    There’s ANOTHER remedy on hand that’s more than twice that old:

    SECESSION!

    I think you’re being way too kind, I think that that Obama is going into (even though I contend he’s ALREADY been there for some time now) “scorched earth” mode.

    Not ALL of the nation is sleeping: WHY do you think people have been arming themselves as never before during the Obama presidency?

    This latest move by Obama only all the more adds fuel to my oft-stated contention on this site that what needs to happen is that state governors, backed by their legislatures and state law-enforcement community, need to become the first line of defense against Obama’s unconstitutional diktats and make it clear to Obama that they will neither abide by nor submit to nor obey nor enforce those diktats in their states and to dare Obama to just TRY to make them comply. And in the process, force Obama to either have to back down or to have to escalate.

    And my contention is that if the mid-terms produce Republican control of both houses of Congress, the position of those governors for such action will be IMMENSELY strengthened, because I contend that if that election result happens on November 4, after that, even his fellow Democrats will no longer go to the mat for him or be willing to take a political bullet for him because their only obsession after that will be saving 2016 for their party, and if it means sacrificing Obama, I say that they will do it.

    Yes, it IS possible that Obama COULD choose to respond to such defiance by escalating with force and violence, but I say he WON’T, and again, I offer as Exhibit A for my belief the federal backdown at the Bundy ranch earlier this year. Obama right now is too obsessed with preserving his kingly lifestyle: I say he WON’T do anything to jeopardize it even if it means accepting public humiliation.

    I’m not going to go into an instant lather about this move by Obama, because the Constitution gives the president the right to sign any treaties he likes.

    As I’ve posted on this site before, Obama could sign a treaty with Russia ceding Alaska back to it if he wished. He could sign a treaty with some foreign power(s) which required the governments of all signatory nations – including the U.S. – to immediately confiscate from the citizenry their privately-held firearms if he liked (of course, many here will undoubtedly argue that he’s effectively ALREADY done that by signing that U.N. small-arms treaty).

    But until 2/3 of the U.S. Senate ratifies that treaty, its terms are not binding on the country.

    Now, let Obama try to IMPLEMENT the terms of a treaty he may have signed that has NOT been ratified by the Senate (like that U.N. small-arms treaty), and THAT’S when the stuff will hit the fan.

    So I don’t care WHAT kind of treaty Obama signs or doesn’t sign with Iran even if it is FLAGRANTLY unconstitutional, because the Constitution gives him that power. But in the absence of Senate ratification of any Iran treaty, let Obama try IMPLEMENTING it as though it WERE ratified by the Senate, and THAT’S when impeachment is called for.

    As I’ve said before on this on this site, the ironic thing is, if we have a real Ebola pandemic sweep across this nation, the people who will be most adversely affected will be Obama’s own voter base.

    History has shown that pandemics spread fastest and most virulently in crowded urban settings – and THAT’S where most of the Democrat voter base lives.

    Not of course that Obama cares: the only thing of value blacks EVER had to offer him was their VOTES, and he already GOT those, TWICE, and never needs their votes again because he’s not running for anything ever again, so black American now has absolutely NOTHING of value to offer him anymore, therefore it’s outlived its usefulness to him and can be sacrificed.

    Wait a minute, I take that back, there is ONE more thing of value black America has to offer Obama: to let itself be used as cannon fodder in a race war against white America. Again, this would result in the deaths of uncounted thousands of blacks, but again, Obama doesn’t care, they’re not HIS people and never HAVE been, HIS people are actually the rich white liberals who bankroll him.

    I think that waiting on Congress to put a stop to this madness is an exercise in futility, with the Senate currently controlled by Democrats, they will circle the wagons around Obama, so don’t expect any help from Congress on this matter.

    As I indicated in my 12:41pm and 12:47pm posts above (at least they’re above RIGHT NOW, by the end of the day who KNOWS where they’ll be on this thread), and this has been an oft-repeated contention of mine on this site for several months, it’s the individual states that need to be taking direct action, and if Obama tells them they can’t take such action, the states need to tell Obama to eff off and that they ARE going to take such action and to just TRY to stop them.

    Again, as I said in the aforementioned posts, if the Bundy ranch situation is indicative, and I think it IS, Obama may bluster and threaten, but in the end, I contend that’s ALL he will do if the states show their determination to take their own action to protect their citizenries no matter how much of a direct challenge it is to Obama.

  • [3] October 19, 2014 at 12:47pm

    Not to mention the fact that, given how much Obama has utterly alienated our military since Day 1 of his presidency, culminating this year in the Taliban-Bergdahl swap and his recent “latte salute”, if Obama WERE to order federal forces to crush such action, I think there’s a good chance he would find that our grunts will NOT obey such orders.

    As far as ordering the civilian federal workforce, like DHS employees, to do this work if the military refused: I have oft-argued on this site that for all their armament (weren’t the BLM employees facing off against the armed citizens who came out to the Bundy ranch to stand in solidarity with Cliven Bundy heavily armed, TOO?), civilian federal employees are NOT interchangeable with regular military personnel because the latter have been trained to operate in an environment where people are shooting back and trying to kill THEM, the former AREN’T, and I doubt they’re willing to martyr themselves for Obama (anymore than those BLM personnel at the Bundy ranch were willing to). I can’t imagine civilian federal employees being willing to shoot it out with the enraged armed citizens of Texas if Obama tried to use them in this way.

    If things continue the way they’re going, I argue that sooner or later, the individual states are going to be forced to take measures to protect themselves regardless of how much they may run afoul of the Obama administration.

    Individual state governors, backed by their legislatures and state law-enforcement community, may soon be forced to put their OWN travel bans in place and refuse to allow flights from various places to land in their state’s airports, or at the least prevent those on those flights from disembarking. As well as engage in many OTHER measures to minimize the chances of this contagion affecting their states.

