Loony Pat Buchanan: Better to Destroy Country Than End Anti-Obamacare Drive


Buchanan:  Better to Destroy Country Than End Anti-Obamacare Drive
Nutter Pat Buchanan shows what he is really all about:

In a column fittingly titled “Republicans, Stand Up – Polls Be Damned!,” Pat  Buchanan calls on Republicans in Congress not to give up on the push to derail  Obamacare, even if it means the collapse of the Republican Party. If the GOP  goes down, Buchanan writes, Republicans should bring America down with them as  he urges the GOP to be like Samson, who killed himself along with countless  Philistines in bringing down the temple.

“Republicans should refuse to raise the white flag and insist on an honorable  avenue of retreat,” Buchanan claims. “And if Harry Reid’s Senate demands the GOP  end the sequester on federal spending, or be blamed for a debt default, the  party should, Samson-like, bring down the roof of the temple on everybody’s  head.”

He urges Republicans to ignore three new polls showing the GOP approval  rating tanking over its role in the government shutdown, because time will prove  the Republicans were right about Obamacare all along.

The Right Wings Crazy Government Shutdown Conspiracy Theories


The right’s government shutdown conspiracy theories

From park closures to delayed back-pay for workers, the right sees the effects of the shutdown as a left-wing plot

It’s the second week of the government shutdown, and while the right is still confused about whether the shutdown is a good thing, one thing is certain: any and all negative repercussions from it are not only Democrats’ fault, but the result of a “sadistic” master plan to turn the American people against the Republican Party. “Obama views the shutdown as just a game,” writes Rachel Alexander for Townhall. She continues:

One senior level Obama administration official gloated, “We are winning.” Obama is cruelly playing with Americans’ emotions in order to beat the Republicans. He shut down veterans’ memorials, requiring World War II veterans to break down barriers in order to see a memorial set up for them. Obama is counting on the cruel, unnecessary shutdown of certain areas of government to anger Americans against Republicans, and not see it as a carefully plotted maneuver by the left.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty doesn’t allege any “carefully plotted” schemes from the left, but he does go so far as accuse Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of “sadism.” In response to the House’s passing a bill to guarantee back-pay for furloughed federal workers, Geraghty writes:

This is quite the revealing moment, as the leadership of the Democratic party and federal government workers are supposed to be the best of friends — symbiotic, really. But when the moment comes to help out federal workers, Harry Reid drags his feet. The only plausible motivation is that the Democrats’ strategy for “winning” the shutdown fight requires maximizing the pain to as many Americans as possible, so that the pressure is maximized on the GOP opposition to accept a deal that amounts to unconditional surrender.

“Harry Reid doesn’t want to minimize the pain of the shutdown,” Geraghty writes. “He wants to maximize it.”

From his new perch at Fox News, meanwhile, George Will argued that the National Park Service is acting like a “willing servant” of the Democrats. “All around the country,” Will said, the government “went out of [its] way to make life as unpleasant and inconvenient as possible.” Will went on to call the closure of parks “government acting as an interest group on its own behalf.”

Mitt Romney Faces Ethics Charges For Profiteering From Auto Bailout


Mitt Romney Faces Ethics Charges For Profiteering From Auto Bailout
By Kirsten West Savali

GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, will likely face charges for ethics violations on Monday for profiteering from the 2009 auto bailout initiated by the Obama Administration, reports AllVoices.com.

According to an in-depth report by The Nation.com,  Romney and his wife, Ann, “personally gained at least $15.3 million from the bailout—and a few of Romney’s most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion. Their gains, and the Romney’s, were astronomical—more than 3,000 percent on their investment.”

This, even though Romney has consistently criticized the president for the bailout; in fact, writing a 2008 “New York Times” op-ed titled, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” that has haunted him politically throughout the campaign.

All Voices reports:

“A coalition of community, labor and good government organizations is calling on the U.S. Office of Government Ethics to investigate presidential candidate Mitt Romney for noncompliance with the Ethics in Government Act and compel him to either disclose his investments or divest them,” according to the United Auto Workers Union, who requested the charges.

