Posted on 01/26/2014 9:59:50 AM PST by lbryce
A well-respected constitutional expert is blasting President Obamas unprecedented abuse of powers, and has decribed him as worse than Richard Nixon. He even goes so far as to call him the most un-American president in the history of the nation.
The words of an arch-conservative? Hardly. The warnings of a liberal icon.
Nat Hentoff, historian, novelist and syndicated columnist, is not a fan of Barack Obama. In fact, Hentoff says its time to consider impeachment citing Obamas tendency to resort to executive orders or actions whenever his proposals are rejected by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
Apparently he doesnt give one damn about the separation of power. Never before in our history has a president done these things.
The executive power abuse issue most recently made the headlines last week when Obama said: Ive got a pen
and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions.

What power on Earth has managed to render the once dynamic, powerful entity aka the 'Grand Old Party' into a bunch of pusillanimous impotent, mute, chicken-s**t, political eunuchs, scared to even utter the "I" word, have this vacuous entity of no portfolio remain in complete control of the agenda in defiance of every rule of law, governmental institution flaunted to egregious impunity,apathy?
It's quite bizarre, inexplicable.
I’m happy to see that SOMEONE has awakened!
Now, if we could only get CONGRESS out of the COMA that they are in.......
Yes, it is inexplicable.
As for Natsie H., well, he just got out-liberaled and is in a snit about it. Too bad, too late.
Congress only cares about their personal wealth. They know exactly what they are doing. They don’t want to upset the apple cart.
The Republican party hasn’t existed since 1989 when Reagan left office. My theory is right after that, the libs started disguising themselves as Repubs and slowly took over the whole party whereas today it’s a party that is completely castrated. So what we got now is a Marxist run amok, completely unopposed running the country under Marxism and soft tyranny soon to be hard tyranny. This is exactly why guns sales have gone through the roof, and I don’t care what anyone says: There is not a chance in hell this Kenyan piece of pig vomit won that last election legitimately. These two main political parties working in unison usurped the election process and appointed him Monarch.
Obama’s program is actually one of extinction for the human race, starting here I guess. His answer to falling birth rates and the demographic inversion? More abortion and gay marriage. Illness? cripple the medical sector. Challenge of Chinese military technology? disarm. Economic doldrums ? Dis-incentivize work. If he were a space alien working to wipe out the human race so that extra-terrestrials could take over, he could hardly do better.
Those in Congress that do, have joined with Traitorobama in his treason.
If I’m not mistaken, Hentoff is pro-life and pro-gun. Not sure why he is otherwise a liberal.
He's gonna make Bohner cry again.
Clever, very clever. :-)
Nat Hentoff a liberal icon and Constitutional expert? Who knew? Bet he didn’t know himself, an old jazz writer and promoter.
You’re not mistaken. Hentoff has in recent years published conservative op-eds in the WSJ among other places.
Barry and his puppetmaster, Valerie Jarrett like to whine a lot about “the mess” left to them by George Bush. The damage these two pixies are causing to America right now is going to take generations to repair. Things are going to get a lot worse before they ever start getting better in his country.
The Beltway Republican Party has become irrelevant. At least to this conservative former Republican. It is now moribund. Its embrace of “comprehensive immigration reform” is the final nail in its coffin.
The Beltway Republicans have been seduced by the MSM and big business $$. They are alien to me and many like me. Why bother with them. The lesser of two evils is still evil.
Time for a Conservative party.
Time for Obama to be impeached.
I wish I could do something about the current depressing state of America, but it seems beyond my control.
Depressed more and more each day.
Hentoff is pro- life. He’s an odd duck, but he has some integrity.
Hah....the GOP would rather bow and scrape to their master Obama than fight.
GOP is now the party of servants.
If you impeach him you have to impeach every one of the one the Hill.
That’s what the WH is going to look like when the Kenyan leaves..if he leaves. Remember when the Rapist in Chief Clinton left and they found everything destroyed and even rumors of human sh*t left on the desk? So you can imagine what a terror supporting hardcore Marxist will do, they’ll probably blow the place up.
