Fact-Check: Mitch McConnell Really Supports Your Big Business; TRUE!

Fact-Check: Mitch McConnell Really Supports Your Big Business; TRUE!

Washington outsider and regular everyman Mitch McConnell, Republican senator from Kentucky, has an ad claiming he supports big business, but does he really? Fact-Check: YES!

It turns out, true to his claims, Mitch McConnell really does stand up for mega businesses and the interests of his billionaire donors.

If you’re a billionaire donor, or billionaire potential donor, all signs say this turtle-American senator is fully for sale. Continue Reading

Mitch McConnell TV Ad Fact-Checked: TRUE

Mitch McConnell TV Ad Fact-Checked: TRUE

Washington outsider and advocate for change Mitch McConnell took a bold step this year, effectively crowd-sourcing his campaign commercials to the drooling masses.

This inspired strike of utter genius can best be described as “SmarTarded™” in a way Kentuckians may best be remembered.

This particular 30-second spot covers a lot of shaky ground claiming that Mitch McConnell supports women, women voters and women’s rights, as portrayed in the publicly available video released by campaign officials.

The video shows McConnell cavorting with a variety of average, older, minority and even surprisingly attractive women. At one point, a group of women hold pre-printed signs of support as if to say, “I support him enough to hold a sign if it means I get to be on TV, but not enough to actually make one of my own.”

Watch the commercial, then read the Fact-Check

We fact-checked the video; Rating: TRUE

Literally every citation shown on screen is accurately represented by the accompanying voice over.

We’ve taken the trouble to provide every single link ourselves so you can see just how honest this ad is.

Mitch McConnell’s Actual Voting Record on Women’s Issues

• Mitch McConnel voted NAY to S Amdt 4689 – Teen Pregnancy Education Amendment effectively making teens more vulnerable to unintended pregnancy.
• Voted for S Amdt 1757 – Prohibiting Federal Funding of Human Sexual Behavior Surveys, in effect to codify his preconceived notions, however wrong they might be.
• Voted against the S Amdt 244 – Unintended Pregnancy Amendment which would provide millions in pregnancy prevention and family planning.
• Voted to ban condoms without parent’s consent (effectively making them inaccessible, since few parents would give consent and fewer teens would have the courage to ask.) S Amdt 1390 – Contraceptives Distribution Amendment making teen pregnancy even more likely.
• Mitch voted against S 2578 – Protect Women’s Health From Corporate Interference Act of 2014 which allows employers like Hobby Lobby to restrict access to birth control.

All of this makes you more likely to have a child when you are young, poor, uneducated, or a combination of these things. But don’t worry, Mitch McConnell won’t support you once you have that child.

• Except that McConnell voted against HR 3963 – Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2007 (CHIP), meaning he didn’t even want your child to have health insurance.
• He sure as hell didn’t want additional children to have access to health care when he voted against HR 2 – Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization and Expansion
• While still supporting the food stamp program for farmers, he did try to make it much more difficult to qualify for assistance when he voted to S Amdt 2174 – Limits Eligibility for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
• States can get a bonus for reaching a higher proportion of those in need, but not under McConnell’s watch. McConnell voted to S Amdt 2172 – Rescind Bonuses to States for Administering Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
• Voted NO. S 2199 – Paycheck Fairness Act
• Voted NO again. S 3220 – Paycheck Fairness Act
• Voted NO a third time. S 3772 – Paycheck Fairness Act
• Didn’t like the S 181 – Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 which would make it illegal to discriminate wages based on gender alone.
• And if he doesn’t like those, you know there’s no way he’s going to support something called the HR 2831 – Equal Pay Bill. That’s just crazy talk.

BONUS ways Mitch McConnell supports women

• He voted against the S 47 – Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.
• He voted against providing S Amdt 3820 – Legal Immigrants Assistance Eligibility Amendment, which means, even though you are a legal immigrant, he still wants you to be discriminated against.

So why the hell would a woman ever vote for Mitch McConnell?

Beats me. Maybe it’s tradition or pressure from friends. Maybe it’s a lack of knowledge about who he is, what he supports or how he votes.

