Everything is now set up for a showdown between the incoming Republican lawmakers who will control Congress and our feckless liberal President. Yes, the same President who says he still ‘hears’ a mandate…from non-voters! Obama has not only not backed down from his extremist agenda, even after it was completely and forcefully repudiated by the electorate, he has doubled down on things like granting illegal executive amnesty.
We already saw perhaps an indication that Obama is not going to lessen or back down off his aggressive liberal agenda last week. The so-called climate change deal he made with China is a sad example of this; the US makes all the concessions and the Chinese have no responsibility beyond an ephemeral promise to do ‘something’ at ‘some’ point in the future.
Even Liberals Worried About Obama’s Abuse of Power
There is growing evidence now that even many liberals are growing concerned over Obama’s abuse of power. On Friday, a George Washington University Law School professor went on record during an episode of The Kelly File to say this move would be illegal and incredibly bad for the country. Professor Jonathan Turley describes himself as a liberal. He had previously issued such a warning while giving testimony before Congress. Take a look at the video:
Liberal Professor Warns Obama
He even warned Obama about ignoring the results of the midterm elections and going around Congress. According to Turley:
“It’s a very sad moment but it’s becoming a particularly dangerous moment if the president is going to go forward, particularly after this election to defy the will of Congress yet again. I can understand the frustration, these are two political parties that cannot get along but as you said, we have a Democratic process and a Congress that’s coming in with the full voice of the American people behind them, that’s what an election is, you may disagree with the outcome, but you have to respect the outcome…
What the president is suggesting is tearing at the very fabric of the Constitution. We have a separation of powers that gives us balance and that doesn’t protect the branches. It’s not there to protect the executive branch or the legislative branch, it’s there to protect liberty. It’s there to keep any branch from assuming so much control that they become a threat to liberty.”
Major Constitutional Issue Could Backfire on Obama, Democrats
A rare day when I actually find myself agreeing with a liberal law professor! Nevertheless, he is dead on about this. If Obama gets away with this, it is something that will come back to bite the Democrats as well. By creating a chief executive that basically can do whatever he (or she) wants, eventually that type of power will be in the hands of a Republican. Then, all these liberal idiots who were so happy to see Obama abuse his power, target conservatives, and engage in scandal after scandal will not be so happy.
This is a very serious Constitutional issue, one that we must not let Obama get away with. Hopefully, the GOP Congress will be able to find it within themselves to stand up and fight against all of this. But we will see. Again, the bottom line is who has more power and who will back down first.
What do YOU think? Agree or disagree with this liberal law professor? What should the GOP do to stop this from going into effect? What options do they have?
