NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE: I Can Assure You That Obama Wants the U.S. to Default [Updated]

Updated 10/10/2013 20:19: Obama is intransigent. He will not negotiate on spending, on the debt ceiling, on Obamacare, on anything.

"You never want a serious crisis go to waste." --White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, February 9, 2009
I've heard no commentator ask the following question: What if President Obama wants a default?

This is, after all, a man whose starting negotiating position is that he "will not negotiate" with Congress on spending to raise the debt ceiling. This is a position unprecedented in American history since only Congress is granted the "power of the purse".

This is a man willing to use the instrumentalities of government to punish innocent Americans.

This is a man willing to torture World War II veterans, many of whom are terminally ill and trying to see their memorial for the first and last time.

This is a man spreading panic and fear about the debt ceiling, an utterly irresponsible, reprehensible and unprecedented step by a president.

Here are the facts:

There is virtually no chance of a default, unless Obama orders a default

In fact, Dean Clancy has done an exceptional job dissecting Obama's fear-mongering over the debt ceiling.

There is virtually no chance of a default, unless Obama orders a default.

...Mr. Obama is misleading the public by suggesting the question is whether to pay our bills. Of course we will pay our bills. No one is saying we shouldn't. The question is whether to raise the debt ceiling without also putting in place reforms to make future borrowing less necessary. Mr. Obama's resistance to such reforms makes him, not fiscal conservatives, the one holding the absurd position...
...As the chart above shows, if we hit the debt ceiling, we will still have more than enough tax revenue coming in to pay the most economically and politically sensitive obligations...

...In talking about "not paying our bills," Mr. Obama is hinting -- without openly saying -- that the US Government might fail to pay its creditors. This is highly irresponsible. He knows very well that, in the event we hit the debt ceiling, the US will continue to be able to pay all holders of US bonds (principal as well as interest). Even so deep-dyed a left-winger as Mr. Obama would never dare to miss a payment to bondholders. If he did, Uncle Sam's credit rating would almost certainly take an immediate hit, driving up interest rates and rattling world markets. In failing to make all this clear, the President allows those who are less knowledgeable to mistakenly assume that a debt default is a realistic possibility. It's not.

True, Dean, under normal circumstances, a default is not a realistic possibility.

But these are not, by any stretch, normal circumstances.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

Author James Simpson has probably done the most comprehensive work in documenting "The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis". His seminal article, written before Obama's 2008 election, predicted what the community organizer had in mind for America. The strategy, first articulated by two Columbia professors -- who taught there during Obama's years as a student -- describes crushing capitalism by overwhelming it through massive expansion of the welfare state.

The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse...

...Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul Alinsky...

...Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth...

Are Obama's refusal to negotiate, his threats of economic collapse, and his incessant agitating all intended to set the stage for a default?

As a lever to achieve his oft-stated goal of "fundamental transformation"?

I leave that answer as an exercise for the reader.

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." --Senator Barack Obama, July 2, 2008

Not quite yet.
He is testing our resolve, gauging how far we can be pushed. He is attempting to flush out the enemies of the agenda to destroy America.
There have been set backs, their timeline is in disarray. We have not taken the bait. They want to provoke people, the results of which will provide the reasons to validate the narrative of domestic terrorists, racism, and other agitprop they have been pushing.
They are really afraid of the guns Americans posses. I think they want to get some folks pissed off enough to take drastic measures. This gives the tyrants the excuse they been trying to create to declare America "ungovernable" and rescind the rule of law of the Constitution. You know, an eternal coupe, from the top down and inside out.

I think they underestimate the good character and cultural inherent abide American's hold for the ideals of republican form of government and it's roots in Liberty.

These tyrants have been indoctrinated in and taught the thinking of the old world. They don't have a grasp of reason and ideals that created the 5000 year leap.

If hey did, most of them wouldn't be trying to destroy America.

It is why they will loose.

We need to be ever vigilant and strong, yet non-violent, in our response. They are shredding the fabric of society, causing great harm, through the tools of the statists - federal institutions (that well-funded civilian army, programs to "re-educate", i.e. propagandize, like Common Core, Race to the Top, Let's Move, and persistent disinformation (the media).

One our primary duties is to uphold our Second Amendment rights, for without it, all of our rights under the Constitution will vanish.

