Obama blames Founding Fathers’ ‘structural’ design of Congress for gridlock

President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate.
Articles: House Resolution of No Confidence: Obama’s Conviction without Eviction….. “At least one prominent, outspoken, and \”thinking\” critic of the president — General Paul Vallely of the Stand Up America (SUA) coalition of national security and foreign affairs experts — believes that there is a viable alternative to the \”nuclear option\” of conviction and eviction. According to the outspoken general in his….”

During the last two years, there has been a marked increase in calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. But there is no commensurate increase in the likelihood that either a formal indictment by the House or formal conviction by the Senate can actually be achieved.
Indeed, although certain \”Articles of Impeachment\” have been filed in the House, there is no likelihood that either Judiciary Committee consideration or full House action is likely to occur unless and until the Republicans retain control of the House and take narrow control of the Senate a year from now.

The House Republican leadership with its Dec. 3 vote to extend the ban on “undetectable” guns proved again it excels at political cowardice and betrayal of conservatives.
Do not bother looking for the roll call of the yeas and nays on the vote, the GOP leaders, working with Democrats, suspended the rules and passed the measure with a voice vote—with maybe 15 actual congressmen on the House floor.
The message was delivered, but was it received?… “C-Span footage shows her calmly walking to the dais where she began making statements about God, the founding of the United States, our Constitution, and the influence that Freemasonry played in the founding of our country. She warned House members that they could not serve two masters and that God will not be mocked. Unsurprisingly, Mrs. Reidy was whisked from the dais and ultimately taken to George Washington University Hospital for “mental evaluation.” She was released after about two hours of evaluation.”

Following the vote to suspend the debt ceiling last Wednesday night, 48 year-old Dianne Reidy, a floor stenographer for the U.S. House of Representatives for the last 8 years, surprised everyone when she briefly but unexpectedly took over the microphone on the House floor at about 10:00 pm.

resident Obama’s top adviser Valerie Jarrett was behind a plan to force a showdown with Republicans over ObamaCare as part of a strategy to regain Democratic control of the House next year, claims author Ed Klein.
Klein — who wrote a provocative biography about Obama last year entitled “The Amateur” — said White House insiders refer to Jarrett as “The Night Stalker” because she is the only presidential aide who frequently spends time in the family quarters and dines with the Obamas.
Klein, who is conducting a research for a new Obama tome scheduled for next spring, called Jarrett the “architect” of Obama’s take-no- prisoners approach when it comes to his signature domestic policy initiative.
It was Jarrett who advised Obama that voters would mostly blame Republicans if the federal government ground to a halt, providing a golden opportunity to swing back control of the House to Democrats in the 2014 mid-term elections, according to Klein.
A Democratic House would give Obama an opportunity to pass immigration and other legislation blocked by the current Republican majority.
“It was during one of those nightly sessions that Jarrett devised the no-negotiating strategy that Obama has employed in his fight with the GOP over the government shutdown,” Klein said, citing sources within the administration.
“Valerie came up with the concept late at night, after the kids and grandma and were gone.”
Can there be a more fruitful source of dispute, or a kind of dispute more difficult to be settled?— James Madison speaking at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 on the spending bill battles between the House and Senate that would occur.
As the “Government Shutdown” puppet show continues its run in Washington, D.C., there is power in the Constitution to close down the entire production.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., September 25, 2013 — While Republicans and Democrats alike excoriate Texas Senator Ted Cruz for his filibuster, everyone, including establishment media, miss the truth. It is neither Cruz nor House Republicans who are threatening to shut down the government over funding for Obamacare.
