The Democrats are trying the Weimar Republic approach of the 1930s to solve their destruction of the US economy. The Federal Reserve announced plans to buy $600 billion in United States treasuries this week. This strategy, under the current buzzwords of quantitative easing, is risky:
…. starting in 2009, the Fed embarked on what it called quantitative easing — a fancy term for creating money out of thin air. Over a little more than a year, it bought more than $1.7 trillion in assets, mainly U.S. Treasury and agency debt.
Today, U.S. bank reserves are close to $1 trillion — an enormous amount compared with the normal $4 billion to $8 billion.
On Tuesday, with the economy struggling and many Fed officials still worried about the specter of deflation, the Fed embarked on a second round of quantitative easing, dubbed QE2. The plan is to spend $600 billion to buy even more government debt….
Another term for the shell game that the Fed is playing with our collective worth is monetizing the debt:
The shell game that the Fed is currently playing does not change the basic equation: Money is being printed out of thin air so that it can be used to buy US government debt.
The idiocy of what the Federal Reserve is doing isn’t receiving enough media coverage. Germans are qualifed better than anyone else to comment because they made this mistake during the Weimar Republic & suffered horribly for it.
Finance Minister Schaeuble sharply criticizes US Federal Reserve move
….The US plan, called quantitative easing, aims to put more money into the pockets of companies, consumers and homeowners but some financial analysts have expressed fears that it could lead to excessive inflation and an intensification of currency imbalances.
Schaeuble said he would not let Germany’s opposition to the Fed’s action get pushed to the back burner and that the issue would be addressed during the G20 summit in South Korea next week.
“I wish the Americans every success in dealing with their big problems effectively and swiftly,” he said. “But if they look at the successes that Germany has had they will see that more and more deficits is not the way to do it.”
Europe’s largest economy, Germany is enjoying a strong recovery from the global economic crisis and has resisted calls for scaling back its austerity measures and lowering taxes….

Reuters — U.S. dollar printing is huge risk:
Unbridled printing of dollars is the biggest risk to the global economy, an adviser to the Chinese central bank said in comments published on Thursday, a day after the Federal Reserve unveiled a new round of monetary easing.
China must set up a firewall via currency policy and capital controls to cushion itself from external shocks, Xia Bin said in a commentary piece in the Financial News, a Chinese-language newspaper managed by the central bank.
“As long as the world exercises no restraint in issuing global currencies such as the dollar — and this is not easy — then the occurrence of another crisis is inevitable, as quite a few wise Westerners lament,” he said….
The Federal Reserve launched a fresh effort on Wednesday to support the struggling U.S. economy, committing to buy $600 billion in government bonds despite concerns the programme could do more harm than good….

The US economy has been devastated by misguided federal policy, while Germany’s industrial power has grown. Germans have not forgotten how “Made in Germany” has been a constant path to wealth for their economy & have reisted the Marxist destroyers who want the successful to support the world’s 3rd world FAILURES. Americans are seeing their country’s economy pillaged to give industry to Red China, chaotic Mexico & the 3rd World in general. You can’t employ a huge population without substantial manufacturing.
The cruel resulting impact on our unemployed citizens who want to work is one negative result, but the impact on national security is also critical. You can’t maintain an effective defense force if you can’t manufacture your own weapons. Think about WW II where 1 German Tiger tank had to face 20 US Shermans because of America’s industrial might. Today, a replay would have as many Tigers as Shermans which would mean a huge number of dead Americans.
The Malaysian business journal MYsinchew reports:
As German beast awakens, so will the grumbling
Germany’s economy is fast returning to health, but thanks mainly to exports, leaving Chancellor Angela Merkel open to a fresh barrage of criticism from other countries, economists say.
On Friday the closely watched Ifo survey of around 2,500 companies showed sentiment in Europe’s biggest economy surging at its strongest rate since the reunification of East and West Germany in 1990….
But the surprisingly robust rebound is thanks in large part to Germany’s export prowess, something that has been a bone of contention between Berlin and its international partners, not least the United States and neighbour France….
German Chancellor Angela Merckel strengthened their economy with 80 billion euros (103 billion dollars) in government spending cuts. Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to spend as if money grew on trees, a sure path to driving investment capital from our shores and increasing unemployment.

