This video of Dick Morris on “Hannity” makes a powerful point: Can a President ignore Federal law and the Constitution for poltical gain?
Morris makes a great point when he notes that the “Chicago politics” of illegal bribery via power-mongering cannot be allowed to extend into the Federal realm. It is bad enough in Chicago, do we want a nation run in this way?
I recently had a bit of an argument with a friend on Facebook about Obama. She said that he was a nincompoop who deserves little in the form of histrionics to define him. Basically, she was saying that Obama was a foolish “light weight”. But can we say that about a man who is willing to use and misuse every Presidental power to irrevocably change our nation? I think it would be a mistake to underestimate either his radicalism or his ability as given to him by the people and a Congress with the power to enforce his will.
A President who is willing to break the law is dangerous. A President steeped in radicalism with an “Get it done for Marxism” credo is something that should be challenged. Sure, we cannot assume that he has pure Dictatorial power, he doesn’t, yet. But he is setting a precident–if you can get it done, do it and disregard the electorate.
These people know a few things that are pretty terrifying: They know that if they control Congress, they can pass just about anything and disregard ethics, law, or future challenge. They hope to pack the courts with radicals who will support their changes. They also know that the media will support them, or in the very least ignore their vicious attack on America. They also assume weakness from their opponents; the Republicans are fearful of full-blown Conservatism, as evidenced by the faux breed such as David Brooks and David Frum, or for that matter “consensus builders” like Lindsey Graham or John McCain.
Will the media pursue a scandal greater than any under Bush? I highly doubt it. Will Republicans charge Barack Obama with “high crimes and misdemeanors”? Or do they fear the media calling them racists? Personally, I wonder.
Nation is greater than individual power or gain. The people are greater than the elected. But given the power we have so wrongly provided them, Congress and the President feel they are Kings and Queens, not Representatives.
We need to change their minds. We need to let them know the fear of misusing their offices at the ballot box. And once ejected, we must enforce the rule of law and monitor our new policians closely. We cannot affford to resume our long sleep, or that sleep will become a coma.
This video does an incredible job of explaining how our Government should work, and the dangers of mob rule, anarchy, and Oligarchy/Dictatorship.
It is interesting how the Left has conveniently called Fascism a movement of the Right, when the German Socialist Party was a party of Government control. This video clears this up well, explaining that Government power/control has extremes, with the American/early Roman “Republic” in the middle, granting little power to Government, and extensive power to the individual.
What we are seeing right now in our Country is an attempt to destroy the Republic. If that occurs, the Left wins. Even if there were a point of Anarchy, those on the Left feel that they will assume total power at some point. This can only occur if we dash the basis of Constitutional limits on Government power.
This is why it is so important to repeal Obamacare, as it extends Federal power to a point where it is greater than that of the States, imposing a “right” to control what people purchase. If you think that this would be the end of attempts to assume control over the electorate, guess again. It is simply a “shot across the bow” or a “Trial balloon”.
Suppose that a future Federal Government decides to make you buy solar panels, or an electric car, or says that when you “buy” energy they have the right to “monitor” your thermostat? Nothing is impossible if the Government extends it’s rights to force you to purchase what they deem as correct. Personal choice? It will be a thing of the past.
You have heard the claims by members of the media and from certain members of the Left (not that the two aren’t the same group at this point) that members of the Tea party are actually misguided nincompoops who don’t know a thing, but are simply expressing their feelings about a President of color.
In the above video, we find out just how smart many members of the Tea Party are. The Tea Party believes in the Constitution as the bedrock of what makes America what it is, while many politicians see it as just a Historical document, or in some cases as meaningless. Some even see it as a roadblock to “Change”–ahem, Mr. President?
I have strongly urged those who have never been to a Tea Party to experience one. Especially if you are a Democrat or Obama voter. Do not believe what you hear on the television, come experience it for yourself. You will find that much of what is said and done is mere Patriotism and love of country, coupled with a concern for the future of this great nation.
If you talk to the average Tea Partier you will likely be surprised at their knowledge of History and politics. Many of these people may be new to the Political world, but were always tried and true believers in History.
The Republican Congressman in this video can be blamed for his lack of knowledge about the Constitution, but few can quote it word for word. I don’t think this is needed. But, our Political leaders should know the basic tenets of what the Constitution says.
At least this man was allowed to speak. Can you imagine how quickly a Democrat Representative would have shut him down, ridiculed him, or had Union thugs scream and shout him down? When allowed to speak, the Tea Party seems remarkably sane in comparison, no?
