Obama Calls On Marx To Fix The Debt Crisis

                                       

Obama has a conundrum that is becoming more complex as the election approaches; he must campaign for reelection, but on what? Defending his bailout of the auto industry is likely to lose support rather than gain support. He can’t point to improvements in the economy, because those are dubious at best. His signature accomplishment, Obama Care, the health care that no one wants, has the majority of Americans hoping for appeal. He can cite the stimulus, one of the biggest scams in the history of the world, but if you weren’t in line for some of the millions that were passed out to Obama cronies, you might be upset over paying for it over the next five decades. It is hard to keep a straight face and boast of the food stamp program reaching out to nearly 50 million citizens. Most Americans are not impressed with our loss of sovereignty and the fact that our borders are open. Obama running as a Peacenik and then engaging in four new wars is even disconcerting to the most deluded Socialist ideologues. Unfortunately, arrogance and Narcissism are not really regarded as positive attributes and few Americans are interested in Obama’s golf game; consequently, Obama is left with almost nothing to run on as a positive accomplishment, he has the loyalty of his propaganda bureaus of the state directed media and these can be used to attack his opponent and the contributions of wealthy Democrats and George Soros will be waiting for his campaign of character assassination.

To offset the deficit created by not having a positive message, he has already resorted to the tried and true methods described by Marx and Engels and refined by Alinsky, that is class struggle or class warfare.

Unwilling to enact austerity measures, our president is desperately searching the teleprompters for the message that will redeem him and his legacy from history’s condemnation of his failures. Grasping at straws with the panic of a drowning man, Obama once again resorts to the Community Agitating tactics that heave defined his limited experience and accomplishments. Class warfare, the revolutionary technique of struggle defined by Marx and Engels, creates the animosity needed to break down the cultural aspects of a society so that class struggle or the Socialist Revolution can gain traction.

Obama is faced with the real possibility of austerity measures to reduce the budget or defaulting on our loans because congress wont raise the debt ceiling that Obama refused to raise in the past. Irony is always hardest on those who have no vision of the future.

Karl Marx and Frederick Engels

Manifesto of the Communist Party

1848

The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.

Freeman and slave, patrician and plebian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

In the earlier epochs of history, we find almost everywhere a complicated arrangement of society into various orders, a manifold gradation of social rank. In ancient Rome we have patricians, knights, plebians, slaves; in the Middle Ages, feudal lords, vassals, guild-masters, journeymen, apprentices, serfs; in almost all of these classes, again, subordinate gradations.

The modern bourgeois society that has sprouted from the ruins of feudal society has not done away with class antagonisms. It has but established new classes, new conditions of oppression, new forms of struggle in place of the old ones.

Our epoch, the epoch of the bourgeoisie, possesses, however, this distinct feature: it has simplified class antagonisms. Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps, into two great classes directly facing each other — bourgeoisie and proletariat.

From the serfs of the Middle Ages sprang the chartered burghers of the earliest towns. From these burgesses the first elements of the bourgeoisie were developed.

Thus he manipulates the public, to resist his policy and direction pits starving kids against those who fly private jets around the world; ironically, many of his supporters make up a large percentage of those who fly private jets around the world and Obama is the one who flies the ultimate flying jet, but the image is meant to give those with limited cerebral capacities an image to concentrate on, an image to blame, and an image to hate. Thus he deflects blame for the economy and his dismal performance and directs it towards a somewhat fictional entity that will allow the “mob mentality” of the witless and unthinking to have a common enemy and scapegoat.

In a press conference on June 29, 2011, President Obama outlined his strategy for defeating the Republicans on the debt issue and his strategy for the upcoming election. This is to be a war of classes or Marx’s eternal class struggle. He and his followers against those who hate children, medical research, newborn puppies, and grandmother’s apple pie. The poor who struggle to survive and feed their children against those who fly in corporate jets and never need to sacrifice. It is the Noble Poor against them, the mean spirited and uncaring rich.

He wants to put the Republicans on the defensive, when he has no other means of explanation or attack. If the Republicans rise to the sucker bait, they may look bad with Obama using a well practiced strategy from the Communist Alynsky’s play book, but it will accomplish precious little in convincing Republicans that he has finally resolved the country’s economic woes and is well on the way to reviving the nearly bankrupt economy.

In a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black, Obama uses the logic of the Chicago street thug to identify with his followers by referring to the congress and it’s recent vacations.

