The GOP Using the NRA to Push for Full Blown Fascism and PoliceState

After the Sandy Hook massacre of babies no older than seven and 6 teachers by a single white male whose mother home schooled him and legally owned semi-automatic weapons, the National Rifle Association  was silent.. until today. Today Dave Keene, president of the National Rifle Association of America held a news conference and presented the NRA’s response and proposals to the Sandy Hook massacre.  ( )

It appears that so called freedom loving Republicans and gun owners, if you follow Twitter, support it. As a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and believer in why the right to bear arms exists ( )  I am flabbergasted, that anyone that SAYS they love freedom would even consider what the NRA is talking about.

The main theme of the news conference was to ask Congress to immediately take action to put armed guards in all schools. He equivocates the threats against Presidents and Congressmen and the peril they are in with the peril our children are in and therefore they need the same protection. (Of course children are not normally targets of assassination attempts unless it’s a terrorist attack. Which by the way is exactly what the Sandy Hook massacre feels like even if no one is calling it that).He went on and on about why aren’t we protecting  our children by putting armed guards in schools. I can actually wrap myself around that, if that’s all we were talking about here. But we’re not. Armed guards in schools means that from pre kinder age every child in American will grow up in an police state environment,  with a symbol of government authority and fear to mold them into acceptance of government authority and protection i.e. sheeple.

It’s not the armed guards that worry me though. It’s what comes with them. If there are armed guards what will they doing? They will be scrutinizing every single person that comes into the school. Every parent, sister, brother, relative or caregiver will be subject to presenting ID and searches. Everyone without exception will be subject to this. So in order to screen for one lunatic you strip an entire population’s freedom of movement.  To give the state or government this kind of power is to surrender our freedoms and live in a totalitarian state. This threat comes from the so called freedom and liberty loving right, not the liberal left. Go figure. The brilliance is it is all being done in the name of FREEDOM to bear arms. Brilliant.

In addition the NRA Education and Training Emergency Response Program
( ) was presented by Republican ex Congressmen ( take a look at where he’s been, including Homeland Security)

As if putting a policeman in the lives of every child from pre-kinder age was not bad enough, the NRA thinks  “our nation’s refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill” is to blame for gun violence. So one of the NRA’s proposals is that the government (the freaking ATF or Homeland Security) implement a database of everyone and anyone that goes to a doctor and is treated for anything that can be qualified as a mental illness. To be clear that means if you go to a doctor for depression or you are sad (melancholia) you are by definition mentally ill. (List ) If your child goes to a doctor and is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder he is labeled for the rest of his life as mentally ill and a potential threat to National Security. But it gets worse.

Let’s say the NRA gets their wish and the ATF and Homeland Security start this database, how is it used? If the purpose is to keep the mentally ill from owning guns, then doesn’t it stand to reason that anyone in there will be refused ownership of a gun? Isn’t that A HUGE infringement on the right to bear arms? How the fuck will this database with enormous anti privacy consequences be used?

How is it possible that so called freedom loving Republicans and especially the Teaparty speak of freedom and liberty, but actively support policies that are blatantly fascist and put control of everything in a powerful, totalitarian government? This includes forcing thru laws to put on everyone else their religious beliefs, their social beliefs and their belief in corporate control of our government that favors a ruling wealthy class. (Example: They support Citizens United calling if free speech, when all it does is promote a fascist control of our elections.) The right corporate media machine has done a superb job of brainwashing these voters into believing in a whole host of policies that are against their own best interest and their own freedoms. It’s stunning.

You have to be incredibly brainwashed if you love freedom, the constitution and the 2nd amendment to agree with what the NRA is proposing.  You have to be completely stupid or a hypocrite. You have to live on planet Foxistan to not see what the fascist corporate oligarch right is doing. While corporate media tell you liberals will strip you of your freedoms, and they tell you to look over there, under your noses and with your help they themselves are colluding with those that scream freedom and liberty to put this entire Nation under a police state where your every move is scrutinized and you’re considered a potential threat to ever more powerful government.

If the NRA gets their wishes the freedom to bear arms will be the excuse to take away every single freedom including the freedom to bear arms. The irony is that every day “conservative” people who say they love freedom, keep thinking the threat to our freedoms comes from those evil liberals, communist Obama or Democrats. Newsflash.  The threat was always from the right and the Democrats in power will just go along. They are all on the same page.

