New Obama adviser compares
GOP to Jonestown cult

USA Today, by Aamer Madhani

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 12/18/2013 11:52:43 AM

John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.

And of course the only reaction from the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey´s was a spokesperson for Crying Johnny saying he took offense. We all know what would happen if... Oh why bother, they will never fight back. I have come to the conclusion that they are in on the deal; playing good cop to the regime´s bad and laughing all the way to the bank.

Sure Johnny Podesta. Let´s not dig too deeply into the history of the People´s Temple and its relationships, we might add, with the Democratic Party, especially in California. It might embarass a few high-ranking donks in DC.

I´m sure the New York Times will be outraged by such nasty talk during Zero´s 5 years of national healing and coming together.

A split country was, of course, what he had in mind all along. Keep on driving that wedge, Zero. Eventually, there will be hell to pay.

Of one thing I am certain, once you can´t do anything else for them, Nothingburger, the liberal/socialist/communist mainstream media complex will turn on you with a vengeance. Don´t be counting on any kind of positive legacy. The MSM will blame YOU for what they, themselves, are in large part responsible for.

Not to belabor the obvious, but the Jonestown people were socialists who followed a false messiah.

Sounds a lot closer to the Democrats.

A classic example of projection!!! Psychological projection was conceptualized by Sigmund Freud in the 1900s as a defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world. For example, a person who is rude may accuse other people of being rude.

Podesta sounds like a man who doesn´t realize that when his client´s poll numbers have reached post-Watergate levels, it is not smart to bully the opposition. We will have a new Congress in 11 months, and Obama may be in need of every one of the few friends he has left after November.

Love an unforced error. Obama is up to his neck in trouble an the hit man Podesta steps in it.

Republicans ought to remind people what Jim Jones and his followers in Jamestown believed it was/is very similar to the CoolAid drinkers in the democrat party today.

Sure hope Obama does not tell his followers to drink the poison laced cocktail becuase I believe they would.

Sound familiar? (Hint: He was a "community organizer.")

But, alas, Podesta "apologized." No thanks Johnny boy. Your words are still floating around in space, forever. Your apology means absolutely NOTHING! But let´s remember the low-info creeps will have it recorded in their simple minds and will also forever remember his words and use them to esplain why pubbies, conservatives, Tea Partiers, are rotten. You are a pitiful donkey, Mr. Podesta!

Podesta issued the P-word for his party?

Propaganda for the plantation.

Both parties been calling each other Kool-aide drinkers for a long time.

Time to start using the P-word and by so doing educate the public. GOP won´t do it as fear will turn on them?

Out the democrat propagandis----ts and they will use the "Both parties do it" defense. In this case both parties do do it but the dems do it better because the MSM and MSMBC will champion it.

Can´t even say Podesta dog-whistling top his minions or they whine about being compared to dogs. The dem voters aren´t politically astute and the independents pride themselves on not being---so there we are.

#28: "When are the pubs going to start fighting fire with fire?"

A better question would be "How do we get the major media to stop intentionally repeating lies and intentionally suppressing the truth.

For instance, they know the KKK was a Dem project that murdered white Republicans and blacks (almost all of whom were Republicans if they succeeded in registering to vote).

For instance the NRA was active *helping* blacks to be armed, so they could protect themselves against Dems and KKK.

For instance, top independent economic experts reject the claim that minimum wage laws help minorities or the poor.

For instance Occupy Wall Street are the violent, raping, littering bunch, not the Tea Party.

For instance, all mass shooters are socialists or leftists of one kind or another. And gun-free zones (and cities) have *higher* rates of gun crime.

Yet, in *every one* of these cases, the media lie through their teeth, blaming the good guys and the sound policies. They get *everything important* exactly backwards!

Over and over!

This is not an accident! It is intentional deception, through "silent" conspiracy!

The only way to defeat it is to destroy the mainstream media. L-dotters, send all of your friends to Lucianne, to Townhall, to whatever dose of the truth they can handle.

If they are liberal, challenge them to try to "correct" the views they see. They will have to read what they are trying to "correct."

That´s the way to fight fire!

Modern psychiatry has a name for this sort of thing. It is called projection. Mindless obedience to a dogma and a coercive system of political correctness to enforce it with brutal intolerance for dissent, were the hallmarks of the Jonestown Cult. Now who does that remind you of? Liberals know this. Which why the constant accusations of racism, genocide, war on women, gun violence and what not are routinely hurled at opponents. If you what to know what lurks in the darkest recesses of their minds just look at the venom they spew.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
