...from Rosemary's Baby's Mind: Evil

Did ACORN chicanery elect Al Franken?

''It's worth recalling, however, that ACORN is best-known for its massive voter-registration campaigns, which focus relentlessly on getting Democrats elected in targeted states. Here its record is appalling -- and goes to the heart of our democratic electoral system.''

Unless you've been stuck in the Gobi Desert, you've read the headlines about the scandal at ACORN -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Earlier this month, ACORN staffers in four states were caught giving not-so-sage advice to two journalists, posing as a pimp and a prostitute, on how to defraud the government, cheat on taxes and wangle a mortgage for a home-based brothel.
ACORN was once the darling of Democrats for its support of every item on the left-wing wish list. Suddenly, its employees can hardly find a Democrat who will answer their phone calls. When the U.S. Senate voted on Sept. 14 to cut off federal housing dollars for ACORN, the tally was a lopsided 83-7.
ACORN's foibles may seem largely irrelevant here in Minnesota, where the organization has so far been able to keep its nose relatively clean.

Christians: Beware the Malthusian mind!

''Malthusian thinking permeates virtually every social issue on the table today: climate change, abortion and even health care. But how many of these issues are actually products of the Malthusian mind? Just as the "Jewish Problem" pondered by the Nazis wasn't a problem at all, perhaps the same is true of other "problems" pushed at us today. It is at least worth considering even before we feel compelled to provide our own solutions. Why should we accept uncritically "problems" when they may be derived from false premises?''Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
Thomas Robert Malthus would have disagreed. The philosophical forerunner to Darwin, Malthus argued that there are limited resources, and competition for them is intense. When there are too many people competing for those resources, you have war, famine and a continual threat to civilization itself.
For Malthus, the pie is only so big: We must reduce the number of people who want a share of it.
Christianity embodies another solution: Make a bigger pie.
In Christianity, God takes a few loaves and feeds thousands with them. Entrance to heaven is not contingent on space available. Jesus came that we would have life, and life to the fullest. Not just for some, but all.
None of what follows is an argument for Christian indifference to the plight of other people. However, Christians should not advocate "solutions" that repress human liberty, dignity and freedom. For some reason, all of the Malthusian's solutions do just that.
They believe that in order to solve the world's problems, we must reduce the number of people in it. If we cannot do that, they argue, we should be content with a tiny-yet-equal share of the pie. Abundance, if there is any, should be delivered to Benevolent
Government Administrators to be redistributed "fairly" and "equally" to all. Extreme measures may be necessary.
Consider "bioethicist" Jacob Appel, who,
in calling for mandatory genetic screening, said:
The most obvious advantage of mandatory screening is that it will reduce the long-term suffering of the children who are spared
disease. At the same time, preventing future cancers will certainly save tax dollars. These savings could be redirected toward researching new therapies and providing quality care for current patients.
Appel assumes that one cannot simply increase the amount of money for research without taking it from another part of the pie. Usually associated with this mindset are perverse notions of compassion. Note Appel's concept of sparing children from disease: Prevent them from coming into existence in the first place!
The Christian has another idea: FIND A CURE FOR THE DISEASE!

United States To Break Up Soon?

''Will the Russian analyst's prophecies come true in 2010? Probably not. Does that mean that America is impervious to some sort of national demise? Not at all. Is America already in serious trouble? You bet. Could there be some sort of break-up within the United States in the near future? In my opinion, that is a very realistic probability.''

According to Macedonian Radio and Television On-line (MRT), a Russian professor predicts the United States will fall apart in July 2010. MRT reports, "'Mr. Obama is similar to the last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev was also making great promises for the Soviet Union, but the situation was only getting worse,' he said. By next summer, according to Professor Panarin, the US will disintegrate into six blocs--and everyone will get their piece. 'The probability that the United States of America fall apart in July 2010 is more than 50 percent,' said Igor Panarin, Professor at Moscow's Diplomatic Academy within the Russian Federation's Ministry of Foreign Affairs."
MRT went on to report, "Panarin came up with his grim forecast while analyzing the parallels between the Soviet Union in its final days and the current situation in the United States. 'American dream ballooned seven times in 11 years. During Gorbachev era, the Soviet dream ballooned five times.' Americans hope [President] Barack Obama 'can work miracles,' he wrote. 'But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles.'"
See the MRT report
The Drudge Report confirmed the MRT report and added, "Professor Igor Panarin said in an interview with the respected daily IZVESTIA . . . 'The dollar is not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This is a pyramid that can only collapse.'"
At least some of what Panarin said back in the fall of 2008 either has taken place or is in the process of taking place. Drudge reported, "When asked when the U.S. economy would collapse, Panarin said: 'It is already collapsing. Due to the financial crisis, three of the largest and oldest five banks on Wall Street have already ceased to exist, and two are barely surviving. Their losses are the biggest in history. Now what we will see is a change in the regulatory system on a global financial scale: America will no longer be the world's financial regulator.'"

Grafting a 99 cent cheeseburger

''President Obama campaigned on change. He's echoing Marx in his embrace of perpetual change. What's more, he's abandoning his commitments to transparency and honesty by utilizing base political graft to achieve his permanent revolution.''

