What to make of this
? It was linked by Instapundit, and I think wrongly.
The Obama administration, including his czars and along with his closets Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America. He is using the media to his advantage to garner both sympathy and support for his unfinished goals. He is desperately seeking a way to remain in office, even if it means the surreal prospect of an indefinite postponement of elections - if it can be pulled off. So far, he’s got the support of the majority of the DHS “brass” behind him, according to my source.
Read the whole thing. I don't link to it either to cast light on extremely far-right-wing paranoia or to agree with the substance. No, I want to talk about a couple of "tells" in CTs (conspiracy theories).
The first tell is a long windup. This draws you down a tunnel, and usually you find yourself feeling the world has gotten smaller somehow.
But the big tell is this one -- the cast of characters is all the usual suspects: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberger, "the Jews," one world government types. A good CT will usually find it irresistible to include all sorts of suspects, to include as wide a range of characters as possible.
A little like when World Nut Daily said the U.S. was to suffer a nuclear terroristic attack, the Islam-terrorist-acquired weapon from Russia was to be smuggled over our southern border by illegal Mexican immigrants who were to be given safe passage by the drug cartels. (I think a recent movie was based on this scenario, but the movie was much better.)
Or when the M-I complex used the CIA and funded by Texas-oilman to enlist Mob-connected anti-Castro Cubans to set up pro-Castro Lee Harvey Oswald to shoot JFK so the U.S. could have LBJ as president so he could enter the Vietnam War.
It just hits all the hot buttons.
Here's the real conspiracy: The devil wants our souls. He wants to sow discord, puff up our pride, flatter our vanity, dehumanize others, addict us to negativity and carnal desires, and finally to tear each other to pieces out of suspicion, hatred and delusion.
God wants to purchase you with the ransom He earned on the cross. He wants us to remember our common humanity and our home in Him, and to love one another, even those who wish us ill. Pray for our enemies and do good to him that harms you ... and all that. Love to the point of mockery, pain and even crucifixion. That's the Christian message, and it's always been the Christian message. Christians are called to love and suffering.
Our enemies are what they've always been: addiction, suspicion, hatred, self-seeking -- sin, sickness, evil and death.
