On 14 January 2014, Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama all but announced his dictatorship to the world. At a Presser photo-op, Obama announced the irrelevancy of Congress when he stated firmly:
“One of the things I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.”
“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward…”
Our US Congress (you know…the House Representatives and Senators we elected to keep our country’s foundational structure intact) have betrayed the people almost as badly as has Obama. Obama betrayed Americans by lying about virtually everything he told them before his second term “election.” Congress has betrayed us by utilizing their 3-Monkey policy: ‘See nothing…Hear nothing…Say nothing‘.
I have been writing that Obama planned his dictatorship well before he was elected and in 2008 when I wrote in my column “Is the USA Ready for an American Stalin?”: “After Obama is elected, all of his programs and people to keep him in power indefinitely — and to rid him of any and all opposition — will be firmly in place. You will not be able to vote him out of office. By the time he assumes the position of President of the United States it will already be too late. A democratic republic will last only so long as people of good will allow and fight for it. After they are gone — or removed — it is ended.”
I firmly believe that, without almost immediate action, we are almost to that point of irreversibility.
For some time now, Obama has been methodically nullifying the power of Congress and SCOTUS as co-equal branches of the US Federal Government. Now, he appears to be very close to making it official. Since Obama took the office as US President, he has been actively diminishing both the Legislative and Judicial branches of the federal government. He bypasses Congress with his own Executive Orders (many of which are patently illegal as they contradict the US Constitution and other US laws) and he and his Department of [In] Justice now regularly and often refuse to follow decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States if they disagree with them. The Obama syndicate members also refuse to follow and uphold any and all laws they don’t like…and those that thwart their ongoing criminal activities.
Note: A President’s refusal to follow the US Constitution and other US laws is an illegal use of his power. Said POTUS must first go through a series of analyses to determine if said law in unconstitutional.
Since the tyrant took office, he has been quietly (except to some of us) preparing his rise to power from which he will not allow himself to be removed. Yesterday, he floated his trial balloon to see how the country would accept it. Reliably, the media largely ignored it. Will you? Will we?
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”—Ephesians 6:10-23
