Liberal Rep. Weiner Shows Proves What A Weiner He Truly Is – LITERALLY!

June 1, 2011

It has to be ironic that the two Democrats whose names are euphemisms for the male reproductive organ are now BOTH demonstrated perverts (and of course Barney Frank, the homosexual who just got caught advancing one of his gay lovers for a position at the bankrupt Fannie Mae that caused our economy to implode in 2008, is the other).

Republican Rep. Chris Lee was caught sending a picture of himself shirtless to a woman.  That was so bad that he resigned.  A Democrat won his seat because people were disgusted by the behavior.  But that was a “G” rated picture compared to Weiner’s weiner.

It’s Weiner’s turn to say bye bye because of “Weinergate.”

Here’s the story:

Too many coincidences in Weiner’s tale

In the New York of the late 1800s, Boss Tweed famously complained about Thomas Nast cartoons: Though many immigrants in the city couldn’t read, even the illiterate could understand “those damn pictures.” Rep. Anthony Weiner and his staff now face a similar problem.

By now, you’ve heard about the Tweet picture sent from Weiner’s account to a young lady named Gennette Nicole Cordova. The congressman has insisted his accounts were “hacked.” Cordova, in a statement released late Sunday night (36 hours after the tweet in question), says, “The account that these tweets were sent from was familiar to me. This person had harassed me many times after the congressman followed me on Twitter.” She also said that her previous tweet, “I wonder what my boyfriend @repweiner is up to,” was a joke.

Such statements notwithstanding, those on the left trying to paint this as a conspiracy must deal with an array of odd elements that an increasingly tech-savvy public may find suspicious:

* Not just the offending picture but most of the congressman’s pictures were removed from the site.

* Not only did the young lady’s Facebook and Twitter accounts disappear from the ’Net (she’s apparently since started a new Twitter account, and may go back on Facebook), but also her bylines on articles in her college paper.

* The congressman made it a point to tweet what time an East Coast interview would be shown in Seattle, where the young lady’s from.

* Cordova reportedly wrote in the college paper in March about Twitter’s verifiable accounts giving access to celebrities.

Coincidences all, but there’s one more that millions of Twitter users will understand best:

On Twitter, famous people tend to have tens of thousands to millions of followers — but they themselves follow only a fraction of that amount.

Rep. Weiner is a man of national prominence, a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently on TV, a past and likely future candidate for mayor. He knows and is known by thousands of movers, shakers, members of the press and politicians on the city, state and national levels.

Yet, as of yesterday, he was following fewer than 200 others — and, with all those famous folks to choose from, one of the few he followed was Cordova, a 21-year-old college student who lives nearly 3,000 miles away in Bellingham,Wash.

Run that though your head for a second and at the same time remember two important facts about Twitter:

1. If two people follow each other on Twitter, they can send private messages unseen by others.

2. The difference between a direct message, seen by only the recipient, and a public tweet, seen by the world, is a single character.

The biggest problem for Weiner and his defenders on the left is not bloggers from the right. It’s the details of “#weinergate” can be understood by millions of ordinary people in 140 characters or less.

Peter Ingemi blogs at datechguyblog.com. He is the host of Da- TechGuy on DaRadio Saturdays 10 a.m. on WCRN-AM 830 in Worcester, Mass.

Here’s Weiner’s utterly bizarre press conference (it’s 7:30 long, but if you think this guy is actually innocent, maybe you could explain how in a way he refuses to do):

He stuck rigidly to his “If I were giving a speech to 45,000 people” non-analogous “analogy” with CNN. But apparently felt the need to add that a Clinton News Network producer is a “jackass” for actually expecting Weiner to answer an actual question about what he has claimed and what he has tacitly admitted.

Weiner – who refused to state that the picture in question was not actually of him – is calling it a “prank,” which is very different from calling it a “crime” as he immediately did when the story first came out on Big Journalism. And he is now refusing to talk about it any more than his answers to questions he’s done nothing but dodge.

Weiner claimed at first his account had been hacked – which is a federal crime (particularly given the fact that he is a congressman) involving real jail time which would obviously need to be handled by the Capitol Police and/or the FBI. But in spite of the fact that he said afederal crime had been committed against him, he refused to file a criminal report. Instead he called his lawyer – who of course essentially said “Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!  We’ll investigate this ourselves and tell you exactly what happened.”  And now Weiner – who wanted a federal investigation of Glenn Beck for pitching gold (which has massively increased in value since Beck pitched it, for the record) – suddenly doesn’t want an investigation of what he initially represented as a crime.  He doesn’t think it rises – pun apparently not intended – to the level of national federal resources.

