We are witnessing the media’s test run to elect a Democrat in 2016
Legal Insurrection ^ | Wednesday, November 21, 2012 at 11:23am | William A. Jacobson

Can I call ‘em or what?

On Monday, I wrote regarding the question posed to Marco Rubio about when the Earth was created, The “crazy-ing” of Marco Rubio begins:

Marco Rubio is on the short list of Republican presidential contenders for 2016. Of course, that’s a long way away, so who knows if he remains on the short list.

So Rubio’s a target even more so than in the past couple of years. Every question in every interview is a potential land mine. There can be no off-the-cuff remarks.

The motus operandi will be to “crazy” him, the long-standing tactic used against Republicans and particularly people like Rubio who sprang from the Tea Party movement (something he doesn’t wear on his sleeve very much) or who occupy that most reviled place in the mainstream media, religious Christians.

Asking Rubio how old the earth is? Nothing but more “gotcha journalism”.

The communist MSM are on a crazy high from the election. They now think they can sway anything from now on. I have never seen a more lying bunch of bond scum as a see in the MSM. Some need jail time.

The solution to the problem is to acknowledge that the planet has been around longer than a couple thousand years. Why is this so difficult for some?

Run either Rubio and Allen West or Martinez and Allen West.

The best answer would be:

“I wasn’t there when it was created, so I don’t know.”

A poorly disguised way of asking if he is a creationist. The media have as their sworn duty to trash anyone who is or can be a threat to the established power.
Remember this. One of the media hos will bring it up again in 2016.
The same media hos that never asked the ONE about his deep and abiding love for the middle eastern cult.

for what he promised and didn’t deliver.

Beyond that, the media is comfortable with the indoctrination of people 40 and below. In response, the media has dropped any pretense of being unbiased. The media supports socialism in the way we used to support public education. It's just a given that it's good.

These are interesting times. All we can do is protect ourselves as best we can, and watch the unfolding transformation of the USA to a communist state.

The problem we have is that the stupid electorate won’t see who we are running because the MSM will cover the Democratic Convention 24-7 and won’t cover the Republican Party Convention at all.. They basically did that this year.. The MSM didn’t cover any of our speakers that meant anything they only showed Clint and Romney!!! That is why we really never got a bounce... The Republican Party needs to find a way so that the MSM wants to cover the Convention!!!

The Republicans/GOP/RNC need to start:

1) Calling the Democrats what they now are: SOCIALISTS (Why help the liberals hide behind their rosy label?)
2) Announce that EVERYONE in the Democrat party WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS regardless of their race, gender or LGBT status (NO MORE HIDING behind their race cards, gender cards, etc. to commit treason or illegal acts. FOR EXAMPLE: Susan Rice was complicit in an 0bama cover-up in Benghazi by promoting the LIE that Benghazi was a 'protest over a video' and not a terrorist attack. The Democrats responded that anyone accusing Rice of lying is "racist and sexist" because she is a black female. The Republicans need to IMMEDIATELY respond that "Susan Rice will be held accountable for her actions regardless of her race or gender. PERIOD!")
3) Call Democrats LIARS when they lie
4) Call Democrats TREASONOUS when engaging in treasonous activity such as funding Muslim Brotherhood, etc.
5) CALL THE MEDIA OUT!!!. Accuse the media of BIAS, LYING, COMPLICIT IN OBAMA'S COVER-UPS.. CALL THE MEDIA OUT AND BASH THEM FOR THEIR LIBERAL BIAS.
6) IMPEACH OBAMA for his laundry list of impeachable offenses, including INELIGIBILITY to be POTUS (his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth), F&F, bombing Libya without consent of Congress, illegal investments (Solyndra), recess appointments while Congress not in recess, Cover-Up over Benghazi, funding terrorist groups, refusing to enforce DOMA, violation of his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, etc, etc, ETC.)
7) DEMAND that the State of Hawaii offer 0bama's ORIGINAL birth records for Congress' review or ALL Federal funding to Hawaii will be immediately terminated.

