GOP and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) Protect Domestic Neo-Nazi Groups

But when, in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security reported that white supremacy is the US’s biggest threat for domestic terror, it was met with harsh criticism. Conservatives blasted the department for defining terror threats too broadly, instead of focusing on potential Islamic terrorists. Then-House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) was one of those who berated DHS, saying that they weren’t focusing on the real threats the US faces:

"[T]he Secretary of Homeland Security owes the American people an explanation for why she has abandoned using the term ‘terrorist’ to describe those, such as al Qaeda, who are plotting overseas to kill innocent Americans,while her own Department is using the same term to describe American citizens who disagree with the direction Washington Democrats are taking our nation. Everyone agrees that the Department should be focused on protecting America, but using such broad-based generalizations about the American people is simply outrageous."

The report was titled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” and it named white supremacists, radical anti-abortionists, and a few “disgruntled veterans” as most susceptible to recruitment by extremist groups, or to harboring resentment that may lead to domestic terrorism. DHS stressed that, during recessions, these threats go up, and law enforcement should be on the lookout for such extremism:

"DHS/I&A has concluded that white supremacist lone wolves pose the most significant domestic terrorist threat because of their low profile and autonomy—separate from any formalized group—which hampers warning efforts..[...]

Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities."

The report’s findings were congruous with previous studies that indicate right wing extremism is responsible for more instances of violence every year (with the exception of 2001, when the September 11th attacks happened) in the United States than Islamic extremist. It also tracks withthe rise of hate groups in the US since 2000.

Sec. Janet Napolitano ended up withdrawing the report and apologizing to veterans who felt they’d been called out, stressing that the threat was limited to a very small number of veterans.

Page, the Sikh temple shooter, was one of these veterans. According to Oak Creek, Wisconsin law enforcement, he served in the army from 1992 to 1998. He was administratively dischargedin 1998, and had a known “patterns of misconduct.” After leaving the service, he was arrested twice, once for a DUI and once for criminal mischief — both in the 1990s.

The gunman had also been tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center for around a decadebecause of his ties to white supremacy groups. While he apparently “popped up” on the FBI’s radar about six years ago, it seems they had no active investigation.

Tea Party Group Jokes About Beating Obama To Death By Igor Volsky on Aug 6, 2012

A local tea party group in Pennsylvania called Northeast Pennsylvania Spirit of 1776 is sending out an email alert in which it imagines the Founding Fathers beating up President Obama in Heaven for being a “radical, socialist leader”:

ThinkProgress spoke with a member of the group, who confirmed that the organization sent out the mailing to its members. She explained that the missive was funny because it’s predicated on the notion that Obama “may be a Muslim.” NEPA Spirit Of 1776 appears to be an independent group that does not endorse candidates and is not aligned with the Republican party.

The Republicans are engaged in a very sophisticated propaganda campaign against the American people. “Orthopraxy” is “an action that in itself, and not because of the value judgments of the person who is acting, leads directly to a goal, which for the individual is not a conscious and intentional objective to be attained, but which is considered such by the propagandist. The propagandist knows what objective should be sought and what action should be accomplished, and he maneuvers the instrument that will secure precisely this action. (Ellul, Propaganda, page. 27.)”

To view propaganda as still being what it was in 1850 is to cling to an obsolete concept of man and of the means to influence him; it is to condemn oneself to understand nothing about modern propaganda. The aim of modern propaganda is no longer to modify ideas, but to provoke action. It is no longer to change adherence to a doctrine, but to make the individual cling irrationally to a process of action. It is no longer to lead to a choice, but to loosen the reflexes. It is no longer to transform an opinion, but to arouse an active and mythical belief...only action is of concern to modern propaganda for its aim is to precipitate an individual’s action, with maximum effectiveness and economy.7

Footnote 7: When one analyzes the great modern systems of propaganda one always finds this primary aim of producing action, of mobilizing the individual. Occasionally it is expressly stated, as when Goebbels distinguished between Haltung (behavior) and Stimmung (morale). But the former is of greater importance. After a bloody raid Goebbles could state; “The Stimmung is quite low but that means little; the Hultung holds well.” The Stimmung is volatile and varies readily; therefore, above all, the right action must be obtained, the right behavior maintained. In the analysis of propaganda, specialists have especially noted this desire to obtain immediate action rather than change of opinion...This passive participation is what Goebbles meant when he said, “I conceive of a radio program that will make each listener participate in the events of the nation.” But at the same time the listener is forced into passivity by the dictator. ( Ellul, Jacques.Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes, Trans. Konrad Kellen and Jean Lerner. New York: Knopf, 1966. 25-26.)

