Obama’s regime is lawless. No one holds him to account. Corruption is exhonerated. Laws are drafted in secret or enacted by decree. Bills are passed in the middle of the night without anyone reading them. We are become Soviet.
Fundamental Transformation nearly complete. Your so-called “Representatives” at the Kremlin – er …. CONgress have doomed our economy and your children’s economic future by automatically raising the debt ceiling for the next two years.
Obama’s entire lawless agenda has been fully funded and financed by YOU via the chicanery of the Ruling Class Oligarchy in Mordor on the Potomac.
Gun grabs, property seizures, EPA oppression, IRS as a weapon – FULLY FUNDED.
ALL OF IT PASSED in the middle of the night by McConnell’s Senate – AFTER John Boehner orchestrated the House deal in secret with Obama himself.
There IS NO representation in Washington unless you are a Marxist/Socialist.
In the new standard of late-night bill-passing sessions, the Senate gave final approval to a ridiculous behemoth budget that funds Obama’s entire agenda with limitless spending early Friday, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign and fund the rest of his fundamental transformation of America into a Soviet-style hellhole.
The final vote on passage was 64-35, as Mitch McConnell’s Republican oligarchs joined forces with Democrat Marxist Fascists over the objections of GOP presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, all of whom voted against the deal. The bill is marketed by the Praetorian Pravda media as averting a debt default, avoiding a partial government shutdown and setting unlimited spending priorities to the tune of over two TRILLION dollars for the next two years. The deal handcuffs a new congress and a new president and forces them to continue funding Obama’s entire agenda – even after he supposedly leaves office.
Earlier in Friday’s session, the Senate voted 63-35 to end debate on the measure. The vote to approve the bill was taken just after 3 a.m. EDT.
Republican leadership on orders from the Ruling Class under Boehner made secret deals with Obama because they were intent on steering Congress away from their duty to use the power of the purse to restrain a lawless executive branch. Former Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, felt a particular urgency days before leaving Congress, to screw the American taxpayer and subject our children and grandchildren to a bleak future, while lawmakers look ahead to presidential and congressional shell-game elections next year.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. – Declaration of Independence, 1776
Mordor-On-The-Potomac (aka: Washington D.C.) is nothing more than a corrupt Beast, having usurped the Constitution and pursuing policies and plans that are reducing us under absolute Despotism.
Why do we continue to allow ourselves to be conquered by this evil? When will Americans wake up and realize that the Federal Beast has no legitimate moral authority over us? Rather all it has is guns they put to our heads while they practice lawlessness and flaunt their tyranny in our faces.
So Boehner hands Obama’s dictatorship another year after his term is supposedly up, funds everything Obama wants and eliminates the federal spending cap for the next 2 years, meaning Washington can spend whatever it wants on whatever it wants.
Ask yourself – if you are broke, can you call your credit card company and demand they raise your credit limit so you can spend tenfold more than your current overdue balance is ? Can you tell your credit card company that you also will defer all payments for the next few years? Then, after making these demands, you THREATEN them with non-payment if they do not do as you request? You think you can get away with that?
The American Federal Government just did this. And is getting away with it – to the absolute ruin of your children and grandchildren. The entire Federal Government is CONSIGNING us and our progeny to unimaginable ruin, poverty and destruction.
A Congenital Liar that is responsible for killing Americans, enriching herself off the people, selling her office for donations while pursuing more power, are absolved from all their wrongdoing by grant from the Praetorian Pravda Media. Joe Sixpack Businessman would rot in prison for even a minor infraction such as not backing up his e-mails much less setting up a secret server trading classified documents over the internet. But Hillary is absolved.
Because in this new Despotism, some animals are more equal than others.
Heads of agencies, using their office to attack, punish and eradicate political opposition after erasing the evidence of their treason against the American people, are exonerated and given cushy pensions we pay for.
Using the IRS to harass, punish and abolish Conservative and Christian groups is now an institution that is permissible under the Beast that rules us.
So exactly why do we Americans allow ourselves to be subjugated by this evil tyranny? What more evidence do we need to understand that the entirety of the Federal Government is wholly illegitimate? From the Executive Branch, to the Legislative and Judicial branches, they have all demonstrated that they will usurp, violate, abolish by decree – and ignore THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES when it suits them. They act OUTSIDE the bounds of the Constitution. They abolished the Separation of Powers. They have created a defacto dictatorship under the rule of oligarchs. They will not follow the Rule of Law, rather they decree that the rule of law is whatever they say it is.
Then they declare that you ‘voted’ for this.
As such – the entirety of the Federal Government of the United States has no legitimate, moral authority under Heaven. Instead, it is become an institution of Satan – and wholly evil, despite supposed ‘citizens’ this people think they send to Mordor to represent them in matters of Justice.
All this Beast in Washington has, are guns that it will put to your head to force your compliance with their edicts and tyranny.
Or are you more willing to suffer, because this evil is sufferable, rather than abolish this form of tyranny to which you are accustomed?
Mitch McConnell plays political games while the US Senate votes “NO” to defund the taxpayer-funded baby-killing and organ harvesting entity.
