>by Robert L. Gallimore , |DLU| June 20, 2012 | [See the beginning of the Conspiracy Theory - the take-down of President Obama below and watch the video: Secret meeting to take down Obama exposed
In part is, that the GOP members in Congress are doing their jobs on stabilizing the economy with the President and that there’s no intentional plot to sabotage the US Economy to make President Obama look bad! OK, if you believe that than your eyes are deliberately – shut! If that’s the case than I think you need to Shut-Off Fox News – Now! You are intentionally misled by the Right-wing media outlet on the subject of the US Economy. And maybe if you are seriously concerned about the situation and you have an objective mind, than it’s time you obtain the correct, unbiased information and show less ignorance toward the real and current administration on the economy situation. Paul Krugman said it best “So the Republican electoral strategy is , in effect, a gigantic con game: it depends on convincing voters that the bad economy is the result of big-spending policies that President Obama hasn’t followed (in large part because the G.O.P. wouldn’t let him), and that our woes can be cured by pursuing more of the same policies that have already failed.” And it you can’t see this picture you are swayed to believe that the Republican Party is the savior of our economic woes. Take a clear look at the articles below on this conspiracy theory on the economics!
From the Congressional level, commit to do nothing for the next four years, refuses everything for now on, every policy and procedure, obstruction the process, filibuster; use the Conservative majority Supreme Court – if necessary! Involve the Governors to change as many state level laws on abortion, Immigration, and equal/civil rights; basically enact Conservative-ism movement!
This is the reasons nothing is being accomplished in Congress from the Republican side; it’s because the Right-wing got their orders to refuse everything ergo the “Party of No,” the “Do Nothing Congress” and the “Obstructionist” parties were enacted and blame the black guy and his administration for the problems in America.
“In 1948 these same tactics where used by the Republican controlled Congress, [incumbent Democratic] President Harry S. Truman , trailing in the polls, decided to adopt a slashing, no-holds-barred campaign. He ridiculed Dewey [ Republican Thomas E. Dewey ] by name, criticized Dewey’s refusal to address specific issues, and scornfully targeted the Republican-controlled 80th Congress with a wave of relentless, and blistering, partisan assaults. He nicknamed the Republican-controlled Congress as the “Do-Nothing” Congress , a remark which brought strong criticism from GOP Congressional leaders (such as Taft), but no comment from Dewey” [ 1 ] back then and you know that the Republicans live in the past and if it where up to them, they would opt to return to times when hand guns were visible on their hips, shoot out in the main streets over minor disputes and where they could hang people in the streets, in the back-woods and riding a horse and buggy down the middle of the road – with nothing said about it!
“It should be noted that: Under Dewey’s leadership [Liberal Republican], the Republicans had enacted a platform at their 1948 convention that called for expanding Social Security , more funding for public housing, civil rights legislation, and promotion of health and education by the federal government. These positions were, however, unacceptable to the conservative Congressional Republican leadership . Truman exploited this rift in the opposing party by calling a special session of Congress on “Turnip Day” (referring to an old piece of Missouri folklore about planting turnips in late July) and daring the Republican Congressional leadership to pass its own platform. The 80th Congress played into Truman’s hands, delivering very little in the way of substantive legislation during this time. The GOP’s lack of action in the “turnip” session of Congress allowed Truman to continue his attacks on the ” do-nothing” Republican-controlled Congress . Truman simply ignored the fact that Dewey’s policies were considerably more liberal than most of his fellow Republicans, and instead he concentrated his fire against what he characterized as the conservative, obstructionist tendencies of the unpopular 80th Congress.” [ 1 ]
So, history is repeating itself with the Republican controlled house, Republican members in the Senate and with the monetary aid of lobbyist in hopes to prevail this time around and defeat the Truman like Barack Obama in the 2012 election using the same failed tactic of 1948!

All of these Dark Money Conservative PAC ‘s co-founders have conspired to take down President Obama for what reason? Answer to that question is because the Obama Administration is causing “Life Changing Events” in their lives through tighter governmental regulations and because they never imagine that a Minority would ever be President in their lifetime! These groups in combination will spend one billion dollars on ads all over this country; trying to paint a negative picture to their base (conservatives) that Obama is this, Obama is doing that and etc., just look at the big picture here. All of these characters belong to a group labeled the Enemies Within, 20 Most Dangerous Conservative Leaders, the “Good Ole Boys and Girl” and on day one of the Obama inauguration, they met to conspire to take-down Obama in his first term and with no concern about the Americans people – how it affects the country as a whole? If everyday Americans are hurt in the process then so be it!
In addition, you have these senior levels, Congressional Lawmakers and rank and file Republicans attending this meeting! What come out of this meeting are orders to Congressional Lawmakers to stand firm on their commitment and orders handed-down to lower-level organizations to implement the process. See the video
On Obama’s inauguration day, Congressional Republican leadership held a secret meeting where they agreed to oppose President Obama on every economic proposal according to Robert Draper’s new book. Draper joins MSNBC ‘s Lawrence O’Donnell and Krystal Ball to discuss the President’s path forward.

What should be done about the economy? Republicans claim to have the answer: slash spending and cut taxes. What they hope voters won’t notice is that that’s precisely the policy we’ve been following the past couple of years. Never mind the Democrat in the White House; for all practical purposes, this is already the economic policy of Republican dreams.
So the Republican electoral strategy is, in effect, a gigantic con game: it depends on convincing voters that the bad economy is the result of big-spending policies that President Obama hasn’t followed (in large part because the G.O.P. wouldn’t let him), and that our woes can be cured by pursuing more of the same policies that have already failed.
For some reason, however, neither the press nor Mr. Obama’s political team has done a very good job of exposing the con.
What do I mean by saying that this is already a Republican economy? Look first at total government spending — federal, state and local. Adjusted for population growth and inflation, such spending has recently been falling at a rate not seen since the demobilization that followed the Korean War.
How is that possible? Isn’t Mr. Obama a big spender ? Actually, no; there was a brief burst of spending in late 2009 and early 2010 as the stimulus kicked in, but that boost is long behind us. Since then it has been all downhill. Cash-strapped state and local governments have laid off teachers, firefighters and police officers; meanwhile, unemployment benefits have been trailing off even though unemployment remains extremely high.
Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan & Kevin McCarthy: Plot To Sabotage US Economy with Frank Luntz
>by keepemhonest | Fri Jun 08, 2012 at 08:15 AM PDT |
On January 20, 2009 Republican Leaders in Congress literally plotted to sabotage and undermine U.S. Economy during President Obama’s Inauguration.
In Robert Draper’s book, ” Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives ” Draper wrote that during a four hour, “invitation only” meeting with GOP Hate-Propaganda Minister, Frank Luntz, the below listed Senior GOP Law Writers literally plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America’s Economy.
The Guest List:
Frank Luntz – GOP Minister of Propaganda
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA),
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX),
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA),
Sen. Jim DeMint (SC-R),
Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ-R),
Sen. Tom Coburn (OK-R),
Sen. John Ensign (NV-R) and
Sen. Bob Corker (TN-R).Non-lawmakers present Newt Gingrich
During the four hour meeting:
The senior GOP members plotted to bring Congress to a standstill regardless how much it would hurt the American Economy by pledging to obstruct and block President Obama on all legislation.
These Republican members of Congress were not simply airing their complaints regarding the other party’s political platform for four long hours. No, these Republican Congressional Policymakers, who were elected to do ‘the People’s work’ were literally plotting to sabotage, undermine and destroy the U.S. Economy.
Mitt Romney , who has hired most of Bush/Cheney Policy Advisers, and the GOP party believe they can defeat President Obama, take control of the Senate and maintaining control of the House of Representatives so long as the economic recovery stalls. So they are actively trying to make it happen … and that’s what hate-propaganda Minister Frank Luntz had in mind when he organized the January 20, 2009 covert meeting.
Republicans do not pay Frank Luntz to offer ideas for good policy to help America, rather, Republicans pay Luntz’ to devise lies that will keep Americans dumb and ignorant to facts on policy. For decades Republicans have paid Frank Luntz to tell them (Republicans) what to say in order to brainwash ‘the People’ with lies and hate to destroy policy.
Luntz does not use words to merely have Americans “change their minds.” Rather, Frank Luntz uses words intentionally to dumb-down Americans and fill them with lies and hate so as to brainwash and program Americans to hate a given policy.
Frank Luntz, like many Hate-Propaganda Ministers, loathes the notion of honesty in debate. Also, like many Hate-Propaganda Ministers, Frank Luntz wants total control … total control even it if means destroying America. So, Luntz uses the tactics similar to Joseph Goebbels: spread hate, lies and fear in order to gain control. (More on Frank Luntz at the end of this Diary).
