If one man is allowed to singlehandedly change the law for 800,000 people in a way that he never could have achieved through the constitutional legal process, and he remains unchallenged, we are no longer living in a constitutional republic.

If one man is allowed to singlehandedly change the law for 800,000 people in a way that he never could have achieved through the constitutional legal process, and he remains unchallenged, we are no longer living in a constitutional republic.

With President Obama’s granting of de facto amnesty to young illegal immigrants through executive order, he has completely thrown out the Constitution and for all intents and purposes made himself a king in all but name.

Not only that, but he has made himself the worst kind of king — a tyrant. Tyrants are those rulers who place themselves above the law.

For even kings in most of Western history were subject to the law. Obama has made it obvious he feels no such restraint.

This has been in the works for some time. Many of us saw the train coming down the tracks long ago, but many Americans are just waking up this morning to the idea that their country is fundamentally changed. Many more amazingly remain asleep.

Change is what Obama promised and what he’s delivering. Is it really what Americans thought they were voting for? This president has been ruling by decree for the past several years, and his executive orders, when studied as a whole, have a clear (to some of us) and alarming direction:

Order 10990 — Takeover of transportation, highways and seaports.

Order 10995 — Seizure and control of telecommunications, particularly radio.

Order 10997 — Takeover of all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

Order 11000 — Forced mobilization of civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

Order 11001 — Takeover of health education and welfare functions.

Order 11002 — Authorizes national registration of all people under the Postmaster General.

Order 11003 — Seizure of airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

Order 11004 — Authorizes the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate entire populations.

Order 11005 — Takeover of railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

Order 11051 — Authorizes the Office of Emergency Planning to put all executive orders into effect during increased international tensions and economic crisis.

Order 11310 — Department of Justice will enforce plans set out in executive orders, institute Industrial support, establish judicial and legislative liaison, control all aliens, operate penal and correctional institutions, and advise and assist the president.

Order 11921 — The Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency will make plans to establish control over production and distribution of energy, wages, salaries, credit, and the flow of money in any national emergency. When the president declares a state of emergency, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

The ball right now is in Congress’ court. It’s up to the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, to lead the fight.
If Obama gets away with his amnesty by executive order, he will have proved that there is no one who can stop him. He has in place all the legal framework he needs to crack down on dissent and prevent any possible physical resistance. All he need do is declare a national emergency, and his administration has set up several potential “crises” that could precipitate such a declaration.

If it comes to that, there will be no one but us average citizens to stand up for freedom.

Executive Order 13578 - Coordinating Policies on Automotive Communities and Workers

Section 1. Policy. Over the last decade, the United States has experienced a decline in employment in the automotive industry and among part suppliers. This decline accelerated dramatically from 2008 to 2009, with more than 400,000 jobs being lost in the industry. Now, 2 years later, the American automotive industry is beginning to recover. The automotive industry has, over the past 2 years, experienced its strongest period of job growth since the late 1990s. Exports have expanded, and the domestic automakers in 2010 gained market share for the first time since 1995. The automotive supply chain, which employs three times as many workers as the automakers, has also shown renewed strength. However, we still have a long way to go.

Executive Order 13555 - White House Initiative On Educational Excellence For Hispanics

Hispanic students are the largest minority group in our Nation's schools, numbering more than 11 million in our public elementary and secondary school system, and constituting more than 22 percent of all pre-K–12 students. Hispanic students face educational challenges of crisis proportions. Fewer than half of all Hispanic children participate in early childhood education programs, and far too few Hispanic students graduate from high school; of those who do complete high school, many are not adequately prepared for college. Only 12 percent of adult Hispanics have a bachelor's degree, and just 3 percent have completed graduate or professional degree programs.

The Executive order puts in place an Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, to be housed in the Department of Education. The mission of the Initiative shall be to help restore the United States to its role as the global leader in education and to strengthen the Nation by expanding educational opportunities and improving educational outcomes for Hispanics of all ages and by helping to ensure that all Hispanics receive a complete and competitive education that prepares them for college, a career, and productive and satisfying lives.

Executive Order - Classified National Security Information

This order prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism. Our democratic principles require that the American people be informed of the activities of their Government. Also, our Nation's progress depends on the free flow of information both within the Government and to the American people. Nevertheless, throughout our history, the national defense has required that certain information be maintained in confidence in order to protect our citizens, our democratic institutions, our homeland security, and our interactions with foreign nations. Protecting information critical to our Nation's security and demonstrating our commitment to open Government through accurate and accountable application of classification standards and routine, secure, and effective declassification are equally important priorities.

