GOP Or Democrats: Who’s To Blame For the Budget, Spending And Shutdown Mess We’re Now In?

April 8, 2011

As we face an impending government shutdown, it becomes an interesting question to ask, “How did we get here?”  And why are the Democrats literally scheming to shut down the government over the Republicans’ demand to cut just 2% of our massive deficit?  Why do Democrats want to hurt our troops and their families by denying the pay of soldiers who barely make it month to month?  Especially when Republicans have passed a stopgap measure that would fund the troops for the year and keep them out of any budget squabbles?

First, let’s get one fact on the table: this entire “shutdown” mess is the result of Democrats’ pathetic failure to pass a budget when they controlled the White House, the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives last year.

What is being fought over is the FY-2011 budget.  We are now SIX MONTHS into that fiscal year thanks to Democrat incompetence.  And the reason Democrats didn’t bother to pass a budget when they were in total control of the government was because it was an election year, and Democrats didn’t want the American people to see how morally and fiscally insane they truly were.  Bottom line: if Democrats had passed the kind of reckless budget that Democrats invariably pass, the election would have gone even worse for them than it did.

You need to understand the magnitude of the Democrats’ failure last year.  It marked the FIRST TIME in the history of our republic that the party in power failed to pass a budget.  And Democrats were in TOTAL control of all three branches of government at the time.

Furthermore, as soon as the new Republican House took over, they immediately went to work on the budget for this year that Democrats had refused to bother with last year when they were supposed to do so as the most basic part of their duties.  They sent that budget to the Democrat-controlled Senate.  And Harry Reid sat on it and did nothing.

And, for the record, Senate Democrats STILL don’t have any kind of a budget whatsoever.  The only thing they’ve got is a big can of deceitful demagoguery.

Those are the documented facts.

The mainstream media – as they sharpen their knives to carve up Republicans and make them the culprits – are simply lying to you.

That’s one.

Two, let’s consider the budgets passed by the last several Congresses, and then see who passed those budgets.  Let’s see which party is responsible for the shocking deficits that now plague us:

For the record, the last budget from a Republican President AND a Republican Congress – FY-2007 (passed in 2006) – resulted in a$161 billion deficit at a time when unemployment was 4.6%.  That’s what happened the last time the GOP was in control.

What happened when the Democrats took control in January 2007?  Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi passed a FY-2008 budget that had a $459 billion deficit – nearly three times the deficit in the immediately previous Republican-passed budget.  Three times.  And this before the financial crisis that somehow “necessitated” all this massive spending.

Now, that’s a pretty crazy increase under Democrat control.  But you aint seen nothin’ yet.

The Democrats passed a FY-2009 budget with a staggering, mind-boggling, totally reckless $1.42 TRILLION deficit.

The FY-2010 budget approved by Reid and Pelosi and signed by Obama had an estimated $1.6 TRILLION deficit.

The deficit has increased from $161 billion in the last budget before Democrats took control of the Congress (FY 2007) to $1.42 trillion in the most recent fiscal year (FY 2009)—an increase of $1.26 trillion or 782%.

With three months remaining in the fiscal 2009 budget, the federal deficit just officially passed the $1 trillion mark.  Worse yet, Obama borrowed more than forty cents for every single dollar he spent.

We also suffered a budget shortfall of $94 billion in the month of June, which marks the first June in more than ten years (read, “encompassing the entire Bush presidency”).  Bush’s success in raising revenues is bookended by two Democrat presidents who failed.

And now the Democrats aren’t even bothering to pass a budget for the next fiscal year, so they can simply spend without any accountability whatsoever.

That’s your history lesson.  Anyone who wants to blame the reckless spending on Bush or Republicans is either lying, or ignorant, or an ignorant liar.

Three, we need to chop TRILLIONS of dollars in spending if we don’t want our entire nation to collapse and our children to starve in front of our eyes in a depression that will make the 1930s look like a nice day at the beach.

Consider that according to the IMF (International Monetary Fund), the United States faces an unfunded liability of $200 TRILLION dollars.

