Left Wingers to Finance Wisconsin 14 – CDN Fights Back

One of my readers forwarded an email to me asking if there was something Conservatives could do to counter a destructive move by the liberals.

Mr. Editor,

My Daughter is signed up on some left wing-extremist web site and sent this to me asking for money. She thinks that because I was in a union that I would support this mess. I was in a union because I had no choice. If I wanted that job, I had to pay union dues. Scott Walker is giving workers the individual right to elect to not have union dues come out of their paychecks and go to causes they don’t support. I wish there had been a Governor Walker in my working years.

Here’s the email, is there a way to counter this?

Over the weekend, I sent an email asking you to support the 14 Wisconsin Democratic Senators who left the state to prevent Republicans from passing a bill that strips workers of their collective bargaining rights. Now, I’m emailing to ask you again.

Please, donate $14 to the Wisconsin State Senate Democratic Committee, $1 for each of the heroic Senators.

There are 19 Republicans in the state Senate, but 20 Senators are needed for a quorum to pass the bill. If even one Democratic Senator returns to Wisconsin, s/he will be rounded up by the state police, brought to the state Capitol, and the bill will pass. If that happens, tens of thousands of workers will lose their rights.

Senate Republicans are pressuring the 14 Democrats by passing bills that require the presence of only 17 Senators. Further, groups funded by Wall Street are running television ads attacking the Dems.

The strain on these Democrats is immense. We must serve as a counterweight by providing tangible support. That’s why at Daily Kos we’ve added the Wisconsin State Senate Democratic Committee to the Orange to Blue 2012 page. The sole purpose of this committee is to support the Democratic nominee in each of Wisconsin’s 33 state Senate districts.

Please, donate $14 to the Wisconsin Senate Democrats, $1 for each of the heroic Democratic Senators. Your contribution will make an immediate, substantive impact on a huge political fight.

In solidarity,
Chris Bowers
Campaign Director, Daily Kos

YES! There is something we can do about it. It’s time to .. Give ’em Hell!! I haven’t received a response to phone calls and email to understand where exactly we should send the money, so I have included the emails and office addresses of every one of the grandest 19!

We can send $5 dollars to each of the Republican Senators. Spend $20 dollars of your own money and pick four Senators to send it to. Post a comment as to whom you supported so we support them all. As the founder and editor-in-chief of ConservativeDailyNews.com, I will personally contribute $40. First comment will show who I am sending money to. Will you join me?

Progressives Take-Up "Town-Halling" Against Obamacare

During the times of tall sailing ships and pirates, a punishment was used that basically drug the offender under the length of the ship.  This practice was known as keel-hauling and I believe that Democrats may prefer this to what they are experiencing today – town-halling.

During the push to pass health care reform in 2009, Democrats held town halls.  Those against the health care reform were angry and outspoken.  These town-hallings became so prevalent that Democrats cancelled their town halls and settled only for tightly-controlled situations.  Roll forward to now…

Today, Nancy Pelosi was speaking at one of those tightly-controlled speeches in an attempt to sell the health care reform message.  First, selling the reform to people who supposedly support it seems odd.  Then again, the crowd, attendees of a progressive conference, started yelling, “”Our homes, not nursing homes!” just as Pelosi started to speak.  What happened?  Nancy got town-halled .. by progressives.

Will their now be another heart-felt speech about Harvey Milk and how scared she is?  Will their be concern over the rhetoric from the likes of Chris Mathews or Obama and how they might be leading progressives to violence? Will there be a call for calm from the radicals of the left?  Of course not.

Now apparently, Nancy didn’t get the memo.  Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) cancelled his health care reform-selling town hall back in March due to concern for his security.  Others were refraining from scheduling them at all and blamed it on Republicans for creating a feeding frenzy among tea party protesters.  Has the GOP now started activating it’s secret network of MoveOn.org agents?

No, this is what happens as Americans finally see what’s in the bill after it’s passed – and they’re angry.  Citizens from all over the political spectrum are now realizing that they had been lied to.  Not just mislead, but outright lied to.

Politico.com reported that the law will negatively impact more than a million low-income workers as soon as September.

Under the provision, insurance companies will no longer be able to apply broad annual caps on the amount of money they pay out on health policies. Employer groups say the ban could essentially wipe out a niche insurance market that many part-time workers and retail and restaurant employees have come to rely on.

I worked as a bus boy, waiter, bartender, shelf-stocker and there is no way I could have afforded the full-fledged plans that the government is now requiring.  Isn’t this the group Obama promised the reform would help?  Now their employers will only be allowed to offer too-expensive government-approved plans.  When they cannot afford it.. well, short term.. it’s just tough luck.  In 2014 (only 3.5 short years away), they’ll be able to get government assistance to help them pay for a plan off of the state-run exchanges that they will still probably not be able to afford.   Obamacare will relieve these working Americans of the health plans – you know, the ones they could keep if they liked them?

