Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals & How They Are Being Applied Today


Blog Editor: Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me. Recently, the Facebook censorship tactic I’ve experienced is a couple of Group shares then jailed under the false accusation of posting too fast. So I ask those that read this, to combat censorship by sharing blog and Facebook posts with your friends or Groups you belong to.

 

Many Conservatives who pay attention to how government and politics affects their lives are aware of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Those same Conservatives are aware of prominent Dems living the Rules for Radicals (cough ahem – Crooked Hillary, Deep State Obama, among others).

 

Alinsky’s Rules are a Socialist agenda to transform America AWAY from its Founding Principles and Christian heritage. Take from the Ocensor article cross posted here about how much the present Dem Agenda smacks of old uncle Saul.

Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals & How They Are Being Applied Today

 

Alinsky quote on Social Transformation

 

By Timothy Benton

Sep 23, 2019

Ocensor

 

Many of us have heard of Saul Alinsky, his rules for radicals, the left scoffs at our looking to this, but is there any truth that this is being applied to the US political landscape today, and if it is, who is applying it?

 

To understand what these rules are we have to look at what he asked for and what was his goal. Alinsky was a socialist who lived in the 1900s in the US, graduated from the University of Chicago with a Ph.D. in Psychology. He went on and worked for the State of Illinois for a short time, then went on to be a community organizer, writer, political activist.

 

Saul  Alinsky

 

He is looked to as a author of socialist ideology, something that many on the left aspire to follow, and much of his “Rules for Radicals,” published a year before his death is seen as a guideline of how to bring about a social change in America to set it up for socialist rule.

So what is this “Rules for Radicals” and what did it advocate? The whole document was set up to show how to bring a nation to its knees so a socialist change could come to the land and would bring about socialism to the state. Here are the items and what they were set up for:

 

1)   Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

 

2)   Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3)   Debt  – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level.  That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4)   Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5)   Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Water, Electrical power, Housing and neighborhood demographics, and Income).

6)   Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.  (Common Core?)

7)   Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8)   Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor.  This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take Tax from the wealthy with the support of the poor.

 

So how does this list apply today? I would say if you look at the actions of the last president, then of the left today, with people like AOC, Sanders, along with her squad and many from the left you see this in full effect today. So let’s look at each item and see if it is in workings today.

 

  • Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

 

i. We saw two activists within the Democratic party, one that was very much of an activist in her school days, one that went from activist and community organizer to the White House, Clinton and Obama pushed from their times in the White House to put in place socialized medical care, Clinton failed when she was the first lady, Obama partially succeeded, but has much of what he pushed now being stripped by Trump.

ii. Even though Trump has pushed back on this, today you see the whole Democrat party pushing for universal healthcare, the more left-leaning or outright socialist the candidates are, who is running for president, we see idea’s being presented from strengthening of Obamacare to outright shutting down private healthcare insurance and putting in a Canadian style social healthcare, where the state controls all.

iii. We now hear that healthcare is a fundamental human right, this is used as a means of pushing that there should be no choice in this, the government, as a guarantor of our rights should be the one to take charge of our health care, it should never be in the hands of private business or individuals. The far-left socialist, Sanders and Warran are pushing this; when asked if our healthcare insurance will be taken, both are equal in their moves to deflect from the question and never answer.

iv. By demanding that universal healthcare is given to all, including illegals, the left is demanding that our nation be changed to what they demand, if you are not willing to change the structure of our government the left labels and then attacks, as they do with everything.

 

  • Poverty – with the way the economy is going under Trump this is getting harder and harder to exploit, so instead of trying to exploit poverty, instead the left pushes to scare people to think it is coming, or to openly wish for a great recession, such as Bill Mahr did.

 

VIDEO: Maher wishes for recession, worth it if Americans lose their homes.

 

 

1. We have seen that some within the left want to see a recession, turn to any paper, turn on the news, you are now bombarded with stories of a recession coming our way. The fact that our economy is the strongest it has been in years, that is a considerable inconvenience for the left, they know then the only way to push this today is not to say people are worse off, instead, bad times are coming, when they do, it is all Trump’s and the Right’s fault, so you need to come to us today so we can protect you against this when it happens.

2. The second thing you see is the left turning to very radical ideas that will radically transform our economy and is guaranteed to bring about complete and total poverty, thus you have the Green New Deal. When the left is unable to feed off the fear of people of things turning sour, they then look for ways to bring about an economic downturn. The dream of the left is to see our economy fail, the benefit for them is two-fold: First, they get rid of the arch-enemy who they see as standing in their way for the idea of a socialist paradise. That would be the conservative right and Trump.

 

Modern creative businessman illustration concept.

