This Is What Happens After A Republic Has Been Overthrown From Within Via A Velvet Coup

O'DuceObama

The Republican-Surrender to fully fund Obama’s total fundamental Transformation is all the proof we need to know that the Constitution has been completely overthrown.

Is America a Representative Republic?

Not any more.

A Democracy?

No.

Democratic Socialism?

No.

Fascist Oligarchy?

Closer.

Marxist Dictatorship?

Yes, but more complex.

Think of it as a Leftist Caliphate.  A radical Marxist/Communist/Secular Humanist Police State with a defacto dictator with a god-complex.  It is also an ideological State Religion that seeks to force everyone’s conversion to their faith after they bankrupt the masses while enriching themselves and their Chamber of Big Fascism Comrades with your money and consigning your posterity to a horrifying future where all religion, speech and rights are eradicated, regulated, licensed and only allowed by the grant of government according to what they deem fits the new morality.

 

For all the folks out there hanging their hats and all their hopes on the next presidential candidate they think will save us, I will say this once more: tyrants do not yield power to those they rob and rule.

You cannot stop tyranny via civil means

Paul Ryan Betrays America: $1.1 Trillion, 2,000-Plus Page Omnibus Bill Funds ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill.

Lord-King-Obama-Cropped

King Obama Wins Again

Before the English Civil War, British kings had a simple process for raising money for their various endeavors: they called a session of parliament and requested nationwide taxes and excise.

Parliament generally funded the kings, but if they refused, the king could dissolve the parliament. Eventually, that system ended after a series of mistakes by King Charles led to the rise of Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army.

President Obama faces no such obstacles.

Our elected King gets precisely what he wants from his compliant parliament. Elected Republicans refuse time and time again to use either of the constitutional powers delegated to them to stop an overreaching executive: impeachment or the power of the purse. Impeachment would likely fail simply due to lack of votes in the Senate. But refusal to pass conservative spending priorities out of fear that Obama will veto them and that the government will then “shut down” has paralyzed the Republican opposition to Obama.

So they just give Obama what he wants.

This has been true since conservatives returned Republicans to control of the House of Representatives in 2010. It’s been true even since Republicans gained control of the Senate in 2014. Obama’s string of victories has not reversed in any marked way.

America Off The Cliff – The Land Of Evil And Obamination

WashingtonBeast

America has been given over to an evil debased mind and culture.  Evil now rules us and the wickedness being sown will reap a whirlwind of horrifying judgment that will shock the nations.

The following two essays are sentiments I share wholeheartedly as the night falls upon what is left of the late great Republic that was once a shining city on a hill.  Sadly, we deserve what is coming by our individual and collective sins as a people who have abandoned God for self.

Devil Days in the USA

By GINA MILLER

There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed (Luke 8:17), and we are now seeing revealed the depths of barbarity and evil of the euphemistically named Planned Parenthood.  We’re also seeing the insane lengths to which Hell’s gatekeepers will go to defend the butchering and sale of tiny baby bodies.  This nation is going to pay dearly for this abomination.  While the rabid defenders of this dark evil ludicrously try to claim it’s done for “scientific research,” I assure you that God will never allow any lifesaving medical breakthroughs to be achieved from using little baby bodies as guinea pigs.  NEVER.  The only thing that will come from such abominable “scientific research” is destruction on the nation that allows it to happen.  We are being warned right now.  That’s why this is coming to light when it is, shortly after the highest court in our land has illegally imposed a grotesque distortion of the meaning of marriage on the United States, a distortion based on detestable sexual behavior that God calls an abomination to Him.

We are also watching our nation fall under the complete control of communist enemies who have taken over our federal government.  I don’t give a rip if anyone is unable or unwilling to see this (got that, you perversity-loving, Right Wing Watch nutters?).  It is the truth.  Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is an enemy of the United States.  His fellow-traveling crime syndicate of an administration is full of enemies of freedom and pushers of tyranny.  They are working to tear down the freedoms and foundation of this nation.  They are destroying our constitutional Republic.  They are giving aid and comfort to our enemies, who are clearly their friends.  This is treason.  Yet there is no opposition in Congress or the courts to anything these people do, no matter how illegal or outrageous.

Why is there no opposition?  There is no doubt in my mind that those who are in the supposed opposition party are scared to death to do the right thing.  Even if they are truly opposed to the Obama Crime Syndicate, they fear to cross it.  They are being credibly threatened, bribed or otherwise coerced into non-action, and I supposed there may be some who even agree with Obama’s communist program.  The result is that we now have a communist dictator ruling the United States of America.

