The REAL ‘Obstructionists’ In Congress On Immigration Or ANYTHING Else: 357 House-Passed Bills Are Sitting On Democrat Harry Reid’s Desk In The Senate

August 4, 2014

The lies and slanders in our fascist-in-all-but-name nation are amazing.  And those lies and slanders are upheld and even propagated by the most dishonest media machine since Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda (and at least the Nazis called it what it actually was).

Barack Hussein Obama – our Liar-in-Chief – publicly demonized House Republicans for trying to pass a bill.  After mocking them for not passing a bill.

The dishonesty of the man is staggering.  And the media’s dishonest coverage is the only rival competing in mindboggling hypocrisy and deceit with the president.

The simple fact of the matter is that the Republican House passed a bill dealing with immigration and then went on vacation.  In fact, they passed TWO.  Versus the Democrat-controlled Senate, which did NOT pass a bill and then went on vacation.

But who didn’t do their job according to Obama?  The ones who passed the bill.  Because the ones who didn’t bother to pass a bill were his guys.

Right now, as of today, there are 357 House-passed Bills sitting on Harry Reid’s desk in the Senate.  And Harry Reid will bring them up for a vote over his dead, stinking body.

So, I mean, in an honest universe, WHICH party is the party of “obstructionism”???

Obama believes himself to be a tyrant pharaoh god-king whose will is the will of the gods.  Anyone or anything that disagrees with him is to either be ignored or demonized.

The House of Representatives is a co-equal branch of government.  According to the Constitution, the House actually has not only the right but the duty to pass bills that its members believe in.

Barack Hussein Obama is a fascist tyrant who has clearly radically departed from the Constitution.

The most amazing thing is that I don’t say that according to my standard or even according to the standards of conservatives.  I say that according to Barack Obama’s OWN standard.  I mean, Barack Obama is now literally a fascist and treasonous president according to his very own words:

During an immigration speech in San Francisco, California, President Barack Obama (D) was shouted down by a 24-year-old undocumented activist who protested the Obama administration’s deportation policy.

Minutes into the speech, Ju Hung, a South Korean, UC Berkeley graduate asked Obama to exercise executive authority to halt the deportation of all undocumented immigrants.

“Mr. Obama, I need your help. There are thousands of families being separated,” Hong said. “Please use your executive order to halt the deportation to all 11.5 million immigrants. You have the power to stop the deportations for all undocumented immigrants.”

As the Secret Service started to remove other activists who shouted, “Stop deportations,” a visibly irritated Obama told them to stay.

“Actually, I don’t,” Obama replied. “If in fact I could pass all these laws without Congress, I would do so. But we’re also a nation of laws, that’s part of our tradition. The easy way out is to yell and pretend that I can do something by violating our laws, but what I’m proposing is the harder path which is to use our democratic process, to achieve the same goals… but it requires us lobbying and getting it done.”

Obama has long maintained that exempting too many deportations “would be difficult to defend legally.” In August and again in September, Obama said that he could not unilaterally stop all deportations because he would violate federal law.

Barack Hussein Obama has ALREADY been lawless according to his own words when he “passed” the DREAM Act by act of executive tyranny.  The DREAM Act not only failed to pass in the House of Representatives, but even failed in the US Senate.  But that was okay, because we have a Nazi Führer rather than an American president.  So he just “passed” it himself by tyrannous fiat.

I laughed as I located the immediately above link because it details that as Obama flagrantly violated the Constitution and the law by his own rhetoric, he also promised his DREAM Act fiat would be “the right thing to do for our security.”

And of course everyone who isn’t a complete fool knows how that worked out.

Obama is THE most documented liar in the entire history of he human race.  When you examine the sheer number of gargantuan lies and the sheer number of times he told those lies over and over again, it is simply a fact that no human being has been documented in lying more times to more people than our Liar-in-Chief.

