A "Bloodless Coup"? (Is Obama imitating Hugo Chavez?)
Right Wing News ^ | May 1, 2009 | Melissa Clouthier

Posted on 05/10/2009 9:01:51 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Watching what President Barack Obama is doing with the country makes me think of Venezuela under Chavez. Is it any wonder they're buddies? They certainly have enough commonalities that many people see the two together in heart, mind, and action:

But times have changed and so have strategies. Saul Alinsky, radical of the '60s, author of "Rules for Radicals" who was all about taking power, suggested that you target your opposition, make it personal and destroy him. Recent decades have seen this play out in the demonization and ruination of a host of people. They weren't killed, but they were in essence destroyed so that no one in the mainstream culture would ever again listen to or heed their advice. Richard Nixon ... Oliver North ... Clarence Thomas ... Dick Cheney ... Tom DeLay ... George W. Bush ... Sarah Palin. Have Americans stopped to think that these destroyed people are all on the political right? Have they noticed that Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank still walk among us, exercising influence, with whatever reputations they have in tact?

Yes, times have changed. Under the careful guidance of Fidel Castro, the driving force behind the Sao Paulo Forum, a new method of gaining power has emerged: 1) Get elected through the system, 2) change the constitution, 3) corrupt the elections 4) nationalize banks and industry and 5) punish your opposition. A leader needs to make just a few bold moves in each category so that all will get the message. According to Alejandro Esclusa, the former Venezuelan presidential candidate who has been tried on several occasions for his opposition to Hugo Chavez, this insidious method of instilling a totalitarian regime is now working in 17 Latin American countries.

"It would seem that the changes that started in Venezuela in the last decade of the 20th century have begun to reach North America," Hugo Chavez said just last week even as he was jailing opposition mayors in at least three cities.

And President Obama has a 90% approval rating with Democrats. The statist impulse is strong on the other side. And they don't mind that the President of ostensibly all the people demonizes those who go to Tea Parties. Hugo Chavez doesn't like opposition either.

First, they came for speech, then they came for banks, then they came for the auto industry, then they came for the internet, now they come for health care. And before it's all over, the state owns you. Every part of your existence is subsumed to the state.

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

Like I’ve said before, millions of Americans who voted for Zero heard “change” and thought, “Yeah, we do need a change from Bush,” and who could blame them after the vicious beatings he took, daily, in the MSM. However, when Zero said, “change”, what HE meant was, “revolution.” I’ll believe that til my dying day.

” 2) change the constitution”

I haven’t studied Venezuela, but I read the news. It seems to me every time I read about Chavez and the constitution it is changing via referrendum. That is more like many states than it is our federal Constitution. (and by the way look at the mess most state constitutions have become because of referrendums).

Here we have these pesky states that have to ammend it. There are a lot of factors at play that make it harder to get them to go along. The most obvious problem is right leaning states won’t give in to a communist. The second problem is that those in power in states will not give it up freely. They will require payback, but only so many of them can be governors. Too many people want to retain their power.

The chilling thing is what the feds are trying to pull with the states and the “stimulus” money. California is being threatened. I’m sure that is act 1. Maybe they will threaten all fed funding if a state doesn’t vote to ammend, but I just can’t see it happening smoothly. There is a higher probability of some states threatening to secede if they get pushed and shoved.

U.S. Investigates Voting Machines’ Venezuela Ties - New York Times

By TIM GOLDEN
Published: October 29, 2006

The federal government is investigating the takeover last year of a leading American manufacturer of electronic voting systems by a small software company that has been linked to the leftist Venezuelan government of President Hugo Chávez.

My TV boycott started in 2000. I allowed 1 hour of broadcast TV weekly...ER...only if it was a new episode. The series is over. My TV is simply a display for DVD/Bluray or the Wii my wife put in the livingroom. The DishNET HD was canceled a few months ago. Most of these changes have been cost driven as I've had no paying contracts since Nov 2008. The XM and Sirius radios are next on the chopping block. The last item will be the cell phones.

I’ve honestly thought about this from Day 1 — well, actually the day after the election... That he would have his own form of Communi-Fascist Personality Led Dictatorship. So far everything is going right along those lines.

