CHILLING Video: Famous Liberal Law Professor
Warns Of Obama Dictatorship;
Urges Congress To Act

Lead Story by Matthew Burke, Tea Party News Network (TPNN) —
Respected liberal George Washington University Law School Professor, Jonathan Turley, speaking regarding the House GOP’s lawsuit against Obama for unconstitutionally using executive orders, issued a chilling statement on Wednesday, saying that “this could be a historic moment.”

Professor Turley said that the current Congress is losing its powers “to a kind of uber presidency.”

“Our system is changing, and this body [Congress] is the one branch that must act, if we are to reverse those changes,” Turley urged.

Turley said that there is a new model of government emerging, one in which our Founding Fathers thoroughly rejected, and pointed out that when Obama announced his unconstitutional dictatorial powers, Democrats in Congress cheered him on.

“A dominant presidency has occurred with very little opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevent.”

Referring to Congress bending over to give Obama its constitutional legislative powers, Turley said the Congress is moving from “self-loathing to self-destruction in a system that is in crisis.”

“The president’s pledge to effectively govern alone is alarming,” Turley told Congress. “And what is most alarming is his ability to fulfill that pledge.”

“When a president can govern alone, he can become a government unto himself, which is precisely the danger the Framers sought to avoid,” Turley warned.

Turley, who in earlier interviews has admitted that he agrees with Obama on many of his policies, said that the problem of the executive branch usurping power it hasn’t been given, didn’t start with Obama, or even George W. Bush, who he was also critical of during the Bush years. However, he asserted that it has now reached “tipping point,” while urging Congress to “aggressively seek to regain the ground” that it has lost.

Quoting Dorothy Boyd from the movie “Jerry McGuire,” Turley said, “You had me at hello,” when Congress asked him if the House GOP lawsuit against Obama was a good idea. “I do,” said Turley. “I do think it is a good idea,” he affirmed.

Turley proclaimed that the Constitution’s “Separation of Powers,” established by the Framer’s, wasn’t there to protect each of the three branches, but was there to “protect individual liberty,” so that any one branch wouldn’t get so powerful as to attack individual liberty.

Turley went on to compare Obama’s reasons for changing laws on his own, without congressional approval [see: Obamacare], as almost identical to those reasons given by King James I.

Turley admitted that he voted for Obama in 2008. He didn’t say whether or not he voted for him in 2012.

“There’s no license in the Madisonian system to ‘go it alone,’” Turley said. James Madison is considered the main author of the U.S. Constitution.

Turley said that Obama was attempting to be a “majority of one,” by “ordering changes on his own terms,” a dangerous proposition.

Turley then chastised Democrats (while not saying the word “Democrat”) who remain “silent” in the face of Obama’s unconstitutional dictates, saying that their silence could very easily backfire under a future presidency.

“This is not going to be our last president,” Turley warned, while saying that the next president of a different political ideology could change environmental or labor laws at his or her whim, if Obama is not stopped. » Full Story with Video...

» Will Police Crack Down On Immigration Protesters?
Activists planning mass protests in cities across America this weekend say they don’t expect to see any overzealous police in riot gear. But just in case, they’re asking protesters to bring their video cameras and smartphones to the protests scheduled for July 18 and 19. They want everything, especially any interaction with police or with counter-protesters, to be documented on video.. “They’re going to conceal the planes and the buses from the public. … That is the type of behavior I would expect from a smuggling operation,” he said. “Obama is running this thing like a classic smuggling operation.”..

» A New Scandal? White House Defies Congressional Subpoena, Keeps Top Obama Aide From Testifying
As the Obama administration remains mired in countless scandals of varying severities, one would presume they would try to fly below the radar of the American people who have grown alarmed at the increasingly unilateral direction presidency is taken in recent years. While President Obama operates outside the law repeatedly, apparently, the law holds no relevance for his subordinates either as the White House has refused to produce a top Obama aide who has been subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee.. The committee is investigating the possibility of taxpayer money being used by the office to support Democrat candidates during elections, including this year’s midterm elections....

» Oklahoma Governor Fallin: I Have ‘Right to Know’ What’s Happening With Illegals
Newsmax —
Gov. Mary Fallin said she owes it to Oklahoma citizens to know what was happening in her state with the housing of illegal immigrants. "I have the right to know. And, I need to be able to tell the citizens of our state what's going on," Fallin, a Republican, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Wednesday. Yet, when she went to the military facility at Fort Sill, where over 1,000 children are now being held, Fallin said she was told to "be silent and have a quick tour and be out of there." She said she encountered "an outside organization that had been contracted by the federal government that had set up what they wanted me to see." ...