I reflect on this new sense to liberal Newsweek editor Evan Thomas’ now-clearly prophetic words declared on MSNBC:

I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

Obama stands above the country, above our laws, above our Constitution.  And yes, he’s “sort of God” now.  Because of the pathological evil of the Democrat Party.

Not only should Barack Obama be impeached, but the star witness against him at his impeachment ought to be none other than Barack Obama.

But let me get back to the US Senate and the real source of the obstructionism that Obama and even the Democrats keep demonically citing: it’s nearly ALL on YOU, Democrats.

The Wall Street Journal has a great piece titled “Harry Reid’s Senate Blockade” that details the TRUTH you won’t hear on any of the networks:

The U.S. Senate failed to advance another piece of popular bipartisan legislation late Monday, and the reason tells the real story of Washington gridlock in the current Congress. To wit, Harry Reid has essentially shut down the Senate as a place to debate and vote on policy.

The Majority Leader’s strategy was once again on display as the Senate failed to get the 60 votes to move a popular energy efficiency bill co-sponsored by New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen and Ohio Republican Rob Portman. Mr. Reid blamed the defeat on Republican partisanship. But the impasse really came down to Mr. Reid’s blockade against amendments that might prove politically difficult for Democrats.

The Nevadan used parliamentary tricks to block energy-related amendments to an energy bill. This blockade is now standard procedure as he’s refused to allow a vote on all but nine GOP amendments since last July. Mr. Reid is worried that some of these amendments might pass with support from Democrats, thus embarrassing a White House that opposes them.  […]

It’s important to understand how much Mr. Reid’s tactics have changed the Senate. Not too long ago it was understood that any Senator could get a floor vote if he wanted it. The minority party, often Democrats, used this right of amendment to sponsor votes that would sometimes put the majority on the spot. It’s called politics, rightly understood. This meant the Senate debated national priorities and worked its bipartisan will. Harry Reid’s Senate has become a deliberate obstacle to democratic accountability.  […]

It is staggering for me whenever I try to comprehend the mind-blowing dishonesty that characterizes our age.  Obama passes sweeping executive order after sweeping executive order that even the celebrated LIBERAL constitutional scholar calls “the rise of an uber-presidency.”  Obama’s and Democrats’ response – being the pathological liar he and his defenders are – is to assert that he has passed fewer executive orders than other presidents.  Which therefore clearly makes him less fascist.

Okay.  I came across a claim that Obama has signed “only” 139 executive orders.  So I’m the president, and I sign only TWO executive orders as follows: 1) all power is hereby transferred to the office of the president; and 2) the Democrat Party is hereby declared a criminal and treasonous organization and every single Democrat is to be hunted down with dogs and burned alive.

And according to Barack Obama and his Democrats I would officially be sixty-nine times LESS fascist than Obama.  Which ought to tell you how incredibly and how pathologically fascist Obama truly is.

Here’s another example of the stunning dishonesty both of the Democrat Party and of the media that serves as their propagandist arm: the demonization over any suggestion to impeach Obama.  If it is so truly evil, why did Democrats do it?  The fact is that they actually called for impeachment hearings against President Bush.  But the screams of anguished outrage are unreal, in spite of the fact that House Speaker John Boehner declared, We have no plans to impeach the President. We have no future plans to impeach the president.”   I mean, short of declaring that even if Obama were caught on video setting up an al Qaeda terrorist attack against America the House would still not vote to impeach him, what more could the man possibly say?

The Democrat resolution to impeach Bush had 11 Democrat co-sponsors – which is already far beyond what the current GOP House has done against Obama.  Here it is: House Resolution 1258, “Impeaching George W. Bush, President of the United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors.”  Please show me the Republican version of that against Obama.

If every news story describing Republicans and impeaching Obama also documented the historical fact that Democrats went even further than Republicans have – for a LOT less reason – I have a feeling there wouldn’t be so much ginned-up outrage.  But of course that would be honest.  And the media is following their dishonest president – who has repeatedly made public statements implying that he is the first president in the history of the republic to face partisan opposition and why, oh-why must there be so much Republican hate???

