LAWLESSNESS IN THE HEADLINES: Obama Violates Oath of Office over Obamacare – AGAIN!

Before a person takes the office of President, they take the following oath of office:

Article II

Section. 1

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The Constitution – which the President must swear to protect, preserve and defend, leaves all power to make law to the Congress.  It charges the President to faithfully see to the execution of those laws.  It does not give the President the authority to enforce the laws he likes and to ignore the laws he does not like.  He is charged with enforcing all laws:

Article II

Section. 3.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that he does not care to keep his oath of office.  He has done this many times, and in many areas, and he has boasted about it in the process.  Here is a story that illustrates just one such case:

The White House Just Reportedly Delayed Yet Another Key Obamacare Provision

The White House has reportedly delayed another key provision of the Affordable Care Act — one that prevents employers from providing better health care to top executives versus employees.

The news comes just days after the White House announced on Tuesday that it would extend the Obamacare enrollment deadline for individuals who have pre-existing conditions.

The problem here is that the Affordable care Act does not give the President the authority to make these postponements he keeps granting.  In short, the President is not only failing to enforce the law, he is changing it as he sees fit.  If you doubt that he does not have this authority under the law, here it is, read it for yourself:

Affordable Care Act

There is a term for when the law is ignored:

Full Definition of LAWLESS

1:  not regulated by or based on law

2a :  not restrained or controlled by law :  unruly

b :  illegal

Note the last definition: ILLEGAL!  That means the President is breaking the law, which brings us to another part of the Constitution:

Article II

Section. 4.

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.

For those who doubt that Obama’s actions fall under the definition of high crimes and misdemeanors, here is the definition from the Meaning of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” and the definition from the free law dictionary: High Crimes and Misdemeanors.  Clearly, Obama has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, yet Congress has done nothing about this – which is more lawlessness on top of lawlessness.  There is a word for this, too; for when a nation’s leaders do whatever they want without regard to the laws of the land:
