The News Pauper: The American Dream is in the Way of the Master Raceit Must Be Destroyed.

By W.B. Dunne

How is that going to be done?

Ask the next generation, right now, if they have any faith at all in their 401kstheyll say, What 401k? Put out story after story about the weakness of the Social Security system and the failures of government in general. Starve the system, with inordinately large tax cuts for the rich and create a culture where the representatives feel free to take bribes from lobbyists to submit bills that industry wrote themselves. In other words, foment chaos and undermine the rule of law.

I would like to thank the GOP for releasing their August outrage accelerant in this:

It really is quite the exquisite propaganda piece. It has jarred the News Pauper from his repose in the dismay from the BP debacleand heres why:

If on September 11, 2001, you realized that you were witnessing a commercial shoot for the 2010 midterms, what would your reaction have been? Language does not exist to describe the below-lowliness of the GOP for creating a false controversy in the form of the Ground Zero mosque, which is not at Ground Zero and is farther away than a mosque that was there from before 9-11and conflating it with the image of the twin towers being hit in this one-minute commercial.

This is exemplary of their desperation. They’re convinced that they have sufficiently stirred up the racist element in the voting block with the border brouhaha and can simply transfer that energy to the Muslims just in time for the election. I know that there is someone out there that would be more eloquent about the ethics of this offensive, truly un-American atrocity, and I look forward to any feedback that may help me comprehend what lies behind it. It is brutally simple. It wont work; the NP predicts that there will be the mother of all backfires.

Americans are decent people; they possess the capacity for empathy when it is cultivated. Our country has had great leadership from people that knew what the common welfare meant. Only in recent times have we fallen from the sensible path, especially with the advent of Fox News and their brand of “journalism.”

Kudos to Obama for putting Tom DeLay back in the limelight; it is nicely placed in the election pre-season. What a great reminder to the public of the institutionalized corruption of the GOP. Tom will, no doubt, appear on Fox to crow about his “exoneration,” when in fact the AG probably figured that prosecuting him was too expensive for the resulting wrist slap from the GOPs Supreme Court. Better to use his notoriety and famous vanity to put the hypocrisy of a once grand old party on display.

The GOP cannot get away with this; nothing will remove the stain that George W Bush was to the GOP brand. Some media company isnt going to revive them by turning their greatest failure into anything other than just thatan Epic Fail.

The News Pauper: A Thing of Beauty

By W.B. Dunne

It is with particular delight that the News Pauper announces that Eric Holder is my new favorite Attorney General ever

The announcement that the trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is to be held in New York City has led some on the right to say that the AG has granted citizenship to the terrorists. Bah actually, this is shaping up to be the route Obama will have to take in order to reverse the precedents set by the past eight years of Cheney-mentia.

I had not thought of it at first, but what a completely brilliant way to flip the flow on the criminal mismanagement that has occurred. By having this trial to begin with, the system has a chance to heal from its wounds, the press will have little else to focus on, and the facts of the case will certainly expose the treason of the architects of the policy. The right-wing noise machine is already wringing its hands at the terror of terrifying terrorists, in NYC, by having a fair and impartial trial in broad daylight. This is because it creates a scenario that if the criminals get off on any technicality, it will be that they did not receive the speedy trial they, and we, deserved.

A hearty, extra helping of reality to the Bush-wreckers of the Constitution.

The News Pauper: As I Look into the Future

As I Look into the Future

By W.B. Dunne

“Even the lay people knew by then it was Al-Qaeda.”
From the pages of Hullabaloo.

The News Pauper gets his news the way most of you do, from journalists and news outlets that are supposed to be bound to the concept of a free press to inform an interested, active populace. These agencies exist to tell us the truth, and we repay them with the funds they need to conduct fair research. That is why there are so many bankrupt news agencies out there — they didnt do their jobs. There were plenty of stenographers eagerly trolling for access by dutifully dictating the totalitarian Bushies every false word. Dividing the people into two groups, believers and non-believers, was always the plan.

The day the towers went down in flames I was of the opinion that the event was either the biggest failure of intelligence this country had ever had, or we were witnessing a coup. The more time from that event that passes, the more that I am of the opinion that the facts point to the latter premisethe behavior of the Bush administration leaves me no choice but to suspect the worst.
