College Students: The New “Useful Idiots”

Monday, 25. April 2011 8:16

If a child has been told since birth that the sky is green- not blue- they will grow up believing that the sky is, indeed, green.

If they’ve been taught that global warming is looming, Karl Marx had great ideas, Che Guevera was just a misunderstood dictator, the “f” word is just another “catchy” phrase, and drugs are the key to a happy, well-adjusted life, then they will grow up to mirror AND BELIEVE those ideas.

By the time our children get to college, they have been brainwashed, not just to believe that evil is good, but to balk at any authoritative figure, including their parents, who tell them otherwise. Young adults have been deceived into believing that their underdeveloped, undereducated, inexperienced brains know best.

How far we’ve come from the days when father knew best. How far we’ve come from the days where swearing in public was taboo, girls “saved themselves” for marriage, parents- not schools- were allowed to discipline their own children, families bonded around the dinner table, and kids were allowed to be “kids”.

Students of today have been kidnapped by our public institutions. Schools are gaining more and more authority over our children, no longer just educating them, but also being their primary source of food and discipline. The educational books have been “dumbed down” to a level where many college age kids have difficulty making change from a $5 bill. The good news is that although kids can no longer diagram a sentence, they CAN give you the top 30 reasons- in alphabetical order- that global warming must be stopped, and they ARE adept at interpreting a sentence like “im da friggin man ov my ^^^ block.”

Priorities, you know….

They are no longer individuals, they have now become a collective unit of useful idiots.

Useful idiots. These were Lenin’s people. These folks are the key to a successful communist regime. These are the citizens of a dictatorship who never think, they just act. Like good, little comrads, they believe what they’ve been told to be true, never questioning, never allowing themselves to draw rational conclusions. You see, if useful idiots were actually taught the power of reasoning, they would never vote themselves into slavery, never vote themselves into oppression.

They would understand the power in numbers.

There is only one reason that the college kids of today are supporters of guys like Barack Obama and his merry men: They have been taught from a young age to ignore individual reasoning and replace it with collective reasoning. They are taught that their own aspirations are not nearly as important as “saving the grass” or “serving” the government. They learn that guys like Marx and Che and Castro aren’t evil, they’re “cool”— if you denounce them, you will be scoffed at by your peers and your instructors, all of whom know better than you. It’s a form of peer pressure.

You, too, want to be associated with the “cool” group.

Here’s the irony: If any demographic has reason to protest our current administration, it is those young students in college. These future earners are the ones who are the most affected by the lack of jobs. They attend college for years, spending thousands of dollars educating themselves in an effort to eventually get out into the workplace and become successful, only to be told that the “good-paying” jobs that they covet are not available, especially to an inexperienced student.

Can they not see this?

They are the demographic who can least afford the high gas prices as they drive around in their old beaters. They are the group who will pay into social security for 30 years but never see a dime back. They are the group who will watch their taxes skyrocket, watch their paychecks dwindle, watch the demise of healthcare, and watch as potential job opportunities are moved overseas due to taxes and regulations.

They are the group who will pay for the sins of our previous and current political decisions. If we vote to raise the debt ceiling, to bail out the banks again, to bail out another corporation like GM, to allow the current level of spending, or to subsidize worthless forms of alternative energy, it is the youth of today who will eventually pay.

We’re all riding on their backs.

Liberal politicians are telling the college students that these unsustainable economic problems can be quickly solved if only the “rich” would redistribute more of their income. You see, excessive entitlement spending isn’t the problem, the “greedy rich” are the problem.

Believing the propaganda, the useful idiots- the students- then rise up and protest. Loudly. They join hands with the power-hungry union leaders and the socialists to collectively raise their fists in a show of solidarity. Hey, it’s fun, as a kid, to rally with a rebellious group. It’s fun to wave signs, run through the streets, and regurgitate professors’ words from a bullhorn.

It’s fun to be anti-establishment…

It won’t be nearly as much fun when the real world hits, the jobs are not available, the education they received doesn’t get them to the promised land, and whatever they earn goes back to the government in the form of high taxes.

The same taxes they marched to increase in college.

When it wasn’t their money.

If they are lucky, these kids will leave college and become successful-aka, “greedy rich”. Their wealth, no matter how it’s earned, will be redistributed to others who are needy, who choose not to work, and who didn’t want an education.

It is these young minds that the socialists need to further their cause….

Notice that when Barack Obama wants to get his message to the masses, he simply shows up on a college campus, a place where indoctrination has replaced critical thinking. He talks like the professor he was, imploring the youth to follow his lead. The students have heard this type of rhetoric for over 12 years and it plays like music to their ears.

All they’ve ever learned is that the sky is green. And so it is.

One day, when they look up and allow their eyes to focus on reality, they will see the blue skies. But by then it will be too late, by then they will have voted themselves into an economic mess, the likes of which this country has never seen before.

It is then they will realize that they were used, abused, and discarded by a government with an evil agenda.

These kids were never the “freedom-loving”, “tolerant” intellectuals who were protesting for a “cause” as they had been told.

They were merely a vote, a useful idiot.

Obama’s Past And Why No One Will Question It.

Friday, 8. April 2011 7:16

Intellectual Dishonesty: “When the truth is too unpleasant, a natural tendency is to refuse to believe it.”

No matter how clear the evidence is, people can always find an interpretation that will allow them to cling to what they want to believe.

Such is the case with our President. If a truly unbiased man were to stand back and take an objective look at Barack Obama- his past, his policies, his lies, his deceptions, and his agenda, he would simply declare that Obama was- and continues to be – a fraud and a socialist.

It’s perfectly clear.

The problem has never been that we can’t find evidence that Obama is living a big lie, it’s that people don’t want to believe it.

The are being intellectually dishonest.

How do we know? Because if George Bush or Sarah Palin had refused to give up all records of their past, including a simple birth certificate, these same folks would be screaming from the heavens. Imagine if Palin refused to show us her college records, her college thesis, her health records, or her passport. Imagine if she had used multiple social security numbers throughout her life and now used one that had been issued in the early 1980′s out of Connecticut- at a time when she had never even visited Connecticut.

Imagine if she had surrounded herself with radicals throughout her life, people who talked of revolution, people who hated this country and actually planted bombs at government buildings in Washington. Imagine if she had attended a church for 20 years where a reverend spewed hatred toward America and, more specifically, toward the Jews…..

Imagine the liberals ignoring these things if they pertained to Palin.

