omifuckinggod. I just listened to 2 hours of the local call-in on The Debt, Obslob, Boehner… and so on.

The peeple are not sheeple. No no no. No, they are DEAD SHEEP.

Others enter the meadow, walking among the dead sheep who are horribly maimed, bloodied and torn at the neck and entrails… and the walkers wonder how they died.

It really is down to that. Just that simple, just that bad.

IANAL but I think that the move on group were followed to one of their homes should allow them all to file inunctions against harassment as well as a ton of litigation that could potentially be quite costly to the tea baggers, but I’d shoot the fuckers before they decided to go All Norse Templar on us.

I’ve never bought into the whole ‘tea bagger stories’ and how crazy the establishment Dems get over them… . Reminds me of Democrats planning elections via Quija boards. More navel gazing by Dems.

Or something like that.

I like how Jones takes pains to elaborate how he is not a Communist…anymore.

Mr. Jones is not a member of any Communist Party or Marxist organization whatsoever, and has not expressed any support for any form of Communist or Marxist ideology for many years. In the same 2005 article in which he Mr. Jones discussed having had such notions as a young man, he also talked about his growth away from those views.

Mr. Jones has repeatedly clarified that his economic views are firmly pro-market, in numerous speeches, televised interviews and in the Huffington Post. In fact, Mr. Jones is known as a leading champion of free-market solutions to current environmental problems. His best-selling book, The Green Collar Economy (2009), advocates government policies to promote private-sector innovation. The World Economic Forum itself has repeatedly honored Mr. Jones’ work. He has been called the “Green” Jack Kemp, because he shares that GOP leader’s commitment to entrepreneurship as a cure for poverty.

After reading Niewert’s hysterics for many years, I think I’ve finally purged myself of sympathy for Democratic operatives who whine when they’ve been ratfucked. Fascism! Oh, please. Pass the popcorn.

And I like the part where they call it “Chicago-style thuggery”. I thought only the GOP lost their sense of irony.

oh I so agree… nor am I fan of Van Jones.

Gah. From what I can tell, he somehow got an intro to Pelosi along about 2006/7 and used it to promote his drool about Green Jobs, and so on. The Dems, with their Quija Board minds, saw easy rhetoric gold for elections.

Green Jobs would save us, they would swear. And they, as Liberal Conjurers could deliver them!

I was very entertained when the Wingers went after him.

As for Niewert….The Dems cling to a single minded demonisation of White Fascism, of which of course we have gobs, as it suits their preferred story line… Supposedly Pro Union, a glorious world of unions that works hard for every color and creed and the Democratic party as the Great Defender of non white and

China fruit seller death sparks riot in Guizhou

Chinese police have quelled a mass riot sparked by rumours that a disabled fruit seller had been beaten to death by local officials.

State media reported that hundreds of people threw stones and clashed with police on the streets of Anshun, in the southern Guizhou province.

The authorities said they would carry out an autopsy on the fruit seller to determine how he died.

Similar rumours sparked days of rioting in Guangdong province in June.

The Guangdong riot snowballed into a wider protest about official corruption and discrimination against migrant workers.

Let us recite the Creed.
America will always Lead. China will always lend.
Capitalism will always prevail.

So. Just what we need –

“Take China to ‘the mat’ “

Matt Taibbi – Corporate Tax Revenues Theft Update

The madness that is the proposed tax repatriation holiday is continuing and gathering steam. More and more members of congress are coming out of the woodwork, scratching their chins in contemplative consideration as it were, pretending that they’ve just realized what a great day a corporate tax holiday would be – not that they’ve taken gazillions of dollars from the firms lobbying for it or anything.

The latest convert seems to be Nevada Democrat Shelley Berkley. Berkley’s plan is to offer a pseudo-holiday – not the full-fledged happy-ending massage the companies wanted (i.e. a reduction from 35 percent+ to 5.25 percent) but a mere ten-point shave:

Representative Shelley Berkley, a Nevada Democrat, is the latest lawmaker to consider legislation allowing multinational companies to send offshore profits to the U.S. at a reduced tax rate.

Her proposal, which was confirmed yesterday by Berkley’s communications director, David Cherry, would allow companies to return profits to the U.S. at a 25 percent tax rate, 10 percentage points below the maximum statutory rate. Most companies publicly supporting a holiday, such as Duke Energy Corp., have spoken favorably of the 5.25 percent rate that is being offered by Representative Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican.

One thing that people must understand about this tax repatriation business is that it’s a wholly bipartisan affair. It’s not solely the work of evil Republicans. This is a scheme that requires heavies in both parties to help ram the knotty, hard-to-sell legislation through. On the Democratic side, unsurprisingly, the main actor is going to be Chuck Schumer. John Kerry is also involved with this nastiness. Barbara Boxer led the 2004 effort and the failed 2009 campaign to get a holiday, and is rumored to be lurking somewhere in this business.

