Gone are the days in which we once cherished the delicate balance between government authority and individual liberty.
Our Constitution, that once connected one generation to the next by restraining the excess of the present, is being erased.
The terms and conditions for governing that once held the same meaning under our Constitution in the past no longer applies to the present as both political parties are unwilling to respect or even defend the Constitution.
The President of the United States faces no opposition from either elected party in Congress as he imposes his vision of transforming our Republic. By relinquishing their power to check the President, Congress has thus become an enabler of their end while their constituents are forced to subsidize their own demise.
The President, having a mind disposed to adaptation according to political expedients that serve the contemporary policy agenda of his choosing, is acting akin to Machiavelli’s Prince knowing that the few who dare oppose him have no voice in Congress to address their appeals.
In The Prince, Machiavelli writes “Everybody sees what you appear to be, few feel what you are, and those few will not dare to oppose themselves to the many, who have the majesty of the state to defend them; and in the actions of men, and especially of princes, from which there is no appeal, the end justifies the means“.
The chilling meaning of this, as explained by John Wheeler of the Western Free Press, is that if “a goal is ‘morally’ important enough , any method of achieving it is acceptable”.
When progressives like Obama say one thing then later, usually in the very next sentence, contradict what they previously said and conservatives sputter in disbelief, it becomes humorous.
Humorous in the notion that you actually believed what they said in the first place as if their expected to be held accountable for their statements.
“They don’t feel bound by what they said because it was just a means to an end and if the end changes or the means to that end changes, that’s just the way it is”, writes Wheeler.
Wheeler further explains that there is “no real ‘moral’ or ‘ethical’ quandary because the end is still the goal, so as long as that is achieved, how they achieve it is not relevant”.
As for Obama, morals, principles and ethics do not exist.
“The issue is never the issue”, writes David Horowitz of Front Page Mag, “the issue is always power – how to wring power out of the democratic process, how to turn the political process into an instrument of control, how to use that control to fundamentally transform the United States of America, which is exactly what Barack Obama has done”.
With the mindset of a prince, the President on Wednesday extolled the “morals” of his majesty while discussing opposition to his executive amnesty at an Immigration town hall meeting in Miami.
First, he issued a threat to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers if they dare disobey his orders to not deport illegal immigrants he is protecting via his executive actions on amnesty that Andrew Hansen, a Texas Federal Judge, blocked last week.
Judge Hansen held that Obama’s program of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) is “actually affirmative action rather than inaction” because the program grants “legal presence to individuals Congress has deemed deportable or removable, as well as the ability to obtain Social Security numbers, work authorization permits, and the ability to travel.”
The Judge further went on to state that the Department of Homeland Security cannot “enact a program whereby it not only ignores the dictates of Congress, but actively acts to thwart them.”
Yet, a week later, responding to a question asked by Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart regarding how the President will ensure his orders are followed, Obama stated “if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it”.
Obama then went on to dare Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.
“So in the short term, if Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do.”
Knowing Republicans will not vote because the majority side with Obama’s executive actions on amnesty, the President stood defiant as he threatened “consequences” against officials who obeyed the federal judges’ ruling and the law.
Spoken in true dictatorial fashion, Obama further claimed that “What we’ve done is we’ve expanded my authorities under executive action and prosecutorial discretion”.
In the name of progress, the President concluded to a room full of illegal immigrants that, “We dream about the future. That’s what brings immigrants here, we’re future-oriented, we’re not past-oriented.”
These are the words of a despot, a tyrant, a prince, who flaunts his own expansion of authority unbound by “past-oriented” concepts such as the separation of powers.
The President now believes that he can outright threaten Border Patrol agents for not following his dictates that cynically demand the agents to ignore everything but Obama’s decrees.
To say that the President has come unhinged though, is naive for that solely focuses on the means and neglects to take into account the end. Obama is in control, make no mistake about it, and while critics argue over his means, the President is achieving his end.
In this instance, with regards to immigration, Obama is flooding our nation with illegal aliens in order to take away the power of the American electorate.
Using the means of prosecutorial discretion, executive action, and Presidential memorandum, Obama is slowly reshaping American politics.
By giving Social Security Numbers, work permits, and tens of thousands of dollars in back tax benefits to those who are here illegally, the President re-affirms the Marxist notion “from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs”.
The end result of this will inevitably lead to socioeconomic class warfare within our country as American citizens are forced to literally subsidize their own demise in order to give illegal immigrants an opportunity at achieving their American Dream.
Today, as noted by Mark Levin, “America is no longer a Constitutional Republic or a Federal Republic” for “we live in an administrative state under a massive 4th branch of government that we have no influence on whatsoever”.
Obama isn’t just re-writing the Constitution, he is supplanting it by rejecting the very principles that led to its creation.
