    Interesting that the Orlando Sentinel reports on this tonight:

    Orlando's Rep. Adams fears Obama power grab

    WASHINGTON — A White House order updating federal emergency powers has raised alarm among some conservative commentators, and U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams, that President Barack Obama is attempting to grab unconstitutional powers.

    A columnist with The Washington Times declared the mid-March order — an update of a 60-year-old document outlining the president's authority in a national emergency — "stunning in its audacity and a flagrant violation of the Constitution."

    ...And Adams, R-Orlando, said it "leaves the door open for the president to give himself control over American resources during both times of peace, and national crisis."

    So Adams filed a nonbinding resolution specifying what Obama cannot do with the order — including institute a draft, confiscate personal property and "force civilians to engage in labor against their will or without compensation."...

    It almost makes you wonder. Is this how the establishment in that day circled the wagons around Hitler too ... in the beginning? Just one "power grab" is nothing. But taking a broader view of all the orders and mandates, the set asides, ignoring and/or contempt for the courts, turning the Justice dept into ... what? An arms distribution center, possibly money laundering for gangs? Plus turning racism upside down on its head. The property or business confiscation (a little fascism?), wealth redistribution and crony capitalism. All the flaming communists and marxists appointments and czars... it just goes on and on and...

    Plus the college records, the health records, the travel records ... and whatever else is locked away so nobody has a clue about the chief marxist clown.

    Meanwhile, what is our govt turning into? A Thuggish Statist Utopia? Govt is supposed to fear the citizens... not the other way around. Unless of course we are no longer citizens.. but subjects.

    And where in H E double L is the republican leadership all this time? Are they a little envious of these power grabs? Perhaps ordering xtra knee pads besides the ones they've worn so well already, as they secretly hope to get a little piece of the pie? Is this why they with the dems and the media attacked all the conservative candidates to get them thrown out of the Presidential race early? So the only thing left standing is the girly man (with nice hair) vs the ("clean and articulate") man child megalomaniac narcissist? Really, it almost makes you wonder.

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
