“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully,” the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” “The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” These are the friends that Obama says he “chose carefully.”Â
Somehow, at the same time, he’s planning a “civilian national security force” that is as powerful and well-funded as the US military:Â Obama outlines plan for national service. Will it be his own private Gestapo? Will Obama elevate the thugs from the Nation of Islam to a hit squad against dissenters?/ed

OBAMA’S ATTRACTION TO MARXISM
Finally, someone ELSE is talking about his first book.
Now … first of all. You need to understand that what I’ll be talking about in this segment is totally and completely off limits. You’re going to read some notes about Barack Obama’s past statements and associations .. negative statements and negative associations. You will not read about these associations in the mainstream media. That would be because the mainstream media â€“ and by that I mean the Beltway and New York City media â€“ are totally and completely dedication to the election of Barack Obama as our next president. For the reporters and editors that comprise what used to be our most trusted source for news all pretentions of objectivity have been out the window. The new standards for reporting a news story are who, what, when, where, how and will it hurt Barack Obama. If the story can hurt Obama, and if it can be quietly killed, so it shall be.
Question for you, dear listener. If someone could come up with something that John McCain wrote a book or an article about 20 years ago in which he detailed his attraction to members of the Ku Klux Klan during his college years? Do you think for a minute that this would not be at the top of the front page of every newspaper in the country? Not to mention leading every television newscast.
But what if we have a candidate writing about his attraction to Marxism during his college years? News? Well, if that person is going to be on the presidential ballot on election day, you would think it would be news. Well .. that person IS on the ballot on election day, and it is most certainly NOT news.
Now I’ve been telling you this for months. But who am I? Just a radio talk show host without a television show. But I read Barack Obama’s “Dreams From my Father” several months ago … and there they were; Barack’s expressions of affection for his Marxist and socialist friends and mentor of his college days and before.
Finally, it’s becoming news. Well .. news to some outlets like the one liberals just love to hate, Fox News. Here’s your link to a story appearing yesterday on FoxNews.com. The title isÂ “Obama Affinity to Marxists Dates Back to College Days.”
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully,” the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” “The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” These are the friends that Obama says he “chose carefully.” That’s carefully?
Obama’s interest in leftist politics continued after he transferred to Columbia University in New York. He lived on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, venturing to the East Village for what he called “the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union.”
“At the entrance to the auditorium, two women, one black, one Asian, were selling Marxist literature.”
“Sometimes attended” socialist conferences? Oh… and by the way, they were selling Marxist stuff at the entrance. Oh, and another thing, one of my mentors, Frank Marshall Davis, was a Communist. But hey … I’m clean.
Question to Obama, if you were so careful with your friends in college, why wouldn’t you continue to use the same level of judgment when choosing your friends to help you get elected … i.e. Bill Ayers? Hey, maybe you chose him, and Jeremiah Write just as carefully, right?
I didn’t think so.Â MSNBC published an “analysis” of the campaign by Howard Fineman. It is clear that Fineman, like the rest of his mainstream media cohorts, is in the tank for Barack Obama. And he is just doing his job to make sure that he gets elected next week. So here is Fineman’s advice to Barack Obama supporters: Stop predicting that the Democrats will sweep into the White House and Congress come January with a mandate to expand Big Government … you are going to scare away swing voters. And even if Obama wins, these swing voters are going to be skeptical of Obama which will underscore his ability to rule as a “uniter”!
So what Fineman is basically advocating is that Barack Obama needs to lie to the voters about the true nature of his socialist policies. Obama needs to tell voters that “he doesn’t like government for its own sake, but for the sake of individuals and families. He has to keep explaining that he wants to put money in a hundred million pockets and purses (even those of the top 5 percent or so whom he’d have pay more in taxes) so that all of us, even the rich, can benefit from a thriving economy. He has to make sure that he isn’t advocating government-run â€” in contrast to government-aided â€” health care … he also needs to reassure voters that he will not necessarily march in lockstep with resurgent Democrats who will want to launch a top-to-bottom New New Deal and reverse the Reagan Revolution 28 years after it took place.”
