This cadre of traitors seeks nothing less than to “fundamentally transform” America from a free nation of citizens into a slave nation of serfs. To do this, their every move since the Obama administration took office has been calculated to destroy the middle class backbone of our nation.
A strong, vital middle class is a bulwark for any free nation, and therefore is an obstacle and impediment to the communistic goals of Obama and his gang of governmental thugs.
A good example of this is the ObamaCare debacle. The whole point to this program is to impoverish the middle clases by requiring them to spend onerous amounts of their money buying more expensive health insurance, while simultaneously subsidizing the “Free Stuff Army” half of the country that voted for Obama.
Meanwhile, the calculated effort of the Left is toward the failure of ObamaCare, so that it can be replaced by something even worse—single payer socialized medicine in which the government completely controls health care access for most people and the only folks who can obtain “gold star” private health care are the very rich (i.e., like the “elite” in Washington and their buddies in the news media and Hollywood).

Rewriting History with The Butler… “Progressive liberals can never win in the arena of ideas so they choose to fight in a different battleground, popular culture. Why deal with pesky facts that your ideology has never worked and only led to misery and death for millions of people? To the progressive mind, if you can’t beat your enemy, then change the very fabric of his culture. By doing so, you’ll lose many a battle, but you’ll win the war. This is why progressives have taken over Hollywood and education. Sadly, many people today gain their knowledge through tv, movies, and the internet.

Progressive liberals can never win in the arena of ideas so they choose to fight in a different battleground, popular culture. Why deal with pesky facts that your ideology has never worked and only led to misery and death for millions of people? To the progressive mind, if you can’t beat your enemy, then change the very fabric of his culture. By doing so, you’ll lose many a battle, but you’ll win the war. This is why progressives have taken over Hollywood and education.
Sadly, many people today gain their knowledge through tv, movies, and the internet. True education has been replaced with indoctrination. The result is an ignorant public who then takes as gospel by what they see on the silver screen. Progressives know most people will never crack open a history text or read a biography, but they do know that people will take to heart the lies fed to them in the movies.
This reworking of our American history has been going on for decades. Our Founding Fathers are no longer pure. The American government conspires to kill its own president and to oppress those not in power. Most young people think that they saw the truth when they watched Oliver Stone‘s JFK. You can show them facts and figures showing how the movie was almost pure fantasy, but that makes no impact on their reasoning. Hollywood works overtime (probably with union breaks) to make strong Presidents weak in the eyes of the public and anti-American terrorists are really freedom fighters.
Bankrolling wars is not about the outcome of wars, but generating debt from wars, and that “this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all — whether we be nations or individuals — slaves to debt.” (From “The International”)
Conspiracy pioneer Jim Perloff reviews
a handful of movies that tell the truth
about world power.
by James Perloff
Hollywood is no place to find political truth. Although it has produced–with increasing rarity–some uplifting films, and even anti-Communist ones during the Cold War, movies exposing the Illuminati and how they operate are almost nonexistent.
If you have never seen the blue-state-red-state map broken down to blue-counties and red-counties, you should take a long, hard look at it. It is a striking divide. If you mapped the nation according to gun crimes, gun control, welfare, and approval ratings for same-sex marriage, you’d find that it superimposes nicely on the blue-red breakdown by county. We have a deepening divide between conservative, God-loving, hard-working, gun-toting, sodomy-disapproving country folks, and liberal, Obama-supporting, humanistic, gun-despising, welfare-expanding, sodomy-approving city folks.
The left, who are largely at the helm of the media, Hollywood, partisan political machines, and colleges and universities, have a vision for the nation that takes us to what Karl Marx envisioned – a socialist, Communist utopia, where personal civil rights dissolve into what’s best for the nation, and all is supervised and infractions sanctioned by an all-powerful, loving state. The left have been steering the helm of the culture this direction for decades, but the turns have been slow, lest they awaken the sleeping passengers and provoke revolt. If the left isn’t careful, they may cut too deeply and too quickly, provoking a backlash that may push the nation in a direction they don’t intend for us to go – back to God and righteousness, back to freedom and justice.

