Government Propagana, Sedition, and Ft. Hood Subpoena

Can't we all just get along?  No, I didn't think so...

From Politico:  Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight committee, is demanding a slew of documents from the Securities and Exchange Commission, asserting that the timing of civil charges against Goldman Sachs raises “serious questions about the commission’s independence and impartiality.”

Issa’s letter, addressed to SEC Chairwoman Mary Schapiro and signed by eight other House Republicans, asks whether the commission had any contact about the case, prior to its public release, with White House aides, Democratic Party committee officials, or members of Congress or their staff.

“[W]e are concerned that politics have unduly influenced the decision and timing of the commission’s controversial enforcement action against Goldman,” Issa writes.

Issa implied that the timing was a bit too convenient, saying President Barack Obama’s push on Wall Street reform “neatly coincided with the commission’s announcement of the suit.”

AARP reports:  Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility.”  [Think Tea Party put-downs and disruptions.]
Astroturf is the act of professional interest groups designing campaigns that appear to be grassroots efforts, but are not. It is what the left has accused the tea parties of being. Only more and more it looks like the anti-tea party movement is truly astroturfing.
Writing on January 15, 2010, Glenn Greenwald at Salon noted Barack Obama’s new head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein , had championed creating fake websites and using outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to act as alleged independent champions of government policy and to “cognitively infiltrate” opposition websites, etc.
In other words, Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility. Kind of like what has been happening with the tea party movement – lots of SEIU members pretending to be tea party activists causing violence in front of TV cameras.
Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.” He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging
Considering Sunstein’s recommendations, it is not far removed to speculate the Obama administration is behind a new anti-tea party website called The Other 95 , which defends the government from tea party criticisms and attacks the tea party movement as fringe.
The website purports to be authentically grassroots, though one must wonder when the last time was any grassroots activist took the time to defend the government.
The designer is affilated with and other leftwing sites and causes.

On NBC's April 18 "The Chris Matthews Show," Time columnist Joe Klein all but accused former GOP vice-presidential nominee and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, along with Fox News host Glenn Beck of sedition.

"I did a little bit of research just before this show - it's on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition which is conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right up close to being seditious."
[Proving that he is oh, so in touch with the values of Tea Party citizens], New York magazine's John Heilemann also suggested that the alleged up tick in militia activity is a result of the Obama presidency. Klein said it was not only the Obama presidency, but that he was "African-American," and had "Hussein" as a middle name, along with the "scary" economic crisis. [And I assume he thinks there is nothing inflammatory about these lies....]

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 Acorn CEO Bertha Lewis "Tea Party is a Bowel Movement", speaking at the Winter Conference of the Young Democratic Socialists on March 25, 2010.

The world now knows that ACORN is a dirty corrupt organization willing to break laws to make a buck by now but here is a video showing how Bertha Lewis (CEO of ACORN) really feels about Conservatives and the Tea Party Movement. If this doesn't give you an understanding of how our President feels about our Country nothing can turn you around. ACORN was Obama's family until he got into politics.  Part of her statements: "If any of you can say I'm young, I'm a Democrat, and I'm a Socialist" - Here she ardently claps... She added, "You’ve got to know, actually, we are living in a time that’s going to dwarf the McCarthy era. It is going to dwarf the internment of World War II. We are right now in a time that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation.
They are coming. And they are coming after you. And they are going to be brutal and oppressive. They’ve already shown it. … This is not rhetoric or hyperbole — this is real. … This tea party so-called movement — a bowel-movement in my estimation — and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism." [I believe that any fair-minded person will see this as inflammatory speech, and none of it true.  I have heard black men and gays on the radio saying they have never been anywhere else where they are so warmly accepted and embraced as at Tea Parties - except for insults from black and gay anti-Tea Party protesters, of course.]
