The Shape Of Things To Come

The New US Army!

It will happen sooner or later, especially with the Obama Administration Regime.  Even though President Obama has not gotten his private army up and running, those on the Left have discovered another way to force their agenda on the American people:  Use The Armed Forces!

Yes this from the very people who hate and despise the men and women who proudly wear this nation's uniform.
The liberal Center for American Progress doesn’t believe significant GOP gains in the House and Senate should stop the president from implementing more of his polices. The group released a report Tuesday suggesting ways Obama can bypass Congress to accomplish a progressive agenda, and it cites the president’s power as commander-in-chief to make its point.

“I think most of the conversation since the election has been about how President Obama adjusts to the new situation on Capitol Hill,” Center for American Progress head and former Bill Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta told the Daily Caller. “While that’s an important conversation, it simply ignores the president’s ability to use all levels of his power and authority to move the country forward.”

How does one “move the country forward”? In the center’s report, Podesta explains that Obama can use executive orders, rule making, and even the armed forces “to accomplish important change” and that such means “should not be underestimated.”

What exactly does Podesta think the president should use such powers to “accomplish”? Among others, the report suggests “job creation,“ ”quality affordable health care,“ ”sustainable security,“ and ”a clean energy future.”

The report cites specific goals such as mitigating the effects of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, supporting a Palestinian state, and reducing greenhouse gasses by 17 percent by 2020.

“The U.S. Constitution and the laws of our nation grant the president significant authority to make and implement policy,” Podesta writes. ”Congressional gridlock does not mean the federal government stands still.”

The Center for American Progress is funded by liberal billionaire financier George Soros.

I wonder how many in the military would actually follow the orders to establish a dictatorship under Barack Hussein Obama?  Half?  Three-fourths?  A third?  One Fifth?  None?  I fear that a good portion of the military would follow such orders.  I would be praying for a Coup d'etat to happen very quickly.

It has been said that the checks and balances our Constitution insures prevents this from happening. Yet we have over 30 "Czars" who answer only to Obama, running the government?

I fear that if Obama loses the 2012 election he will try something like this to stay in power.  Tha is why we should remember the words of Oliver Cromwell:
Keep your faith in God, but keep your powder dry.

Since George Soros said this week if Obama can't get the job done, we must get someone who can, do you think he meant Comrade or Dictator Obama?

Katie your comment form allows we only to be linked back to my old blog. OpenID seems not to be an option, so I'll leave my new blog url here.

Is it possible for you to add Name/URL to the comment form?