How is this possible? White Racists & Black Racists are all part of the “party of civil rights!” Remember a few weeks ago how the Democrats celebrated Senator KKK Byrd? Byrd wasn’t just a casual member of the KKK. Byrd was actually a leader. Of course, that model of principles & convicted perjurer, Democrat President Bill Clinton, pointed out that KKK Byrd was just trying to get elected. Gee, wasn’t that what Hitler was doing in 1933?
Democrat turned Republican Senator Strom Thurmond hadn’t been even a member of the KKK. Thurmond, when a Democrat Governor of South Carolina, had actually tried to stop the lynching of Blacks by the KKK. What did KKK Byrd do? He was a loyal Democrat who voted against ALL Republicans, Black & White. KKK Byrd constantly looted the US Treasury to build monuments to himself in West Virginia that fooled voters into reelecting him even though his actual benefit for the majority of West Virginia residents was MINIMAL. KKK Byrd claimed to be a lover of the Constitution which doesn’t really match either his KKK roots or his VOTING RECORD. So, why was Byrd honored at his death & Thurmond shunned? Rhetorical question with an easy answer that open-eyed Republicans know & that’s the DEMOCRAT MEDIA.
My article isn’t about MEDIA bias which is clearly illustrated by its title & the FACTS that I’ve related. Rather, it is about the horrible danger to America of having a MEDIA that is part of one political party since that very situation “violates” the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution with its prohibition against “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” This amendment has been long recognized as being essential to an educated electorate.
Today, this Amendment is a JOKE. In fact, a recent piece from Tucker Carlson’s DailyCaller identified Democrat Media types as part of the “Journolisters” cabal who communicated about lying about Obama’s record & silencing FOX News. When I was a kid in the 1950s, I read about the state controlled news in the Soviet Union & heard about the same thing in Hitler’s Germany from my German relatives. What’s the difference with today’s America & the Democrat MEDIA!?
The Democrat MEDIA is in the process of turning the “Sherrod firing” into an example of conservative media racism instead of its reality as an example of Democrat Party RACISM. The Democrat MEDIA has chosen to ignore the Obama Administration’s obvious Racism in ignoring the criminality of the NEW Black Panthers. This action by “inaction” again restates the horrific danger of having the Democrat Party run most of the MEDIA. The 1st Amendment is about Americans receiving “Facts” from a “Free Press,” not propaganda from political publications.
No clearer example of the long standing nature of this problem comes from the reporting of the “Tet offensive” during the Vietnam War. When Media Democrat Walter Cronkite died, Democrat MEDIA celebrated him as America’s voice of truth, naturally ignoring his part in lying about the Tet offensive. The best “truth” on the Tet offensive is contained in the writings of brilliant Vietnamese General Giap who launched the offensive & suffered the worst defeat of his brilliant military career in it. Cronkite as a member of the Democrat media LIED then as they lied before & continue to lie.
…during the Vietnam War, General Giap relied on the American peace movement to weaken American resolve. That had the effect of turning an American military victory into a political defeat….
….From a military perspective, it is important to note that the Tet Offensive was a singularly unmitigated disaster both for Hanoi and for its Viet Cong troops in South Vietnam. Not one of the objectives of the Viet Cong in that Offensive was achieved. Yet, it proved to be a major turning point in the war.
Being the first major “television war,” Americans watched the carnage in horror and concluded (incorrectly) that it was a military disaster for America. One of America’s most trusted newsmen, CBS’s Walter Cronkite, even appeared for a standup piece with distant fires as a backdrop. Donning a helmet, Cronkite declared the war lost….
Giap admitted in his memoirs that news media reporting of the war and the antiwar demonstrations that ensued in America surprised him. Instead of negotiating what he called a “conditional surrender,” Giap said they would now go the limit because America’s resolve was weakening and the possibility of complete victory was within Hanoi’s grasp.
Remember the 1960 Presidential Campaign with wonderful family man Democrat JFK — in fact a real life sex addict? Why wasn’t the total lie of Kennedy’s make-believe family life reported? ANSWER: The Democrat MEDIA was trying to elect THEIR GUY. Katherine Graham’s later biography about her leadership of the Washington Post admitted that they knew that JFK would’ve had sex with a female broom but didn’t feel it was appropriate to report.
