The Question...Part 4

"What If Glenn's Right?"

If Glenn is right, and he has been spot-on thus far, then there are some extremely dark days ahead of us. The words of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Alinsky, Ayers, Cloward and Piven are all coming true RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.

Barack Obama has made it quite clear that he is a Socialist from the earliest days of his candidacy for President. His comment to Joe the Plumber about "spreading the wealth" being good for everyone (except those whose wealth you are taking)...his classic "You, know, at some point in time, you've made enough money"...or the keynote "I refuse to be part of a system that lets the well-off keep millions of extra income".

Barack Obama has shown open disdain for the capitalist system that has allowed his financial success, and outright loathing of the Constitution, seeing it as an impediment to accomplishing that which HE deems important. Now that he doesn't have majorities in both Houses of Congress to ram his legislative agenda down the throats of the American people, he is turning to Executive Orders to accomplish by dictatorial fiat what he can't accomplish through the process that our Founding Fathers put in place to rein in Executive power.

Barack Obama's past and current affiliations, the words from his own mouth, and his every action as President have convinced me that his goal is utter destruction of the American capitalist and system and Constitutional Republic.

COLLAPSE THE SYSTEM - The Cloward/Piven strategy

The "Occupy" crowds are nothing more than the pawns of the Progressives. Their primary functions are to (a) clog up the legal system and (b) provoke authorities into stiffer measures and sanctions. Former SEIU President Steven Lerner has clearly stated to the union workers, community organizers and students that "we are the heroes, who need to create a crisis." And, if "the power of persuasion doesn't work, then [we] are prepared to use the persuasion of power".

Van Jones, a self-avowed Communist and former adviser to President Obama, has described it as the "bottom-up, top-down, inside-out" process of revolutionary change. The bottom rises up (the "Occupiers"), the top comes down (martial law), and then the system is turned inside out (the peasants revolt).

Never mind that George Soros' numerous organizations are funding the "Occupiers", the thing to keep in mind is: Who is siding with the "Occupy" movement? President Obama, who has already given them "street cred", the mayors who are tolerating them, most Democrat lawmakers, and wealthy celebrities.

The TEA Party and the Occupy movement share a common frustration with the bond between Government and Big Business...the difference, however, is the course of action that each group desires. The TEA Party seeks to reform both, the Occupiers seek to destroy both. President Obama and most of the Democrat lawmakers have sided with the latter.

Some closing thoughts from history's leaders:

"It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed." - Vladimir Lenin

"He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." - Adolf Hitler

"The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property." - Karl Marx

"I am not a Marxist." - Karl Marx

"A lie told often enough becomes the truth." - Vladimir Lenin

"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever." - Vladimir Lenin

"The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency." - Vladimir Lenin

"The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses." - Vladimir Lenin

"All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach." - Adolf Hitler

"To rely upon conviction, devotion, and other excellent spiritual qualities; that is not to be taken seriously in politics." - Vladimir Lenin

"There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel." - Vladimir Lenin

"Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism." - Vladimir Lenin

"The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion." - Karl Marx

The Question...Part 3

"What If Glenn's Right?"

George Soros is on the record as stating that "the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States." So why would 11 of our more liberal elected officials be seeking out this man's advice?

If you apply the principle of Occam's Razor--that the explanation with the fewest assumptions is generally the correct one--then the evidence indicates those 11 agree with the belief that America *IS* the problem.

The evidence suggests that there are people at the highest levels of our government who see America as Soros does. What would it take to eliminate that MAIN OBSTACLE TO A STABLE AND JUST WORLD ORDER?

America's strength has always been the U.S. Constitution. Those "powers-that-be" that see America as the problem know the protection mechanisms that the Founding Fathers put throughout it. So they utilize the second principle of demolition, maximizing it's weakness...WE THE PEOPLE.

First, redefine history. Cast the Founding Fathers as a bunch of rich, greedy, old white slaveholders who raped a continent for their own benefit, and repeat, repeat, repeat until it becomes the accepted "truth". That way, every piece of wisdom that they tried to impart upon us becomes null and void.

Second, remove all references to God and the Bible from public discourse. The masses must be shielded from the discriminatory and selfish values of thrift, chastity, virtue and self-reliance. Therefore, our "rights" are given to us by our government and not some "fictitious" benevolent deity.