Are you listening to this, folks? Tell me how a man who is proposing $800 billion in new spending is someone who doesn’t like government for its own sake. Tell me how he is going to put hundreds of millions of dollars into the pockets of people who don’t even pay taxes. I’ll tell you how, by taxing the achievers, by taxing the small businesses who create most of the jobs in this country … tell me how our economy is going to thrive if Barack Obama uses your tax dollars to give hand outs to people who do not pay taxes. How is our economy going to thrive if the government gives to those who are not the achievers. Let me know how many times you have gone to a poor person asking for a job. And will someone please tell me what the benefits would be of a “government-aided” healthcare system? Where has that worked?
This MSNBC article gets even worse, folks. The new line that is emerging is that Barack Obama’s beliefs in wealth redistribution aren’t all that bad â€“ because the government already redistributes wealth. Are you really buying this? Here’s an example from this article by Howard Fineman: “We know that we need government. In one way or another, almost every American politician is or was a ‘redistributionist.’ We do it all the time. Redistributing is a good bit of what government in fact does, for better or worse. Every time we monkey with the tax code or federal spending we are ‘redistributing’ benefits â€”whether it is to welfare recipients or to the top bracket, or to one region or industry versus another.”
Since when did your wealth become a “benefit” for the government to redistribute? I believe that wealth is something that you earn. A “benefit”, to the best of my knowledge, implies an act of kindness or something that promotes well-being. My wealth does not belong to the government, therefore it is not the government’s job to take it in order to be kind or promote well-being.
Something else has surfaced from Obama’s past. In 1996, Obama apparently spoke at a meeting for the Chicago chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.Â Here’s a recap of what Obama had to say at the meeting:
Barack Obama observed that Martin Luther King’s March on Washington in the 1960s wasn’t simply about civil rights but demanded jobs as well. Now the issue is again coming to the front, but he wished the issue was on the Democratic agenda not just on [Pat] Buchanan’s.
One of the themes that has emerged in Barack Obama’s campaign is “what does it take to create productive communities”, not just consumptive communities. It is an issue that joins some of the best instincts of the conservatives with the better instincts of the left. He felt the state government has three constructive roles to play.
The first is “human capital development”. By this he meant public education, welfare reform, and a “workforce preparation strategy”. Public education requires equality in funding. It’s not that money is the only solution to public education’s problems but it’s a start toward a solution. The current proposals for welfare reform are intended to eliminate welfare but it’s also true that the status quo is not tenable. A true welfare system would provide for medical care, child care and job training. While Barack Obama did not use this term, it sounded very much like the “social wage” approach used by many social democratic labor parties. By “workforce preparation strategy”, Barack Obama simply meant a coordinated, purposeful program of job training instead of the ad hoc, fragmented approach used by the State of Illinois today.
The state government can also play a role in redistribution, the allocation of wages and jobs. As Barack Obama noted, when someone gets paid $10 million to eliminate 4,000 jobs, the voters in his district know this is an issue of power not economics. The government can use as tools labor law reform, public works and contracts.
What is it going to take folks? Don’t you see what we have here? This man is a dedicated leftist who is really really fond of basic Marxist ideas, including redistribution of wealth! He has no appreciation for free enterprise. Everything to him is about government. Only government can provide. Only government can determine who has what. Only government can solve problems. How in the hell can the people of a (supposedly) free nation take this man and elevate him to the position of president?
Our Republic is threatened by this man and his ideas. Time to mature and think about what you’re going to do next week.
Joe the Plumber is learning the hard way that his 15-minutes of fame may be over. In the last presidential debate, all the media could talk about was Joe the Plumber. Now with the election less than a week away, Ted Stevens has been indicted, the stock market is a rollercoaster … Joe the Plumber missed his chance to really make a case for McCain. Do you remember the last major media reporting on Joe the Plumber? They reported three things: he isn’t a licensed plumber, he owes taxes, and he still hadn’t decided who he was going to vote for. That was a big ego blow to the McCain campaign. Their “it” guy wouldn’t come out and endorse him.
WellÂ Joe Wurzelbacher finally came out and said he is voting for McCainÂ because he believes Obama would turn this country into a socialist nation. Another interesting point, Joe also agreed that “a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel.” Why aren’t more voters â€“ not just Jewish voters â€“ upset about Obama’s policies on Israel and Iran? It’s because they are too wrapped up in Obama idol worship to think about the true consequences of their vote.
Time to crank up the government computers and feed the media more dirt on Good Ole’ Joe.
