Man of Action

Along with ObamaCare, which fundamentally transformed the relationship between the citizen and his government; and along with his selective enforcement of, and unconstitutional rewritings of, federal statutes, which has fundamentally changed the rule of law; Obama will now use executive fiat to go around Congress, one party of which “refuses to act” in declaring the “science settled” and human exhalation a pollutant that requires the full array of bureaucratic countermeasures to keep in check — included in which are the molestation of businesses, regulations that will prevent entrepreneurship, measures that will “necessarily” cause the price of electricity to “skyrocket,” the intentional “de-growth” of the American economy, the dimunition of an upwardly mobile and liberty-blessed “middle class,” the creation of ever new government dependents, a barrier to mobility (both physical and economical), and the creation of crony corporate partnerships to help solidify the liberal fascism that has always been at the heart of progressivism, in the process destroying small business and solidifying the role of corporate welfare in creating a collusion of government and big business interests.

Obama and the progressives are seeking nothing more than an overthrow of our republican system of constitutional representative governance.  They paint checks and balances as evil “obstructionism”; they speak of the Constitution as an impediment, if only backhandedly, by declaring it a Living Document that they themselves should be able to alter at their whim in order to reach the proper ends — ends that are blocked by the recalcitrant, delusional bitterclingers who have managed to overtake the GOP Party and who keep insisting on individual autonomy in times when such freedoms produce the incorrect results, from the point of view of the progressive, and that in itself is reason enough to rebuff the whole Enlightenment paradigm and the government forged as a result.

Today, Obama will declare the debate on climate change (nee’ global cooling, nee’ global warming, nee’ anthropocentric global warming, nee’ weather) over.  And because he has a pen and a phone and has declared this year the year of action — which, were it spoken in a Cuban or Venezuelan dialect would be more appropriately termed “the transition into dictatorship backed by judicial oligarchy and a government press”) — he will tell the American people that, out the goodness of his heart and for their own well-being, he is going to act where Congress refuses.  Separation of powers be damned.  Because a King is only able to allow for that charade until the Potemkin parliament, despite repeated warnings, continues to refuse to do his bidding.

The USA,  1776-2014:  The King is dead.  Long live the King.

– Though I’d prefer we went a different route and responded with “live free or die.”  But then, those were the words of a different kind of citizen at a different point in time.  Today, the Soma tastes just like chicken.

  1. In a time when Democrats make a habit of walking out on democratic procedures (Texas, Wisconsin, Indiana, now Pennsylvania, and at the Federal level of government threatening to do so with the House Select Committee), finger-plugging their ears to speech they cannot bear to hear, it can hardly be surprising to find a tyrant willing to step in to take His Action in their stead.

  2. “live free or die.”

    They are working on making the latter your only choice.

  3. Today, Obama will declare the debate on climate change (nee’ global cooling, nee’ global warming, nee’ anthropocentric global warming, nee’ weather) over.

    Almost threw something at the TV last night. Was watching the NatGEO series Cosmos, and they went there. After spending the first half hour of the episode talking about all the climate changes that happened on earth long before humans got here, even. I just wondered how they could not ask themselves: “So why is the one new environment variable (us) to blame for the change this time, when it wasn’t to blame for all those other times?”

    And if the debate is over, we can cancel all government spending on research into climate change, right?

  4. “So why is the one new environment variable (us) to blame for the change this time, when it wasn’t to blame for all those other times?”

    Because Gaia cannot be made to feel guilty over how far a species has progressed in being able to control the environment, rather than the environment controlling them. But that species can, if you push the right buttons and insist that they don’t deserve the benefits of that progress, while the malaria mosquito and a subspecies of housefly (which can only be distinguished from the standard house fly by having one extra sensory hair on the front pair of legs) DO.

    Which, fuck that, give me air conditioning and clean water. The house flies and mosquitoes had better learn how to avoid the artfully packaged pesticides I keep handy for such occasions, extra sensory hairs be damned.

  5. I’ve been waiting for Cosmos to go there since the series started. I can’t say that they haven’t dropped a million strong hints since the get-go.

  6. I know, leigh, I know. I was just hoping that they might maintain some shred of scientific credibility in this regard.

