Paranoia Runs Free!

Tin-foil hat time boys and girls. The question of the day is, did President Obama make a secret stop in Russia and visit with Putin during his Copenhagen trip last week? Normally I don’t buy into these conspiracy theories, and you’ll probably find this one as crazy as any of them, but hey, let’s have some fun. So first, Adam Curry totally buys into this, if you are interested you can listen to his take here. This is where I first saw this whole idea floated. Then, as I was kind of bumping around the Internet, I came across this article, which also touched on the subject, but from the far-left moonbat perspective.

So, why would President Obama make a secret trip to Russia and not tell anyone? John C. Dvorack seems to think (if this happened at all) that it relates to the whole Iranian situation. You may recall hearing a few weeks ago that that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu made a secret visit to Russia in order to discuss the whole Iranian situation. Many think that he was attempting to negotiate with Russia so that Israel could take military action to destroy Iran’s ability to produce nuclear bombs. So, possibly Obama met with Putin to discuss the whole situation and make sure they were on the same page. Actually, from a timing point of view, the whole Copenhagen thing did seem somewhat pretextual. Obama flies, over night to make a one hour speech, which was very poor and rushed, and then leaves real quickly to fly back home. Seems kind of strange, maybe he did make a secret stop somewhere.

What I find more fun is the whole moon-bat analysis of this supposed secret mission. If you want to see some awesome paranoia, visit this page. According to these guys (someone named Sorcha Faal) Obama met with Putin because he was afraid of a US military coup. Essentially, the claim is made, that Obama has been told by Sec. Gates that the U.S. President has no real power and that the military will tell Obama what he should do, and then he proceeded to order a military build-up in Afghanistan. Okay, so, Obama is afraid of a military coup so he went to talk to the former KGB leader and leader of Russia for help??? That makes . . . no sense whatsoever.

While this is fun and full of good fodder, it gets much better. Of course, all the blame lies with the “right-wing fascists” like Jim DeMint. Actually, they blame Newmax writer John L. Perry for writing a rather incendiary piece for the site that has now been removed. However, here are some of the relevant pieces, which might explain why the leftists are up in arms:

There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it ….

magine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

Yeah, that probably doesn’t make the right look so good. I don’t care who you are, you can’t go writing scenarios that envision a coup or assassination of the president (oh wait, the left did make that movie about the assassination of Bush). So, of course, since one whack-job on the right wrote some lunacy about a military coup, we all must think that is the solution, up to and including Jim DeMint. So, thoughts? Could there have been a secret meeting? Is a coup in the planning? That guy from the movie Conspiracy Theory has a newsletter that answers all your questions I’m sure.
