Videos surface of Dems, including President Obama, praising Paul Ryan

August 14, 2012

Before Paul Ryan was pinned as an “extreme” and “radical” ideologue,  Democrats actually kind of liked the guy.

Several clips of prominent Democrats — including President Obama — praising  Ryan have surged through the Internet in the days since Mitt Romney tapped the  Wisconsin congressman as his running mate. They once called his ideas “serious”  and “honest,” which is not what the Obama campaign and its affiliates are saying  about him now.

Arguably the most robust praise came from Erskine Bowles, the White House  chief of staff under former President Bill Clinton who recently co-chaired  President Obama’s deficit-reduction committee.

In a late 2011 talk at the University of  North Carolina,  Bowles told the audience “this guy is amazing.”

“I always thought I was okay with arithmetic. This guy can run circles around  me, and he is honest, he is straightforward, he is sincere,” Bowles said. “And  the budget he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible,  straightforward, honest, serious budget.”

Bowles went on to criticize the spending plans that had come out of the Obama  White House.

North Carolina’s News & Observer  newspaper dug up the rest of that speech, finding that at one point, Bowles also  called Ryan’s controversial Medicare overhaul “a pretty radical change” that  he’d rather avoid.

But in a March 29, 2012, PBS interview, Bowles said that Ryan’s plan to offer  government payments to buy private insurance should nevertheless remain an  “option” going forward. He even said “you would want to consider” a newer  version of the Ryan plan that lets people keep traditional Medicare as an  alternative.

Bowles repeated his sentiment that Ryan is a “very smart, stable, honest,  hardworking guy.”

In 2010 on the same program, Bowles said: “I wish we had more people like  Paul who are thinkers and do their homework.”

Around the same time, Obama was similarly upbeat on Ryan’s role in the  Republican Party.

In 2010, Obama said at a Republican retreat that Ryan had  “made a serious proposal” with his budget. Obama criticized the idea of giving  “vouchers” for Medicare, but acknowledged the need to address the deficit  spending that Medicare and Medicaid fuel.

Romney, though, is pointing most prominently to Ryan’s work with Oregon Sen.  Ron Wyden to make the case that Ryan is more bipartisan than he’s made out to be  by Democrats.

Ryan and Wyden late last year drafted a new proposal for Medicare — tweaking  Ryan’s old plan by offering seniors a choice between government-subsidized  private insurance and regular Medicare.

“One of the things I like about Paul Ryan is he’s demonstrated over his years  there an ability to work across the aisle to find people who have common purpose  who may disagree on some issues but find enough common ground to get things  done,” Romney said Monday. “And, for instance, him coming together with a plan  to save Medicare for future generations, no change to current Medicare  beneficiaries or people near retirement but for future beneficiaries, he and  Sen. Wyden have come together. This is the kind of bipartisanship we need more  of, not less.”

In an interview this summer on a program called Medscape, Wyden  discussed that proposal, saying: “It really starts from the proposition that no  one would go out and buy a house without some idea of knowing what they’re  paying for.

“And much of what we’re going to have to do with Medicare is to be sure that  traditional Medicare with its purchasing power can be maintained, while at the  same time we offer private sector choices, so that the two will strengthen each  other. And in that sense, we recognize that much of the Medicare debate is not  at all ideological,” he said.

According to The Huffington Post, Wyden is pushing back on some of Romney’s  claims, particularly one that Wyden and Ryan helped “co-lead” a piece of  legislation — since they wrote a policy paper, not a bill.

Then there’s the off-mic moment caught in 2011 between  Clinton and Ryan backstage at an event.

In the cellphone footage, aired by ABC News at the time, Clinton said he  hoped a recent Democratic congressional victory wouldn’t be used “as an excuse  to do nothing.”

“My guess is it’s going to sink into paralysis is what’s going to happen,”  Ryan told the former president. “And you know the math. I mean, it’s just we  knew we were putting ourselves out there. But you’ve got to start this. You’ve  got to get out there. You’ve got to get this thing moving.”

Clinton opened the door, saying: “If you ever want to talk about it  …”

“Yeah, I’ll give you a call,” Ryan said.



