Why Won’t Republicans Stop Obama’s Arrogant, Paternalistic,Totalitarian Overreach?

I’m not trying to be cute, here. I really don’t understand why Republicans keep allowing Obama to usurp congressional and constitutional authority.

In his Washington Post oped, “ObamaCare vs. the Constitution”, Charles Krauthammer chastised Republicans for their ineffectual response to Obama’s abuse of power.  They can’t even seem to communicate to the American people that this administration is guilty of gross overreach, trampling on the Constitution.

In 2010, when all this lay hazily in the future, the sheer arrogance of Obamacare energized a popular resistance powerful enough to deliver an electoral shellacking to Obama. Yet two years later, as the consequences of that overreach materialize before our eyes, the issue is fading. This constitutes a huge failing of the opposition party whose responsibility it is to make the opposition argument.

It’s not just their failure to make the opposition argument to Obamacare that rankles. It’s their failure to respond adequately to all of the totalitarian policies that have been thrust down the American peoples’ throats since he entered office. The Republicans can  hold all of the press conferences in the world showing their opposition to Obama’s policies. You expect an opposition party to oppose. When are they going to do something about Obama’s serial abuses of power?

This wouldn’t be so galling if some of the abuse wasn’t done with Republican consent. After putting up a valiant fight to stop the stimulus, they were AWOL in March of 2009 when Obama expanded Americorps:

With almost no public attention, both chambers of Congress in the past week advanced an alarming expansion of the Americorps national service plan, with the number of federally funded community service job increasing from 75,000 to 250,000 at a cost of $5.7 billion. Lurking behind the feel-good rhetoric spouted by the measure’s advocates is a bill that on closer inspection reveals multiple provisions that together create a strong odor of creepy authoritarianism. The House passed the measure overwhelmingly, while only 14 senators had the sense and courage to vote against it on a key procedural motion. Every legislator who either voted for this bill or didn’t vote at all has some serious explaining to do.

It wasn’t long before Obama was flexing his muscles by firing Americorps IG, Gerald Walpin,  for identifying millions of misspent funds in Sacramento. That story was allowed to fade away, as the Obama Chicago thug machine continued its steamroll over the Constitution. Here’s an incomplete list of his abuses, as compiled by Doug Ross:

• First President to Violate the War Powers Act

• First President to Orchestrate the Sale of Murder Weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels

• First President to issue an unlawful “recess-appointment” while the U.S. Senate remained in session (against the advice of his own Justice Department).

• First President to be Held in Contempt of Court for Illegally Obstructing Oil Drilling in the Gulf of Mexico

• First President to Defy a Federal Judge’s Court Order to Cease Implementing the ‘Health Care Reform’ Law

• First President to halt deportations of illegal aliens and grant them work permits, a form of stealth amnesty roughly equivalent to “The DREAM Act”, which could not pass Congress

• First President to Require All Americans to Purchase a Product From a Third Party

• First President to Spend a Trillion Dollars on ‘Shovel-Ready’ Jobs — and Later Admit There Was No Such Thing as Shovel-Ready Jobs

• First President to sue states for requiring valid IDs to vote, even though the same administration requires valid IDs to travel by air

• First President to Abrogate Bankruptcy Law to Turn Over Control of Companies to His Union Supporters

• First President to sign into law a bill that permits the government to “hold anyone suspected of being associated with terrorism indefinitely, without any form of due process. No indictment. No judge or jury. No evidence. No trial. Just an indefinite jail sentence.

• First President to Bypass Congress and Implement the DREAM Act Through Executive Fiat

• First President to Threaten Insurance Companies After They Publicly Spoke out on How Obamacare Helped Cause their Rate Increases

• First President to Threaten an Auto Company (Ford) After It Publicly Mocked Bailouts of GM and Chrysler

• First President to “Order a Secret Amnesty Program that Stopped the Deportations of Illegal Immigrants Across the U.S., Including Those With Criminal Convictions

• First President to Demand a Company Hand Over $20 Billion to One of His Political Appointees

• First President to Encourage Racial Discrimination and Intimidation at Polling Places

• First President to Have a Law Signed By an ‘Auto-pen’ Without Being “Present”

• First President to Arbitrarily Declare an Existing Law Unconstitutional and Refuse to Enforce It

• First President to Tell a Major Manufacturing Company In Which State They Are Allowed to Locate a Factory

• First President to refuse to comply with a House Oversight Committee subpoena.

