Mainstream Media Propagandists Refuse To Do Their Jobs; Up To A College Kid To Expose Democrat 2008 Election Cheating In Indiana

October 19, 2011

Just another example that the mainstream media consists of a bunch of depraved and dishonest propagandists who are as much in the tank for the Democrat Party as Joseph Goebbels and his Ministry of Propaganda was in the tank for Adolf Hitler:

College Student Credited With Uncovering Possible Election Fraud in Indiana’s 2008 Primary
By Eric Shawn
Published October 18, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Shocking election fraud allegations have stained a state’s 2008 presidential primary – and it took a college student to uncover them.

This fraud was obvious, far-reaching and appeared to be systemic,” 22-year-old Ryan Nees told Fox News, referring to evidence he uncovered while researching electoral petitions from the 2008 Democratic Party primary in Indiana.

Nees’ investigation centered on the petitions that put then-senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the ballot. As many as 150 of the names and signatures, it is alleged, were faked. So many, in fact, that the numbers raise questions about whether Obama’s campaign had enough legitimate signatures to qualify for a spot on the ballot.

What seems to have happened is that a variety of people in northern Indiana knew that this fraud occurred, and actively participated and perpetuated the fraud, and did so on behalf of two presidential campaigns,” according to Nees.

Prosecutors are now investigating. The scandal has already led to the sudden resignation Monday night of Butch Morgan, chairman of the St. Joseph County Democratic Party. He denied any wrongdoing, saying he looks “forward to an investigation that will exonerate me.”

Nees, a junior at Yale University, served as an intern in the Obama White House last year and supports the president’s re-election. But as an intern at the non-partisan political newsletter Howey Politics Indiana, he delved into the Byzantine and complicated world of petition signatures and found reams of signatures that he says appeared to be written in the same handwriting, some apparently copied from previous petitions.

The names were subsequently submitted to Indiana election authorities as the signatures of legitimate voters. Nees and Brian Howey, the newsletter’s publisher, then teamed up with the South Bend Tribune to break the story.

St. Joseph County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Dvorak announced Tuesday that the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Indiana will not be investigating these allegations. So Dvorak is doing so and has requested the assistance of the Indiana State Police.

In a statement, Dvorak said the U.S. attorney “does not investigate allegations of fraud in the submission of petitions by political parties for the placement of the names of candidates on the ballot for federal primary elections. They do, however, investigate fraud in voter registration, the actual voting process and in the tabulation of ballots.”

The state Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb had called for a federal investigation.

“We don’t know the extent of the crime. We don’t know how many people. We don’t know if it was organized. Those were some of my questions. How deep does it go? Does it go to one county? Does it go to one district? Does it go to one state? Does it go to 49 other states?”

Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker also supports an investigation. He released a statement that said, in part, “We continue to fully support the investigation into this isolated incident in St. Joseph County. We want to know who committed this act, and we want that person held accountable.”

Nees thinks the candidates did not have knowledge of the alleged forgeries, but he says such things can easily happen.

“This appears to have been the actions of the northern Indiana political machine that operated within the Indiana Democratic Party, not within the campaigns of either President Obama or Secretary of State Clinton,” he said.

“What’s important to me is that this sort of thing not occur in the future. This happened with impunity because no one thought that they would ever get caught, and in fact it was likely that no one would ever catch them because no structural safeguard existed to ensure that this wouldn’t occur.”

Howey, the publisher of the political newsletter, told Fox News he also plans to examine the petitions that put Sen. John McCain’s name on the Republican ballot. “It makes sense to look at the whole thing,” he said.

As Nees sat on a bench on the leafy downtown green in New Haven, Conn., with the imposing ivy and Gothic architecture of Yale behind him, he reflected on what he had found back home in his home state.

“Election fraud is particularly troublesome, because it undermines the integrity of our voting process and basically of our democracy. Maintaining the integrity of elections in the United States is an important thing.”

Democrats are dishonest.  And the most dishonest Democrat of all has become our president.

As to the final paragraph of the story, just let me quote Obama:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

A month after making that statement, Barack Obama did the very thing that he himself had just said would be un-American, undemocratic and unconstitutional to do.

The wicked, lying weasel who now occupies our White House is not above even the lowest dirtball tactic.  He was a political slimeball from his first campaign.  At his core he is a Chicago thug.  And even the liberal New York Times ripped Obama on his loathsome personal character.

And frankly nothing this wicked scion of “God damn America” does will surprise me.

Nazis, Socialists, Communists, Liberals, Democrats, Obama, Media Propaganda ALL Support Occupy Wall Street

October 17, 2011

In preamble to the following article, I disagree with David Martosko that having Nazis and liberals together in any way counts as “strange bedfellows.”  If you understand the platform that brought the Nazis to power in the first place, and if you understand that “Nazi” itself stands for “National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party,” and if you understand that Nazism was all about big government socialist tyranny, you know that it is absolutely within the character of the Nazis to support yet another leftwing movement.  Just as it is absolutely within the character of the left to embrace the support of the most vile organizations on earth.

Red, White and Angry
: Communist, Nazi parties endorse ‘Occupy’ protests
By David Martosko Published: 12:31 AM 10/17/2011 | Updated: 4:28 PM 10/17/2011

In a move that may redefine the term “strange bedfellows,” the American Nazi Party issued an official endorsement of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement on Sunday afternoon. The announcement put the organization, a self-described “National Socialist” political party, in company with the Socialist Party USA, which explained its own support for the left-wing protesters in a nationwide conference call last Tuesday night, crediting organized labor with the protests’ strength and sophistication to date.

The American Nazi Party is the most politically sophisticated U.S. remnant — but by no means the only one — of white supremacist Adolph Hitler’s murderous 20th century movement, which sought to establish socialism for Aryans, and to subjugate non-Aryans. The party calls Hitler’s Mein Kampf “an ideological blueprint for healthy Aryan survival.”

In its statement on Sunday, the Westland, Mich.-based Nazi party wrote that the Occupy Wall Street protests are “TAYLOR [sic] MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN [White Nationalists] who are serious about DOING SOMETHING.”

“I urgently URGE all of you,” the statement’s unnamed author added, “to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the ‘JEW BANKER’ influence — DON’T wear anything marking you as an ‘evil racist’ — and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!”

While Nazis seem unenthusiastic about visibly linking their flagship organization to the vocal protests that have popped up in dozens of U.S. cities, the same can’t be said of the Communist Party USA.

John Bachtell, an Illinois-based community organizer and Communist Party USA board member, addressed the “Occupy Chicago” protest on Saturday.

“I bring greetings and solidarity from the Communist Party,” Bachtell said to hoots and applause. “We are here, marching side-by-side. We’ll sleep here. We’ll be with this movement ’til the very – ’til we make all the changes that we know we have to make.”

This is a movement that believes that sustantially believes that the U.S. government is no better than Al Qaeda.

There have been hundreds of arrests in this movement.  In fact, at least EIGHT HUNDRED leftists have been arrested at Occupy Wall Street events.  Versus almost ZERO arrests for the Tea Party – which has been demonstrating for going on three years.  And yet the liberal hypocrite cockroaches in both the mainstream media and the Democrat Party deceitfully depicted the Tea Party movement as “violent” while they depict the Occupy Wall Street movement as positive.  In the same way, the Tea Party was denounced as “racist” because the Tea Party demonstrators were mostly white; while the fact that the Occupy Wall Street movement is almost entirely white has gone completely unnoticed in the dishonest mainstream media propaganda machine.  Because they are liars without a scintilla of shame or integrity or honor.