Note that Cisco, a California corporate heavyweight and one of the companies lobbying most ravenously for this tax holiday, has been a consistent lifelong contributor to Boxer. You’ll find Cicso is also a contributor to most of the other congressional allies in the repatriation holiday effort, as are companies like Motorola, Merck , Pfizer, Proctor and Gamble, Ford, and others.

Of course “we” are:

I’m still shocked at the lack of press coverage of this. In all this scratching and clawing over dimes here and there, and clamoring for trillions in cuts, we’re seriously considering what amounts to a gigantic new systematic loophole for corporate taxes?

(bolding mine. Too bad Matt didn’t give even a passing mention to oBombster and Timmy the Gman, cuz I’m sure they’re right on top of this, helping lead the way, for 99.999% of Congress ….)

Duke Energy will be a favored recipient of anything pushed for a few years. MAJOR underwriter, to a breathless degree, of the Dem convention coming up in NC….

Gah. Spittle Choke Turn Blue. Etc.

diane - 27 July 2011

Yeah, gah spittle choke …, ..an’ speaking of butter jobs,…Glenn’s got a piece up, about the MSNBC Shack Bully, Butter Job:

On Sunday, Cenk Uygur was interviewed by CNN’s Howard Kurtz about Uygur’s departure from MSNBC, and Ugyur claimed that Al Sharpton — widely reported to be his replacement — vowed in a 60 Minutes interview never to criticize President Obama under any circumstances. When I first heard Ugyur make this claim, I assumed it was hyperbole — until I watched the video and read the transcript of the Sharpton interview. The 60 Minutes segment was aired on May 19, 2011, and chronicles what it calls Sharpton’s “metamorphosis: today he’s down right tame. So much so, that he has made his way into the establishment.” It includes this:

Sharpton told us that having a black president is a challenge: if he finds fault with Mr. Obama, he’d be aiding those who want to destroy him. So he has decided not to criticize the president about anything – even about black unemployment, which is twice the national rate.

(bolding mine.)

marisacat - 27 July 2011

Ismael Reed has said the same thing. As long as racists seek to oppose Obama he will not criticise him nor oppose him.

Just appalling.

Sharpton just wants a paychekc. he publicly politicked for a DNC paycheck in the 2004 election. Kerry GE signed him up that ver week… then he started to be everywhere, esp on cable, clearly, to me, under the auspices of the Dem party. And it never let up.

Shitters all. Guttersnipes and fellow travellers. Enablers and war mongers. All ofthem.

I would NEVER nto criticise woman of any color, most particularly a political entity, but actually anyone, jsut becuase she is a woman..

So done.

diane - 27 July 2011

Yup, mostly thugs, …. and I’m gonna get mine ….fuck everyone else …. …survivalists ………runnin the show, ….. and 99.9999% thugs being handed out ….. the few remaining jobs there are. I’m quite sure the unemployment rate in the Prisons, is zero. …That is not at all to say ….. that there aren’t those in prison and employed: ….who should not be in prison; …and, who should have never lost their employment…in the first place.

Madman in the Marketplace - 27 July 2011

to make it worse from an ENTERTAINMENT basis, Sharpton is a HORRIBLE interviewer.

I’d rather watch O’Reilly.

marisacat - 27 July 2011

He’s awful… and his funding by Republican Roger Stone in 2003/4 was well documented in NY media and press. Goal accomplished. Stone wanted Sharpton to be giving an address from the podium at the DNC in prime time. And he did.

Only he and Jimmie, who is after all a former pretzel, refused to have their speeches vetted.

i was disgusted.

Madman sent me this… I haven’t had a chance yeet to get ot the article ot read it… just the snippet he sent:

Air Force Cites New Testament . . . .

The mandatory Nuclear Ethics and Nuclear Warfare session, which includes a discussion on St. Augustine’s “Christian Just War Theory,” is led by Air Force chaplains and takes place during a missile officer’s first week in training at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The Christian Just War Theory has been touted by Rep. Ron Paul, a 2012 presidential candidate, during campaign stops.

St. Augustine’s “Qualifications for Just War,” according to the way it is cited in a 43-page PowerPoint presentation, are: “to avenge or to avert evil; to protect the innocent and restore moral social order (just cause)” and “to restore moral order; not expand power, not for pride or revenge (just intent).”

diane - 27 July 2011

led by Air Force chaplains and takes place during a missile officer’s first week in training at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

jeeeesh, it fucking figures there’s a dotted connection to Cali, ..and Texas (Ron Paul, ….uggh Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania too then) ….

marisacat - 27 July 2011

People decline to see, much less talk about, how fundamentalist Cali has gone over recent decades. Of all colors, countries of origin too. All over the place. Locals, Immigrants, fundie wings of old line religions, all colors, Russian immigrant right wing xtian fundies, we have Chabad Lubavitcher houses here in Cali, in fact one in SF in FUCKING NORTH BEACH.

All kinds of lunatics.

And they ALL found each other over the Prop 8 mess. What a shame. I watched it happen.

diane - 27 July 2011

Oh, I don’t know, …I tend to think the creeps, have been around all along, including those on the the other side of the prop 8 mess, …..like Peter Theil …..I will never forget a young gay Filippino male in Macy’s who fucking stunned me by stating …but we need to be protected …..when I trashed George W Bush ….it really fuckin creeped me out.

marisacat - 27 July 2011

Oh no there are many many more. Of course there has always been whacko religios in Cali, esp in So Cal (Aimee Semple, that one alone) Always been old line Catholic strongholds, via the parochial schools if nothing else.

HOWEVER it has been changing for at least a couple of decades.

Think of Russian immigration ALONE. they tried to mount a right wing absolutist xtian coup at a Cal State campus last year, up on the Sierra Foothils, think it is referred to as ‘Evergreen”, a lot of adult “returning” students and so on… the Russians were anti gay, anti women… they tried to take over the Student Council, there was a very tense election on campus.

The Russian enclaves all thru Norther Cal, immigrant etc are much much larger than they ever were. I got my eyes opened a lot when my mother was at Mt Zion for a month in 97. I WAS HORRIFIED. I did not know it was known as the “Medi-Cal hospital”, that UCSF shuttle those patients to… and one reality was a lot of non English speaking immigrant Russians… and they had nurses and doctors on staff, Russian extraction, to deal with it… (My mother was not on Medi-Cal. Her doctor was attached to Mt Zion and UCSF and UCSF is TERRIBLE… at first I was glad to have a choice).

The rise in fundamental extreme religions is not limited to Cali. The emergence of hard line evangelical wings of what used to be more limited games (Catholics for one, but wings of Lutherism, other Protestant religions as well).

There are enclaves of hard line Asian immigration that are what I call “Mission convert” Asians. Utter lunatics. Whack job Catholic AND various evangelical Filipinos, many more than there were 3 decades ago.

On and on it goes.

Not to even start on muslims.

diane - 27 July 2011

Oops, you forget Ananda(I know …too fuckin many in Cali, ….to recollect at one time…), in Shallow Alto/Mountain View area, last I looked, they run/(ran) East West ….book store, and Book Buyers(across the street from East West …(which used to be in Menlo Park, and Book Buyers, used to be on University Avenue, in Shallow [Palo] Alto.)), …both, are on Castro Street in Mountain View, ….. apparent contenders with the Scientology “church,” on Easy Street, Mountain View (just a short, snip snappety stub of a “throughway” to intrastates 85/101, off of Central Expressway, (which is in between, and paralell to, …highway 101, and El Camino Real) between Whisman (north of Mary) and Castro Streets. Anywho, …Ananda, bought a huge, previously Catholic “church,” with a huge bas relief of William The Conquerer above its ‘front door,’ on El Camino Real, in Shallow, Palo Alto. ….jeeesh…I feel like a gossip columnist ……….., except that, outside of the spelling and “html” errors, it was firsthand experience, watching those entities preside at those addresses, and asking bleakly amused questions.

But seriously, I think they are all the practised “religions” …and, the practised “non- religions” …, ….of: …. I, …Me, …My, ….Mine, ….. ……………., which the Mic/Corp/Guv, makes such short, certainly $$$$$$$profitable$$$$$$$$$, ….. work of………………….

marisacat - 27 July 2011

I am not familiar with Ananda… will look it up.

I barely know Palo Alto much less Mountain View anymore. I remember MV from when it was E M P T Y. Rolling hills.

marisacat - 27 July 2011

Looked it up… seems like one more Cali quasi fakery religio swami meditation (Come and do Yoga With US!) cult. Not enough scandal yet to catch up to it.

But it may.

ts - 27 July 2011

Will agree with you there. Have been going to the local evangelical Taiwanese church, largely because the people are nice individually, daycare for our two kids and the free lunch. The sermons are all fire and brimstone – Old Testament type stuff, with a thinly veiled reference to our current times, a reading from Genesis, destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah(1), followed by a prayer to be free of the same decadence in “daily lives”, as if there are homosexuals running amok dragging people out of their homes to rape, like in the story. Kind of unnerving coming from people you talk to later and seem otherwise normal.

(I kind of chuckle at this passage, because if you read a chapter after that, Lot’s daughters, realizing their family line may die out as they’re living in a cave and their mom is saline, contrive a plan to get their dad blind drunk and get impregnated by him. They succeed And thats okay then.)

marisacat - 27 July 2011

I agree… the disconnect with some of them, across all colors, country of origin and inside the range of religions, is extreme.

