Listened to the podcast of Mark Levin’s show tonight(10/3/2013) and heard something very interesting.
All of the following is Levin’s take on the government shutdown.
There’s no transcript so I’m going to do the best I can.
What is Obama’s endgame? The clue is in Obama’s repeated use of the word ‘default’ in his recent interviews. The Dems and Obama keep repeating the story that the Repubs are crazy. That they have a ‘gun to the head’ of the country. That they are ‘holding America hostage.’ Obama is setting up the idea that “I have no choice but to take matters into my own hands to save the country.” His plan is to push the shutdown until mid October when the debt ceiling will be reached. He will then deliberately mix Authorization laws with Appropriation laws. The Senate will back him. Americans are too ignorant of the law to understand the difference and the MSM will say Obama is doing the right thing. He will then declare that it is his Constitutional duty to see that the nations bills are paid. He will issue an Executive Order increasing the debt limit. He has no authority to do this. It will be a blatantly impeachable offense but the Repubs will not be able to impeach him. The Dems will back him as a solid unit and the Power of the Purse will be transferred to the Executive branch. The MSM will say he is a hero. The Constitution will be irreparably shredded. The system of Checks and Balances will no longer exist. The Constitutional Republic will be destroyed. He will fundamentally change the United States.
Here is a link to the podcast:
You will have to listen to a 1 minute ad and then the show will start. The part I’m referring to begins at 30 mins in.
Make sure you are listening to the 10/3/2013 show.
