Liars: Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski

I doubt these MSNBC lying propagandists feel any shame whatsoever, even though they’ve now been busted (hat tip Right Scoop).

Charles Joseph “Joe” Scarborough, liar

Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski, liar

Joe responded after the doctored clip with a fake laugh outburst, hands completely covering and rubbing his face, while he muttered “Sweet Jesus” in feigned embarrassment for Romney. Mika offered a patronizing fake apology: “Sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be so hard on him [Romney].” Both showed outward discomfort in these responses, unable to look into the camera while they lamely attempted to bolster the lie.

little guy gave us a scare

One of my favorite little guys in the world is a better sally and taddy catcher than you are, take my word for it. Scared of handling animals? Fuhgetaboutit. He converses naturally in eloquent jibberish, but don’t let that fool ya. He speaks as clearly and as intelligently as any adult I know, and has for as long as I can remember. He’s a quick study, and if you happen to be a little slow on the uptake, don’t be surprised if you get a mildly sarcastic “Uh, yeah?” thrown your way. He’s a solid ball player just like his Mom and Dad, but he plays it cool. My man’s not really the bragging type.

He’s not very good at hide and seek, because he goes into giggling fits when “it” gets close. The potential for natural disasters where he lives is one of his least favorite things. Also, he’s quite the ladies man. You might wonder what those last two random facts are doing in the same paragraph, but a couple of years back when one of his favorite young belles moved away to Indiana, he mused out loud, “I wonder if they have tornadoes in Indiana?”

The little guy’s okay today – I don’t mean to scare my readers. But he lives on the other side of the country these days, so if you see him, please remember to never feed him nuts. He had his last peanut butter last night, and made two scary trips to the ER as a result. He showed courage through an EpiPen jab to the leg, and an IV on the second ER visit. In fact, he offered comfort to his little sister in the middle of it all that she’ll never have to worry about EpiPens like he will.

I got an update that he’s good today, back to normal. He was talking about dragons with his Mom, and when I heard that I was finally able to exhale. Take care, my man, we love you! Can’t wait to see you soon.

kick the can down the road

Last Thursday, the Federal Reserve tripled down on failed policy.  According to Twitchy, the US will “stimulate” the Demise by purchasing $40 billion in mortgage debt monthly.  When you wake up one day in the not too distant future, asking yourself “what happened?”, remember that Ben Shalom Bernanke was a big piece of the puzzle.

generational thief

willful neglect of Israel

As Jeffrey Goldberg reports at the Atlantic, the Obama Administration continues to slight our dear ally Israel exactly when fortitude is called for. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears completely fed up. Can we blame him or the Israelis?

Mr. President, your treatment of Israel has been shameful.

I stand firmly for Israel, and I am ashamed that my country has ignored the call under Obama’s direction. I pray we correct this injustice soon.

Open thread: Despicable divisiveness

I am opening this thread on August 17, 2012, and I pray that I’ll be able to close it in my lifetime.  I am sick, sick, sick of race baiting, Balkanization, false divisiveness, vicious dishonesty, and bigotry accusations from the mouths of bigots. I hope that we Americans retire these rot peddlers into the putrid history bin marked “contempt”.

tolerance, unless…

2012-11-06, Bill Press earns his faux tolerance repeat offender stripes on uncleham.

2012-11-06, Michael Moore spouts ignorant, unfounded racist accusations on HuffPost Live (HPL hosts were Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and Zach Carter). This exchange is such a stunning hack job by all three participants that it must be seen to be believed:
HPL, AS-E: “A lot of people on the mainstream media you watch it when race does come up they talk about how Republicans are kinda doubling down on the white electorate they… they’re claiming that Latinos aren’t going to the polls, so on, so forth. Why does division… I mean, do you think race is… is overlooked in terms of, uh, how significant a role it plays?”
Moore: “People are really uncomfortable to wanna… to say it. Uh, even just before we went on, y’know I was… I was [smile, hand waving] using some euphemism…”
HPL, AS-E: “right”
Moore: “Uh, to avoid having to say what I think a lot of us know to be the truth. And it’s not to say that all Republicans are racist, uh, or people who voted for Romney are racist, I don’t believe that, but I do believe that hate is a huge motivator on… on Romney’s side. And they have manipulated that, and exploited it as best they can to try and get people out to get rid of Barack Obama. Not so much that… that they’re for Romney, but to get rid of… of Obama.”
HPL, ZC: “We’ve heard… that… that Welfare ad that… that he was running for a very long time…”
Moore: “Yeah, exactly”
HPL, ZC: “…I think that was clearly [inaudible]”
Moore: “no, they know exactly what they’re doing”
[Cut/Splice in original HuffPost video]
HPL, ZC: “Well, I guess I’m curious, ’cause I understand the… the psychology behind [smile, hand waving] like a ruling class landowner from… from the 18th century, but… but these groups like True the Vote, this sortof like Minutemen-esque, sortof grass roots voter suppression, uh-uh-uh movement that’s going… I mean where does that come from? Is that… that something that… that you think of as being relatively new and unique, or do you see this as a… a y’know trans-historical phenomenon?
Moore: “I think… I think it’s been with us for a very long time, and… and that, um, that kindof harassment and intimidation has come in many forms over the years. And today, it’s in the form of… I don’t know how many… [pause, swallow, more handwaving] they claim to have hundreds of thousands of people at the polls. They’re gonna try and stop as many people… look like they’re gonna vote for Obama uh, as possible. Umm…”
HPL, AS-E: “By that you mean people of color, perhaps? Minorities, I dunno [smiling]? Latinos [large smile]?”
[all three share a good laugh]
Moore [chuckling throughout his answer]: “I-I-I-I… that was… that was… that was a… that was a polite way of saying…”
HPL, AS-E [still smiling]: “…potentially”
Moore: “…[laugh pause] there’s a group of racists standing at the polling booths, looking… [waves hands]”
HPL, ZC: “Doesn’t that shock you, though? I mean, it’s 2012. I mean, IT IS 2012, and we’re doing this Jim Crow stuff.”
Moore: “No…”
HPL, AS-E: “We’re also talking about abortion in 2012. [smiling]”
Moore: “But listen, I… guys, um, I… I lived in a time… I have a memory as a child of seeing a sign on a restroom door that said ‘whites only.’ I mean, that’s in my lifetime, and look how young I am. So I mean, it [laughs]… it wasn’t that long ago.”

2012-11-06, Anonymous Coward Racist broke federal law and put flyers from a non-existent Tea Party group in mailboxes in Medina County, Ohio. One side said ‘ROMNEY MUST WIN / THE N—– OBAMA MUST LOSE / DEMOCRATES (sic) AND THE N—–S WANT TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY AS WE KNOW IT / GET OUT AND VOTE / GOD IS ON OUR SIDE / THE NRA IS BEHIND YOU / BE PREPARED / BE ARMED’. The other side said ‘THANK YOU FOR HELPING US DEFEND “WHITE AMERICA” BY DEFEATING THE N—– IN OUR “WHITE HOUSE”. / PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN TICKET TO HELP OUR COUNTRY STAY STRONG AND WHITE. / THE NRA KNOWS THAT THE N—–S WANT TO CONTROL OUR COUNTRY. / BE PREPARED / BE ARMED / MCTP’ (sources: Breitbart, Weasel Zippers)
