Karl Marx And Liberal Fascism

March 31, 2009

You abolish your responsibilities, your surrender your rights.

Finally got a copy of Jonah Glodberg’s book “Liberal Fascism”. Safe to say Goldberg stitches together all the tenets of Communism, Fascism, NAZI-ism, Socialism, and packages it all in chunks that then make it easy to understand the strains, and the minimal difference between them all. The distance from there to today’s Liberal Fascism is short indeed.

He credits the start of American Fascism to Woodrow Wilson, the very same who is responsible for the defunct “Second U.S. Constitution”. The following quote is an example of Wilson’s disregard for the US Constitution.

Justly revered as our great Constitution is, it could be stripped off and thrown aside like a garment, and the nation would still stand forth in the living vestment of flesh and sinew, warm with the heart-blood of one people, ready to recreate constitutions and laws. … Woodrow Wilson

Justly revered, but not by Wilson. He really did want to cast the founder’s Constitution aside, writing “no doubt a great deal of nonsense has been talked about the inalienable rights of the individual, and a great deal that was mere vague sentiment and pleasing speculation has been put forward as fundamental principle…” And the rights contained in it.

Wilson undoubtedly helped along the process of building the modern statist liberalism.

Liberal Fascism left me with a big picture point that has stuck with me. It is this, Goldberg likens the competitiveness between the ideologies in this socialist basket as jealousy and contempt for practitioners of the others. Even though the ideological distance between them is mere degrees of the same. It’s interesting to think that the various strains of socialism, try to differentiate themselves by being vicious enemies of the practitioners of what should be moral equivalents.  For instance, Mussolini’s Fascists abhorred NAZIs, Hitler’s NAZI’s disdained Communism …

Yet all the practitioners of all mostly agreed on the big things, like the level of state control over economic matters, the state should run the economies, differing only in the details of the means. The differentiation comes down to NAZIs were racists, Fascists were corporationists, Communists were collectivists. All were militarists and socialists.

It would seem the modern statist liberal has used that hatred to try and say things like NAZIs are right wing socialist. When in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

A central theme through Obama’s rhetoric is the need to return the wealth to the rightful owners, the workers. While KArl MArx was a socialist, he is most often associated with Communism. In fact, Communism was one of those ‘others’ to Karl Marx that Glodberg talks to in his book. A couple of quotes from Karl Marx for reference:

Capitalist production, therefore, develops technology, and the combining together of various processes into a social whole, only by sapping the original sources of all wealth – the soil and the labourer. Karl Marx

Democracy is the road to socialism. Karl Marx

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism. Karl Marx

Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains. Karl Marx

The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property. Karl Marx

There is a specter haunting Europe, the specter of Communism. Karl Marx


Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor

March 31, 2009

PO2 (EOD2) (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) Mike Monsoor, a Navy EOD Technician, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for jumping on a grenade in Iraq, giving his life to save his fellow Seals. (Notice: Mike was not a Navy SEAL, he was EOD. He gave his life to save a group of Navy SEALS.)

During Mike Monsoor’s funeral in San Diego , as his coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery , SEAL’s were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two’s, with the coffin moving up the center. As Mike’s coff in passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin.

The slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the coffin arrived grave side,  it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it.

This was a fitting send-off for a warrior hero.

This should be front-page news instead of the crap we see every day.

Since the media won’t make this news, I choose to make it news by forwarding it .

I am very proud of our military. If you are proud too, please pass this on.  If not then rest assured that these fine men and women of our military will continue to serve and protect.

God Bless our Troops

President Obama, the Scientist

March 29, 2009

President Obama says this global warming hoax is real. Really, did Al Gore tell him to use global warming to tax the pants off, enslave the people? Or is he working a deal with AL Gore for cut rate carbon credits? When you consider this comes from someone who hasn’t even run a lemonade stand, the deep thought expressed is overwhelming. As you will see, saying nothing, while making like you are saying something important, is a patented trademark of Obama.

President Obama has weighed in:

“I actually think the science around climate change is real. It is potentially devastating. … If you look at the flooding that’s going on right now in North Dakota, and you say to yourself, ‘If you see an increase of 2 degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there,’ that indicates the degree to which we have to take this seriously.”

I actually think the science around climate change is real.

The science is real? — Sure, science is real. That that predicts man made CO2 driven global warming, not so much. Shall I say, simply put, prove it is real. Shouldn’t be hard to do, I would think that President would be enough pull for them to spin those satellites around and show us the proof. Show us how the atmosphere behaves in real life, just like the models predict it should.

One thing for sure, computer models are not real.

It is potentially devastating.

— sure lots of things are potentially devastating and the potential is here. But, Earth could be struck by a meteor tonight and that’s all folks. You want devastation, that’s devastation.

‘If you see an increase of 2 degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there,

— Well for starters, probably nothing would happen. If it’s 20 degrees, raising the temperature to 22 degrees isn’t likely to do anything. But the problem they are having is cold, snow and ice clogging the drains, not flaming the prairies.

’ that indicates the degree to which we have to take this seriously.”

— Actually, that doesn’t indicate anything.

TOTUS needs to work harder. Next time try and make much more cogent succinct arguments and direct your time at real facts instead of arm waving.

The fact that most of the area had over twice the normal snowfall, and it keeps coming, seems to have escaped scrutiny in the rush to say the computer models are real.

Tell me Mr Obama, are computer models real science? Because that’s all the proof you have.

Hillary And The Lies She Tells

March 28, 2009

Going to need better liars these days: I just heard Hillary say that she was sad the AW 1994 expired in 2004 and the huge murder rate in Mexico tracks gun sales from the USA. So I said, I wonder, what happened to the murder rate in Mexico when the AW ban expired in 2004:

2000 — 14.11
2001 — 13.94
2002 — 13.04
2003 — 17.5
2004 — 11.1 <<===== AW ban expired
2005 — 10.6
2006 — 10.8

So the big year was 2004 and, wait for it, wait, a little longer. Looks like that bogus argument goes up in smoke as just so much Clinton hogwash. The murder rate is dropping, more guns less crime? It’s not murder that is the problem, it is the drug gangs fighting each other and the Mexican government for control of the cash flow from the illegal drug trade.

Now we have politicians lying to us in droves, about near everything.


Hiding The Truth

March 26, 2009

Mexican drug gangs, Buying Grenades And Rocket Launchers in the USA — Oh really.

I find these kinds of twisted liberal stories best read in the foreign press, that report what is actually being said, rather than what in tried to be conveyed as having been said. Take this little bit from the London Telegraph from Mrs BJ Clinton’s Mexico trip. Ostensibly she talked about Americans buying illegal drugs causing the drug war in Mexico.

Yes it’s probably true, that Americans who want drugs are causing the market to respond and supply drugs. A bad situation. But the war on drugs has been used often enough to restrict American’s freedoms, it’s high time we gave it up. Legalize them, and punish the user who get stoned in public, drive cars and endanger other people.

Define Propaganda Failure

March 25, 2009

When you think of the tens of billions of dollars spent by government trying to prove the man caused global warming lie, and the near zero investment to try and scientifically counter the lie, you have to wonder. In a recently released Gallup survey, the biggest most spectacular failure was the scare mongering from the global warming alarmists. And it is really spectacular.

Water Pollution Americans’ Top Green Concern

Extinction of plant and animal species and global warming are of great concern to just over a third of Americans. However, since more Americans express little to no worry about global warming than say this about extinction, global warming is clearly the environmental issue of least concern to them. In fact, global warming is the only issue for which more Americans say they have little to no concern than say they have a great deal of concern.

About Those Inherited Deficits

March 25, 2009

If you examine the chart from the Heritage Foundation above, you realize that something else other than inherited budget deficits is going on.

When the first line of questions at your presidential news conference is along the lines of trusting government, you know we are in deep trouble.
