How Far Will the Left Go? Pretty Darn Far.

senior michael moore ad

So, this last week we’ve seen a young adult talking about her ‘first time’, an ad filled with sexual innuendo and references; followed by younger children with sad little faces and drawn mouths singing wanly about the wanton destruction of the country due to their parents’ foolish votes for republicans and now this:

MoveOn.org has teamed up with Michael Moore to produce a new pro Obama advertisement. Filmed in a supposed ‘nursing home’ the ad features scripted octo- and nonagenarians who tell us just what they’re going to do if Mitt Romney ‘steals’ the election. The commercial is vile and foul mouthed, not representative of the seniors most of us know and respect as the Greatest Generation.

Can this election get any further in the gutter? I don’t think so.
NOTE: This is the PG version. The ad is being promoted without the bleeps.

UPDATE: It has been pointed out that these are actors, probably paid, probably in heavy make up and probably following a script. That could surely be so. But it still gives me the heebie jeebies. tw

We cannot afford to be a silent majority.

VOTE November 6 to take back civility.

MoveOn Attacks Ryan With Lies

Here is the latest from MoveOn.org in the lie filled institutionalized “progressive” left’s smear campaign against Rep. Paul Ryan.  How does MoveOn expect anyone outside their ever shrinking “progressive” echo chamber think-alike tank to take them seriously? Not only are the assertions about Paul Ryan based on misrepresentations, distortions and outright falsehoods, the only “supportive evidence” provided are links to MoveOn.org and other “progressive” sites like Center for American Progress (funded by George Soros), Think Progress, Daily Kos, Huffington Post and The Advocate.  There is no question that the link sites are clearly biased in favor of “progressives” and are heartily devoted to spreading “progressive” propaganda.

If this is not a clear cut case of “I’m right because I said so” vapidity then 2 + 2 does not equal 4.

MoveOn even lies to its own people by saying MoveOn gets no big checks from CEOs.  Apparently they count on membership from uninformed people who have never heard of the huge donations MoveOn has received over the years from billionaire George Soros.

Below is the text as sent out in an email by MoveOn:

Dear MoveOn member,

Paul Ryan is bad for America. He’s anti-choice, and would give big tax cuts for millionaires, while raising taxes on the middle-class. He’s a Tea Party favorite who takes donations from the billionaire Koch brothers, and he introduced one of harshest and most inhumane budgets in recent history. His ideological hero for many years called selfishness a virtue and charity an abomination.

But most people don’t know just how bad Paul Ryan is. So we made this list of 10 things to know about Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick, Paul Ryan. Read it, then click here to share this list as an image on social media, or just forward this email! The future of America is on the line—from a woman’s right to choose to our economy.

10 Things to know about Paul Ryan

1. His economic plan would cost America 1 million jobs in the first year. Ryan’s proposed budget would cripple the economy. He’d slash spending deeply, which would not only slow job growth, but shock the economy and cost 1 million of us our jobs in 2013 alone and kill more than 4 million jobs by the end of 2014.1

2. He’d kill Medicare. He’d replace Medicare with vouchers for retirees to purchase insurance, eliminating the guarantee of health care for seniors and putting them at the mercy of the private insurance industry. That could amount to a cost increase of more than $5,900 by 2050, leaving many seniors broke or without the health care they need. He’d also raise the age of eligibility to 67.2

3. He’d pickpocket the middle class to line the pockets of the rich. His tax plan is Robin Hood in reverse. He wants to cut taxes by $4.6 trillion over the next decade, but only for corporations and the rich, like giving families earning more than $1 million a year a $300,000 tax cut. And to pay for them, he’d raise taxes on middle- and lower-income households and butcher social service programs that help middle- and working-class Americans.3

4. He’s an anti-choice extremist. Ryan co-sponsored an extremist anti-choice bill, nicknamed the ‘Let Women Die Act,’ that would have allowed hospitals to deny women emergency abortion care even if their lives were at risk. And he co-sponsored another bill that would criminalize some forms of birth control, all abortions, and in vitro fertilization.4

5. He’d dismantle Social Security. Ironically, Ryan used the Social Security Survivors benefit to help pay for college, but he wants to take that possibility away from future generations. He agrees with Rick Perry’s view that Social Security is a “Ponzi scheme” and he supported George W. Bush’s disastrous proposal to privatize Social Security.5

6. He’d eliminate Pell grants for more than 1 million low-income students. His budget plan cuts the Pell Grant program by $200 billion, which could mean a loss of educational funding for 1 million low-income students.6

7. He’d give $40 billion in subsidies to Big Oil. His budget includes oil tax breaks worth $40 billion, while cutting “billions of dollars from investments to develop alternative fuels and clean energy technologies that would serve as substitutes for oil.”7

8. He’s another Koch-head politician. Not surprisingly, the billionaire oil-baron Koch brothers are some of Ryan’s biggest political contributors. And their company, Koch industries, is Ryan’s biggest energy-related donor. The company’s PAC and affiliated individuals have given him $65,500 in donations.8

9. He opposes gay rights. Ryan has an abysmal voting record on gay rights. He’s voted to ban adoption by gay couples, against same-sex marriage, and against repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell.” He also voted against the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which President Obama signed into law in 2009.9

10. He thinks an “I got mine, who cares if you’re okay” philosophy is admirable. For many years, Paul Ryan devoted himself to Ayn Rand’s philosophy of selfishness as a virtue. It has shaped his entire ethic about whom he serves in public office. He even went as far as making his interns read her work.10

If there was ever any doubt that Mitt Romney’s got a disastrous plan for America—he made himself 100% clear when he picked right-wing extremist Paul Ryan as his running mate. Paul Ryan is bad for America, but we can’t beat him if Americans don’t know everything he stands for. Share this list with all your friends by clicking here, or simply forward this email.

