Wingnut Wrapup

It's been so long up there in Canada that I fear my sarcasm generator has atrophied a little, but here goes- back to work:

Ken Klukowski, Breitbart:  "Myths about birthright citizenship—promoted by liberals, embraced by establishment Republicans, and repeated by mainstream media pundits without critical examination—have been debunked by experts spanning the political spectrum. But none of those people are being given A-list treatment by major media outlets to respond. 

Instead, the voices given the biggest public platforms are commentators who lack any professional credentials on the topic, who breezily assure viewers that “of course everyone knows” that the Fourteenth Amendment confers citizenship on everyone born in this country."

"Experts."  Experts "debunk..."  Well, here's the text: decide for yourself:

" All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States"

Funny that the same people who insist that the second amendment confers a right to posess weapons more violent than anything the founding fathers could have ever imagined, can't read this simple sentence.  Their "experts," by the way?  A former law clerk for Clarence Thomas, a guy who works for the Koch Brothers funded  Heritage Foundation, an article in the "Texas Review of Law and Politics," whose stated mission is to publish  "thoughtful and intellectually rigorous conservative articles--articles that traditional law reviews often fail to publish," i.e. Conservative lies, and Hans Von Spakowski, the Bush administration Justice Department tool who spent his time converting the Civil Rights division from dealing with crimes against black people, to fighting the imaginary persecution of right wing Christians.   Experts spanning the political spectrum- right.  Spanning the spectrum from criminal right wingers to mentally ill right wingers.

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart:  "GOP CONSULTANT: GET CLOSE TO TRUMP THEN ‘SHIV HIM IN THE RIBS,’ LIKE ‘BRUTUS KILLED CAESAR’

The standard Republican strategy for just about everything, as far as I can see.

D.W. Wilber, Town Hall:  "Hillary’s Top Ten Excuses To Avoid Jail"

D. W. forgot this one:  She didn't do anything illegal.  Of course, why should that stop Republicans from throwing her in prison?  It worked so well in Na...  Oh there I go again!  Godwin protect me!

Town Hall:  "Jeb Bush Won't Say He'll 'Rip Up' Iran Nuclear Agreement"

Well, maybe he'll "stuff it in the wastebasket."  Or "light it on fire."  Or "eat the paper it's written on."  Will that do?  No, only ripping it up will satisfy the legal experts at Town Hall.

Meghan Fox, PJ Media:  "Planned Parenthood Blasts Music That ‘Sounds Like It Came From Hell’ at Peaceful Protesters"

The horror!  That is so much worse than saying things like this about them, which comes from later in this article:

"We know they are delivering live, whole babies (who are kicking!) and cutting their faces off to extract brains"

No shame at all.  Man, these people should be writing for the ScFi channel.  Planned Parenthood, on the other hand, are monsters for playing music that right wing assholes don't like.  They should just be thankful that Planned Parenthood didn't play any Buddy Guy- he'd have them running home and hiding under the bed.


Oh, and while we are visiting with Meghan Fox, here's a little more:

Meghan Fox, PJ Media:  "My Baby Screams in Restaurants and I am SO Sorry!"

Well, thanks for sharing that with us, Meghan.  Slow news day, huh?

Paula Bolyard, PJ Media:  "You Won’t Believe What My Son Was Called for Saying He Loves America and Supports the Police"

No I won't, because I was already too bored to read the article and find out..

Michael T. Hamilton, PJ Media:  "Why Our Family Will Keep Watching ‘The Cosby Show’...Why dethrone such a show now, when it is needed most?"

The real reason:  They don't give a damn how many women he drugged and raped; they're all for him if it pisses liberals off.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Dozens of North Korean Subs Have Left Their Bases… Can’t Be Located"

Can't be located by you, Jim.  But then, I don't think you can locate your underwear in your dresser without help.

Lloyd Marcus, Renew America:  "Which GOP contender will keep their word in the WH"

They all will, Lloyd.  They'll keep their word to the Koch brothers.  As for their stupid "base," fat chance.

Laurie Roth, Renew America:  "Some googly-eyed search engines just aren't bigger than God, now or in 2016"

Huh?

Susan D. Harris, Renew America:  "Preterists in sheep's clothing: the growing plague of end times deception"

Man, these guys are going off the deep end.  "Preterism," which I had never heard of until today, apparently has something to do with the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D.  I am sure that will be a very helpful guide to our conduct in the world today.