No one in their right mind that loves the Bill of Rights and the freedom to bear arms would endorse the NRA ploy to help our government transition to full blown fascism and a tyrannical police state. No one, least of all those of us that believe in the 2nd amendment and why it’s in the Bill of Rights to begin with. No one.  


Ever hear all that freedom and liberty on right wing corporate media. “The rise of freedom”, “freedom watch” or Hannity freedom this and liberty that?  They are so good at it that the Teaparty and GOP voters, everyday people, actually believe it.

Fascism is defined as “Extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice”. Philosophy of government that stresses the primacy and glory of the state, unquestioning obedience to its leader, subordination of the individual will to the state's authority, and harsh suppression of dissent. Martial virtues are celebrated, while liberal and democratic values are disparaged. Fascism differs from contemporary communism (as practiced under Joseph Stalin) by its protection of business and landowning elites and its preservation of class systems. The leaders of the fascist governments of Italy (1922–43), Germany (1933–45), and Spain (1939–75)—Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, and Francisco Franco—were portrayed to their publics as embodiments of the strength and resolve necessary to rescue their nations from political and economic chaos.

Listen to any Republican and all of this sounds very familiar.  They suppress dissent by suppressing the vote, a free press by attacking it as “liberal media” and the freedom to practice religion or NOT by passing laws that force all to abide by certain religious beliefs.  They speak of American superiority, exceptionalism, patriotism, wrap themselves in the flag and glorify loyalty to “fight for your country” to justify the corporate welfare and redistribution of wealth that comes with eternal wars for profit. They completely control the media by allowing the concentration of ownership and putting it in the hands of no more than five people who own our “free press”. While the First Amendment does not allow the government to infringe on free speech or the press, it does nothing to protect from corporations doing so. We have full blown filtered and censored media controlled by oligarchs and corporations that give us the appearance of political parties and left and right when in fact Congress is controlled by a plutocratic oligarchy that serves solely them.

The 2nd Amendment has roots in our history as a response to “standing armies” and tyranny

So When is the Right Time to Talk About Guns?

Today another batshit white man opened fire in a crowded place and this time it was in a school full of children from grades K thru 4. Imagine that? What kind of demented person does such a thing?  This is premeditated. You have to arm yourself and then travel to where to the place you picked out to unleash hell.

I am a firm believer in gun rights and the second amendment, but it’s enraging to see others with the same beliefs slamming those that are speaking of gun violence who firmly believe that we need some kind of gun control to prevent this kind of horrid violence.

They accuse those evil liberals of politicizing the mass murder of children and using them. So when the fuck is a good time to address this? There is something very wrong when kids can’t expect to go to school and make it out alive, or people can’t go watch a movie and make it out alive or you just can’t leave your house and expect to come home without being shot and gunned down by some batshit crazy motherfucker who has the right to have a gun in order to commit mass murder.

That is not what the second amendment is for. So when the fuck is it okay to speak about this? Some batshit #teaparty and conservatives who hate Obama have been clamoring about him taking away our guns when he has done no such thing. So NOW these same people are saying he will use this to do the very thing he hasn’t done. Some asshole actually tweeted that Obama should be impeached because he is behind the murder of 20 children today to take away our guns.

So who is really politicizing this shit and when the fuck will it ever be cool with these people to speak about the real fact that some fucking people have no fucking business owning a gun? When is it okay to say “damn its wrong that kindergarten children just got slaughtered because someone that had the right to have a gun shouldn’t have had the right”.

I don’t  believe in gun control and the American people should not lose the second amendment because of the select few batshit low lifes that commit mass murder. But we have to address how to make sure batshit motherfuckers don’t get a fucking gun, much less an automatic weapon.
So when, I ask those that believe in the second amendment, will it be okay to discuss this. How many more children have to die a violent senseless death before it’s okay?  Get a grip and stop being so fucking ignorant. We, especially, those of us that believe in the second amendment are the first ones that should be speaking about what to do.

