Yes, Obama Eating Dogmeat Matters ...

Yes, Obama Eating Dogmeat Matters
My Brain | 4/21/12 | Alan Levy


"And away from the dinner table I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher) and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)...."---Bark Hussein Obama, writing in Dreams From My Father


Yes, it matters. Yes, it matters a great deal.

This little quote speaks volumes. It shows just how foreign Obama truly is. It shows how foreign his upbringing was. Not only that, it also shows how much the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media sucks at its job.

Now, before we get started, yes, I know that former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers may have ghost written Chairman Obama's books. However, that changes nothing. Even if Ayers ghost wrote the above quote, that doesn't mean it wasn't proofread by the future American dictator, nor does it mean that Ayers wasn't given first hand accounts about Bark's life, this incident included.

Back to the matter at hand.

This quote, among thousands admittedly far more important, illustrates just how foreign Obama's upbringing truly was and how truly foreign his thought processes are. For thousands of years, dogs have been domesticated by humans living in western civilization. Dogs (along with cats) are universally accepted as pets, but not as food. Many western cultures have outlawed the eating of dogs and cats for that purpose. It's a social more. Most folks find eating dogmeat almost as repugnant as polygamy and incest. It simply isn't done by normal people with a normal upbringing.

But yet, in the above quote, Obama is treating it as if it was no big deal, like eating duck pate or escargot. That coudn't be further from the truth. It's barbaric.To a lot folks in western civilization, especially those who consider their pets part of the family like I do, this is almost like admitting that one ate Aunt Gladys for dinner. The very fact that this was included in his autobiography, when there was no real reason to do so, shows just how out of touch Bark Obama truly is with American culture.

The worst thing about it is the fact that the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media isn't making more of this. I know they're doing their doggone best to make sure their Fuhrer gets another term to finish off America, but hey, just once, can't they pretend to be Americans who have a vested interest in American culture ? More importantly, as Mark Levin brilliantly asked, why isn't the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media asking when Bark Obama stoppedeating the flesh of Man's Best Friend ?

Yes, I know I should be writing about Bark Obama's countless scandals, ranging from arming Mexican drug cartels with Operation Fast and Furious to aiding the Muslim Brotherhood take control of Libya. I get it. In the grand scheme of things, this is nowhere near as important as those crimes against humanity. However, we can't lose sight of things like this. After all, snippets like this from Bark Obama's childhood explain why he's the [fill in your favorite curse word here] he is today. What's more important, it's a barometer of what kind of [fill in your favorite curse word here] he'll be if he gets another four years without having to worry about be reelected.

We are on the edge of complete economic, political, and social disaster. I can't gussy it up. I can't make it sound palatable. The truth is what the truth is.

Five Devastating Numbers That Show  Obama's Incompetence

By John Hawkins 4/24/2012


Whether you've had some form of head trauma that has caused  you to like Barack Obama or like all good hearted people, you can't stand him,  his performance has objectively been terrible. Of course, we can debate WHY his  performance has been so bad. His supporters would probably blame Bush,  Republicans in Congress, ATM machines, fairy dust shortages and people  forgetting to click their heels together three times before saying, "There's no  place like home." On the other hand, people who haven't been drinking Barney  Frankosaurus brand Kool-Aid might note that if Obama is going to blame  Republicans for everything that happens while he's President, we might as well  just replace him with a Republican. Whatever the case may be, here are five  devastating numbers that show how poorly America has fared under Barack Obama's  watch.

1) 3 years and 2 months: "The National  Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months  in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush  presidency.

The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush  presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took  office."


Keep in mind that in 2008, when Obama was in full "hope,  change, and bullflop" mode, he actually called Bush "unpatriotic" for  adding so much to the debt which is kind of like being called a traitor by  Benedict Arnold.

2) $9.5 trillion: At a certain point, it does  get a little tedious to keep hammering home how much debt we're piling up, but  it's such an urgent problem that produces so little reaction, that it's nearly  impossible to do otherwise. It's almost like being chained to people in a house  that's burning down, but they're too busy camping out on the couch eating chips  and watching American Idol to bother to save themselves.

