Skip to comments.Obama Completes His Trifecta
Posted on 02/25/2011 5:46:51 AM PST by livius
With a bold political announcement, President Barack Obama has completed the trifecta -- de facto coups which bring into his White House the powers and functions of the other two branches, as outlined in our Constitution.
That document assigns the legislative function to Congress, but the Executive Branch blithely and routinely co-opts that power by run-arounds and choosing to enforce or not enforce duly passed laws of the Legislature. Notable examples in the scant couple of years The One has been in office include: refusal to enforce voting laws against intimidation at the polls in Chicago, efforts to use the regulatory functions of the EPA to circumvent the specific legislation of Congress to ban cap-and-trade, refusal to enforce immigration laws, and attempts by the FCC to regulate matters banned from its jurisdiction by law.
...On the judiciary side...Obama has arrogated to himself, in the matter of DOMA, the power to declare that law unconstitutional and order his Justice Department not to contest lawsuits challenging it...

Begin impeachment proceedings forthwith....
2012 will be by hook or crook for the Messiah. Democrats will flood our primaries if possible to get the “right” candidate. Buy more ammo.
The only way seems to be at the ballot box as no one in Congress has the gonads to begin any impeachment proceedings against this thug dictator.
Perhaps his next move will be to grant Gadafi asylum here. Frankly, that would not surprise me in the least.
Next to the word dictator in the dictionary, they should put this guys ugly puss.
1) Full blown revolution
2) Divine Intervention
Number 2 is more likely since only left wing communists are willing to get in the streets and make noise. Plus, they have the press on their side.
With number one the press would be overtaken.
Leadership 'UP' Republicans. . .
Leadership 'UP' Republicans. . .
well; that would be ‘claiming’ victory, and a bump for thread/sigh
Yes, and the 'masses' are practicing their 'MO's' on the streets now. No question; they are gladly turning our Country into a Nation of 'foment' and damn the Constitution and our Laws as they do. Obama is counting on just this, for his follow-up, if necessary. He loves the unrest in the streets of Wisconcin and it's threatening promises of spreading.
Obama Power; all going as planned.
So OK. . .’Wisconsin! And yes, past time for my coffee. . .and, meantime, another bump
The Congress could control the idiot, but half of them are Democrats who are just as bad as Obama and the other half are eunuchs.
welcome to the United Soviet States of America
If Ø “wins” in 2012, this country is not just dead, but a rotting corpse.
We need more Repubs, and in Senate, for sure. So whatever happened to the 'defunding' of Obama's Czardom?
Like a lightning bolt on a golf course???
It’s true that Congress could probably stop him, although I’m not sure we have enough time to get more GOPers into the Senate before it’s too late. He’s sealing off one recourse after another.
“Arrogate” is such an apropos word when talking about how leftists see and use power over others.
“To take or claim for oneself without right; appropriate”
I think the next election will be vital, and that’s really what this Wisconsin situation is all about. There are several other states that are passing laws to rein in the public employee unions, but he has only attacked Wisconsin: why?
It’s because Wisconsin is a battleground state and he desperately needs all the money he and the Dems would get from the public employee unions there.
So while part of the Wisconsin fight is the usual socialist garbage and an attack on state’s rights, the hidden agenda is that he needs all these corrupt sources of money to make sure he gets elected in 2012 again.
That’s true. The thing that I find really disturbing is that when he started doing this, which was as soon as he was inaugurated, there was some stir about it and a fair amount of negative reaction (to his “czars,” his arrogant comments, his seizure of companies, etc.).
But now it seems that people have decided it doesn’t matter anymore and this latest outrage...which should have people out in the streets, IMHO...is barely getting any reaction.
No question. Amazing, how many thought, like surviving Jimmy Carter, 'we will insure a 'one-term' Obama.
In another world and time, perhaps. The handwriting was certainly on the wall, that times, indeed had changed - not to mention the threat - with the rise and election of Obama.
Republicans in name only are as bad as the Democrats, what we need are Conservative Republicans with courage. Something sorely lacking in today’s Congress.
