Can you tell they are lying scum?

No? Remember the donkeys telling us GWB’s government was in bed with the oil companies when gas prices was flirting with the high $3.00 a gallon amounts? Have a look at this video for a refresher and the reaction now that we are flirting with gas at $5.00 a gallon....



Let me repeat the question: where is the MSM on this now that prices are racing to $5.00 a gallon? Our economy is getting hammered by these gas prices, which combined with the devaluation of the dollar and the disastrous economic conditions the last 4 years of demcorat control of federal government spending, are causing massive inflation in basic necessities like food, and what’s the MSM saying? That high gas prices are AWESOME! Why? No, not because the Obama admin is in bed with the oil companies, which they sure as hell are if a price hike means that when Bush is president, but because it will force people to take the crappy, inefficient, and politically bullshit, green economy as something good?

What a bunch of scumbags these loser shillers in the MSM are.

Yes, I am gloating

News like this is music to my ears. As long as the members of the DNC propaganda arm of the MSM suffer financial losses and dwindle in power, it gives me hope that Americans have had enough of the constant shilling and often outright lying to help the collectivsts and their depraved causes.

The New York Times Company reported a sharp drop in net income in the first quarter as the print advertising market remained stubbornly depressed for newspapers. The company said net income fell 57.6 percent to $5.4 million, compared with $12.8 million in the quarter a year ago. The weakness in print advertising, coupled with an unexpected drop in revenue at About.com, led to earnings of 4 cents a share before special items are excluded, compared with 8 cents a share in the period a year ago. Revenue for the quarter dropped 3.6 percent to $566.5 million. Total advertising revenue declined 4.4 percent, but the performance by advertising sector varied widely. At The New York Times Media Group, which includes the namesake paper, NYTimes.com and The International Herald Tribune, the decline was 1.9 percent.

Here is hoping it gets even owrse for you bastards. At a minimum this is some tiny payback for straddling us with Obama.

The next time some libtard tells you that the corporate world is in bed with republicans…

Point out that the facts don’t back that lie up and that the big corporations know the party that will help them rake in the cash while giving them all those evil loopholes moonbats go bonkers over are the donkeys. Don’t expect the MSM regulars to say anything: they are usually too busy covering for the crooks in this administration, but the WSJ has the scoop.

General Electric Co. reported a 77% increase in first-quarter earnings, lifted by marked improvement at its GE Capital financing arm and gains at most of its industrial units. The company also boosted its quarterly dividend by a penny to 15 cents. The move marks GE’s third dividend increase in the past year, although the payout remains well short of GE’s 31-cent dividend from before the financial crisis and economic downturn.

“Our environment continues to improve and get better,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Jeff Immelt on a call with analysts, noting that the restructuring of GE Capital was ahead of plan while the quarter saw a record backlog of orders for its industrial products and services.

See that bolded section above? That’s corporate speak for “Them donkeys are helping rig the game so we can send jobs overseas, rake in big cash from both government subsides and sales, and avoid paying taxes in the US - which usually really means they avoid making their consumers pay taxes - while squashing anyone that could compete with us, and they do it for peanuts on the dollar”. Obama didn’t make Immelt a member of his Czar entourage for nothing. That billion dollars he wants to raise for the 2012 campaign is going to come from big unions and big corporations like GE, which love how the government helps them squash the competition - with the consumer losing out all the time - in return for cash. And GE isn’t the only one they do this for. They made the tax payers bail out the unions and turned General Motors into Government Motors for a reason. Now they want to sell off GM stock, at a big loss for the tax payers to boot. Maybe that move is so the GM execs can then start raking in big money and donate big money, right in time for the 2012 race, since when GM is no longer owned by the Obama Admin, it becomes free to hand out huge pay raises and bonuses to the GM execs again. I don’t buy the story that they are panic selling because it will be good for the tax payer.

