So out of curiosity, wondering if perhaps the Mike Malloy Flying Monkey Left contingent has come to their collective, "progressive" senses, I took a stroll over to his blog moments ago and what did I discover but a wonderful rant extolling Liz Cheney to "go plan your father's funeral."
www.mikemalloy.com should you care to check for yourself.
I am thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed of myself that I, too, was one of Malloy's followers. And they have the "audacity" to call the right wingers and Tea Party folks "hateful?"
Sorry, Malloy - you help your cause not one bit when you flaunt your hatred, genuine though it may be, out there for others who might not know you for the tool you are and randomly encounter your despicable, hypocritical vitriol hoodwinked by following the lead of "truthseeker."
Makes one wonder what you'd feel if someone advised your daughter the same, huh?
So in the fine, liberal tradition, let me close with a sigh of sadness and frustration and a quote from surely one of your heroes...."oh when will they ever learn? Oh, when will they, ever learn?"
Ya, well, long time, no see....or write as the case may be.
Not much to say actually - if you don't understand by now that the United States of America is crumbling right before your eyes well, there's not much I can contribute to influence your willful blindness and dereliction of your duty as an American to watch the supposed watchdogs of our Constitution and democracy. We're screwed, my friends, and I hope, for your sake, you know that because if you don't, you're gonna wake up and be mighty shocked one day when you realize that your childhood is unrecognizable from what you were taught to expect when you became adults. Ya, I'm talking to you, all you late teen and twenty, even thirty something-ers. You are going to pay dearly for your Facebooks, Twitters, Twatters, Myspaces, Deadspaces between your ears and believe me, none of us on the other side of the 60's is going to feel one bit of smug satisfaction to be able to say we "told you so."
I started this blog after the bloodbath in Fallujah....sick and disgusted over what I saw happening and oh, what a journey it's been. From shock and awe to hope and change I've watched the dismantling of my country and I'm reaching the point where it's crystal clear to me that there's not a damn thing more I can do about it.
I hear The One, who's been running for re-election since he was anointed, has a new campaign slogan....I guess we're ditching the hopey-changey thing for now but keeping the hope part somewhat alive. My opinion? He'd be smarter to tell his beloved illegal aliens that he's adopting a more truthful border protection program and the first step will be to hang a banner clear 'cross the whole deal that will forever immortalize one of his no-doubt famous poets Dante and it will say, facing outward of course, "Abandon hope all ye who enter here."
I know Paul McCartney does it for ya but maybe a quick listen to this might remind you that we're waiting for some LEADERSHIP in the Gulf...makes one wonder whose "ass" you're "going to kick" today. Wait...did YOU, Mr. Civility in Politics REALLY say that on the Today Show? Ah, must be that hopey-changey thing again.
"These are the times that try men's souls." Thomas Paine, Founder Father of the United State Constitutution. Still says, "We, the People" last time I checked. My soul is deeply troubled. Until I read and re-read that word, "We."
Vote ALL incumbents out. All of them. Term limits. Effyou, Pelosi. From me, who cried with pride when you where elected Speak of the House. What a mistake I made.
As all my dear readers know, when I'm too beyond words, that's exactly the case. Literally. Not only am I beyond words, but I'm beyond rage and outrage (yes, there IS a difference) with this health care nightmare The One and his merry band of thieves is trying to show down our throats NO MATTER WHAT. I have NEVER seen such a disgrace in my life and no doubt, our Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves right about now.
Luckily, I have, not only a wonderful friend but a distinguished, published writer to speak for me. So, Shentale, take it away....you speak for me and ALL of us who believe in the Constitution of the United States.
Phuck, Dennis Kucinich.
So are we to understand his switch is about his "concern" about the legitimacy of this inept POTUS? Give me a break. This neophyte man posing as a so called leader RUINED all his legitimacy with all the LIES, DECEIT and pure THUGGERY he and his shyster campaign undertook during the Dem. Primary and wholeheartedly carried on into the General Election. Oh, and as for legitimate: Kucinich should talk with Alice Palmer regarding how loyal and trustworthy his new BFF is.
Mr. Soetoro-Obama has NO respect for women, NO respect for this country and really I don't think ANY respect for any ethnicity other than whatever the hell he is. And quite frankly, I really don't care what he is. All I know is this is one of the sorriest, piss poor examples I've ever seen masquerading as a fully mature man.
