Democrats ARE the “Existential Threat” they keep talking about!!!

The #Socialist #Democrats‘ new favorite term is “Existential Threat”. They toss it around like a little kid with a brand new toy in reference to “Climate Change”.

CO2 is actually GOOD for the planet, it is a by-product produced by human beings themselves!!! All of the trees and the plants on this planet “breathe” CO2 and “exhale” Oxygen, which human beings NEED to survive.

So their argument is flawed to say the least!!! Their BS “science” is designed for one purpose. CONTROL. They want to control EVERYTHING through government.

I am really sick of hearing how “Climate Change” is an Existential Threat!!! Big words and small minds don’t mix well!!

Let’s talk about the REAL Existential Threat. DEMOCRATS and the New World Order. They want to control EVERYONE on this planet!!! They want to micromanage your everyday life.

They want to control your diet, the information you are “allowed” to have, and even what information shows up when you do a search on Google.

The REAL Existential Threat we face as humans is these people who want to control us all!!!

That’s why they want to take your #Guns!!! You cannot exercise total control over people until you disarm them!!!

Friend………. They are looking to have TOTAL CONTROL over this planet and EVERYONE on it!!!

I personally believe they are such a threat to ALL of us that they need to be ejected from government altogether. Many of them BELONG in #Prison!!!

You better take notice NOW!!! Because they are fighting EVERY DAY to realize their dream of TOTAL CONTROL.

There have been more mass shootings in America since #Obama took office than there was in ALL OF HISTORY!!!

And the FIRST thing you’ll hear after each of these shootings is “Gun Control”!!! And “We must ban these guns and those guns and the other guns to guarantee our safety.

It has become such a regular occurrence that I have come to believe the Democrats themselves are involved in these mass shootings for the sole purpose of disarming YOU!!!

Nevermind the FACT that gun control would NOT have stopped a single one of these shootings.

Nevermind the FACT that disarming EVERY LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN in America WOULD NOT STOP THESE SHOOTINGS!!!

#Criminals do NOT obey the #Laws. So no matter what kind of law you create a CRIMINAL will ignore it!!! #Murder is already illegal!!! Most of these mass shootings occur in parts of the country that have the STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS!!!

So it’s easy to see that it does NOT work. They don’t care!!!

What they want is TOTAL POWER over EVERYONE on the planet!!! In order to achieve that they MUST disarm EVERY LAW ABIDING CITIZEN IN THE COUNTRY!!!

Look at New Zealand!!! Islamic Terrorists have carried out 34,772 DEADLY ATTACKS since 9/11.

And 1 Mosque gets attacked killing 50 people or so and New Zealand instantly wants to ban just about all weapons!!!

These people will do ANYTHING to get TOTAL CONTROL over YOU and your family, including stage mass shootings in my opinion!!! It’s up to YOU to stop them!!!

Join the NRA!!! Write every Congressman in #Congress!!! DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT until your last breath

with EVERYTHING you have!!!

It’s the ONLY thing that protects humanity from these people gaining TOTAL CONTROL over them!!!

You want to talk Existential Threats Democrats? IT’S YOU!!!

#Vote #Republican and defend the 2nd amendment with your LIFE!!!

Glendale, Arizona Nazi cops abuse an innocent man and go unpunished

Conservative Thinker  02/15/2019

I generally only share stories, I do not do a lot of writing myself. This story had me awake at 4 am this morning, I’m too mad to settle down. Too disappointed in the system to calm down. This is one kind of injustice that we as Americans cannot tolerate! We may as well live in Nazi controlled Germany once we let stuff like this slide!

Nazi style of police brutality on an innocent man video at:  http://bit.ly/2If6LgJ

VIDEO: Violent Police Brutality

Glendale, Arizona’s finest pulled in behind a vehicle on 07/27/2017 that had just turned into a motel 6. The officer approaches the parked car and asks “Are y’all staying here”. The occupant Johnny Wheatcroft answers “About to get a room” Wheatcroft is the passenger and is in the front with another man (driver) and in the back seat is his wife and their two son 6 and 11 years old. The next question Officer Mathew Schneider asked is “You guys got your IDs on you real quick?” Wheatcroft asked “Who me?”. The cop then says “All of you”.

