High Gas Prices and the Marxist tactic of Crisis revolution

Karl Marx, (1818-1883), believed capitalism was the next to last stage in the evolution to an earthly utopia, which would be ushered in through revolution; a revolution resulting from the tensions that existed between workers and the owners of production. According to Marx, the final stage of this evolution toward utopia would result when workers rose up in revolution to overthrow the business owners who were exploiting them through a capitalistic economy. We know Marx’s “utopia” and other aspects of his philosophy by their more prominent name: communism.

Marx’s predictions grew out of his atheistic worldview; a worldview that made him hostile toward private property and the accumulation of wealth through capitalistic means. Although his perceptions of the exploitation of workers and his solidarity with those workers has been rigorously tested and found wanting by historian Paul Johnson, his support for communism and his hatred of privatization and its corresponding freedoms have been a mainstay of the Left since at least 1917, when Vladimir Lenin took them to heart and threw Russia into revolution.

Like Marx, Lenin pointed to the struggles and dichotomies in Russian society in order to postulate solutions; solutions to problems that were not always there. From roughly 1915 through 1917, Lenin repeatedly decried the exploitation of the Russian workers by the land and business owners. This “crisis” not only justified, according to Lenin’s rhetoric, but demanded a revolution that would take power away from the land owners and give “power to the people.”

Lenin’s revolution against the “greedy” landowners was carried out at the end of a gun. The gun was necessary because the crisis Lenin saw was not a crisis that every Russian believed to be real. But as Crane Briton has pointed out in his work on revolutionaries, Lenin was willing to use force to move his countrymen toward what he thought was best for them, whether they agreed with him or not. Lenin’s implementation of Marxism was so stringent, so accurately in tune with Marx’s own predilections for government intervention in every facet of life that Marxism came to be referred to as Marxism/Leninism.

Sadly, this practice of creating a crisis in order to implement a solution has become a staple in today’s Democratic Party. Although each individual Democrat may not hold Marxism/Leninism as his or her political and ideological paradigm, many Democrats in Congress hold to the resulting methodology and have adopted passing legislation as their method for revolution and their solution for every type of crisis known to man, be it healthcare, the environment, gun violence or energy problems. For the Democrats, every crisis is but a segue toward the passage of more and more legislation, furthering the revolution while enslaving the very people they claim to be liberating.

When Bill Clinton constantly perceived various crises which demanded solutions that involved the passage of a new laws, he was unapologetically using the Marxist/Leninist “crisis revolution” tactic to spur passage of Leftist-legislation. For example, with each violent crime, like Columbine or other public shootings that took place during his presidency, Clinton pushed for more gun control to alleviate the crisis but he never enforced laws which were already established. The National Rifle Association’s Wayne La Pierre rightly saw through Clinton’s façade and said publicly that Clinton was tolerating an increase in death and suffering among the American citizenry in order to force the people to adopt and further the gun control programs of the Democrat party. As a result, by creating a crisis sufficient to secure passage of his legislation rather than enforcing the laws that would keep the lives of many single mothers and low income families of every race safer in their neighborhoods and housing units, Clinton actually contributed to the lawlessness that made the streets of our larger cities more dangerous.

Clinton’s presidency ended in 2001, yet the disturbing fact is that Marxist/Leninist ideology and method of “crisis revolution” has rarely been stronger and more dangerous among Democrats than it is right now. The current revolutionary cry is to tax the “greedy,” American-owned oil companies for their “wind-fall” profits. In much the same way that Clinton spoke of gun companies in the 1990s, today’s Democrats demean oil companies with their “shame on you for what you’re doing to the American people” approach, while simultaneously refusing to allow domestic drilling, to increase offshore drilling, or to drill in ANWR.

Like Clinton, the Congressional Democrats, who have created the current crisis, will allow a certain degree of suffering on the part of the people in order to insure their agenda is furthered. They will continue to blame and punish “big oil” for the rise in gas prices just as Clinton blamed and punished Smith & Wesson for the violent crimes that took place while he was in office. Moreover, like Lenin, these Democrats will try to to push their agenda through even if many of their countrymen fail to place the blame on “big oil.” With the backing of the federal government, today’s Marxist/Leninist leaning Democrat party will implement their agenda through “crisis revolution” at the expense of the people by using scare tactics, and raw force when necessary, to silence their detractors.

