  • Why do we allow the enemy to infiltrate into our country?

    This question is directed to Obama and his admin, all dhimmicrats, GOPe RINOs like Rubio, McCain, McGrahamnesty, Kascich, Bush, and the usual cheap labor lobby traitors: You say you want to keep us safe and that we have to sacrifice our rights for security, and that you can't tell which Muslims are radical vs which will remain peaceful (until they too are radicalized), but why then do we allow the bloodthirsty enemy to infiltrate into our country? Would not the prudent thing be to place a moratorium on importing people from Muslim countries and immediately cease allowing refugees in? It's...

    Patriot News Daily ^ | 22 June 2015
    All across the political blogosphere, you can read endless inquiries into the oncoming demise of the Republican Party. As far as the intellectual elite are concerned, the GOP will be doomed by polarization. The top representatives have supposedly moved so far to the right that they will soon be a non-factor in national elections. The scary thing about this analysis is that it may well be correct. In a way. Because conservatives do have a problem, and it is that the country is moving slowly but surely to the left. And Democrats are way out ahead of the curve, dragging...

    The first thing to notice is how rapidly Elon Musk's SpaceX is altering the market for government-sponsored rocket launches. Witness how frequently the words "to compete with SpaceX" appear in industry statements and press coverage. To compete with SpaceX, say multiple reports, the United Launch Alliance, the Pentagon's traditional supplier, is developing a new Vulcan rocket powered by a reusable engine designed by Jeff Bezos's Blue Origin. Because of SpaceX, says Aviation Week magazine, Japan's government has instructed Mitsubishi to cut in half the cost of the Japanese workhorse rocket, and China is planning a new family of kerosene-fueled Long...

    The anti-Benjamin Netanyahu V15 political action group declared Wednesday it is “here to stay” and will continue the “long march” toward victory and change. V15 has drawn international attention for partnering with One Voice, a U.S.-U.K. nonprofit that has received funding from the State Department. OneVoice’s offices in Tel Aviv were being used as the campaign headquarters for V15′s anti-Netanyahu effort, as WND was first to report. It was OneVoice that hired 270 Strategies, a consulting firm whose senior leadership is comprised mostly of former top staffers for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

  • Gramsci's Dream Came True: We Have a Leftist Ruling Class

    The American Thinker ^ | Oct. 25, 2014 | Paul Austin Murphy
    Antonio Gramsci is a figure of high importance to the development of the left, both in Britain and the United states. While looking into Gramsci, I came across James Joll's book, a clear exposition of Gramsci’s ideas by a fan of the Italian Marxist. Thus it can be said that the text is a fair account of Gramsci's ideas. And if there is any bias in the texts I've chosen, it's bias in favor -- rather than against – Antonio Gramsci.

    infed.org ^ | 2005 | Barry Burke
    The traditional Marxist theory of power was a very one-sided one based on the role of force and coercion as the basis of ruling class domination. This was reinforced by Lenin whose influence was at its height after the success of the Russian Revolution in 1917. Gramsci felt that what was missing was an understanding of the subtle but pervasive forms of ideological control and manipulation that served to perpetuate all repressive structures. He identified two quite distinct forms of political control: domination, which referred to direct physical coercion by police and armed forces and hegemony which referred to both...

Sometimes the more independent and secure who have thrived under capitalism promote it, the more dependent who have not - detest it.At other times the realist mind is opposed to the idealist.  And we can also envision the split as an age-old dichotomy between the...

    S. Steven Powell wrote in his 1987 book, Covert Cadre, that the revolutionary activity advocated by Marxist Antonio Gramsci involved the need to “infiltrate autonomous institutions—schools, media, churches, public-interest groups—so as radically to transform the culture, which determines the environment in which political and economic policies are played out.” Or, as Carl Boggs, author of Gramsci’s Marxism wrote, “the role of revolutionary theory is to create the foundation of a new socialist order precisely through the negation and transcendence of bourgeois society.” This “transcendence of bourgeois society,” Boggs explains, was the basis for Gramsci’s first priority—“the multi-dimensional transformation of civil...

