First “Mincome”… Now “Maxcome”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Income inequality appears to be the latest leftist mantra. It seems not a day goes by where Obama is reading something off his Teleprompter pertaining to the unfair practice of “Income Inequality”.

I say reading his Teleprompter, because I know, as do you, he cares nothing about this topic. He knows, as do we, that is just the latest focus group tested whine from the left, hopefully capable of keeping Obamacare off the front page.

Really, it must be tiring to be a committed leftist (and they all should be committed). Are they now or have they ever been happy? It must be tiring to be that angry all the time – constantly moving from one misguided cause to another. Sheesh – I’m tired just thinking about it.

It must be even more tiring being a Democrat politician, having to pretend to care about all this nonsense just to maintain the power they appear to crave so badly. read more

Senate Dems Get Gerrymandered?

Via the Corner. I’ve been looking for a palate cleanser all day for you guys but until now none of the offerings were up to snuff. Rand Paul claiming that the billions in federal money that New Jersey got after Hurricane Sandy basically bought the election for Christie? Nah. There’ll be time to blog that when Christie fires back and then Paul responds with another crack about “bacon.” McCain suggesting that he’s tired of being asked about Palin? Tempting, but no. read more

Obama’s “Just Say No” Administration

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

I was flipping through news channels Sunday morning and happened upon MSNBC. Okay, I didn’t just happen upon it for I usually avoid it like the plague, but Fox was discussing some pop-culture nonsense.

 

There was a discussion panel with four liberals and one former George HW Bush progressive consultant. He was both progressive and black, so it was okay.

 

They were discussing Ted Cruz and naturally there was no love in the room. They allowed the “Republican” consultant plenty of time to trash Ted. He (the Republican) said he was more of a Chris Christie Republican. That’s really all you need to know about him.

 

He described Ted Cruz as being a closed tent conservative. How Cruz harkened back to a different era in America and apparently that is never a good thing – to look back, unless of course you’re looking back to FDR or LBJ. The consultant wants the party to be constantly looking “forward”. That’s what good progressives do, don’t you know.

 

One of the libs chimed in saying that Cruz is satisfied to “just say no” to every initiative. That he is only interested in shrinking government. Oh the horror! read more

Don’t Like Bloomberg… You’re an Anti-Semite

by:  the Common Constitutionalist

So, all the sudden the left in America is concerned with anti-Semitism. That’s a riot. Is this the same left that constantly sides with the Muslim Brotherhood and goes out of their way to support Islam? That left?

It just goes to show, when pundits on the left want to accomplish something – there is no end to which they will go.

mayors against illegal gunsI’m speaking, in this case, of gun control and the fascist mayor Michael Bloomberg’s one-man crusade for their confiscation. And don’t think for a moment that is not his endgame. As with everything Bloomberg involves himself in, it seems he always knows better than we, how to live our lives, for we cannot be trusted. Sounds a lot like the great progressive Teddy Roosevelt.

And now those with no moral center have branded us pro-second amendment advocates as anti-Semites.

For those who are unaware, Mayor Bloomberg with his personal fortune, north of $22 billion, started an organization called “Mayors against Illegal Guns”. What an apropos name, for of course, who could be for illegal guns? Naturally no one and that is why the word game. The left is great at innocuous names for things – abortion is reproductive or women’s health because who would oppose the health of a woman?MS13

Anyway, Benito Bloomberg cobbled this organization together to “combat” the influence of the NRA and he’s announced a $12 million ad campaign to push for universal background checks, because we all know that this is how criminals acquire their guns. Criminals seek out legal sales and subject themselves to legal background checks. I’m sure that’s how MS13 acquired their weapons.

You see, Il Duce, or should I say Il Douche Bag, is Jewish. This past Monday on MSNBC, contributor Mike Barnicle said: “let’s get down to it, Mike Bloomberg, mayor of New York City; I mean, there’s a level of anti-Semitism in this thing directed toward Bloomberg.” Al Sharpton chimed in agreement: “there’s no doubt about it”.

Their proof comes from comments made on the website “Stormfront”, your typical white supremacist site, calling out Bloomberg for being a “Jew” and variBloomberg is a Jewous tweets claiming Bloomberg to be “King Heeb”. Real middle-of-the-road stuff that clearly represents the conservative point of view, don’t you think? MSNBC has finally outed us as the Jew haters we are. What a despicable bunch of hatemongers.

