“Just because it looks like law and has the color of law doesn’t always mean that it is the law!”
Yesterday, during a Second Amendment rally, I had the opportunity to take to the steps to preach on the capital steps in Michigan (2 Timothy 4:2).
During this rally, I had overheard one of the speakers talking about the state governor and her 186 executive orders. What bothered me the most about these 186 executive orders that were being brought to our attention was the fact that the people actually believed that she had the constitutional right in doing so (Ephesians 4:14).
I am here to tell you that she does not have the right to operate outside of her scope of authority.
As they say, “If they can getting you asking the wrongs questions, they do not need to give you the right answers,” and that is precisely what is being played out here and not just with this governor. This also applies to all that are incumbent, including the president of the United States, who is the executive.
EXEC’UTIVE, adjective egzec’utive Hence, in government, executive is used in distinction from legislative and judicial.
The body that deliberates and enacts laws, is legislative; the body that judges, or applies the laws to particular cases, is judicial; the body or person who carries the laws into effect, or superintends the enforcement of them, is executive
Executive orders must be deliberated and enacted by law-not outside of law.
Having known how many of these executive orders have evolved outside of their scope of authority, I thought it my duty and my obligation before God and man (1 John 5:2) to explain how this came about.
United States presidents issue executive orders to help officers and agencies of the executive branch manage the operations within the federal government itself.
Executive orders have the full force of law (Enumerated laws found within the United States Constitution) when they take authority from a legislative power which grants its power directly to the Executive by the Constitution or are made pursuant to Acts of Congress (The representatives of the American people) that explicitly delegate to the president some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation).
Like both legislative statutes and regulations promulgated by government agencies, executive orders are subject to judicial review, not by those who want to interpret what common sense laws state nor are judges there to judge the standard by which they are judged by, and may be struck down if deemed by the courts to be unsupported by statute or the Constitution.
There is NO constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders.
The term executive power (Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution) refers to the title of president as the executive. He is instructed therein by the declaration to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” made in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5 or face impeachment.
Most executive orders use these constitutional reasonings as the authorization allowing for their issuance to be justified as part of the President’s sworn duties, the intent being to help direct officers of the U.S. Executive to carry out their delegated duties, as well as the normal operations of the federal government: the consequence of failing to comply possibly being the removal from office.
An executive order of the president must find support in the Constitution, either in a clause granting the president specific power or by a delegation of power by Congress to the president.
Therefore, if the executive order is not congruent with the United States Constitution, then it is simply “null and void,” period. There is no judicial interpretation, no compromise nor debate. Why? It is because neither this nor any other administration has the power nor the authority to act outside of their delegated scope of authority.
So, in other words, and in many cases, they brought forth a play on words with the use of “executive.”
Executive defines the identity, the role, the work detail; nothing more and nothing less.
But in order to create out of what does not exist, they had to add superhuman (Deified) powers to the word like that of an ordinary man transitioning him into a superhero with extraordinary powers (Which others cannot do, but they can) which do not exist in the US Constitution.
At the end of the day, the impression that executive orders give is that the president or governors can act outside of their scope authority, which they cannot constitutionally justify.
However, if they are constitutionally un-justified, which many are and survive their treason against the people that they are overreaching and usurping, it is only because the people believe them to be more powerful than they really are (Isaiah 14:13-14).
