Creeping Communism in America

Chinese Government Propaganda is Being Enthusiastically Embraced at U.S. Universities

Quote:

"Effective propaganda always drapes itself in cuddly messaging in order to distract from the nefarious agenda underneath. This is exactly what’s going on with Chinese government funded Confucius Institutes, which have sprung up at 500 universities worldwide, including 100 in the U.S."

INTERESTING Read

POSTED ON JANUARY 28, 2018 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN DEMOCRATS, LEFTISM

ARE THE DEMOCRATS FIGHTING A CIVIL WAR?

That is the provocative hypothesis put forward by Danial Greenfield at Sultan Knish. On its face it sounds hyperbolic, but Greenfield makes a rather sober case.

This will give you some of his key points:
How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.
That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
***
The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this.

The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.
***
What do sure odds of the Dems rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win.

It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.
That’s a civil war.

There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.
This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement.

You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship.
Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to the left, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate.

Greenfield argues that a “network” of leftists believe they are entitled to run the country, no matter what the voters think, and, in fact, they pretty much do:

The left lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats.

Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country.
The left’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If it’s in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited.
He’s a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented.

A Democrat in the White House has “discretion” to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the “discretion” to reverse him.

That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run.
Sad but true, although the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws.

Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.
The Constitution has something to say about that.

Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land.
This is what I call a moving dictatorship.


Greenfield argues that Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding:
Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can’t serve in if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club.
And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren’t in the club with him.

Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.
That’s not a free country.

It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win, won.
We’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and leftist professional government.
There is lots more, but you get the drift. On the whole, I find Greenfield’s diagnosis persuasive.

Re: Creeping Communism in America

The author fails to mention the genesis of the problem. The globalists are the ones funding the agenda to divide the country, to promote the politics of communism, to fund the educational institutions, and brain wash our children...corrupting them further as young adults in college.
Fixing the above will help reverse the damage but it's only approaching the head of the snake. Ron Paul was right. The Fed dept of Education needs to be abolished.

Really? This is what America has come to? Taking axe swings at the root of our foundation?

Re: Creeping Communism in America

It's just so hard to comprehend that common sense and logic could be so easily replaced by such blind ignorance on so grand a scale.

Selfishly speaking, I can only hope there is such a thing as reincarnation so I can die peacefully before this shit has real consequences on my life, and then come back later and say "I told you so".

Re: Creeping Communism in America

A big part of the problem is lack of parenting,low self esteem and a moral compass.
When you dont have a father to check your ass for doing dumb shit and yo momma is a ho some take the bitch way out and decide they are owed something instead of sacrificing and applying themselves to be better than the scum that conceived them.
After a few generations of that you get where we are.Darwin,Where the hell are you?

This reminds me...and I've said it before....The USA, aka the Fed gov't, which allegedly owns all this land, is bankrupt. To whom do we owe this money printed out of thin air?? The private central bankers that have never put any skin in the game!?? WTF, yo!?
SO, if the USA stops paying interest on the fiat debt we owe them...then we are now officially allegedly bankrupt??? Then THEY take our assets as collateral?? Do you now see the gears of enslavement?

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” —Winston Churchill,
.

SO, America worked quite well with the purer model of capitalism combined with the altruistic nature of Christianity and giving that supported the poor degenerates...even in healthcare. This aid came more efficiently from the local community that had a vested interest. This system WORKED.
Now we have 2018 whereby everything has been destroyed and NOTHING is working and it's capitalism, racism, toxic masculinity, white people, religion, i.e. any thing that was working's fault.
Is it just me, or is there a war upon everything that works?? Globalist agenda perhaps??

Could it be that the single divide in solving this problem is love, aka Christianity or other means of generosity?
One thing IS for certain, bigger gov't is NOT the answer. AND, of course...all this squabbling could be attributed to the Fed Gov't inflation that has made everyone more poor thru it's insidious hidden inflation tax that has mired the middle class for decades. It all started in 1971, why?? Bueller?

Re: Creeping Communism in America

Pay attention, El Marxist...heavy reading ahead. Take some Adderall. I hear it's the latest elixir for your generation.

There are some schools of thought that have a very good argument proclaiming "greed is good", which is the back bone of free market capitalism. I often wonder if human nature is the monkey wrench in the gears, regardless of which economic model chosen.

The Worst Man In Modern History

Quote:
It seems extraordinary that in defiance of all factual history and philosophical knowledge anyone should celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Karl Marx. More than anyone, through wrong-headed ideas, he bears responsibility, indirectly admittedly, for the deaths of an estimated one hundred million people in the last century, and the severe suppression though economic and social servitude of fully one third of the world’s population. And if you also include those who have suffered under the yoke of Marxist-inspired modern socialism, the philosophy that says the state is more important than the individual, you could argue nearly the whole world is influenced by Marxian philosophy today.
