Right now there is a lot of talk about “executive orders” from the president regarding amnesty for millions of illegals. We all get to follow yet another horse race. Will he or won’t he. Then will congress act to override it or not. Will there be hearings, will there be impeachment etc. This is yet another laughably bogus distraction where nothing of substance ever gets discussed.
The president is supposed to be an executive running the government. He is there to serve THE STATES as the head of a FEDERAL government with limited powers. That’s all. Nothing more. He is not granted the authority to make law for the land. Not a little. Not some times. Not kind of. He does not have that authority, period.
How in the world is granting millions of people amnesty who are already IN VIOLATION of U.S. immigration law, not making a new law? At a MINIMUM it is directly failing to enforce the law that is already on the books. If he does it he has violated his own oath, not exercised some absurd “implied power”. There are no such implied powers.
The constitution is AT BEST an adhesion contract between the states or the people and the federal government. ANY AMBIGUITY in any contract is resolved AGAINST the party drafting it. And that is at best in this case, THE FEDS. This point was so important they had to have the bill of rights to get the stinking thing passed. And the 10th amendment takes any doubt on this topic away. It says:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
How much clearer could they have made it that the people and the states are not granting “IMPLIED” powers in this document? The feds have to be able to point to a SPECIFIC grant of rights IN THE DOCUMENT” to DO ANYTHING. Do you see this? There is NO AUTHORITY to issue these absurd “executive orders” on any and everything.
The president is empowered to act as an executive to get things done AS AN EXECUTIVE. But if I hire a general contractor to build my house I expect that he will direct the subs. I don’t expect that he will take it on himself to sell the house, or to then claim he has the authority to decide where my kids go to college. But that is the kind of extension that the miracle of “time” has wrought. Before we go further, just look at the actual language here in the “phone bill” that supposedly governs you:
The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America…. The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States; he may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.
He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.
THAT IS IT people. Where the heck is this supposed “executive order” power? Nowhere. How about the power to grant amnesty or to do anything else like they do with these executive orders? Nowhere.
He has very little power. He is not “the most powerful man in the free world”. He is a bureaucrat who serves the state legislatures to run a venture that is supposed to benefit them. NOTHING MORE. The president is allowed to act as an executive to enforce the laws and in those areas the constitution gives him power to act.
The entire thing is a fraud on the people. Perpetrated by conning them that the other branch of the same government, the court, is the arbiter of what their other buddy in the same conspiracy to seize power can do. It is absurd. Can Congress grant me the power to issue “citizen orders” whereby I exercise my own discretion to issue “orders” about who lives near me and how loud they can play their music, or how about how much money is owed to me at the end of a case? No. They don’t have the authority to do that.
I have no more power to make laws than the president. And Congress cannot even grant the president the power to make law any more than they can bestow on me the power to make law. The constitution, says they must make the law, only they are allowed that power. Do you get that? He cannot make law. The people and the STATES have not granted him that power. That is all there is to it.
This has nothing to do with separation of powers or checks and balances. Those are red herrings put out to confuse you. The people are confused by this whole mess because they WANT YOU CONFUSED. They KNOW you won’t bother to just look at the stinking phone bill and see what it says. So they have you thinking this somehow relates to being “coequal” and “checks and balances”. Both laughable lies. It doesn’t have anything to do with any of that. That is all just an intentional muddying of the waters done by none other than the supreme court. The muddiers in chief for the feds.
THERE IS NO AUTHORITY FOR OBAMA OR ANY OTHER PRESIDENT TO ISSUE THIS TYPE OF “ORDER”. The employee/politicians in Washington WANT the president to have it because it allows the status QUO to grow the government secretly. There is no vote, nobody even knows what the orders are! You have to go search them out. The presidents issue these “executive orders” and nobody holds them to account for them. Get it? It is all part of the distraction to grow the feds power. Plain and simple.
There is no constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders.
The term “executive power” Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, refers to the title of President as the executive. He is instructed therein by the declaration “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” made in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5, else he faces impeachment. Most executive orders use these Constitutional reasonings as the authorization allowing for their issuance to be justified as part of the President’s sworn duties, the intent being to help direct officers of the U.S. Executive carry out their delegated duties as well as the normal operations of the federal government: the consequence of failing to comply possibly being the removal from office.
An executive order of the President must find support in the Constitution, either in a clause granting the President specific power, or by a delegation of power by Congress to the President.
Are you f’ing kidding me? They have to do it otherwise they might get impeached for failing to carry out their oath. Does this in any way describe anything that we ever hear about? Of course not. It is all just lies and cover. Honestly that is laughable. But this is what the government wants the people to “understand” about them.
Of course the executive branch has the power to carry out the laws. That is what the executive branch does. If you hire a guy to sell your house does he now have the right to issue and “executive order” to tear it down? No. How about to take your credit card and go on vacation? Well why not, he issued an executive order. All hail the order. The whole thing is absurd.
