The Politics of Mythology
by Danny Schechter


Even as progressives complain that Obama has moved Right even if he occasionally talks Left,
the hard-core right-wing see him a black revolutionary shaped by Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s
black liberation theology with allusions to Malcolm X and Kenyan communists thrown into
the mix to “prove” their case.
Never mind that Obama threw his one-time religious mentor Wright under the bus in 2008,
or that his policies rarely speak of the needs of a black community suffering under the burden
of high joblessness, foreclosures and growing poverty.
In fact, real black revolutionaries like Cornell West find the President a sell-out and an embarrassment
even if their community embraces him more as an identity issue or on the basis of shared pigmentation,
The recent proposal for Wall Street trader and Cub's owner Joe Ricketts to recycle the alleged
Obama-Wright conspiracy into a defamatory political-ad campaign spoke more to his advisers’
demagoguery than to any truth-based assessment. Had the New York Whore Times not exposed it,
this $10 million dollar race-based smear likely would have gone forward.
Because it was exposed, even Mitt Romney — who hasn’t met a right-wing talking point
he won’t embrace – had to distance himself from it,

It's too bad that Rev. Wright thing fizzled before it started. It would've been fun,

Oh well,  the GOP will think of another mean-spirited, false attack to run against Obama.

Why couldn't he just keep his mouth shut?

Paying Taxes is Patriotic
Why do Republicans hate America?


Now here comes Grover Norquist, who compares the senior senator from New York to members
of the political party of Heinrich Himmler and Adolf Eichmann.
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) believes that when this country gives an American the gift of being
able to use his talents to become an extraordinarily wealthy man, it is wrong for that person to
renounce his American citizenship to avoid paying his fair share of taxes.
I cannot think of a proposal more worthy than the bill proposed by Sens. Schumer and Bob Casey
to redress this wrong. I believe the overwhelming majority of patriotic Americans would strongly agree
with Schumer. Grover Norquist has every right to disagree and rise in defense of tax evaders who
renounce their Americanism to avoid their taxes. He even has the right to compare Schumer to the
party of Himmler and Eichmann. But I would propose that this is Exhibit A of what I call the
campaign from hell, an intolerance and vindictiveness unworthy of our nation, in which one party
is exponentially more guilty than the other.

But that should apply to businesses, too.

If congress wasn't full of bought-and-paid-for pigs on the teat, (should I bother to finish this sentence?)
they would pass a law that says if you want to do business in America, you register as an American
corporation and whoever doesn't like it can close up and move to fucking China.

Apple has a PO Box in Ireland, so they avoid paying billions in American taxes.
If congress wasn't 100 percent crooked, we could get that, but noooooooooooooo..

My Break with the Extreme Right
  by Michael Fumento


I was always way ahead of the curve. And my exposés primarily appeared in right-wing publications.
Back when they were interested in serious research. I also founded a conservative college newspaper,
held positions in the Reagan administration and at several conservative think tanks, and published five
books that conservatives applauded. I’ve written for umpteen major conservative publications
– National Review, the Weekly Standard, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, among them.
But no longer. That was the old right. The last thing hysteria promoters want is calm, reasoned
argument backed by facts. And I’m horrified that these people have co-opted the name
“conservative” to scream their messages of hate and anger.

It's cool when a Republican's hate and bigotry goes into remission.

They Rape Kids in Philadelphia
They had 37 rapist priests and did NOTHING

“What makes Philadelphia devastating is allegations that priests who were facing credible
accusation of sex abuse were still working in parishes as recently as February,” says a CNN analyst.
“This is not about misconduct that happened 50 years go. This is about the failures of today.”

The scandal hit Philadelphia five months ago, when a grand jury charged four priests and
a parochial school teacher with raping and assaulting boys in their care.

The charges were unusual because they went beyond accusations against priests.
A church higher-up was charged with covering up the abuse, which church experts say
had never happened in the United States before.

But the grand jury also took the unusual step of releasing a report alleging that as many
as 37 priests remained in ministry in Pennsylvania despite credible accusations of abuse.

