Things To Consider As Obama’s Propagandists Attack Rick Perry For His Remark About Bernanke

August 17, 2011

The mainstream media and the Obama administration are trying to make the most of Rick Perry’s remark:

“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what you all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas,” Perry said. “Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost … treasonous in my opinion.”

Charles Krauthammer said that it was somewhat tactless for Rick Perry to use the “t” word to describe what he and almost every other conservatives agrees is fiscally despicable behavior on the part of Obama’s Federal Reserve Chairman and the Obama Fed.  And then Krauthammer turned the shining white-hot lens back at Obama and pointed out that Obama is engaging in this very same conduct every time he demonizes Republicans as the political equivalent of terrorists, and that he is basically too cunning (I would have chosen the word ‘weaselly’) to use the “t” word when his rhetoric clearly matches it.

Recently, Obama claimed that Republicans basically wanted to turn America into a banana republic.

As one example, Obama said this:

BARACK OBAMA, (D) PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: “The only thing that is holding us back is our politics. The only thing that prevents us from passing the bills I just mentioned is the refusal of a faction in Congress to put country ahead of party. And that has to stop. I need your help sending a message to Congress that it’s time to put politics aside and get something done.”

Geez, I wonder what “faction” of which “party” that eagerly puts party ahead of country, and seeks to hurt the country for political gain.  Because, I mean, that would be practically, well, treasonous.

And then Obama said this:

Some in Congress would rather see their opponents lose than America win … we can’t have patience with that kind of behavior anymore,” Obama told a crowd.

Which prompted this dose of rational commentary on Obama’s transparent tactic:

He’s accusing his opponents of being unpatriotic, and at some point the next step is [accusing them of] being traitorous,” Michael Franc, vice president for government studies at the Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Caller Monday afternoon. “If Michele Bachmann had said ‘If you disagree with me, you’re unpatriotic,’ [Democrats] would be calling it a loyalty oath or a religious test,” Franc said.

And of course it would – and the media would be all over Obama for his vicious demoagic tactics – if they were even remotely honest.

What Michael Franc said is obviously true.  But the media simply won’t report Obama’s words.  I had a very easy time finding Perry’s rhetoric and a very difficult time finding Obama’s.  But Obama is doing the very same thing that everybody and their dog is accusing Perry of doing.

Krauthammer responds to Obama’s tactics:

KRAUTHAMMER:When the president accuses the Republicans of putting party over country and another stop he said they want America to fail so they will succeed politically, that is a sophisticated way of essentially accusing the Republicans of near treasonous behavior. He is sophisticated and practiced and articulate so he won’t use the word the way Perry did. But it’s the same idea.

BAIER: Are you suggesting that Texas Governor Perry is not articulate?

KRAUTHAMMER: I’m saying the way he articulated attack on Bernanke was a demonstration that he does not have the art and the artful way of presenting it that Obama does.

It’s an essentially an equivalent claim. These people care nothing about country, only about self-interest and politics and reelection. So “A,” it demonstrates that the president is practiced at this. Perry could use practice. But it’s essentially the same unhealthy kind of attack. It’s really something neither party ought to do.

And the president combines it with a pretense that he stands above all of this. But look at this scene. He is on a political trip, which he pretends is not. Therefore our tax money is paying for this trip under the pretense that he is explaining his policies. It’s clearly a campaign trip. It’s all a stump speech.

So he is on political trip in which he accuses his opponents of playing politics when he himself is engaged of politics at the same time and pretending only he speaks in the name of the national interest. He does it over and over again. I know it’s going to be a theme of his campaign. If you call out Perry on his use of that, I’d call out the president on that as well.

OBAMA has been putting his narrow partisan political interests ahead of the well-being of the United States and America and the American people ever since the day he came to office.  His boondoggle stimulus that cost the American people $3.27 TRILLION and pissed away our resources – and went overwhelmingly to Democrat districts.  His unconstitutional ObamaCare that he rammed down America’s throat along with its more than 160 death panels. His hostile takeover of the financial industry a.k.a. the Dodd-Frank act.  His being in the pocket of labor unions on issue after issue.  And he’s the guy who is lecturing us about putting country ahead of party and partisan interest?!?!?

Hey, Obama, how about if you pay for your damn bus tour instead of making the American people pay for it since it is obviously a campaign tour?!?!  I mean, given that you alone are above politics and all…

But, of course, the mainstream media would report on any of the above (other than the stuff that makes Rick Perrylook bad), because that would be fair and objective and honest.  And today’s media is none of those things.

