A Nobel For Wikileaks? Nobel Prize Worth About A Cup Of Horse Crap These Days

March 4, 2011

Jimmy Carter got one (maybe it was for abandoning a key US ally in the Shah and inviting in the Ayatolloahs?).  Al Gore got one for being a global warming propagandist.  Barack Obama got one for being nothing but a slick-talking socialist.

Ronald Reagan, who won the Cold War that had plagued the world for nearly fifty years, and who turned around an economy that was on its way down the toilet, didn’t get one.

So clearly being an ideological partisan liberal is a prerequisite for “winning” a Nobel Prize.

Murderer Yassar Arafat got one.  So maybe being a terrorist or at least being someone who is good at destabilizing world peace is a prerequisite, too.

And, of course, one of the few people who actually deserve the award was languishing in a Chinese prison while the Chinese who were crushing the human spirit were sipping champagne with Barry Hussein in the Obama White House.  So I guess hypocrisy and moral cowardice are probably criterions, also.

The background for giving that dissident – Liu Xiaobo – the Nobel Prize, is itself rather revealing.  Basically, in giving it to Obama for doing nothing beyond being a leftist, the Nobel committee felt pressured to give the 2010 award to somebody who actually deserved it.  If this was a Pee Wee Baseball umpiring deal, the dirty umpire would make sure his kid’s team won every single game but the one where league officials came to monitor his calls.

All that said, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange would seem to be a perfect choice for the award.

A cup full of horse crap stuffed in his face would be a pretty good choice, too.

As Hot Air points out:

There’s also the complicity of Wikileaks in possible torture and death, but who cares about that? Wikileaks callously released the names and whereabouts of Afghan informants helping US troops drive out the Taliban — a truly corrupt, murderous, terrorist regime — putting not only the lives of the informants in danger, but also the lives of their families. (Even Amnesty International was disgusted by this.) Julian Assange doctored a video of an Apache shooting insurgents in Baghdad, calling it collateral murder, but his little act of exposure in Afghanistan could lead to real collateral murder. The “courage” of the Wikileaks document drop also put the lives of US citizens and troops in danger, but hey, maybe that’s why they’re being nominated.

Julian Assange also admitted that Wikileaks was responsible for a Kenyan massacre that followed one of their document drops, but who cares? The Kenyans were informed before they were slaughtered. I’m sure that, were they alive, they would totally say it was worth it.

Even the flagship of liberalism The New York Times acknowledged that Assange and Wikileaks altered video to falsely demonize the US military:

By the time of the meetings in London, WikiLeaks had already acquired a measure of international fame or, depending on your point of view, notoriety. Shortly before I got the call from The Guardian, The New Yorker published a rich and colorful profile of Assange, by Raffi Khatchadourian, who had embedded with the group. WikiLeaks’s biggest coup to that point was the release, last April, of video footage taken from one of two U.S. helicopters involved in firing down on a crowd and a building in Baghdad in 2007, killing at least 18 people. While some of the people in the video were armed, others gave no indication of menace; two were in fact journalists for the news agency Reuters. The video, with its soundtrack of callous banter, was horrifying to watch and was an embarrassment to the U.S. military. But in its zeal to make the video a work of antiwar propaganda, WikiLeaks also released a version that didn’t call attention to an Iraqi who was toting a rocket-propelled grenade and packaged the manipulated version under the tendentious rubric “Collateral Murder.” (See the edited and non-edited videos here.)

Too bad those Reuters journalists decided to pal around with armed terrorists.  And too bad that Wikileaks released what was clearly propaganda that edited that little detail out of their Nobel-Prize-winning effort.

But propaganda is FINE with the political left, as long as it’s propaganda that demonizes conservatives, Republicans, America or the US military.  And just as is the case of Al Gore, the fact that Julian Assange is a documented propagandist who falsifies stories really doesn’t much matter in whether or not he should get a big fat award.

