Jonah Goldberg tries to be Jack London, not the good writer part but the racist stuff

No, Jonah Goldberg is not as good a writer as London. Although they both did pen a fantasy novel on authoritarianism. Jack London's Dystopian Novel, The Iron Heel describes events which never happened and presages the craze of alternate history novels while Goldberg's book, Liberal Fascism, has less realism, even more fantasy elements and might be written proof of a hallucination or psychotic break.

Jonah Goldberg is however famous for being in good standing amongst the slimy pig shit sucking Chicken Hawk cowards who were more than willing to Champion War whilst their fat asses hid in the US.
"Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business." ~ Jonah Goldberg relayed his view of the 'Michael Ledeen Doctrine' on April 23, 2002.
Spoken like a coward who knew he would never be in harm's way at the whimsy of fat flabby mush butt asshole like himself.

Jonah Goldberg, didn't even feel any contrition at being such a coward,
As for why my sorry a** isn't in the kill zone, lots of people think this is a searingly pertinent question. No answer I could give -- I'm 35 years old, my family couldn't afford the lost income, I have a baby daughter, my a** is, er, sorry, are a few -- ever seem to suffice.
But instead used it as an opportunity to go hippie-punching,
But this chicken-hawk nonsense is something that's been batted around too many times to get into again here. What I do think is interesting is that out of the thousands upon thousands of emails I've gotten from people in the military over the years, maybe a dozen have ever asked this question. Invariably, it's anti-war leftists who believe that their personally defined notions of hypocrisy trump any argument and any position.
But, Jonah wasn't content to merely cheer on war from the comfort of his keyboard. On 12/12/2007, Goldberg infamously was the featured speaker for a lecture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, entitled All I am Saying is Give War a Chance. It's stated goal being:
Join the UMass Republican Club for yet another lively and edifying political discussion on the costs, necessities, consequences, and benefits of war. A question and answer session will be administered after the initial lecture.
Well, all his Warmongering changed once President Obama got into power. Because to Jonah, War is merely a vehicle to advance his bigoted conservative worldview. So, after President Obama oversaw the successful operation which resulted in the Death of Osama Bin Laden, what's a warmongering chicken hawk asshole like Jonah Goldberg to do? Why proclaim that Bush's Iraq Folly was by far a bolder move!

But, Jonah isn't one to let the Death of Bin Laden get in the way of his bullshit. Jonah manages to get his dig in on President Obama with this backhanded compliment,
But I was also reluctant because, yes, the president deserves praise for doing it and there are so few things I find praiseworthy in his agenda.
And then wasted no time in disproving my post of a few days ago when I wrote that,
Unlike London, the Republicans can't merely write to Tim Pawlenty and tell him, "The White Man must be rescued."
Because and this is what undercuts Jonah's false assertions for why he doesn't like President Obama, the majority of conservatives and Republicans hate the President for his heritage. And no matter what his successes or his continuation of Bush policies they can not get past his skin color. So just like Jack London, Jonah Goldberg cried out to the Great White Hope. In Jonah's case, that hope is that Coupons-for-Healthcare Congressman Paul Ryan.

Jonah recognizes there is a paucity of competent, let alone sane, Republicans vying to challenge President Obama and in a show of conservative desperation Goldberg allows his inner-racist to peek out,
So the question many are asking is, should Ryan ride to the rescue?
Many think that if he got the nomination, he would clean Obama’s clock in the debates.
Jonah finally ends in calling for his Great White Hope to rescue America from the unworthy one,
Unless someone suddenly rises to the challenge, the cries of “Help us, Paul Ryan, you’re our only hope!” will only get louder.

This is what Republicans believe: They Represent Israel

"There are no eternal allies only eternal interests." - Lord Palmerstone
To listen to Republicans lately you would think they are Representatives of Israel and not of the American People. But, this shouldn't surprise anyone because Republicans long ago gave up representing the American People in favor of Oppressing them.

Here's Republican Joe Walsh of Illinois,
"The short answer is that most American Jews are liberal, and most American liberals side with the Palestinians and vague notions of “peace” instead of with Israel’s well being and security. Like the president, the U.N., and most of Europe, too many American Jews aren’t as pro-Israel as they should be."
Hey Joe, instead of worrying that "American Jews aren't as pro-Israel as they should be", why don't you concern yourself with the consistently failing Home Values of your constituents? But, Joe Walsh is a Teahadist Republican whose job is to throw verbal fire-bombs about President Obama and vote to give tax payer money to obscenely Rich Multi-National Oil Companies while at the same time cutting funding for reduced school lunches for the poor and destitute Americans in his District. Joe Walsh doesn't care about the people in his District.

