Tyranny on the Hill

Tyranny on the Hill

Congress should be relieved of all its duties and sent home. Their inability to constrain a wayward President, who mocks them every chance he gets, is reason enough to show them the door. Sixty eight months ago Barack Obama promised hope and change to a populous who believed his demagoguery. Their expectations have fallen to new lows because promises made were not promises kept. Without any delay the President began refabricating every institution and tradition which allowed America to become the power house it is. Following the Tyrant’s Handbook Obama has moved along the boundary between Democracy and tyranny preparing the country for his new vision of America. In the President’s view borders are irrelevant as noted by his ambivalence to protect them. Allowing millions to enter the country, without legitimate authority to do so, reeks of his disdain for the curbs the Constitution places on him. Nevertheless Obama has used every agency of government to force his will on American citizenry. His nonstop efforts to involve the Administration in the complexities of American businesses have driven many companies to seek greener fields overseas. Utilizing the Internal Revenue Service, as a belligerent force to threaten his political foes, has the obnoxious scent of Nixonian style politics. Worse when the bread crumbs of deceit lead directly to the White House Obama acts like a good tyrant and hides behind the rants of others. This is exemplified by each and every scandal that has touched his Administration. Important to a tyrant are the changes he leaves behind as his successive edicts take hold. For Obama his management of America’s deterioration will be a legacy no President previously could claim. Congress’s inaction, allowing Obama a free reign, antithetically makes them equally as guilty of undermining America as the President. Dictating national policy by use of Executive Orders runs counter to the foundations of Democracy. Worse, standing down as these Orders take hold, displays an ineffectual legislative branch whose unwritten signature stands next that of the President’s. Tyranny has moved into to every jurisdiction in the nation routed through Washington D.C. Americans have been asleep as their last few rights are being swallowed by a government ravenous to control them. When the last vestiges of Democracy finally fade into the night Americans will remember the good old days when they had the right to vote and speak their minds openly.

Impeachment: Political Theater or Moral Imperative

Impeachment: Political Theater or Moral Imperative

Constitutional crises are extremely rare. When one arises the entire nation becomes embroiled in the substance of the problem as it moves through its various machinations. Two contentious issues have come to the forefront challenging the very foundations of our society. President Obama has used his pen to circumvent Congress to bring his personal agenda into fruition. With the stroke of his writing instrument Obamacare has been remodeled into a format not reflective of the law passed in March of 2010. Dramatically more perverse the President has altered immigration laws which have caused a flood of illegals to inundate our southern borders. Ramifications of both actions are slowly filtering throughout the very structure of this nation. For the former access to health care is diminished, for the latter a humanitarian crisis of proportions so great it challenges the sensibilities of a rational mind. Each of the three branches of government has their assigned roles empowered by a document that is keen on bringing balance and order to the nation. Unfortunately the present occupant of the Oval Office uses the Constitution as a doormat instead of a roadmap. President Obama has thrown down the gauntlet challenging those in the legislative halls of Washington D.C. to restrict his anti-constitutional behavior through impeachment proceedings. He may be granted his wish.

Conservatives have taken a beating over the last six years as progressives sought to undermine every institution, industry and tradition that made this nation strong. The scandal plagued White House has now moved into political territory so devastating it cries out to be checked immediately. Rumors of a pending Executive Order that may provide amnesty to 5 million illegals has percolated throughout the dark corridors of Congress and beyond. Obama may be playing with political dynamite if he goes forward with this scheme. Discussion of impeachment has moved from a whisper to a hum as Republicans continue to deny the inevitable. On July 30th the House of Representatives voted to sue the President for his unlawful use of Executive Orders. The vote was along party lines suggesting the Democrats continue to deny the President is overstepping his authority. A lawsuit, as proposed by the House, could take an extended time period to resolve, potentially ending up on the doorstep of the Supreme Court. Is this merely a delaying tactic in preparation for the trial of President Obama?

Impeachment of the President and other select officials is allowed under Article II Section 4 of the Constitution. During the period this section was written the Founders wanted a means to remove those who exceeded their authority, as established in this great document. In the alternative in the event a high official was falsely accused this section also provided a means for vindication. President Obama has willfully chosen to circumvent Congress by utilizing the privilege of Executive Order. The manner in which he has used this power is in question.
Nullification of laws and or treading on others has brought this presidency to a crossroad in history requiring hard choices Congress has avoided so far. Democrats believe Articles of Impeachment would be political theater to enhance the strengths of a party they distrust. Perspectives of many in the opposing party see impeachment as a moral imperative, nothing less. At this juncture Congress has not displayed its willingness to go down a path only two prior presidents have traveled. Looking forward the outcome of November’s election may determine the fate of a presidency which started with hope and change but may end in disenchantment and despair.