Third, treat capitalism as an evil "zero-sum" is finite, therefore the wealth of the few must have been taken from the many. Therefore, the wealthy must be taxed at a higher rate so that it can be "redistributed" back to those who it was initially taken from.

Fourth, create so many obscure and hazily worded "circular reference" laws that no man knows from one day to the next that which is legal and that which is not. By criminalizing the natural and decriminalizing the unnatural, you create a society of sheep amongst a government of wolves.

Last, but not least, create a powder keg of subdivided, angry groups and toss in the match.

The Question...Part 2

"What if Glenn's right?"

The easiest ways to demolish a physical structure, whether it be a building, a stadium or a bridge is to (a) remove it's strength, or (b) maximize it's weakness. The demolition of Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium was accomplished by the first method...explosives were placed at critical structural points throughout the facility and sequentially detonated so that the entire structure was unable support itself. NYC's Twin Towers, however, were destroyed by capitalizing on their weaknesses...the sheer height of the buildings, knowing that asbestos insulation was not applied to the steel structure of the upper floors due to an April 1970 ban, and the logistical difficulty associated with getting enough water, people and equipment to those heights in a crowded skyscraper full of panicked people.

The process is called REVERSE ENGINEERING--how to achieve a desired outcome within existing constraints. So how would those, so inclined, demolish a society? By using a combination of the techniques described above.

The easiest way to destroy a society is to wait. Left to their own, past empires/great societies have always collapsed, whether under the weight of their government or by outright revolt of the governed. Rarely is it a single event, but rather a standard progression over a period of decades, commonly called the Tytler cycle: The age of outburst (or pioneers), conquests, commerce, affluence, intellect, decadence, decline and collapse.

I'm sure the Athenians, the Persians, the Romans, the Ottomans, the Nazis and the Soviets have all said "It can't happen here." History, my friends, says CAN happen here. It IS happening here, right in front of our faces. How is it possible to continue repeating the mistakes of the past?

The Question No One Seems To Be Asking...

The Middle East is on fire...The Hong Kong Stock Market is now trading gold bullion in Chinese Yuan rather than US Dollars...Europe is collapsing financially..."Arab Spring"-style protests will spread...Now the US Government plans to SHUT DOWN broadcast TV and radio NATIONWIDE to "test" the Emergency Alert System on November 9...and the hits, errrr, HINTS just keep a-coming.

There is one person that comes to mind that has been saying that EVERY ONE of things was going to happen. Glenn Beck was always called a kook, nutcase, conspiracy theorist, lush, and every other name in the book. Never an acknowledgment from the so-called "educated elites" of the observations as they came to pass. None of them asked...

"What If Glenn's Right?"

Throughout the run of his 5 PM television show, he constantly admonished his viewers to "do your OWN homework". I have done much of own homework and research, and have come to some very dark conclusions. In the interest of full disclosure, these are MY conclusions and I offer the same advice that Mr. Beck your OWN homework.

I have learned frequently and sometimes painfully that the best predictor of the future is the past. This road that America is currently on has been traveled before...the warnings are evident to those of us who have studied history. The only difference is the technology.

In spite of what's happening around the world, the major source of unrest here in America has revolved around one name...George Soros. In September 2004, Barney Frank, Sherrod Brown and future Presidential Chief-Of-Staff Rahm Emmanuel invited the wealthy financier to Capitol Hill to discuss "important policy issues" and the best way to move forward towards the Soros ideals of an "open and fair society" and "economic...and social equity both here and in the rest of the world".

Two years later, as the 110th Congress was sworn in, with Nancy Pelosi wielding the gavel in the House of Representatives and Harry Reid taking leadership of the Senate. The first Muslim, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) also took his seat. It was during this time that the stepping stones of the 2008 economic collapse were put into place, largely through the vehicles of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the "abandonment of free-market principles to save the free market" called TARP.

The Banks Aren't Entirely To Blame...

Blaming the banks for all of our financial woes is akin to blaming pizza for obesity. Granted, a fabulous meat-lover's pizza with a stuffed-cheese crust isn't something that a marathon runner is likely to chomp on the night before a race, but pizza joints thrive because they have a product that people like, and therefore, want.

