Obama statements on capitalism echoed by Occupy movement and 1984, Obama Hyde Park Citizen 1995 interview, Income inequality, Orwellian lies

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”...Karl Marx

“all animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”…George Orwell, “Animal Farm”

“I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”…Barack Obama

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984″

From reading some of the “occupy” comments some of them appear to be in favor of a more pure Democracy such as in Switzerland. Switzerland is a much smaller, more homogenous society and it seems to work there, although one of my friends from Switzerland points out that referendums can be called for any reason and often are. Some form of capitalism is the only approach to have ever been successful in the long term. Examples of failed socialist societies are plentiful. Even Communist China is embracing capitalism. It just makes sense. You work hard and reap the fruits of your labor.

Excessive government control is the problem.

Capitalism is not the problem. It is what built this country and made it great. It is also what enabled us to help save the world from Nazi domination.

Here is how Obama’s view on capitalism emerged and why so many of his followers are anti capitalism.

From Breitbart March 21, 2012.
“In a newly-uncovered interview from the Hyde Park Citizen newspaper circa December 28, 1995, Barack Obama explains his philosophy on income inequality in the United States, especially in light of economic difficulties:

In an environment of scarcity, where the cost of living is rising, folks begin to get angry and bitter and look for scapegoats. Historically, instead of looking at the top 5% of this country that controls all the wealth, we turn towards each other, and the Republicans have added to the fire.

In that interview, Obama explains that his perspective on the “top 5%” was shaped by his experiences abroad:

It’s about power. My travels made me sensitive to the plight of those without power and the issues of class and inequalities as it relates to wealth and power. Anytime you have been overseas in these so-called third world countries, one thing you see is the vast disparity of wealth of those who are part of power structure and those outside of it.

These comments are reminiscent of both the most radical Occupy Wall Street rhetoric and Obama’s infamous comments in San Francisco in April 2008 in which he stated that Americans suffering difficult economic times “get bitter” and “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.””

From the Occupy Wall Street website:

“The right-wingers often talk about Capitalism being a system of “voluntary agreements” in which all people enjoy the fruits of their labor. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Now, I touched upon the “fruits of one’s labor”- issue in the article “The Free Ride Society”, arguing that these “fruits” aren’t measurable and that we all get much more from society compared to what we contribute ourselves. Another thing that should be addressed in this regard is the issue of exploitation.

One of the hallmarks of capitalism is that the means of production are privately owned by some individuals, while others do not have this ownership. In other words, some own the means of production others are using. So it’s a system in which the ones using the means of production must sell their labor to these owners in order to have a decent life. The owners can then make a profit from other people’s work by just owning. This happens when the value of the worker’s pay is less than the value that was added thru his/her work in the paid hours. That creates a profit for the owner of the means of production who did not create the value, but still gets paid in the form of profit. This profit is hence capital for future investments and more profits. So, the capitalist is making money simply by just owning, not adding or creating value. Since a capitalist economy is based on the need for growth and profits for the investors and owners, this method of exploitation – profiting on other people’s work – is of course used by more or less all of them. This exploitation is in other words just a logical result caused by the capitalist system. And we see this all over the place, from poor indonesian girls working in Nike factories for 50 cents an hour, to people in America working for minimum wage for companies whose profits are skyrocketing.

http://johnpilger.com/videos/the-new-rulers-of-the-world

Now, the agreements taking place in this kind of system are of course far from being voluntary. In a capitalist / state-capitalist class society, you have some people with huge wealth and recourses – which on the national and global level are very highly concentrated – and others with very few or no wealth and resources. It is of course meaningless to talk about “voluntary agreements” in such a society, because the ones owning the recourses, the wealth and the means of production etc, have much more power in society. That includes of course that they have the advantage and overwhelming power in a job hiring, negotiations etc. So the non-owners – the workers – are trapped in a society in which they, in order to have a decent life or necessities in order to survive, must sell their labor to people who have much more power than they. This has very little to do with voluntary agreements, rather it’s submission to necessities.

So in reality we have a system in which some people, because of their wealth and ownership, have an overwhelming power in society, including in the labor marked. The owners, the employers, then have much more influence and power when contracts and agreements are being made, whether it’s in relation to working conditions, salaries etc.

