Bill Cook: ‘Prophecy’ coming true

Advertisement

To the editor:

Most Americans are familiar with the threat made by the communist dictator Nikita Krushchev in 1956 when he said, “We will bury you.”

But, how many realize he also said, “Your children will live under communism?”

The scary thing is that he was right, and his prophecy is coming true under Barack Obama.

This “child of the 60s” has been steeped in communism since his youth. In fact, he was mentored by ardent communist Frank Marshall Davis while growing up in Hawaii.

Obama’s mother, the late Ann Dunham, was an atheist and she attended a high school that had a communist serving as chairman of its school board. And, a classmate referred to Dunham as a communist “fellow traveler.”

When Barack Obama grew up and entered politics, he launched his career at the home of Bill Ayers, co-founder of the communist Weather Underground.

Obama became a member of the communist “New Party” of Chicago in the 1990s and ran as one of their endorsed candidates.

Since winning the White House, Obama has nationalized private industries, spied on Americans, and smeared patriotic citizens as domestic terrorists, all hallmarks of a communist tyranny.

It is critically important that we, as a nation, wake up to the danger Obama, his agenda and his faction of communist loyalists pose to the United States, and oppose him with all our power.

I oppose all he has done.

Here's Obama, ripping into W for having added $4 trillion to the national debt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kuTG1...

"It's irresponsible! It's unpatriotic!"

Of course, now that BHO has piled more than 3 times that amount onto the deficit; so that for the first time in history, government debt now exceeds GDP, he has nothing to say. Which begs the question: Was BHO lying then, or is he lying now? The answer is obvious: it's the punchline to the age-old joke - how do you know when so-and-so is lying? Easy: whenever his lips move. And that he is determined to put us on the same road to ruin alongside Greece, England, Italy, Portugal, Italy, & Spain, the joke's on us.

Worst. President. Of my lifetime.

We have two totally corrupt political parties in a two party system that creates a federal government which is no more than a plutocratic oligarchy. Just as in the last presidential election, the Electoral College (electors being nominated by those corrupt political parties) will have the choice of the lesser of two evils, an incompetent, bought and paid for oligarch no matter which candidate gets the required amount of electoral votes. Just as in the last election, the new boss will be the same as the old boss, same as it's ever been in this plutocracy.

Show proof....

"Show proof?"

Yes - show the transcript proving that “he also said, "Your children will live under communism”"

"All one needs to do is look at how this country is being run." Is not proof of what was said. So, prove that "he also said, “Your children will live under communism”"

No need to rant about incompetent, corrupt government. That's a burden all men on earth have and will never change in this plutocratic oligarchy...

There is no transcript of the statement because it's "hearsay."

It is beyond me how anyone that claims to be in anyway sane would think that someone who says the system has been corrupted by two corrupt political parties ruling a two party system could possibly see that as a defense of ANYONE in government let alone the President. He is no less a plutocratic oligarch than any of the others. This boss is the same as the old boss and the next boss will continue the plutocracy... Same as it's ever been.

Believe what you will. Go ahead and vote your "conscious," vote for whichever corrupt, incompetent plutocrat you are given by these two corrupt political parties. (the lesser of two evils) You/we don't elect the President, the electors of each state do. Electors nominated by these two corrupt political parties we have. When it comes to Presidential elections, the popular vote doesn't matter, electoral votes do. THAT is in the U.S. Constitution. We do not have a constitutionally protected right to vote. While there are amendments to the U.S. Constitution that prohibit discrimination based on race (15th), sex (19th) and age (26th), no affirmative right to vote exists. Just as Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said about the right of habeas corpus, “The Constitution doesn’t say every individual in the United States or citizen is hereby granted or assured the right of habeas corpus." The Constitution doesn’t say every individual in the United States or citizen is hereby granted or assured the right to vote. Corporations have been given "person-hood" with the ability to pump money into any campaign they want to pump money into, without restriction. The President will always be beholden to those who put him/her in place and it isn't the citizenry of this country. Greed rules, not honesty. Keep waiting for your Lincoln, if he/she doesn't go along with the system as it is now, (not the system as it was THEN) they'll never be nominated. And a third party candidate will never fly. Should a third party candidate happen to gain enough electoral votes to deny the other two the required number of votes needed to be elected, the vote would then go to Congress, a Congress dominated by two corrupt political parties. Evil will prevail, even if it's the lesser of two.... This government/society/civilization WILL eventually fail, as all that have come before it has. To deny that would be to deny history. This is not sheer cynicism but reality.

