He signs bills into law and then states that he will not abide by some provisions.

He openly defies the Senate's power to approve appointments.

He now decides to give defensive missle technology to the Russians.

He (like all Dems) is calling for gutting of our military.

What is to restrain him from placing many of us in Camps?

As I said on the day of his corronation:

"Welcome to New Kenya (Africa USA) Where the law of the jungle has replace the Law of the Land"

TRAITORS!

Every day is just one more step to a societal collapse.
I am amazed that this has gotten so far out of hand.
The agents of this are deeply entrenched in the machine.
It seems that the machine will need complete dismantling to remove the corruption.
It's not going to be done with clean hands.

If the evil bastard is “re-elected” {he will do everything he can to steal the election}, I wonder.

Well, that depends on what happens in the next few months.

His charted paths to reelection:

1. election fraud

2. 3rd party scams

3. GOP implodes

He will do all he can to bring all 3 forward.

Our course of action is to beat him at the poles and then investigate and remove he and his enablers. TRAITORS ALL.

This guy's argument is based on the theory that the U.S. Constitution is still in force. I don't think it really is. No one, not the courts or congress has done anything to stop our slide into tyranny. A Coup d’état is happening right now in plain sight. I'm just waiting for the Tea Party to burn down the U.S. Capitol building.

Gutting the military means a whole lot more money available (or the continued illusion of such) to spend on buying votes. Halving defense spending means another $300B to “redistribute” in a way which will reward him more.

Common assumption is he’ll have a billion-dollar campaign war chest, and that anyone can win given sufficient money.

If just 0.01% of all new federal spending under this administration makes it back to the Obama’s pocket, that’s a billion dollars. In addition, that’s a billion dollars in small donations - spreading the wealth reaps the gratitude (paying back just one penny out of every hundred dollars) of recipients.

The Republicans made a huge mistake in raising the debt ceiling. Every time they jack it up a trillion dollars, BHO gets another $100,000,000 for re-election.

(OK, so the numbers are rough guestimates. You get the idea.)

Why put us in camps? To what end?

He and his cronies want POWER. So long as you obey the rules (however loudly you may object) and pay your taxes ("go Galt" if you like, your loss, just pay what's due) BHO will get that "redistribution" thing going faster, whereby grateful recipients "redistribute" some of that money back to him (just 0.01% will do nicely). Backroom deals with Republicans continue, buying off the leadership and any other opposition; money talks, everyone has a price, and enough money moving fast enough funds anything you want.

Not sure how he'll fare when the system collapses, though. I don't think he's trying to destroy it per se, just doesn't care what the consequences of extreme "redistribution" is and isn't worried about what happens when he runs out of other people's money. For all the rhetoric, the Tea Party doesn't have much of an endgame, at least not one that concerns him.

If hussein steals the election (there is no way he'll be re-elected, but he could steal/rig it)... I would bet you just about anything you care to name that Conservative talk radio, guys like Rush, Levin, etc. and websites like FR are gone before the midpoint of his second occupation.

Anyone seen Boehner? MIA?

West? Yep, I did mention him...at this point in our country since he represents largely the Tea Party, it’s time to risk life and limb to speak out against everything going on even if it pisses off Boehner.

But it's a "living" document. The U.S. Constitution is still in force but now it means what Barry wants it to mean. Redefine a few words here and there, ignore context and the U.S. Constitution can be contorted to allow all sorts of things like outlawing lightbulbs, Obamacare, the "Consumer Financial Protection Bureau", even recess appointments because the Senate is not at that very moment in the chamber conducting business. Coup d'état indeed. Death by a thousand cuts.

I wondered at first why Rush put so much into his HD flash dittocam. I think this is precisely the reason. It's also the reason he occasionally talks about places where he would relocate. Dollars to doughnuts he has a plan to rapidly relocate his entire operation, abandon the over-the-air broadcasts, and go to a web-only format. Hopefully he has a good security adviser who has all his bases covered.

I think the Tea Party thought they had a big win in 2010. It was a win, but it only gave control of the House.

Heck, the game was just beginning and the Tea Party pulled up the stakes and crept away into hiding. It’s success was that it was visible and out there.

Obama isn’t afraid of what isn’t showing its face and speaking out. The visuals alone, give a man a little pause.

The left is always out there and in your face. Our side, not so much.

We have now sat back through all the Dictator edicts coming from Obama weekly. They go unchecked, and many folks don’t even know how quickly they are losing their freedom.

Scary stuff. If some miracle doesn’t happen soon it will be too late.

It seems to be all riding on the election. That is, if we have a fair election or an election at all.

When is the last time you were up north in that urban wasteland of Democrat states, WI MN MI WA OR NY CN NH ME IL? It is all a complete mess wrought by years of Democrat graft and corruption, money misdirected, siphoned off, misspent and now they need more. So Detroitistan DOES actually make sense, but call it CHICAGOSTAN if that makes you happier.

Note that “shutting down” opposition press won’t be blatant. The Left has learned well how to do such things in a “one-off” manner, obfuscating the same ends in a manner which is either socially palatable or requires an eye-glazing explanation to get at the offense. For example: FR wouldn’t be shut down outright, it could be subject to enhanced taxation for excessive “fair use” quotations or hotlinking (something akin to Canada’s tax on blank CD/DVD media on the presumption illegal copies will be made and thus the tax revenue is redistributed to registered musicians), and thus rendered financially unviable; Rush could be silenced by some Cain-like scandal.

Consider how many otherwise good conservative POTUS contenders are driven out of the race by right-wingers outraged at some small but intolerable defect. With careful choreography, such could be applied to much of the Right’s leadership and forums. Agent provocateurs may arise, slandering FR, Rush, and many others with the cumulative effect of silencing - done so from within.

“For all the rhetoric, the Tea Party doesn’t have much of an endgame, at least not one that concerns him.”


It is unfortunate that the conservative message and its delivery is looked upon with such disrespect in this regard...By both sides of the political aisle...

Everyone seemed to be paniking that November 2010 was supposed to be this all or nothing election...No one seemed to understand, or speak much to, the obvious need for an effective follow-thru in November 2012...

I believe we are past the point of no return...It’ll be a collapse or continue down the socialist road to collapse as the end game...No matter what the cost to those trying to benefit from that eventuality...

Those that choose to rise from the ashes will have to decide how to get back on track after the fact...

What the progressives want is for things to continue just the way they are...A lot of gas and no go...And whatever happens in the next election does not factor too much into the eventuality that is coming down the highway with lights and sirens on...

Our current situation (socially and economically) will seem like paradise compared to that future...

Just my opinion...And I believe a lot of people are just now starting to realize what that future is going to be...

The Trotskyite Socialists are griping too:

"Claiming “serious reservations” about the law he was enacting, Obama declared that “my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of US citizens.” He allowed that such a practice would “break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.”

Obama’s pledge is as duplicitous as it is worthless. As one of the legislation’s key Democratic sponsors, Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, revealed, the Obama White House intervened directly into the legislative process to kill amendments that would have specifically prohibited the military from indefinitely imprisoning US citizens without trial. It viewed such an exemption as an unacceptable restriction on presidential power."