Thanks for all you do.

Democrats Politicize Tragedy

guncontrol3

Just before 5pm yesterday, I received an email from MoveOn.org requesting yet again that I take action on something in the news – this time the massacre in Aurora, CO. When I first saw the item pop up in my inbox, I cringed, thinking that it might be yet another request for money for yet another ad. Thankfully, it wasn’t that, but it did request that I sign a petition.

Dear MoveOn member,

We all woke up to the tragic news of the killing of at least 12 people and the wounding of many more at a late-night screening of the new Batman movie in Colorado.

Reports indicate that the disturbed individual who committed this horrifying act had a bulletproof vest, used some kind of gas canister, and had multiple guns when he opened fire in the crowded theater.1 A three-month-old is among the injured.2

We are immeasurably sad for those who lost their lives, those wounded, and their families—and for all those who experienced the horror of those terrible moments. Let our thoughts and prayers go out to them today.

We’re also so angry. From children’s lives lost in school shootings, to Trayvon Martin, the Representative Gabrielle Giffords attack, and this latest slaughter of innocents, we are not safe from gun violence.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns has been campaigning to put a stop to senseless gun violence like this with commonsense measures, like fixing gun checks to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. They’ve started a petition in SignOn.org to demand action on ending gun violence.

Sadly, it often takes moments like these to bring politicians to their senses about guns. And while signing a petition seems so inadequate in the face of what happened last night, it’s important to do what we can. Today that means taking a small step toward preventing this kind of tragedy from happening again.

Sign the Mayors Against Illegal Guns petition to our leaders: “Join me in standing with the victims and families of the Aurora, Colorado shooting and pledge to end gun violence.”

The people who died at the Colorado theater last night are only 12 of the 34 people statistics tell us will die from gun violence today—and among 19,000 murdered with guns since the attack on Representative Giffords in Tuscon.3

And yet today isn’t about statistics. It’s about the pain of human loss—the loss suffered by the community of Aurora, Colorado. And the losses to gun violence suffered today and every day by other communities, whose tragic stories won’t be covered on the news.

It’s in the power of Congress to greatly reduce these senseless shootings and make tragedies like today’s far less possible. They can start by enacting commonsense measures, like fixing giant loopholes in gun checks, that are supported by the vast majority of Americans—including gun owners.4

Let our anger today help give them the courage to act tomorrow.

Sign the Mayors Against Illegal Guns petition to our leaders: “Join me in standing with the victims and families of the Aurora, Colorado shooting and pledge to end gun violence.”

The strength and support we draw from our friends, families, and communities are never more important than on days like today.

Thanks for all you do.

I’ve quoted the email in its entirety above, primarily because there is more than enough nonsense over misquotes and out-of-context statements. Of course this was entirely predictable, because the left simply never understands the problem isn’t lack of gun control. We can say until we’re blue in the face that these laws are meaningless to criminals and crazy people – if these individuals really want guns, they will get them one way or another, no matter what the laws are.

Contrary to what the left might like to make people think, the above is true – police do not tend to prevent crime. They occasionally do, but for the most part, they respond after the fact. And an armed citizenry remains the best defense against attacks. Today, it’s from the enemy within – criminals – as opposed to the potential invaders the Founders had in mind. While it’s logistically unlikely that any armed citizen could have prevented the massacre in Aurora, that does not help to make the case against creating more gun laws in response to this tragedy. The fact remains that the man who committed this act would have gotten the weapons he wanted regardless what the laws were.

As you can see above, the insane logic of the left knows no bounds. Of course, if the man in Colorado hadn’t been white, perhaps the Muslim card wouldn’t have been played in this way. The implication is that he was one of those “gun-clinging angry white men from the right wing.” That’s not a surprising assumption, since it had already been made by ABC’s Brian Ross. It was irresponsible, but probably irresistible for Ross. Talk about giving his left-wing bosses an issue on a platter! Wouldn’t it have been grand if the shooter had been a member of the Tea Party? It’s what left-wing media wet dreams are made of. But the truth may very well turn out to be a nightmare for them, if the rumors about the shooter being involved with the Occupy Movement turn out to be true. Now, that came from a private investigator as opposed to a journalist. Time will hopefully tell whether or not that one is accurate.

