‘Do you love liberty? Are you in favor of limited government?’ If you said yes to one or both of those questions,” he added, “you could be qualified as a terrorist,” says Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer, senior fellow at the Center for Advanced Defense Studies, about a taxpayer-funded study overseen by Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano.
Mediaite There’s a Global Jihad going on out there as evidenced by the growing number of Islamic terror plots that have been uncovered and/or averted so far. But according to DHS training manuals, if you read books by Right Wing authors, are very patriotic, or belong to “groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national ‘way of life’ is under attack,” you bear watching. This is the same Janet Napolitano who said a few years ago that returning veterans from war posed a threat to America.

A Strong Message Was Sent Alrighty – To O’Sucka and His Cronies – We Are Coming Next for You! Yo Ass is Going Down in November.
Obama Campaign Tries To Spin Wisconsin Recall Defeat: A “Strong Message Was Sent To Governor Walker”…
And that message would be, we love you Scott Walker!
WASHINGTON — The Obama campaign — which has largely kept President Obama himself out of the Wisconsin recall election — puts out a statement saying that a message had been sent to Gov. Scott Walker, despite his win.
“While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for — no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker. Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker, which amounted to a massive spending gap of more than $31 million to $4 million,” Tripp Wellde, campaign state director, said in a statement.
“It is a testament to all of those individuals who talked to their friends, neighbors, and colleagues about the stakes in this election of how close this contest was. The power of Wisconsin’s progressive, grassroots tradition was clearly on display throughout the run up to this election and we will continue to work together to ensure a brighter future for Wisconsin’s middle class,” Wellde said.
“This vision was shared by the voters tonight, as exit polling showed President Obama beating Mitt Romney 52-43, a 9-point difference. On the questions of who would do a better job on the economy and who would help the middle class the most, President Obama again held a strong advantage over Romney. These data points clearly demonstrate a very steep pathway for Mitt Romney to recover in the state,” Wellde said.

And the reason they hate right to work states. When workers have a choice, union numbers decline
It’s simple logic. When public employees have the choice of whether or not to pay union dues — as opposed to having them automatically pulled from their paychecks — the number of dues-paying union members shrinks. But these dramatic numbers out of Wisconsin are stillremarkable:
The state’s second-largest union, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, had membership fall to 28,745 in February from 62,818 in March 2011, the Journalsaid Thursday. The organization’s Afscme Council 24, composed of state workers, fell more than two thirds to 7,100 from 22,300 last year.
A key reason that membership dropped was because the labor law, championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker, forbids automatic collection of union dues. Instead, workers must voluntarily say that they want to continue to continuing paying dues to remain members of the union.
Union workers have also dropped out because of high pension and healthcare costs, and others believe that the unions are no longer influential.
The union bosses HATE this, it erodes their power, and thugs hate that!

Via Beltway Confidential:
President Obama’s former green czar, Van Jones, described the Tea Party as a group of “so-called patriots” who are trying to destroy America last weekend at a campaign rally on behalf of the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in the Wisconsin recall election.
“At this point in this struggle, it’s the so-called patriots who are the ones who are smashing down every American institution,” Jones said last weekend in Milwaukee. “It’s the so-called patriots, the ones who come out here with their Tea Party and the flags and call themselves patriots — they’re the ones that are smashing down our unions, smashing down public education, smashing down every American institution that we built, and our parents built, and our grandparents built to make this country great.”

