Not too long ago, I received an email from a new reader who was upset that I called Obama a “communist.” In her opinion, I had resorted to name calling. I’m sure she is not even reading this site anymore, but it did remind me of something I had read in Pat Buchanan’s, Suicide of a Superpower, and I could have pointed it out to her as backup for my “insulting” name, and so, here, in Pat’s words, is how communism was resurrected in the United States:
As so many like to say— For the Record:
Today’s social decomposition is the first consequence of the collapse of Christianity and the moral order it sustained. This is the triumph of Antonio Gramsci and the cultural revolution of the 1960s. Where the violent victories of Lenin and Mao were eventually reversed, Gramsci, an Italian communist theoretician who died in the 1930s after years in a fascist prison, proved to be the more perceptive Marxist.
On a visit to the Russia of Lenin and Stalin, Gramsci saw that, while the Bolsheviks had succeeded in seizing total power, they had not won over the people. The people obeyed, but hated their rulers and loathed the system. Their love and loyalty went not to the party or the state, but to family, faith, and Mother Russia.
Gramsci concluded that Christianity had immunized the West against Communism. The Russian people had lived for a thousand years with the Christian faith and cultural traditions that caused them instinctively to recoil from Marxism as immoral and unpatriotic and to reject the new Communist order as illegitimate, godless, and evil. Until Christianity was seared out of the soul of Western man, Gramsci concluded, Communism could never take root.
Therefore, Marxists must conduct a “long march through the institution,” religious, cultural, and educational, of the West, uprooting Christianity and its teachings about God, man, and morality to create a new people who would not reflexively reject Marxism. Gramsci was a diagnostician of society and the cultural Marxism he preached triumphed into the West while the revolutions of Lenin, Stalin, and Mao ultimately failed in the East.
As Mark Stein pointed out recently, you can elect all the conservatives you want, but if your institutions are all corrupted, it’s an uphill battle. I grew up in the sixties, and I remember the most popular book on campus at the time that EVERYBODY just had to read was “Three Who Made a Revolution” by Bertram D. Wolfe, a rather glorified account of Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky. Friedrich Nietzsche’s, the “Antichrist” was also being taught and it was being discussed as the one book that would change your life.
When most of us got out of college and into the real world, we went back to our parents way of thinking….but the ones who stayed in academia and the government are still endorsing the old Marxists plans, because Gramsci’s idea really took them over. Our universities are filled with Marxists, communists, and liberals who even admit to being socialists and communists.
Is Obama a product of this communism that over took our universities in the 1960s?
Absolutely, as is Hillary Clinton…although there are many other facets mixed in to Obama’s rule of law: He’s fascistic, and almost monarchial, the man blends them all, but at the core of his makeup is what he learned from all the communists that mentored him: His mother, his father, and Frank Marshall Davis:
Barack Obama spent his formative years at the feet of the renowned communist, Frank Marshall Davis.
In an article entitled, “Obama’s Communist Mentor,” Cliff Kincaid identifies the man who was most influential in Obama’s life and education, as Frank Marshall Davis.
The record shows that Barack Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with frequent guest, Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, “Dreams From My Father,” refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”
The 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified Davis as a Communist Party USA member (CPUSA). What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.
As we watch Obama lawlessly promote his Marxists philosophy, I have to wonder again:
Was I resorting to calling Obama a communist? Was it unfounded?
He has already declared it. Fleas Navida! Now the black unemployment will go up to 50 percent, but don’t worry…all minorities will all get nice homes and nice cars because that’s the promise of HUD, if Congress does not stop it. Obama is fast on this:
From CNS NEWS……
To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.
Under the Fair Housing Act, HUD requires grantees, such as cities, that receive federal housing funds to “affirmatively further fair housing.”
(Would this mean you have no say in WHO you sell your house too? OR…everyone is entitled to a house no matter what?)
Under the proposed rule, the neighborhood data provided by HUD will be used to evaluate patterns of integration and segregation, racial and ethnic concentrations of poverty, such as zoning, financing, infrastructure planning and transportation — create, perpetuate or alleviate segregation.
(Translation: Somebody is going to design our neighborhoods and fill them with quota’s of different nations and cultures. Nobody asks WHY we need this because in my block alone, I can count—five families of Muslims, four families of Chinese, five families of black, and a few families of Bosnians, mixed among the whites. All we are missing are Indians. AND…will the rich behind the gated communities on Martha Vineyard have to abide by this rule of law?)
Wherever HUD points its finger near you, as an area of [politically-correct] interest — unless you are a developer who is politically-connected with the left and HUD and therefore likely to be part of HUD’s ambitions — the value of your property will likely decline. REIT’s and large real estate firms, basically take over the traditional real estate game of many individuals.
(Is that why my property taxes soared while my property value declined?)
Real Estate Investment Trusts who are bent on gaining from more and more dense apt. and condo developments, are for the rule; the destruction of your private dwelling / farm / ranch / business … property value is not their problem.
(So, they can by government degree, knock my property off the monopoly board?)
To my Nobody eyes, this social engineering has been going on for years. It’s one of the reasons we had the 2008 financial debacle.
Families who couldn’t afford big homes, were practically given them by our government—yes, the banks were forced by that lovable Barney the Gay.
This is new?
As most of you know, I don’t live too far from Ferguson, and according to everyone, it is about to explode, despite all the HUD housing that is there. All my life I have shopped regularly at the businesses there, mostly taking place on a main strip called West Florissant. I often visited the big strip mall, that had a Sam’s’ a Wal-Mart, Big Lots— Home Depot. And yes, I’m MAD that because of Obama, I can’t shop there anymore.
