New York congressman introduces bill
to abolish presidential term limits

The Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 1/7/2013 2:02:49 AM

New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill in Congress on Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which places term limits on the U.S. presidency. The bill, which has been referred to committee, would allow Barack President Obama to become the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to seek a third term in office. H.J. Res. 15 proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”

I much prefer a Constitutional Amendment that makes Obama president for life, permanently dissolves Congress and eliminates the vote. Nothing and no one should ever be permitted to stand in the way of the greatest human being to ever walk this planet.

I have no doubt that within the Democrat party there are plans underway to allow Obama to reign unlimited. The thought of it must first be floated, then discussed in "serious" MSM circles, then debated (it now becomes "legitimate"), then given cover with the usual guilt-inducing, smokescreen rhetoric. I know not a single Democrat who wouldn´t jump at the chance to have Obama be president-for-life, like Castro. Not one.

This Representative has introduced this bill into every session of Congress since 1997--even during the George Bush years. For some reason it is one of his causes. He is the only sponsor, and as long as no one actually agrees with him we will be ok.

He will just do an end-run around it like he has numerous other times and with the complicit media, arrogantly DARE you do do something about it and the congress will form a commission to study the issue while Obamanazi waltzes away to his third term.

Bammy plans on being chief mourner at Hugo C.´s death. It´s the Democrat´s ´Golden Circle´ all over again. They´ve just been smarter about it, this time.

The goal this time is not to fill the world with Slave States - no, that was a piker´s dream - Bammy is one of those who dream of a world where they and their friends are, on pain of death and torture, worshiped as gods.

And the media is scratching it´s collective head over the jump in gun sales?

I think the congressman got ahead of the playbook. You see, first you´re supposed to outlaw all firearms--you know, disarm the public. Then, you declare BHO the president for life.

It gets a bit untidy if you do these two out of sequence.

Unlimited presidential terms has already been tried, that´s why there is a 22nd Amendment. Americans do not want a ruler/dictator, especially one who doesn´t follow the Constitution.

The Founding Fathers probably didn´t put term limits in the original Constitution, because no one lived long enough in those days to be able to serve longer than two terms, although Washington refused the honor.

If America hadn´t been in the middle of WWII, I believe the American people might not have elected FDR to a third and fourth term. Of course, if the Republicans, as always had run serious candidates who really did have better ideas, FDR might not have been elected four times.

Alf Landon (1936),Wendell Wilkie (1940), and Thomas E. Dewey (1944) couldn´t fight the number of "takers" in those elections - shades of today. We should all tell our Congress Critters (especially the Republicans who have a wimp tendency) to study history. America has "been there, done that" with no term limits and it turned out badly.

"Those who don´t know history are doomed to repeat it."

That´s right #38. The Agenda21 bans not only firearm possession but private property as well. Bamster just contacted UN after the election and indicated he wants to revisit the issue. The dems know that although they are more anxious than a child waiting on Christmas morning for a complete and comprehensive takeover, they still have to follow the hierarchy and dissolve any chance at resistance. Just look at the link the other luc poster put up about "Grinding America Down" and see their long term goals.

The big question relates to Biology I in college: fight or take flight? With no Republican backbone, no one calling out bamster for all his lawbreaking, failure to follow the constitution, etc the default option is obvious and painful to think of.

Happy to see so many posters who checked the facts about Patrick´s non news article. He did forget though to mention that Barney Frank and Harry Reid also tried to move against the 22nd.
There were 3 other hopefuls who tried a third run before the 22nd was enacted . The other 39 or so presidents honored the gentleman´s agreement.
FDR did use the the war to stay for the 3rd. The slogan was don´t change horses in mid-stream.
During the 4th run FDR was seldom seen and wasn´t even in the WH the several months before he died. He was unable to function even with his wheelchair and out of the loop in Ga.
Congress and Harry Truman reacted fast to the situation multi- terms created that allowed a very ill man to be used by his wife and staff to govern uncontested.
The 22nd was passed by huge majority of Congress and sent to State legislatures for ratification.
At least 30 states would not ratify a repeal that would need 2/3rds to pass.

Term limit for the office of the presidency is a very important check on the power of the presidency. Any incumbent already has a natural advantage and if you keep a person incumbent for a long time, there is a tendency for a lot of power to be accumulated to negate the advantage of having a free election. Think of Soros SOS project but now in the hands of a corruptocrat like Barack Obama with coercive powers of government. Abolishing the presidential term limit is the same as enslaving the whole of America for the purpose of electing a dictator.

Molon Labe would be an apt battle cry for Americans who will not stand being taken over by this American-hating Marxist!

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. (Snip) Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan told his local newspaper that Republican leaders do not have the votes yet to pass a rewrite of the nation’s immigration system. “We don’t have the votes right now,” the Wisconsin Republican told his local newspaper, the Janesville Gazette, in an interview Monday. “Right now, we’re working hard to find where that consensus lies.” Ryan said both the right and left are holding up an overhaul.

The Obama administration has turned down an urgent appeal from Egypt’s government for the delivery of U.S. Apache attack helicopters needed for counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula. U.S. officials and a Western diplomat said the 10 AH-64 attack helicopters had been blocked from delivery in October in response to the administration’s opposition to the military ouster of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi last year. (Snip) According to U.S. officials, the Egyptians said the attack helicopters were urgently needed for Cairo’s fight in the Sinai against a new al Qaeda-linked terrorist group

OH NO! Obama may have to cut third vacation

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

Only 39 percent of registered New York City voters believe Mayor Bill de Blasio´s has done a "good" or "excellent" job during his first two months in City Hall, according to a poll released Thursday. More than half of the voters polled rated his performance "fair" or "poor," according to the Marist College/The Wall Street Journal/WNBC poll. Just ten percent of voters gave de Blasio the highest "excellent" mark while 29 percent categorized his performance as good. De Blasio, the city´s first Democratic mayor in 20 years, took office January 1

Cop-killer case sinks
Obama Justice nominee

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

Obama to Russia: There
Will Be ´Costs´ for Ukraine
Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 3/1/2014 7:27:49 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age. The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn´t exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality. In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface? And I’ve come to feel it has to do with age

“It’s Time”. That’s the message seen for the past few weeks on the 12 Years A Slave billboard as you drive on to the 20th Century Fox lot. And since the film earned nine Oscar nominations it has frequently been the slogan of choice for the Fox Searchlight contender in newspaper and television ads.

A tale of two Marylands: Western Maryland and the rest of the state. Fed up with high taxes and gun control, some people want to break away and go it alone. Mary Bubala explains why they’re trying to form their own state. There’s a storm brewing over the beautiful mountains and valleys of Western Maryland. More and more people in those five counties say Governor Martin O’Malley is out of touch and they want to break away from the rest of the state. “I can’t imagine Maryland without Western Maryland,” said Governor Martin O’Malley.

Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history. However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive. On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league´s official resale site. That´s $409 cheaper than it was

A former California Little League baseball coach has filed a civil summons against a 14-year-old player and his parents for allegedly injuring him during a post-game celebration last year. Former Lakeside Little League coach Alan Beck told Fox40.com the incident occurred last spring, when the teen threw his helmet up in victory after scoring a winning run, allegedly striking and tearing Beck´s Achilles tendon. The lawsuit seeks $500,000 for pain and suffering and more than $100,000 for lost wages and medical bills. Beck told Fox40.com he only wanted his attorney to pursue $20,000

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
