The Coming 4 Years for a ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Birther Convention Planned For Arizona’

Come on America!

Elect Republicans so they can ‘take back America’…….for themselves!

‘A convention following the GOP convention is being planned in Phoenix, AZ. The website selling tickets for the event describes it as, “A Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots Event. Sheriff Joe and his call for Congressional investigation of fraudulent documents.”

‘The fraudulent documents in question being, of course, Obama’s birth certificate(s). The event is scheduled for September 22, and will last about two and a half hours’.

‘Multiple speakers are supposed to be there, such as Pat Boone and the infamous Sheriff Joe Arpaio’.

‘They will be planning to ask Congress to investigate Obama’s birth certificate, which is allegedly forged’.

‘Boone has also been quoted as saying that Michelle Bachmann would make a good president and that Obama is certainly a Muslim, going as far, in fact, as to say that Obama celebrates Ramadan, but no Christian holidays’.

‘Another speaker at the event is the former Army doctor Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who was dismissed from the military after refusing to deploy because of his belief that President Obama wasn’t qualified by birth to be President of the United States’.

‘He was also later denied a medical license by the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts because his failure to deploy as ordered could put soldiers’ lives in danger’.

‘The crowning jewel of the birther convention is, however, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’.

‘For months, the sheriff has been promoting the fringe conspiracy theory of birtherism, which claims Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake and therefore he is ineligible to be president. But Arpaio took it to a grand scale with his latest stunt, promising to reveal “shocking” information about the document’.

‘What he and his “investigator” ultimately presented, however, was something less than shocking. They spun new webs of the conspiracy, alleging secret codes were hidden in the birth certificate and claiming they found an elderly witness who could decipher the cryptography’.

The Coming 4 Years of a ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Todd Akin and the Anti-Science House Science Committee’

The ‘New’ republicans for a ‘New’ Dark Age for America!

‘Aside from the sheer biological ludicrousness of Todd Akin’s ideas on female physiology, one unsettling subplot to the debacle is his presence on the House of Committee on Science, Space and Technology’.

‘That’s right’:

‘A man who, to put it gently, ignores what science tells us about how babies are made, helps shape the future of science in America. It would be shocking, but for the fact that many of the committee’s GOP members have spent the last several years displaying comparable contempt for climate science’.

‘Now, there’s no question that climate change is less well understood than human reproduction. The rate at which warming permafrost will release methane is open for debate, whereas it’s a long-settled fact that women can become pregnant from rape. But in both cases, there exists a factual proposition that can be studied through observation and hypothesis-testing — and it’s the scientific method itself that’s ultimately under attack in the House science committee’.

‘The committee’s chair, Ralph Hall (R-Texas), lumps “global freezing” together with global warming, which he doesn’t believe humans can significantly impact because “I don’t think we can control what God controls.”

‘Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA) thinks cutting down trees reduces levels of greenhouse gases they absorb’.

‘Mo Brooks (R-Alabama) still trots out the debunked notion that a scientific consensus existed in the 1970s on “global cooling,” which he portrays as a scare concocted by scientists “in order to generate funds for their pet projects.”
‘We ought to have some believable science.’Dan Benishek (R-Michigan) strikes that climate-scientists-as-charlatans note, dismissing contemporary research as “all baloney’.

“I think it’s just some scheme.” Paul Broun (R-Georgia) says that “Scientists all over this world say that the idea of human-induced global climate change is one of the greatest hoaxes perpetrated out of the scientific community.”

‘Broun, who likens the CDC’s encouragement of fruit and vegetable consumption to “socialism of the highest order.”

But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Mississippi Governor Blocks Benefits For Immigrants Granted Deferred Action’

‘Gov. Phil Bryant (R-MS) has ordered state agencies to prevent undocumented immigrants who benefit from President Obama’s deferred action directive from receiving any state public benefits’.

‘He said his executive order stopping the state from granting benefits to DREAM Act-eligible youth who qualify for the federal policy follows current state law’.

‘Mississippi already bans state agencies from providing benefits like unemployment payments or food stamps to people who are not U.S. citizens or legal residents’.

‘Republican governors in Arizona and Nebraska issued similar orders after the deferred action policy went into effect August 15’.

The Coming 4 Years of a “Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Missouri conservatives rally to Akin, blast Republican “establishment”

They’re  ‘outraged’ because the Republican establishment tried to run him (Akin) out of the race?

Let’s remember EXACTLY what he said and THEN look me streaight in the eye and tell me you weren’t ‘outraged’ at that.

Rep. Todd Akin :

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in a clip posted to YouTube by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

So ‘from what he understands from Doctors’, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare.’

AND……………..

“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

So Missouri ‘Conservatives’, YOU’RE OK with a man representing you that gets his knowledge and advice from ‘doctors’ who tell him pregnancy from RAPE is rare………….

AND…………..

That if it’s a ‘LEGITIMATE’ Rape, well women’s bodies ‘have ways of shutting that whole thing down’.

That doesn’t ‘outrage you Missouri Conservatives?

Really!?!

So if I or ANYONE asked for you to ‘show me’ where there is a State who’s people believe in defining what is a ‘LEGITIMATE RAPE’ and why if it is, then a women’s body will ‘shut that down’.

So people that STUPID would be Missouri ‘Conservatives’.

“At first I felt (Akin’s comments) were offensive to women and insulting to my intelligence,” said Lisa Payne-Naeger, a member of the conservative Missouri Grassroots Coalition, who has an online political radio show. “What changed it for me was the Republican establishment’s effort to chop him off at the knees and install one of their own in the race.”

‘Payne-Naeger said she was so angered by the “onslaught” from party leaders that she donated to Akin’s campaign on Wednesday’.

‘Nearly two dozen Missouri Republicans interviewed on Wednesday and Thursday, most of them in the St. Louis area but some in other parts of the state, expressed similar views’.