Yes, we are not lovers of liberty, but anti-semites. We don’t dislike Bloomberg due to his version of American fascism. No, that can’t be it. It’s that he is Jewish. If he were Protestant or Catholic we would be fine with his no salt, no trans-fats, no big gulp and now, gun control decrees.

We would be okay with his governing philosophy of: “You have to have the space, if you will, to lead from the front to make decisions to then convince people why it’s right, to do things,” said Bloomberg. “And if it doesn’t work perfectly, to fix it.”

Not that he should convince the public to support an idea, but to just explain to his subjects that he is right and you must support it after he has made the decision for you. That would be grand, if he were not a “Jew”.

As with anything the left attempts to foist on the American people, they know they can never win an honest debate. There must always be some devious angle to pull and tug at the hearts, but not the minds of the low information citizen.

If Bloomberg were honest about his real intent to confiscate our weapons, he would get nowhere, regardless of how much money he threw at his silly campaign, but he would still have the unwavering support of the idiots at MSNBC.

 

 

Cooking the Numbers

Newt Gingrich: Jack Welch’s Jobs Report Theory ‘Rings True at a Deeper Level’

by:

Newt Gingrich said former General Electric CEO Jack Welch’s contention that the Obama administration cooked the September jobs report numbers “rings true at a deeper level” because of the deep distrust of the president.

“It rings true at a deeper level, without getting into the conspiracy of it,” Gingrich said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.“ ”What’s interesting is you have a president who after four years — and by the way his last budget got zero votes in the U.S. Senate, not a single Democrat voted for his last budget.

He continued, “So you have a president of the United States so deeply distrusted by people like Jack Welch — who’s hardly a right-winger, I mean Welch is one of the most successful businessmen in America — that Welch instantaneously assumes this is the Chicago machine. I’m just — it’s worth looking at.”

After the September jobs numbers were released Friday showing a drop in the unemployment rate to 7.8 percent, the lowest since January 2009, Welch tweeted, “Unbelievable jobs numbers…these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers.” Welch subsequently admitted he didn’t have any evidenceto back up his assertion, but told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews it “seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election, the numbers go one-tenth of a point below where the president started.”

NBC’s Chuck Todd said the it was a “bad trend” that “Donald Trump and Jack Welch, rich people with crazy conspiracies can get traction”

Senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs, also a guest on the panel, denounced Welch’s “absolutely crazy” comments.

“I assume…there’s a number of people who believe the real unemployment report is somewhere in a safe in Nairobi with the president’s Kenyan birth certificate,” Gibbs said. “The notion quite frankly that somebody as well-respected as Jack Welch would go on television and single-handedly embarrass himself…it’s incredibly dangerous.”

Romney/Ryan

by: the Common Constitutionalist

NBC and MSNBC are truly despicable. They’ve been on the edge of dishonesty for years, but since Obama has been elected, they have fallen over the edge and have fully embraced the dark side.

They’ve lied about the Tea Party repeatedly.

You recall the selectively dishonest editing of George Zimmerman, in the Trayvon Martin case, making him sound like a racist who wanted to kill the black kid.

How about the Romney/WAWA incident from a few months ago. Romney describes his visit to a WAWA convenience store where he touched a couple of keypad buttons, payed the cashier and “there’s your sandwich”. Andrea Mitchell reported purposely as Romney being out of touch with the regular folks and the newsclip was, of course, edited to make it appear that way.

In fact, watching the entire video, which Andrea wouldn’t allow, you’ll plainly see Romney making the comparison between private sector efficiency and innovation and public sector red-tape.

The latest act of reporting malfeasance comes to us again via MSNBC, during Joe Scarborough’s show, “The Morning Joe”. A clip of a Romney/Ryan campaign stop was played which made it appear that the sizable crowd was chanting “Ryan, Ryan, Ryan! The closed captioning added by MSNBC even showed the words Ryan, Ryan, Ryan.

The Morning Joe people then showed an “embarrassed Romney interrupting the chant by saying, ” No, it should be Romney/Ryan, Romney Ryan.” The MSNBC crew was shocked at the juvenile attempt of Mitt to jealously try to inject himself into the chant. Joe and Mika were aghast and their disappointment in Romney was evident from their expressions.

A day later MSNBC’s Martin Bashir simply kept the Mitt-Bashing train rolling. But, why not? After all, Mitt was being overshadowed by his running mate and that apparently didn’t sit well with Romney.

As is more often than not with MSNBC, there’s a problem with this report. They lied again!

