Courtesy of some Facebook friends, a translation of an editorial from the Czech newspaper Prager Zeitungon: The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama,
Excellent evaluation coming from a rare overseas country with some common sense. Of course it´s Obama voters who pose the real problem.The culture of gimme has overwhelmed us and Obama is he best enabler they´ve ever had.
There was no welfare magnet back during the Ellis Island days except maybe relatives who took people in until they got their feet on the ground. They came here penniless in a lot of cases and worked on a dream.They made this country it is today or what´s left of it. They also came here to be Americans not a bunch of hyphenated Americans.You have 10´s of thousands of deserted manufacturing plants in the NE now and my opinion is the advent of organized labor was behind this.
The cost of hiring people today is so expensive,that employers have been corrupted into hiring under the table workers to avoid all these costs.Since they don´t pay taxes they get more bang for the buck even at a lower scale.
If you have to lay off an illegal worker,no big deal because it doesn´t raise your contribution to the unemployment fund.If they get injured,the employer self pays for their treatment,avoiding higher premiums on their workmans comp policies.
Drudge had a headline 2 weeks ago that 2 out of 3 people hired under Obeama were immigrants.The cost of hiring an American is just too steep.Only to get worse with Obamacare.Illegals are also carved out on paying for Obamacare.
Sadly, my brother, who used to live in the Czech Republic and loves its people, is one of the idiots who voted for Obama with great enthusiasm. The Czechs know what it is like to live under totalitarian rule. It´s a sin that so many Americans are willfully going down that road and dragging the rest of us along behind.
ROmney was right but the MSM allowed the Obama regime to use his words over and over again to trash him. I doubt if any one on the public dole voted against Obama. Not only does that segment of America scare me, but the MSM who also supports him no matter what he does. Four Americans were murdered in our name and it was not considered news by the MSM until after the election. That too is a danger to America.
Seems to me that a vast number of Obama devotees are unwilling to accept responsibility or recognize an authority figure. They have been coddled and pampered by their parents and easily brainwashed by the educational system. The concept of hard work is also beneath them. Our prosperity has created the climate wherein these types of individuals can flourish and they have. We are about to see just what the United States is made of when the economy collapses. We will see who fairs better. I am sure some in the world look at us and wonder what in the heck happened! Unfortunately, those who have lived under the yolk of tyranny recognize it all too easily and realize that we are headed to a very dark place.
ALL of the people I have talked to who supported obama had extremely small intellects, no historical knowledge and just about no financial knowledge. But ALL of them had college degrees. One of them, a cpa in her fifties, was unaware of anyone having cut taxes in this country and the consequences of such an action. All of them were for making drugs legal, suicide, abortion WHENEVER, even after live birth. Depraved is a mild word for this bunch of voters.
Obama need not worry about his voters seeing this article. So many of them just aren´t ´into reading.´ Reading would be such a waste of time, when they have Obama´s Marxists to tell them what they think.
I sure would like to know what was promised to the Zippy voters, not the long term stuff, the immediate payoff. We saw so many voters out that NEVER come to vote and certainly not at 9am. Just what was payoff that day?? There had to be something. These folks are so clueless they have a tattoo on their hand reading "Inhale,Exhale".
Regardless of the source or the timing of its origin, this is a stunningly accurate observation. We are living under an occupation of our country by a rogue regime put in place by a confederacy of fools.
Part of the write up states the Republic can survive Obama, I disagree, once he gets the guns, and I assure you he will either by backdoor deals with the UN or dissolving the second amendment with a stacked commie Supreme Court, it´s all over but the crying.
The sad thing is I know many of these "fools" and they are really deceived people more than foolish. They have been fed lie upon lie for a long time and it didn´t start in politics, but rather in the "Christian" churches who have been propagating a phony god for generations. Their god cares not a whit about sins like sexual immorality or lying or cheating or stealing or murder. Their god only cares about "helping" the poor and the proof you are worshiping their god is if you vote for the democrats.
In April 2011, an American Thinker writer cited it and said this:
There is a wonderful quote that has been making its way around the internet over the past year. It apparently was translated from an article published in the Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung last April and reads as follows:
Whoever wrote it, and when, is beside the point. The real point is that it is absolute TRUTH, and that is one of the two things that make me so pessimistic/doubtful about the future of this country. (The other is our refusal to stand behind Israel.) 11/6 wasn´t our Kristallnacht, but it surely helped pave the way for it. :sigh:

The country has morphed into one of willful dependency and corruption. Elections come and go. The current course of the US population will most likely last until it’s demise. Check out Two Wolves on Amazon.com.
