The Obama administration has not been able to bring about a congressionally approved budget for our country in over 1,180 days. Even a mom-and-pop grocery store has to have a budget to keep itself in business. According to President Obama’s official schedule, on July 21, 2012, he held the first cabinet meeting since January 31, 2012. By that time, however, he had attended over 130 “bread and circuses” meetings.
Nevertheless, a Gallup poll published on August 13, 2012, shows that 50% of the American population approves of the job President Obama is doing. This brings me back to the disinformation propounded by our leftist media. Its current attacks on Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, have the goal of keeping people hooked on the administration’s “bread and circuses” show, in order to prevent their focusing on what these uniquely important elections really mean: Are we going to maintain the United States as the leader of the free world, or are we going to allow our country to drift off into a welfare-state irrelevance? Are we heading toward President Obama’s new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared, or are we going back to the traditional American policy in which prosperity is earned?
Now we learn that top representatives from the liberal media—and only from there—are scheduled to moderate the upcoming presidential debates. That would entrap our election process in a new tangle of network disinformation. PJ Media CEO Roger L. Simon is convincingly advocating a change. I strongly applaud his suggestion, but I see little chance of its success. The liberal media will still be in charge, and our only chance is to start a parallel offensive aimed at exposing its disinformation.
Today it is considered bad manners even to mention the word Marxism. That is another success achieved by the leftist media’s disinformation offensive. But I cannot stop repeating, over and over again, that if you know Karl Marx’s Manifesto, you will inevitably think that Marx himself must have written the goals of the Democratic Party’s 2012 electoral campaign. All ten of Marx’s planks of communism are in them.
In a recent open letter I sent to America’s Survival conference on “Vetting Obama” held at the National Press Club, I note that Marx’s Manifesto has just turned 164 years old, and all it has bequeathed us is a bunch of former Marxist countries that ended up looking like trailer camps hit by a hurricane, with their former leaders roasting in Dante’s Inferno.
All Marxists who have ever risen to lead a country have ended up in hell—all, from Trotsky to Stalin, Tito to Zhivkov, Enver Hoxha to Mátyás Rakosi, Sékou Touré to Nyeree. All had their “bread and circuses” days of temporary glory, but all ended in eternal disgrace. Some, like Khrushchev and Ceausescu, were even found unworthy of having their final resting place marked by any gravestone. A few remnants, like the Castro brothers and Hugo Chavez, are still hanging onto their “bread and circuses,” but they have a place in hell reserved and waiting for them.
I appeal to all my colleagues at PJ Media to talk and write about this truism every single day. I know there are a lot of subjects we need to hash out in our PJ Media, but there should be none more vital to us just now than the subject of the November elections.
For the first time in our history, we voters will be called upon to choose between keeping our country the leader of the world or letting it fall off the map as another “bread and circuses” failure. Redistribution of wealth is stealing, and in the long run, stealing never pays, even when it is committed by the government of a superpower. Remember the spontaneous combustion of the big, bad Soviet Empire.
Let’s hope that our campaign may even help President Obama to abandon his craving for “bread and circuses” and for Marx’s utopian “to each according to his need.” The first black American president should have a place of honor in our country’s history.
