A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing - Since the 1960s, Saul Alinsky's words and famous work, "Rules for Radicals", have influenced political tactics and theories, especially on issues concerning social justice. Behind his thesis lurks a deadly agenda that threatens the very core beliefs of Christianity and the Church. Discover how Alinsky successfully pulled the wool over society's eyes as the experts in this compelling original docu-drama unravel the lies and deception he spun, and ultimately reveal him as "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing".

Keep In Mind that Most of Democrats in Senate and Congress are Not True Democrats, They Are Marxists-Leninists-Communists Working Very Hard to Destroy United States by Taking Side with Illegal Invasion of USA, Anti-American Hate and Terrorists. There Will Be No Peace In This Country Until These Traitors are Arrested For Treason and an Accessory to Crimes. Looks Like That Democratic Voters Have No Brain and Heart Capacity to Vote for Decent People in Their Godless Democratic Party.

What can go wrong now?

Russians now armed all their planes and all forces on the ground in Syria with missiles against other planes. ISIS has no planes. Russia is not there to fight ISIS. Chinese and Cubans Communist forces are now in Syria helping Russia to kill US allies. 

Putin created refugee crisis and he is protecting main enemy of Israel - Iran. Palestinian terrorists are now getting very active in Israel because their old Communist Russian friends in Syria are now very close.

What can go wrong now? Nobody talks about Iran any more.

Putin created refugee crisis for his own benefit. Russia is and always was main problem in the Middle East. Turkey is a part of NATO unfortunately.

There are too many gullible Putin's Dick Suckers on the Internet. Hitler had many too in USA and in all other countries around the world before WWII.

Kremlin spreading fake news again.

Liberation Theology Icon

Before Pope Francis' visit to United States of America I did not know nothing about Dorothy Day and other "Catholic" Communists. Pope Francis in his speech to US Congress mentioned an American "Catholic" Communist Propagandist and Agitator Dorothy Day saying that we should look up to her. So I checked the Internet and found many shocking things about her and her heavy activity in Communist Subversion of America. 

I wanted also to know reason why Pope Francis would not use much better Catholic example for all American People and why he did not mention continuous holocaust of abortion, children body parts sold by Planned Parenthood, gay marriages and other things, then I stumbled on this shocking info regarding one Liberation Theology Icon and Pope Francis:

Pope Francis lifted 29-year suspension on liberation theology icon a Central American priest the Rev. Miguel D’Escoto Brockman who was suspended by the Vatican in the 1980s for his involvement in the political activities of Nicaragua’s Communist Sandinista movement.

Looks like that Rev. Brockman was one of those Communists who massively disrespected Pope John Paul II during his visit to Nicaragua, by encouraging the crowd to catcall and shout down the voice of Pope John Paul in his outdoor address. Looks like that Rev. Miguel D’Escoto Brockman was in that time the Foreign Minister in the Sandinist Communist Government according to this report from NY Times:

Newsweek Calls Donald Trump, Fascist.

There have been a lot of references to GOP presidential contender Donald Trump being a “fascist” on social media. We should exercise some caution in using this term to refer to “the Donald.” Of course the US neo-communist media propaganda monolith is the source of these new accusations. Name-calling is a major tactic of the controlling communist elite in America.

Writing in Newsweek, leftist libertarian (most libertarians and conservatives are now racist leftists) Jeffrey A. Tucker situates Trump firmly in the tradition of interwar period fascism. “Since World War II, the ideology he represents has usually lived in dark corners, and we don’t even have a name for it anymore. The right name, the correct name, the historically accurate name, is fascism. I don’t use that word as an insult only. It is accurate.” Is Trump a fascist?

[Newsweek claimed that Trump gives,“ the Fascist salute?”]

Trump’s campaign is very much a right-wing populist campaign that appeals to disaffected whites, including the middle class and white workers, by placing the blame for their ills on immigrants, black racism and Moslem power-mongering within the USA. In fact, America owes Donald Trump a great debt for exposing the racist and reactionary nature of democrat/republican one-party politics in the U.S. He has ripped the curtain away to reveal the way things really work. His statesman-like stance on the 14th amendment, “birthright” citizenship, and on immigration has forced the professional politicians in the GOP field to take positions that they would never openly take. Graham, Huckabee, Bush and all of the others have become desperate to posture to the right in response to Trumpism. This includes attacks on the concept of “birthright” citizenship that’s part of the 14th amendment. Trump has gone as far as declaring the Reconstruction-era amendment “unconstitutional.” Heretofore, all republican conservatives were afraid to resist any of the hundreds of totalitarian pushes carried out by Dictator Obama.

Of course, it’s possible for a right-wing populist movement to grow over into overt fascism, but this is not what we are seeing now. The ruling class doesn’t need a fascist movement to keep its hold on power against a rising workers’ movement, to control immigration, to support Islam, or to keep the Black Lives Matter movement alive and lethal. The communists control all policing in America and have bragged that they can "easily crush" any non-violent resistance by the “weak white consumer class.”

Writing about German fascism, Leon Trotsky defined fascism as a mass movement of ruined petty bourgeois forces and de-classed workers who serve as a “battering ram” against the working class. The purpose is to decisively defeat the working class and ensure the continued rule of Marxist Capitalism. Trotsky wrote:

“At the moment that the ‘normal’ police and military resources of the bourgeois dictatorship, together with their parliamentary screens, no longer suffice to hold society in a state of equilibrium — the turn of the fascist regime arrives. Through the fascist agency, capitalism sets in motion the masses of the crazed petty bourgeoisie and the bands of declassed and demoralized lumpen-proletariat — all the countless human beings whom finance capitalism itself has brought to desperation and frenzy by unfair distribution of privileges.

“From fascism the bourgeoisie demands a thorough job; once it has resorted to methods of civil war, it insists on having peace for a period of years. And the fascist agency, by utilizing the petty bourgeoisie as a battering ram, by overwhelming all obstacles in its path, does a thorough job. After fascism is victorious, Marxist finance capitalism directly and immediately gathers into its hands, as in a vise of steel, all the organs and institutions of sovereignty, the executive administrative, and educational powers of the state…”

(Trotsky, Fascism, What it is and how to fight it)

Trump plays with fire

Trump’s rhetoric on immigration and accurate characterization of Mexican illegal immigrants as criminals and rapists has tapped into a reservoir of reactionary middle class, majority sentiment that goes deep in U.S. society. The fact that a minority ruling elite composed of communist/black/Moslem fanatics hates that white population segment, is enough for their propaganda machine to brand it as fascist.

White nationalism is a more mainstream political idea now than it has ever been. White nationalism is the notion that the U.S. has always been, and always should be, a white-controlled nation. Most white American Independents accurately perceive that the future of this nation is in danger because of the demographic changes initiated by obama, as he continues to pour into the US annually, millions of illegal blacks, Moslems and other criminal types. For example, obama sent millions of Somalian jihadist "refugees" into Maine cities, where no blacks ever resided before. "That's the idea, I promised change," obama smirked. At the same time, the US communist media constantly celebrates their shaped, projected future where whites will no longer be a majority.  Most intelligent people decry the acceptance of minority dictatorships by conservative republicans, while simultaneously those pretend-patriots brazenly deny the first edict of democracy, majority rule. Talk of revenge is heard frequently in America as bad blood boils, in answer to the discovery of new traitors almost daily.

Yet,there is a significant white nationalist milieu inside the Republican Party around people like Pat Buchanan and Paul Craig Roberts, a former Reagan Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. Roberts is, more recently, a writer for the VDARE.com website. Roberts is also a frequent contributor to Counterpunch, and his work is often reposted by unwitting antiwar activists and progressives because his work often comes off as left-sounding.

