“By Hook or By Crook”: Determined Obama Vows to Go Beyond Executive Actions to Rule

The “pen and phone” president, who has consistently relied upon a complicit media and arbitrary power to achieve his agenda, will not be content with using executive actions and executive orders alone.

He has already been willing to go beyond the bounds of the Constitution. Now, he will do even more…

Controversially, President Obama announced in a speech that he was using the powers of the Executive Branch to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation, to ban ammunition for AR-15s, ban the importation and sale of AK-47s and even to seize a broad range of assets including farms, industry, infrastructure and food during a declared emergency. He also used the power of his pen to delay implementation of his own pet project, Obamacare.

Just last week, Obama issued an executive action requiring government agencies to reduce their carbon emissions by a whopping 40% – with no input from Congress and involvement with the public.

Last year, as SHTF reported, some Democrats even created a caucus to draft executive orderserr, umm actions… for Obama to sign, in attempt to mandate “full employment” via the stroke of a pen!

In 2011, Obama defiantly stated:

“Without a doubt, the most urgent challenge that we face right now is getting our economy to grow faster and to create more jobs… We can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will.”

The White House page, apparently abandoned in 2012, boasts about countless “actions” that Obama has taken during his six-plus years in office to “support middle class Americans” – the very sector most rapidly eroding from the American landscape and being hardest hit by Washington and Wall Street’s economic actions.

Not hard to see the net effect of that kind of “help.” With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Now, President Obama has renewed his promise to do more… and complete his agenda in spite of Constitutional “obstacles” in Congress and a very critical public opinion that has fatigue from the era of “hope and change.”

In an interview with Huffington Post, Obama vowed to use “administrative” powers or the apparent power to “convene the private sector” to get his business done “by hook or by crook” (sounds like picking winners and losers a la Solyndra all over again):

“What we have done though is consistently looked for additional opportunities to get stuff done. Wherever we see a possibility of increasing wages, creating more jobs, making sure that more people are able to access opportunity, we’re gonna seize it. And we’re going to, wherever possible, try to reach out to Republicans and see if they can work with us. And where they’re not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector.

“By hook or by crook, we’re going to make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”

“Those are going to be the measures by which I look back and say whether I’ve been successful as president.”

For the record, ruling by whatever means necessary means being a dictator. Pure and simple.

These are the progressive promises that Obama has vowed to accomplish – even in his waning days of office – by any means necessary.

As with most government actions, those means are more likely to come by way of “crook” than by “hook“:

Though, there are certainly many ways that government can hook you as well, with plenty of strings attached. That is definitely something that bureaucracy is very good at.

Here’s video of the full interview, if anyone can stomach it:

    Sad state of affairs this country is in???

    • Calgagus says:

      “By hook or by crook, we’re going to make sure that when I leave this office, that the seas will part and I, King Hussein Obama will be ruler of the world.”

      What a sick fucktard the half-breed is.

      • sixpack says:

        No, I couldn’t stomach watching the video.

        • OutWest says:

          Obama isn’t that shrewd,
          He’s being prompted by the PTB.

          • The Old Coach says:

            “Obama isn’t that shrewd,
            He’s being prompted by the PTB.”

            Make that TELEprompted.

            Didja see where Cruz was doing a speech without even a lecturn, much less a releprompter, so CNN tried to nail him for wearing a wireless mike?

          • True. He is a controlled puppet of the NWO elites. He is only in office because they put him there. He was a nobody. Nobodies do not become President unless the top of the pyramid elites want him to be. It is no coincidence nor by his own hard work that he made it that office. Once in the office you only do as your puppet masters tell you to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Or else.

          Sixpack, I can’t even stomach any pictures of the african virus online, never mind a video.

          calling Harry Reid .. hey he’s only got one eye now..maybe ? maybe someone said enough is enough to him?

          hey one can dream , right?

    • yourmothermaswrong says:

      “For the record, ruling by whatever means necessary means being a dictator. Pure and simple.”

      “For the record,” executive orders can be overturned.

      The Supreme Court can do so through a case that is brought in front of them, and Congress can do so by passing legislation that would conflict with the order or by refusing to approve funding to enforce it.

      “For the record,” so called “conservative republicans” will do nothing to stop “executive orders.”

