Whether committed directly or indirectly, by self or by subordinates, President Obama continues to mark tally after tally in the violations against the Constitution column. The authors and site owner of Downtrend.com are not Constitutional scholars, but legal sources and mainstream news media are considered reasonably reliable sources whose statements, opinions, rulings and interpretations are verifiable.
One of the most moving and important documents of U.S. history or speeches uttered by every person elected to the presidency of the United States is the Presidential Oath of Office. The relevant line it contains is the promise to…
“…uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Richard Nixon, William “Bill” Clinton and George W. Bush have extended in contemporary history the list of former presidents who left office under some degree of personal or political scandal. Let us now officially add the incumbent, Barrack Hussein Obama, for at least 10 times has his administration or he deliberately, knowingly and flagrantly disavowed his oath and betrayed the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and American citizens.
No matter what disambiguation, disassociation or distortions via comments, justifications or denials used, there can be and is no mistaking this sham of a “world leader” is lying through his teeth.
Executive Order 13636 Infrastructure Cybersecurity: Signed in February 2013. Obama did comment in 2009 that he did omit on a questionnaire in 2008 his college trip to Pakistan and in 2005 that he was concerned about “repeated” breaches into cyber areas thought secure and accessing information about passports; timing suggests that it was his passport information that may have been sought and changed in the government’s electronic records.
Yet on about August 8, 2013, and as relayed by techdirt.com, the New York Times ran yet another story of the National Security Agency’s oft-denied operation to scan emails from or to private citizens and American businesses that either enter or exit the United States. If we suspend skepticism of lack of domestic monitoring, that is.
Pardon, Mr. President, but let’s be clear: Your concerns pertain to citizens gaining access to damaging facts about your administration’s operations and not about the government’s actions, right?
We thought so. We’ll leave alone in this piece the ironic contradiction surrounding the government’s outrage of Ed Snowden’s release of “classified” information that embarrassed you while you continue to approve of no-evidence bombing and murder of U.S. citizens without benefit of proof.
We’ll leave alone the fact that this Executive Order completely bypasses the powers balance outlined in the Constitution. You know the one: It’s where legislative, judicial and executive branches do not, should not and cannot overlap in authorization. Yet you insist that POTUS can, does and must maintain the right [irony intended] to kill “just because.” No proof of active involvement, no right to trial and, goodness gracious, no right to face one’s accuser. Nope. Not that, above all.
This is only one example of Obama’s continuing campaign to undermine the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, a pair of the most important documents in the history of the world.
