Shock Report:DHS “Right Wing Extremism” Methodology Exposed

Last April, Americans for Limited Government filed a Freedom of Information request asking for all documents related to the “right-wing extremism” memo. A PDF of the DHS report, here. This memo, which sent shockwaves throughout the conservative blogosphere,  was described at the time as an embarrassingly shoddy piece if propaganda”.

It really was:

“Our worst fears about what went into this memo have been confirmed. The government department that was supposed to be tasked with identifying domestic terrorist threats is apparently using news stories, kooky websites, and conjecture instead of actual hard intelligence reporting and analysis,” said Wilson.

“This is a disgrace, and calls into question what it is that the so-called ‘Extremism and Radicalizaton Branch of the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division’ actually does,” Wilson added.

Full report, here.

Fox News did an exclusive report on this, earlier, today:

“It looked like someone’s afternoon of snooping around on the web”.

Ummm?!

Just noticed: Five of the eleven sites mentioned in the summary of web links are The Southern Poverty Law Center, described by Discover the Networks as a Montgomery-based civil rights law firm founded in 1971, that:

  • Monitors the activities of what it calls “hate groups” in the United States
  • Exaggerates the prevalence of white racism directed against American minorities

Surreal: Obama Says He Has “Not Said That He Is A Single Payer Supporter”

Obama said this at his town hall meeting, today.

Via Ace:

Okay, that was in the past tense. He not even saying that he’s not currently supporting single payer. He is saying he has never supported single payer.

WTF?!

Why doesn’t he just admit the obvious? Seriously? I can tell you one reason so many people are showing up at these town hall meetings, and protesting ObamaCare. They know they are being lied to, and they don’t appreciate it.

And here, via Hot Air is Obama comparing the public option to the post office:

“it’s the post office that’s always having problems.”

Also, Karl in the Greenroom at Hot Air has a useful list of  6 Obama lies (misinformations) about ObamaCare. It’s hard to keep up with them all, so it’s nice to have a few of them all in one place.

UPDATE:

Oh lookie.

Michael Moore is super impressed with Obama’s “rope-a-dope strategy” to advance his side’s causes, and said so in an interview:

I take all of the things that make me nervous about the decisions that Obama has made, and I look and them through that lens – that it’s some kind of master plan. It’s like his continued support of a government-run option for health care. If a true public option is enacted – and Obama knows this – it will eventually bring about a single-payer system, because the profit-making insurance companies won’t be able to compete with a government plan and make the profits they want to make. At some point most of them will probably have to bow out of the business.

Moore’s frankness even earns praise from the far more temperate David Gergen:

I’m glad to have someone of Michael Moore’s honesty say that the public option on health care is, in fact, designed to be a pathway to a single-payer system. Because the Democrats have essentially, “That’s not true.”

The same guy who demanded a “truth commission… a serious criminal investigation” into the Bush administration’s supposed lies, says:

Look, this guy [Barack Obama] is a very good basketball player – he fakes right and goes left. He says he’s going to keep 50,000 troops in Iraq. But I would be shocked if, three years from now, there are 50,000 troops in Iraq. He says these things to keep the wolves away from the door, and it works. The other side seems to buy it. That’s why I admire his craftiness here.

Guess what, dumbass. The wolves are at the door, and they’re not amused:



Video: Coulter VS Carville on ObamaCare And Town Halls

Carville sums up the popular uprising against ObamaCare as a bunch of  angry people who are politically frustrated because they lost two elections, nothing more, nothing less:

We’re just sore losers….So that’s the Dem strategy to combat the valid concerns of ObamaCare opponents?

Wow…okay.

And every economist in the world says the stimulus is working beautifully.

Seriously?

This comes in this morning from USA Today

Stagnant unemployment, shrinking tax revenue and a struggling economy threaten to quadruple the size of last year’s federal budget deficit, raising more questions about the timing of costly proposals to overhaul health care.

As the White House and Congressional Budget Office (CBO) prepare to release new deficit estimates this month, several economists say the news is likely to be as bad as or worse than forecasts.

“This is going to be a very depressing outlook,” predicts former CBO director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, top adviser to Republican John McCain in last year’s presidential election. “They have just a nightmare in terms of these health care bills, which do nothing but make things worse.”

It’s like these people are living in a  unicorn populated, enchanted land of make believe. And all they have to do is slay the dragons, (who refuse to shut up and get out of the way), and we’ll all live happily ever after.

Todays poll from Rassmussen shows support for ObamaCare has fallen to a new low, just 42%, while 53% oppose. That’s a whole lotta sore losers.
