Every age seeks visionaries to leave, in the wake of their genius, a changed world – but rarely are they found without a few strikeout also-rans getting a crack first. In 2008, millions of Americans thought they had found the real thing. Over the subsequent two years the nation moved inexorably – though rarely without battle – toward European-style socialism.

Muslim? Not Muslim? A Strange Case of Perception
Quite frankly, I’m neither here nor there on the whole Obama/Muslim thing. However, I am very interested in how so many people either changed their minds about his religious affiliation and even more don’t know his belief system after two and a half years of getting to know him. It is a complete mystery how the public’s perception of a person’s religious belief system could change so much, | Read More »

What Happens When We Forget…
We have a whole generation of voters who did not learn about the Cold War let alone the horrifically violent WWII and it shows. We have a generation of voters who will never meet a Holocaust survivor, think Hitler, Stalin, Lenin and Mao were just trying to help their people, and that us over 35 are telling fairy tales when we speak of it. We have an | Read More »
Holder’s Admission A Revelation Into Obama Governing
Eric Holder’s admission last week when asked whether he had read the Arizona immigration law which was signed by Governor Jan Brewer allowing state enforcement of already existing federal laws, revealed the fundamental trouble of Obama’s administration and of Obama himself. In case you missed this revealing moment, Holder was asked during a Senate hearing on several subjects whether he had read the Arizona bill | Read More »
You Have A Choice Do Not Choose Socialism
I’ve seen this little story all over the place and although it’s fairly clever, it also is trying to depict Conservatives as being hypocritical because of using Socialist programs and then arguing against Socialism. This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in | Read More »
OK Pres. Obama, I Will Take Your Challenge, Here’s What Those Claims You’re a Socialist Are Based On
I do think that everybody has a responsibility, Democrats or Republicans, to tone down some of this rhetoric. And the truth is some of these comments when you actually ask, well, this is based on what? This notion that ‘Obama’s a Socialist,’ for example. Nobody can really (he chuckled) give you a good answer — much less when they, you know, make… President Barack Obama to Harry Smith April 2, 2010
Last week the President Issued a challenge, tell me what the charges that I am a socialist are based on? That has been answered in many ways, taking a look at his policies such as his takeover of the domestic auto business, Obamacare, “redistribution of income” etc. Another way it has been answered is taking a look at his associations, from Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers to people he hired such as Van Jones and Rev. Jim Wallis. While valid, the examples above are purely circumstantial.
I will answer the President’s challenge in a different way, going to the primary sources. When the President was running for the Illinois State Senate, not only did he run with the endorsement of a local socialist organizations, but he signed a contract with one of them, The New Party. he party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not a guilt by association thing. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement which required that he sign a contract with the group.

Mr. Ed! Socialist. Rush Is Saying What?
“Ownership has its privileges” “congress needs to equal out the audience” “there aren’t any poor people with microphones” “hell if we’re gonna be socialists, let’s be socialists all across the board” “[rush] is now opening admitting that he going to work against, and campaign against the democratic party and compaign against Obama” Mr. Red: You sir, are a useful idiot.
Total War means TOTAL WAR.
“with a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor” There were some poor, many “middle” class and a few that were filthy rich. John Hancock was likely the richest man in America at the start of the revolution. Samuel Adams was generally broke. Everyone risked all. Total War is not | Read More »
The Hilarity of Firedoglake
Today, they complain that Senate Health Bill Uses Federal Enforcement Against Individuals, but Not Private Insurers arguing that there is no penalty, enforcement against insurance companies, but they have no problem whatsoever being told and forced by Big Brother to pay for something they may otherwise not want to have, let alone pay for. Stupid people give up logic when they ignore it to spin | Read More »
The Unenviable Catholic Conservative
“Redistributive justice” has a clear ally in the Catholic Church. Those of us who oppose socialism are therefore placed in the unenviable position of contenting with Catholic doctrine. Pope Benedict attempted yesterday to convict “rich” industrialized nations to assume responsibility for the environmental affects of their citizen’s lifestyles. Summarizing the pope’s address, Reuters writes: “… technologically advanced societies must be prepared to encourage more sober | Read More »

Socialisms Scary Face
Here is an interesting cartoon from 1948. http://nationaljuggernaut.blogspot.com/2009/09/this-cartoon-seemed-far-fetched-in-1948.html
Was Jesus A Socialist?
There is a charge among some left-leaning professed Christians that conservative social policies neglect Christ’s commission to minister to the poor. Does the parable of the sheep and the goats in Matthew 25 imply Christians should petition their government to enforce “redistributive justice?” Jack Clark thinks so. We excerpt Clark’s podcast, Blast the Right, and consider his “equivalent alternative solutions challenge;” it is fine to | Read More »

Charisma is Content for Socialists
I could not help but note the below picture in today’s Drudge Report. As I looked at our President’s image, it reminded me of something that I could not quite put my finger on. Then it hit me. Being somewhat of a history buff, I realized that this very same photo had been taken many times throughout the decades. Oddly enough however, the only images | Read More »
