Obama's agenda: Overwhelm the system

Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency.

Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.Â

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."

-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.

Homeland Security: Stop, Drop, and Cower

Stop, Drop, and Cower

A handy dandy informational pamphlet form our fiends friends at Homeland Security.

Click on this image to see the full pamphlet

The first panel offers advice to the subject, formerly the citizen, who encounters a government agent from NSA, BATFE, or IRS, to name just three agencies you might bump into. The text reads:

Three simple actions could save your life! Any time you are in the presence of a government agent, remember this RULE OF THREE:

STOP — Any action can be considered threatening by a government agent.

DROP — This allows the agent to quickly gain control of the area.

COWER — There is no redress for any “wrong” done to you: this is because the action of a government agent is always right, his judgment correct, and his intellect unsurpassed.

Mastering the principles behind these actions will ensure that your interactions with government agents are simple undemanding, and pleasant.

Other advice about how to comport yourself around a government agent includes:

— Never make sudden movements around a government agent. Any voluntary action on your part can be considered Resisting Arrest, Obstruction, or Disturbing the Peace.

— Abase yourself! You must realize that your personal well-being hangs on the agent’s discretion.

— Submit! You are nothing but a worm. There is no peace, there is no justice, there is only our utter and absolute domination of every aspect of your life.

And the pamphlet closes with:

Anything you say or don’t say can and will be used against you in a secret court operating above the law!

For full effect, download the Stop, Drop, and Cower pamphlet here, read it, and come back to comment.

Remember this moto:  "We're from The Government and we're here to help you"

Oh - by the way;
Anything you say, type on a computer, whisper on the telephone, send in a text, post on a website, read online, or another electronic communication of any kind will be used against you in a kangaroo court of law.

Save the Planet - Eat a Vegan

Obama Supports Muslim Brotherhood. Equates Sharia atrocities to America's Revolution. Burn, baby, Burn!

 President Obama is beating the drum for the murderous Anti-American Muslim Brotherhood. His recent statements make clear his affinity for the philosophy of "Stokely Charmichael.  Remember him?  
 Carmichael: ''When you talk of black power, you talk of building a movement that will smash everything Western civilization has created, with riots and guns and 'burn, baby, burn .' ''
 Quote Obama:
 “Countries that are transitioned out of a military government towards a democratic government and it did not always go in a straight line and the process went smooth. Um. There are going to be false starts. There will be difficult days. America’s democratic journey took us through some mighty struggles to perfect our union.”

Unable to pull himself away from the pool, golf course, or this week's "body man," President Obama released an audio (no video) statement of his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Obama announced that the United States is cancelling its bi-annual joint military exercise with Egypt.

Christians continue to pray in St. Tadros church in AlMinia in southern Egypt even after Muslims torched and destroyed it.

The Muslim Brotherhood camps/sit-ins were stockpiling weapons, torturing activists seeking to leave, exploiting women and children, and inciting violence. Brotherhood supporters were firing on soldiers and police. Brotherhood supporters destroyed scores of churches yesterday and today continue to chant, "with our blood, our souls we will defend Islam." Not Egypt, Islam.

Obama has done nothing to end the slaughter of non-Muslims under the sharia or protect the Christians in Egypt. Instead, he supports the savages.

John Bolton today in The NY Daily News: The Muslim Brotherhood is no friend of democracy

Egypt’s security forces have now moved decisively to eliminate Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo, producing the bloodshed foretold by daily confrontations between the Brotherhood’s supporters and opponents. Six weeks after the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, Egypt remains deeply and violently divided — and American policy is confused and irresolute.

While confusion and irresolution are nothing new to the Obama administration, this is not the place to dither or make strategic mistakes. We must define precisely what U.S. priorities are in light of Egypt’s strategic significance, and given the potential for protracted hostilities there between armed combatants.

By identifying our interests, we can concentrate our energies and resources on advancing them in practical ways, avoiding an essentially academic debate over issues we can’t significantly influence. Because our resources are not unlimited, we have to focus our political time and attention, as well as our more tangible assets and capabilities, where they can do the most good.

First, Egypt’s continued adherence to the 1979 Camp David peace agreements with Israel is essential. Anwar Sadat’s courageous decision to negotiate directly with Israel was critical not only to establishing this foundation of America’s overall Middle East policy, but also evidenced Egypt’s momentous shift, after the death of longtime dictator Gamal Abdel Nasser, away from the Soviet Union. Sadat’s sea change in allegiance provided an opening the U.S. used to undermine Moscow’s extensive regional influence, and was an early sign that the Cold War was entirely winnable.

