Tag: Sharron Angle

Why am I smelling something rotten here? UPDATED!!

There is something that just does not set right with me about this story. It seems a bit too tidy and perfect for leftist talking points.

One of the wounded in the Tucson, Ariz., shooting that left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically injured is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.

“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all — even 9-year-old girls,” he added, referring to the death of Christina Taylor Green.

Fuller, a 63-year-old veteran, had campaigned for Giffords during her reelection and was at the supermarket for her Congress on Your Corner event.

“I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials,” Fuller said in an interview with Media Matters. “That map I saw that she published on the Internet had crosshairs on it and one of them was meant for Gabrielle Giffords.”

Yes, there it is, part of it anyway. Democracy Now, is a Left wing group that has about as much credibility as, well your standard Neo-Marxist group has, which is none. There is something else that REALLY does not sound right though. Earlier this week, this same man pointed not one finger, but called the shooter a madman.

Earlier this week, in an interview with CBS News, Fuller didn’t go as far as to point fingers. Instead, he called the accused shooter, Jared Loughner, a “madman.”

So, why did his tune so drastically change? You might expect the more emotional response to come sooner, rather than later. So, with absolutely nothing leading any reasonable person to connect anyone on the Right to this, why did he change his view? And look, if there is a more “perfect” guy for the Leftists to get to accuse Palin of being complicit I cannot imagine who that might be. This guy is veteran, and was wounded, so he has not one but two absolute moral authority cards to play doesn’t he?

He seems to be a true believer in far Left theology I would say, consider this from the NY Times

Mr. Fuller, the limousine driver, also supported Ms. Giffords but he went to see her for different reasons.

He became interested in politics only recently, and fell hard for liberal causes. He sends e-mail blasts denouncing “Replundercans.”

On Saturday, he stopped by Ms. Giffords’s event after his weekly tennis game expecting to see protesters, whom he had seen at previous Giffords events.

“I wanted to give her a boost and to protect her from the Tea Party crime syndicate and to shout them down,” he said. “I can make a lot of noise.”

There were no protesters, but he got into a heated argument with another person waiting to meet Ms. Giffords. An aide to Ms. Giffords, Gabriel Zimmerman, quickly stepped in to break them up. Mr. Zimmerman was killed in the shootings.

Well he seems to have a record as a far Leftist as his page at Hypnothoughts indicates

Mean “Ol Meany has some thoughts and found this screen cap of Fuller railing against Glenn Beck in March

UPDATED! It seems that Mr. Fuller may indeed have issues with anger, odd how that is a fairly common trait among the “tolerant Left”

That’s where the atmosphere turned tense.   When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated.  Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, “You’re dead.”

When State Rep. Terri Proud (R-Tucson) rose to explain and clarify current and proposed gun legislation in the state, several people groaned or booed her.  One of those booing, according to several witnesses, was Fuller.   Witnesses sitting near Fuller told KGUN9 News that Fuller was making them feel very uncomfortable.

The event wrapped up a short time later.  Deputies then escorted Fuller from the room.  As he was being led off, Fuller shouted loudly to the room at large.  Several witnesses said that what they thought they heard him shout was, “You’re all whores!”

Fuller, age 63, is a political operative who specializes in gathering petitions for ballot initiatives.   Before the program began, he passed out business cards to people sitting around him that read:
“Signatures

Political Circulator? More like Political Agitator! Look for MSNBS to try and make this guy into a hero.

Liberal Alan Colmes is a perfect illustration of the absolute intellectual bankruptcy of Liberals!

Via News Busters! If Alan Colmes, the winner of today’s Marxist Moron Award, ever wonders why no one takers him, or any other Liberal talking head seriously, he should just refer him self to this exchange! Check out how Colmes just keeps repeating the same old accusations of racism against the Tea party. Pathetic!

Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Saturday, January 1, Fox News Watch:

JON SCOTT: Alan, I’m going to guess that you think the media coverage of the elections was pretty fair.

ALAN COLMES: I think they were pretty fair. I mean, are you going to say they’re not? Is that the meme of this show? To knock the media for that?

SCOTT: For instance, the Tea Party. Tea Party always got favorable coverage, right? Or fair coverage?