Daniel Webster, Republican of Florida, went on a Good Life 45, a fundie televangelist program and declared,
"I love giving money to Israel. And so there’s a picture there that people realize that, we stop helping Israel, we lose God’s hand and we’re in big time trouble."
And then there is Michele Bachmann, verbal terrorist, the less quittier version of Sarah Palin, whom the Republicans love when she attacks President Obama or Liberals but fear because of her propensity to say out-right lies and make crazy unsubstantiated claims. In March 2010, Bachmann said,
"I am honored to be in a position where I can help Israel. I have a tremendous love for Israel, and great admiration for the Israeli people. I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian."
After President Obama outlined his Israel/Palestine policy, centering on the 1967 borders, Bachmann couldn't wait to side with a foreign power over her own Government. She released an official statement, in which she stated I disagree with President Obama and I stand with our friend Israel 100 percent and produced 150,000 robocalls in Iowa and South Carolina. Bachmann's district is in Minnesota but you couldn't know it by her obsequious defense of Israel and the time she spends in other states.

Republicans are more than willing to throw the American worker into the mix against third world slave factories to fight for wage slave rates but the deference to Israel is mind boggling. Do these Republican Congresspersons care about the tough economic times facing their constituents? Why are they spending so much time fighting for Israel? Why is Billions in foreign aid to Israel supported en masse by these same Republicans who have voted to eliminate Medicaid and Medicare for Americans?

Sadly, some of the GOP really believe in christian end times prophecies centering around Israel. As such, they want Israel to exist in the Middle East just long enough to spark a conflagration which will not only consume the Israelis and Arab peoples but every American as well.
"The point of departure for permanent status negotiations to realize this vision seems clear: There should be an end to the occupation that began in 1967. The agreement must establish Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people, just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people. These negotiations must ensure that Israel has secure, recognized, and defensible borders. And they must ensure that the state of Palestine is viable, contiguous, sovereign, and independent." - George W. Bush, Jan 12, 2008

This is what Republicans believe: Joplin, MO

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan
As it was enumerated by their blessed Saint Reagan, when disasters strike Republicans tell American Citizens, 'Fuck off and die. You are on your own.' This is why Americans believe "Government" can't do anything correctly, because when Republicans are in charge they consciously sabotage government's abilities.

In Joplin, MO the death toll is 139 people. 139 unique persons killed by increasingly aberrant weather patterns. 100 more are still missing including 9 believed to be dead but not identified. Missouri Officials have the remains of 142 people, but that includes partial remains. But, horrifically, “Some of those remains may be the same person,” Missouri Department of Public Safety Deputy Director Andrea Spillars said. Thousands are in desperate need of immediate assistance, homes obliterated, lives shattered.

But, what is Eric Cantor and the Republican party's response? No federal aid until the Democrats agree to cut government spending.

Dana Loesch, Andrew Breitbart's disciple and the St. Louis Tea Party co-founder sums up what assistance TeaPublican Party Government would offer to the residents of Joplin, "Prayers". Shit in one hand, pray with the other, see which fills up first Dana...

The Republican Party does not care about you. They are not in power to help you. They are in power to crush the American Dream. They are in power to ensure everything in America is privatized. The Republicans serve the Mythos of Disaster Capitalism. To the Republicans Joplin just represents another chance to weaken the Federal Government and enrich themselves, their cronies and their Moneyed Masters off the labor and lives of Americans.

Joe Walsh, Totally Not (Racist - Illinois) Fiscal Terrorist

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) scolded Senator Scott Brown for opposing the House GOP budget from Paul Ryan.
"Respectfully, Scott Brown ought to be ashamed of himself," Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) told Neil Cavuto on the Faux No Business Network. "This is the defining moment of this generation. We have got to be bold. We know these entitlements have to be reformed to be saved. He knows that."
Defining moment? Yep, Walsh knows that with Michael Madigan's congressional redistricting map he has no chance of winning another election. As such this 2 year window is his moment to do as much damage to the poor and middle class as possible. Which is why Joe Walsh supports eliminating reduced school lunch prices for struggling parents, the destruction of Medicaid, the theft of Social Security, voting to continue Corporate Welfare for Multi-National Oil Companies and then disingenuously saying we should end them, and the transfer of US taxpayer dollars to the Plutocratic Class and their off-shore bank accounts.
Walsh added, "Any Republican that doesn’t vote for this or doesn’t support this is purely being guided by political reasons."
Unlike Walsh who is being guided purely by Class Warfare and the $$$ he expects to collect from the American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute and other Right Wing Grift Tanks. As well as, the influence peddling he will do once Walsh settles into his role as Special Interest Lobbyist.
Walsh continued. "This is not time to be politically scared. Every day I am in this town I am more convinced this president has no clue as to the financial cliff we are about to fall off of.”
The Republicans are running around like Chicken Hawks with their heads cut off. Every Republican is facing the prospect of defeat if they support Paul Ryan's plan to Abolish Medicare and Enslave America. But, they are also facing the Grover Norquist Inquisition on the grounds of not being enough of Fiscal Terrorist.

