Former MSNBC Host Calls Santorum A “Lunatic” And Compares Him To Mussolini

After six years of comparing George W. Bush to Hitler, it looks like the Left has decided to compare Republican politicians to other notorious world leaders.  I can only only imagine that if Newt Gingrich gets the nomination, he might be compared to Genghis Khan.  Here’s Cenk Uygur comparing Rick Santorum to Benito Mussolini.

While the comparison in the video is definitely “old tone”, it does give preview to something we should expect, if Santorum gets the nomination.  The Left Wing and the mainstream media, both, will find every opportunity to paint the former Senator as Christian zealot, whether it’s fair or not.  President Obama’s defenders would much rather talk about Rick Santorum’s religious beliefs than they would the economy, and you don’t have to be a “lunatic” to believe that.

SOPA/PIPA: “Fairness Doctrine” Tyranny Coming In The Back Door

SOPA/PIPA is another case of government control over what We the People will be allowed to see or hear on the internet. The “Fairness Doctrine” was thwarted by We the People through the outrage expressed to our elected members of Congress, ironically over the internet for the most part, so they have seemingly decided to come in the back door and “protect” us from unscrupulous vendors. That is great to a point but who is going to protect us from the government? Barack Obama and many members of both political parties consider We the People too stupid to know what is in our best interests.

Instead of going after the ISP’s and search engine companies like Google, why don’t they try a novel approach, something that has never been done in modern history? Why not enforce the laws on the books against fraud? I guess that is much too difficult of a concept for politicians to grasp.

This reminds me of gun violence. How do we solve the problem of violent crimes committed with guns? Someone with my apparent lack of intelligence would suggest we imprison the criminals with very long sentences, or just execute them when the crime calls for such punishment. What is the answer the government comes up with? Well, let’s just take guns away from those not committing crimes so we don’t have to be concerned with them killing the criminals. And when government bureaucrats violate the existing gun laws we can promote them and then use those violations as an excuse to continue on our merry gun ban crusade.

These bills aren’t about protecting We the People or legitimate businesses from criminal activity. That can be done by enforcing existing law. This is about controlling what we see, what we hear, and how citizens communicate with one another. The “Arab Spring” came about as a result of dissidents communicating over the internet through social network sites, instant messaging, and texting. The powers-that-be in our government have seen what can happen when people communicate freely and share information. Open lines of communication are a danger to despots and every dictatorship in the world controls the internet access of their subjects.

I remember Obama giving a speech at a college in which he stated that “information is dangerous”. I have always been taught that information and knowledge are invaluable tools to make our lives better. It seems that Obama and most of the members of Congress weren’t taught the same lessons in their younger years. If they manage to get this legislation through they will be able to control everything that crosses our computers.

As the “Fairness Doctrine” sought to control us and make sure we were exposed to Marxist doctrine, this legislation will be used to prevent We the People from having free access to each other and to the information we need to make decisions beneficial to our lives. We will no longer be able to thwart tyrannical legislation, or regulations dictated by bureaucrats, because we will not know about them unless the government deems them safe for public consumption.

I am not surprised to find out that the biggest proponents of this legislation are the major television networks, and include Rupert Murdoch, owner of FOX News. Why would the owner of a “conservative” news network want to prohibit the free flow of information? Shouldn’t FOX News and its owner be in favor of freedom of the press? I guess the reality that they are losing millions of viewers because they don’t tell the truth, don’t tell the whole story on issues, and ignore any story that doesn’t fit their template has alarmed them to the point that it needs to be acted upon.

Internet news sites such as Conservative Daily News, The Drudge Report, The Post & E-mail, and social network sites pass information much faster, more efficiently, and more completely than any or all of the major media networks. With the advent of internet news the major media companies can no longer slant the news to suit their Marxist ideology, nor can the ignore news that is not to their liking or doesn’t fit their agenda.

The free flow of information is critical to any free society. Once a government controls what information citizens have access to tyranny is right around the corner. Iran, China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela are all dictatorships that keep their citizens enslaved and in darkness by keeping them from the knowledge of how the rest of the world operates. After the uprisings in 2009 Iran clamped down on social network media to prevent dissidents from organizing more protests and other dictatorships have long been bastions of tyranny by preventing any citizen contact with the outside world, or each other.

Obama and his minions have seen what happens to dictators who allow the free flow of information to their subjects. Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and Muammar Kadafi in Libya are prime examples of what happens when dictators allow their subjects to communicate without restrictions. I am curious to see what the future brings to these countries when the Muslim Brotherhood takes over and installs the tyranny of Sharia law on their people. Those who took to the streets for freedom may find themselves under the thumb of rulers just as brutal as those they overthrew in the “Arab Spring” uprisings.

Iran is a good example of an uprising that came about because of internet access and how the government acted to prevent it from happening again. Outside contact has been as restricted by Mahmoud Ahmadinijad and the mullahs as it can be and severe punishment awaits anyone caught communicating without government sanction. The very rulers who turned their backs on freedom seeking Iranians in 2009 now seek to impose the very same restrictions on their subjects, namely We the American People.

This legislation, as usual, is not a partisan attempt at subjugation. This legislation is supported by many members of Congress in both political parties, and who I suspect have no idea what is in the bills. Since they don’t have time to read anything they vote on it is incumbent on We the People to find out what is in the legislation and spread the word of warning through internet news and social network sites.

We must stand up once again to protect the freedoms bought with the blood of generations of patriots from the Revolutionary War to today. If we do not have the courage to stand for freedom, the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots since 1776 will have been wasted and future generations will be sentenced to a life tyranny, suffering, and poverty. To this cause I pledge “my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor”; to the cause of freedom for future generations. Every American owes their utmost opposition to this legislation in honor of those who have gone before us and for the freedom of those who will follow us.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Hey Barack: What is One’s “Fair Share”?

I have heard Barack Obama’s latest campaign tactic and it set me to thinking. Obama is going to give up the hope and change tactic and run on the premise that rich people aren’t paying their “fair share” of taxes. That brings me to some interesting questions. How much is one’s “fair share”? How much is my “fair share”? Am I paying my “fair share”, and my “fair share” of what? Who determines what a person’s “fair share” is? Who is already paying their “fair share” and who is not?