Why not take the battle back to them in a more literal sense? If they drop the veil and become openly political operators, they need to face the liabilities of that new status as well. Why isn’t anyone planning to picket the MSM offices and studios? If they have become a de facto branch of the current government establishment, let them feel the same slings and arrows that government officials do. If I were a GOP candidate, I wouldn’t be playing nice. I’d be calling them out in front their offices. Why not, they hate Republicans anyway.

The left don't have to lower themselves to destroy the R candidate...the R's have no chance anyway.

.....deadbeat- American's numbers have finally gotten large enough that they can vote themselves "largess" from the public treasury....that has been predicted by many people over the last 2 or 3 hundred years.

If the political situation stays the same, the dead-beat class will only increase and NOBODY except a 'D' will be elected to a federal position. I bet in two years, the R House will switch to mostly D...since they are the ones who will deliver the most "stuff" to the dead-beat class.

It is truly a sad situation...the remedy is to find some way to keep the dead-beats from voting.

This of course, would not be welcomed by the left and would be right away branded as "voter suppression".

Maybe it is, but as long as we are shackled to the progressive income tax, then like Pres Zer0 says, everyone should "pay his fair share". It is terribly unfair that someone who pays a zero or a minus tax rate vote counts as much as a person who pays a tax rate of even 10%

Therefore, it should be required to prove a positive tax contribution before anyone's vote is valid.

"Communists". That's fine too.. All I know is, calling them 'Democrats' is a farce and actually plays right into their hands because it helps FOOL the American people. Time to get serious and stop the BS. This is war. And as Sun Tsu once said, "If you know both yourself and your enemy, you can win numerous battles without jeopardy."

'Democrats' have engaged in deception and are winning the war because of it. I wrote a thread here, AND A SERIOUS ONE, that calls for the House to pass a resolution simply stating that Democrats are Socialists (Okay, 'Communists' will work too). But a SERIOUS, G-DAMN SERIOUS plea that this 'Democrat' term either be publicly redefined or the label be changed all together.

Conservative radio/TV personalities should use the term 'Socialist/Communist' loosely and without reservation from here on out.

It is not going to make a difference. It won’t be covered by the MSM, and any other outlet is simply “preaching to the choir.”

Worse, modern “culture” doesn’t seem to have any problem with Communists and positively LIKES Socialists.

You do not find many people who do not understand that science can be proven, except for the terminally ignorant. Do you also dismiss gravity as an opinion?

When people here moan about the Left growing, one need look no further than those morons on the Right who don’t believe in science.

These are the folks who are the biggest problem facing the Right.

It is indisputable scientifically that virgins can't give birth without some sort of insemination. It is indisputable scientifically that dead people can't come back to life. But never mind. Those beliefs built "western civilization" so they're all right. Let's stick to picking on the people who live in trailer parks simply because no one will stick up for them.

“You do not find many people who do not understand that science can be proven, except for the terminally ignorant.”

Something being “proven”, in the parlance of science, and something being indisputable are two completely separate things. Nothing is indisputable in science, even if it has been proven. To say that something is indisputable is to remove it from the realm of scientific inquiry and place it in the category of dogmatic faith, which is just as unscientific as the behavior that you are decrying.

“Do you also dismiss gravity as an opinion?”

That’s a strange question, since it implies that I stated something else previously was an opinion, which I did not. For the record, I believe gravity is a phenomenon, not an opinion.

Funny. Always heard that Jesus was not exactly an ordinary human.

Is it your position that because of Jesus science is no more than a viewpoint? Do you believe that marrying your sister is no more likely to result in a damaged child?

Who cares where anyone lives. Stupid and wrong is still stupid and wrong.

Do you wish to return to a time where a church could imprison you for talking about science?

And if any are eager to condemn me for my beliefs about the age of the Earth and my pro-science leanings, I would say....Matthew 7:5!