I’ve been saying we as a nation are become worse than the Nazis when it comes to perpetrating mass murder and evil. The Republican-led Congress proves this fact themselves when it could not muster the votes to move a motion to the floor to DEFUND Planned Parenthood after videos have been released of the abortion company’s admissions and practices of killing babies after being born alive and butchering them for money.
Mitch McConnell, talking out of both sides of his mouth and rectum, knew this was going to happen when he stopped an amendment to defund PP from being added to the already pork-laden Highway Bill last weekend. The Ruling Class lackeys are insisting McConnell was engaging in parliamentary maneuvers so he can bring this vote up again later.
Like abolishing ObamaCare “root and branch”?????
The same kind of ‘maneuvering’ McConnell is known for doing that produces NOTHING but anal wind?
As usual – the GOP is engaged in kabuki theater: sound bytes to the media for public placating, while acting to ensure Planned Parenthood is protected.
More telling is McConnell’s near-silence about this horrific investigation’s revelations until pressed about it, and the refusal of the GOP caucus to even discuss this so it makes the Praetorian news media. Nothing. The fact that the senate uses a failed cloture motion to STOP debate is an artifact of the senate’s complete dysfunction as a vessel of preserving or protecting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The GOP simply have no intention of ever defunding Planned Parenthood, anymore than it intended to defund and repeal ObamaCare. They want the issue to be used to fundraise. Period. That’s all. Defunding the leading abortion mill in the country takes away their carrot to swindle campaign donations from moral Americans who oppose the mass murder of the unborn.
Once again SURRENDERING before any fight could be attempted.
McConnell, John Boehner and the Republicans know what’s going on in these Planned Parenthood videos. If killing babies and selling the organs for profit while getting a taxpayer subsidy is not worth shutting the government down, what is? Obviously NOTHING is worth shutting government down to these Political Priests on the Potomac.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) sought Tuesday to quash a growing speculation that Republicans would shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. “We’re not going to go there,” he said. “I wish there was some way to convince all of you guys that there will be no government shutdown.”
Chopped up dead babies mean nothing to these beltway pigs because it’s happy hour time!
Rand was ranting about about 58 votes to defund PP.
Not even close. I doubt McConnell even whipped this vote. They don’t care. Not interested at all.
One game McConnell plays is take a hot issue (like Planned Parenthood) and delay any action until the fever pitch is gone, and it’s out of the news.
All the Republicans have to do (all the ever had to do) is refuse to support any spending bill that funds PP. I can think of nothing better than a government shutdown.
This is the LOTE Party (lesser of two evils) though. They will completely fund PP in the next budget. It will happen something like it has in the past: it will come in multiple staged votes with promises of amendments which won’t happen (Iran deal, TPP), will have a tax cut or increase with a promise to defund PP later (Fiscal Cliff), or it will simply fund PP at current levels and raise funding elsewhere (which will get funneled back to PP) [the last shutdown, Ryan/Murray budget].
The fact remains that McConnell boxed himself into this corner all by himself. He chose to block Rand Paul’s defunding amendment to the highway bill that would only have needed 51 votes to pass, in exchange for this standalone bill that needed 60 votes to pass.Ted Cruz says that McConnell did that to protect his back-room deal for the Ex-Im bank, because Obama would have vetoed the bill with defunding in it. It was all for nothing because the House refused to take up McConnell’s highway bill and recessed for August.So now McConnell is left with the stain of this Nay vote, and an explanation that is falling on deaf ears.
Perhaps another reason why McConnell supports what Planned Parenthood is doing is the following fact:
So apparently in his mind there is no problem with what Planned Parenthood was discovered to be engaged in. After six years – there’s still NO opposition anywhere to any evil, and one day – they will all be held to account for refusing to do what God would expect His People to do:
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work? – Proverbs 24:11-12
The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses. Intact fetuses are “just a matter of line items,” says Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast Melissa Farrell. In a separate conversation, Farrell talks about how she can make more money by dissecting “human cadavers,” and that it’s all “just a matter of line items.” But when the buyers want an intact cadaver, Farrell’s more than willing to make sure they get it. The dissection video is incredibly disturbing. “The organs come out really, really well,” one technician says. They go into detail about the manipulation of dilation to improve organ harvesting. Late-term abortions use a two-stage dilation, for instance. The technicians and the investigators spend quite a bit of time identifying the human organs and bones in the dissection, once again underscoring that these are not “clumps of cells” but human beings being destroyed.
Mark Meadows (R-NC) makes a daring move to cast down John Boehner in a motion to vacate his Chair immediately.
Breaking News, my only commentary is: took you guys long enough. Now let’s wage this war against the Establishment traitors to the Republic and the Constitution and replace them before there is no country left to save from the velvet Marxist Coup that nullified the Rule of Law in America.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)has filed a motion aimed at unseating Boehner immediately as Speaker of the House.
“Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has filed a motion to try to force Speaker John Boehner from his leadership post,” Politico wrote in a breaking news alert. “The move, called a motion to vacate the chair, represents a new level of opposition to GOP leadership from the conservative wing of the House Republican Conference. The motion can be postponed for several days before consideration.”
