And here we go again, yet another wingnut who thinks President Obama may cancel the 2016 elections and refuse to leave the White House. And of course it’s Joseph Farah, who has never heard an Obama conspiracy theory he doesn’t publish or a fact he can’t distort and turn into NAZIS! COMMIES! MUSLIMS!
Question: Why are Americans so certain there will be a presidential election in 2016 and that Barack Obama will leave office in January 2017?
Answer: Because it’s the law and because it’s American tradition.
However, we currently have a man in the White House who respects neither the law nor the American tradition of peaceful changes of power.
He then offers a list of alleged abuses of power by Obama, nearly all of which were also true of President Bush and every other president we’ve had for decades. He actually lists the appointment of “czars” — there is no such thing, of course, it’s just a title the media uses for presidential advisers and heads of departments that were created by Congress. He lists the immigration orders, which are identical to the same actions taken by the last several presidents, none of whom Farah thought would refuse to leave office. And, of course, birtherism!
And then, of course, there’s the ever-present reality that Obama himself may not even be constitutionally eligible for office. In fact, if he’s telling the truth about his parentage and the “birth certificate” he produced after years of demands from the public is real, he could not possibly be a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.
So with all of this history – and much more, in fact – why do we assume Obama will step aside willingly from the presidency following an election in 2016?
I’m not saying he won’t. I’m just asking why. And judging from the number of questions I’m getting along these lines from the public, I’d say there’s great concern out there across the fruited plain.
Maybe we assume he will respectfully leave office after two terms because he has publicly said he would. In 2013, Obama said he and his family might remain in Washington after leaving office.
But that begs the question of whether Obama is truthful.
No president is truthful. Hell, no human being is truthful all the time. I won several bets with liberals who thought Bush would do what Farah now thinks Obama might do. I’d be more than happy to make a bet with Farah, but with a bit more on the line. If Obama refuses to leave office, I will never write a word about politics again and will declare Farah a prophet of God. If he doesn’t, Farah will have to shut the fuck up. Forever.
The comments on the article are, of course, hilariously stupid.
There is not hardly a thing this halfrican can do that would surprise me. Once in a while he may get me to raise an eyebrow, but not very often! He is going to try something to retain power, so don’t be suprised when he pulls that trick out of his hat…Obama will leave in 2017, go on speaking tours which will bring him in tens of millions and he will be a sought after celebrity. Dozens of secret service agents will protect him as he body surfs off the coastal shores of Hawaii. He will then announce his official conversion to Islam and the accolades will pour in – and the fawning MSM will bow at his feet. The coastal waters off Hawaii are well known for good sized Tiger Sharks – we can only hope one of them has a preference for dark meat and put an end to the antichrist named Obama!…
If he refuses to vacate the White House after his two terms, he is not eligible for protection from the Secret Service. One of his earliest executive orders was to do away with that protection for former presidents…(What?)
Why would any foreigner who is hellbent on destroying another nation, And fraudulently acquires that power, then spends 8 years coordinating that destruction, and gets his way with hardly any obstacles and is mostly successful in that endevor. Then leaves office and gives up that power only to have a American citizen come in and tear down everything he spent 8 years to built to destroy it? Ovomit isn’t going anywhere. He will declare dictator or use an EO to keep him in office. But I cannot see him leaving. I only hope and pray to God that I am wrong…
Obama has been exercising powers outside the scope of his constitutionally prescribed executive authority for a very long time. He’ll come up with something. Probably he’ll change the Constitution with another executive order…
He’s going nowhere, even if he finagles another election with himself as the democrat candidate. You think Hillary has the goods on every one?….this regime takes Fidel’s breath away. Why else are these Republicans caving left and right. Why else is O using the FBI to go after Sen.Menendez (D)? He stood up against the regime. Rome fell much the same way. And the US will go the way of Rome under this well-funded and communist-backed muslim community organizer…
Obama’s End Game.
He is propping up Iran and letting them develop nuclear weaponry capable of murdering everyone in Israel, capable of hitting Europe, and yes capable of hitting the U.S.A..
He has reduced the U.S. military down to pre-WW II levels so we won’t be able to defend ourselves.
Iran will hit a few major cities in the U.S. with nuclear bombs, (not Washington D.C.).
Obama will “surrender” saying he has no choice. Then he will be appointed “Administrator” to manage the “transition” to a more “peaceful” co-existence with Iran.
In other words, a dictatorship, a Caliphate, or worse.
And on and on like that for more than 600 comments.
