It was reported last week that three congressmen have requested a probe into the possibility that the Obama administration violated federal law that prohibits interfering in a foreign country’s affairs by pushing for the changes in the Kenyan constitution that would legalize child killing in almost all instances. Currently, Abortion is allowed only when the life of the mother is at stake. Evidently, the state department has spent over 2 million in support of this bill, and Secretary of State Clinton has been an outspoken proponent for ‘Reproductive health care’ to be included in the referendum.

Three congressmen, Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Darrell Issa (R-Calif) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla) have written to the Inspector General (IG) of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID as well as the Government Accountability Office (GAO). In their complaint, both Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have overstepped the boundary set by what is known as the siljander Amendment, which is annually included in the State and Foreign Operations appropriations Act that prohibits lobbying for or against legalized child killing using the funds made available in the act. If this act is violated, there are several differing sanctions, including up to prison and fines.
Now, whether anyone believes that much will become of this will be the question of the day, but most likely it will continue to get scant attention and die in some committee. It is of no surprise that the most ardent proponent of child killing wants to ‘gift’ his home country with what he considers to be one of America’s finest exports, the technology in extermination of ‘useless eaters’. Never mind that it is illegal for anyone of influence to attempt to influence the policies of foreign governments, but maybe the great one believes since it is really his home, he is not interfering. Either way one wants to look at this, it is very unbecoming of the office of the President when one openly violates the law in this manner.
The meddling in foreign affairs is not new for this administration, and it is becoming very clear that the only thing Obama seems to respect about this country is the exportation of what could be considered decadent technology and know how. As far as following anything that represents the law, we have another president who is a lawyer, and has claimed to be a ‘constitutional professor’ at a prestigious law school. It seems to be in his character to break whatever laws or social norms get in the way of his agenda. This, coupled with the fact his nominee for Supreme court Kagan, has a similar appetite for looking at foreign law, which by following will end up ‘meddling’ with the way our country and constitution work.
One can only hope that this issue has some resolution to it, unlike the birth certificate issue along with other bullying and scare tactics that Obama likes to use. Otherwise, our country is no better than any of the other thug lead dictatorships out there, and we will ultimately end up with the same trouble that those countries have.
