“But one of the things that I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.”

www.theblaze.com...

There you have it. Through executive orders(imperial decree),ndaa, war powers act, patriot act, and emergency powers act he is now an emperor. If martial law is activated he(or the next emperor) would be king forever because he can suspend congress and the constitution.

He's the king of the USA and all will bow before the emperor or be thrown into a FEMA camp gulag.

Before someone invokes Bush.. I couldnt stand him either... and I cant stand Obama. This president and admin has done a LOT I dislike and find dangerous, but this is a cherry on top of in your face imperialist thinking. Now I am totally agreeing with the idea that my beloved country is truly an Oligarchy... and going to get much much further from any sort of republic than ever. Could you imagine if any previous contemporary president just blurted this sort of circumvention of protocol and law out in such a way? He'd have been run out on a rail and crucified in the media.

Technically nearly every president has been like that, at least when it comes to executive orders. Obama has been quite soft to be honest, when it comes to issuing executive orders, especially considering the current economic situation.

Roosevelt - 3522 executive orders
Carter -320
Reagan -381
Bush - 166
Clinton - 364
Bush - 291
Obama -167 currently

en.wikipedia.org...

I would not say Obama shines out of this being more dictating than any other president. Rather he has been less or somewhat similar to others. Although considering the economic situation, I personally would have expected more action, rather than less.

For me its not amount, its content, context, and the haughty pronouncement that if the law doesnt suit him.. he will simply circumvent it. If congress doesnt do what he wants when he wants it.. he will simply use his pen and force it. That is NOT what executive orders are meant to be used as.

Fear not. Puppet Obama will be replaced when it is time to replace him. The circus will come to town so those who still believe in the voting process can feel they have expressed their will.

This monster juggernaut with heads abundant quenches its thirst on our marrow regardless of what head sways in the wind of Washington.

Doesn't matter how many executive orders someone makes as long it's within the constitutional rights. Obama uses executive orders for the wrong reason that the constitution does not allow him. He is lawless and plans to legislate with executive orders which is unconstitutional.

what his majesty left out is his pen and his phone belong to the taxpayer. and that he hasn't got a clue about what leadership is. but then again he's a lawyer, so he's evil anyway .
I'm glad we get to see theatre like this every day, it sure beats "real housewives" and "dr who" by a mile. the only thing more vile than someone in the government is someone who would "vote" to put them there and then feel "GOOD" about themselves because they're part of the process! that's lke watching somebody fly an airliner into a day care center and feeling good about yourself cause you worhsip the same demon the people who were flying the plane does! anyway, its good to see einstein was right about insanity.

At some point in time, if it goes that direction in a serious 'one man' kind of way (and well beyond anything now), then people in positions where the question matters to answer will have to ask if a single man, for individual loyalty, is worth doing something Americans have been raised to know is wrong on every level of life and BEING an American. (acting against other Americans)

I believe, IF the President were to push it that far, he'd be very shocked and very disappointed in finding the loyalty to him, personally, extends an amazingly short distance beyond his inner circle of people saying what he wants to hear. It could be at some point, Obama calls to issue an order and someone on the other end just outright says 'make me'.

My Little Tasty Furry Friend,,, Let us Hope You Are Correct in You Belief.
But, let me ask you, who would that person be?
For years American's have assumed their Military Chief of Staff there in Washington
would keep an eye on the Crazy Rants of a Little Dictator Running Lose in The Oval Office.

But as of 2009 Obama has been relieving the Top Generals for one reason or another, forcing them to retire.


The firing of military leaders goes much further than top generals, however. On its Facebook page, Breitbart.com compiled a list of more than 197 military commanders, mostly at the rank of Colonel or above, who have been purged by the Obama administration since 2009.



Is the Obama administration in the midst of a military purge? This year alone, nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the administration, and retired generals and current commanders who have spoken to TheBlaze believe that political ideology is the primary impetus behind the effort. “I think they’re using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don’t agree with them or not toe the party line,”



Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, who has been an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, believes it is part of the president’s strategy to reduce America’s standing in the world. “[Obama is] intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged,” he contended.
Vallely’s assessment was echoed by a source at the Pentagon who wished to remain anonymous because the source was not authorized to speak on the subject. He or she contended that “young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job–just keep your mouth shut.”


Not only is the Obama administration apparently on a mission to undermine the integrity of the military in this way, but it has also revealed itself to be entirely intolerant of dissent of any kind. Whether it is reporters or domestic opposition groups such as the Tea Party, Obama has made clear he will aggressively pursue anyone who defies his agenda. Now it seems that chilling message his been sent to the military as well.

Obama's Military Purges
So many, Career Military.


There have also been reports that seem to indicate Obama has a litmus test for military officers these days. Apparently, he only wants officers who do not have trouble firing on US citizens. Several of these now retired officers have come forward and said that they think Obama is preparing for war against the US. We have also heard Obama himself talk about ‘My Military.’ Whatever you think might be happening, it is certainly clear that Obama is looking to change and move things in a different direction.



This is an incredibly alarming series of events. It is one of the largest and fastest purges of military commanders that has ever been recorded. These ‘purges’ even included two heads of nuclear strategic commands. This has even made veteran reporter Dianne Sawyer step up and public ask what is the next step that Obama is planning. This is something that every American should be asking themselves as we watch the evidence of what is happening.

What do YOU think? What is the reason for this purge of the military? Can the firing or relieving of duty of 9 top-level generals and admirals this quickly be considered a mere coincidence? What do you think Obama is planning? Why does he want to remake the military to HIS liking? Will the military some day be called upon to fire on US citizens?

Obama Changes Directions
What other leaders in History Purged their Top Military Leaders? The Difference is MAO and Stain used a bullet to the back of the head for their purge, Obama hasn't,,,,,,,,,,,

Being a president, head of state or whatever is truly a thankful job, no ones gonna like you.

All this Bush/Obama hating is silly, whoever is in charge would be hated, anyone, heck if Chuck Norris was president everyone would hate him too, any EVERYONE likes Chuck.

Name one leader of a country in history that isn't hated...there isn't one. Its like being a parent or teacher, they gotta make decisions which might not be liked but in the grand scheme of things are for the good of you really, or your country at least.

More and More Obama shows his true motive.

1) To cause a lack of trust in Government. During his term there is a 80% increase in the lack of trust in government among liberals and independents. Cher: Obama let us down And seeing congress are pushing their own agenda and not the will of the people by allowing fake shutdowns and other political madness from their ranks.

2) To cause a lack of support at home and abroad in any type of military action. Not acting in national interests or interests of our nations close ties like Israel, South Korea, Japan or the Philippines. And his military purges.

3) To cause a distrust in the workings of the IRS (Political Targeting), FBI (fast and furious), CIA, NSA (Snowden and other leaks) by faining ignorance and allowing leaks on national interests home and abroad from the White House Office and administration.

leading to the fourth.

4) to begin a socialist dictatorship by passing his own agenda above and beyond the will of the people.

Obama Agenda Push

This last one disturbs me the most seeing our government is set up to hinder this activity.
