As recently as December 2014, the president lectured supporters that the Constitution didn’t allow it: “The notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
Then, a few months later, after Congress again refused to pass the law he wanted, he decided to see if he could get away with it anyway — issuing an order that not only suspended deportation for millions, but also gave them the right to work legally.
Thing is, he was only one high-court vote away from succeeding, because the liberal justices were willing to ignore the Constitution — as Obama himself understood it just two years before — to support liberal policy.
Should Hillary Clinton win in November, she’ll get to fill the Antonin Scalia seat on the court, and likely two more seats soon thereafter. The Supreme Court will no longer stand in the way of the Democratic agenda, even when Democrats lack the votes in Congress.
And she’s already promised to out-do Obama on executive actions. On immigration, Clinton said she’d “go as far as I can, even beyond President Obama.”
It won’t stop with immigration. Clinton & Co. want executive action on gun control, labor-union power, “environmental protection” and pretty much their whole wish list.
“If the FBI is watching you for suspected terrorist links,” Hillary Clinton said today in her supposedly apolitical speech, “you shouldn’t be able to just go buy a gun.”
If we’re going to do this, let’s be consistent.
If the FBI is conducting a criminal investigation of your suspected illegal use of a home email server to transmit classified intelligence, you shouldn’t be allowed to just go and run for president. Obviously. The idea that we would allow a person who can’t be trusted with our most vital secrets to hold the most powerful office in the nation is absurd. It’s just not safe.
We all know that Hillary Clinton was treasonously careless with our national security, and yet she won’t even receive a slap on the wrist. Not even a misdemeanor. What Hillary Clinton has gotten from abusing her position is rich. Filthy rich.
She has lied since the very first question arose. Everything she has said in her own defense has been a lie. The AP fact checked them, if you’d like your information from a mainstream source. They found all of the following to be lies, simply by using public records.
“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.”
“I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.”
“I responded right away and provided all my emails that could possibly be work related.”
“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for personal emails instead of two.”
Comey himself admitted that several of these statements were lies. And yet, somehow, the chief of the Federal Bureau of Investigation found that Clinton doesn’t deserve any kind of punishment – oh and that she’s still an awesome candidate for the highest office in the land.
The FBI had to rewrite the law in order to say that Clinton was not guilty. From Andrew McCarthy, a former assistant US Attorney:
And it’s not a two-way street: Conservative jurists aim to observe the letter of the law, not their ideology. That’s why GOP-appointed justices have slapped down Republican presidents from George W. Bush back to Nixon and Eisenhower, and why Chief Justice John Roberts saved ObamaCare.
If corrupt Hillary is elected, say goodbye to everything that America stands for. It will all be eliminated in pursuit of Globalism.
