NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — A press conference on Thursday, October 24, in the Big Apple will blow the lid off the “Marxist power couple” running for mayor of New York City. That’s how veteran journalist and event organizer Cliff Kincaid describes Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray, who took their “honeymoon” in Cuba in violation of the law and are considered the frontrunners to occupy Gracie Mansion when the NYC mayoral election that takes place on November 5.

Kincaid says it is time that de Blasio’s plans to close down police surveillance of potential terrorists be examined in a public forum. “The city that suffered through the 9/11 terrorist attack needs to know what we have uncovered about this so-called ‘progressive’ candidate for mayor,” he said.

In addition to Kincaid, director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism and president of the public policy group America’s Survival, Inc., the speakers include:

  • Pamela Geller on Arab/Muslim terrorism, why Islamists support de Blasio, and what the political group “Muslims for de Blasio” wants from the candidate.
  • Tea Party leader Joe Connor on unanswered questions surrounding de Blasio’s role in the Clinton pardons of the FALN terrorists who claimed his father’s murder.
  • World-famous blogger Trevor Loudon on the “democratic socialism” that is coming to New York City if de Blasio wins the mayor’s race.

The event, open to the press and public, will be held in the Hotel Pennsylvania (across from Penn Station), at 401 7th Ave, New York, New York, 10001, in the Gold Ballroom, from12:30 – 3:00 pm.

In advance of the event, Kincaid’s group has posted a 84-page PowerPoint dossier on de Blasio’s controversial foreign connections, as well as a research paper on his wife’s involvement in a Marxist collective. They can be found at www.usasurvival.org. These topics will be discussed in detail at the October 24 conference in New York City.

De Blasio was considered just a run-of-the-mill liberal until the New York Times on September 23 ran a profile of the candidate, disclosing in a matter-of-fact manner his travels to Cuba and Nicaragua, involvement in a communist “solidarity” movement, and embrace of Islam as an emerging political force. Kincaid said his group of speakers will expand on this subject and disclose new and even more startling aspects of de Blasio’s career.

New York Times Finally Has Authentic Communist Columnist to Make Alger Hiss Would Red With Envy: Vladimir Putin!

Putin KGB officer 

 

 

The New York Times finally has an authentic Soviet communist writing its progressive op-eds: Former KGB Assassin now thug Russian President Vladimir Putin.

And he rides in shirtless, his naked chest covered in gold chains and in bad need of a woman’s 18 Hour bra, atop a horse!

shirtless putin

Ah yes, it creates a whole new mean to the question: “Where’s the beef?”

putin

Alger Hiss would be red with envy!

This KGB assassin who views himself as Russia’s sexy killer beefcake is now an official featured op-ed contributor for the New York Times! And he has a column in the September 12th issue op-ed section titled “A Plea For Caution: What Putin Has To Say to Americans About Syria,” explaining his relationship with Obama. Don’t worry darling leftists; Vlad let us Americans know his “relationship” with Marxist pal Obama is

marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.

 

Good heavens, I hope American exceptionalism his considered treacherous to a dodgy murderous thug like Putin! We should want that S.O.B. afraid of America, not laughing at America because we have a mommy-pants-wearing Marxist president who handed the keys of free world leadership over to Putin on a Chinese-made silver-plated platter as he addressed the nation concerning Syria and Putin taking control of chemical weapons negotiations.

What could Putin tell Americans about Syria that we haven’t already figured out: Russia uses its veto power to protect Bashir Assad, Russia and Iran enable and aid Syria, Russia is in league with Iran and Syria and Russia is intent on becoming the world’s supper power and head of the free world.Yes, there’s much to trust there!

Look how Russia is now calling the shots– through the New York Times:

The United Nations’ founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America’s consent the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades. No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.

 

The UN falling by the wayside because an incompetent Marxist can’t swing anything but a golf club? Oh my, we don’t want the fate of the world suffering at the hands of a community organizer who’s only capable of organizing his golf swing. The profound wisdom of Putin can lead us as the “underpinning” for the weakened and unstable leadership of Obama.

The New York Times has found its Joseph Stalin!

putin assassin

The op-ed killer warns us further:

The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance… Mercenaries from Arab countries fighting there, and hundreds of militants from Western countries and even Russia, are an issue of our deep concern. Might they not return to our countries with experience acquired in Syria? After all, after fighting in Libya, extremists moved on to Mali. This threatens us all.

 

Talk about clever. The devout Soviet officer taking the side of life and peace! A professional assassin talking about protecting the world from mercenaries: What does that tell you all?

Does Putin really want peace or is he in this for what he can gain? If you have to think twice about that answer, you might be an Obama voter.

The Russian assassin is warning America—via the Times— that Obama’s foreign policy will destabilize the world. As if we don’t know that already. But hey, Gulags never complicated anything!

The fact is Putin wants control of world and the United States: That way Putin, who never leaves office, has control of oil and world currency with his Muslim and Chinese friends on his side. And the backing of the New York Times of course!

