Thoughts on Michele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann

I was a Bachmann supporter. She represented EVERYTHING I liked about candidate. Bachmann is a Conservative, she is a Tea Party Conservative, she is a Social Conservative, she is Pro-Israel and she understands that American Exceptionalism requires a strong military.


I suspect if the various Tea Party organizations across the nation would have been more vocal to support the only candidate that directly associated herself as a Tea Party Conservative, her numbers in Iowa would have been sufficient to keep her in the campaign for her to hear the voice of Conservative States. I am talking Conservative States that the Tea Party Movement was very effective in electing Tea Party candidates to Federal, State and Local Offices.


On Wednesday Michele Bachmann ended her campaign with a very awesome speech that all should check out!

I pray the air kicked out of Bachmann’s Presidential campaign does not draw her to conclude to also not run for re-election in her District in Minnesota.

Occupy Thugs and Tea Party Citizens

John R. Houk

© November 4, 2011



Remember when Democrats, Left Wing pundits, MSM and race card organizations like the NAACP accused the Tea Party Movement of being a combination of Right Wing Extremists and racists bent toward a path of guns and violence? Let’s compare the real Tea Party Movement to the Occupy Mobs that are spreading across America.





In a video circulated Tuesday by conservative commentator Glen Beck’s website The Blaze, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson said the Tea Party was preventing African Americans from making progress toward equality.


“This is the effort that we are seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree,” Carson said at a Aug. 22 Congressional Black Caucus Job Tour even in Miami.



Another Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also had harsh words for the Tea Party last week when she said members of the movement could “go straight to hell.”


“I’m not afraid of anybody. This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. As far as I’m concerned the Tea Party can go straight to hell,” Waters said at an Aug. 20 “Kitchen Table Summit” which she hosted with her fellow California Democrats Rep. Karen Bass and Rep. Laura Richardson. (Rep. Andre Carson: Tea Party Wants To See Blacks ‘Hanging On A Tree’; By Amy Bingham; ABC New – The Note, Aug 31, 2011 10:51am)


Left Wing Pundits



We also held the belief that the Tea Party movement was inherently dishonest, and certainly dangerous. One need only look at their signs and their rhetoric at their so called rallies. Or the town hall meetings where they set the standard for thuggish behavior and mob mentality intended to intimidate and threaten. Or how they attack those they disagree with, like the man with Parkinsons at a healthcare reform rally or the woman that three men from the Tea Party beat up at a Rand Paul political rally.


Given the movement’s evil and hateful foundation, we also thought the movement would implode on itself at some point and for any number of reasons. Perhaps the abject greed that is its foundation would cause it to feed on the very people who supported it. Or maybe the core of hatred that sustains it would result in internacine warfare. Or with so many Republican ‘Tea Party’ candidates having taken advantage of the limited attention span of the American voter and getting elected, America would finally see the despicable character of the individuals who expediently rode the anger and vitriol of the movement for their own personal, and the GOP’s gain, like dead-beat dad Joe Walsh of Illinois, and realize they had been duped into supporting people that represented a movement that could care less about effective governance, or the well being of the United States of America as a whole.



Of course, this does not mean that the Tea Party is gone, or that it won’t still pose a threat to fair minded and patriotic Americans. In the months ahead, we can expect to see the movement become more angry, more volatile, and even more dangerous as it desperately seeks to remain relevant. However, as the recent polling has shown, it is far, far too late for the Tea Party Movement to save itself or the hateful doctrine it embraces. It was always a movement founded on lies, disinformation and fear, and such a movement cannot, and will not survive in the greatest country on earth. (The Tea Party doctrine of hate makes the movement less popular then Gays and Muslims!; By E. Gray; Don’t Tea on Me, September 6, 2011)


Mainstream Media



And while the public image of the Tea Party focuses on a desire to shrink government, concern over big government is hardly the only or even the most important predictor of Tea Party support among voters.


So what do Tea Partiers have in common? They are overwhelmingly white, but even compared to other white Republicans, they had a low regard for immigrants and blacks long before Barack Obama was president, and they still do.


More important, they were disproportionately social conservatives in 2006 — opposing abortion, for example — and still are today. Next to being a Republican, the strongest predictor of being a Tea Party supporter today was a desire, back in 2006, to see religion play a prominent role in politics. And Tea Partiers continue to hold these views: they seek “deeply religious” elected officials, approve of religious leaders’ engaging in politics and want religion brought into political debates. The Tea Party’s generals may say their overriding concern is a smaller government, but not their rank and file, who are more concerned about putting God in government.