This is intolerable. This exploitative unjust system must be dismantled and replaced with democracy in which the people are in control of their own lives, work and community.”

Citizen Wells began warning in 2008 that the Obama camp and far left were employing tactics reminiscent of “1984” by George Orwell.

Another example from Orwell:

“But in among all this terrible poverty there were just a few great big beautiful houses that were lived in by rich men who had as many as thirty servants to look after them. These rich men were called capitalists. They were fat, ugly men with wicked faces, like the one in the picture on the opposite page. You can see that he is dressed in a long black coat which was called a frock coat, and a queer, shiny hat shaped like a stovepipe, which was called a top hat. This was the uniform of the capitalists, and no one else was allowed to wear it. The capitalists owned everything in the world, and everyone else was their slave. They owned all the land, all the houses, all the factories, and all the money. If anyone disobeyed them they could throw them into prison, or they could take his job away and starve him to death. When any ordinary person spoke to a capitalist he had to cringe and bow to him, and take off his cap and address him as ‘Sir’. The chief of all the capitalists was called the King, and —

But he knew the rest of the catalogue. There would be mention of the bishops in their lawn sleeves, the judges in their ermine robes, the pillory, the stocks, the treadmill, the cat-o’-nine tails, the Lord Mayor’s Banquet, and the practice of kissing the Pope’s toe. There was also something called the jus primae noctis, which would probably not be mentioned in a textbook for children. It was the law by which every capitalist had the right to sleep with any woman working in one of his factories.

How could you tell how much of it was lies? It might be true that the average human being was better off now than he had been before the Revolution. The only evidence to the contrary was the mute protest in your own bones, the instinctive feeling that the conditions you lived in were intolerable and that at some other time they must have been different.”

“He reached down and scratched his ankle again. Day and night the telescreens bruised your ears with statistics proving that people today had more food, more clothes, better houses, better recreations — that they lived longer, worked shorter hours, were bigger, healthier, stronger, happier, more intelligent, better educated, than the people of fifty years ago. Not a word of it could ever be proved or disproved. The Party claimed, for example, that today 40 per cent of adult proles were literate: before the Revolution, it was said, the number had only been 15 per cent. The Party claimed that the infant mortality rate was now only 160 per thousand, whereas before the Revolution it had been 300 — and so it went on. It was like a single equation with two unknowns. It might very well be that literally every word in the history books, even the things that one accepted without question, was pure fantasy. For all he knew there might never have been any such law as the jus primae noctis, or any such creature as a capitalist, or any such garment as a top hat.”

From the Occupy quote above:

“The right-wingers often talk about Capitalism being a system of “voluntary agreements” in which all people enjoy the fruits of their labor. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth.”

The actual truth is that left wingers in this country are the big government, anti capitalism proponents. They want to take from you and your hard work and give it to someone else.

  17. Are Republicans Too Nice To Obama?

    (quote)
    And as for Barack Obama, courageous Party elders were quite unconcerned with his deliberate trampling of the Constitution, destruction of the economy or trading billions of tax dollars for campaign kickbacks. “Look, if you go after the president, you’re going to be called a racist,” said the Mitch McConnells and John Boehners of the Party.
    (snip)
    From advising members of an eager, conservative incoming 2010 freshman Republican class to “be a team player” and “just play along” to putting the skids on any hope of filing criminal charges against Attorney General Eric Holder for his many Fast and Furious misdeeds, John Boehner and the rest of the Republican hierarchy have done everything in their power to destroy the spirit of a Republican majority whose duty should be the exposure and removal of a criminal Administration.

  18. The above situation is what bothers me tremendously about Mitt Romney, who has publicly said when interviewed about Obama’s socialism, “I just think he is in over his head.”

    If he wins the nomination, and puts on the soft gloves like that, the Obama team will shred him to pieces. They already have plans to push the class warfare bit to the hilt. Can Romney wage a convincing fight?

    Bob, can you please cite any links of information about this if you have any here? Thank you.

