Congressional Black Caucus Stirs Up Race and Class Hatred for Obama

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

The socialists of the Congressional Black Caucus are touring the country inciting class and race hatred, rallying black support for Barack Obama and promoting antipathy to the “Tea Party” movement.

They are also openly calling on President Obama to re-create the Works Progress Administration, the Depression era mass make work scheme that was virtually run by the Communist Party USA.

CBCers in Los Angeles

Socialists Karen Bass, Maxine Waters, John Conyers, Hansen Clarke, Emanuel Cleaver and Andre Carson recently raised a little hell in Los Angeles.

From Rossana Cambron of the Communist Party USA’s Peoples World:

LOS ANGELES – Below are video highlights from the final Congressional Black Caucus jobs fair/town hall meeting held on Aug. 31 here at the Crenshaw Christian Center with more than 500 people in attendance. An estimated crowd of 20,000 had lined up earlier for the CBC’s jobs fair, according to Politico.

The CBC launched a series of town halls and jobs fairs called For the People Jobs Initiative in Cleveland, Aug. 8, to bring front and center the urgent need for federal action to create jobs. Since then the tour has traveled to Detroit, Miami and Atlanta, where they have elicited a wide public response and press coverage.

At each event, CBC members have been bringing their plan for creating jobs to the people, making it clear that it’s time to stand up to fight and meet the challenge. In Los Angeles, CBC members spoke to the need for a national jobs rally and march, and called for an extension of unemployment benefits until enough jobs are created. In addition, they demanded the creation of a 21st century Works Progress Administration to repair the country’s infrastructure. “When people have jobs they spend money, that is how you revitalize the economy,” said Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who hosted the event.

The Zombie Left Ratchets It Up

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

What next? But…

WH: Obama won’t ‘serve as speech police for Democratic Party’…

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit says:

The tolerant left strikes again…

Liberals create a video game where tea partiers are murdered.

They don’t want to discuss the issue.

They just want you dead.

In the latest “game” for far left activists you get to watch your favorite conservative pundits get slaughtered in front of your eyes – Including: Brit Hume, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich.

And, of course, Glenn Beck. And no violent far left creation would be complete without the inclusion of the Koch brothers somewhere in the game.

What lovely people.

Don’t expect the liberal media to report on this anytime soon.

UPDATE: The company that produced the Tea Party Zombie game is StarvingEyes. The developer who runs the website StarvingEyes is Jason Oda.

Starving Eyes has several clients including NASCAR.

Hmm… It sure would be a shame if NASCAR, GM, Pepsi, UPS, etc. found out about the violent trash StarvingEyes is posting on the internet.

Hat Tip: Founding Bloggers

From the Media Research Center…

Video Game Allows Players to Slaughter “Tea Party Zombies” Like Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly

For more on this game check out our blog post featuring comment from the game’s creator. Controversial online video game “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” allows players to slaughter Tea Partiers and famous conservatives with a variety of weapons. The graphic, offensive, and violent game was created by StarvingEyes Advergaming but does not have any obvious connection to or advertisement for any other group.

John Nolte at Big Hollywood writes:

We all know who fantasizes and encourages violence. If it’s not just a guy in Obama’s neighborhood it’s a guy introducing Obama or unions or disturbing stuff like this.

It’s the Left.

Liars in the world of entertainment will tell you that what happens on screen has no real-world effect. Which is why corporations spend billions every year using visual mediums to get people to change their behavior through advertising.

You know, because it has no effect.

Sneak Preview of Obama’s Thousand Points of Darkness “Jobs” Plan

By: Snarky Basterd
Feed Your ADHD

“Here comes the orator! with his flood of words, and his drop of reason.” — Benjamin Franklin

WASHINGTON, D.C – In a major campaign (jobs) speech before Congress tomorrow night, President Barack Obama will say that jobs are priority #1, just as soon as he gets re-elected in 2012.

