When Robin Koerner wrote The USA Has a Monarchy. Let It Have a Glorious Revolution I assumed the title was mostly tongue in cheek. I was aware of the abuse of power by the current executive office, but to say it had become a monarchy seemed a bit extreme.
Rand Paul called President Obama a King in his statement in January 2013.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Monday that he is opposed to potential executive action by President Barack Obama on the issue of gun violence, calling such a move monarchical.
“I’m against having a king,” Paul told CBN News. “I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress — that’s someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch.”
These abuses, however, have grown to the point that Ted Cruz has actually itemized them to 76 lawless acts in his Legal Limit Report 4 .
So, you may ask- what is the response to these allegations from the White House?
At the recent White House Correspondents Dinner jokes were made about the abuses as if it is fodder for laughs, referring to it as “his Imperial presidency.” To put more salt in the wound, the White House had the audacity to tweet the picture of the President sitting on a throne like that of the show Game of Thrones to illustrate this in his speech.
Today, when I heard that the President spoke at a Walmart , I thought for a moment that maybe he was trying to show a semblance of humility and, perhaps, trying to relate to average Americans. To my disappointment, his speech was praising Walmart for their environmental efforts with no mention of the fact that Walmart’s carbon emissions increased by 2% last year not to mention their abuses towards women, minorities and LGBT employees. He spoke about his desire to push more environmental initiatives despite the fact that these have cost the U.S. millions of dollars with little to no environmental improvements.
He showed once again the kind of elitist corporate cronyist he truly is-so far from the “man of the people” he portrayed himself to be during his campaign.
There is no remorse for the consequences suffered here in the U.S. and throughout the world by an iron fisted regime. There is only disdain for those under the rule and as America asks for jobs and bread-they are laughed at and told “Let them eat cake”. Let the revolution begin. Liberte egalite fraternite!