Besides ignoring the dishonesty of the Democrat candidates for public office, the Democrat MEDIA has no trouble attacking Republicans over FALSE issues. Remember when Sarah Palin was named the Republican VP in 2008 & the Democrat MEDIA immediately began attacking her “qualifications”? These qualification attacks ignored the reality of FACT that Palin had better qualifications than EITHER Democrat, Obama or Biden. Today, even as bright a person as Dennis Miller is saying that Palin can’t be the Republican Presidential candidate because of the damage done her by the Democrat MEDIA. My point remains the opposite of Miller’s in that Palin is the ideal Republican Presidential candidate because to win she must fight the Democrat MEDIA & for America to survive, somebody has to.
Lastly, just think how the Democrat Media would be reacting if 3 female massage therapists had accused either Bush the father or son of abusing them. NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, PBS, NPR, Washington Post, New York Times & the rest would be like Piranha after raw meat in covering the story. Conclusions would be drawn about the unfitness of Republicans for public office across the board. Some Democrat MEDIA fool like Mike Barnicle would start shouting racism if the massage therapists were all white or all black. Democrat Obama would be held up as the model of family decorum for the entire World. Yet, today, only the New York Post is properly covering this story.
NO DEMOCRACY CAN CONTINUE TO EXIST WITH INFORMATION DOCTORED TO ALWAYS FAVOR ONE VIEWPOINT.

Socialism has been thriving in America since Democrat President for Life FDR’s New Deal which planted it through the vote-buying economy-compromising Social Security Program along with the beginnings of an oppressive Federal bureaucracy. The reality of today is that the Democrat Party has brought America through socialism to the final stages of the creation of a Soviet Amerika with Marxism showing its real monster face at the end.
In fact, socialism’s history in America began with Marxism’s “publication” in Europe in the 19th Century, intensified during WW I & became an epidemic with the New Deal. Even though patriotic Americans like Whittaker Chambers exposed this anti-American Marxist activity with his testimony in the Hiss trial & his book “Witness,” the Democrat MEDIA & ACADEMIA have managed to delude the average Americans with lies about the communist & Marxist penetration of the Federal Government & its policies.
This same crowd of liars & useful idiots has allowed Marxists to hide behind the terms liberalism or progressive even though Marxism is a reactionary herd philosophy that has always FAILED to better the lives of its citizens. All the while, socialism has advanced in rushes with the Great Society another epoch that allowed for expanded government intervention & control. As with the terms liberal & progressive, environmentalism has been used to hide Marxist attacks on individual liberty.
Unfortunately, further confusion comes today from a current version of “Joe McCarthy,” Glen Beck. When Nan & I worked together for Carl von Sternberg, we often heard Carl’s favorite adage which was keep it simple stupid (KISS). Learning KISS is something that Beck desperately needs. BUT, it would interfere with his Joe McCarthy-like use of today’s disaster for America to make him “great.” Also, Beck’s confessed alcoholism & previous ignorance causes his analysis to be an example of seeing the trees without the forest.
Beck babbles about progressives without realizing that real progressives & liberals existed like Teddy Roosevelt & Hiram Johnson who legitimately wanted to help Americans. These Republicans weren’t MARXISTS. Teddy was a dramatic leader who was politically incompetent like the Bush family. In 1912, Teddy’s self-promoting shenanigans made Democrat Woody Wilson President. As Beck has correctly noted, Wilson was a horrible President. Teddy finally came back to his senses for the November 1918 midterms where he helped Republicans gain dominance in Congress which allowed them to prevent Democrat Wilson’s ruinous League of Nations from harming America the way Democrat traitor Alger Hiss’s UN has. Johnson was a competent Senator who rightly opposed Democrat Wilson lying America into WW I. Beck’s presentation of good facts & incompetent conclusions will just help the Democrat Party unless he recognizes that their MARXISM alone is what is destroying America today.
Beck is also talking about “Black Liberation Theology” as if it has a life of its own. This historical travesty is simply Marxism’s poison pill for Christianity & has been recognized as such by the Pope. To Beck’s credit, he’s talking about the BLACK racism associated with this Marxist booby trap, but he is failing to answer with the real documented history associated with Christ’s life. This history was written & collected when Roman Emperor Constantine embraced Christianity. The Emperor wanted the facts of his new faith validated & sent his Mother, eventually Saint Helena, to the Holy Land to document the story of the faith.
Mom had a whole Roman Legion with her to help with the fact finding. The locals weren’t going to lie to Mom or try to cheat her with false relics with her Legionnaires standing by. So, in the 4th Century, the basic facts of the Judeo Christian Tradition were given a historical basis which REFUTES the nonsense of “Black Liberation Theology.” For example, Christ was a Jewish resident of the Roman Empire, NOT a black. Christ specifically accepted the power of the government separate from the power of religion. Most importantly, Christ insisted on individual responsibility for redemption along with individual liberty, not some mishmash of collectivism.