I can only suppose it’s for the same reason that there’s so much Democrat dishonesty and depravity.  And naked fascism.

Jonathon Turley – again, a true LIBERAL constitutional scholar, has testified that “We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis with sweeping implications for our system of government.”  The most second-cited expert on the Constitution in America – and did I mention he’s a liberal? – said what Obama is doing is “A dangerous change for our system.”

Turley proceeded to denounce the Congress for its failure to reign Obama in.  But what he fails to understand as a liberal is that Democrats WILL NOT reign in their antichrist and if the Republicans try to they will be demonized by the most pathologically dishonest media that has ever existed, bar none.

And all the while Harry Reid has fascistically warped the United States Senate while everybody blames the House that sent 357 bills to Harry Reid for “obstructionism.”  And House Democrats WHO ACTUALLY HAD A DAMN BILL TO IMPEACH BUSH are weeping in the streets and tearing their robes and pouring ash on their heads as they lament how evil the Republicans are for trying to do something they have in fact actually pointedly said they aren’t going to do.  And all the while Obama lawlessly threatens to do something via executive order with illegal immigrants that he is already on the record explaining would be utterly lawless for him to do.

And is the media reporting the truth?  Not on your life.  They’re too busy reporting that I should stop all the hating.

This is a pure fascist age that is so pathologically dishonest it screams in rage when it is named for what it is.  Which means we are ready for the OTHER “man of lawlessness,” the coming ultimate big-government beast, to be revealed.

The beast is coming.  And his Useful-Idiot-in-Chief and his gang of lawless, fascist thugs (like Harry Reid and like Lois Lerner and Eric Holder who is protecting them all) are already here.

EASILY Refuting The Asinine Liberal Argument That Bush Is More Fascist Than Obama Because Bush Issued More Executive Orders

February 19, 2014

Okay, this shouldn’t take long.

Republicans are outraged at the number of times Obama has simply either completely abrogated law or simply illegally wrote a law by himself when that power is invested solely in Congress.

Democrats use this “moral” logic:

The New York Magazine listed all presidents serving during the past 115 years, ranking them by use of executive orders. The president issuing the most executive orders in that period of 115 years was FDR who issued more than 3,000. The ranking proceeds down from there to Hoover [R], Wilson [D], Harding [R], Coolidge [R], Taft [R], Teddy Roosevelt [R], Truman [D], Carter [D], Kennedy [D], Ford [R], Johnson [D], Nixon [R], Eisenhower [R], Reagan [R], Clinton [D], George Herbert Walker Bush [41] [R], McKinley [R], George W. Bush [43] [R] and, drum roll please, the president with the fewest executive orders in the past 115 years was President Obama [D] with 167.

If the Republicans’ argument were that “executive orders” are inherently evil and every executive order is as wicked as any other, then that argument would be valid rather than laughably stupid.  But that ISN’T their argument.  A president has the right to issue executive orders; he just doesn’t have a right to change the law.

Watch me now proceed to blow up the Democrat reasoning in about two seconds:

Fascist right-wing Nazi President Mikey will issue only TWO executive orders during his presidency for life:

1. All power is hereby rendered to the executive.

2. The Democrat Party is hereby a terrorist and criminal organization and all of its members and all of the people who have supported it shall hereby be hunted down with dogs and burned alive.

And here’s the beauty of this: President Mikey responds to the Democrats’ charge of fascism by pointing out that Barack Obama was actually 98.8 percent more fascist because he issued 167 orders to President Mikey’s two.

It’s amazing, isn’t it.  I have just seized total dictatorial power and literally executed all of my political opposition, but according to Democrats’ current “reasoning,” I can’t be a fascist because Obama issued more executive orders than I did.