This inclination among the Tea Party faithful to mix religion and politics explains their support for Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Their appeal to Tea Partiers lies less in what they say about the budget or taxes, and more in their overt use of religious language and imagery, including Mrs. Bachmann’s lengthy prayers at campaign stops and Mr. Perry’s prayer rally in Houston.


Yet it is precisely this infusion of religion into politics that most Americans increasingly oppose. While over the last five years Americans have become slightly more conservative economically, they have swung even further in opposition to mingling religion and politics. It thus makes sense that the Tea Party ranks alongside the Christian Right in unpopularity.


On everything but the size of government, Tea Party supporters are increasingly out of step with most Americans, even many Republicans. Indeed, at the opposite end of the ideological spectrum, today’s Tea Party parallels the anti-Vietnam War movement which rallied behind George S. McGovern in 1972. The McGovernite activists brought energy, but also stridency, to the Democratic Party — repelling moderate voters and damaging the Democratic brand for a generation. By embracing the Tea Party, Republicans risk repeating history. (Crashing the Tea Party; By DAVID E. CAMPBELL and ROBERT D. PUTNAM; New York Times – The Opinion Pages, August 16, 2011)


Left Wing – Race Card Organizations


“A watched tea pot never boils.”


That’s the rallying slogan of a new online “watchdog” site launched by the NAACP, in conjunction with partners ThinkProgress, George Soros’ Media Matters and a group called New Left Media. advertises itself as a site that “monitors racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”


According to the Daily Caller, the NAACP reached out to the various groups for help in compiling information implicating the Tea Party:


Media Matters and Think Progress representatives said their content and reporting haven’t changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content they’ve produced. The NAACP’s new is aimed specifically at highlighting “racism” in the Tea Party.


New Left Media, the duo of Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll who use a “Trojan trick” to get interviews with Tea Partiers, is also a partner organization on the new site.


As for what Media Matters, New Left Media, Think Progress and the NAACP plan to do with, Think Progress editor Faiz Shakir and Media Matters Vice President for Research and Communications Ari Rabin-Havt said the NAACP contacted them about sharing content related to the Tea Party.


Tea Partiers beware — the NAACP is watching you, and they now have a website where people can post “evidence” of racism and extremism.  But despite Andrew Breitbart’s offer of a sizable reward for solid evidence, there remains none. (NAACP Joins Left-Wing Groups to ‘Monitor’ Tea Party Groups; By Meredith Jessup; The Blaze, September 3, 2010 at 1:39am)


In their report, “Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism,” Intelligence Report, Spring 2010, asserts that the Tea Party movement is “shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism.” They quote radical scribe Chip Berlet, who breathlessly charges, “We are in the midst of one of the most significant right-wing populist rebellions in United States history.” The SPLC goes on to complain that only 25 percent of respondents to a recent NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll think the federal government can be trusted. And, according to the SPLC, another dangerous sign of the times is the introduction in 37 state legislatures of “Tenth Amendment Resolutions,” based on the constitutional provision keeping all powers not explicitly given to the federal government with the states. (Targeting the Tea Parties; By Wayne Lutton; The Social Contract Press, Volume 20, Number 3 (Spring 2010), Issue theme: “The Southern Poverty Law Center – A Special Report“)



All of these fears that are actually propaganda lies from the Left are pointed to the Tea Party Movement. NOW, after the Occupy Movement is spreading across the nation, there is an extreme lack of reporting on the real violence and thuggery going on inspired by the Left.


Jeff Jacoby has written an article entitled, “Occupiers, Tea Partiers, and the Tenth Amendment.” Jacoby exposes this Leftist hypocrisy of accusing the Tea Party Movement rallies of all kinds of despicable acts when the reality is these dysfunctional Occupy kids not only have no idea what they are protesting but are receiving an education on how to protest from Left Wing interests that are promoting violence and anarchy against the legal authorities AND also exacting vandalism, theft and rape. I dare anyone that is not a lunatic that say this same action occurs at Tea Party Movement rallies.

Occupy Wall Street: Bettering or Destroying America?

Hmm… Is the Occupy Wall Street crowd as honorable, more honorable or less honorable than the Tea Party Movement? The Occupy Wall Street crowd are just a bunch of American hating kids receiving guidance from Left Wing interests intent on transforming America into a Leftist utopia devoid of the precepts of the Founding Fathers and rational Christian ethics.

