Congress Agrees To Expand Presidential Power

August 21, 2012 by  

Congress Agrees To Expand Presidential Power
President Barack Obama signs a bill into law earlier this month. Staff Secretary Doug Kramer prepares the next bill for the President's signature.

Political polarization is supposedly at an all-time high as Americans enjoy a tedious election-season that the populace is told pits big government, socialist values that would impress the likes of Karl Marx against small government, pro-business ideals that should satisfy any conservative.

So polarized is the political landscape that legislators are unable to produce a budget for the United States because of sheer gridlock, the conversation about social issues has denigrated into screaming on both sides and it is political heresy to come to agreement with your political opponent no matter what heights of idiocy you must reach in proving your dissident.

But lawmakers recently and oddly came to agreement that the power of the President should be met with less political opposition, at least when it comes to making certain appointments.

As Americans have been busy trying to make sense of the upcoming Presidential election, Congress quietly agreed on a matter of importance: making sure that, without Senate approval and without retribution, 170 people can be pointed to powerful positions by whoever assumes the Presidency.

The Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 — sponsored by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) — eliminates the need to obtain Senate confirmation for about 170 executive branch posts. The act was passed by the Senate last summer, met House approval last month and was signed into law by President Barack Obama earlier this month.

The legislation’s sponsors claim it simply reduces the amount of time it takes for a newly elected President to make low-level appointments. But the list includes top public-policy positions within the following Departments: Defense, State, Labor, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development, and Veterans Affairs. A full list can be viewed here.

Lieberman said of the legislation:

This bipartisan legislation represents the Senate at its best. A problem was identified, and Democrats and Republicans worked together to craft a solution. Now, future Administrations will be able to get their teams in place more quickly, and the Senate will be able focus its time and energy on the most important Executive Branch appointments. In no way does this bill erode the Senate’s role of “advice and consent.” Rather, it strengthens the Senate’s power by freeing us up to concentrate on nominees who will actually shape national policy.

Despite Lieberman’s assertion that many of these positions do little in the way of shaping public policy, Americans concerned about the growing power of the Presidency might argue that lessening the vetting process is just another step in the direction of complete top-down political control in the Nation.

    I’ve seen this pattern before. Hmmmmm…. Now when was it?

    Ah yes. Circa 1930′s. A little place in Europe.

    • revnowwhilewecan

      Unfortunately Vicki, I think we’re long past that stage. It’s just that most Americans don’t realize it.

      • steve

        am i hearing dictatorship?

      • revnowwhilewecan

        No. You are witnessing it.

        The actions of every legislature in the United States in their very next session should be the repeal of the 17th Amendment. The Senate was intended to represent the governments of the several States. When a senator did something other than represent the interests of their State, a Governor calls a special session and (s)he get his/her ass recalled. Today it represents two political parties with no consideration to the people of their State and NO WAY TO RECALL THEM. THANKS TEDDY….WITHOUT THIS AMENDMENT THERE WOULD BE NO PROGRESSIVE INTRUSION INTO THE LIVES OF AMERICANS!

      • omanuel

        I agree with your comment, revnowwhilewecan, but I am not certain we can revolt before this entire imaginary global government structure collapses on us all!

        Democrats and Republicans; Conservatives and Liberals; Communists, Socialists and Capitalists: Paupers and Members of the Royal Family have secretly worked together behind the scenes since the Second World War ended and the United Nations was established to:

        a.) Unite Nations under a global government

        b.) Eliminate constitutional limits on governments, and

        c.) Obscure information on the energy (E) stored as mass (m) in cores of atoms, planets, stars and galaxies

        Here is a summary ( ) of experimental data and observations hidden, or manipulated to support this effort to enslave people the way George Orwell predicted in 1948:

        This morning I listened to some interviews with military veterans, and it was chilling.

