Obama’s regime is lawless. No one holds him to account. Corruption is exhonerated. Laws are drafted in secret or enacted by decree. Bills are passed in the middle of the night without anyone reading them. We are become Soviet.
Fundamental Transformation nearly complete. Your so-called “Representatives” at the Kremlin – er …. CONgress have doomed our economy and your children’s economic future by automatically raising the debt ceiling for the next two years.
Obama’s entire lawless agenda has been fully funded and financed by YOU via the chicanery of the Ruling Class Oligarchy in Mordor on the Potomac.
Gun grabs, property seizures, EPA oppression, IRS as a weapon – FULLY FUNDED.
ALL OF IT PASSED in the middle of the night by McConnell’s Senate – AFTER John Boehner orchestrated the House deal in secret with Obama himself.
There IS NO representation in Washington unless you are a Marxist/Socialist.
In the new standard of late-night bill-passing sessions, the Senate gave final approval to a ridiculous behemoth budget that funds Obama’s entire agenda with limitless spending early Friday, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign and fund the rest of his fundamental transformation of America into a Soviet-style hellhole.
The final vote on passage was 64-35, as Mitch McConnell’s Republican oligarchs joined forces with Democrat Marxist Fascists over the objections of GOP presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, all of whom voted against the deal. The bill is marketed by the Praetorian Pravda media as averting a debt default, avoiding a partial government shutdown and setting unlimited spending priorities to the tune of over two TRILLION dollars for the next two years. The deal handcuffs a new congress and a new president and forces them to continue funding Obama’s entire agenda – even after he supposedly leaves office.
Earlier in Friday’s session, the Senate voted 63-35 to end debate on the measure. The vote to approve the bill was taken just after 3 a.m. EDT.
Republican leadership on orders from the Ruling Class under Boehner made secret deals with Obama because they were intent on steering Congress away from their duty to use the power of the purse to restrain a lawless executive branch. Former Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, felt a particular urgency days before leaving Congress, to screw the American taxpayer and subject our children and grandchildren to a bleak future, while lawmakers look ahead to presidential and congressional shell-game elections next year.
Why did Obama flood the country with Illegals? Here’s the answer: “If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country – Barrack Hussein Obama March 18, 2015”
The goal? Replace the existing citizens and constituencies. Subjugate Americans and especially White Conservatives.
Of course we knew this was coming on top of making laws by decree, using Alphabets to ban your lifestyle and doing end-runs around Congress to enact treaties that aid and comfort the Jihadists of the globe while enacting his Climate Change Plan of America’s regression into the stone age. Now comes word that Obama is supporting mandatory “everybody voting”. Meaning everyone will be forced to cast a vote in the next election.
While some people think that is just terrific, and will no doubt clap like trained seals – this is yet another push towards ending any semblance of a Republic into a full-blown Statist mobocracy. This new initiative by Obama has already been forwarded after the shellacking the Democrat party was handed in the November elections. Remember what His Heinous said in the aftermath of that election:
Saddam Hussein Obama, the Emperor and current President of the United States has officially gone off the deep end. No, it’s not a requirement that all inner city kids drop midnight basketball and be forced to learn golf.
He’s supporting the idea of “mandatory voting” for United States citizens in national elections. From David Boyer in the Washington Times tonight:
President Obama, whose party was trounced in last year’s midterm election due to poor turnout among Democrats, endorsed the idea of mandatory voting Wednesday.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
Mr. Obama raised the subject during a discussion of curbing the influence of campaign donations in U.S. elections. The president said he had never discussed the idea publicly before, but said Australia and some other countries have compulsory voting.
Are you F*#!ing kidding me?!?!?
HIS voting bloc barely can spell the word “Constitution” much less read the document itself and this is the kind of hare-brained Saddam Hussein type of stunt he promotes! To make matters worse, he thinks that this will cure many of our nation’s ills. He has not called for any type of legislation or Executive Order yet to enforce this plan but the article points out the obvious as it continues:
The president didn’t commit to pushing a mandatory voting initiative at the federal level but said, “that may end up being a better strategy in the short term” than finding a solution to curbing campaign donations.
Australia is one of 11 nations worldwide with mandatory voting. Australians who fail to vote can be fined, or even jailed for repeatedly not casting a ballot.
So because Australia is run like a Third World nation we should join that trap also? Hell, Australia has done more to limit their citizen’s rights than any American can imagine yet by floating this idea, I think he is hinting that he would like for this to become a lifetime position for his ego and administration. Because the elections did not go his way, he used the following twisted logic to support this idea as the article states:
The president repeated his frequent complaint that Democrats tend to stay home in midterm elections. Last November, Republicans regained control of the Senate and added seats to their majority in the House despite Mr. Obama’s massive fundraising efforts for his party.
“The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups,” Mr. Obama said. “And they’re the folks who are scratching and climbing to get into the middle class and they’re working hard. There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls. We should want to get them into the polls.”
Wow. Saddam Hussein would be proud.
If implemented, Saddam Hussein Obama would be even more thrilled with the 95% turnout and re-election by a 90-10% margin. Of course to achieve this goal, he probably will have to deploy his DHS domestic military to supervise how everyone of us will vote. Just like good old Saddam or Stalin would.
Obama lifts up Islam while providing aid and comfort to ISIS at his Summit on ‘Extremism’ last week, and rewrites history to state that Islam was woven into America at our Founding.
In order to fundamentally transform an entire country and society, one has to rewrite it’s history to reflect a false projection so that society will accept the imposition of alien values, culture and principles. Since 2008, Obama has publicly engaged in this effort on every front imaginable. He has continuously bashed America in front of the world while admonishing us here at home of sins that he insists we must pay a penalty for. From economics to ideology to religious faith – Obama has told big lies, over and over while insinuating other big lies – to the point that he now thinks he can blatantly rewrite history to impose a false narrative for the express purpose of ‘fundamentally transforming the United States of America’.
Obama publicly stated ‘America is no longer a Christian nation” as a pretext to morally equivocate alien beliefs and ideologies and get them into public acceptance.
Obama follows that textbook example, and what better way to do so than to start at the beginning of our history and erase the entire context, principle and purpose of the nation?
So at the nefarious White House summit last week to absolve Islam and blame Christianity and Americans for ‘violent extremism’ in front of a host of invited Islamic leaders from around the world – Obama stated that not only were the terrorists of ISIS not Muslim, but that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of America since it’s founding”.
Historically – this is one of his biggest and potentially most damaging lies to foist upon the country. Islam had absolutely no involvement or place in America’s early history – not the war of Independence, the thinking of the Founders or our establishing history. The actual first involvement of Islam upon America was one foisted upon the young nation similar to what we see Islam doing today: waging jihad, conquering territory by the sword, taking slaves, demanding tribute and so forth.
