As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

The election fraud we told you about on Friday's blog includes some pretty serious allegations about the voter registration fraud being perpetrated by Republican-paid people, and there's a history of unethical practices by one Nathan Sproul.

Let it be known, none of the voter ID laws that The American Taliban has been pushing lately would have stopped anything like this. It's time for Fux Ewes, Faux News or whatever they're called today to air the error of their parties ways.

Denial is not the only river in Egypt. ThinkProgress covered Sproul and his work for the coal industry back in 2009. The post goes through his greatest hits, including evidence that his firm systematically suppressed Democratic voters on behalf of the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential team and deceiving voters during registration drives in 2006.

Don’t forget that Nathan Sproul got his start in the early ’90s as one of the ringleaders of the Arizona branch of the Christian Coalition. If that doesn’t brand him as a Kool-Aid drinker, I don’t know what will.

Sproul has a pathological history of voter fraud allegations, this is not his first nor shall it be his last, unless he is found guilty of these felonies. He has been accused of tampering with Democratic voter registration forms over several election cycles across multiple states. Nathan Sproul, today's worst person in the world, and American's number one committer of voter fraud.

Caution, when in doubt, always assume a camera is watching you! Two stories below that illustrate true voter fraud, and it's not whom we have been led to believe it is.

For months the GOP has enacted laws to suppress the voters. Maybe they should look know further than their own kind!


Nathan Sproul has been hired by Bush, McCain and Romney. He's been implicated in kickbacks to secure a billion dollar contract to run charter schools and learning centers. His dubious past includes allegations of election fraud when his employees tore up voter registration forms filled out by Democrats.

Republicans who have decided they can't win unless they cheat. Sproul is "credited" with many less than ethical initiatives over the years.

The Republican National Committee has fired Nathan Sproul and his consulting firm it had hired to register Republican voters over allegations of that the firm turned in 106 potentially fraudulent registrations in Florida, NBC News' Michael Isikoff reports. Over the last few years, Republicans have pushed for stricter rules like showing a valid photo ID at polling stations to combat voter fraud, under the suspicion that lots of people are out there criminally and fraudulently voting. As it happens, this case, Isikoff writes, "appears to be one of the first to have led to a criminal inquiry in this year's election."

The RNC has paid Strategic Allied Consulting $2.9 million this year, but terminated the contract after the elections supervisor in Palm Beach County discovered the suspected fake registrations, some of which listed home addresses as those of a gas station and a car dealership. Iskoff reports:
Out of 304 Republican voter-registration forms recently dropped off by a firm employee at a small "satellite office" of the Palm Beach elections office, 106 were flagged as potentially fraudulent -- including "a lot" with "similar looking" signatures and others with apparently phony addresses, [Palm Beach election supervisor Susan] Bucher said in an interview.

Story Number Two El Paso County Colorado:

Outside of a Safeway in El Paso County, Colorado a young woman is allegedly trying to register voters, but she has a little scam going. She first says she is taking a poll and asks if you support Romney or Obama. If you say Obama she says ok, thanks you, and moves on. If you say Romney she will ask you if you are registered to vote and if not, she will attempt to register you.

An unamed woman who took the video, a local Democratic precinct boss, was savvy to the registrars tricks and caught her in a lie almost immediately. The worker admits to only registering Republicans. She then denies it, but admits to the fraud and says "we're trying to be honest."

A gem of a video, must see!

The Huffington Post reports that this video was shot over a month ago by a Democratic "campaign operative" and was recently released to damage the Republican party.

It was locally reported by that their local news team contacted the El Paso County Clerk & Recorder Wayne Williams to answer questions. Williams stance is that "pre-screening voters with preference questions isn't against the law. You don't have to offer a voter registration form to everybody."

The law becomes complex as a person registering is not required to offer anyone registration, but it is illegal to not give information if requested. It is also illegal to not submit completed voter registration forms.

Let's be clear readers, anyway you slice the cake, this is what voter fraud looks like, in case of confusion, re-watch these videos again and again until it sinks in!

After the past weeks of just painfully pathetic public prat-falls capped off by the devastating latest polling numbers, leaves Mitt Romney’s patrician glass jaw smashed into tiny bits, you’d have to imagine that the Tea party-led rightwing shock troops, having pinned all of their post-2010 electoral hopes and dreams on the deeply flawed shoulders of one Thurston Howell III AKA Willard Mitt Romney and the GOP is more than a little worried.

