Fascist New Hampshire GOP Chairman tells conservatives to drown Democrats

New Hampshire GOP Chairman Jennifer Horn

MANCHESTER – A few hours after Hillary Clinton energized Democrats ahead of Tuesday’s election, about 400 Republicans cheered on the top of their ticket, linking all of their opponents to President Obama.

There were no out of state, national Republicans on hand but that seemed not to matter to the group at Wiggins Airways at the Manchester Airport, who greeted Scott Brown, Walt Havenstein, Frank Guinta and Marilinda Garcia as they arrived on the NHGOP “Victory Bus,” which pulled directly into the huge hangar.

The featured speakers were familiar – of the same name.

Former Gov. John H. Sununu said Democrats should be “embarrassed of their President who has failed America, who has screwed America, and we have to make a change.

“Think of how disgraceful it is to have a disgrace in the White House,” Sununu said.

Yeah, after Bush allowed us to be attacked in 2001, let Osama Bin Laden get away when he was cornered, invaded Afghanistan and fought that war with unprecedented ineptitude, lied us into war in Iraq, fought that war with equal ineptitude, wasted four trillion dollars on the two wars, nearly totally destroyed our economy, tripled the national debt, and created the largest deficit in U.S. history… and those are just the biggies, but Obama is a disgrace because one person has died from Ebola.

New Hampshire GOP Chairman Jennifer Horn had tough words.

Insisting “this is our moment,” Horn said, “A wave just doesn’t happen. Waves happen when every single member of a cause or a movement come together.
“This is our time, we need to crush it and push their heads under over and over and over again until they cannot breathe anymore,” said Horn.

Bill Maher nails what’s wrong with Democratic candidates and why I won’t donate to their cause

by Ben Hoffman

Democrats are spineless. They’re running from their accomplishments and allowing them to be redefined by Fox “news,” other right-wing pundits, and Republicans. I vote for them because their policies are better for America (something conservatives never consider), but I’ll be damned if I donate to their campaigns. Some of their commercials make me want to vote for Republicans, but I don’t because I vote policy — not personality.

The dregs of society serve when it’s an all volunteer military

How could this possibly be offensive?

How could this possibly be offensive?

A U.S. Army soldier thought depicting the lynching of a black family would be funny. That’s the family values of religious conservatives today — brainwashed by right-wing media and rotten to the core. You can bet the family shows up in church Sunday morning with a “holier-than-thou” attitude.

They’ve been forced to take down the Halloween display.

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. – Officials have confirmed that an offensive Halloween display at a Fort Campbell residence has been removed.

A ClarksvilleNow.com reader sent a photo of the display, which shows what appears to be a black family hanging from a tree in a yard on Litwin St.

The child in the display has a knife in its back and one of the figures holds a sign that is not legible in the photo.

Fort Campbell Public Affairs said they are aware of the display and have since had it taken down from the yard.

Brendalyn Carpenter with Public Affairs said they received a report of a Halloween decoration that was “offensive in nature” and contacted authorities to investigate. The occupant was informed of the concerns made by the community and removed the display.

Carpenter said it was her understanding that the display was not intended to be offensive, but authorities deemed it could be interpreted as such. She said the occupant did extend an apology about the decorations.

“Displays of an offensive nature are not reflective of Army values and the family-friendly environment provided for employees and residents of the Fort Campbell community,” Carpenter said.

Latino votes matter in this election if we’re going to defeat the Nazis

Udall vs. Gardner

Udall vs. Nazi Gardner

In the basement of a northwest Denver office building, blue “Latinos con Udall” signs adorned the wall behind Arturo Rodriguez as he pressed the need for immigration reform and appealed to the crowd in the small room.

“Those of us who are Latinos, we know we’re family-oriented,” said Rodriquez, the national president of the United Farmworkers of America, as he stood next to Sen. Mark Udall. “So we’ve got to be cien por ciento — we’ve got to be 100 percent — in ensuring that all of our family votes.”

For Udall, that Latino turnout could make all the difference in a tight race against Republican challenger, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner. Also at stake, potentially, is Democrats’ control of the U.S. Senate.

Nixon prolonged Vietnam War and committed treason for political gain

Vietnam war

Nixon murdered thousands of Americans for political gain

Newly released secret tapes prove Nixon committed treason for political gain.

In October 1968, there was a breakthrough in the Paris peace talks that would end the Vietnam war. At the same time, Nixon’s campaign was relying heavily on the war continuing. If a deal was reached, Johnson would halt the bombing of North Vietnam. But Nixon had Chennault convince South Vietnam that they “should withdraw from the talks, refuse to deal with Johnson, and if Nixon was elected, they would get a much better deal,” Taylor writes. They did on the day before Johnson was going to announce the end of the Vietnam war.
