Top Ten Liberal Absurdities

1 Comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

  • Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.
  • Only in America could liberals claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly an 18% black federal workforce when only 12% of the population is black.
  • Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
  • Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
  • Only in America would liberals make people who legally want to become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while they push for legislation that would let anyone who enters the country illegally to become American citizens by the stroke of the President’s pen.
  • Only in America could liberals believe that balancing the budget and sticking to the Constitution could be thought to be “extremism.”
  • Only in America do liberals believe that you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check and enter the Democratic National Convention but not to vote.
  • Only in America could liberals demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas goes up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of what a company makes producing running shoes (Nike).
  • Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
  • Only in America could the people who pay 86% of all income taxes be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

An Economic ‘Plan’?

1 Comment

This is by Thomas Sowell in Town Hall.

Thomas is correct the government needs to do nothing.

I hope Mitt Romney‘s plan is to stay out-of-the-way.

Mitt needs to remove the boot of government off the neck of government.

Then stand back a watch the economy grow and employment increase.

Clinton and Obama are wrong in their assessment of what needs done.

Former president Bill Clinton told the Democratic National Convention that Barack Obama has a plan to rescue the economy, and only the fact that the Republicans stood in his way has stopped him from getting the economy out of the doldrums.

From all this, and much else that is said in the media and on the campaign trail, you might think that the economy requires government intervention to revive and create jobs. It is Beltway dogma that the government has to “do something.”

History tells a different story. For the first 150 years of this country’s existence, the federal government felt no great need to “do something” when the economy turned down. Over that long span of time, the economic downturns were neither as deep nor as long lasting as they have been since the federal government decided that it had to “do something” in the wake of the stock market crash of 1929, which set a new precedent.

One of the last of the “do nothing” presidents was Warren G. Harding. In 1921, under President Harding, unemployment hit 11.7 percent — higher than it has been under President Obama. Harding did nothing to get the economy stimulated.

Far from spending more money to try to “jump start” the economy, President Harding actually reduced government spending, as the tax revenues declined during the economic downturn.

This was not a matter of absent-mindedly neglecting the economy. President Harding deliberately rejected the urging of his own Secretary of Commerce, Herbert Hoover, to intervene.

The 11.7 percent unemployment rate in 1921 fell to 6.7 percent in 1922, and then to 2.4 percent in 1923. It is hard to think of any government intervention in the economy that produced such a sharp and swift reduction in unemployment as was produced by just staying out of the way and letting the economy rebound on its own.

Bill Clinton loudly proclaimed to the delegates to the Democratic National Convention that no president could have gotten us out of the recession in just one term.

But history shows that the economy rebounded out of a worse unemployment situation in just two years under Harding, who simply let the market revive on its own, as it had done before, time and time again for more than a century.

Something similar happened under Ronald Reagan. Unemployment peaked at 9.7 percent early in the Reagan administration. Like Harding and earlier presidents, Reagan did nothing, despite outraged outcries in the media.

The economy once again revived on its own. Three years later, unemployment was down to 7.2 percent — and it kept on falling, as the country experienced twenty years of economic growth with low inflation and low unemployment.

The Obama party line is that all the bad things are due to what he inherited from Bush, and the few signs of recovery are due to Obama’s policies beginning to pay off. But, if the economy has been rebounding on its own for more than 150 years, the question is why it has been so slow to recover under the Obama administration.

The endless proliferation of anti-business interventions by government, and the sight of more of the same coming over the horizon from Barack Obama’s appointees in the federal bureaucracies, creates the one thing that has long stifled economic activity in countries around the world — uncertainty about what the rules of the game are, and the unpredictability of how specifically those rules will continue to change in a hostile political environment.

Both history and contemporary data show that countries prosper more when there are stable and dependable rules, under which people can make investments without having to fear unpredictable new government interventions before these investments can pay off.

A great myth has grown up that President Franklin D. Roosevelt saved the American economy with his interventions during the Great Depression of the 1930s. But a 2004 economic study concluded that government interventions had prolonged the Great Depression by several years. Obama is repeating policies that failed under FDR.

Despite demands that Mitt Romney spell out his plan for reviving the economy, we can only hope that Governor Romney plans to stop the government from intervening in the economy and gumming up the works, so that the economy can recover on its own.

Satan’s Found His Political Party – The Democrats!

Leave a comment

 

This is from Clash Daily.

There is no doubt in my mind the DemocRat Party has sold its soul to Lucifer.

Look at what the stand for legalizing homosexual marriages.

 Unlimited murder of unborn babies and the murder of partial birth abortion.

Saying the murdering followers of the pedophile Mohammed is equal to Christianity.

Adding  God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital to the platform was booed loudly.

Henry Scoop Jackson, John F.Kennedy and Daniel Patrick Moynihan would not be welcome.

 

Former President Bill Clinton’s Democratic convention speech includes this line: “The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in?” Good question.

It’s hard for me to believe that the majority of Americans want to live in a country where there is no God except the State, homosexual marriage is just like heterosexual marriage, abortion is a form of birth control, and Islam is on an equal footing with America’s Christian heritage.

