Music star Ray Stevens, whose “The Streak” decades ago set a standard for enlightening music fans about political and social trends in America, has launched a new video skewering Barack Obama’s executive orders.
He “doesn’t seem to care about the Constitution; that’s passé. He’s got a new solution,” Stevens sings on his “Obama Nation” video.”
He’s joined by Billy Dean and Larry Gatlin in the performance, which includes quotes from longtime Obama friend and former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers (“We are communist, women and men, underground in the United States”) and George Soros (“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States”).
He also explains that Obama really doesn’t need to bother Congress, as “They’d just get in his way.”
The concept of an imperial presidency also is addressed in the new hot-selling “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” which says Americans will be surprised at what Barack Obama plans for Congress if he is elected to a second term.
He said the blueprints for the second term include a lot of “executive orders” and “interagency directives” and all of those bypass Congress.
What will the orders be about? Amnesty for illegals, economic issues and possibly even your paycheck, Klein tells Huckabee.
The book covers jobs, wages, health care, immigration “overhaul,” electoral “reform,” national energy policy, Pentagon plans and more.
Stevens previously has lobbed comedy at Obama, with a Mr. President video about Obama taking golf outings while the “Red Chinese” buy America’s soul, a budget video where he talks about doing a budget Obama’s way, where he’s now “printing money in the basement as fast as he can,” and another where he explains if 10 percent is good enough for Jesus, the same ought to be good enough for Uncle Sam.
Some listeners wrote on the YouTube web page that Stevens has a “great song and so true,” but critics attacked the singer, with “This is how desperate a once good singer gets trying to stay relevant…”
Stevens has won several Grammys in his long career, including one for “Everything is Beautiful,” and has worked with of Nashville’s legends, including Elvis Presley.
Stevens, 73, has had projects from gospel to comedy and had titles including “Gitarzan,” “Along Came Jones” and “Misty.”
For several years he performed at his own show in Branson, Mo.
His “We The People,” a CD/DVD package, came in 2010 and was featured twice on “The O’Reilly Factor.”
