America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution

By Angelo M. Codevilla from the July 2010-August 2010 issue <http://spectator. org/issues/ july-2010- august-2010>

As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the
leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations and
opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall
Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that
spending some $700 billion to buy the investors’ “toxic assets” was the only
alternative to the U.S. economy’s “systemic collapse.”

In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama. Many, if not most, people around them also agreed upon the eventual commitment of some 10 trillion nonexistent dollars in ways unprecedented in America. They explained neither the difference between the assets’ nominal and real values, nor precisely why letting the market find the latter would collapse America. The public objected immediately, by margins of three or four to one.

Do Fear the Reaper

by Miri

It occurred to me, while watching Glenn Beck’s expose on Marxism and the Nazis, that at least Hitler didn’t make those he murdered pay for the gas and the gas chambers. Think about it:  They’ll force us all to pay for long-term care “insurance”, but who will own and control the facilities where we will be cared for? (But not long term. Insurance, it’s not, unless that means that you will assuredly die there, in “long term care.” They must lie awake at night thinking up this Orwellian language and then laughing at us when they use it to hide what they’re really up to.)

Obama, the Marxist

by Miri

We the People of the United States of America have ALL got to stop calling the POTUS a socialist, ASAP.  There’s no doubt about it–as the Krewe here at  WTPOTUS have proclaimed for a long, long time:  he’s actually a MARXIST.

All quotes in italics come from the writings of Marx or from works written about Marx, via Wikipedia:

The theory of Communism may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.”

Seize our 401k’s, IRA’s, and all public lands.  Tie up all natural resources, under the guise of environmentalism.  Nationalize auto companies; hamstring banks; “help” homeowners facing foreclosure (in effect, government owns the real estate); take over student loans; nationalize health care.  Redistribute wealth, by any means necessary.  Even redistribute teachers, in order to equalize “access” to good teachers and, therefore, to opportunity.  (How that would work,  only Obama knows.  FORCE them to relocate?)  All this:  To what end?

Why President Obama and His Marxist Allies are Pushing Socialized Healthcare

By Trevor Loudon,  Posted By Newssleuth

I have written this post to explain why President Obama is so desperate to pass health care legislation, seemingly regardless of the cost to the Democratic Party.

The reality is that President Obama owes his success and his hold on power more to three Marxist groups than he does to the Democrats.

The three organizations, Communist Party USA, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism and Democratic Socialists of America, all worked with Barack Obama for years and helped get him elected.

Now they want payback.

The Show-Me State Shows Obama

The St. Louis Arch

Some snippets from yesterday’s appearance in MO, as heard on radio and gleaned from newspapers and TV reports:

About 400 invited guests attended O’Bobblehead’s event; over 5 times as many citizens turned out for the Republican townhall the same day.

Four hundred astroturfed minions versus over 2225 concerned American citizens who came out on their own, in grassroots fashion, to oppose O’Bobble’s socialist schemes.

Then you have the fundraiser last night:  A [generously counted] 200 paid 0bot/HCAN reform advocates were there to picket, versus 2500 O’Bobblecare Opponents/Tea Partiers who filled the streets of St. Louis.

Way to go, St. Louis! People came from all over the bi-state area (IL and MO).

Of course, the lamestream media made it sound as if the groups were equal in number. They had a very tight shot of the Tea Party protesters on one corner (but they stretched way down the street) and then they panned over to the tiny pro-O’Bobble contingent of paid minions on the opposite corner. They reported “hundreds” for each side, when in actuality, it looked like no more than 40 Obot minions versus over two THOUSAND O’Bobble opponents (aka patriots).

There was one photo of the protest in the St. Louis Post-Disgrace: A cropped photo of ONE Tea Party protester carrying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. They made it a point to say that he declined to be identified. See more at: http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2010/03/2300-turn-out-to-protest-obama-in-st-louis/

It will warm the cockles of your heart.

Eric Massa Will Not Go Quietly !

By: Renee

Rep. Eric Massa, Dem. N.Y.  may reverse his resignation by 5 PM today. He claims he is being set up in a recent scandal due to the fact that he was to vote “no” on healthcare. He says if this is allowed to happen, there will be no one brave enough to vote “no” on the healthcare bill. He has commented that the only way to stop this corruption is to go national with his story. This is all over the web. It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds, as everyone is paying attention to it.