The politics of white nationalism is a distinct political current in the U.S. right wing (libertarians and conservatives are now on the left wing) that exploits shifting demographics, but also economic fears, and a backlash against perceived successes gained by over 50 years of illegal special privileges for blacks. The  eagerness of America's mainstream media to proclaim "white racism" where none exists,  in-congruently clashes with reluctance of the same media to challenge more pernicious black racism. The  permission given by republican and conservative black-racists to advance the black supremacy agenda and elect a perennial black president while denying a white president for eternity, is viewed with silent, simmering hostility by a white majority, about to boil over..

. The white nationalist trend is more interested in permeating the political system and gaining strategic positions for continued white majority rule. (In Africa, the communists celebrate black majority rule, but in America, white majority rule is “racism,” to the controlling communist tyranny.) White majority rule is a polarized value that has emerged in response to the communist-democrat infiltration, subversion and dominance  easily obtained over conservatives and republicans.

The white nationalist political trend is somewhat different from the old extreme right in the sense that they take a more electoralist and permeationist approach to the major parties. We can trace this trend’s foray into mainstream politics back to 1992, the same year as Buchanan’s “culture war” speech at the GOP convention. An open cultural war has raged ever since.

Buchanan’s right populism, and his belief that immigration from Latin America is an existential threat to the U.S., place him firmly in the white nationalist camp. Buchanan is effusive in his support for Trump, “Enter the Donald. If there is a single theme behind his message, it would seem to be a call for a New Nationalism or New Patriotism. He is going to ‘make America great again.’ He is going to build a wall on the border that will make us proud, and Mexico will pay for it. He will send all illegal aliens home and restore the traditional value of U.S. citizenship by putting an end to the scandal of “anchor babies.”” Is Trumpism the Rebirth of Nationalism? (American Conservative, 8/25/15)

Buchanan also praises Trump’s willingness to get tough with global trade “antagonists” like China, Germany or Japan saying, “They took our jobs and factories; now we are going to take them back.”

Writing in the American Free Press, a prestigious political journal, Buchanan notes the insurgent candidacy of communist Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party, as well as Trump’s disruption of politics as usual in the GOP: “If there is one lesson to be taken from this run-up year to the presidential campaign of 2016, it is that a huge and growing segment of the nation does not want what the establishment of either party has to offer. And as insurgent parties spring up all over Europe, and the two-party system disintegrates there, the Europeanization of American politics may be at hand.” Rise of the Donald Signals Sea Change in U.S. Politics (AFP, 8/25/15)

Regardless of the conservative and media bandwagon against Trump, no informed citizen will fail to dispute the felonious notion that Trump is a “fascist.” To understand the political potential of the Trump campaign, it’s instructive to see how his right populism has shifted the discourse inside the GOP. While he is not a fascist, he is changing the face of U.S. politics even as the illegal totalitarian US government is promising dire retribution if Trump is not eliminated. Suggesting that Trump’s assassination by a well known “conservative republican” would “be great,”  is bandied about frequently inside the communist political beltway in DC. Will that assassination become part of the new conservative bandwagon, now fanatically supporting negro ben carson, to be the next black president?

Imperial President a "Dictator"

4063804682?profile=original

One week ago today, I received a handwritten letter from my primary care physician stating that due to the Obamacare law she could no long administer to many of her patients including myself.  She apologized in the letter saying she was desperately hoping she could find a legal way to retain her patients. In all likelihood she and her husband (who is a physician also) will soon be closing their doors. 

She’s in the prime of her life and her passion is caring for her patients – she has always been on call 24/7 and never ever turned Medicare patients away.  After reading her letter, I wondered how many primary care physicians, surgeons or specialist will end up closing their doors if Obamacare isn’t repealed?

Then as I was listening to Bill de Blasio NY city’s new mayor rambling on about “income equality” and listening  to  Anna Galland executive director of MoveOn.org Civil Action on C-Span's Washington Journal program discussing “income equality”  http://front.moveon.org/anna_on_c-span/#.UsxHWfRDvjU   

I realized that the Obama Administration, Democrats and Liberals had their political platform in tact ready to roll out in 2014. Just keep these words in mind – weaken the troops by distracting and dividing. 

All of this merely confirms that Obama is following the Cloward - Piven plan to a “T.”  In the next three years the population of “have nots” is about to explode giving Obama the power to take over our Country via big Government.   In three years, if Obama is allowed to continue his destructive “redistribution” scheme now referred to as “income equality” the “have nots” will far out - number the “haves.”

The biggest red flags are Obamacare, minimum wage changes, immigration changes, IRS controlling our healthcare, weakening our Military and Common Core.  All of the above will trickle down creating a dependency on our Government, which by no means is safe for our Nation or Americans.   

Our Nation is going to “pot” in a hand basket – we the people have lost our voice, our Government, and our freedom and rights are being attacked daily.  Needless to say I’m not a happy camper and would love to stand toe to toe with Obama at the White House and have a serious discussion about the way he is intentionally and with malice destroying the greatest Nation in the World.,

First I would refresh his memory and go back to the day January 20th 2009 when he and Biden took their oath before taking office.  I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Obviously he’s not qualified to serve as President of the United States of America because he hasn’t preserve, protected or defended the Constitution of the United States. It doesn’t take the Supreme Court Justices to confirm that I am correct – his actions are the proof of the pudding.

It’s not the President’s legal right to write or change laws it is his job to enforce laws as written –but we have a President who writes laws, changes laws, bi passes laws and our Constitution as he pleases.  We are governed by an Imperial President acting like a dictator. 

Americans must take a stand, if we have to shut the doors up on the White House and remove the baggage, then so be it.  The Liberals, Socialist and Communists have patiently planned for years for the day that the greatest Nation in the World is brought to her knees and turned into a Social Welfare State controlled entirely by big Government. 

It’s now just a matter of time until we the people are owned lock, stock and barrel by the Government.  If you think I’ve just presented a conspiracy theory just watch what happens as Obama, the Democrats and Liberals roll out “income equality” (Redistribution) scam in 2014.

Every day our Nation is getting poorer, weaker due to our foreign policies, extreme cuts in our nuclear powers, our Military along with the Common Core and the Entitlement society.  Time isn’t on our side and it’s foolish to think that if we’re fortunate enough to place Republicans in control of the House and Senate we can recover – a large majority of the Old Republican Establishment still are in control and they’re not about to give up their comfy positions in order to save our Country. 

The Old Republican Establishment will do in 2016 just what they did in 2012.  They will pick a weak candidate or let’s say one that they can control to run in the next Presidential Election.  We the people will merely experience a re-run of 2008, 2012 again in 2016. 

Why do you think that Boehner keeps waving his white flag and knuckling under the Obama Administration?  He’s owned and controlled by corrupt politicians on both sides and not man enough to fight for our Nation, Constitution and American’s freedom and rights.  He’s not just a “wimp” he’s the Republican Poster Child.

In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America. 

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

In my opinion, it is time for loyal and THE dedicated to freedom Americans, to re-date and update this proclamation with 50 states included.  It is time to stand up to our 535 elected representative in Congress, who do not in fact represent us at all, and demand action now to rid our country of the traitor to the Constitution of the Republic of the United States that now resides in the White House.  The People's White House - a fact he has not recognized to date. 

I have personally sent the following resolution to the Congressional Delegations in Montana and Florida.  I strongly suggest that you do the same sending the resolution to your representatives.  It is "all in" and prepared by a constitutional lawyer, a real one,  not the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, who is NOT even a lawyer.