This is the beginning of Devil Days in the U.S.A.  The darkest days are yet to come.  Pure tyranny and destruction are headed our way.  I’m sorry if you hate to read this.  Maybe you disagree.  Hide and watch, or better yet, watch and pray, as Jesus commands.  I know of no other way to call it than as I see it.  We are well beyond a political solution, because what ails this nation is the deep corruption of a terminally diseased soul.  For this, there is no superficial cure.

While the majority of Americans (still a majority, I’m certain) do not agree with the evil society being pushed on this nation, the fact is that those in positions of power do, and we will all sink with this reprobate ship.  This nation, collectively, embraces, celebrates and mandates the most degenerate sexual behavior known to man.  This nation is using the money of its people to fund unspeakably hellish obscenities being perpetrated on the bodies of little murdered human babies, thereby making all taxpayers culpable.  The spirit of antichrist, which infects our leaders, is running the show today.

None of this means we will stop speaking against what’s happening, although I admit I am a bit weary of staring into the abyss as I watch the leaders of our nation eagerly fling the U.S. down into it.  It gets tiring repeatedly shouting from the rooftops and preaching to the choir, while the “low-information” people around us aggressively wrap themselves in apathy and ignorance, many foolishly embracing their own destruction.  It’s hard to write when I know we’re powerless to stop the demonic monster machine that’s destroying our nation.  Don’t tell me we can elect a savior.  It ain’t happening.

Speaking of Savior, however, Jesus is the only thing that keeps us sane—those of us who belong to Him, that is.  The only source for hope in this desperately lost and dying world is God, through His Son Jesus, Who gave His precious, sinless life so that we hopeless sinners could have a way to eternal life, redeemed from eternal death.  The United States will fade and fall, and it remains to be seen if its fall will be swift and sudden or not, but what will stand forever is the Word of God.  If you have never done so, now is the time to look into the truth that is only found in the Bible.  Seek salvation through Jesus Christ today, and these Devil Days will be a quickly fleeting bump on the road to an eternity of joy and peace with the one true God Who loves us more than we can possibly imagine.

The Most Evil Government In American History

By Michael Snyder

America is not a great nation, and it hasn’t been for a very long time.  Any government that gives hundreds of millions of dollars each year to an organization that systematically murders babies, harvests their internal organs and ships them off to laboratories where they are used in experiments can hardly be called “great”.  Back in the 1980s, Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as “the evil empire”, but today it is the Russians that are calling us “evil” and “godless”.  And you know what?  When Vladimir Putin called us “godless” he was 100 percent correct.  Someday when history judges us, we will fully deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China and Hitler’s Germany.  Our consciences have been so seared that we have absolutely no sense of perspective anymore.  We get all bent out of shape over the killing of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe, but the trafficking of the body parts and internal organs of millions of our own babies hardly elicits any reaction at all.

Yes, the killing of that lion in Zimbabwe was a horrible crime, and I hope that dentist is held accountable for it.

But how can that possibly compare to the absolutely sickening crimes against humanity that are being committed by Planned Parenthood every single day?

The death of Cecil the Lion has provoked a huge reaction from the American people.  The following examples come from Townhall

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has called for the hunter involved, Dr. Walter Palmer, to be hanged. The puppy-killing, celebrity-studded, publicity-stunt-centered organization epitomizes the insanely hypocritical, progressive approach. The death threats through Yelp and Twitter are repugnant, but unsurprising given their disdain for human life.

Celebrities have tweeted their utter disgust for the wealthy dentist. Debra Messing (Will & Grace, Mysteries of Laura) says: “I want them to take his citizenship away.” Sharon Osbourne hopes that “#WalterPalmer loses his home, his practice & his money. He has already lost his soul…#WalterPalmer is Satan.” Piers Morgan, proving that being a news journalist was never his forte, tweets: “I’d love to go hunting for killer dentist Dr. Walter Palmer, so I can stuff and mount him for MY office wall.”

And there is nothing wrong with being upset about the death of Cecil the Lion.  It upset me as well.

But what about the Nazi-like atrocities that are being carried out day after day with the full endorsement of the Obama administration?

In case you have been living under a rock, you can read about all the grisly details right here and right here.

I don’t know how anyone can read those articles without being absolutely sickened and horrified.

So how is the White House responding to all of this?

