Conservative Domestic Terrorists Declare Armed Rebellion is now "Justified"

Violence and Bloodshed. Violence and Bloodshed. Violence and Bloodshed! - ManoWar
Well that did not take long.

Every elecotral defeat, every setback legislatively, every judicial decision becomes a Casus Belli for Conservatives. Conservatism is Terrorism.

Indiana Reprenstative Mike Pence Indiana compared the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding Obamacare to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. And Never forget who was in charge on 9/11. Pence later apologized for saying what he really thinks in his warped, oppressive Republican mind.

Leading members of The Heartland Institute, fresh off their Global Warming Billboard Charades released several statements. Unsurprisingly, they are chock full of Sturm und Drang,
“The president intimidated Chief Justice John Roberts like Hugo Chavez intimidates the Venezuelan Supreme Court. The rule of law is now dead. The American people have only one more chance now to save their country.” - Peter Ferrara, Senior Fellow for Entitlement and Budget Policy The Heartland Institute.

"Today’s decision will go down in infamy. It marks the moment when we all lost our freedom. There is no limit on the evil coming, unless we amend our Constitution. A dark day for America, indeed." - Maureen Martin, Senior Fellow for Legal Affairs The Heartland Institute
And they calls for armed conflict against the "Government", which have been en vogue with conservatives ever since that that that Barry Soetero dared step foot into the White House are now "justified".

Matthew Davis, a former spokseman for the Michigan Republican Party, sent out an email moments after the Supreme Court ruling to numerous new media outlets and limited government activists with the headline: “Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?”
“… here’s my response. And yes, I mean it.”

He said he was writing with an "eye toward asking at what point the Republic is in peril."

“There are times government has to do things to get what it wants and holds a gun to your head," Davis said. "I’m saying at some point, we have to ask the question when do we turn that gun around and say no and resist."

"Was the American Revolution justified?”
Mike Vanderboegh, the ex-militia blogger, conservative domestic terrorist who calls himself one of the "midwives" of the Operation Fast & Furious fake scandal, predicted if the Supreme Court declared Obamacare to be constitutional, it would lead to violent insurrection against "government tyranny." "I am on record as advocating the right of defensive violence against a tyrannical regime."

With all the fantasy scenarios Right-Wingers conceptualize inside their heads at what point do they gird up their loins and go out and shoot some police officers for trying to take away their guns?

The reactions over and over and over to electroal and legal defeats shows us what modern conservatives are; Disgusting and evil. Shameless and vile. Putrid and sickening.

But, it also shows who is supporting whom. OWS and #Occupy sought to change the power structure and spoke out against the Plutocracy and for that sin they were viciously put down time and again at various locations across the country. Conservatives are fighting for the Power of Plutocracy and thus the Establishment not only looks aside when they threaten violence but encourages and succors their efforts.

After all the Plutocracy knows that conservatives domestic terrorists aren't going to strike at any of them, the Koch Brothers, Jamie Dimon, Lyold Blakenfeld will be safe and protected in their compounds, while conservatives will walk up to their neighbor and shoot him for the crime of being a liberal.

As always it takes a Cowardly Conservative Chickenhawk Punk Ass Bitch to really have the most over-the-top reaction. Ben Sharpio, who in August 2005 wrote this tripe,
Did Iraq pose an immediate threat to our nation? Perhaps not. But toppling Saddam Hussein and democratizing Iraq prevent his future ascendance and ended his material support for future threats globally. The same principle holds true for Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and others: Pre-emption is the chief weapon of a global empire. No one said empire was easy, but it is right and good, both for Americans and for the world.
Tweeted this after the SCOTUS Obamacare decision:
This is the greatest destruction of individual liberty since Dred Scott. This is the end of America as we know it. No exaggeration.
It's too bad Shapiro sought the comforts of Harvard and the Bar and never enlisted during the struggle of Our Times for we might have been spared his opinions in the future...

Obamacare, Fast & Furious, Immigration, The DREAM Act and Impeachment

Are not what the Republicans and right-wingers told you they are...
“Well, we’ve had our brief moment of celebration, because the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is, in fact, unconstitutional. It’s what many of us argued all along," begins Republican Richard Mourdock in ObamaCare3: Revenge of Barack the Jedi.
Obamacare survived it's encounter with the Supreme Court with John Roberts voting for it's Constitutionality. Roberts ruled that the Healthcare Mandate is a tax,
"If an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes," Roberts wrote. He adds that this means "the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance. Rather, it makes going without insurance just another thing the government taxes."
So, now that everyone in America has to pay a Healthcare coverage "tax" perhaps the GOP will stop repeating their bullshit lie that 45% or 47& or 49% pay no taxes whatsoever!1!11! Oh who am I kidding with out their constant stream of bullshit lies Republicans would only be left with their rank racism.