Yet when American citizens ask a few logical questions about Obama’s past and his qualifications for the highest office in our land, they are labeled “birthers” by both the political Left and Right. Somehow, just asking the question makes people squirm. Why?

Because we want to believe that he’s telling us the truth. If Obama is lying about the circumstances of his birth, then his entire house of cards begins to crumble. Suddenly, we will have to question the truth behind everything this man says and does.

We will have to admit that we elected a “fraud”, a “con-man” into the White House. We have to admit our own stupidity.

Journalists, especially, don’t like to be wrong. Notice how their stories make headlines, but their retractions are buried on the bottom of page 4A. These folks want to give us the impression that they’ve “done their homework”, probing for facts and researching into the wee hours of the night, when the exact opposite is usually true.

Most journalists take the easy way out when it comes to writing about people they like, they simply regurgitate what they’ve been told.

In the case of Obama, they’ve been told a lie.

So what IS the truth? Well, we don’t know for sure. We know that Obama claims he was born in Hawaii, that Barack Obama Sr. was his father, and that his father abandoned him when he was 2. All of these facts remain questionable. I’ll get into these theories at another time, but suffice it to say, there is new evidence that suggests Obama has manufactured much of this.

Obama claims he attended Columbia University from Sept. 1981 to May 1983, yet an investigation by Orly Taitz- the leading lawyer on the birth certificate controversy- has shown otherwise. When she accessed the Clearinghouse records on Obama’s attendance at Columbia, here’s what she found:

Look at the dates on the last line: “09/01/1982 to 05/31/1983.”

He told us he attended in 1981.

Why does this matter? Well, it was leaked by an FBI informant that Obama had spent time in Pakistan in 1981. Once this became news, Obama came clean, claiming that he made a stop in Pakistan to visit friends on his way back from Indonesia where he had visited his mother in the summer of 1981.

Here’s the problem. It was nearly impossible for an American to travel into Pakistan with an American passport at that time. Did Obama get special treatment? Also, there are no records showing that he ever went to Indonesia. There is even speculation that he spent an entire year in Pakistan, not the few weeks he has stated.

One more thing that you might need to know: Obama’s Pakistani friends have admitted to their Marxist/communist ideologies during the years they spent at Occidental College with Obama.

Barack’s passport has been off-limits to us.

The college dates- Sept. 1982 to May 1983- on the above document seem to coincide with the theory that he wasn’t at Columbia during 1981. Where was he? Who financed this trip?

Huh.

Lots of unanswered questions about this man we call “the leader of the free world.”

We also have the issue of Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number. This controversy has the ability to be bigger and more damaging to Obama than the birth certificate controversy. Attorney, Orly Taitz, has been investigating…. Here’s part of the scoop, according to WND:

Both Daniels and Sampson [investigators working with Taitz] state that in the 1980s, Obama assumed as his own a Social Security number that had been applied for in Connecticut and was issued by the Social Security Administration between the years 1976 and 1977.

Sampson, a retired senior investigator with the Department of Homeland Security, provided in his affidavit an expert opinion that there is no reasonable explanation for a person residing in Hawaii to get a Social Security number issued in Connecticut.

The affidavits of the private investigators indicates Obama is using a fraudulent Social Security number,” she [Taitz} said, “so I am requesting information from the Social Security Administration that would help us track down the Connecticut-issued number Obama is using as well as the multiple Social Security numbers that show up for Obama in the private investigator databases.

Daniels, in a previous interview with WND, said the Social Security Administration never re-issues Social Security numbers.

“A person who wants to hide their true identity often picks up the Social Security number of a deceased person, thinking that nobody would ever look into it,” Daniels said. “I think it was sometime in the 1980s that Obama decided to hide who he really is.”

And sure enough, Obama’s SS number HAD been held previously by someone, an elderly person born in 1890 who had lived in Connecticut.

So let’s see, Obama has used MULTIPLE Social Security numbers and is currently using a “recycled” number from a dead guy in Connecticut? This, if proven, is Social Security fraud.

Another tid-bit: We know that Barack worked at a Baskin Robbins in Hawaii in 1975- yet this SS number wasn’t issued until after that time. What SS number did he use during the time he scooped up ice cream?

No one knows.

Huh.

Here’s the truth. Even if the mainstream media had done more of their homework before the 2008 elections, most Americans were not ready to believe that Barack Obama was a con-man. He was “the Messiah”, a “Prophet”, and the “One we are waiting for”. He offered us “transparency”, “hope”, and “change.” He promised to eliminate racism, eliminate poverty, eliminate discrimination.

Like all good communists, he told us what we wanted to hear.

Some of us could see through it, simply because we actually DID our homework. The majority of people, even when presented with the facts, were – AND STILL ARE- in a state of intellectual dishonesty.

Some things are simply too hard to believe.

An enemy from within? Impossible.

Yet, sadly probable.

Obama And His Anti-Israeli Buddies

Saturday, 2. April 2011 10:36

New video has emerged showing President Obama’s friend, and former “Green Jobs Czar”, Van Jones, speaking at a rally on September 12, 2001.

The day after the day from Hell.

He wasn’t crying for those lives lost in the Twin Towers, on the planes, or in the Pentagon. He wasn’t waving an American flag, singing “Proud to be an American”, or lighting a candle for those who were still buried in the rubble. No, Van Jones was rallying the “people of color”, standing in solidarity for the Arab world, and addressing the crowd this way: “It’s the bombs that the government has been dropping around the world that are now blowing up inside the U.S. borders.”

This man worked inside of our White House at the request of our President.

Was Van Jones vetted properly?

Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s closest adviser and an old friend from Chicago, was the woman who hired Van Jones. When speaking about her recent hire, she beamed as she addressed a cheering, supportive crowd: “Van Jones– We were so delighted to be able to recruit him to the White House. We’ve been watching him for as long as he’s been active out of Oakland.”

They’d been “watching him.”

We now know that Van Jones is a self-avowed communist. He’s a “truther”, a guy who believes that George Bush toppled the World Trade Center. He believes in a one-world global government, is a PLO sympathizer, and and was the founder of “The Ella Baker Society” (an anti-police group)– named after a socialist woman who worked with communist groups and had associations with the Weatherman Underground, a revolutionary organization which included Bill Ayers.

We see a similar biography from Reverend Wright, Obama’s minister of 20 years. He’s another PLO sympathizer, a man who preaches hatred of the Jews and American imperialism from his pulpit at Trinity Church. Wright is the minister who stood before his congregation after Sept. 11, and delivered the now-famous line, “America’s chickens have come home to roost”, a strong way of saying that America got what was coming to them- we were responsible for the attacks.

