Obama File 102 America’s Little Lenin? Joel Rogers and the Obama Movement.

Obama file 101 here

It is becoming increasingly clear that Barack Obama did not create a movement. A movement created Barack Obama.


One of the key leaders of that movement is a Madison, Wisconsin, law professor and sociologist – Joel Rogers.

While not widely known outside “progressive” circles, few people have exercised more influence in more strands of the movement that selected and elected Barack Obama, than has Joel Rogers.

Obama’s former “Green Jobs” Czar, the Marxist-Leninist Van Jones has been part of Rogers’ network for some years.

Rogers has served with Jones on the board of the Apollo Alliance , a radical led coalition of green groups and labor unions that had considerable input in writing Obama’s massive “stimulus package”. Rogers has served as Senior Policy Adviser to Jones’ Oakland based Green For All – the Northern California affiliate of the Apollo Alliance.

In the video below Van Jones, takes time in his address to the January 2009 Mayors Innovation Project conference to praise his friend Rogers.

Jones points out three “great gifts” that Joel Rogers “has given our movement”.

Firstly, there is “a new economic model …high road development …the best thinking that he represents is now reflected in the White House.”

Secondly , “...the New Party, which is now the Working Families Party…the idea of a ‘new politics’ that you could actually have in this country bringing together labor, civil rights, feminists…and actually make a difference…is the basic framework for what just took over the White House.”

Thirdly, …”his idea of a new energy paradigm. His founding the Apollo Alliance. I believe the stimulus is going to put something like $80 billion in this direction…”

Jones credits Rogers with dreaming up the White House economic model – basically a 21st century “green” version of corporate socialism. Rogers also allegedly masterminded the electoral alliance that put Obama in the driver’s seat. He then founded the organization that helped write the “stimulus bill”, which is now funneling billions into a movement primarily designed to keep the Obama and the Democrats in power.

That’s a lot of influence for one man. Does Van Jones exaggerate? Let’s investigate.

The New Party which Rogers and Dan Cantor founded in the early 90s, was an attempt to to unite the poor, Blacks, Latinos , labor and “community groups” to work with and inside the Democratic Party to elect large numbers of leftist candidates to public office.

The party was essentially amalgam of four organizations -radical Washington DC “think tank” the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA),Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

The first strategic meetings to plan the New Party were held in Joel Rogers’ home in Madison Wisconsin in the very early 1990s. Present were Rogers’ wife Sarah Siskind, Dan Cantor (now leading the New party spin-off Working Families Party in New York) , ACORN leaders Wade Rathke , Zach Polett , Steve Kest and Jon Kest and IPS linked activists Steve Cobble , Harriet Barlow and Sam Pizzigati .

The very first meeting included Gerry Hudson from DSA and SEIU and early ACORN leader and IPS affiliate Gary DelgadoAnthony Thigpenn, from Los Angeles was also approached, but though supportive, did not wish to play a leadership role.

Incidentally, both Delgagdo and Thigpenn were later supporters of Van Jones’ anti Iraq War magazine War Times.

The party was socialist in character, but only revealed its true nature to friends.
In March 28-30 1997 Democratic Socialists of America convened their annual Socialists Scholars Conference at Borough of Manhattan Community College, New York. Barack Obama, incidentally, attended some of these conferences in the early 1980s.
The 1997 conference was themed “Radical alternatives on the eve of the millenium”.
Invitees were asked to join the debate on “changes in the labor movement, Marxist theory, the state of the economy, market socialism, and other areas where theory and practice meet…listen to the United States’ only independent and socialist congressman, Rep. Bernie Sanders…”dialogue with Joel Rogers of the New Party… “
Barack Obama joined the New Party in Chicago, during his 1995 Illinois State Senate run. Obama was also a leader of the Chicago New Party sister organization ,Progressive Chicago, as far back as 1993. Other Progressive Chicago leaders includedKeith Kelleher of SEIU and ACORN, Kelleher’s wife, Madeline Talbott (ACORN) and Ron SableDanny K . Davis and Lou Pardo of DSA.

The New Party relied on “fusion” voting for its success. Candidates ran on both the Democrat and New Party lines, combing the vote totals from both. This practice was illegal in many states, so in 1997, Rogers and his wife Sarah Siskind took a case to the Supreme Court seeking to overturn the state bans.


According to the The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel December 5, 1996;

With allusions to possible electoral chaos, justices of the U.S. Supreme Court expressed skepticism Wednesday over an effort to overturn 40 state laws that forbid nominations of the same candidate by more than one political party.

The high court heard arguments in a case from Minnesota that was orchestrated by a Wisconsin couple Joel Rogers, a University of Wisconsin-Madison law professor, and his wife, Madison attorney Sarah E. Siskind.

Rogers is a co-founder and national chair of the New Party, which describes itself as progressive and claims 10,000 members nationwide. The party has elected candidates for local offices in Wisconsin and elsewhere.

The case failed and ‘”fusion” voting was ruled unconstitutional. Deprived of its main tactic, the New Party, went into sharp decline, surviving under the Working Families Party banner in New York and a few other states.

Coincidentally, Sarah Siskind worked for the the Madison Wisconsin office of Barack Obama’s Chicago law firm, Miner, Barnhill and Galland.

