15 Dreadfully Treasonous Words In Obama’s Speech





cicero on treason

Obama huffed… and he puffed… and he, well, blew nothing down.

He moved nothing forward.

All that our once-mighty leader’s State of the Union address showed was how completely irrelevant he’s become.

In fact, the president began by practically admitting that his legislation is dead on arrival because of how unpopular he is with Congress.

But the problem isn’t Congress… You see, if his agenda was popular with the voters, Congress would be falling all over itself to pass it. Congress follows the voters, and the voters don’t want any more of what Obama’s selling.

Heil, Obama!

During his first two years in office, Barack Obama controlled all three branches of government. He had unprecedented approval, and he used the opportunity to pass several highly unpopular bills. Unfortunately for the president, those bills have gone on to define his legacy.

The most destructive to middle class finances – and the president’s popularity – has been the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

You see, the Affordable Care Act was a gigantic political mistake. Obama allied himself with then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid to pass a bill with no Republican support whatsoever, rather than working toward a healthcare reform plan with bipartisan backing.

With that single act, Obama polarized the nation… and he hasn’t looked back since.

To this day, he continues to poison the body politic; and his newest plans – debuted to a national audience during the State of the Union – will cause even more division.

Since he can’t get anything done by working with others, Obama has decided to declare himself dictator and attempt to pass laws by executive order. His borderline treasonous words were, “Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation…that’s what I’m going to do.”

I can’t help but be reminded of Hitler’s transition from the elected Chancellor of Germany to complete dictator, ruling by decree. Yet even that comparison isn’t entirely accurate. In 1933, the Reichstag passed a law and gave Hitler his power. Obama has simply decided to usurp his.

A Year of Inaction

Thankfully, though, the United States today isn’t like Germany in 1933. And despite Obama’s attempts to rule by executive order, I believe we’re actually witnessing the opposite – the disintegration of his power.

He can command all he wants; but without Congress’ backing, I doubt that states and local governments are going to listen to the president. In fact, his irrelevance may actually be highlighted by his decrees. But he’s going to try anyway.

Obama’s first decree will attempt to fix global warming. Amusingly, while he was speaking about global warming, nearly half of the country was huddled together fighting the abnormal cold.

Suffice it to say that the president’s rhetoric is badly out of touch with reality.

He actually stood before Congress and had the mendacity to call Obamacare a success! Just to recount, the first goal of the Affordable Care Act was to increase insurance coverage… and more people have lost insurance than have gained it under Obamacare.

The second goal was to make insurance affordable… yet insurance is more unaffordable now than at any time in our history.

Still, Obama blithely encouraged the people who were watching the State of the Union to sign up. Not surprisingly, he failed to mention the myriad problems with healthcare.gov, including security and inaccuracy concerns that have been well documented.

His grand flourish was to call for a “year of action.”

But I predict that, one year from now, when we’re once again subjected to an excruciatingly painful address, no significant legislation will have been signed by Obama.

If he actually does try to rule by decree, the courts will annul his diktats, one by one, until anything without a basis in existing legislation will be ruled unconstitutional.

Because Obama doesn’t have the character, personality, and charisma to move the nation to action, 2014 is more likely to be remembered as the year of inaction. He is untrusted, untalented, and ineffective as Commander-in-Chief.

He will be even worse as Dictator-in-Chief.

Video: Democrat Senator To Obama: Your “Policies Are Wrong”





After the uninspiring 2014 State of the Union, several Democrats have revealed that they are not interested in Obama’s help in their re-election campaigns. The list includes Mark Begich (AK), Kay Hagan (NC), Mark Udall (CO), and Wisconsin Gubernatorial Candidate Mary Burke. Run, run, run as fast as you can. Don’t let him catch you; he’s the ObamaCare man.

GOP Establishment About To Be Caught With Pants Down

A story this past week was titled, “Why Joe Miller Could Pull off an Upset Against the GOP Establishment, Again.” An interview with the Tea Party Express also published last week noted, “Joe Miller Has a Proven History of Challenging the Status Quo and Taking on the GOP Establishment.”

Yet another story last week read, “The big upset could happen in Alaska.” Based on Facebook modeling to predict election outcomes, this article contended we are in a dead heat with incumbent Senator Mark Begich.

The authors of the study examined not simply the number of “Likes,” but the interaction each candidate’s page had, including the number of shares, comments, and engagement with others about it; in other words, factors reflecting the general excitement and involvement with the candidate and the issues he represents.

All this is extremely encouraging and mirrors what our campaign has been seeing on the ground as we meet with Alaskans in homes and businesses throughout the state. People are motivated and ready to take action because they realize the whole future of the country is at stake.

So high a price has been paid, by so many, to get us to this point in our nation’s history, it would defy the true American spirit to not respond to our country in this time of need.

Reminiscing on the Revolutionary War, John Adams determined about one-third of the citizens were for the Revolution, one-third were neutral, and one-third were against it. That one-third of freedom-loving Americans carried the day and brought the fruits of liberty to all. It was an upset victory against the Establishment for the ages, and so began the story of the greatest nation in the history of the world.

Like many of you, I became increasingly alarmed, shortly after Barack Obama was sworn in and he and the Democratically-controlled Congress sought to “fundamentally transform” America. People of common sense rose up in response to the $1 trillion stimulus bill, followed by the push to pass ObamaCare. These modern day patriots organized, educated their fellow citizens, and went to the polls. The result was Republicans regaining control of the House and ending the Democratic filibuster-proof Senate.

Republicans have had some success slowing down the transformation, but those who seek true reform are gravely outnumbered. Further, the Obama Administration has chosen time-and-again to disregard the Constitution and go around Congress. Harry Reid, Mark Begich, and the Democratic Senate have been complicit in these egregious acts by the Executive Branch by refusing to hold him accountable. Worse, they enabled even more abuse of executive power by voting for the “nuclear option,” ending the minority party’s right to filibuster when the President puts forward extreme nominees to hold positions of trust.

Further, this past week we had the third ranking member of the Senate, Chuck Schumer from New York, calling on Barack Obama to use the IRS to shut down the Tea Party. He truly has no shame or respect for Americans’ First Amendment rights to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly.

It is time to advance the work begun in 2010 and regain control of the Senate, retaking it with true reformers committed to a fundamental restoration of America, so the victory is worth the price.

Let’s begin to write the closing lines to this bizarre chapter in American history and write it in such a way the future generations will look back on what we did here with pride and thankfulness.