BTW - Hillary, who is a devout Alinskyite, is being primed to be the extension of this tyrannical, statist regime. We can hound her mercilessly on Benghazi, and a million other evil deeds (Whitewater, Vince Foster, anyone?)

There is no evil I would put past George Soros and his minions, including Barack Obama. said...

Don't underestimate how crazy this guy is, or how crazy the people surrounding him are.

Remember his first choices to surround himself with: Van Jones ("I am a communist") and Anita Dunn ("Mao is my political hero").

Man, what short memories people have. And how people are so deaf to the truth when they hear it from the lunatic himself.

Obama is the horror we all believed he was. Now the horror is the amount of people who still refuse to believe it.

Some time ago, a friend suggested that to have the president merely muse in public about defaulting on America's public debt would end forever the willingness of anyone to purchase U.S. debt obligations, from Savings Bonds to T-bills. Obama might just have reaped the whirlwind -- and it's rotating in the exact opposite direction of what he claims to seek.

Brother you said it.

I contend they are very afraid of the plurality. They are afraid of our arms. They are afraid of what we can do to them for what they have done to us. Most of all they are afraid of rugged individualism, the independent thinking of people who understand the illegitimacy of the leviathan, especially those who constitute this tyranny. It is those who are not afraid who must be destroyed. It is all that stands in the way of the destruction of America.

How does a tyrant and the state crush such statist apostasy?

By foisting on such a plurality, by any dastardly means, a false stigma, crimes and treason the statist himself is so terribly guilty of committing against the plurality to begin with.

That's alynski 101

Our arms represent our ultimate final power over our Liberty and destiny. They not even need be used in anger or defience to tyranny to effect the course of Liberty. It is the threat they imply where the greatest power lays. Combined with an aroused plurality enjoined together in common cause in lawful civil revolt, no statist power possible, without use of violence and mass political detension, within these United States, is capable of withstanding this force.

That right there must become common knowlege to a plurality of Americans, where it is embraced, discussed, formlated into our fabric of culture, accepted as truth. Truth where the common good and health of all we cherish comes before any power or it's tyrants.

Before we take up and wield the might of the pen, or the wrath of our arms, remember well there is a far greater weapon. The very might that we are always, and always will be, free men.
Never for a moment doubt, that it is both the source of our greatest strength as men, as a people.

This very idea is the crux at the heart of the existential threat to tyranny.

It is what the tyrants must destroy first to destroy everything else about us.

It is the greatest most feared assault weapon in the arsenal of Liberty we posses.

It is orange revolution, peaceful civil revolt. That the path to sovereignty lies. That must first be taken. It is culture upstream of all that is wrong with republican form of representative government as we know it today. The understanding and denouncing by the plurality of the illegitimacy of the sate, that the course of our culture must take by all and any means before resort to armed redress. This has the potential to restore the vigor of our sovereign dignity, the dignity of Liberty. It is the lynchpin of freedom, the fulcrum of dislodging tyranny. It is suited well to the culture, social contract, and moral bearings of the plurality. It proves the truth of how our founders accomplished the 5000 year leap. How a system of representative government would function long as a moral people lived within it. Inseparable from representative form of government is the art and social contract of representing our selves first and foremost. It refreshes a people, lifts them, strengthens their character, nourishes moral fiber, lends credence to faith and something better and larger than just our self.

We all got to grasp the truth we are not alone. We are a great nation of good people. That there is much good in the world. That these are things are worth fighting for.

Lets Win!

You absolutely nailed it, Mt Top Patriot.

"A civilian national security force" was thought at the time to mean Acorn brownshirts. It actually meant Thousands of APCs and tanks for the DHS, Student loan and EPA SWAT teams and Billions upon Billions of rounds of hollowpoint ammunition for the Federal government goons from every single department.

Now if your local city started arming its utility workers, security guards and sanitation workers with military weapons and bought tanks for the local police, and then started to force political changes on the citizens while trying to disarm everyone, what would a casual observer think was happening? Seriously, the Left calls this tinfoil hat stuff?

Well, we've already seen the NPS pushing their skanky, arrogant weight around with tourists and Vets. You may have swerved near the truth.
That Americans would be so willing to exercise force against their fellow citizens is not unlike Nazi Germany. We thought it could never happen here but it is beginning, thanks to Jug Ears and his Beard.