This country has already lost its AAA rating, we're 15  trillion dollars in debt, we have 100 trillion dollars in unfunded Social  Security and Medicare liabilities, and barring a major course correction, we're  going to default on our debts and start into a downward spiral that this nation  will not recover from in the lifetime of anyone reading this column. So what is  the Obama Administration doing to tackle an issue so serious that it makes every other problem we have pale  in significance?




Absolutely stunning video!   Please.. take the time.. it's only 4 minutes! Absolutely incredible! This is  the  only video anyone ever needs to watch!   IfIWantedAmericatoFail



The Congressional Budget Office on Friday  released its analysis of President Obama’s 2012 budget proposal and found it  does less to rein in deficits and the debt than the administration had  estimated. CBO estimates Obama's plan would produce 10 years of deficits  totaling $9.5 trillion. By 2021, it would increase the debt held by the public  to 87 percent of gross domestic product.


This is a "sit in the burning house until the roof falls in  and we all die" budget. If we add another $9.5 trillion to the debt over the  next 10 years, it will mean that generations of Americans will have to grow up  in dire poverty, wear sack cloth, and have to eat their dogs to make it through  the winter. On the upside, if American children do have to eat Fido, it may mean they'll grow up to be President  one day.

3) 1091 days: We're now up to 1,091 days  without a budget despite the fact that it's the most basic function of Congress  and it's required by law. There's a simple reason for this: Democrats don't want  to offend the general public by increasing spending or their base by cutting  spending; so they've decided to do nothing. This is kind of like a police  department full of officers who've decided that arresting people is too much of  a hassle; so they're going to sit in the station, eat doughnuts, drink coffee,  and play Angry Birds all day. Worse yet, when Republicans like Paul Ryan have  presented responsible budgets that don't go far enough, but are at least valiant  attempts to take the country in the right direction, they've been criticized by  Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. In other words, not only are the  Democrats not going to do their jobs, they don't want Paul Ryan trying to do  their jobs and to top it all off -- they then complain that the Republicans are  blocking THEM. What a perverse political world it is that we live in when the  Democrats have decided that their best chance of keeping their jobs is to refuse  to do their jobs and then blame the other side for their adamant refusal to  remove their own thumbs from their behinds.

4) $2,170: One of the great ironies of this  election is the still rabid support that black Americans have for Barack Obama.  This is kind of like Columbine High School throwing a "We Sure Do Miss You"  Memorial Rally for Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

When Mr. Obama was inaugurated black  unemployment was 12.6%. 36 months later, it is at a depression era level  15.8%.


* Black teenage unemployment is a jaw dropping 42.3  percent.

* In October 2010, blacks accounted for 22.6 percent of the  then 40.5 million Americans who received food stamp benefits each month. That  figure was projected to rise in 2011. Mark Rank of Washington University  suggests a whopping 90 percent of black children may eventually live in  households that need food stamps.

* In 2007, before Obama took office, white households had a  median net worth of $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households. By the  end of 2009, the median net worth for white households plummeted 24% to $97,860.  But for black households, it dropped 83% to $2,170. The  Chicago Sun-Times called it, “The Disappearing Black Middle Class.”



If a Republican President did the sort of damage to black  Americans that Barack Obama has, it would be called a hate crime.

5) 5 Million: The average unemployment rate  during George Bush's time in office was roughly 5.3% as compared to 8.2% today,  which is part of the longest streak of over 8% unemployment since the Great  Depression. However, because of the way the unemployment rate is calculated,  even those horrific numbers don't give you the full sense of the Mt. Krakatoa-like havoc  that Barack Obama has wreaked on the job market.

When the recession supposedly officially  ended in June, 2009, the labor force participation rate was still  65.7%.


In the latest, much celebrated unemployment report, the labor  force participation rate had plummeted to 63.7%, the most rapid decline in U.S.  history.  That means that under President Obama nearly 5 million Americans  have fled the workforce in hopeless despair.

The trick is that when those 5 million are not counted as in  the work force, they are not counted as unemployed either.  They may  desperately need and want jobs.  They may be in poverty, as many  undoubtedly are, with America suffering today more people in poverty than in the  entire half century the Census Bureau has been counting poverty.

In other words, there are 5 million Americans who not only  lost their jobs, but who became so discouraged trying to find a job that they  just gave up. That's definitely a "change," but the only "hope" at this point is  that Obama will be voted out of office so that those people will be able to get  back into the labor market.