The fact is that right now, we do not enforce the current gun laws we have. Adding more laws will not change the situation. They will just end up being more words on the books that we don’t have the personnel or money in law enforcement to enforce in the first place. It might make people feel safer, or satisfied to make tougher gun laws, but that will end when the next tragedy comes along. I’ve avoided saying the name of the shooter in Aurora for a reason. He did this to get notoriety, and I refuse to give it to him. The vast majority of crazy people that don’t end up killing themselves after mass murder want the attention of the masses. You want a law that will have any hope of deterring their actions? Try stomping a little bit on the First Amendment, and forbid the press from giving mass murderers air time, kilobytes, and ink. Don’t give them what they want, and maybe – just maybe – they won’t do it. Of course, we’re dealing with insanity here, so it’s anyone’s guess what they’ll actually do anyway. But don’t give in to the liberal delusion that gun laws will save us from the crazies. They won’t. Sure, concealed carry couldn’t have helped in Aurora, unless someone happened to have a laser sight on their weapon – even that’s unlikely, though. But, there will come a time when the attack won’t be in the pitch black of a movie theater with hundreds of innocent people that could get hit by mistake. If the law-abiding citizens don’t have guns, they can’t stop that next crazy person. After all, gun laws don’t apply to criminals and crazies. So, just remember the following:

Evil Bank’s Student Loan Crushing Your Dreams? Not for Long.

These days, all the cool young protestors seem to be talking about one thing. The calls for beheading Wall Street executives have quieted down a little and the new focus is- student debt. Yes, those evil giant banks are at it again- forcing poor innocent students into taking massive loans with crushing interest rates that will haunt them for the rest of their adult lives.

There is a petition circling colleges- the Support the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012. To anyone with a rational mind, and even the slightest comprehension of how the free market works, the petition is laughable. The petition scathingly rips into the notion that higher education is an individual commodity rather than an investment in the ‘collective future’ of the nation.(Silly conservatives and their ideas about individualism.) It also boldly states that student loan forgiveness will stimulate the economy and restore the American dream for millions of middle class Americans struggling under the burden of their debt. Aw. With rhetoric like that, is it any surprise that the website, SignOn.org, is sponsored by the totally agenda-less George Soros funded MoveOn.org?

Oh to live in the world of liberal logic. Somehow, millions of defaulted loan payments just magically vanish and the economy is fantastic. Those defaulted payments don’t get passed on to investors and customers of the loan holder’s bank through increased fees to make up for the financial loss.

Even Steven Lerner, SEIU and Occupy Wall Street organizer, hinted that part of the next phase for the Occupy movement is student debt strikes. Lerner wrote in a recent article for the left-wing publication, The Nation “There is growing interest in Occupy and student groups in a student debt strike. The banks can’t foreclose on a brain or a degree. If a critical mass of student debtors—a million or more—pledged to refuse to pay, it would create a collection crisis that could force negotiations about reducing student debt.”

Those evil banks, asking poor, starving students to repay the money so generously loaned them. How dare they ask you to be accountable for your actions! How dare they limit your access to college education! A guaranteed human right! (Apologies to Thomas Jefferson, who’s probably rolling over in his grave). Because of course, handling debt responsibly and not taking on more than you can afford, is not an option.

Whatever happened to the self-made man? In the 21st century, where even if you don’t have high-speed internet access in your home (yet another basic human right those evil Republicans are trying to deprive the underprivileged of) you can go to any local library and use a computer, shouldn’t self-education be easier than ever? Basically every government organization and college has an online library where you can access important documents and research. Or crazier still, you could pull one of those dusty old books off a shelf. (Except then you’d probably just be accused of hating the environment.) But that would require you acting as an responsible, functioning individual in society rather than a piggy-backing parasite of the collective. After all, every enlightened liberal knows, personal responsibility and integrity are the crazy ideas of those pretentious old wig-wearing men who wrote that ridiculously outdated document all the disillusioned conservatives are still clinging to.

Moveon.org Takes Credit for Dodd-Frank Consequences

It’s been so long since we saw anything actionable come out of Obama’s MoveOn.org. Now, a letter from the organization is encouraging their base to pull their money out of banks.

Dear MoveOn member,

The big Wall Street banks crashed our economy, refused to clean up the mess, and still haven’t been held accountable.

Now the Occupy movement has inspired people everywhere to take action in protest and a lot of us have realized there’s something we can do to fight back: close our accounts and move our money out of the big Wall Street banks and into community banks and credit unions.

This week, in the lead-up to the November 5 Make Wall Street Pay day of action targeting the giant banks, we’ve set up a new “Move Your Money Pledge.” Our goal is to get as many people as possible pledging to close their accounts with the big banks.

Are you ready to show the Wall Street banks that we’re going to hold them accountable ourselves? If you’re ready to stop banking with Wall Street—or if you already have—click here to sign the Move Your Money pledge:

Yes, I want to sign the Move Your Money pledge.

By signing the pledge you’ll be able to turn your private choice as a bank customer into a powerful public display of outrage and protest by joining tens of thousands of others who are ready to switch banks and close accounts.

We have resources available to help you find a new bank and a guide for how to go through the process of closing an account. Whether it’s a spare credit card, a savings account, or your personal checking, every account counts.

If we can get a huge number of accounts closed at the major banks we’ll certainly impact their bottom line, but we’ll also do something even more powerful—we’ll send them a very clear message that the public’s outrage is only growing stronger and that we’re not going to let them off the hook for the damage they’ve done to our economy.

Can you sign the pledge and close an account?

Yes, I’ll sign the pledge.

Thanks for all you do.

–Daniel, Elena, Robin, Stefanie, and the rest of the team

There are a few key things to pay attention to in the letter. First is the credit given to Occupy Wall Street – as if it has anything to do with why people are already moving from big banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America to local community banks and credit unions. The real culprit is the Obama-supported Dodd-Frank bill which forced banks to move fees from retailers to bank customers.