He was writing “progressive” articles for Playboy at least back in the 70s, maybe the 60s.
I am in total agreement.
It is in fact bizarre, insane, and yet this country continues down this path.
Apathy and ignorance is being held up and defended as a virtue.
The left as soo completely co-opted virtually every aspect of society into thinking that making a judgement call is a form of discrimination.
We are not allowed to call someone out for being stupid, ignorant, crude, hypocritical or degenerate.
It’s become relative.
We are living in a world that embraces uncertainty.
Hillary already has her transition team (Posdesta) on site in the WH. Fear not.
“Now, if we could only get CONGRESS out of the COMA that they are in.......”
If we can’t then it’s down to us...We The People.
I expect the IRS and the FBI to show up at Nat’s door any day now.
As to the Founders' "separation of powers" principle:
Separation of Powers
- the genius of America's Constitution
America's Founders had just declared themselves free of a tyrannical government. They were determined that such tyranny would never be repeated in this land. Their new charter of government - the Constitution - carefully defined the powers delegated to government. The Founders were determined to bind down the administrators of the federal government with Constitutional chains so that abuse of power in any of its branches would be prevented. The revolutionary idea of separation of powers, although unpopular at first, became a means by which this was to be accomplished.
John Adams, in a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, stated: "I call you to witness that I was the first member of Congress who ventured to come out in public, as I did in January 1776, in my 'Thoughts on Government,' ...in favor of a government with three branches, and an independent judiciary..." By the time the Constitution was adopted, the idea was supported by all of the members of the Convention. James Madison, the father of the Constitution, devoted five Federalist Papers (47-51) to an explanation of how the Executive, Legislative, and judicial branches were to be wholly independent of each other, yet bound together through an intricate system of checks and balances. Madison believed that keeping the three branches separated was fundamental to the preservation of liberty. He wrote:
"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many... may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny."
George Washington, in his Farewell Address, reminded Americans of the need to preserve the Founders' system. He spoke of the "love of power and proneness to abuse it which predominates in the human heart" and warned of the "necessity of reciprocal checks of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories and constituting each the guardian ... against invasions by the others." Of such checks and balances through the separation of powers be concluded, "To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them."

If even dyed-in-the-wool libs are saying this... Where the hell is our Congressional GOP leadership? I mean, other than on Leno trashing their own base...
Not at all. It’s easy to explain.
FR is widely believed to be an extremely conservative site. Far more conservative than the general public. That’s a given.
Yet even here, there are a significant number of posters who knowing that the GOP has in the past consistantly, and has shown intent to continue forwarding Obama approved policies regarding illegal immigration, Obamacare, Vet benefits/military policies, Say that they are a lesser evil we must vote for “No matter what”.
So if here on the far right Repubs know they have nothing to fear from the far right of the wing, they can be 100% sure that they will get enough votes to stay in non-opposition positions of ‘power’.
Simple. People got what they voted for. If they didn’t want that, they wouldn’t have voted to empower the GOP toward more liberalism.
The joke was people had to vote against Obama last time to prove they weren’t idiots after voting to show they were not racist the first time.
Same goes for Republican voters. If they vote for more of this insanity this time, after seeing how far left the GOP has flown in the last couple years, they too will be shown to be irredeemable idiots.
And instead of attacking the messengers, perhaps the GOP fanboys and girls ought to engage their brains instead of their emotions.
He's not. He's a libertarian (from the Left).
Mysterious car accident in 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . .
That guy, Hentoff, is obviously a racist.
just my suspicion but there is always that data gleaned by the NSA that could be used to persuade (John Roberts for one) any who might disagree with the tyrant in the WH
It's also nice to know there is an ACTUAL line a lib will draw when it comes to Obama lawlessness...
My guess is his motivation behind it all is the concern a GOP POTUS will follow in Obama foot steps and treat libtards like Obama treats conservatives...
