Our Republic is suffering a slow death at the hands of statists of the left, but also the moderate Republicans. We have a fiscal situation that most would label a crisis by any definition, in which the Federal government expends money fifty percent faster than it collects it, and it collects plenty. Three years of Barack Obama’s reckless spending, and the willingness of Republican leadership to make deals has left us in a situation in which we are accruing debt faster than at any time in history. Even if Barack Obama is defeated and sent packing in 2012, as he surely should be, we may not make it that far before the consequences explode in our faces. The House of Representatives should not pass another bill that appropriates one dollar. Yes, we need a government shutdown, but Barack Obama has other plans. He intends to take over, and to ignore the Congress, and he intends to do so well in advance of the elections. Obama is a man who has planned all his life for overthrowing the United States Constitution, and now, armed with the power of the executive branch, and with a supporting Senate, he is likely to make his play now while he still can.
Barack Obama isn’t a garden variety socialist. He’s steeped in the tactics of Saul Alinsky, but more, he has an abiding desire to see the United States become a slave state. People have wondered why he’s doing the things he is, but for many, the answer is clear: We may be on the verge of a second bloody revolution, and the proponents of this one are already in charge, and already using the levers of power to make ready for their moment. I know this sounds so thoroughly outlandish to some people, that it’s difficult to say it seriously, except for the fact that it’s happening.
Consider Occupy Wall Street. Here is an organization that exists to create unrest and violence in the streets, and in typical leftist fashion, it will be used to give government and excuse to step in. Of course, it’s being directed by Obama friends and co-conspirators, including a healthy dose of funding from George Soros and his various affiliate pass-through organizations, but what make it more stunning than this is that Obama is putting in place the foundations for declaring vast new emergencies and taking on new Federal powers under the aegis of just such an emergency. On Thursday, he signed a new executive order, that while updating older statutes, effectively gives the government the power to seize whatever it wants under whatever conditions it wants in response to a vague national emergency. The Executive Order, titled: NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS, provides for adjustments to procedures to be carried out under 50 USC.
This order provides for the organization of the executive branch under such an emergency, and likewise provides directions on what may be delegated, to whom, and for what purposes. It references a number of other executives orders, along with various sections of 50 USC. The Obama administration will claim it is merely updating policies, but this is a bit more than that. We mustn’t be fooled into thinking this is all business-as-usual. Nothing about the Obama administration is business-as-usual except for the outward appearance they wish to project.
Consider the implications of a President being tied to a civil unrest movement the likes of OWS, and then also setting up the legal basis for a government response to the sort of crisis OWS could be expected to generate, particularly if there is substantial financial difficulty arising out of the reckless policies of this administration. On the one hand, he has OWS to terrorize you, and on the other, he is preparing to deal with them in response to your demands. The truly stunning part is that the Occupiers don’t quite seem to grasp the danger, or that they’re being set up to take a mighty fall.
Now comes news that Obama has been groomed for this role for a long time, perhaps as far back as the mid-1980s, when it seems that Bill Ayers’ parents may have sponsored Obama or otherwise helped him through school, as WND reports. A former mail carrier explained his contacts with the Ayers family and young black man he met who he now believes was Barack Obama. WND interviewed him, and here is that video:
I bring this to your attention because it’s an interesting aside to the general conversation about who Barack Obama really is, and what his intentions for this country really are. I don’t believe he’s anything but a radical leftist, and as many now contend, he is not undertaking these policies lightly. As Mark Levin mentioned on Monday evening, the Executive Order issued by Obama last week is bad in any president’s hands, but in the hands of this President particularly, that offers a potential prescription for the end of America as we have known it.
It reminds me of a famous piece of literature, Atlas Shrugged, wherein Ayn Rand constructs the devolution of the United States, and one of the instruments the statists use is an analog to this latest executive order, called “Directive 10-289.” It basically offered a takeover under the guise of an emergency in much the same form as this latest executive order would do: Take over the means of production,distribution, transportation, and any and every other critical part of the American economy. The longer the Obama administration goes on, the more I get the impression that we are living out the last chapters of Atlas Shrugged.
I think Obama is a good deal more malevolent than the shrinking coward who was the head of the country in that book. I don’t believe any of this is or can be accidental. He’s clearly intent upon changing America to his vision, whether or not Americans consent. Any president who can so easily disregard the opinion of more than sixty percent of Americans in enacting a health-care reform bill isn’t acting in the best interests of the country. Slowly but surely, he’s picking our constitution apart, and if he gets his way, it will be altogether meaningless as a restraint upon government. 2012 may be our last chance to stop the overthrow of our Republic by peaceful means. The fox is in the hen-house, and establishment Republicans still look at him expectantly, as though he ought to lay an egg. If we do oust him, our next job will be to clean out that sorry gaggle of spur-less roosters who have been so ineffective at keeping the fox in check, in part because they golf with him and see him as one of their own. He’s not, and the sooner our Republican leadership learns that, the sooner we can take back this country.