I just want his term done and over. It's always about HIM. What happened to being a servant of the PEOPLE? Protector of this NATION? He could give a rat's ass about the future of the U.S.A. It's about him and his foul Presidency. I cannot be the only one who sees this. He doesn't put the welfare of our nation at all in the front of his mind. I never expected him to do so -- but I'm sure there were (and are) some gullible people out there who do and did. They need to wake up and wake up quickly. Following this fool will only lead to disappointment and more anger.
Once a fraud, always a fraud. Anyone from MI and FL alone who have Congressmen supporting this creep's agenda should be voted out. They didn't need their votes during the Dem. Primary so why the hell would anyone think their vote is needed in any future elections? Sorry Kucinich -- CAUCUS FRAUD long ago destroyed ANY credibility this feckless chump may have had. Which I believe he never, ever did in the first place. As for Rep. Kucinich...
I see him as worse than a weasel. He prides himself on being a man of his word. What a liar. I already didn't agree with him on his so called beliefs. He's just another racist, low-life liar like the majority of the politicians in D.C.
I'm so ashamed I ever thought this man was someone I didn't agree with but at least stood by his word. How duped was I? How duped were others? Are Paul Ryan and Michelle Bachman the only decent members left in the House of Representatives? Unbelievable. Two people. Maybe six...the rest...Either they're bigoted, cheaters, beaters of women, battling addictions, immorally oriented, corrupt and who knows what else? I'm sorry for the rant but this is getting so out of control.
I still cannot believe Mrs. Pelosi -- along with most Dems -- are looking to "deem" a bill has passed in order to make it a law. Never mind only a "handful" have actually read the 2,000 plus page bill (and most of them are in the Republican Party -- where NO ONE is voting for this sham of bill). This is just crooked and wrong.
These creeps should be ashamed of themselves. They're so caught up in their fabricated bubble of importance -- until they are unable to see just how utterly disgusting their actions are -- as well as how destructive the end result of their gluttonous, wholly corrupt folly will most likely be for the U.S.
This is a direct slap in the face to all that is decent, honorable and good about the U.S. I'm glad our Founding Fathers aren't around to witness this freak show. I hate I'm around to witness it. Pelosi and her minions are definitely steering us all into a very deep financial pit of peril.
Whoever you are, Madam, I'd like to shake your hand!
"I am a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. Instead, we are burdened with Congressional Dukes and Duchesses who think they know better than the citizens they are supposed to represent.
There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would feel so horribly disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut-job am I? Well, these briefly are the views and issues for which I seekrepresentation:
One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels.. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution.
P.S., I'm not a racist. This is not to be confused withlegal immigration.
Two, the STIMULUS bill. I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you No, but you did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.
Three: Czars. I want the circumvention of our constitutional checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution, and honor it.
Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There are many conflicting opinions and it is too soon for this radical legislation. Quit throwing our nation into politically-correct quicksand.
Five, universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision that will burden me, my children, and grandchildren. Don't you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night without even reading it. Slow down! Fix only what is broken -- we have the best health care system in the world -- and test any new program in one or two states first.
Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereigntyfully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. More is not better! Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real [Constitutional] obligations. Why don't you start there.
Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes -- how did they pull that one off? Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them with any of our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.
Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs -- and that is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person! Why do you want me to hate my employers? And what do you have against shareholders making a profit?
Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.
Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Every company must sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. (Have you ever ripped off a Band-Aid?) We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.
Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk.. Please stop trying to manipulate and appease me with clever wording.. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.
Twelve, unprecedented quick spending.Stop it now. Take a breath. Listen to the people. Slow down and get some input from nonpoliticians and experts on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed-reading our bills into law. I am not an activist.. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent.. I work. I'm busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.
I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at yourarrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is needless urgency and recklessness in all of your recent spending of our tax dollars.
From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on bringing our concerns to Washington . Our president often knows all the right buzzwords like unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.
We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for usand at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented.. You think we're so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work, pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone... and we are now looking at you.
You have awakened us, the patriotic freedom spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office.
We have cancelled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us who will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.
Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this.. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and ourConstitution, and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them.. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you.
If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one.
We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent?
Listen. Because we are coming. We the peopleare coming."