I’ve been pointing out that Nazism was leftwing for years now:

Today Is the 900th Day Since Democrats Bothered To Pass a Budget

October 16, 2011

This is truly stunning in the scope of the Democrat Party’s gross incompetence and their dereliction of the fundamental duty of governance:

This Sunday: 900 Days Without a Senate Budget
Guy Benson, Political Editor, Townhall.com
Oct 14, 2011 4:44 PM

It’s been awhile since we’ve harped on this unlawful, cowardly, and politically-calculated failure of Democrats in the Senate — but the 900-day mark seems like as good an opportunity as any to refresh everyone’s memory about just how derelict Reid’s posse continues to be. Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Jeff Sessions pre-emptively mark this pitiful milestone with a scathing indictment :

America is greatly in need of strong, competent leadership. Our nation’s total debt is now larger than our entire economy. Unemployment is painfully high and growth is painfully slow. Since taking office, the president has accelerated Washington’s reckless spending spree, added trillions of dollars to the debt, and has refused to present a credible plan to put Washington’s fiscal house in order.

Meanwhile, Congress is divided. Republicans control the House, Democrats the Senate. As required by law, House Republicans presented a budget in committee, brought it to the floor, and passed it earlier this spring. It was an honest, detailed, concrete plan to put our budget on the path to balance and our economy on the path to prosperity. B ut Senate Democrats, during this time of national crisis, failed even to present a budget plan—in open defiance of the law and the public they serve. Senate Majority Leader Reid said it would be ‘foolish’ to have a budget. The reason for this evasion is clear: Democrat leaders in Washington think it is politically foolish to commit publicly to the kind of tax increases and health-care rationing that would be required to sustain their vision of ever-expanding federal government.

This is the second consecutive year Senate Democrats have disregarded the legally mandated budget process. In fact, this Sunday will mark the 900th day since Senate Democrats last adopted a formal budget plan as outlined in the Congressional Budget Act. It is a national disgrace.As we encourage our colleagues to fulfill their basic duties of governance, we will continue to advance proposals aimed at strengthening the budget process.

It is time Washington played by the rules. Elected leaders have a legal—and moral—obligation to prioritize taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars with an honest budget. We’re approaching 900 days since Senate Democrats last took that obligation seriously.

As Democrats continue to cast Republicans as the obstructionist “Party of No” (a label that conveniently ignores Democratic disunity), remember this: Not a single Senate Democrat has voted ‘yes’ on any proposed buget this year. That’s right, every Democrat in the United States Senate has voted to reject all five budget resolutions brought before them; four from Republicans, and one from President Obama. And no, guys, your little debt deal “deem” gimmick doesn’t absolve you of any responsibility here.

Pass this anniversary on.  And explain what it means.  Because it means that the Democrat Party has absolutely no interest or intention whatsoever of EVER reigning in the cost of government until after America implodes from the sheer massive weight of all the debt that they created.

The Democrat Party is the party of moral and rational insanity.

Democrat Lies About Their Key Role In 2008 Economic Collapse Reaches Laughable Proportions

October 13, 2011

In 2008, our economy collapsed.  So Americans elected the people who had engineered the collapse.  Because apparently we have the same nihilistic desire to go the way of the Dodo bird that every single other great culture in history degenerated to before their collapses.

Barney Frank: The Community Reinvestment Act Was a ‘Republican Failure’
By Jim Geraghty
Posted on October 12, 2011 9:19 AM

In today’s Wall Street Journal:

Asked who was to blame for the 2008 financial crisis and whether any bankers should have been prosecuted, Mrs. Bachmann and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich put the onus on the federal government, with Mr. Gingrich suggesting that former Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd and Rep. Barney Frank, former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, should both be jailed.

“It was the federal government that pushed the subprime loans . . . that pushed the community reinvestment act,” said Mrs. Bachmann, citing what she considered the causes of the housing meltdown.

Mr. Frank released an emailed statement in response: “In fact, Chris Dodd and I were in the minority from 1995 until 2006, so Gingrich is blaming us for Republican failures.”

So panicked is the response from Congressman “I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing” Frank that he forgets that from May 2001 to the end of 2002, Democrats controlled the Senate and Dodd was the second-ranking Democrat on the committee after chairman Paul Sarbanes.

It is also revealing that Frank believes that Bush-administration assent to policies he supported means that the consequences of those policies are, ipso facto, “Republican failures.” As Peter Wallison lays out on the Journal’s op-ed page, you can blame Wall Street for reckless gambling on mortgage-backed securities all you want, but the risk of the mortgage-backed securities never takes off unless the federal government starts pushing lenders to lower their standards for worthy borrowers. Sure, the big-bank investors never should have gone dancing in the minefield, but the minefield was set up by federal policies that encouraged massive loans to “borrowers with blemished credit, or were loans with no or low down payments, no documentation, or required only interest payments.”

It is rather amazing that with laughably inaccurate defenses like this, Frank is still considered a significant voice in the Democratic party today.

First of all, the Community Reinvestment Act was passed in 1977 during the Carter administration the last time Democrats controlled EVERYTHING.  For the Democrat control of the House, see here; for the Senate, see here).  It is yet another of so many other examples of the clear and present danger that Democrats pose to the United States of America.

The Community Reinvestment Act was radically and insanely expanded in the last two years of the Clinton Administration.

The problem that Republicans had in doing away with the atomic bomb buried in the underbelly of the once-free market mortgage system was that to do away with CRA would have been decried as “racist.”  Because Democrats are vile cockroaches and that is basically the only play in their playbook.

For his part, Barney Frank was successful SEVENTEEN TIMES in shielding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from regulation (at least in part so his homosexual lover could have a job).  The article I link to includes an interesting image:

The Fact of the matter is that Democrats were crawling all over this economic collapse:

Bill Clinton admitted:

“I think the responsibility the Democrats have may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”

But the same Democrats who refused to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac” became hard-core obstructionists in blocking Bush from doing ANYTHING to save our economy even as Republicans like John McCain repeatedly warned that America was the Titanic and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were the two giant icebergs.  And then after the collapse that Democrats did everything they could to cause, they were ready to demonize Bush and the very people who had warned of the impending disaster and who had repeatedly tried to avert that disaster.

The mainstream media refused to hold liberals accountable for the failure of liberal policies because the mainstream media are a) liberals themselves and b) outright propagandists.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac expanded to gargantuan proportions, controlling well over 60% of the mortgages in America.  When Fannie and Freddie collapsed FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER BANKING INSTITUTION, that collapsed initiated a loss of confidence in the private lenders because those lenders had purchased billions in Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s toxic assets.

If you EVER want to have a functioning economy again, never elect another Democrat for so much as rat catcher.  Repudiate racist race-based policies that are socialist interferences with the free market, and allow the free market to make loans to people – and ONLY to the people – who can afford to pay those loans back, regardless of the color of the applicant’s skin.

Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America.  And he’s done so.  If you like blacks and poor people being crushed, than you ought to be happy about Obama’s “fundamental transformation.”  Because that is exactly what the man has brought with his idiotic Marxist policies.

Iran Recognizes Obama Is A Weakling, Commits Act Of War Against America; So What Will The Weakling Do About It?

U.S. Ties Iran to Plot to Kill Saudi Envoy
By EVAN PEREZ
 
WASHINGTON—U.S. authorities said Tuesday they had charged two men in an Iranian-directed plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S.

The alleged assassination plot would represent an escalation in the confrontation between mostly Shiite Iran and mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia, two longtime Middle East rivals. The charges are also a rare instance of Washington accusing Iranian groups of fomenting terrorism on U.S. soil.

Elements of the Iranian government were ready to spend $1.5 million to hire what they believed was a drug-cartel hit squad from Mexico, said U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Prosecutors filed several criminal charges against Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen who holds Iranian and U.S. passports, and Gholam Shakuri, described as a member of a special-operations unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Mr. Holder said Mr. Arbabsiar and his Iran-based co-conspirators had been plotting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador since the spring.

A spokesman for Iran’s mission to the United Nations in New York said, “We categorically reject these baseless allegations.”

Mr. Arbabsiar was being held without bail following a court appearance Tuesday.

Arbabsiar’s court-appointed lawyer, Sabrina Shroff, made some medical requests in writing Tuesday, the Associated Press reported. Outside court, she said her client needed medication for high blood pressure.

Mr. Arbabsiar, who was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York on Sept. 29, has confessed to his involvement in the plot, while Mr. Shakuri remains at large, the Justice Department said.

Prosecutors allege that Mr. Arbabsiar approached a Drug Enforcement Administration informant earlier this year and held multiple meetings in Mexico over months with people he believed to be cartel members. In August, the plotters wired a $100,000 down payment to a U.S. government account in New York, the Justice Department said.

President Barack Obama was first briefed on the alleged plot in June and directed government agencies to support the investigation, officials said.

White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said the disruption of the plot was “a significant achievement by our intelligence and law enforcement agencies.”

The Saudi embassy in Washington issued a brief statement condemning the alleged plot as “a despicable violation of international norms, standards and conventions.” Saudi officials believe the plot targeted the ambassador, Adel A. Al-Jubeir, because of his close ties to the king and his influential role in shaping Saudi policy.

According to a criminal complaint unsealed in New York, Mr. Arbabsiar told the U.S. informant that it would be better if the ambassador could be killed in a simple shooting, but that if the only way to do it was to blow up a restaurant full of people, it was “no big deal,” according to the complaint.

Mr. Arbabsiar was arrested by U.S. authorities during a layover at JFK after he was denied entry to Mexico, where he and the supposed hit squad had arranged to meet to finalize payment for the plot, the Justice Department said.

Mr. Arbabsiar agreed to cooperate with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. said. The complaint states he told agents he had been instructed by his handlers “to use the code word ‘Chevrolet’ when discussing the ambassador plot.”

The complaint also alleges that Mr. Arbabsiar negotiated plans with the undercover informant to conduct other attacks. A person familiar with the case said the attacks discussed were possible bombings of the Israeli embassies in Washington and Argentina.

According to investigators, Mr. Arbabsiar’s Iranian handlers were insistent that the ambassador be killed before any additional attacks.

After he was captured, Mr. Arbabsiar made a recorded phone call to Iran to the other man charged in the plot, Mr. Shakuri, in which prosecutors say Mr. Shakuri, using the code word for the operation, again gave the go-ahead to the attack on the ambassador.

“Just do it quickly, it’s late,” Mr. Shakuri allegedly said.

According to prosecutors, Mr. Arbabsiar told investigators he was recruited and directed by senior members of Iran’s Qods Force, which the U.S. described as a special-operations unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Tensions have risen this year between Saudi Arabia and Iran, which long have struggled for political dominance in the Mideast. During the “Arab Spring,” thousands of Bahraini citizens, the majority of whom are Shiite, protested against their ruler, a Sunni king who is favored by Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia deployed hundreds of troops to support the Bahraini king and accused Iran of backing the protests and trying to destabilize the region.

Saudi Arabia recently negotiated a $60 billion arms deal with the U.S., and it has said it would bulk up its armed forces.

A senior Saudi official in Riyadh said the government considers the alleged plot to be a “serious” escalation in Iran’s moves to try to destabilize the kingdom and the wider Middle East.

The Treasury Department said Tuesday it put five people under sanctions, including four senior Qods Force officers whom the U.S. connected to the alleged assassination plot. Americans are prohibited from engaging in transactions with the five people and any assets they may hold in the U.S. are frozen, Treasury said.

The senior Saudi official in Riyadh says one of the men listed on the Treasury sanctions list has been a person of interest to Riyadh for a long time. Saudi intelligence believes that Qasem Soleimani, whom U.S. officials say is a senior commander of the elite Iranian Qods Forces, is also responsible for the Iranian intelligence campaigns around the Arabian Gulf countries. Mr. Soleimani has played a role in destabilizing the oil-rich Gulf countries through domestic crime waves, establishing spy rings and disseminating anti-government propaganda in those places, the Saudi official said.

The same government that just tried to assasinate two ambassadors INSIDE the United States is actively trying to acquire nuclear weapons.

Allow me to replay just how pathetic a bunch of idiot demagogue fools every single key member of the Obama administration (including Obama himself) have been regarding the gigantic threat posed by Iran:

Democrats rip Bush’s Iran policy
Presidential candidates say a new intelligence report shows that the administration has been talking too tough.
By Scott Martelle and Robin Abcarian
December 05, 2007

Democratic presidential candidates teamed up during a National Public Radio debate here Tuesday to blast the Bush administration over its policy toward Iran, arguing that a new intelligence assessment proves that the administration has needlessly ratcheted up military rhetoric.

While the candidates differed somewhat over the level of threat Iran poses in the Mideast, most of them sought to liken the administration’s approach to Iran with its buildup to the war in Iraq.

I vehemently disagree with the president that nothing’s changed and therefore nothing in American policy has to change,” said New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. “We do know that pressure on Iran does have an effect. I think that is an important lesson.”

Delaware Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the new intelligence report indicated that Iran dropped its program before international pressure came into play.

“It was like watching a rerun of his statements on Iraq five years earlier,” Biden said. “Iran is not a nuclear threat to the United States of America. Iran should be dealt with directly, with the rest of the world at our side. But we’ve made it more difficult now, because who is going to trust us?”

The debate was aired without a studio audience over NPR, live from the Iowa State Historical Museum. It covered Iran, China and immigration, offering the contenders a chance to delve more deeply into subjects that often receive less detailed debate treatment.

Clinton and Biden were joined by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, Connecticut Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, Ohio Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, and former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson missed the debate to attend the funeral of Cpl. Clem Robert Boody in Independence, Iowa. Boody was a Korean War soldier whose remains Richardson had helped retrieve from North Korea earlier this year.

The National Intelligence Assessment report on Iran, released Monday, was the focus of the first third of the two-hour debate.

The assessment concluded that Iran halted its nuclear program in 2003 largely because of international pressure — reversing a conclusion made two years ago that the nation was aggressively pursuing nuclear weapons.

The Democrats used the issue to criticize each other as well as President Bush. Yet their own prescriptions for dealing with Iran are similar — and fairly close to the administration’s approach of increasing diplomatic and economic pressure to force Tehran to suspend enriching uranium that can be used for making nuclear weapons.

