Climategate: Barack Obama's rule by EPA decree is a coup d'etat against Congress, made in Britain
The Telegraph ^ | 12/8/2009 | Gerald Warner

Posted on 12/08/2009 6:28:53 AM PST by markomalley

Who needs tanks on the lawn when you have the Environmental Protection Agency? Barack Obama’s use of the EPA to pressurise the Senate to pass his climate change Nuremberg Decrees shows his dictatorial mentality. He wants to override Congress, which is hostile to his climate gobbledegook because it is representative of the American electorate, and sideline the nation’s elected Senators by ruling by decree, courtesy of the EPA. This is a coup d’état.

And what is the justification for this undemocratic action? The allegedly imminent threat from “Anthropogenic Global Warming”. There is always a supposed threat, when tyrants take the stage. The President of the United States has just reduced his moral authority to the level of any Third World dictator heading a “Government of National Emergency”. Fortunately, the world’s leading democracy, which he is trying to subvert, has guarantees of liberty so deeply embedded in its Constitution that US citizens are well placed to fight back.

(snip)

Obama hates America and, increasingly, that sentiment is being reciprocated. This is a socialist, World Government putsch. Have the American people the resolution to resist it? We shall soon know.

>> US citizens are well placed to fight back.

That place begins in head and heart. If we were well placed to fight, 0bama would have been hauled out of the White House months ago and tossed on the rails for a trip to Chicago or the federal pen. Marie Antoinette too.

Let him do it. The resulting white-hot fury will ensure his rapid removal from office.

And not a moment too soon.

Yes, Biden's a complete doofus. But he's not a freedom-hating closet Muslim Sociopath.

Your post reminded me of something.

If the subject of Sarah Palin and “foreign policy” comes up with any of your lib acquaintances, you can say

“Well, Sarah Palin inherently has a distinct advantage in foreign policy over Barack Obama... she actually likes her country.”

“Have the American people the resolution to resist it? We shall soon know. “

No!

I present as evidence:

Ask people you meet about Climategate. I bet you’re likely to find barely 40% of the people you talk to are even vaguely aware of Climategate.

Ask people you meet about the EPA ruling on CO2 being harmful to humans. Ask them if they are aware, and if they are do they know the implications, (subverting Congress’ role in government, draconian regulaiton of business, shrinking an ailing economy, more business flight to China... etc.). I bet 20% of the people you talk to would even have the beginnings of a clue.

Ask people you meet about Tiger Woods’ latest troubles. I bet 90% can give you complete details about the whole mess.

We are in deep trouble.

This is exactly what it is. And he's already done it.

And the threads on FR about it had only a handful of posters - unlike the multiple heavily viewed and commented threads about an ambulance showing up at Tiger Woods' house.

Indeed we do - and we may have to show the politicians our willingness to do so.

I was pretty astounded by this piece of news. Never thought that a POTUS would govern ‘by decree’, and pass by democratically elected entities. When was the last time something like this happened?

We just recently read that during the Revolution 1/3 of Americans were royalists/statis quo, 1/3 were oblivious, and 1/3 fought for liberty.

I just don’t know where to sign up!

The first few comments following the article:

As a Brit, I am unbelievably jealous of the American Constitution. It is a work of art, giving true democracy and power to the people. Those who drafted it knew all too well how governments sour, and how totalitarianism devours. I just hope the American people will stand firm to defend it, while there is time left...

Obama has lost the plot. He has nailed his true colours to the mast of a fast sinking ship. His next illogical step? Pronounce water (vapour) as an Endangerment to Human Health. Its a greenhouse gas after all. The guy is a fruitcake. America, Wake up.

Couldn’t agree more. Obama has set the USA back a 100 years and not for the good of the people. The Democrats are falling apart. US & UK manufacturing has been killed by the severe curtailment of CO2 in such a short term. Now they are targetting the agricultural industry and consumers who eat meat or dairy produce. Obama is a socialist, the loons at the UN and Nobel Foundation are his ally. Meanwhile China says “no” to the IPCC and continues to develop at breakneck speed. China and Saudi Arabia by rejecting the IPCC full on are doing more for democracy than Brown and Obama.

Excellent article!

De-fund the EPA, you will not see this reported here

More proof Obama's alliance is with EU/UN. He needs to be challenged on this.

But what is of compelling interest on this side of the pond is the way in which the bullets to shoot down American democracy were made in Britain.

Yes, that’s right! You’ve got it: from Phil Jones, Michael Mann and the rest of the lads at the CRU, East Anglia.

I always thought that when the EU gained a consolidation of power under the Lisbon treaty that there would be a greater threat to US and the spreading of their agenda.

You have probaly seen this, but seems to have more weight now.

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. )

from:The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals from 1963

unfortunately many of the other 45 make you go hmmmm

I have a problem with the touchy-feely fighting back that’s being advocated on the Right. At some point even Christ advised that we pick up our swords and fight. When is the next Fort Sumter? These Liberals WILL NOT STOP! They only understand force, as is evidenced by the SEIU thug violence.

Yesterday, a day which will live in infamy, The Untied states was willfully and deliberately attacked by a government agency - the EPA. I hope we go to war over this dastardly deed. The heavy hand of environmental socialism is here.

It’s easy to come up with comments for threads about stupid celebrity tricks.

I read things like this and I get frustrated, hopping mad, confused and sometimes wonder why we bother. Its a constant, never ending attack on our freedom and words often fail me.

I suppose I can call my Democratic senators and tell them to just pack up their office as their services are no longer needed?

How can you own a half dozen firearms, and not own a shotgun?!? That's like bragging about your nifty tool box and not having a hammer in it. I demand that you change your screen name, so as to not defame Rummsfield, until such a time that you redress this unsatisfactory situation!

Of course we know Rummy doesn't need a shotgun, as he would just use the power of his will to make his enemy's heart stop.

It’s an excelent question. Somehow, and I’m not sure how, we need to act as a unit to kick back these advances of the left. RealID was defeated by state legislatures digging in on unfunded mandates, so the Tenth Amendment movement offers some hope. Then there’s elections. But what of the Edicts of Obama that hurt us in the short term? Litigation? There must be a beter way ...

I'm not sure this is being taught now. The more I see some of the articles, the more relevant is seems. May post as a thread.

Many of the rules apply to controlling media. The school agenda and manipulation of children is the most disturbing to me. Did you see some of the ads using children for the Copenhagen push.

It really is disturbing as you start to see the bigger picture. Never really thought much about government and politics before this. Before it seemed government was on my side and would protect our way of life.

Government has always been the enemy of liberty; this government has been obviously so since the Thirties.

Often the supposed conservatives (Nixon, e.g.) turned out to be more statist than the Dems.

There may be some qualitative difference with 0bama. He really does have a large-footprint chip on his shoulder which was not evident with his predecessors.
