Russian Journalist Stabbed 20 Times For Insulting Islam (Which Is Precisely Why American Journalists Will Only Insult Christianity)

May 31, 2012

Poor  Sergei. If he’d only stuck with the ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc., etc., etc. script and only attacked Christianity, he’d be fine now.

Fox News, of course, is very much hated by Allah for playing by a different script.

Journalist Assaulted In Moscow
11:39 29/05/2012
MOSCOW, May 29 (RIA Novosti)

Famous journalist and radio presenter Sergei Aslanyan has been assaulted late Monday night, Moscow police reported.

According to police, an unknown man called Aslanyan at 11.30 pm and asked him to come out for a talk. As soon as the Aslanyan left his house the man attacked him, hitting the journalist on the head and stabbing him on the chest, neck and an arm, before disappearing.

Aslanyan himself managed to call police and was later hospitalized at a major Moscow clinic where he was operated on. “The patient was brought last night to the operating room, now he is in intensive care,” said at the hospital.

Moscow police initiated an investigation over assault and seized CCTV footage hoping to establish the identity of the attacker.

It is believed the crime may be related to Aslanyan’s work. Newspaper Izvestia suggested it may be connected with provocative remarks by the journalist on religious themes

On May 14 on a live radio show on Radio Mayak, Aslanyan discussed the question of choosing a new car, and used the expression, “from rags to riches,” in the context of a discussion about the biography of the Prophet Muhammad, in a manner which has drawn condemnation from some parts of the Muslim community, with some pro-Islamic media publishing negative articles referring to the remarks.

The imam and the congregation of Kazan Zakaban Mosque and the Tatarstan community wrote a letter to the Prosecutor General of Russia, in which they stated that they were offended by Aslanyan’s comments.

The Islamic community is sensitive about perceived attacks on Islam, and its founder. The 2005 publication in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad led to a wave of protests and threats directed towards the newspaper.

In Russia, the November 2009 murder of Moscow priest Daniil Sysoev, who had been converting Muslims to Christianity, in St. Thomas’ church in southern Moscow has also heightened religious tensions in some sections of the community.

Sergey Aslanyan, who previously worked with liberal radio station Ekho Moskvy, has been with Radio Mayak since 2008, taking part in a range of programs. Radio Mayak confirmed that Aslanyan had been assaulted.

If 43 Muslim organizations had sued the George Bush administration, you can damn well bet that every mainstream media “journalist” in America would have “courageously” devoted their lives to making sure every voter knew what a horrible human being Bush was.

Cardinal Wuerl expressed the essence of the story the media are refusing to cover in a way that helps you to understand why the media is refusing to cove it:

WUERL: This lawsuit isn’t about contraception. It is about religious freedom. Embedded in the mandate is a radically new definition of what institutes a religious community, what constitutes religious ministry — brand new and never fortified in the federal level. That’s what we are arguing about.
 
The lawsuit said we have every right to serve in this community as we have served for decades and decades. The new definition says you are not really religious if you serve people other than your own and if you hire people other than your own. That wipes out all of the things that we have been doing, all the things that we contribute to the common good — our schools, our health care services, our Catholic charity and even parish soup kitchens and pantries. All that’s wiped out.
 
WALLACE: Let me pick up on that, because the White House says — the famous accommodation by President Obama, that they changed the mandates so that the insurance companies that you are dealing with, to provide health insurance coverage to your employees have to provide the birth control for free and that the charities and the schools and the hospitals, don’t have to do anything.
 
WUERL: This is one of the reasons why we say the accommodation didn’t change anything, because so many of our institutions, certainly the archdiocese, is self insured. We are the insurer.
 
So, when you say, don’t worry, we changed this and only the insurer has to pay. And we are the insurer, there is no accommodation.
 
WALLACE: But they’re saying, well, over the next year, we are taking public comment on this. And we will tweak that regulation so that the self insurers will not have to provide the birth control.
 
WUERL: Last time the government said we are going to hear from you, 200,000 suggestions went in and not one of them was accepted.
 
What was in the presentation before the request for suggestions was exactly what the administration reported out. By the way, it’s a law. It’s a law right now.
 
All of this conversation about we’ll find a way around it, that’s conversation. What’s law right now, is that that definition is what we are going to have to live with. And that’s why we went to court, because in the United States, if there is an impasse on the individual rights, we’re going to court and that way you scrape away all of the politics.
 
WALLACE: I don’t know if you’ve heard about this. But if you haven’t, I’ll inform you. What do you make of the fact that the broadcast network spent grand total of 19 seconds on their evening newscast — 19 seconds — covering the lawsuits by the 43 Catholic organizations; what do you make of that?
 
WUERL: Well, it is puzzling because they are focusing so much attention on the pope’s butler. It seems to me that somehow they missed the boat. And they missed the story.
 
And that’s why it is so important that we have a moment like this.
 
WALLACE: You think it’s political bias on the part of the networks?
 
 […]

 WALLACE: Meanwhile, Mitt Romney came out this week for allowing federal funds to be used by low income parents to send their kids to any public school or even to some private school and parochial schools. You support that idea, don’t you?
 
WUERL: The idea that money should follow the child, we all pay the taxes. We are all paying taxes for education. Why doesn’t that money follow the parents of the kids?
 
For example, here, if you live in the District of Columbia, if you are very wealth or have a lot of support, you can send your child to a very exclusive private school. But if you live in this inner city, if you live in some of the poorest neighborhoods, you don’t get an option.
 
That’s why the Catholic Church is there, that’s why we have our schools in the inner city saying we’ll give you a chance to get a decent education and we’ll pay for it. But wouldn’t it be fair, wouldn’t be just, wouldn’t be really honest if every child a chance at a real, true, academically excellent education. And one way to do that is to let the parents have a choice.

Archbishop Wenski put the essence of the gigantic story that the mainstream media has steadfastly refesued to cover thusly:

“As Catholics, we help people not because they’re Catholic, but because we’re Catholic. And so our schools, our universities, our Catholic charities, organizations, our hospitals admit people regardless of their faith. What the government is saying to us is that then, we’re going to have to operate hospitals for Catholics only?”

What does the mainstream media scream in place of covering such a story from such a perspective?

Of course, American “journalists” are also pretty much okay if they attack American servicemen, too.  Those bastard troops should obviously all die for protecting the Great Satan America and for supporting Mitt Romney by 24 points over the mainstream media messiah Obama.

Planned Parenthood’s War On Baby Women: Planned Parenthood Kills Girls Just Because They’re Girls While They Claim Their Opponents Are ‘Anti-Woman’

May 31, 2012

There must be an awful lot of pressure on liberals; after all, they’ve descended far lower than whale turds sink and the hydrostatic pressure at the bottom of the ocean gets to 16,000 lbs per square inch.

I guess all that pressure on them is why they’re such rabid jerks.

Planned Parenthood takes plenty of government funding so it can turn around and give that money to the Democrats who give them the money so they can give it back to them in the form of campaign contributions and ideological ads.

Liberals tell me that my church can’t have a political voice because it is tax exempt.  That means my church doesn’t pay taxes, NOT THAT THEY GET HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN TAXPAYER MONEY.

As we just found out, liberal pro-Obama black churches get to be as activist as they damn well please given that Obama’s Attorney General is going out teaching them how to play with the law.  But those federal laws that keep tax-exempt organizations from politicking were really just intended for evangelical white Christians, anyway.  They certainly don’t apply to the New Black Panthers anymore in Obama’s “Never bring a lawsuit against a black” administration.

