Obama Warns ‘I Am Ready To Bypass Congress’ With Executive Orders

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must, his top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday’s State of the Union speech.

Obama faces a politically divided Congress on Tuesday and will use his annual address to demand expanded economic opportunity. Absent legislative action, the White House is telling lawmakers that the president is ready to take unilateral action to close the gap between rich and poor Americans.


“I think the way we have to think about this year is we have a divided government,” said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser. “The Republican Congress is not going to rubber-stamp the president’s agenda. The president is not going to sign the Republican Congress’ agenda.”

So the White House is eyeing compromise on some priorities, Obama advisers said. But the president is also looking at executive orders that can be enacted without Congress’ approval.

“The president sees this as a year of action to work with Congress where he can and to bypass Congress where necessary,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

The act-or-else posture bristled Republicans.

“The president has sort of hung out on the left and tried to get what he wants through the bureaucracy as opposed to moving to the political center,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the GOP Senate leader.

Added Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.: “It sounds vaguely like a threat, and I think it also has a certain amount of arrogance.”

With campaigns for November’s election on the horizon, there’s scant reason for the White House to be optimistic about Republican support for measures to revive a bipartisan immigration bill that has passed the Senate, an increased minimum wage or expanding prekindergarten programs.

Republicans looking to wrest control of the Senate and keep their majority in the House instead want to keep the focus on the struggling economy and Obama’s stewardship of it. The GOP is pinning hopes that voter frustration remains high and punishes Democrats on the ballot for Obama’s tenure.

“His economic policies are not working,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

The White House has been signaling to Republicans that it would not wait for Congress to act. It also is betting Obama’s backers will rally behind his plans. “When American jobs and livelihoods depend on getting something done, he will not wait for Congress,” Pfeiffer wrote in an email to Obama supporters Saturday.

Following the speech, Obama will travel to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Tennessee to promote the proposals he introduces Tuesday evening.

Pfeiffer appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and “Fox News Sunday.” Carney spoke with ABC’s “This Week.” McConnell was interviewed on Fox. Paul spoke with CNN and NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Cruz spoke to CBS’ “Face the Nation.” source – Yahoo

  • Congress and we the people need to let Obama know that he was elected president not king. He wasn’t placed on a throne!

    • On the contrary sir James, the elite install the players in the election game, voting is a kind of fun farce. In that respect Obama was indeed enthroned by them, not by the populace. Don’t you know that the Illuminati control this world, and that their god is Lucifer? Anyway, their final global goal is the demonic NWO! 🙁

      P.S. Obama and his colleagues are merely puppets 😉

      • Hey Mark,

        Well said.

        This will be right up your alley.

        Pine Gap NT Australia, apparent advanced communications tracking and drone centre. I’m not really in to the UFO thing, but there is some twisted stuff going on here, its so remote out there, they can do whatever they want!

        • Down Under Dog: It doesn’t matter who the believe Satan is there God, Satan only share his power with Satan, elite believe their doing it for themselves, but in the end they all end up in the same place, Lake of fire!

          Oh! Your daughter, she’ll learned by your actions, how you show her how you love Jesus Christ. Each night kneel with her, show her how to pray to Jesus. At each meal, say your prayers being thankful to God for your meals.

          • I agree, eventually his goal is to destroy us all……

            And with regards to my daughter, I will take it from someone who is a father 😉 , and I will be spending every moment I can to show her how Christ is.

            My Christian influence will be greater than the worlds, I can not fail with that.

        • DUD: I’ve heard of Pine Gap, but not familiar with it, as like Area 51 it’s shrouded deep in mystery.

          As for the UFO thing, I do believe it’s more real than you might think. However it’s all tied into hidden angelic agendas. And I only know from what my web research reveals in such beyond bible matters 😉

          • Yep, its the Area 51 of Australia, and its been there for 50 odd years or so, run by the U.S.A and Aussie governments.