Putin gave the anti-war crowd what they want: He criticized Obama’s Afghanistan policies: The war has been escalated, not ended, and more have been killed when Obama promised peace and hope.

Even Hitler would be in awe of this con job comment:

From the outset, Russia has advocated peaceful dialogue enabling Syrians to develop a compromise plan for their own future. We are not protecting the Syrian government, but international law. We need to use the United Nations Security Council and believe that preserving law and order in today’s complex and turbulent world is one of the few ways to keep international relations from sliding into chaos. The law is still the law, and we must follow it whether we like it or not. Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression.

 

Russia, the land of torture-by-starvation, an advocate for peace? Russia, the home of bullets-to-the-head and poison soup, speaking out against aggression? Russia invented the Gulag for heaven’s sake! Russian leaders are as peaceful as a Roman Senate playing with knives in the month of March.

Putin will protect us as: “Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored,” and “We must stop using the language of force and return to the path of civilized diplomatic and political settlement.”

Since when does a Russian dictator care about attacks on Israel? Russia executed Jews in mass numbers during its Gulag years and ignores its starving Russian Jewish population left to die.

Since when does Putin not use the “language of force?” This guy is all about forcing civilization to his political will.

The New York Times must be on cloud nine. They finally have a writer who took five minutes of attention away from Rush Limbaugh! Five minutes is better than nothing when you are the New York Times and nobody except Chris Matthews and his six viewers care what you print.

You Know You’re A Communist When

Here’s a simple question: At what point do you know you’re a communist?

As a strongly principled Conservative/Libertarian, I feel like I could easily recognize other strongly principled Conservatives and Libertarians because their views fall similar to mine.

Using this logic, shouldn’t one communist be able to identify another communist? Better yet, wouldn’t someone who lived through Communism be able to identify a communist leader?

I think the answer is yes, and there is some frightening (only if you haven’t realized it yet) proof.

Recently an opinion article appeared in Pravda, a Russian Newspaper, by a relatively unknown writer, Xavier Lerma.

Let me start out by saying that after doing a little research on Xavier, I have found that he is not a Communist, Socialist, or Marxist. He is a Conservative, but Russian standards of course, with a true love for Vladimir Putin. If you read the column, you would catch on quickly to his favorable bias towards Putin.

While the column contains extreme spin and favorability towards Putin, everything that Xavier said about American and Obama is true – well, mostly true.

“Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.”

What about this isn’t true? Except for the ‘illiterate society’ comment, this paragraph expresses some of my feelings with the reelection of Obama to a tee.

Why do we study history?

We study history in attempt to learn from it, and to the best of our ability, not commit the same mistakes twice. However, we almost never learn from history and we always commit the same mistakes twice.

Xavier gets history though. He has learned from the past of the nation that he holds near and dear to his heart, and he is strongly against Russia committing those same mistakes twice.

Xavier knows that communism doesn’t work, nor does socialism. Xavier knows that low taxes are the way to go, and finally Xavier knows that faith, morals, and strong principles are the key to prosperity.

History tells us these things, and this is why Xavier is able to exploit all of Obamas mistakes. Not only is Obama and his administration not learning from history, but they are going in the direction of a “Soviet Plan”, something of which we know does not work. History tells us this.

The American media should be covering this story – its news. But they aren’t going to, that’s why you probably haven’t even heard about it, because American media doesn’t report the news anymore.

However, when Glenn Beck says something that is deemed to be “politically incorrect”, he is persecuted by the media.

What’s the difference between Beck’s thoughts on America and Xavier’s?

Nothing, and that’s why the media isn’t covering this story.

I suggestion you click on the link and read the column. It could do without all of the favorability towards Putin, but Xavier’s views about Obama and the current state of America are Right. On. Point.

You Just Can’t Argue Against Communism

Communism, one of the most virulent ideologies in the history of mankind, has proven harder to defeat than imagined just one generation ago. Though it doesn’t typically parade itself around in red uniforms anymore, communism is still very much alive, even if it is cloaked in the green jacket of radical environmentalism. And communism’s fundamental tenets of equality, class warfare, and wealth redistribution are core principles of the American left.

Most Americans no longer think communism is a threat or that discussing it is even relevant to modern political discourse. Though many understand that socialism is still around, they don’t consider it to be as dangerous as communism, or akin to it in any fundamental way. Communism no longer exists in the  public mind, because the Soviet Union is no longer formally embodied, and the Chinese have introduced some market elements into their state capitalist economy.

But communism is just socialism run by the wrong people, so many leftists think. If one resorts to history to prove to a leftist that communism was a scourge on mankind that was a necessary result of socialist doctrine being put in practice, he will deny that history is relevant, or will claim that communism was never actually implemented.

The best way to describe this mindset is utopian. “Utopia” is a word from Greek meaning “no place.” It was first used in modern parlance in Sir Thomas More’s work “Utopia” to describe through the words of a world traveler in a classless society.

And communism is truly no place.