I actually believe Perry’s taking on Fed policies – which are impoverishing grandmas and grandpas to enrich The State, and which have destroyed 3.5 million jobs – is a dang good idea.

Ron Paul rightly compares this policy of artificially creating money out of thin air with counterfeiting. The federal government is counterfeiting its own money, with the same exact motive that all other counterfeiters have.

The White House jumped all over this, self-righteously proclaiming, “We take the independence of the Federal Reserve quite seriously and certainly think threatening the Fed chairman is probably not a good idea.”  But other than the fact that just who in their right mind actually believes Rick Perry physically threatened Bernanke with literal violence?!?!?  I would point out that shouldn’t Obama therefore take the independence of the Supreme Court quite seriously, too?  And yet Obama has REPEATEDLY belittled their rulings.  In one speech Obama deceitfully demonized the court for exercising it’s “independence,” prompting Samuel Alito to mouth the words “That’s not true” to Obama’s demagogic attack.  And it was just today that Obama essentially said that either the Supreme Court would rule the way he wanted them to rule on ObamaCare, or they would be making up the law like some sort of kangaroo court:

“If the Supreme Court follows existing precedent, existing law, it should be upheld without a problem,” Obama said. “If the Supreme Court does not follow existing law and precedent, then, you know, we’ll have to manage that when it happens.”

But hey, refusing to honor the independence of one of the three branches of our government (the executive, the legislature and THE JUDICIARY) established by our Constitution is nothing.  Refusing to honor a Federal Reserve Entity having nothing whatsoever to do with our Constitution and in fact flying in the very face of it is quite another, indeed.

If Rick Perry used a word that cunning, weaselly political strategists say is ill-advised to describe his personal and political disgust and contempt for a disgusting and contemptible fiscal and political policy by an out-of-control Federal Reserve system, I can live with that.  In fact, I’m just glad that somebody is out there on my side who is willing to get in somebody’s face over the crap that is imploding our country.

Conservatives are beyond furious. They want a candidate who will punch Barack Obama right in the mouth and then keep punching until he is politically down on his back and able to get up. The last thing we want to see is another wimpy establishment candidate refuse to go after Obama as a guy who spent 23 years in a racist, Marxist, anti-American “God damn America!” church.

Racist, because imagine the Republican candidate having spent 23 years in a church with a WHITE values system and a commitment to the WHITE family. Because Obama’s “church” continued to spout racism while Obama was there and after he finally left it to cover his political backside. Because imagine the Republican candidate being so inspired of the equivalent of “White folk’s greed runs a world in need” – maybe “Black folk’s crime runs a world of slime” – and being so inspired he writes a book bearing the same title as that sermon.

Marxist because the “liberation theology” that Trinity United preached every single day was Marxist to its core, deriving from Marxist priests who were aiding the Marxist Sandinistas in Nicaragua. Because then Cardinal Ratziger (Now Pope Benedict) officially pronounced liberation theology as coming “from radically marxist positions”. Because the Obama Party is the Party of self-avowed communist Van Jones. Because the “reverend” who was Obama’s “spiritual mentor” is an open Marxist and socialist. Because the Communist Party USA backed Obama in the last election and is backing him in this one, too. And because just what the hell is the difference between Obama’s redistribution of wealth agenda and Karl Marx’s redistribution of wealth agenda?

Anti-American because Obama’s church and Obama’s presidency is “GOD DAMN AMERICA!” Because this is the Cloward and Piven presidency to implode America so it would be forced to embrace communism. Because it continues to the Cloward and Piven administration that is looking to achieve communism in America. Because we have continued to see that this is the Cloward and Piven ideology unfolding in hopes of imploding America.

Conservatives are looking for a guy who will tear into Barack Obama like a junkyard dog going after a thief who’s trying to rob its master. Only in this case the thief was a cynical liar who illegitimately seized the White House in 2008 with a fraudulent campaign of lies, and the “master” is the American people who need someone to fight for them.

You’ve got to be smart and polished, Governor Perry.  Because the same dishonest mainstream media that overlooks Obama’s and Democrats’ constant vile rhetoric will eagerly report every single thing you say that either crosses the line or that they can make appear to have crossed the line.

It’s up to Governor Perry to do a better job walking through the long field of land mines the media will place in his path.  And it is up to every single Republican and conservative and tea party member to keep a documented record of everything that Obama and the Democrats say so we can play the game of finger-pointing that is the quintessential tactic of liberals.
