Skip to comments.Is Obama Setting the Stage to Seize the Power of the Purse?
Posted on 01/11/2013 8:29:38 PM PST by Hoodat
The White House may craftily be laying the groundwork for a massive and thoroughly unconstitutional seizure of power from Congress.
Republicans are threatening not to raise the debt ceiling limit unless President Obama agrees to significant cuts in spending. And so, a move is increasingly afoot to have Obama raise it himself. Its hard to imagine that the growing clamor doesnt have the approval of the White House. And its hard to imagine a more egregious abuse of power.
There are few Constitutional principles more clear than that Congress is in charge of allotting the nations cash. . .

Nothing is past this little rat bastard radical...
With his prolific use of the Executive Order to bypass the constitution he already has control of the American Purse and everything else. The only thing that prevents his total control of the US Government is, well, nothing.
As far as I can tell, the historical and customary response to tyranny is about to activate.
The SOB is saying to WE THE PEOPLE “so whaddya gonna do ‘bout it McFly?”
The b-stard wants a fight. He wants the riots, the chaos, the burning cities, the death, and the destruction.
He wants to declare absolute power to his government.
The Constitution and it’s amendments were written for the express purpose of dealing with this very type of tyrant. Going to 5 hour course on the Constitution tomorrow as a matter of fact...; )
He is setting the stage to seize every single thing.
He is the enemy within, and no one is going to do a damn thing to stop him.
Well said, Eagle.
The usurper has gotten away with crimes and misdemeanors by the score and nobody reprimanded him in any meaningful way. Whatever protests we raise are ignored by the media, so the public never hears the incitements they need to hear.
The Republicans in the House won’t vote to impeach because they know the Senate won’t vote to convict. I say impeach him anyway, just to make a statement.
The Supreme Court? Ha! Unless Roberts “gets religion” there won’t be any help from that quarter.
Barring a military coup — more unlikely by the day with upper echelons being purged — it may indeed be up to us to right this wrong.
He is the enemy within, but without the backing of the Democrat party and their media, he would be nothing but a swaggering Chicago street agitator and Illinois state senator. He has a lot of support and protection from institutions that would normally purge such a person from even being nominated to be president.
It is apparent that no one with any power is going to stop him or even challenge him on his power grabs. It will be up to us to stop him
We have a huge challenge ahead.
We will have to trust in God and trust in our fellow Americans to set this country right again. It might take years or decades, but the process needs to begin now.
Our beloved country has gone to the dogs. Talk of confiscation of our guns. How far will they go before true blue Americans get REALLY fed up? I wonder.
10th Amendment, 2nd Amendment both can stop it.
Something will happen to ignite massive civil unrest. Mark my words.............
does a bear crap i nthe woods? Of course he is- he laready has- there’s no reason whatsoever for fuel prices to be as high as they are, energy prices to be as high as they are, taxes to be as high, and you can bet carbon taxes are coming too as that is a golden goose that will keep the pockets of the eilites in washington rolling in money
You need legislators with the gonads to pursue this avenue of redress and we have none.
I am not going make believe I know exactly what O is up to, short that he will probably whip the GOP again at this as he has always has been many steps ahead of them.
But the spending comes from congress in the CRs, at least much of it. They cant force O to sign a spending bill but he cant technically force them to pass the CR he wants either and he cant spend money that is not in law.
They could try using the debt limit arguments that Dems make as an argument why the CR cannot just be extended as is.
Resident, I may be completely crazy and likely am, but I think he is the Devil.
It will definitely be up to us to stand against him, but I do not think we are going to succeed. I think that Jesus will be the one to purge him.
[[its hard to imagine a more egregious abuse of power.]]
It’s even harder to imagien that NOONE in congress will lift a finger to stop his unconstitutional power grab-
If our elected officials are NOT willing to do the job they were hired to do, by standing up to this narcisist, and warnign him he had better NOT attempt anty such move or he will face immediate imperachement proceedures, then this country is hopelessly lost- never to recover- because we will NOT have folsk hired to position of power thgat are willing to serve we the peopel any longer-

Don’t bother- the constitution means NOTHING anymore- John Roberts of the uspreme court made damn sure of that when he refused to stop this rogue government from unconstitutionally violating our rights- ?The left has been tryign to do away with our constitution for a logn time now, and they have finally gotten up enopugh nerve to actually do so, and NOONE is stopping them from doing so- not even the supreme court- who gave him the green light to do whatever the hell he wants-
I’m 99% in agreement with you. Of the people who vote for him there are Christians who are blind and atheists who don’t believe either way. Then there are those who know exactly who he is.
[[and trust in our fellow Americans to set this country right again]]
The same Americans that voted him in for a second term hopign to get their $200 a year ‘stimulus check’ and various myriad of ‘freebies’ fro mthe government? Trust them?
A reporter asked a colored woman why she voted for him, and her rsponse was “because, I wanna get me soem of that obama money’- and hwen asked where she thought that money came from, her response was’ it’s free’
That is the America we now live in- they want ‘their slice of the pie NOW! damnit! and to hell with anyoen else or future generations- they want that ‘free obarma money’ before it all runs out-
I lsot compelte faith in this country’s ability to anyl onger do the right htign when i watched him get reelcted DESPITE the HORRIBLE things he had foisted on this country for the past 4 years-
When clinton won a secodn term, I was epressed and dissappointed in this coutnry- when I sat in disbeleif as this coutnry spoke loud and clear that they don’t care abotu our future and reelcted dear leader again- I lsot all faith in her ability to do the right thing any longer-
Beleive me, I hope to be proven wrong- but I seriosuly don’t see it happneing any time soon-
