It’s almost baffling to see the lengths President Obama will go to defy America.
I say almost baffling, but honestly, it’s very much baffling. We’ve never seen a president who has so little respect for American values and traditions. When he meant “change” he must have meant changing America into another country.
In his final years in office, he has pushed for greater gun restrictions, massive increases in undocumented migrants, and a radical redefinition of gender roles (in grammar schools, no less).
When real crisis occurs, he is nowhere to be found. He even neglected the tragedy in Brussels to watch a ball game in Cuba.
Scratch that, it’s not baffling at all, it’s downright despicable.
His latest insult to American comes, where else, from his treatment of immigrants.
Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.
Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.
When someone becomes an American citizen, they must make an oath to defend our Constitution and way of life. It’s nothing less than what any nation would expect of its citizens. If you were to move to a new country, take up permanent residence, shouldn’t you adopt its values and live according to its traditions? If not, you shouldn’t be there.
Yet Obama doesn’t seem to care if these new Americans vow to defend their new home. It’s like he’s giving any potential terrorist an out clause, for when they decide to turn against their adopted land.
This radical change was announced a year ago, in July of 2015. Congress did not enact the change in new legislation. There was no congressional debate, no filibuster in the US Senate, and no sit-in in the House to demand that a bill to repeal the USCIS action be brought to a vote.
No, this radical change was implemented while Congress slept. Like other Obama actions to undermine our immigration laws, the Republican-controlled Congress has not used its constitutional powers to reverse the administrative action. Thank God many states are stepping up to fill that void.
Obama’s disgusting abuse of power would have brought scathing criticism to other presidents, perhaps even investigation or impeachment. Yet liberal media refuse to bring his behavior to light, and the establishment in Washington (a Republican majority, mind you) do not to curtail his treasonous behavior.
It’s up to, as always, the American people to take a stand. Obama’s time is almost up. We have a choice to elect a new president; either one that will protect our values and freedoms or another liberal crony who will erode our rights, weaken our nations, and hand our freedoms over to foreign interests.
The choice is yours.
