Right Wing Fabrication to grow the Alternate Conservative Reality

Conservatives have no shame in claiming liberals are evil, but what they do have problems with is actual evidence. Thus enter the age of Rupert Murdoch and the Fake News.

The names Andrew Breitbart, Dana Loesch, James O'Keefe are well known and synonymous with crafting a fake story built on playing to conservatives pre-conceived notions, video manipulation and punch-a-hippie narrative but what is genius about the Alternate Conservative Reality is that much faster than Twains observation about lies, modern conservative falsehood move at the Speed of Light.

Enter the two recent episodes:

A Google+ account under the name "Paul Krugmann" released a message after the East Coast earthquake, "People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth if the earthquake had done more damage."

This was immediately grasped by the Right Wing buffoons and retweeted, posted, facebooked and blogged.

The big problem was Paul Krugman didn't write it and the account is not his account. Over at Hotair, you have the comments winner with,
"I don’t really care if this moron said it because I know for a fact there are progressives out there who do actually think a good catastrophe would be good for the economy. Unless of course it is an oil spill in the gulf that kills birdies and makes The Messiah look bad."
One of the worst things I've ever read. First he starts off the statement truth doesn't matter to him because he has his conclusions and then rambles on to disprove himself by excepting the BP/Haliburton/Transocean casued Gulf Disaster.

But that is not enough to stop pasty faced, flabby assed chicken hawk Jonah Goldberg or the National Review Online or the Michelle Malkin's on the blogosphere. Their job is too immediately run with stories which make liberals look bad and if the story happens to be totally false, say a black male Obama supporter carved a letter B into a white girl's face because of her McCain bumper sticker, conservatives don't care because they aren't interested in facts only in ramping up the next story of liberal evil.

Andrew Breitbart decided to claim on his Biggovernment website that New Jersey Democrat Frank Lautenberg said we've got to eliminate the rich in a speech a week ago. His video presentation on his website isn't the uncut video but has big gaudy powerpoint graphics splayed across the screen like a hack's attempt at subliminal messaging (((Eliminate the Rich))) voop voop voop. The problem, of course, is when you listen to the speech Lautenberg actually said "eliminate the waste".

This doesn't matter to the likes of Mark Levin or Real Clear Politics or any of the hundreds of Conservative blogs which dutifully pick up the Breitbart fabrication add their "the libs masks are coming off", "liberals are evil stalinistas", "start with yourself commie" and go forth to further propagate the lie.

Because that is all they need. Conservatives have an internally consistent false narrative (liberal=evil) which they fervently believe unquestioningly. That False Narrative in their brains demands they twist ever situation to fit it and if they can not then just make it up.

Now, this is one of the fundamental problems with blogs and bloggers in general. The death of Newspapers and journalists have created an atmosphere in the web cloud wherein anyone thinks that by splashing a link to Matt Drudge or the Huffington Post and commenting about it they are doing journalism.

At best, this is a misunderstanding of primary source and secondary source reporting.

At worst, this is a shameless attempt to propagate a lie into internet truth and do as much damage with it prior to the truth being revealed. Unfortunately, the things conservatives know are lies and how to damage America.

Sure, enough it is the worst. Krugman's Google+ account was started by a Right Wing Punk Ass Bitch named Carlos Gaterol, who wanted to show through 'parody', "the many misguided beliefs that Paul Krugman holds, defends, and espouses on a daily basis." When you can't find the evidence to confirm your conclusions just make it up, Conservative Mantra.

It's not a new phenomenon of the Right to impersonate Liberals and Progressives, conservative punk ass bitch Tucker Carlson pretended to be Keith Olbermann and sent out emails to smaller news reporters, in an effort to manufacture a controversy.

Here is Media Matters list of the 10 worst Right Wing fabrications of 2010.

Disaffected Presents: Tales of the Classacre

James Mahoney, Director of Public Policy for Bank of America Executive was the Criminal who told Rick Perry "We're going to help you out."

