Despite Leftist Attacks, Glenn Beck's Ratings Rise

By Douglas V. Gibbs

It is almost comical - but it is typical. Whenever the Left tries to do something wicked, it always backfires on them.

Liberal groups have been boycottig the Glenn Beck Program, and he has been under constant attack by the Left.

The result? "Pure Ratings Gold."

According to Newsmax, On Wednesday, Beck had more than 3 million viewers, just slightly behind Bill O'Reilly's No. 1 show, which airs in prime time - and Beck's show is not in prime time. Glenn Beck did, however, pull ahead of Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren, both of whom also appear in prime time.

Democratic Party Big Top - Leftist Circus Report

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Come one, come all, come see the most amazing collection of misfits, freaks, and far left humans that could never survive in the mainstream society. They are royalty from Camelot and community organizers from Chicago. They come from San Francisco to Vegas, from Los Angeles to Massachusetts, from Arizona to Florida. Clowns, liberal lions, and the acrobatic wonders of deceptive illusions are all available for you to see. These far left liberal freaks of nature are the most amazing assortment of Leftist Radicals you will see under one governmental circus tent since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Here, under the big tent, lies a lion. He is now dead, yet people come from miles around to see how he amazingly still has an impact, even in death, on the circus of leftist policies. He is the youngest of three self-proclaimed kings. These three brothers of American Royalty had the amazing ability to do horrendous things, and yet still come out smelling like a rose. Adultery? Murder? (Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune is just happy cable wasn't around back then for the Chappaquiddick Scandal, otherwise, Teddy Kennedy may have been forced to face the consequences for his actions) Public drunkenness? If you are a Kennedy, nothing can stop you - not even yourself. Then, in death, watch carefully for the youngest of the three, the Lion of the Senate, Senator Edward Kennedy to have his name invoked by the Democrats in Calling for Health Care Reform.

Then, when you think you are done with Kennedy, more about Teddy's exploits arises from the ashes like a phoenix rising from the dead, in the form of a traitorous letter to the USSR, made available when the KGB made their files available to the public. What was the letter about? Senator Edward Kennedy wanted to work with the Soviets to help the Soviet Union defeat Reagan’s efforts to build up the nuclear deterrent in Europe.

Absolutely amazing!

Marvel at the incredible skills of the Two-Faced Liar, Nancy Pelosi, who will amaze with her untruths, and crazy stories to cover up her blatant lying. She knew about water boarding, encouraged its use, and then claimed it was horrid and she knew nothing about the technique being used. Grand Ma'am Pelosi, and the bearded, pant-suited Clintonista (aka Hillary Clinton), will amaze young and old alike with their horrific lies in ways you never thought they could be told. Hmmm, no wonder they sent her off to Africa. Good place to make sure she stays out of the way, and doesn't foul things up with her wayward, screeching mouth.

Watch in Amazement as the bare-armed woman, Michelle Obama, claims that America must change its traditions and history while visiting Puerto Rico, while not only escaping unscathed and unburned, but receives applause instead for her daring feat. Some would say this was yet another clue that the Left desires to change America's form of government from a Capitalistic Republic, to a Socialistic Democracy (and eventually a fascist totalitarian state).

Listen in awe as Diane Watson, a Democrat Representative out of Los Angeles, California proclaims Fidel Castro is a man to be admired, and that he is a bright leader. Listen as she walks the tight-wire, praising radical murderer Che Guevara for disposing of the wealthy in Cuba, and being a part of the team that made the country the murderous communist regime it became, and remains today. Watch in amazement as she magically pulls out the race-card and verbally communicates that she believes people are against Obamacare because Barack Obama is black.

Marvel at the mainstream media's ability to attack anyone that opposes the Obama Administration, while being unwilling to jump through fiery rings of openly reporting on the stories that could make Democrats look bad.

- Never mind the fact that Hassan Nemazee, CEO of Nemazee Capital and former Finance Chairman to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, was arrested and charged with bank fraud.

- Forget that the EPA came up with a report that questioned the man-made global warming scam, and then the Obama Administration muzzled it. Of course when that very same EPA, in another report, proclaims Carbon Dioxide a pollutant, and that Carbon Dioxide needs to be regulated, suddenly what the EPA has to say is important. But, of course (sarcasm pump number one on full blast) there is no political motivation in what the press is willing to report, and what they don't - oh, and be careful breathing. Your exhales are destroying the planet.

- Who cares about the fact that a '08 Democrat Supporter and Worker shattered eleven windows at the state Democratic Party headquarters in Colorado in the hopes it would be blamed on those dangerous right wing extremists (you know, those rabid senior citizens that have been dangerously confronting our poor, innocent, defenseless representatives at the Town Hall Meetings?). If you didn't notice, sarcasm pump number two was full blast for that one.

- Never mind that the federal government mistakenly sent out stimulus checks to 1,700 inmates in a perfect example of how well they administer their policies.

- The News about the ACLU trying to ensure a couple of school administrators go to jail for daring to pray wasn't even worthy enough for the mainstream media clowns to report.

- And if you are even willing to mention the words "Obama" and "internment camp" in the same sentence, in the eyes of the Left you are automatically falsely assuming that the Democrat's plan to round up all dissidents (and you are wearing a tin foil hat to protect your brains from the aliens) - of course the fact that H1N1 outbreak precautions are being taken to ensure everyone is mandatorily vaccinated, and internment activities are in full swing by the government just in case such measures are needed, are to be forgotten and buried by the unicycle riding clowns of the mainstream media.

- Never mind the trampling by a herd of elephants of religious freedoms, and parental rights, in this country too - You didn't think the press would say anything about a Christian homeschool girl in New Hampshire being ordered to a government-run public school for having "sincerely held" religious beliefs, did you? The guardian ad litem wouldn't even look at the homeschool curriculum, saying, "I don't want to hear it. It's all Christian based." Oh, how dare those parents teach their kids Christianity - good thing the government was there to stop such child abuse (sarcasm pump number 3). Richard Dawkins would be proud.

