King Obama the Insane — is Obama still living the big lie, or has he slipped round the bend?

Albert Einstein allegedly defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Austin O’Malley looked at the process of insanity: “A sane man often reasons from sound premises; an insane man commonly reasons as well, but the premises are unsound.” And Guy de Maupassant examined that peculiar phenomenon we now call monomania:

I have seen mad people, and I have known some who were quite intelligent, lucid, even clear-sighted in every concern of life, except on one point. They could speak clearly, readily, profoundly on everything; till their thoughts were caught in the breakers of their delusions and went to pieces there, were dispersed and swamped in that furious and terrible sea of fogs and squalls which is called MADNESS.

The common thread in these quotations is the fact that the insane person is disconnected from reality. He doesn’t understand cause and effect, his factual premises are ludicrous, and his inability to deal with reality may be centered a specific subject, so that he appears lucid as to other things.

With Obama’s most recent speech about the economy, the one in which he cited approvingly to an immediately discredited study claiming that he’s been one of the most frugal presidents in history, a new meme sprang up in the blogosphere — “Obama the Insane.”

Of course, no one has stated it with that level of clarity.  More and more writers, however, are commenting upon (1) Obama’s belief that if he keeps spending more and more money, he will magically reverse the fact that his existing spending binge has already caused inestimable harm to the U.S. economy; (2) his reliance on manifestly false facts; and (3) the way in which, even as he is cogent on other subjects (his family, rap parties, etc.), Obama’s focus on those things that most deeply affect Americans, such as the economy, foreign affairs, national security, bears no relationship to the facts on the ground.

Here are three respected writers, each of whom expresses serious concern about President Obama’s increasingly obvious disconnect from the reality of his presidency and his policies.

Peggy Noonan politely calls the presidency a “house of cards”:

There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration.

It became apparent some weeks ago when the president talked on the stump—where else?—about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth is actually lower than that of previous presidents. This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s presidency. People sneered: The president was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture! But you know, why would he go out there waving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.

Peter Ferrara is also dismayed by the President’s inability to recognize economic reality, although he believes the president is simply being deceptive. After quoting with approval the Noonan passage, above, Ferrara goes on to chide Obama for lying:

What this shows most importantly is that the recognition is starting to break through to the general public regarding the President’s rhetorical strategy that I’ve have been calling Calculated Deception. The latter is deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture. That has been a central Obama practice not only throughout his entire presidency, but also as the foundation of his 2008 campaign strategy, and actually throughout his whole career.

Rest assured, Ms. Noonan, that the President is not as nuts as he may seem at times. He knows very well that he is not a careful spender. His whole mission is to transform the U.S. not into a Big Government country, but a Huge Government country, because only a country run by a Huge Government can be satisfactorily controlled by superior, all wise and beneficent individuals like himself. That is why he is at minimum a Swedish socialist, if not worse. Notice, though, how far behind the times he and his weak minded supporters are, as even the Swedes have abandoned Swedish socialism as a failure.

Mark Steyn speaks in terms of soaring rhetoric unconnected to earthbound problems:

Take, for example, the attempt at soaring rhetoric: “That’s how we built this country — together. We constructed railroads and highways, the Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge. We did those things together,” he said, in a passage that was presumably meant to be inspirational but was delivered with the faintly petulant air of a great man resentful at having to point out the obvious, yet again. “Together, we touched the surface of the moon, unlocked the mystery of the atom, connected the world through our own science and imagination. We haven’t done these things as Democrats or Republicans. We’ve done them as Americans.”

Beyond the cheap dissembling, there was a bleak, tragic quality to this paragraph. Does anyone really believe a second-term Obama administration is going to build anything? Yes, you, madam, the gullible sap at the back in the faded hope’n’change T-shirt. You seriously think your guy is going to put up another Hoover Dam? Let me quote one Deanna Archuleta, Obama’s deputy assistant secretary of the interior, in a speech to Democrat environmentalists in Nevada:

“You will never see another federal dam.”


All three essays are worth reading in their entirety. All three struggle with the vast chasm between Obama’s words and actual reality. Although Ferrara calls Obama a liar to his face, Ferrara’s take on the matter is the most generous of the three, because he believes that Obama is a con man, not an insane man.

