Seeking to Bypass Congress, Obama Wants Sole Authority Over Military

In an attempt to seize total control over national security and bypass congress, a frightening new step by the Obama Administration is coming into play. As noted in Friday’s Wall Street Journal in an op-ed by John Bolton and John Woo, a State Department advisory group that is run by former Secretary of Defense William Perry is advising that the U.S. and Russia both reduce nuclear weapons without a treaty, as a treaty would require ratification by Congress. This would allow Obama and his executive branch to unilaterally cut our nuclear weaponry and ignore the treaty clause of the Constitution.

As Bolton and Woo point out, the US has a greater global responsibility than Russia; Iran and North Korea, neither of which is far from Russian interests, can only be countered by U.S. military strength. In addition, they note that Russia is not a trustworthy partner in weapons reduction; it has violated many arms-control agreements, such as the 1991 Presidential Nuclear Initiatives.

    This piece of scum wants our country to fall. Wake up America.

    • Clark Mixon says:

      Amen. We now have a new Hitler in the whitehouse. Of course our 47 pct moochers couldn’t care less.

      • bobwhite1935 says:

        It’s probably more than 47% if you include the illegal aliens getting free aid in this country. Impeach this dictator, Congress before it’s too late. Also vote down Feinsteins bill to un-arm US citizens & her trying do away with our 2nd Amendment rights.

      • lUIS R VAZQUEZ says:

        No only a new Hitler. We have Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro and Chavez, all in one body

  2. TexasOlTimer says:

    Obama wants complete control over our military and has already asked for complete control of the debt ceiling bypassing Congress. No President in history has asked for such dictatorial powers. The Executive Orders he has issued already give him more power to control everything in this country including your rain barrel and car if he (and it’s his decision) declares a national emergency for any reason. If this doesn’t give us fair warning of the intention of this President, then we’re hiding our heads in the sand. Wake up, America, before it’s too late!

    • DrAnalog says:

      You are right. Obama, by executive order, gave pay raises to Congress and Government employess which are now mostly unionized. I always thought that those things need to originate in the House, but I guess not if you are the new dictator of a banana republic,

    • Remington 870 says:

      The cowering GOP Congress will do nothing to protect our country. Boehner and his band of extinct RINOs will cave in to Obama and his thugs. Do not forget the voter fraud in this election and when 2014 elections get here, the voter fraud will be so rampant..the Commie Dems will retake the House from the sleeping GOP, at which time Obama will finish reshaping America into a third world communist dictatorship.

      • Sam W says:

        WHAT elections; do you think obamy will risk any loss of power due to an election? Start preparing for a slip into the socialist party of obamy. The supreme dictator in chief. What fools voted for this tyrant the last time around?

      • God, I don’t know if I needed to be told that this beast has his fingers on the nuclear trigger. I don’t believe the Russians scared me as much.

    • 57girl says:

      Google Martial Law. The ‘rights’ of the Government to seize property, should Martial Law be declared, is now right nauseating. We should have put a stop to the Government’s power seizure, years ago.

    • Rick says:

      Hard for America to wake up with the media that we have, ppl just have no clue to what this president is doing…..

    • American says:

      it is too late

  4. cheryl says:

    It’s plain that the president is making moves that will allow him to become a dictator. He plans on bringing this country to its knees. There may have to be a revolution in this country to stop this mad man.

    • caskinner says:

      I believe it is going to be up to the citizens. Congress is not doing their job. Impeachment???

    • Sam W says:

      I hope OUR military folks have a true vested interest in the United States of America versus the Socialist States of Obama

    • rcbobj says:

      Are you kidding, there will be a revolution. They are coming for the guns and don’t think for one minute they are not. There is one thing they are not thinking about though. There are about 200,000,000 people with guns in this country. There will be one hell of a war right here.

  5. Dingbat36 says:

    Hmmmmm…………I thought the President was supposed to be the Commander in Chief, not the “Dictator” in Chief.

    So tell me, just how many of our men and women in the military will obey orders to stand against the people of the USA if push comes to shove? I doubt there will be many, these good people know the difference between allegiance to a legally qualified sitting President and an imposter who has never presented any credible evidence of his eligibility to hold the office he has stolen! I am also sure they see how he and his administration treat returning veterans…………..remember that crud Obama spewed about veterans paying for their own treatment of war induced injuries inflicted during battle?

    • Susan says:

      They will because their livelyhood will depend upon it. They have families to take care of so no, they will not stand with the people – they will stand with Obama.

      • Carl Stevenson says:

        I don’t think so … Too many rednecks in the military, who won’t shoot uncle Billy and aunt Wilma because they refuse to give up their guns.
        High officers, maybe, but enlisted? During Nam quite a few bad officers had untimely accidents.

      • Sam W says:

        That’s sad then, WHAT do they tell their children?

    • Jack Vier says:

      All members of the military took an oath to defend the Constitution not to defend the government. The UCMJ also states the members of the military can refuse to obey an illegal order.
      It is too bad that congress does not have the spine to charge him with treason and find him guilty. There is only one sentence for treason.

  7. Flamingogal says:

    This is what happens when America elects a person who is not an American.

  8. Jsnh says:

    Isn’t he already bypassing, controlling and dictating whatever he wants? I thought the reason we have the different branches of government was so no one branch could have full control of legislation. When will I hear that Congress has successfully prevented him from getting whatever he wants?

  9. mickey says:

    What are we waiting for? This radical/socialistic nutcase Obama has got to be IMPEACHED/THROWN OUT, & JAILED, for all his treasonous actions against the U.S. Can’t everybody see what this Illegal/Muslim is trying to do? Why does he want to have control over the military, and the financing, and many other things? He is an idealist/radical/nutcase/, and he’s hell bent on destroying America. How can our congress let this one man undo all the good of our nation. Why are we allowing this criminal a second term, he didn’t win it fairly, and he’s not even legal to be in this office to begin with. Down with the whole Obama administration, and good ridance, to all who oppose our American way of life. Obama should be taken out ASAP.

  10. Jack Vier says:

    He is taking one step at a time to become a total dictator. I believe that he thinks the American Patriots will just roll over if he gets total control of the government. He had better get his head out of the sand. A vast majority of the american public are patriots and will defend the Constitution. Also Hitler did the same thing. Be wary of this person.

    • Jsnh says:

      Congress has the power to stop much of his overreach. When will they do their job?

      • Sam W says:

        WHERE IS CONGRESS? Remember this IF there is ANOTHER election. This is what happens when you allow FRAUD in the general election.

      • jim_wright says:

        We don’t have a congress at the moment. We have a bunch of leftist and a bunch of RINOs with a few Tea Party very few patriots or people with guts.

  11. del says:

    No NO NO we dont need to give the fraud more power over anything….He needs to be put away as does all of his executive orders!

  12. taterpickings says:

    Not “NO!” But Hell “NO”…..

  13. JuneUSA says:


  14. The second amendment may loom large in the next year or two.

  15. Are you aware that on January 6th Congress meets to confirm Obama’s election? Are you aware that if a representative and senator challenge Obama’s eligibility it will be held up?

    Contact your rep and senator………demand they challenge Obama’s eligibility in writing.

    The Constitution requires a Natural Born Citizen only be President. When the framers wrote it they consulted Emmerich Vattel’s book Law of Nations that describes Natural Born Citizen as a child born with both parents citizens. Obama readily admits his father was a british subject when he was born and in fact was a dual citizen at birth.

    If you really want to get rid of Obama contact your rep and senator demanding they challenge Obama.