However, upholding Obamacare is what many Republicans wanted because now they get to run on how evil it is and how imperative it is Americans elect Republicans to repeal Obamacare. As Richard Mourdock said in Obamacare 2: The Republicans Strike Back,
"Well, the Supreme Court has done what none of us really thought could happen. They’ve ruled Obamacare constitutional. Now, the fight has moved from the courts to the United States Congress. You can be sure starting January of 2013, if Republicans control the House and the Senate, we will be voting to repeal Obamacare once and for all."
Of course, just like their Jobs, Jobs, Jobs refrain from 2010, this is a thin sheen designed to dupe Americans into voting Republicans into office. Once Republicans are elected they'll simply ignore the lies they told to win office and set upon their true agenda of obliterating the middle class and subjugating the American people to Corporate Bondage.

Besides, the ACA victory the other big news made yesterday was Fortune magazine journalists telling Americans the actual truth about Fast & Furious instead of stenographing the out-right shameless lies of Conservatives.
Quite simply, there's a fundamental misconception at the heart of the Fast and Furious scandal. Nobody disputes that suspected straw purchasers under surveillance by the ATF repeatedly bought guns that eventually fell into criminal hands. Issa and others charge that the ATF intentionally allowed guns to walk as an operational tactic. But five law-enforcement agents directly involved in Fast and Furious tell Fortune that the ATF had no such tactic. They insist they never purposefully allowed guns to be illegally trafficked. Just the opposite: They say they seized weapons whenever they could but were hamstrung by prosecutors and weak laws, which stymied them at every turn.

Indeed, a six-month Fortune investigation reveals that the public case alleging that Voth and his colleagues walked guns is replete with distortions, errors, partial truths, and even some outright lies. Fortune reviewed more than 2,000 pages of confidential ATF documents and interviewed 39 people, including seven law-enforcement agents with direct knowledge of the case. Several, including Voth, are speaking out for the first time.
Now the problem, of course, is this does not fit the preconceived conclusions every conservative reached when they first saw President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. So, thankfully because they have the Alternate Conservative Reality to retreat to, they need not concern themself with the truth but have millions of other ignorant bigots to confirm they are Right!

Ah, and then there is always Illegal Immigration! As their lies about the fake Fast & Furious scandal unravel the Republicans always simply retreat to their other card, Racism.

The right-wingers have been proclaiming President Obama's failure to secure the border an impeachable offense for years. Now, that would be the Southern Border because that's where the illegal immigrants come from...

But, President Obama declared the United States Government would no longer be forcibly arresting and evicting children who through no criminal act of their own happened to be born of illegal immigrants.

Well, that ticked off the Republicans,
"Now if it’s bad enough and if shenanigans involved in it, then of course impeachment is always a possibility." - Senator John Kyl of Arizona,
Kyl has been in Congress since 1987 and as with all worthless Republicans he "inherited" his position from his daddy. Kyl was born in 1942 any guesses what he did in the 1960's? Why he was a lawyer and lobbyist who never served a day in the military.

Of course, Senator Kyl is simply a scumbag liar when it comes to Immigration reform because his Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 provided for a path to citizenship and thus most conservatives blasted it as an "Amnesty Bill" rewarding illegals "crimes".

But, the true goal of the bill was to create a revolving but permanent underclass of worker who could be hired legally and proudly by American companies, but who would receive no benefits and be easily replaceable when they earned their citizenship.

And, of course, Kyl's 2007 bill contained the DREAM Act. Which Senator Kyl supported until the dastardly Barack Obama declared this month he would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who match the criteria previously proposed under the DREAM ACT.

Because, once President Obama stepped into the White House, Republicans made the conscious and vocal declaration that they would undermine the country in every way possible if it meant keeping him a one-term President.

In 2010 Kyl made up this quote and relayed to an Arizona Tea Party gathering President Obama had told him during an private meeting in the White House,
"If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform”.
"The president didn't say that," Bill Burton said of Kyl's account. "Senator Kyl knows the president didn't say that."

But, what can you expect from Senator John Kyl? Everything he says is for effect and as his staff admitted in 2011 are "not intended to be a factual statement."

So, Senator Kyl by thy own petard shall you be hoisted, with all the immigration "shenanigans involved" you and your whole Party of Punk Ass Bitches needs to be impeached.

It goes beyond Mitt Romney outsourcing Americans Livelihood, Liberty and their Pursuit of Happiness

"I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that’s the America millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I believe in." - Say Anything Mitt Romney
Mitt Romney's career as a "Job Creator" was one of destroying American jobs and liveliehoods in an effort to turn a fast buck for himself and his Vulture Capitalist buddies.

