Remember The Firestorm Over Mitt Romney’s 47 Percent Remark? Hillary’s Deplorables Remark Was DEPLORABLE

September 12, 2016

First the story as the New York Times puts it:

Hillary Clinton Calls Many Trump Backers ‘Deplorables,’ and G.O.P. Pounces
By AMY CHOZICKSEPT. 10, 2016

Republicans from the presidential ticket on down pounced Saturday on Hillary Clinton’s remarks that half of Donald J. Trump’s supporters fit into a “basket of deplorables,” saying it showed she was out of touch with an economically hard-hit electorate.

Mrs. Clinton’s comments Friday night, which were a variation of a sentiment she has expressed in other settings recently, came at a fund-raiser in Manhattan.

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” she said to applause and laughter. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

By Saturday morning, #BasketofDeplorables was trending on Twitter as Mr. Trump’s campaign demanded an apology. His supporters hoped to use the remark as evidence that Mrs. Clinton cannot connect to the voters she hopes to represent as president.

“Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the polls!” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

By Saturday afternoon, Mrs. Clinton had acknowledged her stumble. “Last night I was ‘grossly generalistic,’ and that’s never a good idea,” she said in a statement. “I regret saying ‘half’ — that was wrong.” […]

The first thing I can’t help but notice is the title the New York Slimes chose to run this story under, fixating on the “… and the G.O.P. Pounces” part.  That signifies that they are saying that this is just political posturing; Hillary didn’t say anything truly bad.  It’s like her emails and her illegal secret server and her Clinton Foundation pay-for-play proofs; nothing really wrong.  It must just be Republicans going after her over sheer politics.  So let’s move on.

But now let’s see how the same New York Slimes covered Mitt Romney when he did something that actually wasn’t as bad either in terms of numbers (he said 47%; she said HALF) or nastiness (he insinuated that poor people would vote to get stuff without demonizing their characters; she said half of the American people are EVIL):

In Video Clip, Romney Calls 47% ‘Dependent’ and Feeling Entitled
By Michael D. Shear and Michael Barbaro
September 17, 2012 6:51 pm
12:26 a.m., Sept. 18 | Updated
WASHINGTON — During a private reception with wealthy donors this year, Mitt Romney described almost half of Americans as “people who pay no income tax” and are “dependent upon government.” Those voters, he said, would probably support  President Obama because they believe they are “victims” who are “entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”
In a brief and hastily called news conference Monday just after 10 p.m., Mr. Romney acknowledged having made the blunt political and cultural assessment, saying it was “not elegantly stated,” but he stood by the substance of the remarks, insisting that he had made similar observations in public without generating controversy.
The video of Mr. Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, was made in May, offering a rare glimpse of his personal views. Mr. Romney told reporters that he had been “speaking off the cuff in response to a question” at the fund-raiser, and said he wanted “to help all Americans — all Americans — have a bright, prosperous future.”
Democrats quickly condemned the remarks as insensitive, and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused Mr. Romney of having “disdainfully written off half the nation.”
The video surfaced as the campaign enters its final 50 days and as Mr.  Romney sought to restart his campaign with new ads and new messaging, in response to calls in his campaign and from outside for him to be more specific about how his policies would fix the nation’s economy and help the middle class.
Now, the video has raised the possibility that Mr. Romney’s campaign will be sidetracked, with attention focused again on his proposed tax cuts for the wealthy, the release of his personal tax returns and his ability to connect with middle-class voters. With its unvarnished language, the video seems to undermine what aides have argued is an enduring attribute that would appeal to independent voters: a sense that Mr. Romney is, at base, an empathetic and caring man.

First of all, notice in the title of the article there is no qualifying “… and Democrats Pounce.”  Because on the leftist warped narrative, ONLY Republicans are capable of partisan politics.  When a Republican is outraged, it is because they are playing politics; when a Democrat is outraged, it is only and always because Republicans are evil.

But second of all, I want you to notice that whether you like Romney’s remarks or not, HE WAS DEALING WITH SIMPLE FACTS.  Whereas Hillary Clinton deals only with demonic slander and hate.  She doesn’t have a statistic to cite (47% of Trump supporters have physically beaten or lynched a black man…”) because there AREN’T any and because the ONLY people who have physically beaten or lynched ANYONE in this campaign have been DEMOCRATS attacking Republican Trump supporters.

