Having attained power in late 1917 on a raft of promises — land to Russia´s peasants, bread to Russia´s starving cities and peace to Russia´s World War I-weary soldiers — V.I. Lenin was able to dispense with every one of them by advancing civil war from 1918 to 1921 to justify his acts by crisis. In place of promises of liberty and rights, Lenin gave Russians propaganda, empowering the Bolsheviks to govern through knoutish messages, if not the barrel of the gun. In so doing, he sought to undermine Russia´s weak democracy and to transform society fundamentally. "The Russian Revolution was permeated
Must read. Our Islamic communist POTUS and his modern day Bolsheviks are following Leninist play book. Obamas rhetoric is inflammatory, his actions designed to create chaos, his policies such as obamacarevwith one objective - power. He must be stopped.

Fourth on the list is especially relevant. This admin despises any personal success, or an individual,who somehow finds a way to survive amidst all the onerous regulations.
OMG! they are really doing THAT! Emergency -- we must immediately impose (yet another) new regulation! Last on the list -- I´m a Luddite when it comes to history -- is another interesting parallel (Blame your predecessor).
Again, and apologies for the redundancy, but the article does indeed draw some very interesting parallels.
Good article. Can´t imagine anyone who wouldn´t make some kind of uncomfortable connection to Obama...I say let´s educate ´em.
FTA: "In denouncing opponents, Lenin was obsessive, virulent and personal, calling them "bloodsuckers," "insects," "spiders," "leeches" and "vampires." (Obama´s class warfare comes to mind)
"The murder of Czar Nicholas II and his family was termed "a humane act." (Phony scandals anyone?)
"Then there were "hoarders," "wreckers," "saboteurs" and, worst of all, "Kulaks" — the prosperous and industrious peasants of whom Lenin spoke only "with the most seething hatred," as Volkogonov put it. (Obama´s "bitter clingers")
"Lenin also took title to the word "democracy," disarming opponents who were then unable to project a coherent message. By controlling words, Lenin controlled perceptions of reality."
THIS is exactly why it is so important to at least try and defund Obamacare...spread the perception that Obama could be WRONG. We need opposition now more than ever.
Yes indeed. I like to think of our current situation in even more historical terms - the decline of Rome.
1 - the Senate becomes sidelined and is used only for form´s sake.
2- The currency is devalued
3 - Citizenship is freely given to provincials (primarily to lessen the value of such citizenship as embodied in the Senate.)
4 - Non-Romans from the provinces are appointed Emperor (!)
5 - Punitive taxation and confiscation of wealthy citizen´s property
6 - Plebes/military are bought off
And on and on. Apologies for the syntax and so forth but some things never change, including, it seems to me, politics, and this piece de merde is a Caesar without the smarts - just a bitter socialist wanting to bring down "the man," in current vernacular.
Monica ShoWalter definely got the point, but neglected to mention the news that Lenin was probably an individual in the early phase of syphilis when he carried out his great coup (because his great revolutionary wife Natalya Krupskaya was so ugly and he had to patronize prostitutes when he was taking his comfortable Russian prison terms and early Russian and European exile vacations. As the syphilis progressed, he and his psychopathic followers became bloodthirstier and bloodthirstier. His syphilis ultimately led to his total incapacitation, which ultimately led to the triumph of Stalin (who was evil in every sense of the word, but not insane). It was only Stalin´s evil but lack of insanity (at least until the late 40s) that led to his triumph over Hitler (who was equally evil and insane).
Well, it´s no coincidence that we´re nearing "Red October". Obama and his neo-Bolsheviks have purposely been stirring up class and race hatreds so that when the money (i.e., debt limit) runs out, his followers will take to the streets and complete the "fundamental transformation of America".
Check your ammo inventory. We´re going to need it.

But error was never admitted and his New Economic Plan proved just a breather ahead of even worse horrors to come under Joseph Stalin.