BBC: Banking With Hitler and Banker (Chase) Asset Stripping
It is little known that some American and British banks and businessmen continued to do business with the Third Reich, even benefiting from slave labor and the victims of the Holocaust, while the war raged.
If you do not believe that this same mentality, and these same kind of people doing the same things, are at work today, then you may be quite the optimist, or perhaps naive.
Profit has no loyalty and greed has no conscience. And where there is no penalty, few of the nationless oligarchy will be discouraged from participating.

Perhaps they are countering Obama's love affair with the muslims and the muslim brotherhood in particular. It's called creeping sharia.

February 16, 2011
by Anthony Martin

An ex-CIA agent and counter-intelligence expert has revealed in a special report that Barack Obama has quietly appointed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to key posts within the Administration. Dr. Clare Lopez, professor at the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, wrote a policy paper in December of 2009 which details the systematic appointment of Sharia-friendly advocates within the State Department and other government agencies.

For example, the Tehran-born Dr. Vali Nasr was appointed to co-direct Obama foreign policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan. Former Saudi Arabian supplicant Charles Freeman was appointed by Obama to chair the Administration's National Intelligence Council, but withdrew his name when it was revealed he issued a 2-page screed in which he postulated a conspiracy theory claiming he had been 'victimized' by American supporters of Israel. In addition, John Limbert was appointed to direct U.S. policy toward the Islamist regime in Iran. Limbert, who was taken hostage during the Iranian upheaval of the late 70s-early 80s, is an Iranian sympathizer who advocates negotiation with one of the most brutal dictatorships in the world.

While it is true that some of the initial appointees have departed from the Administration, the fix was already in. The Obama Administration is manned by Sharia-friendly appointees who help steer American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Why is this relevant to 2011?

Events which are currently unfolding in the Middle East are a consequence of the behind-the-scenes work of Islamic advocates within the Administration.

According to reports issued by NewsRealBlog, RedState, and LaborUnionReport, secret documents released by Wikileaks indicate that the United States government has been in the process of planning social and political upheaval in the Middle East for at least 2 years--beginning during the waning days of the Bush Administration and continuing under Obama. The goal was to push moderate Muslim dictators out the door in countries such as Egypt, while advocating so-called 'democracy' which would then insure the rise of Muslim Brotherhood-supported Islamists to fill the power-gap.

How would such a grand scheme be accomplished?

The reports expose a consortium of Leftwing organizations, Islamic groups, labor unions, and Obama-friendly corporations which would organize and fund a 'youth movement' in certain areas around the Middle East which would then take to the streets in protest against current governments.

Some of the corporations involved are Google, YouTube, MSNBC, Facebook, National Geographic, M-TV, and Pepsi. In addition, the U.S. State Department, Columbia Law School, and various Islamic extremist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and others are central to the plot.

The goal is to set in motion a domino effect, hoping that regime-change in Eqypt would spread to other nations in the Middle East, and eventually destabilize Europe, and ultimately, the United States.

No sooner had Mubarak been ousted in Eqypt than demands were issued for war with Israel. Egypt's government and Constitution were abolished by the military. The Camp David Accords, which has kept peace between Egypt and Israel since the 1970s, was discarded.

Then, Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi issued a call to the Muslim world to wage war with Israel. There is upheaval in Jordon and Lebannon as well--Israel's closest neighbors.

And while the Obama Administration rushed to jump out in front of the uprising in Egypt to praise its so-called 'push for democracy,' a similar uprising this week in Iran has been met with deafening silence.

Why?

Perhaps some basic facts will provide clues.

Obama's top national security advisor declared that the Muslim Brotherhood is a 'secular' organization, non-extremist, and dedicated to 'peace.' Obama himself, in an interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, refused to refer to the Brotherhood as an Islamic extremist organization, in spite of the fact that the group's own charter, and recent statements made by its leadership, indicate exactly that.

