Axelrod/Schoenkopf/Filner/Zinn; The Stout Hearted American Family Tradition Of Communism

Yes, yes, they are all Jews but this is an "inside the family" post which I dealt with at the "first with the Jews" David Frum vs Prof Jacobson post some time ago.

And just to make it perfectly clear this is a"family" post here's my tribute to my Grandfather (especially for boxing aficionados)

With the "racist/anti-Semite" idiocy disposed of here, again for aficionados, here are just some of the very best in American Communist family histories-just so fans can know which team to support when the are being lulled into socialist fantasies.

First the Axelrod's whose journey culminated in the election of President Obama-well done!
"The Socialist/Communist Axelrod Family In The Russian Revolution And Later"

Then we have avowed "commiegirl" and propagandist extraordinaire;
"Wonkette (Editor Rebecca Schoenkopf) And The Communist Influence Behind It"

Ex-Mayor of San Diego Bob Filner the man with the wandering hands;

And here is the redoubtable R.S. McCain, never one to mince words ("commie scum") on Howard Zinn

Oh well, I probably should toss in a few non-Jews as "persons of interest" (not their family) so the left can throw the idiotic raaaacist epithet at me-this unfounded rubbish makes them feel good in their simplistic world-view. Unfortunately for them I'd have to present pictures from my current close relatives which would stop them in their tracks.

Here is alleged Obama influence and here was part of his administration;

Frank Marshall Davis

Van Jones

And just to round things out a non-Jew White person as well; Bill Ayers

How To Become a Leftist "Journolist" In 10 Easy Steps The Kaili Joy Gray/Tommy Christopher Way (Hint-Palin)

Hey kids-are you full of hate against "the man"? Are you itching to become a crusading leftist writer and get chicks (works for leftist women as well see "Snipy" at Wonkette), notoriety and, lets face it, lots of money?

If you want to become a raging hot head like Ed Schultz and eventually morph into a spittle flecked grey head of the left like Chris Matthews you've got to start somewhere-and, turncoat that I am, I'm going to give you the secret to success. 

It's easy and has worked for these leftist luminaries; Kaili Joy Gray, graduating from being a nobody at raging radical site Daily Kos to regular columnist there, and now a gibberer at Wonkette. Tommy Christopher, from a zero to the object of conservative hate with his biggest trophy yet in his young career as a rabble rouser-a hit piece on him at Conservatives4Palin-way to go!

Who else has climbed this Jacob's ladder to heaven by wrestling with their Angel of fame. Well there's Rebecca Schoenkopf the editor at Wonkette, the genuinely weird but highly succesful "Gryphen" at Immoral Minority who has cornered a mass market in crazies, and the even more weird Malia Litman who inhabits the outer sphere of planet bonkers. These, and many many more, have achieved niche success on the outer reaches of leftism by following this simple ten point program.

1. Write a column ridiculing Sarah Palin use "idiot" to show how clever you are
2. Write a column calling Palin "grifter" whilst constantly begging your own readers for money (Wonkette speciality)
3. Write a column full of personal attacks on any member of the Palin family especially her special needs son (again, a Wonkette speciality)
4. Write a Palin column  accompanied by the worst image you can find of her-this works well for Wonkette/Immoral Minority.
5. Write a column about Palin and include remarks from half a decade ago and take them out of context 
6. Write a column about Palin and include the words "Quitter"/Snowbilly/Trailer-Park/1/2 Term/racist/irrelevant 
7.Write a column about Palin which is full of wrong information e.g."her endorsements are a kiss of death"
8. Write a column calling anyone who makes mistakes "The new Palin" no matter how remote the connection
9. Write a column ridiculing Palin's faith/right to life beliefs-that goes down well with the far left crowd.
10.Write a column attacking any prominent conservative by making a connection to Palin.

If you follow this tried and true formula for page views for your blog, or to create a resume sure to be admired by Daily Kos/Wonkette/Mediaite and all the other Palin hate sites you'll be on your way! 

Who knows you might even end up at Salon or The Guardian where Wonkette graduates like Newell and Cox go to become the high end of the market Palin haters and big income earners. 

Hey, don't forget to acknowledge me when you make your breakthrough-an hate column or two-as Wonkette does on me from time to time, will suffice. (gives me cred on the right-just between you and me).

Polygamy:The Answer To The GOP's Supposed Hispanic Demographic Crisis?

With the overturning of DOMA and the California referendum on marriage, the "progressive" forces are turning to other aspects of their agenda leaving their retinue in the courts, media and activist blogs to do the mopping up.

