Anybody got any liberal viral emails...?

You know... like the ones from your crazy uncle who thinks Obama is a Muslim from Kenya.......only the lies are the other way around...
"Cruz is really a shape-shifting reptilian alien"....

I have searched and searched, and I can't find any.
There must be someplace I can get a few.

Aren't there any paranoid whackjob liberals who just make shit up and ship it out wholesale?

I know I can make up a few, but that's more work than I'm willing to do to light up the few RWers I know who like that shit.

Who is the Republican "establishment" candidate....?

Trump says he isn't... and it's true. (Maybe the only true thing he says.)
Cruz isn't. The Senate hates him, and he's getting no Repub endorsements.
Rubio isn't...

Was Jeb the establishment candidate?

Or did the Repub establishment just not field a candidate this election?

OK...OK.... I listened to Rush for a few minutes... I know....WHY?

Because now I understand why his minions are so fucked up and confused.

First.... “Online Trading Academy”..?? That’s the sponsor. Seemingly, of not only Rush, but of the whole radio station in Seattle. Sounds like “Fleece the Suckers” as far as I can tell. Nobody makes money day trading.... unless to sell the idea to the suckers. The other sponsors are for testosterone clinics and local businesses that don't mind being tarred with the RW brush.

Next... I can’t tell who the “Republican establishment” wants for the Repub presidential candidate, since Rush seems to think that everybody - including Trump - isn’t who the Establishment wants. Rush seems to think they all are not conservatively Pure enough.
Medved and some of the other Talking Turds are against Trump, but I can’t tell if Rush is. That weasel is weaseling all over the place.

Finally, Rush seems to be saying that NObody is conservative enough. He said that when Goldwater ran in 1964, he was the Repub establishment candidate, and not a true conservative. (Wasn’t Goldwater known as “Mr. Conservative”?) Goldwater was defeated, but the unhappiness in the Repub voters about Goldwater led to the Reagan Revolution and the triumph of conservative values.(!) Rush feels the Repubs have to get back to conservative values, and none of the current crop fit that description. 

J. F. C. .... my neck is sore from trying to follow all the twists and turns in that corkscrew logic(?).

The little pea-brains that listen to him must be SO confused. I like what he’s selling... Keep going to the right, Repubs. No... further yet! You’ll win eventually!

I’m going to shower now... and use a LOT of soap. That shit can’t be good for your mental and physical health.

You need a laugh...

Stumbled onto a site that claims that Trump is gonna win big... apparently Trump is gonna win OR, CT, and VT. WTF... I mean WTFF?


Here's a couple of comments from that page...

"Clinton doesn't have a 50% chance look at the polls, talk to people outside your circle, you will see and as for "hoping the race is decided by the House of Representatives" you must be out of your mind to leave the most important decision of this Presidential race to a group of stablishment communist liberal progresives. Do you really have any faith on any of these leaches to be honest, unbias and fair? LOL >>#Trump2016"

Eugenia #### High School

I've never had a post dumped before....

.... but I'm willing to chance this one.

Yes, yes... I know it's stereotyping and all like that, but the target of the video is certainly worth stereotyping the way some gay men talk.

"Illegal immigrants got $750 Million in Obamacare"...

Saw that on FB... about a day old.

The post says the Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee made a report to that effect. I cannot find the report itself... every RWnut site on earth references the Fox News(?) piece. Fox doesn't re-direct to the actual report, either.

Anybody have anything on this? I have the snopes and Politifact denials that it could happen all ready to post, but are there any new developments? I'm wondering if Fox just made it up out of whole cloth.

Anybody know about this?

What happens if an agent provocateur...

from outside fires a couple of shots at/near the Bundy-ites?

The Feds need to be thinking about that.... some wild-card asshole wanting to stir things up.... start the revolution.

If I can think of it.. you can bet those assholes can think of it.

The Feds need to act. Soon. I'm not saying a full-on assault, but they've got to clear those people out before something unforeseen happens.

Bundy "Sovereign citizens"...

I know this has been dealt with on DU before, but the Bundy assholes are part of the "sovereign citizen" bullshit movement.

I found this on the Bundy Ranch site....I went there so you don't have to. This is some cuckoo-bird stuff.

January 5, 2016. Letter to the sheriff
Dear Sheriff David Ward
Harney County, Oregon

