Is America Really On Its Way To Becoming Another European Style Socialist State?

Yesterday I said I would challenge an opinion commonly held by conservatives. It is probably safe to say that  there is a consensus among conservatives that the goal of the progressives for decades has  been to move the United States in the direction of becoming a European style socialist state. Certainly before the elections last week, many conservative bloggers used their platform to warn about these intentions and after the elections the cry has gone up a couple of octaves. The evidence of their intentions is clear. I certainly would not deny it. However, this old man, condemned to observe from the outside looking in, is telling you today, that in spite of their best efforts over the last fifty or more years, and in spite of the strides that Obama administration has made in moving the country in that direction, I am saying that it is not going to happen. It can not happen, in my opinion. And, furthermore, I believe that whoever is at the top of the progressive/statist food chain know very well that it is not going to happen and yet it is clear to everyone paying attention that Obama and friends are going to push even harder in that direction.

So, what is the old man talking about? I think it is quite simple. We are not going to become another European style socialist state because simply the United States of America is  BROKE! The European countries didn’t develop their socialist states when they were broke. They couldn’t have! Now that many of them are broke, the end is in sight. The economies of many European countries are crawling at a growth rate of a fraction of 1%. The United States is not much better off. Our national debt is over sixteen trillion dollars on its way to 21 trillion in a few years. Our government is already borrowing [sorry, my dollar sign / four key is acting up again] forty-one percent of everything they spend and that borrowing percentage will only increase in the coming years. Our Federal Reserve has been apply Quantitative Easing (QE) for the last four years. QE is a euphemism for creating money out of thin air. Some of my purist friends will be quick to say that QE is not the same as printing money. QE is the buying of assets by the Fed. That is true. But, the Fed does not have money of its own. They have to create the money to buy those assets out of thin air with a few keystrokes on their computer keyboard. What assets is the Fed buying? Well, they have been buying up our government’s bonds from the market place; both our short-term and our long-term bonds. They do this to drive the interest rates on our bonds down so that we can continue to service our monster debt. The Fed, for the last few years has bought about 70% of  our new bond offerings. The US now owes a large part of their national debt to the Federal Reserve. The Fed has also been buy mortgage backed securities from Fanny and Freddie and some banks. Trillions of dollars of this funny money are piling up in the excess reserve accounts of the major banks. The debt crisis is real! The debt time bomb is ticking! This should have been the one and only issue in this past election. It wasn’t. The progressives, the Democrats succeeded in making this election about side issues. It was not a referendum, on the performance of President Obama.

Friends, the debt time bomb is going to explode. They policies of this administration are going to make sure  that will happen. No one can say with any certainty when it will happen. It may be in five years or it may not happen for ten or fifteen years but it will happen. The worlds monetary system is broke and it can not now, with the results of this election, be fixed. The chances of fixing it  hadRomney won were very small at best. Yet, this administration seems hell-bent on having the debt bomb explode sooner rather than later. Why? We must be asking that question and we must find the answer.

Join me in a  review of what has happened in America since 2008. Let’s start before the bursting of the housing / financial bubble burst. Much of America was already tired of George Bush. They were tired of his prolonged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and they were tired of his profligate spending. But, the economy…the economy was booming. If you were to inter into your search engine ” Bureau of Labor Statistics, Workforce participation Rate”, you would see a graph that shows the workforce participation starting to decline when the Tech.Com bubble burst early in the first term of Bush. But, after the so-called Bush tax cuts kicked-in, the rate leveled until the housing bubble broke.  Not one of our best economic minds in Washington predicted the housing bubble crisis. Within weeks of the crash, some of them were on television claiming the American economy was stronger than ever and was only going to get better. They were wrong! so,  let’s move on to the  electons of 2008. It does not matter that Bush was not at fault for what happened; it happened on his watch and so he gets the blame. That is the way it works in American politics. The Republican Party could have put up the prince of Peace as their candidate and the Democrats could have put up a derilict from skidrow as their candidate and the Democratic candidate was going to win! That was a given. The Democratic Party machinery and deep pocket supporters like George Soros are PUMPED! They know exactly who they want to be our next president. They want the dar left leaning, former Fist lady, Hillary Clinton. This is going to be a watershed election. America is going to have their firs woman president. But, something happened on the way to the forum, didn’t it? A unkown first term Senator from Chicago, who happened to be black and happen to be a radical black and a Marxist, decided to throw his hat into th e ring even though his only claim to fame was voting “present”. This nobody was going to challenge the Party’s chosen horse, Hillary Clinton. Well, these things happen. People do enter political races they know they can’t win just to get name recognition for running seriously in the future. But, the people running Senator Obama’s campaign were very experienced operatives from the Chicago Democrat machine. Candidate Obama won Iowa. It was a new ballgame. The Democratic party machinery and people like Soros think their prayers have finally been answered. What could possibly be better. Both of the candidates were extreme leftists. America was either going to have its first woman president or their first black president. This election was going to be truly historic. Eventually the big bucks switched to Obama and he won.

