Will the Winds of Change Blow Venezuelan style anti government solutions north?

Updated on September 18, 2009

“Freedom of expression must be limited,” that’s what Venezuela’s Attorney General Luisa Ortega said late last week when defending tough new legislation which would restrict what can be said on radio and television in Venezuela. No sooner had this statement been made did Venezuela announce the closing of some 34 radio stations!

What’s this got to do with America? Well let’s look at how objection to Premier Obama’s Health Care Dictate is being dealt with. On August 07, 2009, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi forcefully spoke out against individuals protesting her party's nationalized healthcare proposal, saying “I've seen the videos of those inbred church-going rednecks attending the town hall meetings, and I've got to say they make me want to puke, President Obama is trying to make their lives better, and all they want to do is ask questions. Well, I've got your answers right here (grabbing her crotch), you filthy, mutant Nazi racists from Hell." This from the second in line for the Presidency of this once great country!

What about another prominent outspoken supporter of Obama Care; what does she have to say about legitimate American protest? Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said on Bill Press’ Radio Show, that it’s not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters; the media must look into their views. She continued on saying, “I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed, I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers.” She concluded with “I think that if you put the microphones in front of them, if you do the interviews, they’ll tell you what they believe, what they think.” God forbid people that disagree with the Anointed One should be exposed as the Racists they truly are for that would be the only reason one could possibly disagree with the establishment of an Oligarchy replacing the Capitalistic System our Founding Fathers gave us!

Finally, look no further than the Premier’s own self appointed Czars; Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd has pledged to silence the Talk Radio critics of the president. He like the Premier he serves, share a common hero — Saul Alinsky — who wrote the community organizer’s bible, “Rules for Radicals.” It speaks of confrontation or, as candidate Obama put it, of “getting in their faces” as a way to obtain power, not from the people or for the people, but over the people. Lloyd has written that we make too much of the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of speech and the press and as a result thereof he wants control over what we hear on talk radio and cable news and read on the internet! Hello, the Winds of Change have already blown several Chavez like leftist north and they landed right in the middle of the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration!

Back to the other Oligarchy, Venezuela! More than a dozen of the country’s 34 radio stations have been ordered shut down by thegovernment as part of President Hugo Chavez’s drive to extend his socialist revolution to the media. Here’s an area where Obama has the upper hand over Chavez, except for FOX and Talk Radio, he (Obama) already has the full support of the Main Stream Media in this country! During the Presidential campaign of 2008 MSNBC's Chris Matthews along with fellow supposedly objective journalist Keith Olbermann were discussing a Barack Obama speech. Matthews; who, in the past, has both cried over an Obama speech and compared him to Jesus admitted, “I have to tell you, when I hear a Barack Obama speech I feel this thrill going up my leg.” Later during an appearance on today’s Morning Joe, with Joe Scarborough Matthews declared that his job as a journalist is “to help this new president succeed! No Chris your job as a journalist is to report the truth, not help create subterfuge and obfuscation so as not to expose a Socialist Agenda!

Moving back south, Venezuelan government watchdog Conatel announced the 13 radio stations would be closed because they failed to comply with regulations! What regulations? The same regulations Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd aspires to impose which would place restrictions on Talk Radio in an attempt to silence the Talk Radio critics of the president! And in a manner that would make the Imperial One himself proud, Barrack Hussein Obama, Chavez defended his actions by announcing on state television. “We’ve recovered a bunch of stations that were outside the law, that now belong to the people and not the bourgeoisie.” Translation “We’re closing down a bunch of stations that have criticized me because we can.” This is Political Spin even Obama and his Obamatrons could be proud of!

So, just as the Winds of War accurately depicts the course of events leading the world into and through the World War II era so now the Winds of Change gives a brief snippet into the steady progression to the Left this President is moving this former great Democracy toward his envisioned Oligarchy!

      You two are great! But BJ; as far as your non partisan group is concerned, sorry, I don’t do non-partisan. That’s where we lose. You can’t trust Democrats. The supposedly conservative Blue Dogs, when it comes down to it and standing up to Pelosi, THEY TURN INTO LAP DOGS! The only solution is to elect Republicans!

      Sheri, sorry for scaring you but as you know, this is ONE SCARY ADMINISTRATION

      Thanks for scaring the CRAP out of me. I can easily see BO and the goon squad--along with their media co-conspirators trying this very thing! That is precisely why we must ALL stay vigilant and informed about their sleazy dealings. I can see them making a list of the names of all us bloggers and trying to shut us down or even worse!! I am so happy that I found and joined this community because it feels so comforting to know that there are others like me who see this evil menace for what he is. OH-sorry I didn't mention his race--isn't that why we don't support him? Sorry Jimmy Carter--you peanut farming NUTBAG.

      I expect to see him on Chris Mathews Hard Ball (what a misnomer) several times this week. You’re correct; the winds are blowing at hurricane force level!

      Dear Partisan Patriot,

      The winds of "change" are gusting to unbearable proportions. Just today I wrote about the White House compiling a list of comments made on social networking sites. I did it in Fairy Tale form, but the seriousness of what is going on comes through. The President avoids Fox News like the plague, because he can only deal with networks who kiss his you know what!