I´ve been worried sick for the last four years because I DID live behind the Iron Curtain. Granted, I was there as an American diplomat, but I saw firsthand the horrors of Marxism. It was like being in a shark cage - I was insulated from the damage but I could see it clearly. It is beyond hideous and worse than anything most Americans have ever heard about it.
I grieve for my country and for my daughter´s future.
As others have said this was true 4 years ago and more true today. The decadent population is the problem. A free country cannot survive a decadent immoral population. I compare it to a parasite that kills it´s host and thus itself by never knowing when to stop sucking the life from it´s host. The parasites believe Obama saying that nothing needs to change if only the rich pay a little more. The GOP would have done well to feature the ad of Thomas Peterffy during the election and hammer it home. The rich will be poorer but the poor will be much poorer.
I just got back from a couple of weeks in Prague, where my daughter is studying for semester.
Sad thing is, in their most recent elections they voted in a bunch of Communists. No limit to what people will do for the promise of free stuff.
Even sadder, I felt so much freer there. Nobody asked me for an ID of any kind other than the hotel when I registered. Only place I had to submit to search and give up my electronics was the American Embassy. People eat and drink wherever they want, nobody worries about lawsuits, and even the dogs go everywhere without leashes. Wonder how long that will all last.
I still doubt the voting in last Tuesday´s election was proper. 0bama certainly got the lion´s share of votes cast by illegal aliens, felons legally disenfranchised, and the falsely registered deceased -- to say nothing of the machines rigged to count votes for Romney as votes for 0bama. (Touch screens in Colorado were programmed that way. Some voters caught the error, but many certainly didn´t.)
Sadly, the words in this article (if it really is one) only shows what America has become during the past several decades. But, it´s really no wonder. It seems that the vast number of immigrants, both legal and illegal, have come here from countries that were socialist, communist, or outright corrupt. As such, it´s the type of government they are used to and don´t any other. They have no background of freedom and self reward. So, they just vote for the person that will give them the most freebies.
Although this has been around for four years, it is still timely and best re-read from time to time. We are headed down a black hole of communism. But,remember the words of Winston Churchill, "Never give up, never give up, never give up!"
Not even an article, but an alleged comment on a German-language website ("Prager Zeitung" simply means "Prague Newspaper" in German -- there is no "Prager Zeitungon"), first posted on Freep more than two years ago. Why is it a Must Read?
In re #20, the confederacy of fools includes inner city blacks and hispanics, single mothers of all races, the young and dumb (university campuses stocked full of impressionable young people), young urban professionals who want everything now, yes, the msm, and the anti-Romney-ites who wanted to make their statement by not voting. Regardless of the source of the information, the message hold much merit and hits home on who is changing the face of America.
Do I care if 50% of the country are fools who want to live in socialism? Not really as long as they confine it to states like Mass and CA and all the other deep blue states. What I object to is the nationalization of these practices so that we ALL must suffer as one, when we´re not one.
This is why I want to divvy up the country so that the libs can have their socialism and the rest of us can have what America was intended to be. Shouldn´t that be agreeable to everyone? Sure seems like an amicable situation to me.
I have a thought, was talking about it for years. The conservatives for many reasons don´t believe in the power of propaganda. How do you think the morons/drones/jerks/leeches will react to the promises of commies to get everything with no efforts? Of course they love it! On top of that the feelings of greed, jealousy, and inadequacy help. We, on the other hand didn´t even try to organize mainstream media to explain to the above mentioned idiots what will happen later if we continue along this path. And mind you, we have history of fascism and communism to prove it! But no, every theoretician blabbers about wider tent! Morons and drones don´t care about tent - they already have the leaders - commies, who fulfill the promise. They don´t need repibics to repeat the promises made by dems! But when the dust settles things will be different from the promised fascist/commie paradise. And this is what conservative mainstream media HAS to explain!

... And then there is that nasty situation of widespread voter fraud in swing states, with larger percentages of people turning out to vote in swing state precincts than there were registered voters.
Stop this travesty at the Electoral College or in the Congress, or with secession. The red states and any who want to join them can form one country and the blue states can wallow in socialism, at their own expense.