- But the media clown's anti-Christian agenda doesn't stop there. Their red nose honking at the First Amendment extends to their belief that if a church, or Christian University, even utters a word about anything that some clown, somewhere, determines to be political, immediately the Left swoops in to challenge their tax exempt status. How dare those religious people have an opinion, right? That's hardly Constitutional. Last time I checked the U.S. Constitution, the federal government can't "prohibit the free exercise" of religion. That's in the First Amendment, in case you didn't know. You know, a part of the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution? You ought to read it some time.

No wonder, then, that I heard on the radio that after Obama met with 75 pastors in the hopes of dividing and conquering those religious folk, 400 churches requested giving up their tax exempt status so that they could speak out against the compromises many of the denominations are now committing.

As for the greatest clowns among the television broadcasters? They are truly the most acrobatic clowns of all in this vast, left wing political circus. They get thrills (tingles?) up their legs when Obama speaks, or at least Chris Matthews does. Hey, Chris, maybe you should get that checked out. Maybe it's restless leg syndrome.

Since then, Chris' tingling problem has apparently gone to his brain, and is being deposited as manure from the mouth. One of his most recent bouts with Leftist Acute Moronic Eccentricity (LAME) is that he decided to compare Sarah Palin to Howard Stern, and Bill Clinton to God. Hmmm, if Bill is God, and Barack Obama is the Messiah, would that make Billy-boy Barack's daddy? Bill doesn't look like he was born in Kenya.

That wild and crazy Keith Olbermann isn't exactly a man of journalistic integrity, either. Keith's latest inability to get the facts right occurred when Olbermann claimed that Joe Kennedy Jr., the eldest Kennedy brother, was "shot down in World War II." I am sure the tiny little libtard audience didn't catch the poor journalism on Keith's part. They never do. In reality, Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. was part of an experimental program called Operation Aphrodite that attempted to turn a bomb-laden plane into a remote controlled explosive device. Kennedy was one of many pilots who lost their lives trying to make this program a reality.

More amazing than those crazy clowns of the press is the ring leader himself. Uncle Barry has surrounded himself with radicals and tax cheats. Mr. Obama proclaims he is a "man in charge" that settles for no less than all the power he can grab, or whatever his teleprompter allows him to say. That hunt for power includes power over the Internet with revised bill S.773, which still appears (after a lot of hulla-bulloo over the original powers allowed the president in the bill) to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector Internet networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency. To keep his opposition occupied, and on the defense, the Obama Administration has opened an investigation of CIA interrogators in an insane attempt at misdirection. Meanwhile, just to make sure no other dissidents become a problem, Obama is ready with a strong arm tactic using College Students. Uncle Barry is building an army of citizen volunteers. The first step in the recruiting of these fine Obama supporters is being done at colleges across the country. The sales pitch? Join the Obama Team to "build support for President Obama's agenda" – and earn college credit while advocating for "change."

Meanwhile, the ring leader's fall in the polls is the third fastest drop to 50% since Hoover. Only Gerald Ford (probably because of his pardon of Nixon), and Bill Clinton, fell faster. Some polls, like Zogby, have Obama well below 50%. Rasmussen's poll has shown the people that strongly disapprove of President Obama to outnumber those that strongly approve of his presidency since June, and consistently all throughout July and August, with the differential now at -11.

So far, that's all I have regarding the Letist Circus of Crazies. I am sure we will be reporting again soon. In fact, next time on the Democrat Leftist Circus Report maybe we'll talk about some of the other freaks, like Harry Reid, Maxine Waters, Rahm Emanuel, and the many other members of the liberal cast of crazies.

Why We Need Socialized Health Care Rebutted

The Competitive Enterprise Institute sent me a note, recently, bringing my attention to a You Tube video floating around that proclaims it has the facts as to why we need a Government-Run Universal Socialized Health Insurance system. Watching the video I quickly recognized misunderstandings of the real world by the maker of the little cartoon. Apparently, I was not the only one. As advised by CEI, Lee Doren also saw a lot of holes in the argument, and using the ridiculous liberal lefty video as the backdrop, Doren made the video below as a rebuttal:

FEMA Internment Camps: Truth? Or Fiction?

By Douglas V. Gibbs

In an Internet group I am a member of, a lot of talk about FEMA Camps built to imprison rounded up dissidents has come up. Like those folks that believed George W. Bush was planning on instituting martial law and throwing anyone that disagreed with his policies into a Nazi-style internment camp (complete with ovens), an argument has arisen that the Obama Administration plans to jail dissidents as well. I, myself, have played around with the idea that the Left is capable of such atrocities a couple times. But when one sits down and thinks about it, you realize that nothing could be farther from the truth. Not because the Democrats see how wrong it is, but because such a blatant misuse of power, without a viable explanation, is not in their nature. Don't get me wrong, I could see them very easily deciding to take such actions in the face of a "National Emergency." Perhaps an outbreak of Swine Flu, or another Katrina-style Hurricane, is just the excuse they are waiting for. In the end, however, that is not how this kind of tyranny takes over. They are patient. They are conniving. And they are deceptive.

Below is my response to a debate that arose in my Internet group regarding whether or not FEMA Camps really exist, and whether or not we should be worried that the Left is going to round up us rightwing extremists anytime soon:

Internment camps may be on the minds of some on the Left. I am sure that some of the leftist Democrats have entertained the idea of throwing those crazy members of the rightwing loon brigade into a camp just to be rid of us. But these people on the left in control of the American Government right now, though they are using a classic overreach right now with their policies, for the most part understand that the takeover of America must be done incrementally.

Creeping Incrementalism is how they've been doing it all along, and though the pace has been stepped up a little, they are not about to ruin generations of deception with a quick jump over the shark.

Anything that is obviously against the law, and can't be explained away with their typical rhetoric, is not something these people will attempt. . . yet. I believe as most of you do that the Left has its eyes on changing the American Form of Government, and going into Uncle Barry's presidency they really thought that they could step across that line of no return, and "change" America into something it was never intended to be. But, they underestimated the American People. They did not expect us to refuse to be fooled.