And a Muslim board member of CPAC, of all things, declared in a news conference that 'there is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,' despite the fact that the group issued a document in 1991 indicating its North American objectives.

At the very least it is clear that things are not as they seem on the surface in Eqypt, Iran, nor within the Obama Administration and the American Muslim community. And, due to the fact that the mainstream media merely parrots the official Administration propaganda, the American people are being bamboozled.

Mr Martin wrote this article in early 2011. It is obvious, in light of the events that have happened since, that he knows exactly what is happening in the mideast and here in the US.

The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.

An article in the New York Times, April 9, 1944. From Henry A. Wallace, Democracy Reborn (New York, 1944), edited by Russell Lord, p. 259.

In America, German Fascism dazzled many American leaders of capitalist industry. They were William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy JFK’s father), Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon(head of Alcoa, banker, and Secretary of Treasury), DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil (now Exxon), Henry Ford, ITT, Allen Dulles(later head of the CIA), Prescott Bush (don’t forget him), National City Bank, and General Electric.

In October 1938, Lindbergh was presented by Goering, on behalf of the Fuehrer, the Service Cross of the German Eagle for his contributions to aviation.

GM and Ford built nearly 90% of the armored 3-ton half-trucks and 70% of the Nazi medium and heavy-duty trucks used in WWII. Greame K. Howard, Vice President of General Motors, wrote and published “American and a New World Order” and argued that America should cooperate with the Nazis.

Hearst with Nazi officers...bunch of good ol' boys.

The Du Ponts financed the Black Legion that was an American Nazi group that used violence against unions and was connected to the Ku Klux Klan.

Williams Randolph Hearst was a real fan of the Nazi party. Remember those magazine pictures of Hilter’s retreat in Germany. Did you ever wonder how Better Homes and Gardens magazine got those pictures for the 1938 article? Hearst and Hilter were friends!

Thomas J. Watson and the Hollerith number tattoos.

And this is the worst of all. Thomas J. Watson, the head executive of IBM, leased data sorting computers using IBM's Hollerith punch card technology in 1933 to the Nazis enabling them to identify, find, and collect the victims of the Holocaust. Those numbers tattooed on the Jewish prisoners were of the Hollerith numbering system. Adolph Hitler awarded Watson a medal for his contribution! http://www.ibmandtheholocaust.com/

http://dneiwert.blogspot.com/HenryFord.jpg

In 1938 Henry Ford received the Grand Cross of the Order of the German Eagle as a birthday present from Adolph Hitler and Ford refused to return the medal even after the war.

And get this. After the war, Ford and IBM demanded the US government reimburse their companies for the loaned assets destroyed in the war. And we, the American people, paid them! Yeah, you got punked again.

The Nazi party was greatly impressed with American scientists’ study of Eugenics that claimed social ills were the result of genetic inferiority and not social conditions. In 1907 Indiana first legalized forced sterilization of the inferior-- the poor, prisoners, and the mentally ill. The Rockefeller Foundation funded and endorsed eugenics programs. The impression American eugenics had on the Nazis cannot be understated.

More history of how American Corporations overwhelmingly supported, exported material and knowledge, protected Nazi interests during the 1920s.

The Roaring 20s and the Roots of American Fascism

Part 2: Economic Warfare & Traitors in High Places

...Between the cartel agreements of I.G. and the monopolistic behavior of our own robber barons, the Dulles brothers had no shortage of investors willing to invest in Germany. In 1940, Professor Gaetano Salvemini of Harvard was quoted as saying that 100 percent of American big business was sympathetic towards fascism. Corporate America's support for fascism was so great that U.S. Ambassador to Germany William Dodd proclaimed:

"A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy." 21

Americans have never been told the truth about the extent of corporate America's involvement with the Nazis. The media has spoon-fed Americans into believing that only a handful of companies traded with the Nazis. Nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, well over 300 American corporations were arming Nazi Germany during the war in violation of the law.

Many of these corporations took extraordinary steps to maintain communication with their German offices and to conceal their Nazi involvement from the U.S. government. They could have severed all links with Nazi Germany, but instead chose to continue support a regime at war with their own country. In doing so, these corporations became willing accomplices to the Holocaust, traitors to their country and guilty of war crimes. Those responsible for such actions and crimes should have received justice at the end of a hangman's noose. Sadly, none were even charged.

