Is there a coordinated, or at least collective gangbanging of Barry going on? We can expect it from Monica, from Rush Limbaugh, Hannity et al. But the Clintons, the gaybians, the Congressional Black Hack Caucus, former adulators like real estate mogul Mort Zucherman, the Pakistani Rage Boys, the Wall Street Riot Kiddies, and now even from Germany, where so many in their Socialist Media Land see Obama as "relief from Der Amerikkkan Cowboys"?

Germany slams ‘stupid’ US plans to boost EU rescue fund
Germany and America were on a collision course on Tuesday night over the handling of Europe’s debt crisis after Berlin savaged plans to boost the EU rescue fund as a "stupid idea" and told the White House to sort out its own mess before giving gratuitous advice to others.

I wouldn't look too deep into Solyndra if I were you, Princess; you just might find obvious fascist malfeasance and planning behind the mismanagement.

Solyndra was a Trojan Horse, courtesy of, you guessed it, Big Oil.

And there are many other traps out there, waiting to be sprung.

But this planet WILL get off oil, and soon, or it will not survive.

Buck,

Imagine if the G.O.P. ever wises up to the race-baiting, 'fascist'-baiting slugs behind the Obot Machine? Notice how these self-righteous creeps are always playing their "We da goodies, you da fascist' routine?

I have tried to wake up the Goopers. It's a struggle. I have documented how Socialism and Fascism are joined at the hip---a fact that even troll trash try to avoid like vampires flee from sunlight. These half-wits will give you a little quote from Mussolini etc about Mussolini, a lifelong radical socialist, not wanting to execute the capitalists and businessmen---like their Bolshevik faves did in Russia, Mussolini instead wanting to make use of the capitalists etc. From this the little half-wits will yell, "See! See! Da Fascists wasn't socialists, they was capitalists!" The jerks can't even compute that lifelong Marxist Obama has more to do with using rich corporate cronies than Mussolini ever did. So, by their definition, Obama should be classified as a "fascist." (I'm not stopping them)

These jerks also try to pretend that the Nazi National SOCIALISM had nothing to do with socialism. Typical Orwellian liars and dufuses. Fact: Hitler had everything to do with Socialism. Of course, the Goopers are too dim and feckless to understand why knowing this matters in today's US political discourse. That's how they get rolled by these thugs. Even Monica, who must know better, tends to avoid the historical record and facts, despite her history orientation.

Well, I've had enough of the troll trash she hasn't swept out of here yet, even while she lets her Bush and Cheney be accused by these vultures of taking down the Twin Towers on 9.11. Here's a little sample of why the Left tries to suppress the historical record like a plague (or like Obama supporesses his school records) It illustrates exactly my premise: Socialism and Fascism are siblings, joined at the hip.

//////Using a farrago of previously unpublished statistics, Aly describes in detail a social system larded with benefits —open only to Aryan comrades, naturally. To “achieve a truly socialist division of personal assets,” he writes, Hitler implemented a variety of interventionist economic policies, including price and rent controls, exorbitant corporate taxes, frequent “polemics against landlords,” subsidies to German farmers as protection “against the vagaries of weather and the world market,” and harsh taxes on capital gains, which Hitler himself had denounced as “effortless income.”///

The liberal side of Reagan

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/2003/0301.green.html

Reagan also vastly expanded one of the largest federal domestic programs, Social Security. Before becoming president, he had often openly mused, much to the alarm of his politically sensitive staff, about restructuring Social Security to allow individuals to opt out of the system--an antecedent of today's privatization plans. At the start of his administration, with Social Security teetering on the brink of insolvency, Reagan attempted to push through immediate draconian cuts to the program. But the Senate unanimously rebuked his plan, and the GOP lost 26 House seats in the 1982 midterm elections, largely as a result of this overreach.

The following year, Reagan made one of the greatest ideological about-faces in the history of the presidency, agreeing to a $165 billion bailout of Social Security. In almost every way, the bailout flew in the face of conservative ideology. It dramatically increased payroll taxes on employees and employers, brought a whole new class of recipients--new federal workers--into the system, and, for the first time, taxed Social Security benefits, and did so in the most liberal way: only those of upper-income recipients. (As an added affront to conservatives, the tax wasn't indexed to inflation, meaning that more and more people have gradually had to pay it over time.)

By expanding rather than scaling back entitlements, Reagan--and Newt Gingrich after him--demonstrated that conservatives could not and would not launch a frontal assault on Social Security, effectively conceding that these cherished New Deal programs were central features of the American polity

No matter how HARD the right tries to claim Facsism is a liberal ideaolgy. IT is a RIGHT WING ONE!

