[Journ.]

Every morning I awake and trudge to the office at my flat here in the 71st arondissment of Dis and turn on my computer. My hour or so of research before I head Uptown to the main office begins with conservative blogs. Gateway Pundit, Breitbart, RedState, Fox Nation and the Blaze. occasionally, I visit Atlas Shrugged and Malkin if I’m feeling particularly frisky.

This morning was no different than any other in an election year; I am looking for trends in the speech of the opposition. If you hadn’t noticed I’m a social and economic Progressive. Gotcha politics is easy for people who don’t think; making connections in how the opposition speaks to the issues is like panning for gold. This morning I found a really big shiny nugget in my pan.

The US economy is not really winning any gold medals right now. I’m a firm believer in the policies of Barack Obama will bring the economy out of its sluggishness sometime in Q2 2014 as our in house economic expert Carl Pryor has been saying for nearly three years. Actually, Pryor has pushed his full recovery date [Pryor measures this with the rate of unemployment being below 6%] back from Q3 2015 a few months ago when Romney became the de facto GOP nominee noting, “There’s no way this man will win and this being the case the Affordable care Act is in no jeopardy.” This makes me wonder though. If I were running as the challenger to a man that’s presiding over a nation that is since 1946 been used to having a wasteful abundance but finds itself in a employment challenge recovery I would be hammering the incumbent on his failure to create jobs.

There’s a problem with this though. Mitt Romney is the candidate. A man, who to quote one of the least intelligent men on the Internet, Mark Edward Noonan, has never been in the business of “make, mine and grow.” Now this distributist belief of Mark Edward Noonan isn’t a tongue in cheek homage to penis enlargement ads it’s really a tenet of his brand of Roman Catholicism. Romney is a very wealthy man and despite this there are going to be millions of people in that 47% about which the candidate cares nothing that are going to give him their vote because they would do anything to deny President Barack Obama a second term. The real problem here is that Romney doesn’t have a voice that can clearly state what he would do to give Americans the jobs they crave and need.

The nugget I panned this morning is that across the conservative blogosphere on the front pages there are only two mentions of the US economy. Out of a biblical torrent of words and images only two, The Blaze and RedState mention the word. Conversely, here at the Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork there are four mentions. Why is this? Well fellow traveler I will tell you! Romney’s wealth is a burden on his campaign. I know the man is a generous giver to charity but the word economy makes people think about taxes and tax rates. America is no longer a nation with an expanding middle class. While this isn’t Mitt Romney’s fault it is the fault of people who worked in the shadows of capitalism to make money out of the investment game. Lower middle class Americans have voted in their minds already. They like ObamaCare as it has been dubbed even if they won’t tell a pollster on their tracFone that they do.

Even now, the lovely and talented Mika Brzezinski and the erudite Joe Scarborough are shaking their heads at Romney trying to lead a “Romney Ryan!” cheer at a campaign stop. No one was cheering back. That’s because it is known that Romney doesn’t see America as being populated with people; he’s a human resources guy not a human beings guy. He hasn’t had the humanizing experience of having to come up from poverty and live outside of the US as anything other than an America citizen of privilege. Barack Obama, like him or not has been blessed with the ability because of his upbringing to meet people and talk to them as a living breathing Human being with a Soul. Mitt Romney isn’t connecting because when he meets a person he’s assessing their value to him.


In Hindsight

That is my take on why conservative bloggers are staying away from the economy; Romney’s wealth makes him an easy target for things like taxes so they dare not go there. Romney’s Internet surrogates would rather do the 1950s all over again conflating the anti-West uprisings in the Middle East with some foreign policy failure on Obama’s part. The news flash for Breitbart et al is that the people who would point and scream at this are already in the Romney fold. There are still roughly 7% of voters who haven’t made up their mind and many of them are in places like Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia; states that Romney currently trails in and must win to achieve the Oval Office. If Romney doesn’t change his tack and stop pandering to the white male bigots who hate Obama not based on policy but based on his race he will not only cost himself the White House but possibly cost his party the Senate and put the House back in play. If Romney does tack to the center, he will become the 21st century incarnation of a Republican Walter Mondale. The GOP will fracture by 2014 into an establishment party and those who will blame the establishment for not running conservative enough candidates. In this case a three party system will become a one party state in two election cycles. Democrats will own the House in perpetuity after the recovery of 2014 because TEA Party politics will demand a harder shift to the Right and that is a recipe for disaster for the unicorn of American politics–the Republican moderate.

