Sounds kind of fishy.

Colin Powell Warns Of Coming Crisis “We Don’t Even Know About Right Now”

Steve Watson
Tuesday, Oct 21, 2008

Colin Powell has made bizarre comments that echo the recent declaration by Democratic VP candidate Joe Biden that there will be an "international crisis" early into Barack Obama’s presidency that will test the new president by forcing him to make unpopular decisions.

Speaking on meet the press two days ago, Powell officially endorsed Obama and also made the following statement:

"The problems will always be there and there’s going to be a crisis which will come along on the 21st, 22nd of January that we don’t even know about right now.

So I think what the President has to start to do is to start using the power of the oval office and the power of his personality to convince the American people and convince the world that America is solid, that America is going to move forward, we are going to fix our economic problems, we’re going to meet out overseas obligations."

Watch Powell make the comment at 2.35 into the following video:


Is Colin Powell referring to a theoretical crisis that could occur at any time? If so why does he choose a specific date, within the first two days after the inauguration? Also why does he refer to general problems that the new president will have to deal with in a separate context? We are already in an economic crisis, everyone knows that, so what new crisis is Powell talking about?

Whatever you read into Powell’s comments, they sound somewhat bizarre, particularly as they come on the back of Joe Biden’s "guarantee" of a "generated crisis" to "test the mettle" of the new leader within six months of the new presidential term:

What does Biden mean by "generated crisis"? It is an undeniably strange term to use.

His reference to John F. Kennedy indicates that Biden may have been referring some kind of geopolitical crisis in the vain of the Cuban missile crisis of April 1961. The confrontation between the United States, the Soviet Union, and Cuba at the height of the Cold War came within the first four months of JFK’s presidency.

Obama’s running mate made the comments at a fundraising event in Seattle two days ago, on the same day Powell also spoke of a coming crisis.

We shouldn’t be surprised at Powell’s comments however, given that the former Secretary of State seemingly has a knack for predicting events before they take place.

Previous to the beginning of the Iraq war in February 2003, an audio tape containing a voice described as that of Osama Bin Laden was touted as proof positive of Al Qaeda links with Saddam Hussein.

Hours before the tape was discovered and aired by TV channel Al Jazeera, Powell announced in the US Senate that a “Bin Laden tape is coming proving Iraq’s links with Al-Qaeda.”

This led some to raise the question how does Colin Powell know what Al Jazeera are going to broadcast before they do?

In an amazing and timely coincidence, the tape came barely a week after Powell’s attempts to link Al Qaeda and Saddam in his botched presentation of lies and exaggerations before the UN Security Council.

Here is a follow-up article as well:

So am I confused as to why this would "help" Obama?

A "crisis" always provides the state with a justification for seizing more power. Given Obama's messianic illusions perhaps such a crisis would be used to implement the totalitarian leftist state his disciples dream of.

Total economic implosion (count on this), and the "Messiah of the United States" for liberals and other naives Obama would be able to install the Bush-designed Homeland Security Police State against "uprising local populations".

It may also point to a clash with KGB-Russia under Vladimir Putin and Medvedev. Russia is arming itself - but you'll hear almost nothing about it in the media. Nothing almost about the October 20 nuclear tests and intercontinental missile launches by Russian Army. Only about "reduction of officers in Russian Army", meaning the Kremlin dismisses corrupt generals who do nothing in their offices all day, replacing them with fighting officers for tank bataillons.

Crisis?  There are already several to choose from, which people already dimly perceive despite the general national blackout of real news.  What is not needed is a real one, but a fake one that is very scary.

Every despot needs a Reichstag fire to seal his ascendancy. 

And this won't be tough -- even people in their 80s today have lived most of their lives in an atmosphere of fabricated mass-media reality.

While a critical mass of Americans obviously no longer believe or care about personal liberty in the classic sense (Obama could not have nominated if the case were otherwise) many still have a habit of it--although for the younger, liberty is nowadays only synonymous with sexual libertinism.  In any event the generation x & y libertines (already ecstatic merely imagining President Obama) won't be enough to quickly seal a despotic regime after the so-called election.  And in general, all need be softened up to some degree for what is coming.  Thus the comments of Biden and Powell.

Obama and his Reichstag fire  will not be able to wait very long at all to seal his absolutist takeover, once tv images start showing the people coming into power with him.  How much better if it is some international "crisis" -- then he can wrap himself up in the flag, and not have to deal with politics (too messy).  Also, the constitution (which he will also wrap himself in) gives the president much broader powers over foreign affairs than domestic, even now after some years of the Partriot Acts.

We shortly face an unprecedented single government without checks and balances -- both houses of Congress, the Presidency, the courts (the supreme court being only a single vote away), and all national media.  States have long ago been stripped of all real power to check the national government.  The treasury secretary has already, pre-election, been given unreviewable absolutist power -- whoever wins.

Once policy spheres (foreign and domestic) are then united also, you face power even Joe Stalin would have dreamed of, and far beyond George Orwell's most harrowing visions.  Like all other things American, it will be truly "new."  Look to your neigbors left and right, and they will all be in ecstasy before the boy pharoah, the new American man-god (Rush's tag of "the Messiah" is a both a tad archaic and too politically incorrect, mired in the Judao-Christian).
Midway in the journey of our life I found myself in a dark wood . . . .


If people are calling dates, my thought is there is some meeting scheduled, and what will be released at the meeting is the expected bad news.

Generated crisis, or not, sooner or later the Immaculate Heart of Mary will prevail.

Seemed to me that he was just saying that when Obama gets the keys to the Oval office he is going to get some sort of crisis from day 1.  There is not going to be a honeymoon period for him given the problems that the US is facing with the economy, jobs, housing etc.

Obama is an anti-Christ (little 'a' anti-Christ) and they always have some crisis (usually fabricated) to solve to make people turn from God to them.

The Anti-Christ (big 'a') will do the same, but on the level of a cataclysm.
