Unlike the extremely secretive AIPAC gathering last week in DC, there has been tons of coverage of the CPAC meeting. It is interesting watching the GOP right wing figure out how to win elections. Obviously, attacking women, gays and minorities seems to still be their game plan. Governor Walker: Republicans Should Focus on Shared Beliefs which is what? Can’t be balancing the budget, they never do this when in power. Can’t be civil rights, they want Israeli-style religious bigot privileges. So what are they thinking?
The internet made fun of the CPAC people when a black man, paid great sums to toady to mainly whites, led a discussion about the Civil War and abolitionist. This poor man stood idly at the podium as a cheeky right wing youth claimed that slavery was feeding and housing people ‘for free’. Now with this blasting across the internet, the leaders of that organization is striking back: Tea Party blames unruly CPAC racism panel on African-American woman reporter.
HAHAHA…a two-fer-one! The person who was naughty wasn’t the rank racists and their sock puppet black dude. It was the uppity, pesky, noisy, not learning her place as a servant black bitch! Yes, she was the Evil One who made life hell for these dainty right wingers. How dare she, a reporter, ask questions. It actually is ‘How dare she be a reporter.’
One of the best news services for learning about the US internally is to watch News — RT on the internet. Like Al Jazeera, it is not allowed on cable in much of the US. Of course, it was a Russian organization hiring an American reporter to cover the real news, none of the US mainstream media bothered to cover this news. An older man wearing Tea Party colonial garb loudly attacked the reporter verbally and then stormed off (perhaps to Stormfront – White Nationalist Community).
This odd meeting also has a thing about healthy food. It shows up over and over again. The leaders and top pundits in CPAC make fun of healthy eating and openly encourage their followers to eat junk food. They also hate Bloomberg, the mayor of NYC. Bloomberg was a Democrat until 9/11 then turned GOP and then turned independent once the GOP lost its bloom. Here is the biggest loser, Palin, making fun of Bloomberg and Michael Obama: Gulp, Sarah’s back! Palin stuns CPAC audience with a barrage of jokes about President Obama and the New York City soda ban | Mail Online
The ex-governor came onstage armed with a huge 7-Eleven Big Gulp cup to poke fun at the mayor’s proposal to outlaw 32-ounce soda containers, even though this particular soft drink brand was excluded from the ban.
‘Bloomberg’s not around,’ Palin said with mischievous smile after taking a sip from the plastic cup. ‘One Big Gulp’s safe.’
Palin is either a bulimic who throws up after eating or she drank a colored drink with no corn syrup in it. She was cheered while doing this stupid stunt. Here is the CDC obesity map:
In general, the more a state trends towards the GOP, the fatter the populace is. So all this making fun of attempts at stopping suicidal gorging is playing up to an audience that loves to eat foods that are unhealthy. Note that Colorado, a state trending towards the Democratic side, is the least obese. We all have a problem with our diets and we tend to eat badly because it is cheap and easy. But it is the Tea Party that celebrates bad eating habits which tells a lot about their ideals and goals.
And then end up on food stamps because they can’t finish school and can’t earn enough money with a high school education.
The other bulimic/anorexic GOP female hero, Ann Coulter did the same thing at CPAC: Pundit Tells Chris Christie Weight Joke, Calls Bill Clinton ‘Forcible Rapist’. The GOP has many problems with rape. If a GOP supporter rapes someone, it isn’t rape unless the woman fights back and gets nearly killed or killed and if she gets pregnant, she is a hussy who wanted secretly to get pregnant and thus cannot abort a fetus.
Michigan’s Anti-Abortion Bill Is The Nation’s Worst which was passed by a gerrymandered legislature which, for some reason, hates women with out of wedlock children going on welfare but also wants to force women to have these very same pesky babies. This is part of the War on Women’s Rights which the right wing along with the Catholic Church leaders and the Mormons and fundamentalist Jewish sects are pushing so hard. The rightwinger GOP in North Dakota approved the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation banning terminations after six weeks, for genetic defects or even in cases of rape which doesn’t surprise me. The Vatican agrees with this bill.
Here is another example of how adamant the right wing is to make things as inhumanly bad as possible: Mississippi passes ‘anti-Bloomberg bill,’ banning local limits on portion sizes and requirements to post calorie counts. Virtually the fattest state in the nation is Mississippi. I grew up in the south when a child before homes had air conditioning. It was impossible to gorge on Palin’s cookies or drink very sugary stuff when it is hot and humid.
