“Back in the USSR … You don’t know how lucky you are, boy … Back in the USSR”
Stalin did it. Mao did it. Castro did it. Chavez did it. Obama's former advisor Anita Dunn said it had to be done. And it is being done 24/7 with this administration. All fascist socialist/communist governments must disarm the mouths/minds and hands of the people they intend to dictate to. Hell, Barack Obama is downright Nixonian.
Now Mark Steyn observes the Chicago thug machine in the White House is very reminiscent of the old Soviet Union...
On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday, National Review columnist Mark Steyn argued that the media — despite recently taking umbrage at President Barack Obama’s lack of transparency on the golf course — are lapdogs not unlike the journalists coerced by the Soviet Union.
"There are lots of things to get upset with the guy over,” Steyn said. “The issue here is the gulf between what the president preaches and how he lives. … One Christmas vacation costs more than flying the royal family around the world for a whole year. … He doesn’t live like [the] 1 percent, he lives like the 0.00000001 percent. He costs more money than every European royal family put together. There’s a disconnect here.”
Here is Obama's regular Saturday morning address from today. He warns Congress if they continue to refuse compromise with him (more taxes, under the faux "tax the wealthy" meme) the horrific cuts under this latest "crisis" of sequestration he (whose idea the sequestration was) will be forced to "inflict pain" (Kinda like the Chicago thug extortionists)...
Translation: 'You must pay me extortion [tax hikes] in order to stop me from beating the American people to a pulp because of YOU...'
Remember, these "cuts" are NOT with current budgets/spending/funding, but projected future funding (increases). Yet, it is in Obama's control where and what to make the $85 billion 'cuts' in. Immediately, even ahead of the sequester deadline, the decision was to have the DHS open the detainment facilities and release thousands of illegal aliens into this country's population. Obama intends to make this painful on Americans in order to deflect blame onto the republicans in the House of Congress. He is no more than the abusive spouse/partner slugging away at the family and blaming the significant other, 'Look, I-I-I-I-I didn't want to hit you, but you made me do it ... You forced me to. It's all your fault'.
By the way, something else you will not hear in the Obama ass-kissing MSM, "More than 700 pages of healthcare rules released". 700 more pages for just 4 new 'rules'. This is on top of the thousands and thousands of pages already in the law that includes volumes of rules/regulations, and yes, new taxes on EVERYBODY. "Rules" with this administration translate to fees, penalties, taxes. But the American MSM continues to contort themselves in order to play along and cover Obama's ass in order to stay in his good graces, even when his and his administration's message is consistently and extremely muddled, idiotic, and inaccurate ... and outright bullshit lies.