I can’t blame Obama for that thug called Mike Brown you might say? Yes I can.
What most of you may NOT know, is that the city of Ferguson is just one of many suburbs of North St. Louis, which is 60 percent black, and 40 percent white. What you see happening in Ferguson, are the welfare blacks. But, hop on the 270 highway, (where some poor guy was shot last week in the back while driving on the highway, just passing West Florissant) go West, and come over to just a street from my neighborhood, and you will see beautiful brand new subdivisions, which expand the area of a good five Fergusons, and where the houses START at $195,00 and go on up to $350,000.
At least half of these homes belong to black families. I know. I walk those neighborhoods every single day. And the diversity has been there for quite some time. In my neighborhood, (Which is much older) it’s mostly older retired white folks, mixed in with the poorer black families, AND Muslims, AND Philippine’s, AND Chinese.
Growing up here, it was mainly white. Not anymore.
And yet, there ARE no jobs in St. Louis. Only teachers. Only government. Like Detroit, we now only have ‘service” jobs. Sure, Boeing is still here, but most of those people do NOT live in North County.
So, where ARE they getting all this money to pay for those giant houses?
You tell me. As far as I know, they all have government jobs, and Barney Frank specials.
But, here’s the dichotomy,…or should I say, bold face lie. There are sections of cities in St. Louis, that are filled with the poor blacks. But…more blacks have been fostered into the middle class than ever before…they are in many ways, surpassing the whites.
Now, that the blacks from the city have been redistributed into North Country, the city of St. Louis has lost it’s tax base. Now they want to merge all of St. Louis’ surrounding cities into one big lump and put every town under one roof. A real tower of Obama kabuki kabob.
Somewhere in some social engineering project, the elites thought that THIS was the way to go: FORCE a cultural mix of just about every kind of nation on the earth, and make sure they are all separate groups with nothing to bind them. Nobody has anything in common with anybody else, it makes for a fuse ready to be lit.
You have the tear the work up, before you replace it: And that’s exactly what Obama had in mind when he said this:
Yes, change America to the NEW WORLD ORDER, which looks pretty much like the old world order in Dr. Zhivago.
(Thanks to Tioga for the heads up.)
Liberals think all human beings can be socially engineered to their own ideas of utopia—-conservatives want to stick with what has worked in the past. Liberals are idealists, conservatives are pragmatists.
In the book, The Storm Before the Calm, A New Humanity Manifesto, Neale Donald Walsch has just the way to get all humanity to get along:
Wealth will be redefined, with enormous consequences for society. What humans strive for, what humans work for, will have nothing to do with the accumulation of money, but rather the accumulation of value within their lives, for their families and for humanity as a whole.
Nobody Says: Accumulation of ‘value’? Who decides what is of value? What if some people think they are more ‘valuable’ than others?
The redefining of wealth will also produce a new kind of currency. Equal Value Exchange Credits (evecs) will be a new currency denomination, and it will take the form of any exchange, not merely the exchange of paper or coins of financial accounting credits, which brings equal value to both sides in a transaction. Those who do “Gods’ work” to earn more than modes amounts money without being made wrong.
Originally the purpose of economics was not to make a profit. The original purpose was simply to establish a system under which people could trade with each other, exchanging their goods and sharing their abilities, so that the entire community could survive. There is enough of everything we need for all of us to be truly happy and all we have to do is find a way to share it.
Nobody Says: Will Obama share Air Force One with me? And besides, this is communism 101…Hey…I saw Doctor Zhivago..TWICE!
What a bunch of malarkey. Mr. Walsch has been regurgitating the Future Shock of Alvin Toffler.
Mr. Walsch, like many liberals who would NEVER dare share their wealth, is busy writing another one of his utopian books as we speak, and someone somewhere, will buy this, and dream of a world where everybody will all have free everything.
Hey, I have an old guitar I want to trade…and I want a month’s worth of lobster.
What? Not a fair trade?
Okay. I’ll throw in my old Willie Nelson records.
You don’t have a record player?
What? I’m trading you the value of a guitar which will get you a lifetime of pleasure and that FAR outweighs the value of a month’s worth of succulent Lobsters!
As you can see, this won’t work. Everything has a different value to everyone else. I can’t help it you can’t play guitar.
God…I LOVE synchronicity…I was trying to find a theme for my NOBODY WINS post tonight, and I thought I’d remark about this book I got from the library. It’s all about the new ‘theme’ that the liberal minds are trying to explore. You know….they are trying to destroy “god” by building the, “YOU are god” dearie— worship your own soul! “-–BS. And then, tonight I ran into this from Arianna Huffington:
Wherever I go around the world, I see the same hunger to live our lives with more meaning and purpose and less unnecessary stress and burnout. This is the goal of a new online course being offered by the University of Santa Monica, which I’m delighted we have arranged to offer free for HuffPost readers. Entitled “33 Days of Awakening Through Loyalty to Your Soul,” the class is designed to teach us how to nurture a sense of well-being, joy, purpose and fulfillment. Of course, there are going to be challenges along the way, but as the course’s founders, Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick, show, there are ways in which many of these challenging moments can in fact strengthen and reaffirm our sense of purpose and well-being instead of taking us off-course.
Good lord. That’s exactly what the author of the book I’m reading wants to do— Program our minds..but he wants us all to have a conversation on his website so he can carefully ‘guide’ it.