The man is at best a excruciating embarrassment as a candidate. Mitt’s a self-parody who jumped the shark before he even became the official nominee! What a “Debbie Downer” on the GOP morale he must be? It’s hard to keep rooting for the home team when the quarterback is such a witless plonker, isn’t it? The GOP is terrific at getting the vote out, but will the faithful line-up to vote for a tax-dodging plutocrat with Cayman Island bank accounts like Mitt Romney?

Their brows jagged in frustration and their lips tighten with anguish, as the GOP/tea party train has crashed for the last time.

In a desperate attempt to save his campaign, Romney channels Abe Lincoln; “I can screw 47% of the people 100% of the time, and favor the 1% 100% of the time, but it seems I can't fool anybody any of the time.”

Below are three videos that depict a desperate GOP party.

Seriously, Mittens, instead of pandering and lying and twisting words, why don't you try and tell us something useful? Maybe show us something with relevance, like your tax returns, and then maybe we could all just stop talking - and start planning Obama's victory celebration.

R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson

Virginia GOP's Wally Hudson's version of racism

Mecklenburg County, Virginia is a tiny little hamlet situated on the border between Virginia and North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, there were 32,727 people, 12,951 households, and 8,962 families residing in the county. The population density was 52 people per square mile. A little under 50% of Mecklenburgers are 45 years of age or older. 60% are Caucasian and the median income for a family was $37,752. The per capita income for the county was $17,171. About 11.60% of families and 15.50% of the population were below the poverty line. Keep in mind, now, this is not a small town, it’s an entire county and Mecklenburg flies pretty comfortably under the global radar . . . . most of the time.

Now enters Mr. Hudson, Tea Bagger extraordinaire, and "today's worst person in the world". Having just blogged yesterday about the pasty white racists of the current GOP; even more proof that "coded" language, however disguised, is still racism - and which is still highly visible in both the GOP and the state of Virginia.

In a classic demonstration of “size doesn’t matter,” though, little Mecklenburg managed to set off a political crapstorm that has gone viral and now everyone knows that the Virginia State GOP has ordered Mecklenburg to clean up its FaceBook page—or else. The Mecklenburg GOP Chairman has “pleaded the First” and refuses to comply. The material that the State GOP finds offensive is a rather large collection of anti-Obama “photoshops”, some of which have already made the rounds (ie, Witch Doctor Obama) others that are obviously newer judging by topicality.

The story as it unfolded last night:

The Mecklenburg County Republican Committee refuses to take down a series of race-baiting pictures of President Obama from its Facebook page, despite the requests of the Virginia Republican Party.

The Washington Post reports that the state GOP ordered the MCRC to remove the pictures, which depict various anti-Obama and birther messages (such as, “vote for the American”), and one infamous picture that depicts Obama as a witch doctor. The pictures have been up for several months, but got a bunch of attention after Senate candidate George Allen stopped in the area.
“These kinds of images have no place in political discourse — period,” Pat Mullins, chair of the Republican Party of Virginia, told the Post. “They are offensive, tasteless and should never have been posted anywhere, let alone a local unit’s Facebook page. The Republican Party of Virginia condemns this sort of imagery in the strongest possible terms. I am in the process of contacting our Mecklenburg County unit to inform them that this is unacceptable behavior from any local unit associated with our party.”

When told of backlash against the pictures, R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson, who chairs the MCRC, said he put the pictures up himself. “We don’t consider any of it racist … I’m not ashamed of it. I mean, good God, you should have seen some of the images they did of George [W.] Bush. It’s freedom of speech.” He added: “If they’ve got a problem with it, we’re not going to change what we do.”
“They can do what they want,” Hudson said of the state GOP. “I’m waiting for the phone call.”

In parenthesis below is Mr. Wally's facebook link, which has since been removed by facebook.

[ of the Mecklenburg County VA Republican Party].


In yet another story regarding racism from the GOP - this time by Scott Brown staffers whom mock Elizabeth Warren with the incredibly racist "tomahawk chop" and "war whoops" in a disgusting display of xenophobia.

I hate racism more than anyone, and I can tolerate much - I've seen some very putrid things come from some very radical righties in my time, from Dana Loesch to Laura Ingram to Ann Coultergiest and Sean Hannity, and while the material on the Mecklenburg GOP Facebook page is, admittedly, sophomoric, crude, vulgar and pretty much generally disgusting. It’s actually astonishing that Wally was able to find all of this stuff on the internet—I shudder to think where he hangs out online. Nevertheless, in a spirit of tolerance and intellectual curiosity, I struggle to undersatnd what makes Mecklenburg Virginia tick. It can’t be Romney-love because, by my calculations about 98.9% of Mecklenburg are the 47% that Romney loathes Maybe it’s a southern thing?

