Applying ALL Power Deemed Necessary to Fulfill God’s Prophecy…

Chapter: The Executive Power of the President of the United States

(Unedited Manuscript)

The President of the United States has numerous powers, including those explicitly granted by Article II of the United States Constitution.

The Constitution explicitly assigned the president the power to sign or veto legislation, command the armed forces, ask for the written opinion of their Cabinet, convene or adjourn Congress, grant reprieves and pardons, and receive ambassadors. The president may make treaties which need to be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate. The president may also appoint Article III judgesand some officers with the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. In the condition of a Senate recess, the president may make a temporary appointment.

Within the executive branch itself, the president has broad powers to manage national affairs and the priorities of the government. The president can issue rules, regulations, and instructions called executive orders, which have the binding force of law upon federal agencies but do not require approval of the United States Congress. Executive orders are subject to judicial review and interpretation.

The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 put additional responsibilities on the presidency for the preparation of the United States federal budget, although Congress was required to approve it.[1] The act required the Office of Management and Budget to assist the president with the preparation of the budget. Previous presidents had the privilege of the impound funds as they saw fit, however the United States Supreme Court revoked the privilege in 1998 as a violation of the Presentment Clause. The power was available to all presidents and was regarded as a power inherent to the office. The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 was passed in response to large-scale power exercises by President Nixon. The act also created the Congressional Budget Office as a legislative counterpoint to the Office of Management and Budget.

The president, as the Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces, may also call into federal service individual state units of the National Guard. In times of war or national emergency, the Congress may grant the president broader powers to manage the national economy and protect the security of the United States, but these powers were not expressly granted by the United States Constitution.[2] During the Vietnam War, in 1973, Congress expeditiously passed the War Powers Act and severely limited the ability of the President to conduct warfare without Congressional approval. Congress was constitutionally provided the power to declare the war,[3] but if the president needed to send the troops to other countries for emergency reasons, approved statutes required the notification of Congress within forty-eight hours. For any time beyond sixty days, further congressional approval was required.

Emergency POWERS

The Constitution does not expressly grant the president additional powers in times of national emergency. However, many scholars think that the Framers implied these powers because the structural design of the Executive Branch enables it to act faster than the Legislative Branch. Because the Constitution remains silent on the issue, the courts cannot grant the Executive Branch these powers when it tries to wield them. The courts will only recognize a right of the Executive Branch to use emergency powers if Congress has granted such powers to the president.[19]

A claim of emergency powers was at the center of President Abraham Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus without Congressional approval in 1861. Lincoln claimed that the rebellion created an emergency that permitted him the extraordinary power of unilaterally suspending the writ. With Chief Justice Roger Taney sitting as judge, the Federal District Court of Maryland struck down the suspension in Ex Parte Merryman, although Lincoln ignored the order. [20]

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt similarly invoked emergency powers when he issued an order directing that all Japanese Americans residing on the West Coast be placed into internment camps during World War II. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld this order in Korematsu v. United States[21]

Harry Truman declared the use of emergency powers when he nationalized private steel mills that failed to produce steel because of a labor strike in 1952.[22] With the Korean War ongoing, Truman asserted that he could not wage war successfully if the economy failed to provide him with the material resources necessary to keep the troops well-equipped.[23] The U.S. Supreme Court, however, refused to accept that argument in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, voting 6-3 that neither Commander-in-Chief powers nor any claimed emergency powers gave the president the authority to unilaterally seize private property without Congressional legislation. [24]

Very soon, we will see whether or not the President has all of the power that the Senate deems him to possess…You see, the problem is that even though the President knows what to do and how to get it done, this demands approval and a majority vote. This should give the people of this country a good idea as to who in most cases is made out to be the bad guy. Understand that direct projection onto the President is what the majority of the Senate chooses to do. If the President were given ABSOLUTE POWER then we would have already seen many changes in the direction that is worthy to be called Godly.

The problem is not the President. The problem is the system and amount of power deemed appropriate to the Senate.
The separation of powers is a majority of the problem. Monarchy would be an interesting comparison to make in regards to a change of path for this country, and possibly the only true hope for this country at this stage in the game…as long as the correct individual is put into power…A man of God...Bearing the Power that supersedes all, which is granted by the Holy Spirit…True hope and change would be demonstrated by all supreme authority given to the President, having been called and chosen as a Godly and upright individual. If you want to see actions reversed and God painted into the picture, as the Cornerstone of society, then we need to begin to see progress in applying monarchial power (Revelation 17:14) Otherwise, this country will not see the change that we need to set new standards and commandments by which to live and to do away with all of the possibility for evil to get in the way…For this could be the “grand finale”, and the Final Judgment…the scales of God in His hand…

If it is God’s will (Prophecy), then we will soon see a catastrophic ending to what has been taking place…By carefully paying attention, this country and the entire world will soon know the  power that the the army of God possesses. Let us not think small minded but let us think about the difficult scenario of separation of power. This is the root of the problem.
The people arguing and refusing to change (against the Commandments of God) with encouragement to uphold the way that things have always been are the problem. The change that must be implemented is that of reinforcing the importance of belief in the dynamics of all that we do as a nation. Our dynamics are to be focused around the Nucleus of Society, which is the Lamb of God…and no other god…

Ecclesiastes 1:4-11

“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also riseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whilreth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after…”

Revelation 21:4-5

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful…”
