~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
On Monday as Communists around the world celebrated May Day, Carlos Gaio, a YouTuber living in Venezuela is released part one of a series of videos entitled: “My Socialist Hell part 1: Job story.”
The point of the video is to share with the world the suffering and harsh conditions under which the people of Venezuela are living. Carlos is to garner enough donations through his video series to escape Venezuela.
Carlos, a 31-year-old unemployed English language teacher aware of the history and failings of socialism has been unemployed since December 2015.
…Gaio begins by saying that his government is not actually a government, it is more accurately a dictatorship. He says they are running the country as a socialist one, but as Gaio says “if you take a look at history, socialism never worked.”
“Take a look at the USSR. Take a look at Romania,” says Gaio. “Take a look at all the eastern European countries that were run by socialism during the 70’s and 80’s. They don’t have these forms of government anymore…”

Arizona news anchor, Catherine Anaya, let it slip earlier this week that White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the White House Press Corps in advance prior to the daily press briefings.
Translation: The daily White House Press briefings are orchestrated.
Immediately, Carney denied the claims followed by a throng of White House media sock puppets including Fox News Ed Henry immediately who disputed the anchor’s report. (Whoops, vengeance from the Obama Mafia is swift.)
Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, is already pushing a denial out there, but there is no reason for a local news reporter to make this up. Catherine Anaya of KPHO-TV in Phoenix has come out on record to state Jay Carney admitted to her he receives press questions BEFORE the daily White House briefings. The entire event is an orchestrated love fest between the media, and the Obama White House….
Jay Carney’s response as expected was to deny Anaya’s claims that WH press briefings are orchestrated.
At the same time, the White House dispatched its sock puppets en masse to refute Anaya’s claims. (Cannot help but wonder if the assignment was under threat of losing their seat in the White House Press corps.)
In addition, to the sock puppets mentioned in the above video, Ed Henry (Fox News) and Jennifer Epstein (Politico) also refuted Anaya’s claims.
@GCGATOR24 sorry but I do not submit questions before the press briefing
Confirming to Americans what Americans have expected all along turned out to be one heck of a no-no because within hours, Catherine Anaya walked back her statement along with her network pulling her report from the internet.
‘Last night during my live reports from the White House I attempted to describe the highlights of the day. I was speaking off the cuff and unscripted and in the process I made two major mistakes: I reported an off the record conversation and what I reported was not accurate. I took a conversation about the preparation for a press briefing and muddied it with my own experience of wanting to provide a question for the press briefing. I incorrectly applied the process to everyone. That was wrong and it was bad reporting….”
As predicted, once Phoenix CBS-affiliate reporter Catherine Anaya went public with her claims that the Obama White House receives press questions in advance, and the press in turn are even given print outs of the White House responses (prior to the question being asked!), the mighty D.C. powers of retributive threats would be in full force pushing a woman down onto the proverbial ground until she retracts her comments….
Controlling the message is tantamount and nothing is made public without the approval of the Obama Mafia.
To start with, I can tell you one thing that surely happened yesterday. The full, expletive-filled wrath of the White House press operation came down on Anaya and her bosses to make them change their story. We’re used to this garbage in Washington, but I’m sure they’re not.
And, assuming she is not prone to hallucinating and didn’t bring her lithium with her to Washington, her new explanation also sounds suspect….
There goes another career. I hope not but that’s how Progressives Communists roll.
The following video dates back to Barack Obama’s first term. Now almost halfway through Obama’s second term, ponder Dinesh D’Souza’s assessment which has become a reality, the pain and destruction wrought upon our nation and its people, many of whom voted for an authoritarian in search of vengeance.
Dinesh D’Souza on Why Obama Wants to Destroy America
The key anticolonial idea is that how did the rich countries become rich. Why do people live better in Britain and Germany and America than they do in let’s say Rio de Janeiro or Jakarta or Mumbai? Answer — because the West invaded and occupied and looted all those countries, taking all their stuff. Wealth in this view is not earned. It’s not the result of creativity or initiative. It’s basically the result of piracy.
In 1965, Barack Obama Sr. wrote an article in the East Africa Journal — he was talking about what does a country do when you got all these rich guys at the top. He mentions a bunch of solutions but one of them is very high tax rates. He says, “Theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income — 100% tax rates.
You might say, anyone who is familiar with economics would know that this is kind of nuts. Why would anyone propose it? Once you plug in the underlying anticolonial idea it actually makes sense. Imagine if you came to my house and stole all my furniture, what’s the proper tax rate for you? One hundred percent because it’s not your furniture. If wealth is seen as appropriated then there is nothing wrong with the government using all its power to take it back.
Let’s fast forward now to Obama’s recent comment of business guys, ‘You didn’t build that. It’s not you. It’s society. Society created the wealth. You the entrepreneur you’re swooping in and skimming off the top. It doesn’t belong to you. There is here an authorization for the government to seize, to confiscate. But the government isn’t taking from you. You’ve got to realize the underlying assumption is, it wasn’t yours to begin with. All the conservative arguments about incentives don’t really matter.’ The question, how do you deal with thieves? You don’t provide them with incentives. You punish them. You take away their ill-gotten gains.
The second part of anti-colonialism quite apart from the idea of theft is also the idea that America and American power is very bad for the world. In other words, America is not a force of freedom but America is actually a force of exploitation. If you look at the dual movement of Obama’s policies, domestic and foreign policy, they’re kind of linked. What’s he doing? Domestically he is expanding the power of the state at home. Internationally, he is shrinking or contracting the power of the United States. It’s a scissors motion. He is expanding state power locally and he is reducing America’s power in the world.