Well, I could certainly use less stress—– I was having trouble the last few weeks, (As you know, I have been too close to Ferguson) but alas, I forget the liberal bleeding hearts out in the world are suffering much more than I. They break out in hives if just one person is suffering over in India, or one immigrant child doesn’t like the food in Texas. This liberal stress usually last until they can still get their morning Caramel Cappuccino with double the nuts—for protein. Yes, the nut is replacing the hamburger for protein, haven’t you notice all the ‘protein’ bars? Soon…BUG Bars.
WAKE UP! Pay attention.
For those of you who don’t read, or who are not paying attention, the liberals for a while have been trying desperately to ‘unite’ the world in some kind of NEW religion, where everyone will feel happy, joyous, peaceful, serene in a world with no problems, no fighting, no wars…
Oprah took a stab at it..this new religion. She failed. Then everyone read her “THE SECRET” book, in which it says…”Follow your heart. Follow your soul. Everything will just COME to you!”
Hahahahaha…only if you happen to be in Oprah’s audience when she gave away the cars.
So, I’m going to post here, for sheer entertainment, what the New World Order of elite liberals are trying to do. They are trying to sell you communism wrapped in a NEW Earth religion.
Hey, if I don’t tell you, how are you going to NOT laugh?
The book I got this stuff out of is called: The Storm Before the Calm by Neale Donald Walsch. (see picture.)
First off: Walsch SWEARS that God…had a personal conversation with HIM, and told him what to do. There IS going to be an overhaul of humanity. Here’s some of the lessons god taught him:
- Nothing dies. (We are all reincarnated.) Therefore the soul is ALWAYS joyful to leave.
- We must take responsibility for our past. ( All western civilization should now suffer.)
- WE are creating earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes. and global warming. This is all man-made.
- We must abandoned our traditions and ancestors in order to evolve.
- You are ONLY here to assist in the evolution of your species.
- The sixties were GREAT! (Mr. Walsch was obviously stoned and had a lot of sex after rock concerts.)
- Your life isn’t about YOU.
- Transfer the money spent on defense to feeding the world.
- If a person attacks another, it’s because he is suffering.
- We need a growth model based on given people more time to enjoy life, and less stuff.
- There IS no right or wrong. Religion is oppressive.
- Nobody is better than anybody else. (Unless of course…you LIKE the “old culture.” (That’s what he calls religions and our founders.)
- There is no such thing as misbehaving in the eyes of God. ( Bill Clinton has this down.) All sex is a joy. (He says nothing about rape, but if you want to screw your best friend’s spouse…feel free!)
And then he goes into economics. It’s pretty simple: Everybody in the world gives 10 percent of their income to the government. The state takes care of everything.
Which means, to Mr. Walsch, an end to the endless struggle for bigger, better, more. An end to discrimination. If people don’t want to work, that’s okay too. They can just…be. They will still receive the same thing as everybody else.
He calls this new economic system: Beingism. Yes, you can just sit and be lazy, have a lot of sex, in your trailer park.
BUT…if you don’t work, they will put your name on a list on the internet. There will be…INTERNET SHAME! (Millions will reincarnate to escape)
Okay…enough. You get the idea.
And so, they will keep trying to come up with a new “religion,” to sooooooooth all our pains.
You can call it whatever you like: Go into the future with progressive “Beingism” communism, or try to rekindle the “old culture” ….and which one do you think is going to ‘evolve’ the species?
Yes, Mr. Walsch, said God SPOKE to him, and he’s on a mission…we all must talk, and teach the kids, what god REALLY wants.
So, when I read Arianna Huffington trying to sell the same “We are all stressed out dears, we need to find our souls.” I think I’ll keep my soul to myself.
I would rather go down to the crossroads–something tells me, I might get a better deal.
On a lighter note, if we go by “God’s” conversation, wouldn’t the liberals just all be better off reincarnated?
We DO want them to feel joyful now…don’t we?
My husband and I did just that last week. I had gotten a “Buy one get one free” meal at Denny’s and saving ten dollars off the check was real exciting for us.
Thomas, the waiter was more than friendly. In fact, almost to a fault. And I noticed that everybody was asking for “Thomas” as they came in the door. This guy was being smart. At the end of our meal, he asked us to please always request him when we came to eat.
“So Thomas,” I said. “How long have you been a waiter?”
“Well, I used to work as a waiter in a little town not far from here, but the waiters had to put all the tips in a pot and split it evenly. I felt I was getting ripped off. Here, I get to keep my own tips.”
Sadly, I hear more and more restaurants are doing this. Far be it for one waiter to make more money than the rest because he WORKS harder!
Shaina Brown is a single mother who works two jobs to support her three kids, so when a patron at the Waffle House where she works said, “I’m going to bless you tonight,” and gave her a $1,000 tip, she was ecstatic.
But guess what? The manager contacted the customer and told him he couldn’t put that much on his credit card, so they took it off.
It’s communism with an American Happy Face.
This is the new economic policy of our great wealthy leaders of the world. They see their own tremendous greed has made them richer than they could imagine…and they don’t blame themselves, oh no, they blame capitalism At a meeting where they all got together to discuss the problem with ‘capitalism” (read here) this was said:
The morning’s keynote address was delivered by Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund. She quoted both Karl Marx’s prediction that capitalism “carried the seeds of its own destruction,” and Pope Francis’ characterization of increasing inequality as “the root of social evil.” She came out against a favorite centrist reaction to rising inequality—“that ultimately we should care about equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome.” The problem, Madame Lagarde said, was that opportunity could never be equal in a deeply unequal society. She called for more progressive income tax systems and greater use of property tax.
