America’s Socialist In Chief… Obama Admits “I Actually Believe in Redistribution” …Flashback 2008: Obama Wants to Spread Wealth Around

America’s Socialist in Chief–
Via Drudge:

Touché, Mother Jones—

From the video: At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”

UPDATE: Flashback 2008–
Obama wants to spread the wealth around.

Barack Obama taught Alinsky redistributive principles at university.

    So there’s a good question for the debates: “President Obama, do you still believe in the redistribution of wealth?”
    Wonder which in-the-bag, liberal media lapdog might ask it?

    The Book to Defeat Obama: Stanley Kurtz’s Spreading the Wealth


    The unfortunate title — not an attention-grabber in bookstores —does not covey the breadth of his research, the scholarly yet readable and comprehensive analysis of where the president is coming from, and the nature of the social policy Obama will put into practice if he wins a second term. They amount to an entire gamut of initiatives, some well underway, to redistribute wealth not from the fabled 1% — who really do not have enough to save us from fiscal Armageddon even if the government took 80% of their profits — but from the average, middle-class, hardworking citizens who sought better lives and realized the American dream by moving to the suburbs, where the air is cleaner, the schools are decent, and life is peaceful and integrated.

    These citizens are the very swing voters Obama is now courting; his many TV commercials about helping the middle class target them. What Kurtz reveals in chilling detail is that the group of radicals surrounding the president — names most of us (including me) are not familiar with — are nevertheless as dangerous and extreme in their goals as Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Reverend Jeremiah Wright. While those three are persona non grata in the White House, these unknown radicals are just as important, and they are planning social policy with Obama’s approval.[…………..]

    Obama’s Three-Tiered Wealth Redistribution Plan: Individual, Regional, and Global


    When I first set out to examine the attitudes of the respondents towards Blacks and Whites, I believed that the extent to which a respondent identified with the Black community would determine that individual’s attitudes. In defining the concept of identification or the ability to identify with the Black community, I based my definition on the premise that there is a distinctive Black culture very different from White culture. Elements of Black culture which make it unique from White culture such as its music, its language, the struggles and a “consciousness” shared by its people may be attributed to the injustices and oppressions suffered by this race of people which are not comparable to the experiences of any other race of people through this country’s history. However, with the increasing integration of Blacks into the mainstream society, many “integrated Blacks” have lost touch with the Black culture in their attempts to become adjusted and comfortable in their new culture-the White culture. Some of these Blacks are no longer able to enjoy the qualities which make Black culture so unique or are unable to openly share their culture with other Blacks because they have become so far removed from these experiences and, in some instances, ashamed of them as a result of their integration.[………………]

    I have been harping on this for a while now, Mitt needs to start hitting Obama hard with Obama’s own words. It is that simple. Go on the offensive, do not hold back. I will guarantee everyone that cares to listen that Mitt will not be called as a winner of any of the debates. It has been called for Obama a long time ago. His best chance to win this election is to start spending his money over the airwaves with Obama’s own words and with devastating pictures of destruction in the middle east and unemployment lines.
    I am really perturbed that he has all this money and yet has been mute on the airwaves. I am perturbed that these so called political gurus advising him has failed badly. Honestly, I think they are sabotaging him and leaking out any friction to their fellow RINO in the media like the idiot that appears on ABC every Sunday show that can’t speak up but makes it a point to slam Mitt. Also people like Jo Scarborough who never liked Mitt and has been doing his best on MSDNC to undermine him hiding under the cloak of resident conservative.
    Again, it is time for Mitt to remove the gloves and put on the brass knuckles and fight like his life depends on it. He needs to show passion and a hint of anger to humanize him. Where are his surrogates? Where is Chris Christy? Where is Condelezza Rice? Where is Sununu? Where are all the governors and republicans? They are hiding under their respective desks like a bunch of cowards. They want the grassroots to do all the job for them to slide out from their hiding places to take the glory. Where is the Speaker of the house? Coward!! He can’t speak out and defend his brand. Imagine if that was Nancy Pelosi, she will be out there spinning and accusing Republican of wanting dirty air and water. I am so sick of these brand of Republicans!! No backbone, inability to articulate their philosophy, inability to drive their message.
    The so called conservative websites do not help matters. They hate one another. Once they see a so called bad news, they blast it as their head line and then run and hide under their desk. Pathetic!!!

    am I the only one who thinks it’s fascinating that we keep finding out things about Our Dear Leader that we always knew were true?

