP majority votes a certain direction, it is the direction of the House GOP Conference.

My point is, when there is no one standing up for the rule of law in Washington D.C. where do the American people turn? In whom can they trust to restore constitutional governance?

Well, needless to say, it won’t come from the progressive left — as we’ve seen over the past six years, certainly this week. As well, the question is, who in the GOP will take the mantle of being a fearless Constitutional Conservative? Who out there doesn’t fear the billions of George Soros and Tom Steyer?

The concluding paragraph to the CNS piece is very appropriate, and alarming:

“We are, if the American people don’t wake up and demand better, on the brink of losing our constitutional form of government forever in favor of a soft tyranny of federal regulators constrained only by elite opinion and quadrennial presidential elections.”

The progressive left knows, as the Middle East maxim states, with the camel nose under the tent, the rest of the body will follow. The American constitutional form of governance will not survive another progressive socialist presidential administration that rules by edict using coercion and taxation to advance its agenda of economic servitude and equality of outcomes.

We can never advance the policies of growth, opportunity, and promise if we suffer under the politics and tyranny of a governing philosophy that is antithetical to our fundamental system — which as Obama promised, is being fundamentally transformed.

I’m so afraid you are right Mr. West. I’m very afraid for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s sake that our Republic is lost. I’m even more afraid that America is the only country that is strong enough to stop the rise of Islam, and if we fall, what will the future hold for my loved ones? I’m getting to the point where I wonder if Jesus will be returning soon, lest no one will be left to be saved. God bless you and God bless America!

How do you people function with the FEAR you carry around all the time??

Marijw
Guest

It is good to have an element of fear just as long as it doesn’t rule you. Fearing for the future welfare of your family is not fear mongering. What is scary is the willingness of many to perpetrate lies and then those who believe those lies. So if I understand your line of thinking the lawlessness that prevails today is a good thing and those who stand for morals, truth and lawfulness are the evil tin foil hat people.

Paul Sheridan
Guest

It’s not helpful if the things you’re afraid of are nonsense. If you want to be afraid of things that could realistically endanger your family then you should worry about heart disease, cancer and car crashes, not the demise of the Republic and global Jihad.

Andy Martin

Having your head up your ass as far as radical Islam is concerned is not healthy either.

When you’ve killed as many Jihadists as I have then you can talk, pumpkin. Until then just keep trying to get your own head out. You might want to try some lube.

BTW, are Obama and Bill Clinton chicken hawks too? Or is that tag reserved for those who disagree with your denial of a terrorist threat here?

Paul Sheridan
Guest

For the record: I’m not saying terrorism isn’t a threat, I’m just saying that it’s blown out of proportion. More Americans are killed by lightning strikes each year than terrorists.

Andy Martin
Guest

How is it blown out of proportion? Do you think our nation overreacts when it comes to defending us here from terrorism? Was your involvement in the war on terrorism an ‘overreaction? And thanks for the idiotic analogy.

Paul Sheridan
Guest

Yes, we overreact. People are not very good at thinking about risk which is why we’re all still taking our shoes off at the airport for no good reason.
You’re asking if my involvement in the disastrous quagmire that cost nearly 5000 American lives in pursuit of WMDs that turned out to be imaginary was an overreaction? I served my country the best that I could and I didn’t do anything I’m ashamed of but how else could you possibly describe it?

Andy Martin

It applies to anyone who’s enthusiastic about sending other people’s kids off to fight a war but wasn’t interested in fighting themselves. For example: Obama: No because he’s not looking to start a war. Clinton: Same as Obama. John Kerry: The anti-chicken hawk, he served and THEN decided he was against the war. John McCain: No because he’s a hawk but he fought his own war. GWB: Yes because the air national guard is cheating when there’s a real war on. Mitt Romney: Not sure, he avoided the war but I don’t get the impression he was insincere about his… Read more »

Be a good little liar and tell me where I want to send anyone off to fight.

Get up to speed on what Obama wants lefty. He does want to engage ISIS last time l looked. And Clinton sent troops to Bosnia and Kosovo. Thanks for covering for your leftard chicken hawks hypocrite.

Paul Sheridan
Guest
Last I checked you were endorsing West’s ludicrous plan to fight ISIS in Syria and Iraq with flamethrowers. They don’t carry themselves you know. And Obama has steadfastly refused to commit ground troops to fight ISIS and has done everything he could to get US troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. For which he taken an unbelievable amount of crap from chickenhawks like you. It’s the difference between putting the minimum number of American troops at risk to accomplish necessary goals and spending other people’s lives like lottery money. If I could think of a Democrat chickenhawk I’d list one,… Read more »
Andy Martin

B-b-b-bbut you’re good with Obama being given authority to wage war with ISIS Paula. And don’t give me that ‘Obama won’t commit troops’ crap. How the hell do you know? HE wants to go to war with them. So tell me Paula, how is HE not a chicken hawk? Clinton sent troops to fight also. He did his best to avoid the draft. Your punk POTUS Obama got the hell out of Iraq knowing that ‘jay-vee’ was waiting. Now he wants to go back? I’ve sent no one to fight. Obama is about to Paula. So get some consistency.
Paul Sheridan
Guest

You’re a big fan of consistency from other people aren’t you? You don’t like being called names but it’s basically all you do on this site. So be a good little chickenhawk and go fluff your feathers somewhere else, I’m done with you now.

Andy Martin

Be a good little Obamite dick sucker and keep covering for the slimy libs you shill for Paula. Obama and Bill Clinton are chicken hawks by your own definition. Now go suck on ’em soldier.

They will protect their families. They took the oath and some… Read more »

When Beck ask the guy why he disagreed, the Man piped up and said You Can’t Eat Gold. For over a minute there was total silence on the radio then Stew told Beck, “You Know Something??? He’s right”.

Sorry, folks… we’re screwed and we’re going to stay screwed. The libs won during the GWB years and we didn’t even recognize it. All Baraq has done is cement the victory.

We are now a nation in which a feckless community agitator can legislate with the stroke of a pen while the branch of government responsible for legislating either cheers if they are one party or hides under the bed if they are the other party.

Who would ever have thought this could happen?

Hastert rule is not a law. Democrats have no such rule. The adults had to eventually step up and do the work of the people. If your majority causes repeated shutdowns of routine government functions, it cannot govern. Boehner and Mcconell don’t want to send that message ahead of an election cycle. As usual they pretended for the rabid masses to have leverage they didn’t really have and had to fold when the President called their bluff. That scenario is becoming like groundhog day.

Andy Martin

Get over shutdowns Ruffy. They mean nothing.

Upvote is because of fat fingers posting from a smartphone. Why do they keep passing one week measures to avoid shutdowns if they don’t matter. Why do republicans always try to use them as leverage.

Don’t lie Ruffy. Your up-vote is still there. Do you ever NOT lie?

Have you always been selective in your faux outrage Ruffy? Was it okay for the dems to shut Reagan down 8 times?

According to Webster’s dictionary, treason is conduct marked by overt acts aiming at overthrowing a government. Those acts include weakening or obliterating the laws established by the government. Sedition means conduct leading to commotion or resistance to authority but without overt acts. These being authentic definitions, I accept your label – because treasonous progressives are doing their best to dismantle my US Constitution, curtail my God-given rights, and transform the Republic into a socialist-democracy. Seditious behavior is the first deterring step open to concerned citizens. Let’s now examine how these two definitions function. For example, I believe abortion is murder.… Read more »
