Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza got blasted on Twitter after comparing himself to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Yes, he had the nerve to compare himself to the civil rights icon.

D’Souza tweeted: “AN INTERESTING PARALLEL: MLK was targeted by J. Edgar Hoover, an unsavory character; I was targeted by the equally unsavory B. Hussein Obama.”

Um, that’s not even funny. It’s pathetic. MLK stood for something quite unlike Dinesh D’Souza.

Here are some tweets mocking Dinesh D’Souza:

Despite the chorus of Republicans shriek-fest that Barack Obama is one of the worst presidents in American history, the economy has improved under his watch. That’s more than his predecessor can say. Today, the DOW closed about 18,000, the first time ever. Gas prices are dipping below $2 a gallon in some places and a majority of Americans believe the economy is in good shape. Additionally, the gross domestic product (GDP) is the best in a decade.

Bolstered by robust spending among consumers and businesses alike, economic output rose at an annual rate of 5 percent during the summer months, the Commerce Department said Tuesday, a sharp revision from its earlier estimate of 3.9 percent. The advance followed a second quarter where growth reached a rate of 4.6 percent after a decline last winter that was exacerbated by particularly harsh weather.

The revision was led by an upswing in investment by businesses, a force for growth in most economic recoveries but one that has lagged in the latest rebound. Higher consumer spending and a healthier trade balance also helped. The gain makes the third quarter the strongest since the summer of 2003.

The upbeat data was welcomed by traders on Wall Street, lifting the Dow Jones Industrial average above 18,000 for the first time.

Although the growth rate is expected to decelerate somewhat in the current fourth quarter, the improved view in the rearview mirror corresponds with other evidence suggesting that the economy is moving to a higher gear.

“The data today is very consistent with a U.S. consumer that is doing quite well,” said Michael Gapen, chief United States economist at Barclays. “Consumers are receiving a boost in the form of lower gas prices but they are also feeling more confident about their own futures because of the stronger labor market.” Source: NY Times

Alan Keyes Says President Obama Wants to Become the Next Adolf Hitler

Failed Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes appeared on “Trunews” on Tuesday, warning that President Obama is trying to become the next Adolf Hitler. Really?

Keyes told host Rick Wiles that while the government should follow God’s laws, Obama wants to become God and appoint himself Führer: “We are not, as citizens, always supposed to be trying to lift up some Fuhrer the way the Germans thought. Führer was their word for leader. They wanted to lift up some Führer who would dictate to their country the way Obama is trying to do now and tell us what to do.”

Keyes, who was Obama’s Republican opponent in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois, has repeatedly warned that Obama is becoming a Hitlerian dictator.

Decrying Obama’s “dictatorial actions,” Keyes accused the president of “importing” undocumented immigrants “in order to facilitate what I think is an overthrow of our Constitution.”

“We’re teetering, we’re more than teetering on the brink, I actually think we’re falling through the abyss, headed toward a rock bottom when our institutions will crumble the way the Twin Towers suddenly fell in that terrible day in 2001,” he said. Source: Right Wing Watch

SMH: Sen. Ted Cruz Accuses Obama of Aiding Hamas, Plotting Against Israel

SMH: Sen. Ted Cruz Accuses Obama of Aiding Hamas, Plotting Against Israel

Sen. Ted Cruz, the engineer of last year’s government shutdown, is hitting back after his ridiculous accusation that President Obama of imposing an economic boycott of Israel because the FAA halted planes from flying to and from Tel Aviv. The State Department called his accusation “offensive,” but that’s a word Ted Cruz doesn’t understand.

The FAA cited a “potentially hazardous security situation created by the armed conflict between Israel and Gaza,” when it banned U.S. airlines from flying to Ben Gurion airport. Cruz claimed, “The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel, in order to try to force our ally to comply with his foreign policy demands.” What facts? I didn’t realize Benjamin Netanyahu was calling the shots were the welfare of Americans are concerned. Who’s helping who?

