International: Bam's collectivist mandate, Fidel praises Barack, Anti-Americans rule U.N.

That's What Marxists Do ... As I see it, Barack Obama was sent as the Marxist suffering messiah for a malicious movement to establish the globally controlled state — not necessarily the Marxist reigning messiah, though he may "hope." That is, his job is to destroy free America and if necessary, go down with the ship of state. In the near future, I anticipate issuing a further exploration of this view. This being the case, all that this corrupt regime of usurpation and insurrection has to do, to be successful, is to destroy the wealth of the middle class, while building the ranks of the state-dependent and thus allegiance-compelled proletariat. That is what Marxists do. That is what George Soros does. (renewamerica.com)

Bumper crop of U.S. astroturf thanks to foreign collectivist ... George Soros is one of the big sugar daddies of the Democratic Party. He also is the ruler of an archipelago of so-called 527 groups that pose as non-partisan activists groups, but in fact are often hyper-partisan (such as MoveOn.Org), and are often employed by Democrats to influence elections. Soros, for years, has been the top funder of such groups. His influence among Democrats is widespread and enduring (and was well-documented by David Horowitz and Richard Poe in their book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party). His pet think-tank, the Center for American Progress, has been the idea factory and employment agency (think Van Jones, among others) for President Obama. There is no proof, but there certainly is reason to suspect that Soros also has been working in cahoots with David Axelrod, Obama's former campaign strategist and now his numero uno domestic policy adviser. Soros has expertise in influencing our nation's foreign policy by forming faux astroturf groups that operate under the guise of being independent. (americanthinker.com)

If it's good enough for the President, it's good enough for Congress ... The biggest problem in Washington is that we re-elect the very people who have created our problems on the hope that in the next term they will solve them. Once in Washington, politicians realize that they have little influence unless they play the political games, which leads to partisanship. In order to get a longer tenure, they do favors for this or that special interest or lobbying group, in exchange for campaign money and votes. We re-elect them because the longer their tenure, the more influence they have, and the more our state gets from the national coffers. We need a constitutional amendment that will place a limit of two terms on every elected office. We must prohibit anyone from becoming a paid lobbyist who has served in elected office for a period of seven years. This will break the chain of connections that special interests have on our government. (desmoinesregister.com)

Chávez wows U.S. union thugs ... "The arrival of President Obama, who can deny it, generates, has generated and will continue to generate big expectations," Chávez told a meeting of U.S. union leaders at the Venezuelan mission to the U.N. In New York for his scheduled address before the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, Chávez praised Obama's Wednesday speech before the same body, noting that the U.S. president said Washington is ready to work to promote peace. But Chávez also said the White House and the foreign policy it crafts is unlikely to live up to the president's lofty words. "Sometimes one gets the sensation that there are two Obamas. One, who gave the speech, is good. The other, really, makes decisions that are contradictory to his speech," he said. (google.com)

Obama: We suck ... In the early 1980s, while planning a vacation in Latin America, I went to bookstores to look for histories of the region. All I could find were Marxist tracts arguing that "the people" were exploited by greedy corporations and military dictators, all propped up by the United States. Available literature on Latin America today includes much more sensible accounts. But some people, including Barack Obama, whose college thesis written in those years has never been made public, seem stuck in a time warp in which the United States is the bad guy. (townhall.com)

Obamunism troubles U.S. ... President Obama's diversity czar at the Federal Communications Commission has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to "step down" in favor of minorities, prescribed policies to make liberal talk radio more successful, and described Hugo Chávez's rise to power in Venezuela "an incredible revolution." Mark Lloyd's provocative comments - most made during a tenure at the liberal Center for American Progress think tank - are giving fodder to critics who say Mr. Obama has appointed too many "czars" to government positions that don't require congressional approval.

Biden sets Stockholm Syndrome ... In a speech to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden said he was not against insurance companies making a profit. “Look, we need some good ground rules" for insurance companies, Biden said at the Gaylord National Resort at National Harbor, Md. “I want to get this clear. I want insurance companies to make money." (cnsnews.com)

Shame on SEIU-AFSCME Dems ... Governor Quinn is not my employer, but that didn’t stop him from ordering me to designate a union representative when he signed Executive Order 09-15*. He ordered, “The State shall recognize a representative designated by a majority of individual providers in the Home-based Support Services Program.” This, despite also writing that we “are not State employees, and are not eligible to receive statutory benefits.” If we are not State employees, how is this his business? I am an individual provider in Illinois’ Home-based Support Services Program. I provide support services to my adult son in our home. My husband is the employer with an FEIN. Before the ink was dry on the Executive Order, my telephone started ringing, the doorbell started ringing and my mailbox started filling up with brightly colored literature boasting how the SEIU was going to improve my life. Then AFSCME decided to get involved and they started calling, coming to my front door and mailing literature. Without regard for my personal privacy, the Governor gave SEIU my name, home address and telephone number. Then when AFSCME requested this personal information, he gave it to them. Kansas government protected their service providers’ privacy when SEIU went calling; why didn’t Quinn? Is it because SEIU is a key supporter of the current and former Governor of Illinois?

