Artist PERFECTLY Illustrates the Three Branches of Government According to Obama

Leading Constitutional authority and liberal law professor Jonathan Turley claims that Obama’s executive amnesty a “dangerous and unprecedented threat to our Constitutional system.
Via Breitbart:
Liberal George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley believes that President Barack Obama’s forthcoming executive amnesty will be an “unprecedented” and “dangerous” overreach that will threaten America’s constitutional system of governance.
“This would be unprecedented and I think it would be an unprecedented threat to the balance of powers within our system,” Turley said on Friday’s edition of Fox News’ The Kelly File.

Turley noted that Obama is intent on going ahead with his executive amnesty that may “again violate separation of powers” even after the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Obama did so while making unconstitutional recess appointments. He said that Obama “isn’t being particularly coy about” taking on legislative duties to “become a government of one.”
Reports have indicated that Obama will grant executive amnesty and temporary work permits to possibly five million illegal immigrants as early as this week. Turley, who has opposed presidents of both parties when they have acted unilaterally, has previously said the “framers would be horrified” by the executive actions that are putting constitutional system at its “tipping point.”

Turley added that Obama’s executive amnesty will be even more dangerous because Obama would be defying the will of Congress immediately after an election in which voters rejected Obama’s illegal immigration agenda.

“We have a Congress that is coming in with the full voice of the American people behind them,” Turley said. “That’s what an election is. Now, you may disagree with the outcome, but you have to respect the outcome.”
“We have a separation of powers that gives us balance,” he said. “And that doesn’t protect the branches. It’s not there to protect the executive branch or legislative branch. It’s to protect liberty. It’s to keep any branch from assuming so much control that they become a threat to liberty.”
