Subject: BS: Is Obama a Fascist?
From: Songwronger
Date: 02 Apr 13 - 10:56 PM

I concede up front that George W. Bush was/is a fascist. I contend that Obama is also a fascist.

Fascism, n.: A political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government (as opposed to democracy or liberalism).

*****

Writing back in 2007, Naomi Wolfe catalogued the steps to creating a dictatorship (which she sought to apply to George W. Bush). Interestingly enough, they apply far more to the man who replaced him.
Wolfe's steps include:

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
2. Create a gulag
3. Develop a thug caste
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
5. Harass citizens' groups
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
8. Control the press
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law

http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/01/obamas_fascist_america_in_10_easy_steps.html

This piece is by the left/liberal's beloved Naomi Wolf. She was writing about what George W. Bush had done. I don't follow Naomi Wolf. Has her so-called reportage been updated to include Obama's abuses?

Or rather, this is the link to Naomi Wolf's 2007 article about Bush.

The link in the first posting is to a commentary about Wolf's piece.

Both Bush and Obama fit Wolf's definition of fascist.

I approve. Obama is indeed a Fascist. Now everyone will be subject to scrutiny by the IRS thanks to Obamacare.
People who wanted to work part time and go uninsured will be forced ( at the point of a gun if you refuse to buy health insurance or pay the fine ) to go full time.
Except those full time jobs are gone with the wind. You musicians that have always worked for cash and cheated on your taxes for decades are going to have to account to Prez al-Obama.
I think alot of the Mudcatters are on Medicare and Social Security.Since they won't be forced to buy anything they are ok with it.
It's not affecting them, so why should they care?
Obama is so much like Reagan it's scary.
Reagan dreamed of Star Wars technology.
Obama has it.

Good points.

Obamacare goes FAR beyond mere health insurance. It even addresses gold ownership. And the IRS will be the enforcer. The arm breakers, ironically enough.

Obamacare is the most fascist piece of legislation I've ever seen in America. It forces Americans to buy insurance (yes, at the point of a gun) from private insurance companies. Textbook fascism.

Okay, I confess! I know the whole scam!

But Songwronger hasn't got it quite right, so here's the scoop:

Remember that UFO that went down in New Mexico some decades back? The bodies that were recovered? And how the Air Force tried so desperately to cover up the whole incident, claiming it was nothing but a weather balloon that had blown off course?

I have it on good authoriy that Barack Obama (by whatever name) was cloned from alien tissue and grew up in Hangar 51 where his positronic brain was programmed by subspace transmissions from Phltzlfroomp, the fourth planet of Wolf 359.

And what is his mission, you may ask? Rather than national and international implications, his real mission is of interplanetary importance. It has to do with the life-threatening shortage on the home planet of the Phltzlfroompians of orange Jell-O embedded with miniature marshmallows. Without this, all civilization would collapse in the same way that our economy, and then our civilzation, would collapse if we suddenly ran out of oil, gas, beer, and Big Macs simultaneously.

Once the plans have reached fruition (so to speak) and Obama (by whatever name) has laid the groundwork, little green men will land, storm all gatherings of church luncheons put on by the the Lutheran Ladies' Guilds, and make off with all the Jell-O salads.

If you think that's horrifying, the aliens are planning to assault the Southern Baptist Leadership Conference by replacing all the water in their baptismal fonts with Wild Turkey studded with real, live wild turkeys! And they think that's funny!!

Oh, the horror of it all!!

It is good that you tremble for the future of our planet!

Yes, the name calling and conspiracy accusations will be flowing freely on this one. But why? The fascism is so in-your-face.

I'll go into the two articles point by point I guess, later. Time for you Obamanoids to fess up to what you've brought on the country.

Pop quiz:

There are a couple of different political systems that go by the name of "Fascism," and most people who go around labelling this person or that system as "Fascist" not only don't know the distinctions, but they don't even know where the name came from.

Contrary to popular belief, Nazi Germany was not really a "Fascist" country.

Anybody tell me the distinctions? (And, yes, I know, but does anybody else out there, especially those who like to toss the word around?)

"by the way, to get this piece of crap passed, this bill is being very quietly slipped into the Democratic Budget Proposal

Now I know I ruffle some feathers, of the phony left from the bogus notion that today's 'so-called liberals' are not really wolves, in sheep's clothing, and really are more fascist than they would ever admit....but:


Those who say he is not a fascist please explain this........Don??? "

This is just horseshit.

If Obama were a fascist, he would be able to get stuff done which he has been blocked from by the obfuscatrial a-holes in the Repub sector. Why, he would have taken all your guns by now and forced you all to marry lesbians who smoke pot and provide abortions, and much, much more! That proves he's not a fascist. Surely you can see that?

CNN reported this morning that 13% of Americans believe that O is the Antichrist, with 13% more not quite sure.

But 15% think the moon landings were a hoax, and 12% think the Government places "secret mind-control technology" in radio and TV broadcasts to keep the masses in their place.

Of course, it's always more fun to say you believe this stuff than that you don't, so perhaps only about 1 in every 20 or 25 American adults think O is the Antichrist instead of 1 in 9.

I agree about the "'mind-control technology' in radio and TV broadcasts to keep the masses in their place", but it's not really secret and it's not put there by the government. It's called "advertising", and it seeks to keep the masses in big box retail stores, fast food restaurants, and auto dealers' showrooms.

I see that no one has come up with answers to my little quiz yet. What does the word "Fascist" mean, why was Hitler not precisely a fascist, who invented the term, and what is it derived from?

< Forrest Gump >"My mama always told me, 'Don't use a word if you don't know what it means.'" < /Forrest Gump >

I'll supply the answers a bit later. But for now:

* * *

A couple two or three years ago, there was a person here who billed himself as "ichMael," pretty much a take-off on the opening line of Moby Dick, "Call me Ishmael." Probably also just moving the "M" in "Michael" in three spaces. Cute.

Anyway, this "ichMael" posted vast quantities of really vicious anti-Obama propaganda, much of which was of the rankest sort. He would even link people to a web site that apparently he had started called "The Mudcat Pages." This web site proclaimed that Obama was not born in the United States, he was born in Kenya, he was a Muslim, that his father had dozens of wives, that Obama's mother was a "whore," and just about anything else he could think of to denigrate President Obama and his family, including a photograph showing a skinny man in a dancer's leotard hugging another man. Whoever the skinny man was, he had Obama's head crudely Photoshopped on top of his body (bad job; anybody with his head at that angle from his body is going to have serious neck problems). This, of course, was alleged to be incontrovertible proof that Obama is gay.

This "ichMael" was a real nut-case!

Then, he went away.

Now, I can't be absolutely sure, but I have a strong suspicion that he's back! Only now, he's calling himself "Songwronger."

The verbiage, the writing "style," and the subject matter are all exactly the same.

I am reminded of the outpourings of a group that calls itself "The Aryan Brotherhood of Texas."

No kidding!! There IS such a group, believe it or not!