    I wonder… would this pattern of revelation also apply to His Origins? ahem, His Fraudulency’s Constitutional Ineligibility to Occupy the Oval Office, in other words, The Greatest Hoax in American History- the Usurpation of the Presidency with the aid of enablers from the Democrat Party to Moscow and Mecca, and with the resultant near destruction of America

    I still get a kick out of watching old WWII films, I love watching French Patriots and Resistance Fighters get their revenge on the Collaborators- don’t you?

    well then all the uber 1% on the left should go around and start handing out dollars to everyone; and then check the box on the tax form and donate more than their fair share; but, they never seem to want to do that….

  • The Def Leprecon

    I don’t trust gov’t to redistribute anything. It all gets redistributed right into their pals pockets. I’d never check the charity box on a tax form or utility bill. We give direct in our house. to the charities we choose. After we check them out upside down and inside out. All local, stays local, or direct to an individual we know who really needs help. Any shenanigans, like pocketing money, taking the food, clothing or furniture for themselves…and we’ve seen that…I tell them exactly why I won’t donate to them and then I tell them I’m telling everyone else and I do. But those that are legit..we help with time, money and material goods. we stayed involved in all of them so we know what is happening. The gov’t can’t be trusted for jack. Our prez is a Socialist, plain and smple.

    re It is a real serious … issue than this.


    ‘New evidence for a coming lock-down of America is presented to the public by citizen journalists and alternative media on an almost weekly basis, which suggests that whatever is being planned is on a much more accelerated schedule now than ever before.

    The latest, from alternative news hub, indicates that Department of Homeland Security is expecting significant push-back in the very near future, which explains why they would need some 2,500 heavily armored vehicles with DHS Police/Rescue logos:

    What could they need equipment like this for here in the US? They are hitting the road with it. Caravans of National Guard equipment but with new never before seen equipment in the convoys. Take a close look at what is painted on the side of the Black Humvees. The Humvees are fully armored the same standard used by our military.

    The use of the word ‘Rescue’ is an obvious psy op…makes it sound nice and benign, kind of like a life-saving paramedic ambulance and not a domination and death machine. The Posse Comitatus Act is gone.

    They are gearing up for serious business and are training the National Guard, FEMA and Police with them. The latest batch of 2,500 GLS vehicles don’t come more heavily-armored. The GLS is the larger vehicle on the trailer below. It is a deadly serious piece of equipment and they have never been used inside the US until now. All information in this email has been released publicly.

    The United States government is and has been planning for unlikely events like war and societal collapse for many years. This year President Obama has implemented, by Executive Order, doomsday response plans that would essentially give the government an unprecedented ability to nationalize large industries, personal farm and ranch land, and even your skills and labor in the event of a declared emergency. A control grid is being put into place to handle what they know is coming.

    The only question is: What, exactly, is it that is coming to America?’

    What are the MiliPolice Planning On Doing With These Heavily Armored Vehicles?

    Several things are coming to America, a) a coup under the auspice of a national emergency during which Americans and everything in America will be controlled at the point of guns, hence the millions of rounds of ammo federal agencies have purchased, and including communications of all sorts including the Internet, which means Americans will know nothing of the outside world and b) this will coincide with Israel being encircled by Islamists and communications cut off while the ‘real’ Holocaust occurs. Hussein bin Obama will overtly side with Iran and Islamists to correct the ‘mistake’ of Israel. After the deed is done and the smoke clears the national emergency will suddenly be over and those Americans not purged in the coup will resume their existence under a new form of government.

    A lot of people tend to forget that Critical Race Theory {CRT} is simply “marxism” recast from “class struggle” into “race struggle.” oBama, in all essentials, is a {CRT} marxist with his grey matter damaged from too much time on the choom wagon.

    “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

    “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them — like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    The Definition And Portrait Of Stupidity

    [Webster’s definition of stupid is: acting in a careless and/or
    unintelligent manner. I submit that they should have Obama’s
    picture beside the word in their dictionary. Observing the way
    he has conducted himself and witnessing his lack of leadership
    ability, calling his actions stupid is the most generous thing I
    can say about him.

    It was stupid of Obama to choose to neglect nearly 60 percent of
    his Presidential Daily Briefs (PDB) since taking office. The PDB briefs
    presidents on the most critical threats to our country. The Obama
    administration pompously puff their chicken breasts out because,
    as they like to brag, he is so smart that the PDB outline is delivered
    to his residence and he reads it. As if we are to believe reading the
    report is sufficient to understand the gravity of the complexities
    pursuant to same.

