Over the last few months, liberals all over the country have been pushing to enact more gun control legislation, but they’ve met with precious few victories. The biggest blow came in the legislature shortly after the horrible shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. If the legislature could not pass stricter gun control legislation with a majority in the Senate, a sitting President and on the heels of a major national catastrophe… it was never going to happen. This would have been true under just about any other Presidential administration in our history, but not under his imperial disaster, President Barack Obama.
President Obama has become the one-man wrecking crew when it comes to our constitutionally guaranteed rights, and our 2nd Amendment gun rights have not been spared his monstrous gaze. While the legislature, the Supreme Court, and the American public have all been standing up to defend our 2nd Amendment, the President has been conniving to destroy those rights all by his lonesome. The sad truth is that he may succeed. “Even without Congress, my administration will keep doing everything it can to protect more of our communities,” President Obama said shortly after losing the gun control vote in the legislature.
“Gun-control legislation failed loudly following the Newtown school shooting, but that has not stopped President Obama from leaving Congress behind to launch a broad gun-control campaign of his own. Between the December 2012 massacre and the Navy Yard mass shooting Monday, Obama has taken 25 separate gun-control initiatives, all of which came from executive actions that did not require congressional authorization.”
During the Presidency of George W. Bush from 2000 – 2008, the Democrats were constantly whining about President Bush’s overuse (and misuse) of the Executive Order. Looking back, they weren’t wrong… but they sure were hypocritical. As soon as President Obama swept to power (and it is power, not leadership) he began using the Executive Order as his own personal checkbook. While Republicans could probably do more to stop his rampant abuse of the office of President, the liberal media has goose-stepped to every note the President has played and run interference for him as he rules by fiat. If the Republicans were to actively stand against his use of executive order, the media would just continue the narrative of the Republicans as obstructionists who simply hate the President because of the color of his skin.
This is the game the left plays with conservatives in our country and around the world. The watchdogs who are supposed to be protecting the integrity of our government have fallen under the spell of their own leftist message. They can clearly see that the President and the Democrat Party have overstepped the bounds of democratic propriety and have actively turned against the citizens of our country. However, the media has chosen to turn a blind eye to this corruption of our republic because they believe the ends justifies the means! Sure the President may be shredding the constitution and destroying the civil liberties of the American people… but the things he is “accomplishing” make it all worthwhile to our liberal media. They are actively playing a part in our downfall.
It doesn’t matter what we, the people, want. The only thing that matters at this point to the Obama administration is what his royal majesty, king Obama wants… so what do we do now?