The officers then claimed the reason for the stop was failure to signal when turning into the parking lot. The vehicle was actually already stopped when officers approached it. But my belief is that officers targeted these people because of how they looked.

The officers wished to run the occupants’ Identification cards to check for warrants. They could have cared less about a “turn signal”. This was all about checking them for warrants. Unfortunately for the officers,  the man knew his rights, so he asked them what he had done to warrant being asked for ID. The man was a PASSENGER in the vehicle NOT the driver. The police cannot just ask you for ID for no reason, they must have “probable cause” to LEGALLY do this.

Of course the police engage in lying to the public EVERY DAY!!! This day was no different. The officer did not care that he was violating the man’s Constitutional rights. He wanted to see his ID! Because you know, America has become Nazi Germany and you don’t HAVE any rights here anymore.

Johnny Wheatcroft was about to check into a motel room. He makes the mistake of digging through a bag of his belongings. Then Officer Matt Schneider says “Don’t reach in your bag man. You said you don’t have any ID I don’t want you reaching in there”. Johnny Wheatcroft apologizes very cooperatively “Oh okay, I’m sorry”.

Then the cop asked him “What’s your name man?” Wheatcroft questions the officer “Why am I even being asked?” and the cop replies “You said you don’t have any ID (inaudible)”. Then Wheatcroft says “I don’t need an ID bro”. Then the scumbag cop says “Yeah, if your a passenger in a vehicle you need ID”. Wheatcroft asked “Why’s that? I have an ID but I don’t have to give it to you, I’ve done nothing wrong”.

Anyway, then the scumbag (Officer Matt Schneider) says “Well I can take you down to the station and fingerprint you” Wheatcroft is like “For what?”. Schneider says “Because we made a traffic stop on the vehicle brother” And it devolves from there.

Let me tell you something. Police DO NOT have the right to ask you for an ID without probable cause that you have committed (or are committing) some kind of crime in ANY of the 50 states no matter what their law states! You are protected by the Constitution. Unless the police are detaining you they have NO RIGHT to ask for your ID.

Of course cops mostly view you as having no rights, so if you try to assert them they’ll just put a BS charge on you and take you to jail anyway. One way to know if you are being “Detained” is to ask them “Am I being detained?” If they say “No” then you don’t have to show them sh*t!!! Legally anyway. But just like the Nazis, police will find a way to screw you if they want to! So unless you have a camera crew handy, you may want to give it some thought. Here’s a link to a video about ID and the police. https://youtu.be/s4nQ_mFJV4I

Officer Mathew Schneider apparently has made an appearance on the television show COPS, where they chased a guy and let the dog chew on him for a minute before calling him off. He’s a real prize, but at least that guy had ran and had a warrant. Not that that’s an excuse. Here’s a link to the scumbag on COPS

Video: SCUMBAG Mathew Schneider COPS

Asserting your rights pisses the police off! Especially scumbags like this guy. You see…. He has a small winkie, or he was beat up as a child, or maybe he’s a closet homosexual…. Whatever his problem is he’s going to take it out on SOMEONE!!! Today it just happened to be Johnny Wheatcroft, who THOUGHT he was going to assert his Constitutional rights. Nazis just don’t give a damn about your rights!!! Can you imagine??? Can you imagine if that was YOU??? What about if it was your SON and Grandchildren in that car???

Guys like Mathew Schneider need to be locked in Prison. Using your badge to bully people and take them to jail is MUCH WORSE than people who just bully. This scumbag could have killed that man!!! I know for a FACT he traumatized the guys kids!!!

