Obama’s Job Hemorrhaging, Union-Busting “Recovery” Rolls On

by Scott Creighton

As the corporatist shills drone on about the “success” of the Obama Stimulus Package, more and more jobs melt away like the steel trusses in the Twin Towers.  The lucky few that still cling to their paychecks by their fingernails are “persuaded” to accept less and less for each day of their labor by the relentless pressure of their mortgage payments, their ballooning insurance premiums and co-pays,  and their constantly rising utility costs.

Economists are starting to say the worst is over, and that the economy is growing above where it would be without a stimulus. MSN

The reason they say that? “We have lost LESS jobs than we would IF we hadn’t passed the Stimulus Plan“… of course, these are the SAME economists that said the Housing Bubble wouldn’t burst and that the TARP bill would ease credit restrictions to keep people in their homes and put people back to work. Yeah.  How did that work out?

Obama & Biden To Protect Bush Administration Criminals

(I wonder how many lives it will take before the “progressives” can start to admit they were had? Will they ever see it, or are they the new “brown shirts” of America?”

by Paul Joseph Watson, at Prison Planet, here.

stand-with-obama-2It’s par for the course for Obama and Biden, the men who promised “change” but in every step of their preparations for assuming office have pursued nothing but continuity, to acknowledge that they will protect criminals in the Bush administration from prosecution for authorizing torture, a complete violation of both the U.S. constitution and the Geneva Conventions.

When asked by ABC host George Stephanopoulos if top level Bush administration officials would be prosecuted for mandating prisoner abuse, Biden said that he and Obama would be “focusing on the future,” adding “I think we should be looking forward, not backwards.”

“She Took Godless Money!” “She’s a Witch!”. WTF?

by Scott Creighton

Elizabeth Dole is running behind in her race. Apparently, way behind. So they come up with this unbelievable ad suggesting, of all things, her Sunday School Teacher opponent is a heathen. That’s right; in the land of religious freedom, what they come up with 6 days before the election is just one step above… “She’s a witch!”.

OMFG. How sick is this fucked up country? The worse thing about it? They say at the end, she took “Godless money!” Godless money? What is that? I thought mammon was the root of all evil? WTF is “Godless money?”. I guess that money that Halliburton and KBR stole from us and let soldiers die in the showers from electric shocks was “sanctified fucking money”?

What a sick fucking country we have where something like this would actually be thought up, and polls would show that it would be worth doing. If this bullshit has any affect on anyone, this country of morons is doomed. We are a nation of monkeys with SUVs, credit cards, and “I Voted” stickers on our foreheads. Super wealthy, power starved ego maniacs talking down to average Americans like they are swine.

Only in a nation so sick, that worships wealth and status above all else, is something this ridiculous even possible. Elizabeth Dole should be mortified. The entire republican party should be disgusted. Send ms dole a little “thank you” note for making the entire country look like idiots. And while you are at it, send her opponent a buck or two of that godless money you have lying around, so she can put an add out there that says “Elizabeth (Skankythin) Dole blows terrorists for crack!”. It’s only fair.

“She’s a Witch!”

and I am out of the election business. Go someplace else for the pathetic updates of billionaires slinging poo in a mad desperate dash for ticket to the big party. I am doing one article on the person I am voting for later and that’s it. These people are sickening. All of them. Politicians are the only human beings worse than bankers.

Racist Rally Videos: Who Do They Really Help? You Might Be Surprised

by Scott Creighton

 

I was about to put up another video here, when while having a chat with a family member, something very sinister occurred to me (not like that doesn’t happen all the time; just check out my site). The video was filmed on Oct. 26 2008 and it went straight up on Youtube. They must have burned the midnight oil on the editing.

 

The video was, yet again, another in a series of racist rants from some people waiting in line outside a McCain rally. These videos are a dime a dozen now and I don’t think any of them can compare with the classic “Obama-Monkey Guy” which will surely rank that asshole up there with “Leave Britney Alone Guy” and “Chocolate Rain Guy” (a grouping I am sure will please the racist bastard to no end). I ran an article on that video and posted it like many other liberal/democratic sites did, simply because it was just shocking to say the least.

 

Now don’t get me wrong, racism is a big problem in this country, especially now. I certainly haven’t got to go into details on that.

