Americans elected a first class deceiver for President and now we reap the consequences. None of what is being revealed about what is going on in this administration surprises or shocks me. I really do not want to even address the issues because there are too many of them and I know that nothing much is going to be done about most of them anyway. The House show will go on but they are dealing with racketeering pros and they will never get to the top.
The evil people behind Obama and the people that he appoints will continue to ignore our Constitution. It’s not just Obama that is the problem, getting rid of the figure-head of the radical left in this country is not going to stop their agenda. Only Americans can change the direction that Americans have allowed to be taken but most Americans are complicit in the unconstitutional actions, brainwashed, ignorant, or apathetic.
Even if they found a smoking gun, nothing will be done to remove Obama. One reason is that they fear the race riots and they know they cannot get the votes to remove him in the Senate. Then there is the thought of crazy Joe taking over. Even if the Republicans could get the majority in the Senate by 2015, they are not likely to be thinking about removing Obama just before a national election. (If what is left of the Republic even survives that long.) So I hate to break the news to you but barring an act of God we will suffer with the Obama administration until at least 2017.
The best that conservatives in House can do now is to try to hinder the progressive tyranny that is underway. When Americans chose to elect leadership that would promote their own covetousness and immorality they brought upon themselves this Obamanation.
This “progressive” government just ignores our Constitution and that lawlessness is not limited to the Executive Branch. The progressives also control the Senate and they influence the House. The Supreme Court and lower courts are also increasingly taking Liberal positions.
Those reading this blog know that I have said for years that you need to assume that all electronic communications are being monitored in this country. Now it comes out that our government has access to just about all electronic information in this country and it has had it for years and Americans act shocked.
What did they think would happen under the Patriot Act, when now the administration just needs to go to their own appointed judges to legally give that order under the national security umbrella? If Americans are willing to give away their constitutional rights for security, I can assure you that government will take those rights. The rights were put in the Constitution to protect the people from tyrannical government. Take away those rights under the guise of national security and tyranny becomes inevitable, as some now see.
We cannot just blame the Obama administration for the big government surveillance programs that are now in place. It all started under George Bush. The Top Secret PRISM program started about seven years ago according to whistle blowers of the NSA. It is now greatly expanded and will continue to expand with the data center that is now going online in Utah. Congress knew about this program. Some in Congress helped set the guidelines and Congress funded the program and Congress has oversight over the NSA.
For Congress to feign shock because NSA took this data mining program further then some in Congress are now comfortable with shows great hypocrisy or complete naivety about bureaucrats given unconstitutional powers and a blank check.
None of this is going to impact Obama. He can claim national security or even claim to be out of the loop and to a large extent he probably was. Valerie Jarrett actually runs Obama and the white house. This is a government run amok because most of the high level appointees and bureaucrats are on the same page, otherwise they would not be in those positions.
Those appointed to top levels of government did not need Obama to order anything. They knew what was expected of them before they took the job. Obama did not have to micromanage the Justice Department, IRS, EPA, Homeland Security or the rest of the Executive Branch. Obama put in place people as radical or more radical than himself and then just sat back and let them do their thing. I doubt if you will find impeachable activity on Obama on the golf course.
We are now getting to a point where all electronic data can be tied together and that is the big danger. Everything about everyone will be on a database. That data on individuals and everyone that they ever were in contact with will be accessible to people the government deems has the need to know. The data about each of us in that central database will be as simple to find as you doing a Google search for information on a topic.
I can see a day with all of your personal information, financial information, medical information, etc. will appear before an analyst with just a few key strokes. If you ever watched “Person of Interest” on TV, the system being fictionalized is not that far off from becoming reality.
So what does the average American say about this total invasion of privacy. Ho hum. And this apathy is why there will be no stopping the Big Brother surveillance. The Obama administration is abusing its power but thus far Obama has let most of that abuse remain in the hands of the control freaks that he appointed. Obama is not a control freak by nature. Put natural control freaks like Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Andrew Como, Michael Bloomberg or Chris Christie in the Presidential office and the Big Brother surveillance capability gets really really scary.
Valerie Jarrett is one of those control freaks and she clearly said that pay back time was coming after the 2012 election. From all the latest abuses of power coming out, apparently she was not blowing smoke. We heard about the IRS targeting but with this surveillance capability who really knows how many people may already be being blackmailed?
Lots of people have secrets that they don’t want exposed, for example, Hillary, Petraeus, and certain other generals. And who got to George Bush in the second term that suddenly turned this conservative anti terrorist hardliner into a big government progressive wuss? After seeing the sudden change in Bush, I though he was being blackmailed back then. Who knows, maybe I had it right.
It certainly looks like the world is heading for a major war. I do not see how the Syrian and Iranian situation can be put off much longer. I have read a report that we now have hundreds of Marines on the ground in Jordan near the Syrian border to do the ground work for a no fly zone. I do not know if that report is true, it is hard to find reliable sources on the Internet.
Thanks to Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia, Assad of Syria is now winning the war against the resistance. This is infuriating the Sunnis led by Saudi Arabia and Turkey. I think they will soon pressure NATO into establishing a no fly zone in Syria. Then all bets are off to where that will lead. Syria is not Libya.
On one side there is Assad, Hezbollah, and Iran all being supported by Russia. Then on the other side we see the Sunni’s (with their terrorist factions) and NATO aligning against this alliance of Shia Muslims. Israel is now neutral but any NATO effort will bring Israel into their camp. If Assad gets the upper hand in this war because of Hezbollah and Iranian backing they will make sure that Israel pays a price for striking targets in Syria. That would bring a response from Israel and that probably would lead to a regional war.
Violence is also rising in Iraq again between the Shia and the Sunni and a civil war there is becoming likely. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others are Sunni and they will oppose any movement of Iran to take over Syria. This whole thing very much looks like it will turn into a regional or world war between the Sunni and the Shia with Russia supporting the Shia and the U.S. and NATO supporting the Saudi Arabian funded Sunni. Any such war is not going to be limited to this area, it is going to bring terrorist violence to many nations of the world.
The foreign policies of the West with its appeasement against the Jihadists of Islam is doomed to fail. A number of regional powers are going to try to take over this oil rich area of the world within this generation and they all will have their own brief day in the sun. The exact order of these wars is debatable but the Shia Sunni war looks to be first war on the horizon.
If the U.S. gets in a war or a proxy war with Iran, N Korea, China or Russia I think an EMP and cyber attack could very well bring down our electrical grid. You might want to think about moving close to a local non nuclear power station if that is possible. Hydro would be ideal. Most of Texas is on a separate grid, you might consider living there.
Even apart from the EMP and cyber threat, the U.S. national grid is aging and is in pretty bad shape. If nothing is done to improve the grid, blackouts will become increasingly common in some areas. The needed improvements in our grid infrastructure will not happen if we continue on the road to higher energy prices and a declining economy.
There is nothing much new to say about the economy, it is a phony recovery. It will only last until the Fed stops printing money or others demand more dollars for the same amount of goods. Once prices start rising and interest rates start rising the jig is up and then Katie-bar-the-door.
Pope Francis has been in the religious news with his claims of what he thinks the good works of even atheists might mean. I think this pope is a likeable guy but when he speaks he confuses theologians both in an out of the Catholic Church. I don’t know where that will lead but I guess we will not have to wait long to find out.
