Watch An Alex Jones Disciple Provide CSPAN With More Crazy Than You’ll See All Week!(Video)

An “independent” voter called into CSPAN while author David Wolman was attempting to discuss his book,“The End of Money: Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers–and the Coming Cashless Society,” and it was the best thing on television–ever.

Wolman, a Wired contributing editor, wrote the book to document his year-long journey in swearing off cash — which was, for the most part, relatively successful. The book also details Wolman’s meeting with a notorious counterfeiter, his investigation into anti-counterfeiting technology, and other related issues. It’s all innocent enough, and sounds like a good read.

Enter Lisa. When we hear the words “independent caller,” we know we’re in for a treat, and Lisa delivers with her glorious proclamations of doom. Lisa, from Kentucky, warns Wolman up front that she’s “going to be speaking in some formats that are kind of like going from here to there.”

Lisa ain’t got much of that there booklearnin’, but she is certainly going to try!

“Some of my educated words are not too well, but I am going to do my best to show y’all…”
Russia, Canada, and America, according to Lisa, are the Triforce.

Lisa goes on to explain that there is going to be a new “leaflet” formed — a new testament — that will wipe away “some of the certain zones for churches.” From there, she goes on to explain that the Federal government and Illuminati will control certain churches, and something about the “governing of the stars,” which will link us in the “universal link.” There are also “portals in the ocean” that will “bear more pressuring on the core” and cause earthquakes to screw up the zoning of oil.

You can’t make this stuff up! Watch it for yourself:

It is impossible not to admire Mr. Wolman’s ability to not fall on the floor laughing uncontrollably. Look at his face. This man deserves an award.

Democrat outraises GOP foes in region during 3-month period

You wouldn’t know about Northern Kentucky’s Republican majority and strong tea party presence by looking at who’s getting the region’s money in the 2014 Senate race.

An Enquirer analysis of Federal Election Commission reports for July through September showed Alison Lundergan Grimes – the Democrat – raised more in those three months in Northern Kentucky than Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell has raised all year in the region.

Grimes came away with $93,000 from donors in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties in the first three months of her campaign.

In that same time, McConnell took away $15,000 from Northern Kentucky donors, and Republican challenger and tea party favorite Matt Bevin collected $9,300. As of Sept. 30, McConnell has raised $32,000 all year in the region.

Grimes and McConnell have both largely relied on out-of-state donors, while Bevin has mostly self-financed.

Grimes’ early focus and success in Northern Kentucky has Democrats optimistic about her chances in this conservative area while Republicans and tea party supporters cautioned about jumping to conclusions.

“I think that is surprising,” said Jeff Kidwell, chairman of the Campbell County Republicans and Campbell County sheriff.“Most of the time, Northern Kentucky is notorious for supporting Republican candidates on a national level.”
It doesn’t surprise Democrats like Campbell County Clerk Jack Snodgrass.

“I think people are fed up with what happened in Washington in the last three or four months,” Snodgrass said.“They are kind of fed up not only with McConnell, but everybody. They want someone fresh and intelligent.”

Grimes’ campaign has focused attention on Northern Kentucky early on with two large fundraisers in the past two months and a third scheduled Dec. 2 at a home in Hebron. A Fort Mitchell fundraiser in September helped make that ZIP code, 41017, the highest earner in the state for Grimes, raising $28,000 in the third quarter. The adjacent 41011 ZIP code came in second in the state raising $27,700.

Snodgrass threw a Grimes fundraiser Nov. 14 at his Campbell County home where about 60 people attended. Snodgrass thinks the lack of federal funding for the $2.5 billion Brent Spence Bridge project and frustration over the government shutdown will play in Grimes’ favor in Northern Kentucky.

“I think people are a little disturbed about that,” Snodgrass said.“Anytime we have asked for something, we’ve been stonewalled. I think that was a lot of the talk at our house (at the fundraiser).”

Grimes has supported federal funding for the bridge instead of tolls, but hasn’t said where the federal money would come from.

'It's still early,' NKY Republican leader says
Republicans and tea party activists see more Northern Kentucky support for McConnell and Bevin going into 2014.

Kidwell suspects Northern Kentucky will see more McConnell fundraisers in 2014.

“McConnell has his base here,” Kidwell said.“I think it’s still early yet. A lot of people try to read a lot of things into the early reports. Everyone is wanting to see a trend. Once we get past January, then we will see what the trends are.”

Northern Kentucky’s strong tea party presence, however, could pose a problem for McConnell and may have muted McConnell’s support in the region, said Stephen Voss, a University of Kentucky political science professor.