In March 1850, Karl Marx spoke to the Central Committee of the Communist League. In order to bring about true change, Marx stated, the world needed not a massive, singular upheaval, but a "permanent revolution." The revolution would not be accomplished in a moment; it could be accomplished only through renewed and constant dedication to a political program, by a constant attempt "not to improve the existing society but to found a new one."
President Obama is not a communist, although he certainly has a soft spot for communists ranging from Van Jones to Frank Marshall Davis. Obama is, however, a devotee of the Marxist philosophy of politics: permanent change. Or, in his case, permanent campaigning on change.
While most presidents enter the White House and begin to engage in the
business of executing the laws faithfully, President Obama has seized the massive power of the Oval Office to launch an unceasing, relentless campaign for his own re-election. He has used taxpayer money to pay off his friends and allies, ensuring that they remain in his camp. He has used the weight of the federal government to quash his private-sector foes. And he has used the might of his office illegally, encouraging federal agencies to coordinate with "community organizations" in working with private actors to push the Obama agenda.
On May 12, 2009, according to a report from Arlene Goldbard, the Pratt Center for Community
Development, State Voices and the Nathan Cumming Foundation, the White House sponsored a briefing for over 60 artists and community organizers on "Art, Community, Social Justice, National Recovery." Several agencies of the government were represented. The speakers included: Mike Strautmanis, chief of staff for the Office of Public Liaison, Joseph Reinstein, deputy social secretary for the White House, as well as Mario Garcia Durham, director of presenting for the National Endowment for the Arts.
Obama's buddies from the nonprofit world were there, too: Michelle Miller of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a group that spent almost $61 million on behalf of Obama's election in 2008 and is closely allied to the disgraced ACORN, and Sally Kohn of the Center for Community Change, a far-left organization in support of illegal immigration and nationalized
health care.

The meeting was dedicated to putting community organizers and artists in the same room, with the tacit promise of funding from the NEA ever present. According to the report, that promise was actually more than tacit: Garcia Durham allegedly told the assembled crowd that "government and
its policies should be shaped by participants' voices in connection with the NEA." http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111476

Claiming success no matter what

''This lack of accountability – this claim of success no matter what happens – should surprise no one. Many of us warned about it months ago. Remember, Obama didn't promise to create 3.5 million jobs. He promised to create or save that many. There is no way to test that. If you still have your job, does that mean Obama saved it? If an entrepreneur created a new job, in spite of Obama's destructive anti-business regulatory apparatus, does Obama still deserve the credit?''

This Friday, September's job-loss total will be announced. Whatever the numbers, administration officials surely will tell us that life is better – because of them. "We brought the global economy back from the brink," President Obama said at the close of the G-20 meeting last week. "(B)ecause of the bold and coordinated action that we took, millions of jobs have been saved or created; the decline in output has been stopped; financial markets have come back to life."
This has been the president's theme: His so-called stimulus package,
bailouts for politically connected banks and industries, ludicrously wasteful programs like Cash for Clunkers
, etc. have saved America from the greatest disaster since the Great Depression.
But this theme runs up against some rather unfortunate facts.
In January, the administration's economic models warned that unemployment would hit 9 percent next year if its $787 billion "stimulus" wasn't passed. Passing it would keep the jobless rate under 8 percent before it begins to fall.
Well, the packaged passed – and unemployment in August rose to 9.7 percent.
What's the future for a country built entirely on debt? Find out in "Bankruptcy of our Nation"
OK, economic forecasters make mistakes. Fair enough. But neither the administration experts nor President Obama will acknowledge that their models and strategy are flawed. Instead, they spin the numbers and proclaim success, insisting that the plan is working even though unemployment is higher than they said it would be.

Racists bait, 52 card puke up

''Race is no longer the problem that it once was. That doesn't mean there are not white and black bigots and that every vestige of racial discrimination has been eliminated. What little racial discrimination remains is nowhere near the insurmountable barrier it once was. For the most part, white bigots are no longer respected among whites, and I look forward to the day when black bigots are no longer respected among blacks.''

Former President Jimmy Carter said, "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man." That's from a man who earlier referred to Obama as "This black boy" on the Jim Lehrer "News Hour." New York Times social critic Maureen Dowd said, in reference to Rep. Joe Wilson's shouting "You lie" during Obama's address on health care before the joint session of Congress, "Some people just can't believe a black man is president and will never accept it." Washington Post's Howard Kurtz said he "began to suspect that race was a factor for at least some critics when I heard them shouting about 'the Constitution' and 'taking our country back.'" Kurtz asked whether the massive tea parties and other public protests reflect a "distinct discomfort with the country's first black president." House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, New York Gov. David Paterson, MSNBC's Chris Matthews and other leftists claim that racism is behind criticism of President Obama.
For these people, it is inconceivable that many Americans are outraged by the president's spending policies, budget deficits, industry takeovers, not to mention the appointment of czars, a term that ought to be alien and offensive to American values whether used by a Republican or Democratic president.
KKK's first targets were Republicans – read how Democrats started the group in "Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White"
Obama's presidency is truly a remarkable commentary on the goodness of Americans and how far we've come in resolving matters of race. Obama convincingly won votes in states with insignificant black populations, such as the New England states, Iowa and Minnesota. For the nation as a whole, he managed 53 percent of the popular vote and 365 of the Electoral College votes when he only needed 270 to win. So now Jimmy Carter, Dowd, Rangel and other race-carders want us to believe that the massive discontent with Obama is racism. I say nonsense!

Singing Heil Obama in Jersey

''These songs were not spontaneous kiddie exuberance or extracurricular playground activity. The video makes clear that the teacher was methodically instructing the children, using one talented second-grader to demonstrate exactly how to sing the songs, and coaching students who forgot the words.''

