Obama’s Socialist Soulmate–Baby Killer Kagan–Partial Birth Abortion Advocate–Progressive Radical Socialist!

“The greatest evil is not done in those sordid dens of evil that Dickens loved to paint but is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clear, carpeted, warmed, well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.”   

~C. S. Lewis

There are many reasons Elena Kagan should not be confirmed for the position of Supreme Court justice, but the one that should rule her out is here role in drafting the language of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology  on partial birth abortion when she worked for President Clinton.   

She clearly is an individual that believes the ends justify the means, which makes her a very dangerous person for those who believe in the rule of law and not the rule of man or the rule of few.   

A person who finds the words that results in the killing of human life, an unborn baby, should not be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.   

Both President Obama and his nominee Elena Kagan are baby killers for aiding and abetting abortions, the murder of unborn babies.

Both were endorsed by Planned Parenthood, whose founder, Margaret Sanger an advocate for eugenics, birth control and abortion said:

“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”   

Since the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973 there have over 50,000,000 abortions performed in the United States.   

Abortion is not rare in the United States.   

It is common.   

The evil  is spreading.   

Stop the baby killing by voting out of office any politician of either political party who votes in favor of the confirmation of Elena Kagan as a Supreme Court justice.  

      “If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people to not kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.”  

~Mother Teresa of Calcutta  

Sen. Hatch and Elena Kagan Discuss Abortion

 

 Kagan’s Abortion Distortion

Shannen W. Coffin 

“…There is no better example of this distortion of science than the language the United States Supreme Court cited in striking down Nebraska’s ban on partial-birth abortion in 2000. This language purported to come from a “select panel” of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), a supposedly nonpartisan physicians’ group. ACOG declared that the partial-birth-abortion procedure “may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman.” The Court relied on the ACOG statement as a key example of medical opinion supporting the abortion method. Years later, when President Bush signed a federal partial-birth-abortion ban (something President Clinton had vetoed), the ACOG official policy statement was front and center in the attack on the legislation. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kopf, one of the three federal judges that issued orders enjoining the federal ban (later overturned by the Supreme Court), devoted more than 15 pages of his lengthy opinion to ACOG’s policy statement and the integrity of the process that led to it.Like the Supreme Court majority in the prior dispute over the Nebraska ban, Judge Kopf asserted that the ACOG policy statement was entitled to judicial deference because it was the result of an inscrutable collaborative process among expert medical professionals. “Before and during the task force meeting,” he concluded, “neither ACOG nor the task force members conversed with other individuals or organizations, including congressmen and doctors who provided congressional testimony, concerning the topics addressed” in the ACOG statement. 

In other words, what medical science has pronounced, let no court dare question. The problem is that the critical language of the ACOG statement was not drafted by scientists and doctors. Rather, it was inserted into ACOG’s policy statement at the suggestion of then–Clinton White House policy adviser Elena Kagan. …”  

“…Miss Kagan’s decision to override a scientific finding with her own calculated distortion in order to protect access to the most despicable of abortion procedures seriously twisted the judicial process. One must question whether her nomination to the Court would have the same effect.”

Elena Kagan: No Respect for Science
Mary L. Davenport, MD

“…Incendiary memos written by Elena Kagan in 1996 have surfaced from her stint as President Clinton’s domestic policy adviser. At that time, Congress was in an uproar over the recently invented technique of partial birth abortion. Many Americans were horrified when they learned about this brutal abortion procedure, in which second and third trimester fetuses were killed by having their brains sucked out and skulls collapsed.   

 
 
 
 

 

At that time there were no studies on partial birth abortion. It is clear from these documents that a “select panel” convened by ACOG (the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) did not believe that the partial birth abortion was necessary to safeguard maternal life or health. The American Medical Association opposed the procedure. However, President Clinton himself had insisted (inaccurately) that these abortions were done only in extreme circumstances  and were necessary to prevent adverse health consequences for women and preserve their future fertility.  For ACOG to have asserted that there was no medical necessity for the partial birth abortion procedure would have been a political disaster for the Clinton administration.

     

So Elena Kagan induced ACOG to alter its position. We see in her handwriting the statement     

“Although other options are available to save the life or preserve the health of the mother, whether or not the intact D and X (ACOG’s name for partial birth abortion) is the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance is a decision that must be made by the doctor.”

     

Her formulation was adopted almost verbatim by ACOG.  It was cited in subsequent court decisions striking down versions of the partial birth abortion bans. One judge’s decision presumed ACOG’s opinion was the deliberation of an august scientific body, rather than the reflections of a clever political activist .

     

Of course the illusion that partial birth abortion is a medically necessary procedure could never have been sustained without the willing collusion of ACOG. ACOG, the principal professional organization of the 52,000 U.S. OBGYN physicians, claims to serve as a “strong advocate for quality health care for women.” Yet its policies have consistently mirrored the most radical elements of reproductive health ideology, rather than mainstream medical opinion. …”
 

Roe v. Wade

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973),[1] was a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. The Court held that the constitutional right to privacy, articulated in Griswold v. Connecticut, extends to a woman’s decision to have an abortion. It added, however, that this right must be balanced against the state’s two legitimate interests for regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting the mother’s health. Noting that these state interests become stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the mother’s current trimester of pregnancy:   

  • In the first trimester, the state’s two interests in regulating abortions are at their weakest, and so the state cannot restrict a woman’s right to an abortion in any way.
  • In the second trimester, there is an increase in the risks that an abortion poses to maternal health, and so the state may regulate the abortion procedure only “in ways that are reasonably related to maternal health” (defined in the companion case of Doe v. Bolton).
  • In the third trimester, there is an increase in viability rates and a corresponding greater state interest in prenatal life, and so the state can choose to restrict or proscribe abortion as it sees fit (“except where it is necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother”).

In disallowing many state and federal restrictions on abortion in the United States,[2] Roe v. Wade prompted a national debate that continues today, about issues including whether and to what extent abortion should be legal, who should decide the legality of abortion, what methods the Supreme Court should use in constitutional adjudication, and what the role should be of religious and moral views in the political sphere. Roe v. Wade reshaped national politics, dividing much of the nation into pro-choice and pro-life camps, while activating grassroots movements on both sides. …”

“To avoid being mistaken for such a sellout, I chose my friends carefully: the more politically active black students, the foreign students, the Chicanos, the Marxist professors and structural feminists, and punk rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Frantz Fanon, Euro-centrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet, or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting Bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.”

Beatings and abuse made Barack Obama’s grandfather loathe the British

The President-elect’s relatives have told how the family was a victim of the Mau Mau revolt

Ben Macintyre and Paul Orengoh

“…Barack Obama’s grandfather was imprisoned and brutally tortured by the British during the violent struggle for Kenyan independence, according to the Kenyan family of the US President-elect.

Hussein Onyango Obama, Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather, became involved in the Kenyan independence movement while working as a cook for a British army officer after the war. He was arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years in a high-security prison where, according to his family, he was subjected to horrific violence to extract information about the growing insurgency.

