As a young woman I once had a job at Ohio State University Hospital. I was 20. It was 1969-1970. SDS riots came to the campus while I was there. I saw the rampage, the instigation from communists, the students behaving like insane children having temper tantrums, the violence, and the tear gas. It was one of those pivotal times in one's life that you don't forget. It was during this time the National Guard was called in by the governor to quell the riots on college campuses. Kent State was an hour or so from OSU. The night of the shootings, I lay in bed watching National Guard helicopters with spot lights hovering over our area all night long. The sounds, sights, and the news reports of those days have stayed with me. The radio playing Simon and Garfunkel songs, the spotlight sweeping across the dark landscape, Vietnam growing worse by the day, distrust of anyone in government was the badge of the times, druggies and hippies everywhere. It wasn't cool. It wasn't fun. It was unsettling, to say the least. It was my first lesson in what sort of destruction could be wrought by the Weather Underground, the Black Panthers, and the SDS. I wondered how university students could be so stupid as to buy into wrecking the country while on the verge of their adult lives. What did they think they were going to gain by property destruction and chaos? I remember asking myself, "Why would anyone act like that?" The question is now not 'why' they are doing this, but how will you stop them? After a point, the 'why' doesn't matter. We know why. Their motivations are pure hate of liberty and lust for power. It is as simple as that.
Evidently the Weather Underground figured out how to "change" themselves into mainstream characters, getting themselves placed into positions in academia all across the nation. And here we are 40 years later and they have weaseled their way into the White House of the United States and every attached agency thereof. This didn't happen by osmosis. This happened with money given to them by enemies of the United States. This happened by buying media propaganda machines to turn the public into useful idiots. (Listen to Chris Matthews who says one of his heroes is Saul Alinsky.) This happened by lying about their purposes, to gain authority and then take over the country. Right before your very eyes.

Reap the Whirlwind
The violence at Kent State and the turmoil throughout the nation in the 1960s and early 1970s was an outgrowth of the propaganda spread through the nation's schools and universities over the previous three decades. This might have been more clearly revealed in the aftermath of the violence, but much was held back and kept under wraps. Just why documents like the FBI investigations from Kent State were held back, and why key passages were overlooked or classified when the media was disseminating the impression that campus violence was spontaneous, impulsive and unprovoked, is unknown. Perhaps the FBI assumed the media was already infiltrated — many employees from the once-highly secretive "psychological warfare branch" of the War Department (G-2) and the Office of War Information (OWI) had already become liberal-socialist media executives once the war was over (among them CBS' William Paley, Time/Life's C. D. Jackson, and the editors of high-value publications like Holiday, Look, Fortune, Coronet, Parade, the Saturday Review and Viking Press). Handing over damning material to a "closed club" like that might have been deemed counterproductive.
Yet, not doing so provided a window of opportunity for now-infamous "community activist" groups like ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), founded in the same year as the Kent State incident, and the ever-present ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), formally established in 1920 but by 1970 wreaking havoc. These organizations — mimicking the writings of Marcuse, Counts, and Neill — portrayed themselves as defenders of the helpless, while simultaneously hastening the death of the American Dream.
It was a horrid miscalculation on the part of the FBI. Community activism, for example, was once a positive term applied to any collective activity toward a social, moral or political good, in the mold of our nation's founders. But under the transplanted mentor/philosophers of the Left, the term morphed into the "use of direct, often confrontational action, such as a demonstration or strike, in opposition to or support of a cause."
Still, at least one publication attempted to get to the bottom of things. Just four years after the Kent State incident, a revealing article by Alan Stang — television writer, producer, best-selling author, consultant and former business editor for Prentice-Hall, Inc. — wrote a piece for American Opinion magazine (the forerunner of The New American) entitled "Proof to Save the Guardsmen." In it, Stang alluded to much of what has recently been revealed. "Today the phony 'revolution' which is trying to destroy America deliberately arranges for its own martyrs by conning victims into serving as cannon fodder," Stang wrote in the article. He wrote similarly of the "1968 Democrat National Convention, where students got their skulls fractured when their leaders attacked the police."
