We Can Learn What We Don’t Know March 29, 2010

If the price of freedom is eternal vigilance we deserve what we have since we took our eyes off the ball to watch the game. As economically our once strong Republic veers from Universal Empire to quasi-colony of China, as the Alinsky trained radicals from the 1960s and their second-generation clone army guide America to Amerika, from freedom to serfdom so many of the sheeple are still asleep. The alarm bells are ringing, but the cracks in the fabric of our nation have muted the sound as the crack has silenced the Liberty Bell.
There’s nothing more interesting than speaking to people across our land following the big Democrat win in the Congressional version of March Madness. The opinions, emotions, fears and gloating are a wonder to behold. In these days of change, hope still burns eternal in the hearts of Patriots grimly facing the prospect of America becoming a European-style social democracy so that some of us can finally be proud of our country. Fear for the fate of their children and grandchildren is in the hearts, eyes, and voices of the newly awakened as they imagine the shabby future we face in a de-industrialized debtor nation. They see the constantly expanding debt and they know eventually someone will have to pay the tab. And they know it won’t be the professional politicians and community organizers who flushed trillions down the rat-hole. Instead it’ll be the previously comatose populace and their unsuspecting children. Gloating like a fat cat left alone with a Christmas turkey, Progressives are crowing because they can finally pull their red flags out of the closet to match their Che Guevara tee-shirts as they take a victory lap around the White House.
The art of magic is all about getting us to watch the left hand while the right hand produces the quarter from behind our ear. It was telling when in the midst of his first real interview with real questions since O’Reilly President Obama kept pushing his hand in Bret Baier’s face and telling him don’t be concerned with the process, don’t ask about the process. Smoke and mirrors have become the hallmark of the Obama administration. Look at the Democrat re-election slush-fund Stimulus bill. Have a nation-wide debate about spending hundreds of billions while the Fed pumps out trillions without any fanfare whatsoever. The media enhanced dialog heats up and flares over imposing nationalized medicine without realizing we’ve shape-shifted from E Pluribus Unum Latin for “Out of Many, One,” to Ex Uno, Plures “Out of One, Many” as America splinters into shouting crowds and oblivious leaders.
Progressives always want to be judged by their intentions never by the outcomes of their actions. Foisting a war on poverty on a country which has fostered more upward mobility than every other nation in the world combined and forty years and trillions of dollars later we have more poverty than when we started, but they meant well. They’ve opened our borders until we’re awash in illegal immigrants then they act as if natural and naturalized citizens are racists for not wanting to pick up the tab and give away the vote too. The Progressives have successfully changed the melting-pot into a smelting pot as America fractures into ethno-tribal factions poised to tear each other apart, but they meant well. They’ve embraced free trade and giving most favored nation status to countries with populations willing to work at a fraction of the American scale. Causing industry to flood out as cheap goods flood in, changing us from the Arsenal of Democracy into a source of raw materials and credit card wielding consumers, our economy is shattered, but they meant well. Bowing to kings and emperors, embracing dictators and shunning allies mired in endless wars with phantom tribesmen our prestige and power fades, but they meant well.
Mistakes of this magnitude do not happen innocently. It’s time to rip the mask from these defilers of constitutionally limited government and expose them for the charlatans and hucksters they are. For as long as the Progressives and their corrosive influence have sought to bring the blight of socialism to our shores they’ve hidden behind their supposedly pure motives. They only want to help the poor. They only want to make a level playing field. They only want to heal the sick, soothe the dying and give everyone everything leaving the check on the table for the producers to pay. It’s time for anyone who’s interested in knowing what this is all about to educate themselves. Generations of Progressives have burrowed their way into our education system changing it into an indoctrination system. The stale, boring and flat history force fed to us as helpless cogs in the public school systems left out all the good stuff. Read Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg, New Deal or Raw Deal by Burton W. Folsom Jr., Arguing with Idiots by Glenn Beck and any of the eye-opening books by Pat Buchanan. Now look at the bibliographies in those books and read the books they’ve cited.
Find out who these Progressives really are. Learn what their goals have always been and the smoke and mirrors will lose their power to blind and the way will become clear. We cannot let the emotions of the battle cloud the thoughts of our minds. There’s a way home, but first we must understand how we got here before we can know how to return there. Keep the faith. Keep the peace. We shall overcome.

