History Unfolding

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening.  I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years.. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us?  Who asked for it?  Who authorized it?  I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy.. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity.. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in  California  over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) – the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.  It is potentially 1929 x  ten…and we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla ,  Alaska  ..  All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.)

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: CHANGE.  Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life.  In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure.  Change is indeed coming.  And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning..

As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s.  In those times, the “savior” was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory.  Conservative “losers” read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did – regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand – the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so.  No Jews of course,

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex.. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world. He did it with a compliant media – did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . .CHANGE And the people surely got what they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It’s all there in the history books.

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in  England  (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that  Germany  was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe .  It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.  All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust);  I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence.  No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both.  To some degree, perhaps I am.  But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong.  I do not think I am.  Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

McChrystal Affair

Looks like in addition to the firing of Gen McChrystal the Obama administration is looking to replace the civilian leadership support team if they cannot develop a working relationship with Petraeus. It should be noted that Obama hand picked McChrystal, (who is beyond qualified) to run the Afgan insurgence, and the events of the last two weeks show that not unlike the general population, Obamas insiders have little respect for the detached President.

Second to pick Petraeus to run the operation can be seen as a double edged sword. Petraeus is highly suspected to run for the Republican nomination in 2012, and has clashed with Obama and the Democratic party in the past, if it were not for the fact that few individuals have the ability or are dumb enough to take on the Afgan push shows that the administration has painted itself in yet another un-winnable corner.

Financial Reform

Financial reform being one of many causes in the Obama arsenal took a step forward with it’s slim passage this week.  Conspiciously absent from the bill is addressing Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, two of the left’s sacred cows and the singular cause for our economic downfall.  The Obama administration continues to brush over and ignore the plight of the two debt creation giants.  Both Dodd and Frank, Fannie and Freddys ardent supporters, talk of the need of financial reform and lay blame on “the greed of Wall Street” totally ignoring the huge white elephants that will continue to cost the US taxpayer for years to come.  It should be noted, more than sufficient regulation was in place to avoid the housing crisis that was created by the Clinton administration when the decision was made to open up lending to “under-served” segments of the population, but it was ignored, unattached, and just plain in the pocket of the Democratic administrations of past, present and future.  Experts who have reviewed the bill are consistent in the argument that by creating additional levels of oversight, commissions, and increased liability for Wall Street and the secondary mortgage market will only result in the costs of such regulation being passed on to the consumer via higher interest rates and fees.  Complete and utter political window dressing that John Q Public will end of bearing the brunt.

G20

This weeks meeting of the G20 with the goal of the continued Keynesian stimulus model was less than a success, the EU and other members are headed the other direction.  Obama is pushing additional spending to create a short term bump is being seen as short sighted and politically motivated.  Obamas economy is his largest problem, coupled with unemployment and his ardent support of “public” employees while jobless claims continue to rise is political suicide for the current leadership.  Obamas efforts have been labeled as shallow and do not cover the fact that economic growth in the government sector is no substitute to the creation in public sector jobs.  When the growth of the government sector is reviewed, along with the massive pension funds and cushy retirement plans paying 100 Cents on a dollar plus benefits it become apparent the best careers are now based in the government sector, which is based on support rather than growth of the economy.  If this growth continues the outcome will bankrupt and bury the nation to such a level that total collapse is not out of the question.

