An e-mail, from a fellow freedom-fighter, gave me cause to think long and hard about the growing animosity between the shrinking middle-class and business in our country today, who is agitating that animosity, and what they hope to gain.
Who is not aware that the taxpayers bailed out the Wall Street tycoons in 2008-2009, and the billions added to the national debt because of it? In essence, the little people – the average every day Mom and Pop – bailed out businesses that make millions of dollars every year and pay their CEO's and top management millions every year in compensation.
The resulting anger from this bailout, which the majority of hard-working Americans were opposed to, but which Congress and the White House did anyway, is aimed at business, in general. And to be very clear, those bailouts happened under two administrations, one Republican and one Democrat.
In the words of Rahm Emanuel, "never let a good crisis go to waste." And there is a segment in our country that is trying to make the most of the resulting anger of Americans.
Of these people, we need to be cautious that we know what their real agenda is.
There are three factions that exist in the United States today.
There are the communists. This group, like "also known as" (AKA) Obama (for who really knows which is his real name and which are his aliases), is largely comprised of people who believe in the fundamental principles of communism as it differs from fascism: ownership of everything held by the government in the common interest. In the United States, this group largely comprises those calling themselves Democrats. Their modus operandi, in achieving the ultimate communist state in this country, is to use the public coffers to perpetuate the "general welfare" of the people; their focus is social programs such as welfare, socialized medicine – in general, taking from those who work and providing social programs for those who don't, thus buying their vote.
There are the fascists. This group, like Bush, is largely comprised of people who believe in the fundamental principles of fascism as it differs from communism: wealth is held by large (mega) corporations and banks who influence how the government is run, in the common good. In the United States, this group largely comprises those calling themselves Republicans. Their modus operandi, in achieving the ultimate fascist state in this country, is to ensure the wealth, continued growth, and influence of big business, such that those businesses have the means necessary to influence government policy in the common good.
Communists and fascists are two heads of a three-headed Marxist snake, advocating "democracy" – rule by the majority with the rights of the minority at the whim of the majority; in other words, rule according to the passions, opinions and prejudices of those in power.
As Americans are learning the hard way, and in the words of James Madison, in Federalist Paper #10,
"such Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives, as they have been violent in their deaths."
Both communists and fascists adhere to the basic principles of Marxism, each merely a sect of the philosophy. Nazism, or national socialism, is but another sect of the same philosophy, the third head of the three-headed Marxist snake.
So when communists and fascists speak ill of Nazi's or neo-Nazi's, they do so not because there are fundamental differences in their beliefs, but rather because of the stigmatism associated to Nazism because of Adolf Hitler and the atrocities committed by the Third Reich that came to light in World War II. Had the same policies, used in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (the U.S.S.R.), resulted in the same kind of world conflict, had the millions who died as a result of the same policies in the U.S.S.R. resulted in the same stigma, maybe people wouldn't be so quick to jump on the "social revolution" bandwagon advocated by every good communist.
The third group are freedom-loving Americans who understand the foundations, the history, and the purpose of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, establishing a limited form of government, based on the Biblical principles of self-governance; where all men are created equal in the eyes of God; where all rights are God-given; where man's right to freedom is in exact proportion to his willingness to put chains upon those human proclivities – defined in the Ten Commandments – that are detrimental to the establishment and maintenance of a cohesive civilized society. This group understands that the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights established rule of law and what that means in the larger context.
One of the primary lessons of the fall of the Roman Empire is that no society can long stand when that society moves away from its founding principles. This is no less true in America. Either we stand on our founding principles or we destroy the very foundations of our nation; at the same time, we destroy that which has drawn so many oppressed people to our shores.
In the arena of education, that destruction began, in a big way, in the late 1800's with the introduction of the works of John Dewey, a self-avowed Marxist and humanist, whose views on education were a direct result of his Marxist ideology – resulting in the dumbing down of children in the interests of producing the attitude needed in pursuit of the common good. That ideology permeates the system of education being used in the United States today, otherwise known by an assortment of names – outcomes-based, performance-based, competency-based, outcomes driven developmental model, and et cetera; otherwise known as systems education.
In general, the ideology is a move away from teaching children to think, to be able to access a broad spectrum of knowledge to formulate a reasoned conclusion as an individual, to life-role education in which what is deemed politically correct becomes the foundation of lessons taught in four areas: world economy, world security, world ecology and world population growth, in no particular order.
Thus it is that parents are finding their children subjected to rabid environmentalism; homosexuality as normal; the teaching of ethnic tribalism (society not as a melting pot but as a nation of tribes, each tribe their own society with their own customs); guns are bad; whites are racists; earth as one nation (globalism); older people are the cause of everything wrong in America today … in the classroom.
