"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," said Obama on July 2, 2008. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."[Source]
"A socialist is a communist who really means it." - Anonymous
Think about Hitler's Brownshirts and the Nazi Youth of the Third Reich. Think about Mao's Peoples Army in China. President Obama would form a "civilian national security force" that would be "just as strong, just as well-funded" as the US military! If you have a brain and even a slight sense of modern history, that should scare the living hell out of you. It smacks of a gargantuan, monolithic vigilante group that would be well armed and under the command of a small group of elites. This would either happen after all Americans are completely disarmed or it would be used to assist the Government in disarming us all. And that, comrade, would be end of any semblance of freedom.
A faithful reader sent a link to an important article from Investors Business Daily (IBD). Along with the link, he wrote, "Tom, What you've been saying all along." A legion of people have long recognized the radical Marxist agenda and realized, more recently, that Barack Obama and a number of his political allies are part and parcel of the agenda's implementation.
The IBD column starts by noting that "Barack Obama speaks passionately about something called 'economic justice.' He uses the term obliquely, though, speaking in code — socialist code."
Barack Obama wants "change," but change is not always good. There is a long list of leaders who brought positive change to the world, but plenty more who gave us change in the form of living nightmares. Hitler brought "change." So did Mao, Genghis Khan, Mussolini, and so on. The Taliban brought "change" to Afghanistan. Barack Obama promises "change," but he only hints at the kind of change he promises. It is not democratic. It is socialist.
The socialist - even communist - type of change that an Obama Administration would bring would be another step toward full blown, authoritarian, freedom-crushing collectivism.
People often roll their eyes when they are confronted with conspiracy theory. I'm one of those, depending upon with theory is being presented. However, the conspiratorial nature of the world's socialist/communist movers is not theory at all, although many dismiss as such. It is fact, easily provable with a small amount of reading and an afternoon of research. Although some of his methods may have been distasteful, the late U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) was absolutely correct when, just after Word War Two, he warned America about the creeping infiltration of communism and of communists into the system of government.
The VENONA Project files, declassified in 1995, provided indisputable evidence that nearly all of those McCarthy accused were traitors to America. Not surprisingly, the media ignored these documents completely, instead choosing to run yet another round of anti-McCarthy propaganda.... The anti-McCarthy media claims the Senator wrongly implicated many. Despite their accusations, no critic has ever brought forth a single documented case of someone being wrongly accused by McCarthy.... McCarthy was the lone voice who stood against tyranny. He exposed hundreds of agents determined to destroy America.... [Source]
McCarthy was right. Just look around and you'll find thousands of professors in hundreds of colleges across the country who daily indoctrinate young minds into communist thinking. The U.S. Department of State is loaded with socialists and communists and has been for decades. This is not paranoia. It is not fantasy. It is simple, observable fact. Today, the Democratic Party has been co opted by socialists and communists, which explains in part why they are so eager for the U.S. to lose in Iraq. It also explains why Senator McCarthy has been so trashed by 99% of American historians. To speak the truth about him would be "politically incorrect." But now, in Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy, veteran journalist M. Stanton Evans shows not only that this portrayal of McCarthy and his cases is mistaken -- but that virtually everything else that we've been told about McCarthy and his "era" is false.
Barack Obama is a socialist and a communist. He was trained in politics by socialists and communists. His policies and many of his current allies are socialists. But don't take my word for it, take the word of the son of one of Obama's greatest mentors, socialist Saul Alinksy. His son David recently wrote a letter to The Boston Globe, praising Obama for effectively applying his father Saul's neo-Marxist methods:
"Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday." Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky
Obama has stated publicly more than once that Alinsky is one of the people that he most admires. Alinsky wrote, "... the community organizer ... must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression." (Source: Rules for Radicals)
Do you want a president who would "rub raw the resentments of the people?" A president willing to "fan the latent hostilities" of people to the "point of over expression?" That "overt expression" would be manifested in riots and violence like what was seen in the late 1960's. Is this what we want? Is it what we need? If you think so, comrade fellow traitor, vote for Barack Obama.
Alinsky's influence is still strong today, 36 years after his death. His theories, strategies and tactics, learned so well by the radical Leftists of the 1960's, are now applied by the post-hippy era grownups who run, among other things, the Democratic National Committee. Alinsky's methods "found a perfect vehicle for their destruction of the American system and more particularly for taking and maintaining power," wrote Diane Alden in 1993, and "That instrument was the Democratic Party."
The US has taken many baby steps, and a few jumps, toward socialism since WWII. Socialism is simply, as Marx himself stated, a stepping stone on the path to Communism. Obama will be one small step toward "change," but a giant leap toward a Marxist collectivist state in which individualism will be discouraged, perhaps even crushed.
The effort to bring such a collectivist state into being, a state in which Orwell's "1984" nightmare becomes the everyday reality, has been a long process by a large number of scholars, intellectuals, writers, and politicians. Even industrialists.
