America is in the hands of a dangerous pathological narcissist who is letting the veneer of statesman slip to reveal his true nature; that of a dictator.
Obama’s first State of the Union speech revealed that Obama was not going to waver from his Left-tilt bent into Marxism even after the trouncing Democrats have received in the last several elections culminating in Scott Brown’s election to the seat held for decades by Ted Kennedy. Obama proved that he truly is a pathological narcissist that is angered over his loss of popularity in the polls. What we saw on Wednesday night was an angry petulant child lashing out at his perceived enemies while touting himself as savior by his non-achievements. His bold-faced lies began nearly the moment he started speaking and did not let up until he got to his Mussolini-esque defiance at “I don’t quit!”.
What stood out in the speech, were two things that revealed his dictatorial nature: his slam of the Supreme Court; and his decree that he will issue an executive order to seat a debt commission that the Senate voted him down on.
He has spent the last year actively pitting one group of Americans against another. After the failed Jihadist terror attack on Christmas day, he pitted one federal agency against the other to absolve himself of blame. Last night he began to pit each branch of government against the other.
Despots do this, not presidents.
Obama’s demagoguery of the Supreme Court was unprecedented. He first lied and misconstrued the facts of the case, which given the fact he was supposedly a Constitutional lawyer, cannot be simply chalked up to ignorance. Obama claimed during his speech that the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC,
“opened the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections”.
He then raised the demagoguery by stating:
“Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities.”
The president’s statement is patently false and deliberately misleading.
The Court held that 2 U.S.C. Section 441a, which prohibits all corporate political spending, is unconstitutional. Period.
And rightfully so.
Foreign nationals, specifically defined to include foreign corporations, are prohibiting from making “a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State or local election” under 2 U.S.C. Section 441e, which was not at issue in the case.
Foreign corporations are expressly prohibited, under 2 U.S.C. 441e, from making any contribution or donation to any committee of any political party, and they prohibited from making any “expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication.”
Of course it is now major news that Justice Samuel Alito dared to defy the wannabe-king by mouthing the words ‘That’s not true” while shaking his head.
In true Pravda fashion, the State-run sycophantic media lapdogs of Obama – instead of checking into WHY Justice Alito would be shaking his head at Obama’s remarks, attacked Justice Alito for daring to disagree with Der Fuhrer. Shaking your head, yelling “You lie!” or refusing to stand and applaud Obama is grounds for complaint from both the White House and his media. In nations that have already gone down the path Obama is taking us – such insolence is met with a gunshot to the head, followed by burial in a mass grave.
The bashing of this decision by SCOTUS demonstrates either blithering ignorance or willful loathing of the law. I’m going to assume the latter given Obama’s tenure as a Constitutional lawyer. He then went on and directed Congress to circumvent the Court’s decision in the Citizens United vs Federal Election Commision decision and “right that wrong”.
Such is hubris of a kind not seen in the Oval Office.
But Obama did not stop there in revealing his true self.
He then chided the U.S. Senate for blocking his proposal to create a ‘debt reduction commission’. Because of their blocking, Obama will simply create the commission by decree.
“Yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have created this commission. So I will issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward, because I refuse to pass this problem on to another generation of Americans”
Because HE refuses. The Monarch refuses to allow the pesky Separation of Powers and the Constitution to get in his way of destroying the country. With such open and deliberate defiance, one has to wonder that if his Health Care Takeover plan meets a similar fate in the Senate – will he will do the same thing – and simply enact his desires by decree?
This is what tinpot Marxist dictators like Hugo Chavez do.
We are in mortal danger here as Obama lets the veil slip – and we see the dragon’s skin underneath his thin veneer of coolness.
Mark Alexander notes that it is Obama Versus the Constitution and Ben Shapiro points out the media’s blame Alito strategy.
