Why Rick Perry's Moratorium Proposal for the EPA Is a Bad Idea


0 minute ago (7:27 PM)
This comment is pending approval and won't be displayed until it is approved.

Soft-on-cr­iminal-pol­luters, Bachmann-P­erry want to take the EPA cops off the beat because their paymaster puppeteers the Killer Koch Brothers (killed Danielle Dawn Smalley, google it) got fined $55,000,00­0 federal CRIMINAL fines for polluting six American states air, water and soil. Let's see, they are ORGANIZED and convicted of CRIME, and even David Koch's own twin brother Bill called Koch Industries "ORGANIZED CRIME" on CBS TV. (Google CBS Koch Organized Crime.)

So Bachmann is on her knees to the Koch Brothers, and Rick Perry is on his knees to Koch Industries­. So they want to defnd the federal cops who once tried to put the Koch Brothers in prison for life until Bush's Attorney General Ashcroft dropped the charges and buried the case.

Bachmann's Creation Science is Messiah Moonism ANTI-Christianity

Bachmann's Creation Science is Messiah Moonism ANTI-Christianity

Sun Myung Moon anointed himself the new messiah because (Moon says) Jesus screwed up the Messiah assignment by not getting married.

Michele Bachmann is an Intelligent Design creation science advocate, and thereby a Moonist anti-christian. Has Backmann EVER repudiated the fake messiah? Will she if cornered? The owner of the Washington Times and UPI has a powerful hold on conservanazis.

In order to push the Moon theology onto unfinished minds of school kids, the Moon followers at HUDSON INSTITUTE founded another front organization named DISCOVERY INSTITUTE. Discovery Institute was tasked with inserting Moonist theology disguised as science into public schools in gullible Red State districts.

In order to accept the Moonist theology one must reject evolution science and accept old testament fiat creation of a young Earth less than 10,000 years old. Moonist need to destroy science which disagrees with them, and multi-billionaire Sun Myung Moon has spent billions of dollars over decades stealthily subsidizing media and publishing empires to accomplish that, aligning himself with other anti-science fraudsters like Global Warming deniers.

In fact, Hudson Institute (which created Discovery Institute to conduct anti-science propaganda) sits in the very same office suite where Sun Myung Moon operated Paragon House publishing company which gave office space and $100,000 salary stipend to S. Fred Singer who founded his SEPPtic tank for global warming fraud operations in those exact same offices.

Michele Bachmann denies benefiting from government aid

Michele Bachmann denies benefiting from government aid

The_Liann at 7:37 PM June 26, 2011How can she deny what she already admitted to?

Bachmann got $30 tax-free SOCIALIST cash from Minnisota for every day that she had state supplied teen babysitters in her home -- she bragged about these 23 Foster Kids at the debate. How can she deny the SOCIALIST childcare and the $900 each Foster Child contributed to paying off her mortgage?

She already admitted in indelible ink on her tax returns to getting payoff of a SOCIALIST-funded subsidized family farm that came into her bank account. How can she deny that now?

How can she deny that $30,000 worth of SOCIALIST funds trained her hubby's clinic staff to enable them to charge higher prices and see more patients?

How can she deny getting a bushel basket of $100 bills every month from the SOCIALIST funded congress salary of $174,000.00/month, or deny getting taxpayer-funded congressional cadillac pension plan and taxpayer-funded congressional cadillac-Healthcare insurance?

How can she deny she got votes from constituents by bringing home the PORK, literally begging for pork subsidy money. How can she deny that she benefits from campaign donations by big agribusiness by opposing the ending of farm subsidies?

How can she deny that she gets energy money donations from Big Oil where she quid-pro-quo keeps giving them SOCIALIST checks as tax-cheat deductions?


Bachmann's stepsister, Helen LaFave of Minneapolis, is a lesbian.

Bachmann's stepsister opposes her effort
Lesbian disputes senator's work to ban gay marriage


No other state lawmaker has been more outspoken against gay marriage than Sen. Michele Bachmann, who for more than two years has led the effort at the Capitol to reserve the institution for heterosexual couples.

So when the Senate Judiciary Committee heard the Stillwater Republican's bill proposing a constitutional amendment against gay marriage Tuesday, it was perhaps no surprise that some of her family members were in the audience. But one surprise was where one of them was sitting — alongside fellow opponents of the ban.

Bachmann's stepsister, Helen LaFave of Minneapolis, is a lesbian. She did not testify at the hearing, in which senators rejected Bachmann's measure, but she said afterward that she felt it important to be there.

Bachmann said the nine siblings and stepsiblings united by their parents' marriage are split on the issue. "The vote is 6-3 in our family," she said.

Bachmann says her family did not benefit from U.S. assistance for farm, clinic

Published: Sunday, Jun. 26, 2011 - 1:00 am

That lady is insane. Never mind that her main claim to bragging rights is 23 Foster Children "which she raised" at SOCIALIST tax-exempt $30 per day per child from Minnisota taxpayers, which is $900 per month per child for older kids who were unpaid babysitters for her biological children. (How much does childcare cost parents of 5 children with both parents out working all day, provided as a freebie by the taxpayers?) Nevermind that she already reported in indelible ink getting income from the SOCIALIST subsidized farm. Nevermind that she accepts Cadillac-Healthcare insurance plan from the SOCIALIST Congress who also at SOCIALIST taxpayer expense gives her a bushel basket of hundred dollar bills wages every month, $174,000.00 each month. Nevermind that she begged for SOCIALIST dollars for SOCIALIST Farm Subsidy for PORK farmers (of which her collective-owned farm raises pork and corn, both subsidized SOCIALIST supported products). Nevermind that she lied to the nation about how much investment she put into those 23 Foster Kids at the GOP debate, when she testified in front of Congress that she only had some of them for a two week sleepover, and the longest were three years -- not exactly "raised up" -- and they all were teenagers when they arrived -- not exactly "raised up" by her. Nevermind all that.

This freakshow believes that the world is less than 10,000 years old, and that life begins at conception instead of it began well over a billion years ago and keeps on rolling. That by itself is certifiable proof of insanity. She's a lawyer, but she doesn't understand that the law gives specific meanings to words, and murder is never appropriate to the medical act of abortion -- the word does not apply and using it is fraud for the intent to deceive others to give  up or usurp lawful Constitutional rights of others.

Theocratic Millionaire Welfare Queen Blowhard Bachmann

Bachmann doubts evolution, wants intelligent design in schools

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has once again expressed doubts about the validity of evolution, and her support for introducing creationism, also known as Intelligent Design, into the public school science classroom.

Friday, speaking at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, Bachmann reiterated her suspicions about evolution and her support for evolution. This is not the first time Bachmann has made such claims.

In 2006, Bachmann claimed “there is a controversy among scientists about whether evolution is a fact… hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel prizes, believe in intelligent design.”

Needless to say, for the vast majority of educated individuals, Bachmann's claim about a scientific controversy is false to the point of being ludicrous. Evolution is accepted science, and the foundation of modern biology. The only real controversy about evolution is religious. The theory makes certain religious claims, like the fundamentalist Christian claim that the earth is only 6,000 years old, simply untenable.

Perhaps more disturbing than Bachmann's doubt concerning the validity of evolution and her support for intelligent design, is the fact that many Republicans support her position, a position that critics find to be indicative of a severe intellectual disconnect with reality.

For many, Bachmann and her fellow Republicans' disdain for science is appalling. For many to teach intelligent design side by side with evolution in a science classroom is nothing short of child abuse, and a clear attempt at religious indoctrination.

Bachmann, speaking to reporters in New Orleans following her speech to the Republican Leadership Conference, made the following statement:

"I support intelligent design. What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide. I don't think it's a good idea for government to come down on one side of scientific issue or another, when there is reasonable doubt on both sides."

Bachmann seems to be confused. There are some things students don't get to decide. Many things are not up for debate: 2 +2= 4; the earth is not flat, but shaped like a globe; and evolution is the foundation of biology, providing a coherent and unifying explanation for the history and diversity of life on Earth.
BLOWHARD Bachmann supports self-styled Messiah (replacement Christ because Jesus wasn't good enough) SUN MYUNG MOON's efforts to insinuate Creationism into public schools (where Blowhard Bachmann's kids do not go, they go to private schools). The Moonie front concealing his puppet-mastering "Hudson Institute" created another spin-off front operation called "Discovery Institute" (google this history) to support Moon's plans to overthrow the US Constitution and substitute a religious state with him and his family at top. INTELLIGENT DESIGN is the name of the antichristian propaganda intended to confuse vulnerable youths that science should not be trusted to explain the development of life on Earth. Why Bachmann supports the overthrow of the United States or the programs of Sun Myung Moon, and the insertion of unwanted and unnecessary religious propaganda in public schools needs to be explained and the public and press needs to demand that she explain herself.

Michele Bachmann, others raise millions for political campaigns with ‘money blurts’


In the ever-evolving world of campaign fundraising, some politicians have stumbled on yet another way to bring in buckets of cash. Let’s call it the “money blurt.”

Here’s how it works: An up-and-coming politician blurts out something incendiary, provocative or otherwise controversial. The remark bounces around the blogs and talk shows and becomes a sensation.

And in the midst of it all, the politician’s fundraisers are manning the phones and raking in the donations.
Consider Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the tea party favorite and newly minted presidential candidate, who has made a specialty of raising money in the wake of bold and well-placed remarks. Shortly after accusing President Obama of having “anti-American views” during one cable-news appearance, for example, Bachmann took in nearly $1 million.

