More Than A Smidgen Of Truth Here Too

Inept Then Obama?

One of two things have to be the case with Barack Obama in my mind. He is either the most corrupt politician I have ever seen or the most inept man to ever occupy the oval office. If you need to learn what "inept" means then I suggest you keep reading because he has a lot of help it seems.

I've never made any bones about the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is nothing but a snake oil salesman who has great rhetorical abilities. I also never cross swords in the realization that the there were enough people thirsting for an elixir to cure what they thought were the underlying problems facing our nation. Be careful in the future what you thirst for my friends and neighbors.

I don't think Obama is inept and he is actually very cunning to say the least. Cunning in a politician is dangerous and in the chief executive of this nation can be suicidal for the people. There is presently a group of Democratic Senators and Representatives who want to further Obama's corruption and lawlessness which confuses the issue even more than it has been the last five plus years.

The Pen And Phone Huh? Try Lawless...

What is disconcerting to people who believe in the US Constitution, our form of government and the rule of law is Obama's disregard and selectivity in enforcing the laws of this nation. I personally don't give a flip if you think the US Constitution is irrelevant because it remains the law of this land. He also has a very corrupt Attorney General, corrupt from way back in the Clinton years, aiding and abetting his move to "fundamentally transform" this country. Obama forgot he said he was going to do that in the latest interview with Bill O'Reilly.

Obama has been intent in making Congress irrelevant since assuming office. He was that way even when his party had both houses of Congress. His inability to get a Cap and Trade bill through is a prime example. So he does an end around with his pen even when Congress said not only no but hell no.

Never in a million years would I have thought that a group of elected representatives would jump on board the USS Obama and totally disregard their oath of office and help Obama make Congress even more irrelevant than it is, in essence aid and abet him in his lawlessness. I wonder if the word "dictatorship" has any meaning to them. The executive branch is charged with enforcing the laws passed by Congress not writing them itself.

The Congressional Full Employment Caucus

If you haven't heard of the Congressional Full Employment Caucus you need to turn off the Lames Stream Media and tune into some actual news - be it broadcast or the written word. Here we have more elected officials from the legislative branch going rogue with Obama himself. Now this group of misfits is led by a complete idiot named Shelia Jackson-Lee. I regret the fact that the woman is a Texan being one myself.

Here's her layout about "the plan." That select group defines its chief purpose as providing Obama with executive orders to sign. That has never been a lawmakers job nor should it ever be, When that happens impeachment of the offenders needs to be on the table. They took an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution not violate it. Is there any wonder that Congress seems to be running helter skelter with the likes of a Jackson-Lee getting elected and reelected?

Here are the woman's exact words: "We'll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength. I think that should be our number one agenda. Let's write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment." The woman is daft. The House of Representatives has sent numerous jobs bills to the US Senate where Harry "The Democratic Obstructionist" Reid has filed them in his oval file. Full employment is not achieved by circumventing the US Constitution.

For The Doubting Thomas's Who Think I Make Things Up.

I didn't even have to pull out my trusty pocket Constitution to know that the legislative branch's duty is to pass "laws" - not executive orders - for the chief executives approval or disapproval AFTER being duly passed by a majority of the members of each chamber. So maybe Jackson-Lee should trot over to Scary Harry Reid's office and demand that he bring to the Senate floor for debate and passage those 30 plus bills that he is sitting on to help create jobs.

What Jackson-Lee is proposing is to go rogue, violate the US Constitution and churn out those executive orders for the President's pen to sign. Maybe a mass impeachment trail is on the horizon, Here's a short constitutional course for Jackson-Lee and the uniformed.

It's right there in the US Constitution that Congress can: "lay and collect taxes, provide for the country's common defense and general welfare, borrow money, regulate international and interstate trade, establish immigration and bankruptcy laws, coin money and punish counterfeiters, raise armies and declare war, and handle a few other functions." There isn't one word in there about writing executive orders to be rubber-stamped by any President.

This group of Democratic misfits, they all have a (D) by their name, desires to circumvent their sworn duty. Is that treason? The nation voted for a divided Congress and it seems that this group wants to join the lawless Obamites in their thirst for power. Be careful what you thirst for is my sound advice to anyone. They don't want to work under the restrictions that the Founding Fathers intentionally wrote into the US Constitution about the separation of powers and a system of checks and balances placed upon any branch of our government. Why are they there? To stop any of the three branches from seizing absolute power and tyrannizing the people. They lived through that and I don't want to myself.

The federal government doesn't have the ability, other than jiggering the numbers, of providing full employment in the private sector. That group of misfits, even in conjunction with lawless Obama, couldn't do that even if they had the authority of this nation's laws to do so. They don't. A lofty sounding name for any caucus won't solve the problems we face. What will is for these self-aggrandizing idiots we keep electing to go sit down, get out the private sector and act like a bunch of clams.