  21. Cabby,
    Romney can wage a convincing fight – IF he goes there. My thoughts are directed toward the VP pick. Do we push the envelope and embrace Rubio – who we know to be ineliible? We can’t, right? Or do we do unto others? I hope Mitt chooses wisely and supports Arpaio while selecting a solid candidate for a running mate. Newt cannot be uninformed. We KNOW he is not.

  22. Katie,
    The problem is the big “IF” with Romney. Many fear being labeled a “racist” by the media.

    I can’t support Rubio for V.P. because he can’t meet the NBC qualification. The problem that we are seeing with so many is that they put their perceived, personal political status above our country’s constitution, which they swear to uphold.

  23. Don’t forget Mama Barb Bush wants son Jed to be VP if Romney wins. She said this in an interview a while ago. The snod remark for Sarah to stay in Alaska. Well I have a middle finger for that old hag! Sorry but I have never liked her.

    btw….I would give Putin a big hug and a kiss if he would send me a copy of Barry’s PASS PORT! 🙂

    You go girl

  28. Ginger | March 22, 2012 at 11:13 pm |
    observer…I heard that and did you notice how quiet every one was?
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Sure did. Andrea (tarantula as Rush calls her) must not have gotten the word!! I thought Dana Perino would have a case of the vapors! She’s really a fence sitter PC princess!

  29. Dana Perino is to be discounted. Blech – comes to mind. She rides high with her press position with Bush and is a PC sell out on all matters poignant and controversial.

  30. Let the candidates continue to chew on one another. Let them hone their meat eating skills for the big dance. Romney has come further right since the primaries and has debate skills sharpened. If any of you ever played a collegiate sport – it’s called to “pique” – and Romney has just now piqued. ABO. And Romney is there.

  31. Cabby AZ…………….
    You know…….everybody talks about Newt’s BAGGAGE. I guess that is fair game. Marital problems. But I can’t help wonder just what the hell everybody would think was BAGGAGE from a MORMON whose church advocates sex with children and more than one wife. What sort of BAGGAGE is that. I think that Tina is about the only commenter who has wondered the same thing. That said then who really has the HEAVIER BAGGAGE? FDR,and John Kennedy both had MARITAL problems, but i’ll be damned if I can remember anybody accusing Kennedyor FDR of having sex with children,or more than one wife.

  32. …………perhaps “etch a scetch” can explain this for us. This also makes Newts alleged problems somehow seem a bit diminished. I would have to say that HELLS BELLS Slick Willy got it on with MMMSSS. “BLUE DRESS”,and all the women voters thought that this made him a REAL MAN. In reality he was a classic example of a PISS POOR MAN.

  33. Well,
    We have to choose. BUT, we know it has to be AyoneButObama. Newt could debate O’s socks off, Santorum might do the same; Paul is comic relief (and should never have been reduced to that). That leaves Mitt. Dear friends, it all boils down to ABO. I know the Tea Party is waiting for the candidate to be chosen. At that point, look out. We can’t give one hoot about baggage at this stage of the game. ABO.

  34. ………….then THE PISS POOR MAN LIES TO the CONGRESSIONAL GRAND JURY, making him a PISS POOR POTUS. Now we have a carbon copy of the PISS POOR MAN,illegally occupying the WH,making the occupier a PISS POOR LEADER.

  35. REMEMBER KATIE……..Newt has baggage. But at least he has yet to belong to a church that advocates sex with children, and having multiple wives. Isn’t there an LDS (MORMON) alleged leader now serving big time for himself being a perpetrator of such a life style? Newt’s marital problems seem to PALE by comparison.

  36. BYE BYE All Time for me to BURN ANOTHER Quaran.

  37. Old Salt, you rock! Good night.

  38. Folks are on fire tonight. Great comments.

  39. Katie,
    Thanks for the kind words. You ask about my choice for VP? I just don’t know really. I like Allen West. I think a military person would make up for Romney’s lack in that field. Whom do you prefer? We certainly don’t need Jeb Bush or a Chris Christie either.

    I surely agree with you about Dana Perino on The Five. She is a nice person, I believe, but her views are something else.

