Once upon a time there was a great nation built on free market and capitalism. The whole world knew you could come to America with nothing in your wallet and turn it into something prosperous. Many families of this nation have these stories of distant relatives coming from other countries with nothing and with a little hard work and some risk would make something of themselves. Well, I have to break it to you, those days are probably gone. The days of capitalism are dwindling as Washington D.C. is appearing more like Moscow in the late Soviet Union, than the United States of America that we knew and loved as under administrations like President Reagan. With big government taking control of most of the large corporations in the U.S. they are now finding it acceptable to regulate pay too. This idea is surely making our founding fathers roll in their graves!

Just recently the pay czar, Ken Feinberg, authorized the pay cuts of 50-90% for many CEOs who’s companies participated in the government bailout. This didn’t include all the companies that participated, no, it was only seven certain ones: Bank of America Corp., American International Group Inc., Citigroup Inc., General Motors, GMAC, Chrysler and Chrysler Financial. The two big ones who’s CEOs will not receive pay cuts are Goldman Sachs and GE. The reason being because these companies are going along with every major policy decision of the Obama administration.

These bought out, er, I mean bailed out companies are not the only targets though. This is also to include any business that the government, the treasury, or possibly, the fed deems is too economically important to fail. That would mean small business too, or the Chamber of Commerce who represents over 3 million businesses that engage in the free-market system. This administration wants to control your right to make money! The Federal Reserve in correlation with Ken Feinberg, has also proposed to monitor pay packages at thousands of banks, including those that never received bailout money. And this proposal covers a huge scope of nearly 6,000 banks and a wide range of employees, everything from executives to traders to loan officers.

Excuse me, but I am most positive that there is no where in the constitution that gives the executive branch the authority to regulate what privately owned businesses should pay their employees. I know some of you might say that because these companies took buy out, I mean bailout money that the government has every right to regulate their salaries. However, if that was the case instead of the administration making these decisions it should be the people whose money was used for the stimulus, but even that is not constitutional.

So here we are again looking at the Obama administration making anti-capitalist decisions leading us down the road of socialism to the town of communism. Which in essence is when the government is in charge of the economy. Is this the true intentions disguised by President Obama? And is this really what those who voted him into office had in mind when promised a new kind of politics? I would like to think not.  Like it or not, capitalism is what has made this country strong. Like a family to be formed starting with a Mother and a Father, in a successful society there must be those who make enough money to pay those whom they employee. A classless society where there is no wealthy may sound Utopian to some, but it can not, has not, and will not ever work.

Capitalism- an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

Communism- a : a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics b : a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production c : a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably d : communist systems collectively. ( Like Health Care Reform)

Marxism- the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx; especially : a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society.

Over the past 10 months of Barack Obama’s presidency we have seen many new people added to the members of the White House. The vast majority of these new people, put into place by President Obama, have Marxist or Communist ties of some sort. A number of them are open about it, being members of revolutionary groups and citing known Communists or Marxists in speeches in the recent past. And others are a little more hidden, being uncovered by past remarks, friends, associates, and writings that were never made well known. Is this purely a coincidence? I honestly do not think that is the case. It is proven time and again through history that you are who your friends are, and you usually hold many of the same views as the company you keep. Why would President Obama put into power so many people with one common factor? I’m sure you already know the answer.

Here is the latest reveal of yet another White House authority, Anita Dunn, the communication’s director. She stated that Mao Tse Tung (a mass murderer responsible for more deaths than Hitler) was one of her favorite political philosophers, one that she turns to the most. And she directly quoted him while giving a speech to an audience of high school students. (video below)

Is it any surprise now that, with Ms. Dunn being the communication’s director, of the White House communication’s staff is now plotting a more aggressive way to deal with news stories that they find unflattering? Not at all, she is not the first in the Obama administration to attack free speech. But she is on the rampage. She told Time Magazine this week, “that she and her team were no longer going to “just sit back and defend ourselves, because [conservative media] will say anything. They will take any small thing and distort it.” She also said in a telephone interview as reported by NYTimes, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”

We can clearly see, that Anita Dunn is like a child who has been caught steeling. She is kicking and screaming, trying to point the finger at anyone but herself. In this case, she is pointing at the one’s who have called her out, the conservative media. This is a normal liberal tactic to divert attention from their agenda. But the video of Ms. Dunn, like the many videos of other White House authorities, shows that there is no distortion, only the facts. And the facts are, the people being put into power in the Obama administration are heavily relying on and favoring Marxist and Communist tactics and policy.