Sometimes a photo is worth a thousand words. Some pictures of the Mecklenburg GOP:

Here’s a picture of Chairman R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson leading the Annual Mecklenburg White Folks Appreciation Day Parade:

The next three shots are from this years Romney/Ryan Fundraising Pig Roast in Mecklenburg:

See how offensive photo's can be readers? Get the picture? 

What's sad about all this is....... how unsurprising it is!

Post Script: At the time of posting this blog - we have been unable to contact Mr. Hudson. Since he lives in my backyard maybe a knock on his door would be appropriate. Stay tuned.

I have said over and over again on some 1,300 blogs [blogs written to date], that "a mind is a terrible thing to waste", but apparently if you waste 25 million of them, you get the current republican party.

Color still lingers about us, that being the hate for someone not of your color. Whether we see it or not, and since it is no longer acceptable, nor fashionable, it oozes out from around the edges of the radical republican party, and those whom speak it don't even realize that, as good as their intentions might be, as improved as their attitudes might be from where they used to be, or where their parents and grandparents used to be, or where America used to be, it's still racism.

This is not something that should be true even as evidence of our horrific past. But it is. Discrimination is still all around us in so many ways, openly re-directed towards immigrants who are doing nothing more than following the path that brought my recent ancestors here and probably yours, or focused on gays predicated on a mumbo-jumbo of biblical misinterpretations or leeching out still against black people in things like the tea party movement or the republican party as a whole.

Thus it becomes fashionable, sometimes psychologically necessary, that when those radicals express it, they have put it in code, or better yet dress it up or provide rationalization to themselves for it. We say that it has nothing to do with race or prejudice - "Barack is a socialist", "he is bent on destroying the country" and "he was only elected by people who can't speak English", or was it because he was only elected by "guilty whites", "voter ID Laws", "Voter suppression"?

The rationalizations of a racist are too many and to contradictory for the sane minded to keep up with. The whole of the "anger - at - government" movement is predicated on this. The future is confusing, the threat from those whom want to dismantle our way of life are real - as if we aren't already doing it for them.


And yes, the President is black, but they can't come out and just say that, for if so you're an outcast, so now enter the euphemisms, you know "your taxes have gone up", "grandma is likely to be death paneled by Obamacare", and yes America has a "socialist President"!

Facts don't mean a rats ass to the radical republicans when they look for any excuse to hate the President! But not because he is black - anything you can say out loud without your family and friends bursting into laughter at you will do.

Not all our heritage is honorable. Not all the decisions of the founding fathers were noble! Not very many of the founding fathers evolved enough to believe that the black people were actually people. The founding fathers thought they were, and fought hard to make sure they would always remain slaves.

Fear is a terrible thing, so is prejudice, so is racism.

If the radical 4G network [God, Guns, Gays, GOP] AKA The American Taliban's believe there is merit to their political argument, fine. But ask yourself this when you next watch fixed noise, or go to a tea bagger event, or listen to a American Taliban politician, or commentators that praise these very things, or merely treat them as if it was just a coincidence that they are virtually segregated, ask yourself, where are the black faces? Who am I marching with? What are we afraid of?

And if it's really only a "Presidents Policies" and not his skin color - then ask yourself one last question. Why are you surrounded by the largest crowd you will ever again see in your lifetime that consists of noting but people who look exactly like you? Where are they?

UPDATE: The Massachusetts Senate race gets racist

Low-Information Voters LIV's 

“If you’re one of the 5 percent of American voters who are still undecided on who to vote for, it’s okay to admit you just don’t really give a shit. Seriously, if you still can’t figure out who you like more –Mitt Romney or Barrack Obama– stay home… because you probably couldn’t find your polling place anyway. I mean, what more information does someone need to make this choice? Obama has been President for nearly four years. And Mitt Romney has been running for President since 1971, when his space egg incubated and he burst out of an astronaut’s chest.” ~ Bill Maher

Is there a bigger hoax around than the teapublican party? All charm and promise - though the nuts and bolts may be a bit harsher reality. Will the lies work? They sure hope so, because the tea party enthusiasts could not possibly win without this block of voters - which is a "special" group: The "low-information voters," or LIVs, a term that keeps popping up of late.