The Obama administration is staunchly defending Planned Parenthoodand has chosen to attack those that made the undercover videos instead…

The White House expressed its firm belief Thursday that recently-released videos attacking Planned Parenthood are “fraudulent.” Their source: Planned Parenthood.

Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, was speaking with reporters when they raised the matter of the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress which appear to show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal organs for profit, a violation of federal law. He claimed the videos were released in a “fraudulent way” with “not a lot of evidence” behind them.

“There is ample reason to think that this is merely the tried and true tactic that we’ve seen from extremists on the right to edit this video and selectively release this edited version of the video that grossly distorts the position of the person that’s actually speaking,” Earnest said.

This is a level of evil that is almost unspeakable.

The Obama administration has stated that it will veto any bill passed by Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, and the Justice Department has already announced that it is going to conduct a formal investigation of the Center for Medical Progress.

Of course the Obama administration and Congress have already known for years that Planned Parenthood was selling the body parts of dead babies.  So this is nothing new.  It is just that these new undercover videos have brought the issue into the spotlight.

And the Republicans are far from innocent in this matter.  When George W. Bush was in the White House and when the Republicans had control of Congress there was no effort to try to defund Planned Parenthood even though they knew that this was going on.

But Obama has taken things to a whole new level.  He seems to revel in all of this evil.  According to CNS News, the president of Planned Parenthood has actually made 39 visits to the White House since Barack Obama took power…

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, head of the taxpayer-subsidized abortion giant currently facing a firestorm for allegedly selling body parts harvested from aborted babies, has made personal visits to the White House 39 times since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, White House records show.

According to online records on the White House website, Richards first visited the White House on Jan. 20, 2009 — the same day Obama first took office. Since then, Richards has met with Obama alone at least three times and First Lady Michelle Obama at least twice. She also met with president and his wife together another four times.

And of course the woman that many believe is most likely to be our next president is standing up for Planned Parenthood as well.  Just check out what Hillary Clinton told reporters just the other day

“It is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood has been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years,” she said, “and it’s really an attack against a woman’s right to choose, to make the most personal difficult decisions that any woman would face.”

It is hard to imagine anyone being a worse president than Barack Obama, but Hillary Clinton would certainly give him a run for his money.

While the mainstream media in the United States endlessly attacks other candidates, they pretty much give Hillary Clinton a free pass even though she has far more scandals in her past than anyone.

The arrogance of the Clintons is absolutely astounding.  Even though they knew that Hillary was going to run for president, Bill has still been running around sleeping with other women.  The following comes from an article that was published by the Daily Mail just this week…

Just last year Ronald Kessler’s book, ‘The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,’ which detailed Hillary’s derisive treatment of her Secret Service team, claimed that Clinton had a busty mistress nicknamed ‘the Energizer’ by his security staff.

Now Kessler, whose book is currently out in paperback, is in no doubt that more revelations will emerge as the presidential campaign heats up.

Speaking to Daily Mail Online Kessler said: ‘There’s no question that more will be coming out about Bill Clinton’s sexual antics as the campaign heats up – more details that will surely embarrass Hillary and maybe even end up defeating her.’

Among the revelations in his book are explosive claims that Clinton has a ‘blonde, busty mistress, and she’s been code named Energizer by agents.’

He reveals, ‘This is unofficially, but it’s what they call her…She comes in to the Chappaqua home whenever Hillary leaves. The details coordinate to make sure they don’t cross paths. She, unlike Hillary, is very nice to the [security] agents. She’ll bring cookies.’

Sadly, the truth is that our politicians are a reflection of who we have become as a nation.

The reason why we have evil leaders is because we have become evil.

Back in World War II, we fought to rid the world of the Nazis, but now we are becoming the Nazis.

Very shortly, we are going to be moving into a time when lots of really bad things are going to start happening to this nation.

And you know what?

We are going to deserve all of it.

I believe that right now we are being given an opportunity to see just how wicked we have become.

But there is no sign that we are turning away from that evil.  Instead, we just keep racing into even more depravity.

Killing babies and selling their body parts is wicked.

There is no middle ground.

And since this is the path that our nation has willingly chosen, we will receive the appropriate judgment for this great evil from the God who created all things.

The Rule of Law Is Dead In America

Constitution-Dead

Obama’s latest bypassing of Congress to implement a Climate Change Treaty by decree illustrates there is now only Rulers and the Ruled

I have been working for the last few weeks on an essay series related to what a moral and religious remnant must understand in the light of current events and politics under the Obama regime.