Is Sarah Palin now Irrelevant?

Sarah Palin shrugging


John R. Houk

© October 7, 2011


Judson Phillips writing for the Tea Party Nation believes Sarah Palin will nearly become irrelevant as a mover and shaker in Conservative politics after her announcement that she is not seeking the GOP nomination for President. Phillips believes her “superstar” value began to depreciate from the moment of her announcement.


I know I am a diehard supporter of Palin so I want to disagree with Phillips’ analysis of Palin’s political prospects. I believe on a grassroots level that a push on whoever wins the GOP nomination should be pressured to select Sarah Palin as the VP nominee.


Phillips is willing to believe that Palin might reinvent herself in a later election much as Richard Nixon did after losing to John F Kennedy in 1960. Personally I believe President Reagan’s journey is a better axiom to follow. After all Reagan went from movie star power, Conservative Governor of California, losing a couple of GOP nominations for President, then winning the GOP nomination and then winning the 1980 election for President.


Phillips uses statistics to show that Palin is no longer electable in Alaska citing lower popularity than should exist in her home State; however I am not convinced that is entirely the case as much as the good old boy Republican establishment of Alaska despises Sarah Palin. (Can you say Senator Lisa Murkowski?)


Phillips looks to a Palin rising star to possibly occur in Arizona to tackle a GOP nomination to replace retiring Senator Kyl. Nothing is impossible in politics but Palin has gone to great lengths to place her home as the State of Alaska. She loves the State that her primary growing up years had occurred.


Pointing to the recent death of Steve Jobs Phillips also used his life as an analogy of how Palin might come back. For instance Jobs was fired from the Apple Company he had founded only to return to save Apple’s butt when hard times had happened twelve years later. That is a good analogy.

Overcome the Leftist Pursuit of Crisis Creation

Leftist Media Lying

John R. Houk

© January 11, 2011


A huge tragedy happened on the American scene when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was part of an assassination attempt that killed others including a Judge and a nine year old gal but left the Representative in critical condition. One would think the incident would form one of those rare unified moments in America as when everyone was on the same page on 9/11 (at least momentarily). Unfortunately this is not what happened.


Leftist talking heads and bloggers immediately blamed the Tea Party Movement and unsurprisingly Sarah Palin. Evidently Leftist hatred spurred by popular voting to remove the Democrats from power in the House and slimming down the gap of the Dem majority in the Senate, has led to a propaganda moment that Leftists could not resist.


Leftist propaganda strategy is to twist military and target practice terminology utilized by the Tea Party and Palin as a reason for Jared Loughner’s inability to internally resist putting into action the shooting of Rep. Giffords. After all, it is true Rep. Giffords barely retained her seat from opposing Tea Party Republican candidate Jesse Kelly which had a lot of support from Sarah Palin as well. Giffords won by a mere 2% of the vote over Kelly. Kelly was a pro-gun Iraq war veteran that probably lost because of a M16 target shooting spree. The M16 incident was projected by Leftist propaganda as the actions of a Right Wing Nut which was framed as the actual target practice of incumbent candidate Giffords. Kelly’s pro-gun humor as an election antic for supporters became fodder for anti-gun skilled polemicists of the Left. This undoubtedly cost Kelly the victory in Arizona District 8. Left Wing polemicists and an amazing amount of Center-Right polemicists hopped on the band wagon of blame, to point fingers at Kelly’s M16 event and Palin’s cross hairs scope as reasons for Loughner’s shooting spree.


This blood pointing toward Conservative Tea Partiers is the height of hypocrisy as if Democrats never utilize military terminology in campaign strategy. When one thinks of Leftists one should think of the failed transformative ideology of Socialist Marxism. A good Leftist idea for society is to transform it. Transformation means killing people that might not agree with Marxism or Socialism; hence the genocides of Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. (No, Hitler was not a Right Winger: NAZI stood for political National Socialism and not practicing Free Speech, Religious Freedom or Market Economies.) Apparently some Dem Party strategists (oh my, a military term) quickly thought up the Rahm Emanuel axiom of never letting a good crisis to be wasted. A “blame the Tea Party” mantra was quickly established by the Democratic Party. In campaigning, it is a truism in elections that utilize military or violent terminology is something used on both the Left and Right as symbolic metaphors. Obviously the Right will use gun metaphors because they tend to be pro-Second Amendment; however I am guessing the Left utilizes an obfuscating version of weaponry to drive a point home.


