Psssst…Chrissy – Don’t Give Him Any Ideas…

What did I just tell you? They’re not even hiding it, anymore…

liberals + Totalitarianism = Utopia

Only they know what’s best for us. Only the Government can fix things.

Newsbusters reports:

Last week an agitated Chris Matthews tried to hold Dick Cheney accountable for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and this week Matthews is demanding action from President Obama, as the Hardball host pushed the President to nationalize the oil industry to solve the problem. On Monday’s Hardball a visibly angry Matthews demanded Obama go after BP: “Why doesn’t the President go in there, nationalize an industry and get the job done for the people?” and pointed out that in China they would have a much harsher response to BP: “They execute people for this. Major industrial leaders that commit crimes like this.”

Matthews even took aim at the entire capitalist system, as over video of the oil slick, he sarcastically mocked: “Everybody says ‘Capitalism is great. Unbridled free enterprise is great.’ Look at it! This is great, isn’t it?!” [audio available here]

Down with capitalism! Booooo! Booooo! Boooooooo!


Pssst….Woody – Don’t Give Him Any Ideas


The “Scoop” director said it would be a cool idea for President Barack Obama to be dictator for for a few years.


So he could get things done without all the hassle of opposing views getting in the way.

In an interview published by Spanish language newspaper La Vanguardia (that we translated), Allen says “I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.”

But wait – there’s more!

The director said “it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Lefties are totalitarians at heart.

Obama signs Freedom of Press Act, Then Refuses To Take Questions From Press

“Irony, thy name is Obama!” sayeth the commenters at CNN’s Political Ticker:

During a pooled press event in the Oval Office, President Obama was asked if he would take a couple questions.

“You’re certainly free to ask the question,” Obama told the reporters in the room. “I won’t be answering, I’m not doing a press conference today, but we’ll be seeing you in the course of the week.”

He was talking about the  “press availability” he will most likely have after his meeting with the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, which the CNN reporter notes  ‘are known as “two and two’s” referring to the number of questions each country’s group of reporters will be allowed to ask’.

In other words,  Insufficient, Mr President!

The most transparent President in history hasn’t held a press conference since last July. It’s almost like he doesn’t want bother, unless there’s something big to sell, and when the propaganda starts to wear thin, he withdraws.

Not that there was anything  wrong with this particular law:

The law, the Daniel Pearl Freedom of Press Act, expands efforts to identify countries where press freedom is being violated. The law is named after Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter who was beheaded by militants in Pakistan in 2002.

The law expands an annual report on human rights practices to include information about media treatment, and identify countries where the media is being repressed.

This from a guy who warns of the dangers of excessive debt while quadrupling it. Seems perfectly consistent to me. This clown broke my irony meter a long time ago.

Soros, and Dem Party Behind Fake Tea Party Group In MI

I knew in January, that the tea party movement was going to be the main target of the left, this year, leading right up to the election.  Their attempts to neuter the movement using race-baiting smears, and  the lame ” Coffee Party” imitation, fell flat, so they’ve moved on to plan C:  Outright fraud and deceit. But what else do you expect from Dem Socialists?

A new Tea Party group is trying to get on the ballot in Michigan as a third party, and the effort is being pushed by Progressive Campaigns Inc, and  funded by Soros, and the Michigan Democratic Party.

At what point will honest Democrats, observing how their party operates, finally recoil in horror and shame. Are there any honest Democrats, left?

The Blog Professor has the scoop:

This isn’t even AstroTurf. It is outright political fraud. Fearful of the tea party movement in Michigan (which Democrats and Republicans alike should be), the Democrats and/or their special interest groups have begun the process of officially hijacking the movement. Like in Nevada, they will likely launch their own ‘tea party’ candidate that is anything but. Unfortunately for the Democrats, 1) the tea party is more informed than they give us credit for; and 2) this news is breaking at the very conception of this slimy political move. The news was broken last night by Chetley Zarko on his website Outside Lansing: Zarko Research Exclusive: Dem Dirty Trick on Fake Tea Party Petition Revealed

Zarko Research has learned that a nefarious unknown group calling itself “The Tea Party” at PO Box 23 in Richville, MI 48757 (near Flint) is circulating a petition on a paid basis, at roughly $1 per signature to the circulator.  The group is so new that the Secretary of State has nothing on file as of this moment.

The petition was mailed to known paid circulators in the metro Detroit area earlier this week and based on conclusions of proprietary knowledge to Zarko Research, the petition is being operated by a liberal-leaning petition management firm with ties to the Democratic Party.  The petition claims to seek access to the ballot for an entirely new party – the “Tea Party”, although when Zarko Research interviewed known organizers of the Tea Party they all knew nothing about it.  …

Read the entire post. They’ve got them dead to rights.

What these fraudsters don’t understand is that the tea party movement is made up of a savvy, and alert citizenry…and the days when operations like this one, (which in years past  would have operated successfully under the radar), can fool the American people, are ovah.

See you in November, chumps.
