I agree with the Monster: there are several simmering and deliberate distractions going on intended to focus our attention away from:
- *Health insurance reform (cough, gag…making me sick already…)
- *The Global Climate Change Treaty (aka, RUST, the ‘remove US sovereignty treaty’), which will effect the sovereignty of the United States in many ways,
- Obama’s sinking poll numbers
- Obama and Congress’ anti-American agenda and efforts to undermine the Constitution,
- *The American people’s growing awareness of and concern about the Congress, the Executive and all of the above
- *Internal chaos within the White House regarding Afghanistan.
In my view, the real issue is the Global Climate Change Treaty, health insurance, and the last item, our awareness of the whole scam of Congress and Obama. The internal chaos within the White House, and between the White House and the military deserves its own post as it signals something but I’m not quite sure what yet.
First, the DIVERSIONS
Right now there are a couple of diversions I’d like to mention because they smell like fear…they are on a grand scale and oh-so scary. They look backwards in time.
- The False Debate between Obama and Cheney on Afghanistan
Obama and Cheney are cut from the same cloth as Brzezinski, having the same objectives: destabilization. It is designed to be confusing because of Obama’s Muslim orientation and his natural inability to make a decision, and it provides Obama an opportunity to once again blame Bush. Biden is now involved until he spills the beans on the whole thing. Cheney himself is igniting the issue:
Convenient, yes? Don’t buy into looking backwards with them, this is pure diversion with the ‘appearance’ of republicans versus democrats, or Bush (McCain) v. Obama. Everyone is playing along with it.
- The Attack on Fox News
Hey, did anyone clue in those bozos in the White House that attacking FOX news for its independence is like attacking the people, the First Amendment, and exceeds the authorized powers of the President? Oh, I forgot, they don’t care, and think we are stupid.
Don’t buy into this one either, don’t feed the fever they are trying to generate.
Now, the REAL Issues
- No Constitutional Authority for Health Care Mandate
This blog has reported its understanding that there is no constitutional authority for Congress to mandate health care insurance. No enumerated power under Article I, including the Commerce Clause or taxing authority, allow this kind of action by Congress or the Executive.
Both Patrick Leahy and Nancy Pelosi think we’re not watching. In an unbelievable demonstration of ignorance and arrogance, they both dismissed any question of their authority to undertake this task, disguising their efforts as ‘increasing competition’ and ‘lowering costs’. Baloney.
The ‘public option’ will likely still be included in the final bill, which increases the likelihood of difficulty in passage. Obama will have to spend more money bribing Congressmen or bring in more thugs, I guess. *sigh*
The American Spectator agrees (h/t Bud White):
The ball right now is the unprecedented power grab in the name of health care. That is Obama’s whole immediate domestic ball of wax. Because Obama is losing on the issue, losing quite badly, in the court of public opinion, he is trying to change the subject and distract our attention so we, the broad American public, will ease our pressure against Democrats skittish of doing a lemming act on health care. If we ease our pressure on them on health care in order to fight Obama on other fronts, those skittish Democrats might succumb to the White House pressure instead and use parliamentary tricks to pass the legislative monstrosity Obama seeks.
“The basic tactic in warfare,” wrote Obama’s organizational idol, Saul Alinsky, “is a mass political jujitsu.” And “the real action is in the enemy’s reaction.” And “the major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition,” so “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
- Global Climate Change Treaty
There are many sites that have a cogent analysis of Obama’s potential signing of the Global Climate Change Treaty and what it would mean for the United States. Here is Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, delivering remarks on this treaty:
This is a real goal of Marxist Obama: to dissolve the national boundaries of the United States and place America under a global economic/governance system, designed as good for the world ‘reparations for the environment’ from the United States.
While a real President can make a treaty, it still must be ratified by the Senate, and has to be consistent with the Constitution. We can surely expect deference to a world-government by this Executive and Congress and a weak defense of the Constitution and national sovereignty from the judiciary.
Of course, there are many more issues…and it is worthwhile to sift through the diversions versus the real stuff. At least that is one benefit of our ‘experience’ with Obama–his increasing transparency the more we know.
- Americans’ Growing Awareness of Usurpation
Its laughable that Congress and the President pretend they don’t know Americans are waking up. How many pink slips went to Washington? How many people marched on 912? Alrighty then.
But of course they do know, and they respond by demeaning, ridiculing, stereotyping, and degrading personal comments, against the republicans the people. Atlas Shrugs has a good video up of “President Contempt”.
We can see right through them, but their fighting us with this. Their tactics will backfire, I predict. In a recent poll it was found that 30% of Americans across all parties do not believe that Obama was born in the USA.
Notice: We get it. They all want to rule the world.
