Executive Orders: "Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool." Or, "Stroke your pen on this, asshole, and watch what happens."

"Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool." -- Clintonista Paul Begala, New York Times, July 5, 1998, referring to executive orders.

Tip of the boonie hat to Pete at WRSA and Ulsterman for bringing this to my attention.

It seems the Center for American Progress, funded by "spooky dude" George Soros and run by Clintonista John Podesta -- yes, the same people who gave the stage to Bill Clinton to denounce us back on 19 April -- are giving the Egomaniac-in-Chief the word on how much damage he can still do with executive orders.

Uh, huh.

If I may paraphrase Paul Begala, "Strokes of the pen. Cracks of bullets. Death of a tyrannical regime. Better than cool."

Or, if you prefer the Dogtown Rangers' COL Robert "Mad Bob" REDACTED's version from 1998, "Stroke your pen on this, asshole, and watch what happens."

Well, let's see. The instructions to the progressive/fascist president, from the progressive/fascist billionaire, together with the progressive/fascist Homeland Security chief, add in the newly nominated Chicago thug BATFAE director.

Now add in the history of the Bush I ban of certain weapons by executive order based on their cosmetics, add in the Clinton executive orders to BATFAE to decrease gun dealers, neither of which were recinded by Bush II,
you have a recipe for a huge leap in lawless government.

So, I ask, what are y'all going to do about it? Listen to Mike Gallagher suck Bush II's hind tit?

I can already think of a few things that he would be pressured to implement this with...

I turned in some "homework" the other day. Was it received?

Sting's song "Russians," adapted:

In Europe and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria...
Obama said we will bury you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Leftists love their children too ...

There is no monopoly in common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Leftists love their children too

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the President
There's no such thing as a winnable war
It's a lie that we don't believe anymore
Mr. Boehner says we will protect you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Leftists love their children too.

A well-known Hollywood publicist was shot to death just after some premiere or other. The H'wood community has come together to offer a big reward for information.
Since many of them have pledged allegiance to Commandante Zero, what else might they come together to do? Push even harder for gun bans?
Looks like it might have been an attempted carjacking of a celebrity fresh from the gun-free red carpet security zone.

Charles the First and Parliament had a similar conflict ~1640. The outcome was, ahem...fatal to Chuck's political ambitions.

BHO and King Charles share numerous character traits, as do Roundheads and the militia.

Will this be round #2: Roundheads v No-heads?

May God bless the Republic and those who seek her welfare.

I am the very model of a modern free militiaman.
You'll find ten million like me from Key West on up to Ketchikan.
We used to work in comfy jobs in offices and factories,
but now we have all day to calculate bullet tra-jec-tor-ees...
And strategize our tactics for the day the sh-- will hit the fan.
We are the very model of the modern free militiaman.

Gridlock is the best thing that can happen to this country. A congress in gridlock cannot pass a bunch of cockamamie damn fool laws that are good only for interfering with its citizens' lives.

Obama and Soros can take their executive orders and make a flying frick at a rolling doughnut and be damned.

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
