Obama Declares His Executive Power Supreme

with 5 comments

The arrogance of Barack Obama apparently knows no limit as he attempts to move the country into uncharted territory.

It seems the community organizer turned president has decided that America can get along just fine without three branches of government.

With his Socialist agenda stalled in Congress, Obama and his den of thieves are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities.

Americans have already made it crystal clear they don’t want what Obama is selling, yet the president is prepared to act on his own without Congress or the American people.

The former ballerina, Rahm Emanuel confirmed that the White House is reviewing a list of executive orders and directives “to get the job done across a front of issues.”

Even Obama’s number one cheerleader, the New York Times is concerned, not about a tyrant in the White House, but that overreaching executive orders could leave Obama open to criticism and be subject to future challenges in Congress.

‘But Mr. Obama has to be careful how he proceeds because he has been critical of both Mr. Clinton’s penchant for expending presidential capital on small-bore initiatives, like school uniforms, and Mr. Bush’s expansive assertions of executive authority, like the secret program of wiretapping without warrants.”

In Obama’s rush to become supreme dictator, he is conveniently forgetting about the little roadblock known as the separation of powers. You would think that an alleged Harvard Constitutional scholar would remember such an important piece of information.

“The role of the President under the U.S. Constitution is not to make laws, but simply to execute the laws passed by Congress. Article I, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution begins: ‘All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.’ If the Constitution mandates that ‘all’ law-making powers reside in the Congress, then it stands to reason none is left for the President. The President’s job is that ‘he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ under Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.”

This makes it clear that the job of the chief executive is to ensure that laws made by actual law makers are carried out.

Obama has already used his State of the Union address to bushwhack the Supreme Court with what amounts to a full scale strike. A cowardly act when you consider the fact they would be unable to respond.

In true Obama style, his plan is to use the time that the Senate is in recess to make mass appointments. We can only imagine what leftist nominees he has in mind. The one sure guarantee is none will qualify for even the lowest level security clearance.

One interesting question yet to be answered is will members of Congress just stand by and let Obama assume their power? No doubt this would be acceptable to Obama since his goal is to rule the country by executive proclamation.

Well, at least until his dictator gig kicks in.

Impeach Obama Billboard Grabbing Attention

with 3 comments

A controversial billboard along Highway 41 is catching people’s attention. It calls for President Obama to be removed from office.

The spot, near the Oshkosh Correctional Institute, is also becoming a popular spot for motorists to pull over and snap a picture.

“The sign kind of struck me as being very forceful. I was driving up to Green Bay this morning and saw it. It just surprised me that a sign like that would be out there, that blatant,” said Gary Fox, of Waukesha.

Fox said he agrees with the ‘Impeach Obama’ billboard. The tagline is: ‘America’s small businesses are failing, help us spread the message.’

“I just think what Obama is doing and the whole administration and the Democratic Congress is just bad for business when you look at the deficits and everything they’re doing,” said Fox.

Republicans and Democrats both say the sign does grab your attention; they just disagree on whether it serves any purpose.

Barack Obama Names Islamic Envoy

with 3 comments

What? No Christian Envoy?

Of course there is, but which likely lad is it – Reverend Wright, Reverend Al Sharpton or Reverend Jesse Jackson?

Reaching out to Muslims around the world, President Barack Obama used a taped video address on Saturday to make the surprise announcement that Rashad Hussein, deputy associate White House counsel, will serve as a special U.S. envoy to the 57-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference.

Obama made the announcement about his pan-Islamic overture to delegates at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum, an annual event hosted by the Saban Center at Brookings and the Government of Qatar.

The OIC calls itself “the collective voice of the Muslim world,” working “to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony among various people of the world.”

“Appointing a special envoy to the OIC is an important part of the president’s commitment to engaging Muslims around the world based on mutual respect and mutual interest,” an administration official said.

As much trouble as Obama is having with the “57 US States” you would think that he might appoint a special envoy to the American people.

Little Barry statue heads back to school

leave a comment »

The promise to move the Barry Soetoro (Barack Obama) statue is coming true.

The Central Jakarta administration said they will move the controversial “Little Barry” statue from its current location at Taman Menteng in Central Jakarta to state elementary school SDN 01 Menteng next week.

“We are currently discussing with officials from the school and its alumni association,” city spokesman Cucu Ahmad Kurnia told reporters Friday. “We hope the move will happen next week.”

US President Barack Obama attended a Muslim elementary school and was indoctrinated by Islamic teachings for almost two years when he spent part of his childhood in Jakarta.

Erected by the Jakarta-based Friends of Obama Foundation in December last year, the statue, which resembles Obama as a boy, recently sparked wide public criticism for insulting the nation’s pride.

On Wednesday, the Central Jakarta District Court held a hearing to try a class action lawsuit by five plaintiffs representing 50,000 members of the “Take down the Barack Obama statue from Menteng Park” group on Facebook.