• First President to File Lawsuits Against the States He Swore an Oath to Protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN, etc.)

• First President to Withdraw an Existing Coal Permit That Had Been Properly Issued Years Ago

• First President to Propose an Executive Order Demanding Companies Disclose Their Political Contributions to Bid on Government Contracts

Now, we have the Obama administration’s outrageous contraception mandate, in which, to use Charles Krauthammer’s words, “the president of the United States has just ordered private companies to give away for free a service that his own health and human services secretary has repeatedly called a major financial burden.”

On what authority? Where does it say that the president can unilaterally order a private company to provide an allegedly free-standing service at no cost to certain select beneficiaries?

This is government by presidential fiat. In Venezuela, that’s done all the time. Perhaps we should call Obama’s “accommodation” Presidential Decree No. 1.

Rep. Paul Ryan called the Obama administration’s contraception mandate  “paternalistic” and “arrogant.”

“What we’re getting from the White House on this conscience issue, it’s not an issue about contraception, it’s an issue that reveals a political philosophy the president is showing that basically treats our constitutional rights as if they were revocable privileges from our government, not inalienable rights from our creator.” said Ryan on NBC’s Meet the Press.

“We’re seeing this new government activism, paternalistic, arrogant, political philosophy that puts new government-granted rights in the way of our constitutional rights.”

“That’s really not about contraception,” said Ryan of the mandate. “It’s about violating our first amendment rights to religious freedom and conscience.”

Last week, six pro-lifers, including a Catholic priest, were arrested for praying in front of the White House:

They were released shortly thereafter, after paying a $100 fine.

Fr. Denis Wilde, the Associate Director of Priests for Life, told LifeSiteNews that by their arrests the protesters hoped to send a “wake-up call” to President Obama that opposition to his mandate is not going away.

The six were arrested on a charge of “disobeying a lawful order.” The priest explained that while it is legal to hold protests in front of the White House, protesters are not allowed to remain stationary, including if they kneel down and pray.

“Occupy Wall Street protesters have been occupying federal property for months, but when we kneel in prayer, the police are called in and we are arrested,” Father Wilde said. “We knew that was the risk when we gathered today, and we will do it again regardless of the risk. What people of faith – of every faith – need to do now is stand with us.”

In other words, this is only the beginning of the push-back. Republicans are working on legislation to reverse the statute, but they need to do a better job explaining to the American people why ObamaCare as a whole can not be allowed to stand.

2,500 religious leaders recently signed a letter protesting the mandate. Whether Obama wants to admit it or not, his administration is at war with religion.

With the help of 17 House Republicans, Obamacrats passed Michelle Obama’s nutrition bill in December 2010:

For Democrats, it is always better to control and regulate then to be free. Below is what this bill is really about.

But Representative Paul Broun, Republican of Georgia and a physician, said: “This bill is not about child nutrition. It’s not about healthy kids. It’s about an expansion of the federal government, more and more control from Washington, borrowing more money and putting our children in greater debt. The federal government has no business setting nutritional standards and telling families what they should and should not eat.”

The bill gives the secretary of agriculture authority to establish nutrition standards for foods sold in schools during the school day, including items in vending machines.

Oh, but it’s much worse than that …(why are vending machines allowed in schools, anyway?) Now, we literally have “food police” inspecting the lunch-boxes of pre-schoolers, replacing turkey sandwiches with chicken nuggets – at the parents’ expense.

A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because the school told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the person who was inspecting all lunch boxes in the More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs — including in-home day care centers — to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

The girl’s mother — who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation — said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a “healthy lunch” would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

“I don’t feel that I should pay for a cafeteria lunch when I provide lunch for her from home,” the mother wrote in a complaint to her state representative, Republican G.L. Pridgen of Robeson County.

Welcome to Ameritopia. Why are we losing to these freaks?

Now, Seton Motley at Big Government reports,  Obama’s forcing private companies to have board votes on Net Neutrality:

Another day, another Barack Obama Administration totalitarian diktat.

In other words, whatever Obama wants – by any means necessary.

Behold Obama’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Which last week handed down from on-high a mandate that telecommunications companies AT&T, Verizon and Sprint MUST have Board votes on Network Neutrality.

SEC to Telcos: Yes, Net Neutrality is a Significant Policy Issue

The problem for Obama’s SEC is – Net Neutrality isn’t even a LEGAL policy issue.  Because Congress has never passed a law making Net Neutrality actual policy.

