Obama Policies Are Clearing a Path for a Dictator

“It’s been a long, tough journey. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing that we all ought to remember is that as much as good as we have done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we we were inheriting so many challenges, that we’re not even halfway there yet. When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we can believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy,” President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago

Podesta’s Center for American Progress in their definitive essay, The Power of the President, Recommendations to Advance Progressive Change subtly outlines a virtual blueprint for a U.S. Presidency that rules by fiat, ignoring the laws of the nation. Their reasoning is that Congress has failed to act, but that is nothing more than an excuse to circumvent our Constitution.

With obfuscating language, it says that the President should use the powers he has to ignore Congress and the confines of the Constitution. It outlines a plan for an extremely powerful Executive Branch.
They advise the President to use his “constitutional powers”   -
  • Executive orders
  • Rulemaking
  • Agency management
  • Convening and creating public-private partnerships
  • Commanding the armed forces
  • Diplomacy
Obama likes to manufacture a crisis to help propagandize actions which would normally repulse the American public. Under this administration, when Congress has acted, they have often had to do so under the threat of a “crisis.”
If the Stimulus wasn’t passed without reading it, the economy would have collapsed according to the President. Obamacare was another “crisis.”  Bailouts and takeovers of banks, AIG, and car companies were forced due to “crises.” They were taken out of the hands of the  bankruptcy courts; Obama donors were put before the investors in the first case while creditors were put behind the union in the second, even though the law specified otherwise.
Obama has empowered his government agencies to become dictatorial arms of the Executive Branch. The EPA, USDA and other agencies are now to be feared by companies and individuals from the Amish farmer who was bullied into shutting down his organic farm to the Sackett vs. EPA Case which has recently been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Contempt by the DOJ for Voter ID laws is nothing more than an attempt to steal the vote and stuff the ballot boxes. Allowing ACORN and the New Black Panthers to run amok is proof positive that the government supports corruption of the vote. Let’s not forget Obama’s campaign workers, the Occupiers or OWS, who are committed to starting race wars and class wars. They are led by organizations such as the AFLO-CIO, Media Matters and Move On who have ongoing direct access to the White House.
Obama’s diplomacy is to operate in secrecy with Medvedev, the Iranians and we can only imagine who else.
