Reagan Appointed Republican Greenspan: 'United States Can Pay Any Debt Because We Can Always Print Money'...
Post Date: 2011-08-07 19:46:34 by Brian S
9 Comments
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan on Sunday ruled out the chance of a US default following S&P's decision to downgrade America's credit rating. "The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default" said Greenspan on NBC's Meet the Press "What I think the S&P thing did was to hit a nerve that there's something basically bad going on, and it's hit the self-esteem of the United States, the psyche" said Greenspan Austan Goolsbee, the chairman of the White House's council of economic advisors, hit out at S&P on the same show, insisting the credit ...

Axelrod: This Is A "Tea Party Downgrade"
Post Date: 2011-08-07 13:33:55 by Brian S
3 Comments
Former White House adviser David Axelrod on Sunday pinned responsibility for the recent U.S. economic downgrade on the Tea Party movement, arguing that the group's political "brinksmanship" during debt ceiling negotiations "brought us to the brink of a default" -- and that, subsequently, "this is essentially a Tea Party downgrade." In an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," Axelrod, currently a campaign strategist for President Obama, said the U.S. economic downgrade was "largely a political analysis" and that "there's a broad consensus that [the U.S.] is still the safest place to invest your money." Nevertheless, he ...

Bilderberger Ralph Reed Making A Comeback (Will Undoubtedly Be A Major Force In Directing The Aims And Agenda Of The Tea Party Movement)
Post Date: 2011-08-06 21:01:24 by Brian S

The New York Times is hailing and promoting the return to the political arena of scandal-tainted Ralph Reed, the 49-year-old Christian right leader and Bilderberg figure who first rose to power and wide-reaching influence as the founding executive director of evangelist Pat Robertson’s Christian Coalition. The Times focused on Reed’s new incarnation as the founder of a non-profit political advocacy group known as the Faith and Freedom Coalition that Reed says will build a direct-mail and fundraising file of some 29 million conservative voters. Reed and his operation will undoubtedly be a major force in directing the aims and agenda of the tea party movement in the days ahead. ...

 Who Has The Shiniest Balls Of All? Eric Cantor!   Eric Cantor, the GOP House Majority Leader, talks about shiny balls? Cantor has defended tax loopholes for bankers, hedge fund managers and corporate millionaires and billionaires. He complains that the Democrats' constant attacks on tax breaks for the wealthy is nothing but throwing "...the shiny ball out there..." In another conversation, Cantor spoke of "...the shiny balls of millionaires and billionaires..." The list of Cantor's contributors and supporters shows clearly, that Cantor himself, may have the shiniest balls of all in this battle!   As part of the 'shiny ball' battle, Cantor ...

Five Scriptures You Won't Hear at Rick Perry's Prayer Event
Post Date: 2011-08-06 19:43:47 by Brian S
34 Comments
As a native Texan, I'm used to crazy religion and crazy politics. So, the announcement of Gov. Rick Perry's plans for "The Response," a prayer event scheduled for Aug. 6 at Houston's Reliant Stadium, was not a surprise. But as a Presbyterian minister and community organizer, it's part of my job to stand up for my neighbors. The use of the governor's office to promote one religion in a country with such rich religious diversity is obviously unhealthy politics, but – if one takes the Christian and Jewish scriptures seriously – it is also unhealthy religion. Here are five rather important verses of scripture you aren't likely to hear at "The ...

Protesters Shout Down Gov. Walker At State Fair

Scott Walker, Wisconsin’s controversial Republican governor, tried yesterday to give a speech to open this year’s state fair: tried, being the key word. As he took the stage to speak, a large crowd of protesters began chanting “Change! Change! Change!” and “Recall Walker,” generating enough noise that his speech was practically inaudible. “[Protesting is] one of those things people have a right to do,” Walker reportedly said later on. “Most people come to the fair, and they set aside politics and business and just have a good time.” This video was published to YouTube on Thursday, August 4, 2011.

Poll Shows Negative View of Tea Party on the Rise; 40% View As “Not Favorable,” Versus 18% In The First Poll

Little more than a year ago, most Americans did not know enough about the Tea Party to have an opinion. Now, more people have opinions, and they are hardly positive. The percentage of people with an unfavorable view of the Tea Party in a New York Times/CBS News Poll this week was higher than it has been since the first time the question was asked, in April 2010. Forty percent of those polled this week characterized their view as “not favorable,” compared with 18 percent in the first poll. In the first poll, a plurality, 46 percent, said they had not heard enough about the Tea Party to have an opinion (an additional 14 percent were undecided). Now, just 21 percent said they had ...

Ron Paul: ‘Super Congress’ Created By Debt Deal Is ‘Monstrous’

Thursday on the Fox Business Network, Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) described the 12 member bipartisan special joint committee of Congress created by the Budget Control Act of 2011 as “unconstitutional” and “monstrous.” “It looks to me like with this ‘Super Congress’ and committee, if we don’t vote for what they recommend, the [Office of Management and Budget] gets a lot of power, and that’s part of the executive branch,” he told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. “And who knows? That’s the area where I think that they may be raising revenue, closing loopholes. Who knows what they might be doing? But it is not a good sign for ...