It's obvious "President" Romney will use the office to advance a Reverse Robin Hood agenda of Transferring Wealth to the 1% and of furthering Income Inequality in the Nation.

The John Roberts Supreme Court is firmly entrenched in defending and advancing the cause of Corporate Power. Combine a Romney Presidency with a Citizens United Court and America can be guaranteed to be back in control of those who it belongs to; it's owners.

But, the United States would not be in this situation of the terrain hadn't been prepared by years of shameless lies, despicable insults, and out-right sabotage designed to poison the minds of millions of Americans.

The Right-Wing Guardians of the Plutocracy and their Toxic Commentators have so befuddled and enraged the American people that they've successfully displaced Americans anger from Wall Street Thieves and murderous Billionaires onto Liberals and Government ineffectiveness and convinced large swaths any regulation and all taxes are theft and socialism and the government needs to be shrunk down and drowned in a bathtub.

But, thousands of hours of Sean Hannity calling President Obama a "crybaby" or Bigot Brent Bozell calling President Obama a "skinny, ghetto, crack-head" and Billions in campaign ads don't win elections on their own. For that the Republican Party has turned to 3 mechanisms to aid their Theft of Americans Birthright and Total Plutocratic Control of the 99%. Voting Fraud, Voter Suppression and a Propaganda Campaign from the dutiful servants of the Rich.
“Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.” Republican Mike Turzai, Pennslyvannia House Majority Leader.
The American Spectactor, best known for it's agent provocateurs leading the charge at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum produced a video calling President Obama "The Most Uppity N-Slur in the World" and then decided to look up for a word which meant Uppity but which they could use.

While the actors change, it used to be Jimmy Carter, Bill and Hillary Clinton, today it's Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and President Obama, the play remains the same. The idea, the play, is to displace the anger which should be focused at American Vulture Capitalist Corporate Hegemony and their Hatchet Men, like Mitt Romney, and focus it on the everything which stands in the way of the Rich stealing the Wealth of Nations.

The question is will the lies, slurs and sabotage be enough to elevate Mitt Romney to Out-Sourcer in Chief? Will enough Americans vote to give away the Freedoms of their Fathers and surrender their Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?

Fast & Furious Conservatives are trying to Break the Nation with Obama Fatigue Syndrome

The recent Contempt of Congress vote for Attorney General Eric Holder is just the beginning. Vicious right-wingers are going to cause the Nation so much stress and consternation to make Americans just throw up their hands and vote for Romney to end the constant right-wing screeching.

Darrell Issa's committee and the months long hearings on Fast & Furious fall under the auspices of 'Where there's smoke there's fire' in attempting to convince Americans that all the fake pout rages by conservatives and hours upon hours of hearings and Faux News coverage indicate some vast, far-reaching conspiracy.

Now, Fast & Furious, Operation: Wide Receiver, and Gunwalking Stings have always struck me as wrongheaded and foolish. I don't subscribe to giving weaponry to "bad guys" in attempt to catch them doing bad things.

But, those type of Operations were very vogue amongst the Bush White House and his Chief Torturers John Yoo and Alberto Gonzales.

Those Operations allowed the Terra-wrist Fightin' Cowboy Bush to amble his way into a press conference and announce he foiled 13 Terrorist Plots this month and 6 terrorist plots that month...

Republicans like Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma even took to the Senate Floor to praise George W(orst President Ever) Bush for keeping America safe, except for that whole 9/11 thingie...

Nowadays, things are different, chief amongst the differences is the anti-America, Kenyan, Marxist, secret muslim, "monkey president" occupying the White House. Thus, everything that came before can be ignored in the #1 Goal of Republicans and Conservatives everywhere making America fail in order to regain the levers of Control.

Now, good right-wing propaganda involves utter falsehoods and complete lies, but Great Right-Wing propaganda has a kernel of impropriety attached to it. Conservatives have already allowed themselves to be convinced this whole incident is far worse than Watergate. But, when President Obama invoked Executive Privilege, well, while most right-wingers were convinced President Obama should have been impeached the day he took office, this whole debacle is "proof" the Department of Justice, AG Eric Holder and by extension President Obama are involved in "impeachable" offenses.

This entire spectacle is nothing more than an attempt to so stress, confuse, infuriate, exasperate and torture the American people that they will willingly concede and accept the chains of Slavery, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have guaranteed they will shackle upon 99% of the American people.

