The Imperial Presidency

Mon, Mar 2, 2015 - 7:38pm

After finding no resistance to his "executive action" on such issues as illegal immigration and ammunition sales, President Woody II is about to boldly go in a direction we should have expected all along.

No, were not talking about martial law...yet. Instead, at today's daily White House press briefing, we learned this:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is "very interested" in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

"The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans," Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

"Now I don't want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of," Earnest continued. "But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally," Earnest finished.

Full link here:

So, there you have it. When there is no opposition...when the two political parties are simply differing wings of the same party...this is what you get. There is no "Constitution" and there are no silly, arcane notions such as "separation of powers" and "checks and balances". Instead, you have an imperial presidency, where the chief executive dictates by fiat and imposes his will, unhinged from the rule of law.

What does this have to do with the metals, you ask? Everything! Ownership of physical precious metal has always been...and always will investment in your personal economic freedom. I urge you to acquire some/more today, before some future "executive action" takes away your right to do so.

Who is in charge?

Well that's an important question. The recent decay of rights traces to the Patriot Act of 2001, where even a cursory reading revealed what was in store.

I am however surprised at how more rapidly things have moved since 2008 and how it's leaking into Canada. I still think Obama doesn't have the stomach for it, which he exhibited with his abysmal performance in the first debate prior to his reelection to a second term.

The resolution, as I see it, will not be revolt per se but a devolution of powers to the state and city level.

Does it matter who is in charge since their aim is clear?

Pres. Obama is not really in charge of anything.

@ infometron,

​As best as I can determine, the government was effectively hijacked when Wilson signed the Federal Reserve act in 1913, although a lot of pieces had to be put in place prior to that in order to make such a treasonous act possible.

Early presidents would occasionally wage war with the central bankers, many of them died for trying.

Apparently, going against the Rothschilds banking cartel catering you a death penalty, even if you are an American president.

The last president who attempted to separate the United States from the tyranny of the Federal Reserve system was JFK, and that didn't work out very well for him.

I think Reagan made some attempts at restoring justice, but his vice president was very well-connected in the CIA, which is also owned by the central banks, and a assassination attempt was made.

Since Poppa Bush took office, the banks have been running this country virtually unopposed.

I think when Ron Paul left Congress, the very last vestige of central banking opposition left office.

Now the United States federal government is owned lock stock and barrel by the central banks.

Now the Rothschilds had a plan for a “one world government, one that they had complete control over, through the money supply. For that to happen, the United States had to be destroyed as a sovereign nation, since it would be the only possible opposition. The plan to destroy the United States went into overdrive under Bush Senior, then Clinton started off shoring all of our manufacturing base, so this country effectively produces nothing anymore, then baby Bush signed the completely unconstitutional “patriot act” as a way to route all Americans of their constitutional rights, and continue to bankrupt the country.

President Obama took office with the implicit task of destroying the dollar, destroying all United States alliances, with the possible exception of the royal crown, who is clearly working for “The city of London”..

For all intents and purposes, humanity has been enslaved throughout all of recorded history, it was only with the institution of the United States founding documents, and the United States Constitution where men were actually free to determine their own destiny for the first time in human history.

President Obama, who is really a communist foreign national, has consistently made each and every decision with malevolent intent for the United States.

Unfortunately, all other layers of government are also in on the scam by now, and with a bought and paid for press corps, electronic voting machines that leave no trail, this will not be fixed through a democratic process.

Obama's puppet masters are currently working tirelessly to start World War III, and collapse the global economy. Simultaneously, they are doing what they can to provoke a civil war within the United States, so that any organized opposition can be made an example of, and promptly annihilated.

As United States citizens, our best course of action would be to educate our fellow Americans as to our current dilemma, and to institute a national policy of noncompliance with all federal laws and mandates.

They do not have nearly enough manpower to maintain a police state, particularly if those police themselves knew they were only working towards the enslavement of their fellow man.

We have been researching this on “dots” for years, those whom we refer to as the powers that be, or even “the evil umpire”, date back to the origins of man, so we effectively do not know it to be any other way.

There are currently three separate entities, that are controlled by the ruling elite. They all have their own independent and sovereign territories within other nations, one is “the city of London”, which rules all the finances, the other is Washington DC which provides the military might to vanquish all that oppose them, and the third, is Vatican City to give the other two “God's blessing”. They apply mind control from an entirely different angle. Have you never noticed that the pope and Obama agree on everything?

At these levels, national boundaries, and religious affiliations are meaningless. They are only used as tools by the puppet masters to divide and conquer the populace. That is the only purpose for their existence in the first place.

Anyway, a lot of the pieces of this puzzle are starting to break away, such as the United States military no longer answers to Obama, they know that he is an enemy of the United States, and although Obama can talk about sending troops into war, it actuality, it won't happen.

Also, he no longer has access to our nuclear arsenal. He has already tried to use it against his own country.

The bankers are getting desperate, but in my own estimation, I do not think a new world order is possible, since it can only be built on lies and deceit, and there are far too many global leaders with somewhat more integrity than our own, who will not sell their own citizens into slavery.

It will look the darkest before the light.

Keep stacking.


For a pretty small investment in time, a lot of the answers are right here:

Obama's Dictatoresque Destiny

When Obama was young his mother allowed him to be mentored by her close friend Frank Marshall Davis who was a strong advocate of communism (and the author of sex books? ok..).

Apparently the radical communist mentoring had such a profound effect on the young boy that he actually grew up to physically resemble Frank Marshall Davis, as people are often prone to do right? sure.

So it should be perfectly understandable if it might seem like Obama hates the One Nation Under God United States of America and works to promote the image of Vladimir Putin and Communism. Surely all those who voted for him can see the consistency in character and adherence to life's teachings in what we have today.

So many things like that just have a way of naturally showing up here and there...

@Mr. Fix Re: Who is in charge?

Your posts are always thought provoking.

Do you think Obama is in charge? Did you think Bush was, or Clinton?

If not, then whom? Just wondering what is really behind the teleprompter...

Mar 2, 2015 - 10:39pm

Mr Fix I got to hand it to you and Marchas45, I was out doing community service, keeping eighteen 16 and 17 year old boys active and off the streets, and our good communities daughters safe. A thankless job but it must be done You are not quitting on me are you, now that you are in striking distance lol Silver66

Mr. Fix

Only second?

But I've got so much to say…

The Teleprompter in chief, is the undisputed tyrannical dictator who rules with impunity over all American slaves.

By the way, I did see this coming!

And 0h, By the Way, there will be no economic freedom whatsoever, as long as he is in charge.

He has already decreed that his government can confiscate anything it wishes, and that most certainly includes either your stack, or anything you might wish to purchase with one.

Just like “you didn't build that”,

you don't own anything either, not even yourself.

And, this is a long way from over, if we wish to actually have economic freedom, we are going to have to win the second Revolutionary war first.

Just thought you should know.

Mar 2, 2015 - 7:55pm

Mar 2, 2015 - 7:54pm
