    "They can threaten all they want, they'll collapse eventually." Wishful thinking or based on fact? Or is this another example of flop "facts"? What leads you to believe ISIS will collapse. What evidence do you have besides wishful thinking. By all accounts ISIS is growing not collapsing. Don't you watch the news?

    I didn't compare ISIS to Germany. I compared you to the appeaser Chamberlain. There's a big difference.

    So flop, are you suggesting we bury our heads in the sand and act like Neville Chamberlain? Doesn't it bother you that ISIS is slaughtering thousands of people and threatening to attack us and most of Europe? Is it that you don't believe them because I do.

    You obviously have poor reading comprehension skills. I did answer about her qualifications.

    What have I ever said that gives you an inclination that I don't support the middle class? Be specific.

    Like the idiot, you make up "facts". It's called lying.

    I expose you as an ignoramus and a liar and this is the best response you can give?

    Do don't know what I think about big oil and if I support those who want to dismantle the middle class or those who don't want to help the those in need.

    I believe the socialists want to dismantle the middle class. I want the middle class to grow and prosper which hasn't happened under The Dear Leader.

    Where do you dig these bogus ideas up? Oh I know, the same place up get your "facts" from.

    Wow, you are an uninformed ignoramus who has to make up facts to defend you ignorant point of view. Fiorina started out as a secretary and worker herself up trough the ranks to become a top executive at AT&T before coming to HP.

    In contrast Hussein never had any exposure to the business world and spent most of his time as a pamphleteer/community organizer. Hussein's lack of experience at doing any kind of executive work didn't bother you yet here you are falsely accusing Fiorina of having limited executive experience.

    You defend opportunistic lying, cheating, socialists thugs so you have to ask yourself, where is your moral compass and where does it point?

    I have said all along you will vote for any socialist dirt bag as long as promotes your loser socialist ideals. Ethics mean nothing to you.

    Vernon works hard at the Phone Company but spends
    two nights each week bowling, and plays golf every

    His wife thinks he's pushing himself too hard,
    so for his birthday she takes him to a local
    strip club.

    The doorman at the club greets them and says,
    "Hey, Vern! How ya doing?"

    His wife is puzzled and asks if he's been to
    this club before.

    "Oh no," says Vern."He's in my bowling league."

    When they are seated, a waitress asks Vern
    if he'd like his usual and brings over a Budweiser.

    His wife is becoming increasingly uncomfortable
    and says, "How did she know that you drink Budweiser?"

    "I recognize her, she's the waitress from the golf club.
    I always have a Bud at the end of the 1st nine, honey."

    A stripper then comes over to their table, throws her
    arms around Vern, starts torub herself all
    over him and says...
    "Hi Vern. Want your usual table dance, big boy?"

    Vern's wife, now furious,

    grabs her purse and
    storms out of the club.

    Vernfollows and spots her getting into a cab.
    Before she can slam the door, he jumps in
    beside her.

    Vern tries desperately to explain how the stripper
    must have mistaken him for someone else,
    but his wife is having none of it.

    She is screaming at him at the top of her lungs,
    calling him every 4 letter word in the book..

    The cabby turns around and says,

    'Geez Vern, you picked up a real btch this time.'

  • Dem's new agenda hauntingly similar to communism

    'Contract with America' resembles CPUSA manifesto

    AAron Klein

    Published: 15 hours ago

    Last week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a 13-point national “Progressive Agenda” that is being touted as the liberal “Contract with America.”

    The aim is for the “Progressive Agenda” to become the basis for the Democratic Party’s main economic policies, including those of its 2016 presidential candidate.

    De Blasio has compared his plan to the “Contract with America,” a document released by the Republican Party during the 1994 congressional election and drawn up by future House Speaker Newt Gingrich to serve as the GOP policy agenda.

    Now WND documents that most of the 13 points in de Blasio’s “Progressive Agenda” can also be found in the manifestos and literature of the Communist Party USA and the Socialist Party USA.

    The full progressive plan, entitled, “The Progressive Agenda to Combat Income Inequality,” can be found on the agenda’s new website.

    Now WND documents that most of the 13 points in de Blasio’s “Progressive Agenda” can also be found in the manifestos and literature of the Communist Party USA and the Socialist Party USA.

    The full progressive plan, entitled, “The Progressive Agenda to Combat Income Inequality,” can be found on the agenda’s new website.

    What do YOU think? Is communism in America’s future? Sound off in the WND Poll

    Here is a comparison of the Agenda’s plan with literature from the manifestos and writings of the Community Party USA, or CPUSA, and the Socialist Party USA, or SPUSA.

    • Progressive Agenda: “Raise the federal minimum wage, so that it reaches $15/hour, while indexing it to inflation.”

    SPUSA: “We call for a minimum wage of $15 per hour, indexed to the cost of living.”

