Jim Graves On Why Michelle Bachmann Must Leave Washington | Gun Control? No Way  

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

Large view of chart

Long Island Rep. Carolyn McCarthy has more than 100 co-sponsors for her House bill that seeks to limit the number of rounds in a single magazine to 10 shots, writes The Daily Beast.A shooter would have to stop and reload after 10 fires.

Colin Ferguson, the Long Island Railroad shooter who killed her hustand in 1991 had 15 rounds and was only stopped by passengers when he stopped to reload for the third time. The shooter of former Rep. Gabby Giffords used an oversize magazine with 33 rounds in the Tuscon massacre.

McCarthy works tirelessly in Washington, but collides headon with the National Rifle Association that is prepared to spend more than $50 million to see that no gun laws are changed in America to protect innocent citizens from madmen.

Under a Blood Red Sky The Atlantic

There is no direct cosmic or karmic line between the Columbine shootings, which left 13 dead and 21 wounded, and Friday’s mass shooting at a premiere of a Batman movie, which left 12 dead and 58 wounded or injured. This is because the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 forever changed the way our generation copes with mass murder. There is the before. And there is the after. Many people noticed Friday how well the local emergency responders and hospital spokespeople handled their grim duties. That’s because they’ve all been through it before. Over and over again. And so have the rest of us. We are un-drafted veterans of the rituals of sudden death. It’s an American thing.

Thinking Americans As Traitors

In a Word: McCarthyism

Michele Bachmann, John Sununu and a New McCarthyism StarTribune.com

Romney supporter John Sununu apologized for his recent comment “I wish this president would learn how to be an American.” But we all understand his message. A new McCarthyism is sweeping America as a trend Anne of Carversville has written about since 2007.

Even for those who accept that President Obama was born in Hawaii, that state is, don’t you know, unlike any other — multiracial, multicultural and in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Sununu, who was born in Havana, Cuba, has looked at the president’s background and decided it doesn’t fit, all irony apparently lost amid the bluster. Sununu’s guy Romney, whose father was born in Mexico, mostly stood back looking sheepish. “Plausible deniability” is what it’s usually called.

In the case of President Barack Obama, the intended message is: “He’s not one of use”. Obama is not alone.

Progressive women “aren’t one of us” either. For Catholic bishops, who launch their natural contraception only campaign tomorrow July 22, women who take birth control are not good Americans. In fact, all but the 2 percent of Catholic women who practice natural birth control are living in a state of mortal sin. They are going to hell.

Those of us who advocate for women’s health care rights are “slut girls” and unpatriotic, self-absorbed “me me me” women, because we have the audacity to think that we are not equal to a fertilized egg.

Supporting Planned Parenthood is a form of treason to right wingers. So is being inspired by the Statue of Liberty. She is a false idol say the right-wingers. Oprah is the forerunner to the AntiChrist. Progressive women represent Harlot Babylon.

The hypocrisy is nauseating!

Sen John McCain & Ex Campaign Manager Ed Rollins Condemn Michelle Bachmann's Attack on Huma Abedin

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

Secy of State Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma AbedinRepublican Representative from Minnesota Michelle Bachmann may have played one right-wing theocratic card too many in her unsubstantiated attack against Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin. Republican Ed Rollins, short-lived manager of Bachmann’s presidential campaign wrote in FOX News today:

I have been a practitioner of tough politics for many decades. There is little that amazes me and even less that shocks me. I have to say that Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s outrageous and  false charges against a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin reaches that threshold.

Her unsubstantiated charge against Abedin, a widely respected top aide to Secretary  Hillary Clinton, accusing her of some sort of far-fetched connection to the Muslim brotherhood, is extreme and dishonest. 

Having worked for Congressman Bachman’s campaign for president, I am fully aware that she sometimes has difficulty with her facts, but this is downright vicious and reaches the late Senator Joe McCarthy  level. (Joe McCarthy falsely made claims that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies inside the State Department in the early 1950’s. On December 2, 1954, the Senate voted to “condemn” McCarthy on  two counts.) 

