A Totally Lawless President
Without getting into the moral issue of releasing five Taliban commanders in exchange for one American deserter (the partisan fog that politicizes everything in this country having already begun to obscure such issues), the simple fact is that any release of prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay facility requires 30-day notice and approval from Congress. It is the law, and The One simply ignored the law, as he usually does.
That's not supposed to happen in this country. It is against the law for Barack Obama to do what he did, but once again we run up against the fact that normal people have no way of compelling the federal government of the United States or any of its agencies, from Barry himself on down, to obey their own laws.
Well, yes, we do in fact have a way of dealing with a lawless president, two ways actually, both handed down to us by the Founding Fathers. One is impeachment and trial, and the other is the Second Amendment. But we lack the political courage to use the former and the physical courage to use the latter, so basically we are now living in a Third World dictatorship where El Supremo does whatever the hell he wants and his ruling party's flunkies operate completely without accountability. The Founding Fathers never counted on the degeneration of the White American male into Homer Simpson and Beavis and Butthead.
So Barry's doing it again, and he's going to get away with it. Nothing is going to be done about our wee little Third World dictator except a lot of bloviating on the internet, while 93 million Americans will not go to work today and everyone accepts this as "the new normal."
The remaining normal population of this country will pay a heavy and terrible price in the coming years for allowing Barack Obama to rule by imperial decree and skate on any consequences at all. Bear in mind that if Obama chooses to leave office in 2016, we're looking at eight or more years of the Sea Hag, who will use the precedents set by Obama to liquidate her opposition Soviet-style.
You think there were a lot of bodies dropping during the first eight years of Clinton rule? Bill at least had a little discretion when it came to political murder. What will it be like when the Sea Hag gets in, crazed with rage and a lust for vengeance after being forced to conceal her true nature for almost 70 years? And with the precedent of allowing liberal Democrat presidents to violate the law at will already established during the eight catastrophic Obama years?