Today I heard excerpts from an interview of T. Boone Pickens on MSNBC. He said that in the last 13 years, since turning 70 years of age, he has paid over $665 million in taxes to the federal government. One of the panelists snippingly asked Pickens how much money he has made in those 13 years. I consider that information none of her business, and a non-factor in answering the questions I posed at the beginning of this article. I would think that anyone who has paid that much money in a 13 year period has paid their “fair share” of taxes. I will get back to this in a bit.

Last year (2010), my wife and I paid just over $5,000 in income taxes. When I averaged out the taxes Pickens has paid over 13 years it comes out to $51.1 million per year, on average. So, have my wife and I paid our “fair share” compared to the massive amount paid by Pickens?  What about the 47% of Americans who pay no income taxes at all? How much is their “fair share”? What about those who not only don’t pay any income tax, but instead, receive the Earned Income Tax Credit? How much is their “fair share”? What about the illegal aliens who flood our emergency rooms, hospitals, and schools, yet pay not one dime in income taxes? How much is their “fair share”?

Do those who contribute nothing to the national defense deserve their “fair share” of protection from police or military forces? Do those who pay no income taxes deserve their “fair share” of use of the highways, bridges, and other infrastructure built with my tax money? Do those who pay no income taxes deserve their “fair share” of hospitals and schools that I help pay for but use very little? As a matter of fact, my children are grown, so I don’t use the schools at all; so how much of my “fair share” should go to provide schools for those paying nothing?

T. Boone Pickens makes hundreds of millions every year I am sure, but so what? I wonder how much of the resources provided by federal, state, and local governments Pickens uses. Does he receive food stamps? Uh, let me go out on a limb and say, probably not. Does he get WIC? Once again, probably not. Does he go to the emergency room every time he sneezes for free medicine? NOOOOOO, I don’t think so!!!!!!!

Does T. Boone Pickens get more protection from the local police than those who pay no taxes at all? Doubtful. Is Pickens safer from terrorists or is he provided protection that isn’t available to any other American citizen, and most illegal aliens? I would again say that this is doubtful. So, how do we determine the “fair share” of taxes between T. Boone Pickens and my wife and I?

I can say that my wife and I also do not have any government assistance. We don’t receive food stamps, earned income tax credit, WIC, subsidized housing, or any other government hand-out, nor does Pickens, I would think. So where is the discrepancy between the “fair share” paid by Pickens, the Russell household, and those who pay nothing? How does one put a scale to the governmental benefits the Pickens and Russell households don’t receive?

Now back to the MSNBC twit asking T. Boone Pickens how much money he has made over the last 13 years. Who cares how much he has made? Why does this talking head think it is her business how much money he has made? How much money has she made? I wonder if she would think her income is any of my business. How much money has she paid towards her “fair share” of government largesse?

Here we have the crux of the issue from the Marxists in the media and the Democrat Party. Here is a man who has paid hundreds of millions in taxes, has donated hundreds of millions more, of his own money, to Oklahoma State University and countless other public and private institutions. He is being pilloried by a sanctimonious nobody who probably has not spent one dime of her own money to help anyone in need.

We call this class warfare. Class warfare, to me, is just about the lowest form of “journalism” or politics there is. Obama uses this class warfare to pit us against each other while he schemes on ways to enslave all of us and take the money of the “rich” for himself and his friends. If you think any of these people care about your well-being, you might want to open your eyes and take a look around.

How did the French Revolution work out for the “poor” when all of the wealthy aristocrats got their wealth confiscated and their heads chopped off? How many Russian peasants got rich as a result of the 1917 revolution there? How many of those who bought Hitler’s class warfare lie wound up better off as a result of the Third Reich? How many Cuban peasants benefited from the Castro overthrow of Batista? Did these actions create pillars of wealth as the result of class warfare or did they create hell holes of poverty, suffering, and death?

Let me use this class warfare in another way, since the left likes this tactic so much. The Obama family has gone to Spain, on the taxpayer dime. The Obama family has gone to Martha’s Vineyard how many times, on the taxpayer dime? The Obama family has gone to Hawaii how many times, on the taxpayer dime? And aren’t they going again for a 17 day vacation? Barack and Michele went to a Broadway play, on Air Force One, at taxpayer expense. Barack and Michele travelled to Martha’s Vineyard on separate 747’s, 3 hours apart, at taxpayer expense. And to top that off, the family dog has his own Lear jet to take him to the same vacation spot a few hours later. All of this has occurred in the last 3 years.

The Obama family dog has his own Lear jet, paid for by taxpayers, and my wife and I can’t afford to drive a few hours for a weekend vacation. By the way, my cat would love her “fair share” of Lear jet travel that the first dog gets. In the 22 years my wife and I have been married we have taken 3 vacations. Has the Obama family had their “fair share” of vacations? If I tried to lists all of Obama’s vacations and golf outings in the last 3 years, this would run on for 40 pages. I think they have had their “fair share” of vacations. Shouldn’t they take a few less vacations and have some “vacation equality” to go along with their “income equality”? Shouldn’t the royal family share some of the sacrifices they always speak of We the People making?

Let’s take a look at Obamacare, the crown jewel of the administration so far. I suggest that we have some “fair share” in Obamacare. What about the 1800 exemptions given to unions and Democrat Party supporting companies. Are these unions and companies getting their “fair share” of exemptions or are they being given preferential treatment? Where is the “fair share” of exemptions for the rest of us?

In 2010, General Electric, the parent company of NBC and huge supporter of the Democrat Party, paid no corporate taxes on $5 billion in net profits. How much should GE’s “fair share” come to? Huge amounts of tax dollars were given to Wall Street by Obama and Congress in the TARP and “stimulus” bailouts. How much should their “fair share” come to? Nancy Pelosi has seen her net worth triple since she has been in congress. Her “fair share” is how much?

When you travel down the road of class warfare you find a dead end road littered with the corpses of millions who have travelled that road before you. You won’t find the corpses of the Obamas of the world, because they are the ones killing those whose corpses you see. Class warfare ends in tragedy for nations and the people who inhabit those nations. Despots throughout history have used class warfare to divide, then conquer, and then slaughter the people. These despots then take their “fair share” of the wealth and live opulent lives.

Obama and his cohorts in Congress and the media have the same fate in mind for us, We the People. Once Despot Obama’s class warfare tactic has succeeded he will turn into a real-life nightmare like those who have preceded him; Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Pol Pot, and others who have destroyed the very people they promised to help. Obama, the Democrat Party, the media, Hollywood leftists, and many in the Republican Party will divvy up the spoils while the rest of us live in abject poverty.