A Recovery That Never Comes

A Recovery That Never Comes

By Jeffrey Folks


The President has been promising an economic recovery ever since 2008, when he promised to create 5 million green jobs and to "act quickly to help people stay in their homes." With all the promises Obama made, many voters who supported him expected the economy to begin turning around early in 2009. But then, shortly after his election, Obama let it be known that the economy had been driven "into a ditch" deeper than he had imagined, and the recovery would take some time. Then he discovered that the economy he inherited was not just in a ditch, it was actually a "mess" as well. There were always new excuses for why the recovery never came.

Now it seems, just as the President was prepared to declare "mission accomplished," the economy is slipping back into the ditch, only it's no longer George Bush's ditch. This ditch is entirely of Obama's making. After exhibiting a few "green shoots" earlier this year -- the first real signs of improvement in three years -- the economy is slowing once again. Unemployment and GDP growth are both declining, not improving. Even the President is now admitting there will be "ups and downs" and he's "got a lot more work to do."

The latest indicators point to an economy that is slowing if not headed back into recession. March employment numbers were worse than any economist surveyed by Bloomberg imagined. 120,000 new jobs are not even enough to absorb new entrants in the workforce, much less to bring down unemployment rates. Strangely, the official unemployment rate came down from 8.3 to 8.2%, but it did so because a quarter million Americans left the workforce, many of them filing for disability benefits or choosing to retire early.

Not only is unemployment high, under this President those who are still working have seen their incomes decline by $3000 on average. Pumped into the economy over the last three and a half years, those lost wages would amount to $1.575 trillion. That's even more than Obama squandered on his so-called stimulus in 2009, and it would have been spent a lot more wisely had it been left in the hands of private citizens.

An extra $6,000 per family amounts to almost half of a typical mortgage payment. By one estimate, 26,230,000 foreclosures could have been prevented or significantly delayed if Obama's $787 billion stimulus funding had remained in private hands. Had wages not declined in aggregate by $1.575 trillion, homeowners would have retained twice the income needed to prevent an anticipated 25 million foreclosures.

Yet this President has not even acknowledged the suffering of every American worker whose income is $3,000 less than it was when he took office. Obama is so extraordinarily arrogant, and so detached, that the widespread suffering of ordinary people makes no impression on him. At the same time, he rushes to attend to the wishes of billionaire green energy investors, union bosses, and environmental activists -- the very ones who have caused America's economy to stagnate.

Things are bad at present, but they aren't likely to get better anytime soon. Respected forecaster IHS Global Insight predicts that the economy will slow to 2.1% GDP growth by July. Given current policies, with Obama's plan for huge tax increases and with new regulations scheduled to take effect after the election, the long-term outlook is not any better. For all of 2012, BusinessWire predicts U.S. GDP growth of 2.2% and for 2013-2016 only 2.3%.

To put that in perspective, U.S. long-term GDP growth, excluding periods of recession, has averaged 4% over the past 200 years. President Obama inherited an economy that was already in recovery by the end of the first quarter of 2009. But since Obama took office, GDP growth has averaged 1.42%, about a third of what one would expect.


That low level of growth might be enough to force millions of Americans into unwelcome retirement, but it is not enough to bring the actual jobless rate down. It's not even enough to absorb the millions who are about to graduate this spring.

Obama has failed to deliver on the most important promise of the 2008 campaign: his promise of jobs and prosperity for all. Now he is repeating that promise, but like the child who cried wolf, no one really believes him. Americans have been waiting for a vigorous economic recovery for 39 months, and this president has failed to deliver. All we've had is one excuse after another. It's George Bush's fault. It's Greece's fault. It's the Japanese tsunami. It's corporations sitting on their cash. It's Big Banks refusing to lend. It's the price of gas. Obama has more excuses than Rihanna has Facebook friends.

But excuses don't bring about an economic recovery. Not until Obama's anti-growth policies are reversed will America return to normal GDP growth. That means ending handouts for losers like green energy, public sector unions, and socialized medicine, and allowing the free market to return to a normal business cycle. At this point in the cycle, GDP growth should be closer to 5% and unemployment down to 5.5%, as they were under George Bush during his fourth year in office. Instead they stand at 2.4% (for the last half of 2011) and 8.2%, respectively.