I wonder. Certainly if Obama is a con man, he’s a very bad one, in that he’s letting his audience in on the trick. A good con man would never rely upon such an easily proven set of numbers. If this is what Obama did, he’s once again proven himself to be the un-Churchill.

Why do I say that? It’s because of a story I once read that Churchill’s assistant told about the great man. I don’t know if it’s a true story, but it perfectly illustrates what a good con should be:

Churchill was invited to speak to a group of manufacturers about the future of their industry. He asked his assistant to research for him information about the probably economic future of this industry. The assistant returned to him and said that there were so many variables that it was impossible to put together a coherent picture of the industry’s future in the coming year, let alone the coming decade. To the assistant’s great surprise, the very next day, he heard Churchill give a speech replete with numbers, analyses, and estimates projecting out a good ten years. After the speech, the assistant approached Churchill and asked “How did you do that?” “Simple, my boy,” Churchill replied. “I made it up. You told me that there were too many variables to reach a conclusion or make a prediction about even the immediate future. That means that it will take years to prove my statements wrong, by which time there will have been so many intervening factors, no one will look back on what I said.”

Now that’s a con. What is not a con is to state as truth an absolute falsehood, and one that, moreover, has already been conclusively proven to be false.  The man who does that is either the most clumsy of all lies, or a monomaniac who has become unmoored from factual reality and drifted off into an economic realm all his own.

From the moment Obama appeared on the national political scene, many writers (including me) have been harping on Obama’s malignant narcissism.  The important thing to remember is that a malignant narcissist has built around an empty emotional core a carefully constructed, quite superior persona.  In order to keep that illusion alive, the narcissistic must constantly assert his superiority.  We’ve seen Obama do that over and over again.  Here are a few examples:

Marion Berry recounted meetings with White House officials, reminiscent of some during the Clinton days, where he and others urged them not to force Blue Dogs “off into that swamp” of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home.

“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all,” Berry said. “They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.”


President Obama met yesterday with “about 20 Conservative Jewish community leaders, thanking them for the work they do to improve communities around the country and discussed their shared commitment to rebuilding the U.S. economy,” Haaretz reports.

In the meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more “about Judaism” than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.

“Obama … stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it,” Haaretz reports.


When it comes to piloting
, Barack Obama seems to think he’s the political equivalent of Charles Lindbergh, Chuck Yeager and—in a “Fly Me to the Moon” sort of way—Nat King Cole rolled into one. “I think I’m a better speech writer than my speech writers,” he reportedly told an aide in 2008. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m . . . a better political director than my political director.”

The flip side of this constant self-assurance is the need to deny other people their due.  Narcissists are offensive.  That too is an Obama trait:

Asked in the Saturday Democratic debate about her dearth of “likability,” Clinton offered an answer both artful and sweet — first, demurely saying her feelings were hurt and mock-heroically adding that she would try to carry on regardless, then generously conceding that Obama is very likable and “I don’t think I’m that bad.”

At which point, Obama, yielding to some inexplicable impulse, gave the other memorable unscripted moment of the New Hampshire campaign — the gratuitous self-indicting aside: “You’re likable enough, Hillary.” He said it looking down and with not a smile but a smirk.


Obama poked fun of McCain and Palin’s new “change” mantra.

“You can put lipstick on a pig,” he said as the crowd cheered. “It’s still a pig.”

“You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink.”

“We’ve had enough of the same old thing.”


The president defended his talks with Gulf fishermen and oil spill experts, saying their purpose was not academic – rather, they were an exercise in asserting where the presidential boot should be administered, “so I know whose ass to kick”.


President Barack Obama says police in Cambridge, Mass., acted “stupidly” this week when they arrested Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, someone they knew was in his own home.

The big question, of course, is what happens to a malignant narcissist when reality is so overwhelming that his normal coping mechanisms — self-aggrandizement and the denigration of others — no longer work?  Obama is being soundly slapped in the face by economic reality, by statistics, by an aggressive political opponent (You go, Mitt!), and by a disillusioned, although still loyal, media.

One could say that insanity is the last refuge of a narcissist.  If the real world will no longer conform to his self-image, he’ll deny the real world, and come up with a better one that allows him to boast to his heart’s content, not just about his own alleged qualities, but about larger, objective reality.