In 2002 Sarah Siskind represented ACORN in a successful class action against sub-prime mortgage lender Household Finance Corporation.

According to Miner, Barnhill and Galland.;

For the last ten years, the firm (principally Sarah Siskind) has also represented individual consumers and organizational plaintiffs in class action lawsuits challenging predatory lending practices. These include a series of deceptive practices actions brought in Illinois, California and Massachusetts against Household Finance Corporation, and recently consolidated in In re Household Lending Litigation, Case No. C-02-1240 and Related Cases, N.D. Ca.) and settled for $152 million in benefits and future practice change relief…


Siskind won a settlement against Household Finance Corporation which gave delinquent borrowers interest rate reductions, waivers of unpaid late charges, deferral of accrued unpaid interest and principal reductions.

It was a socialist “win-win” situation. Siskind and Miner, Barhill & Galland made money, ACORN was able to force another mortgage lender to make more soft loans to its “core constituency” and the 2008 sub-prime mortgage collapse was brought one step closer.

Some commentators have surmised that some socialists leftists, working through ACORN and similar groups may have deliberately promoted sub- prime lending as a way of creating economic chaos, thereby provoking a subsequent increase in government involvement in the economy.

They point to the now famous Cloward-Piven Strategy devised in th e 1960s by Richard Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven. The “Cloward-Piven” plan involved enrolling as many people as possible onto state welfare programs. The point was to overload and collapse the state systems, leading to a Federal takeover of welfare.

Interestingly, when Richard Cloward died in 2001, 500 people gathered at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City to celebrate his life and work. Speakers included Frances Fox Piven, Barbara EhrenreichCornel West, (all New Party founders and DSA members) Gus Newport (DSA member) Howard Zinn (New Party founder) , Joel Rogers and Miles Rapoport.

Coincidentally Rapoport was the president of the New York based “think tank” Demos, an official partner organization of the Institute for Policy Studies and a close ally of ACORN.


Barack Obama helped establish Demos in 1999-2000 and became a Trustee of the organization. Van Jones also later served as a Demos Trustee, but is currently on leave.

In 1998 Chicago DSA activist and IPS affiliate James Weinstein presided over a major Chicago “Back to Basics” conference designed to re-align the U.S. left back to “class politics”

To explore how we (the Left) can increase our presence in the mainstream of American political and intellectual life.

Speakers included Dr. Quentin Young (DSA member , New Party founder , Barack Obama long time friend , mentor and physician) Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz (a San Francisco based activist and comrade of Van Jones’), plus DSA comrades Christine Riddiough,Joseph Schwartz and Roberta Lynch.

Joel Rogers, founder of The New Party, listed people’s concerns: education, campaign finance reform, environment, raising the minimum wage, and concern about global capitalism. Neither Democrats nor Republicans take this list seriously. Liberalism relied on favorable government regulation and mass politics to deal with problems. A new time calls for new politics, emphasizing economic strategy, citizen participation, and electoral strategy.

In 2004, Joel Rogers from the Center On Wisconsin Strategy, and Robert Borosage from IPS enlisted DSA friendly Steelworkers President Leo Gerard and SEIU President Andy Stern, to propose a new alliance of labor, environmental groups, business and “social justice” leaders – the Apollo Alliance. The Alliance, which soon included over 200 supporting organizations, released a report “High Road or Low Road? Job Quality in the New Green Economy” arguing for a ten-year program of investment in a “clean energy, good jobs” economy.”

Joel Rogers was the Alliance’s founding chairman and continues to serve on its board. Borosage is also a board member, as is Leo Gerard. John Podesta from the Center for American Progress also serves, but took a break while co-chairing President Obama’s “transition”, where he 

“coordinated the priorities of the incoming administration’s agenda, oversaw the development of its policies, and spearheaded its appointments of major cabinet secretaries and political appointees.”

Podesta also looked after another Apollo Alliance board member Van Jones, giving him a job with Center for American Progress , when Jones was forced to exit the White House.

Besides Rogers, two old New Party affiliates are involved in the Apollo Alliance. Gerry Hudson of DSA and SEIU serves as a board member. Anthony Thigpenn serves on the Apollo Alliance advisory board and runs the Apollo affiliate in Los Angeles – which trains “anti racist environmental organizers.”

Thigpenn is a former member of the Maoist leaning Black Panther Party, but that’s pretty mild by Apollo standards. The former head of the New York Apollo Alliance Jeff Jones, once led the terrorist Weather Underground Organization with he and President Obama’s ‘s mutual friends , Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Former DSA youth leader and SEIU organizer Ron Ruggiero, serves as Apollo Alliance National Field Director.

It’s a safe bet that a good portion of the “stimulus package” $80 Billion dollars will be going to Van Jones’ Green For All in San Francisco in San Francisco, to Anthony Thigpenn’s “environmental anti racism” trainers in Los Angeles and Jeff Jones’ former crew in New York.


Any good Leninist will tell you. It is not gaining power that is important, it is the KEEPING of power.

Joel Rogers’ New Party, modeled the movement that put Obama in power. His Apollo Alliance provides a means for holding that power.

It is essentially a massive patronage system, where huge amounts of taxpayer’s money is channeled into radical led “green” camouflaged mass organizations.