For the ordinary American, things just get worse, but Obama keeps mumbling "be patient" and laying the blame elsewhere. Tax the rich, he shouts, and that will make things better. How will taxing the rich create jobs? Or making inflammatory speeches in front of the United Auto Workers, or throwing yourself into the Trayvon Martin case by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon"? That kind of divisive rhetoric does not create a single job. It only divides and weakens the country. 

More Americans have lost their jobs and their homes, and seen their incomes decline under Obama than under any president in history, and all of this in just one term. Yet this President, who has destroyed the dream of success for so many, imagines he has "a lot more work to do." Just imagine how many dreams Obama could kill in another four years.

Jewish Ire ‘Could Cost Obama Florida’

Michael Tomasky in Daily Beast: Obama lost support of 16% of Jews, was outmaneuvered by Netanyahu.

By Gil Ronen

Liberal journalist Michael Tomasky, in a column for the Daily Beast / Newsweek, voiced concern Tuesday that President Barack Obama has lost 16% of his support among U.S. Jews and may lose the elections in key states like Florida, come November. Tomasky, who is also the editor-in-chief of Democracy, analyzed Obama’s first term vis-à-vis Israel and concluded that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu outfoxed the President.

Tomasky cites a recent poll by the Public Religion Research Institute, in which 62% of 1,004 American Jews surveyed said that they would vote for Obama, noting that this is a sizeable downturn from 2008, when Obama got 78% of the Jewish vote. The fact that Obama had a similar level of support in April of 2008 does not comfort Tomasky, who notes that “April 2008 was the height of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright affair, and thus the one point that was likely to be Obama’s nadir with Jews.”

If the current level of Jewish support for Obama holds, estimates Tomasky, it would be “good enough to carry New York and California (obviously), but maybe not Florida.”

Obama might regain half of the lost support by November, but making up the rest may not be possible, the pundit writes, because of Obama’s behavior toward Israel in the past three years.

In the Obama administration’s early days, he explains, “Obama talked pretty tough with Netanyahu. He had four fifths of the Jewish vote and thought he had capital… This was back when Obama still thought he really could change Washington through force of his personality.”

At the time, Tomasky, too, believed Obama had Netanyahu cornered, and that even Congress was behind the President. But he was wrong, he now admits.

“I wrote that Congress, that always reliable friend of AIPAC, had changed its stripes. This is what I was told at the time. There was even a meeting where Bibi was taken aback, told by Democratic friends and sycophants in the House that things were different now and that he’d better play ball. But he didn’t. He went to his friends on the other side of the aisle, he stalled, he rebuffed, and he won.”

Based on Obama’s recent speeches at AIPAC and the Holocaust Museum, and on the audience’s responses to them, the writer gleans that Obama has made an about-face and is trying to woo back Jewish support he lost when he pressured Israel to make concessions.

In a reaction to Tomasky’s piece, Jonathan Tobin writes in Commentary that “the president’s cynical Jewish charm offensive isn’t likely to win back many disenchanted voters who know the difference between conviction and an election-year conversion.”

While the majority of Jewish voters are partisan Democrats who are unlikely to oppose the party’s nominee no matter what he does, writes Tobin, “there is a critical mass of Jewish swing voters — whose numbers may exceed the 16 percent difference between Obama’s current level of Jewish support and his 2008 total — who are sufficiently disgusted with his overall performance and specifically concerned about his record on Israel to possibly vote for a moderate conservative alternative this fall.”

Another influential columnist, David Goldman — who writes as Spengler in the Asia Times — analyzed this Jewish rage in an interview with Arutz Sheva in 2010. In the interview, which “went viral” at the time, Goldman said that Jewish leaders felt they had been “swindled” by Obama and quoted a top Jewish campaign donor who used the word ‘sociopath’ to describe the president.

Major Fast and Furious Player Who  Misled Congress Jumping DOJ Ship

By Katie Pavlich



Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich, Obama's Department of  Justice point man for communications, or in other words, chief obfuscator about  Operation Fast and Furious, is jumping ship. Weich has accepted a pposition as  dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law. University officials have confirmed Weich will start his new pposition  in July.