“I’ve been doing Afghanistan, bin Laden and the Greek crisis. You stay here. Let’s get it done.”

It was so daring and resourceful of Obama to fly into Afghanistan and assassinate Osama in-between golf games.

The president maintains that Democrats have compromised their principles by agreeing to billions worth of budget cuts that will hurt the Democrat voters. Yet Republicans are refusing to yield by not agreeing to eliminate tax breaks for owners of rich oil companies and corporate jets. Thus if Republicans get their way, there will be a one-sided or unbalanced deal that will the raise the debt ceiling but will force the government to make devastating cuts that aren’t necessary.

“If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships,” Obama said. “[It] might compromise the National Weather Services. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate-jet owner can get a tax break?”

Even Obama might be without clean socks!

Although President Obama made the tax on corporate jets the primary issue of his news conference, the tax involves less than one-tenth of one percent of his target for reducing the federal deficit. The change in the provision would put $3 billion in the treasury over a decade; Democrats want companies to write off the cost over seven years, instead of five years. Airplanes used for commercial flight or charter, are already written off in seven years.

Obama mentioned the depreciation on corporate jets six times in his press conference as a means to vilify Republicans for wanting to include tax increases and insisting on spending cuts in the measure which must be passed by August 2, the date that the Treasury is projecting that the US will no longer be able to service its debt.

“It would be hard for the Republicans to stand there and say that the tax break for corporate jets is sufficiently important that we’re not willing to come to the table and get a deal done,”

Obama’s pleading is laughable except for its dramatic appeal to the masses. The $3 billion proposal represents 0.075 % of the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that Obama is supposedly seeking through spending cuts and tax increases.

Hoping to win public support and force Republicans to give in to his plans, Obama is gambling with the country’s Economic future to continue to advance his version of a Marxist Utopia. It’s a gamble that has a ticking clock and time is running out on his Marxist Ideology and the U.S. as well. Republicans are demanding steep budget cuts and no tax increases to keep the TEA Party loyalists in check, for their own political futures are not insured: Obama is trying to save face and keep some semblance of the Socialist agenda on tap while trying to demonstrate a sense of reaching for a bipartisan solution, a situation that is humorous after his dismissal of Republican input before the 2010 election.

Obama:

“The question now is, are we going to step up and get this done?”

Mr President giving press conferences and channeling Marx isn’t going to resolve this issue any sooner.

    Bred by Marxists, raised by Marxists, mentored by Marxists, befriended by Marxists using the phraseology and jingoism of Marxists: Redistribution of Wealth and Class Warfare,I don’t know why people assume he is a Marxist. Yet the Socialists and Communists defend him without question, it is strange why so many consider him to be a Marxist: it almost defies reason.

    Marxist might in fact be the wrong term for this clown. I’d actually call him a Lenin/Stalin socialist myself. His loathing for our basic ideals is and has always been evident. His use of the co-opted media and the government in general is reminiscence of the old USSR and other failed regimes.

    One only has to look at his war against Boeing as to his true leanings! He is allowing the NLRB to try to force a privately own company where and how to do business! And what do we get from Comrade Obama?!

    From Right Wing News, but actually all over the web:
    “The President today put distance between his administration and the labor board stressing that it is an independent agency.”
    “We can’t afford to have labor and management fighting all the time, at a time when we’re competing against Germany and China and other countries that want to sell goods all around the world, Obama said at a Wednesday’s White House press conference.
    In other words, his slant is a company has no right under our free enterprise system to act in any way other that what our benevolent dictator says he can. And his way is to force Boeing to toe the line and cow tow to the unions!

    Skook, you’ve put out another brilliant essay. But as evidenced by Liberal1 above as an example, the libs do not and will not get it! The stands taken by this President and backed by the enemies of this country and its ideals are out in the open! Everything this man has done in my view is treasonous to the first degree! And if people put there, just using Boeing as an example cannot understand this, then our country is lost.

    I don’t believe that, at least not yet, but I am truly worrying along those lines!

    I personally prefer Mark Levin’s term of statist.

    Definition of STATIST

    : an advocate of statism

    Statism, then;

    Definition of STATISM

    : concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of a highly centralized government often extending to government ownership of industry

    -Doesn’t Obama’s, and the Democrats’, positions and views essentially hand over more power over our lives to a central government?

    -Hasn’t Obama’s plans essentially handed over control of GM to the federal government, including firing it’s CEO?

