Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
On President Obama's first Inauguration, he put his hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. During his first term, however, he did everything but.
Yesterday he swore in for his second term, using 2 Bibles. But before he even reached that date, his actions already negated many of our Constitutional rights with the sweep of his Imperial, Executive pen.
He circumvented the Constitution and our Congress with his Executive Order on immigration. His EPA sends out its decrees that usurp our liberties and property rights. His 23 Executive Orders relating to gun control infringe on the 2nd Amendment.
In recent days, some Democrats allude to the 14th Amendment as justification for a president raising the debt ceiling without Congress! (The 14th Amendment dealt with Reconstruction: Citizenship, Civil Rights, and paying Civil War debt. It was not meant to authorize a carte blanche credit line.)
The President is acting more and more like an Imperial President, not a co-equal branch of the government.
Alas, only the animatronic Disney version of our president swears to uphold our Constitution multiple times a day. The real President Obama thwarts our Constitution every chance he gets.
Mark Levin: If Obama sidesteps Congress on debt ceiling, 'no choice' but impeachment
Mark Levin refers to Obama as the Imperial President in his book Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America .
