This is no time to let our guard down, but the great countermoonbat Lord Monckton has some good news regarding the fizzling of the international green Marxist movement at Rio+20:
Now the bad news: American courts have been upholding the collapsing global warming hoax as a pretext for authoritarianism at a national level. The Supreme Court can hardly be counted on to defend us.

W will never live down his supposed misdeeds regarding Katrina, so let’s not forget about the appalling incompetence of Obama’s response to Deepwater Horizon, which was acknowledged at the time even by the Moonbat Messiah’s amen corner in the liberal media:

General Taco (an acronym for Taking All Capitalists Out) spreads more of the inter-racially harmonious sweetness and light for which his New Black Panther Party is well known. After advocating that Caucasians be hunted down and killed, he proclaims:
“Once [white people] die, we should dig ‘em up, and kill ‘em again, bury ‘em, dig ‘em up, and kill ‘em again, and again, and again!”
As for where the welfare checks will come from when all the white people have been killed and killed again, apparently General Taco is content to cross that bridge when he comes to it.

Don’t imagine they don’t know what they are doing to our country. Check out the look of pure satanic malice on the face of the Redistributor in Chief as he signed away our healthcare system, surrounded by socialist rats:
Whatever America did to earn their hatred, liberals are certainly taking their revenge.

Rather than try to get amnesty for millions upon millions of illegal aliens through the legislature, Obama has found it more convenient to simply ram amnesty through piecemeal with executive orders and policy dictates. His high-handed moonbattery will also prove convenient for the high percentage of illegal aliens who collect welfare benefits:
Federal officials have 60 days to prepare for an onslaught of young illegal immigrants eager to apply for “deferred” deportation and work permits under the recently announced Obama administration directive that could affect up to 800,000 people living in the U.S. …
State officials, too, are preparing for a shift because those working under temporary work permits can receive Colorado unemployment insurance if they lose their job through no fault of their own.
That is, illegal aliens now officially qualify to get paid for not having a job. They can make much more money sponging off others in the USA than they could working their tails off back in their own country.
The red carpet our quisling rulers have rolled out couldn’t get much plusher. For the sake of energy conservation, the last one out of Mexico is requested to please turn off the lights.

Because there is no higher authority than the Supreme Court, whatever it says is true — no matter how absurd. If a majority of the Supremes decide that ObamaCare is constitutional, then it is, 9th and 10th Amendments be damned. Decorum has been damned too, as Demorrhoids celebrate the big victory for authoritarian collectivism.
The ACORN/SEIU-affiliated Patrick Gaspard was National Political Director of Obama’s 2008 campaign, and now serves as Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee. In light of John Roberts’s seeming defection to the court’s left wing and the subsequent upholding of ObamaCare, Gaspard reached across the aisle with this less than gracious tweet:
“it’s constitutional. Bitches.”
At least now we can drop the working-together-to-find-middle-ground road apple. The Democrat Party and its allies are completely devoted to dragging America down into socialism, with all the poverty and tyranny that will inevitably entail. All of us worthy to call ourselves Americans must be completely devoted to stopping them.
By grinding their arrogant authoritarianism in the country’s face, Obama, Gaspard, et al. are laying the groundwork for patriots to turn this into a Pyrrhic victory for the internal enemies our Constitution was intended to defend us against.

Now that turncoat justice John Roberts has handed over control of the healthcare system to the federal bureaucracy, the next question for Democrats is how to use it to eradicate resistance to their triumphant ideology. For example, “racism” isn’t a matter of learning from experience; it is a disease to be cured. Appropriate research is already underway:
A research review from neuroscientists is further supporting the theory that racism — at least a component of it — is innate and therefore could be treated.
Neuroscientist Elizabeth Phelps from New York University and her colleagues evaluated 17 different brain studies and expounded upon research she published more than a decade ago that first showed race preferences could be linked to brain activity. Phelps, who was interviewed by the journal Nature, explained that the area of the brain that detects race also is closely tied to an emotional response. She explains that even in people who have the [politically] correct intentions — are “motivated to be non-prejudiced” — a part of the brain picks up on unintentional racist responses while another part of the brain regulates these responses as you choose not to act upon them. …
Believing that the ”neural circuitry of race, emotion and decision-making” overlaps, the researchers in the study state further studies could evaluate how to “recognize and respond to variations in race and its influence on unintended race-based attitudes and decisions.” Earlier this year, for example, a study by another group found that giving test subjects a blood-pressure lowering drug reduced subconscious racism.
According to The Australian, neuroscientist Anthony Harris with Sydney University agreed that testing how to “treat” inherent racism was next up for neurological studies.
This will be followed by studies on how to “treat” resistance to high levels of taxation.

We knew better than to entrust our liberty to the statist oligarchs on the Supreme Court, didn’t we?
The ObamaCare power grab absolutely must be repealed before it becomes entrenched. This means that Republicans must take control of both houses of Congress as well as the White House. It is no exaggeration to say our nation is at stake. Socialized medicine not only destroyed healthcare in Britain but reduced it to a second-rate country; it will do the same to us.

