Origin of the grand demise?
By A.J. Castellitto

"There's going to be a revolution"

Former Marxist, Dr. John Drew, should have been a key figure of interest in the vetting of the president. Drew, a kindred ideological acquaintance and student at Occidental College, has carried with him some lucid insights. He has much more to offer than what will never be revealed by sealed records.

But so far.... Nothing!

"My observations on young Obama's commitment to Marxist socialist thought has been featured in Michael Savage's Trickle Up Poverty, Stanley Kurtz's Radical-In-Chief and Paul Kengor's Dupes. I've had absolutely no contact, however, with the mainstream media. It seems to me that if Rand Paul's college years are fair game, then so should Obama's time at Occidental College." – John C. Drew, PhD, 10/25/10

What about the much maligned Stanley Kurtz? Just some right-wing axe-grinder?

"In late October 2008, when I wrote ...that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a "crackpot smear." Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that "Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party." I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press."

What we have is a badly broken political system highly susceptible to tampering, blackmail, extortion, intimidation, nepotism and widespread infiltration to powers and principalities that should have no place in our electoral affairs (or in a word: TREASON). Pragmatic solutions and lawful responses are now misrepresented and confounded by a politically controlled media machine more concerned with advancing a radical vision than honestly reporting the news.

No more are the days of goodwill government being a matter of differences in approach. We are now living in a day of 'who will do less damage' both in the now and for our future.

The media is owned by the government and the government helps fund the media. They are incestuously bound. Radical activists and their loyal blood relations jump from news network to government job and back again. While the taxpayers are ignored, dismissed, or simply straight-up lied to.

Welcome to the 21st Century version of American Democracy! Where we are wholly complicit in our own demise.

No Vetting? No Problem! Just follow us over the cliff. You won't even know what hit you.

It would be too much to expect the already rich and powerful to take on the burden of leading the nation (merely for the good of the people). Folks willing to take on such a task (or being sponsored to do so) have big plans and grand schemes in which they themselves and/or their handlers will be the true and primary beneficiaries. Certainly, it's been the norm more often than not for a while. But it's become a truly terrifying proposition in our day.... Mainly for 'We the People'....

A sobering culmination of the self-defeating nature and peril of our humanity (exasperated by a technologically progressive age of infinite destructive capacity).