The Shadow Presidency

23 Jul

The Shadow Presidency

Presidents are elected to lead not hide in the shadows only to appear when the World is on the brink. Tensions amongst the nations are bordering on reintroduction of the Cold War, which came to a quiet end during the Reagan years. In recent days two events have occurred which could ignite into regional conflicts if their flames are not contained. Israel launched an aggressive raid on the Gaza Strip in response to persistent missile attacks from this location. Hamas’ aggression has been relentless placing Israeli cities under a dome of hysteria without reprieve. International outrage, as usual, is being levied against the Jewish State though they did not initiate the aggression. President Obama briefly displayed his concern by publically denouncing the high level of causalities in Palestinian territories, yet paying lip service to Israel’s right of self-defense. Displaying minimal leadership in this unfolding catastrophe his press release stated categorically that Israel should return to the 2012 peace plan. Mr. President, Israel was following this purported plan, Hamas wasn’t. As the elected head of our nation the President showed the World for the nth time he is a feckless leader detached from reality.

On a secondary front the downing of a passenger jet over the Ukraine killing 298 people shocked the conscience of many nations, except for one headed by a shadow. In the most shallow terms President Obama promised retribution to those who perpetrated this tragedy, unfortunately leaving out the means to achieve this end. Surprisingly Samantha Power, our United Nations Ambassador, had the effervescence to do what her boss would not take the game to the Russians. In biting tones her words accused pro-Russian forces of this atrocity and laid out potential sanctions the United States could bring to bear. Leading from behind has been the present Administration’s method of managing World crises. With maximum rhetoric and minimal substance Obama’s speeches have conveyed little to resolve the newest wars amongst nations.

Perhaps ghost President would be a better appellation for Obama. Allowing secondary officials to perform primary Executive functions is not a power delegated in the Constitution. House committees are still requesting where the President was during the night of the Benghazi raid. In the IRS scandal the President’s minions claim Obama was first notified of the problem through media sources. We now know the veracity of that notation is untrue. Four year election cycles are done for a reason, to bring competence and confidence to the nation’s highest office. During the last 2 cycles the electorate received much less than they expected. Harsh times are ahead in the event leadership does not emerged from the corridors of power in the Capital. One thing for certain the paralysis in the White House will not be cured until the end of the present four year cycle.

Obama’s Pearl Harbor: Alien Invasion

America has a virtual President who casts an inconsequential shadow on a nation starving for leadership. Invasion USA is now taking place on our southern border with the blessings of Barack Obama. Word has spread throughout Central America, Mexico and elsewhere that American immigration laws are no longer enforced. To support this thesis; deportations are down, border patrols have been diminished, prosecutions of illegals are on a downward slope and Obama has forgotten his oath to protect the borders. The egregious events surrounding Pearl Harbor may look pale when compared to the catastrophe playing out in the south. Illegals are introducing an array of diseases that could be disastrous when seeded within urban populations. Poverty and crime are an integral part of the baggage illegals bring with them as the government plants these people throughout the nation. Citizens are finally comprehending the breadth and depth of the illegal incursion. Protests in California, Illinois, Virginia and elsewhere have deterred large numbers of illegals from arriving in these jurisdictions. Yet immigration forces are plowing ahead with resettlement schemes which eventually may bring tens of thousands to a city near you.

President Obama ultimately wants a path to citizenship for the millions who have decided to make America their home. With gross disregard for established laws Obama continues to deride the Constitution utilizing Executive Orders to complete his endgame: reconfiguring our society. Ramifications of his edicts ripple across the country as the flood of the unwanted make their presence known. Since October of 2013 over three hundred thousand have transgressed our borders, a sub-segment of which are children. Obama has been successful in diverting the nation’s attention away from the border crisis by continuing to stir a dozen other scandals involving his participation. Requests for him to come to the southern border have been numerous. Most recently Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, made such a request. The President felt it was more important to attend a fundraiser than view the mess he created. Obama’s disconnect with reality has been the subject of much discussion in the media. Defenders of the Administration give Obama high marks for attempting to remake America. Opponents see him as an inept man who vantages himself through the miseries of others. The Hispanic invasion of the United States has succeeded. Unlike FDR who led us to victory in WWII President Obama drives the nation further into the hands of the invaders. For this he must be held accountable by the people and Congress. Now is the time people must cry out in one voice enough is enough and impeach the shadow living in the White House under false pretenses.

