Obama Shreds The Constitution Again

Obama Shreds The Constitution Again

Guess what? Barack Obama has found an opponent whose approval ratings are even lower than his own. So to kick off his re-election campaign, he’s decided to run against Congress.

The campaign against the obstructionist, do-nothing Congress started in earnest last week, when Obama decided to ignore the U.S. Constitution, recent Presidential tradition and even his own vote when he was a U.S. Senator by making four “recess” appointments.

There was just one teeny tiny problem with the stratagem; Congress wasn’t in recess.

In case you missed the story — which was easy to do, because most Americans neither cared about it nor understood it — let me give you a condensed version of what happened. This is no mere tempest in a teapot, by the way. As I’ll explain below, this seemingly silly confrontation could have enormous legal implications for our country.

The brouhaha began last month. Rather than adjourn for the Christmas holidays, Republicans in Congress decided to do the absolute minimum to keep Congress in session, holding “pro-forma” meetings every three days. Basically, all it took was one Senator showing up, declaring the session open and then gaveling it closed a few seconds later.  Most times, the session lasted less than a minute.

The reason for doing this was to prevent the President from making “recess” appointments of some of his more controversial selections. Normally, the Constitution requires Senate confirmation of important nominations. But Presidents have been able to bypass the “advice and consent” requirements by making “temporary” appointments when Congress is in recess.

By the way, there is nothing new in this strategy. Democrats did it routinely during the last two years of George W. Bush’s Presidency. In fact, Obama was one of the most outspoken supporters of the ploy when he was a lowly senator from Illinois. Now that he’s our imperial President, the situation is different. Or so he says.

Clearly, what is perfectly OK for Democrats to do (stymieing a Republican President) becomes “obstructionist maneuvering” when the shoe is on the other foot. A week ago, Obama announced that he was making four “recess” appointments: Richard Cordray as head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Board and three other people to fill openings on the National Labor Relations Board.

The Wall Street Journal pointed out in the recent editorial “Contempt for Congress” what was wrong with the President’s strategy:

The last clause Section 5 of Article 1 of the Constitution says that “Neither House” of Congress can adjourn for more than three days “without the Consent of the other” house. In this case, the House of Representatives had not formally consented to Senate adjournment. It’s true the House did this to block the President from making recess appointments, but it is following the Constitution in doing so. [Emphasis added.]

Faced with this blatant disregard of both tradition and the Constitution, House Speaker John Boehner went ballistic. He denounced the White House power grab in no uncertain terms:

This is an extraordinary and entirely unprecedented power grab by President Obama that defies centuries of practice and the legal advice of his own Justice Department. The precedent that would be set by this cavalier action would have a devastating effect on the checks and balances that are enshrined in our Constitution.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate, joined the chorus of condemnation. He blasted Obama for “arrogantly circumventing” the confirmation process.

What’s really going on here? Clearly, our national security wasn’t threatened by these four positions remaining open for a few more weeks.

No, as William Shakespeare observed in a different context, “the game is afoot.” In this case, the “game” is getting Obama re-elected. Since he can’t run on his record, he has to find an opponent who is even more unpopular than he is.

How about picking a fight with a “do-nothing” Congress? After all, Americans have an even lower opinion of Congress than they do of the President. Recently, the approval rating for Congress fell to a basement-dwelling 9 percent.

Now you know why the White House engaged in “a deliberate, and politically motivated, provocation,” as The Journal noted in its editorial on the subject. The Journal continued:

“Recall the stories over the New Year’s weekend, clearly planted by the White House, that Mr. Obama planned to make a campaign against Congress the core of his re-election drive. One way to do that is to run roughshod over the Senate’s advice and consent power and dare the Members to stop him.”

Obama deliberately threw down the gauntlet. Now let’s see what leaders on the Hill do about it. Frankly, except for some heated rhetoric, I suspect they won’t do much.

But the buck won’t stop here, no matter what the President says. Already, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is considering challenging the legality of the appointments. If it does — and the courts support their position — it could mean that every ruling the National Labor Relations Board makes and every new regulation the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issues will be void.

It won’t happen overnight. It could take years for lawsuits to be filed, hearings to be held, courts to rule and appeals to be heard. In the meantime, if you run a business that is affected by something the NLRB has decreed, what do you do? Do you spend (potentially) millions of dollars to obey a regulation you think will be overturned?

I suspect the President neither knows nor cares about the pandemonium his actions may create. Obama isn’t worried about what might happen a few years from now; his total focus is on what happens 10 months from now.

So what if he has to tear the Constitution to shreds to stay in office? After all, he has shown nothing but disdain for its limitations on his power up until now. Why should today be any different?

This fireworks show is far from over, folks. The eruptions will continue at least until the first Tuesday in November.

Until then, be sure to keep some powder dry.

    I beg to disagree, Chip. Obummer’s unconscionable behavior DOES affect the nation’s security. What we have here is far worse than a mere failure to communicate. What we have here is an arrogance that is so alien and anti-American that the Constitution is literally a TARGET.
    As I recall (someone correct me if I’m wrong), but a certain “PREZ” took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution a little more than 3 years ago. Even in a utopian’s dream world, NO ONE can preserve, protect and defend the Constitution when a prez is busy shredding, manipulating and ignoring it.
    WHERE are the ‘Democrats’ who pretend to LOVE the Constitution? WHERE are the COMPASSIONATE, elected gurus who know the difference between a pretender and a REAL president? WHERE are you worthless SOBs?
    Either we have a working, functioning Constitution, or we DON’T. And if we DON”T, WE HAVE N O PRESIDENT. And IF we have NO president, it’s King George II time, America.

    • Old Henry

      Well s c, we obviously do not have a functioning Constitution, or Little Barry the Communist Kenyan foreign naitonal would not be where he is.

      He does indeed view himself as King, or . So let it be said. So let it be written.

        and if they dont, start removing congress thru impeachment for failure to act.

    • Jim

      Obama took an oath to protect the U.S. Constitution but not the U.S. Constitution as we know it. His oath is to the Obama Constitution as he see fit to fellow.

  • Jack

    Obama’s made 28 recess appointments so far, at this same juncture in Bush’s presidency he had made 61 recess appointments. So what’s the problem folks? I guess it’s only considered shredding the constitution if you’re a black president.

    • Vicki

      Apparently you (Jack) did not actually bother to read the article the OP posted. Otherwise you would know what’s the problem. Here is a clue.

      “There was just one teeny tiny problem with the stratagem; Congress wasn’t in recess.” – from the OP

      Now did President Bush just happen to make his recess appointments while Congress was NOT in recess? Be prepared to cite your evidence.

      Btw it is rather common for liberals to play the race card thus showing their bigotry.

      • EliWhit

        Vicki Nice job on the Liberal imbecile Jack wonder if his last name rhymes cass without the ‘c’! What you want to bet it does!

      • Flashy

        As the article states..if Congress desires to challenge it, then it may. As I wrote when the President first made the appointments, if McConnell and Boehner want to go in front of the cameras, and state that they are appalled about the appointments and that while the President has a job to do and they were preventing it being done, they can hold up appointments and let vital and serious posts go unfilled, even though the appointees are qualified as they themselves admit…because they are placing politics and self serving special interests ahead of nation…

        They can go right ahead and make the case.

        What is puzzling is that it is the Senate which is failing to do the job it is desginated to perform, and the Right is not screaming about that issue. If the appointments were amde of candidiates which had baggage or were controversial, then there would be a defensible position to the failure of the Senate GOP to govern. But there isn’t any. So why isn’t the Right screaming about it? Why is the Right satisfied with continuous failing of the GOP to work for America instead placing politics and special interests above that of this nation?

        I note Chip does not mention that fact of the failures of the GOP to place nation above politics and special interests. Why is that Chip?

        Why are you folks criticizing the President FOR TRYING TO DO HIS JOB when the GOP in Congress are failing to attempt doing theirs ?

        It isn’t President Obama who created this situation. Far be it. And those who try and place the blame of the President are misguided and not acting in the interests of this Nation. At that point, the only question is…is that unwarranted criticism merely out of ignorance and being unknowing…or is it deliberate.

        Do you support placing politics and special interests above the nation? if so…why. Why do you support the GOP blocking necessary and vital appointments when the GOP has no issue with the appointee’s qualifications. Go ahead Chip … answer that.

        • s c

          Effer, how old were you when you had yourself physically and mentally neutered? You are EXACTLY the kind of semihuman puke who proudly followed Hitler until they were FORCED to admit that some followers are just as evil and corrupt as their worthless, wannabe gods. Common sense and intelligence have been eradicated from your gene pool, comrade.

        • TML

          “Why are you folks criticizing the President FOR TRYING TO DO HIS JOB when the GOP in Congress are failing to attempt doing theirs ?”

          Because despite the failings of Congress, or their special interests, they were following the Constitution in order to do it. The President, “trying to do his job” disregarded the Constitution… which considering he made an oath to uphold the Constitution; such violations are not his job. The post to which he was trying to appoint were not critical.

          Just yesterday you stood up to applaud a blocking of an Oklahoma amendment because of it’s unconstitutionality. Why do you now negate following the Constitution in this matter? It’s time we stop worrying about left and right people and unite in our support to uphold the Constitution whether it serves your own interest or not.

        • annie

          As usual Flashy, you being the liberal/marxist you are, are WRONG. The Senate absolutely and completely had a hearing for the appointee, Richard Cordray and they REJECTED HIM. The second appointee obama chose was submitted to the Senate on Christmas Eve, for goodness sake. obama new very well that he was intending to commit (yes COMMIT) this heinous UNCONSTITUTIONAL act and planned for that action accordingly.
          You need to acquaint yourself with the facts before you talk.

        • FreedomFighter

          You Flash have clearly sold your soul to the darkside, in doing so you sell out the American people.

          Know that the evil you support will kill millions in the United States, and billions around the world. To know the truths you have seen on this board alone, and to still spew what you do…you have chosen evil. You think you will have a place in the NWO, dont count on it, look at history, tyrants in the past quickly killed your type after they gained complete power.

      • Flashy

        You are calling me an idiot because I am slamming the GOP in the Senate for not allowing a vote on qualified candidates which even the GOP cannot find fault with? So…what about the job the President is supposed to be doing? You’ll criticize him for not doing it because the Senate GOP is refusing to move vital and needed appontments forward?

        ASo tell eeryone…just how long have you been open as being anti-American?

    • Old Henry

      Actually Jack, he is a half-black “president”.

      A black president would be a Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Walter E. Williams, J. C. Watts. Someone who is actually black, and a U.S. citizen.

    • Dntmkmecmoverther

      Hey, JackS…it’s how the ‘recess’ appointments came about. They must occur during an actual RECESS. This coward president has whined and maneuvered so much that the house and senate agreed NOT to go into recess as a means to reign in this dictator; but that didn’t stop Obummer who doesn’t give one ounce of credence to our founding document.

      We had all better wake up or we will one day be eating grog from our gulags.

    • groovydiamond

      I’ve always contended that whoever plays the race card first, is INDEED the racist! Because only racist minded folks have that in the forefront of ALL their thoughts. I have non-white (not just black, but latino and middle eastern) friends that have cost me hours of convincing that not everyone thinks that way – John and Jane Doe, Mr. and Ms. Public for the most part DON’T think that way.

  • http://deleted Claire

    This is the research I found concerning recess appointments:

    Reagan — 240
    Geo. H.W. Bush — 77
    Clinton – 139
    Geo. W. Bush — 171
    Obama — 29

    Same old, same old, others can do it, some cannot.

    • JDA

      I do not recall anybody ever saying this was right, it makes no difference if it is republican or democrat doing it, the big difference is Obama has trashed the Constitution and slowly turning this country into a police state. You can bet I am ashamed that a Republican senator, John McCain introduced the bill that now allows for US citizens to be arrested and held in FEMA camps. It is disgraceful what is going o in Washington today and yes, republicans are just as much to blame as the corrupt king in the White House now. If you Obama groupies can not see or more likely refuse to see what is going on in Washington, I guess that explains why so many followed Hitler in Germany and took part in what he did. It makes no difference if you are a democrat or republican, both are to blame for what is going on in Washington and until Americans start holding our elected officials accountable, it will never change.

      Last night I watched a movie called “The Aviator.” A movie about Howard Hughes and in one scene a senator tried to get Hughes to back off trying to get TWA set for international flights which PanAM had a monopoly, Hughes refused and found himself in front of a senate hearing. Hughes tore that senator apart with all the payoffs and deals that senator made while in office. As long as we just take everything for granted, it will only get worse. We need to call every elected official on the carpet about where they are getting campaign donations from and you can bet, the democrats get as much if not more money from special interests than republicans and there is nothing racist about it. Obama is a crooked lying politician, one of the crookedest ever and there is nothing racist about standing up and speaking out about what this crook and his accomplices are doing to destroy this country and our freedoms. You Obama fanatics need to pull your heads out of your backsides, because what you have for brains is showing!

      • Dntmkmecmoverther

        The ‘race’ dilemma is alive and well because liberals keep pulling it up as their weapon of choice; and since it IS their weapon of choice, they must maintain that weapon by keeping a minority class of people in poverty, who will keep coming to the liberal trough of entitlements rather than teaching these poor folks how to break free of the ‘slave trade’ perpetuated by the antics of the left.

        Claire, that makes you and your ‘kind’ the worst of racists. Look at your track record and tell me any different result.

        • http://deleted Claire

          Look at my track record? What about your own? Don’t pin the racism crap on me. It won’t work. I simply made a comment– and you and others are trying to make it racist. You are proving my point-racism is alive and well by making it a big deal. It seems the ones that scream the loudest are the guiltiest? You decide.

    • Flashy

      Go ahead Vagabond…what about the quality of the appointments. Even mcConnell and Boehner can’t come up with any issue on the quality of the people appointed.

      • Dntmkmecmoverther

          Seems to me McConnell and Boehner disagree with you. Both have recently stated he was ‘eminently qualified’.

          Note that every appointment Pres. Obama has made during the fake “sessions” (in which no work was done)…not one…NOT ONE..was slammed for character or unfit for the post.

          And you slam the President because the GOP is placing politics and wealthy special interests above nation? just when did you turn into being an Anti-American? You proud of being anti-American?

  • Dale

    AND, the justice department has said that even tho congress was not in recess, the appointments were okay. What else would you expect from a group of people who defend Bill Clinton lying in court (committing perjury and then wanting to argue about the definition of “is”). Obama can make recess appointments. He is not allowed to do so when congress is in session. And here we go again, arguing about the definition of “is” only this time it is about the definition of “recess”. No wonder most of us are becoming seriously cynical.

    • Dale

      OR that Bill Clinton redefined “having sex” to not include a BJ, so now what is the most common form of recreational sex in High School? Of course it is not “having sex”, it is a BJ. Now, if you disagree with anything the liberal folks have to say, you are cast as a racist. Again, no wonder so many of us are cynical. I am beginning to doubt the ability of anyone to save our country. We may have already become the next Yugoslavia.

      • Flashy

        Clitnon was not the one who first stated that definition. It was first used by Gingrich when he was caught bompin’ a younger woman instead of his wife, and two other GOP members who were diddling pages. Clinton took it from there. Besides…if a BJ from Monica was what caused Cliinton’s fantastic record aof acheivements, i’d say we should have put Monica in bush’s office…anything to have helped that frippin’ disaster of a sorry excuse of a human being…

    “Obama Shreds The Constitution Again” Since the man does not believe in the Constitution and it is just a nasty little paper that gets in the way of him being a total dictator. His recent appointments are just a way of showing how he will do anything to circumvent it. Impeach him now. This process must be started and maybe then the insanity will be stopped.

    However, with a spineless, gutless Congress nothing will be done and the Kenyan will continue to make them irrelevant. I’m guessing that by next November he will have many of them re-located into FEMA camps.

        Flashy, in order to be honest, you need to change your moniker to ‘dimbulb’. Obummer indeed brought the idea of the military paying for their own health care. It was debated and voted down.

        Also, obummer has invested $2 million of his own money (who knows how much of his reelection funds…) to seal records of his past which any other president would have had to make open in order to be properly vetted.

