Obama Openly Hints at Dictatorship

Dictator Obama

In a speaking engagement that looked suspiciously like a campaign stump speech, on Wednesday, Barack Obama implied that if Republicans attempted to tie the debt ceiling to the budgetary negotiations, he might ignore them, stating “We’re not going to play that game.”  All along, Obama has shown a willingness to exceed his constitutional authority.  Since the Debt Ceiling debacle of 2011, there’s word circulating in leftist circles that under the 14th Amendment, there is some authority for the President to ignore Congress in order to satisfy the payment of our debts, but no such authority exists in the 14th Amendment.  This is a troubling proposition, and the fact that our Prevaricator-in-Chief  now makes these kinds of implications portends potentially lethal danger to our republic.  Obama has made little secret of the fact that he detests the prohibitions on excessive government authority in the US Constitution, but ladies and gentlemen, if he hasn’t gone too far already, this should be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back.

To help you understand what this ludicrous, malevolent narcissist has in mind, let’s first view his speech to the Business Roundtable on Wednesday.  The most interesting remarks come after the 13:00 mark, but the whole of the speech offers insight into the maniacal thinking of this man.  He is going to destroy this economy to exact his revenge, and none should be in the mood to let John Boehner make deals with this sort of mindset:

As to the proposition that the 14th Amendment provides some authority for the President to circumvent Congress, this is a preposterous claim.  The relevant sections of the Fourteenth Amendment states:

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article

Notice that section 4 was intended to deal specifically with war debt accrued by the Union in fighting against the confederacy during the civil war.  The leftists who advocate on behalf of section 4 as a proscription against a debt ceiling are lunatics.  It not only requires the setting aside of the context of the amendment, but also ignoring the subsequent section, that specifically empowers Congress to enact legislation pursuant to this amendment.

In Article I, Section 8, the following are to be found among the specifically enumerated powers of Congress:

The Congress shall have power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current coin of the United States;

Notice that all of these powers that are in fact granted to Congress in financial and fiscal matters fall within the context of the following statement, concluding Section 8:

;—And

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

There is no mention of a Presidential role in this process, apart from his ordinary Article II authority to veto or approve legislation.  Nothing in Article II provides the President authority to coin money, borrow money, or appropriate funds. No imaginary, tortured rationalizations of the 14th Amendment permit him to touch this apart from signing or vetoing legislation that comes before him. If he attempts what the leftists are suggesting, he is in open violation of the constitution, and this must be confronted.

Naturally, given the track record of Barack Obama, there’s little to suggest that he wouldn’t merely claim the authority, act on such basis, and then simply let Congress try to stop him in court.  This would essentially create a window in which we would be reliant upon John Boehner and the Republicans to stop him, but the tepid leadership we’ve seen to date suggests they would present no obstacle to this imperial president.

My friends, there is nothing so dangerous as a demagogue acting as chief of state, and his inclinations toward dictatorial actions provide plenty of cause for concern.  Not only must we rid ourselves of John Boehner, but we must also be willing to make a stand against this president in the name of the constitution.  Our nation is dying a slow death, but rather than acting responsibly, Barack Obama is rushing to be the first man to throw a shovel-full of dirt on its grave.  John Boehner is weak and tepid, a pallbearer to our premature national funeral, and he seems more concerned with his own political survival.  We are in deep trouble, but we must stand on behalf of our constitution, or risk losing it.

    Serious matter for sure. But…er…maybe his thinking and by progressives he’s surrounded by look at 14 th thusly…”for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion” of conservatives, tea partiers, and veterans. Opposing the administration of progressives, and congress of progressives, either dem or rep must certainly be insurrection, I guess.

    Mercy, hope the Roberts court doesn’t get to rule on it! Or any subsequent court with Obama appointments.

    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    The U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact.

    It’s our RIGHT. It’s our DUTY.

      I think I get your point. I have been remiss at times in “misunderestimating” comments.

      The U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact to be used against us ! Libs and progressives, and other communists including Obama, don’t misinterprete or misunderestimate it’s meaning.

      I can’t disagree. There is a tendency for a people to suffer long in bondage because the fight is inevitably terrible, but I fear it’s becoming inevitable.

    Oh my Lord! I have a pathological lying psychopath for a brother. He’s been that way his whole life and now he is the executor of our 3 million dollar estate since he has blatantly pulled the wool over the eyes of first my father until he passed and now my mother destroying any relationship I had with her and scamming her, my other brother and me out of everything that’s not nailed down and using the buildings of the estate rent free for his own personal gain and paying himself very handsomely from the estate as well… So I know a psychopath, liar, and a con man when I see one…

    The point is watching this video and every time Obama speaks is like I’m looking at my brother. What’s worse is Obama has the wool pulled over half of our county’s eyes… Very very sad!

