Alan Grayson: racist liar

Yuck it up, you pond scum excrement. You accuse racism (among other outrageous lies in this short email) with absolutely no evidence at all. So you are the racist, you pathetic loser. Shut your hate hole. (image and article via Weasel Zippers).

Rep. Alan Grayson

Bill Press, authority on “evil people”

Via Newsbusters,  Weasel Zippers:

I think it’s important to vote and to vote for President Obama because we’ve got to defeat the evil people who are trying to take over America’s political system. And I’m talking about the Koch brothers, I’m talking about Sheldon Adelson, I’m talking about Karl Rove and all the money that they have poured into this campaign in the most ugly, the worst possible, disgusting tactics, trying to suppress the vote, trying to lie to people — not trying, lying to people — trying to scare people, and just pouring bill-, millions and millions and millions of their own dollars to try to buy this election.

Bill Press, faux tolerance repeat offender

Bill Press is now a repeat offender on uncleham.

tattered boots, bootstraps intact

bootstraps intact

I’m not going to sugar coat it, last night’s results were very bad at the national level. But America has persevered through tough trials before: starvation at Jamestown, seemingly hopeless odds in the American Revolution, Brits burning the White House in the War of 1812, bitter division that stewed for decades leading up to and through the Civil War. We’ve put Jim Crow laws in our past, suffered terrible poverty and the Dust Bowl in the 1930s. We’ve defeated genocidal monsters all over the world. Through each of these seemingly insurmountable challenges, we’ve emerged stronger on the other side. Chin up, young Lady Liberty. Be patient with us – it’s going to take years. But we will not let you down.

exactly which lady part?

Yes, I’m well aware that the left classifies me as a card-carrying Samurai in the War on Women.

that’s me, fighting women

On the other hand, Barack Obama and the left really care about women. Don’t take my word for it, just watch this perverted ad for conclusive proof.

Surely Obama will be quite proud to show that crowning achievement “first time” ad to his grandchildren one day. We “Warriors on Women” have a polar opposite message for the ladies we love: vote for your individual liberties, vote with your God-given ability to reason.

yes, that part

Federalist #4 – the necessity of good government

John Jay argued in Federalist #4 for a unified but wise America in the face of late 18th Century foreign threats. It’s a timely read after last night’s foreign policy Presidential debate:

Wisely, therefore, do they consider union and a good national government as necessary to put and keep them in such a situation as, instead of inviting war, will tend to repress and discourage it.

The warnings contained in the final paragraph of Federalist #4 are so applicable today that they warrant full citation here:

But whatever may be our situation, whether firmly united under one national government, or split into a number of confederacies, certain it is, that foreign nations will know and view it exactly as it is; and they will act toward us accordingly. If they see that our national government is efficient and well administered, our trade prudently regulated, our militia properly organized and disciplined, our resources and finances discreetly managed, our credit re-established, our people free, contented, and united, they will be much more disposed to cultivate our friendship than provoke our resentment. If, on the other hand, they find us either destitute of an effectual government (each State doing right or wrong, as to its rulers may seem convenient), or split into three or four independent and probably discordant republics or confederacies, one inclining to Britain, another to France, and a third to Spain, and perhaps played off against each other by the three, what a poor, pitiful figure will America make in their eyes! How liable would she become not only to their contempt but to their outrage, and how soon would dear-bought experience proclaim that when a people or family so divide, it never fails to be against themselves.

modern US resources and finances rashly squandered

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)

Desperate? Guilty as charged.

Here’s a timely excerpt from the outstanding headline article over at American Thinker today by Geoffrey P. Hunt.  “Yes, we are desperate”:

Desperate to rescue a nation quickly devolving into an ungovernable economic catastrophe.  Desperate to repudiate a culture of  institutionalized dependency, where class envy substitutes for sweat equity.  Desperate to reclaim a society where individual achievement and initiative are admired, not punished.  Desperate to restore common decency in political discourse, where ideas triumph over ad hominems.  Desperate to avoid the “Road to Serfdom,” a looming certainty if Obama’s legacy prevails.

safety net, my foot

Mark Levin welcomed Senator Jeff Sessions (AL) onto his July 19th show. Senator Sessions is currently investigating the Bush administration’s removal of the food stamp citizenship requirement in the early 2000’s. What floored me was Senator Sessions’ point that $800 billion has been torched on food stamps in the past 10 years.

Do-gooders call this a “safety net” (image hat tip tracasseur.com).  You and I get the bill at the point of a gun.

So I flat out don’t want to hear this “safety net” rot from you bleeding hearts. ~100 million taxpaying Americans paid ~$8,000 each for food stamps alone over the past decade?   And that’s only one out of umpteen wasteful Federal programs.  That is outrageously abusive spending that should insult all hardworking Americans.