Democrats are literally fighting to the death over a few billion dollars in this FY-2011 budget that they did nothing about when they had the chance.  At the same time, they are loudly demonizing Paul Ryan’s 2012 budget (notice how, unlike the Democrats, the Republicans are actually being responsible and passing a budget?) that will save $6.2 trillion compared to Obama’s budget over the next ten years – even as it spends more than $40 trillion (as compared to Obama’s $46 trillion).  Ryan’s budget is called “The Path to Prosperity.”  Obama’s out-of-control budget is now the status quo.  Which looks better to you?

There is absolutely NO WAY the nation will do anything but collapse if Democrats are allowed to play any role whatsoever in its governance at this point.

If you vote Democrat, this is your basic posture: “I don’t care about the next generation.  I do not give one DAMN about America.  I want everything that I and my union special interests can get, and screw everybody else.”

And my response is that Democrats are a greater threat to America than al Qaeda or China.  They are a fifth column destroying America from within so our worst enemies don’t have to bother.  We must crush Democrats before they can crush America.

Four, it is an absolute LIE that Republicans are shutting down the government.  The fact is, Republicans just passed another stopgap that would fund the government for a week and fund military operations (as in Obama’s military operations that he’s now placed into three wars) for the remainder of the year.

Consider reality for a change.  From the Associated Press:

US House defy veto threat, pass stopgap spending

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Defying a White House veto threat, the Republican-led US House of Representatives on Thursday passed a stopgap spending bill to avoid a government shutdown as a deadline looms.

US President Barack Obama’s budget office had vowed to reject the measure, dubbing it “a distraction” from difficult, ongoing negotiations on funding the US government for the rest of the fiscal year that ends September 30.

And Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had vowed to block the measure, calling it a “fantasy” and “a non-starter.”

The bill, which cleared the House by a mostly party-line 247-181 vote, would also have funded US military operations for the rest of the year.

Republicans, relying on the measure to gain leverage in the spending cut battle, used that to argue that Democrats and the White House opposed funding for US troops in harm’s way.

And, with all due respect, that is precisely what the rat bastard Democrats are doing; opposing funding for US troops in harm’s way. 

Democrats don’t want to allow the troops to be funded.  Like the terrorists whose side they routinely take, they want to hold America’s ability to defend itself hostage; they want “leverage” over Republicans.  Cave in to our demands or else we’re destroy the military.  Allah Akbar!

Obama and Democrats do not WANT to prevent a government shutdown.  Obama and Democrats are enraged that Republicans give a damn about our troops and their ability to sustain operations.

What Obama and the Democrats want is to force a government shutdown over Republican attempts to prevent one and then use the power of the most propagandist media since Goebbels ran Hitler’s “mainstream media” to blame the GOP.

Because that is the kind of vermin the Democrats have become.

Harry Reid is refusing to allow the Republicans’ stopgap to even come up for debate in the Senate – even though there is no sane alternative.  In fact, the ONLY alternative Reid proposes is a Senate measure that would require a unanimous vote of all 100 Senators.  Which is to say that Harry Reid is forcing a government shutdown.  Period.

Go back and look at the past.  Consider that, under Democrats’ leadership, the federal budget has gone from $161 billion to $1.6 trillion a year with no end in sight until we get these bloated Democrat leeches off our backs.  Understand that a “trillion” is a thousand billion.  That makes the Democrats’ $1.6 trillion deficit a hundred times worse than what the Republicans left us with the last time they controlled Congress.

Consider our present situation.  Deficits skytocketing out of control.  Two hundred trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities that we can never possibly repay.  Interest payments alone soon exceeding $700 billion a year.

And Harry Reid can’t find enough money to pay for his sacred cowboy poetry festival in a $1.6 trillion a year deficit.  And that is not a joke.  It is a dangerous mental disease called “the Democrat Party.”

And consider that Democrats are doing everything they can to shut down the government and cause as much suffering for ordinary Americans as they can with the cynical belief that their liberal mainstream media allies will report the lie every single day that the Republicans are to blame until an ingorant population believes their Big Lie.

I believe we are in the last days before the Tribulation that God forewarned us about nearly 2,000 years ago.  I believe the beast is coming – and that beast will be a big government totalitarian fascist who will be the fulfillment of everything the Democrats have been trying to push America toward for most of the last century.