Our rulers will keep fighting with our money until there isn’t any more, but the War on Poverty is over. Poverty won:
Federal welfare spending in fiscal year 2011 totaled $668 billion, spread out over 126 programs, while the poverty rate remains high at 15.1 percent, roughly where it was in 1965, when President Johnson declared a federal War on Poverty.
In 1966, the first year after Johnson declared war on poverty, the national poverty rate was 14.7 percent, according to Census Bureau figures.
Trillions of dollars have been poured down this rat hole. In return we received festering ghettos full of rot. Oh, and Democrats received a solid voter base.
As with all forms of destructive spending, Obama has been jacking it through the roof, characteristically producing no constructive result.
In fiscal year 2008, anti-poverty spending was $475 billion. In fiscal year 2009, when Obama took office, it had risen to $590 billion.
It must all be the fault of the recession allegedly caused by his predecessor, right? Wrong.
[A]ccording to the administration’s own projections, federal welfare spending is unlikely to decline even after the economy recovers — further evidence that not all of the increase in spending is recession-related.
“All this spending has not bought an appreciable reduction in poverty,” the study says. “[T]he poverty rate has remained relatively constant since 1965, despite rising welfare spending.”
Lavishly subsidizing poverty and using confiscatory taxation to punish people for working does not reduce poverty. Who would have guessed?

Journalist Natasha Smith learns why a country that has just been taken over by Islamists isn’t the best place for Western women to be seen on the streets:
The atmosphere was one of jubilation, excitement, and happiness as I walked, accompanied by two male companions for safety along Kasr El Nil bridge. I had had an awful day, caused by problems in personal relationships, so I was so happy to be in such a wonderful environment, getting such amazing footage. Women, children and fathers smiled, waved, and cheered happily at the camera, calling out the widely used phrase “welcome to Egypt! Welcome!”. Fireworks lit up the sky. It was a moving and captivating experience.
Just as I realised I had reached the end of the bridge, I noticed the crowd became thicker, and decided immediately to turn around to avoid Tahrir Square. My friends and I tried to leave. I tried to put my camera back in my rucksack.
But in a split second, everything changed. Men had been groping me for a while, but suddenly, something shifted. I found myself being dragged from my male friend, groped all over, with increasing force and aggression. I screamed. I could see what was happening and I saw that I was powerless to stop it. I couldn’t believe I had got into this situation.
My friend did everything he could to hold onto me. But hundreds of men were dragging me away, kicking and screaming. I was pushed onto a small platform as the crowd surged, where I was hunched over, determined to protect my camera. But it was no use. My camera was snatched from my grasp. My rucksack was torn from my back – it was so crowded that I didn’t even feel it. The mob stumbled off the platform – I twisted my ankle.
Men began to rip off my clothes. I was stripped naked. Their insatiable appetite to hurt me heightened. These men, hundreds of them, had turned from humans to animals.
Hundreds of men pulled my limbs apart and threw me around. They were scratching and clenching my breasts and forcing their fingers inside me in every possible way. So many men. All I could see was leering faces, more and more faces sneering and jeering as I was tossed around like fresh meat among starving lions. … I was dragged naked across the dirty ground. Men pulled my blonde hair — a beacon of my alien identity.
How would you expect hardcore Muslims to celebrate their triumphant Arab Spring? Pretending it is the Religion of Peace may make liberals feel good about themselves, but it won’t make evil less savage.

During W’s presidency, I once heard a Democrat gasp in all seriousness that the mild-mannered, politically moderate advisor Karl Rove might declare martial law, setting himself up as dictator. The bizarre phenomenon of Rovophobia continues among hardcore moonbats even now as a result of Rove’s fundraising efforts — although not all the zombies comprising liberal mobs even know who Karl Rove is:
Organized protesters set out to counter the issue of money in politics while marching over a mile through Washington DC last week. The heat index was a blistering 90 degrees, which seemed to add to the marchers’ aggression for their target, former Bush Administration Senior Adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove. …
Many of the protesters took issue with the success of Rove’s 501c4, stating it should be “illegal” even though they were themselves proud representatives of 501c4s. This conflation begs the question: Do these organized protesters even know why they are marching? Or do they even know who they are marching against?

It’s not nice for clerks to oppress the underprivileged by refusing to accept EBT cards for their cigarettes. One in New Hampshire has been punished:
Jackie Whiton, a six-year employee of the Big Apple, said she was fired after a dispute with her boss over accepting EBT cards as payment for cigarettes.
“I gave two weeks’ notice and tried to bow out gracefully,” said Whiton, of Antrim. “But the next day, I was fired.”
Whiton said she declined to accept an EBT card as payment for a package of cigarettes. The Electronic Benefit Transfer cards are used by state benefits departments to issue cash to recipients, and they can be used like debit cards.
Whiton said her boss told her she can’t refuse to sell beer and cigarettes to customers, because, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, EBT or state assistance money can be used to purchase tobacco products.
Let Jackie Whiton serve as an example of what happens to those who would stand athwart the glorious path to collectivist utopia.
Now for an R-rated public service announcement on the benefits of EBT cards:
