Tales of the Whackadoodle Right

Post by RebLem » Sun Jul 15, 2012 5:04 pm

As many of you already know, we have two political parties in the US--a center/right party called the Democratic Party, and a far right/whackadoodle right party called the Republican Party. This thread is intended for all posters to post tales of the Whackadoodle Right. I am not just talking about any old right wing stuff. I'm not talking about the people who ignore human experience and rely on economic theory as their sole guide to economic policy. I'm not talking about the people who are against abortion under any circumstances. As much as I disagree with it, that is often a well-considered moral position. I am not talking about people who feel uncomfortable when we are fighting fewer than two wars, and who would really prefer three. I am talking only about those people who say and do things that are just off-the-wall crazy, things like some of those we have seen coming from Allen West and Michelle Bachmann, among others. If everyone cooperates, this can be a "one stop shopping" thread for such tales. I don't want just liberals to post here. I'd like some regular far right right wingers to post tales about folk on the whackadoodle right that they think are beyond the pale, too. Lets have fun with this! And so, without further ado...

Iowa Republican says government illegitimate, declares herself U.S. Senator

By Jonathan Terbush | The Raw Story | Saturday, July 14, 2012 19:48 EDT

An Iowa woman who was running for a state Senate seat has dropped that bid after deciding the U.S. government is a sham, and has instead unilaterally declared herself a U.S. Senator from the Republic of Iowa in an alternative government, the Republic for the United States of America.

As Jason Noble of the Des Moines Register first reported, the candidate, Randi Shannon, had been running for the state’s 34th Senate district. However, she recently came to believe that the real U.S. government was replaced with an illegal one after the Civil War so, rather than continue her state-level pursuit, she dropped that bid and named herself a Senator of what she thinks is the true government.

In a letter fittingly posted to her campaign’s Facebook page on July 4, Shannon wrote that the country was founded as the Republic for The United States for America in 1787, and that it remained as such until the 1860s, when it was abandoned during the Civil War. Once the war ended, she wrote, the government was replaced by the, “UNITED STATES CORPORATION,” [sic] which has endured to this day as the nation’s farcical governing body.

In a statement riddled with curious capitalization meant to emphasize the government’s foibles, Shannon derides the federal government for, she claims, stomping out entrepreneurship, infringing on personal liberties, and just generally being an unconstitutional entity. Perhaps worst, she says, are the elected lawmakers who have perpetuated this system and in doing so have, “committed the most egregious acts against ‘We the People.’”

“Therefore, in order to affect the most good on behalf of The People of Iowa’s 34th District and in keeping with my conscience, I have accepted the position of U.S. Senator in The Republic of The United States of America, where I may better serve You and All of The People of Iowa,” Shannon wrote. “I want you to know I have taken an Oath to Uphold, Support and Defend The Constitution of The United States of America. This I will do to the best of my ability, So Help Me God.”

Shannon, who describes herself as a Ron Paul supporter, backs many of the same policy positions famously espoused by the Libertarian-leaning Texas congressman. She advocates eliminating the Department of Education (following its transfer to the Republic of the United States) and drastically cutting taxes while ending foreign occupations and stopping the Affordable Care Act. And, since she believes the government has been a false one for a century and a half, she considers all amendments to the Constitution from the 14th on to be invalid.

“Again, Remember, where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!,” Shannon wrote.

While perhaps not sufficiently whackadoodle to meet your criteria, we have here in East Texas our 1st electoral district Representative Louise Gohmert, justifiably famous for his zany You Tube demonstrations of conspiracy obsession in Congress.....the most notable of which was his diatribe about "Anchor Babies" with Anderson Cooper. Gohmert was the gift of Tom Delay's Texas Redistricting effort which cost the Democrats Five House Seats in the 2004 election cycle. When asked about his qualifications for office (in a debate I attended) the first thing out of his mouth was having been "Born Again" at the age of six, having taught Sunday School since the age of 11, and that his In-Laws would vouch for his character! The mega-church Gohmert attends here in Tyler is often referred to as "Six Flags Over Jesus".
It's good to be back among friends from the past.

As a former public aid caseworker in an area where there are lots of immigrants from nearly every corner of the globe, I can assure you there are such creatures as "anchor babies." What Gohmert is wrong about is that the parents are not desirous of establishing some kind of Fifth Column in the US. They are people who love this country so much, they have developed a 30-35 year plan to become citizens themselves. They get into the US as students, have a baby here, who is, therefore, a native born US citizen, take him back to their country, perhaps even when their visas expire, and raise the kid abroad. Then, when the kid is 18, the parents send him back to the US, he establishes himself with a job and an income, and then sponsors his parents to come here. People who have done this are some of the most intensely patriotic Americans you would ever want to meet. Definitely not Fifth Columnists.

How wonderful it would be if corporate CEO's were as effective in the stratigic positioning of their firm's future in the marketplace! By the way, what if they produce girls instead of boys? How does that work out for them in the long run??

I don't know about the corporate world, but I presume that the Republicans couldn't have nearly the political success they are enjoying or (not without reason) contemplating without the cooperation or at least acquiescence of large numbers of women.

Republicans vs. Women [editorial]

Even with a persistent gender gap in a presidential election year, House Republicans have not given up on their campaign to narrow access to birth control, abortion care and lifesaving cancer screenings. Far from it.

A new Republican spending proposal revives some of the more extreme attacks on women’s health and freedom that were blocked by the Senate earlier in this Congress. The resurrection is part of an alarming national crusade that goes beyond abortion rights and strikes broadly at women’s health in general.

These setbacks are recycled from the Congressional trash bin in the fiscal 2013 spending bill for federal health, labor and education programs approved by a House appropriations subcommittee on July 18 over loud objections from Democratic members to these and other provisions.

The measure would bar Planned Parenthood’s network of clinics, which serve millions of women across the country, from receiving any federal money unless the health group agreed to no longer offer abortion services for which it uses no federal dollars — a patently unconstitutional provision. It would also eliminate financing for Title X, the effective federal family-planning program for low-income women that provides birth control, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and testing for sexually-transmitted diseases. Without this program, some women would die, and unintended pregnancies would rise, resulting in some 400,000 more abortions a year and increases in Medicaid-related costs, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a leading authority on reproductive health.

On top of that, the bill would prevent implementation of most of the Affordable Care Act, wiping out its numerous advances for women’s health. It would seriously weaken the requirement that employee insurance plans cover birth control and other preventive health services by allowing any employer to opt out based on personal religious beliefs or moral objections.

Pushed by the subcommittee’s chairman, Denny Rehberg, a Montana Republican, the budget plan stands little chance of being passed in its current form. Congress is about to leave on its August break, and, without explanation, the full Appropriations Committee’s consideration of the bill has been postponed indefinitely. It may be that Speaker John Boehner wants to avoid a controversy heading toward November that shifts focus from the economy.

