    Obama's "Become The Very Danger The Constitution Was Designed To Avoid"

    JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He's becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.

    Not much more to this. But the single most important issue that threatens our republic is succinctly explained.

    Thanks for posting the article.

    I saw it but got rushed off to bring the Christmas Tree in. Dress it and light it tomorrow, and local tradition is to leave them up until the thaw.

    Expanding on the quoted excerpt a bit; Turley identifies four co-equal branches of government, with O'bummer at the head of two, the constitutional Executive Branch and the unconstitutional Administration Branch that derives its power from the Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction.

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    The Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction.
    That right there is the death knell for our, constitutionally limited, republic. That is saying that the government does not even have to pretend anymore.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Of course if the judges say it then its constitutional.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
