The political truce is over.

"The reheated Benghazi "scandal" and other two aimless "scandals" are nothing but political junkie fodder. Neither will end in anything substantial. Collective yawns from the public as the tea party queens flog themselves with their laminated copies of the constitution that they can't read."

~Comment left on Mediaite~

Ouch!

I think we are far enough away from the tragedy in Oklahoma to declare an end to the cease fire when it comes to political s*** talking.

Of course the wingnuts couldn't even wait until the wind stopped swirling to start with their political cheap shots.

"That’s exactly the premise of a tweet that Fox News contributor Erick Erickson sent in the aftermath of the devastation. “I wonder when President Obama will find out about Oklahoma,” ...Erickson went on to scold his critics as humorless and “self-righteous,” even as he tweeted “Confession: I often hesitate to retweet pastors because of the unbridled hate from the hell bound that might then get directed at them.” [Source]

Erickson is a moron and a racist, so his very inappropriate and ill- timed tweet is not all that surprising. 

Bill Bennett, on the other hand, surprised me a bit. I expected a  little more from him. But there he was on his radio show this morning belittling and making fun of the poor people who suffered during Katrina and praising the folks from Oklahoma for their "fighting spirit" and their "patriotic American can- do attitude". [No links, but if I am lying, Bill Bennett is free to try and to sue me.] Bill Bennett, like all those of his ilk, is a sanctimonious dope.

And, as if this wasn't enough,a wingnut politrickster found it necessary to play political games with a national tragedy.

"As of this morning, at least 51 people, including 20 children, are dead in the suburbs of Oklahoma City, following one of the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history. Rescue teams worked through the night, especially in the devastated city of Moore, and local officials fear the death toll may yet rise significantly. [Update: as of this afternoon, the death toll had been revised down to 24, not 51.]

Ordinarily, so soon after a disaster of this magnitude, discussions about political agendas and ideologies are put on hold, which is why it came as a surprise when one of Oklahoma's U.S. senators staked out a far-right position on federal disaster relief just five hours after the storm hit.
The tornado damage near Oklahoma City is still being assessed and the death toll is expected to rise, but already Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., says he will insist that any federal disaster aid be paid for with cuts elsewhere. 
CQ Roll Call reporter Jennifer Scholtes wrote for CQ.com Monday evening that Coburn said he would "absolutely" demand offsets for any federal aid that Congress provides. 
Coburn added, Scholtes wrote, that it is too early to guess at a damage toll but that he knows for certain he will fight to make sure disaster funding that the federal government contributes is paid for.
I've seen many note overnight that Coburn is at least consistent -- there are plenty of politicians who've balked at disaster-relief funds when there's a devastating storm, only to change their minds when their constituents are among the casualties. Coburn, however, has routinely questioned emergency funding for everyone, and apparently wants to apply the same standards to his own home state.

But while consistently is welcome, it doesn't change the questions about unnecessary callousness.

For many years, federal disaster relief was effectively automatic -- there was bipartisan support for quickly responding to American communities in their time of need. It was a reflection of who we are as a people -- when disaster strikes, we're there for the people in affected areas, regardless of politics.

But in recent years, many Republican lawmakers have decided to change the standards. Under the new approach, they'll consider emergency resources, but only if Democrats agree to cut a comparable amount from the budget elsewhere. There's no real economic rationale for this, but for much of the right, the ideological rationale is sufficient."' [Source]

Overheard in the Fox newsroom: "Is it safe to talk about Benghazi and the IRS now?" 

Yes wingnut, the truce is over.

The President's administration is embroiled in scandals because of its incompetence, political callousness, lies, and felony crimes, and the problem is that "wingnuts" have the temerity to notice?

Do you know how foolish you look?

By wingnut do you mean moonbat?:

While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

“So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas.”


That is, he actually accused Oklahomans of bringing the tragedy on themselves by refusing to pretend that tornadoes are caused by insufficient federal regulation.

Meanwhile, at least 51 people are dead in Oklahoma. They were not killed by global warming, since there hasn’t been any for 16 years now.

There truly is no lower life form than a left-wing politician.

Well, Field is playing the big R angle with the wingnuts, implying they are so racist that they can't wait to take the President down.

However, in his speech at Morehouse College, he made it clear that there are no more excuses for being Black. "Nobody cares where you come from or how hard you've had it," Obama said.

If you check out Field's post, Mr. Field agreed with him. That is, Black men have no excuses for not succeeding in the world anymore because of their skin color.

Hence, it's fair game for the GOP to thoroughly investigate Benghazi and the IRS scandals and to go after the President because it. Being a black President is no longer an issue. Thank you, Obama!

Anon, that's a good point. Does Field think that Obama should get a pass on these scandals because he is black?

Well, he used to. But after Obama's speech at Morehouse College to 500 Black graduates, Field is a changed man. Thanks to Obama Field-as well as some other FN Negroes- no longer blame or accept any excuses for a bm to NOT succeed. Per President Obama, "NO MORE EXCUSES!"