“His relationship with the Boone County Republicans has not been especially strong,” said Voss, referring to the strong tea party presence and recent but failed attempt to get the Boone County GOP to endorse Bevin.“They seem to be at the forefront of the Bevin activism.”

Bevin didn’t come away with a lot of Northern Kentucky dollars, though his fundraising didn’t start until midway through the third quarter.

He’s personally loaned his campaign $600,000 out of the total $822,000 raised. Most of his outside donations have come from his hometown of Louisville, accounting for $57,000 of the $83,000 raised statewide.

Tea partiers who back Bevin share optimism about their candidate’s ability to raise funds and think his outside fundraising will pick up once people get to know him. He announced his candidacy in August and has spent most of that time speaking to tea party groups and community events around the state introducing himself.

Bevin has started holding more fundraisers, including one Tuesday in Lexington, said John Kemper, a tea party activist from Lexington who last week joined Bevin’s campaign as director of grass-roots operations. Bevin’s ability to self-fund in the early stages and not have to rely on fundraisers has given people a chance to know him, he said.

“It is kind of like making a snowman,” Kemper said.“You have to start from nothing, and then you have to work your way up. Getting people to write checks early on is difficult. You have to give them a chance to kick the tires and watch the campaign some.”

Local money won’t likely play the biggest part in this Senate race, Voss said. California fundraisers for Grimes where celebrities Steven Spielberg, Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand donated helped put Grimes ahead of McConnell in total fundraising dollars for the third quarter of 2013.

Grimes raised $693,000 from California donors compared with $505,0000 from Kentucky donors.

McConnell has raised large sums from Washington-area donors and PACs, totaling $460,000 in the third quarter.

“Money is going to flood in from states outside Kentucky’s borders,” Voss said.“I expect the need for in-state fundraising to be less than usual. They will be well-financed campaigns regardless.”

A family dinner

Like many Americans, my friends and family will gather around the dinner table this week, more than once, and catch up on each others complicated lives. Give the easy advice when it's someone else's dilemma and then spill our own, seemingly irresolvable challenges right on the decked holiday table, along with steaming sliced turkey meat and stains from past cranberry sauces. But we may be having one of those feasts in an unusual venue this year, a hospital room for a senior family member. She's been having some worrisome episodes, the kind of problem that is terrifying to the patient even though it doesn't appear to be life threatening, and most frustrating of all, the kind of problem that resists easy diagnosis.

That's enough to properly scare any family or patient. It means endless tests, lots of dead-ends, and doctor consults. But here in the U.S., there's one thing that never comes up: No one asks us kids to open up our meager checkbooks and cut huge checks right and left or the patient will get kicked right out of the hospital with a giant bill they'll never be able to repay.

It's not the ideal Thanksgiving, and yet there is reason to be thankful there. Follow me below.

I'm thankful that almost 50 years ago, in 1965, under the leadership of President Lyndon Johnson and a democratically controlled Congress, we created Title XVIII of the Social Security Act to provide health care to people age 65 and older, regardless of networth, income, or preexisting conditions. Medicare was a simple proposition: we would all pitch in to make sure our parents and grandparents had high quality affordable health care available, something they had lacked until then, secure in the knowledge that if we lived long enough, our friends and neighbors and countrymen would likewise pitch in for us.

It was called socialism, it was called Marxism, it was called much worse, at time when those words carried a lot more than rhetorical weight, they landed squarely on a public whipped into a panic at nightmare visions of a thousand mushrooms clouds blooming over every city. Even without a nuclear war, some predicted the mere enactment of the law would mark the End of Freedom and Liberty.

Now we know better; without Medicare and the expansions, fixes, and tweaks that followed, both my parents, millions of other seniors, and at least one popular front-page writer on this very site might not be looking forward to a relaxing Thanksgiving this week with their loved ones. I'm thankful for them and for that.

I'm thankful for the president who signed the ACA, a man who withstood and withstands to this day a 24/7 barrage of the most personalized, revolting displays of political contempt, hypocrisy, and open hatred seen in the post-war era.

Like many Americans I too often take them for granted, it's always been this way after all. And like many Americans, I should be more grateful for them, or at least show it more, or tell them how much I care about them. Maybe this week would be a good time to start thanking everyone we care about and depend on.

I'm thankful to you: The citizen-activists that spring up on Daily Kos and throughout the progressive netroots like digital minute men on a moments notice, battling evil—not just when its weak, but when evil seems invincible. The diarists, you guys and gals who somehow seem to be able to absorb the equivalent of a grad course on a new subject in hours flat, then take the time to turn around, become part web-page designer and part author, and artfully lay it out for the rest of us to learn and share.

