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.
Family Security Matters
The United States has dire problems at home and perilous threats from abroad, all of which are solvable, but not with the politicians who are now wielding the power and the journalists who are controlling the national dialogue, few of whom serve the interests of the country or tell the American people the truth.
For Democrats, the only things Americans have in common are our differences. They attain and maintain power by practicing tribal politics, emphasizing and exploiting divisions based on race, ethnicity, gender and income. A united and healthy America is an anathema to the Democratic Party.
Democrats do not offer coherent policies to address national issues, but present a collection of simultaneous arguments embracing grievances and entitlements for which no solutions are ever sufficient and whose demands for redress become ever more extreme.
Democrats are progressive because, in order to preserve their voter base, they must move progressively further and further to the left, inventing new crises, creating greater resentment, telling bigger lies and applying more and more coercion in order to implement their increasingly radical agenda.
