President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog).

Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats.

The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White House.

Mr. Podesta will help Mr. McDonough on matters related to the health care law, administration organization and executive actions, said a person familiar with the plans, and will focus in particular on climate change issues, a personal priority of Mr. Podesta’s.

“Climate change” suggests that Obama intends to ramp up his war on coal in the remaining years of his presidency, via the EPA and perhaps executive actions similar to those he has used with regard to Obamacare and immigration. Obama came into office threatening to bankrupt the coal industry, wanting to impose a cap and trade regime, but could not get one passed by Congress even when Democrats controlled both houses. Obama is aware that his actions will force energy prices skyward. His actions come at a time when evidence for global warming has disappeared. That has not changed his intention to impose cap and trade.

They play to win. And they play for keeps.

Would that we had people who would do the same.

What price treason? We refuse to call this what it is.

By any means necessary...our timid, limp, tepid responses don't even test the boundaries of that attitude.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: WHERE is the Constitutional authority for Executive Orders of this magnitude? We're talking about re-writing the laws of the land without so much as a "by your leave". This must NOT stand.

I still remember the secret meeting Podesta had w/ George Soros, Peter Lewis, and other billionaire Dem donors before Bush's 2nd term, after that is when he started Center for American Progress. Alot of what is happening was put in place then.
Another thing is he probably will start laying the ground work for Hillary, he is on old Clinton thug.

At least Obama is busy governing the country. Republicans are busy twiddling their thumbs.

And by "governing the country" you clearly mean "becoming a dictator."

I have already written to my Republican Senator demanding that Obama be impeached. Nothing yet because the Senate is ruled by Democrats. More of us need to write and call our members of Congress and demand that he be impeached. With enough voices we will be heard. Undoubtedly, Obama supporters will call us racist but we need to stand firm against his abuse of power.