The next time some moron tells you how the republicans are the party in bed with corporate America, remember and remind them that corporate America, those mega-billion dollar giant companies, are always friends with demcorats. That’s not a coincidence or a fluke, but precisely because those large corporations know, not just who is for sale and whom they can get to write laws that let them avoid taxes or competition, but that demcorats love the relationship between big government and big industry. It’s one of the mechanics behind the whole government planned economies bullshit you get in collectivists governments. Look how well it worked for the USSR.

This is why the demcorats have been so resistive to cuts

Not because they think that these cuts will hurt anyone, well maybe their power and base, or because these cuts are bad for the American people or economy, but because it’s the government’s money anyway and they want more of it. From the start the left’s strategy has been to spend so ridiculously much money they don’t have, under whatever stupid excuse they could use to sell this idiotic plan to the people, that the only way to make up the difference was to force tax hikes on everyone. And if you doubt that’s the plan, just read the story.

President Barack Obama will lay out his plan for reducing the nation’s deficit Wednesday, belatedly entering a fight over the nation’s long-term financial future. But in addition to suggesting cuts—the current focus of debate—the White House looks set to aim its firepower on a more divisive topic: taxes. In a speech Wednesday, Mr. Obama will propose cuts to entitlement programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, and changes to Social Security, a discussion he has largely left to Democrats and Republicans in Congress. He also will call for tax increases for people making over $250,000 a year, a proposal contained in his 2012 budget, and changing parts of the tax code he thinks benefit the wealthy.

If the government confiscated all the money from the rich they could finance this charade for maybe a year. This is about the left’s plan to go after small businesses and people trying to get rich, and to thus force them to deal with whatever the powerbrokers want from them before they get the loopholes needed to stop paying the graft passed. As Obamacare and everything else in the last 2 years have proved, the left’s strategy is to straddle us all with as many ridiculous taxes or costs as they can, then give their friends and cash cows exceptions. The suckers pay morem, the ones connected to the left enhance the left’s power to avoid paying. This is more of the same in the works. The corruptocrats believe it’s their money, and they want it NOW!

The left is pretending to need hike taxes to “protect” the middle class. What a pile of shit. This is sure to force people to move their wealth into shelters and away from the grubby hands of the crooks in DC, but then again, the crooks are fine with that too. They are more interested in a large beholden class that depends on them for subsistence, than they are in actually fixing either the debt/deficit situation or the economy. With the left it is always about increasing its power and thus government, first, second, and always. Tax cuts and smaller government are anathema to them. Don’t buy this umpteenth attempt to screw us all over as anything but.

The race in WI just got really interesting

Well Kloppenberg already declared victory yesterday as Hal’s post below shows, so revelations like this one are going to be problematic.

Madison - In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 7,500 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor. The Waukesha County clerk’s office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board. “Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000,” Haas said the Accountability Board was told. The numbers will add some 11,000 votes for Prosser and some 3,000 for Kloppenburg, he said.

It now seems clear to me that the despite their efforts and AP’s help to inform the demcorats what they needed to push for a win, they did not manufacturing enough new ballots to push the vote. Doesn’t mean they might no find a whole bunch that have not been counted yet under some stairs or in someone’s trunk, to push Kloppenberg over the line, but this new number putting Posner over 7500 votes ahead of Kloppenberg sure shifts the picture and makes the job real hard for the donkey machine. Even more problematic are revelations like this one, which immediately should raise massive suspicion with anyone that understand how unlikely this particular set of circumstances are.

On an estimated more than 10,000 ballots in Dane County, Wisconsin, where the state capital Madison is, voters selected only a pick in the Supreme Court race, while leaving even the hotly contested mayoral and county executive choices blank. That raises red flags for election experts like Scott St. Clair of the Freedom Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Really, 10K votes, all for Kloppenberg, and all only checking that vote, while ignoring the many other hotly contested races? Sounds like the new box of uncounted votes in the car trunk/under the stairs scenario didn’t include enough made up votes. Yet? Who knows, we are talking about demcorats here.

Oh, that media bias!

Want to see the media shill for Obama some more? Well, this link will take you to the scrubbed version of the AP article where Obama was asked about high gas prices. Focus on this portion:

“ But the president said it won’t happen overnight and if any politician says it’s easy, “they’re not telling the truth.”

