Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

So much has gone on in the past month, I wish I had a real blog to have gotten my thoughts out on subjects like this that are of interest to me. Perhaps myspace or facebook are worth looking into moving all my stuff over to and having a decent format to talk about whatever, but given time constraints and all, as usual, I’ll have to settle for my current craptacular arrangements.

So yeah, black Tuesday is almost upon us, just two days away. For the first time in American history, it appears that a bona fide Bolshevik may actually succeed in capturing the WhiteHouse… THAT is what makes this election historic, not the irrelevant fact that Barack’s existence is due to the result of a black man from Kenya having donated sperm into a white woman from Kansas… Barack should neither be rewarded for being a mixed-race candidate, nor should he be punished for it. Personally, I think he’ll be rewarded (affirmative action style) more so than punished for it by any racist voters. Of course, ideally, he should be judged entirely by the [disturbing] contents of his mind, and most importantly, who helped fill/shape that mind (which in Barack’s case is unfortunately an unseemly array of Marxist-Communists, aka ultra-leftwing freaks) but we are far from Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech these days… more like “I have a scheme…”

I predict come Tuesday’s election results, and I pray to God that I am wrong, that communist-terrorist Bill Ayers will be celebrating, communist-terrorist Bernadine Dorhn will be celebrating, PLO communist-terrorist anti-semite Rashid Khalidi will be celebrating, members of Communist Party USA, the ACLU (aka American Criminal Liberties Union) will be celebrating, communist dictators/leaders the world over will be celebrating (e.g. Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, etc.), yesss ladies and gentlemen, in other words, lots and lots of left-wing freaks will have smiles on their faces!!! Finally, one of their own will be in command of the WhiteHouse… Mr. “Spread the Wealth Around” himself and oh boy is he’s spreading lots of it around (30 minute TV spots even) thanks to the massive ~$641 million dollar warchest that’s he’s generated. You do have to feel sorry for the bastards in a way. The poor little darlings have waited so long; they deserve this as far as they’re concerned!! All the revolutions, all the killings, the purges, all the Bill Ayers bombs that exploded, etc., finally, it has come to this!!! YAY! Yes indeed, it will be very historic in their eyes… as well as catastrophic for the rest of us, but I digress… 😉

The fix is just in folks… It just is… He’s outspending McCain 4-to-1… No republican can win the WhiteHouse without Ohio and if one recalls, Bush won it by ~118,000 votes or so back in 2004. Well, Barack’s ACORN claims to have registered 200,000 new voters in that state, and recent court rulings have permitted a) same day voter registration and voting, all without having to prove residency and b) listing a park bench or homeless shelter as your place of residence to allow the homeless to vote!!! The voter fraud potential this has enabled is enormous… Anyone from a neighboring state could come over, claim they are homeless, state that the park bench under the tree next to the duck pond is their home and be allowed to vote. Forget visitors, how many multiple votes could an actual state resident cast with made-up identities? Bingo! The perfect stolen election all thanks in part to democrats’ consistent unwillingness to move to a system requiring picture ID cards among other things… Now you know why they’ve been blocking that. We’ve been turned into one of those banana republics you hear about, folks…

Anyway, I originally wanted to rant solely about how democrats are basically just getting away with blaming our current economic meltdown on republicans and actually stand to benefit politically from the havoc that they have caused, but more stuff popped up that I wanted to get into. However, I’ve spent too much time on what I already wrote, so I’ll have to cut it short. Basically, I have two more of Barack’s communist friends I wanted to report on, Frank Marshall Davis, a black communist and member of the CPUSA and Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO mouthpiece, yessss, THAT PLO: the KGB’s most enduring achievement formerly headed by that terrorist-loving sick bastard, Yassir Arafat. Sure enough, just as with Billy “bombthrower” Ayers, Rashid Khalidi was installed in the University of Chicago to spread his poison which is how he ran into our beloved messiah, candidate for president, Barack “NOT-THAT-HUSSEIN” Obama… Gotta love the American university system, eh? It’s crawling with all sorts of Marxist-Communist trash… Very very diverse.

