Marxism Lives

If old Karl Marx, the embittered inventor of communism, could return from the grave, he would no doubt be surprised to find that most of the 10 planks of his Communist Manifesto, issued in 1848 in collaboration with Frederick Engels, have been happily adopted or are at least supported by Americans.

Let’s look at the 10 planks:

1. “Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.” Well, we’re working on this one. The federal government owns huge amounts of land and is acquiring more. Private property rights are being eroded deliberately in the name of protecting the environment.

2. “A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.” Need I say more? Before Ronald Reagan’s tax law changes we had exactly that and many Americans support the idea of taxing the rich more than the less-rich.

3. “Abolition of all rights of inheritance.” We haven’t gone all the way on that one, but heavy estate taxes are a step in that direction. Estate taxes are purely punitive because they are taxes levied on assets on which multiple taxes have already been paid many times.

4. “Confiscation of the property of emigrants and rebels.” Well, our forefathers confiscated the property of those who supported the British during the Revolution, and, under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and other civil statutes, property is being confiscated right and left in the name of the war on drugs.

5. “Centralization of credit in the hands of the state . . . .” Pretty much done. See the Federal Reserve Act.

Fourth Fleet Steams South

Return of the Gunboat


Mexico City.

The resurrection and imminent dispatch of the United States Fourth Fleet to patrol the coasts of Latin America invokes the bad old days of Monroe Doctrine impositions and gunboat diplomacy for many citizens of those southern latitudes.

This April, the U.S. Navy announced the reactivation of the fleet that historically operated in the south Atlantic during World War II, dueling with Nazi U-boats.  Activating the Fourth Fleet “demonstrates U.S. commitment to our global partners,” Admiral Gary Roughead explained, adding a threatening fillip: “The Fourth Fleet will send a strong signal to all Navies operating in the region.”

Relax, Comrade Chertoff. The Case for Hanging Errant Public Officials is the title of a book by James Farrell who also wrote, The Judas Syndrome. The Case for Hanging Errant Public Officials was published in 1988, decades before a Nazi law called the ‘The Patriot Act’ was rammed down our throats. Today, only rich kids of famous people are allowed to exercise their First Amendment rights; see Indict Michael Reagan, Applaud Senator Karen Johnson. This talk radio gas bag got away with soliciting murder over the public airwaves because his father was Ronald Reagan. He was given a pass under “political hyperbole.” Yours truly would already be in jail.

The Man Between War and Peace

David Petraeus has been nominated to be the new chief of U.S. Central Command. Meet “Fox” Fallon, the freethinking commander he will replace, who (officially, anyway) resigned last month — hours after sounding off in our pages.

David Petraeus has been nominated to be the new chief of U.S. Central Command. Meet “Fox” Fallon, the freethinking commander he will replace, who (officially, anyway) resigned last month — hours after sounding off in our pages.


If, in the dying light of the Bush administration, we go to war with Iran, it’ll all come down to one man. If we do not go to war with Iran, it’ll come down to the same man. He is that rarest of creatures in the Bush universe: the good cop on Iran, and a man of strategic brilliance. His name is William Fallon, although all of his friends call him “Fox,” which was his fighter-pilot call sign decades ago. Forty years into a military career that has seen this admiral rule over America’s two most important combatant commands, Pacific Command and now United States Central Command, it’s impossible to make this guy — as he likes to say — “nervous in the service.” Past American governments have used saber rattling as a useful tactic to get some bad actor on the world stage to fall in line. This government hasn’t mastered that kind of subtlety. When Dick Cheney has rattled his saber, it has generally meant that he intends to use it. And in spite of recent war spasms aimed at Iran from this sclerotic administration, Fallon is in no hurry to pick up any campaign medals for Iran. And therein lies the rub for the hard-liners led by Cheney. Army General David Petraeus, commanding America’s forces in Iraq, may say, “You cannot win in Iraq solely in Iraq,” but Fox Fallon is Petraeus’s boss, and he is the commander of United States Central Command, and Fallon doesn’t extend Petraeus’s logic to mean war against Iran.

A crumbling economy heading for massive inflation, political unrest, police state measures, etc. It’s only a matter of time before that tyranny becomes full blown.

It was Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Russian writer, who made the “gulag archipelago” part of our language. He won the Nobel Prize for the book of that name, lived here in exile and was mentioned in the media almost every day—until he made the fateful speech at Harvard, one of many universities founded to spread word of Jesus Christ.

