Will Obama’s and the Libs’ Failures Lead To A Second American Revolution?

I certainly hope so, but in the way President Reagan won the cold war. This was posted on investors.com, the online journal of Investors Business Daily.

They blamed our country’s current problems on “Washington”. Nice dodge, IBD! And I don’t mean your shiny new car.

That’s bullshit, pure and simple. I’ll agree that the problem is IN Washington, but the problem is not “Washington”.

It isn’t “Washington” that’s to blame for the mess we’re in.

I’ll lay the blame exactly where it belongs: Obama and the dimocrats. They got us into this mess. But other than that, this is a great analytical observation.

Will Washington’s Failures Lead To Second American Revolution?

The Internet is a large-scale version of the “Committees of Correspondence” that led to the first American Revolution — and with Washington’s failings now so obvious and awful, it may lead to another.

People are asking, “Is the government doing us more harm than good? Should we change what it does and the way it does it?”

Pruning the power of government begins with the imperial presidency.

Too many overreaching laws give the president too much discretion to make too many open-ended rules controlling too many aspects of our lives. There’s no end to the harm an out-of-control president can do.

Bill Clinton lowered the culture, moral tone and strength of the nation — and left America vulnerable to attack. When it came, George W. Bush stood up for America, albeit sometimes clumsily.

Barack Obama, however, has pulled off the ultimate switcheroo: He’s diminishing America from within — so far, successfully.

He may soon bankrupt us and replace our big merit-based capitalist economy with a small government-directed one of his own design.

He is undermining our constitutional traditions: The rule of law and our Anglo-Saxon concepts of private property hang in the balance. Obama may be the most “consequential” president ever.

The Wall Street Journal’s steadfast Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote that Barack Obama is “an alien in the White House.”

His bullying and offenses against the economy and job creation are so outrageous that CEOs in the Business Roundtable finally mustered the courage to call him “anti-business.” Veteran Democrat Sen. Max Baucus blurted out that Obama is engineering the biggest government-forced “redistribution of income” in history.

    The question is, what kind of Revolution will be necessary? What form will this Revonlution take? We voted a Revolution in 1994, and did not get what we voted for. I am very much afraid that if we just vote this November, and convince ourselves that it is done, we will get even less. No one really expects the Republicans to take the Senate this time around (of course, no one really expected it in 1994, either). The best we can hope for from that is to stand athwart the river of spending and yell “Stop!”

    I’m not certain how revolutionary that will be. Obama is likely to simply ignore the COngress, and further his aims with Executive Orders that, because the House and Senate are divided will not be able to be gainsayed. Which means we need a better Revolution.

    I’m not sure where that will lead. The voters don’t have the stomache for a real Revolution, and the apparatus for such a thing is not in place anyway. It takes years to put a parallel structure in place and replace the State the way things were do (for example) when the Nazis took over Germany. The last American Revolution to start by seccession didn’t end well for those that secceeded.

    Interesting times, that is for sure. The importance of this upcoming election cannot be overstated.

    You hit the nail on the head with this one. I fear that the public we have now would not fight for ANYTHING. Most will go quietly into the night without even a wimper. In fact, I think some will agree with the Zero and want a more controlled central govt cause you know how unfair that capitalism is…

    I had a conversation with a relative of mine from the Dominican Republic. He really doesn’t get what the big deal about the Arizona law is. His thing was that if people are in a country illegally, they need to be deported. The Dominicans have zero tolerance with the Haitians illegals. They also have a zero tolerance with Europeans or Lebanese who overstay their visas as well. He said the Dominican Press thinks it’s crazy that deported illegals is even an issue.

    He also doesn’t understand why we are allowing Muslims to build a mosque near ground zero. He said it’s a slap in the face against this country and that it will make us look weak. The Dominican press says the same thing that it’s assign of America’s weakness.

    Interesting how a foreigner sees things more clearly.

    He hasn’t spent his life saturated with the pure bullshit that the MFM marinates us in 24-7. Not to mention that he probably has a better education than the average American. Between their control of the schools and the MFM, the Progs control nearly everything that we are taught to believe from childhood on. The only thing they don’t control is what is taught in Church, but they are starting to attack that. You have seen the exampples of the Catholic teacher fired for teaching Catholic doctrine in a class about Catholicism, and the student that was expelled for believinbg standard Christian doctrine on homosexuality. If they control what is taught to be right and wrong, they effectively define what is right and wrong. It puts us in a difficult place.

    While America goes Marxist, Cuba is freeing their economy!