The New York Times’ question – “the video has raised the possibility that Mr. Romney’s campaign will be sidetracked” – was nothing short of a self-fulfilling prophecy stating in advance their intent to do precisely that.  Many experts believe it was that “47 percent” comment that ended Romney’s presidency.  Which was exactly what the mainstream media tried to do by framing the question that way over and over.  And look at that Bloomberg article where they just flat-out state it: “Today Mitt Romney Lost the Election.”

Mitt Romney talked about a FACT relating to 47% of the Democrat Party base; Hillary Clinton talked about a SLANDER of HALF of the Republican base.  In a fair, objective world, Bloomberg would be writing the article titled, “Today Hillary Clinton Lost the Election.”  But you know full damn well they won’t; because to be a “journalist” today is to be a liar who looks at every story and asks, “How do I twist this, slant this, pervert this to my ideology?”

To be a Democrat you have to HAVE a twisted and perverted ideology.  And you need professionally-trained experts in deceit to rewrite the news for the people to get them to swallow those lies.

Hillary Clinton apologized, we’re told.  But really?  She doesn’t apologize for claiming that Trump supporters are racist; she apologizes for suggesting that “half” of them are.  You know, when maybe only “47 percent” are racist.

It was an ugly comment from an ugly human being, a human being who is now proven to be pathologically unfit for the presidency by ANY measurement.

And yeah, Trump is pounding on it the SAME way Obama pounded Romney:

“People like you, you and YOU ‘deplorable,'” the ad correctly points out.

Trump said:

“At first I thought it wasn’t within the realm of possible that she said it,” he said. “She doubled up, because it was said with such anger, such unbelievable anger, and I think this is the biggest mistake of the political season. I really do. When I saw this in its full form, and I saw the anger with which she said it, the way she spoke, I think it’s the single biggest mistake of the political season.” […]

“You cannot run for president if you have such contempt in your heart for the American voter,” she said. “You can’t lead this nation if you have such a low opinion of its citizens.”

In larger context, Trump said in his speech today:

All across this country, I’ve met so many incredible members of both our military and law enforcement community. There’s nothing I’ve enjoyed more than the time I’ve spent with our service members, police officers, and also our firefighters and paramedics.

They embody the goodness and decency of our country.

I was thus deeply shocked and alarmed this Friday to hear my opponent attack, slander, smear and demean these wonderful, amazing people who are supporting our campaign.

Our support comes from every part of America, and every walk of life. We have the support of cops and soldiers, carpenters and welders, the young and the old, and millions of working class families who just want a better future.

These were the people Hillary Clinton so viciously demonized. These were among the countless Americans that Hillary Clinton called deplorable, irredeemable and un-American. She called these patriotic men and women every vile name in the book – she called them racist, sexist, xenophobic, and Islamaphobic.

She called them a “basket of deplorables” in both a speech and an interview. She divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings.

Hillary Clinton made these comments at one of her high-dollar fundraisers in Wall Street.

She and her wealthy donors all had a good laugh. They were laughing at the very people who pave the roads she drives on, paint the buildings she speaks in, and keep the lights on in her auditorium.

Hillary Clinton is an insider, supported by powerful insiders, attacking Americans who have no political power.

Hillary Clinton spoke with hatred and derision for the people who make this country run.

She spoke with contempt for the people who thanklessly follow the rules, pay their taxes, and scratch out a living for their families.

While Hillary Clinton lives a sequestered life behind gates and walls and guards, she mocks and demeans hardworking Americans who only want their own families to enjoy a fraction of the security enjoyed by our politicians.

After months of hiding from the press, Hillary Clinton has revealed her true thoughts.

She revealed herself to be a person who looks down on the proud citizens of our country as subjects for her to rule over.

Her comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as Secretary of State, hide and delete her emails, put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lie to Congress, and sell government favors and access through her Foundation.

It’s the same attitude that explains why Hillary Clinton refuses to take accountability for the deadly disasters she helped to create in Iraq, in Syria and in Libya.

To this day, she still won’t take accountability for her role in unleashing ISIS across the Middle East – or for putting Iran on the path to a nuclear weapon.