Coincidence?

Rashid Khalidi, a professor at Columbia University is another good friend of Barack Obama’s. “Khalidi and his wife, Mona used to babysit for Barack and Michelle Obama. Khalidi was the spokesman for Yasser Arafat when he headed up the PLO and is virulently anti-Israel.

In 2003, the Obamas and William Ayers attended a party for Rashid Khalidi and heaped praise on him. From Campus Watch:

“A special tribute came from Khalidi’s friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi’s wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.”

There’s more….

Obama also has a strong connection to a man named Khalid al Mansour. Al Mansour (AKA Donald Warden) was a Saudi agent who, it has been reported, helped to finance Obama’s education at Harvard. He was well-known to the FBI, was affiliated with the Weather Underground, was hired by the Saudi King to represent OPEC in a lawsuit, and was a mentor for members of the Black Panther group during his years at Berkley. He is strongly pro-PLO.

From Newsmax: “Although many Americans have never heard of Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour (his full name), he is well known within the black community as a lawyer, an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an author, an international deal-maker, an educator, and an outspoken enemy of Israel.

Samantha Power is another good friend and colleague of our president. She worked as a close aid to Obama during his campaign and was forced to leave when she called Hillary Clinton, ” a monster.” Power then temporarily went to work for one of George Soros’ “think tanks”, but after the election, Barack brought her back on board as the senior adviser to his national security team. She is the woman who is most responsible for convincing Obama to take action in Libya- and to do so with the help of the U.N., not the U.S. Congress.

OK, but where does she stand on Israel?

When asked in a 2002 video how she would advise the president on Israel, Power responded this way:

-“Alienate” the American Jewish community, and indeed all Americans, such as evangelical Christians, who support the state of Israel, because Israeli leaders are “destroying the lives of their own people.”

-Pour billions of dollars of the taxpayers’ money into “the new state of Palestine”.

-Stage an American ground invasion of Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Wow.

During the campaign, Obama had two other interesting men on his “Hope and Change” team, Robert Malley and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Both are known to be strong supporters of the PLO. Malley was scrubbed from Obama’s campaign in May, 2008, when it was leaked that he was having regular contact with “Hamas ” Both of these men have strong ties to George Soros, a man who we’ve now learned wants nothing more than to see the demise of Israel.

How are they all tied together?

Ed Lasky at American Thinker has reported it this way: Soros is a man who has supported a wide variety of groups that have shown a propensity to criticize America and Israel; a man who has made clear his goal is to break the close bonds between America and Israel. He’s a man who has also been a key financial backer of Senator Obama’s, and a man who can activate a wide variety of 527 (c) and other activist groups for any politician he supports.

Soros is a funder of the ICG (International Crisis Group) through his Open Society Institute ; he serves on its Board and on its Executive Committee. Robert Malley is the Director of the Middle East/North Africa program at the ICG. Other members of the Board include Zbigniew Brzezinski (whose anti-Israel credentials are impeccable)…”

Then there are Obama’s questionable ties to Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Frank Marshall Davis, Louis Farrakhan, and others….all of whom are/were critical of Israel.

OK, so what does this all mean?

Well, it seems strange, doesn’t it, that our President, both during his campaign and in the White House, has surrounded himself with and has been financed by individuals who have strong anti-Israeli sentiments.

Since when did the party of the Democrats become the party that supported the PLO? I’ve been surrounded my whole life by people who support the DFL , people who are strong democrats, and I have yet to meet ONE who doesn’t support Israel….

Where did Obama find these anti-Semites and why is he still engaging with them?

And does this explain his actions in the Middle East? Does this explain why he turned his back on the revolution in Iran while he actively helped to topple the regime in Egypt (Mubarak was a “friend” to Israel)? It’s becoming clear that the Muslim Brotherhood will most likely take control of the Egyptian government now that Mubarak is gone.

The Muslim Brotherhood is not a friend of Israel.

And does this explain Libya? We know that Samantha Power is the woman who convinced Obama to get involved in this “humanitarian” mission, but is there an ulterior motive which involves the demise of Israel on “humanitarian grounds” (to protect the “oppressed” people of Palestine)- something she is on the record as supporting?

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

There’s a lot of smoke in this administration. Where is Congress? Where are the investigations into those who surround the president? Why isn’t the House challenging this “kinetic military action” on the grounds that they were never consulted nor did they appropriate money for it?

Through it all, the Jews in America hang onto hope that Obama is simply oblivious to those who surround him, that he will ultimately come to the aid of Israel when/if the time comes that they need our help.

They’ve underestimated this president of ours. He’s not a naive, uneducated school boy, in fact, he’s a very good student of the Left.

The socialist/communist Left. Democracy must be toppled in order for communism to thrive. Israel is first.

America will be next.

A Clear Distinction

Wednesday, 2. March 2011 10:54

As Wisconsin continues to battle, I’m beginning to see some hope.

A mere glimmer…

Sadly, this hope comes in the form of divisiveness. You see, as the political Left continues to show us their true colors, a clear distinction is being made between the 2 major political parties in this country. The party we call “Democrats” have headed further to the Left and have morphed into quasi-Marxists. The communists, socialists, imperialists, and union thugs have usurped the democrat party, making it perfectly clear that they stand for strong-arm tactics, worker “rights”, and revolution if necessary.

They want “workers of the world” to unite. They want a borderless, globalist society. They want to destroy capitalism, destroy the fabric of America, destroy the free market, destroy the family unit.

We have yet to see a democrat leader- including our President- stand up and denounce the AWOL Democrat Senators. We’ve yet to see a strong democrat leader or group, distance themselves from the communists and socialists who have set up shop at the Madison Capitol. Instead, they have embraced the thugs, embraced the Leftist ralliers, embraced the signs comparing Scott Walker to Hitler and the socialist signs showing a clenched fist of power.

My question to all of you moderate, ” JFK-loving” democrats is this: Does this party still represent you? Is this who you are? Are you a person who wants our elected officials to run from adversity? Are you a person who wants to give up your constitutional rights for the “rights” of the socialist worker? Are you ready to fight alongside these Marxists to attain a global society-and do you understand what that means?

Conversely, with pressure from the Tea Party movement, the Republican party is slowly- but surely- turning to the political Right. We see them quoting the Founders and the constitution. We see them fighting for our God-given rights, not our “workers’ rights”. We see more and more republicans articulating common-sense arguments, both fiscally and socially, arguments that include hard work, freedom, and opportunity rather than equality.

