DC Liberals Imploding On Their Corruption And Lies

The liberal resurgence which was so inevitable with the 2008 elections, where the Democrats (and their liberal old dog guard in DC) took the reigns of power in DC. It looked as if America was in for years of leftward tacking.

But leave it to those whacky liberals on the far left and their grade school level grasp of reality. They pushed so hard on so many fronts to demonstrate the fallacy of liberal ideas (thinking all the while they were the superior beings coming to the rescue of humanity) that they sunk their own ship of state!

As a prime example, take the utter corruption of the liberal democrat congressman in charge of tax laws and punishment in this country – an arrogant, corrupt, tax cheat the likes of which who has NEVER before been in a such position of power in this great country:

Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income — including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale — on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006, according to newly amended records.

The documents also show the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee — who is being probed by the House Ethics Committee — failed to reveal a staggering $3 million in various business transactions over the same period.

The guy is damn crook, and if he was actually to be treated equally under the laws of this country, as anyone who failed to list MILLIONS of dollars in income, he might well be in jail right now. He would definitely be a convicted felon.

But in the crazy world of liberal zealots he is a ‘leader’. The Dems have the audacity wonder, while Americans struggle through the loss of income and savings on a level not seen for almosts 100 years, why America is turning on these elitists buffoons.

Or take the lame staging of ‘support’ at town halls by bussing in (and probably paying) union thugs to pose as voters from the congressional district:

The people are fed up with these dumb PR tricks. This country is ready to storm DC and physically throw the left wing nuts out, they are so fed up. This country has had it with liberal arrogance backed up by Looney Tunes concepts. It is one thing to hold naive views, it is another to try and ram those views down everyone else’s throats through lies and deceits.

Even President Obama’s administration is lying through its teeth about its health care proposals, apparently ignorant of the fact they had made completely opposite claims, on the record, just days and weeks before:

Two weeks ago, White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said in a now legendary “viral” email that, “It’s a myth that health insurance reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits.” This was sent out the day before Mr. Obama told a Montana town hall that he’d pay for health-care reform by “eliminating . . . about $177 billion over 10 years” for “what’s called Medicare Advantage.” And it was two days before Mr. Obama told a Colorado town hall he’d cover “two-thirds” of the “roughly $900 billion” of his plan’s cost by “eliminating waste,” again citing Medicare Advantage.

Who’s right? As a former senior adviser, I can tell you who: the president.

The levels of buffoonery and corruption have hit such incredible levels is it any wonder America is fed up with the liberal imbeciles? It is just too damn obvious to paper over:

President Obama’s health care “plan” is going down like a handful of tacks, and the Democratic Party, experiencing the political equivalent of a nervous breakdown, is poised to commence a civil war over health reform that could virtually tear the party’s leaders to shreds.

The talking points coming out of the White House these days are harder to follow than a Jessica Simpson autobiography. First, there was the moral imperative that it wanted to move forward with universal health care to cover the 46 million uninsured. This number is misleading. Many of the uninsured are offered insurance and don’t take it, and millions are illegal aliens. More troubling is the fact that the former director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that 43% have the means to buy insurance but don’t. CBO projections among the uninsured in 2009: 18% will be eligible for but not enrolled in Medicaid, and 30% will be offered, but will decline, coverage from an employer, leaving the electorate questioning a full overhaul.

When the original argument fell flat, the White House quickly shifted to an economic imperative that its plan would help cut the rising cost of care. Not so, according to the CBO, which found that the Democratic “plan” will raise – not cut – costs. Nothing blows up a sales pitch like getting mugged by reality.

“Mugged by reality” – that about sums up the rolling liberal disaster playing out in DC and across the nation. Their stimulus bill has provided no job stimulus, their energy bill will kill an already critically injured economy, and their health care plans for government ration health care are competing – headline wise – with the collapse of the UK’s government rationed health care system.

In the last six years, the Patients Association claims hundreds of thousands have suffered from poor standards of nursing, often with ‘neglectful, demeaning, painful and sometimes downright cruel’ treatment.

The charity has disclosed a horrifying catalogue of elderly people left in pain, in soiled bed clothes, denied adequate food and drink, and suffering from repeatedly cancelled operations, missed diagnoses and dismissive staff.

The Patients Association said the dossier proves that while the scale of the scandal at Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust – where up to 1,200 people died through failings in urgent care – was a one off, there are repeated examples they have uncovered of the same appalling standards throughout the NHS.

This horrific health care disaster in the UK is what the liberals in DC all want to have in place here in America as soon as possible. By taking this lunatic stand they have, in effect, picked a fight with the retired WW II generation, the retiring Baby Boom generation, and all their immediate families. It was the dumbest political move ever conceived, and yet the liberals keep attempting to lie and harass their screwed up ideas through.

