Obama’s Class Warfare Rhetoric
Is Preparation for Tyranny

Canada Free Press, by Tim Dunkin

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 9/26/2012 6:14:12 PM

There was an old Greek legend that Periander, the tyrant of Corinth, once visited the very successful tyrant of Miletus, named Thrasybulos, to find out what was the secret to his success and long reign. As the two men walked through a grain field, Thrasybulos said not a word in response to Periander’s question. [Snip]Today, Obama promises “shovel ready” jobs on public works projects (which, however, have mostly ended up being completely non-existent, or else existing only to be shuffled around on paper using Enron-style accounting techniques).Obama tells us that government needs to nationalize industry to save it

That democracies tend to degenerate into tyrannies was well-known 2,500 years ago to those inventors of democracy, the ancient Greeks. But Obama is better understood as a classic demagogue, like the Roman Senator Gracchus. Demagogues are not tyrants but rabble rousers and agitators - community organizers, so to speak. They stir up the lower orders by appealing to their baser instincts, e.g. envy, resentment, malice, greed etc. and promise them deliverance from their wretchedness by redistribution of land or other wealth. The popular agitation of the demagogue contributes to the internal strife, division, and breakdown of social order that prepares the way for the emergence of the true tyrant, who restores order at the cost of liberty. The American Founders were well-versed in the Classics and understood all of this perfectly. Modern people, especially the intellectual class, do not. They are ignorant of history and Classical knowledge, which they dismiss as out of date and biased against minorities, hence unworthy of study. History is therefore being repeated once again right under our noses. A substantial number of Americans, including those who should know better, do not recognize a demagogue when they see one.

Why is it that you have to read articles like this from Canadian papers. Are Canadian journalists doing the job that American journalists refuse to do? Apparently so.

Footsteps of Ukrainian impeachment
echo all the way back to America
Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod    Original Article
Posted By: snowcloud- 2/23/2014 10:01:21 AM     Post Reply
The forced Parliamentary impeachment of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych just cancelled out President Barack Obama’s puny pen and telephone. Russian President Vladimir Putin was Yankovych’s pen and telephone, but with the entire world watching, the prime minister, who only three months ago made a deal in favor of the Russians over the European Union, has hightailed it for safer ground by abandoning the battle field. “Parliament on Feb. 22 voted overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych. Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in—328 in all—to oust the president. Following the vote, parliamentarian(s) stood and sang the national anthem.”

Almost a year after some 100 million cumulative views in the biggest selling TV on DVD in the past five years and the biggest miniseries of all time on DVD in its first week of release, featuring a Satan who had a passing resemblance to President Barack Obama, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett decided to leave the lookalike character out of their upcoming movie, Son of God, based on The Bible miniseries. Mighty merciful of the Reality-TV producers now that millions have already viewed the Obama-Satan lookalike in The Bible miniseries.

Know-Nothing Judges

Posted By: snowcloud- 2/17/2014 1:30:39 PM     Post Reply
Conservatives and liberty lovers pretty much take it for granted that liberal judges don’t know anything about the Constitution. That much seems obvious from the consistently ridiculous decisions made by left-wingers on the bench at all levels. Yet, it is somewhat jarring to come across a liberal judge who is so un-knowledgeable, so uneducated, so thoroughly ignorant of the foundations upon which this country was built that she literally does not know what the Constitution actually says, “A federal judge confused the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution Thursday night in a court ruling which overturned Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriages. “In

The 44th President of the United States is a non-stop talking Teleprompter, a pen and a telephone; a creature straight out of Science Fiction around whom no one seems to know the way out. Leading a hostile and openly anti-American administration, whose trademark is dropping a shock a day, he uses the technology of social media to force his will not only on a captured-by-Marxists America, but on what was up to his 2008 election, the Free World. The corrupt world domination-seeking United Nations and the falsely-named Arab Spring have flourished on Obama’s watch.

What do Socialists gorge on while their populations struggle through failing economies?

Not from Russia, which could be mistaken for approval of Vlad the Terrible, but the kind that is “harvested from Illinois streams”.