The leading Democratic candidates have differed over whether to negotiate directly with Iran. In a July debate, Obama said he would be willing to meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a position criticized by Clinton and others. But front-runners Clinton, Obama and Edwards have all said they would not rule out military action against Iran.

For their part, Republican candidates have said that the new intelligence estimate did not change their view of Iran as a major threat to the United States — a view also held by Bush.

In the Democrats’ debate Tuesday, the focus on foreign-policy issues gave Clinton a chance to bring up what many people believe was the high point of her eight years as first lady — her speech at the 1995 U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. In it, she castigated China over its treatment of women, arguing that women’s rights could no longer be considered separate from human rights. The Chinese government blocked the speech from being heard within China.

As at the Black & Brown Forum here Saturday night, the debate did not provide any landscape-shifting moments. Exchanges among the candidates were polite — but also at times direct, particularly over the recent bill sponsored by Sens. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) that unofficially declared the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

Clinton was the only Democratic candidate to vote for the bill. When asked whether she thought the Revolutionary Guard were “proliferators of mass destruction,” she said “many of us believe that” and suggested that earlier comments by Obama and Edwards about Iran indicated that they did too.

Edwards and Obama responded that they believed Iran was a threat to stability in the Mideast but that the administration was moving toward an unnecessary war.

“What I believe is that this president, who, just a few weeks ago, was talking about World War III, he, the vice president, the neocons have been on a march to possible war with Iran for a long time,” Edwards said. “We know that they’ve prepared contingency plans for a military attack.”

Obama, who missed the Kyl-Lieberman vote in the Senate because he was campaigning in New Hampshire, also drew parallels to the Iraq war buildup.

Now, who was completely right, and just whose heads were so crammed full of cockroach feces that it is utterly unreal.

And then you’ve got the pathological malignent narcissist who was the worst member of the whole bunch of liberal idiots saying he would personally negotiate with the Iranian dictatorship getting elected president.

I cited that article above in one I wrote a year and a half ago about the fact that Hillary Clinton herself had basically concluded that Barack Obama was an abject dumbass whose policy regarding Iran was a completely failed shambles.   But what did I know?

And Iran now knows that the Moron-in-Chief in Washington D.C. is a weak, cowardly, pontificating fool.  And that Obama isn’t going to dare to do a damn thing that will make his liberal base upset, such as stand up for the United States of America against a nation of crazed jihadist nihilistic nutjobs.

The other utterly hillarious thing about this is that the Iranian government terrorists could easily have literally been using guns that BARACK OBAMA and ERIC HOLDER put into the hands of the drug cartels.  Fast and Furious guns have already resulted in the murder of an American Border Patrol agent; what harm would an additional few dozen more have been?

The only reason this news was released is because the Obama administration is implicated in the Fast and Furious gunwalking fiasco up to its scrawny little pencil neck, and they were desperately looking for something to change the conversation.  But instead let’s realize that the Iranian terrorists could easily have paid Mexican drug cartel operatives armed with Obama-Holder guns to kill even more Americans.

If you voted for Barack Obama, you voted for Iran to get nuclear weapons.  You voted for a rogue terrorist state to grow more and more powerful until it started world war three and turned planet earth into a giant nuclear bloodbath.

And you’ll probably going to get what you voted for.

According To Hamas, A Muslim Is Worth Less Than One One-Thousandth Of A Jew

October 11, 2011

Hamas is vile and evil. 

But apparently, they at least recognize their own value (very nearly worthless):

Israel, Hamas agree on prisoner swap to free Shalit
By Jeffrey Heller and Nidal al-Mughrabi | Reuters – 2 hrs 9 mins ago.

JERUSALEM/GAZA (Reuters) – Israel and Gaza’s Hamas Islamist rulers agreed on Tuesday to swap more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for Israeli captive soldier Gilad Shalit, resolving one of the most emotive and intractable issues between them.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, asking his cabinet to approve the lopsided swap and under constant public pressure to bring Shalit home, said the soldier would be reunited with his family “in the coming days.”

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip greeted the agreement, brokered by Egypt and a German mediator, with celebratory gunfire. Hamas confirmed that it only remained to conclude technical arrangements for the exchange.

The breakthrough pact, after many false dawns in years of secret efforts to free Shalit since he was captured in 2006, has no direct bearing on Middle East peace negotiations.

But it was virtually certain to improve the climate for international efforts to restart peace talks.

Prospects for peacemaking have been clouded by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s request for UN recognition of a Palestinian state and Israeli settlement expansion which Abbas has said must stop if negotiations are to begin again.

A source involved in the talks said the long elusive pact had been mediated by Egypt, playing a role which is likely to strengthen Israel’s ties with Cairo, which have suffered since the fall of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak in a revolution this year.

Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal said Israel will release 1,027 prisoners in two stages. Within a week, 450 will be swapped for Shalit and the rest will be freed two months later. Twenty-seven women are among those on the release roster.

It was not immediately clear how many of the prisoners were jailed for attacks that caused Israeli casualties. Under Israeli law, opponents of their release have at least 48 hours to appeal to courts to keep them behind bars.

PUBLIC CAMPAIGNS

In tandem with a public campaign waged by Shalit’s parents for his freedom, relatives of Israelis killed in Palestinian attacks have lobbied Netanyahu not to give in to Hamas by releasing prisoners with blood on their hands.

There are about 6,000 Palestinians prisoners in Israeli jails. They are regarded as heroes in what Palestinians call their struggle against Israeli occupation and quest for statehood.

“We are happy with this great achievement and we thank our God for that. But our happiness is mixed with sorrow because we were not able to gain the freedom of all prisoners,” Meshaal said in a televised address from Damascus.

Israeli television quoted Netanyahu as telling Shalit’s parents that ever since he took office three years ago “I’ve been waiting for the chance to make this telephone call” to inform them of the deal.

Shalit’s family, which has maintained a vigil in a protest tent near Netanyahu’s Jerusalem home for months, had accused him of not doing enough to secure his release.

Announcing to his cabinet, and television cameras, that a deal had been signed earlier in the day, Netanyahu said he feared time was running out for Shalit amid political upheaval in the Arab world.

“I believe we have reached the best agreement possible at this time when storms are raging in the Middle East. I don’t know if we could have reached a better agreement, or even achieved one at all, in the near future,” he said.

“It’s possible that this window of opportunity would have closed for good and we never would have brought Gilad home.”

The wife of Marwan Barghouti, a charismatic activist seen as a future Palestinian leader, told Reuters in the West Bank that she was eagerly awaiting word that he will be included in the prisoner swap.

In Gaza the families of men jailed for life by Israel waited to see if their names would be on the list.

Israel has carried out several lopsided prisoner swaps in the past, notably in 1985 when hundreds of Palestinian prisoners were freed in exchange for several soldiers captured by a guerrilla group in Lebanon.

The ordeal of Shalit, a fresh-faced corporal, transfixed Israel after the tank gunner was captured by militants who tunneled their way out of Gaza and then forced him back over the border.

He was 19 at the time and had begun his mandatory three-year army service nearly a year previously.

Shalit, who also holds French citizenship, was last seen in a videotape released by his captors in September 2009 showing him looking pale and thin.

He received no visits from the International Committee of the Red Cross, despite many appeals.

So there you have it.  According to Muslims themselves, a Muslim is worth LESS than 1/1000th of a Jew.  Or, conversly, a garden variety Jew is worth more than one thousand times more than a Muslim.

Even Muslims themselves readily admit that they are very nearly worthless as human beings.

Islam: the religion that makes you worth 1/1,027th of an actual human being.

There’s a nice little statement of ontology for you.

If The Occupy Wall Street Crowd Had Any Integrity, They’d Be Attacking Obama (Who Has Raked In More Wall Street $ Than ANYONE)

October 11, 2011

I don’t want anyone to get hurt, so please make sure your seated before you read the next line.

The Occupy Wall Street mob, you know, the (what was that word Nancy Pelosi used to denounce the Tea Party movement?) Astroturfers manufactured by George Soros and Big Labor, are a giant gathering of hypocrites.

I know.  It’s just amazing, isn’t it?

But with all the outrage being directed at “Wall Street fat cats,” here is the actual truth:

Guess which President has raked in the most Wall Street bucks in a generation?
posted at 11:25 am on October 10, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

While the professional Left trashes Wall Street, they might want to consider how their current President got elected. The Sunlight Foundation reports that Barack Obama didn’t just win the Wall Street sweepstakes in 2008 over John McCain — he’s done better at getting Wall Street cash than any other President in the last 20 years:

Despite his rhetorical attacks on Wall Street, a study by the Sunlight Foundation’s Influence Project shows that President Barack Obama has received more money from Wall Street than any other politician over the past 20 years, including former President George W. Bush.

In 2008, Wall Street’s largesse accounted for 20 percent of Obama’s total take, according to Reuters. …

By the end of Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, executives and others connected with Wall Street firms, such as Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Citigroup, UBS AG, JPMorgan Chase, and Morgan Stanley, poured nearly $15.8 million into his coffers.

Goldman Sachs contributed slightly over $1 million to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, compared with a little over $394,600 to the 2004 Bush campaign. Citigroup gave $736,771 to Obama in 2008, compared with $320,820 to Bush in 2004. Executives and others connected with the Swiss bank UBS AG donated $539,424 to Obama’s 2008 campaign, compared with $416,950 to Bush in 2004. And JP Morgan Chase gave Obama’s campaign $808,799 in 2008, but did not show up among Bush’s top donors in 2004, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

That’s not limited to the 2008 cycle, either. The same people under attack from Obama’s political allies are still lining up to dump cash on the incumbent — or at least were:

So far Wall Street has raised $7.2 million in the current electoral cycle for President Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Obama’s 2012 Wall Street bundlers include people like Jon Corzine, former Goldman Sachs CEO and former New Jersey governor; Azita Raji, a former investment banker for JP Morgan; and Charles Myers, an executive with the investment bank Evercore Partners.

Those figures predate Obama’s sudden class-warrior pose of the last four weeks, though. After watching Obama incite these demonstrations aimed at intimidating investors and financiers, I wonder just how anxious they will be to continue funding Obama’s campaign. That impact won’t be clear until the 4th quarter numbers are released in January, but don’t be surprised if all of these “Occupy” protests don’t push those contributors towards an eventual Republican nominee — or maybe even a particular contender, perhaps one that comes from their world. Hmmmm.

In my maiden column for The Fiscal Times, I look at the eruption of class warfare in American politics and the irony of a generation shaped by Steve Jobs attacking the very investor market and private-property rights that made Jobs’ success possible:

As we honor Jobs, there is no small irony in the fact that Wall Street protests are coinciding with his death. Jobs was hardly a financial wallflower: Besides his extensive holdings in and control of Apple (part of a fortune estimated at more than $6.5 billion to $7 billion by Forbes), he was the largest individual shareholder in Disney, thanks to the sale of Pixar a few years ago, and a member of its board as well. It’s likely that a large number of the youthful protesters in the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations rely on products Jobs either invented or improved; many might even be using iPhones and iPads to help coordinate their efforts. None of that would have been possible without capital risk-taking and Wall Street investment in Apple, among other companies.

Think of the world before Jobs, before a handful of bright young minds began exploring the potential of small, relatively inexpensive computing. Communication meant either writing letters or picking up a phone – with service largely provided by a national monopoly. Having access to research materials meant buying an encyclopedia and subscribing to yearbooks for updates to already obsolete data, or spending plenty of time at the local library. News from around the world came to most people either from the only major newspaper in town or one of three national broadcast networks. Social networking meant going to cocktail parties and company events.

Compared with today, that sounds positively medieval, doesn’t it? …

Contrast the explosive success of personal computing, which lacked heavy government direction, to that of solar and wind power. Federal and state governments have subsidized and regulated these industries for decades, and they have deliberately handicapped other traditional energy-production technologies to make the renewables more competitive. According to Reason Magazine, each megawatt-hour of energy produced by wind and solar power in 2007 was delivered via more than $20 ofgovernment subsidies, as opposed to $2 for nuclear power and a dollar or less for coal and oil – most of those in the form of tax incentives rather than direct subsidies.

With all of that effort over several decades, are we closer to mass-produced solar and wind power? Have these industries even matured to the point of producing jobs? The industries that Jobs, Gates, and their colleagues created through private-sector innovation based on technological success employ millions of people around the world. In 2009, President Obama got $38.6 billion in job-stimulus funding to create a “green jobs” explosion that would also employ millions. Thirty months later, we have spent $17.2 billion of those funds, and created less than 3,600 jobs, roughly at a cost of $4.85 million per position.

Capital markets drive innovation, create and expand industries, and can rapidly improve our lives — if we keep government out of the way, and certainly out of the position of distorting markets to favor losers over productive use of capital and especially redistributive policies. As Wall Street has learned, three years of accelerated redistribution didn’t satisfy the Left — it only drove them to demand more of it. Time to end the war on capital by defunding the anti-capitalists.

Barack Obama is owned lock, stock and barell by the very people whom the Occupy Wall Street fascists say are most responsible.  And the funniest thing of all is they’re going to go vote in 2012 for the very same corrupt bastards who brought America down and who paid Obama to KEEP bringing America down.

It would be funny if it wasn’t causing so much destruction to the formerly greatest nation in the history of the world.

Triumph For Fascism: China ‘Retroactively Aborts’ Forced Abortion Opponent

October 10, 2011

Coming soon to America:

China Forced Abortion Opponent Chen Guangcheng Possibly Killed
by Steven Ertelt | Beijing, China | LifeNews.com | 10/7/11 12:01 PM

Reports are emerging today that Chan Guangcheng, a prominent human rights activist who had led the fight against forced abortions under the one-child policy in China, may have been killed by Chinese officials.

Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, informed LifeNews today that ominous reports regarding blind lawyer Chen Guangcheng have emerged this week and, according to Radio Free Asia, Chinese authorities detained a group of at least nine human rights activists trying to visit Chen.

On Wednesday, many members of the group were cut off from communication and, according to a report by Canyu, Shandong authorities shot at these activists. Voice of America reports that villagers told it “Chen is dead already,” but the media outlet is attempting to verify that claim.

“We are alarmed at the report that villagers are saying that Chen is already dead,” Littlejohn told LifeNews. “If Chen is dead, then the Chinese Communist Party is fully responsible for killing him through torture, denial of medical treatment and slow starvation. If Chen is alive, we urgently demand that he and his family be released immediately and unconditionally, for medical evaluation and treatment.”

Bob Fu, President of the China Aid Association, commented as well, and said, “We are concerned about the report that authorities have shot at the activists trying to visit Chen.”

“These netizens display the same brave spirit that Chen has, and they should continue in their courageous attempts to see him,” he added.

Fu said Gao Zhisheng, another human rights lawyer, has disappeared as well.

“Gao and Chen are shining lights for human rights in China. Their shocking torture and Gao’s disappearance demonstrate the CCP’s willingness to trample on the rule of law,” Fu continued.

Chen exposed the systematic use of forced abortion and involuntary sterilization in implementing China’s One Child Policy. Time Magazine named him in its list of “2006′s Top 100 People Who Shape Our World,” in the category of “Heroes and Pioneers.” He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Earlier this year, the House of Representatives unanimously approved an amendment to its appropriations bill that provides support for Chen Guangcheng, the blind attorney who has campaigned against forced abortions in China. Chen, as LifeNews.com has repeatedly profiled, was jailed for years after officials produced bogus charges. Since his release from prison, Chen and his family have been placed under house arrest and prevented from accessing the outside world and obtaining proper medical care. Human rights groups have been pressing Chen’s case with lawmakers in Congress and got help from pro-life Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey.

Smith proposed a successful amendment in support of Chen and his wife that lawmakers added to the State Department 2012 appropriation bill.

Chen exposed the fact that there were 130,000 forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations in Linyi County in 2005. The Chinese Communist Party imprisoned Chen for four years and three months and has kept him and his family under strict house arrest since September, 2010. His health has been declining because of malnutrition, intestinal illness, repeated torture and the denial of medical treatment.

We’re not that far away from similar policies and similar brutality.

Once you deny the essential value of an innocent human being – whether that human being is in the womb or anywhere else – it is a very fine line to cross to get to where China is today.

The Word of God can’t be any more clear:

“Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man” (Genesis 9:6)

What does it mean to be in “the image of God”?  Does it mean to have a fully developed human body?  Does God have a body?

Clearly it does not.  God doesn’t have a body; God is too big to have a body.  Rather, God is a soul.  It was our souls that were created in God’s image.  Our bodies that continue to form and develop are animal bodies that have nothing whatsoever to do with the imago Dei.  And it is the imago Dei that makes murdering a human being a moral crime.

When exactly does the soul form in a human being?  Christian philosophers who actually take the Word of God as being God’s Word are rather clear: the soul of a baby is present from the very moment of conception, when the seed of the man and the egg of the woman join and become one individual (or in the case of twins, etc., two or more individuals).  It’s actually a fascinating discussion; DNA is akin to the words of a language, with the proteins serving as individual letters.  A individual’s DNA is very much like an instruction manual that says how to put an organism together.  But as any parent who has ever tried to assemble a children’s bike knows, the instructions can’t put anything together by themselves.  You need something else to read the instructions and assemble the being.  DNA needs a driver or it is useless.

Think of a marching band forming the letters of the university (e.g., “UCLA”).  Does it simply happen by random chance?  Obviously not.  Somebody has to plan and coordinate and direct that process.  And many philosophers such as J.P. Moreland, Scott Rae and others argue that this unfolding process is directed by none other than the soul.  Something non-physical is directing and guiding this process.  We are becoming what our souls direct us to become according to our unique DNA instructions.

That soul must exist prior to the body in order to perform that role.

The Democrat Party and every single Democrat who has ever voted for Democrats or the Democrat Party have murdered fifty-four MILLION innocent human souls who were made in God’s image.  One day you will all pay for your moral crime the same way God demanded: with your own lives.

In point of fact, even according to the most basic principles of naturalist science, you are murdering human beings:

I have mentioned abortion several times in this article. What does science really say about abortion?

To put it simply, science properly understood tells us that human embryos are human by virtue of their parents, and beings by virtue of the fact that they are living things (they grow, feed,respire,excrete,respond to stimuli, and reproduce): they are human beings. Science further tells us that human embryos are NOT part of their mother’s bodies; rather, they are clearly unique genetic individuals, with their own unique human DNA. Moreover, scientifically, every single living thing is rigorously classified by the science of taxonomy into the categories of: Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. And a human embryo – an unborn baby – is of the kingdom Animalia, of the phylum Chordata, of the class Mammalia, of the order Primates, of the family Hominidae, of the genus Homo, and of the species sapiens. Same as you, same as me, and same as any human being who has spent a lifetime living outside of his or her mother’s womb.

We recently took a giant step toward this in the passage of ObamaCare.

We don’t have “a death panel.”  The fact of the matter is that we have 160 death panels:

D. James Kennedy prophetically explained what will happen next:

Watch out, Grandma and Grandpa!  Because the generation that survived abortion will one day come after you!”

Get ready, they’re coming.  As the costs of health care soar even faster because of the corrupt boondoggle known as ObamaCare takes over a system that had already been rendered inefficient by excessive government interference, the costs will skyrocket.  And it will become a rather painfully obvious fact that old people consume the vast majority of health care resources.  And the next inevitable step is to say, “Time to die with dignity, Grandma.”

The ObamaCare snowball is going to very quickly become an avalanche.  And the most demonic policy (abortion) in the history of the human race will spread like a plague – just as it did in Nazi Germany, and just as it is doing in China as we speak.

Harry Reid And Senate Democrats Invoke ‘Nuclear Option’ In Pursuit Of Their Goal To ‘Fundamentally Transform’ American Democracy

October 8, 2011

Obama said it:

After all of Obama’s stunning lies, that’s the only promise that he’s kept.  He has fundamentally transformed the United States of America.

Democrats have already destroyed the American economy and turned our once-great capitalist system into a state planned economy.  Next on their gun sights is the American democratic political system itself.

We recently had the Democrat governor from the state of North Carolina openly advocate for fascism, stating:

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”

And, heck, if we don’t even need to have elections, we surely don’t need to have any of the rest of the pretenses of a democratic system, right?

Particularly when we have a president who can say to racist Hispanic group La Raza (which means “The Race”) one month:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

And then do the exact same thing he had just admitted was un-American, anti-democratic AND unconstitutional the next month.

The idea of doing things on his own – and by the Democrat Party abandoning American democracy – was apparently way too tempting for these fascists, indeed.

What else can we say but, “Yes We Can!”  We can truly poison America and everything it stands for.  And we can do it in just four short years.

Here is the new dose of outrage:

Reid triggers ‘nuclear option’ to change Senate rules, end repeat filibusters
By Alexander Bolton – 10/06/11 09:10 PM ET

In a shocking development Thursday evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) triggered a rarely used procedural option informally called the “nuclear option” to change the Senate rules.

Reid and 50 members of his caucus voted to change Senate rules unilaterally to prevent Republicans from forcing votes on uncomfortable amendments after the chamber has voted to move to final passage of a bill.

Reid’s coup passed by a vote of 51-48, leaving Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fuming.

The surprise move stunned Republicans, who did not expect Reid to bring heavy artillery to what had been a humdrum knife fight over amendments to China currency legislation.

The Democratic leader had become fed up with Republican demands for votes on motions to suspend the rules after the Senate had voted to limit debate earlier in the day.

McConnell had threatened such a motion to force a vote on the original version of President Obama’s jobs package, which many Democrats don’t like because it would limit tax deductions for families earning over $250,000. The jobs package would have been considered as an amendment.

