The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals
artorius castus blog ^ | Unknown | Cleon Skousen

Posted on 06/02/2008 3:17:47 PM PDT by cardinal4

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

Iron Maiden - The Prisoner

Inspiration taken from the show The Prisoner, but this is how I feel.

I’m not a prisoner, I’m a free man.

I believe the total takeover is about to happen. I guess we are going to just watch it happen, then Bit*h.

Heaven help us.

There’s a fix, and it’s a doozy.

But it’s already been done, and it worked.

Perhaps we’ll have to make it work again.

Perhaps. I would have joined the Army years ago, or even now but short, out-of-shape 25 year olds don’t make good soldiers.

Read this and I think you will agree the oil industry has already been Nationalized in the US;

It was common in those days, as it is in ours, to identify the Communists as leftist and the Nazis as rightists, as if they stood on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. But Mises knew differently. They both sported the same ideological pedigree of socialism. “The German and Russian systems of socialism have in common the fact that the government has full control of the means of production. It decides what shall be produced and how. It allots to each individual a share of consumer’s goods for his consumption.”

The difference between the systems, wrote Mises, is that the German pattern “maintains private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary prices, wages, and markets.” But in fact the government directs production decisions, curbs entrepreneurship and the labor market, and determines wages and interest rates by central authority. “Market exchange,” says Mises, “is only a sham.”

Mises’s account is confirmed by a remarkable book that appeared in 1939, published by Vanguard Press in New York City (and unfortunately out of print today). It is The Vampire Economy: Doing Business Under Fascism by Guenter Reimann, then a 35-year old German writer. Through contacts with German business owners, Reimann documented how the “monster machine” of the Nazis crushed the autonomy of the private sector through onerous regulations, harsh inspections, and the threat of confiscatory fines for petty offenses.

“Industrialists were visited by state auditors who had strict orders to examine the balance sheets and all bookkeeping entries of the company or individual businessman for the preceding two, three or more years until some error or false entry was found,” explains Reimann. “The slightest formal mistake was punished with tremendous penalties. A fine of millions of marks was imposed for a single bookkeeping error.”

Reimann quotes from a businessman’s letter: “You have no idea how far state control goes and how much power the Nazi representatives have over our work. The worst of it is that they are so ignorant. These Nazi radicals think of nothing except ‘distributing the wealth.’ Some businessmen have even started studying Marxist theories, so that they will have a better understanding of the present economic system.

“While state representatives are busily engaged in investigating and interfering, our agents and salesmen are handicapped because they never know whether or not a sale at a higher price will mean denunciation as a ‘profiteer’ or ‘saboteur,’ followed by a prison sentence. You cannot imagine how taxation has increased. Yet everyone is afraid to complain. Everywhere there is a growing undercurrent of bitterness. Everyone has his doubts about the system, unless he is very young, very stupid, or is bound to it by the privileges he enjoys.

“There are terrible times coming. If only I had succeeded in smuggling out $10,000 or even $5,000, I would leave Germany with my family. Business friends of mine are convinced that it will be the turn of the ‘white Jews’ (which means us, Aryan businessmen) after the Jews have been expropriated. The difference between this and the Russian system is much less than you think, despite the fact that we are still independent businessmen.”

As Mises says, “independent” only in a decorous sense. Under fascism, explains this businessman, the capitalist “must be servile to the representatives of the state” and “must not insist on rights, and must not behave as if his private property rights were still sacred.” It’s the businessman, characteristically independent, who is “most likely to get into trouble with the Gestapo for having grumbled incautiously.”

“Of all businessmen, the small shopkeeper is the one most under control and most at the mercy of the party,” recounts Reimann. “The party man, whose good will he must have, does not live in faraway Berlin; he lives right next door or right around the corner. This local Hitler gets a report every day on what is discussed in Herr Schultz’s bakery and Herr Schmidt’s butcher shop. He would regard these men as ‘enemies of the state’ if they complained too much. That would mean, at the very least, the cutting of their quota of scarce and hence highly desirable goods, and it might mean the loss of their business licenses. Small shopkeepers and artisans are not to grumble.”

“Officials, trained only to obey orders, have neither the desire, the equipment, nor the vision to modify rules to suit individual situations,” Reimann explains. “The state bureaucrats, therefore, apply these laws rigidly and mechanically, without regard for the vital interests of essential parts of the national economy. Their only incentive to modify the letter of the law is in bribes from businessmen, who for their part use bribery as their only means of obtaining relief from a rigidity which they find crippling.”

Says another businessman: “Each business move has become very complicated and is full of legal traps which the average businessman cannot determine because there are so many new decrees. All of us in business are constantly in fear of being penalized for the violation of some decree or law.”

Business owners, explains another entrepreneur, cannot exist without a “collaborator,” i.e., a “lawyer” with good contacts in the Nazi bureaucracy, one who “knows exactly how far you can circumvent the law.” Nazi officials, explains Reimann, “obtain money for themselves by merely taking it from capitalists who have funds available with which to purchase influence and protection,” paying for their protection “as did the helpless peasants of feudal days.”