Now, Joe Walsh won a close race against a centrist Democrat, Melissa Bean in 2010. But, whenever a Republican wins a seat in the Federal Government he knows his job is to do as much damage and throw as many (rhetorical bombs) at the middle class and poor as possible.

But, the funniest thing about certain Republicans, like Joe Walsh, is no matter how hard they flog that chicken of fiscal disagreement with President Obama, one other thing comes back into play every time the totally not Racist Republicans speak. See if you can identify what Joe Walsh is talking baout in his latest quote:
"Why was [Obama] elected? Again, it comes back to who he was. He was black, he was historic. And there’s nothing racist about this. It is what it is. If he had been a dynamic, white, state senator elected to Congress he wouldn’t have gotten in the game this fast. This is what made him different. That, combined with the fact that your profession”—another friendly tap of the bumper sticker—”not you, but your profession, was just absolutely compliant. They made up their minds early that they were in love with him. They were in love with him because they thought he was a good liberal guy and they were in love with him because he pushed that magical button: a black man who was articulate, liberal, the whole white guilt, all of that.”

Huge Boobs makes a Lawyer...

Lawyer objects to Buxom Woman
A Chicago lawyer says his opponent in a small claims case is using an unfair tactic by sitting a buxom woman next to him at counsel's table.

Attorney Thomas Gooch says the woman's sole purpose "is to draw the attention of the jury away from the relevant proceedings" — a dispute over a used car.

"Personally, I like large breasts," he said. "However, I object to somebody I don't think is a qualified paralegal sitting at the counsel table — when there's already two lawyers there — dressed in such a fashion as to call attention to herself."
I object! Basically, without pictures this story is worthless. How do you have a lead about a "Buxom Woman" and not even include a courtroom artist's sketch?

Well, seriously, the lawyer's arguments are basically that the jury will be so focused on the giant (.)(.) juggs that their erections will keep them from ruling in his favor. What does it say about the lawyer? Is this a good argument? Or does it fall under the tri-parte lawyers adage;
When the facts are on your side, argue the facts. When the law is on your side, argue the law. And when you don’t have either the law or the facts on your side, just argue!
However, we do have a rare case of a lawyer telling the truth when Gooch (really, Gooch?) states, "I like large breasts."

Tim Paws the Teachers

Taking his cue from Andrew Breitbart, Tim Pawlenty, the GOP White Hope, is making sure conservatives know that those damn teachers are responsible for the economic collapse.

- Not Billions in Corporate Welfare to Oil Companies.
- Not Billions of Dollars physically lost in Iraq.
- Not anti-Free Market DoD contracts to non-American companies.
- Not Billions to Israel.
- Not Government bailouts for White Collar Wall Street Criminals.

Nope it's because,
“The rise of government unions has been like a silent coup, an inside job engineered by self-interested politicians and fueled by campaign contributions. Unionized public employees are making more money, receiving more generous benefits, and enjoying greater job security than the working families forced to pay for it with ever-higher taxes, deficits and debt.”
Yep, Tim Pawlenty goes after the struggling middle class workers. Every time a Republican blames their economic catastrophe on Public Workers, Grover Norquist strangles a cat.

The most ridiculous thing about Pawlenty's glorious decision to join the campaign is the, cough... Liberal... cough... Media fawning over him. And it reminds me of Jack London and Jack Johnson.

President Obama is very much like Heavyweight Champ Jack Johnson. And his every success is an affront to the Grand Old Racist Republicans. It's bad enough he's President but to also succeed in getting Osama Bin Laden, to arrest the Republican created economic catastrophe and pass a (admittedly flawed) Healthcare law galls them unbelievably. Unlike London, the Republicans can't merely write to Tim Pawlenty and tell him, "The White Man must be rescued."

But, that's the daily narrative; the birtherism, the over-enunciated Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the Newt Gingrich Kenyan anti-colonial* mindset comment, Jerome Corsi, Dinesh D’Souza and his, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s, to Erick Erickson, World Net Daily, Sean Hannity, Pam Geller, Faux News, R. Limbaugh, Free Republic, and every Right Wing blog. The Right has completely given itself over to the venom of Hatred of the Other. And to them President Obama is the Other.

