I've been warning of this for what seems half my life now.
I often recall an old missionary who used to go around from pulpit to pulpit warning of the dangers and methods of communists and socialists. A former Soviet who was both an active member of the socialist party and somehow affiliated with the KGB, eventually he had a severe crisis of conscience and fled his homeland, thereafter devoting his life to exposing the socialist creep implanted into and growing within US soil.
I remember more vividly his explanation that socialist architects rarely operate transparently, and that they are fantastically methodical and intelligent in their strategy, much preferring slow subversive manipulation to advance an agenda that freedom-loving people would never knowingly embrace, particularly if they understood the ramifications. Rather, they prefer to manipulate the lazy, and particularly the lazy-minded, for whom they actually have little genuine respect except where they are "useful idiots."
I recall his warning that the strategy of the leftists are to first take over the fields of information and education. This of course means the entertainment and news industries, as well as the education system. Who can reasonably deny that these very same systems are not now populated with born and bred sympathizers of socialism?
Likewise, we are warned that the tactic of socialists is to frame "the struggle" as one of the "blue-collar" class, the working man...the proletarian. And it is just coincidence that the labor unions are sold out to the radical left? It is not that they have bought into the old soviet style "working class" philosophies?
Socialists are almost hopelessly stupid in their understanding of that which they embrace, yet they are not at all stupid in the cunning which with they advance their ideologies with religious type devotion. As a matter of fact, they are deviously intelligent. Disorient and divide. Create and maintain a perpetual sense of crisis. Market government intervention and control as the only effective remedy. And above all, use idiots to their full potential as tools of propaganda. These are not new concepts, they are the old strategies of corrupt power-mongers with insatiable appetites. Fortunately for them (and tragically for us), there are always sufficient numbers of uneducated and self-serving sheep who are more than willing to trade not only their own freedom for a scrap of government provided "security," but that of their brothers as well.
Former KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov has it right in the above video. So here we have yet another "insider" revealing trade secrets of the left. Like the previously mentioned missionary and former member of the soviet socialist party, he again warns us of the grave consequences of our indifference towards an insidious ideological war having been waged quietly and patiently under our very noses for decades. But how many are paying attention? Remarkably few. And this complacent ignorance may likely be our undoing.
There are mainly three types concerning this issue. There are those who furrow their brows and say "pshaw." They think that criticisms of our direction are motivated by irrational extremism. They may not completely agree with our direction, and in fact may see significant problems with our straying from the Constitution and the founding principles. But they haven't the will to challenge our dalliances with hip socialism as such, thinking that that would then make them "extremists" as well. Nor do they have the motivation to seriously investigate the historical evidence alongside of the actual methods and practices in place. Instead, they prefer to stick their heads in the sand as "moderates" and "independents." "We are the calm, collected, rational middle," they may tell themselves. In fact, they are the first ranks of useful tools in the socialist (communist, fascist, marxist...call it what you want...they all serve the same utility) army.
The second type is the ideological devotee. These are the most useful idiots. While the "moderate" is simply unwilling to put up much of a fight, or to think things through to their natural end, the ideological devotee is not only unwilling to question the policies, tactics and consequences, they believe that the struggle is a morally justified one for which the ends justify the means. Cultivated by the ideological campus and mainstream media, they often think of themselves as enlightened, although the shallow depth of their sound bite knowledge base betrays an utter lack of genuine independent thought. These utopianists are the shock troops of the radical left, exhibiting a massive deficit in understanding history and human nature, as well as the dangers of expanded government and temptations of political power. Whereas forty percent of Americans identify as specifically conservative, twenty percent shamelessly identify as "liberals" (leaving the remaining forty percent as milquetoast independents). However, the power held by this small minority of one-fifth greatly dwarfs their size in numbers, largely due to the effectiveness of their ability to seize and control the systems previously mentioned.
Then there are the few "good guys." I make no bones about the fact that these are what we nowadays commonly refer to as conservatives (and many libertarians), or as the political right. But even these are a mixed bag, since many have ingested varying quantities of leftist kool-aid, and some are given to governmental control to enforce social policies they may favor. But all in all, these are those who understand clearly the limitations intended by our founding fathers, where they in turn understood perfectly both human nature and the temptation of political corruption. These are our modern-day tea-partiers, and these are the current vehicle of our hope for a return to freedom in opposition to the power hungry.
Really, I could rant on and on about this stuff. But suffice it to say that we are engaged in a war for the soul of America that will have horrendous global impact if not won. Yes, I know that it sounds kooky to some. There are those who might call me an extremist for saying these things. But I would call upon all who might think so to put the kool-aid down for a while and do the research. Get your head out of the sand and pay attention. We are in fact the proverbial frog being slowly cooked in the pot, and this is the documented historical tactic of leftist would-be tyrants.