MITT ROMNEY IS A POLITICAL AMATEUR; PASTOR TERRY JONES AND SAM BACILE SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE

An Internet video little seen in the United States, but promoted by Qu’ran burning Pastor Terry Jones, which depicts the Prophet Muhammad [qcpn!] as a paedophile, has sparked widespread violence in North Africa. The violence in Benghazi, Libya has lead to the death of United States Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens in a rocket propelled grenade attack. Yesterday being 11 September, was a political press embargo day for both GOP candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, out of respect for those who lost their lives in the terror attacks eleven years ago.

When the cause of the violence in Cairo and Benghazi became known The White House remained silent seeking to gain more details about the scaling of the embassy walls in Cairo and the armed violence in Benghazi. The United States Embassy in Cairo issued the following statement prior to the violence in an effort to defuse anger about the film:

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others

This statement was directed at Sam Bacile, a 52 year old Israeli-American real estate developer who wrote, filmed and produced the Muslim bashing film The Innocence of Muslims. However, the Romney campaign decided that this would be a golden opportunity, on 11 September a day of mourning for patritotic conservatives to attack the Obama administration for being “weak on Islam.” The Romney campaign issued this statement, which it states should have been held until 1 miniute after midnight this morning:

“It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

This of course is chateaubriand with a rasher of bacon to the far right who are already in the Romney camp. Romney’s advisors miscalculated horribly, which is what political amateurs do, because the above statement was issued before it was known the ambassador and three others had been killed. This is not a gaffe it is political incompetence on the part of the Romney campaign as it was released to attack President Obama on 11 September. Are you listening undecided American voter? These are the people who want to drown America in another war of choice, this time with Iran, with no clear exit strategy. Haven’t you seen that movie before?

The Obama campaign responded to the Romney campaign early this morning in the form of an e-mail sent by campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt:

“We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Gov. Romney would choose to launch a political attack.”

Sam Bacile, who is allegedly in hiding in fear of his life, has made no statements but Pastor Terry Jones vows to continue to press on and show clips of this obscure yet fatal film. This is the pastor’s right, but he has to keep in mind, in light of the events in Benghazi and Cairo that bigoted actions can have a brutal cost, globally, in the digital age. I would say that inciting people to riot and do violence is a crime and because of this Sam Bacile and Pastor Terry Jones are responsible by their incitement of those offended by this “film” and they both should be arrested and charged with depraved indifference. Both men sought this sort of violence and they sought fame in their communities for being so vehemently anti-Islam. They should now both reap what they have sown.

BREAKING NEWS: SYRIAN PRESIDENT’S BROTHER-IN-LAW ASSEF SHAWKAT CONFIRMED DEAD: آخر الاخبار: تأكيد شقيق الرئيس السوري في القانون آصف شوكت الميت

Posted in ARAB SPRING, BASHAR AL-ASSAD, BREAKING NEWS, SYRIAN CIVIL WAR with tags , , on 18/07/2012 by Majordomo Pain

وقد أكد الرئيس السابق للاستخبارات العسكرية السورية آصف شوكت العامة القتلى في دمشق من مصادر إبلاغ Hellac Pressju. كان متزوجا شوكت من بشرى شقيقة بشار الاسد بعد الهروب في عام 1995. وكان منصبه الحالي نائب وزير الدفاع، وقتل في الهجوم نفسه الذي أودى بحياة الكثير من أجهزة الأمن السورية صباح هذا اليوم. مستشفى تقارير الدول التي تم تحديدها من قبل شوكت بطاقته العسكرية لجثته في “العديد من القطع”.

Former head of Syrian military intelligence General Assef Shawkat had been confirmed dead in Damscus by sources reporting to Pressju Hellac. Shawkat was married to Bashar al-Assad’s sister Bushra after eloping in 1995. His current position was deputy minister of defence and was killed in the same attack that killed much of the Syrian security apparatus this morning.