Debt Snowball

 

 

i. One of the ways to bring people and nation to poverty is to rack up their debt. We had two trillion dollar stimulus given to Obama, but instead of our economy thriving, unemployment going down with this, instead, our economy got worse, our unemployment figures continued to rise.

ii. Under Obama, we saw our deficit double, and one has to ask, what was accomplished? Our growth never exceeded 2%, he told us jobs were not coming back, he fell back on his socialist ideals when he demanded that more and more of our lives and our dependence be given to the state.

iii. While the debt is growing under Trump, and I would love to see a reverse of this, we also have to understand, with all these trillions that Obama was given, our national defense was left in shatters, Trump had little choice but to pick up the budget just to build back up a tattered force, many of our jets were unable to fly, it got so bad the Navy was raiding museums to get spare parts. Trump’s moves were never to set this nation in debt; he is moving to pick up the economy to cover spending, an increase in the economy means there are more funds available to be taxed.

 

Constitution-Gun – Second Amendment

 

  • Take Away Our 2nd Amendment – no party has done more to try to restrict our right to bear arms, something that is part of the American fabric in life, it is a right granted to all Americans, although I now see this right slowly being stripped frequently on almost a daily basis. The left knows a well-armed population is not so quickly forced to go with government programs and forced ideology, take away the guns you take away the ability to resist.

 

i. While I can’t say for certain that these school shootings are far too convenient, but I must ask if you are so concerned about school shootings, why aren’t you willing to secure the schools that house our children so this does not happen? As terrible as this sounds, I am at the point that I believe the left thinks these children being lost are worth the sacrifice if they can take our guns in the end. That is why the left refuses to act to protect our schools if we do that, then they will see no more shootings to use as a backdrop to press their taking of our guns.

 

Welfare

 

  • Welfare – no place is the dependence the left wants on display than in our inner cities. The grand experiment by Johnson has laid our cities to waste; families are not in multiple generations where not a soul has worked, their dependence of the state is total. When you create a whole class that is dependent on the state, you have an almost entire class of people who are easily controlled.

 

i. The inner cities in America, parts that are where the primary population of our African American demographic lives, you have a whole group that is told they need to vote as they are told, it is best for them, even though little can be shown to back this up.

ii. Today the growth of African American’s leaving the Democratic party is quickly bringing the far left to the point of panic, so what did they do? They moved on from these people, still demand that they support them, all while turning on them and moving their support for illegals that have no say in government affairs. This is why there is such a strong move now to give illegals the right to vote.

 

Systemic Evaluation Education

 

  • Education – the plan here was to use our school’s as a means not to teach, instead, indoctrinate. I must say, no place is it evident that this is being applied in America today than in our whole mess of an education system. We send our children to school to get an education so they can better their lives, yet starting now in grade schools are children are under a constant barrage of liberal ideology.

 

i. No place are these ideas in its entirety shown more than in schools. You have young people that are poor, they are going through school, so the concept of social handouts is very appealing to them, they care not about taxes, they aren’t paying any, instead they are living off the graces of the taxpayer, thus they feel in many cases they are entitled to these handouts.

ii. We also see the lack of freedom of speech, of different ideas, this is something these young people think is unacceptable. Thus you have riots and using the heckler’s veto when they wish to shut up opposing views. As was with Russia in their revolution, China too, the leaders or activist go for the youth, they are less able to see what this will lead to in the future, only care about the present.

 

Religion

 

  • Religion – Religion or faith, it gives hope to a people, that is why socialism, in every nation it has been implemented in, religion was either controlled by the state or was stomped out, or at least the effort was to do this. If you have a people without hope, they need to look to someone or something for hope; if you put the government in place to give this hope, they will turn to it.

 

i. The colleges, the stronghold of this movement are also moving to push this. If you look at the teachings of evolution, global warming, you don’t see a science, where all can be questioned, it is OK to challenge theories to see if they stand up to the questions presented. Instead, you are attacked by zealots, with every bit as much zeal as you see from other faiths when you question their core doctrines. The left has moved to replace religion with science, they seem to fail to understand, they are two separate things, but when you do this, you still accomplish what you were seeking to do, taking away hope outside of what socialist is trying to present.

 

Noam Chomsky Class War quote

 

  • Class Warfare – To control the masses, as was seen in Germany, Russia, China, and other nations, you need to create an enemy, for the socialist, it is the elites, the ones driving the economy. They push that somehow these people are gifted, they have earned nothing, gotten what they have due to their taking it from the less fortunate, but is this the case? Let’s look at that:

 

i. We have heard it said that people with too much money should be forced to hand it over to people that have little or none, this is the groundwork of socialism, but is really good practice. You have Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, and others, tech giants that have amassed unheard-of wealth, but did they steal? No, they created a product, one that had a need, they used this need to create wealth, no one was stolen from, people paid for this, this was passed on to these people that created these items.

ii. Socialist countries start off by stripping the wealthy of their wealth, this may seem like a good thing, but when this is the class creating jobs, handing down wealth to people under them due to this creation, what happens to jobs when they are taken out of the equation? Suggest you look to Venezuela and see what happens. A large oil producer, a wealthy nation, but the standards of the nations around it, now is in utter poverty, the people are in the streets looking for some means of survival. All they have done is stopped upwards mobility and made all people poor.

