Look at the links in the right column to see how my concern lights began to glow, then to blink, then to flash brilliantly as the claxon horns went off calling everyone to battle stations. We are watching the world crash and burn right before our eyes, and it is happening on purpose, and by design.
In the 2008 political campaigns, I thought the edginess and the clear dividing lines between Marxist ideology and American Constitutionalism began to become more visible and more distinct. Some of the false façade that always stands in for the real Marxists began to slip. Perhaps Marxist ideology had made such inroads into American thought by that time that it was comfortable for Marxists to wax Marxist out in public. Everyone (or most people) nowadays, to their own peril, no longer see Marxist ideology as antithetical to American Constitutionalism, or even to the existence of America herself.
The news media, or, as I refer to them, the SLIMC1 , is of no help to the public here, because the SLIMC1 is thoroughly Marxist to begin with. Virtually the entire field of professional journalism participates with the Democrat Party in achieving Marxist goals in America, and in the world.
Now that the American economy is spiraling toward the abyss, thanks to Republican professional legislators with John Boehner in the lead, who have “kicked the continuing-resolution debt-ceiling can down the road” again, for what may be the last time, a budget-less, out-of-control, hidden and undocumented Democrat spending binge will now begin, with an anti-American died-in-the-wool Marxist wielding the checkbook.
Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. At this point it might be good to recollect how all this latest and greatest threat to American existence bloomed. Look to the right column of this page, and you will see a series of articles in which I gave my opinion on what were original causes. They were all government induced. That includes the housing bubble. The government invented, government controlled and government fed twin economic monsters Fannie May and Freddie Mac are at the root of it all.
They still exist, and they still operate, with the exclusive purpose for being of enabling people to make bad loans, meaning, loans that no private banker in his right mind would make. Enabling bad loans is the sole reason Fannie and Freddie exist and operate. That’s it.
Not just for poor people. It enabled well-off people to get too-large loans they couldn’t really afford, to get bigger houses they couldn’t really afford, because the banker knew, and was told by the government, that he could sell the bad loan to Fannie or Freddie and the U.S. government would back it up with the full faith and credit of the American government. Thus, we encountered easier and easier credit, larger and larger loans, smaller and smaller margins, and a veritable binge of “flipping” in the American real estate market.
But, you see, they were all bad loans to begin with, and bad loans never suddenly become good. They were all loans that never should have been made, and corrupt Marxist legislators like Barney Frank knew it.
Then we had a market spike, and the instant promotion of the flagrant lie of financial institutions in trouble that were “too big to fail” inducing Bush, with Obama, McCain and others in attendance and in full agreement, panicked into signing TARP, precipitating another economic depression. There was unanimous agreement of both political Parties and all political contenders in this disastrous and completely unnecessary panic.
Forget double dip recession. We never got out of the first recession. It has never stopped. There was unanimous agreement of both political Parties and all political contenders in this disastrous and completely unnecessary panic. But here’s the thing: the market goes up, and the market goes down, and what it does on a daily basis is very near meaningless in the long term. Banks or other businesses that are in trouble deserve to be in trouble; if they go into bankruptcy, they deserve to go into bankruptcy. There is no such thing as any bank or any business of any kind that is “too big to fail.” That’s just a flagrant lie. None of us taxpayers owe any support at all to any private enterprise.
All of this has been brewing for a very long time.
So, again, look to the links in the right hand column for how we got to this point. Looking back at history might help get us away from repeating it going forward. And recognize that Marxism, in all its forms, is absolutely incompatible with the American Constitution. There is nothing Marx wrote that is compatible with the American Constitution. Today, the once honorable term Liberal has been overtaken by Marxist ideologues, who call themselves Liberals. But there is no Liberal (i.e., Marxist) principle that is not antagonistic to the American Constitution.
“Redistribution” operates in defiance of the Commandment not to steal.
“Class Warfare” operates in defiance of the Commandment to not covet.
The anti-religion sentiment came out of the Communist Manifesto.
The Equality Stupidity came straight out of the Communist Manifesto.
In pointing out the sins of believers, the Marxist un-believers identify themselves as the true Masters Of Hypocrisy.
“Public” education came out of the Communist Manifesto, and nowhere else.
Organized labor unions came out of the Communist Manifesto, and nowhere else.
A New World Order means the end of the USA.
A Global Village means the end of the USA.
The end of sovereignty means the end of the USA.
Open borders means the end of the USA.
The Communist Manifesto was written by an evil man who loved Machiavelli, and who tempered Machiavelli’s The Ends Justify The Means with Hegel’s Hegelian Dialectic method. Study them. They are all sneaky, underhanded, deceptive stratagems by which someone who is a nobody can get himself established as absolute ruler, brutally killing off even his own carefully recruited and trained agent provocateurs and other “useful idiots” in the process. This is pure evil.
That describes the truth beneath the Communist Manifesto, Marx’s most well known work. To destroy whatever system of government that currently exists, and replace it with an absolute dictatorship.
Anyone who supports any portion of Marxism is thus anti-American.
No Liberal, in the modern sense of the term, can possibly keep an oath of office that swears to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. Not honestly. They lie. Their real purpose is to destroy our Constitution. Marxism and our Constitution are absolutely incompatible. Marxism cannot coexist with liberty of individual citizens, and with citizen representation in government.
True Marxists, like Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, seek to replace the existing order, but they will not describe what they will replace it with. They cannot. Marx’s Communism is a silly-assed impossible pipe dream, and they know it. Socialism, as existing and deteriorating in the world today, is a clear path to the impoverishment of nations. If they tell the truth, that they want to be dictator, even at the expense of millions of human lives, they head themselves to prison. Lower down Marxists are not smart enough to even think about it. See the Replacing America page.
Pray for America and for Western Culture, prepare for the worst, hope for the best, and join the Tea Party Movement.

