We Americans generally take enormous pride in the perceived wisdom of the Founding Fathers in establishing our great nation and the US Constitution. Many believe that the Founders were inspired by Providence and that the Constitution reflects spiritual values sanctioned by Deity.
However wise or inspired we may think the Founders to have been, the presidency of Barack Obama has exposed a glaring flaw in our procedures for dealing with a determined tyrant who has nothing but contempt for the Founders and all aspects of American culture and heritage.
How else to characterize an inexperienced community organizer who naively and arrogantly came into office vowing to “fundamentally transform” the nation that has provided the greatest liberty and economic opportunity in human history?
How else to understand an inexperienced rebel-rouser who, upon taking office, traveled to foreign lands, some openly hostile to our government and way of life, in order to lay blame at the feet of America for many of the world’s woes, and to deny the faith of hundreds of millions of Christians living in America?
The failings of Barack Obama have grown progressively worse over the years, reaching the point where now he seems to relish the idea of acting unilaterally against the wishes of both the US Congress and the American people in crucial areas such as immigration and homeland security.
As a reminder, President Obama is obligated to serve as president in accordance with the following sworn oath he took on the occasion of his inauguration in 2009 and again in 2013:
“I do solemnly swear 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.”
It is impossible for any thinking American patriot to believe that President Obama has even remotely lived up to that oath.
In one of his most despicable, anti-American acts, President Obama approved the release of five Taliban terrorist commanders from GITMO in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, an American solider, now formally charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
Such action by a president is obviously unprecedented in history. Clearly, Obama’s Bergdahl crime is beyond anything that the Founders could have imagined.
The Founders would find it inconceivable that any person so lacking in integrity and patriotism (as Obama) would ascend to the presidency. Of course, they could not have envisioned the wanton “stupidity” of the American people who make up the electorate in the 21st Century.
Nor could the Founders conceive that one of the major political parties would abandon love of country for love of power in supporting a renegade president. Of course, they would find it inexplicable that the Democrat Party is complicit in the Obama destruction of America, and that the opposition (Republican) Party is a gaggle of gutless, mindless weasels who cower in fear at the very mention of the tyrant despite owing majorities in both chambers of Congress!
The Founders would have expected the Fourth Estate, a free and fiercely independent press, to function as an effective safeguard against tyranny and political abuse.
Of course, they would have no way of knowing that CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and papers like the New York Times would abandon objectivity in order to actually protect the tyrants!
In sum, because of anti-American ideology, deep-rooted resentment, and emotional immaturity, Barack Obama is incapable of living up to the presidential oath of office.
Tragically, it appears as though our Founders, wise and well-meaning though they were, failed to build institutional safeguards sufficient to protect against an anti-American, tyrannical president, an uniformed and stupid electorate, a corrupt and complicit party to which the tyrant is a member, a weak, uninspired, gutless opposition, and a media devoted to preserving the rule of tyrant, all acting in concert to destroy the greatest nation of earth.
Although it seems impossible, America must find the will and the way to stop Barack Obama– particularly as concerns his nefarious scheme to destroy Israel by boosting Iran to a nuclear weapon state!
