Conservatives Accuse Paul Ryan Of Being A Secret Muslim Because He Has A Beard

Attention House Speaker Paul Ryan: the honeymoon is officially over.

Remember how GOP members of the house virtually begged Ryan to become Speaker of the House when John Boehner resigned and Kevin McCarthy declined the job? Well, now they’re saying he’s not really a conservative and even accusing Ryan of being a secret Muslim. Want proof? Take a look at that beard Ryan’s growing.

President Obama must be sitting in the Oval Office and laughing his ass off!

What most enraged those on the far right is that Ryan dared to cooperate with the White House and Democrats to pass the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill earlier this month. Apparently this was a treasonous act because Republicans are always wanting to shut down the government.

Here’s some of what has been posted online about Speaker Ryan recently:

As it happens, President Obama has indeed taken note of what the right wingers are saying about Ryan and his “Muslim beard.” Ryan even brought it up at a recent meeting with the President:

“As Ryan and Obama were putting the final touches on the spending deal, the now-bearded Speaker told the president that some on the right have accused him of being a Muslim, Al Hunt recounted in a Bloomberg View column.

“The president, who has long faced the same absurd allegation, chuckled.”

Hey, Paul, the verbal and online abuse is almost over for the President. How long can you take the same he’s had to endure for seven years now? Better grow a thick skin along with that new beard.

What Happens When You Put A Hitler Quote On Trump’s Picture? His Fans Don’t Even Notice

Earlier this month, I wrote an article in which I compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. Some people wrote to tell me they agreed and others said I had gone too far. Fair enough. As the old saying goes, You can’t please everyone.

Trump, it should be noted, has suggested starting a database of all Muslim Americans as a way of combatting terrorism, despite the fact that such an act would blatantly violate the U.S. Constitution.

Earlier this week, someone decided to take a photo of Trump, slap a quote from Hitler atop it, and see what the online reaction would be from Trump’s slavish minions. Check this out:

How did Trumpites like the picture of their leader paired with a quote from Der Führer? They freaking loved it! It was shared 28 times and accumulated over 100 “likes” in 11 hours on Facebook. And not a single person managed to do a Google search and find out where the quote actually came from. There were comments of “Amen” from some and others wrote“#TRUMPFORPRESIDENT.” Here’s a sampling of what some other Trump acolytes were proud to vomit out:

To the people who support Donald Trump so avidly, so blindly, without bothering to engage their brains as they listen to the crap that spews out of his mouth, I have a suggestion: Extend your right hand and arm outward in front of you. Now shout a loud and hearty “Sieg heil!” I bet that makes you tingle all over, doesn’t it? Now slap yourself in the face with both hands and go hide your head in shame. You’ve all earned it.

Abuse of Power Police in America WTF?!

Infant Girl Attacked By Police Dog After Cops Detain The Wrong Person (Video)

Take a good look at the adorable 17-month-old little girl you see in the photo above. Does she look dangerous to you? No, of course she doesn’t. But police in Henderson, Nevada, turned a police dog loose on her and she was bitten on her arm repeatedly, as you can see in this picture:

1

This all began in January of last year. The video of the incident (seen below) has only now reached the light of day because a local newspaper filed a Freedom of Information request. And just before the K9 officer was allowed into the car, a police officer who pulled Arturo Arenas over for allegedly being a suspect in a robbery tells Arenas:

“You’re okay, just relax. They thought that you were involved in a robbery. You don’t look like the person so it’s okay now, okay?”

Yet only minutes later, the video shows the cops letting the dog into the car where it attacked the child as she screamed repeatedly in pain and horror.

Even worse is the fact that no robbery had occurred! There was no reason to detain Mr. Arenas and his daughter. None! Police were responding to a call from a health food store owner who claimed that someone had “threatened” to rob him after getting upset because they could not return some protein powder. The customer left the store without incident.

Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers had this comment on the matter:

“The dog may have been used too quickly and there could have been additional communication among officers prior use.”

Is he freaking kidding us with that? The dog may have been used too quickly?! Yeah, ya think so?!

The Arenas family was awarded a settlement of $13,000 for the child’s injuries, but Mr. Arenas noted:

“I don’t understand why it happened. I believe they are supposed to be trained for this situation. I practically didn’t see any trained officers. My daughter wakes up many times in the middle of the night scared. She occasionally wakes up crying.”

So to any police officers out there who dare to question why so many Americans are terrified of them and don’t trust them, I offer this incident in Henderson, Nevada, as Exhibits A through Z.

