October Surprise redux?

July 13, 2010 The October Surprise Is Coming By Pamela Geller

The October Surprise. We all know it's coming. In what shape, idea, form -- who's to say? Evil always surprises. Its goals are constant, the ultimate objective never changes, but inevitably it manifests itself as the savior of the day, the savior of man. The 2008 Democrat October Surprise that ushered in the first hardcore radical post-American president in American history was the "economic collapse." Oh yes, that was a beaut.

The time before that, the moochers and the looters tried to fake Bush documents -- except that the conservative blogosphere caught them red-handed, so they missed their mark.

But the party of haters, infiltrators, anti-capitalists, the party that is anti-freedom and anti-individual rights, is going to have to pull off something really catastrophic to stay in power this November. And they will, because it is abundantly clear now that they despise the premise of America and they mean to replace it with statism, the source of untold, incomprehensible human misery for centuries.

Ayn Rand wrote of statism that

a statist system -- whether of a communist, fascist, Nazi, socialist or 'welfare' type -- is based on the ... government's unlimited power, which means: on the rule of brute force. ... Under statism, the government is not a policeman, but a legalized criminal that holds the power to use physical force in any manner and for any purpose it pleases against legally disarmed, defenseless victims.

With chilling prescience, Rand said, "The basic principle and the ultimate results of all statist doctrines are the same: dictatorship and destruction. The rest is only a matter of time."

Only a matter of time.

We have a long and terrible fight in front of us. The fight is as big as the idea, the foundation, the being of this great nation, the fight for America. Yes, it's as big as all that, and the enemy is ruthless, unscrupulous, and evil -- and willing to do whatever it takes to assume absolute control. They build nothing, produce nothing, create nothing, invent nothing. They steal. They demand. They demoralize. They are destroyers.

What will October's Surprise be? Political analyst Jack Wheeler has an idea. "A Second Great Depression," he says, "is the Democrat Party's path to power":

Our country is faced with an impending economic catastrophe, a Second Great Depression. It is being brought about on purpose by a political party that cares only for keeping and expanding its power, and looks upon prosperity as a threat to that power.

You think the Democrats aren't really that bad? Think again. Wheeler points out that they're "now being threatened with being thrown out of power." And what did they do when faced with a loss of power the last time? "If that party is evil enough and fascist enough to cause an economic catastrophe," Wheeler says, "it is certainly evil and fascist enough to cause a physical catastrophe, an Ultimate October Surprise, that will frighten and enrage voters enough to preserve its power in November."

Wheeler speculates that this could take the form of "another 9/11, a massively horrific terrorist attack, perhaps even nuclear." Or it could involve Obama's obvious and gross mishandling of the Gulf oil crisis, the full extent of which is (of course) being covered up in the lapdog media. And whom would the Democrats blame for whatever crisis they trump up? Whom else? The attack will be used, Wheeler suggests, "to raise suspicion about the dangerous Tea Party people and anyone who is 'anti-government,' enough for people to rally around their Zero-led government in fear and confusion." And it will ultimately provide "further rationales for emergency government powers."

Could this really happen? Well, we know there have been October Surprises in the past, and each election ups the ante. We have to make sure this doesn't happen. We are Americans. We are free people. We must resist. As one reader of my website,, wrote to me, "the political tools of truth, exposure, ridicule, disparagement, impeachment, criminal prosecution, and politically-incorrect anger must be added to our arsenal of peaceful weapons against tyranny. ... We must make history by living our freedom, or surely we will die."

And we have seen the Democratic Party decimate our health care system, banking industry, and automobile sector, and introduce sharia (Islamic) finance into the public sector. They are capable of anything.

Yes. And there is some comfort to be found in the fact that decent, rational men, statesmen, exist and speak the truth. They represent our last hope, a vestige of reason and sanity in this era of the modern barbarian. These are the men who need to take the reins of their respective nations.

I couldn't find this in a search, so my apologies if this is a multi-post. And additional apologies for my lack of HTML. (Never learned the language.) This essay, IMHO, was just too good to pass up. Bolton 2012?

As expected, the only realistic “surprise” is that the MSM will BS their way that the economy has improved in order to protect the kenyan.

“an Ultimate October Surprise, that will frighten and enrage voters enough to preserve its power in November.”

...this makes no sense to me. Unless the “surprise” is one that dems are able to blame on Republicans and that can’t happen because they have little to no power. Everyone seems to be underestimating the power of the “Tea Party” and the “silent majority” (which I’m sick of hearing about). Conservatives work and they work hard. Most don’t wear their political persuasion on their sleeve. Most don’t have or make time for polls. We vote.

well it won’t be a nuclear 9-11...if Barry is too incompetent to deal with a little oil in the Gulf such a thing would result in no country being left for him to be Dictator over (it could happen but it would not be a Troofer “inside job” pulled to prop up Obama)

Lets just hope the democrats don't martyr ZERO..
Martyr him with a supposed right wing nutcase..
Martyr him and then MArtinLutherKing-ize him...

Would be pure malicious genius..
Enraging all of the Left and the Rinos..
And capturing the Fox democrats.. i.e. Smith,Bair,Cavuto, and Greta..

Fox would become unwatchable and the Socialist revolution would continue on crack..

Maybe the candidates should tell people to be on the lookout for such a surprise.

More likely, the Octo-surprise will be in September or late August, in the form of manna: ‘bam will dump the remaining stimulus money.

Hopefully they’ll be late.

One might recall the Cuban Missile Crisis, which was resolved less than a week and a half before Election Day. In the election, Democrats did far better than they had expected to do, and many Republicans complained that the election had been “Cubanized.”

“...legalized criminal...”

Exactly, the gangsta prez, and his mob are nothing but a criminal syndicate, only they aren’t loyal to America like the mobsters of old. These scumbags are loyal to anti-American, anti-liberty, recycled socialist ideas of Marx, Hitler, Mugabe, Castro, Chavez, and every other pile-of-crap, leftist reptile to slither out of Hell. ...The Washington thugs are joined by a complicit media, acting as legal representation and public relations. Wake up America.

Mark my words, the October suprise will be Mr. Steele resigning as the head of the RNC saying he is leaving because of racism within the republican party.

Check my Freeper Page up near the top. Look for Gerald Celete. Hint: That light you see at the end of tunnel is a speeding train.

Please check that page frequently. Now that I have recovered from a health crisis that lasted months and months -- I'm planning to update that info more often. Cheers !

I forecast a “False Flag” attack by a Tim McVeigh type.

Oklahoma City was very convenient for Clinton.

A racist component would add fuel to the fire.

I look for the kenyan usurper to “massage” the numbers to lie about unemployment and the economy - more than they have been doing. The MSM will help him trumpet the lies.

OKC was clearly a globalist black ops job. A wealth of info has surfaced conclusively proving that, imho.

Next time, I suspect the Jihadi’s will be using nukes or some such.
