Sen. Tom Coburn warns of violence after immigration order

Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn warns there could be not only a political firestorm but acts of civil disobedience and even violence in reaction to President Obama's executive order on immigration Thursday.

"The country's going to go nuts, because they're going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it's going to be a very serious situation," Coburn said on Capital Download. "You're going to see — hopefully not — but you could see instances of anarchy. ... You could see violence."

Coburn, 66, is a conservative Republican but one who has a personal relationship with Obama. They entered the Senate in the same class, elected in 2004, and the new senators from opposite ends of the political spectrum and their spouses immediately hit it off at an orientation dinner. Last year, the president wrote a tribute in Time magazine to Coburn as "someone who speaks his mind (and) sticks to his principles."

"I really like the guy," Coburn, 66, told USA TODAY's weekly video newsmaker series Wednesday. "I thought he's neat, and I think Michelle's a neat lady."

That history gives Coburn's stark assessment a special sting. On immigration, he accuses Obama of acting like "an autocratic leader that's going to disregard what the Constitution says and make law anyway." He says changes in immigration policy require passage by Congress, not just the president's signature — a charge the White House disputes and on which legal experts disagree.

"Instead of having the rule of law handling in our country today, now we're starting to have the rule of rulers, and that's the total antithesis of what this country was founded on," Coburn says. "Here's how people think: Well, if the law doesn't apply to the president ... then why should it apply to me?"

Just what the emp wants

Just what the emperor wants !

Divide and conguer by an invading army of illegals. The murder of the once great American middleclass. God help us.

God help us help ourselves.

I like the PIG affect !!!!!!!!!!! BHO really does not even like this country. He is doing every thing he can to destroy the USA !

I ain't scaart, are you?

Obama...wants to go down in history as the man who brought down the greatest country in the history of human government. He had no father, in reality, and no stable home life as a child.

He purposely brought on the recent "invasion" of foreigners flooding our southern borders and now will pack the  country with foreign human bodies - just for the sake of his own hate for whites and for America.

. That is exactly why he stumbled badly when reciting his oath of office when being sworn in. The Oath of faithful allegiance to the United States was too much for his well formed psyche..which had no doubt rehearsed ways and methods of attacking and stabbing the US of A in its heart which had now been laid bare to him.. when given the banner of acceptance and trust,.

He is a traitor to himself; to both the black and white races and to his country and his oath of office. He deserves the sentence given to all traitors and will receive that sentence one day..

YES THIS IS WHAT HE WANTS TO BE REMEMBERED FOR SO WE MUST BE REMEMBERED AS THE ONES WHO STOPPED IT 

Right! Revolution is coming SOON!

We will finally SHUT this FRAUD DOWN!

Don't forget the liberals democrats. They need to hang with him.

Obama is doing exactly what he said he would doe.  Essentially he set out to weaken this country internationally, and turn it into a socialist society internally.  Where has he failed?  He has succeeded with the help of the stupid 51% of us.

It is time to overthrow this administration. The military has the authority to take this action as president is a domestic terrorist.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