*- You know who else was anti-colonial, George Washington and the Founding Fathers. Seriously, the Revolution started with them wanting their rights as Englishmen, the term American was an epithet used to insult those living in the colonies.

Please Help the Republicans Eliminate Welfare and Reduce Government Spending

By demanding they stop the Corporate Welfare to Oil Companies, cut foreign aid to Israel and reduce the Department of Defense budget by half.

With these simple to adopt austerity measures, the standard of living for Americans would increase dramatically and the future promises to our citizens would be remain solvent for a century.

Eh, What's that? What's that you say? Oh, that's right to the Republicans anything which does not advance their goals of enslaving the American People to the Rich is not worth doing.

At a meeting in the Chicago headquarters of the CME Group, “the world’s largest owner and operator” of private exchanges for derivatives products, Eric Cantor spoke to his Moneyed Masters to assure them the Republicans will never curtail their Welfare.

And further informed them, Republican never-had-a-real-job paper pushing bureaucrats will fight any safety regulation which protects the lives of Americans at an expense to their bottom line.
"Whether it’s the EPA, the FDA, the FCC, the SEC, the CFTC, you name it, there is an acronym for a federal agency causing harm right now. We’re trying to pull that in." - Eric Cantor
We all know that the Republicans have no interest in stopping the Corporatist Neo-Feudal Government which controls the Federal Government these days. That is their only reason they are in office. The Republicans job is to make the Government subservient to business.

On May 22 2011

The world will still be here and the christians who supported Harold Camping will as well. The world goes on despite religious fantasies and fairy tales.

I began seeing those doomsday billboards up along the Ike and Edens expressways a few months back. Besides the date, May 21, 2011 and the Judgement Day is Coming warning written on them I couldn't make out any thing else on them, mainly because in Chicago traffic one needs to pay attention to the stop-and-go flow.

I thought it might just be another fundamentalist special on the need to repent, a general warning that Judgement was eventually coming sometime soon and advertising some huckster's 3 hour fire and brimstone All-State Arena spectacular.

It was only later that I learned the billboards were actually claiming to indicate the endtimes. On May 21 2011 at 1800 eastern the Chosen shall be raptured as earthquakes strike every time zone.

The best response to this claim was from Richard Dawkins. Dawkins told Washington Post On Faith editor Sally Quinn, "Why is a serious newspaper like the Washington Post giving space to a raving loon?"

Even though Camping violates one of the established Apocalypse principles, that the Rapture Ready must be told the endtimes is near but just far enough away from their lifetimes as to allow them to be continually sold on the false beliefs of the bible, it doesn't matter.

The failure of the May 21, 2011 End of the World will be forgotten as easily as Camping's 1994 End of the World predicition and every other fundamentalist nutjob's Apocalypse claim.

In his last book, A Demon Haunted World, Carl Sagan wrote about a conversation he had with the Dali Lama:
In theological discussions with religious leaders, I often ask what their response would be if a central tenet of their faith were disproved by science. When I put this question to the current, 14th, Dalai Lama, he unhesitatingly replied as no conservative or fundamentalist religious leaders do: in such a case, he said, Tibetan Buddhism would have to change.

Even I asked, if its a really central tenet, like (I searched for an example) reincarnation?

Even then, he answered. However, he added with a twinkle, its going to be hard to disprove reincarnation.
So, we now have 2000 years without a Second Coming. It's really time the so-called christians think about what they believe and why they believe it.

Lies, Lies and Videotape: The continued Slander from Dana Loesch and Andrew Breitbart

"We are going to take on education next. Go after the Teachers and the Union organizers." - Andrew Brietbart on Sean Hannity's show, April 18.
A week after telling Sean Hannity and his deluded Faux viewers he was "going after the teachers" Andrew Brietbart's website had videos up of two University of Missouri-Kansas City teachers apparently inciting violence. The Right shifted into attack mode as hundreds of posters on Breitbart's websites and Faux Viewers angrily vilified the teachers as typical union thugs and parasites destroying America.

Now, given Breitbart's history of deception, fabrication and Breitbart's stated goal of going after teachers why would anyone believe videos, excerpts or anything he purports to be a factual gotcha moment.

I think for two reasons. One, the people targeted are for the most part actually honest people, who when presented with what appears to be evidence of wrongdoing investigate it as though the complaint has merit. This is, of course, what Breitbart and his ilk on the Right are hoping for and expecting. They produce naught but lies and slanders and are hoping the better nature of their targets will lead them to immolate themselves. The other reason must be the people targeted are afraid. They are afraid of the backlash and violence that Breitbart is threatening them with. Breitbart and his proteges' will unleash the anger and death threats of their ignorant rabble and the power of the Republican Party to levy sanctions and specious criminal complaints.