If you want this kind of life then support Obama and his Axis of Evil helpers. If not, search for the one who will deliver us from a fate seen by so many people before us. Dig deep into the character and actions of those Republicans who are “not as bad as Obama” and see where they will take you. New World Order globalism isn’t trademarked by the Democrat party. Republicans have a mighty big piece of the tyranny pie ready and waiting for those who don’t do due diligence before voting.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Mrs. Class Warfare Booed at Nascar Finale

Credit: Tom Pennington/Getty Images for NASCAR

NASCAR racing may be the most patriotic sport in America. The U.S. flag being towed around Homestead raceway before the start of the Ford 400 this past weekend is but proof (image left).

NASCAR also has a longstanding tradition of including prayers before each and every race, and is the only American sport to continue to do so in recognizing the importance of our Christian beliefs that have been a mainstay in America since our founding. We are a Christian nation, and will remain so despite the current anti-American, leftist agenda to dismantle our Christianity that is becoming so prevalent in parts of our society today.

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden appeared at the final NASCAR race of the year as part of the (supposed) White House  initiative, Joining Forces. Joining Forces is all about joining together to support our nation’s military families, as the above-linked taxpayer-funded website tells us. Here is an info-byte for the Obama administration: America’s businesses and citizenry have faithfully supported our brave military families since our troops started coming back from WWI. Veterans have been given preferences in hiring long before Obama took office. This is nothing new, but to hear Obama tell it today, Americans are nothing but lazy, troop-disrespecting capitalists, especially Republicans, so vote Liberal in 2012. This whole charade of leftists expressing sudden concern for out military is nothing more than vote-pandering in it’s ugliest form. Obama and the Democrats are desperate to remain in power, and it shows.

Have we forgotten how our brave troops were constantly called murderers and war criminals by Liberals posing as Democrats upon their return from the Vietnam war? Liberal activists were doing exactly that ( calling our military war criminals) as recently as last week at the Obama-approved anti-capitalism Occupy Wall Street class warfare project being run by the DNC, Obama’s Union bed-pals and Marxist-Anarchists that was created in the very same mold as Obama’s lifelong mentor, domestic terrorist and murderer Bill Ayers and documented in his domestic terrorist/community organizing training manual, Prairie Fire.

The headlines today will speak more of the booing of Michelle Obama as opposed to actually reporting on the miraculous, dogged comeback of Tony Stewart to win the championship by winning the last Sprint Cup Chase race of the year by beating second place finisher Carl Edwards. Keep in mind that NASCAR racing receives very little coverage by the mainstream media, and is only reported upon by sports channels such as ESPN. Today, that will change.

Expect to see Chris Mathews and company over at MSNBC calling NASCAR fans racists, disrespectful and a whole slew of nasty adjectives because they booed Michelle Obama’s husband’s heavy-handed far left radical policy agenda. The leftists posing as reporters will not only play the class warfare-inducing race card, but they will also play the victim card heavily, as Michelle Obama also used children as stage props once again at this ceremony. When the NASCAR fans booed Michelle Obama, the children were conveniently front and center so the left can falsely claim the nasty NASCAR fans were booing the children.

FACT: NASCAR is a family sport, championing the family values that have been at the root of America’s greatness for over 200 years, while Liberals champion things like abortion. Liberals love those stage props that they constantly use to inject their Socialistic agenda upon America, especially when they are desperately vote-begging to remain in power. If it isn’t the “Oh the poor children” it’s the ‘Oh those poor blacks and minorities” horse manure they use to further their agenda constantly. Throw into that mix the Hispanic vote-begging scheme of Democrats making statements like “Illegals are not illegal” and it isn’t hard to see through their desperate vote-pandering to the military to remain in power in 2013. NOTE: It was in fact, Obama’s very own Illinois Democrats that denied the counting of military votes in the 2010 elections.

Again, America’s citizenry and businesses have faithfully supported our military families and veterans ever since we went to war against the British to declare out independence. We do not need a billion-dollar taxpayer funded arm of the DNC to tell us to do this, thank you very much. There are currently hundreds of programs designed to help our brave troops and military families, the majority of them run by honest private citizens and ex-military with no political agenda. The last thing we need is for citizens to start giving their hard earned money and time to the DNC arm of our government for their vote-begging scheme just because Michelle Obama wants to get her husband reelected. (by acting like they actually care about our troops) Here is a simple fact: Barack and Michelle Obama have never shown support for our military in their entire lives before his reelection campaign of 2012 came along. Zero, nada, no support, not one statement, not one plug nickel donated to the help the military programs cross America, EVER. Believing in the Obama’s sudden discovery of their long-lost love for our military (sarc) is about as ignorant as seniors believing that Liberals and Barack Obama are now their best friends after they stole $500 billion dollars of their medicare funding to fund Obama’s Socialistic healthcare reform.

Hiding from the truth: The booing of Michelle Obama was the result of we the people of the United States being ignored while her husband and their political operatives ram their socialistic agenda down our throats while also hiding from the very people they are supposed to serve to avoid hearing the truth: They do not like the direction this country is going today. Obama runs around the country in perpetual campaign fund-raising mode, while denying the people the chance to speak out against him in public. He insulates himself from the public by making sure his blind sheep followers are the only ones that get near him in public. When is the last time anyone heard our President answer direct, unprepared questions asked by the citizenry? The last time that happened was when Joe the plumber exposed Obama’s wealth redistributive agenda back 2008. The Marxist-in-Chief running for reelection is not about to let that happen again. So the public expressed their displeasure with the Obama agenda of the past three years by booing Michelle Obama at a NASCAR race. Good for them!

2012 just can’t get here fast enough !

To Kill a Mockingbird – The Lynching of Herman Cain

Fifty one years after Harper Lee penned “To Kill a Mockingbird”, we are watching the same story played out in real life. Truth may be as strange as fiction after all.

Harper Lee’s novel, set in Maycomb Alabama during the depression, tells the story of two children and the lessons they learned as their father, attorney Atticus Finch, defended an innocent black man accused of sexually assaulting a white woman.

To watch the media feeding frenzy surrounding Herman Cain of late, I cannot help but be reminded of the American classic tale written by Lee.

