Obama scandals involving IRS, DOJ, EPA and NSA amount to a constitutional crisis

(NaturalNews) "Trust us, we're from the government." That statement is no longer a punch line, thanks to President Obama, who had the temerity recently to suggest Americans should not question him or his regime, despite a plethora of still-unfolding scandals that make his the most corrupt administration in the history of the country.

As reports began to roll out earlier this month that the National Security Agency, arguably the most technologically advanced and powerful spy entity on the planet, has been targeting American citizens by the tens of millions, Obama - during a speech in San Jose, Calif., June 7, said with a straight face that we should ease our suspicions and just go about our business:

If people can't trust not only the executive branch but also don't trust Congress, and don't trust federal judges, to make sure that we're abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we're going to have some problems here.

A constitutional crisis

Continuing, the president sought to mock critics, which is what he always does, by saying, "You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we've struck the right balance."

Well, we are examining the "details," Mr. President, as they continue to roll out, and let me tell you something: We've already got 'some problems here'. If the "right balance" of government action vs. constitutional restraint for you is blatant, serial violations of the Bill of Rights, I'd call that a problem. A big problem.

Since Obama won reelection last fall, Americans have witnessed one scandal after another unfold: Benghazi; IRS targeting of conservative/Tea Party groups; Justice Department targeting of the phone records of reporters; the NSA's covert data-mining of electronic data on millions of Americans. And let's not forget the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-walking operation; Obama's order to the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act, a constitutionally passed law; and his department's refusal to pursue federal voting act violations against the Black Panthers, who intimidated white voters outside a polling station in Philadelphia in 2008.

I'm not sure what is more frustrating, Obama's dismissive arrogance to our outrage or his pained justification for the actions of his bureaucracy. Either way we've definitely got some "problems." I would even go so far as to call the sum of these various scandals a legitimate constitutional crisis, but I doubt that the current regime or its enablers in Congress are up to the task of addressing the systemic problems and righting the American ship of state.

Obama is the perfect post-constitutionalist president because of inherent Marxist-socialist tendencies (government-run healthcare, punitive tax policies, class warfare rhetoric, etc.) are well-suited to the task of running the congressionally empowered, bureaucracy-heavy Administrative State that he inherited. Therein lies the root of every single one of the current scandals.

Obama is a symptom, not the cause

There is a reason why the U.S. president is often referred to as "the most powerful man in the world." Upon taking office, presidents become heir to the behemoth federal bureaucracy, which falls under the control of the Executive Branch. As head of that branch, the president, in essence, is given near-dictatorial powers because a) he sets the political tone for the bureaucracies; and b) because regulations issued by the various bureaucracies favor the president's agenda and have the full impact of law.

With this in mind, it's easy to see how power can be concentrated within one branch of government - unlike the three equal branches envisioned by our founders - and then abused.

Our constitutional republic has been hijacked by generations of would-be tyrants and petty dictator types who have nearly succeeded in usurping every piece of liberty our founding fathers fought and died to enact. That's why you have no food freedom, no freedom from Big Medicine and Big Pharma, no real private property rights (too many regulations and if you don't pay your taxes for one year, you lose your property altogether), no freedom to choose your own healthcare, and no more privacy.

Obama is merely a symptom of this usurpation, not the cause of it - though given his background as a student of Saul Alinsky, he is a master at the game.

Welcome to post-constitutional America. This is just the beginning.