The Resolution:

Resolution Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I

In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the executive branch to increase its power and destroy the balance of powers between the three branches of government that is established by the Constitution of the United States.

The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts:

(1)  Shortly after being sworn in for his first term as President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama began creating new departments and appointing Czars to oversee these departments. These Czars were never submitted to the United States Senate for approval as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution. In addition, these Czars and the Departments have budgets that are not subject to being controlled by Congress as provided for by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. He also made recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess.

(2)  Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that the President of the United States “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his oath of office has repeatedly ignored this Constitutional mandate by refusing to enforce laws against illegal immigration, defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and refusing to enforce Federal voting laws.

(3)  Article 1 of the Constitution establishes the legislative branch of the U.S. government and sets forth the powers of the Senate and House of Representatives to make laws. These powers are exclusive and the Constitution does not grant the President the power to either make laws or amend them on his own. Barack Hussein Obama has ignored these provisions and made or changed laws by either issuing unconstitutional executive orders or instructing governmental departments to take illegal and unconstitutional actions. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

A.   Ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to implement portions of the Cap & Trade bill that failed to pass in the U.S. Senate.

B.   Ordering implementation of portions of the “Dream Act” that failed to pass in Congress.

C.   Orchestrating a government takeover of a major part of the automobile industry in 2009.

D.   Ordering a moratorium on new offshore oil and gas exploration and production without approval of Congress.

E.   Signing an Executive Order on March 16, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch extraordinary powers to control and allocate resources such as food, water, energy and health care resources etc. in the interest of vaguely defined national defense issues. It would amount to a complete government takeover of the U.S. economy.

F.    Signing an Executive Order on July 6, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch the power to control all methods of communications in the United States based on a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.

G.  Signing an Executive Order on January 6, 2013 that contained 23 actions designed to limit the individual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

H.  Amending portions of the Affordable Healthcare Act and other laws passed by Congress without Congressional approval as required by Article 1 of the Constitution.

Article II

(1) Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that from time to time the President “shall give to Congress information on the State of the Union….” Implicit in this is an obligation for the President to be truthful with the Congress and the American people. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office and the requirements of the Constitution by willfully withholding information on important issues or actively taken part in misleading the Congress and the American people. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

A.   Using Executive privilege to block Congress from getting documents relating to the DOJ’s Operation Fast and Furious and the death of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry.

B.   Had members of his administration provide false information about the act of terrorism committed in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and refusing to allow the State Department and other federal agencies to cooperate in the Congressional investigation.

C.   Falsely labeled the mass murder of American soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas as “workplace violence” instead of the act of Islamic terrorism it was.

D.   Falsely labeling the IRS targeting of conservative and Christian groups as a “phony” scandal and refusing to order an active pursuit of the investigation into who was ultimately responsible.

E.   Refusing to order an independent investigation of the actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ in targeting the phone records of members of the news media.

F.    Telling the American people on a television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of Americans when the facts prove otherwise

(2) The oath of office of the President of the United States requires him to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. This obviously includes what may be the most important part of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office by seeking to limit both the individual rights and the rights of the States guaranteed in the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

A.    Having the Department of Health and Human Services order religious institutions and businesses owned by religious families to provide their employees free contraception and other services that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This is being done under the auspices of the Affordable Health Care Act and violates the religious freedom clauses of the First Amendment.  

B.    Having the military place restrictions on the religious freedom of Chaplains and other members of the military in order to favor gay rights advocates and atheists in violation of the First Amendment.

C.    Having the military place restrictions on the freedom of speech of members of the military and the civilian employees of the DOD in violation of their rights under the First Amendment.

D.    Using Executive orders and government agency actions to limit Second Amendment rights. This includes actions by the Veterans Administration to disarm American veterans without due process as required by the Fifth Amendment.

E.    Having the National Security Agency intercept and monitor the private communications of millions of Americans without a court order and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

F.     Joining with foreign governments in lawsuits against sovereign U.S. states to prohibit them from enforcing immigration laws. This is in violation of the Tenth Amendment.

G.   Filing suits under the Voting Rights Act against sovereign U.S. states to prevent them from enforcing Voter ID laws despite rulings by the Supreme Court upholding these laws. This is another violation of the Tenth Amendment and the balance of powers.

(3) Under Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of the United States military and as such is responsible for using them in a manner that best serves the national security of the United States and protects our soldiers from unnecessary risks and harm. Barack Hussein Obama has violated his oath of office in this regard. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

A.   In the name of  “political correctness,” he imposed unnecessary and dangerous rules of engagement on our troops in combat causing them to lose offensive and defensive capabilities and putting them in danger. Many American service personnel have been killed or wounded as a result of this policy.

B.   Releasing the identity of American military personnel and units engaged in dangerous and secret operations such as the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy Seal team 6.

C.   Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war. Yet, without consulting Congress President Obama ordered the American military into action in Libya.

In all of this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.


This resolution was prepared by Michael Connelly, Constitutional Attorney, a U.S. Army veteran, Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation, and a published author, freelance writer, and teacher. 

IT IS SELF-EVIDENT THAT THE 535 INCOMPETENT SLUDGE IN CONGRESS WILL NOT DO WHAT'S RIGHT AND IMPEACH BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IF WE THE PEOPLE DO NO STEP UP AND DEMAND THAT THEY DO UNDER THE PENALTY OF REMOVAL OF EACH OF THEM SUMMARILY!

Progressivism, at least its roots have been around since the days of the Romans.

Fabius Maximus. A Roman politician and General

and since perfected by others, leading to Barack Obama.

I’ll NOT dwell on the different parts. YOU should google for your self.

But I will make the start of your search real easy… a blog by M Fell

Progressivism- History

He provides

  • Gradual Inevitability – Gen Fabius Maximus…eat the elephant one bite at a time
  • Cultural Marxism – Racism
  • Critical Theory – Destructive Criticism …. Cloward-Piven
  • Political Correctness – Coat your turd with Sugar

Below is the result of an email I received, and my comments.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy
By Richard Poe
DiscoverTheNetworks.org
2005


First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

[[MGI...]]] AKA . . . . Overwhelm the System…. IS F Piven an Obama adviser?

I have wondered if “WE” can use the same strategy to overwhelm nobamasacommie…….. but it takes 40+ years to work

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue an African American man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called "crisis strategy" or "Cloward-Piven Strategy," as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes

[[MGI...]]]  Today that would be Obama + Czars + Demonrats

used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion.

[[MGI...]]] Wasn’t it FDR ( Social Security) and LBJ (The Great Society/War on Poverty)…. Demonrats both that forced welfare?

 Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them,"

[[MGI...]]] A PERFECT example of a false premise… a  planted falsity………the KEY operative being “only”… to the exclusion of ALL other possibilities, such as

  • A rising tide floats ALL boats …meaning a STRONG economy presents OPPORTUNITY to ALL
  • Good old fashioned “Application”… YOU research “Black Heroes”
  • IT SIMPLY IS NOT… N O T ….TRUE

[[MGI...]]] My position is that the Demonrats use welfare to weaken the poor, to hook them like drug dealers…. Their statement about the ruling class is only true WHEN the demonrats are in charge.

Obama – Programmed Political Robot

4063539341?profile=original

The Obama person just jumped out of the closet and like Weiner exposed himself to the World.  No wonder he is the laughing stock of the foreign Countries – Putin, the Muslim Brotherhood, terrorists and foreign leaders didn’t need to vet him they had the inside scoop on him before he was inaugurated in 2009.

The terrorists thought he would protect their cause by disposing of Gitmo and the Muslim Brotherhood felt very secure in ravaging and taking over other Countries because Obama was their point man and he would open the door for them.  Putin and Angela Merkel regard Obama somewhat like we do when swatting at a fly – just a pest to be knocked out of the way. 