The term is mainly used to refer to those who vote conservative against their interests. Given the recent media coverage about "low-information" voters we thought at NFTOS - that we'd educate those Americans who rely on talk radio and less-than-factual hearsay from friends and family members to shape their political decisions.

Mitt Romney is going hard after these unlettered voters in a handful of swing states — voters who are considered critical to winning the election. Bill Maher has a better take on these unlettered voters, watch below:

Now enter the uninformed voter. Twenty-five percent of Americans are functionally illiterate. Ninety percent get their news from corporate TV. Too many think Iraq attacked us on 9/11, that Barack is a Muslim, that Medicare and welfare are bankrupting the country. The uninformed voter doesn't seem to care that their only source of information is Fixed Noise, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann 'the man" Coulter:




The unlettered voter is trained to worship capitalism, even as his own personal wealth declines.

Civics, history and geography have all but disappeared from our schools. The American Taliban loves this type of base- a dumber lot if you will, this way, it makes it easier to blame Obama.

In short , LIV's are a precious commodity and must be cultivated carefully, how better to do so than though a clumsily disguised "news network" - to pipe in the nonsense? LIV's are responsible for their own ignorance, and if they're getting most of their "information" from Faux News then may God help us all.

Information literacy and facts are becoming more and more important in an ever expanding world of chaos. Many tea party enthusiasts watch Faux News with a high level of fervency, ir-regaurdless of truth or facts. And with every Faux News talking head [Hannity, O'Reilly, Malakin, Coulter], they become more hopelessly clueless about what's going on around them. The creed of right wing media is to lie, and deceive frequently, you know, feed the hungry wolves as much red meat as you can so as to ensure a dumber base, one whom can be manipulated easily - even when they know its truly better to tell the truth poorly than to lie well.

"Be prepared, then, for racial and religious profiling, because you've got to blame somebody for all the reductions in domestic spending and civil liberties, just to make sure the agitators against the United Corporate States of America are kept unheard.

Be prepared for those poor dumb manipulated bastards, the Tea Partiers, to have a glorious few years as the front men as the corporations that bankroll them slowly unroll their total control of our political system. And then be prepared to watch them be banished, maybe outlawed, when a few of the brighter ones suddenly realize that the corporations have made them the Judas Goats of American Freedom."

The above quotes, and the below video [US Government for Sale] is by Keith Olbermann - of the once hit show MSNBC "Countdown". This story aired January 21, 2012. Watch it below.


Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Its amazing to see how many things Keith spoke and wrote about - almost two years ago, that are coming to fruition today. Scary, yes, real, yes, so what are we going to do about it?


If corporations are truly people then let's put them in prison when they commit crimes.

How many prisons do we have to build to hold Halliburton behind bars for raping Jamie Leigh Jones? How about BP and the Gulf Oil Spill, sounds like vandalism run wild to me.Think of all the jobs and profits to be made from putting our corporate criminals behind bars. Fukushima, shouldn't those corporations that built the plant be held accountable, put in prison, and then assigned to be on the cleanup crews? But then again, thinking rationale, I don't think I would like Dick Cheney walking around picking up trash in my neighborhood - in his bright orange jump suit.

Citizens United was and is at the forefront of "corporations are people" - whom are the lunatic fringe of the right, and they assert their mission as "being dedicated to restoring the United States government to "citizens' control" and to "assert American values of limited government, freedom of enterprise, strong families, and national sovereignty and security."

This philosophy is a fascist shell game, corporations are only people when it is advantageous to the corporation in its pursuit of profit, regardless of consequences.

Let's face it readers, corporations are an artificial legal construct designed to shield the owners of a business from legal liability arising from its actions. It serves a useful purpose in society, but it is not a person. It is not created equal to humans and it does not have inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It does not get to vote, and it has no place participating in the elections process. Whether and how much to tax corporations is an economic decision, far removed from the question of personhood. While decisions about how people are treated in a society are based on fundamental rights, decisions about how corporations are treated are based on the strategic best interests of the society as a whole. Corporations may be important to people, they may employ people, they may be owned and run by people, but they are not people.

Veteran newsman Ted Koppel appeared as a special contributor to NBC’s “Rock Center” on Thursday to launch an apparent war on what he believes is “partisan ranting” masquerading as news coverage at Fox News, MSNBC and other partisan media.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

I disagree with Koppel on many issues, MSNBC's afternoon and evening shows do not pretend to be news; they are pure unadulterated commentary. Faux News pretends to be news, but is also commentary. That is a major difference. One can live with both so long as there is no deception. Fixed Noise deceives. Fair and balanced it is not. News it is not.

