The Ultimate Power Grab

on Friday, June 18, 2010

In the last 2 years the government (who has YET to successfully manage any endeavor of its own) has taken over virtually every business enterprise in the United States. First it was the banking industry. Then mortgages. Then insurance companies. Then the auto companies. Then the health care industry. And right now they are in the process of attempting to take over the energy industry.

...so what's next on their plate? The internet:

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to take another step toward reclassifying the way it regulates Internet service providers, releasing a plan for public comment that would give the federal agency vast new powers over companies that distribute Web access...

The FCC currently classifies Internet service providers — namely AT&T, Comcast and Verizon — as information services, leaving them largely exempt from regulation. The vote today is the first step toward re-classifying the companies to a new and more restrictive category within the FCC code.
They've hinted at doing this since Obama took office, but knew that the Supreme Court would overrule any such legislation.

Obama's solution to that pesky obstacle called the Supreme Court? Just go around them. By declaring the internet as a public utility, the FCC would then already have the authority to regulate the internet - the last headquarters of free speech left on earth.

Look at the list of business sectors listed in the first paragraph... notice something they all have in common? They are all industries that were either a) failing, or b) experiencing some major problems. But what's wrong with the internet? Nothing. There's no fire. Broadband access has increased exponentially over the last 10 years, consumers have a wide variety of providers at all levels of pricing, and the internet's wide-open access allows for competition without the pre-emption of other competitors (i.e. one website doesn’t preclude another from operating).

So why in the world does the government want to control the internet? It's simple: They want to control the message you are receiving. China does the very same thing when controversial or politically unpopular events occur. When such events arise, they just use their kill switch to shut the entire internet down so that their citizens can't get information.

Obama and his Mao-loving cronies hate the new media (the internet, conservative talk-radio, and FoxNews). He has singled-out and verbally slandered people like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity, while saying nothing about the likes of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow (on the contrary - he continuously invites them to private meetings and dinners at his home). The government told people not to visit the Drudge Report website on the totally bogus grounds that there was a virus on the site (there wasn't). He actually declared war on FoxNews and even hired (with your tax dollars) Anita Dunn to sit in her office and listen to talk-radio all day in order to combat it (until she was forced out of the White House for saying her favorite political philosopher was uber-communist Chairman Mao - a man who killed 5x more people than Hitler). And just a few weeks ago he told people on the right to read Huffingtonpost, but notice he never asked leftists to read Drudge, Michelle Malkin, Ace, or HotAir.

But none of these methods have worked. So Obama is going all in with every chip he has left on the table. If he can't persuade people to stop reading the conservative perspective, he'll just force them to stop reading it instead.

I used to think that Obama was just an inexperienced leftist who was making dumb decisions based on his naïveté. But now I know that this is all calculated.

Upon hearing about this news yesterday, a colleague remarked that Obama is just like Jimmy Carter. But I disagree: Jimmy Carter was stupid, but Obama is evil - there's a big difference.

As far back as the 1960s Ezra Taft Benson, who was serving as the Secretary of Agriculture under President Eisenhower, recalled an experience he had with communist leader Nikita Khrushchev who remarked that his (Benson's) American grandchildren would one day live under communism. When Secretary Benson challenged him, Khrushchev replied, "You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright. But we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism."

Taking over the internet; this is how freedom dies.

Obama: Nikita Khrushchev's hero...

US Constitution Now Shipping with a Disclaimer

on Thursday, June 10, 2010

...cuz, you know, it's just some old document that has no meaning today, or something.

Wilder Publishing is now adding the following disclaimer to copies of the United States Constitution on Amazon.com:

This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.
Here's a screenie if you need to see it with your own eyes to believe it. Question: According to this work's publisher, what could be better than placing a disclaimer on the Constitution? Answer: Adding the same disclaimer to the Declaration of Independence, the Federalist Papers, Thomas Payne's Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and several other historical documents and works.

