Skip to comments.Trey Gowdy Believes Barack Obama Is Systematically Dismantling Our Nationís Laws
Posted on 04/15/2014 12:22:14 PM PDT by george76
Earlier this week, Sen. Jeff Sessions said that the president was deliberately dismantling our law enforcement system. Megyn Kelly of Fox News asked Rep. Gowdy about that.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, agrees with Sen. Sessions that the president is systematically dismantling the nations laws, but he believes it is to win elections not to pursue an agenda. They [the administration] do however fundamentally view their role differently, he added.
Attorney General Eric Holder recently claimed that illegal immigration is a civil right, if that is so, Gowdy says, that is like saying you and I have the right to vote in Madagascar.
Gowdy believes President Obama is dismantling our laws, not for anarchy, but for electoral success. The administration is motivated by the fact that they get away with it.
What about the drug laws. Hes [Eric Holder] trumping congressional statute with a memo,
Over 99% of the people here illegally did not face removal last year.
Deportation rates are close to zero. Thats the truth, he affirmed.
Sen. Sessions said that our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse. Its a deliberate plan by the President of the United States. Its wrong. People need to stand up to it. Americans need to be aware of it and I think the American people are beginning to do so.

“...Systematically Dismantling Our Nations Laws”
um....I don’t think he is the only one
When the laws are all broken why should we even pay taxes?
Oh, because that will be the ONLY laws they will enforce...
Power through Chicago politics.
The real oppression and liquidation of opposition will come later, towards the end of Hilliary’s 1st term.
Trey Gowdy, disappointment...
Warning to Obama: Women and minorities hardest hit.
Absolutely disagree. Obambi is driven by socialist/communist ideals. What we know of his history proves it. When will Sessions, Gowdy, Cruz, and others start calling Obambi for what he is? A god-damned communist. He grew up in the ideology, his own books state such, and everything he has done with his "Hope and Change" and Obamacare is proof. It's time to start calling a spade a spade. Yeah, I know, I'm a racist for using that metaphor. Sue me.
He and Sessions are the only two who have made this statement in public, thus I don’t think criticizing them for what is obvious but other congresscritters are silent on is the correct thing to do.
Well, he’s systematically dismantling the Constitution, that’s for sure. While simultaneously installing his own law.
Gowdy is correct to a point. 0bama is ignoring the law to win elections. The idea is to create the permanent one party state. It’s what all good communists do. The stupid GOP doesn’t realize they are playing the role of the Mensheviks and Social Revolutionaries
he is correct.
Why is that? He seems to be one of the few who has the instincts to understand what's wrong.
You said what I would have said even better. Gowdy, et.al., are such disappointments. Gowdy isn’t a stupid man, and he sure loves to rant and rave, but where’s the action??? No matter what he believes about Soeotoro’s ‘AGENDA’ or lack thereof, what is going on is wrong, unlawful, unconstitutional, a total breach of trust by a lying treasonous traitor. If you aren’t doing anything about it, Gowdy, then you are worthless, too.
He isn't the only one. Isn't that an impeachable offense? Maybe I should ask a constitutional professor. Or a community organizer.
Bundy in the NV cattle dispute should say to the BLM when the POTUS obeys laws written by Congress I will too.
Dems seem absolutely convinced that the GOP can never again win in a POTUS election year.
I agree with Jeff and Trey but I also think its to create chaos so he can touch off CWII and hopefully declare Martial Law.
This thing in Nevada is a test operation to see if they can send in the civilian national defense force (BLM and hired Mercs) along with a militarized local police force (not a duly elected county sheriff) and impose their will on someone.
I love Jeff Sessions and Trey Gowdy but I think they are going to be very surprised when the spark ignites and this whole thing goes viral.
No shite, Sherlock.
I am glad you like your Rep Gowdy. I am impressed by his righteous indignation, but Rome really is burning and we shouldn’t be talking about anything else except how to stop Nero and the Gang, AND THEN DO IT. My Rep is the infamous Justin Amash, who doesn’t bring home the bacon, and doesn’t vote for anything he believes is unconstitutional. But, he isn’t doing anything either to stop this Train from going over the cliff. I don’t need any more politicians, even ones I like (which Gowdy is one) telling me that there is a big problem out there and no apparent strategy to deal with it. Am I missing something that addresses the Action Plan?