The majority of Americans believe in God, and yet the Democrats removed any mention of Him from their platform. It’s not that it was an oversight; it was a conscious effort since “God-given potential” was in the 2008 platform. When an attempt was made by Ted Strickland (D-OH) to reintroduce God, all hell broke looseHe was booed:

Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. The move came after criticism from Republicans. Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

Notice that the criticism didn’t come from the Democrats.

The Democrat leadership ramrodded the new language over vociferous opposition. Keep in mind that a number of speakers mentioned God. This only goes to show that the Democrat convention is more theater than reality. The convention is designed to play to the ignorance of the voting population. They say one thing in public to get votes but do something else legislatively. Their voting public doesn’t care as long as the checks, condoms, and birth control pills keep coming.

Since every state that has voted on homosexual marriage defeated the measure — 31 states as of this writing – it’s a wonder that the Democrats see homosexual marriage as a winning issue. More than 8 percent of the delegates at the convention are homosexuals (more than 500 out and proud sexually incongruous delegates) — eight times the homosexual population in America.

And while God was put out of the Democrat party platform, homosexual marriage was put in. The Democrats became the first major U.S. political party to endorse gay marriage, and this happened in a state where voters approved a state constitutional referendum limiting marriage to heterosexuals.

Steelworker Featured at DNC Didn’t Work for Bain

Leave a comment

 

This is from ABC News.

Is it possible the news media is going to start doing their jobs?

The answer is a definite “No!”

The media will continue to be in the tank for Obama and the Democrat‘s.

So now and then the media will commit randoms acts of journalism.

 

The Democratic National Convention on Wednesday featured three speakers billed as “former employees of companies controlled by Bain Capital.”

They each told compelling stories about jobs lost, allegedly because of the actions of Bain under Romney’s leadership.

But it turns out one of those employees never actually worked for a company controlled by Bain Capital.
David Foster was supposedly one of those former employees on the convention schedule. He told the story about 750 steelworkers who lost their jobs when the Bain-controlled company GST steel filed for bankruptcy in the early 1990s.

“In 2001, with GST bankrupt and Romney still CEO of Bain, I stood in front of hundreds of steelworkers in their 50s and 60s, and retirees in their 70s and 80s, and told them Romney and Bain had broken their promises. Jobs, vacation pay, severance, health insurance and pension benefits that were promised — they were all gone,” he said. Read his full speech here

Watch our ABC News/Yahoo News Convention Show LIVE tonight, 7-11:30 PM HERE.

But Foster, according to a former spokesman for GST Steel, never actually worked for the company.
“David Foster was never an employee of GST Steel’s Kansas City plant. He was employed by the United Steelworkers of America as their regional union director to represent GST Steel, but was not employed at our facility,” according to BC Huselton, who was head of HR at GST.
Instead, Foster was a union organizer, who negotiated for workers that did work for the company.
Foster explained in his remarks that he was an organizer during his dealings with GST Steel. But it is not clear from the remarks that he never worked for a company controlled by Bain.
Foster was prominently featured in an Obama campaign video, “Romney economics,” where he is identified as lead negotiator for workers at GST Steel. In the video he explains that Bain executives took bonuses even as the company flailed.
Politifact rated that Obama video “mostly true.” Read their assessment.
An Obama campaign TV ad based on the story of a GST worker who suggests that his wife’s death from cancer years later was due in part to losing health insurance when the plant closed got a “false” from Politifact and drew criticism for being misleading.
But the Romney campaign has released its own version of what happened at GST Steel. The video features a former executive, Huselton, who says that Bain’s actions actually saved the company.
“There’s this vampire story that Bain comes in and shows it’s teeth and sucks the blood out of the operation,” says Huselton. “It’s really quite the opposite. We went out looking for a blood donor. Bain came in, and the way I look at it actually gave us a blood transfusion.”

Democrat Says “Romney Should Be Ashamed of His Roots”

37 Comments

 

This is from Political  Outcast.

Let’s talk about roots to be ashamed of.

Joseph P.Kennedy Sr. was a rum runner,he had numerous extra marital affairs.

Joe was a Nazi sympathizer and lost his ambassadorship to The Court of St.James.

Bobby had an affair with Jackie while she was in the process of burying his brother John.

John had numerous affairs including bringing women to the White house.

Ted was responsible for the murder of Mary Jo Kopechne. 

Then you have the gigolo  John”Lurch”Kerry.

The sexual predator William Jefferson Blythe Clinton.

Compare this to the charity work of  Mitt Romney.

On the second night of the Democratic National Convention, Delaware Governor Jack Markell gave a speech that was focused on small businesses. It was as compelling a speech as has been typical for the DNC so far — stiff and cookie-cutter. But there was one comment he made at the beginning of his speech that was very curious.

Markell, being the governor of Delaware, made a remark about Vice President Joe Biden, also from that state:

Joe has never forgotten his middle-class roots or the lessons he learned. And you know what? Mitt Romney hasn’t forgotten his roots or the lessons he’s learned either. And that’s what worries me about Mitt Romney.