The increasingly fatal mess America is becoming is caused by Marxism ENABLED by the collapse of the 1st Amendment’s “free press.” A current example of this corruption of reporting with spin provided for facts or simply ignoring facts is President Obama’s handling of the BP spill which has been either pathetic in the extreme or treasonous or BOTH. But, the 90% of the MEDIA which is part of the Democrat Party has used a Goebbels-style screen of misreporting to protect their party which is a condition inevitably FATAL to a democracy.
The Democrat Liars of the MEDIA have been essential to both the survival in power & the very existence of the Democrat Party. The impact of this travesty can be understood only if you review the real history of the Democrat Party. Among the highlights of the Democrat Party’s real history is their contribution to starting the Civil War, their use of racism to prolong the Civil War into the 1960s, their President Wilson lying America into WW I, their President FDR attacking American democracy itself by becoming President for Life while prolonging the Great Depression & mismanaging WW II, their President JFK starting America’s Vietnam War, their President LBJ further corrupting America with Marxism through the Great Society and, 18 September 2008’s partial destruction of America’s economy. The “listing” of bads for the Democrat Party is virtually limitless. The Democrat Party would’ve been destroyed long ago & replaced with a patriotic party if Americans really knew what it has been doing to them. In effect, the Democrat Party is America’s Tape Worm hidden not by the host body but by the liars of Academia & Media.
For those who understand KISS, there’s one answer & that’s to vote Republican on 2 November 2010. Most importantly, don’t listen to either the well meaning “conservative” pundits like Mark Levin or the self-glorifying ham bones like Beck who will advise about voting “principles.” The Democrat Party is the problem & must be DEFEATED. Just as there were no good Nazis when they were in power, there are no good Democrats now since any Democrat contributes to Democrat control of Congress.

A ranking by 238 “academics” in a survey by Siena College Research Institute recently found FDR to be the best US President ever which shows one thing & that’s the fact that Democrats dominate academia. Why would FDR be ranked number 1? The answer is easy because the Siena “crowd” has developed an academics ranking that is based on a system that will “grade each president in 20 categories that covered a wide range of personal qualities and on-the-job skills, including communication ability, a willingness to take risks, imagination, integrity and luck.”
This complicated approach by itself shows that they created a rigged ranking system instead of simply using the success or failure of the President’s policies based on whether or not they actually benefited Americans. By this fact-based historical standard, there’s no doubt that Lincoln & Washington are the 2 best because Lincoln saved the Nation that Washington was a big part of creating. Instead, Democrat FDR laid the Marxist groundwork to weaken America in every sense of the word.
Moreover, the 22nd Amendment by itself shows that FDR belongs at the BOTTOM, not the top. The 22nd Amendment, which limited Presidents to 2 terms, was approved in record time & with true bipartisan support because even Democrats recognized that FDR had subverted democracy & turned himself into a President for Life. The Siena crowd could be accurate if they found FDR to be America’s greatest POLITICIAN. After all, FDR got elected 4 times & was more dead than alive when he won for the 4th time. He broke the previous convention of Presidents only running for 2 terms in 1940 when the Democrats demonstrated their craven nature by nominating him which is something the always patriotic Republicans had refused to do for Grant in 1876.
Even in term 1, FDR lied about his real health problems. Like Hitler, FDR was a magnetic leader who could mislead his countrymen with the force of his personality. But, like Hitler, FDR’s leadership sent his country in the wrong direction with the “timing” of the damage being inflicted immediately in Hitler’s case & over the long term in FDR’s. Again, name another President who immediately after his term ended had the Constitution amended to prevent his like again. You can’t because FDR was the only one which is why the Siena crowd had to come up with a special ranking system to make him number 1.
Besides this constitutional proof of FDR’s unworthiness, actual history demonstrates his poor performance for the benefit of Americans as their President. Democrats have spun the lie that FDR ended the Great Depression. Amity Shlaes’ The Forgotten Man is a recent book that documents the failure of FDR’s policies to end the Depression. Then as now, Democrat spending would never rise above the Party’s desire to build its political base at the expense of national interest. This ruthless concentration of POWER for power’s sake inevitably makes the Democrat Party anti American. FDR’s “New Deal” provided the Marxist infection that is now destroying America’s economy today with the bankrupt Social Security program an economic bubonic plaque.
