Reading part three will not be easy for some. Truth is hard to wrap our minds around, specially in a world of lies. It takes a certain kind of patriot, both intellectual and fearless… the kind who identifies with words like Liberty, honor, responsibility, self worth and self determination…
So, first we are going to take a look at Obama’s heavy-handed changes, as he promised, the final overhaul by presidential mandates, the image and likeness of the Progressive ideologue. It will, and is designed to be, the final dismantling of our Constitution, the disintegration of our so valued civil liberties, and the domination and control of our free enterprise system… and it doesn’t take a Monarch, a King, or an Emperor to accomplish that task. All it takes is a weak-natured and ignorant populous. A populous grown and nurtured to be dependent, dependent on big government for sustenance. So know this, if you have gotten this far, more than likely you are one of only three percent of the population, and that alone should shake your reality to the very core….
Here in America, in the year 2014, an elitist ruling class of bankers and international companies can lobby the Beltway into total submission, by hook or crook. The process tramples on our rights and civil liberties for their personal gain, and they charge us for that service with a 17.3 trillion dollar debt. The Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air, and charges us for that service… Finally, a well hidden Progressive process that took generations to fulfill has manifested itself into the White House, and sits on both sides of the isle like multicolored chameleons. Indeed, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing, and true traitors. America’s Constitution is being drawn and quartered, and America is considered the spoils of war, a war that is being waged against us from the inside out…
A case against America’s changing nature…
“Why me, why does this have to happen to me?” some Americans are saying. Well, as every question gives a counter answer of like kind and like mind, it is a universal law. Tony Robbins answered it well, “Because that is all you deserve, sir. You are a turkey.” And that is true enough my friend. Tyranny comes to those who are indifferent, week natured, uneducated, indolent, selfishly motivated, and so, easily distracted and controlled. And doesn’t that describe most all Americans today? It is almost laughable, if it wasn’t so tragic. So indignant at the mere suggestion, the only thing really growing in this nation, other than crime and ego, is the Federal Government.
Seems getting what you deserve is a universal law…
Now that we have given up our American birthright, even our beloved Boy Scouts have fallen to the Progressive onslaught… Seems that there are many, far too many, who wouldn’t care if our American symbol of a bald eagle be replaced with the North American Turkey, as some fools proposed even when Washington took office. I’m sure the Boy Scouts would take exception, but most wouldn’t even notice. I thought perhaps a vulture might be a good symbol for the new America, but they fly too high, they see too far… And as our country is stripped of our rights, traditions and heritage, while we slept, we are no longer considered liberators, but terrorists, hated by the world, but then that label also describes the Patriot, so I’m told, and the Veteran too, under the powers of the Patriot Act and the NDAA. Perhaps we should pluck our new turkey symbol too, before putting him on our useless paper money, and serve him up well-done for the New World Order. Sorry to say, but we can’t afford the stuffing, as everything is gone out of Fort Knox. Yes, pathetically funny, don’t you agree? We Americans can laugh in the face of death…
Nope, no more silver certificate, no more gold standard, we are now incorporated, and usury is our new god. Our standard-certificate is your ability to pay taxes, even the hidden inflation tax is your fault, and why? Because most all Americans don’t know what the hell I’m talking about! Most care nothing about debt because they think debt normal as they are hocked to the gills, they slave on every day to pay the interest. It is a debt you can never repay, nor could even your great grand kids. Debt slavery is your world; your true American heritage. It was stolen from you, from all of us, and really, so what? Those who could actually save America are arguing over another quarter in the minimum wage, or that your welfare check doesn’t buy the same amount of Coco Krispies. So, because the media is blind, deaf, and muted, I have only my memory to serve me. Lets reiterate, for old time’s sake, the last precious moments of our Republic’s death throes, as memory serves…
So lets take a look together…
Without consent or advice of the U.S. Senate, as is stipulated by the Constitution, President Obama appointed many cabinet level positions. They were given far-reaching authority and independent funding, and they were called Czars. Also, without Senate approval, Obama made illegal recess appointments for other members of his cabinet. He did this by personal declaration, as a proper monarch would, declaring the U.S. Senate was in recess, when in fact no such declaration was ever made by them.
