Democrats Continue Nasty Nazi Comments … SC Democratic Party Compared Gov. Nikki Haley (SC-R) to Adolf Hitler Mistress Eva Braun
What ever happened to that civility that President Barack Obama called for when he traveled to Tucson, AZ following the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords that left six dead and 14 injured? Obama stated, “We can do better”. Really Mr. President, you might want to start by reining in your own party. Talk about leading from behind, President Obama cannot control his own party, is it any wonder he has failed America.
In yet another display of complete ignorance and vile behavior, Democrats have compared another Republican to Nazi’s at the RNC convention in Charlotte, NC. Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, made the comment that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley “She was down in the bunker à la Eva Braun.” Of course Braun was the mistress of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Sick.
“The latest offender is Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, whose outrageous words I will not repeat,” said former Sen. Norm Coleman (Minn.) in a statement released by the Romney campaign. “In recent days, we’ve seen similarly disgraceful statements from a top Kansas Democratic delegate and from the chairman of the California Democratic Party.
“President Obama has called for civility in American politics. If his call is to be taken seriously, it’s time for the President to rein in those of his supporters and allies who are trivializing Nazism while also shamelessly trampling on the most basic rules of American political discourse.”
Harpootlian made the comments in reference to a Republican National Committee rapid-response center in the basement of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.
“She was down in the bunker à la Eva Braun,” he said.
Earlier in the week, California Democrat Party chair John Burton compared the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. GOP Presidential nominee called on Team Obama to tamp it down on the Nazi comments. Ya think? However, don’t hold your breathe Mitt, these folks are just some of the most vile, rotten human beings that will say anything without the slightest bit of compassion or caring.
Mitt Romney’s campaign issued a statement Wednesday demanding Democratic officials “cease and desist from comparing those with whom they disagree to Nazis” after the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party compared Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) to Adolf Hitler mistress Eva Braun.
Jamming Wearing Fool seconds the notion that Dems at this convention are just vile creatures as they state, “Hey, they trample upon their own delegates. Smearing Republicans all day, every day is nothing. Heck, this rockhead Harpootlian even doubled down.” And that is exactly what Harpootlian did. He felt no apology was needed. Just plain sick. But if you boo God, what else would one expect?
Gabrielle Giffords stepping down …
US Representative Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) has announced that she will step down from Congress and focus on recovering from the injuries she suffered at the hands of the assassination attempt by mad man Jared Lee Loughner in the Tucson massacre. Giffords plans on resigning later this week and will not seek reelection in 2012. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer will set the date for special primary and general elections to determine who will serve the remainder of Giffords’ term.
“I have more work to do on my recovery, so to do what is best for Arizona I will step down this week. I’m getting better. Every day my spirit is high. I will return and we will work together for Arizona and this great country. Thank you very much.”
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona announced Sunday she intends to resign from Congress this week to concentrate on recovering from wounds suffered in an assassination attempt a little more than a year ago that shook the country.
“I don’t remember much from that horrible day, but I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice,” the Democratic lawmaker said on a video posted without prior notice on her Facebook page.
Although it is sad to see that Gabby Giffords has to step down, it is the right thing for her and her family. All to often I had heard Democrats and their operatives say that she was making great strides in her recovery, yet when one would see or hear Gabby and you could only say that she was no where back to where she needed to be. The last thing that was needed was for the Democrat party to take advantage of Gabby and use her to have her run for office on the sympathy vote.
White House Makes Excuses for Democrats Calling Tea Party Terrorists … “Inappropriate and the Product of An Emotional Discussion”
White House making excuses for referring to Tea Party as terrorists … hoe about a formal apology?
What say you White House press secretary Jay Carney, does President Barack Obama think that it is appropriate discourse for VP Biden to refer to the Tea Party as terrorists? When faced with the question Carney responded with the lame response,that the use of the word “was a product of an emotional discussion, very passionately held positions in this debate, but that does not mean that it’s appropriate.
One reporter today asked White House press secretary Jay Carney about reports that the Veep had used the term, wondering if “the president thinks that’s appropriate discourse?”
“No, he doesn’t, and neither does the vice president,” Carney said. “And I think the vice president spoke to this and made clear that he didn’t say those words, and I think the congressman in question has said that he regrets using them.”
Carney said the use of the word “was a product of an emotional discussion, very passionately held positions in this debate, but that does not mean that it’s appropriate. And it’s not. The vice president doesn’t think so; the president doesn’t think so. Any kind of comments like that are simply not conducive to the kind of political discourse that we hope to have.”
So it was not appropriate, but understandable because of the emotional discussion. Really? However, what should we expect from one of the most partisan and confrontational Presidents ever. Can you imagine if the roles were reversed and it was the Tea Party that called Biden or Obama a terrorist?