Even so, the subcommittee’s anti-woman work product is a statement of Republican policy. It is endorsed by the full committee chairman, Harold Rogers, and will be a starting point for negotiations on a budget deal with the Senate. Furthermore, when Congress puts forth bad ideas to curtail birth control and abortion access, they tend to spread, helping to inspire copycat bills in the states. Since House Republicans first tried to defund Planned Parenthood, for example, similar attacks have been enacted in six states, most recently in North Carolina earlier this month.

There is a striking overlap between the subcommittee’s regressive politics and the policies espoused by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. That makes it a window on what a Romney presidency could mean for women’s rights and lives.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

TN Rep. Kelly Keisling forwards Obama fake assassination rumor

The Tennessean | Posted on August 1, 2012 by Chas Sisk

State Rep. Kelly Keisling, a first-term lawmaker from Byrdstown, passed along a conspiracy theory email to constituents this week and rapidly reaped the sort of political firestorm that only the Internet can deliver.

Through an aide using his email account at the state legislature, Keisling shared an online article that alleges President Barack Obama is planning to fake his assassination as part of a plan to impose martial law. Sketchy theories like this abound in the days before a presidential election, but Keisling apparently took it seriously enough to sound the alarm.

“God help us, if ANYONE stoops to this level!” reads a portion of the message that appeared to be written by someone other than Keisling but presumably expressed a sentiment he shared. “As I was reading this article I kept thinking that the more we are aware that something like this is remotely possible, the better off we are to recognize it and fend it off…”

A recipient took umbrage with the message and sent it along to the Huffington Post, which wrote about it Tuesday. This morning the story was being distributed widely and it was, of course, the top news item around about Kelly Keisling.

(Sidenote: His official legislative website is one of the few with an easy-to-use form to receive his newsletter. His subscribers are sure to shoot through the roof.)

Keisling quickly owned up to the message and, through a GOP spokesman, expressed regret for the forward.

“Earlier this week, I forwarded an email from my legislative office that should not have been sent out. The message was inappropriate for distribution. I regret the error and pledge to be more cautious regarding the information distributed from my office in the future.”

Read the complete text of the email below:

Representative Keisling would like to share this information with you.

Holt Whitt, Legislative Assistant to Rep. Kelly Keisling
108 War Memorial Building
Nashville, TN 37243
Telephone: (615) 741-6852
Fax: (615) 253-0234

Something to think and PRAY about. Interesting times…

Blessings, Ruby

Importance: High

God help us, if ANYONE stoops to this level! As I was reading this article I kept thinking that the more we are aware that something like this is remotely possible, the better off we are to recognize it and fend it off…..then the author addresses my very thoughts! The last paragraph in blue summarizes the reason we should pass this one around.

For some reason, the word “treason” comes to mind if this is attempted!

An Obama rumor that must never become reality!

By Joe Angione

A good journalist is usually taught not to print rumors or at least never to present them as the truth. What I’m going to report here is only a rumor that presently can’t be confirmed. But it is of such magnitude that it must be made known if only to prepare America for a possible terrible eventuality. And while it has not been confirmed, neither can it authoritatively and convincingly be denied, certainly not in a United States where our Constitutional rights are under constant attack.

This rumor involves an agent of the Department of Homeland Security who allegedly informed a reporter at the Canada Free Press of a “false flag” or faked event to be initiated by Obama administration operatives in the hope of preventing the November presidential elections.

Canada Free Press (CFP) is an independent, conservative, electronic daily newspaper, updated several times a day. It boasts more than 100 writers and columnists who file stories regularly to the newspaper from all corners of the globe. According to the newspaper’s coverage of this DHS “whistleblower,” the event would be a staged assassination attempt on the life of President Obama that would be blamed on “white supremacists” and subsequently used to enrage black and Hispanic communities driving them to rioting all across the nation.

The faked assassination, says the CFP report, would be carried out through the assistance of DHS agents, and “other colluders” taking their orders from the White House. The objective would be to stir up enough racial unrest to justify the imposition of martial law in major urban cities, including erecting DHS checkpoints, restricting travel, and delaying (possibly indefinitely) the November, 2012 elections.

Doug Hagmann, reporting in the May 8, 2012, edition of the Canada Free Press wrote that his informant works in “the upper-echelon of DHS,” which he described as “effectively under the control of Barack Hussein Obama.”

Hagmann’s contact said: “The DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that ‘a civil war’ is the more appropriate term. Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it.”

The DHS whistleblower mentioned a recent meeting at the Department of Homel and Security where plans were discussed to use pawns to simulate the rioting seen in the Arab Spring countries that would bring on a “controlled chaos” for the benefit of the Obama administration.

“Envisioned by these conspirators are riots starting in urban areas such as New York, followed by a disruption of business and commerce,” the DHS source added. “They want to restrict travel, if not through high energy prices, then by checkpoints and curfews mandated by the rioting and unrest…The whole purpose is to keep Obama in office for another term, no matter how unpopular he is, as he is not finished changing our country from a Constitutional Republic.”

This certainly isn’t the first rumor to surface about Mr. Obama’s intention to subvert the U.S. Constitution, by manipulating economic, racial and social issues that would polarize Americans and bring on enormous conflict, but the full measure of this contrived event, if true, involves total suspension of our democratic rights, and repression on a scale never thought possible in the America we’ve known and cherished all our lives.

It’s a rumor that bears watching…and is worth spreading because the more people who know about it–and understand the high level of deceit and treachery that confronts us daily in Washington –the less likely it is for the rumor to become a reality. The lesson here is that if people are aware of the possibility, even remote, of some great calamity befalling them, they’re on guard…they’re prepared…their defenses are up, and those who would commit evil, will back down fearing a confrontation they can’t win.

The more we talk about the potential for a staged, bogus presidential assassination that would trigger massive civil unrest and possible martial law, the stronger is our defense against it actually occurring. The nation will be watching. Patriots everywhere will be on alert. The Obama administration will be under scrutiny more intensely than ever before. It doesn’t have the guts to take on millions of Americans when we’re ready for anything.

Sometimes rumors are a good thing.

Conservatively, JA

Bryan Fischer Calls For 'Underground Railroad' Kidnapping To Save Gay Parents' Children

Huffington Post | Posted: 08/08/2012 4:00 pm

A prominent anti-gay pundit has sparked the ire of many in the blogosphere after calling for an "Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households."

Late Tuesday, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer tweeted: "Why we need an Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households: http://t.co/72xizzeX ."

That tweet also linked to an essay written by Robert Oscar Lopez, who claims that "children of same-sex couples have a tough road ahead of them -- I know, because I have been there."