Anyway, Planned Parenthood – which murders girls just because they’re girls while screaming about conservatives’ “war on women” – is paying Obama back for giving them our money with a huge ad campaign.

LifeNews has the story on racist baby-black-kid-killing Planned Parenthood also being a little girl-killing organization.

Here’s the video:

Here’s the story:

Video: Planned Parenthood Encourages Woman to Get Sex-Selection Abortion
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 5/29/12 8:32 AM

The investigative pro-life group Live Action, which has released videos exposing the abuses at the Planned Parenthood abortion business across the country, has released a new video today showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, Texas encouraging a woman to get a sex-selection abortion.

The video shows a Planned Parenthood staffer encouraging the woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is the first in a new series titled “Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America,” that Live Action tells LifeNews will be exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of baby girls in the womb.

“I see that you’re saying that you want to terminate if it’s a girl, so are you just wanting to continue the pregnancy in the meantime?” a Planned Parenthood counselor named “Rebecca” offers the woman, who is purportedly still in her first trimester and cannot be certain about the gender.

“The abortion covers you up until 23 weeks,” explains Rebecca, “and usually at 5 months is usually (sic) when they detect, you know, whether or not it’s a boy or a girl.”

The woman asks, “Do you think I should go and just ask for an ultrasound and just not tell [the doctor] that I’m gonna terminate if it’s a girl, or…I just feel like there’s been some judgment for my…”

“To be honest with you, um, I would probably think so,” the Planned Parenthood staffer responds.

“But do you think I still just shouldn’t worry about telling them that I would be terminating if it’s a girl?” the pregnant patient repeats later.

“Right,” Planned Parenthood says. “I would.”

Live Action says the late-term abortion is offered for gender selection even though doctors agree that the later in term a doctor performs an abortion, the greater the risk of complications.

In the video (seen below), the Planned Parenthood staffer suggests that the woman get on Medicaid in order to pay for an ultrasound to determine the gender of her baby, even though she plans to use the knowledge for an elective abortion. The abortion facility staffer also tells the woman to “just continue and try again” for the desired gender after aborting a girl, and adds, “Good luck, and I hope that you do get your boy.”

Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, condemned Planned Parenthood for its willingness to facilitate sex-selection abortions.

“The search-and-destroy targeting of baby girls through prenatal testing and abortion is a pandemic that is spreading across the globe,” she said. “Research proves that sex-selective abortion has now come to America. The abortion industry, led by Planned Parenthood, is a willing participant.”

UPDATE: Planned Parenthood has responded to the video by essentially saying it will do abortions for any reason and adding that the staffer in the video violated unnamed policies and has since been fired from her position.

A few years ago, a national study showed the possibility that the practice of sex-selection abortions has made its way from Asia to the United States. Researchers Douglas Almond and Lena Edlund of the National Academy of Sciences say their analysis of the 2000 Census shows the odds prematurely increasing for Asian-American families from China, Korea and India to have a boy if they already have a girl child.

On Wednesday, Congress will debate the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions nationally.

“Planned Parenthood and their ruthless abortion-first mentality is the real ‘war on women’,” says Rose. “Sex-selective abortion is gender discrimination with lethal consequences for little girls.”

The complete, unedited video and transcript can be viewed at www.ProtectOurGirls.com, a hub of research and information on sex-selective abortions that Live Action has started.

Planned Parenthood has already attempted to run damage control regarding the video expose’. The abortion business worked its contacts in the media in recent weeks to try to head the potential probe and its results off at the pass. Weeks ago, Planned Parenthood went to the liberal Huffington Post to try to do damage control before the results of any possible Live Action investigation are made public. Planned Parenthood told the Huffington Post it may be facing another campaign from Live Action to expose its practices on how it would handle someone seeking a sex-selection abortion.

According to Planned Parenthood spokesperson Chloe Cooney, clinics in at least 11 states have reported two dozen or more “hoax visits” over the past several weeks, in which a woman walks into a clinic, claims to be pregnant and asks a particular pattern of provocative questions about sex-selective abortions, such as how soon she can find out the gender of the fetus, by what means and whether she can schedule an abortion if she’s having a girl.

While patient privacy laws prohibit Planned Parenthood from offering specific details about the visits and where they occurred, Cooney told The Huffington Post that the incidents are so unusual and so similar to each other that they have raised concerns among the organization’s executives that the visits are being recorded as part of a concerted anti-Planned Parenthood campaign.

“For years opponents of reproductive health and Planned Parenthood have engaged in secret videotaping tactics with fictitious patient scenarios and selective editing in an attempt to promote misinformation about Planned Parenthood and our services,” Cooney said. “As with the prior instances, we anticipate that once again this group, likely in coordination with a broad range of anti-abortion leaders, will soon launch a propaganda campaign with the goal of discrediting Planned Parenthood, and, ultimately, restricting women’s health.”

While Planned Parenthood has no proof that Live Action is behind the current series of encounters, Cooney said the group is the most coordinated in their operations and that the recent string of incidents “follows their pattern exactly.”

Planned Parenthood’s attempt here to head off the results before the Live Action releases them was not the first occasion on which it attempted to do so. Planned Parenthood representatives spoke with the Washington Post just a short time before Live Action released the sex trafficking videos showing Planned Parenthood staffers arranging abortions for victims. The abortion business also spoke with the Washington Post to put its spin on the breaking of the story of Komen for the Cure cutting its funding — causing a massive backlash and an eventual reversal in its decision.

A handful of states specifically prohibit sex-selection abortions — Arizona, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Illinois — but Planned Parenthood’s representative made it appear the abortion business would have no problem with doing abortions for those reasons. In fact, comments from Planned Parenthood’s representative make some wonder whether the abortion business would ever ask if a woman or couple wanted an abortion for that reason.

“Decisions about whether to choose adoption, end the pregnancy or to raise a child have to be left up to a woman, her family and her faith, with the counsel of her doctor,” Cooney said.

The Post also quoted one Asian-American activist who appeared to oppose legislation to ban sex-selection abortions.

“Abortion restrictions are a non-solution, and Planned Parenthood and others who have been providing necessary women’s health care for gazillions of years are not the perpetuators of the war on women.”

Later, Americans United for Life attorney Anna Franzonello, in a new column at the Washington Times, provided more evidence showing Planned Parenthood may be willing to tolerate such gender-based abortions.

So people who oppose killing baby girls are waging a “war on women” and the people who are actually KILLING the little girls are the champions of women.

As for Barack Obama, he just wants to kill babies, be they black, female, or ALREADY BORN AND SURVIVING OUTSIDE MOMMY-DEAREST’S WOMB.

Democrats are demon-possessed Nazi cockroaches who have murdered NINE American babies for every one Jew Hitler murdered during the Holocaust.

Update, June 3, 2012: For those who want to claim that this was an “isolated incident,” the experiment that found revealed Planned Parenthood’s hosility to women was repeated only to find the results confirmed:

China Condemns U.S. Gun Ownership As Human Rights Violation (Obama And Democrat Party Agree With COMMUNIST DICTATORS)

May 30, 2012

Let’s see, I’m a totalitarian communist thug dictator and I don’t want any “issues” affecting my ability to make the people abject slaves.  What is it I need to do?

