Stossel, 7.8.2011: The Road To Serfdom (Hayek Vs. Keynes)

Stossel, 7.8.2011: The Road To Serfdom (Hayek Vs. Keynes)

Stossel had an excellent show today on the failed Keynesian economics being employed by the liberal/socialist/marxist/communist regime currently in power.  The basis for the show was F.A. Hayek’s ‘On The Road To Serfdom’  with guests including Dr. Ron Paul on spending, printing money and the military, Stuart Varney on Greece and the debt wall, James Delingpole on the green movement as hidden socialists, David Mamet’s conversion from being a brain-dead liberal, Ann Coulter on the mob mentality, and my personal favorite brit, Daniel Hannan, on our road to serfdom.

Herman Cain, Bill Clinton, And Hillarycare

The Daily Caller pulled this eight minute clip of Herman Cain, then CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, challenging Bill Clinton on Hillarycare.

Herman Cain versus Bill Clinton on Hillarycare, 1994

Cain has been cited as one of the primary “saboteurs” of the 1993/1994 health care plan of President Bill Clinton and then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton:

The Clintons would later blame “Harry and Louise,” the fictional couple in the ads aired by the insurance industry, for undermining health reform. But the real saboteurs are named Herman and John. Herman Cain is the president of Godfather’s Pizza and president-elect of the National Restaurant Association. An articulate black entrepreneur, Cain transformed the debate when he challenged Clinton at a town meeting in Kansas City, Mo., last April. Cain asked the president what he was supposed to say to the workers he would have to lay off because of the cost of the “employer mandate.” Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. “Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate,” he told the president. “In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn’t work that way.”[7]

Joshua Green of The Atlantic has called Cain’s exchange with Clinton his “auspicious debut on the national political stage.”[8]

Mr. Cain announced the formation of his presidential exploratory committee last week on ‘Your World’ with Neil Cavuto and appeared on Hannity yesterday.

Glenn Beck, 10.18.2010; The Politics Of Debt

Socialism has a 100% failure rate; why is Europe turning away from socialism yet America is running toward it?  Glenn lists off very important dates throughout the year and what these dates to mean to us and to Congress; April 15th (budget deadline), November 2nd (midterm elections), December 31st (Bush tax cuts expire) putting the upcoming republican controlled congress into a ‘damned if you, damned if you don’t” situation.  Glenn also covers the raising of the ‘debt ceiling’ (Congress’ credit card) from $11.3 Trillion to $14.9 Trillion, and the decision the republican congress will have to make in March, 2011 when it comes to raising the debt ceiling yet again.

Glenn Beck, 10.7.2010: Fabian Society, Part 2

Glenn states that he has received emails telling how freaked out and terrified his viewers are by the information he imparted yesterday in the first part of the Fabian Society history lesson. Check out the rest of this post after the videos for a broad overview of how the web was spun, but buckle up first.  It it wasn’t in black and white, you would not believe it.

Are you ready? Many of my readers know most of this history already, but there may be some tidbits to add to your picture of the web, and your understanding of the intrinsic evil of the United Nations.  We have 19 years of UN ‘controls’ that need to be added to this timeline.

Glenn Beck, 10.6.2010; Fabian Society And Incremental Socialism

(Editor’s Note: Please take the time to check out Part 2 of Beck’s history lesson on the Fabian Society as I have added a global socialism timeline from excellent research.)


This particular episode is an excellent history lesson on the Fabian Society’s beginnings in 1884 in England, eugenist George Bernard Shaw, H.G Wells, Margaret Sanger, how the Society influenced the formation of the English Labour Party in 1900, and what the Society has been able to accomplish.

Part 2:

Part 3:

Boston Fabian Society member, Stuart Chase wrote ‘The Road We Are Traveling’ (1932) in which he details events that were occurring at the time that would replace the free enterprise system.

  • A strong centralized government.
  • A growing executive arm.
  • Control of credit, banking, and security exchanges by the government.
  • Underwriting of employment by the government either through armaments or through public works.
  • Underwriting of Social Security by the government; old-age pension, unemployment .
  • Underwriting of food, housing, and medical care.
  • Use of deficit spending.
  • Abandonment of gold.
  • Government control of foreign trade.
  • Control of natural resources.
  • Control of energy sources.
  • Control of transportation.
  • Control of agricultural production.
  • Enlistment of the youth corp.
  • Heavy taxation.
  • State control of communications.

Stuart Chase also wrote “A New Deal” and was part of FDR’s ‘kitchen cabinet’.

In 1937, the president told Chase’s father that his son was teaching the American people more about economics than any of the others combined. – Beck on Chase

The Fabian Society

The Fabian Society is a British socialist movement, whose purpose is to advance the principles of socialism via gradualist and reformist, rather than revolutionary, means. It is best known for its initial ground-breaking work beginning late in the 19th century and continuing up to World War I. The society laid many of the foundations of the Labour Party and subsequently affected the policies of states emerging from the decolonisation of the British Empire, especially India.

Today, the society is a vanguard think tank of the New Labour movement. It is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated to the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia (the Australian Fabian Society), Canada (the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and in the past the League for Social Reconstruction) and New Zealand.

Immediately upon its inception, the Fabian Society began attracting many prominent contemporary figures drawn to its socialist cause, including George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Annie Besant, Graham Wallas, Hubert Bland, Edith Nesbit, Sydney Olivier, Oliver Lodge, Leonard Woolf and Virginia Woolf, Ramsay MacDonald and Emmeline Pankhurst. Even Bertrand Russell briefly became a member, but resigned after he expressed his belief that the Society’s principle of entente (in this case, countries allying themselves against Germany) could lead to war.