I'm thankful I belong to a political movement that sticks up for the weak and vulnerable, the easily scapegoated, and speaks for those who have been systematically robbed of their political voice.

There is nothing easier in this world than going to bat for the privileged few at the expense of We the People. But we will occupy the same place in the history books as abolitionists, you will find us in the same pages as those who demanded women be able to vote or who braved marching along hostile streets for civil rights, and all the many less known men and women who paid a steep personal or political price for American progress.

So I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. And come back soon, refreshed and ready to roll. There is much we have left to do.

'You don’t dream when you’ve got food stamps.' Really?

Rep. Paul Ryan's attempts to rebrand himself as an anti-poverty crusader—and the Washington Post's pre-Thanksgiving puff piece helping him make that case—have taken a lot of hits, from Alec MacGillis, Jared Bernstein, and others. But aside from the fact that Ryan's record shows him to be more against poor people than against poverty, Jonathan Chait zeroed in on something, said by the head of an anti-poverty program Ryan supports, that seemed worth a little more attention as a general point:

“Paul wants people to dream again,” Holloway said of Ryan.“You don’t dream when you’ve got food stamps.”

In fact, lots of people who survived on food stamps — like J.K. Rowling — went on to achieve great things.J.K. Rowling starting a hugely beloved modern classic of fantasy certainly goes to show it's possible to dream when you've got food stamps. Then there's President Barack Obama, who implicitly linked food stamps and the struggle to achieve dreams in his acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention:

In the face of that young student, who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, I think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree, who once turned to food stamps, but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships.
What about other people whose ability to dream and struggle and strive and succeed was apparently not hurt by food stamps? Let's check it out below the fold.

Former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter: "When my father left our family, I was 13 years old. My mother went on food stamps for a year, until she found work as a bookkeeper. Those food stamps were a lifeline for us. I do now know what we would have done otherwise."

Sen. Patty Murray: "When my father was diagnosed with MS and to stop working, it was food stamps that helped my family keep our heads above the water and put food on the table while my mom looked for work."

Rep. Barbara Lee: "When I was a young, single mother, I was on public assistance. It was a bridge over troubled water, and without it, I wouldn't be where I am today."

Former Rep. Joe Baca: "As a young Veteran, food stamps helped me feed my family."

Politicians not the kind of dreamer you respect? Fear not! People go on from food stamps to all kinds of achievement.

Music: Moby says "food stamps enabled my mom and I to eat without having to ask for hand-outs."
Acting: Tobey Maguire recalled how "Me and my Mom would go into a grocery store and get groceries and pay for them with food stamps, and I would run out of the store embarrassed."

Sports: Baseball's father-son legacy of Cecil Fielder and Prince Fielder relied on food stamps early in Cecil's career. WNBA center Ruth Riley has been outspoken about how free school lunches "gave me the energy I needed to learn in school and participate in sports."

And of course, given the sheer number of people who've participated in nutrition programs over the years, there are millions of everyday successful adults—teachers, lawyers, writers, chefs, executives—who would say things similar to what politicians, actors, musicians and athletes say about how food stamps helped them get through tough times.

Of course, not everyone who needs food stamps at some point in their lives goes on to lavish success. But, as with so many other things about government assistance, that's more about poverty than it is about assistance. This is, after all, a nation where rich kids with low test scores are more likely to graduate from college than poor kids with high test scores and where, in big parts of the country, a kid raised in the bottom fifth of the income scale has less than a 10 percent chance of rising to the top fifth. And Paul Ryan's policies would make those outcomes worse, at the same time he's trying to rid himself of the stench of Mitt Romney by claiming to be some kind of anti-poverty crusader.

Anyway, Paul Ryan's own dreams apparently weren't killed by the Social Security survivor benefits he collected after his father died.

Yes we did. It was time to put a stop to the ignorance and hypocrisy of the teabagger republiCONS holding up progress and using that trick to block nominees of President Obama. More times than any President ever or all of them put together. Shameful. Here is how they felt under President Bush.....

GOP senators on filibustering appointees...

1. Mitch McConnell (KY)

“Any President’s judicial nominees should receive careful consideration. But after that debate, they deserve a simple up-or-down vote”(5/19/05).

“Let's get back to the way the Senate operated for over 200 years, up or down votes on the president's nominee, no matter who the president is, no matter who's in control of the Senate”(5/22/05).