Once same sex marriage has been legalized across the country, as the leftist media advises is inevitable then, as has been well noted, all the arguments for same sex marriage will be applied to polygamy. Frankly it is hard for both the Gay groups and those who oppose their marriage agenda to bring any argument against polygamy.

There is absolutely nothing that applied to the same sex marriage arguments, which were considered valid, that do not, in every way, apply to polygamy. When confronted with this fact prior to the courts decisions, Gay groups dismissed them airily with 'they are not comparable" or "that's an extreme argument". The latter statement was of course exactly what was said against homosexual activities just a few years ago and look where we are now.

So presuming that at some point in the future, the near future in my opinion, the drums will start to beat for polygamy to be legalized, what would that mean for the political landscape? The answer may be surprising, especially for progressives.

There can be no doubt that the probable legislation giving eventual voting rights to the multi-millions of illegals will see a horde of newly enfranchised voters for the Democratic Party. So many that pundits have sounded the death knell for the GOP especially if Texas is swamped by new Dem voters. 

At that point the GOP would have no chance of winning in the Electoral College for at least a few generations until there are enough upper middle class Hispanics to start the pendulum swinging again.

Unless a genuinely conservative team gets in in 2016, which may be a tall order given the likely candidacy of Hillary Clinton, the GOP looks doomed at the presidential level unless multi-millions of whites who didn't vote for either McCain or Romney turn out in 2016.

Is there any demographic change that can help overcome this? Over time there is, and in a classic case of unintended consequences the next "progressive" step, legalizing polygamy, could overcome the Dem's coming Hispanic advantage.

If polygamy is legalized, two groups would seem to be the most natural beneficiaries-Muslim Americans, whose faith allows for up to four wives but who don't appear to keen on the idea, and Mormons who in the early stages of the faith's growth allowed for a multiplicity of them. Brigham Young for example had numerous wives "marrying a total of 55 wives,"

It is in exactly the swing states, where both Mormons and Hispanics live in large or potentially large numbers, where the demographics would come into play. Hispanics moving into Colorado, growing in numbers in New Mexico, Nevada and Texas would be matched by Mormons with multiple wives as compared to Hispanics having one.

The ensuing Mormon birth rate would, given the voting rate turnout differences between the two groups, surely more than make up for the Hispanic increase in voters even though there may be considerably more Hispanics.

Thus over five presidential elections, which would be about the time frame for the Amnesty legislation to start having a measured effect in the Electoral College the Mormon birth rate could keep Texas red and move swing states into the GOP's columns.

Not only might the traditional Republican states in the "Mormon Corridor" e.g. Utah gain more Electoral College votes as their population increased dramatically, so to might the previously mentioned swing states gain substantial Electoral College votes though both the Hispanic and Mormon influx.

Before polygamy was outlawed the Mormon population had a dramatic increase with Young leading by example "By the time of his death, Young had 57 children by 16 of his wives; 46 of his children reached adulthood." Even with polygamy having been outlawed in the world-wide Mormon population has grown from an initial six members in 1830 to 14 million in 2012. "Mormonism will be America's first-or second-largest religion by 2106" advises a Mormon spokesman.

With that sort of fecundity from just one man, and modern medicine ensuring most children survive, the opportunity for a most unsuspected, but most certainly possible, Republican restoration could come from this unlikely quarter. The sight of progressives being hoisted on their own petard would be an added bonus.

The Democrat's Sex Distraction Problem-Straights,Gays,Lesbians,Transgenders Muddle Message

Remember the halcyon days for the left, the G.W. Bush years? No, not the wars, or the financial crisis or their bugaboo Cheney (N.B. not a racist word thanks) or G.W. himself, rather the leftist blogosphere feasted on a seemingly never-ending cornucopia of Republicans caught in, mostly, Gay sexipodes.

Senators with "wide stances" Congressmen (always men) sexting with under-age interns,an unending list of ultra-conservative officials who ranted about Gays then enjoying such things until outed. The likes of Wonkette, Daily Kos feasted until satiated and then feasted again as if the wheel would never turn full circle to the misty-eyed for conservatives Clinton years.

But turn they have, and just as the hypocrites on the right were hoist with their own petard, the left is exhibiting a seemingly endless parade of all manner of satyriasis, righteous Gays causing outrage (for and against them) amongst a divided left.Male whistle blowers who wish to become females, and Lesbian partners of high profile candidates being brought into the campaigns to confusion as to their new and unique role with ensuing distraction from the candidates message).