        3rd: Obummer instructed his justice dept. (read that as AG Holder) to not prosecute violence at polling places if the perp was black and the victim was white. And we saw proof of this when the New BP intimidated voters at a voting place and were NOT indicted.

        My gawd you are stupid…and a liar.

        • Flashy

    President Obama continues to ignore and violate the constitution. Nothing new here. the real problem is that congress is failing to do its job and impeaching him. It is the duty of congress to impeach the president when in clear violation of the constitution. They need to be voted out together with the president. We the people are supposed to be in charge and government is supposed to respond to us. We need to return to our constitution before we loose our sovereignty and become part of the new world order essentially loosing our freedoms and liberty. If we listen to our brain and not what the media tells us, we can only conclude that Ron Paul is the only candidate with a chance to restore our once great nation. God bless America!!!

    My question is what will the Republicans do about the appointments? I think nothing but make a bit of noise then go on as usual. I think they are afraid of the Democrats. The Democrats stand firm Republican bend to please.

  • Dave

    Mark Warner from VA took the Senate out of session BEFORE the appointments. Maybe the GOP needs to think about the country before their narrow-minded ideology. The GOP said the man was well qualified for the job and the only reason the GOP held up his nomination is to make sure Obama does not get this way and because they don’t like Dodd-Frank, a law which passed through even the obstructionist US Senate. Deregulation ruined our economy along with ad trade policy and tax policy and the right wing loon’s solution to the economy is more of what got us into trouble.Chip and others like him are full of it.

  • Jim

    I truly believe that Obama can win a 2nd term. When you have 47% pay no taxes, why would they vote Republican. The Republicans can win if they put up a good solid conservative, but will they. Too many top Republicans want a middle of the road candidate like McCain. Republicans are dumb when it comes to remembering the pass election. We can see what wins and what lose and they let public opinion (media) pick their candidate. I have also said that Obama only has to run in about 3-4 states to win. He cares less about what middle American thinks of him, we don’t have the electoral votes to bet him.
    So unless something happens in the next 6 months Obama will have a 2nd term.

  • Jay

    Well folks, i’d love to get into a “Let’s bash Obama” session, but the obvious reality is that, Mr.O would not be able to perform his so-called evil deeds against America, if he were not in a position, and, supported by an hopelessly, corrupt-political-system, that aids and abets, and is in obvious collusion! Obama is not the root cause of what ails America, he is merely the symptom!

    • AJ

      That’s right Jay and the corrupt-political system will support, aid and abed him into dictatorship!

  • JM2122

    And the same corrupt political system has already anointed Romney. More of the same. We need to quit listening to the media claiming he is the most electable and most likely to beat Obama. That’s just their way of getting us to vote for him. The way I see it, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum are all politicians ready to take us into a war with Iran. We will go broke and the government will grow bigger. Isn’t it time to take care of our finances, our constitution and our children? Please give Ron Paul a chance before it’s too late for us.

  • Can’t Believe What I’m Reading

    I have never read such mean-spirited, uninformed, simple-minded drivel. EliWhit, if you develop a brain, you might be dangerous. Most of the rest of you are clearly not able to read, because Obama’s birth certificate has been printed everywhere for those who can read. Has everyone conveniently forgotten who got us into the abysmal mess our economy is in? We were Bush-whacked. Bush went into Afghanistan and then didn’t finish the job because he was too intent upon punishing Iraq for their attempt many years prior on his father’s life. And Cheney was urging him on the entire time. When Haliburton got its award to clean up Iraq, which was unopposed because no other companies were allowed to compete, Cheny exercised his options with them. Now that he’s out of office, he’s enjoying the fruits of this corrupt company charging prices that assisted the decline in our economy. So Obama inherited the worst mess in American history – finishing a war that was all but vacated by the US in one country, and a war in another country that should never have happened, and finances in the toilet. I’m sure none of you care that Iraq was the first time an American President invaded a country that had done nothing to America. The war in Iraq, aside from many thousands of lives and probably millions of devastating injuries, cost us TRillions. Obama tries to pull this country out of the gutter, and the Tea Party decides they’ll do anything to make him fail, so they get obstructionists elected to Congress, and who suffers? Obama, their goal? Maybe, but mostly you and I. While you’re so busy tearing down Obama, let’s give a little credit to the obstructionists in Congress for their huge role in wrecking not only our economy, but practically shutting down our government from every side they possibly can.

  • JM2122

    Dear can’t believe what I’m hearing:
    Yes, Bush send us to a war with Iraq which should have never happened. He nevertheless had complete approval of congress (both republican and democrat) and had faulty intelligence claiming they had weapons of mass destruction. Obama promised change and transparency. He has repeatedly violated the constitution and has increased the national debt much further. He has not solved the problem but rather made it much worse. We are now more dependent on government than ever and on a clear path towards government take over of all our rights and liberties for the sake of protection. We are about to enter another major war with Iran over our intelligence claims that they are making a nuclear weapon. See the pattern here. Both parties currently believe in big government and think that they know better than we do how to care for ourselves. Review your European history and early american history and realize that history is repeating itself. Government is corrupt and is becoming a tyranny. We need to stop this nonsense before it’s too late. In days of old the people could successfully revolt. I don’t think we can revolt against the powers of government unless the military takes our side. We must elect Ron Paul to radically change the course of this nation and restore the constitution.

    The primary reason Congress has such a low approval rating is mainly Pelosi & Reid and the focus on Obamacare & the enormous amount of spending. When we are in dire straits as a Nation they concern themselves about enriching themselves and their constitutes with inside information at our expense. We the People need to enforce our own term limits and get rid of these bastards!

    Also, how can they do much more with $1 trillion adding to the deficit every year due to the fact that there has been no budget from this President and the entitlements just keep on escalating. There is a huge wave coming you need to protect yourself! I pray for my country everyday! OMG – Obama Must Go! I am so sick of this bull crap!

    • Stephen

      All Progressives in government must go; both Democrats and Republicans. They have been a plague on our lives for about 100 years. Once elected into an office, the elected official soon becomes a politician with their primary function; to stay in office. More government means more control over the results. Enslave the poor for their vote.

      • Dave

        Funny Liberals and Progressives get blamed by you when the past 30 years, its been Conservative dominated economic policy and we have a right wing activist Supreme Court and the GOP has only gone more to the right since Reagan. Reagan would be branded a liberal today. Plus I do not see a compliment in being called a conservative given their record on social issues since the birth of this country.

        • Stephen

          Funny, I just said Progressives and you added Liberals :-) I have to admit that Reagan was truly a setback for the Progressives. The Country united as we dug ourselves out of the Carter hole. The country boomed and everyone benefited. America was producing and government was happy with all the tax monies coming in. What we have now is appalling and is the result of the current and past three administrations.

        • Patrioit

          Dave,
          What is really funny, is that so-called right wing agenda, is called free market capitilism which has been tried and true; guess what it works. Keep on hoping for the Utopian Socitey that you crave, but, before that happens stock up on food and water just in case or you can keep on using your food stamps until the rulers take those away and you end up starving!

          • Dave

            Patriot,

            Sorry to have to break it to you… The “free market” doesn’t exist. Do we have one world currency? No… Do we have only one form of Gov? Economic model? No… Conservatives wrap themselves in the flag and worship something that does not exist. But the wealthy in this country appreciate your blind obedience as they make exponentially more money year over year via Pay to play policy making versus the middle class and poor. Go to sleep and pray for your Conservative savior to rescue you.

          • DaveH

            Newsflash, Dave has informed us that Free Markets don’t exist! Duh, thank you, Dave. Before you said that we didn’t realize that Government had completely taken over our once Free Markets. I’m so grateful to you.

          • DaveH

            People need to know that there are two kinds of Liberals — the Liberal Leadership and the Liberal Followers.
            The Liberal Leadership know darn well what they’re doing. They are intelligent people who are well-versed in the art of Propaganda. They know darn well that Socialism has never resulted in good economies. They don’t care as long as they’re on top. They will regale you with their feigned good intentions, but if you pay careful mind to what they actually do instead of what they say, you will quickly learn that they are the most colossal kind of hypocrite.
            Like Al Gore running around the World spreading the Carbon hoax, while burning hundreds of times the amount of Carbon-based fuels that the average person uses.
            Like Queen Nancy Pelosi, or Obama, both of whom party hardy and jet all over the world at taxpayer expense at the same time they denigrate rich people.
            Like Warren Buffet, the world’s 3rd richest man in the World, STILL — in spite of the fact that he claims Rich People should pay more taxes. Last I checked Warren was perfectly free to give all his money to Government, BUT he hasn’t.
            Like George Soros, currency trader, who claims to be a champion of the Poor, but still has $22 Billion dollars, and is doing his best to make his fortune grow while simultaneously diminishing the net worth of Mom and Pop who have saved cash money all their lives only to see it’s value rapidly diminishing and their dreams of comfortable retirement disappearing.
            Then there are the rest of the Liberals, the Followers who just have their vision narrowly focused on that Golden Trough filled with other peoples’ gold. In their Greed for other peoples’ money they have completely lost site of Morality, and they will parrot whatever Propaganda their Leaders dish out for them. They claim to be smart, yet invariably quickly resort to manipulative gimmicks (personal attacks, lies, slander, etc.) in an effort to silence their wiser opponents. The evidence is right there in front of their noses but it is greatly blurred because their vision remains narrowly focused on other peoples’ wallets. Ironically, the Liberal Followers, having developed few productive skills of their own, will be the first to go when the Liberal Leaders have finally gotten complete control of our lives. And after all their harassment over the years, those of us who knew better will have to endure their further whining as they beg for mercy and reap the rewards of their Immorality, Ignorance and Sloth.

    Here is the liberal, progressive Utopian dream; no racism, no poverty, equality for all, a chicken in every pot, no pollution, healthcare for everybody and house for all, blah, blah etc., etc. Here is the rub, the promise of a future Utopian world will never come. In a free society these things will always persistent and will never come to a end, that is why they keep on bringing these things up to divert our attention to class warfare and other nonsensical issues. We need to STOP funding the Utopian dream and take our country back, before it turns into something else.

    • Dave

      Can I ask you a question Patriot?

      What is wrong with striving for those goals? Trying to erase poverty is bad now? Polution too? Really?

      Now lets talk about the conservative utopia… Money above all else… Who cares if it is the right or wrong thing to do… Money is great… doesn’t matter if you have to destroy a few people or the planet to do it.

      Lets continue to have big money interests buy off our politicians
      Lets continue to send our high paying jobs to mexico, China etc for a few more dollars in the management’s pocket
      Lets get rid of the EPA so we can be more like China and be an environmental cess pool.
      Lets have freedom for all!!!(Except the dirty homosexuals of course, and those muslims… we don’t like them either…and those Mormons… Can’t trust them either because they are not real Christians)

        Your theory ignores the facts of our outragious humanity! Courage isn’t the lack of fear, it’s the individule victory over it! A good person isn’t one who only has good thoughts but rather one who feeds their good thoughts and strives to starve the bad!

        • Dave

          Ted,

          Again, what is wrong with striving to end pollution, poverty etc that is part of the liberal/progressive utopia?

          Tell me… Does your conscience prevent you from thinking in those terms?

          If there is no purpose to strive for the betterment of society… Why did anyone move to end slavery? Give women the right to vote? Or prevent poverty by instituting Social Security?

          Or do you just like to see yourself type right wing talking points?

          • Flashy

            Dave..Crawford was closer to the truth than I suspect he realizes it. As he stated “courage” is conquering fear. I take that as he believes everyone is born with fear. i would agree with him as to a minority of peole. An examination of today’s posts show how much the far right is moved by fear and hate (hate being an element of fear).

            They fear anything forward and new, they want the past because they know the past and have nothing to fear from it. They fear the future. Progressives and most rational people relish what the futre may bring.

            Right now, obama is on TV wanting to consolidate six agencies into one. In other words, consolidate, shrink and make more efficient commerce and trade agencies. He needs authorization from Congress.

            Any bets the GOP and the wacked Right will oppose it? the very thing they are screaming for…Obama wants authority to carry out.

            They found fault with snuffing bin Laden. they have found fault with the size of government workers decreading, they found fault with getting out of Iraq, they found fault with saving American manufacturing. They wanted lower taxes, but found fault when proposed by Obama. Heck…everything they stand for and scream for, if Pres. Obama proposes it..all of a sudden he’s a traitor and wanting BIG government.

            LOL …

          • Ted Crawford

            To throw the baby out with the bathwater is no less counterproductive than to devastate a current economy for the hope of a future economy! Particularly when the hope is based on a nascent technology that even the Scientists involved admit is still two to three decades from being able to handle even 50% of our energy needs!
            Have you read Dodd-Frank? Remember it was sold as “preventing too big to fail”? It, in fact, by virtue of the safety fund, insures the exact opposite!

          • DaveR

            Nothing is wrong with those stated goals, but what has been the result of government efforts to achieve them? For example re Pollution — some definite benefits, but today much overreaching by the EPA to the detriment of all. If the economy/financial system or civil structure collapses, there will be chaos and environmental gains will quickly be reversed, e.g. by burning whatever is available to keep warm and cook food. SS – perhaps good as initially conceived, but then expanded to become unsustainable, and it has resulted in too many people becoming dependent predominantly on it for their sustenance in retirement; what the government can give it can take away! The war on poverty — a failure according to the government’s own statistics, e.g. the number of people now on Food Stamps. Again, such programs result in more people becoming long term dependent on the government for their sustenance, destroying their self-esteem and incentive to try, and creating a class of lost people who feel unable to rise above their situation. And such programs have produced multi-generational welfare families. Such programs are too impersonal to be effective in contrast to privately administered charities, including those based on religion.

            Better question:
            How do you end war,smog,inflation,poverty,when those conditions have been extant since the dawn of civilization?
            When supposedly sane men have noticed and spoken of these conditions since humanitys beginnings?
            How do you throw the mantle of these conditions on your back and use them to act sanctimonious in front of unsuspecting voters?
            How can you fix the unfixable,and pander to those who see you as a saint for doing it?
            By creating regulations that cause monies to be given towards things that should be done by fellow human beings out of charity?

            That someone sees it as an opportunity to show their arrogance by acting as if they are right in doing so is incredulous!
            You are the reason why people pray in private now,instead of out in the street to show how pious they are.
            You are the reason why the conditions have not changed.
            You want to show the world how right you are by keeping the conditions the way they are so that you can be seen as righteous in your own eyes!
            How deep is the darkness in your heart?
            You can clearly see that the conditions havent changed no matter how much money you throw at it.But you have to have more for your good intentions so you take from those who earned the right to do as they wish with their own.
            Look no sane person wants war,smog,inflation,poverty to continue unabated.But folks need to look into their own hearts to give willinly to others,and not let others(gubment)give willingly of your earnings for you.
            That is the difference we speak of here.
            Not whether some are philanthropists with other peoples monies,but whether they walk the walk,or just talk the talk.
            Show the world privately what your heart says to it,but dont act santimonoiusly to those who do not wish to do that for themselves.

      The Constitution did not exist in 1555.

  • Tarp

    I believe the democratic congress under Bush started “pro forma” galveling action when they gained control of the Senate.
    The present Senate had voted on Cordray and did not have enough votes to appoint him. This happening makes the justice departments arguement wrong.
    The other three appointments had not been scheduled for hearings yet.
    The constitution is what our laws are based on. To violate that document is a violation of the law. If an action, rule or law was ok and approved by a man as a Senator, then he must certainly have the intelect to know that that action, rule or law should stand when he is President.
    Under our form of goverment, the proper thing for a President to do to get around such rule, action or law would have been to have congress create a new law making the action rule or law legal.
    Our founding fathers put these checks and balances in our constitution to get away from Kings and Dictators in order to have a better form of goverment.
    The first two years of the Obama administration we had a democratic senate and house. A great time for appointments.
    Know that it an election year and the people voted and change the house leadership to Republican all we will hear from the democrats and the President is that we cant get anything done due the obstructionist Republicans.

