I puzzled over the word that should end the title for so long that I’ll leave the answer up to you, the reader. Watching events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri has taught me a very valuable lesson over the last week. That lesson is that I cannot understand the situation unless I was actually there. I can draw parallels to many of the missteps taken in the small community to the kidnapping last week of two Amish girls in upstate New York.

Errors are constantly made in situations where a person is confronted with violent crime. The need to make a victim of a crime, as I still believe Michael brown was, appear perfect by his family and horribly flawed to the point of deserving the consequences of their victimhood by others is chief among those errors. Michael Brown, clearly wasn’t a saint, but who among you there on Terra or I here in Hell is? There was something written in a great book about casting the first stone that applies to everyone. There was the narrative of a good kid who was going to college which furled the outrage among progressive bloggers and tweeters which was rekindled by the gleeful “I told you so” chorus from those on the Right after the videotape was released of Brown stealing cigars and shoving a store owner as he and his accomplice fled.

As I watched the video, which matched what we here know happened in the final minutes of Michael Brown’s life, in the conference room with my editor-in-chief, Cavalor Epthith and editorial page editor Diane Valencen, I wondered out loud just what was the purpose of releasing that video. As it stands in 2014 in the United States of America is it simply okay for law enforcement to kill a person because they walked down the street? And if not is it acceptable for the police to release previous actions of the victim to engender sympathy by creating a “thuggish” persona around him or her?

Colorado-Shooter-Poster

These questions bother me because it goes back to the way Americans today deal with the everyday effects that crime and death have on thousands of Americans every day. I saw on Twitter a link to a story that showed how the Aurora, Colorado theater shooter was portrayed the first time the media showed a picture of him. He looked like any other geeky white kid. The first photo I saw of Mike Brown looked terribly imposing. Double standard? I would have to say so.

081614amish

And this finally brings me to the two little Amish girls in New York state. I am glad they are home again with their family. I read where the parents have forgiven their kidnappers and I have also learned where the girls were tragically sexually abused during their 23 hour ordeal. The mother of the 12 and 7 year old said that while she was glad to have her girls back things are not the same as they were. But if these parents who have had their little girls’ lives brutally changed forever have not lost their faith why is it so easy for the the citizens of Ferguson to be vilified for being so frustrated that their native son? To understand how I am looking at this now you have a question to answer. What would your reaction be if the Progressive blogosphere were calling the two girls little whores who really wanted to go off on a sexual escapade in a car with two strangers? Yes, even for me to say such a thing would be pretty shocking. In the end that’s what the conservatives have done with the Mike Brown case over and over again.

hindsight 2326
In Hindsight
Even now, having read to this point the conservatives that come here are saying to themselves, well the Amish didn’t burn their town to the ground or target every car they saw driving by until their girls were returned. That is almost a fair analysis if you value property over people and lucre over life. And here we go again that sentence will turn every conservative mind to the “holocaust of abortion.” And so it goes in 2014 in America the time you have all been waiting for when the tipping point in society was passed and you see the face of who cause the eventual decline into chaos. It is going to be surprising when conservatives see not Rush Limbaugh looking back at them or even some conservative gun loving Oathkeeper who has assassinated a prominent politician. No that person is you right wing “law and order” fanatic. This is your failure and the solution to the problem that has gripped America for the past thirty years, yes another question, “What happens when the peace is breached in an age when the police have the equipment of the military but not the training to deal with a frustrated American public?” Every 2nd amendment and New Testament clinging TEA Party freak ought to be at the barricades with the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, but of course to those bitter clingers this cause is not their cause as Cliven Bundy’s was for reasons to them that are as plain as the nose on your face.

TUFFY GESSLING A SYMPTOM OF THE CANCER THAT IS THE TEA PARTY

Posted in CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE, CONSERVATIVE LIES, CONSERVATIVE NEWS, CONSERVATIVE STUPID EMAIL FORWARDS, CRAZY MISSOURI, TUFFY GESSLING with tags , , , , , on 16/08/2013 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fred_schwartz_4

Before I go on with this post, my first since coming back from vacation, let me say this. I have no knowledge that Tuffy Gessling is a member of the TEA Party. The point I am making here, very briefly, this morning is that the actions of Tuffy Gessling are the actions of the right wing conservative base that has hijacked the GOP. Those responsible for the decline and eventual fall of the GOP are not Progressives, they are in fact the people cheering Tuffy Gessling as he asks the crowd at the Missouri State Fair if they wanted to see Obama get run down by a bull. The conservative base of the GOP, like Tuffy Gessling has gone rogue. Like the coup conspirators in Moscow two decades ago, these right wing religious and gun loving zealots do not realize that history itself has passed them by. All they know is they want the world of their childhood in the 1950s or early 60s back and all the djinnis of the post Culture War circa 1969 back in their collective bottles.