I apologize for the length of this post, my friends, but please bear with me.

We could talk about many things from Obama’s first term in office. But, let’s take a look at his foreign policy. Particularly, let’s look at his policies on the Middle East. Obama is sworn into office and the payoff to Hillary is that she becomes the Secretary of State. Very early on, the State Department brings a number of young Arabs form countries in Northern Africa to attend a program where they are taught how to use social networking technology to organize protests against their tyrant governments. The Arab Spring is born. Meanwhile the president made is tour to Cairo and offered the hand of friendship to the Muslim world. Obama promises that there will be a new era of US relations with that part of the world. We know by Mr. Obama’s middle name and by the books that “someone” wrote about him that he has an affinity for the religion of Islam. Soon America’s foreign policy in the Middle East takes a 180  degree turn. Long time ally Mubarak in Egypt has to go. The old syphilitic Gadaffi who had behaved himself since Ronald Reagan put the fear of Allah in him had to go. It was immediately obvious to conservatives that the idealistic young people who started the protests were not going to win the day. It was obvious that the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic group were going to take control. We were right. The Arab Spring spread to Syria. A civil war has raged there for months. Over 36,000 people have died. And, recently we learned from the information leaking out about the Benghazi fiasco that our government has been trying to buy back the huge Gadaffi cash of arms which had fallen into the hands of al Qaeda groups and other radical Islamic groups. It is becoming clear that the Obama administration was funneling those arms through Turkey to be delivered to some of the rebel groups that are trying to get rid of Syrian president Assad. So, what had been a reasonably stable Middle East for forty years is now totally destabilized. Why!

Now, I want to ask you, dear readers, a question. Do any of you buy into the story that Barack Obama is a very smart man? I am sorry but I have yet to see any evidence that would support that Obama is very smart. When he goes off script, he has a hard time talking in complete sentences. Barack Obama is not very smart. He is, however, a very capable actor. He is playing the role of a smart man, in my opinion.  So, my next question is this. Do you really believe that Barack Obama planed for this complex change in foreign policy in the Middle East all by himself? And, if not, then who?

I know this post is way too long but I am almost done. Please watch this short video of an interview with retired General Wesley Clark. I snatched from the Spellchek blog. Please listen very closely. The interview took place in 2007 but the General is talking about a meeting that took place before our war with Iraq was announced.

So, now it should be evident that the destabilization of seven Middle East countries, wich we are watch unfold right now,  was planned long before Barack Obama took office. Barack Obama is working off of a script that was written no sooner than 2002 and maybe much sooner. So, I ask you to ask yourself some questions:

  • Who, inside or outside of government, makes these kinds of long-term plans and how is it that they survives from one administration to another or possibly  over various administrations?
  • What is the objective of this destabilization of the Middle East?
  • How does this plan benefit the United States?

The last two questions are important because there are other countries that have a strategic interest in that region. Russia needs a stable Syria. They want to move their oil and other things through Turkey and through Syria to Syria¡s deep water ports. China, of course, needs a stable Middle East to insure their energy needs. So, one last question. Do these strategic planners for the United States believe that Russia and China are just going to sit on the sidelines and let the US screw up their strategic interests? Is there something bigger going on that we can’t see?

I thank you, dear readers, for your patients with me today. I promise to try to be more efficient in the future.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. On the globalist powers making the decisions on the Middle East, yes, Jim, you point out the deliberate actions of our government to create the New Middle East. Why, is the question. It is obvious the New Middle East is not in our strategic or security interests. Yet we have how many dead and wounded Americans to produce this monster that is made up of enemies of the U.S. Clark is correct on the fact that there was a plan. Not sure he named the exact countries. I think the one key to drawing in George Bush was payback for the threats from Saddam against his father. That is how they got him to go along with it…if I were making an excuse. I think he was fed intel (disinformation) to force his hand. From there, getting Obama and Hillary to finish the job after that….
    Here is a website with the map: http://www.oilempire.us/new-map.html That site has the before and after maps.

    The really bad joke here is how the Arab Spring was sold to the American public as spontaneous and such a great revolution for human rights. Neither are true. Whatever is in store, it isn’t spontaneous and has nothing to do with human rights. I’m not sure how the banksters are playing into this, but oil resources as investments are a large part, I’m sure. How the Russians and Chinese benefit and how we lose…???? If we don’t get rid of the Clintons, Obama & Co., and the rest of the puppets of the globalists…I see no chance going forward for America to survive as we have known it.