    Raul Castro says state will reduce economic role

    HAVANA — Raul Castro said Sunday that his government will scale back controls on small businesses, lay off unnecessary workers and allow more self-employment — significant steps in a country where the state dominates nearly every facet of the economy.

    Cuba’s president, however, squashed notions of a sweeping overhaul to the country’s communist economic system in response to the financial crisis it faces.

    “With experience accumulated in more than 55 years of revolutionary struggle, it doesn’t seem like we’re doing too badly, nor that desperation or frustration have been our companions along the way,” the president said.

    Castro spoke before parliament, which opened its biannual session without Fidel Castro, who has made a slew of recent public appearances of late but missed another chance to share a major public stage with his younger brother.

    Instead, lawmakers got Raul, who said authorities will “update the Cuban economic model,” suggesting reforms could be on the horizon. Cuban officials plan to reduce state control of small businesses, authorize more Cubans to become self-employed and build a new tax structure that will compel state employees to contribute more.

    The Republican party has been too noodle-spined for far too long. We need leaders- men & women who will stand for & articulate the principles of conservatism. Smaller government. More liberty. More personal responsibility. Enabling people to make the most of their gifts, abilities & drive. Treating people as individuals, not ‘groups’.

    Yes, there are always going to be people who aren’t able to provide for their own needs. But we need, as Rush said, to define compassion not by how many people get welfare, but how many people no longer NEED it, since they’re able to provide for themselves.

    That great Democracy in Iraq!

    US watches from sidelines as Iraqi leadership unravels

    In the middle of last month, US military officials handed Iraq’s interior minister a large, gold-coloured key to mark the transfer of Camp Cropper, the last prison in Iraq under US control. “Now there is some rule of law,” one Iraqi official gushed at the ceremony.

    But just five days later, four prisoners who were leaders of one of Iraq’s most violent insurgent groups escaped. Iraqi officials believe that the detainees, members of an al Qa’eda offshoot called the Islamic State of Iraq, were driven out of the prison by the new warden, who has also disappeared.

    Naturally, this brazen prison break has embarrassed American and Iraqi officials. It also illustrates why the political paralysis in Iraq is becoming more dangerous and unstable. Eager to meet a deadline to withdraw US combat troops by the end of August, American military officials are handing over institutions while the Iraqi political system is in a state of disarray.

    This is what 3,000 Americans died for!

    spit.

    Something needs to be done to these MIT students.

    MIT students helped WikiLeaks suspect, hacker says

    (CNN) — Adrian Lamo, the former computer hacker who tipped off federal authorities to WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning, says two men in the Boston area have told Lamo in phone conversations that they assisted Manning.

    Lamo said both men attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but he refused to identify them because, he said, at least one of them has threatened him. One of these men allegedly told Lamo they gave encryption software to Manning and taught the Army private how to use it, Lamo said.

    Manning, an Army intelligence analyst, is being held in solitary confinement at a Virginia detention facility. He is charged with leaking an airstrike video that the whistleblower website WikiLeaks published in April, and Pentagon officials say he is the prime suspect in last week’s disclosure of thousands of field reports from the war in Afghanistan to the site.

    @ huckfunn:

    I saw that. That is why I mentioned secession both in my comments last night and this morning. When the Federal Government becomes an intolerable burden, it is time for the States to think seriously about Seperation. It couldn’t just be one State. Most States are no longer sufficient to function as States any more, but if you had a number of States willing to peel off as a Unit and cleave to one another as a new Nation (something the Confederates were loathe to do) you might have a viable option. Simply doing nothing as the Obama Administration enforces an Open Borders policy that has not even been voted into law is not an option. Personally, I think Arizona should tell Obama to fuck himself, and begin deporting illegals. Just take them down to the bodrder and set them free as long as they head south. Men with machineguns can keep them pointed in the right direction.

    I remember one instance clearly though it was several years ago. He was a professor of English at a local college. That itself should’ve warned me but I was a bit more naive back then. We were discussing Abu Grahve. He was aghast that we would treat muslims that way. He went on about muslim pride, and the muslim friends he had when he was in Israel. My take was that those picts and goings own were degrading and should not have happened. However to put it in perspective from what I had heard of the goings on at Abu Grahve, I have head of fraternity hazings that were worse. Besides these were guys who were sawing off peoples heads in the name of allah (piss be upon him). Who would do the same to you or me at the drop of a hat, just because we are Jewish, so I really did not care too much about Abu Grahve. Much ado about nothing. He got so pissed I thought he was going to hit me.

    OH NOES!

    Some Jewish people moved into an apartment building in Jerusalem that is… *gasp* OWNED BY JEWS!