Let me put on my Democrat Party thinking cap.  Hmmmm.  Oh, that’s right – TAKE AWAY THEIR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!!!

China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation
David Codrea
Gun Rights Examiner

A report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People’s Republic of China has included U.S. gun ownership among a list of human rights violations, Law Enforcement Examiner Jim Kouri reported yesterday. “The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011″ was published last Friday on the PRC’s Consulate General in New York website.

“The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens’ lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership,” the report claims. “The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world’ s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun.”

The conclusion that gun bans will result in enhanced protection of lives and personal security flies in the face of both the American and Chinese experience. Predictably, the report presents many of the same cherry-picked arguments used by “leading” U.S. and international “gun control” organizations that totally ignore the protective benefits of arms in private hands. And, as typical with advocates of a centralized monopoly of violence, Chinese-style genocide, which resulted in government-caused deaths of unknown tens of millions of defenseless human beings in the 20th Century, and the current brutal occupation and tyrannical suppression of Tibetan sovereignty, is left unacknowledged. Left unsaid is the inconvenient truth that rendering captive populations unable to resist makes such monstrous crimes against humanity not only possible, but inevitable.

Also left unquestioned: What is the motivation and agenda of any American who advocates Chicom-style citizen disarmament, knowing full-well its blood-drenched historic record?

The reason the founding fathers made gun ownership a primary part of their vision of government was because they hated tyranny and wanted to prevent government from becoming our lords and masters.

Democrats have spent the last fifty years doing precisely the opposite.

Truth Alert: Liberal Democrat MSNBC Host Says ‘I’m Uncomfortable Calling Fallen Military ‘Heroes”

May 29, 2012

The fact of the matter is that hating America’s soldiers is simply mainstream liberalism and mainstream Democrat Party ideology.  They know it doesn’t sell given how they politically paid for their rodent behavior when they flung their own feces at returning Vietnam War veterans, and they know that they can’t let that ugly, diseased cat of theirs out of their bag.

So liberal Democrats – the party of Bill Clinton and of his “loathing the military” – continue to hate our soldiers but with a cunning that keeps them from coming right out and saying it.

Well, most of the time, they do.

MSNBC - you know, the most pro-Obama and pro-Stalin network of all – just told us how they feel about the troops via their mouthpiece Chris Hayes:

CHRIS HAYES: Thinking today and observing Memorial Day, that’ll be happening tomorrow. Just talked with Lt. Col. Steve Burke, who was a casualty officer with the Marines and had to tell people [inaudible]. Um, I, I, ah, [Steve] Beck, sorry, um, I think it’s interesting because I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words “heroes.” Um, and, ah, ah, why do I feel so comfortable [sic] about the word “hero”? I feel comfortable, ah, uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism: hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I’m wrong about that.

Yeah, happy Memorial Day to you to, Chris.  You loathsome cockroach.

When I talk about liberalism as pseudo-intellectual snobbery, consider Chris Hayes my poster boy.  “…Rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war“????  Seriously????  “Yes, he’s a quivering pile of treasonous slime.  But doesn’t he sound smart being a quivering pile of treasonous slime?  And isn’t that the thing that really matters?”

This reminds me of how the media elite treat Obama: “he only sounds like such an abject fool because he’s just do darned brilliant.”

If you want to argue that this isn’t MSNBC’s position, let me put it this way.  Chris Hayes shouldn’t have even been allowed to finish that rambling paragraph before an executive showed up on the set to shut off his microphone and tell him, “You are so fired right now it’s beyond unreal.”

Instead, veterans groups actually have to demand an apology from this liberal turd.  Because incredibly he hasn’t offered one yet.  When it comes, it will be forced and completely contrived.

This is hardly anything new.  Recently, a liberal Democrat feminist named Naomi Wolf attacked a pop singer for having the audacity to honor our troops.

Prior to that, a liberal Massachusetts law professor decried care packages to our soldiers fighting for our freedom as “shameful,” stating:

I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings.”

Liberal universities across the nation have believed that kicking training programs for our next generation of military officers is “virtuous.”  Because hatred for the military is a good thing according to liberalism.

These attitudes are simply endemic and frankly pathological to the liberal mainstream media establishment.

The Democrat Party not only elected the first official draft dodger in the history of the republic, but in fact go on to say their draft dodger is one of the greatest presidents.

Then they nominated a pile of slime named John Kerry who disgraced American servicemen by fabricating atrocities that never happened (see more here) and throwing military decorations he never deserved in the first place over a fence like trash.

And then they elected Barack Obama who said of the republic and its Constitution:

“I think that we can say that the Constitution reflected the enormous blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day and that the framers had that same blind spot.”

Obama – after all of his damnable apology tours on foreign soil where he confessed that America was the wrongdoer and our enemies were more righteous than we were – finally issued something of an apology that actually needed to be given:

Many of those who survived brutal fights in the Southeast Asian jungle faced derision when they got home in the 1960s and 1970s as a result of public opposition to that Cold War battle.

Some 58,000 Americans died in the Vietnam War, compared to 4,000 who were killed in Iraq and nearly 2,000 who have been killed so far in Afghanistan.

“You were often blamed for a war you didn’t start, when you should have been commended for serving your country with valor,” Obama told a crowd gathered at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, which lists names of those who died in the conflict.

“You came home and sometimes were denigrated, when you should have been celebrated. It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. And that’s why here today we resolve that it will not happen again,” he said to applause.

WHICH FRICKING PARTY COMMITTED THAT NATIONAL SHAME, BARRY HUSSEIN???  Why don’t you take that one little extra step and say, “I, as a Democrat, am appalled by the abject disgrace of my own party toward our heroic warriors”???

Democrats turned the Tet Offensive – a complete military victory for the United States and an unmitigated military disaster for North Vietnam – into a complete political defeat for America.  For Democrats, the humiliating pullout in shame from Vietnam was their greatest victory.  It was from that slimepit that the modern Democrat Party was born.

And if Republicans had treated disease-carrying rats with the shame that Democrats treated our returning veterans during the Vietnam War, well, you can bet that Democrats would have demonized us for our cruelty to animals.  It wasn’t Republicans who spat in the faces of our troops.

If you don’t believe me, just do some research on the 1968 Democrat National Convention.  And then compare it to the Republican National Convention that same year.  One was a bunch of rabid cockroaches acting like rabid cockroaches; the other was a party that somehow managed to act like civilized human beings.  Guess which party fit which description.

Democrats learned a lesson that year: “If we state and act out our true beliefs, the American people will rightly reject us.  We have to lie about who we really are to grab the power we want.”

That model continues to this day.  It’s precisely the model that Obama himself – who never saw himself as an “American” until he realized that pretending to be “American” was the only way to grab the power he wanted to “fundamentally transform” America – pursued.

This is why just a brief exposure to the American flag tends to create Republicans:

Shock Study: U.S. Flag Only Boosts GOP
By Paul Bedard
Posted: July 20, 2011

Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior even though most don’t believe it will impact their politics, according to a new two-year study just published in the scholarly Psychological Science.

What’s more, according to three authors from the University Chicago, Cornell University and Hebrew University, the impact had staying power.

“A single exposure to an American flag resulted in a significant increase in participants’ Republican voting intentions, voting behavior, political beliefs, and implicit and explicit attitudes, with some effects lasting 8 months,” the study found. “These results constitute the first evidence that nonconscious priming effects from exposure to a national flag can bias the citizenry toward one political party and can have considerable durability.”