Wells Fargo creates a $3 fee everytime you have a Debit card transactions. Is this worse than screwing minorities during the Housing Scam, Credit Fault Defaults, and Sub-Prime Mortgage banking fraud?

Speaking of the Republican crafted Sub-Prime Loan Fraud Crime, 100 million dollar man Sean Hannity just found out, in 2011, that there is this thing called a "housing bubble" and people are losing their homes! Of course, Hannity doesn't have to worry because the 100 person staff he employs to maintain his multi-million dollar mansion reside in shacks on the grounds of his Upper New York palatial estate.

Quarter Billionaire Mitt Romney bemoans the poor economy decides to blames Jimmy Carter (so much for the conservative demands of a time limit on blaming past Presidents, that the only demand when it's a REpublican) and Barack Obama. As for Reagan and the Bushes, Romney knows nothing of the 20 Trillion dollars the Republicans added to the debt. Romney then decides to bulldoze his puny mansion and have a one 3 times larger built in it's place.

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild is still mad at Obama. In a Salon article she propounds her status as an ardent "lifelong Democrat", who supported McCain/Palin in 2008 and Jon Huntsman in 2012. She then explains Politics belongs to the Upper classes not to losers.
But, the gist of her comments haven't changed in 3 years: From July 2008: "Frankly I don't like him,” so says Lynn Forester de Rothschild of Obama in a July 2008 interview with CNN’s Joe Johns.

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild went on to state, “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”

The thrice married Lynn Forester de Rothschild, who met her third husband, Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild, at a Bilderberg Meeting in 1998.
Oh Irony! Elitist and trust issues from a member of the Bilderberg?

"[N]ot all tax relief is created equal for the purposes of helping to get the economy moving again." ~ Jeb Hensarling (REPUBLICAN) Ahem, are you poor or middle class? Well, the Republican Party has a message for you go to work in the salt mines and die you fucking peasant.

Covering Up Wall Street Crimes: Matt Taibbi Exposes How SEC Shredded Thousands of Investigations

And here is the final measure of the working man, the ENTIRE Deficit comes from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. So, when Republicans bring up the necessity of slashing Pell Grants, the EPA, Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid, Liberals and Democrats should consistently state the Republicans not only want to kill your children but, your grandparents and eventually you.

Obama's Excellent Libyan Adventure or Bush's Bogus Iraq Journey

America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. ~ John Q. Adama

"Excellent!" ~ Bill and Ted

"Who do you think? The Libyans!" ~ Emmett "Doc" Brown, Back to the Future

"Bogus..." ~ Bill and Ted
So, the Libyan Rebels have entered Triploi, taken over Mohamar Gaddafi's compound and are searching for Gaddafi, who is still at large. Clearly, his reign over Libya is at an end.

Well, I as a regular single American citizen was against any intervention into Libya, but Barack Obama is President and claimed the US aided NATO mission was necessary to first stop a general massacre of the Libyan people and then as a way to aid the Libyan peoples' efforts at ousting Gaddafi.

I don't have a Constitutional problem with the President's decision to use the US military because Congress long ago abrogated their power in that area. If Congress wants that power back they need to exert it, not wait. But, this current Republican led House has been trying furiously to figure out a way to cut funding for the Libya mission while maintaining their America Military=Freedom bona fides.

However, the successful operation has highlighted a long known fact about the Republican Party. They don't give a shit about Freedom, they don't give a shit about the military and veterans and they don't give a shit about fiscal responsibility.

Long ago the Republicans staked a claim to being the experts on military matters. This current crop of crap GOP leaders and their follow on protege's however, have little and in most cases, zero military experience. The Republicans learned during Vietnam that it was better to be Pro-War while staying as far away from the fighting as possible. So to that effort they created the homefront efforts, 101st Keyboard Commandos and Chicken Hawk Warmongers who rally round the flag, pound their chests and eschew military service.