This recent attack in Missouri is spearheaded by Dana Loesch, who runs one of Breitbart's hit piece slander websites, is the co-founder of the St. Louis Tea Party and is a regular contributor on CNN (your liberal media). The videos are of two University of Missouri-Kansas City teachers Judy Ancel and Don Giljum. A Washington University (near St. Louis) student named Philip Christofanelli, downloaded a streamed video class and provided that video to a group run by... convicted criminal, Sean Hannity darling, and Andrew Breitbart employee James O'Keefe. Once it was in O'Keefe's hands he edited it to show the teachers actively encouraging violence by Union workers. Dana Loesch received the video and ran with it.

Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder joined Dana Loesch on on her radio show to engage in The Two Minutes of Hate against those awful thuggish anti-captialist teachers:
Pete Kinder: What would be the reaction from the lame stream media, if we had a Tea Party leader out there—

Dana Loesch: Oh, right.

Peter Kinder:-advocating violence-

Dana Loesch: Right.

Peter Kinder:-and preaching violence to impressionable young minds? They sit around matter-of-factly—you can hear this on the two videos that are up on, you can see it—matter-of-factly discussing violent overthrow of the capitalist order or the existing order.

Dana Loesch: Well, and this is-and there are a lot of people that like to say, 'Oh, well, this-you know, it was done in a—they were just talking about, you know, different—they were just learning, and it’s academic freedom, and, you know, it needs to be a'-that’s not what they were doing. You had people-

Peter Kinder: That is not what they were doing.

Dana Loesch:-who were giving their personal experiences engaging in this stuff.
This nonsense from Loesch and Kinder fits into the crafted alternate conservative narrative the Right has spent years working into the fabric of society.
- It attacks the "lamestream" media.
- It contains the specious 'Could you imagine if one of us was caught saying x' catch-phrase which is used by the Right as a cover of their bigotry and lies.
- And it is a manufactured outrage, using videos and narratives which are lies, to denigrate a group whom the Right hates.

What does it say of a political movement that they can only advance their agenda through lies? We've seen this before from Breitbart, O'Keefe, and Dana Loesch against ACORN, Shirley Sherrod, Senator Mary Landrieu, Planned Parenthood and the peaceful Pro-Union rallies in Wisconsin. But, that's the point isn't it? The Conservatives have reached their conclusions and are engaged in unlimited warfare against Liberals and Progressives. As such, they believe all tactics are acceptable. They will lie, cheat, fabricate and do whatever is necessary to advance their agenda.

Boeing turns to the Republicans to bust their Union

While I've pointed out the Republicans elected in 2010 have no interest in jobs and are focused on implementing their bigoted social agenda, it turns out I was incorrect. The Republican Party's prime goal is to eliminate Union jobs and replace them with at whim employees whom their Moneyed Masters can work as Wage Slaves.

Chicago based Boeing, in retaliation against their Union Workers, has decided to move a 787 plant to South Carolina, a so-called Right-to-Work State. This is because South Carolina outlaws Unions. Can't have workers gettin' all Uppity and shit!

S. Carolina also has Nikki Haley, a Teabagging Governor. Haley had this to say, when the National Labor Relations Board took up the Union complaint to stop this move, "If this is checks and balances, God help our country."

Well, just to show the anti-Big Government Teabag checks-and-balances loving Nikki Haley is up to typical Republican malfeasance, she has nominated 59 people for State Government positions 26 of whom gave at least $74,703 in campaign contributions to her Sarah Palin styled election effort. Nepotism IOKIYAR.

Senator Jim DeBigot had this to say, "The administration is acting like a bunch of thugs." So typically the Republicans in the Senate rush to service their Corporate Masters.
Thirty-four Republican senators introduced legislation Thursday to protect states' "right-to-work" status and to ban the chief federal labor agency from determining where companies can do business.
Boeing should be able to do as it pleases and move it's manufacturing plant where ever it wishes. That seems reasonable right? A company has the "right" to set up a factory where it deems, right?

Well, the short answer is no. Fuck no when that company is primarily funded by tax payer dollars. Boeing like all Corporations receives Billions from the US Government. These Military-Industrial-Complex jobs are the ugly unspoken secret about the hollowness of the whole job debate. Boeing could not compete on the Open Market and only succeeds by Government Welfare, like this recent $35 Billion dollar US Air Force deal, euphemistically called Defense Contracts.