Fasces, Latin, a bundle of sticks tied together. Fascism, a governmental model based onf radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in mid-20th century Europe. Fascists seek to unify their nation through a totalitarian state that promotes the mass mobilization of the national community,relying on a vanguard party to initiate a revolution to organize the nation on fascist principles. Most modern definitions include Hitler as well as Mussolini and Franco in their examples of fascism and describe it in opposition and contradistinction to communism and some other socialistic models. Benito Mussolini, the leader of the Fascist government of Italy, described it as follows:

"Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace. It thus repudiates the doctrine of Pacifism -- born of a renunciation of the struggle and an act of cowardice in the face of sacrifice. War alone brings up to its highest tension all human energy and puts the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have courage to meet it. All other trials are substitutes, which never really put men into the position where they have to make the great decision -- the alternative of life or death....

...The Fascist accepts life and loves it, knowing nothing of and despising suicide: he rather conceives of life as duty and struggle and conquest, but above all for others -- those who are at hand and those who are far distant, contemporaries, and those who will come after...

...Fascism [is] the complete opposite of…Marxian Socialism, the materialist conception of history of human civilization can be explained simply through the conflict of interests among the various social groups and by the change and development in the means and instruments of production.... Fascism, now and always, believes in holiness and in heroism; that is to say, in actions influenced by no economic motive, direct or indirect. And if the economic conception of history be denied, according to which theory men are no more than puppets, carried to and fro by the waves of chance, while the real directing forces are quite out of their control, it follows that the existence of an unchangeable and unchanging class-war is also denied - the natural progeny of the economic conception of history. And above all Fascism denies that class-war can be the preponderant force in the transformation of society...."

I'm not a gay Aryan, and I posted the working definition of fascism in the original post. Fascism, n.: A political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government (as opposed to democracy or liberalism). That's the one I've been using since the first post.

Here's proof of fascism from #8 in the original post. "Control the Press."

Reading News Online A Criminal Offence?

During his first term, President Barack Obama declared October 2009 to be "National Information Literacy Awareness Month," emphasizing that, for students, learning to navigate the online world is as important a skill as reading, writing and arithmetic. It was a move that echoed his predecessor's strong support of global literacy—such as reading newspapers—most notably through First Lady Laura Bush's advocacy.

Yet, disturbingly, the Departments of Justice (DOJ) of both the Bush and Obama administrations have embraced an expansive interpretation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) that would literally make it a crime for many kids to read the news online. And it's the main reason why the law must be reformed.

As we've explained previously, in multiple cases the DOJ has taken the position that a violation of a website's Terms of Service or an employer's Terms of Use policy can be treated as a criminal act.

And the House Judiciary Committee has floated a proposal that makes the DOJ's position law, making it a crime to access a website for any "impermissible purpose."

Pour yourself a cup of coffee or pop open a beer. This is a long one. I'm on a rant.

First, Amos gets an A+.

From an article in a book on political science on my bookshelves:
Fascism is a philosophy of government that stresses the primacy and glory of the state, unquestioning obedience to its leader, subordination of the individual will to the state's authority, and harsh suppression of dissent. Martial virtues are celebrated, while liberal and democratic values are disparaged.

Fascism arose during the 1920s and '30s partly out of fear of the rising power of the working classes; it differed from contemporary communism (as practiced under Joseph Stalin) by its protection of business and landowning elites and its preservation of class systems.

The leaders of the fascist governments of Italy (1922–43), Germany (1933–45), and Spain (1939–75)—Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, and Francisco Franco—were portrayed to their people as embodiments of the strength and resolve necessary to rescue their nations from political and economic chaos. Japanese fascists (1936–45) fostered belief in the uniqueness of the Japanese spirit and taught subordination to the state and personal sacrifice.
Benito Mussolini described Fascism as a "bundle" or "unit" made up of the corporations and the government. Essentially one and the same. Hence, the use of the old Roman symbol of the fasces, from which Fascism derives its name. Mussolini said that the fasces is a perfect symbol, since it is a bundle of sticks tied around a battle-axe. All acting as a unit, they are far stronger than they would be if acting separately. The sticks symbolize the corporations, and the axe symbolizes the power of the government.

Where Hitler differed from other Fascist leaders and Fascist states was in the racism of Nazi Germany. The idea that Germans were of the Aryan race, and all other races had to go. Non-Aryans were the source of all society's ills. Hence, the death camps.

To Mussolini and Franco, the other major Fascist leaders, this didn't seem to matter that much (although in the mid-1930s, Mussolini did crap all over Ethiopia, but that was not essentially a racial thing. He had designs on East Africa).

Hitler characterized his government as "National Socialism." Socialism is a system whereby "the people" own the tools of production and share in the profits thereof. Under National Socialism, the government owns the tools of production. He was a bit fuzzy about who gets the profits.

The United States is a system of regulated Capitalism, the idea of which is to glean the advantages of Capitalism, but not let the corporations run rampant to the point where the country slides into Fascism.

In the 1930s, Franklin Delano Roosevelt stomped on the slide toward Fascism by starting regulatory agencies such as the Securities Exchange Commission, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Communications Commission, the National Labor Relations Act, and The Fair Labor Standards Act (among other things, establishing minimum wages). He also instituted the Works Projects Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps to put people back to work, build the country's infrastructure, and put money in peoples' pockets, particulary money they have to spent right away on things like food and rent, which would put the money back into circulation and immediately stimulate a very sick economy. He also ended poor houses and poor farms and provided security (referred to back then as the "old age pension") for the elderly by creating the Social Security Administration.

Some of these regulatory agencies kept the bankers and financiers from continuing to fleece the public, and made them generally behave themselves.

The people loved him! They voted him back in for a total of an unprecedented four terms. But Wall Street seethed. And plotted. It took them awhile but—

This may sound strange, but a giant step toward turning the U. S. into a Fascist country was made by Ronald Reagan, who began systematically castrating the regulatory agencies by replacing the commissioners with people from the very businesses they were supposed to regulate. I've said it before and I'll say it again: a classic example of putting the foxes in charge of the chicken coop.

Another, and more obvious giant step is "Citizens United," giving corporations free reign to buy politicians by the bulk!

=======

I am not happy with Obama. He equivocates and tries to compromise with people who will NOT compromise. But in the last two presidential elections, he was the only viable candidate who was NOT hell-bent on continuing the gallop toward that amalgam of corporations and government which is known as

FASCISM.

What this country needs is another Franklin D. Roosevelt. Or at least, someone with real guts and determination, like old "give 'em hell" Harry Truman.

Thus endeth the sermon for today!

Exactly. Whether Mr Obama is a Fascist or not is not really the thing to be debating here, because it's just a label, and a person cannot be summed up in a label. The important point is, though, that he's the president of a Fascist military empire that is quite obviously trying to dominate the entire world and be the sole Superpower and the arbiter of the human race's collective destiny, and for what??? For the benefit of the oligarchy of rich elites who run that empire.

Obama is their errand boy. Or maybe he's their prisoner. Or their handpicked man? I'm not sure which, and there's no way to know if one can't get inside his head and know his actual thoughts.

Be sure of one thing, though. He's temporary. Same as Bush. You'll all have someone else to fight about after Obama is gone. He's just the temporary tip of the iceberg, and it's the rest of the iceberg you have to worry about...the part you don't see.