Hannity Blasts Free Birth Control, Defends Free Viagra
Post Date: 2011-08-05 12:15:16 by Brian S

In a bizarre Fox News segment Thursday night, right-wing talk show host Sean Hannity insisted that providing free birth control pills to women through their insurance is helping to build a “nanny state,” but giving men free pills to give them erections is just addressing a “medical problem.” Apparently Hannity wasn’t aware than every single day, at least 1,000 women around the world die due to pregnancy, or that the majority of health insurance policies already cover birth control (PDF). Recent studies have also shown that unintended pregnancies cost U.S. taxpayers over $11 billion a year. But not being able to get an erection: that’s serious business. This ...

Former Sen. Alan Simpson: Who Is Grover Norquist A Slave To?

Former Senator Alan Simpson (R) appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word Wednesday, where he called for an investigation into anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist’s influence on the Republican Party. Grover’s anti-tax pledge has been signed by 235 House Republicans and 41 Senate Republicans. “If Grover Norquist is more powerful than the President of the United States and Congress… he should run for president,” Simpson said. “It’s time now to peel all the layers of onion off of Grover Norquist.” “Who is he a slave to?” he added. “Somewhere that needs to come out very soon.” Watch video, courtesy of MSNBC, below:

The White House to Criminalize Political Speech By Calling Tea Party People Terrorist. They Are Getting Desperate

will say good riddance when these criminals in the White House are escorted out in handcuffs and shackles. We can see the people have no confidence in government anymore. The President and the Congressional Leadership are hated. Both Political Parties are hated with a passion now for betraying the people on this debt deal. The courts, we see no remedy to this over reach in government into our lives. No, I see our republic is going into very trying times. The White House wants to silence his opposition, so his agenda can go through without resistance. We now see Vice President Joe Biden calling Tea Party people terrorist because they are a threat to their power who, still stand in their way ...

Meet the Right-Wing Hatemongers Who Inspired the Norway Killer

Few political terrorists in recent history took as much care to articulate their ideological influences and political views as Anders Behring Breivik did. The right-wing Norwegian Islamophobe who murdered 76 children and adults in Oslo and at a government-run youth camp spent months, if not years, preparing his 1,500 page manifesto.  Besides its length, one of the most remarkable aspects of the manifesto is the extent to which its European author quoted from the writings of figures from the American conservative movement. Though he referred heavily to his fellow Norwegian, the blogger Fjordman, it was Robert Spencer, the American Islamophobic pseudo-academic, who received the most ...

Poll: Muslims, Atheists Most Likely To Reject Violence

New data from polling firm Gallup shows that out of all the religious groups in the U.S., Muslims are most likely to reject violence, followed by the non-religious atheists and agnostics. Through interviews with 2,482 Americans, Gallup found that 78 percent of Muslims believe violence which kills civilians is never justified, whereas just 38 percent of Protestant Christians and 39 percent of Catholics agreed with that sentiment. Fifty-six percent of atheists answered similarly. When Gallup put the question a bit more pointedly, asking if it would be justified for "an individual person or a small group of persons to target and kill civilians," the responses were a bit more ...

(08-03) 13:25 PDT New York (AP) -- Pat Buchanan said that he didn't mean to slur President Barack Obama by referring to him as "your boy" during a discussion with Al Sharpton. The former GOP presidential candidate and current MSNBC analyst appeared on "Morning Joe" Wednesday to explain remarks he made on that network's Sharpton show 12 hours earlier. They were discussing Obama's political strength when Buchanan said that "your boy" had caved in past negotiations and was likely to do so in the future. "My what?" Sharpton responded. "My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?" Buchanan, using a boxing analogy, answered that ...

Republican Racism: Working with Obama Like ‘Touching a Tar Baby’
Post Date: 2011-08-01 17:18:48 by Brian S

Rep. Doug Lamborn likened compromising with Obama to "touching a tar baby" on talk radio today. But he probably didn't mean to use the racially charged term in a racist way, right? There's no way he missed the lesson from John McCain's "tar baby" blunder, or Mitt Romney's "tar baby" blunder, or Tony Snow's "tar baby" blunder, right? Given the famed political correctness of Lamborn's district in Colorado Springs—home of sexually repressed meth head pastors and family-focused homophobes—I'm guessing this is all a big misunderstanding. Lamborn probably meant to say was "touching a star, maybe" or ...

Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit. Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting. “We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists,” according to several sources in the ...

Joe Walsh: Just Your Average, Regular Deadbeat Dad Kind Of A Guy

08/01/11 11:14 AM ET Among the Tea Party Republican freshmen from Illinois, 8th district Rep. Joe Walsh, of suburban Chicago, is among the most self-righteous and cantankerous. Bookers for cable shout-shows love him. He’ll be in particular demand today, because he’s poised to vote against yesterday’s debt-ceiling dealing. "This isn't even as strong as the Boehner plan," he complained. It’s useful to remember this morning how Joe Walsh has managed his own finances. A couple of weeks ago, in a videotaped tirade against President Obama and wasteful government spending, he said, among other things: “Quit lying to the American people ... Show some ...

