Congressman Calls for Executive Action to Suppress Congressional Rebellion
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 15 Oct 2011 | John Semmens

Posted on 10/15/2011 9:28:30 AM PDT by John Semmens

Contending that Congress’ failure to enact President Obama’s “Jobs Bill” amounts to “disloyalty to the duly authorized ruler of this nation,” Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill) called for “extraordinary measures to restore orderly compliance with the steps the President deems necessary for the country.”

“No one can argue that these are not critical times for America,” Jackson said. “The time for disputation has passed. It is now time for action. Since Congress will not obey, the President must take the actions he thinks appropriate by using his executive powers unilaterally.”

Jackson sought to draw parallels with the secession crisis of 1861. “Just as Lincoln refused to tolerate the disobedience of the southern states, so too, must President Obama stand firm against the enemies of progressive reform.” Lincoln’s efforts to deal with secession included raising an army without Congressional approval, arresting opponents of his policies, and suppressing newspapers that editorialized against his Administration.

The specific action that Jackson urged Obama to take on the jobs issue was for the President to order that the 15 million who are unemployed be immediately hired by the federal government. The Congressman estimated that at a salary of $40,000/year, this would cost only $600 billion/year.

“The action needed is so simple and affordable that opposition can only stem from seditious motives,” Jackson insisted. Jackson dismissed objections that there would be no meaningful work for this new army of federal employees. “There’s certainly lots of things they could be doing to improve this country. They could pick up the litter that uglifies our streets and highways. They could provide domestic services like cooking and cleaning our homes. They could work in the fields planting, tending, and harvesting our crops. But even if they did nothing we’d still be injecting $600 billion of stimulus into the economy.”

Jackson wasn’t alone in casting Congressional refusal to pass the President’s jobs bill in stark terms. Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA) called the GOP’s opposition “unpatriotic.” “They’re not concerned with our country’s economic well-being,” Sanchez maintained. “Their only goal is to defeat President Obama. They are enemies of America. The President should act accordingly.”

LOL! Somebody needs to send Junior or Loretta a pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution. Better yet, how ‘bout an audio CD version since it’s obvious that neither of these bozos can read.

I can't believe he is stupid enough to think that Congress has to "obey" a President. He must of slept through Civics class.

What is scary is the probability that John’s SATIRE is actually reality in the liberal’s mind, even though it doesn’t reflect reality in their actual words/actions.

That’s why people here keep getting pwned by these articles.

A satire that isn't a satire. I watched the video of Jackson saying these things. That's the source's poignant point: the truth isn't believable.

duly authorized ruler of this nation

From News Busters Nov.10, 2008:

Valerie Jarrett, appeared on Meet the Press this weekend and used, shall we say, an interesting word to described what she thinks Barack Obama will be doing in January when he's officially sworn into office. She told Tom Brokaw that Obama will be ready to "rule" on day one.(empahasis added)

The president doesn't 'rule', the people rule. The president serves. It's obvious this sob and his cult think otherwise.

“The time for disputation has passed.”

Sounds like: The science is settled; the debate is over.

Create a crisis; kill the Constitution. This is the face of the democrat party. That, and the guy taking a dump on a police car in NYC.

There needs to be consequences (immediate removal from office) for any politician who speaks against and or tries to legislate against their oath of Upholding and Defending the Constitution.

“disloyalty to the duly authorized ruler of this nation,”

If satire, it is satire based on and identical with reality. It is treason, indeed.

We fought a war once against tyrants who would oppress us. We labelled them our “enemies.” We won that war, and now We the People “rule” ourselves, electing and employing “public servants” to help us in ways enumerated in our Constitution.

Many of us have taken an oath to defend against “enemies foreign and domestic.” ‘Nough said.

I know this is satire, but it is based in part on Jackson’s LUDICROUS suggestion that we hire the unemployed at $40K per year.

Rep. Jackson, SIR, if we were to do what you suggested, how long do you think it would take for the two-thirds of workers with earnings below that level to dump their jobs so they can get in on the gravy train? http://politicalcalculations.blogspot.com/2010/12/whats-your-us-income-ranking.html

Since Congress is so eager to impose unwanted mandates such as Obamacare on the American people, perhaps the American people (read: Congress’s employer) should impose an Econ 101 mandate on all members of Congress. It might spare us from some of these lunatic suggestions.
