Obama to impose cap and trade unilaterally through EPA, executive order
Fox News Channel | 12/7/09

Posted on 12/07/2009 10:09:39 AM PST by pabianice

Per Fox. Obama will impose cap and trade through the EPA and executive order. White House spokesman quoted as saying that since the Senate seems unwilling to pass cap and trade, Obama is willing to do so by himself to "address the global warming crisis." This is timed to the Copenhagen fiasco of radical Warmists.

I am sure the Senate will stand-up to him. /S

March on Washington?

Better course is to setup mortars and guns in Arlington Heights. Marching on the mall is unproductive

What the hell is going on with my country?!!!!!

Today, our economy -- our country! -- has just been taken over by unelected socialist bureaucrats -- and by an insidious backdoor maneuver.

I'm so irate right now I'm shaking!

The so called “democrats” ha liars, are really just “communists”. They do not even bother to hide their evil agenda anymore.

The people who gave these scum all the power deserve the misery this bunch will inflict upon them. They may be too stupid to know it yet, but they will soon.

Now you know why Zero seems to so admire Hugo Chavez and others of his ilk. He fancies himself America's dictator. Our prez is already dooming himself to a one-term presidency; such a brazenly unconstitutional attempt would all but guarantee that he wouldn't even last a full term. Impeachment votes would likely result in the GOP controlled House that such a move would almost assure after the 2010 elections, and even a Senate narrowly controlled by the dems might vote to impeach. Even if they are dems, no one is more jealous of their prerogatives that the bulls in the Senate.

They would have to hurry to complete impeachment, however, before Texas and a number of other states seceded.

Obama is a moron, but I really don't think he's that stupid.

I agree, at least, mainly “our side” maintains its guns. If Obama goes this route on global warming, why would he not enter into similar agreements on gun ownership?

Aside from DeMint, Bachmann and precious few others, where the hell is the GOP?

Do you honestly think our military would put up with that. Did you see the hostile looks on the faces of many of the West Point cadets? I know a few military people; the ones I know uniformly despise our maximum leader (although I know few black military personnel, and don't know where they would fall in such a dispute).

We might see a quick repeat to the Honduras actions. This in fact may be why Zero was so quick to condemn Honduras' deposing of their leftist dictator wanna be when he overstepped his constitutional powers.

"It’s time for one more march on Washington.

It's going to take more than a "march" my friend, it's going to take an "occupation" of Washington, at the very least.

We are being taken over; something we thought could never happen in America, a coup is in progress in Washington, and if it gets a good foothold, those anticipated "cure-all" elections of 2010 won't make any difference, they'll either be totally rigged, or cancelled altogether.

The best time to cure an infection, is while it's still small...it's also the best time to put out a fire.

Eagles Up.

Those that are actually *here*, sure.

Why else would he be sending so many of them *away* at such a convenient time?

There is also the problem of *many* foreign troops stationed here.

Their allegiance to the US populace is non-existent.

The Democrats will NEVER, I say NEVER, vote for impeachment. NEVER!

Obama is a fellow COMMUNIST! There I said it. Look it up and compare to this THUGS history and current actions. COMMUNIST!!!

Please get the thought of impeachment out of your head. We are way beyond a fail safe strategy.

It’s no longer a paperback book plot. Our economy will be crushed, at least what we know as the private sector. When businesses fail, per the GM model, ownership will merely be handed to the unions. Gov’t healthcare will expand the public payroll by many millions. We’re on the trajectory where Obama will make Hugo look like Hayek. This will not have a happy ending, I fear.

It had better be the final march. Obama is a Communist dictator.

King Obama has spoken. Three branches of government, who needs them?

By the way, can a President order an increase in taxes through Executive Order?

Could this be the tipping point 0bama is seeking? His mad grab for power would be well advanced with a fiasco like this. Next step would be martial law in large urban areas. And, then, we all head down the slippery slope to socialism.

Taxes rates are established by laws passed by congress and signed by the Pres. Hell, he may be able to have that done, but it’s much more insidious what can be done by his regulators. One of my worst fears is whether after a financial collapse, the ChiComs offer to bail us out... in return for our public lands and nuke arsenal. BTW, I think this is exactly what we should have done to the USSR when they fell and needed financial assistance. But we’re too gracious to make such an offer.

No, only congress has the authority to tax, according to the Constitution. However, the Constitution doesn’t mean a whole hell of a lot anymore.