Although appreciating the administration’s plan to remove the statue, one of the plaintiffs Heru Nugroho said the group would go ahead with its lawsuit saying the statue didn’t deserve a place at the park and should be immediately removed.

“We will only withdraw the lawsuit if the city administration publicly apologizes for its one-sided decision to permit the statue,” said Nugroho.

The world is quickly discovering what a total fraud Barack Obama is as indicated by his falling popularity in the US and around the world.

Obama Has Lost 4 Million Jobs

leave a comment »

After one full year in office, the results of Barack Obama’s jobs stimulus program are finally in. In the 12-month period starting with February 2009 through January 2010, the nation saw a net loss of 4.022 million jobs, according to the latest figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov). The unemployment rate stands at 9.7%, a full 2% higher than it was when Obama took office. And the only solution that Obama seems to have is to throw another $100 billion into another failed jobs stimulus package.

He still finds himself in the catch-22 of defending the results of the previous stimulus package and yet professing the urgent need for a second one. The American people were fooled by the rhetoric last year. It is increasingly evident that they will not be fooled again.

Given the results of recent elections in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, it certainly appears that they are no longer supportive of the Democrats’ policy proposals.

Obama and others in his administration still claim that his policies are working as intended and that they have saved or created anywhere from 600,000 to 2 million jobs (depending on what day it is and who is speaking). So if that is true then the true job losses would have to be from 4.6 million to 6 million in order to net out at the 4 million job loss figured provided by the BLS. If that is an example of his policies working as intended then it is really no wonder why the American people have started electing candidates who do not support those policies.

There are no easy answers to the question of how to create more jobs, but clearly throwing more money at the problem has not worked for Obama, just as it did not work for Bush. One thing that is very clear though is that employers are worried about what more is to come from this administration. Fearing a federal mandate to provide health coverage for all employees or face still fines and penalties for failing to do so is certainly a deterrent for some companies to hire more employees. Fearing huge increases in energy bills is another. And fearing increased interest costs and inflation due to a ballooning national debt is still another.

Those fears are justified given the reckless healthcare reform package, cost-increasing cap-and-trade bill and deficit-ballooning budget which have been proposed by Obama and his fellow Democrats. Reducing those fears will be the best way to increase jobs. For employers, the decision to hire new employees is always a long-term one, but before making that decision there must be a high level of predictability about the future.

With so many disastrous policy proposals on the horizon, employers cannot make any solid long-term plans, including those regarding hiring new employees. By now Obama and the Democrats should have learned that lesson, but given their recent statements and actions, clearly they have not. As a result, the near-term outlook for jobs looks just as bleak as the near-term past.

Obama Bows to Tampa Mayor

leave a comment »

What is wrong with this guy?

Maybe it’s not so much of something being wrong with Obama as much as there is very little right about him.

Let’s see, first it was the Saudi King, then the Japanese Emperor, then the Chinese Premier and now the Mayor of Tampa?

Could this be a direct result of Miz Michelle requiring him to bow to her?

Whatever the reason I never tire of watching the stand-up comedy of the Obamanation. This particular act shows what happens  when you don’t have a backbone.

Al Gore and Osama bin Laden Become Strange Bedfellows

with 2 comments

The unlikely combination of  eco-terrorist  and Islamic terrorist join forces against freedom.

Global warming fanatics have a new and unwelcome ally, Osama bin Laden. Unlike enviro-leftists, the terror master recognizes that the green agenda can cripple the U.S. economy.

In the Obama worldview, fighting climate change will “finally make clean energy the profitable kind of energy in America.” In the Osama worldview, it will “bring the wheels of the American economy” to a halt.

The president spoke those words to Congress last week during his State of the Union message; the head of al-Qaida was delivering his latest rant for broadcast to his followers.

The president and the Democrats running Congress fail to see the dangers that environmentalist extremism poses to the U.S. But bin Laden has concluded it is a powerful weapon that can destroy us.

The Saudi-born patriarch of Islamist terrorism, from whatever cave he currently calls home, devoted his entire latest audiotape message to global warming. “Talk about climate change is not an ideological luxury but a reality,” bin Laden declared. “All of the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis.”

Bin Laden even bashed ex-President George W. Bush for opposing the Kyoto Protocol at the behest of big business; he must have gotten hold of the Democratic National Committee’s talking points.

How do we prevent the promised worldwide calamity of temperatures going up and up? “Drastic solutions” are in order according to the reclusive al-Qaida chief, as opposed to “solutions that partially reduce the effect of climate change.”

The world must “stop consuming American products,” he advised, and “we should stop dealings with the dollar and get rid of it as soon as possible.”

That will have “grave ramifications,” bin Laden admitted, “but it is the only means to liberate humanity from slavery and dependence on America.” Doing so would have the added bonus of hurting U.S. operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, he added.

So it looks like the old saying, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” has come true making allies of Al Gore and Osama bin Laden. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.
