Is Obama using an FDR ploy to declare that our
"unemployment crisis" has created a "national
emergency" that would justify not holding the
Election of 2012? Trial balloon floated by Gov
Beverly Perdue of North Carolina.

North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue, a Democrat, garnered a ton of unwanted national attention because of very serious comments she made to the Rotary Club in Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday, Sept. 28. In her speech, she said, "I don't know if the president or any of the candidates for President, quite frankly, from either party, have (inaudible)...But from my perspective, when citizens and taxpayers went from (inaudible)...You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and to focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that." (The audio, provided by someone in the audience, is not good quality, and portions of the tape are inaudible.) But the essence is, Perdue, who was definitely floating a trial balloon to see how reception the American people would be to increasing Obama's term without the benefit of an election.

Perdue, and by extension, the guy in the White House, sees this scheme as something Republicans would buy into because it would let them vote against their constituency without the penalty of being thrown out of office for at least two years—or perhaps for the rest of their political lives.

On top of that, Democrats, for some strange reason, think if they can get a gaggle of stupid people to surrender their constitutionally-protected rights that will allow Barack Hussein Obama to simply issue an Executive Order and erase the Election of 2012. Perdue is not the first to suggest skipping a national election to convenience the Democratic Party (as Obama, a student of history, well knows).

In 1940, when he was going to test a third run for the White House against mounting opposition from both Republicans and Democrats alike arose, Franklin Delano Roosevelt used his talking heads to try to convince the Republican Party not to contest his reelection. The reasons? First, the unemployment crisis had become catastrophic and even those who voted for him in 1932 and 1936 were now disillusioned with the New Deal that was beginning to look more like the Raw Deal. Second, there was now an "international crisis" caused by Japan and Germany's aggression in Europe and Asia. FDR's advocates argued for an uncontested election because the national emergencies America faced, they said, were so catastrophic that America could not afford an inexperienced commander-in-chief at such an important chapter in history.

When I heard Gov. Perdue's remarks about the national crisis Obama faced reminded me of Admiral William Franklin "Frank" Knox, who ran as the GOP vice presidential nominee with Wendell Wilkie in 1936. Knox favored the GOP not contesting FDR's re-election. As pathetic as Wilkie ran (the Electoral vote notwithstanding—449 to 82 for FDR) in popular votes, 1936 was a close election. Roosevelt came close to losing several industrial States. The votes were that close. But, they were "winner-take-all-electoral-vote" States, so the Electoral Votes made it appear as though the New Deal was popular with the working man when roughly 45% of those who wanted to work could not find a job (although the official unemployment rate in 1939 was 25%).

FDR, like all of the social progressive presidents (and one unconstitutional usurper) before and after him, did not oversee a free market economy through a "truly-free and honest" free enterprise system. They manipulated the US economic system based on the tenets of dictatorial mercantilism. The mercantile economic system, created by Alexander Hamilton and fashioned by America's first dictator, Abraham Lincoln, the Jacobin Whigs and the Free Soilers who merged into what was named the Republican Party. Mercantilism prospered through the Civil War as Lincoln waged a civil war not to end slavery, but to destroy States rights and force the States to succumb to the edicts of the federal government. But it was a small victory since the States retained the power to kill any bill offered by the House (although the Jacobin Republicans unconstitutionally ratified the 14th Amendment that bound the States with the same Bill of Rights restrictions the bound the federal government.

(The following, while not pertinent to the discussion on contemporary politicians attempting to further erase the Constitution, sheds additional light on the fraudulent ramifications of the 16th and 17th Amendments which is pertinent to this discussion..) When the Jacobins proposed the 14th Amendment, only the northeastern industrial States, which wanted federal supremacy over the States from the birth of the Republic, flawlessly voted to ratify it. The States viewed the 14th Amendment as the abrogation of States rights. In the South, the Amendment was ratified at the point of a bayonet. Fearful of the federal government which had just concluded a 4-year civil war to establish federal supremacy, most of the States which submitted flawed resolutions of the proposed 14th Amendment knew they would have to be rejected by Secretary of State William H. Seward. Instead, Seward simply ignored the flaws which made almost every resolution a different amendment, and certified the 14th Amendment as lawfully ratified on July 28, 1868.

Why would the States do that when they could have simply rejected it? Because the federal government, which had just overthrown State supremacy, frightened State leaders—who were so terrorized by the invisible money power whose financial wherewithal could abruptly end their political careers—voted to ratify the 16th Amendment, believing Seward would be forced to reject their flawed resolutions. The irony in the fraud perpetuated on the American people by the princes of industry and the barons of banking in the fraudulent ratification of the 14th Amendment was that the flawed amendment was used by Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State Philander Knox and his Solicitor General Joshua Reuben Clark to show that the flaws in the 14th Amendment were not legally important since they did not prevent it from being certified as ratified.) Those typographical and verbiage flaws exist only in the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments. Those are the only amendments to the Constitution which usurped the supremacy of the States and, by corrupting the federal court system, assured the federal government's dominance over the States.