Definite "yes" to that, Stringsinger. It's been happening for a long time too, not just since Ronald Reagan, but Reagan gave American fascism a major boost in the 1980s. Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama have all added further volumes to it since then. If there'd been someone as incompetent and dangerously stupid as Ronald Reagan in charge of the Soviet Union during the 1980s, I think we'd all be dead now...and our remains would be highly radioactive.

I'd criticize any other country just the same way if it did the kind of grandiose imperial stuff the USA has been doing since the end of WWII (and actually, for quite awhile before that...Monroe Doctrine, Phillipines, Cuba, Guam, Puerto Rico, various Central American interventions, etc.). I don't approve of messianic military empires that invade, economically colonize, and dominate weaker nations all over the world just so a few incredibly rich men can get richer. Nor do I approve of their leaders when they make that possible.

Obama's just the latest one to follow the same old line, that's all. I was absolutely delighted when he got elected in 2008, because I dreamed that he might be a real progressive and would change things, maybe be another FDR. I was also very pleased that a black man had been elected president and that McCaine and Palin had lost! It seemed to open the door to brand new possibilities.

That has not happened, however, and it's quite clearly not going to. What we are getting is standard imperial policy and standard domestic corruption, just like before. Obama is Bush III. He doesn't look like a Bush. He doesn't talk like a Bush. But his presidency is just more of the same old story.

Elect the Republicans again, and it'll be just as bad...maybe even worse.

Detroit's newly appointed emergency manager has been granted unprecedented powers under the terms of an anti-democratic law in Michigan that went into effect Thursday.

   Public Act (PA) 436, which was pushed through by the Republican-controlled state legislature after voters defeated a similar measure in November, gives emergency managers in six Michigan cities and three school districts authority to slash budgets, reopen labor agreements, impose unilateral concessions and shut down or privatize city departments and services.

The measure is aimed at establishing what amounts to a financial dictator in Detroit, with the aim of using the city as a test case for imposing deeply unpopular measures in line with what is occurring in Cyprus, Greece and other European countries.

The entire political establishment, Democrat and Republican, is engaged in a conspiracy toward workers in the city.

Governor Rick Snyder, a multi-millionaire former venture capitalist and Republican, and Democratic Treasury Secretary Andy Dillon have turned over control of Detroit to a Washington, DC bankruptcy attorney whose former law firm represents the same Wall Street investment houses that control Detroit's municipal bonds and other debt.

Kevyn Orr, a lifelong Democrat, is a former law partner of Cleveland-based Jones Day, which has represented Citigroup, UBS AG, JPMorgan Chase and other banks that hold much of the city's $8.6 billion in long-term bond debt. His appointment immediately led to an upgrade in Detroit's credit rating from negative to stable, as investors anticipated he would oversee their repayment by intensifying the attack on the working class....

http://www.gloucestercitynews.net/clearysnotebook/2013/03/it-wreaks-of-fascism-lansingmichigan-imposes-dictatorial-rule-in-detro

So what's up with Detroit? Didn't Obama save that town along with the auto industry in his first term? Of course, he had to kill the unions and slash wages and benefits to do it, but once General Motors was essentially nationalized everything was supposed to be okay in Motor City. And now they have a fascist city manager, an appointed thug who just kicked the elected people to the curb. Obama's easy stimulus money is coming with a hell of an interest rate, at least in Detroit. Democrats and Republicans working hand-in-glove on the fascism here.

I bought this book some years ago and it gave me new insights into what is truly fascist. It is Walter Laquer's "Fascism--Past, Present and Future." Mr. Laquer, whom for what it's worth is Jewish, points out the pitfalls of deciding what is fascist and how the word is thrown loosely about to insult certain people (such as it is being done here). So, no Obama is not a fascist, Bush was not a fascist and not even the Japanese military govt of WW2 was fascist.

I am pleased that this book, just a small essay really, has finally been uploaded online. I highly suggest EVERYBODY read it before this ridiculous argument drags on any further because it so childish I can scarcely believe adult people engage in such things.

One thing that helps in our quest to discover what is truly fascist is to read books written by people that were intimately involved in the Italian and German govts. I read Albert Speer's autobiography and something he said struck me:

He said that in Nazi Germany, all the arts and sciences were strictly segregated into little "chambers." He said nobody in one chamber had any contact with anybody from another. It is as though the Nazis did not believe physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, mathematics, music, architecture and like were in any way connected. Astronomy under the Nazis was virtually a strictly cultural propaganda tool--probably because so many Jewish physicists had changed it so irrevocably. Speer said that had the Nazis won the war, the govt would not have lasted more than a dozen more years due to this segregation of the arts and sciences. Segregated, they are useless.

Speer was Hitler's chief architect and pointed out that Hitler had no real political vision for Germany. Everything was aesthetics. He had an aesthetic vision. That's why every city he took over he wanted redone in the Roman or Greek traditions--marble with big columns and what not. Order and cleanliness was essential to Hitler's vision. Appearance was everything. If you didn't fit into his aesthetic view, your days were drastically numbered. The Jews and Gypsies were not a political enemy to Hitler, they were simply vermin and nothing more. Vermin must be exterminated and the infestation eliminated. Small wonder then that the prussic acid used to gas so many Jews and Gypsies--Zyklon B--was, in fact, an insecticide invented by I.G. Farben.

Thanks for that, Futwick. I think I know the subject pretty well, but I've downloaded that and will read it shortly.

I have a close friend (had; he passed away a few years ago) who was born in Hungary, the son of a prominent theoretical physicist, and who was Jewish. They managed to escape by a matter of minutes, or the whole family would have been sent to the death camps. He told me much of his remembrances as a youngster, growing up in constant fear. Not just him, but his parents and friends as well.

I also had a friend, an exchange student at the University of Washington, Rolf H., German, who'd HAD to join the Hitler Youth when he was a boy, and then was essentially impressed into the Luftwaffe. He thought the idea of flying airplanes—Messerschmitt ME-109s—was fun, BUT—he had no desire to go to war against anyone. In impending dog fights with British and American planes, he said that he, and some other pilots he knew, would head for the nearest cloud bank, fire their guns until empty, then fly back to base. This, he said, was not out of cowardice. It sprung from the fact that they did not like Hitler, his regime, and what he was doing to Germany and trying to do to the whole world—and they did not feel they had any reason to kill anyone, especially when they were only trying to defend themselves against the regime of der Führer and his madness.

Rolf had a LOT to say about living under Fascism!

But more formally, I've taken Political Science, Ethics, and Philosophy, in addition to Music and English Literature, in college, so the idea that I am "brainwashed" and just "go with the flow" that Goofballupagus and Niggardly Bastard (he calls himself that, I didn't) are accusing me of is baseless personal insult founded on pure ignorance on their parts, and says more about them than it does about me.

But then, having read some of their other stuff, is anybody surprised that neither of them could find their own butts with both hands and copy of Grey's Anatomy, and that their political acumen comes from the likes of Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh?

There is another definition that includes the takeover of government by corporate power as in the case of Mussolini.