    It’s stupid of him to believe that he is above all of the other presidents
    in modern history that, almost never missed said briefings. He believes
    himself to be so superior that as the Government Accountability Institute
    points out, he decided to attend his PDB with even less frequency the
    first half of 2012 – attending only 38 percent. (SEE: Why Is Obama
    Skipping More Than Half Of His Daily Intelligence Meetings;; Marc Thiessen; 9/10/12)

    The New York Times documented that Obama has practiced bowling
    in the White House alley since being elected in order to win a bowling
    contest. (SEE: The Competitor-in-Chief; Jodi Kantor; NY Times; 9/2/12)
    He practices his golf and basketball religiously, but he told Israeli Prime
    Minister Benjamin Netanyahu he was too busy to meet with him. It was
    later revealed that he snubbed Prime Minister Netanyahu to attend a
    campaign event in Nevada.

    It is not my intention to indict every member of the intelligence
    community, but, in this administration, “intelligence” is an oxymoron.
    How do the directors of the various agencies explain doing such a
    deplorable job of intelligence gathering?

    Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf told CBS Face the Nation
    host Bob Shieffer that the embassy attack was “preplanned.” He said:
    “It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who
    entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this
    criminal act since their arrival.”]

    Page 1, #9 Patty: Regarding the former democrat that was converted by listening to Rush’s show. My favorite was the last paragraph:

    You know, it used to be cool to face reality like a man. Now it’s not. Being cool has nothing to do with reality. Reality’s too hard. Reality’s too painful. Reality requires too much. I’d rather live in my self-created cocoon where everything’s fine and dandy, and everybody loves everybody, and those who don’t are a bunch of idiots who we don’t have to spend any time with anyway. Living in a fantasy world is the cool thing to do. Avoiding reality


    That’s the view of the obama’s of the world: You’re nice to muslims, they’ll be nice back and it’ll be kumbaya all over the place. “Living in a fantasy world”. That’s liberals in a nutshell.

    And unless Romney gets elected, he’s going to redistribute healthcare. From the old and the young and the infirm. His first attempt was first order of business in figuring out how to pay for every American being “entitled” with his government takeover.

    716 billion dollars was being stolen from Medicare. That was just to help make the first four years of Obamacare to seem like a real solution that’s working.

  • lizzytalorburton

    When Obama got elected four years ago, I don’t know about you, but the next day when I woke up I had such a terrible feeling about him, such a foreboding, almost like ESP, I kept saying this is a nightmare and at the time I wasn’t sure why but I knew he was no good. I just knew it. Maybe it was the stupid look on his face like he thinks he is a God, or his ugly ears that stick out, I just knew he wouldn’t be good for our country. My friends said to me that he was a nice guy and that he would be alright, but I just knew.

    Anyway, this food stamp thing for so many people and the welfare money for so many also, he just did that on purpose so that no other party other than the democrats would be elected ever again! He has gotten so many millions of people hooked on free money on purpose and who do you think these welfare people will vote for? So, the American people have to decide if they want to be socialists and give all their hard earned money to the bums that don’t work or if they want to be free.

    I want him out because I know he thinks that people who work hard and become wealthy should give a lot of their money to the bums that don’t work. I want him out because he hates Israel and with him or any other democrat in power, I give Israel 10 years and they will be wiped out and Obama knows this. He doesn’t care that Israel is the only friend we have in the Middle East, he doesn’t care because in truth he is anti-American. Israel is a tiny country the exact size of New Jersey and the United Nations years ago proclaimed that they are a country and they are there legally, according to the United Nations. They offered the Palestinians 95% of what they wanted when Clinton was in office but turned that down because they don’t want peace.

    What about THIS redistribution of wealth?
    Taxation is ALWAYS about the redistribution of wealth. Why is anything that directs some of the tax revenue to the poor and the middle income brackets deemed “socialism” or “communism” while directing it to the wealthy is called “capitalism” or (even more laughably) “free markets?”

    Obama used the phrase “spread the wealth” with Joe the plumber, which we already knew. He did not use the word “wealth” in his remarks at Loyola. This seems like thin gruel to make much out of. To my mind, he was talking about a more inclusive distribution of resources. I don’t think Romney wins the election with this weak tea.