Remember, for months prior to January 20, 2009, America had been losing over 750,000 jobs per month because of policies these same elected Republican lawmakers had enacted and their goal, their goal that night, was to plot ways to sabotage and undermine any and all legislation that would pull American families up and out of the economic calamity they [lawmakers] had helped create.
Two months after their covert meeting where they plotted to sabotage the US Economy, in March 2009, Rep. Pete Sessions said Republicans should follow the model of the Taliban in its battles against President Obama.
In the March 2009 interview with National Journal Rep Sessions said:
” Taliban Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban. Insurgency is the way they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person’s entire processes. And these Taliban — is an example of how you go about to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their [front-line] message. And we need to understand that Insurgency may be required when [dealing with] the other side “~Rep Pete Sessions, March 2009 to National Journal
Rep Pete Sessions went on to say:
“If they [democrats] do not give us those options or opportunities then we will then become Insurgency … I think Insurgency is a mindset and an attitude that we’re going to have to search for and find ways to get our message out and to be prepared to see things for what they are, rather than trying to do something about them “
Also, at their meeting they plotted to suddenly stop supporting any Stimulus Legislation, even though, they all supported Bush/Cheney Stimulus legislation.
At the meeting, Rep Kevin McCarthy said,
” We’ve gotta challenge them on every single bill .”" Show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies. “
Remember, these same Republican members of Congress supported the very Bush/Cheney policies that caused America to teeter on the brink of the 2nd Great Depression and caused the 2007 US Economic Meltdown.
Here’s how they all voted:
– “Yes” to Bush/Cheney January 2008 Stimulus
– “Yes” to Bush/Cheney bailing out Bear Stern
– “Yes” to Bush/Cheney bailing out AIG
– “Yes” to Bush/Cheney TARP (Sept 2008)
– “Yes” to Bush/Cheney TARP (Oct 2008)
And these same Republican members of Congress:
Supported Bush/Cheney keeping cost of two wars out of the Budget.Supported Bush/Cheney spending $4Trillion while giving Top 1% Tax Cuts; ignoring the fact that taxes pay for wars .
Not only did these Senior members of Congress plot to destroy the American Economy more than it already was destroyed? They actually carried out their mission:
Every one of these Senior members of Congress have threatened Government Shutdown over things like:- Funding planned parenthood,
- Raising the Debt Ceiling which, in-and-of-itself, would cause US Economic turmoil.
… oh, and stay current, these same House GOP members of Congress are still, today, threatening a Government Shutdown again over the Debt Ceiling.
Last year, during the Debt Ceiling negotiations, Eric Cantor and Sen. Jon Kyl abruptly walked out of negotiations and refused to renew discussions with Democrats. As a result, America’s credit rating was lowered which put a smile on Republican’s faces.
Senators : Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn, John Ensign, and Bob Corker have:- Filibustered more Bills (over 300) than any Congress combined in US History.
- Voted NO on every single piece of Legislation brought to the Floor including:
NO on Al Franken’s Anti-Rape Amendment,
NO on Lilly Ledbetter,
NO on Fair Pay Act,
NO on Anti-Outsourcing Bill (2010)
How in the hell could any thinking American be against those Bills? Seriously?!?
Representatives: Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Pete Sessions, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra and Dan Lungren have voted NO on every single piece of Legislation including: NO on increasing FEMA during natural disasters.
These same failed Congressmen have been on TV constantly chanting the lie that they were guilty of … the lie that “President Obama’s policies undermine the US Economy.”
Currently: Republicans Using the Transportation Bill to Sabotage the US Economy:
If the current Transportation Bill expires June 30, there will be no funding for transportation projects and 1.9 million construction workers would lose their jobs. Eric Cantor and Republicans in the House are refusing to act because Republicans would be overjoyed if almost two million Americans were added to the unemployment rolls this summer before the election.
Other Legislation used to sabotage US Economy
Republicans in Congress refused to negotiate or even discuss passing President Obama’s American Jobs Act that independent economists claim would create 1.3 million new jobs. God forbid Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan or Kevin McCarthy support an actual Bill that would put people to work building needed infrastructure and provide funds to pay to rehire hundreds of thousands of teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public service workers that have been laid off in droves by cash-starved states.
Republicans are gearing up block President Obama’s 2012 Anti-Outsourcing Bill – which is a Bill to discourage the outsourcing of American jobs, which is due to come to the Senate floor around the fourth of July.
