Have we learned the lessons from history yet? How many times have we allowed concentrating so much power in the hands of one person? It always happens and when it goes bad. Everyone is hurt because of it. President Bush signed PD-51 as a major power grab away from congress and the courts. The congress does not have permission to read the documents considered classified. This makes the President himself an absolute dictator. In October 2008, the congress refused to pass the bailouts to the bankers because the will of the people. They sent the bill to the Senate and brought it back to the house for a vote again. This time the President and the Treasury secretary threatened martial law against congress if the bailout did not pass. A threat as a blatant act of war, a siege against the people’s congress and the constitution.
The John Warner Defense Authorization Act and The Military Commissions Act are laws to use the military against the people and the states who refuse to go along with the New World Order. I have to wonder down in Austin Texas if the suspending commercial flights over Texas were just a cover story and the Texas legislature was under threats of a mechanized infantry division out of Ft. Hood, taking over the state capital if they dared challenge Washington and the White House prohibiting groping with invasive searches at the airports that violate state law. There is nothing to prove such a threat was being used against the legislators. It is just my suspicion. It would not surprise me if was really a threat to the Texas Senate if they passed the bill. President Lincoln used Military force to arrest and detain the entire Maryland Legislature to prevent a vote on secession and protested military occupation of union soldiers in their state.
It is now a rumor that President Obama will use the same war powers Abraham Lincoln invoked,using the 14th amendment authority to coerce congress to vote on raising the debt ceiling and taxes. He will override congress to borrow and tax us bypassing the legislative process. Putting a gun to the people's congress head to do as the dictator tells them. An act of war and blatant show of force by a dictator. I think this will be the tipping point were the people will have no choice but to push back. They cannot allow this president to posses this power unchallenged anymore. I just hope the Military will stand own and not obey. Their loyalty is to the US Constitution and not to the commander in Chief when he acts unlawfully interfering with the business of the people's house. It is the Military duty to preserve the institution, not attack it at the will of the President because he is not getting his way. This might be the over reach that will push the American people over the edge to start resisting illegal Federal power.
After Obama leaves, office and we get a new Congress sworn in who might adhere to the Constitution. The extra ordinary powers not granted in the Constitution must be stripped from the President he gave himself under executive orders and Presidential directives bypassing congress over the decades. The balance of power between all three branches must be restored. I hope we all learn from this recent history starting not just with Obama. Ever since President Lincoln though FDR, Nixon, Bush 41, Clinton and Bush 42 all the way to Obama. All Presidents who held office. The President gave himself powers and congress gave over powers that have become dangerous to the nation. To allow this power to be concentrated in the hands of one person is a disaster. The founders knew this danger very well living under a king. This is why the Constitution granted the President very limited powers. So he does not have the powers of a King with a standing army at his disposal.Now the President today has an ego of an Emperor with US military under his control. Now we are living the consequences ,allowing this to happen on our watch. On the other hand this could be the over reach of power that awakens the sleeping giant.