The broader point is that it is impossible for the right to use counterfactuals to disprove that communism works, because communism, the way the left idealizes it, doesn’t exist, and never existed. They see all the flaws of the world, they see capitalism, they see war, they see greed, and they see crime, and as long as those exist in any way, we don’t have communism. We have a capitalist society, one that must be razed to the ground so that a brave new world can be molded from the ashes.

Thus whatever the world is, as long as it is imperfect, it’s not communism. And as long as the world exists, communism cannot be argued against.

Shocking Similarities Concealed

In a televised address to parliament, President Bashar Assad said foreign-backed terrorists and extremists were to blame for the massacres going on in Syria. Despite suspicions expressed by the UN that Assad’s forces are responsible for the Houla massacre, Assad denied it. Syrian opposition condemned his comments as lies.

Assad described protestors as paid killers, ridiculing freedom demonstrators as people not truly looking for reform. The opposition is seeking reform in a country where expressing dissent often leads directly to arrest and torture. They contend that Assad has offered nothing but cosmetic changes.

A revolt that began as peaceful protests can now only be described as an armed insurgency. This can be attributed to the harsh government crackdown that led protestors to take up arms in self-defense.

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, barack obama and many other “progressive” politicians have called the Tea Party “teabaggers”, “racists”, “astroturf”, “Nazis” ” and “extremists” on multiple occasions. The Department of Homeland Security issued a report that described the Tea Party as “right-wing extremists” and “insurgents”, expressing concerns that “Right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”

“Violent capacities”?

How much longer will it be before members of Tea Parties are called “paid killers”?

Hasn’t that already happened? Such a description was more than quite heavily inferred by multiple “progressive” politicians and virtually every member of the “progressive” Party Pravda after a nut job who was working solo shot Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Dee “Gabby” Giffords on January 8, 2011.

How soon will members of the “progressive” Democratic Party say that Tea Party members are “not truly looking for reform”?

David Axlerod, obama’s 2012 re-election campaign chief, claimed that the Tea Party “reign of terror” blocked immigration reform. Tea Party efforts to stop “progressive” Democrats from cramming unwanted “healthcare reform” down America’s throat are viewed by “progressives” and their media spokes-tools as “not truly looking for reform”.

How much longer will it take for the United States to become a country where expressing dissent can lead directly to arrest and torture?

According to former FBI agent Larry Grathwohl, Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground Central Committee meant to cause the collapse of the United States government. Ayers and his group would deal with resistant Americans by “establishing re-education centers in the south-west”. Those who refused to convert to Communism, would be “eliminated”. As in: concentration camps would be used to kill 25 million Americans.

Politico’s Ben Smith reported: “In 1995, State Senator Alice Palmer introduced her chosen successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district’s influential liberals at the home of two well known figures on the local left: William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn”.

The Tea Party movement began as a peaceful protest against big government, reckless government spending, high taxes and oppressive regulations. The Tea Party’s Contract From America expressed principles held by its members. The most basic being that “Our moral, political, and economic liberties are inherent, not granted by our government.”

The principles of the Tea Party were clearly expressed in the Contract:

Protect the Constitution, reject Cap & Trade, demand a balanced budget, enact fundamental tax reform, restore fiscal responsibility and Constitutionally limited government in Washington DC, end runaway government spending, defund, repeal and replace government-run health care, pass an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy policy, stop the pork, and stop the tax hikes.

That sounds like people who are truly looking for reform. Just not the type of reform being insisted upon by members of the institutionalized “progressive” left.

Only those dedicated to the overthrow of the United States government would consider a stand for protecting the Constitution, rejecting the UN backed Cap and Trade agenda, demanding a balanced budget, et al “extreme” in their views.

The similarities between what’s happening now in Syria and plans envisioned for America by the institutionalized “progressive” left are both shocking and real. Why are those similarities being concealed by America’s fabled Fourth Estate? The only logical conclusion is that the views held by the “mainstream media” are sympathetic to those of the institutionalized “progressive” left. They are on the same team.

If violence does break out in the United States, it will be due to a harsh government crackdown leading to peaceful protestors having to take up arms in self-defense. God Bless the genius of America’s Founders and their insightful, forward thinking ratification of the Second Amendment. For they knew first hand that of which Tyrants are made.

The Face of the United States “Forward”

President Obama takes offense when the word Socialism is used to describe his policies, but lately even the liberal media is giving ‘some’ focus to the president and his policies. As the contrast continues between President Obama’s slogan “Forward” and the same term used in Vorwärts written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels which was later used in Communist and Socialist propaganda the dissemination of the U.S. is a slow, but very real event. One doesn’t have to go far to realize this. Take any of the names from the Muslim Brotherhood, who are part of the President’s staff, or his past, and watch a U-tube video, or research their backgrounds.  We are not only living with the treat of Islam, Jihad – which is the installation of Shari’a Law, (www.conservativedailynews.com/didyouknow )  we are also moving toward Socialism.

How many people know the depth of Karl Marx or attempted to read his Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei (Communist Manifesto)? But more importantly is the knowledge and understanding of Marxism, and how it relates to what is truly at stake in this country. The progressive movement, socialism, or the move to dismantle the Constitution, along with other key factors, are what is really at stake here.  So who is Karl Marx anyway and why should I care?