Red alert to parents: If you send your children to a public school, they may be secretly indoctrinated in the cult of Obama-worship. If that's not your plan for your children, you had better act now, before it's too late.
We now know that the "I pledge" video shown in Utah in August, and only afterward discovered by
parents, was not isolated evidence of indoctrination of public schoolchildren in the new cult of Obama-worship. Second-graders in New Jersey were taught to sing songs of praise and fidelity to Barack Obama in February and again in June, and parents only found out about it this month.
Public schoolchildren are now forbidden to sing Christmas carols that mention the real meaning of Christmas (only songs like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" are allowed), but in New Jersey, second-graders were taught to sing lyrics from the spiritual "Jesus Loves the Little Children" in which Jesus' name was replaced with Obama's. They sang, "He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight/Barack Hussein Obama."
Before Obama's election, it was considered a political no-no for Republicans to use his middle name. Beginning with his inauguration in January, he and his followers use Hussein to glorify his Muslim heritage and connections.
The revised lyrics teach the kids that Obama will "make this country strong again." The lyrics promote Obama's Lilly Ledbetter
law by including the line: "He said we must be fair today/Equal work means equal pay."
Let the world know your solution to tyranny and socialism in America with the magnetic bumper sticker: "IMPEACH OBAMA!"
Proving that this rewritten Jesus song wasn't an aberration, New Jersey second-graders were taught to sing a second Obama-personality-cult song to the tune of "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Here are some of the lyrics: "Mr. President we honor you today!/For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say 'hooray.'/Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!/Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!/So continue, Mr. President, we know you'll do the trick/So here's a hearty hip hooray, hip, hip hooray!"

Obama's Juden speech

''It is simply immoral to yield to the anti-Semitic hatred of the so-called "Palestinians" – a euphemism for Arabs who have never had their own country, don't have their own language, don't have their own unique culture, who are free to leave, but don't because they have been treated more than hospitably by their Jewish hosts for the last 42 years. Anyone who does so, Barack Hussein Obama included, should be considered a collaborator in ethnic cleansing and, its ultimate goal, genocide.''

We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel, and we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. – Barack Obama to the United Nations General Assembly Sept. 23, 2009
The Nazis had a word for what Barack Obama declared in the United Nations General Assembly last week.
When a city or a district or a nation was "clean of Jews," it was pronounced "Judenrein."
The goal of the Nazis was, of
course, for all of Europe to be cleansed of Jews – then the whole world.
Am I being harsh?
Not if you understand the nature of Obama's demand for an end to "Israeli
settlements" in Judea, Samaria and even East Jerusalem.
Learn the untold story of Christian persecution in the Middle East in the DVD "Holy Land: Christians in Peril"
Since Obama took office in January, the U.S. government has greatly increased pressure on Israel to halt any and all of the following:
building of new homes and businesses by Jews in these areas;
building additions on existing homes and businesses by Jews in these areas;
repairing of existing homes and
business by Jews in these areas.
Why would the U.S. government want to stop Jews from building homes and businesses in lands that have been under Israel's control for the last 42 years and a part of Israel's
history for the last 3,000 years?
Because the U.S.
government has pre-determined that these lands are going to be part of a future Palestinian state – one that will be conspicuously Jew-free. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111404

Forced adoption if mother refuses to get abortion

''Holdren listed "continuing population growth" as a hindrance to realizing "sustainable well-being," a point he supported by footnoting Paul Ehrlich's 1968 book "The Population Bomb," thereby linking his current thinking with his 1970s-era thinking.''

Obama science czar John Holdren stated in a college textbook that "illegitimate children" born to unwed mothers could be taken by the government and put up for adoption if the mother refused to have an abortion.
Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, argued that "illegitimate childbearing could be strongly discouraged" as a socioeconomic measure imposed to control population growth.
As previously reported, WND has obtained a copy of the 1970s college textbook "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that Ehrlich co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich and Ehrlich's wife, Anne. The authors argued involuntary birth-control measures, including forced sterilization, may be necessary and morally acceptable under extreme conditions, such as widespread famine brought about by "climate change."
On page 786, the authors wrote that one way to discourage illegitimate childbearing "might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption – especially those born to minors who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone."
Alternatively, the authors suggested unwed mothers might place their babies up for adoption, writing: "If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it." http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111475

50 years past, 'Twilight Zone' spans time

"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call 'The Twilight Zone.''

On a Friday night in October 1959, Americans began slipping into a dimension of imagination as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. They've really never returned.
"The Twilight Zone," first submitted for the public's approval by a reluctant CBS, has resonated with viewers from generation to generation with memorable stories carrying universal messages about society's ills and the human condition.
Like the time-space warps that anchored so many of the show's plots, Rod Serling's veiled commentary remains as soul-baring today as it did a half-century ago, and the show's popularity endures in multiple facets of American pop culture.
"I'm interested in the escapist ideas, the psychological nature of the stories," said Lauren Chizinski of Houston, a first-year graduate student in sculpting at Syracuse University who is among two dozen students taking a class on show and its 50th anniversary.
"The Twilight Zone" has been exulted in mediums such as pinball and video games and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride at Disney theme parks.
The original show — which ran just five seasons, 1959-1964 — led to a feature film by Steven Spielberg and John Landis in 1983, and is reportedly soon to appear again on the silver screen from Leonardo DiCaprio's production company. "The whole idea of 'The Twilight Zone' jumped off the television screen and became a catchphrase, a buzzword for something much beyond the TV show itself," Thompson added. "When you say Twilight Zone, it's its own genre. The X-Files was working in 'The Twilight Zone' genre."
Its signature theme song even became part of popular language, allowing people to describe unusual or inexplicable moments with a simple "doo-doo doo-doo," Thompson said. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090929/

World War III Timeline

This is how World War III starts but can you tell me how it ends?