In 1981, the Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Sadat for his troubles, reflecting that then, as now, the Brotherhood has only contempt for Egyptian leaders who seek peace with Israel. If Morsi had enjoyed only a slightly longer tenure in office, he would likely have abrogated Camp David entirely. The treaty’s demise would have even further reduced U.S. influence throughout the Middle East, renewed opportunities for anti-American, anti-Israeli radicals and increased threats to friendly Arab regimes prepared to live with Egyptian (and Jordanian) peace treaties with Israel. Make no mistake, if Washington takes Camp David for granted, it will disappear, and quickly.

Second, the economically vital Suez Canal runs through Egypt. If passage is blocked, as it was in the 1956 Suez Canal crisis, or for years after the 1967 Six-Day War, Europe and America will suffer, and so will Egypt. Already, 21/2 years of domestic instability have made the Sinai Peninsula a haven for terrorists and devastated Egypt’s economy, with both foreign investment and tourism revenues plummeting.

Get ready for an Audit from the IRS, Mr. Reed

An Open Letter to President Barack Obama from Eric Reed President of GRAA

Dear President Obama:

I am just one man, but a man who has freedom in his heart. And the dream of every American is to live free, peaceably, and without fear, in a nation that millions have immigrated to because the United States of America gave them what their nation couldn’t. But yet I along with millions of other Americans hearts are bleeding as we watch you single-handedly attempt to destroy not just the core values of America, but the entire Bill of Rights itself.

The only difference between me and those other millions and millions of Americans that despise your policies, is that I stood up. I decided that I could no longer live with myself without not only standing up, but also inspiring many others to stand as well. And I truly hope that this short letter finds you well through the miracles of social media, because my true purpose of this is to thank you.

You see Mr. Obama, if I wasn’t glued to my TV on that horrific day in December, I’d probably still be a “sleeping zombie.” But when I sat in front of that TV in tears with my wife, tears for those innocent children who were taken from their families long before they should’ve been, I would have never seen you addressing the nation with your fake tears, turning that tragedy into nothing more than a ludicrous ploy to push your ridiculous political agenda. But when you did that, sir, you changed something in me, like the flip of a light switch turning on for the first time. You ignited a fire in the very depths of my soul; and at that instant, I realized why I was put on this earth. And you’ll be interested to know that things have gone very successfully. When you thought you were tapping into Americans’ emotions on that December afternoon, there were many others who saw right through you. The push for gun rights in our great nation has never been stronger. You can try all you like, Mr. President, but America will always prevail. Because in the words of our founding fathers, “We The People” run this nation; not you!

Now we both know that your gun control agenda will accomplish nothing. After all, sir, you’re a very well educated man, an attorney, and the most powerful man in the free world. So surely, you and I both know that criminals don’t follow any law, any rule, any ordinance, or any policy. That’s why they’re called criminals.

This little organization that I started (Gun Rights Across America) right after the Sandy Hook tragedy motivated 150,000 Americans to stand with me on Jan. 19th at every statehouse in all 50 states, and now we have nearly a quarter of a million followers nationwide. No small task in just 7 months. And the reason for that is I have vowed to listen to the people, to listen to America, and they have clearly spoken. Perhaps you too should listen. WE DON’T WANT ANY NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY!

As long as you occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. attempting to explain how a tragedy occurred because of law abiding Americans guns, how America will be so much safer with laws that address how to disarm law abiding citizens but not criminals, and as long as I still have oxygen in my lungs, I’ll be in your shadows banging our drum as loud as we can for the good American people to hear. Because you may have been successful at breaking our economy, but YOU WILL NEVER BREAK AMERICA!

Respectfully yours,
Eric Reed

Mindless Facebook Sheep are Mind-Numbing

A great post by "Chicks on the Right".

These Chicks make two great points -
  • the first examines knee-jerk behavior of facebook sheeple, and 
  • the second is how the sheeple herders decide to which slaughterhouse their flock will be led.

One of the Best Days in My Life was When I Got a Job as a Dishwasher -

 Yes, it is true.  I was a sophomore in High School way back in the dark ages of 1969.  An announcement came over the intercom that the Elks Club had an opening for a dishwasher.  I ducked out of Mrs. Cooney's Spanish class and applied immediately fearing that there was little to no chance that I would be the lucky one.

Hosannah!  I got the job!

It paid the princely sum of $1.60 per hour, plus all I could eat at one of the finest restaurants in town.  Sometimes, if I was lucky, the waitresses would give me a share of their tips for bussing the tables on a busy night.

I kept that part-time job for more than 2 years, and it supplemented my earnings as a mower of lawns, changer of hand lines for a couple of the local farmers, and loading bundles of newspapers at the Tri-City Herald loading dock . 

Yep, I was ecstatic to take any job I could find to fill my tank with 39-cent gasoline and add a few bucks to my college fund.

(Alas, Mrs. Cooney; I still no habla espanol)