Conservatives are now howling that the other presidents, Republican presidents have been mocked this way in the past. Okay, I’ll grant them that. Bush II was vilified by me but not simply for his race, but for his policies. In forty years when many of the far right TEA Party types are dead and here in Hell with me wondering what went wrong, the Living will be enjoying the benefits of of the Ledbetter Act, ObamaCare and the Stimulus which from all I’ve seen saved America from devolving into a Great Depression.

hindsight 2246
In Hindsight

The biggest victims of this debacle in Missouri are moderate conservative voters in Missouri and the national GOP leadership who, once again, have a stain to deal with coming out of Missouri. As if Todd Akin wasn’t enough now you have Tuffy Gessling to run against in 2014. I don’t expect that the disrespect and bigotry will simply come to an end when Hillary Clinton is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States in January 2017. No for the TEA Party types in the flyover districts that would simply be too easy. What will happen is there will be a shift away from the hardening racial bigotry of the present for a new and odious misogyny of such a destructive force that the GOP in its current state can no longer survive.

When I took this job as a writer about Culture War issues seven Terran years ago I never thought I would end up doing so much political writing. That is likely because I’m a Liberal and social issues to me are personal choices that people make not planks in a political platform. Offering people choice is not destroying anyone’s “way of life” yet a vocal minority forcing people to conform to outdated values, that they themselves treat like used toilet paper, clearly is.

Clint_Eastwood_-_Hang_Them_High

Karl Rove the master puppeteer of the George W Bush White House is now working for American Crossroads and has begun the great purge that will eventually reduce the GOP to a regional party. If the GOP jettisons its TEA Party elements this near permanent minority opposition will begin to move the party to the center and allow it to return to what it was in the pre-Nixon era of the 1960s when a moderate Republican was less rare than a unicorn. The goal for Rove is a difficult one to achieve; he must keep as many conservatives as possible within the party while assuring the loosest of cannons are cast a drift. Cut too deep and you will have a mass exodus of the bigots and the religious zealots who the GOP have depended on since 2000 to stave off irrelevancy.

Now enter Ashley Judd into the 2014 Senate race in Kentucky. Rand Paul is already in the Senate for that state and their likely isn’t much time left on Mitch McConnell’s dance card [how McConnell has survived being the only gay GOP Senator for this long has puzzled me for a decade and a half.]. There’s very little legitimate opposition for an intelligent woman with the financial backing like Judd would have. The ad above is running now because it is known that in Kentucky the Democrats have a voter registration advantage and that McConnell’s star is fading. But after the horrible failure of TEA Party fabvorites like Todd Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana the last thing Rove and his GOP Establishment fat cats want to see is someone with diarrhea of the mouth taking on a beloved movie star. The terror for McConnell is so great that he has embraced the TEA Party in an effort to keep from being primaried in 2014. While in our polling Judd beats McConnell 52 to 48; Judd trounces the TEA Party favorite Rep. Thomas Massie 62-37.

alice tea party

And it is by being primaried that the GOP will be cut to ribbons. I can save the GOP right now with a simple explanation. Stop forcing candidates, incumbents, that can win and represent you well on 70% of your values issues out of races in the primaries simply because they have made a statement in defense of gay marriage, or have agreed with Obama on some issue or feel that a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion. America has more serious business than the settled issue of a woman’s right to choose. That battle is lost–move on. It is too late to appeal to minorities that ship has sailed because in the next ten presidential election years that minority as a group will be the majority, the voting majority. In that same forty years, by the year 2052, the base of 55 to 90 year old white men and women who remember back to a time when none of what has taken place in the last 13 years [a destructive terror attack on a major US city, a state legalizing gay marriage, a state legalizing marijuana, a black man being elected President, the Red Sox winning the World Series . . .] appeared possible outside of a Hollywood production will be dead or of such a small number that the Right will be more adequately described as the Center.

Rove has thrown a few spitballs at the TEA Party over the past few weeks and this is absolutely necessary. When he’s gone and I mean by the 2052 election what will the face of the establishment GOP look like? If there is a GOP it will have to look more like Marco Rubio and sound nothing like Allen West or Michele Bachmann to have survived. Either way for us this is a win win. If the GOP becomes a small but more centrist party this is the best outcome for America. If the TEA Party becomes the third party we see rising out of the ashes of a 2014 shellacking by the Democrats that gives them the Liberals the House and the Senate for Obama’s last two years then you have at least thirty years of uninterrupted Democratic Party Presidents. Keep in mind in the first half of this forty years Rush Limbaugh the last great voice for conservative ignorance and fear will too be dead [Limbaugh is currently 62 years old.–F.S.] and when that voice is silent the game will be over for the Right as it exists today.

THE REAL DAMAGE OF OF TODD AKIN’S BELIEFS

[Journ.]