Madman in the Marketplace - 27 July 2011

The sheer cognitive dissonance of that presentation is amazing … any honest theologian (oh wait, no such thing) would just be appalled at shit like this:

One of the ethical questions contained in the PowerPoint presented to missile officers asks: “Can you imagine a set of circumstances that would warrant a nuclear launch from the US, knowing that it would kill thousands of non-combatants?

Another question trainees are confronted with asks: “Can we train physically, emotionally and spiritually for a job we hope we never have to do?”

To help officers answer these ethical queries, the PowerPoint presentation cites numerous examples of characters from the New and Old Testament fighting “just” wars. For example, “Abraham organized an army to rescue Lot,” God motivated “judges (Samson, Deborah, Barak) to fight and deliver Israel from foreign oppressors,” and “David is a warrior who is also a ‘man after God’s own heart.'”

Also included in the PowerPoint presentation is a slide containing a passage from the Book of Revelation that attempts to explain how Jesus Christ, as the “mighty warrior,” believed war to be “just.”

It’s right there in the Sermon on the Mount, right after being your neighbors’ keeper.

This part is right, though:

It goes on to say that there are “many examples of believers [who] engaged in wars in Old Testament” in a “righteous way” and notes there is “no pacifistic sentiment in mainstream Jewish history.”

diane - 27 July 2011

The sheer cognitive dissonance of that presentation is amazing … any honest theologian (oh wait, no such thing) would just be appalled at shit like this:

“….”

It’s right there in the Sermon on the Mount, right after being your neighbors’ keeper. ….

Yup, they would/should be appalled. The Beatitudes ….…Matthew, Chapter Five … ( the beginning, of the The Sermon on the Mount, …one, partial translation follows, …which so very many, many poor people (even many, many middleclass, and even a surprising few “wealthy” people),…. took to heart, in whatever way they felt they were able to, and still “survive.”

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you….”

…so, it was all just a clever game $$$$$$$MIC/CORP/DC$$$$$$$$? …

Clearly: the poor in spirit; ….the mourners; … the meek; …..the thirsting for righteousness; ….the merciful; ….the pure of heart; …. the peacemakers; …the persecuted for righteousness’ sake, ……are the ones which the $$$$$$$MIC/CORP/DC$$$$$$$$, is mowing over, …..quite deliberately, ….. it would seem.

Well, it’s pretty clear that the ten commandments are for and about only the chosen people. You can kill anyone you want, just not in your tribe. You can covet your neighbor’s wife, send him off to war to be killed, and then have her for yourself, and you’re good enough to be King.

Snicker snax…full text via Politico “44”

White House reporters were left in the dark on Wednesday as they tried to find out what President Obama has been up to today.

As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker John Boehner wrangle over their debt ceiling plans, Obama has been holed up inside the White House with no public appearances scheduled and nothing even listed on his daily agenda released to reporters.

Asked Wednesday afternoon what Obama’s been doing all day, press secretary Jay Carney whispered, “I can’t tell you.”

“He’s been in a lot of meetings. A lot of phone calls,” Carney said. “You know, beyond that, I don’t know what we have on the public schedule.”

A reporter followed up by asking if Obama might talk to reporters. “He could be out here in an hour,” Carney mused, but then quickly said that nothing’s scheduled.

Carney also refused to tell reporters when Obama last spoke with Boehner. “We’re not reading out individual conversations, so I’m not going to do that now,” he said. . . . .

Noooooooooooooooo transparency there!

none. nun… nononononono none.

One can hope… ;)

[A] congressional report released yesterday reveals that top DOJ officials had knowledge of the sting, known as Operation Fast and Furious, in which U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) agents allowed more than 2,000 firearms to “walk” across the U.S. border to Mexico and into the hands of Mexico’s brutal drug cartels. As many as 1,700 of those weapons have since been lost. More than 100 have been linked to crimes on both sides of the border, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent last December.

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), who are leading the congressional investigation into the operation, have made it clear that the attorney general — a confidant of President Barack Obama — is a central focus of their probe.

So far, the DOJ has stonewalled the Issa/Grassley probe. But recent testimony from the embattled ATF director made the astounding claim that the cartel leaders targeted by Fast and Furious were allegedly paid informants for the Drug Enforcement Administration and the FBI. …

Anytime they want to take down a long time third rate government functionary (that would be Holder) is fine with me…

In his secret July 4 testimony, Melson, accompanied by a private lawyer, told Congressional investigators that DOJ officials had told him to keep quiet, and asked him not to cooperate with the House probe. He added that the department seemed primarily concerned with protecting senior political appointees.
