Victory! – for the Non-Resistance

The More Effective Evil has trounced those Republicans with evil intentions. Folks who never made a single demand of the corporate, war mongering Democrat think they are some kind of victors. “The non-resisters have won a non-victory against an unimpressive enemy,” while Obama plots new atrocities.

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford, from BAR

Obama is the more effective austerity president – if the Republicans will just let him work his show.”

Get Away Sandy – God and Obama Will Save Us” read the graffiti, scrawled man-high on a cinderblock wall in the majority Black town of Plainfield, New Jersey. It is an apt articulation of African American politics as we descend into the First Black President’s second term.

Black folks may or may not have a prayer, but they certainly don’t have any earthly influence on the direction of the nation or on a president for whom they gave near-unanimous support, while asking nothing in return.

Wait a minute! I’m hearing echoes of…a familiar voice:

We have learned that Black politicians and activist-poseurs have an infinite capacity to celebrate not having engaged in struggle with Power, and that the Black masses can be made drunk by the prospect of vicariously (through Obama) coming to power.” – Black Agenda Report, “The Obama ’08 Phenomenon: What Have We Learned?” November 4, 2008.

2004 George W. Bush Beats Barack Obama’s 2012 Numbers – “Mandate”?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: They are already working hard to spin these numbers. One “expert” from George Mason University estimates the turnout was 60% of eligible voters. Take a look at the numbers below and tell me how in the hell someone could honestly come to that conclusion…

UPDATE 2: Diane Sawyer was shitfaced during the entire ABC coverage last night. She was hammered and serving as the co-host of ABC’s election night coverage. That gives you a little insight into what a joke this is to these people. At one point it looks like George is about to tell her to get her drunk ass off the anchor desk. It’s pathetic. ABC presented a drunk lush as their face of the election all night long. Fitting really.

UPDATE 3: (H/T David) Glenn Greenwald and I see this kinda differently to say the least:

“So the delirium of liberals this morning is understandable: the night could scarcely have gone better for them.” Glenn Greenwald

UPDATE 4: How nice. Paul Ryan didn’t have to give up his seat in congress for his fake run for office.

National Headlines: “W” BEATS “O”!!!

In an near record setting low turnout rate (which may in fact be a record setting low turnout rate) and with an estimated 18 million more eligible voters, Barack Obama garnered less actual votes than George W. Bush did in 2004 and secured a smaller percentage of the votes than “W” did.

In short, in their re-election bid campaigns, Barack Obama just lost to George W. Bush. Chew on that for a while.

Despite the increase in eligible voters, 14.8 million fewer votes were cast this year than in 2008 and of those the Democrats lost more votes than Republicans at almost a 3 to 1 ratio… and the pundits are talking about an “Obama Mandate”?

These numbers tell us a VERY different story than what the pundits are saying right now.. The fact is, the policies of Obama administration are driving the people of this country AWAY from participation in government, not toward it. They selected Romney to fail and he did everything he could during the campaign to ensure that Obama would remain in office, but the only thing driving masses of voters away from Obama, is Obama’s policies. And that’s a fact. Another fact is those policies are less popular than W’s warmongering and lying to get us into war in 2003. That’s a fact as well.

Barack Obama is going to be the next president of the United States. Romney was hand picked to lose. This is what I have been saying for over a year now. Not surprisingly, the MSM and the super-pundits are claiming the Obama brand of Neo-conservative Liberalism now has a mandate from the people:

“Both sides claim, with some justification, a mandate from the voters.” AP

“President Obama’s reelection represents a victory for the Democratic ideal of activist government and a mandate for more of itAlterNet

“Another close presidential election — accompanied by split control of Congress, with Republicans maintaining control of the House and Democrats holding the Senate — might lead many to the conclusion that President Obama doesn’t have much of a mandate. Quite the contrary; he can have a robust mandate if he chooses to use it.” Baltimore Sun

While the victory may not be that questionable (the republicans are already being derided for choosing horrible candidates Romney and Ryan and running a horrible campaign) the “mandate” certainly is.

Truth be told, in some ways, the Democrats lost this election well, they lost more votes that the Republicans did and in fact more people voted for Bush in 2004 than they did for Obama last night. Let me explain…

Much Ado About Nothing – Obama to Continue His Betrayal

by Scott Creighton

“Life is a tale told by an idiot, all sound and fury, in the end signifying nothing”

UPDATE 3: A little bit of good news… I got one wrong… looks like the emergency managers are done in the state of Michigan. That is definately a pleasant surprise.

UPDATE 2: 6 Billion dollars spent on this election cycle. The country is in horrible shape. More and more people are turning away from the MSM and Washington politics in general. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SAY WE ARE ON THE WRONG PATH… and what happens? The House stays Republican, the Senate stays Democrat, and the White House stays Clinton/Obama… no change.. nothing. Business as usual. Let that sink in for a minute.