Hillary Clinton believes she is above the law, that she is above accountability, and that she is above each and every one of you.

Our campaign is about giving voice to the voiceless. It’s about representing the forgotten men and women of this country.

I’m here to represent everyone, but especially those who are struggling against injustice and unfairness.

I am running so that the powerful can no longer beat up on the powerless. I’m running to take on the special interests, the big donors, and the corrupt political insiders.

I am running to be your voice.

If Mitt Romney disqualified himself to be president, Hillary Clinton FAR MORE disqualified herself to be president.

Not by my standard, but by everyone who votes DEMOCRAT.

And the ONLY reason Democrats will vote for Hillary Clinton now is that they are the WORST sort of people there are, vile, twisted hypocrites who will ALWAYS distort the truth and the facts and reality to suit their warped ideology.

Let me ask the question, “What is the FINAL SOLUTION” to Hillary Clinton’s now-repeated claim that Republicans are a “basket of deplorables”???

I mean, put them in death camps, or maybe Stalinistic re-education centers, right?  We can’t have these hateful, awful people free to just run around with this kind of hate and evil in them.

This has ALWAYS been the invariable, inevitable path of leftism.  The socialist communists were far left wing monsters; the Nazis where every damn bit as socialist and were merely to the “right” of the most far leftist communists.  Hitler offered his Nazism as a “third way” between the communism of one side and the free market laissez-faire capitalism that has always been cherished by conservatives.  NAZI stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party.”  And if there were a “National Socialist American Workers Party,” you can’t be stupid enough not to think these wouldn’t be today’s Democrats.

Two days ago my mother told me about a man offering a solar deal coming to their home.  He had lied when my father asked him if there was any investment required, but it quickly turned out that, yes, there was, because it was a “rent to own” deal.  The man said there was no cost to this program; but that was just a lie to get his foot in the door and try to sell something to a couple of stupid old people.  You know, in a program that wouldn’t exist unless the federal government were so massively subsidizing solar that it is beyond unreal.

After learning the truth, my parents swiftly lost interest.  And the guy turned to politics, asking who they were going to vote for.

My parents said they were going to hold their nose and vote for Trump.  And the guy – who said his wife was Hispanic – immediately launched into his attack.  “What are you going to do when the people who do all the jobs you aren’t willing to do aren’t here?”

He attacked my parents’ religion, asking “Are they as mean as you up above?”

Well, it’s a damn good thing for that turd that I wasn’t there.  Because I would have IMMEDIATELY gone after him as the racist bigot that he is.  What is he saying?  He’s flat-out stating that white people are lazy and indolent and incapable of doing any kind of hard labor.  The Democrats have ALWAYS viewed the world through a vile, racist perspective.  They just can’t help themselves.  And they spent 200 years viciously attacking black people and minorities before concluding, “if you can’t beat them, co-opt them and get them on your plantation a different way.”  And so now it’s just the same racism they’ve always held in reverse: now it’s white people who can’t work.

So now he’s telling us that inferior white people would STARVE because there would be no fitter race to pick their food for them.

My mom says he mentioned the guys who climb up into trees and asked my mom if she’d do that.  Well, damn, you fool turd, my mom is eighty years old!!!  What kind of stupid jackass ARE you?  How many 80-year-old Mexicans are climbing up in trees to trim them for a damn living???

I would have been all in his face screaming, “GET OUT of here, you racist pile of bigoted rodent filth!  We don’t need your kind of race-roach crawling around our home!”

Just as we don’t need Hillary Clinton anywhere near the White House.

Hillary Clinton just proved herself to be unfit for the presidency.  She didn’t prove herself to be unfit by Republican standards; she proved herself to be unfit by the very same standard that was applied against Republicans by Democrats just four years ago.

Every vote for Hillary Clinton is a statement about people who support a part that is nothing but hypocritical to its very core.

Netanyahu And Republicans Rub Obama’s Nose In His Own Filthy Mess

March 18, 2015

We now know why the legion of demons inhabiting Obama’s wicked soul became so rabid when he found out that Republicans had invited Benjamin Netanyahu to speak in a forum where Israel’s plight against Iran would get major attention.  And that is because he knew that if people knew the truth they would begin to turn against his incredibly wicked and foolish foreign policy – and hell, it might even help Netanyahu (whom Obama was actively community organizing against) get reelected such that Israel would continue to have a strong leader rather than the weak puppet Obama wanted there.

