Terrorism Expert Just Confirmed Our Worst Fears About Barack H. Obama

Conservative Tribune

After almost six years of his presidency, it’s clear that Barack Obama does what he wants to do with little regard for Congress, the Constitution, or even the law.

The president has openly defied the Republican House and dared them to do anything about it. He has skirted the Constitution so often that even liberal commentators are beginning to wake up to the danger his imperial presidency poses. He’s even prepared to bypass the Senate–which is controlled by Democrats of his own party.

And, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office, he violated federal law when he failed to notify Congress of his trade of five Taliban terrorists for the accused Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

The GAO says that the administration also broke the law by using funds it did not have to pay for the trade,

Now Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch says the reason for this president’s disregard for the law and Constitution is clear. President Obama will do “everything he needs to do to give the jihadis what they want,” he says.

The nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), confirmed this week that the president broke a “clear and unambiguous” law when he swapped the high-level terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl, an Army sergeant who went AWOL in Afghanistan in 2009. According to rules issued by the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the violation is serious and can carry severe consequences. They include fines, imprisonment, administrative discipline, suspension from duty without pay or removal from office, the rules specifically state.

Barack Obama Teams Up With the UN to Bypass Congress and the Constitution

Conservative Tribune

President Obama doesn’t seem to see either Congress or the United States Constitution, which he swore to protect and defend, as more than minor inconveniences.

For example, he has specifically instructed his cabinet to look for ways to get around Congress, especially the Republican-controlled House. His executive orders have been widely labeled as unconstitutional, even by liberal experts and commentators. Additionally, he seems to feel the same way about the Supreme Court, even though he appointed two of its justices.

Now a new report confirms that Obama is prepared to illustrate his disregard for America’s institutions once again, this time to force the country into a climate change treaty that the American people do not want and would not support, if given a voice.

Pentagon Warns Of Islamic State Obama Once Downplayed

Investors.com

Islamic State: A campaigning president assured us that al-Qaida was in retreat and its Syrian spin-off was just “JV.” Now the Pentagon admits that this al-Qaida spawn is worse. The U.S. never had to allow this situation.

To get an idea of why this White House has placed America in what Senate Armed Services Committee ranking Republican James Inhofe of Oklahoma calls “the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation,” we turn to one of Obama’s biggest mainstream media devotees.

Hagel Admits Obama Ignored Law in Taliban Release

Washington Free Beacon

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel admitted that “the trust has been broken” between the White House and Congress following the Obama administration’s decision to skirt U.S. law and release five top Taliban leaders without first consulting with lawmakers.

Hagel admitted to lawmakers on the House Armed Services Committee Wednesday that the administration unilaterally inked a deal with the Taliban to release five top prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp without first notifying Congress, as is legally mandated.

The deal was signed “without providing 30 days notice to Congress,” as is required by law, Hagel told lawmakers before attempting to justify the administration’s decision to ignore this law.

The White House’s decision to skirt this law has prompted the House Armed Services Committee to launch a full investigation into the matter, lawmakers revealed on Wednesday.

Judge Blows Cover on Fast and Furious Scandal… All Could Be Exposed

Conservative Tribune

The number of domestic scandals plaguing the Obama administration may have taken a back seat in the media–for the moment–but House Republicans and other investigators are slowly uncovering the truth.

Barack Obama, Eric Holder

Representative Trey Gowdy’s House investigation into the Benghazi attacks and their aftermath is scheduled to continue soon with public hearings. Experts predict the current lull in illegal immigration will soon abate, and be replaced with new and larger influxes of Central Americans once the peak heat of the summer months begins to dissipate, making crossing the desert less dangerous. Obamacare is losing so many enrollees that the program may not be able to sustain itself for much longer.

Now another scandal that hasn’t gotten a lot of press lately threatens to make Obama’s summer vacation even worse.

According to Fox News, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Eric Holder’s Justice Department to provide the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with “a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle” over the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.

The DOJ has until October 1 to produce the information.

Obama has invoked executive privilege to keep the documents confidential, but the judge, an Obama appointee, has ordered that congressional investigators be given at least a list of the documents being withheld.

House Republicans hope that the documents will help explain why the Justice Department “took nearly a year to admit that federal agents had engaged in” the controversial gun-walking operation.

Certainly, all presidents should be allowed to keep secrets–to protect taxpayer privacy, ensure national security, and allow advisers to provide counsel free from concern of public accusations about what is often only a deliberative process, not a decision.

However, for a president who often claims to run the most transparent administration in history, President Obama hides an awful lot from the American people. It’s time for him and his attorney general to come clean.
