Expert to Congress: Obama’s Illegal Behavior Could Spark Armed Revolt

(Joe Newby) While testifying before a House panel Tuesday, Michael Cannon, director of the Cato Institute’s Health Policy Studies, said Barack Obama‘s behavior — specifically, his failure to adhere to the law — could spark an armed revolt against the government,Mediaite reported. “There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restraints that the constitution places on the government,” he said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he added. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.” “That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon said, “to try to impose obligations upon people that the legislature did not approve.” After the 2010 midterm elections, the liberal Center for American Progress advised Obama to use all of his executive power — including his authority as commander-in-chief of the military — to unilaterally push his agenda while bypassing Congress. The result has been an unchecked executive branch issuing mandates through regulations and executive orders, sometimes ignoring established law.

    LOL I’m sure that’s why he’s hiding out in Hawaii. When God decides to judge him, even armored underwear won’t save him. May He not tarry.

      Shut up idiot.

      • Diana

        Not even an American name. Figures.

        • Soren Mitchell

          what’s an american name? his reply ain’t the sharpest, but neither is yours… and which god will judge him? the american one?

          • Diana

            LOL The one you’ll meet before long; the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. As I recall, Abraham had TWO sons.

        Jev, I think that we know who the idiot here is and just in case you don’t it isn’t Diana

    What is worse is they are simultaneously fomenting racial unrest with their abject racial hypocrisy. Punishing Caucasians for racist acts as they ignore Blacks committing the same or worse racist crimes.

    • Atomicflunk

      But when you say “they”, who do you mean? If you do not call them by name, it will change nothing. Who owns the medias? Who owns the banks? Who files all the complaints of Christmas, and equal rights for homosexuals???? I’ll give you a hint: They’re all Khazars. Until evil is dragged into the light it will thrive. Call “them” by name. And I really hope you are smarter than to blame the “evil muslims”. Please tell me you’re smarter than that. The muslims don’t own all news medias, etc.. The muslims aren’t the ones filing complaints against nativity scenes. The muslims aren’t sending billions in welfare to Israel while America is broke and crumbles.

      • Gus Mueller

        In this case, dummy, the “they” is well-known Khazar Eric Holder.

      • Elmo Fudginputz

        Right on the money, Khazars, a/k/a Jews-In-Name only, JINOs. They aren’t even Jews, as extensive DNA research has proven in the last 20 years.

        • IamJustanAmerican

          Of course the Israelites were not originally from Palestine. They all came from Eygpt. People tend to forget that bit of history. I don’t think that Palenstine was the chosen land.I just think they got tired of walking!

      • Diana

        No, the Muslims are too busy slaughtering Christians all over the Middle East. Here’s an article from just a few days ago:
        Slaughter of Christian Women and Children in Muslim Lands 12/19/13
        Next try accessing youtube and type in ‘Christian blood being sold to Saudi’s for Allyh’ The Muslims think if they wash their hands in Christian blood, it wipes all them clean of all the atrosities they’ve performed on Christians and non-Muslims alike.

  • Billy Bob

    thats the problem with you ignorant americans you have been leaving up to some imagined god that doesnt exist to solve the very problems that you voted for, now shut up and enjoy the slavery you created for yourself, you have been voting for over a 100 years and the country is all to hell, and you havent figured out yet that rich powerful people aint gong to let you poor azzs run things. Karma is a bitch aint it?

    • Uncle_Meat

      Yeah, and you voted for Obama? What country do you live in fool?

      • Billy Bob

        you are a total idiot

    • John Henry Eden

      Let’s get this right. Billy Bob says God doesn’t exist but appeals to Karma.. Also Billy Bob is too big of a pussy to write “ass”.

      • Billy Bob

        john i have already had to call one guy an idiot i was hoping i wouldnt have to do it again but i see it is needed, you are it.

        • John Henry Eden

          Takes one to know one.

