Obama’s on the verge of outright dictatorship - ALAN KEYES
WorldNetDaily ^ | June 25, 2010 | 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career, Obama has consistently declared his view that the Constitution's purposeful restraint of government power is obsolete.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.

Obama might as well do all he can. He is a one-termer and he knows it.

Yes. British PM Clement Atlee turned the UK into a socialist nation in just one term.

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.

The man is a tyrant.

His actions need to be stopped.

Obama is no surprise to Conservatives and to the far extreme left which is him and his crowd.

Only question is whether or not the brain-washed public fed only the One Party Press propaganda for decades, can wake up in time to avoid the now onset serfdom of tyranny.

I've been warning that we are now converted to communism. Before January King Obama and his communists party (formally the Democratic Party) and his communists controlled House and Senate will pass bills that will be unbelievable. He is guided to complete dictatorship from his corrupt cast of characters in his Administration. There is no way to stop this except revolution and that will not happen with at least one third of Americans are still with him.

No he doesn’t know that and we don’t either. he is playing with history. the second he got to the white house he had no intention of ever leaving it. he’s a communist, communists don’t give up power to opponents, they crush them. That is what we don’t realize. The rules have been changed by the opposition and we are still acting as if we live in an electoral democratic republic..

Don’t put the cart before the horse. They have to steal 2010 first.

Anyone who believes these criminals are going to let we the peons peacefully vote them out of power this November has no clue what we’re up against.

If Obama follows through with this, he’ll get a lot of people killed. Americans won’t put up with this again. It didn’t work last time and won’t work this time. The House needs to start impeachment proceedings.

I wish the President a long, healthy productive life.
Having said that, I had a happy dream. I was having a cup of coffee watching television. Joe Biden was being sworn in as President of the United States.......next Thursday morning.
I woke with a smile. At least Joe “likes” his country.

Obama is a totalitarian. I wonder if he’ll try to find a way to “suspend” the 2012 election. It’s teh only way that he can retain power, in all likelihood.

Only we the people, armed with the few shreds of the Constution that are left, can stop this racist, America-hating tyrant.

He will do this soon so the new citizens can register to vote.

AK is one of the rare ones who are ready to put their personal liberty and safety on the line. Too bad there aren’t enough like that anymore.
Ditto for his intellectual stature. Not enough left in this country to save it.
Others we admire, they make good points but how often do they make them at the risk of arrest?
The lights are going out in America. We’d need a hell of a lot more Alan Keyes than we have.

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?

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.

Obama always speaks with this golden curtain behind him, usually you cannot see an American flag. To me, when I see him standing in front of it he looks like a leader from the Middle East, it is very unamerican looking.

"Obama might as well do all he can. He is a one-termer and he knows it."

If he succeeds in establishing an "outright dictatorship" - as this article suggests - the term "term", won't mean a thing.

There will be no more elections; you will have no more rights except those granted by king obama.

See Chavez, Castro, Hitler, Mousilini, et al for more information.

Even if Obama completely destroyed this nation economically, he could still count on the support of a sizeable percentage of voters.

I know - I work with two of them. The lengths they will go to to justify this tyrant’s actions are breathtaking.

Like most American Jews, these people will vote democratic no matter what.

....the people who oppose this surrender of American sovereignty and liberty must raise a hue and cry like none the nation has seen before. By all reasonable and peaceful means they must communicate and confirm their determination to remove from the seats of legislative power every vestige of the party that thus sponsors the rise of an American dictator.

If 0bozo gives amnesty to 30-40 million illegals it may not be so peaceful.
