(President Barack Obama rose to office like a Mafioso don.)
With his approval ratings below 50 percent as an election looms, Congress gridlocked over his economy-destroying budget proposal and the prospect that his signature piece of legislation Obamacare is likely to get thrown out as unConstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, President Barack Obama and his minions have ratcheted up their tried and true modus operandi: thuggery.
This has long been common practice for Obama. His career was launched from the home of a convicted terrorist. His parents, friends and key influencers were socialists and communists. It is who he is.
Obama was first elected as a U.S. Senator from Illinois only after he and chief operative David Axelrod arranged to have the sealed divorce records of Obamas opponents unsealed: first Democrat primary opponent Blair Hulls, then Republican Jack Ryans.
Polls showed Hull enjoyed a healthy lead over Obama as late as one month before the primary. But then The Chicago Tribune Alexrods former employer began publishing stories accusing Hull of violent behavior in his marriage and claiming that an ex-wife had sought a protective order during their divorce. Finally, Hull and his ex-wife agreed to have the records unsealed; and another ex-wife, their children and a number of Hulls acquaintances denied Hull was violent. But Hulls poll numbers began to tank and Obama won the primary.
In the general election Obama faced Jack Ryan, husband of actress Jeri Ryan. During a child custody dispute some years prior to the election, Jeri Ryan had claimed that Jack Ryan made her accompany him to swingers clubs in New York and Paris. Axelrod obtained leaked copies of the couples Chicago divorce records and then The Tribune sent lawyers to California to request the sealed child custody case records be unsealed. Over the objections of both Ryans, the judge released the records. Shortly thereafter, Jack Ryan withdrew from the race.
During the 2008 Democrat Presidential primary, Obama operatives intimidated Hillary Clinton supporters and engaged in improper and possibly illegal activities to win the nomination, according to a former Clinton campaign worker. Michelle Thomas told WND that she received death threats and was called a racist for opposing Obama. She also accused the Obama campaign of stealing caucuses by throwing away votes and intimidating people trying to enter the caucus locations.
Thomas also believes the Obama campaign is behind the death of Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney, who was shot in his office days before the Democratic National Convention by Timothy D. Johnson, who was then killed by police after a car chase. The day before he was shot, Gwatney and Thomas had agreed that Gwatney would find a superdelegate from the Arkansas delegation to introduce a petition to have Clintons name placed in nomination for President.
Another Clinton supporter Thomas met with about introducing the petition, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, died mysteriously the next week.
We found it quite a coincidence that Bill Gwatney was killed the day after we talked with him, Thomas told WND. And just a few days later that Tubbs Jones died suddenly of an aneurysm, after she had agreed to introduce our petition.
Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano told WND that she heard Bill Clinton say on a conference call during the 2008 primary that he believed Obama was ineligible to be President, and that he was prepared to go public with the information until Gwatney was murdered.
According to Viviano, a campaign staffer who was close to Hillary Clinton said Bill Clinton received a message after Gwatneys death: Shut up, Bill, or youre next. But Clinton, who was a friend of Gwatneys, intended to speak out anyway until he received another message: OK, its your daughter, now, well go after.
After receiving the threats directed toward Chelsea Clinton, Bill Clinton never said anything else about it, Viviano told WND.
The Obama Administration used thuggery to defeat a Texas bill that would have kicked the Transportation Security Administration out of the States airports, ignored a judges order over offshore oil drilling permits and used intimidation to call the media off the story regarding Obamas forged birth certificate and Selective Service registration form.
The Obama Justice Department is also reportedly set to sue Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz. Arpaio is investigating whether Obamas birth certificate and Selective Service registration are forgeries and is also trying to find other missing Obama documents that would prove whether Obama is a U.S. citizen.
Obamas comments on the Trayvon Martin shooting were designed to inflame an already volatile incident that already had race hucksters stoking a racial fire. His comments had the intended effect. Since then, there have been several incidents reported of blacks attacking whites in the name of Martin.
