We Were Warned 2,000 Years Ago

Marcus Tullius Cicero:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

The personification of American decline is famous for appealing to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men — or at least all moonbats.

Obama-demagogue

Compliments of Beef.

    Being a traitor, much like being beautiful, is in the eye of the beholder.

    As for labeling people “traitors”, you should be careful when castigating people you disagree with politically in such stark terms. Remember: Obama and those who voted for him (who by your own admission now outnumber you) could label you as “traitors”.

    If they did, then what?

    Oh, and what have “we” done that’s, oh, violated the Constitution, you know, armed/supported our enemies and criminals, failed to secure our borders, undercut/insulted our allies, watched our embassy personnel die live on TV while refusing them aid, set up economic conditions that undermine most of the population, expanded the abuse handed out by the DHS/TSA, fostered division among our population? Yeah, some of our guys aren’t perfect, but they seem a far sight better than what we’ve got.

    Didn’t your idiocy just take a major smackdown regarding Michigan unions on a prior post?

    You have quickly proven yourself to be uninformed spewer of false time-worn liberal talking points.

    Explain Fast and Furious, explain Benghazi, explain Obama’s relationship with Van Jones, Malik Zulu Shabazz, or Valerie Jarrett’s latest venture to have closed talks with the Iranians.

    Do you know any of these names? Are you posting because you FEEL Obama is doing the right thing, or posting because you have no clue he is not?

    No I didn’t take a smackdown. I’m still correct. And you’ve proven yourself to be a bitter gun clinger. Even more bitter in light of last Tuesday’s news.

    Fast and Furious? I’m still waiting to get the truth about Iran Contra. And you want to talk about “treason”?

    Benghazi? It was a terrorist attack just like Obama said it was.

    Van Jones? What is the absolute obsession you people have with Van Jones? He’s no longer in the Obama Administration. If I was Van Jones, I would wear your criticism like a badge of honor.

    Valerie Jarrett latest venture to have closed talks with Iranians? Good for her. She should be.

    This appealer to human baselessness we’ve seen before, by various names, he has been around for a long, long year and stole many a man’s soul and faith:

    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I’m a man of wealth and taste
    I’ve been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a man’s soul and faith
    I was ’round when Jesus Christ
    Had his moment of doubt and pain
    Made damn sure that Pilate
    Washed his hands and sealed his fate
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name
    I stuck around St. Petersburg
    When I saw it was a time for a change
    Killed the Czar and his ministers
    Anastasia screamed in vain …

    Tell me baby, what’s my name
    Tell me honey, a can ya guess my name
    Tell me baby, what’s my name
    I tell you one time, you’re to blame

    Now, Jesus showed us the way to speak the words to deal with him, if ever the majority of Americans will ever be so bold again:

    Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you (in today’s terms, Obama phones, EBT cards, welfare, redistributed wealth, etc.),” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

    Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

    Matthew 4:1-11

    So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

    Matthew 24:42-44

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII 1891
    On capital and labor

    Mind you this was written during the industrial revolution, and before the fruits of capitalism were to be realized by the common worker

    And in addition to injustice, it is only too evident what an upset and disturbance there would be in all classes, and to how intolerable and hateful a slavery citizens would be subjected. The door would be thrown open to envy, to mutual invective, and to discord; the sources of wealth themselves would run dry, for no one would have any interest in exerting his talents or his industry; and that ideal equality about which they entertain pleasant dreams would be in reality the leveling down of all to a like condition of misery and degradation.

    Hence, it is clear that the main tenet of socialism, community of goods, must be utterly rejected, since it only injures those whom it would seem meant to benefit, is directly contrary to the natural rights of mankind, and would introduce confusion and disorder into the commonweal. The first and most fundamental principle, therefore, if one would undertake to alleviate the condition of the masses, must be the inviolability of private property. This being established, we proceed to show where the remedy sought for must be found.