I do believe the Left wishes greatly to be able to shut up all dissidents, and that to some degree force may be used. In fact, strong-arm tactics have already been employed by Obama supporting groups like ACORN and SEIU at the Town Hall meetings. I will also be the first to admit that often the Democrats amaze me at their willingness to overstep lines I thought they'd never cross. I believe that some of them have even toyed with the idea of internment camps for dissidents, and I have joked about it a few times on my Political Pistachio site, daring them to come and get me. But, as crazy as these people are, and as in line as they are politically with National Socialism (Nazism) and Soviet idealism (communism, Marxism), I do not think that they are capable of the kinds of murderous atrocities (or detainment of dissidents) that Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, and every other Leftist dictator in history, has exhibited. I don't think they have camps built with barbed wire around them, and I don't think they have goon squads at the ready to begin rounding up anyone that disagrees with them.

That said, however, I do believe they are capable of some of the things you fear.

I do believe the Leftist Democrats are willing to take steps to silence the opposition. I do believe many of them are frustrated that they can't do what you fear they are up to, like FEMA Camps. But you have to remember, these people are deceivers. Masters of deception. They don't perform such injustices in the open. They wrap tyranny nicely, placing labels that claim whatever it is they are offering is actually something other than what is in the package. They smile, as they hand you the gift, promising you that it is all for the common good of our society. In other words, they are capable of all you think they are, but they will only do so in a deceptive manner, giving us the shaft as we smile and accept it willingly. That is how these people work. The Left will convince you that their idiocy is for your own good, and only they can inject it properly. Then, after smiling, winking, and truly believing what they say, you look down and have shackles on your ankles you didn't realize were there.

FEMA Camps are too obvious. They would rather imprison you with your permission, and your happy willingness to do so, because you have been convinced it is for the good of America.

The Listening Guy joins Political Pistachio Radio

Looking for a different angle to explore with the economy?

Employment, sales training expert, and founder of, Tom Armour, says the #1 skill you need to develop in order to navigate this tougher than ever job market is...LISTENING. "Being a good listener, and then responding to what you learn when listening, is crucial in so many ways, especially now. And unfortunately, most Americans are much better at talking than listening, which has become something of a lost art."

Dubbed "The Listening Guy", Tom will give us the lowdown on this crucial lost skill, and why it's so important.

I will ask Tom about:

- How being a great listener can help you hang onto the job you have longer, or better position you for a transition

- Three ways that "listening" to the phrasing of a Help Wanted ad can help you give you a leg up on other applicants

- How listening is the most important strategy in selling yourself to potential employers before, during and after a job interview

- The reason that the best listener in a company are often the most highly paid

- What President Obama has said repeatedly about his own listening skills

Political Pistachio Radio Revolution: Two Guests For The Price Of One

Ralph Reed has strongly endorsed it. Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and Bobby Jindal are reading it. Conservative News-Talkers everywhere are abuzz about it. "Animal Colony" could be the novel that will change America and stop our slide into socialism, much in the way ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell helped put an end to the communist movement by changing public opinion about the Soviet Union.

A unique retelling of ANIMAL FARM, "Animal Colony" tells how Jamestown's animals flee captivity for a Promised Land of liberty and prosperity. Tragically, they lose it all to collectivism and overtaxation, trading one form of tyranny for another. The message of "forced sharing" by a runaway government couldn't be more timely, or relevant.

Tonight, co-author Mark Olsen is the guest of the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution during the first segment of the program. Listen live at at 7:00 pm Pacific Time.


Grace Lee says "Our culture has lost its manners!"

Perhaps it's because we live knee deep in a digital age, when personal phone calls yield to unspoken emails. Maybe it's the fact that more homes with single parents or two working parents means less time for family dinner. Maybe it's because our world has become a world of privacy fences.

Most likely, its all of those factors, and more.

Ms. Lee will be joining the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution during the second hour of the broadcast to further explore with us the intriguing and complicated reasons why this is happening, and when the erosion really began. But, more importantly, she'll enlighten us to the inherent benefits, in both business and personal lives, of exercising our "social graces." And, she'll explain how we can reclaim them.

From that big job interview, to that nerve rattling baptism meeting with the girlfriend's parents - and every turning-point encounter we experience in between - Grace Lee says etiquette is critical in reaching our goals.

"If you don't make a positive first impression," she says, "you may not get the chance to make a second. How you impress others determines whether they'll hire you, give you that promotion or investment capital . . . or say 'yes' to a date."

Grace Lee is our guest during the second hour, beginning at 8:00 pm Pacific Time. Join us for the eye-opening discussion with Ms. Lee that will resonate with everyone, because the subject is so much a part of our lives. Join us live at, or catch the archive later.

United Nations Report Advocates Teaching Masturbation to Kids

By Douglas V. Gibbs

I don't know what to say. Creeping incrementalism that began with teaching sex education in the classroom, eliminating prayer from the schools, and the push for the justification of homosexual behavior, I believe are a big part of this insanity.

The United Nations, in a report, recommends that young children as young as five receive mandatory sexual education teaching about masturbation and gender violence - in other words, anti-gay attacks.

The report is 98 pages long, and insists the program is "age appropriate."

I am speechless. It does not get more disgusting than this. Who are they to decide what our children should be taught?

And they think kids will "understand" these topics?

How early, and disgusting, is their indoctrination of the children going to get?

We have a problem in our society with teen pregnancy (and pre-teen pregnancy sometimes), abortion, promiscuity, etc. Could it be that their plan to teach these kids all about the dangers of sex has backfired? Could it be that conservatives like myself were right all along?

And remember, these are the same people that actually demonize the teaching of abstinence. They actually believe telling kids to wait until marriage is damaging. That's like arguing that teaching children not to lie, or steal is futile. It is as if they wish to push their culture of sex on the kids.