You see, if you listen carefully to the video clip, you’ll hear the crowd is not chanting Ryan, Ryan. So what were the chanting?

It seems some attendees to the rally caught wind of the MSNBC report and started calling in to various shows. The eye (and ear) witnesses saw and heard something completely different.

The crowd was actually chanted, “Romney, Romney, Romney” during Ryan’s speech. Evidently Mitt interrupted Ryan to tell the crowd that it should be Romney/Ryan, Romney/Ryan.

On attendee called into the BlazeTv. “The crowd was yelling,” caller Sherry recounts, “the crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’ and Romney, being the gentleman [he is], we can‘t get in his head because he’s so stinking nice, he stopped us to add ‘Romney-Ryan.’”

“And if you watch the clip again, Ryan throws up his hand like ‘oh, you don’t have to add me to the chant,’” she adds.

Another attendee, Michele Jewett, in an email, wrote, “He (Ryan) introduced Governor Romney and handed the microphone to him. Gov. Romney said, ‘What about that Paul Ryan’ and the crowd immediately started chanting, ‘Romney, Romney‘ not ’Ryan, Ryan’ like the closed captioning on the MSNBC video stated,” she adds.

In fact, what Mitt actually said was, “Let’s try this, Romney/Ryan, Romney/Ryan, I like that better!”

The video in its entirety is so obvious, even the New York Times and Huffington Post had to admit the crowd was chanting Romney, not Ryan.

So what are we to conclude from this? That NBC news has become a campaign arm of the Obama reelection team and will do and say anything to assist?

YEP! Don’t watch them, don’t listen to them, don’t believe a word they say.

Romney Changes Mind, New V.P. Pick Is…

Breaking News! by the Common Constitutionalist

This just in! Mitt Romney changes his mind regarding his choice of running mate. In a sudden turnabout, Romney turns his whole campaign on its head.

Paul Ryan is out. Romney said to an anonymous source, he wanted to go in another direction. He claimed to the source, he wanted to get away from the conservative policy man.

His new choice. Jesus Christ.

And not even a Power Tie

Immediately, the democrats sprang to action, with attack ads and pundits flooding the talk circuit. It’s as if they were tipped off prior to the announcement.

The first ad to hit network TV was of Mr. Christ pushing an old woman in a wheel chair over a cliff. When asked, Debbie Blabbermouth Shultz said she was unaware of any ties between the Obama White House and the Superpac that produced the ad. The Superpac claiming responsibility for the ad is relatively new. Not much is known of it.  It does have a fairly lengthy name, so as do most of them , it has an acronym; WNPOAWPac. It evidently stands for, We are Not Part of the Obama Administration – We Promise. 

A panel on MSNBC was convened in short order. Chris Matthews emphatically refuted the republican claims that the selection could cement the ticket thus saving the nation from almost certain destruction. Matthews was unconvinced, stating that there was only one true savior of mankind and he was already in the White house. If you looked closely, during that segment, it appeared Matthews leg actually shivered.

David Axelrod appeared on CNN carrying a fish and a loaf of bread. He publicly challenged the new VP selection to, “Go ahead, feed the masses. I dare you to try without the assistance of the Farm Bill that your party has held up in congress.” 

Late Saturday on NBC news, Andrea Mitchell interviewed Joe Septic, a man who claimed Jesus Christ willingly and with malice, ruined his life. He stated that years ago he suffered from post traumatic stress. Joe stated, “It was severely debilitating and I was unable to function outside the home.”  “From the war?”, asked Andrea. “No, Burger King, replied Mr. Septic. ” You see… this is really hard to relive.” “Take your time, added Andrea. Joe continued, “You see, years back I ordered a double cheeseburger, small fry and a vanilla shake. I picked up my order at the drive through and drove away. It seems they gave me a chocolate shake instead. I called 911. By the time the first responders arrived on the scene, it was too late. The damage to my mind had already been done.” 

A few years later an acquaintance dragged Joe to an event with a relatively unknown motivational speaker. It turned out to be the new VP candidate, Jesus Christ. After the speech, Jesus went out into the crowd to interact with the attendees. Septic said, “Jesus approached me and laid his hand on my head saying he would make me whole again. I never asked him to do it. He just did it. As he walked away, my sanity returned.” Andrea said, ” And you never even asked him? How awful for you. And how did this encountered negatively affect you?” “Well, Ms. Mitchell, I lost all my government benefits and was forced to find a…a….a job.”  Joe added, “I do not think Mr. Christ realizes what he did to me. Furthermore, I do not think Jesus Christ was concerned.”

