The Founding Fathers of the United States knew, and assumed it was a given, that the balanced recipe for freedom they had encoded in the Constitution they crafted would work – provided, of course, that its constraints on power were actually followed.
That requirement for restraint of course, includes the office of President of the United States. Our executive branch of government is not referred to in the Constitution as King His or Her Majesty, Monarch, or Dictator.That very ethic is precisely what Ben Franklin meant when someone asked him what kind of document he and the other founders had produced at the Constitutional Convention. Franklin’s reply: “A republic, if you can keep it.
“What kind of leader?Some students of constitutional law claim that only one of our 44 presidents faithfully followed the Constitution to the letter 100 percent of the time: Grover Cleveland, who let it be noted was a Democrat. A few others were on thin ice Woodrow Wilson, who was disabled the end of his tenure, and Franklin D. Roosevelt who died in office – both thus avoided accountability.

……Due to Donovan’s recommendation that the United States establish a “commando military element,” independent of the Army and Navy, he submitted a Memorandum to the President Roosevelt stating its overall purpose and function.The following day, President Roosevelt, in non-committal language, indicated that Donovan’s proposal for development and deployment of a “commando military element” had merit and would see to it that the idea would be considered.
President Roosevelt initiated a letter to the Commandant of the Marine Corps Major General Holcomb for consideration of Donovan’s idea. President Roosevelt, how was constantly in communication with Prime Minister Winston Minister Churchill, had talked over the “commando concept,” which Churchill favored the idea.
One of the biggest questions that arose concerning this issue, was where would this notional organization be placed. In Donovan’s Memorandum to the President, he only noted the purpose of the “commando military element” and did not address where it would be placed or its organizational structure. However, a number of circumstances pointed directly towards the Marine Corps.

The End of the World Powers
Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog
60 years ago an uprising in the Ukraine would have been met with machine guns fired from behind the armor of Communist ideology. With the fall of the USSR, Russia didn’t have much of an ideology to deploy against Ukrainian nationalism. It accused the protesters of being fascists, an accusation with some truth to it, but not one that anyone will take seriously coming from another fascist regime.
“Why an Imperial Presidency?….The person who actually drew up the legal documents implementing the CFR conspirators’ plan to create the COI was Benjamin Cohen, a trusted CFR agent. In violation of the U.S. Constitution, CFR agent Franklin D. Roosevelt signed…” …Servando Gonzalez – historian, semiotician, writer, political satirist, intelligence analyst
Why an Imperial Presidency?
A long time ago, the CFR conspirators realized that it would be much easier to buy or coerce a single corrupt politician, the President, than a whole bunch of them. Faithful to their infiltration techniques copied from the British Fabians, they rather prefer to hide in the shadows as the power behind the throne than to be in the limelight.
But there was no throne in the U.S. Actually, it was closer to a set of musical chairs. By creating the concept of the division of powers, the Founding Fathers had erected an inviolable barrier to the conspirators’ dreams.

With Common Core spoon-feeding school children a steady school-day diet of anti-American propaganda, it’s prime time for parents to school their own
children in the true chronicled History of the one nation the rest of the world still cherishes as the escape hatch to freedom and liberty.
Only yesterday, it was revealed that the Obama administration is planning on gutting the U.S. military to pre-World War II levels.

The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing.
A glaring example of the impending triumph of a constitutional evil that could be stopped by folks who have been largely silent is the tyranny coming from the White House.
The folks who can stop this and are doing nothing about it are our elected representatives in Congress.
I Am Afraid of My Government
By Alan Caruba
I came into this world when Franklin D. Roosevelt was President and I have never been afraid of my government until now.
I am not alone. A consistent and growing theme of commentaries on the conservative news sites and blogs that I read every day is the fear of the Obama administration that has been cracking down on those who criticize it. They get audited by the IRS.
They are refused the same status as non-profit entitles engaging in public education as Left-leaning organizations. They are accused of being racists, homophobes, anti-immigration, and anti-women.