Right. TAX the poor guy some more. That ought to work. NOW that they’ve all made their trillions, they want the rest of us to live under communism.
But, until the world become the plutocratic moronic communistic universe–
I plan to ask for Thomas.
The Headline on Drudge today: COMMUNISM WORKS!
FINALLY! A Florida Representative, Joe Garcia, (Cuban) has opened up his big mouth and admitted the democratic agenda: It’s about time.
“And two of the safest cities in America, two of them are on the border with Mexico,” Garcia continued. “And of course, the reason is we’ve proved that Communism works. If you give everybody a good government job, there’s no crime.”
What can you expect from a guy who picks his earwax and eats it? He got that habit as a kid in Cuba, because in communism, you don’t get much food. Therefore…ear wax, is soon to be on Michelle’ Obama’s new lunch program. Soon we’ll be sending ear wax to Africa…I’ve got plenty to donate.
This video hits a VERY personal note to me. This speech was given in front of the Missouri legislature, and as you can see by the very FEAR of this teacher in coming forth about Common Core, she is afraid she will lose her job. And she is right to be afraid. Our educational system in Missouri (and I suspect most other states) is a top-down dictatorial sewage of corruption.
I know: My son showed up to his high school in his senior year, and was told he couldn’t attend. He needed a doctor’s excuse to come into the school.
To make a long story short, he was suffering from a disorder called DSPS, (Delayed Sleep Phrase Syndrome) and instead of working with us, the school, just kicked him out.
Illegally. They are NOT allowed to kick any kid out of school without a trial.
I went through all the channels, from the local school board, to the educational board in Jefferson City, to the governor of Missouri, because my son had done absolute nothing wrong but be sick.
I even went to the top lawyer here, Brown and Crupen (Yes, the ones who Glenn Beck says is so honorable) and that man just heard my name and started screaming at me.
Screaming “You don’t have a CASE!’ How did he know what I was even going to say?
He was on the school board payroll.
I then went to the Post Distract, who was interested in the story, (good kid kicked out of school) but then the reporter, wouldn’t return my phone calls. They too, bow to the state.
My son was not let on the school grounds. I read in the paper that one of his friends was caught selling drugs on school grounds, he got a few days suspension. Over 1100 black kids who didn’t even live in our district, got to go half days. My taxes paid for THEM.
The proud day a parent feels when their son graduates, was deprived of us. His prom. His friends. His senior year.
So why did they kick him out? WHY? I told him he had no choice but to get his GED.
He scored so high on the GED test he got a scholarship, but that’s a whole other story.
I was threatened and harassed, so many times by so many school officials, and all this for a kid who not only had always had top grades, but had never even had one mark on his record for anything.
He WAS in the top ten (IQ) of his class. (And that’s what I think is the problem.)
Two years later, (after my son had been property diagnosed at Washington Universally sleep clinic) they school sent me a letter and said my son could come back.
They had been collecting money for his attendance—all that time. They just said he quit. (lie)
So I was that woman. I know what she is feeling. She knows what is happening to the kids, especially the good kids, the smart kids, and it’s an abomination. The people placed in the school administrations are Gestapo’s. And they all get big bucks. Notice how they did not let that woman talk long?
If you have a child in school, you now must teach him at home as well. Especially math. They have screwed up math so badly IT’S ALMOST A JOKE.
There are still school in the U.S. that are good, but the majority, especially in democratic regions, are run like military and they are destroying whatever brain you child might have.
And the parent is powerless. Now…the teachers will be too. Common Core is a joke. It’s control, and money for big corporations, and the new surveillance state.
Damn you Bill Gates…
Please watch this, and know, that the threat is real.
I know, I learned the hard way that the corruption goes all the way to the top.
So Congratulations Susan Kimball. You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. Thank you for being brave and standing up to the Common Criminals and for all kids everywhere.
(And yes, I’m STILL pissed off at what they did to my son.)
“I hope there is not another Cold War,” Clinton said during the question and answer portion of an appearance in Montreal. “Obviously, nobody wants to see that. I think that is primarily up to Putin.” —-Hillary Clinton, 2014.
“We’re hoping that Russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the Cold War. We don’t see it that way. We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States – this is not Rocky IV, believe me,” Kerry said, referencing the 1985 movie.—John Kerry, 2014
Our approach as the United States is not to see these as some Cold War chessboard in which we’re in competition with Russia,” Obama said. “Our goal is to make sure that the people of Ukraine are able to make decisions for themselves about their future, that the people of Syria are able to make decisions without having bombs going off and killing women and children … because a despot wants to cling to power.” Barack Obama
Funny isn’t it? Here we have three top democrats who think that just by saying: “Hey, we can’t go back into the cold war Putin…we already did that!” That Putin will just say, “You’re right. “
That’s what you get when you put people in power whose total foreign policy achievements between the three of them amount to just how many secret service people they could find a hotel for when they vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard.
But.—-the cold war is back, and Nobody Remembers this speech that Barry Goldwater gave on the Senate floor, July 14, 1961, when JFK was President.
Here’s a few excerpts about the last “cold war” with Russia, and a few nobody comments.