Ted Cruz is digging in though his assertions are utterly ridiculous. He claims “This FAA flight ban may well represent a crippling blow to a key economic sector through both security concerns and worries that additional bans will down more flights and strand more passengers. It hardly matters if or when the ban is lifted. At this point, the damage may already be done.” Really? Has he been living under a rock? I guess the Malaysia Airlines flight 17 missile attack that claimed the lives of 298 people, some of whose bodies have yet to be recovered, means nothing to him. Tell me again why this moron is considered a credible presidential candidate?

Can you imagine if a U.S. plane was hit by a Hamas rocket on its descent into Ben Gurion airport? What would Ted Cruz and his lackeys have to say?

 

John Boehner Needs to “Man-Up” with Ridiculous Obama Lawsuit Over Executive Orders

House Speaker John Boehner deserves to be kicked out of office, as was the case with Eric Cantor. The lawsuit he is threatening to file against President Obama for using executive orders to get around a D0-Nothing Congress is nothing but a distraction meant to foment the right wingnuts taking over the GOP.

It’s pretty damning when the staunchly conservative Erick Erickson is telling the House GOP to ‘man-up’ over the Obama lawsuit.

John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt.

John Boehner and the House Republicans want to sue the President of the United States. Instead, they should man up.

227 years ago, when the founders of the nation set about drafting the constitution, they gave the House of Representatives the exclusive power to initiate revenue bills and impeach the Executive. That the House would sue the President over his use of executive power is an indication that its leadership no more values their own powers under constitution than the President they sue.

Erickson’s rebuke comes in response to John Boehner’s  op-ed for CNN in which he explained why he pursuing a lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. Funny he wasn’t so vocal when George W. Bush went all out with his executive orders.

Thanks to Right Wing Lunatics in Congress, Obama Dissed at Nebraska Parade

Thanks to Right Wing Lunatics in Congress, Obama Dissed at Nebraska Parade

I might also add, such shenanigans have continued to embolden the fringe elements in the Republican Party to go full force with their offensive and racist rhetoric against Barack Obama. Just this past week, during the  July 4th parade, in Norfolk, Neb., a float of President Obama’s presidential library as an outhouse sparked controversy. But it all got a lot of cheers from the fringe elements. So, thanks Speaker Boehner, along with Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Michele Bachmann, and others, you have managed to make the GOP a live grenade for black and Hispanic voters. The racist disrespect of Barack Obama continues….Shameful.

 

SMH: Americans for Prosperity Ad Uses Obama’s Head on Stalin’s Body

Here We Go Again: Americans for Prosperity Ad Uses Obama’s Head on Stalin’s Body

Americans for Prosperity in Michigan is out with a new advertisement featuring President Obama’s head on Stalin’s body. No surprise there. Only, the right wing forgot pushing that vile rhetoric backfired in a big way during the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.

Talking Points Memo reports “An advertisement for a State of the Union watch party in Michigan sponsored by AFP features Obama with the Kremlin in the background. The ad reads “Thank You, Comrade Obama: for Saving the Children from the menace of guns, family, liberty, work, and other outdated values.”

Why won’t these geniuses take a look at the poll numbers for Republicans in Congress? They are far worst than President Obama’s. Hint, hint…..

Hillary Clinton Political Hit-List Include Top Betrayers John Kerry, Claire McCaskill

Hillary Clinton Political Hit-List Include Top Betrayers John Kerry, Claire McCaskill

The latest freak-out to make the news cycle on Monday is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political ‘hit-list’ of enemies. Politico’s ‘bombshell’ is adapted from Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ new book “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.

The authors allege that Clinton and her aides kept an extensive spreadsheet on endorsements from the 2008 election. People on the list were graded on a one to seven scale, with one being the “most helpful” and seven being the “most treacherous.” Among those getting a ‘seven’ grade are Sens. Claire McCaskill, Patrick Leahy, Jay Rockefeller and Rep. Chris Van Hollen. There are some on the list who received leniency because of their special ties to President Obama, such as members of the Congressional Black Caucus and lawmakers from Illinois.

The article reports that aides to Hillary Clinton were only too happy when their enemies fell:

Years later, they would joke among themselves in harsh terms about the fates of folks they felt had betrayed them. “Bill Richardson: investigated; John Edwards: disgraced by scandal; Chris Dodd: stepped down,” one said to another. “Ted Kennedy,” the aide continued, lowering his voice to a whisper for the punch line, “dead.