The federal government – via the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – first tried to unilaterally impose Net Neutrality in 2008.  And the D.C. Circuit Court in April 2010 unanimously threw the government out on its ear.

Because the FCC “has failed to tie its assertion” of regulatory authority to an actual law enacted by Congress, the agency does not have the power to regulate an Internet provider’s network management practices, wrote Judge David Tatel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Tuesday’s decision could doom one of the signature initiatives of FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, a Democrat. Last October, Genachowski announced plans to begin drafting a formal set of Net neutrality rules–even though Congress has not given the agency permission to do so.

But it didn’t doom Genachowski and Obama’s illegal Net Neutrality intentions.  It didn’t even daunt them.  Just eight months after this stinging rebuke, Obama’s FCC went ahead and illegally jammed through Net Neutrality anyway.

They did so despite the D.C. Circuit Court’s unanimous ruling.  And they did so despite the fact that more than 300 members of the then still-Democrat-Majority Congress – the body charged with giving the FCC Net Neutrality authority – were for months in advance telling them not to.

***

It’s become a familiar pattern – the Obama administration threatens to steamroll over the Constitution, Congress says “You shouldn’t do that!” They do it, anyway. Then the Republicans say, “Oh well”, and “gosh”.

They can’t even seem to rustle up a contempt charge against Eric Holder, the bare minimum of what should be coming to him in a just world, and long overdue:

These fights don’t go quickly, so Issa and the House GOP leadership must up the ante now. Holder’s plainly not going to voluntarily comply with Issa’s subpoenas; presumably, the evidence would just be too explosive.

One approach may be to start pushing other federal agencies; in more news, a federal agent is now saying that the Homeland Security Department knew more about Fast and Furious than has been disclosed — to the extent of even blocking some gun transfers from ATF to the bad guys.

The shell game has gone on long enough. The country deserves answers — not gotcha games.

For months now, Holder has been dodging, obfuscating, withholding evidence and outright lying in his attempt to evade responsibility for the deadly program that has cost the lives of two federal agents and countless Mexican nationals.

Contempt of Congress? Contempt for the American people is more like it.

Memo to Republicans: The Obama Presidency isn’t “politics as usual”, or merely a “failure”.
It is an Obamination, a horror, an offense against the Constitution, an affront to everything decent and holy, and it must be stopped.
Make the frickin’ case.
SEE ALSO:
Ideologues define all problems, no matter how minute, in relation to a failure to comply with their ideal way of life. They will exploit a crisis to achieve power and implement that way of life and that way of life alone. Nothing else interests them and they will not solve any problems except through the implementation of their program.That is what we are up against. That is their weakness, if we can exploit it, but it is also the thrust of their assault on us. On all of us. We are dealing with people who are limited to thinking in very narrow and specific ways. Who are fanatically obsessed with transforming our society, but who are unable to question their own assumptions. That makes them dangerously single-minded, but it also makes them prone to failure.The Obama Administration has been relentlessly single-minded about its domestic program and as a result it has lost public support. What people perceive as economic failure, it views as successful social reforms. If it can reclaim power, it will proceed with an even more ruthless version of the same program. It is not interested in guns or butter. Only in social change.

That’s why the idea of this raging Marxist getting reelected scares the sh*t out of me.

Fox News: Gingrich: Obama is most dangerous president in American history

Tulsa, Okla. – Blasting President Obama the “most dangerous president in modern American history,” Newt Gingrich accused the White House of having an attitude towards violent Islamic extremism that puts political correctness above national security.

“Someone was arrested over the weekend for trying to blow up the US Capitol, they happened to be from Morocco,” Gingrich said, referring to the FBI arrest of Amine El Khalifi Friday while he was allegedly en route to commit a suicide bombing. “Under the Obama administration’s willful dishonesty, it would be highly inappropriate to describe what motivated him, because that would somehow be politically incorrect.”

He referred to the Defense Department’s summary report of the Fort Hood shootings, which characterized Major Hasan’s killing of 13 Americans as workplace violence rather than an attack by radical Islam. “Across the planet today, the forces of religious repression are on the march and this administration has intellectually disarmed, it has morally disarmed, it is incapable of describing what threatens us.”

    You haven’t heard yet? The Republican “establishment” is on the same team. They’re working hard to get a presidential nominee who wants to continue Obama’s agenda.