Another Democrat lie is the ridiculous position that FDR was a great wartime leader for America & the Allied cause during WW II. Obviously, America was the essential component for Allied victory both as the arsenal of democracy & in sending powerful military forces to attack both in Europe & the Pacific. Yet, in the War’s settlement, FDR’s poor management made the Soviet Union the big winner. This same Soviet Union was Hitler’s Ally at the start of the War & only “joined” the Allies when Hitler chose to attack them for violations of their pre-War agreement. In fact, from the point of view of War policy, both Hitler & Stalin represent equal horror for mankind with Hitler a slightly greater threat because of Germany’s technological superiority. Nevertheless, FDR’s “preference” for the Soviet Union makes no sense for Americans or their Allies because at least Germany had a strong active resistance to Hitler while Stalin had slaughtered his opposition.
A prime example of Democrat spin about FDR is Michael Beschloss’s The Conquerors: Roosevelt, Truman and the Destruction of Hitler’s Germany, 1941 – 1945. Beschloss is a DEMOCRAT masquerading as an historian. Beschloss’s idiotic book takes the position that FDR’s announcement of “unconditional surrender” at the Casablanca Conference in January of 1943 was brilliant & a key factor in a great War strategy. This position embraces a concept that the Germans were inherently “evil” & needed to be reformed, not dealt with as a normal nation. It is often put forth as a justification for FDR’s mentor, Democrat Woodrow Wilson, lying the US into WW I. It is loosely based on an accusation of inherent German “militarism” which is a dramatically idiotic position for Americans to take since they benefited from that militarism with the training provided by Baron von Steuben to the Colonies inexperienced forces during the Revolutionary War.
Beschloss also pats the Democrats on the back for a New Germany rebuilt as a democracy after the War which is another fantasy. German democracy today is based on the government created by Bismarck in 1871 with continuing increases in the power of its democratic elements & a decrease in the power of the “President” which was the Kaiser’s position. Today’s Kaiser as President is a ceremonial position who is basically the representative of the majority party & not part of any whole cloth democracy created after WW II by Democrats. Beschloss more importantly ignores FDR’s refusal to deal with the German Resistance to Hitler who were the only people who could’ve saved millions by both ending the War & the Holocaust. These people were intentionally undercut by FDR’s “unconditional surrender” which was made after FDR refused to meet with Louis Lochner the US reporter who had been asked to represent them as was noted in The New Dealers’ War by Thomas Fleming.
Beschloss’s ridiculous book ignores the slaughter that occurred from FDR’s policy & in fact, spins about how effective it was as a War policy. Of course from January 1943 onward Hitler’s dead hand on command insured German defeat, but the excellence of the German Army as noted for example in A Genius for War by Col. T.N. Dupuy, USA Ret., meant slaughter for their enemies as they overwhelmed them. Beschloss talks about FDR wanting to keep the Red Army accepting the balance of the bloodshed which is refreshingly pro American for a Democrat BUT ignores the millions being slaughtered in the Holocaust that only the German Resistance could’ve stopped. It also ignores what the War was about with FDR’s policy of leaving Eastern Europe to the mercy of the Soviets both against why the Brits & French went to War on 1 September 1939 as well as America’s interest in not having WW II turn immediately into the Cold War.
Today’s Democrat Party survives & thrives on the myth of FDR being a great President & the New Deal being a success. Today’s Democrat Marxist programs for the massive expansion of the Federal Government can’t stand the light of real history when an accurate appraisal is made of FDR’s “reign.” At the same time, the Siena College Research Institute’s BOGUS rankings of Presidents also show how Americans have been brainwashed into believing that BAD is GOOD & that what really FAILED has been a success. Americans need to wake up & realize that America has had some horrible leaders whose efforts have been bad for both Americans & the rest of the World with FDR & Obama 2 prime examples. By the way, the Siena rankings have Clinton 13th, Obama 15th & REAGAN 18th. The phrase “ignorant unprincipled Democrat academic stooges” falls gently from my tongue.