The innocence of childhood means nothing to these people. What the leftist mind is doing is destroying society one child at a time.

The Transfer of Camelot to the Borg

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Leftists don't understand why the GOP doesn't have a "leader." They see it as some kind of weakness, or disorganization. Symbolism, and Royalty-like figures, are important to the Left. That comes naturally to them. They have trouble with conservatives considering themselves individuals.

It's a liberal "collectivist" thing, I suppose.

With the death of Senator Edward Kennedy, the closest thing the Democrats had to royalty has come to an end. Camelot is no more. The Liberal Lion has left the Left without a roar.

In the "Star Trek The Next Generation" television series there was a character group called "The Borg." The creatures were organic beings, turned machine. Their individuality had been abandoned for the betterment of "The Hive." They thought as one collective mind, and served under a queen that kept them occupied with activities that were for the common good of The Hive.

Sound like the Left?

With each passing election cycle the Democrats become more and more like those fictional Borg. They become more about the collective every time they speak, and you can almost hear the sucking sound as their individuality incrementally fades.

The problem with Teddy Kennedy, though he was a very loud Liberal Senator that fought hard for what he believed, is that he was not going to ever be President, and the Democrats knew it.

What good was it to have a royal family like the Kennedys if they were never going to retake the throne?

Enter, stage left, the Obamas. (Bill and Hillary have got to be spitting flames, being passed up like that).

Even Chris Matthews has proclaimed that Camelot has been transferred to Barack Obama. Obama is the new liberal royalty, and the liberals are willing to blindly follow him, and his policies, like the trained doggies that they are. That's why the politicians don't read the legislation. They trust his majesty's liberalness. Why read the bills? Oh, Mighty Obama, will make it all be good.

I can hear that Borg chant now.

"We are the Democrats. We are here to assimilate you. Resistance is futile."

Hate to break it to you lefties out there that are in the minority (remember, most of the country considers themselves conservatives). . . Resistance is working. The Town Halls and Tea Parties have taken a toll on the Democrats.

I am almost enjoying watching the Democrats running around in a panic - like a Borg separated from The Hive.

If Government is so great. . .

By Douglas V. Gibbs

When I debate Leftists, I ask them, "If government is so good at administering programs, then why can't they run any of them well?

The Liberal usually responds that he can name many programs that the government runs well.

"Okay, then, name some."

Medicare? Medicare is $3.8 Trillion in debt.

Social Security? The program has been used as a piggy bank by every department in the U.S. Government, and most Americans have come to the realization that the greatest ponzi scheme ever created will be gone by the time they retire.

Postal Service? It's called Snail Mail for a reason. When publishers or publicists send me books by potential guests on my radio program, I usually request they send the book by UPS or FedEx because when sent by mail, more than half the time I receive empty envelopes, and a postal clerk that blames it on the neighborhood kids - by the way, my wife watches when the mail is delivered and retrieves it immediately.

Veteran's Administration? It took the VA 6 months to come up with a diagnosis that my private doctor, and team of specialists, diagnosed in two weeks.

IRS? Puhleeeeze! The IRS is the legalized criminal strong-arm of the U.S. Government that believes it is above the law. Like that is what the Founding Fathers intended.

Great Comment

In addition to Political Pistachio dot com, all of my articles on this site appear in many other locations around the web as well. One of those places is my facebook account where I received the following comment about a recent article I wrote:

Mary N. made a comment about your note "A Tactic of Misdirection":

I can't be alone when I say I am tired of being told I am rioting because I don't approve of a Gov't controlled health care system. And I can't be alone when it insults me to have my own President apoligizing to other nations for the actions of us-the American people. Since when did we become the problem child? Or is it the Gov't realizes that "the people" won't just roll over by a group of leaders that should be acting in our best interest but instead, want to take a perfectly good country and destroy it. Our President should be making speeches about how great it is to be an American instead of telling others how wrong our actions are. The only thing this great nation did that was wrong was vote him into office.

Thanks, Mary, and you are exactly right.

Lockerbie Bomber Release Cruel to Families of Victims

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The release of Abdel Beset al-Megrahi, the Libyan terrorist convicted of killing 270 people in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, by Scotland’s Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, was unbelievably cruel to the families of the victims of that flight.

MacAskill claimed the release was for humanitarian reasons, since al-Megrahi suffers from a terminal case of prostate cancer. The Scottish judiciary decided they wished to be kind to the murderer of 270 people, and let him die of his cancer at home.

I wonder how surprised MacAskill was when Libya welcomed al-Megrahi home like he was some kind of hero.

I also wonder if, since he's going to die anyway, if al-Megrahi will be strapping on a suicide belt for one last terrorist action some time soon.

Terminally-ill al-Megrahi shouldn't even have gotten the opportunity to contract cancer. He should have been executed years ago.

The message the release of this animal sends to terrorists is that if you get caught, they will still be able to be a terrorist again someday in the future.


This is an example of why The West is incapable of defending itself against an Islamic enemy that is determined to dominate the world, no matter how long it takes, and no matter how many deceptions they must perpetuate.

Obama's Bigger Deficit Projected

By Douglas V. Gibbs

At a time when the Obama Administration is losing ground in the approval category, in a large part for their excessive spending habits, the White House has now come out with a projection that the exploding debt will be larger than originally thought (and this is probably a low estimate).

The White House budget office is expecting a $9 trillion deficit from 2010-2019. This projection exceeds the estimate released last May, which was $2 trillion less.

They are proclaiming the reason for the additional spending is because this recession is worse than the information that they had back last fall and early this winter.

But, but, I thought they were saying just recently that Obama saved us. The recession is nearly over, they said.

Hmmmm. The recession is bad when they proclaim they need to spend a couple trillion bucks more (and of course it is all Bush's fault), and the recession is nearly over when the Democrats need to do something about Obama's dropping approval numbers.

I smell a rat.

