That is a big topic on which much can be said. The U.S. has dabbled in National Socialism before; elements of Roosevelt’s New Deal emulated Mussolini’s policies, and were implemented by men who made no secret of their admiration for Il Duce. But it has been a long time since anyone has seriously tried to turn the United States in a National Socialist direction. Which is what Barack Obama seems to be doing. Consider his 983 executive orders, compared with George W. Bush’s 63. Or his extra-constitutional czars; or his illegal cramdown of bondholders in auto
Anyone with the slightest inkling of world history and particularly of the history of the Marxist socialist movement from Chicago in this nation can't deny it. That some in the Democrat Party weren't completely freaked out by 0bama, Hillary, Rahm Emanuel, Axelrod and the others shows that their party IS the Democrat Socialist Party. ''Introducing?'' It's been the plan for decades and 0bama is the front man they have been working to create.
The various national socialists differ from Lord Zero in that the former put the interests of their respective nations first while the latter seeks only to dismantle what once was ours.
Also, has any Republican ever been as effective in moving us to the right as Zero has been in moving us far leftward, at that in under 4 years? His progress and the lack of traction shown by his would-be resistance are both remarkable.
Where's congress? Ask Reid. Every bill the house sends to the senate, Reid refuses to bring it to the floor. It's called obstructionism. Look at the list of demonrats owning up to being socialists or communists.
The Senate is the problem but the Republicans are without excuse for their silence. It will not be enough to simply oust them. Whether the new administration wants to or not, lawbreakers must not be allowed to get away scot free.
We're really not allowed to criticize anything Obama does because of the racism firewall around him.If you oppose his unconstitutional power grabs,it's because you're a racist,not small government type.If you cling to the Constitution,you're a neanderthal and imperialist.
The left thinks he's doing a spectacular job,that's why they don't feel any election threat.The left is very overconfident that Obama will win.
All I keep hearing,even from our side that Romney had a couple bad weeks which is absurd because he doesn't have the power to do anything destructive. In the same time period,you've had the Libyan debacle where Obama sent his tool chest of fools out to spin with one lie after another.
Gee, according to BOR the jackbootlicker, we must adopt the Clington criminal law approach: the citizenry must prove socialism ''beyond a reasonable doubt'', or remain silent and docile--so that BOR may keep his job, and his Gucci loafers.
And golly, don't ask BOR or the MFM to 'investigate' all these outlandish policies as alien to a Constitutional Republic and repugnant to a Capitalistic eco system.
Nooo, we must passively accept the torrents of propaganda, until we get an admission of guilt in court of law, on the record, witnessed by 6 imams and a busload of MBros.
Ignore the fact that BurquaBari nicked his '08 slogan came from the Int'l Comm party ['Oh yes, he did'] and his current bit of stupidity comes from the eurosocialists [the English translation of ''!Adelante!'' etc]
BORbot is still flogging the Admin's canard that *the ''movie'' made them do it*. For this alone he should be fired.
"983 executive orders" !!! Good lord! Obama decided what the law was 983 times!?!?!?
Congress? What can congress do? So long as the dems can prevent an impeachment conviction, Congress can do NOTHING. And frankly....the VAST majority of democrats believe that Obama is doing the right thing.
#1 Hey, as long as people like that miserable soul in Cleveland get their Obama phone, why wake up? What we have to deal with now is that a majority of citizens are fine with creeping National Socialism. That is what is really scary.
Reagan was right, we only two generations away from losing it all. One more to go.

Agree with other posters, where in the heck is Congress? Republicans in the House and Senate are more afraid of the press, than they love America. The Republicans in Congress should be ashamed of themselves. Look at how they let Michelle Bachmann twist in the wind over the Huma Abedin letter she sent.
Thanks 29! Apparently from some spurious email that went viral, with very few bothering to consult the National Archives for the truth. Surprised to see a good columnist get tripped up by this. Any interested to verify here's the url: http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/executive-orders BTW, Neither Mussolini nor Hitler needed hundreds, nor even dozens of edicts to consolidate absolute power. Louis the XIV said simply "L'Etat, c'est moi!" I am the state. I expect that out of King Barky the Bumbler and his Hussein Clown Posse any day now.
#13 You are so right to point out that every bill the Republicans get passed in the House is killed by Reid in the Senate--no vote even allowed. BUT all you hear on the news is that those wiley Republicans are obstructionists. The public hears it over and over. I do groups with low to low middle income individuals and they are always saying that Republicans block everything! I guess it is hard to get the truth out there when all the media-INCLUDING FOX are so against us! How else to you get out the word? Do Americans really want socialism? Probably not if they understood what is entails, but no one is making clear what is at stake here. I don't altogether blame Republicans--it is hard to get the message out when there is no media support! Pat Cadell is right!
I have said this many times before, but it still needs repeating many times. If this country continues on it's current path, the only way to correct it is just what Thomas Jefferson wrote. And that is whenever a tyrannical government comes to power over the citizenry, it is the DUTY of the citizens to rise up and revolt against the government and install a new government. And right now, I don't really see another way. There are some parts of our Constitution that need to be changed(think term limits) and some that need to be repealed(the 17th amendment). There are more, but an intelligent panel of men and women could work that out. After, we now have 236 years of experience to draw upon. And if a revolution isn't possible, there is always the clause that allows a new Constitutional Convention that can be called for by enough of the states.
But, the most overriding act that needs to be accomplished NOW is to get rid of Obozo and his entire bunch of clowns.
Agree with #5. Can we stop it? I don't know. We all have to vote like dems in Nov....vote early, vote often and get all your dead relatives out to vote. Fight fire with fire. We have to save our country!