 

But lets face it; if this fact surprises you at this point, you are probably a middle-class white educated suburbanite living in your deed-restricted bubble, shopping in your heavily guarded malls, and you rarely ever watch anything but Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann. It’s out there, in many different colors and forms. Just like it has been for a long time. And when the economy gets worse, so does racism. It bubbles to the surface like that green stuff at the beginning of every zombie movie, that just seems to come from nowhere and turns normal people into brain eating, inarticulate monsters.

 

So, what was that sinister thought I had while watching this video of abject racism? Very simple; why go looking for it and who do these videos really help?

A Simple Comment to Obamatrolls Everywhere

by Scott Creighton (taken directly from a comment I left on ADS, a good site, where I was talking to a fascist Obamatroll. Quite frankly I am sick of these bastards, and if anything, their absolute, slavelike devotion to the “Party” makes me want to cast three votes for McCain. One day, they will realize they have been duped, but unfortunately it will be way too late. Let’s hope they don’t turn in too many of their neighbors before that day.)

You did everything you could to stall any discussion of impeachment here and it had NOTHING to do with Conyers. Conyers was your smokescreen at times, but then there were many others. It’s easy enough for new readers here to go back into the archives of this site and pull up the article from 3 and 4 months ago. When they do, they will see that your tactics were exactly as I claim they were.

And your efforts to quell impeachment efforts were not restricted to this site (ADS). All anyone who is interested has to do is Google your “handle” and comments you have left on other sites as well will come up, and they will see that this is something that you did regularly. It became the ONLY thing you did.

And that was because, like you said, you thought it would hurt Obama’s chances.

You would viciously attack commenters here, you would post inaccurate information, you would do just about anything to try and divert topics away from ways to approach the impeachment issue.

Well, you got what you wanted, so you should be proud. You will get an election unencumbered by justice, so your precious ObamaGod will have a chance to win. After all that, you come here again, now to try and dissuade commenters from voting their concious.

Your fascism is no different than theirs (republicans). You are a troll and an embarrasment to real liberals everywhere.

Antiwar Vets Attacked By Police Outside Debate

by Lucy Herschel and Hannah Wolfe from the Socialist Worker, here.


WHILE BARACK Obama and John McCain were getting makeup touchups for their Wednesday night debate at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y., police outside made sure that the voices of antiwar veterans wouldn’t be heard.

Officers of the Nassau County Police Department reacted with reckless violence to a protest organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) outside the debate site. Among several people injured in the assault, former Army Sgt. Nick Morgan was knocked unconscious and his cheekbone broken when he was trampled by a police horse.

(Then, in order to create a paper trail to cover up what they had done to the veteran, they arrested him… while he was unconscious)

Reports of Vote Switching Already…

by Paul Nyden, here.

At least three early voters in Jackson County had a hard time voting for candidates they want to win.

Virginia Matheney and Calvin Thomas said touch-screen machines in the county clerk’s office in Ripley kept switching their votes from Democratic to Republican candidates.

“When I touched the screen for Barack Obama, the check mark moved from his box to the box indicating a vote for John McCain,” said Matheney, who lives in Kenna.

Racist “Obama Monkey” At Palin Rally

What is probably even more disturbing than this racist piece of shit holding his ‘Little Hussain” doll, is the fact that no one in that crowd waiting in line to see Sarah Palin, seemed to object. You wonder how seemingly normal, “civilized” people can though hoods over their heads and burn crosses?

“Truth and good Americans.”

The Surge That Failed

Obama Talks Tough About Afghanistan; Here’s What He’s Really in For

By Anand Gopal from Alter Net, here.

A bit past midnight on a balmy night in late August, Hedayatullah awoke to a deafening blast. He stumbled out of bed and heard angry voices drawing closer. Suddenly, his bedroom doors banged open and dozens of silhouetted figures burst in, some shouting in a strange language.

The intruders blindfolded Hedayatullah and, screaming with fury, forced him to the ground. An Afghan voice told him not to move or speak, or he would be killed. He listened for sounds from the next room, where his brother Noorullah slept with his family. He could hear his nephew, eight months old, crying hysterically. Then came the sound of an automatic rifle, after which his nephew fell silent.

