Baton Rouge. Dallas. Orlando and Ferguson. Bathroom confusion. End runs around Congress. Rules for thee but not for me – or my cronies. A southern border that leaks like a sieve. The JayVee team. Benghazi.
These and more are all legacies of the Obama Administration, so much so that some write off President Pants on Fire as a moron. An inept bungler who doesn’t know his head from a sand wedge. Be careful with that.
Mr. Brooks Brothers may look like an empty suit. He’s not. And he’s not stupid, either. In fact, a good argument can be made that the Redistributor-in-Thief knows exactly what he’s about.
The kind of chaos, confusion and government dependency that have popped up like overnight mushrooms under the Obama Regime are no accident. Or the result of galactically inept blundering. They’re perfect – if you understand the apparent end game. Start with Saul Alinksy (note Rule #3). Then tip-toe over to:
Indeed, Obama and his ilk seem to thrive on either creating or sustaining chaos, both economic and social. So here’s the “$64,000 question”: Why?
Short answer: They Need The Chaos.
Obama needs chaos so more government can rush in to “save us.” Remember Rahm never-let-a-crisis-go-to-waste Emanuel? More crises means more opportunities to expand government and executive powers. That’s the real “change” Obama offers.
A brief refresher: Remember Valerie Jarrett’s 2008 comment that Obama needs to “begin to rule” on day one? Dissonance much? In truth, Jarrett may have tipped her hand more than she intended. (Newsflash: This is America. We don’t have “rulers” here. Any politician lookin’ for that kind of gig, find another country. I hear Cuba’s interviewing candidates…)
Which leads us to another question: Why has Obama pursued and promoted policies to keep as many Americans as dependent on government as possible, ensure as much social unrest as possible, divide America as much as possible, and thus advance the Progressive version of “change” – e.g., an Alinsky/Cloward-Piven-style utopia?
What’s going on here?
Step back for a minute. Check out Cloward-Piven 2.0. From that perspective, the last thing President Pants on Fire wants is a stable economy. An uptick in full-time private sector hiring that lasts more than five minutes. Social stability. Respect for authority or the rule of law. Writes Jeanne DeAngelis in The American Thinker in 2011:
As Obama pushes and prods the US economy and instigates social unrest, it could be that he believes a Cloward-Piven-style utopia resides just beyond the horizon — a progressive panacea where an election-free, classless society, thankful for a simple crust of bread, looks to Barack Obama to keep the peace by remaining in power indefinitely.
Therefore, unless all of America, regardless of class or political persuasion, pays attention to the potential for a bleak future that lies ahead and realizes the President’s non-plan could be itself an actual calculated plan, the resulting consequences will affect everyone, as Barack Obama transforms a once great nation into Cloward and Piven’s idea of paradise.
Even though DeAngelis’s article was written five years ago, it still rings true today. Especially in light of the current War on Police and the upticks in violence and unrest that seem to be hitting city streets all across the Fruited Plain.
Well, where there’s smoke, there’s Brooks Brothers. While you’re gagging on another bus load of Obamanian smoke, do something besides grab a fire extinguisher. Grab several. And get to the polls in the next election.
Meanwhile, remember that in a civilized society, True Liberty isn’t lawlessness, anarchy, or rudderless mush. It has spine. Core convictions. Is grounded in Law, Morality, and Justice. True Liberty includes responsibility and accountability. Has a moral compass based on the Ten Commandments.
Ultimately, tyranny does not end where some party platform or political pundit says it does, but where faith begins.
Remember in November.