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s Chief of Staff, said “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” I would have to say that President Obama, Democrats, and now one Rhino are certainly making sure they slip in every dirty little thing possible during the economic down turn of America. Way to take advantage of that crisis! The Democrats are now chomping at the bit to pass their health tax, er I mean, care reform bill as a bipartisan legislation now that as of today Rhino Republican, Sen. Olympia Snowe, said that she will vote for the legislation. This will make her the one and only Republican to support the Democrat’s proposal. Not really surprising as she only voted conservative 12% of the time in 2008.

This health care bill is just as much a load of filth as the other democrat propositions. It is, of course, government controlled, but the best part is that we will get to start paying for it as soon as President Obama signs even though it would not be fully implemented until the year 2013. This is cleverly disguised as a huge tax on private insurance companies. And it doesn’t require guineas to know this would make health insurance prices sky rocket even further, so in essence it is a hidden tax on everyone. The bill would also require those who are currently uninsured to purchase insurance.

On Fox News it was reported that, “The accounting firm study projects the legislation would add $1,700 a year to the cost of family coverage in 2013, when most of the major provisions in the bill would be in effect.” And also, “Premiums for a single person would go up by $600 more than would be the case without the legislation, the PricewaterhouseCoopers analysis concluded in the study commissioned by the insurance group.” Unfortunately, what those just starting out have to look forward to according to this study reported by Fox News is, “The study projected that in 2019, family premiums could be $4,000 higher and individual premiums could be $1,500 higher.”

In the long run, by 2013 it will be so costly to have private insurance with this bill that those who are not among the wealthy would be forced to go with the government insurance. And for the people who can not pay for their government insurance, this will be a heavy burden on the country’s finances.  As stated on NewsMax.com,

“Expanding coverage to the uninsured is likely to lead to more health care spending, Elmendorf said. But other provisions, such as a tax on high-premium health care plans, could push spending down. “We simply have not done the analysis to net that out,” he said.”

With talk of a second “stimulus package”, the weakening of the dollar as a world currency,  and the irresponsibile aspirations of government health care, you can almost guarantee the deeper economic decline in the US. I am no mathematician, but I do know you can not spend your way out of dept,  sooner or later you will have to pay that which you owe. Unfortunately, that burden will primarily be on our future generations.  I also know you can’t bleed people dry with taxes when they are already suffering from rising costs of living. It is a recipe for disaster. Not to mention the penalties for not having insurance as I have reported on in my post titled, “Obama’s Promise For No New Taxes Was A Lie.” However, they claim they have made this portion of the bill “better” by exempting more people and lowering penalties for those who don’t comply with the requirement to purchase insurance. But isn’t this America? Shouldn’t we be free to purchase or not purchase insurance according to our desire? We are throwing away our freedoms little by little and giving them to the government to allow our country to turn more and more toward socialism and communism. This government dependence is creating an erosion of the American dream. And you can bet that the health tax (care) bill will only be the beginning.

We hear little on the news now of the declining economy here in the United States, in fact, we hear that the Stimulus has gone as planned. We hear that the economy is slowly picking up again and that consumer spending is growing. But how can this be when the jobs are being lost at record rates, homes are still being lost, and government is still trying to “spend” it’s way out of a recession? It’s not true, that’s how. And the whole world can see it, and they can see that the tactics of the Obama administration are only making matters worse.

Obama economist jokes: Strategy is communism

If you were not aware of what our country is doing to our economy this should give you a pretty good idea. We have in the past months been told by several nations to slow our spending, stop the stimulus money, stop the unnecessary programs, and other advice since the stimulus packages by President Bush and President Obama have been passed. The Obama administration is not taking heed to any advice though and just keeps on spending, keeps suggesting more government controlled programs that we don’t want and they can’t afford.

