The Audacity of Shamelessness: Obama Pretends to Care About Military Suicides

Empathy-challenged (war criminal) Obama is pretending he cares about military suicides.

I waited a few days to write this to see if my intensely bitter reaction to Obama's last week’s press conference would subside. It has not. In fact reading about the pride some progressives feel about Obama’s shamelessly hypocritical grandstanding sickens me even further.

One of the reasons slot machines in Vegas have so much power to keep you engaged is that just when you’re ready to surrender to the reality of your no-win misery a few coins drop down the slot and you unwisely stay engaged rather than cut your losses and leave. Read below the fold...

Axelrod Destroyed the Democratic Party in Order to Save It -- Destroyed Democracy for Ego and Gamesmanship

Boy, you just can’t make this stuff up.

Weiner exhibiting his “package” via email.

Thank you, Anthony. Exhibit A. That just about sums up what the ruling patriarchy is all about. Power and competition and the biggest “package” whether of a person, a party, a nation or nations. The killer drones, by the way, seem to slide very easily into the abundance of phallic imagery penetrating the public through the addicted-to-titillation, disinforming, amoral media these days.

The alleged molestation by DSK is another one of those awesome, you can’t make these perfect metaphors up, of the IMF’s will to rape Africa, Africa represented by a vulnerable and working class African woman. Read below the fold...

Obama’s Personal and Political Betrayal of ‘Brother’ Cornel West

(539 Obama-dumping days until 2012 election-Hugh's Obama's Scandals List)

Chris Hedges recently interviewed Cornel West in The Obama Deception: Why Cornel West Went Ballistic about his personal and political experiences with Obama. West is described by Hedges as “the Class of 1943 University Professor of African American Studies and Religion at Princeton University.”

Hedges launches his West-Obama narrative as follows: Read below the fold...

Now NY Guv Cuomo Declares War on Brain-Damaged Babies (I kid you not!)

Some politicians kiss babies to posture their likability and trustworthiness.

Other politicians, like NY’s new Governor Andrew Cuomo, will rob them, infant victims of medical malpractice, of necessary, minimal, long-term medical coverage.

Cuomo wants to put a $250,000 lifetime cap on medical compensation for brain injury to a child caused by medical malpractice. This may sound like a lot of money, but in the course of a lifetime, medical bills being what they are and what they will undoubtedly climb to, it is very likely far from adequate.

Green Party Calls for State Lawmakers to Reject Cuomo's Austerity Budget -- A Green New Deal would invest in jobs, education, fair taxes

Green Party of NY State leaders today called Gov. Andrew Cuomo's budget an attack on working and middle class New Yorkers that should be rejected by state lawmakers.

Don’t Turn Your Back on Hillary Clinton or How Ray McGovern Evoked Hypocrisy in Real Time

71-year old peace advocate Ray McGovern, wearing a Veterans for Peace T-shirt, stood in the audience with his back toward Hillary Clinton as she gave a speech at Washington University on February 15th. McGovern’s stance, what he calls “silent witness”, was a protest of Mrs. Clinton’s support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It was not long before McGovern was assaulted and dragged out of the audience by two security men. “So this is America!” McGovern declared. “This is America!” Read below the fold...

Fairy Tales of the SOTU Related to Deficit Reduction

In "All Together Now: There Is No Deficit/Debt Problem,” I warned against the message calling for deficit reduction that the President would probably deliver in his State of the Union Address. And in a series of later posts, I looked at 7 fairy tales I thought he would tell. Finally, in a summary post, I offered a table summarizing the fairy tales and corresponding truths. In this post, I'll do a post-mortem. How many of the 7 fairy tales did he tell us? Read below the fold...

“Game on!” according to Obama’s most insidious team of propagandists.

Most MSNBC political anchors are so very excited about Obama getting his mojo back. His poll numbers are climbing.

Russia nuclear negotiations sound good. Final end to DADT also is a splendid Obama-Dem talking point. On now to the Dream Act. Juicy progressive political capital can be made and so much is not just forgiven re Obama but incredibly FORGOTTEN.

Cherry-picked progressive issues are apparently enough to give the high profile team of MSNBC progressive -- supposedly -- media darlings serious momentum in doing battle with Republican sensibilities and talking points for the upcoming election cycle. Read below the fold...

A New “Progressive” Deficit Reduction Plan

Thread: 

Even though I deny that there is a deficit/debt/debt-to-GDP ratio problem, I thought I'd get in on the fun everyone is having this month and offer my own deficit reduction plan. It prescribes 1) Keeping average interest rates at 0.0226; 2) finding a way to increase the growth in nominal GDP from an average annual change ratio of 1.044 (CBO’s assumption about growth) to a more historically (since 1940) typical average annual change ratio of 1.072.; and 3) putting a stop to increasing health care costs by passing Medicare for All immediately. The first two changes would result in deficit reductions in CBO-based projections of $8.3 Trillion from 2011 to 2020. The absolute value of the national debt increases from $9.2 Trillion in 2010 to $10.7 Trillion in 2020, and the debt-to-GDP ratio declines from 69% in 2010 to 37% in 2020. Read below the fold...

LATEST WAVE OF NAUSEA: Maddow Mythologizes Obama (World-Class Jumping of the Shark!)

Industrial kool-aid from Rachel Maddow at MSNBC.

Rachel is now filling the “enthusiasm gap” with jaw-dropping insistence that Obama is a GREAT president, his accomplishments have not been celebrated enough. Rachel, the self-appointed propaganda queen of the pragmatic faux-progressives. If you get a chance, check out yesterday’s Maddow show on MSNBC. Now the victim citizens are being blamed for not recognizing Obama’s great accomplishments. She even invites soft-spoken presidential historian, Michael Beschloss, to back her obscenely insulting myth making.

I was a huge fan of Rachel’s when she got launched, attacking the Bush regime with dazzling humor and research. Read below the fold...

Sometimes Not Getting the Joke is the Joke

I didn't pay much attention to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Washington rally. But David Carr of the New York Times did and wrote an unintentionally wonderful piece on it, lacking all self-awareness. Carr decides that if Stewart and Colbert can be witty then why can't he? Well, the answer to that is they have wits with which they can be witty. Carr, unfortunately, does not. He is really writing because he has taken umbrage at their shots against the press.

SB1070, Not Even Motivated By Hate But Prison Profiteering (sub-sub-sub basement of evil -- move over, drones)

Thread: 

Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer and her “papers please” SB1070 immigration law intends to use racial profiling as the immigration issue "solution". (Just got chills on the word "solution" ... now where have I heard that one?)

Up until now, progressives fighting this racist anti-constitutional, anti-human rights legislation assumed it had been inspired and initially drafted by “white supremacist hate groups.” Read below the fold...