China realized that the minute Obama was inaugurated their quest to become the super power of the World was well within their reach. They didn’t have to wait long to buy the USA for a pittance, because Obama’s first move was to weaken us financially with the stimulus bill in order to initiate his redistribution process.  We’re not just beholdin’ to China they own and control our every move. 

So how did a total stranger take over the highest most prestigious office in our Country without being vetted?  It started in the early 1990’s when Soros, Penny Pritzker, Abner Mikva, and a slew of other Rothchilds Zionists and Communists hand - picked Barack Obama to do their dirty work.  Why was Obama picked – was it due to intelligence, political savvy or his prowess as a leader?  Absolutely not!

Obama was nothing but a “thing” a creation of Frank Marshall Davis, Mikva, Professor Charles Ogletree, Soros, Axelrod, Anita Dunn, Derrick Bell, Bill Ayers, Rezko, Dorhn and so many more were involved in the creation of this “Political Puppet.”  The puppet is only the messenger (a thing) but the teleprompter is the message to fear hand crafted by the radicals.

It’s a tangled web for sure and few people will ever know the exact truth about Obama’s past, because from the time they started creating the puppet, they spent millions to cover up their corrupt bunny tracks.

The fight America is facing is not Obama, but the teleprompter that conveys the Communist, Marxist and Rothschild message.  Obama can’t stand alone without the teleprompter; he’s incapable of communicating intelligently without his prompter.  The face we see daily during his campaign is the face of a robot gone bad, nothing more and nothing less. Frequently the robot malfunctions such as his latest comment about businesses and the reason for their success. 4063539395?profile=original

One must consider his ineptness during his 2008 campaign speeches when he mentioned visiting 57 States in our Union, his inability to remember dates, names and times when signing the guest book in England dating it the May 24th, 2008.  When talking to the troops he said, “A comrade of yours Jared Monti was the first person I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously. “ Oops, Sgt. Jared Monti was killed in action!  By the way what is a “Corpse man, a corpse man or a corpse man? 

In 2008, he showed his total ignorance about the placement of our states – he didn’t even know that his home state of Illinois shares a border with Kentucky, not Arkansas.  When he mentioned the Austrian language in his comment about “wheeling and dealing” he didn’t have a clue that there isn’t any Austrian language.

No wonder people question his faith – in an interview with George Stephanopolis he said, “You’re absolutely right John McCain hasn’t talked about my Muslim faith.  To top it all off when he was trying to sell Obamacare he said, “The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our healthcare system.”

He’s nothing but a “thing” programmed by the Communists, Marxists, Rothschild Zionists and Alinsky worshippers. What we do need to fear are the puppeteers who are working behind the scene to destroy our beautiful America.

Take his teleprompter away for one week and he’d be packing his bags and high tailing it out of town. 

May God Bless America

Obama - Difference Between Tough & a Coward

4063503794?profile=original

Obama brags to Brian Williams about the Osama Bin Laden operation and to hear him tell it you’d think he was actually the one that pulled the plug on bin Laden.  Brian in an attempt to wrap up the Osama Bin Laden sage interviewed everyone except the key players. Brian is trying to set the stage to prove that Obama has the guts and intelligence to make the tough calls. Sorry Brian, Americans know who killed Osama bin Laden and it certainly wasn’t Barack Obama. 

The rumor mill has been flying since the murder of Osama bin Laden – team Obama didn’t have time to prepare an accurate story about the operation, because Obama was the reluctant one dragging his heels and trying to post pone the operation.  If truth were known, he probably didn’t know how the operation played out until it was over, done with and the Navy Seals were back home snuggled up in their beds.

Hillary Clinton could have been the one to fill Brian Williams in on all of the details about the bin Laden operation because she was privy to information that no one bothered to share with Obama due to his inability to make the tough decisions.  Hillary doesn’t have the option here to expose Obama and Valarie Jarrett so she must endure the discomfort of protecting two of the most violent corrupt people in our USA. 

Unless Hillary want to risk problems like Breitbart and Michael Cormier one of the coroners doing an autopsy on Breitbart she’d  best keep her mouth shut and decline to fight for her Nation.  Obama and his Administration play hard ball and a few murders here or there doesn't phase them a bit – look at Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and hundreds of innocent Mexican men, women and children killed from the operation “Fast and Furious.” 4063503904?profile=original

Remember his friends in Reverend Wright’s Church that were murdered execution style after he declared his run for President of the USA in 2007. 

Admiral McRaven and Leon Panetta could fill in all of the missing pieces.  Valarie Jarrett and Obama repeatedly tried to stall the operation by the CIA, Petraeus and the Navy Seals – Obama as usual was straddling the fence unable to make a definitive decision. 

Obama has made decisions and they weren’t tough they were devious intentional acts against our Country; they were cowardly acts of treason used to bring our Nation to its knees.  What kind of bravery does it take to “redistribute” our 787 billion dollars to scandalous operations the Solyndra and Sun Power , the Unions, special interest groups, ACORN, Soros etc? 4063503848?profile=original

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 can be referred to as the Obama / Soros stimulus package, because if you check closely Soros had both fists in our stimulus money.  Soros put his big dogs to work and they gobbled up billions of our money for his many open Society Foundations including green companies, green energy companies, job development companies and the horrid list just keeps going and going.  It doesn’t take much guts to steal from those who have entrusted you with their hard earned tax dollars – it does take an individual with a sociopathic mindset to steal from others all in the name of “redistribution.”

It does takes a group of sick - minded people with a false ideology to sift funds from taxpayers into Union and special interest coffers.  These people declared war on businesses and economic growth in 2009 and they succeeded without a glitch in stopping job growth. They managed to keep 313,005,179 people under the control of Communists, Marxists, Rothschild Zionist for 3 ½ years. 

In 2012, Obama will continue this reign of terror via class warfare with the assistance of the Liberal News Media dividing and distracting our United States citizens.  He’ll continue slipping money under the table to his big bundlers, special interest groups, Unions and “Big Daddy Soros” unless we break out of our confinement and fight him toe to toe.

It’s time to stop the OBAMA TRAIN WRECK before we become totally dependent on big Government.  We don’t have a great bunch of Republicans and Democrats watching our backsides – so we’re at a place and time that we’re either going to “sink or swim.” 

It’s time for Americans to join forces and “Take Back Our Country.”

Obama and the 2012 Presidential Race

4063425539?profile=original

by little tboca

Here’s a taste of what Americans can expect in the Presidential Race of 2012. Obama has already kicked his class warfare into all of his campaign speeches and will continue this strategy for the next 11 months. He’s pretending that he’s looking out for the “middle class” – what a laugh.

He’s the one who knocked the middle class off their feet in three years; he stopped any and all job growth, he redistributed 787 billion dollars known as the stimulus bill, which should have been called Obama’s “Dissuasion” bill. He backs the Muslim Brotherhood, trashes Israel, supports the Wall Street Protestors and continues hanging out with “America’s Most Wanted,” Marxists, Communists and Socialists.

Our final decision in 2012 will determine the future of our children, grandchildren and future generations. We must be resilient, determined and give them a legacy that they can wrap their arms around with pride.

So the question for 2012 is do we want to vote for the person who can “take our Country back” or will we succumb to the Liberal News Media’s lies and propaganda and give Obama his second term?

There is one man who can restore our Nations weak foundation, give us back our Freedoms, Rights and our voice. We can beat him to death for his mistakes, or we can acknowledge that he is the one person who has learned from his mistakes, asked God’s forgiveness for his indiscretions and give him 100% support.