Obama LIES to people of IOWA: The House PASSED a farm subsidy bill TEN DAYS AGO (Before House left for recess) and Ryan voted FOR IT.  The bill currently is languishing in the Senate under the control of Harry Reid.



“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy,always followed by a dictatorship.”

Progressivism = Communism




Progressivism = Communism

So sayeth Sam Webb, National Chairman of the Communist Party USA, and one of Obama’s biggest boosters.

Slightly over a year ago, the American people elected a young African American to the presidency and increased the Democratic majority in the Congress.  President Obama’s victory represented a repudiation of right-wing ideology, politics and economics and a setback for neoliberalism in both its conservative and liberal skins.

This victory was a long time in coming.  When it finally happened it did so not only because of the brilliance of the candidate, but also due to the broad shoulders of a people’s coalition.

The swing in the political pendulum ushered in the possibility of a new era.  After 30 years of right-wing dominance, the balance of political power tilted once again in a progressive direction.

Though that tilt wasn’t far enough for a people’s agenda to be easily enacted, political advantage did shift, and that’s no small accomplishment.

Perhaps it is obvious, but if McCain and Palin had been elected, a public option would not be in the center of the conversation — in fact, health care reform wouldn’t even be on the agenda.  The Employee Free Choice Act would be off labor’s wish list.  The stimulus package would be far smaller and unemployment much higher.  There would not be a Puerto Rican woman on the Supreme Court.  Our government would be actively supporting the coup regime in Honduras, and relations with Cuba would be frozen or worse.  Legislation extending hate crimes to include anti-gay violence would still be on the “to do” list.  And not a word would have been mentioned about the abolition of nuclear weapons.

In short, President Obama’s election has made a difference, and the progressive movement has space to dream again.  There are limits and obstacles to be sure, but what should frame our outlook are hope and possibility.

IF Obama Were A Marxist; What Would He Believe? What ARE His Plans for America?


A thought provoking piece for those that do not know about Marxism, its goals and its final outcome.

If Obama were a Marxist, what would he believe?

By Kelly O’Connell

This article offers the basic teachings of Karl Marx, so readers may judge themselves whether these might be at work influencing current Administration decisions. In the present chaotic political atmosphere, the phrase “Marxist” is tossed around without explanation. But what exactly does Marxism represent? Marx’s universe was simplistic. It presents a godless, sinister world where the powerful prey upon the weak, which can only be healed through revolution. In the resulting apocalypse, wealth is confiscated by revolutionaries so all may benefit. Private property is outlawed as enlightened leaders build a paradise of communism. But before utopia arrives, a principled assault must destroy capitalism.


Besides the above classic theory, a new approach, called Neo-Marxism, has arisen. It focuses upon cultural conversions for communism, and produces explosive fruit, such as Political Correctness, the Sexual Revolution, Global Warming, Hate Speech laws, Feminism, Multiculturalism, and Universal Health Care, etc. Critics warn reborn Marxism is exceedingly dangerous since it is delivered below the radar, and represents a devious bloodless communist assault, a polar-opposite of the violently murderous Bolshevik and Mao uprisings.


Mini-Summary: Marxism concerns wealth. God is dead, Darwin rules. The rich steal from the poor. Communist revolution will destroy capitalism, outlawing private property to establish paradise.


The following is a basic overview of some essential aspects of Marxism
Founder: German economist Karl Marx lived from 1818-1883, after the tumultuous Industrial Revolution, when modern business forms coalesced. This period saw much economic growth, yet laws protecting workers did not develop overnight. Many were damaged by unfettered business practice, and Marx reacted angrily to this in influential works like,  “Das Kapital” and the “Communist Manifesto.”


Terminology: “Marxism” is a synonym for communism, representing the legal outlawing of private property, delivering all goods to the state. Socialism is communism-lite, with government ownership of the creation and sale of goods and services, but private property is allowed. Contra, capitalism allows free economic decisions, sanctifies contracts, and allows accumulation of wealth by legally protecting private property. Societal “classes” designate levels of wealth and power. The German terms bourgeoisie are the wealthy upper class; whereas proletariat are the poor working class.