    CPUSA: Calls for “struggles for peace, equality for the racially and nationally oppressed, equality for women job creation programs, increased minimum wage. … Even with ultra-right control of the Federal government, peoples legislative victories, such as increasing the minimum wage, can be won on an issue-by-issue basis locally, statewide, and even nationally.”

    • Progressive Agenda: “Reform the National Labor Relations Act, to enhance workers’ right to organize and rebuild the middle class.”

    SPUSA: “The Socialist Party stands for the right of all workers to organize, for worker control of industry through the democratic organization of the workplace.”

    CPUSA: “One of the most crucial ways of increasing the strength and unity of the working class as a whole is organizing the unorganized. Working-class unity depends on uniting all the diverse sectors of the multiracial, multinational working class in the U.S. … Speeding up the organization of unorganized workers is one of the most important challenges to labor and all progressive forces.”

    • Progressive Agenda: “Pass comprehensive immigration reform to grow the economy and protect against exploitation of low-wage workers.”

    SPUSA: “We defend the rights of all immigrants to education, health care, and full civil and legal rights and call for an unconditional amnesty program for all undocumented people. We oppose the imposition of any fees on those receiving amnesty. We call for full citizenship rights upon demonstrating residency for six months.”

    CPUSA: Declares the “struggle for immigrant rights is a key component of the struggle for working class unity in our country today.”

    • Progressive Agenda: Pass national paid sick leave. Pass national paid family leave.

    CPUSA: In October 2014, hails that “women are fighting back to defend their jobs and their families against candidates who want to destroy women’s reproductive rights, health care, family leave and paid sick days. Women’s voices and votes can make the difference in this election in the U.S. Senate and House, for Governors and State Legislatures, and in the movement going forward for full equality.”

    • Progressive Agenda: “Make Pre-K, after-school programs and childcare universal.”

    SPUSA: “We support public child care starting from infancy, and public education starting at age three, with caregivers and teachers of young children receiving training, wages, and benefits comparable to that of teachers at every other level of the educational system.”

    • Progressive Agenda: “Earned Income Tax Credit.” “Implement the ‘Buffett Rule’ so millionaires pay their fair share.”

    SPUSA: “We call for a steeply graduated income tax and a steeply graduated estate tax. …”

    CPUSA: “No taxes for workers and low and middle income people; progressive taxation of the wealthy and private corporations. …”

    Dems hail ‘beginning of revolution’

    De Blasio criticized Obama as “too conservative” to assert a progressive economic vision and “too afraid to take the bold kind of action that President Roosevelt took” during the Great Depression, reported the liberal news network.

    Speaking at the “Progressive Agenda” launch event outside the Capitol building last Tuesday, de Blasio said “something is changing in America.”

    “It’s time to take that energy and crystallize it into an agenda that will make a difference,” he said. “We’ll be calling on leaders and candidates to address these issues, to stiffen their backbones, to be clear and to champion these progressive policies.”

    The Hill quoted Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., saying de Blasio’s plan “could be the beginning of a revolution.”

    Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., commented the mayor’s plan represents “the meat on the bones of a progressive agenda.”

    Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., said, “The cavalry has arrived.”

    The Hill reported that at the event, some Democrats pushed back against rumors de Blasio was attempting to use the plan to nudge presidential candidate Hillary Clinton further to the left.

    “There’s gossip in Washington that this is about trying to move a certain candidate in a certain direction,” said former Democratic Vermont Gov. Howard Dean. “If you look at that candidate’s record, you’ll find that she’s embraced a lot of this already.”

    Last week’s de Blasio event was reportedly attended not only by politicians but also by union leaders and MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

    The Atlantic reported the coalition supporting de Blasio’s plan includes Dan Cantor, executive director of the Working Families Party. Cantor also was a founder of the socialist-oriented New Party.

    De Blasio once served as executive director of the New York branch of the New Party.

    WND previously exposed that President Obama himself was listed in New Party literature as a member.

    As WND reported last week, a plan drawn up by a George Soros-funded professor seeking to “rewrite” the rules of the U.S. economy forms the foundation of de Blasio’s new progressive agenda.

    De Blasio’s “Progressive Agenda” was informed by a 112-page policy report at the liberal Roosevelt Institute titled “Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy,” reported MSNBC’s Alex Seitz-Wald.

    That 112-page plan was crafted by Nobel prize-winning Columbia University economist Joseph Stiglitz, who previously conducted teach-ins at Occupy Wall Street.

    Indeed, prior to last Tuesday’s launch of the “Progressive Agenda,” de Blasio attended an economic forum at the Roosevelt Institute co-hosted by Stiglitz, where he heaped praised on the economist’s “rewriting” plan.

    Besides accepting funding from Soros, Stiglitz has engaged in numerous projects with the controversial billionaire and sits on the boards of Soros’ organizations, including one openly seeking to remake the world’s economy.

    Stiglitz is a leading proponent of more government regulation of the economy.

    He previously chaired the Commission on Global Financial Issues of Socialists International, the world’s largest socialist organization.

    Stiglitz, the brains behind de Blasio’s new plan, has been an economic adviser to Obama, but he also criticized the president’s bank-rescue plan. Stiglitz said whoever designed that plan is “either in the pocket of the banks or they’re incompetent.”

    Stiglitz won his Nobel for research on what became the theory of information asymmetry, which argues for more government intervention in failing economies than the traditional “market failure” school had previously advocated.

    He has stated that “the real debate today is about finding the right balance between the market and government.”

    “Both are needed. They can each complement each other. This balance will differ from time to time and place to place,” he has said.

    Gavin Wright, chairman of Stanford’s economics department, summarized Stiglitz’s work.

    “Broadly speaking, Joe’s theoretical work has had to do with the shortcomings and imperfections of market economy, not from the standpoint of a thorough-going rejection of the market economy but from the perspective that holds out hope for improvement through government regulation or use of the tax system,” Wright said.

    Government, business as ‘partners’

    Stiglitz was a member of President Bill Clinton’s administration, serving both in Clinton’s cabinet and as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

    Stiglitz’s most important contribution during his time in the Clinton administration was helping to define a new economic philosophy called a “third way,” which called for business and government to join hands as “partners,” while recognizing government intervention could not always correct the limitations of markets.

    “Third Way” is an ideology first promoted as an alternative to free markets by Mikhail Gorbachev after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The “Third Way” of governing would be neither capitalist nor communist, but something in between.

    In his 1998 “State of the Union” address, President Clinton outlined the “Third Way”: “We have moved past the sterile debate between those who say government is the enemy and those who say government is the answer. My fellow Americans, we have found a Third Way.”

    The “Third Way” calls for business and government to join hands as “partners.”

    Discover the Networks criticized the theory: “In short, Big Business would own the economy (as under capitalism), while Big Government would run it (as under socialism). Corporations would be persuaded to comply with government directives through subsidies, tax breaks, customized legislation, and other special privileges.”

    Soros himself has been a vocal proponent of the “Third Way” economic policy.

    Stiglitz, meanwhile, also became involved in “global warming” issues, including serving on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, helping to draft a new law for toxic wastes and serving on the boards of numerous environmental groups, such as the Alliance for Climate Protection.

    ‘No longer one superpower’

    Stiglitz is a prolific speaker. On Sept. 17, 2010, he gave a speech to the Swiss and Global Asset Management group in which his Power Point presentation, available online, stated the U.S. is mired in Japanese-style malaise because of “greater inequality” and “weaker social protection.”

    Stiglitz said the U.S. was failing to come to “terms with its standing in the New Global Order.”

    His presentation called for a “New Global Economic Order” in which the world is “no longer dominated by one ‘superpower,’” although he predicted China’s income per capita will remain much below that of the U.S.

    Soros’ economic partner, Bretton Woods

    Stiglitz is deeply tied to Soros. Stiglitz serves on the international advisory board of Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

    The economist is the co-founder and president of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue, a globalist group which is funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute.

    Along with numerous other Open Society Institute leaders, Stiglitz is a member of the Collegium International, a globalist group that proclaims in its official declaration “the Earth, home of humanity, constitutes a whole denoted by interdependence.”

    Perhaps most significantly, Stignitz sits on the board of the Institute for New Economic Thinking, or INET, an organization literally seeking to reorganize the entire global economic system.

    George Soros is INET’s founding sponsor, with the billionaire having provided a reported $25 million over five years to support INET activities.

    In April 2011, Stiglitz spoke at INET’s annual meeting, which took place in the mountains of Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.

    The gathering was held at Mount Washington Hotel, famous for hosting the original Bretton Woods economic agreements drafted in 1944. The initial conference’s goal was to rebuild a post-World War II international monetary system. The April gathering had a similar stated goal – a global economic restructuring.

    A Business Insider report on the event related, “George Soros has brought together a crack team of the world’s top economists and financial thinkers.”

    “Its aim,” continued the business newspaper, “is to remake the world’s economy as they see fit.”

    More than two-thirds of the speakers at the 2011 conference had direct ties to Soros.

    The keynote speaker at the Bretton Woods conference was Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs, a board member of INET who is tied to both Soros and Stiglitz.

    Sachs is engineer of a “shock treatment” economic doctrine that he has applied to other countries, most notably Bolivia and Poland. In both countries, critics charge, Sach’s doctrine led to economic failure.

    In 2009, Sachs narrated an audio book titled “George Soros and Joseph Stiglitz – America: How They See Us.”

    Stiglitz, meanwhile, has other ties to Soros. When he chaired the U.N.’s Commission of Experts on Reforms of the International Monetary and Financial System, the commission included Soros-tied economists, such as Robert Johnson, former chief economist of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee who previously was the managing director at Soros Fund Management. Johnson also is on the board of the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute and the Institute for America’s Future.