“As I study the address delivered by the distinguished chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, I find myself becoming first surprised, then amazed, and finally, alarmed. In essence it strikes me as an argument of continued drifting in the wrong direction: for inaction on all major cold war fronts: For future costly implementations of an outmoded, weak- kneed foreign policy which accomplishes nothing but more and greater losses of freedoms’ territory to the forces of international communism. It is a plea for more useless expenditures in the name of more hopeless objectives. It is part and parcel with the prevalent belief in administration circles that all we have to do is increase the foreign aid budget and Khrushchev will back off. Castro will be rendered ineffective, and a tremendous host of nations will quickly effect social and economic reforms and clasp the United State to their bosom as the savior of underdeveloped areas.”
Nobody Notes: Isn’t this Obama’s whole foreign policy? Give everybody money? Be “nice”?
How many billions has he sent to the Middle East? And now he wants Congress to send billons to the Ukraine, which will end up in Russia, because the Ukraine owes Russia billions, and either way you look at it, that money ends up in Russia. How smart is that? It’s the same game plan that the democrats had back in 1961. He goes on:
“And the way things are going I am beginning to wonder whether it will ever come—those in official capacity in this country will have to stand up and tell the American people why it is that this approach to the realities of the cold war has cost us billions and billions of dollars while communism continues to gain, both in prestige and territory. The plan fact is that this is not a way to meet effectively the challenge of the cold war. It is the way to weaken freedom by draining our strength and undermines our economy…
“What pleases them (Russia) is our present policy of making costly commitments throughout the world, commitments which carry with them no element of real strength, but which rest on theoretical dreaming that the way to fight Communist bullets is with relief packages, Communist tanks with plows, Communist bombs with elaborate charts for monetary reform.”
Obama is a true liberal, and the way of the progressives. He thinks just because he himself believe the world should now be over guns, and wars, it will be. And if we just send rebels weapons to fight with, food to nourish them, and money for their leaders, everything will work out okay.
Evidently he was playing golf on 9/ll.
Barry’s Goldwater’s speech was about how even in a cold war, you should insist, and fight, for victory, and he cites a quote from General MacArthur who insists we have the RIGHT to prosecute war for the purpose of winning.
The best that might be said for the policy makes responsible for these monumental blunders is that they did not comprehend the truism, as old as history itself, that a great nation which voluntary enters upon war and does not fight it through to victory must ultimately accept all of the consequences of defeat, that in war…there is no substitute for victory…..
Putin is playing to win….and Obama..
Is concentrating on March Madness.
How can we not lose?
The big headline today: Vladimir Putin is taking back the Ukraine, and the rich western elites, who are busy enjoying their ski vacations in Snow Mass and Switzerland, are going to have to call a meeting, because, gee…what are they going to do?
They thought Putin would accept his place in the world, and now, they are afraid. Obama dismantled the missiles that protected Europe and destroyed our military, downsized NATO, and has left the middle East open to the Muslims Brotherhood, and doesn’t even seem concerned about Europe, or Putin.
At the emergency meeting of ambassadors from the 28 Nato member states, it was said: “Russia must stop its military activities and its threats.” The United States dramatically intensified pressure on Moscow, threatening to remove Russia from the G8 club of developed economies
There is a dirty little secret .shssssssssss. You might have figured it out by now, maybe…but frankly, because I watch the same cable networks as everyone else, it really didn’t dawn on me either, until I read this today:
The article was called Russian’s New Icon: (Time Magazine, November 9, 1998) Remember—by 1998 Russia had been defeated by Ronald Reagan, and Yeltsin the great American backed puppet, was a drunk, and so a man named Primakov became Prime Minister.
The Afghanistan war had depleted Russia of men and money, and the great Ronald Reagan saw an opportunity to defeat Russia when they were at their weakest, and he did. Russia broke up into little pieces.
Here’s the paragraph that struck me:
Though he seems every inch a disciplinarian, Primakov has not yet been able to shake the new government into shape. Ministers contradict one another in public. They unnerve the markets and the IMF with widely varying figures for the amount of new money that will have to be printed to keep the economy afloat.
Primakov cannot wave Russia’s current disaster away. Wages have to be paid on time, even if the government still cannot afford payment of back salaries for a while. the Nations’ idled factories have to start production again, even if they are not producing anything of great quality.
Sound familiar? This is what an American reporter was saying about Russia. Now, close you’re eyes, and that is America, 2014.
Now…we don’t get the real news from the world here in America. Sure, we have our internet, but FACEBOOK keeps most people occupied with their favorite dog picture. To the rest of the world, America has already collapsed…and it happened in 2008. Bush had spent trillions in Iraq and Afghanistan, 9/11 destroyed the economy more, the rich guys played casino, and we could have recovered…but then the second blow, came. A radical Marxist was elected, and he put the final nail in any recovery.
So now the tables are turned: Putin…like Reagan, sees a weak nation, with a communist sympathizer as its’ President. He trumped Obama in Syria, and he has been playing his cards carefully, getting surrounding nations dependent on Russia’s energy, and so, he knows it’s time: He wants to reunite the old Russia.
And Nobody will stop him. Not Europe, not Obama. Nobody. Because, we just don’t have the money, or the will of the American people.
What does our President do with the news? He just goes about his day…as if it’s no big deal. After all, from Obama’s point of view, he probably thinks he would do the very same thing as Putin.
And so the above speech was taken by us, and the rest of the world as a joke. My favorite part was when Obama said that the Ukraine people have a
“Universal right to decide their own future.”
Wow, from the lips of a hypocrite. Yes, Obama stands for everything he thinks you’ll fall for.
