Beck Drops Bombshell On Obama: 'Earmarks Of Marxist Dictator' (Videos)

By Susan Duclos

Two videos for the price of one, the first is the headlined video where Beck challenges the MSM to dare ask Obama some tough questions directly so they can watch him turn into the real Barack, pointing out that Obama has all the earmarks of a marxist dictator.

The second video is just for laughs as Glenn Beck lists all the most unpopular blasts from the past that are more popular than Obamacare.

Egypt's Morsi Grants Himself Powers Of A Dictator- Videos And Text Of Morsi Decree

By Susan Duclos

[Updates below original post and videos]

Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi granted himself powers with a decree, via a constitutional declaration, that puts him above any court, then used his new power to order the retrial of Hosni Mubarak.

So much for Democracy and the Arab Spring eh?

Ahram Online provides a translated version of Thursday's Constitutional Declaration.
We have decided the following:

Article I
Reopen the investigations and prosecutions in the cases of the murder, the attempted murder and the wounding of protesters as well as the crimes of terror committed against the revolutionaries by anyone who held a political or executive position under the former regime, according to the Law of the Protection of the Revolution and other laws.

Article II:
Previous constitutional declarations, laws, and decrees made by the president since he took office on 30 June 2012, until the constitution is approved and a new People’s Assembly [lower house of parliament] is elected, are final and binding and cannot be appealed by any way or to any entity. Nor shall they be suspended or canceled and all lawsuits related to them and brought before any judicial body against these decisions are annulled. 

Article III:
The prosecutor-general is to be appointed from among the members of the judiciary by the President of the Republic for a period of four years commencing from the date of office and is subject to the general conditions of being appointed as a judge and should not be under the age of 40. This provision applies to the one currently holding the position with immediate effect.

Article IV:
The text of the article on the formation of the Constituent Assembly in the 30 March 2011 Constitutional Declaration that reads, "it shall prepare a draft of a new constitution in a period of six months from the date it was formed” is to be amended to "it shall prepare the draft of a new constitution for the country no later than eight months from the date of its formation."

 Article V:
No judicial body can dissolve the Shura Council [upper house of parliament] or the Constituent Assembly.

 Article VI:
The President may take the necessary actions and measures to protect the country and the goals of the revolution.

Article VII:
This Constitutional Declaration is valid from the date of its publication in the official gazette.

Protestst immediately sprung up by those not exactly thrilled with having another dictator in charge:

Opponents and supporters of Mohammed Morsi clashed across Egypt on Friday, the day after the president granted himself sweeping new powers that critics fear can allow him to be a virtual dictator. At least 15 were reported injured.

In a sign of deepening polarization, state TV reported that protesters burned offices of the political arm of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group on several cities on the Suez Canal east of Cairo and in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, while Islamists engaged with fistfights with Morsi opponents in southern Egypt.

Tens of thousands of pro-democracy activists meanwhile converged on Cairo's Tahrir Square, angered at the decisions by Morsi. The decrees include exempting himself from judicial review, as well as a panel writing the new constitution and the upper house of parliament, and the power to enact any other measure he deemed necessary to deal with a "threat" to Egypt's "revolution."

Some videos of the chaos that has ensued Morsi grabbing the very same powers that Egypt's citizens apparently thought they voted against.

Via Hot Air, Morrissey gets the quote of the day:

So we went from having a US-friendly dictator who managed to keep a lid on the Muslim Brotherhood and enforced the peace treaty with Israel, to having a dictator from the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of the Suez Canal.  And the only people who couldn’t apparently predict this very outcome were the people in the White House proclaiming their foreign policy as “smart power.”

[Update] Via Wapo:

In the capital Cairo, security forces pumped volleys of tear gas at thousands of pro-democracy protesters clashing with riot police on streets several blocks from Tahrir Square.