Brief History of Karl Marx 

In short Karl Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883) was a man of many thoughts, but mainly known for being the author of Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei (The Communist Manifesto 1848) and the movements most important book, Das Kapital. The ideologies of Marx form the basis of thought found in Marxism.

Karl was the oldest surviving son of nine children. His father was a lawyer devoted to Kant and Voltaire. Both his parents were Jewish, but prior to the birth of Karl his father converted and was baptized in the Evangelical Established Church. Karl was baptized at the age of seven. He was an educated man who was influenced by liberal teachers, radical social policies of the Enlightenment, and by discrimination of the times which was probably what really enticed him to look for social change. In college Marx was introduced to the philosophy of Hegel where he became involved with the Young Hegelians. “At first he felt a repugnance toward Hegel’s doctrines; when Marx fell sick it was partially, as he wrote his father, “from intense vexation at having to make an idol of a view I detested.” The Hegelian pressure in the revolutionary student culture was powerful, however, Marx joined a society called the Doctor Club, whose members were intensely involved in the new literary and philosophical movement. Their chief figure was Bruno Bauer, a young lecturer in theology, who was developing the idea that the Christian Gospels were a record not of history but of human fantasies arising from emotional needs and that Jesus had not been a historical person. Marx enrolled in a course of lectures given by Bauer on the prophet Isaiah. Bauer taught that a new social catastrophe “more tremendous” than that of the advent of Christianity was in the making. The Young Hegelians began moving rapidly toward atheism and also talked vaguely of political action.  The Prussian government, fearful of the subversion latent in the Young Hegelians, soon undertook to drive them from the universities. Bauer was dismissed from his post in 1839. Marx’s “most intimate friend” of this period, Adolph Rutenberg, an older journalist who had served a prison sentence for his political radicalism, pressed for a deeper social involvement. By 1841 the Young Hegelians had become left republicans.” http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/367265/Karl-Marx

Later, after Marx received his degree he became engaged and married Jenny von Westphalen, the two moved to Paris which was the center of socialist thought and ideals of communism. There, Marx first became a revolutionary and a communist and began to associate with communist societies of French and German workingmen. Their ideas were, in his view, “utterly crude and unintelligent,” but their character moved him: “The brotherhood of man is no mere phrase with them, but a fact of life, and the nobility of man shines upon us from their work-hardened bodies,” he wrote in his so-called “Ökonomisch-philosophische Manuskripte aus dem Jahre 1844” (written in 1844;Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844 [1959]). (These manuscripts were not published for some 100 years, but they are influential because they show the humanist background to Marx’s later historical and economic theories.) http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/367265/Karl-Marx

As time progressed Marx became more engulfed in Communism and the ideals of the left. The significance of his writings found in the Communist Manifesto, et.al., are an important part of history. They represent an interesting contrast to what is happening in the United States and the Constitution of the United States. It is critical for people to find their own interpretations and look for their own answers when trying to make decisions relevant to what is the best interest of the United States and her citizens. Karl Marx, like most people today, became fed up with the issues relevant to his time, but choosing the wrong path can ultimately lead to the demise of fundamental expectations. In the Communist Manifesto he describes what is necessary to destroy a free enterprise system (Ten Planks) and replace it with a communist socialist state. The ten tenants (Planks) of Communism are strikingly similar to that of the American counterparts. The dissemination of our own Constitution appears to be in the works.

Marxism in a Nutshell

According to Karl Marx, three phases are necessary in order to convert a society to communism:

1. The total destruction of any existing system

2. Wealth must be collectivized by a leader who emerges to take control of the populous choices of education, religion, employment, and private property ownership

3. Utopia is then achieved by government control

Marx describes the existence of these 10 essential tenets:

1. A centralized banking system

2. Government controlled education

3. Government controlled labor

4. Government ownership of transportation and communication

5. Government ownership of agriculture and factories

6. Abolition of private property ownership

7. Private property right confiscation

8. Heavy income tax

9, Elimination of the right of inheritance

10. Regional governmental planning

Communist leaders also recognized the need to discourage albeit abolish religion. Religion is seen as antithetical and dangerous.

The 10 Planks of Marxism:

1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

The 5th Amendment clearly states the government cannot take a persons property for public use without giving them just compensation. This is known as the “Takings” Clause, because it gives the government the right to “take” property. But the 5th Amendment Eminent Domain Clause in the Bill of Rights states: “…nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” The lines become somewhat ambiguous when the government has the power to determine what is “just.” The land is meant to be used for public good or necessity such as highways, libraries, schools, and so on. Government officials have consistantly abused their powers as seen in cases listed below. You can also read more: http://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/eminent-domain-clause.html#ixzz1uEh0mWLt

Some Eminent Domain Cases:

Penn Central v. New York City (1978) 

Dolan v. City of Tigard (1994)

Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Com’n. (1992)

Tahoe Preservation Council v Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (2002)

Kelo v City of New London (2005)