It’s certainly not because they like what he stands for. That would make them pretty awful people.

National Front Thugs Horrified: Hitler a “Dirty Foreign [Insert Profanity Here]“

National Front Thugs Horrified: Hitler a “Dirty Foreign [Insert Profanity Here]“

Most Americans have probably heard of the Front National in France, but not all US citizens may be aware of her somewhat less sophisticated and elegant sister party, the UK’s National Front.

But admittedly, this club of assorted knuckledraggers, boneheads and goosestepping eagle-polishers is so “edgy,” so far off the mainstream political establishment™, that it hardly picks up any votes.

Yes, the NF’s voting tally (not sure about tallywhackers, though) are consistently dwarfed even by the sum of protest votes garnered by fellow neo-fascists, the British National Party. Similarly, their fellow socialists, the Greens, tend to do “better” than the National Front in elections. Continue Reading

GOP End of Days Panic: Rick Perry Declares Himself the Anti-Reagan

GOP End of Days Panic: Rick Perry Declares Himself the Anti-Reagan

The GOP is getting worried about outside infiltration and even supernatural omens, as rumor has it that Rick Perry has revealed himself to aides as the literal anti-Reagan.

No need to worry about fire and brimstone, signs in the Heavens, and the standard apocalyptic phenomena which might conceivably be interpreting as heralding the end of days for some Republicans, as you’ll read.

There is a perfectly innocent (well, more-or-less innocent) explanation. Here’s what Rick has to say about the latest development in the War Against Reagan:

“Yes, it’s true. You’ve heard it. I’m the anti-Reagan. I do declare it. What does this mean? Well, Reagan began as a film star and then became more famous as a politician. But my career trajectory has gone in the opposite direction; I am a politician whose entire fame and fortune is founded on one short video from my election campaign. THIS CALL IS BEING MADE FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN TEXAS.

“Sorry about that, it does that every couple minutes. Yes, one great video. How many Democrats can say that about their careers? Or even Republicans? How about you, Rand Paul™? Huh? You may think you are a bit special™, a cut above™, a bit different from the rest of us in the GOP™, but how many viral videos with countless parodies have you made? THIS CALL IS BEING MADE FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN TEXAS.

“Wow, that’s really annoying, sorry about that. Where was I? Oh yeah. Hell, even Arnie; who is he? How many people watch Jingle all the Way, except when their kids get sick on the couch in December and you’re too drunk on Christmas spirits to care? But my media creation has stood the test of time. It doesn’t take a whole studio™ to make a video, it takes just one talented individual™. THIS CALL IS BEING MADE FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN TEXAS.

“Not sure if I’m being Punk’d or something. Texas has a ‘tough on crime’ governor, unless you elect some soft liberal after I’m gone. It really is pretty annoying and I’m sorry how this interview must be THIS CALL IS BEING MADE FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN TEXAS.

“Okay, again, how many Democrats or Republicans have ever achieved what I have achieved in the cinematic world? My video from that elections campaign, it’s got me, it’s got everything, an entire glorious technicolor universe of just about everything the heart could desire or contemplate: gays, the military, gays in the military™, militant gays™, educational issues, religion, politics, religious politics and the politics of religion; and did I mention gays in the military™x5,000? Phew! Wow!

“Oh, and militant gays™x10,000 too! I mean, it’s like the whole damn universe condensed into about three short minutes! Forget about Hollywood, have you ever seen a Hollywood film that is so vast and encyclopedic in its scope, yet lasts a shorter time than it takes to microwave a sandwich? Well? THIS CALL IS BEING MADE FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN TEXAS.”

I guess this means that Rick Perry always has something to fall back on. Well, if they ever make a film of Ronald Reagan, they will have to pick someone else, as it sounds like Perry is more into artsy-fartsy tableau miniatures, not mainstream stuff to be shown in standard cine-plexes.

Or he could pull a Tom Delay and go on Dancing with the Stars, or a Rod Blagojevic and take a spot on Celebrity Survivor.

With his talent for such an elevated form of cinematic production, he might even be able to continue his cinematic career in France, “le pays de la culture™”, although I guess we’d better not tell him that.

Ideas Man Newt Gingrich Finally Solves Fiscal Responsibility Problem

Ideas Man Newt Gingrich Finally Solves Fiscal Responsibility Problem

The new Newt Gingrich is re-branding himself as the Ideas Man™ of the Republican Party, but this time he’s outdone even himself with an astonishingly innovative solution.

“You know what, everybody? We all know about the fiscal responsibility problem, and it’s really intractable. Too much dogmatism on both sides, unwillingness to compromise, the whole complexity of the situation. You know I’m no idealist, I’m a practical thinker, not a bookworm. (Ouch!™ fail!).

“Well, I’ve got an idea that will solve all our problems in one stroke. Why not just abolish taxes? You can’t get much smaller government than that!”

This idea has actually been quite well received by both parties, although there are still some… shall we say, minor disagreements.

Barney Frank suggests abolishing taxes only for anyone not on an obscene wage, while Grover Norquist thinks abolishing corporation tax and all taxes for people earning above a middle-class income (however defined) is the right way to go.

Still, it looks like there’s going to be some progress on this issue after all.

Rand Paul Reaches Out To Dems, Promises Not to Ban “Washing-up” Agenda

Rand Paul Reaches Out To Dems, Promises Not to Ban “Washing-up” Agenda

Some Republicans view Rand Paul as a potentially divisive figure (i.e. one who will take some of their support away in critical demographics), but some of his opponents are actually impressed how he has built bridges with Democrats at cross-party meetings.

“You know,” says Rand’s new ally, Barney Frank, “I wasn’t all that sure about our good pal Senator Rand Paul at first, but I’m really impressed at his cooperative spirit. We sit around a table, decide who’s gonna do what, agree about it, and we get down to work.”

Paul even said this division of labor reminded him of that chapter in Adam Smith. Frank agreed with him: “You are so right, Rand!” They even devised the “washing up” agenda, which is best described thusly:

1. Buy what’s needed.
2. Who’s gonna run the water?
3. Scrub the dishes.
4. Gotta get the tableware dried, yes sir!

Frank said, “You know what, just today alone, we’ve already two down, two to go! You know, you used to hear so many people fussing about whether this agenda or that agenda existed; but now, as far as me and Rand and the other participants in our cross-party discussions are concerned, we can all just sit down and co-operate™, with a bit of healthy competition™, it’s great!”

Rick Perry is less impressed, as he commonly is:

“All right, yeah, tell me another one, so we finally acknowledge at long last that there actually is a washing-up agenda! Well, no surprises there! I’ve been saying it all along™, and so has Rick Santorum! But here’s the million-dollar question™; what precisely does this Rand Paul guy™ plan to do about it™, huh?”

But Rand Paul doesn’t seem to mind such criticisms.

In fact, he just gets up and walks away from uncomfortable confrontation.

“You know, when dishes need washed, someone has to step up to the mark and do what has to be done™. Maybe some of my GOP rivals wish they could set the agenda like I can™? Or maybe they just can’t stand it when a top Republican reaches out to the Democrats™ and tries to work together with them.”

Conservatives and Liberals Still Trying to Convert Each Other

WASHINGTON – A new poll of 1,000 American adults reveals that both conservatives and liberals believe it is possible to “convert” other people to change their political orientation.

The recent Gallmausen poll found that more than 63% of Americans believe that they can convince other people to adopt their position through such rhetorical tactics as shouting at them, incessantly repeating themselves, and vicious name-calling. Continue Reading

“Hey listen, this man Senator Rand Paul is great!” gushes Reverend Al:

“I mean, I haven’t seen such mutual engagement and co-operation for a long time! We can work with this man alright! And that blueberry pie; oh my gosh, I’ve never had such succulent blue-sky-colored berries and crusty pastry… wow! Continue Reading

Hillary is Not Bad at Basketball. Period. But She WILL be President

Hillary is Not Bad at Basketball. Period. But She WILL be President

Rachel Maddow of the left-leaning news network™ MSNBC has defended Hillary Clinton from malicious and false conservative allegations™ that she is bad at basketball. See this transcript:

“The enemies of the Democratic Party™, is there any depths to which they will not stoop™ to insult this woman with malicious and self-evidently false™, I mean absolutely ridiculously implausible allegations™?

