Show 687  Reviewing clips of Ronald Reagan’s speeches, Long and Steyn reflect on Reagan’s relevance to issues confronting America today. Speaking of Reagan’s “The Last Stand on Earth” address, Steyn remarks on “how easily you can pick up the argument [made in 1964 about the threat of Soviet communism] and drop it right down into the current circumstances [the threat of Islamic extremism].” Recorded April 26, 2010 Uncommon Knowledge.

To watch the video of this interview visit:

They further review Reagan’s positions on socialized medicine, the Constitution (and what Steyn terms “the persistence of the monarchical urge”), and government spending. Finally Long and Steyn challenge Newt Gingrich's assertion that “it is time to let Ronald Reagan go. Not from our reverent memory of course, but as our touchstone, as our icon, as our hallmark, and our reference point.” (38:02)

  • Mark Steyn and Rob Long discuss with Hoover fellow Peter Robinson the relevance today of what Ronald Reagan said about America in 1964.
  • at 8:14 Mark Steyn and Rob Long reflect on Ronald Reagan’s stand against socialized medicine.

Show 685 Radical-in-Chief   Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.

 From the David Horowitz Freedom Center

To view this video and many more visit   http://www.davidhorowitztv.com/

 Speech by Stanley Kurtz, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, as well as a contributing editor for National Review Online. His new book is Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.

 

Synopsis of Radical in Chief-  An in-depth examination of President Barack Obama and his policies by journalist and political commentator Stanley Kurtz.

 

STANLEY KURTZ is a Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, as well as a contributing editor for National Review Online. He has also written for National Review, The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal, Policy Review, and Commentary.

 

Is President Obama a socialist? Now, the definitive answer: Yes -- and the proof is hidden in his past

Barack Obama's opponents sense something more radical in his efforts to be a "transformational" president than mainstream Democratic Party liberalism. But is it fair to call him a socialist? Stanley Kurtz began his investigation into Obama's political beliefs with every expectation of answering that question "no." Now, however, after two years of digging into hitherto unexplored archives and other sources, he has changed my mind. "I am now convinced that the president of the United States is -- literally -- a socialist." In Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, he explains why.

 

As Kurtz reveals, from adolescence right through to his adult political career, Obama lived and worked at the very center of a socialist world. How is that possible? After all, before he ran for office, Obama was immersed in the universe of community organizing -- not "socialism." But that, writes Kurtz, is the link. Community organizing is a socialist world. The reason most people don't know that is that community organizers consciously disguise their socialism.

In fact, reveals Kurtz, Obama's colleagues and mentors were some of the sharpest and most influential stealth-socialist community organizers in the country. Moreover, his overarching political strategy is in large measure borrowed from these teachers. In Radical-in-Chief, Kurtz reconstructs the socialist back-story of community organizing -- and show how deeply Barack Obama remains immersed in that world. Much of the material Kurtz presents has been unknown up to now. All of it suggests that the truth about the president's political convictions is very different from what we've been told.

 

Among the revelations you'll read about here:

 

 How in the 1970's and 1980's -- an era when violent revolution came to seem like a pipe-dream -- America's socialists increasingly turned to community organizing as a way to socialize the country by degrees, through grassroots activism "from below"

 

How, in April of 1983, Obama's life changed forever when, during his senior year at Columbia University, he attended his first of many "Socialist Scholars Conference" in New York -- and there discovered community organizing and its stealth-socialist agenda

 

How Obama's attendance at Socialist Scholars Conferences fully acquainted him with the socialist organizing strategy of the day -- including the hope that elected officials would emerge from a broad-based (but socialist- directed) grassroots movement of the left

 

Obama's long association with an organizer training institute called the Midwest Academy -- whose archives reveal it to be a classic socialist "front group" acting as the coordinating center of a network of foundations, community organizations, issue coalitions, and campaigns

 

How Alice Palmer, the Illinois State Senator who hand- picked Obama as her successor in 1995, worked closely with the Midwest Academy -- a connection that explains a lot about Obama's political start

 

Obama's extensive ties to UNO of Chicago, a radical community organization that in the eighties was a kind of Hispanic counterpart to ACORN -- and how Obama supported and participated in its aggressive actions

 

How by combining a study of UNO of Chicago with an analysis of previously unknown documents from Obama's organizing days, we can reconstruct some of the stories Obama chose to leave out of his famous memoirs

 

The ACORN connection: How previously unknown documents reveal Obama's handling of the ACORN controversy during the presidential campaign as a deeply deceptive attempt to shield his radical past from scrutiny

 

How a rich cache of ACORN documents leads to nearly the whole of Obama's socialist political world -- the Midwest Academy, Bill Ayers and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright included

 

New evidence that suggests that the connection between Obama and 60s terrorist Bill Ayers may long pre-date their supposed initial meeting in 1995 -- and that Ayers's post-election statements regarding his relationship with Obama are misleading

 

Why the importance of the Obama-Ayers relationship has less to do with Ayers's decades-old terrorist adventures than with the foundation-based partnership between the two in support of Chicago's socialist organizing network

 

Jeremiah Wright: Why the hidden basis of his connection to Obama lies in the socialist character of black liberation theology

 

How, contrary to Obama's claims that Wright was simply a religious influence, new evidence indicates that his relationship with Wright was thoroughly political from the start

 

How, during his time in the Illinois State Senate, Obama functioned as a powerful legislative ally to his early socialist organizing network

 

How modern 'stealth' socialism has changed -- and how it continues to influence the Democratic Party

 

What Obama's early legislative experience sheds light on his legislative style as President -- including the blatant use of fiscal trickery to pass health-care reform

 

How Obama's current policies and politics grow directly out of the nexus of socialist associates and theories that has shaped him throughout his adult life

In short, writes Kurtz, Obama has hidden his core political beliefs from the American people. And while many will simply assume that at some point Obama's early socialist phase gave way to a more traditional liberalism, the evidence plainly shows this assumption requires more of a stretch than the record allows. The conclusion is inescapable: "If Americans in 2008 had understood all that I present here about Obama's community organizing mentors and colleagues, I believe he would not be president of the United States today."

May/June 2010 – The New New Deal – Charles R. Kesler

In President Obama, conservatives face the most formidable liberal politician in at least a generation. In 2008, he won the presidency with a majority of the popular vote—something a Democrat had not done since Jimmy Carter’s squeaker in 1976—and handily increased the Democrats’ control of both houses of Congress. Measured against roughly two centuries worth of presidential victories by Democratic non-incumbents, his win as a percentage of the popular vote comes in third behind FDR’s in 1932 and Andrew Jackson’s in 1828. More importantly, Obama won election not as a status quo liberal, but as an ambitious reformer. Far from being content with incremental gains, he set his sights on major systemic change in health care, energy and environmental policy, taxation, financial regulation, education, and even immigration, all pursued as elements of a grand strategy to “remake America.” In other words, he longs to be another FDR, building a New New Deal for the 21st century, dictating the politics of his age, and enshrining the Democrats as the new majority party for several decades to come. Suddenly, the era of big government being over is over; and tax-and-spend liberalism is back with a vengeance. We face a $1.4 trillion federal deficit this fiscal year alone and $10-12 trillion in total debt over the coming decade.