This is one of the most informative videos exposing the black heart of some Democrats in Congress, and why we need to remove them at the ballot box. Frankly, it is similar to the United Nations calling out Israel and the United States for hate crimes while a good number of UN members still allow slavery, child prostitution, and female genital mutilation. This is not just the pot calling the kettle black, it is the pot calling the snow black.
Representative Steve Cohen’s words drip with hatred for the Tea Party, saying that it’s members are little more than Nazis and KKK members. Sigh, don’t these people ever get any new material?
As a defender of Israel I am getting pretty tired of the Liberal Jew who cares little about possible Genocide in Israel, while relishing the destruction of the United States via their loopy Marxist ideals. I know many great Jews who swear “never again” to the next holocaust, and understand how important the survival of the United States is.
Cohen is someone who needs to be removed from Congress for his phoney and ridiculous statements, and we can do it next time he is up for reelection. Mr. Cohen, we will not forget you or your words about the American people.
At one point Cohen talks about how he wished that he could shut up the protesters during the vote for Obamacare, then scoffed when a Republican challenged him by reminding him about this little thing called the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.
Cohen lets the cat out of the bag I think. He admits he hates America, wants to shut up those he disagrees with, and that he is willing to criticize any American that disagrees with Socialism. Poor Steve, he needs to get together with Sean Penn and they can slobber all over each other about Hugo Chavez.
Let them know Fear.
I couldn’t say it better myself. When I first watched this video, I found myself almost verbally saying out loud, “You’re right!” but of course I retrained myself. I wish that this man used his full name, but we do know his first name is “Jamal”. He should seriously run for office in my opinion, and I urge him to do so.
It constantly amazes me how Liberals/Progressives try to define Conservatives and Tea Party members as being uninformed. We are not uninformed. Just talk to any Conservative and ask them their opinion on any issue. They will give you a well thought out argument for their beliefs.
I think the reason for this is that we know the basis for greatness. Ronald Reagan knew this all too well, he knew that it was the greatness of the people that made America what it is. When he called the United States, “The Shining City on the Hill” it was not mere rhetoric. Jamal does not say it, but it sounds like he would define himself as a Reagan Conservative.
What worries the Democratic Party is that there are more people out there like Jamal than they dare recognize. They cannot understand why we do not willingly accept the yoke of Government. It is their own denial that forces them to demonize the American people. They cannot believe that so many disagree with their heavy-handed tactics, as their tiny inner circles are so completely opposite from us in Philosophy.
What do you do when the “Great Awakening” occurs among the American people? Perhaps you try to define them as radical or label them as racist, homophobic, sexist, or just plain dumb. It is their last hope of shaming some into voting for their legislative slavery. Will it work? I wouldn’t bet on it–but it is the only bet they have left.
It is Conservatives like Jamal that inspire others via their deep belief in the American “brand” of free and open Capitalism, Liberty, and Constitutional adherance that is truly revolutionary. Is it “progressing” to force failed Marxist principals upon the last and greatest Republic?When considered logically, can there be any other way of thinking but Conservatism? It not a “feeling” like Liberalism, it is based on tried and true principals. While some may disagree, and we welcome their debate, they truly have little chance of winning beyond forcing their beliefs upon us.
Much of Barack Obama’s life has been criticized as a Sham, and his actions seem to constantly reinforce people’s suspicions, be they real or fictitious.
Just look at the case of the “Birthers” who believe that Barack Obama was not born in the USA and hence is unable to hold that office. The Birthers should be a group that would be easy to shut up, simply put out your birth certificate to be examined by the media. The President has still not done this. He seems convinced that the word of a couple of Hawaiian croneys should be enough. They have sealed his records and refuse to let anyone look at them, stating it is for reasons of “identity theft”. Does anyone really think you could get away with pretending to be Barack Obama? Seriously?
The fact that the President’s greatest “Birther” detractor is a Democrat doesn’t help either, or that he has defended these records at the cost of over $200,000.
Just end this, Mr President. Shut them all up and get on with your failed Presidency. Why not?
The issue of the President’s college records are also up for speculation.
Perhaps the fact that “Dumb George Bush” had better grades at Yale than Al Gore and John Kerry make him worry.
What is more concerning is the fact that the Professors that Barrack Obama worked with state he was “never a Professor of Law”, and it also appears that he never published any while at Harvard, as would be required of an actual Editor of the Harvard Law Review, a position he appears to actually HAVE held.
Barack Obama seems to be a living sealed document, his only true records of achievement being his two autobiographies, and many believe he did not even write those.
And how was he viewed by his colleagues during his years as “Professor”? According to the highest tenured member of the Chicago Law school:
The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).
It seems that Barack Obama truly is a “self-made” man, or rather he made himself up.
