9 July 2016. Bill O’Reilly is Resurrecting the Old “Obama is a Muslim” Myth Again

00 hate speech texas 01. 18.01.15

______________________________

“Many Americans, including this one, believe Barack Obama’s emotional attachment to the Muslim world has hurt the USA”.

Need I go on and on, banging on about the right-obvious truth? Obama IS many things, indeed… but he’s no Muslim, and his support of ISIS has nothing to do with “’attachment’ to the Muslim world”. That support has everything to do with weakening Syria and helping Israel (which is NOT coeval with the USA, as anti-Semites claim, but Israel IS America’s dog-loyal client state). Do note that ISIS doesn’t target Israel or Israelis! Does O’Reilly really believe the arrant nonsense that he spouts? As for me, I think that his attitude is “Paris is worth a mass” and that anything that keeps the bucks rolling in is A-OK with him. That is, O’Reilly isn’t evil… he’s simply a nihilist mercenary, like Rod Dreher and Rich Lowry. Expect more such from him as the political season progresses…

5 August 2015. Some Home Truths About the Obama Family

00 obama family AMERICAS FIRST FAMILY 040815

______________________________

We all know the schmutz that the righties toss at President Obama and his family. Virtually all of it is bullshit of the very highest grade. No, I don’t agree with Obama’s foreign policy. Yes, I do think that Zbig and Hilly lead about him in warmongering. However, I’d rate all the attacks on his family as unfounded, scurrilous, and below the salt (and below the belt, too). His wife is NOT a transsexual… BHO was NOT born in Kenya… you’ve heard it all, your Fox News listening confrères broadcast it for all to hear.

Put a sock in it. The Obama family is far better than the Bushes or the Clintons were and are… there’s no Neil Bush and Silverado nor is there Cousin Billy and his overactive libido. Whatever the shortcomings of his foreign policy and neoliberal notions, Barack Obama is a decent person, an upright man, a loving husband and father, and a moral exemplar compared to the Bush and Clinton Clans.

That’s enough for him to pass muster at the Last Day. Can you say the same about yourself?

30 May 2012. David Frum Tweets on Wafflin’ Willy… It Reveals Why Willy Doesn’t Have a Snowball’s Chance in Hell of Winning the Presidency

______________________________

Here’s what David Frum tweeted after he heard Donald Trump’s latest birther nonsense on CNN:

That was a big steaming plate of shit spaghetti Trump just deposited on CNN for his supposed friend Romney.

There it is… in plain blunt English with no equivocation. Wafflin’ Willy refuses to repudiate birtherism… is that because too many of his bubba base believes in it? It won’t play outside of anti-Obama circles. Truly, it won’t. However, what’s important here is Willy’s cowardice in the face of evil falsehood and lies. It gives us a peek into his empty, vacuous, money-grubbing, power-hungry character. What’s happened to the Republican Party? Have they all taken “stupid pills?” Compare Wafflin’ Willy to Ike and TR… and Gerald Ford, too. He even makes Nixon look good… at least, Nixon refused to contest the 1960 election, and he resigned for the good of the country. All that Willy can offer is a Cayman Islands offshore account larger than the annual budget of a small African state. Even Barry Goldwater looks like a “liberal” compared to the present lot in the GOP… no lie. Remember, Barry said, “You don’t have to be straight to be in the army; you just have to shoot straight”. Compare that to the treacly and smarmy religiosity of the current Republican Party… Barry said this about that:

I’m even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I’m warning them today… I’ll fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of “conservatism”.

I agree with Barry wholeheartedly in that… and the present Republican Party doesn’t… that should tell you whom to vote for in November. The President is a messy compromise, to be sure, but a broken and stumbling attempt at Social Democracy is preferable to a Ayn Randish state of brute anarchy (don’t forget how Paul Ryan and Dropout Scott Walker gushed over her godless ideology… oh, yes… for Orthodox people, Chad Hatfield of SVS just spoke at a venue that slobbers over Ryan… ain’t that special).

Crazy world, ain’t it? Pass me the jug…

22 May 2012. No Lie… Arizona Secretary of State Threatens to Kick President Obama Off the Ballot in His State

Why can’t the contemporary GOP act like its honourable forebears? At one time, the GOP FOUGHT corporate vultures… it broke up mega-corporations… today, it’s their scabby and shameless whore… O Fortuna, velut luna, statu variabilis (O, Fortune, as fickle as the moon…)…

******

How ’bout a little “mood music”…

______________________________

Read this. Now, note this quote:

“Sometimes, when you want to believe something badly enough, no amount of evidence to the contrary will change your mind”, says Brian Montopoli at CBS News. Bennett isn’t alone either. He was moved to act by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is going full-birther, and three GOP congressmen have recently said they’re not sure if Obama’s American. Catherine Poe at The Washington Times  said, “The birther movement would be funny if it weren’t so dangerous. It’s rampant paranoia. It’s unsettling that some Americans will always believe that Obama isn’t one of us and he tricked us to become president”.

******

The birthers are such lunatics that even the reliably-Far Right Washington Times is distancing itself from them. Willard Romney has the obligation and DUTY to condemn this nonsense explicitly and without equivocation or waffling… or mount a legal challenge against the President immediately, asking that the SCOTUS hear this case on an emergency basis, for if the President were, in fact, legally-ineligible to hold the office of POTUS, that would be his DUTY. I’ll be blunt… all of the birther conspiracy theories are pure bullshit… they don’t contain a scintilla or iota of truth, but Wafflin’ Willy refuses to condemn birtherism… too many of the bubbas in his base actually believe it (as they also believe that the President’s a Muslim and that there was a shooter behind the grassy knoll).

If you needed proof that the contemporary Republican Party has gone around the bend, and that’s its terminally-gaga, this is it, kids. Wherefore art thou, Teddy Roosevelt, Ike Eisenhower, Jake Javits, and Gerald Ford? Oh… I forgot… King Rush and Queen Ann label them RINOs… izzat so? Here’s what the Republican Party used to stand for, as Teddy said:

The great corporations, which we’ve grown to speak of rather loosely as trusts, are the creatures of the State, and the State not only has the right to control them, but its duty bound to control them wherever the need of such control is shown.

I seem to notice a DIFFERENCE between Wafflin’ Willy and Steady Teddy… one of these things is NOT like the other, and the difference isn’t flattering to Willy, is it? You KNOW what to do in November…