In the meantime, the “Great Orator” will spell out a 5-point plan that will continue to spread a matrix of a Thousand Points of Darkness throughout the land until he can once again claim in January 2013 that “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

“I have spoken of a thousand points of darkness, of all of my community organizations that are spread like black holes throughout the Nation, doing my bidding. We will work hand in hand, encouraging, sometimes leading, sometimes being led, rewarding, as long as they bring me votes. We will work on this in the White House, in the Cabinet agencies, and in the Czar fiefdoms. I will go to the people and the programs that are the darker points of darkness, and I will ask every member of my government to become more like me. The old ideas are new again because they are not old, they are timeless: corruption, blaming, vacationing, and a socialism that finds its expression in taking apart and eradicating freedom,” he will tell the nation during his 7 p.m. televised address, while the rest of America ignores him, eats dinner, and gets ready for the opening game of the 2011 National Football League season.

Obama’s $300 billion lackluster plan proposes:

1. Naming Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa as Unicorn Czar. Hoffa will head a new agency, the Department of Unicorn Re-education and Training. Hoffa will be in charge of taking out Tea Party members and about half of the nation’s 20 million-plus unemployed in a new Unicorn Factory System, to be established at various federal property holdings throughout the country, and re-educating and training them to become unicorns.

2. Establishing a new back-to-work stimulus plan called Rainbows Across America. Each new unicorn will be put to work building rainbows that will span every acre of the country. The rainbows will bring every parcel of land under federal government control, effectively abolishing private property, thereby eliminating the need for American citizens to work to make their mortgage or rent payments, while corporations will cede control of the physical location of their business to the Teamsters. Unicorns will not receive pay, but for sustenance they’ll be given ample amounts of cake.

3. Creating the Barack Obama Caddy and Bus Driver Fund. Immediately following his speech, the president will go on permanent vacation until his presumed second inauguration in January 2013. Instead of running the country, Obama will embark on the I Take No Responsibility Bus Tour across America, stopping every day at a golf course to, of course, play golf. Obama expects a sizeable amount of sycophants to accompany him both on the road and at the golf course. Cabinet members and CongressCriminals will be invited, providing unemployed people at each stop with the opportunity to caddy for Obama et al for a day. Various people in each of the 57 states on the tour route — handpicked from a list of those who’ve filed unemployment claims, received welfare or food stamps, or previously worked for ACORN during the past three years — will be selected to drive the buses in Obama’s entourage.

4. Engineering the Restore Obama Stickers to America’s Cars program. The president will have the Treasury print Obama 2012 bumper stickers instead of money. Anyone not included in either the Rainbows Across America or Barack Obama Caddy and Bus Driver Fund programs will be ordered to place the bumper stickers on all cars in every Costco parking lot in America. Instead of a paycheck, participants will receive coupons for 7 free Costco Polish dog combo meals each week.

5. Enacting a Re-Elect Barack Obama Draft. All participants in the Thousand Points of Darkness plan will be conscripted into the Democratic Party and required to pre-cast 2012 ballots for Obama upon entering the program. Members of the Teamsters, SEIU, ACORN, and various other union and community organizations will stuff ballots, punch chads, and fill in electronic voting records in place of program participants in November 2012, thereby ensuring Obama’s re-election.

Otherwise, there’s no chance in hell he would win, even if he were running against the fly he publically murdered during a 2009 interview.

Getting Back to Basics: An Interview with GOP Congressional Candidate Bob Turner

By: Fern Sidman

Throwing his hat in the ring as the Republican contender for the vacant congressional seat in New York City’s 9th district is Bob Turner, a no-nonsense, back to basics populist candidate. As the 2012 presidential race gains momentum, Mr. Turner has an eye toward creating new and vibrant leadership in Washington, while taking issue with the controversial policies of the Obama administration. On Tuesday, September 13th, a special election will be held pitting Turner against New York State assemblyman David Weprin (D). Recently, The Jewish Voice sat down with Mr. Turner to get his perspective on the issues confronting Americans today.

JV: Mr. Turner, can you tell us, why, at age 70, having never been involved in politics, you are running for elected office?

BT: Actually, my political career began 18 months ago when I ran against former Congressman Anthony Weiner. While I lost that election, I did garner 41% of the vote, which signified to me that a sizeable number of voters in the 9th congressional district felt that Weiner was not representing their positions on the issues. Personally, when I heard Weiner speak, I was outraged at his absurd explanations for supporting the disastrous policies of the Obama adminstration.

I then contacted Mike Long of the New York Conservative party and asked him who was opposing Weiner on the ballot and who I could send a check to. When he told me that he was running unopposed, I was quite surprised and Mike told me that we need an independent candidate with strong business experience who can effectively articulate the conservative position on the issues. It was then that he asked me to run and after giving it careful consideration, I decided to do it. After losing the race, I had thought my political career wsa over but I was nominated by the party to run again and they asked if I would give it another try. There are serious problems facing our country as we are totally off course on a panoply of domestic issues and our foreign policy is a complete mess. With that in mind, I felt the voters of the 9th congressional district should have a choice in who represents them in Washington, rather than being saddled with someone who rubber stamps the president’s policies.

JV: Concerning your career as a cable television executive, what can you bring to the table as far as business management skills?

BT: My business career spans over 40 years as I’ve worked for CBS and Gray Advertising. I’ve been both president and chief executive officer of four different companies with revenues of over 100 million plus. I started one of these companies completely from scratch with a knowledge of capital markets and how to get new money to invest in businesses. I have hands-on experience in growing businesses both domestic and international and that knowledge will prove to be invaluable when dealing with fiscally irresponsible policies of the Obama administration. As a business person, I respect the person who works hard and don’t want the tax dollars of the middle class to be squandered by incompetents. Right now our country is being run by academics and career politicians and what we’re sorely lacking in these deliberations is a pragmatic approach to the economy; a bonafide business plan that has been proven successful so many times.

JV: What are your plans for stimulating job growth and lowering taxes for the small business owner in Brooklyn and Queens?

BT: There are three principle areas that we need to focus on. Firstly, we need to tap into resources in the energy field. We need to ask all energy companies to work on a domestic program immediately and that means domestic drilling and off shore resources. In New York State, we’re not doing nearly enough to exploit our natural resources. In other states such as Pennsylvania, there are over 70,000 people employed in the steel industry and if we explore our options we too can become a major employer in the energy field.

In order to help these development plans along we must immediately remove the litany of government regulations that are strangling the private business sector and we must start encouraging American ingenuity and creativity. The intentions of this administration have met great uncertainty especially when it pertains to repatriating foreign profits. This means that U.S. corporations can repatriate earnings attributable to foreign business operations at a greatly reduced tax rate and right now there is more than $1 trillion in U.S. corporate profits that reside overseas The mistake that this administration has made and other Democratic administrations have made for decades is that they think they can compel businesses to keep their investments in the U.S. by taxing profits generated by American companies in foreign countries and that is simply untrue. By encouraging companies to spend money on plant equipment and new product development, you will give them incentives to spend their money here, thus creating more jobs.

We had best dramatically reduce government regulations rather quickly as Obamacare is crippling small businesses and is literally pulling millions of dollars out of them. We’re looking at higher insurance premiums and let’s remember that the insurance companies are only making a 2 percent profit. What you have are substantially less benefits and inadequate healthcare. In addition to insurance companies; financial and corporate institutions are being hard hit by this as well. Soon, jobs will be sent to London and Toronto. These are the unintended consequences of massive regluations. Rather than creating an environment that would make borrowing money easier, it just makes it more cumbersome.

JV: As a representative from New York, I’m sure you know many of your constituents are without a healthcare plan. What would you do to insure that Americans who do not receive healthcare coverage from their employer get a plan that will be effective for them? On that note, as a congressman, would you lead the charge to have the president’s healthcare reform bill repealed on the grounds that it violates the commerce clause of the constitution?

