Victor David Hanson...

It Can Happen Here—May 19th, 2013...

Shortly before the second-term inauguration of Barack Obama this January, I wrote the following of my worries over the Obama way of doing business:

"...Indeed, the more emphatically he adds “make no mistake about it,” “let me be perfectly clear,” “I’m not kidding,” or the ubiquitous “me,” “my,” and “I” to each new assertion, the more a growing number of people will come to know from the past that what follows simply is not true. Does this matter? Yes, because when the reckoning comes, it will be seen as logical rather than aberrant — and long overdue.

I ended my prognostications with the warning, “And so a reckoning is on the near horizon. Let us pray it does not take us all down with his administration.”

Four months later, it almost has.


In January, of course, we all knew that Obama had misled the country on the nature of the disaster that is called Obamacare—a bill forced through on an entirely partisan basis through extraordinary legislative pay-offs and exemptions.

The author of the bill, Sen. Max Baucus, dubbed it a “train wreck”; the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (who helped ram through the bill), claimed that we needed to pass the bill to find out what is in it.

Obama’s first-term methodology was in line with his history of dissimulation—promising to accept public campaign financing before becoming the first presidential candidate in the general election to refuse it; demagoguing the Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism protocols as a senator as useless or unlawful (e.g., Guantanamo as “al-Qaeda’s chief recruiting tool”), only to embrace or expand them all once he became president; and stoking racial animosity by weighing in during the Professor Henry Louis Gates psychodrama and the Trayvon Martin murder case, and asking La Raza activists “to punish our enemies.” The president had a strange habit, like a moth to a flame, of demagoguing the wealthy as toxic (spread the wealth, pay your fair share, fat cat, you didn’t build that, etc.), while being attracted to the very lifestyle that he damns, a sort of Martha’s Vineyard community organizer. Sometime in 2009, $250,000 in annual income became the dividing line between “us” and “them.” When we hear the president remind us that he is not a tyrant or monarch, then we assume he laments that fact; “make no mistake about it” ensures that you should believe that the president is not being “perfectly clear.”

Of course, in January I did not know yet that the IRS had targeted conservatives...

I did not think that the administration would be so haughty to go after the Associated Press and monitor their official and private communications, especially given that the source of most national security leaks par excellence was the Obama White House itself...

[snip]

Meanwhile, in Machiavellian fashion the Obama administration had divulged classified information about the Stuxnet virus, the bin Laden raid, and the drone targeting

While we all knew that a filmmaker did not prompt a riot that just happened to kill four Americans, we did not, until the testimony of State Department officials and the published communications of White House, CIA, and State Department staffers, appreciate just how far the administration would go to further a false narrative.

[snip]

Yet in some sense, Obama won. The IRS, AP, and Benghazi scandals were all adroitly kept under wraps for months before the 2012 election,...and the press echoed a “how dare you” when anyone questioned the frightening state of events.

[snip]

The world is turned upside down, and whether the government taps, politicizes, or lies is not so important if it subsidizes the 47%.

Does anyone care that five departments of government are either breaking the law or lying or both...

• State [Benghazi],
• Defense [the harassment issues],
• Justice [monitoring of phone lines],
• Treasury [corruption at the IRS],
• Health and Human Services [shaking down companies to pay for PR for Obamacare])?


[snip]

Comments:

• The truth brings momentary, but necessary, solace. Thank you, again, Dr. Hanson.

• There's more than ample evidence to recall the last Presidential election due to all the criminal activity, and dethrone Barrack Obama/Gosnell/Hitler.

• America has the largest criminal organization to ever infest American government.

• The army of court jesters for Barrack Obama/Gosnell/Hitler;
Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Axelrod, Emanuel, Ploufe, Pheiffer, Carney, Rice, Schumer, Wasserman Schultz, etc, etc, ad nauseum. And The Don himself, Eric Holder.

[snip]

• The corruption has filtered down to local government, and there is so much corruption, it is overwhelming the system...

• Where will the Savior of the American People come from?

