John Bolton: An Obama 2nd term means collusion with UN, Russia; destruction of the Republic, Constitutional rights


Ginny Simone talks to former UN Ambassador John Bolton about President Obama’s recent “open mic” slip up, raising a disturbing question: If he’s willing to offer “more flexibility” to the Russian’s on missile defense, what’s Obama willing to do when it comes to your right to self defense, if he’s re-elected.

…All that’s unprecedented here is the spectacle of the president of the United States, while the judges are deliberating, idly swinging his tire iron and saying, “Nice little Supreme Court you got here. Shame if anything were to happen to it.”

A nation can have formal “checks and balances,” but in the end free societies depend on a certain deference to the proprieties. If you’re willing to disdain those, you can drive a coach and horses through accepted norms very easily. The bit about “a democratically elected Congress” was an especially exquisite touch given Obama’s recently professed respect for the democratic process: as he assured Vladimir Putin’s sock puppet the other day, he’ll have “more flexibility” to accommodate foreign interests after he’s got his “last election” and all that tedious democracy business out of the way. His “last election,” I hasten to add, not America’s.

Aside from his contempt for judicial review and those rube voters, what other checks and balances doesn’t he have time for? Well, he makes “recess appointments” when the Senate isn’t in recess, thus circumventing the dreary business of confirmation by that “democratically elected” legislature he likes so much. But, hey, it’s only members of the National Labor Relations Board and the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, so why get hung up on constitutional niceties?…

Pillay made the comments about the controversial Trayvon Martin case at a press conference in Barbados, as she wrapped up a three-day visit to the Caribbean island nation.

“As High Commissioner for Human Rights, I call for an immediate investigation,” Pillay told reporters.

“Justice must be done for the victim. It’s not just this individual case. It calls into question the delivery of justice in all situations like this.”…

Update 2The Constitution Doesn’t Defend Itself

…We are entering a time when it may be incumbent on each of us – not just judges and lawyers – to decide if we owe any allegiance to the document that validates the acts of our government. If so, we need to defend the Constitution by denouncing those who would do away with it for their convenience, and vote out of office those who have shown a disregard for the limits this document has placed on their powers…