America‘s forgotten black cowboys
BBC Magazine ^ | 22nd March 2013 | Sarfraz Manzoor
Posted on Friday, March 22, 2013 8:34:29 AM by the scotsman
‘Quentin Tarantino‘s Oscar-winning Western, Django Unchained, is one of relatively few Hollywood films depicting a black cowboy. In reality there were many, some of whose stories were borrowed for films starring white actors.
In this day and age, “selling war” on the big screen has become a vastly lucrative enterprise, and business is booming.This past week, television broadcasters worldwide have been particularly enthusiastic in celebrating a glorified image of war and violence as promoted by big media and the film industry.
Last Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony generously bestowed its highest accolades on films unsurprisingly produced by the West that effectively and insidiously distort the truth on armed conflict and feed large demographics completely biased and inaccurate views of war theatres around the globe.
What the corporate-funded Hollywood propaganda machine counts on is that not only will the broad viewing public buy into its invented “truths”, but that in doing so the idea of war – in particular the absurd oxymoron of “humanitarian war” – will come to be increasingly accepted by a populace growing more and more numb to the violence being splashed across its screens.

Michelle Obama Goes Into Another Berserker Rage

She allegedly ripped into Barack Obama and shouted; “Stay away from that woman” in reference to this well-known Hollywood star.
It comes as no shock that the National Enquirer would claim that Michelle Obama went into a rage over alleged inappropriate flirtations between Obama and Kerry Washington, of “Dhango Unchained” and the television show “Scandal.”
Gun control advocates, in their infinite wisdom, seem to think they have the definitive answer to this question. The answer is “less than ten.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York is seeking extensive gun control legislation to “tighten the assault weapons ban” and “ban all large-capacity gun clips.” To these ends, he addressed the gun “extremists” by quipping, “It’s simple — no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs ten bullets to kill a deer.”
Obama tries to position himself as the second coming of Lincoln
by Scott Ryan
After witnessing the effrontery of Barack Obama against the states and our constitution, it is apparent this man has come here for the sole purpose of fomenting a civil war. From day one of his campaign he has made efforts to position himself as a pseudo-Lincoln. From his campaign announcement in front of the Illinois state capitol where Lincoln served (with a Lincoln banner behind him), to his announcement of Biden as his running mate (in front of a Lincoln banner), from his quoting of Lincoln (in specious contexts) to his insistence upon swearing in on the same Bible upon which Lincoln was sworn in and even having the exact same MENUE as Lincoln’s inauguration.
The problem is that this man, if anything, is the Anti-Lincoln. Lincoln dogged Senator Douglas all over the state of Illinois, challenging Douglas to debate the KEY ISSUE upon which his REPUBLICAN Party was literally founded. That issue was the central question of whether a human being can rightfully be the PROPERTY of another human being. The central belief to the contrary is rooted in the same moral absolute that our Declaration of Independence invokes, which is that life and our inalienable rights are granted by God and no human tribunal has the right to encroach upon that of another. The same pillar that demanded the abolition of slavery is central to the Republican Party’s platform on abortion. Claiming the authority to abrogate this right for one group of human beings over another is to blasphemously make oneself out to be that one and only God Himself.
The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay… (“In truth, the real LeMay couldn’t have been further from the crazy brute that he’s been made out to be. He was …”)
“…I was surprised to find out that LeMay wasn’t at all the man I thought he was … and I didn’t think he got a fair shake in history.
Here is a man who has been marginalized and even vilified as this mad bomber yearning for a nuclear exchange with the Soviets. Hollywood helped solidify that negative image with Dr. Strangelove ..and he became a favorite target for journalists beginning in the 1960s.
In truth, the real LeMay couldn’t have been further from the crazy brute that he’s been made out to be. He was a sober, strategic realist, who cared deeply for the men who served under him and for the country he defended. LeMay was perhaps the most brilliant military strategist this nation has ever produced – not my words but those of the late Robert S. McNamara.