Why haven't the historically low tax rates not created millions of jobs?
Sending Jobs Overseas helps the U.S. - Bush Economic Council: "Outsourcing is just a new way of doing international trade," said N. Gregory Mankiw, chairman of Bush's Council of Economic Advisors, which prepared the report. Last year's Economic Report of the President predicted that 1.7 million jobs would be created in 2003. Instead, the nation lost 53,000 jobs. In Bush's three years in office, 2.2 million jobs have disappeared.
It's been 10 years since taxes were slashed and the 'Job Creators' still aren't creating jobs. Why?

Hey, middle class conservative. See that conclusion?
That's your taxes going UP while Mitt Romney's go DOWN
Because the reason Republicans cut taxes on the Wealthy was to crush the Middle Class and create the Neo-Feudalist State we are living in today. Income Inequality and the concentration of Wealth amongst the Richest 1% are at their worst levels in American History.

While, it's already been proven that Senator Mitch McConnell is a paid Guard Dog for the Plutocracy he apparently feels no compunction in showing he is so out-of-touch with what 99% of Americans are dealing with during this Republican Recession.

First Mitch expressed his anger at how the Poor have it so good and repeated the oft-quoted and refuted Republican lie about taxes, "Between 45 percent and 50 percent of Americans pay no income tax at all."

Then Mitch bowed to his Plutocratic Overlords and assured them what Republicans and President Mitt Romney will do is slash any Government program which aids the poor or Middle Class, "The issue of revenue, from our point of view, is tied to serious entitlement reform."

And President Mitt Romney has explicitly stated he will not only keep the current stratification going but will accelerate it. Mitt Romney's tax plan and the Paul Ryan Death to the Middle Class Budget are designed with the goal of making devastating cuts to Federal Programs designed to aid the poor and struggling Americans, while shifting those American Tax Dollars into the off-shore bank accounts of the Rich.

It's all out there to see, America. The Republican Party is telling you, now quite clearly, that they will cut your legs out from under you in service to the Rich.

And they know that if like colicky babies, they bitch, moan, pout and shout loud enough and long enough about President Obama enough Americans will give into their Temper Tantrum and allow themselves to give away their freedom for Corporate Bondage.

Mitt Romney may be Rich, but he's morally bankrupt

Mitt Romney and Don Draper have more in common than their greasy establishment haircut. Romney is a husk of a human, an empty shell of a man who uses people, takes all he can and then discards them.

It's far worse than Romney being a flip-flopper. He'll literally say anything or nothing in order to get enough poor people to vote themselves into Corporate Bondage.
“So I think it’s important for me to point out that I anticipate that there will be departments and agencies that will either be eliminated or combined with other agencies. So will there be some that get eliminated or combined? The answer is yes, but I’m not going to give you a list right now."
As President Obama continues to stand for progressive values; Most recently Marriage Equality and the Opportunity for children who've not broken any laws through their actions to become Americans, Mitt Romney has no response other than to attack the President.
"[M]y anticipation is I’d come into office and say we need to get this done, on a long-term basis, not this kind of stop-gap measure. What the president did, he should have worked on this years ago."
Oh, trust me, I'd do something just don't ask me what it is...

Now, the policies Romney has been clear about is stealing for himself and his Rich buddies Billions in U.S. Taxpayer dollars while raising the tax burden on the poor and middle class and eliminating the jobs of Teachers, Cops and Fireman, whom Romney and his Plutocratic allies despise.

Now, it being Mitt Romney he can't actually explain how his massive wealth redistribution upwards and reverse robin hood tax give away to Multi-Millionaires and Billionaires is going to be paid for other than the standard mantra that Tax Cuts pay for themselves.

Romney is a Soulless Automaton, "running for office for Pete's sake!"

Outright Disrepect for President Obama? What? Right-Wing Racism...

"Barack Obama's election was the occasion for an explicit statement from the Republicans: We are in this to defeat Barack Obama. We have no interest in passing a welfare reform bill. We're in a war and that's what it boils down to." - Thomas E. Mann
Daily Caller Pissant Neil Munro became a right-wing hero last Friday when he interrupted President Obama during a Rose Garden speech announcing a change in the U.S. policy on forcibly deporting children who've broken no laws by their own volition.

Munro asserted his white privilege and announced to President Obama "No, you have to take questions" and "What about American workers who are unemployed while you import foreigners?"

Read the entire transcript of at Talking Points Memo.

The final question Munro shouted, is nothing more than a right-wing racist lie, President Obama isn't "importing" anyone, Munro's disrespect was so egregious even Chris Wallace of Faux News called it "outrageous".