The rest of the family — 18 people in all, including aunts, uncles, and cousins — was herded outside into the darkness. The Afghan voice explained to Hedayatullah’s terrified mother, “We are the Afghan National Army, here to accompany the American military. The Americans have killed one of your sons and his two children. They also shot his wife and they’re taking her to the hospital.”

“Why?” Hedayatullah’s mother stammered.

“There is no why,” the soldier replied. When she heard this, she started screaming, slamming her fists into her chest in anguish. The Afghan soldiers left her and loaded Hedayatullah and his cousin into the back of a military van, after which they drove off with an American convoy into the black of night.

Obama Calling Black Lawmakers in the House to Get Them to Vote Yes On The Bailout

by Scott Creighton

Barack Obama has sold us out again.

This bailout proposal is bad for us. That much is clear. It’s a giveaway to Wall Street bankers and investors and will cripple our economy for the next 2 to 3 years at least. Many economists agreethat the new provisions added to the bill really don’t do anything to help the average people out there; just more tax breaks and the FDIC is increasing insurance for the wealthy account holders. Aside from that there isn’t much there.

But that isn’t stopping the Democratic Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, from actually helping this corrupt Republican administration push this scam down our throats by using his influence to persuade Representatives in the House to vote for it.

Black lawmakers said personal calls from Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama helped switch them from “no” to “yes,” as Republicans and Democrats alike said appeals from credit-starved small businessmen and the Senate’s addition of $110 billion in tax breaks and other sweeteners had persuaded them to drop their opposition.”  MSNBC 

Later in the article the claim is made that the mood of the public has shifted on this issue since Monday.

Let me explain that one; Obama has voted for this measure and come out publicly, since Monday, and stated that something must be done and this plan is better than the last one. He is wrong on many accounts of this in the first place, just ask Dr. Dean Baker at the Institute for Policy Studies, but that isn’t really the point; the point is that BECAUSE the democratic nominee has come forward in support of this theft, many “progressive” sites have stopped criticising it as they think it may harm Obama’s chances, just like the deafening silence after Obama signed on for the FISA bill that he once promised to filabuster.

But apparently his endorsement wasn’t enough, and so the DNC has Obama out front leading the charge to get this extortion signed into law before any real hearings on the matter can take place, before any other options can be explored.

In reality, Obama is using his leverage with the vast majority of the American voting public and hundreds of “hopeful” websites, to royally screw us over… again.

And you still want to vote for this prick? This is what you call “change”?

What Does Gov. Palin Have in Her Right Ear?

by Scott Creighton

What was that running down into Sarah Palin’s right ear during the debate?

***UPDATE***

This photo was never intended to stand alone as evidence, that is why I include the link to the CNN video itself… That is still below. From that video, and many others now, you can see something that looks like it is attached to the arm of her glasses on the right side. You can see it move with her head, and her glasses throughout the video. I have taken another shot of the straight on view of this object, but please, look at the photos, then watch the CNN video so you can see it isn’t just some fluke; it stays there and is attached to her glasses.

This photo was taken straight from CNN’s video on their breaking news website. It’s a screen-shot from their video of the debate.

There were very few moments where Palin’s right side was in view of the camera, but actually it can be seen from the straight on views as well. Here is the original screen-shot I took.

Even without zooming, you can clearly see something attached to her glasses and running into her right ear. At first I thought this might be a hearing aid of some sort, so I looked up other pictures of her to see if I could find one of her wearing a hearing aid. I couldn’t.

 

By all accounts, Sarah Palin surprised a lot of people as she held her own in this debate. Is this why?

I have not touched up this shot at all. If anyone knows where I can find a picture of Gov. Palin wearing a hearing aid in the past, please let me know.

But this certainly looks like someone was whispering in Sarah’s ear during the debate.

Another question this brings up is why wouldn’t Biden say something about this? Is the election such a sham these days that he would sit by and say nothing?

How the GOP Wired Ohio’s 2004 Vote Count for Bush to Win

(So. 2004 was Nader’s fault? Wake up.)

Steven Rosenfeld, AlterNet – An election whistleblower who is a Republican, a nationally known data security and computer architecture expert, and an Ohio resident has filed a sworn affidavit in federal court that describes how Republican Party consultants in 2004 built an electronic vote counting network in Ohio that could have stolen votes to re-elect the president.