If a company is taking tax dollars We the People get to decide how you treat those workers. You have to pay them decent wages, provide them with healthcare and other benefits. But, that's not what Boeing wants, it's not enough that Boeing is funded almost completely by US, they also want to cut expenses (i.e. overtime pay, vacation time, sick leave, disability) to nothing and work Americans to death to increase their bottom line.

And that's the secret of the Republicans. They take Taxpayer money and funnel it to Mega-Corporate Monsters who then turn that into campaign contributions so evil assholes like Jim DeMint and Nikki Haley can turn their deluded supporters into cogs in the machinery of Boeing's Corporate Welfare.

Conservatives celebrate rape and All your Ladyparts are belong to Us

The Republican War to control women gets more loathsome by the day. Despite all their rhetoric about the economy and jobs, the Republicans have been focusing on re-exerting control of Women and to that end are proposing and ramming through legislation with that goal in mind.

The US House of Representatives has 242 Republicans, 24 are women, the US Senate has 47 Republicans and 5 are women. So only 10% of the Republicans in Congress are women but, don't worry your pretty heads' ladies the Republican male dominated Congress knows what's best for you and every other woman in America.

You see Republican men know about Rape and know it's only Rape when it's forcible.

Christopher Smith was the Republican chosen to sponsor the forcible rape provision. What exactly constitutes force was never described and the Republicans faced opposition to their outrageous evil 'forcing' them to back down, Smith declared the forcible rape language would be removed. But, Republicans are slimy liars and when they passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Bill (HR 3) on May 9th, the bill achieved a similar goal as the redefinition of rape by using the power of the IRS, the threat of audits and byzantine Medicare rules to ensure women are punished for being raped and impoverished or incarcerated for having an abortion.

Because if you are raped Republicans and Conservatives believe it's the woman's fault. Faux News will immediately go on air to declare it's definitely your fault because you dared show your 'filthy lust-ridden body' in public without a burqa.

Rebecca St. James' and Sean Hannity had a gay old time blaming rape victims during his segment on "Slutwalks", when she stated women,
"are asking for sex. They’re asking for sex if they’re dressed immodestly.” And, “There has to be responsibility, though, for what a woman is wearing, personal responsibility.”
Conservatives and Republicans then love to have a token representative, whose power and position are tied to the Patriarchy, carry the banner of the Right's Repression and Dogmatic Misogynism as Kirsten Powers did in further blaming rape victims for being raped. I point Sean Hannity, Kirsten Powers and Rebecca St. James to the Illinois Complied Statutes:
(720 ILCS 5/12‑17):
The manner of dress of the victim at the time of the offense shall not constitute consent.
But, Sean Hannity is a shameless hypocrite, just like his Republican Masters, who wails and tears at his breast to demonstrate his love of law but is more than willing to ignore laws when they don't conform to his sociopathic immorality.

In Texas, the Texas Legislature and Rick Perry declared they needed an emergency session to pass an invasive transvaginal sonogram bill, mandating all Doctors perform a sonogram before performing an abortion wait 24 hours then show the pictures and describe the image to the woman. So much for the GOP fear mongering about Government getting in-between Doctors and Patients.

There are many more restrictive laws in State Houses across the country and the Republicans defeated assault on Planned Parenthood, including John Kyl's ridiculous lie that 90% of Planned Parenthood's activities are abortion related*, are all designed to get women back under the control of the Patriarchy.

The Republican Party, the party of racist, homophobic, misogynist, religious zealots, is rushing forward to do as much damage to the American People as possible. And while they've focused on women, their classic target, the GOP have a stable full of federal and social bills designed to harm as many middle and working class Americans as possible. And it's for one simple reason; The Republican Party are the hired Assassins in service to their Moneyed Masters and the Plutocracy.

*- When questioned about his claim, Kyl's spokesman said it was "not intended to be a factual statement", i.e. a lie. John Kyl then had the Congressional Record altered so people wouldn't know he's a liar.

The GOP's Stealth Plan to Redefine Rape [Mother Jones]

Republicans support Terrorists' Rights to Bear Arms

The Republican Gun Crazies in Illinois have been emboldened by the US Supreme Court's ruling in McDonald v. Chicago, a massive encroachment upon State's Rights, via their legislating from the Bench when 5 unelected judges declared Chicago's Gun Ban unconstitutional in 2010.

So, it's bad enough some out of touch Judges feel they know better than the people of Illinois and Chicago. Now the Republicans, in direct opposition to the health and safety of their constituents, have voted to put guns in the hands of Terrorists:
Republicans on the House Judiciary panel shot down a proposal Thursday to prevent weapon sales to suspected terrorists.

In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list.
The Gun Rights of Terrorists and Criminals are more important to Republicans than the safety of regular Americans. Republicans are scum.

