Get ready for martial law
Watch what people do, not what they say, especially when it comes to politicians with enormous egos. This president says he loves liberty. He says he upholds the Constitution and the rule of law, according to his oath. He says he understands the Constitution establishes and protects liberty.
But look at what the man does. He violates the Constitution routinely, destroying liberty with each violation.
In a recent press conference, he made excuses for NSA surveillance excesses, proposing meaningless reforms. Obviously, he could not care less about protecting our constitutional right to be free from illegal government search and surveillance.
He uses the IRS to target conservatives to stifle their right to free speech and assembly. For years, Tea Party conservatives have complained they have been denied tax exempt status to operate. The IRS admitted they targeted the Tea Party and other conservatives. IRS officials have testified the White House was involved. Yet recently, the FBI tells us there is nothing to investigate. Just yesterday, it was reported the IRS is now targeting conservatives in Hollywood.
Journalists have been targeted, spied upon, their privacy invaded, and their jobs threatened. White House officials have harassed reporters and editors and producers. Even CNN was threatened for covering Benghazi, as was Fox News. AP reporters’ records were taken and examined by DOJ.
The Obama police state emerges. It gets worse. Much worse.
Pushing passage of the National Defense Authorization Act recently in the dark of night, Obama has now set the stage for arresting American citizens without charge and detaining them indefinitely, according to many respected legal experts. Some have sued the government, stating in court documents:
“The central question now before this court is whether the federal judiciary will stand idly by while Congress and the president establish the legal framework for the establishment of a police state and the subjugation of the American citizenry through the threat of indefinite military arrest and detention, without the right to counsel, the right to confront one’s accusers, or the right to trial.”
Every item listed is a gross violation of due process as guaranteed by the Constitution. Make no mistake: this so-called president is a control freak, a far left statist and egomaniac, hell bent on establishing centralized authority to control all aspects of life.
Police state. Martial law.
Meanwhile, it’s open season on conservatives, Christians, the Catholic Church, and Christian law firms. Liberty Counsel reports it has been targeted by the IRS. Franklin Graham’s ministry was targeted, as are hundreds of other groups refusing to goose step according to the dictates of Obama’s drum beat. Dr. Ben Carson, following remarks critical of Obama, was audited by the IRS for the first time in his life. Gov. Mike Huckabee is now being misrepresented and assaulted by the national media for rightly criticizing the administration on a number of fronts.
No doubt furious over ongoing criticism of ObamaCare and desperate for some power play advantage, Obama has now removed the gloves, no longer restrained by common sense, re-election, or regard for his own party.
Notice coordinated attacks on the governors of New Jersey and Virginia. Notice the conservative-condemning remarks by the governor of New York. Notice the arrest and indictment of conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. Notice harassment of reporters and threats leveled against James O’Keefe. Notice the bold-faced demand by Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY for more IRS harassment and targeting of the Tea Party. He readily acknowledges Congress will not act against his political enemies, so the IRS must be brought in to do his dirty work.
Experienced observers realize that when dealing with the Left, nothing is accidental; all is coordinated and orchestrated.
Recall the White House summoning various media representatives last month coinciding with the appointment of John Podesta to Obama’s inner circle.
Podesta knows how to get things done, one way or the other. He unabashedly recommends the Executive Branch bypass Congress on climate change. A Clintonista from Chicago, Podesta is ‘admired’ for his ability to tamp down scandals and save political fortunes. Certainly, this series of attacks on conservatives is specially designed to distract from Obama’s serial scandals and to turn his poll numbers.
What we are seeing now is a revealed battle plan authored by Podesta and others, and endorsed by this president in league with mass media, all working to centralize power, destroy the Constitution, and establish an oligarchy in America–an oligarchy to be established and preserved by the use of raw military power in a police state environment. The battle plan has actually been revealed for some time. given the other devious tactics employed in the overall strategy.
Obama uses the threat of terrorism to concentrate power in the federal government. He uses so-called man-made global warming to concentrate power. He uses the administrative rule-making authority of a vast bureaucracy to enact tens of thousands of job killing regulations. He uses the race card, gun control, same sex marriage, abortion, education reform, immigration, finance reform, healthcare ‘reform’, and discussions about income disparity to concentrate power. He stacks the courts, corrupts the legislative process, and issues executive orders to concentrate power.
If provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) are allowed to stand by the Supreme Court, the American experiment in liberty and the American dream are dead.
Obama is the enemy within. Either he is defeated, or America is lost.
The American people have been lied to and fooled by the Poser in Chief, over and over, for years. 2014 and 2016 are their last chance at redemption.