    There is a a point in time persons off conscience need to stand up and identify that the Emperor has no clothes. I am not offended by persons who have a different perspective to offer their opinions. What I find frequently that rather than communicating openly and plainly our considered opinion, we try to couch our thoughts in a way that curries a modicum of acceptance, rather than immediate dismissal as canned rhetoric. This Administration isn’t the only one in our history worthy of serious consideration for impeachment and/ or recall. I suspect that there is a serious lack of moral courage, requiring one to accept personal responsibility for self sevring action we have all taken from time to time, to preserve a facade of purity which does not exist. And once again rather than accept responsibility, in yet another act of self interest, we seek to preserve a lie that only allows the continued errosion of a community based on mutual respect and honesty. It is social quicksand at its best. There are many who are willing to exploit these opprotunities without any compunction or real consideration of the consequences of our cowardly in action.or rather inaction.

  4. John Says:

    Sadly, you are correct in pointing out how complicit the republican ‘inner circle’ and elected officials are in the assault on freedom. For decades the liberal attack has been to chip away at our freedoms. They have entered a new phase most easily described by analogy. Picture someone (Obama) enters your home and gathers up all of the china in the kitchen. He wants to break these heirlooms and rather than smash each one at a time – he throws them all high into the air. What do you (we) do? Race to grab the most precious or the nearest? Or sit back in disbelief as it all crashes to the floor?

    Those who wantonly destroy our values and liberty know that at some point there will be some (at least 3%) who will take no more. Because of this fact there is/was the subterfuge called Fast & Furious. Well, we know that didn’t work out as planned so now we begin to see reports of increased crime in DC. They will next attempt to draw the conclusion the increase in crime is due to relaxed control of gun ownership – a trend they will attempt to reverse. An attempt that will fail but at what cost? I don’t think Obama or even the ‘inner circle’ of republican leadership cares. The stakes are very high.

  5. nicedeb Says:

    Thanks, Fuzi. That comment made my day.
    And I like your analogy, John. Our Republicans in Congress should be doing a better job catching those plates before they hit the ground.

  6. Carlos Says:

    And, lest we forget, he’s also the first president to openly run a “shadow government” of appointed but unconfirmed “czars” not directly or indirectly answerable to Congress. If the Republican “leadership” had something resembling normal gonads they would not have let this continue for 3 years.

    I’m not a lawyer, but to my simple mind that could easily fall under “high crimes and misdemeanors,” such is the attack on the very basics of the Constitution he swore to uphold and protect.

  7. nicedeb Says:

    Obama isn’t the first President to appoint Czars, but naturally, because he’s Obama – he went above and beyond accepted practice to abuse his power.

  8. Fuzzy Says:

    @Roger: Okie-dokey, this seriously makes me wonder how much wisdom there is among conservatives. I agree, incidentally (and it is incidental) that GOP establishment is just as big government as BO and his traitorous horde. Where we differ, I think, is that I know that BO is not out for political or even financial gain, he’s an ideologue Pure, simple, easy to read. And there’s a huge difference between his plans for our country (which Deb has laid out magnificently) and any–ANY–republican’s plans.

    “The parties are the same” crap was true. Once. Before 2008.

    Look, read, think, connect the dots.

    Not to be overly dramatic, but… when I read this post, this is the first thing I thought of –

    “The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.”

    We’re staggering from one scandal to the next and none of it is being addressed or resolved in any way. It’s just unbelievable to see that list, and know that it’s not even a complete listing of what he’s done in 3 short years.

  12. MM Says:

    My hair has burned off. I called both my Senators here in CO last week asking why aren’t they doing anything about the unConstitutional recess appointments made by Obama. I asked them what’s the point of being in the Senate when this president was bypassing their Constitutionally mandated authority. Both offices told me that my concern was noted.

    I called McConnell’s office and was told THE SAME DAMN THING. It’s disgusting.

    If even one of these actions were taken by a Republican president, we’d see Reid and Pelosi and the whole gaggle of those bastards getting huge face time everywhere.

    But from our side? Not a fricking thing. It makes me sick. Why aren’t we getting on these Sunday shows and jumping down throats? GD pussies. Fuck it. Let’s just let the country run by edict, why even bother with elections if the people WE elect sit by and watch this garbage going on and don’t do squat???

  13. captdax Says:

    True conspiracies are very rare.

    ..This entire Obama situation is a conspiracy, and I say that without the slightest hesitation.