    It is glaringly clear that Obama has acted in violation of the Constitution . All of his past actions that passed unchecked by both the general public and the House have been but tests to see just how much he could get away with in his quest to destroy America as we know it and, replace it with a Marxist/Socialist/Communist State that has been his ideal since Harvard and before . He acts not in best interest of America , her economy , or her people . He acts only in the best interests of Barrack Obama . To remain in control until he has brought this Nation down or perhaps for life .
    Americans acted in the spirit of political correctness in the last election , a correctness that was in the spirit of America being a land of ‘Dan Beard Boyscout’ fair play and all that nonsense. Well , being politically correct is just what may destroy us . No one checked this guys record, how he ran for the Senate, did absolutely NOTHING as a Senator and immediately began running for President. Among friends I pointed this out and his qualifications asking what were they ? No one could give a clear answer other than its the right thing to do , and then “He can’t be worse than Bush” . Well , seems he is worse than Bush , who at least struck back against our attackers and kept us safe from a repeat attack . Not only is this fake president worse he is dividing the country in ways never before seen since the Civil War . As nobody in Washington, House or Senate is willing to or has the courage to stand up to Obama it is left to us, the voters to do it . We must unite as a Nation and Resoundingly vote this bum out by a land slide. You know what awaits if you don’t! GOD BLESS AMERICA

    • Thinking about

      Which Constitution are you referring, surely it is not the Constitution of the United States. Read up on Article II, §2, clause 2 and you will ind recessed appointments are allowed.

      • Vigilant

        what an idiot. What part of “the Congress was not in recess” do you not understand?

        • smilee

          The part of the Constitution that says they are and he accurately refers you there, go read it so you can respond based on fact not feeling or spin

  • Lynn

    As always, I decide to read the comments on this article and am shocked at what I see. I forget how vile you people are. You call yourselves Americans, and feel your patriotism is far above everyone. Someone said we must put country first. Which is only half right. God first, family and then country. When you put god first you will reject the vile attitude and love can fill your heart and then you can love your brother and sister no matter who they vote for or what color their skin.
    So much of what you say is absolutely wrong, I think it is because you just find someone to idealize and then believe anything they say. Who you idealize is clear and what you believe is clear. What is not clear is why. You can not continue to blame the “other” side. There is nothing wrong with holding people responsible for what they do. But that said, if you read a few of these columns it becomes clear, the democrats are the “bad” guys and the republicans are victims of the democrats. The other fact that becomes clear is you are not informed with the truth in so many areas. It makes me wonder where do you get your information from? I have watched Fox News a few times and I can tell you that they manipulate the facts or just plain lie. I am sure this will get me slammed by some of you, and that’s OK. You are entiled to your beliefs. I am not going to slam you for that, but maybe it is time for some of you to look past the usual places for information and try some others for a comparison. Then go to the source to get the truth. Most everything can be verified these days. You do not have to make a fool out of yourself repeating something that is not true or accurate. Some of the stuff that is written here is totally unbelievable.
    Liberals are not evil. What makes someone a Liberal? Look it up. We are about peace, not war. We are about freedom, liberty, little interferance of government, just to start. Does that sound evil? I have heard people like Rush Limbugh and Beck, say we are the devil himself. I would defend myself by saying, I am for sure not the devil, but I am a mother, wife, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin. I am a friend to some, a confidaunt to others. I work hard and play even harder. I honor my god, and respect my bothers and sisters of the world. I try not to judge others, thats Gods job. I help others when I can. I always try to honor those who are less fortunate than me. I try so hard to be a good person that it does offend me when people say some of these things. Again, where is the truth here? Where did you get this information from? Who said I was the devil? Did you check that out? Do you see what I mean?
    It is childish to call people names. I mean, Really? No one will take you seriously when your post is, your a poo poo head! State your opinion clearly and with facts and truth without taking the other person down with words and name calling. All that does is make you look stupid and you lose face.
    Some of you have good points to make, but it does not really go past this column. Why not join a group or something like that to get your opinions heard where it can make a difference.
    And my last point is this. I have always told my kids when being bullied or harassed, and they may feel like fighting back by hitting the other person but I would say, “just because he or she is acting like a jerk does not mean it is a good idea for you to do the same, it just makes you a jerk too”. We lived in a bad area, so they were faced with this delimea daily and yet they never were in a fight or whatever. I am proud of that. I would not be proud of what is written on these pages.
    And as far as that goes, I think it is time we join forces and kick congresses ass out and start over. This congress is so corrupt they cannot represent us. This is why we are in trouble. We have always had differences, but that does not mean we can not work together.

    • LarryH

      Sadly, what we call Liberal and Conservative these days has VERY little to do with the dictionary definition of these words. BOTH Parties have shifted their meanings toward Authoritarianism. The left tends to emphasize the socialization of America while the right tends to push for corporate freedom and personal responsibility. BOTH goals are wrong-headed, and ignore the fact that the Founding Fathers intended individuals to have the maximum freedom a society can allow.
      I do want to take exception to what you said, however. “We are about peace, not war. We are about freedom, liberty, little interferance of government…” If that were true, why did Wilson, FDR, AND Kennedy drag us INTO major conflicts? Why did Johnson expand Vietnam? Why did it take a Democrat Congress’ attack on Nixon to finally bring the war to an end? Liberty requires responsibility. Democrats do not love liberty, they love license. Look THAT up. And as to ‘little interference by govt, I had to laugh out loud at that one. Democrats gave us ‘no child left behind’, govt interference in schools, ALL of FDR’s ‘alphabet soup’ of bureaucracies, and much, much more. And I’m STILL waiting for Obama’s ‘change’ to reverse the ‘Patriot Act’ and disband the TSA, about the most interfering bunch of bureaucrats as have ever been assembled into one group.

  • Dean

    This blog is all the proof anyone needs to see that racism is not only alive and well in America, but that it is growing at a phenomenal rate. In my humble opinion, Tea Baggers, Birthers, and neocons are simply the new Klan. It’s only natural that the fact that the President is “half” Black, scares racist to death. They cannot spout their racists ideology so easily, but they sure try like hell.

    I sure hope all you hate-filled, anti-American scum get a life. Perhaps 4 more years of “President Obama” will be enough to cause you all to rid the world of your worthless lives forever.

    • Ted Crawford

      Your statement, Dean brings to mine one glaring question, why in the world did all these flagrent “Racists” vote FOR him in large enough numbers to elect him in 2008! Has someone been injecting a racist potion into the watersystem, or could it simply be that we’ve realized that he is not who he claimed to be and that his philosophys are not ours!

      • Smilee

        I doubt any racists voted for him in 08, that is just a guess on your part actually more wishful thinking that a guess. Racists in my opinion would never vote for any person with a drop of black blood in them, that is part of what makes them racist,

        • DaveH

          But Racists DID vote for Obama, Smilee:
          http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1108/15297.html
          “Fully 96 percent of black voters supported Obama”.

          • JeffH

            Smilee, that’s about as dumb a comment as it gets.

          • smilee

            Davie & Jeffie

            I read your article davie, says nothing about if any of them were racists it just says who voted for him. Makes me wonder if you two are the racists as you seem to think you know which ones of them are racists and it takes one to know one as they say. You call me dumb but your answers were a lot more dumber than mine

          • DaveH

            Sure, Sleepee, 96% of them just happened to like the Democrats.

    • Bob Marshall

      Apparently you haven’t read THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER, CORE of CORRUPTION, THE AUDACITY of DECEIT, or THE ROOTS of OBAMA;’s RAGE. Obama studied Constitutional Law at Harvard Law school yet he said the Marxist,(Saul Alinsky’s) teachings of ‘community organizing’” were more beneficial than anything he learned at Harvard. ” Educate and inform the whole mass of the people…they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson. ” If we expect to be ignorant and remain free in a state of civilization, we expect what never was and never will be…if we are to guard against ignorance, it is the responsibility of ever citizen to be informed. ” Thomas Jefferson. I for one, aren’t concerned with Obama’s race, i am concerned where he is taking America.

  • Ted Crawford

    I became involved in the political arena in 1968 after my first tour in Viet Nam. I became actively involved in 1971 after my medical discharge from my second tour.
    Over the years I’ve had differences with the Liberals, as well as the Conservatives. I came to value the Liberal philosophy as a vital and necessary counter balance.
    Today we are not dealing with the Liberal philosophy, they have been vastly overshadowed by the Progressive philosophy. The Progressive philosophy has no value to any save those who desire a one world far left government!

    • Dave

      Since 1980..

      Reagan 8 years
      Bush 1 4 years
      Bush 2 8 years

      GOP had Congress for 12 years

      20 years to the Democrats 11 years and Clinton and Obama are center right, NOT liberal or progressive. So I do believe you are talking out of the wrong end.

      Progressives want equality… not handouts… We want an equal seat at money table and you can’t get that when you can’t afford $1000 a plate dinners or to get your commercial on TV or hire a lobbyist on behalf of the middle class. Since the corporatist have been successful in destroying the Unions (7% of employees in this country are in union based jobs today thanks to our corrupt trade policy) That is the only voice working people have and it is no surprise that with the reduction of Union, the salaries for the middle class have stagnated.
      The most important issue in today’s America is to get big money out of the political process and to throw out both corrupt parties that dominate Corporatist America.

      • Tarp

        Dave,
        since 1945, the democrats have controlled all three President, House, and Senate 10 times.
        The republicans 2, most recently under George W Bush. And they went on a spending spree. Followed by Democrats controlling both House and Senate Georges last year where they continued to spend.
        Obama had complete control 2008- 2009 and they went on an even bigger spending spree.
        Now they want to put us deeper in debt by raising the debt ceiling again.
        Hows that work for you? I know my creditors shut me off if I get to deep in the hole.

        • Tarp

          I would care to add that the Democrats had a majority of Senators ( over 60) from 1961- 1967 and again in 1977.
          Republicans have never had complete contol with a majority since 1945.

        • Dave

          Complete Control???

          You obviously do not understand the political makeup of the Democratic party. How many filibusters were used from 2009-2012 in the Senate? The Democrats have liberals, conservatives, corporatists, middle of the roaders and in the Senate that cacus with the lone independents (One being a Socialst). We did not get the single payer HC option because of the compromise that had to be done with the conservatives in the Democratic part of that party. Who are the GOP liberals? Know of any? The GOP has moderates and differing degrees of right wingers. It is much easier to marshal the GOP to a single course of action than the Democrats and the record proves it.

  • alexa

    The Republicans are supporting this shredding through silence. Unless libertarians step up in the entire Republican party, Ron Paul’s efforts will be severely limited.

  • Bob Wilson

    Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper and he wrote the following:
    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
    Have you ever wondered if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
    Have you ever wondered if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.
    The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party.
    She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it’s because they want them in IRAQ.
    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
    There are no insoluble government problems.
    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people and they alone, are responsible.

    They and they alone, have the power.
    They and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
    What more is there to say?
    To every member of Congress who voted for the Bill, which they did not read — AGAIN!!! I want to know why they have not been impeached or recalled for failure to fulfil their fiduciary duties. We, the people, cannot read every Bill Congress debates and votes on, so we elect reps to do it for us; our reps did not read this largest, wealth-destroying Bill in the history of our country — AGAIN!!! But they voted for it anyway. That should be an impeachable offense… Revolt!

  • Gonzo

    You go Mr. Swinney! We need a lot more people like you in this country–people who can see through the GOP’s attempts to convince us to MAKE OURSELVES INTO SLAVES BY OUR OWN HAND! It is the GOP who want the One World Order, so their “sugar daddies,” the huge corporations, can continue to destroy what little manufacturing exists in this country by importing everything from Chinese sweatshops, all in the name of even more profits.

    Recently I stood at the front of a Walmart store with a $20.00 bill in my hand, (No, I am not wealthy and could not bet $10,000.00 like that nouveau riche a55 who is running for president), and told my friend if he could bring me a non-food product made in the U.S. in the next twenty minutes, the twenty was his. Needless to say, the money went back in my pocket. (By the way, Walmart is the DEVIL.)

    Regardless of whether it is Dems or Reps doing it, the gavel in and gavel out congress is wrong. If the constitution upholds this, it needs to be changed! Congress had months to work on this appointment and refused just so they could paralyze an agency. It was they who were playing the system, trying to paralyze an agency who they do not like, rather than being true to the constitution and passing legislation to abolish the agency.

    The childish crap needs to stop! The first step is to abolish filibusters entirely. Most of us would punish our children for the playground equivalent of a filibuster! Another necessary step is to overturn the Supreme Court decision in “Citizens United” by constitutional amendment. The final step would be to abolish political parties altogether, and make each candidate stand on their own merits and policies, with no “US” and “THEM” b.s. rhetoric to support them. Only when the filtering system that is political parties is removed will we get to vote for someone better than the current crop of morons, thieves, philanderers, and con men the GOP is offering to us in the coming election.

      • Gonzo

        It is always the same: when someone cannot answer an argument made, they resort to name-calling and personal attacks against the person. Do you really want to know what I am? I’m glad you said yes!

        I am an independent voter who owes no allegiance to any political party. I have voted in every election since I turned 18, and there have been quite a few, as I am 50 years old.

        I am an independent voter who will always vote for the person who I feel will do the better job, regardless of party affiliation, and this usually means voting for the lesser of the evils offered to us by the strangling political parties.

        I am an independent voter who believes that there are good and bad ideas on both sides of the political isle. I am not a conservative and I am not a liberal. I refuse any such classification, as I have real problems with both.

        I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms it guarantees to every law-abiding American citizen. I would never vote for anyone who would try to lessen that right. Obama stated during his first campaign for president that he would not take guns away from the people, and he has kept his word.

        I also support the current safety nets we have in place for the citizens of this country. I get sick and tired of hearing that we are broke and can no longer afford to help our own people, while we continue to send billions and billions of dollars overseas. If we are broke, we need–no must!–stop sending money to other countries! And I mean stop it all–every damn dollar! We need to tell Israel to pull on their big-boy panties and man-up at the same time we are pulling the sugar teat from their mouths. The sixteenth richest nation in the world, and we are borrowing billions from China and giving it to them, while the American tax-payers are paying the principal and interest for them! That goes for all nations! We must take care of our own first!

        We are being told that government is the problem, but that is just a diversion. The real problem we face is that government has been bought by the huge corporations. They must have our votes for their paid puppets to put them into office, so they must trick us into voting ourselves into slavery, just as I said. If you do not believe me, then read the words of Robert Ringer who writes for this very website. He states the goals of the corporations and corporatists very well:

        “But wealth has to be created. It takes money, management and labor to produce all of those cars, buildings, computers, television sets and iPods. The predicament that America now finds itself in is that there’s a lot of money and management around, but not enough labor. At least, there’s not enough labor at a cost that allows companies to manufacture goods at prices consumers are willing to pay.
        Of course, there’s plenty of labor in places like China, India, Pakistan, Ecuador, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Haiti, Thailand and many other countries. So it’s no mystery why these countries now produce a great deal of wealth.”
        “The reason the Western world is broke is because it doesn’t have a workforce that is willing to work at wages that are competitive with non-Western nations. And the reason workers are unwilling to accept internationally competitive wages is because they can afford to be choosy. Unemployment benefits, food stamps and other forms of welfare remove the motivation to work at any job that is available to them, at whatever wage is being offered, in order to feed and clothe their families.”

        There you have it, stated by one of their own! They want to remove all safety nets, so that U.S. citizens will have no choice but to work for whatever wages the corporations are willing to give, and those wages must be competative with wages in China, Pakistan, Haiti etc. In other words, they want Americans to work for slave wages, and have no choice but to do so or starve!

        There are corporatists of both Republican and Democratic persuasion, but Republicans have far more of them. So go ahead, let them fool you into voting yourself into slavery. Let this country sink right into a feudal system where there are only two classes–the top 5% who own everything(the lords) and the rest of us (the serfs).

