Top Democrats tell Obama to
ignore Congress on debt limit

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 1/11/2013 3:54:49 PM

Senate Democrats on Friday urged President Obama to do an end-run around Congress and claim the power to borrow more money on the credit of the U.S. The move, should Mr. Obama follow their advice, would likely force another constitutional battle between the executive branch and congressional Republicans. But the Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Harry Reid, said Mr. Obama should turn to the strategy as a way of circumventing the GOP on the debt limit.

Didn´t the Supreme Court rule a number of years ago that Congress cannot relinquish its constitutional authority?
Don´t these idiots realize that they´re administratively cutting their own throats, so to speak. Party over country...Gd save us.

Eventually the dems will lose the whitehouse. That is inevitable unless our republic truly becomes a banana republic. But even under that scenario the dem lickspittles in Congress will find they are the pawns as well. At that exact instant, the instant that they realize that the President no longer has any use for them, every member of the democrat caucus will start shrieking about the dangers and evils of an imperial presidency, but not one femtosecond before.

Unfortunately for them, and all os us, by then it will be much too late.

The only plausible reason for Democrats being willing to let the US go bankrupt is that they think they´ll benefit from it. But how, without money to spend? How does someone accrue power from a bankruptcy? Or is it that lefties think their perks are safe, so screw the rest of us?

Perhaps the saying has changed from Those who the Gods would destroy they first make mad to They first make them power hungry.
The progressive critters can´t see they are about to destroy their own elite concept of total power by overruling the very foundation of the necessity for a federal Governing body.
The States could form a league of States and toss them out.

Elected officials were not entrusted by the voters to represent them by evading & circumventing their sworn Constitutional duties! Ethical Senators who choose not to fulfill their oaths of office would resign. They betray their Senatorial duties. But then, renagade Senators who so ignore their obligations have no shame.

These are some words that come to mind as I see what is being perpetrated upon this nation. They should be familiar to every American, but it is apparent that while many are aware of the document from which these words are cited, far too few are even remotely familiar with what that document actually says...

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 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."

Pretty radical, huh? However, 100% American in the truest meaning of the term.

These Adam Henry´s are under the illusion they are in control. The whole premise of the bailouts was that the non-government sectors would collapse. Their assumption of an interest rate that the government gets to set if the FULL FAITH and credit of the USG is not seen behind Ben B´s funny bonds is not something history has seen.

Hillary Clinton´s phantom presence in the Democratic presidential-nomination stakes—neither in nor out—is freezing the rest of the field, creating formidable obstacles for other candidates needing to raise money and set up an organization. When advisers to a fundraising group backing a prospective 2016 Clinton bid came calling in late January, hedge-fund manager and political heavyweight Orin Kramer said he met them in his New York office and agreed to write a check. When another potential candidate, Maryland Gov. Martin O´Malley, tried to reach him, Mr. Kramer said he didn´t take the call. "She´s Gladys Knight and all the rest of

The professor who refused to sign last week’s high-profile UN climate report because it was too ‘alarmist’, has told The Mail on Sunday he has become the victim of a smear campaign. Richard Tol claims he is fighting a sustained attack on his reputation by a key figure from a leading institution that researches the impact of global warming. Prof Tol said: ‘This has all the characteristics of a smear campaign. It’s all about taking away my credibility as an expert.’ Prof Tol, from Sussex University, is a highly respected climate economist and one of two ‘co-ordinating lead authors’ of an important chapter

Hillary Rodham Clinton has helped to announce a new campaign that aims to harness science and technology to end extreme global poverty by 2030. "We intend to try to change and better lives all over the world," Clinton said Thursday in announcing the initiative in New York. "We intend to learn how better to scale successful efforts so they reach far more people." The U.S. Agency for International Development is undertaking the anti-poverty effort with 32 partners from private industry, colleges and universities, philanthropies and non-governmental organizations.

It appeared Sen.

Comment they did. By late Wednesday afternoon, the status update had more than 55,000 replies. “I and a few million other people are a lot better off,” said one user. “I hope you are enjoying your Cadillac plan given to you by your wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs.” “YES, best law ever!

Here’s a situation where a black woman in the White House could make a difference. Earlier this week, the U.S. Army released its new appearance and grooming regulations, AR 670-1, and it was a real burn for African-American female soldiers. The updated rules ban twists, multiple braids bigger than a quarter of an inch in diameter, and dreadlocks of any size. Cornrows also can’t be bigger than a quarter of an inch. As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 8,000 people had signed a petition calling on President Barack Obama to order the Army to reconsider the regulations because they are “racially biased.” The petition

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

The freshman said she was leaving the restroom and going to her social studies class when a female officer stopped her and requested her student ID, according to a statement released by the Transgender Law Center.