However, history and facts do not matter to Obama and his ideologues – only their intent to fundamentally transform America matters. Even so far as to give aid and comfort to ISIS and the Islamic Jihadists of the world by exclaiming at the close of their ‘summit’ that these Islamic terrorists “have legitimate grievances” and need us to provide better jobs and opportunities in order to get their demented warriors to choose flipping burgers instead of setting humans ablaze and cutting off heads. Nevermind that ISIS is possibly the wealthiest terror organization on the planet and many of their Jihadists had jobs that they left in order to go wage war on infidels. No, no no. The narrative is that these Islamists have been impoverished by the policies of America and we Americans drive Muslims to wage jihad on us because we are Islamophobic – and if we dare call them terrorists, it only gives them legitimacy and causes them to hate us. ISIS has seized upon that insanity coming from the Obama regime, and is now using Obama’s own words in their own propaganda against us in order to gain converts for their global caliphate cause.
Obama’s big lies keep getting bigger, following the Goebbel’s adage that if you tell the big lie often enough – it will become accepted as the truth.
The truth however is this: Obama commits treason with our avowed enemies who are waging war on us and state they intend to subjugate us to Islam – while also rewriting our history to create a fiction out of thin air that Islam was an integral part of our foundation as a country – and that Islam has contributed to our wealth and prosperity.
Obama has committed treason. Understand it. Say it. For of all the enemies America has ever faced, HE – Obama, is perhaps it’s most insidious enemy of America and liberty to ever exist.
In his bloviating speech on Thursday at his summit on countering violent extremism, President Obama bent over backwards to make nice with Islam. Not only were terrorists not Muslim, President Obama stated, but Islam played a crucial role in America’s founding.
“Here in America,” Obama stated, “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”
Obama seems significantly more comfortable with this characterization of the historic role of Islam than he is with the non-fictional actual historic role of Christianity and Judaism in the American founding.
After all, this is the same man who stated in 2006, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
This is the same president who said in April 2009, “Although, as I mentioned, we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values. I think modern Turkey was founded with a similar set of principles.”
It is fair to say that modern Turkey was not founded upon the same principles as the United States. It is also fair to say that Islam has not been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding, at least not in any meaningful sense.
That does not mean that there were no Muslims in America at the founding — many African slaves were originally Muslim, and were forcibly converted from that faith. But to say that Islam as a religion has been “woven into the fabric of our country since our founding” is simply false. The first wave of Muslim immigrants to the United States did not begin until well after the Civil War. The first mosque in the United States was not built until 1915, by most reports.
Islam had zero impact on the founders or their philosophy – less than zero, given that the founders despised the religion, or what they knew of it. President Obama fictionalized this history at an Iftar dinner in 2012:
As I’ve noted before, Thomas Jefferson once held a sunset dinner here with an envoy from Tunisia — perhaps the first Iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago. And some of you, as you arrived tonight, may have seen our special display, courtesy of our friends at the Library of Congress — the Koran that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. And that’s a reminder, along with the generations of patriotic Muslims in America, that Islam — like so many faiths — is part of our national story.
Well, not so much. That magical “first Iftar” was a meeting between Sidi Solima Mellimelli, an emissary of the brutal Barbary pirates, and the president. Jefferson had over Mellimelli in an attempt to bribe him into submission after the USS Constitutioncaptured ships from the bey of Tunis. Mellimelli requested food, lodgings, and concubines.
Jefferson already knew of Islam, having been educated in 1786 after Barbary pirates attempted to blackmail America into monetary tribute. At that time, the Barbary emissary justified piracy with reference to the Koran, according to a report from Jefferson:
The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.
John Quincy Adams, writing of these negotiations, stated:
The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force.
Quincy Adams would later lament, “Such is the spirit, which governs the hearts of men, to whom treachery and violence are taught as principles of religion.”
As Thomas S. Kidd writes, philosophers upon whom the founders relied had similarly negative views of Islam. Montesquieu wrote that the Turks were despotic. William Blackstone wrote that religion could be used for despotism, as shown by “terrible ravages committed by the Saracens in the east, to propagate the religion of Mahomet.” Thomas Paine wrote of Islam in Common Sense, but only as a reference point for despotic attempts to stifle liberty: he said that divine right of kings was a “superstitious tale, conveniently timed, Mahomet like, to cram hereditary right down the throats of the vulgar.”
The historical record demonstrates that Islam had virtually no role in the foundation of the early Republic outside of being used as a negative comparison point for freedom and self-government.
President Obama is obviously rewriting history. But since he’s busily rewriting the present, too, why should anyone be surprised?
By allowing ideology to trump good national security practice, the administration’s recent summit on “Violent Extremism” has empowered America’s enemies.
Friday saw the close of the of the three-day international summit on violent extremism hosted by the White House.
Coming as it did just a just after the release of ISIS/Islamic State videos on the immolation of Lt Kassasbeh, the Jordanian Royal Air Force pilot, and the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Christians, and the reported death of another US hostage, the timing allowed it potentially to be a perfect platform for a muscular response to the barbarity of the Islamic State, for the announcement of actions akin to the attacks against ISIS launched by King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Sisi of Egypt.
Instead, the President spoke of the real grievances the Muslim world has had with the West, the danger of Islamophobia in the U.S., and the need for more community outreach. As the same time, Marie Harf of the State Department gave an interview in which she presented “more jobs” as the answer to the rise of global jihadist movements, and Eric Holder attackedFOX News for its obsession with discussing “radical Islam” and “Islamic extremism.” All this just after the President used the National Prayer Breakfast to compare ISIS atrocities today with Christians using violence in the name of Jesus centuries in the past. How these statements were meant to weaken our enemies is not clear.
That enemy, whether it is was Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, ISIS in Iraq, or the Tsarnaev brothers who bombed the Boston marathon, has a narrative, a story they tell to recruit new terrorists and justify the mass murders they commit daily.
That story is not one of America failing to provide jobs for the world’s needy, or the lack of community outreach in America. It is a story of Islam under attack by the West, a perpetual Holy War against the infidel until the House of Islam – Dar al Islaam – covers the world and all live under sharia in a new Caliphate.
When the Commander-in-Chief speaks of our crusades, he reinforces the message of the people who beheaded those 21 Christians. And ironically, when Marie Harf says all America has to do is solve the world’s problems, she too helps our enemies, unwittingly portraying America as an imperial nation that must become involved in everyone’s business and shape their futures whether or not we have been asked to do so or not.
Ignorance is a very dangerous thing. The mere fact that no one in a position of power in our government understands that the Islamic State beheaded the 21 Christians because they were infidels but immolated Lt Kassasbeh because he was an apostate, demonstrates just how little we know the enemy in this the 14th year of the war against the Global Jihadi Movement. Those two different horrific acts were religiously and theologically determined.
Faith matters to our foes. They have read the Koran. For them, Chapter 9 Verse 5, which reads:
And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the unbelievers wherever you find them, capture them and besiege them and lie in wait for them with every stratagem of war.
is not a remnant of a 7th century story but the eternal word of Allah.
The Attorney General said this week: “The terminology, it seems to me, has little to no impact on what ultimately we have to do.” Would he say the same of a doctor diagnosing him in hospital? If words have meaning, then what we call something matters. Cancer is not that same as the flu.