From the 1962 movie, perhaps we will remember Mr. Finch’s Jury summation: “To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The state has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place… It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses, whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross-examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. Now, there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewel was beaten – savagely, by someone who led exclusively with his left. And Tom Robinson now sits before you having taken the oath with the only good hand he possesses… his RIGHT. I have nothing but pity in my heart for the chief witness for the State. She is the victim of cruel poverty and ignorance. But my pity does not extend so far as to her putting a man’s life at stake, which she has done in an effort to get rid of her own guilt.”

While this doesn’t quite apply to Herman Cain, because there is not even circumstantial evidence in his case, the attitude of the left, particularly in the Media, and most particularly on MSNBC seems to be identical.

In her novel, Harper Lee says of racial prejudice, “As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it – whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash. “ (Atticus Finch)

As I listened to MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday morning, they discussed Herman Cain. After Donny Deutsch described the GOP race as a vaudeville show, and one must wonder does he REALLY want to go there, black-face make-up and all, he goes on to describe Mr. Cain’s top rating in the polls at 20% to 23% as “people just wanting the show to go on, and if Mr. Cain goes away, there is no show.” When discussing Herman Cain’s pause answering a question about his agreement or disagreement with President Obama on the handling of Libya, Mike Barnicle said that Herman Cain is a joke. Mr. Barnicle should have listened to the rest of the answer, which as Howard Dean said, was the correct one. After gathering his thoughts, Herman Cain responded that he was not privy to all of the information about the situation in Libya and who the rebels were. We still don’t know exactly who the rebels are, but we do know now, that they want to impose Sharia Law in that country. They may well be Al-Qaeda jihadists for all we really know. The “clowns” in the room (as Barnicle referred to the GOP field) really seem to be the commentators on MSNBC who, like Mr. Cunningham and the other residents gathered outside the Maycomb Alabama courthouse seem intent on a lynching. Why are they so afraid of a strong principled black man. And like Mr. Cunningham, do they need an 8 year old Scout to hold a mirror to their prejudice and shame them back to their hovels.

After calling Mr. Cain “Stupid”, fortunately without the epithet, Mika Brzezinski then smirked about Mr. Cain’s offer of the Secretary of State job to Henry Kissinger, and his refusal of it. Cain said that Kissinger declined because he did not wish to come out of retirement. Cain said he was grateful that the former Secretary spent some time with him and answered questions about the middle east. If seeking counsel on foreign policy from one of the most respected and knowledgeable statesman in modern times is stupid, one wonders what brilliant might be. One has to expect that the daughter of Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor would be a little left leaning, but one would hope she would show a little intelligence and insight.

Why all the Cain bashing from the left? As Ms. Harper’s novel points out, “Why reasonable people go stark raving mad when anything involving a Negro comes up, is something I don’t pretend to understand.”

Maybe it can’t be understood, but it seems possible that the left, with it’s long, long history of truly renown racists like George Wallace, Woodrow Wilson, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, and Stephan Douglas among others, can bury an attitude so deeply that they don’t even notice it. It seems equally possible that, by what psychologists might call projection, it is impossible for the left to fathom a GOP that is truly colorblind. Perhaps they cannot see that the bulk of the Republican party, and particularly the Tea Party took to heart Dr. King’s dream, that we do judge a man, not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. That certainly would explain why Tina Brown, Mika Brzezinski, Mike Barnicle and their ilk are having such a hard time understanding why Herman Cain remains at the top of the Iowa polls, and why they must use personal ridicule to attack him, rather than try to joust in the arena of ideas.

More stereotypes have been thrown around by the political pundits, particularly on MSNBC than have been heard in decades. What’s worse, they have completely ignored the recent heinous acts of Anti-semitic vandalism and mayhem in Crown Heights, as well as the anti-Jewish rhetoric being spewed by some of those lovely souls attending Occupations about the nation.

While they smirk, and joke and impune, perhaps they have failed to realize that our once great nation is declining rapidly into chaos. We have no leadership in the halls of Governance, our freedoms are being usurped as the regulatory agencies attempt to enslave us to the nanny state, our economy is near ruin, our youth have no work ethic, no values and no sense of responsibility. Our financial institutions behave recklessly while those in oversight line their pockets. And rather than debate policy, rather than seek men and women with real ideas about how to extricate ourselves from the weeds and point this once mighty ship of state back toward the main channel, we should laugh and poke fun about how long it takes for a man of honor to answer a question? In what kind of insane world do we find ourselves? Should we seek the white rabbit and a bite of the cake which reads eat me?

Mr. Cain is an honest man, with good ideas who cares about America and the direction in which this nation is headed. Who could blame him if he took up his hat and went home, yet here he is, offering his leadership to a leaderless Republic. Kick him if you wish, but do so at your soul’s and your nation’s peril.

D.A.M. Attacks Newt As He Surges Towards the Lead in GOP Presidential Race

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is the latest 2012 GOP Presidential candidate to come under attack from false accusations and unnamed sources in a book by the latest member of the Democratic Attack Machine (D.A.M.) to come out of the Liberal closet, Real Clear Politics. 

RCP joins a long list of current D.A.M. Operatives that includes Politico, (they of the Herman Cain bashing by vague sources and a boatload of innuendos by phony victims fame), MSNBC, (they of the constant frothing at the mouth while chastising the complete GOP Presidential field of hopefuls fame), to CNBC’s most recent lunatic screamer in chief, Jim Cramer, who was recently seen doing that apparently drug-addled act at what was supposed to be a respectful nationally televised GOP debate in South Carolina last week. Who let that delusional, rabid attack dog out of his cage and into the lineup of moderators  during a GOP Presidential debate? 

 In a new E-book, , Election 2012: The Battle Begins,” penned by Real Clear Politics‘ Tom Bevan and Carl Cannon, there are allegations that Gingrich bathed his wife in jewelry to get her to stop opposing his remaining in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, London’s Daily Mail reports.