Now, the government steps in and dictates what "living wage" a pizza joint owner has to pay his employees, the mandatory healthcare coverage he has to provide, and posting of government-mandated nutritional information. The pizza shop owner has to offset those costs by either raising his prices or lowering the quality of the pies.

Let's say the government decides that EVERYONE should have a house, and directs the banks to loan money to those who MAY NOT have the capability to fulfill the terms of the loan. You know, like no steady job history, past credit difficulties, things like that. The banks have shareholders that they have to answer to, so they create a new group of financial instruments called MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITIES (let's say, 5 good loans, some precious metals stocks and 2 "questionable" loans) to rid themselves of these potentially "toxic" assets. They sold them short to other investors who were hoping that the overall package would net them a profit in spite of the questionable "paper" or loans within the package.

Then the government cracked down on these financial "instruments", forcing the banks to cover their losses on all the empty properties that they were now stuck with, by raising their prices or lowering the quality of their product.

Notice the underlying theme here? Every time government tries to "help us out", we end up getting screwed with either higher prices or lower quality. The "Occupy" protesters need to focus their anger on the source of the problem...the politicians who are screwing us all in the name of "fairness".

"We've Come A Long Way...But..."

What does conservative Fox News political analyst Angela McGlowan have in common with Reverend "God DAMN the U.S.K.K.K. of A." Jeremiah Wright? Besides skin color, they both believe that it is possible to correct the "mistakes of the past". Her words during a television interview this morning echo the Black Liberation Theology teachings of Dr. James Cone, which dictates that true salvation can only come as a group, by overwhelming the "oppressors".

Dr. Cone states that "Whether the American system is beyond redemption we will have to wait and see. But we can be certain that black patience has run out, and unless white America responds positively to the theory and activity of Black Power, then a bloody, protracted civil war is inevitable."

The true irony? On this day the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial is being dedicated. These teachings are the antithesis of what he preached! He looked to the future in which his kids would be judged "by the content of their character, not the color of their skin".

Demanding Change...

The problem with "Crony Capitalism" is the "cronies", not the "capitalism"...a point that the protesters and their allies in the Mainstream Media continuously choose to ignore.

Former administrations are just as guilty of it as the current occupant of the Oval Office. To inaccurately quote an old country tune, "you dance with the one that brung ya".

Consider Crony #1, President Obama's "Jobs Czar", GE chairman Jeff Immelt. GE offshored billions in profit and paid $0 in corporate taxes in 2010. Consider the technology that GE has provided to Iran for their "peaceful" nuclear power program, or the aircraft engine subdivision that GE has moved to China.

The problem with the "Occupy" folks is NOT that they are demonstrating their right to assemble, but what many of them are demanding; the end of capitalism. They fail to understand that removing any chance of failure can only be accomplished by also eliminating any opportunity to succeed. Is that the change that YOU are HOPING for?

As Goes Civility, So Goes Civilization...

This is a snippet from one (of many, I'm sure) conversation flowing around the internet regarding Andrew Breitbart's trip to the "Occupy LA" cesspool of idiocy. It highlights a common theme of intolerance practiced by those who claim to be the tolerant half of society.

These were the 4 newest (and least profane) entries on The Blaze's website.

Pablo: "screams of HEAVILY EDITED in 5,4,3,2..."

Joe: " is conservative spin just like there is liberal spin. i just wish lil andy would come out of the closet..that is my biggest problem with these guys. andy is 100% gay --he creates mountains out of mole hills and the only reason he has any air time at all is fox news--just like beck. anywhere else on the planet--these guys are jokers..closet homosexual jokers..i dare any one of you REAL men to watch lil andy and tell me--he is straight---you cannot ...i had said before and i will say it again---why are conservative straight men so much more gay than liberal gay men?
that is the question of the times~"

Ardiva: "...also, andy likes his booze too much."

Pablo (in reply to joe): "So, you want to have sex with Breitbart, joe? He's kinda married. I think you're out of luck." -- (3 people liked this)

Icabod (in reply to Pablo): "Isn't be [sic] married the cover up for most of the closeted republican gays?"

This thread highlights the futility of intellectual debate with mental midgets. The commentor Joe went astray after his first sentence. Once he got away from talking about the point at hand, which was the Beritbart video, he went straight for unfounded and baseless character assassination. Tossing out all logic and reason, he calls (by all appearances) a happily-married man with children a "closet homosexual". Then he goes on to call *all* conservatives homosexuals!