It’s unclear if this will be successful, but over the past few years there have been two major coup attempts at Boehner. Both were unsuccessful—but extraordinarily close to succeeding—and centered around plays at the beginning of this Congress and the beginning of the last Congress.
This move will focus on centering around a different strategy, and it all comes after Boehner’s leadership team unsuccessfully attempted retaliation against Meadows for opposing Obamatrade. They had tried to pull a subcommittee chairmanship from Meadows—and did so, but then reversed themselves under enormous pressure from the GOP conference and the American people, turning Meadows into a conservative movement hero of sorts.
Boehner’s office has not immediately responded to a request for comment but conservative movement stalwarts including nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin have called for his ouster in recent days.
Meadows is a highly respected conservative member of the House and is intricately involved in the House Freedom Caucus. He’s plugged in party-wide, and wouldn’t be doing this if he didn’t think it could be successful.
Read the full motion to vacate the chair, filed by Rep. Meadows, here:
The abrogation of the Constitution and the Dictatorship of the Obama Regime is being made possible by the Republican Party leadership.
In the face of what is become self-evident Uniparty rule in Washington D.C., I marvel at the multitudes who ignore what is going on and lying to themselves while demanding to be lied to, insisting in sometimes virulent outbursts that we can fix Obama’s dictatorship by simply electing more Republicans.
I laugh in their face. So should we all.
The “solution” to a post-Constitutional Dictatorship is to “elect” more Republicans????
How stupid. How moronic. How utterly enslaved to a false belief system such people are.
The fruits of the last two months of GOP leadership is one of complete surrender to Obama; betrayal of the voters who sent them to Washington to STOP the burgeoning dictatorship; and the total violation of the oaths they all swore to uphold the Constitution . Handing the GOP both the House and Senate in November proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that giving the GOP leadership, was an exercise in futility. We might as well have just kept the Democrat Marxists in power.
I keep hearing radio pundits and talk blowhards insist that Conservatives must ‘take over the GOP from within’ – as if all the evidence of the Ruling Class Oligarchy’s open warfare policy and sabotaging of their Conservative base did not exist and we are still back in the 1980s where the voters actually has a voice and influence in their party’s actions. The GOP Leadership has made it plain and crystal clear: THEY DO NOT WANT CONSERVATIVES OR CONSTITUTIONALISTS IN THE PARTY… they only want their votes, and they assume they have them because they think we have nowhere else to go. So they love it when Conservatives deceive themselves into thinking they can reform the GOP from within by simply electing more Republicans.
Look, the Establishment has made it IMPOSSIBLE for Conservatives to take control of the party – not that it would make any difference to a lawless dictatorship in the White House. Single Party rule now exists at the expense of liberty and the Constitution, to the applause of a party that was supposed to be the ‘opposition’ and check on lawlessness from the Executive branch, but prefers to be the vanguards of dictatorship so they can have a seat at the table of our national carcass being carved up and devoured by pure evil. Still the ‘base’ of the GOP refuses to see, hear or understand what their party has done.
This is the truth of it – Obama would not be a dictator today, if he were not empowered to act as monarch by the GOP Republican Leadership who directly enable His Heinous to shred the Constitution with their blessing.
They have willfully and vehemently surrendered their Constitutional powers in an insane effort to make sure Obama is able to do his will without any obstruction. Gone are their powers of the Purse; of the filibuster; of legislating; of oversight; of impeachment. They have openly stated they will not obstruct this lawless dictator, nor with they permit anyone in their party to use the tools the Founders provided to check the Executive’s UnConstitutional power grabs. The GOP leadership and their party have FUNDED every unConstitutional decree and illegal act this regime has instigated .
We no longer have representation in Washington D.C.
Yet for the mind-numbed GOP Loyalists who are infected with Battered Wife Syndrome, they make excuses for their adulterer husband and willfully give themselves over mind, body and soul to more abuse.
Washington will never allow itself to be fixed, and you cannot overcome a dictatorship and oligarchy via civil means, PERIOD. A lawless government will never allow itself to be restrained by law. They will become a law unto themselves, and indeed, they have already achieved that.
The GOP are nothing but a rubber stamp for Obama’s Despotism
How do you think Republicans would have done in the 2014 elections if they had told the truth about what they intended to do when they took over the Senate? What if they had campaigned on working hand-in-hand with Obama to enact his illegal alien amnesty while supporting his budget priorities, confirming a new Attorney General who thinks everything Obama is doing is fine and promised they would do nothing while he illegally bans ammo, cripples the Internet, and lets the EPA run wild? Republicans are even gearing up to SAVE OBAMACARE if the Supreme Court guts the subsidies.
Conservatives complain endlessly, with good reason, that Barack Obama is acting like a dictator. What’s left unsaid is that he’s only able to do it because Republicans in the House and Senate are standing by impotently and allowing him to do whatever he wants. Despite winning two huge victories in 2010 and 2014 by promising to fight against Obama, the GOP has shown nothing but rank cowardice in every confrontation with him. It’s hard to understand how men like John McCain, who showed such great courage in war, can be so cowardly when they’re asked to stand up for America against the Democrats. What kind of Republicans would rather fight their own supporters and constituents than stand up to Barack Obama?
