Is Obama Introducing National
Socialism to the United States?

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/1/2012 11:01:49 PM

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

This is a neo-Stalinist putsch, and it is a fait accompli.

Wake the hell up.

Judging from the silence, seems like at least half of the politicians are at least sympathetic to the communist party….More than a few actually are communists.

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.

That's been the plan all along and the stupid voters went along with it. They wanted all the freebies without having to pay for them.

It's now probably too late to turn things around, particularly if the Mulatto Kid is re-elected.

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.

I believe Mussolini and his Fascists provide the best comparison. At least for Obama's first term. O will be much more authoritarian and uncontrolled in a second.

If you bother, look at Mussolini's first decade. Later he seems to have been literally mad - perhaps syphilis - and started building his new Roman Empire. From then on nothing was coherent.

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.

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.

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.

Regarding the 983 Exec orders: I've received chain mail citing this number but I could only find 135 or so.
While I agree with the column, if this number is wrong it weakens Hinderaker's case.

Okay. I'm praying Ldotters and other Conservatives quit telling me to "wake up"

I'm awake. Been awake. Haven't been sleeping on the job. Quit telling the rest of us to "wake up"

I'm no genius, n=but even I know what we're doing politically is not working. Hasn't been working, apparently is never going to work in getting America back to a Constitutional basis.

Instead of telling me to "wake up" to wake up, tell me what you're going to do that turns this ship away from Socialism.

If say Vote! then you've already lost.

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.

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!!

Hoover primed the pump for FDR in the same manner Bush prepared the ground for Obama.

Regardless of who wins the election, the Tea Party must hold both parties accountable by warming up Allen West in the bullpen.

If (please, please) Romney were to win and the spending doesn't cease patriots such as ourselves will be marginilized for not holding Romney and Ryans feet to the fire.

A warning to all politicians, we know what the problem is.

It's the spending stupid!TEA!

# 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.

Mussolini-style Fascism:

State control (not ownership) of business.

State power concentrated in the Executive (i.e. The Leader).

Cultivation of a personality cult of The Leader.

Suppression of opposition to The State (i.e. The Leader)

Elevation of the State's interests over individual liberties.

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.

Any questions?

I don't really see much of an argument here.

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.

Exactly right. With the media under his thumb, he will probably succeed...and then America won't be the Land-of-the-Free anymore.

#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....

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to
U.N., setting up new confrontation

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking
mortgage relief could get

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
