Obama's Third Term?

Are global forces in play to derail the US Presidential Conventions and set Obama up for a third term?  With talk of a brokered GOP convention and pending indictments for Hillary, this is a very real possibility.  Think of it, the establishment GOP orchestrate a coup and deny Trump or Cruz the nomination instead rolling out Mitt, or Jeb, or McCain... the GOP splits and splinters across the country.  Simultaneously, the FBI indicts Hillary and leaves the Democrats at a split convention... Throw in an Iran or a N Korea Nuclear attack and you've got all the makings for Obama to circumvent the constitution (again) and stay in power.

Conversely,  we could all be Raptured - most of the GOP would be gone, Hillary is still indicted and Obama takes the chaotic world and stays in power.

He's already indicated that he wants to run the UN after the Presidency...

We know that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places.  We also know what is foretold and what is to come.  Maranantha, Friends.

Not Falling For It This Time

Abigail and Dolley readers I have been an intense observer of politics and the media for many years - no more so than when I became a Tea Party Member in the early months of 2009.   Plugged into the 24 hour news cycle for four years was illuminating, because I understood what was going on I could easily pick out spin and lies when they were spoken from a podium or a news desk.  Thus, I can no longer be led about by my nose.

My friends over at the Patriot's Business Alliance, hypothesized that the 2012 election would be the last time major media controlled the narrative.  They were right.

George and I were discussing this morning how people are not buying the story the media is selling.  His theory is that the electorate have watched their candidates be skewered by false narratives spun by the establishment and the media.  As supporters of these candidates they know the truth and not the sound bites and have been infuriated by the personal destruction of men and women they supported.

Think about the last Presidential election, were you a Michelle Bachmann fan?  How did you feel about her treatment?  How about the Newsweek cover that made her look like a lunatic or a Iowa State Fair picture that made her look like a porn star?  Her campaign was scuttled while in its infancy.

Then let us talk about Herman Cain... A strong man of integrity and intelligence.  Surges in the polls in October with smart ideas about revamping Social Security, creating jobs, and turning the country from a left wing course that had us reeling.  Well, since he was a Black Man, it was easy to create a sex starved predator image.  Vindicated well after the fact, a good man's reputation and his family were drug through the mud on the way to anointing the impotent establishment candidate Mitt Romney.   

A Good Man Drug Through the Mud
Finally, let's look at Newt Gingrich.  Long term readers will remember that Newt was my candidate of choice.  I wrote in detail about my thought process, my support of Newt, and in the end the utter annihilation of an excellent candidate.  The destruction came from all sides, Romney's carpet bomb negative barrage of false campaign ads, the Fox News hatred of him and negative coverage, and then finally what was a death blow at the time, Beck's character assassination.  Had Newt become President, the country and the world would be a vastly better and different place.

Destroyed by Negative Ads
This story is repeated over and over again - Sarah Palin and Dan Quayle were absolutely destroyed by the press and the elite.  Even folks like ultra liberal Howard Dean have seen momentum destroyed by a single incident, gaffe or not, that sunk their careers and bids for public office.

The infamous Dean Scream
The cumulative effect on the public is disillusionment and resentment.  How many people have watched their candidate of choice destroyed?  With the rise of the internet, alternative media, and cell phone video cameras discerning individuals can do their own research.  When a story comes out, they can find the source material and review it for themselves - thus, the ability of pundits and SuperPacs to set the narrative are greatly diminished, to their utter horror, I might add.

They are desperate!  The Huffington Post broke a story this week where GOP elite and tech ultra rich met in secret to decide how to stop the rise and nomination of Donald Trump.  Fifty four private jets... they will lie, cheat, and steal to insure they stay in power.  The illusion of political parties, is just that, an illusion.  What we see today is a ruling class, an elite, who will do or say anything as long as the cash cow of unfettered government spending continues to line their pockets.

The thing is, the American People aren't falling for it this time.

Injustice in America: How Donald Trump is Tapping into our Frustration

Injustice - such an ugly word, such an Un-American concept; is that at the core of the Trump appeal?

I have enjoyed watching the media and pundits turn themselves inside out to explain the Trump phenomena.  Most have interesting and valid points, here are some snippets that you might find compelling:

Donald Trump, Conservatives, and the Obama Effect - David Fowler writes:

I think some social conservatives have despaired of “values candidates” actually doing anything in support of their values. They have not lost their concern for the social values that drove them in the past to reluctantly support the Doles, McCains, and Romneys, and the do-nothing-but-make-excuses-for-inaction social conservatives who have been elected to Congress, but they have decided that supporting such conservatives isn’t going to result in those values being reflected in public policy.

So, at this point, I think some social conservatives see no reason to continue supporting candidates who run on those values simply because they espouse those values. They believe history has shown them it won’t matter, so they are voting for someone who talks tough on the other issues they care about. (Read more)

Trump and the Rise of the Unprotected - Peggy Noonan writes:

Because they are protected they feel they can do pretty much anything, impose any reality. They’re insulated from many of the effects of their own decisions. (Read more)

Understanding Trump: Why Peggy Noonan Is Also Blind - Steve Denning writes:

Pursuit of this goal by public corporations has led to the pervasive extraction of short-term value for the protected class—those with assets—at the expense of the unprotected—those with few assets. It is in reality the epitome of institutionalized selfishness—the specific mechanism by which the protected class screws the unprotected class. (Read more)

Hillary Clinton's Headquarters
Most Americans do not believe in class warfare but we do believe in equality and we do believe in justice; this last few decades we have been shown to be suckers and that is where Trump taps into.  His rhetoric appeals to those who are seeking justice, he promises to stand up, he promises justice.

Founder, John Adams said that our Republic is a government of laws, not of men.  That is foundational to the American Spirit.  The reality is far from the dream.  For the last 16 years, Americans have watched the elite commit crimes for which they go unpunished, it is festering in every area of life.  Black Lives Matters, Occupy Wall Street, the Tea Party are all outgrowths of the loss equal application of the law.

Equal Justice
Our bedrock, our foundation, is on equality - on laws that apply to everyone.  We have seen over and over again injustice, consider for a minute:

Voter intimidation by Black Panthers at polling places in 2012 not prosecuted
Planned Parenthood not indicted or punished for selling human parts but videographer indicted
Hillary Clinton - Benghazi, travelgate, emails, ect ect ect ect
Fast and Furious - Gun Walking into Mexico designed to undermine the 2nd amendment
The Treason of complete abdication of border enforcement (read more)
Obamacare - when every effort, every effort to stop it was ignored (Scott Brown, GOP Congress in 2010, 2012, 2014)
Christian Intimidation and Attack from bakers to bathrooms
Benghazi - no FBI investigation on the ground, no indictments, no answers, no justice
Obama's Lawlessness
Bush's NeoCon Wars that have crippled the Middle East and maimed the minds, bodies, and families of thousands of servicemen and civilians
Christian Genocide

This is just a sampling of injustice, add high profile cases where the bad guy gets away with murder and you have a boiling cauldron of frustration, anger, and fear.  The above examples are US centric but western Europe is also seething from unrestrained Muslim refugees and all that goes with it.  Western nations are about to explode.  In the eyes of many, Trump is the non-violent explosion we've been looking for.  A brash brawler who doesn't take sh*t from anybody.
