Divide and Conquer


John Ransom presents a point against the Great Dividers and the Great Disconnect at Townhall.com, [photo above] a sort of follow up of Obama’s latest PR SOTU speech.

The thing that irritated me the most is the extent of applause as the Great Divider once again laid out plans and put the blame on GOP Republicans for his administration’s corruption and incompetency, added to his progressive socialist agenda. But as David Stoakes pointed out in his recent article:

President Obama had some typical applause lines the other night during his State of the Union address, but evidence abounds that there is less and less applause these days outside the Beltway for his performance and policies. Some of that is normal as a presidency moves toward lame duck status, but in Obama’s case it seems to be more pronounced.

Instead of reading socialist-communist Alinsky books, BH Obama should have been reading When the Cheering Stopped [1964] by Gene Smith about Woodrow Wilson. It was Wilson who had written an essay on how irrelevant the US Constitution was in a “modern” world, with no principle limits on government over individuals and individual rights are not part of natural law or belonging to a progressive government. We can also thank Woodrow Wilson for the Federal Reserve system and the income tax. Wilson’s progressive political science is a predecessor to the likes of Clinton and Obama. It contrives straight out of the Marxist philosophy

that all idea of a limitation of public authority by individual rights be put out of view.

To Wilson, as was adopted by Bush I and Bush II, the world was to be placed into a new age, a world of a New World Order, a leader of organized labor, rooted by the Socialist Party in the 1912 Presidential Election. A wave of progressiveness had swept the country in the early decades of the 20th century, which was gained because of the Republican Party split between H. Taft and T. Roosevelt. Because of his ability to keep the US out of the First World War, he was popular in his first term, which earned him a Nobel Peace Prize in 1919 despite being forced to get involved in the war “over there”. It also was an opportunity to repay France for their help in the American Revolution, which the symbolic phrase “Lafayette we are here!” became famous.

Wilson was the maverick Democrat who eradicated the significance of individual rights, wrote and initiated the idea of eliminating the separation of powers, which in turn unleashed unlimited majority party control of government being a major agenda.

Also being inspired by FDR and his New Deal politics, President Obama promised to give Americans a new way of saving for retirement (remember the promise of being able to keep your insurance and doctors), that and other declarations in which he infamously and blatantly stated:

“Now, I’m hoping that Congress goes along with this, but I’m not going to wait for Congress. I could do more with Congress, but I’m not going to not do anything without Congress, not when it’s about the basic security and dignity of American workers.”

He dubbed his plan “MyRA, another Orwellian government scheme, as he explained:

And what it is, it’s a new type of savings bond that we can set up without legislation that encourages Americans to begin to build a nest egg.”

He also promised the opposite of the first statement:

“Now, I’m hoping that Congress goes along with this, but I’m not going to wait for Congress. I could do more with Congress, but I’m not going to not do anything without Congress, not when it’s about the basic security and dignity of American workers.”

Sorry, Mr. Obama, you cannot stimulate an economy by giving away free stuff, pushing the national debt to an all-time high, raising and figuring out new ways to tax the people (those who pay taxes), or throw out constitutional law and replace it with American-style Marxism.

In he world of scams, this president is the king of flim-flam.

Like what VP Bodin told everyone – government spending boosts aggregate demand and stimulates the economy. Totally a Keynesian economic theory.

Meanwhile, the EPA is carrying out the insanity of “climate solutions” sponsored by a government that already wasted millions of dollars into “Green” industry that failed. To those progressives that means putting people to work that have not had jobs for some time. Government can only create jobs by growing its bureaucracy – and that always, as history shows us, ends with little or no rights and liberties and will be the end of our constitutional republic.

The private sector can do all that has been promised better than progressive socialist that have commandeered our government.