        They were all in agreement that America has been taken over by enemy forces. They said that if anyone in the military takes an interest in the Constitution, or dares to even carry one, they are ridiculed and called “unpatriotic”!! Military people are more afraid of having paperwork filed against them for speaking out than they are to be put on the front lines in Iraq. And now a precident has been set for detaining a person who speaks against this administration on a mental health detention, with no charges at all. I suppose they will be “treated” with drugs to “rehabilitate” them.

        This is what was done in Stalinist Russia, folks. Hitler did it, too. And don’t forget those who perished in prison for simply writing against their governments.

        The other thing is that the “Patriot Act” was named as a joke against patriots, as they are precisely the ones it’s meant to target. Patriots are now considered to be terrorists.

        One of them said that there are those in government (and the military ranks) who want to tell us what’s going on, but they are terrified of retribution. So they leak things to their friends. The word is that we will be under martial law before the holidays.

        The question is, what will they use as the trigger? Economic collapse? Pandemic? Foreign invasion? Cataclysmic cosmic (?) event? Take your pick. But, except for the duious possibility that our military and militia forces can pull of a plan…

        I don’t think anyone has any idea how close we are to disaster. Disaster doesn’t even describe what the PTB are planning for us. We’d all better get off our b*tts and start holding local governments accountable, filing charges, doing whatever we have to to start things moving. It’s going to take a lot more than an election to turn this around.

      • revnowwhilewecan

        I’m with you Kate8. Brandon Raub is just one example. Luckily, and I can’t emphasize this enough, there were tons of people with camera phones and stuff was posted even before they could get him detained. That probably protected him from being drugged and called a psychopath because everyone knew how it went down before the corrupt MSM could put their spin on it. I really believe that as long as we can communicate as fast as we can now, we will eventually win this battle against the cabal. If that, our strongest weapon, is taken from us then I’m going to my bunker!

      • revnowwhilewecan

        I think he’s going to be ok and sounds in good health. This is another good tool of exposure and more and more people are noticing what’s going on now and the PTB don’t like it.

      • Kate8

        Good words, and I agree with both of you.

        However, the only people who are watching this are patriots, the very ones being targeted. Those on the Left and those who are generally unaware will believe the guy is a psych case, if they hear about it at all.

        I have faith in our ability to throw off this oppressive, deadly takeover of America. I just hope we don’t wait too long to act.

        I know that we win in the end. The question is, how much destruction will go down first.

    • Warrior

      Of, course after seeing the choices for latest supreme court justices, I say they may as well have a national lottery to choose the positions or just pick a page in the phone book and point!

      • AZ-Ike

        Patriot 1776,
        I hope you are not implying that Romney would be the ‘conservative dictator.’ He is anything but conservative.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      How much more power does O need?
      So now we have the full development of supposedly benevolent Despotism.

      • eddie47d

        You all say that Romney will be the winner so he will be the one to benefit from all those new Presidential powers. As if Citizens United and the Supreme court didn’t already do that.

      • Patriot1776

        eddie, that is exactly the point. It doesn’t matter which party wins, the President should not have power without checks and balances. A conservative dictator is no better than a liberal dictator. That is why the Constitution exists.

    • hangman

      IF: We had an honorable president, & IF : we had an intelligent president, & IF : We had an American president, and If : we had a man of scrupples. And if we had a moralistic president, Etc,
      But, we have an illegal muslim, brain dead, no honor, no scrupples, no morals, (gay). untrustworthy, etc. How can this type of degenerate be trusted with more power than the real presidents have had?

      • Mike in MI

        The real presidents we’ve had in the past had much the same authority to do the things Obama has done. They wouldn’t use it.
        They had no desire to rule, control, enslave their fellow citizens to serve their megalomaniacal, sociopathic compulsions. They had personal honor, discipline, integrity, and an American’s traditional respect for freedom and the wisdom of free, God loving folks.

      • Kate8

        And just why IS this administration buying and distributing hollow-point bullets to all federal agencies, including those having to do with weather and such? So far, they’ve amassed enough ammo to deliver 5 rounds into every American, with enough left for Mexicans, Iranians…

        We cannot afford to dismiss these moves by the guv…they are for a purpose.