      Our governments problems all started by the obstructionist, do-nothing house in earnest with the tea baggers doing everything they think they have to make sure President Obama is a one term president. They don’t care if it meens jobless Americans starve to death or they cause the US to go into a deep depression. And you tea baggers are pretty ignorant to think the GOP congress men/women are pretty dumb because if President Obama wasn’t born in the US don’t you all think they would have had him impeached already? What the United States needs in Nov. is to vote all those obstructionist do nothing tea party members in our government back out of our good house so they can get something/anything done for WE THE PEOPLE instead of we the corperations. And Mitt Romney says corperations are people, that is crap.

    Good article, Chip. More evidence that government is out of control at all levels. Get the US out ot the UN, and get the UN out of the US. Otherwise, all liberty will be lost.

      I fail to see how so inaccurate an article could be described as good. Chip cites Article I sec 5 which has no relevance to his spin, for three days they are in actual adjournment thus they are in fact in recess. He fails to mention Article II section two which is relevant and reads “The President shall have the Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session” This part of the Constitution gives him that power and it only says Recess of the Senate and does not limit it to any time span only that they be in recess. This is grounds that Obama and his justice department base their acts on as being Constitutional and Chip totally ignores their position or tries to prove them wrong except by spin, no facts. I think Obama is on solid ground here and if the naysayers think other wise let them demonstrate they have the same balls as Obama and take him to court but if the court finds in Obama’s favor that would neuter Chip’s spin and put egg on their face. I doubt they got the balls to take on Obama on this and take the chance of losing this rhetoric as I suspect their attorneys think he is right on this but wilt not say this publically

        Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.

        Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

    It’s good to know there are so many people on this site with a brain, conscience, and morality. We have a very few good legislators who are run over by corrupted republicans within both senate and house.

    We have two mortal enemies – communist progressives and global monopolists. Both are after absolute economic control. After competition is eliminated and productive entities consolidated into one reporting control unit (polit-bureau?) the transition is complete – one usually overthrows the other, but they can share the control and loot,,, as is the case with China and the global financial barons. Either way, there is no freedom! We’ve been looted. If that isn’t treason, what is it?

    If you’ll notice there are no more local banks, retailers, restaurants, manufacturers, etc…etc…etc. Shall we call them “chains”… links in the financial pyramid – global monopolists??? Big isn’t necessarily bad, but monopolies rarely do anything good & the current globalists have proven the USA is mud under their feet – especially when they own the resource, communications, and government!

Take a look at James O’Keefe and his shenanigans and who does come across as a serious Republican clown. He’s the one who dressed as a pimp and helped to take down Acorn. Then he infiltrated NPR and tried to take them down also. Then he tried to break into Mary Landrieu’s office but got busted. Last week he was in New Hampshire attempting to prove voter fraud but he got busted on that one too.Then there is Bradley Manning who hacked into government computers just because he could. I don’t think any party claims him but it’s people like that that makes the government paranoid. Then they want to come down on everyone because of these jokesters. Then the nutty conspiracy theorist’s pushing their agenda is enough to make anyone crazy.They make claims that never seem to pan out but they think there is enough gullible people to accept it that the theories never die out.

    And the right wing point is again?

  • Thinking about

    Chip, you must have overlooked the portion o the Constitution Article II, §2, clause 2 which stated the president can make rexessed appointments. Actually a Google search could have cleared this up for you. Falsehoods will only convince those who wants to agree with you.

    • Smilee

      But this truth would blow Chip’s spin out of the water, I doubt he wants that, his goal is to distort reality not clarify it

    • JeffH

      Thinking about, I think you have overlooked the fact that the Senate was in fact “in session” during Obama’s unconstitutional appointment
      of Richard Cordray to serve as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB.

      Under Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the Constitution, the President has the power to fill vacancies that may happen during Senate recesses…that is correct, but…Congress is not in a recess because the House of Representatives never consented, as required under the Constitution, Article I, section 5. That means that the President simply does not have the power to make this appointment.

      Never before in the 100-plus years of precedent on the recess appointment power has a President taken such an action while the Senate was still in session. Yet notwithstanding that fact, President Obama yesterday decided that he would be the first.

      “[The recess appointment] power has been interpreted by scores of attorneys general and their designees in the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel for over 100 years to require an official, legal Senate recess of at least 10-25 days of duration. (There are a few outlier opinions, never sanctioned by the courts, that suggest a recess of six to seven days might be enough–but never less than that.)

      The President’s purported recess appointment of Cordray would render the Senate’s advice and consent role to normal appointments almost meaningless. It is a grave constitutional wrong that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has already denounced. But it fits a pattern of extra-constitutional abuse by the White House that seems more interested in energizing a liberal base than safeguarding the office of the presidency.”

      WASHINGTON, Jan. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, said today President Obama has violated the U.S. Constitution by by-passing Congress and moving forward in making a number of appointments.

      “This is a brazen, unprecedented power grab by President Obama,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “While the President is certainly permitted to make appointments when the Senate is in recess, these appointments clearly violate the Constitution because they have been made even though the Senate has not recessed. President Obama knows that. Instead of abiding by the Constitution, he’s plunging forward – ignoring the separation of powers – in an arrogant and unconstitutional manner.

      • Smilee

        Jeff

        You are trying to convince us that the Constitution is trumped by the senate rule “pro forma”(it requires three days and not the ridiculous number of days you spewed out). The Constitution states if the Senate is in recess then Obama has the authority to make these appointments as you admit, The Constitution only says that the senate has to be in recess not that it has to be in recess for three days to make it in recess, just in recess which they have in fact been in since before Christmas despite what they and you say. Graveling in the senate with one member present without a quorum present does not take them into session so they are still in recess, the Constitution also requires a quorum before either house can conduct business which makes it impossible to work on this appointment or any type of business, a believe the quorum required is a majority present. This is a gimmick and Obama had the balls to call them out on it, the ball is now in their court lets see if the Republicans have the balls to take him to court and challenge him. His DOJ legal opinion also concluded this. My guess is they don’t and further they want to be able to use this rhetoric which you also stupidly espouse here and they do not want to lose that ability as they believe this BS will work against Obama. I do not think it will

          • JeffH

            DUH Smilee, the senate WAS NOT in recess…and it looks like the issue will e settled in a court of law.

            Only one Senate Democrat, out of 51 asked, told The Daily Caller that President Barack Obama was correct when he claimed the Senate was in recess Jan. 3. That’s the day Obama announced that he had exercised his executive authority to fill four top posts during a Senate recess.

            Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid endorsed Obama’s decision as a way around GOP opposition, but pointedly refused to say whether he thought the Senate was in recess.

            Because Republican House leaders refused to go on recess, constitutional language required the Democratic-controlled Senate to gavel itself into a short session every three days.

            Prior to Obama’s decision, his administration and previous administrations had judged that a recess only occurs when the Senate is out of session for more than three days.

            The controversy began on Jan. 4 when Obama’s staff claimed that the Senate’s “pro forma” sessions — where few Senators were in town, and very little Senate business was conducted — were the legal equivalent of a formal recess.

          • Smilee

            Jeff

            Its the courts that will decide weather or not the Senate was in session, the opinion of no senator of either party matters, you see you conclude you know that they were in session when in fact you do not know anymore than any senator, saying it does not make it so, the bottom line is do the republicans have the balls to take to court, you know as well as I do no democrat is. The court will make that decision
            based on the Constitution not on wishful thinking like you are

          • JeffH

            I conclude based on whether a senator did or didn’t know whether the Senate was in recess? Yeah, If Senate Majority Leader Ried won’t even verify that the Senate was in recess, I tend to believe they were not…you’ve concluded that the Senate was in recess based on Obama’s own words(i.e. he is a documented liar)…Harry Reid wouldn’t confirm it, he just applauded the appointment…

            As I said and I saw that you too said it, the courts will settle it.

            NO NO NO!! I concluded that by my reading of the Constitution and had come to that conclusion before his DOJ released the memo, I believe at the request of the senate republicans. The fact that I came to the same conclusion as his DOJ is based on what the Constitution says you, however, admit you base you conclusion on the word of the senators. Your assumption of me are nothing more wishful thinking on your part to convince yourself you can prove me wrong on that basis, your dead wrong

            “All Vacancies that MAY happen DURING the Recess of the Senate”. Get it, Smilee? You can read English, can’t you, Smilee? This Vacancy DIDN’T happen during the Recess.

          • Smilee

            The only question of those challenging it is weather or not the Senate was in recess, If a vacancy exists during a recess it is happening at that time, that’s not in question. No one but you is questioning that and on no recess appointment has that ever been in question on that basis, the reason for the pro forma rule was by using this gimmick they can claim to be in session, many believe they are not and that is what the court will have to decide if anyone has the balls to challenge him. The pro forma rule would not be necessary for that if you spin on this was accurate. It is also a recent senate rule with a short history. It appears to me by not coming back in to session every three days with a quorum it is the congress who is violating the Constitution. This is only wishful thinking on your part

          • DaveH

            Apparently, Sleepee, reading comprehension is not one of your strong suits. The rule was obviously put in place to allow the President to replace an officer who suddenly quit or vacated the job for some other reason, and needed to be replaced quickly to keep that particular agency working. That is certainly not the case for Cordray.
            I know that you Liberals can twist and turn any words to suit your own purposes. Nothing new there.

    The Constitution is in the way … always in the way of the leftist agenda. The Tenth Amendment, though largely ignored, looms as a threat to the liberal dream of an all-powerful centralized government – that antiquated document written by white men. All it would take is one or two new Supreme Court justices who believe the 10th Amendment actually means what it says to turn the liberal big-government agenda on its head and return the bulk of American governance to the states, where it belongs.

    To progs the Second Amendment conjures images of armed patriots determined to preserve their personal liberty by force, if necessary. When your entire political philosophy is focused on centralized government power, the idea of the great unwashed actually being able to protect themselves from tyranny can be, shall we say, a little unsettling.

    The liberal statist agenda is, therefore, to denigrate the Constitution to the point that the dumb masses – who sadly make up the bulk of the American electorate, look upon it as a horribly flawed document, badly in need of revision at best, and a complete rewrite at worse. You will grow old looking for a liberal to sing the praises of the Constitution – a document that set in motion and created the framework for the greatest exercise in self-government this world has ever seen.

    But how to really demonize the Constitution and the men who wrote it? Easy … do what liberals have been doing so very well for decades. Play the race card. Tie our Constitution and our founders to slavery. If they’re connected in any way to slavery, then any works they do – no matter how good – are suspect and simply must be thrown in history’s garbage can.

    Liberals believe that if they manage to tie slavery to the Constitution, then the Constitution will lose legitimacy in the eyes of the people. You can almost hear the argument now. “The Constitution? You support the Constitution? So I guess that means you support slavery too, right? You’re a racist, and anyone who believes in the Constitution is a racist!” I can almost hear the words coming out of the mouth of some prog like Al Sharpton, Dick Durbin James Clyburn, Shelia Jackson-Lee or Maxine Waters (chose your own loon) now!

    I understand the politics of the day and the big compromises that were made to come up with a Constitution (Congress today should take a hard look at these compromises and learn a lesson from it) but never the less the non christian bunch got their way and slavery remained a reality. Tariffs were set on imported slaves and you could import them until 1808 and after that it became illegal at that time a big black market on slaves sprang up which cost a lot of black people their lives in mass killings if the slavers felt in danger of arrest. Your take on liberals take is nothing more than spin. This country most likely would not have come into being if slavery was gotten rid of at that time and the result despite its shortcomings was a big step forward and liberals understand that but still believe slavery was very wrong and not a Christian position and that is but one reason many liberals do not believe this country was born a Christian nation albeit Christians were involved with the process and agreed to the end result. But the devil was definitely at the table and held majority outcomes on some issues.

    • DaveH

      Slavery, like Socialism, was not an economically viable endeavor because people won’t work hard unless they get to keep most of the Fruits of Their Labor. It was dying a natural death throughout the world — peacefully — until Lincoln used it as a War Measure.

        Davie

        If that was the case then why is there so much slavery in the world today, it has never died it died as a legal thing in this country but the laws would not have been changed without Lincoln or someone like him, if it was dying a natural death why then did they fight to the death over it if it was inevitable

        • DaveH

          Read this book, Sleepee, by a black historian to learn the answer to that:

          And I must say you’re correct, Sleepee. Slavery is indeed alive and well, promoted by Greedy Liberals/Progressives who want to live on the backs of other people. So what are you going to do about that?

      I cannot take all this hatred by the so called conservative “think tank”! Fox News wouldn’t know the truth if it was shoved up thier behind. Doesn’t the Republican Party see anything but what they want to see? It use to be an intelligent, alternative to other ways of looking at this country but it has turned into a spoiled,closed minded, even hateful alternative for this way of life…the bottom line for the Republican Party has turned to “money” and they don’t care how many lies they spread to build thier fortune! People are incidental and God help them if they get in the way or voice another opinion.

      I found out just how cruel Republicans can be when my mother was dying; she did not have Medicare yet, she was only 64. I was told online by a group of conservatives, “too bad, let her die.” God how I would love to have those morons as my patients when I worked as a Respiratory Therapist fighting to keep people breathing and bring them back from respiratory and cardiac arrests! Unfortunately it is not in my nature to let anyone die! I did have the power to let it happen…they should have filled a form espousing thier political beliefs…that would give me the chance to think like a Republican for a few minutes; just for the enjoyment of getting even although I would have fought like hell to keep them alive.

      Why can’t any of you just admit the truth about President Obama? He is a black man and you just cannot stand it so it’s easier to find all the ugly lies you can invent…anything not to admit YOU’RE ALL RACISTS. By the way I’m a caucasion that cannot understand any of you; what’s more I don’t even want to try anymore. You spout the Constitution yet you
      condemn it everytime you open your filthy mouths….’Money is your God”! You know nothing of the real history of this magnificent country; you’re too busy rewriting the Constitution to say what you want it to say; it’s called revisionist history! What a bunch of sick, stupid people you are…you don’t want government interference unless it’s in the bedroom or under a woman’s skirt; you know, the internal intruments you pefer to to shove up a woman’s vagina? Don’t even ask what I would due to your male member…bunch of eunichs.

    I have been readind these comments and it is like listening to a bunch of kids arguing about whose dog was the fastest runner.Most of the people just don’t get it. Can’t see what our gov officals have and are still doing to this country.Obama is just one more air hole that is continueing this agenda to subvert our country to out side control and it is well on the way, out of control.For any one that thinks socialism(communism)is good they aren’t just mis guided they are stupid and you can’t fix that.Taking them out behind the barn won’t accomplish any thing just make them like you less.For the idiots that don’t under stand what these fema camps are for,just think why are puting razor wire around them it isn’t to keep them safe it is to keep them penned up and to keep the occupants from grting out.If the camps were a safe place to live there would be no need for the razor wire and a bunch of guards.

  • Ridge Runner

    Too many people can’t see the forrest for looking at the trees.The people are still blaming the democrats and republicans for the mess the country is inand in reality the whole mess has been done and attended to by both partys and they want to keep the status pro.that is why washington d.c. has been given the name of the rat hole. It is all about money and power and all of them are out to get as much as they can stuf in their pockets and stay in power. deerinwater can you get obama in with you and stand on him for about 10 mins. If you can i want you to see if you can last long enough to stand on about 75% of congres and senate that would go a long ways toward solving our current problems and maybe we could have a few good years before these ignorant,entitlement minded loafers votrd us back into yhe same position.

    Dave H and Old Henry, I agree with you…we cannot “impeach” Obama as he isn’t even a “legal citizen” to be in the White House! The only recourse we have is to arrest him and have a trial…as well as those who supported this illegal for election. Same problem with DOJ Eric Holder. If we IMPEACH…yes, they get removed from office, BUT, they get to walk away with no consequences…keeping all the money they’ve gotten and the “programs” they have instigated are still in place. I’ve heard the Pelosi is “retiring”…I think she is scared since her involvements have been brought out into the open. There needs to be trials. The offenses are treasonous acts against the United States AND the PEOPLE of these United States!! The movement within the individual States is where this is going to happen. You are also right that writing to your representatives does NO GOOD!! I have done this…I get replies of “how they voted…and why” but, bottom line, NOTHING is being done on a National level. Only the States are contesting in the Courts with any favorable outcomes. Go within your own States and challenge the ballots so Obama can’t even get on the ballot in YOUR State. How’s he even going to “prove” his electability??? Especially if every State demands it?? THAT is WHAT we can do!! We the People CAN do something, since our elected officials in Congress won’t! Quit sitting here, complaining that “SOMEONE needs to do something”. YOU are that SOMEONE!! Quit HOPING that Obama won’t win this next election. YOU make sure that he doesn’t by blocking him from even getting on the ballot. THAT’S our ASSIGNMENT…Now, get’er done!!

