Obama Tries To Bypass Congress Once More…

It was just a week ago when Harry Reid and other Democrats told Obama to bypass Congress and hike the debt limit himself:

“In the event that Republicans make good on their threat by failing to act, or by moving unilaterally to pass a debt limit extension only as part of an unbalanced or unreasonable legislation, we believe you must be willing to take any lawful steps to ensure that America does not break its promises and trigger a global economic crisis — without congressional approval, if necessary,”

Nevermind the fact that no one in Congress, nor Congress itself, can grant such power. The law states only Congress can raise the debt limit. But Reid would have Obama rule his subjects as a King would.

As we all know with our majesty, he doesn’t take too much prodding to rule like a king.

The Obama administration is attempting to bypass Congress and force publicly-traded companies to reveal their political donations through regulation.

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Corporate Finance has begun the steps necessary to create a regulation that would in many ways mirror the DISCLOSE Act — a bill Senate Democrats have failed to pass through Congress.

Created in reaction to the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court ruling that said corporations and unions could not have limits placed on their political expenditures, the Senate bill would require political organizations to publicly name their donors and the amounts they give.

The SEC regulation would do the reverse — force companies to disclose the political groups they support — and have a similar effect.

“The Division [of Corporate Finance] is considering whether to recommend that the Commission issue a proposed rule to require that public companies provide disclosure to shareholders regarding the use of corporate resources for political activities,” reads the proposal, as reported to the president’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Reacting to news that the SEC is considering adopting a similar regulation without Congress, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell condemned the action as a “direct assault” on the First Amendment.

And you can bet that when he doesn’t get his way on his assault of the 2nd Amendment he will try to get it done by regulations once more. Here is Senator Rand Paul discussing just that very thing:

Curt served in the Marine Corps for four years and has been a law enforcement officer in Los Angeles for the last 24 years.

    A combination of things happened that Obama has taken advantage of.
    Congress abdicated their Constitutional responsibilities to legislate.
    Obama usurped both Congress and the Judiciary’s roles and was given a pass every time.
    That being the pattern, why should Obama stop now?

    Curt,

    But Reid would have Obama rule his subjects as a King would.

    It is safe to assume that the INAUGURATION ceremony will be an embarrassment to half the country.

    We can predict a meticulously orchestrated anointing to feed the masses’ yearning for glamour, pomp and circumstance. We can expect a sea of perfectly lined-up bodies, forming the audience, reminiscent of a certain ’40s dictatorship, fawningly applauding the crowning of their king.

    It will be shameful and unlike his pathetic address in front of columns four years ago, this service of worship and veneration will backfire.

    @Nan G: #1,

    You’re right he won’t. However, he cannot and will not be able to do anything to dampen the impact of the Ponzi bubble that is about to burst.

    His apologist will blame everyone else including all who came before him, but it won’t be hard to lay this depression at his feet. Yes Bush didn’t help, but Congress for 20 years along with the monstrous and ill-timed Obamacare, were driving forces which ignored realities. Now we are about to suffer the consequences.

    What concerns me is that while all of this is going on the Rank and File of the RNC are sitting back and hiding while they discuss how to make themselves look good by caving to the Dems.

    @Nan G: Just another part of the variation of the Cloward-Piven “overload” strategy to keep the country in perpetual turmoil. Just today I was called by a GOP fund raiser who was not so curtly told to tell our spineless repubs to pound sand until they secured a lot more grit than demonstrated so far. The beltway faction of the GOP couldn’t stand Romney (opinion); must not have been able to accept that he might have been able to make progress which would have tended to obsolete their self-assumed importance in the process.

    For we the people to be strong, the obamination must follow the Clinton lead in taking on the 2nd Amendment. Bring on the fight and maybe the Chicagostan 500+ KIAs per year will mean something to the rest of us; they surely mean nothing to the Cloward-Piven, Marxist Communist now running the demorat party. Just think, without the dumbed-down low information voters (sheepeople), the demorats would be just an effete party of self-absorbed, self-proclained pseudo, wannabe intellectuals.

    obama has been testing and pushing the envelope. However when it came to the 2 nd amendment I believe that it is the straw that broke the camel’s back. So I am going to guess that republicans and some democrats are finally going to grow a pair and stop the tyranny. If not, we will fall completely under the rule of this despot .

