From Healthcare, to Cap and Trade, Obama and the Marxists in the Politburo have circumvented the Constitution and Congressional rules negating over two centuries of law and procedure.
While the American people were busy shopping for Christmas; catching the latest tabloid sexual tryst involving Tiger Woods’ pursuit of a harem; or standing in line at the unemployment office praying for yet another extension of benefits, the Politburo in Washington has buried the remaining vestiges of the Constitutional republic they swore an oath to defend and uphold.
Every day – another outrage, another lie, another trouncing of liberty takes place by this evil Marxist regime in power. A few weeks ago – Obama did a pre-emptive end-run around the Constitutional requirement of Senate ratification of whatever Climate Change treaty Obama signs in Copenhagen by empowering the EPA to regulate the air we exhale, essentially implementing the punative accords the Global Warming Socialists want put upon America.
Pretending they were still beholden to the rule of law and our founding documents, the Marxist Democrats – doing the express will of Dear Leader Obama, have joined The One in throwing dirt into the hole in which Obama has flung what remained of a Constitutional Republic. We learned this week that while the Senate was supposedly debating in public what was ostensibly the “healthcare bill” – Democrats were behind closed doors in secret, crafting “another” healthcare bill that they sought to slip in past everyone’s notice.
On Tuesday, American Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders introduced a 767 page Communist single-payer “amendment” (has there EVER been an “amendment” to a bill that large before?) on the Senate floor. No one had seen or heard of this “amendment” until Sanders submitted it because it was drafted by key Democrats in secret behind closed doors. Stunned by this move after Republicans were shut out of the entire process, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) requested that any health care amendment considered by the Senate be offered at least 72 hours in advance of debate and with a full cost report. He was rebuffed by Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) for making the request and was denied. Coburn then invoked the parliamentary right to require that Sanders’ entire Amendment be read aloud.
This sent the Marxists into shrill orbit, who essentially demanded that they be allowed to shove their amendments drafted in secret to the floor without either the Senators or the Americans people the ability to know what the Amendments contain before the Senate votes on them.
Of course the GOP strategy was to slow down the Marxist juggernaut of a health care bill after bribes, graft, extortion and direct threats were made to Democrats who were wavering on their support of Obama’s final nail in the coffin of liberty. Using parlimentary rules that were established back in 1789 that affords Senators the right to ask that bills be read unless a unanimous consent vote to suspend is given, Little Mussolini Harry Reid decided to haul the Parliamentary Officer back into his chambers to make him an ‘offer he could not refuse’. Three hours after the reading of Sanders’ single-payer amendment began, Harry Reid threw out over two centuries of rules and traditions – to allow the Socialist Sanders to withdraw his Amendment. This was a gross violation of not only procedure, but American tradition of law and precedent.
The Republic was swept into the grave – and now the Marxists are planning to throw dirt upon a gasping system that our Founders established once Obama gets his legislative ability to empower the government to decide all matters of everyone’s life…… and death.
As Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K) said in a statement late Thursday: “Here’s the most outrageous part: at the end of this rush, they want us to vote on a bill that no one outside the Majority Leader’s conference room has even seen. That’s right. The final bill we’ll vote on isn’t even the one we’ve had on the floor. It’s the deal Democrat leaders have been trying to work out in private”.
What McConnell finally woke up to was the fact that the Democrats were orchestrating a bait and switch by Obama, Reid and Pelosi right under his nose. The Sanders Amendment created a single-payer health care program by expanding Medicare to the point it would essentially take over as the instrument of administering Universal Government-run Fascist Health Care.
This is nothing new – in fact, it is exactly what Obama himself has stated was the process by which he envisioned implementing single-payer Socialized Health Care. Sanders’ Amendment was simply the Obama-drafted switch to the ruse and bait Harry Reid was feeding the Senate for the last few weeks.
“This entire process…is essentially a charade,” McConnell said.
Welcome to Moscow on the Potomac Senator.
I’m not the only one who has taken notice of what has transpired here. Our friends in the Great White North at Canada Free Press have made similar observations:
Obama’s Communists Now Ruling the USA: Republic is Formally Dead
The bribes issued by Sen. Harry Reid and the threats issued by the Marxist usurper and dictator-in-Chief in order to garner votes for the ObamaCare Death Plan have now reached almost legendary proportions. In order to end cloture, Reid actually had $300 Millions for Louisiana written into the Senate’s ObamaCare Death Plan version to buy Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) vote.
It worked. Landrieu even bragged about it. Now, the would-be Chicago-style godfather Obama has threatened the hold-out Nebraska Democrat Senator Ben Nelson with closure of Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force base (which employs over 10,000 people and is the headquarters for the US Strategic Command) if he doesn’t play ball with him, the USA’s head mobster, and vote for the bill that will begin the ultimate slavery of the American people.
Note: Obama is so bent upon getting his way and destroying the USA that he is now openly—and in full view of all—threatening to place the country in even more jeopardy. The Communist Obama Government now has a stranglehold on the United States of America, its legislators and its people and he will NOT willingly let go. In fact, as his smile beams even more broadly he is squeezing ever tighter to end our lives and the life of our country.
In order to bring former Democrat and now Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) into line, Obama ordered his minions to go on a search-and-destroy mission against Lieberman’s wife Hadassah. After his Tuesday press conference, it appears that Sen. Lieberman may have folded like the proverbial cheap suit.
Here are only a few of the facts:
- The ObamaCare Death Plan will gut Medicare by at least $500 Billions—in order to rid Obama & Co of Senior citizens. Seniors were forced into Medicare years ago and now they’re being told it’s time for them to die
- The pro-abortion language, if removed for the vote, will be added back in when the Senate and House cone together to “blend” the bills
- The government-run portion of the bill, which was ostensibly removed, will be added back in when the Senate and House cone together to “blend” the bills. Even if it isn’t now done now, the framework for all of the additional Obama-run new government agencies (over 140 of them) will remain in the Obama Death Plan
- The Marriage Penalty remains in the Obama Death Plan. You didn’t seriously believe this was about health care—did you?
- The Death Plan includes provisions for the Obama-run government to enter private homes in order to observe how parents are raising their children and to “counsel” said parents
There is so much wrong with this plan and the House plan—think total slavery—that it cannot be fixed. So, they will pass it anyway with a “damn the people” and “damn the Republic” attitude. When this horror passes, folks, it will mark the formal end of our Republic. We will then officially enter the beginnings of the Bondage Phase of our existence. Our rulers in Washington D.C. stopped listening to us some time back. They pay no attention to us when we march and/or question them at Town Hall meetings. Instead, Obama has found a way to ensure that he and his like-minded cohorts are never again voted out of office. The Obama has announced his plan to also shove Amnesty for Illegals and Democrat votes down our throats. Obama & Co pass one set of laws for what used to be We-the-People and another set for themselves—the ruling elite.
This is it. It’s fast approaching the now or never moment. Once more for the troops who understand: “We must no longer reason or deliberate. We only want concord and steadiness. The lot is cast. If we prove victorious, we shall be a just, free and sovereign people. If we are conquered, we shall be traitors, perjured persons and rebels.” John Adams during the American Revolution in 1777.
