Democrats have no shame, but this is a new low even for them.
Recent talk from Democrats, especially Congressional Black Caucus, (CBC) members about having Barack Obama cite imaginary powers they find in the 14th Amendment as a way to rule by fiat are just flat out hypocritical.
CBC member Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina clearly laid out the Democrats case for dumping our democracy and crowning Obama king so he can spend every last dollar we have. He said, “I’ve said time and time again, if the President gets up to August 2nd, without a piece of legislation, he should not allow this country to go into default. He should sign an Executive Order invoking the 14th Amendment and send that to all the governmental agencies for us to continue to pay our bills. He could do that with a stroke of a pen. We’ve seen many big things done in history that way. I’ve joked with my staff the other day, ‘tell me what was the bill number of the Emancipation Proclamation.’ It was an Executive Order.”
Of course Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was made to use the federal government’s power to free slaves and “King Barack’s” Proclamation would use the federal government’s power enslave us all to the government, but to Democrats that’s a good thing.
On June 13, 1866, when the 39th Congress, which was controlled by Republicans, passed the 14th Amendment giving African Americans rights to due process and “equal protection” under law, it did so with not a single Democratic Representative’s vote. When the Senate voted to pass the 14th Amendment not a single Democrat supported it.
Only Democrats can “see” rule by fiat in the 14th Amendment.
Section 4 of the 14th Amendment only speaks about the “public debt of the United States” as it related to the costs of the immediately concluded Civil War. The language was inserted as a warning to the European bankers who had loaned the Confederate States money. It clearly declared neither the United States nor any of the newly readmitted former Confederate states would repay money extended for the purpose of furthering the “insurrection” as the Republican Congress described the War Between the States.
Section 5 brings the argument to a close for any honest person. It says, “The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”
The hearts of 19th century Black Republicans, many who were themselves slaves to Southern Democrats, would break to see their posterity voting for and becoming the very Democrats who fought every single Republican effort to secure freedom for them..
Saying “Shame on you!” to today’s Democrats would be a waste of breath.