MSNBC is open about what its shows are, and it does not invoke "fear" in its viewership with lies, incendiary rhetoric, "Egypt Caliphate conspiracy theories", nor does it have a "Michelle Malakin", whom often is spitting, seething and drooling into the camera every night.

Looking back on TV history, this type point/counter point began long ago starting with shows like "Meet the Press" "McLaughlin Group" and "60 minutes" - that showed there was an actual market for this political discussion in addition to gotcha journalism.

Blaming MSNBC for "degenerating " politics is ridiculous. Saying that it has effected the ability for Congress to do it's job is more than ridiculous. The reality is, news is a business. What people are craving now is honest news, commentary based on facts - not full of fecal matter.

There was a basic false equivalency in comparing MSNBC to Fixed News, and that difference is Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch. Anyone who has seen the documentary film "Outfoxed" knows that what Faux does differs fundamentally from how MSNBC operates.


Faux News lies and uses predetermined talking points that come from the corporate suites - the opinions on MSNBC are those of the individual commentators. Furthermore, the standards of people Koppel threw under the bus are far loftier than the hacks on Faux News. Political voices like Rachel Maddow, Ed Shultz, Rev. and Al Sharpton [MSNBC] use facts to express opinion, not political directives from on high.

The piece also made a false equivalency in trashing the many straight news journalists that are to be found on MSNBC for most of the daytime broadcasting schedule. It was unfair to people such as Chuck Todd, Tamron Hall, Thomas Roberts, Alex Witt, Andrea Mitchell and others who present straight news. You will never find Faux news minions with the same journalistic professionalism.

While MSNBC may have a liberal slant in its opinions, it does not make up crap out of whole cloth like Faux News.

In case you missed it, Jon Stewart delivered what may be the best 10 minutes and 27 seconds you'll see on TV this entire campaign season. Stop what you're doing and watch it now! 

Mitt Romney hasn't been having the best week. A leaked video of seemingly classist remarks he made during a fundraiser in May has caused a media firestorm, and his campaign has taken a major hit as a result.

See, the whole scandal won't look so career-ending if you just scramble to find a flattering angle.

Voter Integrity Project

The Voter Integrity Project [VIP] has been fraudulently duping the citizens of this country claiming to be a non-partisan, non-profit corporation. Being a non-profit means that their tax returns are public record. Well according to the State of North Carolina they are not registered as a non-profit, they are a for profit business. Actually they are an affiliate of the Tea-Party Group true the vote.

VIP is devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud - this group of wing-nuts has willfully and willingly presented the N.C. Board of Elections with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote. Voter fraud is only .000004 % country wide.


The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 2012 and comparing them to the voter rolls.
“Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” said project director Jay DeLancy. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”

DeLancy said his group has found evidence to suggest voter fraud in these numbers, but will not quantify how much until he is able to do more analysis. Most cases of what look like a dead person voting are likely just administrative errors, such as a son named Junior voting in his father’s name instead of his own.

See the entire story via Rachael Maddow below:

Besides being factually challenged - a waste of valuable time, money and resources, these tea baggers are the pimple on the ass of society that never goes away.

NFTOS has debunked voter fraud numerous times, I can’t imagine anyone, never mind thousands of people going through the trouble of finding dead voters, identifying and going to their correct polling location, waiting in line and voting as that person all for one vote. You’d be better off going door to door or phone banking trying to motivate like minded voters to get to the polls, you know like most logical campaigns do during the voting season. Its like a teenage kid lying and deceiving to get out of homework, when the best thing and easiest thing to do would have been to just do the homework. Not the tea bagger, we going to show the world just how ignorant we are. Imagine what the tea bagger could have accomplish had they truly done something for the betterment of man kind, its obvious that this primitive form of human, you know the troglodytes [circa 2012 tea party enthusiast] only mission is to see Barack Obama as a one term POTUS. Yes, even if that means wake the "dawn of the dead"!

Lets face it readers, things aren't going so well for the teas this election cycle . Desperate times call for desperate measures, even if it is in the name of the galactically Stupid.

The American Taliban Rejects The Veterans Job Act 2012 

Forty dimwitted teapublican members of the United States Senate betrayed veterans yesterday when they decided that denying President Obama a victory was more important than spending $1 billion to create jobs for vets.