The laundry list of impeachable offenses grows daily. Where is John Boehner? Sucking his thumb most likely.
Boehner`s speakership must be challenged by the House members in January 2013. If Obama wins reelection he must not be allowed to continue. We the People an our freedoms are more important than Obama!!
What gave you the first clue Sir? woodrow wilson, rosseyvelt, lbj, karter or das current resident queen rat 0bower? Sponsored by the Environmentally Friendly Guillotine Ole’factory We offer fun, , timely, and permanent solutions.
No he didn't introduced FDR and other democrat president but the republicans didn't stop it or atleast try to reverse it. With Obama and the unions ,the media and the democrats it will become a complete take over of gov. as socialism ans sugar coat as "Progerssive" gov.
# 13 & 37 are so very on target,VERY. It IS the Dem Senate Leader who controls the agenda and I have watched Sens. Sessions,IsKacson,DeMint,mccain,Thune stand in the well and in "Senate speak" point out what Reid is doing, but the rules of the Senate are what they are and Reid wins.
Perhaps those Rs whom so many here castigate choose to shun the "headlines" that would destroy them,because they are so totally aware of the incipient socialistic leaning of so many there, is because they ARE fighting against the shift and mean to hang on just a bit more to continue the fight. IMHO, there are 46 Rs in the Senate who will retake their oaths along with 4-5 newly electeds and will save our Republic.
If Dems remain in control,then we will be a Socialist Nation.
No. 2 I can sum it up in two words, "Exective Order" and No. 21 I disagree, if you vote Obama there will be no more free elections. America if you have never prayed start, if you do pray you had better pray like you have never prayed before. America needs God's mercy and grace restored to her.
Apply Occam's Razor here. One need not go beyond the facts that Obama hates the U.S. and hates white people.
The U.S. must be punished for its Imperialism. Third world underdevelopment is not created by the lack of social, intellectual, economic and other failings of these countries, but by rapacious imperialism. Dreams From My Father: “A luxury cruise liner throws away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital see in a year.”
Hatred of white people. Twenty years in the pews of a Black Liberation Theology 'church' ingesting the spews of that racist, Jeremiah Wright, will do that. Here's some of their 'theology:'
"Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the Black Value System written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee chaired by Vallmer Jordan in 1981. We believe in the following 12 precepts and covenantal statements. These Black Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They must reflect on the following concepts: 1. Commitment to God 2. Commitment to the Black Community 3. Commitment to the Black Family 4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education 5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence 6. Adherence to the Black Work Ethic 7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect 8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness" 9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community 10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions 11. Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System 12. Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System.
On a historical note, it's important to distinguish between National Socialism (the Nazis) and Italian Fascism (Benito and friends). The author seems to conflate the two, but they are conflicting forms of fascism with different emphases. The author designs his argument around Mussolini, but then concludes that this makes him a National Socialist, rather than a Fascist (or, a Hitler rather than a Mussolini).
Additionally, the executive order number has been completely discredited. The president is on pace to sign about as many as Bush did in his eight years (if he's re-elected, of course) and less orders than Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Nixon, Johnson, Eisenhower, Truman, and both Roosevelts. Basing arguments on statistics like that one only hurts the discussion.
#2, I agree that Congress should be putting up barriers to what he is trying to do, but where is the Judicial Branch? So much that Obama has done is beyond the scope of the Executive Branch; yet, there is not a peep from the Supreme Court. Just a few of the lower courts have gotten involved in ruling against the administration. When a lower court does make a ruling, Obama ignores it, as in the BP drilling case.
Obama doesn't fear the Supreme Court, because he has a corrupt Attorney General who isn't about to bring anything before the Supreme Court that BHO doesn't want them involved in.
This is the kind of information that needs to get out and really fast. If it wasn't for Rush, Sean, Mark Levin and several others, and websites such as Lucianne, Breitbart, and Drudge plus the newer blogs, I would say we don't have a prayer.
I think we can overcome all of this, but we have to realize we are all soldiers now - kind of like the Colonial Patriots. We're going to have to engage in a kind of gorilla warfare with the news.
agree completely. the only faint silver lining is that if Zippy fails this idea is over for a while. and i like the thought that Zippy is a weak candidate relatively unlikely to succeed, who got it because of the kind heart of Americans who picked him out of sympathy over racial issues. So if he fails, we can warmly thank those people, e.g. Chris Matthews, because it's thanks to them this effort was not made by a substantially better candidate - a charismatic war hero who worked hard, understood the economy, liked some people....
oops, which is not to say we won't one day have a great African-American president, soon I hope; it is only to say that the Ayerses and so on took a short cut via the race issue, and thank God for that.
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
Entering his sophomore year at Occidental College, Barack Obama sought a political movement to match his personal awakening, which he signaled to friends and family at the time by reclaiming his African first name. Barry became Barack that year. He had read Du Bois, Fanon, Malcolm X — an array of authors writing about the black struggle for liberation in his country and in others shaking off the legacy of colonial rule around the world. That is where he looked for — and found — a figure and a cause to channel his rising political enthusiasm: Nelson Mandela, then imprisoned
I´m generally for more disclosure in campaign finance, but the best argument against requiring full disclosure by groups engaged in political speech is that politicians sometimes retaliate against their critics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren inadvertently made that very argument this week. As told by Ben White at Politico, a group called "Third Way" criticized Warren. Warren apparently suspected that Third Way´s criticism of her was funded by banks. So she wrote a letter to bank CEOs demanding they disclose which political groups they´re funding. Warren sits on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She´s basically telling the entities
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