Which leaves people a clear choice, doesn’t it? Gone are the days when we can rightly exclaim that “all politicians are the same”, when the political waters were so muddied that it was difficult to discern the Right from the Left.

It’s as if someone has come in and parted the Political Red Sea, splayed it right open for all to view. The distinction is clear and “independents” and “moderates” now have a clear choice: A free America or a socialist entitlement state?

Which one?

Most Americans understand the differences between the Constitution and the Communist Manifesto. Most Americans remember Stalin’s Russia, remember the poverty, the mass government slaughter, the conditions in which the Russian people lived. Most assume, incorrectly, that horror of that kind could never happen again, especially in a capitalist society like the United States.

Even Ronald Reagan, the man who fought communism throughout his life, knew this to be a false premise: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

In the end, Americans will rise or fall as a group. We will either ALL have freedom or we will ALL live in oppression. If the new breed of democrats achieves its goal of toppling the rich, toppling capitalism, then we will ALL be equal…equally poor, equally controlled, equally miserable. When reality hits and the money, food, oil, and resources are dried up, we will ALL feel the pain.

Look to history. There is not one socialist country that has achieved the collective prosperity of capitalist America- not one.

Why? Because as Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

So, again, my question to independents and moderates is this: Which side do you choose?

Do you want your children to live under an American flag or a clenched fist?

The Liberal Elite’s War On Wealth

Monday, 20. December 2010 7:57

I was looking through an old box of my grandparents “stuff” when I came across a newspaper from 1933, one in which the headline celebrated the end of prohibition: “Beer is Flowing Again!!”

My grandfather, a great Italian, liked to make wine.

On the bottom half of the fold was another, more interesting article, one that took my breath away. It was titled: Idle Rich Class Taboo In Hitler’s Economic Plans.

It spoke about the new leader of Germany, a guy named Adolf Hitler, who had come into power and was going to create the “perfect” society with a new economic plan, one that he claimed would “change” Germany.

I wonder if his “change” also included “hope”?

The main principle behind Hitler’s “new Germany” was a classless society, one in which the rich would be taxed to the level of the poor so that both classes would work together side by side to better the state:

Castes and classes are to go. In their stead, a community spirit is to be inculcated in which rich and poor, exalted and lowly, shall work side by side for the fatherland.

The idea is that capitalism as such is not to be abolished, but its excesses prevented. The principle, “the public wealth is paramount to private gain” must be the guiding factor in determining the extent to which individual capital can expand. But private property must not be directed against the state.

For instance, a man of means will not be permitted to support a theater in which plays are given that belittle the government. His surplus must be contributed to useful, patriotic purposes.

Taxes will be graded so as to prevent the amassing of vast fortunes. If a man acquires so large an income that he can live from it without further effort, ways will be found to reduce him to the necessity of again performing socially useful service. This will not apply to old people, who are to be permitted to live off incomes earned by a life-time’s hard work.

The inheritance tax is to be high and everything that might enable the heirs to live a life of laziness. It is not to be high on things that promote socially useful lives. Thus, a factory or a homestead can be passed on to the direct descendants, but distant relatives will be practically taxed out of inheritance.”

Any of this sound familiar? Listen to Megyn Kelley’s interview with Representative Weiner and you will hear history repeat itself. Weiner tells us that taxing inheritance really isn’t taxing someone twice because, in his words, “You’re dead.” He says that those who benefit from an inheritance should be taxed because it is “unearned wealth.”

Really? Didn’t someone earn that wealth? The government certainly didn’t earn that wealth…..why should they feel free to dip into it again?

Listen to the rhetoric of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Michael Moore, Barack Obama, and the Hollywood crowd. All of them are wealthy elites who want to eliminate the extreme classes in society- they want to “spread the wealth around a little bit” – You know, take it from the guy who’s making $300,000 per year and give it to the guy who makes $30,000 so things are “fair.”

Interestingly enough, I would wager to bet that none of these individuals paid more than required to our government in taxes. I would bet that each of them took advantage of tax breaks wherever they could- even writing off their gifts of charity. I’m certain that none wrote an extra check to the government because they wanted to “have more in common with the little guy.”

Did Nancy Pelosi work without a paycheck last year, telling Congress that she didn’t need the extra cash since she and her husband are millionaires? Gosh, no. In fact, not only did Nancy happily collect her salary, she asked the rest of us to finance her private jet so she could fly home each weekend. She asked us to finance her food and drink on that jet to the tune of $101,000 per year (that’s just the food and drink, not the jet). She asked us to fly her friends to Italy so they could have a wonderful vacation together and she even hosted private parties at our expense.

Then Nancy turned around and passed legislation that specifically helped her husband make more money.

These people are hypocrites. They need to be called to the table and ratted out one by one. John Kerry parks his yacht in Rhode Island to protect himself from the high, Massachusetts taxes. Charlie Rangel, Tim Geithner, and Tom Daschle didn’t pay their taxes. Joe Biden gave a pittance to charity until he ran for Vice President and realized that he looked like a cheap-skate.

But they sit on their high horses and preach that the guy making $250,000 is “rich”. They call him names. They chastise his success, telling the world that he “has enough”, and ask that he “give more” to the government so they can spend it on themselves and their pet projects.

Oh, and on their reelections.

While liberals preach “diversity” and “tolerance” in our schools, they are actively preaching “hate” in the halls of Congress. Oh, it’s not “hate” toward blacks, latinos, or gays that they proliferate….it’s a different kind of hate, the kind that’s acceptable.

It’s a hatred of the “rich”, the “successful”, the “upper class”, the guy who has “too much”- the guy who probably gave you your job and is helping to feed your family. The guy who is taking care of the health of your kids because he busted his butt and became a doctor. The guy who mortgaged his family farm to pursue a dream, invent a product, or discover a cure for a horrible disease. The guy who took a risk and watched it pay off. The guy who opened up a little store or a restaurant and watched it thrive. The guy who has a unique God-given talent and decided to nurture it rather than ignore it.

Successful people get in the way of socialism, of government control. Why? Because they are smart, innovative, career-driven folks who are a thorn in the side of a big government mentality. Socialists need to dumb-down society, they need to create “useful idiots”, not entrepreneurs.

You see, in a socialist society like the one we saw in Hitler’s Germany, only the government officials are allowed to be rich. Only government employees are allowed to thrive. The “useful idiots” must rely on the government for everything, including their very lives.

When we read history, whether from an old newspaper or a book, we are holding everything we need to know in our hands. Why don’t we learn from it? Why are we teaching our kids to dismiss it? How can we read about the policies of Hitler or Stalin and not see a parallel to our current society?