Now, with his freedom- and America-destroying Marxist agenda getting pushback from an awakening American populace, Obama is at it again. Hes taking on the Supreme Court.
During a press conference last week at the White House, Obama said:
We are confident that this will be over that this will be upheld. Im confident this will be upheld because it should be upheld. Again, thats not just my opinion. Thats the opinion of a whole lot of constitutional law professors, academics and judges Ultimately, Im confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress. I guess I would remind conservative commentators that for years what weve heard is the biggest problem on the bench is judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint. For an unelected group of people to somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law is a good example of that, and Im pretty sure this court will recognize that and not take that step With respect to health care, I actually continue to be confident that the Supreme Court will uphold the law. The reason is, in accordance to precedent out there, its constitutional.
Obama is channeling his inner FDR. As President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sought with some success to intimidate the Supreme Court after it began striking down sections of the New Deal by threatening to pack the court with more justices who would be favorable to New Deal legislation.
New Deal proponents accused the court of being obstructionist and political. Thats essentially Obamas argument. He may also be laying the groundwork to ignore the courts order. It wouldnt be first time the Obama Administration had ignored a courts order, and it wouldnt be the first time a President had done so.
In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln ignored an opinion by Chief Justice Roger Taney that Lincoln had no lawful power to suspend habeas corpus. So if Obama does ignore the Supreme Court, hell be channeling his inner Lincoln.
But even more troubling is that in saying that the Supreme Courts striking down of Obamacare would be unprecedented, Obama is just lying. Its a wonder his pants arent on fire.
As a so-called Constitutional scholar, Obama has to know that the court has overturned laws passed by a democratically elected Congress 165 times (click here and see page 201). And it doesnt matter whether the law was passed by a strong majority (although only in Obamas mind is 219-212 partisan vote a strong majority), that doesnt exempt it from judicial review.
That the Supreme Court would declare as unconstitutional congressional laws which illegally violated the Constitution was one of the benefits of the Constitution, which the Constitutions advocates used to help convince the People to ratify the Constitution, writes David Kopel in The Volokh Conspiracy. In Federalist 78, Alexander Hamilton explained why unconstitutional actions of Congress are not real laws, and why the judiciary has a duty to say so Because Hamilton was the foremost big government advocate of his time, it is especially notable that he was a leading advocate for judicial review of whether any part of the federal government had exceeded its delegated powers.
Obamas actions make clear the reasons the Founding Fathers inserted the phrase natural-born citizen into the Constitutional requirements for President. They wanted a President who was loyal to these United States and the Constitution.
But Obama sees the Constitution and the rule of law as impediments to his Marxist, America-destroying agenda. He rose to the office like a Mafioso don. His political career was born in the home of convicted terrorist Bill Ayers (Obamas mentor who also wrote Obamas biography and says he wakes up every morning thinking hes going to end capitalism and goes to bed every evening disappointed that he didnt). Obama was fed from the pulpit of the racist preacher Jeremiah Wright. And rose to prominence with the help of a complicit even sycophantic mainstream media, with which he now enjoys a carrot-and-stick relationship.
If he came to power like a don, it should come as no surprise he is governing (or ruling, according to Valerie Jarrett) like one as well.

So, how is this hope and change working out for you?
Isn’t it interesting that Obama wins an Illinois Senate race due in part, to having sealed records of his opponents unsealed? Yet, he has spent millions keeping his own records sealed. I’m hoping for some good Karma.
I’m looking forward to the day when this thug gets the justice he deserves.
The latest mugging by this thug was turning the national election tallying results over to a company in Spain ,,,, No recounts ,, no problems . . .
And the greatest trick of all; coming to power when the opposition party would allow your law breaking to continue because they are afraid of race riots if they expose your obvious fraud.
PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don’t compare him to an Italian. My husband is Italian & Obama is NO Italian!
I heard about that from Michael Savage. No need to follow American law for American voting records. No requirement to maintain local level tallies that can be shown to be impossible, such as precincts with more votes than registered voters.
