This was predicted by Glen Beck immediately after the 2008 election.

A highly troubling urgent bulletin issued earlier today by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) states that it has received information from the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) warning to expect aradical change in the government of the United States, possibly within the next fortnight, based on information they have received from highly placed sources within the Pentagon.
According to this MoFA bulletin, GRU intelligence assests were notified by their Pentagon counterparts this past week that President Barack Obama is preparing to invoke the powers given to him under 50 USC Chapter 13 to hold that various American States are now in a state of insurrection thus allowing him to invoke the National Emergencies Act under 50 USC § 1621 and invoke the highly controversialcontinuity of government plan for the United States allowing him, in essence, to rule with supreme powers.
Specifically, this bulletin says, Obama will invoke 50 USC § 212 that states: the President shall have declared by proclamation that the laws of the United States are opposed, and the execution thereof obstructed, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings
The specific laws being opposed by these combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, that Obama will outline in his reasonings for declaring a state of emergency, this bulletin continues, are the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), otherwise known as Obamacare...

The issue that most people know about is the employer mandate a loose term for a set of fines for businesses that dont cover their workers. Thats a big issue for small businesses that might be right on the edge of 50 workers.
Starting in 2015, any employer with the equivalent of 50 or more full-time workers will have to pay a $2,000 annual fine for each worker not counting the first 30 if they dont offer health coverage.

The latest House bill, which the chamber backed on a 228-201 vote, would have delayed the law's individual mandate while prohibiting lawmakers, their staff and top administration officials from getting government subsidies for their health care.
The Senate voted 54-46 along party lines to reject it.
Amid the drama, President Obama said he's holding out hope that Congress will come together "in the 11th hour." http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/09/30/bu...

"The NDAA is opposed by many US States, this bulletin says, with California joining Alaska and Virginia this past week in passing a law making it illegal to be enforced in their territory, and with many other States, also, preparing to do the same.
"The specific portions of the NDAA law being opposed by these US States allows for the indefinite detention without charges or trial of all American citizens and allows for their assassination should Obama order it.
"The PPACA (Obamacare) law is, likewise, opposed by over half of the US States and has led to an American shutdown this past week that has closed 15% of their government, but has left fully 85% of it still open."
Here's the bottom line:
The Democrats demand government control of everything. For this, they need to eliminate any controls (the Constitution) on their government. This requires unlimited spending, which Congress is an obstacle to that.
The government is obviously too large.
85 percent of the Obama government isn't enough to satisfy the Democrats. It's all or nothing.
The Democrats intend to destroy this country if they can't get what they want... which is actually the elimination of the constitutional republic.
In short, the Democrats are about to declare war on the American people, and slaughter them wholesale.
This has always been the plan. The massive arms buildup in the DHS whould have made that obvious. Putting the Muslim Brotherhood in top level positions in the DHS whould have made this doubly obvious.

#1 The Obama administration is doing all it can to keep
Americans from even getting a glimpse of Mount Rushmore, but
Barack Obamas chefs have been deemed essential and are still
preparing his meals .
#2 Small businesses cannot get loans, but the exclusive gyms that
are only for members of Congress have been deemed essential
andremain open .
#3 The National Mall has been closed to the public , but it will be
opened for a huge pro-immigration rally being held by Obama
#4 Last chance cancer treatments for children with cancer have
been suspended, but the IRS continues to collect taxes from us.
#5 The NIH has stopped therapy dogs from visiting sick children,
but Obama and Congress are still getting paid.
#6 The USDA website has been shut down, but Michelle
Obamas Lets Move website is still operating.
#7 A runner has been fined $100 for jogging through Valley Forge
National Historical Park, but the military golf course that Obama
uses regularly is still open .
#8 The Obama administration has shut down the Grand Canyon,
but the new two billion dollar NSA spy center is still spying on all
of us .
#9 The federal government has forced an elderly couple out of
their home on Lake Mead during this shutdown, but the
operations of the Federal Reserve have not been affected at all.
#10 In South Carolina, the Obama administration is actually using
Park Service rangers to keep people away from a privately-owned
#11 In Tennessee, the feds have totally shut down the Foothills
Parkway, a major thoroughfare that runs through Blount County.
At this point the feds are not even letting people visit the graves of
their dead relatives.
#12 The Obama administration has actually removed all of the
well pumps along a 184 mile trail that goes from Washington D.C.
to Pittsburgh just so that anyone that decides to use the trail will
not be able to get any water to drink.
#13 The Obama administration is actually attempting to
close 1,100 square miles of ocean off of the coast of Florida. It is
going to take a tremendous amount of time, money and energy to
keep fishing boats out of that area.
#14 According to one news report,Gestapo tactics were used
against one tour group made up mostly of senior citizens at
Yellowstone National Park
Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to
showcase some of Americas greatest treasures.
Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus
witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and
heartbroken for her country.
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found
themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown
went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which
included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and
the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park
hotel under armed guard.
The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she
said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited
English skills thought they were under arrest.
When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at
all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at
private bathrooms that were open along the route.
#15 Of course one of the most disturbing abuses of power is how
the Obama administration is using barricades and guards to keep
military veterans away from open air memorials such as the
World War II Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial and the Iwo
Jima Memorial that are normally open to the public 24 hours a

