Be Careful What You Wish For

Barack Hussein Obama and other Statists are talking about invoking the 14th Amendment claiming it gives the President the authority to raise the Debt Ceiling and by-pass Congress. I guess they are referring to Section 4 of the Amendment which states: …The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned

Who is questioning the validity of the debt? No one. Many people are questioning the amount of debt and the need to cut spending. The debt has been incurred and needs to be paid. The Government has the money to pay the debts that would not cause a default without raising the debt ceiling.

I am not an attorney, however I can read and I do not see where in the 14th Amendment it gives the President the authority to by-pass Congress and raise the Debt Ceiling on his own. We are not living in a Dictatorship, at least not yet.

Nevertheless, since Obama and the Statists want to invoke the Constitution they may want to check out the following: Section 3 of the 14th Amendment states: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Article 2 Section 4 of the Constitution states: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

It is considered an Act of Treason to give aid and comfort to our enemies. The Obama Regime has been funding the Taliban and wants to fund the Muslim Brotherhood. The Taliban and the   Muslim Brotherhood are enemies of the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy of our civilization. Their slogan says so openly, their way is Jihad, and their method is death. The Muslim Brotherhood calls for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within.  Nevertheless, Barack Hussein Obama has opened formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood and wants to support them with $3 billion.  

Therefore, wouldn’t this act be considered giving aid and comfort to the enemy and considered an act of Treason?   Wouldn’t Obama be violating his oath of office he swore to, which is to uphold and defend the Constitution? After all, the primary responsibility of Government is to protect its citizens from its enemies. Furthermore, the Constitution specifically states the President can be impeached for an act of Treason. If Obama decides to go through with supporting our enemy, The Muslim Brotherhood, will Congress have the COURAGE to impeach him?
