Obama, the first communist president?
http://english.ruvr.ru/2012_06_29/79722810/ ^

Posted on 08/06/2012 4:48:54 AM PDT by kronos77

The topmost recent news is the Thursday ruling of U.S. Supreme Court that in a 5-4 vote upheld Barack Obama's controversial healthcare law.

The ruling was, to a certain extent, unexpected, because the court is almost evenly divided along the conservative–liberal lines, and the vote that determined the decision in favor of the administration was that of the conservative Chief Justice John Roberts.

Hours before the ruling it was not clear whether the Court would uphold or repeal the law in its entirety, or uphold it only partly. The Wall Street Journal, citing its sources in Obama's inner circle, even stated that President Obama had prepared three speeches in anticipation of the ruling. Luckily for him, he had to stick to the most preferred one.

The ruling has been widely recognized as a triumph for President Obama who had put much of the labors of his presidency to this singular law. But it still keeps open the question of what impact the ruling will have on November 6 elections.

It is probably impossible to go into all the details of the law in a short commentary but the core of it suggests providing medical insurance to 30 million people who presently remain uncovered by any insurance plan. Shortly speaking, it means providing medical care to all Americans – whether they can afford it or not. This, in turn, poses a question of whether those who can afford medical care should pay for those who cannot (and a considerable number among the latter prefer to live on social benefits not because they are unable to earn a decent living, but because they are unwilling to). This reminds of is the motto formulated in the Communist Manifesto and attempted to be implemented in the Soviet Union – "take and divide".

Why is it that Pravda is providing more accurate news than our own news media? The world has truly turned upside down.

Yes we have suffered our first communist president.

“We” brought it upon ourselves.

In truth it is actually the triumph of the lone communist theorist in Mousillini’s jail.. Antonio Grammmsci.

No surprise here! I knew he was a communist in 2007, all I had to do was listen to one of his speeches. It’s not rocket science.

I would argue that Roosevelt was our first Communist president and that most of the Democrats that have come after him are just increasingly more extreme versions of the same.

0bama is not the first communist president.

Jimmy Carter is a communist.

So is Bill Clinton.

When asked if he was a communist, Clinton replied that he was a “communitarian”. He always had a way with words.

When Clinton went to Italy, one Italian communist rag proclaimed, “Benvenuto Comrade Bill!”

So, 0bama is not our first communist president.

“Western thinking has become conservative:
the world situation should stay as it is at any cost;
there should be no changes. ....
The communist regime in the East could stand and grow due to the enthusiastic support
from an enormous number of Western intellectuals who felt a kinship and refused to see
communism's crimes. And when they no longer could do so, they tried to justify them. In
our Eastern countries, communism has suffered a complete ideological defeat; it is zero
and less than zero. But Western intellectuals still look at it with interest and with
empathy, and this is precisely what makes it so immensely difficult for the West to
withstand the East.”

[Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn at the Commencement, 8 June 1978, Harvard University]

What is going on in our country? Our president is a biological/ideological issue of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals. Who is Abeble to explain?

If we could first know where we are and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth [decade] since a policy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of [tolerating Marxist-Alinsky] agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased but has constantly augmented [to where it is arguably "the Establishment"]. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half [Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (psycho spoiled brats actually)] and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of [statism] will arrest the further spread of it and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become [accepted] in all the states, [Red and Blue], North as well as South.

Perhaps he’s the first actual communist, but we’ve had other tyrants of one stripe or another, namely Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, and Johnson.

The first commie was Theodore Rooseveldt.

The second was Woodrow Wilson.

The third was FDR.

The fourth was LBJ.

The fifth was Nixon. He did more to enable the commies LBJ let in than any other President by laying the foundation of alphabet agencies to infringe on personal freedom and limit/regulate economic success. Think of the DEA, BATFE, EPA, and “opening the door to China”.

The sixth was Clinton.

Neither Bush was a commie, but both were useful idiots for the NWO. Look at the facts.

Barackwards is a commie AND a useful idiot.

And the likes of Mitt, Boehner and McConnell will reverse this?

Lol

Obama, the first communist president?

Is the Pope Catholic?

Do bears poop in the woods?

All in the (Political) Family - Obama's Marxist Mentor and Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod ............"As readers of this site are aware, I've just published a book on Barack Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. No president in the long history of this republic has had a mentor like Obama's. Frank Marshall Davis was a literal -- and I mean literal -- card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. I publish Davis's Communist Party number (47544) on the cover of the book, and fill an appendix with declassified FBI documents and Soviet archival material. Those documents reveal a Davis so suspicious that he was placed on the federal government's Security Index, which meant he could be immediately arrested if war broke out between the United States and USSR. With that sort of pro-Soviet influence throughout his adolescence (1970-79), Barack Obama would have trouble getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone sit in the Oval Office."...

Is there even one plank of the Communist Manifesto that Ubama disagrees with?

The Ten Planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto
(and How Statists Implement Them)

  1. Abolition of private property rights (via high property taxes, restrictive zoning laws, "fair housing" edicts, environmental and "wetlands" regulations, and UN Agenda 21)

  2. Institution of a heavily graduated income tax (by calling it "taxing the rich")

  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance (through a confiscatory estate tax on "the rich")

  4. Confiscation of the property of enemies of the state (through lawless application of asset forfeiture and eminent domain)

  5. Centralization of credit into the hands of the state (Federal Reserve, Federal Trade Commission, TARP, etc.)

  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation into the hands of the state (FCC, DOT, FEMA, etc.).

  7. Consolidation and subjugation of all major industries to central government control (EPA, OSHA, ICC, NLRB, EEOC, etc.)

  8. Mandatory labor union membership (public-sector unions, automatic withholding of forced union dues, "card check," etc.)

  9. Equitable redistribution of all wealth (TANF, SSI, EITC, SNAP, etc.)

  10. Free public education (and food and health care and cell phones and Internet access, etc.)

“the core of it suggests providing medical insurance to 30 million people who presently remain uncovered by any insurance plan”

Rush Limbaugh is one of those 30 million (if that number is correct). I wonder how many other millionaires they’re counting - not to mention, how many illegals are they counting in their stats?

I equate obamacare with the act of killing an ant with a hammer - extreme overkill.

Why is it that Pravda is providing more accurate news than our own news media?

Not more accurate. Only accurate about events in the US. Now.... the stuff that happens in Russia is given the same twist that stuff in the US is by the USMSM. That's because both the Russian and American Media is in a mutual parasitic role with it's political leaders. Both think that they 'own' or 'control' the other. Most of the political muck we witness is just the MSM and the Politicians trying to prove their influence and domination.

It is likely that Russians reading a 'US' news source about an event in/around Russia might have the same 'viewpoint' as you or I.

Both Russian and US media lie. It's only a question of 'to who' they lie.

As you say, the world has truly turned upside down. Not only that but I think the Rapture occurred, and only about 3000 people , worldwide, vanished. So few, in fact, that no one has even noticed.

I think FDR was nothing more than a political opportunist. Yes, he was a liberal-socialist but then so was his uncle, TR.

As the Depression started to really bite FDR had to prepare for a challenge from his left from Louisiana Gov. Huey Long. Huey Long was a freaking Marxist.
