As of this date, Obama has signed 160 executive orders into law. One of them grants him total control over the country’s communication network, in the ‘event of a crisis'; a dangerous precedent that will be met with swift action by We the People, if he ever tries.
There is no explicit constitutional basis for executive orders. The term “executive power” given in Article II, Section 1 states:
“The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows.”
Further instruction is given Article II, Section 3, Clause 5:
“He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”
These articles are used as reasoning for authorization of ‘executive orders’ as part of the President’s sworn duties.
Which brings us to King Barack Hussein, who acts more like George III instead of an American president.
One of the 23 royal edicts he imposed in the name of ‘gun control’ suggests that your ObamaCare-mandated doctor should pry into your ‘mental health’ by asking if you own any firearms.
Janet ‘Big Sis’ Napolitano is set to help Obama “expand and formalize coordination of ongoing efforts intended to prevent future mass casualty shootings”. Uh huh. Considering all she’s done to ‘expand and formalize’ her craptastic jack-booted security measures, this ought to be good.
Americans are not too pleased with His Highness’ flagrant misuse of office. Thousands of people held gun rights rallies across the U.S. yesterday.
Like the Tea Party protests, gun owners will take to the streets and show up enmasse at state capitols and the U.S. capitol in D.C. to remind the federal government about a particular item in the Constitution:
Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