The New York Times, which of course helped Assange get his America-undermining pile of secrets to the world, was rather petty in its treatment of Assange.  After all, they were the arrogant elitists, and Assange wasn’t even a “real journalist.”  So after benefitting from his story, they turned on him like cockroaches eating their own:

On the fourth day of the London meeting, Assange slouched into The Guardian office, a day late. Schmitt took his first measure of the man who would be a large presence in our lives. “He’s tall — probably 6-foot-2 or 6-3 — and lanky, with pale skin, gray eyes and a shock of white hair that seizes your attention,” Schmitt wrote to me later. “He was alert but disheveled, like a bag lady walking in off the street, wearing a dingy, light-colored sport coat and cargo pants, dirty white shirt, beat-up sneakers and filthy white socks that collapsed around his ankles. He smelled as if he hadn’t bathed in days.”

So maybe really lousy personal hygiene habits are desirable for winning a Nobel Prize, too.

John Stossel pointed something out in an interview with Bill O’Reilly.  O’Reilly mentioned all the awards Stossel had won as a journalist, including 19 Emmys and 5 awards for excellence by the National Press Club.  But John Stossel noted that he wouldn’t be winning any more such awards.  Because he went to Fox News.  And the field of journalism is largely comprised of radical leftwing ideologues who are simply far too biased to recognize that the same great journalist who won all those awards is still the same great journalist doing the same great work.  But the field of American journalism doesn’t care about that; as far as these ideologue propagandists are concerned, John Stossel is persona non grata.  It’s just the way the roll.

And frankly, John Stossel is a better journalist than he’s ever been, because he cares more about the truth than he cares about playing these sick people’s game to win their stupid awards for leftwing bias.

The only reason the Nobel Prize award gets any coverage at all any more is because it is clearly lagely a far leftist award, and the media that gives us “the news” are a bunch of far leftists who think their fellow leftists (and only fellow leftists, mind you) deserve accolades.

Ready To Go To Jail For Not Buying ‘Free’ Government Health Care?

September 27, 2009

Liberals have oft exalted communist Cuba’s “free” health care system.  Isn’t it wonderful?  Why can’t we do that?

Of course, for one thing, the “free” system in Cuba isn’t nearly so wonderful as “Sicko” Michael Moore made it in his propaganda film.  Frankly, I wouldn’t take my dog to a Cuban hospital.

It isn’t just Michael Moore; CNN depicted the Cuban system as a model for America, too.

Most Americans would only go to Cuba at the point of a gun.  But Obama is trying to bring Cuba to us.

The sad reality – as the “public option” makes its way back into the Democrats’ plans – is that the system that they are so determined to impose is neither “free” nor anything other than a giant step down from the system we have.

When you factor out deaths by accidents and homicide – which say nothing about the quality of a health care system – the U.S. system is the best in the world measured by life expectancy.  One teenage gang-banger blown away in a drive-by shooting does serious damage to mortality-rate tables.  It would be nice if the mainstream media actually quit serving as Michael Moore-like propagandists and started telling their viewers and readers that fact.

You’ll be getting a whole lot less.  But don’t think you won’t be paying a whole lot more for the privilege of getting a whole lot less.

And you may even be going to jail for the “privilege” of ObamaCare.

The Provocateur explains how the mushrooming lies surrounding the Democrats’ health care plans will actually end up in jail time for many Americans:

Anyone that’s still not convinced that the Baucus bill is rotten should be convinced after they read this latest discovery.

Under the health care bill being considered in the Senate Finance Committee, Americans who fail to pay a penalty for not buying insurance could be charged up to $25,000 by the Internal Revenue Service or face up to a year in jail, according to congressional analysts.

To understand how this can happen you need to follow the wonky nature of the bill and our tax code. It’s important because the so called logic reveals just how perverted not only the Baucus bill is but the Democrats’ philosophy on health care.

Under the Baucus bill, health insurance is no longer optional. It’s not even a right but rather a mandate. In other words, if you’re living, you have to heave health insurance. If you don’t have health insurance, the government penalizes you. The penalty has been changed once and currently that’s as much as $1900. This penalty will be assessed by the IRS.

This is no small point because the president argued that this penalty is NOT a tax. That’s important because the President ad nauseum promised not to raise taxes on anyone that earns less than $200,000 yearly. Of course, if this penalty were considered a tax, then this would break his promise. Of course, if the IRS is the one imposing the fee/penalty, it’s hard to see this penalty as anything but a tax.