There is absolutely no question that Barack Hussein Obama hates the state of Israel.  Oh, yeah, the dishonest mainstream media propagandists would have you believe that it’s really just a personal issue between Obama and Netanyahu (and clearly Netanyahu’s fault for immorally believing that he should represent Israel rather than follow Messiah Obama).

But this pretty much puts the kibosh on that one:

President Barack Hussein Obama, a pathetic creature who is trying to arrange for Iran to develop their own nuclear weapons and who actively sought the defeat of our closest ally in the Middle East, has a tremendous amount of egg on his face. Despite Obama sending his minions to Israel to underline Netanyahu by pumping up the Arab vote via Saul Alinsky-community organizing tactics, Patriots of state of Israel beat back the Leftist Obama-Arab hoards at the ballot box.

And, oh yeah, the same Obama that told us that he couldn’t have the decency to listen to the leader of America’s greatest friend and ally give a speech because he didn’t want to influence the elections was dishonestly trying to influence the elections even as he lied about not wanting to influence the elections:

The Obama campaign strategist who could break the Israeli elections wide open
The group V15, which denies that its motto is ‘anyone but Bibi,’ is working with U.S. political strategist Jeremy Bird to replace the government in March.
By Haaretz   |  Feb. 7, 2015 | 9:11 PM

With the help of American money and a former campaign adviser to President Barack Obama, V15 is trying to replace Israel’s government. The money and organization comes from V15’s partnership with OneVoice….

And on further investigation we find that it’s NOT just Jeremy Bird, but a TEAM of Obama campaign strategists who went over to help turn Israel against Netanyahu:

A team of President Barack Obama’s political operatives arrived in Israel to campaign for the defeat of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the March elections just days after the White House complained about the Israeli leader’s plan to address Congress over Iran’s nuclear program.

The five Democratic consultants are led by political strategist Jeremy Bird, who was the field director for Obama’s key 2008 South Carolina Democratic primary election when he beat Hillary Clinton, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported this week.

Bird and his team are working with a group called Victory 2015, which aims to promote opposition candidates in the March 17 parliamentary elections.

Just in case you’re not sure, Jeremy Bird is a TOP Obama campaign strategist who was sent by his master to help the devil win Israel for him.  And the financier behind Bird is a “very proud” Obama supporter and openly boasted – albeit in a pissy manner – about serving as “Obama’s money machine.”

So anybody who wants to claim that Obama wasn’t interfering in Israel’s elections by actively community organizing against Benjamin Netanyahu is just a flat-out demon-possessed LIAR just like the demon-possessed lying Obama they support and serve.

And just how was Obama trying to community-organize the election?  By busing in ARABS to throw out JEWS:

In a video message Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that left-wing NGOs and foreign governments are attempting to influence the election by busing Arabs to the polls. The Joint List of Arabs parties announced that so far Arab turnout is more than three times larger than in previous elections.

“The right-wing government is in danger,” said Netanyahu in a video message posted on Facebook Tuesday. “Arab voters are going en masse to the polls. Left-wing NGOs are bringing them on buses.”

Netanyahu later underscored that Arab citizens voting is not the problem, but the “massive funds from abroad from left-wing NGOs and foreign governments” being use to bring Arab voters “en masse to the polls in an organized way, thus twisting the true will of all Israeli citizens who are voting, for the good of the left.”

Likud sent a similar message to voters that the “concern is coming true: The call by Abbas and American money are bringing Arabs to the polls. Go vote!”  The message linked to a report that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas encouraged Arabs to form one party and push for members to vote for Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog.

Which is just how Obama won the elections in 2008 and 2012 – by busing in every single fool and every single tool he could find who would sell their vote for a cigarette butt.

And we can now safely claim that Obama’s message to Israel is pretty much, “Die, Jew!  My goal is to bury you in Arabs until they drive you into the Sea!”  Because that is EXACTLY what he sent his political operatives to accomplish.