      “For the record,” the GOP is a drooling dog just waiting for their opportunity to enact their “executive orders.”

      BTW: Has anyone noticed the hydra is mulling “mandatory voting?”

      Exercise your right to not vote while you still have it because your benevolent government is going to criminalize the act of non-voting.

      Domestic terrorist!

      USA… USA… USA!

      • durangokidd says:

        Let’s give this SOB the speedy trial that is his right, for Treason; then if you are one of the jury, exercise your right to vote and convict him.

        Death to the New World Order. Its totally Constitutional. 🙂

      • Billy Hill says:

        Not to worry. The Republicans will save us!!!

        (I just thew up in my mouth a little)

        • Justice says:

          In order to determine what the PTB will do, I go by the opposite of what they say. For example when Bush said he wanted to spread Democracy around the world, that meant that he was going to destroy Democratic Government.

          It must be clear that we do not live in a Constitutional Republic anymore. The Congress could exert it constitutional power to counter this destruction but choose to remain complicit. At this point it is difficult not to consider everyone involved as traitors to the constitution (to which they swore to uphold and defend).

          The final part of my rant is that a primary purpose of government is to secure the borders. A country that does not secure its borders ceases to be a nation.

          From now on I will only refer to this nation by its Biblical name: New Babylon!

      • Pissed Off Granny says:


        A quick look at the autobiographies of the stewardship of the Weekly Standard shows what a joke that pitiful organization really is.

        Washington insider Rhinos. “Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of News Corp, financed the creation of the Weekly Standard”.

      • Anonymous says:

        For the record, executive orders can, but won’t be, overturned, because the supreme court and congress are a bunch of no balls, spineless jellyfish afraid to wipe their own ass unless ovomit tells them to.

    • BigB says:

      “Sad state of affairs this country is in???”

      Although I am sure at one time or another there has been a President who did more to destroy this country in the name of liberalism it sure hasn’t been in my lifetime. My father who passed a couple of years ago at the age of 79 said the same.


      • PWYP says:

        If you look up the term “by hook or by crook,” the meaning is:

        1. any means necessary.
        2. fair means or foul.

        So Barry the Usurper is stating he will stoop to anything “foul,” which could be construed by folks as up to and including criminal acts or treason, to accomplish his masters’ goals, with the warning to all US citizens that could be construed to mean he intends to overthrow our government.

        What more does Congress need?

  2. Nick says:

    Is anyone surprised by Barry’s comments?

  3. Confederate says:

    obama is the biggest joke of a president, problem is he’s not funny, he’s pathetic.

  4. A year and a half is still a long way to go.

    • Breathial says:

      Until what? His replacement will be every bit as crooked and corrupted as he is- if not more so.

      This won’t be fixed by voting at the ballot box. It will be, by voting from the ammo box; nothing less will do.

      Of course, that’s why they’re trying to ban ammo. It won’t matter, as private citizens have vastly more in the way of ammo, weapons and trained shooters, than .gov thugs.

      The .gov thugs are on very thin ice, and they know it.

  5. aljamo says:

    Obama is a crook, no doubt. Every move he has made is to continue the wars and keep the lies flowing to protect the crooks that preceded him. All the laws enacted since 9-11 are for one purpose only, to shield the perps from scrutiny and build a military force to protect them from the America people. They destroy and murder truth and make Americans the enemy. Obama was and is the stealth candidate, placed there to further destroy our nation. Now the country is facing Jeb or Hillary. Man, the American people will fall for anything. Bring back the hippies!

    • vincent says:

      And the GOP is the opposition party?? They fund his decrees, they give him what he wants, they roll over for his radical nominees (Holder, Lynch, Kagan, Sotomeyor), they line up to play golf with Obama, they craft their dangerous bills at night, with no oversight…

      So the african virus has a phone and a pen? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I’M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Scared! [SARCASM]

      • HI BH!
        Our history lesson for today;

        “Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.”
        — John Locke

        “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
        -– Woodrow Wilson, 1913

        “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”
        — Theodore Roosevelt 1913

        “By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.”
        –Adolf Hitler

        “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”
        –Albert Einstein

        We play checkers and they play chess.
        Learn from history or be condemned to repeat it.

  6. Crat says:

    The House has the “power of the purse”, and Republicans have the majority there, as well as in the Senate. There is also the debt ceiling, which Congress can refuse to raise. In other words, both parties are complicit in the mess this country has achieved. They “all” share the blame.