ACORN-SEIU represents Obama ... The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is the most liberal, untrustworthy organization in the United States and has been supported by your tax dollars and President Obama for years. ACORN, an organization self-proclaimed as being the nation's largest community organization for the rights of low- to moderate-income families, actually is a far left, liberal activist group whose mission is to wear away democracy in lieu of their socialistic monocracy. Originally founded in 1970 as Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now by Wade Rathke, a so-called pioneer for the welfare rights movement and author of "Citizen Wealth: Winning the Campaign to Save Working Families," today's ACORN promotes a strategy for getting Americans on welfare and an agenda socialist-minded liberals embrace.

How important is ACORN-SEIU? ... Barack Obama gave five interviews last Sunday, and only one interviewer bothered to ask him about the ACORN scandal. ACORN is the leftist activist organization that lost its federal funds last week in a Congressional vote that was not even close. Obama's answer to his lone ACORN question was amazing. He brazened it out: "Frankly," said the President, "it's not something I've followed closely. This is not the biggest issue facing the country. It's not something I'm paying a lot of attention to." Not something he's paying a lot of attention to. This is the same Barack Obama who said, in an address to ACORN in 2007, "I have been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career." One of Barack Obama's jobs out of college was with ACORN as a community organizer. Obama hired ACORN affiliates for voter registration. Obama was a speaker at ACORN seminars. Obama was their lawyer. And now he says that the enormous and growing ACORN scandal is not something he is "paying a lot of attention to"? And that the ACORN scandal is "not the biggest issue facing the country"? I beg to differ. I think a national organization that is dedicated to stealth revolution, Communism, ripping off the American taxpayer, and subverting free markets, among other insidious objectives, is of enormous import.

It's not you, it's me ... The IRS announced Wednesday it was severing ties with ACORN, joining a growing list of government agencies to end relationships with the community activist group. The Internal Revenue Service said it would no longer include ACORN in its volunteer tax assistance program. The program offered free tax advice to about 3 million low- and moderate-income tax filers this spring. ACORN provided help on about 25,000 returns, the IRS said. ACORN, meanwhile, said it had already suspended its tax program, raising questions about who broke up with whom. (news.yahoo.com)

We don't need no stinkin' Inspectors General ... An internal watchdog at the Justice Department said Monday he was reviewing the agency’s involvement with the activist group ACORN. ACORN has come under fire for a hidden camera video involving a couple posing as a prostitute and her pimp. On the video, two ACORN workers apparently advise the couple to lie about her profession and launder her earnings to get housing aid. Inspector General Glenn Fine wrote Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, that his office would examine whether ACORN sought or received any Justice Department grant money, or conducted any reviews of ACORN’s use of such money. More than a dozen state and local authorities are also scrutinizing ACORN, including Maryland’s attorney general. (svherald.com)

ACORN-SEIU never gets enough ... Amazing. In one fell swoop, the lawsuit (a) gives Fox a reason to keep covering the story, (b) presents a thorny legal issue that’ll attract media to the scandal who might not otherwise have touched it, and (c) makes ACORN look like they’re trying to punish people who exposed taxpayer-funded corruption. Which, of course, they are. (hotair.com)

You can't touch ACORN-SEIU Dems ... The scandal initially appeared to have the potential to embarrass Democrats and the president, as ACORN's political action committee endorsed Obama for the presidency in 2008. The group backs some of Obama's policies, including his healthcare reform, has close ties to labor unions and last year registered 1.3 million voters in areas where Democrats poll strongly. Obama in 1992 did some work for Project Vote, an arm of the group, and he frequently told voters during last year's presidential campaign that he understood their concerns because he had worked as a community organizer. "ACORN has the Obama administration's ear. They have this continuing influence. They are cheerleaders for radical policies and the Democratic leadership and President Obama listens to them," said Matthew Valdum, senior editor at the Capital Research Group. But the scandal will only sway key independent voters if close ties between ACORN's alleged malpractice and government leaders are proved, said Alan Abramowitz, political science professor at Emory University in Atlanta.

