Megyn Kelly Debunks Claim that Welfare Recipients are Drug Using Mooching Monsters

I don't usually cite anything from Fox News if I want to present factual information, but I will if that's what it take to get through to a right winger. I already detailed this absurd policy my current Florida governor Rick Scott thought would save money:

Drug Testing Welfare Recipients before they receive welfare benefits.

I was especially surprised when Fox News host Megyn Kelly did a report showing the so far failure of Rick Scott's welfare policy. I take my hat off to her on this one.


Media Research Center is Promoting Birther Website World Net Daily!!!!

A bombshell has been revealed exposing the Media Research Center (MRC) for the discredited organization that it is. The bombshell is pretty much something that's existed for two and a half years but I don't think anyone has noticed it.

While visiting MRC's website, I hovered my mouse over the resource section,

then clicked on "links", and it came up with this......

WHAT IS THAT?!?!? That looks likes a link to the birther central website WorldNetDaily. As a matter of fact it is.

"The MRC offers the following links as an additional resource for information on various organizations which help expose or counter liberal media bias in the mainstream press."

MRC recommends WorldNetDaily? Its bad enough they recommend the other kook conspiracy organization Accuracy in Media.

Just in case MRC panics and revises their website here's the earliest capture from the Internet Archive.


Another WorldNetDaily Conspiracy Theory: This Time Between Muslims and Gays

Haj Amin al-Husseini (Islamic Fundamentalist) meeting with Adolf Hitler
The birther central website WorldNetDaily approved by presidential candidates Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain is at it again. This time their owner Joseph Farah has decoded a long-term conspiracy between Muslims and gays. He's figured out that American Muslims are supporting gay marriage as part of a broader agenda. The long-term goal is to then open the door to one of scariest tenets of Islamic Law........


Anti-Gay Family Research Council Document: "Homosexual Activists Work To Normalize Sex With Boys"- Declassified:

You may have heard of these notable quotes from the Family Research Council. These are some of the many things that got FRC on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of hate groups. What's is in the document that these quotes came from is Protocols of the Elders of Zion type of propaganda used to defame gays and lesbians as dangerous pedophiles. Antisemites cite the Protocols as their influence. Homophobes cite the Family Research Council.
To read more on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion visit Skeptoid.

"...one of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the 'prophets' of a new sexual order." —"Homosexual Behavior & Pedophilia," a FRC publication, July 1999, http://www.frc.org/misc/bl057.pdf

"Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement." —"Homosexual Behavior and Pedophilia," FRC publication, July 1999, http://www.frc.org/misc/bl057.pdf

The FRC has removed the document from their site. They must not realize that there's no delete button on the internet. I've been able to obtain the document through the Internet Archive.

George Will: Bachmann Shouldn't be Trusted with Nuclear Weapons

George Will first said this about Sarah Palin. Before Bachmann was even officially for president running, Will said Bachmann was not a serious contender.


Rules of Engagement for 2012 Presidential Election

This will my second and probably my last time voting in the Presidential Election as a Republican. I've been a Republican for three years since I voted foolishly for John McCain in 2008. That was before I actually cared about and understood politics. I'll post in the future why I left the Republican Party. Here's a brief preview and reason: "The Republican Party and it's electorate have have lost their mind". My full "letter of resignation" will be detailed and lengthy.

Still being a Republican, I figured I might as well vote one last time in the 2012 Presidential Election. As many of you know Republican voters say they are not happy with the current GOP field. My personal favorites are Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. Both guys I disagree with on some issues particularly some economic issues. Gary Johnson is my first choice, but since he's not recognized enough I'm going with Ron Paul. If Paul doesn't win the primary or drops out latter I might go with Huntsman or not vote at all in the GOP primary. I'd be going with Huntsman just to give the GOP some credibility but not support him in the general election.

When it comes to the general election if any of these candidates get the GOP nomination, I'm pulling it for Obama and I'm switching to the Democratic Party. If this is what the Republican electorate is made up of now: Newts, Bachmanns, and Romneys/ Bigots, Christian Fundamentalists, and useful idiots pandering to corporate candidates, I can't be a Republican anymore.

Jon Huntsman
Michele Bachmann
Herman Cain
Newt Gingrich
Tim Pawlenty
Mitt Romney
Rick Santorum


Michele Bachmann Endorsed Birther Website WorldNetDaily

Lunatics are taking over the asylum. Now they are taking over the Republican Party. At the 2010 CPAC convention, Michele Bachmann gave a speech and said something that may come back to bite her in the 2012 presidential election. 


Just Say NO to Mitt Romney For President

There isn't much honesty, principle, or even sanity within the GOP 2012 field. With the exception of Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, and John Huntsman . One candidate GOP voters better make sure makes it no where near the White House is former governor Mitt Romney. Romney has got the hair, money, experience, and is in the the top four most supported GOP candidates among Republicans. But what exactly does this man have to bring upon our country? Much of it should be brought attention to and the rest is unclear giving Romney's flip flopping. Factors affecting him are of course the health care program in Massachusetts and President Obama's federal plan, abortion, gun control, immigration, gay rights, and yes... his Mormonism.


Is Santorum Blowing It On Homosexuality?

No pun intended. Dan Savage has warned presidential candidate Rick Santorum that he will redefine the word "Rick" as he did with "Santorum" if the candidate does any gay bashing BS.

I don't think he's off to a good start.

SANTORUM: If the Supreme Court gives the right to consensual sexual activity then you have the right to incest, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to all sorts of — you have the right to anything if it’s consent. When I said that, the gay community went ballistic and they came after me. The mainstream media called for me to resign because I was comparing homosexuality to incest and other things. No I wasn’t, I was saying if the standard is consent than how do you rationally draw to the line, you can’t. And they aren’t. And subsequent to that the Massachusetts decision and others came down and I stood for marriage. [...]
It is not fine with me that New York has destroyed marriage. It is not fine with me that New York has set a template that can cause great division in this country. There is not 50 definitions of marriage.
As Think Progress noted:

Lawrence, the Court did draw a line, noting that the right to consent has its limits. “The present case does not involve minors,” the majority ruled. “It does not involve persons who might be injured or coerced or who are situated in relationships where consent might not easily be refused. It does not involve public conduct or prostitution. It does not involve whether the government must give formal recognition to any relationship that homosexual persons seek to enter. The case does involve two adults who, with full and mutual consent from each other, engaged in sexual practices common to a homosexual lifestyle.”

Which is Better? Media Research Center or Accuracy In Media?

In my last post I showed the difference between  Media Research Center and what could be considered it's liberal counterparts. "Media Matters For America" and "Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting" (FAIR) are the most infamous. The difference is simple: MRC is about bias not accuracy. The blog Left Hook explained this further. Is there a conservative media watchdog organization that cares about accuracy in journalism? Well... one has accuracy in it's name anyway: Accuracy in Media or (AIM). Is it a true counterpart to MMFA and FAIR unlike MRC? No, in fact its as far from them as MRC is.
AIM mainstreams and pushes a conspiratorial mindset engaging in speculation, distorted half-truths, and unproved assertions of fact. In their world facts are NOT irrefutable.

Since it's founding and especially in the election of Obama its legitimized the craziest conspiracy theories and has said the craziest things such as:.