And of course, for Obama, this is a bad time to tell the public that he is spending way too much - as he tries to convince everyone he needs to spend even more on a horrific health care plan that is thought by the opposition to be yet another socialist nail in the coffin of the private sector.

Remember, too, these are the same people that were beside themselves over Bush's spending tendencies, which now seems like a pot hole compared to the crater of spending Obama has created.

A Tactic of Misdirection

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The differential between those that strongly disapprove (40%) and those that strongly approve (29%) with Obama's presidency is worsening for the Democrats. More and more folks realize that the "Cash For Clunkers" is a failure in so many ways. The health care debate continues to go from bad to worse for the Democrats. Other signs of Democrat Party's collapse is rising up into the public's line of vision, as well, as evidenced by the fact that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trailing his top Republican challenger by 11 points. The Left is feeling the need to do something quickly to stop the free-fall. The Statists do not understand how it could be possible that the American People does not approve of their big government agenda. The dissent is getting out of control. Heck, the Democrat faithful is even demanding Kennedy step down so that they can get an able-bodied Leftist in there (and they're even willing to deceptively change the laws, again, to make it happen!).

In short, they are falling back on a dirty tactic that worked beautifully before, and they hope will stop the bleeding now.

The demonization of, and constant attacks on, the George W. Bush Administration was one of the most successful tactics that got the liberal left into the White House, while also helping them gain control of Congress. Their constant pounding of the Bush Administration's choice of going to war, coupled with well placed embellishments on Bush's alleged lack of ability to serve as President of the United States, and of course heart-wrenching horror stories (regardless of the truth) about people suffering at the hands of the Republicans (those suffering people usually being terrorists that have killed Americans), made the American Public weary of war, and convinced the voters that Bush (and his Republican Party) was the epitome of incompetence. So, since the Democrat's devious, and deceptive, tactic worked so well once before, they are calling on the tactic once again - but this time to be used as misdirection, as well.

The desperate action of a political party in serious trouble.

On top of all that, the investigations will be supervised directly by the White House. Talk about doing whatever it takes to be in control.

The misdirection part of the plan is designed to push further Obama's distance from the Bush administration detainee policies, because people have been noticing Obama acting a lot like the hated Bush when it comes to his National Security efforts.

The CIA interrogation plan, hoping to soil a few more folks that had ties to the Bush Administration, is a sign of how stupid this Obama Administration truly is. They don't get it. They do not understand that their win in 2008 was not about the country moving Left, but about their deceptive face they showed the American People. Obama campaigned on conservative-sounding promises. Now, America is becoming wise to the lies of the Left. Secondly, the Democrat's Congressional majority is not a majority, no matter how much they wish to strut around proclaiming it is.

The liberal base can't figure the Democrats out. Their policies are failing. They can't get the votes, and it has nothing to do with the GOP. They have the votes. There are enough Democrats to pass the Health Care Bill, and all of their other wet dream bills. So why is the agenda failing? Why can't Obama and friends close the deals?

A bunch of Democrats have broken ranks.

Those Democrats were never in their ranks in the first place. Most of the seats won by the Democrats in 2008 were by conservative Democrats, some of which are more conservative than their liberal Republican opposition (a.k.a. Moderates). On top of that, the liberal left's policies are even more radical than most of the base wants. A lot of those Town Hall protesters were Democrats. People who voted for Obama were out there shouting for his head. They are losing their base, and they are collapsing the Democratic Party, and they don't even realize it.

The Leftists in power, now, are attacking their constituents, calling them extremists and members of the rightwing fringe for showing up at Tea Parties, and shouting the Democrats down at Town Hall meetings. And now they are literally at each other's throats, as well. The Leftists have shown their true face, and the public is rejecting it. Then, when faced with opposition, rather than recognize their radical agenda, they blame it all on the moderates, the media, and them damn extremist GOP conservatives.

The lunatics are doing whatever they can to shift the blame, not realizing that they are actually the fringe. They are the bad guys. They are the ones trying to change the American Form of Government into something the people do not desire, and something the Founding Fathers never intended. And their failure has the far left crazies that follow them up in arms, demanding action, wondering why they can't get their agenda in place. The Obama faithful don't understand why the Obama Administration can't deliver, when in the end it is because they don't have the votes, or the support.

Interrogating the CIA, and looking for more shadows in the dark when it comes to how the agents treated the enemy, is an attempt to get things back on track for the Democratic Party. The Left intends to create hate against their political opponents, and to make the American public hate the military more than they hate socialism.

By villainizing the CIA, and the military that was willing to serve under Bush, the Democrats will create a portrayal of Al-Qaeda that the terrorists are somehow victims. This is what the Left wants. They want the public opinion to have pity for those poor Al-Qaeda and Taliban "freedom fighters." They desire the United States to be seen as the big bad imperialistic perpetrator so that Obama can do some more apologizing for America. They think if they can get the Bush Administration to look like a bunch of warmongers again, it will show the Left to be peace loving, high ground taking saints - and perhaps during all of the anger, you will no longer notice what they are doing to America.

The American Public is wiser than that. The people know that the Obama Administration is reaching for straws. They realize that the Democrats are trying to demonize a past president once again in order to cause them to avert their eyes from the debacle of Obama's health care mess.

Iraq and Afghanistan are on Obama's watch, now. Trying to go back and rattle a few skeletons will do nothing but expose more of the Obama Administration's incompetence. They are trying to convince the people that America was a torturing nation, but the implements in question are now in the hands of the Democrats. The National Security responsibilities belong to them, and they have changed little when it comes to the techniques used by the Bush Administration.

Promises to their constituents have not been fulfilled. Gitmo isn't closed as Obama promised, secret wire-tapping hasn't stopped, and Afghanistan is becoming more of a mess than the Democrats were ever able to convince the public Iraq had become. Meanwhile, they wish to treat the blood-thirsty enemy with kid gloves, reading them Miranda Rights, and acting as if the Islamists are criminals, rather than hardened terrorists that desire that we all die because we won't believe there is no other god than Allah.

