scott walker on foreign policy

No intelliegence briefings.

No evidence.

Just wants to bomb….someone……anyone…..

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — ‘Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is doubling down on his promises of pre-emptive strikes to prevent what he says are certain future attacks on American soil’.

‘As he prepares for a likely 2016 presidential run, Walker told a multistate Republican gathering in Oklahoma on Thursday that he’s convinced “radical Islamic terrorists” are planning to attack the US’.

‘Walker offered no evidence for his claims at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. He also didn’t say who most threatens the United States or what military actions he’d authorize in response’.

‘As a governor, Walker has no access to intelligence briefings like those available to President Barack Obama and certain congressional leaders’.

WAR!! – Living In A Republican World – ‘John McCain Celebrates Memorial Day By Calling For More Americans To Die In The Middle East’

mccain on iraq

‘US Defense Chief: Iraqis ‘Showed No Will to Fight’ ISIS in Ramadi’
‘Iraqi security forces have “showed no will to fight” in recent battles with ISIS, resulting in the group’s alarming recent territorial gains, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said today’.

“We have an issue with the will of the Iraqis to fight and defend themselves,” Carter said in an interview on CNN. “We can give them training, we can give them equipment; we obviously can’t give them the will to fight.”(1)

————————————

So McCain wants to send in Americans to die fighting for ‘freedom’ in place of the Iraqis who run from fighting.

Republican Foreign policy………
‘Sen. John McCain celebrated Memorial Day weekend by going on CBS’ Face The Nation and calling for Americans to be sent to die in a new war in the Middle East’.

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R), ARIZONA: “I think there`s a lot of things we can do”.

“First, have the president recognize that he was incorrect when he said we`re not losing. We had before the Senate Armed Services Committee this week two architects of the surge that won. (When we had over 100,000 troops on the ground) And we did have it won until the decision was made to withdraw all troops”.

“And I won`t get into that fight with you, but Senator Graham and I predicted at the time that this would happen. I`m sorry we were wrong. We need to have robust strategy”.

“We need more troops on the ground. We need forward air controllers”.

Republican Clown Car – ‘Fox News Turns On Mike Huckabee And Tries To Kill His Presidential Campaign’

huckabee7

‘Fox News has decided that Mike Huckabee should not be the Republican nominee, so Chris Wallace went on the attack against Huckabee’s flat tax plan on Fox News Sunday’.

‘A recent study by Bruce Bartlett revealed that Fox News is harming the Republican Party by brainwashing their viewers. Fox News is trying to turn their viewers against the flat tax, which is a way of making sure that the presidential campaigns of Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson go absolutely nowhere’.

‘In other words, Fox News tried to kill Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign today’.

CHRIS WALLACE: “You want to abolish the income tax. You want to abolish the IRS and create a fair tax, which as you say is a national sales tax, but critics say the problem with that is that it’s too regressive. The Tax Policy Center said this, that “the average rate for the lowest income group would exceed 33% while the average rate for the top group would fall to less than 16%.” The argument, Governor, is that the rich, who spend less of their income, are going to end up making out pretty well on this, and the poor, who spend almost all of their income, are going to end up paying the most or at least the highest percentage”.

MIKE HUCKABEE: “They have it exactly wrong. In fact, it is the bottom third of the economy who benefit the most from the fair tax, and the people at the top third of the economy benefit the least. Although, everybody benefits some. That tax study is one that has been discredited”.

This is just a blatant lie. A National Flat Tax Sales Tax would kill poor and middle class people.

WALLACE: “Sir, doesn’t it just stand to reason that if I make five thousand dollars, I am going to spend a larger percentage of my income just for the necessities than if I make a million dollars I’m probably not going to spend as much of a percentage of my income because I’ve got more money”.

  • ‘Wallace followed up by going after Huckabee for his suggestion that if he is elected president he would not follow Supreme Court ruling that he disagreed with’.

Republican Christian Values – ‘Arkansas Police Destroy Josh Duggar’s Record After Mike Huckabee-Appointed Judge Orders It’

huckabeee on molesters

huckabee on molesters1

 

This, this protecting a child molester, just lost Huckabee Iowa, Hew Hampshire, South Carolina……well every State.

You don’t run around screaming everyone is a sinner and then protect a child molester.

 

After all, Josh had ‘confessed’ and been forgiven for molesting his sisters and other young girls.

So you don’t really need the police records – in fact it protects the young girls.

‘According to the Associated Press’ :

“Springdale police spokesman Scott Lewis said Judge Stacey Zimmerman ordered the 2006 offense report destroyed Thursday. Zimmerman didn’t return a request for comment on Friday”.

“The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record,” Lewis said, adding that similar records are typically kept indefinitely. “As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned, this report doesn’t exist.”

‘Huckabee even referenced the judge’s order in his Facebook post yesterday’.

“Those who have enjoyed revealing this long ago sins in order to discredit the Duggar family have actually revealed their own insensitive bloodthirst, for there was no consideration of the fact that the victims wanted this to be left in the past and ultimately a judge had the information on file destroyed—not to protect Josh, but the innocent victims.”

“Self-Professed Christians”: First Quote Jesus; Then Punish The Poor

mykeystrokes.com

Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker.” — Proverbs 14:31

It’s not my habit to start a column with a quotation from the Bible, but this one’s loaded with self-professed Christians, so why not?

In the mid-1990s, during my time as a metro reporter and feature writer for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, I started writing stories about people who lived in poverty.

I learned early to avoid certain words and descriptions that ignited the ire of certain readers who would rather shame fellow Americans for their dire circumstances than consider why so many of them live in poverty. And often just blocks away from our front doors.

As a columnist, I still sometimes fall back on those rules:

Unless crucial to the story, don’t refer to the flat-screen television in the living room or the car in the driveway, no matter how many miles are on it. A…

The moral crisis of our time and the coming economic disaster of our current bubble economy

John Hively's Blog: News and Analysis of the War Against the Middle Class

The United States is in the midst of an economic expansion, which happens to be the most sluggish in US history. Demand growth is at all time lows, or so it seems, yet the stock market bubble continues to expand outward, because massives amount of income and wealth are being legislatively redistributed from the 99 to the 1 percent at a rate never before seen in US history.

1 percent of the US population now receives 99 percent of all income growth, and 95 percent of all income growth since 2009. The rich received 8 percent of all income growth in 1980, 21 percent in 2008, and now 37 percent. What have they purchased with their thefts?

More corruption of government and the moral and economic crisis we have today.