In fact, we should consider ourselves lucky that Obama hasn’t gone even farther, because who’s going to stop him? The Republican Leadership in the House and Senate?
Barack Obama could declare that he is going to tear down the Lincoln Memorial to make room for a giant statue of himself and Republicans would end up funding it because they’re so petrified the media would blame them for the shutdown that would ensue if they didn’t go along to get along.
John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise, and Cathy McMorris Rodgers are our leaders in the House and Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, John Thune and John Barrasso are our leaders in the Senate. These are the sort of people C.S. Lewis spoke of when he wrote, “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”
Conservatives all know that our leaders in Congress are yellow; they can’t talk, can’t strategize, can’t tell the truth or do anything else that most of us expect from men worthy to lead. However, the “traitors” part of that quote is apt as well because they just betrayed their constituents, conservatives, and the Republican Party to help Obama implement his illegal, unconstitutional amnesty.
Back in late 2014, conservatives were begging the GOP leadership to pass a short-term continuing resolution so that the GOP would have more leverage after we controlled the House and the Senate. They refused to do it, but conservative complaints about Obama’s amnesty were so loud that the GOP Leadership couldn’t immediately capitulate and were forced to do something. So, they declared that the DHS wouldn’t be funded unless Obama buckled on amnesty and they gave their solemn oaths that they’d fight tooth and nail once the GOP controlled the House and the Senate.
Then predictably, when Obama refused to give in, the GOP Leadership barely put up a fight before they caved in and gave him exactly what he wanted. Mitch McConnell worked with Harry Reid and John Boehner worked with Nancy Pelosi to fund millions of work permits and tax rebates for illegal aliens. They also effectively signed off on 5 million illegal aliens getting Social Security cards and drivers’ licenses that they could very possibly use to VOTE in our elections! The GOP Leadership called it illegal, they called it unconstitutional, they claimed to oppose it – yet they fought to fund it! If a judge in Texas hadn’t unexpectedly blocked DHS from carrying out the amnesty, something that could end at any time, Obama would be moving full speed ahead with the blessing of the Republican Leadership in Congress.
Don’t just take my word for it on how the GOP leadership sold you out; listen to Ted Cruz.
“Since December, the outcome has been baked in the cake. It was abundantly clear to anyone watching that leadership in both houses intended to capitulate on the fight against amnesty,” Cruz said, adding, “It was a strategy doomed to failure. It’s an old adage in Washington: Never take a hostage you’re not prepared to shoot.”
“There was no chance, zero, that Republicans were going to fail to fund the Department of Homeland Security because Republicans care deeply about homeland security,” Cruz continued.
“If we had been serious about this fight, and we should have been, the continuing resolution [under which DHS funding expired in February 2015] should have focused on the EPA, or the IRS or the Department of Labor,” Cruz said. “Now, those are departments which a majority would be prepared to allow funding to temporarily expire in order to use as leverage.”
Conservatives so opposed amnesty that the GOP leadership couldn’t pass it themselves; so this was their attempt to help Barack Obama implement it. It was a dishonorable, rank betrayal of conservatives. All members of the GOP leadership along with every Republican who voted for a clean DHS bill deserve to be publicly horsewhipped for what they did.
Sadly, we can’t get away with horsewhipping public officials any more, no matter how much they may deserve it, but we don’t have to vote for them. We don’t have to fund their campaigns. In fact, we can primary them, we can protest their donor meetings, boo them in public, leak information that hurts them to the press and undermine them at every opportunity. We can demand that our representatives vote against Boehner and McConnell if they want our support. We can do everything we can within the law to make life rough for them.
There are a lot of Republicans who will vote for anyone with an “R” beside his name, no matter what he does on the theory that he’s better than the Democrat. There is a lot of merit to that thinking and I have argued for it myself on many occasions, but we’ve gotten to the point where Republicans in D.C. are taking advantage of it to such a ridiculous degree that it should no longer apply.
They lie to us, they think we’re stupid, they trash groups who represent us, they hold us in complete contempt and then they mock us by saying, “Ha, where else are they going to go?” That’s bad enough, but we’re now getting to the point where it’s like we’re being asked to vote for Benedict Arnold on the theory that he’s better than voting for the British.
Difficult though it may be to hear, the God’s honest truth is that it’s not enough to get rid of Obama and replace him with a Republican. At a minimum, we need changes in the leadership of the Republican Party in the House and Senate to have any hope of making progress.
You think we’re going to repeal Obamacare with Boehner, McConnell and their cronies in charge? You think we’re going to crack down on illegal immigration and control our borders? You think this nation will be able to stave off bankruptcy with men in command who can’t lead, can’t talk and won’t fight anyone but conservatives?