Poor Johnny and (I think) his wife too sat in JAIL for 3 months because he could not afford bail!!! 3 months!!! Then prosecutors dropped the charges after seeing the horrific footage. But the prosecutor didn’t go after the scumbag bully cop or his scumbag cohorts! A prosecutor has a responsibility to prosecute wrong doing, or so we thought.

If you are a sadistic power abusing scumbag like Matt Schneider you just get a pass in Glendale, Arizona. The FACT that the police department itself not only did not pursue charges, but they actively covered for the guy! I think the prosecutor who failed to charge the cops, the police chief, every officer present that day, and any officers in the department involved in covering it up NEED TO GO TO PRISON!

They should ALL be treated harsher than I would be treated for the same crime!!! Because they are in a position of trust, a position of enforcing the law. They should be held to a HIGHER standard than you and I!!! Check this out, this is their official response to their Crew of Nazi cops sexually assaulting this man and wrongfully imprisoning him and his wife, and sending his children to CPS after violently assaulting their father in front of them. This is their official statement and a 30 second clip of the nightmare where they try to claim one of the Nazis got “Knocked unconscious”. By the way, I’d say he was on the ground because he touched poor Johnny Wheatcroft as his partner was electrocuting him to death, and got a little charge himself.

Glendale Arizona Cover Story LIE

I’ve been up all night tweeting to Trump, the Senators of Arizona, every newsroom in America, along with many public figures and many leaders of the GOP. I’m pissed off about this. Are we as Americans going to sit still for abuses like this that go unpunished? This scumbag belongs at the end of a rope. But since we don’t do things like that anymore at the very least he needs to be prosecuted and sent to PRISON!!!

What Officer Mathew Schneider done to this man and his family is as wrong as it gets short of just outright murdering the man!!! Not only is he guilty of battery and aggravated sexual assault of Wheatcroft, he then locked the guy in jail FOR DOING NOTHING!!!

That’s justice huh? Frigging scumbag Schneider gets 3 days of paid suspension from work, and is out on patrol today, while poor Johnny Wheatcroft sits behind bars because he couldn’t afford the bond!!! I think his wife did too, not sure about that.

Add to that this innocent man’s children got to go to CPS, his vehicle was towed, and most likely (Unless he had a real good friend to pay his bills) he lost his car to the towing company, lost his house or apartment and all of it’s contents. His kids pictures, EVERYTHING! All because of this scumbag cop!!!

Boys in Blue, if you keep covering for guys like this you’re going to have problems!!! America is a nation of LAWS… And the police have to follow those LAWS just like the rest of us. If not, then this country is lost! We may as well get out the guns and ammo and get to it. Because I refuse to become a victim of a bunch of law breaking Nazis like this guy!!!

Enforce the law!!! Even if you enforce it each other. Because preferential enforcement is getting REAL OLD!!! Just like the DOJ and FBI who ALSO selectively enforce the laws.

They give Hillary Clinton and 10 other Democrats passes for “Lying to Congress” even when it has been PROVEN!!! But then you go and ARREST Roger Stone for the SAME EXACT THING! (without the proof)

It’s time to either straighten this country out or draw up battle lines, this kind of sh*t cannot continue. When the people charged with upholding the law are dishonest what kind of “LAW” do you have? I’ll tell you, you have MOB RULES.

You may as well be the mafia.

EVERYONE PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SHARE THIS!!!

CALL THE GLENDALE ARIZONA POLICE AND COMPLAIN!!!

CALL THE FBI AND DOJ

Trump, Democrats, and winning in 2020

I watched an episode of Tucker Carlson on FOX News the other day that I wanted to share with everyone. I’m not big on watching “News” no matter who puts it out. All of the news channels have agendas these days so you can’t really just get the “News”.

So what you end up watching an “opinion piece”. I guess this would technically be an opinion piece too….. But I’m not representing it as “News” like they do.

When Trump was running for office I was not one of his supporters by any means. His long history of voting Democrat combined with campaign donations he had made to far left players in the Democratic Party convinced me that he was quite possibly going to turn out to be “Hillary Clinton by Proxy”. I didn’t trust him, and felt he was more of an “infiltrator” in the Republican Party.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. And so far Trump has done a pretty good job, and has pretty much done what he said he’d do. So I’ll admit I was wrong about the guy. He has my full support these days. There is only a couple of things I’d really like to see him do that he has not done.

