President Obama is not our king

April 3, 2014 | 12:12 pm

President Obama swore an oath to obey the U.S. Constitution to faithfully execute the laws of the land. He is not to ignore laws he doesn’t like and implement law not passed that he prefers.

In 2010, the Obama Administration sued the State of Arizona for enforcing federal law in regard to illegal immigration. The Obama Administration is ignoring existing federal law while creating rules based on laws that were never passed, to allow illegal immigrant to stay in the country.

In 2010, the Senate rejected the Cap and Trade Bill that would have created a massive federal carbon regulation system, costing millions of American jobs, and make us uncompetitive in the global economy. Despite the rejection, Obama’s EPA went ahead and announced that it would treat carbon dioxide as a pollutant and punish businesses that emit it. The Constitution does not permit the president to write and enact laws without the approval of Congress.

Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution says that only Congress can declare war. Obama ordered our armed forces, without permission from Congress, to attack the Libya air defenses with hundreds of missiles and to support air raids on Libya for several months.

The 15th Amendment of the Constitution states that the right of U.S. citizens to vote shall not “be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race or color.” The Black Panther thugs were caught on tape intimidating white Philadelphia voters at a polling station in the 2008 election. The Obama Justice Department dismissed all police charges.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has said, “We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and we did not anoint a king that is above the law.”

Obama is not our king.
