The Sounds of Silence – or – This is Obama Restoring America’s Standing in the World

In 2008 then candidate Barack Obama promised many things, among them was his commitment to “restore America’s standing in the world.” Then in 2009 in an interview with the Fox News Channel’s Ed Henry, he was asked about his global travels: Ed Henry: “Well, since the last time we interviewed you, you’ve won the Nobel Peace Prize and by the end of this week, you will have visited 20 countries as President – the most of any US president in his first year. What have you accomplished?” President Obama: “Well, a couple of key things. Uh, number one, I think […]

Will Bill de Blasio Drive the Rich From NYC?

If the rumblings coming from the Big Apple are correct, Bill de Blasio, the communist mayor, will successfully drive the rich, and their money, from the city.  Wyblog has more… Gentlemen start your moving vans, wealthy NYers perpare to flee de Blasio’s commie utopia Rich liberals don’t like it when they’re asked to pay their “fair share.” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s eat-the-rich policies aren’t sitting to well with the city’s wealthy residents. According to Michael Goodman, a number of them are getting ready to flee the Big Apple for greener pastures, like Florida, where they won’t be […]

Bill Whittle: Destination Russia and the Indcitment of Communism

It seems that the legacy of Communism still haunts Russia.  Bill Whittle has his take on the Olympics, and the Russian legacy of Communism… As usual, Bill Whittle targets something, like Communism, and fires away, with awesome results. H/T:  The Right Scoop

This is Your Grocery Store on Communism

After reading Robert Stacy McCain’s complete dismantling of the pro-communist rantings of Jesse Myerson, I’ve kept my eyes peeled for other stories that show how, in the words of the late Yuri Bezmenov, “how the beautiful society of equality and social justice is in practice.”  Here is one such example.  The following video shows a typical Moscow grocery store was on a typical day, in 1986. Now, besides the scarcity, did you notice that no one seemed to smile? No friendly exchanges, no banter, no warm greetings. Just mind-numbing obedience and drudgery. That was communism in the 80′s, and will […]

Socialism And Communism Are Contrary To Christianity

Fr. Marcel Guarnizo is a friend of Ed Morrissey who gives a response refuting the popular myth that the Church’s “social justice” mission is compatible with Socialism and Communism. Rev. Marcel Guarnizo counters the belief that the ideas of socialist revolution and Communism have a place at the table with Christianity.  Many, even in the Catholic Church, believe that Christianity shares some ideals with the socialist revolution.  It seems to them that Socialism, Communism, and Christianity all help the poor. Father Guarnizo outlines and exposes the errors of Communism.  Father Marcel Guarnizo writes: “The difference between the two was captured well by a joke […]

Communist Party Sues Democrats: Cites Theft of Their Party Platform

In what will surely be the most discussed intellectual property lawsuits in many years, the Communist Party (CPUSA) has filed suit against the Democratic Party.  At the core of the conflict is the claim, by the Communist party, that the democrats have stolen their party platform.  The People’s Cube has more… In a surprise move, the CPUSA (Communist Party USA) has announced a lawsuit against the Democratic Party and its leadership for the alleged theft of intellectual property. The plaintiffs claim that the entire so-called “new” Democratic agenda is, in fact, the product of a decades-long, painstaking campaign by CPUSA […]

Dinner With Obama

“If the government ever publishes a book to show bureaucrats how to serve the public, it will be a cookbook.” — Gary North __________ “I smelled something cooking and I looked to see; That’s when I found out they was-a cooking me!” — The Cadets (Stranded In The Jungle, 1956) *** When you’re in the stew pot and they’re adding the salt, it’s a little late to realize why it’s never wise to accept a dinner invitation from cannibals: Stop Giving Obama Radicals the Benefit of the Doubt (Front Page Magazine) [...] like so much about the age of Obama, […]

Venezuela: Communist Dictator Blames Others for Failure of Communism

As I have noted many time, leftists, whether they  call themselves communists or not, share the blame game with their fellow travelers.  When the Soviet Union’s beautiful collective farms failed to produce; causing the Soviet Union to go from being a food exporter to starving millions, someone had to be blamed.  Rather than admit that their bastions of equality and social justice were a steaming pile of rancid failure, they created scapegoats.  “Conspirators” with the “imperialist capitalists,” usually some poor slobs that the political commissars didn’t like, were rounded up, or “disappeared.”  It didn’t really solve the problem, but at […]