America and her allies are in a war with people who do what they do to please their God and obtain salvation by serving him as warriors. Washington summits and more community outreach will not stop the next attack against the Homeland. And quoting the Crusades to prove how relative all things really are will only embolden new recruits to rally under the flag of Jihad.
A Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on “Countering Violent Extremism,” but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press.
Imam Sheikh Sa’ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, Minn., recited a “verse from the Quran” following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.
On ‘fundamentally transforming the United States of America’, Barrack Hussein Obama declares that he has ‘laid a new foundation’ for the country, ‘to remake America’ into the self-evident Despotic Fascist Marxist state we warned you was coming.
“Fifteen years into this new century, we have picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off, and begun again the work of remaking America. We’ve laid a new foundation.” – Barrack Hussein Obama, January 20th 2015
If you are like the overwhelming majority of Americans who refused to waterboard themselves by watching or listening to the Soviet Party Speech given last night at a joint session of the politburo – eerrr….Congress, you missed nothing that your discernment and imagination already told you Obama’s speech would likely be.
It was a given His Heinous would channel Fidel Castro while sounding like Santa Claus and display the pompous arrogance of Benito Mussolini on crack with none-too-subtle threats for any opponents of his agenda. There was only one single surprise, that came at the very end of his vomitous bilge. That surprise being an admission that most will refuse to believe he actually said or meant.
You see, the only thing that matters in the entire “State of the Union speech” which was really just a neo-Nuremburg Rally from a teleprompter for the Obama Party – was that Dear Leader actually told the truth at the very end at the second-to-last paragraph that he read aloud.
He stated openly that he was remaking America, and had laid a “new” foundation for the country. A foundation intended to replace the Constitutional Foundation the Founding Fathers established and bequeathed to this nation. And like trained clapping seals, the entire Congress applauded that outright boldy-stated treason. For the oath to the Constitution Obama had sword to uphold, was admittedly broken by his own admission that he has replaced our existing foundation with this ‘new one’. Not to mention harboring an Illegal Alien that he flaunted in front of the nation so as to demonstrate his being above any laws he does not decree himself.
In that admission, after ninety minutes of ridiculous out-of-this-galaxy Bovine Excrement and Barbara Streisand, Obama finally told the truth of what he has done and is doing.
Obama just told us that he has replaced our Constitutional foundation for the purpose of REMAKING America. Never has there been such an in-our-face-moment of treason in our nation’s history . However, the stupidity, lukewarmness and ignorance of a majority of Americans makes lawlessness and treason from the highest office in the land, non-existent unless you are a Conservative Tea Party person that must be considered evil and dangerous for nothing more than demanding those governing us be restrained by the law they swore to uphold.
Not even the Soviets could have dreamed of conquering us in complete totality as Obama just demonstrated he has done. Admitted to the whole world that the nation is being remade with a new foundation instead of the one we had for 238 years, and an entire nation being sold into despotism, is absolutely clueless to what just happened to it.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: – II Thessalonians 2:11
And to quote cultural entertainment for a prophetic quip that sadly, can be carved onto the tombstones of every Republic that came into existence (including our former Republic):
It is become beyond dispute that we are being subjugated by a lawless Federal tyranny that we seem powerless to stop.
Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. – Declaration of Independence
Part 1: Federal Lawlessness Gives Rise To A Beast
Lawless. That is what the U.S. Government has officially become under the Obama regime. That is not to say that there has not been lawlessness in government until Obama, there has been plenty. The difference is that until 2009 – lawlessness and corruption was never institutionalized. Today it is standard practice at all levels of the federal government, making it the status quo in the highest offices in the land.
This is the core of what Obama really intended with “Fundamental Transformation”
Under his direction and with the assistance of the Ruling Class of both parties, the Federal Government is now a law and power unto itself. The Executive makes laws by decree and empowered unaccountable bureaucrats with law-making ability that according the Constitution is reserved for Congress alone. Such bureaucrats and ‘czars’ now make policy designed to punish, rob and enslave peoples and their property to the whims and dictates of the state without public recourse. Lawlessness that is ignored, excused and said to be ‘necessary’, given lawful legal status via ‘precedent’.
The Congress itself has surrendered almost all it’s power via the Ruling Class in both parties to the Executive Branch, refusing to hold Obama’s regime accountable for clear violations of the Constitution while granting the Executive authority ascribed for Congress alone. From declaring and waging war to ceding it’s taxing and spending power to Obama – the Ruling Class in Congress have abdicated their Constitutional duty. This has enabled a defacto dictatorship that most Americans pretend does not exist.
The 10th Amendment is wholly ignored while courts tell states they have no standing in Federal matters to enforce laws the Obama regime has made policy to ignore. Precedent is now the mechanism upon which rulings are handed down, and policies enacted rather than examination of each through the prism of the Constitution.
This is a candid fact: law in America now is arbitrary, determined to be whatever those in power decree it to be while exempting themselves from those very same laws.
And don’t look to the courts for protection and sanction against a corrupt and totalitarian state – they are part and parcel of foisting it upon us all.
Consider, actual laws passed by the majority of the people in the States are being decreed null and void by an Activist Judiciary and Just-Us Department pushing various agendas from homosexuality, Racial minority preference policies to South American insurgent amnesty. What the voters overwhelming pass via referendum and ballot is overturned and declared a ‘violation of the Constitution’ usually via pretzel twists of logic to justify.
There is a mountain of evidence in our faces that the current federal government is corrupt beyond measure and no longer bound by the rule of law in a civil society as established by our Founders. Indeed it is a doctrine on the Left and often cited by the MarxoFascist politicians in power – that a document written by dead people should have no bearing on the living. This is the actual intent they mean by the term ‘Living Constitution”. It should be ignored, changed or abolished on whatever whim is decided by those in power when it is decreed to be a benefit to “the people” because government should not be “held hostage by a bunch of dead white racist slave-owners”.
And such is the blueprint for totalitarian tyranny and oppression. The kind one finds in Socialist utopias like North Korea and Cuba,
Such is not a Republic. Such is a vile meddlesome “progressive” tyranny of the likes not even the Founders suffered.
The fact is friend, we are a society no longer governed by moral law, but ruled by the tyranny of wicked, unprincipled men that mirrors the basest of society that affords them their seats of power for a promise and a bribe.
The reason for this is that a majority of the American people are no longer governed by God. They pay Him lip service at best and perhaps warm a seat for an hour or two once-a-week, but no longer are living by and promoting His Moral Laws and Authority as Supreme. Churches are shrinking and a growing majority of Americans now claim they are ‘spiritual’ rather than beholden to biblical foundations. The zeitgeist promoted by the media and entertainment is that Government is now god; the arbiter of morality and fairness. In this devolution of society, the federal beast became self-aware of it’s need to dominate all life and behavior in the country and is acting on that inherent desire to rule.
Such a government is a blasphemy to a Biblically-adherent people, and it’s institutionalized corruption and promotion of wickedness renders it illegitimate.