 

We may not think that Alinsky’s playbook is in play, sites like Snopes go out of their way to try to discredit where the practice of this is shown, but it is very much in play, it is just being done in secret. What they fail to state is that communism or socialism is exactly what Alinsky was pushing.

 

We are all in a big chest match, pieces are being moved, many times not in a way that we suspect, but the results will be the same, either we move to counter this or sit and watch it happen.

The Only Evolution I Trust is Conservative Evolution


John R. Houk

© October 10, 2015

Yesterday I received a donation exhortation from the TheTeaParty.net under the guise of Ron Dove. I get these fundraising emails quite often from various Tea Party organizations and Conservative organizations as you probably do as well (If you happen to be a Leftie you probably receive the fundraiser emails also but from the other side of political spectrum). Many of these organizations are quite worthy of support while others probably pad their non-profit salary base more than they should. Nearly all the legitimate Tea Party/Conservative fundraising base have the correct message that you have an affinity toward. In my case, as a rule, I tend not to make political donations until it closer to an election and funding is more defined to whence it is designated.

I am about to cross post TheTeaParty.net fund raiser not because I am promoting them in particular but rather because Ron Dove gives some background from growing up in a Liberal family then in adulthood migrating to Conservatism. That story is similar to mine and I suspect many others as well. It is good to know that I was not the only one to become disgusted the Left/Democrat Party paradigm.

Give if you want to, but perhaps you should a little digging into the Tea Party/Conservative organization best fits your thoughts on a national level. For that matter a local Tea Party organization (one Tea Party directory) might be closer to your heart because they are more aware of combatting Leftist concepts in your community.

I want to tell you why I’m with the Tea Party

By Ron Dove

Sent: 10/9/2015 1:02 PM

Sent from: TheTeaParty.net

It’s supporters like you that make the TEA Party great. I want to thank you for your past support of the TEA Party and encourage you to take a moment to initiate a monthly donation, and here’s why.

I became involved in the TEA Party Movement because I wanted to encourage people to think for themselves. I grew up in a Liberal household. As I was growing up it seemed like most decisions liberals made were because they were always made that way in the past. They did not even think about an issue or who to vote for. They always toed the party line. How many minority voters have voted as Democrats simply because they do not know any different? I, and we, should be educating all voters on what the Tea Party and Conservative Politics has to offer. And that’s why I got involved – to make some kind of difference.

But, if you are like me, you are also sick and tired of the same big Political game going on in Washington. It appears that regardless who our “Representatives” are, they are in their positions for themselves and not for us. How can someone represent me and us if they are there for themselves?

What issues are important to you? This is what is important to me:

o Immigration/Secure Our Borders – I live 40 miles from the Mexican border in Southern Arizona. I know about the illegal immigration problem because I see it and live it every day. My Grandparents came to this Country as immigrants. I appreciate that people want and need to come here to make a better life for themselves and their families. However, it has to be done the proper way! Our Government needs to enforce existing laws and come up with new ways to keep undocumented people out of Our Country.

o Our 2nd Amendment Rights – It seems like we are constantly trying to protect our 2nd Amendment rights. I am sick of this constant occurrence. Are you?

o Health Care – The Affordable Health Act is not affordable and is one of the worst legislations ever adopted. We need a leader/leaders that can do better than this!

o Taxes – Is the current system fair? Does everyone pay in? This system is not only flawed, but many of the deductions, loopholes and exemptions make no sense. Do we even need the IRS?

o The Economy and Small Business – My father started his own Dental Practice in 1950. Small business is what grows the Economy and is the life blood of small towns and cities. When was the last time we had an Administration that was small business friendly? We need leaders who understand this and cultivate employment and economic opportunities.

Finally, what ever happened to personal responsibility? We live in the time where everyone thinks they deserve a hand out. We need our Representatives to respect those who are truly in need, but instill the sense of personal responsibility in every program and fund created and maintained by Our Government.

I can think of many more issues that are important to me, us and Our Country. The TEA Party needs your continued help so we unite Conservatives, expose non-Conservatives to another way of thinking and to help to ensure we have nominees that reflect our values. We have expanded our member base vastly in the five years I have been involved; but we desperately need your continued support right away to continue to do what we do. Please, take a moment to “CLICK HERE” and renew your monthly donation so we can continue to be relevant over the critical next 14 months!

Sincerely,

Ron Dove
Tea Party since 2009

P.S. it’s not going to be easy but we can do this – we can take our American democracy back from the special interest-dominated Washington political elites who are driving our freedom and prosperity into the ground. Be a part of our historic effort to turn things around by becoming a Monthly Sustaining Member of the Tea Party today.