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy

This is probably the same MO as the NRA. This has been used by almost every US
president in history.


2. Create a gulag


By this I assume the reference is to Guantanmo and Abu Graibh. Or the privatization of the prison system in the US

3. Develop a thug caste

Here, a better reference is the US Congress or the GOP/Tea Party

4. Set up an internal surveillance system

This is lamentable and is being done.

5. Harass citizens' groups

This is being done by all kinds of groups, governmental and NGO's such as the Koch Brothers.

6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release

This is also unfortunate.

7. Target key individuals

Yes, the drones to that.

8. Control the press

Control is a fact of political life. Obama really can't control the press. You have to leave that to Murdoch and corporatists like him. Fox so-called News for example.

Obama is only one man and many have him by the balls. The Military Industrial Complex,
Wall Streeters, Lobbyists and money. Also, the Supreme Court that declares that corporations are people. Now that is fascist.

U.S. SEEKS TO GET RID OF LEFT GOVERNMENTS IN LATIN AMERICA

Recent events indicate that the Obama administration has stepped up its strategy of "regime change" against the left-of-center governments in Latin America, promoting conflict in ways not seen since the military coup that Washington supported in Venezuela in 2002. The most high-profile example is in Venezuela itself, during the past week. As this goes to press, Washington has grown increasingly isolated in its efforts to destabilize the newly elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

But Venezuela is not the only country to fall prey to Washington's efforts to reverse the electoral results of the past 15 years in Latin America. It is now clear that last year's ouster of President Fernando Lugo of Paraguay was also aided and abetted by the United States government. In a brilliant investigative work for Agência Pública, journalist Natalia Viana shows that the Obama administration funded the principal actors involved in the "parliamentary coup" against Lugo. Washington then helped organize international support for coup.

The U.S. role in Paraguay is similar to its role in the military overthrow of democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras in 2009, where Washington hijacked the Organization of American States (OAS) and used it to fight the efforts of South American governments who wanted to restore democracy. Zelaya later testified that Washington was also involved in the coup itself.

BARACK OBAMA PAYS TRIBUTE TO GEORGE W. BUSH AT PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY OPENING

The dedication ceremony for the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas Thursday was an opportunity for the American political elite, Democratic and Republican wing alike, to express its essential unity and singleness of purpose.

President Barack Obama was on hand, as were former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, to celebrate probably the most hated resident of the White House in US history, the younger Bush, whose administration is associated by tens of millions with illegal war, torture and corporate criminality.

Although not surprising, Obama's fulsome praise for his predecessor, in front of an audience that included former Vice President Dick Cheney and, according to the New York Times, "a collection of current and former foreign leaders and lawmakers as well as hundreds of former Bush administration officials and thousands of his admirers," was especially significant.

The current president told his audience, "The first thing I found in that desk the day I took office was a letter from George [W. Bush], and one that demonstrated his compassion and generosity."

Obama is part of the American political elite, as is your "cast of idiots in the Republican primaries." They are all part of the elite, and that elite is fascist.

Sure, the Republicans would have been bad, but Obama has brought us more fascism that George W. Bush did. Obama has put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block with his 2014 budget. First president to touch that "third rail of American politics." Obama is going to privatize FDR's Tennessee Valley Authority with the 2014 budget. Obama has cast thousands of cancer patients out of treatment with the Medicare cuts brought about by his sequester. The list goes on and on and on. Obama is a fascist, but many of his supporters cover for him because he's "better than the alternative." That is a control device, the lesser of two evils. That is the one of the ways in which the fascists advance their agenda.

Officials: Obama to name NC Rep. Melvin Watt to housing finance post, ex-lobbyist as FCC chief"

By Associated Press, Published: April 30 | Updated: Wednesday, May 1, 5:56 AM

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama intends to nominate Rep. Melvin Watt to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the government regulator that oversees lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and he has chosen a former cable and wireless industry lobbyist to head the Federal Communications Commission, according to White House officials.

If confirmed by the Senate for the FHFA post, Watt, D-N.C., a 20-year veteran of the House, would replace Edward DeMarco, an appointee of President George W. Bush who has been a target of housing advocates, liberal groups and Democratic lawmakers.

Interesting article:

Socialist or Fascist

It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a "socialist." He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism.

What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama's point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.

Government ownership of the means of production means that politicians also own the consequences of their policies, and have to face responsibility when those consequences are disastrous -- something that Barack Obama avoids like the plague.

Thus the Obama administration can arbitrarily force insurance companies to cover the children of their customers until the children are 26 years old. Obviously, this creates favorable publicity for President Obama. But if this and other government edicts cause insurance premiums to rise, then that is something that can be blamed on the "greed" of the insurance companies.

The same principle, or lack of principle, applies to many other privately owned businesses. It is a very successful political ploy that can be adapted to all sorts of situations.

One of the reasons why both pro-Obama and anti-Obama observers may be reluctant to see him as fascist is that both tend to accept the prevailing notion that fascism is on the political right, while it is obvious that Obama is on the political left.

Back in the 1920s, however, when fascism was a new political development, it was widely -- and correctly -- regarded as being on the political left. Jonah Goldberg's great book "Liberal Fascism" cites overwhelming evidence of the fascists' consistent pursuit of the goals of the left, and of the left's embrace of the fascists as one of their own during the 1920s....

You are all tugging at the same rope, and just don't see it, especially those so consummately entrenched in partisan ideologies!! ....maybe this will help:


A chemistry professor at a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?' The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.

You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat; you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.

Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.   

I found this an extremely fascinating and interesting parable and one I can totally endorse. For we must guard carefully not to fall into the trap of being so dependent on the government that we lose our sense of responsibility for our live and even worse, the very spark of life.

Yet, this also brings me to the recognition that we are caught in a rather interesting dilemma are we not. While I agree with the "trap" of the wild pig and the problems that presents, we are also experiencing what happens when you let the pigs (pun intended) run wild (the effect of too much de-regulation for example) and the effects it has on our society overall. – Anyone enjoying the financial crisis we are in? So the real question, (and I believe the true answer) lies in how do we find the right balance.

The trouble we have in our political system is we keep running back and forth between taming the wild pigs and letting them run wild. Wildness is good for creativity, entrepreneurialism, and the like. You want the free flow of energy to stimulate new innovation. And yet when you have unbounded flow of energy you have chaos, which then has to correct itself. As we learn to work with the powerful flow of societal energies, I believe we can learn to modulate the unbounded flow of energy while not reaching the point of constraining it to where we are limiting its flow.

When are we ever going to get a leader that understands the need for balance and stop with the rhetoric of polar opposite making one side wrong and the other right (and I don't care which side we are talking about). Is it not time for us to have true leadership in this country, and in our companies. Leadership that can connect deeply with the soul of the entity (be it our country or our companies) and guide the energy that flows from there in a balanced way so that we are contributing effectively to our society and our planet?
......................................................................

On another currently running thread, I posted this, which came right from the horse's mouth, in which one resident 'activist' just couldn't believe it!

"In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was," Obama said.

To some, that is totally understandable, to others a puzzle.

HINT: ALL of the 'heated ideologies' are fences! Some are brain-locked in!!!