Now, let’s follow the logic. Health insurance is now a mandate. If you don’t pay it, you pay a penalty. If you don’t pay the penalty, you are now evading your taxes. Tax evasion is a crime, just ask Al Capone. So, all those that refuse or can’t pay for their health insurance and refuse or can’t pay the fine for refusing are now considered the same kind of criminal as Al Capone once was. Such is the logic of President Obama and the Democrats.

Let me return to Cuba–and all the other communist totalitarian dictatorships along with it.  Do you seriously believe that the millions of human beings who have been oppressed and dehumanized under these systems knew what they were going to receive?  Do you believe that the supporters of Marxism told the truth, and explained to the people what the system was going to yield?

They were fed lies, and when they believed those lies, they fell prey to an oppressive yoke that they could not throw off.

And lies abound about this takeover of 1/6th of the American economy:

Last Sunday, Barack Obama proved that he is a liar by refusing to call what is clearly a tax a tax.  And Obama’s own hometown newspaper proves the obvious.

Last Tuesday, the Democrat-approved Congressional Budget Office laid out Obama’s lie that Medicare would not be cut:

Congress’ chief budget officer on Tuesday contradicted President Barack Obama’s oft-stated claim that seniors wouldn’t see their Medicare benefits cut under a health care overhaul.

Last Thursday, Republicans exposed the Democrats in their lie that Americans could keep their health care if they were satisfied with it.

And the real catastrophic fruits of those lies – such as actual jail time under IRS tax evasion statutes unless you pay something that we’re assured all the while isn’t a tax at all.

Obama’s Democrats: The Party Of Van Jones

September 5, 2009

Van Jones is an acknowledged radical black nationalist.  He is an admitted communist.  He is on the record as an anti-white racist.  He is an ANTI-bipartisan radical figure.  And so is Barack Obama and the Democrat Party as long as he is allowed by them to remain in his position as “green jobs czar”

He was arrested for rioting following the Rodney King verdict.

He is a communist:

[Van] Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’” Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. “I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.”

He tried to purge the evidence as his radicalism and communism began to become public knowledge, but the record survives.

Van Jones wrote in his manifesto:

We agreed with Lenin’s analysis of the state and the party,” reads the manifesto. “And we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-tung and Amilcar Cabral.” […]

“We also saw our brand of Marxism as, in some ways, a reclamation.”

The night after the horrible 9/11 attack against the United States – during which time the United States suffered more casualties from a foreign enemy than at any time since the War of 1812 – Van Jones took the side of the terrorists against America.  Are we the good guy?  Not according to Van Jones and those who share his ideology:

Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones’ Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM’s official manifesto, titled, “Reclaiming Revolution,” surfaced on the Internet.

A WND review of the 97-page treatise found a description of a vigil that Jones’ group held Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif. The event drew hundreds and articulated an “anti-imperialist” line, according to STORM’s own description.

The radical group’s manual boasted the 9/11 vigil was held to express solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans
and to mourn the civilians killed in the terrorist attacks “as well as the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world.”

Van Jones took part in the convicted cop murderer Mumia Abu Jamal.  Go here for more on that vile relationship and it’s vile fruit.

Van Jones signed the 9/11 “Truther” document that demanded the Bush Administration prove it did not engage in a high-level conspiracy to attack the World Trade Center on 9/11 and blame Muslims for it. In the petition that Van Jones signed, he demanded an “immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur.”  Now he doesn’t deny signing the statement; he just says he doesn’t agree with it.  As Hot Air puts it:

That’s the second apology he’s made in two days; at this rate, it’d be faster and easier to issue a statement retracting everything he ever said in his life prior to being hired by Obama.

The other apology refers to publication of statements denoting his militant brand of political partisanship that guarantees that Republicans and Democrats will continue to be at the most bitter warfare until the Obama Administration is an unpleasant memory.  In a question regarding Republicans, Van Jones offered this:

Berkely, Calif., Feb. 26, 2009: Jones took audience questions in Berkeley, Calif., during a lecture on energy issues.

Van Jones: “Well, the answer to that is: they’re assholes.”

Female questioner: I was afraid that that was the answer.

Van Jones: That’s a technical, political science term. And — Barack O — Barack Obama’s not an asshole. So — now, I will say this: I can be an asshole. And some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity [to get things done]. How’s that capitalism working for ya?

