I had planned on noting the decline in the estimated annualized 4th-quarter real GDP growth from 2.6% to 2.2%, and ObamaCare’s outsized effect on that, but another topic caught my eye. Yeterday, Peter posed the probability that Obama and his administration wants to provoke the populace into violence in order to justify the last steps of a fundamental transformation.
Normally, such provocations would first result in the impeachment and conviction of not just the President, but the entire administration. However, in the present political climate, not only will not a single Democrat vote for either impeachment or conviction, but the “majority” party is bound and determined to not do a <expletive deleted> thing to stop the provocations, whether it is to offer impeachment charges, withhold the authority to spend on an amnesty policy that they like even if they don’t get the credit, stop an overreaching administration bureau from banning ammunition that is allowed by the Geneva Convention,…. I could continue on that track, but I’d end up writing a month’s worth of words on just how the
Republicans RepublicRAT half of the bipartisan Party-In-Government has betrayed its country and former base.
A few hours ago, Juliette identified the latest two ObamiNation assaults on the Constitution, the aforementioned ammo ban and the still-secret regulations of the internet by the FCC, as more tactics designed to provoke an incident providing a pretext for martial law. While they are primarily tactics for that purpose, they’re also quite useful after the transition to a post-Constitutional country.
So, what’s next? Does one give in and take a seat at the table of Revolution now? No, not yet. As illegitimate as the administration is, it still retains the appearance of legitimacy, so even if the rest of the world weren’t otherwise inclined to support it, they would.
Rather, one has to be ready for the appearance of legitimacy to drop. If the administration truly wants to go down that road, let them go past the point of no return. Make them recreate Operation Canned Goods.
