Time for McCain to tell it like it is: Obama is a socialist

Excerpts from Star Parker’s Townhall.com column

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

McCain must paint with clarity the starkly different worlds that Americans will be buying into when they step into voting booths in November.

Barack Obama is a socialist. McCain must say it. It’s not slinging mud but stating fact.

Perhaps a complicating factor in explaining freedom to Americans today is that when “classic” Republicanism was selling, we all still remembered the Soviet Union and communist China. The difference between the United States and the rest of the world then was clearer than today.

When someone said “socialist” or “communist,” we could look abroad and know exactly what this meant.

There is nowhere where Senator Obama sees Americans suffering from excessive government. The opposite. He sees all our suffering from not enough.

The collapse of communism and socialism abroad was not accidental. Central planning is both dysfunctional and immoral.

Incredibly, Obama thinks that a huge and complex market like health care, where a few hundred million Americans spend almost two and half trillion dollars a year, can be improved with more government controls and spending.

And he thinks that parents, in a country that is supposed to be free, should not be given control over where they send their child to school and the type of education their child gets.

To turn things around, McCain must quickly reestablish the Republican brand of freedom and contrast this with Obama’s clear socialism.

Our election process in jeopardy: Democrat Official Joins Pro-Obama Voter Fraud

By Sher Zieve (10/10/08)

A federal judge has found Democrat and pro-Obama Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner guilty of violating Ohio election laws. ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) voter fraud is running rampant in Ohio and Brunner has tried to stop any and all investigations into said fraud. Note: ACORN has previously confessed to Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Board of Elections that they know they are committing fraud and blamed the election board for not catching them!

Even as ACORN is, currently, being actively investigated in between 10-15 states (the numbers seem to increase every day), Brunner has been instrumental in attempting to block any checking of ACORN’s bogus registrations. And there are increasingly persistent rumors that Democrat leadership is affecting anything and everything—including rigging the presidential elections nationwide—in order that their candidate Barack Obama is elected. This latest Brunner corruption would tend to prove the rumors correct or, at the very least, lend a great deal of additional credibility to them. Congressional Democrats have even submitted (and continue to submit) multiple bills—at least one of which was passed—to fund ACORN with millions of dollars. Note: This is the same ACORN that strong arms banks to provide mortgages to low-income borrowers. How do they mold their strong arm tactics? They protest outside of the targeted banks, in their lobbies, protest at the homes of bank officials and have even broken into their private offices. Remember that Obama was ACORN’s original “trainer.”

Brunner joins the ever-growing list of Democrat officials who are ignoring the law and attempting to intimidate voters into voting for Obama. That list includes—but is not limited to—Democrat St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch and Democrat St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce who were caught on video saying they were part of the Obama “Truth Squad” and would prosecute anyone telling what they and the Obama campaign considered to be lies about their candidate. Pennsylvania Democrats Governor Ed Rendell, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and former Democrat Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack have joined in forming additional ‘chapters’ of the Obama Truth Squads.

Dire Note: Said “truth squads” are eerily reminiscent of at least two other tyrannical leaders who plied their trades in both Germany and Russia.

Obama is also disallowing any anti-Obama signs at university rallies—most recently at Virginia’s University of Mary Washington. In other words, no more free speech with an Obama administration. This goes way beyond Socialism (did you know Obama was a member of the Democrat Socialist New Party in the 1990s?) and takes us directly into a Communistic-Stalinist regime. So, Obama may just win the election for POTUS via concentrated Democrat aided and abetted voter fraud –they have already been instrumental in destroying the US if not the world economy.

All that is required to find out about this man Obama is some searching. It simply requires a little work. Some of his corruptions have been scrubbed from the internet but, some of the previously “missing articles”—see below—have been recovered.

Barack Obama is the most dangerous and frightening presidential candidate in US history. If he commandeers the presidency of the United States, we will have no way to vote him out at the next election. His voter fraud group ACORN will have additional millions of dollars allocated to it and there will never again be honest elections in the USA and no doubt his “Truth Squads” will have become an Obama law enforcement agency. He has already shown us with his current truth squads and University appearances that any and all opposition-to-him (IE free speech) will be banned.

All anyone has to do is open their eyes and ears to what this man says and—then—what he actually does. We are in the most hazardous time in our country’s history. If we do not choose to fight the looming betrayal and oppression we will die. It is what it is.

Rudy does not represent MY values

This is the topic that may open a whole new can of worms for the former Mayor, and likely ruin his Presidential hopes:

Giuliani’s Mistress Used N.Y. Police as Taxi Service

Although she’s now Mrs. Giuliani III, back in early 2000, while Married to Donna Hanover, Mr. Mayor was having his trysts with Judith Nathan. Personally, I do have a problem with this: a “conservative Republican” cannot run a campaign hoping to capture Values voters – regardless that there are some unfortunate Evangelical leaders backing the ex-Mayor. But there’s another twist behind the tryst: The NYPD billed an obscure City agency newly created back then by the Mayor. The question is – Why?