Does Obama let the America people decide their own future? Hell no. These are just platitudes that he doesn’t believe in. Obama has almost complete control over the media, with just FOX and talk radio holding him to account, (which he recently tried to take over with the FCC) and he has managed to make all Americans who do not want to become Russia, or communist, look like uncaring, unfeeling and backwards fools.
On George Stephanopoulos today, the communist Van Jones, (who was working for Obama before he lost his job thanks to Glenn Beck) could not stop attacking the tea party and how it’s backward, and weak. Almost the whole hour was spent on attacking Americans. Russia didn’t get much attention.
But…Russia is rising.
It’s very obvious, that the rest of the world has already seen America, as no longer on the world stage. Even Britain ignored Obama when he wanted their help on Syria.
Yes, it’s a secret…kept from the American people daily, Why we have global warming to worry about. Snow is everywhere.
America cannot stand up to Russia, or anybody anymore. We have left, like Russia before us, Iraq and Afghanistan in defeat. (Not our men, our leaders) Trillions spent for nothing. Good men and women lost forever.
Simply because both Bush and Obama were afraid to look…mean. They cared more about their appearances in history, (and their global corporate connections) than the survival of the country.
Both should be tried for treason, but that’s just my opinion.
Whether our politicians did this on purpose, or if they were just too busy watching their portfolios it hardly matters now.
Can America come back? Sure. Anything is possible. Russia, like America, has an older population, but he has the clear advantage because his army will not be filled with gays, pregnant women, and held to impossible directions to not “hurt the enemy.”
When the communist that is your enemy starts looking more like a leader than the communist leader of your own country, then your ass truly is in deep water.
Or— Those With Big Bones, Hide Them NOW!
She’s Italian, she was raised Catholic, and she fits right into what I was going to talk about today. Her name is Liz Trotta. She is a contributing commentator on Fox News, and this morning her subject was…the Pope. People should stop picking on him, especially Rush Limbaugh, she said. She went on: Just because the Pope said that he knew and liked a lot of Marxists, doesn’t mean that he likes Marxism.
According to MS Trotta, the Pope sees the great misery and poverty in the world, and he is just doing what Jesus would do, what we all should do—- be concerned about the little children of this world growing up in poverty. (It’s the new progressive argument.)
I had just read a piece from Charles Krauthammer’s new book, “Things that Matter” called, The Mirror-Image Fallacy, (Time, Aug., 1983) in which the good psychiatrist explains the progressive concept of Solipsism, which says that everyone in the world is alike.
“Fundamentally, it is a radical denial of the otherness of others.” said Charles.
This philosophy —everyone in the world is the same, because we all sleep, drink, feel pain, get common colds etc, and therefore utopia could be reached if we just got the right system in place—is crazy. Nobody needs to suffer, they believe.
I hate to say this, but sometimes it’s what people leave OUT of their talking points that can really get you pissed off. (Obama does this every day.) In Liz’s great defense of the Pope, she forgot to mention that the Pope WAS attacking capitalism. Sorry Liz, that quite a big point to leave out.
h/t The Exchange:
The pope has gone a bit overboard, however, in his recent attack on free-market capitalism. In a lengthy “apostolic exhortation,” Pope Francis rails against “an economy of exclusion” and a “ financial system which rules rather than serves.” The pope points out that, in a time of miraculous technological progress, alarming numbers of people still live in misery and desperation.
“The culture of prosperity deadens us,” the pope writes. “We are thrilled if the market offers us something new to purchase; and in the meantime all those lives stunted for lack of opportunity seem a mere spectacle; they fail to move us.”
The pope has urged everyone from charities to Italian authorities “to do everything possible so that every family can have a house.” this holiday season.
Great idea! Hey, that Vatican is pretty big— just THINK of how many homeless families you could fit in that sucker.
According to the Pope, and the progressives, the only way to rectify this horrible injustice of people who have nothing, is to redistribute the bones…I mean the money, by force if we must. Both Obama, and now the Pope, and quite a few members of Congress are ready to implement…equality upon the world. Obamacare is just the start.
(John McCain would add the Ukraine, Japan, North Korea, the Sudan, Syria…..Mercury, the planet Venus…)
The world leaders are desperate in their compassion, are they not? Even Liz today was full of it. I was looking for the picture of the poor starving children walking barefoot in Rio to pop up behind her.
To the progressives, the only way to bring utopia to the earth is to take a bone from one dog, and give it to the other dog. Anybody who has dogs knows there WILL be a fight. Even the sweetest dog on the planet will bare her teeth and growl, protect that bone, even hide it, from the other dog. That is her bone, and NOBODY has a right to it. This happens every single morning in my house.
It’s dog survival 101.
And everybody knows the best way to lift people out of poverty is to let the people run their own lives, in free markets, without government interfering, and collect as many bones as they possible can. And that’s true capitalism. That was once the American Dream.
My subject today was going to be when did America stop believing in individual success? When did the American Dream turn into— America is greedy, selfish, and rich?
When did the man become less important than the collective? Even in sports, it’s the home-run that wins the games. While the collective can win at many things, true progress is made, in almost every instance, by the individual with a little help from his friends.
(Thank you Ringo)
I know when it happened in my life. The social conditioning started in 1st grade. If one bully hits a kid, and the kid sticks up for himself, BOTH kids are sent to the office. What can of justice is that? There is no justice.
It’s all about teaching that the children must obey and do what’s best for the collective.
If a bully in class damages something while the teacher is gone, and nobody in the class is willing to be beat up by the bully, they remain silent. The whole class will be punished for one man’s crime. I believe this is done in the military too.