I always lost weight in summer and put in on in winter and this is the natural human Ice Age cycle. But if one lives in air conditioned situations, it is always ‘fall’ and never summer and the body demands to be fed nonstop. And in winter we don’t burn the fat because we are too warm so it seems like summer. Except in the deep south there is little winter so it is perpetual fall as far as the body thinks.
Corporate America loves the GOP and the attacks on posting calorie content and healthy eating is cheered on by organizations funding the GOP like McDonald’s: Be careful with that Shamrock Shake! McDonald’s St. Patrick’s Day treat is equivalent to eating one and a half hamburgers!
I saw the TV ad for this terrible drink. A very skinny LA actor male is accosted by his anorexic/bulimic wife when she demands, ‘You drank all the Patty’s Day McDonald’s shake!’ And he laughs and produces this thing topped by fake whipped cream since it isn’t cream. I went to the corporate main page to look up facts about these toxic, fattening drinks: Great Shakes For Goodness’ Sake :: AboutMcDonalds.com tells us that the corporation spends TWENTY CENTS per drink. So they obviously use cheap substitutes for real food. I tried to find out what exactly were the ingredients but couldn’t find it at the corporate site.
The only link I did find to the corporate site which has the ingredients was ‘Page Not Found’.
At the GOP convention, Bush AG tells CPAC: “The vast majority” of Muslims want to impose Sharia law which is schizoid since the GOP wants to do exactly that only the Sharia is from the foreigners in the Vatican and our home-grown Protestant and Mormons wishing to ape the Sharia guys overseas.
The US Assassination Nation continues with both parties happily murdering civilians: CIA Sizing Up Islamists in Syria for Drone Strikes. On behalf of al Qaeda fighters there, I presume. A return to ‘pre-US invasion’ CIA activities in Afghanistan which created al Qaeda.
And despite all the warmongering boasts about winning wars, the Afghan Clerics Call on US to Obey Karzai and leave their country. I thank them for trying their best to push our imperial forces out. I wish these soldiers were brought back home but alas, they will merely be sent to South Korea and Japan to fight the dangerous Chinese.
The GOP demanded austerity cuts and the Pentagon won’t cut their trillion dollar AF-35 so instead of hurting all their Daddy Warbucks gang in the Pentagon, the Air Force joins other military branches in suspending college tuition assistance program instead. Hit the soldiers where it hurts the most! So much for right wing patriotism.
Here is more news from the CPAC convention: Fed’s Fisher Says Too-Big-to-Fail Banks Should Be Shrunk – Bloomberg
Fisher said today in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. The biggest banks enjoy a “significant” subsidy, enabling them “to grow larger and riskier,” he said.
Whoa! Why didn’t Fisher also demand offshore banking be stopped because it is bleeding our nation of much-needed capital? At least he was anti-big bank. Is he also anti-derivative interest rate swaps?
CPAC continues the War on Women and the Vatican fully supports and cheers this onwards: Special report: The damning documents that show new Pope DID betray tortured priests to the junta | Mail Online
Special report: The damning documents that show new Pope DID betray tortured priests to the juntaOne of the documents is a 27-page report by Orlando Yorio, one of the kidnapped priests, in which he accuses the current pontiff of secretly spreading dangerous rumours about him and a colleague while personally promising them support and protection.
A second document is a confidential government memo written in 1979 which appears to reveal Bergoglio informed junta officials that Father Yorio and Father Francisco Jalics were suspected of collaborating with guerrillas and that Jalics was accused of encouraging dissent among a congregation of nuns.
This fake St. Francis had the Vatican issue loud denials of his dirty deeds but the news is quickly leaking out. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing just like the previous two guys. No surprise to me. Look at who is voting! All right wing males who hate women and are closet sex fiends who also hate gays for coming out of the closet.
And now for the last GOP hypocrite in today’s news from my own neighborhood: N.Y. assemblyman ticketed for marijuana, speeding Katz, a right wing Zionist Republican voted against legalizing pot. Yes, he voted to keep it illegal. Recently, the Democrats began to legalize it in the teeth of Mr. Katz and his buddies strong objections so Katz wasn’t thrown in prison, he got a ticket instead. Typical: closet illegal drug users who hammer the lower classes when they get caught while indulging, themselves. Do they have no sense of shame or guilt?
