Manchurian to the Nth Degree

When the Truth Hurts
Ordinarily I do not base an article solely on the work of another author, preferring instead to research the works of many in order to create a body of my own. Today is different, however, as I have the work of Stella Paul of American Thinker to relay and somewhat summarize for you. Ms. Paul has not reported much new, per se, but she has managed to stitch together the threads of well-known Obama strange doings in a way that made me sit bolt upright in my chair.

Her article -- "Will Obama Keep Power 'by Any Means Necessary'?" -- punched me square in the gut as I simultaneously smacked my forehead. The title asks a question many of us have privately wondered to ourselves, only to wave the thought away as "fringe" and outlandish. This is precisely what the Progressives have counted upon. It's also how they have, er, "progressed" so far in the alteration of the land we love, right under our noses.

Even as I write this, more pieces of the grand puzzle come to light, and I now refuse to be complicit in my own enslavement. Therefore, I am throwing off the governor that inhibits what many would successfully call conspiracy theory, because once the path is lit, traversing it is child's play, even at night, and I mean to find what's at the end of it. Before continuing, I strongly recommend reading Ms. Paul's article in its entirety, as I will refer to it frequently and with a minimum of clarification as I move forward.

To begin, one must wonder, finally, about the meteoric rise of Obama. Think about that for a moment...where did this guy come from? If you're old enough to be reading this and old enough to have lived through a few presidential election cycles, you will realize that there has never -- in America's history -- been such an unknown or non-quantified person to ever win the presidential election. Yet, here is President Obama. Some may point to America's ultimate desire to finally have a black president, but Obama was not the first candidate to meet that criterion. No other black candidate even came within a whiff of the Oval Office despite being much more widely acquainted with the electorate.

Once he secured the Democratic National Committee (DNC) nod as the 2008 candidate, Obama began to campaign in earnest. There, he committed more Freudian slips than a police suspect on sodium pentothal, and while some in the "new media" pointed out these lapses in tactical acumen, the mainstream media ran a better propaganda campaign than Joseph Goebbels could have ever imagined. Who could forget his slip in the George Stephanopoulos interview in 2008, when Obama said "my Muslim faith", only to be quickly corrected by the host. And then there is the famous "Joe the Plumber" incident, when candidate Obama said plainly that it's better to spread the wealth around.

These are not American ideals to a vast majority of people. Still, Obama won the election by some miracle, and what he's done since is where the meat of Paul's article lies.

It leads straight to the media culpability in providing cover for the Obama Presidency and its subsequent machinations, which began in earnest shortly after Inauguration Day. With a media all to willing to help such a president, the events of his tenure have seems like infrequent blips on an all but moribund radar screen, but taken together and with proper attention, they are chilling.

Right out of the gate, this president went on what I refer to as the Forgive Us Our Trespasses tour, despite the president's own denials at the third debate. He was in Cairo apologizing for America's "rudeness" and "having dictated to other countries". Regardless of his or the media's refusal to acknowledge these acts, Obama did do them. We all saw it.

Then there were the auto bailouts, where the president disregarded bankruptcy law in handing GM over to the unions at the expense of the rightful bondholders; the investors, who lost out. Throw in his failed "green energy" string of red ink, and the ball was rolling on bankrupting all of us. Here we stand at $16 trillion in debt and counting all the while this president called his predecessor "unpatriotic" for paying on credit for two wars that Congress approved.

Who do they plan on shooting?
The so-called "Arab Spring" had such a nice sound to it, didn't it? I mean, here we were watching "democracy" sprout in Islamist countries. Who would oppose such a notion? Yet now we are seeing the Muslim Brotherhood beginning to take control of a large portion of the Middle East, and I bet that democracy is not in their immediate future.

What about Obama telling Medvedev on a hot mike that he will have more flexibility after he's re-elected? No one even asked the question.

But perhaps the most disturbing events of all are what's been going on here at home. We've had the Department of Homeland Security running military drills in Los Angeles, Chicago, and a few other cities. We're seeing drones being utilized all across the countries. Who is the DHS training in these drills, anyway? Are they training their forces for urban combat, or are they training us to expect these actions as routine when they finally prepare to attack?

And finally, the bullets. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has purchased  46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets, otherwise known as "cop killers". Really, the weather channel needs to be armed?

Following that act, the Social Security Administration purchased 174,000 rounds of the same rounds to be distributed to 41 locations across the country. The most chilling news, though, I will excerpt from Ms. Paul's article:

Most terrifying of all, Major General Curry reports that the Department of Homeland Security ordered 750 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition in March, then subsequently ordered an additional 750 million rounds, including bullets capable of penetrating walls.
"This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen," writes Major General Curry, who wonders what plan might require "so many dead Americans."

One must wonder, indeed. We have 13 days until Election Day, and we have to hope we get there first, hope that Obama is defeated, and then hope that the period between the vote and the inauguration sees no "catastrophe" that will give Obama a reason to use his Executive Orders in order to seize a new term.