      Dave I respond so you know you are heard here. However this isn’t “Dear Ann (Mark).”

      I work with young lady only 61 whose grandmother was 1st cousin to Henry Ford. Nothing left to granny back then. Cookie crumbles funny that way. I won’t go into details, but your story is run of the mill. Yeah, Dad died in ’97, Bro and I saw to Moms needs til ’02, then Bro was shot and killed by daughter, 3 nine millimeters from Glock to chest, bloody death real quick. Yo…I tended from then on til her demise in ’06, floating her on foam rubber mattress in 5 1/2 feet sea water in Katrina ’05. Nothing from Bros family since ’02. Then they want to know what they get. There was not millions or even one , but even a few thousand causes problems.

      Hope y’all work it out.

      Dave, it’s the way the world turns that frustrates me so badly at times. I fully understand your meaning about brother-con-men. Some are definitely worse than others. As far as Obama, the fools who believe their lives will be improved are in for one hell of a surprise..When they figure it out, it will be too late, and looking for scapegoats.

    • the unit

      Dave I apoligize. Should not of posted what I did below. It’s tough times for lots of folks. Tougher times coming if we preserve this republic. I do hope your particular difficulty works out.

    For freedom loving patriots in America, elections are now irrelevant, because our voting process has been usurped by the communist thugs in the Obama regime, and by twenty million illegal Hispanics—There is now no recourse to Revolution.

    In this day of complete government surveillance, formal organization that can be identified and controlled is futile. Let one million lone wolves strike at the Obama regime and it’s supporters; then the patriots in our military will finish the task.

    Trust no one. Let not your right hand know what your left hand is doing.

    TARGET-PLAN-EXECUTE.
    ——-
    Many who say they love America will recoil at these words, because they prefer to continue playing political games and clinging to their comforts; but they should realize that the slave-master Obama is soon to vanquish their remaining freedoms, and soon to come for their comforts—We must learn from the history of communist take-overs, and realize that he conquest of America, being their biggest prize of all, will bring out their most brutal and tyrannical aspirations.

    We be entering new front or phase…war on converatism and those standing for freedom and liberty. Actually I’m pre-boomer by a few years. Served in military and was politically active starting with Goldwater and haven’t quit. Somehow it just wasn’t to be, what I thought the right path. Will keep on keeping on though, y’all do the same. Even with and since Atilla the Hun, folks overcome.

    How do you respect someone that shows this kind of disdain towards the American people? I can’t believe he’s still in office!

    Jeffery Immelt said on Charlie Rose last night…”“Really, the one thing that actually works, state-run communism may not be your cup of tea, but their government works.”
    I don’t know how to say what I see. Armand Hammer of Occidental Petroleum used to fly into Russia during the Cold War without obstruction, tending to business. And they all just figuring out what would work to control resources and people.

    Why would GE guy submit?…Immelt said, “They are much better off working on a more consumer-based economy…” What might that mean? China and other communist, and others were pretty proficient of getting rid of what I’ve read of for years as “useless eaters.” What if a company like GE and others could have a consumer base that has it’s consumer potential that didn’t have to support, let’s say “takers” instead of that more communist term. Could use that money to buy GE? Science Czar Holgren proclaimed years ago maximum population of earth should be about 1.7 billion. Naw… that couldn’t be planned, government civilian agencies bought a billion bullets, .40 cal hollow points and .223 rifle, for target practice.
    Would they? Check Attila the Hun and all history. Most of us be contributorers, vets, tax payers, and playing by the rules we were given. Could they have other plans?

    Thanks for spreading the fear and hatred. Life would be so much better if you ran it!!! NOT.
    You ‘conservative christian patriots’ need to realize that God is not American and heaven doesn’t revolve around the US. Barack Obama is President, he is black, he doesn’t go to your church but that doesn’t make him a dictator or prevaricator or the anti-christ demagogue.

    • http://www.markamerica.com/ Mark America

      “Conservative Christian Patriots?” Well, you certainly have your nerve. Which of those don’t you hold in contempt? The President is black? I hadn’t noticed. He’s a thoroughgoing Marxist though for some reason, I suspect you approve of that. You’re right that the fact that he is black,and doesn’t attend my church doesn’t make him those things, but the fact that he’s a leftist goon does.Again, for some strange reason, I get the impression you approve of leftist goons.