This latest show of outright bigoted disrespect is nothing more than conservatives trying to rattle President Obama. But, as always, President Obama remained as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Conservatives have been trying for years to invoke an angered reaction from President Obama. They want to run with the Barack Obama is the Angry N-Slur campaign. Once conservatives have even a two second video of Barack acting angrily it will be run more often than the daily Faux airing of the two New Black Panther Party members beating hundreds of white people just trying to cast their votes in 2008.

But, despite their worst efforts President Obama has remained a calm, cool, collected poised man.

Now, this hasn't stopped right-wingers from spamming viral Did you hear Obama is Hitler e-mails, distributing false images and fake videos purporting to show what the Main Stream Media won't show you, i.e. Barack the Angry N-Slur.

Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher have both highlighted the underlying and overt tenor of the conservative news stories from the past 4 years. The Republican Party made a tactical decision to court the racists who have been lying low but are deeply offended Barack Obama is President.

But, when the voters you are courting are the likes of Jeff W. commenting at View From the Right;
The liberals’ godless project of trying to transform selfish, lazy, impulsive people into good citizens through education, generous welfare programs, constant encouragement, and zero criticism is failing and is doomed to fail. It is another sad example of people who reject God believing that that they can become as gods.

The left’s embargo on any criticism of blacks is part of that failed project. Not only have trillions of dollars been wasted, but also many lives.
Racism and the Fear of the Black Man are the cards the Republicans are going to play.

Just compare Munro's bigoted bullshit with Jeff Gannon's stroke-tastic question to George W. Bush on January 26, 2005,
“Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines. And Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet in the same breath they say that Social Security is rock solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work – you've said you are going to reach out to these people – how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?"
Despite the falsely attributed quote to Harry Reid, Racist Limpballs said it pretending to be Senator Reid, it's amazing how cognizant the Democratic Leaders were of the desructive negligent malfesance the Bush Presidency was causing the American people and the economy and from which President Obama is still trying to save America today.

The Senate Banking Committee's effulent praise of Jamie Dimon

"Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks! If you don't have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself!" - Nein, Nein, Nein Herman Cain, The 1% Owns Congress.
Rich Powerful Corporations control the US Government. JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon (literally pronounced Diamond) went to Congress to have Tea Party Super-Hero Senator Jim DeMint, Bank Executive... I mean "Senator" Charles Schumer and the other members of the sycophant Senate Banking Committee engage in a display of bootlicking not seen since Republican lickspittle Joe Barton apologized to BP Chairman Tony Heyward for Gulf of Mexico waters and sealife dirtying up his companies oil.

In the face of this evil, we the 99% are divided. The Plutocracy has succeeded in dividing Us. Now, some of Us are more wrong than others, (If you believe the 1977 CRA was responsible for the Housing Crash 30 years later or if Herman Cain's denounciation of the Poor or Andrew Deadbart's declaration to "go after the Teachers and the Union organizers", resonated with you for instance) but the awful truth is money bought and owns both "sides" of Washington DC.

In Dimon's prepared opening statement, he claims JP Morgan Chase holds,
'[A]pproximately $1.1 trillion in deposits and $700 billion in loans. CIO, along with our Treasury unit, invests excess cash in a portfolio that includes Treasuries, agencies, mortgage-backed securities, high quality securities, corporate debt and other domestic and overseas assets. This portfolio serves as an important source of liquidity and maintains an average rating of AA+. The bulk of CIO’s responsibility is to manage an approximately $350 billion portfolio in a conservative manner."
You see? JP Morgan Chase only lost $3 billion out of a $350 billion dollar portfolio! What a crock of shit. As with just before the 2007 Crash, Dimon like all the Banking Criminals claims his $400 billion in liquidity has an average rating of AA+. Dimon is willfully hiding the nature of JP Morgan Chase's holdings.

The entire Wall Street/Big Banking Super-structure is built on a foundation of naked credit default swaps, bad derivatives and toxic junk. The Giant Vampire Squids were assured their profligate criminal malfeseance and outright multi-billion dollar gambles "hedges" were 100% backed by the full faith and credit of the US Taxpayers. And they still are...

It's not that we haven't learned from our mistakes. Senator Jeff Merkeley (D-Oregon) pointed out,
"In 2008, 2009, your company benefited from half-a-trillion dollars in low-cost federal loans, $25 billion in TARP loans, of TARP funds, untold billions indirectly through the bailout of AIG that helped address your massive exposure in repurchase agreements and derivatives."
But, Dimon smugly responded, "I think you were misinformed. [W]e were asked to take TARP by Tim Geithner and Ben Bernanke." And why not because the Giant Vampire Squids were going to treat the Trillions in Guarantees from the Federal Reserve as the Mob treated the Restaurant in Goodfellas:

Senator Jim DeMint decided to lovingly praise Dimon's profitability while complaining about the United States expenses,
"We can hardly sit in judgment of your losing $2 billion. We lose twice that every day here in Washington and plan to continue to do that every day."
Yeah Jim, "We" are losing billions every day because of the fucking Trillon Dollar War Budget you vote for every year, while you've voted to keep millions in Federal Farm subsidies and for the costs associated with paying your exorbinant salary, free government funded healthcare and the massive expenses for your giant tax-payer funded DC and South Carolina Staffs and Office Spaces.