The left was divided enough on the rights or wrongs of the Assange/Manning/Snowden "whistle blowing" until the Guardian's journalist who reported on Snowden turned out to have an aggrieved (by the authorities) Gay partner which created a massive fissure on the left. Little Green Footballs turning on the hate, Crooks and Liars turning on the love and hating the Obama administration.

On the "straight" front Dem's Weiner and Filner created huge opportunities for utter ridicule and Spitzer distaste for his ridiculous attack on Weiner. All of this hormonal hypocrisy and confusion is the result of the left getting what it wanted-a victory in the "social wars."

Nearly everything the right stood for in the 2004 election in the social sphere has been overturned under the Obama administration. The resulting anything goes and everyone can marry anyone, do anything to whomever atmosphere, has created a time of license without any morality based structure-or rather any reference to self-discipline.The result is these Democrat's are revealed as variously hypocrite's, liars, perverts
sexually confused or sexually uncontrollable. 

The result has been a massive distraction for the Obama administration as the governing party undergoes a slow and steady descent in the social morass whilst it assumes the blame for the economy and its foreign policy failings.

The left sowed the social wind it is reaping the social whirlwind and if this malaise continues the 2014 elections will make 2010 look like a gentle remonstration and will make President Obama the lamest of lame ducks. If that is the case then any of Palin/Paul/Cruz in 2016 will make the left wishful for G.W. Bush

Hidden Factor To Give Palin Edge On Clinton In A 2016 Presidential Match Up?

Thanks so much for reading our blog. It makes you part of the smartest, most diverse and open-minded community on the web.

As can be seen from this excerpt from OMG Facts (link) since 1900 i.e. from the days of mass communication, the taller of the presidential candidates has won 75% of the time. The article links to the Wikipedia source which goes into the matter in much depth

"Since 1900, the taller candidate has almost always won the presidential election.

Every 4 years when the presidential elections rolls around, analysts look at polls, platforms, and marketing techniques to predict which candidate will eventually win. Perhaps, to save a bit of time, they should just take a quick look at the candidates’ height! Statistics show that since 1900, the taller candidate has won the election 75% of the time.  

Some political and cultural experts say that this is because the public unconsciously favors taller people. In a 2003 essay by New York Times writer Virginia Postrel about artificially increasing the height of growth-stunted children, she says; “Still, being short on average, does hurt a person’s prospects...The tall guy gets the girl. The taller presidential candidate almost always wins.” 

However new territory as regards this matter is quite possibly fast approaching-2016 may see not just one but two female presidential candidates representing the two major parties for the first time. If that is the case, and it is Hillary Clinton versus Sarah Palin, it opens up to question a number of factors which hitherto never arose.

Will the height factor which Postrel considers so important in "getting the girl" matter when it comes to a presidential election when both candidates are female? What about the high heel factor? Palin is well known for favoring impressively high stiletto's whereas Clinton is, perhaps, more thought of as a trouser suit and flat shoes person in her public persona. 

Would such an artificially created
height difference make all the difference in a close election? These are questions that have ever arisen before, and will no doubt be the subject of much sociological and political research and controversy.

There is some historical reference in that the Green Party ran a women as their presidential candidate in 2012, but she did not participate in the major debates. 

Palin, and before her Geraldine Ferraro, both ran for the vice-presidency but those campaigns were against men and there was only one VP debate which had little effect on the overall campaigns. Thus it appears that the question, should it arise in 2016, will add another dimension to what could be an historic campaign for so many reasons.

Who would be at the historic disadvantage, all things being equal, if it were a Clinton versus Palin match up? The answer appears to somewhat murky as a number of internet sites gives many different heights for Mrs. Clinton. So the question arises-what are Secretary Clinton and Governor Palin's heights?

At Clinton is said to be five foot four inches Link But at Wikianswers she is determined (by imbd) to be a whole lot taller at five foot eight and a half inches! Link and by Wikianswers itself to be five foot six inches.

The height of Governor Palin also appears to be somewhat murky. states she is 5 foot four and three quarters in height whilst Wikianswers states she is a full five foot five inches. 

Thus is Wiki is correct for Palin, and for Clinton, then the odds are well in Palin's favor should the historical tendency play out for women.
Under normal circumstances Governor Palin's management experience and common touch would
make her the odds on favorite, but the height factor may be a dimension that has escaped the political writers thus far.

It may well be that should the economy show no improvement in 2016, and these two are the nominees, then the only hope for Secretary Clinton, given Governor Palin's obvious advantages, would be if Wiki is correct about her height.

