Is Obama Working to Nationalize the Farm Industry?
Department of Transportation regulations on farm equipment
In Late May, the DOT proposed a rule change for farm equipment, and if it this allowed to take effect, it will place significant regulatory pressure on small farms and family farms all across America – costing them thousands of dollars and possibly forcing many of them out of business. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), part of the Department of Transportation (DOT), wants new standards that would require all farmers and everyone on the farm to obtain a CDL (Commercial Drivers License) in order to operate any farming equipment. The agency is going to accomplish this by reclassifying all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs).
(It is also important to note here that DOT Secretary Ray LaHood holds a seat on the newly created White House Rural Council. A powerful group whose members have ties to George Soros and The Center For American Progress.)
The move by the DOT appears to be “legislation through regulation.” By reclassifying all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Vehicles, the federal government will now be able to claim regulatory control over the estimated 800,000 farm workers in America, at the same time, overriding the rights of the states.
Obama’s Attacks on the Family Farm Come Straight From Marxist Handbook
By Jim Hoft
April 26, 2012
Barack Obama is attacking the family farm – an American tradition.
The administration’s Department of Labor implemented new regulations to restrict children from working on the family farm. This is despite the fact that farm accidents and injuries have decreased over the past several years.
For generations children and adults have worked together on the family farm.
Those days are over.
Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced the Preserving America’s Family Farm Act, to prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from enacting its controversial proposed restrictions that would ban children from working on family farms.
Recently, Senator John Thune spoke out against the Obama Administration’s proposed labor rules for youth who work on farms and ranches on the Senate floor.

So why would Barack Obama attack farmers?
Attacking family farms is nothing new. It comes straight from the Marxist handbook.
Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh at Canada Free Press reported:
The Marxist-Leninist dogma said, “A small property generates capitalism day by day, minute by minute, spontaneous, and in mass proportions.” The small-time farmer feeding his family, with a little surplus, was seen as an individual member of the bourgeoisie, requiring squashing.
The commie’s strategy was to turn farmers against the richer farmers through class envy and class warfare and it worked quite well…
…Collectivization was completed in 1962 with medal awarding ceremonies. The chaotic and mismanaged agricultural system under communists experienced such a sustained crisis between 1948-1962, that the effects are still felt today, twenty-three years after the communists lost power.
Can this happen in America? Can we lose our land and property to someone else deemed more deserving by constant leftist propaganda? Can we lose our land to wilderness because environmentalists in control force us to move? Or is it already happening peacefully and silently while the population is being soothed with “hope and change”, lies and fabrications on a daily basis?
Americans are asleep, ignorant, mesmerized, doped up, or so corrupt that they no longer care what happens to their fellow citizens, their children’s future, the future of our country, so long as they have a cushy job, mindless television shows, sports, a pay check, perhaps bribes, comfortable homes, club memberships, vacations, and most of all, intoxicating power and control.
Redistributing wealth is the only thing communists know how to do brutally and stealthily well. Those who do not pay taxes or hold down jobs protest that it is their right to steal someone else’s money. They’ve even come up with a new euphemism, they are not stealing the wealth of producers, they are merely forcing them to “share the burden.”
But it is stealing! Every moment of time that we must work to earn money and pay taxes that are then spent by our out-of-control government on non-producers is a moment too long that we are slaves to someone else, a moment of time that is stolen from our limited time on earth.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION CRACKS DOWN ON KIDS FARMING
April 25, 2012
Farm kids are beginning to rebel against the Obama administration’s proposal to restrict their freedom when they work on their farms. The Department of Labor proposal, first foisted on the nation by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis last August 31, would apply child-labor laws to farms, and prevent children under 18 from “storing, marketing and transporting farm product raw materials … prohibited places of employment would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock.”
The government isn’t satisfied with just that, however; they would also cancel the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, and take over themselves with a 90-hour federal government training course.
Some kids who grew up on farms are rightly angry. Rossie Blinson, who started showing sheep at age 4 and cattle at age 8, said, “It’s been very important. I learned a lot of responsibility being a farm kid … the main concern I have is that it would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they’re not at their parents’ house.”
John Weber, who worked summers on his relatives’ farm and is now an agricultural major who raises steers he bought in high school, asserted:
“I started working on my grandparent’s and uncle’s farms for a couple of weeks in the summer when I was 12. I started spending full summers there when I was 13. The work ethic is a huge part of it. It gave me a lot of direction and opportunity in my life. If they do this it will prevent a lot of interest in agriculture. It’s harder to get a 16 year-old interested in farming than a 12 year old.”
Weber, speaking of the loans he took out to purchase the steers, said, “Under these regulations I wouldn’t be allowed to do that.”
It is all too typical of the elitist, effete big-city types who run the Obama administration to interfere in rural American life. But the young people who grow up working on farms know horse manure when they smell it.
Karl Marx was paid by the “League of the Just” (later named the “Communist League”) in 1847 to write the Communist Manifesto, and paid again to rewrite it in 1848. The Manifesto was intended to incite violent revolution, was a recipe for tyranny itself, and was later used as propaganda (a ‘glorious goal’ to believe in) to blind followers to the realities of the brutal dictatorships that oppressed all workers and slaughtered millions under Communist rule. Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and Mao’s “Little Red Book” served similar evil and deadly purposes. Many dictators throughout history and today attempt to disguise their tyranny with fancy labels and phony philosophies to make slavery seem somehow just and essential–another example was the earlier doctrine of “divine rule of kings.” These 10 steps are just a part of the Manifesto, the full text of which can be found on the web.
Western nations including the United States have gradually implemented virtually all of Marx’s 10 key steps toward creating a dictatorship. What are some examples can you find? Americans would be wise to study the “Ten Planks” and demand that the President and Congress abolish all laws, regulations and agencies which govern these (and all other) unconstitutional seizures of power.
Communism was never intended to free man, but to enslave him; indeed the Communist Manifesto promised a “dictatorship of the proletariat” and history proved it always ended up slaughtering and enslaving millions of the proletariat.
Karl Marx’s “10 Planks” to seize power and destroy freedom:
Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.
A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.
Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.
Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.
Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.
Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.
Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.
Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.
Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.
Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children’s Factory Labor in it’s Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.
Of important mention here is Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, which appears to be President Obama’s governing textbook. Much has been written about Obama’s (and Hillary Clinton’s) study and use of Alinsky’s strategies for seizing power without concern for ethics or the harm caused. Read the book (try Amazon or eBay)–study it and you will better understand Obama’s governing strategy and anticipate his actions. Marx and Alinsky both shared a similar desire to seize power at any cost, hence the listing on this page. It should be of little surprise that Alinsky dedicated “Rules for Radicals” to the devil.
