I spent the better part of my professional life understanding and improving on operational processes in the financial services industry. When a process appeared too complex or confusing close up, we had a standard phrase, “Step back and look down on it as if you were 10,000 feet above it.”
The actions of my government, the United States government, over the past nine plus months have been far too confusing for even the best of the political analysis ‘experts’ to define a direction much less an agenda. Every action seems to have less analysis and planning than the announced ‘initiative’ the day before. Starting with the closing of a prison (Gitmo) without giving one iota of thought to where do you put the 250 plus terrorists, onto a plan of spending a trillion dollars to stimulate the economy without the plan being read by the people making it law, much less being held up for measurement and evaluation by the folk whose money was being pledged.
The list goes on and on, buying bankrupt auto manufacturers, buying up all the used cars in America only to replace them by cars made by offshore companies, the health care ‘reform’ debacle, screaming at Fox News like a teenage girl screaming at her disciplinarian mother “I hate you.” All of these and many more actions seem to have nothing in common, no identifiable direction, no shared thread of policy or agenda…until you erase all the pre-defined framework that we are used to viewing government action in and rise up 10,000 feet and look down on the last nine months of government action and the unthinkable concept of an agenda emerges, chaos, intentional chaos.
Now your immediate reaction is either, “Oh brother another conspiracy theory” or “Why would a central government want to introduce chaos?” Please bear with me and read on, I will try, over the next several paragraphs to walk you through the process I followed to come to this conclusion.
Conspiracy is the foundation supporting all other actions of our political system. The problem with conspiracies is that they only work as long as all participants in the conspiracy are committed to a common goal. Republicans and Democrats (together with all other political parties) are committed to their group winning elections. We recently got a look inside the communications strategy of a political party in the midst of an election courtesy of White House Communications Director Anita Dunn. She said Obama Campaign Manager David Plouffe (political strategist chief campaign manager for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign) put out Web videos so the campaign could avoid talking to reporters and focus the media message.
“One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters. … We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it.”
To pull off this kind of managed/controlled dissemination of information on a man running for the most powerful position on the globe calls for a conspiracy so well managed that the first leak of its existence does not occur for almost a year after the election and only then because an embattled Anita Dunn needed to boost her own self esteem by bragging. (She thinks that kind of voter deception is a good thing, if that isn’t unwavering commitment to a cause I quite frankly do not know what would be.)
I would love to be able to say that only the bad guys ‘conspired’ but that is patently not the case, all those in the political arena conspire, regardless of the level of the office. Many, many years ago when I was a young man pretending to be Diogenes searching for an honest man, I was convinced to run for office as a trustee in a small but corrupt village…as a reformer! I accepted the invitation and ran as an independent, meeting and greeting voters and spouting my words of honesty, integrity and open government. Three months into the campaign and a week before the election, at a meeting of my ‘handlers’ I learned that ‘we’ had a spy planted on the opposition’s campaign committee who fed us all the strategy and tactical moves they were planning. It was an election of the trustee of a village for God’s sake…yet the process included the usual unethical conspiracy. It is a fact of life here in the US!
Why would a central government want to introduce chaos?
To paraphrase Euripides “Those whom the seekers of absolute power would conquer they first confuse!”
Let us start by once again turning to one of the White House insiders, Ms. Anita Dunn, “And then the third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa, not often coupled together, but the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is, you’re going to make choices.”
Mao Zedong’s concept of ‘making a choice’ was simply that he wanted China to represent a pure form of Communism at any cost and by the end of his Great Leap Forward a commune based industrialization program that ran from 1957 to 1960 an estimated 30 to 50 million Chinese citizens were dead, their demise directly related to Mao’s choices.
If Ms. Dunn is a follower of the obsession with achieving a pure Communist system, and she is the acknowledged member of a conspiracy to get Mr. Obama elected, may we not conclude that there is likelihood that Mr. Obama shares her objective.
Prior to Mr. Obama’s election on November 4, 2008 we knew very little about either his beliefs or his agenda. We had platitudes and his involvement with some less than attractive folk to go on. However all that changed on September 23, 2009 when Mr. Obama ‘leaked’ a view of his agenda, not to the people he works for, the United States citizenry, but to a group of people salivating over the possibility of their getting their hands on the ‘wealth of a nation’, our Nation.
On September 23, 2009 at 10:10 A.M. EDT President Obama gave a speech to The United Nations General Assembly that committed our Nation’s wealth, resources, culture and life style to ‘saving the world’. The speech is 5,000 words but 26 of those words tell a lot about where he wants to take this country of ours.
