A What If From the Conspiracy Crazed Far Right...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth


Is it possible to explain delusions such as the following? Undoubtedly fear is a positive motivator, when it is rational. On the other hand irrational fear and fear mongering is a very dangerous. What you read in the following possibly ranks among the most irrational fear mongering published in some time.

Who among us thinks that, like the generation fresh from the triumphs of the last World War, our current self-serving politicos have the experience, moral probity and courage to face that choice of evils? Who is honestly sure that they aren’t already preparing an exit strategy that leaves their own factional power intact, even if America is no longer free?

What if Obama isn’t looking to his “legacy”? What if the threat of nuclear devastation he helps to arm with this agreement (an America-hating Iran with nuclear bombs) is to be brandished, along with a related threat from ongoing terrorist uprisings on U.S. soil, to create the exigent circumstances needed to justify imposing martial law throughout the United States and a plausible excuse for demanding that Obama remain in office until the emergency passes?

There it is. The unthinkable scenario predicated upon the thought that Barack Obama and those who lifted him to power are precisely what they appear to be – the enemies of America’s power, its prosperity, its constitutional liberty, its moral strength, indeed of everything about America except their own boundless ambition. Why is it at all inconceivable that people willing to collude with and arm our boldest enemies may be doing so for the sake of their own power? Why should we be unwilling to ponder the possibility that the Obama faction has agreed to help Iran achieve hegemony in the Middle East in order to help themselves to dictatorial control over the United States? What certainty do we have that, in some secret, back-channel codicil, this agreement is not already in place?

Note that this question isn’t just about Obama. It’s about the elitist faction that lifted him to power. It’s about their true objective, which is to overturn the exceptional constitutional sovereignty of the American people. It’s about the goal of restoring the norm of elitist tyranny characteristic of human governments throughout the history of the world. From this perspective, the only true friends of the American people are those who embrace and strive to implement the principles of right that justify their constitutional sovereignty. Isn’t it long past time consider a strategy that unites such friends in its defense?

You may believe a coup d’├ętat “could never happen here.” But the danger we face is not some beer hall putsch. It’s is more like the consolidation of tyrannical power Hitler’s faction completed after he was appointed chancellor of Germany. But if such a denouement is already in view for the United States, isn’t it urgently necessary to begin doing what must be done to prevent its completion? As food for urgent thought, I will propose such a strategy in the next article to be published on my blog. Are you willing to think about it yet?

Alan Keyes, WND

  1. From the same Alan Keyes who lost a Senate race to future Pres Barack Obama.

    You're right Les, fear of the unknown as certain groups lose power is a big reason for views like this.

  2. Desperate delusions call for desparate speculations. The idoicy of Alan Keyes knows no bounds.

  3. It's heartening to see the reaction by most conservatives. Possibly, with the ubiquity of movie cameras all over society, as mentioned in the comments, we will see fewer of these sorts of happenings in the future as police are more aware of possibility of being spotted.

  4. Must be a "jealousy" thing. Keyes garnered only 27% of the vote when he ran against Obama. Too bad about Alan Keyes. Obviously a gifted writer with an overactive imagination, he could have put his talents to better use if didn't have such a mega amygdala.

    If memory serves, the establishment candidate against Obama would have been Jack Ryan, who was forced to quit on account of a sex scandal. He cheated on his wife, who was known for playing Seven-of-Nine in the Star Trek series. Had Ryan remained in the race, there's a chance all voters of Illinois would now belong to the Borg Collective.

    1. Exactly. tentacled one. Keyes is a has-been and a never-been even among conservatives.

  5. The Borg are a civilisation of cyborgs (hence the name "Borg") which seek to conquer or "perfect" all life, siezing other lifeforms, technology, vessels, planets, and even entire star systems by force, enslaving them. Their goal is to raise the quality of life for all species, allowing them to achieve the Borg's vision of the perfect all-knowing, indomitable race. Deeming their own motivations of conquest to be of pure benevolence thus disregarding all associated morality. Their true origin remains a mystery however some thousands of years ago they begun their conquest of capturing and incorporating (or "assimilating") the technology and life forms of all captured races into their own resulted in the most immensely, powerful civilization the galaxy has ever known.

    Is an anathema for all truly liberty and freedom loving individuals.