Americans are tired of the Left painting the United States as the villain. The American People also realize the the Bush Administration is now in the past. Despite what the liberal left believes, Bush and Cheney are no longer important to people. But when it comes down to it, the GOP is only the tool the Left is using. In reality, it is all about demonizing America. They desire that America be the villain so that they can convince everyone that the American Form of Government must be changed, and that they are just the Marxists to do it. Once they convince Americans of that, the socialist policies should come easy.

Eric Holder choosing to appoint a prosecutor to examine a dozen cases, or so, of CIA interrogators and contractors supposedly violating anti-torture laws, is simply designed to cause you to avert your eyes from the Left's failures and socialistic policies. They wish to use this to demonize America so that it looks like Obama still needs to make changes. This also gives them the chance to hammer on a few Republicans they hate, meanwhile providing them with the opportunity to project that hate upon the rightwing extremists that dare mount an opposition to the Left in Tea Parties and Town Hall Meetings (even though much of that dissent is also by people that voted for Obama as well). And ultimately, they are doing this so that you forget about the Health Care bill. The Democrats figure if you become angry about America under Bush again, the base will gather at anti-GOP rallies, and any unrest about the Health Care bill will be forgotten. Then, with a little luck, they will jam it through, and force it on the American People before anyone knows what hit them.

It is no accident, also, that this is happening just before 9/11. With all of the hate floating around, maybe you won't notice they've decided to change the meaning of September 11th, as well, desecrating it into a day of celebration of leftist ideals. Then, perhaps, you will also forget that the United States has been free from al-Qaeda attacks since the attacks on 9/11/2001.

Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts Dies

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Dead at 77, Teddy Kennedy now joins his brothers, President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who were felled by assassins’ bullets in their 40s.

Mr. Kennedy served 46 years in the U.S. Senate, and is probably one of the most recognizable names in politics when it comes to Democrats in the Senate. Mr. Kennedy’s diagnosis of a lethal brain tumor did not slow him down. He continued his duties as U.S. Senator, and though I disagreed with his political positions, I respect his longevity, and determination.

The memory of Edward Kennedy's legacy in the Democratic Party will no doubt outlive many of us.

The youngest of nine Kennedy children Edward grew up around politics. Rose Kennedy once remarked "My babies were rocked to political lullabies." When Edward Kennedy was born, President Herbert Hoover sent Rose a bouquet of flowers and a note of congratulations.

Edward Kennedy graduated in 1956 with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard. He then enrolled in the University of Virginia School of Law, where his brother Robert studied. There, Edward took a degree in 1959.

Teddy's older brother, John F. Kennedy, won the presidential election in 1960, leaving vacant a Senate seat that the family considered its property. Robert Kennedy was next in line, but chose the post of attorney general instead. Younger Edward was only 28, two years shy of the minimum age of 30 for Senate service.

While Edward Kennedy waited for his thirtieth birthday, and a special election, the Senate seat was held by a close family friend, Benjamin A. Smith II. During the two years Edward needed to wait, he traveled the world and worked as an assistant district attorney in Boston, waiving the $5,000 salary and serving instead for $1 a year.

In 1962, Mr. Kennedy declared his candidacy for the remaining two years of his brother's Senate term. He battled Edward J. McCormack Jr. in a bitter fight, but won in the end.

A stubborn competitor, it is a surprise Edward didn't last longer against the foe that took his life. He fought against the brain tumor in the same manner he fought against all other opponents - with everything he had.

The political landscape has lost a loud voice, and a patriarch of the Democratic Party.

Good bye, Mr. Kennedy. It has been an interesting ride.

Athens Fire Still Ablaze

By Douglas V. Gibbs

In Greece the worst fire since 2007 continues to burn, fueled by strong winds and hot temperatures. Behind it is the path of destruction of forestry, and ahead of it the evacuations of hospitals, camp grounds, retirement homes, and communities.

The fire risk remains "extremely high" while flames are igniting in new areas as the winds carry the glowing embers across the landscape. There have been no casualties, and the property damage cost remains unknown. Dozens of homes have been damaged, and a state of emergency was declared three days ago.

The fire is approaching the city of Athens, which has a population of 4.5 million. The evacuations have been in the tens of thousands of people.

Global Government, International Swine Flu Conference Implications, Controlling the Populace Through Quarantines

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The elitists of the leftist global order would like to take your kids from you. They plan to take advantage of mass quarantines and mass vaccinations to do this, if we let them. H1N1 is the global emergency they've been waiting for, a catastrophe engineered over generations, carefully prepared by powerful and influential globalists to take the next step in controlling the population.

Are we getting ready to be forced to face mandatory Government Orders to get vaccinated with the H1N1 Vaccine? Are we on the verge of total Government Control over our lives while they claim it is simply to keep us safe from the rising epidemic? Could the government use quarantine to take control of political dissidents?

The big government elite recently discussed how to carry out mass vaccinations, mass quarantines, and mass power of the government over the people in an International Swine Flu Conference that ended only four days ago!

Did you hear anything about this conference in the news? Did television news magazines discuss it? Have any of the newspapers reported on it?

Just like the secrets behind the vaccinations, the hidden agenda behind the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and the global aspirations of the global leftist elite, the mass media has no intention of allowing the truth to leak out.

The CDC and the government leftist elitists have been warning of worldwide outbreaks of some kind of disease for years. They have been working on the next pandemic that will "decimate humanity." They desire an outbreak that will make the 1918 Spanish Flu look small.

They hoped the Avian Flu was that outbreak.

Reminding you of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" yet?

Now, H1N1 (Swine Flu) has become the leftist's promised vehicle towards controlling the worldwide populace. According to the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control, the H1N1 Swine Flu is a global pandemic that that has killed 700 people worldwide.

How is that a pandemic? The regular flu in America kills 35,000 annually. The Spanish Flu in 1918 killed 50 million. So the question arises, is the Swine Flu an out of control pandemic, or do they just hope it will become one?

