The Audacity Of Corruption

Pat Caddell is spot on!  –

“I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy or not.”

This is a must read, and Pat is 100% correct. In my opinion the North Korean News Agency is more objective than our media, and without an objective, unbiased, hard hitting media – we have no democracy, or more accurately, a representative republic.

    How To Steal the 2012 Election
    X / I / MMXII | pansgold

    1.) Democrats have hired thousands of lawyers and positioned them in voter districts, ready to file suits.

    2.) Democrats will work with groups like ACORN, registering non-citizens and convicted felons and encourage them to vote multiple times. They will watch for recent deaths in local obituaries and then vote again using the dead voter’s name.

    3.) Democrat leftist pollsters over-sample Democrats to show Obama is way ahead of Romney in local polls. They use flawed methodology from past elections.

    4.) Democrats file multiple suits against states that are trying to require proof of voter identification to prove voter citizenship and help prevent multiple voting and I.D. THEFT of the dead.

    5.) Democrats in the printed press and their talking head friends on radio and television continue to bash and trash Romney-Ryan and lie and deny any wrongdoing by Obama or anyone connected with his administration.

    6.) Democrats will use their connections with the union members to contact the homeless and provide transportation to the polls and trade votes for cigarettes and cash as they have done in the past.

    7.) Democrats plan to register as many elderly voters in nursing homes after telling them lies about how Republican’s Plan to cut off their Social Security and Healthcare.

    8.) Democrats plan to file law suits in any district where the vote is even or close claiming voters were intimidated and disenfranchised by voter I.D. laws that already exist or GOP poll watchers.

    9.) Democrats plan to steal this election like they tried in 2000 using liberal courts and to delay the election final results past Romney’s inauguration day and Obama will continue on as _resident until Romney can be sworn in.

    10.) Democrats will cry VOTE FRAUD by Republicans to explain why Obama lost this election by 5 to 10 points. They will cite their phony over sampled polls as proof. The same polls that are constantly being waved in our faces by the liberal media showing this election is over and Romney has no chance to win according “to the polls.”

    Why is it impossible to have an honest conversation about the abysmal state of our media? Pat Caddell was a former aid to Jimmy Carter and a life long Democrat and even he sees the incredible bias towards Obama and the Democrats in the so called “mainstream media”, and yet not one of our resident liberals will dare speak to that issue.

    To not speak out against this is to be complicit and undeserving of living in a representative republic.

    Ironically, one of the resident liberals here is mocking a concerned citizen who is worried that medicare will go broke under Obama – which is actually the truth. Medicare is financially unsustainable in it’s current state, is on the path towards bankruptcy, and Obama has NO PLANS to put forth any reforms. Romney is the only one that has spoke of Medicare reform to ensure is survival for future generations – but the media and liberals like Sarah, watson, bozo, James, mitch, etc. would seemingly rather deflect, distort and lie and help propagandize the issue, giving cover for the Administration, rather than have an adult conversation about it. It’s truly a sad commentary on the current state of politics, and Pat Caddell is one liberal that gets it.

    Here’s another gem from the media:

    Although a CNNMoney survey had economists by a three-to-one margin saying a Mitt Romney presidency would be better for the economy than another term of President Obama, the report’s title said they “reluctantly” chose Romney.

    The media uses the word “reluctantly”, when a far majority of economists say they prefer Romney.

    Here’s a tip to Casper – the word “reluctantly” is subjective and biased. Just FYI.

      Three to one—-isn’t that the same thing as 75%? I guess “three to one” is the mildest way they could put it.

      75% of Economists Interviewed say a Mitt Romney presidency would be better for the economy than another term of President Obama would just be too blunt. Those numbers just jump right out at you. “Three to one” is a little easier to hide in the verbiage.

      “Although a CNNMoney survey had economists by a three-to-one margin saying a Mitt Romney presidency would be better for the economy than another term of President Obama, the report’s title said they “reluctantly” chose Romney.”

      “Nine of 17 top economists surveyed by CNNMoney picked Romney when asked whose election would help the economy grow more. Only three picked Obama.”

      Of course, since three of the economists listed, work on Wall Street, it’s not surprising they would be for Romney or at least be against Obama.

    • Ricorun October 2, 2012 / 12:56 am

      the report’s title said they “reluctantly” chose Romney.

      Forgive me if I’m wrong, but aren’t most of the “Right” wing posters on this blog of a similar opinion? In other words, aren’t they reluctant to choose Romney too?