"I just grew up in a house so unusual that I was destined to exist as a social outcast," Lopez says of being brought up by a lesbian couple. He continues, "Gay people who grew up in straight parents’ households may have struggled with their sexual orientation; but when it came to the vast social universe of adaptations not dealing with sexuality -- how to act, how to speak, how to behave -- they had the advantage of learning at home. Many gays don’t realize what a blessing it was to be reared in a traditional home."

Fischer's tweet followed a nearly identical one, in which he wrote: "Head of Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households goes on trial. http://t.co/jkm8xE5I ."

In that tweet, Fischer included the link to a Reuters article printed in the Chicago Tribune about the case of Kenneth Miller, a Virginia-based Mennonite minister who has been charged with aiding and abetting the kidnapping of 10-year-old Isabella Miller-Jenkins.

Isabella's mother, Lisa Miller, reportedly took her daughter to Nicaragua three years ago after losing a series of family court battles in Vermont with Janet Jenkins, her former lesbian partner. The New York Times reported that Miller has been assisted by evangelical groups who endorsed her decision to kidnap her daughter rather than expose her to Jenkins' "homosexual lifestyle."

Among those to condemn Fischer's claims was ThinkProgress blogger Zach Ford, who noted, "This is incredibly dangerous rhetoric that has the potential to do great harm. How much destruction could self-declared 'Harriet Tubmans' do to same-sex families, motivated by Fischer’s claims? More than ever, the 'culture war' is a direct attack on the lives of LGBT and their families."

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) echoed that sentiment. "Fischer’s call for kidnapping children from same-sex partners is not only offensive, but a harmful mischaracterization of families that struggle daily to provide loving and safe home environments despite significant legal, financial and dignitary inequality," an HRC official writes on the organization's blog.

Of course, Fischer's anti-gay declarations are hardly new. Previously, he cited the Penn State child abuse scandal as evidence why same-sex parents shouldn't be allowed to adopt children. Earlier, he slammed gay rights, abortion and even environmentalism as "the work of Satan himself" on his "Focal Point" radio show.

Missouri Republican: 'Legitimate rape' rarely causes pregnancy

By Michael O'Brien | NBC News | August 19, 2012

A Republican Senate nominee found himself in hot water on Sunday for suggesting that instances of "legitimate rape" rarely results in pregnancy.

Rep. Todd Akin, a Republican who's locked in a hard-fought campaign in Missouri to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, was answering a question regarding his position on abortion rights in instances when a woman is a victim of rape.

"People always want to make it into one of those things — well, how do you slice this particularly tough ethical question," Akin said in an interview on KTVI-TV, video of which was circulated by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," Akin said.

Regarding his opinion on whether to allow for an abortion in such instances, Akin added: “But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

Akin's comments had an almost immediate impact on Missouri's Senate race. McCaskill wrote on Twitter:

As a woman & former prosecutor who handled 100s of rape cases,I'm stunned by Rep Akin's comments about victims this AM bit.ly/NahiHz

In a statement, Akin said that he had misspoken.

"In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it's clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year," he said.

Akin emerged earlier this month from a tough three-way primary in Missouri, where he rallied social conservatives behind his candidacy. Democrats actually spent during that primary to help Akin win, viewing the six-term congressman as a less formidable challenger in the general election.

McCaskill, who was first elected in 2006, has become a top target for Republicans this fall, given President Barack Obama's unpopularity in the state and successive statewide victories for the GOP.

Republicans need a net gain of four seats this fall in order to take over the Senate in the next Congress, and Democrats must defend 23 seats this fall. But unexpected Republican retirements and races that have become more competitive than expected have boosted Democratic hopes of maintaining their majority.

Tom Head, Texas Judge: Obama Reelection Could Lead To 'Civil War,' I'm Ready To 'Take Up Arms'
The Huffington Post | By Nick Wing
Posted: 08/22/2012 1:04 pm Updated: 08/23/2012 12:54 pm

Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, plunged far out into the periphery of anti-President Barack Obama conspiracy theories on Monday, pushing a particularly outrageous one as justification for a tax increase in the county.

Head told FOX34 that Lubbock's law enforcement needed extra tax dollars in order to be prepared for a full-scale uprising, which he said could be a byproduct of Obama's reelection. According to Head, the president is seeking to sign a variety of United Nations treaties that will effectively take precedent over domestic law.

“He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."

Head continued, delving deeper into his hypothesis and claiming that he was prepared to join the hypothetical resistance.

"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say, 'You're not coming in here,'" the judge said. "And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said, 'You gonna back me?' He said, 'Yeah, I'll back you.' Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."

So, there you have it. Head would have listeners believe that they must agree to increase Lubbock's property tax rate by 1.7 cents in the next fiscal year, or risk being forced to submit to a foreign occupying force invited into the nation by the president of the United States.

Of course, this theory is entirely bunk.

Anything signed by the president as part of a U.N. Convention “can only be implemented through domestic legislation enacted by Congress or state legislatures, in a manner and time-frame determined by our own legislative process.” Effectively, broader U.N. provisions can't supersede laws passed by Congress, and only serve as guiding principles for signatories to consider.

While it might seem outrageous that such a bizarre conspiracy theory is being promoted by an elected official -- as grounds to support a particular policy no less -- Head isn't the only one.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney appeared to give some credence to the same theory in response to a question at a town hall in Ohio last month.

"Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean, that is the wrong way to go, right? Do not cede sovereignty," Romney said. "I’m happy to talk there. I’m not willing to give American sovereignty in any way, shape or form to the United Nations or any other body. We are a free nation. We fought for freedom and independence. We are going to keep freedom and independence."

Letter of the Day: The Mother Ship is watching

Judge Tom Head’s keen insights have brought unwanted attention to our operations, so we will have to accelerate the plans.

He only got part of it right. Even as you read this, a number of fighter craft are fanning out from our Mother Ship, which is orbiting Earth under the cover of an anti-radar shield.

We had planned to swoop down to conquer the U.S. the moment Obama’s re-election was certified. (He’s one of us, you know; we planted that birth certificate in Honolulu decades ago in preparation for this moment.) But now we can’t wait until November.

You remember the three men on the grassy knoll? Well, they are still in charge of operations in your zone and will be visiting Lubbock soon.

Allen West Did That Thing Where He Insinuated Obama Is a Commie, Again

By Chris Joseph | Broward-Palm Beach New Times | Mon., Sep. 10 2012 at 3:16 PM

The sun rises, the sun sets, Allen West sees communists in his Cheerios. It's all part of the fabric of life, the universe, and everything.

In a speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition yesterday, Rep. West said that Obama's 2012 campaign slogan, "Forward," is actually a supersecret subconscious Commie Marxist theme.

Back in April, some GOPers were jumping all over one another to point out that "Forward" was totally a word the Nazis used to push their propaganda machine.

Obama is a Commie! Obama is a Nazi! Obama is whatever ridiculously troglodytic, fear-mongering, bullsh*t narrative we choose to try to shoehorn into the conversation!

