Power Mad Obama Offers Two Choices: Unconditional Surrender Or Default

Obama SleepingBarack Obama is warning that if he does not get everything that he wants that he will force the U.S. government into a devastating debt default which will cripple the entire global economy.  In essence, Obama has become so power mad that he is actually willing to take the entire planet hostage in order to achieve his goals.  A lot of people are blaming the government shutdown on the Republicans, but they have already voted to fund the entire government except for Obamacare.  The U.S. Constitution requires that all spending bills originate in the House of Representatives, and the House did their duty by passing a spending bill.  If the Senate or the President do not like the bill that the House has passed, then negotiations need to take place.  That is how our system works.  And the weak-kneed Republicans have already indicated that they are willing to give up virtually all of their prior demands.  In fact, if Obama offered all of them 20 dollar gift certificates to Denny's to end this crisis they would probably jump at that deal.  But that is not good enough for Obama.  He has made it clear that he will settle for nothing less than the complete and unconditional surrender of the Republican Party.

Why is Obama doing this?  Why is Obama willing to bring the country to the brink of financial disaster?

It isn't hard to figure out.  Just check out what one senior Obama administration official said last week...

"We are winning.... It doesn't really matter to us" how long the shutdown lasts "because what matters is the end result," a senior Obama Administration official told the Wall Street Journal last week.

This is all about a political victory and crushing the Republicans.  Obama doesn't really care how long this crisis lasts because he believes that he is getting the end result that he wants.

According to Obama, the Republican Party is just supposed to roll over and give him the exact spending bill that he wants and also give him another trillion dollar increase in the debt limit.

If the Republicans do not give him that, he is willing to plunge us into financial oblivion.

The funny thing is that most Americans do not want the debt limit increased.  According to one new poll, 58 percent of all Americans do not even want the debt ceiling to be increased by a single penny.

And recent polls show that Americans are against Obamacare by an average margin of about 10 percent.

But the pathetic Republican Party is actually willing to hand Obama a trillion dollar debt ceiling increase and fully fund Obamacare if Obama will at least give them something.

Unfortunately, Obama won't even give them the time of day.

So don't blame the Republicans for what is happening.  The Republicans have already compromised themselves to the point of utter disgrace.  If Obama had been willing to even compromise a couple of inches this entire crisis would already be over.

And nobody should be claiming that the Republicans won't vote to end this shutdown.  They have already voted to end it.  The following is from a recent article by Thomas Sowell...

There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all the money required to keep all government activities going -- except for ObamaCare.

This is not a matter of opinion. You can check the Congressional Record.

As for the House of Representatives' right to grant or withhold money, that is not a matter of opinion either. You can check the Constitution of the United States. All spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives, which means that Congressmen there have a right to decide whether or not they want to spend money on a particular government activity.

Whether ObamaCare is good, bad or indifferent is a matter of opinion. But it is a matter of fact that members of the House of Representatives have a right to make spending decisions based on their opinion.

Once again, the Republicans have already indicated that they are willing to fund Obamacare.  They just want Obama to throw them a bone.

And Obama will not do it.

So either the Republicans are going to cave in completely (a very real possibility) or we are going to pass the "debt ceiling deadline".

What happens then?

Well, we would have more of a "real government shutdown" than the fake shutdown that we are having right now.

Once the federal government cannot borrow any more money, it will only be able to spend what it actually has on hand.  That means that a lot more government functions will have to shut down.

Money will still be coming in to the government, but it won't be enough to fund everything.  According to the Wall Street Journal, the federal government will still have enough money to pay interest on the debt, make Social Security payments, make Medicare payments, make Medicaid payments, provide food stamp benefits and pay the military if they cut almost everything else out.

The other day, I suggested that the federal government could potentially start defaulting on interest payments on the debt as early as November.  But that would only happen if the federal government manages their money foolishly.

If the federal government managed their money smartly and saved cash for the interest payments as they came due, they would not have to miss any.

But when was the last time the federal government ever did anything "smartly"?

For the sake of argument, however, let's assume that the federal government can manage money wisely and can save up enough cash ahead of time for large interest payments as they come due.

If that could somehow be managed, then according to Paul Mampilly the government would never need to actually default...