The Democrat MEDIA treatment of these 3 individuals illustrates why this part of the Democrat Party is what enables the anti American policies of Democrats to survive & thrive. When Pope Benedict as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was being considered for election as the new Pontiff, Washington Post designated make believe Catholic EJ Dionne was immediately troubled by his “conservatism.” Dionne as a typical Marxist believes that “principles” are what is happening now, not immutable right & wrong. Dionne is a pro-choice Catholic which is as oxymoronic a term as can be applied to anyone. His commentary always begins with the premise that the tenets of Democrat Marxism are always right & any other position is wrong. Cardinal Ratzinger’s stated “originalist” views were anathema to Marxists then & remain so as he functions as Pope Benedict. The Pope’s background as a WW II member of the Hitler Youth has been used as a continuing attack on his character despite the fact that he had no choice as to whether or not to join. Despite the Pope’s popularity with most of “us” Catholics, Democrat MEDIA types like Dionne attack him every chance they can on any issue that they can use.
Contrast the Pope’s treatment with the current slobbering over the passing of KKK Byrd. KKK Byrd wasn’t forced to join the KKK. KKK Byrd VOLUNTEERED. In the grand scheme of EVIL, the KKK was on a par with the Hitler Youth in doctrine & far worse in actions. The KKK’s SOP of wearing masks contributes to their general perception as cowards. KKK Byrd wasn’t just a member. KKK Byrd was a LEADER of the KKK. KKK Byrd went into politics to foster the spread of his views. KKK Byrd filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as voting against it. Democrats love to spread the lie that ALL Dixiecrats became Republicans when only Strom Thurmond actually did & Thurmond was by KKK Byrd standards a NICE Dixiecrat with a record for opposing KKK practices like LYNCHING. KKK Byrd’s long service illustrates the power of the Democrat MEDIA to make a sow’s ear look like a silk purse. KKK Byrd had no business in the Congress of the US except as a “visitor.”
Another Democrat MEDIA fantasy creation involves Ted Kennedy & for that matter, the whole Kennedy family. Since the late 1950s, generations of Americans have been spun tales about the wonderful Kennedy Family & their “accomplishments.” The “best,” JFK, was a marvelous speaker who didn’t need a teleprompter. Yet, his personal life was a total fraud. The then undisclosed Democrat MEDIA refused to discuss his phony family life which was really a constant effort to have sex with anyone & everyone possible. As President, JFK made such a mess of Ike’s “Bay of Pigs” plan that his acceptance of responsibility is a big “so what.” JFK’s mishandling of the invasion resulted in his eventual surrender during the Missiles of October which he topped off by starting America’s Vietnam War. JFK was a patriot, but INCOMPETENT. Brother Bobby was JFK’s “fixer” with little accomplishment otherwise. But, Teddy set the real standard as a totally selfish wastrel who helped a few & harmed America with one bad immigration law after another as well as having a few personal foibles like Mary Jo.
KKK Byrd & Teddy Kennedy come together as long serving Senators who used Taxpayer’s $s to buy votes & the acclaim of a few while HARMING the majority. Democrat MEDIA useful idiots will still proclaim KKK Byrd as a national treasure without ANY real explanation. Byrd’s KKK background will be mentioned as “redeemed.” Redeemed by what?! Being a Democrat & buying into affirmative action to keep blacks on the plantation. In reality, KKK Byrd & Teddy Kennedy are DISGRACES to America. And, as long as these 2 are allowed to be proclaimed as great, America is DOOMED as is ably shown by the continuing march being led to Soviet Amerika by Chicago’s Pied Piper of Marxism Obama. May they rest in peace without their kind ever be seen again!

Americans just got to see another exercise in Democrat Party anti American policies & incompetence with President Obama firing General McChrystal for failing to recognize an enemy in the Democrat Media. It would be competent journalism if someone in the MEDIA would actually try to find out who set up General McChrystal by arranging the Rolling Stone “coverage.” Naturally, Obama’s actions are being applauded by the Democrat MEDIA who ignore the fact that McChrystal’s tormentors in the Democrat political Appointee community including the long time incompetent & corrupt Richard Holbrooke, who should be both fired & jailed, remain in place which insures continuing failure for America. Now, General Petraeus is set up to fail & along with him the whole of the 9/11/2001 War strategy.
During this episode, the Democrat MEDIA has been chirping about comparing McChrystal’s firing with that of Democrat President Truman’s firing of General MacArthur during the Korean War. Naturally, the real history of the Korean War is being ignored in this analogy which fits the fantasy of pinhead Truman, a typical Democrat useful idiot, being a great President. MacArthur, the greatest soldier America has produced so far, was RIGHT & Democrat Truman was WRONG. By not winning the Korean War in the 1950s, Democrat Truman left America the MESS of North Korea today. Now, McChrystal’s problems with the dysfunctional War “cabinet” of Democrat Obama hasn’t been solved or even fully discussed.
