On Wednesday Barack Obama used children as props in order to attempt to pull on the heartstrings of the public, snookering them into supporting his proposals for gun bans and a national database of all gun owners. Supposedly the message in the photo-op is that no matter how egregious the attack on the rights of the people, as long as it is done “for the children” any act of government tyranny is justified.
Regarding Obama’s disgraceful use of children in a debate about guns, it is to be noted that notorious dictators such as Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, and Fidel Castro all used children as props. And each first registered all gun owners prior to a systematic program of gun confiscation, leading to the Holocaust that killed 7 million Jews and 5 million political dissidents, and to the scourge Stalin conducted in the Soviet Union that resulted in the murders of 27 million Russians. Chairman Mao’s rampage in China after his Communist takeover of the country resulted in the cold blooded murders of upwards of 60 million Chinese.
Progressives have often denounced comparing Obama to Hitler and Stalin. But the comparisons are stark and obvious, not only in his use of children as propaganda tools but attempting to make law by executive order.
Executive orders were originally intended to enable presidents to issue directives within the executive branch of government alone. The president, according to the Constitution, is the chief officer of the executive branch and thus is empowered to set policy and issue directives regarding the various agencies of the executive branch.
Executive orders have no authority outside the executive branch of government. Thus, any directive issued by Obama in the form of executive orders that are aimed at creating law in areas Congress refused to do so, or to order citizens to engage in certain activity, such as the horrendous executive order issued Wednesday to make doctors, in essence, spies for the federal government with regard to guns in the homes of their patients.