To minimize Bot Bias, I saved the source till the end. The letter was sent to Glenn Beck that he read on the air....Tricked ya, bots, huh? So easily done. I especially love the ones who will rail against Beck, Fox, and yes, even Malloy who, when you confront them on their imbecilic talking points, will say, "oh no, I don't 'watch' or 'listen' cuz I can't stand them." It's one of many reasons we are where we are as a nation - thanks, Bots of ALL Brands.
VOTE THEM OUT! EACH AND EVERY INCUMBENT WHO DOESN'T DECIDE TO SPEND TIME WITH THEIR FAMILY!!! TERM LIMITS! ELECTION REFORM!
Yes, but first, let me say a resounding "THANK YOU" to Senator Evan Bayh for having the grace and insight to know he's aboard the Titanic and jumping to at least save himself - pretty big statement from a guy who was once on the "Messiah's" short list of VP candidates...ya, too bad he lost too cuz look what we got stuck with....anyway, one more incumbent out the door but for the record, Bayh was one who did at least appear to have some semblance of ethics. And kinda cute too. Surely not as handsome as "Senator Six-pack", right, Mike Malloy? No doubt you considered him a blue dog but then again, you're more preoccupied with the male anatomy these days per your brilliant, deeply intellectual blogs so maybe his moderate stance wouldn't matter to you after all...Anyway, the following is from the Canadian press - isn't it amazing how our neighbors can see what bots can't? Though, I will say that it does appear that at least borderline bots seem to be coming to Jesus these days. Has to be a good sign somewhere, no matter WHAT universe you happen to be dwelling in. So once again, here ya go, Bots...see if you can get through at least the first three paragraphs...you just might learn something.
Obama Believes He Has the Secret Blueprint to the Universe
ByKelly O'ConnellSunday, February 14, 2010 There must be a simple explanation for President Obama’s stubborn refusal to admit mistakes or change his failed far-left policies. Perhaps Barack stumbled upon a secret blueprint to the cosmos which guides his every decision, fallen from the lap of the gods? This could explain making many disastrous choices, yet still carrying on happily in the midst of relentless failure.
Yet, with so many disastrous policies imploding all around, what other reason could there be for his upbeat and sanguine attitude? How else can one explain his utter mishaps, boondoggles and catastrophes against his fulsome self-satisfaction? Or, why the epic refusal to try new strategies when it’s clear his economic ideas are failing worse than cold-fusion?
So, Obama must be reading from a separate sheet of music from the rest of America. And this has undoubtedly immunized him from reacting badly to his unprecedented collapse in popularity. But could Obama be right, and everyone else wrong when it comes to economics? According to Wittgenstein’s “Private Language” rule, the answer is a resounding, “No!”
I. Is Keynes or Wittgenstein the Answer?
Keynes: In a nutshell, what Obama did his first year was rampantly spend taxpayer money to “solve” our financial woes by staggering government investment. Pointedly, Barack is spending borrowed money, to be repaid later, to solve current problems. This controversial fiscal policy is called “Keynesian Economics.” This strategy has several transparent dangers. First, very large deficits can be quickly built upon borrowed sums, which must be paid back with interest. Second, there is a keen possibility government spending, using tax dollars, is not an efficient way to build an economy. If the latter is true, huge deficits will be amassed which would not even achieve any meaningful sustained growth. So future generations would be saddled with the triple tragedy of having massive debts to repay, which originally achieved no economic good, but now which have to be repaid with interest, from a diminished economy. But the question remains, what if Keynesian Economics doesn’t work?!! Hunter Lewis’ book, “Where Keynes Went Wrong” goes into great detail explaining why it does not.
Wittgenstein: The conundrum here is this: Obama argues that he and his economic advisors are so wise and far-sighted, that decisions made today which might seem reckless or even nonsensical, like wildly spending future sums on mostly forgettable programs, are actually astute fiscal policy in the longterm. But does this argument make sense? Actually, no – for reasons outlined by the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, in his famous “Private Language” analysis in the book Philosophical Investigations. The summary of his argument, as applied here to Obamanomics, is that a decision which seems stupid cannot be claimed “wise” simply because the decision-maker pretends he has secret, or even mystical “messianic” knowledge that the average person cannot understand.
