The Lawless Dictator
The Market-ticker ^ | August 24, 2013 | Karl Denninger

Posted on 08/24/2013 4:59:12 PM PDT by SatinDoll

Are we, the people, going to allow yet another unlawful military action to take place?

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel suggested Friday that the Pentagon was moving naval forces closer to Syria in preparation for a possible decision by President Obama to order military strikes.

Hagel declined to describe any specific movements of U.S. forces. He said Obama asked that the Pentagon to prepare military options for Syria and that some of those options "requires positioning our forces."

I don't seem to recall a Declaration of War by Congress. And there is certainly no exigent emergency that requires an immediate response by our military prior to the time that such a declaration could be reasonably obtained.

Yes, I know, Obama said the use of chemical munitions (if it occurred) was his "red line" months ago and now he has his schwantz in his hand, it would appear, in that he either has to act or be seen as "weak" and "feckless" (not that this would be anything new.)

But the fact remains that an offensive military strike is an act of war, and while there is a clean argument that such a strike is lawful under our Constitution when exigent circumstances exist and require immediate response, this is clearly not one of those cases.

Wake up America; we're not supposed to be a dictatorship but we're sure acting like we are one, and both our Congress and our people appear to be bowing before the King.

A great many people in this nation recognize that BHO2 has become a dictator, and Congress is doing nothing to stop him.

So, when are we, the American people, going to do something about this?

Under the undocumented Moslem Indonesian impostor,
the US gov’t and the US Pentagon support al Qaeda,
protect al Qaeda, arm al Qaeda with WMD, SAM and MANPADs,
leave the borders open for al Qaeda, and
make Americans their enemy using the IRS, NSA, and
even genital inspections by the TSA.

America is lawless and wide open to its Enemy
as the US Congress remains dazed, drunk, whoring,
violating its Oath, and making ITSELF immune from law.

Hasn’t Russia already beefed up it’s Naval presence in Syria?

US moving in Naval forces may not be a good idea.

the timing of his “intervention” is telling....he has supported al quida from the Iranian people uprising and he supported Iran’s theocracy.

He supports Assad.

He overthrew Mubarak and leaves Gen Al Sisi to wing it.

He refused to protect Iraq and let Al quida take it over.

I am disgusted and feel so helpless.

Smells like a quagmire to me.

As for doing something to stop BHO I don’t think we have the will to stop him. We’re terrified of being politically incorrect and being called names and too many people are convinced that we can fix all of the nation’s problems at the ballot box.

FWIW, the system is irreparably broken and our politicians are so corrupt that trying to fix it at the ballot box is no longer an option.

Which means we are stalemated and will continue to watch our country be taken down by the communist, Kenyan, muslim Fraud-in-Chief!!

As a military mother, wife, daughter and granddaughter, WTH do they think they can do. Send in cruise missiles, kill civilians and then what. The only thing that would perhaps work would be boots on the ground and separate the protagonists, if you could even figure out who was who. We don’t have any boots left to put on the ground. The military is exhausted and is being destroyed by the cuts and social experimentation. Bring all the military home from these God forsaken places.

A quagmire is just mud. This has all the makings of a full blown pit of crap otherwise known as a cesspool.

This just adds more mess to the fracas. Did the rebels kill their own people with their own homemade chemical weapons?

How far will obastard go to support a jihad with our own military? That is what he is doing you know.

Congress is doing nothing to stop him.

Mel Brooks said it best, "We've got to protect our phoney baloney jobs! Harumph! Harumph!"

This is grounds for impeachment if he goes to war, and we need to put the pressure on Congress over this. Russia is serious about Syria, and Obama could get us involved in a WWI style escalation that nobody except he and McCain want.

The people no longer have any control of their government. Those who lust for power have finally been able to put all the pieces into play and they now have full control of the federal government of the United States, with the knowing help of the "news" media, of course.

Democrats, whose sole purpose for getting elected to national office is unbridled power, now have their cronies in all the little places throughout the various governmental agencies doing what useful idiots are used for: thinking they're working for a greater good when in reality they are simply being used for another's quest for more power.

It's going to be an interesting next few years, especially 2016, but I feel mostly sorrow for my children, who undoubtedly will be little more than slaves to the behemoth federal government being created by King Zero and his lackey monkeys. It should be a real eye-opener for those liberals who have worked to create what they think will be a "society", when they find themselves little more than the normal "useful idiots".

WTH do they think they can do.

It seems that the Syrian government has found that the rebels have been creating their own gas bombs.

And we are inching towards Syria, why?

This has the makings of it. It being WWIII.