But, the current Libyan question struck right at the heart of the Republican chicken hawk nonsense. If the GOP was in favor of Freedom and fiscal responsibility they would be ecstatic that a NATO-led coalition aided by American airpower but led on the ground by Libyan "rebels" is winning over Gaddafi. But they are not. In fact, the Republicans and conservatives see two options over Obama's Libyan Intervention; Threaten Impeachment or send out John McCain and Lindsey Graham to complain the 5-month operation took too long. So, much for the In what respect, Charlie? so-called Bush Freedom Agenda.

Given the choice between a 5 month, successful strategic mission, with ZERO American casualties or a bloated invasion based on lies and selective interpretation of intelligence, 8 years and counting occupation with an open ended commitment, enormous bases, a city-sized embassy compound, over 4000 dead soilders, 25,000 officially wounded in action, and 6 Trillion dollars of stolen taxpayer dollars, the conservatives choose the latter.

Anyone not teabagging themselves knew the Bush Doctrine was a veneer for the biggest theft of wealth ever accomplished in American history, as the Bush/Cheney Regime used the Iraq War to steal billions for themselves and their cronies and political masters.

Capitalism Wills It!

"You have to recognize that free enterprise is based on free people and … free people are based on faith. The very basis of our belief and freedom is that we believe we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights." ~ Newt Gingrich
Oh Mighty Capitalism, please bless us with your bounties! For Yours is the Kingdom, The Power, and the glory forever and ever...

Capitalism is the god of the Corporatists. Sure, they make a show of belief in christianity but it's a sham, a mockery. Their true religion is Greed. And much like the conversion of Constantine in 312, they had a vision, Under this banner ($) shall ye conquer, and so they have.

The Richest 1% of this Nation control 50% of all financial investments. The top 10% have almost 90% of stocks, bonds, trust funds, and business equity, and over 75% of non-home real estate. Basically, 10% own the United States of America.

But it's important to note that for the rich, most of that income does not come from "working": in 2008, only 19% of the income reported by the 13,480 individuals or families making over $10 million came from wages and salaries.

The Rich have successfully waged a Class War on America. The reason Jimmy Carter has been so vilified by the conservatives is that in late 1970's the Top 1% "only" controlled 20% of the Nation's wealth. And that Oppression of the Plutonomy shall not stand! So, the Plutocrats of this Nation went hard to work to create Think Tanks, invest in school boards and buy political offices for the express effort to create brigades of Shock Troops dedicated to indoctrinating Piss Down Your Back and Tell You It's Raining trickle down economics.

And they've been successful at it. For instance, the Koch Industries, Exxon-Mobile funded Heritage Foundation rabidly cheered and promoted the Bush Tax Cuts. The Heritage Foundation's 2001 report proclaimed if the Bush tax cut legislation were to pass, it would:
1) Effectively pay off the federal debt;
2) Reduce the federal surplus by $1.4 trillion;
3) Substantially increase family income;
4) Save the entire Social Security surplus;
5) Increase personal savings;
6) Create more job opportunities.
Everyone of those claims did not happen and in fact the exact opposite occurred. But, what did happen was a massive transfer of wealth to the Ultra-Wealthy, which were the true goals of the Bush Tax Cuts.

Like any good despotic religion Capitalism moves quickly to to stifle and stamp out heresy. Billionaire Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in America, made the mistake of saying it's time Congress stop coddling Billionaires.

Blasphemy! The Shock Troops went to work quickly to denounce him and to assuage and tamp down any ideas in the heads of their slaves, the conservative voter.

The Plutocracy's Hitmen, the Republicans immediately tweeted their disagreement, mostly in the 'Oh Yeah? If it's such a good idea why don't you give billions of your money???'

And the Heritage Foundation omniously hinted at something far worse (psst... it's part of that marxist mulsim Kenyan Usurper's plan).
"A billionaire calling for more taxes might make great political theater, but there's more to the story than Buffett — and Obama — would have you believe,"
wrote Mike Brownfield, assistant director of strategic communications at the Heritage Foundation. Yikes, what a title! Mike Brownfield, Assistant Director of Strategic Communications! It almost makes it sound like Brownfield is something more than a pasty, flabby assed, never served a day in the military, never had a real job hatchet man for the Wealthy.