Even the bluest of the "blue chips," IBM, actively sought business with the Nazis during the war. Dehomag, IBM's German subsidiary, supplied the Hollerith machines that played a prominent role in the Holocaust. Without Hollerith machines the efficiency with which the Holocaust was carried out would have been impossible. The roundup of the Jews would have been slowed to a snail's pace by forcing the Nazis to divert additional manpower to the task of locating their Jewish victims. Hollerith machines were located in every concentration camp and were serviced by Dehomag representatives under the full appraisal of the New York office.

The inclusion of IBM provides a look at the mindset of corporate America. Edwin Black's IBM and the Holocaust details the ruthlessness of corporate America in its pursuit of profits. 22 When the Nazis came to power, IBM was under the direction of Thomas Watson, who actively sought out a contract to provide the equipment for the Nazi census.

Up until then, Watson's career had been less than ethically stellar. Watson learned his business skills from John Patterson, the ruthless founder of the National Cash Register (NCR). Watson rose quickly in the ranks of NCR, learning to use frivolous lawsuits against competitors, as well as the threat of lawsuits against competitors' customers. At NCR, Watson was placed in charge of driving out competitors selling used equipment. He quickly adopted the tactics of the robber barons to establish a monopoly by using predatory pricing, threats of lawsuits, bribes and even smashed storefronts. On February 22, 1912, Watson was indicted for criminal conspiracy to restrain trade and found guilty. 23

The criminal behavior and lack of ethics illustrated by Watson's early career was pervasive between the wars. When the Nazis seized power, Watson saw an opportunity to expand in Germany. In the depths of the Great Depression, Watson increased IBM's investment in Germany by nearly a million dollars. Even more gratifying was the secret pact Watson concluded in October, 1933 which gave Dehomag commercial powers beyond the German borders. Previously, all IBM subsidiaries had been confined to a single country. With Dehomag now established as the defacto "IBM Europe," the Nazis were able to conduct statistical services throughout Europe. In effect, Watson had established a cartel much like I.G. Farben's.

In an attempt to justify Watson's, and IBM's dealings with the Nazis, many suggest that Watson was not a fascist, but simply a ruthless businessman. Evidence, however, suggests that if Watson was not a fascist, he was at the very least a great admirer of fascism. At a 1937 sales convention Watson said:

"I want to pay tribute(to the) great leader, Benito Mussolini. I have followed the details of his work very carefully since he assumed leadership. Evidence of his leadership can be seen on all sides. Mussolini is a pioneer…. Italy is going to benefit greatly."26

This is not the only evidence of Watson's support and admiration for fascism. He also had an autographed picture of Mussolini hanging in his living room for years. Watson was quoted saying:

"we should pay tribute to Mussolini for establishing this spirit of loyal support." 26

In a private letter to Reich Economic Minister, Hjalmar Schacht, Watson wrote:

"the necessity of extending a sympathetic understanding to the German people and their aims under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. 26

Watson wrote the letter years after Hitler seized power, and described Nazi aggression toward neighboring countries as a dynamic policy. The letter ended with:

"an expression of my highest esteem for himself (Hitler), his country and his people." 26

While Watson's praise for Hitler and Mussolini do not supply definitive proof that Watson was a fascist, it certainly confirms the conclusion of Harvard professor, Gaetano Salvemini, that corporate America was in sympathy with fascism.

Before the ink was dry on the Treaty of Versailles, American corporations were rushing to invest and support Germany. The first to support what became the Nazi line was Henry Ford. In the early 1920s, Ford began publishing an anti-Semitic newspaper. Ford was also an early financial supporter of Hitler at a time when the Nazis were virtually unknown.

Another early backer of Hitler and the Nazis were the du Ponts. The power behind the du Pont throne in the 1920s was Irenee du Pont who, like Ford, was a supporter of Hitler before he was known outside Munich. Irenee du Pont followed Hitler's career avidly from the early 1920s on. Du Pont representatives traveled to Germany almost immediately after the armistice to renew their alliance with I.G.