  • Raggs

    What was it a month ago when I told everyone here that king oblama was going to raise the debt ceiling yet again?… No it was 3 months ago.
    Guess what gurls… I’m not patting myself on the back for getting that right.. I’m also not going to pat myself on the back for my telling of how oblama ( king ) was in process of controlling the stock market… WOW how did we miss that one ?
    Oh did I mention the Irainian thing yet?… Well guess what wabbits… You have been set up once yet again… oh but you should be used to it by now?
    This is a key stroke as they would say…
    Ok so what else?… Hum, oh the little thing about oblama becoming a “leader” thing… Yeah we cannot miss that one… Not just any ole run of the mill leader though… He has to be ” the ” leader.
    Yup you think I’m crazy if you so wish but that will not do you any good.
    So here we are.

  • Truth Seeker

    First, I want to say something about the old “birther” issue (we have to find one valid way to stop the current occupant of the White House). I don’t for a second believe he was born in the U.S., but that seems like a dead end. But my question, to someone who can give the correct answer, is “did Obama’s mother surrender his citizenship when she and her son moved to Indonesia”, as the U.S. does not allow dual citizenship with that country. He came back to the U.S. on an Indonesian passport, which can only be issued to an Indonesian citizen, and he applied for student aid by registering as a “Foreign National”. Now, if he also wanted American citizenship once he settled back here, would be not be listed as a “naturalized” citizen and NOT as a native born American? Doesn’t having surrendered his citizenship mean that he can’t get re-listed as a “Native Born” American? And wouldn’t that mean that he cann’t legally be the President? In addition to spending millions of dollars to cover up his birth certificate, he also spent a ton of money to cover up his school records, which included his classification as a “Foreign” student. Is that fact not significant? How can a foreigner become a “native born” citizen? Can anyone answer that one for me.
    Second, my former brother-in-law is an Arab who, in the beginning of his marriage to my sister, showed no interest in any kind of religion. Then, after living for years in Saudi Arabia, he began to get familiar with the Koran as he studied a bunch of video-taped lessons from English-speaking Imams. I had always heard Muhammed described as “the final prophet of Allah, Jesus was the next-to-last prophet, and Muhammed came to complete the unfinished work of Jesus”. It appeared that they reverred the Holy Work of Jesus, until they justified murdering all Christians because Jesus was now seen as one of the “infidels”. But then this “unfinished work of Jesus” line led me to ask “what did Jesus leave undone that made it necessary for Muhammed to come as the final prophet?” You know what the answer is? According to the Koran, Jesus did NOT DIE ON THE CROSS FOR US. I even watched a video titled “Jesus did not die”, and the Muslim faith states in no uncertain terms that Jesus spent a few hours hanging from a cross merely as a humiliation (like the old pillary and stocks of Puritan New England days), and then the Romans pulled the nails out, bandaged his wounds, then sent Him home with a warning not to cause any more trouble. But He didn’t die, so Muhammed had to come. Of course, there’s no story that MUHAMMED died on a cross either, so I guess our salvation is still incomplete, but when I showed my brother-in-law a documentary on the Shroud of Turin, which is un-deniably the true burial cloth of Jesus, the wound in His side shows POST MORTEM BLOOD, meaning that the person whose image is on the cloth actually DIED. You can also explain that NO ONE went to the cross to just “hang around” for a few hours, that this was ONLY used as a means of EXECUTION, but the Muslms don’t care that their argument makes absolutely no sense. But you should have seen my brother-in-law’s face drop when he saw the post mortem blood stains. He said, first, “where did this cloth come from?” and then he explained that “if true, this cloth will destroy the entire Muslim faith”. He then said that “Muhammed was a prophet of Allah (i.e. God), and a prophet MUST be 100 % accurate or else he would be a false prophet deserving of death, and his writings (i.e. the Koran) must be thrown out COMPLETELY”. I knew he totally believed that the cloth was genuine and, therefore, he knew that the Muslim faith is false, but years later he said that he would still follow it because the people he did business with expected him to follow the Koran. It was totally for show if he wanted to earn a living, and so it became O.K. to murder the “infidels”, especially the Jews, along with Christians. And this is the reality we are up against. A false and demonic “religion” that preaches eternal rewards for murderers, and we had better see this situation for exactly what it is. And when you see Obama describe Islam as a religion of peace and the Koran as “the Holy Koran”, I think we’ve seen all we need to see of the current occupant of the White House. These people are coming after us, and they’re coming to kill us all, and we better stop pussy-footing around with them, or they just might succeed. Be warned.

  • WickedPickle

    To the Government.. The Constitution is just a piece of paper, just like the American Indian treaties was… Just a piece of paper.. (how does it feel now?). Rights and freedoms? An in-mind utopia only. We’re caught in a sea of inequity and the sharks are circling. Cut off their endless money supply (vote them out) take away their over-inflated pensions that they didn’t contribute one penny of their own money in and they’ll die off like roaches.

      The only place I see people screaming for impeachment is on this site and sites like it, vast majority of people do not see an impeachment procedure as wise and it would never succeed to conviction even if they could get get an impeachment. Republicans are still smarting from the shellacking they took over the Clinton impeachment and conviction attempts where they could not even get a simply majority much less a 2/3 majority. It was a slap in the face for them. It is the type of solutions that are so juvenile and immature.

    What is difficult to understand is what this traitor is not booted out and why our Congress allows this to continue. They all must go in 2012 as much as possible, but especially Obama! He is a true communist and Muslim too. Egad! and some of you voted for him I know. Well, stupid is as stupid does and now we all are paying the price for this mentally disturbed narcissist. Also, Benedict Arnold was killed immediately for being a traitor and Obama not? Why not? Why haven’t the fed marshals just marched in and removed his sorry butt. Biden isn’t swift, but is too dumb to be a marxist! so let him run whatever (altho we know that Reid and Pelosi control the Demos and run things)for the few remaining months of this presidency.

Who of our past Presidents had not appointed people to Office when Congress was in recess?

    • DaveH

      Obviously, you didn’t read enough of the comments.
      Obama’s appointment was strictly a slap in the face of Congress. It had nothing to do with keeping an existing agency running.

    What about his appointing members to the NLRB?? Can anyone remotely imagine a GOP president making the kind of appointments who would reform the NLRA to the way it should be?? The leftists/democraps would be ranting galore and calling for impeachment!! Why is this marxist-in chief BHO getting away with thumbing his nose at our Constitution??!! …. When I mention the proper NLRA reforms, I mean that the NLRB should side with workers, not union leaders who collect multiple salaries, drive around in silver Cadillacs, etc.!! The NLRB should make it easier for workers to decertify unions such as those which are just parasites – forcing workers to pay dues out of low (perhaps collusive sweetheart contract) wages. Remember that much of that dues (and initiation fees, etc.) money goes to the campaigns of leftwing democraps who are destroying both union and non-union jobs. Talk about 99% vs. 1%!! Think of union officials as the 1% under the current NLRA, and the rank and file workers as the 99%. It’s evident who gets a raw deal in many unions today. This can be resolved by enacting right-to-work laws in all 50 states (57 states for you Obama supporters) and DC. Likewise, why not allow companies to offer better wages and benefits to those who opt out of the unions, without having to transfer jobs to non-union locations?? It’s pathetic that so many otherwise good working people are duped by union organizers and officials into believing that unions are so great. LOL!! If unions are so great, why would so many workers vote against them?? Why are they shrinking as a % of the workforce?? And it seems evident that Obama sides with the 1% as opposed to the 99% on the issue of leftwing labor unions. WAKE UP!!

        I personnally do not rely on YouTube to obtain facts, etc. Though some may have the correct facts I would rather rely upon our Constitution, etc or sites which has checked their information.

  • James

    It looks like we all are off a little on this one. Article II, Section 2, Clause 3 reads: “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions whhich shall expire at the End of their next Session.” Since the Senate was not officially in Recess, they should have convened and considered Obama’s appointees.
    And Article I, Section 5, Clause 4 reads: “Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other Place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting.”
    If they had adjourned for more than three days, that would have been a violation of the Constitution, and by not adjourning, the Senate was legally obligated to consider those appointees.

  • Sam

    Millions and millions of words and nothing changes. Obama has taken full control of the government and nary a peep out of Congress and very little out of the public in general. It is very near time to turn out the lights, the party is over. The government never fired a shot!

    If our dictator cannot find an issue to propel him into office again, he may just decide to suspend the election and refuse to vacate the White House. Would anyone lift a finger to STOP him? Lots of whinning and hand wringing, but no substative action.

    wow what a one sided site….this is how the other half works…mmmmm…what a hoot….I’m thinking about all of the rights taken away from us by Bush under the Patriot Act along with Reagan and Bush Senior….in addition to the HUNDREDS AND I MEAN HUNDREDS OF RECESS APPOINTMENTS MADE BY THEM…..not even close to Obamas…..I’m in the middle but I can see there is only one side here…..and thats pretty frikkken funny…ie…a hoot

    Obama so far has averaged fewer than 10 recess appointments a year since assuming the Oval Office. This rate is considerably lower than Ronald Reagan’s, whose average was 30 a year, or that of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, who averaged between 19 and 17 respectively, or even George W. Bush, whose yearly average was 21.

    The real record belongs to [REPUBLICAN] President Teddy Roosevelt who, on December 7, 1903, during a blink of the eye recess between Congressional sessions, made 160 recess appointments.

    Get your facts straight. A president who does less than half of the “shredding” of the Constitution of his predecessor and less than a third of Ronald Reagan is suddenly impeachable as a dictator.

    Shut up already and you who write so much about how bad it is; do something. You always want some one else to do it. Gather all your intellectual selves together and start an impeachment process. Use your constitutional rights. Sounds like you all have facts, done your research, and know that our constitution is not being defended. You defend it. Use your time wisely, and not argueing so much about who, what, and why! Freedom is costly. It has a price. People like you are the ones that can get it done.

  • Dewayne Smith

    That sorry excuse for a president is no better than anyone else and anyone who defiles and craps all over the constitution needs to be dragged off to jail. That’s right! I said obama should be incarcerated in the smallest, darkest, rat and cockroach infested prison cell in the country and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi should be in cells on each side of our traitor in chief.

    They should be placed in leg irons and sent out on work detail to do the hardest, dirtiest, most demeaning jobs available and then turned out in the prison yard to endure every humiliation the general prison population could dream up. I wish nothing but misery and heartache for these subhumans who have brought this great country to the edge of the precipice and the world to the brink of a thermonuclear war.

  • judie

    Way to go Barack, run against a “do nothing congress,” that is the honest thing to do.
    Finally some truth in politics. In essence, President Obama is earning my vote again.
    Only 4 recess appointments What took you so long, Mr President?? YAY, Woo hoo.

  • judie

    Congress is not in recesss when ONLY ONE senator is present for one minute out of the day? Talk about snake oil salesmanship How is the senate available for business when there are no senators present to vote on anything? We, Americans, may be stupid..you elitists may be able to pull the wool over our eyes on occasion but we’re not all lobotomized yet. We know that if 99% of a jury are out then the whole jury is technically out since one member alone cannot vote on anything. Congress was clearly in recesss and the pro-forma tactic in itself is proof of Congress’ obstructionism. President Obama made the right call, shed light on GOP obstructionism for the world to see.
    Talk about having your cake and eating it too at the same time. The GOP have turned into entitlement happy spoiled brats who want to be in recess without putting in the work/sacrificing to actually be present. Entitlement loving hypocrisy is what it is.
    They can’t have it both ways, you want to not be in recess then don’t go on vacation & pretend you’re PRESENT. Any place of employment calls this scam “payroll fraud.” Congress is committing FRAUD, bunch of entitlement loving hypocrites, so long as they’re the entitled ones, it’s OK. Liars, scammers and sham artists the lot of them.
    You’ll just have to swallow 4 more years of Obama, TOUGH….we put up with the elite robbing us blind, wanting everything for themselves while pretending we’re the socialist when the elite are the real entitled socialist who want it all in the hands of a select few. Sham.

  • Bob Marshall

    Obama faulted the Supreme court for not mandating “redistrubution of wealth” even before he was elected. He was an Illinois state lawmaker and said that the legislative branch of government was the ideal avenue for accomplishing that goal. Obama is calling for a new “:progressive” constitution as is Holdern, Soros and Hillary Clinton to name just a few.Obama certainly knows the constitution , but he also knows how to get around its meaning. Do many in congress have contempt of the Constitution? Yes, since 70 members of congress voted to abolish the Constitution. Abe Lincoln: ‘Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. that must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” So far, Obama has ignored the constitution 16 times. john Adams once warned, ” A Constitution of Government once changed from freedom, can never be restored. liberty once lost, is lost forever. I believe because of so much ignorance, denial and just not caring is why we are were we are today.

    Okay, we’ve heard from the Liberal operative, Flashman. The usual double-speak, of course.
    For example, Flashman says “What is puzzling is that it is the Senate which is failing to do the job it is desginated to perform”. What job is that, Flashman? The Senators I elected are doing exactly what I want — resisting the further takeover of our country by a handful of Dictators.
    I understand, Flashman, that you want scofflaws, thieves, and murderers in your Government, but I want Politicians who will stop the onslaught against our Freedom.

    I will answer that !! What you people do not understand is that BOTH PARTIES want the same thing OBOMMA DOES. Both parties want to take us all kicking and screaming into the NEW WORLD ORDER. That is the bottom line. I`m sure there are some smart enough people on this site that can see that. Why do you think we have a DO NOTHING CONGRESS. Why do you think these Fema Camps are now coming on line. Why do you think they are letting the Constitution being shredded. They want the NEW WORLD ORDER also. This election right now is a SHAM. Gingrich and Romney are bought and paid for. They are only puppets for the ruling elite, the bankers of the world, and the UN. Come on people, wake up and smell the coffee, and get your heads out of your ass.

    First of all, the senate is not doing it’s job because the majority is Democrats. Second, do you not seem to understand that Republicans were voted for, in effort, to stop what the Democrats want to do. If Republicans went along with everything the Democrats wanted, there would be no need for seperate parties. This goes on in every administation. If the president, the house, and the senate were all from one party, everything would pass through congress. Thank God that has not happened yet. And vote Ron Paul and get the country back on track.

    Flashy, Truer words have never been spoken! For one day we needed to be a true majority rule democracy! Election day in 2000. When over 500,000 more Americans expressed their desire to have Al Gore President than george w. bush, Can you imagine our world today if we had missed the decisions of that totally incompetent daddy’s boy from Crawford Texas. The people who would still be alive and the money that was wasted on his follies being used to advance the well being of our peopl
    Every four they have proclaimed that Democrats are socialist who will ruin our free market society if elected! I point out the names of those Democrats that have been elected sonce 1900 and ask them to check their records and compare them to the records of the past Republican Presidents and furnish me the comparisons. Not a one has furnished me the figures to support their claim. In fact, there is a site, ‘Bulls, bears, donkeys and elephants” that indicates the economy has perfromed quite well under past Democrats!!

  • lucitee

    Incompetence HAS no color, Jack! Get off the “racism” soapbox! All you liberals have taken “Conservatives are racists” as a mantra! ALSO, Not one single appointment made by Bush was involved in radical movements, known to lie, cheat, and cause chaos with their actions! Every appointmented Czar that “0″ has made, they’ve been involved in questionable and anti-American groups! And one thing about Bush that cannot be challenged! His love for America! AND his transparency! This President has “hidden” everything in his past, lied about what IS revealed, and has only contempt for America! Until NOW of course, he is “buttering his bread” by saying we are the greatest country on earth! His bread will be dropped, buttered side down, in November!

