Obama Decrees: He Will FLY South American Migrants To USA At Taxpayer Expense

ObamaAir

Obama’s Transformation of America into a third world hellhole by replacing Americans with illiterate, poor South Americans – accelerates with an Executive Order to fly them here on your dime.

The foreigners who reside among you will become higher and higher over you and you will become lower and lower. – Deuteronomy 28:43

We are under the curses of the Lord.  Nothing makes sense, and the government is working at a rapid pace to unmake and destroy the nation.

Hypocrisy abounds.  For the actual American citizen – rights are denied and stripped from them.  For the foreigner whom the MarxoFascists and Ruling Class Oligarchs see as their future voting constituency – receive benefits not even the taxpayers who provide the funding are allowed.

To wit: try buying a beer, a gun or board an airplane in the USA without proper and legitimate identification and you know what happens.  But if you are from South America or Mexico,  you don’t need no stinking identification.  Non-American Hispanics invading the country are not required to show identification to board a plane. Not a passport or visa required.  You try that and see how far you get.  Think Mexico or Guatemala will let you come into their country without a visa and even pay you to come to vacation there???   That’s what Obama’s Amerika will do for them.

Notice how the shrieks of horror and hell come from the leftists when these same “minorities” are asked to show identification at the voting booth.   Asking for identification or demand proper vetting of those coming into the country is now ‘racist’ and “represses” non-citizens who are given money, food stamps and the right to vote without the need to prove who they are.

The American citizen is being replaced by an illiterate, poor and dependent minority of foreigners who have no desire to assimilate and adopt our culture.  Obama and the Ruling Class are encouraging and facilitating this invasion – while denying their role in opening the floodgates while moving the Border Patrol back 40 miles from the border.

The ‘optics’ are bad in the bogus story of children traveling up through Mexico via trains and coyotes.  So Obama has gone down to Honduras and Guatemala to discuss transporting their people to America on commercial airliners at taxpayer expense and thereby ‘bypassing’ the coyotes and hazardous travel through Mexico.

Our Dear Dictator of course is going to issue a decree order to make this “law” and bypass our feckless representatives in Congress by declaring these invaders “Refugees” and granting them ‘asylum’.

Anyone recall what Obama did when Iranian and Syrian Christians wanted asylum from extermination in their countries?  How about that German family who wanted asylum for homeschooling their children?  Exactly OBAMA DENIED THEM.

A nation will not survive long with open borders.  Anyone remember when the barbarians crossed over the Roman borders and then sacked Rome by burning it to the ground?  Obama is allowing Jihadists and Reconquinistas into the country to REPLACE you and I and our children.

History I think is about to repeat itself, all by the aid of the Trojan Horse Dictator in the White House.

Obama May Bypass Congress to Grant Refugee Status for Hondurans

The Obama administration is considering a move that, according to Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, “would increase, not stem, the flood of migrants from Central America trying to get into the United States”.

“It’s clearly a bad idea,” Mr. Krikorian said. “Orders of magnitude more people will apply for refugee status if they can just do it from their home countries.” He added that the proposal would allow people to claim to be refugees from their countries with “nothing more than a bus ride to the consulate. We’re talking about, down the road, an enormous additional flow of people from those countries.”

The move may also fly in the face of the traditional legal definition of precisely who qualifies as a refugee.

The preliminary plan could create a thorny challenge for the administration because the definition of a refugee is legally specific, and children fleeing street gangs could have a hard time qualifying.

In effect, the plan would establiish a screening center in Honduras and allow for the direct transport of individuals into the U.S. if it were determined they qualified for refugee status.

… the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.

If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said, putting the violence in Honduras on the level of humanitarian emergencies in Haiti and Vietnam, where such programs have been conducted in the past amid war and major crises.

Critics of the plan were quick to pounce, saying it appeared to redefine the legal definition of a refugee and would only increase the flow of migration to the United States. Administration officials said they believed the plan could be enacted through executive action, without congressional approval, as long as it did not increase the total number of refugees coming into the country.

Directive Outlines Obama’s Plan To Use The Military Against Citizens

Residents watch as police officers search house to house for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings in a neighborhood of Watertown

Federal Directive Authorizes Military To Engage Civilians: “To Quell Large-scale, Unexpected Civil Disturbances”

It’s not hard to connect the dots about what is about to be unleashed upon us by this regime in power.