Oil Spill

Yet another week has gone by without any tangible results being achieved.   With the focus on the spewing well, and the political ramifications of the crisis response, an unknown possibility is gaining little traction in the press.  Via scientific reports that are readily available on the web from validated sources is hinting at a much larger issue with the spill.  It has been shown that methane hydrate a common byproduct of deep well drilling was not only the cause of the explosion but also the reason that the well might NEVER be tapped!  It has been estimated that the pressure at the well head is in the area of 50000-100000 pounds per square inch, if this revelation is deemed true, no current technology is available to withstand that pressure levels, ie; the leaking at the well head has been created on purpose to avoid the coupling from shooting off if the seal were oil tight.  Secondly and not beyond practical science and deduction, the amount of methane in the oil deposits tapped into by BP is massive.  The concern being when the well was tapped the potential for a massive release of methane in the form of a bubble estimated to in the trillions of tons range could occur.  If this were to happen, end of days scenarios are completely valid, for all of us residing in the state of Florida the possibility of a tidal wave of 100 meters due to the “sudden” release of the trapped methane would completely cover the state killing millions, fun stuff huh.  Secondly, as anyone knows, methane is highly explosive, and the resulting explosions given the size and volume of the deposit, is being linked to the dinosaur extinction where 95% of all life was eliminated.  It is simple to understand why these “remote” but plausible scenarios are not being covered, but are a distinct possibility.

Political Climate

As Moonbat Patrol predicted last year at this time the political process and its leadership has fragmented.  With the elevation of the Tea Party, Obamas performance, and stand back politics of the Republican party no majority is in control of our nation, this is a problem.  Republicans are expected to gain sufficient seats to quell the massive spending of the Obama administration but elicit no plan going forward other than blocking Obamas spending efforts.  The Tea Party although powerful is devoid of a core platform that differs from the Republican platform, (no spending, no socialized HC, ect), Democrats except for the far left which consists of radical liberal element are estimated to be in the range of 20-30% of the overall constituency, so fragmentation and placation to other groups is stagnating the political process.

The primary issue with this stagnation is that in reality 20-30% of our constituency is running the country and will continue to do so until the playing field is leveled.  This radical left agenda cares little for the republic process, and demands socialization of many of the systems and programs that built the success of the United States all of which place the responsibility and burden on government to carry.  Not unlike the free market greed and excess we have experienced over the past 50 years the socialization process is rooted in power, greed and corruption but now its justified as spreading the wealth for the good of the people!  Neither is good, focused on the well being and wealth of the people, or altruistic in nature, just a shift from unsustainable free market economic growth to one of unsustainable government growth and responsibility.

With no endgame in site, the coming months and years are going to be entertaining in observing the political jockeying and mudslinging, but one fact is certain until both sides meet in the middle, this school yard brawl could end up killing us all, as past history has shown, we are a nation that always has stepped up to the challenge, my hope is we can continue that history in so much as we will have one for our children to study.

Anyone have a syllabus?   One issue is clear, President Obama is frustrated and true to form and without forethought Ploofe, and Obamas speechwriters penned a very lackluster State Of The Union Speech.  I will give Ploofe credit, you could hardly see the puppet strings last night.

In the Presidents first SOTU speech a grand missed opportunity became evident once Obama turned rabid, rather than bend to the will of the people, the Obama demagoguery was the tact taken.  Oh there were small apologies but none specific,  what was specific is Obama see’s his actions as true and correct, some might say, pathological.

First he attacked the Supreme Court sitting not 30 feet from the lectern, so inflamed was Obama that he is creating an “executive order” in an effort to circumvent the courts decision.  Second, and thoughtfully so, Obama began to castigate his own party, literally calling them out as cowards, IE; “run for the hills” comes to mind.  Not to be left out, Obamas ire and sarcasm was unleashed on the Republican party of whom for all intent and purpose he called “obstructionist”, and created problems HE faces when he walked in the door?

Then came the sing song Southern Preacher in an effort to rise the level of emotion, the bland stories about little Jimmy in Two Egg Florida who can’t get health care.  The obligatory, “our country has faced tough times before” angle, then when the crowd was his, (in his mind) Obama promised to fight for us the American public. Suggestion, how about listening to the American public first!