Newt’s positive positions on economy, taxes, free trade, spending and regulations far outweigh his mistakes. We have the option of going to his website and asking specific questions, if we have any doubts on how he stands on certain issues.

http://www.newt.org/news/letter-supporters-gingrich-urges-them-stay-positive or http://www.newt.org/meet-newt

There wouldn’t be a Republican majority in the house today without the Republican Revolution led by Newt Gingrich in 1994. Newt is the reason and the only reason that the GOP took over the house for the first time in forty years.

Newt Gingrich made mistakes, but the difference between him and so many of the Old Establishment Politicians is this; Newt actually revisited his errors while serving in the House of Representatives analyzing and correcting his mistakes in order to become the committed leader that he is today.

Two Quotes that come to mind about making mistakes:

There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.” Winston Churchill

Everyone has the right to decide who the next 2012 Presidential Candidate will be and pick the man or woman of his choice. We must be strong and arm ourselves against the lies, propaganda and political rhetoric and that can only be done by doing our homework.
If we want to sit on our butts and let Obama and the Liberal News Media spoon feed us lies about Obama’s ideology, we’ll face defeat due to our own complacency, negligence and ignorance.

May God Bless America

Making no secret of his disdain for Tea Party ideals and ideas, ex-White House adviser Van Jones on Monday nonetheless urged liberal activists to "steal" the Tea Party's playbook.

The former "green jobs" adviser, speaking at the top of a three-day conference in the nation's capital designed to galvanize liberal activists, spoke interchangeably in harsh and glowing terms about the Tea Party movement. He described their cause as "the worst" and "silly" and other unflattering adjectives. At the same time, he said progressives can learn from what the Tea Party has accomplished, as he tried to steer the crowd toward his own umbrella group which he's been working on since the summer. 

Using the pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps tone President Obama has employed in recent days, Jones pointed to the Tea Party movement as an example of grassroots activism done right. He suggested liberals have relied too much on one person, Obama, to fix everything. 

Only instead of taking to the streets in the name of lower taxes and less regulation, he urged the crowd to model its own Tea Party-style movement in the name of the middle class. 

"If we can just be as warm and sharing and kind as the Tea Party, which one might suspect is a relatively low bar, we might be able to do something for our country," Jones said Monday. 

Obama has stirred controversy in recent days by urging the base to quit complaining, take off their "bedroom slippers" and march with him. Jones used similar language, as the three-day Take Back the American Dream Conference got underway. 

"We went from hopey to mopey and forgot to build a movement in the middle," Jones said. 

He credited the Tea Party with building a "network" that operates without any individual leader. "There is no Tea Party. You can't land at the airport here in D.C., and get in the cab and say 'take me to Tea Party headquarters'," he said. 

Jones described the movement as an "upgrade" over what progressives had done. 

"They use their charismatic leaders to build something bigger than any leader," he said. "They talk rugged individualism, but they act collectively." 

By contrast, he said, "we talk collectively ... but we have enacted the most individualistic strategy in the republic." 

Jones, at several points in the speech, referred to the emergence of a new "movement." 

He claimed the so-called American Dream Movement, which he launched over the summer, has attracted more interest from supporters than the Tea Party did in 2009. He and other progressive groups are trying to rally that sentiment into something more cohesive at the spirit-building conference in Washington. 

But it also coincided with the more raucous anti-corporate protests on Wall Street and in cities across the country. The speakers with the Take Back the American Dream Conference tried to show some solidarity with those protesters -- Jones applauded them for going to the "scene of the crime." 

The message of those protesters, though, is not quite as cohesive as the message in Washington. Some of the protesters in New York, while organizing under the banner of combating corporate greed, talk about demolishing the capitalist system altogether. 

Tea Party Express strategist Sal Russo described the various demonstrations as unfounded. 

"The direction of the county has been decidedly to the left," he said. "The policies have been so far left they don't have anything to be unhappy about." 

But with unemployment topping 9 percent, Jones urged activists to focus on unemployment and standing up for those unable to find work. While protesters are calling for the abolition of capitalism on Wall Street, Jones urged activists to organize under a message that is both "positive" and "portable." 

"You can't just have a principle that'll work in Berkeley," he said, adding that it has to resonate in "red states." 

The conference is being co-sponsored by the Campaign for America's Future. The opening day of the conference featured several prominent speakers, including former Labor Secretary Robert Reich and Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Md. Jones' group plans to take the event a step further Wednesday, organizing a "rally for jobs not cuts" outside the U.S. Capitol. 

Jones is the former "green jobs" adviser for Obama. He resigned following controversy over some of his public comments and his signing on a years-old petition from a group that suggests the U.S. government was complicit in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Jones disavowed the so-called Sept. 11 "truth" group when the petition came out. 

Jones referenced the incident on stage Monday in Washington. 

"You can get knocked down, that happens in politics. Ask me how I know," Jones said, as the crowd chuckled.

“Besides Rasmussen, the often interesting Quinnipiac University polling a few months back showed that only 19% of the voting populace generally trust government to do the right thing “almost all of the time” or “most of the time; but among TEA Party members that number drops to only 4%.
 
 
 
Rasmussen Poll Underlines
Conservative Voter Skepticism, Distrust
 
 
 
        If  the 2010 midterm elections were your way of revolting against the last fifty years of federal government actions, a revolution at the ballotbox by the center and the right, you're not without company.  The term bandied around most by the progressives and other left-wingers over the last 110 years of American history is their Marxist interpretation of the word “revolution.”  These revolting people with the aim of bringing totalitarianism to our shores have ceaselessly talked about “the revolution” and derided the system created by America’s Founding Fathers, the system that has made America a shining beacon of hope around the planet for over 225 years. 
 
However, throughout real American history it’s been the radical-center and right** that has led the way, who’ve brought great change to these shores . . . and right now, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports it is that same radical-center group that is most likely to “kick the bast_rds out” of the Oval Office and Congress until they get a government that truly represents their interests and highest standards. According to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll of likely Republican voters, if you talk to 64% of them, they now see the divide between the public and their government as the biggest since the American Revolution began in 1775.
In the Rasmussen survey of likely G.O.P. primary voters, 64% of them agree with that sentiment; only 16% disagree and 20% say they aren’t sure. In related questioning, 84% of Republican voters trust the judgment of the American people more than that of the nation’s political leaders and only 4% trust the political leaders more with 12% “undecided.” When Democrats and Independents are added in 76% of the people today trust the people more than the politicians. 
The likely Republican voters deeply distrust their government: 87% say the federal government has become a special interest group with the desire and power to advance its own interests to the public’s detriment. Only 6% of Republicans disagree with that view. 67% of G.O.P. voters think big business and the government often work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors; with only 13% disagreeing and 20% unsure.
Rasmussen Reports founder Scott Rasmussen (who’s run the most accurate and trustworthy polling service in the country for the last dozen years; authored the book In Search of Self-Governance; and co-authored Mad as Hell: How the TEA Party is Fundamentally Remaking our Two-Party System with ex-Clinton aide Doug Schoen) said this in In Search of Self Governance, “Throughout American History, voters tend to be a few decades ahead of the political leadership. Voters gradually adapt to changes in the real world while politicians defend the status quo.” If he’s right, it explains why “Revolution” as it’s seen by the left hasn’t caught on. They dynamic in America is, according to Rasmussen, significantly different than it is in European, Asian or Latin American countries where Marxism has played out its hand.
Rasmussen revealed that 43% of the G.O.P. consider themselves part of the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party movement and 22% of all voters align themselves with the TEA Party.   The TEA Party reports that its makeup includes 9% Democrats; 18% Independents and 72% Republicans and Libertarians who are, of course, most likely to vote in the upcoming Republican primaries. The stereotype that the group belongs to “angry old men” is incorrect: 56% of TEA Party members are women and the average age of all regardless of gender is 46. 
Polls by other groups have highlighted some of the problems that the recent Rasmussen’s poll shows Republicans excited about. For example, the often interesting Quinnipiac University polling a few months back showed that only 19% of the voting populace generally trust government to do the right thing “almost all of the time” or “most of the time; but among TEA Party members that number drops to only 4% compared to 24% among non-TEA Party citizens. All this ties in to another Rasmussen poll showing that only 23% of the likely voting public now says the government has the consent of the governed in America.
The main difference, of course between the progressive-radicals and the mainstream radicals is, of course, the question of bullets or ballots.   Many on the left such as Frances Fox Piven have long advocated “bloody revolution.” The quiet revolution via the ballot box is the preferred method of the angry Republicans and TEA Party folk. Surveys of all Americans over the last four decades has shown that the breakdown of self-identification has remained very steady at or around: 44% calling themselves “conservative”; 42% self-labeling as “moderate”; and just 12% “liberal.” The area crippling conservatism’s power in Rajjpuut’s opinion is “social-conservativism” which includes items like strict anti-abortion stands; and desire for creationism and other religious beliefs to be taught in public schools; singing religious Chritmas carols in public schools, etc.. For example: 55% of all Americans are against the strictest anti-abortion views (absolutely no abortion under any circumstances) while only 43% support them. However, combined Constitutional conservativism and fiscal-conservativism as advocated by the TEA Party seems to be an area that at least 55%  of the Independent voters can enthusiastically support.
 