I hope I don’t have to explain more about how that is an utterly dumbass argument and that anybody and everybody who would or who has used it is a mindless ideologue zombie.

Just how morally idiotic ARE Democrats?  It is a mystery that only God knows.  I know only that no human being created in the image of God could be such a fool, and that the Democrats’ moral insanity is the result of their pissing on the image of God and declaring themselves the mindless “progress” of random evolution as they put their faith in the notion that they somehow kept mutating into smarter and smarter creatures.

But HERE is the problem with MANY of the executive orders that Obama has written: he has not only materially changed (read “fundamentally transformed”) laws that were passed by Congress, that he signed, and that as according to his role as president becomes his job to “faithfully execute” rather than abrogate or change, he has actually flat-out created new crimes that had never existed before.

Obama: It’s nonsensical for me to enforce the law as it is written
By: DrJohn

Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute testified before Congress yesterday about the dangerous territory into which the country is headed. Obama took an oath to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” and Cannon spells out in clear detail how badly Obama is flouting his oath and the Constitution.

The law is a reciprocal pact between the government and the governed. Public order requires government to remain faithful to the law as much as it requires the citizenry to do so. If the actions of government officials lead citizens to conclude that those officials are no longer meaningfully bound by the law, then citizens will rightly conclude that neither are they.

Since he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law on March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama has failed to execute that law faithfully.

The president has unilaterally taken taxpayer dollars made available by the PPACA and diverted them from their congressionally authorized purposes toward purposes for which no Congress has ever appropriated funds.

He has unilaterally and repeatedly rewritten the statute to dispense taxpayer dollars that no federal law authorizes him to spend and that the PPACA expressly forbids him to spend.

He has unilaterally issued blanket waivers to requirements that the PPACA does not authorize him to waive.

At the same time he has declined to collect taxes the PPACA orders him to collect, he has unilaterally rewritten the statute to impose billions of dollars in taxes that the PPACA expressly forbids him to impose, and to incur billions of dollars in debt that the statute expressly forbids him to incur.

He has unilaterally rewritten the PPACA to allow health insurance products that the statute expressly forbids. He has encouraged consumers, insurers, and state officials to violate a federal law he enacted.

And he has taken these steps for the purpose of forestalling democratic action by the people’s elected representatives in Congress.

President Obama’s unfaithfulness to the PPACA is so wanton, it is no longer accurate to say the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is “the law of the land.” Today, with respect to health care, the law of the land is whatever one man says it is – or whatever this divided Congress will let that one man get away with saying. What this one man says may flatly contradict federal statute. It may suddenly confer benefits on favored groups, or tax disfavored groups without representation. It may undermine the careful and costly planning done by millions of individuals and businesses. It may change from day to day. This method of lawmaking has more in common with monarchy than democracy or a constitutional republic.

Obama has run roughshod over the PPACA law. Cannon points out the worst abuse:

The president’s most egregious violation of his duty to execute faithfully the PPACA is his attempt – under the rubric of that law – to tax, borrow, and spend billions of dollars that statute expressly prohibits him to spend.

The relevant provisions of the Act are complex, but the law is abundantly clear. The PPACA authorizes the creation of state-specific health insurance “exchanges” that regulate health insurance within each state. It asserts that “Each State shall . . . establish” an Exchange. It directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish an Exchange in states that do not. It offers health insurance subsidies to certain taxpayers who enroll in a qualified health plan “through an Exchange established by the State under Section 1311.” Finally, the PPACA exempts employers from its “free-rider penalty,” and exempts millions of individual taxpayers from its individual-mandate penalties, if their states opt not to establish an Exchange. The language of the statute is clear, consistent, and unambiguous.