Republicans! F**K YEAH!

Said West:

We are now $16 trillion in debt. We have 47 million Americans on food stamps. We have close to 9.5 million more Americans in three-and-a-half years on the poverty rolls. That's not turning the corner. But yet, they want to bring out an old Soviet Union, Marxist-Socialist theme for their campaign called "Forward." I have to ask you one simple question. Where is the Soviet Union today?

I ask you, where is the Soviet Union? Also, whatever happened to Spudz McKenzie? That beer drinking dog promoted beer and football. Speaking of ball. You know who had one ball, right? HITLER.

But hey, let's not be so quick to dismiss the ramblings of a crazy person who also happens to be an elected official.

- In the Russian Gulag, when prisoners would die from exhaustion, the Commissar would take a bullhorn and proclaim to the other slave laborers, "Mother Russia runs with the sweat and toil of traitors like yourself!" Runs. Know who else uses that slogan? DUNKIN DONUTS.

- Finger Lickin' Good was actually Jeffery Dahmer's motto.

- Taste the rainbow? The gays.

Allen West must be on to something!

"Forward," incidentally is also the Wisconsin state motto.

Good thing the San Francisco 49ers beat those commie bastard Packers yesterday! That Aaron Rodgers is a Red Menace!

Rush theory: Al Qaeda ‘gave up’ Osama bin Laden

By Kevin Robillard | Politico | September 13, 2012 01:30 PM EDT

Rush Limbaugh wondered Wednesday whether Al Qaeda “gave up” Osama bin Laden to help President Barack Obama win reelection.

“What if Ayman al-Zawahiri and other Al Qaeda leaders gave up Osama bin Laden for the express purpose of making Obama look good?” the conservative radio host said, according to audio posted by Mediaite. “Giving Obama stature, political capital?”

Limbaugh, admitting he had a “wild theory” and was “just thinking off the top of my head,” said bin Laden — the founder of Al Qaeda, its leader for more than two decades and a major funder of its operations until he was killed by Navy SEALs in 2011 — was “expendable.”

“Al Qaeda was not depending on Osama bin Laden for operational leadership,” Limbaugh said. “His day had come and gone.”

Limbaugh said the terrorist group would rather have Obama in power to help them get “what they want more than anything in the world” — the destruction of Israel.

“Let me put it to you this way,” he said. “Do you think that militant Islamists will be as hopeful of getting rid of Israel with a Republican president or with a Democrat president?”

Al Qaeda isn’t the only group working to help Obama’s reelection, according to Limbaugh. In recent months, the host has suggested the Chicago Teachers’ Union strike was a Democratic ploy to help the president, implied the National Hurricane Center falsified early forecasts for Hurricane Isaac to force the GOP to cancel the first day of its convention, and briefly claimed Hollywood had Batman fight Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises” to remind voters of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s business career. He quickly backed off the latter accusation.

CORRECTION: A previous version misstated the day of the radio show. Limbaugh made the comments on Wednesday.

New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

By Victor Morton | The Washington Times | April 30, 2012, 06:56PM

The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."

"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning.

There have been at least two radical-left publications named "Vorwaerts" (the German word for "Forward"). One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany's SDP, though that party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication.

East Germany named its Army soccer club ASK Vorwaerts Berlin (later FC Vorwaerts Frankfort).

Vladimir Lenin founded the publication "Vpered" (the Russian word for "forward") in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as "Forward, Soviet" (though also and more literally as "Stride, Soviet").

Conservative critics of the Obama administration have noted numerous ties to radicalism and socialists throughout Mr. Obama's history, from his first political campaign being launched from the living room of two former Weather Underground members, to appointing as green jobs czar Van Jones, a self-described communist.

Considering the source, I don't know whether that's a tendentious report or not, but this strikes me as a dumb idea for a campaign slogan to begin with. How about "With Barack, you're on the right 'track'"? (No, I'm not serious, but couldn't they have done better than "forward"?)

(I really, really hope this does not bite him in the behind. Sigh.)

Arkansas Republicans' comments on slavery, Muslims stir controversy
Sat, Oct 6 2012

By Suzi Parker

LITTLE ROCK, Ark (Reuters) - Republicans in Arkansas are struggling to get past the controversy generated by a state lawmaker who wrote that slavery might have benefited blacks and a candidate who has advocated expelling Muslims from the United States.

The Republican politicians' comments have been roundly criticized and have created an opportunity for Democrats ahead of the November 6 election. Arkansas has a Democratic governor but has voted Republican in the past three presidential elections.

In his self-published 2009 book titled "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative," state Representative Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro, Arkansas, writes that "the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise."

Hubbard, a retired teacher and Vietnam veteran who was elected to the statehouse in 2010, also wrote, "Wouldn't life for blacks in America today be more enjoyable and successful if they would only learn to appreciate the value of a good education?"

His book also says that blacks "are likely much better than they ever would have enjoyed living in sub-Saharan Africa."

Charles Fuqua of Batesville, Arkansas, is currently seeking a House of Representatives seat. His e-book "God's Law: The Only Political Solution" came out in April on Amazon.

"I see no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States," he writes in his book, according to The Arkansas Times newspaper.

Fuqua, an attorney, served as a state representative from 1995 to 1998 before losing a state senate race.

Neither Hubbard nor Fuqua could be reached for comment. Both are running for election in November.

The Republican Party of Arkansas denounced their comments and distanced itself from the two candidates.

"The reported statements made by Hubbard and Fuqua were highly offensive to many Americans and do not reflect the viewpoints of the Republican Party of Arkansas," state party chairman Doyle Webb said in a statement on Saturday.

But Webb also blamed Democrats for drawing attention to the two books, which he called "distractions."

Candace Martin, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Arkansas, said that "with these appalling views, Jon Hubbard cannot be trusted to represent Arkansans and set policy for our state."

Jay Barth, a political science professor at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, said the controversial comments were a throwback to the 1960s when Arkansas was a civil rights battleground.

"It's hard to remember a set of remarks this extreme on racial matters by an Arkansas official since the state's politics modernized in the late 1960s than that by Mr. Hubbard," Barth said on Saturday.

He added that Fuqua's writing created a particular challenge for Republicans because it made it more difficult to frame Hubbard's remarks as that of a single misguided party official. (Editing by Corrie MacLaggan, Alex Dobuzinskis and Paul Simao)

Congressman calls evolution lie from 'pit of hell'
Updated 12:49 p.m., Saturday, October 6, 2012



ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in videotaped remarks that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell" meant to convince people that they do not need a savior.

The Republican lawmaker made those comments during a speech Sept. 27 at a sportsman's banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell. Broun, a medical doctor, is running for re-election in November unopposed by Democrats.