These “green” armies will be the vote herders of the future. They will confront the Tea Party movement and other patriots on the streets of America. They will be the paramilitary armies used to intimidate the very people who fund them.

In a January 2 2009, tribute to late to Democratic Socialists of America founder Michael Harrington, Gerry Hudson of the Apollo Alliance/SEIU/DSA wrote;

It’s tragic for so many reasons that Michael died too young; his voice and his wisdom are sorely needed. How he would marvel at the election of Barack Obama and the promise that this victory affords all of us on the democratic left! He is sorely missed. But were he alive, I would hope—and expect, that he and others who are informed by this vision of democratic socialism would join with us in SEIU as we seek to take advantage of a moment most of us have spent our lifetimes only dreaming of.

Joel Rogers is the glue that ties many of these threads together – Institute for Policy Studies, Democratic Socialists of America , ACORN, SEIU, New Party, the Apollo Alliance – even possibly the sub -prime mortgage crisis.

I believe, had there been no Joel Rogers, there likely would have been no President Barack Obama

>Obama and His Lottery-Winner Syndrome

>What would be the chance in politics of a real rags to riches story? Who would have thought that a well educated, but relatively poor, young man from South Chicago could become president? What kind of odds would there be for a community organizer to strike the political mother load prize of all elections, the White House? Practically unthinkable, but yet that is what has happened in our lifetimes.

Indeed, this “poor man — rich man” scenario actually happened. Before he came on the scene no one thought it possible. He was a man who through a series of fortuitous events, a strange accident of luck and fortune for him, was able to get elected and became a do-nothing State of Illinois legislator in Springfield, Illinois — a man who drank beer and played cards at night with powerful legislators to get “on the in” with these party bosses. He produced scant legislation, and one wonders if there was a plan to this apparent ineptitude which would make it possible for him to have little or no record to run on or against when he decided to run for the U.S. Senate.

After two years in the Senate the record shows that again he failed to create much of a leadership name for himself — he was a do-nothing Senator — but it was then that he started running for president — ultimately winning the national election and becoming president?

It’s almost the stuff of fairy tales. It is so far-fetched it couldn’t have just happened, it had to have been orchestrated, including the outrageous amount of political funding he was privately able to amass with outside help. History tells us that this black Arab man’s white mother was poor and she couldn’t have sent him to college, certainly not to Harvard and Columbia.

We knew little about Obama’s school writings, he sealed the record. He was president of the law review and admits that there were articles that he authored, which is normal and which could have revealed his character and political leanings and where he would take the country if elected president.

Research does tell us he had a private Arab donor who footed his college bills. It also tells us that he had grown up essentially fatherless, except for a black communist Muslim friend of his mother who was in their home often, a communist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, someone who had taken Barak Husein Obama to a Muslim mosque for indoctrination at an early age, something he will not admit even to this day. He even denies any communist or Muslim influence or background, but the facts are clear. There is a history of this guy “Frank” in Obama’s life, a man whom even Obama admits was often in his home. He was a communist leader in Hawaii and the facts don’t lie that there was this relationship.

Not only has he sealed his school writings, but his actual birth certificate, called a “vault” record because he has apparently paid someone off in Hawaii to seal this record from public scrutiny. He did produce a phony computer copy that states he was born in Hawaii, but if that is so why won’t he produce the actual “vault” copy which we believe would have revealed he was born in Kenja, Africa where his father lived, making him ineligible to run for the presidency.

Why didn’t he reveal either the birth certificate or his writings? Because they would have made it impossible for him to become elected because of the restriction that a presential candidate must have been born in the United States or in one of its territories and to reveal his past writings would have revealed him as a liar, a man who actually favored government ownership of banks, insurance companies, automakers and all sorts of means of production, something which is becoming abundantly clear each day of his administration.

Why don’t I just say it? It would have uncovered the facade of Americanism and fealty and patriotism to the U.S. flag and Constitution; and it would have revealed an out-and-out communist — not just a socialist or a sympathizer of communism — but the communist that he is. Even with all of this information, we have barely scratched the surface of who this man Barak Husein Obama really is. Who in the Societ Union does he most earnestly want to emulate? How will he get on next week when the financial Group of Twenty meet and he has a chance to talk to one of the most successful communist leaders in the world, Hu Jintao. How they get on should shed further light on where he plans to take America during these coming dangerous days.

The chances of a man or woman like this ascending to the highest office in the land are slim to none, except if someone mentored and backed him financially. That would be two separate persons. Originally that someone, we believe, was an Arab prince who funded his college education. There are no free rides in this life, so one must wonder what favors he owes this man in return for his generosity? And what about the rich man who actually paid the lion’s share of his three-quarter million political campaign fund raising which totally overwhelmed his opponent, Senator John McCain. If my statements are in error, I would invite President Obama to set the record straight with an accurate and independent audit and report of what I believe was a most fraudulent and dishonest campaign starting with the funding and ending with the favors he must owe individuals and countries across the globe.

The poor man’s name, of course was Barak Hussein Obama, the middle name of which he shuns even to this day for obvious political reasons. He has tried to disassociate himself from Islam and the Muslim movement, even for 20 years associating with a branch of the Church of Christ in Chicago and the bombastic, outspoken critic of the U.S., Rev. Jeramiah Wright whom under constant fire from critics he repudiated, finally leaving that church.

