Was Obama’s Election an Economic Coup?
I have suspected for a long time and I openly told people in the fall of 2008 that certain entities were trying to harm the economy in order to ensure that Obama would get elected in the November elections. If you watched the stock markets in the months before the election of 2008, you saw these massive declines at the end of the day almost every day. These declines were by entities selling massive amounts of stock in what clearly looked like an attempt to sink the stock markets each day in time for the prime time news each night.
Now we have confirmation that there was a massive “run on the banks” by some unknown entity on September 18, 2008 in an effort to affect the election. Democratic Representative Paul Kanjorski (PA-11), Capital Market Subcommittee Chair in the US House of Representatives, describes this stealth bank panic in the video below (transcript follows).
I suspect there was an economic coup d’état in September of 2008 by extremely wealthy Liberals and Democrats and we simply were not smart enough to see it happen right in front of us. I also suspect that the plan succeeded in getting Obama elected but is now completely out of control.

“ Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.
Joseph Stalin "
“This is nothing more than a political land grab,” Congressman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said of Barack Obama’s Chicago-style political decision to bring the influential role of conducting the U.S. Census under White House influence.
This single act should end any further bipartisanship. Obama is executing raw power politics as taught by his role model, leftist Chicago organizer Saul Alinsky.
Alinsky pioneered this in-your-face style of political move.Practically this means that Rahm Emanuel, the White House Chief of Staff and the formerDemocratic congressional campaign chairman — who has tax problems, ethics problems and negotiated with impeached Gov. Rod Blagojevich — will be in charge of the process that determines congressional redistricting and the makeup of the Electoral College.
The census has tremendous political significance. Political parties are always eager to have a hand in redrawing congressional districts so that they can maximize their own party’s clout while minimizing the opposition, often through gerrymandering. This explains some of the bizarre, crazy-looking congressional district maps in America. The census decides how many congressional districts are in each state.
Experts note that the method of counting can significantly skew the census. The well-known college textbook, “How to Lie with Statistics,” comes to mind. Democrats advocate using mathematical estimates, a practice known as “sampling,” to count urban residents and immigrants.
Republicans say the constitution requires a physical head count, which entails going door-to-door and is much more accurate. As expected, the Democrats models overstate the population in urban areas, traditionally Democratic strongholds.
The census also determines the composition of the all-important Electoral College, which chooses the president. If one party controls the census, it could try to perpetuate its hold on political power.
The system we have is the result of a finely crafted compromise by our Founding Fathers when the constitution was drafted.
When Obama nominated New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson to be commerce secretary –who later withdrew for scandal reasons — he indicated that Richardson would be in charge of the census. All that changed with the nomination of New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg. Gregg, a Republican, favors actually counting individual citizens rather than using statistical samples and computer models. Therein lies the source of the debate.
So far the situation is still unresolved, Obama has yet to fill the commerce secretary post and the administration contends that they aren’t actually bringing the census inside the White House, quickly retracting an earlier White House statement. Either way, the most important issue at hand is the methodology of the census. This power play led to nominee Judd Gregg wisely removing his name from consideration for the post.
The Constitution is clear: “the actual Enumeration shall be made… ”, and enumeration means “to ascertain the number of, to count.” The Constitution is straightforward in setting up the purpose and practice of the census. America is supposed to count each person.
As detrimental as it would be to have a hardened operative such as Rahm Emanuel playing politics with the census, it will be just as damaging to have whomever Obama finally appoints as commerce secretary if they violate the
constitution by employing statistical sampling with the purpose of exaggerating the population count in urban areas.
If Obama and his Commerce Department bow to leftist pressure groups and trample the Constitution, our very democracy will be undermined. Our system of voting is a sacred trust. Attempts to manipulate that system violate that trust. This issue will be a test of Obama and the U.S. Constitution.
“The last thing the census needs is for any hard-bitten partisan (either a Karl Rove or a Rahm Emanuel) to manipulate these critical numbers. Many federal funding formulas depend on them, as well as the whole fabric of federal and state representation.
Partisans have a natural impulse to tilt the playing field in their favor, and this has to be resisted,” says Larry Sabato, the director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, in an e-mail to Fox News. “I’ve always remembered what Joseph Stalin said: ‘Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.’”