One of which is to put Hillary Clinton behind bars, along with Obama and Eric Holder. Wouldn’t it be nice if while Democrats investigate Trump for no reason at all, if Trump were to counter by charging his Justice Department with gathering evidence and prosecuting the corrupt administration which came before him???

The others were talked about on the January 09, 2019 edition of Tucker Carlson. Today’s thoughts comes from this episode, which I enjoyed and agreed with a good portion of it. Trump has done a great job standing up for the wall. But there is a couple of issues discussed in this video that he also needs to address. The abuse of Trump supporters is one, and the censoring of Conservatives by Tech companies is another. Trump should go after those who would harass his base, as well as go after tech giants who discriminate against them as well!!! If he does this I believe 2020 will be his. If not…. Someone else will promise to and quite possibly win.

I suggest that you watch the whole episode. Tucker talks about Democrats and how EVERY Liberal “News” channel marches in lock-step with Democratic talking points. The first part of the video shows numerous examples of Democrats pounding the phrase “Manufactured Crisis” into the heads of Americans. It’s sad. They resemble puppets.

At approximately 13:45 in the video Carlson brings Jonathon Harris (A Democratic Commentator) onto the show to discuss the #Wall. One thing is for sure, this guy wants to blame Trump for the government shutdown. He only does it 25 times or so. He is a professional double-talker and a liar, that is his job. He appeared to struggle keeping his talking points on track. And his attempt at claiming 5 Billion dollars for a wall was a “Waste of Money” didn’t seem to fly either. 5 billion only solves 1/3 of our #Immigration problem according to him. SOLD!!! I’ll take that.

Moving on to my main point. Democrats have been discriminating against Conservatives for some time now. Since Conservatives are Trumps base, he needs to go after these people with a VENGEANCE! Because like the video says, conservatives have been targeted by the previous administration, as well as by the tech companies for some time now. Alex Jones was essentially silenced and thrown off of social media. Even PayPal dropped him, so he can no longer accept money the way he always has. Where does this end? They claimed he was a Racist, yet they proved nothing. They just shut him down.

Corporate America is now discriminating against white people when hiring. They even admit to doing so! Religious Freedom is under attack by the left too.

Left wing lunatics are attacking people because they are Trump supporters. People are getting punched in the face, having their skulls bashed in with bike locks, getting fired from their jobs etc…. And nothing is being done about it. The guy who hit multiple people with a bike lock (which is felony assault with a deadly weapon) initially got charged with the crime, but it was later dropped!!! How do you justify dropping charges against a guy who assaulted multiple people using a deadly weapon??? Why has nobody been charged with finding out who is responsible for this??? Why is that person not in jail too???

These are the things Trump needs to address. And he needs to address them NOW!!!

Like Tucker Carlson says in the video, if any of this stuff would have happened to Obama supporters the FBI would have been in their house before they got home. Democrats are trying to keep Trump “back on his heels” by launching 1000 investigations into him.

Trump needs to take control of his own Justice Department and start countering their legal attacks on him with legal attacks on Democrats!!! You have Maxine Waters calling for violence against Trump and his staff……. That must be illegal! You have leftist lunatics attacking people for wearing a Trump hat….. I KNOW that’s illegal!

You have public companies discriminating against people for their political views, shadow banning and censoring conservatives on Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Not to mention those who have their accounts deleted or silenced for a period of time because the liberal owners of these companies don’t like what they are saying.

It’s time that Trump starts looking out for his base!!!

He needs to prosecute those in government who protect these thugs. And he needs to file lawsuits on every tech company out there. And anyone who attacks a Trump supporter out of the blue for wearing a hat or a t-shirt needs to be prosecuted for a hate crime!