Obama Care is Not a Personalized Healthcare system and here’s why………

Sent: 9/27/2013 8:50 AM

 

I want to show you how Obamacare is designed by one of its creators to NOT Promote Longer Life and the Principle architect even admits it by saying he does not believe in Personalized Healthcare!!!! You will see more people fall through the cracks when a One size fits all system is in place!!!!

 

http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/26/health/personalized-medicine-myth-reality/index.html

 

[Blog Editor: Tony Newbill wants you to focus on Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel as involved in constructing Obamacare. Here is some thoughts you should know about Dr. Emmanuel:

 

Scheiner said that the Obama administration neglected the advice of real physicians and instead decided to let political operatives craft Obama’s signature health care law. People like Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, were the kinds of medical people that the White House consulted.

 

“Ezekiel is a medical oncologist, not a general physician,” said Scheiner. (Former Obama Doctor: Obamacare is a Failure; By Justin Credible; HABLEDASH; 5/14/12)

 

And this:

 

Ezekiel Emanuel is one of Obamacare’s chief architects, and he just announced in the Wall Street Journal that there is a crucial flaw in its foundation. How can anything so universally reviled and precariously designed ever enter the construction phase? (How to kill Obamacare without even trying; By Yates Walker; Daily Caller; 5/8/13 3:40 PM)

 

Essentially the article is about the optimism of an Eric Topol and the condemnation of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s of Personalized Medicine as something not compatible with Obamacare.]


Is personalized medicine a myth?

 

 

The intersection of technology, science, medicine and design has led to an explosion of apps for monitoring blood pressure, glucose levels and heart rate and measuring how well you sleep, whether you’re stressed or relaxed and whether you’re eating healthy. We have been able to harness the existing digital infrastructure to get personalized health data we did not have access to before.

 

Combine wireless sensors with the study of genes, or genomics, imaging and a proliferation of health-focused social networks, and you have a convergence capable of bringing about the “creative destruction” of medicine.

 

That’s the term Topol uses in his 2012 book, “The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care,” to refer to the transformation that accompanies radical innovation.

 

This disruption, said Topol, will be characterized by the personalization of drugs, devices, screening tests and …

 

 

But not everyone agrees with Topol.

 

“Personalized medicine is a myth. It’s hyperbolic,” argued Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, vice provost for global initiatives and chairman of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

 

According to Emanuel, tailoring medical treatments to individual characteristics of each patient is both overly optimistic and cost-prohibitive. He likened it to buying a custom-made suit versus one off the rack.

 

 

In addition to what he felt would be explosive costs, Emanuel also argued against personalized medicine by observing that behavioral and lifestyle changes like diet, smoking and exercise, which account for 40% to 60% of all disease, are far likelier to have an impact on longevity and health-care affordability than genetics and thus should be the center of focus.

 

 

The bottom line is that when it comes to technology’s disruption of medicine, Topol believes the genie is already out of the bottle. Some of the best cancer centers are on this path. They are, however, treating a minority of the patients out there.

 

There are a host of barriers to realizing the promise of personalized medicine — insurance reimbursement, privacy and regulatory issues, information and aggregation issues, among others — but perhaps none so pernicious as resistance.

 

“The problem is that it takes physicians so long to accept a radical change. And the lag is unacceptable,” Topol said.

 

Resist as some might, the power of one’s own data is the future of medicine.

 

“It is only a matter of when,” Topol said. (READ ENTIRETYIs personalized medicine a myth? By Amanda Enayat; CNN Health; 7/28/12 updated 1:06 PM EDT)

http://business.inquirer.net/24687/little-chance-for-rh-bill

 

 

The President [Blog Editor: In this article the “President” is referring to the President of the Philippines.] and his advisors may completely disregard the prophecy made in the 1970s by the late Pope Paul VI that the widespread use of contraceptives would actually lead to all these moral and socio-economic evils. They, however, cannot ignore the scientific studies done by a Nobel laureate by the name of George Akerlof. They don’t have to take my word for it. Dr. Akerlof is easily accessible through Google. If the President himself takes time to google the name George Akerlof, he will find abundant materials that this economics professor has written about the high correlation between contraception and high rates of divorce, abortion, single mothers, etc.  He will find out that Dr. Akerlof has no religious motivation whatsoever in presenting his data to the social scientists of the world.  His conclusions are based completely on empirical observations.

 

Actually, Dr. Akerlof has just demonstrated scientifically what everyday observation based on anecdotal evidence has already revealed to any objective student of human behavior. In countries where artificial contraceptives are as easily accessible as candies in the corner store, the rate of abortions has risen by leaps and bounds in the last twenty to thirty years, especially in North America and Europe. As regards divorce and out-of-wedlock births, Dr. Akerlof’s empirical conclusions have been confirmed by a recent study conducted by a multinational team of social scientists in a project entitled The Empty Cradle (also accessible through Google).

