(OPINION) — Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is still a raging lunatic. She is comparing President Obama to deranged Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who killed 150 people, by “deliberately” crashing the plane in the French Alps. This is why the Republican Party is losing credibility…fast.

On Tuesday, Bachmann posted on her Facebook page:

With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?

I am sure Michele Bachmann thought she was making such a valid point and not coming off as the right wing lunatic we know her to be. What a moron.

Outgoing U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann takes credit on Twitter for the low gas prices in the U.S.  The failed presidential candidate posted a photo of herself standing under a gas station sign on Friday via Twitter with the caption, “$2 gas, anyone?”

Bachmann had pledged during her failed presidential campaign to bring gas prices back under two dollars a gallon. Never mind the fact that energy analysts have said the real reason for the low gas prices in the U.S. is largely due to an increase in supply and decrease in demand.

Here’s the reaction on Twitter:

Tea Party wingnut and soon-to-be former Rep. Michele Bachmann says she may run for the presidency in 2016. Really? What a mockery of the electoral process. Yeah, she’s bringing crazy back to the GOP.

Bachmann told RealClearPolitics, “The only thing that the media has speculated on is that it’s going to be various men that are running. They haven’t speculated, for instance that I’m going to run. What if I decide to run? And there’s a chance I could run.” Once again, another Republicans, clearly detached from reality is trying to hijack the electoral process by staging another clown show.

The last thing Michele Bachmann needs is to hire a campaign staff for any election. We know how that went in the 2012 presidential campaign. She claims the next time she runs, she will need a more loyal campaign team behind her, “I haven’t made a decision one way or another if I’m going to run again, but I think the organization is probably the key.” “To have an organization and people who surround you who are loyal, who are highly competent, who know how to be able to run the ball down the field in state after state — because now I think the primary process will be very different this time. It will tighten up; it will be a much shorter run than it was before.” Um, yeah, whatever.

She really thinks so very little of voters if she thinks she can jive her way into another election considering the mess that unfolded in the last presidential election cycle. Bachmann and her husband, Marcus, are being investigated by the FBI for possible money laundering and mail and wire fraud. There’s more…The FBI also turned over some information the Justice Department concerning her campaign illegally coordinating with Super PACS.

President Obama Calls John Boehner’s Threatened Lawsuit a “Stunt”

President Obama Calls John Boehner's Threatened Lawsuit a "Stunt"

President Obama Calls John Boehner’s Threatened Lawsuit a “Stunt”

President Obama isn’t caving in to the latest Republican Party sideshow of a threatened lawsuit over his executive orders. He called House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit threat a “stunt” and said he’s not going to apologize for being the president. It’s a sad day when even a Fox News host finds the threatened lawsuit a waste of time. Yeah, Neil Cavuto got in a shoutfest with wingnut Rep. Michele Bachmann earlier in the week.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News on Thursday, President Obama tossed the ball right back in John Boehner’s lap, saying he refuses to apologize for trying to get something done while they do nothing. I think Boehner and his colleagues fail to realize that the president has tools at his disposal, such as executive orders, that he can use in his authority as president.

Watch the interview:

John Boehner says, “We elected a President we didn’t elect a monarch or a king.” President Obama’s response to that comment was simply, “I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something while they’re doing nothing.” In short, Barack Obama is legally able to take some actions in his capacity as president and he’s not going to run from that just because Republicans are playing politics.

Obama  added, “You notice that he didn’t specifically say what exactly he was objecting to.”

The fact is, John Boehner is certainly not credible, since he couldn’t even get his own bill passed in the House. So, threatening to sue the president for using executive orders is laughable and asinine, at best. This was nothing more than an attempt to intimidate Obama and he’s fighting back.

Obama was told John Boehner claimed the lawsuit was over him not faithfully executing the law. President Obama emphatically said, “the suit is a stunt.”

The Republican Party has spent the last six years trying to derail every move President Obama makes, no matter how small and trying to make it seem that the George W. Bush presidency was great for the country, with Iraq and Afghanistan now blamed on Obama. You know, Obama’s Iraq, Obama’s Afghanistan, Obama’s NSA, Obama’s IRS, Obama’s VA, Obama’s Monarchy, etc….

I guess the lawsuit stunt has started to backfire, thanks to a Do-Nothing Congress presided over by a Do-Nothing House Speaker.  It has given the Democrats their biggest fundraising day of 2014.


Gov. Jan Brewer’s Anti-Gay Bill Veto Sends Strong Message to GOP Religious Extremists

AZ Gov. Jan Brewer’s Anti-Gay Bill Veto Sends Strong Message to GOP Religious Extremists

Could Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of the controversial anti-gay “Religious Freedom” bill, known as SB 1062, signify a turning point in the right wing evangelicals lunatics holding the Republican Party hostage? The religious liberty scams being pulled by people like Mike Huckabee and Rep. Michele Bachmann, is literally creating a huge problem for the Republican Party. The GOP is literally at war with itself. Well, the tide may be turning with Gov. Brewer’s veto.