Next up: the fake fiscal cliff and genocidal austerity

UPDATE: as I predicted… Even though CNN and NBC News are both not reporting on it, I found a site that has up to the minute results for the various propositions on the California ballots.

Right now Prop 37, Genetically Engineered Food Labeling…

No = 57.7

Yes = 42.3

That’s right folks… apparently the people of California, the most progressive state in the union, the people who pride themselves on rushing out to get any earth saving trendy gimmick, these people don’t want to know what Frankenfood they put in their bodies.  We’re supposed to believe that?

Those numbers are a landslide too. I guess Monsanto “won” a real mandate there.

Also as I predicted, Prop 36 does look like it’s going to pass because though it will keep a few people out of prison for life for committing a non-violent felony as his or her  third strike, it keeps simple drug possession on the “strikes” list ensuring that the prison industrial complex will remain flush full of non-violent drug addicts who have a sickness. So you can still be given life in prison for possession of some coke or pot in California. Huge “victory” for the progressives of the world.
Michigan’s State Proposal B looks like it failed, just as I predicted. That was the one that would have enshrined worker’s rights to collective bargaining so of course that had to fail.

Michigan’s State Proposal A is still “up in the air’ or so they say. That’s the one which would have made the “emergency manager” trick unconstitutional and illegal in the state. Supposedly that one is still too close to call, but I think we all know where this is headed.

So I made 5 predictions on Nov. 3rd and all 5 seem to be holding up: Obama, Prop 37 fail, Prop 36 pass, Michigan Prop A fail, Michigan Prop B fail… of course no one can say anything about rigged e-voting machines because all of our “friends” in the other alternative media outlets were ranting about Romney stealing the election.

Killary’s Syrian “rebels” car bomb Eid al-Adha truce – 5 People are Dead

by Scott Creighton

“No” Killary says, too many people want me to continue as Secretary of State, “so I’m stayin”! 5 dead 47 wounded when a car bomb goes off in Damascus near a playground. Several children included in those numbers. Those are Killary’s Companions lighting the fuses over there don’t ya know?

yes… a nude Killary painting by Sarah Ferguson in New York… it’s real

Killary is enjoying the positive press generated by her turning 65 today even though the father of one of the dead ex-Seals (why do they always have to bring up the fact that they used to be Seals? Would no one give a shit if they were just ex-soldiers or Americans or just people?) killed in Libya during the Benghazi psyop says whomever (wink wink Killary) rejected his son’s plea for assistance before the attack is guilty of murder.

But none of that matters. Killary is a Clinton and the Clinton’s ARE the left.

American Democracy: International Election monitors to be arrested in Texas

(What can you say to this?)

UPDATE: Mike Rivero over at WRH is going on and on about this “U.N.” agency wanting to monitor our elections. It’s NOT a U.S. agency, it’s the OSCE, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe out of Vienna. It has nothing to do with the U.N.  In fact, it’s an organization with 53 participating states with 12 partners for co-operation. The US is a OSCE participating state and in fact, the OSCE has been accused by several states of being biased toward the United States when it comes to declaring an election invalid when the Americans want a different outcome.

“The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization. Its mandate includes issues such as arms control and the promotion of human rights, freedom of the press and fair elections. It has 550 headquarters staff and about 2300 field staff”

This is what Vladimir Putin had to say about the OSCE:

“They [unnamed Western States] are trying to transform the OSCE into a vulgar instrument designed to promote the foreign policy interests of one or a group of countries. And this task is also being accomplished by the OSCE’s bureaucratic apparatus, which is absolutely not connected with the state founders in any way. Decision-making procedures and the involvement of so-called non-governmental organizations are tailored for this task. These organizations are formally independent but they are purposefully financed and therefore under control.” [13][14][15][16][17]

from RT

A handful of international election monitors have touched down in the US to swing by polling places next month when voters cast ballots for the president, but officials in the state of Texas have issued them a warning: you’re not welcome.

State Attorney General Greg Abbott has sent a scathing letter to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, threatening to arrest any of the election auditors that have been dispatched to America to ensure that voters won’t be disenfranchised, discriminated against or intimidated when they take to the polls on November 6.

Since the establishment of the OSCE in the 1970s, the organization has strived to ensure that democratic and lawful elections occur across the planet, routinely examining the political climate before voters take to the polls to make sure ballots can be cast fairly and without complications in numerous countries across Europe and North America. The OSCE was recently extended an invitation to come stateside from several domestic group — including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), among others — because of what those organizations call “an unprecedented and sophisticated level of coordination to restrict voting rights in our nation” due largely in part to a number of newly-enacted laws that limit who and how can cast a ballot.

