    [​IMG]An author and editor believes Barack Obama won't hesitate to use the power of government and non-government entities to stifle dissent so he can implement a radical socialist agenda on America, as well as make it very difficult for him to be defeated four years from now.


    Obama powerQuin Hillyer is an associate editor at the Washington Examiner and senior editor of The American Spectator. In an American Spectator column entitled "Saul Alinsky Takes the White House," Hillyer says Barack Obama will move quickly to consolidate power once he takes office in January.

    The American Spectator has as much credibility as the National Enquirer. Have you read its sorted history? :laugh:

    Stop the fear mongering!

    You mean like the fear mongering that we have lost our rights under the Bush admin? A rather contradictory position to take. Again you are free not to participate in the threads.

    He is almost history, so no fear on that point.

    Why don't you try reading some credible sources and stop trying to scare people.

    You are too young to know what the bad old days were like.

    By the same token you are fear not to mong us with fear, but you just keep doing it anyway. Have you considered counseling? :D

    Actually I'm wrong on Habeas Corpus. I was glad to find out just now that the Supreme Court in June 2008 struck down Bush's theft of one of our most basic rights.

    Supreme Court restores habeas corpus, strikes down key part of Military Commissions Act
    http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2008/06/12/boumediene/

    In a major rebuke to the Bush administration's theories of presidential power -- and in an equally stinging rebuke to the bipartisan political class which has supported the Bush detention policies -- the U.S. Supreme Court today, in a 5-4 decision, declared Section 7 of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 unconstitutional. The Court struck down that section of the MCA because it purported to abolish the writ of habeas corpus -- the means by which a detainee challenges his detention in a court -- despite the fact that the Constitution permits suspension of that writ only "in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion."


    The Court's ruling was grounded in its recognition that the guarantee of habeas corpus was so central to the Founding that it was one of the few individual rights included in the Constitution even before the Bill of Rights was enacted. As the Court put it: "the Framers viewed freedom from unlawful restraint as a fundamental precept of liberty, and they understood the writ of habeas corpus as a vital instrument to secure that freedom."

    Well thankyou for your acknowledgement!:laugh: :applause:

    i think there is hope for you yet..... and for anyone who is willing to keep check of themselves. I've had to retract..... and sometimes it was too late to post or find the error I dropped.

    (You are often confused with another poster i.e. Baptist Believer. Have you ever considered asking administration to change your handle to BaptistBeliever2 so there is less confusion between your postings?)

    Military Commissions Act of 2006; let us think about that. Wasn't that a law passed by Congress in response to an earlier court ruling?