Hospital reports state that Shawkat was identified by his military ID because his body was in “numerous pieces.”

JIM HOFT FAILS AGAIN THINKING DEMOCRACY MEANS “WHAT WHITE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVES WANT”

Posted in ARAB SPRING, BIGOTRY, BREAKING NEWS, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE NEWS, EGYPTIAN POLITICS, FASCISM, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT, JIM HOFT, POLITICS, PRESIDENT OBAMA, RACE AND POLITICS IN AMERICA, WHITE PRIVILEGE, ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE with tags , , , , on 24/06/2012 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

As you might know the Muslim Brotherhood’s favorite Mohamed Morsi has been declared the winner of the presidential election in Egypt. Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit infamy has seized on this event to take another swipe at President Barack Obama and froth up the base of white middle aged folks who still think the 44th is from Kenya and is a Muslim Manchurian Candidate.

In his post this morning Hoft notes that $200 million [h! 112516 d.37 s. 32] was earmarked to aid Egypt in its transition to democracy. The last time I checked the definition of democracy it read something like this, “a: government by the people; especially: rule of the majority b: a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.” Nowhere in either of those definitions did I see anything about democracy meaning the government elected by a majority has to be favorable to religious conservative white men in the US Midwest.

Hoft is upset that American tax dollars have been spent by the hogshead in an effort to bring democracy to Egypt and that Egypt actually got to choose their own government not what Hoft would have wanted a group that was opposed to what the majority actually desires. Now Hoft is big on saying in American issues that the majority [which he feels is conservative] is always right. When he doesn’t get the “confirms my worldview” result that he seeks he trots out his past post on the USAID monies spent as if Obama “wasted” $200 million to assure “Obama’s friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood came fully to power. Nowhere in that article was any mention made about the restrictions to Egyptian presidential power pushed through by the opposition military who supported a Mubarak aid in the plebiscite.


In Hindsight

Curiously, Hoft’s article appears to reflect the opinion of the white nationalist conservative group Council of Conservative Citizens which wrote similarly a week before Hoft made his post last winter. Hoft just changed the target from Hilary to the President. There’s nothing left to say about Hoft who had called the pro-Mubarak candidate a “crony” just yesterday as he reported that Ahmed Shafik would be declared president. I think Hoft should take a break and just allow Maria Millions, our In Hindsight girl for today, to post for him. His readership would go up and at least when she talked about politics she could do so without a fasher of ridiculous religious notions and ideological fog.

FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITORIAL PAGE EDITOR: THE CORRUPT SYRIAN GOVERNMENT OF BASHIR AL ASSAD MUST GO

Posted in ARAB SPRING, DIANE VALENCEN OPINIONS, FREEDOM, SYRIA, حرر سوريا! with tags , , , on 31/01/2012 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

For too long most of the Western world on Terran has turned a blind eye to the Syrian government’s use of force against the Syrian people. While American Conservatives wail on about Iran’s nuclear program dozens of people are being killed by troops loyal to Syrian President Bashir al Assad every day. The people of Homs and other cities have the right as Human Beings to protest the foul actions of their government and to demand freedom from persecution. It will take more than sanctions to help the Syrian people gain their freedom it will take the resolve of nations like Turkey and Saudi Arabia to do the heavy lifting by bombing the source of much of Syria’s troubles the army and its bases.

فترة طويلة جدا وتحولت معظم دول العالم الغربي على أرضي غضت الطرف عن استخدام الحكومة السورية للقوة ضد الشعب السوري. بينما المحافظون الأمريكية عويل على نحو عشرات برنامج ايران النووي من الناس يتعرضون للقتل على يد القوات الموالية لسوريا الاسد الرئيس البشير كل يوم. أهل حمص ومدن أخرى الحق كبشر في الاحتجاج على تصرفات حكومتهم كريهة وطلب الحرية من الاضطهاد. وسوف يستغرق الأمر أكثر من العقوبات لمساعدة الشعب السوري في الحصول على حريتهم سيستغرق عزم دول مثل تركيا والمملكة العربية السعودية للقيام برفع الثقيلة بقصف مصدر الكثير من المتاعب لسوريا والجيش وقواعدها.