Champion Birther Joseph Farrar, of World Nut Daily, penned this eloquent work: Warren Buffett Just Shut Up! In his column, which I shall not link to, Farrar writes that: Most (his word) of the money collected by taxes is wasted on unconstituional (read as: Medicaid, Social Security, Pell Grants, reduced school lunch programs, the EPA, and OSHA) and concludes:
Do they really think it somehow benefits America to have Washington throw more money away on unconstitutional, fraudulent, wasteful, corrupt and immoral programs?

Are they socialists at heart?
But, the loudest propaganda arm of the Plutocracy, Faux News, immediately went for the Warren Buffett = Joesph Stalin by having Eric Bolling ask is Warren Buffett "Completely A Socialist"? Of course, the inestimable Jon Stewart does a better job of highlighting the vicious evilness of the Faux Propaganda Machine:

There are no depths the Wealthy will not stoop to in order to continue their Classacre of America. Andrew Breitbart blantantly lies and proclaims Democratic New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg says we have to 'Eliminate the Rich' when in the video the word can clearly be heard as "waste". It's already viral amongst the Conservative blog echo chamber...

So where are we? The massive Class War the Ultra-Rich have waged on us has succeeded but that doesn't mean we have to let them follow up their victory with legislation designed to cement their rule.

Turn off Fixed News, pressure President Obama to act like a Liberal, contact your Representative, show up to local meetings, vote out Republicans vote in Progressives. The Plutocracy wins based on their massive amounts of money it will only be through working and effectively projecting our Mass as the oppressed majority who will not accept Wage Slavery, a stultified caste system, bigotry and oppression that we have a chance to overcome them.

Bank of America will help you out! If you're willing to destroy the middle class...

Consumer Spending < The Plutonomy

I wish it would work... You can't expect to compete with that. Every day we get weaker while they get stronger. It's finished. I'm sorry. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
CBS Evening News had a story on the continued decline in consumer spending, in which, Scott Pelley said something shocking! That because of the lower consumer spending the economy is not turning around and we face another recession. Now how can this be? Everyone knows that Tax Cuts for The ***Job*** ***Creators*** and a strict Austerity Deficit Reduction stimulate the economy!

Here's the biggest economic disconnect facing Teabaggers and conservatives; If Job Creators and Tax Cuts are really the driving engine of the economy why has the last ten years been such a miserable downward spiral?

Why does the decrease
in consumer spending worry Wal-Mart's CEO Mike Duke?
"Purchases are really dropping off by the end of the month even more than last year," Duke said. "This end-of-month [purchases] cycle is growing to be a concern."
But, he's a Job Creator! Tax Cuts for Wal-Mart's founding family him grow the economy!

Remember We were assured that just another round of the Bush/Obama Tax Cuts for the Wealthy, just another round of reduced benefits, just another round of cuts to Medicaid, just another round of bailouts to Wall Street and viola We would have prosperity.

Well, it didn't happen, prosperity did not trickle down to us. But, what did happen was Hedge Fund Managers made Billions and Wall Street paid out millions of Tax Payer dollars to gamblers. According to the Federal Reserve, the top 1% now owns more than half the nation's stocks and controls more than $16 trillion in wealth — more than the bottom 90%.

How can this be? The consumption of goods and services by Middle and Working class America is what drives the economy. Transferring wealth to The Rich, The Plutocrats, The Moneyed Masters does not.

Well, the goal has never been to have a prosperous America with a thriving middle class, or a healthy working class inculcating their children with the American ideal of a meritocracy based on talent, education and hard work but to create the Plutonomy.

What has been placed in motion is a plan to concentrate wealth and power amongst the Richest and they have already won. Back in 2006 Too-Big-Too-Fail Citigroup crafted internal documents detailing that The United States (along with Canada, the UK and Australia) had become Plutonomies, with income disparity and wealth concentration worse than at anytime in US history. And they don't care. Because being too big too fail means they have a built in trump card They get to Socialize their Losses and Privatize their Profits.

