Bail-Out/Stimulus Bull: Part I

Please read a discussion of the economic history of failure of the current methods being used to end the economic problems that threaten our Democratic Republic. Click on the URL below.

This is the first of three short articles written by a highly respected economist named Thomas Sowell.  Stay tuned,  two other  Dr. Sowell articles on this same topic will follow—one on Saturday and another on Sunday.

With the elections coming on next Tuesday (perhaps the most important in modern history), we all need to understand these basic economic facts.

Obama: A Student, Teacher, Practitioner of the Alinsky School of Revolution

October 28, 2010

Obama: A Student, Teacher, Practitioner of the Alinsky School of Revolution

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary.

On page 13:

“Three of Obama’s mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky Industrial Areas Foundation, and for several years Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method”.

Page 14:

“‘On Barack Obama’s presidential campaign website, one could see a photo of Obama in a classroom “teaching students Alinskyan methods. He stood in front of a blackboard on which he has written, “Power Analysis’ and ‘ Relationships Built on Self Interest…”‘

On pages 14 and 15:

A summary of Obama’s Acorn involvement was described by the Wall Street Journal.

In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella. The drive registered 135,00 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senate primary. Mr. Obama’s success made him a hot commodity on the community organizing circuit. He became a top trainer at Acorn’s Chicago conferences. In 1995, he became Acorn’s attorney, participating in a landmark case to force the state of Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law. The law’s loose voter registration requirements would later be exploited by Acorn employees in an effort to flood voter rolls with fake names. In (1996), Mr. Obama filled out a questionnaire listing key supporters for his campaign for the Illinois Senate. He put Acorn first (it was not an alphabetical list).

End of all Quotes.

In the final analysis, though Alinsky was dead by the time Obama came on the scene, Obama was trained by Alinsky’s students and became a teacher of his socialist revolutionary strategies which were based upon deception, deceit and opportunism.

With Alinsky, “The issue is never the issue. The Issue is the revolution” (p. 10). The ends always justified the means.

With President Obama the issue is not health care, global warming, cap and trade, or stimulating the economy, etc., it is a revolutionary progressive transformation of a capitalistic society to a socialistic one.

Alinsky: Dress Up As Members of The Ku Klux Klan

October 26, 2010

 Alinsky: Dress Up As Members Of The Ku Klux Klan

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary.

On pages 42 and 43, he quotes and interprets Alinsky:

Sanford Horwitt prefaces his biography of Alinski, Let Them Call Me Rebel, with an anecdote he felt illuminated Alinsky’s method. In this anecdote, Alinsky shares his wisdom with students wishing to protest the appearance on their campus of the first George Bush, then America’s representative to the UN during the  Vietnam War:

College student activists in the 1960s and 1970s sought out Alinsky for advice about tactics and strategy. On one such occasion in the spring of 1972 at Tulane University’s annual week-long series of events featuring leading public figures, students asked Alinsky to help plan a protest for a scheduled speech by George Bush, then U. S. representative to the United Nations, a speech likely to be a defense of the Nixon Administrations’s Vietnam War policies [Note: the Nixon Administration was then negotiating with the North Vietnamese Communists to arrive at a peace agreement-DH] The students told Alinsky that they were thinking about picketing or disrupting Bush’s address. That’s the wrong approach, he rejoined–not very relative and besides, causing a disruption might get them thrown out of school [Not very likely-DH] He told them, instead, to go hear the speech dressed up as members of the Ku Klux Klan, and whenever Bush said something in defense of the Vietnam War, they should cheer and wave placards, reading ‘The K.K.K. supports Bush.’ And that is what the students did with very successful, attention-getting results.

This vignette tells you everything your really need to know about Alinsky’s ethics and his attitude towards means and ends. Lenin once said that the purpose of a political argument is not to refute your opponent ‘ but to wipe him from the face of the earth.’ The mission of Alinsky radicals is a mission of destruction.

Obama and Alinsky: Take From Haves and Give to Have-Nots

October 25, 2010

Obama and Alinsky: Take From Haves and Give to Have-Nots

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary.