Why would Obama support oil drilling abroad but not here? It has nothing to do with environmentalism. I don’t believe Obama could care whether the Earth is getting hotter or colder. He doesn’t know. He doesn’t care. What he’s attempting is global energy redistribution. He’s trying to make sure that the previously colonized countries have more energy so they can grow faster and he’s putting the expense on what he sees to be the colonizer which is to say us.
Why is Obama promiscuously spending money as if the deficit didn’t matter? It’s very obvious that if the Republicans didn’t have the Congress he would have spent a lot more. The reason he’s doing it I believe is because he is using debt as a way to settle America’s colonial debt. In other words, the idea here is that America owes the world big time trillions of dollars. Obama knows that he can’t possibly propose a foreign aid program even Democrats wouldn’t vote for that much giveaway.
Now think about how debt achieves the same result because if our children and grandchildren are saddled with trillions of dollars of debt, they’re going to have to pay back and to whom? Well, a good deal of that debt is owned by the Kuwaitis, it is owned by the Saudis, it is owned by the Chinese. Debt becomes a form of global redistribution. He’s trying to restore the world before colonialism.
If we lived in the year 1500 and looked around the world, there were several great powers — China, India, the Arab-Islamic world, the civilizations of the Americas. It was a multipolar world without a single superpower like America. I believe Obama wants us to go back to that world.
Where does this really leave us? I think one of the powerful things about our film 2016 is it shows Obama’s agenda in his own words. It links them to his actions and it shows what the likely next move is going to be in a number of key areas.
Ultimately with Obama you can understand where he’s going if you don’t know his core ideology. Remember, we haven’t even seen the real Obama. We’ll see the real Obama only in the second term. A first-term president is kind of tendered to public opinion. He has to maintain constituencies. In the second term, in a sense, he can come out of the closet. He can be himself.
…Just a few years ago, the former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, was preparing a bill where the government would confiscate every 401K and IRA in the U.S., and translate those funds into a ‘guaranteed’ annuity. This fell through as the Democrats lost the House of Representatives in 2010, but the idea has not been far from the minds of Progressives as President Obama’s assumed proposal would be the beginning of a path to complete confiscation of more than $14 trillion owned by American citizens….
Are you paying attention America? There is $14 trillion plus of working Americans’ money at stake and the Communist elites are calculating a strategy to confiscate of every last dime.
It’s a trap. It will make your savings highly visible to the government, very vulnerable to future special taxes and it drives investments in the direction of financing the government with your savings, rather than the productive private sector. That’s what myRA is all about….
Canceled healthcare plans, nudging Americans into Obamacare followed by a ponzi scheme that would result in the confiscation of retirement nest eggs of hard working Americans….
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released its 2013 list of Washington’s ‘Ten Most Wanted driving force behind so many of the misdeeds Corrupt Politicians.’ The list, in alphabetical order, includes:
This is Obama’s seventh straight year on the list, dating back all the way to 2007 (in 2006, he earned a ‘Dishonorable Mention’). He is a master at catch-me-if-you-can, corrupt politics. This year, he has again acted as a one-man Congress, rewriting entire sections of federal law on his own. Not only is his administration secretive and dishonest; its callous disregard for the rule of law undermines our constitutional republic. Examples include:
Perhaps Obama’s most outrageous actions over the past year were his continual lies about the ability of Americans to keep their own health insurance under Obamacare. According the Free Beacon,Obama misled the American people a total of 36 times between 2008 and 2013 with his promise, ‘If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.’ And according to NBC News, Obama knew, even as he repeated his lie, that ‘more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them:’
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be ‘grandfathered,’ meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date – the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example – the policy would not be grandfathered.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, ‘40 to 67 percent’ of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, ‘the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.’
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Throughout 2013, the Obama family continued to use the White House as its own personal travel bureau and the taxpayers as their personal expense account.
Though Obama quickly disavowed any knowledge of the IRS assault on Tea Party and other conservative groups leading up to the 2012 presidential election, the fact is that it was the president himself who fingered the groups for what might be called ‘special handling.’ Consider Obama’s own hostile and aggressive statements, made just as his IRS officials were gearing up their assault:
August 9, 2010: During his weekly radio address, Obama warned of ‘attack ads run by shadowy groups with harmless-sounding names.’ The President said: We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them . . . you don’t know if it’s a foreign controlled corporation. … The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.’
September 20, 2010: Speaking in Philadelphia, Obama once again warned that ‘nobody knows‘ the identities of the individuals who support conservative groups.
September 22, 2010: Speaking in New York, Obama warned against groups opposing his policies ‘[posing] as non-for-profit social and welfare trade groups’ and he claimed such groups were ‘guided by seasoned Republican political operatives’ and potentially supported by some unidentified ‘foreign controlled entity.’
Little wonder that after their boss sounded the call to attack, Obama’s IRS appointees obeyed the command. And even less wonder that, caught red-handed, Obama first claimed total ignorance and, when the ploy failed, simply labeled it all a ‘phony scandal.’
According to the Galen Institute, Obama has now unilaterally rewritten the Obamacare law as passed by Congress 14 times by executive fiat, with the majority of those changes coming in 2013. Those changes include such major overhauls as the congressional opt-out, eviscerating the individual mandate, and delaying the employer mandate. The latest Obama fix came on December 20, when he suddenly moved to allow hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their insurance due to Obamacare to sign up for bare-bone ‘catastrophic’ plans. As National Review observed, ‘Of course, like every other exemption from Obamacare the latest fix is supposed to last only a year, raising the prospect that people will be kicked off their catastrophic coverage as soon as the 2014 election is safely in the political rear-view mirror.’