Any political advantage the Republican Party hoped to gain by positioning itself as tireless warriors for the religiously devout is imploding. The efforts to apply the same religious freedom argument to anti-gay measures in states such as Arizona, Georgia and Mississippi, are being met with strong resistance. This is eerily reminiscent of the Civil Rights era, when blacks and many whites fought for racial justice and equality. Yes, against some religious scam artists. The fact is, SB 1062, and other similar bills, not only gained resistance from liberals, but from business leaders, Republican celebrities and GOP political officials. We are all collectively giving the religious right extremists a dose of their own medicine — the middle finger.

Republican Gov. Jan Brewer decided to buck the trend, despite the rallying cries from conservative windbag Rush Limbaugh, Rep. Michele Bachmann and many others, who felt that discriminating against the gay community was the right thing to do, for their own self-righteous sake. Gov. Brewer decided with whom she would stand and vetoed Arizona’s right-to-discriminate bill. She is now one of powerful group of conservatives who understand that religious freedom can’t be used as a tool for exemption from every law or issue conservatives don’t like. The threat to religious freedom can’t be imagined. It has to be verifiable. Gov. Brewer effectively admitted as such during her speech.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper had proven during an interview with GOP state senator Al Melvin, a supporter of SB 1062, that the freak-out from the religious right over discrimination because of their religious beliefs was imagined and not factual.  Melvin could not provide one example of what needs to be protected.

The ‘Stand Your Religion‘ law is akin to the ‘Stand Your Ground‘ law that allows people in Florida and in other states where it’s a law, to shoot dead anyone who ‘threatens’ them. No matter if the threat is imagined. Michael Dunn shot an unarmed black teen, Jordan Davis, over an altercation about ‘loud music.’ He could have very easily moved his vehicle if the music was such a bother. No, the gun gave him a sense of invincibility. So, he decided to start an argument with the teen, ending in a fatality. Curtis Reeves fatally shot Chad Oulson in Florida, after the two argued about the latter texting at a movie theater. The threat to retired police officer Reeves was a bag of popcorn.

Brewer said, “Senate Bill 1062 does not address a specific and present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona.” “To the supporters of the legislation, I want you to know that I understand that long-held norms about marriage and family are being challenged as never before. Our society is undergoing many dramatic changes. However, I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve. It could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want. Religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value, so is non-discrimination.” In other words, Gov. Brewer recognizes bullsh*t when she sees it. Namely SB 1062.

Brewer’s veto sends a strong message to the other states toying around with similar legislation. It’s not going to pass the smell test, much less be signed into law. There are far too many influential players on the sidelines in this dogfight. This uprising engineered by the right wing evangelicals is losing steam.

Of course, National Review editor Rich Lowry, is one of many Republicans who disagree with Brewer’s veto. He called it “foolish.”

A religious freedom statute doesn’t give anyone carte blanche to do whatever he wants in the name of religion. It simply allows him to make his case in court that a law or a lawsuit substantially burdens his religion and that there is no compelling governmental interest to justify the burden.

I have to ask Rich Lowry, should blacks have simply walked away from lunch counters where they weren’t welcomed to find other establishments? Or should they have found another means of getting to and from work after being told to sit at the back of the bus?  The fact is, Gov. Brewer just sent the message that those days are over when the right wing thought it could push its agenda while hiding behind the claim of religious freedom.

In closing, let me address the Stand Your Ground law because there are some shades of Jim Crow laws evident. Jordan Davis is our new Emmett Till. Florida Gov. Rick Scott should make the same argument about his state’s controversial ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. He said he would have vetoed the Arizona bill. How many more people, particularly young men, need to be killed in Florida before he takes a stand and ends this law?

Michele Bachmann Says President Obama Got Elected Because of White Guilt Over Slavery

Michele Bachmann Says President Obama Got Elected Because of White Guilt Over Slavery

Michele Bachmann Says President Obama Got Elected Because of White Guilt Over Slavery

Former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says the U.S. isn’t ready for a female president. Um, we were ready when she attempted a lame campaign, right?

The fact is, some Republicans aren’t even trying to hide their racism these days. How else can you interpret Bachmann’s comments to Cal Thomas that Barack Obama was only elected president because white people felt guilty about slavery.

Never mind the fact that there were no credible Republican candidates to go up against President Obama in either election. John McCain with his half-term governor running mate Sarah Palin during 2008 campaign were a pathetic joke. Let’s not even talk about Mr. 47% and binders-full-of-women 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

So, no. This wasn’t about white guilt but about GOP voter suppression tactics and race-baiting of Barack Obama. I suppose blacks, Hispanics and Asians don’t count. Only white folks elected President Obama twice:

Bachmann says a lot of people “aren’t ready” for a female president. “I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt.” (Presumably she means because of slavery and the lengthy denial of civil rights to blacks.) “People don’t hold guilt for a woman,” she says, adding that while people vote for women for virtually every other office “I don’t think there is a pent-up desire” for a woman president.

Michele Bachmann also claimed that the Tea Party can best Hillary Clinton. Still delusional…..

