Obama's Utopian Statism Is Both Below and On the Radar ^ | July 25, 2014 | David Limbaugh

Posted on 07/25/2014 10:20:28 AM PDT by Kaslin

It's no wonder President Obama tries to lock his normally fawning liberal media out of his fundraisers. He says things he doesn't want even them to hear -- or report. Sometimes they complain, but their disgraceful loyalty never wanes.

On the West Coast earlier this week to meet donors from two top Democratic super PACs, he specifically excluded the press. According to Politico, "the reporters and photographers traveling with the president on Air Force One and in his motorcade were left on the gravel path not even within sight of former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal's house in the Seattle suburbs where Obama sat for a Senate Majority PAC fundraiser with a $25,000 entrance fee."

The same thing happened the next morning, when he didn't even tell his media cheerleaders what floor of the downtown San Francisco Four Seasons hotel he was on while panhandling with major donors for the House Majority PAC.

Christi Parsons, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, emitted a toothless protest, saying: "We think these fundraisers ought to be open to at least some scrutiny, because the president's participation in them is fundamentally public in nature. Denying access to him in that setting undermines the public's ability to independently monitor and see what its government is doing." You think?

Then why do you all continue to cover for this man and his policies? Why do you never hold him accountable for his ongoing whopper that he is running the "most transparent administration in history"?

The reason is that you are his ideological soul mates, and that trumps all else, including your sacred, selectively enforced motto, "The public has a right to know."

Media dishonor aside, Obama, as I said, does have strong reasons for wanting to fly under the radar when fundraising. As tone-deaf, insensitive and self-absorbed as he is, he is surely at least marginally aware that many Americans find his endless taxpayer-subsidized, partisan fundraising offensive when it proceeds apace amid multitudinous world crises and domestic scandals.

There's also the matter of his partisan tone, which he doubtlessly ratchets up to new levels of stridency when among fellow travelers in the top 1 percent as they join in condemning wealthy capitalists while exempting themselves -- because they care, as evidenced by their liberalism.

Before he booted the press, he got warmed up. He said, "The reason politics does not work in Washington ... is because we have one party that has no agenda other than making government not work -- whose primary function, primary purpose right now, if you distill their ideology, comes down to saying 'no' to any efforts to help ordinary families get ahead."

This from the man whose policies have quagmired jobs and the economy for nearly six years, whose spending is bankrupting us and whose dependency-generating agenda is destroying the middle class. Imagine what he said when the press wasn't in the room.

But that's not all. When Obama is with his progressive buds, he also lets his socialistic hair down. He made some candid statements that reveal his utopian mindset -- the leftist fantasy world he continues to inhabit despite years of hard reality's smacking his policies in the face with failure after failure.

It was reported that he said at his Seattle fundraiser, "Part of people's concern is just the sense that around the world, the old order isn't holding and we're not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order that's based on a different set of principles, that's based on a sense of common humanity, that's based on economies that work for all people."

Why are some people so slow in coming around to Obama's real beliefs and true intentions? You don't need to be a cryptologist to understand what Obama was saying here.

Most of us, especially Christians, agree that there is a common humanity. We are all made in God's image and entitled to equal dignity. But considering his other statements over the years and his record, we know he means something different -- that no nation, including America, is exceptional. Nor is there anything particularly imperative about safeguarding our national sovereignty, which explains his virtually open-borders mentality.

How about "a different set of principles" and "economies that work for all people"? Just what did he mean by that? Well, socialism doesn't work for any people save the ruling class, much less all people, but he doesn't grasp that. He seems to regard it as a gross injustice that there are wide disparities of income and wealth not only within the United States but also between Americans and peoples of other nations.

He believes that the United States should share its wealth, vastly more than it already has and does, with other peoples of the world, patently oblivious to the facts that we will have little wealth if we continue with his socialistic policies and that other nations would be far wealthier if they would turn to free market principles themselves.

You can slice it any way you want to, but Obama makes clear over and over again that he rejects fundamental American principles and wants to employ "a different set of principles" as he remakes this nation according to his quixotic vision.

In one sense, it's quite inaccurate to characterize Obama's policies as failures, because he is doing precisely what he intends to do. He is not failing; we are. America is. And though this will be news to the persistently naive among us, he is just getting warmed up, emboldened and defiant rather than discouraged and chastened by his growing unpopularity.

Though he does many things under the radar, he performs so much mischief in public that no one has any excuse to be ignorant.

I just think “O” doesn’t like being monitored when he speaks without a teleprompter.

He knows that he comes across like the half-wit that he IS and doesn’t want it to be directly apparent.

After all, there is no wiggle-room for denial and lies about your statements when everything you say is rolling on unedited video!! :)

He wants one global communist system - he's a Marxist.

Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on Alinsky writings even before “Rules for Radicals” was published and Obama writes about him in his books. In fact, Obama mastered Alinsky’s praxis and became a recruiter and trainer for new converts teaching the cadre leaders for Acorn and other radical organizations following Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.......

Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
Education: University of Chicago
Spouse: Irene Alinsky
Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S. ?

All eight rules are currently in play

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States ?

Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “Useful Idiots.”

The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.

“It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

LOL if failure is his game he wins.
