The Left approve of stealing your bank savings

Five days ago, on March 16, 2013, the people of Cyprus were told by the grand poobahs of the Eurozone that as much as 10% of the deposits in their personal bank accounts would be “levied”, in exchange for a $13 billion (€10 billion) bail-out of their heavily indebted country to avoid bankruptcy and a banking collapse.
Cyprus is a small island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to the east of Greece, and a member of the European Union (EU). The Eurozone is an economic and monetary union of 17 EU member states that have adopted the euro (€) as their common currency and sole legal tender.
The Eurozone’s levy was contingent on the approval of the Cypriot parliament, but parliament resoundingly rejected the levy. Meanwhile, to prevent a bank run, banks in Cypriot will remain closed “until next week”, euphemistically called a “bank holiday”.
If you need the grave import of what happened clearly spelled out, here it is:

  1. Money in our personal bank accounts is PRIVATE PROPERTY.
  2. The proposed levy, therefore, is THEFT/ROBBERY.
  3. This is not just another “tax.” This bank levy is particularly pernicious because what is proposed is the seizure of privately-owned bank deposits that had been guaranteed by the government, much like the FDIC bank deposits in the United States. What value does such a guarantee have if it can be withdrawn at will without any advance notice?
  4. A “bank holiday” means you can’t gain access to YOUR OWN MONEY.
  5. Although Cypriot’s parliament rejected the levy, the damage is already done. The Rubicon has been crossed: the idea of “wealth taxation,” that is the involuntary confiscation of privately-owned property, has now been breached. Sure enough, faster than you can say “Jiminy Cricket,” the governments of two other countries — New Zealand and Spain — already are making similar levy noises.

In case you’re doubtful about what the Left here in America think of this theft, below are the approving comments made by the elite of the American Left, posted on Twitchy, March 18, 2013.

4 Versions of Obama's Certificate of Live Birth

Unless you’ve been living on the Moon, or you’re a liberal who chooses to stay in an echo chamber with nary a contrary fact or opinion, you’d know that the only birth document Obama had ever allegedly released to sympathetic leftwing websites is that now infamous Certificate of Live Birth (COLB).
That COLB is a secondary document that presumably was generated from Obama’s presumed primary document — his long-form birth certificate that, curiously, Hawaii’s anti-birther governor, Neil Abercrombie, admits he can’t find.
That is most curious because two years ago, on October 31 2008, Director of Hawaii’s Department of Health (DOH) Dr. Chiyome Fukino declared that she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, had personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate. More than that, Fukino claimed to have seen that elusive document with her own eyeballs!:

“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.”

More curious still is the fact that sometime after the midterm elections of November 2, 2010 delivered Obama-buddy Abercrombie as Hawaii’s new governor, blogger Citizen WElls discovered, on December 7, that Fukino was no longer DOH director! Was she fired?
The original long-form birth certificate — from which a COLB is generated — contains information that the COLB does not carry, such as the names of the attending physician and the hospital where the birth took place. Here’s what a Hawaii long-form birth certificate, not a COLB,  looks like:

Obamabots insist that an online image of Obama’s alleged COLB posted on a website is sufficient to prove that he was born in Hawaii, as claimed. The problem is this:

Even if we accept that argument — which, of course, is questionable (just try obtaining a passport or a driver’s license with an online image of your ID!) — which online image of Obama’s COLB should we accept?

For the fact of the matter is that there are FOUR images of that COLB and — here’s the rub — they are not all the same
To begin, let’s look at an authentic COLB of someone who’s not Obama so that we’ll know what a valid COLB of the State of Hawaii actually looks like:

Notice the certificate number in the upper right, and the embossed seal of the State of Hawaii in the lower center.
Below are FOUR online images of Obama’s alleged COLB.
Image #1 was posted on Daily Kos:

Image #2 was posted on Fight the Smears:

Image #3 was posted on FactCheck.org:

Image #4 was also posted on FactCheck.org:

Images #1 and 2 have a black bar, on the upper right of the COLB, instead of the certificate number. The certificate number in Images #3 and 4 is not blacked out. The number is 151 1961-010641.
Only Image #4 (Factcheck.org) has what appears to be an embossed seal of the State of Hawaii in the lower half of the certificate.
Neither Image #1 (Daily Kos), nor Image #2 (Fight the Smears), nor Image #3 (posted by the same Factcheck.org as Image #4) has the embossed seal.
If all four are Obama’s COLB, why are there these differences? How can any serious person be expected to accept an online image of  a COLB as evidence of Obama’s American birth? If anyone tries to introduce these four online images — which are different from one another — as evidence in court, they’d be found at a minimum to be in contempt, or more likely be charged with outright fraud.
So next time some brainwashed mindnumbed Obamabot tells you that Obama really is constitutionally eligible because he’s produced his COLB, blah blah blah, just ask him/her:

Erh, which online image of Obama’s COLB do you mean? Is it Image #1? Or is it Image #2? Or is it Image #3? Or is it Image #4? Or is it none of those?

Top 10 Examples Of Liberal Hate
by Human Events – January 11, 2011
Even before details were clear about the Arizona shooting, Left-wingers tried to assess blame for the tragedy to Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the Second Amendment. When it became clear that the gunman was a deranged lunatic whose political philosophy was more in tune with the loony Left than the Tea Party, liberals continued to cry out against a so-called climate of hate perpetuated by Right-wingers. Perhaps those making that charge have forgotten the hatefulness and violent words coming from their own. Here are the Top 10 Examples of Liberal Hate.
(1) Palin Derangement Syndrome: The Left’s obsessive hatred of Sarah Palin is well-chronicled and is often accompanied by violent rhetoric. Let these three examples suffice: (1) Keith Halloran, a New Hampshire Democratic candidate, said on a Facebook thread that he wished Palin had been aboard the Alaska plane that crashed, killing five including Sen. Ted Stevens; (2) Another New Hampshire Democrat, Timothy Horrigan resigned from the state   legislature after writing this gem on Facebook: “Well a dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one . . .  she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’t commit any more gaffes”; and (3) foul-mouthed comedian Sandra Bernhard warned Palin she would be “gang-raped by my big black brothers” if she tried coming to New York.
(2) Obama packing heat: Barack Obama has repeatedly sprinkled his political campaigning with words more appropriate to a street thug than the President of the United States. During his 2008 campaign he said in June, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” and in September, “I want you to go out and talk to your neighbors. . . . I want you to argue with them, get in their faces.” He kept it up during the recent midterm election with this comment: “If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends . . . .”
(3) Courtland Milloy’s spit wish: Washington Post columnist Courtland Milloy said that after the health care vote he wanted to spit on and assault Tea Party members: “I know how the ‘tea party’ people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their ‘Obama Plan White Slavery’ signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads.”
(4) Krugman’s flip flop: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was first out of the box connecting the Arizona shooting to Right-wing speech that created a climate of hate, intoning, “the purveyors of hate have been treated with respect, even deference, by the GOP establishment.” He must have for gotten his own words in December 2009 during the health care debate when he wrote, “A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy.”
(5) Bush Derangement Syndrome: Before it fades into history, the liberal hatred of President Bush should be recalled. Codepink, Michael Moore, rap stars and Hollywood comedians hurled vitriol against the President. A movie was made about his assassination. But as an example of violent rhetoric, special attention should be given to remarks made by New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, who later apologized for describing fellow Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer as “the man who, how do I phrase this diplomatically, who will put a bullet between the President’s eyes if he could get away with it.”
(6) Daily Kos’ hypocrisy: Markos Moulitsas, of the liberal Daily Kos, was also quick to indict the Right for the Arizona tragedy, tweeting that Sarah Palin had “accomplished her mission,” a reference to her midterm elections bulls-eye target of politicians that included Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. However, his Daily Kos website blog also included Gifford’s district on a list of congressional districts “bulls-eyed” for primary challenges. And just last week, the website included a post declaring that Giffords was “dead to him” after she voted against Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House.
(7) Exterminate Republicans: This is what passes for a theater review in the Village Voice: Michale Feingold, while reviewing the play “King Cowboy Rufus Rules the Universe,” wrote: “Republicans don’t believe in the imagination, partly because so few of them have one, but mostly because it gets in the way of their chosen work, which is to destroy the human race and the planet. Human beings, who have imaginations, can see a recipe for disaster in the making; Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don’t give a hoot about human beings, either can’t or won’t. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm.”
(8) Hang Drudge: Liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy suggested stringing up Internet king Matt Drudge, saying, “Drudge? Aw, Drudge, somebody ought to wrap a strong Republican entrail around his neck and hoist him up about 6 feet in the air and watch him bounce.”
(9) Outright assaults: Sometimes the hatred on the Left exceeds talk and escalates to violent assaults. Cases in point: In August 2009, members of the Service Employees International Union beat up Kenneth Gladney for distributing “Don’t Tread On Me” flags at a Missouri town hall meeting. In June 2010, Nathan Tabor was punched in the face by a Democrat during a Tea Party protest in North Carolina. Last October, Human Events reporter Emily Miller was physically assaulted while interviewing Rep. Charlie Rangel during the “One Nation Working Together” rally at the National Mall in Washington.
(10) Greenpeace “knows where you live”: Greenpeace advocated mass civil disobedience last April with this blog item on its website: “The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism. . . . If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically elected governments into submission, then hear this: We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.”

