Trey Gowdy (@TGowdySC), Representative, Republican, South Carolina, lambasts known Legacy LIAR, President (@POTUS) Barack Obama (@BarackObama Barack Hussein Obama), KING of the Democrats

11/23/2016 3:01 Trey Gowdy Blasts Obama and Gets Standing Ovation

Speaker: You may proceed
………………………………………………..
Congressman Trey Gowdy:

Uh

Thank you madam Speaker

Thank you your Honor

Uh

Madam Speaker, President Obama announced one of the largest extra-constitutional power grabs, ever, by a Chief Executive

He declared, unilaterally, that almost five (5) million undocumented aliens, will receive deferred action under some newfangled definition of prosecutorial discretion, madam Speaker

Not only that, not only escaping consequences, he has decided to bestow benefits such as work authorization and immigration benefits

This, madam Speaker, despite the fact that the very same President over twenty (20) different times, said he lacked the power to do what he just did, and he repeatedly said he’s not a King

Now madam Speaker, his position may have changed, after the election I hasten to add, but the Constitution has not

That document is clear, time-tested, and true and it says this body passes laws and it is the responsibility, of the Chief Executive, madam Speaker, to make sure that those laws are faithfully, enforced

If this President’s unilateral extra-constitutional acts are not stopped, madam Speaker, fudal, future Presidents will no doubt expand that power, of the Executive Branch, and threaten, the Constitutional equilibrium

But

But madam Speaker, this is not a fight between Republicans and Democrats

It’s not even a fight
………………………………………………..
Speaker: I ask the Members to take their conversations off the floor

The gentleman will continue
………………………………………………..
Representative Trey Gowdy:

Thank you, madam Speaker

I’ll back up in case they missed it

This is not a fight between Republicans, and Democrats

It’s not even a fight over immigration reform

This is a fight, over whether this branch of government will ever find the courage to stand up for itself

The same document

(applause)

(gavel)

The same document, that this and all President’s swear to defend gives this body certain tools

Tools like, the power of the purse, and it’s about damn time we used that tool

So I would ask you to oppose this motion to recommit, support the underlying bill, and I will yield back my time

(applause)