The affronts to what is left of our Constitutional Republic are happening now daily – almost to the point we cannot keep up with them.  We reel from yesterday’s affronts while new ones break today.  Americans are growing weary of outrage – as the tripwires to prevent despotic tyranny via the checks and balances instituted in our government system are compromised, ignored or overthrown altogether.   Most of the Federal Representatives in Congress have decided to go along with this velvet coup, because they know where the power is going to lie and they want a seat at the table so they can pass their hat and have our money thrown in it.

This is all by design – a technique of attrition to trod any resistance into surrender and capitulation.

What it lays before us in raw form, is the undeniable fact that the rule of law in America is dead.  There is now only law made or agreed to by the rulers to be imposed on those of us they rule.

Karl Denninger at Market Ticker just posted an excellent opening entree to the essays I have been working on and will post soon.

The Impending Catastrophe

It’s not difficult to see this coming, if you bother to look.

There is no rule of law any more if you’re a government employee — or one of those protected by same.

Let’s put together just a partial list:

  • Health care.  Monopoly and/or cartel behavior of any sort is supposed to be illegal under 15 USC (Sherman and Clayton Acts) if market power exists.  When you’re flat on your ass with a heart attack in process there is no market; ergo, it exists.  Ditto when you were just stung by a scorpion, or when the so-called “treating facility” refuses to present you with a price before they have you on the operating table — and they told you that the operation was immediately necessary to save your health and/or life.  That’s essentially all procedures except for elective, cosmetic ones — where there is actual competition and prices have fallen over time.  All of this behavior, from charging $60,000 for two $100 vials of scorpion antivenom, charging someone $9,000 to bandage a finger or billing a routine $10-30 test at $10,000 is part and parcel of this, and in any unprotected line of business everyone involved would do 10 years of prison time and be fined $1 million each.
  • Government agencies, such as the IRS and NSA.  The number of times that have been documented in which perjury has been committed, a crime, (cough-Clapper-cough!) is too long to list.  We now find out that in the IRS targeting investigation not only is there a backup of Lerner’s computer (as I originally asserted there had to be) but IRS lawyers admitted to the intentional destruction of the data on her BlackBerry after the investigation began.  For you or I that would immediately result in an obstruction of justice felony charge leveled against everyone involved – including Lerner herself.  Well, where is it?
  • Education.  Cartel behavior at its finest.  You can find virtually any sort of knowledge and lectures on any topic you wish online nowdays.  Yet without obtaining them at a price infinitely higher than those freely available, the exact same material I might add and often delivered by the exact same professors, your knowledge is deemed immaterial and worthless.  This occurs due to cartel behavior between universities and businesses — again, something that should bring immediate prosecution under 15 USC.  Well, where is it?
  • Education again.  Not content to try to force you to pay them something they also conspire to force you to pay more.  Once you’re a captive sucker you get hammered on all sides; you are first told to file a FASFA in which your parents must disclose their assets and income, never mind that you’re an adult.  Then, if you’re not poor, despite this being sold to you as being a means of obtaining “aid”, you are offered only loans, which are not aid at all.  This particular cartel behaviorincludes the government as they will attempt to force you to file one even to claim things they say are earned, such as “Bright Futures” scholarships!  Once you get to class it’s even worse; your son or daughter who paid the full price (and had to borrow the money and thus pay interest too!) is sitting next to a kid who paid little or nothing.  How?  Your son or daughter was effectively forced to buy his tuition!  Communism at its finest, all at gunpoint.
  • So-called “law enforcement.”  Point a gun at another person when you are not legally permitted to shoot (e.g. to stop a forcible felony in process) and you are arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon (or aggravated assault in some jurisdictions.)  The identical behavior was documented on video and still camera images all over Ferguson by the police; where are the indictments?
  • Banks.  Swindle someone out of $10,000 and it’s grand theft, extortion, fraud or any one of a dozen other crimes, all serious felonies.  Hell, all you have to do is a pass a bad check in many jurisdictions to wind up on the wrong end of a felony indictment!  It has been proved that myriad large banks sold securities to customers representing them as “good investments” when in fact their own internal emails document that their staff called them “vomit” (and other similar names) — that is, they knew they were worthless.  Where are the indictments?
  • The Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve Act specifically charges the FOMC with regulating both money and credit so as to maintain stable prices, moderate long term interest rates and maximum employment.  Maximum employment may be a loosely-defined goal as may “moderate” long-term interest rates but stable is not a fuzzy word.  The Federal Reserve has willfully and intentionally violated this mandate serially since its inception.  You have about 3-4% of your earnings powerstolen every single year as a consequence.  Where are the indictments?
  • Ben Bernanke has admitted that (in his view) virtually all systemically important financial firms were on the edge of collapse in 2008.  This, he cites, is justification for his extraordinary policy moves.  There’s a problem — his mandate is to regulate said money and credit systems all the time, not just in a crisis.  That filing is an admission that both he and the NY Fed failed to do so; that is, they failed to perform their statutory duty.  Why aren’t both he and Tim Geithner in prison, seeing as he made this admission before a court in a sworn filing?

