Is it ISIS?
Is it, as Barack Obama seriously suggests, “climate change”?
Is it Russia?His conclusion?:
Is it the potential for an electro-magnetic pulse that could take down the nation’s electrical grid and fry the circuit boards we depend on for virtually everything in this high-tech, interdependent society, resulting in the deaths of potentially hundreds of millions of Americans?
Is it China?
Is it the unwillingness of the Washington political establishment to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws?
Is it the potential for attack by rogue nations or other terrorist organizations?
Is it massive civil disorder?
Is it the way Americans have lost control of their government?
I contend, and have for many years, that making Obama the number one enemy and maintaining the focus on what he is doing, or not doing, is distracting us from much bigger issues.The No. 1 threat to America’s national security has a name. It’s a person. It’s the defacto president of the United States at least until Jan. 20, 2017 – more than a year from now. The No. 1 enemy of this great experiment in self-governance and limited government under the rule of law and through the will of the people is none other than the man in the White House – Barack Obama. read the rest
Obama is a sock puppet. People who are much more powerful than him have their hands jammed firmly up his backside, making his mouth open and close, so that their words spill forth. It is why he always uses a teleprompter. It's quite obvious on the few occasions when his teleprompter is removed, or when he does an actual interview, that he is far from bright. Obama is incapable of manufacturing a cogent thought.
Of course, this begs the question, "Who is in charge and what is their goal?" People who are way more connected than I am have been asking that question for quite some time.
On November 10th, The Rutherford Institute posted The Deep State: The un-elected Shadow Government Is Here to Stay by John W. Whitehead. It is a sobering insight that will answer the many questions any thinking American has about the state of western civilization.
America’s next president will inherit more than a bitterly divided nation teetering on the brink of financial catastrophe when he or she assumes office. He will also inherit a shadow government, one that is fully operational and staffed by un-elected officials who are, in essence, running the country.
To be precise, however, the future president will actually inherit not one, but two shadow governments.
The first shadow government, referred to as COG or continuity of government, is made up of un-elected individuals who have been appointed to run the government in the event of a “catastrophe".
Is Mr. Whitehead right? Probably. But before you haul out the tin foil, I also don't believe that the eventual goal of a one-world type scenario is possible. What we're seeing are lots of random occurrences that certain factions of the different governments are using to their full advantage.The second shadow government, referred to as the Deep State, is comprised of un-elected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes right now.
Are some of these distractions orchestrated by the Deep State? Most assuredly. Mr. Whitehead points out how this will work;
The first shadow government, COG, is a phantom menace waiting for the right circumstances—a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, an economic meltdown—to bring it out of the shadows, where it operates even now. When and if COG takes over, the police state will transition to martial law.
Yet as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it is the second shadow government, the Deep State, which poses the greater threat to our freedoms. This permanent, corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy is unaffected by elections, unaltered by populist movements, and beyond the reach of the law.Look how fast Hollende called in the military and imposed martial law in France. Since when do you need the military to catch eight or nine people? And then he turns around to welcome another 30K or so more Muslims into France. Does that make sense?
Today, at American Thinker, Ed Lasky posted Obama Doesn't Really Like People, and while well written and most likely true, it still misses the point. Obama being a malignant narcissist or even a sociopath places all the emphasis on a person who holds no real power. He does what he is told to do. His narcissism allows a situation where he can be manipulated very easily by those who are pulling the strings and understand his pathologies. While Obama play acts at being in control, those who are much smarter are the ones really in control.
There are signs of his running amuck and becoming harder to control. It was evident when in Madrid he made some very inflammatory statements:
“Apparently they [Republicans] are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America. At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”And in the Philippines he compared the Muslim invasion as being just like tourists:
I find it hard to believe his handlers think either of these statement are good verbal optics, and can't imagine them being loaded into his teleprompter.“The idea that somehow they pose a more significant threat than all the tourists who pour into the United States every single day just doesn’t jive with reality,” Obama said during an appearance in the Philippines. “So my expectation is after the initial spasm of rhetoric, the people will settle down, take a look at the facts, and we’ll be able to proceed.
What are we to do?
Mr. Whitehead's conclusion to The Deep State: The un-elected Shadow Government Is Here to Stay
Remember this the next time you find yourselves mesmerized by the antics of the 2016 presidential candidates, or drawn into a politicized debate over the machinations of Congress, the president or the judiciary: it’s all intended to distract you from the fact that you have no authority and no rights in the face of the shadow governments.If Whitehead is correct and there is nothing we can do, then we might as well grab a gun and blow our brains out. On the other hand, if you believe in the kingship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, then you will know that "this too shall pass."