We must pay attention to the history of Marxist/Leninist ideology and methodology. Lenin’s revolution gave the people death instead of power, Clinton’s pursuit of gun control endangered American lives instead of curbing violence, and the current path of today’s Democrats will only result in even higher energy prices and therefore less discretionary spending by the citizens, which will result in a subsequent drag on our economy that could bring us down a notch from our superpower status; the latter of which has been the real goal of the Left all along.

Therefore, whether one considers Lenin, Clinton, or today’s Obama-led Democrat party, the bottom line is in the end, the people will suffer at the hands of an office holder who uses “crisis revolution” tactics to further their Leftist, legislative agenda. This means we will continue paying excruciatingly high prices in order to give Democrats the opportunity to pull a bait and switch, whereby they can continue to lessen our oil supply by standing in the way of domestic drilling while simultaneously mounting a campaign against the “shameful profits” of American oil companies. Like good Marxists, they do this in order to distract us from the fact that all the class envy and bitterness that undergirds their policies is robbing us of a burgeoning, profitable capitalist society rather than bringing us into a promised utopia.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” – Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

Obama site urges: ‘Revolution’ against U.S. ‘oppressive’ regime

Marxists, socialists, communists form group to plot on official campaign blog

JERUSALEM – Marxists, socialists and communists have created a safe space online to congregate, exchange ideas – including a stated revolution against the U.S. “oppressive” regime – and support their favored presidential candidate.

Their meeting spot? Sen. Barack Obama’s official campaign website, which allows registered users to form groups and post content in online “community” blogs.

One popular community group on the Illinois senator’s official MyObama website calls itself “Marxists/Socialists/Communists for Obama.”

This group is for self-proclaimed Marxists/Communists/Socialists for the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency. By no means is he a true Marxist, but under Karl Marx’s writings we are to support the party with the best interests of the mobilization of the proletariat,” states the groups charter.

“We support Barak Obama because he knows what is best for the people!” exclaims the group’s online creed.

And on Obama’s site, the declared Marxist, communist and socialist bloggersrant against such varied targets as Republicans, capitalism and the Fox News Channel. According to author profiles, the bloggers range from registered voters to underage high school students who state they are looking to foment revolt.

In a posting titled “The Nature of the Proletariat,” one group member calls for revolution against the U.S. “oppressive” regime.

According to Marxist doctrine, the proletariat is the only class that can
overpower and vanquish the oppressive bourgeoisie. … In America, the
‘peasantry’ is not scattered from each other but rather seem (sic) to be
isolated in certain high-population areas. This then leaves the
Petty-Bourgeoisie. Are they a possible force of a Revolution? I believe so. Not
because I think that they could on there own, but because of the fact that they
seemed to have assimilated with the Proletariat.

The middle class is now made up of the laborers who must face the grueling
task of providing the bourgeoisie with power and capital. This assimilation only
proves that the Revolution is inevitable.

“Eventually, the bourgeoisie controlled government will fail to keep the ever growing masses at bay, and the Revolution will occur,” adds the posting.

The user argues Obama will help advance the “revolution,” which he says can be a physical revolt or massive governmental reform:

“The Neo-proleatarian is now the bearer of the Revolution. That’s why I support Obama. He helps destroy the paradigm of bourgeoisie government, which is best for the Proletariat. In the end, this will only hasten the Revolution even if the Revolution must come as a massive government reform.”

Another posting by a registered group member calling himself “The Chalk Graffiti Terrorist” argues on Obama’s site against the “evils” of capitalism.

“We can’t just accept the evil side of capitalism. The nature of capitalism is to maximize profits, and this is often done by minimizing expenditure—in short, cutting costs. And cutting costs means less benefits, less pay, and poorer conditions for the workers. But capitalism has more evil in it than that. The profit motive drives the destruction of our environment, it has caused the current foreclosure crisis, and it exploits and basically enslaves those poor not protected by legitimate representative government.”