 

 

The study found out that “accompanying the global mega-trend of falling birthrates is a radical change in the circumstances in which many children are raised, as country after country has seen divorce and/or out-of-wedlock births surge and a sharp drop in the percentage of children living with both of their married parents. In much of Europe and the Americas, from the United Kingdom to the United States, from Mexico to Sweden, out-of-wedlock births are the ‘new normal,’ with 40 percent or more of all children born without married parents. Though many of these births are to cohabiting couples, families headed by cohabiting couples are significantly less stable than couples headed by married families. This means that children born outside of marriage are markedly more likely to be exposed to a revolving cast of caretakers and to spells of single parenthood compared to children born to married couples.” (Little chance for RH Bill; By Dr. Bernardo M. Villegas; Inquirer Business; 10/14/11)

Janet Yellen: The Wrong Choice

 

President Obama is widely expected to announce this afternoon that he is nominating Fed governor Janet Yellen as the next chairman of the Federal Reserve, the most powerful institution in the world.

 

I am sure Yellen’s nomination will receive the standard praiseworthy platitudes from a wide array of sycophants deeply embedded in the system.

 

For those pleasantly hoodwinked by the charades masquerading as our current central bank policy, a Yellen-led Federal Reserve should look just divine. Meanwhile those watching closely would call her style of central banking little more than smoke and mirrors.

 

 

Creating bubbles via QE may be nice for those with excess reserves buying cheap assets (i.e. Wall Street banks and the like), but let’s be honest. How has QE really helped the Fed in its stated mandates of lowering unemployment and generating stable prices?

FW: I think the way forward with this healthcare debacle between is this …

Sent: 10/3/2013 9:04 AM

 

Because there is no way to stop this Mobster of a Healthcare Policy from Collapsing the whole entire industry, I think the way forward with this healthcare debacle between is this …. Why not create a subsidy exchange for everyone to graduate into the exchanges rather than just some getting a subsidy and others not??

 

I think this would equalize the way the market and corporations ebb and flow into the relationship or partnership between public and private sector entities?

 

Allowing the private sector some sort of way to offer subsides to cost share in the insurance premium markets and the ACA [Affordable Care Act] be a Guarantee of those subsidies much like say the SBA, HUD and Fanny and Freddy guarantees private sector funding should be considered so the Relationship between Public and Private sector markets can be streamlined and allow the system to work inspirationally.

 

The Inspiration to help people will be better served I think and this will open the door to solving the Government shutdown because this offers the Republicans a method of policy that compliments conservative values and at the same time keeps the ACA helping with the failing system much like how a Governor on a Motor regulates its RPM so it doesn’t blow a Head Gasket when under extreme compression due to demand for power to pull a heavy load. And this is what you are trying to maintain right while we navigate the “Bumps and Hills” in the road to success????

 

I think you can be the one to offer a “National Subsidy Fix” to a Stalled out debate here that cannot be refused because of the way the private sector market can rally around the “Same Relationship like the other Government agencies work to guarantee funding flows”. 

 

To further build on this idea about how to equally subside the ACA healthcare exchanges, we should debate a “Rewards Based Subsidy Program” maybe????

 

I think tailoring something like the way Auto Insurance is considerate in that if a family is prudent in carefully creating a living practice that results in less accidents a reward of lower costs to premiums is the result means that this would be true in healthcare too. And that a doctor or medical providers cost structure would be based off an ACA annual report on medical usage. And that if the costs are rising that more educational values need to be implemented to drive societal understanding of its need to be better at performance of their healthcare. So [then] costs can be controlled and “Rewards” sustained in the Subsidy Exchanges which under the ACA Subsidy Exchanges associated with the ACA Healthcare exchanges would be then accessible to families that provide performance records that show less usage. And they be rewarded for this performance in less premium costs and that subsidy exchange then grows in value to afford a sector where costs are needing greater subsidy to offset their costs.

 

This seems to be a Strategy I heard the insurance company named Tenet Healthcare this morning use in picking areas to invest in and associated with the ACA. But this needs to be a National strategy and so doing something with the subsidy policy needs to be the catalyst for bringing together supplement exchanges to equalize lower cash flow areas in the USA with higher. So that the Insurance Companies do not squeeze the higher cash flow areas for profits forcing more and more onto the Government exchanges . . .

 

“Cash Flow is the driving factor and of course you know this but the idea that this subsidy can be a market that the investing community can invest in to recycle unused capital and reallocate it based off an ebb and flow of healthcare performance” can be achieved here I think. But I think you have to create the rewards policy that will drive performance in individuals trying to be as healthy as possible.

 

“Make it a Sport to be as healthy at living as Possible and I think we all win”!!!!

 

Thanks and have a great day.

