Adamo: Obama’s Quest To Consolidate Federal Power

By Christopher G. Adamo

Theories abound as to the motives and significance of Barack Obama’s April 2, 2012 tirade against the United States Supreme Court. Perhaps the most plausible, given the timing of the events, is that one of the “justices” sympathetic to the Obama regime leaked word that the Court had struck down Obamacare in large part, or in full. In response, Obama could be attempting to publicly stay ahead of the court, since its decision will not be officially announced until June.

Of course, the primary suspect in this scenario is Elena Kagan, the newest member of the court. It may seem pejorative to suggest that she could so flagrantly compromise the integrity of her office, except that by remaining involved with the Obamacare court case, she has already done just that. Having stumped for Obama’s massive governmental power grab as his Solicitor General, she can by no means be objective in her current position. Yet she flatly declined to recuse herself from the case. So regardless of whether or not she actually divulged last week’s decision on Obamacare, the Court as it currently exists is in a wholly compromised condition.

Nor was the outrageous commentary on Monday the first effort by Obama to wage war on the Supreme Court and all of those irritating constitutional limitations to his power that it currently represents. In the wake of his latest rant, many are recalling how he used the 2010 “State of the Union” message to disparage the Supreme Court for ruling against Campaign Finance “Reform.” Yet his latest outburst reveals something much broader in scope and far more sinister than an episode of mere jockeying for power between two branches of the United States Government.

Long before his inauguration, Barack Obama made clear his intentions to expand the reach and power of government beyond any former boundaries. In truth, this was the real essence of the “hope and change” rhetoric of his campaign. He and his kind are convinced they can usher in utopia, but only if they are first able to amass the power to forcibly make it happen. To their dismay, the framers of the Constitution did not imbue their kind with that degree of unfettered authority.

So, in response to these circumstances, a sinister strategy was implemented to garner just such a capability. In rapid succession, every governmental office under Obama’s dominion began to exceed its boundaries and ignore any limits to its authority. Suddenly, the Environmental Protection Agency was redefining its mission by implementing changes to environmental law through regulation, with no legislative authorization or oversight. Meanwhile, the “Justice” Department essentially legalized voter intimidation, as long as such acts were perpetrated by minorities against white America.

Although in the past these excesses would clearly have been construed as illegal abuses of power, it soon became painfully obvious that the “mainstream” media had no intentions of holding the liberal perpetrators accountable. Instead, they consistently ignored such contemptible actions while focusing like a laser on any critics of the administration, with a goal of wholly discrediting them.

However, to the general dismay of leftists, the public has responded by becoming informed and involved. Mainstream America is now alert to such mainstays of the liberal agenda as “judicial activism,” and the dangers to liberty and constitutional law it represents. Consequently, the ability of unelected judges to make or abolish law, merely by subjugating it to their personal opinions, while remaining unnoticed and avoiding criticism is a thing of the past.

In particular, the confirmation hearings of Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito re-emphasized, and to a major degree reaffirmed the fundamental role of a Supreme Court Justice in upholding the principles of constitutional law, and not exploiting the office as a means of dictating personal policy to the masses. Assuming office within a few months of each other during President George W. Bush’s last term as president, Roberts and Alito were able to brave the onslaught of liberal attacks and smear campaigns intended to thwart their confirmation by continually refocusing divergent questions from Senate liberals on their constitutional merits, or lack thereof.

In contrast, the confirmation strategies of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, Obama’s two leftist appointees to the Court, were predictably centered on gender and ethnicity, with little consideration given to their total lack of objectivity in past adjudicating. While the intent of conservatives is to ensure that the courts preserve the integrity of the Constitution as it is reflected in the nation’s laws and judgments, the goal of liberals is to advance liberalism, through whatever means they can.

Against this backdrop, it is imperative that Barack Obama and his political cohorts dissipate any spotlighting of the Constitution as the definitive standard by which the merits or pitfalls of a law is determined. In its stead, the unquestioned worthiness of liberalism must be substituted. Hence, Obama has on numerous occasions sought to essentially redefine “judicial activism” in the minds of his minions as any opposition to his agenda.

Monday’s comments, whether based on leaked information or merely the general paranoia that characterizes all aspiring authoritarians, represented a brazen effort to diminish and discredit the court on the basis that its only legitimate option is to rubber stamp Obamacare. In essence, he attempted to marginalize the Court in the eyes of the American people by dismissing any opinions it delivers which do not coincide with his own.