It’s time that we stop the madness. Trump has been doing a pretty good job, and I’m not knocking the guy……… But it is past time he addresses these issues. Not only is it the right thing to do, but I feel he’d wrap up his re-election by doing so. Because voters care about THEIR RIGHTS, and right now Conservative voters’ right are being trampled on over and over again…. and without consequence.

That’s unacceptable. It’s time to regain some form of order in this country. Because one thing is for sure, it’s NOT going to get any better!!! It’s going to get worse and worse. The more these people are allowed to get away with the more they’ll try to get away with. Allowing violence without consequences against ANY American citizen is unacceptable.

But allowing violence against your supporters when you are the President??? That’s just crazy!!! I know he has had his plate full. I know Democrats have been badgering him with unsubstantiated investigations and lawsuits and personal attacks.

But it’s time for President Trump to reign them in. Direct the #DOJ to put an end to this, NOW!!!

Because otherwise….. Trump is giving anyone running against him in 2020 ammunition.

 

The LEFT’s beef with white people EXPLAINED

Border Crisis turned Invasion

The Border Crisis is all in our heads according to Democrats. But according to this man from the Border Patrol it’s getting VERY REAL VERY FAST!!!

Border Patrol Update

The Border Invasion is getting out of hand!

Not only is George Soros funding these “Caravans” of illegals heading into the United States, he is also getting US taxpayer money to help fund it!!!

So Americans are footing the bill to bring these Illegal #Immigrants to the United States, then we get to fund trying to deport them all!!!

Don’t you just love how Democrats and Congress spend our tax dollars???

Soros and Taxpayers funding Caravans of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States!

George Soros and United States taxpayers are actually funding the endless caravans heading to the US border!

It’s amazing to me that the people in Congress are so corrupt, so evil, and just so dishonest that they’d actually use taxpayer money to finance these caravans bringing illegal immigrants to the United States. The United States gives funds to the UN which in turn gives the money to George Soros who uses it to fund these caravans!

Then use the same taxpayers money to try to control the invasion!!! This is CRIMINAL and it’s time that Americans wake up to what’s really going on!!!

Censored Lou Dobbs footage

Censored Lou Dobbs footage of guest talking about taxpayers funding these caravans from InfoWars

It’s just amazing to me the criminality that we have in Congress and top to bottom in the Democratic Party! They are looking to collapse the American economy at all cost. Democrats have went over the edge completely. They are now openly calling for Socialism and every Democrat running for President supports the Green New Deal which would certainly be the death of America!

There is only 1 way for Americans to save this country at this point. We must send HAND WRITTEN letters to our State Representatives calling for them to support the Article 5 Convention of States.

Congress will NEVER reel themselves in!!! Only we can make this happen. The Founders KNEW the strong possibility that Congress could go out of control. That is why they put in the Constitution! The first part of Article 5 allows Congress to amend the Constitution, the second part of Article 5 is for the STATES to take control of an out of control Congress!!!

And that is what we have in America today! Please look into “Article 5 Convention of States” and don’t listen to those who talk about “how dangerous it is” because those are lies told by the people in Congress now!!!

It requires 34 states to amend the Constitution, so their claims of all the insanity which could come out of it is baseless. PLEASE listen to Mark Levin speak about it here:

Mark Levin Article 5 Convention of States

Mark Levin Article 5 Convention of States

Now PLEASE go and sign the petition calling for a Convention of States!!! The link is below. America needs YOU!!! Sign the petition and PLEASE SHARE!!!

Official Convention of States website petition

Official Convention of States website petition

The founders put section 2 of Article 5 into the Constitution for a reason! The reason has become very clear as we watch Congress, the Media, and Democrats spiral out of control If we don’t act now the criminals in Congress may amend the Constitution removing the States’ ability to amend it!!! It’s TIME to TAKE AMERICA BACK!!!