God didn’t decree the coming Antichrist and the terrible hell on earth that would result from his “government as God” rule; God merely knew that in the last days of the human race we would make the kind of terrible mistakes that would cause the coming of the beast and his seven coming years of hell.  And that is precisely what we have been doing.

We COULD do the right thing and avoid the hell that awaits us.  But we won’t.  And, amazingly, America will be the nation that starts the “beast” ball rolling; when America catches a cold, they say, the rest of the world catches the flu.  And because of the morally and fiscally insane policies of Democrats, America now has flesh eating disease.  You can already see the clear “last days” signs that have resulted from Obama’s wicked and foolish policies.

The beast is coming.

Mainstream Media Propaganda Machine Times Sarah Palin Hit Pieces To Her Speech At Prestigious India Forum

March 17, 2011

There is a mainstream media fire brigade that is prepared to fight any potential Sarah Palin blaze with so many buckets of leftwing hate that she simply doesn’t have a chance.

It is coordinated and it extends to the highest levels of the Big Lie machine we call “journalism”:

New Polls and hit pieces surfaces just when Palin is to give major speech in India (coincidence?)

It was said that Joseph Stalin use to bring foreign journalists and correspondents to his famous “show trials” of his enemies as essential to the success of them. When arguments that public opinion of Western Europe must be considered during these show trials, Stalin replied “Never mind, they’ll swallow it”

Stalin was right, many indeed swallowed it…

Conservatives everywhere for the most part understand that most Major news organizations in the United States is nothing more than a propaganda machine for left wing ideology and special interest groups. But more than just knowing who they are, it is also imperative to know how they do their dirty deed less we fall into the trap eyes-wide open.

Since Sarah Palin came out on the national scene in August of 2008, the big media guns in print, web and television have been going on the offensive against Palin, her family and all that she has accomplish with great fervor filled with gossip, lies and propaganda hit-pieces. The greatest weapon used against Palin is the use of FEAR, UNCERTAINTY and DOUBT to cast a pall over supporters and potential supporters of the former Governor if she ever has an desire to pursue higher office.

This is an attempt to influence public perception by disseminating negative and dubious information designed only to undermine the credibility of their beliefs; the belief that Sarah Palin is a strong candidate that can defeat Barrack Obama in the 2012 election.

Case in point…

Enter India Today Conclave 2011 Saturday, March 19 – A prestigious forum for world leaders to discuss the challenges facing the New World. Previous speakers for this conference have included Benazir Bhutto, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell and the Dalai Lama. The Prime Minister of India is schedule to give the opening remarks to the conference. The former vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party and Governor of Alaska from 2006-09 will exclusively attend the 10th India Today Conclave on Saturday, March 19th and give the key note speech title: “My Vision of America”.

Enter the media -

On Sunday March 13: The New York Magazine publish a ‘UNSOURCED’ gossip article that Palin and Fox News chairman Roger Aile were at odds against each other and that Palin was brazen and contemptuous in her actions to Ailes over advice given to her about the Tucson shooting – something that happened almost two months ago that suddenly reappeared this week for some strange reason.

On Monday March 14: The Politico ran a story Titled: “Palin becoming Al Sharpton?” In the hit-piece they attempt to make Palin politics to be about “grievances and group identity” according to her critics, which is a betrayal of conservative principle and tie her to the likes of Democrat Al Sharpton who is considered a joke, race-baiter and hustler among conservatives.

On Tuesday March 15: Mitt Romney received an another piece of hardware for his Republican-In-Name-Only mantle, the most coveted seal of approval from Meagan McCain (I just threw this bit in just to break the ice a little, it wasn’t all bad for Palin)

On Wednesday March 16: Low and behold, a brand new smacking poll from ABC/Washington Post showing that fewer GOP-leaning independents see Palin in a favorable light – they pointed out that these poll numbers show “a potentially troubling sign for the former Alaska governor as she weighs…” whether to run or not in the 2012 election. Of course many media sources picked up on the new poll and compared Sarah to the likes of Nancy Pelosi low poll numbers and other liberals that conservatives don’t care much for.