More specifically, the “Private Language” argument offers a fairly straightforward standard. Wittgenstein asks whether there could be a “Private Language” owned by only a single person? He answers that this is impossible. Why? For the same reason no single person can own a “fact” knowable only to himself. In other words, language only makes sense when it is communicated to another person. Likewise, we cannot call something a “fact” which cannot be coherently communicated or proved to other people.
In the present case, there is no such thing as a successful economic fact, known secretly only to Barack Obama, but which still should be used by the US government for public policy. If Barack has a good economic idea that costs a trillion dollars, it should be brought out and exhaustively debated, not simply whisked through Congress in a few days. And if the idea is sound, it will thrive in a sunlight examination. But as happened, the last Stimulus was passed almost without debate on the theory the “Next Great Depression” would result if the bill wasn’t instantly approved. But how can we even be sure a collapse was imminent?
Barack has a Private Language problem with his Obamanomics, in that he promises his ideas will work, despite any evidence to the contrary – regardless of how illogical the ideas seem, how contrary the math turns out to be, or despite how contradictory the current outcome is. Barack blankly claims we must just put our faith in him because of his profound economic knowledge. But isn’t it possible Obama has already made a terrible decision to waste nearly a trillion dollars on a Stimulus Bill that did not keep unemployment from topping 8%, as promised? Further, claiming jobs were created or “saved” by the Bill, despite hard evidence that eight million folks have lost their job during Obama’s tenure, seems sheer sophistry.
Critics have further pointed out the Stimulus Bill was not built for stimulus, to begin with. Instead, borrowed money will be spent for years, which was not the immediate jolt of adrenaline most assumed would occur when it was passed. But these facts certainly help explain why unemployment has hovered near 10% for months, as total unemployment – by every category – is now supposedly 17%. Yet the administration has talked about another “stimulus” or “jobs” bill that would cost hundreds of billions more.
Yet, critics now insist the entire train wreck of “stimulus bills” which are mostly local congressional pork projects, should be immediately stopped as they do not work in building an economy, even in the short term. And these experts point to the current lack of results as proof positive of their assertions. But assuming that Obama’s team really is the cream of the crop, and they do know what they are doing, then why are they breaking their necks to spend as much money as quickly as possible? For to add up Obama’s fiscal damage, to the stimulus Bill we must add the TARP bank-bailout, the Detroit car maker investment, all Wall Street and investment banking bailouts, etc., which total in the trillions and cannot be repaid soon in any reasonable scenario. So, in other words, is Obama doing grave damage to the US economy on purpose?
Marx; Cloward-Piven; & Economic Sabotage
MARX: We must now ask why Obama would want to purposely damage the US economy, if his depredations are not accidental? The answer could quite simply be that Barack Obama is a genuine communist. In fact, most of his family were either sympathetic to socialism or Marxism, including both fathers, his mother, his grandparents, a childhood mentor Mr. Davis, his friends Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, his pastor of two decades Rev. Wright, and even members of his White House team, like Van Jones. So, since water seeks its own level, the idea of Obama actually carrying Marxist values inside his heart would hardly seem shocking, given his background.
Now, if Barack is a closet Marxist, then his beliefs teach him that free market capitalism is a bad thing and it hurts people. So, destroying our capitalist economy would result in liberation of many American people, since capitalism is an unfair and wicked economic system. In other words, since Marxists hate capitalism because they believe it is evil, to destroy capitalism helps people who are slaves in that type economy. Karl Marx once wrote, “Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.”
Marxists believe that there are two types of people – the poor and the rich; or the oppressed and oppressors; ie, the master and slaves. Marx also said, “Capital is reckless of the health or length of life of the laborer, unless under compulsion from society.” What Marx wanted was a revolution liberating downtrodden workers creating a society without envy, or greed, or war. He said, “Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite!” This would be achieved when pure communism was instituted, which would occur automatically, someday. Marx stated, “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.”
Marxists are opposed to capitalism as it equals economic slavery for the masses. Marx taught a natural progression would sweep mankind towards paradise on earth, by going first from capitalism, then to socialism, and finally to communism, the latter being a state where people own no property. He also said, “Democracy is the road to socialism.” Marx again wrote, “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.”
To be a Marxist means a person is committed to just a few things. First, a revolution needs to occur overthrowing the tyranny of capitalist slavery. Then socialism is established, which finally morphs to communism. Yet, these things cannot happen until the foundation of a capitalist economy is ruptured. And such a break might occur in many ways – through war, revolution, propaganda, intrigue or even internal sabotage.
