Benghazi. Lois Lerner. “A pen and a phone.” The VA and Shinseki. The Bergdahl swap. Syria. Korea. Egypt. The Ukraine. Iraq. A border that leaks like a sieve. An ‘Obama Doctrine’ that looks like:
A Few ?s
There are one of two possibilities in play here: 1) Either Mr. I’m-not-really-a-president, I-just-play-one-on-a-teleprompter is as competent as a potted plant (which may be an insult to trailing arbutus everywhere), or: 2) He’s not. He’s doing exactly what he said he would.
‘Are You Unpoopular?’ (sic)
Why did Obama’s DOJ sue a sovereign state, Arizona, that had the audacity to take its duty to protect its citizens seriously? Why is the DOJ suing Texas over voting ID laws? Why the half-hearted Obama response to “securing the border”? Why five high-level terrorists for a potential deserter/collaborator? Why Ayres, Alinsky, Van Jones, Bernadette Dorn and “Rev.” Wright? Why shove a massively unpopular Obamacare down our throats?
Obama seems to thrive on either creating or sustaining chaos, both economic and social. So here’s the “$64,000 question”: Why?
Short answer: He Needs Chaos.
Obama needs chaos so more government can rush in to “save us.” Remember Rahn never-let-a-crisis-go-to-waste Emanuel? More crises = more opportunities to expand government and executive powers. That’s the real “change” Obama offers. Remember:
Remember Valerie Jarrett’s comment about Obama being ready to “rule” on Day 1? She 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: is Obama pursuing and promoting such policies to keep as many Americans dependent on government as possible, ensure as much social unrest as possible, and thus further the advancement of his “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 Boy Wonder Barry seems to want is a stable economy, an uptick in full-time hiring that lasts more than five minutes, or social stability. 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.
Okay. So, where’s Ethel? Oh, wait:
