You may be wondering, why in the world is a conservative site like mine showcasing someone like Naomi Wolf, a raging feminst and liberal if ever there was one. No, I haven’t lost my mind, but once in awhile even a Leftie like Naomi can get a thing or two right. Granted she gets a lot WRONG!!! For instance, our founding fathers never wanted a democracy for our country, they despised the very concept of democracy and saw it as a sure and fastest way to tyranny. That is why they gave us a republic, not a democracy. Another thing she and every leftist gets wrong is fascism. Fascism and let me make this abundantly clear is NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PERPETUATED BY THE RIGHT!!! You cannot have a right wing fascist-it is impossible! Why? Because fascism is the complete control of government over the people, the people on the right want limited government not more government. Therefore anarchy is what you get when the right goes extreme! Fascism, socialism, communism-all those are strictly inventions of the Left! Though the Left likes to glamorize and seize anarchy as its own, it is actually what happens when the Right loses its mind. Also anarchy is a temporary state of government that is quickly replaced by a new government, usually an oligarchy which is a government run by an select few-an elite, if you will. Therefore, if Bush was truly a fascist, then he is not a right wing fascist but a left wing one!
What is even more interesting is that all the sins she laid at Bush’s door Obama has done on a larger scale. Bush has a list of “enemy combatants” Obama has a larger one including veterans returning home. We supposedly tortured at Gitmo, Obama has since said, “Yeah, that’s okay. We won’t prosecute you after all.” We went from Iraq to Afghanistan. Changing battlefronts-which is what Obama said he would do, he never said our soldiers were coming back home but that is what everyone believed-is not ending a war, it is changing strategies. More and more Americans are saying Obama is just like Bush while others say he is worse. In fact, his approval rating is only 50% only Reagan had a lower approval rating his first year in office at 49%.
The difference being Reagan would usher in glasnost and dismantle our most feared enemy, the Soviet Union while Obama is content on relinquishing our sovereignty to our enemies and dismantling the United States. The part of the video, I found most intriguing was when she talks about she is talking to her older friend who survived the Holocaust who kept telling her, “They did this in Germany.” It is that warning, that blueprint she talks about that I think we need to pay attention to because the Left has always ushered in tyranny. Please read the Weimar Constitution, which is the Left’s version of our beloved document and see how the Left does a republic. You can find my comparison on here called Dueling Constitutions: Weimar vs. U.S. Constitution.
While all men are created equal, all constitutions are not. As we now are finding our liberties to be rapidly evaporating, it is prudent that we take the time to think not only about our own constitution but those around the world, past and present. It stands to reason, if Obama and his leftist cronies get their way we will see dissolution to our constitution and a rise to Weimar’s.
What is Weimar?
The Weimar Constitution is the governing document of Germany that was drafted right after World War I. One of the main architects of the Weimar Constitution was a man named Max Weber and according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: “He was invited to join the draft board of the Weimar Constitution as well as the German delegation to Versaille; albeit in vain, he even ran for a parliamentary seat on the liberal Democratic Party ticket.” [Kim, Sung Ho “Max Weber” Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. August 24, 2007. http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/weber/] Weber was prominent in his time and wrote such books as “The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.” While there are conflicting reports about his politics most say he was left wing and if the Constitution that he was a part of is any indication, then I would agree.
It is important to know this because once we see how the Left does a Constitution, it becomes even more urgent that we prevent them from trashing and rewriting ours as Obama, Pelosi and Reid would all love to do. So let’s look at the stark differences in a more decidedly Left Constitution and those right wing nuts we call our Founding Fathers and their Constitution. The first thing that jumps out at you is the sheer size between the two Constitutions. While the Left loves to hear the sound of its own voice and use fanciful language, except in this case-the language is almost childlike and immature. The Right is more get to the point and make sure everyone can understand. The Weimar Constitution has 181 Articles, the U.S. Constitution 7. There are no amendments in the Weimar and the U.S has 27. You can tell they were trying to draw from the U.S. Constitution as their main source of inspiration but their need to interfere in the lives of others prevented them from pulling it off. Even when they start off with the correct premise they go wrong very quickly. I will give you an example.
Article 119: “Marriage, as the foundation of the family and the preservation and expansion of the nation, enjoys the special protection of the constitution. It is based on the equality of both genders. It is task of both the state and the communities to strengthen and socially promote the family. Large families may claim social welfare. Motherhood is placed under state protection and welfare.” [Emphasis mine] [PSM-Data: Geschichte. “The Weimar Constitution”http://www.zum.de/psm/weimar/weimar_vve.php#Seventh Chapter]It is like watching a NASCAR driver crashing. You see him going along at nice little clip and then boom he crashes into the wall! That is what this passage reminds me of. They started off in the right direction by protecting marriage, even got right the equality of both genders in the marriage then told mothers they were under the state’s “protection.” Okay Capone, thanks but no thanks. They start to grant liberty and then quickly snatch it away.
Restore the Republic wanted to know if the Germans during the Nazi era were armed and while I don’t know if they were or not, I can tell you they had no constitutional protection to self-protection. All protection was to come through the state.
Article 123 does mention arms but not in a way that would protect the people. It reads: All Germans have the right to assemble peacefully and unarmed; While that is article 123, our very first amendment is the right to peaceably assemble. And it doesn’t have the caveat “unarmed” after it. I don’t know about you but I have been to more than a few protests in my time and never ran into anyone wielding their Uzi during it. And despite what the Left wants you to think there hasn’t been a rash of right wingers going to Tea Parties threatening the politicians by pulling out guns! So it would seem to me the true purpose of that was not to protect the protesters but to protect the government. So when they decided to bust in on a protest the only one with guns would be them!
Again you can see where the Left tried to emulate the truly freedom loving, Constitution of the U.S. and then once again got it wrong. There are nine individual rights given by the Weimar Constitution, not one of them mentions freedom of the press. Not one of them mentions the right to bear arms. Not one of them mentions the right to be seen before a judge if you are charged with a crime. It is these fundamental freedoms that make us a great and mighty nation and while they do try to give the people, religious liberty, it truly is not! There is nothing that isn’t under the government control and purview. But as frightening as all of this nothing is as frightening as Article 48!
“If a state (8) does not fulfil [sic] the obligations laid upon it by the Reich constitution or the Reich laws, the Reich President may use armed force to cause it to oblige. In case public safety is seriously threatened or disturbed, the Reich President may take the measures necessary to reestablish law and order, if necessary using armed force. In the pursuit of this aim he may suspend the civil rights described in articles 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124 and 154, partially or entirely.” [Emphasis mine]
Say what you want about Bush, the Patriot Act and our governmental system overall, I defy you to show me where it says in black and white that our civil rights may be partially or entirely suspended by the President! That is a scary thought. Article 48 was promoted by none other than Max Weber! It would be Article 48 that would give us the Nazi regime and the extermination of 5-6 million Jews! To give one individual such power is outrageous! It is an affront to liberty loving people everywhere to know one man has the power and authority to outright deny your civil rights without so much as a discussion about it.
Article 48 does try to reign in the tyrant by adding this line: The Reich President has to inform Reichstag immediately about all measures undertaken which are based on paragraphs 1 and 2 of this article. The measures have to be suspended immediately if Reichstag demands so. If danger is imminent, the state government may, for their specific territory, implement steps as described in paragraph 2. These steps have to be suspended if so demanded by the Reich President or the Reichstag. Further details are provided by Reich law.” However, that doesn’t even begin to border on the logical. Do you really think if the President just ordered everyone’s civil rights to be suspended that somehow the Reichstag, in this case, will not be arrested, jailed or killed along with the others? Do you really think one person with unlimited unilateral power as you have just given him will all of a sudden listen to anyone else? The whole thing is preposterous! Yet Max Weber fought to get this in the Constitution, not out!