The point I am making is simple. The Constitution says precisely ZERO about giving the President any power to run around “issuing orders” to whole groups that change legal status etc. Just like he has no power to run around handing out money to countries for his pet projects. I have showed you what the constitution says. There is NOTHING there except that the “executive power shall be vested in a President”.
I urge you to go see how even the HERITAGE foundation sees the issue. And remember, the Heritage group is one of those sadly mistaken “conservative” organizations. Look at some of the early examples they give of how this ” power” was used and perceived.
…a joint committee of Congress requested that President Washington “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving.
Washington issued a proclamation in 1793 stating that the United States would be “friendly and impartial toward the belligerent powers” James Madison, among others, criticized Washington’s proclamation as an over extension of executive authority and an infringement on Congress’s authority to decide issues of war and peace.
On August 7, 1794, President Washington issued a proclamation ordering those engaged in the Whiskey Rebellion to disperse and calling forth the militia to put down the rebellion. This proclamation was issued pursuant to statutory authority delegated to the President.7 The statute provided that the President first had to warn citizens to disperse and return to their homes, but that he could call forth the militia to deal with any individuals who did not follow this command.
The first and third are the result of congress directing the president to do something. The only example that is not is the second. And it certainly wasn’t much of anything by today’s standards, but even that was considered to have been OUTSIDE his authority to do, by one of the holy fathers of our holy constitution, Madison. Do you get that?
And where has the supposed scope of this imaginary power all ultimately been “decided and determined” You got it. The supreme court. That group of never to be touched gov’t employees we supposedly all have to listen to. They leave it to the power of time and the obfuscators in chief up there in the Supreme court to slowly steal any and every power the feds want but don’t actually have.
There were two main earlier cases. One during reconstruction in 1866. Everything that comes out of the era is a laughable fraud. The Feds had just invaded and waged war on the southern states and then put their own people into the state houses to run things. The people on the court were so far from “impartial” it is absurd to even consider it to be anything except a kangaroo court.
In this decision, the court shockingly found that the feds, through the President were entitled to “enforce reconstruction”. Who could have guessed that the same government that just waged war on these same people would then magically find that they were entitled to do this too?
The next big case to the extent there even are such things was in the mid twenties. And that case had 3 dissenting opinions saying there was NO POWER to do it. Here is how even Wiki describes one of the dissents. You can read the case yourself if you care to:
In a lengthy dissent, Justice McReynolds used an equally exhaustive analysis of quotes from members of the Constitutional Convention, writing that he found no language in the Constitution or in the notes from the Convention intended to grant the President the “illimitable power” to fire every appointed official, “as caprice may suggest”, in the entire government with the exception of judges.
The other two dissenters were Brandeis and Holmes each writing their own dissents. Two of the supposed power houses of the court. Do you see people? Whenever something suits them they pull it out. When it doesn’t suit them, well, ignore it. Holmes is a genius, unless what he says isn’t what we want. It is always the same.
Remember, there wasn’t even any agreement that the president had the power to fire any and all government appointments at will, yet now we are arguing about whether he WILL turn the entire statutory framework of Immigration law on its head. This is how it works. Time and constant propaganda and slowly the people who want power just take more and more.
Nothing about the congress having to oversee the president or those clowns on the supreme court coming down like oracles to “give us the law” is a CHECK and balance. The check on the federal government comes from ITS MASTER the states. Yet they have bamboozled everyone into waiting for the supreme court.
I don’t care how many “supreme court opinions” from the same governments’ employees say he has the power. I can read the document. The president does not have the power. The document is CLEAR. He doesn’t.
None of the people up there in Washington take their oath seriously because they are immune from any state’s legal authority going up there and arresting them for PERJURY. They can only be charged by the same government they oversee. The supremacy clause you know, interpreted by your good friends down at the Supreme Court. Do you see the scam? How laughable is that? Yet the people accept that?
This is what tyranny looks like. Yet the people run around and support it as though it is the height of freedom? Implied powers like this are an insult to the intelligence of any thinking person. And yet the “smartest guys in the room” run around discussing bs and reinforcing the joke of an idea that we must look to the supreme courts’ opinions to know what the stinking phone bill so clearly says. Remember the brilliance of the whole system can never be questioned. Nor can the ACTUAL constitutional design. We must accept what they tell us it is without ever dare questioning.
It is always the same my brainwashed brothers. Nothing they are doing has any authority or legitimacy. They just all pull the wool over your eyes and the people run around dying for their “freedoms” in wars as though they have freedoms to protect, and killing anyone they are told by the same group of bandits is supposedly trying to take them.
It is sad and comic at the same time to me. So simple to see through if you will just step outside the box they have you in. Just step out into the light my friend.
That’s all for now my brainwashed Brethren, don’t be down,
