    As Richard Wurmbrand revealed in his book, Marx And Satan, the leftist agenda is actually guided by satanists (and useful idiots) seeking to destroy all of Western Civilization and replace it with their depraved anti-God utopia.

    Read the Bible and see that God will give them what they want. All the more reason to get right with God now.

    Obama using fake Twitter messages in fight over gun control

    President Obama’s gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter.

    Just as they did on election day, Obama and the Democrats are flooding twitter with pro gun control messages from people who do not exist.

    Rep. Steve Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people. “The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist.

    Stockman also added that only one of the six tweets from real people is a constituent of his in Texas.

    Obama bemoans “careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis” RE: His & other Demcorats repeated manufactured sequestration crises.

    You know, here’s what Congress needs to do: Pass a law that says staring in the 2014 fiscal year all budgets for all government offices and functions are zero until further notice, then pass line item by line item bills to re-fund JUST those things that are necessary.

    The Department of Education has a post up about the sequester and how bad the cuts will be. But what post is right before it? A new grant; a new spending program.

    Yes. As the left hand cuts the right hand spends.

    Scooby SNAPs: New York organization offers ‘Pet Food Stamps’

    “The Pet Food Stamps program … has been created to fill the void in the United States Food Stamp program which excludes the purchase of pet food and pet supplies. In these rough economic times, many pet owners are forced to abandon their beloved pet to the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League or other animal shelters due to the inability to pay for their basic food supply and care,”

    Islam and the concept of legitimate jihad.

    Posted this on an ealier thread – it apparently struck a nerve with at least one of the anti-law enforcement, anti-military neofascist voices pretending to be a conservative here on Moonbattery.

    Some classic N.W.A. from-back-in-da-day, exercising their First Amendment rights:

    Pretty much describes the mood on Moonbattery these days.

    Between TV, burrowing down into the basement with dry goods, sports talk radio and nonstop praying – while the left works relentlessly – I don’t know what you guys expected to happen.

  21. OnlyImportantThing says:

    Good gravy… you people act like you are somehow under attack, when the only thing that really is in jeopardy these days is our economy… courtesy of the Tea Party fools.

    What has Obama proposed, and what does the GOP want?

    As I understand it, the GOP has five basic goals in the budget talks – which are, again, the only actually important thing happening these days.
    1) Cut the deficit.
    2) Cut entitlement spending.
    3) Protect defense spending, and possibly even increase it.
    4) Simplify the tax code by cleaning out deductions and loopholes.
    5) Lower tax rates.

    So, Obama has proposed a process that accomplish 1,2,3,4. The Tea Party says “no”. So, we get the sequester in 2 days. At which point, nobody (Tea Party or otherwise) gets anything. The economy will crater, the deficit will balloon, the DoD will still get slashed, and of course all of the ‘entitlements’ that go along with a massive increase in poverty will rise as well. SO… uber-fail. Gee thanks, Tea Party.

    All so Mitt Romney and his fellow plutocrats don’t have to pay the tax rate I pay. Way to stick up for the people that really need it, eh?

    … and you think an ‘assault on marriage’ is relevant enough to spend time on? You think there is some magic way to overturn Roe v Wade by whining about it? Or… just maybe… you should pay attention to the important things, instead.

    The GOP refuses to govern. They are bad for America. And so are each and every one of you.

  22. StanInTexas says:

    So let me get this straight, OIT…

    1) Obama proposes sequestration
    2) Obama threatens to veto ANYTHING that tries to stop or block sequestration
    3) The Republicans (who have been labeled obstructionists for years) decide to go along with Obama and support sequestration
    4) Obama sees the Republicans supporting his plan and IMMEDIATELY does an about-face and no opposed HIS OWN PLAN.
    5) Obama goes to the compliant media to whine about all the evil things that will happen to this country if HIS OWN PLAN is implemented.
    6) The compliant media dutifully reports that sequestration is a Republican plan that will destroy this nation and kill everyone.
    7) You and spineless Liberals like you blame Republicans and ignore the abject hypocrisy of Obama and the Democrats!

    A more important thing to say is for 50 years both ‘The Stupid Party’ and ‘The Evil Party’ ran this country down into economic collapse; and their excuse? It’s the TEA Party’s fault! The intransigence of the TEA Party caused this!

    How F’ing preposterious is that?!?

    To blame the TEA Party for the economic failure at this stage of the game is no less than the epitome of ignorance at best; but a better explaination is it’s a big fat lie knowingly told by the PTB then repeated by the useful-idiot party apparatchiks.

