Seriously, how do you feel about a political propaganda film for Barack Obama being shown to school kids? It’s not in support of America but in support of Obama. It’s not about support for government but for Obama. It’s made by Oprah, by the video production company she owns and runs. It was planned to be shown to school kids but when it was shown in Wisconsin the parents complained so much that the principal and the School Superintendent promised never to show it again. You can see the video Here.
“Hudson Middle School leaders are apologizing to furious Conservative parents for showing their kids an Obama Propaganda Video to encourage youth volunteerism last week.
According to Fox News, the video was produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios in 2009 for Barack Hussein Obama. It’s four minutes and nineteen seconds long.
The video opens with an iconic red and blue image of Obama’s face and Obama is speaking.
Hollywood actors and actresses ask children to volunteer more and be nice to people.
At 2 minutes 35 seconds into the video a rapper wearing an Obama ‘08 shirt gives a political message. The lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers pledges allegiance to Barack Obama and kisses his muscles as he says Obama’s name in time index 3:17.
The rapper in the Obama ‘08 shirt reappears at time index 3:45 .
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher appear at time index 3:56 and pledge allegiance to Obama and tell people to serve the President! At that point, a big red and blue Obama mosaic fades in with the message – “Be the Change!”
This is propaganda, pure and simple. Oprah is beside herself to prove an African-American can be a great President but there are boundaries she should respect. Her video does not belong in a school, even up to and including a university. It’s a political video. It has nothing to do with educating children, at least not in an American way to be the best individual you can be.
Telling kids to work for free is bad enough because it’s anti-American. Americans work for themselves. They expect to be paid for their work with money. Chinese work for China. Americans work to get paid. Chinese expect to be pushed around by their neighbors. Americans including Oprah resent being pushed around but the Oprah video wants people to work, not like Oprah who collects fantastically huge amounts of money, but for free. People want to be paid and should be paid for their work, even children.
American Unions have a lot to say about that. The Unions would be furious if college students showed up at public schools and announced they would teach for free. That’s one thing Oprah’s video wants people to do. Work for free.
Americans want to pay for what they get. Socialists and totalitarians want people to work for them, not for themselves. That’s what America was based on and that’s what Oprah should know. This is a very bad video. It’s should never be shown again to Americans.
The Evil Genius of Political Retaliation, Bridget Anne Kelly, Mr. Christie’s deputy chief of staff for legislative and intergovernmental affairs was fired by Governor Christie. Bridget found a diabolical way to pay-back political enemies. Close four lanes of the George Washington Bridge. A mastermind of retaliation, she emailed David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s at the Port Authority which runs the George Washington Bridge. Bridget’s email said: “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.”
Northampton township also knows a bit about illicitly using the power of government to punish enemies and reward friends. The Supervisors just fired a Democrat and hired a Republican to do the video recording. Several years ago a supervisor sent an e-mail reminding potential contributors how well they do when Republicans ran the show.
Capitalist culture was undeniably lessened in 2013. America, no longer as free as it once was, has moved more towards Russia. Cuba and China in the tyranny of Socialism. Obamacare put another nail in the Freedom Culture.
America is no longer softly Socialist. The year 2013 showed the Tyranny of the Majority, the Oppression of All by All is in full plumage. Lincoln was 33 1/3% correct in his Gettysburg Address: “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.
Certainly government is “of the people” everywhere and at all times. Government is not “by the people”. It is by some people; -an Elite, Powerful, Rapacious, Dangerous, full of palace revolts and Machievellian intrigues; the Nanny State; the IRS targeting Tea Party groups; massive NSA spying; Obama and Hillary dissembling over Benghazi; the failure of the federal health insurance exchange rollout; government regulations that are so complex and vague it is impossible to know if you are in compliance. E.g., the 70,000-plus pages of Internal Revenue Service regulations and the 30,000-plus pages of Obamacare regulations
The Food and Drug Administration is supposed to identify bad food or drugs. It has morphed into an agency that keeps potentially beneficial drugs off the market and now is even banning DNA testing to stifle our ability to know what diseases to which we may be prone, thereby blocking our ability to take potential corrective or preventative action. The FDA has gone from being a protector to a Destroyer of Health and Liberty. Hard Socialism or Soft Tyranny??
The IRS was set up to collect taxes. It became a government agency to deny the right of free and protected speech, as shown not only in the harassment of Tea Party groups, but in demanding that certain (but not all) traditionally tax-exempt groups start providing their contributor lists to the IRS. Groups that most often stand for liberty and less government are the primary targets. Big Government as The Limiter of Liberty. What a coincidence.
Sure, Obama ruined most of the Medical Insurance Market but the cost of medical care drove everything. Of course, government regulations for decades helped increase the cost of medical care. So whose fault is Obamacare? Obama’s. No denial is possible. But, and this is a major but, a big part of the high cost of Obamacare is the high cost of health care which are caused by the loss of a free market for medical care.