The bill that Senator Pat Murray wrote, the Veterans Job Corps Act of 2012 would have trained and employed veterans for jobs in forests, wildlife refuges, parks, cemeteries and other public lands. Murray proposed paying for the $1 billion tab over five years in part by collecting delinquent taxes from both Medicare providers and suppliers, and from individuals with more than $50,000 in unpaid taxes.

In a statement, Murray denounced the Republican blockade:
“It’s both shocking and shameful that Republicans today chose to kill a bill to put America’s veterans back to work. At a time when one in four young veterans are unemployed, Republicans should have been able, for just this once, to put aside the politics of obstruction and to help these men and women provide for their families.

“But this vote is stark reminder that Senator McConnell and Senate Republicans are willing to do absolutely anything to fulfill the pledge he made nearly two years ago to defeat President Obama. It doesn’t matter who gets in their way or which Americans they have to sacrifice in that pursuit, even if it’s our nation’s veterans.

Here are the 40 Republicans who voted to keep America’s veterans unemployed:

Alexander (R-TN)

Ayotte (R-NH)

Barrasso (R-WY)

Blunt (R-MO)

Boozman (R-AR)

Rubio (R-FL)

Sessions (R-AL)

Shelby (R-AL)

Thune (R-SD)

Toomey (R-PA)

Vitter (R-LA)

Wicker (R-MS)

The theme of the American Taliban [GOP] is "lose to win", sink to swim, escalate to disengage, shoot first, aim later.

Upon his Presidential arrival, President Obama was greeted with a Three Mile Island of an economy, so bad that in most paranoid recesses of the mind one could wonder if the "American Taliban" didn't plan it this way, to leave Obama in a position of having to prove the ultimate negative, that he staved off worldwide financial collapse, that if he had not done what he so swiftly did, that this economic cloudy day would have otherwise been the 'biblical flood of finance".

Yet since the onslaught of the tea bagger regime [2010 midterm elections] time and time again these do-nothings have done just that, do absolutely nothing. And at what cost? To ensure that Barack Obama doesn't win the November election? These very humans, whom can brush their own teeth, probably, provide us yet again, more choke and puke politics. I am not saying that these 40 Senators are intellectual midgets whom prostitute themselves to their radical base, who will do anything for big money, corrupt healthcare, and whose myopia could lead to the demise of this great country. I'm just saying -

If any two of the teapublicans on this list would have decided to put our veterans first, this bill would have moved forward. Instead, these simpletons, these teapublican Senators thanked veterans by denying them jobs.

This party aptly named "The American Taliban" [Senate Republican] actually fled from the media and refused to take questions at their weekly press conference yesterday. If you are represented by one of these senators, take the time to attend one of their events and ask them why they don’t want veterans to have jobs.

Between Mitt Romney’s secret videotape and yesterday's teapublican Senate vote, it is clear where the tea baggers stand. Twice in one week U.S. Soldiers where called moochers and job losers.

Is this what teapublicans consider patriotism? If so, I don’t want any part of their patriotism! Our veterans deserve better, and our nation’s deserves better leadership than this!

Only 47 more days until we get to go to the polls and vote for candidates who truly do support our troops.

Romney/Ryan Suffer From "Political Tourette's Syndrome"


Mitt Romney's 47% aren't who he wants you to think they are. Like most teapublicans, Mitt Romney wants you to believe they're single urban welfare moms with multiple children and no job, or unemployed slackers who refuse to work. But the truth -- the majority of the 47 percent are elderly Romney voters.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Romney's draconian callousness goes against the American grain. Americans do not see themselves as victims, but as potential winners, even in rough times. Romney's contempt for the 47 percent violates a central tenet of the American dream: anyone can make it. Romney is saying that half the country can't make it, doesn't even want to make it, and are parasites on the rest. Asking for their vote would be like Satan asking God to become evil. WTF?

Romney is a cynical man with a cynical tone, different and yet more convincing than his usual magniloquent public speech. The best defense of it - morally - is that it was designed for an audience of super-rich donors who say these things all the time in private, listen to Rush Limbaugh, and needed to be ginned up. He is whatever he needs to be for each separate audience. He aims to please the listeners of that moment.

So there are two possible realities: this is the true Mitt Romney, a callous cynic with contempt for half the country, or that Mittens is a man so empty of human qualities he even has to fake cynicism.

