After the 2016 Elections

February 14, 2014

U.S. in 5 years

Wish i could say, “It’s been a quiet week”, but it seems like it’s been more than a couple of decades now that we’ve been under this slow, steady attack.  The ignorance of my youth, when I held a firm belief that we as a country, as a people, were doing just fine, is greatly missed.  The knowing of  what’s behind this attack, weighs heavily on my old bones, and the suspicion about the required remedy weighs even more.

Starting with this story, we have a good guess about the nature of the coming summer of politicking.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh went “out on a limb” and predicted Wednesday that the 2014 midterms will be a “wave election like 2010.”

“I think the people of this country are gonna sweep Democrats out of office every chance they get, every opportunity they get — and I think there’s plenty of evidence for it right now,” Limbaugh said. “You don’t have Henry Waxman and these people retiring unless they know.”

Mix that with this week’s story from Venezuela, which if you regularly read just a little about that place, you’ll know that’s us five years in the future.  Maybe less.

CARACAS, Venezuela, Feb. 13 (UPI) —
Three people were shot dead and 23 were wounded in anti-regime violence in Caracas, officials said, amid escalating Venezuelan unrest over economic hardships.

Protesters have been calling for Maduro to resign and complaining about economic hardships, soaring crime and rampant corruption for the past two weeks.

In the Caracas violence, which started in the afternoon, several hundred protesters, mostly young men, fought with police. The violence persisted into the night.

Protesters threw stones, bottles and Molotov cocktails, set police cars and tires on fire, and blocked a main thoroughfare, while riot squads responded with tear gas and nightsticks, El Pais and NTN24 said.

The dead included a pro-government activist and an anti-government student, Attorney General Luisa Ortega Diaz said. A third young man also died of a gunshot wound later Wednesday, said Ramon Muchacho, the mayor of Caracas’ upscale Chacao district.

At least 23 people were injured, authorities said.

More than 30 people were arrested, Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres told reporters.

He said those who were arrested wore hooded sweatshirts and carried “bags with Molotov cocktails, rocks and other objects to attack police.”

Rodriguez Torres called the hostility “a premeditated act of violence against police and against the Venezuelan people.”

NTN24, the only broadcaster showing live video of the violence, had the plug pulled on its cable signal, it said.

William Castillo, president of the government’s regulatory National Telecommunications Commission, said he ordered all cable providers to stop carrying the NTN24 signal because the broadcast “promoted violence,” which is “a crime,” El Pais reported.

NTN24 Director General Claudia Gurisatti called the suspension of its signal “censorship, a violation of the right of citizens to be informed and an attack on freedom of expression.”

Stir these two stories together and think past the pending 2014 elections, ending up with this prediction for what’s ahead after the 2016 elections:

The new President is sworn into office mid January, 2017.  The mix of a ruined economy, an appalling job market, wide-spread loss of medical services, and a crushing national debt, starts to sink into the little pumkin heads of the sheeple that were fed “Hope and Change” for nearly a decade. Finally, they are not happy.    And they have a new-found focus.  Not on the fact that the most corrupt government in their history knowingly did this to them, but that now, the government is not delivering on those promises.  By April, 2017, we will have violent protests in the streets, the likes as we have not seen in 50 years, organized and funded by the same organizations that supported the last administration.  The mechanisms for control, put into place by previous presidents since Nixon, will  get switched on in an effort to minimize the violence.  Cell phone “metadata”, collected by the government, will be used to identify and track those people participating in rioting, and social media will be monitored to identify those people working to support planning and operation of the riots.  Face recognition, license plate readers and drones will be used to follow the organizers back to their centers of planning and plotting.  And then the MRAPs and SWAT teams come into play at 0400.

Those of you in the “Patriot Community”, who had made extensive plans and preps to either fight the government and/or the zombie hoards, may become awestruck spectators as you watch those same forces implode against each other without any effort on your part, felling ignored and left out.  Not what you had anticipated, exactly, but just maybe, some of you may still find brief “moments of opportunity” to stir the pot without being noticed.
