"Speak for England, Arthur!"
Those words were spoken by Leo Amery, member of England's Parliament as Labour Party leader Arthur Greenwood rose to respond to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain on September 2, 1939, after the Appeaser of Hitler at Munich gave a lackluster speech on whether England would aid Poland against invading Nazi Germany or not. It was certainly a dark time for Europe, for England, and the world, which was soon to be plunged in World War II and needed leadership to stand up against the forces of tyranny that sought to take over Europe, and, eventually, the entire world.
Tonight, America is on the cusp of some dark and uncertain days ahead, the outcome of which threaten the very ideas and principles that our nation was not only founded upon, but also made it great and a beacon for all peoples around the world.
On Friday, Richard Milhous-Hussein Obama will, by executive order (without Congressional approval) grant amnesty to an estimated five million illegal aliens at an event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This also comes on the heels of uncertainty in Ferguson, MO, where racist activists like Al Sharpton, who have been egged on by Obama (who urged the protesters to stay the course), are threatening violence if police officer Darren Wilson is not criminally charged with the killing of the thuggish Michael Brown, who was caught on video strong-arming a store clerk in a robbery before he was shot and killed by the officer.
Obama's actions in bypassing Congress are, despite what the Regime bootlickers at the Associated (with Obama) Press say, unprecedented. (Here's why what Reagan and Bush 41 did does not compare to Obama's actions). Unlike Reagan and Bush, Obama cannot get the "immigration reform" (read: amnesty) bill he wants passed, so, he's going to thwart the very fabric our government was founded upon, the Separation of Powers laid out in the Constitution, and bypass that lawmaking body.
Unconstitutional lawlessness of the type one would see in a third-world dictator or communist despot is going to be taken by the President of the United States. But why should the law matter to Obama? He embraces lawlessness, or he would not be standing on the side of anarchists and rabble-rousers in Ferguson, MO.
But it's more than just the Constitution and the rule of law, it is a slap-in-the-face to those immigrants who went through the years of red tape, etc, and followed the rules to become legal citizens of the United States, because the very idea that made so many risk their lives to come to this nation--liberty--is being replaced with the tyranny of a rule-by-fiat from a narcissistic, thin-skinned, and petty little man stung by the rebuke he and his party received from the voters of America two weeks ago tonight.
But though the American voter spoke against Obama and his radical ideology and designs (even Blue State Oregon rejected overwhelmingly giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens), Obama smirks in their face and goes ahead anyway, because he has no fear of retribution right now.
Why? The new Republican leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are adamant that there will be no government shut down. Even impeachment, which Obama's actions (as well as others) warrant, is off the table.
The Democrat Party, who made such an issue of alleged abuses of executive power during George W. Bush's administration, is marching in goose-step with Obama's unlawful action. Clearly, their loyalty is only to Party and to their leader..."My Party, Right or Wrong." What about the oath you took to America? To defend the Constitution "against all enemies, foreign and domestic?"
Likewise, what about the Republican Party and their leaders, McConnell and Boehner? They seem more intent on destroying any conservative, Tea Party Senator or Congressman but will play kid gloves with Obama because they're so afraid of being called "racists," and Karl Rove said "let's not turn people off by looking mean." To the Republican Party, I would remind them as well that you took an oath to this nation to defend the Constitution "against all enemies, foreign and domestic." You did not take an oath to Karl Rove and the GOP consultant class who are more afraid of losing an election than they are of winning one, the US Chamber of Commerce, or the crony-capitalist corporatists who want amnesty just as bad as Obama.
This is not a Republican or Democrat issue, nor a right or left issue. This is about the rule of law and whether or not those whom the voters entrusted two weeks ago with leadership to stand up against Obama's radical "transformation of America" will (as Ronald Reagan said 50 years ago) "preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we'll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness."
Because if not now, when will those "leaders" finally have the courage.
Sorry to say, If not now, it will be too late, because that fine line will have been crossed, and the cowardice of Boehner and McConnell will reward Obama's lawlessness and encourage him to push the envelope even further.
Now's the time for those we entrusted to power to, for once, have the courage to "Speak for America!"
