The Internet child of Matt Margolis and Mark Edward Noonan, BlogsforVictory, which began as BlogsforBush a digital apologist for the unjust war in Iraq, is down as of midnight last night. There is no explanation I can find except they didn’t update their account at GoDaddy.com. I am sure they will whip out a credit card and renew the blog and return to their opining about what’s wrong with Terra from an authoritarian conservative perspective. This blog has fought many wars with them especially socio-political ones. The fact that Noonan cannot bear to see the nude human image was likely the reason anyone who worked for The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork were banned from commenting there. If this is the end of BlogsforVictory I must admit a measure of sadness. Nothing made me happier than reading Noonan’s predictions of conservatives winning presidential elections only to see him have to eat his words on the following Wednesday. The hypocritical gut twisting the likes of Amazona, tiredoflibbs and Count d’Haricots were forced to engage in as the war in Iraq went south due to no WMDs being found. At the start of B4B back before the turn of the century conservatives likely thought they had a renaissance on their hands in the first decade of the new century. 9/11 reinforced that for them. Then the grand social pendulum started to swing toward the Progressives. Same sex marriage and abortion rights are still law in America even though the latter has seen states chip away at a woman’s right to choose. Over the last six years the two electoral victories of President Barack Hussein Obama has lit the fuse to the bomb that will eventually blow up the GOP and fracture the Right irreparably for at least a generation. BlogsforVictory, and blogs like them that required conservative ideological purity, have been more responsible for the coming demise of the GOP than any action by President Obama, Progressive elected officials or even Liberal bloggers like me. Maybe Noonan and his fellow travelers in theocratic conservative authoritarianism will rally behind a single candidate that they wish to see elected the nominee in 2016. Palin isn’t a favorite for Noonan; nor is Dr Ben Carson but I could see a BlogsforCruz2016 rising from the ashes of B4V in the coming months filled with the same improbable enthusiasm that they had for McCain and Romney over the last two election cycles. If there is one thing I can give them credit for after so many poor predictions is that they are consistent in their blind belief that they are the majority in the face of proof to the contrary.

THE NIXON WAS MORE POPULAR THAN OBAMA FALLACY

Posted in BLOGS 4 VICTORY, CONSERVATIVE LIES, CONSERVATIVE NEWS, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT with tags , on 14/11/2013 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

I just got done reading the latest piece of misinformation from Blogs4Victory written by Matt Margolis who I now consider officially an idiot. He writes:

Am I surprised? Not really, Obama overall has done far worse than Nixon, and frankly, the fact Obama’s approval ratings, as dismal as they might be, are as high as they are, is shocking to me.

Margolis clearly doesn’t know anything about politics, history or polling. In 1973, as the creeping reality of defeat in Vietnam was taking hold in the minds of even the most die-hard conservatives in America the need to support their man in the White House became a serious priority. Sound familiar? It happened to George W Bush as well and he plummeted to the third worst President by approval rating in the last seventy years. But as much as the far Right wants me to make this about their embarrassment with their being suckered into thinking that Bush was actually a conservative this is actually about being smart enough to run the numbers and do your journalistic due diligence.

Now I’d be the first to admit I’ve blow stories by wanting to rush to press with a hot tip or a piece of gossip related to a Mylie Cyrus nipple slip that turned out to be utterly incorrect. Mercifully, I’ve caught most of these stories before going to press. This blog has had to retract a story only three times since 28 August 2005 and covering more than 2,500 blog posts. Margolis while he never retracts clearly doesn’t have the integrity to search for ten minutes for the truth because it doesn’t support his political view. In the article he pasted into his post was the hook that Obama is less popular than the worst GOP president of all time Richard M. Nixon.

The reality of this could be found with the same five minutes of searching that I did at Gallup.com. There you can compare presidential approval in many fun and eye opening ways. It isn’t that Margolis swallows the hook and then vomits back TEA Party talking points the real tragedy is that Matt Margolis linked to an article from the Examiner and then took out only the reddest meat to sling at the mouth breathers on the far Right.