In addition to calling Republicans to be “a@@holes,” he essentially called for Democrats to be even more militant and radical than they already are.

That in addition to his Marxist hatred for the capitalism that made this country great.

If all that isn’t bad enough, Van Jones is a also a radical racist who will use his position to punish whites for deliberately poisoning people of color.

January 2008

Van Jones: “The environmental justice community that said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, you know, you’re regulating, but you’re not regulating equally.’ And the white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people-of-color communities, because they don’t have a racial justice frame.”

See the video here.

How does he plan to do that?  By fundamentally transforming the system.

Uprising Radio, April 2008

Van Jones; “Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said, ‘OK now we want reparations for slavery, we want redistribution of all the wealth, and we want to legalize mixed marriages.’ If we’d come out with a maximum program the very next day, they’d been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum. ‘We just want to integrate these buses.’

But, inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1964 to 1968 complete revolution was on the table for this country. And, I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages. Right now we say we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to something eco-capitalism where at least we’re not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it won’t be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression altogether. But, that’s a process and I think that’s what’s great about the movement that is beginning to emerge is that the crisis is so severe in terms of joblessness, violence and now ecological threats that people are willing to be both pragmatic and visionary. So the green economy will start off as a small subset and we are going to push it and push it and push it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.”

See the video here.

We are talking about a radical communist who has been empowered for the purpose of “transforming the whole society” by Barack Obama.

Van Jones said at the Powershift Conference in MARCH 2009:

“This movement is deeper than a solar panel! Deeper than a solar panel! Don’t stop there! Don’t stop there! We’re gonna change the whole system! We’re gonna change the whole thing! […] And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn’t want, where it was all hot and windy. Well, guess what? Renewable energy? Guess what, solar industry? Guess what wind industry? They now own and control 80 percent of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth! Give them the wealth! Give them the dignity. Give them the respect that they deserve. No justice on stolen land. We owe them a debt.

See the video here.

If you are white, you are blight.

Let me tell you something; if you are a white Democrat, I hope you lose your job.  I hope it is “redistributed” to a person of color, and your children (who, being part of the oppressive white race deserve to starve) go hungry.

Obama talked about “hope” and “change.”  You want to know what I hope?  I hope that white Democrats finally get to bear the brunt of the policies that their party has been pushing.  I hope the change is that they will get to experience what “redistribution” is really all about.

That’s what they call “poetic justice.”  It’s time to eat the crap you shoveled for everyone else, white Democrats.  And you’d better smile while you swallow it, or you’ll be labeled a “racist” along with everyone else who has opposed the radical and racist Marxist liberal agenda.

Is all that behind Van Jones like he said in his “apology” that amounts to one of those “If anything I said offended anybody, I’m sorry that you are an oppressive white devil”?  I mean, some of the things he said occurred all the way back to March of 2009.

As you listen to Van Jones’ denials and the White House’s whitewashing, consider Van Jones said this:

“I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”

He said that statement in the same breath in which he claimed that we have “eco-apartheid.” His intent being to use his position to redistribute wealth and punish white people and help people of color.

But his main point is this: I’ll tone down my radical rhetoric so I can better attain my radical objectives.  So whatever he says to distance himself from his previous history is just a ruse to masquerade his past so he can continue pursuing his radical, anti-white, anti-capitalist, pro-Marxist, pro-Islamicist ends.

Just like one Barack Hussein Obama, who spent 23 years in a Marxist “black liberation” church that preached anti-white racist hatred and anti-Americanism.  As I pointed out back in March of last year:

Liberation theology was developed in the early 1970s to pave the way for the communist Sandinistas to infiltrate – and subsequently dominate – Nicaraguan society. The Sandinistas understood full well that they had no hope of installing a Marxist regime in a country that was well over 90% Roman Catholic unless they could successfully subsume Catholicism into their cause of Marxism. And the wedding of Marxism with Christianity was brought about in a clear effort of the former to crush the latter.

And all “black liberation theology” does is repackage that same brand of Marxism for blacks.

Barack Obama’s preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, screamed:

“No, no, no! Not God bless America!  God damn America!”

while Obama’s fellow congregants leaped to their feat and cheered.

