Locked Out of the Cockpit

Crash-Position

The deliberate crashing of Germanwings Flight 9525 reminds Hope n’ Change Cartoons of a similar situation closer to home:

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn’t be stopped because anyone who could change the jet’s disastrous course was locked out.

It’s hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard – but not impossible.

Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs. We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don’t know where we’re going anymore, but do know it isn’t good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

He locked the American people out of his decision to seize the national healthcare system. Locked us out when we wanted to know why the IRS was attacking conservatives. He locked us out of having a say in his decision to tear up our immigration laws, and to give over a trillion dollars in benefits to those who broke those laws.

Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about the growing threat of ISIS. He locked out anyone who could have interfered with his release of five Taliban terror chiefs in return for one U.S. military deserter.

And of course, Barack Obama has now locked out Congress, the American people, and our allies as he strikes a secret deal with Iran to determine the timeline (not prevention) of their acquisition of nuclear weapons. …

Like those passengers, a growing number of Americans feel a helpless dread as they come to the inescapable conclusion that our nation’s decline is an act of choice rather than of chance. The choice of one man who is in full control of our 8 year plunge.

Andreas Lubitz’s act of lunatic malice works well as metaphor for the unfolding catastrophe of Obama’s presidency. The only way it would be more perfect would be if everyone had known in advance that there was excellent reason not to trust Lubitz, but he was put in the cockpit anyway out of political correctness.

On a tip from DJ.

    And there are still MANY who adore, applaud and claim this POS is a “great” president. It really makes me wonder…

    Amazing analogy.

    The administration does NOT represent the will of the American people. (Yet those who do support it are on welfare of one sort or another, and are blinded by sloth, dependency, and freebies.)

    Sadly, Republicans are complicit in this travesty until they stand up and stop Captain Zero as this national death spiral is rapidly reaching the point of no return.

    Fundamental transformation, indeed.

  7. […] it could be we won’t have to worry about the future if Congress doesn’t find a way to break down the cockpit door right […]

    Politicians only think one step ahead – to their next election. Public workers seem unwilling to think at all.

    Another way the American people are locked out is evidenced by his “using his pen and his phone” to write executive orders and circumventing the people’s elected representaties in Congress.

    I wrote this about a year ago and it is even more true now.

    Wake up time has come and gone. There has already been a coup. We are living in a dictatorship. Our borders have been breached and we have been INVADED by a panoply of nations and it will not go well for We the People. The southern border by who knows how many nationalities who mostly mean us harm. Invasion by ExOrder from mostly Middle Eastern and African Countries. Look at this web site http://refugeeresettlementwatch

    It is all very chilling he (Obama) is doing everything in a very calculated way. 0 is following Hitler’s playbook.

    He has made the Congress and the Judiciary irrelevant and they are complicit since they have not taken serious immediate action to stop him. They are frittering at it but not action to actually squash his past or future actions. They should consider carefully what Hitler did after he gained power. How long will it be before Congress and the Judiciary are dismissed by 0. How long will some members of Congress and the Judiciary live following dismissal. Not long if 0 continues following the playbook.

    Half Past Wake up Time.

    He has made the Congress and the Judiciary irrelevant.
    He makes his own laws by EO and changes laws by EO.
    He has assumed dictatorial powers and we are still debating if he can be impeached or when he should be impeached.
    There has already been a coup.
    Too late to talk of impeachment.
    Dictators are not impeached.

    Who knows if he will leave office after the election at the end of his term as president.

    Perhaps like Gaius Julius Caesar, he will declare himself Dictator for Life.
    Perhaps like Caesar he will want the public to recognize him as a (demi) god.

    There is a bill in the senate to CHANGE the FIRST AMENDMENT. They say it is just to curtail political donations but the way it is worded it could and will stop all free speech with regards to political issues.

    But of course if we have a dictator what difference does the Constitution make. Not a rhetorical question just a statement.

    Think about this warning from the past

    “It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The freeman of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.” –James Madison, Memorial and Remonstrance, 1785?

    The Secret Service has done everything but shoot the Turd themselves. They have left the front door open, the back door open, got liquored and crashed cars. Still no one has grabbed the brass ring.

    You get the distinct impression that those on the national socialist LEFT also hate the Country and Liberty just as much as the Dear Liar.

    He and they seem to have one single purpose and that’s to destroy the country for it past ‘misdeeds’ or something (Don’t ask me to explain it, I have trouble dealing with that level of illogic)

    What I don’t understand is how they think they will somehow be immune to the destruction they have wrought?

    Do they have sort of nonsensical fantasy that at the last moment they can bail out of the crash with little minny plane or something?