Nevertheless, shortly after legal scholars brought this feature of the law to the public’s attention in 2011, the Internal Revenue Service proposed a rule that would issue those subsidies – and impose the resulting taxes – through federal Exchanges as well as state-established Exchanges. Congressional Budget Office estimates indicate that issuing subsidies in the 34 states that have refused to establish Exchanges would cost taxpayers roughly $700 billion in the first 10 years. The president is literally threatening to tax, borrow, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars, without congressional authorization, and indeed in violation of the express language of his own health care law.

The IRS proposed this rule with no apparent regard for the clear language of the statute. Despite public criticism and objections during the notice-and-comment period, the agency finalized its proposed rule in May 2012 yet cited neither any provision of the PPACA nor any element of the legislative history in support of its “interpretation” of the law.

You will want to read the entire testimony. Cannon concludes with a strong warning:

The concerns I share with you today are not borne of partisanship. Though I have worked for Republicans, I am not a Republican, for reasons that Democrats on this committee can readily appreciate. I am acutely aware of the last Republican president’s failures to execute the laws faithfully. In 2008, though I did not support him, I preferred the Democratic presidential candidate to the Republican candidate in part because he promised to curb such abuses by the executive. I have praised President Obama for doing more than even many libertarians to celebrate the gains in equality and freedom our nation has secured for women, for African-Americans, for gays, and for lesbians.

This president’s failure – or any president’s failure – to honor his constitutional duty to execute the laws faithfully is not a partisan issue. The fact that presidents from both parties violate this duty is cause not for solace. It is cause for even greater alarm, because it guarantees that presidents from both parties will replicate and even surpass the abuses of their predecessors as payback for past injustices. The result is that democracy and freedom will suffer no matter who occupies the Oval Office.

The Obama regime is arguing that it is nonsensical to read literally the law as it is written.

That’s utterly absurd.

What do laws mean if they can be rewritten at will by the President? Why must we obey laws if the President does not? Since when are we to obey what democrats say they intended rather than what is codified in a law they wrote?

Why could Obama not suspend the 2nd Amendment if he wakes up one day and decides on it? What if Obama wakes up one day and claims the First Amendment means he can shut down the press because that’s how he interprets it?

Who’s going to stop him?

Obama does think he is king and this country is edging closer and closer to that becoming a reality.

Here is an example of a “nonsensical” understanding of the law according to Obama:

The Obama administration last week delayed for a second time the part of the Affordable Care Act that requires large employers to provide health coverage or pay fines.

The “employer mandate” was supposed to take effect in January. But now, mid-size firms of 50 to 99 employees do not have to comply until 2016, and the requirements will be phased in for employers of 100 or more full-time workers.

Mr. Lee, Utah Republican, told Fox News Sunday that if Mr. Obama can change the law through rules from the Treasury, “then there’s almost no limit to his authority.”

Fox host Chris Wallace said the text of the law is quite clear, stating the mandate “shall apply to months beginning after Dec. 31, 2013.”

Of course, yes, the damn law was written to take effect on January 1, 2014.  But Obama CHANGED the law that he swore as part of his oath of office to “faithfully execute.”

Obama decided that “execute” means “kill.”  And of course it’s “nonsensical” for him to interpret “execute” as “to faithfully carry out.”  Because he is MURDERING the law.  He has now changed his OWN ObamaCare law 29 times – and these being MAJOR changes that Congress DID NOT PASS.

We know that Barack Obama is the very worst possible kind of dishonest hypocrite without shame, integrity, honor, decency or virtue of any kind.  And we know that even the top liberal legal scholars are now calling him an outright fascist who has fundamentally transformed our democracy into something that will necessarily degenerate into totalitarianism in the days just before the beast comes.

What is going on in Ukraine – as the people rise up against a dictatorial president who is trying to force them to become less like a democracy and more like a Russian fascist dictatorship – ought to be happening here.

Because what Barack Obama is doing is truly evil.  And the crisis is that the Democrat Party that has become truly evil and the Democrat voters who are truly evil hypocritically protect him when they would be screaming in the streets if Bush had done anything even remotely close to what Obama has done.