In November 1919, mere months after the armistice was signed, representatives of du Pont and the Badische Company, the principal corporate identity of I.G. Farben in Switzerland, worked out a tentative agreement for the organization of a global corporation to exploit the Haber process for ammonia and nitrate production. Du Pont also sought technical help in the dyestuffs industry. Although a complete agreement was never reached on a grand alliance, the relationship between du Pont, Verinigte Koln-Rottweiler Pulverfabriken (VKR) and Dynamit Aktiengesellschaft (DAG) became closer. At one point, du Pont had roughly three million dollars invested directly in I.G. Farben 24

The most notable aspect of the November 1919 meeting and tentative agreement was the lightning speed with which the German cartels reestablished control over the all-important Haber process for ammonia and nitrate production. All parties had a stake in completing the agreement behind closed doors, sincethe very nature of the agreement was in violation of the armistice. For Germany, it meant control over explosives and fertilizer production, freeing the country from dependence on Chilean nitrates. For du Pont, it was a matter of profits. Before WW II, one of the most profitable periods for du Pont was WW I. During that war, du Pont's profits rose to $230,000,000. The profits from the war were used to buy a controlling share of General Motors. 27

On January 1, 1926, an agreement between du Pont, VCR and DAG was consummated, and was similar to the agreement of the same date between du Pont and Imperial Chemical Industries of Britain. This agreement, debated at length in the 1934 Nye Committee hearings, was found unsigned in du Pont files. It was a gentlemen's agreement detailing exchanges of patents and technical information that could be denied if discovered. In defiance of the Treaty of Versailles banning German companies from selling military explosives, the agreement provided a means by which du Pont could sell German produced explosives. The Nye report provides the best summary of the agreement:

"In other words, though German munitions companies cannot sell abroad, American companies can sell for them, and to our own government at that." 25

In effect, the agreement between du Pont, DAG and VCR reestablished the pre-war cartel between du Pont, Koln-Rottweiler Pulverfabriken and the British Nobel Dynamite Trust. Under the pre-war agreement, du Pont agreed not to erect any powder works in Europe, and the other signers agreed not to erect powder works in the United States. Technical information was exchanged among the signatories, and du Pont agreed to inform the others of the quantity, quality and requirements of all powder sales to the United States government. In 1910, the Justice Department found the agreement to be a violation of anti-trust laws, resulting in the breakup of du Pont powder works and the formation of Atlas Powder and Hercules Powder. Within a few years of the 1910 ruling, du Pont reorganized in Delaware because to the state's lax regulations of corporations.

An agreement between du Pont and Dynamit in 1929 controlled the production of tetrazine, a substance for greatly improved ammunition primers. When WWII began in 1939, Remington (controlled by du Pont) received huge British ammunition orders. Because of a clause in the agreement with I.G. Farben the British received an inferior cartridge lacking tetrazine. 34

"Fascism is on the march today in America. Millionaires are marching to the tune. It will come in this country unless a strong defense is set up by all liberal and progressive forces... A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government, and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. Aboard ship a prominent executive of one of America's largest financial corporations told me point blank that if the progressive trend of the Roosevelt administration continued, he would be ready to take definite action to bring fascism to America."

-former U.S. ambassador to Germany William Dodd in 1938

B, the only thing we get for sure is that Obama did not wish to continue the PNAC Fortress Israel, Bomb Iran ideology of the prior regime. The furor about the Islamic Brotherhood is also ideological rather than practical or moral. If you judge all the opponents of the American Petro-Empire and its Cheney Paranoid Projections as likely "terrorists," you will not find anyone other than the traitors to their own countries to work with.

We are not a benign presence in the world. No empire is, and all are evil by nature. We are fooling ourselves, as those earlier empires did as well, to justify our crimes against humanity. The commodification of everything has not worked well for indigenous or artisanal people, who happen to be the key to the future. The delusion that we can price and market everything that makes human life human and keep nature happy at the same time is beyond debate. It is a demonstrable failure and cataclysm.

Americans hear only the AIPAC version of Israel and the Middle East. Taking out Iraq upset all the Sunni/Shiite balances in the region, and everywhere there has been a "European-friendly" elite, the popular revolt will have an "Islamic" component because of the nature of empire and resistance.