(By the way do you actually think that if Palin indeed does run that ABC/Washington Post will ever have a favorable poll numbers for Palin?)

Well, we have two more days to consider what other hit-piece, gossip or polling data telling us who Sarah Palin is or is not, however way you may see it. Some conservatives and independents will indeed lap it up by getting discouraged and buy it no matter how well Palin may do in India which is on the weekend so if Sarah Palin does well you won’t hear much from it but if she was to make a tiny gaffe or something out of the ordinary happened, of course it will be blared across the World.

That’s the World of propaganda and we must learn to see it with eyes wide open what it is before we ‘swallow it’ without even realizing it.

I personally hope Sarah Palin does not try to run for president, as much as I admire her.  The reason is simply that the media collectively have too much power and too much blatant irrational hatred for her.

They will continue to dump more and more toxic stories about her – and who gives a damn if they are all baseless and false? – until they achieve their desired result of poisoning 50-plus percent of the minds against her.

Adolf Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf (James Murphy translation, page 134):

All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.  These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.”

Hitler’s minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, summarized Hitler’s “big lie” theory, saying that if a lie is repeated enough times it would become widely accepted as truth.

This is exactly what the leftwing mainstream media (both in the “news” and in the opinion-shaping late night programs) have repeatedly been doing all along.

I’ve pointed this out before:

As icon of leftwing journalists Walter Lippmann put it:

“News and truth are not the same thing.”

Which of course allows the mainstream media to misrepresent the truth in the guise of reporting “the news.”

As Walter Lippmann also put it:

“The common interests very largely elude public opinion entirely and can be managed only by a specialized class whose personal interests reach beyond the locality.”

Which gives the mainstream media the right to serve as “gatekeepers,” and prevent the people from learning anything that might otherwise cause them to discover that conservatives have it right and liberals have it dead wrong.

And as fellow member of the leftwing journalist hall of fame Edward Bernays put it:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.  Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

Because what is power if you can’t even manipulate the truth and shape it to serve your agenda?  And if you’re a leftwing liberal progressive journalist – as basically 90 percent of journalists are today – what could be better than being one of the people “who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society” so you can “constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country”???

Bernays is a monster in the field of “journalism” that was long-ago hijacked by liberal ideologues with an agenda.  And in fact it isn’t a stretch of any kind to connect Hitler’s “Big Lie” strategy to Bernays:

In describing the origin of the term Public Relations, Bernays commented, “When I came back to the United States [from the war], I decided that if you could use propaganda for war, you could certainly use it for peace. And propaganda got to be a bad word because of the Germans … using it. So what I did was to try to find some other words, so we found the words Counsel on Public Relations”.

Even people who can’t imagine themselves being affected by this ARE affected.  And in fact it’s the fact that they don’t think they can be fooled that serves as the principle reason that they are so easily fooled.  They hear an avalanche of negative coverage, day in and day out, and the inevitable result in their subconscious minds is that they say to themselves, “Something must be wrong with that woman.”

When of course the only thing that’s “wrong” with Sarah Palin is that a completely wicked, dishonest and depraved media machine utterly despise her.

I don’t think Sarah Palin can overcome this.  When you add the ignorant people to the bad people today, you’ve got a clear majority.  And Sarah – as talented as she is – will not be able to compensate for nonstop negative coverage.

What she needs to do is keep doing what she’s been doing since 2009.  She needs to keep getting her message out, getting under the skin of liberals, serving as a lightening rod and playing king- and queenmaker.

And may God bless that courageous woman.

Even Democrats Recognize That Obama Is An Abject Liar On Healthcare

March 16, 2010

First of all, let’s see what Democrat Senator and liberal Dick Durbin just said:

Anyone who would stand before you and say well, if you pass health care reform, next year’s health care premiums are going down, I don’t think is telling the truth.”

Okay, to say that health care premiums is going down is not telling the truth.  Which, of course, is a lie.

Now let’s see what Obama claimed of his ObamaCare boondoggle just the other day in Strongsville, Ohio:

How many people are getting insurance throught their jobs right now, raise your hands, alot of those folk , your employer, it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3000 percent so they could give you a raise.”

HotAir has the video of this total bullshit (please pardon my language, but a gross lie merits a gross description).