President Obama Signed Fewer Executive Orders Than George W. Bush

So much for the right calling President Obama a ‘dictator’ for threatening the go unilaterally via executive orders. The freak out after his State of the Union address was just ridiculous. They literally lost their minds after President Obama said he would raise the minimum wage for government contractors to $10.10 via an executive order.

Glenn Beck, who recently declared his remorse for being a divider, boldly deemed President Obama to be “America’s first dictator.” Conservative radio host Mark Levin said Congress should pass a resolution nullifying the executive orders, as if the president were ever to sign such legislation.

Of course, Tea Party wingnut Michele Bachmann couldn’t pass this up. She pulled out the frivolous lawsuit card, declaring that House Republicans may try to sue President Obama. Bachmann said, “He may think he’s a king, he may declare himself king, but that’s not what he is under our Constitution.”

Mr. Green Eggs & Ham, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, “Over and over again this president has disregarded the law, has disregarded the Constitution and has asserted presidential power that simply doesn’t exist and that ought to worry regardless of whether you agree with his policies or not.”


To date, President Obama has only signed 168 executive orders, compared to 291 executive orders signed by his predecessor George W. Bush. Um, President Bush signed more orders in his first four years, 173, than President Obama has signed in just over five. But the truth hasn’t stopped the right wing freak-out in the past.

Right wingnut Michele Bachmann (R-MN) says  “this is the happiest” she has seen her Republican colleagues in the House over the Ted Cruz-engineered government shutdown. Wow, I didn’t think anyone could even utter the word “happy” in the same sentence as a “government shutdown” that has seen thousands furloughed, programs for poor kids cut, the Centers for Disease Control operating on a skeleton crew, NASA basically at a standstill, among other areas of the federal government.

Bachmann, who appeared with Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) on Fox News, told Sean Hannity that she believes there has been “strong unity” between conservatives on almost every budget vote. She also said, “This is about the happiest I’ve seen members in a long time, because we see we are starting to win this dialogue on a national level.” Has this dumbass seen the latest CBS News poll which found 44 percent of Americans blame the GOP for this mess, with 35 percent blaming the Democrats and 17 percent blaming both sides. This comes days after the CNN/ORC International poll found 72 percent of Americans were against a government shutdown over Obamacare.

Michele Bachman, who is using veterans as a human shield, told the Washington Examiner that she and other colleagues didn’t fear a government shutdown because they viewed it as a chance to block Obamacare. Yeah, whatever. This is coming from someone with ZERO credibility.

Remember that slip-up on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ when she walked out to the band playing “Lyin’ Ass Bitch?” Maybe Quest Love and his crew were on to something with this racebaiter. She also dropped the ‘crack-cocaine’ comment about Obamacare. Yeah, we know exactly what she meant….

Javier Sanchez, a former staffer of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), was arrested for stealing from the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. Politico reports Sanchez, 37, was arrested July 11 and is facing charges of second-degree misdemeanor theft. He was fired and has denied the charges. Michele Bachmann is certainly going out with a bang.

This comes as Michele Bachmann is spewing venom again according to Right Wing Watch:  “In making her case against immigration reform, Bachmann warned that Republicans will lose control of the House of Representatives if any legislation passes because President Obama will “wave his magic wand before 2014″ and declare that all immigrants have the right to vote, just as he supposedly did in 2012 when he supposedly declared that anyone here under the age of 30 was allowed to vote which, of course, happened only in Bachmann’s fevered imagination.”

Michele Bachmann Iowa Court Date for Barbara Heki Lawsuit Set for May 2014

Michele Bachmann Iowa Court Date for Lawsuit Filed by Barbara Heki Set for May 2014 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A court date has been set in an Iowa lawsuit against Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), which alleges she stole and misused an e-mail distribution list maintained by an Iowa home school group during her failed 2008 presidential campaign. The Heki vs. Bachmann lawsuit is scheduled to start May 14, 2014.

A 12-page Polk County lawsuit filed last July alleges that two Iowans, Barbara and Richard Heki, suffered “severe emotional distress and loss of current and future business opportunities” after two unapproved emails were sent from the Bachmann for President campaign to members of the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators (NICHE).

The lawsuit names Bachmann, her campaign, former campaign chairman Kent Sorenson and five other Republican operatives, along with their personal business entities. It alleges that Sorenson stole the home-schooler database off Barbara Heki’s personal computer in early November 2011 as it sat in a Bachmann campaign office in Urbandale.

Court documents allege other campaign officials knew of and supported the theft, which quickly led to the Hekis being kicked off the NICHE board of directors. Source: Des Moines Register

Michele Bachmann’s fall from grace was a long time coming. I guess in a roundabout way, President Obama is getting the last laugh. Considering how many darts she has thrown at him, mostly lies. The timing of Michele Bachmann’s disclosure that she will not seek reelection in 2014 is weird, considering the court date was disclosed today. Seems to me Michele Bachmann is anticipating a blistering trial. In any case, this trial and the FBI investigation will make for an interesting GOP sideshow.
