LEVIN: We Need Obama Control!

By CR Wire

Back from his holiday vacation, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin took to the airwaves Monday night to lay out exactly what’s at stake with President Obama’s executive action on gun control.

Levin argues that, by ignoring the separation of powers in the constitution to implement gun control measures, President Obama is fundamentally transforming the American regime into a progressive dictatorship in which he can remove your natural law right to protect yourself and your family by himself, without Congress!

The Founders separated the powers of government into three co-equal branches in the constitution to prevent this and ensure that one branch of government would be kept in check by the others. Levin argues that the American Constitution was specifically designed to prevent someone like President Obama from taking away your liberties.


The constitution empowers the Republican-controlled Congress with the power of the purse to stop President Obama. But Republican leadership has long since surrendered that power.

I don't need or want anyones "permission" to arm and defend myself. I don't need a law to tell me its right or wrong. Those are my primal freedoms, they come before and above any man made "law".
That is just the way it is. It is the truth that matters.
I'm thankful there is a 2nd Amendment, not for my liberty, but to define the limits of those who think they have some special right to rule over me and my liberty. And that specifically applies to presidents, it particular it applies the most to any of them.

I like what the great John Mosby wrote on this score.

The fundamental human right to self-defense and its tools does not stem from any piece of parchment or other act of man.
It is much more elemental than that.
I have more principled reasons for my stand on owning firearms, and I don’t care one whit in the world for the Second Amendment. It means nothing to me. My rights have nothing to do with the U.S. Constitution, and when it dawns on people that it has finally been erased — the principal danger of all political premises posed as “social contracts” — my rights will still validly exist, even if I die defending them. I own firearms because I have a right to private property. That is the First Thing.
…As the Regime takes off the gloves, every day it creates tens of thousands more American Patriots who realize yes, it really probably is going to get that bad, so really, they may not have that much to lose after all.
So why not stop being afraid and stand up to the Regime?
Join the honorable Resistance, or make your own. Garden, cook at home, teach your children, and get right with the Lord. Cut expenses, avoid taxes, learn new skills, and build savings of tangible real assets. Train, stockpile, recruit, prepare, guard, protect, and defend.
Make this your finest hour."
-John Mosby,

Without the right of self-defense humans have no rights at all.

It is time for Congress to pull him up short. Impeachment is a wild dream, but something which should have been done long ago. It is not too late.

Cowardice, I would remind congress, is rarely a successful strategy.

Citizens of America - it's wayyyy past time to revolt. Stand up and defend our rights and freedoms. If we don't, we will regret it. BIG TIME.

It's even worse than the "progressive dictatorship" Levin rails against. Given Congress's and the federal courts' own penchants for transgressing against Constitutional constraints, it creates a competitive totalitarian system in which all three branches have essentially unlimited power, and compete with one another for dominance.

"Divided government," a phrase that implies a limiting nature to the three-branch federal government when different parties control different branches, has ceased to protect individuals' rights in any substantive way. The parties compete against one another for access to power, but as matters stand neither of them is at all aligned with the interests of the citizen.