As a result of Dodd-Frank, fees that used to be included in the prices of goods and services at the time of purchase are now being put upon bank customers whether they buy those goods or not. Seeing that added cost on bank statements has people leaving the big banks in droves for credit unions and home town banks. Any thoughts on whether retailers will reduce their prices as this goes into effect?

The additional fees are what have customers making the switch – not some letter from MoveOn.org. That won’t stop MoveOn.org from taking credit for the huge number of switch-overs once they occur – mark my words on that.

Another key phrase is “We have resources available to help you find a new bank..” – of course they do. No way their bank choices might be politically motivated…

This is but another instance of the Obama organization trying to  find a way to spin a positive from a mess that they created. Dodd-Frank is causing a consumer shift from one set of financial institutions to another. Instead of considering the implications of that unintended consequence – they’ll spin it and take credit.

 

H/T @pcam for tweeting about the MoveOn letter

CPUSA–> Obama’s Jobs Bill–> OccupyWallStreet

   Communism, Socialism, OccupyWallStreet, and Barack Obama’s Jobs Bill all nestled together under one all-telling blanket. 

While the following excerpts may sound familiar to some, the underlying repercussions that come with them may very well  surprise most of our readers:

“A better and peaceful world is possible- a world where people and nature come before profits.”  That may sound rosy enough at the outset,  until we see what directly follows that statement:

“That’s Socialism. That’s our vision. We are The Communist Party USA. That statement is brought to you by the CPUSA’s current homepage. When indoctrinating America’s youth, Communists always start out with championing Socialism. The Socialist Workers Party was/is just another stealth front group for Communist indoctrination through the use of  the term “workers” also. The infamous National Socialist  German Workers Party was widely known as the NAZI Party, which hid behind  title, The German Workers Party prior to a name change in 1920. The term NAZI is German and stems from Nationalsozialist.  That little history lesson, while many folks may view it as irrevelant towards today’s American Politics, should never be forgotten, as history truly does have a way of repeating itself over and over. What is also troubling is the fact that we even have a Communist party in America today.

Now for some more tidbits from the CPUSA homepage we see the following link to an article from People’s World  titled: America’s kids tell their stories from their Wall Street Camp.

While the article goes on to tell stories of the cute “kids” at the protests, it also carries a very heavy undercurrent of anti-capitalistic indoctrination in it. Take this paragraph for instance:

Esmeralda, Youth Council President of the Mid Manhattan NAACP, and two friends are camping out together. Esmeralda, 17, says she’s had “lots of internships, but never a real job.” Her high school is just across the street from Zuccotti Park and she’s been joining her friends Chilligan, 19, and Nicole, 20 at the park every day after class.

Maybe a little less time spent as a 17-yr old Youth President of the NAACP and a little more time applying herself at school would lead to a decent job and/or qualify her for college one day in the future. 17 years old and already an anti-capitalist community organizer complaining she doesn’t have  a job. What she really means that everyone has the right to a $20.00 an hour job, regardless of employment as seen here. This is what we see more and more of every day in America, thanks to the indoctrination of our youth in the classrooms. They get out into the real world only to discover that they do not have a basic set of skills to actually put towards working for a living. we see this pattern in virtually all of the “stories about the kids at Wall Street Camp” in that article. Socialists are experts at playing the victim card while actually creating more victims by indoctrinating them into hating capitalism and worshiping the nanny state. That’s Socialism.

Also found on today’s CPUSA homepage is also this unmitigated lie being told to the uninformed masses of American youth: “Socialism will meet the needs of the great majority of our people and lay the basis for solving our social, economic and environmental problems.”  Did you catch that statement, all you kids at the Wall Street camps?  Put on your Mao and Che shirts, denounce capitalism, become a Socialist puppet, and you are well on your way to the Communist Utopia where poof!, all our problems will auto-magically disappear! What the Communist propagandists fail to tell you is that Communism leads to bread lines and wide-spread poverty 100% of the time. ( Unless you are enslaved to the government dictatorship that feeds and clothes you in exchange for serving  the state, in which case they shall deem you important enough to keep alive until you outlive your usefulness, or just get too old to work)  The lies being told about supposedly being a slave to evil capitalism somehow forget to inform people of the benefits of capitalism, such as the freedom to live and work where you choose, the right towards prosperity through hard work and opportunity, and the right to worship as you choose. You get none of that under a Communist dictatorship, period. Just speaking out against government abuses of the people can get you imprisoned for life, or even killed in all Communist countries. Beware of the Socialism pimps, as they are always working towards creating a Communist state in the end. History shows that to be an undeniable fact, unless your  unionized history teacher is a Socialist Workers Party USA member wearing a Che T-shirt in class. In that case you need to go straight home and inform your parents about what is going on, and demand that the situation be addressed immediately. American schools are for teaching our children true American and world history, and about the proven American exceptionalism that has made this the greatest, freest nation on earth for over 200 years. Leave the Socialist/Communist indoctrination out of our schools please.

