There are crises, and there are what I am going to call "root crises."
Crises are what we read about in the headlines: Obama's latest post-Constitutional/dictatorial act; the most recent episode in population replacement; the next terrifying Supreme Court decision; the predictable disaster of Iranian nuclear negotiations, or continued American military presence in Afghanistan; the looming threat of the United Nations empowered by an "internationalist" US president.
"Root crises," however, don't make headlines, are never addressed, and are rarely articulated, especially by elected officials and others with lawful authority or even media platforms. For this reason, the crises that grow from root crises only multiply, and are never dispatched.
A recent, incipient exception -- and ray of light -- was Sen. Cotton's website letter addressed to the theocratic rulers of Iran. Cotton exposed the root crisis from which the crisis of Iranian nuclear negotiations arises -- the Constitutional crisis at home in which an administration (not the first) runs amok, unbounded by checks and balances.
Behold the flak Sen. Cotton drew. The wild hysterics on the Left and the Establishment Right (same difference) tells me that there is much righteous power to be drawn from bringing such root crises to light. But Cotton and his 46 GOP colleagues have to keep the light shining and more.
They need to realize that the unaddressed "root crisis" of broken checks and balances has a root crisis, too -- many of them. If they dig deeper, it will become clear that Congress, a co-equal branch of government, itselt is in crisis. It has not just permitted, it has enabled the executive branch to engage in the Constitutionally illegal behaviors that the Senator's letter warns of. Obama could not do this without help. Congress has flouted its Constutitional responsibility just as much as President Obama has by failing to to impeach him -- a big root crisis, heretofore unaddressed. Continuing to ignore this, continuing to flinch at "political considerations," will leave this systemic crisis to metasticize further.
Digging deeper still, we arrive at the time before this president -- not the first -- overturned, with Congress' collusion, the system of checks and balances. Here, we find still another root crisis that has never been addressed: President Obama does not have clean identify documents. As I have written in many syndicated columns and posts before -- to no particular avail, I suppose, but for the pride of the record -- the "birth certificate" the White House website hosts and passes off as a copy of an official paper document has been demonstrated to be a fraud. That no public official in the entire country (and forget 99.9 percent of the media) -- with the magnificent exception of Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio -- has made this case to the conned, victimized American People is a root crisis, indeed.
It shows the cowardly soul -- the most serious root crisis there is.
As a result of this and more, then, the unbounded and fraudulent Obama administration is, of course, reaching for more powers through the use of the "internationalist" United Nations, whether in dealings with Iran or, it seems, Israel. "Internationalist," of course, is a euphemistic adjective that describes the movement toward what is euphemistically known as "world government." This latter term is not used too much, possibly because it frightens people who grasp that denizens of such a "world government" are "subjects," not "citizens," ruled by the fiat of "transnational" elites.
This should not be a mystery. It is a fact and a root crisis that the euphemistically named "United Nations," seat of the euphemistically named "Security Council," was fostered into being in the final years of World War II and originally presided over by a decorated Soviet GRU officer/US State Department official named Alger Hiss.
These roots run deep.
