    Res. RT network is Vlad Putins Russian TV.
    Take what they say with a grain of salt.
    Hillary will NEVER be President
    Obama is a FORMER President
    Joe Biden is in Scranton eating paste.

    Rez, are you that ignorant about your own country that you don't even know that the POTUS can NOT pass laws? Only Congress can do that on the national level, and currently the Dems control the US Senate and the Reps control the US House of Representatives. That would mean that any national laws to "make it hard to protest" would have to be passed by Dems and Reps.

    Moreover, most laws are local ones anyways, passed by local or state governments.

    When was the last time that the POTUS declared war? Never. Congress has okayed every single long term military action that the US has engaged in since WW II. The only exceptions may have been the invasion of Greneda and the ousting of Manuel Noreiga but those actions only lasted weeks IIRC.

    As Commander-in-Chief, the POTUS has the right to send American troops anywhere in the world to protect American interests. That's been an undisputed presidential right since Thomas Jefferson sent the US Marines to lesson the Barbary pirates.

    "forcing congress to agree"? How? The GOP controls the House of Representatives. Why are they doing Obama's bidding if they hate him as they all claim?

    Both Penetta, and Obama have told Congress that they no longer 'matter' and that any military action taken out on behalf of the US will be authorized by the UN and NATO. And if the POTUS feels the 'need' to inform congress of such action he might.

    Next up, it is now a law, that if you protest with in the vicinity of any person with secret service protection, thats a felony.

    While on that subject, the super congress Obama created, has never been 'disbanded' and, congress, is actually left out of the loop regarding most of what the executive branch does.

    Given Obama's stance and his efforts to suppress the rights guaranteed in the First, Second, and Eighth Amendments, I don't think this is far fetched at all. Probably why Res asked if it was true.

    Between bush and obama, we as citizens of this once great nation have been reduced to nothing more than slaves and guinea pigs. Hitler could only DREAM of the technology that is in force today, against americans... Anyone who feels the US is not following in the foot steps of 1930's germany, isnt paying attention....which sadly, is 2/3s of the country
