President Obama has violated Section Three of the Palestinian Accountability Act of the United States Congress by authorizing a $192 million aid package to the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Accountability Act clearly and unequivocally stipulates that “no funds available to any United States Government or agency…may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.” By signing a Presidential Waiver and authorizing payment of the 192 million dollars Obama is unilaterally going against the law, the will of Congress and the wishes of the American people as expressed by their democratically elected representatives.
This is very dangerous because it flouts the American system of checks and balances and usurps the authority of both Congress and the law, by the President of all people. Obama is sworn to uphold the law and act within its restraints, not defy, circumvent and usurp it as he is doing here and as he has done on many other occasions. The use of Presidential Waivers and Executive Orders to circumvent and defy the law and usurp authority is nothing new for him. He must be stopped and this waiver, plus all the others for that matter, must be reversed if the American system of government is to survive and America is to be prevented from becoming a one-man dictatorship, the dictator being Obama.
Obama has done many things that are harmful to America and Americans during his time in office but his continual use of Presidential Waivers and Executive Orders is arguably the most threatening to freedom and democracy in the United States because it means that power is being concentrated in the office of the President and the person of Obama, that restraints on presidential power which have served the country well throughout its existence are being ignored or cast aside, that elected representatives are fast losing their authority and say and that the system of checks and balances is being whittled away and disappearing. Obama thinks he can act like a dictator instead of a President and his continual use of Presidential Waivers and Executive Orders, among other things, means he is doing exactly that.
He’s dead wrong, and hopefully the American people and their elected representatives will desert and reject him and show him how dead wrong he really is.
In justifying this latest Presidential Waiver Obama said that the aid package was “important to the security interests of the United States”. He’s dead wrong about that too. Its detrimental to the national security of the United States, extremely detrimental, because it will help to keep the Palestinian Authority in power and enable it to keep on carrying out its anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic activities (including its violent activities), because it rewards the PA for acting against the wishes of the United States in any number of areas and because it encourages the PA to keep on doing everything it can to torpedo peace negotiations and peace itself…it strengthens the Palestinian Authority which in turn weakens Israel, America’s most important ally in the Middle East and probably anywhere else as well, and makes war in the Middle East much more likely, war in which the U.S. cannot avoid getting involved in. That’s about as detrimental as you can get. Obama didn’t enhance or even maintain the national security of the United States by enacting this Presidential Waiver. He diminished it. A lot.
Message to America’s elected representatives in Washington-don’t let him get away with this.
Message to Americans-vote the guy out of office.
While you still can.