      • Pathfinder

        Kate 8; U R sharp!
        Now how many folks out there know that the National Weather Service is purchasing huge he amounts of ammunition thru the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
        Now the question is; What in the hell for?

      • TIME

        Dear Pathfinder & Kate,

        Well the answer to your question’s is really quite simple.

        You see we have it all wrong, yes indeed – we just are looking at this in the wrong light, really they are just getting ready to go POSTAL.
        Afterall the weathermen really do need Billions of rounds of 40 cal’s and 9MM hp’s so they can take care of anyone {who dares question} if they got the weather correct.
        I mean really – Afterall their record is just so X- O- lant, hell most of them can’t even tell you if its day of night and get that correct. LOL ;-)

        So what ever any of you do, – “don’t insult the weatherman!”

        Really it’s like the signs in the forrest – That say stuff like
        “Don’t feed the Bears.”
        Oh BTW, them damm bears are requesting 100 Billion rounds of 9mm hp’s too!
        The Bears are so damm well fed up with all the ding bats leaving food all about, they are just not going to take it anylonger.
        So Barry said its ok they can have as much as they need, it will really help the master plan in the long run, afterall the damm bears didn’t build the Forest.

        PS: Also don’t insult any of the other special people called “Federal Employes, and Bears.”
        You just may get an overload of lead in your diet! Afterall even Bears know’s that to much lead is bad for your health!

        Peace and Love

      Vicki I agree, to me this is deceptive and the Rhino’s that backed it voted for everything he does. Anything this man thinks of has an alterior motive. He plans to get in again by hook or by crook. So he is streamlining his quick crackdown.

      Vicki, the ensuing Second World War ended with the destruction of Hiroshima on 6 Aug 1945 and Nagasaki on 9 Aug 1945.

      Scientific leaders of our effort to build the Atomic Bomb led frightened world leaders into establishing the United Nations on 24 Oct 1945,

      The Japanese scientist who first studied the ashes of Hiroshima in Aug 1945, Dr. Kazuo Kuroda of the Imperial University of Tokyo, became my research mentor in 1960. By that strange coincidence, I was finally able to decipher why government scientists were lying.

      Unfortunately not until Climategate emails and documents were released in Nov 2009.

      • Kate8

        omanuel – I have been perusing your website with great interest. I can’t wait to get into the links you’ve provided. Thank you so much for sharing this.

        I highly recommend everyone check this out. Fascinating.

      • Kate8

        omanuel – While I can somewhat understand what you are talking about on your site, it would be great to read something in layman’s terms. Terms like “nuclear fire” and “element synthesis” are a bit vague to me as to what you are referring (among others!).

        I’d like information that is easier to understand. Can you recommend something?

        As for climate change…they must have been counting on a really dumbed down populace, since, when you consider that the Earth has been in solar orbit for billions of years, how can you take a snippet of 100 years or so and assign any real significance. Especially since all evidence points to cyclical heating and cooling, anyway.

        I’ve long believed that we receive life energy from all over the universe. I also believe that all elements for life are available if we know how to draw them. Since all matter is made from basic substance, then we must, in fact, be one with all of Creation.

        How can I get more info? Please!

        that’s what you think. guess again. they control the power not you you can vote all you want and it will always be the same body with a different face. get real and wake up. they make the laws not you. dems or reps are one in the same. always has been . you are to blinded to see the truth. this might be the land of the free but in what sense. they always throw you a bone to please you while they crawl up your butt and you don’t feel it. spend spend spend. tax tax tax. you want to have faith in some one , how about trying god for a change. at least he won’t lie to you. and he might not help you when you want help but in the end he will be there.