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

This one really speaks for itself. The lack of understanding here regarding corporate taxes and this administrations propaganda to push the American people under the pretext that the “rich can pay more“ is at core of this tenant. The United States has the highest taxes on corporations than any other country in the world including Japan.  Large Corporations are not expanding,  they are leaving the U.S., and small businesses are going bankrupt. This is by far one of the greatest tenants of Communism whereby the rich will stay rich and everyone else will subside equally at the mercy of the government. These outrageous corporate taxes will continue to drain the American Economy while reducing corporate growth, salary increases, and job creation.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

For Karl Marx this particular tenant was put in place so no single person would ever have a right to property, whether real or personal under any kind probate law — there would be no inheritance. In the United States Americans call it the “Death Tax” which the name alone should speak for itself. The argument American’s should hold to, other than the fact that the taxes are not going to the states, is that the property is being taxed twice once when the person is alive and purchased it, and then again with inheritance tax when the person dies, which is clearly unethical, unlawful, and unjust by any standards.

4. Confiscation of the property of all Immigrants and rebels. 

This particular issue pertains to Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security’s scrutiny of what they refer to as “homegrown militias.” A keynote case involved Michigan Militia who acted in the name of Hutaree.  They were accused of conspiring to overthrow the government, planning to assassinate a police officer, and attempting to incite an uprising against the Federal government by bringingg explosives to the officers funeral. The attack at the funeral never happened, yet Eric Holder felt inclined to raid the Hutaree outposts, and confiscate its members’ guns. In March 2012 the serious charges against the group were dismissed – a shocking slap in the face of the Federal government. The presiding judge concluded “hatred of the government did not amount to conspiracy to overthrow it.” To read more about that case go to: http://dig.abclocal.go.com/wls/documents/Hutaree-evidence.pdf

The second amendment is slowly but surely being taken away enabling government to tighten its grip over its citizens. It is one of the main events that occurred by the Soviets. Disarming its citizens allowed the Soviets the ability to maintain absolute power over its people.  In the United States this happens under the disguise of: government seizures, tax liens, Public law 99-570 (1986), Executive order 11490- sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development,  the imprisonment of ‘terrorists’ and those who speak out or write against the government (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill), or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.  Asset forfeiture laws are used by DEA, IRS, ATF, and so on.  Another example: on March 7, 2012 the ACLJ Defends Tea Party Groups From IRS Assault. To read about this go to: http://aclj.org/free-speech-2/aclj-defends-tea-party-groups-from-irs-assault  It is important to recognize how the government is becoming more and more like “Big Brother,” it continues to grow in wealth and power while the American people and their rights become antiquated relics of the past.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. The Federal Reserve sets the nations monetary policy, controls the American economy, guides interest rates, and controls inflation. The way the reserve is continually printing money devalues our currency, hence the cost of goods and services rise.  All local banks are members of the Federal system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation.

6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver’s licenses and Department of Transportation regulations. You may recognize some of these things such as Amtrak which is a government owned entity, the Interstate Hwy System, Federal Aviation Authority to name a few. The railroad went from privately owned to government owned.  Amtrak is the ONLY passenger train/rail in the country and it is owned by the Federal government.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

Again, too many to list here, but we can begin with all the bailouts for the auto industry beginning with GM. But other aspects could be found under The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

Clearly the power of Labor Unions, the fact the President receives substantial amounts of money from Unions, Unions ( along with Soros) financing of Occupy Wall Street groups, and their unrelenting presence in the workplace all represent the 8th tenant. There is the Department of Labor, Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. Again, so much of this has been in the news with the WI elections and other state issues where the President attempts to use his powers to overstep and mandate all aspects of the American people.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.

One of the largest government owned power companies is the Tennessee Valley Authority (http://www.tva.gov/ ) which clearly defines socialism at its finest. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also supports the idea of socialism by forcing business to comply with more stringent restrictions in the form of cap and trade and by mandating the purchase of carbon credits.

10. Free education for all children in public schools.

Ah the public education system, I could go on for decades here, but one example would be when the government decides what a child needs over the parent, for example what children should eat, (Michelle Obama). Another would be tenure with teachers. It is ridiculous how these teachers cannot be fired. Let’s not forget how the government has removed any form of Christianity (Christmas Vacation now Winter break etc), altered the Pledge of Allegiance, while turning a blind eye to teaching about Islam, as well as moral issues disguised under the word “tolerance.”

The Successful Desensitization of the American Voter

Of course no good-hearted American wants socialism or communism, but after more than 90 years of progressive desensitization, it’s becoming much more acceptable.

In September of 1919, the Communist Party of the United States (CPUS) was formed as a counter to the Socialist Party of America (SPA). CPUS differed with SPA on one critical issue – the strategy to use to rid the United States of capitalism. While SPA wanted to see organized, militaristic direct action (bombings, armed insurretion, violence against those who disagreed with them), the CPUS wanted to focus on electoral politics – a strategy still used today by America’s Big-Labor unions.