“The African warders were instructed by the white soldiers to whip him every morning and evening till he confessed,” said Sarah Onyango, Hussein Onyango’s third wife, the woman Mr Obama refers to as “Granny Sarah”.

Mrs Onyango, 87, described how “white soldiers” visited the prison every two or three days to carry out “disciplinary action” on the inmates suspected of subversive activities.

“He said they would sometimes squeeze his testicles with parallel metallic rods. They also pierced his nails and buttocks with a sharp pin, with his hands and legs tied together with his head facing down,” she said The alleged torture was said to have left Mr Onyango permanently scarred, and bitterly antiBritish. “That was the time we realised that the British were actually not friends but, instead, enemies,” Mrs Onyango said. “My husband had worked so diligently for them, only to be arrested and detained.”

Mr Obama refers briefly to his grandfather’s imprisonment in his best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father, but states that his grandfather was “found innocent” and held only for “more than six months”. …”

President Obama to Get Internet Kill Switch?


 

INTERNET KILL SWITCH!

Rockefeller Lieberman Cyber Security Act of 2009 would Give the President an Internet “Kill Switch”

The problem with a Kill Switch for the internet

EPIC FAIL – Joe Lieberman Claims America Needs Chinese Style Internet Kill Switch

Obama to be given the right to shut down the internet with ‘kill switch’ (link in description)

This is a naked attempt to be able to control freedom of speech and communication on the Internet.

Time to purge, dump and flush the progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties out of their offices into the toilet of time.

Any politican supporting an internet kill switch, amnesty for illegal aliens, and a cap and trade energy tax should be voted out of office .

Obama’s So-Called Stimulus: Good For Government, Bad For the Economy

Glenn Beck & Tom Woods – Road to Serfdom

Free Markets and Small Government Produce Prosperity

When the European progressive radical socialists, a.k.a. Social Democrats, tell President  Obama to stop stimulus spending, your would think the President would finally get a clue.

Unfortunately the educated fool, economic illiterate , and progressive radical socialist in the White House believes that more government spending, more taxes and more debt is the solution for wealth and job creation.

The American people will give the President an education in November that he will not soon forget.

It is the economy stupid!

No jobs, no votes.

The worse month of the Great Depression was March 1933 when there were 13 million Americans seeking full time employment.

There are now over 30 million Americans looking for a full time job.

There are over 40 million Americans on food stamps or using a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) card.

There are over 30 million illegal aliens living and working in the United States.

President Obama wants more stimulus spending that will require more and higher taxes, more national debt and more unfunded liabilities.

President Obama wants to give amnesty to the illegal aliens living and working in the United States.

President Obama refuses to close any Federal Government Department or major Federal Government program.

President Obama refuses to stop illegal immigration.

The United States economy is in the worse depression in terms on the number of American citizens unemployed in its entire history–The Obama Depression.

The reason the economy is in such bad shape is President Obama listened to Keynesian economists such as Paul Krugman and Lawrence Summers and implemented a stimulus spending package that has failed to deliver or create jobs in private sector that would reduce the unemployment to full employment levels.

President Obama needs to fire his team of economic advisors, start cutting Federal Government spending, and extend the Bush tax cut rates.

Otherwise expect the official unemployment rate to exceed 10% for a least the next two  years.

Economist Roubini on World Debt

Time to close Federal Government Departments permanently.

Will either the Democratic or Republican parties actually do this.

No, both parties are deeply penetrated with progressive radical socialists.

Ask your congressional and senate candidates do you support closing down permanently at least ten Federal Government Departments?

Ask them do you support having a surplus Federal Budget until the United States no longer has a National Debt.

Ask them do you support the FairTax that replaces all Federal taxes with a national sales consumption tax?

Ask them do you support closing down Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Reserve System.

Ask them do you support bringing the American troops home from around the world?

Ask them do you support deporting illegal aliens?

Ask them do you support getting the United States out of the United Nations and the United Nations out of the United States?

Ask them do you support voluntary affordable portable individual health insurance plans being available for purchase across the United States as well as the repeal of Obama Care?

No is the usual answer.

This is not change.

It is denial of reality.

It is fiscal irresponsibility.

It is cowardice.

It is time to vote these lying cowards out of office–Democrats and Republicans–purge the progressive radical socialists from  their political offices.

Dump them in the toilet and flush.

US Government is MUY LOCO…

 

Obama Doesn’t Care About YOU…

“…Even though he had voted for Obama, McChrystal and his new commander in chief failed from the outset to connect. The general first encountered Obama a week after he took office, when the president met with a dozen senior military officials in a room at the Pentagon known as the Tank. According to sources familiar with the meeting, McChrystal thought Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated” by the roomful of military brass. Their first one-on-one meeting took place in the Oval Office four months later, after McChrystal got the Afghanistan job, and it didn’t go much better. “It was a 10-minute photo op,” says an adviser to McChrystal. “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about him, who he was. Here’s the guy who’s going to run his fucking war, but he didn’t seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed.” …”

Rufus Wainwright – Across The Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru deva om.

Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
and call me on and on across the universe.
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box,
They stumble blindly as they make their way across the universe.
Jai guru deva om.

Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter shades of love are ringing through my open mind,
Inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns,
It calls me on and on across the universe.
Jai guru deva om.

Nothing’s gonna change my world (8X)

“…Despite the tragedies and miscues, McChrystal has issued some of the strictest directives to avoid civilian casualties that the U.S. military has ever encountered in a war zone. It’s “insurgent math,” as he calls it – for every innocent person you kill, you create 10 new enemies. He has ordered convoys to curtail their reckless driving, put restrictions on the use of air power and severely limited night raids. He regularly apologizes to Hamid Karzai when civilians are killed, and berates commanders responsible for civilian deaths. “For a while,” says one U.S. official, “the most dangerous place to be in Afghanistan was in front of McChrystal after a ‘civ cas’ incident.” The ISAF command has even discussed ways to make not killing into something you can win an award for: There’s talk of creating a new medal for “courageous restraint,” a buzzword that’s unlikely to gain much traction in the gung-ho culture of the U.S. military. 

One soldier shows me the list of new regulations the platoon was given. “Patrol only in areas that you are reasonably certain that you will not have to defend yourselves with lethal force,” the laminated card reads. For a soldier who has traveled halfway around the world to fight, that’s like telling a cop he should only patrol in areas where he knows he won’t have to make arrests. “Does that make any fucking sense?” asks Pfc. Jared Pautsch. “We should just drop a fucking bomb on this place. You sit and ask yourself: What are we doing here?” 

The rules handed out here are not what McChrystal intended – they’ve been distorted as they passed through the chain of command – but knowing that does nothing to lessen the anger of troops on the ground. “Fuck, when I came over here and heard that McChrystal was in charge, I thought we would get our fucking gun on,” says Hicks, who has served three tours of combat. “I get COIN. I get all that. McChrystal comes here, explains it, it makes sense. But then he goes away on his bird, and by the time his directives get passed down to us through Big Army, they’re all fucked up – either because somebody is trying to cover their ass, or because they just don’t understand it themselves. But we’re fucking losing this thing.”