The theory that best fits the facts is that Weiner most certainly DID intend to send this picture, but did not intend to send it to all 45,000 of his fool followers.  We’re finding out that Weiner had a penchant for tweeting young women – such as porn actress Ginger Lee, with whom Weiner exchanged private tweets.  What do you think are the odds that Weiner forgot to change a setting and sent something public what he wanted to send private?

I’ll have to say this: there’s a major difference between liberal women and conservative women.  Liberal women have a depraved tendency (which is probably simply part of the fact that liberals are depraved in general) of being willing to sexually service their idols.  I think of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.  Even the New York Times acknowledged that the guy “smelled as if he hadn’t bathed in days.”  But that didn’t stop liberal women from servicing their socialist star.  I think of “journalist” Nina Burleigh who famously said she would gladly give Bill Clinton oral sex to thank him for keeping abortion legal.  [That’s just one of the reasons that fascists are leftists; liberals are only too willing to go to depraved lengths for their messiahs].  And so we shouldn’t be one bit surprised that Weiner is out advertising his weiner to his fans.

It’s time to retire so you can spend more time with your Tweets, Weiner.

Democrat Tucson Shooting Victim Arrested For Death Threat Against Tea Party Spokesman

January 15, 2011

This is hopefully turning into a nightmare for the unhinged left (or should I just dispense with the need for redundant adjectives and simply say ‘the left’?) following their despicable demonization of conservatives as they sought to exploit the tragedy in Tucson, Arizona.

First we learned enough details in the hours following the massacre to realize that, if anything, shooter Jared Loughner was leftwing rather than being any kind of conservative.

Second, there is the fact that when we look at Jared Loughner, what we find is that he had a grudge against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords dating back to 2007.  That grudge predates Sarah Palin; it predates the Tea Party movement; it predates the so-called “rightwing rhetoric” against Barack Obama.  And to go further, we find that, in fact, Loughner’s hatred of Rep. Giffords actually occurred during the LEFTWING hatred targeting George W. Bush and Republicans.  And we find that while Loughner nowhere in any of his writings or videos mentioned Sarah Palin, the tea party movement, ObamaCare, conservatives, or anything “right wing,” he DID repeatedly mention his über-leftwing belief that George Bush was responsible for engineering the 9/11 attacks.

And yet it took Paul Krugman and The New York Slimes 2 hours after the terrible tragedy in Tucson to publish a vile and frankly immoral piece of propaganda demonizing conservatives.  Which is to say that this Nobel Prize-winning propagandist of the left started manufacturing facts before the echoes of the gunfire had died down.  And this from a man who had himself burned effigies of Republicans at his party celebrating the Democrat victories in 2008; and who had called for Joe Lieberman to be hung by the neck in effigy.

None of that stopped the immoral and hypocrite left from loudly denouncing conservatives for somehow being responsible for the shooting.  Because facts are irrelevant to these people, and all that matters is their exploitation of even the worst tragedies for their political ends.

If there wasn’t already a “strike three,” this latest surely qualifies:

(KGUN) –The meeting room at St. Odilia’s Catholic Church on the city’s northwest side was packed with local dignitaries, witnesses to the mass shooting Jan. 8, some of the witnesses to the shootings and the first responders to the scene for a taping of an ABC-TV special, a town hall event, at 11 a.m. Saturday. Host of the program, This Week, is Christianne Amanpour. The show will air at 7 a.m. Sunday on KGUN9-TV.

Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Among the dignitaries at the town hall taping were Mayor Bob Walkup, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and former Congressman Jim Kolbe.

ABC News dubbed the town hall, “After the Tragedy: An American Conversation Continued.”

A press released stated that the event will restart the conversation that Giffords began.  “Among those who will join the Town Hall: family members of victims, citizens who took heroic action and community leaders,” the press release stated.

That’s right: after all the denunciation of “rightwing hate,” it turns out that the ONLY actual political hate and death threats associated in any way with the Tucson shooting came out of the mouth of A DEMOCRAT and was aimed at a Republican Representative and at a Tea Party spokesman.

But don’t worry; I’m sure it didn’t affect Christianne Amanpour’s biased leftwing propaganda that it’s only the rightwing that practices hate in any way.  She’s long-since immunized herself against actual reality.

It literally happened on camera, so poor leftwing loon Sheriff Clarence Dupnik had absolutely no choice but to arrest fellow leftwing loon James Eric Fuller and prove how full of crap his “anti-conservative rhetoric” rhetoric was.

