Obama’s Declaration of Collectivism
National Review Online, by Larry Kudlow

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 1/26/2013 2:59:28 AM

One of the least remarked upon aspects of President Obama’s inaugural speech was his attempt to co-opt the Founding Fathers’ Declaration of Independence to bolster his liberal-left agenda. Sure, the president quoted one of the most important sentences in world history: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” So far, so good.

Comments:
With all due respect to Mr. Kudlow, Obama surely does not "misunderstand" the intent of the Founders. He understands all too well that limited government as enshrined in the Constitution is exactly what is preventing Himself and his fellow Leftist travelers from imposing socialism ("fundamental transformation"). Refusing to face and admit the Left´s malevolent intentions by demoting them to a merely excusable "misunderstanding", is 100% of the GOP´s problem right now.

Think about how crazy it is for this fool to have just e re-sworn in as president but the country´s optimism ratigs are as low as when Carter was president.

4 years wasn´t long enough for morons in swing states to figure Obama out,now all of a sudden,they been enlightened in the past 3 months.I wonder what Obama supporters that smoke will think when their insurance premium will be 50% higher than non smokers?
Why isn´t there a surtax on obese people,and others with addictions that will cost the healthcare system more?

Why are we just now finding out about the 50% surcharge on smokers.Of course if you smoke Newports you´ll get healthcare for free anyway,regardless.

There should never be a law passed without a clear definition of every contingency. Leaving tons of issues to the HHS Sec.discretion is completely insane.When a law isn´t clearly defined,no person or business can plan around it.

Collectivism? As in the Soviet Union´s collectivism? We all saw how that worked out.

Kudlow´s conclusion is worth keeping in mind:

Equality of opportunity is the American ideal. Equality of results and income-leveling are foreign to the American ideal. As conservatives and Republicans regroup, and as they seek to achieve a better America, I hope they keep the opportunity principle uppermost in their minds.

Obama´s only ideal is Marxist/Socialist collectivism. You can forget the "opportunity" part. His goal is to destroy and spread the misery.

To show how far the incidious collectivist jaugernaut has come, it´s even reached Project Runway, a TV show about picking the best new fashion designer. The absudity hasn´t seemed to have occurred to those who set it up. The collective is judged first, then the individual who can´t win if his/her arbitrarily chosen teammates didn´t win collectively.

It would just be another silly reality show if the same politically correct criteria wan´t being used in science ...

Obama Channeling Pope Francis
To Sell Wealth Redistribution
Big Government, by Robert Wilde    Original Article
Posted By: steveW- 12/27/2013 1:54:30 AM     Post Reply
President Obama is using Pope Francis to foster wealth redistribution ideas in his speeches on the importance of reducing the gap between rich and poor. Now that the President’s message of “Hope and Change” has drastically soured over his last few years in office, Obama is hoping the popular pontiff’s vitality will rub off on him. Michael Peppard, a professor of politics and the papacy at Fordham University, posits, "I think Obama probably wants to tap into some of the energy, and tap into some of it for his own message." Obama quoted Francis in a recent speech on fiscal

How Republicans Can Lose on

It is a tactic as old as argument itself. The person seeking to accomplish something he knows to be dishonest and unjust sets the parameters of the argument, and invites his opponent to debate the predetermined memes. If the debater does not first disown the false premise, and reset the terms, he has effectively lost from the outset. In the case of ObamaCare, the premise is that our healthcare system was irretrievably "broken." Congress had to step in and "fix" healthcare. Of course, this was a ruse for the easy marks. No one but the utter simpletons among us believes

Charles Krauthammer has come to my rescue. You see, I’ve been on the receiving end of some spirited reaction since asserting in last weekend’s column that what we commonly call the Republican establishment — i.e., not all individual Republicans but GOP leadership — “is more sympathetic to Obama’s case for the welfare state than to the Tea Party’s case for limited government and individual liberty.” The statement may have been provocative in the sense of expressing a truth that people on the political Right prefer not to talk about. But it was not controversial because it is indisputably true.

Why the Republican Party?

After the latest dismal performance by congressional Republicans in their battle (a generous description) with the president and his minions over the budget and ObamaCare, it´s time to ask, "Why the Republican Party?" From Jed Babbin, writing for American Spectator: Staggering, without direction, not quite dead and in search of brains, the Republican Party is giving a really good performance as the Zombie Party. According to the media´s current narrative, it has to rid itself of the Tea Party´s influence or die. The saddest of facts is that the media narrative is shared by many establishment Republicans.