Rufus Wainwright – Rules and Regulations

I will never be as cute as you, according to the board of human relations
I will never fly as high as you, according to the board of public citations

These are just the rules and regulations
Of the birds, and the bees
The earth, and the trees,
Not to mention the gods, not to mention the gods

All my little life I’ve wanted to roam
Even if it was just inside my own home
Then one little day I chanced to look back
Saw you sittin’ there, being a sad culprit

These are just the rules and regulations
Of the birds, and the bees
The earth, and the trees,
Not to mention the gods, not to mention the gods

These are just the rules and regulations
Yeah, these are just the rules and regulations
And I like every one, yes I like every one
Must follow them

“…When it comes to Afghanistan, history is not on McChrystal’s side. The only foreign invader to have any success here was Genghis Khan – and he wasn’t hampered by things like human rights, economic development and press scrutiny. The COIN doctrine, bizarrely, draws inspiration from some of the biggest Western military embarrassments in recent memory: France’s nasty war in Algeria (lost in 1962) and the American misadventure in Vietnam (lost in 1975). McChrystal, like other advocates of COIN, readily acknowledges that counterinsurgency campaigns are inherently messy, expensive and easy to lose. “Even Afghans are confused by Afghanistan,” he says. But even if he somehow manages to succeed, after years of bloody fighting with Afghan kids who pose no threat to the U.S. homeland, the war will do little to shut down Al Qaeda, which has shifted its operations to Pakistan. Dispatching 150,000 troops to build new schools, roads, mosques and water-treatment facilities around Kandahar is like trying to stop the drug war in Mexico by occupying Arkansas and building Baptist churches in Little Rock. “It’s all very cynical, politically,” says Marc Sageman, a former CIA case officer who has extensive experience in the region. “Afghanistan is not in our vital interest – there’s nothing for us there.”  …”

Rufus Wainwright – April Fools

Oh what a shame that your pockets did bleed on st. valentine’s
And you sat in a chair
Thinking “boy i’m such a prince!”
Well, life’s a train that goes from february on
Day by day
But it’s making a stop on april first

And you will believe in love
And all that it’s supposed to be
But just until the fish start to smell
And you’re struck down by a hammer

Sure, you were swift
When the handsome greek boys dropped by with gifts
You are suave
Thanks to ribbons that open sesame
But in the stars and closer to home, in every planet
It ain’t hard for me and dear jo jo to see

That you will believe in love
And all that it’s supposed to be
But just until the fish start to smell
And you’re struck down by a hammer

So let it all go by
Looking at the sky
Wondering if there’s clouds and stuff in hell

And you will believe in love
And all that it’s supposed to be
But just until the fish start to smell
And you’re struck down by a hammer

General McChrystal Last Afghanistan Press Conference

A Sad Day

Thomas Sowell

“…This is, after all, an administration that waited for months last year before acting on General McChrystal’s urgent request for 40,000 more troops, which he warned would be necessary to prevent the failure of the mission in Afghanistan. He got 30,000 eventually– and a public statement by President Obama about when he wants to start withdrawing American troops from that country.

In no previous period of history has an American president announced a timetable for pulling out troops. They may have had a timetable in mind, but none of these presidents was irresponsible enough to tell the world– including our enemies– when our troops would be leaving.

Such information encourages our enemies, who know that they need only wait us out before they can take over, whether in Afghanistan or elsewhere. At the same time, it undermines our allies, who know that relying on the United States is dangerous in the long run, and that they had better make the best deal they can get with our enemies. …”

“…Some people see a parallel between McChrystal’s “resignation” and President Harry Truman’s firing of General Douglas MacArthur. No two situations are ever exactly the same, but some of the parallels are striking.

MacArthur was proud not only of his military victories but also of the fact that he won those victories with lower casualty rates among his troops than other generals had. But General MacArthur too was not always discreet in what he said, and also had reasons to have contempt for politicians, going all the way back to FDR, who cut the army’s budget in the 1930s, while Nazi Germany and imperial Japan were building up huge military machines that would kill many an American before it was all over.

If we are creating an environment where only political generals can survive, what will that mean for America’s ability to win military victories without massive casualty rates? Or to win military victories at all?”

The Runaway General

By  Michael Hastings

Jun 22, 2010

“…From the start, McChrystal was determined to place his personal stamp on Afghanistan, to use it as a laboratory for a controversial military strategy known as counterinsurgency. COIN, as the theory is known, is the new gospel of the Pentagon brass, a doctrine that attempts to square the military’s preference for high-tech violence with the demands of fighting protracted wars in failed states. COIN calls for sending huge numbers of ground troops to not only destroy the enemy, but to live among the civilian population and slowly rebuild, or build from scratch, another nation’s government – a process that even its staunchest advocates admit requires years, if not decades, to achieve. The theory essentially rebrands the military, expanding its authority (and its funding) to encompass the diplomatic and political sides of warfare: Think the Green Berets as an armed Peace Corps. In 2006, after Gen. David Petraeus beta-tested the theory during his “surge” in Iraq, it quickly gained a hardcore following of think-tankers, journalists, military officers and civilian officials. Nicknamed “COINdinistas” for their cultish zeal, this influential cadre believed the doctrine would be the perfect solution for Afghanistan. All they needed was a general with enough charisma and political savvy to implement it. 

As McChrystal leaned on Obama to ramp up the war, he did it with the same fearlessness he used to track down terrorists in Iraq: Figure out how your enemy operates, be faster and more ruthless than everybody else, then take the fuckers out. After arriving in Afghanistan last June, the general conducted his own policy review, ordered up by Defense Secretary Robert Gates. The now-infamous report was leaked to the press, and its conclusion was dire: If we didn’t send another 40,000 troops – swelling the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan by nearly half – we were in danger of “mission failure.” The White House was furious. McChrystal, they felt, was trying to bully Obama, opening him up to charges of being weak on national security unless he did what the general wanted. It was Obama versus the Pentagon, and the Pentagon was determined to kick the president’s ass. …”

General McChrystal: the fall guy for the president’s failure?

By Con Coughlin

“…In time of war – particularly one as challenging as the brutal conflict currently being fought by Nato forces in Afghanistan – you would expect an American president to give the campaign his undivided attention. But the fact that Mr Obama could hardly be bothered to contact the commander of the most important military campaign of his presidency tells its own story.

If Mr Obama had devoted more time to working with senior commanders such as General McChrystal, he would have a more profound understanding of the enormous strains and pressures they endure. He might then have been inclined to take a more lenient approach to a magazine article that did little more than reflect the every day tittle-tattle that goes on in any officers’ mess. Gen McChrystal was clearly out of order, but after he issued a fulsome apology, a severe reprimand, rather than outright dismissal, would have sufficed.

But that is not this president’s style. Ever since he entered office seventeen months ago, Mr Obama has proved to be exceptionally thin-skinned when it comes to handling criticism, as revealed by his administration’s long-running feud with the Fox News network.