"God's word is true," Broun said, according to a video posted on the church's website. "I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Broun also said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days. Those beliefs are held by fundamentalist Christians who believe the creation accounts in the Bible to be literally true.

Broun spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti told the Athens Banner-Herald (http://bit.ly/Us4O0Z ) that Broun was recorded speaking off-the-record to a church group about his religious beliefs. He sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

It seems unlikely that Broun's remarks were supposed to be kept private. The banquet was advertised, Broun spoke before an audience and the video of his remarks was posted on the church's website.

Onboard the Romney plane: Jerome Corsi

By DYLAN BYERS | POLITICO | 10/17/12 4:39 PM EDT

Jerome Corsi, the political writer and conspiracy theorist, is traveling with the Mitt Romney press corps today.

Corsi, 66, writes for World Net Daily and is the author of several anti-Obama books, including Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.

Asked why he was traveling with the Romney campaign, Corsi told POLITICO, "I am a Senior Staff Reporter for WND covering the campaign."

In recent months, Corsi has argued that President Obama may be gay or bisexual and that his wedding ring bears the Islamic declaration of faith, “There is no god except Allah.” In 2004, Corsi wrote the controversial Unfit for Command: Swift boat veterans speak out against John Kerry, which was criticized for factual inaccuracies. Per The Guardian, U.S. news outlets "have accused Corsi of being anti-Islamic, anti-Catholic, anti-semitic and homophobic, and of exploiting racial prejudices in an attempt to 'scare white America.'"

Romney campain press secretary Andrea Saul did not respond to a request for comment.

Indiana Senate candidate says pregnancy from rape is God's intent

Chicago Tribune | Associated Press | 7:27 AM CDT, October 24, 2012

Top Republicans were slow to embrace tea party-backed Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after he ousted a longtime GOP senator from office. Though he eventually won their support — and money — Mourdock could see both fade after telling a live television audience that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, "that's something God intended."

Mourdock, who's been locked in one of the country's most expensive and closely watched Senate races, was asked during the final minutes of a debate Tuesday night whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.

"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen," Mourdock said.

Mourdock became the second GOP Senate candidate to find himself on the defensive over comments about rape and pregnancy. Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin said in August that women's bodies have ways of preventing pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape." Since his comment, Akin has repeatedly apologized but has refused to leave his race despite calls to do so by leaders of his own party, from GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on down.

It was not immediately clear what effect Mourdock's comments might have during the final two weeks in the increasingly tight race against Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly. But they could prove problematic. Romney distanced himself from Mourdock on Tuesday night — a day after a television ad featuring the former Massachusetts governor supporting the GOP Senate candidate began airing in Indiana.

"Gov. Romney disagrees with Richard Mourdock's comments, and they do not reflect his views," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an email to The Associated Press. Romney aides would not say whether the ad would be pulled and if the Republican presidential nominee would continue to support Mourdock's Senate bid.

Other Republicans did not immediately weigh in. Indiana Republican Party spokesman Pete Seat referred comment to the Mourdock campaign. A spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday night.

National Democrats quickly picked up on Mourdock's statement and used it as an opportunity to paint him as an extreme candidate, calling him a tea party "zealot." DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz described Mourdock's comments as "outrageous and demeaning to women" and called on Romney to take his pro-Mourdock ad off the air.

Mourdock further explained Tuesday night after the debate that he did not believe God intended the rape, but that God is the only one who can create life.

"Are you trying to suggest somehow that God preordained rape, no I don't think that," Mourdock said. "Anyone who would suggest that is just sick and twisted. No, that's not even close to what I said."

In response, Donnelly said after the debate in southern Indiana that he doesn't believe "my God, or any God, would intend that to happen."

Mourdock, who ran unsuccessfully for Congress three times before becoming state treasurer, became one of the tea party's biggest winners of the 2012 primary season when he knocked off veteran Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar in a brutal campaign. Initially, national Republicans stayed out of the Indiana race because the race had appeared to be a likely win for the GOP.

But as the race grew tighter in recent months, Mourdock changed his tune and started trying to woo moderate voters. At the same time, top Republicans began stumping for Mourdock around the state in a push to break open the high-stakes Senate race. Republicans need to gain three seats, or four if President Barack Obama wins re-election, and seats that were predicted to remain or turn Republican have grown uncertain.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell came to Indianapolis for a fundraiser Monday, and Arizona Sen. John McCain and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham campaigned for Mourdock last week. New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte is due in the state Wednesday.

Romney's coattails carry special significance in conservative Indiana, where Mourdock has underperformed Romney by 12 points in most public polls. Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS also has bought another $1 million of airtime in Indiana, making his group the biggest player in Indiana's Senate race. A message left for Crossroads GPS spokesman Nate Hodson was not immediately returned.

Donnelly, a moderate Democrat who opposes abortions, has spent much of his campaign highlighting Mourdock's tea party ties and trying to accuse him of being too extreme even for conservative Indiana. Democratic groups have bought another $1.6 million of airtime for Donnelly ads this week.

Rove: Obama won 'by suppressing the vote'

By Dylan Byers | POLITICO | 11/8/12 2:43 PM EST

GOP strategist Karl Rove went on Fox News today to argue that President Barack Obama "succeeded by suppressing the vote" -- an argument that directly contradicts the conventional wisdom that Romney failed to appeal to non-white and female voters.

Rove argued that Obama won with a smaller popular vote and a smaller margin of victory than in the 2008 election against Sen. John McCain. Instead of expanding voters, Rove argued, Obama "suppressed the vote" by demonizing former Gov. Mitt Romney and encouraging people not to vote.

"President Obama has become the first president in history to win a second term with a smaller percentage of the vote than he did in the first term," Rove said.

"But he won Karl, he won!" Fox News host Megyn Kelly interjected. Kelly also asked Rove how Republicans intended to appeal to minority groups, especially Hispanics, after doing so much to alienate them in 2012. Rove pointed to Hispanic-voter turnout in Texas to argue that there was no fundamental disconnect between his party and Latino voters.

As many pundits and strategists have pointed out, the Obama campaign succeeded in large part because it appealed to -- and registered -- non-white voters, expanding (rather than suppressing) the vote in key battleground states.

In a subsequent segment, Kelly would cite "demographics" and a "racial divide in the voting booth" that "raised questions" about whether the GOP needed to do more to reach Latinos and African-Americans. "Why can't the Republicans do better with people of color?" she asked her guests.

Rove's appearance on Fox News follows the now-infamous moment from election night when he argued with Kelly and co-host Bret Baier over the network's decision to call Ohio for the president.

As I've said in another thread, the President has just received the third largest popular vote in history, and his majority of the popular vote equals and will probably surpass George W. Bush's in 2004. The only factor that could possibly have "suppressed" the popular vote for Mitt Romney was Mitt Romney, with a little help from his opponents in the Republican primaries. But Rove is part of the losing campaign and needs to explain away why all that money he collected from Republican fat cats didn't buy victory.