On page 31, he quotes and interprets Alinsky:

Alinsky’s book could easily be called Machiavellian Rules for Radicals, after the man who devised principles of statehood and advice for rulers in his book, The Prince. In Alinsky’s view, the difference between the unethical behavior counseled by Machiavelli and the unethical behavior he would like to see practiced by radicals lies solely in the fact that their political enemies are different. ‘The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power,’ Alinsky writes, ‘Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-nots on how to take it away’.

For Alinsky, politics is a zero sum exercise, because it is war. No matter what Alinsky radicals say publicly or how moderate they appear, they are at war. This provides them with a great tactical advantage since other actors in the political arena are not at war. The other actors actually embrace the system, which commits all parties to compromise and to the peaceful resolution of conflicts. It commits them to a pragmatism of ends as well as means. Not every wish can be satisfied. By contrast, Alinsky radicals have an unwavering end, which is to attack the so-called Haves until they are finally defeated. In other words, to undermine the system that allows them to earn and possess more than others. Such a system, according to the radicals, is one of ‘social injustice,’ and what they want is ‘social justice.’ The unwavering end of such radicals is a communism of results.

President Obama: Student, Teacher, Practitioner of Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”.

October 24, 2010

President Obama: Student, Teacher, Practitioner of Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals”

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary.

On page 28, he quotes and interprets Alinsky:

[The] failure of many of our younger activists to understand the art of communication has been disastrous,’ writes Alinsky. What he really means is their honesty has been disastrous, their failure to understand the art of mis-communication. This is the precise art that he teaches radicals who are trying  [to] impose socialism on a country whose people understand that socialism destroys freedom: Don’t sell it as socialism; sell it as ‘progressivism,’ ‘economic democracy,’ and ‘social justice.’

The strategy of working within the system until you can accumulate enough power to destroy it was what sixties radicals called ‘boring from within.’ It was a strategy that the New Left despised even as Alinsky and his followers practiced it. Alinsky and his followers infiltrated the War on Poverty, made alliances with the Kennedys and the Democratic Party, and secured funds from the federal government. Like termites, they set about to eat away at the foundations building in expectation that one day they could cause its collapse.

Alinsky’s advice can be summed up in the following way. Even though you are at war with the system, don’t confront it as an opposing army; join it and undermine it as a fifth column from within. To Achieve this infiltration you must work inside the system for the time being.

Our Fight For Survival Continues

October 24, 2010

Our Fight For Survival Continues

Sorry Frank, through oversight, I failed to post your thoughts and reference to my comments section. I apologize and will therefore put it in a main post, at this late time.

I recommend that everyone take time to read this post. There is truth to it…just as there is truth to the fact that radical Islam is a threat to our existence and so is our own indigenous progressive politicians. The fact is that radicals of any stripe all know that the way to destroy any system is to use its own rules against it, and then ridicule its hypocrisy. The easiest targets of all are the liberal democracies.

Our fight for survival continues.

Government: Honesty, Not Force.

October 22, 2010

Founder's Quote Daily

“This I hope will be the age of experiments in government, and that their basis will be founded in principles of honesty, not of mere force.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Adams, 1796

This quote is provided by Founder’s Quotes Daily or Townhall.com

The Obama administration’s health care bill was imposed through both deception and force. It is a prime example of Saul Alinsky’s strategies (Rules For Radicals) for social revolution and President Obama’s dedication to these dishonest and destructive methods..

No! To An Openly Gay Military

October 21, 2010

No! To Openly Gay Military

The following  post is one from the past. The topic is once again timely, as this issue is in the courts again.

The military is not a place for political social initiatives and social experimentation. The job of the military is to kill our enemies and destroy their infrastructure  i order that we may survive.  Anything that detracts, in the slightest, from that mission must be rejected.

Sexual behavior between men and women (now mixed together) in our  military is already degrading our effectiveness, as never before. Sexual behavior between men and men, and women and women will simply catalyze this sinkhole of a mess.

Wake-up America!