For some reason, likely extrapolation of self-loathing, commentors Ardiva and Icabod chime in with their individual two cents' worth...they must have invested in the HOPE AND CHANGE mantra, and are left with just change. The threads disintegrated from there into incoherent profanity-laced tirades and personal attacks on each other and subsequent commentors.

Nancy Pelosi and Whoopi Goldberg have both reignited a much-debunked "spitting" incident, adhering to the Marxist mantra of repeating a lie unchallenged often enough that it becomes the truth. The sad reality is that a lie is a lie no matter how many people believe it, whereas the truth is the truth no matter how few actually dig for it. Many of the commentors in the above threads challenged Breitbart's "journalism". Journalism used to mean hunting for the truth using the basic six W questions--WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHEN, WHERE and HOW? These days, journalism has degraded into a paparazzi sideshow that is less about digging for and reporting the truth and more about getting it out there first and how will it boost ratings. At least Breitbart is courageous enough to dig for the truth, regardless of the verbal slams and personal attacks.

Isn't bullying illegal? Whiteville, TN...FIGHT BACK!

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is the nation's largest association of atheists and agnostics, and has set their sights on the town of Whiteville, Tennessee...more specifically, a cross atop a water tower.

Whiteville Mayor James Bellar needs and deserves all of our support in standing up against yet another fraudulent claim of a First Amendment violation. He has authorized the Alliance Defense Fund to look into the merits of the case, citing sincere doubt as to whether the complainant was a taxpaying resident of Whiteville.

The foundation sent another letter to town officials on Wednesday cautioning them against accepting legal representation from the Alliance Defense Fund: "The best resolution of the dispute over the water tower cross is by removing it without the need for costly and protracted litigation. The town must consider the substantial costs involved in litigating an issue that is settled by the courts. When we won a case again Rhea County Schools in Tennessee for unlawful religious instruction in its schools, the District Court awarded over $120,000 for plaintiffs' attorney fees and costs. This amount does not include substantial defense costs. This amount was separate from the substantial fees paid to Rhea County's defense lawyers."

All these cases are based on the false premise of separation of church and state, WHICH EXISTS NOWHERE IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION OR ANY OF THE 27 AMENDMENTS TO IT! The clause in question reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

This is the primary tactic of the secular Progressives who are destroying our country one cross, one liberty, one small town at a time. It is time for us to stand up to this rabid minority with COMMON SENSE and and UNITY OF PURPOSE. Any judge that doesn't throw out a case like this needs to be run out of town!

Our Economic Trajectory...

ZW$100,000,000,000,000.00 -- A single, legal tender bank note, that is numerically 5x our current national debt. In Zimbabwe, it is much more valuable as insulation or toilet paper, since you can't buy insulation or toilet paper with it.

(From Wikipedia) In 1980, ZW$ 1.00 was equal to US$ 1.47. The currency's value eroded rapidly over the years, and in 2006 was "redenominated" to a value of (new)ZW$1.00 = (old)ZW$1000.00.

On 27 June 2007, it was announced that central bank governor Gideon Gono had been ordered by President Robert Mugabe to print an additional ZW$1 trillion to cater for civil servants' and soldiers' salaries that were hiked by 600% and 900% respectively.
On 28 July 2007, it was reported that Mugabe has said that Zimbabwe will go on printing money if there is not enough for underfunded municipal projects.

Rampant hyperinflation continued, and the currency was again "redenominated" in 2007 and 2008. Ten zeroes have already been knocked off the denomination. As predicted by the quantity theory of money, this hyperinflation has been caused primarily by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe's choice to mushroom the money supply.

In Federal Reserve terms, it's called "Quantitative Easing (QE)"...we have already gone through 2 "known", or publicly-announced rounds of this EXACT SAME POLICY. Too many dollars chasing too few goods makes each dollar--read the next very carefully--worth less. Even more of this Keynesian policy removes the space, and it becomes WORTHLESS.

History repeating itself? The 1919-1933 Weimar Republic is another example of this. It seems that we refuse to learn from the mistakes of the past...unless, of course, it is the plan.