One interesting aspect of this election is thing is that the pernicious influence of the Citizens United decision may have been obviated. It was simply ineffective. As I said in another thread, Obama had a much more sophisticated operation powered by mathematicians who developed algorithims to tell the campaign exactly what kind of individually tailored approach would work in particular neighborhoods. The people who have those skills just won't work for anti-science antedeluvians like Rove and his anti-evolution, climate change denying buddies. These election results were The Revenge of the Nerds as much as anything else.

SuperPacs will never again be seen as the kind of threat they have been before. Out here in New Mexico, CrossroadsGPS supported Heather Wilson, the GOPer candidate for Senate, right to the end, even though the RNC abandoned her a month ago. So did the US Chamber of Commerce, which also ran ads opposing a local initiative to raise the minimum wage in Albuquerque from $7.50 an hour to $8.50 an hour effective 1/1/2013 and to automatically index it for inflation every January after that. They failed in both efforts, even though Wilson was at pains to talk about how much she supported Social Security, since she had lived partly on Social Security herself after her father died when she was 7 years old. The same was true of Janice Arnold-Jones, the unsuccessful GOPer candidate for the first congressional district seat, who was at pains to use the fact that her brother died of AIDS in 1990, and had been dependent on SSA in his final years to demonstrate her personal commitment to the Social Security system. None of it worked.

The US Chamber of Commerce efforts here in supporting troglodytic policies was particularly interesting, because, alkthough its full name appeard in print, the narrative eliminated the words "of Commerce," and referred only to "The US Chamber," a tacit recognition of the fact that their organization has squandered its goodwill in the last few years by supporting retrograde social policy initiatives.

This isn't just contrary to the conventional wisdom, this is hypocrisy of the highest (or lowest) order. In state after state, Republicans have been embarked on a campaign to suppress Democratic votes through voter ID laws! I don't know whether to laugh or to cry at this statement by one of the chief architects of this voter suppression strategy.

Ted Nugent On Obama Election: 'Pimps, Whores & Welfare Brats' Voted For 'Economic & Spiritual Suicide'

The Huffington Post | By Cavan Sieczkowski | Posted: 11/08/2012 6:03 pm EST, updated: 11/08/2012 6:28 pm EST

Detroit rocker and right-winger Ted Nugent was not too happy when President Barack Obama was reelected, so he took to Twitter to denounce the "pimps," "whores" and "welfare brats" who voted for America's "economic [and] spiritual suicide."

Nugent tweeted some choice words on Wednesday after Obama earned four more years in the White House in a landslide victory over GOP candidate Mitt Romney. He bid America "Goodluk" [sic] and good riddance.

Nugent's Twitter meltdown does not come as a surprise to some. The Amboy Dukes guitarist has long been a source of controversy for his political commentary.

In April, while speaking at a National Rifle Association convention, Nugent said there are two alternatives for him if the "vile," "evil" and "America-hating" Obama beat Romney. "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year," said Nugent, who has also defended Romney's "47 percent" comment.

Four years earlier, he threatened both Obama and 2008 competitor, Hillary Clinton.

While dressed in camouflage hunting gear and wielding two machine guns during a 2007 concert, Nugent raged: "Obama, he's a piece of sh-t. I told him to suck on my machine gun." Continuing, "Hey Hillary. You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b-tch."

Nugent was not alone in his anti-Obama ranting after the incumbent's victory. Donald Trump called for a "revolution." Former "SNL" cast member Victoria Jackson said "America died." And born-again Christian actor Stephen Baldwin tweeted that God's wrath is now upon the U.S.

Republican leader wants Allen West to move to Georgia to run for Congress

By Alex Sanz | WPTV NewsChannel 5 | Tuesday, November 13, 2012

U.S. Rep. Allen West -- the Tea Party favorite who appeared to be headed for defeat after Democrat Patrick Murphy was projected to win the 18th Congressional District race -- is being encouraged by a top state Republican Party official to run for Congress in Georgia.

"If he decides to run we could certainly use him in lots of areas," Sue Everhart, the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, told FLDemocracy and WPTV NewsChannel 5. "I would take him in a minute and we'd start finding a place at the table."

Everhart, who met West -- an Atlanta native -- at the Georgia Republican Party President's Day Dinner in 2011, said he was one of the finest congressman she had ever met and would welcome him with open arms.

"He represents what a congressman ought to be. He's done a good job and I just have a problem sometimes with why people can't see that this man went out and served him and represented him well," she said.

"He doesn't only talk the talk. He walks the walk. And has. Or he would have never been elected. If he decided to run for Congress here -- as long as it wasn't against one of our great Republican congressmen -- I would certainly get out and help him."

Earlier this year, West filed forms with the Federal Election Commission to form a joint fundraising committee with U.S. Rep. Paul Broun. The paperwork allowed the Georgia-based committee to collect funds on West’s behalf.

Michele Hickford, a spokeswoman for Allen West for Congress, said any talk of a run in Georgia was premature. "This election has not been decided," Hickford told FLDemocracy and WPTV NewsChannel 5. "Right now, Allen West is focused on ensuring every vote is counted accurately and fairly in Florida's 18th Congressional District. [The interest] demonstrates the broad support Allen West has generated across the country because he stands on principle and is not like the other politicians in Washington."

After a partial recount of ballots cast during the final three days of early voting in St. Lucie County, Murphy led West by a margin of more than 0.5% -- more than what would trigger an automatic recount.

Elections officials certified Murphy the winner but West has refused to concede.

Allen West for Congress called the recount a “sham” and said all eight days of early voting should be have been recounted in St. Lucie County.

Wikipedia:
At town hall meeting in Palm City, Florida on April 11, 2012, West was asked by a man in the audience: "What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card carrying Marxists or International Socialists?" West responded that he believed "there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party." When asked to name them, he replied "It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."[49]
He is also welcome to run in any competitive congressional district in upstate New York. After all, they've never had a black candidate to vote for. :twisted:

Key West man found dead after writing "F**k Obama!" on the wall of his house

RT | 15 November, 2012, 00:49

A Florida man who was upset about the presidential election results was found dead in his apartment after threatening to commit suicide if Barack Obama is reelected president.

Henry Hamilton, a 64-year-old tanning salon owner, allegedly told his partner before the election that “if Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around”. On Nov. 8, two days after the election, the man was found dead next to two empty prescription bottles and his living will with the words, “Do not revive! F--- Obama!” written on it.

The empty prescription bottles were previously filled with Xanax and Seroquel, which treat anxiety and schizophrenia. An overdose of either of these medications can lead to coma and death.

Hamilton’s partner, Michael Cossey, told Key West police that his partner had been “very upset about the election results". Cossey told officer Anna Dykes that he had returned to the condo he shared with his partner after a late night of playing cards and fell asleep around 6 a.m. on the sofa. He woke up to the sound of a police officer knocking on the door.

A concerned friend of Hamilton's had previously called the police, asking that an officer check up on the man. Officer Pablo Rodriguez looked for Hamilton and found the deceased man in the bedroom.

Hamilton’s partner told police that last time they spoke was when they watched the election results on Nov. 6. Cossey also said Hamilton “has been very stressed about his business.” The Tropical Tan salon that the men shared had recently closed. It may have been hit by the 10 percent excise tax, enacted under Obama’s Affordable Care Act in 2010, the Raw Story suggests.

“Obviously people don’t really kill themselves over adverse political outcomes,” wrote Slate writer Matthew Yglesias. “But it should be said that owners of tanning salons have a uniquely legitimate beef with the Affordable Care Act.”

Police believe no foul play was involved and are therefore not searching for suspects. Although they have not yet determined the cause of death, the facts surrounding the case point to a suicide.

But Hamilton wasn’t the only American upset with the election results. In Arizona, a 28-year-old woman ran over her husband with an SUV when she found out Obama was reelected and her husband did not vote. The man was critically injured. Elsewhere, more than 700,000 people have signed a petition to secede from the United States Union and riots have spread through the University of Mississippi and Texas.

The downfall of America began in 1912, according to Whackadoodle theory.

I like to keep up with what the RW is saying. This one came from a dispenser of whackadoodlism from a number of sources, Bob Livingston. He, you may remember, was a Speaker of the House for about a week before someone seeking a million dollar reward for such information put up by Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flint provided evidence that Livingston had had an affair. And, of course, this offer, like all the others Livingston sends out, is designed only secondarily to trash Democrats. Its a profit making enterprise selling books by people who can't find honest publishers to market them. All these ads say that the product being offered will soon be in bookstores, but if you check bookstores, they seldom ever show up there. But that doesn't matter, because most of the people Livingston markets to have never been in a bookstore. RebLem

ELECTION HAS CHANGED THE U.S. ECONOMY FOREVER, SAY EXPERTS

By PAT BOONE | Patriot, Entertainer

OBAMA RE-ELECTION: FATAL TO DOLLAR, ECONOMY?


The 2012 presidential election could make "Progressivism" permanent as America's ruling political ideology, and lock in forever the economic change that began exactly one century ago with the election of 1912, says Craig R. Smith, whose latest book is "The Great Debasement: The 100-Year Dying of the Dollar and How to Get America's Money Back".

The 1912 election – which ushered in the income tax and Federal Reserve System in 1913 – gave Progressive politicians nearly-unlimited power to tax, spend and borrow.

"This has produced the greatest confiscation of wealth in human history," says Smith. "Today's dollar has been debased to only two pennies of its 1913 purchasing power, and at least $222 Trillion has deceptively been taken from the American people."

"The 2012 election and 2013 'Fiscal Cliff' could complete what Progressives began 100 years ago – making their control of our government and economy permanent by addicting a majority of voters to government dependency," says Smith.

"Today 49.1 percent of American households are home to at least one person who gets government benefits," says Smith, Founder and Chairman of Swiss America Trading Corporation, a frequent guest with Fox's Neil Cavuto and other major business show interviewers.

U.S. AT TIPPING POINT, EDGE OF 2013 FISCAL CLIFF

"Benjamin Franklin warned that 'When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic," says Smith's co-author Lowell Ponte, a retired think tank futurist and investigative reporter.

"President Barack Obama's allies campaigned for his re-election with an ad that featured a Congressman Paul Ryan look-alike pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff," says Ponte. "Yet now President Obama says that if re-elected he will push America over the 'Fiscal Cliff' on January 1, 2013, if he is not allowed to impose massive tax increases on businesses and investors he calls wealthy."

"Mr. Obama is holding 300 million Americans hostage and demanding trillions of dollars in ransom," says Ponte, "or he will plunge America back into deep recession and destroy the nation's credit, not a good thing for a spendaholic government that keeps borrowing another $58,000 every second and printing more than $1 Trillion every year more than the government brings in as revenue."

"THE GREAT DEBASEMENT" - INTRODUCTION

"Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it." – Proverbs 13:11

The Framers of America's Constitution followed the Biblical standard for money, specifying that the U.S. Dollar be an honest measure of silver or gold.

So long as America kept faith with this standard, between the 1820s and the creation of the Federal Reserve Board in 1913, the purchasing power of our dollar over that time actually increased in value. American prosperity grew in part from keeping our money an honest medium of exchange and a store of reliable value trusted around the world.

In 1913 America began "The Great Debasement" of our currency, the turn from gold to today's Federal Reserve Notes, paper fiat money based only on politician promises. And as the Bible warned, in less than a century the buying power of our paper dollar has dwindled to only two cents of its 1913 value.

In this book my long-trusted friend and advisor Craig Smith and former Reader's Digest Roving Editor Lowell Ponte explain how this happened, and how our government continues to debase the dollar as a deceptive way to tax and control us. If this is not stopped soon, the dollar is doomed.

Craig and Lowell show how to free our nation, and protect our families, from soon-to-skyrocket inflation and debased values created by our ruling Inflatocracy – government of, by and for inflation. Each of us can help determine whether The Great Debasement will bring us to a new Dark Age or a new Golden Age of sound money, prosperity and higher values.

"THE GREAT DEBASEMENT reads like a real-world thriller with several possible alternative endings, yet only one possible outcome - and only one possible solution! Enlightening, prophetic and entertaining ... exposes flawed political and economic theory ... a timely, panoramic view of monetary truth ... past, present and future!" writes the Publisher, David Bradshaw of Idea Factory Press.

Tennessee pastor: Mass shootings because schools teach evolution and ‘how to be a homo’

By: David Edwards | Raw Story (http://s.tt/1xbBN) | Monday, December 17, 2012 13:06 EST

A Tennessee pastor on Sunday told his congregation that the number of mass shooting were escalating because of schools were government “mind-control centers” that taught “junk about evolution” and “how to be a homo.”

Old Paths Baptist Church Pastor Sam Morris began speaking about last week’s school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut by warning that “this sermon will not be pleasant.”

“We get all up in arms about 20 children being shot in a day care but we don’t give one good-glory rip about the 4,000 that were removed violently from the wombs of their mothers [in abortion procedures] the same day,” he explained. “I believe they use children and Christmas and all that to pull on our heart strings about gun control. That’s what it’s all about.”

Morris asserted that equal rights was a “sham” because it’s “equal immorality” and that authorities should take the body of the suspected shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, “and string him up in public and set his body on fire and leave it out there to let the birds pick his bones.”