What is the point of having a debt ceiling if you keep increasing the limit?
#998725 Oct 9, 2013
By Elahe Izadi
October 8, 2013
While talk over the government shutdown and the debt ceiling raged inside the Capitol, outside a number of Democratic lawmakers were getting arrested in what they dubbed as an act of civil disobedience.
Reps. Luis Gutierrez, Keith Ellison, Joseph Crowley, Al Green, and John Lewis were among the arrested, as crowds bellowed Si se puede! The arrested, including other protesters, were led away in zip-wire handcuffs by Capitol Police, which have been on the job but forgoing pay since the government shut down. It was all a planned portion of a massive immigration rally that began on the National Mall on Tuesday morning. Organizers estimated 20,000 protesters attended at the peak of the rally.
The lawmakers will each need to post a $50 fine, and there will likely be an Ethics Committee report generated as a result of the incident, according to one aide. The exact reason for their arrests is not yet known.
House Democrats introduced last week an immigration proposal that would remove a controversial border security measure from a comprehensive bill approved by the Senate in June.http://www.nationaljourna l.com/congress/police-arrest-c ongressmen-protesters-at-immig ration-rally-outside-capitol-2 0131008

Ex-GOP insider unloads: Blame neo-Confederate insurrectionists for shutdown!
"I would take Boehner drunk over Cruz sober," former 28-year GOP staffer-turned-author Mike Lofgren tells Salon
So in the lead-up to the shutdown and the way its played out so far, what if anything has surprised you?
Nothing. Of course the media is kind of covering it like the Michigan-Ohio State game, and love anything with a countdown clock or supposed suspense and all this other crap, and the easy visuals of some park service guy putting up a sawhorse at the Jefferson Memorial. None of that surprised me.[But] this is not something happening according to exigent circumstances or happenstance. This is something that the GOP wanted.
And Ill say this: I am not an Obama partisan. I have many bones to pick with him, including the healthcare bill. If your intent was to insure as many people as possible, youd have single payer. You also wouldnt pay off big Pharma and the insurance companies. That said, the difference between what Obama and the Republicans are doing is like the difference between stomach upset and galloping Ebola.
These people are basically neo-Confederate insurrectionists. They are in substantive rebellion against the orderly government of the country. And one of the things I noticed and its something thats very common in human beings we all try to mollify or appease the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving dinner. You know,Dont make a scene. Well, I noticed in the last few years of my service on the Hill that a number of Democrats seemed to be afraid of Republicans. And Obama pretty much wasted his first term trying to mollify them. I think hes finally stumbled upon a strategy thats better: simply not give them what they demand. Because this is a deliberate strategy to hold the government hostage.
he's right. Obama will not give them what they want and has no reason to. he's given them enough. the Dems in Congress have given them enough. the deserve nothing else except scorn.

You're arrogance to think you know anything about the African America culture is appalling! That's like the child of a slave telling a slave they're lazy! I don't want to hear about your upbringing or, any of that. Your shitty existence of a life came with more privileges than 90% of black people. You talk about black men abandoning their families. Maybe if more white people left before shit for too bad, the white race would hold such a high percentage of America's suicides in America. Your ideology is " ignore all the biases held against the black race, point the finger of blame as if we're all weighed on the same scales of life." Pop shit all you want. Anyone with a serviceable brain can tell you, your not even scratching the surface.

The Democrats already voted to fund all of this stuff.
Republicans aid they would fund it only if the ACA was defunded & delayed.
You really need to pull your head out of your ass & blame the party that shut down the funding.
You people are beyond pathetic.
