Extremely Extreme Extremists
American Spectator, by Robert Stacy McCain

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/30/2013 6:24:32 AM

Democrats and their media allies have spent the past week labeling Republicans “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” and “terrorists” who are wholly to blame for the situation that we are told will soon lead to a government shutdown. (Snip)For three consecutive years — 2010, 2011, and 2012 — the Democrat-controlled Senate did not pass a budget bill because Reid knew that it would be a political liability to do so. Passing a budget that detailed the Democrats’ plans for spending and revenue as official policy would have exposed the “something for nothing” swindle that Reid and his colleagues are perpetrating on the

Excellent article. I know that the media is totally in the tank for Obama and the democrats, but can someone please tell me why Republicans can´t make the argument that this writer did when they get before a camera? Heck, if need be, print out the article and read it word for word. It would be better than the information you get from a Republican on any given day. Our side needs to pass out talking points like the democrats do. Reasoned common sense arguments to Obama´s irrational policies are pretty obvious. Why hasn´t Harry Reid produced a budget? That´s a pretty good question and an excellent start to any interview. Be pro-active. Ask the interviewer the questions that the media never bothers to ask. Then given them the answer. It may throw them off their game.

The Republicans could get in front of the cameras and read the entire article, but Fox News and conservative blogs would be the only ones to report it. We should be thankful that more people are turning to Fox for their new because that means some of the GOP message is getting out. The other stations totally ignore the GOP side of the argument, or find a statement that sounds weird to focus on when it´s taken out of context. I am not defeatist this is the reality.
The GOP Congresspeople are using more media to get their message out. Most have a Facebook page and are on Twitter.
Last week I went to the NRSC Facebook page. They were getting some serious verbal abuse from upset members of the electorate. The messaging can go both ways. When the phones aren´t answered, go to Facebook or an even more public forum, Twitter. When the GOP does take a to move our platform forward, we should also publicly praise their efforts on these social media sites.

Other than a few senators and HR Republicans, I am having a hard time seeing any difference in the two parties.

Yes, excellent article! Thanks for posting.

The media is responsible for much of the problems facing our nation. Their behavior is criminal. It is very difficult for the truth to surface and blaming the Republicans is ridiculous. We need to unite behind the Republicans and do every thing we can to get out the truth. It is difficult to see how this nation can survive with the current state of our media. However, for some reason, I still have hope.

Obama, Reid and Pelosi are using this ACA budget battle to destroy the opposition party. And if not outrightly destroy it, so weaken it that at best, Republicans get elected to dogcatchers and that´s about it. I watched some of the MSM Sunday news shows, and if only the Republican guests would have reminded the viewers that the ACA pased with no Republican votes. That even the New Deal, Medicare, etc had some bipartisan support. And you don´t think the Libs would be on the offensive if a bill passed with no Dem votes? As much as Obama must hate it, we are still a (barely) representational republic and that some of us still have a voice.

The Republican House funded everything but what a majority of the country is against and that is obamacare. DO NOT CAVE Speaker Boehner. For one shining moment stand up for America ! The harm from this law is so far reaching and pervasive that the shut down that it pales the shut down that the Democrats are causing. They have a spending bill before them. If they vote it down or refuse to vote then they are the ones shutting down the government. DO NOT CAVE . Save our economy and our country.

It´s hardly realistic to say this is a broad consensus. It is the insider trading, the investments democrats and traitor republicans made which explains their hard headed nature in standing behind ACA. Their pot of gold won´t happen if ACA is not implemented.

On the heals of being schooled on foreign policy by Putin and Assad, Obama is desperately trying to establish himself as a tough negotiator at the expense of the American people. A true statesman would admit the mistake that is Obamacare and let the American people off the hook and pass a budget that begins to turn this fiscal mess around.

Instead, we are the dog that gets kicked because he had a bad day on the world stage.

FTA: Republican challengers campaigning against Democrat senators could have cited their votes for the budget bill, saying that the incumbent voted for this, that, or the other unpopular component of the measure.

And - -

If America’s journalists had ever told the truth about what Barack Obama and Harry Reid have done, neither of them would be in office now.[snip]This false portrayal of the current situation is the exact opposite of truth, but it is widely believed because the journalists who did so much to re-elect Obama (and to defend Reid’s Democrat Senate majority) have continued to act as partisan propagandists.

We know this is the case. Then, why, almost without exception, do Republicans speak to media or go on these shows and accept the leftist premise of analysis and questions? If Republicans know the truth about their subject and are passionate enough about letting others know what they know, then - it seems to me - they will find a way to get that message across regardless of the tactics used against them. Just do not be deterred from speaking the truth plainly and don´t waste time or words in empty rhetoric. That´s how Ronald Reagan did it. That´s what Ted Cruz does, as do others. Point being that some responsibility rests with Republicans to find a way to get their message across despite biased reporters and lying Dems. I realize that´s easier said than done, but that old maxim ´where there is a will there is a way´ is grounded in truth. The truth will set all of us free.