As if this was not enough, as all these liberal fantasies are ‘mugged by reality’, President Obama and the DC liberal old dog guard has picked a fight with the last group they can afford to do battle with –  all in the lame hope they can tame the lunatic fringe on the left:

The title has been months in the making. Mr. Obama is contending with an angry left that’s riled by his decisions to retain some Bush-era counterterrorism policies. He’s facing Congressional liberals still baying for Bush blood. He’s hired Attorney General Eric Holder, who is giving the term “ideological purity” new meaning. Mr. Obama’s way to appease these bodies? Hang the CIA and Mr. Panetta out to dry.

Reversing prior promises not to prosecute CIA officials who “acted in good faith,” Mr. Holder appointed a special counsel with the ability to prosecute officials who acted in good faith.

The ‘logic’ here is Americans have sympathy for the mass murderers and wannabe mass murderers of al Qaeda, and will line up to attack those fellow Americans who defended this nation from another 9-11. It is the epitome of hubris run amok. Not only will America rally to their fellow Americans on this, everyone knows this is an attempt to feed the brain dead vultures on the left who have been mugged by reality so many times they have come to hate it with a passion. These nuts are out to destroy America for the sin of reminding them how wrong they have been on so many fronts.

Throwing the CIA to these angry masses will not pan out as the DC liberals think, and they have just added another powerful faction to the ranks of their opposition.

The result of all these crude and crass moves? Crashing poll numbers marking the path to a political tsunami in 2012. The path to this political backlash is going to be harsh and ugly, if the crazed left wing nut jobs live up to their usual sewer rat reputations:

Just look at this warped image of a depraved and sick left wing mind. If you oppose President Obama you are clearly just a closet KKK member. Who is wearing the American flag? What is the symbol of America in this grotesque view? And “Teabaggers” are simply people rejecting the massive deficit spending without any positive results – how dare they! The only truth to this pathetic work of ‘art’ is the ‘coming 9/12′ line. Obama will be on his way out of office by this time no doubt.

But it will not be because America is a rabid hole of KKK sympathizers. It will be because liberals truly are that dumb, that crass and that immature that they will have earned the electoral beating they will have wrought. They failed to fix our economy, and instead made it much, much worse by increasing our debt to the point it will take multiple generations to pay it off. They attempted to put in place faceless panels of penny-pinching bureaucrats to determine who was and was not worthy of health care – following the disastrous model of the UK’s NHS. They raised taxes and will have tried to prosecute our protectors as enemies. They have failed.

The crude, crass and immature world view of the liberals is facing a serious (and well deserved) mugging by reality. And it will actually start in this fall’s elections, running through the 2010 mid terms, culminating in the 2012 ‘realignment’.

    THIS IS FROM “freerepublic”,
    Please tell me who is lying. Who is the population most likely to get cancer?

    Doctors: Reimbursement cuts may affect cancer treatment (Target:Radiation Treatments)

    The U.S. Department of Health is proposing a major reduction in reimbursement for cancer treatments. Recently the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced they’re planning on cutting reimbursement rates for radiation cancer treatment — in some cases by 44 percent. “The radiation oncology community was shocked,” said Dr. Robert Miller with Wellspring Oncology Cancer Center. “At the time our cost have gone up higher and higher, they were going to cut the reimbursement by almost in half.” Last year Wellspring spent more than $2 million to by a TomoTherapy machine. It targets only cancer cells while leaving healthy cells…

    Kathie, the lesson here is not to rely on government for anything because they can change the rules whenever they want. There has also been talk on Capitol Hill about confiscating IRA’s and 401Ks and rolling them in to Social Security.

    Don’t rely on Government for ANYTHING.

  3. WWS says:

    confiscating IRA’s and 401K’s – aka the Argentinian model.

    Argentina has done exactly that, with predictable results.

    I suppose it’s no surprise that Peronism is starting to look pretty attractive to the left.

    Apologies for the long post, but then again government has created proportional problems. This was forwarded to me titled “545 versus 300,000,000″. Says it all for me and much more lucidly.

    545 PEOPLE
    By Charlie Reese

    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red …

    If the Army &Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They, and they alone, have the power.

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    I agree KauaiBoy…..that pretty much says it all. I rant about that group (elected Voices).

    Terrye, someone elected The Won. Someone was extremely stupid with Rev Wright screaming in their faces. Black Panthers happened and they walked in our faces.

    I do agree that some of the Pugs need praise. Personally, I think the ONLY reason a lot of them will stick is because of the mob. But several have been truly courageous. Reminds me of watching a townhall of McCain. I am sitting there thinking ‘yeah, yeah, he is finally getting better with this’. And then he opens his mouth and praises The Won to high heaven. But that is not enough. He has to put his face on tv Sunday to label us all Torturers again. Just when I think I can’t get any more disgusted, he tops it. He is the MSM’s token Pug. Still. I am convinced if he had shut up, stayed home, and left it all up to Palin to decide how to fight, he might be President today.

    I truly hate what he did about Abu Ghraib and the Torture. It is no longer all about him.