Yes, a bile taste for a Liberty-minded Constitutionalists, an Oath Keeper, but what he did next was not only unconscionable, but I must admit, was pure calculated genius, the kind that would make Sigmund proud. Progressives pushed to pass healthcare legislation in Congress, knowing full well it was unconstitutional. Despite a federal judge declaring the entire law as such, unconstitutional, and ordering that it not be implemented, Obama and his administration continued to use strong-armed tactics, the power of the executive branch, to carry on its execution. In the process, he recently violated the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, the right to freedom of religion, as he ordered Christian schools and Churches to provide both contraception and abortion-inducing pills to employees, as the bill requires. No immediate regard for the religious teachings of these Christian institutions were recognized until the threat of litigation and a resounding “No way!” reverberated from them. Now he is looking into the prospect of directing, by executive order, insurance companies to flip this bill. Government dictates to private enterprise… Another sweeping change, as promised, as it will inadvertently be passed on to the taxpayer… Just this alone is an impeachable offense, and yet so amazingly genius!
Amazing, because one statistic showed that 53 percent of so called Christian women voted for Obama his first term. Wonder what they are thinking now, being responsible for 3000 abortions per day, and it is good to invest in stem cell research now that there are plenty of fetuses around, with permission from Obama to continue using them in their studies, of course. Seems they were about as Christian as Obama, and they do deserve each other. I think there is a special place in hell for the recreational birth control type of abortionists, the kind we collectively need to finance with our tax dollars, it seems. And what is a Christian to do but put their lives in God’s hands, and give Him all responsibility for their actions, and why, because they are now sorry? Not much, as Obama now has a second term.
I have always considered it a treason against the great republic of human nature, to make any man’s virtues the means of deceiving him.” -Samuel Johnson
Though the US Senate refused to pass Cap and Trade, Obama has bypassed the process by ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to implement key portions of the bill by regulation, under his personal direction. In defiance of the will of the people, Congress, and our Constitution, the EPA is bending to his will, and coal-burning power plants are now considered to be in noncompliance. Economists are in agreement, and Obama has admitted it is true, that these Presidential mandates will force energy prices to skyrocket, as factories continue to close. If it wasn’t for the growing government jobs, the statistics would be far worse…
The unprecedented moratorium on offshore drilling or exploration on both Pacific and Atlantic coasts, and some parts of the Gulf of Mexico, is a severe punch in the stomach for the Oil Patch, and our will to be energy independent. Yes, the insider wizard Soros played his cards just right, amazingly selling and buying at the perfect time. Obama had prohibited new drilling on federal lands in any US state, and the Department of the Interior (DOI) is in direct defiance of several court orders. One that really hit home in my Louisiana was the ignored court order of Federal Judge Martin Feldman of New Orleans who declared that the DOI had absolutely no authority to issue a moratorium, even declaring the DOI in contempt. And though the administration is emphatic that it is complying, drilling permits were tied up in new nightmares of red tape, and the effect is the same.
But there were winners too, if you follow the paper trail. In the very wake of the BP Oil spill, Obama and his friend George Soros tried to help Brazil build a deep-water infrastructure off their coast. As he inhibited drilling here, he authorized loans to both Brazil and Mexico oilfields, so that they could sell more oil to us. Obama bowed to Saudi for a reason, and Venezuela and Libya will see to it that we are dependent on foreign oil… He refused to approve the Keystone Pipeline from Canada to the United States, and that decision belonged to Congress, not Obama. Obama took jobs, and used a tragedy to make money for his friends.
By abdication, Obama refused to enforce the laws of immigration. By proclamation, he declared our southern border open, and cleverly did this by making certain areas of Federal land in states with the highest potential of illegal immigration off-limit to federal, state and local authority, and this was not considered proprietary knowledge. The path was announced, and even diagrammed. Drugs now move unchecked, with illegal’s having an open door and free reign there, as does the potential for it to be used as a corridor for the infiltration of foreign terrorists. He ordered our border patrol to not arrest most all illegal immigrants, and has stopped most all deportation. In effect, his so-called “Dream Act” bypasses Congressional approval, which has been given sole authority over all immigration.