      It is very clear that to many here that Romney is not ideological enough, not enough of a “constructionist” for their taste. The reality is that the strict “constructionists” lost the debate early in the 19th Century. At its inception (around 1854), the party that is now known as the Republican party accepted many (but not all) of the fundamental precepts of the original Federalist party. That is, they accepted the notion of a strong central bank, a centralized currency, and the notion that the federal government had strong “elastic powers” over inter-state commerce which superseded the individual states, and which included, but which was not limited to, national jurisdiction over the slave trade. ALL of those notions were more Federalist than Jeffersonian. So to the extent that anyone tries to trace the roots of the modern Republican party back to Jefferson is kidding themselves. Weirdly, about the only thing the modern, which is to say the “21st Century” Republican party (in Amazona’s parlance), shares with the Jeffersonians is the emphasis on state’s rights. That emphasis is certainly a modern invention. It wasn’t something that appeared on the original Republican party platform — or any Republican party platform for another 100 plus years. Moreover, I’d say the “21st Century” Republican party is being dishonest because they really don’t want the states to go hog-wild. It’s really a question of degree.

      That said, let me state that I plan to vote for Romney. I liked him better in his incarnation as governor of MA than in his incarnation as a candidate, but that’s my “hope and change” thing — I hope he can change back.

    Since Obama’s inauguration, employers have fired and hired millions of workers during the bust and slow recovery. The net result is that they employed more than 1.7 million more immigrants — but only 418,000 more native-born Americans — in August 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ household survey.

    Enough of racist comments about the Tea Party. //Moderator

    • Cluster October 1, 2012 / 9:25 pm

      Mitch,

      Let me help you out here – first of all, there is no such thing as a “left leaning libertarian”, it’s an impossibility. On the political scale, libertarianism is further right than conservatism. Libertarianism is a belief that government should play virtually no role in a persons life, so you would first have to become a conservative, before becoming a libertarian.

      Secondly, Obama is an Apostate Muslim according to the Koran. He was born to a Muslim father, but does not practice the religion. Therefore, by Islamic accords, Obama is an Apostate. You slander Islam when you say anything differently.

      Finally, I see that you resorted to the tired old tactic of labeling the tea party a racist movement, which pretty much discredits you automatically, and Talking Heads was a great band.

      • casper October 1, 2012 / 9:35 pm

That is so old fashioned and according to the constitution. You should give up teaching if you abide by such nonsense. Wars are long simmering things undeclared.

        You should understand that since the US overthrew a democratically elected government in Iran in 1953 the 2 countries have been at war.

        You should know that since the failed CIA coup of 1957 the US has been at war with Syria.

        You should know the Pakistan is currently flying drones over US territory since there is a war. Strike that, it’s the other way around.

Lots of hatred, a little racism, but not a lick of truth.

      BTW, you might wonder just what kind of insults the Obamas gave the English, from insulting their gift of the bust of Churchill to that tacky tacky “gift” of the iPod to the Queen to Michelle’s pawing of the Queen in defiance of protocol, it appears that it is our head of state and his wife who have clumsily insulted the English.

      Romney pointed out a fact, based upon his own experience, regarding some security issues at the Olympics—–and the desperate Left, frantic to find SOMETHING to smear Romney with, has spun this into an insult of the nation and its people.

    If the election were held today, 55 percent of physicians reported they would vote for Romney while just 36 percent support Obama, according to a survey released by Jackson & Coker, a division of Jackson Healthcare, the third largest health care staffing company in the United States. Fifteen percent of respondents said they were switching their vote from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012. The top reasons cited for this change was the Affordable Care Act and the failure to address tort reform.

        You have said the same thing about other union workers like the Wisconsin teachers (and yes Milton Friedman the godfather of modern conservative hooey thought the AMA was a union) so why can’t you see it in when it applied to Doctors?

        Of course using your logic that MD’s are somehow better suited to decide which health care system is optimal, you wouldn’t mind including all MD’s from across the world. If you wonder how e.g. Canadian MD’s feel about the US health care system by and large you can find out via the internet.

In that case, “sealed” court documents related to a child custody case were suddenly made public, documents containing testimony that Obama’s opponent had (gasp!) asked his wife for certain sex acts. She said no. End of story—-at least till the carrion eaters of the Left got hold of it, splashed it all over the headlines of the Complicit Agenda Media, and used it to smear another good man.

