Could Obama Change The Law to Give Himself a Third Term?

OBAMA-SEEKING-THIRD-3RD-TERM-560x275

At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on December 3, Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) asked that if President Barack Obama has the “prosecutorial discretion” not to enforce all the laws he’s been ignoring, is there anything to stop him from enforcing election laws and, for instance, run for a third term?

“If the president can fail to enforce immigration laws, can the president likewise fail to enforce election laws?” Gowdy asked of Simon Lazarus, senior counsel to the Constitutional Accountability Center, who was giving testimony. The panel was titled, The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws.”

Needless to say, President Obama has been ignoring an awful lot of laws. From not prosecuting gun cases, to refusing to prosecute the vote fraud committed by the Black Panthers, even to his 2008 announcement that he wasn’t going to enforce the DOMA laws, Obama ignores all laws he doesn’t like while using his Executive Orders to create law out of whole cloth to push the many extremist, left-wing ideas he’s failed to get through Congress.

“If you can dispense with immigration laws or marijuana laws or mandatory minimums, can you also dispense with election laws?” Gowdy asked Lazarus.

For his part, Lazarus said that Obama couldn’t do such a thing.

But Gowdy pressed on and asked the logical question, “Why not?”

“Because we live in a government of laws, and the president is bound to obey them and apply them,” Lazarus replied.

But Gowdy wasn’t to be so easily pushed off point.

“Well he’s not applying the ACA, and he’s not applying immigration laws, and he’s not applying marijuana laws, and he’s not applying mandatory minimums. What’s the difference with election laws?” Gowdy asked pointedly.

Of course, all Obama’s supporters blithely assure us that Obama wouldn’t be so anti-American, anti-law, and anti-Constitution as to ignore his lawful duties in the way Gowdy suggests. But the fact is he’s already done it dozens of times before. So, why not again?

So, what if Obama decided just to throw away the 22nd Amendment just because he feels like it and run for a third term? Who would stop him?

What do you think? Could this most anti-American President in American history be so arrogant? Tell us in the comments.

    Then we would have a dictator…

  • tayronachan

    I don’t think he’ll try for a third term. He won’t need to if they can get Hillary Clinton in.

  • Paul

    Why are we even talking about this. Obama has broken the law, as well as Holder, Sebelius, Clapper, Lerner, Justice Rodgers , the IRS, EPA, NSA, DHS and the list goes on. The Congress has more than enough circumstantial evidence to at least hold investigations. Issa will not even delegate leaders to investigate the various charges much less threaten to prosecute. Government cannot fix itself. It is up to the people to fix them and hold it accountable to the certain enumerated powers delegated to the federal government under the Constitution. That means we must take back the powers to the states and to the people. We have lost our representation at the federal level. The states must declare their sovereignty under the 10 th Amendment.

    • Cracker122049

      We all seem to see and think what needs to be done to begin to fix this but the real question is does anyone truly believe this is going to happen? Does anyone still believe that this can be accomplished in a court of law that is as corrupted as the traitors we need to go after?Does anyone really believe that law enforcement will actually go after the bad guys? Does anyone really believe that it is even possible to vote the bums out?I think NO to all of the above.There is only one answer that will ever work and nobody want to face the real facts!

        Good thing the rest of the TPubs are as chickenshit as you and will never do anything except talk big and then run away.

  • cliffordanthonypaiva

    …nothing new here of course…as ALL DICTATORS DEMAND ETERNAL POWER…and this Constitutionally ILLEGAL ALIEN is hardly different…and since he obtained office through violation of Article II, Section I of the Constitution…he has absolutely NO intention of leaving the office Constitutionally…and it appears that neither the American People has the power to prevent this criminal from merely IGNORING the 22nd Amendment…

  • NCVigneron

    I am appalled that none our our politicians have the guts to stand up to him – Dems or Republicans!!??

    • Cracker122049

      Our politicians are all traitor scum just like him,they are all in the fleecing of whats left of this country!

  • Retired RN

    Of course he could! I thought that was the general idea after he “serves” out his second term. The only thing that is standing in his way is the fact that the American people still have their guns. So that will be the next problem to overcome. But I’m sure he has a plan up his sleeve for that too! Find an excuse to declare martial law and see how fast the guns disappear. That is, unless we use them first……..

    • Robert Dnago

      The kniggher better worry about my bullets!

    • John Steam

      I will never be disarmed by the government. Those who come asking me to disarm will be sent packing. Those who come to take them by force will find me “very uncooperative”.
      As soon as they take my guns, my liberty is over. Without liberty, what is the point of life? To suffer under the boot heel of an oppressor until I die of natural causes or of abuse under my captors? I think not.
      I have already outlived many famous rich people. My riches thus exceed anything they ever had. I am grateful for the nice life I was able to work for and to earn. If I must go out, it will be on a high note, not groveling under the control of the usurpers of my freedom.

  • JW M

    So what is new? Bush II signed McCain-Feingold into law saying he believed it unconstitutional
    Our “representatives” in congress have done nothing about numerous violations of law and the Constitution.