But our minds still remember when The President and his attorney Eric Holder betrayed their oath of office by joining forces with foreign countries like Mexico, Columbia, and Bolivia in lawsuits against Alabama, Arizona and Georgia to stop the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Just this alone is an impeachable offense, and yet he still sits at his desk in the Oval Office, safe and seemingly secure in the knowledge that he is above the law.
The Federal Communications Commission, under Obama’s orders, wanted them to give him complete control of the internet, with a “kill switch” for the absolute authority to shut down the internet, and solely at his discretion. The US Supreme Court was decisive, and their decision final: “The FCC has no Constitutional authority to direct or manage the internet.” The two proposals, Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA), and the Project Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) were finally withdrawn because of American opposition. But Obama has now announced that he is about to sign an international treaty that will bypass Congressional approval, and give him the same authority. This threat is to Article 2, Section 2 of our Constitution… and this is in the same vein as he and his Progressive Clinton proposes in regard to the United Nations Small arms treaty, and the UN Law of the Sea treaty that are very unlikely to achieve Senate approval.
When Obama declared that the Defense of Marriage Act, passed by Congress, was unconstitutional, he said that this Constitutional mandate would be ignored. He declared himself above the law, in contempt of the law, and more powerful than Congress or the Supreme court. He then declared that the Justice Department will not defend it (the Marriage Act) against lawsuits. And so, as Obama is obligated to enforce and defend laws adopted by Congress, unless declared unconstitutional by the US Supreme court, this is an act of treason. Just this alone is an impeachable offense, and yet there he sits. He must be right… Furthermore, Obama’s administration also refused to enforce laws against voter intimidation. Federal law requires all states to purge all voter registration lists of deceased voters, and those fraudulently registered as well. The Justice Department is refusing to let states enforce laws already on the books that require proof of identity at the polls. This renders Congress, the Federal Judiciary, the will of the people, and our Constitution, irrelevant. Just this alone is an impeachable offense, as it is an act of high treason. Treason, not because our voting process has been compromised, but that he knowingly let it happen to insure his stay in office. Oh, that’s a stretch?
Better sit down…
Acting through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, a sting operation was implemented in secret. They coerced law-abiding gun-store owners along our southern border to supply weapons to what they called “straw buyers,” who were expected to deliver them to Mexico’s drug lords. After an investigation, however, it was determined that fraudulent data was created with the intent at showing that the United States were shipping weapons to Mexico drug dealers. To this day this bogus data is being used to justify new gun control regulations that will limit American citizens the right to bear arms. By arming our enemies, this is an act of high treason, and yet, they are refusing to cooperate with investigative committees in the House of Representative, even defying Congressional subpoenas. Just this alone is an impeachable offense, and yet there he sits. His handlers must be powerful indeed.
Though preemptive war, is not a war, per se, but considered a police action, unless there is a declaration of war, approved by Congress, every confrontation since WW2 is not considered preemptive. How clever! And now, Obama has taken this opportunity to new heights. Congress gave the President, under the War Powers Act, immediate authority for action, and without Congressional approval if our national security is threatened, or even one of its citizens. Well, who would determine this threat? Obama. Does Benghazi ring a bell? How about Libya’s civil war? Obama based his decision on both a UN and an Arab League resolution, both outside of American jurisdiction. This is traitorous, and this alone is an impeachable offense. But wait… Testimony of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, March 7, 2012, told Senators that the President no longer needs Congressional approval to take our country to war as required by Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution. So long as it is approved by the United Nations or NATO, a resolution he cited that gives this Arab League resolution power over our American sovereignty, and Congress, that power he would now have. But wait, recently passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), gives the President the sole and primary authority to use the military to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil, by his discretion, and without due process. What is amazing is that this bill was overwhelmingly passed by Congress, and it was admitted that few had read it. That the White House include this language at the last minute is a conspiracy, and is traitorous, and just this alone is an impeachable offense. But wait…
Another unconstitutional executive order soon followed this, called the National Defense Resource Preparation order. Previous Presidents have signed similar orders, but this one included language that gave Obama the sole ability to declare martial law in peacetime. It gave him, granted him, the ability to nationalize manufacturing, banks, insurance companies, food production, and all free enterprise. From fuel to transportation, now even our Obama-healthcare is under his dominion, and our Constitution gives him no authority to do this. Zero, as it is designed, and history will attest, it is a transition from a free enterprise to a socialist economy by executive authority, with our Constitution unilaterally abolished. This is an impeachable offense, and is high treason.