Calm down, Don...I was not claiming authorship for the whole post....just some...it's a parable that I posted before, matter of fact, and only posting a perspective closer to mine..

As far as, (Don): "Anyone who knows anything at all about Fascism knows that President Obama is not a Fascist"

...what HE said was, ""In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was."

Sorry he popped your bubble of delusion...don't you think HE knows what HE was talking about?

Maybe that puts my whole position in perspective...but to gain perspective, as in stereoscopic vision, you can't have the myopic use of 'one eye'....and a polarized notion of an individual ideology does just that!

As I've been saying for years on here now, as given to me by James Baldwin, "Left wing and right wing are on the same bird!"

Right, Jack.

And with all due respect to James Baldwin (assuming that he actually said that), Right Wing and Left Wing have nothing to do with birds.

In the States General in France in the late eighteenth century, leading up to the French Revolution. From Wikipedia:
" The terms "Left" and "Right" appeared during the French Revolution of 1789 when members of the National Assembly divided into supporters of the king to the president's right and supporters of the revolution to his left.

One deputy, the Baron de Gauville explained, "We began to recognize each other: those who were loyal to the king and the aristocracy took up positions to the right of the chairman, leaving the seats to the left to the deputies representing the common people and the peasantry."

The modern press use the terms "left" and "right" to refer to the opposing sides, Liberal and Conservative."
Nothing to do with birds.

Love Rowan!! Great pic!

Glad to see your contributing to the topic's discussion.

Don't get your nose bent, because your favored President isn't what he presented himself to the propagandized media outlets. It happens quite regularly.

Meanwhile, the corporate/government/banksters keep hittin' us with a right and a left...and while you root for your 'side' to win, it never does, just partly....then they hand off to the 'other side'..while THEIR agenda marches forward.

Still think Obama won't approve the Keystone pipeline?...Maybe he'll 'work out a deal'(rolls eyes), to keep Obamacare, in 'trade' for the pipeline....that way the corporate insurers will make a bunch of money, the government will have and exhaustive profile of everybody, and tighter controls on them, and the pipeline will be sold to the public as a 'practical solution' to afford Obamacare!...Meanwhile, no real socialized healthcare, oil companies are happy, we would export 60% of the oil, in accordance with NAFTA, and then you can vote for more 'Hope and Change', and root for your side.....and even get yourself to believe that the politicians are really representing you....and me...and everybody who 'voted' for them.

Hey, do you think before the Keystone pipeline gets approved, the President will know exactly when to move his investments to oil??

Talk about 'income inequality'!!!....That's for public consumption, not a moral code that any of them are living by!

Just remember my rap about being in the ring with the boxer. 'Conservative' and 'Liberal' agendas...?
As far as they are concerned, they don't exist....(which should answer 'Guest's' question to me, about 'the 'so-called liberal agenda')...there is none...but it make a great excuse.
Under Bush, they worked the 'patriotism' charade to the 'Conservatives'...Obama worked the 'social justice' rap to the liberals....and it worked...after all, he was a black 'community organizer', so he MUST(?) know and care about that, right??....(rolls eyes)...

Anyway, have a pleasant delusion...should be a lot of fun, complete with insane anxieties, and more hoping for change, and rooting for your 'side'(?)

As for me...I'm just gonna' keep working on the music...if I want 'Hope and Change', I'll buy a three dollar lottery ticket with a five dollar bill!

Besides, working on the music helps to keep you objective...............and helps with keeping you free.

GfS

P.S. And remember, "In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was," Obama said.

Continuing with the column mentioned above:

...Back in the 1920s, however, when fascism was a new political development, it was widely -- and correctly -- regarded as being on the political left. Jonah Goldberg's great book "Liberal Fascism" cites overwhelming evidence of the fascists' consistent pursuit of the goals of the left, and of the left's embrace of the fascists as one of their own during the 1920s.

Mussolini, the originator of fascism, was lionized by the left, both in Europe and in America, during the 1920s. Even Hitler, who adopted fascist ideas in the 1920s, was seen by some, including W.E.B. Du Bois, as a man of the left.

It was in the 1930s, when ugly internal and international actions by Hitler and Mussolini repelled the world, that the left distanced themselves from fascism and its Nazi offshoot -- and verbally transferred these totalitarian dictatorships to the right, saddling their opponents with these pariahs.

What socialism, fascism and other ideologies of the left have in common is an assumption that some very wise people -- like themselves -- need to take decisions out of the hands of lesser people, like the rest of us, and impose those decisions by government fiat.

The left's vision is not only a vision of the world, but also a vision of themselves, as superior beings pursuing superior ends. In the United States, however, this vision conflicts with a Constitution that begins, "We the People..."

That is why the left has for more than a century been trying to get the Constitution's limitations on government loosened or evaded by judges' new interpretations, based on notions of "a living Constitution" that will take decisions out of the hands of "We the People," and transfer those decisions to our betters.

The self-flattery of the vision of the left also gives its true believers a huge ego stake in that vision, which means that mere facts are unlikely to make them reconsider, regardless of what evidence piles up against the vision of the left, and regardless of its disastrous consequences.

Only our own awareness of the huge stakes involved can save us from the rampaging presumptions of our betters, whether they are called socialists or fascists. So long as we buy their heady rhetoric, we are selling our birthright of freedom.

Another interesting article, which quotes from Sowell's column:

Barack Obama: Socialist or Nouveau Fascist?

...So if Obama isn't a socialist, what is he? Economically speaking it's far more accurate to say that he is a fascist -- a supporter of dirigisme, in which government manages the economy through central planning, not collective ownership. Fascism did not seek to stamp out the innovative, wealth-creating potential of profit-seeking investment and entrepreneurship - instead it sought to channel those innovations (and funnel that wealth) to the good of the state.

"In fascist Italy the state pays for the blunders of private enterprise," Italian social critic Gaetano Salvemini wrote in the mid-1930s.

When business was good, "profit remained to private initiative." However when downturns came (as they inevitably do), "the government added the loss to the taxpayer's burden."

"Profit is private and individual," Salvemini wrote. "Loss is public and social."

This is the basis of fascism's "third way" between laissez-faire capitalism and Marxism. It's also precisely the economic system we see at work in America today, a centralized bureaucratic oligarchy in which farm subsidies, investments in "green jobs," Wall Street bailouts, Export-Import Bank subsidies and numerous other taxpayer-funded incentives manipulate the market to serve specific political purposes.

Obviously the fascist analogy isn't perfect. Unlike Obama, fascists abhorred class warfare (and labor's efforts to foment it) because such societal divisions ran counter to their nationalist ideology. And while fascist economic policies can certainly perpetuate the redistribution of wealth, they also tend to create powerful privileged elites that leverage tax dollars and political favors so as to manipulate the market in their favor.

So is Obama's brand of 21st century socialism/ nouveau fascism really "more insidious" than pure socialism, as Sowell suggests? Yes, because unlike socialism - the public sector never "takes a loss," as the recent bureaucratic bailouts made clear.