      Of course we are supposed to overlook the hypocrisy. You know, the genitalia-based Leftist platform of any kind of sex, with any person or persons, anywhere, any time. Evidently that does not apply to long-married couples engaging in sexual fantasies after being separated for months while the husband is in a foreign land serving his country.

      Col. West’s wife is obviously a strong, intelligent, accomplished woman in her own right, with a career—not a beaten-down intimidated barefoot waif dependent on an abusive husband. Clearly if SHE felt abused, she would not put up with it.

      The sexual relationship between a man and wife is, or would be without the voyeuristic snoopings of the RRL, a private matter, and role playing withing a marriage is nobody’s damned business. It’s supposed to be so cute and funny when one of the network semi-porn “comedies” has a story line with a male stripper threatening giggling women with arrest before stripping down and shoving his crotch into their faces—no, this is art. But let a man indulge in what is obviously a consensual game of sexual fantasy with his WIFE, and the crotch-sniffing Left is all over it.

      And all this really does is point out that the Left is so desperate that it will stoop to literally anything to smear its opponents, because it simply cannot run on its merits.

      Just as Barack Obama had no chance of winning that Senate seat without smearing his opponent and forcing him out of the race, most of the Left’s candidates are dependent on destroying their opposition rather than on honestly winning because they have the better plans for governing the nation.

        “Allen West, a man of impeccable honor and integrity, a true war hero, . . .”
        Are you serious? impeccable honor and integrity? What alternate world do you live in? He was very fortunate to get an honorable discharge and avoid 11 years of imprisonment. But yea, lets go with “honor and integrity.” This man has said some of the most vile things ever uttered by a Congressman.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 4:22 pm

        You are not only a moron, you’re a vile and mean spirited moron who wallows in the filth spread by your beloved Dems and comes back for more. Listen to the men whose lives he saved, American and Iraqi, and look at the reality of war, and get your head out of your nether regions where the view never changes and the sun don’t shine.

      • irisspirit October 2, 2012 / 5:23 pm

        No you are the moron to say that this disgusting person is a man of impeccable honor and integrity – and for you to call anyone “mean spirited” is a joke. You are the most mean spirited person on this blog. You constantly call people names, write the nastiest remarks and in general are hateful to anyone who does not agree with you. Just because this man served in the military does not necessarily make him a hero. Do you remember “swift boating” John Kerry? You had no problem with that, but you defend a man who violated military laws and regulations and was very luck to be allowed to retire without a dishonorable discharge. He has no respect for women nor any one who does not think as he does. He is an embarrassment to Congress along with Walsh and Bachmann. Why is it that the crazier the Republican politician the more the far right loves them? And that is why the GOP is loosing votes. The goofier and far out your candidates the more the Tea Party group supports them – i.e. Sharon Angle and Christine O’Donnell are just prime examples along with West, Bachmann and Walsh. And you can keep your head up your nether regions cause your views never change and the sun don’t shine.

        HORSE CRAP, had he committed a CRIME he would have been court Martialed and delt with according to the UCMJ. He WASNT

        sKerry on the other hand was DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED for TREASON pardoned and reinstated by jimmah Karter.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 7:18 pm

        Velma the Hutt, you are a bottom feeder who delights in sharing your mental excrement with us. If you think I am “hateful” because people do not agree with me, then you prove yourself to be stupid and a liar. I am intolerant of stupidity, though plain stupidity is not so bad if not seasoned with toxic spite and malice, such as yours is. I can, and do, deal with many people who do not agree with me, without being disrespectful. It is lying and malice that trigger what you call my “hatefulness” which is why so much of it is directed toward you.

        I do remember the “Swift Boating” of John F’n Kerry, and unlike you I looked into it, read every account I could find of his military service, and at the end found him to be a disgrace to the Navy and to the nation, and the efforts to redefine “Swift Boating” as an unfounded attack instead of an honest accounting of his antics to be a particularly shameful chapter in the very shameful history of the Left.

        I suppose you thought it was OK for him to lie, under oath, to Congress, too, and to defame our military with his lies, and to lie again when he claimed to throw his medals over the fence of the White House. Yeah, Velma, show us how much you value integrity by defending this POS.

        The fact that you try to slime Walsh and Bachmann in your rant is just more proof of your penchant for wallowing in muck and mire. The meaner, nastier, and more dishonest something is, the more you love it.

        You are ignorantly repeating a vicious slander and libel against a man, which is circulated not because he did anything wrong but because he did what was necessary to rescue his men and save lives, and if you had an honest bone buried in that body of yours you would take the time to look up the accounts of what really happened and how his men and his peers felt, and feel, about it.