The Marxist master and his obedient flock whose reelection brought on the post-election blues, love it. It’s just what they want. Now they can ease up on their Saul Alinsky tactics and spend time catching glimpses of themselves as they pass by the mirror, patting themselves on the back and toasting themselves as their lessors grovel before them.
On Wednesday, one week and one day after election, the Obamas and their hangers-on were watching a private screening of the film Abraham Lincoln with Hollywood hedonists Steven Spielberg, Tommy Lee Jones, Daniel Day-Lewis et al.
Thomas Jefferson wrote: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

Last night, I gave in and cried. As the Mom of 3 kids, I feel hopeless. The polls show that Obama is winning, whether we try to deny it or not.
I keep asking myself “Who are these so-called Americans who will re-elect this disaster we’ve had in office for almost 4 years?” I am scared. Scared for the lives my children will have to live, thanks to the resident currently occupying the White House. No, I will never call him my president..in my opinion, you have to EARN that title. And the man who currently occupies the White House is much more concerned about being popular with the “in” crowd..you know, the Hollywood Liberals. Who cares that gas prices have tripled since he took office?
If all human beings should have the right to marry (or simply be with) the one they love, as proponents of same-sex marriage constantly tell us, then why shouldn’t adult, incestuous couples enjoy that same “right”? Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes is the latest to say, “Why not?”, and I for one am not in the least bit surprised.
The Clint Eastwood on gay marriage episode of Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk-show showed “Dirty Harry” again in the “raw.” The actor-director shared his views on same-sex-marriage and his role with the Libertarian Party. In the wake of the RNC, viewers got an even closer glimpse at the Hollywood legend.

further in the upcoming issue of Esquire, saying that despite his 2008 campaign promises, Obama is “doing anything he possibly can to keep power.There’s no way he’s going to give it up.”
At the RNC in August, Eastwood, a five-time Academy Award winner, criticized the president largely about the economy and the estimated 23 million Americans out of work, and also stressed that the American people “own this country,” not the politicians, the “politicians are employees of ours.”
“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”

Obama Raises $15 Mil at Clooney’s, Says Sometimes He Forgets About the Recession

RUSH: Obama is at the Clooney fundraiser last night, where, by the way, the story on that is, the original expectation was ten million. That’s what they were gonna raise. But then, our brave, courageous president went out there and said that he thinks the states ought to determine gay marriage, and that gay people should be able to get married. Lo and behold, the floodgates opened, and an additional five million was raised at the Clooney fundraiser. I’m not believing that either. The whole thing is a crock. They got 15 from the get-go.
ou got Obama in Clooney’s house, the tickets have been sold, but they want us to believe that there’s all this newfound enthusiasm in Hollywood where he was lagging behind a little bit.
There was some distrust, some disappointment, some people simply didn’t have that confidence. But then Obama came out and he said, “I think the states ought to determine whether or not gay people get married.” For some reason that got another five million. While he was there, if this isn’t in every Romney ad from now ’til November, somebody needs to be fired. Obama said, quote,
At 92, a Bandit to Hollywood but a Hero to Soldiers

One of the world’s most prolific bootleggers of Hollywood DVDs loves his morning farina. He has spent eight years churning out hundreds of thousands of copies of “The Hangover,” “Gran Torino” and other first-run movies from his small Long Island apartment to ship overseas.
“Big Hy” — his handle among many loyal customers — would almost certainly be cast as Hollywood Enemy No. 1 but for a few details. He is actually Hyman Strachman, a 92-year-old, 5-foot-5 World War II veteran trying to stay busy after the death of his wife. And he has sent every one of his copied DVDs, almost 4,000 boxes of them to date, free to American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With the United States military presence in those regions dwindling, Big Hy Strachman will live on in many soldiers’ hearts as one of the war’s more shadowy heroes.
“It’s not the right thing to do, but I did it,” Mr. Strachman said, acknowledging that his actions violated copyright law.
“If I were younger,” he added, “maybe I’d be spending time in the hoosegow.”
Capt. Bryan Curran, who recently returned from Afghanistan, estimated that from 2008 to 2010, Mr. Strachman sent more than 2,000 DVDs to his outfits there.
“You’re shocked because your initial image is of some back-alley Eastern European bootlegger — not an old Jewish guy on Long Island,” Captain Curran said. “He would time them with the movie’s release — whenever a new movie was just in theaters, we knew Big Hy would be sending us some. I saw ‘The Transformers’ before it hit the States.”

