Conspiracy Files: Obama Running In 2016, Publisher Says

A right-wing financial forecaster has some good news and some bad news for you.

The good news, says Porter Stansberry, publisher of Stansberry’s Investment Advisory: America’s shale deposits are going to produce an economic boom that will “usher in a new age of prosperity the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades.” The exploitation of this new resource will transform America’s energy sector more than any event since the discovery of oil in Texas in 1901.

The bad news: President Obama will use the revenue generated by the new industry to implement socialist policies that will transform him into an idol of the American people.

Obama, predicts Stansberry, will use his popularity to seize control of Americans’ 401Ks and implement a national sales tax. With revenues from shale licenses, which will be “like a gift from the Prophet Muhammad to President Obama,” he will “expand the welfare rolls to buy more votes.”

And why would Obama, who just won what he called his “final campaign,” need more votes? Because, he won’t be able to spend all that new money between now and 2017, and because the masses will demand he serve a third term. That’s right. According to Stansberry, Obama is planning to ignore the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“His administration will be extended into a third or even a fourth term, making him one of the most powerful presidents in American history, rivaling FDR” -- whose endless presidency inspired the two-term limit.

You can watch a slideshow and listen to Stansberry talk about the plot here.

Stansberry’s prediction has been circulated widely in the conservative media: it has appeared as a banner ad atop the Drudge Report, and has also been advertised on Townhall.com, NewsMax and Human Events. And it’s worth noting that Rush Limbaugh began raising the specter of a third term all the way back in 2009. However, serious conservatives think it’s a ludicrous prospect. As the Heritage Foundation’s Hans van Spakovsky told Mother Jones:

“I don’t like Obama's policies, but even I don’t believe he would try to get a third term in direct contravention of the 22nd Amendment. Particularly because he couldn’t. There is a constitutional prohibition as well as a practical one: When you submit an application in every state and in Washington, DC, to the state election official to qualify to get on the ballot, they simply won't accept an application from someone who violates the 22nd Amendment.”

But saying Obama will run for a third term allows conservatives to run a third campaign against him, and as a hate object for the right, he’s irreplaceable.

this one is far out, even for C/Ts. I mean seriously, its hilarious. onelight, I think you got the wrong forum, the humor section is farther down. Anyone looking at this can tell its crazy-the fact is, we already HAVE the oil deposits to be the worlds leading oil producer-the reason were not, is because the government wont let us fully tap them. And thats not all Obamas fault-but he certainly, certainly, supports, and has increased the rules that are bottlenecking the energy industry. The mere idea, that Obama, would use oil, (which he is openly against) to give him a third term, is beyond comprehension is me. Now, I dont doubt that if Obama could find away around the 22nd amendment that he would, but he wouldnt use oil to do it, it wouldnt even make a smart move-the minute he starts openly supporting the oil industry like that he will lose a LOT of support, and that will ruin his chances of a third term. On top of that, to work an oil field like that, would require a huge workforce, which would force a lot of Obamas supporters off of welfare to enter the work force-and there goes Obamas votes, people want easy money, not 100+hours a week in harsh work environments money, which is what an oil boom of that magnatude would do. On top of that, it would help the environment, and create more rich people. Obama can't have that.

Yeah, I think is too far out. But it is possible that he is paving the way for the next one who may be even worse. The agenda that is afoot to destroy America is bigger than one man.

Why would he need to run for election in 2016? There isn't going to be another election.

Even Obama couldn't pull this off. There are only two ways Obama could get a third term. The simplest way is to get his wife to run. True, he would not actually be President, but it is not like Barack and Michelle are on differen't sides. The other possibility is if secession actually takes place in great enough numbers, where all the conservative voters have formed a new nation, and only blue states remain. They could repeal the 22nd Amendment, and Obama could become their king. No, he wouldn't be over the entire 50 states, but his power could continue forever in states loyal to him. Nobody is going to let him get away with simply ignorning the term limits placed on him in the Constitution, even if he becomes very popular. Many of us wished Reagan could have a third term, but nobody thought we could do it without repealing the 22nd Amendment first. We wouldn't have supported such a scheme, as it is lawlessness.

Isn't that what the C.T.s were saying in 2009? This stuff is ridiculous.

There is another way. Simply manufacture a national emergency and place the country under Marshal Law. All elections will be suspended indefinitely.

Well, if your being serious, then I seriously suspect youll be wrong. :D

On another note, why would there be any need for Obama to run again? Bidens already said hes going to run-and hes just a older, meaner, more sarcastic version of Obama.

Sorry I just thought it was a witty comment. Re: Mayans. Seems like that is the craze right now.

Meant no offense brother.

God bless,

You are right. He could attempt to suspend the next election, but that is not exactly the same as seeking a third term. He could extend his reign, but I don't know for how long? It would come down to whether or not the citizens and the military would allow it? They don't really need a third Obama term to do damage. They can bring in another figure head to advance their agenda, like Hillary Clinton for instance.