This is why going to a July 4th/Independence Day parade makes people Republican:

Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing
By Paul Bedard
June 30, 2011

Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

“Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard.

Let’s also not forget how Democrats ripped President Bush for trying to do something about Iran’s nuclear program back in 2007 (see also here).  Let’s not forget that Iran will get nuclear weapons BECAUSE DEMOCRATS PREVENTED ANY EFFORT TO STOP THEM FROM GETTING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

If the mainstream media were anything other than leftwing propagandists, they would have ripped Obama as a man who was more “Bush” than Bush ever was (see also here).  A few - as in a very, VERY few – liberals have openly acknowledged that Obama has been a bigger trampler of civil liberties than Bush EVER was.  Including, by the way, ordering the execution of American citizens by Predator drone attack.  The vast remainder of liberals are nothing more than utter hypocrites who only decry Republicans because they have no morality but only ideology.

The hostility of Democrats to the military that has defended this nation is merely one of the reasons why “Democrat” stands for “Demonic Bureaucrat.”

Statistics About Vile Labor Unions That The Left Doesn’t Want You To Know About

May 28, 2012

Wherever unions have gone industries have died.  As much as the left complains about companies relocating offshore, unions and their vile tactics have been more responsible for the movement of US jobs offshore than anything or anyone else.

Whole industries have abandoned America because that was the only way they could survive and compete given that they were otherwise crippled with American labor unions.  But it’s those industries that can’t be shipped overseas – like teaching our kids – that the unions are at their most dangerous to America.  They have a stranglehold on public education even as they have proven that they could frankly care less about teaching our kids, our next generation of workers.

Check out these stats.  I put the ones I found most egregious in red font:

It’s kind of funny – in an ironic, pathetic sort of way – how unions constantly demagogue many of the things that they are in fact the worst offenders at committing, isn’t it?  Unions started out as racist organizations that were geared around keeping black and minority workers out:

Economist Ray Marshall, although a prounion secretary of labor under President Jimmy Carter, made his academic reputation by documenting how unions excluded blacks from membership in the 1930s and 1940s. Marshall also wrote of incidents in which union members assaulted black workers hired to replace them during strikes. During the 1911 strike against the Illinois Central, noted Marshall, whites killed two black strikebreakers and wounded three others at McComb, Mississippi. He also noted that white strikers killed ten black firemen in 1911 because the New Orleans and Texas Pacific Railroad had granted them equal seniority. Not surprisingly, therefore, black leader Booker T. Washington opposed unions all his life, and W. E. B. DuBois called unions the greatest enemy of the black working class. Another interesting fact: the “union label” was started in the 1880s to proclaim that a product was made by white rather than yellow (Chinese) hands.

And nothing’s changed.  And they aren’t much better toward women, are they?

Meanwhile, these hypocrites have a massive war chest of money stockpiled from previous generations that they give almost entirely to Democrats while they simultaneously whine about corporations being allowed to do the same thing that THEY’VE been doing for decades.

As bad as these statistics are, the worst ones of all aren’t included.  Start searching for “unfunded liabilities” particularly of unionized “public sector employees,” and you’ll find a black hole of debt that America will never be able to crawl its way out of.  California alone has a $500 billion unfunded pension bomb waiting to explode:

California’s $500-billion pension time bomb
April 06, 2010|By David Crane

The staggering amount of unfunded debt stands to crowd out funding for many popular programs. Reform will take something sadly lacking in the Legislature: political courage.

The state of California’s real unfunded pension debt clocks in at more than $500 billion, nearly eight times greater than officially reported.

That’s the finding from a study released Monday by Stanford University’s public policy program, confirming a recent report with similar, stunning findings from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago.

Another Democrat blue state, Illinois, is in even worse shape on a per capita basis: with one-third the population of fellow Democrat blue state California, Illinois has nearly half the unfunded union pension liabilities that California does ($210 billion).

Unlike Obama’s God damn America, which can add more zeros to the money supply in the Federal Reserve computers to “make” more money, states have to actually pay their debts.  Which really sucks for them, given the way the unions have sucked the states dry.

And of course labor unions scream at every state or federal budget cut because they are utterly dependent on taxpayer handouts for survival.

So union workers are only less than 7% of the private American workforce, but they’re a massive pain in America’s collective ass.

With Naked Obama Regime Propaganda All Around, America Under Obama Has Now Seen The 30 Worst Months Of Unemployment In 25 Years

May 26, 2012

What’s worse: when a government fails its people or when a government that is failing its people resorts to propaganda to hide the truth?

Under Obama: 30 Worst Months of Employment in the Past 25 Years
8:05 AM, May 23, 2012 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

The federal government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes monthly tallies for the employment-population ratio.  That stat shows something rather straightforward:  Among those who are living in America and are free to pursue employment, what percentage are employed?  (The bureau excludes those who are under 16 years old, are active-duty military, or are — in the bureau’s own words — “inmates of institutions (for example, penal and mental facilities, homes for the aged),” from its tallies.)

Over the past quarter of a century (a total of 300 months), dating back to May 1987 and the Reagan administration, here are the 30 worst months (that is, the bottom 10 percent) for the employment-population ratio, along with the president who happened to be in office at that particular time (scroll down to the see the list):

1. (tie) July 2011, 58.2 percent, President Barack Obama
1. (tie) June 2011, 58.2 percent, Obama
1. (tie) November 2010, 58.2 percent, Obama
1. (tie) December 2009, 58.2 percent, Obama
5. (tie) August 2011, 58.3 percent, Obama
5. (tie) December 2010, 58.3 percent, Obama
5. (tie) October 2010, 58.3 percent, Obama
8. (tie) April 2012, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) October 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) September 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) May 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) April 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) February 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
8. (tie) January 2011, 58.4 percent, Obama
15. (tie) March 2012, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) January 2012, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) December 2011, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) November 2011, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) March 2011, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) September 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) August 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) July 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) June 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) March 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) February 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) January 2010, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) November 2009, 58.5 percent, Obama
15. (tie) October 2009, 58.5 percent, Obama
29. February 2012, 58.6 percent, Obama
30. (tie) May 2010, 58.7 percent, Obama
30. (tie) April 2010, 58.7 percent, Obama
30. (tie) September 2009, 58.7 percent, Obama

Interestingly, the 30 (or 32, including ties) worst months for employment in the past 25 years have all come after the most recent recession ended, in June 2009. In other words, they’ve all come during the Obama “recovery.”

What’s more, under every other president during the past 25 years (spanning from the later stages of the Reagan presidency through the entire George W. Bush presidency), the employment-population ratio was always over 60 percent — every single month, for 260 consecutive months. In vivid contrast, with the exception of the month in which he took office (January 2009) and his first full month in office (February 2009), the employment-population ratio under Obama has always been under 60 percent — every single month, for 38 consecutive months. (For 32 consecutive months — from September 2009 to the present day — it’s been under 59 percent.)

In fact, the worst non-Obama month in the past 25 years was December 2008, when the employment-population ratio was 61.0 percent under George W. Bush. Comparatively, Obama’s best month to date (not counting January 2009, when he entered midstream) was his first, February 2009, when the employment-population ratio was 60.3 percent. In other words, over the past 25 years, the worst month under any other president has beaten the best month under Obama.

Again, what’s worse, employment numbers perennially in the toilet or government propaganda regarding said employment numbers being perennially in the toilet?