Alright, so finally getting to something that’s really been pissing me off. Democrats ran Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ground, used it as their own personal piggie bank, resisted attempts to reform the rampant corruption that became fairly evident and when it all blew up, their scapegoat was Bush, republicans, capitalism. And there’s ole Barack running around doing the same, blaming Reagan, capitalism, deregulation, etc. meanwhile it turns out he took advice from the disgraced CEO Franklin Raines who ran Fannie Mae into the ground and made out like a bandit with $90 million dollars to boot… Thankfully, somebody wrote a wonderful article that captures the outrage of what has happened. So, I’m gonna post that along with some more youtube videos and call it a wrap. First the youtube videos of interest:

*** Top Ten Reasons NOT to vote for Barack Obama 10-1

*** Obama & Friends: History of Radicalism (Volume 1)
*** Obama & Friends: History of Radicalism (Volume 2)

Watch the following video at least before reading the article below; it will put the article into context and you will NOT believe the utter incompetence and corruption the democrats display, but guess what, they’re ALL gonna get away with it cause they’re democrats and most of the media provides them cover: – Shocking Video Unearthed Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis

Finally, a must-read article that tries to set the record straight: (Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn On the Lights?)

An open letter to the local daily paper — almost every local daily paper in America:  I remember reading All the President’s Men and thinking: That’s journalism.  You do what it takes to get the truth and you lay it before the public, because the public has a right to know.  This housing crisis didn’t come out of nowhere.  It was not a vague emanation of the evil Bush administration.   It was a direct result of the political decision, back in the late 1990s, to loosen the rules of lending so that home loans would be more accessible to poor people.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were authorized to approve risky loans.   What is a risky loan?  It’s a loan that the recipient is likely not to be able to repay.”The goal of this rule change was to help the poor — which especially would help members of minority groups.  But how does it help these people to give them a loan that they can’t repay?  They get into a house, yes, but when they can’t make the payments, they lose the house — along with their credit rating.   They end up worse off than before.   This was completely foreseeable and in fact many people did foresee it.  One political party, in Congress and in the executive branch, tried repeatedly to tighten up the rules.  The other party blocked every such attempt and tried to loosen them.   Furthermore, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were making political contributions to the very members of Congress who were allowing them to make irresponsible loans.

(Though why quasi-federal agencies were allowed to do so baffles me.  It’s as if the Pentagon were allowed to contribute to the political campaigns of Congressmen who support increasing their budget.)   Isn’t there a story here?  Doesn’t journalism require that you who produce our daily paper tell the truth about who brought us to a position where the only way to keep confidence in our economy was a $700 billion bailout?  Aren’t you supposed to follow the money and see which politicians were benefiting personally from the deregulation of mortgage lending?   I have no doubt that if these facts had pointed to the Republican Party or to John McCain as the guilty parties, you would be treating it as a vast scandal.  ‘Housing-gate,’ no doubt.  Or ‘Fannie-gate.’

Instead, it was Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, both Democrats, who denied that there were any problems, who refused Bush administration requests to set up a regulatory agency to watch over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and who were still pushing for these agencies to go even further in promoting sub-prime mortgage loans almost up to the minute they failed.  As Thomas Sowell points out in a essay … ‘Alan Greenspan warned them four years ago.  So did the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers to the President.  So did Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury.’   These are facts.  This financial crisis was completely preventable.  The party that blocked any attempt to prevent it was the Democratic Party.

The party that tried to prevent it was the Republican Party.   Yet when Nancy Pelosi accused the Bush administration and Republican deregulation of causing the crisis, you in the press did not hold her to account for her lie.  Instead, you criticized Republicans who took offense at this lie and refused to vote for the bailout!   What?  It’s not the liar, but the victims of the lie who are to blame?   Now let’s follow the money right to the presidential candidate who is the number-two recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae.   And after Freddie Raines, the CEO of Fannie Mae who made $90 million while running it into the ground, was fired for his incompetence, one presidential candidate’s campaign actually consulted him for advice on housing.