COLMES: Oh, they got, look, the Tea Party was a bunch of angry white guys who went around and put up racist signs at these-

JUDY MILLER: Angry white guys?

COLMES: -at these events on lawn chairs who had nothing better to do on weekends than sit on lawn chairs with signs suggesting Obama was a Muslim who wasn’t born in this country.

JIM PINKERTON: Give Alan credit for summarizing the mainstream media-

COLMES: Oh, the mainstream media, the evil mainstream media.

PINKERTON: Alan just did it.

CAL THOMAS: We’ve seen this media blindness before. We saw it in 1979, 1980 when Bill Moyers came on PBS wondering where all these church-going, flag-waving, patriotic people came from. They didn’t know because they don’t hang out on Sunday mornings or in other places where these conservatives go. We saw the same thing with the Tea Party movement. The media are always shocked, shocked to see these people turn up at the polls and actually do something.

COLMES: How many blacks did they elect? How many blacks are in the Republican Party? How many Hispanics did they elect?

PINKERTON: The Tea Partiers elected two – Allen West and Tim Scott, Florida and South Carolina.

THOMAS: You’re just a counter, that’s all.

COLMES: I’m a counter?

THOMAS: Yeah, you’re a counter

COLMES: No, I’m actually a chair. What do you mean, I’m a counter.

THOMAS: Well, you know, you go by numbers that if you don’t have the exact balance.

COLMES: I’m simply saying, you’re going to tell me, wait a minute, you believe the Tea Party is not basically a white male movement? You don’t think that?

THOMAS: Not all male, no. Look at the women who were elected. Look at the ones who were-

PINKERTON: Tell that to Nikki Haley-

THOMAS: Exactly what I’m saying.

PINKERTON: -Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell.

COLMES: But I’m saying, look at these rallies, you look who’s there, and you look at what the profile is.

MILLER: I saw an awful lot of women.

COLMES: I mean, the Republicans needed to get a black guy to head the RNC in order to make it look fair and balanced.

PINKERTON: The Republicans hired a black guy to prove they weren’t racist?

COLMES: Yeah, right. Look, let’s bear one thing in mind. This country is ethnically 70 percent white. Okay, in any given random group of people-

COLMES: Not for long.

PINKERTON: Well, okay, right now, three-fourths of the people in a crowd will be white. And if that offends you, too bad.

COLMES: No, but it’s more than three fourths people at the – it doesn’t offend me, Jim – but more than three-fourths of the people at these events were white and male.

PINKERTON: It does seem to offend, it does seem to offend you. You call them racist.

MILLER: They were not male.

COLMES: Of course they were.

MILLER: There were many, many women. There were mama grizzles, as Sarah Palin called them.

COLMES: I’m sure there were a few mama grizzlies there.

MILLER: There were many mama grizzlies.

PINKERTON: The best example was the guy at some Tea Party rally, and they showed a picture – he was carrying a gun – and MSNBC ran the picture of him saying here’s a Tea Partier with a gun, and then somebody else found out the picture was actually an African-American guy

The new and improved Race Card, now with no race baiting limit!

Race baiting is big business in America, and for the Left, business has been good for years now. Donald Douglas has the latest example of race baiting to win a political fight. In this case it is over illegal immigration. And, as usual, the Left accuses their opponents of activities they themselves practice!

Which clip will the MFM show? The one on top, where Professor Kent Wong, Director of UCLA’s Center for Labor Research and Education, lauds immigrant students for working hard toward their dream of education and opportunity in America, or the one at bottom, where he excoriates the racist “old white men” in the U.S. Senate, to wild cheers from the crowd. And note at the second clip all this talk about “displacing millions of Americans … in their jobs, seats in college, and elections.” That’s a classic summary statement on the neo-communist left’s reconquista revolutionary agenda:

“We will win the dream act soon — very soon,” he exclaimed. “When that day comes, we will celebrate with millions and millions of people of people across this country who are standing with you tonight. Who stand for justice, who stand for democracy and equal opportunities for all.”

“When that day happens, the young people of the DREAM Act movement, will go on to accomplish and do great things with your lives,” he said. “You will go on to become lawyers, teachers, doctors and members of the US congress to replace those old white men… You are the hope and future of this country. You are hope and future of your generation.”