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
Rajjpuut
 
** The most obvious examples are the Founding Fathers' efforts before the Revolutionary War fighting against the Stamp Act and the tax on tea; creating the Declaration of Independence; and later in creating the Constitution and Bill of Rights; and even more to the point, the abandonment of the Whig Party and the creation and rise of the Republican Party from 1856-1860 after the Whigs repeatedly refused to take a stand against slavery.  Many consider the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 to be another example.

26. Propaganda was invented by the Nazis.

27. Eugenics was an atrocious Nazi invention.

The Answers:

Every wonder why so many people support anti-American laws and candidates election after election? It’s because the Progressives passing the laws have told the Big lie so often and so effectively that the progressives’ Big Lie is now considered today’s truth. The statements above were some well-known examples of BIG LIES told so often (almost a hundred years in some cases) that now virtually all of the uninformed believe them. Every single one of the 28 statements above is 100% false, here’s the truth about the questions above . . . remember . . . .

Every single one of the 28 statements above is 100% false and yet these statements are widely believed by great numbers of the voting populace. Since conservatives haven’t done what it takes to keep the truth before people all the time, the progressives with out any good ideas at all are winning the battle of ideas, a shameless situation.

The “rednecks” were rifle-toting UNION miners who wore bandanas around their necks to minimize the chance they’d shoot each other in confrontations against management during their labor altercations. The liberals and progressives and labor unions “doctored” the term “rednecks” so now they’re implying that "rednecks" are, and always have been, ultra-extreme violent conservatives and implying that progressivism is by default much more reasonable.

The term “Nazi” is short for “National Socialist Workers Party,” one of about thirty such parties that sprang up in Germany after that country lost World War I. Only two lasted for over a decade: the communists and Nazis. Both were left-wing organizations intent upon socializing German life. Besides the two words “socialist” and “workers” which both communism and Nazism revere, both in practice turn into ruthless totalitarian states. No conservativism involved. The Nazi literature claimed their economic system was “neither capitalism nor communism,” but something far better than either. Business didn’t support Hitler until he’d already come to power.

Fascism was created in Italy when the labor unions became so strong they overthrew the management of the corporations, large and small. Then the corporations took over the government and elected Benito Mussolini as leader. No conservativism there.

Nazism and Fascism are almost identical to communism in their ideals (benefits for the workers, curses for the capitalists that create jobs) and in their typical ends: totalitarianism.

They (Republicans and conservatives) put the car (our economy) into the ditch (deep recession) is President Barack^^ Obama's biggest Big Lie. In a nutshell, here's the truth: George Bush saw Obama, Clinton, ACORN, and other progressive groups deliberately pushing the car (the economy) toward a 500-foot cliff (utter financial disaster) dived into the front seat, grabbed the steering wheel and slammed on the brakes creating a controlled skid that put the vehicle into the nearest friendly-looking ditch. But realizing that particular truth is such a long story and so hard for most of you to believe, here's more info you can examine at your leisure: teapartypatriots.org/BlogPostView.aspx?id=55f820a3-5f02-4c92-adaa-59b59f318be7

Woodrow Wilson, was probably, next to Barack Obama, the progressive president who threatened freedom most. He was a racist who showed the D.W. Griffith film “Birth of a Nation” repeatedly in the White House; ended federal hiring of blacks in Washington, D.C.; put Italian and German citizens into concentration camps during World War I; closed down newspapers that he disagreed with; and sought to manipulate the mind of voters to a degree not seen before in history thus inventing “propaganda.”

Warren G. Harding, who died in office, was one of the most effective and honest presidents ever. He inherited Woodrow Wilson’s “depression” as he came to office in 1921. It’s mostly been lost to history or been known as the “Invisible Depression” because within fifteen months Harding had brought it under control and returned the country to prosperity by cutting taxes 49%; cutting government spending 48%; and paying down the national debt roughly 31%. After his death a scandal associated with one of his cabinet members was dropped into his lap by progressive historians revising the truth; but Harding had no part in the Teapot Dome scandal. Calvin Coolidge, Harding’s vice president, replaced him at Harding’s death and continued the policies of Harding giving the country the most prosperous decade in its history: “The Roaring Twenties.” Herbert Hoover was placed onto Harding’s cabinet as Secretary of Commerce to appease some of Harding’s supporters. Hoover was a “tinkerer” and a progressive. When the Harding administration assumed power, Hoover advised Harding to make several major changes to combat the Wilson depression. But Harding ignored him. When Hoover became president in 1929 he immediately started “fixing” what wasn’t broken and put us into a huge fiscal debacle.

Herbert Hoover’s raising of taxes and dramatic increasing of tariffs ushered in hard times, job losses, Wall Street panic and a recession. He then created more government agencies than ever before seen to try to combat the problem but only made it worse. FDR and his vice president Garner campaigned against Hoover calling him a “socialist” and vowing to cut taxes and cut government spending (like Harding) but when FDR came into office he not only did not cut taxes or spending; and continued most of Hoover’s programs just giving them a different name; but expanded government to levels never before seen.

FDR tried to use government to create jobs and instead turned a little ‘d’ depression into the Great Depression. The Great Depression lasted until the country entered World War II. Whereas Harding eliminated a depression in 15 months, Hoover and Roosevelt extended theirs to 12.5 years.

Nancy Pelosi told us that every dollar spent on food stamps and unemployment checks is worth $1.79 in benefits to the economy and nothing revs up job creation like those two programs. Governments cannot create jobs** or create wealth. Government can only redistribute it. Pelosi can certainly not prove her statement. Yes, it’s very likely that food stamp and welfare money will be spent almost immediately and that’s likely to give apparent benefit. What Pelosi is not pointing out is that the money in the hands of the taxpayers is not diluted by passing through the hands of the IRS and scads of other bureaucrats and paying for all the employees, electricity and buildings and paper involved, etc. but that it goes directly into the economy even faster since it does not need to make a detour to Washington and then another detour to the state jobs offices or state welfare offices.