Here is a blip from dt:


You’d think the right, and the Tea Party in particular, would pause to consider that the intimations and subtle endorsements of violent revolution might be misguided. But the founder of the Tea Party, Judson Phillips, has a different idea: Blame it on the left.


Of the shooting, Phillips wrote, “The left is coming and will hit us hard on this. We need to push back harder with the simple truth. The shooter was a liberal lunatic. Emphasis on both words.”


What’s even more mindboggling than his attempt to shift blame is that Phillips—even now—persists with the metaphors of violence. In the Tea Party worldview, the left’s critique is an attack, something that warrants counter-attack—it’s all a matter of transgressing battle lines.


Did you catch “violent revolution”? Does anyone know the paradigm in Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist global transformation? How Right Wing is it for Judson Phillips to claim correctly that assassin Jared Loughner was a “liberal lunatic”? I mean the young killer idolized Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto! The Left has attempted to paint a picture of Loughner as a Right Winger by placing Hitler and Marx in as an afterthought. If there is any Right Wing in Loughner it is of the fringe kind. For the Left all people on the Right are near to Skin Heads and for the violent overthrow of American by Militias. Dear God in Heaven a former High School acquaintance said of Loughner: “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy”. Loughner is indeed a Leftist loon.


Leftist Michael J.W. Stickings writes:


Perhaps this will be a turning point, a tipping point. Perhaps now the media and others will start paying attention to the rhetoric of violence that animates American conservatism today. You don’t have to go far to find it. Just listen to the Tea Party, to Beck, to Palin. They need to be held accountable.


I wonder if America’s Leftists should wish quid pro quo accountability for deceiving Americans into voting for Presidential candidate that has this list of American haters some of which call for the overthrow of America:


Bill Ayers


“We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”


The quotes above were scanned directly from a now long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, which was written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground. In this slim volume, which functioned as the Weather Underground’s ideological manifesto, Ayers declares himself to be a communist, and announces that his group’s bombing campaign was intended to start a violent revolution to overthrow the American government.


Saul Alinsky


In the Alinsky model, “organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution” – a wholesale revolution whose ultimate objective is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly oppressed segment of the population, and the radical transformation of America’s social and economic structure. The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels and Lenin predicted – a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and wholly unworthy of salvation. Thus, the theory goes, the people will settle for nothing less than the status quo’s complete collapse – to be followed by the erection of an entirely new system upon its ruins. Toward that end, they will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision, and who profess to clearly what types of societal “changes” are needed.


Jeremiah Wright


This view is entirely consistent with Rev. Wright’s devotion to the tenets of liberation theology, which is essentially Marxism dressed up as Christianity. Devised by Cold War-era theologians, it teaches that the gospels of Jesus can be understood only as calls for social activism, class struggle, and revolution aimed at overturning the existing capitalist order and installing, in its stead, a socialist utopia where today’s poor will unseat their “oppressors” and become liberated from their material (and, consequently, their spiritual) deprivations. An extension of this paradigm is black liberation theology, which seeks to foment a similar Marxist revolutionary fervor founded on racial rather than class solidarity. Wright’s mentor in this discipline is James Cone, author of the landmark text Black Power and Black Theology. Arguing that Christianity has been used by white society as an opiate of the (black) masses, Cone asserts that the destitute “are made and kept poor by the rich and powerful few,” and that “[n]o one can be a follower of Jesus Christ without a political commitment that expresses one’s solidarity with victims.”


Louis Farrakhan



According to Schlussel, “… a former Obama insider says that Obama’s sudden aversion to NOI and Farrakhan is belied by the fact that Obama employed and continues to employ several Farrakhan acolytes in high positions on his Illinois and U.S. Senate campaign and office staffs.”


One of those NOI members is Cynthia K. Miller, who served as Treasurer of his Senate campaign. Another NOI member is Jennifer Mason who currently serves as Obama’s Director of Constituent Services and who oversees the hiring of interns for Obama.



Sen. Obama’s pastor, Dr. Jeremiah Wright has been in the news recently over his anti-Israel statements and his recent awarding of a lifetime achievement award to his friend, Louis Farrakhan. The racist head of the Nation of Islam has referred to Judaism as a “gutter religion” and said that whites are only “potential” humans.