The U.S. Treasury always has money coming into its accounts. So its always got some amount of cash that it can use to pay interest on bonds. That's especially true right now because the government is partially shutdown and there's no cash going out from its accounts.

In fact, when you look at it the U.S. Treasury should simply have no trouble making interest payments on bonds that it has issued.

And there's no restriction on the U.S. Treasury prioritizing interest payments. Why?

The obligation to pay interest is set by the 1917 Second Liberty Bond Act and laws that commanded the Treasury to pay interest on the debt. You can look this up in section 3123 of Title 31 of the U.S. Code and section 4 of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution and in Supreme Court precedent (Perry v. United States). It's all there in black and white.

So the only possible way the U.S. defaults on its debt is if Barack Obama, President of the United States, instructs his Treasury secretary Jack Lew to default on the debt.

And according to the Washington Post, Moody's has just issued a memo that also indicates that the federal government should be able to make all interest payments even if the debt limit is not increased...

In a memo being circulated on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Moody’s Investors Service offers "answers to frequently asked questions" about the government shutdown, now in its second week, and the federal debt limit. President Obama has said that, unless Congress acts to raise the $16.7 trillion limit by next Thursday, the nation will be at risk of default.

Not so, Moody’s says in the memo dated Oct. 7.

"We believe the government would continue to pay interest and principal on its debt even in the event that the debt limit is not raised, leaving its creditworthiness intact," the memo says. "The debt limit restricts government expenditures to the amount of its incoming revenues; it does not prohibit the government from servicing its debt. There is no direct connection between the debt limit (actually the exhaustion of the Treasury’s extraordinary measures to raise funds) and a default."

Of course the federal government would have to stop throwing money around like a drunk gambler at a casino in Las Vegas in order for this to work.

On the very first day of the government shutdown, the feds gave $445 million to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.  Apparently Elmo is considered to be "essential personnel" by the Obama administration.

And according to CNS News, the U.S. Army has committed more than $47,000 to buy a mechanical bull during this "shutdown"...

The government shutdown may be keeping furloughed federal workers at home, but on Monday the U.S. Army contracted to buy a mechanical bull.

The $47,174 contract was awarded on Oct. 7 to Mechanical Bull Sales Inc. of State College, Penn.

So needless to say, there is some serious doubt about whether the federal government would be able to manage their money effectively in the event that the debt ceiling deadline passes.

And if the U.S. did start defaulting on debt payments, it would be absolutely disastrous for the global economy as I discussed in a previous article...

"A U.S. debt default would cause stocks to crash, would cause bonds to crash, would cause interest rates to soar wildly out of control, would cause a massive credit crunch, and would cause a derivatives panic that would be absolutely unprecedented.  And that would just be for starters."

Other nations that we depend upon to lend us money would stop lending to us and would start dumping U.S. debt instead.

Could you imagine what would happen if China started dumping a large portion of the 1.3 trillion dollars in U.S. debt that they are holding?

It would be a total nightmare.  The collapse of Lehman Brothers would pale in comparison.

And already some banks are stuffing their ATM machines with extra cash just in case the general public starts to panic.

But none of this has to happen.

If Obama decides to negotiate with the Republicans, this crisis will likely end very rapidly.

If not, and we pass the "debt ceiling deadline", the federal government will still have enough money to make interest payments on the debt as long as they manage their money correctly.

Unfortunately, Obama seems far more interested in playing political games than he is in solving our problems.

In fact, Park Service rangers have been ordered to "make life as difficult for people as we can" during this government shutdown.  Obama has apparently decided to punish the American people in order to get leverage on the Republicans.  Just check out the following example from a new Weekly Standard article...

There’s a cute little historic site just outside of the capital in McLean, Virginia, called the Claude Moore Colonial Farm. They do historical reenactments, and once upon a time the National Park Service helped run the place. But in 1980, the NPS cut the farm out of its budget. A group of private citizens set up an endowment to take care of the farm’s expenses. Ever since, the site has operated independently through a combination of private donations and volunteer workers.

The Park Service told Claude Moore Colonial Farm to shut down.

The farm’s administrators appealed this directive​—​they explained that the Park Service doesn’t actually do anything for the historic site. The folks at the NPS were unmoved. And so, last week, the National Park Service found the scratch to send officers to the park to forcibly remove both volunteer workers and visitors.