Like that would happen...:)
The GOPe idiots do not want States. They want the business of the illegals, to turn Wisconsin into a cheese factory. Menwhile Obama is making deals with them and trashing it stabbing them in the back with the EPA. The GOPe will never see the money of it. They have forfeited all influence and lobby powers to the won.
And yet idiot libtards are still electing far-left libtards. Look at my own NYC. I cringe every time I read the latest lunatic thing DeBlah-blah wants to do. Now, it’s having school vacations for every religion’s holidays. Chinese, Mooslime, etc. How about the Church of Satanic Rites? Will they get a day off, too? The result will be nickel and diming away days when teachers would much rather have a solid block of time off. With the loony-bin “Danielson” evaluation criteria just put into place and the Commie Core Crap, you can cut the tension and anxiety in teacher lounges with a knife. Everyone is more worried about the style and vehicle of the lessons than the materials which supposed to be taught. There is no time to research the CONTENT of the lessons, less time to call parents, to work with students-—only to make sure you are teaching “Danielson” style. When you have to worry more about jumping through 22 (yes, 22) checkpoints for your lessons to fulfill the “Danielson” crap than what you are actually teaching, there’s a problem, Houston.
We need a party that folds conservatives, libertarians and independents into one. Platforms would be limited government, fiscal responsibility and policies that promote small business and economic recovery.
But it seems to be on auto pilot.
I would first suggest having a deep understanding of “How they think”.
It’s not like you or I.
We need to develop a tactic, a concept of ideas that can quickly undermine this way of thought.
I’m open to proactive suggestions.
You’d expect such a pronouncement to come from a Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or other “conservative” talk show hosts but they too are quietly increasing their portfolios.
I am billing you for the cost of a new keyboard destroyed by hot coffee having travelled up and out my nostrils, the component having been damaged beyond repair as a result.
Time for Obama to be impeached."
Time for Obama to be tried for Treason, with the maximum sentenced imposed.
America ignored Article II. Americans deserve Obama.
We are living in a world in which rational and moral thought, is an act of bigotry.
It’s quite bizarre, inexplicable.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Its not bizarre or inexplicable.
America has been duped into electing a fascist, undercover of the imagery of “The First Black President,” which appealed to all bleeding hearts in the nation. It was what one may call the curse of, ‘ Two uninformed elections.’
Historians who know the ingrediants of various political movements recognize what Obama was very early, especially those who could apply the Winston Churchill analysis of fascism.
Obama falls into the fascist category, and was clearly known to be this way from his activity. But to say so and prove it was and continues to be “racist.” The facts on Obama were and still are ignored. America, because of its lapse into uniformed ignorance, suffers tremendously.
It is far past time we rid ourselves of Obama and his entire movement ( including Obama’s Joseph Geobbels style continuous campaign , designed to establish an alternate reality of untruth.).
As to what Obama is, we knew from the get go , or had every opportunity to know, many historians said so:
A good read:
Obama the Quintessential Fascist:
Now the battle for the GOP is being waged, by those who do not want to awaken America like Boehner, and by those who do, like Ted Cruz. I am for Ted cruz’s approach, and let the chips fall where they may.
“Im open to proactive suggestions.”
Why hasn’t this political ad been made yet?
In one scene OweBowMao says he has a pen and a phone blah blah blah
In the next scene ( which actually happened recently ) an Asian guy is demanding that Glorious Leader ( at one of his campaign stops ) issue a decree legalizing all illegals. OweBowMao responds by saying that his hands are tied. It’s not that easy. Congress won’t let him. There’s something called the Constitution binding him blah blah blah . . .
As usual OweBowMao always has it both ways.
The reason that ad and why republicans are so feckless, is out of fear.
Fear, the they will be deemed heartless and evil.
The political narrative has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.
The denominator of the “Self”. Even though they exploit the group mindset, they have captured the attention of virtually every individual and have successfully placed them in a group that needs their protection.
I think that Hentoff used to be very liberal but turned into something of a neo-con as he got older. I’m not sure liberals would think he is a liberal icon nowadays.