I’ll let you decide, but they’re both going on at the same time under the “hope and change” administration of Barry Hussein:

Inital Claims Soar Again, Ninth Consecutive Miss To Expectations In A Row: BLS Back To Propaganda School
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/19/2012 08:42 -0400

There are those who thought last week’s massive Initial claims miss was the last one. They were wrong. Instead of printing at the expected 370K, an improvement from last week’s already big miss of 380K, this week came at a whopping 386K, the worst standalone print in 4 months. Well, until last week’s revision that is: instead of the 380K print that stunned everyone, last week’s number has now been revised to a massive 388K. Why? So that mainstream media can declare, with a straight face, that this week saw the number of initial claims decline! Here is the reality: last week’s expectation was for a print of 355K. Instead we got a number of 380K. Now this number is being revised to 388K, and is the biggest initial expectation to revision miss since early 2011. Needless to say, this means two things: 1) the transitory bump associated with record warm weather, which was nothing but pulling from the future, is now over, and 2) the April NFP print will be another disaster, which is just as the Fed wants it – after all it is time to start setting the stage for the NEW QE (and certainly not QE3 which is already in place as Jeff Gundlach was so kind to explain) now that Obama is the margin hiker in chief.

The chart below shows the difference between the actual print (revised) and the expectation survey: 9 straight misses in a row.

For those not on the propaganda hopium dole, this is how YTD revisions look like, courtesy of John Lohman:

Tyler Durden wrote this back in mid-April.  If I may draw your attention to the very last chart immediately above, Eric Bolling reported yesterday that the jobless numbers have now been revised upward – meaning the initial report was that employment numbers were better than they actually were – for twenty consecutive weeks in a row. 

Obama knows that once the report comes out, the market reacts based on that initial report and few ever bother to pay attention about the revision that comes out later.  It’s a great way to sell lies. 

If I flip a coin and come up with heads twenty times in a row, you’d better look at my coin before we make a bet on the next coin toss when I call “heads” again.

But it’s still worse than that: because as New York Times reporter Louise Story pointed out May 26, 63 of the last 64 Department of Labor weekly jobless reports have now revised the jobless numbers HIGHER.  I couldn’t find her work on that, but here’s an article from a few weeks earlier that describes the same situation: 

Lies, Damned Lies and Government Jobs Data (oringinal article available here)

As analysts dig into the government jobs numbers, questions are being raised about the reliability of the data. 59 out of the last 60 weeks, the weekly jobless numbers have been revised after the fact to a higher number. The unemployment rate has been questioned too because the number doesn’t include people who stopped looking for work, but still want a job.

By Elizabeth MacDonald
Published May 02, 2012

There is lots of talk about the “fiscal cliff” the U.S. faces at year end, as stimulus and tax cuts go away.

So the last thing the government needs now is market distrust in its job numbers. But, as analysts dig into the government job numbers, questions are increasingly being raised about the reliability of the data, from questionable revisions in the weekly jobless numbers to the odd changes in unemployment rates.

For 59 out of the last 60 weeks, the weekly jobless numbers have been revised, after the fact, always in the same direction: higher. That’s unheard of.

Those revisions higher make the present week’s unemployment number look better in comparison, more so since the markets often treat the prior week’s revision as an afterthought.

This is naked, glaring propaganda.  But it’s not being very widely reported, is it?

This is the worst government for propaganda since Hitler and Stalin.  It’s not just that the Obama regime continually lies; it is that a Joseph Goebbels-style media eagerly swallows each new lie with enthusiasm.

Obama Administration Claims Blue Collar Workers And Business Leaders Alike Are Disqualified To Be President

May 25, 2012

“Your job as President is to promote the common good — that doesn’t mean the private equity guys are bad guys. They’re not. But that no more qualifies you to be President than being a plumber,” Mr. Biden joked to laughter. “And by the way, there are a lot of awful smart plumbers.” — Joe Biden

A lot of “smart plumbers” who aren’t really qualified to be president, of course.

Do you know what clearly DOES qualify you to be president?

Being a Marxist community agitator and then going into the State Senate where you continually vote “present.”  Oh, and then spending 144 days as a U.S. Senator before breaking your nationally-televised promise NOT to run for president:

MR. RUSSERT: Well, nine months ago, you were on this program and I asked you about running for president. And let’s watch and come back and talk about it.

(Videotape, January 22, 2006):

MR. RUSSERT: When we talked back in November of ‘04, after your election, I said, “There’s been enormous speculation about your political future. Will you serve your full six-year term as a United States senator from Illinois?” Obama: “Absolutely.”

SEN. OBAMA: I will serve out my full six-year term. You know, Tim, if you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start looking for new ways of saying things, but my thinking has not changed.

MR. RUSSERT: But, but—so you will not run for president or vice president in 2008?

SEN. OBAMA: I will not.

(End videotape)

Only documented-lying Marxists need apply for the job of president, say Democrats.

At the very least we’re talking about an elitist political class of liberal bureaucrats who believe that only career bureaucrats have any business ruling and reigning from high office.

Being somebody who knows how the economy works inside and out by buying and developing hundreds of businesses, being somebody who has made payrolls, being somebody who has created budgets and business plans and product and growth strategies???  Nope.  A lifetime of that sort of experience isn’t worth a single hour of being a radical Marxist community organizer.

What’s funny is that the same damn Joe Biden who says that plumbers and private equity firm CEOs aren’t qualified to be president also pretty damn clearly stated that the guy who is now president isn’t qualified to be president.

The really good thing about being a Democrat president?

Once you get out of office you can hang with major porn starlets and find yourself with lots more women wearing blue dresses:

Slick Willie invited them over:

In a giggly interview with TMZ, the adult films stars photographed with Bill Clinton at a fundraising gala in Monaco on Wednesday explained how they met the former president.

“He kind of was looking over at us every once in awhile. And we’re huge, psycho fans of Bill. We just think he’s really cute,” porn star Brooklyn Lee said. “So we end up wandering by. And we were going to approach him to take a picture and his Secret Service sort of brushed us away. And as we were walking away, Bill actually had the Secret Service guy call us back, to come hang out.”

Of course, in Bill Clinton’s defense: absolutely NOBODY thinks that Bill Clinton is anything other than fully qualified to hang out with porn stars.  And in fact FAR more qualified than any mere plumber or business CEO.

And, of course, in spite of Bill Clinton’s lengthy personal history of sexual shennanigans, he still knows full well that the amateur, incompetent fool who is now disgracing the White House is most definitely NOT qualified to be president.

Mind you, if the American people have enough of an instinct of self-preservation left in them to vote this turd out of office, we’ll probably be seeing “the first gay president” posing with quite a few porn stars of his own:

Lying Obama Claims He Didn’t Increase Spending As USA Today Points Out Real Obama Deficits Actually $5.6 Trillion A Year

May 25, 2012

Every time I’ve mentioned the massive Obama stimulus on this blog – and just use my search engine to look up “stimulus” for the proof that I’ve said it over and over and over again – I have pointed out that the cost WASN’T “$800 billion”; the actual cost of Obama’s stimulus was – according to the CBO – actually $3.27 TRILLION:

All of the major news outlets are reporting that the stimulus bill voted out of conference committee last night has a meager $789 billion price tag. This number is pure fantasy. No one believes that the increased funding for programs the left loves like Head Start, Medicaid, COBRA, and the Earned Income Tax Credit is in any way temporary. No Congress under control of the left will ever cut funding for these programs. So what is the true cost of the stimulus if these spending increases are made permanent?