Just like his racism is only a liberal mentality.

http://www.remember.org/guide/Facts.root.nazi.html

Totalitarian regimes differ from older concepts of dictatorship or tyranny. Totalitarian regimes seek to establish complete political, social and cultural control, whereas dictatorships seek limited, typically political, control. Two types of totalitarianism can sometimes be distinguished: Nazism and Fascism which evolved from "right-wing" extremism.

Right-wing totalitarian movements have generally drawn their popular support primarily from middle classes seeking to maintain the economic and social status quo.

Seems that the only one whose trying to push Nazism as a liberal mindset is Gringoman.

Herman Cain: "I could not support Rick Perry"

LA:In this society of relativism and constant change, it is simply amazing how opposition to illegal immigration and to the legalization of illegal aliens has become an unmovable position on the Republican right. No Republican presidential candidate can get around this barrier any more (though McCain with despicable dishonesty managed to do so in 2008). Any candidate who is weak on border security or law enforcement, or who gives the slightest sign of leaning toward amnesty under rhetorical cover of opposing it (and Republican voters have become hawk-eyed in this respect), will be unacceptable to the GOP, period.
Indeed, anti-illegal immigration is such a firm dogma now among Republicans that second tier (but rising) candidate Herman Cain lays down the law and announces that he could not support first-tier (but sinking) Rick Perry because of the latter's GW Bush-like positions on illegal immigration. Politico reports:


Herman Cain said he could not support Rick Perry if he is the Republican nominee for president, citing a "basic fundamental difference of opinion" on border security.
"Today I could not support Rick Perry as the nominee for a host of reasons," Cain told CNN host Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday.

"Him being soft on securing the border is one of the reasons. I feel very strongly about the need to secure the border for real, the need to enforce the laws that are already there, the need to promote the path to citizenship that's already there," Cain said.
In his book, "This is Herman Cain! My Road to the White House," Cain slams Washington for an "inability" to deal with illegal immigration.

"It must occur legally, through the front door, not the side door or the back door," Cain writes in the book, out next week.

Cain, who supported Mitt Romney in 2008, said he could support the former Massachusetts governor again if he committed to repeal Obamacare soon after taking office.

"If he stuck to that commitment, I could support him. But if in any way he wanted to compromise and go for a mandate, I couldn't support him," Cain said, referencing the issue considered Romney's most significant political vulnerability. "But I believe that he has backed off that and he's saying that he would repeal Obamacare."

Buck,

Got to hand it to the pols. They keep outsmarting the Americanos. Look at them now. Cain and Romneycare piling on Perry over the border. Romneycare has no record of dealing with the border. Cain has no elected record period, border or no. But does that stop them from bloviating at Perry who's been in the 1200 mile trenches of a border with Mexico? Does that stop them from jazzing away, as if any Governor can control the border no matter what he does, it being a Federal issue? And does that stop the vote cattle from being impressed moo-ing "Mooooo--Moooooo----Ohhhhhhh---Ohhhhhh!"

Yet these pols seem confident they can get away with it. The word is out. It's not too hard to outsmart the Americano electorate. (Half the rightwing thinks Perry is a "traitor" for not wanting a crazy 1800-mile fence.)Even right now they can't see how Cain is cleverly massaging Romney against Perry, grooming himself for a possible Romney=Cain ticket. These slick pols have to move fast. They would know that Perry, a rugged campaigner over the long haul, very likely has to be declared "finished" ASAP. Try to get him out of the way fast. He has to be seen as "finished" by a Media Sound-Bite Event that SLIME calls a "debate." (They wouldn't dare do what REDSTATE is suggesting, put Romney and Perry head to head for one hour and let them go at it. That would be a real confrontation, in depth, and therefore it must not be.)

It's still pretty easy to outsmart the Americanos. Oh, sure, they catch up with the pols sooner or later. Almost always it's later, after they've been gulled once again and it's too late.

PS They and SLIME absolutelY must try to knock Perry out now, otherwise....the cowboy will come back riding hard, they'll hear the hoofbeats kicking up dust clouds on the trail, and all bets will be off, even if Romney decides Cain is his 2012 life preserver, and especially if Rubio goes for the guy fluent in Spanish.