      • Mike in MI

        Steve -
        “The word is faithful”…because God is faithful to His word. You do neither yourself nor anybody else ANY good by saying stuff like, “He may not give you what you want when you pray..”. That just shows you’ve been sitting at the feet of someone with cloven hooves.
        The word of God is as much God as God is God.
        “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word WAS God.” (John 1:1) No different today,’cause God don’t never change.
        The problem is not with God… ever! It is required of a steward to be faithful. If YOU are faithful to God’s Word you will have no problem with God. Your problem, in our day and time, is finding someone who can and wants to teach you truth. And THEN, that person (male or female) should be able to prove it by causing what he/she teaches to become evident to your senses and tangible to your touch. If not – keep moving ’til you find the one who can.
        First of all, you study it deeply enough to know what the Book says – then you’ve got a basis for determining if they are approved of God (or not) and can help you become “approved unto God” (2 Timothy 2:15 and Acts 2:22)
        Don’t blame God for YOUR problems. Your “stinkin’ thinkin’” brought it on you. “As a man thinketh in his heart…SO IS he.” YOU control YOUR mind!!! and, MOUTH.

      • TIME

        Dear Mike,

        We have have had many very difficult issues going on over the last few years that have all but drained us in many ways.

        We pray to as well ask the Christ for strength and his help daily.
        Let me say this: ” The Christ provides in abundance!”

        So I will attest to the fact that Without the Christ help we would be in really bad shape, yet – we are doing fine. The Christ has shown us nothing but LOVE as well brought us every contact we needed when we needed it.
        The result is a light has been lit in both of our soul like nothing we have ever experienced in our life before. Its just beyond words.

        Peace and Love

  • Chester

    One question to all of you nay sayers, why SHOULD the SENATE have the power to tell the president he can NOT appoint the public policy types HE wants, as they will have no power to do anything other than publicize what has already been establish. Originally, the president couldn’t even hire his one office staff without senate approval for each and every name, and the authority levels we are talking about here are actually LOWER than his personal secretary.


      Chester, you’re obviously a troll or have never heard of seperation of powers. Which is it?

    • Congress Works For Us

      1. Because the Constitution says so.

        Congress does have the power to do what it done here, below, Article II, Section 2 in part.

    We are seeing our country transformed into a communist cess pool, and no one will lift a finger to do anything. The only thing that will happen, is complaining on forums like this, which I guess at this point are meaningless. Revnowwhilewecan, has the correct idea, but which sheeple will be the first? This is the saddest time in my entire life. I have lost my country, and there is no turning back.

    Ryan sounds like politicians of the past, as far back as I can remember. When it comes to balancing the budget the only place they are willing to cut is our social programs, when the real problem is with their overseas spending. Like I have said before, they all need to be removed. I also do not thing trying them for treason would be overboard.

    • trish campbell

      I totally agree and think we should all prepare for the worst. I don’t think all hope is gone. I pray every night that God will remove him from office in November. Once the head dictator is gone It should be easy for the American people to vote out everyone who supported him and his tyranny. God bless America and all who have the courage to use their Constitutional right of freedom of speech. The U.N. has way to much influence on our current government! I personnally don’t care how they do things in England, Iran, Iraq,china or any other foreign government! This is America and we fought a war for our freedoms once and history has a way of repeating its self.

          Teaxs’ attitude is not interesting: It’s perfectly understandable. Does the phrase “REMEMBER THE ALAMO!” ring a bell? Texans know more than any other state the dangers our country is currently facing. Texans are ready and willing to defend our country again.

          America or obama in November! You can’t have both!

  • northbrook

    There were reasons that the Senate was given approval under the Constitution of appointments made by the President. The Senate is now undoing that and need to realize that by doing this they are subverting a protection setup under the Constitution to prevent a small group of individuals from controlling the country’s government. All right minded senators should vote this down. Otherwise we may find ourselves under a Oligarchy.

        Antonio – To a great extent that is true, especially of the newer recruits. There are those, however, who see what’s going on here.

        But, just to cover their bases, the WH has invited tens of thousands of Russian, Chinese and Islamic troops onto American soil to make sure the job gets done.

    What goes around comes around..the abdicating of governmental responsbility by Congress is reminiscent of the Roman Senate who were easily and similarly swayed to confer emperor status save for the few who were felled ny julius caesar in quick order.

