Once Upon A Time Republicans and Democrats Agreed On Illegal Immigration

Once Upon A Time Republicans and Democrats Agreed On Illegal Immigration

Ironically, in 2006, all of the players you now see polarized had agreed to an immigration reform bill co-sponsored by Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican John McCain. Said bill is now way too sane for McCain to put his name to, as he is busy selling his soul to the radical right and taking his friend Lindsey Graham down with him. Anything to keep his seat. Country First. Yada yada.

AZ Gov. Jan Brewer Politicizes Border Violence in Arizona

AZ Gov. Jan Brewer Politicizes Border Violence in Arizona

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is using drug related border violence to justify a draconian and perhaps unconstitutional law, but the two have nothing to do with one another. In fact, in the video the reporter says, “he (Officer Pinal) was tracking the five suspects as they transported marijuana and other drugs…” So if Brewer wanted to deal with this issue, she should have written a law dealing with drug trafficking and undocumented fire arms, not people who “look undocumented”. Hey, I’m just assuming she’d want to narrow the field down to the dangerous folks if her argument is the threat of violence.

Babygate: Fox News Reports that Bristol Palin had a Son in Sept 2008

Babygate: Fox News Reports that Bristol Palin had a Son in Sept 2008

Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol both testified at the email hacking trial of David Kernall, which found him guilty of 2 out of 4 charges. The trial lasted just two days. In reporting the verdict this evening, Fox revealed, “Bristol Palin said she was distressed to find pictures of her newborn son in the public eye after her mother’s e-mail was hacked.” But Bristol’s baby supposedly wasn’t born until December of 2009.

Spill, Baby Spill: Explosion Gives Environmentalists Regulation Firepower

Spill, Baby Spill: Explosion Gives Environmentalists Regulation Firepower

The “Drill Baby Drill” proponents are eerily silent as the oil spill in the Gulf, which could become one of the worst recent environmental disasters of this nation, threatens hundreds of species of fish, birds and other wildlife. The massive explosion and subsequent oil spill of a rig in the Gulf of Mexico may lead to reinstating the expired moratoriums on off-shore drilling as well as new regulations, which oil giant BP says it is expecting.

The Truth is Out: Palin’s VP Debate Answers Were Scripted

The Truth is Out: Palin’s VP Debate Answers Were Scripted

The false narrative continues as Steve Schmidt (aka, the Bullet) reveals Palin’s debate answers were memorized and scripted. What’s the difference between a Palin debate and a movie? Not much apparently. Sure, American politicians sell a cult of personality, but must it be so disingenuous as to include main characters like W and Palin? Can’t the GOP find someone who can read? Aren’t candidates supposed to have some ideas, something they stand for and shouldn’t they be able to discuss that topic without memorizing answers?

Sarah Palin Encourages Franklin Graham to Spread the Holy War Against Muslims

Sarah Palin Encourages Franklin Graham to Spread the Holy War Against Muslims

Unwilling to let any chance for more publicity via her specialty of moral poutrage sprinkled over Dim-Sum pass her by, Sarah Palin takes to her facebook page to decry the Pentagon’s decision yesterday to dis-invite Franklin Graham from National Prayer Day. In doing so, Palin demonstrates yet again how little she thinks/knows of the law, inviting satire as the only possible rebuttal available to all reading citizens.

Teabagger No More: Brown Endorses Romney over Palin for 2012

Teabagger No More: Brown Endorses Romney over Palin for 2012

Scott Brown (R-MA) appeared on NBC-TV’s “Today” show this morning. Brown made his break with the Tea Party final by announcing he would support Mitt Romney over Tea Party darling Sarah Palin, dashing the hopes of many Tea Partiers who had fantasies of a Palin/Brown ticket in 2012. The support of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin’s endorsement are assumed to be responsible for getting Brown his seat in the special election in January of this year.

