I second that......”No Bernadine, the only opportunity here is that Americans finally get to see you and your communist traitor friends without a filter. “

It is time to destroy the power that these vile people have in our universities and curricula and in TV and movies. Bring back classical knowledge and virtue, those things which support a free society.

She says that the US government is run by terrorists. Obama ought to love that.

She also refers to the “late capitalism.” Basically, she’s admitting that the US is no longer capitalist. Seems pretty clear that socialism is not working.

I agree with her. The revolution will however be bourgeois and it will purge the past century of leftist, statist, encroaching tyranny. It is not all that close though. There must first be true and complete financial collapse, or the overt effort to impose authoritarian or totalitarian control.

We are closer to something resembling the Spanish Civil War, or the Romanian Revolution of 1989, than we are to Red October.

“Dying America is a Tremendous Opportunity For U.S. Revolution”: Bernardine Dohrn

In truth, it may very be so, Ms. Dorhn.

But it won’t be the type of “revolution” that you believe it to be....

Do you really believe that is going to happen? I certainly want it but w/o a full on revolution it won't, IMO. The sheeple are not that distressed. We will see a breakup before any true revolution. We are in a totalitarian state today - just many haven't realized it yet.

From a few months ago: Justice Department: 'Zip it' on Ayers probe Administration muzzles police officers who want to reopen murder case

"The Obama Justice Department instructed San Francisco police officials not to comment after top law enforcement officers there signed a letter accusing Weathermen radical Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, of being directly behind the 1970 bombing of San Francisco's police station that killed one sergeant and wounded nine others."

Bill Ayers's wealthy and politically influential parents protected them for years. Now the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble and their ideological issue in the MSM, universities, courts, Congress, the several administrations are protecting Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

Officer Down Memorial Page

Are they more important than this? Let's hear a jury of Americans say that Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers are innocent, not a bunch of Marxist bastards saying it.

“We will see a breakup before any true revolution.”

Agreed. But the factors for that are advanced and at work. The fiscal insanity of both parties, but principally the Democrats, is the direct culprit here.

“We are in a totalitarian state today - just many haven’t realized it yet.”

Agreed, but only in so far that the totalitarian survey stakes are out and the foundation is poured. The building is not yet erected or finished. Here, the guilt is heavy on both statist parties. eg: Republican DHS, EPA and federalized “education” oversight. Democrat “War” on Poverty, HealthControl, and activist judiciary. Both parties’ obscenely eager globalism, open border policies and surrender of US sovereignty.

Both parties are hostile to individual liberty, an armed and informed populace with freedom of movement and association, and American supremacy. Both parties are part of the problem.

Even here, many still cannot or will not see the extent of the decline, and the fact that the leadership of both parties are willfully complicit in it.

That is true...but this realization of indoctrination that has gone on for a century...created a vast impenetrable fog.

True knowledge to the masses really was hampered until after Reagan freed the airwaves to a certain extent and then the invention of the internet.....da*m what the freedom of information does.

You would have thought we would have understood when Chambers and McCarthy exposed the infiltration, but the communist media was too strong by then and destroyed the messenger and shaped (controlled) the responses by government officials.

What I really hate is that it has become really weird. The ignorant, worthless, proven criminal Communists have become, shall we say, royalty! Of course,

They can say and do what they please with no repercussions. In fact, they become “famous,” make more money, TV and media shows and book sales.

If Bernadine Dohrn egging on comes to fruition, the media Communists should pay dearly. Replaced with FREE PRESS, our beloved Republic will breathe easy and things will be restored back to normal quickly.

Ayers, Dohrn, et al 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble loved bombs and walls.

Popular among the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble was Cuba's To the wall!

"From the hoarse throats of 250,000 Cubans jammed before the presidential palace in Havana rose the chilling cry: 'Pa-re-don! To the wall! To the firing squad!' By whipping up a frenzy of hatred, Fidel Castro last week got mob approval for a resumption of the drumhead justice that earlier put to death 551 Cubans accused as supporters of ex-Dictator Fulgencio Batista. Now the blood purge would be aimed at defectors in the band of barbudos (bearded ones) who lifted him to power, of whom hundreds are now in prison." [My emphasis]

Also frequently uttered by the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble "Bring it all down, man." After all these years I now agree.

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble and their biological/ideological issue are now the Establishment.

This is just a start:

Ending the intentional censorship of ideas...making Political Correctness (cultural Marxism) illegal (which it is). No government money allowed for NPR—any “news” outlet because it can be nothing but agitprop for some corporation or politician. No government money for the arts—none.