    “Despite Lieberman’s assertion that many of these positions do little in the way of shaping public policy, Americans concerned about the growing power of the Presidency might argue that lessening the vetting process is just another step in the direction of complete top-down political control in the Nation.”

    Can’t pass a budget due to gridlock. What a load of crap. Not having a budget has nothing to do with gridlock, it has everything to do the democratic senate refusing to put forth a budget. The one put forth by Obama was shot down by Reps AND Dems – so this wasn’t gridlock either.

    When I read about the passing of this latest Congressional blunder, I have now joined with many Americans in saying 100% of the men and women “serving” (and I use the term loosely) their State constitutents should be removed in total. The Separation of Powers has all but disappeared. Most people say we would replace these “servants of the people” with nothing better. But how could we do worse?? I plan to email all of my Congressmen/women and ask them how they voted on this bill. If any of them are up for election this year, they will not get my vote. Apathy and government entitlements have gotten us to this wretched place and with so many people receiving “free” money, why would they NOT vote for the current group “serving” in the Congress and White House? Let’s hope November brings some positive changes in the Congress and White House.

  • Nobody’s Fool

    The party’s over, folks. Our freedoms and liberties have been trashed by the very ones we sent to clean up the mess. We can change personnel in November, but it’s for naught. They have slipped in enough secret legislation that we can never recover without a full- fledged revolution. And there will be blood, lots of it, and might is on their side so most of the blood will be ours. It was easier to run a revolution when there were so few people here, but now we’ve got at least a third of the country dependent on the guvmint for their existence, that’s at least 100 million!!! When their govmint check doesn’t arrive, they will be coming after YOU, brothers & sisters, to take what you have. And as to whether our soldiers would fire on us, may I remind you of Kent State?? Tienamen Square, anyone? Yes, trained military will fire on a target. Dig into your bunkers, folks, the govmint is coming to get you, and it will be at the behest of your fake president, aka King Barack Hussein oBlamer.


      Tienanmen square is a good example, Many of those people were sleeping and was peaceful protest with no violence at the time the tanks rolled through.

      However, Kent State is a whole separate issue. The protesters were tearing that town up, breaking into local business’s, damaging store front window and rampant property damage to business owners all along and around main st., by which these business owners had nothing to do or any control of what was going on in Vietnam.

      The National guard was called in to restore order to the city. The first several days the national guard were there, protestors “ATTACKED” armed men with bricks and balloons filled with piss. The idiotic mentality of protestors attacking armed men with bricks and piss balloons and bags of human feces certainly is an assault on the national guard.

      The time came to break up the violent protest because no peaceful protest was in sight and they were told to disperse. When they were ordered to disperse, instead of retreating and going home or on with their business, they decided to march straight towards armed men. What was their intention? to disarm the national guard, take possession of the fire arms so they could really create havoc on the city and its citizens with fire arms instead of bricks.

      The mistake that those protesters made was thinking that the National guard (American citizens) didn’t have a right to protect them self. That is exactly what they did ,they had a right to defend their self when the protestors advanced towards them with hysteria, not mentioning the past days of endless attacks of bricks and other weapons used to cause harm, bodily injury. These days, if you so much as raise your voice or touch a persons hand or arm constitutes assault and a right to take measure to defend your self. These National guardsmen had been attacked multiple times prior to the stand off.

      Will the American military fire upon other Americans, yes of course they will, if they are threatened to fight or be beaten and possibly die.

      It is no different than a scenario of 2 or more Americans citizens becoming enemies. When a criminal or a person with intentions to harm another citizen such as robbers or rapist and so on engage against another American and pose a threat to another Americas life, the victim has every right to defend him or her self. That is exactly what the National guardsmen did. Could those 4 deaths been avoided, of course they could have if they turned around and went on their business. Pick and choose your battles, that day was a losing battle for the protestors, the odds were all against them.