Obama-Backed Trans-Pacific Partnership Expands Corporate Lawsuits Against Nations for Lost Profits

 

The Obama administration is facing increasing scrutiny for the extreme secrecy surrounding negotiations around a sweeping new trade deal that could rewrite the nation’s laws on everything from healthcare and Internet freedom to food safety and the financial markets. The latest negotiations over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) were recently held behind closed doors in Lima, Peru, but the Obama administration has rejected calls to release the current text. Even members of Congress have complained about being shut out of the negotiation process. Last year, a leaked chapter from the draft agreement outlined how the TPP would allow foreign corporations operating in the United States to appeal key regulations to an international tribunal. The body would have the power to override U.S. law and issue penalties for failure to comply with its rulings.

 

We discuss the TPP with two guests: Celeste Drake, a trade policy specialist with the AFL-CIO, and Jim Shultz, executive director of the Democracy Center, which has just released a new report on how corporations use trade rules to seize resources and undermine democracy. “What is the biggest natural resources without any regard for the environment or labor standards? The threat is democracy,” Shultz says, (READ THE REST Obama-Backed Trans-Pacific Partnership Expands …; from: a daily independent global news hour with Amy Goodman & Juan González; Democracy Now; 6/6/13)

The government knows it’s a medical killing machine

Here are four smoking guns that substantiate the title of this article.

 

Smoking gun #1: As I detailed in my two previous articles (click here and here), Dr. Barbara Starfield’s article in the July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, spelled out the damage:

 

The US medical system kills 225,000 Americans per year. That’s well over two MILLION deaths per decade.

 

The US government supports, in numerous ways, this system. And now, through the implementation of Obamacare, many more previously uninsured Americans will enter the killing fields.

 

Dr. Starfield’s data are not classified. They’re not a state secret. Any doctor or medical bureaucrat has access to them.

 

Yet nothing of note is being done to remedy the ongoing crime.

 

Smoking gun #2: Starfield’s report indicated that, every year in the US, 106,000 Americans die as a result of FDA-approved medical drugs.

 

The FDA is the only agency tasked with certifying these drugs as safe and effective. With such certification, the drugs enter the public pipeline.

 

On the FDA’s own website, under the heading, “Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions,” appears the following text: “Over 2 MILLION ADRs [Adverse Drug Reactions] yearly; 100,000 DEATHS yearly; ADRs 4th leading cause of death…”

 

Astonishingly, the FDA takes no responsibility for any of this. They, and only they, can approve the drugs as safe and effective. They list the numbers of deaths and (READ THE REST The government knows it’s a medical killing machine; By Jon Rappoport; Jon Rappoport’s Blog; 10/5/13)

If Obamacare ends up limiting treatment options then that will fit well with these concerns, right?????

 

Just like all MSMedia does, See how even the Weather Channel is packing water for the population control policy makers:

How We’re All Going to Die in 2050

 

Doctors likely won’t list overpopulation as a cause of death in 2050, but research shows that it could contribute to several deadly problems, according to the Negative Population Growth organization (NPG).

 

“The consequences of U.S. overpopulation already surround us: vanishing green spaces, increasing urban sprawl and development, overcrowded schools, understaffed hospitals, rising unemployment, dwindling natural resources, a decaying infrastructure and environmental destruction,” Tracy Canada, deputy director of the NPG, told Weather.com. “These problems are part of our daily lives as American citizens, and none of them are in any way improved by our nation’s growth. In fact, they are all worsened by adding more people to the equation.”

 

In 2011, the United Nations estimated the world population was 7 billion, and could reach 8 billion in 2023. After the largest population increase of any decade, America’s population sits at approximately 315 million and is projected to hit 363 million in 2030, according to the NPG.

Does OBAMACARE DIVIDE SOCIETY?

Exchanges & Premium Subsidies

 

One of the main features of ObamaCare is the creation of a new federally-financed health care entitlement that will subsidize the insurance premiums for low and moderate income Americans, beginning in 2014. The amount of the subsidy is inversely related to family income and will be a administered by new state-based “exchanges” that will replace today’s small group and individual markets for health insurance.

 

Exchanges

 

ObamaCare creates new entities in every state through which individuals buying insurance on their own must purchase their government-approved insurance. In addition, many small businesses employees will get their insurance through the exchanges as well because their employers will not offer coverage to their workers under ObamaCare’s rules for employer participation (see “Employer Mandate”).

 

Premium Subsidies

 

Households with incomes below 400 percent and above 133 percent of the federal poverty line (FPL) who are enrolled in insurance plans offered through the exchanges are eligible for premium assistance financed by the federal government (Medicaid will cover families with incomes below 133 percent of FPL). In 2010, the FPL is $22,050 for family of four. The new law establishes a sliding scale of assistance based on limitations on required family contributions to the cost of coverage. For instance, at 150 percent of FPL in 2014, ObamaCare limits the amount that such households must contribute toward their health insurance premium to 4 percent of their annual income. At 400 percent of the FPL, households must contribute 9.5 percent of their income toward insurance premiums. Whatever portion of the total health insurance premium for their coverage is not paid by these households is covered by the new federal premium assistance program.