  24. Adam says:

    1. “You people”? What do you mean, “You people”? Racist.
    2. The GOP wants to help our economy by cutting unnecessary government spending. Obama wants to drastically increase unnecessary government spending at the expense of people who are financilly successful and actually work for a living, and portrays anyone opposed to this as a greedy, heartess miser who hates poor people and doesn’t want to lift a finger to help them (Never mind the fact that studies show that conservatives are MUCH more generous in terms of charitable giving than liberals are).
    3. You are simply ignorant if you think that the erosion of our culture via liberals’ attacks on the six things listed in the cover pic isn’t important or worth any attention.
    4. “The GOP refuses to govern.” I’d say such a description would be more fitting of Obama, who takes multimillion dollar vacations paid for entirely by our tax dollars every couple months or so, and just got back from one in which he was goofing around on golf courses with Tiger Woods while the American people suffer.
    5. “They are bad for America. And so are each and every one of you.” Pot, meet kettle. We want to return America to the sound principles that made it great in the first place; Liberals like you want to destroy and demonize those principles in order to push your own twisted “Social experiment.” btw, since you like all ultra- liberals view financially successful people as evil due to your remark about Romney, it may interest you to know that former VP and professional con man Al Gore is now richer than Romney, due to selling his propaganda TV network (And making a point of finalizing the sale before 2012 ended to avoid paying a lot of taxes on the sale) to another propaganda network that is known for openly praising and encouraging Islamic terrorism against the West. Remind me again which side is bad for America?

  25. Tim from TK says:

    OnlyImportantThing (AKA “I Change My Handle Hourly”) hallucinates:

    “So, we get the sequester in 2 days. At which point, nobody (Tea Party or otherwise) gets anything. The economy will crater, the deficit will balloon…”, yes, yes, mass hysteria, dogs and cats living together, etc., etc.

    So – the sequester, a democrat product, cuts a “whopping” 85 billion out of 3.8 trillion (not counting the nearly 1 trillion deficit), thus making government spending still 40% or so more than it was in 2007 (when the economy was doing fine, thank you) and “nobody gets anything” (followed by TEOTWAWKI).

    Liberal “logic” at its finest.

  27. SNuss says:

    FYI, in spite of sequestration, the budget will continue to grow, due to “baseline budgeting”.

    Sequestration’s effect on the budget is similar to trying to stop a car by having bugs ram the windshield. The bugs rarely survive, and the car doesn’t slow much, if at all.

    Fiberal says:

    I see “Fiberal the Perfect Person” has arrived.

    I suppose: Writing columns for websites denouncing Obama’s divisionist and dangerous policies, writing our congressmen to alert them to conservative worries, emailing our local representatives to ask them to fight government overreach, attending rallies in support of gun control or fiscal sanity, giving money to law groups to fight the ACLU, putting an anti-abortion bumper sticker on the car, posting positive comments on conservative websites and truthfully negative comments on liberal websites, writing letters to the editors of liberal newspapers who posted names of the editorial staff of the paper who outed gun owners, faithfully posting video hyperlinks which expose the progressive agenda to other conservatives so as to stay informed and politically productive, supporting the NRA, persuasively arguing with and converting once-resistant liberals, displaying our American flag, buying conservative books to support conservative authors, joining a law enforcement militia to support the 2nd Amendment and fight the feds, supporting our church to feed the homeless so the government can butt the f*ck out, convincing legal Hispanics that liberals are really their enemy, speaking out at each opportunity among friends to accurately inform them of Obama’s catastrophic policies, coming to MB to share opinions and information to try and help change the political winds, and also, voting against gay-marriage, abortion, a reduced military, gun control, amnesty, all democratic candidates, and the worst president ever – Barack Obama – is not enough.

    Unlike you, who controls the forces of nature and tells the flies when to land on Obama, our expectations are not written in stone – simply because we expexct them to be.

    We do the best we can, and then wait for the consequences – which sometimes come in the form of a tacky little aside from an arrogant do-nothing piss ant.

  31. Sam Adams says:

    If government spending led to increases in economic activity, per Lord Keynes, the US would have a GDP increase of more than 10% and unemployment would be less than 5%.

    BTW…Republicans refuse to govern…
    Wait…Republicans are in a position to govern?

    If they were governing, they would pass a budget and sent the bill on to the Senate…wait…they did that…three times….

