In case you missed Rush, today – he was on a roll. I managed to find a station while I was on the road today, and heard this monologue in the car, (after searching for what seemed an eternity for a talk station.)
As you can imagine, my ears perked up when I heard this – I know it’s what a lot of us are feeling in our guts, and we feel powerless to stop it:
“Obama is at max damage potential right now”, Rush asserted, “he can inflict the maximum damage possible for the purpose of transforming the country from capitalism to….Western European Socialism. He’s got two years to double down, triple down, max out on it. And that’s if he cares about the 2014 mid terms, but if you listen to the Democrats talk, they don’t care about that…”

“If you have an ounce of compassion this Christmas season, save it for John Boehner and the House Republicans,” Hume said. “President Obama is treating them as if he has them over a barrel headed for the fiscal cliff — and he does. This is not because Mr. Obama won re-election. After all, he won 51 percent, and needed the greatest voter mobilization operation in history to do it.”
“His leverage now stems from the law, which ends the Bush tax rates on January 1, imposing new higher tax rate and a steep set of spending cuts that fall with special force on military,” Hume explained. “Nobody wants these things, but Republicans, the low tax and strong defense party, want them least of all. Not only that, but polls indicate that if these things come to pass, the public by large margin will blame the GOP.”
Is it safe to say that we’re in a full-blown depression now? I think so.
Gallup’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 8.3% for November, up nearly one percentage-point over October’s rate. Gallup’s underemployment jumped from 15.9% to 17.2%…
Since Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office in January 2009 he has created on average 101 new federal employees each day.
Andrew Malcolm at Investor’s Business Daily reported:
You may have noticed some economic difficulties across the country in recent years among family, friends, neighbors, colleagues. One sector is doing quite nicely, however, under Barack Hussein Obama.
In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.
Jaw-dropping lie alert: Obama tells workers right-to-work laws “take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” in reality it stops workers from being forced to join a union as a condition of employment. Nothing in those laws relates to collective bargaining. So he’s either grossly misinformed or lying his ass off.
In the Obama playbook, “segmenting the market” essentially meant “community organizing.” Although modern liberal philosophy is grounded in collectivism, progressives effectively mass their troops using division and agitation. The trick is maintaining voluntary cohesion and support, in a failing economy or security threats or disasters, among the various personalities in the parlor. (For example, imagine a dinner-party-scene where the Obama-phone lady was suddenly aware that Obama-money had run out, and she was seated next to Will Smith when he just heard he would be hit with a 75% tax rate.) But camaraderie is never the ultimate goal of the host and his fellow bureaucrats at their utopian party anyway — their intent is to create and forcefully implement one-size-fits-all collectivist policies for their guests.
Divisive conversation on “Fairness” and motivational phrases such as “We can’t wait,” “Vote for revenge,” “You didn’t build that,” and “Punish your enemies” were addressed to those in the parlor whom the campaign already knew would answer “I do” to the question, “Who goes Obama?” A helpful mainstream media provided the venue, orchestrated the background music, and perfectly coordinated entertaining distractions.
However, there’s much more at stake in political parlor games than simply formulating targeted marketing strategies. Ms. Thompson endeavored to ask not just who, but beyond and to the more important question: Why? What was it that made some people, at a deeper level, more susceptible to the allure of such an ideology? She answered:
Their race, color, creed, or social condition is not the criterion. It is something in them.
Thompson explained her conclusion further:
Sometimes I think there are direct biological factors at work — a type of education, feeding, and physical training which has produced a new kind of human being with an imbalance in his nature. He has been fed vitamins and filled with energies that are beyond the capacity of his intellect to discipline. He has been treated to forms of education which have released him from inhibitions. His body is vigorous. His mind is childish. His soul has been almost completely neglected.
Those chilling words were written decades ago, yet they seem to describe much of today’s society. For a real jolt, reread Thompson’s article, replacing Nazi wherever it appears with “Obama-supporter.” Besides being a very politically incorrect exercise, the uncomfortable parallels are inescapable: both statist ideologies, besides being led by riveting personalities, seem to appeal to childish minds — many of them highly educated — whose souls have been neglected.
A new report suggests the United States will no longer be the sole world superpower by 2030.
Isn’t this what the left always wanted?
The Politico reported:
A new report by the intelligence community projects that the United States will no longer be the world’s only superpower by 2030.
“In terms of the indices of overall power – GDP, population size, military spending and technological investment – Asia will surpass North America and Europe combined,” the report concludes.
“Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds” — prepared by the office of the National Intelligence Council of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — projects that the “unipolar” world that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union will not continue.
