The violent rightwing nutters have to be stopped..curbstomping women is never justified

Timmy ‘the thug’ Profitt with his man Rand

After MoveOn’s Lauren Valle’s head was stomped into a curb by a member of Rand Pauls’ team..I mean, thug, things have gotten to the end of the line as far as I am concerned. A rightwinger named Silverfiddle likes to comment on my blog when I post something negative about the batshit crazies known to us as Teabaggers.

He had the nads to post this quote on the post below this one…I quote him:

Thuggery begets thuggery… 

He gives nothing to support his comment, but as far as his rightwing nutter-ass is concerned, this type of behavior is evidently justified..in any situation.

It’s not…not by any group or individual. It’s disgusting, it’s ignorant and as far as I am concerned, its against the law as it’s an attack without provocation, because the individual, Tim Profitt, who stomped Lauren’s head and neck, is a truck load of pond scum who has zero credibility as an intelligent, thinking, rational human being.

Rand Paul originally loved this jackhole,as he listed his dumb ass as a wonderful, magnanimous supporter, ole Timmy had given him roughly 1500 bucks, per Lawrence O’Donnells show….before he moved far far away from this bag of batshit and dumped his disgusting ass after he curbstomped a small, unarmed female exercising her right to free speech. From the FDL piece linked above:

The Paul campaign has disassociated with Profitt, who was the campaign’s Bourbon County coordinator. But before they did, in today’s Lexington Herald-Leader, the Paul campaign ran a full-page ad touting Profitt’s support:Profitt’s name appears at the bottom of the ad.

If this doesn’t show the voters of KY wtf they will get if they elect Rand Paul…then they are so far gone over the edge, it is fucking hopeless. They are nothing more than ignorant, uneducated assholes who care nothing about the constitution or the bill of rights….merely getting a white male-led government again…ala George W. Bush.

I am happy to report this bag of sheep shit has been ordered to appear in court after Lauren was released from the hospital with a concussion. The sumbitch actually is defending his actions by blaming the ‘camera angle’, that he was concerned for Rand Paul’s safety and (I love this one) the cops should of intervened. From the Chron  link above:

Lexington Division of Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said Tuesday that officers will deliver a summons to Profitt to appear in court. A judge will determine whether to proceed with an assault case.

Profitt said the fight never would have occurred if police officers had intervened earlier.

“A friend of mine went up to three policeman before Rand got there, and told them about the girl who was standing there with that wig on and that she was getting ready to do something,” Profitt said. “The policemen looked at him and said that’s not our job.”

 Oh yeah…a small female holding nothing but a cardboard sign was going to harm Rand Paul. Give me an effin break you American Terrorist. You fucking bully. You are a disgusting piece of human excrement Tim Profitt and I hope to hell you have charges to face in court…although considering the venue, I highly doubt it. The fight? You stupid fuck, there was no fight, she simply tried to protect herself from you stupid bastards..nothing more.

UPDATE: Lisa Graas, a KY blogger has Id’d the second asshole that went after Lauren.  His name is Mike Pezzano. Another douche nozzle who hopefully gets a summons to appear in court on this attack as well.

Video: Rand’s Teaparty Thugs stomp activist from MoveOn

Sick batshit bastards…yeah, they just can’t handle anything out of their own little world can they? And these fuckers vote? Scary shit…very scary how our country has turned to this type of violence. Free speech? Not at a Rand Paul event evidently. MoJo has more detailed story here.

Sign the statement here to demand that the assholes that run the Republican Party, Rand Paul and all their fuckwitted candidates denounce these batshit teabaggers and their violence.

CREW goes after DOJ on Delay case. Files FOIA request.

Those wonderful folks at CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) have filed an FOIA request (Freedom of Information Act) with the jackholes at the DOJ demanding the doc’s to find out exactly why those fuckwits refused to prosecute one of the biggest, most corrupt former members of Congress…Tommy ‘hottub’ Delay. One would think Obama’s hue and cry about transparency would make this request a no-brainer. From CREW’s website:

Why did disgraced former Congressman Tom DeLay (R-TX) never face federal prosecution? The public has a right to know, but the Department of Justice isn’t telling. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Justice (DOJ) requesting all documents and communications related to the five year investigation into the former Texas lawmaker and his associates. Mr. DeLay is slated to face state charges in Texas later this month; as a result, CREW asked DOJ to expedite a response to the request.