- The Middle East Widespread conflict to bring the entire region into the flames of war, possibly triggered by Iran or militants in Pakistan using North Korean supplied nuclear arms.

- Israel at War -- Against her Arab neighbors, probably Iran and Syria. A Palestinian State will not be established

- Far East -- "Hair-raising nuclear confrontation that threatens mankind's existence" Includes China invading Taiwan and a nuclear eruption on the Korean Peninsula.

- Erosion of Confidence in the political system so severe citizens will be panicked into giving up liberties and Constitutional form of government. The dissolution of the US Constitution is triggered by a significant enough 'terrorist' attack, a nuclear attack on multiple U.S. cities.

- Collapse of the U.S. and other Western economies and moral values.

- Significant population reduction by natural and man-made disasters, easily topping 2 billion souls.

So, who can tell me how this war will end?

President Oakely and his cloned nuts

Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Mayan watch President Obama, watch them,
with his third eye, (December 22, 2012) - no Kool-Aid or Acorn stuffing required.
''No doubt, some will dismiss the newly revealed connections between the Obama administration, Patrick Gaspard, Bertha Lewis, and ACORN as "guilt by association." Yet it seems to me that the evidence points to something more significant than that.''

With the revelation that White House Director of Political Affairs, Patrick Gaspard, has close ties to Bertha Lewis and to ACORN, Matthew Vadum and Erick Erickson appear to be onto something significant. While the Gaspard matter needs further investigation before we form any hard conclusions, it certainly seems to confirm that President Obama’s ties to a whole series of ACORN-controlled organizations are neither minor nor by any means long-past. In fact, making use of what Erickson and Vadum have discovered about Gaspard, we can trace these links still further.
There’s been a good deal of attention to ACORN of late, and deservedly so. Yet for all the fuss, what is arguably the most important Obama-Acorn tie of all has gotten short shrift. During the 2008 election, Obama’s close links to the far-left New Party were revealed and explored (although not by the mainstream press). Yet many seem to have forgotten that the New Party, particularly in Chicago, was dominated by ACORN (and by an ACORN-controlled SEIU union local). During the campaign, I detailed Obama’s New Party ties in two pieces, "
Something New Here," and "Life of the New Party." Important evidence of Obama’s pursuit of the New Party endorsement can also be found in the September-October 1995 issue of "New Ground," newsletter of the Chicago chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. Obama’s New Party ties matter because they show that his links to ACORN went far beyond shared on-the-ground organizing, legal representation, training, or even funding (although all of those ties existed and were important). By running for office with the New Party, Obama was effectively indicating that he shared ACORN’s radical political goals. http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=NjljYzYyMDhlY2Y4MTRhZTI4NGQ5OGVlMGE5YmIzYTI=

The Brzezinski/Obama Axis

''Brzezinski views history through the lens of Marxism, which, despite its atheism, has much in common with Islam. Both Communism and Islam are universalistic ideologies that reject the idea of the nation-state. Both do not regard adherence to treaties between nations as obligatory. Both Communism and Islam are militaristic and expansionist creeds that do not recognize international borders.''

Back in 1985, I wrote an article on Brzezinski for The Intercollegiate Review. Before citing some of the more relevant passages of that article, it should be borne in mind that Brzezinski, a political scientist, served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser. One does not have to read Carter’s Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid to know that Carter is an anti-Semite. Brzezinski has earned the same reputation.
Not only has Brzezinski publicly defended the anti-Semitic canard that the relationship between America and Israel is the result of Jewish pressure, but he also signed a letter demanding dialogue with Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel’s destruction. It behooves us to understand the mentality of Obama’s Middle East adviser.
Long before he became Mr. Carter’s national security adviser, Brzezinski rejected what he and most political scientists term the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet political systems. “This image,” he says, “is held by traditional anti-Communists.” Brzezinski thus affirmed he is not quite an anti-Communist. In fact, he deplores anti-Communism as “a relic of the Cold War, of the age of ideology.”
Not only did Brzezinski reject the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet forms of government, he rejects the very notion of good and bad regimes! Brzezinski is simply a moral or cultural (or historical) relativist, and relativism has certainly modulated Barack Obama’s mentality.
The influence of political scientists like Brzezinski is wide and deep. His relativism prompts him to negotiate with and appease terrorist regimes. With Brzezinski as his adviser, Obama will be more disposed to appease Iran and betray America’s allies, above all Israel.

Futility of two purposeless wars: Iraq and Afghanistan

(Even the geographically declined will notice that Iran lies exactly between two very large American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan)
''Remaining in Iraq and Afghanistan reminds me of sticking a hand in a pail of water. While in the water, the hand creates change. But once the hand withdraws, the water returns to its original condition.''