Also consider this: Is any property really "private" if the government can take it based on little more than a whim? And is any sector of the economy really "private" as long as government can swoop in and set its prices and production quotas? And finally, is any market truly "free" if government can compel citizens to make specific purchases?

Of course not -- all of which makes Obama's ideology dangerous no matter what label we slap on it.

OK, let's put it in context. Like most of us, I imagine, I listened to the pre-Superbowl O'Reilly/Obama interview. I knew in what context the President said it but I had to look up the transcript for it.

President Obama was referring to the fond belief the Republicans hold close that the President is "the most liberal US president ever", even though the facts don't even come close to supporting that view.

President Nixon is believed by the Republicans to have been an acceptably conservative president- I have heard it said that no other president in modern times could have gone to China as he did to proffer an olive branch. It was a very LIBERAL act.

As President Obama said in the interview, President Nixon proposed and passed a number of issues and laws, like the EPA (which the Republicans currently loathe) and set in motion a lot of regulations that affect our air and water even today. To the good. Those were LIBERAL acts.

President Obama, on the other hand, has not been able to pass many or even most of his liberal desires, due to the very same people who allowed President Nixon to get away with it.

I can't think of anything more unkind than to come on this forum than to anonymously claim that a poster has a mental disorder. This is made worse by the fact the the chosen names of the poster and the subject of the post strongly imply that neither are sane.

We have two ongoing threads which rudely invoke the President's last name whose opening posts echo the theme "Songwonger hates President" which have no posts at all that didn't concern the relative degrees of stupidity of the opening poster, GfS or one or more of the people arguing with them. Since one post now is discussing GfS's faults with sidebars, into SW's fault and the other is about SW's faults with forays into complaining about GfS, wouldn't it be simpler if the threads were combined at this point?

Yeah!! Try giving an intelligent response, instead of all the juvenile cat calling and objections, to being asked to comment on your actual position, based on information and not emotional immaturity.
(BTW, that's what public forums are for!...aren't they???

I think even SRS MIGHT even agree."

...and YES I was blocked out, for a few days.....It's the second time.

.................................................................

OK!... That being said, the ONLY intelligent response to my quote from Obama, came from Ebbie, which I'll respond to, but not tonight...(too tired).

..........................................

As to 'Great Folk Songs' being a 'co-incidence'.....I was there when he was typing it, being as I answered his question to, "Are you still writing on that forum?".....from a bass player of whom we've been jamming with. I explained it, and he took a look, and could not believe that I was 'blocked out', for my last post.
I just smiled, and said, "Figures, These guys aren't thinking things through very far."
So he proceeded to get his post in.....we mused with the name for the 'poster'...so whichever 'Guest' commented, was half-way correct.
I wondered if someone would catch it....ideologues are great at picking up on little stuff....while not having a clue on the big, very obvious.....but I'll get into that in my response to Ebbie. (Good reply, BTW, Ebbie!)

Political suppression to keep people uninformed IS stupid! Politics uses the divide to allow certain facts to come out, to each of their followings, and keep people stupid, in regards to the WHOLE picture....so would it suffice to say, that partisan politics, is the method of keeping people HALF-stupid?...only telling them what you WANT them to hear, to support one side or the other?
Just look at all the name calling, and attempts to discredit people on here, as a method of avoiding the WHOLE picture.
Do you call that 'wisdom'??????....Do you call that 'intellectual honesty'??..Do you call that 'maturity'???....Do you call that putting forth a 'better idea'????.....or just people reaching the limits of their indoctrinations, while knowing not HOW to think, and substituting that with being indoctrinated as to WHAT to think???...and when they run out of 'ready made talking point answers' they resort to name calling and immature name calling???
Shit..You're the one wanting to 'moderate'...can't you tell the difference?
To get into this further, I need to reply to Ebbie...there are some things in there that might open some eyeballs. After all, it was Obama's statement that, "In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was".....and he either was correct or not correct....beauty, as well as ugly, is in the eyes of the beholder. When it runs cross-grain to what 'liberals' or conservatives, THOUGHT, maybe it's time to RE-CONSIDER your positions, and find out what HE meant. To me, the explanation is perfectly clear....all you have to do is consider WHO he is working for, and why!
....and not swallow the talking points, as to why, if he was so 'liberal' did he funnel the healthcare through private insurance companies, instead of a straight government funded program...and on top of that, provide a bailout for the insurance companies....and NOT for the people needing healthcare!!!...and it's NOT because the Republicans stood in the way(that's a bullshit talking point) When Obamacare was passed the Democrats had the Presidency, the Senate, and the House of 'Representatives'....so ANYONE who uses that B.S. rap, doesn't know shit from Shinola...and is willfully deceiving people...and that is STUPID!...wouldn't you agree??
As i pointed out before, people will try to make the best decisions based on the information given to them....if they are deceived, that doesn't make them 'evil'..it only means that they were trying to do the best, but with bad information....it is the DECEIVERS, who know they are deceiving, who are practicing evil! ..Once a person gets good info, then hopefully they will continue on to make the best decisions, as they were, but this time getting accurate info.
Those who think they are so 'clever' for their ability to spin the truth, just to bolster their deceptions, OR faulty positions, should be viewed with EXTREME skepticism, both for their morals AND integrity!.....Ya' think ???!! ....and if they persist, Maybe even tarred and feathered, and run out of town on a rail, like some fast-talking snake oil salesman.
Unfortunately our political system is in shambles....not because of Obama or Bush(es), Clinton(s), Nixon, Ford, Carter etc etc but what and who they represent, and why. I fault any of them with not leveling with us, the people....and I don't give a tinker's damn about what fucking party they are pretending to represent.

....but how could you be stupid??.....You knew that all along, didn't you?

Oh, I know!...I'm not a political cat...but suppressed? Yeppers..probably because I'm NOT a political cat....I'm just not as crazy as some of the obsessed, rabid wannabes on here(or for that matter, not in here). If there is one thing that is a complete waste of anyone's time and talents, is trying to find a solution for a lie...and boy!..are there a bunch on here who have been lied to for so long, they couldn't even recognize the truth, even if they hadn't noticed that they've exhausted themselves, by making all sorts of 'spun' excuses for 'their' party's failed bullshit! You just can't explain it all away, without chasing your own tail(talk about spinning!!)

As to Ebbie,(sorry, I didn't do this before, but it's been a long week!)

Ebbie: "OK, let's put it in context. Like most of us, I imagine, I listened to the pre-Superbowl O'Reilly/Obama interview. I knew in what context the President said it but I had to look up the transcript for it.

President Obama was referring to the fond belief the Republicans hold close that the President is "the most liberal US president ever", even though the facts don't even come close to supporting that view."

True.(But that's only because the Republicans, like the Democrats, are told what to think)

"President Nixon is believed by the Republicans to have been an acceptably conservative president- I have heard it said that no other president in modern times could have gone to China as he did to proffer an olive branch. It was a very LIBERAL act."

Actually Prescott Bush had been working that angle since the '50's..and a 'liberal act'?..more like NWO/bankster/multinational corporate business, but for the sake of your point, I don't see why you say it was 'liberal'. Nixon was touted as being a 'true statesman' at the time, (remember?)