The facts of the matter are these: 93% of Americans won’t receive any benefit from ObamaCare.  25% of Americans making less than $200,000 a year would see their health care costs RISE.  And for every one family that receives a subsidy to pay for ObamaCare, three families will pay more.

And THAT is if everything goes well for ObamaCare, and all his outlandish assumptions turn out to be true.

Obama is not a man who tells just one lie; he constantly lies. He says:

The most insidious argument they are making is the idea that somehow this would hurt Medicare.  This proposal makes Medicare stronger. It makes the coverage better and makes the finances more secure. And anybody who says otherwise is either misinformed or they are trying to misinform you.”

But it is Obama who is at best misinformed and misleading others because the $500 billion in cuts from Medicare are counted as helping its survival even though the money is siphoned off and spent on other programs.  Obama is trying to spend the same dollar twice.   Former CBO Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin says, “This simply takes Medicare money out and uses it somewhere else.  That’s weakening a system that’s already in bad trouble.”

Current CBO director Douglass Elmendorf agrees, saying:

“… to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the government’s fiscal position.”

And Richard Foster, the chief actuary for Medicare and Medicaid said the same thing on December 10, 2009 in pointing out that Medicare cuts:

“… cannot be simultaneously used to finance other Federal outlays and to extend the trust fund …”

With “other Federal outlays” referring to huge subsidies to help millions purchase their now mandatory health care policies.

Obama is being incredibly intellectually dishonest.  Maya Macguineas of the Committee for Responsible Federal Budget puts it this way: “Just like an American family that is struggling to stay afloat, you can’t use the same dollar to pay for a mortgage and pay down their credit card. You can only count a dollar once.  So there has been some double counting here.”

Barack Obama is taking $500 billion – that’s half a TRILLION dollars – from a program that is already in desperate crisis, spending that money somewhere else, and then claiming he’s strengthening Medicare.  That is a bald faced lie of gargantuan proportions.

We also have Obama cynically exploiting health care “victims” – including an 11-year old kid – and then lying about their stories in order to drum up emotion, block out the facts, and discourage rational debate.

Obama isn’t only lying; he’s outrageously lying.  He has mastered Hitler’s Big Lie course of political deceit.  Professor Hitler said of the Big Lie:

“All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously” (Mein Kampf, James Murphy translation, page 134).

Obama clearly has the impudence to lie so outrageously it literally boggles the mind.  And it is a longstanding pattern with him.  When the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate promised that he would be a transcending bipartisan figure who would heal the polarization, that was a Big Lie.  When Obama attacked Bush’s surge strategy (before he initiated his own surge strategy) and promised that he would bring the troops home and end the wars, that was a Big Lie.  When Obama promised over and over again that he would hold the health care negotiations on C-SPAN so everyone could see the entire process, that was a Big Lie.  When Obama promised that he would close Gitmo in a year when he had nowhere to put the detainees, that was a Big Lie.  Etcetera.

As Hitler was rising to power, Jewish doctor Herta Knotwolf said:

So many worship him as their savior, their redeemer from unbearable poverty.  Many are filled with some have worry, but all are united in the words, ‘Now things will change.’

I’ve wondered how Hitler’s “hope and change” program worked out for that Jewish woman.  My guess is, not so well.  “Change” probably ended up seeing her transition from a comfortable life as a doctor to a short and brutal life in a death camp.

Obama’s constant “the time for talk is over; the time for action is now!” blathering also hearkens back to dark leaders of the past.

I’m not trying to argue that Obama is going to personally initiate another Holocaust of Jews (although he in fact is the most anti-Israel president in U.S. history); what I am saying is that Obama is a world-class liar, and if people believe his outrageous lies about his health care takeover, they will one day truly suffer for their naive stupidity.

Exposed: Obama’s Lie That Democrats Don’t Want Government Takeover Of Health Care

August 4, 2009

The big lie: Democrats do not want a government takeover of your health care.  This claim is so blatantly false that it is positively unreal.  But count on Obama and his propagandists to keep repeating the big lie over and over and over again.

