I doubt it. I have a hard time buying this. YMMV…
Business travel sucks. No way around it.
I’m about to head into the path of Sandy for my last trip prior to the election.
If I’m honest, despite what I know to be true about the upcoming farce, I’m still unnerved a bit.
Either way, the party of Endless War & International Banking wins again.
I may be wrong, but I do believe Obama will pull this off.
What Carter could not do, Obama will: utilize the full power of the State (DOJ Civil Rights Division, for example), the full power of the MSM, the full power of racial invective, and the tools of mass mobilization (FB, and so on) to eke out a victory in November. As sad as it sounds, the U.S. of 2012 is no longer the U.S. of 1980 — and 2008 proved it.
The need for a Nietzschean “Dear Leader” is palpable. Vendors outside the DNC were selling hagiographic memorabilia of Obama using John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world…”) to pose Obama as the Son of God. Inside the Convention, the Dems were doing one better: removing “God” from their platform, leaving Government and Obama as the new implicit Deity. Villaraigosa rammed “God” back in there, but he did so over the protests of most of the delegates — and we all know that the Dems put it back in for tactical reasons, not because they truly have a God aside from Obama. It doesn’t get more unhinged than that; it’s mass psychosis, and most of the country is infected with it. Obama is the beneficiary, and a transitory one at that, but he is a useful marker of our decline: a Nation that can elect an Obama is a Nation that will not last long. Hence the need to prepare for the eventual break-up of the U.S.
I am not particularly religious, but even I am scared as hell of the Dems now. This hunger to deify a mortal man signals the end of any republican inclination in a large percentage of the American populace, just as the same urge to deification signaled the end of the Roman Republic. History doesn’t always repeat, but it does rhyme.
And I hope we all are clear on what such a population is capable of.

That’s some scary excrement right there.
Sic transit gloria mundi.
Whenever man is given the spotlight, our true nature shines through and literally millions die. It. Happens. Every. Damn. Time. Why would this time be any different? Add our current tech levels to that equation and you have the formula for mass slaughter on a historically epic scale.
This is not an, “he must be defeated at any cost…” post either. The other guy is just as bad – only delaying the inevitable. It’s the philosophical construct here.
The state is not God. It will never be. Man is imperfect and deeply flawed. Relying on the morality of either of those will cause civilization to tumble.
In my life, I never thought I would see an article like this out in the open and not buried down in some obscure, tinfoil hat publication:
Whatever chicanery Obama and his investors may be contemplating, it will probably unfold against some gargantuan crisis, manufactured or otherwise. So cast your mind back to September 11, 2001, the day of the New York mayoral primary.
I fear some of this may come to fruition between now and January 2013.
See this article about the Demonrat Senator from TX and his “lets kill the cartel leaders with drone strikes” recent electoral defeat.
Can’t do a permalink to it, but there is a comment from one, “florian.royack” that says this:
I believe any elected representative, Rep-Dem or INd who supports drones in US airspace should be voted out of office
As do I, though we all know that won’t happen – or will it? My answer, btw, is just to end The War on SOME Drugs.
Perhaps, in some minute way, a tide, somewhere, just turned…
Because of where we are as a nation and where we are headed into the fall, I believe (invoking emotion & opinion and not fact) it is different this time.
It is clear that the current regime is collaborating with the usual race suspects, as well as the media to foment what is likely to be a very bloody summer across America. Create the crisis, implement the solution.
This guy is merely a cog. He wields no actual power, and makes no decisions except what he wants as a midnight snack.
If you believe any different, you are essentially a fool.
While these actions will impact the upcoming unpleasantness, your day to day marches on as usual. Keep your head up, your wits about you, and your powder dry. Do not let this paltry distraction allow your focus to shift from building your tribe and asserting your individual Liberty.
And not by me…
Look for the R’s to hand President Obama the election.
Hillary: WaPo floated her as VP again, expanding the field of professional D’s that are flirting with a subversive assault on the Obama machine. This will be the real story of the election cycle, I’m afraid.
All things considered, how does this impact your preps and the battlespace going forward? Doesn’t matter if you don’t dig on politics. I don’t either anymore, but as it has been said before, who is in office next January will have an impact on you going forward whether you like it or not.
Neal Boortz, when I used to listen to him, constantly espoused this very statement about Hillary Clinton.
To be brutally honest and a little tin foil hat’ish, it would not surprise me in the slightest if the Obama presidency was a setup for Clinton part two. These people are the 21st century’s Hitler, Stalin, & Mao. Only, they have not had the opportunity to become what they believe themselves to be.
“Please O’ anointed ones! Come. Save us from ourselves!”
Read the WSJ piece and contemplate what this political landscape would look like and how it would impact the battlespace going forward:
He should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in a way that preserves the most important of the president’s accomplishments. He should step aside for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Never before has there been such an obvious potential successor—one who has been a loyal and effective member of the president’s administration, who has the stature to take on the office, and who is the only leader capable of uniting the country around a bipartisan economic and foreign policy.
Could you even imagine the power this woman would wield should she be elected on the heels of the Man Child? Remember, the original ’94 weapons ban, and the first run at dotgov run healthcare were essentially authored and implemented by this crew. Our Once Great Republic is ripe for conquering with regard to this type of campaign. You wanna talk sweeping reform? You only have to look at the new savior in this woman to see it.
Winter is coming to quote AP. This storm out on our horizon, if it forms up, might be the one that gets us in the end.
Again, not a political blog. However, this is pretty interesting. How does it change the dynamic?
How will this impact your plans and preps? What will you do to mitigate? How will you operate in this environment openly or unobtrusively?
