Barack Hussein Obama is hatching a secret plot to pull off the ultimate power grab: securing himself a third term in the White House.
At least that's the narrative being spun by right-wing conspiracy theorists, who seem to believe Obama is modeling his presidency after fictional Nixon in Watchmen.
Among the main proponents of this theory—which comes in several different flavors—isStansberry & Associates Investment Research, a publishing firm that hawks financial advice—and also has a history of promoting dubious claims. Even before the president wonreelection, the company began blasting out emails to subscribers of various conservative newsletters, warning of the coming third term of Obama. The emails went out as paid advertisements through the right-leaning Townhall.com, Newsmax, Human Events, andGingrich Marketplace (a spokesman for Newt Gingrich and the vice president of Human Events both claimed this email blast was a mistake).