“We’re going to see more of this,” he continued. “Because notice, the first thing in America we start yelling about is gun control. Have you noticed that? Gun control. No one’s even thought about the fact that these shootings only happened at places where guns are banned. Have you noticed that? They have never had a mass shooting at a gun show, where you can find over a thousand loaded guns at one time.”

“Why do you still send your kids to the governmental schools?” the pastor asked the congregation. “What’s behind this shooting that we saw on Dec. 14 in Newtown, Connecticut and the other one’s like it? What’s going on. Well, number one, deception… I got news for you, when you kicked God out of schools, you’re going to be judged for that.”

Morris insisted that “humanism” in schools taught Lanza that he was God and “he can just go blow away anybody he wants.”

“When I got in high school, man, I started learning all this kingdom, phylum stuff, all this junk about evolution,” he recalled. “And I want to tell you what evolution teaches — here’s the bottom line — that you’re an animal. That’s what it teaches. So, you’re an animal, you can act like an animal. Amen.”

“So, here you are, you’re an animal and you’re a god! So, what are we going to teach you about in school? Well, we can teach you about sex, we can teach you how to rebel to you parents, we can teach you how to be a homo! But we’re definitely not going to teach you about the word of God! Amen.”

He added: “They think homeschoolers are a bunch of crazies, man. But I’m going to tell you something, I’ve never seen a police officer or a metal detector at a home school. Never. Amen. Now, there’s plenty of guns at my home school. Amen. I guarantee you we’re not going to have a mass shooting at any of the schools that are represented in this building today. I guarantee you, if there is a shooting, it won’t last very long. Amen.”

“I guarantee you there’s at least six or seven guns in this place right now. Amen.”

That Tennessee pastor wrote:When I got in high school, man, I started learning all this kingdom, phylum stuff, all this junk about evolution."
Evidently he only started learning and then quit, since Linnaean taxonomic classification was in those days still based on observed similarities without any necessary reference to evolution, and should co-exist happily with the most stringent creationist notions of any biblical fundamentalist. In fact it lines up very nicely with the multiply occurring "the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the fish of the sea."

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

Sandy Hook 'truthers' harass Newtown man, conspiracy theories go viral

By Laura Edwins | Christian Science Monitor |Wednesday, January 16, 2013

With talk of a second shooter, Israeli death squads, and connections to “The Dark Knight Rises,” the Sandy Hook shooting has joined the ranks of other tragedies associated with conspiracy theories.

Just days after 20 first-graders and six adults were shot and killed at the school in Newtown, Conn., alternative theories and wild claims began circulating. In recent days, one Newtown man who helped survivors of the shooting has come under attack.

Some of the conjectures have arisen out of distrust of the government and media outlets. In other cases, they've gotten traction because they offer an explanation, when the "why" of the shooting has been elusive. A desire to deflect blame, for example away from guns, could also be at work.

In almost all instances, the Internet has been key to the claims' proliferation. “The Web seems to be the new home of the conspiracy theory. It’s where conspiracy theories live, because the Web is so good at virally spreading around these kinds of little stories,” says Jeffrey L. Pasley, an associate professor of history at the University of Missouri in Columbia, where he teaches a class on conspiracy theories.

Individuals questioning the mainstream account of events have already been dubbed Sandy Hook truthers. They're turning to websites like SandyHookHoax.com, questionable photos, and YouTube videos that take issue with reporting on the day of the shooting.

One person the truthers have zeroed in on is Gene Rosen, a Newtown man who took in six terrified students the morning of the shooting. He gave interviews to various media outlets afterward, and since then, he's been accused of being an actor paid to play a part. Fake Facebook profiles have been created in his name, and footage of the interviews with him has been edited and reposted, purportedly proving that Mr. Rosen is an actor. “I don’t know what to do,” Rosen, a retired psychologist, told Salon. “I’m getting hang-up calls, I’m getting some calls, I’m getting e-mails with, not direct threats, but accusations that I’m lying, that I’m a crisis actor, ‘How much am I being paid?' ”

The underlying theme in all the theories is that the media, the government, and Obama administration specifically either manipulated or orchestrated the shooting to move political opinion on gun control. In particular, a comprehensive truther video focuses on discrepancies in initial reporting about the number and types of guns used by Adam Lanza.

Conspiracy theories are often used as a way of deflecting blame, Professor Pasley says. “If you’re a gun owner, you don’t want it all blamed on your group. So you adopt a conspiracy theory that blames it on someone else,” he says. “Naturally people start coming up with different stories that aren’t about how having a house full of weapons is likely to lead to some sort of tragedy,” Pasley adds.

With the enormity of the shooting, it was apparent that gun violence was going to be in the national spotlight, writes LiveScience columnist Benjamin Radford. "No one, regardless of what side of the gun control issue they are on, can deny that guns played a key role in the Sandy Hook killings," he writes. "So the conspiracy theorists must instead challenge the claim that the attack even occurred."

Indeed, some truthers have questioned whether the shooting happened at all. Many of these doubts came about because of inaccurate or muddled reporting in the immediate aftermath of the shooting.

On Dec. 20, James Tracy, a Florida Atlantic University tenured professor of communication, wrote a well-sourced blog post, and later gave media interviews, arguing that contradictions in initial reporting proved that the Sandy Hook shooting was simply a “made-for-television storyline.” He placed responsibility with the mass media, saying they blindly believed and reported what officials told them. After public criticism of Professor Tracy and the university, he backpedaled a bit, insisting his blog post was simply a way to encourage news consumers to think critically. But he still implied he takes issue with the basic facts that were reported about the shooting. [Tracy teaches a course in propaganda and how to manipulate the media. Many, including yours truly, suspect that Prof. Tracy is perfectly sane, and that this campaign was a class project. RebLem]

At least so far, mass media have not delved much into the claims surrounding Sandy Hook. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, for one, has criticized Tracy and other truthers. Although other media outlets have reported the harassment of Rosen in detail, The Atlantic is one of the few news organizations to actually parse some of the theories and debunk them. It tackled the theory of a second shooter, reporting that a man whom police had initially pursued was most likely the father of a Sandy Hook student who was on the school grounds after the shooting.

Other media outlets, notably The New York Times, apologized for inaccurate reports when news of the shooting broke. Much of the “evidence” cited by conspiracy theorists is reporting that was later clarified. Mr. Radford theorizes that while most observers understand that inaccurate reporting happens immediately after a chaotic event, the conspiratorial mind sees contradictions as "misinformation and lies," or holes in the official story. Yet for some people, conspiracy theories can serve an important purpose, says Pasley, who has taught and studied such claims off and on since 1997.

“Conspiracy theories do have a function,” he says. “They are an explanation of the inexplicable, a sort of explanation that neatly puts into a box events that are extremely disturbing or tragic.”

They may be a way of "neutralizing" tragic events in the minds of theorists, Pasley adds.