    .. Obama is not a citizen of the United States, he is a puppet front for a cabal of Marxist-Leninsts including Soros, Ayers, Dohrn, Strong, Jarrett and many, many others. These people are enemies of the United States.

    ..These people are deeply psychologically damaged, and are capable of ordering people murdered in order to protect themselves and increase their own power. The three dead homosexual black men from Trinity United Church of Christ, Young, Bland and Spencer, all of whom were sexually linked to Barack Obama, were probably the first people specifically murdered by the Obama regime. The hundreds of Mexicans and the two American agents Terry and Zapata were murdered by Operation Fast and Furious in order to advance and increase the power of the Obama regime.

    ..These SEALS and the others on board that Chinook were almost certainly betrayed and murdered by the Obama regime.

    ..Why did the Obama regime immediately reveal the unit identity of the SPECOPS forces involved in the first place, despite the fact that DEVGRU was highly classified?

    ..Why was the personnel composition of the Chinook released IMMEDIATELY today after the helo went down ­ before even family notifications could be made?

    WHY? Why would you hand your enemy, Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a massive propaganda coup?

    WHY?

    ..I’ll tell you why. Because the Obama regime IS THE ENEMY. They are Marxist tyrants who hold the lives of Americans not just cheap, but in scathing contempt.

    ..They will say anything, they will do anything, and they will murder ANYONE in order to protect themselves and consolidate and increase their power.

    ..Please, I beg you, for the love of God and all that is good in this world, read the history of the Soviet Union. Read about Lenin and Stalin and how they murdered people without any hesitation.

    ..Read about how Hitler was constantly ordering the murder of his own officers. Read about Communist China. Read about Mao and the millions upon tens of millions of murders he ordered. Read about the killing fields of the Communist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia led by Pol Pot. PLEASE.

    >>Marxists MURDER PEOPLE. That is what they do.<<

    ..The Obama regime is MARXIST to the bone. If the Obama regime is not stopped, the 30 Americans murdered today in Afghanistan will be just the beginning. I promise you that.

    Ayers and Obama have worked together on books for at least 21 years, and have cooperated in funneling tens of millions of dollars to leftist indoctrination progammes for youth.

    …All this you may have already known.

    …What is even more chilling is this expose' on how William Ayers is planning to implement their mutual Marxist ideology, should Ayers attain influence on Obama through their long standing relationship. Larry Grathwohl penetrated the Weather Underground to bring this fist hand account of Ayers' (and the Weather Underground's) plans. As you may know, Ayers remains unrepentant to this day, and lives just a few houses away from Barack Hussein Obama. Obama's flimsy and ever-shifting denials of his relationship with Ayers have all but completely disintegrated.

    …Furthermore, the prime backer of Obama, Khalid Al Mansour, was a legal assistant to the Black Panther Party (with an office next door).

    ..It is known from testimony of Weather Underground members that the BPP and Weather Underground worked "very closely" together.

    ..Therefore it it likely that Mansour (who was advising Obama even before he moved from Hawaii, under the tutelage of Communist agent Frank Marshall Davis), was working with Ayers and Dohrn simultaneously.

    Deb, this is a great piece that you put together here, it’s all laid out, many of us have kicked these issues around for a long time, here and numerous other places. Why are the repubics just sitting around and allowing this to take place? dims, are usually the first to scream about the Executive Abuse of Power. We are seeing unprecedented levels of violations of the Law and unconstitutional abuses each and everyday.

    Fortunately, for the Country the ’10 election has slowed the bleeding, but it has hardly stopped. If it were truly investigated this crowd would make Nixon look like a choir boy. The entire “Corrupt Political Machine” from Chicago has been imported to D.C. and let lose, they are running ruffshod over every aspect of our lives to their own and political cronies benefit.

    It’s a disgrace, we are losing our Country more and more each and everyday and the repubics seem to be satisfied watching it all going to hell. Afraid to initiate any kind of action to twart it.

    So tactically, they are keeping their heads down in large part.

    This is why I supported Gingrich. He knows what to say and how to say it so American’s get it. He knew what needed to be done and was willing to do it.
    He had not only the courage but the intelligence to see it through and get the majority of Americans on his side to get it done.
    This is why he was feared and hated by the Republican establishment and their so called conservative pundits on TV and the internet. He succeeded before and they knew he would succeed again.
    The Republican leadership in the House have abandoned the country and Constitution they swore to uphold and defend. They are no better than Obama and need to be replaced.