The great orator has lost touch, in fact, the great orator has lost his audience of Independents, moderate Democrats, and last but not least, the impressionable youth.  Times are tough when you loose the trust of the people, and in reality President Obama has no one to blame but himself.  Rather than doing the right thing, Obama has choose to ignore the voice of the people, and with the ample assistance of Rham Emanual Chief Of Pit Bull’s they have severely overplayed their hand by leveraging the economic crisis to implement their BIG GOVERNMENT pie in the sky plan for recovery.

Not once did Obama apologize or direct blame for the current economic crisis on his own party who has been in control of the purse strings since 2006, or the runaway budget deficits created by HIS stimulus plan, he also failed to mention that the current housing crisis started with Bill Clinton and John Podesta, and was ushered past any semblance of pragmatic governance by Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Rham Emanual, and a litany of other Democrats attempting to protect their disenfranchised voting base.

No President Obama went into full campaign mode last night, and expect much more of the same now that Plouffe is back in the fray.  This is where this administration finds its center, attack everyone and everything, then state you have a better way, but offer nothing but worn out shallow promises of change, when what our country really needs is a clearly defined platform with bipartisan support.

Our nation is being held hostage by Obama’s narcissistic rage, which is the root cause of the Presidents passive-aggressive attacks directed at anyone who questions his intellect.  Our country deserves more, and I will say our country demands more of our elected leadership, to offer any less, is a betrayal to the citizens of this great nation.  Time to lead, follow or get out of the way Mr. President, ego be dammed.

Obama’s most useful tool in the 2008 election was to paint his image as the savior and leader of the emerging populist movement, Scott Brown and the Supreme Court put a severe dent in that image last week, so much so that Obama has enlisted the services of David Plouffe Obamas former campaign manager to re-spin and fortify Obamas convoluted message to the masses.

Clearly Obamas strategy to take advantage of the current economic crisis to push the Democrats social leaning, big government, spread the wealth policies is leaking water like a sieve. Bring in Plouffe, the Pied Piper and media mastermind in the 2008 election who was charged with leading a virtual unknown to the Office of President by pushing a populist platform has been given the reins in the effort to regain that “Obama magic” seen in the last election.

Plouffe’s efforts will have to contend with the “controversial” Supreme Court decision last week opening up the flood gates to corporate spending in political campaigns, which actually is a brilliant move to add balance back to the political process. Although this move was seen by most politicians as judicial activism by a conservative court, the byproduct of this move will place the power of the electorate in the hands of the very companies Obama and his team attack publicly but look to for support behind closed doors, IE; the elite bankers and Wall Street financiers.

If you thought the Obama administration was in campaign mode before, prepare yourself for an all out media attack directed at the painted and perceived demons of a free society, the money changers. Although this tact was highly successful in the 2008 election where Obamas ideology and “Uber Liberal” beliefs were unknown, the task will be practically insurmountable now that the constituency has seen the real Obama.

Obamas expected shift to jobs and employment will surely be the foundation of his State Of The Union speech, but also pay close attention to who Obamas speech writers are attacking, will Obama shift to the middle with fiscal restraint and a workable jobs program, or will Obama continue to push the social agenda of health care, cap and trade and financial reform at his own demise.

The choices are clear on which direction this country needs to go, the question is will Obama concede to the masses, or continue to forge ahead in his egocentric quest for his page in history? This quote sums up the Obama administration to date “You can’t change a pig into a race horse, but you can have a very fast pig”, clearly Obama is not a “race horse”, the question is can he be a “very fast pig”? That question will be answered in part this week, but given past history I see pork chops in the future, pass the barbecue sauce please.

Considering the Democratic loss in Massachusetts which is considered the bastion of Democratic ideology you would think Obama and his handlers would give more than lip service to the media about their current negative tact and direction.

Initial finger-pointing was directed at Coakley where the Obama brain trust used every adjective possible to distance themselves from the dramatic loss of “Ted Kennedys” seat, but wait their always is George Bush and the last eight year drama they can leverage!

In the usual highly scripted Obama response the same sing songy Obama style language was directed at “the mess we inherited”, where blame or abdication thereof was placed firmly on the door step of the Bush administration, only this time the tread has fallen off the track.

