Posted on 02/14/2010 8:23:58 AM PST by callisto
President Obama decided its time to push the dictator button and tell the Legislature theyre expendable. Using the Old Gray Lady for softball coverage, the White House announced the President is prepared to use Executive fiat to advance his energy, environmental and fiscal policies. But what good is signing your agenda into law if you dont have radicals to implement it? Oh yeah, hell also be making recess appointments. Its good to be King!
On Friday White House chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel announced the President is preparing, to get the job done. Translation: Obama is tired of waiting for his agenda to be passed through Constitutional means. Signaling things to come, former campaign and current White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer gave notice, In 2010, executive actions will play a key role in advancing the agenda.

Apprently Zero is becoming aware that the dems will not be the majority party and is preparing his end runs around We the People.
Talk about misuse of power. that is all that he seems to be capable of.
It makes me sick and scared to death.
Time to take out the trash....(no recyclables here...green boy.)
Nancy and Harry are being told to sit down and shutup and by the way I, EL SURPREMO, don’t need no stinking Congress.
Well, the oath I took says, “support and DEFEND the constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC”
Zero’s going gangsta on America.
When are people going to WAKE UP?
It's his czars and other disturbed people scheming and implementing our demise. None of this is Constitutional.
He should expect someone to return the favor ... just an observation
Hopefully the Republicans have been gearing up for this and are prepared to tie him up in the courts.
Here comes Barak Muggabe folks.
He is seeing the writing on the wall. When Congress goes back to the Pubies, his days will be numbered. His domestic agenda will be in tatters plus he will be set up for Impeachment and removal. Congress still controls the purse strings to the Government.
He’ll behave just like another General Idi Armin.
“.....When are people going to WAKE UP?....”
I think it has already starting. If liberal, blue state Mass. can elect a republican for the senate, you can tell that people are really beginning to pay attention. If this is happening in Mass., you can imagine what is happening in the rest of the country.
Time for states to invoke the 10th, file lawsuits, question the legitimacy of Hussein in office, etc.
Sure is taking time for America to realize they have a King. King Obama is a communists Muslim radical dictator. Maybe one day the world will see this childlike dictator for what he is.
Wish I could believe that. Obummer, and his flunkies in all branches of government who are circumventing the law, won’t even obey the law to release public information documents. What about the fact he was illegally certified to be eligible to run for the Presidency, where is his original birth certificate, where are any of his records, and just look at the felons he surrounds himself with and appoints as “czars” to avoid having to face Congress. We are in the throes of a Dictatorship and every day it keeps piling on.

You have to have an army to support a coup d’etat and he dopes not have their support.
Scared? Not me. Real Americans always have a way to correct a problem. Not too long from now this nitwit will be a lame duck. He can sign all the paper he wants and one by one his rotten core of radical communists will be tried for treason.
There is no such certification.
Probably should be, but there isn't.
That was just a matter of time. Screw Congress, the Senate, and especially the American people.
No suprise here, it is what tyrants do.
“A people unwilling to use EXTREME VIOLENT force to secure or obtain their liberty DESERVES the TYRANTS that rule them.” Thomas Jefferson.
In a very real and literal sense.

Their “agenda” is Totalitarian rule over the free American people. Sorry Chairman 0bama, but that’s NOT acceptable.
Americans better wake the hell up......and quick.
WE NEED TO IMPEACH THIS PHONEY AND THROW OUT EVERY ONE OF HIS COMMIE BUDDIES ALONG WITH HIM. GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!
It’s not that hard to imagine a perfect storm of strong political head winds, embarrasing personal revelations, and disastrous policies bringing Obama to the verge of impeachment. Would he, like Nixon, then opt to exit “on his own terms” or drag the country through a constitutional crisis?
We can hope for more than that.
Great photo of the man who should be our President!
The Republican Congress along with the scared Democrats who are left in 2010, can override a presidential Veto, and shove any Bill down the Presidents throat, multiple times if need be. Obama doesn't wanna go there, but I think he needs to Listen more.
Obama can't Hear the American People, but if he starts ignoring Congress, they will show him what the American people want, and 2/3 Majority of both houses will vote accordingly.
Hey, Harvard Grad, can you hear us yet ? !
There are few surviving sources on Caligula's reign, and although he is described as a noble and moderate ruler during the first two years of his rule, after this the sources focus upon his cruelty, extravagance, and sexual perversity, presenting him as an insane tyrant.
Article II: Section 4 states:
The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on impeachement for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes & Misdemeanors.
Article III: Section 3 states: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be conviced of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
With that said, charges of Treason must be filed....impeachment would only follow. WHERE are our Brilliant Constitutional Attorneys? Why has this Marxist not been at least charged with Treason. Yes I know the ‘balance’ of Congress however, they are already balking. (This reply will be posted to another thread as well regarding ‘bowing to Islamists’
I am waiting for the Royal Executive Hissyfit. Let the dummocrats see who they really voted for.
President Obama decided its time to push the dictator button and tell the Legislature theyre expendable.I sure hope Barry doesn't get writers cramp for nothing...
Problem 1 for Barry: An EO only affects the way a department in the executive branch functions, i.e: Where the POTUS is the ultimate boss (He can order TSA Workers to Wear Pink Uniforms). Unless said EO is further acted upon by Congress and is passed into law.So Barry can write all he wants. But if that EO is not directed to a Dept in the Executive Branch it carries the legal authority of an essay written by Eric Cartman. Otherwise a POTUS, any POTUS, could issue an EO disbanding Congress or the Federal Court system, including SCOTUS.
Problem 2 for Barry: Given the insurrection occurring by the blue dog RATs against Barry any Power Grab EO ain't gonna pass into law.
Problem 3 for Barry: An ILLEGAL EO written by Barry, like an attempt to bypass Congress, or written regarding a Dept not under the Executive Branch can be taken directly to SCOTUS by a member of Congress (Senator or Rep sues Obama). Mitch McConnell did this with 'McInsane-Findgold' (sic).
Problem 4 for Barry: Two Words -- Nicolae Ceauşescu.
So one way or another, the Kenyan is gonna learn that the US Constitution really means what it says. Especially the part about the powers granted to the POTUS not being absolute
The good thing about "executive actions" is that they can easily be undone by new "executive actions" as soon as America flushes this foul communist turd Ubanga down the toilet.
Obama is not Nixon, he is worse. Obama is a devout Marsist. Nixon was just a political thug. Obama will find a way to dissolve the Constitution through some kind of crisis, institute martial law, and give Congress a permanent vacation somewhere in a desert tent camp along with their family, extended family, aides and assistants.
They’re a little slow in the house and senate. Once he started adding unvetted czars and various commissions, that might have been the better time to slap him down.
“Obama is not Nixon, he is worse.”
Totally agree. I wasn’t making a character comparison between the two, just using Nixon as a reference point for purposes of discussing the resignation option.
And if he does that, Friend, stand by for a mass march on Washington filled with ARMED & ANGRY Americans with one express purpose..and I think you can guess what that would be. Think: Benito Mussolini.
Granted, he might call on his Black Panther brothers and Muslim Brotherhood to defend him, but that can be easily taken care of.
If all it is is recess appointments, he’s entitled to do that - as evil as his choices are.
Zero can’t use the EOs for this. The biggy is funding. He can attempt to implement, but without funding it’s a no-go.
~And these dem congresscritters who vote on funding know the jobs killing programs Zero and his Marxist buddies want to implement will kill jobs - theirs included.
