The Obama Administration’s Paranoia
“[CNN’s] Jessica [Yellin], I am not a dictator, I’m the president,” [Obama] said while speaking to reporters in the White House Press Briefing Room.
Do you remember that? It isn’t the first time Obama lamented that he’s not a dictator, or an emperor. However, his history has shown that when he says something, he generally means the opposite. I’m not sure if the man can tell the truth from his lies anymore.
At a recent dinner for kids who had won a recipe contest, when asked what his favorite food was, he immediately said “broccoli”.
Far be it for me to suggest he’s full of shit, but this is the man who eats steaks with wine, burgers, pizza, donuts, excuse me, pastries, and hot dogs. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t eat healthier foods, but come on, broccoli your favorite food? Seriously?
No reports if his pants actually caught on fire.
Last week, Obama pushed back the employer mandate of his signature healthcare law, but left the citizens in the lurch. We are still required to comply with the mandate, but Obama’s corporate masters aren’t.
The truth is, Obama doesn’t have the power to arbitrarily suspend laws, or not enforce ones he doesn’t like, or rewrite them, for that matter.
Article II, section 3 of the United States Constitution specifically states:
…he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…
So, when Congress failed to pass the Dream Act, it is not within the President’s authority to issue an executive order that suspends immigration enforcement for conditions that exactly mimic the Dream Act.
When Obama signed Obamacare into law, that did not give him the authority to suspend or delay portions of it.
It’s just another sign that Obamacare is not working, and it isn’t even off the starting block yet.
Even the English, back in 1689, didn’t put up with the King arbitrarily suspending laws. In the English Bill of Rights, Parliament wrote:
Going beyond the mere suspension of laws he doesn’t want to enforce, the IRS is doing the bidding of someone in the administration in intimidating political opponents, and the government has decided it needs to investigate itself.
The NSA is spying on us, with the permission of a secret court that Obama swears is transparent.
Now there are more revelations that are even more chilling.
In Obama’s War on Whistleblowers, he has now ordered Federal workers to spy on each other.
That’s right, Big Brother is watching, and if he isn’t available, your co-workers are.
While I normally don’t care what Federal workers do to each other, ordering them to watch each other and report “suspicious” behavior, with penalties if you don’t report something, is bizarre. It seems like something a paranoid schizophrenic would do.
That’s what it all comes down to. This administration has become very paranoid.
Aren’t they creating a hostile work environment? Suddenly, staying late at the office to finish a report due the next day is considered “suspicious” behavior.
Tyrants always tend to be paranoid. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin. All paranoid.
It has already been shown that Obama is a sociopath. Here are some of the signs of a sociopath. How many apply to this president?
- Glibness and Superficial Charm
- Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
- Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
- Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
- Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
- Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
- Incapacity for Love
- Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
- Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
- Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
- Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
- Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
- Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
- Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
Other Related Qualities:
- Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
- Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
- Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
- Conventional appearance
- Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
- Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life
- Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim’s affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
- Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
- Incapable of real human attachment to another
- Unable to feel remorse or guilt
- Extreme narcissism and grandiose
- May state readily that their goal is to rule the world
Some of these may be debatable, as we will never really know for sure, but many are based on the perception of the man. Does he really feel empathy for the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook shooting, or does he just see them as a means to an end?
He wants to tax and regulate certain businesses into oblivion, while raising the costs on the citizens.
Yet he wants to prevent confusion on employers by illegally delaying implementing some of the provisions on Obamacare, while continuing to stick it to the citizenry by requiring they purchase insurance anyway.
How can he get away with such tactics? Because Congress doesn’t call him on it. Oh, sure, they whine, bitch, complain and kvetch about it, but do nothing to put him in his place.
We have often been told that the President is the most powerful man in the world. He shouldn’t be, and by the standards of the Constitution, he doesn’t have much power at all. Most of the power that are exercised by Presidents today have been stolen from Congress.
We have had troops in Iraq and Afghanistan for years, but never a declaration of war. Korea, Vietnam, Iraq I, no declaration of war.
Congress loses its power because it doesn’t exercise them.
That’s how the executive power grows, by stepping in where Congress fears to go.
That’s exactly what Obama has been doing. If Congress won’t act, he will, despite the fact that he doesn’t have the Constitutional authority to do so.
Even if Congress acts, he still does what he wants, despite the fact that he doesn’t have the Constitutional authority to do so.
He builds on what the last President did, even though he and his followers decried it as evil and eroding our civil liberties before he took office.
He is so paranoid of the people, that he, and Congress, are trying to take our rights away from us.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
This government has become destructive to those ends, under the guise of “protecting” us.
I like my rights. I cherish my rights, and am loathe to give them up.
In today’s political climate, that would be considered “unreasonable”.
