Horrifically, what I wrote and warned about in 2008 (and since then in multiple columns) would happen if Obama was elected has now occurred.
On 7 March 2012, backed up by Obama sycophant Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, the Obama Dictatorship’s Defense Secretary Leon Panetta (defense of and for Obama–only) advised the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Obama Administration had no responsibility to even consult Congress in matters of waging war. Panetta said, however, as a courtesy they would be informed. He further stated that the Obama administration would now seek “international permission” (which he said included NATO and the United Nations) for any of Obama’s war adventures overseas. General Dempsey (apparently looking for a UN job) said that his “authority” for making this determination was to look toward “an international legal basis.”
As Senator Sessions asked both men questions, never once did either Panetta or Dempsey even mention-in-passing the US Constitution as having any bearing–let alone legal basis–in their decisions at all. For those leftist doubters, watch the video cited below in its entirety. As Sen. Sessions said, their comments are truly “breathtaking.”

gets its authority from UN or NATO“
Since Obama’s inauguration (aka “coronation”), he has been quickly forcing the USA into joblessness, lack, poverty, bondage and submission. He has already nullified much of our Bill of Rights and US Law in favor of “ObamaLaw.” Now, the dictator has advised Congress that the 3 co-equal branches of government no longer exist. In fact, with a stroke of his pen or a commandments issuing forth from his forked-tongue mouth, he is essentially saying: ‘You–as do the American people–exist only if I say you do‘! Obama is now saying that Congress is irrelevant. And if its members don’t like it, he will speak them into non-existence.
For years now, under this tyrant, Congress has been warned over and over again to stop him. They have remained silent. We have told them this would happen. Still, they said and did nothing. Despite Speaker of the House John Boehner’s feeble pretense of being strong, he has consistently voted with the dictator. He hoped to keep his job as Speaker–a job he said he has wanted his entire life! Some members of Congress have now decided that it’s time to create and pass a resolution to make bypassing Congress an impeachable offense. However, now the coup has occurred and it includes the Obama syndicate and the leaders of the US Military–headed up by ‘We’re all international Marxists and UN supplicants now’ “General” Martin Dempsey. Too little–too late from an entirely submissive-to-Obama Congress.
The USA is now being run by a completely criminal and illegal government. The Republic HAS been officially overthrown. It’s only a matter of time before it starts actively and forcefully going against the American people. I predict that it will not be long before the real reason for the FEMA camps’ refurbishing and recent activations will be evident. Talk of Hitlerian tactics are now in the wind. This appears to be a 1930’s redux.
Despite Rush Limbaugh’s statement, this is the time for panic. For too long our “leaders” have chosen lies over the truth and too many in our population have gone along with them. We-the-people are now only beginning to reap the whirlwind.
He (the King of the North) shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