I think Barack Obama is on track to fundamentally transform America, not because what he’s doing is right, popular, or successful, but because conservatives aren’t willing to DEMAND that their representatives in Congress stand up, speak out and stop him. The time for playing nice with the GOP’s incompetent, ineffective, disloyal leadership in Congress is at an end. The only way the country has a bright future is if the current Republican Party Leadership in Congress has no future in politics.
Obama answers a question about his illegal actions by saying no one can stop what he does – he asserts he will simply veto whatever is attempted to restrain him and ignore any judge he disagrees with.
The mask Obama used to deceive and beguile the vast masses of emoting sheeple in America, is falling – and the true despotic nature of the America-hating Marxist-In-The-White-House is revealing itself. Not that it matters now anyway, the mask is no longer necessary.
Obama’s true motives and intentions are self-evident and illustrated by his policies and actions. His words and true demeanor are now catching up to the destructive intents he is waging upon the country – because he knows he can do so with impunity. No one will stop him. Anyone attempting to do so is being publicly assassinated with help from Obama’s Praetorian Media and punished in various manners by the Executive Branch.
Before day One of His Heinous’ reign in America – we warned you that the mindset he and his MarxoFascist stooges was one of dictatorship and totalitarianism. That their intentions was to take power – and rule.
See for yourself:
This is the creature – Valeria Jarrett who is the real power behind Obama and the Marxist/Fascist fundamental transformation they are implementing. But Americans refused to believe she really meant what she said, same as they refused to believe everything else they let slip or said that revealed their true nature and intentions.
America has a fatal case of Normalcy Bias – and it’s now terminal.
Obama knows this, as does the Marxist Revolutionistas now ‘ruling us’.
Obama has told us repeatedly that he will rule as he sees fit, and make decisions for all of us that he decides are ‘right’. He has repeatedly ignored rulings from the Judiciary he does not like. Even so far as to assert that Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen’s rock solid ruling against his Executive Amensty “Is just one judge” and that he – Barack Obama “..will use all the legal power vested in me in order to solve this problem”. Nevermind that the judge ordered his decree illegal and that he was commanded to stop implementation. Obama is ignoring his ruling, “confident’ he will find another judge to rule in his favor. So he continues without any regard or any fear of reprisal for criminal violation of a federal order.
Obama enacts law by decree. From creating a “Country within a country” of Middle Eastern Refugees and South American third world squatters he is flying and bussing into the country to be supported by the taxpayer; to bypassing Congress in total to enact treaties, nationalized takeovers of the Internet, student loans, healthcare, food, water and property – it does not matter if his actions violate the Constitution or the rule of law. He has said and written that he has authority to ignore those laws he disagrees with, and impose laws by himself via regulatory alphabets and other schemes.
On Thursday last week , Obama vocalized this assertion of kingship as the final arbiter of law when making it clear that no one can stop him or even declare what he does as illegal.
“If Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do,”
He is absolutely confident what he is doing is the right thing. Yes. All despotic and genocidal maniacs assert the same exact thing Obama just did. Above the law and outside of any checks or balances. Whether it is outlawing dissent, punishing opponents, or eradicating undesirables, all such Dictatorial Despots say what Obama just said; that they are doing what they say is right, and that they are confident of their decrees.
So Obama is king – by default, because no one would stop him when they had the power, the chance and the occasion to do so. Instead – every check and balance was surrendered or usurped to Obama without any fight whatsoever. From the Press, the Congress and the Judiciary – all have bowed down to Obama and his agenda – which is their agenda and has been their agenda before he even got there.
The Republic is gone as is the Constitution. They exist now in Name Only. A false deference, to what we are supposed to be – for the purpose of fundamentally transforming the country under the noses of the very people this regime intends to enslave and destroy.
The king is above the law – for he IS the law! Seig heil His Imperial Heinous Barrack Hussein Obama! – Defy him and be vetoed and then suffer the consequences for insolence!
Rule Of Law: First, the president issues unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then, he dares an equal branch of government to vote on his orders’ legality so he can veto it. Is he establishing a monarchy?
While speaking at a town hall meeting Wednesday night at Florida International University, President Obama clearly indicated that he believes he is the final authority on law in this country. He will not tolerate dissent.
“If Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do,” he told a group organized by Democratic Rep. Jose Diaz-Balart.
In November, Obama announced a set of unilateral actions to change the immigration system. Government agencies were ordered not to enforce the law against up to 5 million illegal immigrants in the country. He also declared that they would not be subject to deportation and were to be handed green cards.
There was no vote in Congress. No consultation with the House and Senate. No law cited that gave him the authority. Just his word.
A month ago, we wondered if Obama was “so hellbent on amnesty for illegals he’ll resort to nullifying and even breaking the law.” Today, we know that he is.
Not even a federal judge’s ruling has stopped him from making and unmaking law as he sees fit. On Feb. 16, Southern Texas District Judge Andrew Hanen issued a temporary injunction against the administration’s executive lawmaking. “No, Mr. President,” said the George W. Bush appointee, “you and your party’s long-term political agenda are not above the law.”
