I think this is pretty accurate:



The way American conservatives (and also many corporate Democrats) have deified Reagan as this heroic figure who could do no wrong is exactly the same way the Stalinists in the USSR talked about Lenin.

I'm surprised they didn't preserve his body in a mausoleum somewhere in Washington.

You can say the same about Democrats and FDR.

Meehhhh...I gotta disagree. That might have been true 50 years ago, but certainly not today. Democrats stopped embracing the New Deal and FDR sometime in the 70s, and nowadays you're more likely to hear powerful Democrats praising Reagan than Roosevelt. At the very least, the policies they enact owe more to Reagan, and since actions speak louder than words, I think that fact speaks for itself.

Also, the list of things named after Ronald Reagan is constantly growing, but they don't name too much stuff after FDR anymore. The difference is that the American ruling elite was never as comfortable with Roosevelt, but with his New Deal reforms considered him "a traitor to his class" (the title of a recent FDR biography by H.W. Brands). Reagan, on the other hand, was the ultimate corporate pitchman. He was a servant to business interests first and foremost, and beyond that, he glorified wealth and corporate rule, putting a glossy sheen of Americana over the inequality and poverty his policies caused. It's no wonder the oligarchic rulers of today's United States are so enamoured with Reagan.

I looked and I think this thread is the only place for this one...


Victoria Jackson: Muslim Brotherhood Taking Over America, Six Hour FBI Meeting

Former "Saturday Night Live" actress Victoria Jackson, working on confidential information she as a web talk show host has special clearance to obtain, has claimed that the United States is being overtaken by radical Muslims bent on bringing the nation under Sharia law.

"I just went to a briefing in Washington DC, across the street from the Capitol, at the Longworth building at 8:30 am two days ago and it changed my life," Jackson said last week on her web show, "Politichicks." "For six hours, I saw pictures and names and dates and facts and Islamic law books and Korans, Surahs for six hours and they proved to me... that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our highest positions in government and this is serious."

Jackson also detailed the meeting in an earlier blog post this December. In that post, she details testimony given by John Guandolo, a former FBI agent who worked on the case against former Louisiana Rep. William Jefferson. Guandolo resigned from the FBI in 2008 after he was caught trying to score a $75,000 donation for an anti-terrorism group from a wealthy Jefferson case witness with whom he was having an affair. Guandolo now gives speeches on the existential threat of Islam, claiming that Muslim groups are using political correctness and political insurgency to stop FBI and police officers from stopping their spread of Sharia law.

The actress-turned-pundit also reported testimony from Maj. Stephen Coughlin, who in 2008 was effectively fired from his post at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, because, many conservatives believe, he was a staunch anti-Islamic extremist advocate. Wired reports that his contract was not renewed after a staffer for Gordon England, then the deputy secretary of defense, raised questions about his work. Last January, Coughlin gave a maligned speech during an FBI presentation on Muslim extremism.

Claiming that it was strongly hinted that President Obama was a Muslim -- his policies all favor Muslims and are against Israel, she claims to have been told -- Jackson says in the video that the ultimatum pushed by terrorist groups in America is "You have to convert or be killed."

While she says that the meeting forever changed her, Jackson has already long claimed that Muslims -- led by secret Muslim and terrorist sympathizer President Obama -- are quietly taking over the United States government. She also has famously taken umbrage with gays and "Glee," including a highly publicized string of attacks last March.

"This new al-Qaida magazine for women has beauty tips and suicide-bomber tips! Gimme a break!" she wrote in a blog post for World Net Daily. "That is as ridiculous as two men kissing on the mouth! And I don't care what is politically correct. Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an 'alternate lifestyle'! There I said it! Ridiculous!"

This fall, Jackson visited the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zuccotti Park to challenge protestors, though it did not work out so well for her.

"Michelle [sic] Bachmann and Rick Santorum are the only GOP candidates so far to acknowledge the above facts and warn against the present threat of Islamic Law replacing our Constitution," Jackson concluded in her blog post on the ex-FBI briefing. In a Fox News appearance early in December, she called Bachmann "my girl" and said, "Very few people in America are informed and educated as I am."

There are not enough facepalms in the universe for this story. I don't know whether to laugh at or cry for this idiot.

She's absolutely right about that. Most people are better informed.

I think any "democrats are weak on defense" argument has effectively gone out the window with the Obama administration.

You'd think so, but it doesn't actually matter what the Democrats do; the Republicans will always use this as a talking point.

P.S. A president's "strength" on national defense should not be based on a rubric of trying to out-Republican the Republicans.