For almost a century, a socialist influence has moved slowly and patiently to bring the last best hope for true economic and social freedom to a cataclysmic end. The tools of class warfare, social justice and false equality have been used to slowly de-sensitize the American populace so that socialistic ideas could take hold and win in election years. Statements like “taking care of our seniors”, “healthcare for all”, “protecting the working poor”, “defending the middle-class”, “making the rich pay their fair share” and more are intended to guilt American voters into trading self-reliance and liberty for government entitlements, dependence and security. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety

Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the United States is a call to arms for Socialism. Such fundamentalism – as Benjamin Gitlow who was arrested as a communist revolutionary in 1919 – attested at his trial in 1920 is central to the socialist agenda:

The socialists have always maintained that the change from capitalism to socialism would be a fundamental change, that is, we would have a complete reorganization of society, that this change would not be a question of reform; that the capitalist system of society would be completely changed and that that system would give way to a new system of society based on a new code of laws, based on a new code of ethics, and based on a new form of government.

  • The government has gone so far as to first take over an American company (GM), then hand ownership to the Union after stripping investors of their rightful stake.
  • Both GE and GM have been heavily pressured by the government to do its bidding – even to the detriment to each business
  • The blackmailing of Boeing by the NLRB as favor to the labor unions
  • Health Care Reform will be the death of the Health Care industry the way we know it – before long, only the government will be left
  • A late Friday executive order by Barack Obama allowing the government more control over the centralized manufacturing and distribution of goods (see: definition of socialism)

Nothing scary here right?

So while not technically socialism by Merriam-Webster’s definition, Crony Socialism or Socialism-light at a minimum is running rampant in our government – how long until the next step is taken?

Just 10 years ago, did anyone believe that the government would have taken over a public company, raided Gibson guitars without cause, given the President the power to direct manufacturing and output, told an aircraft company where it may or may not build a factory, forced terrible health insurance down American’s throats, subsidized something so awful as the Chevy Volt or turned California farms into desert to save an inedible fish?

But the lights aren’t flashing, buzzers aren’t sounding yet are they?

A recently publicized video of Attorney General Eric Holder stating that the leftists must brainwash American’s against gun ownership is a testament to the strategy of the progressive socialists. Fast and Furious was but one attempt to make the gun industry into a distasteful and hated villain – even though it was the government itself being the terrorist, criminal and facilitator of murder.

Yet, the outcry is minimal. The alarm is only sounding in the deepest corners of the Pro-American right. Even Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has rejected the idea that socialism can be used to describe Barack Obama. Why not call it what is is: a 21st century brand of crony-socialism and go after the current administration? Perhaps because of the backlash from the American voters. The electorate has already been so numbed to the ideals and actions of the administration that they no longer see these activities as a threat to the basic fabric that created the greatest nation on Earth. Voters have been so desensitized to these activities that they no longer see them as reprehensible, wrong and detrimental to the American way of life.

American voters are railing against those who would toe the line against socialism. Falling in-line with the talking points of the left, a large portion of the electorate does not believe that those in Congress should be reversing the growth of government by budgetary restriction. So many now owe a portion of their subsistence to the government or soon will that they have no choice but to bend to the will of the ever more powerful central government – exactly what the founders wanted to prevent, the progressive socialists have worked so hard for and of which de Toqueville warned.

While professing “give-and-take”, socialist progressives aren’t actually giving anything. The right is asking for budget cuts and the left has not been able to even hold the deficit steady while in control of congress. The Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t offered a budget in the entirety of Obama’s term and the President has not yet demanded one. Despite concerns from the Congressional Budget Office, Americans are not demanding reforms to government spending to prevent America from falling into the same debt trap that has the European Union teetering on the brink of economic collapse.

And again – no sirens, no media outcry, and the size of anti-big government rallies is dwindling. Americans are slowly accepting a long-term, dire fate in trade for self-serving gifts from the public treasury.

Nothing to see here folks, please move along.

Fighting the Leftists’ Secret Combination

The late Ezra Taft Benson, Secretary of Agriculture during the Eisenhower Administration, spoke out frequently on the subject of a secret combination that was striving to overthrow our society with the aim of taking total control over all men everywhere. He warned that organized crime was ubiquitous throughout our society; terrorists, drug gangs, various Mafias, and bloody tyrants.

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson

But he said they all paled in comparison to the one great secret combination that dwarfed all others because of the scope of its broad penetration into society and its ruthless effectiveness in the advancement of pure evil. This secret combination, warned Benson, was based on communism/socialism. Benson said that the motivation of this, the worst of all conspiracies, was “to get power and gain.” In order to accomplish this end, said Benson, this vast conspiracy of communists and socialists was conspiring to “overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries.” Benson was mocked and ignored by the media, the government, and society at large. Benson was undeterred by the mockery from the leftists. He continued to warn us about the secret combination, “A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing in its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.”

Bringing religion into the discussion, Benson said the following:

It is well to ask, what system established secret works of darkness to overthrow nations by violent revolution? Who blasphemously proclaimed the atheistic doctrine that God made us not? Satan works through human agents…I refer to the infamous founders of Communism and others who follow in their tradition.