Of course, DeMint being a prime Tea Party asshole wasn't finished as he implied Over-Regulation was the actual cause of JP Morgan Chase's $3 Billion dollar plus loss and asked pretty please if Jamie would tell him what to write down for future regulation,
"Every time something goes amiss, we want to add a regulation, and we’ve surrounded the banking industry with so many regulations. It will, I think, advise us, help us and—as we look forward, and hopefully it will contribute to best practice scenario in the industry, and I appreciate your emphasis on a continuous quality improvement."
So of course, DeMint and Charles Schumer aren't going to sit in judgement of their Owners. 16 of the 22 members have received numerous campaign contributions from JP Morgan Chase. A former Senator on the committee, Mel Martinez, R-Fl., is also now the JP Morgan exec in charge of Florida, Central America, and the Caribbean. Martinez was elected to the Senate in 2004 and went to the bank in 2010. And there has been a revolving door between staffers and aides for the Senate Banking Committee and JP Morgan Chase.

The Fault lies not with Us, but with our Political Stars...

Mitt Romney assures the 1% he will Destroy the Middle Class while Blaming Barack Obama for It

"He wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.” Mitt Romney broadcasts his desire to fire Americans. After all the 1% who are bankrolling R-Money have no need of teachers and cops.
Spending at the Federal Level for beneficial things like government workers salary and infrastructure has plummeted since the end of the Stimulus.
"Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. But it didn’t happen. Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s. The big surge in federal spending happened in fiscal 2009, before Obama took office. Since then, spending growth has been relatively flat. There has been no huge increase in spending under the current president, despite what you hear. - Rex Nutting, Marketwatch, Obama Spending Binge Never Happened.
Under Ronald Reagan and George W(orst President Ever) Bush, Republicans spent lavishly on Government to buoy the economy and hide the disastorus effects of their Austerity Programs.

Unfortunately for Right-Wingers, Bush's profligate $10,000,000,000,000 (10 Trillion) spending on the Phony War on Terror wasn't able to stave of the collapse of US Economy which ushered in the latest and greatest Republican Recession.

When actual figures were presented showing Governmental spending increased more under Republican Administrations than under President Obama, Right-Wingers went insane having their lies and their cognative dissonance exposed!

Now, it is not a good thing that President Obama has reduced spending, issued a 2 year pay freeze on civilian federal workers, cut government employees while keeping up the Phony War on Terror.

The reason the economy has not improved is President Obama has allowed himself to follow Republican economic policies, which combined with unconscienceable waste of lives and money pursuing Cheney's Wars have devastated our economy.

Meanwhile, Lord Mitt Romney, the Duke of Bain assures the Rich he will enslave the 99%,
"As for what to do for the housing industry specifically, and are there things that you can do to encourage housing? One is don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom, allow investors to buy homes," Romney revels in his callous disregard for families getting kicked out of their homes.
Besides promising to fire and eliminate Middle Class Americans (his speciality), President Vulture Romney stated his Day 1 policies are designed to expand the Income Inequality, accelerate the transfer of wealth upwards to the Rich, and impoverish 99% of the Nation.

In fact, the first thing Romney has promised to do, is give himself a $5,000,000 tax break while also cutting the the income tax rates for the obscenely Rich while raising taxes for the Middle Class and Poor.

Romney has also promised to approve the Keystone XL pipeline project. After providing no more than 5,000 temporary construction jobs, the pipeline would only succeed in transporting Billions of Dollars of illicit petro-dollars to the obscenely wealthy Romney supporting Plutocrats and Multi-National Oil Conglomerates, leaving Americans a legacy of rusty foreign manufactured shoddy steel pipes, pumping toxic Canadian shale oil, across American aquifers for transport to China. Read the Cornell University Global Labor Institute report,
Pipe Dreams? Jobs Gained, Jobs Lost by the Construction of Keystone XL which punctures all the manna from heaven bullshit claims of instant prosperity by TransCanada Corporation and the American Petroleum Institute.
But, a .pdf produced by a "liberal" college? All that's needed to completely undermine it is for Faux News to hire Sarah Palin to proclaim, "Our Nation Is Woven Together With Pipelines..." and the Fox viewership is thus secured.
“Fox is watched by the true believers. We need to get the independents and the women.” —Mitt Romney, on Fox’s viewer base (Source:
And thus, President Romney and the Plutocracy get the Middle Class to destroy itself...