What we’re seeing from this administration is pure “hate speech”- the hatred of the successful.

They’re making it acceptable for YOU to hate these folks, too. In fact, they’re encouraging you to be jealous, encouraging you to complain, demand, and organize against those who have wealth. They love the class warfare that they’ve created.

My grandfather, the one who loved to make his wine, came here from Italy at age 16 with a second grade education. He worked his tail off, delivering fruit and blocks of ice. He bought a small business and it became quite successful through his hard work. He died a “wealthy” man- a proud man, a man who proved that the American dream was real to those who found an opportunity and ran with it.

He went back and visited Italy often throughout his life, but each time he returned, he would look at us and say, “I love Italy, but thank God for America.”

Thank God for America.

If only our President would feel the same.

And the American Dream? Well, it’s slowly becoming a thing of the past as the useful idiots no longer strive for success.

They are brainwashed and entitled. And controlled.

Just where the wealthy socialist elites like them.

Muslims And Communists: A Double Threat

Monday, 6. December 2010 8:26

On the surface, Muslims and communists appear to have little in common. Yet, as we’ve come to discover, appearances are sometimes deceiving….

You see, both of these groups would like to infiltrate our country and radically transform it from within. And in an effort to gain total control, both use similar tactics as a means to their individual end-games.

Let me explain….

We all know that there are moderate Muslims, yet the moderate Muslims do not determine the agenda of the Islamic religion, they are mere pawns. If you speak with those who are familiar with the Koran, familiar with its teachings, you will see that the Islamic religion is not as “peaceful” as has been reported. The religion, itself, preaches “jihad”- in fact, every Friday, prayers can be heard from mosques in many Middle Eastern countries that call for the death and destruction of America and its people.

That’s us.

Brigitte Gabriel is a woman who lived in Lebanon as a child and watched as the Islamic extremists engulfed her once, Christian nation, forcing her and her parents to live in a hole in the ground for 7 years before she was able to escape to Israel. She now lives in the United States and speaks with great expertise about the Islamic religion. In her book, “Because They Hate”, she warns Americans that unless we wake up, it is only a matter of time before we, too, become willing victims of the Islamic regime: “Like the Christians in Lebanon, Americans are not realizing the power of the Islamic call to jihad. America cannot defend itself in this war unless and until the American people understand the nature of the enemy that it faces.”

The communists aren’t a “peaceful” bunch either.

The communist threat to America is growing by leaps and bounds. We have known-Marxists in the highest levels of our government, actively laying the groundwork for a massive government takeover. Most Americans scoff when they hear the word “communist”, wrongly assuming their members include only hippies of old, folks who are harmlessly living amongst us with radical, senseless dreams.

What these Americans don’t understand is that the communist movement is alive and well. They don’t need numbers, don’t need a majority in order to be successful. As a matter of fact, Lenin had a slogan, “Fewer but better”. He believed that the party grew stronger by purging itself of members who weren’t as organized or as dedicated. Those who remained were disciplined. He stated that “by these chosen few, the conquest of the world will be accomplished.”

So where is the common thread among the Muslims and the communists?Both are minorities and yet, both are growing forces in America. How?

The answer lies within the democratic party.

The communists knew that they needed to infiltrate one of the major political parties in order to appear mainstream. Because they called themselves, “The Vanguard of the Workers” , it was natural for them to get into the DFL- the farmer, labor party. In 1964, we were able to gain some insight to their world when the FBI conducted hearings in Minneapolis where communists and former communists were deposed.

It seems that communists in Minnesota were told to join the DFL without disclosing they were communists. They were then instructed to use their influence to promote the crucial issues and the policies that the Communist Party wanted enacted and in doing so, would have the backing of a credible organization.

Huh. So that’s why the DFL is so far Left……

The Muslims have done the same within the democratic party. Men like Keith Ellison, representative of Minneapolis, is a democrat. He has just been named the co-chair of the progressive caucus. He asked to take his oath of office on the Koran, rather than the Bible, and uses his influence to make organizations like CAIR (which is backed by Hamas) appear mainstream.

Muslims have used the Democratic Party’s influence with the unions to push their agenda into our schools. You’ll notice that Muslims- or democrats- are not pressing for all religions to pray in schools…

Communists have done the same. In 1964, we heard testimony that the comrades were instructed to infiltrate the school boards, finding candidates who could be easily influenced to comply with a Leftist agenda.

This explains why American history is now taught using the books written by a communist named Howard Zinn.

Both the communists and the Islamists use the “foot in the door” approach. They are tenacious. They are not afraid to sue or protest if they don’t get their way. They feign discrimination, claiming to be offended, which causes the average citizen, business owner, or city official to squirm and give in to their requests. The Muslims do this through religion, the communists do this through atheism. Both push to get Christian values removed from society.

In Philadelphia, a sign was taken down from a Christmas Village because someone was “offended.” The sign was replaced after a huge backlash ensued. This is becoming a common headline throughout America.

They continue to push, push, push. They view small steps as giant leaps, knowing that they must have patience and fortitude to reach their goals.

If anyone dares to question the intent of these groups, they are scoffed at, called names, threatened. A simple cartoon in a newspaper that put Allah in a bad light ended in murder. The intimidation felt by that one act has caused the rest of the world, including those in the U.S., to cower in fear. The government’s investigation of “Joe the Plumber” showed all of America what happens to someone who questions socialist thought.

All the while, democrats are helping the cause of communists and Muslims. There are now approximately 83 members of Congress who openly belong to the Progressive Caucus, a legislative group which espouses socialist values.

As I said, Keith Ellison is the co-chair.

Here’s what’s scary: As the democrat party, with the help of the communists and socialists, continues to move to the Left, the Muslims are taking full advantage. The far-Left judges who sit in our highest courts are extremely sympathetic to the Muslims because of their minority status. Through the use of our own court system, the Muslims are advancing their agenda at an alarming rate.

Oklahoma had a ballot initiative in November which allowed the citizens to vote to keep any form of Shariah out of their state. The vote was passed by an overwhelming majority, yet one, lone judge has temporarily cast aside the will of the people.

One, lone, far-Left judge can usurp an entire state.

In this way, the Muslims, communists, and democrats are working hand in hand to see our country move to the Left.

One other interesting thing of note: Communists and Muslims share another bit of history. Neither of these regimes has looked kindly upon the Jews- yet the Jews in America vote overwhelmingly for democrats.

Mind-boggling.

