Earlier this month, Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y. introduced H. J. Res. 15, a bill that would repeal the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office, thus potentially paving the way to make Barack Obama president for life. Not surprisingly, the main-stream liberal media — still apparantly kissing Obama’s ass — has not covered this story. The Bill reads as follows:
Introduced in the House of Representatives on 01/04/2013.

About Constitutional Authority Statements: On January 5, 2011, the House of Representatives adopted an amendment to House Rule XII. Rule XII, clause 7(c) requires that, to be accepted for introduction by the House Clerk, all bills (H.R.) and joint resolutions (H.J.Res.) must provide a document stating “as specifically as practicable the power or powers granted to Congress in the Constitution to enact the bill or joint resolution.”
The United States is no longer the country it once was. Prior to Franklin Roosevelt, presidents honored the precedent established by George Washington, who – though widely popular – refused to run for a third term of office. Thomas Jefferson followed Washington’s example and foresaw the eventual passage of the 22nd Amendment. “General Washington set the example of voluntary retirement after eight years,” Jefferson wrote in an 1805 letter to John Taylor. “I shall follow it, and a few more precedents will oppose the obstacle of habit to anyone after a while who shall endeavor to extend his term. Perhaps it may beget a disposition to establish it by an amendment of the Constitution.”
Jefferson’s immediate successors, James Madison and James Monroe, also adhered to the two-term principle. This gentlemanly trend continued through Franklin D. Roosevelt’s second term, where; his supporters cited the bankster engineered war in Europe as a reason for breaking with precedent. In the 1944 election, during World War II, Roosevelt won a fourth term, but died in office the following year. The 22nd Amendment was ratified by the requisite number of states on February 26, 1951.
Following the potential repeal of the 22nd Amendment, I predict that Obama’s handlers will exploit the “bankster engineered” economic crisis to push for a third term. In order to achieve repeal of the 22nd Amendment, Serrano’s proposal must be approved by a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress and ratified by three-quarters of the states’ legislatures. With a record of over $16 Trillion dollar debt, high unemployment, food prices and government programs (unemployment benefits, Social Security, disability insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, veterans’ benefits, education assistance and other cash transfers of government funds to individuals). Henry Kissinger noted once that, “under such conditions the American people will beg for a dictator to lead them out of the wilderness.).
Of course, King Obama will not lead the American people out of the wilderness. He will usher us into a New World Order with its high-tech control grid and a horrific race to the bottom. Welcome to the Socialist States of America! dfh