The use of money blurts could have a significant impact on the strength of some candidates’ fundraising efforts, which will come into focus next month with the release of fresh disclosure forms for GOP presidential campaigns. Bachmann aides have said she received a major boost with her appearance at a Republican debate in New Hampshire, though they did not release numbers.

The phenomenon marks another phase in the quest for money in politics, fueled by the eternal hum of the Internet, social media and 24-hour cable news. The tactic could prove especially valuable for insurgent candidates such as Bachmann who are likely to rely heavily on smaller donations for their 2012 campaigns.
“It’s a great way to attract a very high volume of small donors and drive excitement,” said Ron Bonjean, a GOP consultant and co-founder of Singer Bonjean Strategies. “If you’re in the money game and you say something controversial, you’ll have support from a very energetic core.”

The money blurt — spontaneous or not — is a close cousin to a technique called the “money bomb,” in which a campaign or its supporters designate a specific day or time period to raise a vast amount of cash and generate publicity. The best-known practitioner is libertarian favorite Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), whose followers have used money bombs to raise as much as $6 million at a time for his presidential campaigns.
As for money blurts, perhaps the most famous example came in September 2009, when back-bench House Republican Joe Wilson (S.C.) yelled “You lie!” during an Obama address to Congress.

Within a week of the outburst, supporters had given more than $2 million to the little-known congressman, urged on by conservative bloggers and Wilson’s own campaign. His Democratic challenger cited Wilson’s remark in his own fundraising, prompting a sudden campaign arms race.

“Our office has been overwhelmed with phone calls, letters and contributions,” Wilson said several days after the incident.

Former congressman Alan Grayson, a liberal firebrand from Florida, attracted GOP condemnation in 2009 after he said on the House floor that the Republican health-care plan amounted to “Die quickly.” He quickly raised nearly $1 million.


Bachmann Takes 'Money Blurts' to New Heights

Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is raising a considerable amount of political cash with a few well-chosen words known as a "money blurt," reports The Washington Post.

The Post defines a "money blurt" as an "incendiary, provocative or otherwise controversial" remark by a politician that "bounces around the blogs and talk shows and becomes a sensation."

That, in turn, prompts supporters to start donating money.

According to the Post, Bachmann raked in nearly $1 million after appearing on a cable news show and accusing President Barack Obama of having “anti-American views." She also generated a major cash infusion after her appearance last Monday at the GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire.

“It’s a great way to attract a very high volume of small donors and drive excitement,” GOP consultant Ron Bonjean told the Post. “If you’re in the money game and you say something controversial, you’ll have support from a very energetic core.”

Michelle Bachmann Millionaire Socialist


Michele Bachmann has availed herself of $30,000 SOCIALIST Medicare dollars through her husband's medical office, $30 per day ($900/month) SOCIALIST fosterkids dollars per kid x 23 kids, and more than a quarter-million SOCIALIST FARM SUBSIDY dollars. Oh, and she gets cadillac SOCIALIST healthcare plan from the Congress and a fat $140,000/yr SOCIALIST paycheck from congress. When you add it all together she is a millionaire welfare queen, who gets free babysitters for her own private school kids from the temp public school foster kids. (How much would daycare cost an absentee mom and dad with five kids they don't see most of the time?)

Bachmann’s clinic takes in thousands from “socialized medicine”