So, what do we get in return? The United Nations wanting to replace the US dollar (which is the current world’s reserve currency) and replace it with a new global currency. Is this good for the US, no, of course not. This could ultimately send us into an economic collapse in which we may never recover. But can you really blame them? Look at how carelessly Obama and the two Houses have been just freely spending money like it will never run out in order to fund the socialistic agenda. I saw a quote by Margaret Thatcher that reminds me of this, it said “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” Obviously, from this article in the Telegraph, we can see that our global financiers are not going to be doing so much longer.

Read the article here:

UPDATE 09/14/09:

Report from the International Monetary Fund stated, “…the international supply of two key reserve assets—gold and the U.S. dollar—proved inadequate for supporting the expansion of world trade and financial development that was taking place.”

World Net Daily’s Jerome Corsi comments, “If the plan succeeds, the United Nations would effectively end up replacing the United States as the issuer of the one-world international currency used as the standard of foreign exchange to settle international trade transactions,” Corsi wrote. “The move would obviate the need for any nation state in the future to be the arbiter of world trade, marking yet another blow to national sovereignty on the path to one-world government.”

I for one think that communism would not work here in America. We simply have too many bull headed people out there that would not stand for it. I pray that I am right. But I can’t deny the surprising finds that I have been coming across in researching the people that have been put into power in our country lately. The vast majority are either openly communist, or socialist radicals, or we can see through their actions and affiliations that they are indeed that. This really has caught me somewhat off guard as I was leaning more toward the softer of the two, thinking that many were merely borderline socialist but still wanting to uphold the constitution and the other laws that have been laid out in our country. Only recently have I come to realize it is a complete overhaul that most of the current administration is looking forward to implementing. Now, it becomes even more chilling when those who have lived through a communist regime, Russians, are coming forward and warning Americans of the signs that they see happening in our country.

Stanislav Mishin wrote an article titled “American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper,” in which he details the similarities he sees in the American government and economy with the previous Russian communism. The article Stanislav wrote is very powerful and thought provoking. And for the American patriot, it is near heart breaking. He begins by pointing out the begining was within the past 20 years or so, “First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics.” In truth, our schools are ran by the US Department of education.

Second, he goes on to religion stating, “Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another.” I do not think this goes for all churches. There are a great deal that are still only centered around God, however there have been those that have been revealed to be bending their values for “current times”.

The post by Stanislav Mishin then moves on to the present day. Referencing the administration we now have in office, Stanislav says:

“The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.”

Now, if that doesn’t send chills down your back as an American, then I don’t know what will. How is it that someone in another country can see it and yet so many in America blindly follow along willingly giving up their rights and freedoms without a care in the world? I’ll tell you. It is because he has seen it, he has been there and witnessed communism and socialism first hand. He knows what it does to a country. I have only touched a little on this compelling article which goes on to make many more important points. But the one that got to me the most is the very end. And it is what I will leave you with in my post. As quoted from “American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper”:

“The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.”

Another article from a Russian professor warning of America’s collapse:

http://www.prisonplanet.com/russian-professor-collapse-of-america-could-begin-in-two-months.html

Mark Lloyd, the newly appointed chief diversity officer at the Federal Communications Commission has an interesting stance on freedom of speech indeed. Although Mark Lloyd has stated that he finds the Fairness Doctrine unnecessary, his comments and previous speeches and writings prove that he does in fact support the overall goals of the Fairness Doctrine though be it through a back door method. Mark Lloyd does in fact support more regulation, more taxes and fines, increased government intervention into the commercial media such as public radio, and more in which he believes asserts diversity. Such as in the Center for America Progress proposal co-authored by Mark Lloyd which said:

“. . . a spectrum use fee should be levied on owners to directly support local, regional, and national public broadcasting. A fee based on a sliding scale (1 percent for small markets, 5 percent for the largest markets) would be distributed directly to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting with clear mandates to support local news and public affairs programming and to cover controversial and political issues in a fair and balanced manner. We estimate that such a fee would net between $100 million and $250 million.”

