9.12 Tea Party 2009; Radical Extremist Domestic Terrorists (...according to the left)
The Beckster covers the definition of what actually makes up a ‘radical’ and an ‘extremist’. Once again he is asking America to make a choice; meanwhile Obama’s team is currently trying to figure out how to ‘alter the course of the midterm elections’ for the democrats. Yes, those very same democrats that decided to go down with the ship by backing Chairman Zero’s globalist wealth redistribution agenda. Little problem though; they did not realize just how awake the moos had gotten when they started skipping down the ‘everyone join hands in mediocrity‘ garden path. While losing jobs, homes, 401Ks, and not being able to feed and clothe their children, the American Herd is looking for the culprits and they are not taking ‘the spin’ to heart this time around. Democrats are screwed as Americans really wake up and learn the history that has been kept from them.
(This writer now believes that Beck has definitely figured out that global progressives are wrecking America, but I’m still waiting patiently for him to catch up to the entire United Nations agenda to collapse America. I’m not holding my breath, and yes, I’m going to keep hammering Beck until he tells the entire story.)
Glenn starts out this broadcast with the Missouri vote to reject Obamacare, and flows into the sameness of the two major parties; Progressives on Steroids (D) and Progressives Lite (R). Glenn also dances around the luciferians which leads me to believe that he may actually be starting to understand the scope of the problem and the many different agendas involved. If you have not read Carroll Quigley’s ‘Tragedy and Hope’ yet, here’s a quote that may get you more involved and also explains why libertarians are not loons on the fringe. Who actually is the loon when both parties are taking your money and just spending it differently?
The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies…is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other, which will be none of these things, but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same policies.
How can the Obama Regime (possibly) put forward lies about who attacked whom near the Gaza Strip, and how can the NY Times print such lies and not be sued by the Israeli Government?
“The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla…”
Did officials inside the Obama Regime actually say this or is the NY Times making sh** up again?
Watch the video and decide for yourself who was being attacked. (I am so sick of these criminals; i.e. the White House and Sestak, Romanoff, Blagovich, and the Times’ bashing of Palin). Gateway Pundit has the story of this video broken down.
Back to the Lame Stream Media in all it’s ‘burning to ashes’ glory. Let’s all just assume that this is a true story.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration considers Israel’s blockade of Gaza to be untenable and plans to press for another approach to ensure Israel’s security while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area, senior American officials said Wednesday.
Another approach? Like the one Israel just tried with bringing in humanitarian aid and Hamas stopped? Like Obama really gives a hoot about what happens to Israel, AND HAS ANY SAY IN IT! This guy has such delusions of grandeur, it ain’t funny. Has anybody told this guy yet that he will not be going down in history for anything positive and of substance? Don’t nobody mention Obamacare…
The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla trying to break the siege and the resulting international condemnation create a new opportunity to push for increased engagement with the Palestinian Authority and a less harsh policy toward Gaza.
Everybody should know that Israel was put in a ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ political situation. Even Egypt tried to stop this flotilla because they happen to have ring-side seats and know what’s going on.
“There is no question that we need a new approach to Gaza,” said one official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy shift is still in the early stages. He was reflecting a broadly held view in the upper reaches of the administration.
“They need a new approach”? How about kicking the terrorists out of Gaza so normal people can get on with their lives on both sides? How ’bout that?
I wish these appendages of the Obama Administration would actually poll the Tea Party Patriots. After reading this article, would you like to venture a guess as to who actually was being polled, if anybody? Don’t miss the intrinsic racist nature of some of the comments. Emphasis from this point on is definitely mine and is meant to point out the half truths and misinformation being disseminated to the general public.
Tea party supporters are wealthier and more well-educated than the general public, tend to be Republican, white, male, and married, and their strong opposition to the Obama administration is more rooted in political ideology than anxiety about their personal economic situation, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll. (The Tea Party IS THE GENERAL PUBLIC)
The 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters look like Republicans in many ways, but they hold more conservative views on a range of issues and tend to be older than Republicans generally. They are also more likely than Republicans as a whole to describe themselves as “very conservative” and President Obama as “very liberal.”
And while most Republicans say they are “dissatisfied” with Washington, Tea Party supporters are more likely to classify themselves as “angry.”
Speculation and anecdotal evidence have often taken the place of concrete data about who supports the Tea Party movement, and the poll offers some surprising findings.
In some ways, Tea Party supporters look like the general public. For instance, despite their allusions to Revolutionary War-era tax protesters, most describe the amount they paid in taxes this year as “fair.” Most send their children to public schools, do not think Sarah Palin is qualified to be president, and, despite their push for smaller government, think that Social Security and Medicare are worth the cost. They are actually more likely than the general public to have returned their census forms, despite some conservative leaders urging a boycott.
Their fierce animosity toward Washington, and the president in particular, is rooted in deep pessimism about the direction of the country and the conviction that the policies of the Obama administration are disproportionately directed at helping the poor rather than the middle class or the rich.