Was there any doubt about media bias? Some think that our salvation is Fox News, but they hammer the House for "their next move" after they sent their CR to the Senate. They just made their move. Why not ask the Senate what they intend to do? Then, they fret that Republicans are going to get blamed for a shutdown.

The House needs to recognize that the Republican "Tea Party types" were elected to a majority to stop obama from steam rolling Congress. After all, that´s what John Roberts said in his opinion. It´s up to Congress to make these changes. And, that is exactly what we expect them to do.

Republicans, you control the House that represents The People. Legislation and budgets cannot be passed without your approval. Pick up your muskets and fight. If you quit on us now, we will remember in 2014.

++Harry Reid´s methods can be placed at the feet of the Tea Party. They promoted Sharo Angle against a strong candidate, Sue Lowden, for Harry´s seat. Lowden would have defeated Reid, and the shame that is currently the senate might never have happened.

This is what I have been arguing with my Congressional Rep about for the last year. IMO the House should have been voting on nothing but a budget bill for the last 4+ years to force the Senate to do their jobs! But no....the Republicans are too afraid of being blamed!! Yeah. I´m Angry! We should all be very Angry!

I was and am 100% sure that the Republicans will be blamed for the shut down. Obama, Reid and the media have pursued that narrative for months if not years.

Republicans: "Mr. Reid, please prepare and pass a budget, as required by law."

Media: "Republican terrorists are at it again."

It´s all so predictable, no matter the issue.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America´s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government´s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America´s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ´the buck stops here.´ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Time for word clarity. Call it communism. They all call it "affordable care" and Obamacare. Clever words of propagandists, that make it sound good. In fact, it’s the “abortive care” act, and it’s actually “Obamacide”. You know, like suicide, genocide, homicide, but not “care”; no “care” in this misery. Nobody has the guts to call this a Communist medical scheme, with its forced fees, forced compliance and IRS police state enforcement just like the KGB in Communist Russia. The Communist democrats will now force young adults to pay, or be forced to pay a fine, or risk going to jail. It is total tyranny, Millions losing jobs, and nobody’s screaming about these horrors. Time to come out of the closet of mincing words, of not facing truth, this is the time to name names. Communism, a massive plot to close down 20% of America’s great economy and make it a horrifying government controlled disaster. Medical is going “postal”. Imagine, millions of lo-fo postal droids, in their losing racket, making medical decisions over life or death of your body and your mind. Postal psychologists? What a nightmare. All the amazing life extending technological gains in medicine brought to a government halt, a monopoly standdown, just like Benghazi. We are being taken over by communist brainwashing of commies Diane Sawyers, Brian Williams, Steve Pelleys, who have led us down the path to virtual dictatorship and tryranny controlled by our imposter president and a drunken power mad Congress of communist believing democrats and too many commie republicans. Communist debt is here. Wake up America.

The article spells out nicely what common sense has been telling us since 2009; Obama and his flying monkeys have been spending our grandchildren´s money with abandon in an attempt to make themselves look good and to buy votes to continue the pillage.

Obama and family have been living like an N-rich royal family on our money while the country´s economy slowly circles the drain, artificially propped up by Chinese loans.

The party is over. The bill is coming due and spending planned for the next year will expose the empty checkbook. It will suck to be a dem in 2014.

While I agree with what the Republicans have done and feel they should stick it out regardless of any consequences, it´s likely a losing cause; just too many stupid people. Too many that fall for the "we´re trying to give you something and they won´t let us!" Democrat lies.

It´s really as simple as that. People are stupid and the Dems know it. So they can pair with the dishonest media and pretty much convince the idiots of almost anything.

#2 ~ when you get back to Ol´Har on this one please note for him that it´s backfiring on the Democrats.

The story that even the MSM is telling is that the House sends over a bill that the Senate rejects. Then the House sends over another bill that the Senate rejects; then another, that the Senate disposes of like yesterday´s newspaper.

The House is necessarily seen as the initiator of action and the Senate as the body that stops the action.

Goobama (Goober Obama) is seen as the village idiot flipping his lips and humming.

Or maybe he´s buzzing his comb on a piece of napkin.

It will not be news when the Senate votes for something, or when Goobama signs something ~ it´s only news when they reject another good idea from the House.

#25, it isn´t deceit, it is duplicity! They are doing everything they can to be complicit with the will of the WH. Certain channels, in particular, get direct orders from the WH on what they can, and cannot air! That is staterun media, not bias, not deceit, but duplicity.

Then, the WH openly admits they are legalizing, and using propaganda. Now, just whom do you think they are using it on, especially after having been busted spying on their own citizens?!

It isn´t other countries Obama fears, it is people that tell the truth, people that think for themselves, and people that can, and want to live indepently of the government. Those are the very ones being labeled as "terrorists" now.
Remember Obama´s Julia? From the cradle to the grave, they are from the government, and there to help. On our dimes, quarters, and dollars.

And a duplicitous media continues to carry the water for him.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary. Her White House biography touts her key private-sector experience as president of the massive

Can You Lie in Politics?
Supreme Court Will Decide

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