A president who actively encourages the relaxed “no drama Obama” image of his administration, and who heads for the nearest golf course whenever the opportunity presents itself, is prone to the most spectacular hissy-fits the moment he finds himself under pressure. And his over-the-top “kick ass” response to BP’s involvement in the Gulf oil spill has displayed to a wider audience the more truculent side of this president’s nature.

But it also reveals how Mr Obama’s laid-back approach has created a dangerous erosion of political authority at the White House. While Mr Obama is busy with his golf buggy, his senior advisers spend their time indulging in titanic power struggles over policy. So far as Afghanistan is concerned, this week it resulted in the dismissal of the man who had become synonymous with the success of the Nato effort. …”

Kafka Biography

“…Kafka’s success may be measured by his presence in popular culture as well – almost every student knows the story of the guy who turns into a bug, and Kafka is one of the few writers to be truly a “household name.” Indeed, he has become the embarrassed father of the word “Kafkaesque.”
It’s a strange adjective, one supposed to express the feeling that something in our great mechanical city is simply not right. In the curvature of the letters we find a labyrinthine line of desks, where the sacred names of people are stamped, shoved into drawers, and forgotten. Somewhere, maybe behind the word or above it, is a distant law telling us that this isn’t the way things should be; but we, unfortunately, are stuck in the middle of it, perhaps between the a and the e, wondering where we’re to go and laughing at our situation – just to be able to laugh at something.
What makes matters even more hopeless is that “Kafkaesque” is so overused, it has become a cliché to talk about how the word “Kafkaesque” is a cliché. When, in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Ark of the Covenant gets “filed” in a warehouse in Washington DC, we can make ourselves look smart by turning to each other and saying, “Hmmm . . . very Kafkaesque.” And when we find out that the men in black in The Matrix are machines dressed up like pale CIA desk-jockeys, we can dance in circles and sing, “It’s just like Kaaaaaafka….” When we get lost in a maze of tax forms, read about the latest dictator executing people who haven’t done a thing, or just wake up feeling guilty and paranoid, we can tap our copies of The Trial and mutter, “Yup, it’s all in here.” The concept has become so overdone that the word “Kafkaesque” means practically nothing . . . and isn’t that nothing so very Kafkaesque?
Whether we like it or not, Kafka has become an indelible part of our culture. His insecurities are what self-help books have been trying to brush beneath the carpet. His sense of humor shows us how comically mistaken we are. His spiritual quest is ours. The problems he faced in his life and illustrated in his work are the same that we must face today. In Kafka, we have the heart of our humanity beat down into a few slim volumes. It might be beneficial to find out what we’re all about. …”

Franz Kafka

http://www.themodernword.com/kafka/kafka_images.html

Franz Kafka
“…Franz Kafka (German pronunciation: [ˈfʁants ˈkafka]; 3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) is one of the most influential fiction writers of the early 20th century; a novelist and writer of short stories whose works, only after his death, came to be regarded as one of the major achievements of 20th century literature.

He was born to middle class German-speaking Jewish parents in Prague, Bohemia, now part of the Czech Republic, in what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The house in which he was born, on the Old Town Square next to Prague’s Church of St Nicholas, today contains a permanent exhibition devoted to the author.[1]

Kafka’s work—the novels The Trial (1925), The Castle (1926) and Amerika (1927), as well as short stories including The Metamorphosis (1915) and In the Penal Colony (1914)—is now collectively considered to be among the most original bodies of work in modern Western literature. Much of his work, unfinished at the time of his death, was published posthumously.[2]

The writer’s name has led to the term “Kafkaesque” being used in the English language. …”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Kafka

The Trial

“…The Trial (German: Der Prozess) is a novel by Franz Kafka, first published in 1925. One of Kafka’s best-known works, it tells the story of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime never revealed either to him or the reader.

Like Kafka’s other novels, The Trial was never completed, although it does include a chapter which brings the story to an end. After his death in 1924, Kafka’s friend and literary executor Max Brod edited the text for publication.

The Trial was filmed and released in 1962 by director Orson Welles, starring Anthony Perkins (as Josef K.) and Romy Schneider. A more recent remake was released in 1993 and featured Kyle MacLachlan in the star role. In 1999, it was adapted for comics by Italian artist Guido Crepax. …”

Immigration Gumballs


Comprehensive immigration reform is a code word for amnesty for illegal aliens which President Obama fully supports. 

President Obama is seriously considering issuing an executive order that would give nearly 20 million illegal aliens amnesty and eventually full U.S. citizenship.

Should President Obama actually go forward with such an order, he would guarantee the defeat of most Democratic Party candidates running for reelection in 2010 and 2012 as well as his own impeachment and conviction under the U.S. Constitution.

Sudden Impact – “Go Ahead. Make My Day”

Since over three out four voters oppose illegal immigration, one only wonders why does President Obama want to commit political suicide?

Obama = Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

 

Has President Obama suddenly realized that he is not up to the job and more and more Americans are coming to the same conclusion. 

There are over 30 million American citizens looking for a full-time job and over 40 million receiving food stamps or a supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) card. 

There are over 30 million illegal aliens living and working in the United States. 

There are over 15 million American citizens officially unemployed in the United States with the real number over 25 million unemployed. 

There are between 10 million and 20 million illegal aliens employed at jobs that Americans need, want and should have. 

During the worse month of the Great Depression in 1933 there were over 13 million Americans unemployed. 

Instead of enforcing U.S. immigration laws and removing illegal aliens from the workplace and deporting them back to the their country of origin, President Obama is holding the American people hostage. 

President Obama will not stop the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens by securing the American borders until the illegal aliens living and working here now are given amnesty under a comprehensive immigration reform bill. 

For this alone President Obama should be impeached and convicted. 

President Obama’s own Secretary of Labor is aiding and abetting illegal immigration with this commercial. 

Obama’s DOL Secretary Hilda L. Solis: You Have the Right to Be Paid Fairly Whether Documented or Not

http://hotair.com/archives/2010/06/21/obama-wh-to-illegals-well-help-you-get-paid-fairly/ 

The only right an illegal alien has when they break into the United States, obtain fraudulent documents, and work here illegallly  is to be removed from the workplace, arrested and deported to their country of origin. 

The American employers that benefit from hiring illegal aliens should be prosecuted as well. 

The American people believe Senator Kyl. 

The American people do not believe, trust nor respect President Obama. 

Why? 

President Obama has a justly deserved reputation for being an habitual liar. 

President Obama’s refusal to vigorously enforce United States immigration law that he is required to do is legal grounds for impeachment under the United States Constitution. 

President Obama should be impeached and convicted for not defending the Constitution of The United States of America which requires him to defend the states when they are invaded. 

How many more millions of illegal alien invaders must the American people endure before removing a President of the United States who refuses to enforce immigration laws and defend America’s sovereignty and secure the borders? 

How many days will America Be Held Hostage by a President who is more concerned about amnesty and citizenship for illegal aliens than the safety and security of the American people? 

How many more millions of American citizens will be unemployed before Congress impeaches and the Senate convicts President Obama according to the process setforth in the United States Constitution? 