Father Michael Pfleger


Pfleger’s views on race were shaped, in large measure, by black radicalism in the 1960s. “I got very educated by the [Black] Panthers — very educated,” Pfleger once told Trumpet magazine, a publication of Rev. Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ.

Pfleger is also a great admirer of Louis Farrakhan: “I’ve known the minister [Farrakhan] both as someone who I have great respect for as a prophetic voice, as a mentor but also as a friend and as a brother,” said Pfleger.


More on Pfleger from Michelle Malkin:


Pfleger (who is white) grabbed the spotlight during the 2008 presidential campaign with jive-talking defenses of his fellow race-hustler and President Obama’s spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah “‘God Damn America!’ and ‘AmeriKKKa!’” Wright, and Jew-bashing hate-monger Louis “Judaism Is a ‘Gutter Religion’” Farrakhan. The racial-justice award winner called the latter a “great man” and welcomed him to his church.


There are more Obamanites that want to transform America away from the land of the free and home of the brave and who desire the pursuit of happiness, but I think you get the point. The kind of change these fellows want would stir a chaos in America that would lead to innumerable deaths of Americans. Where was the outrage of Leftist pundits, politicians and cowardly establishment Conservatives in 2008?


My God! Just think if Rep. Giffords was a Black-American or a Hispanic-American? Not only would the Tea Party Movement and Sarah Palin be blamed for the murder of six and attempted assassination of Giffords, the entire Conservative Movement from fiscal, 2nd Amendment, 10th Amendment and social Conservatives would be labeled as the promulgators of violence; ergo all things that are Conservative values must be suppressed to continue the Leftist vision of a Living Constitution that evolves with the temperament of the environment of NOW. Whatever that Leftist “NOW” is.


My fellow Conservatives here is a militant euphemism for you: Rise up and out-shout the Leftist propagandists to show that most American prefer Judeo-Christian Conservative values over the Leftist pursuit to never let a good crisis go to waste.

Unite to Reverse the Obama Curse

Obama Narcissus lg

John R. Houk

© November 16, 2010


Joe Wierzbicki writing this time for Our Country Deserves Better is putting a call to Conservatives to begin mobilizing to defeat President Barack Hussein Obama in November 2012. The call is actually a fund raiser in preparation of the political war chest to support the best Conservative candidate to unseat Leftist Barack Hussein Obama. Chances are in 2012 that candidate with the best electability will be a Republican. As usual I personally will support any person who finally wins the Republican nomination. I just pray it is not a RINO like Senator McCain this time around. Although McCain would have been a way better President than BHO, I suspect the Tea Party Movement would be working today to unseat a President McCain if it had turned out that way.


This time around Republicans must select a candidate that is both electable and has the heartbeat that voters demonstrated in this last 2010 election. I have some personal choices that start with Sarah Palin. Even so I am not sure if Palin is an electable candidate for the Office of President. Time will tell if Palin is able to step up to the plate and knock the spitballs of the Leftist Democratic Party Machine and the Left leaning Mainstream Media (MSM). Palin will have to hit more than a single or a double to bring the entire stadium to its feet cheering her around first or second base. Palin will have to hit the smearing spitball out of the park to get the whole the stadium to stand up and cheer Palin in the homerun jog around the bases to home plate.


Wierzbicki’s email fund raiser call comes with a petition. In my opinion such a petition serves the purpose of garnering a measurement of the kind of support Conservatives will give toward unseating BHO. The petition will reveal a strategy to proceed to unseat BHO. Even though you may be the recipient of fund raising emails for the next two years it will be worth it to be a part of the emerging plan to unseat BHO. The Our Country Deserves Better petition will not only benefit that Political Action Committee because shared data between the multitude PACs will bring a sense of cohesion to the electorate to offset the warping of the truth as Senator Harry Reid did to Sharron Angle and potentially the same warping of truth by RINO incumbent Senator Murkowski (Mercowsky, Murcowski, Murkowsky and so on) has done to Republican challenger Joe Miller.


So sign the petition donate to Our Country Deserves Better or another authentic Conservative PAC and let’s unite to bring down BHO’s concept of Change to America: Reverse the Obama Curse.

The 2010 elections saw conservatives make a lot of progress as conservatives and tea party-backed candidates won hundreds of races.  There were a lot of great victories – but we also saw that much work still needed to be done.


Some races where we badly wanted to win, and knock off entrenched and corrupted liberal politicians, ended up being losses for us because the big-money, liberal establishment simply overpowered and overwhelmed us.