I’ve heard many times that politics is a very dangerous game. What you’ve got in America today isn’t really politics anymore it’s a bunch of kindergarten kids throwing their feces at each other and pointing. Americans need jobs and there are two sides who very likely have ideas of how to get corporations to get off their money and begin to hire people to do things but you won’t get to those solutions before election day because of issues that the Right feel are more important.

Abortion, sexuality and the struggle to get women out of the boardroom and back into the kitchen working to serve working men, these are legacy issues for the far Right and their enablers in powerful positions. Yes, I mean the Koch Brothers when I say powerful enablers and I clarify this because I don’t want anyone to think I misspoke. These people and those who share their beliefs are horrified that everyone else doesn’t see that they’ve got all the answers to a better life and a post life reward. Men like Todd Akin are appalled that their beliefs are things that have to be parsed and watered down as not to alienate those moderates and independents out there who get to vote.

Todd Akin is an educated man who got a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and another in theology Covenant Theological Seminary in 1984 at the age of 37. This shows where this man’s thinking and loyalty lies. Akin is a man about processes and the solutions that can come from processes. He is also a man very devout about religion and devout about making his religion’s social norms prominent is American culture. Todd Akin is a well trained and well groomed officer for the Right in the culture war.

It would have been better for the GOP had Akin gotten out of the Missouri Senate race, but it wouldn’t change what I think is obvious but many in the MSM has missed. Todd Akin believes, because of his religous beliefs that life begins at conception– when egg meets sperm and the resulting new form divided and divides yet again. I am sure that Mr Akin understands how human beings procreate, however, he doesn’t know anything about being a woman anymore than I do. What’s missing is that Akin doesn’t have any compassion for people that goes beyond what his religious beliefs that color his stance on the issue of abortion–which simply put is a woman’s right to choose if she carries a fetus to term; he is simply tethered to the ground by the obsession of people like him to take America back to a time when the nation was more racially, sexually and socially more comfortable to them.

And by choosing not to excise this cancer from their body the group of people who are Republican are committing suicide politically. I feel that Akin’s views could have been betyter expressed by him had he said, “I do not support abortion under any circumstances save for a direct threat to the continued life and health of the mother.” Period. End of discussion. Next question. many sitting GOP members of Congress feel this way including Paul Ryan who is the Vice presidential choice of Mitt Romney. Had he said this we wouldn’t be talking about this today because that position is well known to be held by Akin, Ryan and dozens of others in the GOP and even some Democrats.

Abortion is an issue in this election cycle because it is the chief culture war issue for the GOP base. They can’t roll back the Civil Rights Act and despite their best efforts to control minority voting with new voter identification laws in several states, they can’t do away with the Voting Rights Act. Conservatives are doubling down yet again in their GOP party platform by echoing Todd Akin’s beliefs which are Paul Ryan’s beliefs that abortion in the case of rape or incest should not be legal. All eye rolling aside this is the dying gasp issue for the far Right in 2012. The Right knows that this might be the last hurrah for them and their ageing base. In the next 20 years the numbers of pro-life young people with deep motivations to organize like Gingi Edmonds for example will be in decline while the numbers of Latino and black teens who will be voting for the first time in 2032 will outnumber conservatives by a factor of 16 to 1. So the goal today with less than 80 days to go to the election is to win and gain control of the Congress and the White House and attempt to rewrite the laws to take America back to that place that is socially comfortable for conservatives once again.


In Hindsight

I’m a betting man. Back a few months ago I saw clearly that Mitt Romney because of the economic sluggishness in the US would likely win the presidential election. All the indicators were there and to me it seemed President Obama would not be able to get to 270 electoral votes no matter how I sliced and diced the numbers. In politics all you have to do is wait a while as I did in 2006 when I found myself writing a similar column about George Allen who was running for Senate and made the infamous “macaca” comment on a warm August afternoon. That gaffe six years ago almost to the day was the first of several shoes that dropped which showed the harshness and intolerance of conservatives to an electorate that was sick and tired of the war in Iraq. Now as the 2,000th life has been lost in the war in Afghanistan, the GOP has a full blown abortion obsessed rogue on it’s hands in Missouri that will cost them not only the Senate, the White House and possibly the House, but also will cost the Grand Old Party its very future existence. You hear it here first folks, the GOP will not exist as a national party in 20 years.

I know politicians are trained not to speak what’s really in their hearts so they don’t alienate certain blocs of voters in the coming elections. The problem with America today is two fold. First members of the US Congress are constantly running for office. Second, the average voter is terribly ill informed. This blog can nothing about the former but we can do something about the latter.

