The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Is It Obama vs. Putin, Or Do They Really Work For The Same People?

Here's the Nonsense:  Obama and Putin are in a cold war against each other and Obama must stand up against the Russians or America will lose face and security in the world. 

Here's the Horse Sense: Not only has America already lost face and security to Russia under Obama, his actions, along with his history, point to something much more sinister, maybe even an alliance.

Americans complain that President Obama doesn't stand up to Vladimir Putin.  They are stunned to see how he wavers between allowing Russia to walk all over the U. S. in international affairs and his kowtowing to them with such actions as when he told Russia's then-president Dmitry Medvedev, prior to the 2012 U. S. presidential election, to let Putin know that he'd have more flexibility in reducing America's nuclear weapons numbers after his reelection.  Sometimes we even see Obama try to put on a front that he's taking a strong stand against Putin and Russia.  But the fact is that he does little and Russia only laughs at us.  Is this because they are truly enemies, or is there something far more sinister going on? As each day passes under this administration any thinking person has to wonder if it's the latter.

Let's not forget that Putin is not just some new leader of Russia who came on the scene after the fall of the Soviet Union.  In fact, he is a former member of the KGB whose actions are typical of that evil organization.  It's been said for some time that the fall of the Soviet Union was staged for the West so that the Russians and Chinese could work together to further their goals of world domination.  

Those aren't easily accepted ideas these days.  People today don't like to think we've been hoodwinked.  Yet people such as Russian defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn says, "Now you know why Russian military aircraft still have the hated Communist Red Star on their wings/tail fin, and why NEW Russian naval vessels have the hated Communist Red Star placed on their bows.  That hated Communist symbol represented the 74 years that the minority Communist Party of the Soviet Union (representing no more than 10% of the adult population) persecuted majority population, and would have been immediately removed from all such military hardware if the collapse of the USSR were legitimate..."
  
What Russia is today is not far removed from what it was when it was known as the controlling country of the USSR.  In his book, Understanding Politics: Ideas, Institutions and Issues, author Thomas Magstadt reminds us that former Russian president Yeltsin named Putin as prime minister in August 1999.  While Yeltsin's first 4 prime ministers had not lasted, Putin was different.  Within 8 months Putin was president of Russia.  Putin stood against the oligarchs who'd gotten control of large portions of what had been the Soviet economy under Yeltsin's leadership.  Then he took actions that showed some support for economic reforms, but the biggest advantage was probably the high oil prices at the time that helped bring back the Russian economy.  Putin has retained control of the politics of the country, whether as president or prime minister didn't matter.  He has virtually wiped out the independent media and brought in the old KGB, police and army to run the country, as reported in this UK Telegraph story from 2000.

While it appears to the world that Putin has great power, the fact is that he is accountable to those old KGB types who really run the country.  They are the ones calling the shots.

Most thinking Americans have realized for some time that Obama is also accountable to someone else, too.  Some suggest that Valerie Jarrett really controls him, even though it's apparent that people far more powerful are behind the scenes controlling the puppet Obama.  

Some even say George Soros controls him, but I think even Soros is accountable to someone else (click here to read Trevor Loudon's interesting article about Soros' ties to the communists).  Could it be that Obama may very well be driven by the same powers that direct the actions of Putin?

Yes, I know that most of you are probably groaning thinking I've lost it, but there have been too many things with this presidency to raise questions.  

It starts with Obama having all of his personal records from school and his life prior to elected office sealed so that no one can see even the most basic school, medical, or travel records.  We know more about any other president in American history than we know about Obama.    

The list goes on and on.  This isn't just a "birther" thing where it is said that some people think he wasn't born in the U. S.  (Personally I think he was born in Hawaii, but that's not even the issue here.)  It's about total secrecy regarding his life and an upbringing under anti-American influences.

We know of his ties to people like Bill Ayers, the terrorist who went unpunished for his actions with the Weather Underground.  And his relationship with Jeremiah Wright, the minister in Obama's church in Chicago told Edward Klein when he was writing his book, The Amateur, that he told Obama he'd make him (Obama) comfortable around Christians with his (Obama's) Muslim faith.  Of course the Christianity that Wright espouses is not Christianity at all, but black liberation theology which is nothing more than communism being pushed on the black community.  Click here to read about black liberation theology and its Marxist roots. 

