Disgust! Anger!

 

“The Revolt of the Underclass and The Masses”;

“Heading for a Train Wreck?”

“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” (Mt 12:25b)

“‘Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!’ says the LORD.” (Jer 23:1)

“The weak you have not strengthened, nor have you healed those who were sick, nor bound up the broken, nor brought back what was driven away, nor sought what was lost; but with force and cruelty you have ruled them.” (Ezek 34:4)

Commentary:

As you will read below in the Excerpts, the political Elite “overclass” is in the process of destroying both itself and the people of America (the “underclass” in its eyes).

As you will read in the articles I have Excerpted, their ARROGANCE, IGNORANCE, DISINTEREST in our well-being and STATIST IDEOLOGY are coming together to form a “Perfect Storm”.

Please look at the articles below. As a nation, we are in a “Valley of Decision”. Then PRAY, asking God to INTERVENE! (Joel 3:14; Ps 119:126):

The Revolt of the Masses (by Daniel Henninger)

“Well, it’s beginning to look as if the globe's lumpen proletariat has decided they’ve had about enough of the lumpen bureaucratariat. It could be a revolution under way, though not the one predicted by the boys at the barricades.”

“To [Karl]Marx, the lumpen proletariat... was the most marginalized, hopeless, faceless swath of the underclass.”

“Karl would have joined the charge against what has become a lumpen bureaucratariatthe permanent, often faceless overclass of gerrymandered politicians, bureaucrats for life and the public unions and special interests that swim alongside like pilot fish.”

“[T]he only evident trend is to strike out at whichever blob is currently in power.”

“What accounts for the global electorate’s growing disgust with the political overclass? Try this: No matter the ideological cast of these governments, they all hold in common one policy: the inexorable upward march of national indebtedness. It has arrived at the edge of the cliff.”

“Mr. Obama’s people seem weirdly oblivious to the scale of their outlays, programs and dreams.”

“This is hardly a fair fight. The political overclass everywhere holds the power to print money and grab it back with taxes and inflation. Still, the election returns suggest that something is stirring. Maybe we should call it the revolt of the masses.”

 

Hurtling toward a train wreck (by Ed Feulner)

“Americans examined the bills being proposed and turned out in great numbers to voice their opposition.”

“Simply put, the American people took matters into their own hands before the politicians could have their way.”

“[T]he best excuse they offered was that you, the American people, were too stupid to understand it.”

“Politicians pushing for an overhaul of our health care system sat down with people from the Heritage Foundation and actually said, many times, such things as: ‘We have to pass this before the American people can read it. They will not understand it, and people will tell them bad things about it.’”

“Nor should the president and his allies try to disguise the same rejected ‘reform’ under a different name. Renaming the public option a ‘co-op’ is disingenuous, for example. It all amounts to the same thing: a single-payer system, which means the only choice Americans would have is a government package.”

“[T]his isn’t about him[Obama], it’s about the country. And the country has rejected what he is proposing. The people have understood. As Ronald Reagan frequently reminded us: Trust the people.”

Obama and the Perfect Political Storm (by Karl Rove)

“[T]he president is focusing on health care when the economy and jobs are nearly everyone’s top issue.”

“Moreover, he’s tried to sell it with promises Americans aren’t buying.”

Workers are also rightly concerned they won’t be able to keep their current coverage.”

“Families believe they will be pushed into a government plan as the ‘public option’ drives private insurers out of the market.”

Health-care providers fear they’ll be forced to follow one-size-fits-all guidelines drafted by bureaucrats”

“And seniors are afraid of Mr. Obama’s plan to cut $500 billion from Medicare over the next decade… It’s simply not possible to cut that much from Medicare without also cutting services seniors need.”

“He has used up almost all his goodwill in less than nine months, with the hardest work still ahead. At the year’s start, Democrats were cocky. At summer’s end, concern is giving way to despair. A perfect political storm is amassing, and heading straight for Democrats.”

What I Learned from the ‘Mob’ (by Tom Coburn)

What I gathered from them is that it’s not just the proposed overhaul of health care that has them upset. Many also expressed a sense of betrayal.”

“[I]t still appears that the government in Washington is run for its own benefit and the benefit of special interestsnot for the benefit of the American people.”

“The folks I met with also don’t trust politicians in Washington

“[T]hey know that voter concerns about spending may not only derail the ‘public option’ in health-care reform but could turn into a referendum on our real problems—our crushing burden of government and the politicians who defend the status quo.”

Could the Feds Seize The Internet?

“A Senate bill lets the president ‘declare a cybersecurity emergency’ relating to ‘nongovernmental’ computer networks and do what’s needed to respond to the threat. Didn’t they just collect our e-mail addresses?”

“Senate Bill 773 would grant the administration emergency powers (where have we heard that before?) in the event of a cyberemergency that the president would have the power to define and declare.”

“Health Care” Reform:

 

Who Decides What (by Richard W. Rahn)

“Do you think pedophiles should be given Viagra at taxpayers’ expense? Despite what appears to be an absurd question, that is exactly what occurred in Britain under their National Health Service (NHS).”

“The misuse of taxpayer money that Ms. Squire and her colleagues have identified is a direct result of British government officials having the power to decide what medical procedures will and will not be allowed under the NHS.”

“Why should a government bureaucrat have the right to tell you what anti-cancer drugs you can and cannot have? How old is too old to have a hip replacement?

