The Obama Doctrine: force and coercion by pen and phone

The great thing about being a dictator is you aren’t required to have leadership ability. You don’t even need to be competent, just manipulative, deceptive, power hungry and vicious.

When you’re a dictator you don’t have to articulate your vision and you don’t have to work with anyone. All you have to do is demagogue while delivering empty rhetorical diatribe and behind the scenes intimidate and crush those who stand in your absolutism.

Being dictator means you can use force and coercion as the means to your end – which can be accomplished with just your pen and phone.

And so here we are in America today, the day before President Obama’s State of the Union address and the theme will likely be “executive action” rather than good governance.

According to The Hill,

President Obama has dubbed 2014 a “year of action,” vowing to rely heavily on executive authority to accomplish ambitious– but yet unspecified – policy goals. Top administration officials, perhaps not wanting to get ahead of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, have been vague about what that might entail, even while insisting Obama means to use his “pen and phone” to get things done.

Instead of finding policy means to work with Congress, President Obama will utilize a range of powers to impose his progressive socialist agenda, including presidential directives, formal executive orders, and rulemaking authority at agencies throughout his administration.

If you watched Obama White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer on yesterday’s Sunday morning news programs, you got exactly that sense. The Hill report provides an insight into the leftist perspective,

Public interest groups have been frustrated with what they view as slow progress during the Obama administration on a host of environmental, public health and safety protections. They argue the constraints at the end of Obama’s first term should be lifted now that the president doesn’t have to worry about re-election.

In addition, upward mobility and economic fairness, aka “income inequality” are expected to be major themes of Obama’s speech — never mind that per our Constitution, fiscal policy initiatives require congressional action.

But Obama could enact an executive order requiring federal agencies to give preference to contractors that paid their employees over $10.10 an hour, according to proponents both within and outside Congress.

Just for fun, compare Obama’s economic ineptness and failures to the competence and success of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. You know, that fella the Left hoped to destroy by deploying hundreds of thousands of protesters to the State Capitol in Madison? The state where Democrat State Senators abandoned their duties and fled across the state border and hid in Illinois? And don’t forget that recall election where he won by a greater margin than the original election, and boy did the left bus in voters from next door in Illinois.

Well, Governor Walker now has a $1 billion dollar surplus which he will use to provide more tax relief to Wisconsans, not more government spending. Wages are increasing and economic opportunity is growing. That is governing. That is leading.

Obama? Well, how much more debt have we amassed? What happened to cutting the deficit in half — the inherited Bush final year deficit was $468 billion, and Obama agreed with the bailouts. So as we pointed out last week in our State of the Union preview, we won’t hear about policies, just more politics. The economy is not improving. And President Obama doesn’t need to tell us about “ladders of opportunity.”

Every child born in America, every person coming here legally receives the ladder of equal opportunity. We don’t need Barack Hussein Obama to deceive us into believing he is the giver of opportunity by executive action or order – with pen and phone, he will be the taker.

Let us hope we can elect representatives with a backbone this election cycle – those who will stand up to this would-be tyrant. Lord knows Boehner has a serious lack of mineral deposits in his vertabrae…
On a side note, I wonder if Col. West’s personal troll will show up again today?

As we, intense Canadian observers watch the Obama History Channel, most here feel that there will NOT be a November Election, unless Obama is 100% guaranteed a sweeping Democratic victory. What in God’s name, ever, would give you the perception that Hussien Obama and his Masters would except any other outcome at this point? Please, give us one (1) valid reason “they” would allow the loss, of any degree of “CONTROL”, whatsoever, when “they” have already advanced their agenda so far and their evil “transformation” just in it’s infancy…..there is no turning back now that Obama knows, full well, it’s… Read more »

We are the land of equal opportunity for all. What one does with that opportunity is solely up to each individual. But what Obama wants is equal outcome for all. Newsflash, Mr. President: that is called communism. And we don’t do communism here.

Unfortunately, nowadays that ladder of opportunity leads down into Barry’s pit of debt. All Americans are on the hook for $16 trillion and rising.

Col. West, please consider forming a ticket with Governor Walker! You two are each proven leaders who could get this country turned around and headed back toward prosperity! America must restore the ties to our Constitution as these guidelines provide the bedrock for our country’s national identity, unity and exceptionalism.