His takeover of financial institutions, and then the automotive industry, bailouts of other industries (newspapers) etc... etc... He’s doing it piecemeal, but he’s progressively taking more and more power everyday... And he’s got Congress and the Senate to help him by passing more and more laws that limit our freedom... Putting family, hobby and organic farmers “out of business”, messing with our food (outlawing heirloom seeds), Fining citizens for selling outgrown children’s clothing & books (see the new Yard Sale Laws...), taking control over the internet... Well, I could go on and on, but I’m preaching to the choir here...

Oh I forgot one more thing... What really gave me chills and kind of really ramped up my “threat detector” was when that Democrat woman (Boxer?) announced Obama on Inauguration Day, and she said, “What we are witnessing is a peaceful transition of power”. But the way in which she said it, gave me an ominous feeling...

Like they (the far-left Dems) had always thought they would have to have a violent revolution to take control and destroy our Constitution — now there are those (like Snowe) on the right HELPING them dismantle our country piece by piece...

Just looking at the face of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn on Election night should’ve removed any doubt that if THEY were pleased, we were in a LOT of trouble as a nation... As if people don’t notice the smug, condescending, narcissistic face of their new Pres_ent?

God forgive me, but I have a hard time forgiving all the ignorant people who voted this guy into office...

Well, at least Obama hasn’t shot any college students yet for protesting the government taking over ALL the media - like in Venezuela.

And, at least we can still find meat (for now) on our grocery store shelves. Obama hasn’t yet made himself President for life (although I’ll be the ACORN money will help with that — now to just get the term limits changed...).

Anyway, it doesn’t matter the WAY they do it — it only matters the outcome, really. Obama is a combination of a Fascist, and a Communist dictator. He joked his doctrine was “Obama-ism”, and I don’t doubt it for a second... He is a collectivist, and there’s only one way this can go... From bad to worse, unless the people wake up. Unfortunately I think there are too many people in our world who need to learn the “hard way”...

This is a actually a classic technique called the “autogolpe,” which means self-coup. The dictator gets elected, and then either suddenly or gradually assumes all the other powers of the state. Chavez - like Evo Morales and other Communists in Latin America - has done it by replacing members of the judiciary, seizing private industry after demonizing it to stir up the mob, manipulating elections and controlling the military. Sometimes an autogolpe can also be done with an artificially staged crisis, which makes it much faster and less incremental.

The one group in the US Obama doesn’t completely control yet is the military, and it’s essential for a dictator to control the military. I think he’ll end up controlling it, through a tactic of removing funding on the one hand, and forcing appointments and favoring certain groups on the other. But in the course of 4 short months, he’s already achieved or at least laid the groundwork for the rest of the phases of the autogolpe. Bambi’s handlers have watched Chavez very carefully and learned the playbook well.

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 (Latter-Rain.com is a "Liberation Theology" commie-left website -etl)
http://latter-rain.com/ltrain/alinski.htm
_____________________________________________________

"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.

The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."

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.

That’s what I’m assuming at this point as well. I wonder how long it will be till they get that up and going? I have a feeling this is what all those “Conspiracy(?) FEMA” camps, oops - CAMPUSES - are for. As they say the young adults will be HOUSED during their service. They will be at the behest of the Federal Government to respond to any Natural or OTHER disasters as deemed by the government, and work to create infrastructure as needed in various communities.

These are going to be like “work-camps” (at least for those less likely to go “along” with the program completely), and the others will most likely be put into action during hurricanes or something, and of cours we have that “OTHER DISASTERS” comment in there...

And that’s where I personally think the comment Obama made that the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) will be as “well-funded, well-trained, and as well-equipped as our military”. They will be issued uniforms, and God knows what “equipment” they will be issued, or what exact training will consist of.

Obama also has planned a four-year institution for “selected students” with the focus being on political and community service leadership roles... (Molding his little fascist followers).

Then connect in what that ACORN/Obama supporter said about going door-to-door about Obama’s budget; “Oh we aren’t looking for a fight. That’ll come after we have an army”.

I think one thing that may be on “our side”. It seems Obama is moving at a very quick pace, and if everyone knew all the different laws they are handing down (besides taking taxpayer money and nationalizing economic institutions and the automkaers — next will be the newspapers and press. Well maybe if he keeps it up - doing things so quickly then perhaps it will motivate more people to stand up and say something..

We still need those Constitution (TEA) Parties to be happening locally as many times as possible.

All JMHO, of course...

A "Bloodless Coup"? (Is Obama imitating Hugo Chavez?)

Sure seems that way.

Bit by bit he is destroying the very fabric of our nation.