Wanted Community Organizers No Experience Needed January 11, 2010

Talk about a man-caused disaster have you looked at the recovery lately? The Republicans under the Bush dynasty and the Clinton interlewd paved the way for the current debacle of fiscal debauchery. The only thing growing is the government. Have the Liberals staged a second revolution? Khrushchev predicted the Soviet Union would bury us and since they’re now on the trash heap of history is the Liberal Politburo of leftwing academics, corrupt politicians and their lamestream propaganda machine digging the grave instead?
The Obama administration’s takeover of America’s health care system, the financial industry, the biggest player in the insurance industry, major manufacturing the coming Cap-N-Trade boondoggle, and the soon-to-be-launched drive for import-a-voter immigration reform is a direct assault upon the productive designed to hobble their economic power and limit their personal freedom. The statists know the economically prosperous and individually free people of America stand in the way of their plans to create a centrally-planned economy and the regimented society it requires.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy for overwhelming the American constitutional system of limited government was formulated in the game-changing 60s. The leading tactician of the left, Saul Alinsky embraced and promoted this strategy. President Obama taught Alinsky’s principles at the University of Chicago and recently Christ Matthews in one of his softball interviews with a fellow liberal hailed Alinsky as one of “our” heroes. Applying Alinsky’s methods the cabal of liberal community organizers, corrupt politicians, unions and thinly veiled criminal organizations such as ACORN labor to bring our system to its knees. America is staggering under runaway spending while the Fed turns the dollar into monopoly money. The TARP rip-off has turned into an inexhaustible slush fund of crony capitalist corruption, the stimulus bill isn’t stimulating and the uncertainty of future governmental action discourages anyone from investing anything anywhere. Why would anyone want to overwhelm the system? So they can re-boot the system in their own image.
The contempt the party in power has for the American people and the process of a free people seems to know no bounds. Our president believes the Constitution is a flawed document because it doesn’t deal with the re-distribution of wealth. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi thinks it’s a joke when asked where in the Constitution she finds the authority for her actions. Henry Waxman a leading Democrat Congressman mocked people who dared ask that their representatives read the bank-busting game-changing bills they are passing in the middle of the night, saying unless you have two lawyers and two days you can’t understand them anyway. In his contempt for the American people Waxman even went so far as to hire a speed reader to read a bill in Congress to the laughter of his colleagues. Harry Reid the majority leader of the party that invented Jim Crow Laws and separate but equal the party of Bull Connor has the nerve to compare anyone resisting his attempt to nationalize the greatest medical system in the world with those who opposed the end of slavery. As the country sinks into the economic chaos their spending and regulatory strangulation cause they’ll cast themselves as the framers of a new vision, a new re-made America.
While its Democrats currently shoving collectivism down America’s throat. Remember McCain advocates health care reform, cap-n-trade, and immigration reform. The two major parties are two heads of the same bird of prey an oligarchy of power elites with its foot on the throat of America’s traditional meritocracy. The Republicrats are both run by Progressives dedicated to the transformation of America.
If these agents of change succeed in destroying the economy and neutering the Constitution what will protect the freedom and opportunity of America? How do we save the Constitution, re-institute capitalism and stop our slide into the incentive-killing swamp of collectivism? We need to organize. Use the social networks to communicate and connect. Support local patriot groups. It’s critical that we remain peaceful but it’s just as critical that we use our constitutional rights of assembly and petition to gather our strength and present our case for the traditional American system of limited government, individual freedom and economic opportunity.
Providentially at this fateful juncture we have an articulate spokesman with a national megaphone. Glenn Beck broadcasts every day on hundreds of radio stations and on the Fox News Channel. He launched the 9-12 Project providing a virtual gathering place for all Americans who seek the unity of 9-12-01. Of course Rush Limbaugh is the founding father of conservative talk and always a guiding light and the most respected political commentator and theoretician. Others such as Coulter, Hannity, Ingrahm, Dobbs and Savage are inspiring and educational. The Tea Party Movement is morphing into hundreds of local variants. Get Out of Our House (GOOOH) is building a grass-roots base for political activism. Sara Palin provides some political visibility for the average American. Yet it’s Beck leading the way. If you aren’t watching his daily television program you’re missing some of the best researched and in-depth investigative reporting ever presented. Tune in. Turn on. And throw the bums out!

