Fascism in the Obama administration (An old post that I hadn't published)

I found this while browsing the net, be sure to read the entire thing.

Obama Taking Us On Path To Fascism

By HERB DENENBERG, For The Bulletin
Monday, October 26, 2009
During the last presidential campaign, I said there was a light whiff of fascism coming from the Obama campaign. That was based on its habit of improperly trying to repress criticism of every kind. Example: A Chicago radio station was planning on airing a critic of President Obama, who was publicizing the candidate’s close association with terrorist Bill Ayres. The Obama campaign organized a call-in campaign to flood the station with calls and prevent the critic from being heard. Anther example: The Obama campaign warned that any critics in Missouri would be subjected to prosecution there if they voiced criticism that was not true. There was a "Barack Obama Truth Squad” made up of prosecutors and sheriffs to keep critics in line, promising rebuttals and prosecution in appropriate cases (NewsBusters, September 29, 2008).

Now that whiff has turned into a strong stench of fascism, as the Obama Administration uses the vast resources of the federal government to squelch criticism and silence and intimidate critics. Here are some of the recent examples of that:

• The administration has organized a concerted campaign to marginalize, demonize, de-legitimize and destroy Fox Cable News simply because it, virtually alone among broadcast outlets, originates strong criticism of the Obama Administration and asks tough questions about what it is trying to do. Obama spokesmen, including Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Senior Advisor David Axelrod have said, in effect, that Fox is just an arm of the Republican Party and is not a legitimate news organization. Obama spokesmen say the station has a perspective. There are several answers to this. First, its news programs (as opposed to its opinion and commentary programs featuring the likes of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck) pre- sent both sides of issues in a fair and balanced manner, and that has been confirmed by the survey of a respected research organization.

• When a health insurance company that marketed Medicare policies tried to warn its policyholders that Obamacare would hurt seniors’ insurance programs, the Department of Health and Human Services issued on a gag order on such communications with policyholders. It also said that the warning was misleading, which it was not. The gag order was since revoked, but its initial promulgation tells you something about the mentality of the White House and its attitude toward criticism.

The Electoral College

I've been hearing (reading on the blogs and in the news) that the electoral college needs to be replaced; maybe. but it doesn't need to go to a direct popular vote because as Jawa Report put it..it would become a vote of urban vs rural....all a candidate has to do is to appeal to the population centers of the country and he's elected.  NO, what the problem is, is the assignment of electors to the vote for the president.  The cry we've always heard is one man...one vote (how well does that work out for you with voter fraud?)  Here's my idea...One state, One vote...the candidate running for president must win the majority of votes in each of  26 states (a simple majority of the states plus one) to be elected. The size, the population of the state doesn't matter....candidates must campaign in each and every state to secure that state's approval...the people will also feel that their vote counts and be more apt to get out and vote on election day.

The coming revolution

After Obama: The Coming Reign of Incredibly Small Government

By Andrew K. Boyle
A national election always triggers an onslaught of political books claiming that the next several decades will belong to the party which just swept into power.  These books are laughably wrong, usually being discarded and discredited by the next election night.  This election is no different, and books are being finished right now which explain why events in history will be marked henceforth as Before Obama and After Obama.  There are other books being edited currently which will be the obituary of the GOP, claiming that Barack Obama killed the great elephant on his way back from killing Osama bin Laden.  The byproducts of both responses to the 2012 election will in short order be discarded, but for reasons far outside politics.

The future is dramatically conservative, in a very uncomfortable and dark way.  This conservative future is inevitable -- not because of political events, but because of societal trajectory.  If political events are man taking flight, the conservative future is characteristically similar to gravity. 
The future is one of incredibly small government -- not in the virtuous, self-reliant Republic sort of way, but in the tragic "government crashes into the January fiscal cliff and explodes" sort of way.  The grand programs instituted under the guise of moral superiority will abruptly end amongst the shrapnel of audacious government meeting the rocky cliffs of nature's reality.  If entitlements and social programs are tinkered with to conform to budget realities, it is cheap and easy to condemn them as mean or racist or some such thing within the political arena.  If these programs stop abruptly because they have been purposefully grown to ridiculously unsustainable levels, those who refused to scale back well-intentioned programs when offered the chance will be responsible for the primitive violence engulfing our cities.  The new and less noble beasts prowling the once-peaceful streets will be the creation of insane spending and decades of dishonest and vain politics.

I shouldn't be saying this, I worry about my grand children and great grand children to come, but I really hope the coming revolution is a "hot one". As Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to James Madison, " A Little Rebellion Now and Then Is A Good Thing." I think it's time...

On Tax increases

I've  been reading a lot  from those inside the beltway Republican office holders, power brokers and"Conservative Media " types who say that the Republicans now in office should just go along with the up coming Obama tax increases. NO Way should any Republican ever, EVER vote for an Obama tax increase...either vote against it or abstain..let the Democrats OWN ALL TAX INCREASES.

Catch your breath grab a bite to eat and a drink.

OK, I get it already. The Democrats won Tuesday’s election, I won’t say “fair and square” (I’m not convinced of that), but  decisively.

Me neither..I'm convinced there was so much voter fraud going on that there was no way Mitt could have won....Time to sharpen our swords...clean our guns (metaphorically speaking..right?) and prepare ourselves for 2014..take back the Senate.

........ the liberals are feeling their oats and think now is the  time to recapture their media monopoly. (Expect legislation controlling conservative speech to be introduced very soon.)

It's funny the left are always the ones talking about banned books and forbidden speech, yet they are the ones always wanting to silence conservatives. To quote William F. Buckley Jr.,  “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”.....there's that word offended again..why are they so easy to offend?

It’s always darkest before the dawn, as the saying goes. Let the barbarians dance on the walls and have their moment. This fight isn’t over.
The time is coming to "Pay The Piper"

New contraction

I had considered starting to call the progressives 'Proggies' but then I remember my days in the Army..I think 'Pogey' is a much more appropriate and descriptive contraction

Libs are libs..maybe, maybe not

Your liberal friends aren’t as liberal as they think they are. Most--not all--actually share what you believe about freedom, responsibility, and limited government. They just will not bring themselves to acknowledge their values openly, or vote for them. But they put those same conservative values into practice every day, whether they admit it or not.

I don't know about this one, Joel Pollack hasn't met my friends and some relatives.

  It is well past time for conservatives--especially those of us in blue states and cities--to start professing the founding values, to “get in their faces,” as Obama said, and make the political personal. It’s the only way back.

The thing I noticed; as I said before I was posting on Facebook, our progressive friends and relatives contacted my wife and tried to start arguments between us...

People have said we need a new Reagan yes we do, but we also need a new William F. Buckley Jr. to  pin back the ears of the progies.

Back to blogging again

Well, wasn't this presidential election more fun the we've had back in 2008? We conservative HAVE to build a bigger and better alternative media...we have to be able to counter the lies, the hypocrisy and the fifth column activities that the current "Waste Stream Media"  or "Ministry of Truth" provides to the Democrat/Socialist/Progressive party that is represented by an ass.

I was micro-blogging on Facebook...but since election night I have been vilified by friends and relatives and  un-friended  by some.  No loss!  I think the big thing was when I compared Liberals/Progressives in general to Muslim extremists; I made comments and they took offense to them....I guess I'm not supposed to post anything that they might find offensive. Do you think the Libs are taking lessons from the Muslims or vice versa?  I think I'm going to find some cartoons that are very offensive to liberals, post them here and line to them and see if I can provoke a reaction to them...Maybe they will riot in front of my house bearing signs calling out for my beheading..I really think we need to push them..HARD!!
