The Obama Dictatorship Is Coming
by Jeff Davis
The Democrats have had a very frustrating year. They tried to maintain “bipartisanship.” They tried to persuade people to “trust them” that Obamacare would not be a disaster, that would tax people into oblivion, and the health care would be endlessly watered down and millions of additional illegal immigrants would come north of the border, not for jobs, but for any and all medical problems.
From now on, Obama won’t bother to try to build a consensus. He’ll just do whatever the hell he wants to do, or rather whatever Rahm Emanuel tells him to do.
The New York Times reports, “With much of his legislative agenda stalled in Congress, President Obama and his team are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities.”
It’s called rule by decree or dictate. That’s where the word dictatorship comes from.
The Times notes “Obama has not given up hope of progress on Capitol Hill, aides said, and has scheduled a session with Republican leaders on health care later this month.But in the aftermath of a special election in Massachusetts that cost Democrats unilateral control of the Senate, the White House is getting ready to act on its own in the face of partisan gridlock heading into the midterm campaign. ‘We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues,’ said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff.’ ”
Who would want to go to session with Obama, wherein he will act like an Affirmative Action college professor, lecture them and try to show off how many big words he can put on his teleprompter, many of which he will mispronounce, such as “corpsman” which Obama pronounces “corpseman.”
The Times goes on: “Any president has vast authority to influence policy even without legislation, through executive orders, agency rule-making and administrative fiat…. the Environmental Protection Agency is moving forward with possible regulations on heat-trapping gases blamed for climate change, while a bill to cap such emissions languishes in the Senate.”
Despite all the revelations exposing Global Warming, including the Climategate scandal, you’d think the Democrats would ease up on the job-killing Global Warming nonsense. The real point of Global Warming legislation is to give the Democrats a club that they will use to beat big corporations with —if these corporations don’t donate enough money to the Democrat Party.
We should have stopped Bush and Cheney at the time when they began to tear up the Constitution. We didn’t. Bush and Cheney left a whole structure of tyranny, extra-legal procedures and precedent behind, delivered into the hands of an African tyrant who is quite capable of turning into another Idi Amin or Robert Mugabe once the last few restraints have been removed. We desperately need to retake this country for ourselves and the two-party system is our enemy.