… In a letter sent this week from Attorney General Abbott, the state’s leading lawyer writes, “The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place,” warning, “It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance.”

“Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law,” Abbott added.

Candidates Yuk it Up with Cardinal Hush Money

by Scott Creighton

MSNBC is asking the important questions about the presidential decision 2012: Who’s funnier?

The president and his “rival’ got together at a lavish Catholic fund raising party (with Cardinal Hush Money, photo at the end of the story) last night taking turns on the stage to who could make more fun of the bullshit they’ve been slopping to the mudpeople over the past 4 months. Oh, there were some funny line written for them too. Take a gander at these why don’t cha?

Big Bird didn’t even see it coming,” Romney

Please take your seats. Otherwise, Clint Eastwood will yell at them,” Obama

In America we enjoy the most democratic process of any other country which is why people like Hillary Clinton can run around condemning Iran for their hacked elections (which were observed and deemed fair and open) and Russia for their crooked elections (which were observed and deemed fair and open) and Venezuela for their rigged elections (which were… well, you get it by now) or at least we like TELLING OURSELVES we enjoy the most democratic election process in the world…

TIME Does Gay Soft Porn Spread of Paul Ryan

by Scott Creighton

Just in case Mitt accidentally picked up a few poll points the last time around, this time, before neoliberal Paul Ryan faces off with neoliberal Joe Biden in a televised WWE VP Smackdown event, TIME decided to make the working class redstaters hate the republican ticket even more with this ridiculous photo montage of Paul Ryan pretending to work out in a photography studio someplace.

Remember in Sept. of 2008 when Sarah Palin went on Saturday Night Live and sat there like an idiot and let them make fun of her on live TV before her Vice Presidential election?

Same thing.

Only difference is, this time they kinda went all “homo-erotic” on the poor die hard republicans. They didn’t go all out, but it’s just odd enough to make most republican working stiffs… well… maybe I shouldn’t have used that term.

Promoting Fascism At the Clinton Global(ist) Initiative: Mitt Romney

by Scott Creighton

I can’t think of a better front man for the soulless Democratic Party than Bill Clinton. He a liar, a womanizer, a sleaze who used his position of authority to stick his willy in a 21 year old intern AND he has made a billion or so dollars promoting his “Global Initiative” of bring fascism lite or “the public/private partnership” to America and the rest of the developing world (yes folks, we are the developing world these days right along with Spain, Greece, Italy, the UK and many others)

And lets not forget he bombed the shit out of Yugoslavia so they could “Balkanize” the nation for various business interests, destroyed Welfare as we knew it, railroaded Brooksley Born when she tried to warn of the unregulated derivatives markets, starved half a million Iraqi children to death simply to weaken the problematic puppet Hussain, and erased the protections of Glass-Steagall which allowed the “too big too fail” banks to cripple the economy and create the necessary environment for his fascist Clinton Global Initiative to thrive.

Personally I can’t think of a better representative of the self-absorbed hypocritical petty bourgeoisie of the left… and the fact that he invited Mitt Vulture Capitalist Romney to headline his little party should give those types a clearer glimpse into the mirror as to what they really are and what they really support (though it’s probably too late to warn the zOmbamies)

Romney’s Kabuki Theatre Performance Pointed Out By Brooks

by Scott Creighton

Mitt Romney Wants YOUR SUPPORT!!!

I’ve been saying for a while that anyone trying to get you to worry about the presidential election (Webster Tarpley) is deliberately distracting you from what is going on now. The election is a sham. There is no real election. Obama’s left cover is serving them well and they will continue it for another 4 years, keeping the “progressives” in check behind the “we have to support his agenda” mask while they bomb Yemen, Syria, Libya (some more to wipe out the Green Resistance), Somalia, and eventually Sudan. The crippling austerity measures will “automatically” fall into place during the lame duck session of congress and the left will curl up into the fetal position rocking themselves to sleep while repeating the mantra “he is playing 3D chess while everyone else plays checkers”

Don’t worry about Romney. As I said before, he was picked to lose just like McCain was before him. They don’t like having to rig elections with their Diebold machines… to much heat after 2000 and 2004… so now they pick the least popular person they can and then set out to make him even more unpopular. That’s the trick these days.

You could fix that easily with a printed receipt and changing the laws they put in place to keep from having to show the software that actually counts the votes, but that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. Oddly enough, listen to Jimmy Carter’s recent comment about another country’s election system…

“Speaking at an annual event last week in Atlanta for his Carter Centre foundation, the politician-turned philanthropist (Jimmy Carter) stated, “As a matter of fact, of the 92 elections that we’ve monitored, I would say the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world.”

Venezuela has developed a fully automated touch-screen voting system, which now uses thumbprint recognition technology and prints off a receipt to confirm voters’ choices.” Global Research
