WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
I have been a little absent … focusing more on actions, doing rather than writing. I always felt as if I may have been the only person reading my posts, that I was “chicken little” and the sky wouldn’t fall, and that maybe I was reading too much into “events” as they happened. I questioned my ability to put the events into perspective and certainly questioned my ability to persuade. I rarely and warily watch the news anymore as it relates to the presidential election on November 6.
I did the whole "support Chick fil A day" and Ted Cruz won, so I was feeling pretty good. And then, I received this email. WTF? Hit me over the head with a sledgehammer. HELLOOOOO AMERICA! Isn’t this what I have been screaming from the top of my lungs. With the additional vote today, INCLUDING HOUSE REPUBLICANS, I MIGHT ADD, voting to eliminate Senate confirmation for 169 presidential appointments” passed. WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAT???!!! We are at the crossroads.
Mark Levin was livid when he read that House Republicans had voted to eliminate the Senate confirmation process for the reported number of 169 presidential appointments. And the explanation he got from a couple of sources was that Romney had told Republicans to vote for it, so they did. Levin wonders if we are already going back to the days of George W. Bush when House and Senate members voted a certain way to support the president instead of the Constitution.
First here’s the background:
WASHINGTON POST– The House Tuesday evening passed a measure to improve the clogged presidential appointee confirmation process by eliminating 169 jobs from requiring Senate approval.
The positions in that category, such as assistant secretaries for public affairs or for administration or management, are ones that rarely spark partisan Senate battles.
The Senate has already changed its rules to place another 270 or so nominees in a “streamlined”category where, if no senator objects, the nominee would bypass laborious committee hearings and go directly to the Senate floor for a vote.
That second category includes jobs such as chief financial officers or assistant secretaries for legislative affairs at various agencies.
All told, those actions, which also affect some 3,000 members of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Public Health Services Corps, would streamline or reduce confirmation requirements for about 30 percent of the positions now needing committee hearings and Senate floor votes.
“The legislation is going to benefit whoever is our next president,” said Max Stier, president and CEO of the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, which led the effort to reform the broken confirmation process.
And do you really think Cass Sunstein will really go silently into the night or will he be like Van Jones and move to a high-paying job in the Soros network? Ditto for his wife, Samantha Waters … remember her “The Responsibility to Protect” adopted by the UN, for some countries, but not for others? http://yourdaddy.net/2011/04/03/george-soros-the-responsibiltiy-to-...
And then the threat of bozo actually giving amnesty to the illegal aliens just before the election (probably in time to register!), but that would probably be over-kill. Deferred action, amnesty … they are just words, and quite frankly, I don’t think it matters anymore.
I left Restoring Love with a goal and a commitment to make a difference. I feel as if I were sucker-punched. Why? Because the following memo is true … every single last word. So what are we to do? What are you going to do?
I feel as if I were cold-cocked, water-boarded just before they pulled out my fingernails and I am p*ssed off as the line in the sand moves ever-backward.

I was sitting at my keyboard halfway through my writing a letter to you about how Barack Obama was fulfilling his pledge to "Transform America" by "Changing the fundamentals of America", so that our government would become the plantation, he the owner, and we the slaves, when this article by Steve McCann appeared in my in box. After checking it for accuracy, and finding it so, I put my writing on hold and here present it to you, for I could not say it better … Is it already too late?
*Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans*
The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind.
The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was *dedicated to putting in place executive power* to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America " in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.
The most significant accomplishment of Obama's first term is to make Congress irrelevant. 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. During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a *myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred* virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.
*The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration.*
This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write. For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they "shall" do something and more than 200 times when they "may" take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the "Secretary determines." In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.
The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation's financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack obama and his radical associates.
Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress.
The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others. None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. *The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse* unless stopped in its early stages.
It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.
Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago-style political tactics.
The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack obama and his fellow leftists.
The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten *government shutdowns* but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.
Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.
Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.
Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. *That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated.. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.
The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.
What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them.
Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.
May 12, 2011
I would add but 6 words to those above mentioned, Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney, to say "and we the American people also," must come to grips with this moment in time and our role in denying Barack Obama his lifelong goal of "transforming" us into his slaves working on his government plantation.
Please forward this to all you can, maybe together we can save America for ourselves and those who will follow after us.
May God bless America.
Hiya Terminator Girl. Welcome back. I share your concerns about the crazy appointment shenanigans. I've been following Obama's appointments to the U.S. Mrshals Service since he usurped office and the dots do connect. Not just a chicken little sky's falling concern. Your alertness has always been of interest though I may not have shown it I for one do welcome what you've pointed out.
Stock up and keep your eyes wide open! This is going to get real ugly real soon. I feel it in my gut and it makes want to puke, then weep over the cost of such a horrific outcome!
God, please forgive us, hear our cry, heal our land and let this cup pass from us! I ask it now in Jesus Name, Amen!
My God turn his face to us and not away as it is now. we HAVE to get right with God. Not just each of us, but as a WHOLE COUNTRY! As Always, " I live my life, that when my feet hit the floor in the morning, the devil and muslims say " OH CRAP!!! HE IS AWAKE!!! "
80 Tea Party House Conservatives were not enough to Scare Democrats or get attention of the Republicans we need 5 Senators in 12 election cycle
Terminator Girl, I have appreciated your "reporting", do not give in to discouragement.
The sheer arrogance of Borak's certainty of his reelection convinces me that "the cartel" goes deeper than any of us think.
Never give in, never give up, never give out.
Taking control of the House and senate is meanless unless we defeat Obama. He will just shove more executive orders down our throats just like giving 1.5 million illegals green cards.Who is going to stop him? Also, there may be two appointments to the supreme court in the next 4 years. Do you want to see more more left-wing liberals on the court that would rubber stamp Obama's actions. Both of his current appointments voted for Obamacare,clearly un-constitutional.
I don't like Romney, but he 100% better than Obama. A vote for a third party candiate or writing in Ron Paul is just another vote for Obama.
Ditto Vote out Obama & the Democrats then sort out the Republicans after.
VOTE!!! YEA RIGHT,,WHAT A JOKE,,NOT GONNA HAPPEN IN THESE DAYS,,,HAND...WILLIAM...
The new Supreme Court under bozo with his new appointees will look more like Hitler with his henchmen; Hermann Goering, Joseph Goebbels, Franz Stangl, Adolf Eichmann, Joseph Mengele ... the vilest of men who put themselves above God and law. The landscape of the US will change forever. Even Gerrmany never truly recovered its identity after these monsters were defeated.
Remember One thing, If Obama gets Re-elected (I pray he doesn't) there is a good chance he will have the chance to appoint two more left-wing unqualified socialist-communist to the Supreme Count. If that happens, you can kiss our country, as we know it, goodby.I may not like Romney, but I voting for him. He is a Hell a lot better than left-wing, liberal, socialist-communist Obama.