  • Stephen

    The Obamir IS the Anti-Prez. He put his hand on the Bible and then proceeded to lie. He’s a disgrace to AMERICA and must go now, even before November. But, of course, that’s probably his intention so he can blame others (Republicans) in Congress for only wanting to do the impeachment business and not the important needs of the American people. I am sure this procedure is upon the strategy board already so handling the impeachment will be a delicate process. It could do more harm than good if done in haste. It must be bipartisan like a Class-Action from the American people against the person who holds the office.

  • R Crain

    In reply to SKIP, I`ll tell you what is not fantasy. Americans are lasy, and pretty lax when it comes to voting, and paying attention too what is going on around them. We have no one to blame but ourselves. Everyone wants someone else to do it for them. Much easier to lay back and collect benefits from the Government, and other State agencies you can fleece. BUT, there is a line you better not cross. We are a forgiving people. We have been taking care of the world since our inception of this Republic.We take a lot of abuse, that is our nature being Americans from a mixed pot generation after generation. BUT, when you start taking our freedoms, passing laws around a do nothing Congress, opening up Fema camps, and basically going back to 1938 Germany, we draw the line there. I expect to see a armed rebellion, unlike anything you could possibly imagine in your wildest dreams. We are no longer the United States of America, thanks to G. Bush. He signed treaties with Mexico, and Canada, and we became the NORTH AMERICAN UNION!!When Civil rebellion starts, it will be UN Troops, with Canadian and Mexican troops patrolling our streets. American military troops will not engage,nor will they lock up American citizens. They will stand down, cause our current military leaders are bought and paid for. They want the NEW WORLD ORDER also, the same as both Democrat and Republican parties. This country has never been invaded as our enemies know for a fact that every American has a gun, and will use it. That knowledge has kept us safe, and now we will have to put it in practice if we are to survive, and keep the Republic the Founding Fathers gave us.A lot of people will die, some horribly. BUT, mark my words, this country, this Republic, these loyal Americans, will never allow this NEW WORLD ORDER to exit here. It will not happen.

  • NC

    Jim, what is the US Constitutional “as we know it”? A visit to any good law library will reveal a large number of volumes of US Supreme Court Reprorts of cases that settled disputes on what the US Constitution “as we know it” really “means”.Some even where “conservaties’ disagreed with other “conservatives’ as to what certain passages meant< Maybe some that have already held what you would like to be Constitutional is in fact unconstitutioal and the other way also. We argue about what it means but the court DECIDES what it means and it is not always what "we" would like it to be!

  • Capitalist at Birth

    I judge people by their actions and the content of their character. Many blacks do not have the content of character that is desirable in my mind.

In a free soceity these things will always persistent and will never come to a end, that is why they keep on bringing these things up to devert our attention to class warfare and other non-sensical issues. We need to STOP funding the Utopian dream and take our country back, before it turns into something else.

    How dare someone accuse Claire of being a liberal!
    But then she uses a well known liberal statement like(paraphrasing)
    “Racism is alive and well”,

    “What you are thunders so loudly,that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Not that I need a quote from a literary giant like Ralph,to say that you seem to exhibit tendencies for which you have just chewed a mans posterior for in a previous post.
    Before you go onabout what a sanctimonious bastard I am,Just take a look around.Do you see what I see?Folks with no real grounds for accusations that they toss about,constantly poking at one another not because of the merit of their argument,but because they lack merit to their argument?
    Then you throw in a blanket statement like theone quoted above,and expect folks to see you as anything but what you appear to be?
    You lack credibility,and yet you attack someone who sees a picture that you project.What mask will you wear tomorrow?
    It is true that someone who makes false assumptions is often wrong about his lack of knowledge,but when you prove them right by statements that you make only sentences later,PERHAPS you have the integrity which you claim to have,but we surely do not clearly see it.

    Okey Flashy, let’s try this one more time. The strategy of “pro-forma” sessions was praticed by Harry Reid throughout the full term of the 110th. Congress. President Bush, as flawed as he was, NEVER insulted and ignored the Constitution. I’m sure he believed that his appointments were as necessary as Obama does his, yet he honored his oath “to protect and defend the Constitution”.
    ” The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie down the second with the chains of the Constitution, so the second will not become the legalized version of the first” Thomas Jefferson

    Having said that, I’m sure that another of Jeffersons observations will apply “It is as useless to argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason as to administer medication to the dead”

  • Rick

    Flashy what do you use for brains? Do you really think that these minor appointments couldn’t wait a week or two especially when those departments were also on holiday breaks? It’s too bad the guy who took the pot shots at the white house missed. at least maybe the will of the people woukld have been served in stead of his royal Hind end Obummer.It’s sad when the only reason he got elected is his race. He takled about his ideasbut had to intent or plan to make it happen. The only thing you did get right is congress hasn’t done their job either.

  • DaveH

    Perhaps if Al Gore had been elected, people would have awakened sooner to the realities of our Leaders trampling the Constitution.
    And perhaps people like NC would not still be calling what we have a “Democracy” when it is a Republic. Our founders, unlike NC, were well-versed in the realities of Democracy (tyranny of the minority by the majority). They purposely set up a Republic in this country in an effort to avoid the rights of the minority being trampled by the wishes of the majority.
    They also knew that the further the Seat of Power was from the electorate, the less Power the electorate would have to Unseat Power when it inevitably got out of control. So they set up a Republic with an awesome array of checks and balances to thwart the Big Government tendencies that are common with Leaders. But, as Thomas Jefferson said “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”, and we haven’t been vigilant.

    Not a “flawed” document in need of ‘rampant revision”.

    His view is one which 99% of Constituional scholars agree with. In fact, throughout history the SCOTUS has stated such as well.

  • cawmun cents

    There it is….the 99% fixation.
    Flashman is under the distinct impression that because some folks shout loud and march in the streets like a parade of fools,that they represent 99% of the populace.
    First off,liberals arent even a majority in this country.
    The chances of seeing then parading about in other countries,BECAUSE they parade about is substantial,but hardly representative of 99% of those nations either.
    There are millions of folks in those places and these,who have better things to do wiith their time,than writing complaints on signs and marching about waving them.
    Yet Flashy assumes that because they complain openly that they represent the majority of people.Luckily,folks here and there have more sense that to march around creating photo ops to the power mongers for identification purposes.
    His assumption that liberalism is a majority”feeling”in the world is a doomed idea.Many folks who are out there day to day,but have no voice,not because they are scared or rounded up by some leftist organization to be scrutinized by the press,are members of the actual majority.
    Then they will claim that if the actual majority isnt willing to parade like fools(something you see the powermongers use their military parades to do to show their might),that they are unworthy of being called the majority.
    So in effect,they are showing you how they see power projected.
    Through a parade.Parody.
    Hope that irony is not lost on those of you out there who see things clearly.Apparently it is to liberals like Flashy.

    Hearing these many comments about how in-effective the “leadership” in Washington, D.C., is might lead one to question why there are no suggestions that each state go its own way. Actually, it does seem that although it’s a fact that people in smaller countries are happier that their counterparts in larger countries, we collectively seem to be stuck on administrative collectiveness.

  • Pat

    All of the members of Congress have proven time and time again that they are not Patriots. They refuse to protect our Constitution. They are not living up top their promise to protect and defend the Constitution so that makes them traitors. I thought traitors were arrested, tried, convicted and shot! Start with Obamanation. Where do the people go when they can’t rely on their elected officials? We are told in the constitution to protect it ourselves.

    Article II, Section 4: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeahment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    The President has trashed the Constitution many times without being held accountable. That is treason absolutely. The Congress has not held the President acountable. That makes them a party to his treason. Therefore they are treasonists also. Let the penalties begin immediately!!!

    Until some democrats in the Senate decide that their allegiance to the constitution or the Senate supersedes their devotion to their party and their slick president it will take an election to remove the gutless wonders.

To say it’s settled is like saying the end of all time has been decided. The usurper has spent untold hundreds of thousands of dollars to hide this document and all other documents which would allow vetting of his candidacy. Any other candidate would have been disqualified; but not Berry…why not?

    What nonsense! A congress that absolutely opposes even appointing a head of the printing office, and imposes hundreds of filibusters and prevents absolutely anything proposed and majority supported is in fact a dictatorship – a dictatorship of one senator who elects the filibuster, etc. That is where the dictatorship exists, not in the executive. The executive is expected to execute, the legislature to legislate. But the legislature has elected to dictate – dictate NO to everything. The absolute worst legislature in modern memory with an 8% approval rating. Get them out of there ASAP and get back to a government that can function. McConnell couldn’t win a race for dogcatcher in my home state, and Cantor and Boehner would be ridden out of town, tarred and feathered – they haven’t approached the truth in decades. I don’t know which is their worst trait – mendacity or stupidity. What is really worst is arrogant ignorance.

  • Bob Marshall

    It is not the Constitution that is the problem. It is the ignorant voters who either didn’t care, didn’t know or thought he would keep his promises made during his campaign.i bet many of our younger high school students were aware of Obama’s ties to Socialist, Communist, terrorist groups like CAIR, the Weatherman and Communist like Bill Ayers and George Soros. ” If we expect to be free and ignorant in a state of civilization, we expect what never was and never will be…if we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed.” Thomas Jefferson.” Voters need to be better informed come this November. Obama’s said he learned more from Alinsky’s revolutionary community organizing methods than he did while at Hartford Law school.Most people know that Saul Alinsky, the Chicago Marxist, was the father of “community organizing”. Obama said his rules were “seared into my brain”-to really work, the general public must be made to feel intimidated, upset, frustrated and hopeless.

  • Deerinwater

    According to the Justice dept;

    “”The convening of periodic pro forma sessions in which no business is to be conducted does not have the legal effect of interrupting an intrasession recess otherwise long enough to qualify as a ‘Recess of the Senate’ under the Recess Appointments Clause,” reads the Jan. 6 memo written by Assistant Attorney General Virginia Seitz.
    “In this context, the president therefore has discretion to conclude that the Senate is unavailable to perform its advise-and-consent function and to exercise his power to make recess appointments,’ it continues.
    The memo, dated two days after President Obama made his controversial appointment of Richard Cordray to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three others to the National Labor Relations Board, summarizes advice given to the White House before the Jan. 4 appointments, an administration official said.
    “The advice was given orally before” Cordray’s appointment, the official said. What was released today “is written advice.”
    White House spokesman Jay Carney added that the Justice Department’s legal opinion “was rendered before the decision was made by the president.”

  • Flashy

    I question if Pres. Obama acted unconstitutionally.

    If the Senate was ‘in session’…what business was it conducting? Was there a quorum present? Were committees holding hearings?

    Just because the Senate says it is in session, that does not make it necessarily so.

    My question to you is…why do you support the actions of the GOP which is placing politics and monied special interests above that of the nation?

  • TML

    “I question if Pres. Obama acted unconstitutionally.

    If the Senate was ‘in session’…what business was it conducting? Was there a quorum present? Were committees holding hearings?

    Just because the Senate says it is in session, that does not make it necessarily so.”

    I guess to settle that argument we would have to agree on what the Constitution defines as ‘being in session’ and what is required. Article 1 Section 5 explains this.
    According to everything that I have seen and heard so far, all requirements were reached by Congress to classify as being in session, in accordance with the Constitution.

    “My question to you is…why do you support the actions of the GOP which is placing politics and monied special interests above that of the nation?”

    I support following the Constitution, not necessarily the GOP. Personally, yes, I think it is rather dubious that Congress did indeed do this intentionally to prevent Obama from making appointments… rather than getting in there, despite the holidays, to take care of business… however, they were indeed following the Constitution in order to do it. This shouldn’t mean the the President can just willy nilly disregard the Constitution when it’s rules aren’t working in his favor.

    I suppose we could disagree with the Constitution, as I don’t think there should be ANY recess appointments allowed. I think ALL appointees should be approved and given consent by Congress and if they are in recess… they should get their highly paid asses out of bed and get to work.

They don’t take it serious so why the uproar about Democrats. Demand accountability from both parties or this will only keep happening. Blaming the Democrats or Republicans is useless unless you fix the glitches(loopholes) they all use for their end run on the Constitution.

  • Impala

    In your case, ignorance surely is bliss. While you so graciously cite numbers of other presidents you miserably FAIL in factual comparison. The little item which stomps your comparisons, is very simply this: compare based on years in office! Obama has been in office “how long” now? you completely disregard to the length of the others you cite? Suggestion: when you make comparisons and spout them as gospel, make comparisons with intelligence. You trapped yourself! Tsk, tsk.

    Please, go back to school, NO! Please don’t as they are institutions of indoctrination, not education and you obviously missed out on reading comprehension. The “OPERATIVE WORDS” here are RECESS APPOINTMENT! Got that now, recess measning that we are NOT in Session!!! Okay are you with me? Congress was ot in recess as one member went to the floor to call a session of congress. It doesn’t matter how many members are present or how much actual business is conducted. As long as one member calls the floor to order, IT IS NOT IN RECESS!!!~ Hence, the appointments are unconstitutional!!! End of story here and the opening salvo of a supreme cout case of the flagrant misuse of power by oblowhole. The Constitution of the United States is the foundation of all of our laws, and he, the so called messiah by the uneducated, and blinded by infatuation persons, will watch him go down as a total failure that he realy is.

  • Dave

    Well Larry,

    If Obama has it so easy in the Senate… Why don’t you look at the number of times the filibuster has been used during that period and then compare against 8 years of Bush Inc and Ronald “the Saint” Reagan and get back to me.

    The GOP have one mission only… Its not Jobs, or upholding the US Constitution which they have shown contempt for time and time again… Its to make sure Obama and the country fails so they can gain power. The problem now is there is the internet and 24 hour news so the people know what the GOP are doing and if you judge by the 2011 election, people are not happy with what the GOP are doing. The GOP are going to lose in 2012.

  • Flashy

    The ‘vote’ which you are referring to was not on Cordray, it was an attempt to move the matter for a vote on his qualitifications and move the process forward. it was not rejected, it passed…but not with the 60 votes necessary to stop the GOP filibuster.

    Not one GOP leader has stated Cordray is unqualified or has objections to his ability to hold the post. Not one. Yet they won’t allow it for an up or down vote. You support that putting off the nation for politics and special monied interests?

    As to the other appointments, ummmmmm…they were all before the Senate for months without action. Note the appointments the President did make were those which the person was not viewed by the GOP to be unqualified. There has been nothing from the GOP complaining about the appointees…

  • DaveH

    Did you protest the Democrats’ use of filibusters, HFlashman, when they used them regularly to stop Conservative Judicial appointees?

  • DaveH

    Flashman says “Not one GOP leader has stated Cordray is unqualified or has objections to his ability to hold the post. Not one. Yet they won’t allow it for an up or down vote. You support that putting off the nation for politics and special monied interests?”.
    Just how dumb do you think the readers are, Flashman?
    If they voted to reject the Cloture motion, obviously they either Objected “to his ability to hold the post”, or they wanted at the very least to know more about the man before they voted on his appointment. You know, Flashman, Scrutiny, Shining the light on Government officials — something you Liberals abhor. Liberals much prefer to operate in darkness.

  • Flashy

    Two things Dave.

    1. Note the appointees are those which no one…not one GOP leader, has stated was unfit for the position. This is unlike judicial appointments which are cloaked in ideological controversy.

    2. The vote was whether to move the process to an up or down vote on Cordray. The GOP stopped it before it was able to vote on whether he was qualified for the position. Different subject of voting matter.

    The difference is…even the Senators agree..the appointees are fully qualified and non-controversial. So..is the Senate “in session” ? That’s the question.

    People,
    Let’s review a little:

    There is an obvious agenda and we are living through the fundamental transformation of our country. Undeniably, there is no accident or coincidence. These are verifiable facts and incidents. Do you think it matters now?