 

Estimated Federal Costs and the “Firewall”

 

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that this new premium assistance program will cost $113 billion annually by 2019, with premium assistance going to an additional 19 million Americans (the Medicaid expansion will add 16 million new people to the program at a cost of $97 billion in 2017).

 

This CBO estimate of the cost of premium assistance assumes that tens of millions of otherwise eligible households will not be eligible for this new entitlement because (READ THE REST Exchanges & Premium Subsidies; By ObamaCare Watch – Part of e21)

GOP Nomination for President Part One


Dialogue between Adam and John Houk

Edited by John R. Houk

© May 10, 2011

 

This is part one of an interchange between my son Adam Houk and myself that began as thoughts on the acceptability of Mitt Romney being the GOP nominee for the 2012 election against President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Along the way the discussion merged with thoughts on the filter Christians should be using with their American right to vote.

 

****************************

 

Adam:

 

Subject: Mitt Romney

 

I have noticed in my readings that this is the leading candidate to make the Republican Party ticket so I went on to read about his political views. After this I was very disappointed and came to the conclusion that I would rather put a write in for the presidential candidate than vote for this guy and I will do a write in instead of voting for him.  In hopes of not being forced to do this I thought I would send you 2 an email in hopes that you could spread the information in order to vote for someone better in the primaries.  Here are the reprehensible views of why I would rather vote for someone else.  Here is some info I have found on Wikipedia.

 

“I am pro-life. I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother. “

 

A baby is a baby no matter how it is created whether it was incest or rape and should never be destroyed.  It even gets much worse than this as I have found and will show.

 

Romney was photographed attending a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in 1994, and his wife made a $150 contribution to the organization.

 

It is my opinion that anyone that donates to Planned Parenthood supports their racist views and their driven need to abort babies.

 

In a 1994 debate with Senator Kennedy, Romney said that abortion should be legal, declaring that “regardless of one’s beliefs about choice, you would hope it would be safe and legal.”

 

And more Statements by Romney

 

“I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years, that we should sustain and support it, and I sustain and support that law, and the right of a woman to make that choice, and my personal beliefs, like the personal beliefs of other people, should not be brought into a political campaign.”

 

And another statement by Romney when accused of being multi-choice

 

“I have my own beliefs, and those beliefs are very dear to me. One of them is that I do not impose my beliefs on other people. “

 

The last statement is the same as saying I don’t believe one human being should murder another but I have no right to impose my beliefs on someone else so murder should be legal.  It is ridiculous.  I in no way believe that Romney would ever sign anything into law that would protect the innocent life of the unborn.  This is not a pro-life stance at all but pro-choice.

 

Help us get a better candidate to vote for.

Subject: RE: Mitt Romney

 

Yes Mitt Romney is what is known as a Republican in Name Only (RINO). Personally I doubt he will win the Republican nomination for two reasons. The primary reason is that Romney as Governor of Massachusetts set up a mandated healthcare system in his State. With a majority of Americans showing that Obamacare is not favorable I doubt Republicans will place the man who invented Romneycare will win the nomination. The secondary reason is the power of the Christian Right. You see Romney is a Mormon. Mormonism is regarded as a cult spinoff of Christianity that does not believe Jesus is coequal with the Father. In fact Mormons believe that Jesus was a created being along with Lucifer, thus making Lucifer out as Jesus’ brother. Lucifer erred in his ways and became Satan. Mormonism is a kind of battle between good and evil in the Gnostic sense.

 

On the other hand, if Romney does pull an upset and win the nomination I will vote for him. Trust me he will be the lesser of two evils in which President Barack Hussein Obama is an uber-evil American Leftist. Obama must be voted out so he does not have another four years of transforming America into the Leftist vision of a socialist utopia.

 

Adam:

 

Subject: RE: Mitt Romney

 

I’m done voting for the lesser of 2 evils.  If we cannot put a righteous candidate up for election we deserve our fate.  I will only vote for a candidate that is holding with God’s principles.  Ask yourself this would God vote for the lesser of 2 evils, no God would give us up to our evil ways and let us destroy ourselves and start judgment as he did with Israel.  I send this email out in order to avoid having Romney as the Republican Candidate, but if this fails I will try and popularize a write in President. This is a possible win.  Just look at Alaska, they did it.

 

It is time we draw the line.  Until we stand up for beliefs wholeheartedly and replace this congregation of corrupt politicians we aren’t ever going to be able to turn our country back to God.  It is time we proclaim the word of God openly and everywhere publicly as God has told us when he told us to go into the world to seek and save the lost.