“Gas prices? They’re going to still fluctuate until we can start making these broader changes, and that’s going to take a couple of years to have serious effect,” Obama said.

Find here an image of the original article and look for the missing quote:

See the difference? Let me point it out for ya:

Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.

Ah, so AP figured telling people to go buy a new car made Obama look bad and elitist, and decided to take it out. Heh! The guy is a douche for saying shit like this. Americans ought to know so. Think they would have done something like this if Bush had said it? Yeah, thought so.

I want a government shutdown!

Know first that the budget we are having problems with was/is the 2010 budget, not the 2011 one. Yeah, that’s when the democrats owned all 3 branches of government, with comfortable enough margins to push through whatever they wanted. They hung the costly yoke of Obamacare around the tax payer’s neck, in a practically party line vote, and then only after promising billions of dollars & oodles special exclusions and favors to other democrats that needed to be bought to get them to go along, without a problem. They didn’t even care when people pointed out how disastrous the extra spending for Obamacare would be, or how big of a job killer the government takeover of healthcare and the new taxes they plan to add to cover some of this massive spending would be. Obamacare wasn’t the only idiotic and unpopular bill they had the time to pass, nor the only stupid shit they wanted and got done. Everyone was screamed about jobs and the last thing on their minds was that. But that 2010 budget? With the elections not to far away? No freaking way!

Much ado about nothing..

Many out there on the web are going bananas about the recent Daily Caller revelation about CBS and the WaPo receiving big cash from Obamacare slush funding, and insinuating that this definitely should have been pointed out as a conflict of interest by them considering their support for it and all the positive reporting that has consistently ignore the fact this boondoggle has been sold using a lot of smoke & mirrors to pretend it will cut the deficit or improve healthcare.

Let’s quickly rehash some of thehealthcare facts they have gotten wrong. Obamacare portends to reduce the defect over the next 10 years by some $120 billion through an accounting trick that forced the CBO to come up with those numbers. If you tax people for a decade but then only offer them services for the last 5 years of that, and then pretend you can control that cost as well, you can make it look like you saved the $120 billion. But those of us that understand Obamacare will not suddenly stop offering health services for the first five years of the next decade but collect the same taxes realize the fact it will then add trillions of new debt obligations! Then you have the whole problem of throwing in some 30 million new people that will have to be paid for, and the fact that gutting Medicare – under the guise of cleaning up waste amongst all the ludicrous lies that are part & parcel of this fairy tale - and transferring that cash to Obamacare isn’t going to do much other than make it harder to follow which bureaucracy is screwing us over. In short, this thing is likely to be the final dagger the collectivist seem to want to shove into the heart of this county’s economy, likely to bring it down, and nothing more.

But I have been over this all already, am tired of repeating it, and enough Americans understand that this plan is plain bullshit, and it remains unpopular. Now we finally even have congress starting to defunding most of it, thank the lord. So let’s get back to this revelation that SeeBs and WaPo are raking in a considerable chunk of change, taxpayer dollars allocated to Obamacare, not mentioning they are doing so until caught, while reporting positively on Obamacare, and the furor it seems to be causing. Come on! These shills for the donkey machine would have done the same even if they had not been lucky enough to score some tax payer money anyway. It’s not like the WaPo or SeeBS would suddenly have come out against Obamacare, considering how beholden they are to the collectivists and their agenda, you know. At worst, what we have here is some icing on the cake from either SeeBS’s and WaPo’s perspective, and that’s about all. So what if they are getting paid to do the hack reporting job they would normally do for free?

LOL! Egg on their faces.

That’s because, as has happened with practically all the bullshit Obama and the donkey idiots talked about changing back when running for the job of POTUS - as the anti-Bush I remind everyone - so they could make America respectable and cleans the evil of 8 years of Bush and his backward and barbaric policies, these geniuses are now eating crow yet again. And the NYT even tries so hard to make it look like Obama meant to do the right thing, but evil congress socked it to him.

