There's been a thread going 'round here on Free Republic and elsewhere all over the Internet called "Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future"
The moderators have pulled it because it's Alex Jones material but so many have commented on it and I was putting together a little visual display as to why it's wrong. Basically, the story is that the US Army is war-gaming a scenario where the TEA party revolts and takes over the town of Darlington, South Carolina. The (racist) TEA Partiers do all kinds of aggressive things like roadblocks on I-95 taking poeples money (as a "toll"), dragging them off to camps, etc. The Republican governor doesn't want to publically cvall in the feds for help because, well, you know, those crazy rabid conservatives who elected him would pitch a fit, so he secretly has to ask the Presdient for help. The federal goverment comes in with the Army and kills/arrests all the TEA partiers and then everything is fine again.
The problem with the whole story is it isn't true; the Army isn't war gaming this scenario because even they know it would never happen. The TEA paty is NOT a militia movement!!!
Anyone who thinks the TEA party is made up of white angry young men bent on armed mayhem is out of their LIBERAL minds. The Darlington scenario is just a Hollywood script that won't happen. It's not what the TEA party is about. Here are just a few ACCURATE photos of REAL TEA Partiers:
So are Grandpa and Grandma really going to take over Darlington? Do you think the Army is prepping for this? LOL!
Not likely. Much more likely the the OWS will riot and kill, burn down, and destroy. The whole thing is LIBERAL propaganda mneant to scare us.
Finally, I leave you with one further truth. Look at this, as to who was peaceful and who was not:
Wallace accuses Cruz of being pretty Conservative like it disqualifies him as serious. Now hammering on more gridlock like it is a bad thing.
So how many times did Axelrod silently burp? (drives me nuts.)
ABC, gives a roundup of peoples’ comments about Chick filet. Now the round table. This should be interesting. Van Jones and Ann Coulter join the others.
Will on Jobs report - if we increase job growth by 50K each month - it will take us 10 years to get people off unemployment.
Wallace speculates to Cruz: You have Conservatives and Liberals so that equals gridlock. How do you solve the BIG problems?
[Most of those BIG problems are caused BY Washington, and they have no intention of solving them. If they did solve them, they would be out of business. Washington CREATES problems so they can throw money at them and appear to be trying to solve them. It is the Washington version of the ole shell game and the politicals, not the American public, win.]
I have not heard any of these comments here in Denver. What I’m hearing is Cruz falls in with our Jindal-Rubio-Ryan wing of the party.
I’m looking forward to see him and how he does with the MSM on a Sunday morning. Hopefully, he will do great.
Cruz gives such a fabulous interview, ie explains conservative values so well, he will never be invited on any other channel. He will be invisible to them.
Do they actually get viewers by recycling the same mouthpieces week after week? Haven’t watched these shows in years.
I think I stopped out of concern about being blinded by the glare off of Begala’s forehead.
I like this guy.
Wallace asks Ted Cruz where is the TEAparty.
He said he remembers the thousands at protests when they were new. Now they have gone to work.
Compromise: Like Reagan, If they offer you half a loaf....take it. I’ll work with Martians.
He thinks the TEAparty is going to back Romney even though he isn’t running a grassroots campaign.
Should Romney pick a TEAparty favorite as VP?
Wallace asks Cruz about Hispanic vote. Cruz says Hispanics are fundamentally conservative. “When is the last time you ever saw a Hispanic panhandler?”
He memorized the US Constitution as a teenager.
Cruz is very articulate and unabashed. Love it!
Actually, I will be listening to every word, phrase and complaint the bent axel makes. Gotta know what he is up to next.Countering his lies are crucial to our win.
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): David Axelrod, adviser to Obama’s campaign
Axelrod wants to see tape of himself supporting recovery summer 2010(Wallace asked about Stimulus bill and unemployment still over 8%)
Axelrod talks about “payroll tax cuts” as something significant(you still have the same income tax bill at the end of the year-Wallace should have clarified that)
Axelrod says in 2010(Wallace played video) Obama never argued tax cuts for the wealthy is stimulative, it was just part of the agreement with Congress
Axelrod argues middle class needs money in their pocket
Axelrod hasn’t seen the study from Earnst and Young that says the Obama Economic plan lowers GDP and raises unemployment, but he has seen the Moody’s Report on Romney’s plan and agrees with it
Axelrod is asked about Reid’s attack on getting to see Romney’s tax returns, he agrees with Bill Crystal that Romney should show them.
Axelrod on the lawsuit on the Military vote, says the rest of Ohio should have same right to an early vote weekend, accuses Republicans of just wanting to shrink pool of voters
Thanks RG, glad you liked it.
The Jobs Report shows more jobs than expected for July, and now Democrats want to portray that as an economic trend after 4 years of lying about an improving economy.
Van Jones on the “jobs report” - good news there is no sign of a double dip (recession?)....and Romney didn’t create jobs as governor in MA. lol, just Brilliant.
Jonathan Karl calls Reid’s comments on the Senate floor - Outrageous. Dem’s response is just “why won’t he release his tax records?” (iow, implying what’s he hiding?)
Coulter calls them - they’ve got “nothing” on Romney. If he releases 10 years, they’ll demand 20. Reminds everyone of other presidents’ refusal to release records.
Van Jones talks about how people are underwater on the mortgages (vs. Reid’s comments). (where did this segway come from? lol, George let him take it; now everyone’s answering this one. He’s not getting much love on his premise that mortgage holders need more help)
The one thing I keep hearing that our side does not blow out of the water is this claim that “we tried it their way and it didn’t work” followed by “our ideas worked, just look at Clinton”.
These politicians on our side better get their responses together because I’m expecting to hear this over and over. 0zero is already using that in every stump speech I’ve seen on him by the media.
Wallace asked Ed Rollins, if he were running Romney’s campaign, how he would have responded to Harry Reid regarding his accusation that Romney release his tax returns.
Rollins said, he would release 5 or so years of returns.
Then he said he would ask Reid how he managed to become a multi-millionairre while in Congress and the answer is probably GAMBLING AND PROSTITUTION.
Got a huge laugh from the panel.
Looking forward to seeing Cruz on FOX. I hadn’t followed his race.
ABC obama vs. Romney’s Tax plan
Van Jones - Romney’s going to raise your taxes while cutting his. We will lose 4 million jobs with Romney’s plan.....????? this guy is nuts.
On Veepstakes for Romney - Jonathon Karl is putting his money on “big and bold” vs safe choice. George Will agrees. (I’m breathlessly waiting on Van Jones thoughts.)
Rittner? says Paul Ryan. Coulter - says Romney doesn’t need to galvanize base, obamacare has done that. He needs to pick someone clean. Van Jones - I missed it....some woman.
No Axehead, Repubs wants to shrink the pool of tax fraud. We understand your tactics.
Anyone that has the ability to make terrorists out of grandma and grandpa and then get the dbm to print it must be watched. Simply to find out what he will be up to next so we can counter it.
These guys have nada to run on. Therefore they have to makeup lies about us,its all they have. Look at zeros history. Its how he won every other election he ever had,destroy the enemy with anything available.He has never had anything to run on since he has never ever done anything. their biggest fable has been the Tea Party and how they are racist, bigoted gun owners, etc., etc. When everyone knows they are our parents and grandparents and very patriotic.
Currently, they are in the process of spinning about Romney. Ever hear Romney has not paid taxes in ten years(dingy harry had a voice in his ear) same old turfing,has axel written all over it.
Wallace just showed ballerina Emmanuel talking about how Chik Fil-A doesn’t reflect Chicago values!
Like murder, gangland activity, dirty politics, miles and miles of “projects”.