"As President Obama said in the interview, President Nixon proposed and passed a number of issues and laws, like the EPA (which the Republicans currently loathe) and set in motion a lot of regulations that affect our air and water even today. To the good. Those were LIBERAL acts."

OK...This is the bit of slight of hand, liberal or not, who knows?
Today, it is seen as 'liberal'..but in reality, if China was going to be developing as a 'player' in the International Conglomerate, they needed to be able to 'control its growth or progress'. Keeping in mind, that this wasn't as much of an American project, as it was an 'economic leveraging'. To do that, instead of anti-monopoly and anti-trust laws, they needed an International Regulatory Body of 'regulations'....now here's the trick that sly bastards have been using, (and you can look this up) It's called 'Captive Regulations' an example ...What it is, is that to control the interests of the Global money controllers, 'regulations' are formed and stacked to control the markets, to protect the Bankster profiteers, and to control virtually EVERYTHING, while circumnavigating the laws of any given country. In other words, they lock everyone else out of the game they're playing! A common one is INSURANCE! 'Environmental' issues..(which have NOTHING to do with the 'environment',BTW...that rap is the one they use to 'sell it'.....however, the environment is important....just not why they 'regulate'.
If you're a 'liberal' you would be concerned about the environment, of course, but if you're a Global venture capitalist, you don't want anyone else developing the way YOU did(or even better)...hence, they merge regulations to insure that.....and always in their favor, not the people's!
Another stellar example, Kissinger, 1979 makes a deal with the Saudis, we buy their oil, they buy our Treasury notes and we agree not to drill here....but we are told by the Carter Administration that our domestic drilling was halted for environmental reasons. The 'liberals' think they have won an environmental issue...the 'conservatives' get pissed at the 'environmental wackos'..but it had NOTHING to do with environmentalists...but they take the rap for all the new 'regulations'....meanwhile hostilities grow between the 'conservatives' and the 'liberals' over it...the domestic oil companies are pissed and restricted....and blame the 'environmentalists'....but there is nothing they can do about it, because of the 'captive regulations'....enacted to protect the interests of the global bankers. When the time is of their choosing, those 'regulations' will be lifted...but not before the Mideast, is so disrupted, that 'we' HAVE to drill here...that way the treaty with the Mideast is broken, but it was pre-planned all along to rip them off, (for the advantage of the banksters)....America 'gets' to drill, the notes don't get paid back, because the 'agreement' was made to the former Saudi government. As I've said before, (for a couple of years) two governments have yet to be disrupted..Jordan and the Saudis...which we will see happen...when it happens, just remember that you heard it first here on Mudcat, of all places!!


"President Obama, on the other hand, has not been able to pass many or even most of his liberal desires, due to the very same people who allowed President Nixon to get away with it."

RIGHT!!!...but it's not who you think it is. It's not the 'conservatives', it's not the Republicans....the two parties are working together at the behest of the global banksters...who also own the media(s), and who also control the national dialogue. Not only can Obama NOT pass what YOU THINK are his 'liberal desires' he is also passing the desires of the banksters...under the guise of 'liberalism', just the same way the 'conservatives' are ALLOWED to pass (or not pass), their stated 'ideological agendas'.
Haven't you noticed that their positions 'change' once the 'other party' gains 'control(?) of the Administrations??? What they were AGAINST, their suddenly FOR, once the parties shift???
Listen to Obama's speeches BEFORE he was President, and compare them with his actions, once he was in office. No difference than the guy he replaced! Listen to him say how Bush's deficits were 'obscene' then run up multiples of it!...Listen to him jump on Bush for Bush's power grab for 'Executive Orders'...then go hog-wild, doing the same.
Forget that you voted for a 'black liberal' ......that's for appealing to the 'need for change'....when in fact, it's the same old shit!.......and speaking of payoffs, look at ALL the 'bailouts' and stimulus monies, and what do we have to show for it???? Every one of them was money thrown away!! Stimulus jobs??????...Where??....green energy grants??...everyone of them kaput!....Obamacare??...money for the insurance companies, INCLUDING bailout money for them...BUT NOT FOR THE PATIENTS.....and meanwhile the noose tightens for the common citizen.
What is there not to understand?? It's happening every day that we live...and yet STILL, the media has the public fooled that it is a Conservative/Liberal clash and tug of war!!
Want another simple example?....in Vietnam, the 'war' was prolonged to accommodate the heroin trade from the 'Golden Triangle', and the shipment of arms to the Shah of Iran....then the public turned against the war....(The Democrats co-opted the 'Peace Movement' while pandering to the drug use)....so we got out of Vietnam and went where?..Central America..which just so happened to be gushing with cocaine and pot, which just co-incidentally became a VERY lucrative enterprise, for the same people who ran the Vietnam operation....now, we're back to heroin.....which happens to be Afghanistan's biggest export....hmm..how'd that happen...another 'co-incidence'??
Colonel Oliver North testified before the House, (Iran/Contra hearings) that the lucrative drug business, is what won the economic war with the Soviets....it sure must have been a massive amounts of bread to pull that off!!!...and it is...and just like Reagan's Administration, this one is STILL supplying guns to the cartels, though they got a flimsy rap to 'justify it'......and the beat goes on!
Now to answer 'Guest's' question to me about what I meant by the 'so-called liberal agenda'......the truth is, there is none!..just like there is no 'conservative agenda'.....that's only for us peons to haggle over. did Bush 'restore dignity' to the White House??...Did we all get our 'Hope and Change'??
What we got, between the two of them(and not just limited to those two), is our national wealth drained....and our military being used as a mercenary force for the banksters....(under the guise of 'patriotism', of course)....and of course, perfectly well meaning people fighting with each other's alleged 'thinking'(as witnessed on here!)
the truth is, when the big banks compete, lot's of people die....and we don't even get the truth about that, either!!

Shorter version.....'Captive Regulations' are the 'regulations' that the writers ARE the people being 'regulated' in conjunction with whatever government they are writing it with...making sure that the hen-house is guarded by the correct foxes. It helps keep 'other foxes' from gaining access, and exerts the maximum security for their own brood. It is marketed to the people of being some wonderful, visionary necessity for the people's own 'safety', and publicized as being either 'right' or 'left'....Whether Obama or Nixon is seen as a 'Fascist' or not, is virtually irrelevant!

Europe Stunned After Being Told "Obama Is Not In Charge"

EU Times

Sun, Sept 18, 2011

Subject: Obama is Not In Charge

Tim Geithner Says He's In Charge

"A new report prepared by Russian Deputy Finance Minister Tatyana Nesterenko about the Eurogroup meeting of the Informal Economic and Financial Affairs Council (ECOFIN) in Wroclaw Poland on the growing European debt crisis states that EU Finance Ministers were "left stunned" Friday after they were told by US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner [photo top right] that President Obama was "not in charge."

According to this report, the "uninvited" US Treasury Secretary showed up at the ECOFIN conference and engaged in what can only be described as a "temper tantrum" where he slammed Europe's economic policy makers for their intransigence in provided further bailouts to Greece and when queried by European Central Bank (ECB) Chief Jean-Claude Trichet as to if this was "Obama's position too" was told by Geithner, "He's (Obama) not in charge, I am."