• Devastating, succinct and very depressing. The only practical question now is indeed whether the Republicans (the real ones) have the 'stones' to remove this dictatorial, arbitrary, Constitution-stomping man and his Administration from power.

[snip]

• "I am not a dictator".

Because...a dictator would seize the press and have them bury any unfavorable story and write puff pieces about him.

Because...a dictator would send the government's agents to harass, intimidate and punish anyone who dared to write a negative story.

Because...a dictator would send the government's revenue agents to harass, intimidate and investigate citizen's tax filings.

Because...a dictator would declare war on a country without seeking approval of his government.

Because...a dictator would attempt to seize the arms with which the citizenry might protect itself.

Because...a dictator would run guns to drug cartels and then have his Department of Justice cover up the fact, eventually granting executive privilege to cease the inquiry.

Because...a dictator would let his own ambassador die a bloody and brutal death in order to callously gauge his own reelection impact.

Because...a dictator would paint Catholics, Jews, Mormons and Christians as "terrorist threats" in order to have his army trained to treat them with suspicion and disdain.

Because...a dictator would pass a massive "redistribution" hoax having his lawyers call it a tax, while he simultaneously denies it is any such thing.

Because...a dictator would suggest that he could drop a missile on the head of any citizen he damn well pleases.

Because...a dictator can force the Catholic religion to reject their own tenets of their faith in order to compel compliance with his legislative fiats.

Because...a dictator can shut off access to the residence he occupies under the phony guise of "sequestration" costs.

• Malevolence often comes disguised as benevolence. Totalitarianism often comes disguised as populism. Leftism comes disguised as liberalism. And tyranny...doesn't appear at your doorstep suddenly. You invite it in with open arms, until one day you realize what you have done.

And, by then...it is too late.

[snip]

• They have executed a tyrannical takeover of government. What's going to stop them?

[snip]

• The conditions necessary for the existence of a Catastrophe may be long in the making, but once made, and the quickening takes hold, vanishingly brief is the moment in which it can be stayed.

[snip]

• After all of this catalogue of bulls**t from Obama & co. ........why, oh why, can't enough Democrats in the Senate be persuaded to agree to a Motion of Impeachment?

[snip]

• They're daily losing whatever shreds of Honor [...is that too old fashioned a word to be used here?] ....they still have.

Soon there will be none.

[snip]

• Why are the actions of those IRS agents to be punished? Because it offends the Dear Leader. It doesn't matter what the law says, because the LAW IS IRRELEVANT. The Dear Leader feels what happened was wrong, so someone will be punished. The true thinking of the administration came from Dan Pfeiffer's mouth on Sunday, "The law is irrelevant."

"[On talk-radio] Judge Napolitano told Jamie that if Obama knew his IRS was targeting conservatives during the 2012 election, and did nothing, it is an impeachable offense."

It must really be frustrating to know that you're not moving the needle at all. The last time the Republicans went after a president, Bill Clinton, he left office with a 66% popularity rating. So much for Monicagate!! The right wingers should listen to Newt, and don't overreach! afro

That's right! Bill Clinton was in much more hot water than Obama. The right wing blockheads are not even remotely close to impeachment with Obama!

Clinton was a far better president than Obama-once he learned he needed to go to the middle and agree with the Repubs.

Hillary would have been by far the wisest choice for our country but extreme leftists thought it was time to send the world a message rather than pick who was best for the United States of America.

But I am afraid Hillary is almost as far left as Obama. I hope she doesn't fool people like Obama did.

No way we would have been more divided then now. Let's say the left is correct and many Americans didn't want to have a black leader. It makes you wonder how many people would have been more receptive of compromise if the best candidate for our country was their nomination. If you knew you were going to lose that percentage of votes plus the votes that were going to go against you anyways, it seams to me they could have made a better choice for President. Now they might mess it up for Clinton in 16.

You don't get it! This country is changing, as the majority is quickly becoming the minority. The minority overwhelmingly voted for Obama, and they will for Clinton. The country is on the healing path as the economy is getting better, and the minority contributes mightily to the economy. You still don't get it!