The leader of the progressive left, President Obama, even attempted a town hall today.  To keep his audience calm he could have just given the commencement speech he used to lull a student to sleep, but he chose to just pay them off – $250.00.  Obama centered the rally around the $250.00 Medicare rebates that many seniors will be receiving soon.  Obama used fear tactics, calling the GOP’s repeal movement and attempt to, “roll back” rebates and benefits.  The imagery is amazing – Obama gives you a check for $250.00 and tells you that the GOP will take it back from you if you let them.  Which side is using harmful rhetoric?

The President didn’t stop with the promise of extra cash from the public treasury.  He went on to re-promise what we already know is not true.

“What you need to know is that the guaranteed Medicare benefits that you’ve earned will not change,” he said. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

As I posted, some Doctors are already ceasing to accept new Medicare patients and others are dropping Medicare patients they currently serve – due to the new legislation.  Is Obama assuming that anyone that loses their doctor due to these changes must not have liked them anyway?

Of course the speech-giver-in-chief continued to talk about the doc-fix that is intended to fix the concerns of those Medicare patients, temporarily, but he failed to mention that it comes at a cost that will make his plan actually increase the deficit – one broken promise at a time please.

Town-hallings will only be less-prevalent if Democrats stay out of the public light.  Now that Americans are seeing what so many tried to warn them about before the health care reform was passed, they are mad.. and they aren’t going to take it anymore.

Anti G-20 Mobs Set Sights on Pittsburgh

Anarchists, environmental groups, and other left-wing radical groups led the way for anti-capitalism protests in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Reasons for the march were varied.  Several groups were there to enforce messages of lowering CO2 emissions.  Others were protesting the situation in Burma, the fact that 20 people control the global economy, social justice, pushes for anarchy, ending hunger, stopping war, you name it.

While  nowhere near as numerous as the conservative march on Washington D.C. earlier this month, it did turn violent at times.  Police and protesters traded rocks, tear gas and bean bag shot as the marchers attempted to ignore police orders to discontinue the illegal march.

The news media went out of its way to ignore the more violent sections of the march and the New York Times went so far as to claim that the entire protest was peaceful with no mention of the rock-throwing, dumpster tossing thugs.  UPI at least bothered to mention that some tear gas and rocks were traded.

Fox news interviewed a few protesters that said the protests were largely peaceful.  When asked if they would condemn the destruction of property and attacks on police, they agreed that it was happening, but they would not call the actions wrong.  The question was evaded in typical elite-speak and by turning the question around on the interviewer.   They can’t condemn the illegal actions of their fellow protesters, because they agree with it and hope it continues.

When the 9-12 marchers went to D.C. predictions of violence, perhaps near militant in-nature, were going to break out.  Nothing even close occurred.  Exactly zero people were arrested after having done zero dollars of damage to public or private property.  The conservative marchers were there out of love for their country, its constitution, and everything it represents.  When the left marches, it’s to demonstrate hatred and anger for the country that gives them the right to voice that opinion.  Who do we really need to fear?

Liberals Mount Attack on Dissenters

Pelosi wagging finger

Nancy Pelosi

In an Alisnky-style attack, liberals are attempting to ridicule, shame, and belittle critics of Obama administration policies instead of debating the actual issues.

Nancy Pelosi, a liberal leader and Speaker of the House of Representatives, today issued a dire warning while speaking to reporters.  One member of the press asked what she thought of the recent anti-Obamacare discussion.  Pelosi’s response was that she has “concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco”.   The Speaker then when on to say that she found the rhetoric from those that disagreed with her to be, “very frightening”.

Liberals have often said that those that disagree with them don’t discuss the issues and resort to name-calling and fear-mongering.  In a turn-of-fate, the left has decided to use the tactic they often criticized others for employing.

Yesterday, another liberal congressional Representative, Maxine Waters(D-CA) stated that she wanted to see health care reform critics investigated.  She used terms like “Tea Bagger” and “Birther” to lump all of Obama’s critics together using belittling terms.

It’s no longer an isolated tactic.  Liberals from all corners of the left are signing on to the practice of labeling, generalizing, and name-calling anyone that disagrees with them. Recently, Jimmy Carter, in a television interview, commented that he believes that most of the anti-Obama sentiment is purely race-based.

In reviewing comments on multiple liberal blogs, it’s apparent that there is a growing movement within the left to label all dissent as racist and dangerous.  These claims appear to be galvanizing those that disagree with left-leaning politics and consequently increasing membership and activism in the anti-big government movement.  It is possible that by grouping different anti-liberal groups together, the left have created a daunting common enemy where there was once a bunch of much smaller ones.
