Obama's New Power Grab

Obama proves again that our Constitutional Democracy is dead. In yet another executive order, he bypassed our elected Congress and decided unilaterally to create new legislation. To paraphrase our glorious Vice President: we’ll bypass Congress to ensure the success of our new climate program. (Wait, that’s unconstitutional and in fact both he and Obama should be thrown out of office for such an action!)

Under the title Preparing the United States for the Impact of Climate Change, Obama's executive order seeks to pour more federal funds into controlling the weather. Now, he wants to put the federal government in charge of actions that could affect the weather. As Fox reported, "President Obama on Friday used his executive powers to elevate and take control of climate change policies in an attempt to streamline sustainability initiatives - and potentially skirt legislative oversight and push a federal agenda on states."

-- Hold back money to communities unless they meet new standards on various items and agendas set by the federal government. For example, using new policies that will encourage communities to rebuild to pre-disaster standards instead of stronger ones.

-- A possible mandate to bring sweeping new changes to land use and resource policies.

-- More control and refocus of climate change data and use of it to push a new agenda into every priority of the federal government.

-- Create the need for a new internal organization for coordination efforts during a government sequestration and possible future shutdowns.

-- Create laws whereby the government can seize a private citizen’s properly, levy exorbitant fines to homeowners who do not comply to the new mandates and dictate every aspect of a person’s home life.

Welcome to the New America. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