High Medical Costs could have been fixed without a government takeover and the implementation of a government run totalitarian style medical system worthy of the Soviet Union but it would require a lot of new information being generated about health care and the identification of the costs caused by government regulation.
One example is the cost of licensing health care practitioners. Government licensing the professions is itself un-constitutional. Government was never given the power to license doctors, accountants, engineers and other professional people.
Another huge problem for health care practitioners is high liability insurance cost which is caused at least in large part by government regulations and human greed.
The jury system is partly responsible because jurors have compassion as well as a desire to help victims, even when the victims are victims of their own stupidity or their own greed. Jury awards way out of proportion to injury or even despite no medical cause for injury, just a large insurance company that will have to pay an unfortunate victim with a greedy lawyer driving the immoral rewards.
Government Medical Care is here to stay. Even the advocates of repeal don’t really want repeal. they want to tweak the government system which means keep Obamacare but change some elements of it.
So tough luck for Americans who are innocent victims of Obama.
There’s an even a bigger set of issues here caused by a President who has become an outcast among most Americans because of his evident distain for American values, his bigotry towards certain classes and races of Americans, his detachment from the problems he has caused, his rationalizations, his retention of an impeached Attorney General, his silent support of the ideas of Reverend Wright and many additional issues whereby President Obama has demonstrated why he is the worst American President ever. Would that the man would have compassion and step down. Vice President Biden, as phony a man as he is would not be as bad.
According to Rolling Stone Magazine Wall Street is cheating public sector employees by charging their pension funds for management of their money. Talk about not seeing the forest because of the trees, the problem with the public pension funds is the amount of tax money in them and the bloated payouts, not the excessive management fees. Of course the bloated fees are wrong but so is the excess money taken from the taxpayers.
You can check for yourself. Get a copy of the budget from any municipality and find the amount in “funds”. Find especially the amount of money in pension funds although it might be hidden from people like you who want to find it. Also check the amount of money paid to the retirees last year. Does it make sense? Several times I’ve done that and found some pension funds paying out say $222 thousand last year and the pension fund has $24 million in it. that’s 100 times more in the fund than was paid out.
The bureaucracy doesn’t want anyone monkeying with their schemes so they keep most of the information away from people or try to trick them into thinking it’s complicated to calculate how much should be in a pension fund for each employee. That’s utter nonsense. It’s possible to calculate with great accuracy how much money should be in a fund to pay it out over a certain period. That answer will never be displayed to the public which goes to prove corruption with pension funds.
Former United States President George W. Bush was booed when he appeared on the video monitor at today’s memorial for Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg, South Africa, according to the White House pool report, which cited local press outlets.
Meanwhile, when the images President Obama and Michelle popped up, there was a 30-second “deafening roar,” the pooler wrote.
Bush has done an far greater amount for South Africa than Obama. But Obama is much better at crafting his public image and saying the right things.
Bush personally saved the lives of millions of South Africans with his President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, or PEPFAR, ensuring AIDS drugs are available to South Africa’s impoverished masses.
But there are racial issues in South Africa. Even though four American presidents thought Mandela should be honored, the crowd booed President Bush.
In another stunning event President Obama shook the hand of Cuban President Raul Castro.
President Obama has complete control of his hand. He decided to shake the hand of Castro. The significance of that handshake is very important.
Human Rights Watch accuses Cuba of : Torture, Arbitrary Imprisonment, Unfair Trials and Extrajudicial Executions. British historian Hugh Thomas, in his study Cuba or the pursuit of freedom stated that “perhaps” 5,000 executions had taken place by 1970. Over 1.2 million Cubans escaped to America, many in small boats, rafts or using only small flotation devices. The hell that is the Cuban government has been extensively documented. Cuban’s deserve better from the President of America.
Why would anyone shake hands with a despot or his brother? Why did Obama do it?
The promise of freedom to Black South Africans still remains to be done in neighboring Zimbabwe where president for life Robert Mugabe has his country in chains. Same for many African nations where dictators or presidents for life keep their people down while engorging their Swiss bank accounts.
More Nelson Mandela’s need to rise among their people. Freedom is an elusive commodity around the globe where it’s more in fashion as a goal then a reality. Liberty requires a method of government that will allow it to exist and flourish like it used to do in America until Obama took control. Too bad Mandela stopped working for freedom. It’s great he took root in South Africa, an Eden like location that unfortunately has the wrong kinds of people and government systems.
Everyone should life bathed in Liberty but too many wrong-minded souls have different ideas. Perhaps in some distant future South Africa will achieve a non-racial Liberty. Chances are things will worsen. Why does that seem true? Look at America where more freedoms disappear daily. Liberty is hunted round the globe.
Subterfuge, fraud, deceit, and deception are the fuel for the engines of political power. The Presidency of the United States is cloaked behind a political party. No president gets elected without the voters being influenced by the intelligentsia and the quotidian. The influence is lifelong. The people are certainly mislead. The influence is the crime. The prize is the power. The fraud is “the issues” as framed by the candidates. Deceit is the back story. “I will Serve” is deception. “I will control” is the true story. Control needs power. Power provides control
Obamacare is un-Constitutional except as a tax. The conclusion is accepted even though few read the opinion which condemned everything about Obamacare except for the tax. The tax became the trigger for the control. Why did U.S. Justice Roberts decide The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional except as a tax when there is no way to enact the tax without implementing the unconstitutional controls?