Obama curried favor with a convicted felon gangster, Tony Rezko, who had much to do with his financial ability to purchase his home in South Chicago. He also associated with a known terrorist, William Ayers, and his terrorist wife Bernardine Dohrn, but he disavows knowing them very well despite the fact that he started his campaign for the state senate in their house. Is it any wonder this president has had such a terribly hard time finding honest people to name to important positions in his administration. Half a dozen of his “vetted” personalities had not paid their taxes, including his treasury secretary Timothy Gaithner who owed more than $40,000 including interest, a man who is now chief tax collector in America. That history would usually disqualify such a man for this office, and now because of his many gaffes and lack of success, many are calling for Gaithner’s resignation. Several proposed appointments had scandalous pasts, including New Mexico governor Richardson.

Obama is member of the liberal Democratic Party in America which only too well remembers the 9/11 attacks and the atrocities of taking down the World Trade Center, an attempted suicide collision with the Pentagon and the White House, resulting in killing 3,000 Americans, a carefully planed heinous attack perpetrated by Arab nationals mainly from Saudi Arabia, an attack for which international terrorist Osama Bin Laden takes full credit, a man who is at large today somewhere in the Afghan hills planning another strike on American soil. If he has his way, this time it will be with the use of a nuclear weapon, thanks to the willing assistance of Iran and maybe the knowledge of a man who may become known as the most natorous traitor of all time Barak Obama.

Those are strong words. I would invite you to read the blog, Advance Indiana for further detail: “His name as a young child was changed to Barry Soetoro when his mother married Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro and moved to Jakarta. Indonesian school records state that Obama was an Indonesian citizen and not an American citizen and that his religion was Islam and not Christian, protestations by Obama to the contrary notwithstanding. When or how Obama acquired U.S. citizenship or changed his name back to Barack Hussein Obama is unclear. A birth certificate produced by the Obama campaign was determined by several document experts to be a forged document.

“We know from his autobiography that he had Muslim roommates in college of foreign nationality. Now it turns out that an influential, radical black Muslim with close ties to the Saudi royal family and an outspoken opponent of Israel helped finance Obama’s law school education. Obama’s benefactor at the young age of 25 is Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tariq alMansour a/k/a Donald Warden. Here are some facts you should know about alMansour according to a Newmax investigative report:

  • “He is well known within the black community as a lawyer, an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an author, an international deal-maker, an educator, and an outspoken enemy of Israel.”
  • In a 1995 book, “The Lost Books of Africa Rediscovered,” he alleged that the United States was plotting genocide against black Americans.
  • He was the mentor of Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale.
  • Al-Mansour’s more recent videotaped speeches focus on Muslim themes, and abound with anti-Semitic theories and anti-Israel vitriol.
  • At the same time he was raising money for Obama’s education he was representing top members of the Saudi Royal family seeking to do business and exert influence in the United States.
  • He advises Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in his U.S. investments. Prince Talal is most famous for offering $10 million to the City of New York following 9/11, a contribution turned down by Mayor Rudy Giuliani because the Prince said American policies were to blame for the terrorist attacks. [Study some of the anti-American comments Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is making as she travels to different countries. Now in Mexico she is stating that the problems Mexico is having with Narco gangs is partly America’s fault. I am wondering what she will say to Chinese leaders if North Korea shoots off a missile that kills Americans in Alaska?].
  • “Prince Alwaleed has made tens of millions in contributions to Muslim-American charities, some of whose leaders have been charged by our government with terrorism-related ties. Prince Alwaleed also donates millions to Harvard for Islamic studies.

Newmax sought a response from the Obama campaign about the financial assistance Obama received from alMansour, but the campaign refused to respond. This disclosure came in a very unlikely fashion. Percy Sutton, a prominent African-American businessman, was being interviewed when he described how he first came to know Obama. “I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter. “The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid alMansour, from Texas,” Sutton said. “He is the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama.” “Sutton, the founder of Inner City Broadcasting, said alMansour contacted him to ask a favor: Would Sutton write a letter in support of Obama’s application to Harvard Law School?”

“Think about how many mainstream media reports there have been this past week trying to link Gov. Sarah Palin to the Alaskan Independence Party, which supports secession from the United States. Yet, this revelation about Obama’s past received no attention from the news media. Why? Obama critic Andy Martin thinks the revelation is a big one. “This latest disclosure may be the ‘smoking gun’ that discredits Obama and destroys his candidacy.” [Obviously it didn’t] “And I think I know where it came from. I honestly do not see Obama surviving financial links to a close adviser of a member of the Saudi Arabia monarchy, not when Saudis were the instigators of 9/11.” “Even a slight link to Saudi money would disqualify anyone from the presidency in the mind of almost every American.” I agree with Martin that it is a big revelation. But this American news media has already decided Obama is The One.”

But who was it that put the political ideas into Obama’s head, or was it a combination of people? It is difficult for any reasoning person to believe that suddenly three-quarters of a million Americans on the Internet donated each one thousand dollars toward his election — or that twice that number donated five hundred dollars. He claims most of his donations were of the one or two-dollar variety, so the number of Internet supporters would have to approach a million. The election laws are so loosly managed in America that, despite evidence of voting fraud, even to this day we the public do not know for sure what happened. But we do know that many of the donations were bogus, even coming in with comic names like Spiderman. That much has been documented elsewhere. Voting commission fraud doesn’t seem to be a thing that the Democrat-controlled Congtress or publicly funded ACORN wants to get into when it affects the eligibility of one of its own, Mr. Obama. ACORN itself is rife with corruption. It is really an arm of the Democratic Party funded by all American taxpayers, which is scandalous and shameful.