Does the #Occupy Movement Speak for You?
October 25th, 2011 — “Occupy” movement, “The Great Recession”, 1389 (blog admin), CAIR, Canada, communism, economy, Florida, George Soros, leftist-jihadist convergence, mainstream media, Muslim Brotherhood, Nazism, NYC, Obama, the left, tuition bubble, unemployment
Lech Walesa rejects OWS
Some of the #Occupy movement signs and slogans seem to resonate with many onlookers. Maybe it’s because they’ve stolen a few talking points (but very little else) from the Tea Party. Maybe it’s because the sympathetic mainstream media carefully edits out what they don’t want you to see.
Let’s take a closer look.
Is this you?
Are you frustrated and angry about unemployment, inflation, the decreasing economic opportunities, the burden of debt, and the declining standard of living in North America, much of Europe, and elsewhere? Are you worried about the sovereign debt problems that bedevil the international financial system?
So am I.
Do you empathize with those struggling to make ends meet in low-paid, part-time jobs? Do you consider bailouts to be unconstitutional, politically and economically unwise, and morally wrong? Do you believe that the Federal Reserve system puts too much power into the hands of too few people who are not accountable to the voters and taxpayers?
So do I.
The Occupy movement blames our predicament on “billionaires”, “rich corporations”, and “Wall Street bankers”. They offer no basis for their accusations, but merely pander to the temptations of envy, sloth, and greed to which all of us are prone.
I agree with Herman Cain in placing most of the blame on Barack Obama and his failed policies. I also blame other public officials in the US and elsewhere whose policies brought about our financial downfall.
Whose side are they on?
Let’s see…the Occubaggers have got the commies, the socialists, the anarchists, the American Nazi Party, the George Soros front groups including the Open Society Institute, the Tides Foundation, and MoveOn.org, along with Code Pink and Michael Moore, the Muslim Brotherhood and its front group CAIR (more about CAIR and its connections here and here), the SEIU, the AFL-CIO, the leftist establishment media including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Frances Fox Piven, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Khamenei, Hugo Chavez, David Duke, and, of course, that architect of failure and scapegoater-in-chief, Barack Hussein Obama himself.
Along for the ride are the aging drugged-out hippies reliving Woodstock, the young drugged-out prep school and college kids looking for a place to fornicate al fresco, the paid shills, the student loan debtors with useless degrees, the trust-fund babies, the anti-Semites, the LGBT nudists, the race-card players, the outdoor urinators and defecators, the pro-abort feminazis, the tree-huggers, the vegans, and the mentally ill. (Many of these categories overlap.) Rounding out the rogue’s gallery are various drug dealers, crackheads, junkies, thieves, rapists, street bums and other lumpenproletariat, and felons hiding out from the law.
None of them speak for me.
Nor do they speak for Lech Walesa.
Former Polish President Won’t Attend #OccupyWallStreet After Citizen Journalists Expose Its Radical Roots
Lech Walesa, former president of Poland, champion in the fight against communism, and winner of the Liberty Medal and Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1989, has decided to not make a trip to New York in support of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
Last week the AP reported that Walesa was backing the Occupy “movement” and considered traveling to New York in support of the growing nationwide mob activity that currently plagues the United States. However, when former Illinois gubernatorial candidate Adam Andrzejewski, (For the Good of Illinois) found out about this, he quickly reached out to his contacts in Poland to alert the former president to the truth behind this radical movement.
“We made the point that the political themes of Occupy Wall Street may have started out with some of the principles that we share, but OWS themes were rapidly being morphed into anti-freedom and anti-liberty messages. At the core is the want for a big, powerful central government to dominate the lives of individual citizens.” -Andrzejewski
In his write-up last night at BigGovernment.com, Andrzejewski stated that with the help of BigGoverment and other sources, he was able to convey an accurate picture of the Occupy movement, particularly that it is “…organized by anarchists, Code Pink, the American Communist movement, jihadists, anti-Israel, socialist, and anti- free enterprise interests.” After reviewing this information about the true nature of the demonstrations, Walesa and his team withdrew their support and will not be attending any Occupy protests.
We were overjoyed to learn that recent Rebel Pundit investigative reports and footage were able to play an an important role in Walesa’s decision. According to Andrzejewski:
“They appreciated the inside info- they weren’t getting that in Poland from the European media.”