Cloward-Piven: After the failure of capitalist societies to spontaneously opt for socialism or communism, Marxists were left for decades to ponder a way to reach heaven on earth without self-induced worker revolt. In the 1960’s, two Columbia University professors developed a theory on how a healthy democratic economy might be pushed towards insolvency. This is described by the Internet site Discover the Networks: “...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.”
What is occurring now in Washington DC, with rampant spending and recklessly designed projects, could be called part of a Cloward-Piven strategy to undermine the US. Certainly, this is the effect it is having, regardless of its intent. But this is hardly relevant when one realizes that Marxism has always been dependent upon some hardy souls taking risks to attack an economy and help sabotage it to make ready for the next phase of the worker revolution.
Marxist Sabotage: Several books have pointed out some of the classic modes of sabotage that Marxists have employed over the years. In the first place, Marxist communist doctrine calls out all workers to revolt, according to a book by the Committee on Un-American Activities, US House of Representatives, called “Facts on Communism, Vol. I – The Communist ideology.” The logic here includes the declaration that since capitalism is rooted in evil, any manner of fighting this enslaver of mankind is ethical – including armed revolt, lying, cheating, stealing and killing. So a true communist is not going to be held back by “bourgeoisie” middle-class morality from fighting the good fight. But sabotage could occur through union subterfuge, strikes in various sectors, military and governmental espionage, physical assaults upon infrastructure, voter or political deceit, propaganda campaigns, infiltration of schools, entertainment or media, etc. (see addendum, below)
The call to Revolution is the most hallowed of all communist ideals, and must come before all other concerns. So one can see the Marxist paradigm as one of unmitigated sacrifice to the cause of revolutionary activities. The House book states that the “Socialist Revolution” will call all the enlightened, saying “...it appeals to men to devote their lives to the cause of the Socialist Revolution, regardless of whether or not that revolution would satisfy their needs or improve their condition.” One can see here the strong evangelical element of Marxist revolutionary propaganda, which was actually borrowed from the Bible. In terms of ethics, only the revolution matters, and all men will be judged by this yardstick.
Clarence B. Carson’s fine book, “Basic Communism: It’s Rise, Spread and Debacle in the 20th Century” spells out the various aspects of modern Marxist sabotage. Carson writes, “It has become sufficiently clear since the 1950’s…that Communists are extensively engaged in what can be best understood as sabotage in the United States as well as other lands.” Carson goes on to describe how a majority of the 500 Soviet “journalists” working abroad were actually agents devoted to propaganda and how the world media was sometimes either fooled, seduced or even bribed into touting their claims. Sometimes obscure foreign papers were used to plant stories back in the States. For example, the Ethiopian Herald was employed to help salt faked stories about how the CIA was poisoning Cuban crops by sending viruses into its plant and animal stock. Today, who can argue that the Western media is now largely leftist after decades of Marxism dominating academia in the guise of Political Correctness? This PC movement is nothing less than Marxism translated into social doctrines meant to undermine the traditional societies of the West.
Sometimes secret agents have insinuated themselves into foreign governments and wreaked havoc as spies. But the biggest fear for many is that highly placed Americans of communist sympathy will run amok within the halls of power. Such a case occurred with Alger Hiss, who – much like Barack Obama – graduated with distinction from Harvard law school and began working for the US government. He was later famously outed as a communist mole by Whitaker Chambers and sentenced to prison. But many have asked – What if a communist rose so high in the US government he could not be detected or stopped from rampaging before great damage was done?
It cannot be doubted that Barack Obama is already on the verge of historic failure as an economic planner, given his epic deficits which could easily lead to US loan defaults and insolvency. Yet the real shocker is how the borrowed money is simply being completely wasted while the private sector and especially small businesses are dying on the vine as loans are no longer easily procured. The clear question is – could this possibly be accidental?
Obama is certainly far left in his policies. And following the careers of the great Marxist leaders, whether Lenin, Stalin or Mao, reveals them all to have been furiously arrogant and utterly misinformed upon economics, and their stupid mistakes lead to the deaths of tens of millions. Perhaps this is inevitable, given Marxism’s utter contempt for the details of capitalism. But the question remains – is Obama simply a misinformed, yet well-meaning economic misfit; or is he intent on crashing American capitalism to implement the huge changes he ominously promised during his campaign?