Anyone who has been a student of military history knows that WW II provides a clear example of how incompetent political leadership will defeat even the best military leadership. 1 September 1939, the German Army is ordered into Poland by Hitler who in this campaign keeps his monstrous big mouth shut about operations. In 2 weeks, the brave Polish Army is cut to pieces. Next campaign, the attack in the West, includes one Hitler interaction when he orders the Panzer Groups halted to “rest.” This stupidity allows the British Expeditionary Force to flee back to Britain from the French port of Dunkerque. Amazingly, throughout the rest of the war, Hitler’s pattern of mistakes continued with no evidence that he ever learned anything from these mistakes except for a 2 month period after the end of the Battle of Stalingrad.
There, Hitler’s stupidity had allowed the 6th Army to be surrounded in Stalingrad & in desperation, he turned to probably the most outstanding officer of WW II, Field Marshal Erich von Manstein to save the day. Von Manstein managed to scrape together a panzer force that then drove to within 20 miles of Stalingrad only to have Hitler refuse authorization for the 6th Army to fight its way out. When this guaranteed the loss of the 6th Army, Hitler temporarily left von Manstein alone which enabled this super soldier to save the rest of the German troops in Army Group South. When von Manstein finally received reinforcements including the WW II Army’s version of the Prussian Guard, the GrossDeutschland Division, he turned on the pursuing Russian forces that had won at Stalingrad & destroyed them. After this astounding victory, Hitler returned to control & finished the job of losing WW II.
Obama’s lack of experience in ANYTHING relevant to being President of the US makes his margin for error as critical as is possible. Everything that comes along requiring experience in management, military service & employee relations is a matter of FIRST IMPRESSION for Obama. When this lack of experience is combined with Obama’s basic anti American “values,” the country’s peril should be recognized as being EXTREME. Hitler both started & LOST WW II. Obama has essentially started the transformation of America into Soviet Amerika while refusing to see Muslim Terrorists as a problem. Consequently, American society has one foot on glare ice & the other in quicksand.

Thomas Sowell made an accurate comparison between Democrats & Nazis based on historical facts.
Perhaps Thomas Sowell continues to be considered too intelligent to be viewed as relevant by the Democrat MEDIA but his analysis of where America is today versus Hitler’s Nazi takeover of Germany fits the FACTS. Today’s Democrats are destroying the essence of America’s democracy by IGNORING the Constitution just as Hitler ignored Germany’s laws & traditions. No difference with predictable horror to follow for American citizens!
From Investor’s Business Daily — Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?:
When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics.
Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler’s rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions….
In our times, American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it….
Just where in the Constitution of the United States does it say that a president has the authority to extract vast sums of money from a private enterprise and distribute it as he sees fit to whomever he deems worthy of compensation? Nowhere.
And yet that is precisely what is happening….
Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Visit IBD and read all of this article by Thomas Sowell.

My little observation should’ve been first made in the mainstream MEDIA on the day after the Democrat primary if America actually had a “free press.” The fact that 90% of the MEDIA is part of the Democrat Party makes honest public discourse in America now almost impossible. Consequently, the Democrat MEDIA is now attacking Republicans for the anti democratic nature of the Democrat Party & their primaries rather than HONESTLY looking at the similarities between Greene & Obama.
After all, Alvin Greene & Barack Obama share a similar unknown background along with zero accomplishment in life but the Democrat MEDIA is making believe that Greene is somehow an illegitimate candidate while Obama is legitimate & above question. Yet, both Obama & Greene won their races because of the Democrat Party’s racist class warfare tactics. And, both Obama & Greene defeated far more qualified WHITE candidates. Of course, Greene did serve in the US military & has had a discharge record consistent with long time Democrat Senator & 2004 Democrat Presidential candidate John Kerry. Like Kerry, Greene is largely inarticulate & lives off of other people’s money. Unlike Obama, public records indicate that Greene is an American citizen. And, Greene doesn’t have any terrorist friends like Bill Ayers or alien space ship traveler friends like Louis Farrakhan. Only the lens of Democrat MEDIA bias separates Alvin & Barack from similar scrutiny plus teleprompter skills.