Last but certainly not least, we see another revelation on the CPUSA’s homepage that should open the eyes of all Americans today:

Organizing for Jobs,Jobs,Jobs.  “The Great Recession of 2008 is looking more like the Great Depression of the 1930s. The economic crisis of U.S. (and world) capitalism is entering its fourth year.” (emphasis mine) next up they make the pitch that the only way to improve our economy is for the government to somehow create jobs. (Nanny-state enslavement 101 kids) ** Note: Nowhere in the United States Constitution is it stated that the government has the power to interfere in the private sector free market system or “create jobs” with taxpayer dollars. Funny thing about Communists, Marxists and Socialists: they all believe in radical change/overthrow of governments to mold society to fit their Utopian ideology. That means ignoring our constitution or eventually abolishing it all together eventually. President Obama wants another half a billion tax payer dollars to supposedly create jobs. The CPUSA wants you to know that they support his plan.

“Two weeks ago President Obama introduced the American Jobs Act to a joint session of Congress. It is sure to meet stiff resistance from the Republicans in Congress. A massive outcry of millions of American people insisting on the Act’s passage is necessary.” (emphasis mine)

In that last statement we see the communist Party USA parroting the exact same thing Barack Obama has been telling people across the nation in dozens of speeches. Coincidence? Not hardly. CPUSA takes it one step further in mentioning other Obama political-operative groups, such as the AFL-CIO and moveon.org:

“America Wants to Work (AFL-CIO) in alliance with many community and activist organizations including Moveon.org are organizing a week of actions Oct. 10-16 demanding jobs. Thousands of grassroots actions, marches, vigils, delegations and speak-outs are being planned in cities and neighborhoods across the country.”

Isn’t there already a group of wanna-be Socialists posing as a grassroots movement, protesting against capitalism and Wall Street bankers? Oh yes that would be the astro-turfing Occupy Wall Street protesters we see today. Further proof of the indoctrination of our youth by Union ( Socialist Workers party) teacherscanalso be found in this announcement at CPUSA: “A national National Teach-in called Students and Youth Rising for Jobs and Economic Justice will take place Oct. 12.” Isn’t that a hell of a coincidence there?

Communist Party USA —>  Occupy Wall Street —-> AFL-CIO —> Barack Obama’s very own moveon.org, all working together for the common cause of getting out and organizing for the passage of Obama’s jobs bill while protesting evil capitalism !   What a lovely team.   2012 just can’t get here soon enough! 

 

Special update just for the annonynous pest trying to propagandize our comment section here at CDN:  Since DAY1  in New York look who has been behind the OWS protests! Thank you Andrew Breitbart.   Meet the career anarchist posing as a New-Yorker who is actually from Texas.

 

 

Spinning the Downgrade

On Friday, S&P downgraded the U.S. credit rating to AA+ from AAA. The downgrade report complained that the debt ceiling deal did not do enough to stem the tide of future deficits and debt.

While the report blamed no political parties, politicians, groups, or approaches as the reason for the shortfall, Democrats have been falling over themselves to blame Conservatives for the negative credit rating.

John Kerry came out and applied bias where there was none on Meet the Press Sunday.

Justin Ruben, executive director at MoveOn.org, an extreme left-wing organization, expressed outrage at the President for not taking a more aggressive stance against fiscal Conservatives.

“It’s a terrible deal that will destroy jobs and big part of reason is because president accepted the premise that it was okay to hold economy hostage,” Ruben said. “Instead of saying, ‘this is outrageous’ and ‘You will not threaten the full faith and credit of the U.S.,’ and telling America what the Republicans are doing, he sat down and said, ‘let’s bargain’ and tried to show he was more reasonable.”

Ruben’s demand for less compromise is in direct opposition to the President’s attempts to bring both sides together. Mr. Ruben’s spun the whole outcome by saying that the deal itself is what threatens the “full faith and credit of the U.S.”. Incorrect. Had Obama toed the line with Ruben’s idea of raising the debt limit without curtailing spending or raising revenue, two more ratings agencies would likely have joined in the downgrade. Only because some slowdown in spending was present in the bill at all did Fitch and Moody’s leave the nation’s AAA rating in-place.

On the Sunday circuit, progressive talking points were prevalent. “We can’t cut our way out of this recession” was heard loud and clear. This a variation on Obama’s, “we can’t cut our way to prosperity” theme. While we haven’t even tried spending cuts as a method to save the economy, we have empirical evidence that taxing and spending our way to recovery does not work.

The rising-star, progressive commentator and writer Ezra Klein tweeted, “This didn’t happen because an earthquake wrecked our factories or a plague hit our workers. It was Congress. Particularly GOP in Congress.” in reference to the S&P downgrade.

The more honest perspective is that Speaker Boehner had accepted an Obama administration deal that included over $800 Billion in revenue enhancement (lefty-speak for increased taxation). Obama then came back to the table with an additional $400 Billion in demanded taxes while still keeping Medicare, food stamps and Social Security off the table – turning compromise into arm twisting.

The spin is working. Liberal forums are full of comments where the democrat-faithful are extremely upset at the lack of reporting that the S&P report specifically calls out Republicans for having obstructed the debt deal. They will have to remain upset for quite some time as the report contains no such admonition. In fact, the report is careful to make no comments for or against either party nor does it recommend either cutting nor taxation as the chosen remedy.

S&P had needed to see $4 trillion in deficit reduction – the deal only delivered $2.7 trillion. If the democrats had gotten what they originally demanded, there would be $0.