Andrea Mitchell, known in some circles to be a woman, later reported that Romney’s pick of Jesus was a vote against all suburban moms.  “I think that you’re going to see that they’ve decided that this is a base election. This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.” Evidently, this Jesus fellow is a pro-lifer.

So there you have it. A move sure to shake things up & according to the media, allow Obama to sail into a second term. For, of course, who in their right (or left) mind would vote for such a ticket.

Forward Ho!

By: The Common Constitutionalist

Yes, the new Obama campaign slogan, “Forward”. It’s new, it’s innovative, it’s hip. Or is it? It appears quite similar to the MSNBC slogan “Lean Forward”. Funny coincidence, isn’t it.

It evokes movement in a positive direction. Don’t go back. Push on to better times ahead. One has to move”Forward” to make progress. Could that be where the term “Progressive” came from?  Absolutely! The early progressives knew we had to move forward. Cast off the shackles of that stifling old Constitution.

The slogan “Forward” is new and innovative, if you don’t know history. For those who do know their history, the slogan “Forward” is even more foreboding than that of “Progress”.

Wikipedia: The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other leftwing newspapers and publications. For example, Vpered (Russian language for ‘Forward’) was the name of the publication that Lenin started after having resigned from the Iskra editorial board in 1905 after a clash with Georgi Plekhanov and the Mensheviks.

Now it’s time for some irony, travelling back in time to find the origins of the slogan, “Forward”.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words (or so they say), we’ll see what history has to offer.

Lenin, Forward for the Motherland, for our victory!

Under the leadership of the great Stalin - forward to Communism!

Young builders of communism! Forward, to the new successes in work and study!

Mao, Strike the battle drum of the Great Leap Forward ever louder

Sing revolutionary war songs with fervor, and move forward in victory.

Notice A common theme, maybe a word that stands out?

A Rare Look Inside the Leftist Media

Inside Media Matters: Sources, memos reveal erratic behavior, close coordination with White House and news organizations

by: Tucker Carlson, Vince Coglianese, Alex Pappas and Will Rahn of The Daily Caller

Part One:
David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall of 2010 when his assistant and two bodyguards suddenly appeared and whisked him and his colleague Eric Burns down the stairs.

Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe.


The threat he faced while smoking on his roof? “Snipers,” a former co-worker recalled.

“He had more security than a Third World dictator,” one employee said, explaining that Brock’s bodyguards would rarely leave his side, even accompanying him to his home in an affluent Washington neighborhood each night where they “stood post” to protect him. “What movement leader has a detail?” asked someone who saw it.

Extensive interviews with a number of Brock’s current and former colleagues at Media Matters, as well as with leaders from across the spectrum of Democratic politics, reveal an organization roiled by its leader’s volatile and erratic behavior and struggles with mental illness, and an office where Brock’s executive assistant carried a handgun to public events in order to defend his boss from unseen threats.

Yet those same interviews, as well as a detailed organizational planning memo obtained by The Daily Caller, also suggest that Media Matters has to a great extent achieved its central goal of influencing the national media.

Founded by Brock in 2004 as a liberal counterweight to “conservative misinformation” in the press, Media Matters has in less than a decade become a powerful player in Democratic politics. The group operates in regular coordination with the highest levels of the Obama White House, as well as with members of Congress and progressive groups around the country. Brock, who collected over $250,000 in salary from Media Matters in 2010, has himself become a major fundraiser on the left. According to an internal memo obtained by TheDC, Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage.

Donors have every reason to expect success, as the group’s effect on many news organizations has already been profound. “We were pretty much writing their prime time,” a former Media Matters employee said of the cable channel MSNBC. “But then virtually all the mainstream media was using our stuff.”

The group scored its first significant public coup in 2007 with the firing of host Don Imus from MSNBC. Just before Easter that year, a Media Matters employee recorded Imus’s now-famous attack on the Rutgers women’s basketball team, and immediately recognized its inflammatory potential. The organization swung into action, notifying organizations like the NAACP, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, all of which joined the fight.

Over the course of a week, Media Matters mobilized more than 50 people to work full-time adding fuel to the Imus story. Researchers searched the massive Media Matters database for controversial statements Imus had made over the years. The group issued press release after press release. Brock personally called the heads of various liberal activist groups to coordinate a message. By the end of the week, Imus was fired.