BT: I would liike to see the healthcare reform bill repealed as it represents a financial nightmare for generations to come. I’m outraged at the fact that government has placed itself in the way of the patient/doctor relationship and the attendant procedures. If anything, the president’s bill has only increased the already exorbitant cost of healthcare. We must look at other states who have implemented much better healthcare models such as Massachusetts with only 4% of the population there uninsured. We’ve taken trillions of dollars out of Medicare and have put it into a feckless Obamacare plan that is going nowhere. What we’re witnessing today is an economic war with middle class families who have to shoulder the costs of Medicaid. While Medicaid might be okay in the short term, it will never be a long term resolution for millions of uninsured Americans.

JV: What is your plan to lower the national debt and free ourselves from our dependency on China for loans and how would you go about making this country solvent again?

BT: I feel that we have to grow our way out of this problem. We must work towards growing and strengthening the economy and not the deficit. Grow the economy and not the deficit. Cuurently, our GDP (Gross Domestic Product) which refers to the market value of all final goods and services produced in our country, is at 15 trillion dollars. In the next seven to eight years, out objective must be to return to a 20 trillion dollar mark. We can accomplish that by drastically cutting our expenditures which are totally out of control. Our budget must match our overall revenue and I think its insane that we’re borrowing money and spending twice as much as we have. We’re only going deeper into a hole. It’s like opening up a new credit card to pay off the debts on an existing one.

JV: On the foreign policy front, President Obama has been pressuring Israel to sit at the negotiating table with the Palestinian-Hamas government with the objective of creating an independent Palestinian state. Can you tell us your thoughts on this and on the upcoming Durban III UN sponsored conference, and the UN general assembly meeting in which a vote will be taken to create a Palestinian state under the leadership of Hamas?

BT: I think I can send a clear and unequivocal message to President Obama on this issue by winning the election. The president must know that the Jewish vote cannot be taken for granted. We must make the Democratic party aware that they’re not living in reality. I have the endorsements of both former New York City mayors Ed Koch and Rudy Guiliani who represent the liberal and conservative ends of the political spectrum and who share my views that Israel should never be coerced into dealing with a Hamas government who seeks their destruction and ultimately the destruction of America and the western world. Every word in the Palestinian-Hamas charter is antithetical to everything we believe in and thereby it is absolutely absurd to expect the Israelis to negotiate with them. My answer to those countries who would cast their vote for a Palestinian state is for America to cut their foreign aid packages. Those countries voting for the creation of a Palestinian state are doing so in exchange for bribes from the oil producing countries.

Today we are fighting a war for our very survival and this war is being waged againt us by the forces of militant Islam which has spread its tentacles far and wide. I vividly recall those Iraqis holding up their purple thumbs after voting for the first time and what a small taste of democracy can do for people. We must empower and embolden democratic factions in the Middle East and never lose sight of the fact that Israel is our only stable, democratic ally in the region and must be treated as the loyal friend that she is. As to the Green Revolution in Iran, I saw this as an opportunity missed by our government by not strongly supporting those voices who call for freedom, justice and democracy.

JV: Educating the children of the 9th congressional district has become a financial burden on middle class parents who have chosen not to send their children to public schools. What would you do in terms of tuition tax credits for parents wishing to send their children to private and parochial schools?

BT: Tuition tax credits are fine for starters, but I would like to implement a school voucher program that will alleviate the tremendous financial strain on parents and will significantly offset the immense costs of a private education. By doing so, we are saving the taxpayer an enormous amount of money. Each taxpayer in New York spends about $8,000 per student in a failing public school system. By investing in private education, we can reduce the jobless rates in the future by providing a quality education for our children and afford them with the kind of incentives to succeed that they won’t get elsewhere. I don’t think it’s fair or reasonable to keep burdening the taxpayer, which is why I see school tax credits as a quicker and easier way to resolve this ongoing crisis in education.