On June 8th, 1978, Solzhenitsyn told a Harvard audience that “convergence” of the Soviet and American systems was doomed. “Convergence” has of course been one of the main purposes of the conspiracy for world government since the beginning. While he spoke, it was well under way.

A Weak and Dependent People
by Jacob G. Hornberger

With its coming bailout of homeowners and mortgage lenders, the federal government refortifies its role as daddy for the American people and the people’s role as child-adults who are dependent on their daddy to take care of them.

The bailout, while strengthening the federal government, makes the American people weaker than ever. A people who look to the government for their sustenance and to protect them from their own mistakes and from the adverse vicissitudes of life will inevitably be a weak people.

What’s happened to the American spirit of independence, self-reliance and individual achievement? Well, for one thing, you have Marxists like Bill Clinton make this shameful statement, April 19, 1994: “When we got organized as a country, we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, however there’s a lot of irresponsibility today in this country and so a lot of people say there’s too much personal freedom……..

How Good Was the Good War?

Thomas E. Woods Jr.

Patrick J. Buchanan deserves respect for blasting open an important historical question that the gatekeepers of allowable opinion probably assumed they had welded shut. According to the official version of American history, we are supposed to draw from World War II only a series of neat lessons about “appeasement” and our government’s unquenchable thirst for justice. Innocently wondering if there might have been some alternative to 50 million deaths and the most terrible war in history is enough to make you an object of suspicion—what are you, some kind of extremist?

Even from parts of the Right, the subject of World War II elicits the shrill denunciations, the smears, and the unchallengeable orthodoxies for which conservatives have traditionally condemned the politically correct Left. Buchanan may be wrong (though I do not think he is), but there is nothing wicked or perverse about considering contrary-to-fact scenarios in light of historical evidence. His prose is measured and non-polemical, and his judgments, which are shared by a great many historians and other figures of distinction, deserve to be considered on their merits. Claims that Buchanan’s version of history is politically motivated can hardly be taken seriously, especially coming from people who have made comfortable livings out of distorting the historical record on behalf of their own foreign-policy ambitions.

The Republican Party:
There are NO conservative roots there.

by Al Benson, Jr.

Awhile back I received an email from a conservative activist who was urging people to try to get the Republican Party “back to its conservative roots.” My first thought was  “what conservative roots?” Anyone who has done any real homework as to the origins of the Republican Party and is not wearing blinders has got to realise that the Republican Party in this country had radical, leftist beginnings, hardly to be considered conservative by any stretch of the imagination.

I have, for the past 35 years, expressed my grave concern for the future of America. The course we have taken over the past century has threatened our liberties, security and prosperity. In spite of these long-held concerns, I have days – growing more frequent all the time – when I’m convinced the time is now upon us that some Big Events are about to occur. These fast-approaching events will not go unnoticed. They will affect all of us. They will not be limited to just some areas of our country. The world economy and political system will share in the chaos about to be unleashed. Read more…

Homeland security training firm eyes Venus

Kevin J. Shutt
Staff writer

Sunday, June 22, 2008

VENUS – A few retired generals are thinking about establishing a national training center for homeland security in southern Highlands County.

The Grigsby family, owners of Southern Farms in Venus, has approached county planning staff to initiate proceedings.

“This project is in its very early stages,” said Bert Harris III, attorney for the Grigsby family.

County staff confirmed Friday that the Planning and Zoning Board is expecting to receive a presentation in August, when Southern Farms seeks a comprehensive plan text amendment.

The amendment, if approved, would allow such a facility on agriculture-zoned land, and is considered a first step.

Tentatively dubbed Heartland National Security Training Center, the facility would be located on 7,700 acres.

This is an amazing presentation of what is really going on in the world and who is actually “deliberately” orchestrating all of it, and of course lying about what they are actually doing.   To most ordinary folks, it’s impossible to understand the course of events simply because it takes an enormous amount of study in order to be able to connect all the dots.  Most people are simply too involved in just squeezing out a living and paying their bills.

A software update for the Windows operating system has left hundreds and thousands of computer users unable to access the internet.The update, known as a “patch”, conflicts with another piece of software, the Zone Alarms firewall, that many people use to protect their computers from hackers and viruses.

The patch, codenamed MS08-037, was designed to fix a security loophole in the way Windows handles website addresses. It was discovered that there was a weakness with the operating system that could allow hackers to re-route legitimate web pages to malicious websites instead, and leave internet users open to fraud and viruses.