They are trying to change laws on HOW people CAN VOTE!
Changeing early voting laws. Since most early voters vote Democrat.
In the county of Denver, people have to mail in their ballots. So, the Republican Secretary of State is sueing the city and county of Denver. So, that only those who voted in 2010. can vote in 2012.Which was a strong GOP county.

So, the Republican party. Can't win on our merits. So, we will change the voting laws to make it harder for those who VOTE AGANIST US. TO VOTE!

Hey DJ,

This Solyndragate outrage is blowing up in the Obot faces, although their Obamasuck Media is dutifully keeping it as muffled as possible. Observers are calling it every bit as criminal as Watergate, which was about a third-rate burglary. This is about the "green jobs" scam, half a billion dollars disappeared, sleazy cobnnections all the way up to the WH. And now the Marxocrats are doubling down, with additional "stimulus" and slush funds doled out to TWO more of these "green" scams, one of them to Nancy Pelosi relative!

Question? Why are the GOP "candidates" so quiet? Why aren;t they taking it to the Venture Socialist in the WH? Even if CNN and Fox were derelict at the Sound-Bite Circus they call a "debate," what is preventing the G.O.P. "candidates" from flinging this at the WH right now?

Hey, DJ, are you willing to call out Bachmann, Paul, Cain and Romney?

Posted by: thebuckstopshere | September 28, 2011 at 10:56 PM

Buck,

Barring an entry from NJ Governor "Doughnuts" Christie, it looks like Club Gooper's choice is Romneycare. Libworld too will promote Romneycare for the G.O.P. They won't get out their long knives and help unleash the latent anti-Mormonism in the land until and unless Romneycare gets the RINO nod. They know that Romney too has out-flip-flopped John Kerry, and will not go for Obama's jugular the way that Perry very well might. They know that Romney, unlike Perry, will run more as a John McCain "gentleman."

Yes, they will work hard in rounding up the vote cattle for Romneycare. They know the herd will tend to take Romneycare at his word when he tells them he'll repeal Obamacare. They might herd enough, but I'm still not convinced that they will, even if the odds favor them in late September 2011, over a year before E Day.

Still too unpredictable. Romneycare, even at his slickest (and he is slicker than ever after so much training, and they say he's pulling in more Wall Street shekels than Obama right now) is not yet a sure thing. And watch Perry. He now knows how much these sound-bite circuses they call "debates" count. If he's still out to win (and I think he is) he will come riding back hard. They all know that, which is why they're all trying to knock him out early. Even now after being "knocked down" in the last so-called "debate," he's actually still the front-runner nationally. That gets overlooked in the media gloom and doom about him (which is part of the hope to knock him out early)Yes, the gap with Romney has narrowed, but he's still ahead of Romney when you add up all the polls---even if nobody would realize that right now, from the Obamasuck media.

ps. I thought the entry of "Doughnuts" Christie would hurt Romney. Limbaugh thinks it would hurt Perry. What think you?

Off topic but interesting: Herman Cain is now a Presidential candidate with significant polling power, refer to:

http://www.foxnews.com/interactive/politics/2011/09/28/fox-news-poll-gop-race-top-tier/

Talk about “fighting fire with fire”. How do you defeat a dark skinned, silver tongued demagogue while the morally corrupt MSM solidly supports him and is constantly parroting “racism”?

Answer: Nominate a black conservative.

Too bad that Perry appears to be going down in flames. Truth to tell, I think he would have made a good President. The system attaches too much importance to public speaking and debating skill. Thomas Jefferson was a terrible public speaker (he had a speech impediment). Jefferson wrote his own speeches and had someone else read them. Obama is arguably one of our worst presidents but is a brilliant public speaker. Skill at public speaking does not necessarily correlate to executive skill.

@12 Eggplant.

The only reason Perry “appears to be going down in flames” is that is the meme the entrenched want the disenfranchised to believe. Perry is the real deal. He will make a good President. I’m not counting him out. If he’s tough as I believe he is, he’ll scrap his way back.

What is interesting is the dancing going on with Christie, who really isn’t ready for the Presidency, and Palin, who may be ready but faded. I’ve thought that Christie is Palin’s foil. He’ll dance until they’re sure she’s not jumping in.

Way too much intrigue behind the scenes in this election cycle. Too many rich and powerful people are trying very hard to keep Palin and Perry out of contention, or just out. You have to ask why.
September 28, 2011 - 4:08 pm

gringoNOTE: That's not obvious? Obama and Romney have the Wall Street money, with Obama also having the union slush funds for his services rendered. Right-to-work Perry is still largely dependent on Texas money, which is not part of the Obamasuck Media/Wall Street complex. Follow the credit cards.

