Obama Is Bypassing Congress Again. This Time It's Going to Cost You
The Heritage Foundation ^ | 5/29/2014 | Nicolas Loris and Nicole Rusenko

Posted on 05/29/2014 6:03:40 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Next week, the Obama administration is planning to unveil a climate action plan that it intends to implement without legislative approval. It’s a creative approach to governing, not unlike other executive actions President Obama has taken to bypass Congress.

When lawmakers refused to pass cap-and-trade legislation, Obama announced there was more than one way to skin the cat. Through climate plans, executive orders and regulatory action, he directed his agencies to find ways to curb the country’s carbon dioxide output and commit to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

Obama is such a dork.

If he would simply work at expanding jobs right here in America, a whole huge bunch of Americans would resoundingly approve.

But no. We get yet more climate alarmism.

The November 2016 election could really decide if this country is doomed to go down the socialist/statist path, or if we can change course.

If a Democrat is elected in 2016, then there’s no stopping the liberal agenda.

If a Republican is elected, he/she could reverse some of these executive orders.

We need a Republican president, and Republicans controlling both houses of Congress, to ever get rid of Obamacare.

Elections have consequences. Obama was re-elected with 51% of the popular vote. The other 49% have to suffer due to the narrow re-election victory.

Less than 1,000 days until Jan. 20, 2017. I hope the new president taking office on Jan. 20, 2017 is not Hillary Clinton or some other Saul Alinsky acolyte liberal.

I’ve said since his re-election that this country will not survive his presidencey. I’m dead serious. Not only does he know his time is short, so do our enemies know that THEIR time is short to take advantage of the country while led by an utter incompetent.

I remember about this time last year when a bunch of scandals were breaking and realized we had four years for LOTS of scandals to break and we were just getting started. And so it is going. The VA think will NOT be the last one and probably won’t be the worst one.

And as he has less and less political power, it will be harder and harder to keep some information hidden, e.g. his college transcripts, etc.

But just as 2014 was much more “interesting” than 2012, and 2014 is shaping up to be much more interesting than 2013, we still have 2015 and 2016 before us. And I expect the problems for him and the country to grow exponentially, as they have already.

Keep your eyes open.

Obama and His Urban Parasites Declare War on the Constitution
American Thinker ^ | 5/28/2014 | William A. Levinson / FR Posted by markomalley

Obama's recent statement about the role of the U.S. Senate proves that he is a self-declared enemy of the United States Constitution and of its checks and balances on federal power. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said. --snip--

============================================

Obama whines to wealthy supporters in gangland Chicago: “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us Democrats at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.

THE AUTHOR EXPLAINS: Of course, Wyoming has the same Senate representation as California specifically to prevent individuals like Barack Obama, and his constituency of urban parasites, from imposing their will on the less populous states. This "Great Compromise" of 1787 was a condition of these states' willingness to join the United States in the first place. This is also why each state gets no fewer than three electoral votes, regardless of population. Hillary Clinton dislikes this arrangement, because it gives her constituency less leverage in presidential elections.

===================================================================

REALITY CHECK Obama, the man who campaigned on his alleged Constitutional expertise, still does not "get it".... the constitutional mechanism of the bicameral Congress, and three separate branches of government, is there to impede reckless agendas, such as his. The Founders (who lived under tyranny) constructed our govt to smack down tyranny whenever it raised its ugly head. The Founders' attention to this detail actually works.

We need these protections now, more than ever. To contemplate changes to consolidate the power of an individual or a party, is very, very foolish.

As long as the Republican is not another Democrat in Republican clothing like the last two candidates, there may still be a chance.

Yep. But then, he doesn't really work for *us*, nor does he seek our approval. Hence, he will never advocate anything that will strengthen this nation.

Probably not. It will be too busy passing amnesty for illegals.

By putting on his Do-Nothing Blinders, Doormat Republican Speaker Boehner is once again loyally helping Arrogant Obama “Fundamentally transform the United States of America” into an European Hell Hole of Socialism.

The Environmental PUNISHMENT Authority, in it’s infinite wisdom will continue the destruction of 40 % of America’s Electric Power Generation with only the use of Tyrant Barry’s Pen and Phone.

Once again the Do Nothing Doormat Republicans Duo of Boehner and Cantor cheer on the continued destruction of America’s Private Coal Industry.

Come Monday Morning, while Boehner is still recovering from a typical Adult Beverage Weekend, none other than Mrs. Michelle Obama’s estranged husband will bring forth the Golden Coffin Nail Words that his personal Environmental Punishment Authority has written for an Obama Teleprompter Speech.

Obama should be grateful to Richard Nixon for creating the EPA, but mainly grateful to Doormat Republican Boehner for staying on as Speaker of the House long enough to insure that the Private US Coal Industry Destruction has successfully bypassed the US House of Representatives.

FORWARD!, as America is dragged by the Boehner/Obama RACE TO THE BOTTOM!

Don’t bank on that. The Republicans as a whole are entirely responsible for their “go along to get along” actions that have brought America to it’s knees.

The Heritage Foundation is a bunch of left-wing Republicans, for the small sum of $25,000.00 they wrote a paper supporting Romney Care, then after it was passed and before the election with Romney running for POTUS they withdrew the paper.

Second, where is their extensive research paper dealing with the Obama birth cert, right no where to be found. This group is nothing more then a front group for the republican leadership..

Nov 2014 MUST replace the US House Reps with new blood that have the cajones for the fight - this clown MUST be impeached. The Executive branch does not have this authority they are exercising and everytime they issue one of these EOs without pushback from Boner and the boys just emboldens him even more. Executive Orders are to be used for directing activities INSIDE the Administration. The President has NO authority to issue new LAWS or new REGS that have no basis in law.

MAN UP REPUBS OR THE COUNTRY IS GONE FOREVER.

‘He is in such a hurry to destroy us before his term in office ends.’ Read Revelations 12:12.
Why are you so sure he will leave?
Why will no one stand up to him other than a few in the House and Senate? I will tell you why. He has the dirt on them, and except for a very few that are not yet corrupted, they are afraid of what he has gathered.
Prepare your friends and family for what will come as best you can. For those who put this man in office, those who have willfully remained ignorant and those who are not but remained silent, and those who have assisted him in implementing his plans, may they meet their Maker soon and explain with the democrat talking why they did what they did and see how that works for them. I expect He11 will be SRO.

“If a Republican is elected, he/she could reverse some of these executive orders.”

To this date there has not been a single instance where an executive order has been reversed by an incoming president.