The administration wants Hanen’s order lifted, but one should assume that even if the courts don’t rule Obama’s way, the White House will eventually do as it wishes and challenge the courts to stop it, just as it has taunted Congress.
Several times during Obama’s six years in office he has insisted he’s not a king able to act alone. He said it right up until he began to overtly behave as one.
House Speaker John Boehner’s office counted 22 times that Obama said “he couldn’t ignore or create his own immigration law.”
Yet at a time of his choosing, the president decided he could indeed create his own immigration law, just as he made changes to the Affordable Care Act as if it were his own set of commandments handed down from on high.
Obama is the president who said all he needed was a pen and a phone, that he wasn’t going to wait around for Congress to act.
He’s the Oval Office occupant who, while visiting Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home in Charlottesville, Va., a year ago with French President Francois Hollande, declared that it’s a “good thing as a president, I can do whatever I want.”
We said then and still believe today that if he meant that quip to be a joke, “it’s a bad one, for it accurately describes the psyche of a president who governs by executive order and regulation.”
A little more than a year after Obama’s re-election, the Washington Times reported that “from immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists … urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term.”
They knew with whom they were dealing.
Obama well represents the political left, which has no time or respect for constitutional limits, the rule of law or power shared among the three branches.
Today’s leftists, loosely defined as “progressives,” want raw political power to enact their agenda. And from Obama they’re getting it.
Doing what he would never do to Obama or Democrats, Boehner once again blasts Conservatives for pointing out the bovine excrement in his budget surrender with Obama.
FACTS in the ‘budget deal’ now being peddled and promoted by the GOP Ruling Class:
• Federal Spending INCREASES IMMEDIATELY to $1.012 TRILLION PER YEAR.
• Fully funds the train-wreck known as ObamaCare for 2 years (which means it will never be repealed because as Reagan noted, a government entitlement “is the nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth”)
• The so-called ‘cuts’ to discretionary spending of $85 billion happen OVER ten years – or – just a trickle of reduction in the deficit, if it happens at all (the 2011 budget ‘deal’ proves this tactic to be deceptive at best).
• The most America would ‘save’ in this deal is $23 Billion over TEN YEARS – provided there is no new spending increases, which you know Washington cannot live without.
McConnell silent – probably so he can vote against it and claim he is a Conservative for the primary while trashing Conservatives from behind.
So once again, we have an immediate increase in spending to the tune of trillions for the phantom promise that the federal beast will cut spending in ten years, or over ten years – or not at all if a future Congress decides to ignore or raise federal spending yet further. More spending now, for a promise the federal government will reduce spending later.
This is like an Alcoholic promising that after their next drinking binge, they ‘promise’ to slow their drinking and drunkeness over the next ten years to less than 10% of what their alcohol intake currently is.
But the GOP Ruling Class is showing teeth at Conservative groups who are wise to the gimmicks and bovine excrement being foisted upon the people.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
In a rant he would never utter about Democrats or Obama, the weeping wimp of a House Speaker snarled at Conservatives: “They’re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous,” When asked about the conservative groups opposing the deal, he cut off the reporter asking the question and retorted; “You mean the groups that came out opposed to it before they ever saw it?” he said. “… If you’re for more deficit reduction, you’re for this agreement.”
Ryan used the well worn tactic of ‘flooding the zone’. Spewing dozens and dozens of small fine points and details in machine gun rapidity so as to overwhelm the interviewer who has no time to fact check the blizzard of minute details. It`s a cheap trick, but Levin blew through the Barbara Streisand to focus on the fact that this ‘deal’s really a surrender with massive spending increases now called ‘fees’ with a so-called promise of cuts in 2023 which we know will never happen. Levin properly noted to his next guest that this deal is more proof that fixing our Republic is not going to come from Washington as they are totally incapable of reforming themselves. The GOP Ruling class talking point is that ‘elections have consequences’ and the solution is to ‘vote for more RINOs’, which Levin pointed out to Ryan that the government grew under the Bush GOP to it’s greatest levels before Obama surpassed them.
The GOP is irrelevant, they are nothing more than Judenrats to entrap Conservatives and get them onto the Obama boxcars, hoping that by doing so – they can retain their seat at the table after the MarxoFascist coup has reached it’s zenith. Washington is broken – it cannot be reformed by any institutional means, because they have corrupted it all. It is an historical fact – that a lawless regime will not follow the laws or the will of the people, leaving them no civil recourse to redress grievances.
That we are Taxed Enough Already is irrelevant to the political class in Washington. They will tax us more and call it a spending cut and then attack anyone who disagrees with their robbing our wallets and purses.
A last ditch effort by the GOP to keep government running but suspending ObamaCare subsidies for Congress and their staff is rejected by the Democrat MarxoFascists, prompting the Federal shut down.
There is this truth: the cabal running Washington D.C. will rather delight in everything burning down than to surrender their taxpayer-funded perks. For them, some animals are more equal than others.
The GOP leadership’s late offer to the Senate and Obama was a bill that funds the government through Dec. 15, but included a measure to delay the health care law’s individual mandate while getting rid of federal subsidies for the health insurance of members of Congress and their staff — an idea pushed by Louisiana Sen. David Vitter. But Harry Reid and the Ruling Class in the Senate rejected the offer, preferring the political football they think will be easily played over the heads of their low-information welfare voting constituency.
