This past week, Americans have witnessed something that we never thought that we would see: The President of the United States, who swore an oath to protect us, punishing us, because he is not getting his way is a battle with Congress.
His punitive measures against us have bordered on the insane, as this past week he not only threw barricades and barbed wire in front of our national parks and monuments, Obama even put safety cones out on the highway below Mount Rushmore, forbidding Americans from pulling their cars to the side of the road, to view this wonderful monument which honors past American Presidents.
Heck, this weekend he even tried to close the ocean down at Florida Bay.
These measures were bad enough. However, now the President of the United States is, literally, attacking our children.
President Pantywaist has shut down America’s Amber Alert System.
WashingtonExaminer.com has the story…
The Amber alert system, the national missing-child warning program, has been shut off due to the government shutdown, according to the Department of Justice.
“Due to the lapse in federal funding, this Office of Justice Programs website is unavailable,” it says on amberalert.gov.
Just 17 percent of the government is shut down, and Friday the Obama administration allowed union representatives to return to work.
So, union members could return to work, but the website to alert Americans to missing children had to be taken down?
The AMBER Alert Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry, to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and the safe recovery of the child.
AMBER Alerts are broadcast through radio, television, road signs and all available technology referred to as the AMBER Alert Secondary Distribution Program. These broadcasts let law enforcement use the eyes and ears of the public to help quickly locate an abducted child. The U.S. Department of Justice coordinates the AMBER Alert program on a national basis.
The AMBER Alert Program was named in honor of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman who was abducted while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and was later found murdered. The program is used in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
As of January 1, 2013, the Amber alert system had saved over 600 children.
What is Obama’s purpose in shutting this program down?
What sort of man, much less an American President, would do something this petty and callous?
Fighting with Congress is one thing, but, don’t take your vindictiveness out on America’s children, Obama.
And, while I’m at it, are you aware that Obama and his Administration threatened furloughed Catholic Priests, telling them that if they performed their duties, i.e., Sunday Mass and Baptisms, that they would be fired?
What sort of American President interferes with our Military personnel’s Freedom of Religion?
Answer to both of the above questions: a tyrannical one.
Jonathan Mayhew (October 8, 1720 – July 9, 1766) was a noted American minister at Old West Church, Boston, Massachusetts.
Mayhew graduated from Harvard College in 1744 and in 1749 received the degree of D.D. from the University of Aberdeen. The following is an excerpt from “A Discourse Concerning Unlimited Submission and Non-Resistance to Higher Powers”.
. . . Those nations who are now groaning under the iron scepter of tyranny were once free. So they might probably have remained by a seasonable caution against despotic measures. Civil tyranny is usually small in its beginning, like “the drop of a bucket” till at length, like a mighty torrent or the raging waves of the sea, it bears down all before it and deluges whole countries and empires. . . .
. . . Tyranny brings ignorance and brutality along with it. It degrades men from their just rank into the class of brutes. It damps their spirits. It suppresses arts. It extinguishes every spark of noble ardor and
generosity in the breasts of those who are enslaved by it. It makes naturally-strong and great minds, feeble and little; and triumphs over the ruins of virtue and humanity. This is true of tyranny in every shape.
There can be nothing great and good where its influence reaches. For which reason it becomes every friend to truth and human kind, every lover of God and the christian religion, to bear a part in opposing
this hateful monster. It was desire to contribute a mite towards carrying on a war against this common enemy, that produced the following discourse. And if it serve in any measure to keep up a spirit of civil
and religious liberty amongst us, my end is answered. There are virtuous and candid men in all sects; all such are to be esteemed. There are also vicious men and bigots in all sects, and all such ought to be
I realize what I am saying. by using the word “tyranny” and I stand by its use. Obama has exceeded his Constitutional Authority and completely forsworn his Presidential duties as protector of America’s Citizenry, tossing both aside to embrace an ego-driven role of didactic dictator, determined to teach his “subjects” a lesson for trifling with him.
The fact that Obama even thought that Americans would side with him in his battle with Congress, knowing that it would mean the full implementation of Obamacare, the socialist healthcare System, which no one wants in the first place, was a prime example of narcissistic behavior. And, as his Gallup Poll Approval Rating of 41% shows us,
Pride goeth before the fall.
Until He Comes,
KJ UPDATE: The Amber alert system has been restored. It appears that President Pantywaist, AG Holder, and the rest of the Administration caught some heat for taking it down…and, rightfully so.