Nobody Thinks the very insanity of blaming millions of white people now, for crimes of their ancestors of long ago, is no different than punishing the whole class for crimes none of them committed. We are…forever being conditioned to guilt. And the Catholics and politicians, are masters at it.
It’s one of the reasons a whole race of white people are silent now on the injustices being propelled on them, for crimes they didn’t even commit.
And why should such an intelligent woman such as Liz Trotta, ignore the obvious?. Has she no clue that she is suggesting we all stop buying I-Phones and start giving our money to countries all over the world?
( I don’t have an I Phone, but the black guy who just came over to fix my internet connection had two, which he got the old-fashioned way. He worked for them.)
Liz Trotta, we perhaps could say, is just a product of her Catholic upbringing, which never told her, there isn’t enough bones in the world to fix poverty, and who never pointed out to her, that politicians will go farther than a dog for their right to keep their bones: They hide them in offshore bank accounts while they take ours, which Nobody Thinks is an injustice we have been conditioned to accept.
And speaking of dogs: Today, Raul Castro issued a stern warning to entrepreneurs to not push the boundaries of the state. Nobody is to collect too many bones in Cuba..he is adamant.
I just hope our American doggie survival instincts kick in before it’s too late…and if not, we can always go back to the old Jesse James’ method.
You dig a BIG hole….
Good lord: The day Mandela of Africa died, everyone without exception had nothing but glorious praise for the man who did not hold his white jailers at fault for what they did to him. Most white people were ecstatic about that, since the white race is now considered some kind of continuing demonic race promoting apartheid. I’m sure it’s one of the reasons the rich white politicians made him a big star. (What? You think he did this all by himself? Just like Oprah? He had NO help whatsoever?)
NOW…millions of Americans, including this Nobody whose main information at the time on apartheid was a Stevie Wonder song, are finding out what Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher knew: Mandela was a communist. So the question is: Why,— when he got out of jail, was he such a nice guy? Why did he live in a predominantly all white rich neighborhood? Why was he casting himself as the next Gandhi?
Can a politician control his own image in history? Do they even WANT to?
Step outside: Can you see the sun? Do you want it to shine tomorrow? Of course you do.
Mandela did what Clinton, and Obama do every day: They do whatever is going to make them look good to the history books. They’ll even kill people to keep that legacy. (a future blog) Forgiving whites for jailing him, raised Mandela’s legacy to a whole other level…and that level was very profitably.
It’s all about the branding. It’s all about the money:
Following his death on Thursday at the age of 95, the scramble for control of the Mandela legacy – both financial and moral – will involve his family, the ruling African National Congress (ANC), and the Nelson Mandela Foundation he set up to protect his broader message.
At stake is the inheritance that will go to Mandela’s more than 30 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, some of whom already use the Mandela name and image to market everything from clothing to reality TV.
—-And everyone wants to profit off that glorious Mandela brand. Obama is using it to up his own brand as the son of Mandela. Obama called Mandela in his speech today at the funeral, by his AFRICAN name. (Shouldn’t we honor Obama by calling him by HIS real name: Barry?)
Obama has a lot in common with Mandela. By all accounts, it seems Mandela was a full-fledged communist, most of his life— who studied Islam and hated British colonialism. Exactly what Obama’s early life was all about.
And though at first, Mandela’s prison time was hard…he really didn’t suffer as much as they want you to believe while he was in prison. For many years, he had a very nice life: had hundreds of visitors, got a degree…good food: Oh…he had a lot of time to father 30 children.
- Wow. He fathered his own tribe!
And yes, neither Obama or Mandela seen to have met a communist they didn’t like. Obama, made a big point at the funeral to walk up to Raul Castro and shake his hand with big smiles and kisses for the world to see. This wasn’t some kind of act of “forgive and live together” act. This was because Obama truly likes communism. So did Mandela. His best friends were Fidel Castro and Omar Gaddafi.
Obama killed Gaddafi. So THAT’s why Mandela refused to see him, but hey…do you really think his family, with all the money they are going to make off a President praising their father…Do you think they are going to say, “Obama killed one of Daddy’s best friends!”
We are seeing the groundwork being laid down for Obama’s legacy as the man who challenged the rich greedy white men of America, and put down the apartheid in this country. Forget about the uniting and ending of race in America, Obama has done nothing but fuel the hatred.
Yes… Obama and Mandela had a lot in common. The only difference being, Obama lead a pretty nice middle class life as an American citizen. Mandela…did not. Right now, most blacks in South Africa live on less than $2.00 a day. Mandela, as President, came in with all the right welfare programs, so what has changed?
The black people remain poorer than ever: BUT…they have black Gods now to worship who they know, somewhere, are sitting in multimillion dollar homes. For some odd known reason, they have been brainwashed to believe that that’s a GOOD thing. And that’s the biggest scam about communism: the leaders that promise the moon, end up taking it all for themselves.
As for Obama bowing to Raul Castro, (yes…it’s there…) while at the same time talking about political prisoners being held all over the world?
Who, may I remind everyone: is white.
Pope Francis has used his first major written work to attack capitalism as a “new tyranny,” while urging global leaders to fight poverty and inequality. In a document published Tuesday, Pope Francis denounced the ‘idolatry of money’ and “trickle-down” economic policies, as well as consumerism and a financial system which he says rules rather than serves. The Pope urged politicians to guarantee all citizens “dignified work, education and healthcare.”