As of September 28, 2009--American soldiers dead in Iraq: 4,262. Americans wounded in Iraq: 30,182. Americans killed in Afghanistan: 840. Americans wounded in Afghanistan: 1,581. Total Iraqi civilians and Iraqi soldiers killed in Iraq: 733,280 and 1,398,087 wounded. (Source) Refugees created: 2.5 million Iraqi citizens. Cost of the war to U.S. taxpayers: $12 billion every 30 days and, to date, $750 billion. Length of wars: eight years. Estimated end of those two wars: no end in sight. Purpose of wars: none defined, none understood.
One reader said, “How many people do we intend to kill to obtain whatever is our objective in Afghanistan? The Soviet Union killed a million before leaving…the flight schools in Florida were the training camps that made the tragedy for 9/11 possible. And the individuals responsible were not even from Afghanistan—17 of the hijackers were Saudi Arabians! What threat are these Afghans? That is one of the poorest nations in the world. They don’t have missiles, they don’t have nuclear weapons, no air force, they don’t even have a helicopter. What kind of threat do they pose to the U.S. that justifies killing them?”
All for what? Answer: nothing--save making a lot of money for a few corporate heads that invest in the military industrial complex. Iraq and Afghanistan continue as purposeless wars fought by a few American young men and women while the rest of Americans eat pizza, drink beer and cheer their favorite NFL teams.
The disconnect remains SO obscene after eight years as to set the benchmark for immorality, financial debauchery and spiritual obscenity. How can 535 men and women along with two presidents of the United States kill SO many people without purpose? For how much longer? To what end?

Beautiful brains do not equate goodness

''Make no mistake about it, Adolf Hitler was brilliant. His underlying beliefs may have been half-baked and his hatreds overwhelming, but he was a genius when it came to carrying out his plans politically, based on those beliefs and hatreds.''Many people, including some conservatives, have been very impressed with how brainy the president and his advisers are. But that is not quite as reassuring as it might seem.
It was, after all, Franklin D. Roosevelt's brilliant "brains trust" advisers whose policies are now increasingly recognized as having prolonged the Great Depression of the 1930s, while claiming credit for ending it. The Great Depression ended only when the Second World War put an end to many New Deal policies.
FDR himself said that "Dr. New Deal" had been replaced by "Dr. Win-the-War." But those today who are for big spending like to credit wartime big spending for bringing the Great Depression to an end. They never ask the question as to why previous depressions had always ended on their own, much faster than the one under FDR, and without government intervention or massive government spending.
Brainy folks were also present in Lyndon Johnson's
administration, especially in the Pentagon, where Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's brilliant "whiz kids" tried to micro-manage the Vietnam war, with disastrous results.
There is usually only a limited amount of damage that can be done by dull or stupid people. For creating a truly monumental disaster, you need people with high IQs.
Thomas Sowell explains economics in a way that rings with clarity and truth – don't miss his book "Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy"
Such people have been told all their lives how brilliant they are, until finally they feel forced to admit it, with all due modesty. But they not only tend to over-estimate their own brilliance, more fundamentally they tend to over-estimate how important brilliance itself is when dealing with real world problems.
Many crucial things in life are learned from experience, rather than from clever thoughts or clever words. Indeed, a
gift for the clever phrasing so much admired by the media can be a fatal talent, especially for someone chosen to lead a government.
Make no mistake about it, Adolf Hitler was brilliant. His underlying beliefs may have been half-baked and his hatreds overwhelming, but he was a genius when it came to carrying out his plans politically, based on those beliefs and hatreds.
Starting from a position of Germany's military weakness in the early 1930s, Hitler not only built up Germany's war-making potential, he did so in ways that minimized the danger that his potential victims would match his military build-up with their own. He said whatever soothing words they wanted to hear that would spare them the cost of military deterrence and the pain of contemplating another war.

Islam as the 'hand of God'?

''When we stop the slaughter of the unborn and choose leaders who choose life, we will have the spiritual and moral standing to ask God to protect us from foreign and domestic terrorists. If not, they may serve as His hand of well-deserved judgment.''

One of the country's most articulate and credible voices on the threat of radical Islam within our borders stated last week that it is the greatest threat to our nation today beyond any other domestic issues we are addressing. In the strictly national security and geopolitical contexts, this person was right. As she stated, government takeover of health care and other industries are not a concern to those who are dead.
I'll have to admit, however, that my spirit rejected the notion that radical Islam is THE greatest threat to America any more than it was when Muhammad's hordes were sweeping on horseback through northern Africa, the Middle East and into western Europe a millennia ago. Imperialist Islam has been defeated and contained before and certainly can be again.
The question is whether there are as many Christians left in America willing to live and die for our faith, families and freedom as there are orthodox Muslims willing to kill and die for theirs.
The pathetic preaching that has created a generation of shallow, self-focused professing followers of Jesus Christ has done far more damage to our national security than any conspiracies of men of any religion or no religion, any race and any creed could do.
Theologian Francis Schaeffer asserted in his powerful book "The Great Evangelical Disaster" that:
There is only one perspective we can have of the post-Christian world of our generation: an understanding that our culture and our country deserves to be under the wrath of God. It will not do to say the United States is God's country in some special way. … The last few generations have trampled upon the truth of the Bible and all that those truths have brought forth.
The fact is that the blood of nearly 50 million legally (not lawfully) murdered babies has cried out to the throne of heaven. It demands justice, and the merciful God who I believe governs over all the universe could not turn a blind eye to the child sacrifice pandemic in and by the country once hailed as a "shining city on a hill."
Does Rick Warren's spiritual agenda include New Age elements? Find out in Warren Smith's "Deceived on Purpose"
Barack Hussein Obama and the reprobate minds governing most of our governing entities were elevated to civil authority by a people who have largely rejected the God of our fathers, the authority of His written word and 2,000 years of history – all in desperate search for a human king who would take care of us. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirlwind.

The real threat to America: Godlessness

''The implication of what I am saying is far-reaching. Fascism, an authoritarian form of government with ugly features, is not an international conspiracy and a global threat to the United States. Global socialism, however, is. There are innumerably different socialist parties and movements. They are all fruits of the same rotten tree and lead inevitably to a totalitarian system.''