Mark Lloyd’s more popular public stance is one in which he praises Hugo Chavez. He praises the way that he took over the media and controlled what was once ran by the people of his nation. Lloyd calls Chavez “incredible” and “dramatic.” So, I guess Mark Lloyd is saying he approves of Hugo Chavez forcing private media out of business? It would appear that way. He has made his opinions very clear and even put them into writing as recently as 2006 in his book Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America. In that book Lloyd reveals his opinion of the First Amendment (our freedom of speech) by stating this:

“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least blind references to freedom of speech or press serves as a distraction from the critical examination of other communication policies. The purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules [by the government], fines, and regulations, that would promote democratic governance.”

Unbelievable! You see, not only does he not hold freedom of speech in any high esteem, but he seeks to do away with it to promote democratic governance. This should alarm you no matter who you are. This isn’t a matter of bipartisanship, it is a matter of telling you what to think. It is a matter of telling you what you can and cannot know. It is EXACTLY the same thing that Hugo Chavez has done in Venezuela, the same that Mark Lloyd has praised.

Now, I hate to be the barer of bad news, but this is yet another communist “czar” being put in the White House. Is there anyone else who thinks this is just a little suspicious that all these people being put in are fans of socialism or communism? There are more; John Holdren, Van Jones, and Mark Lloyd are just a couple that I have touched on. I have a great deal of concern for the future of our ability to voice our opinions. I have a great deal of concern for the future of our freedom as a whole. Media has such a big way of reaching out and forming community with others, no matter what your political opinion is, it should never be silenced.

I suppose that Diane Watson should have moved to a communist country a long time ago, because she sure does seem to love all aspects of their way of life. She uses race to draw people in to think that those who oppose President Barack Obama’s policies are not only racist but also anti-American. It sounds to me that it is the other way around. Race has absolutely nothing to do with opposition to a tyrannical government. Diane Watson praises Fidel Castro as “one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.” And loves what he has done with health care (one of the poorest on earth). She leaves a bad taste in my mouth and has no business as a United States official or an official of ANY country wishing to be free. The following article shows the video of her condescending speech and the author of the article makes some excellent points regarding Diane’s rant as well.

You may think that the story of President Obama electing to have John Holdren as the head of his Science and Technology Policy department as old news, but with the recent fear mongering of the swine flu, global warming, and other such events, I believe it is very much still a live story in need of more research. At first glance in researching John Holdren you will find that in the 1970’s he was a major adjocate for compulsory abortions in the U.S. and a “Planetary Regime”.

Having co-authored Ecoscience, it was well known John Holdren’s stance on population control and the repercussions thought at the time of letting people breed freely. The methods to unknowingly sterilize a population included methods tried by the Nazi’s, Soviet’s, and communists such as adding infertility drugs to a national food or water supply, and forced abortion to name a few. It also goes into a radical and unrealistic stance on what could happen if population were to get out of control in reference to resources and environmental impact. Like I said before, this is all very easy to find.

Now, the not so easy to find was the recent opinions of Mr. Holdren. In 1995 he also co-authored an essay called, The Meaning of Sustainability: Biogeophysical Aspects, published by the World Bank on the need to eventually have “world of zero net physical growth” and “population limitation” to sustain economic activity (ummm…very interesting considering the current economic events). Now suddenly, upon being appointed to a position in the White House his opinions change? In his White House interview he explained as stated by www.wnd.com, “when asked if he still felt population control was appropriate, health care and opportunities for women, as well as education, naturally create families more likely to have fewer children, thus solving the potential problems of population growth.” I don’t think so. Someone holding so tightly to a belief for so many years would not let it go so easily. Not to mention, Obama knows Holdren’s past, works, and beliefs having both gone to Harvard. Obama is no dummy, he would not have manged to get elected as President of the United States of America had that been the case.

In conclusion, the question in many minds at this time is if there is a connection between John Holdren’s past and the current events with the economic instability (made worse by the stimulus and will be more so by a passing of health care reform), myths of global warming, and the fear mongering of the H1N1 virus. One would have to wonder, with his new found powers as Science Czar and only having to answer to the President of the United States, not obligated to answer to Congress, John Holdren definitely warrants more scrutiny and a watchful eye on his handling of his office. Our founders would be rolling in their graves if they knew that the President gave such unlimited powers to an unelected official.