But could she compete with this?

With this?

Update#4.None Dare Call It Conspiracy:Sept 15th 2008 The Day Obama Was Elected As Lehman Bros Collapsed

UPDATE #4    9/18/16

The Fed meets Sept 21/22 This is their last chance (Wed 21st) to show who the monied interest wants as president. If they raise interest rates the share market will go into a nosedive which would probably be the final nail in Hillary's coffin.

The Fed has plenty of leeway either way as this article sets out;

"This Big Surprise Will Make Next Week Fed's Interest-Rate Meeting A Lot More Interesting"

Basically the Fed has two mechanism which they can use to either raise  interest rates or keep them as they are;

"The Fed doesn’t use CPI to judge its performance, but relies on the personal consumption expenditures (PCE) measure instead."

The CPI is rising and PCE isn't so they can use either one to justify whatever move they make.If they raise interest rates and the market tanks it will not be for love of Trump, rather it would be to stick him with the (inevitable) recession.

If they don't raise interest rates they are either happy to prop up Hillary indefinitely or will prop her up till she takes over in January and then have a short correction propped up by more money printing.


Update#3 Ben Bernanke was interviewed on BBC's "Hardtalk" program.The interviewer Steven Sackur, asked him;'"You've been accused of acting politically over the collapse of Lehman brothers." Bernanke replied, we had no choice but to let it go as we did not have the tools to save it." 
Sackur "But you saved AIG?"   Bernanke" It had assets we could use."

The Reserve Bank with its access to the printing press as per QE 1-4 and its trillion of printed dollars could have easily saved Lehman. It did not and McCain was left floundering and within days Obama came from behind and was never behind again.

Update #2; "Was The Economic Crisis Manufactured?
Nancy Morgan at American Thinker LINK

Sept. 15, 2008: Obama and McCain are virtually tied in their race for the presidency. Out of no-where, in the space of less than 2 hours, the Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous drawdown of money market accounts in the U.S. to the tune of $550 billion. Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania said that if authorities had not closed the banks, $5.5 trillion would have been withdrawn from US banks, which would have caused the collapse of the US  within 24 hours.

This seminal event marked the ascendancy of Obama's candidacy, and arguably resulted in his election as president."

Update #1: "drmac" at C4P makes the following comment which, in my opinion, adds to the overview I originally presented. The facts, as know, are challenging and given the various forces supporting an Obama presidency,the leftist media (to the point of a "Journolist conspiracy" and the financial establishment looking to an accommodative Fed,whether or not there was a decision to let, or facilitate, a crash to destroy the McCain/Palin election chances is worth considering:

"I find this scene disturbing, but of course no one on the Political Right will have anything to say, and the entire LEFT are cheering it. For those that had no understanding of Hank Paulson's role in determining the outcome of the 2008 Election, it will mean nothing. For those that were upset that Paulson took over the last three months of Bush's Presidency, including the TAKE DOWN of Lehman Brothers, which he KNEW would result in the Wall Street Stock Market crash, and ALL Parties KNEW from the day the TAKE DOWN was announced, determination of the outcome of the 2008 Election was no longer in doubt (the day before the announcement McCain/Palin were leading in the polls, this appearance on our Gov't Network -Cspan- should resonate as a very troubling site.
It is bad enough Paulson never apologized to the American people for interfering with our nation's most sacred proceeding (the choosing of our President for the next four years), but how inappropriate is it for him to be sharing the stage with the man who MOST benefited the MOMENT Paulson ACTED. One cannot blame Axelrod for Celebrating Paulson's entry into the 2008 Campaign, but for Paulson sharing this VICTORY!
Paulson and Paulson alone set the stage for Obama's victory. A stage up to that point had no answers for the arrival of Sarah Palin. Paulson's ACT set in motion an entirely different campaign.
I would love to know what Sarah Palin is thinking when she sees this video:"

  • *************************************************************************************************

    "They're not going to let it happen" and I said Well,I don't know; maybe the will"

    The last thing I am is a "conspiracy theorist" but in the case of the 2008 presidential election the astonishing turnarounds that took place just after the Republican convention and the economic calamity in late September are near to being beyond anything that can be considered as a normal occurrence.

    In its simplest outline the facts are these; John McCain's campaign was dead in the water. Barack Obama "the one" had just delivered his nomination acceptance speech to a rapturous convention and the accolades of a sycophantic, part conspiratorial (yes, see "Journolist conspiracy" LINK) media reception.

