Must-See Clip of the Day: Republican Stupidity on Display Courtesy of Bob Corker. No Wonder We Are Losing.

If you have time, please still contact your Senator and a few more and let them know you want them to vote NO TO CLOTURE. That is the vote that counts on Friday.  This is just disheartening.  Some people make mistakes and correct them.  The worst mistakes are the ones that are not identified to begin with. I know we have a lot to choose from, but this one is a doozy.  Senator Corker tells Ted Cruz he is confused. I can’t believe Ted Cruz is the one criticized and these Senators continue to be re-elected for years. Tennessee, you have two who need to go!  Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker.

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin: Buy A Hybrid Car or DIE!

By Gary P Jackson

Sometimes you just have to marvel at the incredible stupidity coming out of our nation’s capital. Democrats like Dick Durbin are a constant source of hilarity, which would be OK, if this wasn’t so serious.

In the wake of the severe tornadoes in the Dallas, Texas area Durbin, as all of the good little socialists do, blames the natural phenomenon of …. wait for it …. global warming.

The answer? Spending more money we don’t have, and giving up even more Liberty and Freedom, of course.

This loon actually said “It’s your money or your life.

You can’t make this stuff up.

From Real Clear Politics:

Sen. Dick Durbin reacts to the tornadoes in Dallas, Texas earlier this week. Durbin calls for more laws regulating carbon output while he sends a dire warning that we must convert to hybrid cars or lose our life. Durbin says we must spend money now to fix the problem.

It’s your money or your life,” he said a press conference. “We are either going to dedicate ourselves to a cleaner, more livable planet and accept the initial investment necessary or we’re going to pay a heavier price in terms of loss of human life, damage and costs associated with it.

Someone tell this nimrod that tornadoes have been around longer than people. And automobiles. And so-called “greenhouse gases.”

In an earlier post I wondered why we don’t have minimum I.Q. and competency requirements for government workers. It seems we should have these requirements for elected officials as well.

Can We Stop with The Freakin’ Conspiracy Theories and Focus on The Task at Hand?

By Gary P Jackson

Folks, it’s time to stop all this nonsense. All of these conspiracy theories need to stop. It wastes time, distracts people, and is counterproductive.

We have a lot of serious work to do, and what are many doing? Running around spreading rumors, creating conspiracies that the fix is in, and the Establishment is manipulating events to help The Great Satan™ Mitt Romney.

How completely and totally idiotic.

The latest supposed conspiracy?

Found votes for Mitt Romney in Iowa. Give me a break. Yeah, there was some concern over some lost, but already counted, ballots last night. Things happen.

Here’s what I learned last night. Iowa has what might be one of the most transparent processes out there. Senior members from every campaign are there to observe the process of counting the votes, and can step in if they feel there is any hanky-panky. After the finally tally was announced, all of the campaigns were satisfied the numbers were real.

And yet, I look around today and the conspiracies are flying! The Establishment is trying to force Mitt Romney [The Great Satan™] on us all!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!!!!!!

Folks know what I think of Mitt. He’s not someone who I would prefer to be our nominee. But he IS running a professional campaign. Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry are not. They can’t even do the most basic of things, like getting on a ballot. Newt is so disorganized he’s getting on some ballots by the skin of his teeth, while missing others outright.

I’ve talked about the tiring, silly, unproductive conspiracy nonsense coming out of Virginia here and here.

The next opportunity for the reality challenged to create some wild theories is Illinois, where, with only a couple of days to go, Mitt Romney is the ONLY candidate to have submitted the proper paperwork and met the requirements to be on the ballot. How is this anyone’s fault other than the candidates that don’t have their acts together?

Look, there IS an Establishment, and they do have an agenda, but they aren’t all powerful. In fact, they are mostly a clumsy, feckless bunch of neerdowells. They can certainly do things behind the scenes that can cause trouble, but they aren’t smart enough to pull off what some suggest.

Some people are starting to sound like the unstable nuts who listen to Alex Jones and spend hours on Prison Planet lapping up stories about Build-a-Burgers, FEMA camps, the Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission, and how the Jews use contrails to control our minds.

People need to step back and look at what they are posting around the interwebs, and consider how silly it sounds!

Also, how about considering the Great Satan™ Mitt Romney, someone with vast business experience, someone who turned around the Olympics, was a governor, and has run a presidential campaign before, might be just a tad more competent and detail oriented than Messrs Perry and Gingrich, no matter how wrong some of his ideology may be.

Look, I’m not here to support Mitt’s presidential run. There are several better outcomes I hope for. What I am here to do is tell people to stop acting like Pavlov’s dogs at the mere mention of his name. He’s just a guy running for president, and by far, not the worst, or most dangerous in the field.

Every minute wasted spreading rumors, creating conspiracy theories, and bitching about what Romney is up to, and how unfair it is the other mutts can’t get their own acts together, is a minute that could have been spent working toward sudden, relentless reform!

Of course everyone is going to follow the GOP presidential dog and pony show, but that is a very small part of what must be done.

Presidents come and go. We need to focus on Congress. We have a real opportunity to take back the Senate, and elect actual Conservatives while we are at it. A near record number of seats are up for grabs. Many are democrat seats. Some, seeing the writing on the wall, are already bailing out. Others are easily beatable, IF people focus on that, rather than conspiracy theories!

We need to look at the House as well. We gotta elect more Conservatives. We gotta evaluate the ones we elected in 2010. A lot of the new guys have turned out to be less than impressive. Maybe a primary challenge will light a fire under them!

Lastly, we need to go after every corrupt politician at every level. We need to educate our friends an neighbors as to how bad it is. How deep the corruption goes.

Until every single voter in the country is sufficiently pissed off, and is ready to help us throw them all out, we don’t have time for the conspiracy theory BS.

