Obama Ignores the Constitution…And Two Branches of Government

Just another revealing thought our King, I mean President, let slip among his recent and repeated comments about ignoring Congress.  He’s going to “do it without them”.  “Them” being the two other branches of government outlined in our Constitution.  Neither does he respect the views of Congress, nor those of our “Supreme” Court.  Witness his treatment of the Justices during his State of the Union address.  To Obama, our Constitution is just an unfortunate inconvenience.  When two of the three branches of government get in the way he commands them to disappear…

“Where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.”

via Drudge, from Real Clear Politics

In an interview with a local news channel from Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Obama says if Congress is not willing to pass legislation he wants, he will do it himself in order to win another term.

Rob Quirk, KOAA-TV: “And one year from today we will know if this a one-term or two-term president. So, I asked the president what will it take from now until then to not only win Colorado again, but reelection as well.”

President Obama: “Well, what we’re going to have to do is continue to make progress on the economy over the next several months. And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves. But it would be nice if we could get a little bit of help from Capitol Hill.”

The “Charters of Freedom” were brilliantly designed by our Founding Fathers to keep tyranny in check and protect our country’s freedom.  Why would Obama want to ignore that?

    Breaking Free From The Constitution

    [The clip of Senator Obama posted on You Tube consists of a four minute portion of a show aired on Chicago Public Radio on January 18, 2001.

    Some commentary has been made that taking four minutes of an hour long show somehow unfairly characterizes Mr. Obama’s comments. The entire program includes a moderator and two other constitutional scholars, some public service announcements and calls from listeners. Mr. Obama’s actual speaking time on the program may have been eight minutes. Four minutes is about half his total time.]

    and much more..

    crickets.. 🙁

    His charter of authority is the communist manifesto, not our constitution.

  • regularguy

    Just remember his so-called educational background centers on constitutional law, so he damned well knows he’s violating it. Otherwise, refer to # 2 above.

  • Txn4Evr

    This empty suit thinks he’s King not president.

  • kansas

    Get us a Republican Senate and House and he does this, it’s impeachment and removal from office.

    And regarding his supposed education in constitutional law…………I don’t believe he has any.

  • Thomas

    The author needs to brush up on civics and what the three branches of government actually are.

  • Txn4Evr

    Sorry Kansas the Republican Party as it stands now doesn’t have the balls to impeach anybody.

    They chickened out on Bubba.

    The Rockefeller,Bush, Rove Republicans have no idea what Conservative means.

    Constitution of the United States

    re: #1 December 14, 2011 at 2:25 pm bg

    [Obama’s Views of the Warren Court

    The You Tube clip presents his personal views on the Warren Court of fifty years ago as a court that did not go far enough. He refers to a tragedy that the Warren Court ultimately found itself bound by the constraints placed upon it by the founding fathers. He seems to have found it unfortunate that the Supreme Court followed the Constitution. The Constitution has historically stood as a constraint upon government action as Mr. Obama said. He seems to lament that the court would not read into the Constitution a redistributive philosophy that he apparently holds.

    The full WBEZ program tracks the evolution of the 14th Amendment and its use to extend the Bill of Rights as a constraint upon state government and the banning of discrimination of by state action. Among the participants it is a fair representation of history and how the courts played a role in advancing liberty for all Americans.]

    re: Constitution of the United States

    [Breaking Free from the Constitution

    Mr. Obama’s comments take a turn from discussing the historical record. Unprovoked he laments that the Supreme Court “could not break free from the essential constraints placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.” He further describes the Constitution as “a charter of negative liberties.” This is at odds with the preamble to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    The Constitutional preamble describes the goal of securing the blessings of liberty for the Founders and posterity. The Bill of Rights outlines positive liberties: free speech, press, religion, jury trials, defense counsel, and more. The Miranda Warnings are grounded in the Constitution as positive rights.

    The extension of constitutional limitations on state government power that had previously existed on federal power by the 14th Amendment is a marvel at work daily in the criminal justice system. The Constitution protects all of us from the exercise of the awesome power of the government when it seeks to take away our liberty property and life.]

    re: Constitution of the United States

    [Oath to Uphold the Constitution

    Mr. Obama had been sworn in and took an oath upon his admission to practice law in Illinois in 1991. He was sworn in and took an oath as an Illinois State Senator in 1997. On each of those occasions he swore (or perhaps affirmed) to uphold the Constitution of the United States. A view that the Constitution is some constraint that the government should break free from appears at odds with the oaths he had taken twice before the interview

    The Court should maintain its historical role as protector of individual liberty. The notion (a favorite Obama term) that the Court should be a distributor of collectivist justice for groups is misplaced and has no basis in the Constitution.

