Putting aside, for the moment, the fact that the Emperor at 1600 has no clothes and is almost certainly since Day One an illegitimate, non-natural born citizen usurper of the office of the presidency – an issue exhaustively discussed in the past here at The P&E, but largely ignored by a somnambulant, but implacably sycophantic media as well as an insouciant Supreme Court – the regime he now commands has turned more and more away from protecting the citizens of this country and, instead, toward directly exposing them to the very perils the oath of office he took seeks to prevent.
For those in need of a short refresher course, Art. 2, Sec. 1, Cl. 8 of the Constitution mandates that a person elected to the office of the president take this oath of office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Art. 2, Sec. 3 of the same Constitution mandates that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed….” When the Founders said “shall,” they did not mean “shall not.”
Instead of “taking care” that the laws are observed, the Emperor has instead (a) presided over the felonious distribution of weapons to Mexican drug cartel criminals, resulting in the deaths of Americans, including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry; (b) presided over the unconstitutional imposition of a health care monstrosity nationalizing one-sixth of the economy; (c) presided over stand-down orders leading to the murders of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and Americans assigned to serve and protect him, including Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty; (d) presided over the arrogation of congressional power to provide for the deportation of illegal aliens who, after being once deported (a misdemeanor), upon thereafter returning to the United States, are guilty of a felony for each return beyond the first one; and (e) most recently, presided over a refusal to impose a travel ban on people coming here from Ebola-infested West African countries while even streamlining and relaxing the visa processes for persons from there seeking to stay here, even if illegally.
That last one regarding Ebola takes the cake. What, pray tell, is wrong with this picture? What could possibly go wrong? The Emperor’s man in charge at the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Thomas Frieden, claims that a travel ban would only make things worse. If that is true, why do Ebola non-infected nations of Africa – including Kenya – thank the countries bordering Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia for closing their borders to contain the spread? Quarantines work, but only if implemented.