Need some ideas? Start here. Take a look at this. Do something! Anything! So long as it advances the cause of Liberty and Freedom, and works toward sudden, relentless reform.

If you are going to spend time being involved in politics, do something productive!

Sitting around in chat groups bemoaning the latest wild theory about Romney and the GOP Elite isn’t doing ANYTHING that will help, Revive, Renew, and Restore America!

Either that, or get one of these freakin’ things!

Sarah Palin Crushes Time Magazine Over Their Lies

UPDATED at end of article.

By Gary P Jackson

From Fox Nation:

Sarah Palin’s recent email to Time Magazine Congressional Correspondent Jay Newton-Small started off congenial enough. The mood soon shifted dramatically when Gov. Palin attacked the magazine over the “total lies” that had been published about her. Included in her email is not only a call for a retraction of the false stories, but a demand for an apology to Fox News‘ Sean Hannity and Christina Aguilera who were both included in the story Time ran. The text of the email follows:

Subject: Great job, MSM!

Jay – pls tell your bosses there at Time Magazine thank you for the invitations to attend the upcoming functions. I’ll sure put a lot of thought into those invitations.

Then, have your editors retract Time’s most recent ridiculous lies about me supposedly giving Sean Hannity a radio interview wherein I supposedly talked about Christina Aguilera (that I slammed her for her Nat’l Anthem mistake, and called for her deportation, etc). You guys were fooled into running a fake story that even US Weekly pulled and apologized for their blunder. Total lies – and you guys (once again) even put quotation marks around things I have never uttered.

Then, Time needs to run an apology to Christina along with the retraction. (Add Hannity in your apology, too…those good folks don’t deserve to be in a caustic, untrue story about me.) Thanks much – keep up the great work, Time Magazine.”

Last May, Sarah was named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world. No doubt the invitations she’s talking about are to yet another function where she will be honored.

As Stacy Drake reported last week, both Us Weekly and Time Magazine were duped by a satire website that made up a story about Sarah Palin trashing Christine Aguilera’s performance at the Superbowl, when she flubbed the National Anthem. They claimed she did this in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.

Of course, the story was a lie, and the radio interview never happened. Neither Us Weekly nor Time bothered to contact Sarah or Sean for their “reporting.” They just did what many lazy, corrupt “journalists” do these days: Copy and paste.

These “satire” websites are popping up all over. No doubt due to the success of The Onion News Network. The problem is, more and more so-called “journalists“, as well as some regular people, are thinking these stories are real. In my news alerts there are three or four “satire” pieces a week on Sarah Palin alone!

This isn’t the first time a “journalist” has fallen for one of these fake stories either. They do it often.

When all of the chaos in Egypt started, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow gleefully reported that Sarah Palin was calling for the U.S. to invade the country. For full out war. Of course, Maddow got her information from a “satire” website that put that out story.

Maddow, a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance, and the prototypical MSNBC on air “talent” was called out immediately and ridiculed as she should have been. Her excuse? “Glenn Beck made me do it!” That’s right, the left wing loon blamed it all on Glenn Beck!

Here’s the deal: At this point, if you see something reported by the media, especially something about a Conservative, you should verify it before you believe it. Today’s “journalists” are lazy and corrupt. They will print anything to hurt a Conservative as fact, without doing a second of research, or follow up.They have an agenda, and since their integrity and reputation went out the door long ago, they have nothing to lose by becoming nothing more than propaganda machines.

Just a few weeks back the National Enquirer ran a story that Sarah’s husband was having an affair, something that ended up forcing the Anchorage police department to publicly deny, as the person named, was under police investigation. The Enquirer had no evidence, just an anonymous tip from one of those throw away email accounts. The tipster went by “palinmorals.” We have a few ideas about the who, what, and where, but since we can’t prove it, we’ll leave it at that.

Journalism is dead in America. I mean dead. The media has abused it’s Constitutional right to free speech by being sloppy, corrupt, and pathetic. America deserves better. Much better.

UPDATE:

It must be pointed out that while Sarah sent her email to Time’s Jay Newton-Small, she was NOT the author of the hit piece. In fact Newton-Small was the one who had Time correct their error.

Newton-Small is one of the few writers who has been fair to Sarah. We want to clear this up because we don’t want our readers going off on her. This wasn’t her fault, and in this case she was part of the solution, not the problem.

Thanks,
Gary

The True Goals of “Social Justice” Revealed By Protester At Restoring Honor Rally

By Gary P Jackson

From The Gay Patriot. This loon is trying to say Dr Martin Luther King was all about “social justice.” (He wasn’t) Comically, this cat explains all of this, and truthfully says that yes “social justice” is all about wealth re-distribution. (Communism) For some reason the radicals are finally coming out of the closet, so to speak, and admitting what they are all about.

Ben Howe confronts a Progressive protesting the “Restoring Honor” rally yesterday. Funny how the event was at the Lincoln Memorial…. but the misguided protestor was lamely hanging out by himself at the Washington Monument. Heh.

This is three minutes of pure fun as Ben rips this guy apart and demonstrates the sheer lack of principles of the Progressive movement. At the end, the poor fool stammers and shouts “Well, you’re a RACIST and an IDIOT.” Yup, when their intellectual argument breaks down after three minutes — Progressives pull the race card out as their last gasp of hope.

This is why I don’t associate with the Gay Left — straight, gay or whatever — this protestor exemplifies the Progressive movement; and the Gay Rights crowd are a keystone of the American Progressive movement.

It IS all about redistribution of wealth. But that isn’t “social justice” folks; it’s Marxist-Communism.

Check out Ben Howe Monday night at 8:30pm (eastern) on Gay Patriot’s America on Blog Talk Radio here