Good thing our Fourth Estate, education system, entertainment industry, and most of the GOP leaders don´t walk in complete and total lockstep with Obama and his policies, otherwise we´d never recover. And it´s also a good thing we haven´t forced illiteracy upon the last two generations via schools, entertainment and the press, otherwise they´d believe Obama´s propaganda.
Propaganda is a product of conflicting belief and a desire to spread own doctrine. It needs censorship to control communication. Propaganda works with all communications: film, radio, TV, marketing, advertising, P.R., internet, social media, telephones, etc. Basic rules: 1. Simplification--a conflict between good and evil, friend and foe. 2. Disfiguration--discredit opposition with smears, parodies, lies. 3. Transfiguration--manipulate consensus values of target audience to one´s own end. 4. Unanimity--present viewpoint as unanimous opinion of all right thinkers, draw doubters into agreement with star performers, social pressure, psychology. 5, Orchestration--endless repeating same message in different variations, combinations. Covertly directed propaganda uses unsuspecting agents as if independent. False coincidence of views transforms opinion makers. Use "fellow travelers," "useful idiots."
The comparison to this communist would no doubt be considered a badge of courage for dear leader. He just thinks he knows how to better implement it. Shocking that the communists have been so effective in doing what they promised. Defeating us from within.
This is just a history lesson but very different from today. We are even different from the 1990´s Clinton era. News is faster and social media keeps us connected to like minded people. We almost don´t need news readers because some things are viewed in real time. Obama unlike Lenin and Hitler has to contend with armed citizens because of the pesky Second Amendment. It´s very different and we are not ignorant peasants in the country side. We have to review history from time to time least we forget how tyrants gain power.
The part about Lenin proclaiming Bolsheviks or majoritarians is particularly relative: Even though Obama only won the electoral college by 2.3% in 2012, he still says he won the election,so ACA is the will of the people, when defending against defunding. ha ha some mandate.
I posted several quotes by Lenin on CL/Politics earlier this year and captioned it "Obama channels Lenin" and received -5 and vile counter attacks by the lefties, especially CA. Some of the URL´s I referenced were later scrubbed. They definitely don´t like the comparison. Too bad-truth hurts.
These words came to my mind. Obama fits all of them Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Thanks to Lucianne for this Monica Showalter writing that brilliantly brings into focus the ruthless beginnings of violent COMMUNISM, the one single word that everybody in the administration, press, TVnews media, academe and especially all of Hollywood filmdom, NEVER wants to mention.
Especially guilty Hollywood, dictates that the masses, the great film going masses will never know anything about Stalinist Soviet tyranny, famine, mass murder, world aggression, gulag enslavement to death. Hollywood brilliantly keeps it a complete secret, no, not one anti communist film allowed, while Washington slowly stealthily constructs its own communist power. Allen West recently declared, "There are 80 communists in Congress", and nobody listened, commented, reacted. Time to study and absorb articles like the genius of Monica Showalter´s work above. Thanks to the intellectually pure Lucianne.
Simple proposition. Divide the country into the haves and have nots. Use community organizing tactics to create hatred of the haves. Create an event such as ending the food stamp program. Blame it on haves. Pass out pitchforks.
I remember how you Republicans were saying ´get over it´ to Democrats back in 2001. You Republicans lost. Get over it. btw you lost Harris, Dallas, Bexar, Travis, and El Paso Counties both in 2008 and 2012.
In her brilliant Monica Showalter article below, is this most frightening paragraph of Leninist communist propaganda …… “Perhaps the most disturbing means of propaganda against Russia´s mostly illiterate population was the use of example as part of a reign of terror. Public hangings and shootings served as well as any written material to force Russians into submission. "These swine have to be dealt with so that everyone will remember it for years," Lenin wrote. Terror wasn´t confined to those who defied Lenin. "We must execute not only the guilty. Execution of the innocent will impress the masses even more," wrote Lenin´s commissar for justice, according to historian Brian Crozier in his 1999 "The Rise and Fall of the Soviet Empire." See below
It isn’t difficult to extrapolate that we are now being attacked by our own government with regularly scheduled mass shootings of innocent people. It is straight out of the early communist, Leninist handbook, as carefully described above by Monica Showalter. Jon Rappoport, and many other early investigative journalists, call these terrifying events, “Ops”. “Special Operations”, planned as carefully and secretly as the much earlier JFK and MLK’s assassinations, WACO and OKLAHOMA. Each of today’s mass killings is followed by mystery, unanswered questions about the killer or killers, the weapons used, always contradicted truth from early aired local witnesses, never do we get excellent information, never do we discover the criminals. What we do get, swiftly, automatedly, in massive doses of propaganda from the likes of Feinstein, Schumer, Obama and Bloomberg, is anti gun ownership fear mongering. As Jon Rappoport writes on his longtime site, www.nomorefakenews.com, these mass killings all started with our own government’s drug experiments with MK ULTRA, imported from paos WWII Germany´s scientists. Believe it, study it, with Jon and with other reliable sources. We are being brutalized with fear “ops”, and most of our own press and media propagandists are fearful of even discussing it. Monica’s communist defining article lloks to be the most important single, on target, article of this year.
What Obama believes and what he espouses are two different things. We can readily hear what he says and estimate its effect and even intent, e.g. It´s all about manipulation of the LoFo´s. However, determining what he really believes may be a fools errand and not entirely useful. Think of all the time spent trying to ´´understand´´ the character. Watch what he says (for its effect) and what he actually does. Leave his unspoken world view to the historians.
The brilliant Monica Showalter refers to three books Volkogonov, LENIN: Life and Legacy, Brian Crozier, RISE AND FALL OF SOVIET EMPIRE and Peter Kenez, BIRTH OF THE PROPAGANDA STATE, And this L dotter adds that a quick look at Wikipedia will give you instant access to an overview on Cleon Skousen’s 1958 classic THE NAKED COMMUNIST, and also, herewith the address for his LIST of predictions of 45 communist techniques for all Americans to look for http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm Imagine, over 50 years ago, Skousen could envision the pending disaster coming in the future … the disaster, the purposely silent epidemic that is upon us NOW. Thank you, Lucianne for your awakening spirit!