We have seen this Alinskyite pattern in the past. When unable to endlessly engage in wanton spending sprees under the auspices of government funded “stimulus” for the economy, Obama misrepresented the proper congressional oversight of federal spending as evidence of a “dysfunctional” Congress. In response, he promised to remedy the situation by sidestepping the Congress.

With each passing day, Americans are given further examples of their options for the nation’s future, which will be determined by who they decide to install in the Oval Office next January. Despite Attorney General Eric Holder’s subsequent attempts at “damage control,” Barack Obama’s statements stand, and their ramifications are inescapable.

Threats against the Supreme Court from an arrogant and narcissistic radical, based on that court’s potential decision to preserve and defend the Constitution, foreshadow similar threats against every citizen who, whether at the ballot box or by the exercise of free speech, dares to do likewise.

    “Communism is the goal of socialism”. Karl Marx

    I’m always relieved to read about someone writing about Saul Alinsky, as there just isn’t enough attention given to these tactics by the Republicans or the conservatives. The Clintons were both students of Alinsky and Saul was so fond of Hillary he wanted her to work for him but she had other fish to fry.

    Obama has become a passionate pupil of Alinsky and is following his teachings to the letter. Consolidating government into a monolithic power is part of the strategy. Alinsky advised his pupils to get power anyway they can whether it be by lying, stealing, cheating, etc. The end always justified the means.

    Obama uses Alinsky’s methods every time he OPENS his mouth as Alinsky taught that people are motivated by their own “self interest,” hence, the “I care” rhetoric with women and minorities, and the continuous focus on class warfare. Insofar as opponents are concerned, constant ridicule was Alinsky’s weapon as he claimed it was almost impossible to counterattack and infuriates the opponent who then acts to your advantage.

    The recent outburst of Obama in regards to the Supreme Court is a gift for Romney to use during his debates with Obama. The Republicans who have been asleep at the wheel for a long time, should make sure that Mitt knows everything there is to know about Alinsky methods because our enemies are too well versed and too thoroughly imbued with evil tactics and crafty political maneuvers. It’s do or die!

    “Hell would be heaven for me.” Saul Alinsky

      Thinking women are beginning to understand that the “I Care” rhetoric is just the socialist version of betrayal of Judas in the garden. First they offer kiss, then they betray and lead to destruction. Then they get hung by their own rope, by their own hand when the knowledge of their own mortality rushes upon them, when the sanity returns and they realize what they have done to the innocent, and they realize there is a God and it is not them.

      Hell would indeed be heaven for Alinsky and his followers who always prefer to rule in their socialist hell of diminishing wealth with THEM in control, versus a Capitalist heaven where they take a back seat, but ALL boats rise in prosperity.

      I kind of doubt that there will be. Remember that Obama has given himself the authority to declare martial law during peace time. He’ll look at the polls and decide whether or not to implement martial law based on how he’s doing in those polls.

Or the bill that was intrduced when he got elected to eliminate the two term limination on presidents. If you think what he has done so far is bad, if he get reelected, you aint seen nothing yet. In December & January you will see a shower if Executive Orders the like of which have never been done before.

      Looney28: I don’t think polls alone would trigger his decision to declare martial law. But a combination of nationwide ‘Occupy’ protests, union thuggery and intimidation, internet chicanery, environmental terrorists, and the inability by law enforcement to contain all this at once, might give Obummer the opening he’s looking for. But I would bet the ranch that he’ll use a conservative counter-rally as his pretext to call out his dogs.

    Soros/Alinsky/Obama have started this deceptively quiet revolution against our nation and its constitution.
    Newsjunky is so right about this, and so is Mr Adamo.
    And it is so easy to get outraged when you get ridiculed by the followers of these radicals over and over, and it is so true that that plays right into their cards.
    Gov. Romney, yes, please learn all about Alinsky and how they cheat, lie, manipulate and ridicule us! Let’s all learn about this, and learn how to defend our nation and constitution!
    We have now for quite a while been involved in a war against the America as we knew it, so quietly that most of us didn’t even realize it! Time to wake up, and fight this evil attempts to destroy our America!