Employ American Citizens–No Amnesty For Illegal Aliens–Impeach and Convict Obama!

Senators Challenge Pres. Obama on Rumors of Amnesty Thorugh Executive Actions

“…Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation’s 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President asking for answers to questions about a plan that would allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can’t secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate. …” 

“…Here is the text of the letter signed by Sens. Grassley, Hatch (R-Utah), Vitter (R-La.), Bunning (R-Ky.), Chambliss (R-Ga.), Isakson (R-Ga.), Inhofe (R-Okla.), and Cochran (R-Miss.). 

Dear President Obama: 

We understand that there’s a push for your Administration to develop a plan to unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States. We understand that the Administration may include aliens who have willfully overstayed their visas or filed for benefits knowing that they will not be eligible for a status for years to come. We understand that deferred action and parole are discretionary actions reserved for individual cases that present unusual, emergent or humanitarian circumstances. Deferred action and parole were not intended to be used to confer a status or offer protection to large groups of illegal aliens, even if the agency claims that they look at each case on a “case-by-case” basis. 

While we agree our immigration laws need to be fixed, we are deeply concerned about the potential expansion of deferred action or parole for a large illegal alien population. While deferred action and parole are Executive Branch authorities, they should not be used to circumvent Congress’ constitutional authority to legislate immigration policy, particularly as it relates to the illegal population in the United States. 

The Administration would be wise to abandon any plans for deferred action or parole for the illegal population. Such a move would further erode the American public’s confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books. 

We would appreciate receiving a commitment that the Administration has no plans to use either authority to change the current position of a large group of illegal aliens already in the United States, and ask that you respond to us about this matter as soon as possible. …”

58% Say No to Citizenship for Children of Illegal Immigrants

“…Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say a child born to an illegal immigrant in this country should not automatically become a citizen of the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. 

Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree and say if a women enters the United States as an illegal alien and gives birth to a child here, that child should automatically be a U.S. citizen. That’s what the current law allows and many believe it would require a Constitutional Amendment to change the law. 

Voter sentiments are basically unchanged from four years ago when the Senate was considering the immigration issue. The Senate was eventually forced to drop its plans and surrender to public opinion on the topic. 

On another aspect of the debate, voters overwhelmingly oppose allowing illegal immigrants to be eligible for state and federal government benefits. Just nine percent (9%) say illegals should receive such benefits, but 85% say they should not. …”

Impeachment: The Unthinkable Process

“…Impeachable Offenses 

Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” In his report, Independent Counsel, Starr accuses President Clinton of committing eleven acts for which he could be removed from office by impeachment. Are any of those acts “Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors?” Well, that’s up to the members of the House of Representatives. According to Constitutional Lawyers, “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” are (1) real criminality — breaking a law; (2) abuses of power; (3) “violation of public trust” as defined by Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist Papers. In 1970, then Representative Gerald R. Ford defined impeachable offenses as “whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.” An excellent definition, Mr. Former President. In the past, Congress has issued Articles of Impeachment for acts in three general categories: 

  • Behavior grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office.
  • Employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain.

Robert Higgs–Crisis and Leviathan–Videos

Posted on June 23, 2010. Filed under: Blogroll, Communications, Crime, Culture, Economics, Education, Employment, Federal Government, Fiscal Policy, government, government spending, Law, liberty, Life, Links, Monetary Policy, People, Philosophy, Politics, Rants, Raves, Wisdom | Tags: , , , , , |

“We know that other great crises will come. Whether they will be occasioned by foreign wars, economic collapse, or rampant terrorism, no one can predict with assurance. Yet in one form or another, great crises will surely come again, as they have from time to time throughout all human history. When they do, governments almost certainly will gain new powers over economic and social affairs. Everything that I have argued and documented in the preceding chapters points toward this conclusion. For those who cherish individual liberty and a free society, the prospect is deeply disheartening.”

~Robert Higgs, Crisis and Leviathan: Critical Episodes in the Growth of American Government, page 262.

“An important, powerful, and profoundly disturbing book.”

~James M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate, in Journal of Economic History


“A blockbuster of a book, one of the most important of the last decade. It is that rare and wondrous combination: scholarly and hard-hitting, lucidly written and libertarian as well.”

~Murray N. Rothbard in Liberty


“A superb history. …Two hundred years after the establishment of the American Constitution, I can think of no more important reading than Mr. Higgs’ book, aside from the Constitution itself.”

~R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., Former Editor-in-Chief, The American Spectator

“…This seminal treatise in the history of ideas demonstrates what has come to be known as the Higgs thesis: that government grows in periods of crisis, for example, war and depression. He demonstrates this with a detailed look at twentieth century economic history.

Higgs’s thesis is so compelling that it has become the dominant paradigm for understanding the so-called ratchet effect: government grows during crisis and then retrenches afterwards, but not to the same level as before.

This book is absolutely essential for anyone who seeks to understand the dynamics of government growth and the loss of liberty. The contents of this volume include:

  • Part I. Framework
    • 1. The Sources of Big Government: A Critical Survey of Hypotheses
    • 2. How Much Has the Government Grown? Conventional Measures and an Alternative View
    • 3. On Ideology as an Analytical Concept in the Study of Political Economy
    • 4. Crisis, Bigger Government, and Ideological Change: Toward an Understanding of the Ratchet
  • Part II. History
    • 5. Crisis Under the Old Regime, 1893-1896
    • 6. The Progressive Era: A Bridge to Modern Times
    • 7. The Political Economy of War, 1916-1918

Robert Higgs on C-SPAN2′s Book TV, Part 3 of 3

“Since 1945, liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans have come into and out of power as the oscillations of a pendulum, but regardless of the political swings the fixed point has remained a fundamental abrogation of private economic rights. Constantly vulnerable to unsettling governmental intervention–whether wage-price controls, energy controls, labor-market controls, environmental controls, international trade controls, or any number of other intrusions into once-private economic affairs–the postwar economy has staggered forward. All shades of politicians have preferred the powers available to them in a mixed economy to the conceivable alternatives. Without the powerful ideological and constitutional restraints that operated for over a century after the birth of the United States–restraints destroyed during the national emergencies of 1916-1945–modern governmental authorities may think deeply and often from the heady wellsprings of political power and social control.”

Crisis and Leviathan: Observations amid the Current Episode

by Robert Higgs

“…Since the early twentieth century, periods of real or perceived national emergency have been “critical episodes” in the growth of government’s size, scope, and power in the United States and in many other countries. Hence, the concise conceptualization: Crisis and Leviathan (the main title of my 1987 book on the growth of government in the United States from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century).

In the past century, the first five such critical episodes in the United States were: World War I; the Great Depression; World War II; a multi-faceted set of crises associated with the civil-rights revolution and the Vietnam War, roughly coincident with the presidencies of Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon; and the post 9/11 events associated with the so-called War on Terror and the U.S. attacks on and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. We are now amid another such critical episode, which springs from the housing bust that began in 2006, the economic recession that began late in 2007, and the financial debacle that reached its climax in September 2008.

