Fall

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence. And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

– William John Henry Boetcker (1873–1962)

    From the Cold War thriller The Hunt for Red October, Fred Thompson’s character informs us, “Son, a Russian doesn’t take a dump without a plan.” So too with these Alinsky inspired disciples who obviously have their own version of an American “Red October.” So, why now are the professional Alinskyites emerging from their sarcophaguses and cranking up the OWS media circus?

      Desensitization. OWS is funded through Soros and dozens of his interlocking 501(c)(3)s, the Tides Foundation, the CPUSA, AFL-CIO, SEIU, UAW, Islamic radicals, and, of course, Obama’s BFF, ACORN. This abomination of Aliskyistes is determined that America should become acclimated daily to the classic Marxist street rhetoric of financial inequality, anti-capitalism, and “lets all hate rich Jews, oh I meant Wall Street bankers.” Big lies and the drum beat repetition of the big lies into a national consensus: where in 20th-century history have we seen this happen? Oh yes, but back then it was referred as “Lebensraum.” And we all know how well that that turned out.

        Misdirection. The Obama administration reeks of donor payoffs and political scandals. Solyndra, Fast and Furious, LightSquared, SunPower, the list goes on and on. These folks make Boss Tweed, Harding, and Grant seem like rank amateurs when it comes to squandering taxpayers’ money. We are talking tens of billions of taxpayer dollars that have been diverted into the pockets of wealthy connected Democrats and their green projects, unions, and far-left political groups. So what do you do, as a trained and indoctrinated Aliskyite, to deflect attention from these slip-ups? You move the media spotlight onto those nasty Wall Street capitalists. Use up the daily press cycles interviewing time-warped hippies. Create the news, channel the news, mold the news, spin the news, and bury the stories that adversely affect your poll ratings. And as Alinsky taught, when you control the news you must also effectively “personalize, polarize and demonize” your enemies. The Tea Party types, those nasty GOPers in Congress, the “bitter clingers” who love God and guns, all are daily target practice for the MSM and the OWS attack vultures.

    The GOP had damn well better wake up fast to this new (to America) process, or they will have lost the initiative before the first roll of the die. Note carefully that OWS and their handlers have not announced what specific political decisions would be required to end the street protests. By organizing and funding these protests, and training a core group of paid OWS in street agitation and violence, the Alinskyites have purposely lit a slow-burning fuse that could culminate in a tumultuous summer of 2012. The truth of the matter is that there are huge numbers of unemployed and underemployed people in this country. (Hmmm…did this administration purposefully allow unemployment to remain at near Depression-era levels to foster an army of malleable unemployed to be led by Marxist Street agitators?) The professional street agitators, as practiced by the Arab Spring revolts, can easily seduce the unemployed.

      We know nothing about the accusers and the specifics of the accusations from a dozen years ago are reported rather vaguely by Politico: “episodes that left the women upset and offended” and “physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.”

        Incredibly, when Willie Geist asked him to describe specifically what Politico is accusing Cain of having done, Martin hemmed, hawed then ultimately said “we’re just not going to get into the details of exactly what happened with these women,” beyond the sketchy generalities in the Politico story.

        “Inside-the-Beltway media have begun to launch unsubstantiated personal attacks on Cain,” spokesman J.D. Gordon said in a written statement. “Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cain’s tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.

        “Let’s find these accusers before putting this news out there just in case it can’t be proven.”

        “Are you kidding? This could bring down Cain as a serious candidate! Get the news out there! Let the cows out of the barn! We’ll worry about it being a false accusation later when everyone will doubt it was a rumor.”

        Dem Dems do this whenever they are threatened.

        I just heard on FOXNews that its all the Republicans fault for the bad economy and high unemployment. I wonder what took them so long?

        I can see it now-race riots if a Republican white guy gets in office…(and we already know its the white guys’ fault for Obama’s abyssmal failure as POTUS)

        Dems are intellectually unable to accept responsibility. To them it is simply that We the People are too stupid to understand what they, the elite over educated types, are trying to do

        We are simply foolishly clinging to our guns and religion and have no capacity to learn or understand

        How unfortunate for them that the majority of conservatives are better educated and have higher paying jobs than the majority of Democrats

    Michelle’s back, and she’s madder than ever. She was already pretty angry, seemingly unhappy with just about everything. As her husband wrapped up the Democratic nomination in 2008, she let fly her real feelings: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.” A few months into her job as first lady, her French counterpart asked how she liked the gig: “Don’t ask!” she reportedly spat. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it!”

      Now, she is ready to spew her bilious disgust with America on the campaign trail. A dignified, transcendent first lady? No chance. Michelle is going to break with a hundred years of tradition and play the role of attack dog, heaping derision on her husband’s political opponents like no other first lady before her.

        America’s first lady will travel the country this election season to tell her fellow Americans just how bad it is out there (between lavish vacations, of course). Unlike President Ronald Reagan, who saw morning in America – that great shining city on a hill – Michelle will tell all who will listen that Republicans want to poison the air and water, stifle free speech, oppress the religious. She will offer not an uplifting vision of what her husband’s America could be but only a vapid view of what Republicans’ America would be.

      So. Do we have this right?

      We can’t have a conservative black man in the Oval Office because he was once accused by anonymous women of “inappropriate behavior”?

      But we can give a pass and an attaboy to a liberal white man who was actually in the Oval Office when accused of infinitely worse behavior by said multiples of women? Including, say again, rape? And now everybody just has a big ole laugh about it all at said ex-president’s 65th birthday when Lady Gaga shakes her booty at Bill and everybody roars?

    The quote is so right on by Boetcker. Just wait til the anti-capitalists realize it. I hope it be sooner, before we have a socialist nation when it will be too late. I suspect that Boetcker saw what progressive Woodrow Wilson’s welfare was leading up to.

      Hi Kitt! It is beautiful, isn’t it. No, I didn’t have the good fortune to be in that scene. I am in Houston, TX so we don’t have anything like that here.

      It makes me long for home in NW Pennsylvania, though.

      I adore fall! Leaves, pumpkins, football – the scents and sounds

    Occupy Wall Street is looking to make its mark — on everything from tote bags to t-shirts.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement applied for the trademark to its name on Oct. 24, filing for the use of the mark on its website, in periodicals and newsletters, and on clothing and bags.

    I do not like Mittens – never have, He is a windsock, he turns whih ever way the wind blows. The only reason the MSM and the RNC are pushing him forward as the candidate is because it is ‘his turn’ Well, I am tired of being told who my candidate is instead of being ask who I would want. The ‘good old boy’ days are over.

    We the People do not want Mittens