Two times Obama has been inserted at the last moment to save the day, it happened in NJ and now MA, but Obama’s eloquent power of words and actions do not meet, he is asking voters to trust him, then in the same breath he projects blame to the past administration shunning all responsibility. By taking this approach Obama continues to insult the intelligence of the American public, and cement the glaring fact that leadership is not his strong suit.

Victor Davis Hanson is dead on when he states “I believe President Clinton provided some crucial insight when he said, “people would rather be with someone who is strong and wrong than weak and right.” It’s not that people are uninterested in who’s right or wrong, it’s that people will only follow leaders who seem to actually believe in what they are doing. Democrats have missed this essential fact”

Hanson goes on to state about Obama’s style “A technocracy – many Ivy-League-educated and without much experience outside academia and government – pushes legislation most people do not want but is nevertheless judged to be good for them.”

Clearly a detached elitist view when people are treated as ignorant children to be told what is correct and that they should be glad that Obama’s “benevolent guidance” is being offered, also to accept Obamas efforts because they are what Obama chose to pursue and are good for the people regardless of what those very same people may think!

Continuing on the elite theme, and like all great “Utopian kings” they exempt themselves from their own laws, all hail the King!

In a continued effort to focus on past mistakes or the perceived weakness of the Bush years, Obama has directed his negative hit machine on the bank bailouts, along with the evil Wall Street bankers. It is important to note Obama, Gethner, and Summers all bought into TARP with Obama signing the bill while he was still a Senator, so more of the same double speak when the rubber hits the road from this administration.

Both JFK and Clinton faced the same challenges in their first year, both were able to adapt and thrive, for all intent and purpose Obama should be able to do the same. But as of today Obama’s efforts are beginning to resemble the old adage, “he is just a one trick pony”, we have three more years to figure that one out, but the ponies feed bag has become one vote short of a meal, and this will make Obama’s “change we can believe in” all that more difficult, anyone know what time the Bush re-runs are on?

Who better than Dickie Durbin, the consigilari of the Chicago body politic to propose “the Senate could make changes to the bill by using the nuclear option, known formally as “reconciliation,” a tactic that would allow Democrats to adjust parts of health care reform with just a 51-vote majority”.

Although this tact has been rumored in the past, floating the balloon today to proceed in such a manner makes two very clear points, first, Coakley being DOA after tonight’s loss, the party seems more focused on who to blame.

Second, if it was not clear before the Brown/Coakley election it is crystal clear now that the health care bills passing, (note I did not say success) is the Democratic keystone in the bridge of sighs of their social engineering platform. Never mind the economy, unemployment, or something simple as “doing the right thing”, ObamaCare is the priority even at the height of the worst recession in recorded history.

After being second fiddle for the most of the last 20 years has the Democrats eager to show how well they can spread the wealth, granted the Bush regime ran up 1.2 trillion in eight years, but the new leader in the pork and waste department is, drum roll please, number one, Barack Obama, number two, Nancy Pelosi, and a close third Harry Reid.

This trilogy of spendocrats have managed to; kill any economic recovery by, not addressing the housing crisis, you can thank Rham, Timmy, Barney, and Chris for leveraging that one, enter Nanny Pelosi and her tyrannical hold on the House, passed the stimulus package, passing health care with a public option, and as of today a new 135 trillion education bill, government is growing the economy isn’t.

With Brown taking the election tonight, prepare for some serious down and dirty Chicago politics from Obama and krew. The style that worked in the past while the country was at the height of the Obama euphoria, has grown callow. The words though delivered well, carry no weight, the leadership behind the man has become much to secret and dark, trust has vanished, and if the trend continues who will pay for these mistakes in judgment?