Another member of the D.A.M, the Huffington Post, which is funded mainly by DNC operatives, George Soros, and Barack Obama’s fake non-profits posing as innocent get out the vote minions, came right out and declared that Newt Gingrich moved swiftly to deny the false claims made in this “E-Book.” [Note: Currently, most E-Books are generally known to be non-fictional pieces of trash that real publishers are not willing to risk publishing due to the possibility of liability from lawsuits, too many unnamed sources, lacking in real informational value, or the book being judged as not being of any form of quality writing that would justify any investment in it.] Also of note is the fact that the RCP operatives claim that there will be two more “segments” of this book sometime down the road. It isn’t too hard to see that with Newt at the top of the polls today, they had to jump out and attack him immediately with the first “segment” of this supposed book. Are they saving the next 2 segments for anyone else who looks like a threat to Obama in 2012?

Yes, as expected, Newt moved swiftly to deny the allegations in saying that his wife, Callista has always supported his run for the presidency. Some folks speculate that the attacks could be coming from Perry aides ( where have we seen this trick before) that previously worked for the Gingrich campaign. Once again, just as most of the Herman Cain allegations, this book does not identify any sources for the claims.

The ranks of supposed journalists today using unnamed and unverifiable sources have skyrocketed almost as fast as Barack Obama’s electricity prices are slated to do in 2012 as we see here, in which we see the EPA’s new “rules”  are proven to be applying cap and trade laws on certain states illegally. The Extreme Political Activists in the EPA are also a huge partner in the current D.A.M. that will assuredly become more visible, as we get closer to the 2012 elections.

Meanwhile Newt “the turtle” Gingrich keeps on plugging along with expert debate performances and very detailed  21st Century Contract With America . We need well-defined solutions in America in 2013,  and the more we hear from Newt Gingrich as a 2012 GOP Presidential candidate as he exposes the dangers posed by the current Liberal administration, the better informed the voters will be in 2012. While this is the polar opposite of  Barack Obama’s undefined Hope and Change fraud of a campaign in 2008, it certainly must be considered by all conservatives to be  a very viable road towards truly “Winning the Future in America.”

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NBC News, a Wholly Owned Subsidiary of the Obama Administration?

A far cry from Huntley-Brinkley, John Chancellor, or even Tom Brokaw, the NBC News organization has become little more than a mouthpiece for the Obama Administration. Leaving aside the obviously biased MSNBC commentators Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Al Sharpton, even the once proud Nightly News has shown an increasingly apparent bent toward the left wing of the Democratic party since Brian Williams took over the anchor desk in 2004.

Since the Solyndra story was broken in September, NBC has devoted a total of 8 minutes to the story, even after the company’s leaders pleaded the fifth amendment in front of congress and subpoena’s were issued to members of the Administration. NBC has also been mute on the Fast and Furious story, in which the Justice Department encouraged thousands of high powered weapons to find their way across the border into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens and at least one US border patrol agent. On October 17, 2011, NBC’s Inside the Boiler Room program spent less than four minutes discounting both the Solyndra and Fast & Furious scandals, prior to that, the last time NBC mentioned Fast & Furious was July 1st, 2011.

Why the overwhelming prejudice in favor of the Administration? NBC is owned by Comcast Corporation and General Electric. In January of this year the Government cleared the way for Comcast to buy a 51% stake of NBC, making Comcast the controlling interest and one of the largest media outlets in the country. GE, who previously owned the lion’s share of the company is headed by Jeff Immelt, Chairman of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Almost before the ink was dry on the merger deal, Comcast hired Meredith Attwell Baker away from her job as one of the four Federal Communications Commissioners who voted in favor of the merger. Her new job is to lobby Washington for NBC in possible violation of Federal Law.

Second on the list of top contributor’s to President Obama’s 2012 campaign this year is Comcast Corporation, and they bundled a great deal of money for him in 2008. GE was 17th on the list of Obama contributors for that election cycle.

In addition to receiving campaign contributions from the owners of the News outlet, President Obama sent $36 million dollars in cash back to GE, in the form of Early Retirement Health Care subsidies.

Just last week, the Obama campaign hired Broderick Johnson of the lobbying firm Bryan Cave LLP. This firm received $440,000 from Comcast to lobby in favor of the Comcast/NBC Universal merger. Mr. Johnson was shown throughout the merger period on House disclosure forms listing his role as an advocate for the merger.

As the scandals surrounding the White House, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Energy heat up, perhaps the lack of coverage of them by a supposedly impartial news organization will itself be added to the growing list of questionable relationships between the Administration and its cronies. But don’t expect to hear about it on NBC’s Nightly News.

For the Left, Cain is Black Man Who Doesn't Know His Place

Last week on Bashir Live on MSNBC, Martin graced the airwaves with his special guest, DNC strategist (put on some makeup, earrings and get a TV gig and suddenly you’re a STRATEGIST!) Karen Finney.  Ms. Finney was there to talk about Herman Cain.  Of course! Its not like there are any other interesting and pressing issues to address, such as national debt, the Solyndra debacle or a disastrous, murderous gun running scheme perpetrated by the current administration.  Nope.  The real news is Herman Cain.  He’s Black, you see.  And a Tea Party-er.  And he’s running for President.  As a Republican.  This is NEWS, folks!  MSNBC says so because it is nearly all they ever “report” on these days.  Anyway, Finney had some pretty choice words regarding the Hermanator.  You can view the video here, but her quote is short and to the point.  On Cain, Finney says “One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy.  I think he is giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.”

No Ms. Finney, that’s not harsh. Its racist.  Also, I think you got a little tripped up over your words.  I do believe what you meant to say is “Herman Cain is Black man who doesn’t know his place”.  You have a place for Cain, don’t you Finney?  He belongs right there on that liberal plantation with all the other good, obedient little Negros.  He should be happy with the meager offerings of welfare dependence and broken families that the Democrat party has been serving up for decades.  He should be heard from only when the left needs to insert an angry Black person into some issue or debate and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are both busy siring children outside of their marriage or evading taxes.  Cain should be happy sitting on that porch, waiting for the next election cycle when the Democrat candidate can trot him out for a while and talk about how much the Black community needs them and why they are the only ones who care about the plight of poor Black Americans everywhere.  That’s Cain’s place in your world, isn’t it Ms. Finney?