Obama’s intellectual and emotional collapse would normally be a sad sight, indeed.  Because of his peculiarly exalted position, though, a mad President Obama is just as unnerving and dangerous for the State as any mad monarch of old.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I told my Lefty friends in the first year of his administration that there was a 50-50 chance that it would end badly, in a Nixonian sense.  The details are different, but reality is slowly closing in on an isolated, embattled WH.  Nixon recognized that the end was at hand.  I am not certain BHO can.  For all his faults, Nixon was not at heart a thug.  We are looking at something very like a President Huey Long.

  • Danny Lemieux

    Oh, but Book, it is far worse than that. Consider the new book being published that describes how so much of Obama’s past was made up in his own mind. Yes, he is a delusional and malignant narcissist, he is also a fabulist. 

    I really fear that this will not end well. First, there remains a lot of time for black swan events to unfold between now and the election that could change the current direction of the Obama administration or the mood of the American people. If there are no crises to exploit, they can create them. Obama could do something desperate to change the perceived course of the campaign that will result in many people getting hurt. Third, I am starting to get visions of Nero dancing in my head…all Obama needs is gas, matches and a fiddle. In the end, the narcissist will insist on asserting his supremacy.

    These people will not go down without a hard, bitter, desperate fight and their delusions will only make them more dangerous. It is not only Obama that is threatened, but the social justice crusaders’ entire Eutopian vision and personal legacies as well. They know that, if the Obama/Left power structure is defeated in this election, it may not get another chance at achieving its goals for a generation or two, long after these characters have passed into the tar pits of history.

  • Mike Devx

    Obama will believe his sycophants, and that includes the author of deceptive studies that “prove” Obama is not a big spender.  They’re extraordinarily deceptive, these studies, so as you read them, if you truly wish to believe, you will believe.  Obama is a true believer, in himself.

    His hardcore 25% of the USA supporters will believe every single word, too.

    And therein lies the fun.  Remember “Recovery Summer”, 2010?  They all BELIEVED.  It wasn’t until late August, early September, that they began to have doubts.  Even though all their pragmatic supporters had been screaming at them all to “Wake Up! Wake Up!  We are in trouble here!” By the time they realized their Recovery Summer had been a disaster, it was too late, and 2010 went horribly for them, wonderfully for us.

    So, yes, let them believe that Obama is not one of the biggest spenders that any government in the world has ever seen.  The proof is there that he is, and the Independents, I think, will not be fooled.

    The one thing on which Obama won’t fool himself is polling numbers.  If things continue to go south, he will take dramatic steps to try to win.  What is terrifying is that none of us can even guess where his limits lie.  There’s no telling what he is capable of.

  • MorowbieJukes

    From Russia’s and China’s standpoint, there is a 7 month window of opportunity that will never come again, a Commander in Chief of the USA who is an anti-American Marxist traitor as well as a malignant narcissist and sociopath. 
    China and Russia could decide to take advantage of this never-to-recur window of opportunity and launch a joint preemptive nuclear strike against the USA, possibly having cut a deal in advance with Obama to not retaliate and then immediately surrender.  China and Russia eliminate the USA in the geopolitical rivalry, collect huge reparations (Alaska back to Russia?) and Obama gets to remain vassal king of the former USA.
    Far fetched? To quote Mike Devx in his earlier post, “What is terrifying is that none of us can even guess where his limits lie.  There’s no telling what he’s capable of.”


    I was reading the comment section at WHD (Keith Koffler) and came across this from “Shofar” a regular visitor there, who wrote this satirical piece (I hope it was satire). Question is “if” he loses and it’s still an “if” at this date – “How far, how capable is he and Team O ready to combat reality”? I already see a pardon for Holder if necessary.The other big questions: “How much damage can he inflict” “Who or what will stop him and how”. How far will Obama go if reelected – I’d say look to the military and how willing they’re ready to put up with the results. If the non-trial of nidal hassan (three delays just this year and a question mark for October) is any indicator – we’re screwed.