All lobbying in Washington DC will be illegal...all bribery. 17th Amendment will be abolished.

End DOE immediately. It is unconstitutional.
Local control in public education with all decisions for curricula to be decided by the parents who will be the only ones allowed on the board. No public unions allowed. No “certification” from the government needed esp. for such worthless major as “child development” which is all about social engineering and conditioning.

Return the Marriage Contract to something meaningful and restore marriage as the fundamental building brick of society with emphasis on restoration of the idea that parents are the main teachers of their children. Promote the ideas which lead to flourishing human beings—who are most able to attain happiness to a high degree. The general welfare demands the promotion of “values” which produce the best results for people. No other model should be encouraged at the expense at the most perfect one. So laws should be based on the moral laws....the natural right of children to have a biological mother and father raise them. All laws should prefer this situation and NEVER undermine it.

Repeal of the unconstitutional IRS code, section 501-C-3 which limits ideas and speech of churches to fascist control by central government. Very unconstitutional.

Eliminate the IRS—the unconstitutional arm to destroy private property. No income tax. Property taxes adjusted to constitutional functions only.

Eliminate Legal Positivism from our legal system which has destroyed “Just Law” and creates law separated from morality. It is not appropriate in a legal system based on “the laws of nature and God’s law”—one where our rights are from God and not man. Legal Positivism is responsible for irrational and arbitrary laws based on whims and emotions which create unequal law—usually it gives power to a few politically connected over others (enemies). It is what is the basis of the destruction of our legal system which has destroyed the Rule of Law and makes it a political football now (and a joke). Nothing but a mafia (Holder) system.

Restore the Commerce Clause to its original meaning. No made-up rights for central government.

Judges have to uphold the Constitution and if violating their oath of office will be forced to resign immediately with no pension, if there can be proof of intentional undermining and ignoring or of incompetence. Judicial activism is unconstitutional and not allowed. Violates the intent of the Constitution and balance of power.

That’s just my start...... :)

Take out the TRASH!




Connect the dots…

The lawyer for Haji Juma Khan, who is being tried for drug trafficking for the purpose for supporting terrorism, is Sabrina Shroff, a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

The lawyer for Aafia Siddiqui, “the female Osama Bin Laden,” is Elizabeth Fink, a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

The lawyer for terrorist suspect Syed Fahad Hashmi is Sean Maher, a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

In 2003, a controversy arose around the case of National Lawyers Guild (NLG) member attorney Lynne Stewart, who was charged with transmitting terrorist communications from prison for Omar Abdel-Rahman, her former client and mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Stewart was ultimately convicted of the charges and sentenced to 28 months in federal prison “Lawyer Gets Prison Term in Terrorism Case.” The NLG supported Stewart, condemning the charges and the conviction

The pattern is undeniable, and it gets even more sordid.  Bernadine Dohrn, wife of Obama supporter William Ayers and believed to be the mastermind behind most of the Underground Weathermen’s anarchist activities, moved to New York

in 1969 to work for the National Lawyers Guild, an organization with which the Weather Underground and the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee worked very closely with in the following years. Weather Underground, a group that employed the anti-personnel bomb-making talents—or lack thereof—had as the lead defense in the case of terrorist Kathy Boudin, prominent “Guild” member Leonard Boudin (her father), Kathy Boudin received a 20-years-to-life sentence for her role in the 1981 Weatherman Nyack, New York Brinks robbery-murders.

The National Lawyers Guild in the old days was frequently identified as a legal front organization for the Communist Party. Sidney Hook described the individuals who founded the NLG as “not being capable of taking any stand that conflicts with the CPUSA (the Communist Party of the USA)”. In the 1950s the National Lawyers Guild refused to purge its members who were members of the Communist Party. Today there are Guild members who are cadres in a variety of communist groups along with a majority of unaffiliated members.

Michelle Obama and Bernadine Dohr worked for the same law firm, Sibley and Austin.  One of the first organizational meetings for Obama was held in the Ayers-Dohr house.  Obama has worked on several committees with Ayers.

The connection is clear and should be a red flag for all those who believe that Barack Obama’s relationship will Bill Ayers and his wife, is casual and insignificant.

While I wholeheartedly support all of your suggestions (except education) I would add the following:

** Our nation is in serious need of spiritual revival. We should also remember that a person's **most** important mission field is his own children. His second most important mission field is the children of his own congregation. Of course that means conservatives should get their own children out of the godless government schools and then work to see that the children of their own congregation have access to a thoroughly Christian private education that fully integrates their **specific** denomination's beliefs into all aspects of the curriculum.

