In previous articles, I mentioned the importance of the midterm elections, and how (to run the country effectively and to be reelected) the President needs success within his first six months in office. Although he is more than willing to make changes and has demonstrated his good intentions, the battle with the ensconced Marxists labeling themselves as either “progressives” or “centrists” is being lost. Why is it being lost? It is because these prior Obama appointees in the Circuit courts and the Supreme Court, along with the innumerable holdovers within the administration’s machinery effectively amount to a “fifth column,” bent on sabotaging the President’s efforts.
The successful derailment is well under way. As I wrote in other articles, all that is needed for the Democrats to take the Senate and the House of Representatives in the upcoming Midterm elections is for the President to not make visible and productive changes within the first six months of his term. The stultified public will perceive it as a failure, and with the RINO (Republicans In Name Only) Republican party to help with a “shove” here and there, the President will fall right into the pool.
The planned border fence will not be built, the repeal of Obamacare will not take place, the flood of illegals will neither be stopped or reversed, and financial measures to stimulate the domestic economy are being implemented at glacial speed. All the President’s executive orders are being struck down by the Obama-appointed judges in the courts. There is not much time remaining before the Midterm congressional elections are a year out, and even before the campaigning has begun, it appears it will be up for grabs.
Obamacare is the best example of what has been outlined. Aetna recently bowed out and pulled out of the machinery as far as private insurance companies run. They stated that the arena was “untenable” and that the firm could no longer underwrite with the budgetary shortfalls and the nebulosity that lacked a demarcation of where government responsibility was to pick up what the company did not underwrite. From an economic perspective, everyone with a brain knew that Obamacare would not function properly and would be a financial and administrative disaster.
That is why Obamacare is a success: it was meant to collapse the system and the insurance companies, forcing into existence a single-payer system and a government “exchange” that intruded on the lives of every citizen…pure “Cloward and Piven” at its finest.
The Republican Party is responsible for the continuance of Obamacare. Nobody is focusing upon this fact. Right now, everyone is focused upon Comey and a potential tie-in with Flynn and any connection to Russia regarding pre-election campaign communiques between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Russian leadership. Obamacare is all but forgotten.
With the Republicans in control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, at this point, the bill to repeal Obamacare should have already passed both houses of Congress and been on the President’s desk to sign: this was not done, and the Republican Party is to blame.
If the President is unable to make a change while he has both houses of Congress under Republican control, what will happen after the Midterm election changes the complexion of Congress and makes it Democrat? How will he be reelected, and if so, to what end? He waited too long to fire Comey…a name that will torment us in the news even more than that of Natalie Holloway…and now it is turning around to bite him. What is the solution?
War. War is the means an administration uses to sway public opinion and garner the Congress and the other nabobs into lockstep under the guise-choice of “you’re either patriotic or unpatriotic,” forced upon all of them in the court of public opinion and on the media’s stage. War is supported by the Congress, who is bought by the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) and the oligarchy and their army of lobbyists.
The administration is not accomplishing anything effectively, but a war can “rescue” it from its difficulties and divert the public’s attention. There are several theaters that can easily metastasize into a full-blown conflict and then draw in other nations for an all-out war. To catalyze such actions would be a simple feat for any administration with the resources of the United States backing it. The question remains to be answered whether the administration will take such a step to save itself.
History proves out a high probability that an administration will do such: Carter with Desert One (the failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt), Reagan with Grenada, Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain with the Falkland Islands, Bush Sr. with Iraq (I), Clinton with the bombing of Serbia and the war in Bosnia, and Bush Jr. with Iraq (II). Will this administration take similar measures in any of the “powder keg” theaters of Ukraine, North Korea, or Syria? The question remains to be answered, and the probability is high that the answer will be “yes.”