    Ghost —

    I bet you’ve read some Chesterton and Belloc and know much of what Catholic economic teaching is attempting to recover. Rerum Novarum and subsequent encyclicals all condemn socialism at its core. However, the only other perceived answer to socialism doesn’t fare well under Catholic scrutiny either. Both defy human nature and the natural order at some level. But there is a better, third solution. Leo XII is showing us the way.

    “What would you consider a political entity that turns half the population on the other half by way of race and class expressly for the sake of power?”

    No. Obama is not turning anyone on anyone. You are free to join him. What you said is a delusion of yours. Unless of course you think a more multi cultural, multi racial, economically equitable society is a threat against the white-skinned, political and monied homogeny of yesteryear.

  • Jimbo

    “You are free to join him.”

    Oh my God! Did the communist devil really say that?
    It’s easy to join Satan’s side, huh, troll?

    I’m through reading the fool’s posts. The fool is a sick, sick person. And yes, troll – you are my mortal enemy. You crap-eaters will die.

  • bluffcreek1967

    What Massachusetts Progressive doesn’t seem to understand is that, admittedly, there’s a difference between genuinely sincere, but misguided liberals and liberals who knowingly or secretly intend to undermine our American Constitution. Barack Obama is truly an ‘enemy within.’ His original intentions for our country have been concealed, hidden and denied because he knows that if he was publicly open about it, the vast majority of Americans would have been alarmed. He has not been honest with us, and he is not an honorable man.

  • Jimbo

    Someone needs to tell the fool that Jesus Christ is absolutely free – no strings attached. “Joining” Bathhouse Barry has LOTS of “strings” – like the loss of freedom, the loss of liberty, and the loss of your soul.

    The communist’s president and it’s supporters can kiss my ass. Come and get me, fools.

  • Massachusetts Progressive

    @Jimbo

    Ah yes communism. You see communism everywhere. You don’t even know what communism is. You only know what what your right-wing echo chamber tells you. That’s ok, I forgive you.

    You’re probably the type of guy that sees an effigy of the Virgin Mary on a piece of toast, or on a piece of ice in a grocery store freezer… or on a turd.

    “If I was Van Jones, I would wear your criticism like a badge of honor.”

    You don’t know his history, you haven’t followed his racial cleansing agenda, and you cannot possibly believe in the goodness of man – liberal or conservative – if you protect this vermin with your words.

    Is there no human piece of trash, or vile lie, or despicable attack on basic human values that you progressives won’t embrace?

    If it was a serial baby-rapist with HIV who had an Obama bumper-sticker on his car, you’d find a way to justify the baby being guilty.

    Is there nothing of the past or of our heritage you people don’t want to vomit on?

    Your statement: “Fast and Furious? I’m still waiting to get the truth about Iran Contra. And you want to talk about “treason”?

    Benghazi? It was a terrorist attack just like Obama said it was.”

    First, classic moral-relativism and then deflect to Bush. Then ignore/confirm an Obama lie without so as a whimper or the most basic simple inquiry, when American lives were lost and Americans want an f*n explanation.

    Your haughty nasty arrogance makes me think you are our famous disgusting troll from up North.

    Especially after your tacky interaction with your nemesis Jimbo.

    Woman:You know Johnson & Johnson?

    Man: Uh..yeah. Why?

    Woman: They’re funding an organization called ALEC…the American Legislative Exchange Council? It’s attacking the rights of black folks, latinos, and workers in states across the country. It spread the shoot first law that protected Trayvon Martin’s killer and laws that suppress the black vote.

    Man: And Johnson & Johnson gives money to that?

    Woman: Yeah.

    Man: Wow.

    Woman: Yeah.

    Announcer: Tell Johnson & Johnson to stop funding ALEC.

    But then again, you have already provided the solution
    Johnson and Johnson need simply to send cash to Jones instead.
    No more accusations of racism

  • Jimbo

    In past posts, I’ve advocated Free States vs. Communist States. I think I rushed to what I admit is a fierce case of ‘Texas patriotism’.