    The incident occurred late last week. A group of Jews, with police protection, entered a Jewish-owned building near Flowers Gate in the Old City, and moved in. The building was purchased by a Jewish group around 1987, but the Arabs living there enjoyed protected status – which has now all but expired.

    The UN Position
    UN envoy Robert Serry said in a statement that he deplored the “unacceptable action by armed Israeli settlers who forcibly took over a building, which is home to nine Palestinian families.” He called the action “provocative,” and called on Israel “to remove the settlers from the property and restore the status quo ante.”

    “It is very brazen of the UN envoy to accept the Arab version without even checking the facts,” said Lurie. “We did not physically throw them out, as hardly anyone was home when we arrived. And the fact that the building is owned by Jews is not subject to dispute; the Arabs agree that it is ours.”

    TURKEY -- Antalya Mayor Mustafa Akaydın condemned Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s policy and called on Israelis to once again fill the city’s streets and hotels, this after Israel lifted a severe warning on travel to the country.

    “The friendly relations between our two nations are important to me. I am concerned about the deterioration in ties,” he told Israeli reporters on Monday.

    The diplomatic crisis over the IDF’s raid on a Gaza-bound Turkish ship in late May has kept Israeli tourists away from Turkey, once a favorite vacation spot.

  55. 56 | August 2, 2010 11:00 am

    This can’t all be laid on the Democrats. H. W. Bush signed the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 that let community groups and nonprofit organizations establish a more active role in pressuring bank to conform to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). Republicans in Congress tried to rain in Fanny May and Freddy Mac as well as the CRA but it was a weak attempt that G. Bush didn’t do much to support. They buckled under pressure from ACORN and charges of racism. Not to mention Bush’s deficits and new entitlements. The problem is Washington and the culture that every new administration has to give the public something new and never ever take anything away. All Obama’s done is accelerate a trend toward fiscal Armageddon that began with FDR.

    Yes, the MFM is curiously silent about the fate of anyone of our people who fall into their hands.

    For example I heard about them finding the body of a sailor last who was taken prisoner by the taliban. Absent first was the fact, you don’t murder prisoners. However, I guess the sheer barbarity of these animals who walk on 2 legs, is not news. Secondly I will bet the body was mutilated and showed evidence of torture.

    Reporting these details would help reveal the true nature of the enemy, and gin-up support to fight against the jihad. The MFM obviously does not want that.

    Hope you feel better.

    If you have a cold I remember this advice from a physician’s manual circa the late 1800s. Nail a hat to a wall. Drink spirits until you see 2 hats. :-)

    OH NOES!
    Some Jewish people moved into an apartment building in Jerusalem that is… *gasp* OWNED BY JEWS!
    The incident occurred late last week. A group of Jews, with police protection, entered a Jewish-owned building near Flowers Gate in the Old City, and moved in. The building was purchased by a Jewish group around 1987, but the Arabs living there enjoyed protected status – which has now all but expired.

    The UN Position
    UN envoy Robert Serry said in a statement that he deplored the “unacceptable action by armed Israeli settlers who forcibly took over a building, which is home to nine Palestinian families.” He called the action “provocative,” and called on Israel “to remove the settlers from the property and restore the status quo ante.”
    “It is very brazen of the UN envoy to accept the Arab version without even checking the facts,” said Lurie. “We did not physically throw them out, as hardly anyone was home when we arrived. And the fact that the building is owned by Jews is not subject to dispute; the Arabs agree that it is ours.”woops – Link

    I like that -- they don’t call them pal’s. They name their enemy -- arabs.

    Reminds me of the bad joke about how “Two Dogs Fucking” asked the chief how he would name the members the tribe. By the first thing he sees after they are born, said the chief.

    What the Obamalosi administration did was so far out of line with past practice, it’s a complete change of policy.

    No argument there and it continues.

    “Congress is at work on a new program that would send $30 billion to struggling community banks, in a process similar to the huge federal bailouts of big banks during the financial crisis. This time, money is more likely to disappear as a result of bank failures or fraud.”

    Too small to fail. And of course the banks that get bailed out will be those with connections like Maxine Waters.

    I know (ditto) but it is so rare for them to do so. They are as PC as we are. I just couldn’t believe they actually named them what they truly are! I hope this is a new trend. Just outright reject the pali name! What would be even more fun would be to narrow it even further. Start calling them Jordanians.

    Life without parole with no access to computer equipment sounds about right. Put them in a dark hole and leave them there.

    I prefer the South American method of “disappearing” the culprits with no records kept and no explanations given.