The Spanish Flu killed more than did the Black Plague, and it turned out to be the result of our government secretly experimenting on our own American troops. The disease originated at a military base in central Kansas (Fort Riley). A soldier came down with a fever that infected 100 others before the day had the opportunity to end.

Even then, the attempt by man to play God in an attempt to achieve control over the populace was alive and well.

Ever since that moment there have been stories after stories of vaccines triggering diseases that have become detrimental to our society. For example, reports surfaced that the HIV/AIDS disease activated through the smallpox vaccine. Many proclaimed it to be a deliberate act that is a part of the depopulation agenda.

The Swine Flu Vaccine that will be injected into your arm in October (so they say, and if you allow it) has been linked to a brain disorder. In Germany the vaccine has been linked to cancer. And this is the material they want to inject into the bodies of everyone worldwide in a massive global vaccination being demanded by the World Health Organization. The vaccine was allegedly magically conjured up in a matter of months by Baxter Pharmaceuticals. The truth is, Baxter applied for the swine flu vaccination patents in 2008, long before any breakouts were even confirmed.

Statistics link autism and other diseases to vaccines, as well. These government-proclaimed and corporate attempts to protect us from disease have become more about the all mighty dollar, and control of the population, than about protecting the populace. With the attention the H1N1 vaccine is getting, the feeling I am quickly realizing is that it is going to be mandatory. Should I refuse to be vaccinated, what will be my penalty? Will I receive treatment from the government similar to that a criminal would receive? Would I be hunted down, treated, and quarantined?

In 1976 a similar scene of the government sanctioning our local schools to mass vaccinate our children took place. It was in response to a similar flu scare, and in the end more people died from the vaccine than from the actual flu virus.

More evidence that the flu epidemic is either engineered, or being created through hype in the hopes one will surface, surfaces when you realize that the CDC and FEMA have purchased hundreds of thousands of plastic coffins. Why would the government purchase so many coffins? Could it be that the government has been planning on this coming epidemic of global proportions for a long time, just waiting for the right outbreak to appear? Or is the outbreak coming due to careful planning? Going back to my mention of a depopulation agenda, could it be that they would like to purge society of its extra population, and allow the government to create a police state in the guise of protecting us from the panic over the flu? Internationalists are using the state of fear to create an environment that will ultimately give them the ability to take control of the entire worldwide population.

This clears up a lot of data we've been seeing regarding the creation of internment camps, and the National Guard's recent push for hiring "Internment Specialists." H.R. 645 calls for six internment camps to be built on the property of U.S. military installations. The Pentagon has made a request for 400,000 troops to be deployed to American soil.

Could it be for quarantine? Are they expecting H1N1 riots? Are they expecting those crazy rightwingers on their watch list to react to their sudden seizure of power? Will these troops and internment camps be used to hold members of the populace that refuse the vaccination, and ultimately to house political dissidents?

Civic unrest over the panic of a pandemic is what they desire, even if they have to create such a scenario through the media and well placed lies, in turn inducing hysteria and panic. It creates the perfect storm for martial law. It allows the government the perfect opportunity to take control of the populace, under the guise of protecting the people from themselves, and a rampant flu. And in the process, the opportunity to round up those deemed to be a threat by the Homeland Security Report (you know, those rightwing extremists) will be easily taken advantage of.

Individuals have become the enemies of the state. The threat of a flu killing millions is now on the minds of the populace constantly. The message is being perpetuated by the biased lap-dog media, and is being accepted by the global population blindly. The result will be the excuse to create a police state orchestrated by the government, and ultimately, by worldwide organizations like The United Nations, or an organization poised to replace the U.N. with greater powers, and wider controls and authority.

The United Nations, or the UN's replacement on the horizon, armed with the support of the Obama Administration, and the rest of the big government leftist bureaucrats, will then have us right where they want us.

Isn't it interesting that this coincides with a financial collapse? Isn't it interesting that all of this is happening as the forces calling for a new world order are at their loudest? Isn't it interesting this is happening as the Obama Administration, along with the far left Democrats, are poised to change the American Form of Government into a socialistic nightmare that the Bolsheviks would be proud of (without ever having to fire a shot)?

As terrorists attack population centers, violence again erupts in Iraq and various other places around the Middle East, as violent crime rates escalate, as leftist elitists position themselves for control of the populace, and the hysteria of Climate Change has everyone afraid that the sky is falling, and as the worldwide leaders create the illusion that out of control disease plagues the world, the populace will cry out for "Peace and Security." And the government will provide that peace and security. All you have to do is trade in your liberty.

The frightening scenario presented here, however, is not a forgone conclusion. Individuals standing up for liberty, and combatting the rise of big government, can stop this.

Be loud. Be aware. Ask questions. Demand liberty.

San Mateo School Thwarts Columbine-Style Attack

By Douglas V. Gibbs

A seventeen year old set off two pipe bombs, and was trying to start a chainsaw, setting off an evacuation at San Mateo Hillsdale High School. Armed with a sword, and eight more pipe bombs strapped to his body, the Columbine-style plot was stopped short as police apprehended the teen.

After the two bombs went off, the teen was confronted by teachers. After he fled, a third teacher caught up to him and tackled him. The suspect was held down by the third teacher who was later assisted by the school principal.

No one was hurt when the explosions went off, and take careful notice that no gun was found.

Perhaps now the Left will try to outlaw pipes and chainsaws.

Desecration of 9/11

By Matthew Vadum

The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.

This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.

H.R. 2159: Democrat Gun Grab

When the Department of Homeland Security, under the guiding eyes of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and gang, determined in a report that people with conservative beliefs are potential Domestic Terrorists, it was alarming.

When in May I came across H.R. 2159: Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009, I was alarmed. Not because I don't want terrorists to be denied firearms and explosives, but because by using the Department of Homeland Security report, the government could effectively remove all firearms from the majority of Americans with a simple accusation.

The sinister bill has been slowly working its way through Congress, having the last activity on June 12 when it was referred to a House Committee.