As health care plan continued to sink in public approval, Obama recently said:

First of all,” Mr. Obama said, “nobody is talking about some government takeover of health care. I’m tired of hearing that. I have been as clear as I can be. Under the reform I’ve proposed, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor; if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. These folks need to stop scaring everybody, you know?”

When Obama says you can keep your plan, he’s not telling you the truth – as his plan itself reveals.  This Wall Street Journal article is utterly damning in its exposure of what the Democrat’s plan quietly takes away in five years.  But for the time being, let’s stick with Obama’s claim that “nobody’s talking about some government takeover of health care.”

Obama said on June 15th:

“What are not legitimate concerns are those being put forward claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single-payer system. … So, when you hear the naysayers claim that I’m trying to bring about government-run health care, know this – they are not telling the truth.”

The only problem is that that is patently and demonstrably false.  Barack Obama is lying to you without shame.

NOBODY is talking about some government takeover of health care?  Nobody is talking about bringing government run health care?  Really, Barry Hussein?  Then how about Democrat Barney Frank, chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee?

Asked on July 27th why we shouldn’t simply start out with a single payer government takeover of the health care system, Barney Frank responded:

“Because we don’t have the votes for it. I wish we did. I think that if we get a good public option it could lead to single payer and that is the best way to reach single payer. Saying you’ll do nothing till you get single payer is a sure way never to get it. … I think the best way we’re going to get single payer, the only way, is to have a public option and demonstrate the strength of its power.”

Watch him yourself:

In other words – after acknowledging that liberals don’t have either the popular American support or the votes in Congress for a single payer government-run universal health care system – Frank proceeds to say that the best pathway to that very system that “nobody is talking about” is the Democrat’s “public option.”

Nobody’s talking about it, Barry?  You liar!

How about Illinois Democrat Jan Schakowsky, who co-sponsored HR-676?

She said:

“A public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single-payer” – Rep. Jan Schakowsky (to wild applause).

You can watch her, too.

Schakowsky clearly states that her “public option” will put the private insurers out of business, which will necessarily lead to government Obamacare.  As the public option artificially lowers prices by constant subsidies from taxpayer dollars, how can private insurers who MUST make at least break even stay in business?  And when the private insurers are gone, what possibility will be left but government care?

Senator Russ Feingold similarly sees the ultimate goal of the current health care plan to be a single-payer universal health care system.  And, yes, you can watch him saying it, too.

Well, maybe Obama is just hunkering down in his bunker completely ignorant of what Democrats are saying all around him, one might argue.

Sorry, Charlie.  That falls down on its face because of the simple fact that Barack Obama himself is on the record being a proponent and advocate of a government-run single payer universal health care system.

Senator Barack Obama’s Speech on Health Care Reform, Delivered on May 29, 2007 at the University of Iowa:

“The very first promise I made on this campaign was that as president I will sign a universal health care plan into law by the end of my first term in office.”

B- bu- bu- but Barry Hussein said “nobody’s talking” about a government takeover.  B- bu- bu- but he’s on record vowing to SIGN just such a universal health care bill into law by the end of his term.  How can you say “nobody’s talking about it” when you promised to sign “it” into law by the end of your term?

And this wasn’t some come-late-to-the-party talking point.  Oh, no. Here is Obama speaking to the Illinois AFL-CIO, June 30, 2003:

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.” (applause) “I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out.  A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately.  Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”

So, when Barack Hussein Obama says, “nobody’s talking about some government takeover of health care,” he couldn’t be more personally dishonest.  He is lying to the American people.  HE HIMSELF been talking about it, and he’s been talking about it for YEARS.  Just as many other Democrats have been and are right now talking about it.

And “Trojan horse”?  Oh, yeah, a Trojan horse with massively high costs due to inherent government inefficiency, political pork, and fraud, and with rationing of health care resources leading to delays and flat denial of care, is being wheeled into the United States of America.  Open it at your grandparent’s peril.

And don’t think that these people won’t fight as dirty as necessary to win.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky:

“This is not a principled fight.  This is a fight about a strategy for getting there, and I believe we will” – Rep. Jan Schakowski

So it’s a Trojan horse that can be smuggled into our camp using the most deceptive and deceitful means, because this isn’t about principle, but about Statists imposing the total government control over our lives they’ve always yearned for.