The Russian communist's plan to overthrow America includes efforts to infiltrate and subvert the churches.  In 1963 the Communist's goals to achieve the overthrow of America were entered into the Congressional Record.  You can see them by clicking here.  Number 27 is very interesting.  It says, "Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with 'social' religion.  Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need to intellectual maturity which does not need a 'religious crutch.'"

Barack Obama Sr. was also a communist.  And we can't forget that President Obama's mentor was Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying communist and a man who Obama's grandfather chose to have great influence over Barry, the picture gets even more disconcerting.  

Paul Kengor, author of the great book The Communist, wrote an article for The American Spectator about the influences of Frank Marshall Davis on young Barry.  He concludes the article saying, "In sum, Frank Marshall Davis surely helps shed light on how America's current president developed into a man of the left, ultimately ranked by National Journal as the most left-leaning member of the U. S. Senate - to the left of Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton, and everyone else - in the final year before he ran for president.  The man [Obama] now in charge of the mightiest economic engine in the history of humanity was influenced, to some notable degree, by a pro-Soviet CPUSA (Communist Party USA) member [Frank Marshall Davis] who plainly stood on the wrong side of history - stumping for an ideology that took the lives of over 100 million people in the last century.  This man planted his flag on the dark side of the Iron Curtain.  This man, and his relationship with the most powerful man in the world - our current president - at least merits our attention."


Sam Webb, National Chair of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), spoke to their national committee on Nov. 15, 2008 and said regarding the CPUSA's relationship with Obama, "The left can and should advance its own views and disagree with the Obama administration without being disagreeable. Its tone should be respectful. We are speaking to a friend."

Obama has even said he sought out the communist professors to learn from when he was in school.  He wanted those influences.  His life is filled with people tied to the communists so it should be no surprise to us how he has handled things while president.  If his goal is the fundamental transformation of America, then why shouldn't we ask if he's not just influenced by communist ideology, but under the pressure, influence, even control of the Russian communists who have been working for generations to overthrow America?

Most will reject this idea, but let me add another piece of information for consideration.  There is a story that has been around for years, but mostly ignored by the media (even conservative media).  WND published an article in 2009 that shares the story.  A man named Tom Fife was a contractor with the Defense Intelligence Agency who spent a great deal of time in Russia.  In 1992 while in Moscow he was invited to a party at the apartment of one of his Russian contacts.  As the evening wore on the wife of his Russian friend started speaking against America.  She told him that soon America would have a black president named Barack and that he was a communist who had a white mother and a father who was black from Africa.  She also said he was educated in America's Ivy League schools.  She even said he was from Hawaii and lived in Chicago.  Many details were shared, and this was long before Obama was on the national stage.  For more information go to the link I provided.      

Is the story true?  I am not sure.  But it certainly raises a lot of questions.  More importantly, though, is what Sam Webb of the CPUSA said when he referred to Obama as a friend of the Communist Party USA.  

America is in more trouble than people are willing to face.  Our nation is not just teetering on the edge of a cliff, it has been pushed over a cliff by people controlling our government who either are so ignorant that they don't have the sense of a first grader or their actions are intentional.  It's hard to believe we've had so many people so ignorant for so long as to cause this.  Rather, it only makes sense to consider that the generations-long efforts of the communists to overthrow America might really be happening right under our noses.  They're doing it under the label of "progressive."  And the current figurehead leader, our president Barack Obama, has a background that should do more than just raise concern.

I wrote a moment ago that America has been pushed over a cliff.  It has, and we're plummeting to our doom.  The "tail end" of what is left of the America created by our founders is racing by being pulled over that cliff by the rest of the country that is already over the edge.  We only have a very limited time to grab that tail and try to pull our nation back up or all is lost.
With this Americans have abandoned God and morality and left our nation and our future in a position that can only result in disaster and slavery to a government like nothing even dreamed of by Americans.  

God has warned mankind and our only hope is to listen to His warning.  In Proverbs 1:24-33 He says, "But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;  I will mock when calamity overtakes you - when calamity overtakes you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.  Then they will call to me but I will not answer;  they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord.  Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.  For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;  but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."
