    • Wa Post Report: Hagel Warned ObamaAbout ‘New World Order’Steve WatsonInfowars.comJan 29, 2013Secretary Of Defense nominee pointed to rogue elements within the militaryThe Washington Post today reports an interesting exchange that is said to have happened between thePresident in his first term, and Chuck Hagel, the nominee to be the next Secretary of Defense.Bob Woodward writes in the Post that on a visit to the White House in 2009, Hagel warned Obama thathe should look out for rogue elements within the Pentagon that were leading a ‘new world order’: According to an account that Hagel later gave, and is reported here for the first time, he told Obama: “We are at a time where there is a new world order. “We don’t control it. You must question everything, every assumption, everything they” — the military and diplomats — “tell you. Any assumption 10 years old is out of date. You need to question our role. You need to question the military. You need to question what are we using the military for.”The Post states that Hagel warned Obama about becoming “bogged down” in the ongoing war inAfghanistan, saying it would define Obama’s first term. Hagel reportedly later privately questioned thewisdom of sending additional troops to join the conflict.At the time, Obama had announced a proposed deployment of over 50,000 troops to Afghanistan, basedon recommendations from the Pentagon.In response, Hagel is said to have noted “The president has not had commander-in-chief control of thePentagon since Bush senior was president.”
    • “If Hagel is confirmed, as appears likely, he and the president will have a large task in navigating this new world order.” The Post report concludes. The assertion here seems less centered around the concept of ‘new world order’ that Infowars readers will be familiar with, and more towards the simple notion that the military industrial complex is driving perpetual war for its own ends; not really a major revelation in itself, and more an obvious statement. Nevertheless, Hagel’s comments make for interesting reading. However, there is no reason tobelieve that Obama, as president, would not already be aware of any form of ‘new world order’, be itrogue elements within the Pentagon or a vast elite shadow government structure, if Chuck Hagel, as aSenator, was aware of it.This all begs the question, if Hagel knows the position of Secretary of Defense carries little meaningfulinfluence over the military top brass, then will he attempt to do anything about it, or will he simply playalong with the role?22 Signs That Barack Obama Is TransformingAmerica Into A Larger Version Of North KoreaMichael SnyderThe American DreamJan 29, 2013If there is one country in the world that youwould not want to live in, it would be NorthKorea. Unfortunately, the United States ofAmerica is becoming more like North Koreawith each passing day. North Korea is atotalitarian police state hellhole where the staterules supreme, the “leader” is lavishlyworshipped, no dissent is tolerated, and thegovernment micromanages everything.America is supposed to be the opposite of that,but now Barack Obama is implementing hisversion of “change” and he has promised toengage in the “remaking” of this nation and totransform it “brick by brick“. A tremendous “cult of personality” has been built up around Obama, andunder his leadership the U.S. government has become larger and more repressive than ever before. But
    • do we really want to “change” America so that it more closely resembles totalitarian regimes such as North Korea, communist China, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany? After all, all of those regimes have a nightmarish history of brutality and death. Even today, there are starving North Koreans that are eating their own children. Is that really where we want to end up as a nation? The truth is that we desperately need to take America in the opposite direction of where Barack Obama is trying to take us. We need a much smaller federal government, a much greater emphasis on freedom and liberty, a return to true free market capitalism, and politicians that are willing to take a low profile and that are actually there to serve the American people.But what we need and what we are getting are two very different things.The following are 22 signs that Barack Obama is transforming America into a larger version of NorthKorea…#1 Obama has appointed numerous socialists and communists to important positions in hisadministration. The following are just a few examples that were highlighted in a recent article by JohnPerazzo… • Obama named Van Jones, a longtime revolutionary communist who famously declared that “we [are] gonna change the whole [economic] system,” as his “green jobs czar” in 2009; • he appointed Carol Browner, a former “commissioner” of the Socialist International, as his “environment czar”; • he appointed John Holdren, who not only views capitalism as a system that is inherently destructive of the environment, but strongly favors the redistribution of wealth, both within the U.S. and across international borders, as his “science czar”; • he named Hilda Solis, a former officer of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the socialist wing of the House of Representatives), as his labor secretary; • and he chose Anita Dunn, a woman who has cited Mao Zedong as one of her “favorite political philosophers,” to serve as White House communications director.#2 As Paul Roderick Gregory demonstrated in an outstanding article for Forbes, Barack Obama’seconomic agenda matches the November 2011 Declaration of Principles of the Party of EuropeanSocialists almost point for point.#3 If a totalitarian regime is going to be successful, it needs a massive government bureaucracy to runthings. Today, the number of employees of the federal government is roughly equivalent to the entirepopulation of the United States in 1776.#4 In North Korea, dissent is brutally repressed. In the United States, we have continued to moverapidly in that direction under Barack Obama. In a recent article entitled “Obama’s War OnWhistleblowers“, author Stephen Lendman wrote the following…