Dream on, sonny. Dream on.... I'm neither in despair nor am I distraught. My life is good because I make it so, not because of any government or "hope for a better future." Go ahead and pin your "hope" on politicians and government, that will work. Fantasy....get real.

Psalm 146:3 "Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation." "Don't put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there." Put not your trust in princes, politicians and their government - Rely on God rather than on man, however exalted he may be. There is a work of protection and salvation which no man, however exalted he may be, can perform for you; a work which God alone, who is the Maker of all things, and who never dies, can accomplish.

Isn't it pretty obvious there is not a Democratic or Republican party; rather a government run literally by the powers behind Montsanto, Haliburton, the pharmaceutical companies and George Soros to name a few? You can vote all you want, but it is pretty much in complete vain, since the President is in by electoral vote and not popular vote (remember a certain George Bush who technically lost the election to Gore, but somehow became President). It doesn't matter who you vote for or nominate. If the corporations don't want them in, they won't go in. Period! The President is literally nothing but a puppet for a much larger financial backer with very dishonorable intentions. Does the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act on December 31.2011 not give you a huge clue? For those who know nothing about this, it literally gives the government the right to take away all due process of the law and to detain any American citizen they want for however long they want by saying we are terrorists? The Senate passed this 93-7, then the President signed the bill. (How ironic, when it is our own gov't that keeps attacking other nations isn't it?)

***Just wondering: How is Capitalism any better or worse than any other nation's ways? This government was literally created by committing genocide against the Natives here, then using black slaves to build the White House and Chinese slaves for the train tracks; with capitalism literally leading to the complete destruction of the environment & a caste society? Is there a government that could have sustained longer than 200 years of so? Seems like greed has a way of deteriorating any form of government and ours is no different.

ranger520:"I believe in God as well, but the Lord helps those that help themselves. While I do trust that God will look over me and help keep me from harm, it is my responsibility to move forward and do what I can to prevent these terrible things from happening. That is why I vote, take precautions in my everyday life, and don't jump out of perfectly good aircraft."

Sorry but I am not convinced.

Well, we know all about opinions and how everybody has one, FACT is, in THIS republic, you do NOT have a Constitutional right to vote and do NOT elect the President.

This argument is so ridiculous! Obama hasn't been the best president but comparing him to Osama is a bit extreme. If you are still stuck on the ignorant citizenship argument then there is no hope for you anyway. I myself voted for Obama but admitting my mistake I agree he hasn't done much to improve our economic state. In case you forgot, the so-called "politicians" that we put in power have failed us all. It is not one man that failed us but them all. They have all become corrupt by large corporations. It is like buying legislation now. It is sad that people are just now starting to figure it out. We need a revolution and a better system. I am just sick of hearing all these pointless arguments about communism and all these stupid bantering. This country isn't even truly democratic anyway and if proper health care actually did exist then maybe people wouldn't be so inclined to offer a counter-solution. It's not one party versus another and anyone who says otherwise obviously didn't hear about the bill that was voted 93-7 in favor of essentially nullifying our constitutional rights. It is not JUST the president. Blame should be handed around everywhere that it is due and that is our entire government. People need a revolution before it is too late. As far as the upcoming elections, none of the candidates are worth any second look and shouldn't be voted for at all. It not the democrats or the just the repubs! They are both corrupt!!

Your hate for the current president, who is just like the others have been, (Nixon actually had a better universal healthcare plan than the plan just passed) is as evident as your lack of knowledge of how this corrupt system works. Congress is corrupt, democrats are corrupt, republicans are corrupt, the system itself is corrupt. The FDA enables pharmaceutical companies, the SEC enables Wall Street, the FAA enables the airline industry. Government's main objective is to protect government. The Federal Reserve, a non-government entity, tells the Treasury Department what to do and when to do it. Our financial system, our system of credit is concentrated in the Federal Reserve. "The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." We live in an oligarchy, a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few.

["this government is not for of, by and for the people anymore."]

This government has never been "for of, by and for the people" it's been a plutocracy from the start. Wealthy men created it, wealthy men run it, and the Supreme Court has enabled them. A plutocracy, the rule or power of wealth or of the wealthy, a government or state in which the wealthy class rules. What we have is a plutocratic oligarchy called a republic. A republic in which there is no Constitutional right for citizens to vote. A republic in which the Constitution dictates that the president be elected by electors installed by two corrupt political parties in this two party system.

