Trashing the Economy--on purpose!

by Al Benson Jr.

I have not always agreed with all the positions promoted by David Horowitz, head of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Sherman Oaks, California, but in this instance, regarding his take on Obama and the economy, I think he has hit the nail on the head. I have not seen anyone else come this close.

I've watched all the conservative pundits gasp in shock at what Obama seems to be doing to the economy, and to the cultural condition of the country in general. Many of them look at particular parts of his agenda and exclaim "Doesn't he realize what this will do to the country?" Of course he realizes it. That's why he's doing it. Somehow that glaring fact never seems to fully register with much of his opposition. Many of his conservative opponents almost seem to have a deer-in-the-headlights approach to his agenda. They view it in living socialist color, but act as though they can't quite believe it. Makes you wonder. Are some of them that dumb, or do they think their audience is?

Recently, Mr. Horowitz sent out a short Internet missive in which he asked the question "Is the President trying to strain the American economy to the breaking point?" Good question. Mr. Horowitz already knows the answer and he is trying to get his audience to grasp it.

Like Mr. Horowitz, I concluded some time ago that Obama's agenda, (not really his but that of the shadow government behind his throne) was to destroy the country economically, spiritually, and in every other vital or important way. You can reach no other conclusion when you look at his solutions for "reviving the economy" which are nothing more than the same old tired socialist solutions that were used to get us into this mess. He almost seems to be saying "If this failed, then let's do more of it to fix the problem."

Obama's agenda, (and again, that of those behind his throne) seems to be to lower the living standards in this country to those of the third world countries and then to raise the standards of those countries so that the United States can be successfully merged into the third world. This is really no different than the programs of various tax-free foundations in this country back in the 1950s and 60s. Their aim was to lower the standard of living in this country so we could be successfully merged with the Soviet Union. Is there much difference between that and what Obama is doing, via directives from his puppeteers (George Soros and the CFR)?

Mr. Horowitz, like me, doesn't see much difference, and he notes in his comments: "If you think the last question is improbable it is only because you haven't read the plan of two Marxist professors from the 1960s who hatched the plan to 'stress the system' so that a leftwing government can take more control over our lives and make America a place we will no longer recognize as home. These two professors, Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward (whose work Obama learned about as a young 'community organizer' in Chicago) envisioned an activism that would flood the housing market with bad loans, overwhelm the electoral system with the names of dead and fictitious voters, and give a toxic shock to the health care industry by adding millions of people to the rolls with their bills to be paid for by the taxpayer. They wanted all this to happen so that America would be forced to embrace socialist solutions." Can anyone honestly say this isn't happening today?

It does sound somewhat familiar doesn't it? You've probably never heard of these two left-wing professors, but that doesn't mean their work has not affected the way you and your family are being forced to live right now. Most people have never heard of the Council on Foreign Relations either, but that does not mean that this organization hasn't been a major force in this country, during all administrations for decades, to move this country to the left and to grease the skids here for a one-world government. Mostly it means that folks do not find out about these organizations and people because they are deliberately mis-educated or undereducated. Does than mean that the government schools are part of this too? You better believe it baby--in spades!

Mr. Horowitz's organization is distributing a pamphlet called "Breaking the System." To find out more about this check out their web page at

It was refreshing to see that someone out there recognizes the fact that Obama and his handlers are purposely trashing the system and that all their seemingly stupid moves are really part of a grand design to trash the country. Even many of their so-called "conservative" opponents seem to fail to grasp his.

The Debt Ceiling Dog And Pony Show

by Al Benson Jr.

For weeks now we have been treated to nightly doses, via our lapdog media, of scary articles about the national debt ceiling. The current Marxist administration, parading as Democrats, are telling us our national house of cards will come tumbling down on August 2nd if they are not given, by Congress, the ability to further increase the already horrendous debt our great grandchildren and their grandchildren will be paying off because of licentious federal spending. The Republicans have boasted they will not vote to increase the debt limit no matter what. They claim to be holding firm to their commitment to cut federal spending, and so on and so forth, blah, blah, blah.

I hate to be the purveyor of negative information, but they are both lying through their teeth to the American public, who, thanks to their public school "educations" can't tell the difference.

Recently Obama did an interview with Scott Pelley, one of the talking heads at CBS (two talking heads chattering at one another). According to Pelley said: "Can you guarantee, Mr. President, that if there's a shutdown, can you personally guarantee that Social Security checks will go out for seniors?" To which the Great One replied: "I can't, Scott, I'm glad you asked me that. I can't guarantee, and not just the old people, Scott, it's veterans too. I can't guarantee it. Those checks probably won't go out." I'll bet Obama was glad that Pelley asked him that question. It was probably part of the script. It gave him a little bit of economic terrorism to spread among us older folks, a little something to scare the living daylights out of us--as it was intended to do.

Can you picture the thousands upon thousands of older folks, living on only Social Security, calling or writing their congresspersons and telling them to vote to raise the debt ceiling so they won't starve next month--and thereafter? It's a diabolical political ploy used by the current Marxist administration to get what they want, claiming it's what the public really wants because of the public outcry. It gives Congress, both Republicrats and Republicrats (because there really ain't a dime's worth of difference between them) the excuse to do what most of them really wanted to do all along.

So, if the government really shuts down and Social Security checks and veteran's checks fail to go out, does that mean that congressional paychecks will also not go out? After all, if no one else gets their checks, why should they? But that will only happen in your dreams, Charlie. Those parasites will continue to feed at the public trough even if the public starves!

If Obama doesn't just try to raise the ceiling through some "executive order" (his favorite way of doing everything he can't get done legitimately) and Congress does get to vote on it, will the debt ceiling be raised? Will Congress vote for it? Of course they will--this time, next time, and for many more times to come. Both sides already know this. The only folks who haven't figured it out yet are the public-school "educated" American citizens. It's their gut feeling it shouldn't happen. They realize, at some level, that this will cost them the family farm (literally). What they don't realize is that the Feds are playing them like a fiddle and laughing all the way to the bank.

It's all about power and redistribution of the wealth (our wealth redistributed to the Marxists and their friends in power. That's what Marxism is always all about, regardless of their lofty pretensions about "power to the people." No one ever thinks to ask them "which people?"

So not to worry, if Obama doesn't do the executive order bit, Congress will do a deal in such a way that the Marxists get what they want, while making it look like the Republicans opposed it, and it will be business as usual in Sodom on the Potomac. The public will get stiffed. But is that anything new? That has been going on at least since Abraham Lincoln and as long as the public remains dumbed-down it will continue.

Only when the public gains enough knowledge to start demanding candidates with strong moral standards, Christian standards, in those they elect will things begin to change. That means that maybe the churches ought to set some moral standards for those their parishoners vote for. We aren't there yet.
