More Unconstitutional Tricks By Obama

Monday, February 9, 2009

First there's the question of his citizenship, then there's Hillary unconstitutionally becoming Secretary of State, and now this:

The White House assumed control of the national Census. Is it coincidence that the census is the basis of voting boundaries? Nah...

There's just one problem. Article I, Section 2 the US Constitution reads, "The actual Enumeration [of Representative appropriation] shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct."

Congress directed that "The Secretary [of Commerce] shall perform the functions and duties imposed upon him by this title, may issue such rules and regulations as he deems necessary to carry out such functions and duties, and may delegate the performance of such functions and duties and the authority to issue such rules and regulations to such officers and employees of the Department of Commerce as he may designate."

Doesn't this mean that the Census (which determines Representative appropriation) is under the direction of the Secretary of Commerce?

Now, here's an example of chutzpah: The Republicans didn't get their act together enough to challenge Obama for not being constitutionally qualified to be President as an Article 2 "natural born citizen" so Obama's White House steals the census from the Commerce Department against the specific instructions of the constitution itself -- "actual enumeration" under Article 1.
