Obama’s Politics Are More Insidious Than Socialism

By THOMAS SOWELL

June 11, 2012

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 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.

Is Center For American Progress the “Birthplace” of All Legislation under Obama? Is the CAP the “Shadow Party” Running Parallel to our Own U.S. Government Ready to Take Over in a Crisis?

*****************************

Is John Podesta of the Center for American Progress Inflicting the “Project Podesta” Ideology/Tactic on Obama? What Americans Should Know…..

Excerpt:

Does any of the following sound familiar America?****

Podesta’s most lasting contribution to the leftist cause came through his promotion of a strategy that White House aides dubbed “Project Podesta.” This was a system that enabled the Clintons to push through unpopular policies that neither Congress nor the American people wanted. Its implementation marked a dramatic tilt in the balance of power, giving the executive branch an unprecedented ability to force its will on the legislative branch.

Project Podesta enabled the President to bypass Congress through the use of executive orders, presidential decision directives, White-House-sponsored lawsuits, vacancy appointments to high federal office, selective regulatory actions against targeted corporations, and a host of other extra-constitutional tactics.

In short, Podesta showed the Clintons that they could gain by force what they might fail to achieve through legislation. “Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kind of cool,” quipped White House aide Paul Begala to The New York Times on July 5, 1998, in response to questions about the Clintons’ growing disdain for the will of Congress.

Project Podesta’s most ambitious exercise was the war on Yugoslavia which Clinton launched by executive order on April 13, 1999, in defiance of the U.S. Congress and the United Nations.

When US News and World Report first revealed the existence of Project Podesta on November 1, 1999, two Congressional hearings convened to investigate the Clintons’ abuse of executive power. But the investigators issued no reports and took no action.

Barack Obama and the Enemies Within

by Trevor Loudon

A history about those who advise, mentor, and operate behind the throne of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. From early childhood to the present day the President chose to keep his personal life a secret. Those who surround him fall into a wide category of radicals, marxists, communists, and Americans who have joined together in a coordinated effort to overthrow capitalism and the Republic of the United States of America.

  1. He is Kaiser Sousay. We all know it. And appears to be protected from on high by the prince of darkness, and his minnion and treasurer, Soros.

    Colony14.net. Hundreds of others saying the same thing. All of the exposing in the world is not working. That means all network media, and associated cable networks have the same head of the same snake.

    Except FOX. Which is being hit hard in advertising in attempts to shut it up and shut it down.

    What I wonder the most–how can a US military within the Pentagon, sworn to protect the US from communism, now happily operate under this communist trojan horse. If you remember, and I wish someone could find it because I can’t, he campaigned speaking of his skin, that although he was not “white”, his mother and family were “mid-western Baptists, like many of you…(dumb white people who I will talk into voting for me to appease the White Guilt we have bred into their pathetic weak minds for decades…)

    Then, if it couldn’t get any worse, the White Americans vote in a Kenyan blooded son of a hardcore Marxist African and a totally communist aethiest mother and accept this man as if he were really Larry Elder. Or of that cloth.

    Romantic Poet, I worry about people like you who are putting their lives on the line. He is not only a total Trojan Horse, but a Trojan Horse situation on steroids. And backed it seems by the U.S. military leaders as a unit. This does not bode well. I guess if Glen Beck is still alive, it is not as bad as I think it is getting. Yet. Nevertheless, I pray for you.

    It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a Free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defense of it.

    The fear to speak out and/or STAND UP is what gives the likes of Obama and the progressives power. Be not afraid of the unknown. Fight FOR your own liberty and freedom.

    P.S. Glenn Beck is alive and well. Does his own uncensored programs now at GBTV.