  7. Ruteger says:

    Everyone keeps saying Obama this, Obama that. Actually, the finger of blame belongs to Congress and Congress alone. The Founding Fathers foreknew a turd like Barry would come along, which is why we are supposed to have 3 branches of government to keep each pf the others in check.

    Also, let’s not forget the Idiot American Voter that elected this creep TWICE.

  8. He does not care about USA. He is a traitor, piece of shit.

  9. Quintus Arrius says:

    We keep you alive to serve this ship… Row well and live!

    • cranerigger says:

      Quintus Arrius. Great comment about us being slaves on Roman ships. As long as we can keep up and continue rowing (paying taxes), Caesar and the Senate will allow us to live. Government control of the health care system (Obamacare) may not be in our best interest. Easy to get rid of the slaves that can no longer row the boat.

  10. GrandpaSpeaks says:

    Can you hear me now? Damn Obamaphone, what about now? NOW?

  15. SoapDish says:

    Slap, slap, slapping you in the face American lemmings. Normalcy bias is so rampant in the United States. What is it going to take for the norm to wake up to the deception and corruption of those that claim they know best?
    Sad state of affairs hand and hand.
    Glad there are those that see what is coming and preparing accordingly. Make every day count, because know one truly knows when the final nail will be pounded into the U.S. coffin????

    • Anti Snakbarian says:


      People won’t wake up until the food runs out and / or their cell phones stop functioning.

      If and when these things occur, they will finally be forced to look around and by then it’s too late.

      There are ENTIRE families in my tiny town where their kids never go anywhere or do anything other than TV, texing, etc.
      Some of them I’ve only seen a couple times a year.

      When we were growing up, we never wanted to be cooped up in the house and we never ate fast food.

      Things have changed a LOT in over the past twenty years!

      That day is coming.

  17. vtfree2 says:

    The entire apparatus is nothing more than theater played out by shady actors. The leading character Obama, a cast of congress while directors, writers and stage builders work in the lime light. It’s all a show, not unlike Thom Hartman show, Alex Jones show and a goggle of other “shows”.

    Of course 0 does as he pleases. When was the last time anyone here has believed they actually live in a free country???

    My hope for true freedom is rotting in the back of the fridge and about ready for the landfill. None of us will change a thing due too we can’t agree on a show of force in numbers.

    Your children will be pushing up daises and the “blood line” will still be ruling. All the while the writers will still be screaming this is not right.

    The extremely distressing part is we keep paying them taxes to consider us as slaves.

  20. mallardhen says:

    See Ted Cruz just opted to run for pres. is he a good guy or a bad guy???

    • cranerigger says:

      mallardhen. I think he’s a good guy. He was elected as a Senator from Texas. That state seems to have been making better decisions than the rest of us during recent decades. His speeches seem to reflect a strong adherence to constitutional values and has healthy ideas for reducing the size & scope of the Federal Government. He has endured the wrath of his own party while trying to rein-in out of control Federal spending. He looks mighty good to me with the exception that he is a Lawyer.

    • Mountain Trekker says:

      Mallardhen, It’s a toss up between Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Sad to say but the Republican Party Machine and the media, will do all it can to destroy both of them. Trekker Out. Freemen Own Guns, Slaves Don’t!

      • Pissed Off Granny says:

        Mallard Hen:

        See my post in the last subject about the Cruz family being just more Washington elite insiders.

        If you do not care that Cruz said his wife had been at the “pinnacle” (and she has) then by all means support just another “made up conservative”.

        You see, the “pinnacle” Cruz ‘kinda’ skipped over with his wife is that she works for Goldman Sachs Banksters in Houston. Worked high in administration in the Bush white house and worst of all (or best whichever you choose) she was a Council on Foreign Relations member. You don’t get much higher on the “pinnacle” with TPTB than a CFR member.

        Now that is not the press trying to destroy their credibility, that is truth that the American public has a right to know.

        The “press” of Glen Beck should be ashamed of himself. He has to know exactly who/what these people really are.

      • TPSnodgrass says:

        I like BOTH Cruz and Paul, a LOT. Think they would make an excellent team to help the Republic recover from this abomination at present. However, the GOP will come after both of them with guns ablazin’….so be it. Let the festivities commence.