And afterwards they can go back to their Political Hitmen and instruct them to remove every other minor obstacle; to destroy Unions, eliminate the EPA and OSHA, strike from law environmental regulations, slash meager benefits for the poor and swipe the Social Security fund for their use, anything which stands in the way of their total control.

Lowe's, Let's Destroy Something Together

Lowe's Home Improvement store in Schaumburg, Illinois snuck out in the middle of the night on Tuesday, closing the doors on it's 116,000 square foot store. The store had been open for 5 years. Lowe's also closed a nearby store in Elgin, Illinois.

Schaumburg is famous for Woodfield Mall which brings in a billion or so in revenue for the Village but, here's the question everyone should be asking; How much did tax incentives, deferred lease payments, quickly approved construction permits, free electricity, water and sewage did Lowe's get for convincing Schaumburg officials of all the wonderful jobs and money Lowe's would bring in?

Meanwhile, a nearby ACE hardware on Negre and Plum Grove Road is owned and operated by a family that has lived in the Schaumburg area for years, do you think they received any assistance?

Well, this is the crack-like allure Big Box Stores exert upon Village officials. They come in with an easy smile and visions of big time tax revenues for a town and like addicts, Village managers bend over to accommodate them. Of course, Lowe's, Wal Mart, target and the rest of the Big Box Conglomerates can easily slide from friendly to menacing by threatening to just open up in a neighboring town.

And so these big box bastards undercut local small shops and, in the past, have even run at a loss for years because they know once they eliminate the small shops they can raise prices. And if that tried and true technique should fail, say because of a Republican Recession,
“The sales numbers missed estimates,” said Abby Buford, a spokeswoman for Lowe's. “Sales were well below projections and they did not improve over time.”
Then they simply leave and leave a gaping monstrosity of a building vacant in your town.

And they call it Capitalism, because they Capitalize.

Michele Bachmann is a Muslim

Well, it's a shocking revelation (but then all revelations are shocking aren't they?) but Michele Bachmann has been hiding her true faith all along. Sure if your were paying attention back in 2006 you would have noted, Michele Bachmann directly stated,
"But the Lord says 'be submissive. Wives, you are to be submissive to your husband'...I was going to be faithful to what I thought God was calling me to do."
Submission? Islam means submission.

Bachmann has also recounted how she's just going along with what god says all the time. How god has called upon her to run for Congress and how god has called upon her to run for President. This is another solid foundation of islam, Inshallah literally if god wills it, and another clue about Bachmann's mulsim faith.

Now, I know what you're thinking. That Michele Bachmann is just a Dominionist Christian fanatic who is attempting to steal her way into the White House in order to supplant the US Constitution with the revealed word and bring about Armageddon in 2012. But, as every Right Wing blog can testify, muslims, like Michele Bachmann can lie to conceal their faith. And that is what Michele O'Bachmann is doing. She is hiding her muslim faith with lies. It's as though she's wrapped her brain in a burkha.

Frank Schaeffer lays bare Michel Bachmann's evil machinations:
Ex-Evangelical Denounces Michele Bachmann & Calls Christian Reconstructionist Politics "Anti-American"

The People's Champion... Corporate People

I am yours
You are mine
You are what you are ~ Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, Crosby Stills & Nash

Corporations are people, my friend. ~ Mitt Romney

They’re us. They’re the middle class. We all own parts of corporations. ~ Rand Paul
The big reason things are going this way is because the Bush Economy and the Republican Recession had no impact on the Ultra-Rich. The Wealthy, The Plutocrats, the Hedge Fund Managers, the Billionaires, Corporate Unpersons are doing better than at anytime in American History, in 2009 the top 25 Hedge Fund managers "earned" $25 billion amongst themselves - more than they had made before the Bush Recession, and the stock market volatility, the Union busting, the Charter Schools, the Tea Party, the GOP are all happening to continue and expand their dominance.

Your Moneyed Masters are doing fine, so sit back and relax America. And if you're not fine with that? Well, too fucking bad the Corporate Unpersons and their lackeys don't want to hear it. And they won't.