    Text of President Obama’s Speech to the nation on Friday, November 9, 2012
    President Obama:
    Greetings my fellow Americans.
    As you all know this past Tuesday, November 6, 2012, was the Presidential election. After a close and bitter campaign the election results were finalized early Thursday morning, and I received 47.2 percent of the vote. The Libertarian candidate, what’s his name, received 2.5 percent of the votes, and the Republican candidate received 50.3 percent.
    My staff and I have reviewed the election results from various states, and have determined that there were many irregularities in the voting, and how the votes were counted. I have order Attorney General Holder to investigate these irregularities to determine if vote fraud has occurred in these states.
    My job as President of the United States is to insure the veracity and honesty of the election process, and as such I have determined that the true voice of the American people was not heard on Tuesday.
    As President I am required to protect those that may have been disenfranchised by improper or illegal voting procedures. Due to the gravity of the situation involved in possible voter fraud or abuse, I am today issuing an Executive Order to invalidate all the results for the national election held this past Tuesday. This is not an easy decision, but I am fairly confident that, after the Department of Justice has had time to review the results, Attorney General Holder and his investigators will agree with me and my staff that the results were improperly counted.
    A new election will be scheduled at a later date so that the true voice of the American people will be heard and counted. The Federal Election Commission along with all of the 57 states will work closely to determine a new election date at the completion of the Justice Department’s investigation.
    For this investigation to be done in a proper manner and to ensure the honesty of the election process I will continue as your President until such a time as a new election date can be set. Further, since I have invalidated the results of the national election, I am today issuing an Executive Order that will vacate the results of the Senatorial and Congressional elections. I have ordered the US Marshal’s Service to take control of the Capital Building, and to protect the dignity of the Congress and its members, access to the building will be restricted to maintenance personnel only.
    Additionally, I have also issued an Executive Order suspending all actions of the US Supreme Court until such a time as Justice has completed its investigation, and a new election is held. This action is again being done to preserve the dignity and honesty of the election process.
    I know that there are fringe elements of the right wing that will attempt to disrupt this investigation, and therefore I am today ordering all National Guard and reserve units of the US military to come under the direct authority of the Department of Defense. I will leave to the discretion of the Defense Secretary the need to impose any curfew in cities and areas that might become hot beds of domestic terrorism. If the Secretary deems it necessary, I have authorized him and his commanders to confiscate any and all weapons and items that could be used against the peoples of the United States.
    As a Constitutional Republic, it is unfortunate that I must take these actions in order to preserve the Constitution. However, I see no recourse, and I have been assured by Attorney General Holder that the investigation should take no longer than 18 to 24 months to complete. Again, after the completion of the investigation, American will again have a free and honest election.
    Thank you, good night, and God bless America.

  • Charles Martel

    For Obama to carry out Sadie’s chilling fantasy, he would have to make the armed forces in a Praetorian Guard. If so, he would be wise (in a rare lucid moment) to remember what the Praetorian Guard did to Caligula.

  • Libby

    I think a lot of people have imagined a scenario such as Sadie’s. Obama won’t need as many troops in the 57 states if he relies on his trusty drones to take out any and all potential “threats” to the republic. And he’ll has the TSA already trained and equipped w/scanners to deploy outside of airports, as needed. God, I never thought I’d become a babbling conspiracy theorist, but the Obama’s mental stability and true motives are so uncertain.

  • Charles Martel

    Lawdy, Lawdy, if Obama comes to rely on TSA morons to carry out his coup, we will win a mighty victory.

  • Mike Devx

    I don’t worry very much about the dictatorial route, myself.  I don’t see that happening.

    But these are Chicago bare-knuckles politicians here, who will do virtually ANYTHING leading up to an election to tilt the field in their favor.  Fraud is the most likely scenario.  And then, if he can keep it close, lawsuits across several states would delay official results for several months, possibly provoking a Constitutional crisis.

    I see it being very difficult for Obama to spark a conflict in the August-October timeframe, even with Iran.  There are often benefits to such “October Surprises”, but Obama has painted himself into a corner with his core constituencies, so that any military surprise has huge potential political drawbacks for him.  I honestly couldn’t say what I think he would do.  He has no easy route (aside from the obvious one, fraud).

  • Ymarsakar

    Babbling lunacy conspiracies? You guys can leave that to me, I thought I was the expert on paranoid security concerns. Now everybody seems to want a piece of that pie…

    Then again, people might have remembered that I didn’t say much about Obama from 2008 to 2010. There was a reason for that.