And what about those bus visits to Connecticut homes of those AIG execs who received Barak Obama, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd-sanctioned bonuses despite the fact America bailed AIG out? Acorn is founder of The Working Families Party, the group that hired a bunch of poor people to picket and shout obscenities in front of these homes, intimidating these AIG employees and putting them up to national ridicule,shame and scorn. But did they do the same to Franklin Raines, former president of Fannie Mae who walked away with obscene bonuses and salary of over $90 million in only six years of incredibly poor management, a performance that helped cause the meltdown in the first place?

ACORN is the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. While in Chicago, Obama was one of their trainers and could have put them up to this nonsense.

The scorn, ridicule, and rage started with the Congress and the president. It was a cover up for their own mistakes and ineptitude in voting for the AIG bonuses in the first place and for failing to read the bills they actually voted for. Allegations of voter fraud against ACORN are not trumped up, they are real. And why in the world in America should the taxpayers foot the bills for a partisan Democratic front group known as ACORN? While it is true they gave part of the money they got from us taxpayers to Republicans, it was a very minor part compared to that which they forked out to Democrat candidates including Obama.

When Obama started his quest for the presidency, Las Vegas gambling houses would have given him a one in a million chance of prevailing over Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Primary, then an even poorer chance of defeating an experienced Senator from Arizona, even a Viet Nam war hero, John McCain, someone with excellent credentials, someone who could have stepped into the presidency and made excellent decisions on day one as commander in chief.

Interestingly, it was in Nevada where Clinton and Obama were running even in the polls. That was before ACORN weighed in and lent Obama a considerable assist, helping to defeat Clinton in a clearly partisan way. Who says we have free elections in America since the advent of Barak Obama? By all rights, Clinton should be president today — or John McCain — had it not been for the publicly funded and highly partisan ACORN.

But Obama pulled off the worst election scam in history. He is president today, but he so much resembles that kid from the poorest part of the country who had nothing — no car, no means, no real job, and suddenly he wins the lottery and becomes filthy rich with fifty million dollars.

This kid lets his new-found wealth go to his head, lots of girl friends, buys expensive cars and a house for his mother and gambles it all away within two months of becoming rich and agains ends up a pauper.

Obama is this poor kid made rich who comes to Washington with nothing better to do than spend, spend, spend malevolently or just because he never had anything himself, we do not know…until like the poor boy who won the lottery, within two months he bankrupts the country while living high on talk shows and giving lavish White House parties, traveling the country each week to townhalls in Airforce One as if it is suddenly 2012 and he’s running for office again.

If you think all of this is fantasy, think again. It is precisely where we stand today as a bankrupt country after this profligate young man, a man who never had anything before coming to Washington, has strong-armed a Democratic congress and has them in his pocket. Congress has passed every bill he has suggested, spent every dime he has urged on them, being as dishonest as he is, not realizing — or maybe he does realize and it’s all part of the grand plan to bring America to its knees — what the multi-zillion-dollar bailouts of banks, Detroit, and now insurance companies and perhaps any corporation or company he likes is doing to our people.

It’s likely that this profligate’s treasury secretary will continue to have his way with an obsequious congress. It continues to suck up to this near-do-well in the White House who with the president’s blessing wields more power than any previous treasury secretary, even power to at a whim declare any private or public company a threat to the economy, thus grabbing or nationalizing this company and that “for the public good” in truly Marxist fashion, the likes of which we haven’t seen in America or even dreamed could happen since those discredited outlaws Hitler and Stalin came to power in Germany and Russia more than sixty years ago.

>Obama Is Trying To Abolish Debate

>Obama’s Reichstag Fire and The Coming Enabling Act
By
Don White

The Republican National Party has called the Democrats’ $787B “stimulus” plan rushed through Congress last week and signed by the president four days later “Barak Obama’s Reichstag Fire.”

Obama and his gang are students of history. Historians point to the Reichstag Fire that gutted the German Parliament house in Berlin on February 27, 1933 as the turning point for the Nazis in gaining enough power to pass what was called an “Enabling Act” or the power to suspend parliament.

The Enabling Act allowed for the establishment of Nazi Germany. When will things be bad enough for Obama to get his enabling act to suspend our freedoms?

Have you noticed that Obama hasn’t smiled much since coming to power? It’s all a ploy. He has done his best to make the financial crisis look insoluble by normal means. His purpose is to, first, spend as much money as possible to pay back campaign promises. That’s where the “bums rush” $787B is going.

He doesn’t want the problem to get solved too soon because a recovering country would spoil everything – his chance to enslave American taxpayers and generations to come. Have you noticed, he has held back a real stimulus bill – one Treasury Secretary Timoth Gaithner promises is still to come? There will be a second – and maybe a third — so called “stimulus” bill of trillion-dollar proportions. That will be the real bill that should have been passed first, because only then will it address the core problems of getting America back on its feet.

