The Debt-Ceiling Diversion

The Debt-Ceiling Diversion
by Robert Ringer
Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Watching the nonstop commentaries on television about the debt-ceiling debate only reinforces the reality that most people — including many perceived conservatives — still don’t get it. If they did, they would not allow themselves to be diverted by a political circus.

It amazes me how the vast majority of conservatives — both in and outside of the media — still take Barack Obama seriously and believe he is desperately trying to save the U.S. from economic disaster. Don’t get me wrong. Barack Obama wants to do what is right for America, but his vision of “right” is wealth redistribution on a massive scale carried out by an all-powerful federal government.

As Obama continues to toy with Republicans over raising the debt ceiling, he is well aware that the continuation of his policies will destroy the U.S. economy beyond repair. I believe his strategy from the outset has been to follow the Saul Alinsky model: Win the presidency through a semi-legitimate election, then tighten your grip over everything and everybody, move swiftly to create economic chaos, and use the chaos you’ve created to establish a dictatorship.

Now don’t go giving Obama too much credit for originality. He’s really just a slick and clever copycat. Getting elected and then using your powers to eliminate all competition is an old trick used by power-hungry thugs throughout history.

Of all the dictators over the past hundred years, I believe Obama’s rise to power mirrors that of Adolf Hitler’s more than anyone else. I know, I know … I can practically hear readers chuckling. Enslaved people throughout history have a propensity for chuckling — until they wake up one morning and find themselves in chains. So, by all means, feel free to chuckle — but do hear me out.

Though most people don’t realize it, Hitler was legitimately chosen to be chancellor of Germany in 1933 by President Paul von Hindenburg. At his swearing in ceremony, Hitler faithfully repeated the oath of office: “I will employ my strength for the welfare of the German people, protect the Constitution and laws of the German people, conscientiously discharge the duties imposed on me, and conduct my affairs of office impartially and with justice to everyone.”

Nice words … similar to those uttered by Obama when being sworn into office. Hitler was a charming, eloquent speaker who carried on incessantly about change. (Sound familiar?) Then, once elected, he moved quickly to establish a dictatorship — accomplishing that seemingly impossible feat in fifty-two days. Obama moved swiftly as well, but opposing forces in America made it impractical to establish a quick dictatorship.

The upstart Nazi Party (which was the commonly used name for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party … repeat, Socialist) staged a slobbering love affair between Hitler and the German people. (Sound familiar?) When Hitler spoke for the first time as chancellor, it was said that “he was greeted with an outpouring of worshipful adulation unlike anything ever seen before in Germany.” (Sound familiar?)

In The Road to Serfdom, F.A. Hayek explained the way countries travel the road from democracy to dictatorship:

It is important to remember that, for some time before 1933, Germany had reached a stage in which it had, in effect, had to be governed dictatorially. … Hitler did not have to destroy democracy; he merely took advantage of the decay of democracy and at the critical moment obtained the support of many to whom, though they detested Hitler, he yet seemed the only man strong enough to get things done.

Under the Articles of Confederation, the central government of America was very weak – which was a good thing. It was true then, and it’s true now: You can have a strong government and a weak people, or a strong people and a weak government – but you cannot have both. Today, we have a draconian, out-of-control government and a very weak people.

Arguably, democracy in this country started to break down in 1787 when the Constitution created a strong federal government. It got worse — much worse — under the fascist policies of Woodrow Wilson’s reign from 1912 to 1920. Then, beginning in 1932, FDR’s failed socialist policies took away even more individual freedom from American citizens. And the final disintegration of true democracy in the U.S. was catalyzed by the left-wing revolutionaries of the sixties.

So if you’re wondering how Obama and his Marxist cronies have been able to violate the Constitution as though it didn’t exist, the answer is that they are merely taking advantage of the decay of democracy in the U.S. that was already present when they came to power. While Americans have been busy focusing on sports, reality TV, eating out three nights a week, and trying to pay their mortgages, the fascistic socialists in Washington have been quietly working to establish a dictatorship based on the ruins of our democracy (which actually began as a republic).

Get it? I hope so. Because if a vast majority of everyday folks don’t get it soon, it will be too late. As I have repeatedly said, the debt-ceiling debate is nothing more than a distraction from the real, underlying problem we all face: We are losing our freedom.

Our focus should be on stopping Barack Obama and his Marxist allies in Washington from establishing a communist dictatorship — politely referred to by conservative media commentators as an “imperial presidency.” But regardless of what one calls it, the important thing to understand is that under a dictatorship, everything else becomes irrelevant — including the debt-ceiling “crisis” that political junkies are spending so much time fretting about.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

  1. Death by Hyperinflation.

  2. we've got em right where they have us!

  3. The problem isn't Obama and his policies, the economy is going to fail regardless of who is in charge. The problem is with the Federal Reserve and their ability to print money out of thin air. This has devalued the dollar and is the reason why the world has turned their back on us.

    I would be skeptical of this author. Read his copyright, his articles have appeared in newspapers that are owned and controlled by Murdoch. I am not saying this completely discredits his opinion, but I believe you should at least be skeptical. Murdoch is the front-man for the Illuminati's media power.

    I am not saying Obama is a good President, but placing ALL the blame on him is only distracting you from the real problems.

  4. So everyone in Washington is a fascistic socialist and they would just go along with Obama the dictator ? Nonsense.

    REMEMBER THIS ... Americans have guns and no one will take them away.

    - WHITE HATS REPORT # 26 - UPDATE: TROPOS EXPOSURE SHIFTING THE MARKETS Posted By: Jordon [Send E-Mail]Date: Monday, 1-Aug-2011 21:38:05
    August 1, 2011 We want to applaud, support and give credit to Harvey Organ on picking up on the Tropos information, and realizing the effects on the global gold and silver markets. In White Hats Report #23, we wrote a detailed overview of Tropos, and are very happy that we are starting to see the results of shining the light on the corruption in this America, by our leaders and their minions. The default notice sent to Bernanke which was posted in White Hats Report #23, was also sent to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. .....What is clear is that Tropos has already put the United States into a technical default, by serving notice of default to the Bureau of Public Debt last July 5, 2010. The Bureau never repudiated the default, and it stands in default now as a matter of law. It is only a matter of time now before rating agencies are forced to confront this fact. What makes the affair a scandal much bigger than Watergate, is that Tropos served notice to President Obama that the Bureau of Public Debt, along with the Federal Reserve, were both noted in default, and that Senator Harry Reid and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
    ...... had been apprised of this, but were waiting on Obama to act. This is the coverup that could send shockwaves through the global debt markets, after the hype over debt ceiling, is over. ........ *** Harvey Organ was born July 3rd, 1947 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada...... Mr. Organ has been trying to expose the fraudulent manipulation of the gold market ever since the "Long Term Capital" downfall in 1998. Mr. Organ has taken personal responsibility to share what he knows, expose the fraud and educate the intricacies of the gold and silver paper and physical markets.Read more about Harvey Organ go to his blog link at:
