Life and Liberty in America is for (Straight) Christians Only, everybody else can go to Hell

Right Wing Freedom of Religion is the freedom to use their Religion to impose their will upon all of Us. Because America is for Christians only.

The same mindset which fuels the Zealotry of the ISIS/ISIL fuels the Religious Loons in the United States.   It, of course, doesn't mean Americans Religious Nuts are the Same as the Islamic Religious Nuts because the muslim extremists are by far more honest and more open about their goals whereas the American extremists lie and try and use back-door illegal channels to get their Christian Fascism ensconced into Law.

Ben Sasse, the Republican nominee for US Senate in Nebraska believes, Religious Liberty gives him and other Christians total immunity to break laws with impunity.
Government cannot force Citizens to violate their religious beliefs under any circumstances...
Of course, we are talkin' bout Real Religion not "neo-pagan and polytheistic, pre-Christian deities,” and therefore it does not fall within “the Judeo-Christian tradition" distinction which Chesterfield County in Virginia proclaims are the only true religions and therefore the only ones allowed on their official county list.

Senator Orrin Hatch says if the SCOTUS doesn't give him the power to Oppress people using Religion he'll change the Constitution to make sure it does. 
"I hope the Supreme Court doesn’t screw that up is all I can say. Because if they foul up the First Amendment again, we are going to have a constitutional amendment," Senator Hatch said during a Memorial Day Speech, when asked about the pending Hobby Lobby Case before the Supreme Court.
These aren't fringe weirdos like Reverand Terry "Muttonchops" in Florida and his quran burning obsession. These are the erstwhile Leaders of the Republican Party elected to State and Federal Offices.

Republicans also routinely claim to be modern prophets. Ben Carson, claims The Lord GAWD had delivered unto him a message,
"I realized that God probably had something special he wanted me to say,” Carson explained. “But I didn’t know what it was until the morning of the prayer breakfast." 
"After a while of wrestling with it, I just said, I’m leaving it alone, the Lord will tell me what to say," he continued. "And that morning, it was so clear in my mind what I was supposed to say."
And that message? Healing the Sick? Helping the Poor? Aiding the Afflicted? Nope. America must have a Flat Tax!

Because Supply-Side Jesus teaches us, it is easier for a Rich Man to pass into Heaven seated comfortably on the back of a camel than for a poor man to pass through the eye of a needle.

GOP Congressional Candidate James Lankford in Oklahoma has let it be known far and wide that Gawd Himself! has called upon him to run for the U.S. House. Now, how can you vote against a White Male Christian and consider yourself a good and true America? You can't libtard!

But, what this bible-thumping and proclamations of persecution leads to; is Violence in the name of the Lord.

The latest NRA-supported shooter of the 74 School Shootings since the Pro-2nd Amendment Massacre at Sandy Hook, Jared Padgett in Oregon was indoctrinated by Mormon Religious Fanatics and was highly regard by Church Elders for his spirituality.

He expressed his desire to cleanse the world of Sinners. Get 1000 of the same thinking types together, give them a Religious Demagogue to lead them and you have the ISIS/ISIL.

But, don't worry because before the Christian Zealots can begin their pogroms and attempted overthrow of the Government the Conservative Domestic Terrorists will have launched their Insurrection and attempted Coup.

From Right Wing Watch comes everybody's favorite fake Historian and Fabricator David Barton. Who explains how the bible teaches us to Vote based on Gawd's Top Ten List:

Seems I was correct about the Racist Scumbag Joe Walsh all along

"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." Racist Scumbag Joe Walsh in 2011.
Driving along the Tri-State I am constantly assailed by billboards for Where does Chicago go for Answers? AM560 The Answer. Portraits of the on-air *cough* talent *cough* are displayed on the billboard. Besides the big lights in toxic conservative talk radio, Sean Hannity and Dennis Miller, a headshot of former Congressman Joe Walsh is also displayed.

Well, Joe Walsh has always been a charlatan as well as a racist scumbag jagoff.

Walsh has been pulled from the 560AM lineup indefinitely because he kept trying to say the racist insult of African-Americans on live air.

It's always aggrieved white conservatives who are just infuriated they can't scream that word out loud whenever and wherever they wish.

So, they invent ways around the societal ban on the word. One way conservatives circumvent the societal taboo on the word is the fabrication of quotes.

The classic Tea Party fabrications involve the Founding Fathers having agreed with the Right-Wingers on every issue. But, when it comes to racism Tea Party types slander President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

The fake quote every duplicitous evil lying conservative believes LBJ said and of which there is no evidence other than the incestuous right-wing internet fart bubble but which they repeat so the can scream the taboo word is, I'll have those [redacted] voting Democrat for 100 years.

This is a maliciously fake quote. It's easy to tell because of the use of term Democrat. But, man do Tea Baggers love to spew it forth. It confirms so much for them and swaddles them in the righteousness of their bigotry.

Ah, but Joe Walsh was such a special Congressman. His putrid record was on par with several of the worst Tea Party bozos.

During the Glorious Clinton Era, Joe Walsh ran for office twice as a 'Fiscally Conservative/Socially Liberal' Illinois Republican, Walsh even went so far as to use President Clinton's phraseology on abortion, declaring he wanted it safe, rare and legal. But, in 2010 he saw an opportunity with the rise of the Koch-funded Tea Party and attached himself to them the way a louse attaches itself to a horse's ass.

Joe Walsh was beloved by Tea Parties across the Nation, of course inside his district Illinois residents knew he stood for nothing, had no ideas and only ran for office in order to free-government supported healthcare coverage and to enrich himself at the taxpayers expense.

Here are some of the disgusting lowlights of despicable Joe's two years in office;

"[T]oo many American Jews aren’t as pro-Israel as they should be."

The October 2011 Chicago Magazine showed the average sale price for the suburban homes around Chicago. Municipalities, like Palatine, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Lincolnshire, Lake Zurich, in Joe Walsh's former Congressional District all saw their 2011 housing value drop from 2010. Walsh did nothing while the savings of his erstwhile constituents plummeted. Well, he did blame Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the poor for the housing bubble.

However, here is the truth, Deregulation and Private Sector Banks not Fannie and Freddie caused the Housing Bubble:
During those same explosive three years [2004-2006], private investment banks — not Fannie and Freddie — dominated the mortgage loans that were packaged and sold into the secondary mortgage market. In 2005 and 2006, the private sector securitized almost two thirds of all U.S. mortgages, supplanting Fannie and Freddie, according to a number of specialty publications that track this data.
Barry Ritholtz has an excellent dissection of the Big Zombie Lie. But, the Republicans and Wall Street Thieves will never let go of the Big Zombie Lie and will never let the truth about the effects of their negligent deregulation schemes be spoken.

In March 2011 Joe Walsh and the other 235 Republicans in the US House voted unanimously to continue giving US Taxpayer dollars money to Multinational Oil Companies, while complaining about the budget and blaming President Obama

"You've spent money like a drunken sailor for 3 years," - Joe Walsh. Like most conservative Joe Walsh never spent a day in uniform. But, you know who did? 
R. V. Burgin, a famous Marine who fought at Peleliu and Okinawa, and who joined the US Post Office after the War in The Pacific.

One of the tasks Joe Walsh's rich masters assigned him was voting to destroy the USPS. "If the Postal Service can't compete in the marketplace," then Congressman Walsh shouted. "I am tired of propping it up!"

Of course, conservatives only support Veterans if that Vet recites the Ultra-Reactionary Conservative Agenda of Intolerance, Oppression and Adulation of the Rich. Any deviation and even cowards like Walsh feel safe insulting Veterans in front of their duped conservative drones, 
"I was marching in a parade in Schaumburg (IL), Sunday, two days before the Democratic convention, when Tammy Duckworth was on a stage down in Charlotte (NC) — if you can look at the picture — picking out a dress for her speech Tuesday night.”
But, Joe Walsh outdid himself by going on a screaming red-faced tirade at Melissa Rakestraw, an Illinois resident and Postal worker, who dared to ask him questions. In response, Walsh screamed, "DON'T blame the Banks! I am tired of hearing that crap!" The "crap" being the truth about how the Banks and Wall Street collapsed the US housing market and turned the US economy into a giant gambling ring.

After video of the ignorant puerile Walsh came to light, Rakestraw told interviewers, "[E]arlier I had told him if he supports Darrell Issa‘s bill to reform the Post Office that 200,000 jobs could be lost. 20% of those employees are veterans. Mr. Walsh came up to me and said, ‘I do not care about the loss of public sector jobs.’"

President Obama still cleaning up Dick Cheney's Colossal Blunder(s)

One would be hard pressed to find a single Man responsible for more pain and damage to the American People and the Nation than Dick Cheney; Tojo and Robert E. Lee come to mind.

Cheney and his daughter whose only credentials are she's ridden Dick to further her political career and of being 1/5th of Dick's Deferments wrote an Op-ed in the Wall Street Journal which is a case study in projection and holds the key to the entire Conservative Mindset.
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. 
This one sentence encapsulates the entire pathological evil which drives the chicken hawk cowardly warmonger criminals who infest the Republican Party. Republicans are everything they claim they hate and are the antithesis of everything they claim to support.
"In the last five years America has receded from leadership in the world. And into that vacuum has stpeed Nations like Iran, like Russia, like China. As we abandoned our allies the consequences has been to make the world a much less safer place."
Chicken Hawk Senator Ted Cruz, proposes what exactly? The US military should have invaded Russia to defend Crimea? Does Senator Croooze think we should station soldiers on micro-islands in the South China Sea? Does he propose we back the Sunni Insurgents agains the Iranian back Maliki Government? Ted Cruz is an unserious boob who wishes he could have voted for the AUMF in 2002 because that's when brave tough REMF could tell libtards to suck on this.

The Bush/Cheney Crusade in Iraq has resulted only in the destabilizing of the region. Everything which has happened in Iraq, happened because of deliberate lies and ignorant fantasies, from W(orst POTUS Ever) and his staff of NeoCon war criminal buffoons stated Casus Belli (Smoking Gun=Mushroom Cloud, Saddam's connection to Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden), the ever rotating reason for remaining, all the lies of progress we were making, all the fallout, the loss of American lives, the destruction of thousands of families, a million dead Iraqis and $5 Trillion stolen.

Of course, as Dick Cheney would say, "So?"

President Obama announced today that the US would be providing 300 advisors and established JOC (Joint Operation Centers) in Baghdad and Northern Iraq. Additionally, surveillance elements would be dispatched and re-tasked to provide US additional intel on the situation involving the ISIL/ISIS.

The President also declared he would make Congress take the lead in determining a further course of action. Congress, of course, wants nothing to do with Iraq and will demagogue hoping President Obama will choose an official course of action which, either way they can attack as wrong.

The Bush/Cheney Crusade was naught but a massive list of monstrous crimes against Humanity which continue to this day.

The Nations of Iran and Turkey now must turn a large amount of their attention and resources towards containing the violence unleashed by Cheney's Evil.

The continuing Civil War in Syria will create a stable of potential fighters. Additionally, thousands of displaced innocent people are in a humanitarian crisis.

If the Kurdish People begin a push for an independent state, the Turks and the Persians aren't just going to let the areas of their countries slip away. As late as the 1990's the Turkish Government made the Kurdish language, Kurdish names and Kurdish newspapers and radio illegal.

In Iraq, families haven't yet recovered from Bush's War of Lies and now they face a tripartite Civil War, which will eventually end a mess of semi-functioning states. So, the Middle East will be a cauldron of Death and Mayhem. All thanks to the despicable evil humanoid creature Dick Cheney.

Thom Hartmann wrote a better take down of the War Criminal Cheney,
He lied his way into an illegal war, profited off that war, and shredded the Constitution. He's a war criminal and has the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent people on his hands. 
Dick Cheney should be rotting in a prison cell at The Hague, not writing editorials for the Wall Street Journal.

Benghazi is a distraction from Iraq which is a distraction from Benghazi which is a distraction from...

Yesterday, President Obama announced that the Ringleader of the Benghazi attacks Ahmed Abu Khatallah has been captured. Here is President Obama's written statement;
The United States has an unwavering commitment to bring to justice those responsible for harming Americans. Since the deadly attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, I have made it a priority to find and bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of four brave Americans. I recently authorized an operation in Libya to detain an individual charged for his role in these attacks, Ahmed Abu Khatallah. The fact that he is now in U.S. custody is a testament to the painstaking efforts of our military, law enforcement, and intelligence personnel. Because of their courage and professionalism, this individual will now face the full weight of the American justice system.
Even as we welcome the success of this operation, we also pause to remember the four Americans who gave their lives in Benghazi representing their country: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty. As I said shortly after the attack, they exemplified the values that we stand for as a nation, including a commitment to freedom and justice. All Americans should be grateful for their service, just as we are grateful to all our personnel – civilian and military – who represent our country around the globe. We will continue to honor our fallen by carrying on their efforts in support of the Libyan people’s aspirations to live in a peaceful, prosperous, and democratic society.
With this operation, the United States has once again demonstrated that we will do whatever it takes to see that justice is done when people harm Americans. We will continue our efforts to bring to justice those who were responsible for the Benghazi attacks. We will remain vigilant against all acts of terrorism, and we will continue to prioritize the protection of our service-members and civilians overseas. We will also sustain our support for the Libyan people, as they work to overcome years of tyranny and do the difficult work of building a democracy.
Once again the President has shown himself to be a great man amongst the vile villains and despicable dilettantes who circle around the cesspool of Washington DC.

Of course, Faux News wasted no time in proclaiming this a distraction or conspiracy. Right-Wingers and Republicans sputtered, pouted, bitched and moaned about the declaration from President Obama.

Being shameless disgusting enemies of America, the Republicans found the actions by the Department of Justice, FBI and Special Forces too convenient, the timing too perfect.

Of course, what they are complaining about is the destruction of their Fake Scandals. Ahmed Abu Khatallah, has stated the attack was in response to the stupidly inflammatory Innocence of Muslims youtube video, as was believed by the CIA at the time and stated by the vilified Susan Rice.

His capture and that statement alone have deflated over a year and a half's worth of lying demagoguery. As the Republicans and conservatives have been building a grand narrative upon the bodies of the 4 dead in Benghazi. Fours Americans whose names they can never remember but, upon whose corpses thousands of right-wingers have constructed an edifice of lies and innuendo, which they fervently hoped and prayed would lead to Impeachment.

Now, Republicans are reduced to pathetic mewling curs, sending out tantrum tweets. Waaaah! The Republicans tweeted! Waaaah! We still have a wholly bullshit Trey Gowdy led Benghazi Panel working! Waaaah! This arrest will undermine all the undermining of the President we've done! Waaaaaah!

Many years ago the mewling punk ass bitch Republicans embarked on a quest to blame all their evil actions upon President Obama. They wanted the Presidency back in order to continue their Agenda to impoverish Americans and Subjugate the Nation to the Will of the Plutocracy

Now, matter what the question or incident, Conservatives would declare it a scandal and throw a tantrum. Republicans and Conservatives believed that if they flung enough shit and shut down the government enough times, everyday Americans who are working harder and longer to try an reach the American Dream and don't have time to uncover all the Right-Wing lies and bullshit, would just throw up their hands and let the Republicans have the Presidency as happened in 2000.

Fortunately, unlike in 2000 when Republicans were allowed to steal the Presidency, and the Nation and entire world were cursed with the evil ineptitude of the George W(orst President Ever) Regime, which resulted in thousands of Americans dead and wounded in the worst attack on American soil in the Nation's History, thousands of Americans dead and tens of thousands wounded in Iraq, $5 Trillion dollars of tax payer dollars wasted and stolen, and the impoverishment of millions of Americans at home during the Republican Recession and Bush housing bubble.

Thankfully a man of honor, Barack Obama, is in the White House now and the Nation's enemies both foreign and domestic hate him.

Enemy of America, and a man who has done more damage to the United States save for Tojo or Robert E. Lee, Dick-Less Cheney is back trying to pin the blame for his epic failures in Iraq and the United States. I'll link to the BradBlog who has excerpts fro Cheney's Wall Street Journal fact-free missive.

The Rich, their Republican Drones and Conservative Chicken Hawks want a New War in Iraq

"Tragically, all we’ve fought for in Iraq, all that 4,500 American lives were shed to gain, is on the cusp, potentially, of vanishing." Mitt Romney 6/13/2014
The Big Loser Romney likes to talk all about War and Sacrifice but, those are for other Americans. Profiting off of the Iraq War that's what Romney and his ilk know.

Via Crooks and Liars comes a demand for More War in Iraq by Tyler Cowan, Chairman and General Director of the Koch-financed Mercatus Center, in order that the Koch Brothers and other Plutocrats may profit.
An additional explanation of slow growth is now receiving attention, however. It is the persistence and expectation of peace.
The world just hasn’t had that much warfare lately, at least not by historical standards. Some of the recent headlines about Iraq or South Sudan make our world sound like a very bloody place, but today’s casualties pale in light of the tens of millions of people killed in the two world wars in the first half of the 20th century. Even the Vietnam War had many more deaths than any recent war involving an affluent country.
Counterintuitive though it may sound, the greater peacefulness of the world may make the attainment of higher rates of economic growth less urgent and thus less likely. Rather, the very possibility of war focuses the attention of governments on getting some basic decisions right — whether investing in science or simply liberalizing the economy. Such focus ends up improving a nation’s longer-run prospects.
War is the Health of the State, especially when the Rich run the Government and profit mightily when the Poor are sent of to die. As Cowan points out it's just the poor dying so he doesn't care.

So, Mitt Romney continued at his at his Utah gathering, "I lost the election, but I will continue to fight." Now you have to understand that when Romney talks about fighting he doesn't mean himself or his sons. It means other, less Rich Americans.
  • Mitt protested in favor of the War in Vietnam and the Draft, "served" Overseas in Paris, France instead of French Indochina. 
His five sons obviously inherited Romney's tough guy, We like to Talk the Talk but, we won't Walk the Walk,
"You know, I, ah, wanted to rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him. But you know you can’t do that because, well, first there’s a lot of secret service agents between you and him…" - Tagg Romney, talked about wanting to Punch the President at the second debate in 2012.
Listening to the Romney's is like watching a beer muscle guy at the bar tell his friends to hold him back. He isn't going to fight but he sure wants to appear tough and strong! Tagg is a chicken hawk coward. Just like his father before him and just like his younger brothers,
    • Combined Days of Military Service for Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben, and Craig Romney = 0
    The 5 Romney "Boys" were born between 1970 and 1981. When their father is added in they have a combined total of Zero Days of Military Service. When asked in 2008 why his sons weren't serving in the military, Mitt stated his dandified sons were too important,
    "One of the ways my sons are showing support for this nation is by trying to get me elected. Because they think I'll make a great President." 
    Republicans and Conservatives are by and large Chicken Hawks. They will gladly pontificate about the necessity of War while seated on their expansive posteriors, but when it comes to taking the Oath and putting their ass in Danger? Well that's for other people.
    Chris Matthews: "Would you like to enlist in this war [Iraq]?"
    Jason Mattera: "No."
    Matthews: "What kind of people should fight in this war, if not you?"
    Mattera: "Those who want to."
    See, as Mattera explains in the above linked video, the modern young conservatives are, "Fighting the War for Ideas". The Idea being that other Americans need to die to advance the Right-Wing Agenda of Oppression and Domination by the Rich.

    But, it's clear why right-wingers are pushing for a new Iraq War. They will again make Big Money off of Death and Destruction.

    George W(orst POTUS Ever) Bush used the Iraq War to funnel Trillions of dollars into the Bank Accounts of the Plutocracy, the super rich and Corporations. His base as he called them. It's another part of the Monstrous Crimes Bush perpetrated which we've lost sight of in recent years and which the American people need to be reminded about. W(orst POTUS Ever), his Republican Guard Dogs, right-wing drones and conservative chicken hawks engaged in a War Crime similar to the Genocide of Native Americans.

    Now, President Obama has deployed 170 forces into Baghdad to support the US Embassy, in the old Green Zone. There are an additional 100 waiting in reserve. And apparently there was discussion of inserting Special Forces Operators into the New Iraqi Army to provide support and bolster their flagging morale. Sadly, this has the smell of advisors all over it.

    Of course, I'm glad he did it before Republicans Benghazi'ed the President again. For you see Republicans have this nasty habit of undermining the Troops and underfunding security for Agencies and then blaming the President for their despicable misdeeds.

    Nonetheless, all across the Conservative Sunday Morning Talk circuit, the Old Architects of the Iraq Debacle were trotted out yet again. Yet again we must watch as the Republican Party Drones and their Conservative Chicken Hawks are allowed to lie about Iraq.

    Back to Iraq! Although Conservatives won't be going because they are Cowards

    What Bush and the Republicans have done to the Economy, Veterans, and in Iraq are some of the Worst Crimes in US History. We've lost sight of that as the Conservative Media has made it their mission to gin up false scandals.

    Thanks to the Lies and War Crimes of George W(orst POTUS Ever) Bush, Dick Deferment Cheney, Donald Rumsfled, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, David Addington, John Yoo, Ari Fleschier, Dana Perino, Douglas Feith, Alberto Gonzales and so many others, The Middle East is now a cesspool of violence, destabilized Nations, with ethnic and religious violence exploding all across the region.

    Now, the same warmongering war criminals who have done so much harm to the United States and the Middle East are clamoring for the military to be sent back into Iraq.

    One good thing about sending the military back into Iraq is America will once again get to witness the spectacle of Cowardly Chicken Hawk Conservatives pounding upon their jiggily man-boobs while not enlisting and not going into the Combat Zone.

    American Conservatives are biggest group of chicken shit cowards ever assembled in the history of humanity.

    The current generation learned from Dick Cheney, Dick Armey, Karl Rove, John Ashcroft, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Tom Delay and so many others it was better to "fight" at home than to fight over there.

    Conservatives love sending braver men into combat because with those men removed from the US conservatives finally have a chance at getting sex. Of course, women naturally eschew sleeping with Right-Wingers which is why Rape-publicans are always thinking and talking about Rape. Without Rape Right-Wingers would never have sex.

    Call it Right-Wing Darwinism, the survival of the shittiest.

    There's already a Generation of Conservatives tempered by their avoidance of Fire. Which was spectacularly captured by Max Blumenthal in Generation: Chickenhawk.

    Ben Shapiro, Ben Ferguson, Jonah Goldberg, Jason Mattera, Matthew Continetti, Erick Erickson, James O'Keefe and so many other Young Conservatives and Tea Party Terrorists decided their talents were better suited in the rear than on the Tip of the Spear. Because conservatives are cowards.

    So, if your blaming President Obama let's see your DD-214 (overseas days) and invite me to your local MEPS so I can watch you take the oath of enlistment.

    But, now the Conservative Media is champing at the bit to get all the lying NeoCons, Ari Fleischer, Bill Kristol, Thomas Friedman, Charles Krauthammer, Judith Miller back on the air to talk about what a glorious success Iraq was until That One got into the White House and ruined everything.

    So, don't worry the Conservative Media and the Republican Party will spend the precious little time not devoted to Benghazi/Bergdahl, pounding home the narrative that W(orst POTUS Ever) planted the Tree of Jeffersonian Democracy in Iraq only to have it pulled out by the roots by that Kenyan Marxist Traitor in the White House.

    Iraq: W Built This! George W. Bush is the Worst President in US History

    "I'm the commander – see, I don't need to explain – I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the president. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation." - Bush at War, Bob Woodward
    11 years after Mission Accomplished and Iraq is about to fall to Muslim Extremist Insurgents. Reports are that Mosul and Tikrit have fallen to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) who "defeated" the American trained Iraqi Army despite facing 40:1 Odds Against. The ISIS states they plan to march on Baghdad and conquer the Country. the Maliki Government has requested drones and air support from the US. A request the Obama Administration has refused, thus far.

    George W. Bush is the Now Officially the Worst President in American History. Even surpassing that arch-villain Ronald W. Reagan.

    Bush, Cheney and Conservatives had been declaring the Iraq War a Victory for years. Besides the Eternal Progress we always seemed to be making, the Iraq War was declared over and over and over;
    "We will be greeted as liberators." - March 16, 2003. 
    "And we're making progress. There's tangible, visible progress on the ground there in Iraq," - April 24, 2003 
    "Major Combat Operations in Iraq have ended." - May 1, 2003 
    "Bring'em On!" - July 2, 2003 
    "We're making progress, you bet," - April 30, 2004
    "We're making progress. Yet there still is much work to do," - May 24, 2004 
    "They're in the Last Throes," - June 20, 2005  
    "Is the sacrifice worth it? It is worth it and it is vital to the security of our country," - June 29, 2005
    "And we're making progress training the Iraqis. Oh, I know it's hard for some Americans to see that progress, but we are making progress," - August 11, 2005 
    Saddam's Death - December 30, 2006 
    We won. The Iraq War is over. I declare November 22, 2008 to be "Victory in Iraq Day." (Hereafter known as "VI Day.") - Zomblog, Zombietimes
    "See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." - George W. Bush, May 24, 2005.
    Everything about the George W. Bush Administration has been a total failure. The Worst Terrorist Attack in History occurred under his watch and he couldn't be bothered to think about the mastermind responsible.

    Bush and his Regime turned a blind eye to thousands of EPA violations, which we've seen result untold damage to the Country in the Gulf, in North Carolina, in the Great Lakes, in West Texas.

    The economy is still in a shambles from the Republican Recession, the Trillions of Dollars wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan and the Billions stolen by the obscene Bush Tax Cuts.

    Under Bush and Cheney the top 0.1% got a tax cut of $520,000, 450 times what the middle income taxpayer received. The bottom 20% of Americans only got 1% of the tax cut, a $300 dollars Department of Treasury check. The tax cuts were sold as a way to bring in middle class jobs and rising middle class wages.

    Koch Industries and the Exxon/Mobil 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 was a deliberate lie to sell the tax cuts to the middle class as a job creator and deficit reducer. None of these claims came true because the Plutocracy and their Think Tanks knew they were lies. What did occur was a massive transfer of wealth upwards to the Plutocracy, which were the true goals of the Bush Tax Cuts and part of the Republican plan all along. 

    Bush and the Republicans Wars are still costing the Nation. Thousands of American Veterans suffer from PTSD, many of them resort to taking their life, because the Republican Party doesn't care about broken soldiers and hasn't cared since they started the Wars. In total a Million Veterans may require a lifetime of coverage and support which Bush never intended to provide them with and the Republican  Party continually votes against providing.

    Torture, the Bush TARP, a Bankers wet dream, wherein another Trillion in American taxpayer funds was grotesquely funneled directly to aid the Rich as a last Bushian Fuck You to the people.

    But, you'll be hard pressed to find a conservative who voted for Bush nowadays. They are rarer than Hen's Teeth.

    And now, the coup de'grace, the failure of George W(orst President Ever) Bush's Reverse Domino Theory in Iraq.
    Two senior Iraqi politicians told Western intelligence that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction on the eve of the 2003 invasion – but their warnings were ignored and then not reported to the subsequent Butler inquiry, according to a major new investigation. 
    Vital intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq 10 years ago was based on "fabrication" and "wishful thinking", the BBC Panorama documentary claims. While information from highly placed Iraqis was dismissed as unimportant if it indicated that Hussein did not have WMD, tip offs from low-ranking Iraqis were eagerly lapped up if they reinforced what George W Bush and Tony Blair wanted to hear, it is claimed.
    Hundreds of Thousands dead and at least $5 Trillion lost on the Iraq Debacle based on "intelligence" Tony Blair and MI6 and George W(orst President Ever) Bush and the CIA knew was fabricated while dissenting intelligence was ignored.

    John McCain (and others) are pushing the We Won Iraq until That One lost it.
    "What about the fact that we had it Won? The fact is we had the conflict won, and we had a stable government, and a residual force such as we have left behind ... but the president wanted out and now we are paying a very heavy price."
    Sure, a perpetual "stablizing force" suffering the daily death of one or more military members. The expenditure of Billions of Dollars a day, most of it swindled by the American Plutocracy and shuffled of into Cayman Islands Bank accounts. That is what McCain wanted. That is what the Republican Party wanted.

    The Republican Party in all its' iterations is the most despicable collection of scum ever assembled. They and their mindless conservative drones won't be happy until we are all ground down into nothing and the Democratic Republic is obliterated.

    Conservatives and Guns have turned the US into a Failed State.

    Another day another shooting. Another weekend in Chicago another dozen shot.

    The shooting at Reynolds High School east of Portland, Oregon is the 74th school shooting since the Massacre at Sandy Hook in Newton. The problem is the proliferation of guns.

    Guns. Guns. Guns.

    Of course, besides flooding the Nation with hundreds of millions of firearms the other issue equally to blame for the Gun Violence is the existence Right-Wing Tea Party ideology which creates thousands of conservative drones ready to conduct Domestic Terrorist attacks over the faux scandals of Umbrella-Gate, the rescuing of an American POW, or when Alex Jones proclaims every shooting is a False Flag.

    Everything else is a secondary issue. Without the guns, we would not be losing 30,000 Americans with another 100,000 a year at least wounded by gunfire. Of course, we'll never how many people are wounded each and every year by gun humping fanatics because the NRA and Republican Party will fight every effort to stop Gun Violence.

    This is something you expect in an African Nation which having just thrown off the shackles of Western Imperialism, became embroiled in a Civil War, then a Military Junta followed by a Communist Revolution and then a Right-Wing coup d'état.

    Not here. Not in the USA; the Beacon of Freedom, the Shining City on a Hill, the World's so-called Greatest Democratic Republic.

    Right-Wingers and Republicans always proclaim every one of these Conservative Domestic Terrorist attacks are actually done by Leftists and registered Democrats.

    And why wouldn't lying Republicans claim this? The Media won't call them out for their lies. The American Right has a strong fascist streak.
    "Here are the 3 rules of Fascism; Make Shit up, Scream it Loudly, and then Kill People." - Eddie Izzard, Chicago Theater 06/09/14.
    But, consider what the NRA and conservatives have embraced as the cause and solution. Mental Illness and a Federal Database to catalogue those suffering from it.

    Apparently within the epistemically closed right-wing fart bubble they are unaware of how committal was used in the past as a weapon. Today's involuntary committal forms have several declarations that must be signed by the complainant. They affirm the complainant has no legal case against the person to be committed, there is no pending financial dispute and state the nature of their relationship.

    Now, as a corollary, Conservatives claim Liberalism is a mental disease.

    So, the question is based on these right-wing claims about Liberalism and the political ideology of mass shooters would the NRA and conservative gun humpers support confiscating all guns owned by registered Democrats and self-proclaimed Liberals?

    Because US Congressmen are paralyzed or complicit. State Governments have Tea Party madmen increasing the availability of Guns and engaging in murderous schemes granting every right-wing domestic terrorist the ability to carry weapons anywhere while adopting vague laws which ensure every confrontation will descend into gun fights.

    The Republican Party, their conservative drones and Tea Party Domestic Terrorists have done their job. They've sundered the Nation.

    Las Vegas "This is the start of a Revolution"; Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism in full effect (Updated)

    View image on Twitter
    Our picture of Jerad Miller guarding the road into Bundy Ranch in mid-April:
    The Right-Wing Revolution to overthrow the Government of the United States has progressed beyond a coup d'état by the 300 Republicans in the federal government and into a shooting war where Conservative Domestic Terrorists are gunning down Law Enforcement Officers.

    Conservatives will not be satisfied until they undo the Will of the American People and enforce their evil through the barrel of a gun.

    Conservatism is Terrorism.

    Two Bundyists ambushed and murdered two Las Vegas Police Officers then absconded to a Wal-Mart where they killed another person before taking their own lives.

    Dean Heller, the US Republican Senator from Nevada, gave his full support to these two and hundreds more Bundyists conservative terrorists in their showdown with the BLM, emboldening them to murder to Las Vegas Police Officers. "What Senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Senator Dean Heller (R). 

    The Republican Party fully supports the efforts of Conservative Domestic Terrorists because of the political power it grants them.

    The Bundy Ranch Affair proved what everyone in the US Government knew in 2009. Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists pose a serious threat to the American People and Government employees.

    The male half of the two killers often posted on Alex Jones Infowars, asking the question, 'The Police (To Kill or Not to Kill)'. Little Green Footballs has an early collection of information gathered on this particular Right-Wing Terrorist. (Alex Jones, of course, has proclaimed that these Domestic Terrorists are an MK-ULTRA fueled false-flag government conspiracy unleashed by Senator Harry Reid.)

    The Las Vegas Conservative Terrorist Attack came on the heels and overshadowed another one.

    In Georgia, a Sovereign Citizen decided to take control of a Georgia Courthouse to kill as many government workers as possible, take hostages and effect political change with his massive armory.

    Of course, this Sovereign Citizen can be dismissed because his last name was MARX, and as every conservative domestic terrorist can tell you, 'the Nazis were named National Socialists therefore they are Socialists, duh liberals!'

    So Marx was ipso facto a Marxist in the same way that the Chicago Bears Football team is made up of actual Grizzlies and Pandas.

    It's bad enough LEOs have to worry about criminal scum buckets, but conservative terrorists are a bigger threat because they have the complete backing of the Republican Party and various well-funded, politically connected Terrorists Organizations like the Roger Ailes Fox News Corp, Wayne LaPierre's NRA and Tony Perkin's Family Research Council.

    And no matter the attack Alex Jones or Wayne LaPierre will blame the Government. As when the NRA paraded a Navy SEAL out to make a propaganda video which... claims calling the Murderous Shooting Rampages, "shootings" is the real propaganda.

    The Gun Humping Fanatics are rapidly turning our Country into a Failed State. The III Percenters, Open Carry Texas, Oathbreakers, the Cliven Bundyists all fit the classic definition of terrorists; Someone who seeks to effect political change with Violence or the Threat of Violence.

    Nonetheless, what conservatives and their Republican backers understand is their implicit threat of violence (Molon Labe) is not getting them the Government Power they crave fast enough so they have moved on to Murder.

    Bradblog has an interview of Daryl Johnson, author of the 2009 DHS report on Rightwing Extremism, by Brian Levin in 2011.

    What we have in the US is a systematic turning of a blind eye towards Conservative Extremism. The Media doesn't want to cover it for fear of being labeled Liberal. So they go out of their way to minimize coverage. Additionally, when a Rightwing Domestic Terrorist Organization like the Tea Party or III Percenters or Oathbreakers, begins a disinformation campaign to proclaim some Shooter who was clearly inspired by Right-Wing Rhetoric is actually a Leftist. The Media dutifully covers that angle because it has to ensure both sides of the issue are covered.

    Update 2:
    The Internet's dumbest man, but most prodigious propagandist, Jim Hoft has declared the Las Vegas  Domestic Terrorists are Leftist Neo-Nazis and the comments are stunning.

    This is the continuing cycle of Right-Wing Violence.

    Who's worse? Karl Dönitz or Muhammad Fazl or Bowe Bergdahl? (Updated

    As the Bowe Bergdahl incident drags on, his hometown of Hailey Idaho was forced to cancel a Welcome Home Parade as Right-Wing extremists threatened violent domestic terrorist attacks in response.

    While, over at Faux News, conservative media gurus have organized former members of Bergdahl's platoon to smear him because, as I predicted Faux News is destroying Bergdahl as a way to attack President Obama.

    I will only note that Josh Korder, who said in an interview with CNN of Bowe Bergdahl, "He is at best a deserter, and at worst a traitor," received a General Discharge under other than Honorable conditions.

    In a trial, which is not what Dishonorable Conservative Media is engaged in, the character of a witness testifying against the accused is, of course relevant, as the Defense will try and impeach the testimony. However, that often leads to the smearing of the witness which I will not do against Korder.

    What's of more import is the nature of those released. Republicans and Right-Wing liars immediately took to labeling the 5 released from GITMO as the "hardest, toughest, meanest" and the "worst of the worst".

    Of course, conservative blow hards and bloggers couldn't be bothered to name their supposed crimes and couldn't even name the 5 released from Gitmo. Most likely, cause they all look alike to conservative racists.

    Eventually, right-wingers were forced to reference NPR, New York Times publication of DoD JTF Gitmo files and the UN reports.

    Muhammad Fazl was a military leader under the Taliban and was also a refugee from the Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan. I wonder if he received any CIA training in Pakistan to fight the Soviets in the 1980s... He surrendered in November 2001!

    Khirullah Said Wali Khairkhwa is a friend of Hamid Karzi, who was arrested in Pakistan in January 2002...

    Norullah Noori claims to have joined the Taliban in the late 90's then went to Mazer-i-Sharif to work as a bureaucrat and eventually "Governor" and surrendered in November 2001.

    Mohammad Nabi trained in Pakistan (hmmm with whom again) and fought against the Soviets with the mujahaddein was arrested in September 2002.

    Abdul Haq Wasiq a religious student in the 1980s he was a member of Taliban "Intelligence Directorate" and was captured in November 2001!

    For over a dozen years they have languished in Guantanamo. Sure, they were members of the Taliban but, the Taliban was the Government of Afghanistan from 1996-2001.

    Anything they knew of intelligence value expired 10 years ago. They didn't participate in the insurgency. It's despicable the level of active ignorance and violent stupidity on display by dishonorable conservatives.

    Now, as right-wingers are pig ignorant morons I can't expect them to know the name Karl Dönitz. He was the last Head of State for Nazi Germany. Hitler named Dönitz his successor as Head of State prior to his suicide. Previously, Dönitz was the Admiral in charge of U-Boats at the start of WW2 and then Grand Admiral of the Kriegsmarine. 

    After the war he was tried at Nuremburg and spent 10 years in prison. The last ruler of Nazi Germany spent less time in prison then the 5 at Gitmo...

    But, none of this matters to shameless dishonorable conservatives. Because they are the drones of the Republican Party, remote control weapons sent to destroy the opponents of the Plutocracy.

    Oh look Right-Wingers have taken to lying about the men released. No More Mister Nice Blog found PJ Media Andrew McCarthy retweeting a photo which he identified as Muhammad Fazl even though it definitively is not.

    Meanwhile, retired Col. Morris Davis, former prosecutor at Guantanamo says the five are so inconsequential he doesn't even remember them. But, that doesn't matter to conservative liars.

    The Right-Wing Media resorts to lies because they know their conservative drone followers will absorb and re-emit their lies with unthinking certainty.

    Dishonorable Conservative Hypocrites piss on the Troops, Veterans and Bowe Bergdahl

    Dishonorable Conservatives, as natural cowards and chicken hawks, hate Service members. As such, if you're a veteran and you aren't a rabid unthinking proponent of the conservative beliefs of Hatred, Oppression, Intolerance and Adulation of the Rich they will piss on you. Doesn't matter if you are Pat Tillman or Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth or a Marine Veteran in Texas on Memorial Day or Bowe Bergdahl.

    Once President Obama secured the release of Bowe Bergdahl the furious right-wing efforts to turn the fulfillment of America's sacred duty to her military members into a scandal erupted.

    Of course, as Right-Wing hypocrisy knows no bounds, dishonorable conservatives were forced to delete and scrub their sites of pro-Bergdahl solidarity.

    Over at Gawker, Adam Weinstein has a collection of tweets from conservatives who condemned President Obama, praised Bergdahl and agitated for his return until it was accomplished then they condemned President Obama, damned Bergdahl and agitated against his return.

    Right-Wing powerblogger Jim Hoft, the thrice-awarded dumbest man on the internet, declared in October 2013, Horrible. Obama to leave POW to rot in Afghanistan after Withdrawal.