There are many candid facts in recent news that make the illegitimacy of this government self-evident. I’ll cite just two, but I am certain you would be able to find myriad such examples to illustrate the fact that the current federal government in Washington D.C. has no legitimate moral authority over a people it now rules rather than represents.
The greatest illustration of the fact the federal government is now lawless, can be seen by the IRS scandal whereby the Executive and his party used the agency to intimidate, harass and punish Americans who are considered to be political opponents of Obama and his party.
The most feared federal agency in the United States is the IRS, which has the power to seize everything you own and every thing your posterity will ever own, including rendering you to prison – where you are guilty until proving your innocence in tax court. Most Americans comply with the IRS out of fear, not out of respect. A real and present danger is that we are growing complacent by the precedent of the IRS being used as a political weapon at the same time it absolves itself from the same requirements mandated upon the citizenry.
In a Congressional investigation of the abuses at the IRS, the agency’s heads not only asserted that they are above the law, but insinuated that the law is not applicable to them. When hard drives were demanded, they asserted the drives were ‘damaged’ and the e-mail evidence sought by Investigators, “lost”, negating to report the “loss” in violation of the Federal Records Act since that evidence was under subpoena.
You would think that such a government agency would maintain it’s integrity to the law so as to affect voluntary compliance with the law. We might say that if the IRS no longer follows the law and instead follows a policy to punish political enemies of Obama and the Democrats, why should you or I follow the law they are in charge of enforcing???
The answer to that is because ‘voluntary’ is no longer a consideration. ‘FORCED COMPLIANCE’ is the intent and as such, laws are arbitrary and irrelevant in carrying out an agenda.
According to the IRS director himself, the IRS is no longer bound by the laws that bind you and I. He stated before a Congressional hearing that “Wherever [they] can, we follow the law” in reference to the fact it had violated the law and inferring the IRS can choose not to follow the law if it deems it imprudent.
The implication is that it is simply impossible for a federal agency to follow the law, yet the IRS is authorized to punish any citizen who violates tax law, knowingly or unknowingly.
Now perhaps you might begin to understand why a lawless regime and party put the IRS in charge of mandating compliance with ObamaCare.
This is just the IRS scandal. What about federal agencies that are now tasked with implementing Obama’s ideological agenda rather than upholding the law?
EPA Abolishment of your rights.
The IRS is not the only Federal agency run by the Executive that has been used by Obama as a weapon.
Here’s another Federal agency, unaccountable to the American people, defying laws and being used as a weapon to harass and intimidate political opponents, chosen objects for policy implementation and a vehicle to strip away your right to property without compensation or recourse.
In a move lawmakers and farmers are calling “the biggest land grab in the history of the world,” the Environmental Protection Agency is requesting jurisdiction over all public and private streams in the United States that are “intermittent, seasonal and rain-dependent.” Control all the water, you control all life. That it seems is the agenda and the intent under the guise of ‘environmental justice’.
Your Constitutional Right to be secure in your property, or to be fairly compensated monetarily for it – no longer applies, because EPA policy trumps the Constitution. I’m not even listing all the recent news about the EPA following Obama’s dictates to shut down electricity plants and coal mines with regulations and requirements so ridiculous that it is obvious to any honest observer that the intent is to destroy the people’s access to affordable electricity. But a mechanism without public oversight or recourse to strip from you, your property and it’s use over ‘water rights’ is no different than if your property was just seized from you at gunpoint because the government decided the tax revenue of your property in the hands of developers is worth more money to them. Oh wait, that’s a real deal too.
These are just two citations of two federal government entities that do not respect or follow the Supreme Law of the Land, and are being used to impose overt tyranny upon us. I could write a blog that would encompass a volume of such instances – but these two illustrate with perfect clarity – that the federal government is completely and totally lawless, implementing tyranny disguised as law. Imposing it in such a way as to be accepted without resistance by a people they seek to rule, and not represent.
Obama has said strategically: “The government is us”. For all the claims of Obama being inept, this statement alone reveals the ingenious mindset of imposing a tyranny.
The insidious purpose of this statement is to equate liberty with government. On one side of his face Obama says tyranny of government is impossible because the government “is us”. Creating the illusion that your neighbors support what is being done to you and it is for your own good. The statement is intended for all to accept the belief that the bigger and more intrusive the government (defined as ‘success’), the more liberty you will have. Any failings or misery are because of the people who will not support the government’s rule and imposition of it’s will, not that government itself is ever to blame. History teaches that despotic leaders use this technique to great effect; creating the illusion that all powerful government is freedom and that the majority WANTS the tyranny being imposed. The acceptance of that mindset is how Beasts of oppression are able to operate without fear of those they intend to subjugate.
The technique is to get the people to believe is that what is being done by government is of the people and therefore everything they do, legitimate.
Even when the government trods upon the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.
Since the Federal Government has made it policy to trod upon those things, I declare they no longer have any legitimate moral authority over a people who are beholden to the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.
So what to do? What is our recourse? Do we submit and kneel to this? Do we do as Europeans and accept tyranny and corruption as the ‘new normal’? Do we throw up our hands and say “Oh well” consigning our posterity to a lifetime of misery? Do we embrace it and hope to get a parcel of redistributed wealth, property and provision? Do we revolt? How do we revolt? Do we just take to the streets and sow mayhem like we saw in Ferguson, MO??
No. None of the above.
The amazing thing is that most Americans have become totally ignorant of their history and the answer to what we should do now is contained there.
Scripture tells us in Hosea 4:6 –
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
First we must understand out history and the mindset our Founders once had; a mindset they possessed because their main source of knowledge was the bible, followed by the understanding of history and human nature.
The first battle to be won in any war is of and for the mind. We have to come to an understanding and consensus of agreement that leads directly into courses of action We The People are able and willing and justified to take if we want any hope of holding onto what is left of our liberty.
The U.S. Government is now a Beast, promoting evil, punishing the righteous it hates and declaring war on the people. Do we sit idle and allow ourselves to be subjugated?
The seething rage of Christian and liberty-minded Americans is now boiling. The outrageous testimony of John Koskinen, director of the IRS last week sealed it for me. He essentially declared that the laws they impose on the people, the government is exempt from following. You have an admission that the government can punish those it chooses with impunity. His testimony – ( and the entire IRS scandal) is as pure and raw a declaration of tyranny as any ever uttered by a public official upon those this regime has publicly declared are their enemies.
The evidence of what is being prepared against us is overwhelming. – What more proof do we need to understand that something MUST be done?
Do we submit and surrender to this despotism, or do we fight back? And if we fight back HOW?
I contend based on history and human nature that you cannot stop tyranny and tyrants by civil means. PERIOD. The plea we can ‘just vote for more Republicans’ is as absurd and it is stupid.
The entire election process is as corrupted as the IRS and other agencies of the government. The GOP is as complicit as the Democrat MarxoFascists for imposing and supporting this tyranny upon us and what is at work right now is the silencing and rendering into irrelevance, the voice of Conservative Americans.
