Podesta recommends bypassing and ignoring Congress and the American people completely. He suggests that Obama enact a far-left agenda through executive action via executive orders; rulemaking through executive branch administrative agencies; agency management; convening and creating public-private partnerships; commanding the armed forces; and diplomacy
"The ability of President Obama to accomplish important change through these powers should not be underestimated," Podesta stressed. "Congressional deadlock does not mean the federal government stands still."

Advises Rule by Presidential-Edict as
Clinton Staff-Chief Podesta Eggs Obama On
Don’t be surprised if Barack Obama and his 40+ “czars” begin operating more like they ruled an American dictatorship than a republic, because that’s precisely the advice President Obama has received from numerous “prestigious” leftwing groups online and elsewhere. Perhaps the most well-known of these leftwing “brain”-trusts (most of them funded by “Spooky-Dude” George Soros), the Center for American Progress (CAP) tops the list for most prestigious among left-wingers across the globe as well as within our own borders. Based in Washington, D.C., CAP is led by Bill Clinton’s former Marxist Chief of Staff John Podesta. Predictably, Podesta has on three recent occasions called upon Obama to totally circumvent Congress once the Republican Party takes control the House of Representatives beginning January, 2011.
The Obama administration (which has already made a policy of ignoring the vast majority of the American people regarding a) Obamacare b) the Near-ground-zero mosque c) border control d) cap and trade e) auto bailouts f) bank bailouts g)Wall Street bailouts g) the Obama stimulus package h) treatment of Israel i) bi-partisanship j) openness and accountability of the administration’s dealings and k) response to the Arizona Law dealing with Illegal aliens) now appears ready to talk bi-partisanship and a move toward the center out of one side of its mouth while ratcheting up the double-dealing on the other side. Complete disregard of Congress is nothing new for the administration either. When it became apparent last year that the votes to pass cap and trade legislation were nowhere to be found in the senate (which the Democrats controlled at that time 60-40); Obama ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to force Cap and trade upon the nation by regulatory process. The EPA came out within weeks with an announcement that carbon dioxide was a toxic emission which henceforth they would start regulating.
In that instance, the EPA was met immediately with lawsuits pointing out that the agency was operating in opposition to its own charter. EPA regulations require that such “findings” must be based upon legitimately conducted studies by the EPA itself and could NOT reference other studies such as the bogus “global warming” studies conducted by the infamous Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in England which have been totally discredited by the “Climate Gate” e-mail leaks and by other scandalous revelations.
The ultra-left Mr. Podesta openly suggested President Obama ignore Congress and the American people altogether by using executive action to enact an agenda even more leftist than what Pelosi and Reid passed for him in 2009 and 2010. Among Podesta’s recommendations of important accomplishments to achieve by sidestepping the Republican-controlled house in 2011 in the monthly report created by Podesta and his senior staff at CAP entitled “The Power of the President: Recommendations to Advance Progressive Change” are:
Bypassing and ignoring Congress and the American people completely. He suggests that Obama enact a far-left agenda through executive action via executive orders; rulemaking through executive branch administrative agencies; agency management; convening and creating public-private partnerships; commanding the armed forces; and diplomacy. "The ability of President Obama to accomplish important change through these powers should not be underestimated," Podesta stressed. "Congressional deadlock does not mean the federal government stands still."
The astute reader has already picked up on several key words and phrases, no doubt?
#1 Podesta talked straightforwardly about “recommendations to advance PROGRESSIVE change.” Progressives (neo-Marxists like Podesta who talk openly about “progressing” beyond the outdated and ill-conceived U.S. Constitution and the necessity to “progress” toward their concept of an earthly Utopia) have been greatly emboldened since the election of Barack Obama are more open about their agenda than at any time in U.S. history. At the October 28 Colbert-Stewart gathering on the mall in Washington, D.C., for example, Communist Party members brazenly carried signs and bragged about themselves as “proud communists” something utterly unprecedented in Rajjpuut’s experience of American politics.
#2 Podesta talks about using the Armed Forces . . . nothing more dictatorial could be suggested especially since Mr. Obama has been training an “elite” group of soldiers to operate at his discretion “in riot-control and instances of civil unrest.”
#3 Podesta hints at the power of government to create leftist change enhanced after “convening and creating public-private partnerships.” That is Unions and the Communist Party and student-radicals taking to the streets. At the very least it would give Obama a reason to institute martial law and mobilize his special Obama-troops (see #2 above).
#4 Clearly Podesta is suggesting violating the Constitutionally- ordained system of checks and balances and elevating himself above the law created by our Founding Fathers . . . making himself more an emperor than a president controlling the executive branch in a triad of balanced power. The Imperial Obama White House will soon be upon us . . . .
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