After all, Obama announced to a crowd of clapping seals back in 2008 that he wanted a “civilian security force”.

So 6 years later and what picture are we seeing when you begin to connect the dots?

Military MRAPs & APCs for civilian police departments.

SWAT teams for every Federal department and agency, including the Department of Education.

Billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition for Federal agencies like the Weather Service, enough to fight 4 Iraq-sized wars for 10 years.

DHS and the federal government are deploying a program to put 30,000 drones over American soil

Then take what His Heinous, Barack Obama  had to say to the graduating cadets at West Point this week.  He did not discuss the strength of America and it’s military to keep the peace or outline a strategy to deter Red China, Putin’s Russia or Iran from expansionism and terror.  Instead he discussed how our might should be used to combat ‘Climate Change”, not our enemies.  Chillingly Obama noted to the cadets that Climate Change is “a creeping national security crisis that will help shape your time in uniform, as we’re called on to respond to refugee flows, natural disasters, and conflicts over water and food,”.

Refugee flows and conflicts over water and food?  Sounds like he is expecting this ‘national security crisis’ to create war zone conditions.

Here’s a dot to connect.

Consider Directive No. 3025.18 –  the “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” which was issued Dec. 29, 2010 and is suddenly now making waves in the Conservative media. One of the statements it directs is that “federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances”.

Perhaps refugee flows and conflicts over water and food?  Those kinds of ‘unexpected civilian disturbances’?

Obviously Obama is priming his future military officers from West Point to accept combating Climate Change as a reason to wage war on the American people.

APC

Now what could possibly cause an ‘unexpected civilian disturbance that Obama considers to be a national security threat?

Well, other dots to connect are that Obama has to expect some push-back at some point once he shuts down 68 coal-fired electricity plants in the country via the EPA in July, to be followed by hundreds of others within 6 months and at the same time his EPA is  banning of wood cook stoves and other wood burning appliances to ‘combat climate change’.  So not only will we have no affordable electricity to keep warm, we will not be allowed to use anything else that would be cheap to keep warm either.

These are the kinds of things that will incite and cause ‘unexpected civil disturbances’.  And so we can rest easy knowing that Obama has already put in place, Directives to empower the military to crack down on a destitute and miserable people that this regime has created.

Obama just needs the excuse and he will use the ‘legal authority’ he created with his pen, to commit legal warfare upon the people.

This is how genocides are perpetrated…. legally.

I see the picture all these dots connect – and if you are wise – you will prepare for what is going to be seen as self-evident by those looking back on the last few years wondering how could an entire population completely miss what was about to be done to it by the MarxcoFascist leaders who perpetrated a velvet coup with their consent?

As SHTFPLAN.com notes:

For years the government has been stockpiling weapons, ammunition, riot gear and armored vehicles. Military personnel have been training in tandem with federal and local police using everything from fully armed helicopters to tanks across America’s major cities in what appears to be a hybridization of  domestic law enforcement agencies…..

…The armaments, training and anti-terror directives are not for use against terrorists in some far-off war zone like Afghanistan, but rather, are designed for American citizens right here at home.

Yes, you are the target.

And Obama has outlined for the future officers graduating West Point exactly what he has already prepared to use them for, under the guise of combating ‘Climate Change’ because Obama asserts there is going to be ‘refugee flows’ and ‘conflicts over water and food’. I suppose killing the economy and making energy unaffordable for middle class Americans while making alternatives ‘illegal’ will cause exactly what he says he will call men in uniform to ‘quell’.

The picture the dots connected make, is a picture of Soviet-style misery and eradication of those targets the regime decides it must get rid of.

Memo outlines Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens

US Gestapo2

A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

…The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.

“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

…“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,” the directive states.

Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.

A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.

Mr. Bundy is engaged in a legal battle with the federal Bureau of Land Management over unpaid grazing fees. Along with a group of protesters, Mr. Bundy in April confronted federal and local authorities in a standoff that ended when the authorities backed down.

