In a recent article by educator Thomas Sowell, he stated:
“Like other truly talented phonies, Barack Obama concentrates his skills on the effect of his words on other people — most of whom do not have the time to become knowledgeable about the things he is talking about. Whether what he says bears any relationship to the facts is politically irrelevant.”
Talented phony is a gross understatement when speaking about Barack Hussein Obama. We still have no proof of his birth and citizenship, his Social Security Number is fraudulent along with his Selective Service registration form. There is strong reason to believe that he was enrolled as an Indonesian citizen who received federal aid while attending Occidental College. Everything about him reeks of being a phony, an imposter and a usurper.
As Sowell stated, Obama concentrates on his skill of his words. So let’s look at his own words when it comes to the legal right of the President of the United States to take military action without the approval of Congress.
In 2007, when Obama was launching his presidential campaign, he told the Boston Globe:
“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
“It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.”
He went on to say that the only legal way the president can take military action without the consent of Congress is in instances of self-defense when the US is being directly threatened.
In 2011, Obama took military action in Libya without the consent of Congress and the US was not in any immediate threat of danger or attack. This is typical of someone who cares little about living up to their own words as only a phony would do.
Obama’s side-kick, Joe Biden is just as bad. In 1998, then Sen. Joe Biden spoke on the Senate floor, stating:
“Given this, the only logical conclusion is that the framers intended to grant to Congress the power to initiate all hostilities, even limited wars.”
In 2007, Biden stated:
“The president has no constitutional authority to take this country to war… unless we’re attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked,”
In 2011, Biden supported Obama’s actions using our military in Libya without the consent of Congress.
Now, Obama is contemplating using military force in Syria because of their civil war and use of chemical weapons. He does not have the approval of Congress, yet and I heard Biden on the news fully supporting Obama if he does get us involved without first going through Congress.
How can a nation trust its leaders if they continually say one thing and do the opposite? It’s not just a one-time thing either, as it seems to be the norm with both Obama and Biden. I know that many politicians, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, etc. make campaign promises that they never keep and probably never intended to keep, but next to Lyndon B. Johnson, Obama is the most lying and deceiving president in my life time. And like Johnson, Obama is guilty of high crimes against the US, however, like Johnson, he will never be held accountable for those crimes, while the American people and our military personnel pay the consequences and live with the aftermath.