After looking at video footage of the rocket launch released by AP on Tuesday, Chae Yeon-seok, a former president of the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, said, the external appearance of the rocket shows that the North must have used technology of the Chinese rocket to make it. The assembly method also seems to be Chinese. "The North set the first-stage booster rocket up vertically first, and then put the second and...

    Democrat Socialist Jujitsu on American CapitalismBy Rene Guerra The Democrats and the rest of the Left have craftily turned around the blame for something disastrous they caused, via insidiously cunning ways. They, of course, couldn’t have done anything of that without the help of the complicit "mainstream" media, who don't expose the true genesis of the monster that the current financial crisis is. Every American should know the truth. The whole thing started when the Democrats corrupted the original intention of the 1999 Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act that Bill Clinton signed rescinding the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act. The latter kept routine-business banks separate from big investment-banks. Specifically,...

    In a move that will affect China's commercial space business and could hamper U.S./Chinese space cooperation, the U.S. Treasury Dept. has frozen the financial assets of the China Great Wall Industry Corp. and another Chinese space exporter for allegedly aiding Iranian missile development. In addition to the Treasury Dept., the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been gathering evidence against the company, federal officials said. The Iranian missile programs involved are also tied directly to development of the third-stage solid rocket motor for the North Korean Taepo-Dong-2C/3 ballistic missile, according to an analysis by GlobalSecurity.org.

    Americans have never really understood ideological warfare. Our gut-level assumption is that everybody in the world really wants the same comfortable material success we have. We use “extremist” as a negative epithetic. Even the few fanatics and revolutionary idealists we have, whatever their political flavor, expect everybody else to behave like a bourgeois. We don’t expect ideas to matter — or, when they do, we expect them to matter only because people have been flipped into a vulnerable mode by repression or poverty. Thus all our divagation about the “root causes” of Islamic terrorism, as if the terrorists’ very clear...

Admittedly, this point seems to fizzle when applied to our particular historical moment. On the surface of American politics, as many have had cause to mention, it appears that the main trends predicted over a decade ago in Francis Fukuyama’s "The End of History?" have come to pass — that ideological (if not partisan) strife has been muted; that there is...

    If you want a good example of the "long march through the institutions" undertaken by sixties leftists after they left school, look no further than the career of Orville Schell, dean of Berkeley's School of Journalism. Since the political program of the left was unlikely to prevail through democratic means — given the innate good sense of most Americans, who can smell a totalitarian rat a mile away — those like Schell endorsing various socialist nostrums could realize their utopian schemes only "by insinuation and infiltration rather than confrontation," as Roger Kimball has put it.

    Tactics introduced by Italian communist Antonio Gramsci in the 1930's have contributed greatly to the decline of the west. High taxes, government regulations, the toleration of illegal aliens and possible terrorists, the erosion of national defense, gun grabbing, political correctness, the dumbing down and drugging of children and the deliberate corruption of their morals, the anti human element pervading in the environmental movement, the norming of abortion, euthanasia, divorce, homosexuality, and other issues, are manifestations of the Gramsci factor. Gramci called for a gradual transfer of legislative power from elected bodies to appointed bureaucracies where un-natural and authoritarian international socialism...

Mostly comprised of old National Council of Churches (NCC) types, the Clergy Leadership Network (CLN) will focus on opposing U.S. military action and fighting for a larger federal welfare state, while criticizing religious conservatives. Several of CLN's leaders were also formerly leaders in the Interfaith Alliance, another liberal religious group founded ten years ago with the nearly identical purpose of counteracting the "Religious Right."

