Rep. Louie Gohmert is a tough-talking Republican from Texas’ 1st Congressional District who speaks his mind about President Barack Obama. He has a theory about the massive influx of immigrant children along the Texas border with Mexico. Appearing on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Gohmert said he believes it’s all about turning Texas blue.
Here is what he told Malzberg:
“In the end they have said they want to turn Texas blue and they want to turn America blue. If you bring in hundreds of thousands or millions of people and give them the ability to vote and tell them if you want to keep getting the benefits you have to go vote… that drives people to vote and it would ensure republicans will never get elected again.”
We don’t doubt it. President Obama is using his second term “flexibility” to create a liberal legacy that he hope swill be of lasting proportion. The writer Ed Klein, whose new book “Blood Feud” is a best-seller, has discussed an possible Obama “mini-me” that he believes may be Elizabeth Warren.
Warren is ultra-liberal member of the House of Representatives from Massachusetts known for falsely claiming to be of Native American lineage and for originating the famous “you didn’t build that” comment that was later picked up by Obama.
Warren was considering a run for the Congress in August, 2011 and gave a spirited defense of liberal income-redistribution theory at an event in Andover, Massachusetts. Video turned up on the internet, showing Warren defending the idea of soaking the rich with heavy taxes.
“I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.’ No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
This is classic liberal economics – very socialist, very Marxist, and right in line with President Obama’s philosophy. So much so that he borrowed the idea for his speech in Roanoke, Virginia. What does this tell us? First, it tells us that Obama is, to at least some extent, a follower of Warren’s. SHE, not HE, originated this specific line of though, although it comes from classic Marxist ideology. Obama paraphrased Warren this way:
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me—because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t—look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own… If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
So Ed Klein has a point. The Obamas and the Clinton got crossways early in the campaign for Obama’s first term. Obama turned out to be a better strategist. Just as he has attacked Republicans with class warfare, and the fabricated “War on Women,” he went after Hillary and solidly defeated her. Bill Clintons, in particular, has held a grudge.
Now that Obama is entering the home stretch, Klein thinks his big goal is to find a successor that will keep his ultra-liberal policies going. Gohmert thinks he wants to turn Texas blue. Both men may be right.
Hillary, in all likelihood, see things Obama is doing that she would change. She’s liberal, but more pragmatic that Obama. Remember when she and Bill had the White House, they could turn on a dime. Obama NEVER turns. He digs in. He uses Cloward-Piven Strategy and Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” rather than old-style politics to achieve his goals. Currently, he is using immigration and climate change along with Obamacare to force a deeply entrenched Marxism into our society.
If both Klein and Gohmert are right, America as we know it is in great danger. President Elizabeth warren would be a ruthless as Obama has been – and remember, she has used lies in the past for political purposes. She will have no moral obstacles to doing it again. And if Texas turns blue, it’s all over for the conservative movement. With Texas and California in the Democrats’ pocket, neither a Republican president nor a congressional majority would be possible – ever again.
So is it all over for us conservatives. Nope. We are strong and we will fight for capitalism, free markets, and the Constitution. Our work is cut out for us, and there should be no doubt that the soul of America is at stake.