But, it would be bad enough that Republicans are helping Terrorists they also want those Terrorists carry their weapons of mass destruction concealed.

Illinois House Bill 148 the concealed-carry bill, failed to clear the House last week, as it needed 71 votes but only garnered 65. State Representative Daniel Biss (Democrat of Evanston), who voted against the bill, put the sights squarely on the NRA Gun crazies, "By definition, the easier it is to carry guns, the more opportunities people will have to shoot each other." But, the bill is far from finished and could be back up for consideration by May 20th.

What exactly are Republicans doing? Obviously, Illinois Republicans hate police officers and law abiding citizens. Because the voting record of Illinois Republicans is designed to ensure some Copper in Illinois is going to come upon a most wanted Terrorist who will produce a hidden firearm to gun down that officer.

But, the Republicans and Gun Crazies are hoping enough deluded citizens will fantasize that they are Charles Bronson in Death Wish and will gun down the bad guy, when the more likely scenario is the nervous and confused person is going to unload 12 rounds and not only not hit the perp but mow down some innocent bystander in the process.

The arrogant Gun Crazies are banking on the fact that most people don't understand the Constitution. The Second Amendment begins, A well regulated Militia, but Republicans hate the Constitution and hate public servants and hate regular Americans.

Republicans and Gun Nuts would rather see Terrorists waltzing around with multiple concealed firearms on their person and frontier style gun battles waged daily than protect their voters and uphold State and Federal Law.

Pamela Geller proves President Obama was overridden by the Military

While, every flabby-assed, pasty-faced, Republican Chicken Hawk has been failing over themselves to give President 9/11 Failure the credit for Killing Osama Bin Laden
"Obviously, we’ve got to give some credit to George Bush for making this a decade-long commitment." - Jim DeMint

"I commend both President George W. Bush who led the campaign against our enemies through seven long years and President Obama..." - Newt Gingrich
Pam Geller, in her post Skulking Towards bin Laden: Obama Overridden by Military and Intel Officials in Takeout of OBL?, has learned:
A reluctant American president who was ultimately overridden by senior military and intelligence officials to finally take out terrorist Osama Bin Laden. The killing of Osama Bin Laden was in fact a Coup within Obama WH.
And you know this is true because Pam references, a NewsFlavor blogpost by Ulsterman, who received the information from.... an unnamed long time D.C. Insider! And that unnamed D.C. Insider wrote This is legit. Nothing proves truth more than the writer telling you it's legit!

Right Wing Blog Trolls also note that the White House released Sit Room photos show the laptops are off. They're Off! Now, as most conservatives are fucking ignorant cowards who don't know a thing about the military they have no idea of a concept named OPSEC.

Additionally, Pam points out President Obama's attire and concludes the military dragged President Obama off the golf course, because every Real American Hero is decked out in flight suit and bulge accentuating codpiece.

Even now, the shameless lies and tapestry of vile hatred directed at President Obama will not cease. The Conservative movement is over. It's in it's "last throes, if you will." The only question now is how much damage to the American People will it do and will the United States survive the hatred of Republicans when they continue their assassinations of Democrats and Liberals?

Bin Laden’s death means…

"Nobody talked about attacking Pakistan," Obama said after McCain accused the Illinois senator of wanting to announce an invasion. "If the United States has al Qaeda, bin Laden, top-level lieutenants in our sights, and Pakistan is unable or unwilling to act, then we should take them out." - Barack Obama 09/28/2008
I wonder how the Right will attack President Obama over this successful Operation. The Most Important Operation since the 9/11 attacks occurred under President Bush.

Sean Hannity, Dana Perino, World Nut Daily, R. Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Free Republic, Ralph Peters, Charles Krauthammer, Mitt Romney, and every ignorant Tea bagger conservative’s blog have proclaimed President Obama is not fully committed to killing America’s Enemies. Again the Right is heavily invested in their tangled tapestry of fabrications and lies about Obama. Again it is a matter of faith amongst the Right. The Divine Word has been revealed, there's a Kenyan born anti-colonial, un-American, sharia lovin' man in the White House! No amount of evidence shall shake their preconceived prejudice.