The current troubles are complex and raise a multitude of questions. Many books and articles no doubt will be written to analyze these various issues in scholarly depth and detail, and certainly anything we might say today must be regarded as preliminary, at best. I focus here on a few aspects of the present episode that relate closely to my own research on the growth of government, a field of study to which I have returned again and again over the past thirty years. …”

Crime, Inc.— The Movement Toward Global Government

“…Twenty years ago, when anyone talked about an agenda that would ultimately lead to a global government, people scoffed at the possibility, ascribing it as a “conspiracy theory.” For even longer than that, The John Birch Society has been warning us about such a threat to American sovereignty, and while they’ve acquired a following of their own, most of their warnings were unheeded. Now that the United States of America is on its way to becoming the United States of the World, people are starting to pay attention, but is it too late?

Over the past few months, Glenn Beck has also made clear his belief that not only is global government a possibility, but that the process of achieving it is near fruition if not stopped in its tracks. Ironically, just one year ago, Beck refused believe such a theory. In his 2009 book Common Sense, Beck wrote, “It’s not just the political class who has mastered the art of deception. There are other potentially deadly masters who will seek to exploit your frustration and sense of desperation. Many will warn you of government tyranny; they’ll talk of secret societies, vast conspiracies, shadow governments…. There is no global conspiracy playing out.” Within the past year for Beck, however, evidence to the contrary has become insurmountable. It is amazing, and terrifying, what a little bit of research can uncover.

Fortunately, Glenn Beck has been informing his audience about this global scheme, which he has named “Crime, Inc.” Every day, his viewers are left feeling overwhelmed and frightened by what they learn, not because he is a fearmonger, but because he allows the viewers to hear the truth right from the horses’ mouths.

Crime Inc. is centered around the Chicago Climate Exchange and involves major participants like Barack Obama, Joel Rogers (top organizer for the Progressive movement in the United States), Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Van Jones, Maurice Strong (head of the United Nations Environmental Program), Union Leader Andy Stearn, Anita Dunn (Senior Communications Strategist for Obama), and John Holdren (Advisor to Obama for Science and Technology). These are just to name a few. …”

Crime Inc.

by Chris Bounds on May 6, 2010

“…In short, you have The Joyce Foundation (Obama, Jarrett) , GIM (Al Gore, Goldman Sachs executives), and Goldman Sachs giving money to fund the CCX.  Then Franklin Raines with his patent on carbon trading technology and millions he siphoned through Fannie Mae, uses Enterprise Community Partners to funnel money from TJF to the ECC.  The ECC, whose goal is  the “rapidly greening of American’s cities” has Joel Rogers as a board member, who is connected to Barak Obama and the White House.

What does Joel Rogers have to do with all of this?  Well, Joel Rogers may very well be the ‘Wizard’ behind the entire modern progressive movement.   He is the Director of the Center of Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) Director, a progressive think tank.  He founded the New Party (a Marxist coalition that endorsed Barak Obama in 1996, since reorganized under the Working Families Party, a front for ACORN) and the Apollo Alliance.  He has been claimed to be responsible for every policy decision in the White House.  Watch what Van Jones (self-proclaimed communist, former Green Czar for Obama), Barak Obama, and even Joel Rogers himself have to say: …”

Synopsis

“…David Kilcullen is one of the world’s most influential experts on counterinsurgency and modern warfare. A Senior Counterinsurgency Advisor to General David Petraeus in Iraq, his vision of war dramatically influenced America’s decision to rethink its military strategy in Iraq and implement “the surge.”

Now, in The Accidental Guerrilla, Kilcullen provides a remarkably fresh perspective on the War on Terror. Kilcullen takes us “on the ground” to uncover the face of modern warfare, illuminating both the big global war (the “War on Terrorism”) and its relation to the associated “small wars” across the globe: Iraq, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Chechnya, Pakistan and North Africa. Kilcullen sees today’s conflicts as a complex pairing of contrasting trends: local social networks and worldwide movements; traditional and postmodern culture; local insurgencies seeking autonomy and a broader pan-Islamic campaign. He warns that America’s actions in the war on terrorism have tended to conflate these trends, blurring the distinction between local and global struggles and thus enormously complicating our challenges. Indeed, the US had done a poor job of applying different tactics to these very different situations, continually misidentifying insurgents with limited aims and legitimate grievances (whom he calls “accidental guerrillas”) as part of a coordinated worldwide terror network. We must learn how to disentangle these strands, develop strategies that deal with global threats, avoid local conflicts where possible, and win them where necessary.

Colored with gripping battlefield experiences that range from the jungles and highlands of Southeast Asiato the mountains of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border to the dusty towns of the Middle East, The Accidental Guerrilla will, quite simply, change the way we think about war. This much anticipated book will be a must read for everyone concerned about the war on terror. …”

Background Articles and Videos

David Kilcullen

“…David Kilcullen (born 1967) is an author and a consultant on counterinsurgency and counterterrorism. A former Australian Army officer, he left that army as a lieutenant colonel in 2005 and now works for the United States State Department. During 2007 he served in Iraq as Senior Counterinsurgency Adviser, Multi-National Force – Iraq — a civilian position on the personal staff of U.S. Army General David Petraeus, responsible for planning and executing the 2007-08 Joint Campaign Plan which drove the Iraq War troop surge of 2007.

Kilcullen is also an advisor to the United States; British and Australian governments; the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and several private sector institutions (including the Australian-based Noetic Corporation), on counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency issues. A former Senior Fellow of the Center for a New American Security, he is now on the CNAS’s Advisory Board.[1]

Biography

Kilcullen has a doctorate in politics from the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy, focusing on the effects of guerrilla warfare on non-state political systems in traditional societies. His thesis is titled “The political consequences of military operations in Indonesia 1945-99: a fieldwork analysis of the political power-diffusion effects of guerilla conflict”. He applied ethnographic fieldwork methods and involved extended residential fieldwork that focused on the political power-diffusion effects of successful and failed counter-insurgency operations on traditional societies in Indonesia and East Timor. He has served in several counterinsurgency and guerrilla warfare campaigns in Southeast Asia and the Middle East — including tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan — as well as in peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations.

While at the US State Department in 2005-06 he served as Chief Strategist in the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism, and has worked in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and Southeast Asia. He has also written several papers on the Iraqi insurgency after the fall of Saddam Hussein.[citation needed]

He is one of a group of civilian specialists and military officers, including Colonel H.R. McMaster and others, who were seconded in late 2006 to the personal staff of General Petraeus to oversee the specialized counterinsurgency aspects of the Iraq campaign in 2007.[2] He previously contributed to the new United States Counterinsurgency Field Manual FM 3-24, published in December 2006, of which he authored a chapter entitled “A Guide to Action”. His book The Accidental Guerrilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One was published in early 2009. (See External Links.) …”

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties have always used war to expand the state and limit liberty.

The time has come to bring all the troops home from around the world.

The people of  the world including Germany,  Japan, and South Korea can defend their own nations.