    A view of the Constitution that involves the Supreme Court in essentially a kind of group social justice would remove the Court from its current role as our protector from government instrusion and change it to some kind of hopefully benevolent dictator.]

    Would somebody please tell us how this lawless president can do this?

    First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Well, yes, I spoke out often and with vitriole on internet blogs…complained like hell, believing that speaking out would actually accomplish something. Mostly it just made me feel better for venting.

    Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Well, I spoke out on internet blogs, even complaining that our Lawless One in Chief was a Communist who was destroying the country. However, my speaking out didn’t accomplish anything, but it sure made me feel better for being able to vent!

    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Well, actually, I did speak out. Even griped alot about stinking unionists like SEIU, et. al., telling the world that our Lawless One in Chief was working his destruction through unions and their thugs. My speaking out on all these blogs didn’t accomplish anything, however, but I sure felt better for being able to vent!

    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me. Oh well, maybe they will let me keep my computer so that I can continue complain and vent about our Lawless One in Chief. I probably won’t be able to post my complaints and rants to blogs like this one anymore, but I will feel better for venting!

    This populace is nothing more than a bunch of do-nothing complainers. No wonder we have no leaders. Look at the we have to pick from.

    See you all tomorrow….same Bat Channel, same Bat Time! I wonder what do-nothing complaining will be on the agenda?

    Ummm…The the three branches of government are not The President and Congress.

    Those would be the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.

    Where does Obama say he’s going to ignore the Courts?

    Where does it say he’s going to ignore anyone, and how does saying equate to DOING?
    When did he take away the power of the Executive and Judicial?

    This will fit in nicely with the HR 1867 that is about to pass and contains the new provision that the US military will have the right to capture and detain “suspected” terrorists (including US citizen on US soil) and or anyone who is belligerent toward the government for an indefinite time without a trial.

  • OTEC

    Seriously Jim, you actually thought the other two branches of government were the Senate and the House of Reps, didn’t you?

  • hermie

    This is the Obama/Reid strategy. Reid ties everything up in the Senate so of course the President ‘must act’ to ‘save the country’.

    Reid is sitting back and laughing at those fools in Nevada who wouldn’t come out and vote for Angle and prevent him from keeping his power.

  • Craig

    He did it since day one. He is not a Natural Born Citizen, so therefore, this Kenyan Muslim illegal alien is NOT your President. So why should he follow the Constitution? He is just another puppet to the Federal Reserve Globalist scums who hyjacked your country in 1913. All your Presidents were puppets. Only Ron Paul will not be one. He can’t be bought.

    It’s not HR1867, it’s S1867. It was created in the Senate, and passed 97-3 in the Senate.

    The Obama administration has said they would VETO S1867.

    He can do it, but if it’s not law, you do not have to abide by it.

    #28 OTEC…No SH*T…. I’ll bet you $100 Obama WILL NOT VETO IT. The thing that concered him was not the controversial verbage about detaining US citizens. It was section 1032 that he was concerned about and he will change it or pass it to fit with their master plan.

    @ OTEC I don’t see it written anywhere that the person who wrote this thinks there are only two branches of government or that the senate and house are separate branches. As far as the Judicial branch, Obama is always trying to do an end run around the Supreme Court, just like FDR. But unlike FDR you’re beloved president won’t get past being a one term loser.

  • This comes at no surprise………….he’s been by-passing congress and has shredded the constitution for last three years now…….dictators don’t have no need for laws or rules……just sayin

    Setting aside the knee-jerk constitutional questions, there is a very simple follow-up question that needed to be asked of Obama.

    WHY has he waited 3 years to implement these important items?

    Well clearly our Indonesian Muslim Marxist Metrosexual models himself after Il Deuce. He has no regard for the Constitution. He has no respect for the law. He is also a miserable posturing failure who has put more than two million people out of work and destroyed industry and industry.

    So what else would he do than act like some tinpot African caudillo. He is a loser for the wankers out there who have no education and live at the fringes of society. You can tell them by their feral rage andunerring sophmoric slogans and bumper sticker lies.

    Let us all resolve to eject this Orwellian man from the White House next year and then put him on trial.

    You Bidy demonstrates why progressives have to quote forign laws as part of the Constitution. Yup evertyone knows the President is emperor and the Constitution exists to support him, or to quote the First Troll, “look it up.”

    Yes You Biddy exactly where does it say that in the Constitution. What a dolt.
