Marxism In America ? It’s Already Happening!

November 29, 2010

Marxism In America? It’s Already Happening! 

Most Americans are oblivious to the Marxist nature of the Obama Administration. In previous posts, I have revealed President Obama’s strong involvement in the Saul Alinsky Model for advancing the causes of socialism in America through lies, deception and other ruthless means.

The following video provides a clearer context for these allegations. As a psychologist, I have long ago learned a valuable rule-of-thumb: “Listen to what they say, but more importantly, watch what they do.”

I ask you to please click on the following URL  to view a video of the well-documented Marxist strategies now unfolding within our Federal Government. Take time to look-up the supporting references for  Lt. General (Ret) W. G. Boykin’s video warning of our Obama’s Marxist plans for America.

Feds: Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Ore.

By WILLIAM McCALL, AP

PORTLAND, Ore. — Undercover agents in a sting operation arrested a Somali-born teenager just as he tried blowing up a van full of what he believed were explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, federal authorities said.

The bomb was a fake supplied by the agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him.

Yelling “Allahu Akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great!” — Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors.

“The threat was very real,” said Arthur Balizan, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon. “Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale,”

The FBI affidavit that outlined the investigation alleges that Mohamud planned the attack for months, at one point mailing bomb components to FBI operatives, whom he believed were assembling the device.

It said Mohamud was warned several times about the seriousness of his plan, that women and children could be killed, and that he could back out, but he told agents: “Since I was 15 I thought about all this;” and “It’s gonna be a fireworks show … a spectacular show.”

Mohamud, a naturalized U.S. citizen living in Corvallis, was charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. A court appearance was set for Monday. Few details were available about him late Friday.

Authorities allowed the plot to proceed in order to build up enough evidence to charge the suspect with attempt.

Officials didn’t say if the suspect had any ties to other Americans recently accused of trying to carry out attacks on U.S. soil, including alleged efforts in May by a Pakistan-born man to set off a car bomb near Times Square or another Pakistan-born Virginia resident accused last month in a bomb plot to kill commuters.

U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton released federal court documents to The Associated Press and the Oregonian newspaper that show the sting operation began in June after an undercover agent learned that Mohamud had been in regular e-mail contact with an “unindicted associate” in Pakistan’s northwest, a frontier region where al-Qaida and Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents are strong.

The two used coded language in which the FBI believes Mohamud discussed traveling to Pakistan to prepare for “violent jihad,” the documents said.

In June an FBI agent contacted Mohamud “under the guise of being affiliated with” the suspected terrorist. But the documents did not say how federal officials first became aware of Mohamud.

An undercover agent met with him a month later in Portland, where they “discussed violent jihad,” according to the court documents.

As a trial run, Mohamud and agents detonated a bomb in Oregon’s backcounry earlier this month.

“This defendant’s chilling determination is a stark reminder that there are people — even here in Oregon — who are determined to kill Americans,” Holton said.

Friday, an agent and Mohamud drove to downtown Portland in a white van that carried six 55-gallon drums with detonation cords and plastic caps, but all of them were inert, the complaint states.

They left the van near the downtown ceremony site and went to a train station where Mohamud was given a cell phone that he thought would blow up the vehicle, according to the complaint. There was no detonation when he dialed, and when he tried again federal agents and police made their move.

Omar Jamal, first secretary to the Somali mission to the United Nations, condemned the plot and urged Somalis to cooperate with police and the FBI.

“Talk to them and tell them what you know so we can all be safe,” Jamal said.

Somalia Foreign Minister Mohamed Abullahi Omaar said his government is “ready and willing” to offer the U.S. any assistance it may need to prevent similar attempts.

“It is a tragic for the family of the young man, it is a tragic for the people he tried to harm. It is a tragic for all of us here,” said Omaar, whose government is holed up in a few blocks of the capital, Mogadishu, while much of the country’s southern and central regions are ruled by Islamist insurgents.

“Mohamud’s attempt is neither representative nor an example of Somalis. Somalis are peace loving people.”

Tens of thousands of Somalis have resettled in the United States since their country plunged into lawlessness in 1991.

U.S. authorities have been struggling against a recent spate of terror plans by U.S. citizens or residents.

In the Times Square plot, Faisal Shazhad allegedly tried to set off a car bomb at a bustling street corner. U.S. authorities had no intelligence about Shahzad’s plot until the smoking car turned up in Manhattan.

Late last month, Farooque Ahmed, 34, of Virginia was arrested and accused of casing Washington-area subway stations in what he thought was an al-Qaida plot to bomb and kill commuters. Similar to the Portland sting, the bombing plot was a ruse conducted over the past six months by federal officials.

And a year ago in another federal sting, 19-year-old Jordanian Hosam Smadi was arrested on charges he intended to bomb a downtown Dallas skyscraper. Federal officials said he placed what he believed was a car bomb outside the building but was instead a decoy device given him by an undercover FBI agent.

The Disaster Of Modern Liberalism

November 27, 2010

The Disaster Of Modern Liberalism

The Following quote is taken from Robert Bork’s book (1996) , Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline, pps. 64 & 65.