The Other Side of Immigration

10 Jul

The other side of Immigration

Societal changes occurring before our eyes have been orchestrated by an errant Executive branch that is piloting the metamorphosis of this nation. With little regard for outcomes of their actions lawlessness has been the prime ingredient fueling this scandal plagued Administration. Directly related to the President’s activities in office is a humanitarian crisis occurring at the southern border. A cataclysmic set of circumstances have been set in motion which can affect the entire country because of Obama’s dalliances with immigration. More than 300,000 people have transgressed the southern border since October 2013. Many children are in this mix from various Central American countries. From a historical perspective there have been no major upheavals in these nations recently. So why is there a mass exodus to America? Word has moved through the populations involved that once you set foot in this country there is a very good chance your feet will be cemented here. That is the Obama Administration will allow you to stay, permanently. To solidify their chances, of a positive reception, children en masse are being sent in waves with the hope their families could follow and be received with open arms too. Children are given different treatment under current law than their adult counterparts. Tonight Obama spoke from his dais in Texas concerning immigration, one of the major hubs of border incursions by illegals. His disingenuous speech was checkered with blame for those who came before him and a recalcitrant Republican Congress holding up his bloated request for money. Obama’s detached style of management was on display tonight when asked why he has not gone to the border as requested by Governor Rick Perry. He sidestepped the question as preparation was made for him to head towards his next fundraiser. Six years into his tenure as President, Obama’s manipulation of immigration policy, through Executive Orders, has intensified border issues. Contrary to the President’s speech tonight deportations are down, new immigrants are being released quickly into our cities and he has shown no interest in strengthening border protections. Obama blames the Republican Congress for the immigration travesty now unfolding. Yet the Democrats controlled both the House and Senate from 2008 to 2010 and did not pass comprehensive reforms. Lie after lie and misrepresentation after misrepresentation President Obama has no answers to complex problems. He offers more of the same rhetorical nonsense, which is his trademark. The President faces a lawsuit for misuse of Executive Orders and possible impeachment after the election for sundry reasons. Maybe just maybe he could show a little leadership and lead the nation out of the present border catastrophe before his legal problems catch up with him. Unfortunately he is still searching for ways to blame others for his ineptitudes and inefficiencies.

What is Wrong with Maryland

7 Jul

What is wrong with Maryland

Perhaps the title should be rephrased to what is right about Maryland. Nearly six million people inhabit the Free State as it was nicknamed after slavery was outlawed in 1864. Yet this nickname has taken on an entirely new meaning. Blessed by this State’s endemic Democrat government the word free has taken on an entirely new meaning. Maryland Government has a clear agenda to deprecate the entrepreneurial sector to vantage the entitlement class. Illegal is no longer a term permitted to be spoken by the bluest of blue within the confines of this State. Once removed from the illegal category “immigrants” can dip into a vast amount of cash being offered to them on the proverbial silver platter by Maryland’s left of the left government. Trumped up taxes, levies, fees and move support several million people who have decided it is better to sit on their backsides than work a job. Why are O’Malley and his crew so intent on giving away your money? Votes! Freebies to the indolent, lazy and sloths among us keep the support flowing for those who want to move up the food chain with a blue ring on his or her finger. O’Malley’s policies extort money from anyone who has a business or receives a paycheck. State coffers are starved for these funds. So where do all these funds end up?

An intricate system of entitlement fund delivery has been created in the Free State. This system is purposely complex to fool the most ardent person who seeks knowledge of it. Checks are flying out the doors of Maryland Administrative offices faster than the cash coming in to support the State’s socialist activities. Have a child out of wedlock in Maryland get a check. Have several children and receive multiple checks. Take a trip to your local entitlement office. They are located conveniently throughout the state. The social workers in these offices are begging for business and will welcome you with open arms. As you sit before one of them he or she will pull out a menu of giveaways and ask what your needs are. With minimal information to support your state of poverty these social workers are ready to write checks. Energy assistance, food stamps, housing supplements, cell bills, cable support and a dozen more freebies are waiting for you. Would you like to go to school? No problem with minimal qualifications or check for citizen status the money will be forthcoming the next day. Has your child been misdiagnosed with a chronic medical condition, there is a very good chance Maryland will send you a check. Perhaps you are from Baltimore City. Seventy percent of households there are single parent homes or so the government believes. Stay unmarried, but cohabitate, Maryland will send you two checks.

Health professionals relate multiple stories of patients on Medical Assistance, now Obamacare, who come to their offices driving Range Rovers, Mercedes and BMWs. Many of these patients live in the equivalent neighborhoods their automobiles reflect. Governor O’Malley and his minions could very easily compare the Medical Assistance assignments to the Motor Vehicle master list to uncover this specific fraud. He has chosen not to which in a sense sends a signal to these thieves that it is okay to steal from the taxpayer since politicians do it all the time.

Start a business in Maryland and the Comptroller’s office becomes your best friend. Do they lend you money to start and or stay in business? No. Do they provide guidance for your business to improve its function? No. Instead they are useless dolts commandeering your money in the form of levies, licensing fees, surcharges, taxes and various penalties from the outset. Recently a poll of Marylanders suggests that 47% of its residents would leave if circumstances would permit. This number may reflect the feelings of business owners as well.
To answer the question what is wrong with Maryland: government overreach, high taxes, extensive number of violent crimes and a political cast of thousands using its residents as pawns are but a few of the problems legal residents face. Maryland is on its way down. With a slight push many of its jurisdictions could go over the edge. As O’Malley moves off the stage he leaves behind a fiscal disaster so trenchant that Maryland will be bleeding economically for the next decade. Perhaps the electorate will vote “right” next time.