    • He said one thing. He did another. As president, he usurped diktat powers. He wages war on truth. He targets whistleblowers. He prioritizes surveillance powers. They include warrantless wiretapping, accessing personal records, monitoring financial transactions, and tracking emails, Internet and cell phone use. It’s done lawlessly to gather secret evidence for prosecutions. In his book “Necessary Secrets,” Gabriel Schoenfeld said he “presided over the most draconian crackdown on leaks in our history – even more so than Nixon.” Rhetorically he supports civil liberties and transparency. “Such acts of courage and patriotism….should be encouraged rather than stifled,” he said. At the same time, he betrayed the public trust. He targets free expression and dissent. He pursues police state prosecutions and intimidation. He claims Justice Department immunity from illegal spying suits. He exceeds the worst of all previous administrations. His national security state targets activists, political dissidents, anti-war protestors, Muslims, Latino immigrants, lawyers who defend them, whistleblowers, and investigative journalists. Law Professor Jack Balkin expressed alarm, saying: “We are witnessing the bipartisan normalization and legitimation of a national surveillance state.” Obama exceeded the worst of George Bush.#5 Under Obama, the United States has been developing “Big Brother” surveillance technologies thatdictators of the past never even dreamed were possible. For example, a very highly sophisticatedsurveillance grid known as “Trapwire” is being installed in major cities and at “high value targets” allover the country. Sadly, the mainstream media has not covered this at all, and most Americans still donot even realize that it exists.#6 Under Obama, unmanned aerial vehicles are not just used for war anymore. Police departments arenow starting to deploy surveillance drones in the skies over their cities all over the nation. In fact, thisis something that the federal government is greatly encouraging.#7 It was the Obama administration that came up with the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.Now the federal government has even created an iPhone app that is designed to encourage all of us to
    • take photos of “suspicious activity” and report our neighbors to the authorities.#8 It was the Obama administration that first instituted “enhanced pat-downs” by TSA thugs at ourairports. As a result, countless numbers of men, women and children have had horrific experiences thatthey will remember for the rest of their lives. You can read some of their horror stories right here.#9 The U.S. military now has the authority to arrest American citizens and hold them indefinitelywithout trial. The Obama administration has no problem with this horrible abuse of power.#10 A key Obama ally in the U.S House of Representatives, Congressman José Serrano of NewYork, has introduced a measure that would repeal the 22nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution so thatBarack Obama can continue to run for additional terms as president after his second term ends.#11 The “cult of personality” that has built up around Barack Obama is getting quite ridiculous.Shortly after he won the recent election, actor Jamie Foxx referred to Barack Obama as “our Lord andSavior Barack Obama” during a television broadcast of the 2012 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas,Nevada. Such “leader worship” would fit in very well in North Korea.#12 Since Obama won in November, there has been an increasing number of incidences in whichObama has been referred to in religious terms. For example, a recent Newsweek article referred toBarack Obama’s second term as “The Second Coming“.#13 A painting by artist Michael D’Antuono that is now on display at Boston’s Bunker Hill CommunityCollege Art Gallery recently made headlines all over the United States. In the painting, Barack Obamais wearing a crown of thorns on his head and his arms are stretched out as if he was being crucified. Inthe background of the painting is the presidential seal…#14 Relentless praise from the mainstream media played a huge role in each of Obama’s electionvictories. The mainstream media is supposed to be objective, but there have been reports of membersof the media “swooning” in his presence, and most mainstream news broadcasts leave little doubt thatObama is the “good guy” and anyone opposed to him is the “bad guy”.#15 The Obama organization has tirelessly gathered data on potential voters. At this point, the amountof information that the Obama campaign has compiled on the American people is absolutelyfrightening… If you voted this election season, President Obama almost certainly has a file on you. His vast campaign database includes information on voters’ magazine subscriptions, car registrations, housing values and hunting licenses, along with scores estimating how likely they were to cast ballots for his reelection.#16 The Communist Party USA is cheering on Barack Obama’s efforts to disarm the American people.According to one of their official publications, “the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gunviolence is a fundamental democratic right — one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rightsallegedly contained in the Second Amendment.”#17 Under Obama, the federal government is intruding in our personal lives like never before. Thefollowing example is from a recent RT article… Smokers, beware: tobacco penalties under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act could subject millions of smokers to fees costing thousands of dollars, making healthcare more expensive for them than Americans with other unhealthy habits.
