The New York Times is the fountainhead of the Leftist propaganda machine in the United States. It is therefore significant that its Editorial Board, stocked with Boomer radicals, has just made a fundamental admission against interest. In reaction to Obama’s massive and systematic abuse of executive power, the NYT editorialized that
Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive branch will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it. That is one reason we have long argued that the Patriot Act, enacted in the heat of fear after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by members of Congress who mostly had not even read it, was reckless in its assignment of unnecessary and overbroad surveillance powers.
But this is of course a lie. Nothing in the Patriot Act authorizes the government-wide abuse of power by the IRS, EPA, FBI, DOJ, and other agencies with the coercive powers against Americans and foreigners. The fault is not in the Patriot Act, but in Obama’s Chicago-style one-party machine style of governance. And rather than defending our freedoms, the leftist media colluded with abuse of power until after the election of 2012. The New York Times is the biggest gear in the Obama Machine and they know it.
Contrary to the last desperate defense spun by the Times, the Bush Administration never abused the press immunities of reporters; it never used the IRS to initiate hostile investigations of its domestic political enemies, no matter how poisonous and hateful those enemies became; it did not peddle the massive transnationalist fraud of global warming through the EPA; it did not aggress against private corporations as a routine practice; it did not blackmail medical corporations to fund its piratical takeover of 1/7 of the American economy just to benefit its own political clout; it did not practice billion-dollar corruption for its favorite corporate cronies; it did not abuse the coercive powers of the Department of Justice in pursuit of a racialist revenge agenda; it did not indulge in daily White House lies the way Mr. Obama does; and it did not try to establish a Chicago political machine at the Federal level.
Moreover, Republicans never publicly wish for one-party rule in the United States, the way prominent Democrats do so often. They do not engage in monopolistic media collusion, as exposed by the under-covered Journolist scandal. Republicans never engage in the vicious high-tech mob lynching of good and decent human beings, the way the radical Left has done so many times, from Justice Clarence Thomas to the racialist outcry against Hillary and Bill Clinton at the Democratic Convention of 2008.
Since the Boomer Left conducted its concealed Long March through the Institutions of the 1970s and 80s to conquer the organs of propaganda in the United States and Europe, the radical left has pursued a near-totalitarian agenda. The result has been a gradual coup d’etat that is visible in the one-party reign of Europe’s new appointive ruling class, retaining only the outer mask of electoral legitimacy. In America we have seen the same concealed coup through the regular abuse of racial, gender, ideological, and sexualist preferences in hiring and promotion in government, education, and media. The result is not totalitarian in the killing sense, not yet — but it is totalitarian in spirit, because its aim is total control over the lives of a free people.
The New York Times hides this reality to cover up its own complicity in the radical Long March through the Institutions, the most important operating manual for the Boomer Left next to Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. It was “Pinch” Sulzberger, after all, who introduced ideological hiring and editorial corruption of a formerly decent (though leftist and politicized) newspaper. Pinch is a Boomer radical, and he brought in his own kind to bring the standards of reporting at the Times to its lowest level in modern history. Faithful readers of the Times are either abandoning it in droves or are clinging to it in a pure act of faith that has no basis in adult reality.
The totalitarian left is not new in American life, and we have survived previous outbreaks of this plague. That does not mean we will survive the current assault, however, since, like the HIV virus, each outbreak learns from the mistakes of the previous one.
Before Joe McCarthy there was Josef Stalin, and the McCarthyist campaign against Communist infiltration makes no sense without understanding the threat of Stalin. FDR’s advisor Harry Hopkins is now known to have hopped into a KGB car driving around Washington, and FDR himself surrendered much of Europe to Stalin’s Soviet Empire at Yalta, against Churchill’s urgent advice. The Manhattan Project was penetrated by Soviet agents, including German physicist Klaus Fuchs, who stole nuclear secrets and went back to East Germany in triumph to become a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. Fuchs’ nuclear espionage was hardly disguised. He was given a medal for it. Even the left admits today that the Rosenbergs and the Cambridge spies in Britain were Soviet agents. France was even worse, if anything. West Germany’s governments were penetrated by East German spies. Vladimir Putin was the Soviet KGB head in East Germany.
Call that Chapter 1 of the totalitarian left in America. It did much harm, but the country survived.