"During this time of considerable transition in legal  education and the legal profession, it's important to have leadership with integrity and vision," said Robert Bogomolny, the university's  president. "Ron Weich embodies those qualities. I look forward  to working with him, and I know our students, faculty, staff and alumni will be  energized by his arrival." As for Weich, "I'm aware of the  history and it doesn't concern me," he said. "I'm confident that in partnership  with others, we'll make sure the law school has the resources it needs to be  effective."

As a reminder, Weich is the man who signed and delivered a  letter to Senator Charles Grassley on February 4, 2011 about Fast and Furious  that was so misleading and full of falsehoods, that it was eventually withdrawn  eight months later. The letter stated:

At the outset, the allegation described in your January 27  letter-that ATF "sanctioned" or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault  weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them into Mexico-is false. ATF  makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and  prevent their transportation to Mexico......

I also want to assure you that ATF has made no attempt to  retaliate against any of its agents regarding this matter. We recognize the  importance of protecting employees from retaliation relating to their disclosers  of waste, fraud and abuse. ATF employees receive annual training on their rights  under the Whistleblower protection Act, and those with knowledge of waste, fruad  or abuse are encouraged to communicate directly with the Department's Office of  the Inspector General.

Both of these assertions are lies, or in Eric Holder's words  are "inaccurate."





Not only did the ATF knowingly allow 2500 AK-47 sstyle and .50  caliber rifles to walk into the hands of dangerous Mexican drug cartels, ATF  whistleblowers were mandated to do so, and then were retaliated against for speaking out against  the program. Operation Fast and Furious has resulted in the murder of Border  Patrol Agent Brian Terry and at least 300 Mexican citizens.



“Allowing loads of weapons that we knew to be destined for  criminals, this was the plan. It was so mandated.” –Special Agent John Dodson  ATF Phoenix Field Division, June 15, 2012.

So, now Weich, the guy who issued a letter in an attempt to  mislead Congress about the Obama Justice Department's fatal Operation Fast and  Furious, is going to head one of our law schools. Great news, since  every law student should have a dean willing to submit false information to  Congress.

Los hispanos y las elecciones presidenciales


Por: Frank de Varona

Barack Obama ganó la mayoría del voto latino o hispano en 2008. Prometió a los hispanos que durante su primer año, su gobierno haría una reforma comprensiva sobre la inmigración y que resolvería el problema de los 12 millones de indocumentados. No cumplió con su promesa a los hispanos ni en su primer año como presidente, ni en su segundo año. Durante esos dos primeros años el presidente Obama y su Partido Demócrata contaban con una amplia mayoría en el Senado y en la Cámara de  Representantes y por  lo tanto hubieran podido pasar cualquier ley con sólo el voto de los demócratas. De hecho, pasaron el Obamacare sin un solo voto del Partido Republicano. A diferencia de otros presidentes, que buscaron apoyo bipartidista en leyes importantes, Obama ignoró al Partido Republicano durante los dos primeros años de su mandato.


"El presidente no sólo incumplió con su promesa de la reforma de inmigración, sino que también ha deportado más hispanos indocumentados que ningún otro presidente en nuestra historia. Ahora pensando en las elecciones de noviembre de 2012, Obama ha disminuido las deportaciones. Quizás piensa que nosotros los hispanos tenemos mala memoria y nos olvidaremos que él es el “Gran Deportador”.

La población hispana de los Estados Unidos continúa aumentado rápidamente y ya somos más de 50 millones. Cada día se inscriben más latinos para votar al hacerse ciudadanos. En las elecciones de 2008 los hispanos demostraron su fuerza política y 9.7 millones fueron a votar. De acuerdo con el periódico Wall Street Journal se estima que entre 11.8 y 12.2 millones de latinos irán a votar en 2012. El voto latino puede ser decisivo en estados que están en juego y que a veces lo gana un partido o el otro. Entre los estados de este grupo se encuentran Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Nuevo México y Carolina del Norte. Es por eso que Obama le está prestando mucha atención a la comunidad hispana de nuestra nación. Obama ha hecho poco por los latinos, excepto empobrecerlos con su fracasada política económica.

La tasa de pobreza entre los hispanos se incrementó más que entre cualquier otro grupo étnico en los Estados Unidos, de acuerdo con el Centro Pew Hispano. El nivel de pobreza en 2006, siendo George W. Bush presidente, era de 20.6%. En 2010, bajo la presidencia de Obama, la pobreza aumentó a 26.6%. En 2011 casi el 30% de los hispanos viven en la pobreza de acuerdo con el Buró del Censo. El aumento de los hispanos en índice de pobreza fue de 2.256 millones.