About that union busting thang…

Let’s have some perspective. Really, one has to ask the question why we only hear about Wisconsin and evil republican Scott Walker when we have democrats across the nation doing much of the same:

In a March 16, 2010 campaign speech to state union leaders, California Gov. Jerry Brown urged them to “attack” his Republican opponent, warning that their election would spell big trouble for their members. What a difference a year makes: Last week, as he signed a bill that cuts $8.2 billion from the state’s $27 billion deficit, mostly by slashing labor costs, Brown was also, according to the Associated Press, urging his former campaign allies to be open to the pension concessions being pushed by Republican state legislators. Those concessions will cost union members billions. Two weeks before that Brown told six state unions to expect pay cuts of up to 10 percent.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country in an equally blue state, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley faced 15,000 union workers massed a the state capitol in protest of O’Malley’s own budget proposals, which will make only a modest dent in the $19 billion in unfunded pension liabilities and $16 billion in retiree health care. O’Malley plaintive defense at the rally was notable as much for its chutzpah as for its liberal parochialism: “You will not find in Maryland the sort of Midwestern oppression that you find in Ohio and Wisconsin!”, he declared.

Then you also have Malloy in Connecticut saying he wants to do the same kind of public spending concessions/cuts. I point out that Malloy is “saying” he wants these cuts, mostly to appease the other side that would otherwise be furious over the big tax hikes that budget of his also comes with, because frankly I believe he will only enact some measly token items and has as his real goal the tax increases. But it is funny as the author of this piece points out to watch demcorats doing much of the same as Walker is doing in WI without any media coverage.

Midwestern oppression? How about Maryland and California duplicity? What, one wonders, would Democratic governors and mayors do if they did not have Republican governors for comparison? In fact, the wage cuts and increased employee pension contributions being proposed in California, Maryland and New York are actually greater, on a per capita basis, greater than those being pressed by Republicans Scott Walker, John Kasich, Rick Scott and Chris Christie.

Especially when CA, MA, and even CT are asking for bigger concessions that the republicans that have done the same. Which makes it obvious that the real reason the unions and the demcorats are so desperate in WI is precisely the fact that Walker’s changes has also targeted their sweet honey pot of cash, considering the demcorats going after the public unions is happening at the urban level as well.

Meanwhile, blue cities are experiencing the same thunderstorm of irony as blue states. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles recently reached a deal with unions representing a third of his workforce that will double the amount the workers pay for retirement. His next step is to slug it out with unions representing police, firefighters and others. Back on the East coast, the public employee unions that have pretty much owned the county council of wealthy Montgomery County Maryland stormed the county’s offices last week, denouncing Democratic county executive Ike Legget for demanding more than the $25 million in concessions the unions had offered.

Nothing should put the criticality of what Walker is doing in WI, and the reaction from those affected in better perspective. The demcorats and the union bosses have decided to fight, and fight to the death, because Walker’s plans are going to hurt their pockets. Defend these fuckers. Once the public union members realize their income might just have gone up once they aren’t robbed with help from their employers, most of them will be happy as can be.

Pile it high!

Man, does the MSM ever get tired of shilling for the losers currently running the country? Take dumb Reuters article for example that claims that the reason the Europeans are going to for the first time in over a decade push a rate hike before the US is because of a power shift. Think about this. Who was the president 10 years or more ago? Whose the president now? No, the Europeans are doing the rate hike first because the people running the US right now don’t have a clue or are trying to avoid the consequences - at the polls - of having to do the rate hike now. The problem is how mismanaged the US economy has been for the last 2 years after the lefts push to force lending to bad risks ended up causing a collapse in the lending market tied to homeownership and the fact that the people in charge have no clue. Not a shift of power. But don’t worry, reality is going to come crashing down on their fantasies regardless of how inept they are.

Remember those promises of transparent government back during the election cycle?

