Let's face facts. President Nutcase thinks he has the moral authority, the executive power, the popular opinion, the media help, and the military backup to make a coup.
Using the springboard of that Chinese chestnut "opportunity in chaos," Obama has intentionally created a government partial slowdown (not "shutdown") to create a government meltdown. By permitting the CR to go unsigned, Obama believes he has sealed forever the necessity to have a budget. Unfortunately for him, the budget is a function of law, not desire, just like adultery is a sin, not a behavioral choice. It's mandatory.
Having usurped the budget process through various means, including offering his own budget voted down unanimously, Obama has transformed the way we look at capital expenditures, as if they are at the whim of any particular chaos or need, whether real or manufactured. Case in point: the sequester. The media relayed the false message that the United States would suffer under a sequester. The fear factor did not work, the sequester was signed by Mr. Nutcase, and thereupon no pain no strictly linked to it, making his threat invalid.
Following, the failure to pass a CR (cheers!) elicited more threats of a dire nature, implemented manually through orders to inflict as much pain as possible. National parks and monuments close, even private businesses are shuttered, and today a jogger is fined for running. The message from the government is, "Screw you!" As Gerald Ford put it, "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have." And so our fearless leader has given the American people the finger publicly, signaling the end of secrecy.
The meaning? We face in the next week or two the possibility of a power grab of unimaginable proportions. Having already communicated in speeches and by proxies that HE will not permit the economic security of the nation, nay, the world to be threatened by Tea Party types (interesting characterization of how much power the Tea Party now has), there is every reason to fear a unilateral takeover of the debt process, the Nutcase himself ordering new debt. This would be TREASON.
Not that Obama's Attorney General is not already in contempt of Congress over Fast and Furious and the Gulf oil decisions. Not that Obama is not already a traitor for funding Al-Qaeda through Syria, Egypt, and Libya. Not that Obama is not already a murderer for Benghazi, the Mexican border, and even Miriam Carey (the dental hygienist executed in broad daylight in DC). Ugh! Are we REALLY this far down the road to serfdom, this far pushed by the Overton Window, that he is not ALREADY impeached, if not in jail?
The bikers decided to protest the "Million" Muslim March, but were denied a permit. They came anyway. The veterans were told the monuments were closed. They came anyway. The truckers will probably be told on October 11 that I-495 is closed. But they will come anyway, and I hope they smash down barriers, arrest Pelosi and Feinstein (to start), and help us restore our Constitution. Our might is in numbers.
One faction which could help immensely would be a "Million Mothers March" on DC to protest Obamacare, the Department of Education, the disintegration of morals, and (why not?) the killing of Miriam Carey with her baby still in the car. What will they do with all these woman, start a "war"? What will they do if these women march on Washington and stay many days? With President Nutcase, who can say?
But time is running short. With each move, Obama pushes us further into accepting tyranny, until one day he eases off the pedal and we breathe a sigh of relief, only to find out that we are ten miles down the road from actual liberty, and the enormous government built around us (NSA, IRS, EPA, and so forth) rules every aspect of our lives, not only with irritations but with actual slavery.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