Here’s the problem with this sort of behavior and the protection of same: Civility in general only exists because you, I, and most of the rest of society willingly conform our behavior to the law.  

There are not enough cops, no matter what sort of badge and uniform they wear, to enforce the law otherwise.  If any material percentage of the population decides to behave as these people in their protected circumstances have and do the entirety of law and order collapses instantly.

Well, why is it that you permit the above to occur?  Why did you allow it to develop?  Why do you still allow it?

And how long will it before all of this theft and fraud renders you unable to keep your head above water?

Let me explain that for you: For most people you’re already unable.

Look at the stock market, as one example.  There is more margin debt outstanding than cash in accounts as of today, and in fact this margin is worse than ever before in history (yes, even worse than in 2007.)  In other words, but for the claimed paper value of said certificates the market is factually bankrupt right now on a gross, “every man” basis!

Almost 20% of the gross domestic product of this nation (that is, everything produced) is siphoned off by the health care “system” with its grift, extortion and abuse.  That’s nearly one dollar in five!  A look at other developed, first-world nations (e.g. Japan) discloses that we should be able to buy our health care for somewhere between 1/10th and 1/5th of what we pay today.  Were that to be the case there would be no need for Medicare, Medicaid or health insurance — Obamacare or otherwise! Medicare is a great example; you’re responsible for 20% of the cost, by default, and you must pay a premium to the government.  But if your care was anywhere from 1/5th to 1/10th of today’s price you would actually pay less than the co-pay and deductible you pay today and you wouldn’t pay any premium at all!  In other words, even for the old guy or gal that currently is “on the dole” and allegedly “getting something” you’d be better off financially without Medicare were all of these acts to be prosecuted instead of protected!  Whether you’re rich, poor, young or retired, this scam steals from you each and every day without delivering any more value than it would without the theft.

Take the scam out of education and the cost collapses.  Now you could flip pizzas to pay for college as you could in the 1970s and early 80s before those schemes were instituted.  Prosecute The Federal Reserve Board and Banks and the price of assets, including houses would collapse — probably by 75% or more.  Not only does this mean you could buy a house for far less but for those who choose not to or who can’t rents would come down by 3/4 as well!

Why do you need Section 8 and other similar programs when your cost of housing is cut to a tiny fraction of what it is today?

You don’t!

If you believe that the cost of food hasn’t skyrocketed in the last five years you’re not paying attention.  It has.  Ditto for energy.  Oh yes, those are “excluded” from “inflation” numbers, but you have to buy them anyway.

So what happens when you can’t make the income balance against the outflow?  You borrow money in some form or fashion.

Yet that simply puts you further in the hole.

And that’s what’s been going since roughly 1980:

Of course borrowing against nothing, that is, creating credit with nothing behind it, looks good initially because it makes it appear you can keep buying things.  Unfortunately that credit comes with both a requirement to repay it and interest; the latter is a huge problem because over time it compounds just as do earnings.

The usual chestnut is that borrowing stimulates production and is of net benefit.  But the facts are that when borrowing accumulates faster than output that assertion is proved false; what is really going on is that people are borrowing to either consume or speculate.  The former permanently destroys value and the latter leaves you exposed to instant insolvency since the alleged “price” of what you speculate on has been disconnected from its value and is now largely (or even entirely!) predicated only on what someone else will pay.