I’ll be watching the ‘State of The Onion’ address for laughs. When Obama talks about an economy on the mend, and a functional Obama Care, the congressional gathering should burst out laughing. I wish the president would ask me where to stick his pen and phone.

I plan to watch online. However, when it becomes apparent that his speech is just more meaningless rhetoric, I may just wait for the transcript. I am interested in hearing the progress of the “shovel ready jobs” to repair our nation’s roads, bridges and aging infrastructure. What is his administration’s policy for reducing government waste? Are there plans to close or reduce redundant agencies? I realize that getting rid of thousands of unnecessary government workers would have an adverse effect on the unemployment numbers, but how much taxpayer dollars could be re-appropriated to agencies presently understaffed and underfunded through such… Read more »

I believe and have since 2008 that 2014 is going to be a very regrettable year for the United States. Obama is going to let all hell break lose in every spectrum of our lives. He will prove that he is the leader to take this nation down to the depths we have never imagined. We are doomed by this lying charismatic Demon and we have bought into it.
May God have Mercy.

I think I will watch old videotaped speeches by Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Reagan instead 🙂 A safe bet is that this President will go heavy on Rules 3, 8 and 12. Probably sprinkle in some 4 through 6 too. * RULE 3: Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. * RULE 8: Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. RULE 12: Pick the target,… Read more »

Elections do, indeed, have consequences. Conservatives felt Mitt Romney was a RINO and stayed home. Had this good man–who loves his country and has a wife who is proud of her country–been elected we would not be having such a conversation re dictatorship. Instead, we’ve got 2014, 2015, 2016 and until Inauguration Day 2017 for Obama to destroy our nation with his fascist minions blathering way about “income equality” and accusing anyone who despises fascism of being a racist. The damage done to America will take 25 or more years to undo…provided we can keep a Democrat out of the… Read more »

Is everyone aware that when Odumbo posed for this picture, he was insulting the Jews! All Muslims know this is and insult, and Odumbo obviously did this because he thinks Americans are too dumb to catch on! God help us if he brings our boys to fight in the Middle East, and with no Bibles at that!

You are exactly right about that. Showing the bottom of your shoes to the infidels is of the utmost disrespect and he is doing it to all of America. Come on conservatives, stop this dictator now, that is what we elected you to do.

From the first time I heard that lying voice back in 2008, I’ve ran to turn it off. I don’t plan to turn it on until I either hear that he’s gone or by some miracle he’s recanted, incarcerated or converted.

All republicans and Tea Party Members should unilaterally ( Immediately stand at the end of his speech as if to give an ovation !) and chant together, Liar, Liar and then walk out together in solidarity ! Do you think then he and the world would then get the Message ? I’d Pay good money to see that Happen ! Amen ! Get some Balls, Congress and Senate ! All God fearing American Patriots Would Back You Up With That Move !!!

The only reason I can see why we have not had a major terrorist attack is that Muslims agree Obama is doing the job from within for them. About the time we get close to kicking the usurper out mark my words there will be another 9/11.

THIS WAS WRITTEN 15 YEARS AGO: “The state of American education being what it is, the vast majority of people are totally incapable of recognizing a FASCIST ECONOMIC PROGRAM, even when it is used to slap them in the face. This is because they have not been taught that fascism means state direction of the economy, cradle to grave “social security”, complete control of education, government intervention in every nook and cranny of the economy – and the belief that the individual belongs to the state.” — James Henry, January 24th, 1999 FASCISM — Any program for setting up and… Read more »

The problem with ladders is that they go down as well as up! Going either way requires effort, something those expecting entitlement do not seem capable of exerting much of. A broken rung can make a ladder slow to climb – but a broken rung hastens a descent! What do you think of the Obamacare roll out…ladder with a broken rung?
Personally, I’d rather be left alone and exert the effort to climb my own stairs!

America needs better people than this jackal criminal president. This jerk off has used all kinds of corruptive measures to get his way. This isn’t the kind of government America deserves, a government by threats. Obama needs to be tried for treason, for continuous lies and financial death measures to our country. He imports more muslims so he can someday hear the most beautiful music on American streets, the morning call to prayer, his idea of beautiful sound for America. What president would want to change the national anthem to “I want to teach the world to sing”. You can’t… Read more »
