Many people think President Barack Obama is either incompetent to be in office or that he may be anti-American, veteran political analyst Dick Morris says, but there is something more in play — the president wants to turn the United States into a one-party nation.
“He wants to consolidate power so the country can never again elect someone other than a liberal Democrat, said Morris, speaking with Townhall Finance’s Michael Schaus, on Saturday.
Morris, who co-authored the recently released book “Power Grab: Obama’s Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation,” with his wife Eileen McGann, said that while many presidents want to keep their parties in office, they persuade the public legitimately, not by the “underhanded, illegal” means Obama uses.
For example, said Morris, there are many who believe the president erred when he advertised to Central America that people coming to the United States would receive amnesty, but “he intended” for the overcrowding of illegal migrants at the border this year.
“He wanted to attract illegal immigrants to the United States to bolster party strength,” Morris said Saturday.
Further, he insisted that Obama is building toward a one-party nation through changing election laws, including banning voter identifications and requiring states to keep the deceased and people who have moved away on their voter rolls for four years. Doing so encourages voter fraud, he said.
The problems with the economy are another way Obama is pushing for a one-party nation, said Morris.
Wealthier people tend to be Republicans, he said, while lower-income Americans tend to vote Democrat.
“That’s why he’s let the economy get to the low point,” said Morris. “Three million fewer people are now working full time.”
And the issue “isn’t that he’s stupid; it’s not that he’s incompetent,” said Morris. “He wants to change us from a nation of wage earners to a nation of welfare recipients.”
Morris pointed out that there are some millions more people now collecting welfare benefits, Medicaid and food stamps than there were when Obama took office.
When Obama took office, said Morris, one-fourth of the country was on welfare; now, it’s one-third.
Such actions, said Morris, “are all deliberate policies to make this a one-party nation.”
The Obama administration is also taking action to intimidate Republican supporters and contributors as part of the plan, Morris told Schaus.
This includes using the Environmental Protection Agency to hinder manufacturers and the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative groups.
“This is all part of a plan, a scheme to transform the United States into something like Japan and Mexico,” Morris said.
Morris continued that Attorney General Eric Holder resigned on Friday just in time so that Obama can get a replacement “who can cover up what he has done in Justice.”
Obama, said Morris, knows there will be a Republican majority in the Senate after the November midterms, and he wants to replace Holder before that happens.
“He knows he will lose the Senate,” said Morris. “He will get a Republican majority who won’t confirm anyone who will be dishonest in the coverup.”
That is because Obama’s plan for a single-party government is centered in the Attorney General’s office, said Morris, including wiretapping, stopping the voter ID law, and more.
But he doesn’t believe Obama wants to turn the United States into a socialist country, but instead to “set up decades of dominance by Democrats by making it impossible to have a two-party system.
Meanwhile, he doesn’t believe presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has the same “socialist views” as the president, but still, “she will do everything she can to perpetuate this one-party America.”