It was good that this American Thinker article mentioned the EPA as yet another Administration agency abusing its information gathering to assist Obama and the Left.
More is here:
Who are this country’s worst domestic terrorists?
Who did the EPA just give personal data — including names, personal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses – about 80,000 farmers and ranchers to?
Of course if we believe the left, it’s entirely coincidence that yet another agency under the administration of the Executive branch, has given information to far-left groups.
Interesting that the Times takes the Congress to task for passing the Patriot Act without reading it…. Where’s the similar outrage over Obamacare? …. Rhetorical Question. 😉
To those who favor spying and mass unwarranted incrimination of innocent Americans, get a life.
If you want to do things that are in accordance with the Constitution, don’t spy and don’t steal information without probable cause. And don’t lie to a series of judges until you get one that will side with your lies as Eric Holder did. He’s despicable.
Otherwise, change the law. Change the Constitution, because until then no matter what judges, bureaucrats and others say, IT’S ILLEGAL. Nobody cannot justify Constitutionally the first incrimination and then investigation of persons who are entitled to feel secure in their persons and belongings.
This Constitutional evasion, it is noteworthy to point out, is occurring on many fronts. These are attacks from both the liberal right and liberal left specifically unlawfully violating citizen rights:
1. Gun control. Read the plain English rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Is there a part that is not clear? I think not.
2. Forcing organizations to participate in birth control and abortion? Read the Constitution. It is the right of citizens to follow their conscience and religion. Government laws are patently illegal and unconstitutional any other way; and judges and bureaucrats do not change this, they just violate it.
3. Spying on citizens en mass. Without a) probable cause, b) specifics, and c) a warrant, no matter what, there is NO legality in the type of spying the government as NSA is now doing. None.
4. Using a public agencies, such as the NSA, IRS, and others, for political purposes is criminal. What part of the 4th Amendment (and the Bill of Rights) do these subversive types (such as Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and others) not understand?
5. Mass body and belongings checks and search and seizures by TSA at airports or elsewhere are criminal. This is a direct violation of the 4th Amendment. Judges cannot change this (although some have tried denying that the Constitution is not only clear on this point, but that THIS IS THE REASON IT WAS ENACTED). Is it possible that judges themselves are in violation of the Constitution with their unconstitutional rulings? Yes it is. Judges have been arrested, tried and found guilty of crimes before. And it is up to the people and their representatives to correct violations of Constitutional guarantees and illegal activity.
The fact is that all of the gun control laws, rules and regulations imposing birth control and abortion are mandates that are patently unconstitutional. Yes, I know you’ll say that the high court has parsed this, but there are TYRANTS and subversion also in the court system. We need to be vigilant and understand what they are trying to do but can’t. So they’re trying to take a little piece here and a little bit there — slowly.
[Note that supporters of the NSA spying say 1) that George Bush started this; but it is wrong no matter who started it, 2) they say it has been ongoing for perhaps as long as 7 years. Seems to me they planned it this way so as to be a point for your acquiescence; and 3) they say that it helped prevent one or two attacks. Well the cost is not justified. I say use your brains and find another better way that is more effective, costs less and does not violate anybody’s rights. The Boston bombers were certainly not caught even though this massive, intrusive, illegal and unconstitutional intrusion was in place. Stop it!]
Fight back! The minute they pass unconstitutional laws, rules and regulations, they are STEALING from you something more personal and precious than you can image; stealing from you, your children and your posterity. This country, America, was founded on enduring principles of freedom and liberties substantiated by a Constitution we all agree is the foremost law of the land — but we must be vigilant against those who would imprison us under communism, socialism or fascism.
Otherwise, the same Constitution authorizes its citizens to overthrow the government and bring back a just and fair system of government based on the original principles guaranteed by our current Constitution. Read about it. Google this.
It almost seems as though we need a law to protect the law; our rights, the Constitution.
Obama is not smart, he is clever. And, too bad it’s not for the good of the country or it’s citizens. Some say that Obama does these crafty things even though he taught the Constitution and should know better. But it is because he knows the Constitution that he is seeking to circumvent the law to serve his radical leftist and Muslim ways. He is though a miserable failure. He has lost his way and soon his craftiness will dim as he is not the one people though he was.
