Obama to Seize Power?

March 14, 2013 at 8:16 AM 6 comments

With respect to our government, some people tend to believe in conspiracy theories for a couple of reasons:

  1. the theories are believable to a point, in the absence of any factual rebuttal to the opposite
  2. because of the refusal to explain governmental actions, the conspiracy theory may take on a life of its own

Whether it’s the JFK assassination, UFO’s, 9/11, Obama’s birth nation, Sandy Hook, or something else entirely, the reason these conspiracy theories become believable for many is because there are usually more questions than answers and at least some of the questions are valid, or appear valid.

Did Oswald kill JFK all by himself?  Was there no one else involved?  The biggest question is why was JFK killed in the first place?

Has our government been hiding information regarding aliens and UFO’s?  If so, why?

Did our own federal government play any part in the original 9/11 event, either by actually directing it or by not stopping it?  If so, what was the purpose?  To get us into a war with Iraq?  If so, they are guilty of murdering nearly 3,000 people on American soil.

Was Sandy Hook a created event so that our government could clamp down on gun rights in this nation?  If so, our government is guilty of murdering children and several adults to make a point.

Regardless of what you may think about any of the above scenarios or countless ones that I did not mention, there are people who adamantly believe that all of them represent conspiracy theories in which our government played a part in duping Americans in order to do something that it should not have done.  Each of the above situations contains more questions than answers (at least for some people) and therefore, their belief is that the government is guilty.

I have weighed in on several of the above situations myself and it is simply difficult at best to come to any informed conclusion.  Yes, there are questions – some of them serious – but unless and until facts actually come to light that prove one way or another that our government was involved, we cannot rightly conclude that this is the case.

This is the way conspiracy theories go.  People are either convinced or not based on the conclusions they draw from the information available to them.

Such is the case with respect to the title of this article.  I came across a brief article in which the author essentially stated his real concern that Obama is getting ready to seize power.  In the article, the author lists several reasons why he believes that this is going to occur.

He first references the number of executive orders issued by Obama as well as the type of executive orders.  Some of these orders deal with “peacetime Martial Law, he has control of drone strikes against American citizens on US soil, and he signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law.” [1]

He also references the fact that the DHS has purchased billions of rounds of hollow point ammo and 7,000 “assault” rifles that they refer to as “defensive weapons.”

The NRA has addressed the issue of large ammo purchases by our government and, I believe, more than adequately responded to concerns. [2]  In their article, they discuss the subject of hollow-point ammo as well.  If you are concerned about these purchases by our government, then please avail yourself of the article by the NRA.  They see no difficulty in what our government is doing here.

Getting back to the article, the author points out something I was not aware of that has to do with Obama’s alleged super-secret construction in the White House and no one knows what it’s about.  My understanding is that the White House itself is an extremely secure facility with an underground bunker and command center.  I cannot imagine that anything more secure is being done to the White House, but of course, I could be wrong.  At this point, no one knows for certain what was being done with this new construction.

We are also well aware of the fact that DHS just recently released about 24,000 illegal (and criminal) aliens back into society.  They did this – they say – because of sequestration, but did not deport them.  They simply released them back into American society.

One thing the author did not mention was that the DHS also just recently put in an order for roughly 2,500 light tanks.  We do not know what those are for and because of that, people’s minds go crazy with ideas.

The author also speaks of a path to citizenship where illegal aliens could serve in the Peace Corps, or the military for two years and would then be granted citizenship.

After all of this, the author comes to this conclusion:

Do you have the picture yet? My theory is that Obama is building his civilian army against Americans using illegal aliens, supplied with arms from DHS, with a promise of full citizenship in the NEW USA. After his opposition is either eliminated or imprisoned, of course. The White House will become the new Presidential Palace. This is the only plausible reason for these actions that I can come up with. I sincerely hope that I am wrong. As always, stay safe and be aware of your surroundings. [3]

My question is twofold:  why and how?

Are we to believe that Obama would be stupid enough to simply declare himself King of America as he rolls out a civilian “military” force complete with tanks that would give him the opportunity to declare Martial Law?

Look, I will admit there is a lot of this type of article going around and I have given thought to it myself.  However, I cannot help but wonder whether or not the powers that be want us to think in these terms to keep us on edge.  They gain a lot by creating situations where we are always looking over our collective shoulders.

Okay, so the DHS has just released 24,000 illegal criminal aliens.  According to this author, the same DHS is going to hand over guns to these individuals and ask them to “take down America” and once they accomplish that task, they will be given full citizenship in the “new” America.

Question:  why would any criminal do the bidding of the American government just so that they can claim the “reward” of becoming a full-fledged citizen of America?  Do they really care that much about becoming “responsible” citizens of a country they don’t like?

Most criminals are not stupid.  They would quickly realize that they are being used to do the dirty work of our government that has turned on its citizens.  What would be the point of becoming a citizen of America after that?

While we’re at it, these criminals would now have guns.  Why would they take orders from anyone?  Why not just do what they want to do?  Some might argue that this would be the plan, to create havoc throughout America so that Martial Law could be declared.