“It has gotten to the point where I cannot talk even in my own factory,” laments a factory owner. “Accidentally, one of the workers overheard me grumbling about some new bureaucratic regulation and he immediately denounced me to the party and the Labor Front office.”

Reports another factory owner: “The greater part of the week I don’t see my factory at all. All this time I spend in visiting dozens of government commissions and offices in order to get raw materials I need. Then there are various tax problems to settle and I must have continual conferences and negotiations with the Price Commission. It sometimes seems as if I do nothing but that, and everywhere I go there are more leaders, party secretaries, and commissars to see.”

In this totalitarian paradigm, a businessman, declares a Nazi decree, “practices his functions primarily as a representative of the State, only secondarily for his own sake.” Complain, warns a Nazi directive, and “we shall take away the freedom still left you.”

In 1933, six years before Reimann’s book, Victor Klemperer, a Jewish academic in Dresden, made the following entry in his diary on February 21: “It is a disgrace that gets worse with every day that passes. And there’s not a sound from anyone. Everyone’s keeping his head down.”

It is impossible to escape the parallels between Guenter Reimann’s account of doing business under the Nazis and the “compassionate,” “responsible,” and regulated “capitalism” of today’s U.S. economy today. At least the German government was frank enough to give the right name to its system of economic control.

I am 42, just out of range for the draft, should one Islamic nation or another decide to nuke 200,000 US troops. In case they try to draft me anyway, my asthma and DD-214 should sufficiently scare them that I would be more trouble than worth in battle. Those years are over. I’m lucky if I can fake a decent basketball game with soldiers.

Oh BS!!! The average capitalist porker in America is doing just fine. If true conservatives want to feel sorry for someone, how about those working class slobs who keep the country running. Big Business has too much power in America and big business ain’t far behind big government when it comes to tromping on our liberties.

Proles, unite! Raise the minwage! End corporate welfare! Do it in the name of the old timey conservatives who had some common sense.

I've just about come apart at the seams for the last week or so when Maxine Waters told the oil executives that the Dems are thinking about nationalizing them and I haven't heard a PEEP from ANYBODY about it. I think this is revolution time if it comes about. This country doesn't operate this way. I can't believe no one caught this and Rush and Hanity aren't screaming from the rooftops.

Maybe we should just give Hugo a big wet one with some tongue and all "just get along".

Actually I am a bit confused by his post to me which was this:

“Oh BS!!! The average capitalist porker in America is doing just fine. If true conservatives want to feel sorry for someone, how about those working class slobs who keep the country running. Big Business has too much power in America and big business ain’t far behind big government when it comes to tromping on our liberties.

parsy, who is digging out his Red Flag. (OOps, its the stars and bars...nevermind)”

He sounds to be anti-capitalist and anti-conservative to me. Just maybe sarcasm isn’t his strong suit. eh?

So considering his post to me I asked him if he happens to be a commie troll.

Yeah, “gay marriage is no threat to traditional marriage”

“there’s no bigger plan behind promiscuity, divorce, gay marriage, the sexual revolution, abortion, etc...”

(except they all destroy the traditional family)

do a search on stupid and satanic leftists here on FR.

There is an article on it.

Some libs, like my inlaws are of the “stupid” variety, either in denial or ignorant of the end game, ignorant of the consequences of the policies that make them feel good.

Then, there are the “satanic” variety that KNOW that their policies will destroy America, its freedom, and its greatness.

If you’d look at his sign-up date and history, you’d see that 99% of his replies are usually well made sarcasm. I can only laugh out loud, and admit some jealousy, in his observations.

WRT our corporatist government, unless we can get the USSC decision reversed that opened the gates for corporate personhood, we’ll never get back the “Government Of the People, By the People, and For the People”. As my Dad told me long ago, we won the battles in WWII — but we’re losing the war.

No. Not a commie. I wouldn’t like waiting in line 8 hours for toothpaste. Maybe a progressive conservative would be a better title. I think conservatives have bought hook, line, and sinker into lazy faire capitalism. Conservatism can go to the dark side pretty quickly if it is used as a tool against change and against empowerment of the people against big gov’t and big business.

Have to drop in occasionally to see if my legacy here is being upheld. Apparently, it ain’t. Oh well, they laughed at Billie Potter, too.

Anyway, I told y’all 6 or 7 years ago when I left the GOP that their blind subservience to big business and credit card companies was going to doom them. Bush, Sr. was right and we should have become a kinder, gentler nation with our own people.

I been around awhile. Been busy with Project Ultimate Freep for years. (PUF). Have turned countless liberal blogsites into bastions of ranting lunatics. (Like DU).

This was probably before your time. I am the one who uncovered the Algorian plot in 2000 to turn back the nations atomic clock in order to get more votes in Florida.

I am concservative in that I believe in strong nat’l defense, gun rights, welfare for the needy only, personal responsibility, etc. However, on economic issues, I think GOP and conservatives in general have lost their minds. Too in bed with the spreadsheet geeks.

parsy, who has been accused of many thimgs. (But never convicted!)