On Friday we analyzed a fatuous article in which the Washington Post´s Ryan Cooper tried to reassure his left-liberal readers that they needn´t worry about the next phase of the ObamaCare disaster--that is, the third phase, known as "adverse selection." Adverse selection will occur when young, healthy adults fail to purchase insurance at inflated prices, which ObamaCare needs them to do to sustain the artificially low premiums of the middle-aged and those with pre-existing conditions. Well, you´ll never guess who´s terrified of adverse selection. "Only 29% of uninsured young people now say they plan to sign up for Obamacare," warns an

House-Senate negotiators are close to a modest budget accord to avoid another government shutdown, but suddenly the White House is introducing a last-minute demand. Five years into an economic recovery that President Obama often hails as miraculous, he wants to extend unemployment benefits one more time. Maybe it´s time to consider whether the big expansion of unemployment insurance has increased joblessness. In 2009 the Obama Administration and Congress extended jobless benefits for up to 99 weeks. The point was to help people through the recession, but now the jobless rate is 7%, down from 10%, and the White House still wants
Media: Russian ruler Vladimir Putin dissolved his state news agency on Monday, apparently for being insufficiently fawning. President Obama doesn´t have to worry about that with the dominant media here. The ex-KGB officer ruling an eighth of the planet´s inhabited land for nearly a decade and a half now, with no end in sight thanks to rigged elections, has abolished RIA Novosti and replaced it with a kind of reborn Radio Moscow. "Radio Putin," as it should be called, will propagandize to the rest of the world. RIA actually described the purge it is victim of as heralding "a tightening of state
Hysteria: The British Daily Star reports that Britain is in for 30 years of extreme "killer winter storms" due to climate change. There is, of course, no way anyone can know this for sure.

The same cult of personality is creeping into lesson plans and reading materials being created under the guise of the platform for
I read at Breitbart that the Satan-worshipping group Satanic Temple wants its very own statue outside the Oklahoma Statehouse in Oklahoma City alongside a Ten Commandments monument. USA Today reports that the Republican legislature invited such insidious activity by authorizing the privately funded Ten Commandments statue on the Capitol grounds. If they were to decline the commission of a Satanic icon, it could constitute an unconstitutional infringement on the First Amendment. The ACLU has already filed a lawsuit for the removal of the monument. As Lucien Greaves, the spokesman for Satanic Temple,
TWO THINGS ALL conservatives love are narratives of decline and talking about conservatism. Put those together and you have the popular argument that conservatism ain’t what it used to be. The chart of that supposed decline, if you were to draw it Ascent of Man style, would start with Edmund Burke looking intelligent and walking upright, followed by William F. Buckley as Australopithecus, slouching. The present age would be represented by some knuckle-dragging, prognathous creature like Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. First comes very smart, then pretty smart, and then not very smart at all. Some of those on the right
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.

The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was

However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell believes the United States should have a socialized, single-payer healthcare system similar to those in Canada and Europe. “I think universal health care is one of the things we should really be focused on, and I hope that will happen,” Powell reportedly said last week. “Whether it’s Obamacare, or son of Obamacare, I don’t care. As long as we get it done.” The Puget Sound Business Journal reported Powell´s remarks at the Prostate Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast at the University of Washington´s Cancer Research Center.
