It is our duty to reign in a lawless president
November 21, 2014
Eleven months ago, Barack Obama declared in his State of the Union address that 2014 would be “a year of action" – with or without the consent of Congress. Shortly thereafter, the President declared his provocative mantra, “I have a pen and I have a phone."
Last night, he made good on that promise, while trampling the Constitution under foot. President Obama decreed a form of amnesty to five million illegal aliens, while mandating other changes to immigration laws.
The irony is that the immigration crisis facing America was caused, in large part, by the Obama administration's lack of enforcement of current immigration laws and our ongoing porous border security.
His misguided order is yet another expression of the usurpation of power by the Executive Branch and an arrogant dismissal of the balance of power as set forth in the Constitution of the United States. Barack Obama has repeatedly abused the limited powers of the presidency and has systematically overstepped his constitutional authority.
Senator Orrin Hatch, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued this warning to the American people: “It should unnerve every citizen that we have a president who, in some respects, is out of control."
As a constitutional attorney, I am appalled at President Obama's contemptible misuse of his office. Does he care – even a little bit – about his solemnly sworn oath to UPHOLD the Constitution? That is why I am calling on every friend of Liberty Counsel Action and every American patriot to notify Congress that they must take action now to stop our lawless president.
An immediate and powerful way to get your message to Capitol Hill is through Liberty Counsel Action's Fax Barrage. We don't take the president's actions lightly. It is absolutely necessary to reign in this despotic, imperial Commander-in-Chief.
I'm trusting Liberty Counsel Action friends to send tens of thousands of faxes today and over the course of this weekend. Use our pre-written fax letters or customize one of your own, but please send a loud-and-clear message today.
As I have often said, this is the most corrupt and divisive presidency in American history. In his six years as president, Barack Obama has proven to the American people time and again that he will stop at nothing to further his radical, leftist agenda. Join me and the many thousands of your fellow Americans who are saying, “Enough is enough!"
Thank you for recognizing your duty as an American citizen and acting today!
Mathew Staver, Chairman