The majority opinion appears to be that as long as you can get your little piece of the grift, whether it be Medicare, Food Stamps, Section 8 or a rising stock market it’s all ok.  Ask yourself — is that actually true or are you deluding yourself?  Are you falling behind despite getting your little piece of the grift or are you getting ahead?  What about your children?  Are they able to get ahead?  Is the same sort of investment you made 20 or 30 years ago credible as a means for them to obtain results similar or superior to what you obtained, or are they staring down a black hole of indebtedness while pulling coffees at Starbucks?  How about that “new car”; nearly $40,000 today as a “median” price and loan terms extending toward eight years — when just a little while ago the normal term was four.  How’s the job market in your area?  More importantly than the number of jobs — how’s the pay and how does that compare against the increase in health care, food, fuel and insurance expenses you must pay every day just to remain solvent?

Think about it for a while.

Then once again contemplate this: For how long as you going to allow all of the above to continue?  Will you allow it to continue right up until civility is lost entirely or will you demand that it stop and that those committing these acts face the same charges and penalties that you or I would for the same offenses?

Constitutional Debt Crisis: Obama Wants Power Of The Purse Or He Will Order Default

KingObamaFinger

Obama is forcing a Constitutional Crisis – by threatening to default on the nation’s debts – a power he does not have, unless he intends to usurp them from Congress.

Best explanation of the “debt-crisis’ and what Obama is attempting to do should he succeed.

H/T Mark Levin – Human Events

REP. MCCLINTOCK (R-CA) BREAKS DOWN THE DEBT CRISIS

Tom McClintock, Republican representative from California’s 4th District, spoke yesterday on the House floor, where he addressed the debt crisis and the madness surrounding the debt ceiling:

Mr. Speaker:

The debt limit exists for a simple reason: to assure that public debt isn’t recklessly piled up without Congress periodically acknowledging it and addressing the spending patterns that are causing it.  If a debt limit increase is supposed to be automatic, as the President suggests, there really is no purpose to it.

A new dimension has now appeared in this discussion.  Unlike every one of his predecessors, this President has vowed that unless Congress unconditionally raises the debt limit, the United States will default on its sovereign debt.

But a failure to raise the debt limit would not by itself cause the nation to default. The Government Accountability Office has consistently held that the Treasury Secretary has “the authority to choose the order in which to pay obligations of the United States” to protect the nation’s credit.  Such authority is inherent in the 1789 act that established the Treasury Department and entrusted it with the “management of the revenue” and the “support of public credit.”  The affirmative duty of the Treasury Department to do so is underscored by the 14th Amendment.

Our revenues are more than ten times our debt payments, so paying the debt first to prevent a sovereign default is well within the financial ability of the federal government – and indeed, it is a fiscal imperative.

Earlier this year, the House passed HR 807, which not only explicitly requires the payment of the national debt in the case of an impasse over the debt limit, but even allows the President to exceed the debt limit itself in order to protect the nation’s credit.

That measure languishes in the Senate under the threat of a Presidential veto.

Protecting the sovereign credit by prioritizing payments would mean delaying paying other bills – which is untenable, unthinkable and something much to be avoided.  But it would not imperil the nation’s sovereign credit.  Only the President can do that.

The House leadership met with the President last week and offered to extend the debt limit until November 22nd with no strings attached.  The President refused.  Senate Republicans offered a six month extension, but the Senate Democratic leader refused.

What the President threatens to do would be catastrophic and unprecedented.  The full faith and credit of the United States is what gives markets the confidence to loan money to the federal government.  Even a credible threat of default – exactly the kind the President is now making — could have dire consequences to a nation that now owes more than its entire economy produces in a year.

So where do we go from here?

Republicans have miscalculated on two key assumptions: First, that the Democrats would negotiate the issues that divide the country; they have not.  Second, that Democrats would seek to minimize the suffering caused by the impasse; they have not.

Given the ruthless and vindictive way the shutdown has been handled, I now believe that this President would willfully act to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States unless the Congress acquiesces to all of his demands, at least as long as he sees political advantage in doing so.  His every statement and action is consistent with this conclusion.

If the Republicans acquiesce, the immediate crisis will quickly vanish, credit markets will calm and public life will return to other matters.

But a fundamental element of our Constitution will have been destroyed.   The power of the purse will have shifted from the representatives of the people to the executive.  The executive bureaucracies will be freed to churn out ever more outlandish regulations with no effective Congressional review or check through the purse.  A perilous era will have begun, in which the President sets spending levels and vetoes any bill falling short of his demands.  Whenever a deadline approaches, one house can simply refuse to negotiate with the other until Congress is faced with the Hobson’s choice of a shut-down or a default.

The nation’s spending will again dangerously accelerate, the deficit will again rapidly widen, and the economic prosperity of the nation will continue to slowly bleed away.