As Mr. Bezmenov says, writing letters and passive protest is a fine idea. But it has proceeded well beyond that point now. The bad guys have been slowly winning for some time, and eventually we will have to make a decision of whether we will lay down and allow America to die, or if we will take seriously the war that has been laid at our feet, and fight it as such. It is certainly not an easy one to fight, much less win, as the enemy is none other than your brother. But it is one that must eventually be waged, else both we and our brother (to say nothing of our children) further become slaves of the state.
I was going to leave the blog thing alone for a while. Things have been busy and I have other projects and interests taking up time, so I figured "hey, I've run my mouth quite a bit lately, why not pipe down for a while?" And then I saw something that just really irked me. It should come as no surprise that it concerns Barry "Bam-Bam" Obama.
One of many things that bother me deeply about Obama is the degree to which he arrogantly snubs our closest allies while bowing (both literally and figuratively) with deference to our enemies and the various cretinous "leaders" of the world. It's as if this guy constantly dwells in the twilight zone. Suck up to China, Russia, and the Muslim states...blow off England, Canada, and Israel. This breaks a long tradition of recognizing very special relationships cultivated with longstanding allied nation-states, and shows the complete ignorance and hubris of our amateur Comrade-in-Chief.
For those who may not have paid attention since the ascension of our new Messiah, here's a sample of how he represents Americans as a nation:
Bowing. Wow. Now when was the last time you saw an American President do that?
Now you can argue that it was a matter of showing respect in a cultural context. Fair enough. I get it. But it simply is not done by the President of the United States, who is supposed to at least make an effort to symbolize our country and our values. Deference to a foreign power is not part of those values, Barry. (Note: It is not intended here to imply that the Japanese Emporer pictured is any less than a friend and ally of the US)
But it gets even worse.
More bowing. Damn, this guy is good at showing American weakness. And wasn't it not too long ago that the libtards were going on and on about Bush, and conservatives by extension, being a tool of the middle-eastern "oil" powers? Of course that was hysterical conspiracy nonsense of the hate-fueled left. But one thing is for sure, he never publicly kissed their butts like this.
Here's the one that set me off today, and the driving force for this rant:
For those Americans who may not be able to identify the person that Obama seems to be lecturing here (and admit it, most of you can't), this is Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada, arguably our closest ally, both in geographic proximity and economic ties.
It bears mentioning (once again) that I am an American seeking dual citizenship in Canada. Therefore I have a direct interest in the politics of that country, and support the Prime Minister as both the leader of the country in which I live, and as the leader of the political party of which I intend to become part. In short, I have learned to become patriotic for two countries.
That said, this picture immediately disgusted me.
Now I have no idea what was actually going on when this photo was taken. I think it reasonable that even Obama the arrogant con-man would not be this foolishly brazen with another world leader. So I give the benefit of the doubt that this unfortunate image just managed to capture both leaders in an unflattering snapshot.
The thing that bothers me, however, is that it also captures a sentiment that is very much based in fact...the hubris with which Obama handles our closest friends while actively seeking to appease those who are not necessarily our friends, or even our enemies. Old friendships are now strained while our enemies feel emboldened by the weakness our President displays on out behalf.
Make no mistake, President Obama has routinely shown absolute incompetence in the office he now occupies. Let's hope our old allies bear in mind that this joker is not in office forever, and that our friendships might outlast him. As for the photo, it causes me to be embarrassed for my Prime Minister, and ashamed of my President...not because of the photo, but because it symbolizes a reality of the strained relationships caused by a smug socialist American leader.
If divine justice were as reliable as we might wish it to be, here is how Obama's bowing might best look:
It appears that the Talkmaster (Neal Boortz) and I are of like mind, at least on the issue of whom should first suffer the effects of Obama's reckless policies.
In a previous post, I made the point that Obamacare will certainly result in a slimming (to be polite) of the health care work force, and that employees supporting the Community-Organizer-in-Chief should be the first terminated. Now I'm just a simple fella who nobody is really paying attention to, but when someone with a substantial audience says the same things, the leftist lunatics go bananas.
Apparently some of the more typical socialist mouthpieces (like Alan Colmes and the Daily Kos) were quite disturbed at a couple of Neal's twitter posts:
Boortz goes on to say:
"I'll make this simple. The Democrats have passed ObamaCare. You have
50 employees. You're going to have to cut back to 49 employees to avoid
the mandate that you provide health insurance for your employees. You
have this strange idea that you hire people to work for you and you pay
them well for that work. It is not your responsibility to take care of
their health insurance. So .. you whittle down your choices to one of
two employees. Both have been with your company for the same amount of
time, both have similar work histories, and they are both very similar
in their work habits and productivity. The only difference is that one
is an unrepentant Obama voter, and the other is not. If it were not for
Obama you would not be having to let an employee go ... so doesn't it
make sense that the employee who contributed to this situation be the
one to go on a job hunt? That employee was a part of your problem ... so
he gets to realize the consequences of his actions.
just why would you want someone who is ignorant enough to be sucked in
by focus group phrases like "change we can believe in" working for you
When Neal Boortz concludes the same thing as me, and folks like Alan Colmes go nuts, I hope you will indulge me a bit of smug pride in knowing I am firmly on the right track. Fire every one of those Obamazombie creeps...they did this, let them suffer first.