We are watching it happen with our very eyes. Can Republican politicians see it? Hard to tell. They are so afraid of being called “haters” that most refuse to address the threat of Islam. They are so afraid of being called “crazy” that they refuse to address the threat of communism. We are a country founded on limited government and Judeo Christian values, and we are allowing big-government communists and Islamists to take over.

All in the name of political correctness.

Time to nip it in the bud. Time to throw some salt on the slippery slope and slam the door on the foot.

Time to stand up for the principles this country was founded upon. You want communism? You want Shariah?

Go somewhere else.

Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out….

Mark Ritchie: What The Media Forgot To Tell You….

Wednesday, 10. November 2010 7:28

Well, well, well…it seems that our local media forgot to tell us a thing or two about our current, and newly elected Secretary of State.

I wonder if the entire entourage of reporters lost their ability to google?….

I found this little tidbit while surfing the net. It appears that Mark Ritchie is on the Steering Committee of the Apollo Alliance.

National Steering Committee

* Ruben Aronin, Global Green USA
* Andrew Beebe, Energy Innovations
* Robert L. Borosage, Institute for America’s Future
* Dan Carol, CTSG, Young Apollo
* Maggie Fox, Sierra Club
* Bracken Hendricks, Apollo Alliance
* Van Jones, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
* Mindy Lubber, Ceres
* Mark Ritchie, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
* Joel Rogers, Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS)
* Marco Trbovich, United Steelworkers of America (USWA)

Why is this newsworthy? Although the average voter has no idea what the Apollo Alliance is, any political reporter who receives a paycheck should instantly recognize this group as the “brains” behind the Stimulus Bill and also a hard-left environmental group which would like to see the “greening” of America. They should also be able to look at a list of the Board members and Steering committee members and identify a number of them who are extreme radicals.

Revolutionaries, actually.

My mother always told me that I’d be judged by the company I keep. I’ll bet Mark Ritchie- reigning from ‘down-home’ Iowa- got the same advice from his mom.

Let’s see who else is a member of the Apollo Alliance.

Well, as you can see, our good friend Van Jones is also a steering committee member. This is the guy who started a group called STORM which pushed for a violent revolution in the United States. He’s a self-avowed communist, a man who also formed another group called the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights- an organization formed from a prior group called “Cop Watch”- whose members supported cop killers.

Van Jones is a declared communist and supported cop killers?….Yup.

Huh.

Jones started another group, too – “The Color of Change”- described by NewsBusters as “an extremist racial grievance group that tries to stir up racial antagonism in order to promote a socialist agenda.” His like-minded, radical co-founder was a man by the name of James Rucker who coincidentally was also the co-founder of the Secretary of State project.

Hey, isn’t that the project funded by George Soros to get Secretaries of State elected in states with close elections so that democrats would be in charge of any contested elections? And isn’t that the project that got Mark Ritchie elected in 2006?

Yes, as a matter of fact, Mark Ritchie was selected, funded, and supported by these radicals.

So Soros, Jones, and Rucker are all linked together….and Mark Ritchie is associated with all of them….

Now, if I was Mark Ritchie and I was funded by a powerful, radical man like George Soros, one of the most wealthy men in the world and the guy who has collapsed the currency in a number of countries, I wouldn’t want to screw up any elections, would you? I’d want to do my best to deliver an acceptable outcome to my “promoter” and financier……

Wouldn’t you?

Which is what Ritchie did in 2008. Oh, I’m sure Mr. Soros gave Mark a big, old pat on the back for turning a blind eye to the felons who voted, for allowing state workers to vote for the disabled, for keeping Photo ID out of our elections, and for continuing this fraudulent-filled voucher system.

And Mr. Soros also helped to fund that recount, didn’t he? Yes, he actually held a celebrity fundraiser in his home to help the cause.

Another interesting man who sits on the steering committee of the Apollo Alliance with Mark Ritchie is a guy named Joel Rogers. Again, most folks have never heard of old Joel, but those in the world of radicals are VERY familiar with this Wisconsonite. Joel Rogers is a professor at Madison and a man who started the New Party, a now-defunct Socialist party which we saw gain prominence in Chicago during the 1990′s. The purpose of this party was to take the democratic party and move it as far Left as they could until it created a third, socialist party of its own.

So who do you think was one of the ‘builders’ of the New Party? Look closely in the 4th column and you’ll see the name: Mark Ritchie.

Mark Ritchie, along with self-avowed “progressive/socialist” Joel Rogers, helped to build a Socialist party in the 1990′s. The party dissolved when election rules changed, but the associations with guys like Rogers (remember, they sit on the steering committee together along with radical Van Jones) seem to have stayed intact.

Mark Ritchie does not appear to be much of a “moderate liberal” does he? It seems as though he’s been organizing with radicals, he’s been funded by radicals, and he still has strong ties to radicals…..

Isn’t this exactly what we’re seeing in the White House today?

And isn’t this radicalism of America exactly what Americans voted against in this past election?

Yet, Minnesotans voted for Ritchie…why? Because the media didn’t do their job. They didn’t let the folks know about the associations of this man.

They forgot how to google….

Now we have another recounted election in the hands of a man who has a history of radical associations, a man who’d better succeed or he’ll have some explaining to do to a Mr. George Soros.

It’s sad to think that our state could be bought and controlled by an 80 year old, Hungarian born, socialist billionaire.

Did I mention that Soros next project is to take the vote for judges away from the people and put it into the hands of a “panel of experts”?

You don’t suppose Mark Ritchie is going to help him with this latest project, do you?…..

Stay tuned.

Have We Become A Country Void Of Decency?

Monday, 13. September 2010 7:43

On January 10, 1963, a list of 45 communist goals was presented to Congress, a list detailing the steps that communists intended to use to destroy the American way of life and replace it with their own brand of governance- one that included atheism and control.

In 1963, this list was laughable. It talked of “gaining control of the schools, the school boards, the school newspapers.” It spoke of “infiltrating the press, getting control of TV stations, discrediting the Constitution and the Founding Fathers.” It talked about things like “controlling the unions” and “infiltrating the churches.”

It all seemed far-reaching in a time of baseball, apple pie, religious values, and family cohesiveness.

Rules #25- 26 were the most far-reaching of all: Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

During a time when “Father Knew Best” and the word “pregnant” couldn’t be heard on a TV screen, these communist goals must have seemed ridiculous. Who in their right mind would EVER allow pornography on TV? Who would ever consider promiscuity to be “normal”?

