  • Open Note To Askel5 from Laz

    Dear Askel5, For many years, I thought you were a bit of a nut. A very INTELLIGENT nut, but a nut nonetheless. Your constant harping about Gramscian politics was, to my mind, weird a little paranoid. It turns out you were one hundred percent right. The move to destroy America has been very below-the-surface, highly organized, and extremely effective ... and the model has been, indeed, Antonio Gramsci's.From the work Notes on Saul Alinsky and Neo-Marxism: Remember that the primary influence for Obama's strategy comes from Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." With that in mind..."Alinsky's tactics were based, not on...
  • What Has Obama Learned? (What A Question)

    The Oval Office isn't the place to learn on the job. That was the line from both Hillary Clinton and John McCain in 2008. In fairness, that's always the argument the more experienced candidate uses against the less experienced candidate (just ask Mitt Romney). But Barack Obama seemed a special case, easily among the least experienced major-party nominees in U.S. history. A Pew poll in August 2008 found that the biggest concern voters had with Obama fell under the category of "personal abilities and experience." In a "change" year, Americans swallowed those concerns and voted for the change candidate. Four...

    A Pennsylvania school district has apologized and made significant changes to a high school marching band’s halftime show that commemorated the Russian Revolution with red flags, military-style outfits and giant hammers and sickles. The New Oxford High School Marching band’s show will no longer be called “St. Petersburg: 1917″ and the performance will no longer include the hammers and sickles, according to a statement from Rebecca Harbaugh, the superintendent for the Conewago Valley School District.

    Last Friday, GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney disclosed his tax returns and health records. In particular, the release of the tax information was a pleasant surprise released without pre-announcement or fanfare. Romney gave information that dates back to 1990 which ought to close Harry Reids mouth for a time .....it would be absolutely wonderful if the right would get such a disclosed-documentary surprise from President Barack Obama. ...What are Americans on the left afraid of learning about Obama? Simple curiosity would demand that Obamas academic records be released let alone really wanting to know about the past of the man...

To the list of recent unsettling developments at DHS and other federal agencies -such as FEMA camp expansions, massive DHS ammo buys, a creepy new biometric surveillance system just being rolled-out by the FBI, and drones buzzing our backyards with cameras- we can now add the appearance across the country of not just heavily-armored military grade Humvees, but 'GLS' armored personnel carriers (APC's) such as in the picture above- 2500 of them to be...

    Shortly after Venezuelan television stations began a live broadcast of a major opposition rally this month, coverage was cut and replaced with images of President Hugo Chvez looking jovial and fatherly as he visited young children at school. It was one of the populist leaders infamous chain broadcasts, in which all regular programming on public access television and radio is suspended so that he can trumpet the achievements of his Bolivarian revolution, often for hours on end. ...Mr Chvez has been in power for more than 13 years and the opposition sees this years poll due to take place...

    Stalin Creates Famine And Havoc By Seizing The Harvest For Redistribution, Seven Million Ukrainians Starved To Death[/caption] Romney committed a major gaffe when he figured 47% of our people are on the dole and will never vote for him. Indeed, I think he has made a major mistake; a mistake that hardly registers in comparison to the ongoing gong show of the Obama administration. However, when we consider the number of working Socialists, Communists, union drones, academics, sycophantic college students, and celebrity voters; we have a demographic far larger than Obama needs for a majority. When we analyze this...

    The never before seen video was just uploaded to YouTube today. "In 1996, Valerie Jarrett addressed the National Association for the Education of Young Children where she said it does take a village to raise a child but asked, what happens when the village is in chaos. Remarks come full circle with attacks on Michael Jordan. Source: South Carolina Educational Television Network," states the description of the video on YouTube. In the speech Jarrett describes an America with some kids growing up in "war-like conditions." She says, "And yet, these kids are expected to compete with my daughter and with...

    The news editor of the official Cuban daily newspaper Granma defected a week ago during a business trip to Mexico and is now living in Miami. Mairelys Cuevas Gmez, 27, traveled to Mexico authorized by the papers executive editor and with the full knowledge of other Cuban officials and the elite in charge of the government media, according to a report published on the website Caf Fuerte. Cuevas defection is a new blow to the regimes news and propaganda operation. In recent months, at least four other members of the Cuban media also decided to ask for asylum in the...