    Glenn Beck is going to have a mock inauguration during obama’s inauguration, so we can watch that instead. Glenn is on the Dish Network, channel 212. It costs $5 per month, but they have a two week free trial.

    I’m guessing that if we listed all of the LEGAL things obama has done, compared to the ILLEGAL things he has done, the ILLEGAL list would be much longer. It’s not totally his fault. He just spent too much time in Chicago.

    This would-be king should have included Aesop in his early readings instead of Marx – if he really read much at all between tokes.

    He would have read the fable about Killing The Golden Goose. When the goose is dead, there are no eggs. When the job creators are dead, there are no jobs. The taking and redistributing which Obama has been hell-bent on enforcing will not only kill Aesop’s golden goose, but will also crack the egg onto the dirt.

    2013 will bring proof that stoking hate and jealousy on top of fear mongering, all-the-while redistributing, is no way to build a thriving economy.

    Bees, provided he isn’t insane like his father, I could back him. We’ll see how things shake out.

    Little bit of trivia: Richard’s hero JFK, had MLK illegally wiretapped. So the hero of many liberals vioalted his civil rights. Yet they call HIM a hero just because a communist loving loser murdererd him.

    IF we had but classically educated our own children in the USA they would have been familiar with many Aesop’s Fables.
    The Frogs Who Wanted a King comes to mind.
    Think of Obama raising the numbers of those dependent on the government largess up to 47% of the population as you read it.
    Think of Obama throwing various parts of his own constituencies under the bus, knowing they will vote for him again anyway as you read this.

    There were frogs which were in ditches and ponds at their liberty.
    They all together of one assent and of one will made a request to Jupiter that he would give them a king.
    And Jupiter began thereof to marvel.
    And Jupiter gave to them the heron for to be their king.
    And then the heron began to enter into the water and eat them one after another.
    And when the frogs saw that their king destroyed and ate them thus, they began tenderly to weep, saying in this manner to the god Jupiter, ‘Right high and right mighty god Jupiter, please thee to deliver us from the throat of this dragon and false tyrant which eateth us the one after another.’
    And he said to them, ‘The king which you have demanded shall be your master.
    For when men have that which men ought to have, they ought to be joyful and glad.
    And he that has liberty ought to keep it well, for nothing is better than liberty.

    Moral of the Story: Liberty should not be well sold for all the gold and silver of all the world.

    . . . .Obama throwing various parts of his own constituencies under the bus, knowing they will vote for him again anyway . . . .

    √ and √ – I’ve actually found him to be consistently ‘hateful’ toward the core of his supporters, just as I think people like Jackson and Sharpton are abusing the very people who look up to them. The MSM has much responsibility to take with this. I find Obama talks down insultingly to the pandering crowds. I just don’t understand the lack of insight. Human nature should be more intuitive than this.

    As I have mentioned before, pretend that our government has been infiltrated, with the intent of bringing it down. How would the infiltrators do it? Now, compare that to what is going on in our government. If you can’t figure out that the ones in charge now, want to bring our free USA down, then you are one of the frogs sitting in the pot being slowly cooked.

    …The big IRONY is that,
    Obama is helping guns to become more popular and sell faster than any other time in history.