Bachmann’s Grotesque Attack

Rep. Michele Bachmann tears a page from the national health care bill during a press conference at the U.S. Capitol March 21, 2012 in Washington, D.C. Photogaph by Win McNamee/Getty Images.Rep. MIchelle Bachmann supports the view of Frank Gaffney and other “anti-Islamofascists” that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the United States government. Specifically, Bachmann challenged the allegiance of Huma Abedin, who is married to former New York state rep Anthony Weiner, a strong supporter of Israel. In her 16-page letter written to fellow Mn Rep and Muslim Keith Ellison, Bachmann wrote:

Given the reasonable assumption that Ms. Abedin has a high-level security clearance, as a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence I am particularly interested in exactly how, given what we know from the international media about Ms. Abedin’s documented family connections with the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, she was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance.

John McCain Defends Huma Abedin

In a rare move against a Congressional colleague, Senator John McCain took to the Senate floor today, to speak directly about Michelle Bachmann’s charges. Slate quotes McCain

These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way. These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis, and no merit. And they need to stop now.

Donna Brazile Speaks to America's New McCarthyism | Pundits Cite Republican's Anita Hill Moment

Rick Santorum’s Money Man Tells Women — Married and Single — To Keep Their Legs Together With An Aspirin Between Their Knees

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

‘Father Knows Best’ is an American radio and television comedy series which portrayed a middle class family life in the Midwest. It was created by writer Ed James in the 1940s, and ran on radio from 1949 to 1954 and on television from 1954 to 1960.Democratic strategist Donna Brazile is the first pundit we’ve read to speak of America’s new era of ‘McCarthyism’, putting her views front and center for The Daily Beast. Planned Parenthood is Amrica’s most fervent target of ‘McCarthyism,’ writes Brazile.

While Planned Parenthood is a popular target of right-wing rage, the organization is not alone. More than ever, these brand bullies have come after all kinds of theoretically noncontroversial organizations. Current targets include JCPenney, for using Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. They include the Girl Scouts, for a tenuous connection to a Planned Parenthood education project. They include the hardware chain Lowe’s, for the sin of advertising on a television show that provided neutral coverage of Muslim Americans.

The backlash against the Susan B Komen foundation’s attempts to defund Planned Parenthood suggests that it may have triggered a call to arms that our modern McCarthyism mindset has to stop. We don’t want every DFR page to devote itself to the daily onslaught against women. But Republicans give us no choice. The battle is on. Anne

Democratic Women Boycott House Contraception Hearing After Republicans Prevent Women From Testifying ThinkProgress

Severe Conservative Syndrome NYTimes

More DFR

Among the guests on the Family Research Council’s anti-contraception coverage webcast held last week was Walker Nickless, the Bishop of the Diocese of Sioux City, who warned that the contraception mandate was literally a plot by the Devil to undermine morality and that Christians “have to stand up and violently oppose this” in order to avoid being overtaken by Darkness.

The Bishop’s comments ignore the large number of prominent Catholic organizations, universities and hospital organization led by Cathoic priests and nuns to support the Obama compromise on contraception.

Second, the Vatican’s exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, a man who says he has dealt with 70,000 cases of demonic possession in 25 years, said in March 2010 that “the Devil is a work inside the Vatican.”

Male Dominated Contraception Hearing

Time will tell whether today’s spectacle of today’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s hearing on President Obama’s recent contraception mandate will be an Anita Hill moment, writes Politico.

“I think it is an Anita Hill comparison,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), who staged a walkout of Democratic women in protest of the chairman’s decision not to seat a minority female witness at the start of the hearing. “I hope it will be just as galvanizing.”

AOC Sexual Politics

First Rick Santorum found himself explaining a comment about women not being emotionally competent to serve in leadership positions in the miliary. Then he appeared on ABC’s ‘This Week’ last Sunday, defending his statements in his 2005 book:

“Sadly the propaganda campaign launched in the 1960s has taken root,” Mr. Santorum, or his wife, wrote in the book. “The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness.”

Remembering that his book was hotly debated during his awesome 2006 political defeat, Santorum came up with Gloria Steinem as the source of America’s evils. Reflecting on her decision to be a stay-at-home mom, Karen Santorum felt that other women “looked down their nose at that decision.”

This is what Gloria Steinem REALLY, ACTUALLY said about working women: “We also have to re-define work, so that the work of caring for children and doing human maintenance in the home is counted as productive work, and has attributed value.”

Note: her words were radical, but NOT against stay-at-home moms. We lobbied hard for mom’s work to be recognized and valued, and lost EVERY battle in Congress. This is why America is 1 of 3 countries in the world with no legislated family leave policy. The other two countries are Swaziland and Papua, New Guinea.