Yesterday on KTVI in an interview with Charles Jaco, Rep Todd Akin [R] MO-2 made the following statement about rape:

“Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

Here is the video from the Jaco Report:

As horrifying as Congressman Akin’s comment on “the fmeale body” having ways of “shutting down” conception due to rape are there is more to this statement from a man who loves his religion, of which he has no proof beyond his own belief, more than he cares for the rights of the female citizens of the State of Missouri. What I take from this is the pure lack of compassion for intelligent debate about an issue that has been in the forefront of American politics since Roe v Wade. The simple answer to this question from an intelligent person, one who was legitimately qualified to be a representative of the citizens of a state, would be “Yes, a woman who has been raped should be able to receive an abortion.” But this answer would not get you 97% ratings from the American Conbservative Union or a 100% rating from the Family Research Council. Once again old white men with arcane ideals are trying to “put women back in their place.”

I understand that Akin said these remarks were off the cuff and he has walked the comments back in a press release. That’s not enough, nor do I feel that this man who graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary in 1984 really made these remarks from anywhere near his cuff. These are his heartfelt beliefs based not on law but on his faith. Akin’s faith has no place in government when he uses it to force a victim of a crime to bear the burden of someone else’s violence to such an exponential degree as having to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. Conservatives are always howling about living under the Constitution, however they choose when it suits them, much like how they buffet style the Bible, to live by separate rules that will assure them power over women, minorities, and the GLBTQ community. In this case they are sacrificing all women to their deity who in their eyes must see women as such a threat, and equally must see the decline in white births as such a threat, that they would openly go this far in trying to keep American women barefoot and pregnant even if that pregnancy was the result of force.

Conservative blogger Erick Erickson at Red Statehas tried this morning to make the statements of Todd Akin simply a “dumb statement” while pointing to lies told by the Right like the one by Rick Santorum during the GOP primaries that President Obama was in favor of infanticide. So even Erick Erickson is defending Todd Akin by attacking the President. What a house of mirrors politics has become in the US of A when a lie by a Republican running for office can be used to make the truth spoken by another Republican seem better. As if that’s not enough he even brings up Chappaquiddick to make his dog whistle even louder.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit couldn’t even go near the issue of Akin’s comments depsite his 13th century Catholic views on abortion. He chose to make it clear how much Claire McCaskill is in favor of abortion. Hoft chose Whoopi Goldberg as his beard for Akin’s comments.

America you have a clear choice between Conservative Dominionism and Progressive Freedom and you have 81 days to decide. There can be in my mind no going back to the days of white power, or male hegemony and racial lines determining a child’s future or a woman’s reproductive rights. Be informed, be connected and be at the polls this November.

BREAD & CIRCUSES: WILLIAM KING, DAMIAN MCELRATH, TAMECA BRYANT,CLIFFORD B. MILLER

Posted in AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, Bread & Circuses, CRAZY MISSOURI, METH BUST BLOTTER, MURDER, MURDER SUICIDE, ROBIN NAISMITH GREEN OPINIONS with tags , , on 17/07/2012 by Robin Naismith Green

William King of Elyria, Ohio committed suicide by cop on 15 July 2012 by calling 911 and stating that he’d shot his wife Donna King and claiming that he was going to kill himself. Donna King was at a local festival and heard about the standoff that was taking place between her husband and police and called 911 and explained she was not in the home. King, who was dying of liver failure, exited the home pointing a gun at his head and then aimed it at officers. It was then that he was shot seven times in the chest causing his death hours later.

Damian McElrath, 18, of Marietta, Georgia is being held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond facing charges of the aggravated assault and murder by stabbing of his mother Diane McElrath, 58. Mc Elrath had been arrested on 2 December 2011 for breaking into a display case and stealing four iPads at a Target in Dallas, Georgia. A year before he had been found in possession of a controlled substance during a fight at an alternative school he was attending.

Tameca Michelle Bryant, 23, of Senath, Missouri has admitted to law enforcement that she beat her two year old son with a 12 inch cast iron skillet last month. The boy suffered a severe skull fracture and a broken left arm from the attack with the ten pound skillet. Bryant is charged with three counts of assault as well as child abuse and endangerment and is being held on $100,000 bond at the Dunklin County Jail.


Clifford B. Miller, 31, has been arrested at his girlfriend’s residence in Parkville, Missouri and charged in the murders of sisters Ashley Key, 22 and Briny Haarup 19. Miller had planned to rape Haarup at her home after getting high on meth but found Key alseep on the sofa and beat her unconscious with his fists and then smothered her to death. Finding Haarup in the home’s bedroom he beat her with a stick and then smothered her. Miller it is stated in police reports tried to have sex with Haarup’s corpse but he could not gain an erection. Miller located and stole four firearms and sold one and left Haarup’s two children aged six months and eighteen months alone. The alleged murderer then moved both bodies wrapped in bedsheets to the 19-year-old woman’s truck and dumped them in the woods. Miller confessed he never had a relationship with haarup but he, “found her sttractive and eanted to have sex with her.” it is still unknown how he knew Briny Haarup.
