THE PATH TO UNDERSTANDING
By J.W. Bryan
April 11, 2015
Evidently, the Republican leadership is continuing down the path to accepting the so-called “free trade” agenda of the Obama Administration, and they're willing to fast track it. They act as though it's solely about trade and to all appearances, so do most Republican members of the House, and Senate.
This poses a question about these people, the Republicans. Are they really so stupid or so simple minded to believe that anything presented by the Obama Administration could be good for the country? Where have they been for these past six years? Do they not remember that he (Obama) stated that he was going to “Fundamentally Transform America”? And have they not seen that he has been constantly doing that very thing? If they haven’t seen all this, haven’t been able to be cognizance of it, then how do you suppose they are able to get out of bed in the morning, dress themselves, go out into the workaday world, perform whatever their task might be, and return home at the day’s end? Where are the true representatives of the American people?
Of course after watching our congress for many years, we know they're neither ignorant nor stupid. So, when we cancel that out – where does this leave us? It leaves us with their complicity. We must conclude they have to know what they are doing. So, that being the case,(that they know what they are doing) then it must be that they have observed and are fully aware of Mr. Obama’s actions, as well as his directives over the past six years, and are therefore in full agreement with his goal of “Fundamental Transforming America.”
The issue at hand is the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), i.e., fast track authority, which would give authority for the President to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with only an up or down, i.e., yes or no vote. This in itself gives him a tremendous advantage in getting the proposed legislation passed. In addition, due to the restrictions on debate, it prevents exposure of most of the contents contained in those 2000 pages which Congressmen and Senators have neither had time to examine, nor the inclination to do so. This, of course, means we would not have any idea what those unread pages contained until Mr. Obama, or someone other decided to spring the entire trap.
There are several red flags about this so-called “free trade” agreement which should alert anyone who is concerned about the best interests of the country. It is a trap to be avoided, for it stands to reason it is in line with all the provisions to implement the Agenda for World Government which is being pushed by Obama. All this plays into the strategy to “Fundamentally Transform America.” Add to that the fact that it has been secretly negotiated, i.e., kept hidden from Congress, and the American people.
All this, only in itself, is very sinister, but what is even more sinister is the fact that we have a head of state that has demonstrated over and over that he despises America and what it represents. He has stated from the very outset, that he purposed to “Fundamentally Transform America.” And he's well succeeding in doing just that. We will end up with an America that is unrecognizable to the America our founders gave us.
What can be deduced from a statement such as this? Let’s begin with the word transform; this, of course, means to alter, transfigure, convert, i.e., diametrically change, or do away with. Now, what is to be the object of the altering; the transfiguring – the doing away with? This is the crux of the matter. So the word which is the object of change is Fundamental, and what is America fundamentally predicated upon? Well, it’s very simple. It is, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights.” And there you have it, this is the focal point of his hate, for this is the foundation upon which America came into being. If the foundations be destroyed – where will that leave us? “And what shall the righteous do?”
I have been pointing out certain degrees, levels, plateaus of the sinister activities. It gets even worse. It has recently come to my attention that some religious figure told his congregation that what Obama is doing is good things for America. In other words this “man of God” considers it to be a good thing for Obama to destroy the foundations and principles, ordained by God, in the establishing of this nation. Moreover, what about all the people who turn on the boob tube to listen to him, and also those who flock to this place of “worship” to hear this tripe? What about them?
Most people have a scale of 1 to 10 for evaluating things; I also have one of those, but I also have an additional one which runs from zero to minus 10. The things I've presented in the preceding paragraphs make up some of the things which I place on that second scale. It is hard to assess the evil of such a mindset as to its portent, and what it suggests for our future as a nation. It is a mindset which I hold in contempt, scorn, revulsion, actually, it is beneath that – it has quite a ways to go to get up to that level. I just don’t know the term that would place it where it belongs.
Okay, let’s sum up. Considering what I have presented here, we are plagued with Congressmen and Senators who, for the most part, see nothing wrong with supporting legislation which will aid Obama in his quest to “Fundamentally Transform America." However, when we consider the SEA OF SHEEPLE which they came from, it is somewhat understandably. How can we expect them to be very much above what they came from?
This is a situation which poses for us a dilemma rolled up in an enigma, or maybe it’s the other way around. The reason we have the problem with our legislators can be attributed to our uninformed and misinformed electorate. How do we solve that problem inasmuch as the electorate is made up of the sheeple? The failure of government education has put us in this situation, and we are now facing the third generation of young people purposely being dumbed down. They have no idea whatsoever of the Constitution, the American Revolution, the freedoms and liberties which have been fought for by American soldiers for multiple decades.
The term "Sheeple" I am borrowing from an article by Devvy Kidd, “What are You Going to do With the Sheeple?” which was written back in 2005 and is still pertinent for today!