Conservative Racketeers Feed Red Meat to a Targeted Audience for Huge Profit  (You Don’t Say)

First you start by demonizing your competition: “that liberal media”, because that’s all the other media is: it’s competition.  It’s not liberal.  It’s competition, so you want to turn people off to that competition and bring them to you.  (Media is not left or right. It’s CORPORATE and its for profit)

Then you feed that targeted audience that now believes there is evil liberal media “news” that they want to hear; “news” that just reinforces their deepest fears and suspicions. ( )  You give them the red meat they crave.

That’s what “ conservative media” for profit does. It’s a profit driven marketing of red meat to a targeted audience.  That audience has been fleeced by these racketeers but who are they? Dick Morris, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Karl Rove, Hannity, O’Reilly, the whole of Fox Noise and politicians like Gingrich, Santorum, Caine, Huckabee, Trump, Bachman and anyone else who ran in the Republican primaries have all done so for profit. It’s big business to run against the first Black president or have news infotainment outlets that bash the first Black, Marxist, Muslim, Satan, Communist, Socialist,  President .

There is a targeted audience that will eat up all that red meat and then like the idiots they are actually spread it and tweet it so that they are racking up even more profits for the racketeers. That audience should feel like the fools that they are. They’ve been used for profits and the racketeers are laughing at them all the way to the bank.

I am amazed that this is finally being reported in the media because of a Fox News contributor, a conservative by the name of Bill Kristol who writes for the Weekly Standard. (Could be FoxNews realized  its lost viewers thanks to the red meat fed to the them  regarding the elections that Romney was not winning.  (This is STUNNING.  Watch how Fox News after lying to viewers for months PRACTICE D how they were going to tell their audience about Obama winning the election including a Karl Rove meltdown. 6 minutes into the video the blond bubble head says “when we practiced this before we lost audio” )

Whatever the reason it’s about time conservative are now exposing the racket. Here are some links. (For those that indulge in the delusion of “liberal” media,  maybe there are people out there that don’t want you to know truth, like when Obama was winning the election.  Remember that conservatives are bringing this to light also. Just sayin….)

The Things That the Majority Voted Against in this Election

People comment about what sort of mandate the election gives to the President and Congress. I think its quite safe to say that the things the majority voted against this election were:

1.  self deportation of immigrants as a way to deal with immigrants that are here with no status.
2.  the religious right by voting for gay marriage, gay senators and against personhood candidates like Ryan and candidates that wanted to control contraception.
3. extending the Bush Tax Cuts for anyone making more then $250,000 a year (which is a platform the Pres ran on
4. the war on drugs, the prison industrial complex and prohibition by voting to legalize marijuana
5. 2 trillion dollars for the black hole that is the Department of Defense (the most corrupt department in government) and the platform that Romney ran on.
6. the Southern strategy which is how the Republicans tried to win this election (white, christian right vote)

So it would be safe to say that there is a mandate to NOT support any of the underlined above.

If You Are About Freedom and Liberty You Care When Rights Are Taken Away or Obstructed

If You Are About Freedom and Liberty You Care When Rights Are Taken Away or Obstructed

There was a time when the Teaparty was all about fiscal responsibility and personal freedom. Truly they were.  I believe quite sadly that this has changed, but I would love to be proven wrong. I challenge each individual Republican or Teaparty Republican that happens upon this site to stand up for the precious right to vote of every American. In order to do that you would have to make a concerted effort to learn about what is happening right now, this minute in states where restrictive poll  ID laws have been passed by Republican governors. If you are truly about freedom and liberty you will.  See Allegations of Voter Fraud from the Brennan Institute for Justice 

Prepare to be nauseated if you truly believe in freedom and liberty. See the stories of real people especially seniors whose right to vote is being obstructed here:  (Like Virginia Lassiter, 91, from TN  whose right to vote is threatened by Republican ID laws and dozens more. )

See how Republican strategists admit that these laws are meant to keep the ever rising Latino vote suppressed: "I sat in on many meetings where it was discussed how to make sure what happened in 2008, when Obama brought out the college-aged voters, the minority voters, never happened again" said Jim Greer.  (Voter Suppression Series Part II: Florida ) Is that freedom and liberty and should anyone win an election by stripping others of the right to vote in a democracy?

