Is Obamacare Socialism or Fascism?
American Spectator, by David Catron

As a general rule, I avoid “healthy” food whenever possible. I try to eat things with extra fat and lots of additives. (Snip) For a brief period this week, however, I was on the verge of bestowing my custom on Whole Foods Market, despite its deplorable policy of “selling the highest quality natural and organic products available.” Why? Because it seemed that the grocery chain’s CEO, John Mackey, was that elusive creature for whom Diogenes searched so fruitlessly — an honest man. Mackey is currently promoting his new book, Conscious Capitalism, and has therefore subjected himself

It´ more like Chinese style economic Communism. And in it depends what state you are in (e.g. 32oz soda rebels in New York).

Rather than a community organizer it turns out that this president is a community agitator.

Dividing the country into friends and enemies he has created a world unsafe for anyone.

My life has spaned 14 POTUS´. Obama is a "loose canon" or more perhaps like the proverbial loosed bull in a china shop ie,"anything he doesn´t break he ´executives orders´ on.
Socialism or Fascism,I´d say more like Hoolliganism. Like his recent separation of his campaingn funding from the DNC. That seems to be his way to not want to take any more directions or inputs from the DNC.

I think Obama is more fascist--really a wannabe dictator--than a socialist.
I think he spouts spreading the wealth, taxing the rich, etc., to increase his popular support and power.
He doesn´t care a whit about the poor or low-income people, except for their votes and how they can provide him support and power.
The blatant crony corruption and profiteering by Obama and his circle, the extravagant spending and vacations, demonstrate he is no socialist. He is pushing socialism to gain and maintain power.
He would issue an Executive Order making himself President-for-Life if he could get away with it. Who knows? He might try yet.

Hitler anyone?

This is how it started in Germany in the mid thirties...it all sounds good to the morons then day by day it goes really bad and ends up with the round up an murder of those that don´t support der Furer!

Anyone that thinks Obama is a benevolent person needs to wake up. He is a hate monger that is out to destroy this country so he and his sycophants can rebuild it as a Communist State!

I´ve been pondering for the last week, what would have happened in Nazi Germany after all the Jews were gone? Who would Hitler have blamed for his failures? In Obama´s case, it appears he´s been successful in blaming his metaphorical Jews even after they´re gone.

Socialism where he and the insiders made millions and Fascism where hundreds have already being murdered by the guns he supplied to drug cartels, millions to be killed when healthcare is denied.

In short he is a criminal like hitler, stalin, mao. He is being held back by all of our guns but given a chance he has the same mindset as any dictator.

Well, fascism is just ultra-nationalistic socialism. (Socialism means the government graciously allows some private ownership of the means of production, but directs every aspect of it.) Communism is Internationalist Socialism, carried to extremes. Since Obama is certainly no nationalist -- he despises this country -- and is certainly inclined toward extremes -- he and his crew are obviously communists.

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst
And The Brainwashing Of America
The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:39:12 AM     Post Reply
Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

   

 



 
Joker sob story is just sickening
Boston Herald, by Howie Carr    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:01:49 AM     Post Reply
Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´
Medicare Providers and Suppliers
Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:52:57 AM     Post Reply
Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With
Fake Numbers to Back ‘Climate Change’ Legislation
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:33:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
