I've seen many debates about the war powers of the U.S. Congress, but I've never seen an American president openly laugh at the idea of seeking congressional approval for a major U.S. military assault on another country.
Obama did it with Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Kenya and tried it in Syria. But not in Iran.
Gaddafi is dead, Libya is a disaster, and no one has gotten any answers. Other than that contemptuous laugh. The media don't even dare to ask questions. They are afraid of retaliation.
I haven't seen an American president openly pressure the U.S. Supreme Court to protect his party's takeover of one-seventh of the American economy.
As Charles Krauthammer pointed out regarding the assertion of Federal jurisdiction made by Obama:
If [being born] ... means entering the market, Congress is omnipotent, authorized by the commerce clause to regulate "every human activity from cradle to grave."
I have not seen any American administration publicly claim its powers to rule by arbitrary decree about illegal immigrants, like a European despot.
I have not seen an American president take over banks and auto companies on behalf of his political friends, like the United Auto Workers.
I have never seen a U.S. president give open approval to a campaign of law-breaking and sometimes violent "occupations" -- as this White House has done with sixty organized leftist mobs around the country, with the ACORN voter fraud group.
I have never seen an administration that scapegoated the democratically elected opposition as "extremist." This administration has.
Obama is the first American president to assert that "international permission" beats the U.S. Constitution.
I have not seen a U.S. Justice Department that openly approved weapons-smuggling to the Sinaloa drug cartel, resulting in many Mexican killings.
I have never seen a politician who ran...

More feigned outrage from the “surprised” MSM.
An excellent and scary summary of the current state of affairs.
The real problem is we’ve never seen an American populace so successfully dumbed down by the NEA et al that 50% of them still approve of this monster (latest Gallop poll).
We could survive obastard. I’m not sure we can survive that level of idiocracy...
I fear you may be right.
Not so sure ‘scofflaw’ is entirely accurate but fits for the moment. 2008 seems like shades of 1933.
The media are Hard Left European Socialists who back everything Obama stands for.
Mix in a standard measure of White Guilt, and they will have Obama’s back until election day.
I also disagree with the conventional wisdom.
The MSM is not a mouth piece or a lap dog for the Democratic Party.
Exactly the reverse.
The MSM is the elite LEADERSHIP of the Democratic Party.
They are the brightest, best educated, best paid, most creative, most energetic, most passionate, and most dedicated political thinkers in America.
I don’t know that they are the brightest, most educated, etc.
They do have the best outlet to promote their views.
You might be a journolist!
From the movie, Nightwatch:
“Most people, when they see something like this, their immediate reaction is to ask how could somebody do this and why. Even when we catch the killer, they want to know the how and why. In movies or television, the killer always explains the how or why. He always has some reason, however crazy, with a mad gleam in his eye. But I’ve interrogated murderers like this one before, and let me tell you, they are well beyond the need to justify what they do. They just do it. Explanations are just a fiction to make us feel safe. Because if it can’t be explained, then it’s just meaningless chaos. It could touch any one of us at any moment. Which is exactly what it is.”
This quote has jumped into my head very often when asking myself WHY any American would wish to destroy the greatest, most beautiful country on earth. Insanity and evil have no reason. It’s simply what they are and what they do. Trying to explain it will drive you crazy because there is no explanation that makes sense.
As long as they keep us in chaos, jumping from one feigned crisis to another, we will never focus on a way to end it because we never know when it is going to touch each and every one of us regardless of what we do.
It HAS touched us all in one way or another in ways we never expected and we see it, but it’s like a spider web. The more you fight what you don’t know, the more tangled and stuck you get.
The way out becomes less and less clear. We SAY we know the way, but the truth is we don’t, and we had best be figuring it out or our children will never know the freedom we lost.
Don't mean to be alarmist but everyone should get your passports for your family in order in case it becomes necessary to get them out of the country at a moment's notice.
Every corrupt action has been encouraged
by the US Congress. EVERY SINGLE ONE.
Re: Brightest, Most Educated
Well, compare the top 5 elected Democrats against the top 5 news anchors.
Not a contest, to my eye.
Or, follow the money.....
News anchors - $10 to $20 million.
Elected officials - $200,000 to $400,000.
If this clown wins again it’s OVER.
I am going full APESHIT.
Oh, it’ll be over all right....
already i have an illegal getting a “cinderella license” to drive to his illegal liquor store job 3 days after being convicted of drunk driving into a police car in my state.
There are no rules anymore so why pretend there are?
We essentially have to “start over from the beginning”. Step one, Liberty is a gift of God. 2) Insist on it to death. 3)Teach your children. It will probably take 100 years but that is how long it has taken them to get us here.
I would quit putting the date for which “it is over” in the future.
By me meaning “IT’S OVER!!!!” means that i’m done conforming.
I just sold my house unfortunately, paid off ALL of my debts and still have some cash to spare.
I’m a free man and off the grid.
Now i gotta figure out what to do if/when the kenyan wins again....
I live in MA so obviously that’s gonna be the first order of business.
Your cartoon post seems to support Obama and bash the Supreme Court.
It seems to me that the whole world has descend into madness. Where do you even begin? Start over WHEN from what WITH what?