Sound familiar? A few tweaks by the 4th reich but the bush plan was the same...

Quote:
How Did Hitler’s Economic Policies Relate to His Schemes For Territorial Expansion?

Hitler was not an economic theorist – Nazism had no underlying economic component – was fundamentally racist and volkischand economic factors were subordinate

Hitler did have ideas though about his economic policy – see in MK and ZB – four main priorities:

1. Wanted to create an autarkic system so Germany would be able to sustain a broader hegemony within Europe

2. To target the lands to the east

3. This involved expansion and therefore conflict so the infrastructure would have to accommodate an increase in militaryexpenditure

4. He needed the support of the German people for this and could not risk depressing living standards too much

How was he to fit them together? 1920s saw the emergence of the lebensraum policy which was to provide the infrastructure for all Hitler’s ideas about the ultimate purpose of economic change – post 1933 got the chance to put in to practice

Hitler’s underlying economic approach changed in the 1920s – were two possible approached to the establishment of future Nazieconomic policy – socialism or nationalistic

First was championed by Strasser – by 1930 Hitler had made it clear what his views were

Latter was Hitler's preference – was based on the logical connection between territorial expansion and self-sufficiency – lebensraum and autarky – twin pillars of Hitler’s strategy

Such goals would involve conflict but as Hitler said in MK – the strong would prevail

Some have dismissed these ideas as the fantasies of an immature politician – wrong to do so:

Many on the conservative right took them seriously in the 1920s and early 1930s as fitted with the pan German ideas of theSecond Reich – Hitler was bale to find converts among the respectable

Also the eventual shaping of German hegemony in Europe bears a close resemblance to the original prototype – MK may not bea blueprint but also not daydreaming

Autarky would underpin the future economy – lebensraum would provide the geographical cohesion and rearmament would provide the means of achieving lebensraum – how to do this – two contrasting answers

1. One line of argument would stress that the implementation of economic policy became essentially pragmatic – Hitler had tomodify his theories on the domestic front just as he did in foreign policy until he was certain of his power base – Schacht's initial policies were therefore based on the immediate requirements of job creation and wage control – Schacht was sensible andestablished trade agreements with the Balkan states – raw materials for German goods – was tolerated until 1936 but then Hitler wanted to place more emphasis on rearmament than Schacht thought was wise

By now Hitler was more established and there had been enough of a recovery to allow an acceleration in the rearmament programme – 1937 Hossbach Hitler made it clear that they were to prepare for war – Goering and the Four Year Plan placed theGerman economy on a war footing with the promotion of self sufficiency and developing substitutes for materials

Again Hitler had to settle for a pragmatic course – several historians have argued that he could not pursue a policy geared to totalmobilisation and total war

Klein
– maintains that he still needed the support of the German consumer and had to settle or a compromise – an economy thatwould allow a limited degree of rearmament but still allowing a reasonable level of consumer affluence

Sauer
– balance meant the creation of the plunder economy – the only way in which Germany could grow from limitedmobilisation was by steadily expanding its economic base through a series of rapid and specifically targeted conquests – Hitler committed himself to starting war in the near future – Blitzkrieg was an economic devise and seemed to work until 1941

Hiden and Farquharson
– Hitler did not want to use a Marxist control system or the capitalist system of pre 1929 – what yousee is implementing lebensraum which developed a policy of internal economic empire akin to the earlier European policy of mercantilism

Total war then wrecked the new economic order – once Blitzkrieg failed to work then had trouble

2. From the start Hitler moved systematically towards equipping Germany with an economic base capable of achievinglebensraum

Berghahn
– the rearmament programme that began in 1933 was nothing less than the deliberate unhinging of the nationaleconomy with the intention of recovering the financial losses by exploiting other national economies of Europe within theconfines of a German dominated empire conquered by force

Is true that some of Schacht’s policies were a continuation of Bruning’s deflationary approach – were tolerated by Hitler whosaw them as essential for the establishment of the infrastructure of autarky

Hence the trading networks with the Balkans would be the first step in the establishment of German hegemony

Public works – the autobahns – would help the military infrastructure

Controls on wages – create a disciplined workforce

Hitler was using the New Plan as the first stage in the move towards total war

Thanks for the article and for your lengthy followup in the comments section. The left's failure to show any concern for the President's overuse of the executive power (which threatens to undermine our Constitutional system of checks and balances) is incredibly hypocritical given their hyperventilating concern for the much milder uses of executive power in the Bush administration.