        • Archivist says:

          Cruz’s wife went to Harvard and works for Goldman-Sachs.

          Here is Heidi Cruz’s Linked In profile so everyone can see her connections.

          ht tps://

          She’s not currently in the CFR, but I think she used to be.

          Everybody needs to read her profile carefully and decide if they want the likes of her in the White House. I think she might be meddling in our affairs even worse than the current meddler.

      • Richard Head says:

    While Obama is a problem, he is no different now than when he was while getting elected. The real problem is the corrupt trash that are the so called leadership of the Republican party. They have the power to stop Obama,s unlawful acts, but they choose not to.
    Try finding out how much stock Boehner has that is tied to obamacare and is making him a bundle. The only answer I can see is a new party in time for 2016, cause I’m sure not voting for either of the two we are saddled with now.

    • john w. says:

      Since Obama admitted on 22 separate occasions that he did not have the power to grant amnesty when he did grant it the reply should have been to tell him how he planned to pay for it since it was an illegal act. As for a third party by 2016 I want some of whatever it is you are smoking. Too much power and money is at stake here for any real change to ever happen. The three year stock market run was to keep the wealthy and powerful quiet.

  25. swinging richard says:

    Our elected officials are supposed to represent the will of the people. Clearly this is not the case in this example.

  26. slingshot says:

    Give this some thought.

    We have watched the riots across this nation and found that, although those who protest for a good cause non violently, there are fractions within the group that prefer chaos.

    If and when Patriots take to the streets and we fine ourselves with malcontents within our ranks, who indiscriminately inflict unnecessary harm and destruction. We must thin them ourselves from our ranks. Otherwise we are no better than those we criticized now.

    It’s not that I hate Obama so much, it’s just the thought that here is a nobody, who has done nothing except read from a teleprompter, lied about his birth certificate, lied about his schooling/college,never held a real job or run a company, and perverted the whole meaning of meritocracy through exploitation of a political affirmitive action handed over to him by an emasculated middle working class, has been elected to the position of president after making in your face promises of openness, not ruling by decree but rather through congress, criticizing as a “lack of leadership” for previous administrations running up debt like drunken sailors.

    Never have I seen such “a f-you America” attitude by an elected official.

  33. “By hook or by crook”
    “For the record, ruling by whatever means necessary means being a dictator. Pure and simple”

    Exactly. We have a dictator. As George Carlin once said:

    “The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. YOU DON’T. You have no choice. You have OWNERS. They OWN YOU”–GC

    • Horse'sass says:

      That rant by George Carlin “the Club” was one for the ages. Not just a stand up comedian. No sir. He was an orator!

      Interesting how we only listen to comedians to give us the straight shot. This is like what happened in the Middle Ages where only the Court Jester was allowed to speak the truth to the King because after all, he was the Fool.

      A recommended look on You Tube.
      and others

      Also not far behind is South Park’s “And it’s gone” episode.

      Sadly, this phrase may not apply to just what the banking industry does with your money, but what the politicians and elites will do with your livelyhood and freedom.

  34. For the record, ruling by whatever means necessary means being a dictator, IS A FLAT OUT LIE…

    It means that you are attempting to perform the Duties and Responsibilities that you took an Oath to perform when the REPUBLICAN IDIOTS who took the same OATH OF OFFICE refuse to perform their Duties and Responsibilities.

    For the past 100 years we have seen the total failure of the REPUBLICAN PARTY and proof that the REPUBLICANS are totally incapable of running the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

    REPUBLICANS HAVE NO IDEA OF HOW TO OPERATE AN ECONOMY. Their AUSTERITY Policies have given us Two Depressions and 18 Recessions.

    The failure of REPUBLICANS to understand FOREIGN AFFAIRS have started more wars and conflicts than all Political parties combined.

    The Policies Created, Written, Approved and Implemented to Establish Torture as a Military and Governmental Policy has created more Enemies and Terrorists than any other act carried out by the U. S. A.

    The GREED and CORRUPTION of the REPUBLICANS, TEA-PARTY and CONSERVATIVES in the U. S. CONGRESS has CREATED an environment in which 98% of the Citizens are in Opposition to the remaining 2% of the RICH and POWERFUL that every REPUBLICAN in the U. S> Congress serves blindly.