Mark Of A Beast: Government Tells Church Charity ‘No Food’ Unless They Dump, Prayers, Bibles and Jesus

No-Christians,-No-Missionaries

Officials says a church charity will not be allowed to receive any USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. – 

Revelation 13:15-17

The more lukewarm and immoral we become as a nation – the more the government will force Christians to surrender and abandon their faith if they want to conduct business earn a living or feed themselves.  For now, they attack charity, because charity often requires government oversight.  But it will move on from there.
Separating the country from God is the agenda because empowering and worship of the State is the god of the Secularists and the Left.

USDA Tells Christian Charity To Kick Jesus To The Curb

By Todd Starnes

Todd’s American Dispatch

A Florida ministry that feeds the poor said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.

“They told us they could no longer allow us to have any religious information where the USDA food is going to be,” said Kay Daly, executive director of the Christian Service Center.

So why did the government have an issue with the religious group’s religious decorations?
A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Agriculture told me they were following the guidelines written by the USDA.

“This program is a USDA-funded program and the requirements were outlined by the USDA,” spokesperson Amanda Bevis said. “This agency administers the program on the state level. Our staff did provide a briefing to CSC following turnover in leadership at CSC and did review the USDA requirements.”

Daly said they were told it was a matter of separation of church and state.
A USDA spokesperson told me that “under current law, organizations that receive USDA nutrition assistance can still engage in religious activities so long as the activity is not used to create a barrier to eligible individuals receiving food.”

The USDA referred to an Executive Order providing equal protection for faith-based organizations. That order guarantees those groups the right to provide assistance without “removing or altering religious art, icons, scriptures or other symbols from these facilities.”

For the past 31 years, the Christian ministry has been providing food to the hungry in Lake City, Fla. without any problems. But all that changed when they said a state government worker showed up to negotiate a new contract.

“The (person) told us there was a slight change in the contract,” Daly told me. “They said we could no longer have religious information where the USDA food is being distributed. They told us we had to take that stuff down.”

Daly said it’s no secret that the Christian Service Center is a Christian ministry.

“We’ve got pictures of Christ on more than one wall,” she said. “It’s very clear we are not social services. We are a Christian ministry.”

Daly and her staff sat in stunned disbelief as the government agents also informed them that the Christian Service Center could no longer pray or provide Bibles to those in need. The government contract also forbade any references to the ministry’s chapel.

“We asked if we had to change the name of the organization but that said we could leave that,” Daly said. “But we had to take our religious stuff down.”

Daly said they were told they could continue distributing USDA food so long as it was somewhere else on the property – away from anything that could be considered religious.

In other words – the Christian Service Center had a choice: choose God or the government cheese.

So in a spirit of Christian love and fellowship, Daly politely told the government what they could do with their cheese.

“We decided to eliminate the USDA food and we’re going to trust God to provide,” she told me. “If God can multiply fish and loaves for 10,000 people, he can certainly bring in food for our food pantry so we can continue to feed the hungry.”

In a nutshell, Daly said the Christian Service Center would not be compromising.

“We are a Christian ministry,” she said. “Our purpose is to help people in need and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are going to pray with them. We are going to offer them a Bible. We are going to counsel them in Christian help. We are going to use our chapel.”

Churches across Lake City have stepped up to the challenge – filling the void left when the government took away their cheese.

“I’m called to do what the Lord tells me to do,” Daly said. “I’m not called to worry about it. I pray about it. The Lord answers our prayers and we move forward one day at a time, one person at a time.”

2013: MarxoFascist Tyranny Begins In Earnest

KingObamaFinger

2013 starts a chain of events under Emperor Barack Obama, America’s first imperial leader that heralds the end of liberty and the Republic.

John Galt Fl at Shenendoah shares his suppositions of what harbingers of tyranny this MarxoFascist regime will visit upon this people and nation beginning this year.  This is part one of a declared fifteen part series that looks at what we should expect to come from the overlords in government and a dependency class of citizens that look at government as god, with some who worship Obama as a god.

My thanks to John for sharing his thoughts with those of us who are willing to listen to the consequences of what has already been sown, with what has been said and written by those now ruling us.