  6. Let’s put Alan Keyes to the Borg test. According to his electoral history, this is how he fared:

    Maryland Senate campaign 1992 – Mikulski 71%, Keyes 29%
    GOP convention – Bush 4,328 delegates, Keyes 6 delegates
    Illinois Senate campaign 2004 – Obama 70%, Keyes 27%

    Now let’s parse his words against these electoral results:

    Keyes: “America is no longer free ..."

    If these elections were free, and Twenty-Seven-of-Seventy lost fair and square, why is America no longer free?

    Keyes: “It’s about the elitist faction … their true objective, which is to overturn the exceptional constitutional sovereignty of the American people.

    But, but … I thought the voters exercised their “constitutional sovereignty” by a huge margin. Are all voting majorities an “elitist fraction”? How foolish of me to overlook this point!

    Keyes: “It’s is more like the consolidation of tyrannical power Hitler’s faction completed after he was appointed chancellor of Germany.

    Oh noze! Not that Godwin fallacy again! As the Borg always warn: “Resistance is futile.”

    Keyes: “I will propose such a strategy [meaning a ‘coup d’etat’] in the next article ... Are you willing to think about it yet?

    Sure thing! If the Borg were to assimilate all those clowns riding in the clown car, they would be the biggest comedy act in the Galaxy.

  7. Here's the real deal for me.

    1) Demagoguery, whether from right or left is very offensive and dangerous when listened to ad followed.

    2) Keyes is every bit as much a demagogue as is Ted Cruz.

    3) Do we really need people of this sort guiding our nation or setting an example for our democratic republic in the 21st century.

    4) People who understand what true liberty and freedom mean can neither tolerate these fellows or Vladimir Lenin, Mao, Che Guevara, or Hugo Chavez et all... or Net-an-Yahoo

    Clowns have proliferated the globe since the beginning and likely will continue to do so for, well, until our sun goes cold.

    Two things seem to be eternal truths< a) humans fail to learn from history, therefore history repeats itself, Things never seem to change.

    NOW, for dinner and a few brews with the family.

    1. As Hannah Arendt once observed, a disciplined minority of totalitarians can use the instruments of democratic government to undermine democracy itself. Since free speech is one of those instruments, there is little we can do without turning ourselves into totalitarians.

      Since your stalwart cephalopod is in a reasonably good mood today, I refer to the Keyes Collective as the "clown car" just for laughs. Better than calling it the "Crazy Train" which would drive me crazy. In any event, I am not alarmed by Keyes because he is too marginal to be truly dangerous. Frankly, I put Cruz in the same category - just another passenger in the clown car. The truly dangerous ones are the stealth totalitarians - the ones who work behind the scenes and have really big money in their pockets with the power to pull lots of strings. These are the ones I worry about.

    2. There is also the possibility of the tyranny of the majority; however, that is a subject for another day. At this juncture in the "maturing process"of our democratic republic I must acknowledge the validity of your arguments.

      Since your rational humanoid is in a relatively great mood tonight I must state I actually prefer the term Crazy Train because in my humble estimation that is precisely what it is.

      As for Cruz, he is angling to be the leader of the Crazy Train and he just might be the person if nominated ,might cause me to actually vote for Hillary. And yes, I CANNOT BELIEVE I ACTUALLY SAID THAT!

    3. RN: Hillary's legacy of crimes and secrecy (including recently being caught hiding/destroying emails related to her Federal position), I think, will doom her chances of even getting the nomination.

      I doubt I would vote for her over Cruz... but Cruz would give me pause. I am not impressed with him one bit. You never known when he might recite "Hop on Pop" at the inauguration.

    4. IMO, dmarks, she will get the nomination-what other Dem would have a chance? Biden?
      Warren? Sanders? True, being a president's wife, a Senator and a Secretary of State carries some baggage, but like the Clinton Foundation mid east donations (the foundation
      does a lot of things the Saudis don't like), most are molehills and fodder for the far RW.
      Dunno about the Cruz Foundation.

  8. Regarding the -"maturing process" of our democratic republic- there is reason to believe that
    Spengler's 'Decline Of The West' and Jacoby's 'The Age Of American Unreason' may be no longer
    prescient, but incipient. We lucky ancient ones.

    While it certainly is not popular among my fiscally conservative brethren I must acknowledge that you are likely quite correct BB Idaho.