I think people like Finney are the worst kind of racists.  They cloak their racism in garments of “activism” and “justice”.  They believe that Black people are simply incapable of thinking as separate, individual, diverse human beings.  They look at Black Americans as a herd of animals, like sheep or lemmings.  They look alike, dress alike, act alike, listen to the same music, watch the same movies and when it comes to politics think the same way.  I have no idea what race or nationality Finney claims, but it doesn’t matter.  What she said about Cain, and by extension Black Americans everywhere was reprehensible.  If this were a Republican personality making the same comments about Obama the news cycle would completely explode.  I reject the idea that her party affiliation should offer her some immunity.  Finney should be shamed and ashamed for her comments.  She should never have any credibility in the media again after such a disgusting statement.  She couldn’t have been more offensive if she had just flat out called Cain a step-n-fetch-it nigger.  The way I see it, Finney is the step-n-fetch-it, saying whatever she thinks Bashir wants to hear in order to be invited back to the show and to all the fancy liberal Winter Holiday Celebration parties coming up in the next few months.  She is selling hate, and I’m calling her on it.

Ms. Finney, did it ever occur to you that Cain actually believes what he says?  Did it occur to you that perhaps there are people out there who don’t see the color of his skin when he speaks, but judge him on the quality of his words and the content of his character?  The racism in this case is not coming from those of us on the right.  Cain has a message that resonates.  If you disagree with the message, attack the man on that.  But you can’t, because you’re a racist.  You’re a racist because when you look at Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice or other Black conservatives you see the color of their skin first and foremost, and you judge them according to that pigmentation.  If that is not racism, I don’t know what is.  I’m sure Bashir and the other couple hundred MSNBC viewers were quite tickled by your song and dance the other night, but I wasn’t.  I was shocked, saddened, and disgusted.  So were many other Black conservatives, conservatives of all races for that matter.  When you’re finished your overseeing duties for the day at the liberal plantation, maybe you should go crawl into the same hole Lawrence O’Donnell makes his home in.  Or maybe I’m just being harsh.

MSNBC, MSM Ignoring Solyndra Scandal


Not that I ever personally watch MSNBC, but that network has totally ignored for the past six weeks the filing for bankruptcy of Solyndra and the ensuing scandal. As of October 14, 2011, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, and Al Sharpton have said absolutely nothing about the Solyndra scandal on their prime time “news” shows. Only Rachel Maddow mentioned the scandal, filing just one report.

MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan decries “crony capitalism,” but not in the case of Solyndra. Ratigan has been very silent on the Solyndra congressional investigation.

Speaking of crony capitalism, the MSM couldn’t get enough of any scandals within Halliburton and always made sure to connect them to Dick Cheney. Yet they don’t seem to care much about the Solyndra scandal. Halliburton was and Solyndra is a case of crony capitalism. I wish I understood why the MSM thinks they should only report on GOP crony capitalism and not equally on Democrat crony capitalism. The MSM loves to remind people of Dick Cheney’s connections to Halliburton, yet refuse to mention President Obama’s political connections to Solyndra.

The MSM is not much better. A review of the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows by the Media Research Center found just fifteen stories mentioning the Solyndra scandall since its August 31, 2011, bankruptcy filing. Total network coverage over nearly six weeks: just 25 minutes, 30 seconds, less than 0.2% of the available news airtime. A study by the Media Research Center finds that the three broadcast networks are providing virtually no coverage of the Solyndra scandal. This is not the approach the networks took after the collapse of Enron, an energy company with Republican ties. In just the first two months of 2002, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts broadcast 198 stories about Enron, compared to just eight so far on Solyndra, a 24-to-1 disparity. When two Solyndra executives took the Fifth Amendment before a congressional committee in late September, ABC and NBC spiked that news, while CBS offered 25 seconds of coverage.

As an aside, Republicans have pointed to one e-mail from Mary Miller, an assistant Treasury secretary, who wrote in an August 17, 2011, e-mail that Treasury’s “legal counsel believes that the statute and the DoE regulations both require that the guaranteed loan should not be subordinate to any loan or other debt obligation.”   [emphasis mine]  That is exactly what happened with the Solyndra loan.

BTW, on a personal note, the only television I watch is NASCAR racing, and I pull for Tony Stewart (14), Kurt Busch (22), Kevin Harvick (29), and Carl Edwards (99) to win “the chase.” Why, you ask? Well, back in August, 2011, they chose to boycott a meeting with Barack Obama. So I am a conservative NASCAR fan. Does that make me a redneck?

But that’s just my opinion.

Marxism on Full Display in DC on Saturday

The {fake}Reverend Al Sharpton led  a rally in our nation’s capitol today, which originally was supposed to be a demand for Congress to pass Obama’s Jobs bill. The U.S. Senate put the kibosh on those plans, as it voted down Obama’s jobs bill last week. That did not prevent the latest faux  journolist to be put on national display at MSNBC  from grabbing the microphone and prepping D.C.  for Obama’s dedication speech for the new MLK Jr. memorial tomorrow. And prep them he did. While  Sharpton did throw in some support for Obama’s now dead jobs bill,  that was nowhere near the main theme of this rally. The message that Sharpton wanted to tell the nation was unadulterated  Marxist ideology 101 =  WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION.     From Eric Tucker of the AP via startribune.com: Al  Sharpton enlisted Martin Luther King III for the main theme:

King’s eldest son, Martin Luther King III, was also among the speakers.

Over 45 years ago, my father talked about a redistribution of wealth. In fact, that is probably why he was killed,” King said. “Because he said if America is going to survive responsibly, then it must have a redistribution of wealth.” (emphasis mine)

I,ll let that statement, which was spoken in our nation’s capitol, right in front of the Washington Monument no less,  speak for itself. For the uninformed masses who still deny Barack Obama’s deep-seated Marxist ideology, even after he said almost those exact same words in 2008 to Joe the Plumber in Ohio, here is the definition of Marxism by education.yahoo.com:

The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society’s allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.

Get that? To form a Socialist and ultimately classless society. Play the class warfare victim cards, collapse the free market system and install a utopian Socialistic Society.. where there is one main class of people… what they refuse to tell people is that Socialism results in widespread poverty that in turn breeds a Dictatorship class of rulers that ends up making decisions such as who gets to eat and who doesn’t.  For a more complete understanding about the wealth re-distributive principles inherent in Marxism, please read this article:  The Communist Manifesto – The Capitalist Manifesto – Socialism by Bill Glynn.

Al Sharpton’s rally (from the above link, at  startribune.com) also had other points of interest, such as  condemning state laws requiring voter identification at the polls and protesting the recent execution of Troy Davis, a Georgia man convicted of killing an off-duty police officer. Davis maintained his innocence until his death and attracted thousands of supporters worldwide even though courts repeatedly ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to exonerate him.  Marxism relies on the breaking down of a societal system, including corrupting the electoral system which is why these people decry Voter ID laws today.

In case you are wondering who else was at this Marxist protest rally in our nation’s capitol on Saturday, here are the other notable people including many of our very own government’s tax-payer funded employees:

Kathie Williams, a part-time administrator for the Howard County, Md., parks and recreation department. She’d like to find full-time work but has struggled to do so despite an active search.

Belinda Shade, 56, of Waldorf, Md., works as a special education school administrator but said the economy still makes her insecure.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray held a separate protest supporting greater autonomy for the district government — Congress must approve the local government’s budget — and joined in the larger gathering. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Randi Weingarten of the American Federation of Teachers were among the other speakers.

Wait a minute, someone from the American Federation of Teachers was there too? Isn’t that just another fancy name for a UNION? Yes it is.

Chanting for jobs and justice, many demonstrators carried banners for their labor unions and wore pins or T-shirts bearing King’s likeness. Obama is scheduled to speak Sunday at the dedication ceremony for the memorial, the first monument dedicated to a black leader on the National Mall. (emphasis mine)

In summary, the [fake] Reverend Al Sharpton made it a point to say this has absolutely nothing to do with Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. In Sharpton’s eloquent [bought and paid for by MSNBC]-speak he ended his speech with,  “This is not about Obama,” he said. “This is about my mama.”  Kinda makes me feel like Sharpton is just as gifted a speaker as the teleprompter-in-chief there.

How many times will America have to witness these anti-American Marxism preachers at events like this one at the National Monument, where big labor Unions, Socialists disguised as Democrats, Communists and MSNBC’s newest propagandist Al Sharpton are all shown to be promoting the overthrow and collapse of America, before they will take a stand against them?

Footnote: What is the now-stated main theme of the Occupy Wall Street protests today? Marxist wealth redistribution in the form of living wages regardless of employment, complete debt forgiveness, free houses for everyone regardless of ability to pay, good jobs regardless of qualifications, etc.etc.etc. Take from the working class and give to the freeloader-class until everyone is mired in poverty.

 From Sharpton’s DC rally, to the Wall Street protests across the nation, with the support of many Socialists sitting in our Congress disguised as Democrats,  America is being systematically dismantled by anti-American Marxist collaborators, including our own President, Barack Obama.   2012  just can’t get here fast enough.

 

 


Michael Eric Dyson is a "Post-Intentional" Boob

Michael Eric Dyson – professional whiner and racist – pulls out his 10 dollar words to point out how Herman Cain is a sell out and “delusional”.  Dyson takes issue with Cain’s claim that racism is not the most common thing holding back Black Americans these days.  He wants Cain to recognize that Blacks are still discriminated against and have not been allowed to achieve success, or even the access to the opportunities that result in success.  Also, Dyson is a New York Times best selling author and college professor.  I guess those things don’t pay well when you’re Black.  He probably found that fancy suit of his at the local thrift store. Racism!  Dyson also introduces us to another fancy new term, coined by a fellow professor-y friend: post-intentional racism.  Racism never ends!  Even when you think you aren’t racist you really are.  Post-intentionally so!  You should be ashamed.  Personally I think Mr. Using-My-Middle-Name-Makes-Me-Sound-Smart has an issue with Herman Cain’s race, and its NOT post-intentional.  Its just racist.

 

Lawrence O'Donnell is a Tool

Dear Lawrence O’Donnell:
You are a tool. I mean that in most modern sense. You are not an instrument of aid, like the type we use to build things and create things. You are just a tool; obtuse and incapable of independent operation. Your interview with Herman Cain last Thursday was a prime example of your tool-ish-ness. I see you decided to hop into your time machine and travel all the way back to 1992, when Americans actually considered military service a deal breaker and race baiting was a surefire way to fluster a candidate, because the media remained steadfast in its refusal to break the Democrat Party lines or retract their many distortions and lies. Back in 1992 there was no conservative media, no Andrew Breitbart, no talk radio domination and no conservative internet industry. There was only Rush Limbaugh to fight the media. In 1992, you could effectively discredit a candidate simply by inferring he was a draft dodger. There would no information push to combat what was then considered a negative characterization. I realize you’re getting old, so I’ll try to be gentle in reminding you that this is 2011. While Vietnam played a major role in the lives of people your age and older, it is not much more than a historical event for voters like me. Oh yes, we recognize the importance of that war, and we respect and honor those who served there. But it doesn’t hold the emotional pull that it used to. Those of us in our 30’s and 40’s had our lives shaped by 9/11 and the ensuing war on terror. Mentioning Vietnam service in any interview does nothing to characterize you as a hard-hitting journalist, it only makes you look old and out of touch. Herman Cain worked for the navy at the time…as a ROCKET scientist. You didn’t seem to be embarrassed at all about missing that fact. In fact, you doubled down on your Mr.Mc-Tool act by using John Kerry’s “service” to compare to Herman Cain. John Kerry, who “served” in Vietnam and lost a presidential campaign. John “Swiftboat” Kerry. Smooth, O’Donnell. Vietnam was important in our nation’s history, and affected the lives of many Americans; but when you are a 37-year-old mother struggling to make ends meet, unable to secure credit and forced to raid her kids’ college funds to stay afloat, a candidate’s service history during a war fought nearly 40 years ago is not on the radar. Snap to, O’Donnell! Its 2011; we have cell phones and everything.

You did not have the decency or intellectual fortitude to stop Oldies but Goodies hit parade there. Straight from top of the charts, 1992-style – race! Before there was Andrew Breitbart and internet domination by conservative pundits, tools like you could get away with pseudo-journalism disguised as race baiting. You- rich, White guy- have the nerve to try to paint Herman Cain as a racist (you know he’s Black, right?) because he chose to be in school instead of giving up his soap bar and toothbrush to sit in college offices and public parks as a “protester” during the civil rights movement. Excuse me, Tool Hand Luke, but for Black people, education is one of the most important and coveted privileges we have. Black families all over America sacrifice every day to make sure their children can attend college. For many who live in the inner city, college is that last hope of escaping the ghetto life. Many Black people feel an almost desperate need to see their children through higher education, as a direct result of what our community has suffered in the history of this country. That’s what Herman Cain was doing during the civil rights movement. He was doing what every other Black parent in America at that time and even today asked their child to do – get an education and break out of the lower class lifestyle Blacks had traditionally been relegated to. Your arrogance in suggesting Cain was somehow “selling out” for choosing education over public protests is astounding. As if that is the measure of a human being! I guess rich, privileged White guys like you don’t understand what its like to scrape and work for every advancement in your life. Here’s a suggestion for you to add to your Toolbag: until you’re willing to give up every comfort in your life to go protest on behalf of disadvantaged minorities across the country, shut up about others doing the same.