Overview: Marxists insist life is only about proper distribution of wealth. Only two classes matter: rich and poor. The poor are pure, but the rich diabolical, since they effectively steal wealth via Capitalism.  Marx stated, “Landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed.” The government must redistribute money to the poor, since God doesn’t exist to protect mankind. Workers will eventually rise up to overthrow oppressive bosses. Marx said, “The rich will do anything for the poor but get off their backs.”


After capitalism collapses, comes then socialism, but only temporarily. Finally communism is established, and all private property abolished. Peace on earth will reign as envy and war disappear when all people have the same status in society. Marx’s Communist Manifesto states, “The theory of the Communists may be summed up in a single sentence: Abolition of private property.”


Psychology: Marx believed no “human nature” exists. Ergo, persons are malleable for state use. People are not made in God’s image. Instead, human life arose accidentally. Humans are mere worker bees in the hive, who can be eliminated when not wanted or needed. Only the group matters. Marx was infatuated with science and Darwin’s new theory of Evolution, seeing everywhere proof of godless survival of the fittest. Writing partner, Engels, claimed at Marx’s funeral, “Just as Darwin developed the law of the development of organic matter, so did Marx discover the law of human history.”


History: The Marxist view of history is fatalistic and magically progressive. It borrows Philosopher Hegel’s “dialectic,” teaching human society automatically improves over time. Marx believed a variant of biblical catastrophism, where an inevitable worldwide uprising of the poor demand Apocalyptic revolution. When communism arrives, history ends.


Religion: Marx taught God doesn’t exist. Religion is a lie, a tranquilizer for the masses. It cannot be tolerated since it’s delusional, another way the powerful exploit the poor (Lenin sanctioned every attack against Christians, except mass extermination). It follows that no soul exists or any category of “sin.” Morality is defined by how any action affects achieving or maintaining communism.


Influential scholar Eric Voegelin, in “New Science of Politics,” argues persuasively Marxism is a kind of reborn pagan Gnosticism. He claims modern liberalism seeks a heaven on earth, achieved via an elitist sect using intellectual pseudo-enlightenment to herd poor souls to salvation.  Prof. Igal Halfin makes the same claim in, “From Darkness to Light, Class, Consciousness, and Salvation in Revolutionary Russia.”


Economics: Marx struggled to develop a concise, positive economic model. He preferred vilifying capitalism. Boss and employee were “master and slave.” Marx loathed the wealthy and their riches, stating, “I do not like money, money is the reason we fight.” He believed simply overthrowing capitalism would jump-start paradise. He claimed that given capitalism’s inherent instability, and immoral nature, government must lead via a command economy.


Marx was infatuated with scientific certainty, relentlessly claiming his theories were as rigorously proved as chemistry or physics. Of course, this reveals a fetish for the Enlightenment cult of measurable progress, as opposed to any empirical breakthrough. Premier Marxist scholar Richard Pipes, in “Communism,” writes “Marxism was thus dogma masquerading as science.”


Government: Marx spoke favorably of democracy, but called for dictatorship. The lack of natural law theory, or democracy means Marxist governments essentially revived classical paganism. No person has any rights versus state action. The individual is nothing, the group everything. Politicians, and the state itself become gods, illustrated by the massive cults of personality all Marxist states erected.


Legal Doctrine: Marxism produces no real constitution since the legal process is sublimated to state will, allowing no fixed foundation. According to P. H. Vigor’s, “A Guide to Marxism,” law itself is an upper class tool created so the wealthy can keep power, but is no societal good, in itself. Peter H. Juviler’s “Revolutionary Law and Order; Politics and Social Change in the USSR,” claims no record exists of any Russian prosecution ever ending in an innocent verdict.


So Marxist legal theory is essentially antinomian, and the judicial system exists only to help protect state interest. In this sense, a Marxist Bill of Rights would be an absurd contradiction. The astonishing toll of murdered  innocents in China and the USSR has no logical explanation except for profound defects in Marxist doctrine. Genocide expert Prof. R.J. Rummel estimates some 200 million souls were exterminated by 20th century communist governments.


Openness to Dialogue: Marxism is an ideology of pure secular dogma, hermetically sealed as any religious creed. Marx considered his theories proved, by definition. Merely to question his ideas was a diabolical attack against Truth itself. Marx said his critics used… “not a scalpel but a weapon. Its object…not to refute but to destroy.”


