Skip to comments.Obama’s on the verge of outright dictatorship - ALAN KEYES
Posted on 06/25/2010 8:07:30 AM PDT by EternalVigilance
Throughout his political career, Obama has consistently declared his view that the Constitution's purposeful restraint of government power is obsolete. ...the White House, he and his faction have signaled their intent to circumvent, undermine or simply set aside the authority of the U.S. Constitution. Both here and in postings on my blog I have repeatedly had occasion to remark upon the design for despotism that has been evident in their actions.
Now "eight Republican senators … are warning that the Obama administration is drafting a plan to 'unilaterally' issue blanket amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants as it struggles to win support in Congress for an overhaul of immigration laws." This represents the decisive step beyond derelict law enforcement. Not content merely to ignore the laws the legislature has properly and constitutionally made, Obama signals the intention to undertake unilateral executive action that alters the clear terms and intention of the established laws, entirely without the constitutionally determined consent of the people. This will be a blatant and presumptuous usurpation of legislative power. This is not just dereliction, it is lawless tyranny. It is outright dictatorship.
Constitutionally exercised, the executive power represents the force of law. Once divorced, however, from constitutional provisions for ascertaining the consent of the people, it asserts instead the law of force, the unjust rule that might makes right. In effect, just laws fall silent, and all that speaks are the government's instruments of force and intimidation, imposing rules that have no more warrant of lawfulness than the command of a terrorist over those he holds, by threat of violence, hostage to his will. The forces under the authority of the presidency become in that case a weapon, loaded and cocked, held to the head of the American people.

I agree, and he will keep pushing until there is civil war. Then he will declare war against American Citizens and use our own troops to put us down.....will the troops obey his orders????
Okay, patriots. Two (or many more, I would hope) can play at that game. If he's guilty of breaking the contract with the People, that would make the contract void and pave the way for the unilateral action of the patriot community.
If Mr. Keyes is right, isn't it time for us to put up or shut up?
>At the rate he is going, he will be a one termer all right. But his term of office will extend as long as he chooses to sit there.<
I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries too many tricks and ends up with a lead implant under his skin.
I don’t see the troops doing anything.
It sounds like we need a plan to overwhelm the system.
It is Alan Keyes and he is, well, nuts. But he is right in this case. I’m not a tinfoil hat kind of guy but I’d place a 25% chance on not having elections in November.
That would only rally the totalitarians IMO.
Your remark is fluff. Among public figures, Alan Keyes has been the most daring opponent of this Obama administration as well as addressing the Communist agenda.
Romanian term limits. It will come to that.
Obama might as well do all he can. He is a one-termer and he knows it.
The real question is how long does he think his term lasts?
Why just 8? Every single one of them need to be warning their people. Again, why 8
We tried to tell them...
Talk about a “man-caused disaster”. If Obama does this, it will rip the nation asunder, and open the floodgates of rebellion.
It will also likely end with his removal from office, along with the entire leftist/Marxist/Socialist cabal in Congress.
And, it wouldn’t stop there. The purge of leftists, liberals, and anything that even smacks of anti-Americanism would trickle down throughout government, right down to the local dog catcher.
I so hope you are right, but he tried to show this week that he will “punish” anyone who does not obey his orders!!!
2012? Rev 12:12?
woe to those on earth for he knows his time is short
Thank you for continuing to post that. Every person who loves this country needs to read it.
Name the time and place of the first meeting of THE SECOND SONS OF LIBERTY. Actually, don’t name it. Figure out some kind of code first.
If everyone was so horny for a black President- this is the one you should have elected.