There is a great deal of confusion regarding the nature of the Nazi movement. Most if not all people who are familiar with the events of those years agree that its leaders were criminals. But quite a number of them, especially in the media, call Nazis fascists. Even though the bloody years of Nazi rule ended 64 years ago, the definition of who they were is of great importance for today. Without it we would be blind to reality.
As a German World War II veteran who grew up under the Nazis and who has studied about everything that has anything to do with their ideology, it is not difficult to define their reality. One principle theme of my 280 radio and television interviews in America has always been the comparison of the moral and ideological basis of the German Nazi society of that time and the American society of today. That theme also enters my books and articles.
Nazi society was based on lies, and lies are in the process of taking over America. I try to clarify for the American people that the ideological attack on America is part of the global attempt to eliminate God everywhere, replace Him with arbitrary rule of (leftist) man and destroy freedom. Godlessness brought Germany down. Godlessness is America's and freedom's No. 1 enemy.
Nazi is an abbreviation for National Socialist. Nazis are Socialists. That means they are radical left-wing. Fascists, on the other hand, have to be placed on the right. To put the label of fascism on National Socialism is an invention by the Soviet and East-German Communist leaderships after the war. It is meant to eliminate in the public mind the embarrassing link between the Nazi movement and socialism and hide the deadly threat to free society. After they had launched their antifascist movement, they made the label of fascism stick with the help of leftist media around the world. They also invented the word Nazism, a ridiculous word creation also used in the U.S., for the same reason: to replace the correct definition National Socialism.

There's good reason not to trust Obama

Let me say it again – I don't trust Barack Obama, and neither should you. And it has nothing to do with the color of his skin. How can we trust a commander in chief who values playing basketball more than he does giving immediate and full attention to his general's desperate plea for more troops? What other president, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro notwithstanding, has publicly threatened and bullied privately owned companies in his own country for providing accurate information pursuant to what his proposed measures will truly mean for their clients?
Obama promised that his administration would be based on transparency. Yet, it took external news and information sources to expose Van Jones. And to date, Obama still has not revealed that which we are finding out on our own about his other czars, the power they have and their true political affiliations.
Where is his transparency pursuant to legislation intended as payback to unions for their support? Has he taken to his teleprompter to tell the nation that in order for non-union contractors to get government contracts they must hire union laborers, even though they are non-union? Has he told the nation that he is forcing non-union contractors to pay union wages and in some instances even contribute to union pension funds? Has he told us by what constitutional authority he took over the banking and
automobile industries?
Speaking of transparency, why won't he produce his birth certificate? Why are his transcripts and most other artifacts that concern his life being kept from public scrutiny?
He is the president that tried to
slip the Employee Free Choice Act with its "card check" provision by us. He is the president trying to saddle us with cap-and-trade. He is the president who supports health care for illegal aliens. His is the administration that came up with the "cash for clunkers" program – a program, I argue, that will ultimately serve only to put people in debt for that which they could have easily done without. Now he is using every means at his disposal to convince us we have the worst health-care system in the world, to vilify and threaten the insurance companies
and to have us believe that only a government-involved (read: government-run) health-care system will save the day.
Obama is trying to convince us that the same government that was so spectacularly incapable of handling the $3 billion
cash for clunkers program can now handle health care, which is one-sixth of our total economy, with more efficiency than it handles the post office and more cost effectiveness than Medicaid. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111310

Pink slips: Our nuclear option

''Can't wait until November 2010 to let Congress know how you feel? Now you don't have to. Put Congress on notice before they pass the most dangerous legislation of our lives. Fed Ex boxes with personal, individualized messages delivered to their office – on the issues that matter most to us – attached to a pink slip – a tangible warning about what matters most to them.'' Congress has tuned out the town halls and record-breaking tea parties. They've turned a deaf ear to our switchboard-jamming calls and deleted our e-mails.
All the while, socialized
medicine is on a fast track to ration our health care and bill us for baby killing. Cap-and-trade has already passed the House to tax us for driving to work and heating our homes. Thought-crime legislation is sitting in a conference committee threatening to Criminalize Christianity. And more trillion-dollar spending bills are on the way.
How can we possibly fight all these attacks effectively with a Congress that isn't listening?
I believe we've found a way.
What is it that members of Congress care about most? It's not their hostile agenda. It's not even their liberal leaders. The three things members of Congress care about most are: 1) getting re-elected, 2) getting re-elected, and 3) getting re-elected.
That's nice, but we can't wait until 2010 – if they keep going at this rate, we may not have a country or any freedoms left to protect.
It's time for a "
nuclear option" of our own. We must deliver a message they can't ignore on the issue they care about most: keeping their jobs.
That "nuclear option" is officially launched. I announced it at the How to Take Back America Conference to hundreds in a sold-out crowd in St. Louis and to a hundred thousand watching online.
We are going to put Congress on notice with a personalized pink slip delivered to their door by Fed Ex.
With one click of a button we can now send all 535 members of the U.S. House and Senate a personalized pink slip – reminding them that they work for you. They'll also get the message that if they vote for government
health care, cap-trade, hate crimes, or any more spending, their "real pink slip" will be issued in the next election. Signed by you, their employer. It also asks them to write and inform us of what they intend to do. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111349

Keep politicians 'in the pink'