How ridiculous and unacceptable was Biden’s comment? On the very day that Gabby Giffords returned to the House after being shot in the head and nearly killed, the same Gabby Giffords where Barack Obama at the Tuscon Memorial speech said that “WE CAN DO BETTER”. Once again Obama proves he is just words.
President Obama called for a greater civil political discourse in America, if not for ourselves, then for our children and Christina Green, the 9 year old girl who was murdered Saturday at the hands of evil. However, if we are trying to make a world that our children would be proud of, wouldn’t it start by not placing a mountain of debt apon them?
And in Christina…in Christina we see all of our children. So curious, so trusting, so energetic and full of magic.
So deserving of our love.
And so deserving of our good example. If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should, let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost. Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away with the next news cycle.
New Pics of Gabrielle Giffords Released … Gabby Has Long Way Still to Go in Rehab from Tuscon Massacre Gun Shot Wound to Ever Consider Politics
New pictures have been released of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) by her office on her Facebook page. These are the first since the terrible Tuscan massacre shooting that left six dead and Giffords wounded with a gun shot to her head. Gabby has come a long way in he rehabilitation from her near fatal injury, but obviously has still a long way to still go. We wish her all the best in her recovery and well wishes. (VIDEO)
The photos show the congresswoman outside. She smiled directly into the camera in one, while she sat next to a woman in the other while smiling downward.
Giffords has been in a Houston rehab facility since two weeks after the Jan. 8 shooting. Six people were killed and 13 were injured, including Giffords.
Carusone said Friday that Giffords could be released sometime this month.
US rep Gabby Giffords obviously has a long road ahead of her in her. returning to Congress should be the least of her worries right now for herself and the Democrat political operatives who look to exploit Giffords for political purposes. Gabby’s well being and recovery is best served for her husband, children and family … politics is always there in the future if she wants. However, enough of the politics at this time.
One has to wonder about statements like that of Debbie Wasserman Schulltz in ‘Meet the Press” this Sunday, when she said “that she had a ‘wonderful conversation’ on the telephone with Giffords on Wednesday and Giffords spoke in full sentences and initiated some of conversation instead of just responding, as she had done in the recent past”. This seems to be in direct contradiction with that reported last week in the Arizona Republic where a Giffords staffer said,that Giffords is having difficulty communicating and is using facial expressions as a way to express and pointing.
US District Court Judge Larry A. Burns Ruled Jared Lee Loughner Mentally Incompetent to Stand Trial in Tuscan Massacre (Death of 6 Wounding 12 including Gabby Giffords)
Jared Lee Loughner, the man responsible for the Tuscan massacre has been found to incompetent to stand trial by District Court Judge Larry A. Burns. In other words, this guy is out of his mind and has major mental illness that leaves him so delusional and psychotic. One has to wonder how Jared Lee Laughner was walking the streets prior to the mass murder shooting that left six dead and US Rep. Gabby Giffords critically wounded from gun shot to the head.
Jared Lee Loughner’s “major mental illness” leaves him so delusional and psychotic that he is incompetent to stand trial, a federal judge ruled today.
U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns viewed hours of videotape of Loughner, he said, and agreed with the conclusion of the psychiatrist and psychologist who evaluated him: Loughner can’t understand the court proceedings or help his lawyers.
“The defendant was generally unable to provide rational and coherent thoughts,” Burns said.
Tucson Gunman Jared Lee Loughner Indicted on 49 Charges in Tuscon Massacre Shooting & Assassination Attempt
Jared Lee Loughner, the man accused in the Tuscon, Arizona shooting massacre has been indicted on 49 counts including murder and attempted murder that left six people dead and critically wounded Arizona US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Among the indictments is the assassination attempt of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords that carries a potential death sentence.
The full Federal indictment can be read HERE.
A grand jury had indicted Loughner, 22, on three counts of attempted murder, including one alleging that he tried to kill Giffords with a Glock semiautomatic handgun during an event for constituents at a Tucson grocery store in January.
The new indictment, returned by a federal grand jury Thursday, includes those three charges and adds murder charges connected to the deaths of John M. Roll, a federal district judge, and Gabriel M. Zimmerman, a staff member for Giffords. He also faces charges in the deaths of Dorothy J. Morris, Phyllis C. Schneck, Dorwan C. Stoddard, and a child, referred to in the indictment as C-T G.
Forty-sex new indictments were added to the existing three counts of attempted murder against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) and two aides as U.S Attorney Dennis K. Burke stated that Loughner violated the civil right of all attending the Giffords’ event. Burke stated, “These victims were exercising one of the most precious and fundamental rights of American citizens: the right to meet freely, openly and peaceably with their member of Congress.”
But, employing a novel legal argument, prosecutors persuaded a federal grand jury to indict him on 46 new charges, on the theory that the shootings occurred on protected federal ground, as if it happened in Congress. Six people, including a chief federal district judge, were killed, and 13 – including Giffords – were injured.