    WHEN Obama wrote a book and said he was mentored as a youth by Frank (Frank Marshall Davis) an avowed Communist, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN it was discovered that his grandparents were strong socialists who sent Obama’s mother to a socialist school where she was introduced to Frank Marshall Davis. He was later introduced to young Barrack Hussein Obama. People said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN people found out that Barrack Hussein Obama was enrolled as a Muslim child in school and his father and stepfather were both Muslims, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he wrote in another book he authored “I will stand with them (Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he admittedly, in his book, said he chose Marxist friends and professors in college– people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he traveled to Pakistan after college on an unknown national passport, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he sought the endorsement of the Marxist Party in 1996 as he ran for the Illinois Senate, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he sat in a Chicago Church for twenty years and listened to a preacher spew hatred for America and preach black liberation theology, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN an independent Washington organization, that tracks Senate voting records, gave him the distinctive title as the “most liberal senator,” people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN the Palestinians in Gaza set up a fund raising telethon to raise money for his election campaign, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN his voting record supported gun control, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he refused to disclose who donated money to his election campaign, as other candidates had done, people said it didn’t matter.

    WHEN he received endorsements from people like Louis Farrakhan and Mum-mar Kadaffi and Hugo Chavez, people said it didn’t matter.

    Here is my question, WHY do we always look to the government to handle our problems???That is exactly whaty those in power want us to do!
    In the first place the process of removing Obama from office thru a legislative action, would surely take longer than he has left to serve! In the second place, even if we were successful at having the House Impeach him, we wouldn’t accomplish any more than we did whan the House Impeached Clinton!
    The path out of this mess is November 6! The only Presidency I’de recommend Ron Paul for would be the President of China. Then America would trully be safe!

    “Idiot it doesn’t matter which president did this it is not right.”

    I don’t believe “Idiot” is necessary but I understand your “simplified” understanding of “Right and Wrong” and of course you are correct. Two “wrongs” has never made a “right” but in this case you are opposing the justice department and their legal council with you “claim” that a wrong has even been committed.

    Which begs the question, what are your credentials so we might better weight your charges of impropriety in these recent appointment?

    What are your “objections” founded on and what are your motives for doing so?

Evidently the 69 million had seen something in the other party that they chose NOT to support in 2008! Wonder what that was???? What had lowered the approval of that administration to well below 30%??
    When wmd etc.were not found 59 million Americans last election said it didn’t matter BUT 69 million Americans said it did matter,
    When the bush fiscal policy tanked and millions lost their jobs 59 million said it didn’t matter BUT 69 million said it did matter.

  • eddie47d

    Actually Obama’s approval rating is quite high considering the nature of the economy. Since that is improving slow and steady it makes for a harder argument from the right. Most people will take slow and steady over wild and unpredictable any day. I know the wealthy make money or at least have it whether the economy is up or down so those crazy swings don’t effect them as much. That does leave the Middle Class and poor sinking with unknown job security and a harder prospect for them. The voters are frustrated with Obama but are very aware that Congress has stymied him at every turn. They are also very aware of the Republicans part in this economical downfall.It’s naive to think the voters will sweep the Republicans back in when they created much of the mess.

    Again we have Eddie pointing fingers in one direction when he should be pointing that same finger in all directions. Yes eddie I do believe that republicans share the blame but I also believe the democrats share the blame evan more then the republicans. It was CRA enacted by Carter and clintons monkeying with CRA in the mid ninety’s that lead Fannie and Freddie to lower lending regulations which created the perfect storm among banks, mortgage brokerages and the government. Then of course Eddie doesn’t want to mention the fact that Barrny Frank (House) and Chris Dodd (Senate) whom held powerful committee positions stalled or flatly refused to hear or bring change to our financial institusions.

  • lucitee

    C.A., this post should be sent to EVERY Government Official all the way from our local, regional and State Politicians to the White House! I have never read or watched a more precise, detailed, and complete summary of this fraud! I have read his book “Dreams from My Father., and I came away with the conviction that this man is an unfeeling racist, biased, deceiving and very angry person! ALSO
    some of the dialog, perceptions, ideals, summaries, did NOT sound like O’Bamas words! He has “used” people all his life to either gain monetary support or gain entrance to HIS dream, NOT his fathers! He did not mention even ONE “dream” of his father! So the title is misleading! To ME, the most “revealing” periods of his life was brushed over, seemingly unimportant!. NO positive, emotional or detailed account of his court-ship, marriage, and the miracle of his daughters birth! Those two events normally in a Bio book, would show the “beautiful wonder” of it and would expound on them! Not one response that would show emotion in his book! Considering his “writer”, I imagine he did not WANT to show a “softer side” of O’Bama! Somehow love, devotion and compassion would have made O’Bama seem “weak”! And the “writer”, by leaving them OUT, just made them more obvious and prominant!

  • BigBadJohn

    So true Deerinwater,I went to a Baptist Church in 1975 and they asked me if I was baptised I said yes.They said being Blessed and “sprinkled” doesn’t count. I would be welcomed in their church but until I was Born Again I would not be a true Christian. A year later I was Born Again and I accept that but was it really needed. Some religions are overly pious or prejudice in how they treat others that don’t fit their mold.

    we are no longer #2 & #3 least taxed. We pay our way we pay down debt

    We save 200B from tax preparations. GE lays off 900 in tax department
    Warren Buffet pays his Fair Share. Not 6.5M on income 63M or 11%.
    Top 50% who get 87% individual and pay 12.5 Tax Rate and 10% total
    Corp pay on 3000B profit not 2000B.
    I need an explanation how Buffet can pay 6.5 on 63 that is 56.5 in deductions??? He listed 17% tax rate but that is after deductions
    not on total income.

    We have a total national income 12000B (rounded).
    Corp & Individual pay 2300B. They have $2000B+ in Deductions.

    It takes 32% of Total Income (12000) to over 3800 Budget.
    We get Spun with Corp 35% tax Rate. Pay 22% tax rate but of total profits 15.5% in 2000 and 12.5 in 2008.

    Individual Rich do pay most income taxes. BUT top 60% get 70% and paid
    14.68 after deductions or about 10% of Total Income

    That folks is why we rank # 2-#3-#4 in OECD

    This was achieved via conservative tax policies since 1980 starting with Reagan 60% Tax Cut for Top Income then Bush huge tax cuts with 10% getting 60% of benefits.

    Impeach Obama NOW!is the correct response, but one very unlikely to issue from the gutless majority of members of Congress, who at most only choose to make a little noise in the media.

Otherwise, BHO will continue to grow in boldness and flagrancy of actions in violation of the Constitution.

    How is Mr. Obama protecting the Constitution of the USA?

Now! this action shows Mr. Obama has no knowledge or unable to protect the USA Constitution. What do you believe is the truth? I am out of work and I place the problem on Mr. Obama. He made a lot of promises that help make the problems worst. He and his party blocked all bills that pass the House, and say “Congress is a do nothing Congress!” Will I think Mr. Obama is a do nothing person, and this was his plan for staying in office.

    OH, REALLY?
    With no witnesses to speak of, we have NO PROOF that he did it correctly the second time! Also, with no witnesses to attest to it, he could have spoken his oath of office with his hand on the cooran; which, if you recall, says that ‘it’s okay to lie if you’re doing so to infidels’!
    FINALLY, since he is constitutionally ineligible to hold the office (do I NEED to explain that?), and with proof starting to come out as well, any oath taken is null and void!
    THEREFORE, he is NOT bound by honor, ethics or anything else to preserve, protect OR defend the constitution…

  • Bob from SoCal

    The policies that Obama is implementing, many are unconstitutional. So why doesn’t the congress or the judiciary stand up and do something about this. All we hear are a few whimpers from the house and senate. But no action whatsoever. The only possible answer is that they are all complicit. They must agree with what is being done, or this nonsense would stop.
    Our whole government has been hijacked by the corporate elitists that are stealing our country from us to give us their Utopian New World Order. If the people of this country do not stand up soon there will not be a country left to save. NDAA, FEMA camps now opening in a town near you.

    YOU CANNOT IMPEACH OBOMMA PERIOD.He has to be duly elected, and he was not. He is not even a citizen of this country. He can be charged as a USURPRER. All the members do not need too be voted out and sent home. That would be a reward to them to spend their millions in ill gotten gain.What should happen is: All members jailed for treason! Obummer and Queen Bee taken into custody by US Marshalls. All held over for trial on charges of treason. Emergency elections for all new members, those only having a strict Constitutionalist view. All laws and regulations repealed. All trials and elections on World wide TV and the web. We want the world to see what happens to tyrants and traitors. After a fair trial, all wealth gotten off the backs of tax payers, insider trading, and all other illegal activities returned to the people. This would no doubt help the economy a great deal. Then after a fair trial, publicly executed on TV for all the world too see. This is what happens to tyrants and traitors who do this too Americans. Everyone knows the Democrats and the Republicans are both wanting the same goal. Too take us all kicking and screaming into the NEW WORLD ORDER!! We as Americans can never allow this to happen.Make all new members retire under Social Security, and Medicare,. This would get fixed pronto, everyone wins, and we get our REPUBLIC BACK.

    I disagree that “they are all dictators” (Congress). They have been rendered useless and irrelevant by Obama, the DOJ, the NLRB, and Harry Reid.

  • lucitee

    Buddy, the Constitution was written with the idea that States should be in control of service, support, and the needs of its own Citizens! The Govenment was formed to “Govern”! That is what “Government” means! It has taken the authority away from the States, a law at a time, until WE are completely dependant on the Government to supply our needs, which are “met’ on THEIR terms and conditions! Instead, they are buying, usurping, mishandling and fraudulently supplying their OWN needs! Power, greed, control and money! They have mismanaged the funds that’s been wrested from us, wildly, wrecklessly, and foolishly spent it on things that will improve THEIR status, NOT OURS!

  • Kimberly

    I agree with R Crain…Obama and wife (who is wasting & spending OUR tax money on her own vacations, clothes & parties)need to be put in jail for treason!!!! They have gotten away with soooo much wrong & I am sick of it and can’t believe this country is letting them get away with it!! They are PURPOSELY making fools out of the U.S. people. It is WRONG to let Obama get away with so much!

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Well, by the same token, there are many good (honest conservative) members of Congress, such as Michelle Bachmann, Steve King, etc. Not all members are evil like Nazi Pelosi. To the contrary, BHO and his whole administration is corrupt. Therefore I fail to see why all of Congress would have a lower approval rating than BHO.

  • Ted Crawford

    In other words You Can’t! Thank You!

  • R Crain

    My dear Sir: It does not one iota of good to write anyone in government, as government is the problem.Both Parties have one goal, and that is too take us all kicking and screaming into the NEW WORLD ORDER!! All members of Government need to be jailed for treason. Please read my earlier comment on this.

  • DaveH

    Yes, and we should write our State Representatives also. They will whine that it is out of their control, but we must remind them that the Constitution gave the States sovereignty except for certain Limited Federal Powers and that it is high time they start demanding that the Federal Government obey that Contract.

    I have sent many letters to my Congressmen requesting such a move. We are ALL being ignored. They think there is nothing we will do to them for carring on as usual. Obama should be arrested for a lot of things. However, lets start with Contempt of Congress. When a President lies to Congress and to the people, that President should be brought up on charges of contempt if nothing else. This President lid about his qualifications to be President. That makes him perpetrating fraud on the American people. If he is not fraudulent, then he owed the country for the scholarship he received as a foreign student. That means he lied then to get the scholarship. Either way he is a liar and a criminal. He owes our country a lot of money for all the money expended on his behalf while fraudently serving in the office of President. ARREST HIM!!!!!

    I am as frustrated and PO’d as you, but we must remember it takes both chambers to remove Soetoro. The Communist Party controls the Senate, so no matter what the House does nothing will happen in the Senate.

    Also, bear in mind that only two presidents have been impeached: Johnson in 1868 and dick-for-brains in 1998 (both of them Demorcrats), and neither of them were convicted in a Republican Senate.

    However, I will give you that today’s circumstances are quite different, but I still stand that the Dem Senate would do NOTHING.

  • skip

    Better yet, vote out of office all of the No sayers in congress – they are worse than useless – most of uneducated, stupid, arrogant, unaware, and on the take. I’d like to see how much Koch Brothers money is behind their getting elected. THey don’t realize that they have been co-opted by the extremely wealthy greedocrats and kleptocrats by being told a bunch of nonsense. Where the country really got screwed is at the Supreme Court Ctizens United decision where we now know and can see day by day what Corporate Money and Corporate Greed can buy – tens of millions of Corporation dollars spent to win or try to win Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, etc. These are Corporations spending millions at a time, not individual citizens giving $50 at a time. Hold on to your pants, all you 99%ers – your keester is going down the plug hole faster than you can imagine and hyou handguns won’t help you.

    Skip says “Better yet, vote out of office all of the No sayers in congress – they are worse than useless – most of uneducated, stupid, arrogant, unaware, and on the take”.
    It would behoove you, Skip, to read “The Big Ripoff: How Big Business and Big Government Steal Your Money”. Because the Yes votes are the ones you need to worry about. Those sweet sounding laws, which in reality protect certain Crony Capitalists from competition, are what you need to worry about. They play you Ignorant Liberals like a fiddle.
    And then Skip goes on to describe how the corporations are buying elections. But all the advertising in the world, Skip, can’t make you vote one way or the other. It sounds to me like your “uneducated”, “stupid”, “unaware” descriptions are better suited towards those voters who you think can’t think for themselves.

Equal opportunity exists every where. The outcome of those opportunities will never be equal and that is good; that fact breeds a good work character in individuals; something this country’s citizens need to realize.

    The fact that some work harder and get more wealth is certainly no reason to redistribute based on your subjective rule of ‘being fair’.

    If we continue to honor and cherish slackers and sloth, we might as well pack it in and hoist a communist flag. (although if you try that in my neighborhood you will soon learn what a patriot looks like and sounds like.)

    Oh I don’t know, maybe Bush with the approval of a republican congress???

    According to an article in The Boston Globe, Bush has claimed the right to ignore more than 750 laws enacted since he became president. He has unilaterally overruled Congress on a broad range of matters, refusing, for example, to accept a requirement for more diversity in awarding government science scholarships. He has overruled numerous provisions of congressional appropriations bills that he felt impinged on his executive power. He has also overruled Congress’s requirement that he report back to it on how he has implemented a number of laws. Moreover, he has refused to enforce laws protecting whistle-blowers and providing safeguards against political interference in federally funded research. Bush has also used signing statements to place severe limits on the inspectors general created by Congress to oversee federal activities, including two officials who were supposed to inspect and report to Congress on the US occupation of Iraq.

    Which only goes to show how much Bush was truly in league with the same people who direct the “0″Bomb.

He should have never been voted in as a senator of Illinois the crupt state of Illinois Demorats made sure he would win the election by him having no one to run against. Hell AlCapone was sissy compared to these lawless pukes. Can’t wait to see what you have to say to this Eddie the poster child of ingnorance!

    Dear Fellow Conservative:

    Chicago, 1996. State Senator Alice Palmer (D-Ill.) never saw it coming…

    The popular activist, running for re-election (she’d won the previous election with a landslide 82% of the vote), was a sure thing keep her seat.

    But on the day after New Year’s 1996, a small army of lawyers filed into the hearing room of the Chicago Board of Elections. In a blink, Alice Palmer’s name had been struck from the ballot.

    So, too, were the names of three other candidates on the Democratic primary ballot — all eliminated on the basis of minor “violations,” most of them as picayune as not crossing a “t” or failure to dot an “i.”

    When the dust settled only a single name remained on the ballot: Barack Hussein Obama. He “swept” to victory… unopposed.

    The Cordray appointment is just a side-show. The real issue is the agency that Cordray has been appointed to — The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
    From the article:
    “the CFPA will pile on burdensome new rules, restrict innovation, hurt small businesses, increase the cost of doing business, spawn a massive bureaucracy, and create severe conflicts between state and federal law. Frank’s proposed version would even allow the new agency to write and enforce laws beyond the scope of existing legislative authority. There are good ways of reforming consumer protection. The Consumer Financial Protection Agency is not one of them”.