        But no, that is not your style. Your style is to seek out the meanest, nastiest, most vicious gossip and then regurgitate it and share, gleefully, in any effort to slime and defame a man whose shoes you are not qualified to shine.

        You, of all people, dare to claim that he was “…very luck (sic) to be allowed to retire without a dishonorable discharge. ..” And you know this, how? Oh, that’s right: Someone with your own level of honesty and ethics—-that is to say, none—-said so, and you so loved the taste of this excrement in your mouth that you just couldn’t wait to pass it on.

        You even vomit up that sludge about him not respecting women. You have no shame, and what’s more you can’t even come up with your own comebacks, and have to recycle my comments to you.

        Waddle on back to aerospirit and tell THEM all your crap. Oh, you tried that? And that’s why you have to come here? Because no one can stand to listen to your constant spewing of hate and lies? Yeah, like THAT’S a surprise……………..

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 7:32 pm

        BTW, when Col.West SCARED a man into giving information, that information saved many many lives, including those of Iraqis. He was a hero to those who served with and under him, and to many Iraqis.

        So you lying, disgusting creatures who now try to use this incident to smear and defame him purely for political gain are seen for what you are. You plop your fat donkey into a chair in Tulsa Oklahoma, thousands of miles from armed conflict, and you dare—you DARE—to try to slime a man for saving American and Iraqi lives by scaring—SCARING—a terrorist.

        No doubt you would have preferred to have more American and Iraqi casualties, to save a scum-sucking terrorist from a few moments of emotional discomfort.

        Col. West once said he would march through Hell carrying a can of gasoline if that is what it took to protect his men. I am sure this kind of dedication and courage is offensive to you, you being such a Kerry fan and all. After all, Kerry applied for Swift Boat duty when all they did was act as couriers between the shore and offshore ships, and had a wall-kicking hissy fit when he learned that by the time he got a boat they had been transferred to riverine duty—you know, where they might actually get SHOT at. So he had to get out, and get out fast. And his commanding officers were in favor of this, as they wanted to get rid of him as fast as they could. No doubt while you are sniveling about an A-Q terrorist wetting his pants because he was SCARED, you are filled with admiration for a Navy man who caused a young boy (about 6 years old, on his father’s lap) to be killed because he was goofing around on duty and not paying attention to river traffic. And of course there was the heroic pursuit and point-blank killing of a wounded teenager.

        It must be the contrast between Johnny Boy and the real man, Col. West, who actually did what had to be done to save his men, that has your panties in such a twist.

        John F’n Kerry is reminiscent of Genghis Kahn.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 7:59 pm

        Is that “JENN jiss Khan”?

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 7:59 pm

        Of course it is. It is seared— SEARED —-into my memory!

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 8:01 pm

        One of my favorite John F’n Kerry stories is about how he brought a movie camera to Viet Nam and then had his shipmates help him recreate scenes that supposedly showed his true Viet Nam experiences, to be filmed.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 8:02 pm

        No, no, it’s the one about the Magic Hat that was given to him by a CIA operative.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 8:03 pm

        No, it’s the one about the Richard Nixon radio speech, before Nixon was even President.

      • Amazona October 2, 2012 / 8:06 pm

        Though it could be about the time he grabbed a grenade launcher and fired into a nearby cliff, ending up with a life-threatening splinter in his hand that he had to hold in place till he got to a clinic so a doctor could remove it and it would be on his record as a real wound—-though he had to wait till the disgusted doctor went off duty and get another doc, who did not know the story, to sign off on a “wound” and the claim it happened in an engagement with the enemy.

      • tiredoflibbs October 2, 2012 / 7:59 pm

        Velma the mindless drone: “Just because this man served in the military does not necessarily make him a hero. Do you remember “swift boating” John Kerry?”

        Uh, Kerry’s military and post military actions (pretending to be a hero) brought his fellow swift-boating crews to bring forth truths that directly contradicted Kerry’s military FICTION.

        You are one miserable person who never has anything positive to say about anyone who is not toeing the obAMATEUR line of BS. You are not a happy person. Why are you so miserable? Are you dependent upon obAMATEUR and his Dem cronies to make you feel happy by spreading misery to everyone who is not a proggy?

        Pathetic.

      • Cluster October 2, 2012 / 6:26 pm

        Iris,

        Obviously you’re a racist. You must be uncomfortable with a black man in a hero role.