  40. Sent this to Andrea:

    I agree with your outrage regarding the progressive takeover of our schools. I have had three kids go through public schools here in IL and the indoctrination was oppressive. They each broke out at college and learned much more where teachers were not encouraged to propagandize and the free market kept them in line.

    I liked your analogy of making the kids search for the Kenyan BC. I am one of the MAJORITY of Americans who do not believe the narrative. I actually believe your President is not a US citizen, but an alien. I fully support Sheriff Arpaio. I believe We the People will prevail and Mr Obama will resign and not finish his term over the scandal.

    I hope Fox allows you to keep your job. Everyone knows Fox and News Corp are on the take with the current administration. This is the biggest story in the history of America. You and your peers are destroying the free press by failing to cover it.

  41. Bill G,
    Fine letter to Andrea! I hope it resonates with her.
    Your point, “your peers are destroying the free press by failing to cover it”, is along the lines which I have been pondering of late.

    We know that our Founding Fathers were convinced that as long as we had a free press there would be assurance that falsehood and other wrongdoing would be exposed and ultimately routed out of government. The First Amendment was the step they took to insure that the government could not abridge free speech.

    Now what we have increasingly seen especially beginning in 2008 is the effect of newsmen imposing limitations on themselves, simply because the majority are progressives and cover up for all things Obama. In other words, the suppression of truth is being accomplished largely because the media itself is failing to cover the news, as you say.

    Of course, now we are seeing the heavy hand of government also putting pressure on the media, but this never would have happened IF they hadn’t already ceased to fulfill their duty. Just pondering……

  42. Bill G…………………..
    Great work. About time somebody laid out the truth about our public school systems through the US. While you were commenting only with reference to your Illinois school system, the reality is that ALL of the US public school systems have been infiltrated by the IMMORALLY INEPT PROGRESSIVE crowd,whose PREOCCUPATION with DEVIANT sex with children is WELL KNOWN. One of the states that is probably advanced further than all of the rest is Connecticut. Here is a TOTALLY OFF THE WALL,and really screwed up school system. It was in Connecticut that 1st graders were given CONDOMS to play with. This sort of thing speaks volumes with regard to the morality of the people in control of the Connecticut public school system. It was in Connecticut that TEACHERS started having sex with their students. In fact one ex teacher even chose to marry her student lover.

  43. …………the NEW MORALITY of our young overeducated teachers seems to say “If it don’t move…PAINT it….if it moves HAVE SEX WITH IT. Could that be the NEW MORALITY OF THE PROGRESSIVES AS WELL?

  44. ………..our alleged SOS puts me in mind of such a person. Lately there has been a lot of questions regarding her MORALITY as well.

  45. BYE BYE all……Time to read some more about the Connecticut public school teachers.

  48. A little good news. I recently got my new US Passport. I was dreading opening the envelope. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Obama’s face was not plastered all over this critical document. If fact, such defacement was nowhere to be found.

    However, I would love to see all of Obama’s passports.

    What you describe applies to Muslims as well, when it comes to having sex with children.

    It’s also applied to Catholics, Congress, Presidents (John DeCamps-The Franklin Cover-Up). The list is endless.

  56. When you e-mail The 5 you are sending it to all five of them. Can’t remember which one said it but that person said they ALL read the e-mails. It was around that time Bob Beckel was throwing candy down Andrea’s dress and twice she made a comment about it. Well I sent Bob an e-mail…well all of them… and told Bob to grow up that what he was doing was considered sexual harrassment! I also ask him to tone down his potty mouth. hehehe
    Richard Lugar knows what is on Barry’s passport. 🙂

  57. OldSalt79 – I don’t have any idea how many passports Obama may have. Regarding the P3 – It was/is a great plane. Wings were not as stiff as P2 so it wouldn’t beat you to death. I’ve been in it in big storms, 500 ft alt.., middle of Atlantic, 20 or so years old and bullet proof, hungover once or twice, tracking submarines (USSR).

  58. It may be time to bring it back. Thanks

  59. I do miss those old Navy days. I don’t think I (my liver) would have survived 20 years in the military.

  60. Obama’s Agents False Spin on INS and Citizenship – Native born and Natural Born Have Different Status and Definitions