The Unheralded Return

The unmasking of Michelle Obama the ‘returned activist’ went down in history at a Virginia high school on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Five years into the Obama regime, Michelle came out of the White House as the activist she’s always been to instruct high school students that they are entitled to “free” government handouts. “Don’t leave money on the table,” she said. In a personal trajectory that went from telling kids what to eat to teaching them how to game the system, it’s no longer encouraging students to be the best they can be but how to get the most they can

Incredible how Fox News Corp. talking head Bill O’Reilly—America’s biggest, television talking head who’s out there professing “Obama’s not a bad guy”—thinks he can get away with ‘pin-heading’ John Boehner for “pandering to radio talk show hosts” on amnesty. Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time. Boehner finds no comfortable quarters from radio talk show giants Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or Mark Levin, who continue to castigate the guy who’s a dead ringer for the cowardly lion in the Wizard of

Can a Marxist who wants to take down

If the entire Congress is willing to give President Barack Obama a pass on being a Marxist/Socialist, why shouldn’t the allegedly right-of-centre Fox News Corp. comfortably do the same thing? Whitewashing the fact that top Fox guy Bill O’Reilly said of Marxist Obama: “He is not a bad guy. I think people misread him”, Fox News followed O’Reilly February 2nd interview by heaping praise on him for “asking the right questions”. If there was any chance of Obama answering the “right questions”, he would never have shown up for the Fox interview. Planting doubt in the minds of viewers that Obama is only

Fox News Corp. and President Barack Obama have something in common: Both believe their popularity allows them to continue to con their audience. In the lucrative pretend world that politics and cable television networks play to, the world becomes their oyster. Last night’s well-touted spar between garrulous O’Reilly and Obama had all the makings of a wrestling match with both wrestlers bouncing rubber-like off the ropes—all show but no headlocks. If anything, Fox viewers should now seriously consider what Fox is presenting as ‘real news’. “Prior to the interview, O’Reilly told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that he was “not nervous”. With presumed questions already submitted and

Progressives Without Progress
Canada Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: snowcloud- 1/31/2014 11:51:30 AM     Post Reply
There isn’t very much progress in the progressive movement. Progress is the expansion of possibilities. Progressives however have a Malthusian obsession with the scarcity of all things. They believe that we are about to run out of everything from energy to water to wealth and education and that like starving survivors on a lifeboat we have to redistribute everything. The progressive outlook predates the notion of progress. Its ideal is a static society, sustainable in its material practices and so utterly moral in its social attributes that it becomes immune to change. It is founded on the intertwining of the material

One day before President Barack Obama announced he was boosting the minimum wage from $7.25-an-hour to $10.10 an hour, at Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the Liberal Ontario Government announced a coming increase to Ontario’s minimum wage. Talk about global government by coordination! Ontario may be a long way from Washington, D.C., but the ties that bind between here and DC are family tight. Ontario Liberal MPP and Deputy Speaker Bas Balkissoon—who posted the coming Ontario Minimum Wage boost on his personal website—is the father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura who is married to Balkissoon’s son, Tony, both lawyers having met at

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story. Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of. After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

Conservatives have had it up to here (hand to top of forehead) with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Having barely recovered from the Cruz-induced shutdown and the calamitous backlash against Republicans, the GOP had to endure another episode of Cruzian grandstanding and the post-grandstanding trash talk. Mona Charen of National Review (stocked with many Cruz admirers) writes that it is “particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans.” At issue was his stunt on the debt limit in which he denied the

Senators Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee are the four senators, all Republicans, to have signed the letter. The letter quotes Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz as saying, "I can´t help but think that [D´Souza´s] politics have something to do with it. ... It smacks of selective prosecution." And, the senators write, "To dispel this sort of public perception that Mr. D´Souza may have been targeted because

There is now little doubt that the Girl Scout cookie boycott is having an effect on cookie sales this year. Girl Scout spokesman Kelly Parisi went on The O’Reilly Factor this week to try and defuse the mounting controversy, and Girl Scout executives have sent threatening letters to their critics. Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez took to YouTube on Thursday to deny all charges leveled by the boycotters and to deny at least one charge they haven’t even made. “Recently, various individuals and organizations announced their intention to boycott GS cookies this year, based on mistaken beliefs about our

The NFL may penalize players 15 yards for racial and homophobic slurs and eject them from the game after a second offense. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that monitors diversity, told ESPN that he "expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field." Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome "said the committee talked about other slurs coming under any possible new rule, including homophobic slurs."

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

Something is seriously wrong with Michelle Obama. Pitching ObamaCare on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mrs. Obama called young adults "knuckleheads." The first lady openly mocked the 18- to 29-year-olds who catapulted her husband into the White House in 2008 and 2012. Fallon: Because a lot of young people watch our show. Would you like to tell me - why would they...? Because a lot people don´t have the money to spend on this.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

According to literary agent Andrew Wylie, President Obama’s post-White House memoir could fetch an advance of up to $20 million . First lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, which she has apparently already started, could bring in an additional $12 million — not a bad nest egg for their golden years. Presidents have long relied on memoirs to secure their financial futures. Calvin Coolidge got a $65,000 advance, back when that was real