“One of the most corrupt members to ever walk the halls of Congress will never have to answer for operating the House like a pay-to-play casino. The American people deserve to know what evidence the Department of Justice collected on Mr. DeLay and why that evidence was not sufficient to charge him,” said Melanie Sloan, CREW Executive Director. “The Department of Justice has not made prosecuting crooked government officials a top priority. The Public Integrity Section lacks the staff and resources necessary to prosecute even some of Washington’s demonstrably most unscrupulous leaders.  The Obama administration must ensure this section has resources it needs to do its job properly. After all, if Tom DeLay can get away with brazenly selling legislative assistance to Jack Abramoff, who knows what other scheming self-interested members of Congress might try?”

I don’t know about you folks, but I am friggin dying to know why Eric Holder and company refused to prosecute this corrupt bag of batshit.

Environmental grp sues to reinstate deepwater drilling moratorium.

The Center for Biological Diversity has filed (pdf) a lawsuit challenging the federal government’s logic on this issue. From Jurist:

The Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit Friday against Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, seeking to have the deepwater drilling moratorium reinstated. The lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, argues that Salazar’s order to lift the ban without conducting a comprehensive review of the effects of drilling on wildlife and the environment violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) [42 USC § 4321-4347] and is arbitrary and capricious. Earlier this month, Salazar announced the end of a six-month moratorium on certain types of deepwater oil drilling, seven weeks ahead of schedule. The moratorium was put in place following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in April, in which the Center states spilled more than “200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.” In explaining the need for the reinstatement, the center said:

    The Secretary’s failure to include and inform the public in NEPA’s decision-making process violates NEPA’s requirement that agencies make the relevant information available to the public so that it may also play a role in both the decision-making process and the implementation of the proposed activity. In the aftermath of the worst environmental disaster in American history it is arbitrary and capricious and in violation of NEPA for the Secretary to withhold from public notice, comment, and review the Environmental Assessment prior to making his decision.


The lawsuit comes as the Department of Interior (DOI) is considering granting the first drilling permit since lifting the moratorium.  

WTF? They, the oil companies, admitted they have no plan! What has changed with regard to how the oil companies drill,cut corners on safety for their employees on the rigs and how they care for the environment when it all blows up in their fucking faces?   

The Biggest Document leak in History and what it means.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ), a UK website, has the entire set of Wikileaks Iraq War Logs online, other than Wikileaks itself. The corporate news sites like the NYT, The Guardian and Der Speigel and several others, all give you their interpretations of the thousands of pages, but TBIJ site seems the most comprehensive to me. From their site, the section which tells us what exactly the thousand upon thousands of pages of doc’s, (400,000 pages), videos and military logs mean and their accompanying short video below:

Twelve weeks ago the Bureau of Investigative Journalism was given access to the biggest leak of military documents in history.

These documents formed a database of nearly 400,000 military logs recorded over six years of the Iraq war and covering the years 2004 to 2009.

There are over 37 million words used to recount military significant actions that took place across the entire country. This material provides an unrivaled portrait of one of the most controversial wars of the modern age.

For the first time the files reveal just how much the American military detailed the escalating violence in Iraq, and how this contrasts markedly to what the politicians said in public. This is the story behind the pronouncements – the uncensored detail Washington did not want us to know.

First off, the number of unreported civilian deaths just boggles my mind. The Iraq Body Count site estimates that this leak uncovers 15,000 more civilian deaths than our government reported. This of course raises the total level of deaths, regardless of group, country affiliation and including combatants to more than 150,000.Another quote to blow your mind:

Following the release of the US military war logs, the civilian death toll has risen from 107,000 to 122,000, according to Iraq Body Count.

I have been perusing the TBIJ site most of today and it just gets more ugly, grim and nightmarish with each page/story.  The following line, from this page, just took my breath away:

On the same day 123 secret logs, including reports of the murder of 128 civilians, were filed.*

Holy fuckamoly, I just have a hard time wrapping my mind around everything I read there. Bear in mind that all the civilian deaths were not caused by US or Coalition troops. But…. Hundreds of civilians were gunned down in error at checkpoints…their deaths never reported to anyone.

Mutha Fuckas..Our government lied and continues to lie to us about the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. Why do I say they continue to lie? Well because, for one thing, the Obama administration handed over detainees despite reports of torture by Iraq government authorities. This is a clear violation of international law, drawn up by the United Nations Convention Against Torture, ratified by the US in 1994, for any government to transfer detainees to a regime at whose hands they face torture or other serious human rights violations.

That last paragraph above should make your friggin day…it sure as fuck made mine. A small price to pay my ass.