…In the final hours before the midnight deadline, the House ended with a simple proposal. It would agree to fund the government, if the Senate agreed to scrap the special subsidies lawmakers and staff receive to purchase health insurance. The final House proposal only effected people on Capitol Hill. Harry Reid said, effectively, we’ll shut down the government to keep our subsidies.
The Senate, however, rejected both provisions. Had it opted to eliminate its own special subsidies, the government would be open today. Preserving its own platinum health insurance coverage drove the Senate to close the government. But the Praetorian Media will never report this truth. Instead they will parrot Obama’s blame game on ‘extremist Republicans’ ‘holding the country hostage’.
One of the most profoundly unfair provisions of Obamacare is that members of Congress and their staffers were unilaterally and illegally granted a special exemption from the law they themselves passed. Unlike many Americans, many of whom have been forcibly kicked off their current health care plans, the governing class and their staffers as of now will keep their insurance providers and receive an enormous taxpayer subsidy (depending on which plan they choose) to off-set rising health care costs. Sound fair? I didn’t think so. As it happened, many congressional staffers threatened to resign if they were forced to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges and comply with the mandate — even though many of them helped draft (and ultimately pass) the legislation.
….Democrats voted in lock-step with their party to buck the House of Representative’s duly passed spending bill on several occasions. Not only did they reject a continuing resolution that would end this unjust and unfair Obamacare waiver — a de facto endorsement of special privileges and protections for members of Congress — they voted against the provision to delay the law’s controversial mandate requirement to purchase health insurance.
That said, what is happening IS NOT a government shut down. It is a political ploy to add maximum pain upon the American people and inflict misery and punishment for the purpose of attempting to turn popular opinion against Conservatives. Obama’s existing scheme of Sequester and this shut down is just another tool in the hand of the MarxoFascists to hurt the American people.
If we are going to have a REAL government shut-down – then We The People should send Congress, the Courts and Obama HOME WITHOUT PAY – WITHOUT PERKS – WITHOUT PENSION. Let THEM apply for unemployment like the little people they inflict their misery upon. While we are at it, kill the Alphabets – shut down the IRS, the NSA, DHS and the EPA. Worthless money-sucking agents of tyranny that need to be abolished anyway.
McConnell’s vitriol against Opponent Matt Bevin showcases that The GOP Leader’s guns are only primed for Conservatives, doing the dirty work for Obama and the Democrats.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been amazingly silent in Washington recently regarding all the various Administration scandals from Benghazi to the IRS targeting of Conservative groups to other divisive political issues the country is confronting from Amnesty to ObamaCare.
But Mitch McConnell is suddenly VERY vocal, and goes for the throat when it comes to any primary challengers or Conservatives that calls his leadership into question. In an incredible illustration of Jeckyll and Hyde, the Kentucky Ruling Class Establishment leader is resorting to constant trashing of his new primary opponent Matt Bevin as ‘not a Conservative’, but a ‘fraud’ in radio, mail and TV attack ads that air at seemingly at every commercial break. The harsh accusations from McConnell against Bevin range from charges Bevin is a tax cheat, welfare recipient, swindler, carpet-bagger and a Conservative fraud”. This is hilarious coming from one of the greatest Conservative frauds now in politics.
Along with John McCain, Eric Cantor and John Boehner – McConnell is a key part of the Establishment Triumvirate that sees Conservatives and Tea Party Americans as a nuisance at best, and a dangerous enemy at worst. When it’s Primary time, they pretend to be Conservatives to win what used to be the Republican base, but once they are seated – they govern against Conservatives and side with or capitulate to the Obama/Liberal Democrat agenda nine times out of ten. That is McConnell’s record of failed leadership.
Scripture tells us ‘Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them’. Matthew 7:20
The facts are that the GOP leadership under McConnell, Cantor and Boehner have accommodated Obama’s agenda while they sat silent in the face of the NSA/IRS and Benghazi scandals. They surrendered their opposition with Harry Reid’s Rules change ‘nuclear option’ threat – giving Obama and the Democrats EVERYTHING they wanted. They continually run interference for Obama and hamstrung several committees looking into those criminal issues and have been mum to the press and public about them. But comes a primary with a Conservative to challenge their failed leadership – then the big guns that sat silent in holsters while Obama and the Democrats rape the Constitution, suddenly come out firing and the war cries to the death are hurled.
The Ruling Class GOP leadership demonstrates it is fully-capable of standing in opposition to those things it hates – and what the fruits show us all, is that they are silent in opposition to Obama, but vitriolic in their battles against Conservatives who do not lick their palms, or sit silent or capitulate to the agenda that is subjugating liberty into tyranny. In fact, I believe McConnell and the GOP leadership hate and disdain Tea Party/Reagan Conservatives as much as Obama and his MarxoFascists do. We see it daily, the glee from Democrats to have the GOP leadership go to war for them against their common foe in Conservatism.