Remember, Mitt Romney is an economic royalist to the core of his being. When he disdains the poor, it is with the regal wave of the high born dismissing peasants. He dines on silver, defecates on a golden toilet, and would assume the throne of US president as its rightful heir.

Keith Olbermann Addresses the Romney video:

Stephen Colbert depicting Mittens:

For the benefit of the factually challenged, nothing is more subtle than this condescending tea bagger telling 47% of the country that you're lazy and unwilling to work. Remember readers that the word "honest" as is important as the word "debate". The latter without the former is better known as "Political Tourette's Syndrome". This syndrome is a functionality of both Romney and Ryan.

It is in these last few weeks, self evident that the greatest threat to our nation is not terrorism, not the economy, nor the latest virus nor health care, no readers, the greatest threat to the United States is rank, willful stupidity! When did we come to extol stupidity ahead of factual information and rely on conspiracy theories, lies, and prejudice ahead of education? When did we start to elect the "impregnable" dense?

A house divided against itself cannot sustain itself, this country cannot endure, permanently half smart, and half stupid. The time has come to rise above self imposed ignorance, to rise up and take this country back to the sane again, make it safe for the people whom actually completed the seventh grade.

This country cannot survive the continued endorsement, the continued acceptance, the continued encouragement, the institutionalization, of stupidity.

President bush and his administration lied and lied often - by the counting of one non-profit group - 532 times did they lie about links between Al Qaeda and Iraq. Only 28 of those where G.W's lies, but he more than made up for that by lying 231 times about WMD.

Whether it's bold face lies or a contempt for 47 % of your countries humanity, its time to call a spade a spade. Mitten's and lyin Ryan's relentless attacks on women, African Americans, Hispanics, elderly, students, middle class has to end on November 6th, for if not the America you see now will sure cease to exist. Romney and Ryan suffer from "Political Tourette's Syndrome", lets not allow this disease to enter to coveted offices of the White House and Vice Presidency.

Mittens Explains his disdain and contempt for the 47%

..."Those People".....

In a span of two weeks. two titans of knee-jerk, Reich-wing. brains-free, racist, xenophobic, delusional, greedy, unfeeling, inept, indifferent, self-inflating, and unconscionable profitable voices of the lunatic right wing fringe self destructed.

It's official, Mitt Romney is a douche bag! It's not normal that another's words piss me off, but Mittens has accomplished what little can do. It's not the sophistry of this simpletons views on our country that infuriates me, its the refusal to use any intellectual energy in arriving at it. You can always tell, can't you, Mittens, when the hostage is reading his own ransom note, and when he is reading one written for him.

Mittens got caught up in the moment, the moment of boasting to rich radical tea baggers, which always seems like a good idea, that is until you find yourself in the terminal stages of an answer so labyrinth, so filled with double entendres, disdain and content, that you remember a time when you're not in front of these radical tea baggers lost in your own sentences.

According to the right-wing paranoia prophet, [at a 50, 000 dollar a plate fundraiser in Florida recently] Mitt Robme tells his tribe of banshees his true feelings about 47% of Americans:
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."
"My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," 

The facts that the ignoramous ignored: [see chart below]

A few mere problems with the idea of the overburdened "53 percent." Many Americans don't pay federal income taxes, in part, because of deductions like the child tax credit that have been championed by conservatives and progressives alike. Almost all of the "47 percent" do pay other federal taxes in the form of Social Security and Medicare payroll deductions and gas levies, as well as a variety of state and local sales and property taxes that aren't dependent on income.

Unraveling an often stated teapublican myth about who pays taxes in America - newly pertinent due to Mr. Romney's astonishing words in a leaked video that just came out.

A wise man once said:
"Teach a man to fish, and he will eat for life, Society is built on an individuals responsibility and access to opportunity.

A teapublican will then slash the fishing education, vilify the teachers, reward the corporate fisheries, gut regulation on protecting the fishing industry, all the while whining, that teaching a man how to fish is socialism, and then and only then, will they blame the 47% of its citizenry for being lazy and wanting/waiting for government handouts "
Cognitive dissonance is, in the simplest of terms - a state of holding two or more conflicting ideas or beliefs at the same time... This is what is required to believe the radical teapublican theocracy. Robme and Lyin Ryan should have a new campaign strategy, which is to have their mouths wired shut until after November 6th.

NFTOS readers, let's not let a few dumb things Mittens has said in private overshadow the many idiotic things he's said in public!

