Like any good dictator Obama is consolidating his power:mad:




The Senate is poised to confirm Robert L. Wilkins to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit — the final battle in a bruising war between the White House and Senate Republicans over the "second highest court in the land."

The D.C. Circuit deals with cases against the federal government. Anyone who has a complaint with a regulatory agency or wants to challenge an excess of the federal government usually winds up there.

"We will fill up the D.C. Circuit one way or another," Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said in a speech March 10, in which he attacked Republican-led filibusters against President Barack Obama’s nominees as "specious."

In November, Obama effectively gained control of the 11-member court when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid triggered the "nuclear option" — reducing the threshold needed to stop a filibuster from 60 votes to a simple majority.

Within weeks, Obama nominees Patricia Millett and Cornelia Pillard were confirmed for the court. Wilkins' confirmation will likely be completed by the Senate no later than February, giving the court its full complement of judges.

Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said that because the D.C. Circuit dealt with cases related to the Environmental Protection Agency, he had concerns about what nominees had said about the coal and utilities industries that are so important to his state

Not only this. I heard the Obama has all the info needed to track down rethugs who post on message boards all day long about how much they hate Obama.

Obama's jack booted thugs are coming to your house Katz. Well, you and a few others.

And this kangaroo court is going to make it legal

That is just the way we roll now under this dictator.

Will we be reading about your untimely demise soon?

Some enjoy sitting back and marveling at people who will steal their liberties. You must be one of those people. Too many of your kind in the country these days:(

For some reason I find your paranoid reaction incredibly humorous.

It's just another day in nutterville Zeke, on a message board populated by a slew of anti-Obama posters who have nothing better to do with themselves 24/7 except anonymously post inane drivel. But hey, I am sure they feel empowered by it in some way.

Right, the man is doing his job as required in the constitution, only in paranoidville is this seen as some kind of unprecedented power grab.

It's the coordinated effort with Reid in the Senate in changing the rules allowing Obama to put in the most radical of the Left Wing Judges.

Of course you all know that.

Radical left-wing judges? Give me a fucking break. The only radical thing here is a bunch of paranoid teabaggers doing everything they can to keep benches vacant and the legal system crippled. If they had just handled each appointment on an individual basis and actually made a case that this one or that one was "too liberal" then none of this would have happened but they had to go whole hog and block all of them without adequate individual explanation. Extraordinary assaults on the constitutional process require an extraordinary response.

Do you even know any of these Radical left wing judges? Make the case that they are dangerously leftist because your shitty party has not, they just assumed that Obama would get communists or something.

None of the three judges were considered very liberal. No one found anything that would make them radical judges.

In May 1992, Wilkins was in a rented vehicle with three other family members when they were pulled over by Maryland State Police for violating the speed limit.[8] At the time, the Maryland State Police Department instructed their officers to focus on black males in expensive vehicles when conducting traffic stops.[9] Wilkins filed suit in the case of Wilkins v. Maryland State Police and eventually won a "landmark" settlement against the state of Maryland.[9][10] As part of the case settlement, Maryland was required to maintain records of all traffic stops that resulted in vehicle search requests.[9] The case helped bring national attention to the practice of racial profiling and helped popularize the term "driving while black".[11][

Why would any 'dictator' want to silence you or katzndogz? The hyperbole and ridiculous conspiracy theories offered by the likes of you two, and others on the idiot fringe, don't create converts to your far side of the political spectrum; they chase the thoughtful and educated citizens away.

One, they are not radical (while as you are reactonary) and, two, the efforts are legal,

Win some elections.

Let the reactionary far right wing nuts keep posting.

They educate normal Americans on the weirdness of the far right.

Your elected president has done part of his job in exactly the same way as most previous elected presidents have done it.

It strikes me, if the 'anti ****** in the white house' lot can't manage better than this, Obama must be doing a reasonable job.
Every argument I've heard against Obama is always about something stupid, his birth certificate is false, he was totally responsible for a group of people in another country who rioted and so on.
Absolutely nothing of substance, just stupid mud slinging.

Frankly, you're pathetic.
