Fiorina's Winning Campaign Debate Performance Included An Utter Lie! (Ring of Fire Radio)

Everyone knows politicians lie. They lie exponentially as they campaign for office, especially during televised debates. Debate strategy is not to put forth positions that ping the opponent (all sixteen). The key to winning the GOP debate is to garner aghast and applause for oratory. An easy task if the audience is comprised of conservatives (with ample financial wherewithal). It also doesn't seem to matter if said oratory has any basis in fact. Factually, the first two GOP debates have been so laced with WWE like entertainment (and utter international machismo from Rubio) seeking a singular truism would be fruitless. As fruitless as panning for gold in the Florida Everglades.

Other than Donald Trump's maniacal railings in the first debate, and Ben Carson's nuttiness in the second debate, Carly Fiorina garnered the most aghast and applause after insisting on inserting an utter prep-planned lie.

Fiorina KNEW the Video was a Miscarriage, not an Abortion: Lied in Front of 23 Million Viewers

By now, half of the people in the country have either seen or heard about the infamous video clip, depicting a live fetus, approximately 18 weeks old, laying and struggling on a stainless steel table after allegedly having been aborted. The video was released by anti-abortion activist Gregg Cunningham. However, when interviewed by Time magazine, Cunningham refused to identify when or where the video was made or who filmed the scene. Claiming that his organization, the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, enters into “confidentiality agreements” in order to acquire the videos. 
During the second GOP debate a few weeks ago, Fiorina said, “I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes…watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.” Significantly, Cunningham would neither “confirm nor deny” whether or not the video was filmed at a Planned Parenthood clinic. He nonetheless stated that he was “confident” that the procedure shown was an abortion. 
It turns out that it was nothing of the kind. A few hours following the video’s publication online, medical experts pointed out that it is virtually impossible to resuscitate a baby younger than 23 weeks. One doctor pointed out that “the chance of survival below [23 weeks] is simply so remote that application of aggressive neonatal resuscitation and intensive care would be not only futile, but cruel.” 
What happened is that one of Cunningham’s fellow activists, David Daleiden, had taken the raw footage, then used a voice-over from an entirely different procedure in which fetal tissue was being harvested for medical research. That voice-over had nothing to do with the events in the video clip, which by now, is known to be of a miscarriage – not an abortion. 
Caught with his pants down, Daleiden admitted that it was a miscarriage – but told CNN that it “didn’t matter” – as long as it proves his point. Egregiously, Daleiden did not have the distraught mother’s permission to film the event or use it. “We used it to illustrate exactly the kind of late-second trimester baby…fetus that we’re talking about in these cases of organ harvesting.” 
In other words, Daleiden, Cunningham and the rest are perfectly willing to present blatant fabrications in order to advance their agenda. Furthermore, Fiorina knew that the video was misleading and depicted a miscarriage rather than an abortion. Nonetheless, she was also willing to spout lies and distortions in order to pander to the base she believes will support her. 
It is typical of the right-wing religious nut jobs who don’t give a tinker’s damn about the child once he or she is born. When they are caught in a lie and attempt to cover up the truth, they simply respond that it’s not relevant. It’s not the only example of this kind of behavior. Recently, GOP Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah was called out by Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards in front of the House Oversight Committee when he brought out a chart supposedly demonstrating that the number of abortions performed at PPH clinics was on the rise. He claimed the chart was taken from PPH’s own annual reports. It was actually from another anti-choice group, Americans United for Life – and the chart was completely misleading. 
Fiorina and the rest of the sex-obsessed theocrats can rant all they like. The bottom line is, revelations about this infamous video is further destroying the right-wing’s credibility. They’re even alienating their pro-life supporters.

Scott Walker, Ring of Fire Radio And The Under-educated, GOP 2016

Posted with permission from Ring of Fire Radio

Walker’s Woefully Weak Education Shows at Every Turn; Geography, History, Etc.

As the election cycle gains traction, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) lack of education is becoming more obvious. He displayed it during the Thursday night debate through his lack of foreign policy knowledge, and even geography.

Juan Cole of Informed Comment noted an exchange between Walker and Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly. She asked Walker about American foreign policy, and he struggled to recite a good answer. He even struggled forming a complete sentence.
KELLY: Governor Walker, in February you said that we needed to gain partners in the Arab world. Which Arab country not already in the U.S. led coalition has potential to be our greatest partner?
WALKER: What about then (ph), we need to focus on the ones we have. You look at Egypt, probably the best relationship we’ve had in Israel, at least in my lifetime, incredibly important.
You look at the Saudis — in fact, earlier this year, I met with Saudi leaders, and leaders from the United Arab Emirates, and I asked them what’s the greatest challenge in the world today? Set aside the Iran deal. They said it’s the disengagement of America. We are leading from behind under the Obama-Clinton doctrine — America’s a great country. We need to stand up and start leading again, and we need to have allies, not just in Israel, but throughout the Persian Gulf.
Anyone watching the debate had to have noticed Walker’s weak, flailing response. He mixed up countries and failed to acknowledge the countries that America has a relationship with. His muddled response and incoherent rambling is reminiscent of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who gets crazier by the day.

