    Politics: The DNC's chairwoman, a champion of Occupy Wall Street, once again associates the tragedy in Tucson with an end to civil discourse caused by the grass-roots Tea Party movement. Has she no shame? There she goes again. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla, head of the Democratic National Committee and the "Debbie Downer" of American politics, has repeated the canard that somehow the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., a year ago at a Tucson event is somehow linked to hatred spawned by the Tea Party. "We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of...

    Yesterday I went to a SEIU protest oustide of the Padre Hotel in Bakersfield, CA. Inside, Meg Whitman, who is running for Governor of California against Jerry Brown, was having a fundraiser. The SEIU was out in full force handing out bullet points for when their members talked to the press, intimidating people who were attending the fundraiser, as well as customers of the Padre Hotel. ... A man leaving the Padre Hotel was confronted and accused of being a racist as he tried to get in his car. Before he got in his car, a protester actually said, "Yeah,...

    Power: Show Me State voters overwhelmingly rejected the federal mandate to buy health insurance. Those who ignored the consent of the governed to pass ObamaCare take heed: The governed no longer consent. It is fitting that Missouri was the first state to hold a public referendum on ObamaCare, sending the notion that government can shred the Constitution to impose its will to a crushing defeat with three-quarters of the voters approving Proposition C. The measure would forbid the federal government from penalizing people who do not buy health insurance. A year ago, on Aug. 6, 2009, Kenneth Gladney, an African-American...

    Repeal: Some say trying to repeal ObamaCare is a futile dream once people get used to its benefits, such as covering kids with pre-existing conditions. Once before, government was slapped down. It can be done. Entitlements can be addictive, and it's certainly the purpose of this administration to make as many Americans as possible as dependent on government as possible. That's partly why a health care bill put student loans under the Department of Education. The government needed the revenues, but it also needed the power over yet another class of citizens. Unlike Medicare and Social Security, this nationalization of...

    Politics: As the grass-roots activists meet with the Republican National Committee, the New York Times takes a look at them, deciding they are bitter people clinging to their guns. Meanwhile, leading Democrats plot their destruction. No doubt the meeting between representatives of the Tea Party movement and RNC Chairman Michael Steele will be seen by uber-liberals as confirmation that the Tea Party movement is merely a franchise of the vast right-wing conspiracy. In fact, Steele was merely doing what the Democrats still refuse to do — listen to Americans frustrated by a government that ignores their wishes and dismisses their...

    Election 2010: The back-to-back Senate retirements of Byron Dorgan and Chris Dodd may be just the beginning. The people have seen the future of health care reform and found it doesn't work. Apres moi, le deluge. We don't know what the Mayan calendar says about 2010, but it's starting to look like the end of the world for Democratic electoral prospects. Americans who watched in shock as government tried to step between them and their doctors, may have the last laugh. The tea party isn't over until the angry mob votes. As rage grew over the attempt to nationalize one-sixth...

    During the Jim Moran Townhall, protestors were outside gathering to go in. A citizen reporter was being harassed by a local Police officer about his Obamacare sign. The exchange between the Officer and the citizen was about the sign, the officer asked him to take it down or he would be arrested. During the exchange, the citizen said "This is America!", in which the officer replied "It ain't anymore" Quite revealing.

    Don't like ObamaCare? Well, more than likely - you're suffering from some sort of psychological delusion according to Newsweek Senior Editor and self-declared psychiatrist Sharon Begley. Begley, in a piece posted on Newsweek's Web site on Aug. 25, theorized that the widespread opposition to President Barack Obama's health care reform is from any legitimate reason, but instead it exists mostly because people are not willing to go against their own beliefs, but have a desire to satisfy their need to think they're beliefs are right. Begley used the analogy that some people refused to dismiss a connection between Saddam Hussein...

    Not the first to go on the milk carton but the first to bail on her constituents — and it looks like she’ll have company. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, whose decision to duck town-hall forums surprised New Hampshire constituents who remember her pre-election town-hall antics, has decided to grace voters with her presence after all. However, she’s managed to schedule it at a time next Saturday when activists had planned to be elsewhere. Don’t worry about attending Rep. Paul Hodes’ forum, however. Granite Grok reports that Hodes is holing up in a union hall for his constituent outreach. Apparently, he feels...

    You know all those stories you’ve heard about how the Republicans and the Evil Insurance Companies are ginning up angry mobs to intimidate the good-hearted innocent Democratic lambs of Congress as they hold their town hall meetings? Every last one of them was built on a fabrication. Or, if you like, a big, fat lie. Think Progress, one of the Democratic Soros-blogs, carried a story earlier in the week in which it breathlessly revealed a secret memo described yesterday by the DNC as the “playbook of high-level Republican political operatives”. Except the guy who wrote the memo isn’t a high-level...

    The Left, exasperated by being thwarted both without and within, have taken to distortion, demonizing, and violence. Discussion not allowed. This is expected. Conservatives and small government types, have had it. The press has been in the business of painting those on the Right as psychotic, baby-killing, meanies. If you doubt the bias, tell me how many soldiers have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since President Obama took office. Yeah, suddenly body counts don't count. They don't fit the narrative. So of course, the press will lie about the protests. Nothing much new here. But it hasn't only been...

Now in the August recess, the “tea-bagger” protesters and right-wing activists are showing up in larger numbers with a mission to be as disruptive as possible in thehopes of rattling Members of Congress and halting health care reform through pure spectacle and obstruction.  Our response is shaped by 3 things:  Ø Our targets are Members of Congress who must vote...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent her chamber home for the summer recess with a list of talking points to respond to constituents' questions about pending health care legislation. But those traditionally sleepy town hall meetings have become rowdy shout-fests across the nation, including Northern California, with opponents hanging members in effigy and mocking them with Nazi and devil imagery in an effort to derail discussions of health care. They're organized in part by conservative think tanks like FreedomWorks, which offers tips on how to disrupt a meeting ("Watch for an opportunity to yell out and challenge the Rep's statements early,"...

    Democrats are accusing Republicans of organizing "angry mobs" to disrupt town hall meetings across the country, but conservatives say the protests are a sign of the opposition to President Obama's health care plans. The Democratic National Committee released a video Wednesday charging that Republican operatives "have no plan for moving our country forward, so they've called out the mob." The video shows footage of angry constituents at recent events and then flashes pictures of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader John Boehner, Republican National Chairman Michael Steele, and conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh on the screen.

  • The State Run Media Template: Tea Party Protests & Now Town Hall Protests Are "Orchestrated"

    The template from the SRM (State Run Media) now appears to be "it's all orchestrated." That is what they said about the Tea Party/Tax Day protests, and what they are now saying about the town hall protests. When conservatives have grass-roots level protests it's all "orchestrated." It's all orchestrated. Didn't you know that? Oh, by the way... if you don't support Obama's policies then you are a racist. Why? Because the SRM says that, too. And we all know that's good enough.
