White House and Think Progress merger complete

White House and Think Progress merger complete

The Center for American Progress (CAP), the George Soros funded Democratic messaging machine, runs the aggressive Think Progress website.

Think Progress is obsessed with attacking the Tea Party movement as racist, the Koch Brothers as evil manipulators, and Clarence Thomas as corrupt.  Think Progress blogger Matthew Yglesias helped ignite the false story that Sarah Palin’s electoral map was connected to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.

Think Progress is the public face of CAP, dominating news cycles with its relentless attacks on anyone who opposes Obama.

CAP, which was run for years by former Clinton adviser John Podesta, now is run by a former Obama campaign staffer, Neera Tanden.

Now the White House is bringing a senior CAP strategist Jennifer Palmieri into the White House to help prepare for the 2012 campaign.  As reported by Glenn Thrush at Politico:

The White House is bringing onboard  high-octane Clinton administration  veteran Jennifer Palmieri , a top official at the progressive Center for  American Progress think tank, to beef up its communications unit heading into  2012, POLITICO has learned.

Palmieri , who currently serves as president of CAP’s political action fund  and as a senior vice president at the parent organization, replaces former  deputy communications director Jennifer Psaki, who left for the private sector  earlier this fall.

A senior Obama campaign official now runs CAP and Think Progress.  A senior CAP strategist now helps run the 2012 campaign from inside the White House.  The full embrace of CAP and Think Progress by the White House is just another sign that 2012 will be the nastiest campaign ever, with the truth the first victim.

The merger of the White House and Think Progress is just about complete.  Think Progress is in control, or is the Obama campaign, or is there no difference anymore?

Ever notice the incredibly prominent placement of ThinkProgress on Memeorandum? I’m not a techie by any means, but I strongly suspect, if not actual collusion with the folks behind Memeorandum, then at least a very deliberate attempt to exploit their algorithms.

This is exactly why we need someone like Gingrich who will go right after Obama. Pull no punches. Call a spade a spade. Not sqirm in his chair when asked a question even if its for the “100th time”. Someone who provides a stark contrast to Obama. With a record of achievement on jobs, balanced budgets, and entitlement reform. Someone who has led a revolution.

It’s gonna get ugly.

As ThinkProgress directs the internet narrative, cbsabcnbc toes the Obama line and is a major influence on the seniors without alternative internet sources of news.

No matter the polling reports of general dissatisfaction in the country with Obama, the media will do his campaigning for him and conservatives must rally and work hard for the opposing candidate.

“I’m Barack Obama, and George Soros approved this message.”

George Soros has had his puppet hand up Obama’s ass from day one. If you want to read a book that will unveil all of the marxists in the White House(And this book is thoroughly researched with documentation and footnotes) I suggest you read Trevor Loudon’s “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within”.

3/4 of the people working in the white house worked for a Soros funded organization before coming there.

And people mock ME for calling Obama a marxist. Puleeeze.

The GOP had better learn and quickly how to fight dirty. Instead of whining about how our potential candidates just aren’t qualified to be POTUS or how they are an embarrassment the GOP pundits should be organizing an full blown dumpster dive to find whatever dirt/scandal/misbehavior they can on Obama and his entire staff.

I’m so tired of the GOP being told to “tale the high road” – all that does is get your clock cleaned when you’re faced with opposition who will stop at nothing to personally destroy their opponents. Time to fight fire with fire or smear with smear.

    I think that any thorough investigation of the current regime would put most of ’em in jail for the foreseeable future. But chances of that happening are about zilch…

    The Republicans just need to be willing to state the truth about 0bama, his supporters, and his handlers. The only reason they need to “dumpster dive” is because that miserable maladjusted, miscreant crew has thrown as much of the truth as they can in the trash.

    Somethings, like 0bama’s house in Chicago, set in the neighborhood it’s in, the price he paid and the sorry state of so much housing around it, needs to be told, over and over. This crew of kleptomaniac Democrats and their Establishment Republican friends need to go.

    Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.

    By the way: notice the increase in gun sales on Black Friday. People are voting with their feet and wallets: walk to the gun counter, buy a gun.

When the puppet’s mouth moves, it’s not him we’re hearing.

And coming next, the Ministry of Truth.

Within the next weeks or two we’ll see the initial anti-Newt smears. Not the outcries already begun from GOP squishes and anyone else with a power stake in big government, but the really nasty stuff.

Since he’s already such a known quantity and there is unlikely to be any dirt or ‘baggage’ that hasn’t already been trotted out against him ad nauseum, I predict they’ll resurrect some old secondary or tertiary level rumors and innuendo from his days as Speaker, currently long forgotten but about to be dredged up and flung like monkey sh*t to see what might stick in the media.

Wikipedia lists 3 other major contributors to Thimk Progress.
Peter Lewis – Billionaire, inherited Progressive Ins from dad
Steve Bing – inherited $600M from dad and has played in Hollywood since dropping out of Stanford.
Herb Sandler – sold Golden West Financial to Wachovia Bank in 2006 and according Wikipedia was a major factor in Wachovia’s failure.

OMG! I’m “Blog of the Day” and I have nothing to wear!!

Thanks, Prof!

The GOP has proven that they don’t know what to do with power once they get it. Well, they do actually: they use their power to get even with some other Good Ol’ Boy Republican who slighted them at the club.

We would do well to demand a bit of idealism and core principles out of the GOP. Unfortunately, no ideal looks better to the populace than “free stuff!” and for such a mess of pottage have we traded our Republic.

The Dems know it and have bought into it 100%. It’s a bit harder to get the GOP to find, much less adopt any shining ideal that trumps “free stuff” and they won’t be able to until the money runs out.

“Moderate Mitt” ain’t gonna cut it.