I've long believed that political correctness will be the downfall of this nation, I just didn't think it would happen so quickly. Although at the same time, I cant say I'm surprised. After all, we DID elect as president a man who was voted as THE most liberal in the entire United States Senate; a progressive free-thinker so obsessed with political correctness that, instead of honoring D-Day this past Sunday, he chose instead to throw his second party in the past week at Ford Theatre to honor anti-Semitic pro-Arab Muslim terrorist Desmond Tutu, who once had this fun Hitler-esque ethnic cleansing quote to say about the Jews:

Territorial ambition is equally illegal [when] it occurs in slow motion, as with the Israeli settlers in the Occupied Territories...

The United States has a distinct responsibility to intervene in atrocities committed by its client states, and since Israel is the single largest recipient of U.S. arms and foreign aid, an end to the occupation [of the Jews in the Middle East -ed.] should be a top concern.
With disclaimers now shipping on copies of the Constitution, and with our Commander-in-Chief skipping D-Day to instead honor a terrorist who consistently trashes America, I'd say this nation is now officially completely backwards. And who can say they're surprised? After all, didn't Obama promise his entire campaign that he was going to "change" America?

Final thoughts: President Obama, trying to quell accusations that he's emotionally UNinvolved in the recent oil spill in the gulf, had this rather childish, immature, and non-presidential attack on a singled-out private entity the other day in an interview on NBC's Today show:

I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin’ heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standin’ in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. and I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.
If President Obama is looking for someone's "ass to kick", he should start with his own.

Obama's Priorities

on Friday, June 4, 2010

President Obama promised Americans that the gulf oil spill was his "singular" priority and that it's "what [he] wakes up to in the morning" and "what [he] goes to bed at night thinking about".

But Kevin Kristy over at PolitiPage doesn't agree - and has the pictures to prove it:



In case you weren't able to tally all that up, here is the unofficial count of Obama's activities since the oil spill began:

  • 7 days of golf
  • 6 sports events
  • 6 days of campaigning
  • 6 days of vacation
  • 4 commemorations (graduations, Cinco de Mayo, et al.)
  • 3 days of fundraising for his Democrat pals
  • 2 days of media events (White House Correspondents Dinner and meets with Bono for some reason - and that doesn't include the VIP dinner with Paul McCartney he had the other night)


  • Could you imagine the seizure the left would have had if, during Katrina, Bush went golfing 7 times, went to half a dozen sporting events, and hosted several parties - all while squeezing multiple vacations into the mix?? Had Bush done what Obama has done, the left would have wet straight through its pants and there would not be enough voltage on planet earth to electroshock them back into coherence. Clearly a double-standard is being showcased here.

    Now, in all fairness, perhaps Obama spent a few hours during some of those days discussing the oil spill with his staff before heading off to a BBQ... But that list of recreational activities above isn't going to convince the American voters that the oil spill has been his "singular" priority meme. After all, it took him 36 days before answering any questions from the press about the matter, and only did so because he thought the "top kill" method had worked and wanted to claim the victory for himself. But only after it was revealed that the "top kill" method had actually been halted the night before he claimed its victory did he begin to distance himself from the relief efforts again (which begs another question: How is it, Mr. President, that you claimed that BP didn't act unless it got approval from your administration first, yet you went on TV and didn't even know that "top kill" had been stopped roughly 12 hours earlier?)

    Quite frankly, I don't think the right would be hounding him on this so hard if he (and the rest of the left) hadn't been pulverizing Bush into a fine paste over Katrina for the past 5 years. But let this be a lesson to the left: You can't set the bar at 9 feet for President Bush, and then expect to lower it back to 3 feet once your party gets elected to the helm. If your argument over the past 5 years was that Bush was at fault for the mishandling of Katrina, then you reap the fruits of your labors when Obama gets to face the music while today the oil spill is just as bad as it was 45 days ago.
