The King has left the Constitution!
Kansas City, 4th of June - some thoughts about blind followers
We heard a lot about Benghazi, the IRS, Obamacare and so on. And as usually the nation was split in those who never were supporters of the Obama administration and those who followed their leader blindly. In fact, being a split nation, as split as it wasn't since 1860, is one of the major bad things, the US of A. had to endure since Obama took the White House.
Still, things have reached a new level, a dangerous level. Fast and Furious was a criminal operation, not just a stupid one. And when Eric Holder came under pressure, the President used executive order to protect his cronie. Which was clearly an unconstitutional use of a mechanism given to the President for entirely different purposes.
When drones were used to target Anwar al-Awlaki, things went worse. I can only repeat it: Anwar al-Awlaki was no loss for mankind. But the US President has no right to order the killing of American citizens without a court warrant or a valid verdict. The Constitution doesn't allow that. And the loss of the Constitution and the freedoms and protections, it guarantees, that is a loss for mankind.
In April 2012, the FBI probed into a trip a group of GOP politicians made to Israel. And yes, that trip included drinking and at least one evening some skinny dipping in the Dead Sea. So what? All were adults, sex didn't happen, so the question of consensuality is not appliable in the first place. All that happened there was legal by US and Israeli laws. And it is worth to mention, this trip was not taxpayer funded. What was taxpayer funded however, was the FBI probe. And what came out of it was more mud to sling for the Democrats during the election campaign in 2012. In other words, the FBI didn't work for the taxpayer, they worked for the Democratic party of America. Which would be only possible if they got their orders from Holder or Obama. The influence taking of a government agency on an election is unconstitutional.
The IRS targeted conservative groups before and during the elections campaigns. This was unconstitutional. Government agencies are not allowed to take influence on elections.
The CIA helped to paint the Benghazi disaster nice to protect the administration's girl, Hilary Clinton, now a soon to be announced hopeful for the next presidentiual campaign. But at the time, it was needed not only to support Clinton, but Obama as well. Obama just had announced "Al-Qaeda is on the run" to convince more gullibles to vote for him. Four dead Americans, killed by Al-Qaeda because the State Department ignored warnings, that was bad for his campaign. So the reports had to be edited. The reason for twelve versions of those talking points is clearly noted. Nobody involved in the process could think, this was about facts and what really happened. The political leadership clearly said, it was to cover-up what the political opponents could have used in the campaign. So, the CIA obliged on orders that came from the State Department which could only come from Clinton or Obama. Aside of this, we also still don't know, who gave orders to hold back the reinforcements in Tripolis that night, but any order from someone lower than the President himself would probably have proven as insufficient to hold the Marines back.
What we have here is a pattern. It's recurring.

If you think, the images look similar, you are maybe right, Hitler's, Khomeini's and now Obama's followers!

Phone records from journalists? No problem and don't tell the media agencies we are spying on, that the administration is spying on them. Constitutional protection of the 1st Amendment? Smoke it! Oh wait, to smoke anything but pot is politically incorrect now!
Now Kerry, Clinton's successor in the State Department announced already, the US, represented by Obama, will sign the UN Gun Pact. Lets face it, he can't without congressional approval. The Constitution says so. But then, what is a Constitution worth if nobody protects it? And for sure, the one person who should be first to protect it, dismantled it step by step and he is already busy to go further.
Yes, I say it frankly, and I'm aware, I will get in trouble for it: Obama broke his law of office. Obama has left the grounds of Constitution. And all his talking about he knew of nothing is either a lie or worse. If it is a lie, he could at least claim to have some degree of control over his administration. If he actually knows of nothing, he is entirely inept for the office. And whether he is responsible by ineptness or responsible by ordering, he is responsible! If someone actively condones a criminal act, he commits one as well by protecting the guilty party. If you give shelter to a murderer, you are an accessory after the fact. Just to say, you didn't know, wouldn't protect you if your job would including to have to know. End of the story. So, there were enough criminal acts committed to impeach Obama.
The real problem is, his followers will protect him. First the Seante Demcorats. For them it's about to keep power. But then, there will also be millions and millions of Obama followers on the streets. They don't know better. If you look in the history books, in the beginning and before they sat firmly in the saddle, dictators had always legions of blind followers. Those followers don't understand what they are about to lose. Those followers are not evil. They don't think, they support a dictator in the making and telling them so will draw their ire. How can someone say, their leader is a dictator in the making? How ...? And here is the rub: The same answer you would have got in 1917 from Russians who supported Lenin. The same answer you would have got in 1930 from Germans who supported Hitler. The same answer you would have got in 1938 from Chinese who supported Mao. From Iranians in 1978 supporting Khomeini. From Koreans supporting Kim. Now you get it from Americans supporting Obama. And none of them was evil ... or at least almost none. They were blinded by promises, manipulated, cheated. They only didn't know.
Drones, mindless followers, drawn like moths to the light of empty, often abstract promises, that's the base, dictators and all who behave like that build their power. And when they have the feeling, they are strong enough, they start to pull the screw. Constitutional freedoms got canceled. Disarming the population is very important, usually under the pretense of stopping gun violence. But in fact not dictator wants an armed opposition. They start to assume more and more rights from other branches of government. Like Obama did with his Libya war. That campaign was never acknowledged by Congress. To declare war is something, the President can't do alone. Obama did, effectively assuming already then dictatorial powers.
One of the next step is also to fill other branches with his followers. In the military, we have seen the replacement of leaders already, also in the IRS things obviously were already aligned in 2012. And in the DOJ and therefore the FBI abviously too.
So, lets face it. This isn't about skin color or regular party politics. The number of crimes, and effectively they are crimes, not just scandals, has gone beyond that. Now the question, especially those who voted Obama in have to ask themselves is, how long do they want to stay blind? How long do they want to follow their leader wherever he leads and regardless how many laws he breaks? We know, those who didn't ask were in history up for rude awakenings. And by all means, democracy per se works only, if those in office stick to the rules. Obama brokes the rules. So he put you now in the situation to decide between democracy, your very own freedom, or your king. It's in your hand to make constitutional freedom in the US last or make the dream of the founding fathers just a short episode between George II and Obama I. Because without their drones, the mighty fall.