In 2006, Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D. wrote (with emphasis added):
H. G. Wells in 1928 wrote THE OPEN CONSPIRACY: BLUE PRINTS FOR A WORLD REVOLUTION. In Wells' EXPERIMENT IN AUTOBIOGRAPHY (1934), he described the goal of the "Open Conspiracy" as "an adequately implemented Liberal Socialism, which will ultimately supply teaching, coercive and directive public services to the whole world, is the immediate task before all rational people....Plans for political synthesis seem to grow bolder and more extensive....The New Plan in America to the New Plan in Russia and how are both related to the ultimate World-State? There must be a common faith and law for mankind....Only after a huge cultural struggle can we hope to see the world-state coming into being."
In 2008, Dr. Cuddy wrote this (emphasis added):
And if the American people choose the Power Elite candidate Obama over Power Elite candidate McCain, we will begin to see a “new feudal order” controlled by elitists as described in Arthur S. Miller’s DEMOCRATIC DICTATORSHIP: THE EMERGENT CONSTITUTION OF CONTROL (1981). In this book, Miller reveals: “Dictatorship will come – is coming – but with the acquiescence of the people, who subconsciously probably want it. The Grand Inquisitor likely was correct: people want material plenty and mysticism, not perfect freedom. Freedom is an intolerable burden…. The ideologist for this development is B.F. Skinner. The goal is ‘predictable’ man – a person who conceives of freedom in Hegelian terms. Americans are moving into a Skinnerian world, one in which they ‘will no longer know, or care, whether they are being served or controlled, treated or punished, or whether they are volunteers or conscripts. The distinctions will have vanished’ [Peter Schrag, MIND CONTROL (1978)].” (Also see http://www.bfskinner.org/)
Do the people subconsciously want a dictatorship? You tell me: In Chicago, a city long controlled by Democrats and socialists, our freedoms have been steadily eroded. So much so that recently Chicago was named the worst city in the US for exercising personal freedom.
The Windy City’s litany of meddlesome laws range from a tax on bottled water to a ban on serving alcohol at all-nude strip clubs. Local gun controls and a public smoking ban are among the most restrictive in the country. (That smoky Chicago blues joint of yore is now just a movie cliché.) There’s a primary seat belt law, meaning motorists can be pulled over for not buckling up, and a ban on using cell phones while driving. The city is second only to New York in the use of surveillance cameras in public spaces and has more red light cameras than any metropolis in the country. (See "What's the Matter With Chicago?)
The next time you hear somebody in Chicago complain about restrictive laws, ask them why they repeatedly vote for the politicians who make those laws. People like Alderman Joe Moore with his now-repealed anti-goose liver ordinance. People like Mayor Richard Daley and the entire city council, who jointly produce law after law after law designed solely to restrict your freedoms - and to control you.
The socialists, communists and Marxists among us often speak in code. A pedestrian example of this is much (although certainly not all) of what we refer to as "politically correct" speech. Phrases such as "economic justice," while they sound pretty, are actually code. Such phrases are not code in the sense that they are meant to be kept secret, exactly, but rather softened. Language is important, and as Obama himself is fond of saying, "words matter." Indeed, and so it is much more palatable to hear "economic justice," a vague, pretty sounding notion, rather than what the real meaning is: Wealth redistribution with the authority of the state. And the authority of the state is always backed up, ultimately, at the point of a gun.
"Economic justice," writes IBD, "simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat. It's a euphemism for socialism."
The IBD piece continues, noting Obama's use of the phrase "economic justice":
During his NAACP speech earlier this month, Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. "I've been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served," he said at the group's 99th annual convention in Cincinnati.
More (emphasis added):
And as president, "we'll ensure that economic justice is served," he asserted. "That's what this election is about." Obama never spelled out the meaning of the term, but he didn't have to. His audience knew what he meant, judging from its thumping approval.
IBD writes that the general public "remains in the dark" as to the real meaning behind the code phrase "economic justice." It's not that the general public is generally stupid; the general public has not been schooled in Marxist ideology or Hegelian dialectic. I've been studying it since the mid-1970's. The IBD has a group of experts who have launched a special series about this, called "The Audacity Of Socialism."
But what, you may ask, is Hegelian dialectic? It is important to know and understand it.
Niki Raapana and Nordica Friedrich noted in 2005:
Hegel's dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action.... The Marxist's global agenda is moving along at breakneck speed. The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic....
When we understand what motivated Hegel, we can see his influence on all of our destinies. ... Hegelian conflicts steer every political arena on the planet, from the United Nations to the major American political parties, all the way down to local school boards and community councils. Dialogues and consensus-building are primary tools of the dialectic, and terror and intimidation are also acceptable formats for obtaining the goal.... Once we get what's really going on, we can cut the strings and move our lives in original directions outside the confines of the dialectical madness. Focusing on Hegel's and Engel's ultimate agenda, and avoiding getting caught up in their impenetrable theories of social evolution, gives us the opportunity to think and act our way toward freedom, justice, and genuine liberty for all.
