One overlooked influence on Barack Obama's political philosophy and governing style (if those are the terms I'm groping for) involves the Islamosocialist dictator typical of Islamic states during the mid-20th century. This class of ruler was washed up in the wake of the colonial period, as the Western imperial states retreated with no serious efforts to assure stable governments left behind them. Strongmen then stepped into the vacuum.
The left can't figure out why people would oppose government enforced equality. Well for one thing it isn't fair to the person who's earned what they have.People shouldn't get the amenities of a working person simply by pumping out a fatherless brat. People who live in poverty in this country would be considered middle or upper class in a lot of other countries,especially with living space.
It's really not a money thing but a get even thing for the left. Money is just a measuring stick of how far you can "punish the enemies".
Government liberals think they're entitled to their spoils because they're the arbiters of fairness.They want diverse neighborhoods for everyone but themselves.Even in the liberal bastion of Martha's Vineyard,blacks are roped off in their own hoods.I always laugh when I see the term "the black upper crust". They still haven't buried George Jefferson.
What the brotherhood doesn't understand is that Obama's goal is not to LIFT them out of poverty ... but to give them lots of company by enslaving many more Americans, including the employers who would have paid their salaries.
Gonna be dis-information (that's 'lies' for those of you in Rio Linda) all day. Especially be certain to tell everyone you know not to fall for the early declaration of victory the lefties are planning.
FTA: ''This is the real danger of electing someone who does not have an actual American background, whose character and ideas were formed in utterly different social and political milieus.''
This is the simplest & most concise argument ''why'' 0bama should never have been elected, let alone reelected. An example would be that 0bama was schooled for the twenty years in his pastor's [Jeremiah Wright] ideology of hate and racism, and damning America and repeating that sermon to the survivors of Hurricane Sandy as pResident.
"We have never settled solely political disputes with roaring machine guns or blazing pistols. The fact that this country has been run for four years by a man whose thoughts and ideas were formed in such conditions is, over and above anything else, an absurdity to the highest degree. It is a historical mistake that demands correction."
J R Dunn writes an absolutely brilliant look back into Obama's sick influences not yet examined. Dunn has genius. Must read! This article clarifies the depth of Obama'a cultural sickness. Imagine Nasser and Sukarno as his hereos - not Jefferson and Lincoln. If he wins we are really in for trouble unlike any second termer ever. He will have to be impeached for Benghazi and about ten other crimes.
The Senate will be 0's impeachment insurance if he somehow survives tonight, unless it all goes R. Hard to believe the current R leadership in the House would even attempt impeachment if there was no chance of conviction and removal.
There is one thing that upsets me when I read about how the fascists/commies do quid pro quo - give money to leftist political campaigns! Don't be idiots: they give money to leftist politicians! Why do you think in all dictatorial countries the bureaucrats have gazzilions in offshore accounts? Look at russian, ukrainian, chinese, mexican, etc billionaires. Where did they get their money from? Hard work? (Although it was hard to eliminate the competitors!)
Glad to see this MUST READ, because it certainly is! Explains so very much which we need to be aware of. We MUST look back and learn the historical lessons from the last century in order to not repeat the very same mistakes! Thank to, J.R. Dunn, for this timely, insightful & important analysis!
...From the long lines of determined voters we we saw when we voted this morning, we were reassured that we will soon see America the Beautiful's ship of state back on its Constitutional, 'compass,' course of Liberty with new leadership faithful to EACH ONE'S oath of office! Everyone was smiling as we thankfully and happily cast our ballots. What a joy it was to VOTE!!! God bless the USA.
I love the occasional experiment when Americans are presented with leftist ideas. Where cookies cost Asians more than Caucasian who pay more than Hispanics or Blacks. Or when someone proposes distribution of wealth by distributing Halloween candy or grade point average. Despite all the coaching from leftists in school, the American reaction is: that is not right, I worked for that! That is not Obama's reaction.
This article lays to rest many impressions I had of The Won. I found it simply fascinating that he would allow the adoption of the Che persona in marketing his image during the first campaign. If found it rather pompous and irritating that he would use grandiose faux backdrops in his political speeches. I found it absolutely insulting that his manner of communicating with the masses seemed like a know-it-all who condescends to communicate with the unworthy.
He is and does behave as a Third World demigod. I pray that after tonight we can bid him good riddance, and hold out hope that the likes of him may never darken the door of leadership again.
Spectacular article. I’ve been thinking this for about a year, and wish I could put it in words as he did. There’s no question that the communist countries of the 20th century will be considered passé in history, but meanwhile, look at the damage they’ve done. And most of the tyrants got there, like Fidel, because they stepped in with grandiose but nonsensical ideas because there was a vacuum. Imagine a 33-year-old jerk living in the mountains taking over a wonderful country for nearly 60 years, and only 90 miles away!! This Cult of Personality mentality is truly dangerous, especially since we know that even the “intelligentsia” and teachers are idiots!! Thank the lord for 8 year term limits. BTW, all the dems in politics know this guy is a fraud, but they stick to him because he has the power at the moment, which they are drawn to like moths to a flame…..
Individuals who have even visited Israel, or who observe Judaism, or who carry a Bible are banned from Saudi Arabia. Yet Saudi Arabia´s Israel-hating King Abdullah just flew in an Israeli scientist to have dinner with him, to enjoy some royal hospitality, accept a medal and the $200,000 "Arab Nobel Prize." It´s a not-so-subtle message to President Obama: the unthinkable can happen, so don´t assume the Saudis won´t join with Israel to bomb Iran. Obama´s new Iran policy moves the Mid-East closer to war over oil and religion -- Sunni Saudis versus Shia Iranians. There is no more strategic commodity than
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it
