I would look at a few different areas: Economic upheaval, social unrest, etc. I think Obama, Jarret and Ayers are looking for an opportunity before the end of BHO's term to declare Marshal Law and "temporarily" suspend the Constitution or at least the Bill of Rights, in the name of national security. I would think they'd prefer a crisis in which Americans were actually demanding these actions, so that BHO would praised for instituting Marshal Law.

It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. As elsewhere reported, some of this purchase order is for rounds forbidden by international law for use in war plus a frightening amount specialized for snipers. Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending fewer than 6 million rounds a month. 1.6 billion rounds, therefore, would be enough...