“I believe if Hillary Clinton were a man, no-one would ever criticize her in this way™.

“I mean, she goes to a school to talk to the kids, misses a few hoops, and Republican trolls descend upon her like vultures, accusing her of bad faith when she actually correctly confirmed in her interview with me™ that she is quite the basketball player.

“Yes, all right, just have a look at this pic™ of Hillary being confronted by these people… and this twitter footage™… unbelievable, isn’t it™? You know, I have a suspicion™ that this school set the basketball hoop deliberately high, so that she would miss it.

“Worse than a glass ceiling, huh? You know, I’m not going to say for sure™, I mean there sure are a lot of Republicans in that State, and I guess I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions™. I guess this is a country where a certain kind of woman™…. Huh-huh!… like Palin or Bachmann, are permitted to thrive and prosper, but successful and talented women like Clinton™ go to the wall.

“By the way, people are saying that Elizabeth Warren is much better™, but I really… you know I really wish people would shut up about this other woman Elizabeth Warren™. You know, seriously dude… Hillary for President™… you know it makes sense!™ Oh… oh my gosh, sorry, I didn’t mean to™ explicitly endorse a possible future presidential candidate… my bad!™ Guess that’s media objectivity™ for you!”

Future opinion polls will determine what effect Maddow’s inadvertent endorsement™ of Clinton might have.

In a tearful Youtube video that Britney Spears has already endorsed, Pelosi explains: “The Church humiliated me™ because of my Principled Liberal Moral Stances™. Continue Reading

Congress Gets Unusually Creative In Its Ways Of Kicking Down Obama

Congress Gets Unusually Creative In Its Ways Of Kicking Down Obama

Just when you would think that Congress (aka Republicans) could not get any more creative in their undermining of just about every move that Obama makes they come with something that leaves you aghast that they actually do possess some degree of creativity.

No longer stonewalling and counter measuring everything the non-white man President does the Congress passed a measure to sue Obama over the actions he is taking in using Presidential procedure to make decisions.

Funny, they never did this when George the Second Bush went way beyond his legislative abilities to pass laws and to gut simple human rights (aided by his caretaker Dick aka. Vader Cheney).

As I remember they who are now so indignant at Obama sat back in their high seats and snickered. In other words its OK when one of their own good old boys do it, but not when the black whippersnapper does. Am I wrong or isn’t that the basis for fascism?

In an effort to waste more time and taxpayer money the Repubs are starting a ridiculous lawsuit designed to make themselves look good and tough and Obama bad. It is all part of a continuous manipulative effort to make better their chances for election wins in the present mid-term and for the 2016 Presidential election.

It is also a ploy to further handicap a President who would have gotten a lot more good done for the country had the Right worked with him a little bit rather than working him over. What could have been a landmarking term of office with vast improvements for all sections of American society has instead sunk into a morass of hatred and back stabbing resulting in a stagnation of our whole way of life.

In a way whose only purpose is to make the big boys in the right look good to their buddies and cronies and serves no other purpose but to gum up the governmental machinery more and cost us more tax money, the suing will bring no good to anyone except for a few lawyers to get richer and for a few redneck bigots to gloat more.

As though Obama doesn’t have enough to deal with already.

Why Are You Knocking On Our Door When Your Own Country Is A Mess?  or  Sorry, We Are Not A Professional Babysitting Company.

Why Are You Knocking On Our Door When Your Own Country Is A Mess? or Sorry, We Are Not A Professional Babysitting Company.

With regards to the sudden influx of children from Central America suddenly rushing our border and the questions over what the proper response should be, here is an interesting similar incident that happened a while back in Germany:

In the 1990’s there were a number of what I believe were either Somalian or Sudanese refugees (I cannot find the Internet links to the story) who had fled to Germany requesting asylum there.

There were questions as to the legitimacy of their status and as to whether they were really there to work or to get on the liberal social benefits programs that the nation offered. Continue Reading