One group member urges Obama site readers to support the Fair Tax bill, which calls for the abolishment of the IRS and for the income tax to be replaced with a national consumption tax.

The bill has some support across the U.S. political spectrum, including with some Republicans.
“This bill was created to try and rectify the problems that have emerged from the Federal Income Tax and the IRS’s existence. It would repeal the 16th Amendment and put in its place a national sales tax for the United States Government to collect revenue.”

It was not immediately clear whether Obama’s website staff approves new groups registered on his site. His campaign did not return WND e-mail and phone requests for comment. While the website carries a disclaimer that it does not monitor all blog posts, the site doesn’t state whether staff approve new groups.

According to the MyObama site, there were 18,911 registered community groups as of yesterday, including such groups as “Atheists for Obama,” “Jedi Knights for Obama,” “Muslims for Obama” and “‘The Secret’ Believers for Obama.”
Obama spokesmen previously have stated the campaign cannot monitor all content posted on blogs, but it promptly removes content brought to its attention that is deemed inappropriate or hateful.
Yesterday WND reported a blog posting on Obama’s official campaign site urged Americans to take action to secure the release of imprisoned terrorist fundraiser Sami Al-Arian, comparing the controversial former professor to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
The posting, which has been removed since publication of the story, is just a sampling of a large volume of racist, anti-Semitic and pro-Palestinian rhetoric published on the user-friendly MyObama community blog pages.
One recently removed posting claims Jews control the media. Another referred to Jews as “puppet masters” and “war criminals.” Yet another posting, titled “The Israeli connection to 9/11,” claimed Israeli intelligence was involved in the mega-attack and planted “false flags” to blame Arab countries.
Other MyObama posts have warned of “Judeofacists and their Neocon comrades” who “already destroyed America” and declare the “entire Congress should be overthrown by revolution for having sold America to the Israelis.”
A popular topic on Obama’s site apparently is the so-called Israel Lobby.
An Obama site search under the key words “Israel lobby” brings up a large number of pages with titles such as “Bush uses Nazi history against Obama to pander to the Jewish lobby” and “The Israel Lobby: bad for the world.”

In one recently removed posting, titled, “How the Jewish Lobby works,” the page read, “No lobby is feared more” and claimed Jews “run the Federal Reserve Bank, US Homeland Security, and the US State Department.”

What Has Happened To My Country??

I’ve lived here in this great country all my life. Raised a few kids, paid one hell of a lot of taxes, worked until I could no longer work and now I see this;

Code Pinko’s engaged in sedition and un-American activities, encouraging desertion and mutiny in a time of war;


Punks wearing pink bunny ears that have yet to learn how to spell correctly( bottom right corner of picture “Thaw” instead of “Thou”);

Ex-U.S. president laying a wreath on a gay terrorist’s tomb;

College kids desecrating our flag;

Illegal aliens demanding rights from my country. Rights they have done NOTHING to earn. Rights they trample on by breaking the LAW, flying the flag of their own filthy, corrupt country and that of the murdering commie bastard Che Guevara;


(L.A. Times photo)

And just about the time you think it can’t get worse it does;

A GLIMPSE OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF AMERICA

Note: This article is a satire

Brothers and sisters in Islam, mashallah our taqiyya is doing wonders in America . We have successfully pulled wool over american eyes in making them believe that Islam is not a religion of straight jacket but it is a religion of peace and personal freedom . Here in the video our CAIR hero Ahmed gives an excellent demonstration of lying through his teeth with a straight face and declaring that in Islam women have freedom of choice regarding what to wear.

If you’re a disabled single white male over the age of 50 in this country you are screwed.

WTF!!!! I’ve had enough!!

The tree of Liberty is whithering…….

College Campus or Reeducation Camp?

Indoctrinate U.

Abraham Miller’s review of this important documentary film.