2013 Part 1: The Imperial Presidency

by John Galt

Let’s begin this journey with a simple definition from Merriam Webster:

 

na·ive

adjective \nä-ˈēv, nī-\

na·iv·erna·iv·est

Definition of NAIVE

1
: marked by unaffected simplicity : artlessingenuous
2

a : deficient in worldly wisdom or informed judgment; especially : credulous

Seems simple enough, right? I am afraid not. There are still millions of individuals who are living under the delusion that the current regime in power will act within the constraints of the United States Constitution and obey the rule of law. There is some merit to the idea that the Obama administration’s second term will provide the appearance of complicity, but in reality the political infrastructure that allowed for the circumvention of our nation’s cornerstone legal document is not only in place and ready to act yet in an expedited manner.

The recent issues left unresolved after President Obama’s first term are numerous:

1. Gun control – Now a major issue for debate in the U.S. thanks to a hyperactive media and leftist extremists and globalists terrifying the masses.

2. “Unfair” mass communications – In the eyes of the MSM and left, the so-called right wing monopoly of talk radio and the internet will result in a retaliatory action of some sort.

3. Illegal immigration.

4. The Capitalism issue – Unequal distribution of wealth and resources.

Can Obama fix these issues? Yes per President William Jefferson Clinton’s favorite adviser, Paul Begala in 1998:

 

“Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool.”

 

NewsweekLogo-1 [Converted]

 

And so he shall. Obama has an opportunity rarely afforded to the Executive branch of the U.S. government. He can nominate numerous judges to replace Republican members of the bench as they retire or die off. He will reshape the United States Supreme Court before his term is over, codifying international law as an acceptable alternative to the U.S. Constitution when regulatory or statutory actions are impeded.

Executive Orders will replace the Legislative Branch of government’s oversight. Laws can and will be issued to mandate behavioral and economic controls and there is insufficient opposition and a shortage of judges at the Federal level who will resist. This nation is about to witness a blitz of edicts which shall become the law of the land unseen since World War I and the 1930′s. The complicit media will say it is a lack of “bipartisanship” but in reality this is what dictators engage in, as one President succeeded in doing to a great degree some eight decades ago. Americans will not care as the distractions of our culture will keep them sufficiently averse to objecting to any actions which do not directly impact their lives.

Unfortunately for the American people and those who believe in freedom and the rule of the Constitution, this President has power and a willingness to use it unseen since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The con job who pulled on the Republicans regarding the so-called fiscal cliff was an example of skill; the implied threat of terror based on racism upon anyone who reflected on his past, his family, his collegiate career, or any aspect of his overseas created an atmosphere where no debate or criticism was possible without ostracizing the candidate or individual out of the public spotlight. Worse, this President does not fear using his law enforcement, financial enforcement, and tax collection divisions of the government to destroy his enemies. Publicly there has been acknowledgement that indeed this President has an enemies list, including military heroes   andbusinessmen who have opposed his regime on policy issues, making this affront far worse than Richard Nixon’s actions in this regard.

During the reign of FDR, America witnessed dozens of Unconstitutional Executive Orders, attempts to usurp and pack the Supreme Court, and actual Marxist ideals implemented into policy (WPA, FERA, Agricultural colonies/aka Communes based on the Soviet model).  Under this regime, corporations have been seized and given to the unions under the guise of distorting the bankruptcy laws, legitimate businesses like coal companies and offshore oil drillers have been forced out of business by regulatory actions, and  now with the compliance of a weak and inept opposition, the government now has the power to determine air, water, and quality of life issues which may impact one’s health. The proposition is terrifying because the dictatorship of the proletariat is now in place and sadly few have taken notice.

The excuses offered in 1933 America were that “things were so bad, we had to take drastic action.” The excuse offered in 2009 to press his legislative agenda:

“We have to be bold, we have to act fast, and we have to think of the future.”

Let that sink in as he hammered the poor condition of the economy home blaming Bush, the Republicans, and those businesses which would not bow down to his statist extortion. The result is what most citizens are beginning to witness now; a degradation of freedoms and economic stagnation. This coincides perfectly with the actions of FDR as well as the NDAA detention clauses and DHS which terrifyingly parallel Woodrow Wilson’s detention camps and American Protective League. Yet so-called liberals and Republicans remain silent because a mythical war on terror is more important to maintain to restrict American’s freedoms than to prevent attacks on our soil. The power and technology in the possession of this President far surpasses that of any regime in the history of the world, down to soon controlling and monitoring the very DNA within one’s body.

