What Have We Done?
By Tammy Derouin
Our country is lost. The citizens of the United States have been turning a blind eye to the destructive actions of our President. It’s beyond belief how so many Americans can support a president who shows nothing but disdain for our country. They follow blindly without checking his actions.
Our President has been undermining our principles and stripping us of our freedoms ever since he took the oath of office. Prior to being elected, he boldly stated what he intended to do. Nobody really thought he meant exactly what he said. It was all political verbiage. An American president wouldn’t willfully destroy our country, would he?
Will the act of treason move people? This past week President Obama waived a federal law to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist. Now the good old U.S.A. will be able to provide military assistance to “vetted” terrorist fighting in Syria or anywhere else I suppose. Some of these groups are radical Islamic terrorist who were responsible for the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States.
Our President is arming, aiding and abetting our enemy. This is treason! The Constitution clearly states, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” It also states, “No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act…” I think we have more than two witnesses.
On the eve of the September 11 anniversary, the President went on television and told the American people that we have to go to war. We have to fight with, and in support of Al-Qaeda. The arrogance of this President knows no bounds. Al-Qaeda attacked us. They want to destroy the United States. Our President wants to arm and fight with them, as an ally.
President Obama waived a law that was put in place due to the September 11 attack. By waiving the law he wouldn’t be breaking the law. We couldn’t have a president in violation of a law now could we? Eric Holder won’t prosecute him for continuously violating our Constitution. Why should he be concerned about breaking a little law? The fact that he waived the law is proof that he knows he’s arming terrorists, which is against the law or rather was against the law. The fact that he is giving aid and comfort to our enemy is treason.
The President is given the ability to waive this law but only if he, “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States.” On September 9, 2013 Obama said, “…But the notion that Mr. Assad could significantly threaten the United States is just not the case.” So what is the case? Why does the President want to partner with those who wish to destroy us? Al-Qaeda’s current leader wants to “…bleed America economically.” He also states, “…Americans, after all, are humans who can be defeated, felled and punished.” Why does our president want to partner with Al-Qaeda?
The President has shown nothing but contempt for our Constitution. He knows it limits his power. He’s studied it. He knows how to dismantle it. The founders knew what they were doing when they established a government with checks and balances. How many times have we heard the President state he will act on his own, that he won’t wait for Congress or he will go around Congress?
If the President is simply going to write the law, which isn’t his job according to the Constitution, why bother having a Congress? If the President is going to appoint people to rule in his favor and not prosecute him or those in his administration, why bother with the judicial branch? If the President isn’t going to be checked, why have an election? The president is slowly eliminating the need for the other two branches. Without the other two branches, we are no longer free. If we are no longer free, we have no need for a president. We have a dictator.
Our country is indeed lost. If we don’t recognize the facts and see them for what they are, we will never be able to find our way back to being the exceptional nation we once were.
The Revolutionary War was fought because one person, a king, imposed his will and disregarded the will of the people. The king could act as judge, jury and executioner. What have we done America, what have we done?
“We must watch and wait to seize any opportunity to direct a large strike on (America), even if that takes years of patience to do it.”