Of late, we have learned that this magical underwear tour, this very bombastic dynamic duo, has very little quantifiable brain matter to occupy the two top offices of our country.

You have sat too long Mittens for any good that you may think you have been doing lately. Depart, I say, and let us be done with you! In the name of God, go!

The debt ceiling deal has left the Tea Party more disliked than ever, as a recent New York Times poll shows. In April, 2010, 21 percent of Americans approved of the Tea Party while 18 percent disapproved of it. Now, 20 percent approve while a stunning 40 percent disapprove of it. Ironically, the conservative movement is now more unpopular than two often-marginalized groups it sometimes rails against — Muslims and atheists — and is the least popular of the 23 groups the poll asked about:
The Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.

The American Taliban (GOP)

Former teapublican presidential hopeful Rick "Frothy" Santorum, addressing attendees at the Values Voter Summit on Saturday, said that:
“We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country. We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”
Describing a divide between the GOP and the media, Santorum told the audience that the media “doesn’t like the other side,” BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray reported yesterday.
“If just a few people make decisions about what this world looks like, what this country looks like,” he said, “then you have people sitting in offices at major media outlets and Hollywood who think they can deal with a small group of people, to get them to jump through the hoops they want you to.”
Santorum also criticized the libertarian wing of the Republican party who:
“don’t want to talk about social issues,” saying that “without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values of America.”

Unlettered is how the tea party likes it's base, the dumber, the better, hence the information disseminated from Fixed Noise on a daily bases. The GOP doesn't want educated people, or people who actually read (versus taking everything Rush says literally and as the absolute truth) to vote. Consequently, the voter suppression wars going on in the swing states that Romney needs to win. GOP ers don't want people who actually study the issues, because that would mean they would understand that Romney's true record portrays what a Presidential candidate shouldn't be.

Even a broke clock is right twice a day, and "Frothy" has never been more correct. Intelligent people shall always abhor the GOP in its current form. It's a political party on life support, but already in a brain dead state. This is their finale before taking their rightful place - which is the trash heap of history.

I say good for "Forthy" - for admitting the GOP is full of idiots, its the first step to recovery.

Flip-flopping Mitt Romney has been plagued by the question, "Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

Imagine how hard it is being Mitt Romney. "Let's see, which one am I supposed to be today? Am I the Tea Party champion, the hater of Obamacare, the crusader bent on tearing into the Nation's Capitol and tearing down everything Obama built, starting with that terrible health care plan based on...Uh Oh - based on my health care plan in Massachusetts?"

As we know, Mittens has a certain inability to connect with potential voters because of his frequent and very convenient shifts in views on pretty much everything - that along with his distortions of truths has solidified him as an unworthy President.

Gov." Dagwood " (I finally figured out what comic strip character he reminds me of) Romney can't seem to get his mind around anything of substance. He's not an orator, he's not a deep thinker, or a visionary. He's certainly not presidential material, though he looks like a president and that seems to be all he has gong for him.

Mitt Romney and the Teapublicans are practicing seditious demagoguery and anti-democracy obstructionism intended to destabilize our economy for purposes of social, political and financial exploitation.

Teapublicans aren't making a sincere effort to stop the bleeding their deregulated leadership and failed policies created. Instead, Mittens and Paul Ryan et al. are using inflammatory lies and false accusations as a smokescreen to conceal their subversive agenda, which is to cause the American people to blame Democrats for the consequences of their calamitous mismanagement.

Mittens is preposterously professing that his disgraceful political whoring and business ethics had nothing to do with his cut and slashing of companies for personal riches and personal gains!

Mittens and Ryan are trying to hamstring Democrats to prevent them from repairing the damage caused during the failed Bush presidency - enabled by teapublican Senators and Representatives.

Mittens is offering ridiculous arguments meant solely to disrupt and prevent constructive change. He'd rather create the suffering of American families than endure the political consequences of human centered effective governance.

Teapublicans aren't the loyal opposition; they are the enemy within whose mercenary priorities have eroded their moral and ethical standards to the point that duplicity and betrayal have become their preferred modus operandi.

It's one thing to advocate conservative beliefs; it's another thing entirely to willfully sabotage America's government because a Democratic presidency would not be vulnerable to the avarice, fears and bigotries that have produced and sustained the despicable teapublican anti-humanity corporatism and anti-Christian faux theocracies that are poisoning and crippling the American society.

Sooner or later, the real Mitt Romney must present himself to the American people. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?