Watch the Police Video

Pants On Fire! Mike Huckabee Now Denies Defending Pervy Josh Duggar

Mike Huckabee, who is polling at a whopping 1 percent in the GOP field, has said he may well drop out of th 2016 race if he doesn’t do well in the Iowa primary, but considering the lie he told Tuesday regarding admitted sister molester Josh Duggar, it might be a good idea if he went and pulled the plug right now.

You may recall that back in May, when the Duggar matter hit the media with the force of a catastrophic earthquake wrapped in a hurricane, Brother Mike rushed to Josh Duggar’s defense, gladly proclaiming on Facebook:

“No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story. Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things. No one needs to defend Josh’s actions as a teenager, but the fact that he confessed his sins to those he harmed, sought help, and has gone forward to live a responsible and circumspect life as an adult is testament to his family’s authenticity and humility.”

Sounds like a pretty full-throated defense of Josh Duggar to me. How about you?

Yet on Tuesday, Huckabee had the nerve to say:

“I really didn’t support Josh. I supported his parents, if you’ll go back and look at what I said. There’s no support for what he did.”

Well, Huck, we just went back and looked at what you said, and it sounds a whole hell of a lot like you were indeed supporting Josh and saying that he had confessed his sins, so live and let live.

Also, if you were supporting the parents, who enabled their son’s abysmal behavior by not reporting it and making sure he was prosecuted to the full extent of the law, you had a role in allowing this pervert to do whatever he wanted and get away with it. How do we know there aren’t more girls who may come forward one day and make similar accusations against Josh?

So, Mike, I have a bit of advice for you: Drop out of the race now and go offer your Christian counseling services to the Duggar family. I’m sure they’d love to have a hypocrite like you on their side. Then again, you already are!

5 Completely Wack Things Ted Cruz Promises He Will Do If Elected POTUS In 2016

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has big plans if he is elected President, and those radical ideas should be keeping us all up at night, terrified of what might happen if this man happens to reach the White House. Let’s take a look at 5 things Cruz has said he will start work on the first day he takes the reins of power:

1. He Would Try To Destroy Planned Parenthood

This is one of Cruz’s major sops to the far right of the GOP. No doubt Cruz also believes that a woman has no right to choose her own reproductive health and future, but he hits this soundbite again and again to prove his extremist credentials, telling a group of voters earlier this year:

“They were certainly caught on film, that there is no doubt that they were selling baby parts. That is unambiguous. The videos show senior Planned Parenthood officials selling the parts of unborn children, and it is a federal criminal offense. It’s a felony to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit.”

This is, we all know, a barefaced lie, and it’s one Cruz repeats everywhere.

2. He Would Repeal Obamacare

Another favorite hot button point for Cruz, has commented:

“I remain fully committed to repealing every single word of Obamacare. Mark my words, following the election in 2016, the referendum that we will have in 2017. This chamber will return and we will repeal every word of Obamacare.”

The great irony of this is that Cruz himself is on Obamacare because his wife is on leave from her job and he got his healthcare through her plan. So just put this one in the Irony and Hypocrisy column.

3. He Wants To Fight ISIS…In Mexico…WTF?!

The big threat from ISIS, Cruz has said, lies on the southern border of the United States:

“Washington should resolve to make border security a top priority finally, rather than an afterthought, of this plan in light of concerns about potential ISIS activities on our southern border.”

That kind of ignorance only serves to make your teeth hurt when you read it.

4. He Would Rip Up The Iran Nuclear Deal

Cruz loathes the Iran nuclear deal reached after years of negotiations. Cruz says this would be his action on Day One as President:

“We’ve seen six and a half years of President Obama leading from behind. Weakness is provocative, and this Iranian nuclear deal is nothing short of catastrophic. This deal, on its face, will send over $100 billion to the Ayatollah Khamenei, making the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism…You’d better believe it. If I am elected president, on the very first day in office, I will rip to shreds this catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.”

Translation: Get ready, because we’re about to go to war in Iran.

5. He Would Declare Jerusalem The Capital Of Israel And Move Our Embassy From Tel Aviv

Another one that Cruz loves to crow about when seeking the votes of evangelical Christians who think the Israeli-Palestinian issue is all the fault of the Palestinians. Here’s Cruz on that matter:

“The next president should announce that America is moving its embassy to Jerusalem. For decades political candidates, Republicans and Democrats, have talked about doing so. Enough talk! We need a leader who will act and respect the eternal capital of Israel.”

Which would, of course, only serve to further exacerbate the problem of conflict in the Middle East. You think the region is a mess now? This would make matters worse.

So, Teddy Boy, you have some big ideas indeed. And all of them are a load of bilious crapola. Thanks for playing our game, and now please go back to Texas where some people actually like what you say. The rest of us are beyond tired of you.
