Ickes is still active in the DNC....bigtime.
Now, when will those Schools release “President Obama’s”, or Barry Obama’s files?
Did He ask for, or did the Schools grant him preference as a Foreign Student?
A bit of history.
And it was on 4-20-34, almost exactly 75 years ago.
Imagine how conservatives must have suffered through the Roosevelt years.
What is frightening is that this is an ongoing and never - ending fight against liberals, leftists, and nonproducers.
Keep your flak jacket on, it is the war that will never end!
Yup, some things never change.
The video is a description of the 5 supposed forms of government, from 100% government control (Communism, facism, totalitarianism etc) to 0% government (anarchy) it obliteraties all forms of government as only temporary and futile except for 2, olgiarchy and republic. It does this in a clear concise manner, which effectively shows even a grade schooler about them. It then, in the last few moments, explains Rome, its beginning as a republic, and its morph into a democracy. The parallels are well put, and clearly where this country is today. It is an excellent way to spread the word to those who have never been taught proper history, and that is alot of people since they have been re writing it for so long now.
I have been posting this sucker all over all day, and sometimes I forget that some are stuck at work, so I have included the above basic description of the video, however it does not do the video justice. I beg, implore and urge all to view it who have not. THIS is the reason we are so angry. Taxes are a symptom, losing our republic is the disease!!!!!
THE ROOSEVELT MYTH by John T. Flynn from years ago remains a key source about this era.
As Harry "The Hop" Hopkins said, "Tax, Tax, Spend, Spend, Elect, Elect!"
dim-0-crats know how to exercise political power, and having gotten it back now, they will use it no "ifs, ands, or buts" or even "is is".
Consider the refrain: create five million new jobs, to create or save three million jobs, to now save 0.5 million jobs ... with no comment about those shifts. Perhaps the good people of Ohio, California, ..., etc., missed those changes.
This is what communists want to do, spend the government into bankruptcy and then blame capitalists. Thus, can we conclude the government in the US is currently communist?
And isn’t the CNN anchor also following the same ideal shown in the cartoon when she tries to enforce how the “Land of Lincoln” will get $50 Billion dollars for Illinois? Spend Spend Spend...oh yeah, and protesting against this spending spree “isn’t family viewing”.
Bottom line, this fight is not new. Pick sides folks.
Thanks, I’ve seen that before. It’s well put together.
I know many have, but I am going to keep posting it, and I hope others will send it forth to the non freeping community! Thanks for viewing it!!
Great image. Just goes to show you that as soon as something is created which good and true like the Constitution there are people who show up to attack and malign it.
The Ickes plague riding that wagon is still infecting America.
Don’t say leave Chelsa or the daughters alone....
Some of us knew this from birth.
The “dims” have always been socialists.
And when they win, they become communists/fascists/marxists/nazis.
But some of those who know this, still vote in such a way as to get the traitors in. :-\
Speaking of another time, another place...
The Obama MO is Spend, Spend, Spend, tax into oblivion (we haven't gotten to that last part yet).
The only character in the cartoon I'm completely unfamiliar with is "Richberg." Strange that FDR himself is not depicted.
Fitting that the cartoon was done by the Chicago Tribune, which, under the McCormack family, was well-known to be a leading voice of conservatism up until the 70s when it changed ownership. A major difference between that period and today is that many leading MSM organs (primarily newspapers at the time) were anti-statist then, which is clearly not the case currently.
No irony at all that it was from the Chicago Tribune. Back then, under the ownership of the McCormack family, it was unmistakably a conservative publication. It veered left only after it was sold some time in the 1970s or thereabouts.
Both parties have been corrupt since the get go. Which is one of the reasons I’m not sending money to the RNC any more. I will judge the candidate and send the money directly to their campaign. Not to say that won’t benefit the other, but we need to not let an oligarchy pick our candidates. As long as we still have the vote (which it may be too late for considering ACORN now has an in with our current government)we need to proactively use it to get the right candidates.
Let me think. What was going on in the early 1930’s? ??? Drawing a blank. </ sarc>
Good post, Blogger
Very impressed with the history and civics lesson video. Clearly explains governments.
Knowing that history often does repeat itself and human nature really does not appreciably change, I must research to see how long the Roman Republic lasted.
Fabulous find, Blogger. Almost makes me feel a little better in an odd sort of way.
I don't know this for a fact, but I suppose the New Deal is still tought but grossly overglorified today in the public schools. Heck, Franklin D. Roosevelt is almost always rated among the top five US presidents in any survey of historians.
Holy cow! I confess I missed the irony there when I saw the cartoon.
In all fairness, that was the figure at about the time Roosevelt took office. It didn't get all that much better for the next seven years, though.
Roosevelt called the Constitution a document for the horse and buggy era (or something similar) when he railed against the SCOTUS' declaring a few New Deal laws unconstitutional. But after several elderly conservative judges were encouraged to retire and he appointed their replacements, the SCOTUS pretty much rubber-stamped the constitutionality of every law that was passed and signed.
Thanks justiceseeker93. This would be an appropriate place to link to the topics about how Obama et al have claimed that the New Deal didn’t spend enough. But I want to get to bed soon. :’)
IT WORKED IN RUSSIA!
Recommended Reading: LENIN IN ZURICH, by Sohlzentisyn.
Liberals think history start either the day they wake up or the day they were born.
"Lenin in Zurich" arrived in my mailbox this week, just started reading it.
Wow. Great research.
Bump for the morning.
I don't know who that Ecclesiates feller played for, but I think you're quoting Yogi Berra.
...pretty much the same thing since most of them were born yesterday.
Ecclesiastes 9: “The thing that has been—it is what will be again, and that which has been done is that which will be done again; and there is nothing new under the sun.”
(Amplified Bible; Bible.com)
Notice the use of the word red.
“Notice the use of the word red.”
Oh, I hadn’t caught that. Interesting at how it was used then and now it’s used now.
You have to see this, if you haven’t already.