“The classical liberalism of the nineteenth century is widely and correctly admired, but we can now see that it was inevitably a transitional phase. The tendencies inherent in individualism were kept within bounds by the health of institutions other than the state, a common moral culture, and the strength of religion. Liberalism drained the power from the institutions.  We no longer have a common moral culture and our religion, while pervasive, seems increasingly unable to affect actual behavior.

Modern liberalism is one branch of the rupture that occurred in liberalism in the last century. The other branch is today called conservatism. American conservatism, neo or otherwise, in fact represents the older classical liberal tradition. Conservatism of the American variety is simply liberalism that accepts the constraints that a clear view of reality, including a recognition of the nature of human beings, places upon the main thrusts of liberalism–liberty and equality. The difference, it has been said, is that between a hard-headed and a sentimental liberalism. Sentimental liberalism, with its sweet view of human nature, naturally evolves into the disaster of modern liberalism.”

I pass it on to you and hope that God will bless you and your loved ones.

Liberalism, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness—Pushed Too Far

November 24, 2010

 
Liberalism, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness—Pushed Too Far
 
The following is taken from Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline, by Robert Bork.
 
“The consequence of liberalism, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness pushed too far are now apparent. Irving Kristol writes of ‘the clear signs of rot and decadence germinating within American society—a rot and decadence that was no longer the consequence of liberalism but was the actual agenda of contemporary liberalism…[S]ector after sector of American life has been ruthlessly corrupted by the liberal ethos. It is an ethos that aims simultaneously at political and social collectivism on the one hand, and moral anarchy on the other.’ I would add only that current liberalism’s rot and decadence is merely what liberalism has been moving towards for better than two centuries.” (p. 63)
 
End of quote.
 
The effects of growing liberalism and its resulting chaos may increase  “feelings of Freedom” for many, in the short-term.
 
In the long-run, liberalism results in social, economic and political chaos. This leads to governmentally imposed restrictions and enforcements that are inimical to the pursuit of an enduring and meaningful happiness for almost everyone (save those in political power and control). 
 
Advancing liberalism also imposes increasing controls upon what can be spoken, written, and (to a lesser degree) what is thought. Liberalism bans more and more of our behaviors though its diabolical and amazingly powerful social-control tool called “political correctness”.

Do Not Let Congress Favor Itself

Do Not Let Congress Favor Itself

Congress must not be allowed salaries much greater than the average citizen, they must not be held above the law, they must not have a greater retirement plan than the average citizen, they must not be provided a better health care plan than the average citizen. In general, they must not be more privileged than the average citizen. Moreover, they should serve under the restraints of term limits so they do not become tempted by decades of accumulated power to enter into corrupt dealings.

The following quote by Thomas Jefferson allocates the responsibility for fixing the current mess that we call Congress t0 you and I, the average citizens of America.

“If it be asked, what is to restrain the House of Representatives from making legal discriminations in favor of themselves and a particular class of the society? I answer, the genius of the whole system, the nature of just and constitutional laws, and above all the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of America, a spirit which nourishes freedom, and in return is nourished by it.” –James Madison, Federalist No. 57, 1788

Modern Liberalism: Chaos + Chaos = Chaos

November 22, 2010

Modern Liberalism: Chaos + Chaos = Chaos

The following  quote is taken from pps. 61 & 62 of  Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline, by Robert Bork (1996). This book is a must read, if you would like to know how America is being destroyed right now, before your very eyes.

“The perpetual motion of liberalism was described by T. S. Eliot half a century ago”: ‘That liberalism may be a tendency towards something very different from itself, is a possibility in its nature…It is a movement  not so much defined by something definite.’ “What liberalism has constantly moved away from are the constraints on personal liberty imposed by religion, morality, law, family, and community.

“Liberalism moves, therefore, toward radical individualism and the corruption of standards that movement entails.”  ‘By destroying traditional social habits of the people, by dissolving their natural collective consciousness into individual constituents, by licensing the opinions of the most foolish, by substituting instruction for education, by encouraging cleverness rather than wisdom, the upstart rather than the qualified…Liberalism can prepare the way for that which is its own negation: the artificial mechanised or brutalised control which is a desperate remedy of its chaos.’

In my view,  modern liberalism’s defense against Islamic terrorism is chaos. Its defense against traditional American moral values is chaos.

Chaos + chaos = chaos: We lose!

Your Body Cavity Probe: 17 Peanuts and a Half-Can of Pop!

Your Body Cavity Probe: 17 Peanuts and a Half-Can of Pop!

With regard to the social uproar and political conflict over airport breast and genital pat-downs and full (virtually nude)body  scans—all is going according to plan.

Somwhere in their caves, the terrorists are rolling on their dirt floors in laughter.

They will soon have us over a barrel awaiting our pre-flight body cavity probes. 

 Shortly thereafter, on our flight, we will be consoled with 17 peanuts and a half-can of pop.

I recommend Israeli style profiling. It’s less expensive, less humiliating— and the terrorists have not beaten them yet.

“Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” –Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788