    It looks like our first priority when we finally take over the Senate is to impeach Kagan and send her back to whatever foreign balkanized Ghetto that spawned her American disloyalty. In the coming election, whenever Obama opens his trap how he is a racial and political people Uniter, everyone in the crowd needs to lift middle finger in one united gesture. He has done nothing but disparage and confound Congress and the Judicial branches of government who he has repeatedly challenged to war upon each other. He has divided the people and caused them to make war upon each other politically and economically, so just what makes him think his paradigm of divisive government will now fly again in November with a war weary withered populace craving for peace within and without? His Jeremiah Wright chickens which he hatched upon the people have now come home to roost, and the people are finally taking aim at the fox who presented himself as a crowing rooster in the henhouse of government. It is time the American people make war upon HIM who has proven to be the real enemy of the people and their prosperity. ( 4 million homes lost to foreclosure since 2007)

    There is no question that Elana Kagan should have recused herself from participating in the healthcare constitutionality case since she was the Inspector General under Obama that put together the case that was eventually taken to the Supreme Court. What other reason is there that could be more blatantly obvious? Obama talks about judicial activism but doesn’t mention Kagan’s situation…what a hypocrit.

    President Obama cannot be trusted to be our President and should never have been elected into that position, but he, nevertheless, is there. The only good thing coming out of this is the exposure of the involvement of George Soros and Saul Alinsky in the works of the Obama administration. Glenn Beck was trying to expose the radical nature and the linkages of Soros, Alinsky, Van Jones, Andy Stern, Bill Ayers, and a number of communist and socialist radical activist groups into this administration, but was eventually forced to give it up in prime time and to go to his internet based GBTV programming which is coupled with his radio pogram. Glenn has it right but has been continually demeaned and projected as a radical by the liberal press and media in this country.

    When you think about it, how much more evidence does an American citizen need to finally understand the danger to our country of Obama and his CZARs?

    The behavior of our President is so arrogant and anti-American and has created the most polarized environment in our country since the civil war. There is nothing good that can come from this man continuing as our President. Even those patriotic Americans in the Democratic party should see the damage he is doing and should do their patriotic duty and vote him out in November.

      Funny you bring up Glenn Beck! He sure was the first one to show us about the radicals/socialists and how they were working on eroding our Constitution and take it away from us.

      I find it sad that his GBTV initiative is now a ‘for profit’ enterprise! I wish he was still on regular TV and he would continue to share his views with us for free!

      Didn’t agree with him all the time, but certainly appreciated learning from his contributions.

      Yes JDZ, it is good that Soros, Alinsky, & the rest have been exposed! But the bottom line is that this so called president has done nothing but trample on the Constitution. Just ONCE I want to hear the writer of these articles place the blame squarely where it DOES actually fall…namely on the shoulders of CONGRESS. Congress has allowed him to do all that he has! CONGRESS confirmed Kagan & Sotomayer, & didn’t demand Kagan’s recusal. CONGRESS has allowed themselves to be circumvented at every turn! CONGRESS allowed the appointment of all of his czars! CONGRESS could have called for impeachment long ago! If CONGRESS were doing what they should, they would have called upon the military to march his arse out of there!
      The conspiracy to bring the nation to its knees may have begun with Alinsky & Soros. But the corruption goes much deeper! All of these “freshmen” voted in in 2010, all these new Tea Party “saviors”…where have they gone? It is my belief that either they left their cajones at the door before entering the great “halls”, or the corruption runs so very deep, that I fear it is way too late to bring this nation back! I pray, almost daily otherwise, but I see little hope as long as CONGRESS continues to allow this marxist free reign!

      Glenn Beck did a great job of identifying and linking many of these radical groups [a real spider's web] until they turned their cannons on him to remove him from FOX. If anyone is interested to pursue this line of investigation, you can go to David Horowitz’ [a former 60's radical himself] website Discoverthenetworks.org to see a more extensive organizational chart, their primary missions, and who is funding them [it's not just George Soros].

      The problem is so many GOOD citizens came to maturity during the Great Depression and came to honestly believe the Democratic party and FDR saved America.They were taught by their parents – as was I – that it didn’t matter who you voted for as long as you vote for THE DEMOCRAT.

      JFK stated opening my eyes. then LBJ revealed what a monstrosity the libs are. then the GA boy so disgusted me that I could no longer hold my head up and register as Democrat.