** Every government school in this nation is godless in its worldview. All government owned and run schools are socialist-funded and managed by the voting mob collective. Simply by attending children learn to be comfortable with socialism, godless thinking, and collectivist control of their lives. All of them should be shut down.

** Voter fraud is treason and should be investigated with vigor, prosecuted, and punished with life imprisonment, ( maybe even public hanging.)

** We need a thoroughly conservative media outlet. I suggest an Internet based “radio” program and 24 hours “news channel”-style programing. Personally, I can't stand Fox's semi-conservativism and shyness about covering social issues. They have been despicable as well concerning Obama’s eligibility.

** To help in the demise of the godless government schools I think we should move to qualifying exams, ( as suggested by Charles Murray). The private qualifying exams could start as early as first grade and continue on to the graduate school level. The course material and testing could be completely free to the student, if the producers of the material accepted advertising. The producers could even become extremely rich. The fewer kids in institutional K-12 schools and college the less exposure they will have to the godless worldveiw of the schools and their communist teachers.

** K-12 education alone is a HUGE part of our taxes. More money is spent on K-12 communist indoctrination than on our military. ( Federal, state, and local combined.) Getting as many kids out of the godless communist government indoctrination centers would save TRILLIONS for the taxpayer and go a long way toward balancing the budget.

You are right—that the public schools are nothing but indoctrination centers—I have seen the curricula and it is downright evil for it’s dumbing down content and subtle, and not so subtle, encouragement of dysfunctional behavior.

That is why I advocate all local control and parents only board—no unions— to design their own curricula—could (and should because our rights come from God) be God-centered. The parents of the actual children in the school decide—(We the People) It is the most fundamental and important right of all—to raise your own children and determine their worldview.

I am not against public schools, but only if the State and Federal government are left out of everything—even certifications, etc. Parents are the best ones to decide the education of their children. If there is public school there would have to be vouchers, but now with mosques we have a major problem with indoctrination centers since their teachings are to overthrow our Constitution.

Back to the original design when children never entered a classroom until age seven and we had the highest literary rates. Prior to age seven, mothers need to see that children have all sorts of experiences with real life situations and read to them copiously. The marriage model of stay at home mother should be encouraged over every other type of system of child care. Grandparent is ok substitute and next best thing.

Child care outside the home should be discouraged (as it always was) until the 70’s when the feminists started to destroy the family and patriarchy and government helped with no-fault divorce laws which made the marriage contract a piece of cr*p. Just what Lenin did and he established day cares so he controlled the worldview of the upcoming Communist nation... How wonderful for the minds of those little children and those mothers willingly gave up their children to be indoctrinated by the state .

Media Shielded Voters from Obama’s Israel Intentions
Jack Cashill
When President Barack Obama publicly endorsed the Palestinian view of Israel’s future this week, he took many Americans, including many of his Jewish-American supporters, by surprise. Had the media been doing their job, he would not have surprised anyone.

In April 2008, Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times wrote a lengthy article titled “Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Obama.” The article pulled some of its information from a video shot at a 2003 farewell dinner for Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian booster and a de facto spokesman for the PLO during his Beirut years. Khalidi, who had spent several years at the University of Chicago, was leaving for New York.

Domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn reportedly attended the dinner as well. This would make sense. Khalidi begins the acknowledgment section of his 2004 book, Resurrecting Empire, with a tribute to the guy who lived — and edited — in their neighborhood. “First, chronologically and in other ways,” writes Khalidi, “comes Bill Ayers.” Unlike the calculating Obama, Khalidi had no reason to be coy about this relationship.

At the dinner, Obama thanked Khalidi and his wife for the many meals they had shared chez Khalidi and for reminding Obama of “my own blind spots and my own biases.” Obama hoped that “we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table [...] [but around] this entire world.”

Wallsten acknowledged that during this “celebration of Palestinian culture,” some of the guests made hostile comments about Israel. One recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism with the implicit threat that Israel “will never see a day of peace.” Another compared “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden. If worse had been said, or if Obama had applauded these comments, the world beyond the LA Times newsroom would not be allowed to know.

The Times, which endorsed Obama for president, steadfastly refused to share the videotape despite the demand by the McCain camp and others to release it. This was, of course, one of many clues to Obama’s character that the media either suppressed or refused to seek.

“A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb.

Times spokeswoman Nancy Sullivan blew Goldfarb off. “As far as we’re concerned, the story speaks for itself,” she responded. The Times would add no details beyond what had appeared in Wallsten’s April article. Obama, after all, had many affluent Jewish supporters in the Los Angeles area. Why worry them with a little anti-Israel rabble-rousing?
