A shocking lack of ‘Ability’…or a violation of trust?

“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.”"

(U. S. Constitution, Article II, section 1, clause 8)

Refusing to enforce existing immigration law, legislated by Congress, violates that oath. Claiming ‘executive privilege’ - to fix what he broke – is egregiously arrogant.

Preserve, protect and defend, to the best of his Ability – that which he seeks to end, by attacking and destroying existing law?

Republicans must defend the Constitution that provides them their office. Failure to do so in the face of such wanton hubris would be a dereliction of their sacred duty.

This is not about immigration law…

…it’s about honoring the document that makes this Nation great.

Anniversary Edition – Use RICO-type statute to freeze assets of amnesty-enablers?

(BlueCollarPerspective celebrates Nov 19 as our 2nd anniversary of publication. We take this opportunity to thank our readers for their support and continued interest.)

Those who question an ‘Impeach ‘em All’ philosophy (to stop executive action amnesty) might stop and think about the power of freezing all assets of those impeached.

Such a threat could give pause to civil officers who might otherwise choose to follow the Dear Leader, Barack Obama, down an unconstitutional path of executive amnesty.

Anyone who feels the frozen-asset solution too harsh should consider this: Martha Stewart went to jail for obstruction of justice. Not enforcing law is obstruction

…shouldn’t public employees (paid with tax dollars) be held to the same standard?

We lack a legal background; use of RICO-type statutes can be left to lawyers. But in the past, many have lamented such effective use of strong-arm ‘frozen-asset’ tactics.

We simply point out, if assets are in danger of being frozen UNTIL such time as a final reckoning is determined, civil officers may see ‘discretion as the better part of valor’.

(Is there a lawyer in the House?)

How to stop ‘executive’ amnesty? Constitution says impeach them ALL

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.”

The Constitution gives Congress the power to set immigration law. There are laws on the books that already cover immigration – Obama simply refuses to enforce them.

Any executive action that he takes which violates existing federal law is actionable as a ‘high crime and misdemeanor’…any civil officer aiding and abetting is violating the law.

Republicans should stop worrying about which scenario Obama will use to invoke his will – cite the laws already prevailing, and warn all offices of government to comply…

…or suffer impeachment with their Dear Leader.

Impeach every last one of them, from the directors in the Department of Justice to the Department of Homeland Security, if they act in a manner contrary to existing law.

(Message to Harry Reid – Obama’s not the only one who can ‘go big’.)

Want proof that liberal policy has devastated black Americans?

No one says it better than Thomas Sowell – The current problems facing blacks in America owe more to the Great Society than to slavery.(emphasis in bold added)

His contention is that the Legacy of Liberalism has done more to devastate blacks since the mid-1960′s than the legacy of Slavery before, and he offers this data to prove it:

  • Pre-1960′s rapid rate of poverty decline slowed after the War on Poverty began;
  • Pre-1960′s, most black children were raised in 2-parent families, but 30+ years later the majority of black children were being raised in single parent families;
  • Pre-1960′s murder rate among blacks was 1/2 of what it became 20 years later, “…after a legacy of liberal law enforcement policies.”

Take the time to read the entire article, then ask your Liberal friends to comment.

Impending riots could be stopped by REAL black leaders

As a grand jury nears release of its verdict in the shooting death of Michael Brown, dire warnings of racial unrest and rioting mount, if the police officer involved is exonerated.

The saddest word in that sentence is “if”.

Brown, 18, was 6′ 4″ and weighed 292 lbs. Just prior to being ordered to stop walking in the middle of a street, he had shoplifted a convenience story, assaulting the clerk.

Minutes later, when ordered by a policeman to move to the sidewalk. Brown viciously assaulted the officer in his car, and tried to get the officer’s gun, which discharged in the scuffle. He ran, but then turned on the injured officer, who shot and killed Brown.

Brown was shot 6 times before going down, the last bullet probably hitting him as he fell to the ground. Autopsy results of his wounds show he was facing the officer, who had taken a severe beating to the face and eye during the minutes-earlier scuffle.

Common sense tells us there was strong provocation for the shooting, when facing a 6’4″, 292 lb assailant who had just shown no hesitation by attacking the police officer.

If the color of these two participants were reversed, there’s not a black person alive who would question whether a black police officer should be exonerated based on the facts.

But where are the black leaders now?

Sharpton, Jackson, and, yes, Obama, must take a strong stand on this issue.

Allowing more violence now does no service for the people and businesses in our communities, for the black community as a whole, or for the rioters themselves.

It just creates more white-v-black resentment…

…but maybe, that’s what black leaders want?

Obamacare hubris – an egotist PhD who refused to stay on the QT

MIT’s Jonathan Gruber couldn’t suppress his glee over scamming stupid Americans.

As video after video is uncovered, this PhD’s scorn for the American people reveals the mindset of a Liberal mentality that does not bode well for Obamacare, or its makers.

Obama tries to deny culpability, even as White House logs show Gruber in the Oval Office with him during the law’s crafting…a fact Obama’s lapdog media can’t cover up.

Ironic, when you think about it…

…the ‘Narcissist-in-Chief’, being undone by a narcissist PhD.

If you’d like to contact ‘Dr.’ Gruber, here’s your opportunity.

Shut-up & focus, GOP – If Obam’nesty was a winner, it would have been done before elections

Republicans need to focus on core issues – economic vitality and job growth.

Obama’s amnesty threat is a distraction, a strategy to just muddy the waters.

Facing an apocalyptic midterm election, does anyone doubt Obama would have pulled that trigger, if it would have helped him retain Senate control for the Democrats?

The American populace oppose amnesty. In liberal Oregon, voters struck down driver licenses for illegals, 66% v 33% (and its Democrat Senator is up for re-election in ’17).

Black- and Hispanic-Americans see illegal immigrants taking their jobs, and benefits.

Republicans should stop trying to act as if they’re the smartest adult in the room. They will never win that battle with a mainstream media who carry Democrat water daily.

They can’t stop the talk-show crowd from postulating, but they can minimize the hype. If asked about an Obama-amnesty hypothetical, Republicans should have 1 response…

…’Our U.S. Constitution will show us the way.’

January 2015 is when the rubber hits the road.

The price of independent thought…

A reader asks why there’s no advertising on BlueCollar…

In today’s politically charged atmosphere, self-styled righteousness rears its ugly head to suppress the free exchange of ideas and impose their values through vicious attacks.

And their first target, to suppress honest dialogue? They attack a blog’s advertisers.

Then there’s the old adage ‘perception is Reality’. Few believe it possible for a product or service to accept advertising dollars…without being influenced by those dollars.

Advertisement-free, BCP cannot be seen - or construed - as bending to outside forces.

BlueCollar will never solicit ad dollars. If, in some instances, donations are received, it’s with the understanding that BlueCollar will always continue its independent journey.

On November 19, we celebrate two years of service to that principle.