Walker's win in Wisconsin eliminates Uncertainty, shows the Dominance of the Neo-Feudalist State

Scott Walker, criminal and heir-apparent to Ronald Reagan, easily won his Recall election.

It's a blow to the Democratic Party and to the American Left. While, I still believe President Obama will win in November, even if he does (and possibly with his assistance) the Rise of the Plutocracy and the Dominance of the Neo-Feudalist State is not going to be stopped.

Unions were already one foot in the grave, when Scott Walker at the behest of his Lords & Masters, the Koch Brothers, decided to "Divide & Conquer" and kill them in Wisconsin. The Plutocracy has so much power and influence that one party (the Republicans are completely servile and worship the Rich) and a majority of the other (the Democratic Party) are under their sway as well, it will take a reborn Labor Movement to undue the damage of the last 30 years.

Right-Wingers are correct to be mad about the Government; It doesn't represent them. The Government represents the Richest 1% (or 1 in 100 Americans) and increasingly just the Richest 0.1% or 1 in 1000 of Us.

But, while millions of Americans continue to suffer from the Republican Recession, the 1% of this Nation have increased their share of Wealth, rebounded and are doing better than they were before The Republicans led by George W. Bush and his Plutocratic Owners crashed the economy.

While we Liberals and Unions have been working to lift up Our Fellow Americans, conservatives have been convinced that it is by destroying collective bargaining rights, crushing Unions and tearing down their fellow Americans which shall bring about a smaller, more representative Government.

But, what Conservatives seem to fail to understand is the 1%, the Plutocracy only speaks the words of Small Government, Free Market and Capitalism. Their actions show what they really want is a Neo-Feudalist State, in which the Government ruthlessly defends their vast wealth and crushes any real or imagined threats by the 99% under the Iron Heel.

As I wrote on New Year's Eve 2012, The 1% Hate Uncertainty,
The 1% of this Nation hate uncertain elements. What they would rather have is the certainty of the economic model they are confident in; Neo-Feudalism, in which their profits are privatized and protected by Government and their losses are socialized and paid for by the 99%.

The 1% don't need you. But, what they do need every so often is to eliminate Uncertainty. And that is why the filthy 1% who deliberately caused the economic collapse and the housing bubble are now trying to convince enough people that it was caused by social programs for the poor and middle class.

Because they need to get their Wholly Bought and Paid for Republican Party and Pro-Business Democrats elected to eliminate Uncertainty so that they may turn all of America into A Galt's Gulch. But while, they live as Lords, the 99% will live as serfs and wage slaves mining their gold, picking their arugula and quietly dying off when their working years are over.

Because that is Certainty the 1% are Striving towards; Rand's Ultimate Vision for the 99%, for the Common Man, that he toil unobtrusively underneath the feet of the 1% Colossuses and have the courtesy to die quickly and quietly.
So, the question is what lesson shall we all take from Scott Walker and Wisconsin? Are we now locked into a path leading us down to Corporate Bondage and Wage Slavery? Or will we rise in Solidarity and craft a truly Democratic Party to represent Us and Our Prosperity?

New Black Panther Party Member Jonah Goldberg will beat you up to keep you from voting

The current water-carrying, torch-bearing, scholar of the Right is Jonah Goldberg. It's only in Modern America where a dilettante can be paid millions to write books claiming Liberals are meanies and "properly understood" Nazis, get invited repeatedly onto various "liberal" television news programs and makes sweeping pronouncements about things of which he has no experience.

Well, Jonah decided to educate his right-wing followers about young people,
“I don’t think youth politics is something very special or enviable. Personally, I think the voting age should be much higher not lower. I think it was a mistake to lower it to 18, to be brutally honest.”

"It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth. So we should really explain to them why they’re “so frickin’ stupid about some things. We’re all born idiots, and we only get over that condition as we get less young.

"The fact that young people think socialism is better than capitalism. That’s proof of what social scientists call their stupidity and their ignorance. And that’s something that conservatives have to beat out of them. Either literally or figuratively as far as I’m concerned."
Ah yes! Social Science which is as squishy as the giant band of fat encircling Jonah's brain and midsection.

However, I sure hope Faux News runs with the Conservatives have to beat young people literally to get them to vote Republican story as much as the New Black Panther Party video! You know who else wanted to restrict voting rights? Adolf Hitler and the Nazis! But, somehow video of blubbering, man-boobed, fleshy-faced Jonah threatening to have conservatives beat young people into voting "Right" isn't that scary...