    There are literally lines outside the local sheriff’s office of people getting their permits to purchase handguns and the rifles/shotguns are flying off the shelf faster than the dealers can get them in. Under Obama, the guns and ammo industry is experiencing a BOOM (no pun intended) and is one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

    Oh yeah, that’s some good irony… 😉

    hi,
    I think OBAMA is now feeling secure at this time, he doesn’t have to show he is the good guy anymore to any AMERICANS WHAT EVER THE PARTY, HE IS SHOWING HIS TRUE SELFISH SELF, TO ALL,
    and it will take more than that to lose his adoring followers, they ‘ll take any shit from him,
    he trained them to be his robots loyals,
    now can we know on what or who he will give his OATH, IF NOT THE BIBLE,
    AND WILL HIS FOLLOWERS WILL BELIEVE HIS WORDS?
    WHY DOES HE FEEL SO SECURE,
    HIS FOLLOWERS ARE STARTING A NEW PARTY SO TO KEEP HIM
    IN THE NEXT ELECTION

    So far, it appears Obama himself is the number promoter of gun sales in the USA in the past few weeks. Gun sales have skyrocketed recently. How ironic!!

    hi, good for you,
    now don’t leave out buying GOLD, I have a news paper printing that gold will become
    an investment of choice and opportunity over the next two years
    GOLD should rise from current $1689 an once to aproach the 2011 high price [ before she dropped then lower], that rise predicted later this year, before hitting the 2000 dollar in 2014, many have predicted it
    and it’s not UNREASONABLE FORECAST,

    Just a couple of weeks ago we were noticing how Obama was firing Generals and Admirals who were too militant for him.
    Now it has happened again.
    General James Mattis is being given the bum’s rush out of his job as commander of Central Command, and is being told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned,” reports veteran national security correspondent Thomas E. Ricks.

    Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way — not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran.

    For instance, regarding allowing Iran to become a nuclear power, this General kept saying, “And then what?”
    See, Obama is expected to pursue a diplomatic resolution to the Iranian nuclear program this year.

    Whenever a country is taken over, the generals are gotten rid of. obama is just getting rid of ours BEFORE he takes over, instead of after. That way it will be easier to control the military when he has HIS generals in charge ahead of time.

    I am reading something interesting for anyone who take some OPIOIDS, THAT IS THE GENERAL WORD FOR
    medication called different names, like CODEINE ANY PAIN KILLERS, ONE ALSO IS OXICODONE,
    HYDROMORPHONE, AND THE FENTANYL PATCH, PRESCRIBE FOR both active and chronic PAIN,
    A DAILY DOSE OF JUST 20 MILIGRAMS OF MORPHINE OR EQUIVALENT IS LINK TO
    21PER CENT OF INCREASED RISK OF ROAD TRAUMA
    THE CHANCE TO HAVING AN ACCIDENT ROSE TO 42 PER CENT with high doses described as 100 to 199 mg
    of the same, compare to low doses of same, they found the risk of having a motor vehicule collision
    was dependant on the dose of those opioids the individual was receiving
    even low doses of 20 to 50 milligrams per day where associated with an increase risk of accidents,
    these drugs impair alertness, they can make you sleepy, they make you less attentive,
    and can interfere with your motor responses, or the quickness which you respond to a threat,
    so on the whole they can impair your ability to drive,
    hundreads of thousands drive with those drugs painkillers, and the other behind would not know who is impair by it, so it’s a good thing to know on the road, yes,
    I thought it was interesting to be aware of when you drive,
    from both sides

    I’m retired now, but when I was a truck driver, I called myself an unprofessional truck driver, because I slept too much, took too much time to set in a decent restaurant and eat as healthy of meals as I could, and I drove the speed limit. I never took anything to make me stay awake, and the only thing I have to worry about is my cholesterol. Many people my age are on many different medications. One thing I would tell those who pushed themselves to make more money, was, “What good is all that extra money you make going to do you, if it’s your widow who gets to spend it?”

    that is a good way to end a debate,
    A while ago I was on the other POST; THE FALLACY OF WELFARE DRUG TESTING,
    and I was appawl by the link from anticsrocks on the gadgets testing the people asking for help,
    they said that gadget is not proof right many times,
    and they enumerate so many drug that will fail the test,
    even aleve pill make one fail the test and be refuse the help,
    check it up, even a truck driver would fail the test with one pill,
    in 1200 gadgets only 100 are secure, and the other are still used all over the USA