The Romney profits came from Adelphi, a former parts supplier of the Delco division of General Motors. Adelphi was not technically supposed to be included in the federal bailout money given to the auto industry. But since neither GM nor Chrysler could survive without parts from Adelphi, $12.9 million in federal bailout money was demanded by investors and eventually diverted to hedge funds that Mitt and Ann Romney bought into.

Romney did not disclose his windfall profits from Delphi in his June 1, 2012, Public Financial Disclosure Report to the office of Government Ethics, “because he did not disclose the underlying holdings of his private equity and limited partnership funds,” according to the UAW.

With the UAW charges coming to light, the reason for Mitt Romney’s hiden tax returns becomes more apparent and more important as he seeks the presidency.

This comes on the heels of the news that Senator Harry Reid was right to accuse Romney of avoiding paying his taxes.

As NewsOne reported, Mitt Romney used the tax-exempt status of a charity — the Mormon Church of Latter Day Saints– to avoid paying taxes for over 15 years. He “rented” tax-exempt status from them, setting up a Charitable Remainder Unitrust (CRUT), that paid him yearly dividends, while donating a miniscule amount to the church. The trade-off is at his death, the balance of the trust is gifted to the Mormon Church of Latter Day Saints.

Congress aggressively cracked down on this rich man scheme in 1997, but according to Bloomberg’s Jesse Rucker, Romney was grandfathered in because he established the tax shelter in 1996 while he was an executive at Bain Capital.

With only two days to go until the 2012 presidential election, it may or may not have any effect on the outcome. But, if the sky falls in and Romney wins, then is found guilty of ethics charges due to auto bailout profiteering, it may be slightly awkward to face criminal charges while in the White House.

Communists Smeared By Ass Clown Allen West | Accuses Them of Being Democrats!


Allen West, House Republicans’ nutcase

Via:- Steve Chapman
Conservatives are to be commended when they repudiate members of their movement found to be racist, extremist or otherwise crazy. National Review has severed ties with John Derbyshire and Rob Weissberg for public displays of antipathy to black people, a decision in the best tradition of founder William F. Buckley, who in his early days disowned the John Birch Society. When are House Republicans going to show similar courage?
Their problem is Florida Rep. Allen West, who claimed that some 80 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party.And as you can see from the video, he wasn’t making a joke.

This is not a bizarre aberration. It’s perfectly in keeping with the sort of things West has said in the past.
He told Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to “get the hell out of the United States of America.” When Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dared to take issue with him, he wrote her a furious letter calling her”the most vile, unprofessional and despicable” House member.
He said President Obama exhibited “third-world dictator-like arrogance.” When a video came out of Marines urinating on Afghan corpses, he said, “Unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth.”
He’s an embarrassment to the party. Republican House members of Congress and party officials can either condemn West and expel him from the GOP caucus or else confirm that his views are perfectly acceptable.
They might ask themselves: What would Buckley do?

Allen West | Ugly Bigot, Outed Liar


Allen West Says to President Obama, ‘Get the Hell Out of the US,’ Then Denies He Said It
Weasel of the day
 Thanks to:- Charles Johnson

Yesterday in Palm Beach, one of the right wing’s deranged heroes, Allen West, took a break from trying to end funding for NPR and repeal the 14th Amendment to deliver an especially nasty speech in which he told President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to “take their message of equality” and “get the hell out of the United States of America.”

This is a battlefield that we must stand upon and we need to let president Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and my dear friend, the chairman of the Democrat National Committee [Debbie Wasserman-Schultz], we need to let them know that Florida is not on the table. Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, and take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.

Today, in time-tested right wing demagogue fashion, he’s blaming the news media for reporting his words, and simply lying about what he said.

WEST: The other thing is that I did not refer to any person leaving. If you go back and read the transcript of the message that I gave, it was about equality of achievement, it was about economic dependence, it was about enslaving the American entrepreneur’s will and spirit. That message needs to leave this country. And that was what I was referring to. And I think that anyone that sat back and looked at the entirety of that 12 minute, 45 second speech would understand that we’re talking about a contrast of visions of this country.