Well, eat cat poop, Obama.  You lost.  I know, you’re too arrogant and way, WAY, WAAAAYYY too narcissistic to ever acknowledge – probably even to yourself with all the demons screaming lies in your head – to admit you lost.  But you lost and you lost big in your hope to undermine the hated Little Satan as much as you’ve dismantled your Great Satan machine for your Muslim masters.

You know that had Netanyahu lost this election, every mainstream leftist propagandist joke-for-a-journalist would have been crowing about the Republicans creating their own disaster by inviting Netanyahu to speak to Congress where he could tell the American people and the world the TRUTH about the disgraceful deal Obama is desperate to arrange with Iran to guarantee them nukes in ten years.  They would have gleefully written up the story as being the Republican Party’s fault Bibi lost.  So all we can do is gloat over the silence as a dishonest media machine refuses to report the truth over what a major disaster this was for an Obama who publicly demonized Netanyahu and tried to turn people against Netanyahu’s speech before he even gave it.

We just found out that Obama mysteriously removed Iran as a sponsor of terrorism just as the negotiations to grant Iran nukes if they just wait a few years was about to bubble over.  And we know he did so in a brazenly dishonest way:

Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah have been removed from this year’s terror list, despite being on it for the past several years.

Fox News Channel reported Tuesday that the office of National Intelligence Director James Clapper blamed the omission on a formatting change in the way the document is printed.

Fox’s Greta Van Susteren called it “a little bit insane that they changed the format and suddenly the two worst terrorists, Iran and Hezbollah, disappear.”

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said the omission may be tied to nuclear negotiations currently underway between the United States and Iran.

“The people who would say this is a format change are weasels,” Bolton said on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

“It’s a flat lie. The format of this year’s report is exactly the same as last year’s report. Don’t believe me? Go look on the web. Compare the two of them. It’s exactly the same.”

Bolton said he believes the Iranian negotiators told the American negotiators they have to ease up on labeling the country the largest state sponsor of terrorism.

Bolton said he doesn’t believe the details of the arrangement will show up in the final nuclear deal, which is troubling, he said, because it raises questions of what other concessions might have been made, but will never be made public.

That’s always how this pathologically dishonest administration that is trying to impose this deal on the American people works.  And the Constitution and the Congress that has a constitutional role in any such treaty be damned as Obama vows to literally veto BOTH the Congress AND Article 2, Section 2, clause 2 of the Constitution.

You tell ME when the last time a US President forced this kind of a nuclear treaty with an enemy down America’s throat without the consent of Congress, you treason-loving liberals.

John Kerry, Obama’s Stooge of State, argued it’s not a treaty “because it’s not legally binding.”  Well, that’s just great.  Because it means Iran is free to cheat all they damn well want to and it’s nothing but a bunch of meaningless words to make the world look the other way while Iran continues to build nuclear weapons along with the ballistic missiles to deliver them.

This is the same pathologically dishonest weasel who just got through blaming George W. Bush for the rise of the Islamic State that barely even existed as a fringe group when Bush was president and in fact was only a tiny fringe group in Syria (NOT Iraq) throughout Bush’s presidency.  It was not until AFTER Obama’s pathetic and despicable “red line” fiasco in Syria that Islamic State was allowed to metastasize into the full-fledged stage 4 cancer that it is now.  It was not until AFTER Obama withdrew ALL US forces out of Iraq despite EVERY GENERAL’S WARNING that Obama’s foolishness would end in disaster.  It was not until AFTER Obama ignored the rise of Islamic State and idiotically called them “JayVee” even AFTER they had seized major cities in Iraq that Islamic State rose.

But it’s Bush’s fault that Democrats are pathologically demon-possessed liars who will one day burn in hell for their cockroach wickedness as angels sing with joy that justice has finally prevailed over earth.

And now this same Obama is pleading with Iran that their terrorism means nothing to him because he hates America and freedom as much as they do, and that if they just work with him he will guarantee Iran a nuclear bomb in ten years (when he thinks it won’t be traced to him) to balance what he views as the threat of Israel.

Obama is playing so many underhanded games with America’s national security in so many places and in so many ways that it ought to terrify you.

He just got through demonizing the 47 Republicans – whom I call “the 47 Ronin” because they are heroically trying to overthrow a truly evil tyrant – for “sending a letter to the Ayatollah.”