Remember the Free Speech Zones John Ashcroft ordered to safeguard the image of the Bush/Cheney Presidency? They are back.

Paul Ryan doesn't want to hear from you plebeians. Don't you dare befoul his ears with complaints about him destroying Medicare and Social Security. After previously just having Police remove filthy peasants from his presence, Paul Ryan has set up a pay-per-view Town Hall meeting wherein questions and questioners will be screened and must fork over a fee in order to ask him a question. The fee is nominal but the screening is invaluable to Ryan as his town hall will seem serene and calm and the Media can continue to fawn over him as a brilliant policy wonk who knows what to do.

Republican congressman Doug Lamborn of Colorado called President Obama a "tar baby" so he's now deemed his office "Private Property" and has placed signs declaring "No Protesting".

And at the same time the Supreme Court recently ruled that threatening President Obama's life is protected speech. And this is after the 2009 Tea Party Agent Provocateurs ambushed Democrats at town halls over The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). And everytime Bill Maher or Janeane Garofalo picked on the wrong target, the duped impoverished conservative, and called them racist (for... well... being racist) the more the Teabaggers ire was raised, the more they set themselves against other working people and the more Karl Rove, Dick Armey, the Koch Brothers and the Plutocracy cheered.

What the Republicans have done is a create a system where they will not allow you to protest them. We are rapidly moving to a time of One Party control of the government, as Gore Vidal called it the Property Party, which ruthlessly curtails any protest aimed at them but happily allows protesters to rail against the other party (you know the weak willed demonic party of America-hating enemy appeasers, who seem more than willing to play the role of patsy, of punching bag, of the Washington DC Generals.

Meanwhile, Corporate Unpersons steal Trillions, instruct their lapdogs to eliminate all safety and environmental regulations, tear down and pilfer benefits for the working classes, and continue sending your sons off to die in wars of Imperialist Market expansion.

Corporate Lapdog Rick Perry calls for a moritarium on all regulations.

Chicken Hawk Republicans 'Tip of the Spear' rhetoric

In The Talk section of the today's Chicago Tribune it was noted that Michele Bachmann said she was at "the tip of the spear" during the fight over the national health care overhaul. The writer also notes 'tip of the spear' rhetoric was used by Deadbeat Dad/Republican Joe Walsh as well and then questions How many tips of the spears are there?

Having spent time at Camp Red Spearpoint* in Iraq, I suppose I should be insulted by the constant rough and tough refrain which belches forth as a noxious blathering cloud from every Republican coward, but I'm not. I understand clearly why the GOP has embraced the military, I understand why Ronald Reagan and Michele Bachmann love John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy.

Republicans pretend to be brave and pretend to be soldiers because that sheen, that facade affords them the opportunity to use the military to advance their agenda of Oppression and Classacre.

Well, the answer goes back to the when the Republicon Party embraced their Insane Movement Conservatives during the Reagan Revolution. While the GOP has always had the violent militaristic factions it wasn't until the 1980's when the young College Republicans came under the sway of evil men, Ralph Reed, Grover Norquist and Jack Abramoff and they began to exert tremendous pressure upon the Republicons.

Conservatives have for years been more interested in fighting here than over there. And what were the fighting for? To insulate themselves into positions of power in the Federal Government from which they could wage their battle on the American people.

And much of this flows back to that icon of Republican Chicken Shit cowardice Ronald Reagan. Reagan was great at pretending to be a tough guy. So the College Republicans under Reagan embraced the langauge of war and the military. In the 1983 annual CR report Jack Abramoff wrote "Fighting the Left with a goal of victory" and "defund the enemy whenever possible. Note how today these are the same words used by Tea Party leaders like Judson Phillips, "I detest and despise everything the left stands for." And how Michele Bachmann stated the battle to eliminate ACORN was to "defund the left".

It has always been and always will be more important for conservatives to attack liberals than for them to worry about external threats, even when they, themselves have ramped up fear about external threats.