Revolution: Marxism is a violently revolutionary doctrine. Marx claimed capitalism’s Armageddon was inevitable, but followers should bear arms to hasten change.  Since the rich will never give up their capital voluntarily, it must be taken by force. After this, the arduous task of rebuilding society begins.  Lenin’s “New Man” is created by education. Those who don’t adapt can be eliminated to purify the whole. But capitalism must be destroyed before healing can occur.


Neo-Marxist Innovations: As Lenin in Russia, and Mao in China launched Communist revolts, the prophesied global apocalypse seemed imminent. But the staggering failure of Marxist theory to make productive societies, coupled with the West’s relentless growth forced an intellectual crisis.


Twentieth century leftist progressives developed a Neo-Marxism less warlike and more psychologically attractive by combining Marx with Freud, creating a highly sexualized socialism. The Frankfurt School were academic Marxists who escaped Frankfurt, Germany to avoid Hitler’s wrath. Relocated to the U.S., they successfully infused Marxism into American universities. For example, “Political Correctness” is a Frankfurt movement, and the first modern use of this phrase is found in Chairman Mao’s “Little Red Book,” according to Geoffrey Hughes’ “Political Correctness: A History of Semantics.”


Marxist theories now dominate Western universities. Movements like Race Theory, Feminism, Gay Rights, Modern Art, Critical Theory, Animal Rights, Gender Studies, abortion advocacy, Deconstruction, penal reform, Hate Crimes legislation, etc are all informed by Frankfurt scholarship.  Redefined Marxism has produced spectacularly disruptive results. Some argue Obama’s election is a direct result of cultural Marxism’s success. Universal Health Care is another Marxist holy grail. The USSR had free medical treatment, notable for a staggering lack of basic supplies, horribly outdated methods, and horrifically filthy conditions.


Cloward-Piven Scheme for Planned Catastrophe: Ominously,  in 1966, Columbia University scholars Richard Cloward and Frances Piven published a theory outlining methods to destroy a healthy capitalist economy and force communist revolution. This eliminates capitalism by making impossible state budgetary demands, thereby bringing government insolvency.


Critics claim Obama’s budget is an example of the Cloward-Pivin model of planned economic destruction of a functioning capitalist economy via sabotage. Outlays are so gigantic, and so dreadfully misspent, that our financial infrastructure will soon collapse. A trillion dollar tax increase and spending rising by $10 trillion dollars over the next decade is probable. If so, government default will occur, only offset by mass currency printing, which will then bankrupt the general populace. The middle class will fall. Chronic inflation will result, causing America to lose its sterling credit rating. Global financial players must dump the dollar as it swan-dives. Then, hyperinflation will accelerate, and the era of superpower America will end.


Would the above plan be Marxist? Consider the following statement regarding USSR dictator Vladimir Lenin’s opinion on the topic, from famed economist John Maynard Keynes’ book “The Economic Consequences of the Peace”:


“Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”


The first American experiment in Marxism will not occur under Obama, if those are his beliefs. Instead, William Bradford established the Massachusetts Plymouth Colony in 1620, using a charter creating a common granary. After two years of socialist hardship and near starvation, the colonists opted for capitalism. Afterwards, they celebrated a Thanksgiving to God for saving them, despite their economic illiteracy.


Marx observed, “…all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice…the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.” Let us hope, given astonishingly murderous attempts by Lenin, Mao and Stalin to create the paradise Marxism offers but never delivers, we will not subject ourselves to the farce of the second-coming of an American economic, political and human rights disaster.


End note:


The saddest aspect of this entire scenario is that those who believed him most will be the least prepared to handle the crisis. I firmly believe that outside of a handful of true progressive/socialists in congress, the majority of liberal/moderates thought they were doing the right thing, and that by toeing the party line would receive their just reward in the form of poitical payback. Little do they comprehend that once Barack Obama and his cabal have gotten what they need from them, they will be thrown on the ash heap like the rest of us.


After Communist subversion and takeover; the ones in Congress (Progressive Democrats and Blue Dogs) will probably “disappear” due to the fact they know too much.

The “octopus” arms of Marxism are enveloping our branches of government………