Barack’s relentless confidence might not be so much from his belief that his atomic Keynesian routine will work. Instead, it just might be because he knows it will fail spectacularly. And if it does, Obama will be in a great position to implement socialism or Marxism to “save” America from its evil Capitalist soul.
ADDENDUM: This list of 45 communist goals will well-illustrate what strategies communists have used to try to undermine America. It was taken from Cleon Skousen’s 1958 book “The Naked Communist”, and posted in the US House Congressional record in 1963:
The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike. http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm
VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT!!! EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM...YES, YOU, TOO, MISSUS ROSA DELAURO...BU-BYE!!! ELECTION REFORM AND TERM LIMITS!
I'm really startin' to about lose it now - how 'bout you, dear Reader? Are you as fed up as I am with looking around you and wondering what in the world is happening to this country? Don't know where to seek Truth vs. "truth according to the bias of the individual reporting it as "Truth?" I'm so sick of petitions, blogs, including my own, or pundits on whatever side of the political spectrum they lean on....or, how 'bout this? How about every time you surf the channels that inevitably, in some fashion, in some way, whether a blip or an extended bout of coverage, I look at the face of this prez with his mouth moving and each time I see that I marvel at how.....at how....at...well, just HOW can I be seeing and hearing what continues to make no sense to me? Do you ever feel like your whole value system has suddenly either a: gone topsy-turvy or b: gone missing? I can't seem to tell truth from fiction any longer whether it be on the cable networks, except for a few isolated cases, the print medium which I've all but discarded at this point because their slants are so obvious and I'm not interested in that...I want news...unbiased...untainted by some journalist who forgot what the rules were instead of reporting facts as spouting opinion - uh, like, duh, who CARES about their opinions??? I want facts - ya, as in "just the facts, ma'am" kind of facts. And I continue to have trouble finding them. And as you know from reading this blog, I'm a huge proponent of one researching facts; though I refuse to do that here on this blog FOR you, I continually encourage, ya, even cajole you to do the research yourself. I practice that. I do that. On a daily basis. Sure, some days less than others but hey, that's life and sometimes, we all need a break from it. It's scary out there. At least the things I'm seeing are. I've never been so frightened for not only my country but for the entire world right now. I see political madness all around me - on BOTH sides - let me restate - on BOTH sides which has only served to alienate me from whatever brand of extremist kool-aide seems to be being served and it makes me want my head to spin right off my shoulders. The labeling we do of each other in this country is a phenomenon unto itself. Democrat. Republican. Right. Left. Conservative. Progressive. Liberal. Fundamentalist. Sharia Law. Constitutionalist. Libertarian. Green. Catholic. Jew. Negro. White. Stupid. Ugly. Islam. You name it. You get the point. It never stops. And the struggle around those labels is mind-staggering. Does it suck your energy up to think of it or watch it unfold, forcing you to take a step back just so you can at least say "wow?" Sure does mine. It's exhausting. I'm tired of having to contemplate corrupt people who we elected - gave them their jobs - only to watch the average American struggle more and more not only to stay afloat but also to survive. I want these corrupt Congresspeople out of their jobs - how 'bout you? I'm sick of being told one thing (called campaign promises) and watching the liar of the day turn around and do something different that is u s u a l l y NOT in our best interests - but theirs. I know for a "fact" that MY Congresswoman, Rosa De Lauro, is living pretty well. Why, just last month I read about the amazing dinner parties she throws for her colleagues so they can sorta catch up and outline their issues. In her DC diggs. Must be nice, huh? Even nicer to be Pelosi's BFF. Surely THAT must curry up some lovely favor. And to think. She and I attended the same private, all-girl's, most prestigious, Catholic high school in all of this "elitist" Connecticut - Lauralton Hall - also known as The Academy of Our Lady of Mercy run by the Sisters of Mercy. Oh, for sure, she was years ahead of me but still, you folks who know how those schools are know that there's this like, um, "sisterhood" kinda concept thing out there...sort of like how the medical profession sticks together? And how the lobbyists stick to the big wigs in THAT gang? Kinda like