Prosecutors have yet to say whether they will seek the death penalty; however, the option is certainly available.
As speculated last week when US Senator John Kyl (R-AZ) announced that he would retire at the end of his present term and would not seek reelection in 2012, 5 terms US Representative Jeff Flake (R-AZ 06) will announce tomorrow that he will run for the open Senate seat. This is welcome news for Conservatives. This will be an interesting race for 2012 as the mood of the country is that to be fiscally conservative. As fate would have it, that is exactly what Flake is.
Flake’s decision to run for the Senate is sure to rev up Republican competition for his GOP-heavy congressional district. He’s also expected to have plenty of competition in the Senate primary.
As reported atMyFox Phoenix, other names mentioned to possibly run for the open seat include Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth and former state attorney general Grant Woods.
Democrats Look to Gabrielle Giffords for Arizona US Senate Seat … Isn’t it a Bit too Soon for This & Exploitive?
IS THE EXPOITATION OF A HORENDOUS EVENT CONTINUING …
As Arizona US Senator John Kyl has announced that he will not run in 2012 and will retire at the end of his present term, all Democrat eyes are onUS Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) to possible run for the seat. Yes, the same Gabby Giffords who is recovering from an assassination attempt after being shot in the head in the Tuscon massacre. However, is this really what DDemocrats should be focused on, or her health and recovery? Following the Tuscon mass shooting, many looked to capitalize on the heinous event making accusations and putting blame where there was none. The question remains, is the assasination attempt still being exploited?
The race for Arizona’s open Senate seat has quickly focused in on one question: What will Gabrielle Giffords do?
The Democratic congresswoman, who survived an assassination attempt in Tucson last month, is still undergoing rehabilitation in Houston for a gunshot wound to the head. Physicians have warned that her recovery will proceed at its own pace.
But even though questions about her health remain, Giffords’s astonishingly rapid recovery has left Democrats in Arizona and Washington looking to her as a potential candidate to replace retiring GOP Sen. Jon Kyl.
Obviously, Gabrielle Giffords was an up and comer in the Democrat party and has a future for furthering her political career. However, the bullets of an evil man, Jared Loughner, have certainly put any immediate political career plans on hold. However, that did not stop the powers that be in the Democrat hierarchy to put her name out there as a potential candidate for the retiring Kyl’s seat, as reported at the Politico.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik Faces Recall Bid Due to Bias Politcizing the Tucson, AZ Shooting
Do actions really have consequences in Tucson, AZ?
Will there be ramifications for Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s outspoken and inappropriate comments follwoing the Tucson, AZ shooting? Following the mass shooting that left 6 dead and 13 wounded including US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D), Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik was quick to blame heated political rhetoric,prejudice & bigoty, and talk radio for the shooting.
The only problem was that there was no evidence pointing in that direction. Instead, Dupnik went on TV interview after TV interview providing only opinion. Hardly what is expected from a law enforcement officer.
Because of his actions, a group has begaun efforts to recall the sheriff in a special election. Although Dupnik is in a heavily Democrat district, all people really need to take a look at what the sheriff did and ask themselves whether they deem this appropriate of LE. Should a sheriff politicize a crime, instead of providing the facts of the case?
Miracle: 8 in 10 Americans Say Prayer Helped Save Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) … Gabby Leaves Hospital & Transferred to Rehab
According to a recent FOX poll, 8 in 10 Americans believe that prayer helped US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) survive following the Tucson shooting that left 6 dead and 13 injured. Not only was her survival a miracle, but Gabby Giffords left the Tucson area hospital yesterday and was transported to a rehab center in Houston, Texas. Who could have ever believed that following the initial reports of Giffords’ shot in the head at point blank range, in critical condition, that in such a short period of time she would have been responsive and out of the hospital?
Less than two weeks after being shot in the head, she is now out of the hospital and off to rehab, that is a miracle.Keep saying your prayers for Gabby … they do make a difference.
Nearly 8 in 10 American voters say they believe prayers helped Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords survive the Tucson shooting, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.
The congresswoman and 18 others were shot on Jan. 8 at a town-hall meeting in Tucson. Her neurosurgeon has called her recovery “miraculous.” Giffords is expected to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility as early as Friday to continue recovering from brain injuries she suffered after being shot in the head.
Seventy-seven percent of voters believe prayers helped save Giffords, while 17 percent don’t believe that. The remaining 6 percent are unsure.
Those most likely to believe prayer saved Giffords include white Born-Again Christians (95 percent), those who regularly attend religious services (91 percent), blacks (91 percent), Republicans (84 percent), Southerners (83 percent) and women (81 percent).
Of course such stories of prayer must just drive certain folks over the edge. Gee, I wonder who those 17% consist of? As Weasel Zippers states, file this one under stories that make the LEFT wince.