If not for the Conservatives, this downgrade would have come faster, may have been worse (AA-) and could have included Fitch and Moody’s lowering the nation’s ratings as well. If the politicians in Washington fail to cut the deficit by much more than Conservatives already have, we will see further downgrades in the coming months and all the scary stuff that Democrats threatened the country with before the debt deal. Perhaps even that “Satan Sandwich”.

The Democratic Attack Machine

The war of 2012 (elections) is heating up already, and it is sure to be a long hot summer in American politics. The New Democratic Attack Machine is ramping up it’s misinformation messaging platform today like never before seen in American politics. From everything coming out of the Liberal media to the newest Internet propaganda czar being paid by your tax dollars to spread misinformation, this latest version of the Democratic Attack Machine is actually anything but “new”.  As a matter of fact it is the same old tired retread of the very same propaganda machines that fake democrats have used for decades, but it is just that they do not want you to recognize it for what it actually is. While the Liberal Democrats attempt to infect America with the cancerous Socialism that has crushed economies across the globe, one must remember that the original Communistic oppressors used Socialist propaganda decades ago to collapse economies worldwide. The American Constitution has protected against this cancer for over 200 years, yet today the infection is so widespread throughout our government and media that we are now facing financial insolvency under the crushing weight of our massive debt problem, largely thanks to the far left Liberal Democratic Attack Machine.

The Demcratic Attack Machine consists of today’s mainstream media, Liberal democrats, and the head rabble-rousing community organizer pictured above, Barack Hussein Obama, all rolled into one Socialistic web of deceit. Back in 2008, The Democratic Attack Machine, led by the Liberal media, installed Obama into the White House simply by bullying the cowardly Senator John McCain into denying him the ability to bring out major negative truths about Obama. Truths such as Obama sitting in a black racist, anti-American church headed by the nasty Rev Wright for twenty years, while the hate-monger screamed G/D America! Truths such as Mr Obama’s close ties with weather-ground terrorist and murderer Bill Ayers, whose living room Barack Obama announced his run for the U.S. Senate from during an Ayers sponsored fundraiser. Truths such as when the Republican party of North Carolina ran an ad exposing these important issues about Mr. Obama, Mr. (afraid of the media bullies) McCain announced that they would not run those types of campaign ads and demanded they pull them! This cowardice and progressive-like truth denial by McCain led many voters to accepting the flat out lies by the media propagandists that all of this information was somehow just a smear campaign by the then non-existent Republican attack machine. That led Americans to elect the far, far, left radical ideologue of one Barack Hussein Obama to the most powerful position in the world, the U.S. presidency. The refusal of John McCain to tell these truths now has the U.S. on the verge of  financial insolvency, and one has to wonder just why in the hell the progressive puppet and cowardly John McCain still holds a powerful position in America as a U.S. Senator! Are American votes this stupid and uninformed? Apparently they were, back in 2008, with the help of the brainwashing propaganda coming out of the Liberal controlled media arm of the Democratic Party.

Americans may have been slow to see through the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda and pre-planned infection of America by installing far left liberal Barack Obama into the White House, but they did wise up in 2010, after they could not deny the fact that the media was a major factor in helping Liberal Democrats cram the unwanted Socialistic Obama-Care down the throats of Americans through legislative trickery and the flat out ignoring of our Constitution and Congressional rules. Again there was no Republican attack machine present to expose the treasonous government takeover of our health care system, and instead Americans from across the spectrum had to take to grass roots groups and the Internet to expose Obama-care for what it truly is: Socialistic wealth redistribution, stealing 500 billion dollars from Seniors medicare to pay for non-producing freeloaders and the welfare class, while also counting that same 500 billion twice as an accounting gimmick to fool Americans into thinking this scam would somehow reduce health-care costs, increase health-care coverage for millions of people, and reduce the national debt all at the same time! After all, the media, while working tirelessly from within the Democratic Attack Machine, told Americans 24/7 that Obama-care would do all of the aforementioned lies on a daily basis. The people saw through the Democratic Attack Machine’s lies and misinformation, and gave Liberal Democrats the boot from their government in record numbers at local, state and national levels in 2010! Much to the dismay of the establishment GOP, this didn’t come as a result of the old guard GOP running effective, truth-telling informative campaigns across America, but in fact, this came as a result of the grass roots Tea Party Americans countering The Democratic Attack Machine’s massive mainstream media propaganda at every turn, mainly on the Internet information highways, such as Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

Fast forward to today and we see that The Democratic Attack Machine just stole an election in N.Y. simply by portraying Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal as pushing poor old Granny off a cliff in her wheelchair! At least this is the excuse/propaganda that the media and the GOP are promoting recently. The fact remains that the GOP sat on their rear ends, and let the Democratic Attack Machine steal that election without any hint of an effort by the GOP to quickly counter the misinformation, or even an effort to promote a solid conservative up there. To sum it up, they took that election for granted and got burned big time, to hear the long-time N.Y. State GOP political leaders tell it. This is a prime example on how the lack of a Republican attack machine, or at least a decent effort to engage in the election in N.Y. has now given the Democratic Attack Machine a new platform for stealing elections by spreading misinformation and propaganda on a grand scale in 2012. Now the Liberal Democrats are supposed to be the new best friend of all American Seniors, even though they just stole $500 billion dollars of their health care coverage to pass Obama-Care. How ridiculous is that?