"Democrats are seen as being pro-regulatory, and more willing to enact laws against Wall Street and laws against CEOs," said Don Luskin, chief investment officer at Trend Macrolytics.

But here's Wall Street's strange little irony -- studies show the stock market performs better and tends to be less volatile when Democrats are in power.


This discrepancy was explored recently in a study by two finance professors at the University of California at Los Angeles, Pedro Santa-Clara and Rossen Valkanov.

According to their paper, entitled, "The Presidential Puzzle: Political Cycles and the Stock Market" and published in the October issue of the Journal of Finance, stock market returns are on average about 5 percent higher when the White House is run by a Democrat than during Republican rule.

Looking at the 72-year period between 1927 and 1999, the study shows that a broad stock index, similar to the S&P 500, returned approximately 11 percent more a year on average under a Democratic president versus safer, three-month Treasurys. By comparison, the index only returned 2 percent more a year versus the T-bills when Republicans were in office."

Seems people are having their doubts!

Dear Friend,
I need your help getting the word out on Rick Perry.

Right now Perry is the Republican frontrunner for president--we can't let him win! When it comes to immigration the man is George W. Bush's clone! If Perry gets to the White House we'll be back to fighting massive blanket amnesty for illegal aliens. You can count on it!

At last week's presidential debate Perry had the audacity to call those of us who oppose in-state tuition for illegal aliens HEARTLESS! Only those without hearts, he said, would be against his 2001 signature legislation which made Texas the first state to give in-state tuition to illegal aliens. This phony compassion didn't cost Perry a penny--but it's been costing the taxpayers $100,000 for every illegal alien who took him up on this sweet deal.
The delegates in the hall were astounded at his position and his arrogance, but it came as no surprise to me. Perry has long shown himself to be a name-calling, open border, pro-amnesty politician.

Four years ago I ran for president to pressure the Republican candidates to take a hard line against illegal immigration. For this Perry called me a racist! I called his office and demanded an apology and got nowhere.

That's when I started to take a closer look at Perry and found an alarming pro-illegal immigrant consistency to both the man's words and record.

Perry is for open borders and against building a fence: In a speech in Mexico in 2007, Perry said he supported completely open borders, calling for the "free flow of individuals between these two countries who want to work and want to be an asset to our country and to Mexico." And he came out against building a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border. When in Mexico ...

Perry is for massive blanket amnesty: In 2006 Perry came out in favor of blanket amnesty for illegal immigrants, albeit without citizenship, supporting "a guest worker program that takes undocumented workers off the black market and legitimizes their economic contribution."

Perry opposes Arizona's tough anti-illegal immigration law: Perry said of Arizona's tough anti-illegal immigration law, SB 1070, "I have concerns with portions of the law passed in Arizona and believe it would not be the right direction for Texas." [LA replies: I believe Perry said in the recent debate that he had Texas join the states intervening on behalf of Arizona in the federal suit against SB 1070. That may be true. But what it apparently means is that he's against the federal government's suit against Arizona's law, not that he supports Arizona's law. But he wanted the audience to believe that he supports the law.]

Perry opposes E-Verify--even for state employees: Last year Perry spoke out against using E-Verify even to prevent illegal immigrants from getting jobs as state employees, who get their paychecks from the taxpayers. He insisted it "would not make a hill of beans' difference." Maybe not to Perry it wouldn't--but it would mean a world of difference to some unemployed American workers and their families!

The Governor is running his whole campaign on all the jobs he has created in Texas and says he'll do the same when he is President. Let's hope not! Of the jobs Perry created since 2007, 81% went to immigrants, 40% to illegal immigrants!!

We can't afford Rick Perry as President. We need someone who will fight to get Americans back to work and our country back on track. Amnesty, in-state tuition, and jobs for illegals, along with open borders, aren't part of that formula! And neither is Rick Perry.

We can beat Obama next year-but we must do it with a strong leader who will secure our borders, enforce our laws, and never give amnesty to illegal immigrants. Our future depends on it! And Rick Perry will do none of that!

Please help me get the word out about Rick Perry. America can't afford four more years of a politically pandering, pro-illegal immigrant president-whether they are Republican or Democrat! We need our laws enforced now!

Team America and I are dedicated to studying every presidential candidate's record and words and will do everything we can to see that Americans elect a president who will stop the invasion across our southern border.

Thanks you for all you do for the cause. God Bless you and God Bless America.

Your Friend

Tom Tancredo
