I created the above photoshop for Wayne Allyn Root’s Washington Time’s piece: The Marxist In The Mirror:
It’s official. President Obama has declared war on capitalism, which is funny because he never officially declared war on Libya. But our fearless Marxist-in-chief reserves a special brand of hatred for capitalism, entrepreneurship and rich people. Just days ago, Mr. Obama publicly blamed “speculators” for the rising price of gas. Mr. Obama publicly announced a war on speculators and speculation, imposing the Justice Department, government lawyers, Cabinet heads and the whole Big Brother kitchen sink on this “evil” bunch of capitalists.
Well I have news for you, Mr. Obama. You better go after many other Americans, too: home buyers, stock buyers, gold buyers, art buyers, classic-car buyers, wholesalers, small-business owners and investors. Because everyone who risks money to buy things and attempts to resell later at a profit is a speculator.
By going after oil speculators, Mr. Obama is setting the stage to go after every businessman and woman in America, seeking to redefine profits as either immoral or criminal, and targeting, demonizing and punishing the people who invest in America, courageously take financial risk and create most new jobs.
Why is Mr. Obama engaging in class warfare? Because A) he has to blame and demonize someone for his failures; B) he has to distract American consumers and voters from a failing economy and $5 per gallon gas; and C) most investors and speculators are fiscal conservatives, many of whom contribute to Mr. Obama’s political opposition.

Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin: Cavalry to the, uh, Rescue: Obama/Holder Naming Task Force to Investigate Possible Illegalities in Rising Gas Prices
The administration that acted in contempt by ignoring a judge’s order to lift the Gulf drilling moratorium will be looking for illegalities in rising oil and gas prices. Whew! Help is finally on the way!
After three years of investment by Shell, the eco-Marxists at the EPA pulled the rug right out from under the beleaguered oil company for specious, ludicrous reasons (“The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had not taken into consideration emissions from an ice-breaking vessel when calculating overall greenhouse gas emissions from the project”).
We are the only country on the face of the Earth that restricts access to its own vast energy resources.
These suicidal policies represent an existential economic and national security threat.
And this is an intentional strategy on the part of President Obama.
I hate to use the I-word, but I truly feel that these policies — opposed by the vast majority of Americans and unworthy of a “Commander-in-Chief” — represent a crime of the highest order.
This administration follows the rule of whim, not of law. Congress needs to look into this thuggish attempt to bully Solomon out of his job — and they should take another look at the Johnson/Walpin case while they’re at it.
Washington (CNS News) – In what the White House calls a push for transparency, a pending executive order would require companies doing business with the federal government to disclose political contributions to independent groups, but would not place the same requirement on public employee unions or federal grant recipients that typically donate to Democrats.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Labor Relations Board says it will move ahead with lawsuits seeking to invalidate state constitutional amendments in Arizona and South Dakota that require workers to hold secret ballot elections before a company can be unionized.
ME, October 2008: Yes, Obama IS A Marxist:
I don’t know why Republicans keep tip-toeing around the obvious. If I hear one more person say, “Nobody is calling Obama a Marxist (or Socialist)…..I’m just questioning his judgment, honesty”, what-have-you, I think I’ll scream.
Nobody says, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck…I’m not saying it’s a duck…I’m just questioning its judgment and honesty”. No. It’s a damn duck. Everybody knows it.
The evidence that Obama is a Marxist/Socialist is overwhelming. We have him speaking admiringly of “collectivism” in 1995, We have him in his own words, on tape, discussing “redistribution of wealth” favorably in 2001. We have his unguarded, and uncharacteristically honest answer to Joe The Plumber about “spreading the wealth” in 2008.
Capitalists do. not. speak. like. that.
And so on. A voice crying out in the wilderness.