Obama's greatest legacy: getting Blacks and Whites to no longer accept any excuses from the bm. So, when the GOP Impeaches Obama, there will be cries of discrimination from Blacks...No Excuses! Isn't that beautiful?

Coburn is getting lit up by his constituents on social media. At least some wingnuts are pulling the cover from their eyes and seeing the truth these guys are callous and have no empathy. Oh well Oklahoma, you elected the asshat.

How about going along with Sen. Tom Coburn, but with the proviso that the cuts come only out of other federal money earmarked for Oklahoma. That's the fairest right wing solution of all.

------

They are not supposed to have "empathy", they are supposed to legislate.

These disaster bills always include an obscene amount of pork. These greedy bastards tack on all sorts of special interest payoffs as payment for their votes.

The bill for Sandy was $59 billion, less than half of which ($26 billion) had anything to do with Sandy. That's right, $33 billion extra was the price in pork tacked to get it passed. When the Republicans tried to say it should be paid for by cuts elsewhere, they were reamed in the press for their lack of "empathy".

I guess in New Speak, "empathy" now means "shake down"

cc hobama's pookie speech to morehouse grads

This view is personified in the person of President Barack Obama. He is light skinned, has no connection with the Black community, Ivy League educated, and seems very uncomfortable around Blacks who are not part of the bourgeoisie.

He is more comfortable talking about Newtown than he is Chi-town (Chicago). He hangs with the likes of Jay-Z, BeyoncĂ©, Alicia Keys, and Hill Harper to give him “street cred.”

Yet, he ignores the very issues that gave birth to the Hip-Hop nation—police brutality, Black on Black crime, teenage pregnancy, the glorification of the drug culture, etc.

The Blacks that have regular access to this White House rarely, if ever, lift their voices to address some of the needs and concerns of those who can’t afford to raise thousands of dollars for the president.

These Blacks have not once criticized the Obama administration’s lack of action in regards to the issues of particular concern to the Black community. Oh, I forgot, they don’t want to jeopardize their invitations to the White House’s Christmas party.

These Blacks rationalize that Obama can’t afford to be seen doing anything specifically for Blacks for fear that Obama will be called a Black president. Well, I thought he was the first Black president?

So, let me make sure I understand this; it’s ok to do specific things for the Black bourgeoisie—private invitations to the White House, rides on Air Force One, private movie screenings at the White House, but he can’t do things specifically to address the high unemployment rate in the Black community?

Seems this Administration didn't want much news at all coming out between May and November of 2012.

But all of this just happened. No one's to blame. Maybe some policies:

IRS Completed Internal Investigation Into Tea Party Targeting Matter in May 2012; Hid Report from Congress

Just yesterday the committee interviewed Holly Paz, the director of exempt organizations, rulings and agreements, division of the IRS,' Issa said. 'While a tremendous amount of attention is centered about the Inspector General's report, or investigation, the committee has learned from Ms. Paz that she in fact participated in an IRS internal investigation that concluded in May of 2012 - May 3 of 2012 - and found essentially the same thing that Mr. George found more than a year later.'

At the Hearings: Democratic Representative Matt Cartwright is pushing the "caseload doubled" falsehood, and is claiming that the problem is that the poor overburdened IRS just didn't have enough money (aka "resources") to carry out its tasks without resorting to political targeting.

It will, of course, shock you to learn that the above-mentioned Holly Paz donated $2,000 to Obama's 2008 campaign.

Everything in the news is a distraction from Benghazi. Obama has decided to concede some ground on the IRS scandal (watch - he will fire Lois Lerner) in order to facilitate stonewalling on Benghazi. The AP scandal will blow over because the press is owned by the democrats, and of course none of them will stand by the abused Fox.

Boston must be portrayed as the act of two misguided brothers, not the indicator of terrorists among us that it is.

They will lie as the day is long, and you will be right there to cheer them on, like the good house negro you are.

THE WORLD AWAKES WITH THE KILLING OF A WHITE MAN IN LIBYA

13 Saturday Oct 2012

Posted by Alexandra Valiente in LIBYA

Lizzie Phelan

It was not the systematic persecution and lynching of black Libyans and migrant workers from other African countries by one of the thousands of militias that were armed by NATO and co, the persecution of people who were allied with the former government, the tens of thousands of political prisoners arbitrarily detained, the murder of Muammar Gaddafi or the current siege of Bani Walid, that alerted the world to how much chaos has been unleashed in Libya. But the killing of a white man, the US ambassador.

But still that chaos will be portrayed as something that is a result of the uncivilized nature of Libyans/Arabs/Muslims/Africans rather than what it really is…a result of the NATO war that destroyed the former Libyan government and with it the fabric that held the country together in a wider context of decades of western interference in the wider region.