Think about that for a minute. The Park Service, which is supposed to serve the public by administering parks, is now in the business of forcing parks they don’t administer to close. As Homer Simpson famously asked, did we lose a war?

The hypocrisy that Obama has demonstrated during this "government shutdown" has been astounding.

He has barricaded open air war memorials to keep military veterans from visiting them, but he temporarily reopened the National Mall so that a huge pro-immigration rally that would benefit him politically could be held.

He has continued to fund al-Qaeda rebels in Syria that are trying to overthrow the Syrian government, but he has been withholding death benefits from families of fallen U.S. soldiers.

The conduct of the Obama administration during this shutdown has been so egregious that is hard to put into words.  Obama has chosen to purposely harm the American people in order to score political points.

But this is how our politicians view us these days.  As Monty Pelerin recently explained, most of our politicians have absolutely no problem with exploiting us for their own purposes...

The concept of political service has been replaced by that of masked exploitation. The public is no longer viewed as clients or constituents to be served. Instead they have become political prey. Politicians see the public as a collection of wallets and votes, fair game to be hunted as the means to expand power and wealth. Constituents are now the Soylent Green of the political food chain.

The political class assumes the public exists to serve them, not the other way around. Public participation beyond the lightening of wallets or the provision of votes is unwelcome. It is considered “interference” that must be deterred by the ruling class.

The political class is now a huge, voracious parasite. Like the plant in the Little Shop of Horrors, its needs have grown to the point where it threatens anything productive. Its needs now exceed the willingness for continued sacrifice on the part of the productive. The parasite threatens the very existence of the host.

The political Ponzi scheme of tax, borrow and spend has reached its limit. Either it will die when citizens turn on it or it will kill the productive, ensuring its own destruction.

It perishes in the end. Whether it takes civilization with it is the bigger question.

Is there anyone out there that still does not believe that our system is broken?

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and power mad Obama will decide to toss the Republicans a few crumbs and this crisis will be resolved.

Because if this crisis is not resolved soon, it could have consequences that are far beyond what any of us could possibly imagine.

    Trust me when I tell you that Obama is not the antichrist. He does not fit the criteria according to the Holy Scriptures. The antichrist of bible prophecy is a man of war, of fierce countenance. who conquers all nations. Not this wimp. However I do believe he is an apostle of the NWO. Doing exactly what He has been chosen to do.

      Good points. If Obama were the Antichrist, I’d be less worried about upcoming end-time events.

  • Bruce

    NO DOUBT the debt limit WILL be raised, even if only temporarily. The powers that be WILL NOT let this thing collapse and then reset. If it were to do so they’d lose all their power and control. Even the extinction of the Federal Reserve would be possibe under that scenario.That they WILL NOT allow. Without quetion the debt ceilng will be raised.
    If we were to collapse and reset it would be TOUGH for many people for several years. But, after that we would get the train set back up and on the right track.

    How to Turn the Economy Around?

    I believe the first thing to be done is to abolish the Federal Reserve. It is owned by and operated for the benefit of the biggest banks in the world. Its sole purpose has been to enrich the few at the expense of the many through its insidious use of inflation and debt issuance. It has been around for less than 100 years and has debased the USD by 96%. The
    U.S. Treasury has the authority to issue the currency of the country. It did so from 1789 until 1913.

Go look up Who is Michael la Vaughn Robinson, also a few weeks ago the new pope gave a speech he said the catholic community should be more open to homosexuals and abortions. Obama works for the pope to bring in the dark ages and the anti Christ.

      Please check your facts. The Pope never said we should be more open to abortion. He simply stated that more emphasis needs to be placed on the good and positive aspects of the Church, its works and its message. As far as gays are concerned the Vatican has long held the position that you can be accepting and inclusive of all people even those whose behaviors you do not agree with.

    Stop hating on Obama! This article is based on the false premise that Obama is responsible for the shutdown, and that Obama has demands. On the contrary, it’s the republicans who are refusing to co-operate: Obama and the democrats want to end the shutdown, but the republicans have a wish list of demands that they want to have fulfilled. They say that the shutdown will continue until their demands are met. Want they want is crazy: None of us want deregulation and loosening of environmental laws–but that’s one of the republicans’ demands. None of their demands is desirable for the vast majority of the country. Obama is right to stand up to these guys and you should be proud of him.