Well, 50 years later, we now see that these communists have accomplished their goals. It may have taken a couple of generations, but we now live in a country void of morality, void of modesty, void of decency. It has been replaced by a country where mothers buy thong underwear for their 10 year olds and where the government is pushing graphic, homosexual sex into our public school health classes.

Oh, and condoms replace lollipops as a reward for good behavior.

Lollipops have sugar, you know…..

On September 5th, Philadelphia held its 2nd Annual “Naked Bike Ride”, an event meant to bring awareness to issues such as the environment, body image, and peace. About 1000 of these “peace-loving” individuals participated- many were completely naked, some were partially clothed and others were so heavily body-painted that they appeared to have clothing.

It was a beautiful thing.

All were biking for a cause, a cause that represents the degradation of society. They want to be “free” of chains, “free” to express themselves, “free” to be individuals. Those who support this form of expression argue that these naked individuals “enhance” the diversity of the city; they add a cultural element which seems to be lacking from plain, ordinary, hard-working citizens.

You know, those fuddy-duddies, the ones who wear clothes and go to church on Sunday.

I’m perplexed. How does biking naked to honor peace and the environment help anyone? Wouldn’t joining the Peace Corp or picking up trash on the side of the street be a much more productive way to help the “cause”? How does exposing your naked body to the world scream, “I’m peaceful”?

Call me stupid.

And why doesn’t law enforcement haul these kids away on indecency charges? The police have no problem enforcing seat belt laws and fining drivers for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign because, as they explain, , “it’s the law.” Well, “indecent exposure” is a law, too. Why are these offenders not ticketed and fined like the rest of us?

When do we, as average Americans, have the right to be “offended” and treated equally?

It’s taken years, but the liberal system of education has finally caught up to us. Our kids don’t understand that modesty is a good thing, instead, they’re being taught to “celebrate” their bodies and “explore” their sexuality. Teachers encourage them to try homosexual sex, to explore the world of oral sex, to use the condom that they’ve just handed out….

It’s all been pushed through the schools under the guise of “anti-bullying”, “tolerance”, “health”, and “protection.” It’s sold to the parents along with increasing statistics of STD’s and teen pregnancy, frightening parents into believing that they need the government’s help to keep their child safe – when in fact, sex ed and STD’s increase in tandem.

Parents are not allowed to have standards or morals without being called “judgmental”. We’re told to sit down and shut up, the youth of today know best. Americans know deep down that this country cannot continue on its current path without serious repercussions, yet, we shake our heads and turn away from what’s happening because that’s the easy way out.

As Dennis Prager tells us , “The easy way out leads to a life of unhappiness.” Would you say that our country is “happy” right now? Are we happy with what our kids are learning in schools, the values society teaches them, the messages they see on TV?

Is our country better because we’ve allowed it to become sexually expressive?

Me thinks not.

Parents who lived through the 60′s became parents who wanted to retain their “live and let live” mentality, not realizing the repercussions it would have on their kids and society as a whole. The communist movement has capitalized on and enhanced this way of thinking, using it to their advantage at every turn.

Communists are looking at their 50 year old list of communist goals, smirking as they realize how close they are to achieving their “utopic”, socialist America.

They have our schools, our unions, our newspapers, our TV. They’ve made pornography, divorce, obscenity, and indecency the norm. They’ve infiltrated our religion, our history books, our art museums. They’ve changed our culture from one of wholesome family values to one void of morality.

And they’re not done. Now the “fun” starts….

Here’s the truth, folks: The day they win….we lose.

The “Educating” Of Our Children

Monday, 30. August 2010 6:31

After studying the ideals of the radical Left, I’m beginning to understand that there is an agenda unfolding inside of our public schools. Gone are the days when we taught our children Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. Along with other senseless drivel, we now teach our kids that global warming is threatening their very survival and that condoms come in many flavors and colors.

Here’s what I don’t understand: Where are we finding mindless teachers who willingly go along with this current program?

And how can these same mindless teachers give a portion of their salaries to a teachers’ union (NEA) which is actively working AGAINST our kids, AGAINST our country, AGAINST freedom for Americans, and FOR a radical, gay agenda?

Like giving candy to a baby, teachers and professors are selling a Leftist bill of goods to their students.

Our kids are buying it- hook, line, and sinker. Why wouldn’t they? “Mrs. X is a really nice lady with really pretty hair and she tells us that the world is getting warmer and the polar bears are dying- so it must be happening. Mrs. X wouldn’t lie, would she?”

“Mr. Y tells us that sex is OK with boys and girls- or both- as long as you like each other- and that oral sex is really safe because you can’t get pregnant. ”

In many schools, the days are filled with new, innovative ways to get the kids to learn, however, much of what they are learning is a waste of time. For example, the NEA website encourages teachers to create a Poetry Calendar with their students. This activity involves charting poets’ birthdays on a calendar, and then charting and discussing works from the various poets. There’s even a section about designing a Poet t-shirt and another about staging a “Poetry Slam” whereby kids will perform works of poetry in front of an audience.

This time-consuming adventure is now called “education.”

No wonder my child barely knows his multiplication tables; he’s been busy charting the birthdays of poets.

Few students are educated as well as they were 50 years ago. Why? With computers, technology, nicer schools, and all of these new, innovative learning techniques, why are the kids failing? The democrats claim that there isn’t enough money to go around. Throw a few more dollars at the problem and it will correct itself. Like all good-intentioned liberal ideas, this has shown itself to be a bust. The problem isn’t the money, it isn’t the schools.

The problem is much more complicated: It involves the systematic breakdown of our culture and our families. Because of the degradation of society, we no longer teach respect, we no longer hold kids accountable who don’t learn, we no longer teach the basics, we encourage indecency, we encourage kids to question authority, and we allow the “victim” mentality to permeate the schools.

No one can fail. Kids who have been handed $120,000+ of tax-payer money for 12 years of education are graduating without being able to read. Throw all the money you want at something dysfunctional and it will never change unless you get to the root of the problem.

For the past 50 years, communists have dedicated themselves to undermining the culture and the families in America- mainly through education- knowing that if successful, they could gain a stronghold in our country.

They seem to have done a very good job, indeed.

On this same note, the NEA website now promotes the reading of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” by all of its members. This book, as you might know, is dedicated to Lucifer, who Alinsky admired as the “original community organizer.” Alinsky was a known Marxist, a communist. Why would the NEA encourage all members to “become familiar with his theories & materials” ?

What are his theories? Alinsky taught that the “end justifies the means”. He pushed radical tactics of intimidation, confrontation, polarization, and rebellion.