The Washington Post reports that Republicans have made it clear that the Federal Reserve would face fierce Republican criticism if it takes further actions to stimulate the economy before the election. The Washington Post wrote that,
Republicans… have expressed deep concern about measures taken by the Fed to support the economy — and could be doubly upset if new efforts goose the stock market and are perceived to work in favor of President Obama’s re-election.
Frank Luntz Like I said above, Republicans do not pay Luntz to offer ideas for good policy to help America, rather, Republicans pay Luntz’ to devise lies will keep Americans dumb and ignorant to facts on policy. For decades Republicans have paid Frank Luntz to tell them (Republicans) what to say in order to brainwash ‘the People’ with lies and hate to destroy policy.
Luntz is so good at lying, he even lies to himself. In order to blur reality and not take responsibility for his devising the spread of propaganda through hate and lies Luntz told Matt Lauer
“I focus on words that cause people to change their minds, change their behavior even change their attitudes.”~Frank Luntz 3/2011 in interview with Matt Lauer
No, Luntz is not using words to merely have Americans “change their minds” — Luntz is using words intentionally to dumb-down Americans and fill them with lies and hate so as to brainwash and program Americans to hate a given policy. Luntz has been the Republican Hate-Propaganda Minister since at least 1993 and his list of words to stop policies that help America are vast:
Don’t say “oil drilling.” Say “energy independence.” Don’t say “inheritance tax.” Say “death tax.”
Don’t say “Capitalism.” Say “Economic Freedom.”
Don’t say that the government ‘taxes the rich.’ Say Government “takes from the rich.”
Don’t admit Lobbyists are Collective Bargainers for Corporations. Say “Union Collective Bargaining steals your tax dollars.”
Luntz says people hate government so:
Don’t say “healthcare reform.” Say “government takeover.”
Don’t say “Public workers.” Call them “Government workers.”
For the 2012 election, Frank Luntz is training his failed co-harts in the Republican party on what Luntz says are “the three most powerful words to use” to con people is: “I get it. “Luntz says:
Don’t tell Occupy Wall Street “you don’t give a shit.” Say “I get it.” Don’t tell struggling Americans “you’re on your own.” Say “I get it.”
Don’t tell Occupy Wall Street “you should protest Wall Street.” Say “You should occupy the White House.”
Yes, it is true, the House Republican Leaders: Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy met in secret and plotted to sabotage and undermine the US Economy … I call them TRAITORS TO AMERICA. So, the next time you hear the GOP say ” Obama wants to destroy the economy ” or ” Government Shutdown ” … remember … as Newt Gingrich said after their four hour dinner on January 20, 2009 “You’ll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown.”
To Translate GINGRICH:
” You’ll remember this day as they day we became Traitors to the United States. “
My hope is that Americans and all members of Congress are reminded via twitter, facebook and all other forms of media over and over and over:
Republican Leaders in Congress literally plotted to sabotage the US Economy on January 20, 2009.
Even more evidence that GOP is sabotaging U.S. economy>by Pat Cunningham | |Posted on June 13, 2012 at 9:09 am |
Two days ago, I gave you THIS .
Yesterday, I gave you THIS .
Today, I give you THIS :
The Republicans’ 2012 election strategy is perversely brilliant: Sabotage President Barack Obama’s job-creation efforts, then blame him for the wreckage. This strategy was in action the other day, when Mitt Romney assailed Mr. Obama on the stump. Mr. Romney said that “with America in crisis, with 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, he hasn’t put forth a plan to get us working again.”
Mr. Romney conveniently omitted the fact that Mr. Obama put forth such a jobs plan last autumn. The American Jobs Act would have put as many as 2 million construction workers, cops, teachers and firefighters back to work — so said economic forecasters — if only congressional Republicans hadn’t dynamited it.
Yes, sabotage was required. Republicans knew their prospects for beating Mr. Obama would be damaged if they signed on to a plan that got more Americans working again. They’re far too invested in economic misery to let that happen. As Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell candidly remarked in 2010, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
- Still more evidence that GOP is sabotaging U.S. economy
- More evidence that Republicans have intentionally sabotaged the U.S. economy
- Is the GOP sabotaging the economy? Is the pope a Catholic?
- More evidence that Republican politicians don’t want the economy to improve on Obama’s watch
- Gallup: Americans trust Obama more than Romney to do the right thing about the economy