Harry Reid spent $25 MILLION smearing his conservative  challenger.  Liberal RINO Lisa Murkowski spent millions more smearing her tea party challenger, Joe Miller.


So now as we look forward to 2012, and the goal of firing Barack Obama – and ending this slide towards socialism he is pushing, we know we have to put together a huge army of supporters to overpower his political machine that he has spent years building.


And that is why the Our Country Deserves Better Committee (the people who brought you the Tea Party Express effort) have launched a campaign to get 1 MILLION people on board to “Defeat Barack Obama.”


The first step is easy – we need you to sign up, and forward this campaign to every friend you have who will join us in the fight to “Defeat Barack Obama.”  We know we can reach 1 MILLION people if every person such as yourself does your part.


Again, the first step is easy – just sign up.  If you receive a solicitation at the petition site asking for a donation, know that none is required.  This petition drive to reach 1 MILLION people is absolutely free, and if they are asking for a donation it is to support their petition website, but you are under no obligation to give any money to sign up.

Leftist Anti-Tea Party Propaganda in Full Swing

Shout Racist Win Debate

John R. Houk

© October 30, 2010


One of the favorite rites of Leftist propaganda is to accuse the Tea Partiers of being bigots, racists, xenophobes and religious extremists. One day I was searching for some Tea Party Movement information via Google. During the search I had a “surprise-surprise” moment of finding loads of MSM both at home and abroad the Leftist propaganda I just wrote about.


George Monbiot writing for the UK’s Guardian wrote a piece about the Tea Party Movement in America because – GASP! – People on a grassroots level are beginning to adopt the principles of less government, fiscal responsibility and less taxation. Thus Monbiot writes what he believes is a straight line from the past to the present believing Tea Partiers are well meaning dupes in which Big Business under the auspices of billionaire family Koch (Oil and Energy Business) are financing the Tea Party and a host of Conservative Think Tanks to influence lower taxation for the wealthy and Big Business. Monbiot includes historic racists and Right Wing Conspiracy Theorists (such as the John Birch Society – JBS) are the roots of today’s Tea Partiers.


Think about that oxymoronic thought: well meaning people coupled with racist Right Wing xenophobes in the same brain explosive thought pattern of Monbiot.


The Tea Party … is mostly composed of passionate, well-meaning people who think they are fighting elite power, unaware that they have been organised by the very interests they believe they are confronting. We now have powerful evidence that the movement was established and has been guided with the help of money from billionaires and big business.


Charles and David Koch own 84% of Koch Industries, the second-largest private company in the United States. It runs oil refineries, coal suppliers, chemical plants and logging firms, and turns over roughly $100bn a year; the brothers are each worth $21bn. The company has had to pay tens of millions of dollars in fines and settlements for oil and chemical spills and other industrial accidents. The Kochs want to pay less tax, keep more profits and be restrained by less regulation. Their challenge has been to persuade the people harmed by this agenda that it’s good for them.


Are the Koch’s environmentally evil hurting the people they are throwing money toward? There is a good chance they are which has to make the Eco-Conspiracy Theorists (i.e. on the Left side) incomprehensibly lunatic. Left Wing Eco-Conspiracy Theorists are concerned about the carbon footprint destroying the earth ecosystem which in turn will kill the earth which will in turn kill off humanity. Who is at fault? Of course it is Big Business.


If a fair tax or a less Socialistically intrusive tax that not only benefits the profit of the rich and powerful (Left and Right by the way) but also benefits the working Middle Class because higher revenue means more money into the hands of the Working Middle Class which betters the non-rich’s quality of life as well. Is this a case of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? No! It is a case of the rich getting richer, the poor becoming better off and entrepreneur individual utilizing hard work and innovation to join the rich. Friends, this is America. Friends, this is a repudiation of a Socialistic dominated economy such as in Europe.


If the Tea Party is more about grassroots benefits, then the Koch beneficence does not connect the grassroots Tea Partiers to some nefarious design of the Koch brothers and Big Business. As to the ecology: ecological abuse that harms individuals is one of the reasons government exists. Instead of intruding in the lives of individuals government is to protect the lives of individuals. I only thing that I will agree with the Left about is that Big Business and its wealthy business elites need to be held accountable for making land and/or life dangerous for individuals. Often times the penalty needs to be a penalty above a fine that Big Business simply throws money at even if it is a temporary loss. Rather the penalty ALSO should be jail time for the people involved in directing a crime against humanity. Although the Koch’s efforts may be self-serving, the reality is Koch money is going to a movement demanding fiscal responsibility and responsible taxation rather than the failed economics of Socialism.


