  • Obama and 'History

    Townhall.com ^ | August 22, 2014 | Mona Charen
    Bad actors around the globe keep getting confused about the calendar, and it falls to the Obama administration to set them straight. The Russians, Secretary of State John Kerry protested back in March, have forgotten what century we're living in: "You just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th-century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext." Kerry was echoing President Obama's observation that by seizing Crimea, Russian president Putin was putting himself "on the wrong side of history." It's a theme this president sounded in his first inaugural address, warning that "those who cling to power...

    Brainy Quotes ^ | Various, 19th Century | Frederick Douglas
    I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence. Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them,...
  • Ten quotes: Obama’s journey from ‘yes we can’ to ‘so sue me’

    the hill ^ | 7/4/14 | Peter Sullivan
    President Obama has gone from “yes we can” to “so sue me.” The president’s standoffish remark this week about a Republican lawsuit was a reminder of how much Obama’s rhetoric has changed since his 2008 campaign and its promise to deliver a new kind of politics. These ten Obama quotations illustrate the transformation. 1. July 27, 2004: “There's not a liberal America and a conservative America. There's the United States of America.” Obama vaults onto the national stage with a call for unity at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. 2. Feb. 5, 2008: “We know that what began as...

    Every so often – if we’re listening – we can catch glimpses of what abortion activists really think. Have you ever wondered what Planned Parenthood’s real agenda is? Have you ever considered the real goals behind abortion? Have you ever thought about what abortion really is, according to the people who do it every today? Wonder no longer. Instead, consider – really ponder – these eight scary statements said by abortion activists.

    This is amazing history. Be sure to read the quotes in BOLD at the end. Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

Also could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other. At 19, studied law for 5 years starting under George Wythe. At 23, started his own law practice. At...

    2013 is coming to a close, and unfortunately it appears the debates and controversies will continue into 2014. One thing I'm thankful for is that politicians and personalities love to talk. I present to you some of the more memorable quotations from 2013. As a reminder, memorable does not necessarily mean prolific, inspirational or historical. In fact, some of them might become the annoying song you can't get out of your head. "I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is ... He knows how perceptive he is. He knows...

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth. The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them  between the millstones of taxation and inflation. One man with a gun can control 100 without one. It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed. There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.  The goal of socialism is communism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must...

    The Washington state health exchange site was the toast of the communistic-takeover-of-healthcare town for a while. But now the cancer that is the federal government’s botched roll out of the Affordable Care Act has spread to the Evergreen state. Washington’s Heath Benefits Exchange said today that a miscommunication between it and the federal government caused the online system to quote health care premiums that were lower than what people were actually entitled to. The exchange says 8,000 people were affected. We have a call in to see how far off the calculations were. The customers affected will be receiving letters...

    Margaret Thatcher has left us. Other than Winston Churchill, she was the finest leader to come out of Europe in the last century. She helped Britain recover economically, she stood shoulder to shoulder with Reagan against the Soviet Union and she set a fine example not just for Brits, not just for women, but for everyone to follow. If we had more leaders with Margaret Thatcher's heart, courage and wisdom, this would be a different, better world.

But Mark Levin wonders, rhetorically of course, why Obama doesn’t quote James Madison in the Middle East, or Edmund Burke, or Moses or even Jesus? No, he choose to quotes Saul Alinsky. Mark Levin asks “what the hell is he doing there?” Listen to the full clip:

His headstone and a memorial bench, placed at Trinity Church Cemetery in 2009, evoke his faith and his admiration of a murdered journalist. Koch explained his plans to the Associated Press: The marker will bear the Star of David and a Hebrew prayer, “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” It also will be inscribed with the last words of journalist Daniel Pearl before he was murdered by...

    Sarah Palin was the GOP vice-presidential candidate in 2008. She's also the most prominent woman in the party, she may have been the MVP of the GOP's incredible 2010 election cycle, and she's one of the best speakers that Republicans have to offer. That's why it's such a shame that she's not being given an opportunity to speak at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

    The following quotes are from the paperback edition from Three Rivers Press (New York), ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3. The content is also verifiable from Google Books. It is important to state up front, and reiterate later, that the racist content of Dreams from My Father is 100 percent consistent with Mr. Obama's open association with hate-mongers like Jeremiah Wright and Al Sharpton. Pages 99-101 of the book are particularly informative because Barack Obama talks very explicitly of his racial identity politics. He identifies very clearly as an African-American as opposed to a melting pot American, which makes him totally unqualified to be...

    Most of this will sound depressingly familiar...  ready-made for a malignant narcissist like BHO: "The organizer must become schizoid politically, in-order not to slip into being a 'true believer'.  Before men can act an issue must be polarized.... What I am saying is that the organizer must be able to split himself into two parts- one part in the arena of action where he polarizes the issue 100-to-nothing, and helps to lead his forces into conflict... while the other part knows that when the time comes for negotiations it is really only 10% difference- and yet both parts have to live comfortably...

    Birds of a feather flock together and so when we see Barack Obama stacking his cabinet with radicals, it tells us a lot about his mentality. Of course, the fact that his entire term in office has been nothing but a slow motion evisceration of the American dream should tell you a lot about how he thinks, too -- but a little more evidence is always welcome. Take a look at these quotes from members of Barack Obama's administration and then ask yourself what sort of man WANTS people like this to help him govern the American people? 1) "Somewhat...

    'Political Correctness is tyranny with manners' I didn't change. The Democratic Party slid to the left from right under me. Affirmative action is a stain on the American soul. (Heston famously marched/supported the 1960s Civil Rights cause 'before it was fashionable') Well, we have certainly produced great art before... In my view, there are any number of areas of government which tax money should not be spent. Somewhere in the busy pipeline of public funding is sure to be a demand from a disabled lesbian on welfare that the Metropolitan Opera stage her rap version of Carmen as translated...

    My USA passport (and yours) | 4/1/12 | Self
    I just opened my renewed passport. I decided to look at it carefully to see what has changed since last time, but I got too distracted by the quotes to do the comparison. Inside the cover is a romantic etching of Francis Scott Key seeing that, oh say, that banner is still waving. With a stanza of his poem there, asking the question of our anthem. After seeing the whole passport, I think the question of whether it still waves is no longer just rhetoric. Next we see the quote from Lincoln hoping the government of, by, and for the...

    THE FREEDOM POST ^ | March 16, 2012 | Matthew Burke
    Madison, who's recognized as playing the most significant role in drafting the Constitution, has some of the very most powerful, educational, inspirational, and prophetic quotes of any of our great founders. Most of Madison's famous quotes deal with constitutionally limited government, describing it and justifying it. Reading them causes several bells to go off, because his words illuminate both the "how" and the "why" our government has so drastically bastardized the U.S. Constitution and the founding principles, created to protect us from out-of-control, all-powerful, tyrannical government, which has been the norm throughout history...

    Read Aldous Huxley’s review of 1984 he sent to George Orwell Several months after George Orwell's dystopian classic 1984 was published in 1949, Aldous Huxley sent a letter to his former French pupil. The Brave New World author had received a copy of 1984 from the publisher at Orwell's behest, but his poor eyesight prevented him from finishing the book for several months. In his letter to Orwell, the fifty-year-old author compared the two books' screwed-up futures and saw the Orwellian Oceanic dystopia as a predecessor to his own World State. Wrote Huxley in October 1949: Agreeing with all that...
