Obama’s America: The View from Prague
Power Line, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/19/2012 5:49:07 AM

Courtesy of some Facebook friends, a translation of an editorial from the Czech newspaper Prager Zeitungon: The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama,

Excellent evaluation coming from a rare overseas country with some common sense.
Of course it´s Obama voters who pose the real problem.The culture of gimme has overwhelmed us and Obama is he best enabler they´ve ever had.

There was no welfare magnet back during the Ellis Island days except maybe relatives who took people in until they got their feet on the ground. They came here penniless in a lot of cases and worked on a dream.They made this country it is today or what´s left of it.
They also came here to be Americans not a bunch of hyphenated Americans.You have 10´s of thousands of deserted manufacturing plants in the NE now and my opinion is the advent of organized labor was behind this.

The cost of hiring people today is so expensive,that employers have been corrupted into hiring under the table workers to avoid all these costs.Since they don´t pay taxes they get more bang for the buck even at a lower scale.

If you have to lay off an illegal worker,no big deal because it doesn´t raise your contribution to the unemployment fund.If they get injured,the employer self pays for their treatment,avoiding higher premiums on their workmans comp policies.

Drudge had a headline 2 weeks ago that 2 out of 3 people hired under Obeama were immigrants.The cost of hiring an American is just too steep.Only to get worse with Obamacare.Illegals are also carved out on paying for Obamacare.

Sadly, my brother, who used to live in the Czech Republic and loves its people, is one of the idiots who voted for Obama with great enthusiasm. The Czechs know what it is like to live under totalitarian rule. It´s a sin that so many Americans are willfully going down that road and dragging the rest of us along behind.

ROmney was right but the MSM allowed the Obama regime to use his words over and over again to trash him. I doubt if any one on the public dole voted against Obama. Not only does that segment of America scare me, but the MSM who also supports him no matter what he does. Four Americans were murdered in our name and it was not considered news by the MSM until after the election. That too is a danger to America.

Seems to me that a vast number of Obama devotees are unwilling to accept responsibility or recognize an authority figure. They have been coddled and pampered by their parents and easily brainwashed by the educational system. The concept of hard work is also beneath them. Our prosperity has created the climate wherein these types of individuals can flourish and they have. We are about to see just what the United States is made of when the economy collapses. We will see who fairs better. I am sure some in the world look at us and wonder what in the heck happened! Unfortunately, those who have lived under the yolk of tyranny recognize it all too easily and realize that we are headed to a very dark place.

ALL of the people I have talked to who supported obama had extremely small intellects, no historical knowledge and just about no financial knowledge. But ALL of them had college degrees.
One of them, a cpa in her fifties, was unaware of anyone having cut taxes in this country and the consequences of such an action. All of them were for making drugs legal, suicide, abortion WHENEVER, even after live birth. Depraved is a mild word for this bunch of voters.

Obama need not worry about his voters seeing this article. So many of them just aren´t ´into reading.´ Reading would be such a waste of time, when they have Obama´s Marxists to tell them what they think.

I sure would like to know what was promised to the Zippy voters, not the long term stuff, the immediate payoff. We saw so many voters out that NEVER come to vote and certainly not at 9am. Just what was payoff that day?? There had to be something. These folks are so clueless they have a tattoo on their hand reading "Inhale,Exhale".

The sad thing is I know many of these "fools" and they are really deceived people more than foolish. They have been fed lie upon lie for a long time and it didn´t start in politics, but rather in the "Christian" churches who have been propagating a phony god for generations. Their god cares not a whit about sins like sexual immorality or lying or cheating or stealing or murder. Their god only cares about "helping" the poor and the proof you are worshiping their god is if you vote for the democrats.

According to this, this quotation originated on an American blog in 2009.

http://flattopshistorywarpolitics.yuku.com/topic/1315#.UKo2KIVLcbU

In April 2011, an American Thinker writer cited it and said this:

There is a wonderful quote that has been making its way around the internet over the past year. It apparently was translated from an article published in the Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung last April and reads as follows:

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/04/will_ignorance_lead_to_a_secon.html

Prager Zeitung, by the way, is a German language newspaper that publishes in Czechoslovakia.

No matter. It´s as true now as it was then. More so because the same stupid, reckless people voted for him again this month.

