Section 4; The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5; The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Pretty obvious this was designed so the the USA would not have to pay the huge loans the south owed to the British, and that congress has the power to enforce this by legislation.
It is not some catch all that gives a president authority to borrow as much as he pleases without the approval by congress.
Freakin’ tin horn dictator.

As to guns, last year, Obama gave billions to the moslem brotherhood in Egypt, including F-16s, M-1 tanks, and is working on getting them a few German attack subs.

Obama has attacked Christianity in every way he can.
He has filled the military with homos.
He has homos marrying in the national cathedral and at West Point in the Chapel.
He has decided he is fine with legalizing pot.
He committed obvious electorial fraud in several states.
He has allowed his justice department to ignore subpeonas from congress.
He has allowed his state dept to ignore subpeonas from congress.
He was caught on a live microphone promising the Russians that after the election he could do what they wanted.

He rules as a dictator, rapidly moving to consolidate a socialist revolution. And now he wants my guns?

FUBO

Section 5 of tbe 14th amendment reserves the Constitionanal right of the spending stricltly to to the Congress.

The President is not given supra authority to spend a dime.

Interesting how Robert thinks that if the President plays hardball and wins some kind of 2nd Amendment “concession” out of the Republicans, that gun owners still won’t be incensed and tell all of Capital Hill to kiss their collective behinds. Does he honestly think that just because the RINOs sign on, we’ll all follow like meek little sheep?

Next he will find a way to dissolve congress. Think it’s a coincidence that his comrades chose to run a constitutional lawyer on the ticket?

(It’s doubtful any federal court, including the Supremes, would enjoin a President from protecting the full faith and credit of the United States).

I don't believe that clause gives the executive branch carte blanche.

Question: are these people complete idiots, or are they merely pretending default is a possibility to scare the sheep?

Answer: Yes.