What's the next big thing?
Americans have been rising up and showing their righteous anger at tea parties, at town halls and, spectacularly, at a march in Washington that probably topped 1 million participants, according to my trained observer eyes that have seen many a Capitol demonstration since the 1960s.
I think the next big thing might be
the "pink slip" campaign.
It's already well under way, with a goal of inundating Capitol Hill with 5 million "pink
slips" – written notices that we're not going to take Congress' power grab and big-spending ways. After just four days, we're very close to have sent the first 1 million pink slips, individually addressed and including the name and address of the sender, to every member of the House and Senate.
It's a big undertaking, but Americans are responding because they understand how close we are to losing our country's unique heritage of self-
government, individual rights, prosperity, sovereignty and independence.
That's why I think this kind of action may well be the next big thing.
After all, nothing like this has ever been done before.
Can you imagine the looks on the faces of those members of Congress when they see boxes and boxes of "pink slips" being delivered to their offices by Fed Ex
It's all the brainchild of a friend of mine, a real patriot and super-organizer (not to mention a weekly WND columnist), Janet Porter.
She came up with the idea of flooding Congress with notices that 2010 is right around the corner and that we are watching our officials very carefully.
I think 2010 could be a historic election. I would not be a bit surprised if Congress changed hands like it did in 1994.
But this campaign is not about electing Republicans. It's about displacing big spenders and Big Government proponents in both parties. It's about shaking things up. It's about making a statement. It's about putting Congress on notice that enough is enough. It's about saying: "You keep this up, you're gone."
It's hardly an idle threat.
Look at the polls.
Americans are ready to take their country back, and they are looking for ways to make their voices heard.
The "Send Congress a Pink Slip" campaign is a unique opportunity to do just that.

'Iran threatens our survival'

"The appeasement road is not going to work with Iran," he replied. "It will be Israel and the reality of the situation that will convince Washington. I cannot see any U.S. administration ready to submit to radical Islamic jihadism. President Obama told Prime Minister Netanyahu at their last meeting that he was committed not to allow a military nuclear Iran, and I hope he will keep his word."

"For us, a nuclear-armed Iran is an existential threat," Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Yaalon told the author in a private audio-recorded interview in his Jerusalem office on June 14, 2009. "We have to be ready to defend ourselves."
What I was next told by Yaalon was confirmed to me by virtually all Israeli officials in the Netanyahu government that I interviewed: Iran's nuclear weapons program is an existential threat to the survival of Israel, to the extent that Israel is reluctantly prepared to launch a pre-emptive military strike on Iran, with or without the approval of the United States, as early as the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010, if the United States and the world community fail to stop Iran.
Today, Yaalon is the second highest official in the Israeli government, outranked only by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. President Shimon Peres serves as Israel's ceremonial head-of-state.
Yaalon has the both the military background and experience at the highest levels of the Israeli
government needed to judge realistically the threat represented by Iran's nuclear weapons program. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=111377

Mr. President, please stay off TV

The Limits of Charisma

The president's problem isn't that he is too visible; it's the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words "I" and "my." (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) Obama is a historic figure, but that is the beginning, not the end, of the story. There is only so much political mileage that can still be had by his reminding the world that he is not George W. Bush. It was the winning theme of the 2008 campaign, but that race ended nearly a year ago. The ex-president is now more ex than ever, yet the current president, who vowed to look forward, is still reaching back to Bush as bogeyman.
He did it again in that U.N. speech. The delegates wanted to know what the president was going to do about Israel and the Palestinian territories. He answered by telling them what his predecessor had failed to do. This was effective for his first month or two. Now it is starting to sound more like an excuse than an explanation. http://www.newsweek.com/id/216210

DNC Failed to Certify Obama as Eligible in 49 states

''After all, NO actual birth certificate has ever been released by Obama. A COLB, which anyone born anywhere in the world could purchase from Hawaii in 1961, in fact at least two different COLB’s from Hawaii, are all that has been offered by Obama.''

When I first became aware that the Democratic National Committee prepared, signed and notarized two slightly different Certification of Nomination documents for the Obama-Biden ticket in the 2008 election, I was shocked and after verifying both documents as real, I wrote about it in The Theory is Now a Conspiracy and Facts Don’t Lie released on September 10, 2009.
The question was obvious – Why TWO different DNC Obama certification documents, and why did one have proper certification of constitutional eligibility in it, while the other had that certification deleted?
The Obama camp had been using the defense that the DNC had properly vetted and certified Obama’s eligibility for months. Judge after judge had used that claim and the fact that Obama’s COLB (Certification of Live Birth) had been “Snoped – FactChecked – blogged and twittered” as “legal proof” that Obama was eligible for office, despite the very real fact that Obama has never released any authenticated proof on the subject.
Then we find out that the DNC did NOT certify Obama as eligible under Article II – Section I of the Constitution, in 49 of 50 states. The DNC had only filed such certification in the state of Hawaii, Obama’s alleged birth place. The other 49 states received a Certification of Nomination which did NOT certify Obama as constitutionally eligible for office.
This story caused a firestorm of interest, comment and speculation across the web, leading Bob Unruh at World Net Daily to ask,
What does Pelosi know about Obama’s eligibility? http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/15127

'Deliver Us From Obama', Amen

''One little four-word prayer to see you through the darkest of days: “Deliver us from Obama”.''
Invoke the prayer every time you see Obama flashing at you from the boob tube; every time you see his picture on the cover of a magazine and you’ll be praying most of the time. You can invoke “Deliver us from Obama” every time you hear grade school children chanting, “Mmm mmm mmm, O-bam-a!”
“Deliver us from Obama” is a perfect prayer because it puts believers in touch with the real Messiah and for those who prefer a more secular world, it cuts through an ever burgeoning cult back to reality.
In a day where lies masquerade as the truth and where human serfdom is at the end of the Hope and Change Rainbow, the “Deliver us from Obama” prayer is solace.
Besides its beauty and sincerity this prayer has another advantage: You can invoke it any time of day or night and the ACLU, Nancy Pelosi and the Obamabots will never know.
They can purge the words “In God we Trust” from the quickly tanking greenback, forbid the name of God from being uttered at public gatherings, and outlaw the Ten Commandments, but they cannot remove “Deliver us from Obama” from the human heart and lips.
You can say your prayer every time you see Obama’s face where ever and whenever.
According to Reuters, Obama mania has now reached China, where Obama’s picture is imprinted over that of China’s late leader Mao Zedong in the popular tourist area of Houhai in central Beijing on thousands of shirts and pouches. This latest cult craze is called “Oba Mao”.

