Obama’s Post-Election Attack Plan

Pages: 1 2

In an L.A. Times piece Peter Nicholas and Christi Parsons make clear the “fresh strategy” borders on government by executive fiat. It begins, “As President Obama remakes his senior staff, he is also shaping a new approach for the second half of his term: to advance his agenda through executive actions he can take on his own, rather than pushing plans through an increasingly hostile Congress.”

This rule by edict is confirmed by Obama strategist David Axelrod, who said, “It’s fair to say that the next phase is going to be less about legislative action than it is about managing the change that we’ve brought.”

The LA Times continues:”So the best arena for Obama to execute his plans may be his own branch of government. That means more executive orders, more use of the bully pulpit, and more deployment of his ample regulatory powers and the wide-ranging rulemaking authority of his Cabinet members.”

Nicholas and Parsons note how the president has replaced the few appointees with ties to Capitol Hill in place of Chicago insiders. They specifically state the “the Environmental Protection Agency is determined to use its regulatory power…to begin lowering [carbon] emissions, in the absence of congressional action.”

The Associated Press also reported, “The Obama administration says it would prefer that Congress enact climate change legislation, but has used the threat of EPA regulations to goad lawmakers into action.”

Congressional Republicans have accurately called the regulations “job-killers,” and Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia has sponsored a two-year freeze on certain EPA regulations. Now it looks as though the president will ignore Rockefeller, the Republicans, and the will of the voters.

Rather than triangulate as Bill Clinton successfully did or take an electoral chastening, Obama plans to ram his agenda down the American people’s throats “by any means necessary.”

    This is surprising?? Dictator Obama will use every tool at his disposal to impose his will on the american people. A will and ideals the majority of us find un-American and highly suspect. I am not a religious person, but I am praying some sort of legislative power check can't inhibit his exeutive power and the power of his crony cabinet officials.

    It might be a good idea to first check out if this man who occupies the White House, is legally entitled to do so. If not, nothing he has ruled on is allowed to stand.
    When some one spends a million dollars for keep his history secret, it makes one wonder "what is the secret" that costs so much money to hide.

    No matter what happens in two week, the taxpayers will lose, Washington will be fundamentally unchanged, and the Party will still be in power. Come 3 November, you will be told to just shut up and pay your taxes like the obedient little slaves you are.

    America needs a revolution to survive and no one is willing to do what is needed. Sad.

    There are things Congress or even one chamber can do:
    1- Defund his programs which includes the people to carry them out
    2- Sue the President or any of the Executive Agencies about rules that violate the spirit of the law they pass.
    3- Investigate the hell out of the administration, all of its shady dealings with ACORN, George Soros
    4- This is extreme – Get the states with a 2/3rds vote to call for a National Convention. Congress must call it. The President can't stop it. Amendments to limit the President's power can then be sent to the states for ratification. Need 3/4th.
    5- States can sue the Executive Agencies under Amendment X for violation of state powers.

    One thing is central. Congress can not make this personal. You attack Obama; he gets the sympathy vote.

      Please don't forget that very helpful defensive 12 gauge double ought.

    • sudmuf

      30.06 and 40 caliber would be good too!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but one hope is Christine O'Donnell — if elected doesn't she get seated immediately? One more vote against the agenda. Either way she needs help from wherever she can get it.

    They could try to impeach him because the main job of the federal government is to keep our citizens safe. His actions in Arizona clearly show him not only not doing his job, but actually making it worse. Impeachment proceedings would occupy some of his time and attention.
    Other than that — just say "no". When he does something unconstitutional we should not dignify it by obeying it. Get the states together and disobey it.

      The House could impeach Obama for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. This is like an indictment and requires only a majority vote on each of the charges. The trial of the President takes place in the Senate. Here, the Senate must register a 2/3rds vote to remove the President from office, The Vice President would be then sworn in as the President. The former President can be still tried in federal court where he/she could be found guilty and sentenced to prison.

      If the Republicans win the House in November, they will never get a 2/3rds vote in the Senate unless Obama did something terribly wrong and Congress and the public were aware of it.


  • John Day

    Impeach the bastard. An impeachable offense is what the House of Representatives says it is. Andrew Johnson was impeached for firing the secretary of war he inherited from Lincoln. Bill Clinton, for lying about oral sex in the Oval Office. The threat of impeachment, plus a warning to any lame duck Democratic they would never be confirmed for any administration post by the Senate, or any lobbying company that hired these traitors would be boycotted by the GOP Congress.

    I'd LOVE to see the military escort his sorry butt to the brig for dereliction of duty.
    He so deserves it!

    Treasury and Dept. of Labor have been holding meetings to nationalize 401 K's, IRA's, and other tax advantaged retirement and savings accounts. The money would be confiscated from these private accounts and merged into the broke Social Security Dept. Government bureaucrats would then tell you what a "Fair" pension would be for your money and give the rest to others. This would be the largest redistribution of wealth ever. Supposedly this would be to help the unions pensions and states where the public pensions are in trouble. Why is the media silent? This is scary!

  • Wesley69

    I've heard something about it. Not that this administration cares about the Constitution, but they can't do this. They have no legal right to deprieve anyone of their property without due process. Our 401K is your property. Obama tries to do this and he will have a revolt on his hands. The media is silent because they are in his pocket except for Fox. MSNBC is this administration's mouthpiece.

    well, Obama is a fabain socialist and while the Clinton's were involved with some radicals they didn't have a Frank marshall Davis to have an impact on them at a young age like Obama did, so Bill Clinton isn't or was the true believer like Obama is.

  • Neil

    It won't do any good to just impeach Obama, remove him from office, and put him in jail. The next president will give him a full pardon and nothing will have been accomplished. It's like Johnson Grass in your field, you have to kill it out at the root and any suckers have to be eliminated also. Start with a new planting and get rid of any weeds as they crop up. You cannot leave any rotting apples in the barrel becuse they will only infect others. Clean out the White House, dust the rugs and wash the windows so we can see and keep track of what's going on. I predict higher unemployment figures after the election. Hundreds of Democrats will be out of a job and standing in line somewhere. God Bless The United States, as it were in the beginning.