En marzo de 2012, de acuerdo con las estadísticas del gobierno, hay un desempleo de 8.2% en nuestra nación y entre los hispanos el número de desempleados es de 10.3%. El número de latinos desempleados en marzo de 2012 es de 2.491 millones. Hay que recordar que las cifras del gobierno no incluyen a los desempleados que ya no buscan trabajo. Las verdaderas cifras de desempleo son mucho mayores.

La revista Newsmax reportó el 21 de abril de 2012 que el gobierno federal se gastará este año $668 billones en programas para combatir la pobreza, que representa un aumento de 41% de los $193 billones de gastos cuando Obama asumió la presidencia. No nos debe sorprender que el tema del desempleo y los problemas económicos sean los asuntos más importantes en estas elecciones para los hispanos y para el resto del país. Como el resto del pueblo, el 56% de los hispanos están descontentos con la dirección hacia donde se dirige nuestra nación.

Mike Brownfield en su artículo publicado el 15 de abril de 2012 en el sitio web del Heritage Foundation explicó que entre los hispanos registrados como votantes el 35% dice que son conservadores, el 32% reporta que se ven como moderados y el 28% se describe como progresistas. El presidente Obama, el más radical de nuestra historia, pretende ser moderado y hasta conservador y en algunos de sus discursos usa en vano el nombre de Ronald Reagan.  El hijo de presidente Reagan, Michael Reagan, ha dicho que su padre nunca hubiera estado de acuerdo con la política de Barack Obama. La realidad es que el presidente Obama nos quiere llevar hacia el socialismo tipo europeo, a pesar que los países de Europa están abandonando el socialismo rápidamente e implementando  políticas de austeridad económica porque están al borde de la quiebra.

Obama ha despilfarrado nuestro dinero, pidiendo prestado 41 centavos de cada dólar que ha gastado y ha endeudado a nuestra nación unos $5 trillones durante su primer mandato. El desempleo se encuentra a más del 8% y tenemos una creciente inflación en el precio de la gasolina y en todos los productos de primera necesidad. No dejemos que Obama nos engañé una vez más.

Recientemente el presidente Obama le ha declarado la guerra a la Iglesia católica y la mayoría de nosotros los hispanos somos católicos. Nuestro obispos y cardenales nos han dicho recientemente que no debemos obedecer las leyes injustas y anti constitucionales del gobierno de Obama. Los católicos y grupos aliados han comenzado a protestar en 140 ciudades de nuestra nación. Debemos recordar que nunca antes en la historia de los Estados Unidos la Iglesia católica había pedido desobediencia civil a leyes injustas, arbitrarias y anti constitucional de otros presidentes.

Las elecciones presidenciales de 2012 son las más importantes de nuestra generación y decidirán si continuamos o no por el mal camino que nos lleva el presidente Obama.

LUCHA CONTRA LA POBREZA El triunfo del capitalismo

Por José Carlos Rodríguez

El Banco Mundial acaba de publicar su informe Indicadores Mundiales de Desarrollo 2012, donde indaga en si se está avanzando en la consecución de los Objetivos del Milenio.

Son ocho esos objetivos, el último de los cuales es la creación de un gobierno económico mundial, del que la propia institución, claro está, no quedaría muy lejos. El primero es el más importante: reducir la pobreza extrema y el hambre a la mitad en 2015, teniendo como referencia los índices de 1990.

El informe de 2012 sólo tiene datos hasta 2008, aunque cuenta con datos provisionales hasta 2010. Los datos son relevantes en sí mismos, ya que la reducción de la pobreza en el mundo es el primer problema al que nos enfrentamos. Y también son relevantes para observar en qué medida contribuye el capitalismo a tal objetivo.

¿Qué dicen los datos? Mirémoslos en conjunto. Trazada la línea de la pobreza extrema en 1,25 dólares al día (dólares constantes de 2005 y en paridad del poder de compra), en 1981 el 52,2 por ciento de la población mundial quedaba por debajo de ella. En 1990, que es cuando se fija el punto de partida de los objetivos del milenio, el porcentaje era ya nueve puntos inferior: 43,1 por ciento. Cayó después otros nueve puntos en nueve años (34,1 por ciento en 1999), y doce en los nueve siguientes (22,4 por ciento en 2008, último año para el que hay datos completos).