Cliff Kincaid, Renew America:  "Kremlin TV backing "Bolshevik Bernie" for President"

"Bolshevik Bernie."  Whatever.

Bryan Fischer, Renew America:  "Birthright citizenship is unconstitutional"

Even though it is in the Constitution.  Man, these people are certainly adept at creative thinking.

Thomas Beaumont, My Way:  "Cruz outshines Bush at Americans for Prosperity summit"

The way things are going these days, a free screening of "Battlefield Earth" could outshine Bush.

Quin Hilyer, National Review Online:  "On Immigration, Santorum Adds Substance"

There's a laugh for you.  As well as a real sign of what a pathetic bunch the Republican Presidential candidates are, when people are counting on Rick Santorum to bring "substance" to the race.  His substance on illegal immigrants?

"...a 25 percent cut in the number of legal immigrants. On top of the by-now familiar steps to curtail illegals — new walls, new border technology, more agents at the border"

New walls and new agents.  What a creative, never before suggested solution!

Allahpundit, Hot Air:  "Should the GOP be trying to draft more candidates into the race?"

Oy.


And now the award for the most meaningless jingoism of the day:

"Ron Paul: For Immigration Answers, Look to Liberty"

Liberty!  Hooah!  Liberty to do what?  Who knows?

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "As Stock Market Tanks Obama Heads to Vegas to Push for More Solar Energy"

Somehow, those two things are related.


And, continuing with the Stupidest Man on the Internet:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Activist: Aborted Baby Found Discarded among Chicken Bones in a Kentucky Fried Chicken Box"

Today's Story Least Likely to be True.  This alleged incident happened thirty years ago, and of course there is not one shred of evidence that it is real. I can find no verifiable mention of this claim before the idiot Jim Hoft wrote about it yesterday; now it is spreading like ebola all over the right wing blogosphere, where it will incite outrage for a couple of days before disappearing into the ether.

Laurie Roth, Renew America:  "Google--Big rabid dog"

Whatever.  Laurie has this to say:

"Stand up for freedom of speech and the truth this election cycle"

Which, since she is a right wing shill, of course consists in sending her money.


And now, sad to say, some of the most abominable racist lying I have ever seen:

Ellis Washington, Renew America:  "Kristallnacht DemocratNacht"

Yes, this son of a bitch is going to go there.

"why did America wait 8 long years (from Hitler's appointment as Chancellor of Germany to Congress repeal of the Neutrality Act, Nov. 4, 1941), before the FDR administration would criticize or act against the Nazi regime? Because FDR (like all Democrat Socialists) are doctrinaire anti-Semites whose Nazi-like policies are given social standing and moral legitimacy by the legions of Jewish sycophants who voted for FDR (4 times) and the few he allowed inside his administration (Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau being the most conspicuous). Indeed despite British PM Winston Churchill literally begging FDR day and night to help Europe, to help the Jews being sent to Hitler Holocaust ovens unmolested. Historically, FDR's delay until Japan's bombing of the U.S. military base at Pearl Harbor (Dec. 6, 1941) made FDR and the Democrat Socialist Party complicit with rest of the Western World in the mass murder of European Jewry... 

Hitler and Goebbels demonic Kristallnacht lasted two days, yet its devastating effects against the Jewish people lasted many, many decades, even to this day. Nevertheless, an exponentially greater genocide against humanity is the DemocratNacht (Democrat Night), which has been an existential Democrat Holocaust that has been unleashed from the pit of Hell ever since the first slaves arrived in America in 1619 literally where Holocaust Democrats, brick-by-brick have deconstructed America, American exceptionalism, and our Judeo-Christian traditions and institutions, especially the Courts, the Church, the Family and Culture."

I can't even bring myself to comment on this.  Renew America is a major, mainstream right wing website, and this is what they are selling to their hundreds of thousands of readers.  What hope does this sort of thing leave for the future of our country?

And with that, enough already.

The 14th Amendment does not guarantee citizenship for everyone born in the United States. Let me quote the State Department:

"A person born in the United States to a foreign diplomatic officer accredited to the United States is not subject to the jurisdiction of United States law. Therefore, that person cannot be considered a U.S. citizen at birth under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. This person may, however, be considered a permanent resident at birth and able to receive a green card through creation of record."

That person must have resided in the U.S. since birth to be eligible for this green card, however.

It's simple to end birthright citizenship for a class of people -- all you have to do is exempt them from the jurisdiction of U.S. law. Since this creates a class of people who can violate the law with impunity, I doubt that even the GOP would do that.
