Obama: The Putz Who PRETENDED He Was King
When Obama returns to the media, usually from vacationing with rich white people, he quickly reminds us as to why we detested him. What a fraud.
As the old country song goes, “I woulda wrote you a letter, but I couldn’t spell yuck!”
Remember when Obama said this?
“I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with [the president] trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.”
Obama lied like this on many occasions.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
With respect to immigration, he made this declaration at least 20 times. Then, he issued an executive order in direct contradiction of this statement.
In the scheme of things–and scheming is what Democrats do best–Obama knew exactly what he was doing. He knew his EO was illegal, unconstitutional, and went against American citizens. Check, check, and CHECKMATE!
The point of DACA ignored legality. What Obama wanted was for Republicans to own the undoing of his unjust EO. Democrats love tying Republicans hands when it comes to emotional issues like “children”.
The government implemented DACA without approval of Congress, in direct conflict with the Constitution. And let’s not forget who pays for DACA; the American people.
Moreover, DACA encouraged ILLEGALs to continue to break our immigration laws, as it protected children from deportation, ergo it protected their criminal parents. These “dreamers” were given social security cards, work permits, and funding at the taxpayers’ expense.
TBS wrote this about DACA recently:
Under Obama, On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. Obama felt that by allowing children into the United States eventually bringing their parents would be a foregone conclusion. He limited the program to two years in order to not over-step his authority, which DACA most certainly does.
Along with allowing “children” to enter the United States under special circumstances, DACA also allowed these “children” to work.
All “Dreamers” as the children of illegals are called were essentially given a reprieve. The government thereby deferred action against them, using prosecutorial discretion. Although deferred action does not provide lawful status it certainly greases the skids to permanent residency, and ultimately citizenship.
Obama never counted on a Trump presidency, when The King implemented DACA. He figured DACA would remain the law of the land under Clinton, who by the way agreed with Trump .
But just in case, DACA was setup as a dare to Republicans. President Trump took the dare.
Shrewdly, Trump now fights DACA on two fronts:
First, DACA violates the Constitution. Leftists can argue all they want, but Congress sets national immigration laws. But Trump’s second method of fighting DACA is even more intriguing.
Recently the president mentioned the “real” Dreamers. Then, he discussed the black community, accusing Leftists of stealing the dreams from many young Americans, especially blacks. Could Obama has opened up a real can of worms for Democrats?
Ironically, the president of Planned Parenthood is quoted of saying about DACA, “everybody deserves a chance at life.”. The woman whose organization kills more blacks than disease, guns, and smoking combined fights for Mexican children? Let’s see how that plays should President Trump decide to roll with it.
Regardless, the “would be King” threatened President Trump should Trump reverse DACA. And yet again, Trump accepted the challenge.
Here are a few quotes from Obama on how he “isn’t a King” and can’t create laws himself.
“We’ve got a government designed by the Founders so that there’d be checks and balances. You don’t want a president who’s too powerful or a Congress that’s too powerful or a court that’s too powerful. Everybody’s got their own role. Congress’s job is to pass legislation. The president can veto it or he can sign it. (5/19/08)
“America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the President, am obligated to enforce the law. I don’t have a choice about that. That’s part of my job. But I can advocate for changes in the law so that we have a country that is both respectful of the law but also continues to be a great nation of immigrants. … With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…” (3/28/11)
“I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the Executive Branch to make it happen. (10/25/10)
“I’m not a king. I am the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law. And that’s what we’ve done. But what I’ve also said is, let’s make sure that we’re applying the law in a way that takes into account people’s humanity. That’s the reason that we moved forward on deferred action.” (1/30/13)
“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.” (2/14/13)
“I am the Champion-in-Chief of comprehensive immigration reform. But what I’ve said in the past remains true, which is until Congress passes a new law, then I am constrained in terms of what I am able to do.” (3/6/14)

It is clear that Obama should have listened to Obama.
But then why take advice from a fool.
