Michele Bachmann's Dangerous Lies

It’s way past time for Michele Bachmann to be ridiculed into the obscurity she so richly deserves. Nothing could be more irresponsible – indeed, pernicious – than her routine peddling of the lie that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that "if he has a nuclear weapon he will use it to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. He will use it against the United States of America." (This is far from her only venture into idiocy.)

Iran has said that it is not developing a nuclear weapon, and quarterly inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency support this claim. Moreover, two National Intelligence Estimates, compiled in 2007 and 2011 by America’s dozen and a half intelligence agencies, say Iran stopped work on a nuclear weapon in 2003. Finally, according to Wikipedia:

On ideological grounds, a public and categorical religious decree (fatwa) against the development, production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons has been issued by the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic Ali Khamenei along with other clerics, while it is supported by others in the religious establishment.

(As president Ahmadinejad has no authority over Iran’s military.)

Bachmann of course has zero chance of getting the Republican presidential nomination, but her repetition of this vicious lie could be effective in scaring the American people into supporting the other forces drumming up support for war against Iran. These include the neoconservatives, Israel, and the Israel lobby.

Bachmann should be challenged on this matter at every opportunity. It is disgraceful that she was allowed to get away with her reckless statement at the debate the other night. But who’s surprised? Wolf Blitzer, the Heritage Foundation, and the American Enterprise Institute would all love to see a war with Iran.

    Thank you wholeheartedly for your observations on candidate Bachmann. As a Minnesotan, I am embarrassed by her dangerous ignorance and the fact that "we" are responsible for putting her out there (even though I certainly did not vote for her). As an American, I am disgusted that such a hate and fear mongering person still has 4% support in her party (or about 2% of voters).

  2. as an observer from Kanada I hope you do not come down too hard on Michelle - she is hot - the subject of at least my fanatasy ( with Sarah Palin in the mix as well). Sure she is bat shit carzy but not an adulterous colostomy bag like Newt or a flipflopping Mitt. Since we are on the subject any chance of Kucinich becoming Dr. Paul's running mate - Peace

  3. yeah, dont feel too bad though, it seems we havent actually voted anyone into office lately... those black-box machines do all the electin for US now...some more "american way" brought to US by the traitors in control of this place.

    Peace, truth, justice and prosperity, in-spite of them.

  4. ummm Kanada, that would only happen in America. We here live in amerika see the above back at ya.

  5. We have exterminated the property owners in Russia. We are going to do the same thing in Europe and America.”
    (The Jew, December 1925, Zinobit)

    The world revolution which we will experience will be exclusively our affair and will rest in our hands. This revolution will tighten the Jewish domination over all other people.”
    - Le Peuple Juif, February 8, 1919.

    The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.”
    (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 143-144).

  6. She's obviously bonkers.

    Also see her slurping down a great big juicy long hot one full of spicy meat:

    Michele Bachmann Enjoys Leading Iowa Pack, Foot-Long Corn Dog

    Today, Iowa is (kind of) important. At the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Republican presidential hopefuls are jockeying for a momentum boost in the Ames Straw Poll, which is an early test of organizational mettle going into the Iowa caucuses in the winter. It's an opportunity for candidates to get heckled, eat fried food, and laugh at Ron Paul. This year, the top three candidates are likely to be Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and Tim Pawlenty, but yesterday, only one candidate displayed the guts to swallow the competition.

    Michele Bachmann shows us what she's made of, via Toby Harnden at the Telegraph

    Toby Harnden of the Telegraph snapped this photo of Bachmann eating a "foot-long corn dog—a chicken and beef sausage in deep fried batter." After an application of mustard (no ketchup? seems socialist to us) "she chomped into it with gusto." Perhaps Tina Brown and Newsweek should have waited another week for a photo more befitting of Bachmann's "intensity," because this is the face of someone who has peered into the chasm of the Oracle at Delphi and is brimming with visions (delirious, meaty visions) of America's bright future.

    Stay tuned for Bachmann's new campaign slogan: "Slap Some French's On The Deficit, And I Will Make It Disappear." Your move, Palin.

  7. Americans should be "ASHAMED of Thenselves" for proving to themselvs that what said all along through out the centuries with their Yiddish Term "GOYISHE KUP" is in fact true. Translated into English it means, that the "CATTLE are STUPID". The Americans should write a song to replace "I am Proud to be an American" to a new song saying "I am ashamed to be an American Goyishe Kup" or "Stupid American Cattle" where we let the Jews Herd us "STUPID AMERICAN CATTLE" to Hate and Fight the Evil Khazar Jews Wars.

    The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 39-40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in1970's are my student adviser's words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term "‘goyishe kup,’" meaning that the "Non-Jews are Stupid"

    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of "GOYISHE KUP" means that the "Cattle are STUPID"..

    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend's father's butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , goats or sheep that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the begining of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to "beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink" so as to sell them to the "GOYISHE KUP" as milk producing cows.

    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old "non milk producing cows" from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.

    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the "GOYISHE KUP" are indeed" Stupid" as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Militaryand Civilian authorities. The the Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam is still alive and well and been put to good use in putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. yeh I agree that the Non-Jews are indeed "GOYISHE KUP" or "STUPID CATTLE"!