Whoever wrote it, and when, is beside the point. The real point is that it is absolute TRUTH, and that is one of the two things that make me so pessimistic/doubtful about the future of this country. (The other is our refusal to stand behind Israel.) 11/6 wasn´t our Kristallnacht, but it surely helped pave the way for it. :sigh:

If you want a reality check on what´s going on with Obama, ask people in the countries that were behind the Iron Curtain.

We heard the same attitude as in this article from the Poles we met there, including government officials.

I´ve been worried sick for the last four years because I DID live behind the Iron Curtain. Granted, I was there as an American diplomat, but I saw firsthand the horrors of Marxism. It was like being in a shark cage - I was insulated from the damage but I could see it clearly. It is beyond hideous and worse than anything most Americans have ever heard about it.

I grieve for my country and for my daughter´s future.

As others have said this was true 4 years ago and more true today. The decadent population is the problem. A free country cannot survive a decadent immoral population. I compare it to a parasite that kills it´s host and thus itself by never knowing when to stop sucking the life from it´s host. The parasites believe Obama saying that nothing needs to change if only the rich pay a little more. The GOP would have done well to feature the ad of Thomas Peterffy during the election and hammer it home. The rich will be poorer but the poor will be much poorer.

I´ve been to Praque, and highly recommend it to anyone going to Europe. It´s a beautiful city and the home of John Hus, the singing martyr, one of the early church reformers.

The Czech people are more in tune with American ideals than their European neighbors.

I just got back from a couple of weeks in Prague, where my daughter is studying for semester.

Sad thing is, in their most recent elections they voted in a bunch of Communists. No limit to what people will do for the promise of free stuff.

Even sadder, I felt so much freer there. Nobody asked me for an ID of any kind other than the hotel when I registered. Only place I had to submit to search and give up my electronics was the American Embassy. People eat and drink wherever they want, nobody worries about lawsuits, and even the dogs go everywhere without leashes. Wonder how long that will all last.

I still doubt the voting in last Tuesday´s election was proper. 0bama certainly got the lion´s share of votes cast by illegal aliens, felons legally disenfranchised, and the falsely registered deceased -- to say nothing of the machines rigged to count votes for Romney as votes for 0bama. (Touch screens in Colorado were programmed that way. Some voters caught the error, but many certainly didn´t.)

Sadly, the words in this article (if it really is one) only shows what America has become during the past several decades. But, it´s really no wonder. It seems that the vast number of immigrants, both legal and illegal, have come here from countries that were socialist, communist, or outright corrupt. As such, it´s the type of government they are used to and don´t any other. They have no background of freedom and self reward. So, they just vote for the person that will give them the most freebies.

In re #20, the confederacy of fools includes inner city blacks and hispanics, single mothers of all races, the young and dumb (university campuses stocked full of impressionable young people), young urban professionals who want everything now, yes, the msm, and the anti-Romney-ites who wanted to make their statement by not voting. Regardless of the source of the information, the message hold much merit and hits home on who is changing the face of America.

Do I care if 50% of the country are fools who want to live in socialism? Not really as long as they confine it to states like Mass and CA and all the other deep blue states. What I object to is the nationalization of these practices so that we ALL must suffer as one, when we´re not one.

This is why I want to divvy up the country so that the libs can have their socialism and the rest of us can have what America was intended to be. Shouldn´t that be agreeable to everyone? Sure seems like an amicable situation to me.

I have a thought, was talking about it for years.
The conservatives for many reasons don´t believe in the power of propaganda. How do you think the morons/drones/jerks/leeches will react to the promises of commies to get everything with no efforts? Of course they love it! On top of that the feelings of greed, jealousy, and inadequacy help.
We, on the other hand didn´t even try to organize mainstream media to explain to the above mentioned idiots what will happen later if we continue along this path.
And mind you, we have history of fascism and communism to prove it!
But no, every theoretician blabbers about wider tent! Morons and drones don´t care about tent - they already have the leaders - commies, who fulfill the promise. They don´t need repibics to repeat the promises made by dems!
But when the dust settles things will be different from the promised fascist/commie paradise. And this is what conservative mainstream media HAS to explain!

... And then there is that nasty situation of widespread voter fraud in swing states, with larger percentages of people turning out to vote in swing state precincts than there were registered voters.

Stop this travesty at the Electoral College or in the Congress, or with secession. The red states and any who want to join them can form one country and the blue states can wallow in socialism, at their own expense.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