» Israel Says No Gaza Ceasefire Deal
Israel Today —
Foreign media reports that Egypt has successfully brokered a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas are untrue, government officials told Israeli media Thursday afternoon. Israel had agreed to a five-hour humanitarian truce beginning Thursday morning. During that time, senior Israeli officials traveled to Cairo to take part in ceasefire talks. Jerusalem had already accepted an Egyptian truce proposal earlier in the week, but Hamas rejected the motion. When Israel agreed to the Egyptian ceasefire proposal on Tuesday, Netanyahu suggested that it was in line with Mofaz’s thinking: “We agreed to the Egyptian proposal in order to give an opportunity for the demilitarization of the [Gaza] Strip — from missiles, from rockets and from tunnels...

» Border Patrol Agents Being Widely Infected With Diseases; Union VP Warns All Of America At Risk
Natural News —
The illegal immigrant situation currently taking place at our nation's borders is rapidly spiraling out of control, according to reports. Border Patrol agents left and right are falling ill with diseases that haven't been seen in the U.S. for decades, and the Vice President of the National Border Patrol Union (NBPU) says all of America is now at risk.. All this political posturing, however, will be worthless once the resultant disease pandemic from this crisis fully manifests itself. If nothing is done to actually address this problem of diseased immigrant children flooding our borders by the thousands, and it is all just swept under the dubious rug of "compassion" with no real action taken, the public health consequences will be disastrous...

» Obama To Take Longest Vacation Yet In $12 Million Luxury Residence In Martha’s Vineyard
Now The End Begins —
It will be among the longest vacations Obama has taken and four times longer than the average 3.8 day vacation the typical American family takes. Nothing that the American taxpayer can provide is too good for the lavish tastes of the community organizer from Kenya and his family. Obama loves to parade his ostentatious luxury vacations in the face of the American people, and rub our noses in the fact that we are the ones paying for it all. Reports from the Bay State indicate that President Obama and his family will vacation August 9-24 at the $12 million, 8,100-square foot, beachfront home of a Democratic donor that includes a pool, hot tub, basketball and tennis court...

» ‘Christianity is Abhorrent’: More Atheistic Materials To Be Distributed In Public Schools
Christian News Network —
A federal judge has given a secular organization the green light to distribute more atheistic and anti-Christian materials to Florida public school students, in spite of the materials’ graphic content and offensive language.. “Christianity, besides being false, is also abhorrent,” it alleges. “It amazes me that you claim to love the god of the bible, a hateful, arrogant, sexist, cruel being who can’t tolerate criticism. I would not want to live in the same neighborhood with such a creature! The biblical god is a macho male warrior.” “Do you see why I do not respect the biblical message?” the booklet adds. “It is an insulting bag of nonsense. You have every right to torment yourself with such insanity—but leave me out of it. I have better things to do with my life.”...

» Islam’s Allah vs. Israel’s Jehovah
Crosstalk America Radio —
This edition of Crosstalk featured a recorded message by Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim, now a Christian pastor and recent candidate for Governor of the State of Washington.. warns of the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah.. There are many well-meaning Bible teachers defending a philosophy called Chrislam. Chrislam claims that both the Bible and the Qur'an are divine truth and that Muslims and Christians have a common God and a common Jesus. Is this concept scriptural? Is this the answer to peace that many are looking for or is it merely an attempt by Islam to remake the spiritual fabric of American society?

» Out Of Control: Obama’s Border Crisis Could Result In The Deaths Of Millions Of Americans
In this video, we explore this very real possibility...
More Videos From Western Journalism

By Kris Zane, Western Journalism —
We know the Obama Administration covered up a massive tuberculosis outbreak at an illegal alien camp on Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

The question is, will the continued coverup of illegal alien disease outbreaks lead to a nationwide pandemic?

While covering up tuberculosis is bad enough, the real danger is that tuberculosis mimics many of the same symptoms of the pneumonic plague—caused by the same bacterial strain—Yersinia pestis—as the bubonic plague, recently discovered in Denver, Colorado.

Could some Obama bureaucrat covering up a tuberculosis outbreak inadvertently be releasing the pneumonic or bubonic plague onto the American population? Think about the consequences: it would make the millions who died during the Middle Ages look mild. It wouldn’t be millions dead, but tens of millions—perhaps hundreds of millions. America would be decimated. In this video, we explore this very real possibility.