Are we really going to send John Edwards to prison for 30 years for paying his blackmailer
and slap the wrists of the monsters  to let 37 rapoists commit their crimes for decades?

Will Hatch get Teabagged?


After spending an astonishing $5 million, Hatch secured 59 percent at last month’s state convention,
three times what Bennett got in ’10. But he fell a handful of votes shy of the 60 percent threshold
that would have handed him the nomination on the spot and was instead forced into a primary with
Liljenquist. There’s been no reputable polling on the race, but the assumption is that Hatch is
comfortably ahead, and that making noise about debates won’t do much to help Liljenquist.
The bad news for Hatch, as Charlie Mahtesian pointed out earlier, is that there’s a lot of time between
now and the June 26 primary. Here the threat to Hatch really isn’t Liljenquist and anything he might say
and do; it’s an outside group or individual deciding to target the race and pour big money into the
anti-Hatch effort. If this were to happen, it might not matter that Hatch has given his enemies little in
the way of ammunition. With enough money, anyone can be made to look bad.

And the one thing Hatch can’t run away from is his political longevity,
which is a liability to today’s outsider/purity-obsessed GOP base.

Subject: Solar


I worked on a fed-funded solar and conservation research project back in the Carter years, and unfortunately,
into the Raygun abyss which is where he sent responsible energy policy.  And that was how many decades ago?

We said back then and it is still true today - solar, et al will not become "popular" or "desirable" until the polluters
have wrung every last penny out of the earth.  Then, they will turn to the "alternatives."  But they will demand
(and get) massive subsidies for their "exploration" and "investment" in the "new" energies.  Same as always.

The tax credits went away while the rest of the world was advancing.  But they will come back, at least for
corporate "citizens" to cushion the "risk" that the multi-national energy conglomerates will take.  Same as always.

Frankly, I do not see things improving BECAUSE their grip is so tight and complete.
You are correct - where is the action?

We can always hope Obama leans Left in his second term.

Dems Push Equal Pay for Women
They know the women-hating GOP will oppose it


Senate Democrats are advancing legislation to beef up equal pay protections for women,
the latest salvo in the election-year battle for women voters.

Milquetoast Harry Reid (D-NV) is set to file cloture Thursday on the Paycheck Protection Act,
which would strengthen protections for women who sue for pay discrimination. The move puts
Republicans in an uncomfortable position as they work to repair their weak brand image with
women voters ahead of the November election.

Five female Democratic senators talked up the bill Wednesday afternoon during a Capitol briefing
— and made clear they intend to hammer Republicans as anti-women if they stand in its way.

Mark your calendar - today is the day when our Democrats got something right.

I'll never forget May 25, 2012.

Obama's Mess: Medical pot in Montana

"I might get 20 years in prison because
  Obama flip-flopped on marijuana policy."


Tom Daubert, 59, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison,
a $500,000 fine for following Montana's pot laws to the letter.

He did NOT count on Obama waging a jihad against his legal business
that was helping sick people.

So, what's the lesson here - don't follow the law?

Maybe second-term Obama will help overturn the craziness of first-term Obama.

Hey Bart,
I think it was me that purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note!
I say "think" because I bookmarked the "Bartcop" commission link a while back
and use it all the time, so when I purchased my phone a couple of days ago
I probably used that link. Hopefully you're getting some smaller ones from me as well because of that.
Gives me a good feeling knowing you got a kickback from that purchase,
and might be a good time to remind people about bookmarking your referral link
so that you'll get "unintentional" commissions like that whenever possible.

Tom, thanks for that.

Bart, loving you on my birthday!

Thanks for all you do!
 Georgia Blue

Georgia Blue, I was so happy when I saw your envelope.
The last two times I went to the Post Office my box was empty.
Seeing your envelope made my day - thanks.

It's sad, lately I've lost some really long-term subscribers, like ten year subscribers.
Maybe they just got tired of my rat-like voice or maybe they needed that $5-10 for bills.

That makes me extra-grateful for those of you who've been able to hang in there with your
subscriptions and occasional donations.  I know a lot of people are hurting.  Thanks,

I hate to spend every day trying to raise money.

If you're shopping online,
it never hurts to check prices.