Daily Kos Calls Conservatives "American Taliban"

TEA Party grandmas

Taliban jihadists

If the Left want to be taken even remotely seriously, they really need to get a grip on reality. The founder of Daily Kos says American Conservatives are just like the extreme Muslim jihadists, the Taliban. He calls Conservatives the “American Taliban.”

The Taliban, who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, want a theocracy of Sharia law. Here’s a partial list of things they prohibit:

Employment, education and sports for women; dancing; clapping during sports events; kite flying; depictions of living things, whether drawings, paintings, photographs, statues, stuffed animals, or dolls; pork, pig, pig oil; anything made from human hair; satellite dishes, cinematography, and equipment that produces the joy of music; pool tables, chess; masks; alcohol; tapes, computers, VCRs, television; anything that propagates sex and is full of music; wine; lobster; nail polish; firecrackers; statues; sewing catalogs; pictures; Christmas cards.

Punishment for violations is severe. Theft is punished by the amputation of a hand; rape and murder by public execution; and married adulterers were stoned to death. In Kabul, punishments including executions were carried out in front of crowds in the city’s soccer stadium.
And this is what Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos and author of the book, American Talibanwrote in an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle,  September 27, 2010, claiming that Conservatives are just like the Afghan Taliban:

I oppose regressive Islamic fundamentalists for the same reason I oppose regressive conservatives – because whether it’s their violent tendencies, views on women and gays, hostility to science and knowledge, or fear of pop culture, they’re cut from the same ideological cloth.
Like their reactionary counterparts in the Middle East, the American Taliban fetishize guns and weaponry. In fact, President Obama’s election has fueled an ammunition shortage that persists to this day. As myriad ideologically motivated violent incidents attest (such as the assassination of Dr. George Tiller, or the plane flown into the side of an IRS building in Dallas), they aren’t afraid to cross that line. Heck, you have a top-tier Republican Senate candidate – Sharron Angle in Nevada – declaring that if Republicans don’t take control of Congress, then “Second Amendment remedies” will be necessary. She’s talking about revolution.
Why the anger and violence? Because the American Taliban seek to impose their rigid mores on a country that is generally uninterested. Most Americans value a woman’s equal role in society. They value the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, including freedom of (and from) religion. They value open discussion and honest debate and our freedom to dissent. They value tolerance. And even where they fall short, such as marriage equality, they are more squeamish than hateful, and public sentiment is quickly moving the right way.
So when the American Taliban demonize efforts to build a Muslim community center at an old Burlington Coat Factory two blocks from ground zero, that is un-American and speaks to bigotry and intolerance. When they pass around Psalm 109 (“Let his days be few, and let another take his office. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow”) amid much chuckling, that speaks to a violent outlook that is un-American…. When they create an entire alternate reality chock full of conspiracy theories like “Acorn stole the 2008 elections” and “Obama is a socialist Kenyan communist who wants to throw conservatives into Fema-run concentration camps,” well, that disregard for truth and knowledge is un-American.
[…The above are all] reason I do not want American conservatives to win.

Buckle up your seat belts, folks. As we get closer and closer to November 2, the Left will get crazier and crazier…. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