When you have a hostage congress, like the Democrat congress, you may not need “an enabling act” to pass freedom-stifling bills.

But Obama wants to serve more than two terms. He wants three or four or five, and that will take an enabling act, because right now we have term limits for presidents. His next act has to be to eliminate term limits. That will come when terrorists are at our door, after they fire some missiles at Washington or other American cities.

So it isn’t in Obama’s interest to fight terrorism like Bush did. He wants porous borders with Mexico, despite the fact that Mexico is near a state of total political collapse, with the drug cartel about to take over. When that happens, as it surely will, how do you keep drug cartel terrorists out of our country? You don’t, not with the cavalier way Obama, has reacted to our border emergency. Expect the Democrats to ask for an additional trillion dollars to bail out Mexico’s drug cartel government.

Whether the Reichstag fire was caused by the Nazis themselves or by the Communist Party which at that time had 17% of the German vote is unimportant for this discussion. But history repeats itself. Just as Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Omanuel called the financial meltdown an opportunity to do things not otherwise possible, Hitler’s words echo the same sentiments in 1933. Hitler called the fire a “sign from heaven”, and claimed the fire was a Fanal (signal) meant to mark the beginning of a Communist Putsch (coup).
Hitler was the Chancellor. His aim was first to acquire a National Socialist majority in order to secure his position and eliminate Communist opposition. Obama’s aim today is to create a one-party system in America and to remove the Republican Party opposition. Hitler hoped to abolish democracy in a more or less legal fashion by passing the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act was a special law which gave the Chancellor the power to pass laws by decree without the involvement of the Reichstag
The fire was used as evidence by the Nazis that the Communists were beginning a ‘plot’ against the German government. Historians disagree as to whether van der Lubbe acted alone or if the Nazis were involved. The responsibility for the Reichstag Fire remains an ongoing topic of debate and research.
Governments love to declare their countries in a “state of national emergency.” That, alone, eliminates much political opposition. But the money the U.S. is spending on the first of Obama’s rescues is meant to cement support for his re-election. The only way to get a two-thirds majority to declare a national emergency is to have 60 Senate votes. This time Obama bought off three vulnerable and very liberal Republicans, Susan Collins and Olympia Snow from Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. Specter got what he wanted out of the deal, $6 Billion for stem cell research, which conservatives and others oppose. Once again, our Constitutional rights of debate in chambers were circumvented.
Watch out, more funny business is coming. Soon, Obama will find a way to get around the Constitutional provisions making us a free people, including freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. Our voting rights have been severely jeopardized with the $3 billion going to ACORN for more Democrat style ”community organizing.” Owning guns will be next, and that will be where citizens stand in large numbers openly rebel.
The day after the fire, Hitler asked for and received from President Hindenburg the Reichstag Fire Decree, signed into law by Hindenburg using Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution. The Reichstag Fire Decree suspended most civil liberties in Germany and was used by the Nazis to ban publications not considered “friendly” to the Nazi cause. Obama has said he will not invoke the so-called :”fairness doctrine”, but don’t believe him. He won’t initiate it, but you can believe the Democrat Congress will and he will make it look like they forced him to administer this law against his will. Watch out, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hanity, Glenn Beck, Michael Medved, Neal Boortz, and Bill O’Reilly. It’s coming.

>Stop Al Franken’s Crooked Election in Minnesota

>An urgent message from our Political Disconnect and Newsmax Sponsor,
The Republican National Lawyers Association

Dear Political Disconnect Reader:
The fix is in!
Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid are planning to certify Al Franken the “winner” in the contested Minnesota seat that Republican Norm Coleman is fighting to keep.
Yesterday a spokesman for Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid said “it appears that Franken will be certified the winner by the state Canvassing Board.”
For weeks after the election Norm Coleman led Franken by hundreds of votes and Reid and company were very quiet.
After Franken raised millions and waged a fierce legal battle over a handful of rejected ballots, he claims he is ahead of Coleman by about 50 votes.
The Democrats want to seize on this claim and parachute Al Franken into the U.S. Senate.
The Democrats may use this dubious “certification” to actually seat Franken in the Senate on January 6 — before the process in Minnesota is even complete!
The Democrats have claimed they were for a fair and honest recount, but the facts show this was simply a lie.
The truth is that billionaire George Soros and ACORN-backed Democrat Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie’s Canvassing Board have backed Franken’s outrageous subversion of the vote process: some Franken voters have voted twice, Coleman votes have been rejected, and the Franken camp literally makes up the recount rules as they go along.
The irregularities in this Election Contest are absolutely shocking — and allowing Franken to claim victory now is outrageous.
With the help of Minnesota’s liberal Sec. of State Mark Ritchie they have rewritten the rules and Franken now has a “lead.”
The Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) has been the leader in fighting against vote fraud and for open, fair, and honest elections.
We at the RNLA need your urgent help today to expose the fraudulent efforts of Harry Reid and a Soros-ACORN supported Secretary of State to pick Al Franken the next Senator from Minnesota.
We must expose their brazen attempt to subvert the democratic process — before the vote is even final!
You can help us stop Harry Reid and George Soros — Donate Here Now
Let me reveal to you just how Franken and Ritchie are working to steal this election from Republican Norm Coleman.
Ritchie has taken votes that were clearly for Coleman and rejected them, putting them in a pile for the courts to decide at a later date.
Meanwhile, Franken votes have been accepted, giving Franken an artificial lead.
During the recount supposed “errors” were corrected, almost always favoring Franken. Though this is statistically impossible, the votes were counted for Franken.
In one voting precinct that clearly benefitted Coleman, the Ritchie led Canvassing Board ruled that the recount will not include them — instead that one precinct will have to live with the final vote total as of election night.
The Ritchie led canvassing board has even admitted they are “not going to be entirely consistent” when reviewing challenged ballots and has ruled a number of votes as votes for Franken when his circle is marked and as under votes when the Coleman circle is identically marked.
The effort to subvert a fair vote is so obvious, even a Democratic election official in Minneapolis admitted votes are being counted twice.
“I know it happened in several precincts,” she said.
Simply put, the Ritchie led Secretary of State office wants to decide this election in Franken’s favor and certify him the “winner.”
They want Reid and Senate Democrats to seat him in the Senate.
They don’t care if Coleman fights the election in court — after the fact.
As National Republican Senatorial Chair Texas Senator John Cornyn stated: “Al Franken is falsely declaring victory based on an artificial lead created on the back of the double counting of ballots.”
We here at the RNLA are waging a fierce battle to stop Franken, Soros and Ritchie.
We have the truth on our side.
We need to expose these illicit attempts to steal the election and seat Al Franken in the Senate.
You can help up today — Go Here Now.
Remember this Senate seat is crucial. If Franken joins the Democrats he will give them 59 seats. They will be just one short vote of a filibuster.
They will be able to push through a radical liberal agenda.
But we can still stop them.
We need your help today — Go Here Now
Thank you.

