‘Yep, that’s the latest among the right wing nut jobs. “Something” will happen – no, honestly, they aren’t specific at all! – and Obama will be so beloved that he will be elected to a third term’.
‘The main peddler of this latest whacked-out theory is Stansberry & Associates Investment Research, a publishing firm’.
‘They specialize in snake oil financial advice and have a history of promoting such nonsense. Recently they sent out emails signed by George Rayburn, a publisher with their company’.
‘In them, they ask readers to imagine that it is 2015 and that “a specific event” – seriously, that’s what it says – will take place’.
‘This event will usher in a prosperous period for the U.S. and this is bad because it will “propel Obama to a near-unprecedented third term.”
‘There is a link to a full analysis of this scenario given in the email. They also link to a slideshow called “The Third Term — INSIDE: The Secret Plan to Retain Power Through 2020? The slideshow is little more than a scare piece, laying out how Obama will become a tyrant and implement “terrifying socialist policies.”
‘Their actual record on predictions isn’t quite so sunny’.
‘In 2010, they predicted violence and unrest along with the destruction of the American economy’.
‘That little gem, “End Of America,” completely contradicts this new theory. I guess it’s supposed to just be supplanted by this new bit of wingnuttery’.
‘Also suspect: in 2003, the firm was ordered by the SEC to pay $1.5 million in restitution and penalties for selling false financial information’.