that. Bet you thought I was gonna pick on Rosa, huh? As I've promised in several previous blogs? Well, I am. But not right now. I'm too disgusted to focus on any one thing. A few things filtered in over the past weekend while I was actively trying to take a break from watchdogging it lest I go insane - like the little business of the prez not once, not twice, but THREE times "mis-speaking" (remember THAT word?) the word "corpsman" presumably WITH a teleprompter while Sarah Palin had a few words jotted on her hand. "Wow" was all I could say. I couldn't get my mind around it all. Because it leads to bigger questions...and, more of them! And sometimes I just want to have the power to wave a magic wand and have them all immediately fired with good, honest, decent people committed to the idea of representation of the people and to exercise their will. I can't even TELL you how many times I've called DeLauro's (not picking on her) office and not received any concrete answer about a thing. Oh, her staff is lovely...we have some lively chats to say the least - they're great. They really, for the most part, know how to take it. And we have to cut them a break too. They're only doing the job they were hired to do which is to protect those people from us when the irony is that is ought to be the other way around these days. Another layer. I wish I could tell you how many times I've had to be the one to inform them that something is out there floating on the internet that I'd like to have an answer for and they have no idea what I'm talking about until I provide the information. So how come I'm not a paid staffer then? Ya. Think about that one. It's frustrating, imagine? If you happen to make calls like that, you already know what I'm saying. Some days is drownin' days just popped out of my fingers. I remember when we were talking about "Bush Fatigue." 'member? And that was after 6 years or so. I'm at the point that I worry whether my angst over The One could lead to a seizure I get so worked up just seeing his dead eyes! And every time I turn around - there he is. Pre - PRE - Superbowl Interview!!! I was disappointed. I was certain I was going to glance at the 20 yard line and see a podium and teleprompters set up to precede the half-time show. And then, I'd be saying to CBS, "Wow" - incredible finale - cuz once again I ask "Who Are You?"
VOTE THEM OUT! EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE OPPORTUNISTS WHO FORGOT WHO THEY ANSWER TO! ONE VOICE, ONE MESSAGE. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT!!!
You'd think I'd have had something to say the last few days given the hoopla over the State of the Union address, wouldn't ya, huh? Well, of course I'd thought about it and so sorry to disappoint but I really do have a good reason why I chose silence over sarcasm. Odd from one always telling YOU to stay on top of things and do your research and blah blah blah but I really do have an excuse. Well, several actually.
First, I know just where to go to get a transcript to read the Gospel According to Obama any time I wish. So, that would have been my preference. IF I wanted to know what he had to say when he went to the mountain top. The trouble is, I don't. Here's why. I already knew it would be full of lies, spin, campaign rhetoric and frankly, the biggest reason is that looking at him, simply makes me sick. Literally. Gee, ya think it could have anything to do with the fact that he's been all over my TV every time I turn around? Saturation to the nth degree? I don't think so though. It's more about the fact that I can't stomach to watch liars in progress and given how he sent his soldiers out to the Sunday road shows spinning the MA victory to something unrecognizable making it crystal clear that the folks in the White House STILL don't get it, I knew there would be no reason whatsoever to spend precious time watching this incompetent, inexperienced and arrogant charlatan having his ego pumped up by Ms. Purple Pelosi Jack in the Box publicly orgasming every time he gave her a special charge - her own personal "underwear bomber" for sure, assuming she WAS wearing any. Is she mentally ill? I mean it. Is she? Have you ever seen displays such as this? Especially after the press had such fun mocking her last performance when the Messiah spoke to the sea of corruption before and behind him? If I were him, I'd be worried her face was going to crack and shards of skin might pierce my back given WHATEVER it is she's done to her face. What in the world is wrong with this woman who continues to ignore the voices of the people who have now in THREE states rejected the attempts to ram this dastardly health care plan down the throats of the majority who do NOT WANT THIS HEALTHCARE PLAN!!! The few clips I was ambushed with confirmed that she'd learned nothing from her previous bizarre performances nor from the voters in Massachusetts.
