Obama´s Creeping Authoritarianism
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/31/2013 9:41:29 PM

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

It´s getting pretty nauseating to now listen to all the politicians, show hosts, etc on the right telling us all how nasty 0baba is acting and conducting business in the white house how he treats the Constitution, etc. and YET... no one and nothing is being done to stop him. I listen to Mark Levin listing all the sins that 0bamba is committing against America and yet NOTHING is in place to stop him? No one is in place to cut him down to size.
I´ve written my congressmen, senators, etc and they NEVER answer that question. What is going on? What someone is going against the LAWS of this country is no one big enough to stop this thug? And if that´s the case then that HUGE mistake needs to be recified to protect us from the evil of his ilk! I´m shocked that no will tell me the answer and mostly no one is man enough to take him down!!!! Sickening! That means that any other thug can do this AND more to us! Anyone...can anyone answer my pleas?

Henninger warns we shouldn´t complain we didn´t see it coming.

I saw it coming back in 2008 when I voted for the other guy, the lesser of two bad choices.

So we´re going to allow him to set up his own Dictatorship without firing a shot? Without fighting this war?

Where is Congress on this?

Why is no one saying he´s abusing his power?

Why is he permitted this unchecked destruction of our Constitution?

Why is everyone except US silent?

Mark Levin´s "We The People" protest should be attended by everyone who is mobile, able-bodied and wants this country to survive as founded. If we don´t storm the barricades, we lose and will die by apathy.

What will it take?
The subversion of the Constitution now has 24 or more Czars, busily writing laws and controlling us. The Czars answer to no one.
No egregious usurpation seems to gain any traction. Ø postpones a mandated part of Obamacare; no one gets upset enough to act. Those public policy decisions which Congress will not enact will be instituted by fiat. No more coal powerplants. Ethanol mandates. Mandatory unions for health employees. No voter identification. It reminds me of The Once and Future King, in which young Arthur visits the world of the ants, in which everything not prohibited is mandatory.
It also reminds me of Animal Farm, when the pigs join with the rest of the oppressors and party on. Please go look up these old classics.
We need a bill of particulars such as in our Declaration.
Hmm. How did that American revolution get started, now? What will be our modern Boston Tea Party?
Thoughts, anyone?

If we the people can see and understand what Obama is up to, why can´t the Republicans in leadership positions get it? They are toothless old men gnawing on their last piece of political theater. How long will these "investigations to nowhere" go on? How long will Harry Reid be able to table any bill sent to him from the House? How long will John McCain praise the qualities of Hillary Clinton, the very woman who denied security to American embassies? How long will Obama´s lies go unchallenged? How pathetic is an opposition party that allows a president to get away with such blatant overreach? Until Republicans treasure the Constitution more than they treasure their own policitcal backsides, nothing will change. Politicians are destroying the blood, sweat and tears of millions of Americans because they fear to challenge this would-be dictator. Shame on them.

Heard my former Congressman (before redistricting) on local talk radio this morning, Rep. Frank Wolf, talk about the lack of interest by RepublicanHhouse Leadership in having a special committee look into Benghazi so that ther is one committee focused on that horror - not several going all over the place.

Our founders designed three branches to check and balance each other but now, nothing. I am more disgusted with the House Leadership for allowing Obama to get away with his abuse of power that Nixon could only have dreamed of. Yes, indeed #14, the articulate black man as president and one wonders why his supporters are fanning the fires of racial grievance - in the yaer 2013...

Obama has been a Constitutional crisis since he came on the scene. It began with his eligibility. Sheriff Joe has since proved he´s a fraud. Since something that fundamental can´t get Congress to at least hold hearings then we´re stuck with him. All we can try to do is to minimize the damage. If keeping him buried in scandals will help then great. However, I´m afraid he just uses them as cover.

The problem is we already know. You know, I know. A vast swath of the nation knows.

Washington doesn´t care. Doesn´t care that we know.

Washington is exulting in finally being set free to do as it wishes.

And they have men under arms who will obey them to the last instead of obeying the Constitution.

Take a stand

DEFUND OBAMACARE….

This is our last stand…please sign this petition at the link below and pass it on….