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
You know a president is in deep trouble when even an improving economy can’t boost his popularity. That’s the situation facing Barack Obama, as optimism about a less anemic recovery in the coming year has done nothing to halt the slide in his approval numbers. With every poll showing him in deep trouble, it’s time for the White House to call in reinforcements and that’s what they’ve done by getting former Bill Clinton chief of staff John Podesta to return to the West Wing as a counselor. Podesta, a veteran liberal ideologue as well as a friend of current White
Apparently having decided to embark upon a course of self-parody, the National Reconnaissance Office — the other NRO — sent out a press release sharing the logo for its new spy-satellite program, NROL-39. The image is that of an evil-looking giant octopus with its tentacles encircling the entire planet over the motto: Nothing Is beyond Our Reach.(Snip)Our relationship with the national-security and public-safety bureaucracies has changed. It used to be that you called the fireman to get your cat out of a tree; now the policeman shoots your dog. We have police rolling through the streets of such combat zones
Soweto, the Johannesburg suburb where popular resistance to apartheid set off the revolution that changed South Africa and established Nelson Mandela as the father of a new country, is the most dangerous place on the continent this week. Anyone who ventures into the street risks being crushed by the hordes of official visitors trying to get in front of a camera. It’s difficult for a hardworking president, prime minister, movie star, rap artist or mere dictator to set himself apart from the crowd of mourners, grievers and lamenters in town to exploit the ultimate photo-op. President Obama did it, however, with
It’s almost time for the first anniversary of the massacre in Sandy Hook. Naturally the Obama-run state media will be giving it round-the-clock coverage. Barack’s servile sycophants in the mainstream media will do anything to keep the low-information voters’ attention diverted from how they’re getting blued and tattooed by Dear Leader. As the common nightwalkers of the press get ready for their latest anti-gun crusade, let’s not forget who’s co-sponsoring the TV spots — Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG). This organization was founded by two mayors who are now lame ducks, one of whom is Mumbles Menino. The money guy behind MAIG is
On the five-year anniversary of Bernie Madoff outing himself as the world’s most notorious white-collar criminal, the financial world still hasn’t learned some simple lessons. First, business journalists should stop listening to the fraudster himself. His multibillion-dollar scam caused at least three people to take their own lives, including his son Mark — yet Madoff remains mostly unrepentant and uncooperative. He continues to blame “the greed of others” and loves to offer his opinions on how Wall Street really works. That wouldn’t be so bad if Madoff pulled a Sammy “the Bull” Gravano and came clean about his misdeeds by giving the
The budget deal announced today is a good deal for conservatives and Republicans. From the point of view of policy, the deal is a modest achievement—which is all that can be expected, given the unfortunate fact that Barack Obama is president and Democrats control the Senate. The trade-off in the deal of minor mandatory cuts for relatively small domestic discretionary increases is basically a wash. That leaves the defense increase, which, while insufficient, is an important step in the right direction. That alone would make the deal worthwhile. But the restoration of the normal appropriations process will also have a
OK, not really praise; Roberts’s failure to strangle the Obamacare baby in its crib when he had the chance will go down alongside the Dred Scott decision as one of the greatest moral disasters in the history of the republic. The man in charge of enforcing the Constitution blinked when confronted with a triumphalist party and a then-popular president, forgetting that he, Roberts, would likely be in Washington long after Obama was gone. In an attempt to save the Supreme Court’s reputation and standing, he destroyed it. Still, even if inadvertently, Roberts got one thing right: the Patient Deflection and Unaffordable
This lefty trope has been bugging me for some time now, particularly because O’s cheerleaders use it as a crutch to explain away Obama’s litany of failures. Yeah, well maybe if he weren’t facing such relentless, unprecedented opposition and obstruction, he’d have been able to fix [insert issue] by now. Their argument is a bucket of hogwash and it’s promulgated via a rash of acute selective memory syndrome. It must have been Chris Matthews’ recent blatherings that finally pushed me over the edge, prodding me to write a fairly lengthy piece debunking Obama sycophants’ most calcified and self-serving myth: The way
American presidents should avoid shaking the hand of dictators, especially those that have American blood on theirs. One example of many: Raul Castro was Minister of Defense in 1996 when Cuban Air Force MiGs, cold-bloodedly and over international airspace, destroyed two civilian U.S. airplanes with four American rescue workers on board. President Clinton rightly condemned the attack as cowardly, while Raul Castro decorated his pilots for bravery. That incident alone illustrates the difference between the two systems that are embodied in the two leaders. President Obama seems unaware of the importance of his office or of the mantle of honor
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell believes the United States should have a socialized, single-payer healthcare system similar to those in Canada and Europe. “I think universal health care is one of the things we should really be focused on, and I hope that will happen,” Powell reportedly said last week. “Whether it’s Obamacare, or son of Obamacare, I don’t care. As long as we get it done.” The Puget Sound Business Journal reported Powell´s remarks at the Prostate Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast at the University of Washington´s Cancer Research Center. Powell, the Republican who supported Barack Obama during the last two presidential
President Barack Obama is bringing his family of aides and advisors down to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s mass-media send-off. “For us it’s the President and the First Lady, the Attorney General [Eric Holder], Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett,” Ben Rhodes, the White House’ deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, told reporters during an impromptu press conference on Air Force One. Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry are staying behind, but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was on board Air Force One as well. The memorial is expected to be attended by hundreds of world