    Just what we need — more meddling by the same Government that brought us the collapse of our economy. It’s quite a scam the Liberals play. First they create conditions for malinvestment and then when the inevitable collapse comes they offer themselves as the solution to the problem which they created. It’s time for all good people to wake up and realize that the Force of Big Government is a very poor substitute for Free Markets where the consumers decide which businesses should succeed and which should fail, rather than letting a bunch of self-interested Politicians (at great cost to the taxpayers) make that decision for us.

    Dave, Fact: the S&P is owned and operated by one on the US most conservative families, The MCGraw Hills. The reason the credit rating was downgraded was because Boehner only got 98% from Obama not 100%. Those last 2% would have made McGraw Hills corporations billions of dollars of profit. In retaliation for losing the profit they reduced the US credit rating. the report really is a cop out nothing else.

    Does Eddie47d have any proof that Bush/Cheny falsified the reports. No. Did he notice that the House and Senate were controlled by the Democrats so they could have filed articles in the House and Impeached in the Senate. Did they? No. Did a lot of protesters whine that “Bush lied, people died”?
    Yes.

    One thing about Obama. He didn’t even bother to ask or create a lie. He just bombed Libya. Nice Guy. Change we CAN believe in. “Yes, we can”.

    (Note that though the House and Senate were both in Democrat control and they did have enough people in the House to vote for impeachment, they did not have 2/3 democrats in the Senate necessary for them to railroad a guilty verdict on party line grounds.)

    He sent Colin Powell to the UN Ms Vickie to do his bidding with fake vials of anthrax. He took the word of Chalabi( early Iraq presidential contender) who also gave Bush faked information. The truth of the matter is that Bush did lie and people died.So what is your point on that. He claimed that Saddam had mobile nuke missile sites on train cars. That has been debunked and Saddam never even had the capabilities. Why are you being so disingenuous on this issue when the facts have been out there for years. You seem to be looking for excuses for keeping false flag wars going instead of correcting the way we do business.

  • Tom W.

    They should’ve been impeached for enacting the Patriot Act alone! If the New World Order was to come to fruition, I bet one of the first acts of the new government would be to arrest GWB, The Dick, and Rummy on war crime charges! The World Court would like to do it now. Has anybody noticed that Potus ran on the promise that he was going to do away with these ‘anti-American’ policies, and has instead expanded on them! We’ve been steadily moving towards the NWO since JFK was assassinated. The TSA is now getting ready to expand to the train and bus stations, has experimented in TN with their VIPER road blocks, and is just an insult to travelers period! Despite his left wing peace-nic rhetoric, he has proven that he’ll fly a drone up your ass in a heartbeat. GET READY AMERICA!!!

    Evidence dear. Evidence. False assertions are easy to make. In fact your entire arguement claiming Bush lied is based on YOUR assertion that someone made false statements to Bush and he acted on this trusting the source. Needless to say we do not trust YOU as a source.

    eddie47d: “The truth of the matter is that Bush did lie and people died.So what is your point on that.”

    My point would be that you do not know what a lie is.
    My proof is in the actual definition of “lie”.
    “1: to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive ”
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lie?show=2&t=1326526037

    Absent any proof by you or anyone else that Bush made an untrue statement with INTENT TO DECEIVE I find your assertion to be without merit.

    eddie47d: “He claimed that Saddam had mobile nuke missile sites on train cars. That has been debunked and Saddam never even had the capabilities. Why are you being so disingenuous on this issue when the facts have been out there for years.”

    Indeed the facts have been out there for years. Bush did NOT lie. He was given false information from sources he trusted. Even a lot of Democrats (including Obama) accepted the sources.

    eddie47d: “You seem to be looking for excuses for keeping false flag wars going instead of correcting the way we do business.”

    Sorry. Assumption based on facts not in evidence. I clearly have been pointing out the error of the ways of liberals. I have also pointed out the error of making war on other countries including wars started by Obama and wars started by Bush. Which I note Obama is still prosecuting.

    Interesting mis-use of the term “slander”. Let us use eddie47d’s “simple lookup” and see what we find.

    1 : the utterance of false charges or misrepresentations which defame and damage another’s reputation
    2 : a false and defamatory oral statement about a person.
    - merriam-webster dictionary.

    So the charges must be false AND they must damage the reputation. Even had I falsely charged eddie with something his reputation here is in no danger. :)

    MOST people including the LAW view slander as an oral expression that is actually heard. Obviously I can not be guity of slander since we have never spoken nor have I spoken of him to anyone.

    The key different is that liberals take the money at gunpoint (using the government since they wouldn’t want to do it themselves and soil their self image.) while Wall Street has to persuade people to provide the money.

  • eddie47d

    We’ve been through that before Dave and Vickie. They don’t have to persuade with some companies for it is automatic. Such as with Mortgage companies which are on the stock market. You buy a house you end up right into their arms. Now don’t tell me I don’t have to buy a house because that won’t wash. Actually it’s hard to buy any product that isn’t attached to Wall Street and some you can’t do without.

  • cawmun cents

    I disagree with your assumption that it has anything to do with image Vicki,its more of a not having the wherewithal to take it by force,so they have to be manipulative in regulations to force your money out of your posession.
    Always remember,when aiming at a liberal,go for the genitalia,it removes their will to live out their lives as deviously as they want to.

    Why not? Do you HAVE to buy a house? Why? I know LOTS of people that don’t have to buy a house so why are you so special?

    Eddie47d: “Actually it’s hard to buy any product that isn’t attached to Wall Street and some you can’t do without.”

    Name any 1 product that you HAVE to have and is only available from a company that is somehow attached to Wall Street. Just 1. We’re waiting.

    Umm.. Why? No one needs to buy a house thru a Mortgage company. Unless the house they want happens to be owned or offered by a Mortgage company. Go buy one of the millions of houses offered for sale by private individuals.

    Or buy one of the foreclosures.

    Vicki,
    One of my friends bought his house for 14,000 dollars about twenty-five years ago and it was marked condemned. He rebuild the place, bit by bit till it was legal to live in, then went on from there. It is now worth about 200,000!! he never HAD a mortgage!!!

    The rule of law can only work in a society where justice is meted out with equity. Just when did Lady Justice trade in her blindfold for a pair of Transition sunglasses whose darkness or clarity depend on the size of ones’ bank account? When it comes to lawyers, I sometimes tend to agree with William Shakespere. I believe that our once great nation is getting dangerously close to the tipping point. How many more times will the will of the American people be shot down by some ideological judge, who are supposedly sworn to uphold the Constitution, before We the People say enough is enough? We’ll probably be surprised by how small of a spark it will take to set the forest ablaze. Been groped at the airport lately? A little freedom here, a little freedom there, all in the name of security. When are we going to wake up America? If we wait till NATO solders are banging on the door demanding to do a weapons search, it will be too late. Hav’nt you seen what our own National Guard did to that poor elderly woman in New Orleans, who didn’t want to surrender her firearms during Katrina? They brutally threw her to the ground (She was 82, I believe.) in her own home, and forcefully took them. Then two days later she was robbed! You mean to tell me that she, a law abiding citizen, didn’t have the constitutional right to defend her own?!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-taU9d26wT4
    Now I don’t want anyone to get me wrong. If you think I’m blaming the current administration for bringing all this on, I most certainly am not. Although I will say that they’ve added a whole new gear to warp drive! I personally have high hopes for Barack, I pray for him everyday. He’s been critizied for seeming emotionless at times by some, but that’s not the man I saw at the memorial for the West Virginia coal miners, the Dorothy Height funneral http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=ytorUeuZj9o , or more recently eulogizing Christina Taylor Greene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byeLPqiHhcA&feature=related , the nine year old victim of Jared Loughners’ maniacal rage, at the memorial for the victims of the Tuson tragedy. I believe with all my heart that he’ll get past his ego and come to see the light and what made us the greatest country that has ever been on the face of this earth. We would never have got to this point without many years of collaberation between the news media and both sides of the aisle in D.C.. Go online and look up what David Rockefeller told the media moguls at a Council of Forgien Relations meeting way back in the 1991. http://www.rense.com/general17/quote.htm Remember Ruby Ridge, Waco? Was not the previous administration responsible for the enactment of the Patriot Act? And were they not building the Trans-Texas Corridor right under our very noses? http://www.youtube.com/watch ?v=hvCia2CvFFc&feature=related And I’ll bet some, or should I say most of you, don’t even have the foggiest clue what the hell I’m talking about!

  • Brad

    Hey Flash in the pan, here are some of the reasons why Richard Cordrays nomination were held up, this from the New York Times “Until three changes are made, he said, “We won’t support a nominee for this bureau — regardless of who the president is.”

    One of those changes would put a board in charge of overseeing the bureau instead of the director, abolishing the post. Others would subject the agency to the Congressional appropriations process, giving lawmakers more sway over its policies, and would give other financial regulatory agencies a check on its rules.

    Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, a Democrat, said that the opponents’ “first loyalty is to Wall Street banks.”

    The agency can accomplish part of its mission, the protection of consumers from unscrupulous lending practices, without having a director in place. But some of its new powers are vested by law in the director, so it could not expand into realms like the regulation of payday lenders and other nonbank financial businesses”.

  • Flashy

    Nothing against the appointee..but they want to now change the law which has alreaqdy been passed. Note the “demands’ are those they know won’t get through the Congress…placing politics and monied special interests above that of nation.

    eddie47d,
    First of all, if you are going to use a persons name other than your own in a post to make a point, you must at least know that persons name in accuracy. If that person has held a public office, said person is to be addressed in a certain way, and until you learn the proper way to address people, you hold no standing in what you post. Now to the block/subject of my post of an earlier post of yours, as there was no chance to reply to it. First of all The name is Jesse Ventura, not Venture, second of all, he should be recognized as Governor Ventura as is his title as being a past governor, and third, he was a United States Navy Seal as am I, and he has more patriotism and credibility in his little finger than you do in your whole life. Get smart before you are looking stupid please.

    Reagan had a democrat controlled house and senate to contend with, that’s probably why he had to make so many recess appointments. Ohmama had a dem contolled house and senate for his first two year’s, so why did he have to make 22 recess appointments during that time period?

    Do not impeach. Nullify. He has proven by his own birth certificate that he is not a natural born citizen.

    When his presidency is nulified all of the laws he signed are null and void. Much cleaner then impeaching him and still having to take all those laws to the Supreme Court to get them struck down. Or getting the House and Senate to repeal them.

    The 1965 Immigration Law did not start immigration, it merely opened up immigration to the rest of the so-called Third World. Up to that point, immigration into the U.S. was heavily favored to allow folks of European descent to enter (Irish, Italians, Russians, Jews, etc.)

    After 1965, the gates were opened to allow folks from everywhere. That’s why we now see more Ethiopians, Somalis, Nigerians, Ugandans, Pakistanis, Saudis, Libyans, Vietnamese, etc. in our country.

    What do you know, NC actually stated a fact — “The end to racism is certainly an honorable goal”.
    That it is, NC, but Government rather than being the Solution has historically been the Problem. When they promote one group over another it creates resentment and has the opposite effect of that intended. If we had a Free Society, people would over time get over their prejudices. But how can they do that when one group or another is favored by Government legislation?
    http://www.wendymcelroy.com/articles/spin0799.html

    As an example, think about the Equal Opportunity Laws. By giving protection to a certain Class of people, it is inevitable that those in the Class will slack off and take advantage of their protected status. That creates resentment among their Unprotected co-workers who then become MORE prejudiced NOT less. Also the companies, fearing lawsuits, tend to do everything they can to avoid hiring those potential employees who might be a source of costly litigation.
    If, however, we had Free Markets with no Government intrusion except to enforce against Fraud, the prejudiced companies who hired weaker workers just because they belonged to a favored sex or race would fall by the wayside in the Marketplace to those companies who smartly hired the BEST workers regardless of their skin color or sex. The only way the Prejudiced Companies can survive is by dint of Protection from their bought-and-paid-for Politicians.
    Big Government is the Problem, NOT the Solution.

  • Joe H

    DaveH,
    To further back up your statement, I offer this. I used to work with a guy that was truely racist, hated Blacks. Guess what started this? during the affirmative action heydays, he was passed over for a promotion and it was given to a Black man just because of his color. the guy passed over had a family to support while the man that got it was single. Their qualifications were equal except for the fact that the guy passed over had worked for the company three years longer. Had the guys qualifications been better than his, or he had worked there longer, the guy wouldn’t have been HALF as upset. The fact that the affirmative action GAVE the guy thye job, made a racist of the guy.

  • Mike in MI

    Lucitee – So correct.
    And why wouldn’t he. It’s in the Koran. A Muslim can say anything, do anything , form and sign any contract or agreement with a non-Muslim. Then, anytime he sees it in the interest of allah, annul it completely and walk away from his contract. The Bible to someone like him is an obscene document which should be cut in pieces and burned…as he will do with those who believe the Bible – when an opportune moment arrives. I expect the day to come when there will be a re-enactment of the events in the Book of Esther.

I have edited many manuscripts on terrorism written by reputable authors and the muslims harbor evil thoughts against America. They want to destroy America and all Americans. Sure, plenty of them live here in the U.S. and this bothers me. When a muslim “breaks” away from the muslim religion, the others “go after” them and kill them. How and why is it that the muslims living here in the U.S. are not attacked and killed by their own people? Something is amiss and I simply do not trust the situation. And don’t try to tell me they wanted to “escape” from their country and come to America to live a better life. There is a method to their madness.

I want Adumber out, but i have trouble believing you have anything that will stand up in court!!! If you did, there would be any number of pols that would pay BIG, BIG dollars to get ahold of it. Progs to hide it, and repubs to expose it!!!

    it is aimed at anyone who perpetuates the use of the”racial bias excuse”,mainly because color does not equal content of character.
    But using that form of baiting as a basis for argument shows little character.
    I do not debate that racism exists.Rather that it is a form of using an excuse to maintain a projected shortcoming.
    That being the continued viability of the use of racism as a crutch.
    There are only two colors,@$$hole and cool.No amount or deficiency of melanin in the pigment of the skin can change who you are.
    Some folks are comfortable in their skin.
    They dont need others telling them what the content of their character is based on the color of it.
    Moreover they could care less what is thought by those that exhibit the @$$hole quantity and tendency,when it comes to judging them.
    Those people are a credit to their races.
    Many equate color with social engineering.
    Big mistake.
    Some folks never gave up the tendencies toward tribal living.
    Gangs,unwanted pregnancies,fatherless children,living as enemies with your neighbors,hostility,poverty,hopelessness are all conditions by which peoples all over the world lived with for millenia.
    Some of them never leave the tribal mentality at the door when they enter this nation.They may not have actual tribes,but if they have that mentality,then gangs are formed.
    The only way to get ahead is to force others to give you what you think you deserve.The question is…..what do you base your deserving on?Is it political correctness?Is it dependency on outside help?
    Is it the fact that you have had it hard your whole life and now you want it to go smoothly for you?Are you willing to take that from someone else to have it for yourself?If you are,then what makes you see that as right?Have you ever been to the places that still entertain tribal warfare?Have you ever seen how they live?
    It isnt pretty.
    Africa is all messed up because they havent gotten rid of tribal mentality yet.
    Many of the Central and South American countries are very much the same.
    Then you have the Muslims.
    When you desire to keep the part of your culture that holds you in poor conditions,it is not a question of social engineering.
    It is the cultural conditions which must change,not who controls the money.Otherwise all you will do is use that money and power to perpetuate your tribal mentality.
    Robbing Pedro to pay Pablo,will only work for so long,until Pedro finds somebody to fund his tribal warfare.
    Then you will have made the United States,resemble Mexico,in more ways then just figuratively.
    No Bueno.

    Impeachment will not happen by any Government official but we can impeach them so to speak by our votes at election time. Forget violence as that is what they want to declare martial law against us all. The only way to clean the scum out of the toilet bowl is to flush it by voting out all incumbents.This is our only answer that I can see working. Flush them all down the drain they are trying to flush us down. Our vote is our most powerfull tool to get real reformation of this country to where it was before the crooks took over.
