Why Obama is ready to destroy this country
this is the best article written since that duplicitous weasel got the nomination.
Inside Today's Bulletin
America's First Socialist President
By James G. Wiles, For The Bulletin
This was the week when it finally hit most thinking Americans that the United States may be about to elect its first Marxist president. If you don't like the stock market and the economy now, just wait until this nightmare - the a Marxist president and a Democratic Congress taking power in Washington - comes to pass.
How did we get here? More importantly, how did the party of Harry Truman, FDR, Woodrow Wilson and Jack Kennedy succumb to a Manchurian Candidate?
First, of course, the Obama campaign and its media sycophants fought hard to hide the truth. It has only been through the dogged work of the National Review's Stanley Kurtz and Andy McCarthy (available online at nationalreview.com), David Freddoso "The Case Against Barack Obama" and, this week, Larry Johnson of noquarterusa.net and John Hinderaker at Powerline, that the reality that Barack Obama is not only the product of a Marxist milieu but is a Marxist himself has finally broken through. Consider these facts:
* One of Mr. Obama's childhood mentors in Hawaii was a former organizer for the Communist Party USA
* By his own account, in college, Mr. Obama was drawn to a career as a community organizer by the writings of Saul Alinsky, a known Marxist
* Besides the Gamaliel Foundation, one of the community groups in Chicago that Mr. Obama worked for was ACORN, a Marxist organization targeting voting registration for low-income and minority Americans and which is now under investigation for vote fraud in 11 states
* When Mr. Obama ran for the state Senate from Chicago, he sought and obtained the endorsement of the Chicago New Party, established by the Democratic Socialists of America, including passing a screening for ideological purity
* He attended and spoke at Socialist Party conferences and events
* Mr. Obama's first electoral run was sponsored by Alice Palmer, a regular attendee of meetings of the CPUSA and whose state senate seat Obama ran for in the mid-'90s
* The famous coffee at the home of William Ayres and Bernadette Dohrn to launch Mr. Obama's candidacy was simply a gathering of Marxist activists and politicians at which the CPUSA-affiliated state Sen. Alice Palmer spoke;
* At the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Mr. Obama and Mr. Ayres together administered a $100 million grant program designed by Mr. Ayres and other Marxists to politicize and radicalize school children.
Against this background, Mr. Obama's opposition to the Vietnam War, his negative view of the United States and his membership in a "black liberation theology" church that preached race hatred and anti-Americanism becomes immediately understandable; and so do Mr. Obama's close ties to anti-Israeli leaders like Louis Farakkhan and Rashid Khalidi or convicted fraudster and Syrian immigrant Tony Rezko.
All of these folks, as Thomas Sowell has written here, were not "associates" of the young Barack Obama. They were his allies, sponsors and mentors. It was this network of alliances that launched and sustained the Manchurian Candidate on his political career.
Not least among the obfuscations are the way Marxists such as Katrina Vandenheuvel of The Nation identify themselves as "progressives." This, of course, recalls how the Marxist supporters of Henry Wallace in 1948 called themselves "Democrats in a hurry."
Second, the filtering devices that the Democratic Party once contained to identify and drive out Communists and Socialists no longer exist. A young Democrat named Ronald Reagan once got his start in politics by leading a successful fight to prevent a Communist takeover of the Screen Actors Guild. That wouldn't happen today. In the GOP, we're alert for Nazis, fascists and white supremacists. On the Democratic side, unfortunately, Americans for Democratic Action and the labor union movement no longer weed out Marxists.
Last, perhaps the ability to spot Marxism on the part of the average American has decayed. The Soviet Union, of course, is gone. China is authoritarian but capitalist. As long as you don't start spouting off about "the workers," "the masses," the "means of production" - in other words, if you take care not to sound like The Nation magazine, you get a pass.
One day in 1992, my then-82 year old father and I were watching a Ross Perot event. "You know, Jim," dad said, "that guy's a fascist." And so he was. But it took someone who had seen fascism to recognize it in American clothes.
The strong probability that Mr. Obama is a Marxist frees anyone voting for Sen. John McCain from a charge of racism. If patriotism and simple love of country aren't a sufficient explanation for your GOP vote, the person you're talking with isn't worth listening to. Somebody should ask Senator Mr. Obama if he's a socialist and, if not, why did the DSA's Chicago New Party claim him as a member in their October, 1996 newsletter.

Well, let's see...
I was born into a family of longstanding Republicans.
My hero as a child was Theodore Roosevelt.
I was an enthusiastic reader of Ayn Rand as a teenager.
A lot of my firends have been conservatives.
I work for Accenture in a field that was developed by the US military.
But I am a marxist. Go figure!
I will vote for Obama even though he is decidedly *not* a marxist.
I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.

