Obama: 'I am Keeping My Czars,' Even Though He is Required to Relinquish them by Law
Pundit Press ^ | 4/15/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 04/15/2011 4:50:43 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

President Obama has a potentially disturbing message for Congress: he is keeping his czars and there is nothing Congress can do about it. That's right, despite his czars being defunded in the new budget that he signed yesterday, the President has decided to "ignore" what the law says.

In a statement released to Congress, the President wrote in regard to his requirement to get rud of his czars (emphasis mine):

"The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch, and to obtain advice in furtherance of this supervisory authority. The President also has the prerogative to obtain advice that will assist him in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities, and do so not only from executive branch officials and employees outside the White House, but also from advisers within it.

"Legislative efforts that significantly impede the President's ability to exercise his supervisory and coordinating authorities or to obtain the views of the appropriate senior advisers violate the separation of powers. Therefore, the executive branch will construe [the law as to] not to abrogate these Presidential prerogatives."

In other words, even though Congress has passed a law and he signed it, he intends to ignore it. Let me repeat that: he (the President) is ignoring Congress because it "violates the separation of powers." Following that logic, no matter what the Congress passes, President Obama believes he can utterly disregard it.

The Impostor-In-Chief’s Secret Service code name is “Renegade.”

Not quite true. Impeach him now.

Impeachment is about the most civil response to his Occupation at this point. Options go steeply downhill from there.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

So, are they going to work for free or is he going to pay them out of his own pocket?

If he does this now just think how bad he will be if re-elected? He will have no restraints.

Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 645 days as of April 15, 2011.

Obama: 'I am Keeping My Czars'

Another Obama sputnik moment.

Now that Zer0 has a track record that he must run on, the Republicans need to remain unified and focused on offering the American people a clear alternative to the Obama misery.

In his latest crap speech Obama identified anyone opposed to his plans as an enemy of America. Class warfare is now the prevailing White House paradigm. Class warfare for everyone.

Time to step up Republicans and hammer this jackwagon president and his administration.

SPUTNIK-1
The Pharaoh of Lies

Ready, Fire, Aim, Barry: ''We have no reports today that my plan is the most irresponsible spending plan in our lifetimes or that it will worsening our fiscal nightmare. We also have no reports of several counties in America with home vacancy rates above 55%. And no reports of Sleepy Bite Me Biden performing financial castration on companies extracting profits from their business activities.

Don't listen when the right-wing attacks me for not having a budget to sign since 2009 when we had control of both houses. It's the Republicans who need to grow up and clean up this mess by working under Democrat/Marxist guidelines. Let me tell you, Republicans will make the US a 'Third World' nation.

My plan to balance the budget is this: More smoke, more mirrors, more QE, and increase taxes on all productive people. Even if the GOP votes no to raising the debt ceiling I'll just ignore it. I don't have time for budget games, I have czars to appoint, executive orders to sign, tee times to keep, and more important things like vacations, basketball, and fund raising dinners to attend. I'm the Campaigner In Chief for the next 19 months.

Now please go back to your business as usual, and just relax. If Sleepy Uncle Biden or I see even a flicker of a problem, we'll say something.''

------------------------------

Hope and Change.... Tragic.

Ladies and gentlemen, Obama is America's first communist president.

Indeed. Right now he’d prefer the other options to impeachment, while he’s technically the commander. I can’t see any reason to give him what he wants.

Against the law to work for free. Augmenting an appropriation and violates the anti-deficiency act. And sorry Obie, that does fall under congress.

Hell yes he does! He can "obtain advice" from whoever he damn well wants. But if he wants to pay them and give them authority, then he can damn well do so in a Constitutional manner with Congressional oversight.

Maybe he wants them too. I haven’t seen that pesky birth certificate yet. The ss# controversy is not going away. States are passing “birther laws. Maybe he wants to be impeached to rile up the base. I’m sure Hillary would be oh so ready to step in. Really, who in their right mind would poke the eye of the american people so blatantly unless there was an ulterior motive?

All that’s needed now for him to assume full dictatorial powers is a Marxist equivalent of Germany’s trumped-up Reichstag fire.

Rush is correct, this is a regime. Every polidiot with a “D” and not a few with an “R” are complicit in this sedition. My stick has worn down, I can't move that “line” back any further.

If you think he’s defensive now and lashing out pathetically, imagine the stress he’d be under when being impeached while supposed to be running for reelection. Impeachment would be making the legitimate case, or cases, against him, rather than just blowing off steam on the internet, gnashing teeth, commiserating, etc.

At the moment, you are correct. But his modus operandi has been to slowly tighten the bonds via intimidation, subversion, tin-pot despotism, Constitutional buggery, and outright puerile taunts. This sociopath is going to get his comeuppance, and the end result isn't going to be a presidential library and an executive retirement stipend.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I wonder when he’ll start campaigning for his third term.

Or maybe just do away with elections altogether.

I wonder what Moochelle's is?

Seriously, I remember reading former FBI agent Gary Alrich's book "Unlimited Access - and FBI Agent in the Clinton White House." The press went ballistic trying to discredit the book and to keep people from reading it, but it was a best seller.

In it, he talked about the permanent White House staff's reaction to repugnant Clintons. Their boorish behavior was such a contrast to the gracious Bush family that some of the staff was literally in tears of anger. I remember him relating how the Philippine stewards were so outraged by the fights, cursing, venom, hatred, envy, and slobbing behavior that the entire staff was on the urge of revolt.

Someday, I hope a White House employee tells the truth about what goes on in the Obama household. I will wager by house that it is a nightmare, and that Moochelle herself is the world's biggest harpy.

The pot is somewhere in the 210-211 degree range now, methinks.

We cannot stop Barry from soliciting advice from anyone he pleases but they will have to do it for free unless he is going to pay them out of petty cash.

It was only the other day we were calling Boehner stupid for accepting budget cuts that defunded czars that no longer existed.

So I guess the czars exist after all?????????

Let him have his little tin pot czars. The Pubs need to defund every single one of them. If Obama wants them, let him pay them from his own pocket. They should also make clear that these pinheads have no legal authority to order anyone to do anything, period.

Let 'em stand around watching for no pay. That'll have two effects. One the unserious will abandon this Administration. The serious, dedicated ones will stay. Then we'll know who they are.