Vice President Dick Cheney used an attempted terrorist incident aboard a plane flying from the Netherlands to the US to attack President Obama,
"Why doesn't he want to admit we're at war? It doesn't fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn't fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency—social transformation—the restructuring of American society."[emphasis added]
Convicted Criminal Tom Delay, lifelong friend and benefactor of Convicted Criminal Jack Abramoff, used 9/11 as all Republicans did to attack Liberals,
"Conservatives saw the savag...savagery of 9/11 in the effects and, in, the at--attacks and prepared for war. Liberals saw the savageerry on 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapeutic understanding for our attackers."
What the Republicans did after the 1960's was learn to play the perpetual outsider to Washington DC. Forever more, they would be the Revolutionaries battling the enemy. And who was that enemy? Why the evil Liberals and Leftists in DC! Those Liberals are in cahoots with the commies, or the socialists, or the marxists, or the maoists. Or these days the muslims. What Barack Obama doesn't understand is it does not matter how effectively or how much money he throws into the Phony GWOT, to the conservatives he is axiomatically a muslim sympathizer. I'm certain I need not provide any examples since it is the daily talking points of every blogger, toxic conservative radio host and Faux persona. But, here's the odious Pamela Geller who claims that President Obama provided intelligence to the Taliban to enable them to shoot down the Chinook Helo carrying SOF and Navy SEALs because he's in league with the enemy.

Conservatives claim the 'tip of the spear' defense of the nation to deflect, when they are put on the defensive. "You can't be counted on to protect this country when it's under assault internally," stated the noisome R. Limbaugh, who aptly demonstrated that liberal bashing and hippie punching are the automatic response of conservatives, no matter the issue at hand.

So, the answer is; there are as many 'tip of the spearpoints' as necessary for the Republicans and conservatives to succeed in their unending war on the American people.

*- the base name has been changed, but any non-Republican chicken hawk can probably guess what base I'm referring too.

Michele Bachmann's Blemishes *Updated Turns out Bachmann doesn't have a Birth Certificate

In 2008, Michele Bachmann asked for the media to do an exhaustive investigation into every member of Congress. That spotlight has been shone upon her and her icky blemishes are coming to light. Bachmann has tried to cover-up her gross record but not even $4700 dollars of pancake makeup can obscure her blemishes. Sadly, what we've learned of Michele Bachmann is that she and her family are hypocritical big government welfare sucking, religiously insane christian fanatics who lack basic knowledge of America and even a basic sense of human decency.

Bachmann's family has received a Quarter of a Million dollars from the Federal Government over a period of 13 years, in so-called farm subsides. Bachmann's family can't survive in the Free Market so like lazy welfare queens they steal government welfare.

Marcus Bachmann used Medicare payments for the practice of laying upon of hands all over the bodies of young gay men and conducted seance pray-away-the-gay cures for homosexuality. Since 2006, Marcus Bachmann & Associates has received almost $30,000, according to Minnesota state records. The majority ($24K) came in the form of grants, funded mainly by the federal government, from the Minnesota State Department of Human Services.

Bachmann directly applied for and received a $417,000 Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac backed home loan in 2008. After benefiting Michele called for a dismantling of Fanne and Freddie.

It now makes sense why S&P also downgraded Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac since President Bachmann took a pledge to never raise the Debt Ceiling.

While flogging the Obama isn't smart he reads of a teleprompter joke, Bachmann pledged to never read from a Teleprompter and then immediately flubbed her line by calling herself President O'Bachmann.

Bachmann knows the Founding Fathers "worked tirelessly to end Slavery" at Lexington, Alabama and Concord, California. Even though, Bachmann knows Slavery was super duper better for Blacks when she signed a pledge to never allow Marriage equality which included a passage that, of course, black Slaves had better family life under slavery than today. (As an aside, this is a standard motif amongst conservatives that slaves had it better than blacks today along with the idea that liberals are the real racists because they won't tell black people to get a job like their industrious slave ancestors had.)

