Gateway Pundit

Have you ever wondered why the Obama Administration’s plans for improving the U.S. economy always seem to fall flat? It just might have something to do with the fact that the Obama Administration has been working with someone who doesn’t like capitalism.

According to an article on France24.com, a well known economist who isn’t fond of capitalism, but promotes Socialism, has been working with the Democrats and the Obama Administration “for a long time”:

In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. While he is often linked to France’s Socialist Party, his writings have made him unusually popular in the US.

Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has only just been translated into English – several weeks ahead of schedule, due to popular demand – and the New York Times’s star columnist Paul Krugman has already described it as “the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade”.

The French economist’s current US book tour is turning into something of a red carpet event. So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

“The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for a long time,” Piketty told AFP in Washington.

Well, we all knew Obama was a socialist since he was elected.
Remember Joe the Plumber?

Now we know he’s been getting advice from international socialists.
What a shock.

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Family Security Matters

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work – in the private sector – and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

‘Dictatorship 101′: Beck’s Chilling Break-Down of What Parent Arrested After Questioning Common Core Means for America

The Blaze

Glenn Beck told his audience on Monday that the arrest of a Maryland father who was asking questions about Common Core is frightening evidence of the country moving further along the path that he says goes from “nudge,” to “shove,” to “shoot.”

For those unfamiliar with the terms, Beck explained that “it’s how every Marxist utopian dream begins.”

“You start simple, with just a little ‘nudge,’” he said.  “It’s Cash for Clunkers. It is trying to figure out a way to make energy prices ‘necessarily skyrocket,’ to nudge you into hybrids.”

Glenn Beck Reacts to Parent Arrested for Speaking Out Against Common Core, Robert Small

But when that doesn’t work, the government starts to “shove,” Beck continued. “That’s when they use the IRS to shut down opposing voices. They use the NSA to monitor and track American citizens…Then they start using regulation and they start arresting people to scare everybody.”

If that also fails to produce the results the government seeks, Beck said, historically, they start to shoot, or send people to re-education or internment camps.

Feds Impose Mandatory Event Data Recorders in All Cars

Moonbattery

In the near future, no American will drive alone. Wherever we go, Big Brother will be right there beside us:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rule requires all light passenger vehicles be equipped with an EDR [event data recorder] by Sep.1, 2014. Ninety-six percent of new cars already have them — measuring such inputs as speed, lateral acceleration, pedal effort, seat belt use, wheel spin, steering wheel turn and direction.

Big Government may not be the only villain in this attack on the Fourth Amendment. According to Tom Kowalick, head of the design team that is standardizing EDRs, they can be used to roll back the odometer or change the vehicle identification number.

Kowalick points out  that YouTube has hundreds of clips that demonstrate how to hack into automobile EDRs. “Look at the number of people who are making tools, electronic tools, to do these things. You’ll find hundreds of thousands of people who are already clicking onto these sites. And they must be doing that for some purpose,” he said.

Car theft could be in for a renaissance.

As always with ham-fisted government intrusion, unintended consequences reduce bureaucrats’ pernicious designs to the tip of an iceberg.

Electing the Enemy – Anti-American Philosophies Underlying Obama’s Policies

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE  SELLIN, PHD

The anti-American political philosophies underlying the policies of Barack  Hussein Obama can be defined as the juncture of three ideologies: socialism,  Islam and opportunistic racism to foster resentment among minority groups and  promote race and class conflict as a lubricant for his radical transformation of  the United States.

The Daily Sheeple

The evidence that we the people, are at risk of being placed under martial law, and losing all of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution is overwhelming.

On October 17, 2006, President Bush signed into law, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. The law allows the President to declare a “public emergency” at his own discretion, and place federal troops anywhere throughout the United States. Under this law, the President also now has the authority to federalize National Guard troops without the consent of Governors, in order to restore “public order.” The President can now deploy federal troops to U.S. cities, at will, which eliminates the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act.

In short, President Obama can now declare Martial Law anytime he sees fit to do so.

An Excerpt from the John Warner Defense Authorization Act follows:

Instead of taking the opportunity to sign the United Nations Small Arms  Treaty on Tuesday, the White House has indicated that Barack Obama will sign it  sometime before the end of August.  This causes some concern as to what type of  event the White House is waiting on to exploit the emotions of Americans to gain  support for the measure and put pressure on the Senate to ratify it.  Many have  suggested that the signature will come under cover of darkness, sometime in  August, When Congress will not be in town.

Obama Could Be Indicted For War Crimes

Western Journalism

On October 2, 2002, Barack Obama burst onto the national scene with his famous anti-war speech at the Federal Plaza in Chicago. Mysteriously—or not so mysteriously per the 2008 Obama presidential campaign—video of the speech was “lost” except for thirteen seconds (shown in the above video). Many believe it was lost because the panning camera would have revealed a who’s who of radical leftists, anti-Semites, and “social justice” (that is socialist) unions  in the audience.

It was only one step then from the 2004 Democratic Convention keynote speech to the presidency. Along the way, Obama continued to rally his anti-war shock troops, complete with “Bush is a war criminal” posters and frothing protesters reminiscent of the anti-Vietnam War movement.

Oddly, or not so oddly, these anti-war protesters suddenly disappeared once Obama ascended to the presidency. But lo and behold, when the Occupy Wall Street movement got under way, the same radicals who were part of the anti-war movement were now part of the “pay your fair share” movement.