And in those clips, I re-learned what I already knew. He's absolutely tone deaf when it comes to healthcare (and anything else for that matter...marxists always are). But interestingly enough, he devoted what, 4 or 5 sentences to it in order to pretend he gives a good damn about jobs and the economy. That raising the debt ceiling? How'd ya like that one? I hear he dropped the jive talkin' he used when he addressed those poor people in Ohio (even though he told them he was in Michigan that none of the press picked up on surprise) but that's what happens when you step away from the teleprompter at town hall meetings....besides, they're much more effective to use in classrooms when addressing children, right? God Almighty, America, don't you see it yet? Don't you see what an enormous mistake was made in electing this 140 day Senator to solve the complex problems we faced prior TO his selection? Though, rumor has it he made sure, once again, that everyone knew hey, none of this ain't MY fault yanno. Guess he never heard of Harry Truman but then again, he also thinks he rules 57 states. And thinks he's in Michigan when in Ohio. And that he needs to apologize everywhere he goes for OUR country. And preaches the Bible of Saul Alinsky...oh ya, be SURE and look THAT dude up.
Don't you bots get it yet that the spouse of Michelle Who Recently Is Proud of Her Country For The First Time is all smoke screens and mirrors? Don't you get it yet that he's done nothing but spend, spend, spend and make promises he had NO intention of keeping? Whatever happened to CSPAN? Transparency? Earmarks? Healthcare (ya, remember universal?), the war(s), Guantanamo Bay, and on and on but why is it ok with you that when he lowers the bar even further, you still try to limbo under it even if it might pull off your own skin in the attempt? The analyses and the exit polls PROVED that healthcare was the biggest reason for the Massachusetts Massacre and what do they say??? That people voted as they did because they "support" the President. I kid you not. Ask Robert Gibbs (his press secretary in case you don't know). These are the kinds of people whom you could spit right in their faces and they'd tell you it was raining. Which is fine. But WHY do YOU buy into it? Why are YOU content to let them continue to rob you, your children and your grandchildren blind and sit back and take it? Do you really care so little about your country of birth or properly naturalized to that you let this go on right in front of your faces and don your sheepskins chanting All Hail Obama? What in the world have we become here? North Korea, Iran - saber rattling? Hardly. They KNOW we have a weak man in the White House. They KNOW he's clueless about history and don't give me that Harvard crap. When I see his transcripts which continue to be withheld I'll render an opinion on that. When I think of all the times I laughed about Bush-isms only to learn that something worse would come along - when I think of seeing him reading "My Pet Goat" in a classroom, little did I ever think it would cross my mind whether he was reading it with or without a teleprompter.
Look. We DO have some hope here....just not his brand. Our hope lies in the courage of the good people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts who cried out in one voice against the agenda of this socialist, corrupt administration. We CAN make him a one-term president who should be right at home with the likes of Jimmah Cahter and Bush '41. Not only CAN, but we must. And we must clean out the House....totally. Good-bye Rosa DeLaura who sent out the most bizarre newsletter yet today saying absolutely nothing except how hard she's working to get that healthcare thing done. Guess SHE wasn't paying attention to MA either. But given she's Pelosi's BFF and quite the hostess in her DC diggs I'll be speaking about down the road, I'm not surprised. They still don't get this is no longer about party but principle. They still don't get that THEY work for US. They still don't get that they have the lowest approval ratings in history and yet, they plow ahead, working for their pet corporations and lobbyists so they CAN hostess magnificent dinners that I'm sure any one of the homeless people in CT would love to have just one morsel of....ever notice the clothing they wear? The jewelry? The Brooks Bros. suits? Are YOU wearing those kinds of things? Do YOU have your own private jet to take you cross country with someone else paying for it? Do YOU have a cadillac insurance plan that someone else is paying for while the rest of those you know are worried THEIR care will be denied them if their individual status on paper classifies them as a burden to society rather than a good little worker bee? Ya, that's what I thought.
So, that's why I have nothing to say about the State of the Union. Unless The One stood at the podium and said "My fellow Americans, the state of the union sucks," every teleprompted word he uttered was a lie. And if you bought it, shame on you. Shame on your ignorance. Shame on your cowardice. And shame on you for what you've done to your children. And their children. You deserve exactly what your Messiah plans to deliver you. With zero right to complain. Why? Because it's your fault.
VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT! EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE CORRUPT, GREEDY CRIMINALS. IT IS TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!
P.S. Hey, Malloy....what's up with the fixation on the looks of Republican men? Maybe you ought to get that checked out. Once upon a time, there was substance to your writings. Boy, talk about psychobabble, huh?
