Arnold Schwarzenegger, Meg Whitman and the Tarpster Neel Tushar Kashkari

Original post made by Conservative Voter, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Sep 22, 2014

How long has it been since we've had a real conservative to vote for? 11 years since Jack in 2003. At least Donnelly was close.

Sigh.

43 wasn't a true conservative either. Never veto'd a spending bill. Cloaked it in 'compassionate conservatism'. Doubled the debt. Didn't do jack for vets.

It's an important subject.

My comment about bringing back Bush was satirical.

Jeb Bush supporter, I too don't know what a "tarpster" is, but I do know that "smarter" in the Bush family doesn't have to meet a high bar. Richer, more devious, more delusional, even less ethical -- these are more meaningful measures with which to judge members of this destructive family one against the other.

Neel Tushar (Tarpi) Kashkari is the traitor who created TARP with George W. Bush and bailed out all the crooks on Wall Street. Only positive thing out of it was it helped sour the Tea Party.


>>> But Neel Kashkari, bloody talking head of the Treasury’s financial in-stability programs, said too many rules might discourage financial groups from ringing the Fed doorbell. There were even more tricks. He mentioned firms applying for treats might own assets that qualified for sale under TARP. Web Link

Obummer is using these phony threats of terrorism to mobilize Homeland Security to prepare for the coup before the election. Executive orders, refusal to let congress vote on Syria, and so much more are part of a power grab unique in our history.

They are stocking up - "The DHS has faced questions over the last couple of years as to the purpose of its mass ammo purchases which have totaled over 2 billion bullets, with some fearing the federal agency is gearing up for civil unrest.

The majority of the bullets purchased by the DHS were hollow point rounds (one order alone amounted to 450 million of them). Hollow point bullets just happen to be completely unsuitable for training purposes because they cost significantly more money compared to standard firing range bullets, contradicting claims by the DHS that the bullets were merely for training purposes and were bought in bulk to save money."

Wow, this discussion just went into outer space. "Phony threats of terrorism" -- are you serious? Personally, I choose preparedness over your "theories."

For all the criticism of President Bush, NONE of it was as bizarre as what we've heard over President Obama years and NOW THIS CRAZINESS. Geez. Methinks the racism has made some folks totally irrational about just about anything Obama does or doesn't do. If he ties his shoe, it's some sort of leftist plot.

What happened to the new standards the Almanac just published? Gone already?

relax. patriots is just another in a long line of paranoid whackadoos that see conspiracies under every bush. They don't understand the old saying, "when one hears hoof beats that one should think horses and not zebras." Horses are the far likelier cause. Paranoids live for this kind of thing.

I reported Patriot's post because anyone who uses stupid nicknames for president, in writing, when wanting to be taken seriously is to be dismissed. Usually the garbage which follows their pet nickname for the POTUS is just as bad, and that was true in Patriot's post.

So President Obama is acting "to mobilize Homeland Security to prepare for the coup before the election," eh "Patriots"? Will that "coup" be like the one Bill Clinton staged at the end of 2000 so that he would remain in the White House? What? Didn't happen? It was all a rightwing nutcase fantasy?

The DHS buying ammunition thing has been a paranoid fringe fantasy since 2009, updated every time another order is placed. "The DHS has faced questions over the last couple of years as to the purpose of its mass ammo purchases which have totaled over 2 billion bullets"


But, staying on topic:
The fact that the TARP creator is the CA GOP nominee is also pretty amusing (in a schadenfreude sort of way,) in that it blows the top completely off of the fringe tea baggers heads...

The libs are stealing the senate by buying the election. "Democrats will match, or in some cases exceed, the GOP's spending in most of the Senate battlegrounds in September, according to a review of ad spending and reservations" (from hotline)

"Meanwhile, the biggest money-machine on the GOP side -- the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity and the affiliated Freedom Partners -- has dramatically scaled back its own TV spending"

All hary reid does is attack the libertarian David Koch, a truly great success, a American icon.

Glad the Reps are so scared of the Dems that they resort to crazy charges -- it just digs the hole deeper. GOP's hysteria is going to make for some funny reading in coming months.

And....I'm VERY GLAD Harry Reid keeps David Koch's name in the political discussion -- because Koch scares the heck out of me. Corporate fascism is a real threat to our democracy.

HA HA "can't believe I am reading this" ---- I also can't believe I am reading THIS: The latest Koch Bros. effort to block "certain" voters. And this is not the Koch Bros. 1st anti-democracy move. Their record in North Carolina is especially well-known.

Here's the latest Koch Bros. campaign.........

The Raleigh News & Observer first reported Thursday that Americans for Prosperity's North Carolina chapter was responsible for sending an “official application form” to voters that contained erroneous information.

The mailers contained conflicting information about the deadline to submit voter registration forms, incorrect contact information for the Secretary of State and State Board of Elections offices and an incorrect explanation about how voters are notified that their information has been received.