I mean, literally, Obama had to JOIN FORCES WITH THE AYATOLLAH in order to slam that letter

Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama slammed Republican senators who penned a letter attempting to warn Iran that any pending nuclear agreement will face their scrutiny, claiming they were aligning themselves with Iranian “hard-liners.”

“I think it’s somewhat ironic to see some members for Congress wanting to make common cause with the hard-liners in Iran. It’s an unusual coalition,” Obama said Monday ahead of a meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk.

“I think what we’re going to focus on right now is actually seeing whether we’re going to get a deal or not. Once we do, if we do, we’ll be able to make the case to the American people, and I’m confident we’ll be able to implement it,” Obama said.

Nearly every Senate Republican has signed on to an open letter to Iran’s leaders warning that without their approval, any Iran nuclear deal signed by Obama will be null and void after he leaves office.

But a top Iranian negotiator and Democrats slammed the letter, calling it a purposeful attempt to undermine the delicate negotiations as they reach a pivotal deadline later this month.

“We believe this letter has no legal value and is indeed just a propaganda ploy,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, in a statement provided to and translated by CNN. “Whats more, while the negotiations have not yet borne fruit and there no agreement yet, pressure groups in the U.S. are so worried that they are using extraordinary measures to prove that they, just like Netanyahu oppose any kind of agreement.”

– so who is actually on whose side here????

And notice that the Ayatollah and Obama both share a common rabid hatred for Netanyahu.

The fact is clear: the hard liners who run Iran are very clearly on Obama’s side and Obama is very clearly on the side of the Iranian hard liners and both are teaming up to demonize the 47 Ronin who are heroically trying to fight the tyranny that would be advanced by this wicked deal.

When you look at the history of Iran THERE ARE NO MODERATES ruling Iran.  THERE IS NO MODERATE FACTION of Iranian government.  It is the Ayatollah who gets to pick who even gets to run for any government position.  Which means that the monster can decide to wear a nicer mask or an uglier mask, but he is the same monster either way.

Rich Lowry points this fact out in his statement:

It is Obama who has been wooing — cozying up to, in Kaplan’s phrase — the most powerful hard-liner in Iran, unless we are supposed to believe that Khamenei himself is now a moderate.

Iran has been since 1979 and remains to this very day a country that ends every official prayer with, “Death to America!”

I just laugh until I cry with the mainstream media’s constant inference that the Republicans wrote this letter, put it in an envelope, and mailed it “to whom it may concern” in Iran.  The letter was NEVER SENT ANYWHERE, you deluded fools; it appeared on Sen. Tom Cotton’s WEBSITE and was NEVER SENT ANYWHERE.

The above article documents at length the false narrative that Republicans sent the letter to Iran when that is a flat-out lie.

If you are a Democrat, you are a liar who lives in an ocean of lies.  And you would literally perish if you were exposed to truth.

Would you like to know which Senator actually DID send a letter to Iran???

Yeah, that’s right.  Then Senator and candidate for president Barack Hussein Obama.  And look at what Obama did:

 … in 2008, a Democratic senator sent a personal emissary to Tehran encouraging the mullahs not to sign an agreement with the outgoing Bush Administration as negotiations would take on a much friendlier tone following President Bush’s departure from office.

Don’t sign an agreement with Bush, Obama said.  I promise to give you a better one that will help you and harm the Great Satan America so that we can achieve our common goal of “Death to America.”

And for the record, that’s just ONE of the SEVERAL secret letters that Obama has sent to the Ayatollahs in Iran.  And unlike the Republicans yes Obama DID send those letters to Iran.  Obama ought to be embarrassed for HIMSELF.

Barack Obama is a traitor guilty of treason and collaborating with the enemy according to his own demonic rhetoric.

Obama has this in common with the Ayatollahs in Iran and with Hillary Clinton who wants to be the next American Ayatollah: they are all dishonest fascists who view themselves as ABOVE the laws that they want to impose on everybody else.

