Coup d'etat in progress

With every single Democrat, of either chamber, voting Yes for the government debt ceiling to be increased further, the fate of America's already hyperinflated economy was left solely up to the Republicans, of which 87 apparently voted to support it, which is more than the 81 Senators who also voted in support.

Cool, so this shows Republicans 'backed down' as covered here:
Republicans Back Down, Ending Crisis Over Shutdown and Debt Limit

Or, did they?...
House Republicans Changed The Rules So A Majority Vote Couldn't Stop The Government Shutdown

In the hours working up to the government shutdown on Sept. 30, Republican members of the House Rules Committee were developing a strategy to keep a clean CR off the floor, guaranteeing the government would remain shut down.

Though at least 28 House Republicans have publicly said they would support a clean CR if it were brought to the floor -- enough votes for the government to reopen when combined with Democratic support -- a House rule passed just before the shutdown essentially prevents that vote from taking place.

Hmmm... between these two events - the Sept 30 House rule passed just before shutdown to prevent any vote on the matter taking place, and the Oct 16 vote result apparently to end the shutdown by raising the ceiling - it seems to me all rather convenient a shutdown was forced yet then a further debt ceiling despite current hyperinflation & government spending frenzy, raised ; like someone or some group wants to see American government crashed, Obama & Republicans blamed, and a new change for the opposite party practically guaranteed:

With the Supreme Court having upheld the constitutionality of the ACA in June 2012, Republicans were left with only two approaches. First, despite the fact that health care is worst where the GOP does best, Republicans set out to undermine the implementation of Obamacare in almost every state they controlled. And to prevent the Obama administration from implementing the Affordable Care Act nationwide, they targeted the federal government itself with the same weapon they first threatened to detonate in the summer of 2011. That weapon was also nuclear.

In 2013, the hostage would be Obamacare.

But in the weeks and months after Obama's second inauguration, that wasn't the only item on the Republican ransom note. By March 2013, Politico reported, "House GOP leadership is also eyeing several bills to hike the debt cap with different budgetary reforms [which] include increasing the Medicare eligibility age, means testing Medicare and changing the formula for calculating government benefits." By May, another approach "gained significant traction -- and has been ricocheting around K Street and Capitol Hill -- would directly wed increases in the debt ceiling to progress in tax reform." By July, the price went up again as some Republicans began demanding President Obama essentially approve the Paul Ryan budget that had garnered the votes of 95 percent of Congressional Republicans three years running.

In other words, the Republicans were seeking a de facto coup d'état by other means. The government the American people twice elected would be defenestrated, not through violence, but by blackmail.

Someone trying to crash us you say? Hmmmm...the globalist wetdream--to be put into effect--does require that the U.S. be taken down a few big notches.

We're really all that stands in the way of such goals, eh? After that the NWO is ON!

Come on... Do you really believe there is some kind of coup d'etat going on?
I see it for what it is, a rigged game, all at our expense. The only thing those on capital hill have in mind is in the interest of themselves, the corporations and the "middle man" lobbyist. Lets say a certain corporation (e.g. some health insurance corp.) wants to put a bill through and have it pass, then the lobbyists go to work, handing out the big $$$$$$ for whoever puts their name on the dotted line.

In the end, they get rich, the politicians get rich and the lobbyists get rich, everybody wins! Except us, the wage slaves, we just sit back and point fingers and shout at each other like a bunch of neanderthals, pretending "our side" actually cares what we think and not realizing we're just a tool to gain support for the "cause", aka filling the politicians pockets with money.

Why do you think corporations gives donations to candidates? It's basically a contract for future "negotiations". If one couldn't figure that out, then this is basically a lost cause.

YES!!! All of Congress is now flying to Florida Thursday to attend a former Senators funeral. The military is doing the flying for them. Now tell me that isn't just a little suspicious with all this going on.

My bet is they all go to their bunker and another plane is crashed for a major false flag leaving Obama in charge as temporary King, since they do nothing real to oppose him anyway.