("call and write their elected officials. Tell them how worthless they really are, and that if they expect to get our votes, they need to start doing what we want." )

Apparently you have never called or written to someone who has been elected to office at the Federal level, they only respond with form letters, thanking you for nothing. Only lobbyists are allowed access, the people who they really work for, the people who really write law. Show them the money and you too can gain access to a senator because they need money for re-election, they need to raise over $10,000 a day, from day one, to finance their next election. You can't vote out anyone but those politicians from your state and district. Vote them out and you'll be given another incompetent, corrupt politician from these two corrupt political parties to replace them. Should you happen to be able to get an independent elected, they will be buried by the others. Chairmanships and committee positions go to the favored republicans and democrats. But go ahead and protest to them, unlike the right to vote, the right to petition IS in the Constitution.

("As long as there are people like you living here, then we will not have this country under our control. You can congratulate yourself on being one of the many millions of boobs that allow these things to happen.")

If there weren't people like me living here, who fought to maintain the few rights you DO have, you would be under the control of Germany, Japan or Russia. This government has never been under the control of the citizenry and never will be unless you do something other than complain to corrupt politicians who do absolutely nothing that will not benefit themselves. If you want to do something, support H.J. Res. 28, the proposed amendment to add a right to vote to the U.S. Constitution. Because there is no right to vote in the U.S. Constitution, individual states set their own electoral policies and procedures. This leads to confusing and sometimes contradictory policies regarding ballot design, polling hours, voting equipment, voter registration requirements, and ex-felon voting rights. As a result, our electoral system is divided into 50 states, more than 3,000 counties and approximately 13,000 voting districts, all separate and unequal. The addition of a Right to Vote Amendment to the U.S Constitution would: Guarantee the right of every citizen 18 and over to vote Empower Congress to set national minimum electoral standards for all states to follow. Provide protection against attempts to disenfranchise individual voters. Ensure that every vote cast is counted correctly. Many reforms are needed to solve the electoral problems we continue to experience every election cycle. The first is providing a solid foundation upon which these reforms can be made. This solid foundation is an amendment that clearly protects an affirmative right to vote for every U.S. citizen. And then, work on getting rid of the Electoral College (something else that is NOT in the constitution) and electoral system and really give the electorate a voice in presidential elections. A true democracy.

Who's against the country? It's corrupt government and corrupt politicians that I'm against.

("Yes, we have issues to overcome, but that will not happen by saying there is no hope, no use, no reason to try.")

Do you not think that supporting and working for H.J. Res. 28, the proposed amendment to add a right to vote to the U.S. Constitution. Because there is no right to vote in the U.S. Constitution is not "trying?"

("It will only happen if all of us make a pest of ourselves to our elected officials and make them change the ways they do things.")

You mean like the "occupy" movement? You think you can MAKE our elected officials change? The only power you have is the power of the ballot box, to vote out those congress people you don't like in YOUR district, YOUR state. And the right to do so isn't even in the Constitution. And what of the rest of the system? The corrupt political parties, the "swinging door policy" where as congress people leave office only to become lobbyists. The campaign finance policy of unlimited, unrecorded campaign financial contributions. The SYSTEM is corrupt. Complaining to corrupt politicians won't change that but a good first step in improving the system is insuring the right to vote. Then making campaign financing a public endeavor. Then giving citizens a voice in presidential elections as opposed to these two corrupt political parties having all the say with the electors they put in place. Making this government a true, REAL democracy is a good first step but the entrenched corruption in the SYSTEM will fight it all the way and I'd wager we won't see change for the better anytime soon. Two corrupt political parties in a two party SYSTEM, practicing partisan politics to keep it that way. Partisan politics is much more of a hindrance to better government than a help. Political parties, something else that is not in the Constitution yet they have all the power. Why is that?

Another alternative is revolution. But then you would pit yourself against the active military, people who swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the U.S. whether the threat be foreign or domestic. Could happen, another Civil War could happen and what a mess that would be.

("I must appologize to you and everyone, using the word boob was totally inapropriate, and I am sorry for its use. Please accept my appology.")

Airborne (& Miss Rose), I don't know who you are, but I am sooo happy to know there are people out there courageous and wise enough to speak the truth. Unfortunately, people hold on to "safe" ideas that are hard to let go off, despite the evidence in front of their faces. and realizing they are wrong is a hard thing to do.

I believe most Americans have great ideals but have been brain washed quite successfully by the government and religion. One must be willing to open their minds and read and see the actions (not listen to the words) of the powers, to get a true grasp of our current situation. (btw: I believe very deeply in a Higher Power, not just organized religion for the same limiting reason with questionable agendas in their origins).

May we all have the strength & courage to "wake up" and be strong.