“Gowdy believes President Obama is dismantling our laws, not for anarchy, but for electoral success”
I believe Obama and his cronies are trying to create anarchy so they can declare martial law and take over. I think Jeff Sessions and Trey Gowdy are not quite there yet.
I sure wish Sylvia Browne was still alive to tell us how all of this will end for Obama & Holder.
“but I also think its to create chaos so he can touch off CWII and hopefully declare Martial Law.”
You are exactly right.
During Bill Clinton’s impeachment, Hillary had a plan referred to as the “Scorched Earth Policy”.
The premise is from Bill Ayers book “Prairie Fire”.
Find an incident, a spark to ignite the flame, ratchet it up to a raging inferno.
That was a plan to find or orchestrate another R King type incident, call for and release the content of FBI files on police abuse and corruption, orchestrate massive race riots in every city, collapse the legal system and overthrow the govt.
In 2009 there was another attempt to do the same thing with the Gates and racial profiling by police BS.
The CBC immediately called for a review of complaints filed against police with the FBI.
That attempt was derailed by Rush when he very carefully let it be known Hillary was behind it and not Obama.
Hillary came back on Rush and he lost his NFL team.
The jug eared clown isn’t smart enough to scratch his butt without help, he isn’t doing this, this is from Hillary and her minions.
I disagree... there ain’t nothing “systematic” about it. Obama is basically engaged in flouting all laws he doesn’t like. I’d hate to play golf against this guy, and I’d never let him call his own fouls in a game of one-on-one.
I would love to see Trey Gowdy as Speaker of the House. It’ll take a bloodbath to get him there, but well worth it. Any time we stop believing that the Power of One doesn’t exist, we are in big trouble.
Where were these numbskulls 8 years ago? Hve we not been talikng about what was about to happen and it has? Common guys catch up to the wagon train, by the time you do the damage will have already been done and you guys are just as guilty
How can elections not be the agenda? Once they have placed the commies in congress in huge majorities the agenda is complete.
Unlike your own mischaracterizations. If he wants off my list he better quit crying with Gutierrez.
Welcome to the party, Trey!
OK, what legislation has he introduced or passed to address any of the issues he complains about on TV? He makes good points in some of the hearings and TV soundbites but no legislation.
I remember another firebrand House member that made great points even prosecuted President Clinton's impeachment, do you remember his name? He/she is now a Senator, beloved by freepers.
Michael Cannon in a House Judiciary committee hearing said:
That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate. If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws, then they will conclude that neither are they.
Cannon said it is very dangerous for the president to wantonly ignore the laws, to try to impose obligations upon people that the legislature did not approve.
Their friendship may offer the U.S. House its best chance to find agreement on how to secure the border, overhaul procedures for legal immigration and deal with the 11 million people in the country illegally.
> but he believes it is to win elections not to pursue an agenda.
Uh, what’s the point of winning elections if you don’t have an agenda? Even if that agenda is simply the enrichment of yourself and your ideological fellow travelers.
You DID launch into one of the widely-publicized mischaracterizations of Gowdy’s position statements regarding amnesty. (Dem talking points) The two Reps don’t appear overly friendly in that not-recent picture.
And the picture and link you provided do not support your accusation against me that I have been mischaracterizing Gowdy here on FR.
You may be right and I may be wrong about Gowdy but I think not. Let’s wait and see how your accusatory efforts against him on FR pan out.
Had you seen the video on C-SPAN you might think different. All I am saying is be cautious.
If Palin used his hairdresser there would be rebellion on FR. :)
If you look back at your original post you asserted that anyone that disagreed with your point, it would be a mischaracterization. I just used your statement back at you, no malice intended.
I’ll bet Trey Gowdy wishes he was in Congress so he could do something about it. Oh wait.....
You absolutely did, now you deny that you did.
If you watched the C-Span video that picture came from, what did you learn?