    But then that was in 1996……………………

    • Cracker122049

      Bush and his gang of war criminals were traitors too,fact is that list is so long it is mind numbing!

  • laura m.

    Majority American people are beyond stupidity, very possible Obuma would trash 22d amendment and run third term. Civil war is long overdue.

    • Cracker122049

      So very true Laura m.

  • Paul

    Civil war is not the answer. It would pit us against each other so the globalist can call for martial law and shut the country down, arrest or assassinate the patriots and bring in full spectrum dominance and control. Civil disobedience , non- compliance and state sovereignty is the answer. We didnt get here overnight and it won’t be fixed without an awakening and transformative series of events. Lets start by demanding the resignations and prosecution of the criminals under the Constitution. Take back control of your sheriffs, local commissioners and Governors.

    • Cracker122049

      Talking and voting will never accomplish that but I guess wishful thinking is better that the cold hard facts. I’ve listened to the BS so long it makes me want to puke!WTFU and believe your eyes for a change and turn of the TV set!

    • Chana Kaleky

      remember he signed an executive order in which he can declare martial law even in peaceful times?

      • rich

        Yes, he has the power to do just that. I believe Mr. Obama is not done in 2016 and will indeed use his powers to remain President after that. Getting rid of our guns is only a matter of doing it a little bit at a time until it’s too far gone for him to be stopped. Once we lost our weapons it’s very easy for him to put us into subjugation. The taking down of America has already started and Obama is not about to watch it NOT work. We might as well begin getting use to calling him King Barack and with the way Congress can’t get together on anything maybe it won’t be a bad thing for this handsome black man to be our ruler for life. If he wins in 2016 he will never lose again! The name does have an interesting and lovely sound to it- King Barack!

  • Earline Clark

    Legally by the Constitution he cannot put aside our laws, but since he is the muslim in chief and has so blatantly already ignored laws he can and will in fact set aside the law of him not being able to run a 3rd term. Look for it people, it’s in my humble opinion, judging from what he has already done to our U.S.A. he will be our dictator, not our illegally sitting president. BTW, I know that president and other words on here referring to obama are not capitalized as they should be, but as I have no respect for this man , I refuse to show him any.

    • Cracker122049

      There is a platform this traitor needs to be standing on and yes it is elevated!

  • Nexusfast123

    I hardly think Obama is left wing. Leaning towards fascism
    would be a more apt description given who is pulling the strings – the power brokers. His executive team is filled with ex Wall Street types, people from the previous Bush administration, people from corporations, etc.

    It has historically been the right of any president to declare a state of emergency and to take action necessary to protect the nation. The US has a history of granting or tacitly accepting expanded presidential powers in times of national crisis.

    Would be a simple step beyond what has been put in place to declare an emergency, lock down the nation and close down the other political institutions of the State. Who would have the power to revoke this? Well, the President I guess.

  • Raymond Acuna

    Obama CANNOT change the law.
    To make this kind of change would take a Constitutional amendment, which has to be ratified by a majority of states.
    I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
    Not enough years left in office … 😉

    • rich

      Unless he declares martial law and eventually abolishes the Constitution.

  • Terry S

    The whole system is fucked. I’m sure 120-125% of the non whites and a like amount of of welfare cases will vote this turd in again. We don’t have a chance. Get the ballots back on to paper (marked paper not punched paper), not electronic.

  • smart idiot

    This is exactly why I just throw my head back and laugh every time I hear people whine about what the constitution says. To those (with marxists ideals) who don’t care about God given rights and natural laws in the first place IT means nothing, because that’s all the constitution really represents, a written form of what is already in place until someone takes it away from you.

  • Sheri

    Don’t ask Obama. He likes to talk to himself and ask himself questions. Then he answers his own questions – He get better answers that way . Must be narcissistic.

  • imbustinloose

    To stop this nonsense demand the impeachment of this lawless cretin. Even if the impeachment is blocked by Reid in the senate there would be a stain on Obama’s record stop him from running for a third term.

  • SadAmerican4America

    BO can do what he wants — he’s done it; he’s said it; Congress does nothing to stop him. Members of Congress took an oath to defend the Constitution; they have not defended it. There is no one who has the courage to stop BO — no one except God Himself returning to remove the false messiah from the throne and show BO who the REAL MESSIAH IS! Surprise, surprise, BO, it’s not you! Can’t wait to see you dethroned!

  • rich

    I think there’s no reason to expect that Obama WON’T run for another term and if he does he will win easily. Somehow this foreigner has completely taken over and he won’t be stopped now. Black America is coming and all us white people better get ready for slavery. He has the arrogance to do it and he has the military to defeat us. It’s been one step at a time for the future King Barack and his plan is moving right along!

  • Well, he can’t. But what’s to say we won’t get someone just as bad or worse? Nothing! At least not until Article 6’s Christian test ban, by which biblical qualifications for civil leaders were eliminated, is repealed.

    When the late 18th-century founders banned Christian tests, it was inevitable that America would end up with nothing but nincompoops, scoundrels, and outright criminals leading the nation.

    For more regarding Aricle 6’s Christian test ban, see online Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt9.html.