Let’s see. On the one hand we have the Baath party in power in Syria since 1966. The same party in cahoots with the Russians for a long long time. The same party in various states of power in: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan, Mauritania, Tunisia and of course, the perennial favorite, Yemen. I guess this doesn’t mean they aren’t muzzies but they don’t seem to hold much with the muzzie brotherhood? It is all so confusing isn’t it?

On the other side we have the Syrian opposition in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood. The muzzie in the white huts friends. Included in the mess of supporters are Turkey and Libya.

So what happens next? One scenario is that the muzzie in the white hut sends U.S. troops in to support his personal jihad and as a result starts at least a regional conflict with the Russians who seem to be drifting in the direction of the trappings of principal of a Christian nation.

All the while the U.S. drifts further and further into abyss of moral depravity, division, poverty, crushing debt and ruin all encouraged by the muzzie in the white hut. He has reached the pinnacle of power and he is determined to do what he wants to do. If he dies for it, in true muzzie style, he dies for the cause and gets his 72 virgins. A much better deal than the got with moochie.

I figure.

“Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will destroy with the breath of his mouth, rendering him powerless by the manifestation of his coming” 2 Thessalonians 2:8

A “lawless one” is coming at the time of the end that will have problems with both the king of the north (Syria and/or Russia by most accounts) and with the king of the south, (Egypt)

In between having deceitful dealings with Israel and those that deny the covenant, (meaning dividing restored physical Israel)

Its all in Daniel 11,

Personally I’ve always seen this unclean spirit president thing as a type of Belshazzar of Babylon, but if it keeps going and causes the division of Judea and Jerusalem, he really will be the lawless one revealed,

someone’s has to play that puppet role someday,

Joseph Stalin got a better deal,

REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!

It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
_______________________

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.

Speaker Boehner’s job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obama’care’ is ABOLISHED, and keep it shut down for however long it takes.

Obama will continue to ruin America as long as Boehner is Speaker of the US House of Represenatives.

Four + years of Boehner has proven Boehner to be unfit to combat Tyrant Obama.

It is now up to the Members of the House to replace Boehner so that the new Speaker can shut down the non-essential parts of the US Federal Government ASAP in order to ABOLISH Obama’care.’

Yes and remember that 3-4 million conservatives stayed home from voting for anyojne but Obama, Had they voted for anyone but Obama, Obama would have lost in the presidential election. He would have lost in a landslide that would have embarrassed Carter.

But no the stayed home waiting for their fairy prince to run for the conservatives or to just stay home. Those 4 million fools are why we have Obama as our president until 2016. By staying home they DID VOTE FOR OBAMA!

Anyone would have been better than Obama... any doubters?

Go ahead. Step off the porch. Stick that neck out. I did, for many years, in defense of the noble cause. All to no effect as that related to “The Big Picture”. Was it worth the effort? Nope. Here we are.

Look at those around you on any given day. Do they even remotely appear to be ready to step off the porch with you? When they do get back to me. You know where to find me. I’ll be on my porch having hot coffee and smoking a cigarette while enjoying recordings of Sinatra’s best.

Obama is the singular key to our current woes, not Boehner. Boehner is terrible but he is not the main reason for our woes. That is Obama.

See the next post but always remember that about 2-4 million conservative voters did not vote in the presidential election. Those 2-4 million voters would have caused Obama to loose the presidential election. By not voting they ensured they DID vote.. but for OBAMA.

Always remember that.. and think of it when Obama gets to appoint 2 or 3 more liberals to SCOTUS, which it the bonus prize the liberals got when they coronated Obama. Again remember that Boehner did not do it.. 2 - 4 million conservatives did vote for our current situation.

Elections mean things... one of those is the ability to vote out the bad people.

I feel much the same way,

I used to pray for this nation, now I only pray that believers will wake up to the truth,

The people knew what this thing was and willingly reelected it, a fly infested unclean spirit,

They wanted Saul, it looked like a king, the images that move and speak (the TV and MSM) told them so, the MSM placed a halo around its head every chance they got to show you it was their messiah,

if the people should wake up one day and their republic is lost and they find themselves in bondage, then it was their choice, and it will be to their children to reclaim what was given up by this ignorant, vulgar, pierced and tatted up shallow, adulterous pleasure seeking generation, barely subsisting on a reserve currency $ credit lie and government EBT food stamps,

that is, if we should have the time, and i suspect we do not,

The people don’t care. They’ve got their break and circuses on 256 satellite channels. That’s one reason they didn’t vote him out. Another one is they’ve been intimidated by the race industry and shamed into approving this Magic Negro of the suffering victim class, or at the very least not disapproving.