    • The Affordable Care Act, which critics have also called “Obamacare”, could subject smokers to premiums that are 50 percent higher than usual, starting next Jan 1. Health insurers will be allowed to charge smokers penalties that overweight Americans or those with other health conditions would not be subjected to. A 60-year-old smoker could pay penalties as high as $5,100, in addition to the premiums, the Associated Press reports. A 55-year-old smoker’s penalty could reach $4,250. The older a smoker is, the higher the penalty will be.#18 Just as in North Korea, our lives are being increasingly micromanaged by a government that ispacked with control freaks. At this point they even are telling us what kind of light bulbs we areallowed to buy.#19 Federal agencies have become increasingly brutal under Obama. For example, if you milk yourcow and sell some of that milk to your neighbor next door, you could end up having your homeraided by federal agents.#20 Obama has gone to great lengths to demonize his opposition. Since he has been president,numerous government papers, studies and reports have been released that identify groups of people thatare opposed to Obama as “potential terrorists”. Some of the groups targeted as “potential terrorists”include those that “revere individual liberty”, “conspiracy theorists”, “returning veterans”, anti-abortionactivists, those that visit “extremist websites”, those that are “fiercely nationalistic”, those that “believein the right to bear arms”, anyone that is opposed to illegal immigration, anyone that is anti-UN, andanyone that is “suspicious of centralized federal authority”. For much more on this, please seethisarticle.#21 Obama’s abuse of power is not just limited to the United States. The truth is that he hasincreasingly been acting like some type of imperial ruler that gets to tell everyone else in the worldwhat they are supposed to do. For example, according to a recent WND article Obama has actuallypromised to give eastern Jerusalem to the Palestinians even though Israel has already said that they willagree to no such thing… Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told WND. The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders – meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem.#22 Many Obama supporters are becoming enamored with the idea that we should either start ignoringthe Constitution or that we should get rid of it entirely. For example, Georgetown law professor LouisMichael Seidmanrecently appeared on CBS and said the following to the American people… “I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution. I know, it sounds radical, but it’s really not.”Hey, if we got rid of the pesky Constitution, we could have a dictatorship just like North Korea does!Barack Obama could be our king, our lord and our savior for decades!Of course I am being sarcastic, but this is the kind of dangerous thinking that leads to tyranny.
    • Let us learn the hard lessons that history has tried to teach us. We don’t want to go down the same paththat North Korea, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and communist China have traveled.There is an absolutely amazing National Geographic documentary that shows what life is like insideNorth Korea. You can view it on YouTube right here. We don’t want our children and ourgrandchildren to someday live in a nation like that.Freedom and liberty are precious things. They are very hard to win, and they are very easy to lose.Let us not be the generation that loses everything that our forefathers worked so hard to build. Obama vs. the ConstitutionLaurence Vancelewrockwell.comJanuary 29, 2013I just received an e-mail “Conservative Action Alert”stating: “Obama’s anti-gun executive orders are inopposition to his Presidential Oath and the Constitutionitself. Blast faxes to Congress demanding they file articlesof impeachment against Obama’s anti-gun executivelawbreaking!”Don’t remember getting any of these when Bush launchedtwo wars without a constitutional declaration of war. And ifwe are going to impeach Obama, what are we going to dowith these Republicans?For the record, yes, of course, I loathe Obama, as I havewritten here.Hope or Hoppe?by Laurence M. VanceFirst there was the man from Hope, and now there isHope personified. But before each of them there wasHoppe.Barack Hussein Obama is the president of the United States of America. He formerly taughtconstitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School. He is a product of the infamous ChicagoDemocratic political machine. Obama is the author of Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race andInheritance and The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.Hans-Hermann Hoppe is president of the Property and Freedom Society. He formerly taught economicsat the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is a product of the late Austro-Libertarian economist andphilosopher Murray Rothbard. Hoppe is the author of A Theory of Capitalism and Socialism, TheEconomics and Ethics of Private Property, and Democracy: The God that Failed: The Economics andPolitics of Monarchy, Democracy, and Natural Order.