 

John:

 

Subject: RE: Mitt Romney

 

Don’t get mad because I disagree with you. The last time I voted for the righteous cause instead of the lesser of two evils, President Slick Willie Clinton became President. The Republican was incumbent George G.W. Bush (aka Bush 1). The Dem of course was Clinton. I voted for third Party candidate Ross Perot who had the righteous cause back then. I distrusted Bush 1 because of his involvement with Watergate and a questionable CIA stint. I knew Clinton would be a Leftist politically and anti-Social Values. I loved Perot. So did many others. The reality though was Perot siphoned off Conservative voters that allowed Clinton to squeak out a win. The evil Clinton went to be so popular with the voters he was reelected, then impeached and then received a not-guilty from 40 Dem Senators and enough Republicans to score that victory for Clinton (I am uncertain but I think it was 12 Republicans).

 

I cannot allow my conscience to be responsible for helping Barack Hussein Obama win a 2nd term. Regardless though, as the nominee selection process narrows done to a winner, I doubt that it will be Mitt Romney. He was the favorite for awhile for the nomination in 2008 as well. He ended finishing behind Huckabee and the eventual winner John McCain.

 

Adam:

 

Subject: RE: Mitt Romney

 

I’m not mad, but I am frustrated.  I think you place the responsibility on the wrong person/people.  It is not the fault of those that voted for Ross Perot that Clinton was elected but those of evil and ignorant hearts that voted for Clinton.  God’s path is a narrow and most will choose the wide gate.  To choose the path of a lesser of 2 evils is still that evil.  There are many paths to evil but only 1 path to God.  Until the Christian community overwhelmingly stands up for what it believes in we will not be heard.  Did the apostles listen when they were told not to preach in the name of Jesus on the streets of Jerusalem?  They said they had to do what God had in store for them to do.  If any one candidate has major policies that are incredibly out of line with God’s word, we as Christians have a duty to communicate with each other and pick a candidate that is within the Word of God and write them in.  We cannot compromise when it comes to the word of God.  That which you feed will grow.  Even if we feed sin ever so minor it is a seed that can grow and it has grown abundantly in our country.  It is time we kick out the compromising population of politics and put in place candidates that are bold and will hold their ground.  Only then can we turn America around politically.  Of course this won’t happen until we start turning America around at the base level, with the people. 

 

As I said before if we can’t put forth a candidate that is in holding with God’s word then we deserve our fate as a nation, and as Habakkuk said as he cried out to the lord about why he hasn’t judged Israel for its wickedness “for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgement proceedeth.” 

 

And like in his day, we here in the latter days are starting to experience the birthing pains of this world as the wrath of God is upon us.  If we cannot turn this nation around now by standing for God, our country will then be consumed as the rest the world.

 

Revelations 3:15-16

 

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.

RE: Mitt Romney

 

Adam your stick-to-it-ness is quite admirable. You are correct in one thing, people get what they deserve. Whatsoever is sown is that which is reaped. Consider this though:

 

1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, (I Tim. 2: 1-6 NKJV)

 

In these days of libertinism it is up to the Believers to pray for those in authority. As ghastly as it sounds this even means President Obama as he is in the Office of President. Nonetheless, if the majority of Republicans miss it on the best nominee to replace Obama with, it is up to you, me and other Believers to pray for Mitt Romney.  If Romney is the too wrong for the Office of President, the Father will allow Obama to be reelected as the just deserts to those who miss the prompting of the Holy Spirit. I am guessing Romney if selected would be God’s choice much like the likes of Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus and Ahasuerus (aka Xerxes) were choices of God as instruments of God’s will toward bringing His Chosen People back to repentance.

 

1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. (Rom. 13: 1-3 NKJV)

 

Even many of the Righteous Kings of Israel and Judah had sin in their life but were still used as instruments of God, especially the big dog of Jesus’ human bloodline King David. David had a problem with lust and so did the wing ding with another man’s wife – adultery. Then David attempted to cover-up his adultery by having Bathsheba’s husband come home from war so that he would have conjugal relations to cover David’s impregnation of Bathsheba. Then when that failed, David had Uriah the husband sent back to the battle line with instructions for Uriah to hand to General Joab. The instructions were to order Uriah to lead the frontline of an offense which ended as David had hoped with Uriah’s death – murder.

 

Again I have to make the point I would be very surprised in this climate of the Tea Party Movement that a Republican with a mixed bag of politics to offer as his bona fides would win the Republican nomination. My mind could change but my support currently is in the hope that Sarah Palin will run for President. She espouses both fiscal and Biblical values (growing up in the Pentecostal Assembly of God in Alaska) in the Conservatism she has to offer. As realist though I am sad to say Palin does not hold broad Republican support even though she was instrumental in getting many long shot Republicans elected that were Tea Partiers as well as making long shots make a close run even though the long shots barely lost.

 

Where am I going here? I am going with it is more important for Believers to pray than it is to vote even though there is also a responsibility to vote. In praying for those in authority we need to pray for the best candidate to win nominations and to win the political Offices so that whatever the will of God is, we as Christians may live a peaceable and fruitful life in Christ.