If Dream Act Amnesty passes, millions of Americans will be DISPLACED and REPLACED in their jobs, seats in college, and elections.

Here are the two videos Douglas referenced, I got sick watching this prick, doing his damnedest to sell out American sovereignty. First we see, and hear the playing of the Race Card

Now listen to who the REAL racists are!

Do these fools ever seriously consider that perhaps they should try to take the example of America and try to change THEIR NATIONS? Instead they break in to our nation, and demand hand outs? If they wish to come here LEGALLY, then God bless them! But I am fed up with these miscreants who want to tear down American sovereignty.

Hollywood has Lindsay Lohan, the GOP has Lindsey Graham

Lindsey Graham, Republican Senator from South Carolina, continues to illustrate why he is nothing but a bimbo, and should not be taken seriously, ever!

So Senator Lindsey Graham is now trying to educate the Tea Party that their choices in candidates are not up to par with what he considers appropriate choices.

“The House had a dramatic election. We picked up seats in the Senate. Some of us thought, maybe we could pick up two or three more, but we made some pretty poor choices when it came to candidates.”

C-Span has the video.

Oh of course, those darned Tea Party people screwed up the eletions for the GOP! I suppose they should have listened to the likes of Sen. Graham? I  mean, it certainly was not the shenanigans of lily livered RIBNOs like Graham that hurt the GOP in 2006 and 2008 was it?

How desperate is Harry Reid?

Well, he has now accused Sharron Angle of being against the freeing of the slaves

HARRY REID: “She wants to abolish social security, get rid of Medicare, she believes it’s unconstitutional, do away with the Department of Education, Department of Energy. She thinks that all Presidential proclamations — executive orders are unconstitutional – like the Emancipation Proclamation.”

I think we can now agree that Reid’s political future is”shovel ready”!

U.S. Cities Face Half A Trillion Dollars In Pension Deficits – CNBC

Big U.S. cities could be squeezed by unfunded public pensions as they and counties face a $574 billion funding gap, a study to be released on Tuesday shows.

The gap at the municipal level would be in addition to $3 trillion in unfunded liabilities already estimated for state-run pensions, according to research from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and the University of Rochester.

“What is yet to be seen is how this burden will be distributed between state and local governments and whether the federal government will be called upon for bail-outs,” said Joshua Rauh of the Kellogg School.

The financial demands of unfunded pension promises come as state and local governments grapple with years of falling tax revenue related to the recession.

The combination has raised concern that defaults, which are historically rare in the $2.8 trillion municipal bond market where local governments obtain money, could now rise.

“The bondholders would be competing with the pension beneficiaries for scarce government resources,” Mr. Rauh said.

Current pension assets for plans sponsored by Philadelphia can only pay for promised benefits through 2015, while Boston and Chicago would deplete their existing funds by 2019.

Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Florida and St Paul have current pension assets that can only pay for promised benefits through 2020.

Local governments use unique accounting methods that many, such as Mr Rauh, believe understate obligations. Based on his estimates, which use U.S. Treasuries as the benchmark, each household already owes an average of $14,165 to current and former municipal public employees in the 50 cities and counties studied.

“Philadelphia has the most immediate cause for concern, as the city can pay existing promises with existing assets only through 2015,” Mr. Rauh said, assuming an 8 percent annualized return, the most common benchmark for municipal plans.

In New York City, San Francisco and Boston the total is more than $30,000 a household and, in Chicago, it tops $40,000.

Taxpayers in these areas risk not only local tax increases and service cuts to pay for benefits, but potentially some of the bill for the $3 trillion unfunded obligations at the state level, the researchers say.

“The fact that there is such a large burden of public employee pensions concentrated in urban metropolitan areas threatens the long-run economic viability of these cities, as residents can potentially move elsewhere to escape the situation,” Mr. Rauh said.

The research examines 77 pension plans sponsored by 50 major cities and counties and covering about 2 million workers, which is estimated to be two-thirds of workers covered by local pensions. Researchers then extrapolated the results – an unfunded liability of about $5,300 per worker – to come up with the total estimate of $574 billion.