    • There are a number of things that President Obama can be identified with: Fascism, communism, socialism, interventionism, redistribution of wealth, racial preference, affirmative action, ACORN, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, aberrant Christianity, liberalism, extreme left- winger, radical leftist, Community Reinvestment Act, protective tariffs, continuation of the war in Iraq, escalation of the war in Afghanistan, five fronts in the war on terror, possible military action against Iran, larger military budgets, predator drone attacks, community organizer, lying politician, biography embellisher, increased national debt, unbalanced budgets, trillion-dollar budget deficits, hate crimes legislation, universal health care, food stamps, SCHIP, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, tax rate increases, new taxes, progressive income tax rates, EITC, gun control, Head Start, WIC, TANF, welfare, abortion, war on drugs, public education, faith-based programs, TARP, bailouts, subsidies, Keynesian economics, public financing of elections, the USA PATRIOT Act, increases in the minimum wage, organized labor, cap and trade, government czars, egalitarianism, fighting global warming, cutting greenhouse gas emissions, combating climate change, foreign aid, Federal Reserve, Cuban embargo, appeasing AIPAC, federally funded embryonic stem cell research, no oil drilling in the Arctic, increased CAFE standards, the U.S. Global empire, and the military/industrial/security state.In addition to being against all of the above, there are a number of things thatPresident Hoppe can be identified with: Classical liberalism, laissez faire capitalism, anarcho-capitalism, uncompromising intellectual radicalism, intransigent libertarian radicalism, Austro-libertarianism, Austrian economics, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, praxeology, the absolute inviolability of justly acquired private property, absolute freedom of contract, absolute freedom of association, absolute freedom of discrimination, unconditional free exchange and free trade, free markets, sound money, free banking, gold, peace, nonintervention, entrepreneurship, liberty, the private production of defense, and the privatization of all socialized (government) property.For those not familiar with Hoppe, his writings, and his philosophy, Irecommend the recently-published festschrift in honor of Hoppes sixtieth birthday: Property, Freedom,and Society: Essays in Honor of Hans-Hermann Hoppe (Mises Institute, 2009).This is a book of 400 pages that contains 35 essays by colleagues, friends, associates, and formerstudents of Hoppe, plus an introduction by two of the contributors who served as editors, Jörg GuidoHülsmann and Stephan Kinsella. The book is divided into five parts: Grato Animo BeneficiqueMemores, Crossroads of Thought, Political Philosophy, Democracy Reconsidered, and Economics.Each part contains from four to eleven essays. Indexes of names and subjects are also provided, as wellas information about the contributors.The nature of essays is quite diverse. Most of them were written exclusively for the book. Some ofthem are papers that were written previously. A few of them are adapted from recent lectures. All ofthem celebrate the profound original insights of Hoppe in the areas of property and property rights,money and banking, time preference, immigration, Austrian economics, capitalism, democracy,Marxism, socialism, libertarianism, public goods, and the private provision of security.
    • I would like to single out four essays in particular. Paul Gottfrieds "Hans- Hermann Hoppe and the Libertarian Right" informs us about the shortcomings of left-libertarianism. Jesús Herta de Sotos "Classical Liberalism versus Anarcho-Capitalism" instructs us about the fatal error of classical liberalism that contains the seed of its own destruction. Stephan Kinsellas "What Libertarianism Is" explains the importance of property rights to libertarianism. Robert Higgss "Democracy and Faits Accomplis" makes clear the failures of thedemocratic system once elected rulers have taken office and done their damage to society.There is no greater contrast than that between Obama and Hoppe.I am no fan of Alan Keyes, but he recently said about Obama: "Obama is a radical communistand I think its becoming clear. Thats what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizesits true. Hes going to destroy this country. Were either going to stop him or the United States ofAmerica is going to cease to exist. . . . The man is an abomination."Compare this with the assessment ofHoppe by Professor Yuri Maltsev, acontributor to Property, Freedom, andSociety: "Hans-Hermann Hoppe is themost ardent advocate of liberty in ourtime. He has done more to advance ourunderstanding of philosophical, legal,economic, and cultural aspects of libertyand private property than any other livingintellectual."I first heard Hoppe speak at the MisesInstitutes Reassessing the Presidencyconference in 1998. I have been hookedon Hoppe ever since. A Hoppean societyis a free society. A society based onObamas principles is a government-monitored, government-regulated,government-controlled authoritariansociety. Hope or Hoppe? I think thechoice is obvious. http://www.infowars.com/