Why are you so obsessed with the idea of 'Marxism' ?..everything you say has to in some way involve Marxists and Marxism...could it be that deep down you yourself are a Marxist, but are terrified to admit to it?...the world DOESN'T revolve around Marxism you know!!!!!

Your name is vic biorseth? ???
Your email is email@example.com? ???
Cowabunga, Buffalo Bob, there must be a clone of me out there.
Nice to hear from you again, Sharifrazy; this is the first time since I blocked you on my FaceBook account; thanks for commenting here, on my own WebSite, where I am a bit more in control of security. I noted from the day I blocked you that you never again posted on my wall as if you were me; I suspected then that it was you. I just looked at the email account above in my name, and, guess what? I saw my own FaceBook profile picture attached to that email account. Now, how do you suppose my FaceBook profile picture would get attached to a yahoo email account? You wouldn’t be sending emails to people while pretending to be me, now, would you?
All my friends who are already in email contact with me know that I do not use Yahoo mail.
Here’s what your IP address told me when you submitted the comment above:
Gosharooties, do you suppose that means your name is not vic biorseth, and that you’re not from florida? (I left your poor punctuation and lack of capitalization skills uncorrected, but you really ought to take an elementary course in English.)
Why do you not want the whole world to know that your real name is Shakrokh Sharifrazy? Are you ashamed of your own name? Why don’t you try to stand up on your hind legs and pretend to be a man, instead of hiding behind some false façade like a yellow bellied, sniveling, cowardly dog?
Regarding Marxism, to see the inroads the falsehoods of Marxism have made in world society, all you have to do is look at the American Democratic Party Platform, primarily authored by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. Virtually everything modern day “Liberals” and modern day “Progressives” espouse came right straight out of that document, and nowhere else. The whole Democrat Party, and practically the whole world of professional journalism, and the whole of the world of celebritwittery holds all Judeo-Christian religions up to open scorn, ridicule and mockery, and they oppose even the most simple and obvious Western Culture principles of right versus wrong, just as you do.
Marx, like Mohammed, was a deceptive, treacherous liar who led millions to move away from Truth and into allegiance with The World. Their arguments – that is to say, their lies – cannot stand in the bright light of Truth, and neither can yours. When you cannot win by argument, you turn to character assassination of the messenger, because you are not bright enough, or you have rejected the required grace required, to even recognize The Truth.
The reason you hide behind someone else’s name is that you are of your father, the great deceiver, and you have adopted the stratagems of his great demon, Machaivelli, in making yourself into a treacherous, sneaky, underhanded deceiver. You, personally, like your arguments, cannot stand in the full light of day. And, neither your lies nor your deceit and treachery will prevail in the end.
Shakrokh Sharifrazy. You may even yet find some way to destroy my character, in your cowardly, sneaky, underhanded way. The fact of the matter, unfortunately for you, Shakrokh Sharifrazy, is that the Truth wins in the end. It’s a forgone conclusion.

I realize that your conflict with this guy is a distraction from the point, but you did not satisfactorily answer the larger question, which may have been leading to the “broad brush” charge of over-generalization. For example, in your text, where you use the phrase “ … brutally killing off even his own carefully recruited and trained agent provocateurs … ” you imply that that is what Marx taught, and yet Marx taught no such thing. I challenge the entire overall implication that the overall gist of the Communist Manifesto is, as you say in your other page attacking Shahrokh Sharifrazy, “ … a call to violent, bloody revolution … “ and that “There is nothing peaceful or compromising about Marx’s Socialism, or his Communism, or any other part of his Manifesto. It is a call to war; to the elimination of the existing order of things.” Marx did not say these things; you did.
Your broad-brush approach also paints all Democrats, of every description, as avid Marxists, which is false. Public school teachers, for instance, are not necessarily Socialist or Communist ideologues. Is it not possible that they may be simple a-political working people with no particular axe to grind?
You are correct in identifying President Obama as a man of the Left; however, I suspect that another part of your animosity toward him might be that he is America’s first black President, and that fact just might add a little to your angst.
Your writing is well thought out; however, you always seem to go a bit too far …

