  • GOP’s Impeachment Gambit (Voter ID & talking about impeachment equals Jim Crow or worse)

    07/15/2014 12:44:02 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 6 replies
    Those who’ve found it difficult to connect with the racial history of post-Civil War America – when Black Americans were stripped of the citizenship rights they gained right after that conflict – should pay special attention to the national political arena now. Because the conservative movement, in its desperate mania to destroy Barack Obama’s presidency and neutralize the growing political clout of Americans of color, is dramatizing how that betrayal and the construction of a post-slavery racist society was accomplished. The tricked–up claims of “voter fraud” by state legislatures in order to deny Blacks access to the ballot box. Federal...
  • Rep. Brown: 4 Million Will Die in Florida Without Expansion of Health Care

    Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) says that over 4 million Florida residents will die if Medicaid is not expanded there. “In fact, we’ve got over 4 million people that need medical expansion of health care that we are sending back, that’s going to die because they’re not getting the quality health care that they need,” Brown said during Wednesday night’s Veteran’s Affairs Committee hearing. Brown was being critical of Gov. Rick Scott’s (R-Fla.) move to sue the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs for not allowing state hospital officials to inspect federal medical care facilities. …
  • Wall Street advisor: Actual unemployment is 37.2%, 'misery index' worst in 40 years

    Don't believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud. In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government. Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to...

    Saturday’s Wall Street Journal unveiled the smoking howitzer in the Obamacare “keep your plan” caper. In addition to proving that the White House and Obama deliberately and constantly lied about Americans’ ability to keep their health insurance, the Journal also found Senate Democrats’ fingerprints all over Obama’s weapon of mass deception. Colleen McCain Nelson, Peter Nicholas, and Carol E. Lee interviewed more than a dozen Obama advisers who helped to prepare Obamacare, pitch it to the American people, and pound it through Congress. Even these committed Obamites — including several in the White House — worried that Obama’s now-pulverized promise...

    Representatives from the Obama campaign tried to distance themselves on Wednesday from a new ad released by the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA that links actions taken by Bain Capital to the death of former steelworker Joe Soptic’s wife. Aboard Air Force One, campaign spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters that the campaign had “no involvement with any ads that are done by Priorities USA.” “We don’t have any knowledge of the story of the family,” Psaki said when asked about Soptic’s story. On CNN’s Early Start Wednesday morning, Obama for America Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter also denied that she...
  • Corporate cooties! DNC rebrands Bank of America Stadium as ‘Panthers Stadium’

    Now that the Democrats are gearing up to hold their September convention at the stadium, they can’t even bring themselves to type the words “Bank of America.” You know, because corporations are totally greedy, especially when they’re associated with the bankster one percent. For the record, Bank of America Stadium has never been called “Panthers Stadium.” Bank of America purchased naming rights in 2004, replacing L.M. Ericsson Inc. as the corporate (gasp!) sponsor. Prior to that, the facility was known as Carolinas Stadium. Yep, can’t have President Obama associated with an icky corporation when he delivers his keynote address at,...

    ]The 2012 outlook is improving modestly from a disappointing 2011. Economic growth picked up in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 2.8 percent and is expected to come in at 2.3 percent for 2012, up from 1.6 percent growth for all of last year, according to Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group. However, the year-end growth rate was due largely to a positive swing in business inventory growth, which is not indicative of underlying consumer demand or the overall health of the economy. Nevertheless, consumer spending improved modestly and manufacturing and services activity expanded at a strong pace....

    If Republicans want to know exactly what not to do to win in 2012, then follow advice similar to that offered by David Frum as to why Sarah Palin should “stop talking now” about the false accusations that she was responsible for the Tucson shooting:**snip**It does not matter whether you support Palin for President, whether you think she is electable, or even whether you like her. This is not about Palin, it is about the mainstream media’s desire to have Barack Obama re-elected at any cost and to take down any Republican candidate who stands in the way.

    24 years ago a new term was coined, “borking” or “to bork.” It is a tactic in which Democrats still revel, except when they feel they are on the receiving end at which point they cry foul. Borking is the complete politicization of the judicial nomination process, in which bad motives are imputed to purely legal positions. So if a judicial nominee believes that a particular issue is beyond the reach of the federal judiciary and properly for the political process, that nominee will have the worst motives imputed to him or her, including an imputed desire for bad results....

    employment in the USA is about 130 million which is 18% below where is should be just to maintain the same economic condition as in 2001. There are several reasons for this...including that the segment of America that is between the ages of 40 and 55 is decreasing (that population segment is the economic driver for the economy) while the number of those who are over 65 is increasing. The cause for this is because of the extremely low birth rate from 1970 to 1985...not because of aging baby boomers. The ramifications of this are low GDP growth, Social Security...