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell has banned tea party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) from ever appearing on his show again. Walsh has refused to vote for raising the nation’s debt ceiling, saying he would not place “one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids.” But it turns out that Walsh actually owes more than $100,000 in child support. “It is time to deny deadbeat dad Joe Walsh some advantages,” O’Donnell said Friday. “In order to teach deadbeat dad Joe Walsh a lesson about family values, yes, the very same family values that so many Republicans try to exploit politically while failing to come close to living up to them in their own lives, deadbeat ...

Pat Buchanan, Other Conservatives, Defend Norwegian Terrorist Breivik's Ideas

Some conservatives, in America and abroad, are defending the ideas, if not the actions, of Norwegian terrorist suspect, Anders Behring Breivik. Patrick Buchanan, perennial American conservative commentator, calling the Norway terrorist attacks "a fire bell in the night" for Europe, wrote that while he condemned Breivik as "evil" and "a cold-blooded, calculating killer", he nevertheless acknowledged that Breivik "reveals a knowledge of the history, culture and politics of Europe."Further, Buchanan said that Breivik's critique of multiculturalism was consistent with the views of Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy, and David Cameron, all of whom, ...

Rep. Allen West: Tea Party ‘Schizophrenia’ Not Helpful During Debt Ceiling Negotiations
Post Date: 2011-07-29 12:55:34 by Brian S

Congressman Allen West, one of the most vocal tea party supporters in Congress, is insisting that his support of the Boehner debt ceiling bill does not mean he is throwing the tea party under the bus or defecting from them in any way, and said that tea party “schizophrenia” is not conducive to a positive outcome in the ongoing negotiations. West appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio show, and she started by having him respond to accusations that he was defecting from the tea party on the debt ceiling debate. He argued that so far the Republicans had achieved a victory by successfully getting President Obama and the Democrats to remove tax hikes from the table. We have to ...

Bush Says Slow Reaction On 9/11 Was Deliberate Decision

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former President George W. Bush says his apparent lack of reaction to the first news of the September 11 2001 attacks was a conscious decision to project an aura of calm in a crisis. In a rare interview with the National Geographic Channel, Bush reflects on what was going through his mind at the most dramatic moment of his presidency when he was informed that a second passenger jet had hit New York's World Trade Center. Bush was visiting a Florida classroom and the incident, which was caught on TV film, and has often been used by critics to ridicule his apparently blank face. "My first reaction was anger. Who the hell would do that to America? Then I ...

Former Cheney Aide Addington, Now at Heritage, Driver in Debt Debate ('enforcer of tea party dogma')

With the United States moving closer to a historic debt default, both parties are bringing out the big guns. Democrats have senior administration officials like Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner warning that a failure to strike a deal will push the fragile economy back into recession. Republicans have prominent conservative economists like former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin arguing that any deal should primarily involve spending cuts. But the debate doesn’t simply involve warring economists. Instead, one of the louder voices belongs to David Addington, the architect of the George W. Bush administration’s harsh interrogation policies and a former chief ...

After Slamming Obama For Being ‘Anti-Manufacturing,’ Gingrich Campaign Caught Selling T-Shirts Made In El Salvador

In the latest embarrassment for Newt Gingrich’s floundering presidential campaign, an ABC producer discovered that Gingrich’s campaign T-shirts are not being made in America, but in El Salvador, even as Gingrich spends his time on the campaign trail calling American manufacturing “crucial” to the economy’s future. Gingich has also slammed the Obama administration for being “anti-manufacturing.” According to the producer, Gingrich had originally said he would make sure his campaign gear was manufactured in America. Gingrich was confronted about the gear on the campaign trail as he awkwardly held up one of the shirts in question: ABC: I just picked up that ...

House Republican leaders have abruptly delayed a vote on a bill extending the government's debt limit and cutting federal spending One House aide said the vote would occur later Thursday evening. It was initially unclear why the vote, which had appeared imminent, was postponed. The House was nearing the end of its debate on the legislation when Republicans suddenly shifted gears. They instead moved to a bill renaming a post office in Peoria, Ill. GOP leaders have been laboring to line up the 216 votes the debt bill would need to pass the House, and they have encountered opposition from some conservatives. There are 240 Republicans in the House. Few if any Democrats are expected to ...

Pfc. Nasser Abdo, the 21-year-old soldier arrested Thursday in connection with an alleged plot to attack Fort Hood, had ties to a number of prominent anti-war organizations, including Iraq Veterans Against the War and Courage to Resist, Raw Story can confirm. Abdo, who went AWOL from duty over the July 4 weekend after being charged with possession of child pornography, was an applicant for conscientious objector (CO) status, supported by the Oakland-based GI rights group Courage to Resist. In turn, his efforts to resist deployment were supported by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), one of the best-known anti-war groups in the nation. He was arrested Thursday outside Fort Hood, in ...