    Obama is a statist, pure and simple. The only question is whether or not he adheres more to Marx’s, Lenin/Stalin’s/Mao’s/Hitler’s theories on government and economics.

    Liberal1 makes the same mistake that other liberals make. That of equating Nazism to the right, and then, by default, to conservatism.

    Skook,
    “Obama is left with almost nothing to run on as a positive accomplishment, he has the loyalty of his propaganda bureaus of the state directed media and these can be used to attack his opponent . . .”

    Exactly. How can America not feel “had” by its MSM when those who control it, tell lies and promote a private agenda to achieve their own ends, damn the consequences to the broader society. The message to the broad audience is totally manipulated, and twisted – the consequences over the next 5 years will not be pretty.

    . . . . . Obama raises more than $1.2 million in Philadelphia:

    “Comcast’s executive vice president, David L. Cohen, hosted about 120 people in his home for a dinner, each of the attendees giving at least $10,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign. ……. Cohen, a longtime Democratic operative, has successfully sheparded the regulatory review of Comcast’s merger with NBC Universal earlier this year.”

    This is a perfect example of corporate America gone FUBAR.

    Corporate manipulation of truth in the public / political landscape does not portend well. There is an obvious lack of vision, principles and morals in senior circles of some large corporations. The politics a guy like Cohen supports personally, should never infect the corporation he runs. This disease spreads to all his employees, and stifles and stresses those who might disagree with him. They have to hide, to retain their jobs. The Comcast Board of Directors should fire this clown unceremoniously.

    You have to understand, Skookum, that the current crop of Marxists truely believe that the only reason Marxism has never been successful in any nation is simply because the wrong people were in charge of it. Also, you must understand that Obama, who is in full blown campaign mode (as if he ever stopped it) and he must find someone to demonized. The “Bush was evil and ruined our nation” mantra will not work this time since we have had well over two years of Obama and his failed policies so he must find a new boogie man (i.e. Congress) to rail on to convince the uninformed how he is trying soooo very, VERY hard but the evil Congress just won’t give him what he wants and knows is best for our nation.

    When Christine Romer (part of the world’s “smartest people ever” group) released the very report on which Obama pushed the Stimulus Bill and declared it an “emergency” turned out to be wrong. The flow chart showed that without the Stimulus Bill, unemployment would increase to 9% between Quarters 1 and 3 of 2010 to not lower to 8.5% until Q1 of 2011, but with it, unemployment would never go above 8%, reached in Q3 of 2009. It also showed that unemployment would be reduced to 6.9% by the first quarter of 2011, with both scales being reduced to 5% by Q1, 2014. In other words, without the Stimulus the unemployment rate would have reached the same %5% level in Q1 as it would WITHOUT it. So we spent almost a TRILLION dollars to acheive the same goal.

    Stimulus, a major fail, simply provided funds to states to meet their state employee payrolls. It did nothing to spur employment, as is clear. Add to that the BILLIONS given to Brazil to drill there, while Obama does all he can to end oil production in our own nation, making us even more dependent on nations that don’t like us (like Brazil with it’s Marxist president).

    How do you equate corporate jets to scholarships? And how do you convince the people that Timothy Geithner will default on our loans when it is not under the purview of the President OR the Secretary of the Treasury to make that decision when the Constitution clearly outlines that Congress, not the President, pays the bills.

    The problem is that there are too many uninformed citizens, like Liberal1, who simply base their politics and opinions on what their handlers tell them and who I doubt knows the difference between a Marxist and a Nazi.

    James Raider, why do you think Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of GE, is in so tight with Obama? Has Immelt created any jobs in America? Nope, and on his last junket with Obama, he reached another agreement with China to build GE products there. But look at what news channel GE owns.

    Even Hitler understood that control of the press was imperative to maintaining control of the people, a lesson not lost on David Axelrod.

    Although Obama used the term ”jet owners,” his actual plan is to raise taxes on any Americans making more than $200,000 a year.
    The WaPo article that fact-checked Obama’s speech put it this way:

    But the real dollars are in what the president calls “tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires” — eliminating the ability of people making more than $250,000 to itemize their deductions. That proposal would raise $290 billion over 10 years.

    Wait a minute, the president said he would target “millionaires and billionaires” and yet the fine print of his proposal would affect couples making more than $250,000 (and individuals making more than $200,000)? That’s right.

    No wonder his approval rating is at a -18% on Rasmussen.