It’s safe to say that Walker is one Republican who will not get the GOP nod next year.

Childlike (Make Believe) Soldiers And Jade Helm 15

Posted with permission from Ring of Fire Radio

Jade Helmers

Childlike Make Believe Soldiers Caught with Huge Weapons Stash to Fight Back Jade Helm

In Gaston County, North Carolina, three men have been arrested for gathering a large arsenal and constructing explosives in response to a feared government invasion known as Jade Helm, reports the Asheville Citizen Times.
The three men: Walter Eugene Litteral, 50, Christopher James Barker, 41, and Christopher Todd Campbell, 30, were arrested after the FBI had investigated them for over a month. The FBI’s investigation began when it learned that the men were attempting to make homemade bombs, which Litteral reportedly referred to as “game changers.”
According to the criminal complaint, Litteral planned to make explosives out of tennis balls covered in nails and coffee cans filled with ball bearings.
Litteral also purchased Kevlar helmets, body armor, face masks and hand-held radios in preparation for what the group feared would soon be a military invasion. Litteral also allegedly planned to purchase an assault rifle and ammunition for Barker. Barker cannot purchase a firearm or ammunition for himself due to his prior convictions for cocaine and stolen goods.
The men are due for detention hearings Thursday. They face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 fine. Campbell has also been charged with a separate firearm charge that carries a maximum punishment of 10 years and a $10,000 fine.

The GOP Ignominious: GOP Fear Politics And Hillary As KKK

As we watch the various manifestations of conservatives making wild and insane analogies against the world's most heinous figures, despicable people and in- humane organizations, how can anyone avoid thoughts of such comment as "lock-step" strategy and campaign tactics.

After Ted Cruz spoke as such:

“If this deal goes through, without exaggeration, the Obama administration will become the world’s leading state sponsor and financier of radical Islamic terrorism.”

After Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke as such:

Cotton said that Kerry, who is appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday to sell lawmakers on the agreement, “acted like Pontius Pilate” by not drawing a line.
After Huckabee spoke as such:

MSNBC, Ed Schultz (first 2:08 minutes only

And this..... 
This GOP'er just out-Huckabee'd Mike Huckabee.
Posted by Mediaite on Friday, July 31, 2015
It appears The ED Show video captured a twofer. Huckabee and Trump.

The latest example of politics by fear North Carolina Republican Party Chair. North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Hasan Harnett, African American, has twice compared Hillary Clinton to the Ku Klux Klan via Twitter.

Ring Of Fire Radio (Linked)

We will not address the inherent disgust in a black conservatives use of the Ku Klux Klan as an analogous strategy. GOP minstrels are well documented in their love for a party that is by policy anti-civil rights, anti-LGBT rights, and anti-women's' rights (unmarried of child bearing age), and anti-veteran, . We also will not bother with the clear Twitter verbiage related to "God." Our point of criticism relates to a political party that is so beaten down by successes in the Obama Administration, they resort 'fear' and abhorrent imagery' politics.

After being caught with their pants around their ankles when public contempt flows, they create imaginary support from phantom supporters. Trump: "Hispanics love me." Huckabee: "Many Jews positive remarks about ovens analogy."  

The "black-conservative" state party chair whitewashes (word choice intentional) dismisses is abhorrent remarks as such via a spokesperson. Notice the black conservative reticence in being referred to as African-American. 
“The chairman isn’t going to comment or give interviews on tweets, but as the first black chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, he believes we have to learn from history and move past it,” he said.
Minstrelism is ugly. It takes on a fare greater horror when the minstrel uses  horrific chapter of African-American History as strategy and to receive "back-slapping" praise from white conservatives.

Fox News "Circles the wagons" on to protect Donald Trumps racist remarks. To be expected!

At this point, it's obvious that Trump is bad for business. But only one network is bending over to make excuses for him.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Rand Paul Attacks Disability Payments

America be careful media is again failing you.
This is a dangerous man.

Rand Paul has staked-out yet another "Twilight Zone" narrative and political ploy via a recent speech to a group of New Hampshire state legislative leaders.