America has not realized it yet, but in the months to come and historians living in free nations  might come to agree with the statement I shall make to summarize our situation:

Imperator Baracum Obamam, Americam primum imperialis dux.

(Emperor Barack Obama, America’s first imperial leader – translated to Latin with Google Translate)

Obama To Give Himself Sweeping Power To Control Internet Content

Executive Order granting the president sweeping power over the Internet is “close to completion.”

After the Congress repeatedly killed attempts to give power to Obama to regulate and control the internet, Obama has decided to ignore Congress and issue another decree – errrr Executive Order, granting himself the power to take over the internet and shut it down or regulate it in the name of ‘security’.

Obama had already signed an Executive Order back in July that granted him an “internet kill switch” in the event of a ‘crisis’ or ‘national emergency’ that he, himself will define.  But that was not enough power.  It is the CONTENT on the internet that Obama disagrees with, that he wants to shut down.

This new Executive Order, in conjunction with DHS and other Executive agencies – will grant Obama sweeping power and control over the internet and it’s content.  Given the fact the Obama regime continues to blame a YouTube video for the 9-11 attacks and Islamic uproar at United States Embassies in the Middle East, Obama appears he will use the crisis as a justification for his decree to put the internet and it’s content under his direct control.

Testifying before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Janet Napolitano said that the order is still “being drafted” and vetted by various high-level bureaucrats. But she also indicated that it would be issued as soon as a “few issues” were resolved. Assuming control of the nation’s Internet infrastructure is a DHS responsibility, Napolitano added.

Once Barack Obama signs his name to this edict and assuming compliance with its mandates changes from voluntary to involuntary, he will possess powers only dreamed about by the most ambitious dictators of history.

“In the wake of Congressional inaction and Republican stall tactics, unfortunately, we will continue to be hamstrung by outdated and inadequate statutory authorities that the legislation would have fixed. Moving forward, the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in an email reported by The Hill.

It is the hallmark of all Marxist dictatorships to control the flow of information.  In the name of security the Obama regime is assigning itself control over the flow of information.  This should frighten every American, especially considering his regime is repeating the suggestion that offending Islam is not freedom of speech, and is become a national security issue.  Therefore – under that pretext, Obama will justify his dictatorial action.

Dictator Obama Guts Welfare Reform Law By Decree

Obama’s HHS issues a new policy directive that abolishes the 1996 Welfare reform Act.

In yet another blatant example of an Imperial (read Communist Chairman) Presidency, Obama’s HHS issued a new policy directive that REWRITES the 1996 Welfare Reform Law.

In the same vain of playing semantics with the ObamaCare “Tax” or “Penalty”, the Regime today plays around with the definition of ‘work requirements’ and uses that as an arrow through the Achilles tendon of the law to bring it down.  The precedent this sets is quite frankly frightening when you consider that if he gets away with yet another policy directive that ignores the rule of law or rewrites it as he does here, Obama has established that he can rewrite or ignore ANY law of his choosing and make that official federal policy.

Why bother having a Congress at all then?  For a practical matter the Legislative branch no longer exists unless it rubber stamps whatever Obama demands.  We have a dictator right in front of our eyes, being empowered by the very fools and ignoramuses that his regime will hang or shoot the moment his glorious People’s Revolution is achieved.

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation for pointing out what Obama’s HHS has done here.

Obama Guts Welfare Reform

Today, the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the reform law. The Obama directive bludgeons the letter and intent of the actual reform legislation.

Welfare Reform under Clinton

Welfare reform replaced the old Aid to Families with Dependent Children with a new program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The underlying concept of welfare reform was that able-bodied adults should be required to work or prepare for work as a condition of receiving welfare aid.

The welfare reform law is often characterized as simply giving state governments more flexibility in operating welfare programs. This is a serious misunderstanding. While new law (the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996) did grants states more flexibility in some respects, the core of the act was the creation of rigorous new federal work standards that state governments were required to implement.

The welfare reform law was very successful. In the four decades prior to welfare reform, the welfare caseload never experienced a significant decline. But, in the four years after welfare reform, the caseload dropped by nearly half. Employment surged and child poverty among affected groups plummeted. The driving force behind these improvements was the rigorous new federal work requirements contained in the TANF law.