For 77 years, from 1836 to 1913, the States refused to reauthorize a central bank in the United States. The States relented only because, before enacting the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the federal government unconstitutionally certified, as ratified, the 16th and 17th Amendments. The 17th Amendment took the US Senator out from under the thumb of the State legislators and put them under the purview of the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business. It was an arrangement they liked. States rights disappeared on April 8, 1913. Lincoln's war against States rights was a victory for federal supremacy. Which was the whole purpose of the Civil War.

The 16th Amendment created a federal income tax—a right, heretofore, not possessed by the federal government although, from 1862 to 1878, the Jacobin Congress legislated a blatantly unconstitutional federal income tax. The Executive Branch argued before the US Supreme Court that an income tax was imperative to protect the nation in a time of great civil unrest. And the Whig/Federalist dominated Supreme Court yielded to the White House just as Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes yielded to FDR whenever Roosevelt used his trite, worn-out 1929 national emergency to promulgate his merchantistic agenda. FDR's "national emergency" became Obama's "national crisis."

Presidents are the greatest students of history. Unlike your children and grandchildren who get to see only the revisionist's view of history (made to fit the future that is being tailored for the American people by the princes of industry and politics, and the barons of banking and business, politicians learn history as it really was. For example, all of us watched as Obama and the Democratic leadership in the Senate created the imaginative Super Committee to solve the debt and job crisis. In the closing days of the 35th Congress, the Senate promulgated what was called the Committee of Thirteen (formed by Sen. Lazarus Whitehead Powell [D-KY] and Sen. Charles Sumner [R-MA] on Dec. 6, 1860 to try to keep South Carolina from seceding from the nation. They failed. A second group, called the Committee of Thirty-three (one Congressman for each of the 33 States) was formed in a last ditch effort, a month before a man with a 39% mandate from the voters was sworn in as the 16th President of the United States, to restore the Union. It failed as well because the secession of 11 States had nothing to do with slavery and everything to do with States rights, and the supremacy of the States over the federal government.

The princes of industry and the barons of banking and business radically altered the free enterprise system by creating what can only be called "crony capitalism" that mirrors a free market society, but without laissez-faire principles. Crony capitalism depends on [a] a currency not tied to the gold standard, [b] a central bank which can create money at will, [c] taxpayers to carry the debt they spend, and [d] a cooperative Congress and White House to distribute the nation's wealth to a select group of industrialists, bankers and business elites through what we now recognize as a form of corporate welfare that financially enriches those who donate heavily to the war chests of whomever wins the keys to the government's piggy bank.

Mercantilism is wrapped up in the fabric of socialism. Mercantilism is the belief that economies work best when government intervenes in all areas of economic life. Control over the population comes from a corrupt collaboration between the princes of industry and politics, and the barons of banking and business.

It was important to know how—and why—the federal government works. And why a career politician would risk her career to advocate such a breach of constitutionality that it would likely end her career.

Perdue came under attack for suggesting that the 2012 election be suspended until the nation's economy improves—sometime after 2014. She waffled after radio talk show guru Rush Limbaugh said she was dumb, stupid, bumbling and foolish, and Glenn Beck attacked her lack of constitutional integrity in The Blaze. "Soak-the-rich Perdue" who, like Islamo-fascist Obama, is in bed with socialists who now control the United States government, countered by saying the remark about postponing the election was sarcasm, not a real suggestion. A survey taken by The Blaze confirms that 97% of the American people think she's a liar. She was Obama's opening salvo to simply erase the Election of 2012 and let him continue to rule by Executive Order.

Of course, if that happened, the Election of 2010 would be the last free election ever held in the United States of America. Barack Hussein Obama, who has nothing except contested evidence to support his contention that he was born anywhere near the United States, appears to be suffering from a FDR phobia—the fear of not getting reelected.

Aside from the traditional reelection killer—an official US Dept. of Labor total unemployed rate of 16.4% as of Aug. 31, 2011Obama knows he has not succeeded in outrunning his lack of birth bonafides, several States have, or are contemplating, laws to require long-form birth certificate verification before being placed on the ballot. With his popularity plummeting even with core Democratic voters, Obama is attempting to shore up the far left support that provided most of his legitimate votes in 2008, Obama killed Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and has created the American Jobs Act legislation that contains two provisions that should not be in any federal legislation. First is a provision, Section I, Title 3, Part II, Subtitle D, Subsection 374, that prohibits employers from not considering unemployed or non-qualified applicants, and providing relief to unemployed or nonqualified people who are not hired. Second is a clause, Section I, Title 3, Part II, Subtitle D, Subsection 376 kills a State's sovereign immunity if they accept funds from Obama's jobs bill.

Anyway you look at it, it's clear from America's reaction to Gov. Perdue, the American people are not going to sit idly by and let Obama write an Executive Order and postpone the Election of 2012 until the jobs picture gets better in the United States. Particularly when most Americans believe that as soon as Obama loses his job the unemployed American worker will find one. Well, for whatever it's worth, once again, you have my two cents worth on this subject. Until next time...
