Skip to comments.Obama to bypass Congress in 2014, rule by agency decree
Posted on 01/26/2014 6:46:51 AM PST by moonshinner_09
White House officials say President Barack Obama will aggressively use his control of federal agencies to impose his progressive agenda on the economy and society throughout 2014.
Hell largely ignore GOP legislators, except to push GOP leaders to accept an amnesty for at least 12 million Democrat-leaning illegal immigrants, according to several White House officials who outlined the strategy to the Washington Post.
Washington veterans have been brought into the West Wing to emphasize an executive style of governing that aims to sidestep Congress more often, said the approving Washington Post article.
The new plan is to bring all of the government alive in a way we have never been very good at, said another official.
Well be doing that as aggressively as possible . and if we succeed, that is a big presidency, a senior administration official told the Post.
Obamas goals are more ambitious than what he had expected to get from the GOP after his 2012 reelection, an official said.
Even in the best case if the [GOPs] fever had broken and the clouds had parted we still would have only gotten maybe 40 percent of what we wanted, said the official, who echoed Obamas frequent description of the GOPs conservative beliefs as the incoherent ravings of a sick patient.
The new pen and phone strategy appears to be a more aggressive version of the post 2010 We Cant Wait strategy, in which Obama ha repeatedly promised to implement progressive policies when the GOP-led Congress refused to pass them.

In lieu of burning down the Reichstag I guess.
Washington veterans have been brought into the West Wing to emphasize an executive style of governing”
ah, the “Cesar Chavez” model of government
Looks like the lovers of Mao, Castro and Chavez are finally at their pinnacle
We’ve all seen how well dictatorship works in other countries, now we get to experience it here
Eat your peas, comrade. and smile.
“When will he be stopped ?”
Wow... To think that we as a nation have arrived at a place when the question of “When will he be stopped?” is very telling and chilling!
Well let’s examine that. Congress refuses to do its constitutional duty, so what is left. Well, except for the fact they are nothing now but a group of abject obsequious failures, the military could exercise its duty to its oath to defend the republic. Failing that, well, the last few attempts to do anything have not met with any success by the people, the last group empowered to do anything about it. So, I guess it is all just a matter of conversation now....they have let this POS do as he wanted without reeling him in, so we now must bear the consequences.
Ah yes, the ole four branches of government;
Obama is going into full dictator mode now.
It would be nice if Congress actually woke up and took this guy down a few pegs and asserted there own role.
They’re too busy grifting and selling out to the highest bidder to worry about it though.
We’ve just about lost our government.
Well, he can try...
Yes, when will "bringing government alive" like never before be stopped? Look at what is happening in Kiev (long, fantastic pictures):
At least what is put into rules by executive order and non-elected agencies can be removed the same way if we can get a conservative in 2016. If the Congressional RINOs push through amnesty along with their leftist Democrat buddies, it will be permanent.
When we successfully remove ALL of the RINOs that are camped out in Congress and not one minute before.
There is a Conservative challenger for virtually all the Quislings that are infesting the GOP “leadership”. It’s up to US to see that they win these Primary Races. It’s our DUTY and RESPONSIBILITY to make this happen.
ERIC GURR is challenging John Boehner. (Ohio)
DWAYNE STOVALL is challenging John Cornyn. (TEXAS)
MATT BEVIN is challenging Mitch McConnell. (Kentucky)
There are more. Do your due diligence and make it happen! “FOR THE CHILDREN”, of course.
There’s no way Boehner will let this happen....no wait
Probably going to be easy, with a compliant Congress and Court system. Americans don’t care. American Idol just came on.
“Wow... To think that we as a nation have arrived at a place when the question of When will he be stopped? is very telling and chilling!”
I’m in my 60s, and I never thought this would happen in my lifetime, though I always knew it was possible.
We have ceased to be a constitutional republic. We are now governed by a despotic kleptocracy. History is full of examples of what this eventually leads to, which will be very, very bad for those governing, or for those they govern. History has shown it can go either way, depending on the variables.
Get ready, my friends, because no matter which way it goes, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Well, crying didn't work for him. Maybe he can pursued Obama and Ried with this:
When the imposter starts spewing this rhetoric at the Sate of the Union, how many republicans do you think will stand up and walk out? I can think of two that might have the courage to do so.
He should be held in contempt of congress, arrested and imprisoned.
He’s a power mad dictator who has discarded all pretense of Constitutional authority.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Gee Oh Pee quislings to stop him.
What’s next, naming his dog to a judicial post?
I guess broncobama finally finished reading “Phillip Dru”
He thinks he is God.
Too bad the pussy Republicans are not holding strategy meetings discussing how to stop or bar this.
nobama will steamroller them. He’s got the cojones they don’t.
Someone needs to ask Paul Ryan why the House should FUND these agencies that bypass their authority.
So, John, when are you going to stop the pussy whining and actually DO something about this?
Less protest, more action.
So, OTrauma the Imperious will simply bypass Congress outright.
And in return, they should pass a bill he wants.
“Bypass Congress..Not a good sign at all.. When will he be stopped ?”
Not until Boehner and the Republican House get the courage to fight him, by law and in the courts.
But it’s Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan - don’t expect anything from these guys - they’re too busy pushing amnesty.
Well America voted to put a dictator back in office, choke on it.
and when it goes to crap ,who will he blame it on ?
If Congress worked for us, they could simply zero out funding for each and every Federal agency being misused in this manner. Congress can reduce the Administration to street beggars any time they want.
But since they don't actually work for us, Obama will be stopped when he gets too big for his britches and decides to act in opposition to the whims of the international banking cartel - something that despite his "progressive" mask he has never once done.
Threaten their pay and they’ll wake up.
Dictator ? I don't know where people get that idea.
When congress quits funding the government. Shut it down and send it home. Hat will help for a while. When the dictator ignores it call on the military to do their constitutional duty.
The GOP are happy patsies. They can blame everything that goes wrong on the democrats and still acquire all the power and advantages of a politician in a dramatically expanded police state.
Maybe one of his federal agencies will?.
Of course whatever he does if anything meaningful and i doubt that. Can always be stopped later. The Nwo is trying to move fast, with the front man Obama. But i have a feeling they will always fail.
Yep, just like Obama is the patsie, so is the Gop.
Uh........GOP?..........hellooooooo.......anyone home? hello, pickup! High you’ve reached a non working number and by the way even when they are working they’re really not...have a nice daty and remember to support the republican party
The congressional leadership should make it known that Congress will join parties impacted by unlawful administration legislative acts to the point of providing attorneys.
Usually teams/armies that are losing try desperate measures. This could be a sign of no confidence by “team left”. Could it be they know the house stays ‘R’ and the Senate flips in ‘14?
Since no one is interested in stopping him, I guess Obama will get his way.
Dictatorship comes to America?
