"Politics is the business of getting power and privilege without possessing merit.  A politician is anyone who asks individuals to surrender part of their liberty -- their power and privilege -- to State, Masses, Mankind, Planet Earth, or whatever.  This state, those masses, that mankind, and the planet will then be run by ... politicians."- P. J. O’Rourke


Nothing in the world is more haughty than a man of moderate capacity when once raised to power. -Baron Wessenberg 

I have found Facebook to be good for one thing and only one thing. I can find out what the masses, or the dark underbelly, are thinking out there. It’s like having one of those Fusion Centers that Alex Jones fears at my fingertips. One theme I keep coming across lately is the ammo purchases by various agencies such as the weather service and what some believe that means. I believe the weather service purchase was for around 40,000 rounds of pistol ammo. Unless you’re living in one of those bastions of liberal snivalry you’ll find at least that much ammo in two or three city blocks. In other words, it’s not all that much ammo and the weather service does have sensors in remote locations where one would really like to be packing some heat and they do have to practice. There are also much larger purchases by DHS and many other agencies. I’ve looked at several of the purchase orders and they span a period of years. Billions of rounds aren’t being shipped to loading docks as I write. I’ve seen these dire reports from Russian TV on youtube and in their written version and also from Alex Jones. (Two very trustworthy sources? Nyet!) I haven’t had the time to see how often purchases such as this are made and I don’t really need to. What bothers me is the timing and the reaction to all of this information. This is carefully planned and targeted agitprop.

Since this administration began there has been a common theme and yes Obama, it has been a theme of division. You often speak of two separate Americas. Janet said it best when she referred to anyone who didn’t agree with you as a terrorist and then focused the eyes of DHS and several other agencies on the American people. That was strictly for the purpose of silencing dissent and it didn’t work because there wasn’t enough fear and terror to back it. The ammo purchases I mentioned above and what comes next in this commentary happen to be the next phase. If you can’t win their hearts and minds then you just have to try to scare the hell out of them.

On the link at the bottom of the page go read ‘The Scenario (2016)” and you will easily see that this is a product of leftwing fantasy and it includes an Obama win in 2012. They actually refer to the KKK hooking up with the tea party. They talk about race baiting by the right wingers. Race baiters are usually leftwing ideologues and in order to join the KKK you had to be a registered Democrat. I just thought I’d toss a few facts in there for you. What is stunning to me is that these are supposed to be our best, our brightest intellectuals on warfare and politics? What it does show is that you just have to be able to regurgitate back to your professor anything he told you and you will pass. What might be the purpose of this new insult on our society? I read it as a veiled threat that should be used to highlight how desperate and corrupt they are. We’ve seen Janet Nap refer to anyone who doesn’t agree with her boss as a domestic terrorist and now we have this: An intellectual war game scenario that I believe is supposed to scare us. It is supposed to make those of us who are not in full agreement with the current administration afraid. I am afraid! There you got what you were looking for. Now let me finish that statement. I am afraid that you couldn’t be more wrong. I am afraid that you’re nothing more than a bunch of indoctrinated idiots that don’t know education from indoctrination. I am afraid, also, that you don’t realize that just because you’re completely and totally corrupt doesn’t mean that everyone else is and that those gun barrels you’re pointing around in your scenario won’t be pointing at us. In short order they’ll be pointing at you. You will be arrested and tried and out of the way. Yes, there are some bad people out here that will buy this load of garbage hook line and sinker and start thinking of doing something stupid. Yeah, that’s the other reason this was written, that and creating the groundwork for more indoctrination and twisting further down the road. The Colonel who wrote this scenario needs to be fired. This scenario also has the added use of driving wedges between authorities and the citizens. There’s that fingerprint of division again. To those of you who are pushing this as evidence we’re about to be overrun - If you always wondered what one of Stalin’s useful idiots might look like, just go look in a mirror.

One other thing O! Your idea about using the Strategic Oil Reserves to drop the price of fuel just before the election isn’t going to fly. It’s an emergency alright, but it’s your personal emergency and it has arrived just in time to make sure everyone remembers that you caused all of this. It’s like all of those layoffs that are coming because once again you haven’t gotten a budget passed. You couldn’t even get a budget when the Democrats controlled both houses proving that not all Democrats are stupid. You don’t get to defray those costs with taxpayer money to get yourself reelected. It’s always the left that comes up with this corrupt approach of using our money to bribe us. You may not be the most transparent administration as you promised, but it’s easy to see through your infantile manipulations.