Bring the troops home now.

Start with General Stan McChrystal and the troops in Afghanistan.

Obama: U.S. security is still at stake

AFGHAN WAR TO ESCALATE
30,000 more troops; pullout begins mid-2011

“…Adding 30,000 U.S. troops to the roughly 70,000 that are in Afghanistan now amounts to most of what Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces there, requested at the end of August. But by setting a date for when he will begin removing U.S. troops, scheduled to number about 100,000 by next summer, Obama is effectively holding McChrystal to the urgent timeline that the general laid out in a bleak assessment of the situation.

Obama’s simultaneous escalation of the war effort and presentation of an exit plan reflects the divisions that emerged within his administration during the strategy review and the difficult politics he faces in selling his plan at home and abroad. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and other senior officials who participated in that review, sometimes in opposition to one another, watched his speech from the front row of the academy’s Eisenhower Hall.

As details of his strategy emerged Tuesday, some Republicans accused Obama of aiding the Taliban insurgency by setting a date to begin a withdrawal, even though administration officials said the pace will be determined by the country’s security and political stability. Democrats criticized Obama for an expensive, if time-limited, expansion of an unpopular conflict at a time of economic hardship at home. …”

Niall Ferguson: Don’t Trust Democrats to Fix Economy

Niall Ferguson 

“…Niall Campbell Douglas Ferguson (born April 18, 1964, in Glasgow)[1] is a British historian who specialises in financial and economic history as well as the history of colonialism. He is the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History at Harvard University[2] and the William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. He was educated at the private Glasgow Academy in Scotland, and at Magdalen College, Oxford.

He is best known outside academia for his revisionist views rehabilitating imperialism and colonialism; within academia, his championing of counterfactual history is a subject of some considerable controversy[citation needed]. In 2008, Ferguson published his most recent book, The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World[3] which he also presented as a Channel 4 television series. At Harvard College, Ferguson teaches a popular undergraduate class entitled “Western Ascendancy: The Mainsprings of Global Power from 1600 to the Present.” …”

More and more Americans have noticed that President Barack Obama is a habitual serial liar.

Once Americans realize this, most Americans will neither believe what he says in the future nor trust him.

They quickly lose all respect for Barack Obama.

Lose respect.

Lose the game.

Barack Obama will either be voted out of office in 2012 or impeached and be convicted in 2011.

The American people are counting the days.

Barack Obama Is A Traitor To The United States Of America

 

News Update: Federal Judge Lifts Obama’s Drilling Moratorium (BP,HOS)

 

 

Judge block Gulf offshore drilling moratorium
“A federal judge in New Orleans has blocked a six-month moratorium on new deepwater drilling projects that was imposed in response to the massive Gulf oil spill. …”

“…Feldman says in his ruling that the Interior Department failed to provide adequate reasoning for the moratorium. He says it seems to assume that because one rig failed, all companies and rigs doing deepwater drilling pose an imminent danger. …”

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gIXWYBTpLtSayJtg41LKXpxSxVPAD9GGFHKG0

Judge Martin Feldman Overturns Deep Water Drilling Ban

“…The judge granted a preliminary injunction, calling the government’s decision “arbitrary” and not in the public interest.

Those who wanted the ban lifted included Governor Bobby Jindal, the oil industry in Louisiana, and many citizens of the state who depend on the high paying jobs from the drilling industry provides.

Big Oil strikes back, slams Obama’s drilling ban

“…Obama slapped a six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf as part of his struggle to show that his administration is responding forcefully to the disaster. The decision halted the approval of any new permits for deepwater drilling and suspended drilling at 33 existing exploratory wells in the Gulf.

The ban, which is being contested in a U.S. court, reflects growing unease about oil companies seeking to drill farther out to sea and deeper than ever before. The process is expensive, risky and largely uncharted — but the industry argues it is also necessary in a world where land and shallow water oil supplies are running out. …”

“The sovereign extends its arms about the society as a whole; it covers its surface with a network of petty regulations—complicated, minute, and uniform—through which even the most original minds and the most vigorous souls know not how to make their way… it does not break wills; it softens them, bends them, and directs them; rarely does it force one to act, but it constantly opposes itself to one’s acting on one’s own … it does not tyrannize, it gets in the way: it curtails, it enervates, it extinguishes, it stupefies, and finally reduces each nation to being nothing more than a herd of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”

 ~Alexis de Tocqueville

“Every device employed to bolster individual freedom must have as its chief purpose the impairment of the absoluteness of power. The indications are that such an impairment is brought about not by strengthening the individual and pitting him against the possessors of power, but by distributing and diversifying power and pitting one category or unit of power against the other. Where power is one, the defeated individual, however strong and resourceful, can have no refuge and no recourse .”

We’re All Fascists Now II: American Tyranny

Michael Ledeen

“…The tyranny he foresees for us does not have much in common with the vicious dictatorships of the last century, or with contemporary North Korea, Iran, or Saudi Arabia.  He apologizes for lacking the proper words with which to define it.  He hesitates to call it either tyranny or despotism, because it does not rule by terror or oppression.  There are no secret police, no concentration camps, and no torture.  “The nature of despotic power in democratic ages is not to be fierce or cruel, but minute and meddling.”  The vision and even the language anticipate Orwell’s 1984, or Huxley’s Brave New World. Tocqueville describes the new tyranny as “an immense and tutelary power,” and its task is to watch over us all, and regulate every aspect of our lives.

It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd.

We will not be bludgeoned into submission; we will be seduced.  He foresees the collapse of American democracy as the end result of two parallel developments that ultimately render us meekly subservient to an enlarged bureaucratic power: the corruption of our character, and the emergence of a vast welfare state that manages all the details of our lives.  His words are precisely the ones that best describe out current crisis:

That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident and mild.  It would be like the authority of a parent if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks, on the contrary, to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing.  For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances: what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living? …”

http://pajamasmedia.com/michaelledeen/2009/02/14/were-all-fascists-now-ii-american-tyranny/

Soft Despotism

“…Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by “a network of small complicated rules” might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called ‘hard despotism’) in the sense that it is not obvious to the people. Soft despotism gives people the illusion that they are in control, when in fact they have very little influence over their government. Soft despotism breeds fear, uncertainty, and doubt in the general populace. Alexis de Tocqueville observed that this trend was avoided in America only by the “habits of the heart” of its 19th-century populace.

Dr. Samuel Gregg of The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty (a religious[1] institute), explains:

In Democracy in America, Tocqueville suggested that democracy was capable of breeding its own form of despotism, albeit one without the edges of Jacobin or Bonapartist dictatorship with which Europeans were all too familiar. The book spoke of “an immense protective power” which took all responsibility for everyone’s happiness-just so long as this power remained “sole agent and judge of it.” This power, Tocqueville wrote, would “resemble parental authority” but would try to keep people “in perpetual childhood” by relieving people “from all the trouble of thinking and all the cares of living.”

