President Barack Obama wasn't kidding when he said he was planning to "fundamentally change America." Not even a little.
First of all, we have "Operation Overwhelm." It's mind-boggling how much news and information there is to cover right now. But that's exactly what they want. There's too much to pay attention to, by design.
They are systematic trying to create a Cult of Obama. This is creepy, and should be taken very seriously. It's not necessarily about Obama himself though, it's more specifically about the communist vision of the "Great Leader." The National Endowment for the Arts is even in on the act!
What Would Jesus Do? Ask Obama.
A communist flag will be raised on the South Lawn of the White House this September 20, 2009.
Yeah ... there's no waayyy there's a conspiracy of any kind going on. Not a chance. This is all just random happenstance.
Well, we can relax, because the bad old days of the Bush administration, when government agencies routinely spied on the antiwar movement and other dissidents, are over — right?
Wrong – very wrong.
The indispensable Amy Goodman has the scoop: The Seattle Port Militarization Resistance (SPMR) group in Washington state thought their listserv coordinator, who went by the name "John Jacob," was one of them: a dedicated antiwar activist and self-described anarchist. They trusted him, they put him in a key position, they befriended him – and then they found out that he was a government informant.
Former Vice President Dan Quayle once said, “Diversity is our strength.”
After an angry black/white confrontation last July in Cambridge, Massachusetts—Professor Henry Louis Gates and Police Officer James Crowley sipped beers at the White House to iron out their differences. They did not succeed.
John Kenneth Galbraith said, "Once the visitor was told rather repetitively that this city was the melting pot; never before in history had so many people of such varied languages, customs, colors and culinary habits lived so amicably together. Although New York remains peaceful by most standards, this self-congratulation is now less often heard, since it was discovered some years ago that racial harmony depended unduly on the willingness of the blacks and the Puerto Ricans to do for the other races the meanest jobs at the lowest wages and then to return to live by themselves in the worst slums."
Manhattan Institute journalist heather McDonald wrote, “Blacks commit 82 percent of the shootings in New York City.”
Since the signing of the U.S. Constitution, race remains the most contentious predicament facing Americans—and, it worsens by the day.
In my inbox today, this e-mail message from Mitch Stewart of the Obama "grassroots" group Organizing For American, to the spam-listers:
At the beginning of August, President Obama wrote to the OFA community to challenge us to work hard, break through the noise and give the American people a voice in the fight for health insurance reform.
It wasn't easy: With Congress back home, special interests and partisan attack groups went into overdrive spreading lies, and the media seemed to broadcast any story of conflict or division they could find.
But you accepted the President's challenge -- and delivered.
Birds of a Feather?
I wonder if Van Jones believes Michael Jackson is still alive too?
Nope. Nothing strange going on here ... Just politics as usual ...
Oh, btw, on September 8, 2009 the indoctrination of our children begins. "Not content to try to force young adults into performing 'national service', Comrade Obamnin and his Politburo want to enlist the nation's children in the glorious effort to count everybody and anybody, especially non-citizens, for the 2010 Census."
At least their not indoctrinating pre-school children.
Obama has a history of supporting radical, leftist education reform. Take, for instance, Barck Obama’s association with Bill Ayers on the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. One of the great missteps of John McCain in a wide field of choices was to emphasize Ayers’ past terrorist activities with the Weathermen rather than his radical education agenda of which Obama was an active supporter ...
Look no further than the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was a dismal failure, had as its priorities. The CAC did not fund schools directly. Instead, it paid money to what were referred to as “external partners" ... community organizing groups like the Association of Community Organizations for reform Now (ACORN).
Ayers wanted teachers to instruct against oppression and to push kids towards political beliefs he espoused valued. He valued those beliefs more than actual education. Obama agreed, and for several years worked in close partnership with Ayers to implement that educational policy. What does that say of obama's ideas about mainstream education?
Slavery will grow under Obama’s Presidency. Obama plans to “expand and fund AmeriCorps from 75,000 slots today to 250,000” through the creation of five new Corps. Let’s take a look at the description of Obama’s proposed program, the Classroom Corps, taking particular note of the language:
Classroom Corps: to help teachers and students, with a priority placed on high-need and underserved schools. The Corps will enlist retired or mid-career engineers and scientists to provide support for math and science teachers in the form of mentoring, student tutoring, curriculum development, and technology support. It will recruit neighborhood civic, business and faith leaders to offer after-school programs and community service opportunities. And the Corps will draft parents, grandparents, college students or community members to mentor and provide one-on-one assistance to students, and assist with classroom activities under the direction of teachers. (Emphasis added.)
Using such words as “enlist” and “draft” are surely not the most marketable terms for implementing and expanding a program which includes the word “Corps” – but at least the involuntary servitude is less disguised through these verbs. Perhaps people will not be as receptive to this thinly-veiled form of slavery.
Each November around Thanksgiving every Roman Catholic parish takes up a collection for the nonprofit Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), a program run under the auspices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). Last November, under intense pressure from Catholic parishioners, CCHD finally stopped collecting money for the fraud-ridden radical group ACORN. But the Bishops’ Conference continues to support other radical community activist groups with similar goals, such as the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) founded in Chicago by Saul Alinsky, the founding father of “community organizing.” President Obama, a self-professed community organizer, has ties to both ACORN and CCHD.
It seems the prodigious Senator Ted Kennedy can manifest political quagmires from beyond the grave. The following post comes from the Cato Institute, an organization I admire. What you will read is a primary example of how politicians care little for the average citizen, the will of the people, and rule of law. To me, the Democratic party is the most dangerous political organization to our Republic.
Strange days ...