This impasse may have started as a dispute over a collapsing health program but it has now taken on the dimensions of a Constitutional crisis.

Yesterday in Washington, a group of America’s veterans rose up to take a stand against these constitutional usurpations.  I believe the salvation of our nation now depends on the American people joining them.

Obama Threatens America With Pain & Punishment If He Does Not Get His Way

obama-threatens

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:

Obama Warns Social Security Checks Will Be Delayed Absent Debt Limit Hike

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:

Obama warns world markets there is no guarantee U.S. will avoid defaulting on its debts

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.

Obama Warns of Financial Tumult: Markets ‘Should be Concerned’

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.

Government Shut Down Blame Game

ShutDown

A last ditch effort by the GOP to keep government running but suspending ObamaCare subsidies for Congress and their staff is rejected by the Democrat MarxoFascists, prompting the Federal shut down.  

There is this truth: the cabal running Washington D.C. will rather delight in everything burning down than to surrender their taxpayer-funded perks.  For them, some animals are more equal than others.

The GOP leadership’s late offer to the Senate and Obama was a bill that funds the government through Dec. 15, but included a measure to delay the health care law’s individual mandate while getting rid of federal subsidies for the health insurance of members of Congress and their staff — an idea pushed by Louisiana Sen. David Vitter.  But Harry Reid and the Ruling Class in the Senate rejected the offer, preferring the political football they think will be easily played over the heads of their low-information welfare voting constituency.

Breitbart also has the story:

SENATE SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT TO SAVE ITS OBAMACARE SUBSIDIES

SNIP

…In the final hours before the midnight deadline, the House ended with a simple proposal. It would agree to fund the government, if the Senate agreed to scrap the special subsidies lawmakers and staff receive to purchase health insurance. The final House proposal only effected people on Capitol Hill. Harry Reid said, effectively, we’ll shut down the government to keep our subsidies.

 The Senate, however, rejected both provisions. Had it opted to eliminate its own special subsidies, the government would be open today. Preserving its own platinum health insurance coverage drove the Senate to close the government. But the Praetorian Media will never report this truth.  Instead they will parrot Obama’s blame game on ‘extremist Republicans’ ‘holding the country hostage’.

Every Senate Democrat Voted In Favor Of Exempting Themselves From ObamaCare

One of the most profoundly unfair provisions of Obamacare is that members of Congress and their staffers were unilaterally and illegally granted a special exemption from the law they themselves passed. Unlike many Americans, many of whom have been forcibly kicked off their current health care plans, the governing class and their staffers as of now will keep their insurance providers and receive an enormous taxpayer subsidy (depending on which plan they choose) to off-set rising health care costs. Sound fair? I didn’t think so. As it happened, many congressional staffers threatened to resign if they were forced to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges and comply with the mandate — even though many of them helped draft (and ultimately pass) the legislation.

….Democrats voted in lock-step with their party to buck the House of Representative’s duly passed spending bill on several occasions. Not only did they reject a continuing resolution that would end this unjust and unfair Obamacare waiver — a de facto endorsement of special privileges and protections for members of Congress — they voted against the provision to delay the law’s controversial mandate requirement to purchase health insurance.

That said, what is happening IS NOT a government shut down.  It is a political ploy to add maximum pain upon the American people and inflict misery and punishment for the purpose of attempting to turn popular opinion against Conservatives.   Obama’s existing scheme of Sequester and this shut down is just another tool in the hand of the MarxoFascists to hurt the American people.

If we are going to have a REAL government shut-down – then We The People should send Congress, the Courts and Obama HOME WITHOUT PAY – WITHOUT PERKS – WITHOUT PENSION.  Let THEM apply for unemployment like the little people they inflict their misery upon.  While we are at it, kill the Alphabets – shut down the IRS, the NSA, DHS and the EPA.  Worthless money-sucking agents of tyranny that need to be abolished anyway.

It’s Time to Accept Reality that it’s Too Late

Guest Essay from my dear Friend John over at Shenendoah.  Sums up my sentiments based on the news I am reading while over here in the third world.

Will I even have a country left to return to?

