CHILLING THINGS TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA – PART THREE

It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who things the current president of the United States has as his number one goal to destroy this country as we know it.

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

The following is part three of a series on chilling things taking place in America.

When setting up the government of the United States, our Founding Fathers established three co-equal branches of government so that no one person or group of people would have absolute power. The Founding Fathers also implemented a system of “checks and balances” whereby the three co-equal branches of government (legislative, administrative, and judicial) would oversee the passage of laws and the enforcement of laws.

Since assuming the office of the presidency, President Barak Obama has repeatedly taken it upon himself to declare law, eliminate law, and change law without going through Congress as required by the U.S. Constitution. He took it upon himself to instruct the Department of Justice to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act and what immigration laws he wanted ignored and which ones to obey, among others.

Obama also bypassed Congress and decided to change the federal welfare laws in an obvious attempt to gather votes from America’s low-income sector. He took action to completely gut the work requirement from the Welfare Reform Act that was passed in 1996 and signed into law by former president Bill Clinton.

In his continuation to act without the consent of Congress, without Congressional approval or court order, Obama took it upon himself to release millions of dollars in money and weapons including a number of fighter jets to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. You will recall that Congress froze all federal aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government because of their terrorist activities and inhumane treatment of the Egyptian people. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called the United States an enemy like Israel that needs to be destroyed. Does this not constitute treason according to the U.S. Constitution?

In addition to the above, Obama has used a number of executive orders that would allow him to take over every form of communication, banking, and commerce in the declaration of an alleged national emergency. Also, Internet regulations have been established that would give Obama complete control of the Internet if he wanted it.

President Obama has continuously acted like he is above the law and has indicated if the leaders of Congress want to have a vote on whether or not what he is doing is illegal, they can have the vote. Then he will veto that vote because he feels that what he is doing is the right thing to do. He has never expressed that what he is doing is illegal or not, he simply says it’s the right thing to do. Well, excuse me, Mr. President, you cannot act because you think your actions are the right things to do. Barak Obama has become a dictator and the American people plus the media are allowing him to do it.

The current president has issued unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then he dares an equal branch of government to vote on the legality of his orders, so he can veto it. There was no vote in Congress, no consultation with the House and Senate, no law that gave him the authority; he just did it.

A dictator is a ruler who is not effectively restricted by a constitution, laws, recognized opposition, etc. That definition clearly defines the current president as a dictator, something our Founding Fathers too many steps to avoid. The current president has grown so bold that he even boasts of his supreme authority and defiance of Congress.

And guess what? The American people and the American media are allowing him to get away with it. The average person on the street doesn’t realize how much things have changed since Obama took over as president. Because their individual life hasn’t changed all that much, they’re not aware of what is taking place. The Obama-zombies love and worship him to the point that anything he does is okay with them even though it violates the constitution. Except for a small percentage, the media will not hold him accountable for his actions because they’re in the tank for him.

Our Founding Fathers set up a government designed to prevent the United States from becoming a totalitarian dictatorship. Unfortunately that’s just what we’ve become. And, you know something? The American people have allowed it. And only the American people can put a stop to it. The question is, “Will we?”

CHILLING THINGS TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA – PART TWO

Last week I posted an article, the first one in weeks, regarding the chilling things that current president, Barak Obama, is doing in his efforts to destroy the United States of America. Today, I am authoring another article illustrating yet another example of the overt actions this president is utilizing to destroy our great country.

I have written on many occasions about the right that the citizens of the United States have to criticize and hold their government officials accountable. If you don’t like the government, you have every right to say you don’t like it without fear of reprisal. Yes, without fear of reprisal until recently, that is.

Remember “Joe, the Plumber?” During the 2008 presidential campaign, Joe asked candidate Obama a rather tough question regarding the candidate’s stand on re-distribution of wealth where the candidate actually indicated that one of his goals as president would be to re-distribute wealth away from the nation’s wealthiest to the middle and lower classes.

This question was an embarrassment to candidate Obama and angered Obama supporters. On Obama supporter, a city clerk in Cleveland, Ohio, decided to see what information she could unearth about ole Joe and publicize it. As it turned out, Joe had some skeletons in his closet that the “tolerant left” jumped upon in their efforts to destroy Joe.  As recently as July 2015, Huffington Post ran a hit piece on Joe, the Plumber, calling him abysmally ignorant and suffocatingly arrogant.

Now, Joe was not picked up in the middle of the night, taken to a gulag and never heard from again; but he was certainly denigrated. You may say that Joe was a fake and a fraud, but did he deserve what the city clerk in Cleveland did to him? Absolutely not! If this had been a Democrat asking a touch question of a Republican candidate, that Democrat would have received many accolades from the left.

In addition to the defaming of Joe, the Plumber, the current president has asked his supporters to listen carefully and take note of any criticisms his detractors may come up with. While the current president didn’t go so far as to ask his supporters to send him the names and the contact information of those folks, we’re headed down that road.

After having expressed these chilling things to a liberal Obama supporting friend over dinner several years ago, she promptly replied that this wasn’t going to happen because Obama was so wonderful that he wouldn’t do anything such as what I was saying. In other words, anything Obama says and does is wonderful and shouldn’t be questioned. I have news for this friend. The government of the United States of America was set up so that our elected officials are constantly held accountable for their actions.

