Obama: Congress Is Supposed to Represent Me, Not the American People
***Snip***

In a speech today at the G20 Summit in Russia, President Barack Obama stated that members of Congress should listen to their voters but ultimately should act on their own, against their constituency, in order to make a decision that is “right for America.”

Obama made this revealing statement after a journalist asked, “One of your closest allies in the House said yesterday, ‘When you’ve got 97 percent of your constituents saying no, it’s kind of hard to say yes.’ Why should members of Congress go against the will of their constituents and support your decision on this?”

“Now, with respect to Congress and how they should respond to constituency concerns, you know, I do consider it part of my job to help make the case and to explain to the American people exactly why I think this is the right thing to do,” Obama said. “It’s conceivable that at the end of the day, I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do and then each member of Congress is gonna have to decide, if I think it’s the right thing to do for America’s national security and the world’s national security, then how do I vote?”

“And you know what? That’s — that’s what you’re supposed to do as a member of Congress. Ultimately, you listen to your constituents, but you’ve also got to make some decisions about what you believe is right for America.”

In short, Obama will try to influence Americans into supporting his war, but failing that, Congress is supposed to just ignore the vast majority of voters against the war and approve military action in Syria.

As Obama implied, members of Congress should represent themselves rather than the voters who placed them in office, especially when Obama’s aims run contrary to the demands of the American people.

This is right in line with a senior State Department official’s earlier statement that “the president’s decision to take military action in Syria still stands, and will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes next week to approve the use of such force.”

This is tyranny, folks.

Kinda old news but look at this:
[link to www.whitehouse.gov]

"The head of each agency (..) is delegated the authority of the President (..) to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation..."

What do you call it when employed without compensation? Slavery.

There's other really annoying language in that E.O.

Of course, this all can only happen in the event of a National Emergency, right?

Well, guess what, boys and girls? Last year he did just that.

What this means to say is that congressmen have a few days to recollect every last nuance of scandal that certain henchmen can hold over their head to convice them to vote in favor of war.

Re: Obama: Congress Is Supposed to Represent Me, Not the American People
President Obama today refused to rule out attacking Syria without the backing of Congress, as new polls show he faces a crushing defeat in any vote in the House of Representatives.

**** SNIP*** from DRUDGE Report today.


An ABC News reporter at the G20 meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia, tried to pin him down and get a 'direct response' to the question of what he will do if his gamble seeking congressional approval fails.

'I'm not going to engage in parlor games now ... about whether or not it's going to pass,' he said.

'You're not getting a direct response.'


But while he acknowledged knowing his Syria gambit with Congress was 'going to be a heavy lift' all along, the president insisted that he didn't 'put this before Congress just as a political ploy or as symbolism.'

'I put it before Congress because I could not honestly claim that the threat posed by Assad's use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians and women and children posed an imminent, direct threat to the United States.'


Obama also announced that he will make his case on Syria to the American people again on Tuesday in a national address.

I don't know why you are so surprised, they did the same thing with Obamacare and what happened? The people re-elected him. He probably thinks if he does this against the people they will make him dictator for life.

They are saying that rather than embarrass the president the House will not vote at all? They had better damn well vote we pay them to take a stand on issues such as this. Congress does not get a pass....

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

BREAKING: Dem Congressman Charges Obama With Syrian Intelligence Scandal

***Snip***
Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, once among the most ardent supporters of the Obama White House, is breaking ranks and calling out the Obama administration for manipulating intelligence data in order to convince lawmakers to allow military action against Syria. While such accusations have been whispered for day behind closed doors, Grayson is among the first lawmakers to make them public, and the accusation itself is possibly the most serious ever leveled against the administration among a member of the president’s own political party.

Rep. Alan Grayson: Syria Intelligence Manipulated

Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country’s two-year civil war.