Briefly, Ronald Reagan had come to Los Angeles in 1937 to make motion pictures. In 1940, MCA bought out the talent agency that represented Reagan; Lew Wasserman, a rising star in MCA, became Reagan's personal agent, negotiating a million-dollar contract with Warner Brothers on Reagan's behalf. In 1946, Wasserman became the president of MCA, and the following year, Reagan, with his film career already in decline, became the president of the Screen Actors Guild.
A sweetheart relationship developed between MCA and SAG, which culminated in July 1952 during Reagan's fifth consecutive term as SAG's president. Reagan and Laurence Beilenson--an attorney for MCA who had previously served as SAG's general counsel and represented Reagan in his 1949 divorce from actress Jane Wyman--negotiated an exclusive blanket waiver from SAG that permitted MCA to engage in unlimited film production. The agreement violated SAG's bylaws, which prohibited talent agents from employing their own clients. At the time, no other talent agency could receive a similar arrangement.
A Justice Department memorandum in Robb's FOIA cache indicated that the waiver became "the central fact of MCA's whole rise to power."
At the end of Reagan's fifth term as SAG president, he began to have serious financial problems, particularly with the IRS. MCA negotiated a deal with the Last Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas, which was owned and operated by associates of the Chicago Outfit, for Reagan to host a song-and-dance show for two weeks and to receive enough money to cover his back-tax debt.
When Reagan returned to Hollywood, MCA, through its newly-formed film company, Revue Productions, selected him to host its flagship television program, the General Electric Theater for $125,000 a year. He was paid additional fees when he produced episodes for the series.
Despite his status as a television producer, Reagan remained on SAG's board of directors in another violation of the guild's bylaws, which prohibited producers from holding office in actors' guild. In 1959, when Reagan ran for an unprecedented sixth term as SAG's president, his opponents raised the bylaws issue. However, Reagan denied, on the record, that he had ever produced any episodes for the General Electric Theater, which was an outright lie.
In fact, Wasserman had encouraged Reagan to seek his sixth term. MCA was facing sensitive negotiations with SAG over residual television and motion-picture rights for actors. The issue eventually forced SAG to strike in 1960, and Reagan, as president, became the actors' chief negotiator.
The contract that Reagan arranged with the studios is still known in Hollywood as "The Great Giveaway." It did provide residuals for actors--but only for films made after 1960; the studios kept everything before 1960, which was worth billions of dollars. This greatly benefited MCA, which had recently purchased Paramount Pictures's huge film library in 1959. (Later, the president of IATSE during the 1960 SAG strike told me that labor lawyer and Mafia mouthpiece Sidney Korshak, a close friend of Lew Wasserman, was directly involved in the negotiations with Reagan.)
In 1962, the Justice Department filed a federal antitrust suit against MCA, alleging that it was both a talent agency and a production company; SAG was charged as a coconspirator. Reagan became the subject of both criminal and civil investigations by the FBI and a federal grand jury in Los Angeles. A Justice Department memorandum quoted a Hollywood source as saying, "Ronald Reagan is a complete slave of MCA who would do their bidding on anything."
Reagan was subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury, but he experienced amnesia during his testimony on February 5, 1962, failing to recall details of his role in the SAG-MCA blanket-waiver decision in 1952. Federal prosecutors were so convinced that Reagan had perjured himself repeatedly during his testimony that they subpoenaed his and his wife's federal income-tax returns for the years 1952 to 1955. His wife, actress Nancy Reagan, had been a member of the SAG board of directors since 1951.
However, in July 1962--in the aftermath of MCA's purchase of Decca Records, the parent company of Universal Pictures--MCA agreed to abolish its talent agency as part of a consent decree with the Kennedy Justice Department. As a result, all charges against and investigations of the company and its alleged coconspirators were dropped, and the record of the case was sealed. Meantime, Universal quickly became the biggest film producer in the entertainment industry.
Claiming that he was deeply affected by the breakup of MCA--which, in fact, had turned the company into an even more powerful multi-billion-dollar international corporation--Reagan, supposedly a lifelong Democrat, became an anti-big government Republican, just like his political mentors at MCA: board chair Jules Stein and vice president Taft Schreiber, both of whom were active in Republican Party politics.
In return for Reagan's long-time loyalty to his benefactors, MCA, through its cooperation in selling Reagan's Malibu properties, helped Reagan to become a multi-millionaire--and, then, the governor of California.Merde De Glace On the Freak When Ski

It's not like the republicans did a great job when they had complete control of the federal gov't from '01-'06. Not sure I am thrilled with the dems having majority in both houses and the executive branch. But the GOP only has to look at it self in the mirror to point the finger of blame.

mrw: you couldn't even imagine what america would look like if there actually was a marxist in contention for the presidency.
i guess the big wall street donors who've backed obama are just sleeper commies...and barak's fealty to their wishes is just a thinly veiled act
actually, it's your buddies who run the current government who've socialized (sort of) the banks and the financial sector...damn commies
and anyway, commies as the boogeymen of the establishment is so cold war.

the fvcktards that post or write the laughably misleading crap ('obama = marxist') amuse us all now, sure....it makes the poster look stupid, and that's always amusing.
but let's think of the long-term possibilities for hilarity here, too.
it's now looking increasingly likely that obama will be prez.
after a year or two, the fvcktards will start to realize that obama is not a baby-killing, tax-the-middle-class, marxist, closet muslim, etc. i mean even the stupid people who watch fox news will figure this out, given enough time.
so at that point, when pretty much everyone w/ a double digit IQ realizes that obama is just another moderate democrat, with more eloquence, we can dredge up this histrionic threads by mrw et alia and laugh some more.
this shit is gold. Marxist? yeah. :roll: O and his close buddy Warren Buffett sit around and discuss how they're going to turn the country marxist.