    In the early 1960's numerous disputes erupted around the country over purported Communist infiltration of our clergy and religious institutions. One of the first triggers for what would become a major controversy was the February 1960 release of the “Air Reserve Training Manual” which was issued by the Continental Air Command at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Approximately 3300 copies were distributed. The Manual contained a section entitled “Communism in Religion” written by Homer H. Hyde.

    According to recent newspaper accounts, anti-American sentiment is on the rise worldwide, even within the United States. While some of this sentiment is related to the war in Iraq and allegations of U.S. imperial ambition, this feeling has deep philosophical and empirical roots. It is clear, or at least should be clear, that utopians apply a standard to American behavior that is neither realistic nor consistent with national achievements. Rather than apply a standard of "seeing is believing," the utopians rely on "believing is seeing," creating a Potemkin Village of the mind, a vast area of artificial conditions that invariably...

Instead, place Froggie in a pot with tepid water and, ever so slowly, continue to increase the heat. When the poor fellow finally realizes he is being cooked, he’ll have no more strength to resist.

    PSYCHOPOLITICS - the art and science of asserting and maintain- ing dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses, and the ef- fecting of the conquest of enemy nations through "mental healing."

    There is no doubt that the Jayson Blair outrage has created a crisis at the New York Times. And since the scandal caps a long series of complaints about the paper's leftward bias, the Blair affair's power to hurt the Times has become more than the sum of its parts. Yet those who believe that the New York Times is on the ropes are fooling themselves. Beneath the well-publicized controversies over the Times' ideological bias lie a couple of lesser known and intertwined stories: the tale of Times owner, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., and of the business strategy that he and...

    Gay priests don't harm the C of E half as much as its Pharisees By Andrew Brown (Filed: 15/06/2003) Like most Anglican stories, the row over Dr Jeffrey John, the suffragan bishop-elect of Reading, who turns out to be 'gay,' looks like a straightforward conflict between conservative bigots and liberal hypocrites. But a little historical perspective shows that the bigotry and hypocrisy are much more evenly distributed than first appears. The Church of England has been fighting over gay priests for at least 15 years, and in that time each side has had plenty of time to acquire the weapons...

    I need a little help in understanding what has been happening in this country. How can America be expected to be the shining example of capitalism and democracy when we can do nothing but fight with each other? It seems to me the current state of affairs in this country is going to be the downfall of us all. When did the times change in this country? It used to be people (regardless of political affiliation) in this country would do whatever was appropriate for the good of the country. Some recent examples of people doing whatever they can to...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a step critics charge could result in decriminalizing sexual contact between adults and children, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently sponsored a symposium in which participants discussed the removal of pedophilia from an upcoming edition of the psychiatric manual of mental disorders. Psychiatrists attending an annual APA convention May 19 in San Francisco proposed removing several long-recognized categories of mental illness - including pedophilia, exhibitionism, fetishism, transvestism, voyeurism and sadomasochism - from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Most of the mental illnesses being considered for removal are known as "paraphilias." Psychiatrist Charles Moser...

    (CNSNews.com) - "I'm not interested in being anyone's poster child," said the first openly homosexual clergyman elected to serve as a bishop in the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Canon V. Gene Robinson, who won Saturday's election to lead the New Hampshire diocese, told NBC News on Tuesday that his vision of the church focuses on "justice for all people and bringing people from the fringes back into the church." In a "Today" show interview, Robinson said every denomination in the church is dealing with the issue of homosexual clergymen. "And I think that's because God is doing a new thing....

    As Saddam fell, so did the media big-wigs who used to believe that they shaped American public opinion. SOME TIME in the morning of April 9, 2003, as the statue of Saddam Hussein was being hauled down in Baghdad, another statue--of Walter Cronkite, famed CBS newsman--hacked at with hammers by various bloggers, also came crashing down. Cronkite, once called "the most trusted man in America," was believed by President Lyndon B. Johnson to have turned the American public against the Vietnam War. This time, Cronkite had done his best to turn the American public against the war in Iraq, but...