At the core of the Fabian Society were Sidney and Beatrice Webb. Together, they wrote numerous studies of industrial Britain, including alternative co-operative economics that applied to ownership of capital as well as land.

The first Fabian Society pamphlets advocating tenets of social justice coincided with the zeitgeist of Liberal reforms during the early 1900s. The Fabian proposals however were considerably more progressive than those that were enacted in the Liberal reform legislation. The Fabians lobbied for the introduction of a minimum wage in 1906, for the creation of a universal health care system in 1911 and for the abolition of hereditary peerages in 1917[3].

Fabian socialists were in favour of an imperialist foreign policy as a conduit for internationalist reform and a welfare state modelled on the Bismarckian German model; they criticised Gladstonian liberalism both for its individualism at home and its internationalism abroad. They favoured a national minimum wage in order to stop British industries compensating for their inefficiency by lowering wages instead of investing in capital equipment; slum clearances and a health service in order for “the breeding of even a moderately Imperial race” which would be more productive and better militarily than the “stunted, anaemic, demoralised denizens…of our great cities”; and a national education system because “it is in the class-rooms that the future battles of the Empire for commercial prosperity are already being lost”[4].

The Fabians also favored the nationalisation of land, believing that rents collected by landowners were unearned, an idea which drew heavily from the work of American economist Henry George.

Many Fabians participated in the formation of the Labour Party in 1900 and the group’s constitution, written by Sidney Webb, borrowed heavily from the founding documents of the Fabian Society. At the Labour Party Foundation Conference in 1900, the Fabian Society claimed 861 members and sent one delegate.

Glenn Beck, 9.29.2010: Fact vs. Opinion (The Roots Of Obama’s Rage)

Glenn’s program is about fact vs. opinion and how the MSM has blended the two to steer the moos into the chute.  He also has a very special guest today, Dinesh D’Souza, author of “The Roots Of Obama’s Rage” which outlines the relationships, (or lack thereof), that have molded Bambi’s anti-colonialist attitudes including Frank Marshall Davis, Edward Said, Bill Ayers, and Jeremiah Wright.  Dinesh explains Obama’s ‘psychological and intellectual background’ and lays out the pathway of belief systems that have motivated Obama’s nonsensical decisions; i.e. “colonizers vs. the oppressed”.

Glenn Beck, 9.28.2010; One Nation Working Together (Communists, Marxists, Socialists)

I don’t believe that Obama is a socialist; I still think he is a little tinhorn dictator wanna-be that is being forced to actually work for the first time in his adult American life (and he’s pissed about it).  I am also not buying the whole ‘socialism’ message that is being spread across the airwaves; I still think it is fascism.  America has always been a universe apart from other countries because of our free market system and the economy that sprang up due in totality from it.  I think the progressive globalists are all about fascism (total and utter control of us through our economy), and the socialist/marxist/communist radical folks are their tools.  Remember, the average American IQ is 98…

As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax. In its day (the 1920s and 1930s), fascism was seen as the happy medium between boom-and-bust-prone liberal capitalism, with its alleged class conflict, wasteful competition, and profit-oriented egoism, and revolutionary Marxism, with its violent and socially divisive persecution of the bourgeoisie. Fascism substituted the particularity of nationalism and racialism—“blood and soil”—for the internationalism of both classical liberalism and Marxism. – Source: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics

Glenn devotes this particular show to the ‘One Nation Working Together’ march that is happening on October 2, 2010 as a counter to the 8.28.10 Restoring Honor Rally.  He lays out all the communists, marxists, socialists, and radicals that are endorsing this rally (and he is on fire).

Daniel Hannan, “The New Road To Serfdom”

I haven’t yet met a person who doesn’t love Daniel Hannan, his attitude toward our Constitution and form of government, and who doesn’t wish he was an American (or draftable) so that we could tap his enthusiasm and common sense in the District of Criminals.

Mr. Hannan has a new book out, The New Road To Serfdom, A Letter Of Warning To America in which he lays out the history of the socialist movement of America starting with the New Deal stretching to Obama’s fiscal folly of the $872 stimulus flush.

Truth vs. Media Bias; Arizona SB1070 Marches, 5.29.2010

Truth vs. Media Bias; Arizona SB1070 Marches, 5.29.2010

It wouldn't be a socialist protest without SEIU!

It is common knowledge that the MSM that went over to the dark side early in the 20th century are now openly pushing the progressive meme of collectivism through erasure of borders and bias against the American exceptionalism of the greatest generation. Perfect examples of their allegiance to TPTB can be found in the stories covering the immigration marches for and against SB1070 this past Saturday in Phoenix. Fortunately, the alternative media, in this case, American Power was on the scene to photograph the actual occurrences of extremism including socialists, anarchists, and illegals.

First, a few tidbits from the lapdogs of the progressive power-brokers.

NY Times:

Foes and Supporters of New Immigration Law Gather in Arizona

At the rally in favor of the law, which began with the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem, any mention of Mexico or supporters of the law brought lusty boos — a video clip of President Felipe Calderón of Mexico especially fired up the crowd, which was mostly white and middle-aged or older. Placards like “Illegals out of the U.S.A.” were typical, though speaker after speaker ridiculed the idea that the crowd was racist. (emphasis mine)