    Bridgett Johnson of Pajamas Media, a "leading" Right-Wing disseminator of lies, back in Jan 2014 championed Bring POW Bergdahl Back by any means.

    But that was Then, this is Now.

    No More Mister Nice Guy has a Bergdahl Hypocrite Hall of Fame post highlighting how quickly the incestuous Right-Wing internet fart bubble got on-board with angrily espousing deeply held beliefs which are in direct opposition to their supposedly deeply held beliefs regarding Bowe Bergdahl.

    But, it's not limited to everyday conservatives or "popular" right-wing bloggers.

    Former Congressman and Lt. Col Allen West wrote piece after piece about how President Obama abandoned Bowe Bergdahl on the battlefield.

    Republican Congressmen Lee Terry and Thad Cochran praised the return of Bergdahl until they learned it was anathema.

    Unfortunately, as conservatives are shameless, no matter how many times you show their blatant hypocrisy, no matter how many of their previous statements undermine their current positions, you will never be able to mollify or blunt their efforts to destroy America. Jon Stewart on The Daily Show has been highlighting and ridiculing conservatives for over a decade and all it's down is strengthen their resolve to be disgusting anti-American scumbags.

    I expect no less from Conservatives. They are the unthinking dishonorable drones of the Republican Party and by extension the Plutocracy. Conservatives piss on the military service of anyone who doesn't help them advance the Agenda of the Rich.

    So, when Bergdahl was a POW his continued imprisonment was a way for Conservatives to attack President Obama. Now his release merely affords them another opportunity to attack President Obama.

    Conservatives and Republicans don't see the Troops as people but as tokens for them to use to advance the Right-Wing Agenda to destroy the Democratic Republic and turn the Nation into a NeoFeudalist Wage Slave State owned and ruled by the 1%.

    As for poor Bowe Bergdahl, he's going to face a Court Martial and Faux News is going to ensure it is a spectacle because the Right-Wing will see it as a way to put President Obama on trial by proxy.

    Bowe Bergdahl's Freedom means President Obama's Impeachment (Updated)

    Republicans had been blocking efforts at freeing Bowe Bergdahl since 2010. Because Republican see the Military Servicemembers as little more than wooden chits on a RISK board which they are willing to let languish in terrorist's hands to advance their despicable agenda of Murder, Oppression, and theft of Trillions.
    Michael Tomasky over at The Daily Beast believes Bergdahl will be used by Republicans to Impeach President Obama. I'm even tempted to say forget Benghazi—Bergdahl may well end up being the flimsy excuse for the impeachment hearings they’ve been dreaming of before all this is over.
    "Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,” House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon (R-Calif.) and the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, James M. Inhofe (Okla.), said in a joint statement.

    Congressman McKeon and Senator Inhofe accused President Obama of breaking the law releasing a statement Obama is required by law to notify Congress 30 days before any terrorists are transferred from the U.S. facility. They said Obama also is required to explain how the threat posed by such terrorists has been substantially mitigated.

    Thanks, Obama! Now Terrorists are going to kidnap Americans! Impeach President Obama Now! Put up or Shut up! Your new found love for the Rule of Law needs must result in Articles of Impeachment. Congressman McKeon swear out the Articles of Impeachment and bring them to the House Floor.

    The entire Conservative fart bubble blog-o-sphere stands behind you! Not only is President Obama's law breaking action criminal, he released 5 hardened terrorists (according to Right-Wing blogs who don't even know the names of the released) for Bowe Bergdahl, a POW* who is alleged to have been captured trying to desert and Faux News analyst Ralph Peters wished would be killed by the Taliban.

    The Conservative Strategy has been to throw as many lies, innuendos and fake scandals at the Obama Administration because they know that even if when they are refuted, proven false or ignored the sheer weight of their unrighteous indignation is enough to cause Real Americans to throw their hands up declare a curse on both your houses and ignore the political process.

    Which is what Republicans want; the less We, the People participate in elections and the political process the better it is for Republicans because when Americans vote in large numbers they vote against Republicans.

    Especially, when the American People see the disrespect and evil disregard the Republican Party has for the military. The only Veteran conservatives love is a Dead Veteran. The Republican Party hates Veterans and the military unless they espouse the conservative principles of Oppression, Intolerance and Adulation for the Rich. Republicans especially disrespect and hate Veterans involved in politics unless they are Ultra-Reactionaries like Allen West or Ollie North.

    And on the topic of Ollie North, the Republican Party is mad about the 5-to-1 trade because Saint Ronnie Raygun's policy was to trade military arms for hostages and use illegally obtained money to fund Reagan's Pro-Terrorist Policy outside of Congressional controls.
    The way the first arms-for-hostages deal was designed, Israel would sell US-made weapons to Iran, and the US Government would replace Israel's weapons from its own stocks. As a favor to us, Israel was allowing itself to be used as a pass-through for America sending missiles to Iran. It was a shame the first arms shipment of ninety-six TOW antitank missiles to Iran ended up (and this was truly unfortunate, everybody agreed) in the hands of Khomeini's Revolutionary Guard. Worse, no hostage was released. It turned out to be arms-for-no-hostages. 
    In spite of Reagan's high hopes, the second weapons delivery of more TOW missiles, also via Israel, shook loose only one hostage, and not the one [national security advisor Bud] McFarlane requested. 
    In planning the third shipment, eighteen Hawk antiaircraft missiles, Reagan's operatives managed to piss off Portugal, endanger Turkey, get the CIA illegally involved, raise protests from the Defense Department, and move Secretary of State George Schultz to think about resigning... and all for nothing. 
    Nearly six months and millions of dollars of weapons into the arms-for-hostages deal, Reagan had yet to inform Congress about the status or existence of the operation. (Drift Rachel Maddow pg. 103-104)
