Obama’s despotic rule: Montesquieu knew this would happen

As I look back on this past week, I have to summarize it in one word: crisis.

Domestically we face a constitutional crisis with a president who doesn’t believe he must adhere to our fundamental system of governance. If you have some time, take a read through or refresh yourself on the “Spirit of the Laws” by Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu in 1748.

In that simple treatise, Montesquieu presented the idea of the separation of powers, checks and balances, and coequal branches of government. These ideas were adopted by our Founding Fathers, more specifically, James Madison, as he wrote the Constitution of the United States and the Federalist Papers – which I believe President Obama, the self-proclaimed constitutional scholar, has never read.

Montesquieu said, “When the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person or in the same body of magistrates, there can be no liberty. The same monarch or senate would enact tyrannical laws and execute them in a tyrannical manner.”

Montesquieu believed liberty was impossible if the judicial branch was not separated from the legislative and executive powers. He believed if the judiciary were combined with legislative power, individual life and liberty would be vulnerable to arbitrary control. Even worse, if the judiciary were combined with executive powers, judges would be oppressive and violent.

In the worst case of all, the same person or body would control all three powers.

Montesquieu, a champion of individual dignity and liberty, raised his voice against the despotic rule of the Bourbon monarchy of Louis XIV who boasted, “I am the state.” Montesquieu knew well that “constant experience shows us that every man invested with power is apt to abuse it, and to carry his authority until he is confronted with limits.”

But as Montesquieu stood up to the despotic rule of the king, who will stand up to the despotic rule of Obama?

If no one accepts this mantle and casts down the gauntlet, the constitutional crisis we face will only be exacerbated. The cancer will further metastasize.

We are in the sixth year of Obama, and I predicted if we reelected this charlatan to a second term it would be the greatest Pavlovian experiment the world has ever known. America would reward the most abhorrent of behavior — and lo and behold, “yes we did.” America is in crisis. Who will be our Montesquieu? Who will stand in the arena as our Maximus?

please tell us about how those old white guys knew nothing of what today would be like when they wrote that pesky US Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence? It is said of Harry Truman when having a meeting of many heads of state at The White House he mused; not greater collection of intelligence has been present in this room since Thomas Jefferson dined alone…no truer words have been spoken..and as Madison or Jefferson said to the inquiring; Sir We have given you a Republic if you can keep it….it seems they all were right

Because the Democrats have skillfully put their people in power. Those who are meant to put a check against over reach look the other way. The system has been purposefully corrupted from within to achieve an end result we are only slowly coming to terms with.

Obama and his regime know they can just disregard checks and balances and the congress and “We the People” will just look the other way. See my previous post in this thread. The “sheeple” have been asleep for decades, have little or no knowlege of our political system, our constitution, or how they are being sold into serfdom by Marxist radicals. Each of us must SPREAD THE WORD to everyone we know – especially the “useful idiots” who will gladly trade their liberty and freedom for “candy handouts” like an “Obamaphone.” We have been warned for over half-a-decade — listen… Read more »

He treated Glenn like a clown when he tried to warn us of these criminally insane radicals from the beginning! Now, when Bill actually does see something for what it is, he pretends like it’s HIS idea when Glenn told him the same thing 5 or 6 years ago!

And Mr. West, I have for years referred to the so-called “educational establishments”, including organized religion as the foundations whereby an on-going experiment in Pavlovian “Planned Programmed Social Co-dependence” has been put into effect. The end result is/are chronological adults who emote (slobber) their way through life, putting on public and private performances for the sake of appearance, and social approval, much like one of Pavlov’s dogs would do when conditioned to slobber when hearing the dinner bell.

This has been fore warned by a lot of us citizens that have been paying attention but some people like O’Reilly don’t believe it. The warnings are out there but people have to do some research of when this type of rule has been done before and then the outcome will be evident. America is going down the ladder and the out come will not be good. Americans have got to pay attention and act not just talk. The old saying, “talk is cheap” and “actions speak louder than words” are showing their course

The time may come when such action is our only option – but thank God, we are far away from that time.

At that point investigations of all the ongoing scandals can be pushed forward. If warranted, and I believe that this is likely, impeachment proceedings can be opened. With only a small number of Democrats required to convict, removal from office is a very real possibility. We must always operate within the constitution. To do… Read more »

The Constitution already gives the States those powers. The States just have to use them. However, the states are infiltrated with power-hungry leaders who want to make a name for themselves and position them for election to higher offices. Nullification also gives the States all the powers it needs, if we would just use them.

I agree with everything you wrote. Perhaps, though, it was a mistake not to mention the real cause that Obama got reelected: there was no competition. Romney never stood a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Obama and the GOP surely knew that. Romney came across as a slimy, lying elitist. Conservative voters stayed home because they realized they were only choosing between the devil they knew and the devil they didn’t know. That’s not a choice. The GOP, or whoever the highest members work for, didn’t want to win. This was a rigged election.

GaylePutt

Seeing as the GOP seems to be going along with everything Obummer throws out there, they didn’t need to win. It’s looking more and more as if they’re all the same corrupt, selfish, power-grabbing, venal and unprincipled reprobates.

You know, lately several things have been said by one of them on different discussions that I was surprised to hear on FOX. I don’t mind both opinions, because it lets you know what the other side is thinking, but I do wonder if FOX is turning.

So far it appears to be Rand Paul. And God love him for it.

Sen. Jeff Sessions is definitely fond of Obama and his agenda.