McConnell wanted to embarrass the president by demonstrating how few Democrats are willing to support his jobs plan as first drafted. (Senate Democrats have since rewritten the jobs package to pay for its stimulus provisions with a 5.6 surtax on income over $1 million.)

Reid’s move strips the minority of the power of forcing politically-charged procedural votes after the Senate has voted to cut off a potential filibuster and move to a final vote, which the Senate did on the China measure Tuesday morning, 62-38.

Reid said motions to suspend the rules after the Senate votes to end debate — motions which do not need unanimous consent — are tantamount to a renewed filibuster after a cloture vote.

“The Republican Senators have filed nine motions to suspend the rules to consider further amendments but the same logic that allows for nine such motions could lead to the consideration of 99 such amendments,” Reid argued before springing his move.

Reid said Republicans could force an “endless vote-a-rama” after the Senate has voted to move to final passage.

He said this contradicts the rule the Senate adopted 32 years ago.

“This potential for filibuster by amendment is exactly the circumstance that the Senate sought to end by its 1979 amendments,” Reid said.

Reid appealed a ruling from the chair that McConnell did not need unanimous consent to force a vote on his motion.

Let’s look at some of Obama’s rules before he became dictator and abandon all rules and all principle:

  • My understanding of the Senate is, is that you need 60 votes to get something significant to happen, which means that Democrats and Republicans have to ask the question: Do we have the will to move an American agenda forward, not a Democratic or Republican agenda forward?“–CBS-TV election night interview, Nov. 2, 2004
  • You’ve got to break out of what I call the sort of 50-plus-1 pattern of presidential politics. Maybe you eke out a victory of 50 plus 1, but you can’t govern. You know, you get Air Force One–I mean, there are a lot of nice perks, but you can’t deliver on health care. We’re not going to pass universal health care with a 50-plus-1 strategy.”–interview with the Concord (N.H.) Monitor, Oct. 9, 2007

And the conclusion:

[Obama] “explained almost as well as we can why what he is doing now–pushing Congress to “transform the country” precisely via a “50-plus-1″ strategy, is so foolish and dangerous.”

But “foolish and dangerous” – along with hypocrisy – are the defining elements of the modern Democrat Party.  Each of these is a sine qua non – a “that without which” the modern Democrat Party could not exist.

It’s true Republicans considered the filibuster – when Democrats obstructed everything under the sun – but the fact of the matter is that they DIDN’T DO IT.

What did Democrats say then?

Republicans want to blow up 200 years of Senate history and change the rules simply because they aren’t getting their way…” said (at that time) Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean.

Then Senator Hillary Clinton said:

Hillary Clinton 5/23/2005: “So this president has come to the majority here in the Senate and basically said ‘change the rules.’ ‘Do it the way I want it done.’ And I guess there just weren’t very many voices on the other side of the isle that acted the way previous generations of senators have acted and said ‘Mr. President we are with you, we support you, but that’s a bridge too far we can’t go there.’ You have to restrain yourself Mr. President.”

But only BUSH must restrain himself.  To suggest that Obama should restrain himself is apparently “racist.”

Charles Schumer went farther yet:

Charles Schumer 5/18/2005: “We are on the precipice of a crisis, a constitutional crisis. The checks and balances which have been at the core of this Republic are about to be evaporated by the nuclear option. The checks and balances which say that if you get 51% of the vote you don’t get your way 100% of the time. It is amazing it’s almost a temper tantrum.”

But Democrat temper tantrums are peachy dandy.

Schumer also said:

Charles Schumer 5/23/2005: “They want their way every single time. And they will change the rules, break the rules, and misread the constitution so that they will get their way.”

Well, what did Harry Reid say about the idea of the nuclear option?

Harry Reid 5/18/2005: “Mr. President the right to extended debate is never more important than the one party who controls congress and the white house. In these cases the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government.”

And remember, Republicans DID NOT DO what DEMOCRATS JUST DID.

Joe Biden had the most prescient words as to what this means for the future:

Joe Biden 5/23/05: “I say to my friends on the Republican side you may own the field right now buy you won’t own it forever I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”

Have I remembered to remind my readers that the Republican Party did not actually do this “nuclear option” thing?  Only Democrats are that genuinely evil.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia scolded ACLU President Nadine Strossen at the conclusion of a debate over her views on the “living breathing Constitution” that allows her side to impose their own will on the founders intent, and warned:

Someday, Nadine, you’re going to get a very conservative Supreme Court … And you’re going to regret what you’ve done.”

Republicans are going to regain their power in the new “fundamentally transformed” landscape of the American political system.  We will rise up in vengeance and anger.  A president above the Constitution and the rule of law?  A Congress that shuts down debate?  You Democrats wanted it, you sowed the wind, and soon you will reap the whirlwind.

Which is to say, when Republicans pass the “Hunt Every Democrat Down With Dogs And Burn Them Alive Act,” don’t you complain.  Because we’ll only be doing what you started under Obama and the tyrant fascist Democrat majority.

If you are a Democrat, you are un-American.  You are anti-democratic.  You piss on the American Constitution.  And that’s just according to what you yourselves said only a few years ago about what you just did.

It is no surprise that the American flag creates Republicans.  It is no surprise that – overwhelmingly – only Republicans celebrate the Fourth of July and the Independence it stands for.

You Democrats are an abject disgrace.  You are a clear and present danger to the United States of America.  And you either need to change your ways damn quick or we’ll going to rise up and come after you with a vengeance.  And we’re going to use your own damn lawlessness disregard for the rule of law to do it.

I said it on November 6, 2008, only two days after the “fundamentally transforming” election: “Do Unto Obama As Liberals Did Unto Bush.”

It’s coming, Democrats.  And no one in human history will deserve it as much as you, because you lived in a society that used to be democratic and you personally voted for the hell that would come to sweep you away.

Housing Under Obama Worst Since Great Depression – With Poor And Minorities Most Screwed By ‘Hope And Change’

October 7, 2011

Obama rammed his “stimulus” through Congress on lies and false promises.

Obama said that virtually all economists were on his side.  That was a flat-out lie.  Obama made promises based on his lies that are now documented to have been completely false.

And this truly evil man who represents God damn America is trying to do the same thing all over again.  He’s singing the same tune and making the same lying promises all over again.

The saddest thing about Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the American economy and way of life is that the people Obama cynically and deceitfully claimed he was defending are in fact the ones who are being the most truly screwed by Obama’s policies.

And it just never ends: Obama crushes and oppresses the poor and the helpless – blames the Republicans for the failures that are completely his fault and which were taking place well before Republicans had any power to fight Obama’s demonic policies at all – and then deceitfully runs against Republicans on a campaign that is pure demagoguery.  As just one example, Obama is out blaming Republicans for stopping his jobs bill – which is just the same damn failed stimulus by a different name But it is DEMOCRATS who are blocking Obama’s jobs bill and Republicans who want it to come up for a vote.  And Obama is the worst kind of liar for falsely claiming otherwise.

And here we go again.  THE most evil president in American history is destroying America.  And it’s hard to imagine how Obama is going to blame his double-dip recession (DEPRESSION) that entirely happened on HIS WATCH on somebody else.  God damn America is going to go down hard until we rid ourselves of this wicked man.