The overwhelming majority of Tea Party supporters say Mr. Obama does not share the values most Americans live by, and that he does not understand the problems of people like themselves. More than half say the policies of the administration favor the poor, and 25 percent, compared with 11 percent of the general public, think that the administration favors blacks over whites. They are more likely than the general public, and Republicans, to say that too much has been made of the problems facing black people.
Asked what they are angry about, Tea Party supporters offered three main concerns: the recent health care overhaul, government spending, and a feeling that their opinions are not represented in Washington.
“The only way they will stop the spending is to have a revolt on their hands,” Elwin Thrasher, a 66-year-old semi-retired lawyer in Florida, said in an interview following the poll. “I’m sick and tired of them wasting money and doing what our founders never intended to be done with the federal government.”
They are far more pessimistic than Americans in general about the economy improving. More than 90 percent of Tea Party supporters think the country is headed in the wrong direction, compared with about 60 percent of the general public. About 6 in 10 say America’s best days are behind us when it comes to the availability of good jobs for American workers.
Nearly 9 in 10 disapprove of the job Mr. Obama is doing overall, and about the same percentage fault his handling on the specifics, too: health care, the economy, and the federal budget deficit. More than 8 in 10 hold an unfavorable view of him personally, and 92 percent believe he is moving the country toward socialism – an opinion shared by about half the general public. Tea Party supporters are also more likely than most Americans to believe, mistakenly, that the president has increased taxes for most Americans.
How can the NY Times continue the lie of no new taxes? AYFKM? Are the Swedes paying these new taxes?
Washington residents will begin payingObamaCare taxes this year, while most benefits don’t start until 2014. The law includes some 19 new taxes. Here’s a rundown of what Washingtonians can expect in the coming years.
Tax on Home Sales. Imposes a 3.8 percent tax on home sales and other real estate transactions. Middle-income people must pay the full tax even if they are “rich” for only one day – the day they sell their house and buy a new one.
“I just feel he’s getting away from what America is,” said Kathy Mayhugh, 67, a retired medical transcriber in Jacksonville. “He’s a socialist. And to tell you the truth I think he’s a Muslim and trying to head us in that direction, I don’t care what he says. He’s been in office over a year and can’t find a church to go to. That doesn’t say much for him.”
Definitely have to add that! Notice they completely skirt the birth certificate issue?
The nationwide telephone poll was conducted April 5-12 with 1,580 adults. For the purposes of analysis, Tea Party supporters were oversampled, for a total of 881, and then weighted back to their proper proportion in the poll. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points for both all adults and Tea Party supporters.
The Tea Party supporters are more likely than the general public to say their personal financial situation is good or very good. But like the general public, 55 percent are concerned that someone in their household will be out of a job in the next year. And more than two-thirds say the recession has been difficult or caused hardship and major life changes. Like most Americans, they think the most pressing problem facing the country today are the economy and jobs.
But while most Americans blame the Bush administration or Wall Street for the current state of the American economy, the greatest number of Tea Party supporters blamed Congress.
Still, while they overwhelmingly disapprove of Congress, 4 in 10 Tea Party supporters, like most Americans, approve of the job their own representative is doing.
Yessiree! I am so happy with Mazie Hirono, Neil Abercrombie, Daniel Akaka and Daniel Inouye that I just want to support Charles Djou and John Willoughby for sh*ts and giggles. Once again, AYFKM?
They do not want a third party, and say they usually or almost always vote Republican. The percentage holding a favorable opinion of former president George W. Bush — at 57 percent — almost exactly matches the percentage in the general public that holds an unfavorable view.
Dee Close, a 47-year-old homemaker in Memphis, said she was worried about a “drift” in the country. “Over the last 3 or 4 years I’ve realized how immense that drift has been away from what made this country great,” she said. “I’m angry because I feel that those who are elected hijack the country once they are elected to positions of power.”
She blamed Americans for being apathetic. “Most people are not even aware of how gullible they are,” she said. “They’re not educated enough to know what’s going on.”
Yet while the Tea Party supporters are more conservative than Republicans on social issues, they do not want to focus on those issues: about 8 in 10 say that they are more concerned with economic issues.
When talking about the Tea Party movement, the largest number of respondents said that the goal should be reducing the size of government, more than cutting the budget deficit, or lowering taxes.
And nearly three quarters said they would prefer smaller government even if it means spending on domestic programs would be cut.
But in follow up interviews, people said did not want to cut Medicare or Social Security — the biggest domestic programs – suggesting instead a focus on “waste.”
“I do believe we are responsible for the widow and the orphan,” said Richard Gilbert, a 72 year old retired teacher. “But I think there is a welfare class that lives for having children and receiving payment from the government for having those children. They have no incentive to do any better because they have been conditioned into it.”
Others defended being on Social Security while fighting big government by saying they had paid into the system, so deserved the benefits.
Others could not explain the contradiction.
“I guess I want smaller government and my Social Security,” said Jodine White, 62, of Rocklin, Calif. “I didn’t look at it from the perspective of losing things I need. I think I’ve changed my mind.” (because I’m not really a Tea Party Patriot)