Such circumstances might arise, Tocqueville noted, if democracy’s progress was accompanied by demands for a leveling of social conditions. The danger was that an obsession with equality was very compatible with increasingly centralized state-power. Leveling social conditions, Tocqueville observed, usually involved using the state to subvert those intermediate associations that reflected social differences, but also limited government-power.

Tocqueville’s vision of “soft-despotism” is thus one of arrangements that mutually corrupt citizens and the democratic state. Citizens vote for those politicians who promise to use the state to give them whatever they want. The political-class delivers, so long as citizens do whatever it says is necessary to provide for everyone’s desires. The “softness” of this despotism consists of people’s voluntary surrender of their liberty and their tendency to look habitually to the state for their needs.[2]

In Volume II, Book 4, Chapter 6 of Democracy in America, de Tocqueville writes the following about soft despotism:

Thus, After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.

I have always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet, and gentle kind which I have just described might be combined more easily than is commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom, and that it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people.

Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting passions: they want to be led, and they wish to remain free. As they cannot destroy either the one or the other of these contrary propensities, they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty; this gives them a respite: they console themselves for being in tutelage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man allows himself to be put in leading-strings, because he sees that it is not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large who hold the end of his chain.

By this system the people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master and then relapse into it again. A great many persons at the present day are quite contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered it to the power of the nation at large. This does not satisfy me: the nature of him I am to obey signifies less to me than the fact of extorted obedience. I do not deny, however, that a constitution of this kind appears to me to be infinitely preferable to one which, after having concentrated all the powers of government, should vest them in the hands of an irresponsible person or body of persons. Of all the forms that democratic despotism could assume, the latter would assuredly be the worst. [3] …”

President Obama’s response to the oil spill is to again push for an energy tax that would increase the cost of electricity, heating oil and gasoline to the American people as well as the cost of all goods and services that need electricity, heating oil and gasoline for their manufacture and distribution.

The cap and trade energy tax under a new name would destroy more jobs, wreck the U.S. economy and kill the American dream.

President Obama and the progressive radical socialists in Congress and the Senate are attempting to shakedown the American people with a new energy tax that impacts all Americans.

While this is being proposed, Obama is rewarding the financial contributions and support of George Soros and his friends and allies.

Beck breakdowns the crime and corruption of Crime Inc., the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization of the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party led by President Barack Obama.

The actions of Obama and his corrupt cronies are bordering on an impeachable offense for high crimes.

Assuming the Republicans take the House of Representatives in November, Congressional hearings and a special procecutor appear completely warranted.

Both the timing of the Soros investment in Petrobras and the Export-Import Bank loans to the company together with the six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling needs to be throughly investigated.

Obama past political assistance to real estate investor and developer, Tony Rezko, looks strikingly similiar to his political assistance to hedge fund investor George Soros.

The Right Reasons

“…Within 48 hours after President Obama issued the six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling, the George Soros-backed Brazilian oil company, Petrobras, contacted a large New Orleans company, Laborde Marine, which services the deep-water drilling market. The company was seeking to lease all its vessels. “If the moratorium on deep-water drilling is not lifted, 33 semi-submersible rigs and/or drill ships affected will simply go to other countries where they will be well received, such as Brazil,” Cliffe F. Laborde and J. Peter Laborde, Jr. wrote in a June 4 letter to their Louisiana Senators.

Could this be merely a happy coincidence for George Soros, the major financial backer of Obama’s presidential campaign who also has $811 million invested in the Brazilian oil company, Petrobras? Wasn’t it enough of a payback to Soros when the Obama Administration loaned up to $10 billion to Petrobras? Soros, with his far left-wing organization, MoveOn, is called the Godfather of world socialism. But most relevant currently is that he has been an enthusiastic proponent of global warming and environmental liberalism. He has urged adoption of a global carbon tax. Could it be more than coincidence that his position is strikingly similar to what Obama called for in his June 14 Oval Office speech on the Gulf oil spill and future energy actions? …”

Soros reports 73.5% increase in Petrobras stake

By Tony Cooke

“…Billionaire investor George Soros on Tuesday reported that during the fourth quarter he increased his already considerable stakes in Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. /quotes/comstock/13*!pbr/quotes/nls/pbr (PBR 37.99, -0.68, -1.75%) and Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!pot/quotes/nls/pot (POT 98.50, -0.09, -0.09%) .

Soros, through his Soros Fund Management LLC, reported holding 36.8 million American depositary receipts of the Brazilian oil company known as Petrobras as of Dec. 31 – a holding valued at about $900 million at the time. Soros held 21.2 million ADRs at Sept. 30, according to his disclosure filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Soros also reported holding $434 million in Potash shares as of Dec. 31 – a total of about 5.9 million shares. He reported holding 3.3 million Potash shares as of Sept. 30.

Petrobras and Potash were the two largest stakes reported by the Soros fund as of Dec. 30. …”

OFF-SHORE OIL-DRILLING, OBAMA, SOROS, PETROBRAS: CONNECTING THE DOTS

“…The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees. Either way, this corporate foreign aid may strike some readers as odd, given that the U.S. Treasury seems desperate for cash and Petrobras is one of the largest corporations in the Americas. …”

Petrobras May Borrow $5 Billion From U.S. Ex-Im Bank (Update2)

“…July 30 (Bloomberg) — Petroleo Brasileiro SA said it may more than double its borrowings from the U.S. Export-Import Bank to as much as $5 billion, following a $10 billion loan from China.

Petrobras, as the state-controlled oil company is known, may increase the loans from $2 billion now, Chief Financial Officer Almir Barbassa said today at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro. The initial loan made in April was an “opening amount,” Fred Hochberg, president of the U.S. bank, said earlier today in an interview in Rio.

“The Export-Import Bank met yesterday with Petrobras, and it offered more resources to the company,” Brazilian Energy Minister Edison Lobao said at the press conference.

Investment in Brazil’s oil industry is expected to surge to more than $200 billion over the next five years, buoyed by spending on the Americas’ largest oil find since 1976. Petrobras in February secured $10 billion in financing from the China Development Bank Corp.

China replaced the U.S. as Brazil’s biggest trading partner this year, after the global recession choked sales to the U.S. The Chinese bank, which plans to open an office in Rio de Janeiro next year, has also agreed to lend $800 million to Brazil’s state development bank, known as BNDES.

The U.S. and Chinese loans will help Petrobras pay for part of its $174 billion, five-year investment plan to expand output. …”

Shakedown

“Shakedown” is a 1987 single by Bob Seger that is from the soundtrack of the film Beverly Hills Cop II. The music was written by Harold Faltermeyer, who wrote the score for the film, and Keith Forsey, and the lyrics by Seger.

The music video featured scenes from the film intercut with Seger and the band performing it, with some members approaching glam metal moves. “Shakedown” became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, Seger’s only such top mark singles-wise, as well as the Album Rock Tracks chart, where it became his second number-one hit, spending four weeks at the top.

Cover versions by an uncredited artist appeared in two episodes of the animated series Captain N: The Game Master. However, due to legal issues, these songs have been edited out of the DVD releases of the show. …”