    The recently discovered tape on which Barack Obama said back in 1998 that he believes in redistribution is not really news. He said the same thing to Joe the Plumber four years ago. But the tape's surfacing may serve a useful purpose if it gets people to thinking about the consequences of redistribution. Those who talk glibly about redistribution often act as if people are just inert objects that can be placed here and there, like pieces on a chess board, to carry out some grand design. But if human beings have their own responses to government policies, then we...

    Hot Air ^ | September 20, 2012 | Howard Portnoy
    In the opening of a column in Thursdays Washington Post, liberal commentator E. J. Dionne shares an anecdote. The most incisive reaction to Mitt Romneys disparaging comments about 47 percent of us, he writes, came from a conservative friend who emailed: If I were you, Id wonder why Romney hates America so much. As debating strategies go, this tactic is pretty weak. Dionne is citing as support for his argument one anonymous voice out of a vast chorus of opponents that he claims agrees with him. Actually, Dionne doesnt fully agree with his source. He goes on to suggest that...

    In Laughter and Forgetting, novelist Milan Kudera describes a photo taken of the leaders of the Czech Communist Party on a balcony in Prague. In the original picture, Vladimir Clementis stands next to Prime Minister Klement Gottwald. But after Clementis was purged from the Party, he was airbrushed out of the photo. However, he had given his hat to Gottwald, and in the new photo, widely reproduced, it sits on the PM's head. This is all that remains of Clementis. In a photo on Barack Obama's Facebook page, his mother Ann Dunham stands with her father in what looks like...

    Both presidential nominees are facing more scrutiny for statements they have made in the past as the 2012 election is now less than two months away. Just this week, GOP nominee Mitt Romney faced criticism for his now infamous 47 percent remarks, while President Barack Obama fought to downplay a 1998 video in which he voiced his support for redistribution. And while some Obamas remarks from his past have gotten a lot of media attention, others have seemingly slipped under the radar. One of the videos that apparently went unnoticed is an unearthed clip from 1995, which originally surfaced sometime...

    Santiago Carrillo, the veteran Communist leader who was Spain's last surviving public figure to have taken an active part in the civil war, has died aged 97, family sources have said... In 1936 he joined the army to defend the Republic from a military revolt which turned into a bloody civil war lasting almost three years and ended up installing Franco as dictator. Carrillo, by now a Communist, was named a public order official in a defence committee set up in Madrid in November that year just as rebel troops were approaching the capital and the Republican government had fled...

    The thread theme of COMMUNIST GOALS has been referenced many times on FR. Thanks to Freepers forest - 3/30/2002, and 56newblog - 7/172012 for previously presenting this topic. It is a history lesson which is not taught in U.S. public education. It is worthy of reposting for those coming late to the party. No slight intended, but the under 40 population is least likely to be familiar with this list of goals.

    The stern photo of revolutionary Che Guevara taken by Alberto Korda in 1960 is one of the most reproduced images on the planet, appearing on posters, flags, postcards, T-shirts, and even bikinis. Sadly, the ubiquitous appearances of Che hailed today usually by his first name only demonstrate the near-total failure to educate people about the blood-soaked cruelty he really represented. But there are, thankfully, some limits to the use of Ches famous image if people complain. A recent e-mail sent by the Environmental Protection Agency to mark Hispanic Heritage Month included Kordas image of Che along with...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff's station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Don Walker said. Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

    Environmental Protection Agency staff opened their inboxes Thursday to find an agency-wide Hispanic Heritage Month email featuring a prominent picture of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, and largely plagiarized from the website Buzzle.com. According to the EPA, the email which heralded the beginning Hispanic Heritage Month on Saturday and offered cultural details about Hispanics was an accident and the employee responsible has apologized. The email was drafted and sent by an individual employee, and without official clearance. Shortly after sending the email in question the individual apologized to her colleagues for the inadvertent error, an EPA spokesman emailed TheDC...