Communism, or ultra-socialism, is a philosophy particularly appropriate for dictators and totalitarian governments. But freedom is definitely not the only casualty under communism. The people suffer through deprivations and the government tends to kill them by starvation; brutal imprisonment; or more directly. In the 20th Century totalitarian communist regimes in Red China, the Soviet Union, Cambodia, etc. etc. killed roughly 122 million of their own people. A new word had to be created to describe this phenomenon: "democide" (regimes killing their own people). Mao killed roughly 60 million in peace time, many by willful starvation by insisting that state programs be continued when obviously they were not working and people were starving to death. The Soviet Union spread its killings out across war and peace. Deliberate starvation of the Ukrainians killed seven million in peace time.

Mao killed 60 million Chinese.

Che was a sadist who reportedly said he lost count somewhere after the 187th prisoner he’d personally killed with his bare hands after he and Fidel Castro came to power.

The term “Global warming” as the environmental extremists use it is a lie. It’s relatively impossible to look at any five hundred year period in recent earth history without finding plenty of evidence of shifting climate. The global warming statisticians conveniently left out the 300 year “Medieval Optimum” (a very warm period in which Greenland and Iceland were relatively ice-free and the Vikings settled there and even discovered North America) when calculating global climate shifts. So the present day is compared almost directly to the so-called “Little Ice Age” which ended around 1850. See the History Channel DVD “Little Ice Age, Big Chill” for more information on that period. Of course while Europe and the rest of the world have covered the falsification of the data by Climate alarmists, the story has never run here in the United States in the mainstream liberal media.

High Carbon Dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere actually make the earth cooler by reflecting heat back into space and by encouraging plant life. Back in 1972 our present “Science Czar” John Holdren wrote a book about how the coming ice age was caused by man’s interferences and pollutants. Time magazine showed a cover with a frozen earth to herald his predictions. Climate alarmism is about putting the federal government in control of more and more of our lives and has zero-basis in fact.

By their own admission, the leaders of the Cap and Trade argument tell us that unless they put us back to about 1903’s technology, the global warming they say exists cannot be reversed. If it were true, mankind creates about 2% of the world’s carbon emissions the rest is natural so man cannot be blamed for the problem anyway. Despite this, President Obama told a San Francisco newspaper that his energy policies will “bankrupt the coal industry" and “must necessarily drive the cost of electricity sky-high.”

A Spanish study (of the green-tech experiment that took that country from the #1 job producer in the European Union in 1997 to 21% unemployment today) concluded that each green tech job subsidized by the Spanish government cost 2.2 jobs. Translated to American shores that means that President Obama’s promise to create five million green jobs would cost 11 million real jobs in the real economy. Not only that, but the Spanish study showed that once subsidies were removed or the individual programs expired, most green jobs disappeared also. Only about 10% of green jobs proved permanent . . . so only 500,000 of Mr. Obama’s jobs can be expected to be permanent (and the Spanish study showed that the wages were relatively low as well) at a cost of 11 million real permanent jobs in the real economy a 22/1 ratio that created the disaster in Spain (each job cost $677,000 to create). By the way, it reportedly took Edison 10,000 experiments to invent a workable light bulb . . . have you seen any indication that any green tech other than windmills is even close to "shovel-ready" for the whole country's use?

The $787 Billion Obama stimulus made the economy much worse. Jobs “created or saved” is a bogus statistic. You just count the number of jobs in the economy and see if the number rises or falls – that’s the only valid statistic. Much like the Spanish study, governments really fudge when they talk about job creation. For example in one study 34 jobs were created at only about $36,000 each by the Obama stimulus. WOW! However, closer study shows that the people were working in a meat industry for precisely ONE WEEK and each of their jobs got counted as a full-time permanent job???? So how much of the $36,000 was just a political payoff? You’ll never know.

Rachel Carson wrote a book called “Silent Spring” in the early 60’s. No actual science was involved in the creation of the book. Ms. Carson’s claims about the ills of DDT were never actually researched and DDT was taken off the market and eventually banned worldwide by the United Nations. In 1972 malaria deaths around the earth were roughly 42,000. Today more than two million people die from malaria every year not to mention all those who live with the disease for their whole lives. Ms. Carson killed 60 million people by getting a pesticide that can be drunk safely or used for salad dressing banned. Today many African and Asian nations are beginning to ignore the DDT ban.

The progressives would have you believe that only they are tolerant and only they are concerned about the poor. Leaving aside the fact that anyone who doesn’t adopt the “politically-correct” stance progressives approve of is called a “racist,” “stupid,” and “extremist bigot,” what are the facts? Anti-capitalists Richard Cloward and Frances Piven (infamous for the “Cloward-Piven Strategy”) joined with militant George Wiley in 1967 to create the NWRO to use the poor as “storm troopers” to assail the Welfare offices of the nation and swell the welfare rolls. Eventually they bankrupted New York City (1975) and came within a whisker of bankrupting New York State (NYC had to be bailed out by the federal government). The long-term result? The welfare moms that the National Welfare Rights Organization spawned totally changed the culture and lifestyle of the urban poor into a world of abject dependency and hopelessness. Single-mother families are now the norm and higher crime, unwed motherhood, school dropoutism, utter lack of upward mobility; and, in one part of the inner-city culture(the Black community) marriage and family is disappearing from the landscape as fatherhood is no longer an honored institution. Everywhere the dominant culture is the culture of “victimization” and hopelessness. Even though Cloward, Piven and Wiley failed to create the guaranteed national income they hoped for, they bragged in public and in print about their great deed in bankrupting NYC. Apparently they really care for the poor.

ACORN like the NWRO uses poor people as storm troopers. In the case of ACORN putting poor people into homes they couldn’t afford was considered a good thing. In the resulting recession, the poor people were the ones who suffered the most.

Conservatives vote against welfare laws which encourage dependency and ultimately trap poor people in poverty forever. Conservatives believe that first completing one’s education and then starting out in low-paying service jobs if necessary is training for the future, not humiliation.

The federal government creates meaningful jobs as effectively as newborns do calculus. By taxing away the resources of the private sector, government kills jobs.

Inflation is the main economic tool of progressives in democracies. It allows them to promise anything and everything (with the bills never coming due) to bribe the electorate into giving them their votes and power. From 1913 when the Federal Reserve Banking System was created to today, the American paper dollar has lost 98% of its buying power. Not only that, but the nation has a $14 TRillion National debt and faces $109 TRillion in unfunded liabilities (Social Security; Medicare; and the federal side of Medicaid services which have been promised to our citizens). This is the cost of voting for progressives who make big promises.

Propaganda was invented by the Woodrow Wilson regime and both Goebbels and Hitler referred gratefully to what they’d learned from the great American founders of this new science.

Eugenics was the subject of many intelligent discussions by the Fabian Socialists of England. Elites like H.G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw thought it was a necessary part of the necessary and gradual shift toward socialism they espoused. American progressivism is one offspring of the Fabians. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and other American elite believed eugenics was vital. Later the Nazis liked the idea too and put them into action with their gas chambers.

Socialism, not capitalism, exploits the poor. Using legislative handouts to enslave the poor in exchange for their votes, Socialism cuts the standard of living for everyone. The poor in America have it so horribly bad that they’re better off than 94% of the world’s peoples. Instead of bringing everyone down to the level of the poor, capitalism says “a rising tide lifts all boats” so let’s bring greater prosperity to everyone so the poor are elevated well above their present standard of living.

