Just because there is an election going on does not mean that I stop watching what the current President is doing. President Obama has been as busy as ever, and not just on the golf course. Obama will not leave office quietly. He is hell bent on leaving his mark. Some of the things he is doing will last even if Trump wins in November. Let’s get started.
Barack Obama refused to allow the FBI to investigate the Clinton Foundation after they found cause to look at the Foundation in the email investigation. Later, news reports leaked by anonymous sources said the FBI had in fact started such an investigation. Their work will probably run past the election at which time will probably be dropped. If Hillary wins, she will stop the investigation, if Trump wins, Obama will end it before Trump takes office.
Lawsuits against the State Department regarding the Benghazi attack are in the courts. The Administration is refusing to turn over documents that will embarrass the State Department. The FBI has announced that they have recovered 15 thousand of the deleted Clinton emails and many are Benghazi related. A federal judge has ruled these will be released before the election. The Administration is appealing this ruling and trying to have the emails released after the election. The State Department is going through the emails and redacting classified information, even though Clinton has claimed under oath that all the emails were about her daughters wedding and yoga.
As many of you know, the United States is giving up control of the internet as we know it. The United States has controlled the website addresses. We have kept an orderly system to eliminate duplications of names and kept open free thought of content. All that is about to change.
Congress has twice attached riders to other legislation requiring the Commerce Department to keep the internet functions. No federal funds can be used to relinquish control of the various functions.
President Obama and the Commerce department are ignoring Congresses demands. Once the transfer occurs on October 1, the U.S. will no longer have control. It can no longer be reversed.
The United States will have no control over allowed content or naming rights, etc. Maybe we will need a new medium to communicate.
The Obama Administration continues to hand out amnesty to illegal aliens despite a court order requiring the Administration to stop the practice. Obama continues to defy Congress and the courts by processing the illegals and releasing them into the population. By the time the courts make a final decision, Obama will be out of office and the illegals will not be able to be tracked.
The Border Patrol agents have been instructed to tell the illegals how to avoid deportation.
The President has a fetish about our prison at Guantanamo Bay. Again, the President continues to defy Congress and is emptying the prison by sending the prisoners to foreign countries. These nations agree to supervise the prisoners for a specified period of time and then they are free to do as they please. About 30% of these prisoners return to the battlefield to kill Americans. Obama has a goal of closing the facility before he leaves office. The President wants this facility torn down so it can not be restarted by a future Administration.
The U.N. Climate Control Treaty has started to lose support. There are several dozen countries still needed to sign before the treaty is in force. Obama is doing all he can to get this treaty enacted. The United States has not ratified this treaty but once it is in force we will be forced to support the concepts or we will lose our trading partners. The U.N. will have the ability to enforce the provisions by force. That means that U.N. forces will have authority on U.S. soil. There will be an emphasis on renewable resources and a phasing out of carbon based fuels.
We are coming up on the 20 year anniversary of a U.N. proposed treaty that would prohibit nuclear arms testing. Congress rejected this treaty and refused to ratify it when it was sent to the Senate for ratification. Obama is insisting on enforcing it anyway. In order to do this, he is deliberately ignoring the Constitution. Obama just doesn’t care. Obama is doing all he can to remove America from world power status. Obama believes that all nations should be equal.
SMALL ARMS TREATY
The Small Arms Treaty was written by Hillary’s staff at the State Department. This treaty has been proposed many times over the past 30 years. No previous President would even consider such a treaty because the intent is to restrict American ownership of guns. This time, America is proposing the U.N. legislation. John Kerry signed for the United States. The Treaty has not been sent to the Senate for a vote because the Administration knows there are not the votes for passage. Because the U.S. signed the Treaty, we will be bound by it until the next President rescinds our participation or Congress rejects the treaty. The Treaty calls for a registry of all gun owners, collected by the U.N. They will use the signatory nations to do the recordkeeping. Currently, there are not enough nations signed onto the treaty for it to go into force.
President Obama has been a very busy boy this last year of his Administration. Much of the damage he is causing will take decades to undo.