Markell believes Biden has kept in touch with his roots, which he calls middle-class, and it is for this fact — or let’s call it a belief — that Markell sang his praises.

Then Markell said Romney also has not forgotten his own roots. This, Markell said, is something to worry about.

And what are Mr. Romney’s roots? It has been one of the top priorities of the Democrats to remind us daily that Romney’s roots are wealthy ones. His parents were rich, you see. That Mitt Romney donated his inheritance to charity is, according to these same Democrats, no matter.

Democrats insist that in their playbook there can be found no pages concerning class warfare. Well, at the DNC on Wednesday night, Gov. Jack Markell evidently had taken those pages out and read from them at his podium.

For what are the implications of Markell’s disparagement of Romney’s roots if not the disparagement of his wealth? Markell, with the full support of the audience at the DNC, made it explicit: Romney should not remember his roots, because his roots grew from the independent successes of Romney’s parents. Romney grew up rich, and for this, Jack Markell, a governor in one of these United States, tells his fellow Americans that Romney should feel a deep, burdensome shame.

This is the fundamental, undeniable truth about the Democratic Party, as admitted at the Democratic convention in casual, almost imperceptible passing in a speech: they believe that those on the lower rungs of economic status should be proud of their lack of money, and that those on the upper rungs of economic status should turn their backs on their successes.

If I could, I’d ask the undecided voters and the Independents if the Democratic Party is in touch with their beliefs. If so, then this is no longer America, and should Obama win re-election, we will reap what we sow.

[The Democrats should be reminded that they are the party of the Kennedy’s and John Kerry. What about their economic roots? And one more thing from the Delaware Department of State Division of Corporations

“Close to a million business entities have made Delaware their legal home. Furthermore, while the sheer number of corporations organized in Delaware is significant, more significant still is the fact that so many large and important corporations are incorporated in Delaware. Of the corporations that make up the Fortune 500, more than one-half are incorporated in Delaware. It is no wonder that Delaware has become almost a brand name for the “business” of serving as the official home for corporations.”

I wonder what Gov. Markell has to say about the inherited wealth of one of his state’s favorite sons — Pierre “Peter” du Pont IV? Apparently there’s a lot of shame to go around. GD]

DNC PROCEEDS WITH 2-HOUR ISLAMIC ‘JUMAH’ PRAYERS (AND YOU WON‘T BELIEVE WHO’S INVITED)

1 Comment

 

This is from The Blaze.

The DNC has made it clear Christian Prayer is not welcome.

Yet the followers of the pedophile Mohamed are welcome to pray.

The DemocRat party is keeping up the tradition of oppression.

The party was the author of Jim Crow Laws.

Now the DemocRats are pushing Sharia.

The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.

Democratic National Convention to Host Islamic Jumah Prayers with Jibril Hough, Siraj Wahhaj

The event is being promoted on the official Charlottein2012.com page*

Watch the promotional video via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which claims it is hosting the event “at the Democratic National Convention.”

The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:

Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the Friday prayers and Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said the purpose of the event is to hold political parties accountable for the issues faced by Muslim-Americans.

In particular, the event will target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment.

And while Muslim-Americans undeniably face distinct challenges, those who are well-informed on the dangers of radical Islam are expressing their doubts.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracywrote:

The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

 

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims.  Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

[…]

Their jummah (group) prayer isabout empowering their Islamist and MB sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

The mosque of Jibril Hough, mentioned by Dr. Jasser, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust, which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial as one of the entities “who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

Siraj Wahhaj, the “Grand Imam” for Jumah at the DNC, is often considered a “moderate” because he was the first Muslim to give an invocation in the U.S. Congress, but as Robert Spencer notes, he has a number of troubling ties to dangerous radicals.  In the early 1990′s the man reportedly sponsored talks by “the Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman in New York and New Jersey mosques, and told his followers that the United States will fall unless it “accepts the Islamic agenda.”

Wahhaj elaborated, according to bestselling author Brigitte Gabriel, to say: “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.”

He continued: “Take my word.  If 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”

When an imam like Siraj Wahhaj says “it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quranwe need to speak up!” Dr. Jasser reiterated in response, adding that Americans “should be concerned” if this is who the DNC is “consorting with.”

Robert Spencer speculates that the Democrat National Committee is simply so “in thrall to multiculturalism” that “few, if any” are even aware of the radical connections.

“To raise any concerns about such a speaker would be ‘Islamophobic,’ violating every rule of the anti-American, anti-Western ethos that prevails among so many Democrats today,” Spencer writes.

He concluded: “There is about as much chance of that as there is of the Democrats ditching Obama and nominating David Horowitz as their candidate for President of the United States.”

*The “Charlotte in 2012” page was established by the city of Charlotte to help coordinate the DNC. It advertises itself as “the official location for all the latest news, information and ways to get involved.” It is also the official website for the host committee. Additionally, all events listed on the site have to go through an approval process.

UPDATE:

Though Cardinal Dolan was originally not going to speak at the DNC, on Monday it was announced that he will now be giving the closing prayer.