What To Do Now That It’sBeen Done December 28, 2009

You can’t beat good political drama. The Nuremberg rallies with all those glistening uniforms and snappy torch light marches. The May Day Parades with the Soviet gerontocracy standing on Lenin’s tomb smiling at the grandchildren of the people they tortured riding on their shiny tanks and missile launchers. Even little North Korea stages some pretty impressive mass birthday parties for the Glorious Midget. We may disagree with everything these totalitarian nightmare regimes stand for. We may abhor their gangster tactics and hellish fantasies about conquering the world but you have to give them credit for knowing how to wow the crowd. They know how to stage a scene and then walk on as the Luke Skywalker of megalomania, wave to the great unwashed return to their castle of doom and continue living life large like Dr. No or in Kim Jong-II’ s case Mini-Me.
The Denver acceptance speech with its Styrofoam Acropolis gave us a hint of the political theater to come. The Victory speech to the teaming masses in Grant Park let us know the curtain was rising. Like the Perils of Pauline in a serial of sequels the suspense continues in the never-ending crisis. We must have health care and we must have it now! We’re so far in debt we need to spend a massive amount quickly or we’ll go bankrupt. This is an emergency there’s no time to read the bill hurry up and vote. We need this now even though it won’t be implemented until after the next presidential election. Hurry up vote!!!
There’s nail-biting suspense and edge-of-the-seat excitement as the plot thickens. What will it cost to buy Mary Landrieu’s vote? How much does Ben Nelson want for Nebraska’s vote? Ram it through no matter what the people want. Our lawyer-infested government knows better. Besides, who are we to question the only honest politician to emerge from the swamp of Chicago political corruption? Want to wake up with a horse’s head in our bed? Just pay the big and shut up they obviously know what’s best they’ve got 60 votes.
What a scene. The courageous iron-willed Nobel-prize-laureate makes his adorable little girls wait for Christmas while Daddy bludgeons a compliant Congress to pass anything they can call heath care reform so the Cavalcade of Czars can fill in the blanks later.
Every move they’ve taken since the November Revolution has been to seize control of the economy and society. Following the insurance, banking, and auto coups the health care take-over delivers another 1/6 of the economy into their clutches. Swiftly following will be Cap-n-Trade either by legislation or EPA mandate, Import-a-Voter-Immigration-Reform and watch for the regime to begin acting as if whatever that was the Boss agreed to in Copenhagen is a ratified treaty committing America to the UN administered shake-down carbon tax to help prop up statists around the world.
The plan is to push through so many changes and to commit us to such enormous debt there will be no way back to the America we’ve known. They’re also planning on maintaining their power in perpetuity through Acorn voter registration, manipulation of the census and import-a-voter immigration reform. Echoing the question I hear every day as I travel around the country, the question I receive every day in emails from concerned Americans from sea to shining sea, “What can we do?”
They organized their way into power and we need to organize their way out. We laughed when someone had the audacity to list Community Organizer as their profession on a presidential résumé. Now we know that wasn’t a joke. We couldn’t believe it when someone from the most corrupt political machine in America was presented as hope for change. But the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media pulled it off. Then after the Republican statists and their casino capitalist pals abandoned free market principles to save the free market it was anti-climatic when a majority of American voters elected a one party regime with unstoppable majorities.
We must organize. We must remain peaceful but we must organize. The Tea Party movement blazed the way. Now a new organization, GOOOH, or Get Out of Our House is growing on the American political horizon with the intention of vetting and backing candidates across the political spectrum. Others such as the Tea Party Patriots and the Tea Party Express are springing up bringing like-minded Americans together for education, encouragement and inspiration. Using the Internet and the exploding social networks these innovative groups are leading the way.
Believers in free enterprise, personal liberty and individual freedom are coalescing to out-organize the organizers. Constitutionally limited government will return to Washington for we shall not go silently into that long dark night. The arrogant career politicians, their media fellow travelers and the entrenched technocrat bureaucracy may think they’ve won the final round. They may think the America we’ve known and loved is down for the count but in reality all they’ve done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve. Don’t despair. Keep the faith. We shall overcome.