Sen. Claire McCaskill crossed the Clintons big-time:

When the Clintons sat in judgment, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) got the seat closest to the fire. Bill and Hillary had gone all out for her when she ran for Senate in 2006, as had Obama. But McCaskill seemed to forget that favor when NBC’s Tim Russert asked her whether Bill had been a great president, during a Meet the Press debate against then-Sen. Jim Talent (R-Mo.) in October 2006. “He’s been a great leader,” McCaskill said of Bill, “but I don’t want my daughter near him.”

McCaskill regretted her remark instantly; the anguish brought her “to the point of epic tears,” according to a friend. She knew the comment had sounded much more deliberate than a forgivable slip of the tongue. So did Hillary, who immediately canceled a planned fundraiser for McCaskill. A few days later, McCaskill called Bill Clinton to offer a tearful apology. Bill He was gracious, which just made McCaskill feel worse. After winning the seat, she was terrified of running into Hillary Clinton in the Capitol. “I really don’t want to be in an elevator alone with her,” McCaskill confided to the friend.

The fact is, if this is all true, the Clintons NEVER forget. You cross them once, you make it on their sh*t list. No-one should be surprised that the toughest political dynasty in the US kept close tabs on friends and enemies. I am more concerned about the type of campaign Hillary Clinton will run if she throws her hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential elections.

GOP Rep. Michael Grimm: Obama Has ‘Founding Fathers Turning Over in Their Graves’

GOP Rep. Michael Grimm: Obama Has 'Founding Fathers Turning Over in Their Graves'

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) says President Obama has the “founding fathers turning over in their graves” over his executive actions,which includes a plan to extend high-speed Internet connections to virtually every school in the U.S.

Grimm also said President Obama “doesn’t care what the people think” in his quest to get schools on the cutting edge of technology. Um, how stupid is that comment? I am pretty sure high speed Internet in schools will only help all students. But since that involves the children of poor and working class Americans, Michael Grimm finds Obama’s move so terrible.

“It’s just a flagrant, you know, arrogant disregard not just for the current Congress,” Grimm said in an interview with Fox News. “Look, it’s not about me personally. That’s not what this is about. You think about who is the Congress? It really — it is the voice of the people.”

Obama has asked the  Federal Communications Commission to hike a telecommunications fee to help pay for the ConnectEd program, which is estimated to cost between $4 billion and $6 billion. According to The Washington Post, that could translate into an increase of about $12 spread over three years in cell phone users’ bills.

[..]

“He has an agenda and he’s going to do whatever he has to do to pass that agenda, regardless of the Constitution,” Grimm said. “I mean, I think our founding fathers are turning over in the graves right now because he’s just so blatant in his— the administrators, the people he puts in charge of these agencies are bold and brazen about saying, ‘yes, we’re going to make an end run around Congress.'” Source: The Hill

This fits in quite nicely with the garbage we heard from Rick Santorum during the 2012 presidential election campaign, where he called President Obama an ‘elitist’ for encouraging all students to get a college education.

Judge Robert Ruehlman said Richardson violated a position of trust and is a criminal, noting she is supposed to be a guardian of free elections.

Ruehlman told Richardson that President Barack Obama would be appalled by her conduct.

Hey Michele Bachmann, George W. Bush is Most Expensive Ex-President with Over $1.3M (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)

As Rep. Michele Bachmann continues to spew lies about President Obama’s ‘lavish lifestyle’ at the taxpayers’ expense (four personal chefs and a dog walker for Bo), Politico reports that former president George W. Bush is the most expensive ex-president.

According to Politico, “The costliest former president? George W. Bush, who clocked in at just over $1.3 million. That includes almost $400,000 for 8,000 square feet of office space and $85,000 in telephone costs.’

That’s a big chunk of the “the nearly $3.7 million on former presidents last year” by the federal government. “That covers a $200,000 pension, compensation and benefits for office staff, and other costs like travel, office space and postage.”

Um, imagine how much of our taxpayer dollars was spent when he was president. Add the Iraq War to that as well, since he took us into war on a lie. All that is lost on the right wing, including Michele Bachmann, who should be worried about her ethics investigation.