  7. Regrettable, isn’t it Scott? One of my leftie friends “unfriended” me on FB when I scoffed at AGW and this was in a discussion of how awesome he thought LeGrasse and Cosmos was.

    I can’t honestly say that I miss him and his loony ideas, though.

  8. *DeGrasse*

  9. You can’t debate “global warming” but, The Holocaust is open to academic debate.

  10. *DeGrasse*

    Well, it beats them using that dweeb Brian Cox.

  11. Indeed. My 17 year old loves “The Big Bang Theory”, but a little goes a long way.

  12. It’s not there is photographic evidence and surviving camp structures or actual Holocaust survivors, bgbear.

    Sheesh!

  13. Fundamental transformation has been tried before, to quote Tocqueville:

    The French made, in 1789, the greatest effort that has ever been made by any people to sever their history into two parts, so to speak, and to tear open a gulf between their past and their future. In this design, they took the greatest care to leave every trace of their past condition behind them; they imposed all kinds of restraints upon themselves in order to be different from their ancestry; they omitted nothing which could disguise them.

    They too were the ones they had been waiting for.

  14. No This Brian Cox

  15. I would suggest Brian BLESSSED

  16. There is no Brian Cox but this Brian Cox and Glenfiddich is his dram.

  17. Does anyone besides me have trouble with McG’s link “this Brian Cox”?

    google isn’t keen on my getting access to it.

  18. It’s just you, sdferr.

  19. Pity their isn’t a single Republican politican or talking head with the wit to dmeand that Obama put his money where his mouth is and kill the keystone pipeline then.

  20. It’s not there is photographic evidence and surviving camp structures or actual Holocaust survivors, bgbear.

    Two words: Die Foto-shop.

    That’s right, invented by the Nazis. Wilhelm Tore and Stefan Arbeiten were grabbed in Operation Paperclip.

  21. Is that where Clippy came from? I always thought he looked a little lebensraum-hungry.

  22. Yep, Clippy was the V-4, and MachtPunkt the V-5. Had they been deployed in time, the SHAFE staff would have been paralized.

  23. I knew it, Eingang! Thanks for confirming that for me.

  24. The Obama operatives are swarming Twitter with all manner of spin and SQUIRREL!

    Go tweet “Benghazi was a cover-up” and see how many twits appear out of the woodwork to tell you that:

    — Americans died in Beirut under Reagan and in NYC on 9/11, but GOP outrage is reserved only for the 4 in Benghazi.

    — Obama was in the Oval Office the whole time with Panetta.

    — Bush lied us into Iraq.

    — What difference does it make if Obama blamed one group of terrorists or the other?

    — Bush LIED us into Iraq.

    Delta Force dispatched from Tripoli, so there was TOO a rescue.

    — Lied about the WMDs and you know it.

    — What, we’re going to do 13 Benghazi inquiries now?

    — War criminal, is what Bush is.

    — Reagan lied about Iran-Contra

    Ay, mi madre…

  25. I believe that the spin from the WH on Benghazi will go down the path that what he was told about it up until 7:30 pm Washington time (1:30 am Benghazi) led him to believe that it was not a problem that required his attention. That it had been sorted out at a lower level. And that by the time he found out that it hadn’t that it was too late to do anything about the ambassador. The link explains.

    This will work in conjunction with what all the Democrats are saying about it all over the news and the web though they are not spelling it out just yet. Somewhere lower down a head will roll. Likely whoever sent the email alerts at 4:05 pm and especially 4;54 pm.

  26. BTW. I would not put it past them to have fabricated/altered the emails in some respect to fit a narrative.

  27. If I were still using Twitter for other than tracking severe weather info, I could spend the rest of the week blocking proggy nitwits drawn to dicentra’s, Adam Baldwin’s and Nick Searcy’s feeds. Probably James Woods’s too.

  28. I could spend the rest of the week blocking proggy nitwits drawn to dicentra’s, Adam Baldwin’s and Nick Searcy’s feeds

    @dicentra33 might be in permanent time out. Does that happen?

  29. i h8 chicago communists. and frank marshall davis mulattoes

  30. The Man of Action

  31. Everything is Brian Cox’s dram.

  32. Well, pert near everything.