Must. Defend. ACORN-SEIU. ... Here's the latest: The unlikely duo of Barney Frank and John Conyers are now calling for an investigation into the embattled group. They wrote a letter to the non-partisan Congressional Research Service. OK, it's not an "investigation" per se — that would be crazy; that would make too much sense. Instead, they've asked for a "comprehensive report" on all activities and funding surrounding ACORN; whether or not Congress violated the Constitution in voting to de-fund ACORN, and if the two kids who went undercover violated any laws.

D.C. Dems too busy to probe union-backed, tax-funded fraud group ... Majority Leader Harry Reid rebuffed a Republican request that he call Senate hearings and an investigation into recent allegations against the scandal-tainted community organizing group ACORN. Reid, D-Nev., said Tuesday that he would not ask the Senate committee chairmen or Congress “to do anything that would distract from efforts to address” health care, climate change, an overhaul of the nation’s financial regulatory system and oversight of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Obama-UAW in costly, shameful P2P ... President Obama approved the tariff increases at 35 percent, 30 percent and 25 percent for the next three years, beginning Sept. 26.This is ostensibly more quid pro quo with the United Steel Workers Union that runs the U.S. tire industry and the Democratic Party. More dichotomy flows in the rhetoric from the Obama administration. One side of the tongue advocates free trade while the other side whiplashes a major trading partner and financier. China responds in livid fashion. Obama cannot equitably execute his obligations to all Americans with his incessant acts of favoritism and protectionism. The assertion that such tariffs are good for American industry and jobs will not pass the test of being positive for all Americans. Domestic tire producers will adjust their pricing just under the new tariff-revised Chinese pricing. Raising the tire prices 35 percent on all American families is not a win-win for the U.S. Giving GM $50 billion and Chrysler $18 billion for the UAW will induce taxes and inflation commensurately.

Controversial community organizers abandon key target state ... North Carolina's ACORN office has laid off all eight of its employees after scandal rocked the national office of the grassroots organizing group. Many workers have continued the past three weeks as unpaid volunteers for the nonprofit organization, assisting low- and moderate-income people with issues ranging from landlord fights to mortgage payments.

Union chases jobs ... Jet-engine maker Pratt & Whitney Monday spurned offers from the Machinists union and the state to cut labor costs Monday in announcing it will move 1,000 jobs out state by 2011. The transfer of engine repair work to Georgia and Asia in a cost-cutting move will shut Pratt’s Cheshire plant and shift some operations from its East Hartford facility beginning in the second quarter of next year.

Typical labor-state blues ... Back in June of 2004, Jessica Elgie, a Special Education teacher in Buffalo, was sentenced in State Supreme Court for the crime of Endangering The Welfare Of A Child. The child in question was her own five year old adopted son, Casey. While at home one day, Elgie's little boy swallowed laundry detergent and then, despite her son becoming violently ill, Elgie waited hours before taking him to a hospital where he died. Once Elgie was sentenced, the Buffalo School System suspended her -- with pay -- as is required by law, and then began the process of trying to fire her. It took more than 14 months, and cost taxpayers close to $200,000 in costs before an arbitrator ruled that the School District had the right to fire Elgie. Elgie's case is not an isolated one. Through a Freedom Of Information request, 2 On Your Side has learned that over the last six years, Buffalo taxpayers have paid millions of dollars to teachers not to teach. (wgrz.com)

Big government costly ... If you rely on big government, you'll pay big. Is that what people want — a redistribution of wealth through said taxation and a general welfare system that provides cradle-to-grave entitlements like they have in some socialistic European and Canadian governments? People elected a socialist president — Obama — so are we on the way like socialistic countries? (baxterbulletin.com)

International Collectivism

Obama sets global collectivist mandate ... "Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world's problems alone," Obama said. The U.S. leader, enjoying a global spotlight, urged international leaders to move beyond "an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction."

Consider the source ... Cuban leader Fidel Castro on Wednesday praised U.S. President Barack Obama for taking a “courageous” stand on climate change, but he said it was not right that the American leader tried to make people believe that humanity could survive under the laws of capitalism.

In Trotskyite Lula We Trust ... Brazil’s president said Wednesday that Iran is entitled to the same rights as any other country to use nuclear energy for peaceful ends. President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said Wednesday that Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad assured him in meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly that his country’s nuclear program was intended solely for peaceful purposes and that he had no reason to doubt him.
