Here is video of CNBC’s Rick Santelli yesterday slamming Barack Obama’s push for unlimited power to raise the debt-ceiling without any approval by Congress. Santelli said the Toy Story theme of “to infinity and beyond” describes Obama’s view of the debt-ceiling. He also said instead of the old movies titles “The Road to Morocco” “the Road to Singapore,” Obama has American on “the Road to the Weimar Republic” – a reference to the Government of Germany following World War I that preceded the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Nazis to power in 1933. The Weimar Republic was hit with hyperinflation as it tried to deal with rebuilding a devastated economy and the burden of War Reparations after losing World War I.
Here is video of Glenn Beck yesterday, giving an extensive commentary on where he believes we are headed as a country. Beck believes the worst may be yet to come.
He began by pointing to a near riot that broke out in Atlanta recently as a large crowd gathered to receive assistance.
Beck said Obama’s claim that an economic recovery has started flies in the face of the economic realities we are now facing.
He likened Obama’s claim that this is “Recovery Summer” to former President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” statement about Iraq. Yet, the media is not scrutinizing Obama’s claim like they mercilessly twisted and attacked Bush’s statement.
Beck then extensively compared the conditions in America today, to what happened in Germany’s Wiemar Republic after World War I and leading up to the rise of Adolf Hitler. He traces how the disillusionment of average Germans led to a breakdown of the society in terms of morals, and attacks on religious faith. Following the breakdown of society, the stage was set for the rise of totalitarianism.
