Change is Coming
NA | NA | Pat Dollard

Posted on 02/22/2009 5:44:22 PM PST by dvan

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis.

Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus. Something of historic proportions is happening.

I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two. We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why? We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms.

That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders.

Apparently not. We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why? We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate.

Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why? We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman.

Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is medicare and our entire government, our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten.

And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders?

No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why? I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now. This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure.

Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again. And that is only the beginning. And I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing.

What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory.

Conservative "losers" read it right now. And promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression].

Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think.

How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . change.

And the people surely got what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of.

When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. Don't forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years - a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency - it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.

All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them. As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.

Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe - and why I believe it. I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. ********************************************************************************************************************* The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

The good news, and I hope what separates us from so many failures of the past, is that there are still many of us around who are intelligent and who know our history, and can speak of why we believe what we believe. America is still filled with many large organizations (think the Heritage Foundation, the NRA, and many others) who believe in and will fight for the preservation of our freedoms. And we have something no one has ever had before, the internet, that ensures that anyone who really wants to be at least CAN still be educated. We may be a minority, but our voices cannot be silenced and even if our nation falls into deeper trouble, we will still be there, offering an alternative path.

To do anything about this you would have to go against a propaganda machine that will successfully characterize you as racist, sexist, mean spirited and insane and it might be necessary to shoot the bastards before they eventually do that to you.

Saul Alinsky on "Change"...
From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution."

Saul Alinsky, The Latter Rain

A Landslide Mandate For Change

Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

I just found the author of this “posting”...

The author is — tps — whomever that is. It’s an unidentified poster, in a “comments sections” of another article that was posted.

I mean, if you’re gonna posted *anonymous* posters — who “comment” on blog entries — you might as well post Donald Duck... LOL..

The *very least* one could do — is to *document* who posted it where it came from and so on...

The webpage for a *different blog article* is — http://patdollard.com/2008/11/discovered-2006-audio-obama’s-chief-of-staff-describes-mandatory-civil-service-plan/

The *anonymous poster* is tps and he comments further on down the page in the comments section. The date and time of the “comment entry” is — November 12th, 2008 at 11:45 pm.

“Slowly, as the pieces fit together, we shared a horrifying epiphany: the banks, corporations and investors acting in each global region were the exact same players. They were a relatively small group that reappeared again and again in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Asia accompanied by the same well-known accounting firms and law firms.

Clearly, there was a global financial coup d’etat underway.

The magnitude of what was happening was overwhelming. In the 1990’s, millions of people in Russia had woken up to find their bank accounts and pension funds simply gone – eradicated by a falling currency or stolen by mobsters who laundered money back into big New York Fed member banks for reinvestment to fuel the debt bubble.

Reports of politicians, government officials, academics, and intelligence agencies facilitating the racketeering and theft were compelling. One lawyer in Russia, living without electricity and growing food to prevent starvation, was quoted as saying, “We are being de-modernized.”

Before you fret too much, it’s important to consider a few things.

When I look at Obambi, I see a poor, ambitious schmuck who has been given the Captain’s hat and told he is in charge, for the last 15 minutes of the voyage of the Titanic. There is nowhere for him to go but down.

No doubt he is filled to the brim with all sorts of ambitious plans and schemes. But it doesn’t matter.

As he was leaving office, to be replaced by his Vice President Martin Van Buren, Andrew Jackson neatly popped an economic bubble, that caused the worst economic collapse in US history to that point, and almost matched the Great Depression. Gee, thanks boss.

But Obama now finds himself in Martin Van Buren’s shoes. But don’t blame everything on W. Bush, in this case. Bush saw the catastrophe coming from a mile away, and tried to mitigate it, but the Democrat congress wouldn’t play.

So perhaps it was a good thing that the Republicans got creamed in the election. Even if some talented Republican could Jerry-rig the economy to plod on for another year or two, it was obvious that this monster needs a major readjustment.

And Obama is as helpless to save the old economy as he would have been in saving the Titanic, 15 minutes before plonk.

If you are the author of this, please, please tell us there are more who know and believe as you do now working in our educational system. That is our only hope. We need educators to offset what the plans of people like Obama are planning to do to our children's minds and our country.

I, too, have sensed this for years...ever since my children started college (in the 80's)and I listened as their ideas changed from mostly conservative to liberal because of the indoctrination they had from their professors. Luckily I won one of them back.

But there are thousands out there in what used to be America, who have no idea as you stated, of what America was once or why, and who have accepted the ideals of socialism/communism/Marxism and that "everyone should work for the common good, then everyone will be happy and equal, and government controls it all," beliefs that derranged professors crammed down their throats.

How did these educators get so numerous and go so unchecked for so long? No wonder so many politicians harbor the same thoughts...they have gone to school with, befriended, socialized with and been mentored by the liberal education loons. It is frightening. As it is said: "Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it."

I just hope there are enough educators like you who can address this in our classrooms before it is too late

The election of Obama means something.

It was symbolism he used to get elected. And the symbolism expressed from words to posters, the lack of showing face on military installations or with the troops, the types of shows he went on and the sort of people he associated with or support him today, are all things that should make us be fearful.

Now I have a better understanding of why Barack Hussien Obama sent that bust of Winston Churchill back. He can't stand anyone or anything that knows the truth of what he is.

While there are some similarities, Hitler had a war-weary, and un-armed populace to shape and/or beat into submission. Today there is a very large, well-educated, well-armed, and highly motivated/patriotic segment of the American populace who will not let Obama achieve anything near what Hitler did, and may nip such ambitions, if they exist, in the bud.

Additionally, while there may be equally zealous citizens championing Obama's "Change," and a few misguided law "enforcement" elements that may unwittingly try to enforce such change, unlike 1930s Germany, the combat-hardened American military will side with We The People, not self-serving politicians in Washington.

Yes...something is about to happen. We have allowed the brain dead schmucks to bring the country to crisis. It's simply the culmination of years of psychological subversion by the an old enemy...who now seems to be more capitalist than we are. That's the irony of the entire situation...the original plan put in place by Moscow over 100 years ago has a life of it's own here and no one is stopping it's movement.

I agree with the author. It seems to me that much of what we have been experiencing is orchestrated—but I am not sure by whom or for what pupose. Much of is goes against American and a lot of the change took place under nominally conservative Presidents (including Reagan). I believe these changes will accelerate now that the Dems have almost total control of the Government.

“But there are thousands out there in what used to be America, who have no idea as you stated, of what America was once or why, and who have accepted the ideals of socialism/communism/Marxism and that “everyone should work for the common good, then everyone will be happy and equal, and government controls it all,” beliefs that derranged professors crammed down their throats.”

I have 3 sons...30, 28, and 24. Two are college educated (one with no degree, one working on his graduate) and one is not. Sadly, they all believe this way.