This commentary from Francis W. Porretto at Liberty’s Torch makes a case that we all must acknowledge. After the essay – I have my own thoughts to post below the article about WHAT THE HELL DO WE DO ABOUT IT?
Good morning, Gentle Reader. Have you been disturbed by the most recent news? Thinking that things really aren’t as bad as that, because they’re actually worse? Wondering if you’ll ever manage to unravel that knot in your stomach short of hauling stakes and “going Galt?”
If the above applies to you, turn off the television — those patent medicines won’t do a damn thing for you and you know it — and address this most important question with me:
What the hell are we going to do about it?
I’ve been perched at the edge of outrage for some time, but then, I’m a freedom weenie, and a hard-core one at that: the sort that believes passionately in individuals’ God-given rights to their lives, liberty, and honestly acquired property; that believes that the Constitution means exactly what it says, with neither “penumbras” nor “emanations” nor bits written in invisible ink; that believes that for a federal official to defy the Constitution is an act of treason punishable by death. Some of Liberty’s Torch’s devotees are similarly inclined, but not all. Why, my vast and frighteningly efficient intelligence apparatus tells me that there are even one or two liberals who read this rag…probably for the humor pieces, though they might disagree about which ones those are.
But left, right, or center, pacifically inclined or maximally belligerent, if you’ve been keeping up with the news anddon’t feel as if it’s time to lock and load, check your pulse: you may have died and not noticed.
War has been declared against us.
Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor changed a lot of thinking about modern warfare. One of the agreements implicit in the Westphalian system of nation-states was that wars would be conducted by sovereignties against other sovereignties, and with prior notice: open, formal declarations of war conveyed from one to the other through diplomatic channels. The unheralded attack on America’s naval base was shocking not merely for its devastation, but because every significant military conflict for more than two hundred years had been preceded by a prior declaration of war.
Contemporary thought on such matters downplays the formal declaration of war, by reason of the importance of the first strike in a time of intercontinental ballistic missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. The whole development is massively unfortunate, and not merely because weapons of mass destruction make it likely that a major war will rack up a Biblical body count. A formal declaration of war makes explicit who will be fighting with whom; therefore, any parties not named are omitted from the festivities, and — in theory at least — can sit back and pass the popcorn. In the absence of such a declaration, no one can relax; once the lead starts to fly, every nation on Earth, and all of Mankind, are potentially at risk.
The best we can do today, if we’d like some assurance that our carcasses won’t be among the ones dragged away by the bulldozers, is to assess the available data continuously, as carefully and critically as possible. So let’s have a look at some of the most recent developments in that light.
In broad daylight, with no fear of being seen, a group of Honduran girls — some as young as 14 — cross illegally into the United States.”Because I want to see my parents in Austin,” one tells CNN.
Moments later, another group of Hondurans admits crossing the Rio Grande to get here, McAllen station, a border crossing into the United States. “Thank God nothing happened,” they say of the perilous journey.
This group quickly grows to 22. Most are children who traveled without any adults.
Unlike other stories of illegal immigration across a porous border, these immigrants aren’t sneaking in. They’re showing up and announcing themselves.
“We are seeing hundreds turning themselves in daily. And I mean hundreds at a time,” said Chris Cabrera, a leader of the local chapter of the National Border Patrol Council, a labor union representing U.S. Border Patrol agents.
Many of the immigrants use rafts to cross the Rio Grande, equipped with instructions to follow the river until reaching the Border Patrol site to surrender.
“They know that once they get to the station, we are going to give them paperwork and we are going to set them free into the United States,” Cabrera says.
U.S. law prohibits the Department of Homeland Security from immediately deporting the children if they are not from Canada or Mexico. Instead, the children are turned over to Department Health and Human Services supervision “within 72 hours of DHS taking them into custody,” an official said.
“Most of the time, they’re getting released to relatives in the U.S.,” Cabrera said. “There’s nowhere to put them, so they’re released on their own recognizance and have a pending court date. I’d say between 95 and 97% of adults or youths don’t show up for court.”
The numbers are staggering. He estimates that more than 60,000 unaccompanied juveniles will cross in 2014 and that the numbers will rise from there.
This is the direct, easily foreseen consequence of the Obama Administration’s non-enforcement of our border, coupled to its refusal to deport illegal aliens who are minors under our standards. But note that these children are predominantly not Mexican; they’re from Central American countries south of Mexico, and therefore crossed the entire length of that nation to reach the United States. How?
There is only one plausible answer: their travel here was facilitated by persons with the necessary means, confident that when they’d finally crossed into the U.S., they would be permitted to stay. More, it’s impossible that the Administration is unaware of this. Resourceless minors do not traverse a thousand miles of hostile territory on their own initiative, nor without experiencing tragedy.
Surely none of this is surprising to you. If there’s any surprise to be had from it, it’s that the popular reaction against it has been so muted. But the salient point is this: Given the Administration’s openness about the relevant policies, the consequences were easy to foresee. Therefore we must conclude that those consequences, and their devastating effects upon the border states where Obama is so unpopular, were what the Administration wanted.
Next up we have yesterday’s fusillades in the House of Representatives:
I cannot remember an exchange between an appointed Cabinet official and an elected federal legislator that’s remotely comparable to these. Commissioner Koskinen’s arrogance and defiance are unprecedented. He appears unconcerned with what might follow his open refusal to cooperate with the investigation, the most important such since Teapot Dome. No appointee concerned with his tenure in his position would exhibit such an attitude except after having secured assurance of protection against any significant penalty. Such protection could only issue from higher up in the Administration: specifically, from the White House.
The politicization of the Internal Revenue Service, which has extraordinary powers over American citizens, is a far graver matter than corruption of specific individuals. It sets the most feared and fearsome agency of the federal government at war with the citizenry. Indeed, given its routine guilty-until-proven-innocent practices, under which it may seize a citizen’s assets on arbitrary charges, thus denying him the resources required to defend himself against them, even members of Congress must feel a tremor or two at the thought of openly going up against the IRS. That’s why the charge in the bill of particulars against Richard Nixon that data from the IRS was provided to the White House to be used against Nixon’s enemies was so serious.
Despite the implications for the further use of the IRS as a weapon against anyone it chooses to target, the Administration is just fine with it. They want us to know…and to fear.
Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales.Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories.
“This administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent ‘reputational risk’ to do business with,” said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP. “So financial institutions are reacting to this extraordinary enforcement arsenal by being ultra-conservative in who they do business with: Any companies that engage in any margin of risk as defined by this administration are being dropped.”…
“We’re being threatened with a regulatory regime that attempts to foist on us the obligation to monitor all types of transactions,” Richard Riese, a senior vice president at the American Bankers Association, said in the April 28 issue of American Banker. “All of this is predicated on a notion that the banks are a choke point for all businesses.”
In an interview with The Times, Mr. Riese said the cost of doing business with gun retailers outweighs the benefits for some banks, given that regulators deem the industry as “risky,” state laws vary on the sale of guns and ammunition, and the Justice Department’s enforcement.
