‘When the President does it, it’s Not Illegal’

After Richard Nixon resigned from office over the Watergate scandal, he was interviewed by David Frost, who asked Nixon about illegal actions of a president:

“Frost: So what in a sense you’re saying is that there are certain situations…where the president can decide that it’s in the best interest of the nation or something, and do something illegal.

Nixon: Well when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.

Frost: By definition.

Nixon: Exactly.”

Evidently, that is the same philosophy held by Barack Obama. Anything he does it not illegal because he is president.

Francis Buckley, Law Professor at George Mason University says that this kind of philosophy transforms Obama from president to king in a manner of speaking. In his book, The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America, Buckley says:

“The way President Obama makes and unmakes laws without consent on Congress; the spending of government dollars; committing America to war; and rewarding his friends while punishing his enemies makes him ‘rex quondam, rex futurus – the once and future king.’”

In an interview with NewsRadio 1020 KDKA in Pittsburgh, Buckley described how the Founding Fathers intentionally framed the new government by giving most of the power to the Congress and not the President. The Constitution was written to prevent the centralization of political powers to a single person because doing so would be a threat to the liberty they were fighting for. They did not want a repeat of England and another King George III. However, the president has assumed the powers of a king and Congress should stop him but they haven’t because they are afraid of losing voters on certain issues.

Buckley queried:

“So here’s the question, ya know we’ve got this constitution which was supposed to, it was really more than anything designed to ensure we wouldn’t get another George the third, and here’s my question, is the only part of the Constitution that’s relevant right now, as far as the federal government, is the President has to get elected every four years, nothing much else matters. Well, that would make the President what George Mason called an ‘elected monarch’ and he thought that was worse than the real thing.”

Well, thanks to the millions of blinded and uninformed American people that looked at Obama’s skin color and not what he stood for, America has elected a monarch. Obama does not act like any president in American history. He acts, walks, talks and dictates like a supreme Monarch no different than the one our Founding Fathers fought against over 200 years ago.

Perhaps it’s time for America to fight for its freedom once again. If it can’t be won at the polls, then it must be won by some other means. When Our Founding Fathers rose up in rebellion against King George III, they were labeled as traitors to the crown, but we called them heroes. I’m sure that Obama already has all of those who oppose him labeled at traitors to his crown, including yours truly. I would rather risk it all to regain America’s freedom, like the Founders did, than to continue to live under the harsh tyrannical rule of America’s first king.