The ‘Higher Powers': Martial Law vs. Christian Responsibility

It is one thing to know something intellectually, and quite another to see it suddenly happen before your eyes. I experienced such a moment in 2005, during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when I watched (via the Internet) as police officers went door-to-door in New Orleans neighborhoods, forced law-abiding citizens into the streets, cuffed them, and then searched their homes for firearms before leaving them bewildered and helpless. There were no warrants involved. No probable cause was mentioned. No charges of wrong-doing were filed. Intimidation and brute force were the order of the day. And as much as I wish I could believe otherwise, I’m afraid that what we saw in New Orleans is merely a preview of coming attractions.

Since September 11, 2001, the federal government has been busily advancing preparations for the day when it might impose martial law throughout the United States, thus presenting us with the specter of the sort of thuggery we witnessed in New Orleans being carried out all across this “land of the free.” A quasi-legal apparatus has already been put into place for this, via such legislation as the PATRIOT Act, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, the Military Commissions Act, and theNational Security and Homeland Security Directive. But legislation, although important in creating the illusion of legitimacy, is only one of the two boots with which the authoritarian state tramples freedom; the other is propaganda, and it is even more essential than force because it allows the state to conquer by stealth, and thus with a minimum of effort.

The Necessary War

by William S. Lind


<p _implied_=”true”><a href=”; target=”_blank”></a></p>

Pat Buchanan’s new book, Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World, is causing a stir, which is a good thing. Buchanan argues that both World War I and World War II were unnecessary wars; that Britain bears at least as much responsibility for both as Germany; that Winston Churchill was “the indispensable man” in reducing Britain from a world-encircling empire to “a cottage by the sea – to live out her declining years;” and that the consequence of the Western civil war that encompassed both World Wars (I would add the Cold War as well) has been the fall of the West.

Buchanan is correct on all counts. His book represents a counterattack in the necessary war, the war to introduce Americans to genuine history. At present, most Americans know only a comic-book version of history, one in which Germany deliberately started both World Wars as part of a drive to conquer the world, a drive stopped when valiant American armies defeated the German army. And, oh yes, some Brit named Churchill beat the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain. Thanks to the victories of the freedom-loving allies, we now live in the best of all possible worlds, where everyone can be a “democracy.”

Self-Described CIA ‘Manchurian Candidates’ Gather to Share Fractured
By Jeff Stein, CQ National Security Editor

A few years ago, I was talking with a Washington psychiatrist, a Harvard
Medical School graduate whom I’ve known and respected for more than 20
years. When, for some reason, our past military service came up, I
remembered he’d been in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, but couldn’t
recall where he’d been stationed.

“At Andrews,” he said, meaning the air base just outside Washington.
“Treating PTSD,” he added – post-traumatic stress disorder.

Vietnam combat veterans, I assumed.

“No,” he said. “Russia.”

No way.

But in the late 1960s, my friend insisted, he’d treated men who said they
had been dispatched to Siberia on clandestine reconnaissance operations.

Gunny G: Let’s be damn sure that no man’s ghost will ever say “If your training program had only done its job.”

July 12, 2008 5 comments

Let’s be damn sure that no man’s ghost will ever say “If your training program had only done its job.”




I have been advised by an e-mail correspondent (namely, Dr. R. E. Sullivan, PhD and Col USMC (Ret.) who is a historian and many other things) that the above well-known inscription is no longer seen on the masthead of The Parris Island Boot (base newspaper), and has been replaced by We Make Marines.





“Sully” states that:




“Also, digging through some of my older (what I laughingly call) Archives I resurrected a copy of the Parris Island Boot from late 1944.  The masthead proclaims:  “Let’s Be Damned Sure That No Boy’s Ghost Will Ever Say, ‘If Your Training Program Had Only Done Its Job….'”




Just for the heck of it I looked up the present masthead on the Parris Island Boot which is:  “We Make Marines.”







No more mention of “Boy’s and Ghosts.”  Probably would not go over too well with the Recruiters in this day and age, to say nothing at all about the parents of would be warriors.  When in 1944 we were all assured that we’d be dead within six months of leaving P. I. at least some of us breathed a sigh of relief.  The thought of returning to any kind of school was much more fearsome to those of us who were not academically gifted than dying a hero’s death on an enemy shore.  Ah, the romance of it all!