The Democrat MEDIA has already done everything possible to make any questions about Obama’s background seem like they come from a lunatic fringe even when the issues raised are perfectly reasonable. Aaron Klein’s The Manchurian President raises reasonable & serious questions about Obama which have been covered only by FOX. At the same time that “chosen” Democrats are always assumed to be “perfect,” Democrats can make ANY accusation against Republicans without significant reproach. Democrat proven failure retread candidate for CA Governor Jerry Brown called his Republican opponent Meg Whitman a “Goebbels” which is an amazing observation for any Democrat politician to make since the Democrat Party is constructed with the kind of lies that Goebbels used for Hitler. Hear any uproar about that comment from Couric, Wilson & the rest of the Democrat MEDIA gang?
So, the only reason our man Alvin Greene is being criticized by the Democrat MEDIA is that their Democrat Politician Masters want a “better” candidate. A candidate that can elegantly read Democrat lies from a teleprompter that can then be reinforced by the liars of the Democrat MEDIA.

Had ANY FOX female reporter made the comment that Helen Thomas made about sending the Jews back to their real homes in Germany & Poland her career would’ve ended INSTANTLY & the uproar from the 90% of the MEDIA that is Democrat would’ve erupted like a Category 5 hurricane against her & the network with demands for constant apologies & amends. Instead, the obviously longtime ignorant bigot Ms. Thomas was allowed to “retire.” You see Helen Thomas has been part of the Democrat MEDIA & she’s on the “right” side just like fellow ignoramuses Couric, Maher, Olberman, Matthews, van den Heuvel, Conason, Carville, & the rest who can say & do anything because they’re Democrats.
This situation began in the 1930s with the Democrat Marxist takeover of the MEDIA & ACADEMIA during the New Deal. It survives because of the fantasy grown through McCarthyism that the Communist penetration of the US during FDR’s Democrat Administration either didn’t happen or was harmless. Alger Hiss is defended as being persecuted by the “evil” Nixon & Whittaker Cambers & his PROVEN treason is ignored. These lies are bundled behind the Democrat fantasy of WW II as the Last Good War. How did Marxism through socialism which is its addictive form spread throughout Europe right after the War? Answer: America’s Democrat Party HELPED! Today, this same effort is going on world wide through the Marxist UN created by FDR’s Democrat Traitor Alger Hiss.
Helen Thomas’s comments by themselves are a demonstration of abysmal ignorance & stupidity. Anyone with a modicum of understanding of the history of Western Civilization knows that Jews & all original Christians come from the Holy Land. Muslims only entered the area through military invasion & later conversion by the sword. Of course, most of the Democrat MEDIA are as ignorant as Helen Thomas. And, Thomas & her colleagues have a built-in Marxist bigotry towards any people who have actually made their own way in the world through their individual effort as opposed to the herd collective efforts of their Marxist brethren or the failed beggars of Islam & the 3rd World.
But, Democrats have had remarkable success selling their party of reactionary bigots as the party of the “common man” or more idiotically as the party of “civil rights.” Ms. Thomas’s hatred for Jews is consistent with the party that allowed FDR’s Democrat Administration to refuse to allow the Jewish passengers of the German ocean liner St. Louis dock in the US after they had bought themselves away from Hitler. It was also consistent with Democrat President for Life FDR’s refusal to deal with the German Resistance to Hitler who were the only people who could save millions through ending the War & the Holocaust.
Helen Thomas personifies the intolerance for democracy & individual liberty of the Democrat Party from before the Civil War until today. Ms. Thomas’ bigotry fits perfectly in the long time Democrat tactic of Class Warfare which by itself is a recipe for constant turmoil. American democracy depends on finally “pacifying” the Democrat Party in order to end its constant virus of us-versus-them conflict which is designed to maintain its power. America needs 2 patriotic political parties to survive not just the Republican Party alone as the one standing for its citizens while the Democrats constantly search for a new class of “deprived” to clamor for their fair share under the guidance & control of the Democrat Party.
An even better example of Democrat MEDIA bigotry is Rosie O’Donnell who has herself made comments as ignorant & bigoted as Helen Thomas but who has the added advantage of being a multiple “deprived” with her status as GAY, ignorant & UGLY. Rosie is a staunch defender of Helen Thomas, Islamic Terror & degenerate 3rd World behavior against the success of the Judeo-Christian Tradition. Rosie wallows in her ignorance while constantly being employed by the Democrat MEDIA because she’s one of them. America’s current lack of a “free press” makes 2 November 2010 a Gettysburg of elections.