    When I look at the electoral map by county – red vs. blue – it would be hard for me to abandon a State like Pennsylvania that has a couple of little blue shapes in a sea of red.

    A boycott of communist counties could be better served and easier to organize. Free Counties could (voluntarily) put up signs at the county lines; ‘CAUTION: YOU ARE LEAVING A FREE COUNTY AND ENTERING A COMMUNIST COUNTY. YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS END WHEN YOU CROSS THE COUNTY LINE’.

    Of course – there would still be entire states that are boycotted – like Massachusetts.

    I’ve never had a problem with Iran Contra, just a tradeoff we had to do when we were weak after Carter. There wasn’t a problem until the Boland amendment, but that was kind of retroactive. Schmucks.

  • Marian

    OK, odumbo won the stupid people contest, so I guess to be cool I’ll turn into a liberal. Here’s what I’ll do:
    1. No longer consider myself racist–I only hate white people who disagree with me
    2. Stop working and paying taxes
    3. Expect white people who work, pay taxes, and have saved their entire lives to retire to give their money to me just because odumbo says so
    4. Don’t expect beige or brown people who make millions of dollars to pay any extra taxes because they are special, i.e. not white
    5. Give up all freedom, private property and personal liberty because odumbo is brown, and well, I owe it to him because of slavery
    6. Hate voluntary military personnel who fight for America
    7. Love barbaric, violent, ignorant islamic terrorists because maybe they’ll leave me alone if I do what they want me to
    8. Encourage my daughter to have children out of wedlock to get free money from odumbo
    9. Start committing crimes to show how unfair the system is
    10. Last, but not least, hate America, the country that has helped more people around the globe than all other countries combined, because, uh, I don’t know

  • Jimbo

    Good list Marian!

    Hmmmm. This all is kind of sounding like another guy everyone thought was so super great that they followed him blindly without question. Who tried to conceal his Jewish roots by entering Austria and chasing down his Birth Certificate. Who held political rallies in Berlin, Germany and stadiums. Who gets his real family identity and his Jewish name Schickelgruber buried in the media. Can you say Adolf Hilter?

    As y’all can see, living in Massachusetts is akin to living near a toxic waste dump. All of the wanna-be progs start here, indoctrinated by the useless places of “higher education.”

    I’ve lived in MA since my birth, but I will not be buried here. This state is pure shyt, thanks to the DemoCrap unions. How any person with one ounce of grey matter could vote for the fake Indian, a Hah-vahd professor with minimal credentials, leaves me gasping for air.

    The Republicans are far more brilliant than we give them credit for. They’ve convinced half of the population to support policies that benefit only 2% of them, if that.

    Incredible how everybody who talks an old widow into putting useless aluminum siding on her house or who is hustling diet supplements to an ever-decreasing circle of friends thinks he is an entrepreneur.

  • TruthBeTold

    @We Are Watching: Oh I know. Their head planers are absolute geniuses. They have created an entire alternative reality that is happily embraced by millions, have everything in a conservative edition, from newspapers to television networks to fact checkers and pollsters. They have created their own little world and their own narrative of history. Ironically all this is built on ways of manipulating the masses with rethoric, suggestions and ad-nauseam talking points that become real to people as more as they hear them – also known as science. Than, of course, the use of fear is one the most brilliant manners I have ever seen – a constant state of paranoia is created in every one their followers, so that all people that disagree with them are automatically put into the “enemy”-category and therefor can’t be trusted, so that all information that is given, is automatically nullified.
    It’s a brilliant ideology – and in and of itself holds totalitarian concepts of propaganda and imagery of the inhuman enemy very close to it’s core.
    The problem that comes out of it, is that the people who actually believe all this, lose all sense of reasoning and only traumatic experiences like going to war can ever change their mind.
    It’s beautifully constructed and deadly effective.
