Posted on 01/10/2012 5:01:26 AM PST by scottfactor
Barack Obama must be stopped. Never in my life would I have dreamed that America would see a man in the United States presidency who is distinctly at odds with this country. Never could I have imagined that an enemy of America and the American people would be wormed into the highest position of power in the free world. At this awful point we can dispense with all niceties and undeserved respect for this man who is clearly a danger to the survival of this great nation as it was founded.
To say that he is a communist enemy of America is not only correct, but it may even be an understatement. Communism draws all power to a central government, commandeers the means of production, industry, businessall of the private sector comes under the iron-fisted, micro-managing rule of central planners. The freedom of the people is squashed. That is exactly what Obama is about, and he is already far down the road of forcing a communist utopia on America.
Anyone who can not or will not see the menace that Obama is can only be described as ignorant at best and a fellow traveler at worst. The Obama administrations egregious shredding of the Constitution goes on unchecked, so my question is who will stop Obama? Who has the courage to put this despicable man on the road to impeachment? It is well past time that he is reined in, but to our dismay, we do not see anyone in a position of power willing to give this man anything more than tepid criticism, if any criticism at all.
Last week really took the cake. The seemingly endless list of outrages committed by Obama and his buddies in the administration and Justice Department continues to grow longer by the day. And now we see more clearly than ever that this man has no regard for the limits placed on his power by the Constitution. This man is behaving as a dictator. I have a newsflash for Barack Obama. America does not have dictators, and we the people will not stand for it. But, what can we do? Ten months until November is a terribly long time to wait to get this dangerous criminal out of our White House, and Heaven help us if we have to see what he will do as a lame duck president between November and next January!
What we saw last week was one of the most flagrantly illegal moves Obama has made. He made four recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess. This man believes he can do what he likes and get away with it. As of now, I do not see how he will not get away with it, since our Congress seems to be made up of a hoard of shrinking violets. It is maddening to know that he should be impeached, but we do not see those with the power to impeach him even hinting that they will do so.
Obama illegally appointed former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray to a newly created governmental departmentas if we need yet another level of bureaucratic power over the peoplethe so-called Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. As usual with tyrannical government regimes, the name of this new bureaucracy is deceptive. It is nothing more than yet another intrusive government power grab over private sector finance-related businesses, ostensibly tasked with enforcing consumer finance laws for the benefit of the people. What it will do instead is gather even more power over the private sector into the hands of government central planners and cost private businesses even more money to be in compliance with their definition of fairness.
As Vice-President for Policy of Americans for Prosperity, Phil Kerpen, had to say in a column at Fox News,
The CFPB has the power to interfere with every consumer financial transaction in the economy. It is housed in the Federal Reserve and funded out of Fed operations, not congressional appropriations, avoiding effective congressional oversight.
All power is vested in one individual now, presumably Cordray with no board or commission. None of this was part of Elizabeth Warrens original design, which included a five-member commission that was funded and overseen by Congress. Senate Republicans have correctly called for reforms to make the new agency accountable before confirming a nominee and allowing it to begin writing rules that could have a major negative impact on the economy.
Obama doesnt care. Hes making [this] up as he goes along.
The other non-recess recess appointments are three people to the National Labor Relations Board. In a different column which was published at the Daily Caller, Phil Kerpen wrote,
Obamas tightly choreographed media blitz around the historic non-recess appointment of Richard Cordray was designed to disguise a reckless, lawless and unconstitutional action a purported 'recess appointment' while the Senate is clearly still in session into a virtuous, bold move. And to the presidents far-left supporters, surely it will be seen as just that.
But another special interest in the Democrats corner was served later in the day, more quietly. Union bosses won a big victory when the president made even more outrageous non-recess appointments to pack the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) with union lawyers. That action deserves the same scrutiny as the Cordray move, if not more.
Republicans never obstructed the two Democrats Obama installed on the NLRB. They couldnt have even if they wanted to; Obama only named them as nominees on December 15, less than three weeks before he made the move. The nominees never even filed the normal paperwork with the Senate Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions (HELP) Committee. They didnt undergo background checks. They didnt submit questionnaires. They didnt meet with a single Senate Republican.
Alan Caruba, writing at Right Face, had strong words about Obamas illegal behavior. In a column titled, Barack Machiavelli, Mr. Caruba lays it on the line as he writes,
The Founding Fathers, authors of the Constitution, were obsessed with any form of government that could become too powerful, too willing to use force to oppress citizens. They had cause. They had fought a long war against the greatest power of their age, ruled by a king with nearly absolute power. They fashioned an instrument designed to ensure that the President could not rule by edict and defused power among three branches of government.
We have a President currently running for reelection against Congress, Wall Street, Republicans, and the right of citizens to be free of an overly intrusive government.
Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution says: All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in the Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
All appointments of the President must be approved by the Senate while it is in session and the Senate, even over the Christmas and New Years vacation has remained in session, if only in a pro forma, technical manner. Every three days it has been convened to assert its powers.
