King Obama has spoken. “Let all those in the far reaches of the land obey the one true king and pay him tribute!”
Yesterday, Obama told a town hall meeting that in directing amnesty to be given to five million illegal immigrants in the United States, he had “expanded his authority.” MRCTV reports on the town hall meeting and Obama’s comments:
What we’ve done is we’ve expanded my authorities under executive action and prosecutorial discretion as far as we can legally under the existing statute, the existing law. And so now the question is, how can we get a law passed.
Obama is not even worried about Congressional or Judicial action in response to his illegal actions. It remains to be seen as to whether he will be able to destroy the Constitutional protections our Founding Fathers put in place to prevent this exact type of overreach by one branch of government. You would not even think that the Republicans had just won a landslide of an election in protest against Obama’s lawlessness and weakness in national security matters.
Again, MRCTV quotes Obama:
“So we’re going to have to keep on with the political process on a separate track. But in the meantime, we’re going to do everything that we can to make sure that we implement executive actions as we’ve discussed.”
In addition to these “shortcuts,” the immigration law must be changed, as well, Obama said:
“There are only so many shortcuts. Ultimately, we have to change the law. And people have to remain focused on that.”
I will be watching very closely the decision on the White House’s request for a stay against the stay issued by Judge Hanen. The action in Congress to withhold funding to implement the policy is also happening concurrently. We also have the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare coming this summer.

I hope the other two branches of government have the guts to stand up to this would-be-dictator!
