As much as I hate to say it because it puts me in Alex Jones/Prison Planet territory, it really does look like Obama is trying to provoke some sort of reaction in order that he may direct law enforcement/the military to crack down. He really wants a “Little Rock/Ole Miss” moment that would allow him to use force to crack down on the Tea Party. If he can cow the public with such an action, he will be free to do whatever he pleases. Remember that he is a community organizer at heart and they don’t lead, they provoke.
Yeah, Obama is a typical lib/proto-communist. What is irrational is the left (or anyone for that matter) to expect a man to be a leader who has never exhibited leadership in his entire life – all of who he is has been built around radicalization, activism and agitation – that’s what a “community organizer” (the modern appellation for a local communist party boss) does. He doesn’t know how to lead, only how to provoke. He doesn’t know how to negotiate, only how to demand and threaten. Really, given his upbringing at the feet of Frank Marshall Davis and then suckling at the teat of the likes of Ayers and Dohrn, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise. He’s a black hippy commune leader who rode a cult of personality to the highest office in the land – one that he is totally lacking in skills to effectively prosecute.
Obama is the contemporary incarnation of Hemingway’s Jay Gatsby, a man with a past fabricated from whole cloth. I once wrote about him that:
The fellow travelers in government and useful idiots in media won’t let him fail – they went “all in” on what they thought was a “bulletproof” candidate – one with no publicly discernible history that could cause him difficulty, a bi-racial man raised in a multi-racial international community, tutored in an affirmative action/progressive/elite educational atmosphere, a Harvard educated lawyer who eschewed corporate America to integrate into the American black community that he never was part of until it became a political prerogative, a selfless, caring “community organizer” of ambiguous religious heritage and beliefs who turned into a selfish and ruthless politician, a half-white black man married to a black professional woman with two black children. He was an apologist for the strong America that the Left is embarrassed by. To the delight of the left leaning media he had a compelling backstory that evolved into a cult following based on white guilt, a cult following that produced messianic imagery from its members. A candidate, that no matter what he did, had the advantage of playing race as a trump card as many times as he needed to avoid criticism…
The left has created for themselves a modern version of Frankenstein’s monster, cobbled together from the many policy disagreements, they have fashioned the living dead that is fueled by one singular notion – that opposition to him consists of nothing but pure personal hate and racism. I think that even he believes that and that is what drives him to refuse any alternatives to any of his “plans”.
This is a very dangerous time and Obama is a very dangerous man.
We must oppose in any way we can. There are few remaining opportunities for individual direct action as the government has been successful in criminalizing most avenues for direct interdiction in support of dissent. That is why I still think one of the best ways to start to gain control is to repeal the Current Tax Payment Act of 1943 – the act that mandates automatic withholding of taxes. Leviathan only modifies its behavior when it is starved. Tax money is both its food and its blood and we get its excrement dumped on us every day. The only way to get at it is through its food. That is why the debt ceiling terrifies it. If you don’t think repealing this act is powerful, look at what happens to unions when mandatory dues are eliminated and the members can vote with their purse.
Shutmageddon, the Democrats and especially Obama and his minions are heirs to Thomas Hobbes. Read what follows from Chapter 12 of Hobbes’ “Leviathan” and see if you see the similarities:
During the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that conditions called war; and such a war, as if of every man, against every man.
To this war of every man against every man, this also in consequent; that nothing can be unjust. The notions of right and wrong, justice and injustice have there no place. Where there is no common power, there is no law, where no law, no injustice. Force, and fraud, are in war the cardinal virtues.
No arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death: and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.
Folks, everything that is old is new again. We are fighting the same battles as we were in the days of Plato and Socrates, Locke and Hobbes, Jefferson and Marshall.
Look to history, it predicts where we will end this battle if we do not win.
We are staring true tyranny straight in the face. Many will not recognize it until it is too late to do anything about it. In the words of John Adams:
But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
I would argue that it is not lost forever but there is a terrible and significant price that must be paid in blood to restore it.