We all know that Mayors require a round-the-clock security detail, specifically the NYPD (for NYC Mayors). But while all NYPD city expenses are submitted to “the city”, why go out of your way to “hide” these expenses from oversight?

Former officials told ABCNews.com the extra costs involved overtime and per diem costs for officers traveling with Giuliani to secret weekend rendezvous with Nathan in the fashionable Hamptons resort area on Long Island.

When the New York City comptroller began to question the accounting, Mayor Giuliani’s office declined to provide details to city security, officials told ABCNews.com today.

“The Comptroller’s Office made repeated requests for the information in 2001 and 2002 but was informed that due to security concerns the information could not be provided,” a spokesperson for the comptroller’s office said.

Appearing in public for the first time today, Giuliani told ABC News the accusations he assigned a police security detail to his mistress and helped to hide the expenses in the mammoth New York City budget “a pre-debate hit job.”

“I’m sorry, but I still don’t understand why they filed these expenses the way they did,” he said. OK – that’s what he says, but well before it was publicly known he was seeing her, then-married New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani provided a police driver and city car for his mistress Judith Nathan, former senior city officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com.

“She used the PD as her personal taxi service,” said one former city official who worked for Giuliani.

New York papers reported in 2000 that the city had provided a security detail for Nathan, who became Giuliani’s third wife after his divorce from Donna Hanover, who also had her own police security detail at the same time.

Former officials close to Giuliani say he had “zero” to do with how the police security expenses for Judith Nathan, who he since married, were accounted in the city budget.

The Giuliani campaign said it would also provide a former deputy mayor, Randy Mastro, to respond to the allegations later today.

here’s the story that’s generating buzz throughout Washington political circles.

So why do I think this may open the proverbial can of worms? Well, it comes down to his judgement.

Lets look at Kerik:

Rudy Giuliani appointed Kerik police commissioner in 2000 when he was New York mayor, and he endorsed Kerik’s 2004 nomination to head the Department of Homeland Security. Days after President Bush introduced Kerik as his nominee, however, Kerik announced he was withdrawing his name because of tax issues involving his former nanny.

Giuliani has said he should have done a better job of vetting Kerik. (Give me a break: Giuliani and Kerik have been friends for a looong time.)

Seattle Times, Dec. 14, 2004:

NEW YORK — Bernard Kerik’s nanny problem might have proved the least of his troubles if the Bush administration had pressed ahead with its nomination of him to become secretary of homeland security.

The past few days have seen news reports about a rash of possible personal and professional improprieties on the part of the former New York City police commissioner, including big stock-option windfalls, connections with people suspected of doing business with the mob and, yesterday, allegations he had simultaneous extramarital affairs with two women.

The newspaper Newsday reported that investigators conducting a background check of Kerik last week uncovered that the former nominee had been married to a woman he has apparently kept a secret for the past 20 years. Friends of his said they were not aware of the woman, and Kerik did not acknowledge the marriage in his best-selling autobiography, “The Lost Son: A Life in Pursuit of Justice.”

Instead, he wrote about only two marriages, one to a New Jersey woman named Jacqueline, whom he married in 1983 when he was 28, and one to his current wife, Hala. But Kerik, who withdrew his name from consideration for the nation’s top security post on Friday, was also married to the former Linda Hales in North Carolina.

(Remember – Giuliani pushed the White House to nominate Kerik)

Citing unidentified sources, the New York Daily News said Kerik had overlapping affairs with Judith Regan, the publisher of his recent memoir, and a city corrections officer. He used the same New York City apartment for liaisons with the women during his 18-month tenure as head of the nation’s largest police department, ending in 2001, the paper said.

Yesterday, Kerik said he wanted to apologize “to anybody who’s been brought into this unnecessarily,” including Regan and former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a close friend and business associate who had promoted the former street cop’s Cabinet candidacy.

Other recent reports claim that around the time of the alleged affairs, Kerik accepted unreported gifts of thousands of dollars in cash and other items from associates at a New Jersey construction company while serving under Giuliani, first as corrections chief, then as police commissioner.

Lastly, I found an interesting piece of information too: In today’s World Net Daily commentary by Jane Chastain titled President Giuliani: My worst nightmare: she pens: “Giuliani is a liberal with a few conservative tendencies – very few. In 1988, Rudy’s mother, Helen, said, “He only became a Republican after he began to get all these jobs from them. He’s definitely not a conservative Republican.” This from his Mom!
