Political Commentary & Cartoons

Sunday, July 10, 2011


We live in a complicated world with too much to do in our own lives and the politicians are making an incredible mess because we trusted them to take care of running our country. Benjamin Franklin warned US that this would happen if we allowed political office to be a paid position. There are dangers in having only those wealthy enough to support themselves have the power as well because that would give them the ability to increase their power. This is not a solution to that issue, but, rather a warning that we are giving up our ability to deal with that DANGER.

Americans became disenchanted with capitalism in the '30s and the outcome of their decision to leave a Free Enterprise America for a better life is recounted in The Foresake-An American Tragedy in Stalin's Russia. Why would we allow the power of government with the current technology to increase to the point that it could do whatever the elite wanted to do and the people became powerless?


I received an email dated 07/10/2011 which I have not been able to confirm, but it is indicative of the FCC push for control of the internet and the attack rather than debate tactics of this government. It would be far more productive to have open debates about the issues with fact checking to critique the debate at the end, not the opinion of pundants.

There are enough people aware of the Bernay's, Alinsky and Cloward-Piven tactics that the class warfare by an administration with the !HUGIST! political warchest ever funded, Hollywood production campaign, an inaugeral which was beyond imagination requiring an airport be dedicated to PRIVATE JETs for the ?poor? people who supported Obama to attend the inaugeral, the Goldman-Sachs/Fannie Mae/Gore Group joint investment in CCX, a climate gate scandal, GE receiving an EPA exemption to have an advantage over the competition, the intimidation of people investing their money for their retirement (not depending upon the government totally) being intimidated by Obama himself as well as his RAT squad (Rent A Thug)to relinquish their legal priority to name a few things.

Think about the two government recent involvements in private enterprise forcing bad business choices which weaken the business. Does this encourage a business to remain in America and employ American workers or does it clearly state that the goverment doesn't care whether they do well, much less survive, or not. The Great Depression has some examples of this same government imposition of the government mandates putting businesses into the graveyard. Policies allow or deny business to expand and employ American workers. Look at the unemployment rate over history and not that the government is not the solution. Two examples are:

1. NLRB attacking Boeing, a major American employer, to prevent their employing 2,000 workers in South Carolina in a $1,000,000,000 plant which is already built.

2. DOJ settlement with Citizens Republic Bancorp Inc which appears to be enforcement of the lending practices which resulted in the major financial disaster of 2008 by Fannie-Freddie disasterous underwriting and securitizing the loans to push the disaster off onto investors. It is also a way to extort money from private enterprise which could have been used for their expansion or improving their ratios.

Email had the following message and pictures:

Obama Signs
(88 miles south of Seattle)

Northbound on I-5 (88 miles south ofSeattle)...

The federal government is now petitioning to have these signs removed or Washington state will be denied additional monies for interstate highways.

The State of Washington replied, they will secede from the Union rather than be intimidated. These are a matter of free speech paid for by a private citizen.

It seems the Obama government uses intimidation and ignores the first amendment when they want to silence someone.

The tape linked below is a preview of an attack on the American economy starting with J P Morgan Chase in May of 2011. Has Beck been suckered or is what a lot of us have feared been better documented. One of the principles of propaganda is to deny others the ability to quote the propagandist in a lie and to mix in enough truth that people will lie to themselves. The words of this former SEIU executive fit that if this tape is real. The Pentagon report suggesting that there was a possibility of an economic terrorist attack on the American economy a few years ago might indicate that this is not the first attack on the American economy.

Beck has requested statements from the White House and FBI for his show this evening.

A tape of a meeting in which a May 2011 assault on America’s economy was acquired by Beck and copies were forwarded to Chase, a chosen target, and to the Department of Justice.
Steve Lerner, a high level organizer and former SEIU leader, is one of the speakers on this tape in which a plan to create economic chaos is outlined. One of the participants refers to Cloward – Pivens http://cloward-piven.com/
Quote: Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The strategy was first proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven as a plan to bankrupt the welfare system and produce radical change. Sometimes known as the "crisis strategy" or the the "flood-the-rolls, bankrupt-the-cities strategy," the Cloward-Piven approach called for swamping the welfare rolls with new applicants - more than the system could bear. It was hoped that the resulting economic collapse would lead to political turmoil and ultimately socialism.

Some of these people are reaching internationally and there is enough awareness that they have come more out in the open in spite of Lerner’s admonition that the union must not be connected to organizing this assault.

Listen to this recording or watch Glenn Beck TV to see what he actually shows and states. Then listen to those who discuss what he shows and states and it will give a clear understanding of who stands where. Note that I did not state my pre-judgement because each of us is obligated to gather information, vette it and share it with each other. By our vetting the information and sharing the results with each other we can test our analysis and tune up how we make our decisions.


I have a good comparison of the two sides by them. One is shown to school children and the other is a description of the benefit of a free enterprise America by an entrepenuer:




Some Americans rejected capitalism and relocated to Russia during the Great Depression. The better life which they sought is described in, “the book, The Forsake: An American Tragedy In Stalin’s Russia by Tim Tzouliadis is a stark and tragic account of what happened in the 1930’s to thousands of Americans as a result of not knowing what communism was all about.”