Senators Lee, Cruz, Paul are leading the charge to defund Obamacare…

Please sign the petition at the link and call your senators and congressmen…

If death panels, the government having direct debit access to your bank accounts, a government takeover of 1/6 of the economy, spying on you and other losses of your freedoms, the iRS running your healthcare…are chilling to you…then sign this petition, make a few calls..make yourself heard and pass this on.

http://www.dontfundobamacare.c...

On October 1st, millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare and could lose access to their doctors and be forced to pay higher premiums and higher taxes. But there’s still time to stop it. Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare if they refuse to fund it.

Sign the petition and tell Congress: Don’t Fund Obamacare!

The road to hell, now known as Obamacare, …..is not paved with good intentions…..It passed on Christmas Eve through threats, blackmail and dirty deals…

Make a difference….Sign the petition…Voice your dismay…..And pass it on…

I would say that the inept dude was concentrating on controlling the US citizens and the ones he can´t use controlling doubletime while allowing Putin to run all over him--Putin didn´t dare do the rearming of Cur George Bush or blatantly taking in our political debris like Snowden (another laugh-Snowden the moral purist in Russia!)

But then in comes the communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis and we may see that obaMao is doing it on purpose. And their was a time that the o-man said in frustration that he had found "you can´t change it from the inside".

The difference in socialism and communism is? The legacy of a the o-man and our democrat party is a dark one.

It seems that the current GOP leadership is more concerned in keeping their own jobs that doint anything for the average American. All they seem to do is NOT doing anything that might upset some set of voters. There is no one who will step forward and actually LEAD. And that is why I have continually advocated that we, the people, stand up and exercise our 2nd Amendment rights. But, what we desperately need is a handful of fearless men and women to come forward and LEAD us in overthrowing this tyranical government and return to the type of country that was intended. And we can do it if enough of us have the courage to do so.

Several posters, starting with #4 echo my feelings of anger, frustration and helplessness. We can moan and complain on the blogs, write and write our congress-people, vote and have our votes stolen, and still this communist beast gets away with breaking our laws and urinating on our constitution.

Where are the people we elected to stop such behavior? Sitting in their ivory tower with a 10% approval rating. As long as they juggle their Santa Clause act and their kumbaya singing with the “people back home,” we will continue to slide into the Marxist sink hole.

re #4 -- my Answer to your Q is:

90% of congress has been either framed or is guilty of trespasses that the O administration has at their disposal to use as blackmail. So all we conservatives get is a bit of blustering/posturing but no beef. Same could be said for the Dems who are closer to the middle.

Our only answer is Term Limits & a whole new congress that can´t be bought/blackmailed into silence. We have to have a grass roots (i.e. Tea Party) swell that puts the new representatives in their seats with the campaign commitment to immediately legislate Term Limits.

I see no other way to save America. And it´s a long shot.

If the unlawful overthrow of the US Government has already happened (and anyone paying attention knows that it has via voter fraud and Tea Party suppression), is the "Violent" overthrow still a crime ?

Or....is it just too nit-picky to worry about that when the last great hope for human liberty is circling the drain ???

#33 echoes a question that´s been on my mind: what is the duty of a citizen when their republic has been seized by dictators?

To my mind the socialist totalitarians, of both parties, have broken the social contract and I no longer owe alliegence or obedience to their unlawful edicts. We will continue to live our lives and when or if we bump into bureaucratic regulatory enforcers we will not comply. We will feign ignorance, be slothful in our lack of response, deny, and delay. No government hack will be allowed on our property without a warrant. We will defend our land, our liberty, and our Faith.

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/18/2014 7:03:28 PM     Post Reply
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "hellbent" on passing amnesty legislation, and other GOP leaders are signaling to donors and lobbyists that they also want to pass legislation this Congress, even though attempting to do so would depress the GOP base and create divisions within the party ahead of 2014´s midterm elections that could give Republicans control of Congress. According to the Wall Street Journal, Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was "hellbent on getting this done this year." After he met with President Barack Obama at the White House in February, Boehner said that

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Hillary Clinton´s New Book Title

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used. By another former secretary of State. In 1983, Cyrus Vance, who served as secretary of State

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions. It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them. But what about the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of

They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.” The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
