CNN Lies About Sheriff’s Having to Enforce Executive Orders

Discussing gun control, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Friday told a Utah sheriff that if Barack Obama issues an executive order, that order is the law and the sheriff must obey…

The Supreme Court held in Printz v. U.S. in 1997 that the Tenth Amendment forbids the federal government from ever ordering any state or local official to carry out a federal program.

      Problem is, Obama thinks he is king. But worse, Obama is deploying the tactics of the old Soviet union to get what he wants.

    If he is in the army reserves, AND obama activates him, then the executive order would apply to him. But he wouldn’t be sheriff if he was activated into the reserves so he still couldn’t enforce the orders as sheriff, and he couldn’t enforce them as the army on US soil. Sucks to be a toothless king sometimes. Has CNN interviewed the sheriff in Milwaukee who put out the PSA telling people to get a gun and learn how to use it. There is one that is enforcing obamas executive order to issue public service announcements on gun safety, yet the left is even more upset he follows the orders than at the ones who say they wont.