      Unlike Tienanmen Square where many of the students were sleeping at the time the tanks rolled through and ran over many of the sleeping protesters and the other protesters had signs. They were not running through Beijing and busting up and robbing local business’s they were having a peaceful protest unlike Kent State.

      I wasn’t there at Tienanmen square when it happened, but I have worked in China many times and have discussions with people who were there or in the area at that time. However, I was there at Kent State and personally seen the city in shambles and innocent business owners penalized and American citizens attacked and assaulted simply because of some liberal minded youths basically with the mentality of modern day OWS cults.

    it is time for the people who care about this country to put a stop to this rush to communism. half the country has become complacent, living off the government, welfare, government employees, state employment, the minorities and illegals have broke our back with welfare dependency. i know some military personnel and they have the same view as mine, so i think king barry might be in for a big surprise. the bolshevik party has excepted the socialist path so we can’t depend on their help, no danger from them either, remember they want to remove guns from the populace. most would probably shoot themselves in the foot.
    organize and march on washington, demand the bolshevioks and rino’s leave town, clean out the senate and congress, especially the white house. that’s the only way we can win. otherwise it’s all over if barry is re-elected. america is doomed. as hillary and barry say: the american spring!! it’s time.

  • The Resolute Voice

    Freedom and liberty don’t usually disappear in one full swoop. It happens in bits and piece, aided by people who can’t be bothered to stand up and say “No” or just let their own power dribble away because they are either scared to stand up for freedom or are too bored or lazy to do so, OR they became starstruck by someone like Hitler. Most of Europe and England and even the U.S.’s Roosevelt and several famous people of the time, i.e, Lindburgh and Joe Kennedy were starstruck by the creative “genius” in Germany who promised nirvanna in terms of “hope and change”. The evil undertone of what he was planning was simply ignored.

    Our circumstances in 2008 and until recently here have been similar – people are mesmerized and don’t bother to notice what is going on right under their noses – the populace, the media and our elected officials largely are either frightened to disagree or agree because agreeing is easier ( no charges of supporting the 1% or being divisive or racist, etc. Hopefully, we’re starting to wake up now, and it’s not too late. Each of us needs right now every day to respond to this new call and keep our liberty intact

      • Kate8

        Make no mistake…the revolution is already underway.

        There are things going on behind the scenes that we don’t hear about. There are forces which have been gearing up for decades, and are even now springing into action. Not ALL of the people in DC and the military are sold out. There is an underground that feeds info and has a plan.

        I just hope they can pull it off. Otherwise…

        What we need to do is to toss out this defeatist attitude that we don’t have a chance. THAT is unAmerican. Never say die! Resistance is NOT futile!

        Every person who wakes up to what is happening is one more person the Illuminati has lost forever. Information is crucial. We must think VICTORY. Anything else is not an option.

        Join your local militias. These are great people, folks. Patriots. And they need all kinds of people for all kinds of tasks. Stand for FREEDOM and we will win.

        The PTB are crumbling. There is much dissention in their own ranks. Other world leaders are beginning to revolt against the NWO. People everwhere do not like what they are seeing. O is on his way out… The PTB may well try to pull off something big in a desperate attempt to retain control, but they will lose. We will make sure of it.

    You have ALL missed a very important point….. WE can STOP PAYING THEM. DON’T PAY TAXES to a CORRUPT Government! The rest of the world already knows that the dollar is worthless. If the Government is bankrupt the only people who will stand by them are the desperate ones. The Military conplex will walk away without their pay. There is NO BONUS fighting for a corupt and bankrupt criminal Government that is no longer “FOR the people, OF the people and BY the people.”.

    • Kate8

      Ed S – Yes, and stop buying stuff. Anything that comes from big corporations and their distributors…just don’t buy it. Improvise. Buy local.

      Look into alternative energies. Don’t keep your money in banks. Even local credit unions are better than banks. There isn’t much reason to have your money there, anyway, since they aren’t paying enough interest to count.

      We need to establish an underground economy, perhaps a new currency. Currency can be whatever we want it to be. We can barter. There are ways.