Or you can ask influential Democrat health care strategist Dr. Jacob Hacker:

“Someone once said to me that this is a Trojan horse for single-payer, and I said, ‘Well it’s not a Trojan horse, right?  It’s just right there!  I’m telling you!  We’re going to get there. Over time, slowly, but we’ll move away from reliance on employment-based health insurance – as we should – but we’ll do it in a way that we’re not going to frighten people into thinking they are going to lose their private insurance” – Dr. Jacob Hacker, New America Foundation.

Hacker denies that the “public option” is a Trojan horse for the simple reason that it is so blatantly OBVIOUS that it’s not really a “Trojan horse” – it’s just “right there” in your face.  His plan is to treat the American people like the proverbial frog in the pot of heating water: don’t frighten us into jumping out; just gradually cook us to death.

White House shills are accusing conservatives of taking these politicians out of context.  But you can watch them yourself to see that they are on the record saying EXACTLY what we say they are saying.  And it’s a deceitful and fraudulent pack of lies to claim anything else.  You’re not supposed to believe what your lying eyes see and what your lying ears hear: you’re supposed to just believe the shifting liberal talking points that adjust the Democrat’s propaganda and demagoguery to suit the needs of the moment.

Did I say “demagoguery”?  I think I did!  So I’d better cite Nancy Pelosi, the Demagogue of the House of Representatives herself:

“They are the villains in this,” Pelosi said of private insurers. “They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And the public has to know that. They can disguise their arguments any way they want, but the fact is that they don’t want the competition.”…

“It’s almost immoral what they are doing,” added Pelosi, who stood outside her office long after her press conference ended to continue speaking to reporters, even as aides tried in vain to usher her inside. “Of course they’ve been immoral all along in how they have treated the people that they insure with pre-existing conditions, you know, the litany of it all.”

Just realize that 84% of Americans are satisfied with the quality of care they are receiving from these “immoral villains.”  Meanwhile, it’s NANCY PELOSI Americans overwhelmingly view as being “immoral” and “villainous.”

Apart from the patent dishonesty and demagoguery, ask yourself this question: “Without the private health insurance that Nancy Pelosi – and now the Democrat Party itself – is demonizing, how long do you think we’d have our present private health care system?  The answer is, “Less than a nanosecond.”

So every single time you hear a Democrat attack private health insurers, just recognize that they are in fact attacking the private health care system, even as they seek to impose on you a choice-denying, care-depriving, exorbitantly expensive government system in its place.

You literally cannot trust anything the Democrats are saying on health care.  They are lying about literally everything as they try to impose socialized medicine onto a once-free society.

Waterboarded 183 Times? Mainstream Media’s ‘Big Lies’

April 30, 2009

The American Media have read their copies of Mein Kampf, underlined key passages, and put them to use in their propaganda.

Recently the media, the pundits, the late show comics, and prominent Democrats – including the Teleprompter of the United States – have repeatedly advanced the completely false charge that “90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico and used to shoot judges, police officers and mayors … come from the United States.”  It’s a complete lie.  A lie that Democrats have tried to use for political effect.

In reality, the overwhelming majority of guns confiscated from drug cartels come from foreign countries, or from Mexico itself.  Of the small percentage that had serial numbers submitted to the United States, 90% OF THOSE GUNS came from the U.S.  And those guns were legal handguns, rifles, and shotguns – NOT assault rifles [WHY would drug cartels want semi-automatic "assault weapons" from the U.S. when they could buy the full-auto real deal somewhere else?]

Now we learn about another massive lie that liberals have used to great political effect:

Despite Reports, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Was Not Waterboarded 183 Times
The number of times Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded was the focus of major media attention — and highly misleading.

By Joseph Abrams
FOX NEWS
Tuesday, April 28, 2009

The New York Times reported last week that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, was waterboarded 183 times in one month by CIA interrogators. The “183 times” was widely circulated by news outlets throughout the world.

It was shocking. And it was highly misleading. The number is a vast inflation, according to information from a U.S. official and the testimony of the terrorists themselves.