  • Ymarsakar

    If you guys want an inside track on Obama’s operations in the field, look up Bernadine Dohr, Ayers, and all the millionaire/billionaire funding behind OWS. OWS is their Army, formerly the anti-war movement against Iraq.

    It’s quite a substantial one, although with incompetent training and nothing but mob tactics to go with, still they can murder, kidnap, and rape enough people to get the message across. The primary advantage of the Leftist position right now is deniability. They can get a lot of things done to their enemies, that cannot be traced back to them. 

  • Danny Lemieux

    You can sleep well tonight: the allegiance of the military is to the Constitution, not the President.

  • 94Corvette

    actually, what concerns me is that Obama has so balkanized America that we may be on the verge of a long, hot summer. If riots break out, especially along racial lines, I can well imagine Obama’s requesting United Nations assistance (with willing participants Russia, China to quell the riots and suspending the elections until ‘order’ is restored.

    1 Corinthians 13:11

     “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.”


    “When I became a man, I put away childish things.”

    No check mark on this one yet.

    Maybe we’ll get the mother of all temper tantrums instead.


    It wasn’t my fantasy (post #5) it was lifted, cut and pasted from Keith Koffler’s website.My fantasy involves water, a board, a president…oh nevermind.

    Danny, I’d like to believe …  “the allegiance of the military is to the Constitution, not the President” but I have some reservations and they started with the Air Force Academy setting aside a “special” area for Wiccans some years ago and of course, the straw that broke this camel’s back was calling the murders at Ft. Hood “work place violence”. The top brass has gone off the reservation. I don’t know who or what is directing this bullshit – but it sure stinks.

  • Beth

    94Corvette–my thoughts exactly.  He (and the Clintons) has been itching to get the UN involved in this country, on the ground.  This would fit in nicely with the Koffler post as well. 
    Beware of the blue berets–should be a bigger worry to us than any China or Russia. 

  • jj

    Dunno, Corvette and Beth.  There are a lot of neighborhoods in this country the blue berets would be wise to avoid: they’d be seen as chum.  We’re a little bit different animal than most places the UN’s been.  Yamamoto wasn’t kidding when, after Pearl Harbor, he pointed out that Tojo and the war party in Japan really didn’t understand the scope of the problem.   The only way Japan could win would be to land the army on the west coast, and fight their way, foot by foot, to Washington DC to force a surrender on the capitol steps.  And they wouldn’t just have to fight the US army, because along the entire route every single farmer, farmer’s son, farmer’s daughter, and 90% of the non-farm landowners and homeowners would be well armed, and would contest every foot.  And they wouldn’t fight fair, they wouldn’t be out in the open.
    An armed civil populace – which we are, despite the years of effort to render us otherwise – is not something the UN has confronted before.  Compared to every other country in the world, including the war zones they’ve been to, we are a bunch of unruly bastards.  In the war zones you expect and can prepare for some war-type issues.  Here?  Well hell, my street’s not at war with anybody – we just happen to have a bunch of AR-15s, and a pile of other stuff.  And there are 50 million of us.  And we’re not mad, we’re not in anybody’s army or militia; you won’t even know we’re there: we’ll be hiding.  (Hi, schmuck in blue beanie! Look this way and smile!  Or not – I don’t much care.)  And IEDs?  My goodness, what you can make from common household chemicals!  (That’s an American locution, by the way.  “Common household chemicals?”  90% of them are only common in this country and Canada – they’re not common in Bosnia.  Housewives in Sarajevo never had access to anything like the potential armory under the kitchen sink that Blondie could access here in American suburbia.)  
    I think we’d be an interesting mouthful for the UN. 

  • Charles Martel

    I’m not sure the UN has troops that can do much more than flee in terror or sexually assault children.
    As for the Russian or Chinese armies, give me a break. Those ill-trained peasant assholes would either fall apart almost immediately under fire by enraged American citizens or defect after their first taste of authentic Taco Bell.

  • David Foster

    “When it comes to piloting, Barack Obama seems to think he’s the political equivalent of Charles Lindbergh, Chuck Yeager and—in a “Fly Me to the Moon” sort of way—Nat King Cole rolled into one.”

    If someone took this approach to *actual* piloting, he would be unlikely to survive beyond his first solo.

