President Obama's Weekend News

While some of us were celebrating spring break, and some of us were celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, and I personally was deep-breathing through the acute stage of advanced tooth decay ('cos my dentist warned me years ago that the cavity underneath a nice tight filling was trying to grow back, but as long as the filling was tight and the tooth didn't hurt I've ignored it, and last weekend it caught up with me)...and the White House staff was hosting the traditional egg roll:

...What was the President himself actually up to? Yet another attempt to undermine the U.S. Constitution, that's what. Karen Bracken reports (edited for formatting):

"
People this is really bad. Like we don't have enough fraud in our system already. This is a blatant attempt to manipulate the voting in America. Think about other countries run by Dictators……….who runs/owns the election process??
Thursday, as many Americans prepared for a three day weekend, Obama signed an Executive Order that can alter the course of all future elections.
In it, he established the Presidential Commission of Election Administration. The 9 members are appointed by the President. Their mission includes:
  • establishing the number, location, management, operation and design of polling places
  • the training and recruitment of poll workers
  • accessibility for overseas and uniformed voters
  • voting machine technology
  • management of Provisional ballots
  • management of Absentee ballots
Consider this: Most of Obama's power-grabs were initiated via Federal Agencies. A strong incoming president could unravel much of his work. If BHO controls the election process, there is little left for the future but totalitarianism.
Most Americans do not know about the order or what it means. Please:
1. Contact everyone you know and let them see what the WH is up to. Don't talk about politics, just that this is a bad overreach of authority for any president, regardless of political party.
2. Call, call, call your representatives and state public officials:
To contact your local news media, use search words: "contact local new media [your town and state]"
YES, EXECUTIVE ORDERS CAN BE STOPPED!!!
We were able to force Bill Clinton to suspend, then replace EO 13083, an order that attempted to grab states' rights by re-defining Federalism.
Here is how it was done.
The House and Senate can pass a bill overriding the EO and then have a 2/3 majority to override the president's veto. Obviously, this is not likely today, But, it can work if public opinion is also overwhelmingly against the president.
We can garner public opinion by pointing out that once the Executive branch assumes control of the election process, any incoming president can then use his powers to alter any election. The public does not want presidents with that kind of power.
Stopping the EO:
Like Obama's pre-holiday release, Clinton signed his EO while in Birmingham, England. The low profile attempt worked since most Americans and even congress knew little of his move. But, representatives Ron Paul (TX) and Bob Barr (GA) sponsored counter legislation bringing the EO to the public's attention.
At the same time, Big Seven” organizations of state and local governments: the National Governors Association, National Conference of State Legislatures, the Council of State Governments, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties and the International City/County Management Association joined forces and sent a letter to Clinton demanding he rescind EO 13083. (We must notify these groups!!!)

Several media picked up on Pauls' bill and the state actions and the story began to spread.
In 1998-99, there were marches across the country over 13083. We need to notify every media outlet and every neighbor of Obama's order. Clinton eventually backed off of his EO.
Another avenue to repeal is for Congress to deny the funds necessary to fund the EO. My guess is Obama has ample money he can shuffle from other agencies to fund whatever this without Congress.

Gentle Readers, we like Barack Obama as a person; he seems so nice and low-key and likeable. And we respect the office of the President of the United States; what we're calling for is more, not less, respect for our Constitutional system. But we need, in an ethical and respectful way, to oppose this administration...probably more than any other administration, with an arguable exception for FDR's, has ever needed to be opposed. We are not convinced that President Obama won last year's election by a genuine popular vote. We suspect that allowing him to oversee, even at second hand, the next election, will prevent any future election from being won by a genuine popular vote, and will establish a fascist dictatorship.

Remember the old song..."Oppose, oppose, oppose, oppose, for free America!"
