The people still don't get it, Many believe that the Congress is Irrelevant and only the presidential power of Obama counts, The author of such an article, Steve McCann that once worked on the Romney Committee contradicts himself throughout his writing on the subject. For example;
“Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency.”
Obama did not make the Congress irrelevant; the Congress made the Congress irrelevant under “the leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi” as only the Congress has the power to do and created this Imperial presidency.
The president, whomever that may be, is charged with “to take care that the laws (passed by Congress) are faithfully executed” (Art II, US Constitution.) not make laws or create for himself an imperial presidency. Only the Congress can allow and in this Congress’ case, encourage and aid and abet this last president’s unlawful power grab.
The Congress has allowed this Executive and the last three presidents an unlimited supply of “get out of jail free” cards and I do not need to go into the ugly details of the various domestic and international crimes these last three or more administrations have committed. Drug running, gun running, drug money laundering, war crimes, violations of Geneva conventions on torture, assassinations and wars of aggression, ad nauseum are just a partial list of their overt criminal activity and not to mention all the violations of their oaths of office. In this the Congress is irrevocably and intentionally complicit
The Congressional oversight committees have turned a blind eye and more often than not have whitewashed and even concealed relevant facts and evidence to give the Executive branch and their thuggish department’s exoneration of any wrongdoing. In many cases Congress has rewarded the blatant lawbreaking of the executive branch and the president himself, with promotions for the criminals that perpetrated the crime(s) and more appropriated funding (as only the Congress has the power to do) to continue their unlawful acts
Only the Congress has the ability and the power to impeach and remove from office the president, not the other way around. The president is constitutionally and by design, the weakest of the three branches of government as the Founding Fathers knew that giving a president powers that could not be curtailed and controlled by the Congress and the courts was a recipe for an imperial presidency much like what the revolution was fought for. Tyranny of the executive and the federal thugs he has set upon us such as we are experiencing now will continue unless this corrupt, organized criminal oligarchy that is our Congress is replaced with new members that are still not whored to the banksters on Wall Street, the Pentagon and the siren song of Global governance that both Obama, Romney and many if not all of the Ruling Class banksters and transnational corporations lust for.
Voters had better get a copy of our Constitution and study both Article I; the Congress and Article II; the Executive Branch to see who has the power to control who.
And remember this; Global governance is the end of US sovereignty the two cannot coexist as Globalism is treason. Americans are either adherents and believers in the US Constitution or they are in fact traitors. There is no other alternative. There is no such thing as being a “little bit pregnant.”
The author Steve McCann is obviously a shill for the Romney campaign and deliberately misleading the public in presenting Romney as an alternative to the globalist traitor Obama and the Global government entities he represents, as any differences in their imperial leadership and agenda is minuscule and in fact nonexistent.
Both want the US transformed into some sort of corporate, global monarchy where the rest of us become their serfs and slaves. That is why they want the ill informed to concentrate on the presidential race instead of the Congress, which BTW are the only directly elected government officials in the United States. Presidents are chosen by electors of the several states and chosen (the electors) by the parties. McCann is misleading us.