El Banco Mundial dice:

Teniendo en cuenta los puntos de partida de 1990, el progreso se ha acelerado en la última década, arrancando a millones de personas de la pobreza, llevando a millones de niños a la escuela y reduciendo drásticamente la pérdida de vidas humanas debida a causas que se pueden prevenir.

Lo cierto es que en 2008 casi se logra el objetivo de reducción de la pobreza extrema previsto para 2015. Además,

las estimaciones preliminares de 2010 muestran que la tasa de pobreza extrema cayó aún más, con lo que se ha alcanzado el objetivo global (...) de reducir la pobreza mundial cinco años antes.

Siempre se señalan otros aspectos de la vida que indican carencias. Son aspectos distintos de la pobreza, y a medida que ésta va remitiendo esos otros problemas también lo hacen. Por ejemplo, la mortalidad en los países en desarrollo ha pasado de 98 por mil nacimientos a 63 en 2010.

Pero la incidencia del capitalismo en la pobreza se ve aún mejor si miramos la evolución por regiones. El Extremo Oriente ha sido la zona que con más fervor ha abrazado el capitalismo en las últimas décadas. Pues bien, ahí la pobreza se ha reducido del 77,2 por ciento del total de la población en 1981 al 14,3 de 2008 (del 84 al 13,1 en China). La región más orillada por la globalización, la que más se ha mantenido al margen del comercio internacional, viene siendo el África Subsahariana, si bien a partir del cambio de siglo las cosas han empezado a cambiar. Es la que padece el peor índice de pobreza; de hecho, aumentó entre 1981 y 1993 (del 51,5 al 59,4 por ciento), si bien luego –curiosamente, a medida que se ha ido abriendo al resto del mundo– se ha reducido, lentamente en un principio (57,9 por ciento en 1999) y luego ya más rápidamente (47,5 por ciento en 2008).

En definitiva, año a año se confirma que el capitalismo está rescatando de la pobreza a millones y millones de personas, y a una velocidad desconocida en la historia. La mejora es una aspiración legítima de la humanidad, y el progreso material no sólo es bueno por sí, sino que está asociado a otros bienes morales que también consideramos valiosos. El capitalismo, la economía de mercado, la producción libre y el libre intercambio están en el centro de esa ingente transformación que se está produciendo tan lejos de donde vivimos.

New Obama slogan has long ties to  Marxism, socialism

By Victor Morton

April 30, 2012

The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into  history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long  and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities  throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign  cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of  socialist publications).”

“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist  political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist,  communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online  encyclopedia explains.

The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European  Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which  would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in  a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word “Forward” with the “O” having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this  weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign’s official  beginning.

There have been at least two radical-left publications named “Vorwaerts” (the German word for “Forward”). One was the daily newspaper of the  Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and  Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany’s SDP, though that  party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly  reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among  the names associated with that publication.

East Germany named its Army soccer club ASK Vorwaerts Berlin  (later FC Vorwaerts Frankfort).

Vladimir Lenin founded the publication “Vpered” (the Russian  word for “forward”) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a  documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet” (though  also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet”).

Conservative critics of the Obama administration have noted  numerous ties to radicalism and socialists throughout Mr. Obama’s history, from  his first political campaign being launched from the living room of two former  Weather Underground members, to appointing as green jobs czar Van Jones, a  self-described communist.

OBAMA'S SLOGAN: "Forward Forward" A Hitler Youth  Anthem

A few people have commented on the fact that Obama's 2012  campaign slogan 'Forward' has a long history in socialist and communist  ideology. The most chilling and in your face example I've seen so far is from  the National Socialist Hitler Youth Anthem "Forward,Forward." The themes of  youth have always been a big part of Obama's campaigns, but seeing his campaign  slogan being sung by actual Hitler Youth Members really brings it all together  and creeps me out. As I said on Twitter, those who fail to learn from history  are doomed to release it as campaign material. Forward Forward.




