Feel free to verify the “executive orders” at will… and these are just the major ones…
I’m sure you’ve all heard the tale of the “Frog in the Pot”… you all comfortable???
Watch Obama’s actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where America is headed.
Actually the number is really 135. Most were reinforcing previous EO's dating back to the Carter and Kennedy Administrations. Doesn't make any less evil, just setting the record straight.
That's about 23 a month, almost one a day. The constitution doesn't mention "executive orders", there's no amendment for them either. How can this be constitutional?
Executive Orders are only supposed to be signed if they support an existing law that has been legislated by Congress. An EO becomes it's own little law, but must not be a primary law. If a president tries one on and issues an EO as a primary law, it can be challenged and struck down - not Constitutional ! so it goes
The real concern for patriots should be the primary laws that are destroying the United States, not so much the EOrders
illegal laws by and illegal usurper are NULL AND VOID!
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES is a Corporate Charter, and is not the Constitution for the united states. The CEO makes the laws and the head of the Corporation is immune, until and unless a De Jure authority put the Corporation on notice, then arrests. Otherwise, whatever the Corporation directives, (EO's), goes.
oops =) ... i meant 1871 ..
Americans are too stupid to govern or defend themselves against today's predatory citizens, and they hold us hostage about helping to defend themselves. I call FOUL. Kill your CFRtv. BOYCOTT any newspaper carrying articles from the Rothschild owned Associated Press.