Here’s the part of the Examiner article written by Darren Pope of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that I have the most problem with and should have sent a red flag up to any journalist worth his salt:

To put the numbers in historical context, compare Obama’s approval rating to that of former-President Richard Nixon. In June of 1972, when the Watergate story first broke, Nixon had an approval rating in the high 50s, and six months later it was even higher, rising to 67% in Jan. of 1973. Nixon denied any knowledge of the scandal, a strategy President Obama has employed each time a new scandal has arisen. Nixon was seen as “above the fray” and blameless by his supporters, much like Obama seems to be now.

hindsight 2057
In Hindsight
Apples, meet oranges. Nixon and Obama have only one thing in common. They are both two term presidents. Go back to the Gallup presidential approval comparison site and do what I did. Look at Obama’s approval rating now in his second term as compared to Nixon in November of 1973. On the 2-5 November 1973 poll Nixon’s approval rating was 27%; Obama currently is at 41%. So exactly how is Obama less popular a president than Nixon? Only in the fetid minds of TEA Party conservatives.

Pax Terra!

NEOCON1 LIKE MANY JAPANESE SOLDIERS AFTER WW2 DOESN’T KNOW THAT THE WAR IS OVER AND THAT HE HAS LOST

I have to admit that I admire Neocon1 for something. No matter how many times it’s pointed out to him that his sources are flawed if the information that he sees makes the case for his worldview, disparages, minorities or insults President Obama, he’ll post it. To have that sense of blind ambition is something that may serve him well here in Hell. Here’s his latest comical screed posted at Blogs4Victory:

The Communist Takeover Of
America – 45 Declared Goals
From Greg Swank

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

I know, the smart kids in the room are rolling their eyes because they know where this is going to end. bear with me for a moment folks while I fill everyone else in on what’s happened here. The comment comes from a post made by Greg Swank at rense.com on 4 December 2002. That post is entitled “The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals” and details an alleged reading into the Congressional Record in 1963 by Florida Represetative A.S. Herlong Jr. the declared goals of global Communism. He got these goals sent to him by a Florida citizen, newspaper publisher and devout anti-Communist named Patricia Nordman of DeLand, Florida. I have put several staff on searching for this newspaper both here in Dis and in Florida and no existence of such a newspaper has been recovered. Also, there is nothing that I can find from the Congressional Record of the 88th Congress to support that this was ever read into the record.

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

These “Communist goals” have been touted at one point by Glenn Beck, but curiously that link has been broken and the record of it being posted only appears in the archives. The origin of this list [shown in full above] is from a book written in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen called The Naked Communist. Likie much of Skousen’s works this list was a reaction to the very beginning of the decline of White Privilege in America. The far Right elements of American Conservatism have latched on to this list as “proof” that Communism is taking over America. This is important to document because it tells us something about the nature of the far Right in America today.

The people that are shouting at the top of their lungs from the Right about Obama being a Socialist and that Communists are everywhere in government, in schools and in churches come from a generation when the biggest baddest thing that could destroy their way of life was that demon called Communism. In thirty years, bigots newly minted in the fearful lustrum of years following the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers in New York City will be doing the same in regard to apostate Islamic terrorism even if like Communism the threat no longer exists. Neocon1 is a child of the middle of the last century. He went to war in Vietnam because the old white men in power at the time told him to go to war. He returned to a country severely divided not only on the war, but on women’s rights, gay rights, civil rights for minorities, what to do about the poor and a myriad of other social issues. Today Neocon1 still cannot let go of that struggle that defined him in the time when he came of age. Communism is a safe word for him to use to vent his anger when really what he wants to say is, Why is the color of my skin no longer a key that opens all doors?”

The world, the America, of Neocon1’s youth is dead and America is better off for it. Everyday another lobe of the cancer that is conservatism is snipped away, not by a Communist plot, but by cooler, more rational heads both within and outside of government. In less than 100 years America has transformed from a nation that would have suited Bill Logan Sr [aka Neocon1] very well where a man because of the color of his skin could murder a man in his own front yard, leaving him to bleed to death in the arms of his wife, and walk free for decades, into a nation where a simple disparaging comment against a person of color is generally met with a measure of brutal disdain both civilly and economically. And yet there is still much more Progress to be made.