What is scary that is under FEMA this could very well be our future. It took this kind of corrupt constitution to eliminate the rights from a whole group of people before exterminating them completely. FEMA also acts as our Article 48, giving power to the federal government, FEMA specifically, in times of “emergency.” Read Fearing FEMA on this site to read what FEMA admits on its own site, what it is really practicing for-war! There is also this: “Billions of dollars of new funding were directed to FEMA to help communities face the threat of terrorism. Just a few years past its 20th anniversary, FEMA was actively directing its “all-hazards” approach to disasters toward homeland security issues.” Considering dissenting Americans were targeted by Homeland Security this past year, is it far-fetched to think FEMA has an all-hazards approach to squelching us? I don’t think so. Article 48 destroyed Germany. Will Executive Order 12127 (FEMA’s creator) destroy America? Not if I can help it!
H.L. Mencken’s article dealing with FDR’s New Deal and what it meant for America back in 1937
I got this in an email from a really good friend of mine and it felt it was very appropriate at this time to put up. It is not my writing, instead this comes from the genius of H. L. Mencken. Though this first appeared in 1937, it so accurately describes what we are facing today in 2009. Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. And so here we go again.
THIS SATIRICAL PIECE FIRST APPEARED IN The American Mercury,, 41 (June 1937), 129-36, and was reprinted in condensed form by The Reader’s Digest, 31 (July 1937), 27-29. In order to indicate what reached the widest audience, the condensed version appears here.
The principal cause of the uproar in Washington is a conflict between the swift- moving idealism of the New Deal and the unyielding hunkerousness of the Constitution of 1788. What is needed, obviously, is a wholly new Constitution, drawn up with enough boldness and imagination to cover the whole program of the More Abundant Life, now and hereafter. That is what I presume to offer here. The Constitution that follows is not my invention, and in more than. one detail I have unhappy doubts of its wisdom. But I believe that it sets forth with reasonable accuracy the plan of government that the More Abundant Life wizards have sought to substitute for the plan of the Fathers. They have themselves argued at one time or another, by word or deed, for everything contained herein:
We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish social justice, draw the fangs of privilege, effect the redistribution of property, remove the burden of liberty from ourselves and our posterity, and insure the continuance of the New Deal, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
The Executive All governmental power of whatever sort shall be vested in a President of the United States. He shall hold office during a series of terms of four years each, and shall take the following oath: “I do solemnly swear that I will (in so far as I deem it feasible and convenient) faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will (to the best of my recollection and in the light of experiment and second thought) carry out the pledges made by me during my campaign for election (or such of them as I may select).” The President shall be commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy, and of the militia, Boy Scouts, C.I.O., People’s Front, and other armed forces of the nation. The President shall have the power: To lay and collect taxes, and to expend the income of the United States in such manner as he may deem to be to their or his advantage; To borrow money on the credit of the United States, and to provide for its repayment on such terms as he may fix; To regulate all commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and within them; to license all persons engaged or proposing to engage in business; to regulate their affairs; to limit their profits by proclamation from time to time; and to fix wages, prices and hours of work; To coin money, regulate the content and value thereof, and of foreign coin, and to amend or repudiate any contract requiring the payment by the United States, or by any private person, of coin of a given weight or fineness; To repeal or amend, in his discretion, any so-called natural law, including Gresham’s law, the law of diminishing returns, and the law of gravitation. The President shall be assisted by a Cabinet of eight or more persons, whose duties shall be to make speeches whenever so instructed and to expend the public funds in such manner as to guarantee the President’s continuance in office. The President may establish such executive agencies as he deems necessary, and clothe them with such powers as he sees fit. No person shall be a member to any such bureau who has had any practical experience of the matters he is appointed to deal with. One of the members of the Cabinet shall be an Attorney General. It shall be his duty to provide legal opinions certifying to the constitutionality of all measures undertaken by the President, and to gather evidence of the senility of judges.