Recently, Barack Obama added a new taxpayer funded member to the Democratic Attack Machine’s ranks, in the form of  a new Internet Propaganda Czar named Jesse Lee, who also happens to be married to another member of the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda groups, one MoveOn.org. Where in the hell is the GOP House Speaker, Mr. John Boehner on this abuse of taxpayer dollars? Since when does the President of the United States of America have the authority to use taxpayer dollars to fund the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda campaign? The truth behind Mr. Lee’s recent position within our government is not to counter the non-existent Republican attack machine that Liberals and Obama used to scream about, but is in fact, Obama’s attempt to counter the truths being exposed about his anti-American agenda on the Internet by Americans across the land. The truth shall set us free from Obama and the Liberals in 2012, no matter how many propagandists The Democratic Attack Machine throws at us.

* This article was partly made possible by Ann Coulter and her book “Guilty“, as the very detailed facts behind the Democratic Attack Machine were so well exposed there that it compelled me to write this article. Thank you Ann, for a great expose’ on the Liberal media and how they are truly the head of The Democratic Attack Machine. I will also be doing a thorough book review here at CDN on “Guilty” soon, as this is definitely a must read for all concerned Americans as we head into the 2012 election campaign!

 

 

Wisconsin Protests Go Nationwide: The Radical Agenda

Today we are being told that the Union protests will spread across the nation. I believe this could be the start of what Glenn Beck has exposed as self-professed Communist activist Van Jones’  top down, bottom up, inside out theory of radically transforming America. Remember that these people follow the mantra of , “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”   Mr. Jones was injected into our government as the “Green Jobs Czar” by one Barack Hussein Obama as an appointee with the approval of longtime Chicago confidant Valerie Jarrett, who is now in our very own Whitehouse as a senior advisor  to Barack Obama also. Her prior qualifications to be directly involved in our government today? She is a known Chicago slumlord who was once the Chief of Staff for the King of Chicago corruption, Ex-Mayor Richard Daley. His youngest son, Bill Daley is also Obama’s new Chief of staff in our Whitehouse. Mr Jones can be seen in the photo to the left promoting riots in trying to free a convicted cop killer. This man  certainly gives a  new meaning to the term,”community Organizer.” Mr. Jones is calling for nationwide protests against All state governments starting today, in conjunction with Obama’s heavily State government embedded, UNIONS. This is seizing upon the manufactured crisis in Wisconsin and their mantra of not letting a good crisis go to waste.

Lisa Gras, a very dedicated and informative writer, has put together an excellent article on billionaire economic terrorist George Soros  that should be read  by all Americans who are not familiar with the puppet-master, government overthrowing economic terrorist Mr. George Soros.  http://lisagraas.com/2011/02/05/five-revolutions-backed-by-george-soros/ Soros backed the Liberal Democrats back in the 2008 election, pouring millions into the campaigns of  BOTH  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One way or the other, Mr. Soros was guaranteeing that he would have a place at the Whitehouse dinner table and he succeeded. Without Whitehouse support, this word re-known economic terrorist would certainly find himself rotting in an American prison today. Soros was found guilty of insider trading after a 14 year investigation in France* and was fined 2.3 million dollars. This is a man who is also famous for breaking the Bank of England , and was  caught by the SEC here in America  in a stock trading scandal back in 1979, and agreed that he wouldn’t do it anymore. No criminal charges were filed there. The laws about insider trading differ greatly from one country to another. Unlike American law, French law does not provide for civil enforcement actions in insider trading cases; they may be pursued here only as criminal matters. Mr Soros is also known as a man without a country today, yet he is now spending most of his time here in the United States.

In the above referenced article by Lisa Gras, that well-researched and very informative article shows us how George Soros has been undermining governments across the globe since 1984, leading right to the doorstep of the recent Middle East upheaval. What does this have to do with  the current Wisconsin protests, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and Barack Hussein Obama and now the Communist Party USA ?  Apparently more than most people currently know in this country today. Every one of the countries that George Soros was involved in written in Lisa’s article have one thing in common:  The overthrowing of governments through George Soros financed quasi-covert political operations. This also always involves the corruption of the Media, as Soros has poured millions of dollars into newspapers, Tv stations, media networks, etc. He recently gave huge amountss of s=csahs to leftist groups, such as MoveOn.org and The Huffington Post. Here you can see how they have signed up today to promote the protests across America. http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/index.html?action_id=238 This is a bid to protect the progressive movement’s power base for the 2012 elections, folks, nothing more. These puppets could care less about the American people and their quality of life.  Soros also seems to monitor political situations worldwide , and then has shown the uncanny ability to sow the seeds of discontent among the people of those countries at just the right time, resulting in “the fundamental transformation” of those countries and new governments being formed. With our States rights blocking the Federal Government’s intrusions into their own governments, the George Soros funded Liberal agenda can not advance their plans and they know this. Thus they are desperately trying to turn the Wisconsin budget crisis into a national issue. For those of you blindly worshipping Mr. Barack Hussein Obama still today, I shall include a very relative direct quote from Mr. Obama right here and right now:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America