Well, I think we can clearly state they were bullshitting us, and doing so hard. The stories, despite the MSM’s lack of interest, are numerous and paint a frightening picture of incompetence and plain old fashioned tyrannical abuse. We have the latest revelation about how Janet Napolitano’s DHS machine has completely politicized and corrupted the FOIA request process, turning it into a political exercise as to who gets access or not, with partisan political employees attempting to steal evidence - under ridiculous pretenses nevertheless - and even tampering with the process and witnesses in an attempt to conceal their clearly objectionable partisan behavior. DHS’s response?

Republican bad: Donkeys good.

That’s basically what all the hubbub from the usual MSM suspects and president Obama’s own speech tell us now. Iraq was wrong for all the right reasons. Now those reasons are right for Libya. Except we are doing it half assed, while denying to be doing it at all, and hoping it works out. And while Obama and his leftist apologists now are wasting millions on this adventure - that’s how the left referred to fighting anywhere by the US until recently - to get the Europeans their oil, of all things, we are blocked from getting our own here at home! At least Obama’s big bullshit speech didn’t piss off my wife which watches this nonsense.

Some perspective on what’s going on

Well, now we know what kinds of wars demcorats approve off: undefined conflicts led by committee better known in military terms as Charley Foxtrot (cluster fuck) operations, that have no define purpose or end, and most important of all, that wastes ton of tax payer dollars with no discernable return. In short, the left hates any conflict that serves real American interests, don’t get approval from the liberal elite committee, but unlike when the left -their MSM mouth pieces - made a big deal out of a carrier carrying a banner declaring it’s mission completed when Bush went there, now we are getting smoke blown up our ass and the MSM goes along.

We are being assured there is also no plan to go into Syria, a conflict that looks to address more US strategic interests considering how deep Assad’s Iranian boyfriends have their thing planted up Syria’s crack, by them. Considering how fast they flip-flopped on not going into Libya, one should take this with a grain of salt. These leftists love stretching our military thin on meaningless adventures while doing their best to leave them both ill equipped and with as many restrictions as possible to make the job as hard as it can be. I would not be Obama starts another war considering people are saying he has acted like a doofus and they feel he lacks what it takes to lead. He has something to prove before the 2012 election. Maybe even have a war he can then claim he walked away from! In the mean time they continue to bleed America dry on all fronts. I seriously keep going back between they are just inept and fanatically stupid about their ideas, and hence unable to see the damage they cause, or that they are doing this all on purpose. Either way, they are destructive and we will pay the price for letting them have power.

In the mean time we see what the country would look like with Biden as president. Best guarantee that we will not have some lunatic ever try to kill Obama. Whomever picked Biden as VP was a genius.

Not a week old and already falling apart?

Dang. Looks like Obama’s coalition is falling apart. The one put together to do regime change in Libya. I know the MSM isn’t going to use that word because then it might leave them with egg on their face. Considering the ruckus they caused when Bush said the same about Saddam back when, it is no surprise that now they don’t say that’s what Obama and the UN committee are doing in Libya to Gaddafi.

Deep divisions between allied forces currently bombing Libya worsened today as the German military announced it was pulling forces out of NATO over continued disagreement on who will lead the campaign. A German military spokesman said it was recalling two frigates and AWACS surveillance plane crews from the Mediterranean, after fears they would be drawn into the conflict if NATO takes over control from the U.S. The infighting comes as a heated meeting of NATO ambassadors yesterday failed to resolve whether the 28-nation alliance should run the operation to enforce a U.N.-mandated no-fly zone, diplomats said.

Heh, did the Germans just admit they believe the UN is as idiotic as I know they are? The regime change by committee thing must not suit them well. I had to laugh at this other revelation, though.

Meanwhile the head of the Italian Senate’s defence affairs committee, Gianpiero Cantoni, said the original French anti-NATO stance was motivated by a desire to secure oil contracts with a future Libyan government.

Heh! France is after oil? NO WAY!

Here is a prediction: these idiots fuck this up and Obama and the US are blamed when Gaddafi goes back to his old terrorist ways with a vengeance.

Update: Gaddafi already found way around the attacks.
