American capitalism gone with a whimper or without?

I Received this in an E-mail,  Found it again on snopes, as a verified true story(see here), which refered back to the Russian news organization Pravda which apparently got it from a blogger named  Stanislav Mishin. (tried to find it on that blog, but there is a lot there, and I was tired of tracking it down.)

it appears this article has made it’s rounds. I traced it down that far, and got tired of the hunt. the Pravda link above is enough.

Regardless, this type of article would never appear in an American newspaper of today, but it should not be ignored. In fact everyone should read it.

Here is an excerpt from the Pravda article:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonald’s burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

I would encourage you to read the whole thing.

Jack jordan’s campaign please send this to your marshall county friends

I recently received an e-mail from Linda (Mullen) Clevenger entitled “Let’s all rally around Jack”.  It was a nice description of the Jack that we all know and love.  As you may know  I have been working along with many others to educate  the voters of the 2nd District about Jack.  In four short months Jack has been working tirelessly to win over a very large district that until a few months ago had never heard his name. His hard work is bearing fruit.

Today the Elkhart Truth endorsed Jack over their hometown candidate. Jack is running strong in  Kokomo, La Porte, Fulton, Starke, White and Pulaski Counties, and I think he owns Cass County.  The people of Bremen and Marshall County can be proud of Jack, he has positioned himself to pull off the political upset of the year in Indiana. In order for this to happen Jack needs a huge turnout in Marshall County! In 2006 (the last non Presidential Congressional primary) of the 32,000 registered voters in Marshall County only 4900 voted. WE CAN DO BETTER!!!

Unlike a sporting event where fan turnout has little to do with the outcome of the game in elections TURNOUT IS THE GAME!!! Grab a friend or two drag them to the polls on Tuesday.  Make it an expectation, and we can make a difference.  Let’s put a” Made in Marshall County” stamp on the  112th U.S.Congress.

Please send this to your Marshall County contact list as soon as possible!
Thank You for your interest!  Todd Stuckman

Additional urgent jordan update – may 1

Jack Jordan

Dear Campaign Team –

Sadly, our opponent continues to exaggerate endorsements!

Exaggerated Endorsements:

#1 – NRA Endorsement: I’m a Lifetime Member of the NRA and a strong proponent of protecting our second amendment rights.  Therefore, I was deeply disappointed by our opponent’s misrepresentation of this fine organization and falsely claiming the NRA was endorsing her over me.  The title on the very front page of the South Bend Tribune today, “NRA Scolds Walorski Over Press Release.” Source:  South Bend Tribune, May 1, 2010  http://www.southbendtribune.com/article/20100430/News01/100439934/1129/News

#2 – 4 Group Endorsements: Last week our opponent had a press conference with 4 individuals and then issued a press release stating that 4 groups had endorsed her.  Unfortunately, that was a misrepresentation of the facts.  The truth was that the 4 individuals (not even the top leader of each of these groups) stated their public support for her.  Following is from the Elkhart Truth reporter who attended the event and then our opponent’s press release:

Elkhart Truth, April 23, 2010 by Josh Weinhold:

“…The members of many of the tea party movement groups voted to not endorse candidates this year, leaders said. Thus, the endorsements do not represent the groups’ official approval…”

The title and first paragraph of our opponent’s official Facebook Press Release.   Exaggerating and explicitly stating endorsements from the groups:

Stand with Jackie: Local Tea Party, Taxpayer Groups Endorse Walorski

Local Tea Party, Taxpayer Groups Endorse Walorski

Friday, April 23, 2010 at 12:45pm

(Elkhart, IN) – Leaders from local Tea Party and taxpayer groups today announced their endorsement for Republican 2nd Congressional District Candidate Jackie Walorski. Groups making official endorsements of Jackie’s candidacy were Citizen’s for Common Sense, the St. Joe County Tea Party Patriots, Concerned Citizens of Michiana, and the Tea Party of Michiana Action Coalition.

#3 – On the lighter side: Our opponent did get the endorsement of Mike Pence.  But as I talked with Mike face-to-face last week, he sheepishly revealed that he had promised Jackie months before I got into the race that he would support her when she ran.  He felt it was important that he keep his promise to her.   He said, however, he has followed our race closely and is extremely impressed with our campaign.  Mike then went on to say that if we win in November that he looks forward to working with me in the U.S. Congress beginning in January!

Lastly, reminding you again of the absolute importance of voting in this upcoming Tuesday, May 4th Republican Primary along with urging your family members and friends to get out and vote for Jack Jordan (to ultimately replace Joe Donnelly in the U.S. Congress).  Voter turn-out will win this race for us!

With sincere appreciation for all your help and support,

Urgent jack jordan campaign update

Dear Campaign Team,

Respectfully asking for your help in 2 areas:

#1 – The absolute importance of voting this upcoming Tuesday in the Republican Primary…along with urging your family members and friends to vote for Jack Jordan (to ultimately replace Joe Donnelly in the U.S. Congress).

#2 – Please forward this e-mail quickly and broadly to your many e-mail contacts.  (Recipients, please forward to your contacts)

These are very serious times…one man recently told me that he would lose his right to complain if he didn’t vote in the May 4th Primary.   In this Primary, Republicans have a choice between 2 distinctly different candidates to replace Joe Donnelly.  Jackie Walorski has the typical politician’s resume and she would be “more of the same” in Congress.  Or me, Jack Jordan, who has a real life resume.  I have been blessed to have significant experiences in business, leadership, missions, healthcare, education and international opportunities.   With strong voter turn-out, we will win this race!

As you know, we won’t attack our opponent with half-truths or personal attacks…but we aren’t afraid to get the facts out.   Facts which are very important and help underscore the difference between a citizen candidate and a politician.  Following is information from a “Facts” commercial we launched on TV.  You will notice they are 100% accurately sourced.  (A link to access the commercial is at the end of this e-mail)

Has either candidate ever missed a critical committee vote on time change which would have stopped the bill? (A “politician” avoiding a difficult stance?)

Jack Jordan = 0

“Daylight-saving time still alive; Walorski’s absence lets bill move to full House.”

Source: South Bend Tribune, May 1, 2005 by Martin DeAgostino

“Fox News bloviator Bill O’Reilly calls it “the no spin zone.”

That’s where he corrects the selective memory of public figures whose commitment to the truth seems, shall we say, less than total.

Here then, are some “no-spin” correctives generated by the 2005 Indiana General Assembly…..”

“Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Lakeville, announcing that “I voted ‘no’ every single time that (daylight-saving  time) has been brought up.”

No-spin correction: It’s not always how you vote, but when, and Walorski skipped a committee meeting and vote where she had a unique opportunity to bury the bill.

She cited a competing committee schedule, but the Tribune attended both meetings and there was plenty of time between them.”

Joe donnelly at the bremen band fish fry

Joe Donnelly

The Bremen Band fish fry was yesterday, and I was rather suprized when I went to pickup my order, to see that Joe Donnelly was a couple people behind me in line.I can only assume that this is because he realizes that with the current state of the republican campaigns, that he needs to be out and about.

I believe that Joe is in for a tough time  this year. He had done a very good job as representative, and I really had no problems with him until the health care bill. I think he must realize that could be his undoing.

I will do my best to start posting about his campaign after the primaries. I do thing whichever of the top two candidates that are running against him this year wins the primary, will probably win the seat, but only time will tell.

Randy.