A VERY
Accurate picture. With his head swelled by all of the flattery and
praise he has received from the political class and the Mainstream
Media, even though he has done NOTHING to deserve it, he must truly think that he is The Sun King and the world revolves around HIM. “Le etat c’est moi!”

Do NOT doubt – ALL of them.

They think they are above the law. I believe they are going to find out they are not and I think it will be before November.

[“They] are of [their] father the devil, and the DESIRES OF [THEIR] FATHER [THEY] WANT TO DO. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does NOT STAND IN THE TRUTH, because THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. When he speaks a LIE, he speaks from his own resources, for HE IS a LIAR AND the FATHER OF IT.” (John 8:44) The Devil (from Greek: διάβολος or diábolos) means liar, deceiver, slanderer or accuser/adversary. The Devil (GreeK) = Satan (Hebrew) The Devil aka Satan makes obstacles for all goods. He accuses people not only before God, but he accuses people… Read more »

Goes to show EDUCATION doesn’t cease after Graduation…….Knowledge and WISDOM is attained when we seek and ACCEPT the TRUTH. That doesn’t come from Schools; THAT comes from a lot of BAD DECISIONS and the RAMIFICATIONS thereof.

Thank you, Allen, for sharing this piece of history. It’s as if Montesquieu was living under obama and not King Louis XIV.

We say “History repeats itself” and many ignore that TRUTH. Charles-Louis de Secondat the Baron de Montesquieu wrote in 1748 (EMPHASIS added): “Democracies CAN BE CORRUPTED in two ways: by what Montesquieu calls “the spirit of INEQUALITY” and “the spirit of EXTREME EQUALITY”. The spirit of INEQUALITY ARISES WHEN citizens NO LONGER IDENTIFY their interests with the interests of THEIR COUNTRY, and therefore SEEK BOTH TO ADVANCE THEIR OWN PIVATE INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF THEIR FELLOW CTIZENS, AND TO ACQUIRE POLTICAL POWER OVER THEM. The spirit of EXTREME EQUALITY ARISES WHEN THE PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER CONTENT TO BE… Read more »

Thank you but I am nothing more than a messenger Miss Maxine. The TRUTH is already published, tested and VERIFIED; we only have to RECEIVE IT and most of all, ACCEPT IT. We could ALL PROFIT from understanding the “couplets” of the Book of Proverbs: “A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge. The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit. Fools make a mock… Read more »

I am watching the History Channel tonight, they are showing a series “The World at War” about WWII. The first chapter covers 1933-1939 as Hitler builds up his strength and takes over “drip by drip” as one woman described it. By the time people realized what was going on behind the scenes, it was too late. Watch it and see how Obama, his administration and a corrupt media are going the same route as Hitler. It is scarier than anything Hollywood could produce…..

In this evil mix is Islam. Nazi-Islam . The Nazi-Islamists aka the Muslim Brotherhood is pushing the SHARIA . Here we have CREEPING SHARIA not the pushing violent attacks in Africa and Europe and the UK—not yet ,that is.
If the O-BOMBER is allowed to continue his Islam0-nazi quest it will happen.

I was a History major in college and I took a course in WWII because that was my favorite subject in History to study. I totally agree with you, I have noticed the same comparisons especially since Obama began his second term. It scares me and I hope those who are supposed to be part of the “Checks and Balances” will put a stop to this nonsense before as you said, it is too late.

It seems that those who promised to stand strong on the checks and balances have decided to stand down (Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Graham, Ryan, Cantor) and aided by the likes of Karl Rove have succeeded in allowing O to rule as he pleases. What got held over them? What changed?

I don’t know and I don’t know what to do about it except to pray and hope God will continue to bless this nation even though the leaders have left him. Most of the population has not.

Yes, I see the parallel also. What bothers me more is why the House and Senate will not act to uphold the Constitution! One should be very troubled by a litmus test of top pentagon generals that asks: “Are you willing to give the order to open fire domestically upon American Citizens?”

Unfortunately they all work for the same bosses and that is not us or U.S. It is a supranational group who is watering American independence down with Mexico, stripping Americans of jobs, letting the infrastructure rot, perverting our children and our culture, and systematically destroying the economy. The only reason the stock market goes strong is they are continuing to devalue the dollar and they still can pull wealth from the market themselves. Yes the gap between haves and have nots is growing and it has nothing to do with the narcissistic puppets in politics. They are all fully compromised… Read more »

Sorry I missed it. My TV Guide does not list it on the History Channel. I doubt the younger generation watched it and they are the ones that needed to.

It was called “The World at War”, and it was the first chapter that covered 1933-39 on the Military Channel. Maybe their website would tell you more?

We’ve simply reached that point in the history of our Republic when a majority endowed with the power of the “vote” are no longer concerned with right and wrong because personally they can’t discern the difference. But we’ve been facing this dilemma since 1960 and it’s not going to get better any time soon. Our country will first have to implode and then rebuild. Read all of Montesquieu!

The more a criminal gets away with, the more criminal they become. It goes to their head like a rush of power and that’s when they start to escalate things. At that point however, they not only get greedier but start getting sloppy, very sloppy until finally, they screw up and are caught red-handed and won’t be able to deny it. My current assessment of obama; he’s escalating and getting very sloppy. Now is the time to bust him and haul him in.

I would be more than happy to (even if my husband tells me “no”)! Unfortunately being just me it is far to easy to have me arrested or shot. We need to ALL be Montesquieu, together we CAN make a difference, alone I’d just be a target.