Notice he said "their leaders," not the students themselves. Even from fuzzy 1968 media footage, one could tell that many among the perpetrators were not young college students, but adults. Many were later exposed as a semi-trained mix of foreign radicals and professional agitators.
Stang already had a reputation for doing his homework. Of the Kent State affair, he wrote:
"The way the national press tells it [in the 1970s], Kent State University was an idyllic Shangri-la of contemplation until the moment of the shooting. The New York Times of the following day explained that "until recently the school's most serious demonstration was a 1958 panty raid on two women's dormitories." But the fact is that the killings on the campus were the predictable result of almost two years of Communist agitation by such terrorist gangs as Students for a Democratic Society.
"For instance, in the fall of 1968, Kent State was treated to two appearances by Mark Rudd, the S.D.S. leader who had led the seizure of campus buildings earlier that year at Columbia University in New York. Another frequent visitor was Bernardine Dohrn, an S.D.S. official who calls herself a "revolutionary Communist," and who according to James Michener, in Kent State, (...Fawcett World, New York, 1972) told the students: ‘They've shot blacks in Orangeburg, South Carolina, and they're certainly going to shoot whites here.' "
Remember Bernadine Dohrn? Leader of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM), a radical wing of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in the late 1960s as well as the October 1969 Days of Rage riot in Chicago, a founder of the Weather Underground that bombed federal buildings and police stations? A stated goal of the Underground was to help achieve world communism, synthesized in a long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other Weather Undergrounders. The book became the Underground's ideological manifesto, with Ayers declaring himself a communist, and the promise of inaugurating a bombing campaign aimed at overthrowing the American government. Dohrn and Ayers became fugitives when one bomb — designed to kill army officers in New Jersey — accidentally exploded in a New York townhouse. In other sworn testimony of the 1970s, former FBI informant Larry Grathwohl implicated Ayers and Dohrn in planning the bombing murder of San Francisco Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell. Metal staples from the bomb had ripped through the sergeant's body, killing him after several agonizing days in the hospital.
Many sources now place the Obamas in cahoots with Dohrn and Ayers. In fact, in 1995, as recounted by Wikipedia, "Obama and Ayers first met in 1995 when Ayers and Dohrn hosted a small gathering at their home ... at which then-state Senator Alice J. Palmer introduced Barack Obama to the group as her chosen successor for the 1996 Democratic primary." Remember, this is the future President of the United States meeting with a pair of domestic terrorists who had remained underground for years, hiding to avoid arrest for their crimes. The pair still consider themselves radicals. As recently as 2006, for instance, Ayers was in Venezuela for the "World Education Forum." There he lauded Chavez and his "Bolivarian Revolution" and announced: "We share the belief that education is the motor force of revolution...."
But Dohrn, Ayers, the Obamas and now Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan are but a handful among the Boomers who cut their teeth on socialism and Marxist philosophy, then aspired to positions of trust and authority where they eventually gained legitimacy. This brings new meaning to the question of who won the Cold War.
Yes, friends, "you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." But you do need ethics in journalism, i.e. journalists who will expose the truth to the American people. The elections in America (for several years, but especially 2008) have been manipulated and skewed by voter fraud, by misinformation, and by power brokers who hate America. These power brokers have been funding Dorhn, Ayers, the Obamas, and all who consort with them to bring the country down.
We can suffer through a few bad politicians now and again. But we cannot survive a public that is so ill informed, and so duped, and so ignorant of the truth. Thankfully, all of the American people are not so easily taken in by lies. This is why the TEA Party movement is critical to our nation's survival. It isn't only about "taxed enough already." It is about putting the Constitution back into the foundation of our lives. It is about putting citizens into government, citizens who love the country enough to save it from the enemies attacking us. It is about getting communism the hell out of here...on all levels. (Socialism, Communism, Fascism, etc.) All of it...unAmerican, unConstitutional, untenable, unsustainable methods of destruction of the most successful country on the face of the earth.The Obamas and their friends are part of a conspiracy to take down our country. If you don't believe this....you haven't learned history or looked at the facts. I beg you to educate yourselves and figure this out....fast. Where were you when they destroyed America? Sitting there with your 'feelings,' or doing your damnedest to save our country?