A regulatory process is being used, without statutory authority and outside all possibility of correction by judicial action, against institutions disfavored by the Obamunist regime. FDIC’s authority to audit and scrutinize financial institutions chartered under its auspices is largely noncontroversial. The desirability of the FDIC’s insurance provisions being as high as it is, few (if any) American banks exist outside that orbit. Thus, the weight of regulatory scrutiny can inhibit banks from making credit available to any business the regime wants to discourage: a perfect weapon to use against gun rights, which have been increasingly successful in the federal courts.
A military strategist will tell you: your first strike should always be aimed at the enemy’s weaponry. Once you have denied him the power to harm you, your plan of conquest can proceed in confidence.
Is there any other way to interpret the above strikes on the American firearms industry — at this time, one of the few unabashedly profitable and growing sectors of American enterprise?
War has been declared against us, the American people. The declarer is the federal government. Indeed, many state governments are its tacit allies. Several declarations are presented above; there are many more of subtler impact.
So whatcha gonna do about it, tough guy? Not one damned thing, that’s what. The entire rotten edifice of American government is rife with this sort of thing. Opportunities for amoral corruption is what government is; it’s what it does. Government is little more than a jobs program for incompetent, greedy bums who could never survive in a competitive, free-market environment…which is just one of many reasons to keep it small, under close supervision and tight restriction.What we have now is very nearly the precise opposite of what the Founders envisioned. This is but a small representation of that essential, inescapable truth.
The war has been declared. The battle lines are sharp and bright. No American can call himself a noncombatant; no American can be confident that he’s off the battlefield. And there’s absolutely nowhere to flee.
Will we surrender meekly, or will we stand and fight?
So what do we do? March on Washington armed to show them we mean business?
STUPID. Don’t even think about that. It would be a slaughter and it would give the justification for what this regime already intends to do to us. We do NOT give them the justification.
So do we just bend over and take it? Throw up our arms and submit to The Beast?
But for those of us who understand history, who have a faith in the scriptures and Jesus Christ – we already have an answer.
FIRST: THE LAW OF GOD IS SUPREME. God Is Sovereign, above the laws of men – and His Commandments and Laws are our first loyalty as Believers. Our Liberties come from this truth. Our freedoms are rooted in the fact our government was established ONLY for the purpose of protecting our right to follow God as He leads us.
SECOND: Civil magistrates and government is only empowered to rule in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
THREE: Once civil government contravenes the Word of God, or becomes destructive to the civil society and laws laid down to UPHOLD liberty – then the government ceases to have any legitimacy. Indeed our own Declaration of Independence makes this truth plain:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…
…A (government) whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
So what do we do?
The model that God blessed is already before us in our own history.
FIRST – we repent of our own sins, shortcoming and lukewarm attitude about our faith. Keeping God in a box at church that we only open once a week is nothing less than a dereliction of your calling as a Christian.
SECOND – We recognize that this federal government no longer has any legitimate authority over us. It is ILLEGITIMATE. It has abandoned any pretense of justice and righteousness. It is become nothing but a Beast who demands we put it’s ‘mark’ in our thoughts and actions. It contravenes the laws of God and is rewriting morality to make God’s Laws an evil – while declaring abominations – good.
THIRD – We refuse, we defy and we RESIST complying with it. It has no authority over us. All it has is the end of a gun to force us to submit.
For when a righteous people who have God as their Sovereign REFUSING to comply with a tyranny – the tyrant always yanks off the mask of it’s legitimacy and right to rule. It will use terror and force in order to press compliance – and in doing so – reveals itself to be the evil and tyranny that a Christian people MAY NOT SUBMIT TO. For in accords with our Founders – submitting to tyranny is BREAKING the First Commandment. For a tyranny will not suffer any rival of allegiance and such tyrannies of men are deemed to be gods over men.
Do not take the mark of this beast. Refuse. Defy. And when they come to force themselves upon you, to punish and destroy you – you will not have any doubts as to what you should do.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ― The Gulag Archipelago Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
He is seen as the harbinger for the coming Islamic Mahdi. From Egypt, to Yemen, to Libya, to Iraq – Obama lends his hand to establishing a global Islamic Caliphate.
While Conservative Christians reel with the onslaught of daily attacks on our liberties while Obama rules by executive decree, there was an offhand comment made by an Obama DHS appointee that has gone nearly unnoticed by the alternative media. In a week we were told that amnesty for Mexican insurgents and illegals is ‘inevitable’ – so also we are told that an Islamic Caliphate is ‘inevitable’, at the same exact time that Iraq is falling to Al Qaeda Jihadists.
Welcome to ‘fundamental transformation’.
Back in 2009. I wrote a warning essay about how the Islamic world was viewing Obama after his Cairo speech and reading the signals he clearly sent to them.
Americans have by and large decided to ignore these fruits, cognitive dissonance to an extreme – refusing to acknowledge the fact that Obama is a Trojan horse for our enemies and is working towards our destruction while the evidence is right in front of our faces.
Now, because Obama is the defacto dictator, he has dropped many pretenses and masks about his intents and plans. Which is how and why one of his advisors is stating that the return of the Islamic Caliphate is now ‘inevitable’. Thanks in large part to Obama himself.
As ISIS rolls through Iraq vowing to re-establish the global Caliphate, an appointee of President Obama is telling us that the return of the Caliphate is “Inevitable.” John Rossomando reports for the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
A member of President Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council known for controversial Twitter posts that seem to support the Muslim Brotherhood wrote Friday that it is “inevitable that ‘Caliphate’ returns.”
Qutb believed that if the Caliphate – abolished in 1924 – ever were to be re-established, that a vanguard would need to replace the regime of one country with an Islamic state
Baghdad, the object of the current ISIS offensive, was, Rossomondo reminds us, the capital of the Assabid Caliphate from 762 until 1258. In the Muslim world, memories of the Caliphate are highly potent.
Now, here’s a great connect-the-dots essay that chronicles all of Obama’s actions with what is actually taking shape by Obama’s design.
It is not hard to understand why our Dear Leader wanted Dinesh D’Souza in jail and came at him with the full force of the Justice Department. A so-called routine review of his campaign donations unearthed an irregularity, and Mr. D’Souza was prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Who has their campaign contributions routinely reviewed anyway? Perhaps if he had been an illegal immigrant, or a Democratic operative like Jon Corzine, his crimes would have been overlooked. But he was neither and is now convicted. However, in President Obama’s eyes, Mr. D’Souza’s real crime was not illegally funneling money to Republican politicians–it was exposing the President’s dark agenda. For you see that in D’Souza’s movie, 2016: Obama’s America, he exposed for the world to see that Obama wanted to create a Muslim Jihadist caliphate across North Africa and the Middle East. For this, D’Souza had to be prosecuted.
Many on the Left laughed at D’Souza’s claims. Even many on the Right thought he was a little “out there.” But as I have written on these pages many times, the results speak for themselves, no matter what you believe about President Obama. If you are intellectually honest, I don’t believe you can look at the evidence and come to any other conclusion but that D’Souza was right.
