Obama's Bloggers

President Obama invited 5 liberal bloggers to the White House Wednesday to discuss issues ranging from the potential for bipartisanship moving forward to the status of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The participating bloggers were Barbara Morrill of DailyKos, Joe Subday from Americablog, Jon Amato from Crooks and Liars, Duncan Black (a.k.a. Atrios) from Eschaton, and Oliver Willis.

Barbara Morrill has provided a full transcript of the exchange. Read the full transcript here.

I'm a  little bent out of shape since I saw this shortly after posting this story last Wednesday, and didn't follow up with it immediately. Here's the first question and answer  from this Soros SoirĂ©e.
    Q    Thanks for having us here, Mr. President.  Just to start off, because the news of the day is obviously what just happened in Kentucky.  What’s your feelings on the thought of a Rand Paul supporter actually stepping on the neck of a female MoveOn supporter?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, look, I think that one of the things that I’ve always tried to promote is civility in politics.  I think we can disagree vigorously without being disagreeable.  And what we saw on the video was an example of people’s passions just getting out of hand in ways that are disturbing.
What neck?
This is so typical of how these people operate, and why nobody but True Believers pay attention to them.  The video has been played ad nauseum by the Donk media, so there is an immediate disconnect between what our lying eyes saw, and how they describe it.  The guy did place (not stomp) his foot on the girl's shoulder (shoulder), and he did then push down (not stomp) on it.  He did all of that.  He did not step on her neck (described as "stomped on her neck" in other forums.  So there's that.

Even worse is the President's "I’ve always tried to promote is civility in politics" crock.  Talk about disconnected from the truth.  Do I have to list every example of this guys thuggery?  Hell no; the whole nation is aware of how "get in their faces," this guy is.   Obama is clearly a sociopath, and so too these toads.  They have to be.  Punk sociopaths.

The Naked Communist


Many of us have noted with dismay the similarities between the Democrat Party since 1974, and longstanding rhetoric and actions by World Communists. Cuzzin Ricky found The Naked Communist written in 1958 by the late W. Cleon Skousen.  

The following is the list of Communist goals contained in that book written 52 years ago.
The Naked Communist

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Skousen claimed that an American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums.

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy." Skousen claimed Communists sought to encourage the practice of masturbation.

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.
So, how do you think they've done so far?


Still a Great Costume Idea

How Sarah Barracuda Becomes President

President Palin

This NEW YORK magazine article,  2012: How Sarah Barracuda Becomes President, has much to recommended it.   Let's start by using it to answer a question Josh asked after I dissed John Boehner as the next speaker: "What's wrong with Boehner?"

All those guys, they could try and turn it up and have the fervor, but voters are gonna read through it,” says Dowd. “It’s just not authentic to them, because they’ve been part of the Washington scene or taking part in state politics, where they cut deals and made compromises—which is part of governing but lethal in this environment.

That assessment was aimed at establishment guys (Romney. running for president, but it applies to Boehner as well.  In this regard John Heilemann displays an understanding of the Teaparty that few others have displayed.  He notes that in any other year Mitt Romney would be the GOP's  designated (can you say John McCain) candidate, but "his favorability among conservative voters is just 30 percent."

The reasons are myriad, but paramount among them is his role in enacting a health-care law in Massachusetts that bears a striking similarity to the controversial (and loathed on the right) federal overhaul that Democrats passed this year.

Others are similarly dismissed in a Teaparty environment:
  • Pawlenty is an erstwhile liberal on climate change;
  • Huckabee is widely written off because he lacks the capacity to raise big cash and his appeal is limited to Evangelicals
  • We Republicans are so desperate for an ideas guy like Newt Gingrich that sometimes we even turn to Newt Gingrich, ... “[But] he is not a serious candidate for president.
  • [Texas Gov. Rick] Perry’s a hero to Second Amendment zealots and shit-kickers alike. But Perry hasn’t given the slightest public indication that he’s interested in running, and even if he did get in, he might well prove no match for Palin in the anti-Establishment tier.
How will the Establishment candidates cope with [Palin the candidate]? “The first thing it does is completely freaks them out ... And the hard part is, it’s going to be difficult for them to go after her, because she’s so popular [within the party] - Segue Bloomberg factor - in a nutshell.

Moderate Republicans would rebel and turn to someone with business acumen - Bloomberg.  Running as a third-party candidate, he siphons off New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, and California. Denying Obama those states.

 ... with Palin holding the fire-engine-red states of the South, and the president might find himself short of the 270 electoral votes necessary to win.

Assuming you still remember the basics from American Government 101, you know what would happen next: The election would be thrown to the House of Representatives—which, after November 2, is likely to be controlled by the Republicans. The result: Hello, President Palin!

There are plenty of  liberal laugh lines that leak through, but while I won't be putting money on this scenario right now, it's a very good effort.

Al Franken is a Liar

What's that stink?
When you can smell chutzpah

Franken Stinks Up Da Joint

Oatmeal in the morning?  Al Franken stole the senate seat he occupies.  Did it quite publicly, and unashamedly.  I tasted bile the next morning.   Which is why I've reacted this way to a  fundraising letter he sent out yesterday.  I mean, come on.  His colleagues must know.  They must wish he'd STFU.  Wouldn't you?

Franken: On Nov. 3, breakfast should 'taste like victory'

In one scenario, Franken wrote, it's "8 a.m. You stumble out of bed. Make some oatmeal. Turn on the TV to find out what happened in that Senate race, the one that was too close to call all night. But you gave $5 to the DSCC … And, lo and behold, your favorite Democrat ... pulled it out by a few votes. Oatmeal never tasted so sweet."

"But there’s another way it could go," he went on. "8 a.m. Oatmeal. TV. But in this example, you DIDN’T give to the DSCC. And, by a few hundred votes, some Tea Party extremist is now a U.S. Senator-elect — and Republicans have captured the majority. How’s that oatmeal taste now?"

"On November 3, I don’t want my oatmeal to taste like regret. I want my oatmeal to taste like victory."