      We must become innovative. We must extract ourselves from the matrix, from the Beast.

      Learn how to manage your own health. Learn who you are in spirit. We are much more than we think.

      We can do this. We MUST do this.

    This message is for all Americans of our once great American Middle Class. A book is coming out in 2 weeks, which every American Must Read! The title of the Book?
    ” RAGE Of The American Middle Class “. The book calls both Republicans and Democrats on the carpet; It presents specific ways to fix our economy; our country; and restore our middle class! It publishes 15 Voters’ Demands, which must become the basis for political debates, election campaigning, and If elected, specific performance/actions that need be taken.

    God Bless America and the American People! Please Read the Book!


    This is total BS. The president should not have so much power with out congressional approval. Obama is a classic example of a president gone wild by appointing so many behind the scenes and claiming presidential authority, that not only the people have no idea what is going on but, congress neither. This crap is going to keep up and soon there will be insurrection in the streets because the people are tired of congress doing what they damn well please. Congress has totally ignored our Constitution and gave the house away. The GOP and DNC must be stopped by electing new representation and making sure the new incoming congress members understand what there jobs are. The house is up for election this coming November and many members of the Senate…I say get rid of them all especially anyone that voted to expand the Presidents authority. Things must change, if not, the sure destruction of America is inevitable.

  • Pathfinder

    170 new presidential appointees. (Translation: 170 new CZARS)
    So what the big deal here? Will more CZARS yield More MANDATES?
    And, are more CZARS an indication of the future?

    Well lets see. There is this thing called is called “REGIONALISM”.
    Could there be a connection between Czars and Regionalism?

    What is Regionalism? In short it is “War on the Suburbs” ,
    It is a plan to drive residents and revenue from the suburbs back into the cities.
    (This is also known as “Agenda 21″ within the UN)

    Why is this being done?
    Lots of sugar coated reasons including better funding for city schools, lower energy consumption, better transportation as in public busses, trains and bicycles, no single family homes to take up precious space, no cars to dirty the air and so on.
    Sounds like a really good plan to reduce carbon emissions and help the
    planet be green doesn’t it? (Typical Governmental Speak.)

    How will it happen? As with all “progressive ideology”,… gradually and with tax based penalties for the suburbs and generous funding for cities under the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant Program (SCPGP). Obama and Congress (this means all D’s, R’s, and the I,s) can make it make it very difficult to live in the suburbs in the same way government always motivates people… higher taxes on things they do not want you to have and not funding the infrastructure needed in suburban communities

    Now where else in history can of find this kind of governmental intrusion
    into personal lives and freedom? Answer; the Soviet Union starting with Stalin. As an example; The USSR indeed forced residents into massive communal apartment complexes, all of equal quality and living space.

    Now for those of you who equate Obama to Hitler, please broaden your perspective
    to include Stalin, (think communism; not just fascism). The puppet master, George Soros is linked to and supports this Agenda 21, Regionalization movement. And “Our Government” now makes grants for this under the SCPGP program stated above.
    States like Florida, Ohio and a few others have already received grant money.

    Obama promised that he would “Fundamentally Change America” and he keeping that promise. Doubt these words? Google, “Regionalism is Communism” by Charlotte Iserbyt, Feb4,2004. Also “Regionalism” by “Diane”, August 8,2012. You will find ample information on this further suppression of LIBERTY should you do the research.

    Lastly, those of you who are old enough may remember Nikita Kruchev words: ” We (meaning socialism) will bury you” made at the UN during the cold war. The US may have won the battle but we are now certainly losing the war.

    • Kate8

      Pathfinder – We said.

      Actually, the originator of Agenda 21 is Maurice Strong, a diabolical sociopath who now lives and operates in China. An uber-elite eugeniscist and corporatist.

      George Soros is a lower-rung puppet. We don’t hear about the real powers behind the scenes. He’s just one of many who have sold their souls for power and wealth, having betrayed his own people to join the NAZIs for personal gain. But then, they’re all despicable.