The Legislature The legislature of the United States shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives. Every bill shall be prepared under the direction of the President, and transmitted to the two Houses at his order by their presiding officers. No member shall propose any amendment to a bill without permission in writing from the President or one of his authorized agents. In case any member shall doubt the wisdom of a bill he may apply to the President for light upon it, and thereafter he shall be counted as voting aye. In all cases a majority of members shall be counted as voting aye. Both Houses may appoint special committees to investigate the business practices, political views, and private lives of any persons known to be inimical to the President; and such committees shall publish at public cost any evidence discovered that appears to be damaging to the persons investigated. Members of both Houses shall be agents of the President in the distribution of public offices, federal appropriations, and other gratuities in their several states, and shall be rewarded in ratio to their fidelity to his ideals and commands.
The Judiciary The judges of the Supreme Court and of all inferior courts shall be appointed by the President, and shall hold their offices until he determines by proclamation that they have become senile. The number of judges appointed to the Supreme Court shall be prescribed by the President, and may be changed at his discretion. All decisions of the Supreme Court shall be unanimous. The jurisdiction and powers of all courts shall he determined by the President. No act that he has approved shall be declared unconstitutional by any court.
Bill of Rights There shall be complete freedom of speech and of the press – subject to such regulations as the President or his agents may from time to time promulgate. The freedom of communication by radio shall not be abridged; but the President and such persons as he may designate shall have the first call on the time of all stations. In disputes between capital and labor, all the arbitrators shall be representatives of labor. Every person whose annual income fans below a minimum to be fixed by the President shall receive from the public funds an amount sufficient to bring it up to that minimum. No labor union shall be incorporated and no officer or member thereof shall be accountable for loss of life or damage to person or property during a strike. All powers not delegated herein to the President are reserved to him, to be used at his discretion.
There is a fervor surrounding Obama’s birth. According to several news outlets the Supreme Court will not be reviewing cases brought forth by two voters to legitimize Obama’s birth certificate. I see we have the legitimacy to elect him, just not the legitimacy to question his qualifications in the first place. How ridiculous is that notion?
However, Alan Keyes, who was on the ballot in California is also suing Obama to produce his birth certificate in order to make sure he is eligible to serve out his presidency. Obama of course is calling the whole thing-garbage. It is a typical liberal response, you don’t ever answer the question directly but try to deflect it back on your enemies. The Constitution is of course not garbage. But it is not surprising that he thinks it is. After all this is the same man that called it a flawed document. I have trouble with a president who will be sworn in and asked to uphold it, calling it a flawed document. But then again if it is not ” The Audacity of Hope” or “The Dreams of my Father”-then any written document is flawed including the Bible.
Now according to his deceased grandmother, she was there at Obama’s birth….in Kenya!!! He was a citizen of Indonesia and now he wants to claim citizenship of America. Well the Constitution is quite clear on this, not born here-can’t be the President. My sister was born in West Germany, she can’t be President either. (And even with all her liberal leanings she would still make a better President than Obama.) Me, I was born in San Francisco and I got the birth certificate to prove it! In fact, I am thinking about running for President in 2012. So I am working on it now. I will switch back and forth between religions, build up my arsenal of terrorist friends, dodge anything that has to do my past (No, I never ran around with decapitated doll heads! You’re just racist!) and then talk about change all the while spouting the same liberal garbage politicians have been talking about for forty years. I will be a cinch to win.
The crazy thing is all Obama has to do in this case, to make it all go away is produce a valid birth certificate! We are not asking him to split the atom for crying out loud, just don’t give us fraudulent documents to establish your nationality-is that really so hard? Alan Keyes with the United States Justice Foundation has filed suits in California and as of the 4th of December will be filing suits in Mississippi.
It is amazing what we are letting this guy get away with. Now he doesn’t even have to follow the Constitution. I will be discussing the other Obama scandals in the upcoming week, but everyday is a new scandal with this man it is hard to keep up. In the meantime, pony up the Birth Certificate Obama!
This is great news for conservative Republicans. For the last month we have been waiting with bated breath for the outcome of the Georgia senatorial race. We knew if we lost to Jim Martin, who Obama was heavily backing, that Obama would basically have free reign as they would have an unstoppable majority.