Obama’s Trick to Get Around Work Requirements

Today the Obama Administration issued a new directive stating that the traditional TANF work requirements can be waived or overridden by a legal device called the section 1115 waiver authority under the Social Security law (42 U.S.C. 1315).

Section 1115 states that “the Secretary may waive compliance with any of the requirements” of specified parts of various laws. But this is not an open-ended authority: Any provision of law that can be waived under section 1115 must be listed in section 1115 itself. The work provisions of the TANF program are contained in section 407 (entitled, appropriately, “mandatory work requirements”). Critically, this section, as well as most other TANF requirements, are deliberately not listed in section 1115; they are not waiveable.

In establishing TANF, Congress deliberately exempted or shielded nearly all of the TANF program from the section 1115 waiver authority. They did not want the law to be rewritten at the whim of Health and Human Services (HHS) bureaucrats. Of the roughly 35 sections of the TANF law, only one is listed as waiveable under section 1115. This is section 402.

Section 402 describes state plans—reports that state governments must file to HHS describing the actions they will undertake to comply with the many requirements established in the other sections of the TANF law. The authority to waive section 402 provides the option to waive state reporting requirements only, not to overturn the core requirements of the TANF program contained in the other sections of the TANF law.

The new Obama dictate asserts that because the work requirements, established in section 407, are mentioned as an item that state governments must report about in section 402, all the work requirements can be waived. This removes the core of the TANF program; TANF becomes a blank slate that HHS bureaucrats and liberal state bureaucrats can rewrite at will.

Congressional Research Service: “There Are No TANF Waivers”

In a December 2001 document, “Welfare Reform Waivers and TANF,” the non-partisan Congressional Research Service clarified that the limited authority to waive state reporting requirement in section 402 does not grant authority to override work and other major requirements in the other sections of the TANF law (sections that were deliberately not listed under the section 1115 waiver authority):

Technically, there is waiver authority for TANF state plan requirement; however, [the] major TANF requirements are not in state plans. Effectively, there are no TANF waivers.

Obviously, if the Congress had wanted HHS to be able to waive the TANF work requirements laid out in section 407, it would have listed that section as waiveable under section 1115. It did not do that.

Define “Work”…

In the past, state bureaucrats have attempted to define activities such as hula dancing, attending Weight Watchers, and bed rest as “work.” These dodges were blocked by the federal work standards. Now that the Obama Administration has abolished those standards, we can expect “work” in the TANF program to mean anything but work.

The new welfare dictate issued by the Obama Administration clearly guts the law. The Administration tramples on the actual legislation passed by Congress and seeks to impose its own policy choices—a pattern that has become all too common in this Administration.

The result is the end of welfare reform.

Obama Executive Order Is Legal Precursor To Totalitarianism

History repeats itself because people choose to forget the lessons of history.  Thankfully there are a few left who are crying aloud the warning this blog has been screaming about since 2008 regarding the current regime that is assigning itself dictatorial power over all life in the United States.

It is not lost on this author, that the country I return to in a few months, will not be the same one I left.  How long do we have before the fullness of night descends upon a nation that has become lost and forgotten the God whom blessed it?

From Ann Barnhardt:

WHY THE NDRP E.O. OF 3/16/2012 IS DIFFERENT

POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – MARCH 18, AD 2012 8:46 PM MST

I’m getting really, really sick of these pundits and talking heads on the so-called “right” clucking their tongues at the unwashed masses and telling us that we’re crazy and paranoid to be the least bit concerned each and every time the Obama regime takes another stride toward totalitarianism. And it is EACH AND EVERY TIME.

Let me break it down for Ed Morrissey, and all of the other pundits in that social circle so that you can get your heads around this. We are concerned and even, dare I say it, panicked, because we can see the big picture of the Obama regime for what it is. We can take the totality of the dataset and draw not just a logical, reasoned conclusion, but a conclusion that is supported by centuries – nay millenia – of past precedent.

We are, as Patrick Henry put it, “willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

Why is the 3/16/2012 Executive Order worthy of grave concern? Simply put, because of the man and the regime who issued it. This is a man, and a regime that has done the following:

-Sent the Secretary of Defense (Leon Panetta) to Congress to put them on notice that despite the explicitness of the Constitution, the consent of the Congress to wage war will neither be solicited nor required by the Commander in Chief or his regime. The CiC and SECDEF may, if they feel like it and can find the time, MAY inform the Congress of “kinetic military actions” henceforth.