VTM, 10/21/10

A USA Today February 3, 2010 article (p. 6A) presented the following:

“Repealing the policy against openly Gay men and Lesbians in the military ‘would be the right thing to do’.” This is according to the Nations top uniformed military officer, Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman of the Join Chiefs of staff.

He went on to say, “ However, eliminating the current ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy will cause some disruption in the force.”

Admiral Mullen further stated: “Allowing Lesbians and Gay men to serve openly is an issue of integrity–theirs as individuals and ours as an institution. I also believe that great young men and women of our military can and would accommodate such a change”.

Senator John McCain’s response was the following: “At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services we should not be seeking to overturn the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell policy’.”

So there is the issue. You can decide as you wish. But, I have long ago made my decision and it is not favorable to this primarily political movement which threatens the strength of our military. 
I believe that I am qualified to speak to this issue in many ways because I have had a good amount of experience with Gay and Lesbian individuals and issues. As a psychotherapist, I have done my best to help them and their families cope with the many social problems associated with this way of life and I have felt great compassion for all concerned. I have happily worked with, liked and respected, many Gays and Lesbians in numerous professional venues. Finally, and most relevant to the present issue, I was accused of being Gay and investigated by an agency of the federal government when I was in the Navy.

Here’s my story. 

In 1960 they were building my submarine. It was a brand new Fleet Ballistic nuclear powered  submarine. It was armed with 16 multiple nuclear war-headed missiles. Our submarine played an important role in the “cold war” against Russia. The strategy was one of “Mutually Assured Destruction”. If they destroyed us, they knew for certain that we would destroy them and nothing could stop us. Those were the “good ol’ days”. Mutually assured destruction would appear to be irrelevant to our new mortal enemies who’s God handsomely rewards their self-destruction in the service of His goals.

While our submarine was being built our crew lived ashore for a while. A new shipmate invited my best friend and I to share his apartment. It was our second night there when my buddy shook me awake in the early morning. He was in a panic: “Moe! X grabbed my ‘cock’ last night! I’m getting out of here! We immediately left to look for another apartment.

The Gay sailor was a higher rank than we were, we were just 19 yrs. of age and did not know what to do. Should we tell? What will happen to us? Do we keep our mouths shut? We were pretty shook-up. Regrettably, we made the wrong decision and we kept quiet.

The Gay guy did the same thing to another sailor, of equal rank, and that sailor told an officer about the incident. Soon my best buddy and I were under suspicion and investigation for being homosexuals (the term used in that day). We were scared to death.

My heart was in my throat as the intimidating men in civilian suits interrogated me. All I could do is what my parents taught me: I anxiously told the truth. One of the men leaned into my face and aggressively accused me of “corn-holing” my buddy. My fear turned to anger and indignation as I raised my voice and profanely corrected the man’s point of view. I was dismissed shortly after that. I never hear another word about the incident, except from my shipmates. They sometimes teased my buddy and I about the incident, but they all knew the truth—we were “pitifully trapped” in our heterosexuality.

Our homosexual shipmate simply vanished, to our great relief.

Looking back, from my perspective of 69 years of age, I do not hate or despise my short-term homosexual shipmate. He was a young man driven to desperation by his ungoverned sexuality. I hope he lived happily ever-after. He simply had no business on my submarine, or in any other branch of our military.

I am in favor of the current “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

If we choose to do the “Openly Gay” social experiment in the United States Military it will be increasingly burdened with new social, ethical, administrative, logistical, investigative and legal entanglements. At just the moment when our military can least afford such distractions.

As Admiral Mullen stated: “Allowing Lesbians and Gay men to serve openly is an issue of integrity…..”. Of course, it is a matter of integrity during a time of  war when our military must remain the most fierce and effective fighting force in the world— or all may be lost. It is a matter of Admiral Mullen’s integrity, which he has surrendered to the Obama administration’s mad dash to impose as many self-defeating progressive policies on this Nation as he can, before he loses the power of the Presidency.

I would like to see Admiral Mullen’s resignation.

Good Luck America!
