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…..
In a perverse bit of post-trial agitprop, ABC News somehow recruited the one woman of color on George Zimmerman´s "all white" jury and twisted her words to reflect the presumed editorial position of ABC News. In this clip from an exclusive Robin Roberts interview which has played just about everywhere including CBS News, Roberts says to the juror, "Some people have said, point blank, ´George Zimmerman got away with murder.´ How do you respond to those people who say that?" In the edited video ABC floated about, "Maddy" answers unhesitatingly, "George Zimmerman got away with murder.
It should come as no surprise that some of the very worst rants about George Zimmerman’s acquittal are coming from an Ivy League professor. The competition is stiff, but will be hard-pressed to keep up with Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The Zimmerman verdict has caused Butler to conclude that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.” There are conclusions Butler could have reached short of equating her caricature of Zimmerman with God.
Toward the end of his closing statement on Thursday, Florida Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda posted a slide on a screen in a fifth-floor Seminole County courtroom. "Which Owner would be more inclined to yell for help?" read the banner on the top of the slide. The slide was divided in two. On the left was a photo of George Zimmerman´s Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, and on the right was a can of Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail. Beneath the photo of the gun was the question, "Who followed?"
Perhaps I´m just a creepy-a** cracka´ who doesn´t get it. But it always seems that when it comes to standards, the left gives you two for the price of one. And the idea that white people "can´t" understand black folks -- a similar point to which was made in a recent article about the George Zimmerman trial -- is a good example. But before getting to that particular piece, I have a question: is the issue here that one race simply cannot understand another? Or is this really just restricted to white people?
1.The Sound of Wet Grass: Black Racists´ War on Black Women The Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case has come to trial this week and the best thing that´s been said about it is from Thomas Maguire: "I´m proud to say I live in a country where the show trials look more like an SNL [Saturday Night Live] skit." You probably won´t know that if your source of information about the trial is the mainstream media and if your lifestyle doesn´t permit you to sit in front of the TV for hours watching the trial.
It´s a miracle! A fascinating and compelling movie whose plot is driven by the protagonist´s fidelity to the Constitution. (In fact there were more mentions of the Constitution than any other movie I have ever seen.) You have never seen a movie like Copperhead, and you ought to take the opportunity to see it on a big screen if you live in one of the forty-some cities where it is opening today. But even if you don´t, it is available today via all on-demand platforms, which is a great strategy to reach the widely dispersed audience
This is what happens when the President of the United States is dragged into making foreign and defense policy decisions, instead of determining American interests and then making policy to suit. And it is what happens when the president fails to make a clear case for those policies not only to the American public, but also to his own cabinet. It had been understood that senior members of the Obama administration wanted to provide arms to Syrian rebel forces in opposition to the Assad regime.
Michelle Obama has been capitalizing on her status as a descendant of slaves. Her latest junket to Ireland shows she is definitely enjoying the 21st-century benefits of the transatlantic slave trade her radical friends in Chicago refer to as "genocide" by white Americans. According to the First Couple´s pals, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rahm Emanuel, and Dr. Conrad W. Worrill of Northeastern University, white Americans should monetarily compensate black Americans for past slavery.
The latest polls show that President Obama´s approval ratings are in free fall like a hot air balloon with the fire extinguished; his approval rating has declined eight percentage points over the past month. CNN reporter Chris Cuomo described the decline as "dropping like a stone." Lara Brown of U.S. News and World Report, declared, "The Obama presidency becomes more Grant than Lincoln every day." Even his standing as a "leader" has shown a six-percentage-point drop among those who think he is a decisive and strong leader. Worse, CNN reports that half of the public no longer trust the president
I have always believed that regardless of the laws of a nation, the social fabric that binds it is woven of mutual trust between the people and their private and governmental institutions. Once that fabric is weakened, the dangers to an ordered society are extreme. This week, the holes in the U.S. social fabric are manifest, and they are caused by the administration´s ever-expanding lawlessness.. The statements by the high-tech self-exile Snowden set off alarms even among those who are willing to repose their confidence in the general integrity of our intelligence services.
Greg Gutfeld opened the June 6th broadcast of The Five by talking about the IRS scandal and asking "What can we do as Americans right now? This seems like a golden opportunity to go after a bloated bureaucracy, clean it out and create something." The answer is to spark a national protest demanding limited government by doing 3 things: First, unhide our taxes. Even the 47% who don´t pay federal income tax pay taxes. During the 2012 Presidential campaign, Mitt Romney said "There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president, no matter what..."
With serious and demonstrable charges of administration wrongdoing popping up every day, conservatives are rightfully angry at the desultory treatment they get from the media. At Just One Minute, the poster known as "daddy" summarizes that feeling well: Worth mentioning how the NY Times and the WaPo and Andrea Mitchell and ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN etc, were all so interested in Sarah Palin´s Emails, that they recruited volunteers across the nation to help them pore thru them. Yet when Lisa Jackson specifically uses false email aliases like "Richard Windsor" (unethically and probably illegally) to conduct Government business, and Sebelius today is discovered
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