In this Monday, Sept. 29, 2008 file photo, House Minority Leader John Boehner,AP – In this Monday, Sept. 29, 2008 file photo, House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, is pursued by …

WASHINGTON – House Republican leader John Boehner on Wednesday urged President Bush to block all federal funds to a grass-roots community group that has been accused of voter registration fraud.

“It is evident that ACORN is incapable of using federal funds in a manner that is consistent with the law,” Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote Bush, saying that funds should be blocked until all federal investigations into the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now are completed.

ACORN, a group that has led liberal causes since it was formed in 1970, this year hired more than 13,000 part-time workers to sign up voters in minority and poor neighborhoods in 21 states. Some of the 1.3 million registration cards submitted to local election officials, using the names of cartoon characters or pro football players, were obviously phony, spurring GOP charges of widespread misconduct.

ACORN has said it was its own quality-control workers who first noticed problem registration cards, flagged them and submitted them to local election officials in every state that is now investigating them.

To commit fraud, a person would have to show up on Election Day with identification bearing the fake name.

Local law enforcement agencies in about a dozen states are investigating fake registrations submitted by ACORN workers and the FBI is reviewing those cases.

Boehner said his office had determined that ACORN had received more than $31 million in direct federal funding since 1998. He said the group had likely received far more indirectly through federal block grants to states and localities. “Immediate action is necessary to ensure that no additional tax dollars are directed to ACORN while it is under investigation,” he wrote Bush.

Boehner said he and other Republicans were also asking the Justice Department to investigate ACORN’s connections to the home mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying ACORN “appears to have played a key role in the irresponsible schemes that led to the current financial meltdown.”

Republican presidential candidate John McCain has asked if ACORN, which he accused of perpetuating voter registration fraud, was “destroying the fabric of democracy.” ACORN and other advocacy groups have suggested that Republicans are exaggerating the issue to keep the underprivileged, who tend to vote Democratic, from casting ballots.

September 8, 2008

By Don White

Orlando, FL—In a previous post today I asked some pertinent questions about the government takeover of Fannie and Freddie. I have studied the questions and now it’s time for some answers.

Question One Through Three: I asked why Bush and Secretary Paulson hadn’t come on prime-time national television to explain both what they did and where we’re going. I can’t answer why they haven’t appeared, except to conjecture that they haven’t the slightest idea of where they’re going.

That being the case, may I offer some advice. America is not a socialistic country. Taking over a function of the private enterprise should not become a habit. In fact, there is a way to reverse this “error” and to do it right.

The president should announce that Fannie and Freddie will be chopped up into several—maybe two dozen—small private mortgage guarantee companies completely disassociated from the government. They would be private companies capable of purchasing mortgage paper just as the F&F twins do right now. Except, there will be one huge difference. Never again will the American taxpayer be placed on the hook for failure of a mortgage guarantee company. These companies must buy good paper, loans that will have expectation of full payoffs.

That means banks and mortgage companies must cease operating like they have in the past, That is, offering credit to people who have no expectations of paying their mortgages each month. That’s precisely what got us into this mess. The sub-prime mortgage business was booming and someone was making some money, but it sure wasn’t Mr. And Mrs. John Q Public. They are only the sad goats of all this nonsense. “Nonsense” is too kind a word.

What banks, mortgage companies, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae did was outright criminal and someone should go to jail. But I would rather someone other than taxpayers foot the bills, which I estimate could range from $50 billion to $200 billion.

What that will result in is a big tax increase for everyone. Oh, lawmakers will delay the impact. Paulson will merely print some more money and our buying power will take a beating commensurately because the Chinese will exact an arm and a leg for future financing, knowing our paper just depreciated ten percent.

