Dems Walkout on Super Committee: Deadlock? Predicted back in August

Its the lead story on Drudge Report right now. Senator Rand Paul talked with Sean Hannity and told him that the Democrats on the Super Committee have walked away from the negotiations. In other words, it looks like a deadlock for now.

Flashback to August: My Yahoo News commentary predicted deadlock and took Mike Miller (Reuters) to the mat. Miller was wrong, I was right. In the commentary I address all of the issues before the super committee and discuss how and why they will deadlock over it. Miller should’ve tapped out and saved himself the brutal beating. Check it out; its not even that long.

And the last paragraph of the commentary…

I predict deadlock. Any other outcome is political suicide. The best possible outcome is for them to be split six and six and let the other automatic cuts be triggered. Every member of every party can then enter the 2012 campaign with one less charge to defend against. This goes for committee members as well as the parties writ large.


Gov. Scott Walker Responds to our Contributor Rachael Jimenez

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has been in the news a lot lately mostly due to his budget proposals to close the state’s budget deficit. In the interest of preserving jobs the state was faced with the reality that public employees should contribute to their own health care and retirement benefits. Naturally leftists were outraged and likened his plan to the Holocaust. Those rational leftists trashed the capitol and eventually lost the battle. But now the state can start to get back to a condition, as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, as “normal”.

But wait one second; what is this? Ameristroika contributor Rachael Jimenez still has questions for Governor Walker which he addressed via youtube:

And it didnt end there. If you know Rachael like I do there is always that “Thank you but…” moment that will inevitably follow any response. And that is why she is a contributor here. It takes here all of about 30 seconds to point out the “Newspeak” contradiction in his response. But I’ll let you discover that for yourself. Read Rachael’s response on her blog here…


$10k Challenge to the GOP

Its in escrow beeyatches!

Its official. The jackass in chief that runs this blog has put up a Ten Thousand Dollar challenge to the North Carolina GOP to prove him wrong. Lets look at the timeline and see what Captain Load Blower learned from Andrew Breitbart.

1) First Release got the GOP on the defensive

2) Second release smashed them to pieces

3) Stewart issued the $10K challenge to prove him wrong (via Twitter)

4)PROFIT???

So the losers at the NC GOP, and at My NC Senate (run by the GOP) havent responded. Stewart has vowed to stop speaking to them in English. His (Stewart’s) logic is ill-formed. After all, if they are having trouble understanding English in America then talking to them in other languages isnt going to help. I understand English and I apply it to Indian multi-media.

EDITORS NOTE (5/14/2011): I am leaving Ben Grier’s (Doctor Warbucks) submission as he originally submitted it. But this is a prime example of why it is a bad idea to give your friends the password to your blog.


“Trumka comes out of a history of militancy” The truth from the Left on a 1 year anniversary of Fail

I find it odd and sort of revealing that this video only has 826 views. Here sits Bill Fletcher Jr and Mike Zweig discussing the left’s agenda with Bill Moyers in 2009. The entire clip is an extremely intimate view into the left’s agenda and their ignorance and/or spin on current events.

Bill Fletcher Jr is the founder of the Radical Black Congress and co-founder of Progressives for Obama along with Danny Glover

Mike Zweig is a co-founder of the SDS (according to PBS) and is active with the AFT and AFL-CIO. Also he is the Editor and Contributor to AFL-CIO funded book Religion and Economic Justice that discusses how important the churches are to the left’s social agenda. (see below for SDS emails)

This video is amazing. In their own words they prove everything that every moderate or right-winger has ever claimed.

Key Points in the video with a little of revisionist history:

at 3:05 Mike Zweig talks about organizing capital on a broader social context. Not shop by shop. The non-producers are advocating for a total control of capital

at 5:00 Bill Moyers hits the crack pipe and says that conservatives “arent afraid of confrontation” and “Why isnt labor more confrontational”? You mean like beating down Kenneth “Uncle Tom” Gladney (On video)

at 11:40 Bill Fletcher says that “[Richard] Trumka comes out of a history of militancy”

More points continued below the video—It gets better (emails from SDS, Sarah Palin, Clarence Thomas, etc)

At 8:15 Bill Fletcher Jr. says that Sarah Palin used the term “working class” more than Obama did on the campaign trail. But he is quick to clarify this; The working class that Palin talks about does not include “Latinos, African Americans, Whites and Asians”

At 15:10 Bill Fletcher echoes Mr. Zweig’s earlier statement about the broader context of capital when he outlines the areas of social justice. (i.e. health care, housing, racial disparities within health care, etc)

18:30 it gets disgusting. Mike Zweig makes the comparison of Obama to Clarence Thomas suggesting this proves his argument for class struggle. Only because it depends on “which African-American” is going to fight for corporations or “working people”

Mike Zweig’s failure in the SDS (emails)

Earlier in the interview Zweig states that labor unions were “proud anti-communists”. We can argue that for decades. However, they were supposed to be democratic and embrace liberal ideology. Either Zweig has failed or like all revolutionaries they stray from their mentors lacking faith in the movement. This is when more radical ideas are adopted.

In an email from the Lewis and Clark SDS listserv the students one year ago today they were meeting to discuss “The Coming Insurrection”. From the email:

How can we, as Radicals, actively work to root out the liberal influence on our communities? How does inaction and liberal dominance of anarchism not only perpetuate but encourage patriarchy, heterosexism, transphobia, white supremacy, and classism?

(If above link gets removed please click image)

Mr. Zweig, you’ve failed. The Students dont believe in your cause or class warfare. They are looking to¬†anarchism¬†just to escape your identity politics.