The connection to racism and xenophobia is amusing as well.


This section is not intended to be exhaustive or comprehensive.  The highlights presented here are drawn from scholarly studies and reporting on the movement by the Southern Poverty Law Center.


The Neo-Confederate Movement


In their study of the development of the neo-Confederate movement Edward Sebesta and Euan Hague identified Robert Lewis Dabney, a rather marginal 19th century theologian, when judged against his contemporaries, as “arguably the most significant early advocate of a theological perspective of the Civil War.”



Sebesta and Hague wrote, “Dabney believed that the Bible legitimated slavery, and thus opposition to slavery was tantamount to rejecting Christianity.”1



Sebesta and Hague identified a “theological war thesis, an assessment that interprets the nineteenth century CSA [Confederate States of America] to be an orthodox Christian nation and understands the 1861-1865 US Civil War to have been a theological war over the future American religiosity fought between devout Christian and heretical Union states.”2



Three key theologians and theoreticians trace their own intellectual lineage back to Dabney—the late Rousas J. Rushdoony, founder of Christian Reconstructionism at the Chalcedon Foundation; Steven Wilkins, co-founder (with history professor Michael Hill) of the racist, secessionist League of the South; and Douglas Wilson, who heads the Association of Classical and Christian Schools, the Confederation of Reformed Evangelicals, Credenda/Agenda, Canon Press, and New Saint Andrews College—all of them located in Moscow, Idaho.



Goldberg’s book has chapters on homosexuality, Intelligent Design, abstinence sex education, and the Bush administration’s faith-based initiative.  But, central to the effort to achieve their goal of re-establishing the historical revisionist interpretation of America being founded as a “Christian nation” is the “war on the courts.”  Goldberg noted that the “Christian nationalists view the courts as the last intolerable obstacle to their palingenetic dream.  Believing America to be a Christian nation, they see any ruling that contradicts their theology as de facto unconstitutional, and its enforcement tyrannical.  They’re convinced that they must destroy the judiciary’s power to liberate themselves.”  Moreover, the Christian nationalist effort to strip the U.S. Supreme Court and lower federal courts from hearing cases related to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause “could let state governments criminalize abortion and gay sex [read vociferous advocacy of states’ rights under the Tenth Amendment].  It could sanction the reinstitution of school prayer and the teaching of creationism and permit the ever greater Christianization of the country’s social services…It could intrude into the most intimate corners of Americans’ private lives.”7 (Origins of the Tea Party Movement: Part IV-B – Paul’s Network Components; James Scaminaci III 3/23/10)


This is a typical Leftist who is actually a history revisionist claiming the Christian Right are a bunch of historical revisionists. Scaminaci hasn’t made his point yet but he working his way to connect the present day Tea Party Movement of less government and less taxation to the Confederate Southern culture sympathizers as a theologically justified war by the South who are Black Slavery enthusiasts ergo the Tea Party are racist Afro-American hating bigots.


Scaminaci sees this “Neo-Confederacy” crowd became Christian Reconstructionists. The Christian Reconstructionists are the political influence of the Christian Right. Now if you are a Christian Right kind of person (meaning you are a Values vote politically and a Believer in the inerrancy of the Bible) and you either know little to nothing at all about Christian Reconstructionism, here is a small primer:


The modern Christian Reconstructionist (sometimes called Dominionism) was founded by Rousas J. Rushdoony, a writer and theologian whose 1973 book The Institutes of Biblical Law,” denounced the modern conception of democracy as “heresy” and called for the imposition of a Calvinist government similar to that of the Puritans in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, where “”In colonial New England the covenantal concept of church and state was applied. Everyone went to church, but only a limited number had voting rights in the church and therefore the state, because there was a coincidence of church membership and citizenship. The others were no less believers, but the belief was that only the responsible must be given responsibility. One faith, one law, and one standard of justice did not mean democracy. The heresy of democracy has since then worked havoc in church and state, and it has worked towards reducing society to anarchy.” [1]


