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


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?

Could Obama Change The Law to Give Himself 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?

    Well my friends in response to this very interesting story I would really enjoy seeing President Obama do away with or repeal the 22nd Amendment of the constituion and run for a third term. Even better. I’d like to see him elected again. Season’s Greetings to all and to all a good night.

    If Congress fails its DUTY to defend the Constitution by impeaching a President who repeatedly violates the highest law of the land, then the military, who has sworn to defend the Constitution against ALL enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC, must take action! They should also take action against any member of Congress who has betrayed the American people and our Constitution!

    It’s therefore no wonder why Obama is PURGING the military of patriotic commanders at an unprecedented rate. This strongly suggests that Obama is preparing to take his illegal activities far beyond their current levels and is PREEMPTIVELY taking out the military threat of intervention.

    It’s time for the checks and balances built into our Constitution to restore the rule of law before it is too late…

    I would like to know why the Congress is failing in their responsibility to remove this criminal from office?
    They are complicit in his crimes against America. Where does that leave honorable Americans? What are we to do? What are you willing to do? That question includes the NSA CIA FBI desk jockeys reading this post. What will you do besides carter to a criminal?