The recent ExPlan that came to light, put on by a consortium of government entities, funded by the Department of Homeland Security, in Pottawattamie County, Iowa, in which whites, opposed to the illegal alien invasion of the United States, were portrayed as racists of the white supremacist persuasion, given to the stockpiling of weapons and violence, is a good example of the life-role education going on in schools.
While the exercise coordinators denied the Exercise Scenario, found on pages 12-13 of the ExPlan, had anything to do with the actual drill, the Exercise Scenario provided the wanted perception played out in who was deemed the "victim" (minorities and illegal aliens) and who was deemed the perpetrator (whites, opposed to the illegal alien invasion, with guns insinuating violent tendencies). When objections to the Exercise Scenario forced coordinators to cancel the exercise, coordinators then tried to portray themselves as the victims, and everyone who contacted them, concerned about the profiling established by the Exercise Scenario, as white supremacists given to violence, etc.
The ideology has also found its way into the work place, via total quality management (TQM); into how government functions, via the high performance work organization (HPWO), continuous quality improvement (CQI), or performance-based budgeting (PBB); and the church, via social gospel or the church growth movement (CGM) in which filling the pews is deemed much more important than teaching the word of God.
In short the transformation of America, from rule of law to democracy is well under way. The process is known as transformational Marxism or the quiet revolution. The Republicans and Democrats are pushing it; only those Americans who understand the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights stand in opposition. That number is growing daily, as Americans come to realize that neither Republicans nor Democrats are the friend of our beloved United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, of freedom, liberty and justice.
Most Americans today know that AKA began his work in Chicago as a "community organizer"; that AKA is a disciple of one Saul Alinsky, founder of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), found today, under a variety of names, in many different states. The focus of this group is community organizing. While their claim is that they represent the poor, the down-trodden, those without a voice, their actual focus is attaining power and position. In the words of Paul Likoudis in The Legacy of CHD (Campaign for Human Development, a funding mechanism for the IAF for many years), The Wanderer Press, 1994 …
"As for the poor, for whom CHD alleges to have such concern, their lives are never improved; their poverty is never eased or escaped. They are just voters – and pawns in leftist politics."
Saul Alinsky was a self-avowed Marxist; the organization he built to this day adheres to his Marxist beliefs. To that end, his organization, by its many names, goes into communities and organizes liberal churches and organizations in pursuit of the Marxist principles that underlie the common good. Those principles are, and always have been, in direct conflict with personal security and the rights of property, of freedom, liberty and justice.
And one of the quickest ways to identify such groups is when they start promoting appointed councils, committees and commissions, and encourage the use of non-governmental organizations (NGO's) to influence government policy, or when they identify themselves as the voice of the people or the voice of those whom they proclaim have no voice.
Community organizers are taught how to organize for power, how to lead those perceived as being disenfranchised to believe they have a voice. One organization that trains community organizers, besides the IAF, is the Midwest Training Academy, started by former Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) members Heather Booth and Steve Max. Heather Booth, a self-avowed socialist/Marxist, was trained by Alinsky's organizing institute. A classmate of Booth, Jerry Kellman, would later become the training mentor to AKA who now lends his name and support to community organizing projects such as MoveOn.org, Center for Community Change, Born Again American and Organizing for America, and by his support, organizations such as the scandal-plagued community organizing group, ACORN.
How does this all link to the communist agenda in America with regard to big business? Two videos, published on The Blaze website, give us good insight into the war going on between the Marxists and the Fascists. Community organizers are, as I write this, constructing a campaign targeting those who are partners in the public/private partnership between business and government that is the hallmark of fascism.
And their intent is to draw as many freedom-loving Americans into their fold, on the premise that big business is running and ruining this country, as they can. And they intend to do that by agitating against big business, using the government bailouts of big corporations and banks as the wedge to accomplish the task.
What should freedom-loving Americans do?
Be cautious of those purporting to represent our interests, who tell us that big business is our enemy, who seek to represent our voice at a higher level.
If people want to know who, among big business, has the ear and the voting hand of our elected representatives, whether it be local, state or federal, find out who is donating to the re-election campaigns of those running for elected positions; then boycott those banks, insurance companies, mega corporations who have that kind of money. Watch who advertizes on television and radio, to a lesser degree on the internet. Businesses – like AIG, Progressive, Geico, Farmers, AT&T, IBM, Microsoft, Boeing, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan – have the kind of money to pay their CEO's millions in compensation, and millions also goes to buying influence with those we elect to represent us. OpenSecrets.org is a good source for who is donating to campaigns and causes.

Community organizers are not targeting your local Mom and Pop business, the backbone of this nation; but in the long run, their philosophy is just as destructive to your local Mom and Pop businesses, to the free market system established by the United States Constitution, as it will be to big business.
At the same time, don't vote for candidates and incumbents who accept money from community organizing entities, who support non-elected councils, committees and commissions that supposedly "represent" the people.
These are dangerous times; be careful who you follow.