What has been amazing has been how little the terror has been "brought home" to "the Homeland." We have not had a series of bombings with any external link. We have not even had an organized movement doing anything. There have been lone wolves and nuts, and there is a culture that encourages the worst. But, there has been no "al Qaeda" or anyone else doing any material damage to America. They just let us do the damage culturally and psychologically to ourselves.

Fear is an amazingly powerful drug when we take it without any antidote. When we are left feeling helpless, overwhelmed and powerless, it is hard not to give in to the shadows. On the other hand, "love" really does work. And so does "the truth." It turns out that if we could find our own humanity, the rest of the world would welcome us back to the human race and we could all work together on the way to share the planet and keep human life human in this world.

Muslims have said they plan on destroying us from the inside and they have an ally in Obama. What he has started in his first term, he will finish in his second, if he gets the chance.

Muslims don't even like Obama. Where do you get all of this crap. Nevermind, dumb question.

Most Arab countries have a less favorable view of America under President Barack Obama than they had at the end of the George W. Bush administration, according to a new report from the Arab American Institute (AAI).

AAI reported that Arab world opinion of the U.S. and President Obama — the man long heralded as the one to heal the wounds that the Bush administration had allegedly inflicted upon the Arab world — has dropped to an all time low.

AAI’s findings stand in stark contrast to the sentiment surrounding Obama’s 2008 election and his “Cairo speech,” which famously doubled Arabs’ favorable attitudes toward the U.S.

Just two years later, five out of six countries surveyed viewed the U.S. less favorably than Turkey, China, France, or even Iran.

Based on the survey, which placed Obama’s favorable ratings across the Arab world at 10% or less, any hope that Obama could improve relations is all but gone.

US President Barack Obama is much more popular in the Muslim world, in compared to his predecessors. Muslim leaders and the press will always avoid criticizing Obama: many Muslims strongly believes that Obama is still in fact a Muslim.

Obama was preparing to meet Iranian President Ahmadinejad; it was already reported in the international media that Obama sent a secret message to the notorious Islamist terror outfit, Hamas.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told Nile TV, "The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim."

I think you are confusing how muslims all around the world, especially in the middle east, view the US as unfavorable. While they view Obama favorably.

I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT MY STRUGGLES
I was born in one country, raised in another.

My father was born in another country.

I was not his only child.

He fathered several children with numerous women.

I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.

My mother died at an early age from cancer.

Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father, not my mother.

Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

My birth records were sketchy.

No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.

It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

I became active in local politics in my 30s. Then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s

They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything

I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history and no experience in leading a single organization.

Yet I was a powerful speaker, and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.

This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy...

I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country.

But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy.

I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

It was the free market, banks and corporations.

I decided to start making citizens hate them; and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

I called mine "A People's Campaign.”

That sounded good to all people.

I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.

I knew that if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world.

So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities."

My true views were not widely known, and I kept them unknown until after I became my nation's leader.

I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.

Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

And then the world learned the truth.

Who am I?

There are literally thousands of people in this country that you could replace the early bio of Hitler's with and they didn't kill millions of people or start a world war. I'll bet Hitler drank coffee and had a dog too. If liberals were that hateful then you would see many e-mails similar to the one above comparing Bush, Reagan, Cheney, etc. to evil men with similar backgrounds. That's the difference from at least the liberals I know personally and the conservatives I know. I've spent more time defending Republicans from the few trashy e-mails I've received over the years putting them in a grossly overdone bad light than I have spent time looking to author some cheapshot BS like the above post.

I was thinking it was you, only you had Karl Rove write it for you. But you don't scare me. Sorry.

The similarites to Obama are striking, whether anybody here will admit it is irrelevent to me. Confirms the adage that "there are none so empty as those who are full of themselves" And that is a liberal.

Damned if I do, or don't tell you to simply kiss my anti-fascist ass.

Actually, Obama is a neo-liberal twit...same as his opponents. Neo-liberalism has nothing to do with liberalism.It's basic principles in economics come from the Chicago School of Economics...the one whose policies when given free reign in Chile had to be maintained by a dictatorship.

Pinochet was overthrown, fled the country, was extradited and put on trial for crimes against humanity...for butchering his own citizens on the behalf of a corporate/financial oligarchy. He died before the trial could be completed. He was a neo-liberal. Same as Dems and Repugnants.