    Unfortunately, we have someone who has never had either the sense of responsibility or the intellectual curiousity to play with MS Flight Simulator or read a book on flying before going out and taking the controls of an airliner filled with passengers…secure that his genius will ensure he can handle the task despite his lack of preparation…and also secure in the knowledge that (unlike the other passengers) he is wearing a parachute.

  • Danny Lemieux

    Calm down, everyone. I really think that we are overreacting. 

    We have been in worse positions before, as during the reign of our first left-wing, academic, progressive president, Woodrow Wilson. Then, without the internet, it was very difficult for citizens to follow what was going on or for the opposition to organize. We were not a 50:50 country at the time…Wilson dealt with a Congress that had a clear Democrat majority (as in the first two years of the Obama administration). He also had a supportive Supreme Court that was dominated by such progressives as Louis Brandeis and fellow-traveler Oliver Wendell Holmes (no “wise Latinas”, though).

    This was the first proto-fascist regime the U.S. has known, where people could get beat-up or thrown into jails by pro-regime thugs for speaking out or printing leaflets against the government (the Anti-Sedition Act and the enforcing Committee on of Public Information). In addition, Wilson openly pursued an economic policy of crony-fascist government control over private enterprise. 

    None of this lasted. Today, we have many more tools at our disposal to shed light on the intentions, foibles,  escapades and screw-ups of the Obama administration and he doesn’t control Congress. I can also assure you that the military is not pro-Obama. Whereas nobody would accuse Wilson of having being incompetent, more and more people (even Democrats) are realizing that the Obama Administration is peopled by hollow men.

    So, cheer up – we have a fight ahead but, as Thomas Wolfe once quoted French political philosopher Jean-Francois Revel saying, the “dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe”.

    This, too, shall pass. 

  • Beth

    Yes, Danny, I get quite pessimistic when it comes to all this.  I guess it’s just that I’m trying to raise kids in all this crap.  I remember being in my 20-yr-old’s shoes and thinking that I could truly do anything I put my mind to.  Well, she’s working a factory job 40 hours a week this summer to make her school payments. (And I am darn proud of her and glad she has the job!)  Her future seems quite a bit more challenging than mine ever was.  And yes, a fight will make us stronger and in the long run, a better nation.  I am trying to toughen myself and my kids up for whatever the future holds.  I don’t believe it will be what I had growing up in the 70’s & 80’s.  Then again, maybe I am just a normal parent, worrying about the kids…..

    “Calculated Deception” 

    Back when I was  drinking, 24 years ago, I called it “Creative Reality“.

  • Ymarsakar

    The reason why the Progressives are progressive is because they adopt the progressive model of evil. Not one big evil totalitarian push, but incremental changes over generations. So it doesn’t matter how bad it was during Wilson’s tenure, since Wilson was just putting down the foundations for later. It all adds up to the present and should not be taken in isolation. Wilson paved the way for FDR. FDR paved the way for Lyndon’s welfare. Lyndon Johnson’s welfare paved the way for the first black President, Clinton, and the Democrat hold over black slaves on the plantation. If things look easy now, it’s because the hard work was done laying down the foundation and people are just making use of it to build their doomsday machine in the present.

     The US military has never had the tradition or a precedence or a chain of command in which they had to choose between their Commander in Chief and the US Constitution. Even in the Civil War, people chose loyalty to their state’s constitution over loyalty to the federal President. Even if this case is resurrected to deal with the present, it would simply be called secession or some cookey right wing militia idea of the old Confederacy. That would be what the vast majority of Americans, civilian or military, would see it as. Because the US military functions from orders, SOP, and tradition, when there is no tradition of the US military protecting the US Constitution from the US President, there isn’t going to be a lot of stuff done on the matter. It’s just how humans behave and are organized. It doesn’t matter what the individual wishes or wants, when the organization doesn’t exist to further those aims.

    The UN peacekeeping mercenaries are vulnerable to conventional and unconventional warfare. Usually unconventional warfare is used against a force that you cannot beat in a stand up fight. In the US, people can beat the UN armies in a stand up fight or via cheating. Lots of options.

     But to defeat the Left, requires mastery of unconventional warfare, specifically Sun Tzu’s acme of battle skills. And that is something you won’t see in America until the time is right.