    Nan, aviation is expensive; especially, jet aviation, the upkeep on a jet is about a million a year. How many people who gross or net a quarter mil a year can afford the million dollar upkeep of a jet. Yet these same “jet owners” are the ones holding out on America. It is a peculiar form of logic.

    @Skookum:

    I hear you.
    We both gross and net well over $250,000 a year but we have only broken a million one time.
    (We had customers of SCE and Vons and Pentel pens and Warner -for VHS boxes- to give hint how long ago that was.)
    We have never even considered a jet or a plane….or even a boat, come to think of it.
    People like us are pretty quiet about our charitable doings, but Ethiopia had a drought and therefore lost a lot of Jews when we were flush and so we were able to assist their adjustment into life in Israel with a fair amount of our profits.
    I always feel that, if we take care of others when we can, when we need taking care of someone will step up.
    Leaving it to the government was never on my short, long or any list.

    JR, my message is often laced with humor the way little old ladies lace their husbands’ meals with arsenic.

    By the time the sarcastic humor elbows the funny bone, the reader is supposed to be mad enough to kick his monitor.

    Like the Marxists of the past, who become statists out of greed and arrogance; and thus they sell any semblance of ideological purity as easily as a pimp selling a woman in a brothel. It’s nothing to them, they are without morals or scruples.

    Such is the extent of Obama and his pimps of industry and journalism. We are nothing more than the neighbors in a neighborhood in decline. We watch in utter despair and hopelessness, while the principles, ethics, and dignity that have been nurtured for decades are destroyed in a relentless procession of greedy ruthless pimps, diseased whores, and degenerate Johns. The homes that we invested our lives into are now under siege to the underworld and its ugliness; of course this all a euphemism, or a nicer way to underscore what is really happening, not to our neighborhood, but to our country.

    Ironic how the speaking abilities of Marco Rubio, a first-generation American, are exemplary to that of a former Senator, also the first child of a foreign national to be born in the U.S. There are no “ah, er, uh” and major pauses, as if to gather one’s thoughts, as there is with the former Senator. Rubio, whose family fled a truely communistic oppresive society, can deliver his words without resorting to the cadence of a tent revival preacher.

    Remarkable, isn’t it, the stark contrast between Marco Rubio and Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Think what kind of orator Rubio would be if he had had the benefit of speech coaches who placed him in front of mirrors to practice giving speeches, as David Axelrod provided for Obama. Yet, we are constantly being told by the paid-for media that Obama is the greatest orator since Douglas.

    JR, like the intellectual midgets of the Middle East who show up to stone a rape victim, the average Liberal needs someone to isolate and to blame, without this target of hatred, their animosities and anger will be without direction. By focusing this Liberal obsession with hatred and blame, Obama has an invisible control over his sub-human intellect types. What seems to be an act of stupidity is actually an effective measure of control over the personalities that can quickly morph into a mob.

  19. I’ve noticed that Obama has created the very situation upon which he depends for his argument about student loans. Prior to his term, student loans were primarily made in the private sector. But now that Obama has taken over that industry, he is indeed correct to note that the only way a student can obtain a loan is through the government.
    So, in essence, Obama has created a problem that didn’t previously exist so he could use it as a cudgel against Republicans in this debt debate.
    Oh, and to hear my own Senator Rubio is to hear a clear contrast to Obama’s petulence. We need an entire Congress full of people with his intellect.

    But, but, but, NanG, you don’t seen to understand. According to the media, George W. Bush’s gaffs were due to his total lack of intellect. Obama’s gaff (which are many, like not being able to give the real age of his own daughters) are excused because it is claimed he is sooooo intelligent that his mouth can’t keep up with his ever moving forward brain.

    You have to give it to the media; there is no excuse they can’t find to excuse Obama for his failures, even his failure to be able to speak without the aid of at least two telepromters. But a funny thing happened on the way to a press conference the other day; I was watching an Obama presser, and he was taking questions from members of the White House press corp (that’s corp, not corpse), and while Obama was answering a question, his answers were scrolling on huge TV screens placed behind and to the side of the press corp, one screen on each side of the room. Every now and then Obama would pause, as if to pre-read what his response to the question would be. Could it be that the smartest POTUS evah! is having someone type his responses so that he really doesn’t have to tax that massive brain and give his own answers? It was a clear shot, at least two minutes long. And as Obama paused, so would the teleprompter, as if to give him time to catch up.