** did you catch the apparent “contradiction” between item #9 and #10? We said the federal government cannot create wealth or jobs in #10 after talking about how World War II finally pulled the country out of the Great Depression. Is there a contradiction? Isn’t the federal government creating jobs (and by extension wealth) when it makes a bigger army or navy? Think about it . . . . If you can’t figure it out Rajjpuut recommends Henry Hazlitt’s “Economics in One Lesson” with particular attention to three short chapters called “The Broken Window,” The Blessings of Destruction” and “Disbanding Troops and Bureaucrats.”

^^ Barack Obama worked over two years as an ACORN lawyer in Chicago brow-beating and shaking-down mortgage lenders to force them to make thousands of knowingly bad loans to people who could never repay their mortgages without first winning the lottery.

^^ We called #4 the biggest of his Big Lies for Barack Obama because he worked more than two years for ACORN as a lawyer browbeating and shaking-down unwilling mortgage lenders to make them comply with CRA legislation and force them to make knowingly unsound loans to people who in many cases could only hope to pay off their mortgages by winning the lottery or holding up a bank.

“It’s amazing, is it not? Since all these progressives hold such a monopoly on sweetness and light, which the rest of us can never touch, that the Communist Party regimes butchered 122 million of their own countries’ people in the 20th Century. It’s even more amazing that the Communist Party USA agenda and the Obama agenda jive or dovetail at least 99% is it not? So let’s watch how worshipful the MSM will behave toward this rally, eh?” Rajjpuut



Communist Party, International Socialists and Democratic


Socialists Organizing National Mall** Rally


It’s just one more of those little absurdities that we’ve come to expect from 21st Century journalists. The mainstream media (MSM) which threw fifty dozen questions Glen Beck’s way prior to his “Restoring Honor” rally on 9/12/2010 . . . is avoiding asking any questions whatsoever for the organizers of this weekend’s “One Nation Working Together” rally on the National Mall. So let’s just skip the questions and Rajjpuut will give you the answers . . . .


If you go to the CPUSA.org website (that’s Communist Party USA) you will find a list of three hundred organizations asking their rank and file to attend the Saturday rally. Besides the Communist Party, the DSA or Democratic Socialists of America (a “Democratic Socialist is what Vladimir Putin became when he tore up his commie party card, took off his gun and uniform and quit the KGB altogether) and the International Socialist Organizations (ISO) and every fringe progressive (we need to ‘progress’ beyond the outdated and seriously flawed U.S. Constitution) group in America are environmental extremists and militant unions and at least 272 sub-prime Communist and Socialist organizations. The least bizarre of which might be NOW, the National Women’s Organization of screeching man-haters. And who is the driving force for all this agitation and militancy taking to the streets? Ooops that was a question. Barack Obama via his personally-developed website Organizing for America is the driving force for this really big show.

Four Lessons Larger than Life . . . .

Americans Must Stand for Something

Rather Than Falling for Anything

Though NOT believing in astrology, Ol’ Rajjpuut is a Libra, one of those well-balanced people who occasionally like to throw their weight around. Besides a strong preference for cheeseless six-ingredient pizzas and eating the entire apple except for its stem, he has a particular fetish for learning about things that happened on his birthday, October 16, throughout history. For example:

On October 16, 1859, John Brown made his famous raid of “patriotic treason” on Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia’s federal armory; in 1962, President Kennedy was shown the photos of missile silos in Communist Cuba taken a day earlier; in 1964, Red China got nuclear weapons joining England, France, the USSR and USA; in 1793, the beheading of Marie Antoinette by the guillotine; in 1946, the hanging of the original ten Nazi war criminals after the Nuremberg trials; in 1854, the birth of Oscar Wilde; in 1888, the birth of Eugene O’Neill; in 1919, the first popular speech in Munich by Adolf Hitler transforming him overnight into the de facto leader of the Nazi party in Germany; and also in 1919, the publishing of this poem:

The Gods of the Copybook Headings**

by Rudyard Kipling

As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place;
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four—
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man—
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began:—
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Let’s call that poem by Kipling, “Exhibit A” that the popularity of an idea or plan has no necessary relation to its wisdom or factual basis. Truly we human beings have a nasty tendency to “throw the baby out with washwater” and ignore history’s lessons until we repeat them as Kipling emphasized in his poem above. While it’s true that “a certain foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,” the operative words in that saying are “certain” and “foolish” not consistency . . . it is the practice of consistently doing the right things and thinking the right thoughts and operating our businesses and our lives with the right “spirit” that leads to true success. If a vital 7-10% of success and a good life is based upon NOT being trapped by the past; perhaps the other crucial 90-93% is knowing what the hell we’re talking about, because we truly understand our own and all history and are somewhat expert in the areas we’re involved in. The next great lesson for our times is this from Ben Franklin, we’ll call it “Exhibit B”:

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary security deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

A third great lesson is this from Nobel Prize-winning economist Friedrich A. Hayek, we’ll consider it “Exhibit C”:

“Man does NOT and canNOT know everything and when he acts as if he does, disaster follows.”

And from the greatest and most tested of our United States’ Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, our “Exhibit D”:

“As I would not be a slave; I would not be a master.”

You well might ask, “What’s all this got to do with the price of Chinese tea?” Exhibit B: When Franklin says, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary security deserve neither liberty nor safety,” he is talking directly about those who would give away your liberty by promising you that their upcoming “Nanny-State” will take care of you from cradle to grave . . . that is, socialists, communists, various Utopians and all manner of collectivists.

When in Exhibit D: Lincoln says, “As I would not be a slave; I would not be a master,” he is talking about those who would enslave you; would become your master as part of the huge government entity that would have its tentacles reaching into every part of everyone’s lives and emphasizing that both roles master and slave are hideous.

In Kipling’s poem Exhibit A: “The Gods of the Copybook Headings,” we’re reminded that change for change’s sake is a losing proposition now and always has been. Some of our traditions are at least two million years old; our culture and the experiences of the past have value and should NOT be discarded on promises of blue sky and concession rights in Atlantis circa 3000 B.C. An awful lot of grief has been created by Utopians and Utopian movements promising brand new Edens but never delivering.

And Hayek’s quotation, Exhibit C: “Man does NOT and canNOT know everything and when he acts as if he does, disaster follows,” is wisdom aiming to protect us against charismatic hucksters who want to sell us a pig in a poke. Just because someone has an attractive, confident personality and believes something with all their heart, mind and soul doesn’t mean they’re right or their words are true . . . and it doesn’t mean you should drink their kool-aid either. TRUE BELIEVERS -- whether they’re the Jim Jones,’ radical Islamist Jihadists, or Heaven’s Gate leaders or anyone following any of those folks – such TRUE BELIEVERS tend to be wrong about thirty times more often then they’re right and if we’re not circumspect and cautious they can lose us our lives, liberty and sacred honor and perhaps our very souls.

The 2008 election was a referendum on these four exhibits . . . the eclectorate got what they deserved: a charismatic huckster and true believer leading us toward his kool-aid. Unfortunately, 2008’s other offering was a progressive Republican who though he was perhaps one hundred times preferable to Barack Obama, was just Tweedle-dumb running against Tweedle-dumber. The biggest potential virtue of Barack Obama is in reminding all American voters of the four great truths represented by Exhibits A, B, C and D and reminding us how wonderful the United States of America is by threatening us seriously with its loss.

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

Rajjpuut

** What in the hell are “copybook headings?” In the old penmanship books they not only taught kids to print and write longhand, but did so with a constant barrage of wise counsel such as: “A penny saved is a penny earned.” “A fool and his money are soon parted.” “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” “Fortune favors the bold.” “Better late than never.” “Never look a gift horse in the mouth.” "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." “If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Etc., etc.
