TND Media Context Review: By Eric Dubin |
Intellectual Frog Legs is back, with another hard hitting video (see below). Just past the 4 minute mark we see discussion of the Bob Schieffer interview of Senator Ted Cruz, and what CBS left on the cutting room floor. Normally, the media loves to run controversial statements and subjects. But not this time. Senator Cruz points out where he believes film makers have been persecuted by the Obama administration. Why is it that CBS failed to air those comments? Even if the claimed justification concerns a possible concern that Cruz made unsubstantiated comments, that’s no excuse. Cruz would be on the hook and take the flack if his comments were considered unsubstantiated, or even simply hyperbole. No, CBS edited those comments out because they were protecting the Obama administration. IFL is correct.
As I’ve noted before, these productions might very well offend robotic, Obama supporters. Tough. I would post equally critical material about George W. Bush if we happened to suddenly walk into a time warp and find ourselves in 2007. I’ll post liberal satire as well.
The problem Americans faces has much less to do with right and left, than right and wrong. If you’re offended, wake up. The establishment has pulled the wool over your eyes.
I should also note that IFL and a huge percentage of the “right” have it wrong when they label Obama and his policies as Socialist or Marxist. Truth be told, we have a hybrid. The Bolsheviks shut down the Russian stock exchange in 1917 and it was only reopened in 1990, after Russia started to open up to the West and the Iron Curtain fell. The ownership of the factors of production are mostly held by corporations, not government. The Federal Reserve cranks out debt based fiat that straps US tax payers into quasi-debt servitude (diminishment of our standard of living over time), and private sector banking institutions get to have a considerable say where that fire hose of liquidity sprays.
While we have a President that panders to unions and attempts to co-opt the masses with token liberal and even true socialist policies (e.g., raising the minimum wage and buyout of auto industry union workers respectively), that’s quite trivial in the grand scheme of things compared to the reality of the rigged Federal Reserve leech on the neck of the American middle class since 1913. Furthermore, since 2008, the Federal Reserve forked over at least $9 trillion dollars to the banking sector, domestic and international. $9 TRILLION DOLLARS; over half of the nation’s annual gross domestic product stuffed was into private capital’s hands. That’s not socialism. That’s corporatism. That’s fascism. And yes, I know all about the fact that Karl Marx called for 10 essential planks of Communism, including a central banking system. But there’s one problem with people that read that plank and don’t think any deeper. In the United States, the most important part of the Federal Reserve is not part of the government. It’s a private corporation with stock holders, and when the New York Fed sprays $9 trillion dollars into the zombie banks who’s stock is largely owned by banking oligarchs, that’s crony capitalist fascism, period.
Obamacare can be seen in a similar frame. While it most certainly has wealth distribution aspects so as to try to buy-off liberal and other voters simply not paying attention, the truth is those subsidies will come back to bite in the form of higher taxes in the future. Where the heck do you think the government gets the money to pay subsidies? Fiat money debt generated and slapped on future tax payers, that’s where — and yes, even poor people are going to be hit by that debt burden too, especially when our dear leaders dump a national sales tax on our heads, along with carbon taxes predicated on so-called “global warming.”
Again, we have a hybrid system. Obama most certainly fashions himself as a hard-core liberal. But he’s not a pure socialist. His puppet strings are controlled by corporatist interests, and the appeasement of the left and those among the now 50% of the country that make up the ranks of our “welfare nation” is exemplary of nothing more than a political strategy to buy off the masses with table scraps. We have government that throws out a few scraps of quasi-socialist wealth redistribution to appease those within our “welfare nation,” taking some of that money back via taxes and other tricks, and ultimately keeping the conveyor belt of corporatism up and running to enrich private sector special interests that have captured government. Again, that’s crony capitalist corporatism, and speaks to the fact that we have a hybrid system, with the majority of the political and wealth generation flowing towards private, corporatist interests. Those on the right that fail to understand this admittedly nuanced reality are being duped just as much as leftist ignoramuses that think Obamacare is a good idea.