Obama was forced to leave the church after it became politically untenable for him to remain.  But the history of Obama’s long membership and association with Trinity Church and with Jeremiah Wright cannot just be swept under the rug with a politically motivated speech.  He left that racist anti-American cesspool 23 years too late to matter.

Barack Obama pirated a speech from his friend Deval Patrick titled, “Just Words.”  I had a few things to say about a few other things that were “just words”:

When Barack Obama’s pastor for some 23 years said:

“It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere … That’s the world! On which hope sits.”

Just words.

When Jeremiah Wright said:

“The government gives them [African Americans] the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

Just words.

When Wright said of the United States:

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”

Just words.

“We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college,” he said. “Racism is alive and well. Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run. No black man will ever be considered for president, no matter how hard you run Jesse [Jackson] and no black woman can ever be considered for anything outside what she can give with her body.”

Just words.

When the Rev. Wright said:

“America is still the No. 1 killer in the world. … We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns, and the training of professional killers. … We bombed Cambodia, Iraq and Nicaragua, killing women and children while trying to get public opinion turned against Castro and Ghadhafi. … We put (Nelson) Mandela in prison and supported apartheid the whole 27 years he was there. We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.”

Yep. Just words.

When Wright shouted out to his cheering congregation:

“We started the AIDS virus. … We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty.”

“The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”

Just words.

And, of course, when Wright said:

“We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic. … We care nothing about human life if the end justifies the means. …”

Those were just words.

This past weekend, when Father Michael Pfleger – a longtime friend and spiritual mentor of Barack Obama, said from the pulpit of Obama’s church:

When Hillary was crying, and people said that was put on, I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought, ‘this is mine. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white, and this is mine. I just gotta get up and step into the plate.’

Then out of nowhere, ‘I’m Barack Obama!’

Imitating Hillary’s response, screaming at the top of his lungs again, he continues, ‘Ah, damn! Where did you come from? I’m white! I’m entitled! There’s a black man stealing my show!’

(mocks crying)

She wasn’t the only one crying, there was a whole lot of white people crying!

Just words.

When Father Pfleger said in the pulpit of Obama’s church:

“Honestly now, to address the one who says, ‘Don’t hold me responsible for what my ancestors did.’ But you have enjoyed the benefits of what your ancestors did … and unless you are ready to give up the benefits, throw away your 401 fund, throw away your trust fund, throw away all the monies you put away into the company you walked into because your daddy and grand daddy. …”

Shouting, Pfleger continued, “Unless you are willing to give up the benefits then you must be responsible for what was done in your generation, because you are the beneficiaries of this insurance policy.”

Just words (well, unless you mind having everything you own taken away from you and given to someone else to make up for “historic injustices”).

And when Obama’s good friend Father Pfleger said:

“Racism is still America’s greatest addiction. I also believe that America is also the greatest sin against God.”

Just words.

Now, when Barack Obama opined to a wine-sipping, cheese nibbling crowd in San Franscisco:

You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Just words.

Van Jones’ views aren’t an anomaly.  They accurately reflect Barack Obama’s own views, and what Van Jones intends to do is what Barack Obama intends to do.

Van Jones is the face of the Democratic Party.  Pure and simple.  Otherwise, you explain to me why Barack Obama picked him.  You explain to me why Barack Obama has kept him at his side as all of these facts about him came out.

John F. Kennedy is dead, and has been for more than 45 years.  The Democrat Party of John F. Kennedy used to be a party that believed in a powerful military that Democrats today mock and attack; it used to be a party that staunchly and steadfastly opposed the very Marxist/communist agenda that Democrats today are now openly embracing; it used to be a party that believed in low taxes as the foundation for economic growth (and see him on video).

John F. Kennedy is rolling in his grave as his former party becomes the very sort of abomination that he fought to oppose under the leadership of Barack Hussein Obama and the vile characters that he has chosen to surround himself with to implement his incredibly radical agenda.  John F. Kennedy and Barack H. Obama are anathema to one another.

Please read Thomas Sowell’s article, “Stop and Think.”

It is long past time that “Kennedy Democrats” (and I mean JOHN, NOT TED) to wake up and turn on the Obama administration before it is too late.