Moreover, this is basically a warmed-over version of the If you're not a liberal at 20 you have no heart and if you're not a conservative at 30 you have no brain quote falsely attributed to Winston Churchill. So, besides being a literary hack, a chicken hawk coward and a liar (Jonah and his publisher have been claiming he has "twice been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize" when he never had) Jonah's also a sloppy plagiarist.

Sadly, Jonah Goldberg embodies everything wrong with conservatives in one fat corpulent form. He inherited his position at the National Review Online from his mother. He's never done a real day's work. Of course, Jonah is also a rank coward and chicken hawk warmonger (when Republicans are in power) who fastidiously shirked military duty to remain at his keyboard "defending" America.

Besides what I've mentioned Jonah has no credentials or accomplishments and he is clearly doing the bidding of the Plutocracy yet despite his utter lack of anything positive he is treated as a Very Serious Person.

On the release of his second manifesto about mean liberals, Goldberg got into a tiff with Piers Morgan when Piers asked Jonah how much the military operation to Kill Bin Laden cost. Jonah rather than admitting he has no knowledge of anything military related and would rather talk about how mean President Obama is, got flustered, and highlighted his hog-shit ignorance [See My Post: Jonah Goldberg pouts because Piers Morgan is mean and conservatives are Hypocrites].

But, even after Jonah proved he and his work is nothing more than recycled hog shit, Jonah keeps on talking about the military.

On Memorial Day, Jonah spoke about how he studied the military. Now mind you Jonah doesn't actually know anything about the military and he wouldn't go onto a military base to talk to active service members or to a VFW to talk to Vets. No Jonah spent his Memorial Day at the same place he spent the Iraq War, a Keyboard,
“I spent part of my Memorial Day going over some of the demographics of veterans,” Goldberg said. “And it shouldn’t actually shock us that Romney is doing well. It seems to me that if you were a traditional military voter, you might have some serious problems with Obama. The way he sometimes talks about the military, he talks about the troops — it can often seem narcissistic, political, and rub people the wrong way."
Leaving aside Jonah's continued despicable comments about the President's character, something he knows even less about than the Military, Jonah, like his mother before him, is nothing more than a paid goon for Rich right-wingers to attack Liberals. Jonah Goldberg has "seen the elephant" and he won't stop stroking him.

Ann and Mitt Romney (R-Money) and the joys of "Not Working"

Rather than talk about his plans, or his disasterous record as Governor of Massachusetts or his days eliminating Americans jobs as a Wage Slave Trader for Bain Capital, Mitt Romney campaign is built upon the foundation of Obama isn't Working.

Now, for the $990 Dollar shirt-wearing Ann Romney, Not Working is her choice and a state of mind. But, for poor women Luxuriate Ann Romney holds,
"I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids."
Wage Slave Trader Mitt R-Money was only too gleeful to talk about Americans being unemployed. When Americans lose their jobs, it makes Mitt happy! Mainly because it makes Mitt money. This is why Mitt is happy about the May 2012 unemployment figures. The more Americans suffer the more money Mitt Romney makes.

There's something especially pernicious in the way Mitt and Ann talk about Americans losing jobs, getting fired by Mitt or having to work hard harder than the Gilded Romney's.

But, getting back to the Obama isn't Working campaign slogan, I don't believe Mitt Romney is a racist, but to what base instincts of the right-wing voter is this phrase designed to appeal?

Obama isn't working? It seems to be a clear dog-whistle. It seems the reason the right-wing universe is constantly hammering away at President Obama with the idea that he's always on vacation, that he's playing golf or basketball (including the evil right-wing idea that President Obama was golfing when the Kill Bin Laden mission was occurring and had to be photo-shopped into the Situation Room image), is to cultivate the idea that Barack Obama is a lazy...

Even though, as of August 2011, President Obama had taken 61 vacation days while at similar points in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch and Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch. Currently, President Obama has taken half the time off that George W. Bush did.

But, this is just window dressing, the slimy tactics, underpinning the Republican Plan to capturing the White House. The real issue is the Richest people in America are not satisified with President Obama. The Wealth of the Nation is not trickling up to them fast enough. President Obama's stance on making millionaires and billionaires actually pay taxes instead of getting away with paying nothing has angered the Plutocratic Elites. The Koch Brothers are committed to spending $400 Million Dollars buying the Presidency for Mitt.

And Mitt Romney has made it no secret to his Billionaire Brethren that he will remove their onerous 13% tax burden while shifting the entire burden of the Federal Government onto the bowed backs of Middle Class and Poor, they are willing to spend $1,000,000,000 Dollars, to get him elected.