Obama’s Health Care Plan Leaves Americans in Multi-Trillion Dollar Debt (by Sen. Sam Brownback)

“The Obama administration and Democratic members of Congress have been claiming that the huge price tag of their health care reform proposal will require no new taxes on the middle class, and that it can be paid for in full with a new surtax on the top 1 percent of earners.”

“[T]hat claim is virtually impossible to support. With these top earners as the only source of funding, the health plan budget deficit would grow to over $1 trillion by 2048 and to over $20 trillion by 2084.”

Caving to Trial Lawyers (by Fred Barnes)

“We’ve always suspected that fear of angering trial lawyers was the only reason President Obama refused to embrace tort reform as a crucial part of achieving his goal of reduced health care costs.”

“So much for Obama’s insistence that cutting costs is dear to his heart. He’s rejected, for purely political reasons, one of the most effective tools for containing medical costs. It would upset a special interest group--well-heeled plaintiff’s lawyers--that is one of the biggest funders of the Democratic party.”

Obama’s Unconstitutional Czars:

 

Obama’s Science Czar Considered Forced Abortions, Sterilization as Population Growth Solutions (by Joseph Abrams)

“President Obama’s ‘science czar,’ John Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, ‘compulsory sterilization,’ and the creation of a ‘Planetary Regime’ that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet

“The three authors summarize their guiding principle in a single sentence: ‘To provide a high quality of life for all, there must be fewer people.’”

“Those plans include forcing single women to abort their babies or put them up for adoption; implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty; and spiking water reserves and staple foods with a chemical that would make people sterile.”

Diversity Czar Threatens Free Speech

“Mark Lloyd, a disciple of Saul Alinsky and fan of Hugo Chavez, wants to destroy talk radio and says free speech is a distraction. The new FCC diversity ‘czar’ says Venezuela is an example we should follow.”

“He proposes using the existing FCC ‘localism’ requirement, which can mean anything from running more public service announcements to putting Janeane Garofalo on after Rush Limbaugh. Local community organizers would be encouraged to harass conservative stations by filing complaints with the FCC.”

What Place Do Czars Have in Free America? (by Phyllis Schlafly)

“The long list of Obama’s czars, accountable to no one except Obama himself, is one of his most worrisome and expensive notions. The czars may be substitutes for the nearly half of the administration’s executive-branch positions that remain unfilled.”

“The czars’ salaries are paid by the U.S. taxpayers, but they are not confirmed by the Senate and they appear to have the authority to override those who are confirmed. Lack of Senate confirmation means we must rely on Glenn Beck to discover that the green jobs czar, Van Jones, is or was a COMMUNIST and a self-described ‘rowdy black nationalist.’”

“Obama has appointed 34 czars. Just listing them is enough to scare anyone who believes in constitutional and representative government

Obama’s Unconstitutional ‘Czars’ (by Alan Caruba)

“Here’s a question that has been nagging me for months. Are Obama’s ever-growing number of ‘czars’constitutional?

“I am of the belief that Obama has methodically gone about creating a shadow government of men and women with undefined powers, but who likely have even more influence with the Oval Office than those who hold office under the mandates of the Constitution.”

“There are now some thirty or more of these ‘czars’ and they represent a threat to the authority of the Congress and could be utilized in some manufactured ‘crisis’ to take control of the federal government, dispensing with the rule of law.”

Ask About FCC ‘Chief Diversity Officer’ (by Seton Motley)

“Senator [Chuck Grassley, R., IA] said he was ‘concerned with the appointment due to Lloyd’s writings on political talk radio and the Fairness Doctrine.’”

“We have repeatedly explained that Lloyd is virulently anti-conservative, anti-capitalist, almost myopically racially fixated and exuberantly pro-regulation.”

“Lloyd has in his past written a road map for how liberal activists should …threaten the licenses of stations with whom they do not agree politically.”

“But from all we have thus far learned it appears that the First Amendment and free speech are either completely foreign or irrelevant to him.”

Conservatives Called “Right-wing Domestic Terrorists”:

 

You are a right-wing domestic terrorist if you oppose ObamaCare

“So there you have it. You are now a Right-Wing Domestic Terrorist OFFICIALLY according to Hussein Obama if you don’t cower to ObamaCARE and let congress shove it down your throats.”

Event on the DNC’s ‘Organizing for America’ site called opponents ‘Right Wing Domestic Terrorists’ (by Kimberly Morin)

“What is completely unreasonable is the language in which this person referred to those who disagree with Obama’s healthcare plan.”

“From the posting: ‘All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.’”

“This is Obama’s official Organizing for America’ website paid for by the DNC not just some left wing website.”

Intimidating Opposition:

 

Obama Campaign Organization Politicizes 9/11 ~ Calls Town Hall Protesters “Terrorists” (From Heritage Foundation’s blog)

 

“Many Americans took off work and sacrificed family time this past August to attend congressional town halls, where they voiced opposition to a government-run overhaul of their personal health care choices.”

“[T]hey were called names, labeled as ‘too organized’ or ‘un-American’, and likened to mobs, Nazis and Fascists. And now President Obama’s team has designated September 11 as the day to liken conservatives to Al Qaeda terrorists.”

“‘All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process’”

“Will a single American become more enamored with the President’s health care plan, if they are called a terrorist?”

Obama Celebrates Islam:

 

Obama Hails Contributions of Muslims at Ramadan Dinner at White House (by Ann Sanner)

“President Barack Obama on Tuesday praised American Muslims for enriching the nation’s culture at a dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.”

“The president joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called ‘a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress.’”