Tonight just might be the start of a grand cascade of fallen Democrats and liberal Republicans, the country seeking a cause has congregated in the center where their frustration grows waiting for a leader to appear. 2010 just might be, “the new American revolution”, many losses loom on the horizon that will effect the very core of both parties, I have hope for that change.

It was reported by Johna Goldberg this morning that Newsweek  Magazine has enlisted the services of President Obama to write a piece on the current tragedy in Haiti. Although a noble cause, and truth be told Obama will have one of his staffers write the piece, this request is further evidence of the blurring of the lines between the press and the political process.

Also of note is the fact that in the past Newsweek has had a rather aggressive tilt in their coverage of Obama and his administration. The question that comes to mind is; why not just issue a press release which is normal SOP in cases similar to Haiti’s tragedy. Considering this point, the next viable question is what is the motive or payoff for the exclusive scoop to Newsweek?

Payoff:  Newsweek is one of Obama’s top supporters,  they have kowtowed and idolized Obama from the beginning, the bill is now being called due now that  Newsweeks redesign and change of  focus is coming out of the gate.  They need a home run to pull this off, what better way than to plaster Obama’s face on their newly redesigned rag.

Motivation:  All kidding aside, Obama loves Obama, no mirror is safe, I can see the Prez in 20 years (living in exile) paging through all the covers he garnered while in office, the man is a narcissist plain and simple.

Not to dilute the crisis in Haiti, but this is not the best use of office to be pandering to the media, I don’t think the subscription rate in Haiti will increase due to this article, and by now becoming Author In Chief it further degrades the office of President.

Now if I can only find that recipe  piece by Lincoln, or was that FDR, no Trueman, I am making the President some humble pie!

Much has been said about the potential losses the  Democratic party will face in the 2010, what has not been addressed is who or what party will reap the perceived benefit of these losses.

With the Tea Party stumbling out of the gate, the lack of solidified Republican platform, the Democrats abysmal polling numbers and least we forget the independents, 2010 could ultimately result in the increased marginalization of all four platforms.

Obama currently garners an estimated 30-35% of the lefts support regardless of issue, call it blind ambition, Republicans continue to struggle with similar polling numbers, Independents are leaning right, the Tea Party movement is in its infant stage, so as they say in football, time to throw the hail Mary, and although political opportunity abounds, so do the associated risks, read on.

Given the above scenarios along with an increase in each of the platforms protectionism to assure it’s ideological growth the potential for stagnation and inability to proffer any useful legislation will surely follow.  This fractionating of the former two party system into what appears to be four distinct groups is dangerous in that no clear consensus can be obtained when one is so sorely needed.

The current and proposed infighting for top billing will assuredly result in the increase of the benign grandiose promises politicians have become so caviler at issuing but not keeping as of late. With the end result of increasing the ruminating displeasure toward our elected officials which is dangerously at an all time high. While this process is an integral part of the form and function of a free republic, the answer on who will reign supreme is a story yet to be told. This fight for supremacy will surely leave copious amounts of blood on the battlefield further dividing our country when a unification of purpose is what is required.

What spoils remain for the winner along with it’s direction will make life interesting far into the approaching decade, and from a personal perspective none of the four competing factions have jumped to the forefront with any brilliant ideas or suggestions, nor statesman like leadership.

Obama was correct in that our government needs “fundamental change”, but not to the bloated, special interest driven, increased socialization of the political machine that now exists.  For now until our proposed hero reaches that Valhalla, the highest use we the citizens of the United States can perform is to be ever vigilant, and involved in the process.

Lastly, we as a nation have dropped the proverbial ball over the last 30-40 years in that our apathy and acceptance of our elected officials has not been in our best interest. This nescient approach has led us to the conundrum we all now face, our saving grace is that history will show the American people possess unlimited resolve when their freedoms are vetoed by the very same elected officials we entrusted.

To use a highly worn out metaphor our Republic is facing “a defining moment” it is up to each of us to become part of that definition, that my fellow Americans is the only platform that matters!