“I want the people in the State of Florida to want to vote as bad as that person in Africa who is willing to walk 200 miles for that opportunity he’s never had before in his life,” said GOP State Senator Michael Bennett. “This should not be easy.” What? Feeling the freedom and liberty? Guess what? It’s not easy. Is that how anyone should win an election by deliberately making it harder to vote and even harder to register to vote?

”Florida's disgraced former GOP chairman says the party had meetings about "keeping blacks from voting" Is that why we have these restrictive polling ID laws that the Teaparty defends so much?  Also, Rick Scott is under investigation for purging voters that happen to be 87% Black.

Just Google “voter suppression 2012” on UTube and you will come up with many, many reports that you won’t see on Fox Noise. Whether its laws that obstruct voting or election fraud Republicans, the freedom and liberty party, continue to do both

Its not showing an ID that is the issue, its the type of restrictive polling ID that is the problem. I happen to agree that only people that have the right to vote should. Furthermore I have no problem with showing an ID of some sort at a polling place. However, the restrictive polls ID laws are not about proving one has the right to vote, if the ID required deliberately keeps people from voting. Republican governors who gained Republican majorities in their State legislatures have enacted laws that insure obstructing, if not prohibiting the right to vote for persons most likely to vote for Democrats.

It does not matter who is in power when an election is stolen. Voter fraud must be crushed in order to have a truly representative government, but so should election fraud and voter suppression, which is equally, if not more heinous. Ask any person from the Teaparty or any Republican and they will vehemently deny that these laws obstruct the right to vote.  Do they care to know?  You think they would want to since they are all about freedom and liberty. Many are unaware because it’s not something you will hear on Fox Noise or on right wing radio or read on right wing websites. Is freedom and liberty important only if Democrats are taking away your liberties?  I don’t care where tyranny comes from and if it’s my party I will fight it even harder. You can't just talk the talk of freedom and liberty. You have to walk the walk.

A party that wants to win an election by taking away the most precious right from the opposition does not deserve to govern and does not have my vote. It's shameful and the Teaparty that I knew, that started under Bush, would never stand for such a thing. I pray every day that it finds it way back and speaks up against election fraud and suppression.

God Bless


PS I am not a writer but I don't have to be to speak out and speak up. I have said it before and will say it again: from forced vaginal ultrasounds, huge government right between a woman’s legs interfering with her private choices  to plan a family including contraception,  to the right to vote and the right to habeas corpus, sharia islamophobes,  birthers, truthers, racists and especially the religious right,  have ruined the Teaparty and any semblance of good fiscal policy, reducing the debt,  small government and personal liberty that it once stood for. The rest of us can't run away from it fast enough.

Before you say oh that liberal media, did it ever occur to you, that this is a strategy to keep you from knowing what you should know? You can't choose to be informed of that which simply feeds your side of any given issue. To be informed, truly informed, you must consume news that does not simply appeal to you. I am a Fox Noise survivor and the Foxification of my brain. Its why I can truly fight for freedom and liberty and see a threat regardless where it comes from. When I hear Republicans and the Teaparty say that voter suppression and election fraud is not a problem simply because Democrats and "liberal media" report it, I am sickened. We are divided and conquered.

To Those that Talk the Tea Party Talk But are Tea Party Con Artists

 I see Teocons. I see them everywhere.

There was a time the Tea Party stood for fiscal responsibility, small government and liberty.

It  started under President Bush, in opposition to the trillion dollar debt and deficits brought about by the wars, the corrupt gift horse to the drug companies known as Medicare Part D and the fiscal recklessness of tax cuts in war time while spending on wars soared. In the space of 6 years the Bush presidency took us from a surplus to trillions in debts and deficits.

The Tea Party grew into numbers that made it a force to be reckoned with after President Obama was elected mainly because of Obamycare, the Republican brainchild of yet more corporate welfare to health insurance companies with a mandate no less, to buy now ever rising price gouging policies in anticipation of those subsidies in 2013. (One wonders who was really in power while Democrats held both houses in Congress when Republicans were able to get Romneycare passed at the Federal level. Mind boggling. Nothing is what it seems in the criminal syndicate run on legalized bribes slash/ brothel that is Congress, in recent history.)

