I have been concerned about an ongoing Obama presidency since H.J. Res 5 was introduced to congress in 2009 by Rep. Jose Serrano (D). Rep. Serrano has introduced similar bills on about six occasions that I can find, dating back to the Clinton presidency. He has been adamant about repealing the 22nd amendment, showing little concern about the party in power at the time of introduction.
However, Rep. Serrano’s attempt in 2009 reinforced Obama’s Jim Jones cult-like following. The man had done nothing notable in either his civilian or public career at that point to warrant such an opportunity. He had not even achieved academic notoriety. There was no ration at that time for paving the way to an Oligarchy. Yes, I am aware that there were many attempts to do away with the 22nd Amendment prior and since. That one just happened to be the most worrisome to me and I believe it should have been for the country.
Virtually every federal agency now has a fleet of armored vehicles manned by an army of federal agents authorized to wield automatic rifles loaded with jacketed hollow point ammunition. That, combined with the poking and jabbing of this administration to cause rioting can only mean an attempt to declare Martial Law is imminent. They will nudge and prod until the American public has had enough of a purposely stalled economy, expensive yet often inaccessible health care, race baiting and destruction of everything worthy of holding dear.
The recent incident in Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of the overuse of force and potential beyond what was used. There were countless photos and video shots of combat ready roof top snipers willing and awaiting command to shoot citizens incited to riot by race baiting public figures. Armored vehicles were staged around the city with assault teams anxious to brandish their power.
It might well have started with the election in 2008. No investigation ensued for two New Black Panther Party officials who blatantly intimidated voters in Philadelphia. Attorney General, Eric Holder, refused to investigate the incident. Since then, the President or the Atty. Gen. has weighed in on many racial and religious issues, always taking the side of blacks over whites and Muslims over Christians and Jews. Their arrogant manipulating of strained situations serves only to inflame racial and religious tensions across the nation.
The open border policy allowing the infiltration of unknown numbers of violent criminals, known gang members and even terrorists only reinforces my belief that this country is no longer the one in which I have grown and which I proudly served. It will take only one bomb explosion or one incident of mass poisoning or the release of one cloud of toxic gas for the president to declare Martial Law and extend his own power reign.
Expect the American discontentment to continue, increasing to rage, as the government authorities aggregate more power and impose more restrictions on our liberties. They will then, parse the words of the Constitution until every word’s meaning is supplanted, effectively eliminating the document.
