From my blog entry Dec. 29, 2015 “2016 Predictions”:
My third prediction is we will not have an election next year. Between New Year’s Day and Election Day, the president will declare martial law. With the Constitution suspended, the presidential election will be on hold until further notice.
– Observing Obama through the campaign and into his administration, it quickly became obvious - to me anyway, this is a guy who wants to be Emperor, a King, Dictator for life. He was going to have to be dragged him out kicking and screaming - or carried out feet first. Whatever the case, he does not intend to go gently into that Good Night of former president-hood.
How will this happen?
Well, that was a problem. It takes a lotta guts, an absence of brains or an abundance of concern for the future of Freedom to make public predictions that not just challenge the popular narrative but even contradict the current paradigm. Look what happened to otherwise admired, intelligent people who didn’t swallow the Kennedy Assassination, Vince Foster’s “suicide”, TWA Flt 800, the Obama “birth certificate”, 9/11, Benghazi – all summarily lumped in with Big Foot, Roswell and Michelle Is A Man.
Playing Soothsayer, I couldn’t see a clear, definitive “pathway” at the time but current events this past week have now provided a basis for solid conjecture. Indeed, that’s all it can be until I get some new tea leaves or the parts come in for my malfunctioning crystal ball. So here goes:
In the non-stop Punditry Analysis of the Trump phenom, Anger has been tagged as the prime culprit. Turns out – for a change – the Talking Heads and Blow-Dried Set got it right. The anger at all levels of American society is so deep, so white-hot along with the fear of losing Pensions and Government Freebies to saving the Establishment Suite on the “DC-Wall St” Gravy Train, it has and will continue to produce greater anger, fear and panic. This will inexorably lead to more violent confrontations between the camps: Trump’s “Army”, People for Bernie (complete with Soros/MoveOn financing), Hillary’s Special Forces of Favored Minorities (BLM/New Black Panthers, LGBTs and other Victims Groups). After shutting down a big Trump Chicago rally, various groups are currently preparing for a summer of confrontations, sit-ins in Congress and other fun stuff from DC to Philly to NYC to Cleveland and dense population centers in-between.
This would not be difficult to pull off. On all sides, “the people” are mega-pissed at the Establishment and/or “the System” rigged against them. Listen to the in-your-face condescension dripping from Curly Haugland, RNC Committee member and GOP Establishment Big Wig telling everyone their vote doesn’t count for squat, that they,the RNC that makes the rules say who the Nominee will be, not you naïve, misinformed schlubs voters: (MSNBC). More fuel: Trump/Cruz Vow To Barricade Kasaich From Convention.
No need to list the cornucopia of flash points littering the American political landscape, just remember that old Lay’s potato chip ad: “Bet you can’t eat just one.” In this metaphor, with instant communications via InstaGrams, Twitters and Tweets, Facebook, the whole matrix of the Social Media mélange, it doesn’t take a Steven King imagination to come up with “just one”; many more destructive scenarios easily come to mind.
And when good old roughhouse “ruckus” morphs into financially fueled co-ordinated “chaos”, it’s just a matter of nanoseconds before the gunplay begins.
Conbsider: After a tumultuous GOP Convention, confrontations will have become so wide-spread, frequent and increasingly violent, Obama will appear on prime time TV to announce he cannot permit Election Day to take place as Constitutionally required. Voting places would likely be scenes of carnage and destruction, “veritable war zones”. What’s a President to do? Declare Martial Law and the Suspension of the Constitution. Just for a little while, you see….until “things” (and those Republican ruffians) calm down, law and order is restored, a “sensible” GOP candidate is put forth and a new Election Day scheduled…of course, these are uncharted waters…it could more time than anticipated because…well…you know how “they” are…So I will Do The Right Thing…for our children, for our National Security, for America….
Not possible! Why not? Because this is America! Because nothing like this has happened here before! Because the Government wouldn’t allo….
And they said Trump wouldn’t win either.
Check some of that American History not being taught in the Government Training Camps called “public schools”. Then get back to me…