Republicans and Black Americans — a better story than you’ve heard.
Poet W. H. Auden said professors are folks who talk in other people’s sleep. True enough. I recall some nodding off in my college history classes (not by me, of course).
No one, however, slept through the history lesson Tuesday night at the monthly meeting of the Hillsborough County (Tampa) Republican Executive Committee. But then Frantz Kebreau is not your ordinary professor. If fact, he’s not a professor at all but an airline pilot and former Navy pilot with more than 300 carrier landings, taking some time away from the clouds to promote a more earthly understanding of the blessings of American freedom that people of all races can enjoy (at least and until politicians zero those freedoms out).
One of the favorite indoor sports of liberals is to call conservatives, particularly those with the temerity to embrace the tea-party, racist. To hear media-appointed black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpie, not to mention some of the more demagogic members of the Congressional Black Caucus, you’d think all white American conservatives, regardless of protestations to the contrary and spotless lives, are closet Ku-Kluxers who can barely contain their inner Bull Connor. These bigots we’re told, given half a chance, would have our black brothers and sisters on the back of the bus again in a heartbeat.
When there’s dumbness and demagogy in the air, Hollywood will be heard from. Morgan Freeman, a fine actor who can project intelligence and maturity on the screen, got in on the fun saying Republican efforts to retire Barack O’Barnum next year are “a racist thing,” and show “the weak, dark side of America.” Samuel L. Jackson, another black actor, echoed Freeman with this analysis of the campaign to replace our socialist president with a conservative: “It all boils down pretty much to race. It’s not politics. It’s not the economy.”
OK, I get it. White conservatives and Republicans (not entirely coterminous categories) aren’t really sore with O’Barnum for ballooning the national debt by $4 trillion and making national bankruptcy a real possibility, or for nationalizing one-sixth of the economy through Obamacare and generally trying to push as much as possible from the private to the public sector. It’s not about setting federal agencies on a jobs-killing regulation binge, or for traveling the world apologizing for America’s alleged sins and bowing before tyrants. It’s not his rejection of American exceptionalism and total ignorance of the importance to world stability of a militarily strong America either.
No, no. These items are just trifles. What conservatives are really sore with our community-organizer-in-chief about is that he’s not Caucasian. And isn’t that just like those racist Republicans?
Kebreau, whose parents immigrated to America from Haiti, is having none of this. Since 2009 he’s been on the news, talk shows, and speaking circuit making the point that, though few Americans know it, the record of the Republican Party for a century and a half has not only been more supportive of Black Americans than that of the Democratic Party has, but much more so.
In his Tuesday lecture before a couple hundred GOP activists in Tampa, Kebreau pointed out that the more than a dozen civil rights acts introduced into Congress over the past century and a half were all introduced by Republicans and opposed by Democrats, often vociferously. In each case a higher percentage of Republicans supported real civil rights than Democrats, including the all-important Civil Right Act of 1964. A full 80 percent of Republicans voted in Congress for this game-changing legislation that was the beginning of the end for Jim Crow. Only 63 percent of Democrats supported it, not including Democratic icon and former Ku Klux Klan member Robert C. Byrd, who filibustered it.
One hundred percent of Republicans supported the 13th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which ended slavery, while only 23 percent of Democrats did. The 15th amendment, giving all Americans the right to vote, was a 100 percent to zero percent Republican shutout.
Democrat Woodrow Wilson, our first true progressive president and touted by John Kerry as one of his favorites, segregated the federal civil service and the U.S. military and bears large responsibility for the decades of segregation that followed and the heartache, violence, and death required to put an end to it.
These historical facts are hiding in plain sight. But we live in an age of historical illiteracy. And these are not things members of the main(left)-stream media would like to talk about even if they knew them, which they don’t.
Nowadays black voters, usually in percentages north of 90 percent, are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Democratic Party. Things have been trending in this direction since the New Deal, which provided jobs for many unemployed blacks. The last Republican presidential candidate to receive more than 20 percent of the black vote was Tricky Dick in 1960.

In the United States, the Democratic/progressives are using a revised version of this age-old strategy, except instead of demonizing the Jews, they are demonizing the Tea Party.

