Military dictatorship more likely than Democrats repealing 22nd Amendment
May 11, 2013
Now that Benghazi appears to be destroying the political career of Hillary Clinton and taking air
out of the Clinton dynasty, we are beginning to hear rumblings once again about a third Obama term.
throw this prospect out every couple years. They try to get traction on the effort to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment limiting
the president to two terms. Democrats pine for the days of FDR and his interminable presidency. If not for a cerebral hemorrhage,
Roosevelt would have served an unprecedented fourth term. Republican nominee Thomas Dewey announced support of an amendment
in 1944 limiting future presidents to two terms. The Twenty-second Amendment was passed in 1947 and ratified by the states
George Washington did not seek a third term - he saw term limitation as a bulwark against monarchy - and Thomas
Jefferson railed against the prospect of life-long presidents. In 1807 he wrote, "if some termination to the services
of the chief Magistrate be not fixed by the Constitution, or supplied by practice, his office, nominally four years, will
in fact become for life." Madison and Monroe followed the two term limit, although later presidents, including Ulysses
S. Grant and Woodrow Wilson, flirted with the idea.
New York Democrat Rep. Jose Serrano has once again floated an effort
to kill the Twenty-second Amendment, undeterred by past failures stretching back to 1997. His bill has zero sponsors and is
unlikely to go forward, but it reveals a dogged determination by Democrats and some Republicans - including one sold as a
libertarian, Ronald Reagan - to install a president for life.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and former House Majority
Leader Steny Hoyer back the idea. Former president Bill Clinton believes in a third, non-consecutive term. "I've always
thought that should be the rule," Clinton told MSNBC's Morning Joe last November. "I think as a practical matter,
you couldn't apply this to anyone who has already served, but going forward, I personally believe that should be the rule."
Fortunately, repealing the amendment will not be easy. It requires a vote by both houses of Congress and approval by three-fourths
of the 50 states.
"America is certifiably insane, but that doesn't make ‘we the people' agree on much, and
at least 48% of voters, based on the results of the last election, didn't want Obama for a second term, much less for a lifetime,"
writes Jim Karger.
Despite the apparent political impossibility, Democrats are scrambling to create a King Obama and
install him for life so he can accomplish his neo-socialist dream - or rather the dream of his globalist handlers.
Obama has to weigh in if his next term will be enough, especially with the Republican majority in the House and obvious absence
of an able successor to achieve his goals," Sreedhar Pillai wrote for AOL's Huffington Post following the last election.
"Chances are he will see the need for a third term much like President Franklin Roosevelt before him" to accomplish
his agenda - which is, of course, the agenda of the ruling elite who use neo-socialism as a hammer to control the masses and
consolidate their power.
Liberals are remarkably naïve and seriously blinkered when it comes to understanding how
the elite use socialist ideas to institute authoritarian control methods. Liberals and Democrats are pathetically oblivious
to the indisputable fact that Obama has continued and intensified the agenda of his predecessor. The wars of globalist conquest
continue and expand. More inflated funny money was shoveled out to banksters and the financial elite under Obama than under
Bush as the establishment media sold the manufactured threat of an economic sword of Damocles taking down the nation. Obamacare
stands as a testament on how a socialist idea - universal health care - can be turned into a nightmare control mechanism.
A third Obama term seems remote at this juncture. However, there are a number of "emergency" scenarios that would
make it so.
Economic depression and a subsequent war - following the Federal Reserve pattern of the last century - would
likely result in either a repeal of Twenty-second amendment or the imposition of a martial law decree making Barry ruler for
life. The shadow government has well-developed plans on standby to suspend the Constitution and impose military rule, as Rep.
Jack Brooks briefly revealed during the Iran-Contra hearings.
Emergency decrees require a standing army in order to be
enforced. Under the fallacious war on terror, government has put in place a standing army and federally militarized police,
supposedly to protect us from bad guys who never attack and never will. Posse Comitatus is a dead letter and FEMA and Continuity
of Government mechanisms stand ready to convert America into a military dictatorship. The military actively plans for this
inevitability now on a weekly basis with in-your-face training exercises that include mock strafing of urban traffic and invading
"Standing armies [are] inconsistent with [a people's] freedom and subversive of their quiet,"
Thomas Jefferson wrote a year before the Revolution. He later laminated that the Bill of Rights does not provide "clearly
and without the aid of sophisms for... protection against standing armies."
Democrats may not be able to win back
the House of Representatives and continue their hold on the Senate, repeal the Twenty-second Amendment and crown a King Barry
They may, however, realize their authoritarian dreams through war and economic depression. In fact, this path
seems more likely than the states ever deciding to install for life one of the most unpopular presidents in modern history.
