BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Rips Obama to Shreds… Might be Planning Something [FULL TEXT]Friday, November 21st, 2014
South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy, who chairs the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, released a statement on his website ahead of President Barack Obama’s announcement tonight of his unilateral Executive actions relating to the enforcement of immigration laws.
“The thread that holds the tapestry of our country together is respect for and adherence to the rule of law. The law is our greatest unifier and our greatest equalizer. Attempts to undermine the law via executive fiat, regardless of motivation, are dangerous. President Obama may seek a fight with Republicans in Congress, but in reality he is fighting with founders of this republic and the carefully crafted separation of powers.”

The President himself recognized his inability to do what he just did – 22 separate times. This action is not only detrimental to any chance in the new Congress for a sustainable, long-term solution on immigration, but also to the bedrock of our system of government— respect for the rule of law.”
“When the executive branch acts outside of constitutional boundaries the legislative branch must use all powers afforded it to respond and restore the constitutional equilibrium. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. Rather, it should hasten the resolve of all Americans to make certain her elected officials honor the foundational document they swore to protect and defend.”
The President did damage to the Constitution and the country tonight, and Trey Gowdy knows it. He also knows that there are various remedies that the Legislative branch can pursue to correct this, if only they find the determination to do so.
Perhaps Gowdy can rally the Congress to finally stand up for itself and reclaim it’s proper Constitutional powers, back from an overreaching Executive branch. If anyone in Congress has the gumption to take on Obama, Gowdy is the man to do it.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you are ready to see Trey Gowdy step up and lead Congress in the Constitutional fight against our ever more Imperial President.