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) asked the Congressional Budget Office to estimate the impact of permanently extending the 20 most popular provisions of the stimulus bill. What did the CBO find? As you can see from the table below [visit link], the true 10 year cost of the stimulus bill $2.527 trillion in in spending with another $744 billion cost in debt servicing. Total bill for the Generational Theft Act: $3.27 trillion.

The actual cost of the Obama stimulus was simply completely unreported by the mainstream media which is now merely the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.  The numbers reported were pure lies.

So, as I’ve said over and over and over again, the “real” cost of the Obama stimulus was actually 308.75% higher than it was deceitfully sold to the American people as costing.

And now we see that that was a common theme of the Obama deception: because we find that the real Obama deficit wasn’t $1.3 trillion; no, it was actually $5.6 trillion.  Which is, for the record, 330.77% higher than what we were told.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a picture of the the contrast between Obama’s bullcrap and actual reality:

From USA Today:

Real federal deficit dwarfs official tally
By Dennis Cauchon, USA TODAY

The typical American household would have paid nearly all of its income in taxes last year to balance the budget if the government used standard accounting rules to compute the deficit, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Under those accounting practices, the government ran red ink last year equal to $42,054 per household — nearly four times the official number reported under unique rules set by Congress.

A U.S. household’s median income is $49,445, the Census reports.

The big difference between the official deficit and standard accounting: Congress exempts itself from including the cost of promised retirement benefits. Yet companies, states and local governments must include retirement commitments in financial statements, as required by federal law and private boards that set accounting rules.

The deficit was $5 trillion last year under those rules. The official number was $1.3 trillion. Liabilities for Social Security, Medicare and other retirement programs rose by $3.7 trillion in 2011, according to government actuaries, but the amount was not registered on the government’s books.

Deficits are a major issue in this year’s presidential campaign, but USA TODAY has calculated federal finances under accounting rules since 2004 and found no correlation between fluctuations in the deficit and which party ran Congress or the White House.

Key findings:

•Social Security had the biggest financial slide. The government would need $22.2 trillion today, set aside and earning interest, to cover benefits promised to current workers and retirees beyond what taxes will cover. That’s $9.5 trillion more than was needed in 2004.

•Deficits from 2004 to 2011 would be six times the official total of $5.6 trillion reported.

•Federal debt and retiree commitments equal $561,254 per household. By contrast, an average household owes a combined $116,057 for mortgages, car loans and other debts.

“By law, the federal government can’t tell the truth,” says accountant Sheila Weinberg of the Chicago-based Institute for Truth in Accounting.

Jim Horney, a former Senate budget staff expert now at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, says retirement programs should not count as part of the deficit because, unlike a business, Congress can change what it owes by cutting benefits or lifting taxes.

“It’s not easy, but it can be done. Retirement programs are not legal obligations,” he says.

In California, Democrat Governor Jerry Brown is talking about the “crisis” of the official state deficit of billion.  That’s not even CLOSE to the truth; the actual deficit of just the Democrat-passed unfunded pension liabilities for their union allies is $500 billion ALL BY ITSELF.

From the Los Angeles Times:

California’s $500-billion pension time bomb
April 06, 2010|By David Crane

The state of California’s real unfunded pension debt clocks in at more than $500 billion, nearly eight times greater than officially reported.

That’s the finding from a study released Monday by Stanford University’s public policy program, confirming a recent report with similar, stunning findings from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago.

It’s great if you’re in a government employee union and give all your campaign contributions to Democrats to keep the pork coming.  It sucks if you’re the vast majority of Californians.  Meanwhile, these same California voters keep falling for the same trick, namely, Democrats keep promising that they’ll redistribute the wealth of others and give it to people who vote Democrat.

Until California collapses under the weight of Democrat lies and burns in hell.

There’s only one term to describe this sheer lunatic deception: demon possessed.  The Democrat Party today is the party of hell.  One day soon Democrats will worship the Antichrist who will promise the big government Utopia of their dreams and take his mark and ultimately end up in the eternal fire that they truly deserve.

As bad as California looks, the actual debt picture of the United States as a country makes that $500 billion in uncounted unfunded liabilities to pro-Democrat labor unions look like nothin’.

Understand, this article was written in August 2011 when the national debt was “only” $14 trillion.  It’s going to be $16 trillion by the end of the year.

Look at the actual debt faced by the United States.  You’re on the hook for this:

A National Debt Of $14 Trillion? Try $211 Trillion
by NPR Staff
August 6, 2011

When Standard & Poor’s reduced the nation’s credit rating from AAA to AA-plus, the United States suffered the first downgrade to its credit rating ever. S&P took this action despite the plan Congress passed this past week to raise the debt limit.

The downgrade, S&P said, “reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government’s medium-term debt dynamics.”

It’s those medium- and long-term debt problems that also worry economics professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, who served as a senior economist on President Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers. He says the national debt, which the U.S. Treasury has accounted at about $14 trillion, is just the tip of the iceberg.

“We have all these unofficial debts that are massive compared to the official debt,” Kotlikoff tells David Greene, guest host of weekends on All Things Considered. “We’re focused just on the official debt, so we’re trying to balance the wrong books.”

Kotlikoff explains that America’s “unofficial” payment obligations — like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits — jack up the debt figure substantially.

“If you add up all the promises that have been made for spending obligations, including defense expenditures, and you subtract all the taxes that we expect to collect, the difference is $211 trillion. That’s the fiscal gap,” he says. “That’s our true indebtedness.” […]

There is no possible way in hell we can pay these debts.  And all we’re doing now is having the Federal Reserve add zeros to the money supply which is now a fantasy that only exists in computers.  That’s what “quantitative easing” is: we’ve done it twice now under Obama, and we’re going to be doing it again soon.

Quantitative easing is a hidden tax; the government inflates the currency which deflates the value of the existing dollars.  The dollars systematically become worth less and we get inflation – which is actually running out of control (see here, here, here, here and – for the antidote – here).

For the record, Obama’s massive regulations which have largely been passed by executive decree, are another massive form of hidden taxation.  To the tune of $1.75 trillion taken out of the private economy in forced compliance costs every single year.

Democrats love to blame Republicans for our debt.  They are, as I have said before, demon-possessed liars.  The programs that the Democrat Party rammed down our forcibly collectivist throats such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are responsible for 99-plus percent of our massive unsustainable unpayable debt that will necessarily implode America.

I wrote about this earlier this year: it didn’t have to be this way: there were superior alternatives to both Social Security AND Medicare that were ignored and falsely demonized.

If you want to put it in honest terms, the agreement the Democrats – the party of baby genocide – was this: “You vote for us, and we’ll give you benefits that we’ll sell the next generation into slavery to pay for.”  And Democrats said, “Good!  That’s what we want!”

Republicans can’t end Social Security or Medicare now; millions of Americans (including my own parents) count on these programs – even as bad as they are –  for survival.  Democrats made sure that there were no rivals and no possible alternatives.  But we were right all along that it was a terrible program for America and we were right all along pointing out that there were FAR better alternatives.

