Video: Glenn Beck’s Expose Of Chairman Mao Fan, Anita “Done”

I saw this when it aired, earlier this afternoon, and was flabbergasted.

It seems that Obama’s White House Communications Director, Anita Dunn has expressed her great admiration for the murderous Communist dictator, Mao Tse Tung.

To high school kids.

On tape.

Mao Tse Tung said “You fight your war, and I’ll fight my mine.”

One of Ms. Dunn’s favorite political philosophers sure laid out his own path, and made his own choices:

Kill tally: 14 to 20 million deaths from starvation during the ‘Great Leap Forward’. Tens of thousands killed and millions of lives ruined during the ‘Cultural Revolution’.

In what’s considered the definitive biography of Chairman Mao, Mao: The Unknown Story, it is estimated that Mao Tse Tung killed 70 million people, making him, the greatest mass murderer in human history.

Here are some of her fave rave’s quotable quotes from his “Little Red Book”:

Speech at the Chinese Communist Party’s National Conference on Propaganda Work (March 12, 1957)

This passage was used to justify the intensive “reeducation” sessions which tried to bring all Chinese people into line. The final qualifying phrases were usually ignored.

In our country bourgeois and petty-bourgeois ideology, anti-Marxist ideology, will continue to exist for a long time. Basically, the socialist system has been established in our country. We have won the basic victory in transforming the ownership of the means of production, but we have not yet won complete victory on the political and ideological fronts. In the ideological field, the question of who will win in the struggle between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie has not been really settled yet. We still have to wage a protracted struggle against bourgeois and petty-bourgeois ideology. It is wrong not to understand this and to give up ideological struggle. All erroneous ideas, all poisonous weeds, all ghosts and monsters, must be subjected to criticism; in no circumstance should they be allowed to spread unchecked. However, the criticism should be fully reasoned, analytical and convincing, and not rough, bureaucratic, metaphysical or dogmatic.

“Problems of War and Strategy” (November 6, 1938)

In its original context this saying meant that the Communists would never be allowed to come to power in China without a successful violent revolution. In the context of the Cultural Revolution it meant that the Chinese People’s Army had to play a leading role in sustaining, purifying, and spreading Communism. And abroad it was often used to justify revolutionary terrorism.

Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

Speech at the Moscow Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties (November 18, 1957)

Mao was widely ridiculed abroad for stating that the U.S. and its nuclear arsenal were “paper tigers.” Many supposed that Mao would have willingly plunged the world into a nuclear war out of sheer ignorance. But it seems more probable that, lacking such arms himself, he used his most powerful weapon: the bluff. The bomb was not a very effective tool of diplomacy because the threat it posed was only as credible as the willingness of any nation to plunge the world into a holocaust, very probably destroying itself in the process. Mao had every reason to let the world think he was not afraid of the bomb no matter what his private thoughts might have been.

I have said that all the reputedly powerful reactionaries are merely paper tigers. The reason is that they are divorced from the people. Look! Was not Hitler a paper tiger? Was Hitler not overthrown? I also said that the tsar of Russia, the emperor of China and Japanese imperialism were all paper tigers. As we know, they were all overthrown. U.S. imperialism has not yet been overthrown and it has the atom bomb. I believe it also will be overthrown. It, too, is a paper tiger.

Part three:

Remember when this used to be true?:

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao,
You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow.

Not so in 2009 ObamAmerica.

Liberals don’t see anything wrong with admiring Communist dictators. That’s why you don’t hear an outcry about the tea party signs that portray Obama as Communist/Socialist/Marxist. These signs are staples at tea parties, (heck, I’ve created some myself).

tea-party-signs

Libs hate the Obama/Hitler signs, which  are actually rare, and almost entirely La Rouche supporters’ creations, but you rarely hear complaints about the numerous hammer an sickles seen at tea parties.

Is that something the United States should be helping them celebrate?

Reports Jake Tapper tweeted that the White House claims she was joking. Yeah, bull. Watch the tape again. She was dead serious. Her audience tittered nervously when she paired Chairman Mao with Mother Teresa, because it is frankly batshit crazy.

She describes Mao as not just her favorite political philosopher, but one of the “two people I turn to most.” The other, tragically or humorously depending on your frame of mind, being Mother Teresa. I can bet you that between the two it is not Mother Teresa who Anita Dunn looks to for guidance on abortion policy.

Yeah, no kidding.

Former CBO Director:Obama’s Fiscal Policies “Laughable”

Democrats like to call Republicans  “the party of no”. They like to accuse Republicans of having no plans of their own.  They insist that doing something is better than doing nothing.

Well as far as the stimulus is concerned, doing nothing would have been better.

“The Obama Administration’s claims of fiscal responsibility are both hypocritical …. [a]nd laughable,” Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who served as director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) from 2003 through 2005, wrote in an Oct. 14 memo to Republican members of the House of Representatives.

Holtz-Eakin said in the memo that the hastily written stimulus bill enacted in February–the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009–was “poorly designed” and that was “probably one of the reasons why we’ve lost 3 million private-sector jobs since it became law.”

“A minority (under $300 billion) of the near trillion-dollar bill cut taxes, and very little cut marginal tax rates,” he said. “The result was no real improvement in economic incentives.”