American Thinker|For the Record, Obama Made Mincemeat of the Constitution

For the Record, Obama Made Mincemeat of the Constitution

Good constitutional arguments can be made for and against President Trump’s evocation of emergency powers to address the crisis at our southern border.  But the notion that such a declaration would encourage a future Democratic president to do something similar borders on the comic.  Democrats don’t need encouragement.

Under President Barack Obama, the Constitution was violated more wantonly than a goat at a Taliban bachelor party, and the faithful cheered every violation.  In early 2014, New Yorker editor and Obama groupie David Remnick wrote about his experience accompanying Obama on a west-coast fundraising tour.

Obama confirmed to the audience that, yes, people did want him to sign more executive orders and “basically nullify Congress.”  At that point, wrote Remnick, “Many in the crowd applauded their approval.  Yes!  Nullify it!”  These were not wild-eyed tent-dwellers on Wall or some lesser street.  These were potential donors.

By 2014, Obama had successfully nullified any number of laws with negligible media objection.  In February 2011, for instance, Obama and “wing man” Attorney General Eric Holder came willy-nilly to the conclusion that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was not “constitutional.”  President Bill Clinton signed DOMA into law in 1996 with overwhelming support from Democrats in Congress and nearly unanimous support from Republicans.

No matter.  Going forward, Obama decided that the Justice Department would no longer enforce DOMA.  That simple.  Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley had a hard time making legal sense out of Obama’s left-field decision to ignore DOMA.  For one, Turley found the timing curious.  The Obama administration had been defending the law for the previous two years, and the president, publicly, at least, had not changed his personal stance on redefining marriage.

For another, Obama was basing this policy change on an interpretation “that had thus far remained unsupported by direct precedent.”  By refusing to enforce DOMA, Obama was setting a precedent and not a good one — namely, that a president could refuse to defend a law based on a legal interpretation that no court had ever accepted.

On the subject of illegal immigration, Obama did not bother deeming existing laws unconstitutional.  He chose not to enforce them because they did not poll well among Hispanic voters. It would get no deeper than that.

Since year one of the Bush administration, Congress had been trying to pass the awkwardly titled Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, better known as the DREAM Act.  In a nutshell, this bill would have provided permanent residency to those illegal aliens who had arrived in the United States as minors and behaved themselves well enough not to get their mug shots plastered on the Post Office wall.

Although President Bush supported immigration reform, as did President Obama, neither the DREAM Act nor any major immigration bill made it to their desks. The reason was simple enough: no variation of such a bill could muster adequate congressional support.

In his 2006 book, Audacity of Hope, Obama praised the system of checks and balances in that it “encouraged the very process of information gathering, analysis, and argument.”  Once Obama ascended to the presidency, all those checks and balances just made it harder for him to transform America.

Obama’s constituencies, especially labor and the Hispanic lobby, wanted action, not gathering and arguing.  They started leaning on him to ignore Congress and act unilaterally.  One minor obstacle stood in the way, and that was Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution.  For the previous 220 years, that article had informed Congress in some detail on how to turn an idea into a law.

Obama could not enforce the DREAM Act, said constitutional scholar Nicholas Rosenkrantz, “by pretending that it passed when it did not.”  As late as March 2011, legal scholar Obama seemed to agree.  “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law,” he told a Univision audience.  “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.”

By June 2012, what Obama said in March 2011 seemed as stale as a morning-after bowl of tortilla chips.  The president had lost his taste for all that legislative analysis and argument, given that the result was “an absence of any immigration action from Congress.”

Five months before the presidential election, he knew that the media would give him a pass, and he hoped Latinos would give him their vote.  So he decided to dispense with debate and fix immigration policy by his own lights, confident he could make that policy “more fair, more efficient, and more just.”

This fix started with presidentially guaranteed relief from deportation for the so-called “Dreamers.”  On top of that came the right to apply for work authorization, both guarantees in full defiance of existing federal law.  “There has long been a general consensus that a president cannot refuse to enforce a law that is considered constitutionally sound,” said Jonathan Turley.  That chapter was apparently missing from Obama’s law books.