While that now famous statement, uttered at the beginning of candidate Obama’s speech at The University of Missouri, on Feb. 19th, 2008, seemed relatively harmless at the time, when we look at the Soros pattern of undermining governments across the globe, coupled with what we see happening in America today, that statement should be very disconcerting to even the most naive of Americans today.  For the Liberal deniers of reality that want to say Obama didn’t say that,  here is the video link, provided  just to prove it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ffwY74XbS4 The problem that I have with the Obama/Soros transformation of America motto, is that it is as Anti-American at it’s roots as another group, cpusa.org , that is being rallied to join the protest today by the Communist Van Jones. Right on their homepage they announce their participation in today’s protests.  His rallying cry across the leftist stratosphere here in America to join with their Union brothers today in the protests contained another covert codeword for ratcheting up these protests across America: Solidarity. These radical Anti-Americans are now trying to turn this country into another mish mash of Communists/Socialist power brokers just like in the dysfunctional Afrika we see today. The divide and conquer theory is being heavily applied here and it is being ratcheted up today across America in the attempted dismantling of State Sovereignty. Thus the importance of Governor Scott Walker and others, in standing their ground against the Unions, Liberals, Socialists and Communists marching to the beat of George Soros, Barack Obama, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and their very clear Anti-American agenda.

I pray there will be no violence in these radical, State government protests today that clearly represent a clear and present danger to America and her people. These paid George Soros puppets, Unions thugs, Liberal Socialists and Communists will be out in force today with the direct support of todays Democratic Party. Remember this in 2012.  Since Barack Obama has not denounced this form of domestic terrorism upon the working taxpayers of America, we must only conclude one thing:  He supports it 100%. This is how he plans on “Winning the Future” here in America, starting today.

Bust the Unions ? You Betcha!

      Bust all public sector Unions and bar them from the taxpayer’s wallet, and do it today. It is time to put this circus to bed. Democracy does not include 10% of the population forcing their will on the majority of the people who pay their salaries. It is that simple.

 PhotoStory1   <-  Click the link here to see some of the lovely misfits and nasty rhetoric on display courtesy of these Union’s example of the so-called civil discourse President Obama called for recently. The wonderful people of Wisconsin surely must be very embarrassed with this circus being shown across the country. To be fair, Unions only make up about 10% of the population today, but this kind of lunacy and ugliness should be denounced by everyone in Wisconsin and across America. Many readers here will be asking themselves why they do not see this nastiness and disrespect on the news today?  The news media seem content to paint the Unions as representing all of the working people in America today. That couldn’t be further from the truth and they know it, yet they still refuse to show the people the real types of  tactics and nastiness the Unions are using up in Wisconsin. That is why I took the time to create a little slice of truth up there in that slide show.

Today there have been hints of threatened violence to come in Wisconsin, if Governor Walker does not bend to their demands. One such threat contained the statement, “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary getting boots on the ground and getting bloody.”  The person who uttered that?  U. S.Congressman, Mike Capuano. (D-MA)   The nasty, thug-faced,  head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka marched right into the fray to put in his two cents in trying to protect his lavish Union head lifestyle and bargaining power. Do not forget the massive Union Obamacare waivers Trumka’s thugs just received. That is right, Obama decided these same Unions will not have to live under the same healthcare laws as the rest of the working people. A total of over 2 million workers are now safe from Obamacare, thanks to those “special waivers.” Anyone who thinks the DNC and Obama in particular, doesn’t expect payback for those “special waivers” in the 2012 elections is either very naive, or just plain stupid.

This battle is not over worker’s rights, as the media would like you to believe. This is a battle over the DNC being allowed to control and influence elections through Union political activities and campaign funding. Without the Union graft and bribery, the DNC will be in even worse shape in 2012, than it was during the historic beating they received in 2010. The DNC is fighting for the life of it’s base elections engineering Brownshirt Union army. Without Unions taking member’s dues and using them to buy elections and pay get out the vote operations, the DNC can forget about “Winning The Future.” in 2012 and beyond.  Yes ,it is that simple. Obama didn’t sic his attack dogs from OFA, (Organizing for America) MoveOn.org, Think Progress, Media Matters and DailyKos on Governor Walker to protect the poor working folks up in Wisconsin. No Sir, this Community Organizer in Chief is trying to cover his own bet on winning another term in 2012. Obama has proven to be hugely incompetent in running this country, but if there is one thing he does know, it’s how to organize sheep to control and win elections through any means necessary. Why do you think he created the pathetically mis-named Organizing for America?

Scott Walker was elected to be the Governor of Wisconsin. His duties include a mandatory balancing of the budget. If Barack Husein Obama doesn’t approve of that, I will have to say,” I,m sorry Barry, but we won the elections, and elections have consequences.” It’s high time Obama starts acting a little more like a President instead of a low-life community organizer making a living blackmailing corporations, businesses, and now the blackmailing and bullying of States. Governor Walker is going to pass a balanced budget come hell or high water people. That is something Obama and the Democrats have proven to have no knowledge of today. When is the last time our federal government actually passed a budget, let alone a balanced one ? We rang up the debt all of last year without any semblance of a budget. 5 months into this year and again we have no budget, and with Democrats still in charge of the Senate getting one passed any time soon will be impossible. Of course, the Democrats, led by Obama, have proven that they do not mind running the country on illegal continuing resolutions. Those blank checks on the taxpayer’s account allow them to pile on another trillion and a half in debt with very little accountability. The honorable Scott Walker will not let that happen to the people of Wisconsin, Union thugs and obstructionist Democrats be damned.