President Barack Obama toasted the founding dictator of post-colonial Tanzania on Monday, who collectivized the nation’s low-tech agricultural sector, established a one-party state and left that African nation’s economy in ruins. “[Y]ou might say an American child is my child. We might say a Tanzanian child is my child,” Obama said after quoting the Tanzanian saying “my neighbor’s child is my child.” “In this way, both of our nations will be looking after all of our children and we’ll be living out the vision of President [Julius] Nyerere,” Obama continued.

But today’s news about the pageant focused less on Miss Brady than on Marissa Powell, Miss Utah.

This is the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of How Democracies Perish, an analysis of the spread of world communism by Jean-François Revel, one of freedom´s most serious French defenders since Tocqueville. At the heart of this work, Revel details "The Tools of Communist Expansion," among which the most relevant for understanding our current situation comes in Chapter 16, "Ideological Warfare and Disinformation." The profound simplicity of Revel´s nuts and bolts account of totalitarianism´s Cold War advance, far from being obsolete

It´s a perennial favorite of scammers to claim we face pending doom that can be averted only if we quickly send them more money or do what they want us to. From The Music Man´s "Ya Got Trouble" to the emails purporting to be from family members who´ve been robbed or imprisoned overseas, the game is a constant money maker for the con men who employ it. Count President Obama as one of the masters of the art of diverting attention from facts, crying doom and grabbing yet more money from our pockets to enrich his buddies

Obama’s Anaconda Plan Squeezes
the Entire Economy

Let’s take a step back and recognize the breadth and width of the Obama administration’s assault on the US economy. We tend to divide ourselves along economic lines, upper, middle and lower or working class. It’s clear that Barack Obama has a plan for all three levels. If you’re a top earner, in his mind you’ve “made enough money” and should pay more in taxes. That’s his plan for the wealthy: Pay more taxes. This will take some money out of investments and companies and send it to the government. Some jobs will be either lost or aborted.

In college I read a novel called The Last of the Just by André Schwarz-Bart inspired by a legend/theory from the Talmud — that there are thirty-six righteous souls (the Lamed Vav) in every generation whose existence justifies “the purpose of mankind” to God. From Wikipedia: As a mystical concept, the number 36 is even more intriguing. It is said that at all times there are 36 special people in the world, and that were it not for them, all of them, if even one of them was missing, the world would come to an end.

The 2008 and 2012 elections have revealed that an escalating number, perhaps a majority, of Americans are comfortable with the concept of transforming the United States into a Euro-Socialist democracy. While this may be easily sold to an increasingly ill-educated populace by those desirous of capturing political power, the reality is far different when it comes to the price to be paid. A price that is not only monetary but societal as well. Yet there is no party in this nation willing, regardless of the political cost

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated.By the end of an extraordinary and exhaustive 107-minute news conference, Chris Christie had transformed himself from a belligerent chief executive, famed for ridiculing his detractors, into a deeply wronged father figure, shaking his head, whispering his words and verging on tears. The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

Every night’s going to be Halloween night for Hillary. The skeletons in her closet are signing up now for the conga line. They’re impatient to put on their dancing shoes for the 2016 presidential campaign. Like it or not, it’s just around the corner.

The attempted whitewash by The New York Times of the hash she made of Benghazi only reminds everyone that she was asleep when the telephone rang at 3 o’clock in the morning. Robert M.

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s traffic headache dubbed “Bridgegate,” have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours. By comparison, that´s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama´s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. “While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,” said the conservative media watchdog.

Hi, everybody. Yesterday, we learned that in 2013, our businesses created 2.2 million new jobs — including 87,000 last month. Our unemployment rate is the lowest it has been since October 2008. And across our broader economy, there are signs of progress. [Snip] We’ve cut our deficits by more than half. Thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of the American people, our economy is growing stronger. But we know we’ve got more work to do together. It depends on the success of the American people.

Europe is set to suffer more severe droughts due to climate change and increased water use, scientists have warned. By the end of the century, southern Europe in particular will have 80 per cent more droughts than at present. New research by the European Commission predicts that water shortages will be made worse by population growth and increased demand. Drought can have a serious economic and social impact and is thought to have cost Europe over €100billion (or £83billion) in the past three decades alone. Researchers used computer models to predict which parts of Europe could be worst hit by increasing temperatures and intensive