If that isn’t bad enough, Democrats as we speak are trying to ensure that these programs – beginning with Medicare – go bankrupt.  Because the Republicans who said these programs were a mistake to begin with are doing their best to try to sustain them, while Democrats are refusing to allow ANY of the fixes that will prevent them from GOING BANKRUPT NO LATER THAN 2017.  Democrats are demanding that we keep these programs exactly as they are: and “exactly as they are” equals CATASTROPHIC BANKRUPTCY and collapse.

And just to help shove Medicare into the grave, Democrats stole $500 billion from Medicare funding and then double-counted it.  As if you can create two dollars by tearing a dollar bill in half.

And fot further go on with the sheer deceit of the Democrat Party, we now know that ObamaCare was sold on such a whopping load of lies it is beyond unreal – such as a SEVENTEEN TRILLION DOLLAR FUNDING GAP between the ocean of lies and the actual reality.

As sick and as frankly terrifying the implications of all the above are, can I end on a hilarious note?

Barack Obama, the man who demonized George Bush for raising the debt by four trillion dollars over eight years only to himself increase the debt by SIX TRILLION IN ONLY FOUR YEARS, is now demonically claiming that his spending spree never really happened:

“And by the way, we’re going to pay down our debt in a way that is balanced and responsible.  I inherited a trillion dollar deficit; I signed $2 trillion in spending cuts.  My opponents won’t admit it because it runs contrary to, I guess, the only argument they have — but since I’ve been President, federal spending has actually risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years.  (Applause.)  It usually takes a Democrat to fix these problems after they have run up the tab.”  (Applause.) — Barack Obama, May 24, 2012

In order to justify this demonic lie, Obama assumes a baseline that simply blames George Bush for all 2009 debt – INCLUDING OBAMA’S MASSIVE $3.27 TRILLION STIMULUS THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH GEORGE BUSH AND WHICH NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR.  Obama’s “baseline” further assumed that emergency programs such as the TARP – which Obama himself approved of and voted for – was now something that America had to repeat every single year in perpetuity as opposed to being what it was (a one-time emergency event).  And so the following year when Obama didn’t spend another $700 billion in TARP, he was actually SAVING money.  Oh, and to complete the point about how ridiculous this is, OBAMA ASKED FOR AND RECEIVED HALF THE $700 billion TARP funds.  So Obama voted for it, Obama asked for it, and Obama spent it.  But it’s Bush’s fault and so blame Bush.

Oh, and Obama actually supermassively expanded his $350 billion in TARP funds to at least $16 TRILLION.  And put $23.7 trillion in taxpayer money at risk according to the TARP inspector general.  Obama does it.  Blames Bush for it.

Obama is artificially and demonically jacking up the “baseline” and then pointing to a lie to say “I’m only increasing spending by a little tiny bit.”  He uses a bogus contrived statistic to claim he’s the lowest-spending president in sixty years when the actual reality is that he’s the highest-spending president in the history of the entire human race.

Here’s the reality of Obama’s spending:

The only way you can explain Obama telling these “big lies” or Democrats actually believing them comes down to one thing: demon possession.

CBO Warns ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Looms If Bush Tax Cuts Aren’t Continued And Automatic Cuts Gutting Defense Aren’t DIScontinued (Democrats On Wrong Side Of BOTH Issues)

May 24, 2012

Bush tax cuts good, Democrats bad.  And the automatic cuts that will gut defense bad, Democrats trying to prevent their suspension worse.  That according to the CBO.

The CBO says if the Bush tax cuts aren’t extended – i.e., Bush was right, Democrats and Obama were wrong – and if the automatic cuts that resulted from the last budget impasse aren’t suspended, the U.S. economy will go down the toilet starting January 1st of next year.

The funny thing – at least the funny thing if you can see humor in the Democrat Party destroying America – is that Democrats are on the wrong side of both of these issues.  We all know the Democrat Party’s histrionics over the Bush tax cuts from the day Bush cut taxes in 2003; but you should also know that Obama is not only in favor of the automatic cuts that the CBO is warning are a bad thing, but Obama has in fact promised to veto any bill that would overturn them.  And this in spite of the fact that Obama’s own Secretary of Defense has stated that the cuts Obama is demanding would utterly gut the US military and take America back to pre-World War II levels when we were weak and ripe for a devastating attack.

House Republicans are trying to avert the disaster that both the CBO and Secretary of Defense Panetta have warned us about.  Just as they’re trying to keep the Bush tax cuts in place for every single American and for the overall American economy.

Basically, the CBO is warning you that if Democrats get power in 2012, we’re all pretty much screwed:

‘Fiscal Cliff’ Looms for U.S. Economy, CBO Warns

Allowing Bush-era tax cuts to expire coupled with a scheduled round of automatic spending cuts would probably throw the U.S. economy into a tailspin. That’s the dire warning from a new Congressional Budget Office report that says the economy would contract by 1.3 percent in the first half 2013, pushing off a ”fiscal cliff” on Jan. 1.

That’s when a higher tax rate would kick in if the Bush-era tax cuts aren’t extended and more than $100 billion in automatic cuts in domestic spending for agencies such as the Pentagon are kept in place.

“Simply extending all of our current tax and spending policies will produce unsustainable deficits and debt, which will also send the economy into decline,” Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., the top Democrat on the Budget Committee, told the Associated Press. “We need to act and we must do so in a balanced way.”

Though lawmakers are expected to head off a shift in the government’s financial situation later this year or in early 2013, the CBO says if nothing is done it would likely push the US economy into recession and wring hundreds of billions of dollars from the budget deficit. That would “represent an additional drag on the weak economic expansion,” the CBO says.

The CBO is a nonpartisan agency of Congress that produces economic analysis and estimates of the cost of legislation.

Last summer’s debt and budget agreement imposed almost $1 trillion in cuts to agency budgets over the coming decade and required automatic cuts of another $1 trillion or so.

The CBO study comes as Congress is gridlocked over spending and taxes in advance of the fall elections. The White House and top Democrats are refusing to act on the expiring tax cuts and automatic spending cuts unless Republicans show greater flexibility on raising taxes.

If no deal is reached, the CBO projects that the economy would shrink by 1.3 percent in the first half of 2013, which would meet the definition of a recession, which is when the economy shrinks for two consecutive quarters.

“Such a contraction in output in the first half of 2013 would probably be judged to be a recession,” CBO said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The “Bush tax cuts” are named after BUSH for good reason.  He was the one who got them through with the help of Republicans against bitter Democrat opposition.  Those tax cuts helped get America out of one hell of a hell-hole as a result of the Clinton DotCom bust and the 9/11 attacks that were likewise principally the fault of Bill Clinton.  In the DotCom bubble collapse, America lost over $7.1 TRILLION in wealth that was just vaporized; and the Nasdaq valuation saw 78% of its portfolio wiped out as a result of a giant recession that Bill Clinton handed to George Bush.  And the 9/11 attack was the result of Clinton’s gutting both the military and the intelligence budgets leaving America both weak and blind.  And after the humiliating “Blackhawk Down” retreat from Somalia, it was inevitable that under Bill Clinton al Qaeda “realized that the American soldier was just a paper tiger” as a terrorist named Osama bin Laden said.  Al Qaeda attacked America because Bill Clinton opened the door for them to attack America.

Contrary to what the Democrats have always wrongly believed, tax rate cuts have ALWAYS increased U.S. tax revenues every single time we have ever cut our tax rates.  It worked when Calvin Coolidge did it; it worked when John F. Kennedy did it; it worked when Ronald Reagan did it; and yes, it worked when George W. Bush did it.