Franklin Graham’s One Man Jihad Against Freedom of Religion

Franklin Graham’s One Man Jihad Against Freedom of Religion

Franklin Graham wants to use democratic principles to establish Christianity as the official state religion of the USA. He uses the idea of representative democracy and majority rule to qualify repression of the Muslim faith and sanction Christianity as the official religion of the United States of America.

Palin Fans Unleash Political Terrorism on Senator

Palin Fans Unleash Political Terrorism on Senator

Lest you think that the Palin 2008 rallies of hate were an anomaly, Palin fans are now attacking Senator Yee, who called for an investigation of Stanislaus State after University administrators refused to supply Palin’s speaking contract, claiming they didn’t have it. The rage, hatred, bigotry and violence that Palin fans have put on display here has a goal: to silence the Senator. In other words, this is political terrorism.

Sarah Palin’s Dangerous Vision of America

Sarah Palin’s Dangerous Vision of America

When she’s not inciting violence, GOP 2012 front-runner Sarah Palin is selling a manifestly incorrect distortion of the constitution, which she invariably gets mixed up with both The Pledge of Allegiance and the song, “America the Beautiful”. Her goal is to create a Christian Nation, where the bible has dominion over the law.

Barack Obama Rocks Change for LGBT Community

Barack Obama Rocks Change for LGBT Community

Today we can celebrate Hopey ordering the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a rule that would prevent hospitals who participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs (the majority of hospitals) from denying visitation privileges to gay and lesbian partners, among other groups who suffer discrimination under the current prevailing policy of “relative-only” visitation.

Barack Obama the Tax Slasher Versus The Tea Party

Barack Obama the Tax Slasher Versus The Tea Party

The last time middle classes taxes were this low was in 1995 (2008 was an exception). A big, whopping thank you to President Obama and the Democrats for looking out for the middle class instead of the wealthy. Meanwhile, “Tea Partiers” are out protesting their taxes, half of which they don’t pay, while others have been reduced.

Palin Contract Scandal Shredder Gate Blows Up

Palin Contract Scandal Shredder Gate Blows Up

Palin’s controversial speech at Cal State University leads to Shredder Gate scandal. State Senator Yee (D-Ca) gave a press conference today regarding Shredder Gate. Not only did the university deny they had the records, but later claimed that they could not release the Palin contract due to a rider specifying privacy in Palin’s contract.

Palin’s Latest Scandal: Bendy Straws, Lear Jets and Shredded Documents

Palin’s Latest Scandal: Bendy Straws, Lear Jets and Shredded Documents

It kinda looks like she quit to line her pockets. So, I guess it wasn’t all about “progressin’ Alaska”. But ya’ know, money isn’t everything. A girl’s gotta have values, also too. And helpin’ us understand HRH’s “common sense conservative values” is her contract with the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation, where Palin is scheduled to “speak” at a June 25 gala hosted by the foundation to mark the university’s 50th anniversary.
You probably guessed by now that there’s more to this story, as hypocrisy, cover-ups and scandal are just par for the course for the Conservative darling.

The WikiLeaks Video and Progressive Responsibility in Unnecessary Wars

The WikiLeaks Video and Progressive Responsibility in Unnecessary Wars

I protested the Iraq war, way before it was cool to do so, and the Wikileaks Video of “Collateral Murder” demonstrates why I opposed the invasion, but I also spent a week embedded with training soldiers, as they took on the exhaustive task of preparing for battle. Those on the left who criticize miss the point as their self-righteous reaction is a simplistic denial of their own complicity in allowing this war to be fought.

Weekly Round Up of Republican Wing Nut Circus April 10, 2010

Weekly Round Up of Republican Wing Nut Circus April 10, 2010

It’s hard to keep up with the Republicans these days. They’re a regular three-ring circus being lead around by leaders like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck — two out of three of whom we know didn’t finish college. We haven’t seen Palin’s degree from the 5th or 6th college she attended, but recklessly, we are taking her word that she graduated. Personally, I’m still waiting to see her high school diploma, but that’s just me. At any rate, with leaders like this, it’s no wonder that the Republicans are going up in flames.