"The Community Organizer continues to slide in the approval polls.
Rasmussen and Gallup both have Obama's approval rating at 47%. That's
good news and bad news. The good news is that over half of the people in
this country realize he's doing a poor job. The bad news is that 47% of
the people actually approve of his efforts. Well ... I guess that's not
so amazing when you realize that just about the same percentage of
people don't pay any federal income taxes. Funny how that works out."
Actor Jon Voight recently penned a letter to President Obama and read it on Governor Mike Huckabee's news program. The video is available on YouTube, and the letter reads as follows:
"In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that
is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole
administration. The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of
people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the
assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care
President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the
idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived
and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only
truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep
and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and
it would be very important that every American knows what that method
It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by
little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new
language for the Islamic extremists. The world looked up to us as a
symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire
world if America is losing its power.
The American people who
understand exactly what is taking place have come together in the
thousands, vowing to try to stay together as a unit of love and freedom
for all men and women, from all walks of life, shivering to think that
this once great nation will be a third world country.
be the first president to ever weaken the United States of America.
President Obama uses his aggression and arrogance for his own agenda,
against the will of the American people when he should be using his will
and aggression against our enemies.
Every loving American for
peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join
the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their
tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone
must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the
liars and agitators.
Let us all stay in Gods light. Let no man
put asunder. We can and we will prevail. God bless us all!"
~Jon Voight, April 10th, 2010
Usually the Hollywood dreamers are so off base that it would be laughable, if they were not so dangerously stupid. How refreshing that there are still a few Hollywood actors out there whose common sense has not yet given way to utopian idealism. Thanks for the work you are doing, Mr. Voight.
This is such a beautiful thing that I just had to write about it. After calculating the crushing costs that Obamacare will have on his practice, apparently one doctor decided staffing cuts were necessary post haste. Lo and behold, in a masterfully executed expression of divine justice, the first victim of Obamacare should be none other than an Obama supporter. Now how beautiful is that?
And so it begins. From the very beginning we have tried to warn the juvenile leftists of the consequences inherent to a shallow approach with the health care issue. Rather than take, say, a responsible adults cautious approach, all they seemed to hear were cries for the "unfortunate" women and children, along with the sounds of their own heart strings being plucked by skilled socialist politicians. We asked for a slow and reasoned approach, and they would have none of it. We tried to explain that this would have devastating consequences in various arenas, not just limited in contributing to our economic collapse but threatening our very foundations as a republic. In response, we were portrayed as heartless pawns of the insurance companies.
This is a tragic disposition of the left, that they are hopelessly infantile in their reasoning and "gimme, gimme, gimme" attitudes. By using the word "tragic" I mean to refer to those of us who must live under the oppressive and freedom-killing policies they dogmatically force on the adults amongst us. In fairness, however, I suppose that we are at fault as well. We should have figured out some time ago how to prohibit miscreants and ignoramuses from using the ballot box to enslave others. Hell, I think it is a good idea to require means testing and an IQ test prior to granting the privilege of voting. Prove you are worth having a say in the future of our country, and the fate of your brothers. But alas...
So, now we see just the very beginnings of the unintended consequences of Obamacare. And as our services decline and our costs go up, remember to thank the idiot who voted for Obama. And as we advance along in our Presidents crusade to create a dependant citizenry, when you wake up one day and realize that you are enslaved to serve your government with the sacrifice of half your labor, look back to this day and remember that we tried to tell you...you selfish little bastards.
Marshalling all of the considerable global influence that a web page such as this naturally engenders, I henceforth call all physicians and health care leaders to brace yourselves for the imminent economic impacts due to Obamacare impositions by immediately reducing staff costs by a minimum of 25%. In an effort to allow ex-employees the honor and privilege of further demonstrating unwavering support for their Commander-in-Chief, and to the policies they fervently support, all staff reductions should consist of Obama supporters first and foremost. Allow them the opportunity to embrace the fullness of the "change" they fought so hard for, despite the pleas of more than half the country.
I'm serious here, folks. They voted for this. They should suffer the direct consequences before any others. And they should be paying through the nose for it, the bottom 50% as well as the top.