Since the 2008 incident involving Joe, the Plumber, many attempts have been made and are currently being made by the “tolerant left” to destroy those who don’t agree with their political philosophies. In fact, things have developed since Obama assumed the presidency that are so much worse that I’m feeling the oppressiveness of this administration and the “tolerant left,” and I’m not the only one. Furthermore, the left has been at work eroding our freedoms at a pace so gradual that we’re not even aware of what’s taking place until we think back a decade or so.

In today’s politically correct world created by the “tolerant left,” you can be damaged by making the statement that you believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman or that you believe that one should use the restroom of their original gender.

There was a post on my personal Facebook page indicating that the United States of America is a country of approximately 320 million people and still we can’t come up with a better presidential election ticket than Clinton vs. Trump. At a time when we need good leadership to take us back to the principles upon which this country was founded, we don’t have it. So, what’s in our future? Sadly, I don’t know.

CHILLING THINGS TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA – PART ONE

Chilling things are taking place in the United States of America. As most of us go about our daily lives, most of us are oblivious to the sinister things that have been foisted upon us by the Obama administration and the administration’s band of liberal/progressive henchmen.

We’re losing our freedoms little by little. The factors that separate our great nation from the rest of the countries on the planet including our economy based on the principles of capitalism and the free market plus our legal system based on the Ten Commandments and Judeo-Christian principles, are gradually being eroded. This erosion has been taking place for decades and you could probably say that it dates back to former president Woodrow Wilson. Furthermore, the erosion has led to the America voters electing a president twice who is diametrically opposite to the principles of a free market and Judeo-Christian values.

This article is part one of a series in which I intend to outline areas where we’ve lost our freedoms and have become like many socialist/communist countries. Sure, the average person on the street probably is not aware just how bad things have gotten in this nation except for the fact that he or she is paying much, much more for healthcare and getting less.

The first area I’m going to discuss is climate change. A few weeks ago I read a blurb on Facebook regarding how various state Attorney Generals were planning to prosecute businesses and people who didn’t adhere to the left’s proclamation on man-made climate change. I thought it was either a joke or something very extreme. I just couldn’t imagine there being any truth to this. But it looks like I was wrong. This story has grown some legs.

In an article on dailysignal.com by Hans von Spakovsky, the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Claude E. Walker, has served a subpoena on the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) demanding documents related to CEI’s research on global climate change. Walker is part of a network of state Attorney Generals who have formed a grand inquisition to go after those they claim have lied about climate change, a contentious and unproven scientific theory.

CEI is a non-profit public policy institute that researches and publishes studies and reports on issues it believes are essential for entrepreneurship, innovation, and prosperity to flourish. It is dedicated to the principles of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty. CEI is well known for its high-quality, objective research on energy and climate issues, which clearly has made it a target of Walker.

The 14 page subpoena says that Inquisitor Walker is investigating ExxonMobil for “misrepresenting its knowledge of the likelihood that its products and activities have contributed to and are continuing to contribute to climate change in order to defraud the government and consumers.” This supposedly violates the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, aka RICO.

The subpoena demands that CEI turn over all documents, communications, statements, emails, op-eds, speeches, advertisements, letters to the editor, research, reports, studies, and memoranda of any kind, including drafts, that refer to climate change, greenhouse gases, carbon tax, climate science, and the like, in any way related to ExxonMobil or the products sold by or activities carried out by ExxonMobil that directly impact climate change, covering the period between 1/1/97 and 1/1/2007.

Walker is using a criminal statute designed to go after major drug dealers and mob organizations to go after a company that produces the gasoline and diesel fuel that Americans and the rest of the world use in their cars, trucks, boats, lawnmowers, and other equipment of every kind.

Also, ExxonMobil and CEI are being targeted for having taken what these legal barons consider the wrong side of a scientific theory that is being actively debated and questioned. The fact that ExxonMobil produces a relatively cheap, reliable energy source that helps power our world, but is disfavored by progressives and their political representatives like Walker seems to be what the company is really guilty of, according to dailysignal.com.

The dailysignal.com article goes on to indicate that what’s actually going on here appears to be an effort to intimidate, harass, frighten, and possibly imprison or fine anyone who Walker and his henchmen think is saying the wrong thing and who is standing in the way when it comes to forcing the rest of us to switch to politically correct and unreliable energy sources like wind and solar.

According to CEI General Counsel, Sam Kazman, the investigation is intended to silence and chill any opposition. It is disgraceful and contemptible behavior by public officials who are willing to exploit their power to achieve ideological ends. It is an affront to our First Amendment rights of free speech and association. What is happening to ExxonMobil and to CEI is persecution. It is an affront to free speech and vigorous scientific debate.

Because ExxonMobil is generally not well liked by the general public, the general public is probably not going to sit up and take notice of something like this. None-the-less, this is persecution of a private entity that the government doesn’t like, even though ExxonMobil and CEI is not doing anything illegal. They simply represent big business/big oil.

We’re haven’t reached the point where individuals who disagree with the government are rounded up in the middle of the night and taken to a gulag to be executed and/or tortured. But make no bones about it, we’re travelling in that direction. If we don’t recognize this type of behavior by the government for what it is, we’re going to find ourselves farther down that road where turning back may be impossible.