Communism introduced into the world a substitute for true religion. It is a counterfeit of the gospel plan. The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established.

Since 1917 this godless counterfeit to the gospel has made tremendous progress toward its objective of world domination.

Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” Tell that to the millions—yes, the scores of millions—who have met death or imprisonment under the tyranny of Communism! Such would be the death knell of freedom and all we hold dear. God must ever have a free people to prosper His work and bring about Zion.

            —Ezra Taft Benson. A Witness and a Warning. Ensign Magazine. November 1979.

Benson was continuously mocked for his talk of secret combinations; however history is proving him right. Ignored for scores of years, appeased by governments near and far, the communist/socialist and yes, Democrat conspiracy, is close to the complete takeover of The United States of America. And it is no accident that men and women of faith are leading the fight today against the communists and socialists who hide behind the deliberately misleading label of “Democrat.” This is not a fight between left and right. In all honesty, this is a fight between good and evil. This is why Catholics, Evangelicals, Mormons, Presbyterians, Quakers, Seventh-day Adventists, Episcopalians, the Disciples of Christ, and members of numerous other religions are united together to fight the common enemy. The election of Barack Obama did two things: (1) it brought into power a member of this communist/socialist conspiracy, and (2) it awoke the sleeping giant that is the good, conservative, God-fearing people of the Earth. The battle has been joined.

Despite the repeated warnings from Benson and others like him, we were slow to recognize the evil that comprises socialism, liberalism, communism, and their front man—the Democratic Party.

Rev. Billy Graham

Rev. Billy Graham

We failed to see what was happening as this secret combination infected itself into our judiciary, our Congress, and now even the office of President of the United States. We can’t say we weren’t warned. The Rev. Billy Graham once famously said “their communism must die or Christianity must die.” Truer words were never spoken. Barack Obama’s assault on the religious freedom of Catholics doesn’t have the end goal of forcing Catholics to bow their heads and bend their knees to his Administration and capitulate on a matter concerning health insurance. The truth of the matter is that Obama, like communists everywhere, seeks to eliminate God from our society. The basic problem that Obama and this communist/socialist secret conspiracy have with God is that God represents a power greater than their own. God competes with the power of the State and thus Communists/Socialists/Liberals/Democrats seek to destroy God and to also destroy the faith that people have in God.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.

Those hallowed words from the Declaration of Independence say it all. We derive our rights from God and not from the State. That is pure sacrilege to the secret combination that exists within our citizenry. Communism cannot tolerate the existence of God for God is greater than they. It is no accident that the Tea Party and their allies, good men everywhere, overwhelmingly come from the ranks of those who believe in God. That is where the line is drawn and we all must choose this day. Do we follow evil or do we follow God? There have always been fence-sitters, those who prefer to be lukewarm instead of hot or cold. But these are becoming fewer and fewer. The threat we face today is creating an environment in which we must individually choose which side to which we belong. Are we with those, like Obama, who prefer Alinsky over God? Are we with those who worship the Earth; in essence worshiping the Creation rather than the Creator? Are we going to sit idly by while this secret combination completes its takeover of our country?

There are those who “get it” and are not afraid to be counted among those willing to rise up against this secret combination of tyranny. One of these is Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said on February 5, 2012 that “as prime minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation.”

President Ronald Reagan

President Ronald Reagan

Another such voice of courage came from the lips of Andrew Breitbart who fearlessly proclaimed “I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.” But perhaps the most fitting quote comes from Ronald Reagan: “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

This coming general election might very well be the last chance we have to avoid the total destruction of our society. If we are to defeat Obama then Evangelicals might have to overlook their theological differences with Mitt Romney. Mormons might have to overlook their theological differences with Rick Santorum. Newt Gingrich might have to realize that the needs of his country are greater than his own personal career goals. The Tea Party members might have to swallow their social conservatism just enough to vote for a Republican they don’t totally support. Why? Because we all know what will happen if we don’t!

Make no mistake about it. The secret combination that Benson spoke of is real. It has often been said that Obama is a Manchurian president—wise words from wise men indeed! Obama proudly proclaims his devotion to the working class, the poor, the homeless and the hungry. We have been fooled in the past by such false proclamations from other Democrats, but no more. At a superficial level Obama’s redistributionist doctrine doesn’t seem all that bad. Obama promises the feed the hungry, cloth the naked, and give relief to the sick and the afflicted through nationalized health care. But when we take our blinders off we clearly see that Obama’s policies are designed to take away our personal liberties, deny us our God-given freedoms, and make us all dependent upon a socialist government. Obama seeks to force philanthropy upon us. Obama seeks to remove from us our sacred responsibility to care for our own needs, our self-reliance, and replace it with a collectivistic pot into which all our personal property is thrown. We have to be strong enough to resist the impulse to dip our hands into that collectivistic pot. It is tempting to believe in the notion that all of our needs will be taken care of by a benevolent government. But it comes with a steep price. And remember this, my friends, once freedom is lost it is only regained with the shedding of blood.

