Obama’s Scandal-Free Presidency Lie

May 17, 2020

Obama’s Scandal Free Presidency Lie

Yep, Marxist revolutionaries constantly lie, cheat, and deceive. Their behavior is remarkably similar to those that can rightfully be diagnosed as sociopaths, psychopaths, and those who are anti-social personality disordered.

They know if they tell lies often enough, that a significant number of naive observers will soon start to believe their lies. They particularly like to target the young, impressionable and idealistic segment of any population. Regarding the older, more propaganda resistant population, their favorite methods are trumping-up (a pun is intended) reputation smears and phony legal actions to neutralize them and strike fear into their peers.

Lying, deceiving, intimidating, persecuting, propagandizing and fomenting population conflict are important tools among other Marxist revolutionary strategies. 

So are infiltrating and getting control of education, religion, the judiciary, the media, and governments at all levels. Getting control of a populations guns is also key to their success. All of this is particularly effective when the popular media floods a population with revolutionary lying propaganda.

Only the uninformed or blind leftist-ideologues will fail to see that America is now in the midst of its own Marxist Revolution.

Leftists and the naive like to tell others that Obama’s Presidency was free of scandals. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Below is a near endless list of Obama’s DETECTED scandals, some are small, but many are huge. Virtually all of these scandals listed have the effect of addicting citizens to governmental handouts, increasing divisiveness between population identities and economic strata, weakening our constitution and law enforcement, increasing debt, damaging America’s international reputation, weakening our military, and much more.  

All of Obama’s scandals are designed to grow central government control of its citizens and intensify media propaganda against America’s best interests.

The Psychology of Morality: Religion vs Atheism

January 20, 2012

The Psychology of Morality: Religion vs Atheism

There are clear reasons why secular-based moral behavior is likely to be weaker than religiously based moral behavior.

Psychologists know, and generally teach their students that immediate consequences (reinforcement and punishment) most powerfully influence behavior. However, Dr. Richard Malott (A professor of psychology at Western Michigan University) has made a special exception to that rule for humans who have mastered the use of language and who can well experience, read about and hear about the past, present. Humans can also imagine, or be informed of future probable events, and they can estimate the size and impact of those consequences for themselves and others.

Professor Malott observes (and so can you), that immediate consequences that are small and not certain are not so likely to influence our behavior. Familiar examples of this weak control would be wearing a seat belt to avoid injury in case of an automobile collision, exercising regularly to avoid a host of possible health difficulties, or brushing our teeth three times a day to avoid cavities, etc..

The control of our behavior is much more powerful when consequences that are delayed, are also very large and very certain. We would be unlikely to attempt to fly to airplane to a destination if we did not know, for certain, that we had enough fuel to arrive safely. A mariner would most likely avoid voyaging in the direction of a developing hurricane.

Of course immediate, large, and very certain consequences control our behavior best. Humans normally avoid stepping in front of a speeding automobile, walking of cliffs, and petting rattle snakes.

But more to the point, for those who believe in God, both immediate cognitive-emotional (guilty thoughts and feelings), social (social disapproval) consequences;  and delayed spiritual consequences (Heaven or Hell) related to moral and immoral behavior can be very big, and very certain .

For non believers, there are no spiritual consequences. Furthermore secular social consequences are often small, delayed, and improbable for religiously based moral prescriptions (tell the truth, treat others kindly, don’t steal, etc.).

On the other hand immoral behavior earns relatively immediate, large, and certain physiological reinforcement (pornography and sex = novel stimulation and orgasm, ingestion of drugs and alcohol = reduced anxiety and rewarding changes in states of consciousness, Gambling and violence = physiological excitement and dominance). Furthermore, individuals  will easily find social contexts in which to behave in immoral ways and gain positive reinforcement from others.

To the believer, “the wages of sin is death”. To the secularist humanist, all too often, the wages of sin are more immediate, larger and more certain reinforcement.

“Spread The Wealth Around”, President Obama

“Spread The Wealth Around”, President Obama

Founder's Quote Daily

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, 1816

“State Capitalism” and “Junk GDP”

April 15, 2011

“State Capitalism” and “Junk GDP”

The following quote is taken from Trickle Up Poverty: Obama’s Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security, by Michael Savage.

I quote:

Among the many problems with what historian Amity Shales has called “state capitalism” is that it tends to produce, again in Shales’ words, “junk GDP.” With government dictating what technologies must be pursued and developed, and providing billions of dollars in incentives for their pursuit, we lose the trail-and-error resilience of a free market, the small projects, privately funded, that actually develop the technologies that work and that make our lives better and more efficient.

End of quote.