Huh? Fellow Republicans, let us be clear: The government has a whole lot to do with marriage. After all, we do not purchase marriage licenses at our local 7-11, but instead receive them from a government office -- and only after governmental officials have received the proper fees and documentation to certify the marriage. In fact, if we were to view a California License and Certificate of...

    The "sudden" drop in unemployment rates is simple labor department lying propaganda. It doesn't take a genius to add up the lies either. During this last December when there is normally an uptick in seasonal employement for the Christmas season there were still 85,000 more lay offs than new jobs (BLS stats). Then there is a NEW and recent revision of the jobs numbers to say they made a "mistake" in their calculations and there were almost a MILLION more lost jobs than they thought when the unemployment rate was 10%? Oh, and my favorite, this month there is a...

    The Great Health Care Debate of 2009 is underway on the Senate floor, and it took just a scant few minutes for the partisan skirmishing to begin in full force. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, wasted no time in laying a little legislative trap for Senator Michael B. Enzi, of Wyoming, who for the moment is piloting the Republican efforts on the Senate floor. Mr. Reid in an opening gambit asked for unanimous consent of all senators that any surpluses generated by the health care bill in the Social Security Trust Fund or in a new...

    Barack Obama left his 2.6 million fans on Twitter, the social networking website, bemused, disappointed and mildly irritated by admitting on Monday that he had never used the service himself. "Let me say that I have never used Twitter," he told students in Shanghai. "I noticed that young people are very busy with these electronics. My thumbs are too clumsy to type in things on the phone." During his election campaign, Mr Obama portrayed himself as "connected" to the people through Twitter and his ever-present blackberry phone. Some of his more understanding fans asked if it was any real surprise...

    Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year. The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said she had no recourse to stop the use of enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding after receiving a classified briefing from the CIA in 2002 - an explanation the top Republican on the House intelligence committee called "the lamest of lame excuses." As scrutiny over who knew what about the controversial tactics has turned back to Congress, Mrs. Pelosi sought to distance herself from revelations that she and other key Democrats were kept in the loop by the CIA between 2002 and 2006.

Wade, as the federal version of the bill did, which sailed through the U.S. Senate 98-0. Contrary to what Obama has said, forgotten records from the Illinois Senate archives show Obama did...

Hoagland criticized a new television campaign ad by Lampson (TX-22) that accuses opponent Pete Olsen of backing a plan that will increase the cost of food and other necessities of life. “Not true,” said Hoagland. “Left out of the ad, of course, is the fact that under...

It now stands at $247.7 billion - down from $520 billion in 2004. And it's continuing to drop. "These budget numbers are proof that pro-growth economic policies work," Bush said. You'd think that Democrats - they are patriotic Americans, after all - would revel in...

    Nine years ago, the Navy set out to build a new guided missile for its 21st-century ships. Fiascoes followed. In a test firing, the missile melted its on-board guidance system. "Incredibly," an Army review said, "the Navy ruled the test a success." Recently, the Navy rewrote the contract and put out another one, with little to show for the money it already spent. The bill has come to almost $400 million, five times the original budget. Such stories may seem old hat. But after years of failing to control cost overruns, the most powerful officials at the Pentagon are becoming...

    DETROIT — In an election already marred by provisional ballot challenges, numerous reports of voter discrimination from nonpartisan poll monitoring groups underline the possible flaws in the nation’s voting systems. Further impeding the voting process were accounts from student polling volunteers who said that ballot challengers were intimidating voters, signifying how fierce partisanship of the election permeated polling sites. Racial slurs from election workers, missing bilingual ballots and unwarranted demands to check voter identification turned away Asian American voters across the nation, according to reports by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. Learning from the lessons of the...
  • Fraudulent Calls---Represent Social Security

    11/01/2004 4:40:52 PM PST · by Happy Farmer · 5 replies · 153+ views
    Today, we have received two phone calls, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Someone who says they are representing Social Security and want to tell us about our benefits. Then they go into a spiel about how Bush will privatize Social Security, and John Kerry will see to it that it is available for all and no one will touch it. Isn't this a crime to represent a branch of government during a political campaign and endorse a particular candidate? Is there any limit how far the Democrats will go? Heaven help us.

    latestNEWS From Kris Kobach For Congress Campaign: With his campaign on the ropes, Dennis Moore pulled the dirtiest trick in the book. This week, he attempted to smear Kris Kobach's character by trying to connect him to "white supremacists". Dennis Moore sent out a false mailing to tens of thousands of female voters in the Third District. Even though this mailing was technically from the Kansas Democratic Party, make no mistake: Dennis Moore is behind this despicable attempt at character assassination. Last week, Dennis Moore issued two press releases with the exact same content as this mailing. More importantly, Dennis...
  • Draft unavoidable if Bush re-elected