A similar bill was introduced in the Senate in 2007, but never made it out of committee.

After the DHS Report, another document, the "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" surfaced. It adds more suspected domestic terrorists to the government's list of enemies, including people working in the alternative media, pro-life activists, "decentralized" terrorists, and others.

Hmmm, that sounds a lot like me.

Distributed to federal, state, local, and tribal counter terrorism and law enforcement officials, these reports are supposed to help deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States.

Or, they can help facilitate the rounding up of political dissidents.

One example of over-zealous Obama-lovers acting against anyone daring to seem like they may be "anti-government" was when a man was stopped and detained in Louisiana for displaying a "Don’t tread one me" bumper sticker on his car. A background check found the man not to be a member of an "extremist" group, but the very fact that he was pulled over in the first place is despicable.

"Don’t tread on me" has its roots in the American Revolution where it was originally displayed on a flag designed by general and statesman Christopher Gadsden during the Revolutionary War. The leftists in power, however, see it as a terrorist symbol in their Department of Homeland Security "Rightwing Extremist" report. "Don't Tread On Me" is an announcement of liberty, and the rejection of a controlling government - and the Democrats can't have that kind of dissent.

How many conservatives are on Obama's "watch lists" designated as domestic terrorists? If H.R. 159 becomes law, will the Obama administration and the Justice Department go after opponents to their policies, and disarm them in the process? Will they use H.R. 2159 to disarm law-abiding citizens for daring to stand up and speak out against the Left's fascist aims?

Will the U.S. Constitution be deemed a document that foments domestic terrorism, and be outlawed too?

The death of America by the hands of the leftist Democrats will be avoided if we continue to remain strong, and continue to pressure government into abandoning their aim for a strong, central, socialistic government through rallies, letters, phone calls, and all other means of getting our message out to them, and our fellow Americans.

A Joke About Leftism That Says It All

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel " pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the promised land".

Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, " Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the promised land".

Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels, and mortgaged the promised land.

Leftist Drivel - Liberal Mental Disorder

By Douglas V. Gibbs

I sometimes have the silly notion, when debating members of the Left, that these people "think." I forget that these liberal leftists are so invested in their selfish desires, and justifying whatever lunacy they have signed on to, that they are incapable of recognizing the truth even if it hit them in the face.

Liberal Tom, an obsessed leftist reader of Political Pistachio is a prime example of this kind of poor soul that has been so deceived by the creeping incrementalism that has taken hold of America that they are unable to distinguish between their butt and a hole in the ground.

Lately, just for fun, I have published some of his comments. He thinks I don't publish them, normally, because I can't handle his arguments. In reality, it is usually because his offerings are usually so idiotic I just don't have the time to dissect, and respond to each wrong point.

People like Tom constantly lie, misread facts, or just don't understand the obvious.

They are not looking for sense, they are searching for something to attack. When he reads my posts he could care less about the truth - it is his goal to try to find something to pin on the wall and somehow use for a shocking revelation that may look like his lunacy somehow deserves some kind of validation.

For example, when I wrote about amnesty, his response was how horrible it was that I would send back to Mexico the parents of the anchor babies who are citizens and would remain behind. I never suggested splitting the families up. The kids can leave too. They are more than welcome to join their parent on the bus home where they belong.

I have no problem with immigration. Immigrants make this nation great. Illegal immigrants who have no intention of contributing to the melting pot, however, are a stain that needs to be removed, and sent back to where they belong.

The Fourteenth Amendment was written with emancipated slaves in mind, and was designed to ensure those slaves born in the U.S. were citizens. A child, born of two foreigners who are in the country illegally, is hardly a citizen. The parents are illegal. Therefore, the birth in the U.S. is illegal. Never, in a million years, would the Founding Fathers have supported a woman running across the border to have a child just in time so that the kid could be a citizen and sponsor the whole family to come over who has no intention of being Americans, but only to take advantage of unconstitutional government entitlements.

You have to understand, these people who worship the Left are so deceived that they are unable to recognize the obvious. The indoctrination goes so deep that they are unable to reason.

Such as when I agreed with a Town Hall protester when he declared Nazis to be a bunch of leftists. Tom thought that was an example of revising history. But, all one has to do is think (of which the Left doesn't do) and the answer is obvious. The Nazi Party was the party of National Socialism. Socialism being the key word. They believed that the government should have an increased role in the life of the citizens. Government control over the people was the platform of the Nazi Party, including a take over of the health care system.

When applied to the Political Spectrum, of which the far right represents no government, and the far left is total government, it is easy to see that Nazism was a leftist ideology that inhabited a spot on the political spectrum far to the left of the center line.

The leftists in America have been so indoctrinated into believing that any kind of nationalism is somehow a conservative trait, that they are firm believers that Nazis and Skin Heads, are somehow on the Right. The fact that they believe in a complete takeover by government seems not to be a factor.

Also, anything that involves religion is conservative too, according to the Leftists, regardless of the religion.

Therefore, the Left sees Islamism as conservative.

But think about the leftist characteristics of the Islamic political ideology (that masks itself as a religion). Islam believes in controlling the people through a theocratic government - and few ideologies are more leftist than theocracies. Total control of the people through a government that uses religious fervor to solidify that control is even more leftist than the liberals. Yet, these small minded lefties actually believe that Islamism is conservative.

Writing this piece, ultimately, is pretty useless, because people like Tom mindlessly follow the marching orders that have been pounded into their brain, and he will no doubt write an opposition piece that basically barks the leftist marching orders. People like Tom are unable to stop and think long enough to realize the truth of the matter. He has been trained well by the Left.

"Roll over, sit, bark. . . Good Boy!"

It is amazing, really, because almost everything he accuses the right of being, in reality is is often guilty of.

But like I said earlier, I often make the false assumption that these people think. The more I get to know their thought patterns, the more I realize the lights are on, but nobody is home.

I pray for him, anyhow. You never know. The light may come on someday - maybe as a result of being exposed to the truth as he is every day by reading my writings.

One can hope.