Catchphrase For Communists: Economic Violence

Pelosi: We Must “End This Economic Violence” (Weasel Zippers) #EconomicViolence started as a way for some on the Left to complain about, well, capitalism basically. – Twitchy “Nancy Pelosi wants to fight economic violence? Maybe she should start by getting Democrats to resign.” — The Daley Gator If there’s one thing at which our domestic enemies excel, it’s in coining inane slogans for the progressive Hive to murmur endlessly.  Designed to replace rational thought with bumper-sticker dementia, the socialists Democrats unveil a new one every few months, usually timed to coincide with the latest assault on our liberties.  Who could […]

Christianity and Social Justice, a False Comparison Re-Revisited

There has been, in my opinion, a monstrous perversion of Christian teachings.  In order to promote Marxism, a variety of of Christian organizations and denominations have been infiltrated and influenced to promote an anti-Christian message- “social (in)justice.”   Many evangelical groups and the Catholic Church support it as well.   Just take a moment to let that thought percolate.  Would Jesus support Marxism?  Would he support a system that is openly resistant to any God but the state?  Mind you that social justice is nothing more than Marxism renamed, so I have a difficult time accepting that Jesus will support it.  […]

Mandela Dead, And …

“In my country we go to prison first and then become President.” – Nelson Mandela “In my country, it’s just the opposite.” — Bob Mack Nelson Mandela is dead.  Too bad, I suppose.  For a communist terrorist, he seemed like a fairly decent guy.  And, since one should not speak ill of the dearly (or otherwise) departed, I’ll let old Nellie speak for himself: “I made a mistake by being ejected from the presidency. Next time, I will choose a Cabinet which will allow me to be life President.” “By ancestry, I was born to rule.” “I should tie myself […]

Nelson Mandela Coverage

I’ve been extremely busy today, but I wanted to get some coverage regarding the death of Nelson Mandela.  The Other McCain is has extensive coverage.  Here are the links… ‘Unspeakable Atrocities’ 1987: Thatcher Responds to ‘Further Intensification of the Armed Struggle’ ‘They Started to Fight Over Her and I Knew She Was Going to Be Raped’ Thanks to The Other McCain for reporting the information that the other news sources refuse to tell us.

de Blasio Announces Five-Year Plan for New York City

My new economic plan will collectivize the city! Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City has announced a five-year economic plan to revitalize the city. “My New Economic Policy is what this city needs to move forward” declared de Blasio. Naturally this will entail change and change will always be painful to the entrenched capitalist interests.  The first part of the plan will a necessary decree on property. Under this decree stores in New York City will be collectivized.  Store proprietorship will be abolished forthwith without any compensation to the capitalists. de Blasio then gave the details of […]

Persecution Against in Christians in Military Increases Exponentially

You should be afraid, very afraid, of what is happening to our military under Obama.  The persecution of Christians is almost reaching fever pitch.  Take a look at this video. The last serviceman was absolutely correct, the persecution will not stop at the military.  And it isn’t.  But, it is important to think of why it is important to start with the military.  When your remove morality from something, what happens?  You have immorality! Yes, it’s a simple idea, so simple that our would -be regressive overlords fail to get it.  Or do they? Just as a brief history lesson, […]

Cultural Marxism Revisited: How Does #FreeKate fit in the Larger Scheme of Things?

I’ve been pointing out that the #FreeKate effort is yet another in a long line of leftist causes.  The Hunts, and their #FreeKate minions are attempting to attack family structure, parental authority, and the rule of law-all in the name of making it legal for adults to have sexual relationships with minors.  As well all know, that has been a long term goal for several decades.  And, like other leftist entities, they use Alinsky styled tactics to achieve their ends.  For example, they have attempted smear and intimidate the actual victim, as well as the victim’s parents.  They have attacked […]

The Saga of Sarah Alcid, Your Intellectual Better & Committed Useful Idiot

It certainly is true what is what is said about R.S. McCain-he attracts a higher grade of troll.  And over the last couple days, he attracted one Sarah Alcid, a queer feminist Marxist who took offense offense at R.S. McCain’s coverage of the DC slut walk.  It isn’t every day that a “Queer Feminist” with a diploma from Bryn Mawr (undergraduate tuition $42,870 a year) decides she needs my attention, but I’m so grateful for Miss Alcid’s encouragement to expand on what I said this morning: “Professor Aptheker is exactly right: If you want to be a true feminist, you […]

14+ Years of Marxist Style Socialism and Things Keep Getting Worse

On Monday night, the 24th of June, I left a message that we were moving and that Asylum Watch would be back on-line as soon as I could get reconnected to the internet. Using my word processor, I started this post on Saturday morning, the 29th., not knowing; suspecting it was going to be a while before I would be able to connect to the internet again. I will explain why that was the case  and why it is related to the title of this post in a moment. Nineteen days without access to the internet and I was bouncing […]

Welcome to Amerika!