If that presidential candidate had been John McCain, you would have called it a major scandal and we would be getting stories in your paper every day about how incompetent and corrupt he was.   But instead, that candidate was Barack Obama, and so you have buried this story, and when the McCain campaign dared to call Raines an ‘adviser’ to the Obama campaign — because that campaign had sought his advice — you actually let Obama’s people get away with accusing McCain of lying, merely because Raines wasn’t listed as an official adviser to the Obama campaign.   You would never tolerate such weasely nit-picking from a Republican.  If you who produce our local daily paper actually had any principles, you would be pounding this story, because the prosperity of all Americans was put at risk by the foolish, short-sighted, politically selfish, and possibly corrupt actions of leading Democrats, including Obama.

If you who produce our local daily paper had any personal honor, you would find it unbearable to let the American people believe that somehow Republicans were to blame for this crisis.   There are precedents.  Even though President Bush and his administration never said that Iraq sponsored or was linked to 9/11, you could not stand the fact that Americans had that misapprehension — so you pounded us with the fact that there was no such link.  (Along the way, you created the false impression that Bush had lied to them and said that there was a connection.)   If you had any principles, then surely right now, when the American people are set to blame President Bush and John McCain for a crisis they tried to prevent, and are actually shifting to approve of Barack Obama because of a crisis he helped cause, you would be laboring at least as hard to correct that false impression.

Your job, as journalists, is to tell the truth.  That’s what you claim you do, when you accept people’s money to buy or subscribe to your paper.   But right now, you are consenting to or actively promoting a big fat lie — that the housing crisis should somehow be blamed on Bush, McCain, and the Republicans.  You have trained the American people to blame everything bad — even bad weather — on Bush, and they are responding as you have taught them to.   If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth — even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.   Because that’s what honorable people do.  Honest people tell the truth even when they don’t like the probable consequences.  That’s what honesty means.  That’s how trust is earned.

Barack Obama is just another politician, and not a very wise one.  He has revealed his ignorance and naivete time after time — and you have swept it under the rug, treated it as nothing.   Meanwhile, you have participated in the borking of Sarah Palin, reporting savage attacks on her for the pregnancy of her unmarried daughter — while you ignored the story of John Edwards’s own adultery for many months.   So I ask you now: Do you have any standards at all,” in journalism, left? “Do you even know what honesty means?   Is getting people to vote for Barack Obama so important that you will throw away everything that journalism is supposed to stand for?   You might want to remember the way the National Organization of Women threw away their integrity by supporting Bill Clinton despite his well-known pattern of sexual exploitation of powerless women.

Who listens to NOW anymore?  We know they stand for nothing; they have no principles. That’s where you are right now. It’s not too late. You know that if the situation were reversed, and the truth would damage McCain and help Obama, you would be moving heaven and earth to get the true story out there.   If you want to redeem your honor, you will swallow hard and make a list of all the stories you would print if it were McCain who had been getting money from Fannie Mae, McCain whose campaign had consulted with its discredited former CEO, McCain who had voted against tightening its lending practices.   Then you will print them, even though every one of those true stories will point the finger of blame at the reckless Democratic Party, which put our nation’s prosperity at risk so they could feel good about helping the poor, and lay a fair share of the blame at Obama’s door.

You will also tell the truth about John McCain: that he tried, as a Senator, to do what it took to prevent this crisis.  You will tell the truth about President Bush: that his administration tried more than once to get Congress to regulate lending in a responsible way.   This was a Congress-caused crisis, beginning during the Clinton administration, with Democrats leading the way into the crisis and blocking every effort to get out of it in a timely fashion.   If you at our local daily newspaper continue to let Americans believe — and vote as if — President Bush and the Republicans caused the crisis, then you are joining in that lie. …  You’re just the public relations machine of the Democratic Party, and it’s time you were all fired and real journalists brought in, so that we can actually have a news paper in our city.”