    It’s the republicans who are holding the world hostage and it’s not even about Obamacare:

    Obamacare is essentially Romneycare. Mitt Romney put this into place in Massachusetts whilst governor there. And it’s working well, thus far. Obama is simply expanding Romneycare country-wide!

    In fact, the Affordable Health Care Act (“Obamacare”) was developed by Republicans in the 1990s, when the Clinton administration was trying to get single-payer health care for the country. The Affordable Health Care Act was the Republicans’ alternative to the single-payer universal health care proposed by Clinton and the Democrats.

    This pirate government is broke and everyone knows it. You cannot steal anymore of our money. We are trillions and trillions of dollars broke. SHUTDOWN the Dept of Energy, SHUTDOWN the Dept. of Education. SHUTDOWN the IRS. ETC., ETC We should be able to complete our taxes on a 4X6 index card. Harvest responsibly our mega supply of God given energy resources. THE GOP is a limp extension of the Democratic Party. OB has been a disaster and anyone contributing to this nation knows it. This OB admin has been riddled with scandal and his signature OB care is his legacy. Despite the fact it is government run healthcare which 70% of the nation does not want, resulting in horrible affects on the economy and it’s real goal is for this piracy government to takeover 1/6 of the economy, i.e. the healthcare industry. If this country is still standing in 2016, let’s get behind Allen West and Ted Cruz, RIGHT NOW !. They are pre-vetted by their conservative record of action. It will take true RWB Constitutional Conservatives like these men to save this nation. They have earned our respect, dedication, loyalty and vote. Run them as Tea Party candidates and screw the Republican Party. The GOP is a popsicle stick standing against a tsunami of left wing ideology. The hour glass of extinction ticks on ! Christi Fidelis !!

    • Gay Veteran

      Allen West?!?!?!? the whackjob who got kicked out of the Army

      • EnjoyTheCollapse

        LTC West was honorably retired from the Army after more than 20 years service (though I agree his career was essentially over after his court martial acquittal).

        • Gay Veteran

          war criminal:

          “…In testimony at an Article 32 hearing — the military’s version of a grand jury or preliminary hearing — West said the policeman, Yahya Jhrodi Hamoody, was not cooperating with interrogators, so he watched four of his soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion beat the detainee on the head and body.

          West said he also threatened to kill Hamoody….”

          • EnjoyTheCollapse

            An Article 32 hearing is an investigative process in the military, similar to a civilian Grand Jury. It is not a criminal trial. West was never convicted of any war crimes and he was honorably retired from the Army. You don’t have to like the guy, or even respect him, but the facts in his case are what they are.

          • Gay Veteran

Colonel West served his country valiantly and is very good man with courage, conviction and patriotism well beyond your understanding. You reject God, our Judaio-Christian foundations and value system. You are an angry man and offer no solutions. Christi Fidelis !

        • Gay Veteran

          uh, guess you don’t understand sarcasm.
          I hold the Pentaon in very low esteem.
          Did you serve in the military? I’m guessing no, just like other yellow chickenhawks because any veteran would know that West committed a war crime.

          • TtT Engine

            Many are called, few are chosen. Serving in the military is not the only way to be a patriotic American. Serving in the military is not step one to canonization. Allen West was railroaded, just like most conservatives. Our military rules of engagement are a disgrace to the R/W/B. He is a warrior conservative and a good man. Watch your mouth ! This country is on borrowed time, everyone knows it. Hillary Clinton and Chris Christi/Ralph Kramden, is more of the same. Print, borrow, TAX and spend. I’m not sure Allen West and Ted Cruz can save the U.S.A. Titanic, but at least we would have a chance. WAKE UP, AMERICA, time is our enemy ! Christi Fidelis !!

          • Gay Veteran

            actually ANY person would know what West did was a war crime (and gee, even JESUS would know)

  • rickv404

    “If the Republicans do not give him that, he is willing to plunge us into financial oblivion.”

    I disagree. The government defaulting would not lead to “financial oblivion”. The government is not the economy. It leeches off the economy. Let it default. We’re still paying taxes, so what’s important for the federal government to do will get funded.

  • sharonsj

    It is Congress that decides to borrow and spend money, not Obama. It is Congress that sets the budget for the country, not Obama. And people who say let the government crash are too stupid to understand the ramifications.
