The fascist state of America

Free Republic

There comes a time in the course of human events that it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands that have connected them with another. America is fast hurtling toward that time.

The United States was founded on the republican principles of federalism (states’ rights) and representative government. Today’s government is “constitutional” in name only.

The undocumented usurper currently despoiling the peoples’ house has for six years shown utter disdain for the founding document. In a town hall meeting on Wednesday last, Barack Obama bragged that he has expanded his authorities “under executive action and prosecutorial discretion.”

But Article III of the Constitution lays out the chief executive’s authorities quite explicitly. There is no room for “expanding” them within the scope of the Constitution. The President is neither tasked with nor authorized to write law or change it. That falls solely under the scope of Congress, as outlined in Article I, Section 1. The executive’s role under Article III, Section 4 is to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

Obama’s True Enemy

Obamas-Enemy-List

CFP

Republicans, and conservatives that file into Tea Party meetings and rallies, Constitution Classes, and Libertarian gatherings, say time and time again that they are so tired of having to battle the failures of President Barack Obama.  His failed policies are nearly more than they can digest.

obama-finger

He fails to understand economics, his failed Obamacare program is destroying health care in America, he fails to understand the underlying reasons behind why the government shutdowns occurred, he has failed in the Middle Class and he has failed to bring anybody out of poverty.  Failure after failure after failure after failure.  He even fails to stand against an enemy determined to destroy us, fails to connect jihadism to Islam, and has failed to properly apply America’s might against an enemy he is unwilling to admit.

I am here to tell you that President Barack Obama has failed at nothing.  From his point of view, he is a total success.  He is, however, as accused, failing to name the enemy, as so many folks on the right-of-center accuse him of when it comes to the worldwide battle we see emerging around the globe.  However, who we see to be the enemy, and who he views to be the enemy, are two different things.

Obama to veto bill letting Congress weigh in on Iran deal

Free Republic

President Barack Obama would veto a bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate allowing Congress to weigh in on any deal the United States and other negotiating countries reach with Iran on its nuclear capabilities, the White House said on Saturday.

“The president has been clear that now is not the time for Congress to pass additional legislation on Iran. If this bill is sent to the president, he will veto it,” said Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House’s National Security Council…

Credit Where Due

Moonbattery

Obama comes off as an adolescent punk far out of his league. But you can’t call him a failure:

In the early days of the Fundamental Transformation, Rush Limbaugh took heat for hoping Obama failed. We would be passing along a vastly better country to the next generation if Rush’s hope had come true.

Spoken like the dictator that he is: “We’ve expanded MY authorities,” Obama Dares GOP, “Have a Vote … I Will Veto”

He’s a madman running amok

Note the royal “we.” America went from 200 years of “We the people” to “We, Obama” in the blink of an eye.

The internet, bullets, and now this — and that’s just today.

Obama Dares GOP: Go Ahead, ‘Have a Vote on Whether What I’m Doing Is Legal…I Will Veto’ | MRCTV (thanks to Van)

(Watch video at link.)

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Discussing opposition to his executive amnesty orders at an immigration town hall Wednesday, Obama said he would veto the vote because his actions are “the right thing to do”:

Obama to Ban AR-15 Bullets By Executive Action – Attempts a Back-Door Gun Ban

Gateway Pundit

Barack Obama is going to ban on 5.56 mm ammo.
The ammo is the most-used AR bullets in America.

Many call this Obama’s back-door gun ban.

The Washington Examiner reported:

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.

The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