ECB Chief Trichet, according to other news reports, rebuked Geithner and stated that the financial position of the 17-member Eurozone is better than that of other major economies, especially the United States.

This shocking revelation as to who is actually running the United States comes on the heals of further allegations that Geithner deliberately ignored Obama's orders to prepare a plan to "wind down" the mammoth international banking group Citigroup Inc. in order to help save the American economy, and as we can, in part, read as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle:

"U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner ignored an order in 2009 from President Barack Obama to prepare a plan to "wind down" Citigroup Inc., once the biggest bank in the world, according to a book to be released next week.

Geithner didn't proceed with Obama's order to develop a plan to dissolve New York-based Citigroup in March 2009, several months after the bank had received a $45 billion taxpayer bailout, according to "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington and the Education of a President" by Ron Suskind, a former Wall Street Journal reporter."

Even more stunning, this report continues, are revelations being brought to light by the New York Times Magazine that Geithner, along with the director of the White House National Economic Council Larry Summers, formed an "unholy troika" with the banking behemoth Goldman Sachs to literally steal the entire US economic system away from Obama and the American people for the sole purpose of looting it for the benefit of a few elite bankers, politicians and other such parasites.

The power vacuum created in the White House allowing these banksters to take over was exacerbated by Summers who upon joining the Obama team declared "there's no adult in charge" thus allowing him and Geithner to be "insubordinate" to Obama and hijack the American economy for themselves and their cronies.

agt2 ObamaScare Tim Geithner Says Hes In Charge

To the damage wrought upon the American economy by Geithner and his "allies" is called nothing short of "catastrophic" as tens of millions have been thrown out of their homes, tens of millions more are jobless, and the poverty level has reached heights not seen since the days of Great Depression during the 1930's.

To any relief being seen coming for the American people before their nation is totally destroyed by these monsters it appears unlikely as the veil of oppression keeping them check shows no signs of loosening.

Even worse, new and shocking reports coming from the United States are warning that under what is called their new "Obamacare" laws, patients in US hospitals are being declared "incompetent" in mass numbers thus allowing these same hospitals to claim "guardianship" over these people and then sell of all of their assets thus reducing them to poverty.

Sadly to note are that laws such as these allowing a government to begin mass confiscation of their citizens private wealth, like those enacted by the former German Nazi Empire and Soviet Russian regimes, always presaged mass civil unrest, revolution and outright war.

In fact, just this past week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned Washington that if things aren't changed, and soon, riots could very well begin breaking out. And as quoted by the New York Daily News, Bloomberg said, "We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs. That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."

Bloomberg's predictive warning of unrest appears to be spot on as, even while these words are being written, US police forces have "locked down" the financial capitol of America on Wall Street after thousands of protesters descended upon it in a "Day of Rage" demonstration invoking Mideast rallies and calling for an end to corporate greed that favors the rich over the poor.

To how soon these types of protests riots, if not outright revolution, will spread across America it is not in our knowing, other than to note that never in the history of the world have people that have been so destroyed by their "leaders" not fought back."


So what is He(Obama)?...Does it matter????????????

A good deal of what you say there, GfS, (19 February, 4:19 am) no doubt is true, and sometimes for the reasons you state. My take on it is a lot simpler: I can easily believe - and accept - that Machiavellian means are planned and implemented, and that the populace is frequently kept in the dark about them. That is not surprising. Government is a messy business. However, I firmly believe that there are more people who wish to do good - and want to go down in history with that reputation - than there are people who are single-mindedly bent on risking the destruction of not only their own little piece of the world but the entire shebang.

I contend that few people in a government, probably any government, believe that their leaders are willing to plot long term goals that are just plain evil, but I have little doubt that the people who attend the Bilderberg groups, say, come away having become convinced of the global need for financial manipulation and even the need for 'handling' problems of rogue nations. That outcome makes sense to me.

I believe that few people are willing to put their own lives and their family's lives at risk, not to mention, this world's future at risk, in the name of profit and power. In other contexts I have read the implication that literal generations have plotted for such payback.

I think that the same people who believe that there are hosts of shadowy figures guiding the world's progress are the people who prefer to believe, and spout, conspiracies ranging from assassinations to complicit terrorism and back again. It is easy to sit back and point to various situations as proof that they demonstrate such manipulation while ignoring the many issues and events that just don't fit the scenario .

A couple of observations:

I don't remember EVER hearing President Nixon described as a statesman, true or not. The label was tentatively proffered AFTER his presidency during his rehabilitave years.

"Positions change after election"? Of course. As President Kennedy said after election, his biggest surprise was discovering how little real power presidents have.

I believe that candidates and nominees have all kinds of plans, ideas and perceptions only to discover after election that they didn't have enough information previously, including the discovery that there are competing priorities, that needs, and therefore, efforts have to be balanced, have to be initiated and presented at oppertune times.

Incidentally, "medias" and "pre-planned" ?

Obama's not black, he's mixed race. His father was either Barack Obama Sr or Frank Davis, both of whom were black. His mother was Caucasian.

But you have to judge Obama on his actions, not the color of his skin. And he's doing business with fascists. He's carrying out a watered down version of the opposition party's genocidal austerity agenda, but still, a little bit of genocide is genocide nevertheless. Obama commits fascist genocide, hence, he is a fascist.

Obama's cutting of the Supplemental Nutrition program for children and reduction of food stamps will lead to the deaths of Americans. His ethanol initiatives early in his first term have resulted in the deaths of no telling how many millions worldwide, people who depended on America's grain surplus for sustenance. His Obamacare is now shutting down American hospitals, depriving sick people of life-saving health care. He aided British Petroleum in poisoning the Gulf of Mexico--he capped their losses at 20 billion, so they really had no need to clean up after themselves. The Gulf is now polluted beyond reclaiming, its people sick and dying. He is pouring money into gun running to Mexico, drone bombing babies in the Middle East, and so on. Pick your genocide.

And his birth control initiatives are genocide. Technically, enforcing birth control on a people is genocide. And Obamacare forces birth control on us:

The international legal definition of the crime of genocide is found in Articles II and III of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide....

Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Article III: The following acts shall be punishable:
(a) Genocide;
(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
(d) Attempt to commit genocide;
(e) Complicity in genocide.

http://www.preventgenocide.org/genocide/officialtext-printerfriendly.htm

So, if you support Obamacare (with it's abortions and birth control), then you are a genocidalist, just like Obama. Article III says the acts are punishable, too, so all of you who have supported Obamacare are now complicit in genocide. You will be punished, according to international law.

Except that he has not enforced birth control on anyone--he has simply pushed for legislation that ensures it is included in insurance. That's a whole world of difference, isn't it?

Trying to twist that into enforced birth control is very similar, IMHO, to accusing Mother Teresa of "enforcing" tolerance of criminal conduct. It requires a really dedicated twisting of facts to make your point. The kind of ferocious alteration that only someone like Songwronger could come up with.

The only things you held up, for which I suppose you are proud of, for some banal reason, is your childish whining and accusatory name calling!
