´Forward!´ They Cried

Benito Mussolini is one of history´s most reviled men. He was also a socialist. Mussolini began as a socialist;. Alessandro Mussolini, his father, preached a revolutionary socialism of Italian nationalism, anarchism, socialism, and communism. Alessandro had a great influence on Benito, and shaped his early political views. But in later years Benito determined that socialism was a failure because it did not recognize nationalism and natural inferiority. These revelations led to his expulsion from the socialist party and his rebirth as a fascist. In an effort to evade military service, Mussolini fled to Switzerland in 1902,

Hitler was such a monster, such a toll of utter evil that the other monster in Europe has been all but forgotten.

Mussolini was indeed a monster. His fascist party embraced violence for violence´s sake. They openly intimidated their political enemies, raised their own army of bloodthirsty thugs and through political chicanery managed to make the press and the legitamate law enforcement organizations turn a blind eye.

They took over Italy in a long drawn out bloody campaign of terror. Mussolini could honestly be viewed as the father of modern terrorism. He believed in the usefullness of unrestrained terror attacks against his own people as a tool for centralization of power.

He never let a crisis go to waste. When events would not provide a crisis, his terrorist would. Brownshirts killing political opponents? Give Musollini the power to raise a civilian armed force to patro the country and lock up political enemies. Terrorists burning graineries, food shortages? Give Musollini the power to confiscate food from profitable farmers and distribute it as he sees fit.

Sound familiar? Musollini used every crisis to increase his power. In the end after hanging his own son in law, he ended up on the end of a rope himself.

Same manure, different flies. Grandiose, immature, ignorant demagogues rousing the rabble and manipulating the gullible, demonizing and silencing dissent, claiming the highest but acting from the basest and most malicious motives.

A healthy host society possesses a functioning immune system to ward off opportunistic invasion by ever-present demagogues. When the host becomes sick and weakened, the demagogues arise and flourish, corrupting the entire body politic. A free, vigilant and loyal press is one of the first lines of defense against such invaders - but we have witnessed the destruction of this safeguard and its conversion into an agent of the attacker. It is reminiscent of the way the AIDS virus attacks the human host´s defenses and uses them to replicate itself.

Not that Warren Beatty, this one is a thinking American:

Dr. Beatty earned a Ph.D. in quantitative management and statistics from Florida State University. He was a (very conservative) professor of quantitative management specializing in using statistics to assist/support decision-making. He has been a consultant to many small businesses and is now retired. Dr. Beatty is a veteran who served in the U.S. Army for 22 years.

When the host becomes sick and weakened, the demagogues arise and flourish, corrupting the entire body politic.

This is how Alinsky´s methodology works. First the "community organizer" works to make the people unhappy with and untrusting of their institutions - governmental, religious, educational, financial - and then they insidiously work to implant their scheme for how things could be better. Leading the way but making the people feel (there´s that word again) that all of this change, this revolution, is their idea.

Van Johnson´s "top down, bottom up" plan so eloquently described by Glenn Beck. Also known as Astroturf - a constructed bogus grassroots movement.

First people have to be convinced that the original institution - their country, their constitution - had it all wrong. And only the "community organizer" knows the truth and the way to go.

I have been saying since the first year of King Putt´s reign, that we were descending into fascism. He seems to be surrounded by thugs and criminals....same as Mussolini. I wonder how many Republicans are being blackmailed and/or threatened. While I´m angry with Robert´s Obamacare decision, I keep looking at his prior decisions and wonder why he would do a 360 for a ruling that would ultimately destroy healthcare and our republic. I think he was threatened....probably his children were threatened if he didn´t make the decision that King Putt wanted.

Sen. Landrieu takes heat for reenacting
Senate hearing in campaign ad
Fox News, by Stephanie McNeal    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 10:06:50 AM     Post Reply
Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz adeptly sidestepped questions about how he´d fare among conservative Republicans in a South Carolina presidential primary. But he did say another Democrat in the White House would spell doom and gloom. "Eight more years of this, I don´t know it´s something this country comes back from," he said.Cruz, widely seen as the conservative face of last year´s government shutdown over funding what Republicans call "Obamacare," spent Tax Day talking to free enterprise advocates at The Citadel. "Liberty is under assault like never before," he told the crowd. "It seems this president is going down the Bill

Al Qaeda video shows terror

This gathering in the desert is no Coachella — it looks more like a full scale Allah-palooza. A new video popping up on Jihadi Web sites shows some of al Qaeda most dangerous terrorists smiling and glad-handing each other at a terrorist conclave in Yemen, CNN reported. The video, which features al?Qaeda crown prince ­Nasir al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fellow terrorists in the arid hinterlands, is being analyzed by US authorities. It was unclear if the CIA was aware of the conference, which could have been an inviting target for an anti-terror drone strike, CNN said. Al-Wuhayshi, the leader

CHARLESTON, S.C. — It didn’t take much for Ted Cruz to bring a crowd of conservatives to its feet here. By the time the Texas Republican senator finished speaking Tuesday night, an adoring audience hailed Cruz and his no-compromise, combative style of conservatism that has made him the scourge of the GOP establishment but a hero of the tea party. “Liberty is under assault today like never before,” Cruz said, pacing the stage like a televangelist. But even in deep-red South Carolina, a well-received speech full of Cruz’s signature flair is no guarantee that the firebrand politician could win the

New Census Questions Will Change
ObamaCare Findings; Networks Ignore

New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday. The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however. In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

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

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

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)
