This column squarely supports the rapidly growing campaign to replace the pliable RINO John Boehner as speaker of the House with someone who does not believe in communism and will not make deals with its White House champion.
The communist left has been successful in the United States because those who are foolish enough to believe in totalitarianism are determined to override and overrule democracy, while those who want to keep America free are not determined enough.
Mr. Obama no longer has the support of the nation, which is why not only the House but the Senate are now in the hands of the GOP. Yet he rules ruthlessly via communist entities such as the Environmental Destruction Agency, the Infernal Revenue Service and the Immigration Service, all three of which any true lover of democracy would have swept away long ago.
In effect, Obama is ruling by decree. The House refused to pass cap-and-tax, so Mr. Obama’s personal vendetta against the coal industry is waged by proxy, with the totalitarians of the ever-expanding and out-of-control EPA issuing what amount to new laws that are plainly beyond its powers but are equally plainly what Obama wants.
The IRS has been caught acting out in a nakedly partisan political fashion, deliberately and persistently targeting conservative PACs and nonprofits for unjustifiable investigations and penalties while allowing any communist front organization to operate without restriction. Then the IRS covered up the evidence that this is what it had been doing and “lost” various emails it was its duty to preserve.
As for immigration, Mr. Obama has decided – again, acting arbitrarily and capriciously – to give an amnesty to countless illegal immigrants, all of whom have broken the law of the United States.
And what has Mr. Boehner done, as speaker of the House, to reassert its authority over these rogue agencies? Article I of the Constitution of the United States is blunt and to the point: “All legislative power herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Period. No ifs. No buts. No maybes.
It is the job of Congress, and of none but Congress, to make laws. It was the plain intention of the Founding Fathers of the United States that no law or regulation or tax should be inflicted upon any or all citizens unless and until that law or regulation or tax had been enacted by the elected representatives of the people.
Yet Mr. Obama, like all communists, is arrogantly impatient. Arrogant because the Party Line is all: It is a substitute for all thought or reason. Impatient because the voters do not want communism. They have just rejected it in both Houses. But Mr. Obama does not want the mere people – for whom he has infinite contempt – to stand in his way.
And what has Mr Boehner done, as speaker of the House, to ensure that Congress, and only Congress, makes and unmakes the law of the land?
Instead of standing trenchant and firm against the usurpation by the Executive branch of the legislative power the Constitution places solely in the hands of Congress, Mr. Boehner has cozied up to Mr. Obama with all the effectiveness of Queen Cleopatra getting intimately acquainted with the asp.
John Boehner is a weak man. He has allowed Obama to twiddle him around his little finger. His pretext for effectively doing the bidding of the “Democrats” is that the wheels of government must be kept turning, blah blah.
He argues that when his distinguished predecessor Newt Gingrich stood up and opposed the “Democrats” by denying them the money to keep the administration’s day-to-day bills paid, the people did not like the uncertainty that ensued.
Yet Mr. Gingrich’s instincts were right. Sometimes it is necessary to endure a little temporary unpopularity for the sake of doing the right thing. And, though few are now taught the elements of constitutional and administrative law, one of the greatest powers given to Congress under the Constitution is the power to grant – and, by the same token, to withhold – revenue from a rogue administration that now flouts the Constitution daily.
Speaker Boehner has been altogether too nice to the opponents and haters of America, and altogether too nasty to the conservative, tea-party faction in his own party. Sometimes, it has seemed that he was more concerned to stop the conservatives whose mission is to uphold and defend the Constitution than he was to stop the totalitarians whose mission is to destroy it and replace democracy with just another copycat personality-cult Fascist dictatorship.
Let us be blunt. America and all she stands for, and all the freedoms she has won for herself and shared so generously with the rest of the world, are under threat as they have never been threatened before.
And what has Mr. Boehner done to prevent the end of America? Give me liberty or give me death, but don’t give me Boehner. He is a nebbish. If an empty taxi draws up, John Boehner gets out. He is a waste of space. He shows little sign of realizing how very close America is to going under – financially, politically and morally.
In short, Mr Boehner lacks the stature, the presence and, above all, the guts to hold for an instant longer the high office that his predecessors graced but that he merely occupies.
So please take full advantage of the special WND FedEx deal by which, for less than $30, you can write individually to every member of the House and let him or her know that you would like to replace the culpably ineffectual Boehner with someone who possesses what in English we should call cojones.
Your letters could make all the difference and give us a real speaker who will harass and badger and pursue Mr. Obama throughout the final stretch of his tired, useless and bankrupt administration and will then rebuild America from the ruins he has left behind.