    1. It does seem as though our government is setting the stage for war in the Middle East. Who knows when this plan was hatched. But, is the US planning to engage in a war now when the US is broke??? It makes no sense on the face of it. That is why I question if something bigger is going on that we haven’t figured out yet.

  2. “Is America Really On Its Way To Becoming Another European Style Socialist State?”

    To echo a famous lady, You Betcha!

    In a democracy, we get the government we vote for.

    As to the rest of it, I have no idea. Could be a big conspiracy, or it could be gross and serial incompetence by our government. My money is on the latter.

    I am raising my children to have a cosmopolitan outlook. They speak foreign languages and are not afraid of foreign lands. I am sure they can look out for #. I think the Founders’ experiment is pretty much done. We will become Europe, and because of the fiscal facts you cite, we will also meet their fate.

  3. Being broke does cut down on the options the socialist/statists/Democrats have. But they won’t let their religion down. For the glory of the socialist state they will, come hell or high water, try to ram a socialist state down our throats.

  4. I will answer soon the most relevant queston you just asked and answered at the same time.

    I jus want to say now that more investors seem to be joining the prediction of my last two posts post-election.

  5. The middle east unraveling is a conundrum. Some wacko left wing ideology? I suggest some form of Obama anger he chooses to unleash. I think the man is unstable. He has his drone strike list he seems to enjoy. Watch out for Valerie jarrett. The two of them together are sickos together. IMHO.

  6. I think you are probably right Jim, what we see happening in the Middle East is part of a plan that people have been trying to put into motion for many years and they finally got (or made sure they inserted) a president who would willingly go along with the plan. Obama didn’t dream this up all on his own, he is but a puppet.

  7. I am of the same opinion that this has been in the making for years, doesn’t make a difference what political party is in office. There are those, the Rothschilds and Bilderbergs that are probably part of the Shadow government that is controlling what is happening here. Do you ever get the feeling, that short of the Electoral votes being rigged, we as citizens voting, really make no difference in the elections anymore. The powers that be are the deciding factor in who is put into the Presidents slot. Obama is just a figure head to trott out and have him read a perfectly worded script…problem is, if he goes off script, that is where he gets in trouble and the damage control has to be activated. I would have thought they could come up with a different candidate, but thinking about it now, maybe they are looking 4 years further out from now, but for what reason, I don’t know.

  8. Powerful people inside and outside of our government and other governments of the world are indeed pulling the strings. How the middle east fits into the ultimate goal of one world government is something I can’t unravel but it is indeed part of the equation. Bringing down the the superpower US economically or by other means is essential to their goal.

  9. To answer the question of America becoming a European socialist state, I’d say the billion rounds of hollowpoint purchases say its more like a Chinese socialist state.

    The United States is being used as a mule by the globalists. The built up military here and world wide bases are being used to remake the world the way the one worlders want it. Read The Grand Chessboard (1997) and he lays how which countries need to be controlled, in order to have control of Eurasia, the linchpin to global domination.

    Also note that Hillary and Obama went to the Bilderberg meeting in May 2008 and the press covering them was diverted to another plane. Always remember that Obama is third generation CIA before any other label you want to put on him.

    1. rM, you have been on this along time. What can you actually accuse anyone of. That it seems is our dilemma. They are always acting in the shadows. So, how can we ever expose them on some specific something they have done?

      1. I heard that. That’s why they built up the security state in 1947 with the NSA Act. They use that plausible deniability stuff to the hilt. It’s a case where they’re all guilty, yet no one is “guilty”.

        I’d say start with Jon Corzine and his bilking of millions with Global Crossing.
        You can start with Logan Act violations with the Bilderberg group and Bohemian Grove while your at it.

        I think this Benghazi incident is a great wake up call for many who wishfully thought that everyone in our military and intelligence communities were untarnished with the corruption in Washington.

        If you really want to go through the law, we can finds lots of specific things to take down certain people with. Stuff like the Franklin Scandal abounds. Problem is, they’ve been packing the courts with their peeps for decades now.

  10. If “the big boys” really have been pulling the strings, WE THE PEOPLE have been their puppets for a very long time. Not a comforting thought, huh?

    I personally know some details of someone who worked in what is termed “the shadow government.” He worked behind the scenes to bring down the USSR and was a conservative ideologically. He had a lot to do with engineering the election of Reagan and a lot to do with the engineering of other matters as well. You rarely saw the face or the name of this man in the shadows — until his obituary appeared, that is. He died rich beyond what I can hardly imagine. Really!

    Now, the shadow government has moved on to remake the Middle East. But into WHAT?

  11. This was exactly what I thought when I saw the headline–America can’t become a socialist state, because it is growing broke. At the same time, freedoms are being eroded and the power of the executive branch is growing at an exponential pace. What a mess we have created for ourselves.