We have allowed this gang of socialists, communists, leftists, Democrats, liberals, environmentalist nut jobs, and Occupiers to gain almost total control over us. They hold the United States Senate. They are plotting to regain control of the House of Representatives. They control the Presidency. They hold seats on the Supreme Court and on countless lesser courts of law. They control the Main Stream Media. They control higher education. The teacher unions, for all practical purposes, control secondary education. They have infiltrated our religions, giving us people like the Rev. Wright, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. They control large segments of our economy. And they are very close to victory. Does that scare you? It should. We have appeased this conspiracy because (1) we didn’t want to offend them, and (2) we shoved our heads in the sand in hopes that they would disappear. Well, they haven’t disappeared. And, thankfully, millions of Americans now realize the danger and are banding together to fight this monstrosity. Some, like me, fight them on Twitter. Millions more are fighting on Facebook. Countless others are lambasting liberals at Town Hall meetings. Others fight simply by removing their children from public schools in order to avoid the forced indoctrination of communist philosophy and instead are homeschooling their children. Others are showing the courage of running for public office. And tens of millions more stand ready to vote this disease out of office. We need them all. On this Super Tuesday, it is my hope that we can finally unite behind a single candidate. We need to bring this primary season to a close, decide on a candidate, and move on to the real fight against Obama and his gang that seek to enslave us.

In conclusion, I find solace in the words of Ronald Reagan.

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

May God bless you all, my dear patriots. We have arrived at that rendezvous with destiny foreseen by Ronald Reagan. We have until November 6, 2012 to proclaim liberty to all the land. I pray that our efforts will be successful.

Let's Topple North Korea!

Kim Jong-Il has died, and will be replaced by his son, Kim Jong-Un. At this moment, I believe we have a singluar opportunity to topple the most barbaric regime in the modern world.

Some background:

North Korea relies on its black markets. North Korea’s more-Stalinist-than-Stalin laws which centralize the economy are so restrictive that authorities have had to turn a blind eye to black market ventures- such as the private sale of grain between persons (illegal since 1957, but unenforced from 1990 until 2005)- just to allow people to subsist and to bring hard currency into the country.

A 2002 attempt by the NK government to legalize some of this black market and slightly liberalize the economy turned out to have worked too well- too many North Koreans were found to have been participating in these ventures, and the government rescinded these minor freedoms in 2005 and resumed enforcing Stalinist laws which hadn’t been enforced in decades.

According to Andrei Lankov, the average North Korean household drew nearly 80% of its income from these minor capitalist ventures at one point. This is astonishing, considering the criminal penalties for breaking the law in North Korea. The communist system is such a complete failure that people risk execution or generational imprisonment of their families by undertaking minor black market activities just to survive in a country where famine is so widespread some people are resorting to cannibalism.

These necessary and natural black markets also carry outside information into North Korea, primarily in the form of South Korean CDs and magazines. There is clearly a desire in North Korea for contact with the outside world.

This reminds us of something we already know about communism in general: It’s always doomed to failure. The more hardline a communist regime, the shorter the regime’s life expectancy will be. North Korea has become more hardline in the last several years- tightening economic controls in 2005 and wiping out citizens’ savings by revaluing the NK won, for example.

The death of Kim Jong-Il and the apparent takeover by his son, Kim Jong-Un, means that this monstrous state has reached its “rock bottom”: the most total of totalitarian governments, organized for decades to be totally dependent on a single, deified leader, will now bestow absolute authority on a fat, spoiled, unprepared 28-year-old psychopath who only got the job because his older brother was deemed “too girly” by their father. In other words, Kim Jong-Un will undoubtedly be a modern-day Caligula in charge of an already-failing regime.

Couple this with an already-desperate condition for most of North Korea’s population, and an ever-growing desire for contact and trade with the rest of the world, and we have the conditions for a regime change.

Any act which the United States and its allies can take to undermine this failing state would be a positive step- and would be especially devastating at this particular time. Suspending food and oil shipments, sanctioning North Korea’s central bank, hijacking North Korea’s broadcast media to spread the message of freedom, promoting North Korea’s black markets, all of these acts and others would contribute to hastening the fall of the DPRK.

We have a unique opportunity at this moment to topple the most oppressive government in the world, without military force, simply by taking advantage of the already-present desire of many North Koreans to be free of their dictator and improve their living conditions.

In other words, we have a chance to do to North Korea what Ronald Reagan did to the Soviet Union.

And in case you’re interested, here’s my post about North Korea’s constitution.

North Korea's Dictator Leader Is Dead

The following is an AP press report.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) – Kim Jong Il, North Korea’s mercurial and enigmatic longtime leader, has died of heart failure. He was 69.

In a “special broadcast” Monday from the North Korean capital, state media said Kim died of a heart ailment on a train due to a “great mental and physical strain” on Dec. 17 during a “high intensity field inspection.” It said an autopsy was done on Dec. 18 and “fully confirmed” the diagnosis.

Kim is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, but he had appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country carefully documented by state media. The communist country’s “Dear Leader” – reputed to have had a taste for cigars, cognac and gourmet cuisine – was believed to have had diabetes and heart disease.