In 2000 as in decades before, we had Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, food stamps and yes, even Planned Parenthood.  What we didn’t have back then were trillion dollar a year wars, the reckless, unpatriotic tax cuts for war profiteers and the uber wealthy in war time and the trillion dollar corrupt gift horses to corporate America, especially the drug companies. Yet corrupt Republican and Democrat politicians alike, will have you believe now, that we got into the fiscal mess we are in by spending on Medicare and Social Security and other social programs.

Wars don’t pay for themselves, especially ones that cost 1 trillion a year. So you borrow (or steal) from Social Security and blame the trillions in debt on social programs in order to fund the wars. We, you and I, pay for our social programs, but a corrupt, treasonous Congress has taken that money. They go to work with one thing in mind: how much of the taxpayer pie can they give to their campaign donors who profit with wars or sell insurance, etc. Regardless, the Tea Party was about the fiscal recklessness of these wars and corrupt laws that take from the taxpayer pie to give to the highest bidders, like pharma.

Something has happened to that Tea Party. It has morphed into something unrecognizable, far from the principles that were at the heart of the movement. It has morphed into an organization co-opted by con artists and imitation conservatives that have infiltrated and called the movement, falsely, their own.

Those that have been part of the original Tea Party movement a little longer than the newer organized “Tea Party” organizations since the election of President Obama, are very troubled that the original Tea Party’s message is being lost due to the integration of other issues, such as abortion and Planned Parenthood which does little to fund abortions. The original Tea Party is worried about the birther crowd that would not even exist if this President’s name was not Hussein and was White and if the religious right did not think he was not a Christian. To listen to the calls for this man’s birth certificate after he has provided it twice makes the Tea Party look like the racist, aluminum, foil hat party. These distractions are completely overshadowing the original message of the Tea Party.

The original Tea Party is worried about corporate and plutocrat agendas becoming the agendas of the Tea Party organizations. They especially worry that the Tea Party is all of a sudden the "Teocon Neocon Party", hijacked and co-opted by corrupt Republican, war oligarchy hawks that got us into this fiscal mess to begin with, like Bachman, Pence, Goehmert, Huckabee, Palin, Army, Rove amongst others and the motor mouths on Fox News and every other oligarchy corporate media outlet that sold us, like pair of Nikes, every war we are in! 

The Tea Party is being blamed for the birthers and the religious, tyrannical right, tax cuts for war profiteers and when that happens the message to end spending on wars and Empires, to end corporate subsidies and to end an oligarchy that is served by corrupt politicians in Congress, is lost.

In addition, the Tea Party has lost the bipartisanship it once enjoyed! Independents and liberals are running the other way from the distorted messages that are not related to the original movement that they are getting now! As an independent, whose vote the Tea Party needs, I am speaking from experience

I must ask self proclaimed Tea Party supporters something. Do you or do you not support the Tea Party movement that started under Bush against these wars and the destructive consequences they have for our solvency and strength as a Nation or are you a Tea Party con artist? Choose!  Are you the party of the religious right that wants huge, invasion of privacy, humongous anti-conservative government that extends right into the doctor's office and the wombs of every woman in the United States? Are you the gay hate party that does not know how to live and let live? Are you the birther party that is being used as a tool to distract the media and the corrupt politicians from the issue of spending on eternal wars? Are you a racist fringe party that hates Obama because he is Black? Are you the scared of Muslims, "Anti -Sharia Law Party"? Are you a divided and conquered partisan ignoramus who attacks fellow Americans that happen not to agree with the right, who vote Democrat, of not loving their country and being Marxist as if you were somehow more patriotic then them? Are you a victim of media motor mouths from Glenn Beck to Ed Schultz whose sole purpose is to divide and conquer so that the American people never unite to take their country back from a plutocratic oligarchy and because of that attack the Occupy Wall Street movement which you are clueless to know, seeks the very things you do and with whom you have so much in common?

Better yet, are you all of a sudden the " Neocon Teocon Party", hijacked and co-opted by Republican war hawks that got us into this fiscal mess? Do you call yourself a conservative but want to bomb Iran? Newsflash! Conservative means less spending, smaller government and freedom. Wars EXPLODE government and spending, destroy our fiscal soundness, explode the debt and in times of war, government strips us of our freedoms. So if you want to vote for a bomb Iran candidate you are a conservative fraud. Most importantly, McCain lost to Obama because of his bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran crap. When Republicans nominate another bomb Iran candidate they will be electing President Obama in 2012.