On August 23, 2013, in a move that the major media barely noticed, the Obama administration subtly expanded the list of those who would be excluded from deportation.  Deep in a nine-page memo from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters to its field offices was an order that “prosecutorial discretion” be shown to parents or guardians of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents, AKA “Dreamers.”

The news scarcely troubled the media, let alone the citizenry, but at least a few Republicans noticed.  “President Obama has once again abused his authority and unilaterally refused to enforce our current immigration laws,” said House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte.  Jonathan Turley agreed.  “In ordering this blanket exception,” said Turley, “President Obama was nullifying part of a law that he simply disagreed with.  There is no claim of unconstitutionality.”  Said Rosenkrantz, “Exempting as many as 1.76 million people from the immigration laws goes far beyond any traditional conception of prosecutorial discretion.”

Encouraged by the media to keep drafting laws of his own choosing, Obama made nullification a central part of his governing philosophy.  “I’m eager to work with all of you,” he said to Congress of the 2014 State of the Union speech.  “But America does not stand still — and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”

Said veteran civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, “Obama is a bad man in terms of the Constitution.”

Good constitutional arguments can be made for and against President Trump’s evocation of emergency powers to address the crisis at our southern border.  But the notion that such a declaration would encourage a future Democratic president to do something similar borders on the comic.  Democrats don’t need encouragement.

Under President Barack Obama, the Constitution was violated more wantonly than a goat at a Taliban bachelor party, and the faithful cheered every violation.  In early 2014, New Yorker editor and Obama groupie David Remnick wrote about his experience accompanying Obama on a west-coast fundraising tour.

At one stop, when Obama walked out on stage, “It happened again: another heckler broke into Obama’s speech.  A man in the balcony repeatedly shouted out, ‘Executive order!’ demanding that the President bypass Congress with more unilateral actions.”

Obama confirmed to the audience that, yes, people did want him to sign more executive orders and “basically nullify Congress.”  At that point, wrote Remnick, “Many in the crowd applauded their approval.  Yes!  Nullify it!”  These were not wild-eyed tent-dwellers on Wall or some lesser street.  These were potential donors.

By June 2012, what Obama said in March 2011 seemed as stale as a morning-after bowl of tortilla chips.  The president had lost his taste for all that legislative analysis and argument, given that the result was “an absence of any immigration action from Congress.”

Five months before the presidential election, he knew that the media would give him a pass, and he hoped Latinos would give him their vote.  So he decided to dispense with debate and fix immigration policy by his own lights, confident he could make that policy “more fair, more efficient, and more just.”

This fix started with presidentially guaranteed relief from deportation for the so-called “Dreamers.”  On top of that came the right to apply for work authorization, both guarantees in full defiance of existing federal law.  “There has long been a general consensus that a president cannot refuse to enforce a law that is considered constitutionally sound,” said Jonathan Turley.  That chapter was apparently missing from Obama’s law books.

On August 23, 2013, in a move that the major media barely noticed, the Obama administration subtly expanded the list of those who would be excluded from deportation.  Deep in a nine-page memo from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters to its field offices was an order that “prosecutorial discretion” be shown to parents or guardians of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents, AKA “Dreamers.”

The news scarcely troubled the media, let alone the citizenry, but at least a few Republicans noticed.  “President Obama has once again abused his authority and unilaterally refused to enforce our current immigration laws,” said House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte.  Jonathan Turley agreed.  “In ordering this blanket exception,” said Turley, “President Obama was nullifying part of a law that he simply disagreed with.  There is no claim of unconstitutionality.”  Said Rosenkrantz, “Exempting as many as 1.76 million people from the immigration laws goes far beyond any traditional conception of prosecutorial discretion.”

Encouraged by the media to keep drafting laws of his own choosing, Obama made nullification a central part of his governing philosophy.  “I’m eager to work with all of you,” he said to Congress of the 2014 State of the Union speech.  “But America does not stand still — and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”

Said veteran civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, “Obama is a bad man in terms of the Constitution.”