The fruits of this fact are self-evident in the war Mitch McConnell is waging against primary challenger Matt Bevin. Never have I witnessed such intense opposition and efforts to tear down a man from within his own party, than what I am reading, watching and hearing from Mitch McConnell’s campaign for re-election. Worst of all, McConnell has to LIE in order to sell the illusion that HE IS THE REAL CONSERVATIVE.
Labeling McConnell’s rival as “Bailout Bevin” — complete with a Web site called bailoutbevin.com — is especially misleading, given the ad does not point to any long history by Matt Bevin of accepting state or federal assistance. This grant — a more accurate term — is specifically tied to maintaining job growth and is aimed at small businesses, and was received after a significant setback.
Although the ad highlights the company’s failure to pay taxes on time, the East Hampton tax liens highlighted in the ad were actually paid in full before the grant was issued.
The image portrayed in the ad is that Bevin gets “bailouts” while skipping out on his taxes. The reality is that, after financial success, he became involved in a small family business with historic roots in the community and had started to get the company back on its feet when tragedy struck. Rather than throw in the towel, he decided to try to rebuild the business, with some state aid.
Ordinarily, one would think McConnell would celebrate such gumption by a small business owner.
Where is this kind of passionate opposition from McConnell against Obama, or the Democrat agenda, or ObamaCare? The efforts Obama and the Congress attempted to strip us of our Second Amendment Rights?
Even McConnell’s so-called efforts to stop Obama’s War on Coal – are laughable. Like everything else McConnell does, he simply makes a speech and then sits back and DOES NOTHING to help others actually waging his so-called effort to stop Obama, while sabotaging many Conservative efforts behind the scenes.
Conservatives in the House passed H.R.3409, the Stop the War on Coal Act, even with the help of some Democrats. McConnell did NOTHING to help push that bill or its provisions to the Senate floor and fight for it. McConnell has done nothing to stop the EPA’s ridiculous oversights or to reign in those rogue agencies – rather he surrendered any opposition to Obama’s radical picks for agencies like the EPA and labor board when Harry Reid threatened to change the Senate rules.
McConnell doesn’t put his money where his mouth is. Instead of running ads every ten minutes against another Conservative, perhaps it would have been wiser to run them against Obama’s agenda?
Nah…. They have a “civil process” in the Senate that apparently doesn’t allow negative attack ads against Democrats or Obama
Another example of all mouth – no substance –
McConnell keeps insisting he “Has worked to oppose ObamaCare every step of the way”. He just said that this past weekend at a political Picnic in Western Kentucky.
But that claim is absolute garbage – a total twist on the truth and reality. He says one thing for the cameras, and works behind the scenes to do the exact opposite, even INTIMIDATING other Senators to drop Conservative positions in order to advance Obama’s agenda:
Sen. McConnell is quick to tell us that he has checked every box on the “oppose Obamacare” checklist. He has held plenty of press conferences declaring his opposition to Obamacare. But behind the scenes he has done everything in his power to stymie any real chance at eliminating the biggest expansion of government in modern history.
…Utah Senator Mike Lee is leading an effort to defund Obamacare as part of negotiations over the government’s funding bills for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins October 1, 2013. Senator Lee has issued a letter, signed by 13 of his colleagues, declaring:
Utah Senator Mike Lee is leading an effort to defund Obamacare as part of negotiations over the government’s funding bills for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins October 1, 2013. Senator Lee has issued a letter, signed by 13 of his colleagues, declaring:
We view the Obama Administration’s recent decision to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate and eligibility verification for the individual exchanges as further proof the law is a failure that will inevitably hurt businesses, American families, and the economy.
In light of this admission, we believe the only way to avert disaster is to fully repeal Obamacare and start over with a more sensible, practical approach to reforming our healthcare system.
However, if Democrats will not agree with Republicans that Obamacare must be repealed, perhaps they can at least agree with the president that the law cannot be implemented as written. If the administration will not enforce the law as written, then the American people should not be forced to fund it.
Not only has Sen. McConnell refused to sign this letter, he is twisting arms behind the scenes, convincing senators to remove their signatures from Sen. Lee’s letter. To date, five senators have fallen prey to Sen. McConnell’s intimidation tactics.
So while McConnell is out there on the campaign trail shouting “I opposed ObamaCare every step of the way” – it turns out that the truth is – he is sabotaging the last-chance effort we have to stop ObamaCare before it is implemented. Even going so far as to intimidate other Senators to remove their support from the effort to stop and defund ObamaCare.
In Fact, McConnell’s position on ObamaCare is what John Boehner’s position is: go along with it. Listen to what GOP Rep Robert Pittenger said over the weekend in North Carolina when asked about defunding ObamaCare:
That is the official GOP Ruling Class position on stopping and defunding ObamaCare: NO.
McConnell is part of the Ruling Class Oligarchy that MUST be run out of D.C. if Liberty has any chance of surviving. McConnell is absolutely no Conservative – you can see those fruits by the war he is waging on Conservatives like Matt Bevin and his record of capitulation in Washington.
