January 20, 2009 - Oath of Office
Bee's Note: Mark Levin's comments posted on Real Clear Politics has been shared and posted on many Conservative blogs this week. His comments express our concerns about the man soon to be sworn in for a second term as President of the United States.
For those who did not vote for Obama, it is difficult to hear our allies say "Well, you voted for him!" ("you", as in America), which is their way of saying, "You made your bed, now lie in it!". I can't blame anyone, including my close friends for thinking this way; after all, to the world it appears Americans made their choice on Nov. 6th, and there is no sense crying over split milk, or whining about it now - it is what it is no matter how disappointed many of us feel.
And, now that Obama no longer needs to campaign, he has no fear of revealing his "flexible" agenda and an ideology. An ideology that is completely foreign to America.
Today, Americans must wake up and speak out, noting that Obama is out of control and has no intentions of following his Oath of Office:
-"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 Washington Times/Community reports that this year Obama will be sworn in on three Bibles:
President Obama will use three different Bibles for his oaths. For the private ceremony on Sunday, he will use the Bible belonging to Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons."Three Bibles"! Read the Oath again! "Preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution. Really?! Obama can place his hands on three, twenty, or a hundred Bibles and with no conscience or fear of repercussions for giving false testimony, he has absolutely no intentions of fulfilling his oath. He did not fulfill his oath during his first term and he is already hinting that he will by-pass Congress and the Constitution by signing Executive Orders against the Second Amendment.
At the official inauguration, the President will put his hand on two Bibles, stacked on top of one another, the Lincoln Bible he used four years ago and one that belonged to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Liars and would-be dictators never take an oath seriously, nor do they believe the truths contained inside the Bible. To them, the Bible is as meaningless as the promises they swear to keep.
If ever there was a time to speak up and speak out, now is the time, dear America. Here are the comments by Mark Levin:
Mark Levin: "I Can Barely Contain My Fury At What Is Going On"
MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.
No discussion on the news programs about an imperial president exercising an authority he does not have under our constitution. Nothing. No discussion about all the lives saved and all the people protected as a result of the Second Amendment. Nothing. They continue to perpetuate the lie, the big lie that somehow, some new regulation, some new government fiat would have prevented what happened in Newtown, Connecticut. And then they pretend that they're for law enforcement. They pretend that they're hard on crime when they're not.
We have evidence over one decade after another of how the very same people pushing for gun control against law-abiding American citizens support radical left-wing judges who are soft on criminals, support weakened sentencing rules, decriminalizing this and that. Since when was Obama strong on fighting crime? Since when has Obama supported law enforcement? But here he is, you know, 'we have to stop gun violence.' No, we have to stop violent criminals.
Now, there's a fury in me -- I'm just being honest with you -- that I'm trying to contain. Biden, the moron Senator from Delaware, taking his train back and forth and back and forth on Amtrak. Oh wow, what a guy. Anyway, so they may do by executive fiat -- I'm trying to read between the lines -- a national gun database. Now, why would we need a national gun database? Well, listen, we need to know who has the weapons, at all times, and how many weapons they have and what weapons they have. How come? Why? The guy that killed all those people in Newtown, Connecticut, we know who he was and we know who had the weapons, his mother. So what does this national database have to do with anything? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Oh, okay, but we need one anyway, right? To prevent what exactly? To prevent what? (Mark Levin Show, January 10, 2013)
