REFERENDUM UPDATE: The final edits are completed---at last-- on the Referendum 71 petitions. I am told they are to be printed today. Details tomorrow.
Most of us who 40 or older remember PRAVDA, the old Soviet Union news service.
A few days ago PRAVDA published an article that begins, "It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breathtaking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people."
You may recall that last Saturday night President Obama, speaking to a group of donors in Hollywood, gave an overview of the changes he has already made and said, "You ain't seen nothing yet."
Stanislav Mishin, the writer of the article, "American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper," says "True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists."
"Those lessons," he says, "were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters."
Mishin observes that Americans have been dumbed down through substandard education, our faith in God has been compromised by pseudo Marxist politicians who have garnered the support of churches and clergy willing to compromise, with the final collapse coming with the election of Barack Obama.
He says the past few weeks in America has made his Russian oligarchs look like little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison.
He addresses the American government takeover of business with significant insight based on his own experiences and says even Putin is telling Europe not to embrace Marxism---as America rushes toward it. He is also calling for Russian owners of American businesses to get out---"Divest while there is still value left."
His final word may be profoundly prophetic: "The proud America will go down into slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker."
Sunday, US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was in China, our biggest buyer of America T bills, reassuring the Chinese that the Obama policies were sound, our currency under his Presidency would be strong and telling them to have faith in us.
He told his audience, "Chinese assets are very safe."
Reuters News service reported yesterday that his comments, "Drew loud laughter from his student audience."
More than a snicker.
President Obama is indeed "Remaking America" and it seems to be going well for him.
I strongly urge you to click the links to these stories, read them and ask yourself what you can do for your country. I would suggest any action begin with prayer.
