MUST READ: Why Instapundit says Obama should RESIGN

Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, writes today that Obama should resign for violating his oath of office and resorting to intimidation and thuggery against the man affiliated with the so-called anti-Islam movie:

INSTAPUNDIT – WHY BARACK OBAMA SHOULD RESIGN. Just for the record, this is what it looked like for a man who made a film that made the Obama Administration uncomfortable:

Here’s the key bit: “Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”

When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.

THERE’S MUCH MORE



The Times of Israel reports that after they finished intimidating him and exposed him he won’t return home for fear of his life:

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed for about half an hour at the station shortly after 12 a.m. in his hometown of Cerritos, Calif., said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department.

After that, deputies dropped Nakoula off at an undisclosed location.

“He is gone. We don’t know where he went,” Whitmore said. “He said he is not going back to his home.”

So much for free speech in America.

Obama won’t resign so we must kick him out off office in November. We must and it can’t be stated strong enough.

You only have the rights you are willing to fight for. And THAT, ladies and germs, is why I skirt the edge of appropriate language. Rather than accept PC and being non offensive, I tend to believe that my right to say what I want trumps your right to not be offended.

I have a question, we know that this administration is claiming that the events in Cairo and Libya and now all over the middle east were the “direct result” of this short film. Isn’t it possible to find out how many people had viewed the film before these horrific events happened? or even now for that matter. I would think that the numbers would be quite large to get this many people fueled up to reck havoc in such a short period of time. I’m curious! I want to know which came first, so to speak, the chicken or the egg?

Honestly, I don’t believe the film is the cause of these events. I believe the film is the distraction set up to coincide with these events.

Anti-Islam Filmmaker Donated Million Dollars To Obama Campaign . Blame the movie Blame the movie. Blame the movie. Even though “the movie” was on YouTube for months prior to the collective indignation of thousands of Middle Eastern Islamists all coming together on the eleventh anniversary of September 11th (through wild coincidence, no doubt), we are being told by our government and our media overlords that we must blame the movie. You see, if we blame the movie for the burning of our foreign outposts and the brutal murders of four Americans (including our Libyan ambassador who was reportedly raped), we won’t blame the burners and the looters and the murderers and the rapists. You see, if we blame the movie for the Middle East burning, we won’t blames the Islamists who are doing the burning and looting and raping and murdering.

The LAtimes coverage of this story and others leans so far left that they updated the story on July 15th 1:46 am. The richest lady in the world said “she could not compete with $2-a-day salary” they translated that to she wants to pay people $2 a day headline (something she did not say). I wonder how much money the LATimes owner has maybe he should pay his editors $2 a day.

If it had been Bush, they would be screeching McCarthyism, Fascism, Nazism, etc.

The Hollywood left still makes movies, writes passion plays, sing songs, and lament over the blacklisting of proven communist and Soviet agent Hollywood writers in the 50’s.

If Bush were the one interrogating and intimidating Mr. Cerritos, it would give Hollywood fodder for another 60 years of movies, passion plays, songs, etc, lionizing this “artist” and demonizing Bush for his fascistic intimidation of this innocent film maker.

Since it is Maobama and involves a politically correct “religion”, these same people are silent.

I find it a wee bit unbelievable that this man was taken in for “other” things just after his film hit the fan. Rubbish. Did it really require half a dozen people to bring him in, with photographers at the ready, as though he were a mass serial killer finally caught? This is all staged to scare anyone in this country from doing anything against the government. It’s exactly what we voted for in 2008 – tyranny.

This is indeed, very scary. This is one example, how many others are out there, going unreported? Think about it-a few years ago, we would all be labelled a bunch of “right wing conspiracy nuts” for believing that this could happen. I am reading a book now called “In the Garden of Beasts” – http://tinyurl.com/8jju8nq – it is an account of the US Ambassador to Germany during the 30’s. When you read what happened during that time, how the Nazis presented a picture to the rest of the world of a “happy, prosperous” country, how nothing had changed under Hitler, how in fact, the country seemed to be prospering, while in fact, Jews and non-Jews alike were rounded up for “questioning”, to be put in protective custody, how a journalist was made to leave Germany for telling the truth of what was really happening, the parallels are frightening.

Per Michael Ledeen: “No serious person believes that an obscure movie shown to less than a dozen people many months ago was the “cause” of the simultaneous assaults in Cairo and Benghazi. Or that the assaults were unrelated, let alone spontaneous. Or that there was no state actor involved in the operation. The event is strikingly similar to the “cartoon riots” against Denmark. In both cases there was no reaction to the original “offense” against Islam. Many months passed before the cartoons – duly altered to enhance the presumed “Islamophobia” – were publicly displayed to justify a carefully planned campaign that turned out to have been crafted by the Iranian regime and its Syrian ally. In the current case, the Iranians were ready with a crowd to demonstrate at the Swiss embassy in Tehran (our surrogate in Iran).” Bottom Line what we have here is a person brought in for… Read more »

Obama has abused his authority repeatedly and Congress won’t do anything. Technically this guy wasn’t arrested for speaking out against Islam, so i don’t know that Congress can prove that he was. He did violate his probation, apparently. It is fishy, however, that whenever someone embarrasses the administration they find a reason to drag them into custody. They already realeased this guy, but not until after they released his name and he is terrified to go back home. Maybe that was the intention…..to scare this guy into shutting his mouth.

Obama has earned impeachment many times over. He is a traitor. Not only does he not uphold the laws of our nation, he has people arrested for exercising free speech. It is not illegal to ridicule a religion no matter who it offends. You never see libs coming to the defense of Christians when they are ridiculed, and it’s the libs that participate in it.

There are two more films on line and the one in question was still up because Google decided that free speech was still free. The film was made in 2011. The other films have also been up for awhile. So whay all the consternation now? Unless this film was used as a pretext to attack US interests. Which it is. The real reasons that Mooslems are all in a lather were revenge for killing al-Libi, freeing the Blind Sheik, passage of a UN resolution to ban criticism of Islam and proving once again, that terrorism works. This administration has been derelict in its duty to the constitution and to the lives of the diplomats that died by ignoring advance knowledge of the attacks. In the military that’d all be up for court-martials, and Dempsey in his dereliction of duty to the First Amendment (in a saner administration) would be forced… Read more »

His policies are stictly third-world which is exactly what academia is all about: Anti-colonial, anti-western, anti-Constitution, anti-american, anti-Israel and neo-antichrist. He’s a patholigical liar. A narcissist with gradiose illusions of himself and his power. He embraces the law of Positivism and wishes that he could be the arbiter of morality and law instead of Nature and Nature’s God. He is a tyrant-in-waiting who pays obsequious court to the people; he is a demogogue. His propagandists are so pathetic anymore even some in his Goebels machine aren’t buying into his crud.

Jamie Glazov pointed out in his thesis…that both Islam and the left are united in their hatred of the west. That Obama would take the side of any of our enemies is just the natural positiion for someone who hates this country as much as he does. He’s just like all Marxists. They revel in hedonism but want all the power for themselves at the expense of others who labor to help provide the monies that they love to spend.
They love to divide everyone by class, race, gender. But what they really are trying to do is seperate us all into two classes: The kulaks and the elite. Just like their heros Stalin, Mao and Lenin did. Its an “all for me and crumbs for you” kind of ethos (or is it pathos?).