Remember, dozens of elected Democrat officials and HUNDREDS of mainstream media “journalists” repeatedly denounced the “climate of hate” created by the political right.  It doesn’t matter which network you want to point at: ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, you name it; they ALL despicably targeted conservatives in general and conservatives in particular (e.g., Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh). And what we now know is that the whole rotten bunch of them are the worst kind of hypocrites and liars.

There’s more here that came out from the Associated Press:

The self-described liberal and military veteran became distraught Saturday, authorities said, when he began ranting at the end of a televised town hall meeting about the tragedy. He took a picture of a local tea party leader and yelled “you’re dead” before calling others in the church a bunch of “whores,” authorities said.

Deputies arrested him and called a doctor. They decided he should be taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation, said Pima County sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said. […]

He also lashed out at conservative Republicans for “Second Amendment activism,” arguing it set the stage for the shooting. […]

Later, he showed up at the home of accused gunman Jared Loughner, who lived within a half-mile of Fuller.

“He said he was going to forgive him for shooting him,” Richard Elder, 86, a retired medical mechanic who lives next door to Fuller, told The Associated Press Sunday. “If anyone shot me, I don’t think I’d say, ‘Hey feller, that’s alright.'”

Okay, so this liberal flew who flew into a rage and literally threatened the life of a conservative for the simple reason that he (along with another elected representative who could be next to be murdered) believed in the 2nd Amendment.  And they deserve to die for that.  But this “self-described liberal” who is so intolerant of conservatives that he’s screaming “You’re dead!” and calling them “whores” decides to forgive who? Just the murderous psychopathic vermin who went on a shooting rampage.

And there is your quintessential liberal moral insanity: forgive the sociopathic drug-addict murderer, forgive the terrorists; when it comes to “punishing your enemies” – as Obama described – it refers to American conservatives.

So when it comes to the last mass-murdering psychopathic psychiatrist named Nidal Malik Hasan – who shouted “Allahu Akbar!” and who had business cards bearing the message “Soldier of Allah” while murdering 13 American soldiers and wounding 28 – Democrats told us not to jump to any conclusions, etc. etc.  But the moment they had an opportunity to “punish their enemies” (i.e. conservatives), well boy oh boy the fangs and the hell in their souls came out.

That’s who “the enemy” is.  Not America’s enemies; the Democrat Party’s enemies.

If you bother to stop watching the Joseph Goebbels media-machine and learn the truth, what you find is that there is a long and profound history of violence and threats of violence coming from the left, not the right.

Barack Obama gave a speech for which he was widely praised even by conservatives Wednesday night in a memorial for the Tucson shooting victims at the University of Arizona.  Do you know why he was so praised by conservatives?  Because, unlike EVERY SINGLE OTHER TIME, a Democrat passed up the opportunity to demonize Republicans for an act of random violence.  And should you really get praised for not doing something that is immoral and despicable in the first place???

But then we find that even here, Barack Obama could not rise even inches above all the political garbage that his party had just launched all around him: we find that the slogan used at the memorial event – and since when did memorial services get slogans, anyway? – was nothing more than a campaign slogan used by Obama’s Organizing for America in 2008.

I can’t wait for the day when Democrats develop the capacity for self-reflection and personal shame.  Because you people ought to be absolutely ashamed at yourselves for what you’ve done this past week.

Did Reuters Ever Capture John McCain With A Golden Halo?

February 17, 2010

World War II apparently wasn’t a complete waste.  It allowed American media liberals to learn how to do propaganda right from Joseph Goebbels’ example.

Another Subtle Obama Photo From Reuters That’s Not An Accident

Reuters has a habit of doing this..This photo was taken today at the IBEW in Maryland

This is the IBEW seal that Obama was photographed in…

2 weeks ago, it was Reuters capturing Obama with a halo

I don’t begrudge political campaigns from photographing their candidates in a favorable light (although the halo thing is kind of spooky – and, yes, Bush’s handlers gave him a halo on at least one occasion).  But when journalists who are supposed to be objective do it – and do it repeatedly – you cross a line into true propaganda.

This was something that was done repeatedly with Obama Messiah:

Mind you, John McCain benefitted from some visual propaganda, too.  Here’s a shot taken by photographer Jill Greenberg, who had been hired by The Atlantic:

Some might argue that Obama’s propaganda treatment was more favorable than McCain’s.  But that’s a judgment call.

Outright propaganda and the political left have always gone hand in hand.  From Stalin to Hitler to Mao to Castro and Che Guevara, we have always seen the media glorify their chosen leaders in pictures and print.

The media used propaganda to influence stupid peoples’ votes in so many ways.  Unfortunately, there are an awful lot of stupid people in this country.