Who is at fault? The Democrat high rollers and their slush funds.

“What? Why do you people always blame the Dems?” we will hear from the liberal left.

“Because they’re at fault, especially in this one,” I’ll reply. There were a lot of conservative financial gurus who saw this coming. They warned politicians on both sides of the isle what was coming down. They said we needed a vast cleanup of the financial mess in this country. But strong Democrats always stood in the way of reform—people like Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.); Byron Lewis Sr., chairman & CEO Uniworld Group; Sanford Weill, chairman & CEO Citigroup and H. Carl McCall, New York State Comptroller, and Richard A. Grasso former chairman of the NY Stock Exchanges, and benefactors of Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Coalition.

Big money went to fake do-good concerns like Acorn and the Open Society Institute — an institution committed to George Soros’ militant ideology of toppling the “fascist” tyranny of the United States, which he says must undergo “de-Nazification” in favor of “justice.” As writer Michelle Malkin said, “The mob at Obama-endorsing MoveOn, purveyors of the “General Betray Us” smear against Commanding General, MNF-I, David Petraeus, is the most notorious Soros-backed political arm. But scores of other activist nonprofits have received Soros funding under the guise of doing nonpartisan “community” or “social justice” work — and it is exactly such leftist activist groups that would be first in line for the Democratic Party/Obama’s “social investment” seed money.”

Point in case: ACORN. As I’ve reported before, Obama’s old friends at the Chicago-based nonprofit now take in 40 percent of their revenues from American taxpayers. They raked in tens of millions in federal antipoverty grants while some of their operatives presided over massive voter fraud and others were implicated in corporate shakedowns and mortgage scams across the country. Soros has donated at least $150,000 to the group, according to Investor’s Business Daily, and “heads a secretive rich-man’s club called ‘Democracy Alliance’ that has doled out $20 million to activist groups like ACORN.”

Substituting for Rush Limbaugh today (September 8, 2008), Jason Long said the reason Republicans haven’t been able to clean up the partisan “waste” in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae financials is because certain powerful democrats didn’t want it cleaned up. He said one of the reason these institutions were not well enough funded to handle the unusually high number of mortgage note failures is because they had donated their “rainy-day funds” to Acorn, the Open Society Institute and other Democrat social investment groups—and he mentioned $400,000 and $600,000 going to these two groups in a given year, and there are more. It’s kind of like Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition that sucked The New York Stock Exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars each year until scandal caused its leader to be discredited and fired.

Once the spigot is turned on, there’s no plugging it up.

The McCain-Palin ticket has promised to reform Washington. This is just the place to start putting people like Frank and Rangle out of business.

I doubt there will even be indictments, but there should be.

To Sum it Up, here are the answers to this mornings Post:
Orlando–Secretary of Finance Henry Paulson has some tall explaining to do. The American taxpayer demands it. He recently took over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, ousted their president and CEO and assumed management of two very poorly financed and managed companies.

First, President Bush and Paulson should come on national television and explain these actions. In a free country with a market-driven economy what the administration did is tantamount to something you hear about in dictatorships, not in America. Here’s what they could say:

While it’s true that “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are so large and so interwoven in our financial system that a failure of either of them would cause great turmoil . . at home and around the globe,” we need to turn Washington upside down. We need to get rid of corrupt politicians and get the U.S. government out of the mortgage guarantee business. McCain and Palin are just the people to do it. This is part of the reason liberal congressmen like Barney Frank insist on criticizing Sarah Palin and believe even her family is fair game. She could hurt Barney and his kind, and hurt him bad!

I strongly suggest we chop up Fannie and Freddie and don’t guarantee any more loans. The good will of the taxpayers is fragile. It won’t take much more of this bailout and guarantee stuff to create a real taxpayer revolt in America.

But by the same token, I believe THIS LAST TIME a bailout is necessary. “A failure would affect the ability of Americans to get home loans, auto loans and other consumer credit and business financing. And a failure would be harmful to economic growth and job creation,” Hank Paulson said. We know that, but why wasn’t action been taken sooner? Just reorganize the whole thing differently to insulate and protect American taxpayers in the future

I still ask question two. Lest you forgot, here it is again:
Question Two: If things are so bad, why didn’t you (Bush Administration) see it coming? Why did you wait so long to take such drastic action? Is someone in Washington falling asleep? Why weren’t the Democrats calling for Bush to do something before now? The answer to that is the graft they were aiding and abetting. It was to the Democrats’ best interest to look the other way and they did. In a real sense, you could say the Democrats caused this whole mess, and that is true; but that, too, would be an oversimplification of a complex problem.

Question Three: How much? How much is this going to cost you and me, Mr. and Mrs. American taxpayer? Why doesn’t anyone have a handle on the costs? Or is it so bad you can’t face us with the facts? Come on, George Bush, you owe a full accounting, and not next week but right now. Someone knows precisely how bad things got. Someone also knows how much it may cost the U.S. taxpayers. Freddie Mac alone will cost the American taxpayer more than $12 billion. I’m still estimating the whole mess could cost us $50 billion to $200 billion. Whoops! Barak Obama, there went your big money you were going to give to Africa. We just don’t have it anymore. You and your fellow Dems stole that money and more from the taxpayers long ago...
