Michael Turley, a Georgetown University Law Professor, issued this
warning… “The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the
president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the
constitutional system — he’s becoming the very danger the Constitution
was designed to avoid.”
Equally concerning is the fact that Congress isn’t stopping him
because his leftist sycophants in the Senate actually like what he’s
Our constitutional system of checks and balances is being subverted by
the Executive Branch to the point of being completely ineffectual.
Under President Barack Obama, the Executive Branch’s quest for power
at the expense of the other two Branches is accelerating. In fact, the
administration’s propensity to sidestep the Constitution is making
news nearly every day now.
Earlier this week, the House Judiciary Committee called in experts on
constitutional law to assess what they are seeing as a dangerous
trend. Enabled by the Democrat-controlled Senate, President Obama has
successfully tilted the balance of power decidedly toward the
Among the most telling of testimonies was that of Georgetown Law
Professor Jonathan Turley, who said that the Obama administration has
“an undeniable pattern of circumventing Congress in the creation of
new major standards, exceptions, or outright nullifications.”
Professor Turley added… “We have what many once called an imperial
presidency model of largely unchecked authority. And with that trend,
we also have the continued rise of a “fourth branch.”
We have agencies that are quite large that issue regulations. The
Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their
own or interpret their own jurisdictions.”
The “fourth branch” of American government.
In the next 12 months, President Obama will seek to fill 50 federal
judicial openings and over 180 federal agency leadership positions. He
will be stacking the courts and filling the federal agencies with
ideological clones — people who have come to be known as “Obamabots.”
This will, in turn, empower federal agencies to pass mandates without
congressional approval and to persecute opposing organizations and
individuals, much like we’ve already seen with the out-of-control IRS,
the NSA, the FBI, HHS, and an unbridled EPA.
In this chilling new scenario, circumventing Congress will be the norm
for the Obama administration and its ever-expanding federal agencies.
Then, if these agencies’ mandates are challenged in federal court, the
President will have already taken care of the judges’ political
orientations. Among the first federal courts that will be jerked hard
to the Left is the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of
Columbia, to which the President hopes to add three judicial activists
as early as next week. That court is charged with ruling on Executive
Orders and other administrative matters — no wonder President Obama
wants that court in his hip pocket!
As Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) said, “If we cannot go and get
the court to decide the differences between the two branches, then…
the imperial presidency is complete.”
Harry Reid’s use of the “nuclear option” is fueling this disaster.
With Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s “nuclear” gift to President
Obama, the possibility of derailing these dangerous nominations has
substantially diminished. The nuclear option removed the minority
party’s ability to filibuster, rendering Senate Republicans almost
helpless in trying to stop radical nominations.
We must do everything we can to help stop Barack Obama from stacking
the courts and flooding the federal agencies with his ideological
clones! Please take a moment right now and utilize the powerful LCA
Fax Barrage system to tell Harry Reid, your two Florida senators, and
other key members of the senior chamber that you oppose Reid’s
tyrannical actions — and the ramrodding of Obama’s leftist nominees
through the Senate: http://www.lcaction.cc/1675/
We must fully expose and STOP this tyrannical, subversive activity
before the Obama administration and their congressional supporters
succeed in remaking the United States of America into a socialist