    Daily Iowan ^ | Oct. 27, 2004 | SEN. TOM HARKIN
    President Bush may or may not have a secret plan to reinstate the draft. But this is beside the point. The deteriorating facts on the ground in Iraq, plus the Bush doctrine of acting pre-emptively and unilaterally against hostile regimes, will soon leave him no choice. If he is re-elected, he will have to restart the draft. We do not have enough people in uniform to meet current needs in Iraq and Afghanistan, much less to deal with a confrontation with Iran or North Korea. Morale is suffering. Enlistments and re-enlistments are down. The Army National Guard fell 10 percent...

    St. Louis (CNSNews.com) - Republicans had no sooner shot down rumors of a military draft when Democratic Party Chairman Terry McAuliffe warned a group of College Democrats on Friday that President Bush would call them up for duty if re-elected. "I know it's controversial to say it, but don't think for one second that if George Bush gets re-elected and we have another conflict in some other theater of the world, we're going to have to reinstitute the draft," McAuliffe said. "It is very controversial to say it, but it is what it is." McAuliffe spoke to about a hundred...
  • "Hussein" barb sparks controversy [NC Gov. Easley (D) compares his opponent to Hussein in debate]

    CARY, N.C. - Sparring over education, Gov. Mike Easley on Monday compared challenger Patrick Ballantine's record on education to Saddam Hussein's record on civil rights. By the end of the day, Easley's rhetorical flourish - which highlighted an hourlong debate on education issues - had Ballantine's campaign demanding an apology. Ballantine, a Republican, came hard after Easley in a lively televised forum held at SAS Institute. He argued the Democrat is not the education governor he promised to be when he won election four years ago. In a retort that raised eyebrows in the crowd, Easley responded: "If Patrick Ballantine...

    Election 2004: Democrats aim to prevent repeat of 2000 election fiasco By KEN THOMAS, Associated Press June 14, 2004 HOLLYWOOD — Recalling the contentious 2000 election, Democrats urged party activists on Sunday to find legal observers, push early voting methods and remain vigilant of any problems during the upcoming November election. Party leaders and activists discussed ways to prevent a repeat of the 2000 election in Florida, in which George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by 537 votes after a 36-day recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court. "Any way we cut it, these people are going to try...

    The current toxic political atmosphere, in which one side is concerned about voter fraud and the other about voter disfranchisement, is largely the product of the elephant in the parlor left over from the 2000 election. Of course, I'm talking about the Florida recount, the gold standard for botched elections, and all the bitter recriminations it launched. The Florida battle returned to the news as the 2004 election approached in Michael Moore's hit film Fahrenheit 9/11, which begins with a malicious account of what happened in 2000. In essence, Moore claims that George W. Bush, aided by Florida's Republican secretary...
  • Democrats hammer Bush in new video: 'Fortunate Son' implies Bush lied about Guard service

    The Democratic National Committee released a new video today that implies President Bush has lied about his National Guard duty and therefore is not a trustworthy leader. The video, entitled "Fortunate Son," begins with footage of troops in Vietnam, saying some people "chose war, others chose different paths" – an obvious reference to John Kerry's service in Southeast Asia. Next the three-minute ad suggests Bush "pulled strings" to get into the Guard, thus avoiding Vietnam service. As evidence, the video features part of an interview by CBS News' Dan Rather with former Texas Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes, in which the...

    Pardon My English ^ | Aaron Margolis
    Democrats quickly rebutted Zell Miller's vicious speech Wednesday night, with a web video called "Zell Miller: Then and Now" and with links to "donate to REAL Democrats who DO get it." You see video of Zell being critical of George Bush, saying that "George Bush just doesn't get it," and repeats that line many times. You hear Zell Miller say that George Bush doesn't deserve "four more years." The video then cuts to the “Now” Zell Miller, with a quote of his from August 1, 2004, saying “I am for President George W. Bush because he is the right man...

    "If you can remember the 60's, you didn't live in the 60's" Apparently there was some really, really bad acid going around in Democratic circles towards the end of 1968. First, John Kerry talked about hearing a speech by President Nixon around Christmas of 1968. Then, former Texas Lieutenant Governor Ben Barnes talked about how, while in office, he helped George W. Bush get into the Texas Air National Guard when Bush enlisted in May of 1968. Only one minor problem with these two stories. Neither Nixon or Ben Barnes held those offices in 1968. Both were inaugurated in January...
