The Petulant Imperial Man-Child of a president threatens Social Security Checks for Seniors and warns Wall Street of economic tumult if his agenda is not funded and the debt ceiling raised.
Imagine what His Heinous will do when he has ObamaCare to use as a sword of Damocles over our heads?
Fast-forward to 2016: the government is bankrupt and the dollar is collapsing and approaching worthlessness. Congress is working on cutting ridiculous entitlements to keep the ship of state afloat, and Obama announces that he will shut down everyone’s Healthcare insurance if they do not capitulate to his demands for more spending. Thereupon his storm trooping media sycophants will screech that Obama’s opponents will be KILLING innocent Americans who will not be able to get healthcare.
So Obama is moving from the government shutdown to threatening the rest of America with economic shutdown if Congress does not raise the debt limit.
Speaking of which, if you are maxed-out on your credit cards, which of you can threaten and demand your banks and stores raise your credit limit so you can keep charging on your card????
Apparently Obama and the federal government think they can so that with our 100-trillion dollar debt, larger than all the wealth on the planet combined.
So to extort his way, Obama yesterday attempted to freak out Senior citizens by indicating their checks will not go out if “Republicans refuse to raise the debt limit” and then attempted to freak out Wall Street by warning of the dangers of a failure to raise the credit limit for more federal spending.
I think this is all theater so that when Obama raises the debt limit by his own royal Decree – he thinks Americans will applaud another Imperial Dictate so as to thwart the consequences he threatened us with yesterday.
If he can’t get what he wants, he is going to circumvent the United States Constitution, and he will be applauded for it, because he will have, “saved the economy”, “saved Social Security”, “saved the world’s financial system” because we have to pay our bills, you see?
And I smell this a mile away.
And he’s being encouraged repeatedly by pseudo-intellectuals, by Marxists dressed up as Constitutionalists, by people in his own party, he’s being encouraged to conduct himself as a dictator, and to bypass Congress and to bypass the Constitution, why work with him?
So he’s greased the skids for what he intends to do by threatening Seniors and those receiving Social Security:
Seniors who rely on their Social Security checks might want to start pinching their pennies.
President Barack Obama warned Thursday that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress doesn’t raise the debt limit soon — one consequence of what he warned would be an “economic shutdown.”
If the debt limit isn’t raised, Social Security checks “don’t go out on time,” the president said at an event in Rockville, Md.
Obama’s warning about Social Security checks came on the heels of a Treasury Department report, released Thursday morning, warning of the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression if Congress fails to act.
Then he threatened Wall Street with tumult:
An ‘exasperated’ Barack Obama offered no guarantees the U.S. would avoid an unprecedented default during a crisis meeting with Wall Street bankers yesterday.
The President said it could not be taken for granted that the political infighting over the federal shutdown would ease in time to raise the legal debt limit before the October 17 deadline.
During an interview with CNBC, President Barack Obama told NBC News reporter John Harwoodthat financial markets “should be concerned.” Asked about the apparent lack of concern over the government shutdown displayed in the stock market, Obama said that he spoke with individuals in the financial industry and warned them of the grave consequences of default if the debt ceiling is not raised.
Obama is going to set the fire, watch it burn and fiddle around and then come in as the savior by issuing an Imperial Decree, circumventing Congress and declaring his actions necessary.