When you allow the American people to keep more of what they earned, they simply make better decisions that improve their own lives and the overall health of the economy far more than when the government taxes and redistributes.  Everybody understands that middle class Americans with more purchasing power is a good thing; but it is equally true that when wealthier Americans are allowed to invest and be rewarded for their investment risks, the net result is economic growth and job growth for everybody.

Mayor Cory Booker – a prominent Democrat and Obama ally – said this of the unrelenting attack on private equity in general and Bain Capital in particular:

“As far as that stuff, I have to just say from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity. To me, it’s just this–we’re getting to a ridiculous point in America, especially that I know. I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, it ain’t–they’ve done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses, And this, to me, I’m very uncomfortable with.“

Booker is openly acknowledging that private equity is a good thing; that it has an enormous net benefit for cities and for states and for the nation.  As do a growing list of Democrats, from Gov. Ed Rendell to Harold Ford to Obama auto czar Steven Rattner to Gov. Deval Patrick to several prominent Democrat US Senators.

Bain Capital points out the fact that:

Despite political attacks that emphasize the few companies that have struggled, the facts are that during Bain Capital’s ownership, revenues grew in 80 percent of the more than 350 companies in which we have invested.

Eight out of ten times Mitt Romney stepped up to the plate he hit a home run and grew the businesses he rescued from bankruptcy.  But Obama deceitfully tries to only allow discussion of the two out of ten times that he didn’t.

And then you further find out the sheer duplicity that is Barack Obama: the man who has demonized private equity is at the same time gobbling up MORE MONEY from these firms than Mitt Romney!!!!  And that is primarily because of another profound act of cynical Obama dishonesty: because in blatant contradiction to his promise to reign in lobbyists and special interest pacs, Obama has in fact opened the floodgates to both.

Barack Obama has attended FIVE TIMES more fundraisers THAN THE PREVIOUS FIVE PRESIDENTS COMBINED.  And a lot of corrupt investors are realizing that the most corrupt money-grubbing whore that has ever infested the White House has opened the doors to crony capitalist boondoggles in which you give Obama a few thousand dollars in campaign contributions and rake in millions or even HUNDREDS of millions of dollars in taxpayer money for the next soon-to-be-bankrupt-boondoggle

EIGHTY PERCENT of green energy loans somehow ended up in the pockets of OBAMA DONORSHere’s a list of who got money.  It is utterly bankrupt.  You can’t find this level of corruption in the entire history of the republic.

It’s implicit from the CBO report: Democrats are the problem and Republicans are the solution to preventing America from going over the “fiscal cliff” that Obama and the Democrats have in store for America.

North Carolina Public School Teacher Screams At Student That It’s A CRIME To Say Anything Critical About Obama

May 23, 2012

I’ve got an aunt (by marriage, thank God) who once got outraged during a family dinner that anybody would dare criticize the president when Bill Clinton was in office.

Then George Bush became president, and the very same woman who had angrily decried anybody who would disrespect America by criticizing the President of the United States routinely – by her very own self-righteous and wildly hypocritical standard – disrespected America throughout the eight years that George W. Bush was president.  The very same woman who would absolutely not tolerate the presidency being disrespected when a Democrat was president was incredibly disrespectful of the presidency when a Republican was president.

I think the very same thing is going on in the vile little brain of North Carolina teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely.

Hypocrisy is the quintessential defining quality of liberalism.  One cannot be a liberal without being a hypocrite.  So this kind of double-think is nothing new.

But when it is a public school teacher who is ostensibly not paid to rabidly defend Democrat presidents, it’s not just a shame and this teacher shouldn’t just be fired; it ought to be a serious federal crime and this teacher should be in jail:

NC Teacher Screams at Student: It’s Criminal to Criticize Obama
by Ben Shapiro May 20, 2012 

A YouTube video uploaded on Monday afternoon apparently shows a schoolteacher from the Rowan-Salisbury school district in North Carolina informing a student that failing to be respectful of President Obama is a criminal offense. Breitbart News has uncovered that the student is a high school junior, and that the teacher is apparently one Tanya Dixon-Neely.

The video shows a classroom discussion about the Washington Post hit piece about Mitt Romney bullying a kid some five decades ago. One student says, “Didn’t Obama bully someone though?” The teacher says: “Not to my knowledge.” The student then cites the fact that Obama, in Dreams from My Father, admits to shoving a little girl. “Stop, no, because there is no comparison,” screams the teacher. Romney is “running for president. Obama is the president.”

 The student responds that both are “just men.”

 The teacher yells — literally yells — that Obama is “due the respect that every other president is due … Listen,” she continues, “let me tell you something, you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom.” She yells over the student repeatedly, and yells at him that it’s disrespect for him to even debate about Romney and Obama.

 The student says that he can say what he wants.

 “Not about him, you won’t,” says the teacher.

 The teacher then tells the student – wrongly – that it is a criminal offense to say bad things about a president. “Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush? Do you realize you are not supposed to slander the president?”

 The student says that it would violate First Amendment rights to jail someone for such sentiments. “You would have to say some pretty f’d up crap about him to be arrested,” says the student. “They cannot take away your right to have your opinion … They can’t take that away unless you threaten the president.”

 Clearly, the student should be teaching the class, and the teacher should be reading the Constitution more often.

 The school district classified the exchange – which is obviously just another case of a pro-Obama teacher shoveling her views down students’ throats – a “learning experience.” It isn’t. It’s political intimidation, and it’s just another example of how the American public school system has become an indoctrination tool for the left. This teacher should be suspended or fired forthwith, if only for incompetence.

UPDATE: Breitbart News has received information that the YouTube video was shot by a friend of the bullied student. According to our source, the student had asked his friend to record the discussion to “prove to his parents what he has been trying to tell them for some time. The teacher in this video has a long history of pushing a liberal agenda, by shouting down students. She is very intolerant of other points of view that she does not share. The atmosphere at this school is not very conducive to opposing views.”

The source continues, “The student’s parents have since taken him out of school and had him registered at another nearby school.”

The teacher was suspended WITH PAY.  Just what does she have to do to get FIRED????

This use of the public schools as indoctrination centers for liberalism is nothing new under this fascist administration.  See this article that posts a couple of the videos that I posted in that article and adds a couple of different ones.

I listen to this shocking audio (the cell phone camera was clearly pointed at the ceiling throughout the rant) and I simply can’t help but marvel at how ignorant and biased and vulgar public school teachers are today.  I shouldn’t marvel – this crap is going on ALL THE DAMN TIME – but I simply can’t help but maintain an image in my mind how teachers should teach kids TO READ AND WRITE AND DO ARITHMATIC AND THINK.

The public schools are spectacularly failing all around us.  And it’s not like the failure is a mystery.

I serve on a board that provides support for worthy causes.  One of the organizations we support is a Christian school.  While the public schools in California are at the bottom ten percent in the nation and the public schools in Riverside County are in the bottom ten percent in California, this particular Christian school is in the top ten percentile in the nation in terms of SAT scores.

There are two things that are killing American public schools: the union agenda and the secular humanism of the left.  As long as either of these horrors are allowed to characterize education, America’s schools will get worse and worse.  And we’ll see more and more of this garbage.

The fact that this Obamabot teacher – whose name is Tanya Dixon-Neely – was not fired the day this video came out is all you need to understand why America’s children are under the curse of God damn America.