    Maybe they would work with the administration to give them the things they demanded, even though it would hurt them politically….like tax increases on the rich and increases in the debt limit….whit they did that too (despite strong opposition from the TEA party.)

    If the republicans were governing, they would send troops into Benghazi to rescue our ambassador and other state department employees, rather than ignoring cries of help for 8 hours…wait…why didn’t the republicans send in the troops…..

    Kids…this is why we don’t want you to use drugs.

  32. Sam Adams says:

    Horrors of horrors. Under sequestration, a government program (that no longer exists) will have it’s budget cut by over 8%.

    The truth about the Oscars….

    Why should I care? The Oscars is the annual celebration by an industry trade group. It is like the National Association of Plumbers celebration who performs the best in new construction, draining cleaning, toilet installation, etc.

    Tell me why I should care.

    Timely video…damn any cop – who would try to hassle those choir boys from Compton.

    My comment earlier re: 95% – should probably realistically be over 99% – excluding the big blue-state transgendered AA PD’s, and anything to do with the feds, i.e., DHS etc.

    Makes me think some people have been hassled a bit (h-m-m-m, wonder why?)

    It really pisses me off to see a cop who oversteps his bounds – but that’s gonna happen – you safeguard against it as best you can. In general, when you fully understand the cops incredible challenge (just look at crime statistics, or watch a maximum-lockup prison show to glimpse what they had to deal with, or for that matter, read today’s headlines!), they should be cut a little slack…not constitutional rights-diminishing slack, just common-sense slack.

    In the argument to defend our right to have guns, it’s often cited that we need to be armed because you can’t always depend on the police to be there on time…which is of course absolutely true. But some people with a subjective axe to grind, will overlook the logistical reasons cops might be delayed, and attribute it instead to police inefficiency or brutish indifference – which infers the cops’ actions are morally similar to the perpetrators. In this or other situations, they’ll always seek a way to find the cop at fault.

    Be careful what you wish for indeed.

    Sequestration vs. Balogna Sandwiches

    Okay, let’s just say Joe Citizen brings home about $40,000 after federal, state, and local governments glom up to 50% of his salary and then he is hit with another, unanticipated take-home reduction of 2.3% ($920 per annum).
    Joe and Mrs. Citizen have to make some hard decisions on how and where to reduce expenditures.

    Do they tell the kids they have to go without dinner once in a while? Do they tell their 15 month old that she has to reduce her Pampers consumption by 2.3%? Do the Citizens skip the mortgage payment for March?

    Or, do they have a Progresso soup and balogna sandwich supper once a month, cancel Billy’s trumpet lessons and Jenny’s ballet classes, forget that movie and babysitter, and maybe Joe gets a part-time job at Burger King?

    Our Democrat leaders in Washington are on the verge of effectively choosing fewer dinners, fewer diapers, and risking our credit rating by not paying their bills by instituting a grand presidential idea, “sequestration,” a variation on the Citizens’ absurd options instead of doing what Mr. and Mrs. C. and most rational people would do–reduce unnecessary expenses, cut out some family frills, and tighten their collective belts.

    Politicians are rarely the brightest bulbs, despite what they think of themselves.

    And Democrat pols certainly think they’re smart as hell–although they can’t come close to passing America’s budget, paying off a farthing of America’s humongous national debt, or convince Americans that politicians actually fulfill any purpose, aside from digging the country deeper and deeper into what could soon become a financial morass without a bottom.

    The late, great, (Democrat) humorist Will Rogers once brilliantly opined, “When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging,” words of wisdom today’s Dems either can’t understand or elect to ignore since they have been digging and digging and digging America into one of the deepest economic holes in recorded history by spending and spending and spending monies we don’t even have.

    Their solution? Sequestration.

    The latest example of Democrat dearth of smarts is currently being exhibited by the guy George Will describes as the “Hysteric in Chief,” none other than President Barack Hussein Obama himself who is carrying on like Henny Penny/Chicken Licken/Chicken Little of folklore fame who believed “The sky is falling!” simply because he had been hit on his fowl head by a falling acorn.

    As far as I know, Obama hasn’t had a falling acorn boink his head since his acolytes at the radical ACORN were outed as his minions. However, our “scholar president” nevertheless acts much like the chicken-brained Henny Penny by threatening to cut essential services and our military when he repeatedly says Republicans must agree with him or the sky would virtually fall.

    In an article on titled “Will: The Sequester Is a Manufactured Crisis,” the astute, conservative political observer George Will put Obama’s whole, farcical sequestration charade in perspective. . . (Read more at
