LISTEN: Amy Macpherson is a Canadian Journalist for the CBC, formerly of Huffington Post, who has spent a sleepless month doing some breathtaking original research on Mitt Romney and his Mormon Church's intricate machinations throughout our society. She has barely had time to edit this work, and while it will surely become a book, she wanted people to know what she's learned before they vote on Tuesday.
While it's been seen by some big dogs, few have had the courage make noise with it this late in the game. I was only handed it 90 minutes ago, I had merely skimmed it, but I found it so compelling, I got several people to start breaking it down to see if any of it can be used to bring down this scary cult-spawn named Mitt Romney.
I wish it were shorter, but I mostly wish we had it a week ago. Karoli has compiled all 8 parts of the series into one PDF for your reading pleasure (and haste).
So I was out trying to locate some new voters to register on the next to last day for new registrations, when I came across this street corner populated by some dedicated Teaparty/Romney voters keeping it classy. They had signs for just about every hysterical conspiracy theory that existed for Obama to date. They would rotate the different messages every few minutes, sometimes marching into the center of the street disrupting traffic when they could get away with it. I decided to ask them what one of them meant.
I apologize for the primitive nature of this little movie. It’s the very first I’ve edited on my own. I promise to get better if I ever decide I need a new hobby.
Cloward–Piven strategy — the teaparty activist in the video is not making-up this bit of strategy, but it never became the lynchpin of anything, as Glenn Beck has suggested. Legions of teaparty activists need these conspiracy theories, half-rooted in reality, so that they have a reason to get up each day.
It could be argued that Nixon's famous Checkers speech, 60 years old this week, which not only saved his political career, but was also his most meaningful legacy. It, more than anything else led, was the catalyst behind the media's present day interest in and disclosure of a candidate's finances (but sadly, not nearly enough, of late).
Of course, compared to Romney, Nixon was a middle class schlub. Romney won't be going this route, you can be sure. He's not as bright as Nixon was.