Evan Maloney’s “Indoctrination U” is the film college parents will need to avoid at all costs. Not that Maloney’s characterization of the campus as an Orwellian reeducation camp is inaccurate. Nor are the praises for Maloney as a documentary filmmaker exaggerated. Quite to the contrary, Maloney might well be, as critics claim, America’s best, young, documentary filmmaker, and “Indoctrination U” just might be the most important documentary of the year.
But, after shelling out what can only be characterized as an obscene amount of money to send a child to college, can parents really come to grips with the reality of what their money is buying?
For nearly four decades, I was a college professor, an identity I whisper about behind closed doors. Today, as a parent of one college student and two about to be sent to reeducation camp, I’d like nothing more than to go through some reprogramming myself so that I can avoid the dissonance wrought by too much information.

Brainwashing American Students
By Julia Duin, World Peace Herald.
In the summer of 2007, Harvard appointed an Islamic history professor to head its Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Islamic Studies Program. Harvard is hiring the first of four endowed chairs in the program and is using some of the $20 million donated by a Saudi prince.
Georgetown University received a similar donation—funneling $20 million toward its Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, after its benefactor.
The center, part of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, trains many of America’s diplomats.
Winfield Meyers, director of Campus Watch said: “The prince new very well Georgetown’s in a milieu filled with lobbyists and opinion makers; thus any program of his will exert more influence there than at a university not in a power center like Washington.”
According to one Saudi press organization, the grants are meant to promote understanding and change America’s perceptions of Islam in the most fertile place, the university campus. The practice started around 1976, when the Saudi government established a King Faisal Chair in Islamic Studies for $1 million at the University of Southern California. Since then, grants for endowed chairs in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies centers have popped up at several major universities.
In 1998, the Sultan bin Abdulaziz al Saud Foundation gave $5 million to Berkeley’s Arab and Islamic Studies Center, whose post-docs have gone on to important tenure-track academic jobs, including Oxford, DePaul, Fordham, and Harvard universities.
In July 2000, the Harvard Divinity School accepted $2.5 million from the ruler of the United Arab Emirates to endow an academic chair in Islamic Religious Studies. However, Rachel Fish, a divinity student, began a protest, accusing the sheik of funding an anti-Semitic think tank in his capital, Abu Dhabi. Harvard officials said they would reconsider accepting the gift. In 2004, the sheik withdrew the funds.
The Israel on Campus Coalition, a group of Jewish organizations, released a study recently saying out of about 4,000 American institutions of higher learning, only nine have Israel studies centers, nine have Israel studies chairs, and 16 have visitng professors teaching about Israel.
Zuhdi Jasser, a Phoenix physician and a moderate Muslim who is chairman of the American Islamic Forum For Democracy said: “Islamists such as the radical fundamentalists seen with the Saudi Wahhabis exploit American universal tolerance to provide a vehicle for the dissemination of their propaganda free of critique. It is important to emphasize—‘free of critique’…it is the tolerance which permits that. One hopes that we correct our reponse, not by changing our tolerance, but by intensely critiquing political Islam and its incompatibility withour pluralistic democracy.”
Does this bother you? Consider the cost of tuition at a major university or college for 1 year, around $30 or 40,000 isn’t it? What is it they are teaching our kids at these so called institutions of higher learning? Do you know? Do you care?
For that much money you should know. But it isn’t just about the money.
The left has infiltrated nearly every campus in America. Many are teaching professors or are an integral part of college or university administrations and boards.
You expect your children to graduate with a degree that will set them on a path of self determination and hopefully individual success and prosperity, but it is also likely they will come away from their reeducation masters indoctrinated with a philosophy and ideology that is appalling and quite chilling.
Find out what your children are learning, afterall it is likely your hard earned money that is paying for it.
As a side note and just as important I reference “The List of 45” taken from the book “The Naked Communist”, written by W. Cleon Skousen. You can find the list clearly detailed here, thanks to my good friend Snooper at A Newt One.
Pay particular attention to items number 16 through 19, and 40 to 42. Chilling isn’t it.
To gain an even better in depth understanding you may want to consider reading the book Naked Communist. If you are unable to find this book at your local library or book store, which is likely, it is still available for purchase online at Amazon.com or Alibris.com .