No nos sorprende a los cubanos que Obama arme su campaña para reelección con el grito de lucha escogido por los marxistas y fascistas desde Hitler hasta Castro, ya que es parte del himno del 26 de Julio que empieza: "Adelante cubanos que Cuba premiará tu heroísmo ..."

Re: Sir john pierdes el tiempo

Obama is headed anywhere but forward




You have to hand it to President Obama and his cabal of re-election strategists; they are masters of illusion. Their newly released Web video and its accompanying campaign slogan, "Forward," are science fiction-level fantastical.

We're all familiar with Obama's penchant for deflecting responsibility and blaming his policy failures on George W. Bush, but after more than three years in office for Obama, it has gone from childish mischief to juvenile delinquency. This is a question for Guinness: Has any other president run for re-election against the record of his retired predecessor?

Indeed, Obama is still feeding us this dodge years beyond its spoil date, apparently hoping we won't realize we have salmonella until he's safely voted in to his second term.

Watch the video. In the words of The Hill's John Easley, "it blames GOP policies for the still-sluggish economy."

It attempts to draw a clear dichotomy between the dark days of the last year of Bush's term and the glorious remedial reign of President Obama, which began in January 2009.

The first period is depicted as one of excessive job losses, the housing and foreclosure crisis, the stock market free fall, and the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, with ominous images of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, the sinister masterminds of these disasters, strategically placed throughout, for maximum effect.

The second period begins with the inauguration of President Obama, underscoring his heroic agenda -- the one Obama has cited in placing himself among the greatest American presidents -- the stimulus, the GM and Chrysler bailouts, financial reform, the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," bringing the Iraq War to a close and, of course, the killing of Osama bin Laden. Before the video ends, the video dutifully boasts about Obama's signature "accomplishment," Obamacare, going so far as to include the controversial birth control mandate in his plus column. Likewise with his green energy policies.

According to the video, the most polarizing chief executive in the history of the American presidency is not the cause of our current dreadful economic conditions, about which, in any event, the White House is mostly in denial, as we'll see. Nor is Obama to blame for our nearly unprecedented partisan acrimony. No, the root of our problems is obstructionist GOP Republicans, who -- along with their evil media mouthpieces Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck -- "instead of working together to lift America up ... (have waged) a campaign to tear the president down."

But despite the pernicious efforts of the GOP and its loudmouth conservative co-conspirators to thwart President Obama's salutary agenda, Obama has persevered and triumphed. That's right; his record is not one of failure but one of extraordinary achievement against this right-wing hydra and the multifaceted adversity it has hurled at him.

In fact, the White House would have us believe the economy is doing pretty well. "The president's stimulus plan saved up to 4.2 million jobs" and has given us steady economic growth, and the manufacturing sector is going gangbusters.

What this little clip doesn't tell you -- apart from the meaningless and immeasurable metric of "saved jobs," which has now been further diluted to the ludicrous rendering "saved up to" -- is how much these possibly or possibly not saved jobs cost the American taxpayer. It doesn't reveal Obama's miserable record in creating new private-sector jobs or that overall, he has delivered us a net loss of millions of jobs and unemployment at levels consistently 60 percent higher than what economists consider normal.

It doesn't report that taxpayers lost billions on his vaunted auto bailouts or that through his abuses of power, secured creditors were literally cheated out of their money.

The video conveniently fails to mention that Obama has rightfully earned his nickname "The Food Stamp President" with the objectively measurable skyrocketing increases in government dependency payouts during his term, a great portion of which cannot be blamed on the recession, which his policies grossly worsened anyway. It doesn't disclose that Obamacare will cost nearly twice what Obama promised or that Dodd-Frank is likely to exacerbate the very problems it is ostensibly designed to prevent.

The video casually glosses over Obama's real record on green jobs, the wasted billions and the shameless corporatist corruption. It doesn't showcase his gutting of the military or his plans for radical nuclear disarmament.

But the most gaping hole in this propaganda piece is its glaring omission of the debt crisis Obama has engineered, his abdication of leadership in failing to pressure his party's Senate majority to produce a budget -- even a phony, superficial one -- in more than 1,000 days, and his egregious refusal to work on entitlement reform and balancing the budget.

Team Obama is gifted in community organizing, but not even these wizards can re-create reality to make Obama's record appear anywhere north of calamitous failure. This "progressive" president is headed anywhere but forward.
