Country-Jacked by the Driver (Edited)

No one will do any­thing at all about the fact that the Pres­i­dent of the United States took $400 mil­lion in cash, put it on a plane, sent it to Iran as ran­som for Amer­i­can hostages, and did so with­out con­gres­sional approval, which is how all US Trea­sury trans­ac­tions are sup­posed to be han­dled, accord­ing to the U.S. Constitution.

It is far from the first time that Pres­i­dent Barack Obama vio­lated or ignored the Sep­a­ra­tion of Pow­ers out­lined in the Con­sti­tu­tion, and, of course, that’s the point. This pres­i­dent fig­ured out a long time ago that he could get away with pretty much any­thing, and not have to suf­fer impeach­ment, cen­sure, or even too much harsh lan­guage from the other two gov­ern­men­tal branches or the long ago-​hijacked Big Media.

Why not? Because, as we all know, it is no longer about what the pur­pose of the exec­u­tive branch is, nor what its con­straints are, but about who is doing the exe­cut­ing and the color of the skin of the executor.

Ours had become a nation of men rather than one of laws. Of course that was the intent all along of the Fun­da­men­tal Trans­for­ma­tion, was it not?

So now, the Execu­tor can lift money from the Trea­sury, out in the open, arrange for money to be paid to an avowed enemy – osten­si­bly bow­ing to the terms of a set of kid­nap­pers. All the other times it was people-​for-​people, this time it’s money-​for-​people

So now, those of us who have been watch­ing this hap­pen — watch­ing the build-​up of the moun­tain of law­less­ness by this Admin­is­tra­tion are ask­ing our­selves and each other the musi­cal ques­tion: what’s next?

Because there are much worse things that this Admin­is­tra­tion can do. As a mat­ter of fact, I’d wager that, by the time we get an answer to the ques­tion “what’s next,” the next Big Crime will already be done.

No one will do anything at all about the fact that the President of the United States took $400 million in cash, put it on a plane, sent it to Iran as ransom for American hostages, and did so without congressional approval, which is how all US Treasury transactions are supposed to be handled, according to the U.S. Constitution.

It is far from the first time that President Barack Obama violated or ignored the Separation of Powers outlined in the Constitution, and, of course, that’s the point. This president figured out a long time ago that he could get away with pretty much anything, and not have to suffer impeachment, censure, or even too much harsh language from the other two governmental branches or the long ago-hijacked Big Media.

Why not? Because, as we all know, it is no longer about what the purpose of the executive branch is, nor what its constraints are, but about who is doing the executing and the color of the skin of the executor.

Ours had become a nation of men rather than one of laws. Of course that was the intent all along of the Fundamental Transformation, was it not?

So now, the Executor can lift money from the Treasury, out in the open, arrange for money to be paid to an avowed enemy–ostensibly bowing to the terms of a set of kidnappers. All the other times it was people-for-people, this time it’s money-for-people

So now, those of us who have been watching this happen—watching the build-up of the mountain of lawlessness by this Administration are asking ourselves and each other the musical question: what’s next?

Because there are much worse things that this Administration can do. As a matter of fact, I’d wager that, by the time we get an answer to the question “what’s next,” the next Big Crime will already be done.