So, what kind of mental gymnastics and contortions will the Right go through to justify their ignorance and malice? My best estimation is that Faux will make some slurs towards President Clinton not getting Bin Laden, every Wingnut blog will shout Waterboarding and the GOP's potential candidates will credit Bush’s torturous codpiece for laying the groundwork.
Update: And just like that, every Republican-never spent a day in uniform coward is falling over themselves to praise Bush for killing Bin Laden, because you know that’s how it really happened, even if Bush declined the Taliban's offer of Bin Laden and personally undercut the Tora Bora Operation…

Leaving the back door open gave the rat a chance to run. - Kill Bin Laden, pg.294 by Dalton Fury

Also I've been reading Wingnut blogs for over 2 years who've been demanding there be a time limit on blaming Bush for nearly destroying America. Yet, now these same bloggers, in this case Ralph the Malcontent, are giving Bush the credit for this Operation, Inherited It from Bush?!!!
I can't blame them. The conservative strategy has always been to blame their failures on Liberals and take the credit for things Liberals achieve. It works. It keeps conservatives stupid and duped and voting for Republicans.

What Faux and their conservative drones will not do is recognize that President Obama’s policy towards Pakistan is largely responsible for this victory. Do you remember that for 2 and half years conservatives snidely mocked Obama for pronouncing Pakistan correctly. And then Commander Codpiece and ½ Governor Palin had this to say back in 2008;
“The only foreign policy thing I remember he said was he’s going to attack Pakistan…” George W. Bush

“Senator Obama has also advocated sending our U.S. military into Pakistan without the approval of the Pakistani government. Invading the sovereign territory of a troubled partner in the war against terrorism.” – Sarah Palin

This is an important victory. This could be the catalyst that allows Obama to extricate US from the grip of the Warmongers. Hopefully, President Obama will have the moral courage to draw down our military presence and allow the UN to take over nation-building in Afghanistan.

Additionally, I wonder about that supposed “escape” of 500 Taliban in Afghanistan a month ago. It could be that a deep undercover operative was planted in the prison and the escape attempt was allowed to succeed in order that the operative could make an eyes on identification of UBL.

May Day, Haymarket and the FOP

On May 4, 1886 an agent provocateur, most likely a member of the Pinkerton's (The Blackwater of the 19th century), lobbed a bomb at a labor rally, at Haymarket Square, which killed a Police Officer and started a riot in which 11 more people lost their lives.

125 years ago Police Officers could be counted on by the Plutocracy to beat, shoot, arrest and disrupt pro-Union demonstrations. They were the buffer, as Howard Zinn put it, The Guards of the System.

Today the Plutocracy has continued it's string of victories over the American People. However, the Kleptocrats can no longer count on their traditional Guards to defend their Rich Privilege and they have thus turned to the Republican and Democratic Parties.

With very few exceptions elected politicians can be counted on to enact legislation which aids, succors and provides comfort to the Rich Kleptocrats. Again as the late great Howard Zinn, artfully identified the enemy of the American People;
the Establishment-that uneasy club of business executives, generals, and politicos.
In the past the Establishment, the Kleptocrats, have been content to take a significant portion of America's Wealth but now, thanks mainly to Republicans, they find themselves in a position to hold a Majority of the Wealth of this Nation.

So, the Police who were once counted on to defend the Plutocrats have turned. FOP members and I stood shoulder to shoulder with our Wisconsin brother officers and with fellow Unions members up north.

The Fraternal Order of Police recognizes an attack when they see one. Once expected to bust up Unions, keep minorities and immigrants in their place and ensure the transfer of Wealth to the Rich Klepocrats, Police Officers are now counted amongst the class of people the Establishment wishes to marginalize and oppress.
Your law-enforcement training and experience have taught you how to protect yourself, your fellow officers, and citizens from criminals. Some of those criminals want nothing more than to do harm to an officer. You know to be on your guard, ready to act, and to do what is necessary to protect yourself and others.

Nothing in your formal training has prepared you for the new attack that we are facing as law enforcement officers. Now the criminals are not the only ones that want fewer officers on the streets. Now the criminals are joined by politicians in State capitols across the country. These politicians are doing what criminals everywhere have long hoped for; they are shrinking police forces, putting fewer officers on the streets, and undermining the safety of the officers left on the front lines.

Your job is on the line. Your pension is on the line. Your salary is on the line. Your safety is on the line. You must be on the front line defending your rights against these attacks.

Are you ready to act? Are you ready to protect yourself and your fellow officers? Are you ready to defend your family?

You have been targeted. You have been blamed for the financial crisis. You will be a victim of government mismanagement and scapegoating if you don't fight back.
But, while the filth-ridden Republican scum Governor's Scott Walker, Rick Snyder, Rick Scott, Jon Kasich, Chris Christie are clearly enemies of America they are merely hired foot soliders, akin to Iraqi Republican Guards, while the Koch Brothers are the Uday and Qusay Husseins of America.

And the Uday and Qusay Koch Brothers want more. Thus the attack on Public Employees. It is but one of their sorties against the American People. One of the tactics the Establishment is using to reduce the American People to frightened Wage Slaves.
