Well, in fact, our "fascist dictator" wrote an executive order to close Gitmo within a year. We see how powerful those scary executive orders can be now, don't we?


Woo hoo 6 years after the fact and 4 years after his party held all 3 branches ! ! ! !

No wait after he and his party held all 3 branches of government and it didn't rate anything.

Yeah Yeah those 'obstructionists'.

Have at least one original thought?

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses......



"We the people" are guilty of letting it happen, eh?

The idea that George W. is an intelligent, thoughtful person makes him a worse President,
not a better one.

And comparing one idiot to other idiots doesn't prove anything at all except that money buys
success, not knowledge or experience.

Least Bush knows how many states the US has, and knows how to say corpsman, and who didn't need to read from a telepromter 24/7

Obama makes Bush look like a genius.

You mean the genius that thinks Africa is a nation?
Let's review some examples of the genius that is the man named of shrubbery.


"We spent a lot of time talking about Africa, as we should. Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease."



"You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test."



"Tribal sovereignty means that; it's sovereign. I mean, you're a -- you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity. And therefore the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities."



"I couldn't imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Hanukkah."



"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."



"I'm the commander -- see, I don't need to explain -- I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being president."



"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."



"Do you have blacks, too?"



"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."



"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."



"They misunderestimated me."



"You work three jobs? ... Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that."



"This is an impressive crowd -- the haves and the have mores. Some people call you the elite -- I call you my base."



"Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"



"Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."



"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."



"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."

^^
vv

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."



"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office."


the list goes on, but I think you get the point. I'll sign off with this gem.


"I wish you'd have given me this written question ahead of time so I could plan for it...I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with answer, but it hadn't yet...I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I'm confident I have. I just haven't -- you just put me under the spot here, and maybe I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one."

SammyBo476 made a claim and I challenged it.
You interjected with your own 2¢ and I countered.

You proceded further and I sealed the deal.

I've said what I wanted to say in regards to Obama's "Dictatorship",
and the OP's 20 month old video hold's no water. This thread was
disproven on page 1, if you want to be honest.

You know what, you're right! Why am I still here?

Ok I am back inside, and I did a bit of reading before heading back to this thread. There are just too many EO's to make my own decent list. So for this post I will concentrate on just one thing, National Emergency Powers.

Now you just can't blame Obama alone for this one, but we have been in a continued state of national emergency throughout his entire presidency. This allows a president greater powers to act on his own.

PDF- CRC For Congress National Emergency Powers

National Emergency Powers

The President of the United States has available certain powers that may be exercised in the event that the nation is threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances (other than natural disasters, war, or near-war situations). Such powers may be stated explicitly or implied by the Constitution, assumed by the Chief Executive to be permissible constitutionally, or inferred from or specified by statute.Through legislation, congress has made a great many delegations of authority in this regard over the past 200 years.


Emergency Powers

A state of emergency is a governmental declaration that may suspend some normal functions of the executive, legislative, and judicial powers; alert citizens to change their normal behaviors; or order government agencies to implement emergency preparedness plans.

At least two constitutional rights are subject to revocation during a state of emergency: The right of habeas corpus, under Article 1, Section 9 and the right to a grand jury for members of the National Guard when in actual service, under the Fifth Amendment.

The Insurrection Act of 1807 is the set of laws that govern the U.S. president's ability to deploy troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion. The National Emergencies Act set a limit of two years on emergency declarations unless the president explicitly extends them, and requires the president to specify in advance which legal provisions will be invoked.


And sure enough, it looks like we are in yet another National emergency as of July 19, 2013, and it lasts for a year.


The activities of significant transnational criminal organizations continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. For this reason, the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13581 of July 24, 2011, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond July 24, 2013. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to transnational criminal organizations declared in Executive Order 13581.


Notice from the President -- Regarding the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Significant Transnational Criminal Organizations

The Nation has been in a constant state of National Emergency since 2001 (09/14/01 to be precise). This isn't some new information that points towards Obama becoming some totalitarian ruler.

I'm sure there's likely some behind-the-scenes agenda pushing these EOs and shifting the paradigm towards another World War or anther revolution, after all large-scale conflict has proven in the past to be great for the economy, but I can assure you that Obama is not the head of this hydra.

Pawn? Sure. Dictator? Mmm' no.

Bush did it, so I guess this makes it right since you all loved Bush so much, correct? Under that same premise Nixon wiretapped folks, so Obama can do it also, correct again?.

Plus, I never said that he was a dictator, yet. I said that we are heading in that direction.

This article was from the Washington Times in March of 2013. Obviously I am not alone in my feelings that Obama has found another route to find an end to his means. Plus like I have mentioned in previous posts, he is threatening to take his executive actions to new heights, and he has already started with the EPA.


Move over executive orders. President Obama has another tool to push policy absent congressional stamp — and it’s far less known and controversial. It’s called executive action.

The beauty of the action is that it avoids Republican criticisms and conservative charges that Mr. Obama acts like a “monarch” when issuing executive orders, The Hill reports. So while on paper, Mr. Obama may actually appear as if he’s issuing fewer executive orders than many other presidents who have served two terms, the reality is he’s still finding plenty of ways to bypass Congress. He’s just not calling those ways executive orders.



Mr. Obama has disdained the executive order label for “executive actions,” Mr. Mayer said. And he’s used that action to push his own policy on a variety of issues, from gun control to immigration to overseas drone strikes, The Hill reports


Forget executive orders: Obama finds creative means to bypass Congress

Again you're misunderstanding the context of people's words.
I'm not condoning his use of executive powers.
What I'm saying is, Bush did it, yet he didn't stick around after his
second term to reign as Dictator of America.

I agree that a President shouldn't have to use EOs to be effective, but unfortunately
Congress is broken and our economy, ruined during the previous administration, is still in shambles.
It's hemorrhaging jobs and money, and there doesn't appear to be a clear fix in sight.

Well how about "trying" a rebuttal? So then you think it is appropriate for him to sidestep congress? What's your opinion on executive actions? What's your opinion on him openly proclaiming that he will get around congress on his own?

I don't think there's anything to refute in this thread. He hasn't sidestep congress so there's nothing to refute there, further more it has already been posted that there have been quite a few presidents that have made far more executive actions than Obama.

This thread is based on a video purposefully taken out of context.

Presidents since Truman have had these kinds of EO's they are called Continuity of Operations. In effect they are just emergency plans in the case that TSHTF.

@OP,

If you thought the video is far fetched as well, then why did you post it and REALLY why did you use the same title as the original source. The title is false. Whoever made in the first place is a liar, and your placing it here on ATS makes you ???

There really should be a way to give negative flags to total BS posts like this.

@OP, you cannot even handle the vocabulary of this topic, yet you posted this thread.


"Executive actions"? Since the President is the chief of the Executive branch, all his actions are by definition executive ones.

I think you mean Executive Orders. As to what one thinks of them, first off they've been made for a long time and Clinton and Bush II made plenty of them. For some things Executive Orders make sense, but obviously for other matters it may become the case of a president assuming powers that he may not have, and then it becomes a Constitutional issue. But by precedent, Presidents have some leeway in issuing executive orders. Contrary to this harebrained video you posted, it is not some new power Obama all of a sudden gave himself in his move to become dictator of the US.

I'm really sick and tired of sensational, mendaciously titled threads here at AT as well as the bunk sources that go along with them -- particularly for political threads.