In light of the ongoing protest as a result of the oppression of many in your county, I would like to share my thoughts and offer my assistance regarding your involvement in this matter.
You put yourself up and presented yourself to run for theelected office of Sheriff, You have been elected by the good citizens of Harney County and made an oath to them to protect their Lives, Liberties and Property. As a sworn protector, You promised them that you would protect them from enemies both foreign and domestic. You promised and assured them that you would support and defend the U.S. Constitution. You solemnly swore and entered into an oath before God and the people that you would uphold these promises.
Sheriff, your oath was not made to the federal government nor any of their corporate entities such as theBLM or Forest Service etc. This oath was quite the contrary that created a Sacred duty, to serve, protect and defend every single one of your citizens like a hen protects her chicks against all threats. Don’t forget who your boss is, we the people of Harney County. For the sheriff to allow anyone or anything to violate the rights of his people, We The People, is a dereliction of duty of the highest order.
I must ask, what happened to the protection the Hammond family did not receive? Where were you when a foreign entity not having any constitutional power, authority and jurisdiction within your county abused your citizens? Imprisoned them, restricted them from using there resources to make a living, ruining their way of life and violating their customs and culture and charging them with heavy fines. These were the people you swore before God and the people to protect. Why did you forsake them?
Have you taken sides with the Feds? Are you scared to do your duty? Are you ignorant to what your duties are? Are you scared of how the Feds may react if you actually perform your sworn duties? I would really like to know what your excuse is for not honoring your oath of office as Sheriff of Harney County.
In the wake of your abstanance you now have some very important decisions that need to be made very soon. It should not be a hard decision understanding your purpose of existence as stated in the oath you have taken. The choice is simple, A. to turn a blind eye against your people and continue to collaborate with the Feds, pushing their agenda to remain in power and control over the people and their resources and to continue participating with fear mongering tactics such as shutting down schools etc. and now participating in the new growing threat of violence by the Feds toward peaceful protesters. or B. Re-commityourself to uphold and perform your duties to We The People of Harney County and utilize the protesters that have come to your peoples assistance and say simply, no to the Feds and rid your county of their presence and tranny that they have spread across your County.
Understand that the protesters have peacefully assembled only to support you and your people who are and have been oppressed by Federal over reach. Understand that theirassembly is a constitutional right and act. Understand that they do not intend any harm to anyone, they sincerely want to restore the rights, land and resources that belong to thepeople of Harney County who have pre-emptive rights to them and non other, especially any federal Corporation. Understand that Constitutionally it is impossible for the federal government to own or manage land outside the bounds and terms stated in art. 1 sec. 8 par.17 of the U.S. Constitution. Remember that governments were instituted among men & women for the security of the rights of the people and that when governments begin to abuse those rights and fail to secure them, it is up to non other than the people themselves to uphold those rights, it is their right, it is their duty to dispose of the tyrannical government infringing upon those rights. (see the Declaration of independence.)
This sheriff is why citizens all across this nation assemble at times for regress of grievance for the respective oppression to cease. For this reason the protesters have come to your county. They have come hoping for your blessing and support and to support you in the changes you will need to make. Remember that you have the authority to promote a positive and forthright outcome working with the people to create liberty and prosperity in your county. However you also have the ability to exercise your individual agency and abuse your office and power given you to continue your lawlessness. If you continue in this direction, I’m afraid you may have blood on your hands.
Sheriff, I respect the office that you hold and the awesome responsibilities that are your’s and pray that you may be given the strength to say simply no to the feds, rid them of your county, give back the lands and resources to the people whom they were taken from and ultimately restore prosperity and liberty in your county. I know that would be the right thing to do, I believe as a steward with the accountability to the people, God will be pleased with and uphold you.
I do not reside in Oregon but can be available at your request to help you in any way I can to restore the rights of the people of Harney County. Sincerely, your supporter.

Dave Bundy

I was just sitting here having my first cup of coffee and (sort of) watching...

... MSNBC. There was a walking interview on.. Pres Obama and Matt Lauer.

What an intelligent man... well spoken, thoughtful....human and humane.

I disagree with him on some really important things, but that man is truly what this country should be about.

His treatment by the racists and Republicans - they're the same - is a national shame.

Sorry for the glurge... I seldom write "fan letters", but we should all thank the FSM or whatever that he's been our President, as opposed to the Clown Car on the other side.

I'm going around and around with a RWer about the National Guard...

This is, of course, related to the terrorist take-over of the wildlife refuge in Oregon.

I read, from Title 10, that the President doesn't need authorization from a state to Federalize the Guard in that state.
The RWer says the President has to get permission from the state Governor.

Anybody know for sure which way? Apparently Dubya did some kind of a change, and then the change was repealed. I've researched, but can find no definitive answer.

Here's Title 10 for reference.. Title 32 is at the URL below.....
"10 USC § 332 – Use of Militia and Armed Forces to Enforce Federal Authority: Whenever the President
considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the U.S.,
make it impractical to enforce the laws of the U.S. in any State or Territory by the ordinary course of judicial
proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces
as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion. This section is a statutory
exception to the Posse Comitatus Act.
6. 10 USC § 333 – Interference with State and Federal Law: The President, by using the militia or the armed
forces, or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to suppress, in a
State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy if it:
a. So hinders the execution of the law of that State, and of the U.S. within the State, that any part or class
of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity or protection named in the Constitution and
secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State are unable, fail or refuse to protect that
right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or
b. Opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the U.S. or impedes the course of justice under those
laws. In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal
protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.
7. 10 USC § 12406 – Air and Army National Guard: Air and Army National Guard call into Federal service in case
of invasion, rebellion or inability to execute Federal law with active forces."