Cain seems like a good-natured fellow, and was able to laugh off your tired and ridiculous line of questioning. Do you remember laughing, Lawrence? Its something that happens around your mouth area when you are enjoying a conversation or activity. I realize you thought this interview was going to make you look like a hard-hitting, no nonsense reporter, but it actually just made you look like Janeane Garofalo – not a compliment by the way. You both wear that same smug, superior, self-satisfied look on your faces when discussing the intelligence of Black Americans. Do you use the same plastic surgeon, I wonder?

MSNBC seems determined to solidify its place in the gutter of cable news programming. You seem just as satisfied to lay in the sewage with them. That’s a common trait among tools – they love the smell of their own feces. You, sir, are a slime and it infuriates me to think that people like you make millions of dollars while hard-working, honest families like my own struggle to provide a decent life. Do me a favor, won’t you? While you’re visiting the ’90s stay away from that Lewinsky girl; we don’t need you messing with the time-space continuum. And when your time machine finally does Read more

Lawrence O'Donnell: What A Dirtbag

If you haven’t heard about the interview Herman Cain did with Lawrence O’Donnell on Thursday night by now, I’m sure you will pretty soon.  It was one of the worst things I’ve seen on cable news in recent memory.  It might even be the worst thing I’ve seen on cable news, period.  It’s hard to rank these things, but I’m pretty sure this is "top 10" material.

The interview, in question, was pretty lengthy, as MSNBC has it broken up into three parts.  You can see them here, here, and here.

Now, I know many of you don’t expect outstanding journalism from MSNBC, and for the most part, I don’t either, but… This was pretty bad.  In part one of the interview, Lawrence O’Donnell chastises Herman Cain for not being more involved with the Civil Rights movement.  He actually gives Cain a hard time, because Cain said he sat in the back of the bus, so he wouldn’t get in trouble.  Keep in mind that Herman Cain is a man who got his Masters Degree and has been very successful in many industries; Cain is not wired to be a "trouble maker".  That wasn’t good enough for O’Donnell.  The MSNBC anchor pushed him and implied that progress in the Civil Rights movement would have never been made, if all of the black people just sat in the back of the bus.  It was a very awkward and terrible segment.  It’s actually what I was going to write about at first…..  But then I saw part two of the interview, and what I saw upset me so much that I stopped watching and began writing the words you’re looking at right now.

The subject was Herman Cain’s service to this country during the Viet Nam War.  The short story is this:  Herman Cain went to college (got a masters degree, even) and worked for the Department of the Navy doing analysis that helped with ballistic weapons.  Lawrence O’Donnell then went on to accuse Herman Cain of being a draft dodger, because he didn’t VOLUNTEER to go.  (Cain was actually available for the draft, but his number was never called)  Here’s some of their conversation below:

Lawrence: Can you explain how you avoided military service during the Viet Nam War and during the draft and why you should be Commander in Chief if you did successfully avoid military service during the war that came during what would have been your war years?  After avoiding the Viet Nam war, why should you be Commander in Chief?

Cain:  Now, your choice of words… "How did I avoid the Viet Nam War?"  I wasn’t trying to avoid the Viet Nam War.  Here’s what happened, Lawrence…  I was working in a critical area called "exterior ballistics".  I worked on something called the "rocket assisted projectile" for the department of the Navy.

Cain then went on to say:

Cain:  …When they had the (draft) lottery, I made myself available.  The year that they had the lottery for the draft, they did not draft me, because they did not get to my number.  So I think that’s a poor choice of words on your part to say that "I avoided the Viet Nam War".

Lawrence:  I am offended on behalf of all of the veterans of the VIet Nam War who joined, Mr. Cain.  The veterans who did not wait to be drafted, like John Kerry, who joined.  They didn’t sit there and wait to find out what their draft board was gonna do.  They had the courage to join and to go and fight that war.  What prevented you from joining, and what gives you the feeling that after having made that choice, you should be the Commander in Chief?

Alright… Let me get my snarky thought out of the way first.  Mr. O’donnell, what made Barack Obama think he should be the Commander in Chief?  Was it all of the flyers he stapled to telephone poles on the south side of Chicago?  Was it his church that said we "deserved 9/11 to happen to us"?  Was it his wife who had never been proud of America?  What, Mr. O’Donnell, made our current president think he "should be Commander in Chief"?

Secondly, I rarely pull the military card, but I have served this nation honorably, and I can tell you things that might not be common knowledge.  Herman Cain might not have gone off to the Viet Nam War to go live what has been described by many to be hell, but he did do work that helped make life less of a hell for the service members who did go.  He stayed in the United States and helped the military develop artillery.  When I was in the service, I cannot tell you how thankful I was to civil servants and contractors who made our weapons for us. 

See, I don’t know if many people realize it or not, but our warriors don’t work in the factories that make the many weapon systems that we use, and they don’t design them either.  They may have input on what ends up being developed, but it is civilians who bust their humps here in the United States that actually provide us with the tools that we need.  Herman Cain was providing those tools.  It is asinine to say that Herman Cain did not serve during the Viet Nam War.  He was helping develop weapons systems while he was in the draft pool.  The man didn’t "dodge" anything, and he did more to serve this country than President Obama ever chose to do.

That segment of the interview was infuriating for me to watch.  It was honestly one of the most disrespectful and least truthful things I have seen a supposed journalist do.  Herman Cain helped work on the weapons that service members were using to fight the war.  You don’t have to stand on the front line to play a part in winning the war, and again, Cain has done more to serve this country than President Obama ever thought to do.  He’s created more jobs too, but that’s beside the point.

Before I go, I thought you might like to see an example of what "rocket assisted projectiles" does.  Maybe this will give you an idea of why I said service members would find what Cain did to be helpful.  Click here, and enjoy.
