One overlooked influence on Barack Obama's political philosophy and governing style (if those are the terms I'm groping for) involves the Islamosocialist dictator typical of Islamic states during the mid-20th century. This class of ruler was washed up in the wake of the colonial period, as the Western imperial states retreated with no serious efforts to assure stable governments left behind them. Strongmen then stepped into the vacuum.
The left can't figure out why people would oppose government enforced equality. Well for one thing it isn't fair to the person who's earned what they have.People shouldn't get the amenities of a working person simply by pumping out a fatherless brat. People who live in poverty in this country would be considered middle or upper class in a lot of other countries,especially with living space.
It's really not a money thing but a get even thing for the left. Money is just a measuring stick of how far you can "punish the enemies".
Government liberals think they're entitled to their spoils because they're the arbiters of fairness.They want diverse neighborhoods for everyone but themselves.Even in the liberal bastion of Martha's Vineyard,blacks are roped off in their own hoods.I always laugh when I see the term "the black upper crust". They still haven't buried George Jefferson.
What the brotherhood doesn't understand is that Obama's goal is not to LIFT them out of poverty ... but to give them lots of company by enslaving many more Americans, including the employers who would have paid their salaries.
Gonna be dis-information (that's 'lies' for those of you in Rio Linda) all day. Especially be certain to tell everyone you know not to fall for the early declaration of victory the lefties are planning.
FTA: ''This is the real danger of electing someone who does not have an actual American background, whose character and ideas were formed in utterly different social and political milieus.''
This is the simplest & most concise argument ''why'' 0bama should never have been elected, let alone reelected. An example would be that 0bama was schooled for the twenty years in his pastor's [Jeremiah Wright] ideology of hate and racism, and damning America and repeating that sermon to the survivors of Hurricane Sandy as pResident.
"We have never settled solely political disputes with roaring machine guns or blazing pistols. The fact that this country has been run for four years by a man whose thoughts and ideas were formed in such conditions is, over and above anything else, an absurdity to the highest degree. It is a historical mistake that demands correction."
J R Dunn writes an absolutely brilliant look back into Obama's sick influences not yet examined. Dunn has genius. Must read! This article clarifies the depth of Obama'a cultural sickness. Imagine Nasser and Sukarno as his hereos - not Jefferson and Lincoln. If he wins we are really in for trouble unlike any second termer ever. He will have to be impeached for Benghazi and about ten other crimes.
The Senate will be 0's impeachment insurance if he somehow survives tonight, unless it all goes R. Hard to believe the current R leadership in the House would even attempt impeachment if there was no chance of conviction and removal.
There is one thing that upsets me when I read about how the fascists/commies do quid pro quo - give money to leftist political campaigns! Don't be idiots: they give money to leftist politicians! Why do you think in all dictatorial countries the bureaucrats have gazzilions in offshore accounts? Look at russian, ukrainian, chinese, mexican, etc billionaires. Where did they get their money from? Hard work? (Although it was hard to eliminate the competitors!)
Glad to see this MUST READ, because it certainly is! Explains so very much which we need to be aware of. We MUST look back and learn the historical lessons from the last century in order to not repeat the very same mistakes! Thank to, J.R. Dunn, for this timely, insightful & important analysis!
...From the long lines of determined voters we we saw when we voted this morning, we were reassured that we will soon see America the Beautiful's ship of state back on its Constitutional, 'compass,' course of Liberty with new leadership faithful to EACH ONE'S oath of office! Everyone was smiling as we thankfully and happily cast our ballots. What a joy it was to VOTE!!! God bless the USA.
I love the occasional experiment when Americans are presented with leftist ideas. Where cookies cost Asians more than Caucasian who pay more than Hispanics or Blacks. Or when someone proposes distribution of wealth by distributing Halloween candy or grade point average. Despite all the coaching from leftists in school, the American reaction is: that is not right, I worked for that! That is not Obama's reaction.
This article lays to rest many impressions I had of The Won. I found it simply fascinating that he would allow the adoption of the Che persona in marketing his image during the first campaign. If found it rather pompous and irritating that he would use grandiose faux backdrops in his political speeches. I found it absolutely insulting that his manner of communicating with the masses seemed like a know-it-all who condescends to communicate with the unworthy.
He is and does behave as a Third World demigod. I pray that after tonight we can bid him good riddance, and hold out hope that the likes of him may never darken the door of leadership again.
Spectacular article. I’ve been thinking this for about a year, and wish I could put it in words as he did. There’s no question that the communist countries of the 20th century will be considered passé in history, but meanwhile, look at the damage they’ve done. And most of the tyrants got there, like Fidel, because they stepped in with grandiose but nonsensical ideas because there was a vacuum. Imagine a 33-year-old jerk living in the mountains taking over a wonderful country for nearly 60 years, and only 90 miles away!! This Cult of Personality mentality is truly dangerous, especially since we know that even the “intelligentsia” and teachers are idiots!! Thank the lord for 8 year term limits. BTW, all the dems in politics know this guy is a fraud, but they stick to him because he has the power at the moment, which they are drawn to like moths to a flame…..
Individuals who have even visited Israel, or who observe Judaism, or who carry a Bible are banned from Saudi Arabia. Yet Saudi Arabia´s Israel-hating King Abdullah just flew in an Israeli scientist to have dinner with him, to enjoy some royal hospitality, accept a medal and the $200,000 "Arab Nobel Prize." It´s a not-so-subtle message to President Obama: the unthinkable can happen, so don´t assume the Saudis won´t join with Israel to bomb Iran. Obama´s new Iran policy moves the Mid-East closer to war over oil and religion -- Sunni Saudis versus Shia Iranians. There is no more strategic commodity than
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