Note:  This a post that was originally published in 2010.  It still fits, if you ask me.  Every now and again, I refer to Obama’s version of our nation as “Amerika.” Given that the ObamaCare abomination has survived it’s first few hurdles, it might be a good time to revisit why I say that. In 1987, ABC ran a 12 hour miniseries called, “AMERIKA,” chronicling life in an America that was taken over by the Soviet Union. Here is the trailer. I started looking for clips from it. There aren’t all that many, but this one rings true for modern […]

May Day Violence Hits Seattle. What Else is New?

Yes, it was May Day-that Communist fiesta when leftists all over the world celebrate the most effective killing machine in human history.  Oh and they riot too… And like all peaceful leftist protests, lots of glass, like, spontaneously breaks itself… Just rest assured that it’s someone else’s fault.  It always is.

Liberal Blogger, Meg Lanker-Simons Accused of Embracing Leftist Tradition: Stages own Rape Threats

Liberals have a long an historic traduiti0n…of lies and deceit.  We’ve covered quite a bit of that here, especially when they stage their own “atrocities.”  That fine tradition was recently continued by one Meg Lanker-Simons, a liberal blogger, and student at the University of Wyoming.  Viral  Read has more on the story… A student at the University of Wyoming who claimed she was targeted for a Facebook rape threat because she “runs her liberal mouth all the time” faked the threat against herself, police say. Meg Lanker-Simons, 26, has been charged with interference with a police investigation by giving false statement.

Useful Idiots Pushing Earth Day Just the Outer Circle of Death: A Conversation with my Daughter and an Angry Mob of Teachers

When I asked my daughter today what she learned in school today she said Daddy, today we learned about how people are cutting down all the rain forests to make stuff. And that driving our cars is causing the ice caps to melt and all the polar bears to die. And that it is only going to get worse until we start doing things different. Notice she didn’t talk to me about how she learned math, reading, or history- and she didn’t mention learning a new sports game, learning about values or morals, or learning how to write computer code. […]

Cummunism Survivor Schools Legislators on the Real Purpose for Gun Control

I think that one of the greatest treasures we have are Communism Survivors.  While today was the first time I heard that term, it does fit. With over 100,000,000 citizens killed by Communist governments in the 20th century, it’s an accomplishment to have escaped.  Here is a video showing exactly why they are a treasure for all of us… We bloggers warn of what might come.  Communism Survivors actually lived it, and survived to tell about it.  We ought to listen to them, or we. or our children, will be forced to live it themselves. You can support the work […]

Resource Post: How the Soviet Union Collapsed

Some of my Conservative friends might be put off by this, but take a look at this video on how the Soviet Union collapsed.  The Classic Liberal posted it, and it is an hour long.  However, it is worth the time to view, or at least listen.  Now, one of the premises here is that Reagan confrontation of the Soviet Union, both rhetorical and military, was not a significant contributory factor in the fall of the Soviet State.  Now, think about this.  On the surface, leftists might celebrate this, saying that Reagan really wasn’t the hero that so many make […]

Ladies in White March in Cuba, Castro Regime Makes Arrests

The Ladies in White held multiple marches in Cuba on Palm Sunday.  The ladies are the mothers, wives, sisters, and children of political prisoners.  They are know for dressing in white, and marching in defiance of the regime. While the Castro regime did not engage in as many flat out murders as their communist bretheren, they have a busy system of prisons.  Let’s just say that political dissent is not embraced by the great “progressive” state there. Babalu Blog has more… Via Pedazos de la Isla: Despite arrests, Ladies in White march on Palm Sunday This Sunday, March 24th 2013- Palm […]

Hugo Chavez Legacy: Anti-Semitism, Economic Failure, And he was a Billionaire

Like so many dictators, Hugo Chavez left behind a legacy.  His legacy is not a good one, contrary to what the Michaeal Moore’s. Oliver Stone’s and the Sean Penn’s of this world would tell you.  In fact, even left of center sites are criticizing Chavez, and recommending that Democrats avoid praising Chavez.  First up here are some observations from Think Regress. While even Chavez’s critics admit that he did attempt to address the plight of Venezuela’s poorest, the decline in economic inequality in Venezuela reflected a broader egalitarian trend in Latin America, and can’t be fully credited to Chavez’s policies.
