As I said earlier this morning:
I can’t help but wonder if we aren’t at or beyond a tipping point against Obama and the Democrats… even from people who supported their election. The amazing part is, whereas it took Bill Clinton quite literally years to get to this point, we’re only 30 days into the Obama presidency. We still have 1470 days, more or less, to go.
“Troops will spend Thursday, April 2, staging at a forward operations base at Carroll. The next day company leaders will conduct reconnaissance and begin patrolling the streets of Arcadia to identify possible locations of the weapons dealer.The primary phase will be done Saturday, April 4, when convoys will be deployed from Carroll to Arcadia. Pictures of the arms dealer will be shown in Arcadia, and soldiers will go door to door asking if residents have seen the suspect.”
(Carroll, Iowa Daily Times Herald )
Okay, if that doesn’t make your skin crawl, then why not?
Indeed, why not?
I’ll tell you, folks… This stuff does tend to confirm my read about the anger that’s welling up against the left… including those in our current government, since it’s only fear of exactly that anger that would prompt such training. They feel the need to protect themselves and their agenda. Honestly, I can’t recall ever having been so worried about being vindicated before.
What is prompting that anger?
Joan Swirsky nails it, in her article, “Obama’s Revenge”, and here’s a few snips of that:
In the less-than four weeks of his presidency, the new president has taken volumes from the Marxian handbook, which dictates that the stupid masses be blitzed with an overload of information, hollow press conferences, appointments, dismantling of formerly effective national-security programs, et al., in order to set the stage for a massive, Soviet-style takeover of our government, including a civilian national security force that Obama has said should be “just as powerful, strong and well-funded as the U.S. military.” Echoes of Nazi Germany in 1938, anyone?
According to writer Kyle-Anne Shrive, in Obama’s ascendance:
“We have yet to see a more perfect collision of Murphy’s Law with the Peter Principle. In only three weeks’ time, [he] has signaled to every terrorist on the planet that we are a sorry, groveling, ashamed nation ready to come to the diplomatic confessional. He is closing Gitmo within one year, has suspended trials there, and dismissed the charges against the U.S.S. Cole plotter. [He] has just put our money where his mouth is and is using $20.3 million to bring in Palestinian refugees from Gaza…[he] had the gall to pronounce the so-called economic stimulus bill absolutely free of `earmarks’ and `make-do work’…but according to the Congressional Budget Office [this bill] will do worse to our overall economy than no government action whatsoever.”
And Obama has done all this with the predictable double-speak that characterizes malevolent intention, i.e., touting transparency while concealing everything, speaking of integrity while appointing crooks and incompetents riddled with conflicts-of-interest, supporting energy independence while killing off-shore and domestic oil-drilling and nuclear power, and feigning optimism while he speaks of impending “catastrophe” in order to push through a pork-laden, trillion-dollar-plus Stimulus plan that rewards the corrupt voter-fraud organization Acorn with billions and unions with discriminatory union-only labor agreements, paves the way for socialized medicine, and threatens to take away the most cherished rights of We The People.
As blogger Eric Gurr has said: “We still talk about the health care crisis, the environmental crisis, the oil crisis, the banking crisis. Let me tell you my friends you are about to learn the meaning of the only crisis that matters, the survival crisis.”
And now, just now, I note market futures are tanking. When the market opens this morning, we’re going to see the numbers falling like stones. Housing prices have fallen, so have stock prices, which affects people’s savings and retirement. Have you guys even noticed what’s been happening t0 your retirement accounts? I’m sure you can follow the bloodbath on Drudge, today.
Here it is, people:
The biggest source of problem for those seeking socialism here in the US,and the destruction of the US as a free nation , is a strong and empowered middle class. If the object is to eliminate the middle class’s empowerment, I can’t think of a more effective way to go than that which Obama has obviously chosen, or had chosen for him. With the housing problem, the banking problem, and the jobs issues going the way they’re going, the middle class will be right where the socialists want them; dependant on government in a way we never have been before. And as people figure this stuff out, they’re going to react. Indeed, ARE reacting already, as we’ve noted here.
Oh, and by the way.. is there any doubt.. any doubt left in your mind, about why Democrats are trying to use government to shut Limbaugh and Hannity up? And Blogs, and …(Ahem)
Is the purpose of these training runs Billy speaks of, becoming a bit clearer to you now?
“But using troops on American citizens is unconstitutional!”
ADDENDUM: It’s been pointed out to me via Email, (and correctly) that this kind of training run has occurred for years. One correspondant described such action as he had been involved with in the 70’s. And that’s quite true, there have been such training programs previously. As true as that is, however, I will say it does seem to stretch credibility just a bit, that this is simply another case of bad optics surrounding the recent power shift in Washington.
