Koch Family and Teabagger Loonies, 1961-2009: JFK Faced Same Crazy Rightwing Billionaire Family as Obama

Mark Ames writes in The eXiled:
While wasting time yesterday I looked up that bizarro rightwing “patriot” General Edwin A. Walker, who was fired by Kennedy for insubordination, and who was later allegedly nearly shot by Oswald in Texas, and who was tied to the notorious “JFK Wanted For Treason” flyer distributed in Dallas on the day of Kennedy’s assassination. (I posted that flyer in my last entry on the JFK-Obama Repeat scenario.)

Gen. Walker was yet another in a long illustrious line of
closet homosexual tea-bagger Republicans who, after the assassinations wound down and the South gave up fighting desegregation, ended his days in public toilets trying to suck off undercover cops a la Larry Craig. But Gen. Walker’s spirit lives on, as these chilling New York Times articles below show.

One thing that’s particularly interesting is what a true patriot Ike was, going against the insane wing of his party to support the President, despite their ideological differences. Compare that to W’s sulking-groundhog act, or Cheney’s role in firing up the crazies.

Also note that the far-rightwing John Birch Society which led the radical anti-JFK movement branding him a traitor was co-founded by none other than Fred Koch of Koch Industries. Like father, like sons: today, sons Charles and David Koch are co-founders and major funders of FreedomWorks, the Tea Party movement, Americans for Prosperity, and the crazy-rightwing movement branding Obama as a traitor...


Who'da thunk it? Top Teabagger, Husband in Trouble with IRS

Dumb Girl Politics? Tea Party Patriot Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin.

Zachary Roth writes at TPM Muckraker:
A top activist with the anti-tax Tea Party movement has had a personal brush with federal tax collectors. Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder and national co-ordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, owed, with her husband, over half a million dollars to the IRS when the pair filed for bankruptcy last year, according to filings examined by TPMmuckraker.

The couple's bankruptcy filing, made in August 2008 to the US Bankruptcy Court for Georgia's Northern District, stated that Martin and her husband Lee Martin, of Woodstock, Georgia, owed the IRS $510,000, after making a payment of $16,640 that June. The couple also owed just over $71,000 to Ford Motor Credit, the automaker's financing arm... >more


Gets around, gets around, he gets around

An Andrew Beacham Spectacular!

Hiya, boys and girls; sorry to be gone so long, but have we got a boatload of goodies for you today!

Take a good look at this character shown here: one of our Top Ten Teabaggers, Andrew Beacham, anti-abortion activist with domestic terrorists Operation Rescue, who brought you the assassin of Dr. George Tiller -- at top left, being hauled off by the cops at the University of Maryland during Obama's healthcare speech; at top right, outside Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia on the first day of school last month; and, bottom, at the big Teabaggers' shindig on September 12.

And for a real treat, catch our boy in action in the video below, at a press conference held by Operation Rescue at the National Press Club in Washington back in August. Check him out at 03:50 through 04:36:

And, now, for our piece de resistance, a leaked advance copy of a literary masterwork: The Complete Tweets Of Andrew Beacham. See him brag about infiltrating a Planned Parenthood media training session in May:

# Yesterday, I infiltrated a Planned Parenthood media training lecture. "We are happy with the current healthcare proposal" they said. 12:08 PM Aug 13th from web

Oh, how we trembled here at the offices of TW upon first reading these diamond-hard nuggets of post-post-modern haiku. We just loved how he delivers the news of Planned Parenthood's support for the bill; you can almost imagine the same tone of voice alerting us that the Chinese were going to attack next week.

Download the entire works here as a .pdf, if you dare -- 1.5mb of the noble, fighting, poetic soul of a man in tortured outpourings of 140 characters or less. (Oh, and, Andy? We have the screen shots.)


"Radio Hate" is on the air!

Scary ACORN people are coming to get you!

Mike Flugennock writes and draws at the DC Indymedia Center:
Just so we're on the same page, here: community organizing group ACORN registered large numbers of black voters in Chicago for the last big "election". As is common in many registration campaigns, there's a fair number of wise-asses registering dead peoples' names, or fake names. Also, as is required by law by boards of elections in any US city I've been to, any bogus/invalid registrations are reported, to keep the voter rolls cleared of all the dead people, and all those Luke Skywalkers and Donald Ducks.

So, anyway, outfits like the Drudge Report (has anybody informed that bonehead that the '90s are over?) get hold of this and, in their own predictable, inimitable fashion, proceed to blow this up into some kind of bogus "scandal" and throw it to the rightist k00k crowd like so much fresh, raw meat. Still, you've got to love Drudge, if only because he carries on in the finest shrieking tabloid tradition -- never let the facts get in the way of a good story -- along with providing us all with some good cheap laffs.