Mind sharing this? I didn't think so...

I hope every one who visits your hub pages reads them completely. I can tell from comments here and there, only occasionally, there are those who do you and themselves a disservice and don't read the whole page. I call Barack and these Democrats The Baracketeers, (a Racketeer being a person who engages in dishonest and fraudulent business dealings) elected and/or appointed officials who engage in dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies. Barack, of course is the father of Baracketeering and you Frog have laid out this case about out as well as it can be made.

Personally, I think Obama is a both corrupt and inept. He doesn't know a thing about economics and frankly it is evident he doesn't give a fig. As for Jackson, everyone who keeps this woman in office should be arrested for being criminally dumb! Up and awesome and useful in the right hands.

By the time Obama leaves office, he will be the most reviled president in history, because all the provisions of Obamacare will be in full force by then and Americans will finally realize what an awful law he and the Democrats have created.

That's why he keeps putting off the worst provisions until after the 2014 election. That is lawlessness of course, because he's supposed to faithfully execute the laws, not put them off for political reasons.

I hope you are wrong Will and I think you may be. Obama, remember, had little to do with the creation of Obamacare - actually even our elected representatives didn't write it. The debacle of Obamacare should be laid directly at the feet of the Democrat Party. They are the ones who ignored their constituents and rammed it down the country's throat. Given Obama's ability to blame everyone and everything else for his failures I am confident that the blame will eventually be laid at his party's feet and so his legacy will remain a legacy of blaming everyone and everything other than a black man which only racists would do. I'm OK with that because it is now his party we need to defeat, he is already defeated.

Will now he's wanting to delay things until after 2016. It's a moving target that he doesn't have any authority to move.

tsad - Ovamacare was crafted by Obama's handlers. Ezekiel Emmanuel being one of the prime offenders.

Although our Founders intended that Congress be the strongest branch of the federal government, they were very cognizant, and in fact worried, that one day the entire central government would be controlled by a President and his appointees in the Administration and the Courts, effectively shredding even the pretense of representative government. That day has arrived. Our Founders provided for Presidential Executive Orders for the sole purpose implementing law as promulgated by Congress. Executive Orders were never intended for the purpose of "making law." No Executive Order can Constitutionally impose any mandate or restriction on the States or the People, but legally they may only be used to provide directives to federal agencies for the purposes of enforcing the will of Congress relating to laws duly passed. Sadly, Obama is now publicly promising that he will serially abuse Executive Orders and use them to "make federal law." This is exactly why the Founders constructed the Constitution so that Congress would be the strongest federal branch. But none of this matters if all three federal branches refuse to actually obey the Constitution. Instinctively, our Founders knew what Warren Buffett once quipped in one of his Berkshire annual reports: "When I buy a company, I look for a management that's honest, intelligent, and energetic. But make sure you got the first one, or the other two will kill you." All this points to why total power cannot be safely vouched in single person - the end result is always capricious and summary dictatorship. And history proves that no nation has ever moved from tyranny to liberty absent violent and bloody revolution. It deeply saddens me that Obama almost seems to be begging, by his words and actions, that such a "storming of the Bastille" take place.

By now most should recognize that Obamacare has very little to do with healthcare. It was necessary to destroy our existing healthcare structure to move us to government controlled healthcare, and Obamacare was the wrecking ball.

Obama and the Democrats wanted this and now they have it. Keep in mind that this was the first time in history the government has been allowed to force citizens to buy something even if they don't want it. Had the Supreme Court Justice Roberts not ruled this a "tax," it would not be in effect today. I still smell a rat on this ruling.

As usual Jim, there is nothing to add that you haven't covered in your hub. A great job of telling it like it is as always.

frog prince. Thank you for writing this. Great Job. I know of several people that are hip on Obama. It is like they are blind to his deceptive mind and actions. You hit the nail on the head dear brother. Obama is cunning and sly. He is into power control! His seed is deep rooted and comes from many forms that follow him, support and enable him.

God tells us to pray for our leaders. This is all part of Gods plan. God knew who we would put in office. God allows things to happen for a reason. So we draw closer to HIM. I will pray for Obama and trust in God. Mr Presidents true colors will come out one day frog prince.

Our God still sits at the throne. One day no more sin or tears no more pain or suffering.. May God Bless your works my friend. Best wishes for a wonderful healthy and prosperous new year. Love to you and yours.

God turns ALL things for the good for those that love HIM. Amen Romans 8:28.

The two party system is a revolving door of corruption. You want your vote to matter - but it doesn't. Politicians are bought and sold. Pick your side - they are essentially both the same. If you want to control people, control the supply of money. Obama is a joke, we know it. But look at the clowns on the other side as well. There are alternatives but they have no voice and never will because money - not values, not morality, not the constitution ultimately controls what happens.