    And if Obama tells them, no, you can’t do these things, this is a federal prerogative, the state governors should then tell him to go straight to hell, they CAN do these things and ARE doing these things, and that the only way Obama is going to stop them is at the point of federal bayonets, so now, Obama, YOUR move.

    A lot of you might riposte that this kind of reaction is EXACTLY what Obama would be hoping for because it would give him his “Reichstag fire” trigger to impose a national state of martial law, cancel the Constitution and all future elections, and make himself president-for-life, but frankly, I think he’d be too SCARED to escalate in this way even though it IS a direct challenge to his authority, and I cite as Exhibit A for my belief the federal backdown at the Bundy ranch in Nevada earlier this year.

    Well, so much for the Democrats’ best-laid plans to try to turn Texas blue in the next couple of years.

    With this decision, if it wasn’t foreordained ALREADY, Wendy Davis just lost ANY remaining chance to become the next governor of Texas.

    The Supreme Court decision means that the Justice Department can’t harass Texas now about using this law for the midterms. And if the DoJ TRIES, Governor Perry should tell Obama and Holder to go pound sand and that Texas WILL use this law for the midterms, and if the Obama administration doesn’t like it, the only way it’s going to stop Texas from moving forward on this law is at the point of federal bayonets, so Obama, now it’s YOUR move.

    loveoursoldiers, I realize that this is WAY off the subject of this particular thread, but since you have oft-expressed such an opinion on this site, I’m curious about something:

    do you STILL think that Obama is going to try to use or gin up some “Reichstag fire” event to try to seize totalitarian control over this country?

  • [7] October 18, 2014 at 8:13am

    The flip side of that is that if we DO have race riots all throughout this country as a result of Ferguson just before the midterms, while it MIGHT gin up a little the black vote, it could ALSO produce a TSUNAMI of p.o.’ed WHITE voters who show up at the polls to express their anger over the situation by punishing Obama through voting Republican and helping to deal the Democrat Party a big-time beatdown.

    OOPS!

    I MEANT to say:

    GIven that most mental health professionals in this COUNTRY are likely LIBERALS, I’d argue that THEY’RE even more screwed up in the head than you think that I am!

    In the movie, Burt Lancaster wasn’t actually planning to actually KILL President Jordan Lyman (played by Fredric March), just simply shunt him aside, and then he expected that the American people would agree with his action and thus that Lyman would be forced to resign to avoid being removed by impeachment.

    But if a real-life James Mattoon Scott arises in our military under the circumstances I’ve laid out above and actually DOES succeed in deposing Obama, I doubt very much that HE is going to show Obama the same mercy that Burt Lancaster was going to toward Fredric March.

    Nope, if our military rises up and deposes Obama, I expect that Obama and as many of his henchmen and handlers (like Joe Biden and even Hillary) as our military can get its hands on will be quickly marched to some undisclosed location and sent to their Maker once and for all.

    You replied at 2:41pm to dcgirl’s 2:38pm response to your 1:58pm post with:

    “I don’t think many people in the rest of the US would lift a finger if you folks did go….
    ….so, please, there’s the door….”.

    WE ACTUALLY AGREE ON SOMETHING!

    I have OFTEN stated on this site that if a second secession crisis DID happen, with a whole bunch of red states saying sayonara to Uncle Sam, that the wussified metrosexual libmales of blue-state America indeed would NOT lift a finger to try to stop it, and unlike in 1861, they DARN sure won’t actually TAKE UP ARMS to try to stop it. The vast majority of them are probably too drug-addled, or addled in many OTHER ways, to be able to effectively handle weapons ANYWAY.

    But if there IS a second secession crisis which starts with Texas, I’ll guarantee you that it won’t END with Texas, Texas can soon count on a whole PLETHORA of other red states following its lead right out of the Union, much as South Carolina’s secession on 12/20/1860 encouraged other southern states to quickly follow suit.

    Of course, once we’ve left the Union, we’re going to IMMEDIATELY expel your parasite class from our new nation back to you. Have fun working your fingers to the bone so that the parasite class you liberals have created can continue to avoid DOING ANY WORK AT ALL!

    By the way, I think RJJinGadsden’s 3:11pm response to you was right on the money: I think Obama WOULD come apart at the seams if faced with a serious secession effort.

    @ BadBob

    You replied to magenta44’s 1:41pm post with “So you are saying that we should have a military coup? Well that’s mighty democratic of you.”

    You can call me a tin-foil-hat-wearing *********, or WHATEVER your favorite pejorative is for conservatives, all you like for what I’m about to say, but there is little doubt in my mind that Obama is TRYING to create a pandemic in the military by sending our military forces to Africa against the Ebola virus (just WHAT does he expect SOLDIERS to do about said virus, SHOOT IT?), because I think he’s HOPING that most if not all of them will be infested THEMSELVES with Ebola, and then bring it back home and spread the contagion stateside among more in our military.

    From what I read all over the Internet, a substantial segment of our officer corps, and our grunts, are just about at the flash point. Such a pandemic could be the spark that finally sets them off.

    Because at some point, our military may well decide that it has to take action on its own to protect itself, and the first order of business in doing so is Obama’s immediate ouster from the Oval Office.

    And if this happens, as I’ve posted before on this, I could easily see a real-life Gen. James Mattoon Scott arising in our military, only this real-life Gen. Scott will accomplish what his movie counterpart played by Burt Lancaster in the film Seven Days in May was unable to: successfully deposing the president.

    WHOOPS!

    Correction needed to the above post.

    The last sentence of the first paragraph SHOULD have read:

    “And thus force Obama to have to choose between having to back down or having to escalate.”