In accordance with Levitical law, capital crimes in a Christian Reconstructionist society would include homosexuality, adultery, abortion, blasphemy, disobedience to one’s parents, idolatry and violation of the Sabbath. Rushdoony told Bill Moyers in 1988 that “The Bible identifies 15 crimes against the family worthy of the death penalty. Abortion is treason against the family and deserves the death penalty. Adultery is treason to the family; adulterers should be put to death. Homosexuality is treason to the family, and it too, is worthy of death.” [2] This point was confirmed by Christian Reconstructionist Gary DeMar on an Atlanta Radio show during which the following exchange took place:


Gonzales: If, indeed the Reconstructionist movement ever made it in America, would you advocate these biblical principles being carried out: the execution of the adulterer, the abortionist, and the homosexual? DEMAR: I’m saying that they could be implemented, yes. [3]


Many Christian Reconstructionists advocate the reinstitution of slavery as a punishment for non-capital offenses. … (Conservapedia)


You should know Christian Reconstructionism is very small and is repudiated by most that are aware of it in the Christian Right. Most of the Christian Right may wish to have America’s Christian foundations attributed to the moral values that have made America a great nation, but I can think of no authentic Christian Right person and involved in politics who would wish the American Constitution to be amended establishing any form of Christianity as the State Church. Any State established Church would then be in a position to persecute all the other Denominations of Christianity. It is not like everyone on the Christian Right agrees absolutely with other Christian Right independent Churches or Dominations. I can see Charismatic/Pentecostals and Baptists doing some major theological clashes even though politically their positions are the same.


The many variations in Christian theology are one reason the Founding Fathers emphasized religious freedom and forbade Congress to establish a State Church. The concept was to prevent the government from meddling in the Christian religion but not Christianity from influence the government in Christian goodness and morality. The Left has a problem with that thus they have chosen to interpret the Jeffersonian phrase of “separation of Church and State” written to a Baptist Church meant the government would not get involved in Church affairs. As much as the probable Christian Deist referred to the Providence of the Creator I am convinced his concept of “separation of Church and State” did not mean Christianity should not have an influence for the good to be infused into government. Just to note to the Leftists: Jefferson’s letter to a local Baptist Church with phrase “separation of Church and State” is found NO WHERE in the United States Constitution let alone NOT in the First Amendment.


This is a huge reason most on the Christian Right deny any political ideas of Christian Reconstructionism restructuring America into a Christian nation with the enforcement of Levitical Laws that even modern Judaism abhors. The annoying appellation by the Left of the Christian Taliban for all of the Christian Right would indeed be applicable to Christian Reconstructionists.


You can see where Scaminaci is going, right? He is alluding to the Obama description of Americans who support the 2nd Amendment and to Christians that believe the Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God.


“And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”.  


Tea Partiers thus are the same ignorant fellows that cling to their guns, religion and have antipathy toward (illegal) immigrants.


Frank Gaffney wrote a recent article entitled, “What I Learned at the Tea Party”. I fairly confident that the likes of Monbiot and Scaminaci will erupt into fits of the accusation racism after reading Gaffney. The article is about his address at two Tea Party meetings in Houston, TX. Gaffney’s address actually had little to do with Big Government, fiscal responsibility and lower taxes. Gaffney spoke on something close to my heart that Americans (Left and Right and in between) are nearly ignorant of the very un-American culture of Islam and Sharia Law. As a Tea Partier you have to ask, “What in the world was Gaffney thinking talking about the threat of Islam to our culture, American Liberty and the U.S. Constitution?”


Here is the thing about this minority representation of modern Islam: The Muslims claiming to be moderate are more and more being influenced by the purist ideology of those Muslims described by the West and moderate Muslims as radical Islam. The intellectuals of Islamic academia residing in the Middle East are more and more accepting the tenets of radical Islam. Indeed the majority of literature flowing to Islamic schools and Mosques in America comes from the area steeped in Wahhabi/Salafi doctrine.

Midterm Elections SarahPAC Money Bomb

Palin Gazing from Alaska to Cap. Building

Conservatives4Palin as well as Tea Partiers who have an understanding of the meaning of the Sarah Palin phenomenon assume she will be running for President in 2012 and will the GOP nomination to defeat President Barak Hussein Obama.


My understanding of this phenomenon is that Palin has become a political icon or at least a political representation of the main components of the Tea Party Movement. Those components are:


·       Fiscal Responsibility


·       Limited Government


·       Free Market


·       Fair or less Taxation


Who better to implement Tea Party principles than Sarah Palin who has crossed the lines of the various local Tea Party organizations supporting Tea Party Conservatives (mostly GOP) to throw the Leftist bums out?