    At that point, according to the analysis of the widely respected "The Votemaster" at LINK  using the same poll accumulation method that Nate Silver at does to wide acclaim, Barack Obama was running away with the election in the Electoral College as pictured below, and also in the various popular vote polls, Gallup etc.

    Then John McCain stunned the political world with his selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate and on September 5th she delivered what is considered one of the best and most influential convention addresses of all time.

    The GOP rank and file, previously lacklustre in its support, was solidly behind the McCain/Palin team and within days the huge gap between McCain and Obama was not only closed but in the popular vote McCain surged into the lead-Bill Kristol;"Sarah Palin gave McCain the best two weeks of his campaign."

    On the Electoral College map for September 12th McCain/Palin had reached the 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency and, for the first time that would have been seen in the leftist media, doubts and concerns about the previously inevitable Obama win became apparent. A full map history of those dramatic weeks is AT THIS LINK

    "Today might later be remembered as the beginning of the end for Obama," 
    For the first time this year John McCain has taken the lead in the electoral college, albeit by 2 EVs. Today's configuration shows McCain ahead in all the swing states except Colorado, all of which could go either way. Today might later be remembered as the beginning of the end for Obama, or just a blip. Obama now has 268 EVs. In 2004, John Kerry had 273 on this date. 

    Then from September 16th onwards the share market collapsed bringing mass unemployment, huge concerns for the average American and McCain's advisers giving him the wrong advice; "put the campaign on hold, don't campaign in Michigan, hold back Palin."

    Here below are a few comments which illustrate the events of the time and the feeling that it would benefit the Democrats. From that day onwards, except for one day when the lagging polls had not caught up, the McCain campaign was behind, irretrievably, in the popular vote and Electoral College (as the map indicates) and the campaign was effectively over.

    The questions are valid; did the Eastern elites who knew the parlous state of their system, who contributed such huge financial support to the Obama campaign, decide that they were going to have a Democrat in the White House who would allow the huge increase in Reserve Bank money creation that would prop up their banking system no matter what?

    It would have been in their interest to bring on the collapse of a few major institutions to ensure that their banking structure receive massive injections of cash and thus prop up the remaining ones? Decision were taken to allow the ones that collapsed, specifically Lehman Brothers, to collapse when it would have been possible to prop them up.

    Leftist Noam Chomsky  now agrees that Palin was right about Obama in 2008
    and further, "Palin,when she was making fun of ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right; there was nothing there-that there was no substance to his presidential campaign"

    That being the case it is quite possible to conclude that the "empty suit' was going to win no matter the cost in unemployment and economic dislocation even if it took losing a few, albeit major, pawns along the way.

    McCain might not have won, and even with the lead he had gained because of Palin it would have been touch and go-but was that a risk the financial elites did not wish to take?

    "The economy is back"

    News from the Votemaster

    Hello Economy, Goodbye Cosmetics on Animals

    Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch no longer exist, A.I.G. is being radically restructured, and the Dow dropped 500 points yesterday. Guess what? The economy is back. The Washington Post's Dan Balz has a good piece on the political fallout. People are going to be asking the candidates: "How are you going to fix this mess and prevent a repetition?" The election will probably hang on the answers. The moderator of the first debate (Jim Lehrer), on Sept. 26 at the University of Mississippi, is probably going to bring up the subject as well.

    News from the Votemaster

    Dow Jones Index Plunges Another 449 Points

    The $85 billion bailout of the nation's largest insurance company, A.I.G. didn't calm investors. They drove the DJIA down another 449 points, closing at 10,610. In October 2007 it was 14,164, a drop of 3554 points or 25% from the high. Here is a chart of the DJIA for the past 12 months. It's not pretty.
    The political consequences are becoming increasingly clear: the economy is going to drown out every other topic and both parties are struggling to find good responses. This is going to be easier for Democrats than Republicans, in part because the answer most voters want aligns well with the Democrats' traditional response: the government needs to regulate big business. The traditional Republican response is to let the market do its work and reward winners and punish losers. Eventually it will settle down. But for millions of people worried about their jobs, their houses, their investments, their pensions, and their futures, just waiting it out may not be so popular

    The list of Christian churches, schools, institutions, shops torched by the Muslim Brotherhood in the last three days
    The following list of 58 looted and burned buildings (including convents and schools) has been verified by representatives of the Christian Churches.

    Cairo (AsiaNews) - At least 58 Christian churches, schools, institutions, homes and shops have been attacked, looted and torched over the last three days by the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of Mohamed Morsi, the former Egyptian president who was deposed on 3 July .
