    1st comment on the article sums it up:
    Empire news is satire. Now would obammy want to do this? Possibly, but that would may be the straw that breaks the camels back and starts a civil war.

    "I saw it on the internet so it must be true."

    I always get a chuckle out of people who repost whatever shit floats along and then have the balls to think everyone else is a "sheep".

    Oh guys....don't be too harsh on my good buddy -06. I had those kind of Chicken Little moments four times during G.Dubya Bush's administrations, when Representative Jose Serrano (Dem) introduced Bills on four occasions to repeal the 22nd Ammendment to the US Constitution. Thank Zeus, that all the Bills died in committee.

    The POTUS does not have the power to repeal the 22nd Ammendment by Executive Order. The repeal of the 22nd Ammendment would require such a Bill passing both the US Congress and the US Senate, and only after further being ratified by no less than three quarters of US state legislatures.

    We ARE talking about the most unconstitutional use of executive authority by any President in American History here!
    Its far more likely that he would stage a NATIONAL EMERGENCY and hold on that way!

    On real hot news days that Obama has real negative stories out there, I go to CNN and MSNBC and read the comments on the story. People still justify, praise and defend his behavior. Now this whole idea of extending the Presidents term I swear comes up ever year. And every year it gets shelved. There are people that would support the idea and there is a growing number that still believe Obama is the savior. Many are growing to believe that the current Constitution is an old fashion document and needs to be revised or done away with. Just like Tom Sawyer had the n- word in the book, they are now banning the book and/or revising it, does anyone care? It seems like baby steps are taking place and some day this really may happen and many will just support it or not really care.

    It is easy to justify, it may not be rational but most can justify the most unsound thinking.

    I spoke about this "layering effect" back in 2003 in a video series I used to make. The concept of a Constitutional Dictatorship is nothing new. It dates all the way back to ancient Rome, where the few in charge could "temporarily" gain extraordinary power. Naturally, we find those with these powers rarely, if ever relinquish it after the crisis has abated. The same technique was used in Germany, it was called "Article 48" I believe, but this is from memory and I could be wrong. In Britain, it's known as the "Defense of the Realm Act", and for these United States it is known as "War Powers Act". We've been in a dictatorship since 1933. Some could even rightfully claim since Lincoln, but I stick with 1933 since that is when the (current) monetary system was granted authority to operate.

    Everything that is happening beyond this point is just a means to layer the control for legitimizing the system. Essentially, think of it as a series of protective layers. We know the only way to eliminate the Emergency of War and no longer have these private banks and essentially a tyrant in office, is for the President himself to declare the emergency over, rescind the declarations, and restore Constitutional authority. That is the ONLY way it can happen, because Congress made the President the supreme dictator, with Title 12, Sec 95(b), as I explained in EWP. -> FDR and Emergency War Powers (Explained)

    If the control "matrix" can be seen as legitimate by the people, then their job is done. Right now, most still believe they have a Constitution, liberty and freedom with baseball and apple pie. We see slowly, over time, those liberties are being incrementally exchanged for privileges and increased surveillance. We see less freedom, more police state and nanny state governance, and we won't slow down, only increase in momentum. The entire process is meant to "force the issue" on its own, to get YOU to do all the hard work with very little resistance. They already have the dictatorship. They just need YOU to accept it, promote it and defend it.