It’s Time to Accept Reality that it’s Too Late

Hard as this to believe, I’m no longer going to pound my head on an exposed nail in the wall and preach to the insane that the world is about to end. In fact, I have no intention of any longer telling the foolish that the world is about implode. I’ve warned. I’ve preached. I’ve provided the warning signs. The financial system is irrevocably broken and the idiots in charge continue to preach that all is well, keep moving. Why should I or anyone else continue to say that it will fail? Michael Panzer in his book Financial Armageddon attempted to spell out the obvious and what did that get him? A great selling book yes, but deliberate, calculated mockery on CNBC and other financial networks designed to impugn his work, yet never actually denying the reality of his facts or statements.

Select a politician, radio host, religious figure, or economist who doesn’t toe the line.  Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin was painted as a raving lunatic only to be proven correct by the records of the collapsed Soviet Union some 50 years later. Senator Barry Goldwater was depicted as a warmongering fatalist who wanted the end of the world yet all he advocated were the same policies that were proven prudent and correct by Ronald Reagan just over a decade later. Glenn Beck is being labeled an insane nut job by the “establishment” with a record of alleged racism and Alex Jones like conspiracy radio and television which cost him his job at Fox News, while continuously putting pressure on Clear Channel and the talk radio traditionalists who warn him that he continues to make too many waves.  God forbid a pastor, a preacher, or even a choir boy even dare to question the national leadership’s view on religious issues that cross the line with the liberal establishment now as their tax free protections and Constitutional shield will be ripped away to destroy their ability to pray, preach, and save the souls that come to them because they dare to speak their beliefs.

Sadly, the most abandoned group of souls is not the previous list of honorees, but in fact those men who claim to be of science, the art of economics. While numerous individuals dare to debate the merits of the alleged science of economics, the idea of studying human behavior with historical and scientific relevance has been destroyed since the universal adoption of quasi-Marxism and the ideals of Keynes became the “mainstream” of the elites within the institutions of learning worldwide. The ideas of open learning were abandoned after World War I because in the academia the belief was that diversity of information created the foundation for the “Great War” because it opened nations and peoples to ideals that were too difficult for the average citizen or politician to comprehend. Thus by permeating the myth started within the early era of Marx and expanded with the theories of Keynes that economics was too complicate, the realm of the Dark Ages was restored with the Illuminati or elitists having the ability to comprehend the science much like the early Roman Catholic Church obtained the monopoly of the Bible and Christian religion for centuries.

As Austrian economic theory was often viewed as the Kabbalah of economics by those of the centralized planning and Keynesian view, the minority has survived thanks to the cyclical errors and blunders created by the central banks of the world and misinformed or evil political class. After American abandoned the gold standard which the Constitution demanded, the world perceived that the U.S. was about to move into a more globalist, accommodating stance to depreciate the currency and allow American wealth to be redistributed worldwide thanks to political ineptitude and the inflation tax. For those skeptical readers who doubt the depreciation of the dollar, without illustrating the dramatic 90% plus drop from 1913, here is the graph which indicates just how powerful the inflation tax on consumers has been since 1970:

The last recession with the vivid demonstration of the power of “deflation” or the opposite of everything Bernanke and Company tried to prevent is the only major pause in the inflationary railroad to infinity where the American public is asked to finance the U.S. government and mercantilism to create a demand for a global solution. This demand for a “global” solution should give pause to a sane person but tonight the average North American, European, or Asian citizen is more focused on the antics of Hollywood idiots instead of how the new order is planning to cull the masses. The “truth” is that economics, just like the science of global warming, has been hijacked to fulfill a political agenda for profit and power rather than to inform, study, and educate the systemic flow of capital and emotional behavior as was originally envisioned over a century ago.

It is time for the average person to stop the idea of saving their neighbor, preserving the system by voting for RomneyMcCainBush or ObamaClintonCarter, or believing that the “United Nations” is the ultimate solution to the world’s problems. It is no longer about “let’s create teams” or develop “Tea Parties” to save the Republic or pray for solutions. The reality is that we passed the point of no return in 2008 when Americans actually believed that the screeching of an evil soul who was directing first a globalist bank and then the U.S. Treasury was the truth and salvation of our nation. As that darkness fell in the autumn of that year, our nation fell into the abyss yet most citizens failed to recognize the significance of that event as I did (see Broken Glass, September 24, 2008).

It is too late to save your neighbor.

It is too late to save your friend.

It is too late to save a family member who will not listen or believes in the power of a global solution.

It is too late to plan for a world of freedom and individualism.

Atlas is shrugging, yet nobody cares.

The power of the people is now the rule of law.

Sadly the “people” who are in control are neither those of the Founders or of God.

Prepare accordingly.
