Demonized                 Thought Crime

Rand Paul Kristol: “fear-mongering kookiness” in drone filibuster
Detroit first major US city brought down by welfare queens and union bosses; an “incorrigible, deadbeat” government
Eric Holder Race-baiting demagogue masquerading as a “pseudo constitutionalist”
Big banks the ultimate recipients of crony capitalism
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) stalking horse for feminazis
Paul Krugman Consistently arguing for deficits & stimulus bills, not austerity
 Gina McCarthy (EPA nominee) WSJ: Over the last four years running the EPA’s air office, Ms. McCarthy has been a notably willful regulator, even for this Administration. Her promotion is another way of saying that Mr. Obama has given up getting Congress to agree to his anticarbon agenda, especially given the number of Senate Democrats from coal or oil states. The real climate fight now is over the shape of forthcoming rules that could be released as early as this summer, and a brutal under-the-table lobbying campaign is now underway.….Ms. McCarthy has been integral in abusing laws that were written decades ago in order to achieve climate goals that Congress has rejected, all with little or no political debate. Someone should ask her about her antidemocratic politics at her confirmation hearings.