Even so, President Obama has announced several 'recess' appointments, all clearly a challenge to the Senate and all clearly a tyrannical power grab. He appointed Richard Cordray as the first director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a new function that puts government between the lender and the citizen. In theory, all loans in the future will be subject to government approval. This is Communism, not Capitalism.
In addition, he appointed three members to the National Labor Relations Board, intended to arbitrate disputes between unions and corporations. None of them have appeared before a Senate committee for vetting. It was this board that demanded Boeing shut down its new factory in South Carolina, one of many 'right to work' states that empower workers with the right to determine whether they want to join a union or not.
Neither Obama, nor any president who preceded him can make appointments without the 'advice and consent' of the Senate. (Article II, Section 2). As recently as the first week of the year, referring to the Senate, Obama asserted that 'I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them.' He has no such obligation. Those are the words of an incipient tyrant.
Barack Obama is at war with the United States Constitution and the American people. It is imperative that those in power begin the process of removing Obama from the presidency. Do not tell me this can not be done. Obama is a clear and present danger to our great Republic, and his traitorous actions have shown beyond a doubt that he has no business in the highest office in our land. He belongs in prison where his criminal actions merit his presence.
Impeach Obama now!
He's not at odds with about 100 million of our citizen. The number may be larger. That's the real problem.
It’s ONLY that whatever “opposition” there is lacks balls.
With the court eunuchs running the GOP nothing will happen, though there is ample reason to at least challenge Obama’s actions if not impeach him. I fear that another milquetoast moderate like McCain will be nominated and give us not only Obama’s re-election but an end to our Republic. If Obama is re-elected not only will our country be as bankrupt as Greece, but Obama will assume dictatorial powers like Chavez has in Venazuela Our only hope at that point will be an armed rebellion to depose the tyrant.
“To say that he is a communist enemy of America is not only correct, but it may even be an understatement.”
I have to somewhat disagree with this statement.
Obama along with most of the left,are a good-old fashioned Fascists.
The louder the left scream about how conservatives are Nazi’s, the more the left projects what they really are.
Obama is lazy.
He’s not really all that talented, except for speaking from a script.
He’s not really all that smart.
And he’s got a racial chip-on-his-shoulders.
Obama is a disaster for America.
Corruption, Paybacks, Unmitigated Hatred ,Incompetence.
These are the 4 horseman of the Obama administration.
The real problem is that there are no true journalists left in this country. No one in the media dares to call him out. They are so wrapped up in their hatred of Bush and all republicans, that they can’t, or won’t, allow themselves to say anything negative about their first black president. That is wrong on so many levels. Don’t they care about the freedom and futures of their own children and grandchildren?
You know I am getting tired of this.
Yes he hates what America has stood for since its founding.
Yes he is shredding the Constitution.
Yes he is an idiot.
But he did not sneak into the White House.
He did not overthrow the previous Government with use of force.
He was voted into office by a nation filled with weak, spineless,needy, overly dependent people..... People that have no clue what the Constitution states. Have no clue on what principles this Nation was founded could hardly care less as long as they think they are getting “their fair share”
1. Was this article on the front page of the Washington Post? The Wall Street Journal? The New York Times? The Chicago Tribune? The Los Angeles Times? The Atlanta Journal-Constitution? The Dallas Morning News? The San Francisco Chronicle? The Denver Post?
2. Has this been broadcast anywhere on the msm??? On fox???
3. Has this statement appeared on any of the lib websites?
So what we have here is a simple case of "preaching to the choir".
Regardless of how much truth there is in this statement, it will never be heard or read by those who will - once again - vote in favor of keeping the stain in the oval office.
It will change no minds, convince no voters, sway no opinions.
It is - truly - the voice of one crying in the desert. Only this time - there is no "chosen one" coming along behind to confirm and trumpet the statement.
Such is the lot of the right wing here in the US. More's the pity.
Imagine there’s no....?
Your article was fine until your demand.
Ain’t no way to Impeach.
If we had majorities in both houses sure. But then, Barry wouldn’t be living large in our house would he? (rhetorical)
Barry is an incredible actor! Deserves at least an Emmy.
Other than that, he is slower than drunks on crutches and lamer than lepers.
Erh, he makes my skin crawl.
Romney is going to be the candidate our country club, cocktail, gun toting intellectuals put up against Barry.
Barry will get four more years.
People who have no avarice or even the decency of self determination....
I’ll tell you... it’s not a who, it’s a what. Term limits. At the end of his next term, he’ll move onto the speaking tour.
The populace is in a handout frame of mind.
The GOP is powerless and void of talent at the top.
You have put it together very well. But I also think he was voted in by media brain-washed guilt-ridden whiteys who felt it was the black folks turn to show what they got. Got to be fair, don't you know.
The reason he is not impeached is that the background against which his actions are played is one of deconstructivism, political selfishness, atheism, financial greed and media coverup. In that setting he looks like the Mona Lisa.
But we see him against the backdrop of The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, American prosperity and exceptionalism and the Judeo-Christian ethos. There he looks like a glorified prohibition-era gangster.
Apparently NOT the GOP...
