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 […]