PHOENIX – Based on interviews WND conducted with insiders in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has decided to expand the scope of his law enforcement investigation into President Obama’s eligibility to include evidence and affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party primary race.
Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano and Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas have given Arpaio’s investigators the names of dozens of Hillary Clinton supporters willing to come forward with evidence and affidavits.
In this audio clip from Red, Right and Blue Radio, Hollywood Producer Bettina Sofia Viviano tells us that Bill Clinton told her directly that Barack Obama is not eligible to be President of the United States. This is just more confirmation of what we have know for months. Obama is an illegal president.

It sounds like the bizzare script of a Hollywood B-movie. In a parallel universe the Nazis have won the war, Adolf Hitler moves to LA where he mingles with the stars of the silver screen while running his evil empire from a luxurious ranch deep in the LA hills.
But during the 1930s, American sympathisers were so confident this exact scenario was actually going happen they spent millions building a deluxe compound ready for their fuhrer’s imminent arrival.
Equipped with a diesel power plant, 375,000 gallon concrete water tank , giant meat locker, 22 bedrooms and even a bomb shelter, the heavily guarded estate was home to a community of Hollywood fascists who hoped to ride out the war there.
In a 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace several years ago, black actor Morgan Freeman displayed unusual wisdom for Hollywood when he said that the way to end racism in America is to “stop talking about it.”
But instead of ushering in a post-racial era as many hoped, Obama’s presidency has ramped up racial tensions and driven his black Hollywood supporters to talk about racism more than ever before –among them, sadly, Morgan Freeman.
Obama’s administration has been anything but post-racial. From Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to prosecute Black Panther thugs, to Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s charge that Tea Partiers are the new KKK, to the President’s own insult of the police officers who properly arrested his academic buddy Henry Louis Gates, Jr., it’s been payback time for those blacks who wear their racialism on their sleeve and yet hypocritically dismiss their critics as racist.
Including some blacks in Hollywood. Even the once-wise actor Freeman ignored his own earlier advice and claimed recently that the Tea Party is “a racist thing” representing “the weak, dark underside of America”:
…..How quickly we seem to forget when in 2008 an obscure Senator from Illinois whose record of accomplishments would fit on the back of a postage stamp, thrilled the willing with only a big toothy smile and a slogan about ‘change.’
It took an Internet-wide outcry from millions of voters to prompt Rep. Lamar Smith, author of the Stop Online Piracy Act, to postpone a vote on the controversial Hollywood-backed bill.Now Smith, a conservative Texas Republican, is being targeted a second time: for championing legislation that would require Internet service providers to keep track of their customers, in case police want to review those logs in the future.
His bill is called H.R. 1981.The latest campaign is designed to build on last month’s remarkable protests, which included Wikipedia going dark for a day and Google and Amazon.com posting anti-SOPA warnings on their home pages. Irate voters overwhelmed the U.S. Senate’s Web site and, importantly, demonstrated to politicians that Internet users could be a potent political force.“This is yet another government assault on the Internet and its users,” said Demand Progress Executive Director David Segal.
“We taught Congress a lesson last month: we need to do to H.R. 1981 what we did to SOPA, and make it clear to Lamar Smith and the rest of Congress that they can’t run roughshod over Internet freedom.”
Judicial Watch filed a freedom of information request for documents pertaining to the possible leak of the information relating to the killing of Osama bin Laden to a Hollywood producer in August 2011. The administration has yet to cough up the information, so Judicial Watch is suing them.The DOD admitted receiving the FOIA request on August 22, 2011, but advised Judicial Watch that “at this time, we are unable to make a release determination on your request within twenty 20 working days” of August 9, which would have been by September 6, 2011.

Congress is supposed to represent the interests of everyone. But what happens when powerful special interests contribute heavily to lawmakers’ election campaigns? Last week Americans on the political right and left lined up to oppose SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and its Senate counterpart PIPA, the Protect IP Act. Internet giants like Google, Wikipedia, Mozilla and Tumblr went black for 24 hours last Wednesday, declaring it