“We will integrate more economies into a system of global trade. …And we will set our sights on the eradication of extreme poverty in our time.” That is global poverty he is referring to.
In order to accomplish that objective he must spread the wealth of the US around the globe. In order to carry out that rather larcenous act he must either get the US working person’s buy in (fat chance) or take control of the machine producing the wealth of this Nation by sleight of hand and set about the redistribution via near dictatorial powers supported by his own special group of…oh my God…co-conspirators!
I am often accused of resorting to numbers to emphasize a point, however I am by education an accountant and have always believed the adage, ‘the devil is in the details’! So let us take a look at how much of the world’s wealth we are actually responsible for generating…that’s right, generating, how much of the global annual domestic wealth production are we, the hard working, innovative, sacrificing people responsible for producing?
To assemble these statistics I turned to three sources, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the CIA World Fact Book. The individual numbers by country do not differ that much but for some reason the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank elected to leave off several countries. Since my objective here is to point out the perspective of the 194 members of the General Assembly that sat salivating over our hard earned US assets relative to their balance sheets and income statements I will use the data from the CIA World Fact Book (a highly respected source) since it comes closest with data on all of the 195 country membership of the UN.
The Gross Domestic Product (the value of everything made or service provided) for all the 195 members of the United Nations (including the US) is $61.070 trillion ($61,070,000,000,000.00).
The United States contribution to that awesome number is $14.26 trillion or 23.4%. The next largest economy on the globe is Japan with 8.1% or 4.9 trillion followed very closely by China with 4.4 trillion/7.2%.
All told, the top 15 UN members account for 75.7% of Worldwide Gross Domestic Product of which the US accounts for about 1/3. The other 180 members are left to divide up the remaining 24.3%.
Beginning to get the picture? This is the proverbial ‘have vs. have not’ only on a global scale.
I am not going to enumerate the various circumstances that brings us to the position on this world stage of the richest guy in town, but we are there and nothing jumps out at me justifying our continuing the hard work, innovation and sacrifices, but hand off to others the rewards, either within the borders of this great country or worse yet, across the borders to 194 other countries. Further, I believe that very few of the 306 million folk inside our borders would elect to hand over large wads of their hard earned cash to pay for the lifestyle of others whether domestically or internationally!
…and President Obama and his insider group are very aware of this obstacle to their agenda.
If one analyzes, on a micro basis, the reaction to socialistic policies in the US it gets down to “I will get health care cheaper,” “I will get education cheaper,” “I will get energy cheaper.” There is little or no discussion by the citizenry or by the ‘Ruling Group” as to who is getting all these products and services at a higher cost so that the recipients of the largesse get them more cheaply. That question would force the analysis that would clearly point out the flaws in the concept.
Now let us expand that wealth redistribution policy globally.
As Mr. Obama spreads that 14.26 trillion bucks produced by us over an ever expanding international group of ‘largesse recipients’ even our lowest earners will become aware that they have less…and they will not be happy!
So Mr. Obama and his insider group have got to quickly get unimaginable powers to control the reaction of the US population, not just the big earners, but all 306 million of us.
What is their strategy, CHAOS!
- (It is as if he were their spy inside our campaign.) Now he has earned his bones with the global gang.
- Keep the grand plan secret.
- Never, never let the media point out that the definition of rich will keep descending until it includes the poor!
- “Those rich people have too much, it should be shared.” “Those people are poor because they are lazy and think they can live better off of my hard work.”
- Create unworkable bankrupting programs on such a grand scale that the debt load of the United States as a sovereign nation explodes to a point that the case can be made that the US needs assistance from the other 194 members of the United Nations.
- Massive unemployment, inflation, diminished dollar value, international movement to replace the dollar as the currency of choice, internal unrest, divisiveness, pitting American against American, etc.
- Propose to the United Nations that the US will submit to an ‘interim’ World Government, turning over unprecedented authority to select members of a specially formed commission of the United Nations General Assembly, based on a Global/Socialism model.
- Impose new laws in the United States, administered by special forces under the auspices of the United Nations.
- Void the US constitution, dissolve the government and become part of the New World Order.
- Redistribute the United States resources and assets until they are eventually depleted and the 195 members of the United Nations must look around for a new scam.
…and that is why the logical answer to the reason for a government that appears to be out of control is that “The agenda is planned, managed CHAOS.”