  • Uncle_Meat

    They will pit the police and the military against the people in a coming civil war. There are very few patriotic Americans left in those ranks because only the scum of the earth willing to do whatever they are told have been selected. They are in for a surprise. They are outnumbered by all the armed law abiding citizens. They turn their guns on us we will do the same to them. Here is where the people win. It’s only a job to these dirtbag goons. We will know where they live too. The people will be fighting for their lives. These punks will be pulled from their homes by stealth and their entire families wiped out. There will be mass desertions and brutal death to any that remain. The people will no longer care what happens to them when they see the hammer coming down. There will be no pity for your sorry asses.

    • The AntiMan

      True but there are far more patriot oath-keepers in the military still. The LEO’s in America are traitors to us and criminals against the Constitution/Bill of Rights. 98% of them are.

  • T.j. Thomas

    “The result has been an unchecked executive branch issuing mandates through regulations and executive orders, sometimes ignoring established law. ” Except when G.W. Bush did this, including through signing statements, he was praised for being a “unitary executive”. This is why I tell people that I’ve supported the Tea Party since Bush was president.

  • Jimmy Yost

    Spark an armed revolt? You’ve GOT to be kidding. Most Americans don’t have time for any such thing because it would cut into their TV and movie watching.

    • Nikki Santoro

      And even if they were to give up their beloved Duck Dynasty, they are so out of shape that they’d probably pass out trying to get started.

    • Atomicflunk

      Keep in mind that Americans have risen many times before, so, to count them out is a little naïve. I’ll make a prediction: I bet that people start issuing arrest warrants for those in congress, Wall Street, banks, other money lenders, news medias etc.. You will see patriot bounty hunters enforcing these warrants. Groups will be formed to account all money that the gov rakes in. It will be monitored as to where all that money is going/has gone. There will be arrest warrants issued for other governments/countries for crimes against The United States. The traitors are about to be rounded up.

    • The AntiMan

      Ahhh, shut up.

  • Billy Bob

    your entire govt knew your president was illegal, the defense dept knew it, a big part of americans knew it, but he is your president, did ya learn anything yet, And if you are counting on god to do what you didnt have the guts or the will to do, keep hiding behind that religious horsesh*t lets see where it takes ya

  • Jimmy Yost

    Not that it matters who voted for who, as Stalin said: “It’s not who votes that counts, it’s who counts the votes that counts.” I think the elite installed Obama to send a signal to our citizenry that our national sovereignty has been totally infiltrated, overthrown, and finished off. It’s like the ultimate slap in the face, and most Americans are too brainwashed (and brain-dead) to realize it. If they were awake they’d understand all this and would quit wasting their time and energy with the stupid ‘us vs them’ (right vs left) bullshit.

  • Bill in Tennessee

    Is he kidding about “no one wanting to contemplate an armed rebellion”? I contemplate it ALL THE TIME! I’m hoping the military will start it off by suddenly waking up and recalling that they took an oath to defend the Constitution… you know, that piece of paper that enshrined our liberties? Yeah,THAT one. Wake up, military, your country is being sold down the river by arrogant Liberal politicians.

    • The AntiMan

      Me too. I’ve watched my nation burn far too long now and I’m in my 30’s. On one hand I don’t want it but on the other hand, I know that revolting is our only option left, a real option with various avenues to take to execute said revolt. It doesn’t have to be all physical but being tactically physical is going to be a big part of this war.

  • WhiteBoy65

    Fuk the Federal Government and the U.S. Military. They dishonor those before them who took their oath of ‘enemies foreign and domestic’ seriously. We are on our own…

    “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
    Huh? Isn’t this what the South did? And what did old Abe say about “rights” then?

    • oatwillie

      The South was the North’s cash cow. The War was never about slavery, it was about money-
      and the South was right to secede. Unfortunately, God is on the side of the big battalions.

    • John Henry Eden

      Lincoln was nothing more than a livestock rustler.

  • Grim Fandango

    Thomas Jefferson wrote:

    “Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusets? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? God forbid we should ever be
    20 years without such a rebellion.”

    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

    He wrote this in 1787, and so we are 206 years overdue for his requested rebellion, and I fear, deeply in need of it.

  • Defiant

    We don’t need the Cato Institute’s Health Policy Studies to tell us Obama is going to cause a revolt. He’s a DICTATOR! We take a LOT initially…but we won’t stand for it much longer. At all.