A U.S. official with knowledge of the interrogation program told FOX News that the much-cited figure represents the number of times water was poured onto Mohammed’s face — not the number of times the CIA applied the simulated-drowning technique on the terror suspect. According to a 2007 Red Cross report, he was subjected a total of “five sessions of ill-treatment.”

“The water was poured 183 times — there were 183 pours,” the official explained, adding that “each pour was a matter of seconds.” [...]

The confusion stems from language in the Justice Department legal memos that President Obama released on April 16. They contain the numbers, but they fail to explain exactly what they represent. [...]

Pours, not waterboards.

A close look at a Red Cross report on the interrogations makes the numbers even clearer.

As the Red Cross noted: “The suffocation procedure was applied [to Abu Zubaydah] during five sessions of ill-treatment … in 2002. During each session, apart from one, the suffocation technique was applied once or twice; on one occasion it was applied three times.”

The total number of applications: between eight and 10 — not the 83 mentioned in the Times.

Mohammed similarly told the Red Cross that “I was also subjected to ‘water-boarding’ on five occasions, all of which occurred during the first month.” Those were his five “sessions”; the precise number of applications is not known but is a fraction of the 183 figure.

All of those individual pours were scrupulously counted by the CIA, according to the memos, to abide by the procedures set up for the waterboardings.

“[I]t is important that every application of the waterboard be thoroughly documented: how long each application (and the entire procedure) lasted, how much water was used in the process,” read a memo from May 10, 2005. [...]

The media picked up this distortion and – for their own ideological purposes – ran with it rather than fact check it.  Ordinary bloggers realized that the numbers simply didn’t add up:

Bloggers who read the memos last week noted that the CIA’s math “doesn’t add up” … and they could barely even guess how the detainees could have been waterboarded an astounding 286 times in one month.

Are we seriously supposed to believe that these cynical, hardened professional journalists had absolutely no idea that something was desperately wrong with what they were reporting?

The media – and the Obama administration – deliberately perpetuated falsehoods because they wanted to convey two false “truths”: 1) the waterboarding of two terror suspects (266 times!!!) “clearly” constituted torture.  And 2) the waterboarding technique “obviously” had no effect since it had to be used so many times.

There’s something very troubling.  President Obama deliberately released confusing memos, made absolutely no effort to clarify to the American people what those memos actually meant, and then refused to provide any more information that would have put those carefully selected memos into context.  It was all a giant lie.

We come back to the FACT of the subheading of an article:  “The former head of the CIA told FOX News last year that five years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, 60 percent of the knowledge of the U.S. intelligence community about Al Qaeda came from enhanced interrogation techniques.”

In other words, the CIA under Bush learned 60% of everything they gathered on al Qaeda by basically waterboarding.  And Barack Obama has just left the US intelligence community more than half blind as a result of his naive, politically correct moralizing hypocrisy.

But the propagandists of both the Obama administration and the media didn’t want us to know this; what they wanted us to “know” was the LIE that terror suspects were waterboarded 266 times.

They want the story to be about “Who practiced torture, and who is pledging to restore American virtue?” rather than, “Who kept us safe, and who is going to place this country at terrible risk?

Adolf Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf (James Murphy translation, page 134):

All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.  These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.”

Hitler’s minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, summarized Hitler’s “big lie” theory, saying that if a lie is repeated enough times it would become widely accepted as truth.

This is exactly what the Obama administration and the ideological leftwing mainstream media (both in the “news” and in the opinion-shaping late night programs) have repeatedly been doing.

Mark Twain famously said,

“A lie can be half-way round the world before the truth has got its boots on.”

And this story that these two suspects were repeatedly, tortuously waterboarded 266 times is now all over the world, thanks to our Liar-in-Chief and his Joseph Goebbels minions.

And Hitler said,

For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

Our professional liars – who call themselves “journalists” – understand that, and know that their lies will continue to wield impact even long after they are demonstrated to have been false all along.

Barack Obama, his Democrat lackeys, and the mainstream media, are FAR more evil in deliberately misrepresenting the truth for political partisan purposes than the Bush officials and the CIA interrogators who tried to keep this country safe after it suffered its worst attack in history.

And thus we descend into the Fascist States of America.ir