            If they have built such devices, then I have to see them to believe them, but I won’t deny it, I’m still on the fence with that one 🙂

  • NTEB, please explain to me how many other Presidents has over ride the Congress and the Senate?

  • Welcome Comrade Obama, Communism welcomes you.

    When Barry says he’s willing to “compromise”, what he really means is that he will eventually get what he wants…

  • Obama CANNOT do this, Because it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL to BYPASS CONGRESS with his ILLEGAL Executive Orders!! This is TREASON and TYRANNY! Folks DO NOT TRUST in Obama’s PATHOLOGICAL LIES!! Obama is a DEMONIC, SATANIC Filled Soul!! Obama is a Devout Evil Islamic Muslim!! Obama is ANTI-Christian, ANTI-American, ANTI-Israel, ANTI-American FREEDOMS, ANTI-Guns!!


    Ye Must be BORN AGAIN through Jesus Christ to enter into Heaven!! Jesus Christ is the Only TRUE MESSIAH, SAVIOR, KING of kings, LORD of lords, ALPHA and OMEGA, the FIRST and the LAST!! Jesus Christ is the ONLY MESSIAH, SAVIOR anyone Should TRUST NOW!!

    • Oh yes he can, and he’s not the only one in the game 🙁




      P.S. There is a huge deception occurring now 🙁

      • MRH, So explain to us why can’t the Vatican be the antichrist.
        The seat of the Vatican is the antichrist. Use the roman numeral and convert to numbers.
        VICARIUS FILII DEI (latin)
        V = 5
        I = 1
        C = 100
        A = 0
        R = 0
        I = 1
        U (V) = 5
        S = 0
        Total added = 112

        F = 0
        I = 1
        L = 50
        I = 1
        I = 1
        Total added = 53

        D = 500
        E = 0
        I = 1
        Total added = 501

        ADD ALL 3 AND YOU GET 666

        • By the way, VICARIUS FILII DEI (latin) means, The son of God, as in the Vatican claiming that the Pope is Jesus in the flesh, Such Blashphemy, don’t you agree.

          • Engineer: There are two end time beasts; Antichrist (secular), False Prophet (religious) 😉

            By the growing evidence…

            Barack Obama = Antichrist
            Pope Francis I = False Prophet

            P.S. Exactly how soon the end is none know, but the fact that the two end time players on stage now indicates we may be near the edge. However as of yet no Jewish temple stands, nor evidence of any certain peace treaty.

  • Well, I don’t claim to be a Bible scholar but the book of Daniel says that the attributes of the antichrist will be of a person who forsakes women and will perform miracles to deceive the masses,. I don’t see where OB falls into that category. The man likes women and men! He’s gay, and I don’t mean happy gay. 😯 Now, on the other hand, the Vatican seems to have these attributes. I guess we can agree to disagree. 😎 🙂

    • Well, Revelation 13 states that there are two end time beasts. From direct reading Daniel only mentions one king, unless the implication is two? Anyway, the saints are first overcome by the Antichrist, and then afterward the world is enslaved by the False Prophet. And from the looks of things, Obama is already cutting down the church.. yes?

      P.S. The church doesn’t not suffer the mark of the beast 🙂

      Anyway, from a recent email inquiry…

      Even though we see the technology for the ‘MARK OF THE BEAST’ rapidly advancing believers will never see it’s implementation. The rapture happens in Rev 11 an the MARK is handed out in Rev 13.

      As for the rest – please listen to this. You will find all the confusion melt away…

        Well, that’s something we can really agree to disagree. I am not a believer of the pre trib Rapture teachings. False teachings if you ask me. I just can’t picture a loving heavenly father taking some saints now and then coming back for the rest. It’s all one event when Jesus comes back again. I will leave it at that before I piss off the Pastor. 😯 :mrgreen:

  • scott e

    Obama is the Devil and Jesus will take him straight to hell were he belongs
