It is clear now that the Obama/Reid plan to refuse negotiations — again, the GOP is asking for universal delay of ObamaCare rather than Obama’s selective waivers; and it asking that Congress be compelled to follow the law it passed, nothing more — is orchestrated and intended to move directly to the debt limit debate, which the President, his administration, progressives, the news media, academics, and leftwing law professors (but I repeat myself) are busy laying the rhetorical ground work for. The play is this: Obama will (and already has) try to draw a distinction between the government “shutdown” (which is really nothing more than the temporary closing of non-essential governmental functions and the furloughing of employees who will be reimbursed after the shutdown for time missed) and what he’s calling an impending “economic” shutdown, which he is using to try to worry the markets, scare those who receive social security or disability benefits, etc., and gin up a Constitutional “crisis” that the left has been plotting for some time now: using the 14th Amendment (and completely inverting the INTENT of specific language), the President plans to argue — and receive intellectual and media cover — that if the House refuses to raise the debt limit, he is put into an untenable position: either he follow the Constitution and abides the House, in which case, he’ll claim, the US will “not be able to pay its bills” and will “default”; or else he must of necessity circumvent the Constitution and unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congressional authorization in order to avoid a “default” and a world-wide economic collapse. He will be lying. First, there will only be a default should Jack Lew and the President refuse to prioritize spending and pay the interest on the debt, bonds, and essential services — and monthly revenues are in excess of those payments. Meaning, revenues are in excess of any supposed lack of money to bring about default. Lew has already indicated he is willing to go this route, calling the prioritizing of spending “unworkable” — which is a falsehood, but even were it not, it should indicate to every American that the federal government has lost fiscal and economic control altogether and is simply spending until an inevitable collapse.

YEAH, I GET IT, .....THEY PLAN TO LIE,.......AGAIN......I'M BEGINNING TO THINK, IF THEY EVER TOLD THE TRUTH, THEIR BRAINS WOULD FALL OUT,...AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO CLEAN THEIR PANTS.
Creating the crisis and managing the crisis. The commie Alinsky and his methods were learned by Obama and crew and have been applied across the national landscape since the days of Obama's very first community organizing in Chicago. His dedication to corruptocrats and their binge drinking at the bottomless fountain of government funded largess has continued nonstop. With Obama now in control of the spigot the flow has gone from a mere trickle (and Trillions in debt) to unimaginable size. His cronies are gleefully stacking every government agency with more commie thugs and thieves than we can imagine. And the flow of cash to never before heard of obscure and hidden (but funded) government agencies is producing a windfall of booty for the new looters who are on government payrolls.
Dr. Garrow, I agree entirely with your post and I believe it calls it exactly as it is.
Crisis... They want a crisis. The progressives want to save us from the crisis they have created with the welfare state and overspending. They have enough government dependents who will riot when their government checks are stopped. Once the riot starts, we will need martial law to save us. Meanwhile, they will blame the fiscal conservative Christian constitutionalists for causing the riots.
Will it work? Or, will it finally wake up the American churches to reality of living in delusions while the government has been taken over by amoral progressives with huge desires for power and control of the people.
The world's ruling class will have succeeded in bringing America down to a level that will allow throwing away our constitution while moving into world government under the supervision of the United Nations, who will be called in to help quell the riots....
That is the end game. Will America fall for it? If we don't, you can expect a huge war to break out somewhere in order to distract from prosecuting the progressives and the elite ruling class.
He has erected New Offices and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people and eat out their substance!
There is only one way to deal with people that are demon possessed, they must be eliminated.
The fecal mess in DC is getting deeper and the Oder is unbearable. DC needs a good Flushing.
Simple question; When has Obama ever told the truth about anything? I don't think he has the capability to tell the truth. Obama is a paid liar and does that job very well! My support of Obama turned away shortly after he was elected when i began to realize that the promises he made on his campaign trail were all lies! He has continued to lie ever since.
So, you voted for him? It looks like some tiny part of this might be owned by you.
I have been of the belief for some time that the endgame will be an unconstitutional power grab by Obama, taking us one more step down the road, and this step a big one, toward a totalitarian dictatorship, with Congress effectually gutted as a meaningful institution and turned into a rubber-stamp, as happened with the Roman Senate in the Empire.
HOW TO PREVENT IT - - March on the liberal press!
If the liberal press stopped blindly backing Obama and the Dems - - perhaps they would negotiate. As long as they can't lose in the press (which keeps public opinion under control via there distorted coverage) Obama and the Dems will not negotiate.
Another weapon that could be added to the arsenal would be - - - going to all sites and situations the democrats have blocked - - take pictures or video and blast it over social media, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, - - just hammer the Internet with proof of their broken minds!
so how is this fundamental transformation and redistribution of wealth stuff working out for you? Are you feeling warm and cozy knowing that the communist democrats are compelling this country into bankruptcy? Do you really want to be like Greece and other European countries? Rioting in the streets, burning businesses, destroying jobs & killing your own fellow citizens. Do you continue to blindly follow these communist democrats simply because the main street media tells you they are great. Wake up America!! The evil Osama -reed & peloshee are leading you on a path of destruction. Do you follow like stupid blind mice or rebel against this evil like intelligent rational human beings. Do not be one of those who does nothing. Call Washington -tell them your view - tell your neighbors your view - just do not sit quietly & idly buy & do nothing.
