The Hand That Holds the Pen

Once upon a time, in the 1980’s through the ‘90’s NBC had a Thursday night primetime line-up of shows that were such power houses at the time, they used to refer to that night as “Must-See TV”.  Tonight, that should be the case when the president takes to the microphone—and to his teleprompter—to let us know that he’s finishing his fundamental transformation of this country with an executive order that he’s planning to sign tomorrow making legal citizens out of millions of illegal aliens.  Normally, I wouldn’t think any speech by this president is worth watching since he’s already proven time and again to be an adversary to the truth.

But this is different.  Tonight, by his own definition, he stops being our president and becomes the emperor.  This should be a speech every network would want to air, but they most likely won’t because normally, when the president speaks, his people would request that time so the speech can be shown in primetime.  The administration never requested the time for this speech, but what’s more interesting is which network he did want to be seen on tonight.  Obama’s speech will be shown on Univision, the network for Latin America, on a night when it will have a large audience watching the Latin Grammy Awards.  In fact, the awards show will be pausing to air Obama’s speech so he can be sure that those he most wants to hear his words will hear them.

On this night, our president will thumb his nose at the Rule of Law; at the voters who recently rejected his policies, the immigrants who are here legally, working and saving their money to go through the proper channels toward citizenship…and to the black community and lower-income workers that even he once admitted would be hurt the most from mass amnesty.

What he’s about to do is not welcomed by most Americans, whether they were born here or not.  Criticism for his pending actions is being made all over conservative media, but no one makes a better case against Obama than the man himself. In 2006, in his autobiography, The Audacity of Hope, he said that large numbers of illegal immigrants coming across the border are detrimental to those already struggling here since it will harm “the wages of blue-collar Americans” and “put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”

That wasn’t just something he said in the book. He stated similar concerns while he was running for re-election and told his pro-amnesty followers that he didn’t have the authority to do what he is about to do tonight. He said it so many times, it makes it seem like he’s a man that protests too much. After almost six years in office, he’s shown that he’s calculating enough to have been planning to do this all along…especially if his party ever lost control of both houses of Congress. With nothing to lose himself, and apparently no will among enough of the leaders in Washington to hold him accountable, Obama is a government unto himself.

Before you think that this is just the rant of some blogger living in Red State America, check out a compilation video from Washington Free Beacon that highlights Obama Past criticizing the actions of Obama Present.  Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States once said, “It’s not the hand that signs the laws that holds the destiny of America. It’s the hand that casts the ballot.”

However, President Truman could never have imagined Obama’s America, where up is down; solid is liquid, and the Constitution is…well, it’s treated much like a baby treats a diaper.
