"This is — the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president." — Hillary Clinton. January 27, 1998.She was talking in part of the activities of billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife at the time the Lewinsky scandal broke. He was not a singularity. The Republicans in the House ended up impeaching Bill Clinton. In Wisconsin the governor, Scott Walker, is working for the billionaire Koch Brothers and their interests. So much so, he breaks laws to install their desires. That on top of hard legal tactics that give no quarter.
There is an organised, interlocking, movement of money, and ambitious politicians to create an american fascist state. Remember, fascism is the corporate state, where business and government are one. Of course, we have seen that this melds with militarism, nationalism and racism quite easily. In Germany the form created (in the 1930s) was diabolic in intensity and catastrophic for civilisation.
Media Matters has found audio of the Washington boss of Fox News [sic], telling people he created "mischievous speculation" in tying candidate Barack Obama to socialism in the 2008 campaign. Idiot after idiot Republican voter lapped this up and continued to regurgitate it to all of his acquaintances.
Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Steve King (Iowa) and any number of Texas congressman regularly make insane comments that are picked up and repeated. The so called 'base' that gwbjr's brain (Rove) kept appealing to, endorses this bizarre nonsense instantly.
And we have "Newtie". Somehow this pompous, deluded, narcissistic reprobate was a professor of history. If he taught the same things he has publicly said, then there are some strange undergraduate notebooks in Georgia. It is not unusual to have oddballs in a faculty, but they are generally quickly recognised and consigned to be ignored in regards to anything serious.
Gingrich came to the House speakership by forcing James Wright (D) out over book royalties (Gingrich had a similar book relationship). The adulterer Gingrich pushed impeachment on President Clinton over the Lewinsky affair. Well Gingrich, a recent Catholic (his current wife, that he was sleeping with when he was married to his second wife, is Catholic) showed up to the extreme anti-Catholic bigot John Hagee's church, last Sunday. The pursuit of the presidency is far more consistent in him, than any religiosity.
Recently he has had several, successive, contradictory positions on Libya. He has complained about what anti-christian values professors have. And in Texas, he just said:
"I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."
