Below is an article from Pravda that I found on the Drudge Report. It’s a sad sorry day for America when the Russian Newspaper Pravda is more accurate and insightful on events in the United States of America than any of our news agencies. I’ve read this article several times and each time it has the impact of a slap in the face, in your face, brutally truthful, gleefully irreverent evaluation of how far we’ve fallen. It’s absent any hint of political correctness and if it wasn’t so vindictive it would remind me of how, back in the day, we used to speak frankly about the events in our country when we still had free speech.
The America I knew is gone. The article below rubs my American nose in that painful reality and I would like to thank its author and even Pravda for an amazing offensive wakeup call that everyone in America needs to heed. We’ve gotten so full of ourselves that we’re unable to respond to constructive criticism and the traditional values (Pre baby boom values) that made us a great nation. Perhaps the gleeful break with any semblance of political correctness below is pointing the way toward taking the country back. Political correctness and truth simply can’t co-exist because Political correctness is about control of voting blocs while the truth of America is supposed to be about freedom and individual liberty. Freedom is mutually exclusive of political control, and identity politics, and the more this PC crap is tolerated the more freedom we lose until we wake up in a Fascist nation with Barak Obama as our new Ill Duce.
The point where the article below may be getting it wrong is that it contends we’re falling into socialism while I’m not ready to commit to that. We may well be into a fascism where control of the state and the financial and industrial assets form a new fascism for the twenty-first century. We may fall into the stupor of socialist drones or we may end up goose-stepping into a new age where we will indeed trade our white hats for black ones and allow the elites of banking and government to rule western culture.
One thing is certain: the America I knew is already gone and a bloodless takeover by either neo socialists or neo fascists is already well underway. The American political system has become so corrupt that it’s now the oppressor of the citizens it was intended to serve. Half the nation pays no taxes and half the nation seems to think our Black Ill Duce, Barak Obama, is some kind of heaven sent messiah showing us the way to the Promised Land of absolute equality in misery and abject poverty or economic and moral servitude. Barak Obama, the product of baby boom social engineering and its “victory” over racism seems to be the means by which we lose the last of our freedom and enter into the tyranny of financial and political oligarchs.
The article below is from Pravda.
Did I mention Pravda?
American capitalism gone with a whimper
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.
Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.