It amazes me that these Teocons call themselves “patriots” to boot. The Tea Party “Patriots” just endorsed, Newt Gingrich, a bomb Iran candidate who wants the infamous John Bolton to run his State Department! (John Bolton has gone on to endorse Mitt Romney for President which should exclude Romney as a candidate for a true Tea Party voter.) Do these supposed “patriots” even know what the consequences of bombing Iran are and how patriotic is it to want ruin our Nation with trillions of more debt that another war would bring while whining for tax cuts for the uber rich war profiteers? Tea Party “Patriots” are for sale to corporate oligarchs and war profiteers. They are Teocons. War with Iran is coming if we the people don’t stop it in its tracks. A true patriot and Tea Party activist would do everything in their power to stop the ruination of our country with another war.

Choose! Are you or are you not the Tea Party that started with the core concepts of fiscal responsibility and limited government which means an end to these wars that grows government exponentially and ruins us fiscally? What are you? Choose! Because the true Tea Party message is lost amongst all those other religious, anti-Muslim, bomb Iran, anti-contraception, cut Medicare, cut Social Security, etc. imitation tea party, TEOCON messages.

Jeanette Borges is a Floridian, independent, leaning conservative, free thinking, non-partisan who blames the American electorate, especially Republicans who call themselves “conservatives” but are no such thing, for  electing Neocon, HUGE government, huge spending, less freedoms, anti-conservative war candidates for the current state of our Nation. It is mind boggling that they are going to do it again and hand Obama victory in 2012 by choosing another bomb Iran candidate. Please, please a comment and let me know what you think of this article.

Open Letter to Congress: Re: SOPA/PIPA

January 21, 2012

Dear Member of Congress

Although some in Congress state now they oppose SOPA and PIPA, the American people don't believe for a minute that a corrupt Congress will not find a way of selling out to the highest bidders on this or any other issue, so to be clear: SOPA/PIPA would put the burden on website owners to police user-contributed material and call for the unnecessary blocking of entire sites. Small sites won't have sufficient resources to defend themselves. Big media companies may seek to cut off funding sources for their foreign competitors, even if copyright isn't being infringed. Foreign sites will be blacklisted, which means they won't show up in major search engines. SOPA and PIPA would build a framework for future restrictions and suppression.

In a world in which politicians choose to allow corporations with big money to regulate the Internet based on the influence of big money, Wikipedia — and sites like it — cannot survive.

Congress says it's trying to protect the rights of copyright owners, but the "cure" that SOPA and PIPA represent is worse than the disease. SOPA and PIPA are not the answer: they would fatally damage the free and open Internet. Congress says this won’t affect American sites. Well what’s to stop other countries from doing to us what you want to do to them? What’s to stop corporations from manipulating the laws and abuse them, simply to wipe out competitors that provide free services and content? What’s to stop them from using this law to make the Internet another source of milking the masses which is all they ever want even if it means destroying lives, businesses, jobs and our very economy as we have seen them do already?

No one, absolutely no one, anywhere, here or abroad, should start screwing with the Internet. Since government can’t abridge freedom of speech and the press, in an end run around the First Amendment, Congress has consolidated the media and given corporate media in the hands of FIVE people, the power to censor, filter, spin and propagandize our right to know, which is the purpose of a free press. Now Congress proposes to do the same thing with the Internet: give corporations the legal means to censor, filter and decide what information we are to have, what we should know, because the government can’t.

We are sick of living in a plutocratic oligarchy. We are sick of the corruption. Stop selling our Bill of Rights, our health, our military, our income, our environment, our freedoms and our very lives to the highest bidders. Passing legislation simply because lobbyists can buy our corrupt Congress is abhorrent to the constitution and everything we hold dear in a democracy.

With the occupy movement and the Tea Party pulling together on this issue Congress and the oligarchs its serves should think of the consequences of a people united rising up to take back their country from a government so corrupt it revolts the American people.

The Founders designed a government of, by and for the people, not of, by and for the highest bidders. It is cause for a massive uprising at this point.

Most Sincerely