This coming from a guy who gets money from the poor and lives in a house which has the biggest collection of art in the world, and probably has his own foot massager. I love a good hypocrite. Gee…another con job. And I thought this guy was going to be the real deal. (sigh)
I side with Mr. Adams who found the Catholic Church full of that very same ‘tyranny.” The Catholic people are poor, but the Vatican is not suffering. Maybe the Pope should practice what he preaches and sell off those Bernini’s so that Peru can have free health care.
I was thinking about the rich today, because I was reading about that very big capitalist, Ross Perot, in Forbes magazine.
True Confession: I voted for Ross Perot…twice. It was said that Ross was the reason Daddy Bush lost to Bill Clinton, and so, the Clinton’s will make sure that some third-party libertarian will run against whomever runs against Hillary, to assure her election, because that worked so well with Bill. It’s all getting rather boring and predictable, isn’t it? Having our Presidents picked years in advance?
The reason I like Perot so much, is that he kept trying to warn everyone about NAFTA, and CAFTA. What he called the sucking sound of America losing its jobs to other countries.
I really don’t think Perot is suffering after his defeat, and neither is Mitt Romney, because they are both what the Pope is talking about: capitalists— In fact, there is one thing both Ross and Mitt have in common: They know how to get the government to fund their big money-making projects and they use that free money from the taxpayers to further their empires.
From “Love That Giant Sucking Sound”, Christopher Helman, Forbes Magazine, Sept., 2013:
The Federal Aviation Administration came to the Perots (in Texas) says Perot Jr., “and asked us to donate land for an airport,” an industrial airport to be built with public funds.
Perot like the idea–and saw a greater opportunity. He convinced Fort Worth Mayor Bob Bolen and the city council of his grand plan. Perot would put up the land for the airport but only if Fort Worth agreed to pay for utilities and infrastructure, allow Perot to operate the airport and promise future tax abatements so he could lure in companies and develop yet more of his land.
Why settle for just an airport?
And this is how it works all over the United States: The billionaires get the ‘people’ to pay for the football stadiums, and malls, and on and on and their property taxes go up, and while jobs ARE created, the bulk of the money goes to….the billionaires.
Why do you think there are more than 500 big B’s on the Forbes lists? And when the Supreme Court gave big companies “personhood”, you have the mom and pop small business up against the Wal-marts. (I understand where the Pope is coming from, but he just doesn’t get it does he?)
The Perot airport has become the main industrial hub for the lower United States. Sharon Boyd, who tried to stop Perot getting public financing had this to say:
“He’s the ultimate welfare baby. He doesn’t do anything without subsides or tax rebates. He has a mentality that views the public sector as a fat pig that’s going to be slaughter anyway, so it might as well be by us.”
So…here’s where maybe somebody should get the Pope aside and ask him: You, dear sir, can fly all over the world BECAUSE men like Ross Perot build airports for your plane to land upon. Maybe you should think about that next time you take a tour.
Is it any wonder the Pope is complaining? Mom and Pop just don’t have the money any more to fork over to the church. Instead of blaming governments for giving handouts and sweet deals to billionaires friends, he is campaigning for communism. Think about that….Communism and the Church.
I can’t wait. Where’s my straw?
Everyone was talking today about how Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin wrote a scathing remark about America in an opinion piece.. The old cold war tensions are starting to blow up again, thanks to BO…and you might think this is the first time Russia has embarrassed the United States, but it’s happened before. Before Putin, there was Nikita Khrushchev.
According to Brian Thomsen in the book: Lies and Propaganda Thought History, America has stepped in deep doo-doo before. We have a habit of losing our spy planes:
In 1960 the cold war was heating up and an effort to defuse the tensions there was a summit meeting for May 16, bringing together the four heads of state of the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Unfortunately on May 1, a U.S. Lockheed U-2 plane disappeared over the sovereign territory of the Soviet Union. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev declared that a “spy plane’ had been shot down, whereupon the United States issued a statement reaffirming the claim that the plane was a ‘weather research aircraft” and the pilot had difficulty with his oxygen equipment during a mission over Turkey” The administration stated, “There was absolutely no deliberate attempt to violate Soviet airspace and never has been.”
The U.S. was lying.
The U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers had left Peshwar, Pakistan, intending to fly over the Soviet Union and land at Bodo, Norway with the intention to photograph Soviet intercontinental ballistic missiles development sites in and around Sverdlovsk and Plesetsk….but he was shot down by a 14 SA-2Guideline surface-to-air missile which brought the plane down. Powers was suppose to destroy the plane and/or himself, but he was captured after he abandoned the aircraft by parachute. The Soviets got the film, and found 7,500 rubles on him.
Powers was put on trial for espionage, pleaded guilty (to avoid being executed) and was convicted on August 19. After serving three years hard labor he was exchanged for Soviet spy master Rudolf Abel in 1962. The Paris summit was called off, and Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, Harold Macmillan, and Khrushchev. didn’t meet and things got worse.
As usual to American politics, a cloak of deniability was quickly fashion for the president to protect him from scandal….of course. Later on, when asked how high he was flying on May 1, 1960, he often replied, “evidently not high enough.” Many of you do not remember, but Obama lost a valuable spy plane to Iran in 2011. No, there wasn’t a pilot, but gee…nothing like handing over our best technology. Nobody Really remembers that now do they? That was an even bigger blooper than the U-2 taking pictures.
Yes, Nobody Remembers so I just thought I’d bring it up. Oh yes, George W. Bush lost a plane in China…but…he at least tried to get it back.