“This principle is old, but true as fate. Kings may love treason, but the traitor hate. -Thomas Dekker
When I was a little boy I played ball with my dad in our small New Orleans back yard. I mentioned that the little black kids who lived across the street were calling me names.
“What did they call you?” he asked with a smile.
“They called me an A-hole.” I said, rather upset.
I then missed the ball, and ran for it as it bounced off our chain-linked fence.
“Hay, A-hole” said my father in a stern voice.
I turned around and looked at him.
“Are you an A-hole?” he said.
“No!” I said emphatically.
“Then why did you turn around?” he laughed.
The following is from a report written and released by the Judiciary Committee in 1974 in the aftermath of the Watergate crisis.
“The duty of a President to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution” to the best of his ability includes the duty not to abuse his powers or transgress their limits– not to violate the rights of citizens, such as those guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, and not to act in derogation of powers elsewhere by the Constitution.
Not all presidential misconduct is sufficient to constitute grounds for impeachment. There is a further requirement– substantially. In deciding whether this further requirement has been met, the facts must be considered as a whole in the context of the office, not in terms of separate or isolated events. Because impeachment of a President is a grave step for the nation, it is predicated only upon conduct seriously incompatible with either the constitutional form and principles of our government or the proper performance of constitutional duties of the presidential office.”
But there is more…
He used taxpayer dollars to bail out autoworker unions for both GM and Chrysler. He mandated the end of the welfare-to-work requirements passed by congress. He gave $800 billion stimulus cash for jobs that did not exist, and the money remains unaccountable. For the first time in American history we have a downgraded credit rating. He shut down American drilling while promoting drilling in other countries with far worse environmental records, further damaging our economy. Proposed to bankrupt the coal industry and shut down the last lead mine in the US. In a debate with Hillary Clinton in 2008 he said he would never force people to buy health insurance. In that same campaign he promised that no family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase. Said he would increase security along the U.S.-Mexican Border, and then stopped construction of a “virtual fence,” and the approved money that was to be used, was given to other projects. Cash for Clunkers. Authorized both assassinations and drone strikes on U.S. citizens abroad, without due process. Appointed Van Jones to be “Green Jobs Czar.” Appointed Anita Dunn, Maoist, as White House Communication’s director. Appointed ZPG advocate, John Holdren, as Science Czar. ZPG, Zero Population Control, advocates the forced sterilization of women at 14.
Sued states that wanted to enforce federal immigration laws. Blocked construction of Keystone Pipeline, and forced Canada to sell more to China. Flip flopped on gay marriage. Sued all states who tried to stop election fraud with voter IDs. Would not investigate the voter intimidation of the Black Panthers. Voted to end the influence of lobbyists in Washington, then promoted it while in office. Said that he would let all no-emergency bills be viewed by the American public for five days, and broke that promise after election. Promoted “Arab Spring” that deposed secular government in Africa, and opened the door to Islamic extremists, and yet, refused to give assistance to Iranian seculars. Put Catholics and Evangelicals on the terrorists watch list. Mandated NASA from science to the “Muslim outreach” program. Gave the IRS unprecedented power, with 16,000 new agents, with additional mandates of punishment for non compliance, and harass conservative businesses. When GM was bailed out, Obama re-compensated unions, and not the investors, as is the law. Shut down drilling with an unconstitutional moratorium, while attempting to lend money for infrastructure, by way of China, Brazil’s PETROBRAS. Made public the names of every Seal who killed Osama bin Laden, and 22 were shot down a short time later in Afghanistan. Established the “kill list,” of people who can be killed on sight, and made the operation public. Implemented “Attack Watch” for anyone to report anti-Obama anti Progressive thoughts on the internet.
And the unconscionable act of spying on U.S. citizens, without due process. The collection of data from emails and phone records, and then, as if by accident, sending all of it to Israel. And not one person coming to task for those actions shows the true scope of this betrayal, and the power of those who control us.
“A wise and fugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.” -Thomas Jefferson