Bachmann is campaigning upon destroying the "job killing" EPA. And lo and behold Michele Bachmann has, in her capacity as Congresswoman, asked for money from the EPA. Oh, and remember that Failed Obama Stimulus? Well, on sixteen (16) ocassions Bachmann requested that failed Obama Stimulus money!

And even though President Obama is spending too much of the stuff Bachmann is very worried we one day might leave the dollar. She's so worried that one day, "We would give up the dollar as our currency and we would just go with a One World currency," that the only legislation she has ever written has been to ensure the US never "comingles the value of the dollar with the coinage of Zimbawae."

And then there is the god stuff. Michele has said repeatedly god has called upon her to marry her husband, to run for state office, to run for Congress and now to run for the presidency. The voice in her head isn't god's it's is her own and it's the same one that allows her to confuse John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy.

Michele Bachmann and her family are nothing less than anti-American hypocritical fools, zealots and thieves. Dan Savage correctly labelled Michele Bachmann and her family as Grifters and Scumbags.

Oh but, what power those eyes have over Tea Party folks! It doesn't matter how much Bachmann buffoonery is illuminated. Her rank hypocrisy is not an impediment and like most Tea Party folks I bet Bachmann doesn't even see a contradiction between her partaking of Government programs while she works tirelessly to destroy those very programs. Like most Teabaggers, Michele Bachmann, most likely believes she is a self-made superhero who has never used a government program.

Michele Bachmann refuses to show her Long Form Birth Certificate because it turns out she was not born in Iowa along with her twin brother John Wayne Gacy but was born in Canada.

Triple A, Standard Rookies and Poor Umpires

Born on Third, thinks he hit a Triple... ~ Molly Ivins of George W. Bush

Who could have foreseen that Standard & Poor's would downgrade the Credit Rating of America's debt? And why does S&P have any credibility?

The same group of Wall Street insiders who duped people into dumping their money into Wall Street by crafting bizarre mathematical derivatives, credit default swaps and giving bankrupt Ponzi schemers at Lehman Brothers, Bear Strearns and AIG, AAA ratings all the way up to when the bottom fell out, still have the power to forecast economic futures? Why didn't the Free Market eliminate a ratings agency like S&P which has either had some of the worst blunders in Financial History or colluded in the largest theft since biblical times?

I want to know why the all-powerful and all-knowing invisible hand of the Free Market hasn't strangled the likes of Jim Cramer? Jim Cramer recommended buying each and every one of the Investment banks on every show, which if you followed his advice would have netted you a loss of around 95% of your investment. For instance,
Jim Cramer recommended buying Lehman Brothers on 10/17/05 at $55.18 per share. On 9/5/08 with the stock trading at $16 per share, on CNBC, Cramer selected Lehman as a "screaming buy" and said things couldn't get any worse for the company. The firm went bankrupt and the stock trades for pennies per share for more than a 99 percent loss for Cramer.
I want to know how many Republicons other than Eric Cantor bet against the US economy by having their investment portfolios shored up with shorting long-term US Bonds? And I want to know which Hedge Fund Manager made Ten Billion dollars on his Billion Dollar bet that the US would lose it's credit rating?

Of course, if you wanted to be cynical you would say S&P did exactly what the Bankster criminals and Plutocrats wanted them to do. And after the Wall Street gambling bubble imploded and the Free Market was saved by Socialism what did the people get? Nothing. The Republicons in Congress have spent the last 3 years filibustering and impeding Wall Street regulation.
"I find it interesting to see S&P so vigilant now in downgrading the U.S. credit rating. Where were they four years ago when they, and other credit rating agencies, helped cause this horrendous recession by providing AAA ratings to worthless sub-prime mortgage securities on behalf of Wall Street investment firms? Where were they last December when Congress and the White House drove up the national debt by $700 billion by extending Bush's tax breaks for the rich?" - Senator Bernie Sanders
Precisely, Bernie. Where was S&P when the Free Market was falsifying data for the Plutocracy, the Bush Presidency and the Republican recession?

The Billion Dollar Hedge Fund wager is contested, but, Faux News and Right Wing blogs know a priori that evil George Soros did it...
