CURL: Obama’s a domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution
Washington Times ^ | 6-18-12 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 06/18/2012 12:58:40 PM PDT by STARWISE

“Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation — 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.*

“* Unless, you know, 224 years from now, whoever happens to president simply decides he really doesn’t want to do that.”

— Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 of Barack Obama’s U.S. Constitution

The Founders set the course in a simple, concise, 35-word affirmation — the president’s top job is to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution. The chief executive does, of course, have other responsibilities, but his guardianship of the document they had just written was deemed by the Founders to be of such great import that they made him swear it — aloud, in front of witnesses.

In 1884, Congress, having no set oath of office, wrote its own: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same …”

Little did they know then that 128 years later, America would face just that: a domestic threat to the U.S.

From the very beginning, the president and his administration made clear they had no intention of enforcing laws they didn’t like. Mr. Obama and his minions decided that they would simply stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act, no longer prosecute growers of “medical” marijuana, and let some states walk away from provisions in the No Child Left Behind law ....

*snip*

Mr. Obama’s Justice Department has even more flagrantly flouted the laws of the land.

Obama should be impeached and tried for High Treason!

Yea, but isn’t the oath of office just a symbolic gesture?

I'd rather Obama left the WhiteHouse in handcuffs or with impeachment papers. Allowing him to leave free and clear using the ballot box as an exit strategy only validates his term and encourages more of the same in future elections.

Yes, beware of any excuse to cancel this election. In that case, the gloves are off.

And once the gloves come off, what then?

Will this be enough to get Patriots off their couches and into the streets? I have my doubts.

Just look at how many seemingly intelligent Americans (most of them natural-born, if I’m not mistaken) are actually praising Obummer’s illegal move. Everyone should be ripping, howling mad, but too many are quietly pleased.

I swore the same oath you did, exnavy (though mine had an Air Force flavor). When are we expected to uphold it? And how energetically?

Until I run out of ammo or run out of blood or both.

"if ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, than go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." I do believe Samuel Adams nailed it.

The founders mostly lost everything to give us our freedom, what would you do to give your grandchildren freedom?

What did anybody expect, when we elected a communist traitor mole to be POTUS?

We all should remember that we never saw him give the complete oath of office. It was done out of the public view with Justice Roberts

[[Obama should be impeached and tried for High Treason!]]

should be, but never will be because he is black and a ‘media darling’ who can do no wrong- even when he’s blatantly violating our constitutionally protected rights, and daring anyone to do anythign about it- his media protected arrogance knows no bbiounds bwecvause he knows he can do anythign he wants- legal or not, and the media will NEVER hold him accoutnable-

And hte legft msm is fond of sayign they are ‘fair and balanced’? BS !!!