-Declared the First Amendment null and void by mandating that every American must, as a condition of legal residency in the United States, pay for abortions. Mr. Morrissey, being a Catholic, you should understand that what the Obama regime has done is demand your very soul. In order to remain corporeally “free” in the United States of America, you must enter into mortal sin, reject Jesus Christ in totality, turn your back on your Crucified Savior, excommunicate yourself from the Church, and consign your immortal soul to eternal hell. If that isn’t the prohibiting of the free exercise of religion, then nothing is or ever could be.

-Committed acts of war upon the sovereign nation of Mexico and her people, willfully arming narco-terrorists with the intent of using the optics of hundreds if not thousands of brutally murdered Mexicans in order to stir up and justify the overthrow of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. This is textbook sedition.

-Has coordinated with regime cronies in the Legislative Branch to enable the Obama regime to operate for an entire term WITH NO BUDGET WHATSOEVER. In this time, the Obama regime has looted the United States Treasury and debased the currency of the United States to the tune of SEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS, or roughly one-half the gross domestic product.

This is just a very, very, very short list. Additionally, with each passing day it is being further revealed that EVERY SINGLE PERSON Barack Obama has ever associated with has been not merely a Marxist, not merely a Socialist, not merely a Communist, but a TOTALITARIAN hellbent on the destruction of the United States of America.

I’ll concede the point that if this Executive Order was issued by – get this – Jimmy Carter or even Bill Clinton, I could buy the idea that it was merely an emergency protocol housekeeping item of some sort geared toward the reaction of the Federal Government after a nuclear attack. I’d be skeptical, but I would be open to the argument.

Not so now. These people are totalitarian tyrants who are no longer even trying to hide their intentions. See the bulleted items above. There comes a point where you have to pull your head out of the sand, synthesize a massive dataset into its obvious, coherent output, and be willing to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Denying the obvious, even when the obvious is horrific, is not some sort of virtue. Keeping people numb to reality and drunk on a sugary treacle of distraction and reassurance that “everything’s okay” even when every iota of data and experience tells us that everything is NOT OKAY is not a virtuous public service. It is a massive failure in charity, both towards those who are misled and falsely-consoled by your assurances, and toward those whose intellects and intentions you backhandedly insult.

Remember, people exactly like Ed Morrissey and his ilk were calling everyone warning of Hitler’s danger to mankind “alarmist”, “conspiracy theorists” and “paranoid” up until 4:40 am on September 1, 1939 when the Luftwaffe attacked Weilun. And before that mess was over, 70 million human beings were dead. The hell that the Obama regime is determined to unleash on the world will make World War II look like a mere bar fight.

Yeah, I’m sorry I can’t tell you the day, hour and minute that open war is going to break out, both overseas and here in the homeland. If that failure makes me non-credible and paranoid, then I wear that sash with pride, and am consoled and flattered by the caliber of the company of Jeremiahs and Cassandras that I join. But I do know that it is coming, and that the NDRP Executive Order of 3/16/2012 is, WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE DAY AND THE REGIME THAT ISSUED IT, entirely ominous and certainly tactical.

I’ll leave you with the video of Larry Grathwohl, which can never, ever be posted, spread and publicized too much. Recorded in 1980, when Barack Obama was nothing more than a drug-addled foreign student at Occidental College and not yet even a glimmer in the eye of the Totalitarians who would later adopt him as their public persona, Grathwohl recounts conversations led by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the founders and leaders of the Weather Underground, the Marxist-Communist-Totalitarian terrorist group that Grathwohl was tasked to infiltrate, and the eventual intimates, ghostwriter and political handlers of Barack and Michelle Obama.

The Totalitarian cabal that runs the Obama regime has intended, for decades, to collapse the United States, overthrow it, establish a Totalitarian oligarchy, and as a necessary corollary to that, murder at least ten percent of the population as “die-hard, unreformable capitalists.” In 1980, that 10% worked out to 25 million human beings. Today, it would be 31 million – but heck, what’s another Holocaust (6 million) give or take?