So let’s take a look at the evidence. First, let’s start with the so-called Arab Spring. Here, you had a chain reaction of events where dictatorial leaders across the Muslim world were violently thrown out of positions of control. However, if you examine these events with a critical eye, what you see is that strongmen had held in check Sunni Muslim jihadists with a boot on their neck for decades. When this restraint was removed, the Muslim Brotherhood and other similar groups came to power. In Egypt, for example, after Mubarak’s ouster, there began a march towards Sharia Law. Why do you think the U.S. government was so angry when the Egyptian military threw the Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi out of office, put him in jail, and outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood across the country? Is there any other explanation except that Obama wanted the Brotherhood in control?
In Libya, the strongman Gaddafi was removed from power and killed in a movement backed by NATO forces in 2011. In the ensuing power vacuum, Islamic jihadist extremist elements are filling the void. In fact, once again, the military has launched operations against these Al Qaeda-backed forces to remove them from the country. Why do you think we really don’t know what happened in Benghazi? Why do you think this administration is going to such lengths to cover up how four American’s died? In Hillary’s words, “What difference does it make?” I think if the truth ever comes out, we will find that America was supporting jihadists in the country to allow them to rise to power, in spite of their terrorist links. Obama cannot let this get out.
In Iran, we have well-documented evidence that the Obama administration has been hellbent on allowing Iran to acquire nuclear weapons. Yes, they are a Sharia state, which historically have been at odds with the Sunni majority in the Muslim world. However, I believe that if the Islamic community sees the opportunity to create a pan-Asian Islamic caliphate, as they obviously do, they will put aside their differences. What will be the consequences to Israel and the United States when Iran has the bomb? Obama’s animosity to the security concerns of the Jewish State are well documented.
In Syria, Obama was begging for a reason not to attack the Assad regime after they used chemical weapons against their own citizens, deciding to desperately accept a Russian-backed deal that would force Assad to destroy his chemical stockpiles. Well, that was a year ago; and Assad has used chemical weapons fourteen times since against the opposition.
In Iraq, we have seen the Islamic State in Iraq (ISIS) defeat and occupy the northern cities on its march to Baghdad. Why do you think the Obama administration was so intent to remove American forces from the region? “See you in New York,” was a recent comment from a terrorist commander in-country as they beheaded thousands of Iraqis that worked with the Americans to defeat the jihadists under President Bush. Sunni fighters now control an area from Syria to the border of Iran, creating a terrorist state in the Middle East that will be much more dangerous than Afghanistan ever was. And now, we see the American presence being removed from that country as well.
In Turkey, Obama initially established a warm relationship with Islamist Prime Minister Ergodan until reports of his supporting Al Qaeda elements crossing Turkish territory back and forth from Europe to Syria forced Obama to publicly cool the relationship. Read that again. Obama supported a Turkish leader who allowed terrorists to travel from Syria to Europe through Turkish territory. Turkey is a member of NATO. Shocking.
As I have written before on these pages, the Obama administration’s agenda is not the buttressing of American power and ideals in the Middle East. It is about creating an environment where Muslim countries can install religious governments to create a Islamic caliphate across the Middle East and South Asia. The evidence of results on the ground as we look at it today is just too obvious. Enjoy the show, folks; you’re watching history. The Ottoman Empire is being reborn under our noses and is supported by our own government. I fear for our children’s future.
President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate.
At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.
“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.
The Founding Fathers decided in the “Great Compromise” in 1787 to apportion House seats based on population and give each state two seats in the Senate regardless of population. The solution was a compromise between large states and small states in a dispute that nearly dissolved the Constitutional Convention.
The president also blamed “demographics” for the inability of the Democratic Party to gain more power in Congress, saying Democrats “tend to congregate a little more densely” in cities such as New York and Chicago. He said it gives Republicans disproportional clout in Congress.
“So there are some structural reasons why, despite the fact that Republican ideas are largely rejected by the public, it’s still hard for us to break through,” Mr. Obama said.
He also said Democrats suffer from the “congenital disease” of not voting in midterm elections.
A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.
If, for instance, one mentions the historical fact that nearly every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist, to include his own parents, then one is immediately mocked and dismissed as a neo-McCarthyite hack pining for the bygone days of the Red Scare. This is an evasive, ad hominem strategy employed by those who are caught, for lack of a better word, red-handed.
To all this I say, if the jackboot fits, wear it. If it quacks like a commie and goose-steps like a commie, then a commie it is.
There are multiple layers within “progressivism’s” pseudo-utopian, truly dystopian Marxist philosophy. The left’s lust for redistributionist statism is well-known. Less understood, however, is the “progressive” rush toward cultural Marxism.
Cultural Marxism entails, among other things, that secularist aspect of left-wing statist ideology that seeks, within society, to supplant traditional values, norms and mores with postmodern moral relativism. Cultural Marxists endeavor to scrub America of her Judeo-Christian, constitutional-republican founding principles, and take, instead, a secular-statist Sharpie to our beloved U.S. Constitution.
Historian and U.S. military affairs expert William S. Lind describes cultural Marxism as “a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as ‘multiculturalism’ or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as ‘multiculturalism.’”
Pastor, attorney and Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively is globally admired by liberty-loving traditionalists. Conversely, he’s universally reviled by cultural Marxists. He drills down a bit deeper: “Cultural Marxism is a variation of the Marxist strategy to build a utopian socialist order on the ashes of Christian civilization, but through subversion of the moral culture, especially the elimination of the natural family, rather than solely through destruction of capitalism.”
True though this may be, the ideological seeds of contemporary cultural Marxism nonetheless sprout from deep within the dead soil of historical communism. It is not economic redistributionism alone through which “progressives” seek to both “fundamentally transform America” and otherwise conquer the world, but, rather, and perhaps primarily, it is also through victory over the pejoratively tagged “social issues” (i.e., the sanctity of marriage, natural human sexuality and morality, ending the abortion holocaust, religious liberty, the Second Amendment and the like).
This is neither speculative nor hyperbolic. Both the historical record and the U.S. Congressional Record bear out this sinister reality. Regrettably, today’s “low-information voters” as Rush Limbaugh calls them – to include the useful idiots within the GOP’s “moderate” and libertarian wings – are simply too lazy, shortsighted or both to learn the facts.
“Surrender on the ‘social issues’!” demands the GOP’s cultural Marxist-enabling kamikazes.
In 1963, U.S. Rep. A.S. Herlong Jr., D-Fla., read into the Congressional Record a list of “Current Communist Goals” as enumerated by Dr. Cleon Skousen in “The Naked Communist,” penned in 1958. I encourage you to read the whole list, but for now let’s focus on those goals that most closely align with the seditious agenda of America’s “progressive” movement. It’s actually most of them. Though Herlong was a Democrat, the list reads like today’s Democratic Party Platform.
How far has fallen the party of the jackass:
Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist [or, today, Islamic] affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist [or Islamic] domination.
Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
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.
Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
Do away with all loyalty oaths.
Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
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.”)
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
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.”
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principal of “separation of church and state.”
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.
Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
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.”
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 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.
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.
Internationalize the Panama Canal.
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.
If achieving these specific communist goals was the final “progressive” step toward the larger goal of securing communist governance in America, then, tragically, “progressives” have realized that larger goal.
Look around. We are no longer the United States of America. We have become The Communist States of America.
Which means, for those who love liberty, revolution is once again at hand.
Given what is going on in China lately I have been nearly obsessed learning about China’s history. It is easily one of the most interesting cultures on Earth with thousands of years of dynasties, warlords, communism, capitalism, wars and atrocities.
Of all the atrocities the worst, by far, was committed during Mao’s Communist China revolution and the typically Orwellian named, “The Great Leap Forward”.
That leap eventually ended up with the deaths and starvation of somewhere between 20 and 45 million people. Despite this devastation, American oligarch David Rockefeller said this of the period: “Whatever the price of the Chinese revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.”
As I watched a recent documentary on this period it struck me how eerily similar the early years of Mao, leading to those deaths, were to today’s USA and Obama.
Hope and Change. As with Obama, Mao was swept into power under great fanfare as a savior by a society of people who had been so impoverished and wartorn to put their faith in this man with his ideas. As with Obama the first few years didn’t go too terribly giving some people hope. But, soon after taking power, in 1950, he quickly got China involved in the Korean War.
Land Reform. During that same period Mao went to work on taking away land from landowners and “giving it to the people”. Done differently, but with the same end goal, the US has been decimating small farmowners through regulations, taxes and even armed raids ending up with large corporations owning more and more of the productive land. The large corporations, through the US blend of fascism and socialism, end up owning more and more of the land. According to the US Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today. According to Farm Aid, every week approximately 330 farmers leave their land for good. This isn’t done as overtly as it was during Mao’s time of just killing landowners as the US government has perfected propaganda but the end result is essentially the same.
Suicides. In Shanghai during this time, suicide by jumping from tall buildings became so commonplace that residents avoided walking on the pavement near skyscrapers for fear that suicides might land on them. In the US today, even the New Yorker writes about the “suicide epidemic”. Between 1999 and 2010 the number of Americans between the ages of thirty-five and sixty-four who took their own lives rose by almost thirty per cent. Among young people in the US, suicide is the third most common cause of death; among all Americans, suicide claims more lives than car accidents, which were previously the leading cause of injury-related death.
Media Suppression and Targeting. Mao launched the “Hundred Flowers Campaign” urging all those with different opinions to express themselves. It was a ruse, however, and he used this to target opponents eventually killing 500,000 landowners. In the US it is done differently but groups, like the Tea Party, have been targetted by the IRS for having oppossing views. And it is well known in the mainstream media that you cannot speak out against the current regime. Journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye was imprisoned under Obama’s orders for speaking out about US involvement in the Middle East. And, currently, according to Reporters Without Borders, the US stands at #46 on the World Press Freedom Index just after Romania and one ahead of Haiti.
Only Those In Government Prospered. During Mao’s time it was said that only those in government and those in the capital cities connected to the government prospered. This is very similar to what is happening today in the US. Government workers currently get paid 45% more than their counterparts in the private market. And, while most of the country languishes in depression level conditions, Washington D.C. is flourishing. The Washington metro area includes a whopping six of the 10 most affluent counties in the nation.
Lies And Statistics. As things got worse in Mao’s China the government took to overtly lying about nearly every statistic. They lied egregiously about crop production and the amount of deaths by starvation. Doctors were not allowed to list “starvation” as a cause of death. In the US it is similar in that nearly all government statistics are heavily manipulated to paint a better picture of what is really going on. Unemployment figures, for one, are adjusted so that if people give up looking for work they are not counted as being “unemployed” anymore. The US government currently says that the current rate of unemployment is 7.3%. However, the percentage of the population which is employed is at lows not seen in 40 years. And, just by computing the unemployment numbers the way they were computed prior to 1994 (before they took out “long term discouraged workers” from the figures) as computed by Shadowstats.com, shows an unemployment rate of 23%.
Famine and Starvation. As things got worse, by the end of the 1950s, tens of millions of Chinese died of starvation. The US has much more past wealth to live upon and still has the printing of the US dollar to keep things more afloat temporarily but even with these advantages there are now 1 in 6 Americans on food stamps… and 1 in 4 children in the US on food stamps. In other words, already, a very large percentage of the population cannot even afford food to eat without assistance. Without government assistance, they would starve.
It should be said that China in the mid 20th century and the US in the early 21st century are two very different places. China, at that time, was a very poor and backward place. Whereas the US, due to semi-free markets for past centuries, is incredibly advanced and has built up a lot of wealth.
As well, communication technologies such as the internet do not allow most government’s today to wholesale slaughter people. In the US today these same goals are undertaken through fines, taxation, regulation, inflation and criminalizing nearly every human activity. Nearly half of all people under the age of 23 in the US today have been arrested and the US has the world’s largest prison population with 25% of the prisoners with only 5% of the world population. Through these means the US government can look to be less heinous than outright murdering thousands or millions of people but essentially with the same results.
Because of these differences we should not expect to see the US follow the exact same path of Mao’s China. But the similarities of the two times are striking.
We have published this cartoon from the Chicago Tribune in 1934 on numerous occassions because it so perfectly explains what is going on in the US today.
Spend! Spend! Spend! The US government has been spending and going into deficits at rates that would have shocked people even 15 years ago. The debt of the US government has increased $6.666 trillion since President Barack Obama took office. When Obama was first inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt of the U.S. government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt. As of Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61—an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53. The total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003. In the little more than five years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in it’s first 227 years.
Blame The Capitalists. Fomenting a class war the heavily socialist indoctrinated youth and poor are constantly told it is “greedy corporations” causing their problems. This can be seen clearly in all the recent “minimum wage” rhetoric.
Junk The Constitution. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been all but ransacked in recent years… specifically since 9/11 and the Patriot Act. People collecting rain water or building a pond on their own property or living sustainably off the grid have been deluged by federal agencies threatening them with massive fines or jail time. And, the rising police state and the endless accounts of police brutality is just another example of this.
Declare a Dictatorship. Barack Obama continues to wage wars without approval from Congress, issue Executive Order edicts, create kill lists and in his most recent State of the Union address even went so far as to say that he was going to go around Congress to get things done… all to wild applause. That is a dictatorship.
THE FALL OF AMERICA
Those plans, as laid out in the Chicago Tribune cartoon from 1934 are falling exactly into place. That, combined with the fact that Barack Obama’s US is following a very similar path to Mao’s China should be enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
Unfortunately, it only keeps getting worse. Capital controls are coming into effect in July of 2014, under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and so if you don’t have yourself or your wealth well outside of the US by this point your time is running out.
For this reason we have again set-up an urgent conference called the Crisis Conference this time scheduled for April 30th-May 4th in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. If you still have significant assets inside the US I urge you to seriously considering attending.
The US is currently similar to the early days of Mao. How it ends up is anyone’s guess but it isn’t going to be pretty.