Uhm, uhm, uhm: The real threat to nation's freedom

''With the loss of our freedom and liberty, Mr. Obama and friends will have fundamentally changed America into a country that looks more like Hugo Chavez's Venezuela than it does George Washington's
Mount Vernon.''

Last week the dedicated men and women of the FBI and local law enforcement displayed extraordinary skill and professionalism in thwarting several plots hatched right here in America by terrorists determined to destroy us.
We all owe a tremendous amount of gratitude for the ongoing daily efforts to protect us from the ever-present threat of radical Islamists. Wiretaps of overseas communications and constant
surveillance of suspected bad guys are providing safety I believe many in America take for granted.
But I have a message for the yet-to-be-caught terrorists still in America: If you really want to hurt our nation, drop your plans of any future attacks.
The party of big government led by Mr. Obama is doing a fine job of destroying our country as we know it. He and his party have us more torn apart than ever before. Another attack would only bring us together – just as it did on Sept. 12, 2001. We would stand shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity against you, so you would be fools to attack us again.
The Left is doing the work for you.
With legislation ranging from expensive cap and trade based on flimsy
science to the government takeover of health care, Americans are now viewing their government as a true threat to our personal liberty and freedom, both of which are the very foundation of America's greatness. I can't imagine going to jail for not having health insurance, but the Democratic Party sure can. I can't imagine paying more for energy just because Al Gore and his pals want to make billions on naiveté. George Soros and Keith Olbermann sure can.
We now have a president who speaks at the U.N. and never once addresses the madness of a man committed to wiping a sovereign nation off the map – a man who denies the murder of 6 million Jewish people during World War II. The prime minister of Israel was the only man to hold the moral high ground in condemning the body that would welcome such a man.
Where was our president? Where was our moral clarity?
Mr. Obama now starts every speech with, "This is not about me." And then he proceeds to talk about himself for the remainder of the speech. He talks about how he will save the planet from
global warming and how he will rid the world of nuclear weapons and bring peace. He points to "his" efforts that saved us from another Great Depression and how it is he who will clean up Wall Street, the banks, the car industry, the securities industry and provide government-mandated health insurance.
Not about him? Give me a break. It is all about him.

You cannot defeat your enemy unless you know who they are

''I know many Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama is just a nice, charismatic, Caucasian/Negro man who worked his way up from middle class to become the leader of the free world. They bought the big lie sold to them by the liars for hire in the so-called mainstream media and cable networks like MSNBC and CNN.''

Back in 1992, less than a year after I began my journey of learning the truth about who really runs this country, who the traitors are and how deep the corruption runs, Bush, Sr. began promoting a new world order. As a matter of fact, he used that term 162 times while he was president. [1] Those of us who tried to explain the planned destruction of America were called the usual names: wackos, anti-government this or that. The same year, Joe Biden, traitor to this republic, openly on the senate floor outlined the 'Wilsonian Vision' for a new world order.
One world government. New World Order. Just code words for anti-government, "disenfranchised" kooks writing all those books because they hate President Clinton. No, make that Bush, Jr. No, make that Marxist Obama/Soetoro. Millions like me have given up precious time with our family, fun is a word of the past and forget any paychecks - just because we don't have have anything better to do! What I learned in the first year of my research scared the hell out of me and that took care of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. There was a job to do and that was try and reach every American who would listen. Back then, there were few. Now, we are on the brink and the destroyers no longer hide their intentions:
Obama to Usher In New World Order at G-20 - FOX News
The usurper talks about uniform international monetary regulations. What Comrade Obama speaks of is a component of one world government: One world banking system. All but a fait accompli and it will destroy what's left of our economy and our sovereignty. It will end up reducing us, our children and grand children to poverty like third world countries. Watch Joan Veon's concise explanation on video. To defeat your enemy, you must understand them and always remember: He who controls the money and the gold controls everything.
One world government means one world religion and that's where the Rick Warren's of the world come into play. Warren's mission is "modern religion." His crusade is to build a "unified theology" which pushes "civility". I've watched him and he's very slick. There is a huge effort world wide to "blend" the world's religions, ending up with some wacky version the "New Age" baloney. The number one goal, of course, is to destroy Christianity in this country. It is essential in fostering communism because communism can only flourish in a Godless nation. Global domination under a brutal, communist, totalitarian force is the ultimate goal.
One world military. That would be all nations troops put
under the control of the communist UN. No more sovereign nations, no more borders. Regionalizing all the nations on the globe while sacking and looting the more prosperous ones, beating them into the ground while subsidizing "poor" countries and enriching brutal dictators around the world. (Obama to donate $400,000 to Charities run by Gadhafi's children - that's OUR money.) Get in the way of the destroyers and you will find yourself on the other end of a US missile or other ordnance full of depleted uranium. Brute force. http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd471.htm