People were even more surprised that when he took over the stage a few moments later, President Obama didn’t refute Hoffa’s statement and indeed praised the union leader for his service. Later when asked to comment, the White House press office declined to comment on the Hoffa comment.
It’s hard to understand why people are surprised, in fact people should prepare for more because it is very obvious that the Democratic Party’s 2012 strategy is to run against the tea party. This provides them with a way of attacking the GOP without attacking the GOP. It is also a way to avoid running on his record or the issues. “Boehner wanted to cooperate but he was forced to be stubborn by the tea party which puts ideology before country.”
If you haven’t heard that yet, trust me you will hear it much much more. Even though the tea party is a movement of grass roots Americans arguing for nothing more than smaller government and fiscal responsibility, they have and will be dehumanized by this progressive campaign that’s why the president didn’t blink at the violence of the Hoffa statement or when SCHMOTUS, Joe Biden doubled-down by calling their political rivals “Barbarians at the Gates.”
This anti-Tea Party strategy was kicked off the weekend of August 20 and 21 when President Obama, political adviser David Axelrod and former Press Secretary Robert Gibbs all criticized that “stubborn group of grass roots Americans.”
No follow that up with what we heard from Hoffa Jr, and the Vice President, the Democratic party attacks do not only seek to position the Tea Party as the reason the Obama Presidency has failed, no it is more nefarious than that. They are trying to dehumanize the Tea Party as Devils, who should be in Hell, Sons of Bitches that should be taken out, Barbarians, Jim Crow racists who want to lynch black people, and/or simply the enemy.
This dehumanization has/will serve many ends. Firstly it has deteriorated the tea party in the standing of the general public. Even though most Americans agree with the Tea Party goals, those same polls have shown that progressives have succeeded in tarnishing the Tea Party movement as radical.
The dehumanization of the Tea Party has provided the progressives with a common enemy which they can use to unite their base and even to attract independents. In Germany, it wasn’t Mr. Schwartz that was the enemy it was those Jews. In the US they can’t label Mrs. Jones who goes to a Tea Party rally bringing a lawn chair as the enemy, but it is very easy to aggregate all the Mrs. Jones and brand them as barbarians and Jim Crow racists.
Once the dehumanization is complete it all becomes easy. You see the public hates nasty discord and political name calling. But it doesn’t matter when the name calling isn’t directed at people, only against sons of bitches and racists who lynch black people the same way at first Jews were evil people who caused the economic collapse of Germany.
Some of you will read this and ask whether I am going too far, or maybe I need to switch to decaf. First of all I do not believe that the progressives are going to start rounding up all of the Tea Party Patriots, nor am I comparing what the progressives are doing to the Holocaust, noting fits into that category. What I believe is the demonization of the Tea Party will be a key component in the effort to re-elect Obama.
There is no other explanation. The same people that were blaming the tragic shooting of Gabrielle Giffords on supposed violent rhetoric are supporting the use of violent rhetoric against the Tea Party. Take DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Ms Gifford’s friend who was very vocal about the use of violent rhetoric. On Fox she practically tripped over her underwear trying to avoid saying anything bad about Hoffa’s violent words.
This is the ultimate cynicism of the progressives who are desperately trying to hold on to the reins of power. For the first time in ages, the American people have stood up and gotten involved with their own political future, but the progressive reaction is to brand them as something less than human.

In 2009, the Obama administration dropped the phrase “the war on terror,” revealing a reluctance on its part to call terrorists “terrorists.” The liberal establishment shows no such reluctance when describing Tea Partiers. “[T]hese Tea Party guys are, like, strapped with dynamite,” said former Obama administration official Steven Rattner. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman calls them the “Hezbollah faction” of the GOP.
Others described them as muggers, carjackers, jihadists, suicide bombers, and hostage takers. The only pause in this stream of invective came when these critics of the Tea Party welcomed Gabby Giffords back to the House of Representatives. The inimitable Joe Biden, who had agreed with these descriptions of the Tea Party earlier in the day, reminded Giffords of his “two craniotomies” and declared them “both members of the cracked head club.” Perhaps Biden offered other thoughtful words of comfort to Giffords but those weren’t recorded.
No sooner had the pleasantries with Giffords ended than liberals resumed their attacks on the Tea Party. The ferocity of the criticism, were it directed toward any other group, would probably lead liberals to call for a new hate crime category. Just last week, the Eugene Robinsons of the press were blaming the Norway shootings in part on what they see as the intemperate rhetoric of the right about militant Islam.
They saw no irony in savaging the Tea Party, amidst misty-eyed tributes to Giffords, because civility for them is not a moral concept but an ideological one. “Civility” is synonymous with the advancement of liberalism, so nothing they could possibly say about Tea Partiers, no matter how nasty, conflicts with it. On the other hand, Tea Partiers, according to this logic, are inherently uncivil for refusing to argue within the narrow parameters of debate set up by the establishment.