 

 

 

Charlie Rangel’s Bogus Attack On Mitt Romney As Some Kind Of Tax Cheat Qualifies Him As A Poster Boy For Abject Democrat Hypocrisy

September 21, 2012

The Democrat Party is THE party of dishonesty, hypocrisy and moral idiocy.  From Hot Air:

Congressionally censured tax cheat tells Romney ‘Americans pay their taxes, unlike you.’
posted at 12:01 pm on September 20, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

Chutzpah, thy name is Charlie Rangel:

“Nothing can be further from the truth than Gov. Romney’s ridiculous remarks that nearly half of American people do not pay federal income taxes, they pay other federal and state taxes. The 47 percent figure cited by the Republican presidential candidate covers only the federal income tax and ignores the fact that people may pay a higher percentage of their income on a wide variety of taxes.

Everyone pays taxes. Lower income persons pay state and local, property, excise and sales taxes. In fact, when all federal, state, and local taxes are taken into account, the bottom fifth of households pays about 16 percent of their incomes in taxes, on average. The second-poorest fifth pays about 21 percent. This is higher than what the Governor has paid in income taxes. He has absolutely no moral authority to accuse nearly half of the American people of being irresponsible and freeloaders.”

Speaking of “absolutely no moral authority,” let’s go over Rangel’s record, who was censured by the House of Representatives for a multitude of tax and ethics violations made while he was in charge of writing the nation’s tax policy as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Rep. Charlie Rangel amended his financial disclosure forms under pressure in 2009 to show “that he had omitted an array of assets, business transactions and sources of income. They include a Merrill Lynch Global account valued between $250,000 and $500,000; tens of thousands of dollars in municipal bonds; and $30,000 to $100,000 in rent from a multifamily brownstone building he owned on West 132nd Street.” That wasn’t all. “The latest filings come on top of an amendment to Mr. Rangel’s 2007 disclosure form reported this week showing that he had failed to list at least $500,000 in assets.” The new disclosures doubled Rangel’s net worth.

Rep. Charlie Rangel rented several apartments in Harlem at suspiciously below-market rates from a big campaign donor, combining several to create his home while using one of them as a campaign office. That was a violation of rent-control laws, which require rent-controlled apartments to be used as residences.

Rep. Charlie Rangel parked his Mercedes for free in a Congressional parking space for about five years, never declaring the approximate $300 monthly fee on his taxes, as IRS rules require. Luckily, the House Ethics committee determined that he didn’t violate any rules because they only apply rules about parking to staff, not members.

Rep. Charlie Rangel used Congressional letterhead to solicit donations for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at the City College of New York from companies that might have significant interests in the policy making of his committee, a move ethicists said “crossed the line.” He’d already funneled federal earmarks for the center.

Later, one of the big donors to the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service benefitted richly when Rangel changed his position on closing a tax loophole.

Rep. Charlie Rangel failed to report $75,000 in rental income or pay taxes on a Dominican villa he owned, causing the New York Times to call for him to step down from his Ways and Means Chairmanship.

In 2008, Rep. Charlie Rangel was forced to pay back taxes on rental income on his villa in the Dominican Republic— a property he was advised to buy by one of his donors and for which he later received preferential treatment when the interest rate on his mortgage was waived.

Rep. Charlie Rangel took the “Property Homestead Deduction Act” tax break on his Washington, D.C. residence for five years, despite the fact that he maintained his primary residence in New York for electoral reasons. Lawmakers who maintain a residence in D.C. but must also maintain a primary residence in their districts are not eligible for the homestead break, tax lawyers told the NY Post.

Rangel is one of the most demonstrably corrupt manipulators of the tax code in Washington, and his longtime position as the guy who wrote tax code for the rest of us makes the corruption all the more despicable.

The headline on his press release should have been, “Americans pay their fair share in taxes, unlike me.”

H/t Village Voice.

Well, little people and Republicans.

If you take away Mitt Romney’s considerable charitable giving, he’s actually paying a tax rate of 42%.  But it doesn’t matter to Democrats that Mitt Romney has given 15% of his income to charity versus Obama who is the most caring man who ever lived but gave less than one measly percent of his wealth to charity.

There is ZERO evidence that Mitt Romney has failed to pay so much as a DIME of taxes that he has owed.  Versus dishonest cockroach liars like Charlie Rangel.

But being the party of rabid dishonesty and hypocrisy, it is no wonder that the Democrat Party would allow Rangel to make such a complete hypocrite ass out of himself.