The Constitution makes it the duty of government to protect the rights of each individual. Forcing a purchase is therefore against the constitution on several grounds such as the right to property, the right to decide and the right to engage in individual actions.
What is a Right?
“A “right” is a moral principle defining and sanctioning a man’s freedom of action in a social context. There is only one fundamental right (all the others are its consequences or corollaries): a man’s right to his own life. Life is a process of self-sustaining and self-generated action; the right to life means the right to engage in self-sustaining and self-generated action—which means: the freedom to take all the actions required by the nature of a rational being for the support, the furtherance, the fulfillment and the enjoyment of his own life. (Such is the meaning of the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.)
The concept of a “right” pertains only to action—specifically, to freedom of action. It means freedom from physical compulsion, coercion or interference by other men.
Thus, for every individual, a right is the moral sanction of a positive—of his freedom to act on his own judgment, for his own goals, by his own voluntary, uncoerced choice. As to his neighbors, his rights impose no obligations on them except of a negative kind: to abstain from violating his rights.
The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.
Bear in mind that the right to property is a right to action, like all the others: it is not the right to an object, but to the action and the consequences of producing or earning that object. It is not a guarantee that a man will earn any property, but only a guarantee that he will own it if he earns it. It is the right to gain, to keep, to use and to dispose of material values.”
That’s the most succinct summary of Individual Rights that exists. Count the ways PPACA violates the Rights of each individual.
The PPACA taxes people who do not have a need for health care. It taxes people who cannot afford health care. It even taxes people without the money to pay for health care. Why should health care could be subject to a tax? Is there no limit to the power of government? Well, after the dumb analysis of Chief Justice Roberts there is no counterbalance for the power to tax. The government controls the vaccinations. It controls the vaccines. It controls the vaccinators, the doctors, nurses and assistants. It controls the health care industry, the people and the markets. It controls the insurance companies. It controls the procedures. It controls the total health care system including the prices of the products. Then it forces people to buy an insurance policy or pay a fine. If this isn’t 1984 style power then there’s no such thing as power. The ACA is not only a tax. It’s a massive list of Constitutional Violations government was never granted the power to do. The fact that it presumed un-granted power is more than sufficient to eliminate PPACA. It should be repealed.
Imagine if Barack Obama had run in the Primary Election as a Democrat and lost but ran a secret campaign to get his name on the Republican ballot, ran as a Republican and was elected. He would be a Democrat President because he didn’t change his party but was elected because he ran a secret campaign on the Republican ballot. Obama didn’t do that but Barbara Bucknum did it in Northampton Township and both Dan Rattigan and Bud Baldwin did it in Upper Makefield.
Here’s’ some background about Politics in Upper Makefield. The Democrats are sort of taking over by stealth but so far there’s only one Democrat, Mary Ryan, who won both a “Normal” Democrat Primary and a Municipal election on the board. She was joined by Republican Dan Rattigan who lost a “Normal” Primary election but he won a supervisor seat because he also ran a secret campaign on the Democrat Ballot in the primary. Rattigan was defeated at the Republican Primary election but won as a write-in Democrat candidate. In the fall election he received both Democrat and Republican votes. He didn’t have to change his party after he was elected but he did. So today there are two Democrats on the board of supervisors and Incumbent Supervisor Bud Baldwin in doing it right now. If Baldwin wins today, the Democrats will take over the majority in Upper Makefield, a Heavy Republican district.
A similar situation is going on in Northampton where Republican Tax Collector Barbara Bucknum was defeated in the republican Primary in May but was appointed as a Democrat Candidate for the November election. Barbara is still registered Republican. SO she is collecting Republican votes from people who like her and from Democrats who are supporting her.
These are bi-partisan elections. Bucks County may be leading the new wave of candidates who run on two parties in one election. How is that possible?
How can a Republican get on the Democrat ballot? It’s simple, really. The above cases show two ways. Both work.
The first way is to run a write-in campaign on the opposite ballot while running as a registered candidate on the ballot of your own party. the trick is to run a write in campaign when there is no candidate running on the opposite party. That’s the way both Dan Rattigan and Bud Baldwin got on the Democrat Ballot while there were running as Republicans. There is no rule that a Democrat must run as a Democrat on the Democrat Ballot.
That means a Tea Party Republican can run a write-in campaign on either or both ballots and if there is no opposition candidate they would be on the ballot of whatever party ballot they targeted with the write-in campaign. In Upper Makefield, the Democrats did not have a candidate on the Primary ballot when Dan Rattigan ran as supervisor candidate. Same for Bud Baldwin.
Is this a New Political Strategy to exploit or invade a political party system? .