Neo-liberal foreign policy's over-riding concern is making the world conform to what's good for U.S. transnationals and financiers. Dem. Pres. Clinton made a good start in that regard. Bush put it on steroids by adding an overt military arm, Obama maintains the same policies. Outsouring agreements begun under Clinton remain in place....new ones were negotiated by Obama. Ditto the repeal of the Glass-Stegal Act. The repeal remains in place.

The only liberal I know of remaining in Washington's Halls of Government is Bernie Sanders.

Probably the Patriot Act, endorsed by both parties should be repealed. It's nearly a direct copy of the Enabling Act that allowed Hitler to legally seize power in Germany.

Obama isn't a Muslim. That would require him to endorse a law forbidding the collection of interest...something Christians once prohibited. Not likely since his economic advisors are all from Wall Street.

Republicans and Dems both take a cue from Hitler's book,...promising one thing and delivering another.... or haven't you noticed?

Robert Paxton, probably the world's top authority on fascism notes the U.S. is in the 3rd out of 5 stages leading to it. The final two come rather quickly. Both parties have led us to that threshold....the marriage between corporations and the state. It functions through the Shadow Government. Corporate surrogates (lobbying firms) write the laws, legislatures and Congress rubber-stamp them.

As Prof. Sheldon Wollin of Princeton notes, 'they rule without appearing to'.

Sometimes the rubber stamp passes from a Dem to a Repugnant. Sometimes it's the other way around.

Charges of a Muslm in government are the least of my worries.

I can see why Repugants oppose shedding light on far-right groups. After-all, their hero Reagan supported them in South and Central American throughout his entire presidency. They over-threw one elected government after another...at the point of a Reagan-supplied gun. We certainly wouldn't want to discourage them at home, would we?

Brookie, there are none more full of themselves than the ideological cons who try to sell their libertarian nonsense here. There are others who can have a decent conversation, but you have compiled quite a record for drivel by now. Improve or leave. It is not nice to bore others or be a boor.

You just labeled yourself a liberal. I'll be darned.

Polycarp is right about the interest and Sharia. This looks stable and compliant and should be part of anyone's 401K.

"We've assisted in getting the Shari`ah-compliant certification for a couple of the mutual funds that are in Canada right now," Huda said.

"There's one fund - a bullion fund - that's a fairly large fund that has gold, silver, platinum stored here, and it's a purely Shari`ah-compliant fund.

"Since we're heavily in resource and technology-weighted [funds] ... when those do well, the Shari`ah funds generally do well."

Islam forbids Muslims from usury, receiving or paying interest on loans.

Islamic banks and finance institutions cannot receive or provide funds for anything involving alcohol, gambling, pornography, tobacco, weapons or pork.

Shari`ah-compliant financing deals resemble lease-to-own arrangements, layaway plans, joint purchase and sale agreements, or partnerships.

Investors have a right to know how their funds are being used, and the sector is overseen by dedicated supervisory boards as well as the usual national regulatory authorities.

The Shari`ah-compliant system is now being practiced in 50 countries worldwide, making it one of the fastest growing sectors in the global financial industry.

Flourishing Investments

With the growing Muslim population in Canada, the demand for Shari`ah-compliant investments was increasing.

Aside from the weapons and pork the restrictions on banks are like Mormons. Mitt gets mortgage money every month from his lease to own property, like the Sharia method prescribes. Marriot's properties [Mormon] are all owned by a land property holding company so they pay rent not interest. Marriot, Muslim, and Mormon all start with M, be afraid, very afraid.

The Southern Poverty Law center has a neat interactive web site with maps and concentrations of soveign citizen wacko hate groups. WY has 2, and they don't have that many people. VT has 1 which I think is the least. GA, TX, and CA seem to have the most.

Brooks,it sound like you believe in "messiah's". When the message is control,you can get people to believe almost anything. Brooks, it`s getting very hard for the eyes to not see the "big lies"!

It’s Time for Bill O’Reilly to Get Real about White Privilege

It’s time for white America to get real about white privilege. Last night, Bill O’Reilly came from back vacation early to host a special edition of “The Factor”, one that he said would “tell the truth” about what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri.