Is this what we want our kids to learn from their teachers?

When our kids finally graduate and go to college, they can take classes that would make you shudder. Occidental College offers a course called, “The Phallus.” It’s cited as studies “between the phallus and the penis, the meaning of the phallus, the lesbian phallus, the Jewish phallus, the Latino phallus….” It’s offered by the department of critical theory and social justice.

Gosh, I hope my kids can get into that one.

Queer Musicology is offered at UCLA. It combines queer theory- “the study of gender, feminism and gayness – with the science of music, to produce a very open-minded course”. The LA Times reported that the course will introduce debates like: “the idea that if you’re gay, then music by gay composers such as Benjamin Britten will sound different to you than it would if you were straight.”

OK then.

There’s also a major called the “Science of Harry Potter” at Frostberg University and another at Indiana University that combines Star Trek with religion.

And we wonder why our kids can’t get a job.

Imagine the money we are spending on this nonsense….

We now know that most of their college history books were written by Howard Zinn, a known communist who skewed historical facts to enhance his view of the world. Theology is often taught by educators who twist biblical teachings to meet their needs. We cannot even count on Catholic colleges to stand up for what’s moral. Notre Dame, for example, brought President Obama in as their commencement speaker and gave him an honorary degree despite his support for infanticide- and despite the cries of millions of Catholics against it.

In a new book by Dr. Tim Elmore, “Generation iY: Our Last Chance to Save Their Future”, the author writes that “I have spoken to employers who told me they will never hire another new graduate. I have heard teachers say they can hardly wait for retirement since they can’t do a thing about kids today. I’ve had parents confide in me that they don’t know what to do with their kids except scream at them.”

The breakdown of the culture, the breakdown of the family…..

Government officials have officially taken over our children. Once they’ve been “educated”, kids no longer think like us, act like us, or want to be like us. They have been warped in a school system designed to warp them.

“Give me 4 years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” Lenin.

What happens in 12 years, Mr. Lenin? What happens to our kids in 12 years?

The Mosque: To Build Or Not To Build

Monday, 16. August 2010 7:41

While there are many things in life which we have a right to do; there are also many of those things which are not right.

We have a right to go to a ballgame and stand up the entire game, keeping those behind you from seeing the game.

In most communities, we have a right to paint our house neon yellow with purple trim or to let our lawn grow to an unsightly level.

But a little thing called “morality” keeps us from doing those things. We know that our actions affect others, and to live peacefully in this world, we must, at times, think outside of our “rights” and do what is “right.”

The same logic needs to be used when it comes to the building of the mosque, the controversial structure which may go up across the street from the World Trade Center bombing site. Do the Muslims have the constitutional right to build a mosque at this site? Yes, they do. Should they use this constitutional right, dismissing the cries from Americans all over the United States who feel that this is a disrespectful act and a slap across the face of those who lost loved ones on 9/11?

Of course not.

Why? Because it isn’t right. There is absolutely no reason that this mosque can not be built in another spot which is less controversial. “Keeping the peace” often means mediating, finding a solution which will benefit all. If the purpose of the mosque is simply to have a place for Muslims to worship, then they certainly can find another spot which will fulfill their purpose and won’t offend others.

If their purpose, however, is to spit in the face of America, then they will not mediate. They will claim their constitutional right to build this facility across from the bombing site and forge ahead. If past behavior is any indication, I will predict that the Islamic clerics who are pushing for the construction of this mosque will not concede.

Especially now that they have our mighty president on their side.

Obama stood before these Muslims at his Iftar Ramadan party and gave them the green light to build their mosque wherever they darn-well please. He never mentioned that it would be a gesture of goodwill if they would simply move the location of this project down the street a few blocks, nor did he mention that relocating would be a huge step toward convincing skeptics that Islam is truly a religion of peace. He didn’t talk of the harm this mosque could do to Islamic/American relations or the wedge it could put between New Yorkers- those who were the most affected by the destruction of the Twin Towers.

No, Obama stood with the Muslims, once again.

Shocking.

Barack Hussein Obama continues to baffle those who want to believe that he is pro-American. He makes it very difficult for moderate democrats to defend him because his actions continue to fly in the face of what we’ve seen from prior presidents. We have never seen a president who refused to defend our country or the American people from a dangerous, illegal population- or one who sued one of the 50 states for defending themselves. We’ve never seen a president go abroad and denounce our country or bow to foreign leaders. We’ve never seen a president defend the actions of Black Panthers and Gitmo terrorists, yet jump at an opportunity to say the police “acted stupidly.”

It’s unprecedented.

According to Politico, the democrats who are now running in tough congressional races are frustrated by Obama’s stance: “Democrats — at least some who were willing to comment — could barely contain their frustration over Obama’s remarks, saying he had potentially placed every one of their candidates into the middle of the debate by giving GOP candidates a chance to ask them point-blank: Do you agree with Obama on the mosque, or not?”

Few democrats are offering their opinion, yet every politician who is running for office should be asked this question.

Why? Because according to a CNN poll, 2/3 of the American people oppose the mosque- and Americans have a right to know where their elected officials stand.

After taking some heat, Obama is now backing away from his comments. He claims that he wasn’t giving the green light to the Muslims, simply stating that they had a constitutional right to build wherever they’d like. Some in the GOP, including Sarah Palin, aren’t buying this turnaround. In a recent Facebook posting, Sarah asked the President: “Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3,000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade.”

Interestingly enough, the controversial Imam who is pressing for the construction of the mosque is now touring the Middle East on the taxpayers’ dime. Yes, the State Department- aka, Hillary Clinton- has given this man an “all expense paid” trip as an “envoy” to the United States. He will also be given the opportunity to visit a few rich friends who might help him fund the mosque.

And these rich friends may also repay the favor to Clinton or Obama during the 2012 election cycle.

This controversy has done nothing but once again divide our nation. Just as Obama has pitted democrats against republicans, blacks against whites, illegals against legals, and rich against poor, he is now dividing us on a basis of religion. What’s sad is that it doesn’t have to be this way. If those of the Islamic faith will merely come into our country, assimilate into our culture, follow our rules, and use some common courtesy, they would go a long way toward healing the negative feelings of 9/11.

Divide and conquer- that’s the communist way. It’s difficult for communists to defeat a united nation, but relatively easy for them to exercise power over a divided mass. Obama has studied Marxism his whole life- he knows this to be true.

Our president is not a bumbling idiot who doesn’t understand the ramifications of his words. Quite the contrary.

He’s very intelligent.

And very intentional.
