Note From Senior Management: In an opinion piece in todays New York Times, columnist Ross Douthat articulates the case that Breitbart News has reported on in regards to the attack on American sovereignty and the president's increasing lawlessness that is leading the country to a Constitutional crisis later this summer.
Something rather dangerous is happening in American politics right now, all the more so for being taken for granted by many of the people watching it unfold.
I do not mean the confusion of House Republicans, or the general gridlock in Congress, which are impeding legislative action on the child migrant crisis (among other matters). Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, indeed severe ones, but theyre happening within the context of a constitutional system that allows for and can survive congressional inaction.
What is different more cynical and more destructive is the course President Obama is pursuing in response.
Over the last month, the Obama political apparatus a close aide to the president, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the independent voices at MSNBC has been talking nonstop about an alleged Republican plan to impeach the president. John Boehners symbolic lawsuit against the White House has been dubbed impeachment lite, Sarah Palins pleas for attention have been creatively reinterpreted as G.O.P. marching orders, and an entire apocalyptic fund-raising campaign has been built around the specter of a House impeachment vote....

If Congress stands idly by, while Elmer Fudd and Joe Insurance Policy commit treason; they will deservedly be disbanded. The regime will overthrow the Constitution and impose HIS law.
When civil war starts, he will accomplish his goal of breaking up the country. When Congress is disbanded, he will accomplish his goal of breaking up the country.
There is a third choice - massive disobedience. We’ve had a small taste of that in CT and NY with the gun confiscation laws.
The Rubicon preceded the Ides of March
Both led to the dissolution of the Republic
Yes, and you’d also had to believe that it was just a coincidence that Oswald had his “Fair Play for Cuba” office in the same building as the FBI in New Orleans and there is a film with almost an nor interview of him.
Just for fun, read Oswald’s discussion of his time in Russia, thoughtfully included as an enclosure to the Warren Report. It’s well-written and funny and anything but pro-communist. My guess? He was a government informant since left the Marine Corps.
And that his sudden cancer was just a coincidence.
Any idea why?
What I consider the absolute, most horrifically terrifying is the sudden, in-your-face march to another holocaust.
