The debate in Congress over what to do about Syria is going to be interesting. If the parties stick to their core beliefs, Obama would lose as Democrats bailed on him given their anti-war obsessions. The GOP would be pushing the issue of maintaining the wrath of God on Earth over heinous crimes against humanity, but enough of them would also bail.
But party platforms and core beliefs become jello-like when it comes to questions of political power. So don’t hold your breathe on traditional roles from the parties in DC.
Now we have Obame, Biden, Pelosi and John Kerry rattling the swords of war – a twilight zone moment to be sure. And the GOP is probably struggling on whether one crime against humanity deserves another. Trust me, I am not going soft on national security – just pointing out the obvious political calculations. The GOP must be salivating over the opportunity to paint the Democrats as heartless war-mongers and themselves as patrons of peace.
The wild card is who is going to buckle on their beliefs more? There are plenty of anti-war democrats who are so serious about this issue they will not support their party leadership. One wonders how a vote on war can follow within weeks of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther Kings march on Washington DC and not rip at the core of the Democrats. So everyone is looking to the GOP to be the ones that have to pull Obama over the top.
Not to mention John Kerry’s Sunday road show of political TV did not go well for the administration. I doubt America is behind this no matter what Congress votes.
But another wild card is the fact that our nation is flat, …busted, …broke. A huge government lie as been running for almost 4 months now. A lie that has been propped up by the Political Industrial Complex to hide it from We The People. A lie that is coming to a head this month:
The Treasury Department’s latest official daily accounting of the U.S. government’s receipts, expenditures and borrowings–released this afternoon at 4:00 p.m.–indicates that the legally limited debt of the federal government has now been exactly $16,699,396,000,000 for 100 straight days.
The statement for Aug. 23 said the federal debt subject to the legal limit set by Congress was $16,699,396,000,000—or $25 million below the current limit of $16,699,421,000,000. Every Daily Treasury Statement since May 17 has also shown the legally limited debt at $16,699,396,000,000, or $25 million below the limit.
This of course is impossible. The nation runs a debt every month, every week and every day of the year. The deficit in July was nearly $100 Billion, dwarfing the supposed $25 million the treasury says we had on the books for that month.
It is a lie. A gross lie covered up by the news media, pundits and politicians. DC has been spending money illegally and the crooks in DC are afraid to tell the people the true numbers.
So how is it Obama can pay for an attack on Syria? Heck, he did not have the money to send the ships he sent!
The new budget that is supposed to fund the government starting October 1 has no hope of becoming law, making Obama’s administration the first to basically run on Continuing Resolutions as Harry Ried’s Senate makes a hash out of our constitution by not passing budget for years on end. No money now, no money on October.
How can these lame-ass administrators of government find the money to attack Syria? With only France as a potential ally (an ally with no military force mind you)?
The question is will Obama’s war cries go down in a historic vote of no confidence – as we saw in the UK this week? Or will the Pols in DC start making their back-door deals for political power and once again throw honor, ethics and morals out the window?
Sadly, my bet is on the latter happening.