Oh, well.  Different times, and different strokes for different folks.  On the other hand, thinking back to my days as Piedpiper 6 in ’65/’66 during the SEA War Games, if we couldn’t show ten enemy bodies for every Marine we lost (i.e. “became a ghost), it was considered prima facie evidence of our incompetence to command.  And not infrequently old Lew Walt would descend from his Deus ex Machina to place his right foot on the chest of a deceased enemy, and smile as he said “One.”   At the same time he gazed down the aligned corpses that were presented for his inspection.  My guess is, from reading between the lines of current goings-on, that commanders must fight a bloodless war, at least on our side of the ledger.  Must assume that those who insist on such fanciful outcomes never cringed under direct fire or  ranging mortar rounds trying to land in our back pockets as did lesser mortals such as I.”




It seems to me that I have seen that inscription on a sign (in Marine Corps colors, of course) many times online, I suppose the sign itself somewhere aboard MCRD, Parris Island, South Carolina, and it may have also been at the Drill Instructor School at PI.




A long Google search online has been unsuccessful in finding an image of that sign that I have seen many times online, though the words themselves abound on the Internet.




Questions arise in my mind-housing-group regarding this:
Is the sign still alive and well aboard PISC?
Or maybe the DI School, PISC?
Was it passed over for the possibly more PC We Make Marines?




Lest ye think maybe all this is my own personal pipedream, here is just one reference fyi.

I have been writing about vote fraud since 1993 when I ran for Congress the first time. You see, I had read a book titled, Vote Scam: The Stealing of America, and the light bulb went on about incumbents getting “reelected” for decades – incumbents the voters wanted gone. How could these buzzards continue to “win” elections when the electorate didn’t want them? Vote Scam pinned it down for me. I realized our elections had been stolen from the late 1960s.

Thanks to Matt Drudge, Jesse Jackson’s disparaging comments about Barack Obama have become national news. Who benefits? Obama. It makes Obama look like a moderate, compared to the disgraced, discredited and venomous Jackson. But this doesn’t mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that Jackson, a failed black presidential candidate, will cease to be a national black “leader” and spokesman. Remember this is a “Reverend” who has survived the embarrassment of fathering a child out of wedlock.

Now why would Fox News, which recorded and provided Jackson’s private comments, want to make Jackson look bad and Obama look good? Why did it take several days before the comments were aired by Bill O’Reilly of Fox News? And who outside of the news organization was made aware of the controversial remarks before they were put on the air? Was the Obama campaign notified in advance and consulted about what to do?

How did we get where we are? As I write, it looks as if our next President could be a mulatto named Hussein, raised as a Muslim, most of whose family is Muslim – who says in one of his books that when the feces hit the fan he will side with Islam – a man who may not even be a natural born American, a man who may be bi-sexual, a man who could be a member of the Communist Party. That all this could happen so soon after Nine Eleven is stark proof that we are in the midst of a revolution that has driven us insane.

It was interesting, but not surprising, that the old-guard Republicans (Bush, Burns, Rehberg) stooped to all the underhanded, dirty tricks they could get away with at their state convention June 20 to make sure the Ron Paul delegates were eliminated from the national convention.

The utter hypocrisy of it all reveals to me just how truly hypocritical and disgraceful the leadership of the Republican Party has become, especially Eric Iverson and Rick Hill. I was there as a Carbon County delegate and witnessed all this.

“US Democrat-controlled Congress intends to destroy the Republican middle class with $11 per gallon gasoline”

Oil at $300

Posted 07/04/2008 ET
You would think that this story is right out of science fiction.  But the facts appear to be that the US Democrat-controlled Congress intends to destroy the Republican middle class with $11 per gallon gasoline.

The Democrats’ base — wealthy white “limousine liberals”, and very poor people — won’t be harmed, but the families who live in suburbia will be devastated.

The multi-millionaires like billionaire Senators John Kerry & Jay Rockefeller, financial speculator George Soros, filmmaker Michael Moore, and actors George Clooney & Meg Ryan can easily pay for their auto and private jet fuel.  Poor people are forced to take public transit.

Here’s the reasoning behind the move.

The so-called “Global Oil Crisis” is an invention of the US liberal ruling class, which has successfully managed to export their disastrous ideas worldwide.  Oil supply and demand has been on knife-edge balance for years.  With the growth of the newly well off Chinese and Indian car-consuming populations, oil consumption has been rapidly increasing in the developing world even as it has been dropping in the US.  No wonder India and China, with nearly half the world’s population, refused to sign on to the Kyoto “global warming” treaty.