However, today, we must realize that the dem party almost no longer exists…it is has evolved into the socialist party! There are no longer that many dems that have not accepted that ideology.

    Kagan should have recused herself, but she is determined to stay on the case to appease Obama. The only incidents of judicial activism have been made by liberal judges notably in the areas of religious liberty and gay marriage. Obama is a hypocrite when he said that the SC would be displaying an act of judicial activism should they vote against Omamacare.

      Obama doesn’t mmind being called a hypocrite as long as he gets his way. That is the Chicago-style thug with all the marxist training being evident in his bullying of the Supreme Court.

      I read recently that the Supreme Court would meet and vote on the law, their decision would not be public until June, and that there have been occasions where the justices after reading some of their colleagues’ opinions would change their vote. So I am persuaded that the vote was against the law, Kagan leaked the ruling to Obama, and he has gone into his attack mode to intimidate one or two of the justices to change their vote before it is announced.

      I agree bna42!

      Obama is blatantly trying to pre-empt the expected outcome of the SC decision, by trying to create so much controversy over the SC, that it will overshadow the expected ruling.
      He has walked back (forced) his initial outrageous claims, but the cat is out of the bag!
      I am sure he has done exactly what he wanted to do, and achieved precisely what he intended!
      Hopefully the opposition to his regime will keep pushing back long and hard and be able to demonstrate to the sheeple the dangers of what this President is trying to accomplish!
      Long term, Obama is trying to reduce the power of the SC, by creating controversy around its role and existence! He is just setting himself up for a situation where he can make it increasingly irrelevant, with complete disregard for its role as defined in our Constitution.

    For those not yet familiar with Saul Alinsky and his infamous book “Rules for Radicals” here is a good summary!

    Outlining his strategy in organizing, Alinsky writes:

    There’s another reason for working inside the system. Dostoyevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don’t encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let’s not let it happen by default.[3]

    For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting whatever he believed to be wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it. The two are linked. If people feel they don’t have the power to change a situation, they stop thinking about it.

    According to Alinsky, the organizer — especially a paid organizer from outside — must first overcome suspicion and establish credibility. Next the organizer must begin the task of agitating: rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy. This is necessary to get people to participate. An organizer has to attack apathy and disturb the prevailing patterns of complacent community life where people have simply come to accept a situation. Alinsky would say, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.”

    Through a process combining hope and resentment, the organizer tries to create a “mass army” that brings in as many recruits as possible from local organizations, churches, services groups, labor unions, corner gangs, and individuals.

    According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”[3]

    In a separate chapter he suggests that the perennial question, “Does the end justify the means?” is meaningless as it stands: the real and only question regarding the ethics of means and ends is, and always has been, “Does this particular end justify this particular means?”

    These rules of the ethics of means and ends are only one chapter of his book, totally distinct from his “clear set of rules for community organizing.”

      This seems strangely like the same plan the mob uses in a protection racket? The question so who came up with it first?

      All of these radical secular progressive moves are tactical, their strategic objective is ONE-WORLD- ORDER domination.

      Obama, the Community Organizer president,has followed Alinsky to a tea with his class warfare tactics and with the Dems and unions support of the Occupier Groups. He has effectively alienated the poor against the rich in his attempts to share the wealth and with his strong partisan politics. During his campaign bs he said that he was a ‘uniter’ but turns out the opposite. His actions have been pro-Muslim and anti-Christian and his philosophy has been Marxist oriented.

    Read this and see how Bob Barber (knowingly or not) follows one of the rules of Saul Alinsky:

    According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”[3]

    Read “Red Army, the Radical Network That Must Be Defeated to Save America” by AAron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott. It exposes Obama and the network of radicals, socialists and communists both in and out of Congress that are working behind the scenes. You will learn their methods and motivations. They believe in a one=world government where America will just be one among equals. They will destroy our economy so people will beg the federal government to come to rescue the, They are indoctrinating our children in school, “entertainment” and by denying our First Amendment rights by judicial decree.

    In answer to Comment by OldCurmudgeon, I heard Norman Thomas the six time presidential candidate of the American Socialist Party and the successor to Eugene Debbs founder of the American Communist Party say in a speech in 1948: “Both the Republicans and the Democrats have become more socialistic than is safe for our Constitutional democracy.” Now every one can understand why he said it.