The whole point of Machiavelli’s evil rule The Ends Justify The Means was to get someone to inflict disorder, and then to look heroic by restoring order by killing or suppressing those who inflict disorder, thereby becoming the ruler, to the approval of the unsuspecting victim population.
Marx was a disciple of Machavellian politics, and of of Hegel, who refined them, and Marx adopted and adapted those brutal politics into his revolutionary agenda. The main thrust of Marx’s Manifesto is to politically revise history in such a way as to demonize Capitalism as oppressive and exploitive, and to get people ready to revolt against it. It is a recruitment aid for agent provocateurs and useful idiots. Again, read the last paragraph, which summarizes the whole thing; it is a call to violent, bloody revolution, and it can hardly be mistaken for anything else.
You can also look at how it has been applied. The Marxist Adolph Hitler, for example, used his SA “Brown Shirts” to destabilize society and terrorize his opposition. Then, in the so-called Night Of The Long Knives he rounded up the SA leaders and killed them, replacing them with the “nicer” black-uniformed SS, and he was lauded in the press for having restored order.
Meanwhile, in the International world of Marxism, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, all, had their gigantic “purges” in which untold numbers of their own Party stalwarts were killed or imprisoned. Stalin personally signed death warrants of millions of Communist Party faithful servants.
Even before Marx, Machiavelli’s evil worked to turn revolutionaries into cannibalistic monsters, devouring each other and themselves. Look at the single most significant difference between the America Revolution and the French Revolution, which was, what happened to the “Founding Fathers” in each case.
In America, the Founders and the Framers all died peacefully in their old age, after multiple peaceful transitions of power from President to President. In France, none of them survived the Revolution itself; even the infamous Robespierre went to his own guillotine. Power was assumed by a non-participant, Napoleon Bonaparte, who became absolute dictator, led France and all of Europe into the horrors of the Napoleonic Wars, and crowned himself Emperor, thereby betraying the purpose of the Revolution and restoring Monarchy to France.
What more needs to be said? The ends justified the means.
Public school teachers in general were educated in Marxism-infected “history” and falsehood, which they pass on to their pupils, whether knowingly or otherwise. The point is that the “badness” of Capitalism and individual liberty is promoted, as is the “goodness” of redistribution and collectivization, under the nice sounding title of “Social Justice.”
Regarding the race of Comrade Obama, peace be upon him – so what if he’s our first black President? He’s also our 44th white President. Again, so what? No one gives a flying rat’s behind what the hell color he is. He’s a Marxist Revolutionary. Read his own written and spoken words. Wake up to it. He despises Capitalism and therefore America. He is out to destroy both.
Colonel Alan West and Herman Cain are two worthy Presidential candidates who happen to be blacker than Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. Why do the Democrats and the Leftist media and the Leftist celebrities demonize them and sing the praises of the Marxist candidate?
The charge of racism so frequently leveled at conservatives in general and Republicans in particular is just disgusting, especially considering the flat out racist history of the Democrat Party – the Party of the Klan, and the Party of slavery forever and of segregation forever that always points the finger of racism at the Party of Lincoln and Eisenhower and desegregation.
But, after all, for Democrats, the ends justify the means.

George Bush and Barack Obama are simply the most recent recipients, of the ills visited on us by Woodrow Wilson via the Federal Reserve, and the Keynesians. As John Maynard Keynes put it, when the inflationary blow-off and collapse that would inevitably result from phony money in conjunction with his economic scheme, was pointed out to him...
"The long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead."
He is. We aren't.

”Virtually the entire field of professional journalism participates with the Democrat Party in achieving Marxist goals in America, and in the world.”
You paint with a very broad brush. You seem to be inclined to making broad sweeping generalities rather than precise statements.

Yes, when the situation calls for it. To get a degree in Journalism in America today is to get yourself steeped in anti-American pro-Marxian ideology as a starting point. That’s what happens in American universities today. I submit that most American journalists would struggle, and would need to pre-study, just to properly articulate the basic, foundational American ideas. But they could instantly babble on about the horrors of “unrestrained Capitalism” and the grand utopian ideals of Marx. I refer you to the Professional Liars page, refuting establishment journalism, and to all the articles in the right column of that page supplying my evidences.

I only started reading your "epistles" recently and as a poor Irish catholic - there are a lot of us around in the Emerald isle which is no longer the stronghold of the faith it once was - I must say I find them enlightening and uplifting in these terrible times.
Keep up the good work.....What are your relations like with the clerics of the church.....have you encountered any opposition. God bless, keep thinking and typing.

Thank you, and welcome aboard.
My relations in my own little local Church and with my own Pastor are excellent. You can read about my unhappy experiences in the approach to the deaconate in this archdiocese under a previous liberal archbishop, in among the pages listed in the Refuting Perverted Catholicism pages in the right-column links on all pages.
We have a new archbishop now, and so far I have no real insight into his teaching, or if he has changed the official teaching in his particular Church, whether for the better or for the worse.
In my case, I was "not invited" to the deaconate program due to being "too rigid in my doctrine", as if it were my doctrine. I can live with that. But I could never swear obedience to any bishop who teaches error in Catholic doctrine, or allows error to be taught in his name.