2. John Cornyn (TX)

“ilibusters of judicial nominations are uniquely offensive to our nation’s constitutional design”(6/4/03).

“embers of this distinguished body have long and consistently obeyed an unwritten rule not to block the confirmation of judicial nominees by filibuster. But, this Senate tradition, this unwritten rule has now been broken and it is crucial that we find a way to ensure the rule won’t be broken in the future”(6/5/03).

3. Lamar Alexander (TN)

“If there is a Democratic President and I am in this body, and if he nominates a judge, I will never vote to deny a vote on that judge”(3/11/03).

“I would never filibuster any President's judicial nominee. Period”(6/9/05).

4. John McCain (AZ)

“I’ve always believed that . There has to be extraordinary circumstances to vote against them. Elections have consequences”(6/18/13).

5. Chuck Grassley (IA)

“It would be a real constitutional crisis if we up the confirmation of judges from 51 to 60”(2/11/03).

“e can’t find anywhere in the Constitution that says a supermajority is needed for confirmation”(5/8/05).

6. Saxby Chambliss (GA)

“I believe is in violation of the Constitution”(4/13/05).

7. Lindsey Graham (SC)

“I think filibustering judges will destroy the judiciary over time. I think it’s unconstitutional”(5/23/05).

8. Johnny Isakson (GA)

“I will vote to support a vote, up or down, on every nominee. Understanding that, were I in the minority party and the issues reversed, I would take exactly the same position because this document, our Constitution, does not equivocate”(5/19/05).

9. James Inhofe (OK)

“This outrageous grab for power by the Senate minority is wrong and contrary to our oath to support and defend the Constitution”(3/11/03).

10. Mike Crapo (ID)

“he Constitution requires the Senate to hold up-or-down votes on all nominees”(5/25/05).

11 . Richard Shelby (AL)

“Why not allow the President to do his job of selecting judicial nominees and let us do our job in confirming or denying them? Principles of fairness call for it and the Constitution requires it”(11/12/03).

12. Orrin Hatch (UT)*

Filibustering judicial nominees is “unfair, dangerous, partisan, and unconstitutional”(1/12/05).

*Hatch claims he still opposes filibusters of judicial nominees and often votes “present” instead of “no” on cloture votes. But as Drew noted:“Because ending a filibuster requires 60 ‘yes’ votes, voting ‘present’ is identical to voting ‘no.’ Hatch’s decision to vote ‘present’ is an affirmative decision to continue the filibuster.”

Everything You Need to Know About the Filibuster in 3 Minutes (Video)

With so many lies and distortions regarding Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats’ brave decision to put an end to Republican cheating in the Senate and finally reform the easily abused filibuster rules, it’s no wonder that many Americans are confused as to why this change was absolutely necessary.

Luckily, Bill Maher and this week’s panel on HBO’s Real Time summed it all up beautifully in this very informative three minute segment.

Just as former Republican governor of Maryland, Bob Ehrlich, started to whitewash history and paint a false equivalency between the two major parties regarding the abuse of the Senate filibuster, Democratic strategist Paul Begala, Bill Maher, and English journalist Katty Kay jumped in and corrected him with a lesson on history, politics, and statistics.

Detailing the Republican Party’s unprecedented abuse of the Senate filibuster in order to obstruct Pres. Obama’s agenda, the three liberals correctly made the case that Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats were forced to use the “nuclear option” in the interest of getting Washington to get back to actually governing.

I would tell you more, but I do not want to spoil it for you. Please watch the video below and share this and other related articles on social media forums so that everyone will understand that Harry Reid made the right decision to “go nuclear.”

Hey RC Co-Cola, sorry I missed you! Hope you enjoy your movie. Yes, I did get to see your "Lisa" post - what a hoot! I think she's even too crazy to be the bottom-feeder, but most likely related, right?

Glad to see that Alison's raising more money than Mamaw. He's probably just beginning to see the writing on the wall. As it is, his lips are always pursed so tightly it looks like he's eating green persimmons. If she keeps raising money like this, ol' Mamaw's mouth will disappear completely. Self righteous old coot.

Hope you have a great week!

Obsess much? Can't wait to hear all of your personal descriptions (attacks) on all the dems that lose in the midterm elections. lmao Just a fun fact for you...remember all the millions of dollars and united support the unions and democrats put into fighting Governor Walker of Wisconsin? They got their ass handed to them. Ouch! So embarrassing, wasn't it? lol Those big bucks helped the dems...how? LMMFAO Seems as if your select memory has failed you again. Don't worry tho...you're in good company. Your messiah "knows nothing", too.
