The Wolf of the White House ^ | February 17, 2014 | Katie Kieffer

Posted on 02/17/2014 6:08:40 AM PST by Kaslin

Awooooooo! The Wolf of the White House howls incessantly. Over twenty-nine times, the wolf called out unilateral changes to the Affordable Healthcare Act.

Twenty-nine times! I’m tired of this wolf. He’s disturbing the peace and making it impossible for me to sleep at night.

Last week, I woke up at 3:30 a.m. to the sound of a wolf call. I threw my earplugs against the wall in frustration and vowed to buy those gargantuan Bose noise-cancelling headphones. The headphones worked like a charm. I couldn’t hear the wolf and I slept soundly. Well, for about two nights.

Though I could no longer hear the wolf, he came to haunt me in my dreams. I began having terrible nightmares. Nightmares of my president: Barack Hussein Obama. In my dreams, the “wolf” was hunting. He was on the move. But he wasn’t looking for deer or bear. He was hunting down the Constitution; individual freedoms; and natural rights.

Wait. Now I’m reading the newspaper. Those weren’t nightmares at all! Certainly Obama is not literally a wolf… but he was literally authorizing unilateral changes to Obamacare! If those were but dreams, I could brush them aside. Unfortunately, my nightmares were omens of reality.

It seems like every time Obama senses that Obamacare threatens the Democratic Party’s prospects in the 2014 midterm elections he uses executive privilege to massage the law; his signature law that was supposed to be so amazing that Rep. Nancy Pelosi promised us it would create 4 million new jobs and be worth the “wait” to find out what was in it.

Everyone knows that American presidents are not authorized to behave like kings. But who is speaking up now that we have a president who behaves like he thinks he’s our king? Founding Father Alexander Hamilton made it clear in Federalist No. 78 that the legislative branch controls the purse strings and makes laws whereas the executive branch enforces the laws.

Liberals will protest: G.W. Bush and Reagan passed even more executive orders than Obama!!! Certainly there have been Republican presidents who have overused their executive authority. But we can’t change the past; we can only change the future. Obama is the current president and so it only makes sense to critique his behavior.

Let’s Analyze Obama’s Loudest Howls of 2014…

January 14, 2014: Obama declares at his first Cabinet meeting: “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.”

We have phones and pens too. With which we will call and write our elected officials and tell them how disappointed we are with moderate Republicans who mutely stand by and let the president’s Democratic allies pass a measure extending the Treasury’s borrowing authority—without demanding ANY concessions.

President Obama has not changed his tune since 2011, when he told an auditorium of college students at the University of Colorado Denver: "We can’t wait for Congress to do its job. So where they won’t act, I will. ...[with] executive actions.” When will more Republicans muster the courage to challenge his power mongering?

February 10, 2014: President Obama unilaterally delays the impact of the employer mandate for both mid-sized (50-99 employees) and large companies. Mid-sized companies have until 2016 instead of 2015 to offer health care coverage to their employees; and, large companies will only need to provide coverage to 70 percent of their employees instead of 95 percent.

Smells like a politically-motivated flip flop. We’ll need more than Febreze to freshen the air and eliminate the stench of corruption from the White House.

February 12, 2014: By executive order, President Obama raises the hourly minimum wage for government contractors to $10.10 beginning January 1, 2015 in order to “increase efficiency and cost savings in the work performed by parties who contract with the Federal Government.”

Uh huh. That’s what we all do when we’re trying to save money: pay everyone who works for us an arbitrarily greater amount of money—without making them earn the raise. That always motivates workers to burn the midnight oil.

It’s time for you to speak up and demand a return to constitutional principles and individual liberty. Pick up your pen. Or your phone. Let out a howl. Aroooo!

Not all wolves are the same. Here is a point of view from my Woulf Pack:


For reasons known only to Boehner, but appear to border on High Treason to the United States of America, Boehner as Speaker of the House, has failed his Constitutional Duty to begin Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

Writing, reasoning or in any manner communicating with Obama will only increase his resolve that he is doing the correct Commie thing in his eyes and in the eyes of his former Pakistani Mentor and “bride.”

The Millions of Insured Americans that Obama has financially and medically damaged by Obamacare are just “Collateral Damage “ for the common Commie Good of The Utopian Society that will rise from the ashes of the America that Jarrett, Holder and Obama absolutely hate with every fiber of their sorry, sorry beings.

In Obama’s mind the Chinese and the Russians made mistakes with their brands of Communism, but the Commie Triangle of Jarrett—Holder—Obama will not make the same mistakes because he knows that he can do whatever he wants, and knows for certain THAT BOEHNER WILL NEVER RAISE A FINGER TO STOP HIM.

Thus to them, all is going well, ESPECIALLY if we complain, because they interpret our high level of pain as the correct pain of index necessary to achieve the death of the former America they hate.


In my humble, but USUALLY correct opinion, nothing will get better for us Americans until Boehner is removed as Speaker. His Constitutional Duty failure as Speaker borders on Treason.

Thus, our efforts should be directed at our Republican, Independent and Democrat, ( RID ), US House Representatives to DEMAND that Boehner Resign.

The pantywaist RINOs such as RINO Rep. Peter King of NY will run around with their hair on fire, screaming “THERE IS A SPLIT IN THE PARTY !”

Let them scream. I’m in this for my Children and Grandchildren, and I will NEVER put Party above Country EVER as their obsolete RINO screaming does.

For example, 3 days ago I asked my local RINOs secretary to send a letter to my un-named sorry RINO Rep requesting 3 things from him: 1.) Impeach Obama; 2.) Insist that Boehner Resign; and 3.) Support Trey Gowdy for Speaker Of The House.

Next week I will re-word, re-write and send it myself, by snail mail.

The next week, Registered Letter, etc.

My goal is a symbolic one: April 15, 2014 is the deadline for Boehner to become just another House Member from Ohio, and publicly stating to the Left Stream Media that he “wants to spend more time with his family.”

Remember this: A Dictator only has the power that the People give him.

February 12, 2014: By executive order, President Obama raises the hourly minimum wage for government contractors.

All government contractors must be unionized to bid a job and how many union workers make less than $10.10 an hour or more?.
It’s just another Obama sound bite that is meaningless five years and still going.

If it was in the personal interest of congressmen and senators to keep Obama in check, . . . they would. Since it isn’t, they don’t.