Chambliss won the contest by nearly 60 percent. It was 57 to 43 in favor of Chambliss. You often hear people say that one person can’t make a difference, in this case, not only did it make a difference, it has saved our country from becoming a completely socialist nation under Obama. Palin went down to Georgia to endorse Chambliss. So much for her being a liability to the Republican party. The National Republican Trust PAC spent 1.2 million dollars to defeat Jim Martin. As far as political campaigns go that is small potatoes. So to pull off such a defeat when you got big league hitters such as Bill Clinton and Obama coming out in support of a candidate, shows how much this country is rejecting liberal talking heads-or at least Georgia.
The election of Saxby Chambliss shows that while we are down, we are not out and we still have an opportunity to make sure Obama has a very rough four years getting his radical agenda through. With crazy legislation like FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act), ENDA (Employment Non Discrimination Act) and other controversial bills being proposed and being that Obama owes favors to these people for tossing the Constitution aside and electing a potential foreigner to the office of President, we have to make sure we keep him in check.
So congratulations Georgia and thanks for seeing beyond the hype and electing a candidate that the Left absolutely tried to defeat. It shows with some gumption, a little money and a really good slingshot you too can bring down Goliath. But we have to keep up the fight. This is only the first of many long battles before us. God bless all of you who are not backing down, we need all of you and your spirit to continue “to bring forth a new nation” as we did with our first Republican leader seven score and eight years ago.
However you look at it this Election Day is going to be one for the history books. We are either going to elect the first female Vice President in Sarah Palin-God willing. Or we are going to elect the first Black president-God help us if we do. Either way history is made. There is much riding on this election. God-ordained marriage is on the chopping block to be replaced with genderless, numberless marriage. People talk about Mormons and polygamy but if it comes back it won’t be because of the Mormon Church who has put every cent behind Proposition 8 and standing for one man, one woman marriage-it will be because gay marriage ripped the institution to shreds and allowed bigamy, polygamy, polyandry and all other forms of counterfeit marriage to take hold. All those who voted no on Prop. 8 will only have themselves to blame.
The scariest part of this election is Obama himself. He has refused to release his birth certificate to verify that he is indeed a natural born citizen. He has hidden his aunt who is in this country illegally and gets welfare benefits. She has a millionnaire nephew and instead of taking care of his aunt she is on welfare-how sweet of him! She has even used her benefits to give money to his campaign. How sleazy is that? He talks about spreading the wealth-hey Obama, how about spreading your own wealth to your half brother in Africa and your welfare aunt here! Not since Kennedy has there been such a massive cover-up of a presidential hopeful. Kennedy was so beloved that any negative portrayal of him was always buried by the media. Much like Obama today. Whether it was Kennedy’s ill health (he had back trouble) or his ties to the mob, Kennedy always came out smelling like a flower. Kennedy used the power of the presidency to spy on Dr. King-a private citizen. Not much different than digging into the background of “Joe the Plumber” for having the audacity to question Obama. The two candidates are eerily similar. The difference is should a modern version of the Cuban Missile Crisis land at Obama’s feet, we are all dead. Joe Biden has already warned us about that.
Should Obama win, should marriage lose in all 3 states [California, Florida and Arizona], should parents lose the right to be notified of their daughter’s abortion, should the Personhood Amendment fail in Colorado, we will be propelled into a socialist society. Obama has called the Constitution of our United States-“a flawed document.” To me that is the rhetoric of a man looking to overthrow the present government and replace it with a dictatorship. Maya Angelou once said, “When someone shows you who they are-believe them.” We are not believing Obama. He has shown us his true colors but being the master orator he has been able to talk his way out of every perilous situation he has found himself in. It is time we stop and ponder-who this man is, where he came, what his record reflects and stop looking at his skin color as some kind of “free pass” from scrutiny. We are electing a President not the next American Idol. This is not about popularity, but truly life and death. A ballot for Obama is a vote for the Culture of Death and for a man who sees his own grandchild as “punishment,” has voted in favor of infanticide four times, turned his back on his own family, well such a man is capable of anything. Do you really want to find out what that is? I know I don’t!
