Bachmann compares nation’s economic woes to Halocaust

Michelle Bachmann, one of the intelligence-starved bimbos who generate orgasms in the intellectually-challenged tea party, outdid herself this past week, comparing America’s tax burden to the Holocaust. That’s right. The Minnesota Republican congresswoman says the “loss of economic liberty” that Americans face is comparable to the killing of millions of European Jews by the Nazis during World War II. “We are seeing eclipsed in front of our a eyes a similar death and similar taking away,” Bachman told a gathering of the rabid right in Manchester, New Hampshire. “It is this disenfranchisement that I think we have to answer to.”

Obama fires zingers at Trump

President Barack Obama went to town on Donald Trump Saturday night, mocking his possible presidential ambitions in a sendup at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. With Trump in the hotel ballroom audience of celebrities, politicians and journalists, Obama zeroed in on Trump-fed conspiracy theories that he was not U.S.-born. “Donald Trump is here tonight,” Obama said, grinning as he prepared to roast the real estate tycoon turned showman who was a guest of the Washington Post. Obama earlier in the week released a longer version of his birth certificate after Trump had fueled the birth certificate controversy while

Obama accuses oil companies of profiteering

President Barack Obama says oil companies are profiting from rising pump prices and he wants Congress to end $4 billion in annual tax breaks for the oil and gas industry. “These tax giveaways aren’t right,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday. “They aren’t smart. And we need to end them.” Drivers in 22 states are paying more than the national average of $3.91 per gallon. In Alaska, California and Connecticut, it’s $4.20 or more. The price jump has slowed economic growth and hurt Obama’s public approval ratings. Exxon Mobil Corp. this week reported nearly $11 billion

Plummeting Palin tries to recapture limelight

Like a cancer that keep emerging from remission, Sarah Palin is back in public view, dispensing her rhetorical nonsense.   Prime example: She says the nation should take Donald Trump seriously. No, we’re not joking. “Here’s a point with Donald Trump, though, which I hope that he will seize this opportunity: Right now, he’s got the spotlight, he’s got the megaphone. Now is his opportunity to force a shift in debate about a discussion in this country,” Palin says. For example, Palin says Trump is right when it comes to wanting President Barack Obama to release his college writings. “What

Seniors upset with GOP’s plans for Medicare changes

The Republican plan to privatize Medicare wouldn’t touch his benefits, but Walter Dotson still doesn’t like the idea. He worries about the consequences long after he’s gone, for the grandson he is raising. “I’d certainly hate to see him without the benefits that I’ve got,” said Dotson, 72, steering a high school sophomore toward adulthood. The loudest objections to the GOP Medicare plan are coming from seniors, who swung to Republicans in last year’s congressional elections, and many have been complaining at town-hall meetings with their representatives during the current congressional recess. Some experts say GOP policymakers may have overlooked

Obama’s dad was forced to leave Harvard

President Barack Obama’s father was forced to leave Harvard University before completing his Ph.D. in economics because the school was concerned about his personal life and finances, according to newly public immigration records. Harvard had asked the Immigration and Naturalization Service to delay a request by Barack Hussein Obama Sr. to extend his stay in the U.S., “until they decided what action they could take in order to get rid of him,” immigration official M.F. McKeon wrote in a June 1964 memo. Harvard administrators, the memo stated, “were having difficulty with his financial arrangements and couldn’t seem to figure out

Polls show tea party support dropping fast

An increasing number of Americans are fed up with the tea party extremists and their outlandish views on government, a new USA Today/Gallup poll shows. The poll shows 47 percent of those surveyed now hold unfavorable views of the tea party while just 33 percent see the movement in a favorable light. That is a seven percent increase in unfavorable ratings and six percent drop in favorable since the Gallup last surveyed American opinion on the tea party in January. Only 30 percent of independents — the voter bloc crucial for elections — now favor the tea party.  The tea

Birther movement is outright racism

It didn’t take long for the conspiracy lunatics to claim President Barack Obama‘s full birth certificate, released Wednesday, is a fake. What else are they going to do?  Their inherent racism, hate and bigotry cannot allow them to admit the truth. No other President in American history has been asked to provide so much proof of birthrate. Of course, no other President in American history is part African-American. The birthers can bluster all they want and claim all they want is the “truth,” but the truth does not matter to a racist and the birther movement is racism in all

Suspected terrorists able to buy guns legally in U.S.

In 2010, 247 people on the American government’s terrorism watch list were, somehow, able to legally purchase guns in the United states. Despite their listing on what is supposed to be one of the most sensitive monitoring system in the world, each of these people managed to pass the background tests required to purchase a firearm. Why? Because even though those on the list are suspected of ties to groups that want to wage war on the United States, it is not illegal — under current law — for those on the terror list to buy weapons and the National

In a blog-driven world, truth is the first casualty

President Barack Obama‘s decision to release more information about his birthright than any elected leader in U.S. history speaks volumes about the out -of control conspiracy-driven culture that now drives American politics. “There are no more arbiters of truth,” former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tells Politico.Com. “So whatever you can prove factually, somebody else can find something else point to it with enough ferocity to get people to believe it. We’ve crossed some Rubicon into the unknown.” Presidents have longed been dogged by unproven and often outlandish rumors but the blog-driven news cycle today puts undocumented speculation into