We are talking about 24,000 criminals with guns.  Spread them out over the entire nation and that’s not much of a threat, is it?

Frankly, I think the author has lost his way.  I really don’t trust our government, sadly.  I don’t trust Obama either.  In fact, there are very few politicians on either side of the aisle I trust at all, because I think corruption has become seriously embedded in our government.  This fact makes it extremely difficult for an honest person to remain honest as a politician.

I am far more inclined to think that over the next three to three and a half-years of the second Obama term, this country is simply going to sink further into debt, our unemployment will continue to rise, as will the welfare rolls, and nothing much will happen in Washington that benefits the people who pay the taxes in America.

I mean, not to be disrespectful here, but there is absolutely nothing coming out of the White House that has any substance at all.  All I hear coming from the White House are triple dog dare yas and the blame game.  For days, sequestration was blamed on the GOP by the White House until finally, they admit that yes, sequestration was Obama’s idea.

The self-guided White House tours are canceled (at the PEOPLE’S house), but apparently, there is enough money to hold a huge birthday bash for Mrs. Obama including Beyonce and Adele, in about ten months.  These things are paid for by the taxpayers folks.  Where is the sense of propriety and reality that should be emanating from the White House?  It’s not there.

No, I think that if Mr. Obama has plans of taking America down, he’ll do it the old-fashioned way – through continued pilfering of our treasury, as he has been doing since he took office.  He has given billions away to foreign entities and shows no sign of slowing down.  Yet, he continually cuts aid to our own military.

Colorado has followed suit.  While the Federal government cuts aid to military families, the legislature in Colorado has lowered tuition for illegal aliens so that they can attend college.  I’m scratching my head at this!  So, poor families who are here legally have to pay a higher tuition rate than someone who is here illegally?  How is this at all fair?  Oh well, don’t get me started on that…

Is Obama going to seize power the way the author of the article I’ve referenced says he will?  I really don’t think there is any need, frankly.  Obama already has power and does pretty much whatever he wants to do.

I know he would like to eliminate the 2nd Amendment, but that’s proving difficult.  He has (along with Bush before him) restricted the 4th Amendment (through the TSA at airports and now increasingly, at highway checkpoints inside the United States) and he has also begun to place limits on the 1st Amendment (no one can protest him in his presence – within eye-shot or earshot – when he is out in public).   He uses and misuses the Constitution whenever it suits him and he essentially spends the taxpayer money however he sees fit.

To me, it appears as though he is already “king” of America.  There are few checks and balances that Congress seems willing or able to apply to him. When they try (as in “Fast and Furious” and “Benghazi”), things get mired down so quickly that virtually little to nothing moves.  If Obama could successfully shore up a few things, he would realistically have complete power.

Does he need to unleash a civilian “military” force in order to have complete control through Martial Law?  I think that would do far more harm than good because it would bring out the active patriotism in Americans; something I don’t think Obama is ready to deal with at all.

It would simply not be worth his while to create such an artificial scenario.  He can accomplish far more (if he actually intends on gaining more power) by allowing Americans to think we still have our freedom while he works behind the scenes to curtail, restrict, and remove our rights.

It is clear, like numerous presidents before him (most recently, George W. Bush), things have been in the works to restrict the rights of Americans, which have been somewhat successfully supplanted to a degree.  Wouldn’t it be far better to continue in that mode than an outright coup of the American people?  In spite of all the rhetoric and alleged proof that he is getting ready to violently overthrow America, for me, the thought is just too absurd to consider.

    That’s the word Fred! BALANCE! What happened to it? I heard one say that to fly one must have a right wing and a left wing,LOL!
    Bill Gates is another power monger so he fits right in. As to a 3rd term, I think that would be all it takes to spark the cannon!
    Mr Barry Obama is in this position to bring tribulation to us all.
    Can we bear the test?

      Good words, Lester.

    After having read about islamist training camps in Muslim only communities in Western nations quite some time ago I have wondered if these huge ammo buys were for arming them. Enemies within our nation and without might gladly do Obama’s bidding if he wants to be king but it may just be for the sheer joy of finally bringing down the USA, a dream of marxists world-wide.

    Concerning conspiracies promoted by the right I have thought many times lately that they can demagogue with the best of them!

    A third term? Noooo…..! 😮

    For what it’s worth: I’ve seen tons of videos where President Obama says something like,’I’m not a dictator, I can’t go around congress,but I wish I could’ and the crowd goes NUTS! It won’t be a coup it’ll be giving in to public pressure. Or I could be all wet.

    Maybe in his 3d term it’ll get better. lol

    Chuckling along to heaven,

      And just today, another person – Bill Gates – made the comment that he wished our “system” of government allowed Obama to have more power. You know, this type of stupidity is more evidence that so many do not know WHY the founders created the system they created. It was so that one person (or one branch of government) could not have an unequally distributed amount of power! They really tried to create a system that would be balanced, at least as much as possible.

      3rd Term? You never know… 🙂