      • Pathfinder

        Kate8: Glad that you identified Soros’s Nazi heritage.
        This seems to be a little known element in his background.
        Thank you for adding it and Maurice Strong to the dialogue

      • Kate8

        Pathfinder – Unfortunately, the people who need to know who these people are refuse to look at it.

        I had a discussion with a staunch liberal/dem Jewish fellow last week, and he refused to believe that the Left was anything but the champion of the working class. I gave him links to info on Soros, but I don’t know where it went from there…

        Until people wise up and stop supporting these D/R parties, they’ll stay in power. Many on the Right are waking up to this, but the Leftists defend their lying leaders in the face of all evidence. They just seem to want to cling to their denial. I can only guess that it has to do with the fact that, without their political leaders, they have no power to look to…

  • Joe America

    Like Hitler, Obama’s powers are being expanded, which will give him, or Romney, dictatorial powers over the American people. Perhaps something is coming, of which, the Administration and Congress are more aware of than the general public. Worse, something contrived has been made up to justify giving so much power to the office of the President. Something wicked this way comes, we just don’t know what it is. And, sadly, no one is telling us. We’ll just have to wait until TSHTF.

  • auhunter

    Why in hell do you think our forefathers mad 3 branches of government? so no ONE would have total control of the government. It seems that Congress has totally forgotten what they are there for, to SERVE and PROTECT the people of this country.

    • Pathfinder

      Yes Congress has totally abandoned it responsibility under the pretense of being all things to all people. D or R it matters not. At one time Congress made and passed laws. Laws that were judged un-constitutional were declared as such and returned to congress. UP to the Obama AHCA the supreme court legislated form the bench thus relieving congress of responsibility and embarrassment. Thus the great surprise when CJ Roberts declared the “penalty’ a TAX and shoved the AHCA to the peoples laps.
      As you may recall Obama kept calling funding a PENALTY and said it was not a tax.
      The SC ruling shoved Obamas lie right up his axx and thus his embarrassment which went little noticed by most and the especially a corrupt press

      They knew what they were doing when they sold us out. Like I said, they consider us all dead. They are looking out for themselves, having sold their souls to the Illuminati for a place in the bunkers to wait out the culling to take place on the surface. They believe that they will share in ruling the planet when they re-emerge.

      They are nothing but higher level slaves, and they will never have what they think, even if things go the way they plan.

      Their whole thing is based on predictive programming. They give us movies, TV, music…everything to tell us how it’s going to be. We believe it and hold it in our minds, with great fear and emotion. This is so that we create the reality they want out of our fear.

          The right to bear arms is the people’s right to bear arms against its own government when that government crosses constitutionally established boundaries.

      Folks need to go see “Obama’s America: 2016.” It’s a real eye opener for those who claim to love America, but voted for him. This guy is a dyed in the wool communist and anti-American. End of story. If he’s re-elected, it will be the end of this nation, as he has dedicated his life to fullfillment of his father’s dreams to end all colonialism and bring down the USA. Every person who voted for this man is a fool and I believe they will all repeat that mistake this November. The fact is that there are more non-producers than producers in this nation. Those of you who have worked to save for your retirement will have it taken away from you, in order to “spread the wealth.” Obama would have you believe that he just wants to tax “millionares”, but, that’s not true. He wants to tax every middle class working person, regardless of race, religion or creed. His goal is to erase the middle class of America, bringing us down to the level of the third world. He’s a brilliant, wellspoken manipulator, who knows just what to say to sway the masses, you know? Like Hitler.

  • Maxine

    I agree with your comments Joe America, I just saw the movie 2016 tonight, my eyes have been open ever since that election in 2008 – we need to take back our Country but, unless we return to God and the basis on which this Country was founded I’m afraid we are truly headed down the wrong path. Expand the power of the President, he just does what he wants anyway and is slowly taking away our freedoms. He is a evil person who does not care one iota for us or any decent values other than his own – frightening and dispectible. God Save America that is my prayer.
