Obama’s disdain for Constitution threatens our Republic

Every now and then someone says it so well, it just needs to be read as is. So it is with this piece written by M. Northrup Buechner, Associate Professor of Economics at St. John’s University in New York, as featured in Forbes Magazine.

Finally, what we have all been witnessing and addressing is drawing the attention of the financial elites who read the pages of this prestigious magazine. It is my hope that Dr. Buechner retains his position at St. John’s University because the lawless Barack Obama will unleash his hounds to destroy him.

Let this be a message to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and all Republicans. Take heed, the future of our Constitutional Republic lies in your hands — and cowardice and failure are not an option.

Here’s a small excerpt:

The shocking fact is that our whole system of representative government depends on it being led by an individual who believes in it; who thinks it is valuable; who believes that a government dedicated to the protection of individual rights is a noble ideal. What if he does not?

Mr. Obama is moving our government away from its traditional system of checks and balances and toward the one-man-rule that dominates third world countries. He has said that he wants a fair country—implying that, as it stands, the United States is not a fair country—an unprecedented calumny committed against a country by its own leader.

What country does he think is more fair than the United States? He has three long years left in which to turn us into a fair country. Where does he intend to take us?

That has been my statement now for a couple months. He did say the Country needs to move forward. He just didn’t say which way was forward did he. Or no one asked him which way the country needs to go. IMO

This Fascist Ruler just regurgitated the FORWARD catch word used by Lenin, and Mao. Even his Logo and fake Seal of Presidency he placed on the campaign podium were indicators of his madness. You look into his eyes-is that confidence or an imbecilic self-infatuation staring out?

go back to the sixty’s, as people migrated out of public schools to private. As unions took over schools and teachers. Liberals moved in and wanted everyone to be equal.What they have is equal chaos, non educated, socialist indoctrination. Fast forward and you have a third generation on food stamps and feel entitled to them. Can’t tell you who the V.P. is much less what those two initials stand for.

and political correctness, was like a bear trap put in place…..it just means, “america last”. it means to put all others ahead of ourselves. in this method of brain washing, we have our hands tied. and we are also being told, that “self defense, is not an option”. this is why, even tho we have been seeing this comming, the media, and our leader, have been drumbing into our heads, that we must not defend ourselves.

But, we have fought. We’ve held the fort that is now being overrun by the opposition – coming over the walls standing on the shoulders of liberal judges overturning the people’s vote. They’ve used our tax money to plot against us, deceiving us while we worked long hours to get by on today’s inflated prices. Our Congress has for years passed law to hinder not help the people; all the time more and more law, while not keeping the law we already have. Our purpose has been to survive; their purpose has been to feather their own nests while sinking… Read more »

Leah, don’t dispair. Our founders knew this day was coming and have given us the tools that we need to rid ourselves of tyrants.

As the tread on the First Amendment wears through, it is the Second Amendment that follows; it is not an accident that they are in that order.

Essentially, we are repeating the days of the 1770’s in which successive intolerable acts were perpetrated upon an elective that made it abundantly clear that they did not wnt them

“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly, but the traitor moves against those within the gate freely. The traitor speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their arguments. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” Marcus… Read more »

I think the GOP is just Democrat Lite now. The Libertarians and Independents have been taken over by the Liberal Democrats already, and they are taking over the GOP, probably using the NSA and IRS, etc. I think it is too late for American now.

For those progressives here that say that Obama has the power to grant recess appointments and proudly post an excerpt from the Constitution to prove it, THREE courts have ruled that Congress was NOT in recess when he made those appointments. He made them DESPITE the fact that Congress came into session to NOT allow him to make recess appointments. In spite of this Obama made the appointments, in spite of Congress and in spite of the Constitution.

None of you get it. America has become a corporation for big banks,wall st, un-controls all the congress dems and republicans research for your selves. The trans pacific agreement that the adminstration is trying to join check it out you think things are bad now YouTube this for yourselves everything is in the open. 911 was such a lie it goes on and on. I’m scared that armed confrontation is going to come to get Amercia back to where the people rule not the police state that has been set-up by the bush thugs that run this country now

Fred

You STILL blaming Bush??? Get a grip. And you believe that 911 was an inside job? If you do, you have no credibility. Whatsoever. If you have any intelligence at all check out the article in popular mechanics and popular science about it. They investigated it thoroughly, and found nothing. Even Clinton said it was done by 19 saudi arabs. Nobody else.

The only solution is not voting for either of the two political parties. When Republican politicians realize that they are losing their constituents in droves, then, and only then will they change their current trajectory.

John King

Joseph, Though what you have said may seem to be the right way to make these political parties listen to there constituents, it will do just the opposite if we as Americans do not vote them out during the up coming elections. They win by default. what the American people need to do is keep calling the Demarcates and reminding them that there actions at the American people will cost them their jobs come November 2014, by doing this it will send a clear message that that we will no longer stand for this, that is what we most do.
Steve Tanton

Sounds good at first glance, but we must vote for one or the other – the third party libertarian vote only helps Democrats. And it’s a good plan too, if you don’t mind waking up in the pits of hell and trying to climb out. That doesn’t work to well for me, thus I believe in electing true conservatives to office and working through the still workable GOP, despite the oft impotence of its leaders. We did it in 2012, we can do it more in 2014…

What we need to do here, comes down to one thing. America needs to march on the White House by the millions and tell this president. That no longer will this behavior but tolerated by Americans, and if this administration dose not listen to the people.

If we fail to recognize our enemy we lose, if Americans think that the current administration fails to realize the voice of the American people, think again.

No rights , no freedom, no say in anything.

Hi. While I agree with the distress of our country I draw that line at something so important as our flag. Can’t “play around” with traditions of our flag. I feel like that would be mocking it. Protest is good, but that actin would be just as disrespectful to the flag. But that’s me 🙂

RMP is correct the proper way to fly the flag in distress is for the stars to be at the bottom, its to show others that help is needed ASAP when no other means of communication is available. It is not a sign of disrespect.