Tens of thousands of activists massed in Tahrir itself, angered at the decisions by Morsi. Many of them represent Egypt’s upper-class, liberal elite, which have largely stayed out of protests in past months but were prominent in the streets during the anti-Muabrak uprising that began Jan. 25, 2011.
Protesters chanted, “Leave, leave” and “Morsi is Mubarak ... Revolution everywhere.”

“We are in a state of revolution. He is crazy of he thinks he can go back to one-man rule,” one protester at Tahrir, Sara Khalil, said of Morsi. “This decision shows how insecure and weak he is because he knows there is no consensus.”

They were revolutionaries when it came to overthrowing  Mubarak but they are "troublemakers" now.

Funny how that works huh?

So far, I cannot find any White House reaction to Morsi's decree. I'll update if they decide it is comment worthy.

[Update] State Department issues a statement of "concern":

The decisions and declarations announced on November 22 raise concerns for many Egyptians and for the international community. One of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. The current constitutional vacuum in Egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances, and respects fundamental freedoms, individual rights, and the rule of law consistent with Egypt's international commitments. We call for calm and encourage all parties to work together and call for all Egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues peacefully and through democratic dialogue.

The Obama Dictatorship- Now Obama Wants To Tell Farmers What 'Chores' They Can Give Their Kids

By Susan Duclos

[Update 4/27/12] After news of this went viral across the Internet, The Obama administration has scrapped proposed rule Thursday that would have limited the work that children can perform on farms.

Good riddance.

Original post below

Obama has decreed that Americans must buy a product, insurance, as part of Obamacare .(Supreme Court is deciding right now whether that violates the constitution)

Obama has told wealthy business people that at some point they "have made enough money," the amount of which is determined by him and his administration.

Obama has determined that he can force religious institutes to go against their religious beliefs and force Americans to provide free birth control, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.

Obama has intruded on state's rights and blocked laws that would give states the power to control their borders and lessen their state's illegal immigration problems.

His wife Michelle thinks it is okay to tell Americans what they should or should not eat.

These are just a few examples showing that the Obama's believe it is alright to force their personal beliefs on to Americans.

Today we see yet another example of the Obama administration butting into the personal lives of a group of citizens. Farmers being told what chores they are allowed to give their children.

The Daily Caller:

A proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores has drawn plenty of criticism from rural-district members of Congress. But now it’s attracting barbs from farm kids themselves.
The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.

Read the entire article.

In the last three years, the Obama administration has intruded into American's lives more than any other time in history and it is time to put a stop to him, his wife, his agenda and his interference.

 In November, voters have that very opportunity.

Venezuelans Fight the Loss of Free Press

World freedoms dwindle as Danny Glover steps-in and cozies-up with Chavez, snatching the Bolivars right out of the hands of the people.

Venezuelans are in the streets fighting for free press. Their dictator, Hugo Chavez, has taken-down the most popular television station there, and replaced it with a state-sponsored station.

Glover thumbed his nose at Venezuelan liberties (he need not worry, American troops are protecting his) and aligned himself with deep pockets and dictators, revealing his true lack of concern for freedom, for the poor and the down-trodden.

Glover snagged his $20-$30 Million (depending on whose reporting you believe) before Venezuelan actors, anchors, agents, writers, camera crews, and grips lost their jobs. Three thousand people out of work and a station operating for 53 years is gone. Glover will make two movies in Venezuela, but no, the jobs for those in television will not be replaced by Glover's ventures. On Glover's love of America:
Glover was a signatory to "The Conscience of the World," a public letter signed by 160 artists which condemned the War in Iraq, and pledged support for the Communist dictatorship of Cuba. He also supports the Maoist group Not In Our Name (NION), which "pledges resistance to endless war, detentions and roundups, [and] attacks on civil liberties," and is directed by members of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
As Glover attempts to add legitimacy to dictatorships, Chavez controls the military, the legislature, the courts, most private industry, including our American oil companies - he also controls former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

This a day to remember just how precious are our freedoms and to fiercely battle back against those who would hastily feed the gators, hoping they will eat him last.

A closing thought on how we make freedom ours:
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free. Clarence Darrow