By the way: This article was written by a fool, for what it’s worth. The third paragraph in the article claims the reason for this terrible state of affairs is “reduced government involvement.” But consider the final sentence in this New York Times article:

“Fannie, Freddie and F.H.A. buy or insure about 97 percent of residential mortgages.”

Can you understand how truly full of stupid it is to argue that the government hasn’t been “involved enough” with this wretched fiasco when in fact they control 97 percent of the hell they inflicted on us with their hellish policies?!?!?  Ninety-seven percent wasn’t enough government control, you jackass?!?!?  What, ninety-nine percent would have been even better?  One hundred percent government takeover would have fixed our inadequately socialized system for sure?!?!?

Census: Housing bust worst since Great Depression
By HOPE YEN
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The American dream of homeownership has felt its biggest drop since the Great Depression, according to new 2010 census figures released Thursday.

The analysis by the Census Bureau found the homeownership rate fell to 65.1 percent last year. While that level remains the second highest decennial rate, analysts say the U.S. may never return to its mid-decade housing boom peak in which nearly 70 percent of occupied households were owned by their residents.

The reason: a longer-term economic reality of tighter credit, prolonged job losses and reduced government involvement.

Unemployed young adults are least likely to own, delaying first-time home purchases to live with Mom and Dad. Middle-aged adults 35-64, mostly homeowners who were hit with mortgage foreclosures or bankruptcy after the housing bust in 2006, are at their lowest levels of ownership in decades.

Measured by race, the homeownership gap between whites and blacks is now at its widest since 1960, wiping out more than 40 years of gains.

“The changes now taking place are mind-boggling: the housing market has completely crashed and attitudes toward housing are shifting from owning to renting,” said Patrick Newport, economist with IHS Global Insight. “While 10 years ago owning a home was the American Dream, I’m not sure a lot of people still think that way.”

He noted the now-diminished roles of mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which for decades at the urging of government helped enable loans to borrowers with poor credit, many of them minorities. In a shift, the Obama administration earlier this year said it would move from a longtime government focus on promoting homeownership for all and instead steer people with low incomes toward renting where appropriate.

Congress has been considering whether to eliminate the federal tax deduction for home-mortgage interest, a popular incentive to home-buying that’s been in place since the early 20th century.

Given depressed housing values that could continue for at least another four to five years, it now makes more sense in most cases to rent than own, Newport said.

Nationwide, the homeownership rate fell to 65.1 percent – or 76 million occupied housing units that were owned by their residents – from 66.2 percent in 2000. That drop-off of 1.1 percentage points is the largest since 1940, when homeownership plummeted 4.2 percentage points during the Great Depression to a low of 43.6 percent.

Since 1940, the number of Americans owning homes had steadily increased in each decennial census due to a mostly booming economy, favorable tax laws and easier financing. The one exception had been 1980-1990, when ownership remained unchanged at 64.2 percent.

Broken down by state, 41 states saw declines in home ownership since 2000, many of them in the South and West where foreclosures were more common. They were led by South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and North Carolina. On the other end of the scale, states with higher shares of vacation homes owned by affluent baby boomers saw small increases in ownership, including New Hampshire, Hawaii, Alaska and Vermont.

The U.S. housing crisis is far worse than the experience in most Western industrialized nations, which, unlike the U.S., did not foster markets of subprime lending to promote homeownership. The U.S. continues to maintain a relatively high rate of homeownership, surpassed only by countries such as Spain, Ireland, Australia and England.

“In the U.S., there’s still a strong cultural pull toward homeownership, because in normal times it’s always been seen as a way to build net worth and equity,” said Dan McCue, research manager at Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. But with many former homeowners now renting, he said, clearly that dynamic has changed: “It puts a renewed focus on rentals, and on ways to create new opportunities for low-income households to build their wealth.”

Blacks, who as a whole have lower income and higher unemployment than other groups, were particularly set back by the housing bust. Their homeownership rate fell from 46.3 percent in 2000 to 44.3 percent; among whites, the rate dipped slightly from 72.4 percent to 72.2 percent. Whites are now on average 1.63 times more likely than blacks to own a home, the widest gap since 1960.

Among all minorities, homeownership in the U.S. rose slightly over the past decade to 48 percent from 47.4 percent, boosted by more home buying among the younger and larger Hispanic population. Hispanic homeownership increased from 45.7 percent to 47.3 percent.

In all, nearly 44 percent of all renters in the U.S. are minorities, compared with only 22 percent of homeowners. Broken down by state, minorities make up more than half of all renters in 10 states and the District of Columbia, up from 6 in 2000 – with the new states being New York, New Jersey, Mississippi, Louisiana and New Mexico.

“There is no doubt that a large part of the white-minority economic divide is reflected in the disproportionate minority representation among the nation’s renters,” said William H. Frey, a demographer at Brookings Institution, who analyzed the race data. “The recent financial crises, including large numbers of subprime loans to African Americans, has dramatically widened the white-black homeownership disparity.”

Other census findings:

-Homeownership rates decreased in each region of the country over the last decade. Midwesterners were most likely to own a house, at 69.2 percent, followed by Southerners at 66.7 percent, Northeasterners at 62.2 percent and Westerners at 60.5 percent.

-For the fourth census in a row, West Virginia had the highest homeownership rate, at 73.4 percent. The District of Columbia, with its high share of single twenty- and thirty-somethings who rent, had the lowest at 42 percent.

-While homeowners were the majority in most of the nation’s metropolitan areas, they were outnumbered by renters in many of the nation’s largest cities. They included New York City, where renters made up 69 percent of households, Los Angeles at 61.8 percent, Chicago at 55.1 percent and Houston at 54.6 percent.

By age, the highest ownership rate nationwide is for those 65 and older, about 77.5 percent. Older Americans are more likely to own their homes debt-free and thus be less exposed to the foreclosure crisis. Still, their homeownership rate is down slightly from a 2000 peak of 78.1 percent.

Among adults 34 and younger, homeownership was nearly 40 percent, the highest since the mid-1990s. For adults in the 35-44, 45-54 and 55-64 age groups, homeownership rates fell to their lowest since at least 1980.

Peter Francese, founder of American Demographics magazine who is now analyst for the MetLife Mature Market Institute, believes Americans aren’t completely giving up on homeownership. He noted millions of young adults are delaying home-buying while they temporarily double-up with their parents, representing pent-up demand for houses that will surface once the job market begins to recover.

If Democrats actually give one flying damn about the poor or about minorities, it is long past time that they threw this failure out on his dumbo ears.

I call them “DemonCrats,” for “Demonic Bureaucrats.”  These people impose their Marxist-fascist government planned economy, and then they simply cannot understand why it keeps failing over and over and over again.

What happens again and again?  The Demonic Bureaucrats impose stupid and immoral policies on the private sector to force them to do incredibly harmful and counterproductive things such as make home loans to people who cannot possibly afford them.  And then when the private sector figures out a way to somehow make money on the latest failed government takeover, the DemonCrats blame the private sector.  Thus Democrats force the banks to make stupid loans to people who could not pay those loans back, forcing the banks to pursue dangerous policies in pursuit of the profits they exist to pursue.  And then when everything goes to hell, the same Democrats who set up the entire disaster and caused the whole mess invariably point their fingers at the people they forced into an impossible situation to begin with.

And Democrats will continue to do this until the American people either wise up and drive them out of power, or until America collapses.  Whichever comes first.
