Obama: ‘ A supporter suggests I proclaim a State of Emergency”


Did a supporter suggest Obama  proclaim a State of Emergency or was it Valerie Jarrett to have his way? Or was it a stream of consciousness running through his head? At least not for now Mr.President?

“I was in a meeting earlier today and somebody asked, you know, Mr. President, what can you do, these folks, they just — all they do is just oppose whatever you propose even if they used to be for it, now they’re against it; if you said the sky was blue, they’d say it was green; they deny the facts, they don’t have any ideas for growing the economy or helping the middle class — maybe you just need to announce a state of emergency. I said, well, now, I’m not going to do that, that’s not how the Constitution works.”

In 2014, President Obama has made much of his pen-and-a-phone strategy to accomplish his goals in the face of what he calls an “unprecedented pattern of obstruction” from Republicans in Congress. Apparently the president’s supporters are on board with the idea of unilateral executive action. At a meeting last Friday, a supporter of the president asked about the possibility of “a state of emergency.” The president relayed the story to another groups of supporters at a Democratic National Committee event later in the day at a private residence in Purchase, New York.

Of course, “how the Constitution works” is at the heart of the dispute between the president and Republicans in the House who recently voted to move forward with a lawsuit against the president for overstepping his constitutional authority. Interestingly, regardless of how seriously President Obama took his supporter’s question, he went on to tell his audience “there’s actually a solution to this that our Founders envisioned.” Ed: Of course we know he prefers the pen and phone.

    Great comments….to a provocative question. Ya, I think Obama’s testing the water when he says ridiculous things like that. He apparently doesn’t know the Constitution at all…who’d have thought we’d ever get in THIS deep?

    Yes, “These folks” used to definitely be “My Fellow Americans” Heck, we’re lucky he didn’t say “these JOKERS” because it’s what he intimates in press conferences so much. He belittles the Conservatives so badly; I’m not sure that’s ever been quite so pronounced before in a president. I KNOW no pres has ever said “I” or “As Commander in Chief” as much as this one.

      So far he hasn’t said “Hey, Whitey”! Coming soon no doubt. I love when he goes into his black lingo like he did on Labor Day with the Unions. That is what is is, no more no less than a community organizer.

    Since when did Obama care what the Constitution had to say, something is not right with this story but I think you are right: this has Jarrett written all over it…

      As Paladin said before, testing the waters. Only a matter of time my friend.

    He’s putting it out there to test the waters. If one examines this President and his henchmen, you can discern a pattern evolving. He said that he wanted a civilian security force that was as well equipped and armed as the U.S. military, he and his cronies have said “never let an emergency go to waste,” he has standing orders to the U.S. military to be used against the civilian population, and now he is talking about declaring a state of emergency. What he wants to know is if he can get away with it.

    He wants to know if his lapdogs in the media will support him like they have on other schemes of his. He wants to know if there will be blowback from an outraged public. He wants to know if the Democrats will support this violation of the United States Constitution. He is not the first Democrat to seek an end run around that document. Franklin Delano Roosevelt once sought to increase the Supreme Court to 24 members before his blatant power play was stopped by an outraged public who correctly identified his intent to stack the court in his favor.

    Our Republic is unraveling before our very eyes and if we do not wake up soon, we will no longer live in the U.S.A., but the United Socialist States of America. One third of Americans are on government assistance, we have outspent the previous administration by a factor of four, and we are set to add debt the likes of which no nation upon this Earth has ever seen before with Obamacare. Six year later and America now knows what fundamental change looks like.

    With people like Bill Maher and Woody Allen calling for tyranny and advisors like the Karl Marx loving Valerie Jarrett pulling the strings of the President, our very freedoms are directly threatened. You don’t test the waters unless you want to implement a plan. This is the path of the Democrats and they do not love liberty. Be wary.

      I am with you. The press has run a couple of stories of various people running up this particular flag.The world is unraveling equally. It is the 1930’s all over again. America is turning to isolationism. Even some of my favorite bloggers are fading away, weary of war. Anyone who has any interest in history knows where we are headed, and as you say, massively, before our eyes. I thank my parents and relatives of the Greatest Generation willing to sacrifice so our generation could enjoy a wonderful life. We owe the same to our Children.

    “… these folks” = use to be “my fellow Americans” – even Nixon stated that (identification) before lying. ‘Folks’ is a terminology of no real distinction (my fellow global citizens).
    “… they just oppose whatever you propose” => that’s because ‘whatever’ isn’t American, NOR does it grow the economy, just the opposite.
    It’s a flipping of truth, using misconstrued thought/word manipulation. Continual double-speak.
    He’s purposely destroying the economy, he’s the ‘slave buffer’ to bring this country and it’s people unwilling to WW3 under the guise of rectifying something (the false flags THEY’ve initiated) … to protect and ‘serve’ the central bankers (because they’ve devalued the US dollar and countries don’t want to use it anymore – no gold to back it up.
    He’s a farce and anything that comes out of his mouth is contrives and deadly He’s a skinny viper. Hiding.
    He and his “ARE the state of Emergency!”

      It sure is a grim place we are in. His other statement over the weekend was,”The world is a messy place”. Yes, thousands being slaughtered makes for a mess. Sickening.

    Isn’t that the same he said to La Raza a year or so ago on immigration reform? Of course he went ahead and ignored the constitution.