The following 33 second video embed is of poor sound quality, but Paul's ploy is as clears as his toupee is visible. Attack disability payments and recipients when no other ploy is available.

A few remarks about Paul's latest subterfuge. Let's start with a question. When will someone who fathoms themselves a true journalist vs a new entertainer (like Chris Matthews who seems a Paul sycophant) ask Paul for data and proof to validate his claim? It is easy to simply hoist oneself on a stage and make unsubstantiated assertions. He should be challenged regarding his continuing manipulation for purpose of winning the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. 

Paul made the remarks in a manner similar to Mitt Romney's secretive diminution of 47% Americans as "takers" who would never vote for him nor the GOP. While speaking before a group of committed listeners, his remarks were video taped (seemingly with his full knowledge). The remarks were clearly the result of strategy for personal political gain.

Ring Of Fire Radio: Paul sounding like Michelle Bachmann.
“The thing is, in all of these programs, there’s always somebody who’s deserving. But everybody in this room knows somebody who is gaming the system,” said Paul. “What I tell people is, if you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn’t be getting your disability check. Over half the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts. Join the club!”
 After the video surfaced, Paul's office performed its common practice of sweeping the inimitable senator's trail of tracks that can lead to discovery of the fallacy and ludicrousness of his any claim.  "He was taken out of context!"  Of course, he was taken out of context.

His handlers took the post video "cleansing" to a more sophisticated level than the zany senator. 
“We absolutely should take care of those truly in need of help,” Paul’s office told The Huffington Post. “But the system is broken, and when people can game the system, they are stealing from those who are truly disabled and won’t receive the care and aid they need.”
Paul's strategy is as flawed and disingenuous as GOP claims of voter fraud. Think Progress reports fraud in disability payments is at the 1% level and far less than 8% cases of fraud in Medicare and Medicaid. 

If you recall and Paul has major issues with honesty, veracity and serial lying. We can deposit Paul's frequent cases of plagiarism into the bank as fact and indicative of his character. Let's instead deal with his admitted affinity for misinformation for personal gain. Do you recall past Paul's comments to a group of University of Louisville Medial Students. When asked for advice to the group on the eve of exam day, Paul showed his true colors. The speaker did not address the future physicians with professional advice that would one day align with the Hippocratic Oath, he reached into his psyche and guess what surfaced.

Rand Paul was talking with University of Louisville medical students when one of them tossed him a softball. "The majority of med students here today have a comprehensive exam tomorrow. I'm just wondering if you have any last-minute advice."(Steve Brodner) 
"Actually, I do," said the ophthalmologist-turned-senator, who stays sharp (and keeps his license) by doing pro bono eye surgeries during congressional breaks. "I never, ever cheated. I don't condone cheating. But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important." 
He went on to describe studying for a pathology test with friends in the library. "We spread the rumor that we knew what was on the test and it was definitely going to be all about the liver," he said. "We tried to trick all of our competing students into over-studying for the liver" and not studying much else. 
"So, that's my advice," he concluded. "Misinformation works."
The specific video except here.

Since I published a piece regarding Paul's latest ploy earlier in the week, I find little need to delve more into Paul's ploy. We should hope one true news manager, news producer or show host will book the chameleon Paul and asks for raw data regarding his claim.

Maybe Paul's new found admirer from MSNBC, Chris Matthews, should ask Paul about his claims. He will not sit for  an interview with other MSNBC hosts who might exercise a true bit of journalism and Fox News will only provide misleading graphics. 

CNN? No comment!

Requiem For A Squeamish Democrat Party

Voters cast their ballots at a polling station in Alhambra, Calif. on November 4, 2014.
Lowest voter turnout in nine years. Is here any wonder the GOP won?  The older folk with vote and they will not generally vote Democrat.

2014....A Democrat mess and voters who turned away from squeamish politicians. Problem...they turned to the dark side.

We should add media contributed greatly to the "Red Mess" pictured below.  Let's see if media holds itself culpable when the next two years froths with partisan fights and ineffective government.  But, of course, media sells tickets when the two sides pull and tug in opposite directions. A news executive's dream. Wonder if that very dynamic provide impetus for CNN's over-the-top snuggle with GOP politicians during the lead-up to November 4th? 

Ring of Fire Radio offers a video (via You Tube) that all progressives much watch.

A Party, A Political Ideology And A Variation Of Sedition

Of course, you know 1/20/2009 was Barack Obama's Inauguration Ball night.  And,  these subversives plotted!

And, obstruction is what we got over the six plus years of Obama's Presidency. These people literally plotted sedition (via obstruction against the good of the nation) and they "delivered" (for their oligarch supporters) as thoroughly as they provide protective interference for the nation's uber wealthy.