Holtz-Eakin’s memo was in response to a letter sent to House Republicans on Monday by White House National Economic Council Director Larry Summers. Summers’s letter blamed most of the economy’s ailments on the Bush administration and insisting that the economy is on the upswing.  Summers, in turn, was responding to early GOP criticisms of the stimulus.

“We have walked a substantial distance back from the economic abyss and are on the path toward economic recovery,” Summers wrote to House Republicans.

What Summers conveniently forgets to mention is the fact  that “under Republicans the deficit never exceeded 3.6 percent of GDP and at the close of fiscal year 2008 the debt-to-GDP ratio was 40 percent,” according to Holtz-Eakin.

“The CBO indicates that under the administration’s plans, the deficit will never fall below 4 percent of GDP and the debt-to-GDP ratio will be 82 percent and spiraling upward,” wrote Holtz-Eakin.

Zombie Takes Media Matters To Task On “Safe School Czar” Kevin Jennings

harry haysA picture of Harry Hays from the 1990 book,The Trouble with Harry Hay, by Stuart Timmons,  a chapter of which was included in the 1994 anthology Becoming Visible, which Jennings compiled and edited. Zombie argues that this means it is beyond doubt that Jennings had read ‘The Trouble with Harry Hay’.

Ouch, talk about an uneven battle of wits. Zombie has lowered the boom on lefty hacks, Media Matters, who have been working feverishly to defend Obama’s “Safe School Czar, Kevin Jennings, in a post written specifically for them to ponder.

Yes, Harry Hay was a big NAMBLA supporter.

Yes,  Kevin Jennings  admired him.

Yes,  Kevin Jennings knew about Harry Hays’ NAMBLA support.

Zombie provides the ample evidence.

Where I disagree with Zombie, is his/her assessment that such a profound lapse in judgment can be forgiven if:

Jennings and the Obama administration to enter “crisis management mode”: In other words, they should get in front of the story, apologize, acknowledge mistakes, and vow to never repeat them.

I think this is the wrong person for “Safe School Czar”, period, as should be clear from the evidence Zombie presents.

53 House Republicans call on Obama to fire Kevin Jennings

A group of 53 Republican members of the House has sent a letter to the president asking for the removal of Kevin Jennings, the gay activist who now runs the Education Department’s Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. “It is clear that Mr. Jennings lacks the appropriate qualifications and ethical standards to serve in this capacity,” the lawmakers write.

The letter was written by Rep. Steve King, who last week became the first lawmaker to call for Jennings to be fired. Among the signers of the new letter are some prominent members of the House GOP, including Republican Conference chairman Rep. Mike Pence, along with Reps. Paul Ryan, Darrell Issa, John Carter, Patrick McHenry, Spencer Bachus, Duncan Hunter, Michelle Bachmann, and 45 others.

“As the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mr. Jennings has played an integral role in promoting homosexuality and pushing a pro-homosexual agenda in America’s schools—an agenda that runs counter to the values that many parents desire to instill in their children,” the lawmakers write in the letter to Obama. “There is more to safe and drug free schools than can be accomplished from the narrow view of Mr. Jennings who has, for more than 20 years, almost exclusively focused on promoting the homosexual agenda.”

Honduras Folds – (Or Not) Updated

Sadly, the pressure from Washington must have gotten to them.

A report out of Tegucigalpa, this morning:

Honduran negotiators have reached agreement on ending a political crisis triggered by President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster in a June coup.

”We have agreed in a document on point No. 6, which relates to the restitution of the powers of state to where they were before June 28, 2009,” Mr Zelaya’s representative said.

This of course implies that Chavez acolyte, Zelaya would be returned to power for a short period until the a new administration is installed next January after the Nov. 29 election. How much mischief he could engage in before the election is anyone’s guess.

Neither Zelaya or interim President Roberto Micheletti are on the ballot.

UPDATE:

It appears that the initial report of Zelaya’s reinstatement was inaccurate:

The latest from Gateway Pundit:

Report: Zelaya Will Be Exiled to Spain?– Charged With Crimes If He Returns to Honduras

The latest speculation comes from my sources inside the Micheletti government.
President Micheletti will step down and may be moved to a position connected to the Honduran Supreme Court.

Former President Manuel Zelaya will be exiled to Spain. If he comes back to Honduras he will be charged for his many crimes discovered by the current government after Zelaya was ousted for circumventing the Honduran Constitution.

Is Obama Turning Us into the Next Evil Empire?

(I’ve been wondering the same thing)…

It’s not just that he has adopted a policy that was unthinkable for most of America’s history. There is something far more striking, far more telling and far more alarming: in the current Honduran situation, Zelaya is precisely the man the Soviet Union — that evil empire — would have sided with.
Now I want you to let that sink in for a moment . . . .
This reality merely illustrates the obvious in an emotionally gripping way. While Reagan opposed Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega by funding his anti-communist opponents, Obama sides with a reinvented Ortega in supporting Zelaya. In doing so, he also lines up with unrepentant communists, either in name or spirit, such as Chavez and Fidel Castro. Fine company you keep there, Mr. Obama.