By Andy Birkey | 05.17.10 | 2:00 pm

Bachmann and Associates, Inc., a Christian mental health clinic founded and run by Rep. Michele Bachmann’s husband, has been taking money from Minnesota’s coffers since it was founded in 2003. It’s the latest example of a disjuncture in Bachmann’s rhetoric: the Sixth District Republican has seen her star rise in Tea Party circles for fiery rhetoric opposing government “handouts” and “socialized medicine,” while, again, she’s found to be directly benefiting from government funds. Since 2007, the clinic, run by Marcus Bachmann, has taken in nearly $30,000.
In recent months, Rep. Bachmann has sharply criticized efforts by Democrats to offer a “public option” or a public health insurance plan, calling such ideas “socialized medicine.”
In November 2009, as she was gearing up for her House Call tea party to oppose health care reform, she said, “This is the most effective way we have to kill socialized medicine and to do it this week.”
She added, “Nothing is more effective at reaching a congressman than having a citizen come to Washington, D.C. – not asking for a handout, not asking for tax money, not asking to take some liberty away from somebody else, but just asking for freedom.”
But Minnesota has it’s own version of “socialized medicine” for low-income families, called Medical Assistance, and Bachmann’s family business actively sought to gain access to these taxpayer funds.
According to data obtained by the Minnesota Independent, Bachmann and Associates, Inc., opened in the summer of 2003 and applied for a Rule 29 license, which was approved in the fall of 2003. Minnesota Department of Human Services’ application materials (pdf) for Rule 29 certification describe the program as one that “establishes standards for community mental health centers and clinics in Minnesota” and “is required for certain categories of Medical Assistance payments.”
Entering into the program is voluntary: not all mental health clinics in Minnesota apply for Rule 29 certification. In addition to the Rule 29 program, Bachmann and Associates also applied for and was accepted into the Rule 31 program, which is similar to the Rule 29 except it also covers payments for chemical dependency treatment.
Information from the state’s Transparency and Accountability Project (TAP) shows the Bachmann’s earning $27,564 in state payments since 2007. The clinic likely received more, since TAP’s online data only records payouts given since 2007.
According to the transparency project, Bachmann and Associates took $1,419 in public money in 2007, $13,140 in 2008, $12,493 in 2009 and $512 so far in 2010.
Jim Duffett of the Campaign for Better Health Care called Bachmann’s words and actions hypocritical.
“Yes, she is taking money from government programs, which she calls ‘socialism,’ and at the same time taking taxpayers money to help cover the clinic’s health care costs,” he said. Her family business is taking in taxpayer money, he said, “and at the same time demanding that taxes be cut.”
“Rep. Bachmann’s opposition to public health coverage seems quite selective,” added Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, a health care consumers group. “When it helps her pocketbook she is for it. When it enables working families to attain affordable health coverage, she’s against it.”
He added, “This double standard harms working families in Minnesota and across the nation.”
While some groups are critical of Bachmann, Pete Sepp of the National Taxpayers Union, a conservative group that advocates lower taxes, said that some private insurance companies may require state certification and that may be the reason the clinic applied for Rule 29.
“I’m not sure how much of this stuff is voluntary for a clinic to follow, at least insofar as wanting to do significant business with private insurers versus accepting only private clients who pay out-of-pocket,” he said.
He also said the the current policies present a conundrum for business owners advocating for limited government.
“This type of funding has always presented a policy dilemma for limited-government supporters,” he said. “Is it best to campaign for rolling back the funding altogether so it never gets to government’s coffers in the first place, or, knowing the funding will keep flowing to government’s coffers anyway, try to make sure that the money is administered by qualified private groups rather than under-qualified agencies?”
“With the latter, there’s always the danger that the private groups will become dependent on the government funds. With the former, there’s the danger that if the funding isn’t repealed, it will keep going to government agencies that will waste the money,” he said. “I don’t know where Rep. Bachmann stands on that question, but it’s the one worth asking.”
Bachmann’s office did not respond to the Minnesota Independent’s request for comment.
The mental health clinic’s Medical Assistance funding isn’t the first instance when Bachmann, whose anti-socialist views are highlighted in the new documentary Socialism: A Biblical Response, has taken money from the government. According to a 2007 report, Bachmann’s family received more than $250,000 in farm subsidies, mostly for dairy and corn, over the last decade.

Michele Bachmann, gay-curing theocrat

The surprisingly "serious" presidential candidate is even more extreme than she appears

Michelle Goldberg's Daily Beast/Newsweek piece on Michele Bachmann's history and faith -- a strain of born-againism associated with crackpot history, opposition to science, and virulent intolerance of gays and lesbians -- shows precisely how out-there Bachmann is, even though the congresswoman these days pretends to be run-of-the-mill hard-right-winger. (Yes, her current extremism represents a moderation of her former incarnation.)

The piece begins with a wonderful recounting of the time she accused lesbians of kidnapping her and holding her hostage in a bathroom, because some ladies were talking to her. Minnesotans may know much of this already, but people familiar with Bachmann only from liberal blogs or cable news are missing the evangelical extremism that informs her every public statement. She talks like Ron Paul now, but she's Pat Robertson at heart. Her spiritual influences and advisors explicitly advocate theocracy and are obviously responsible for her garbled and twisted impression of American history.

A couple of newsy bits: Her 23 foster kids, a topic she mentions all the time? She doesn't ever go into detail about how many she has or had at any time, or for how long she fostered them:
Bachmann often says she has "raised" 23 foster children. That may be a bit of a stretch. According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Bachmann's license, which she had for 7 1/2 years, allowed her to care for up to three children at a time. According to Kris Harvieux, a former senior social worker in the foster-care system in Bachmann's county, some placements were almost certainly short term. "Some of them you have for a week. Some of them you have for three years, some you have for six months," says Harvieux, who also served as a foster parent herself. "She makes it sound like she got them at birth and raised them to adulthood, but that's not true."
(However many she has at a time, foster kids are a good way to make some tax-free cash from the Minnesota government, and they're not even Bachmann's sole source of free government cash.)
It's likely that her husband's clinic is at least in part dedicated to "curing" gay people:
Both she and her husband, by all accounts her most trusted political adviser, believe that homosexuality can be cured. Speaking to a Christian radio station about gay teenagers last year, Marcus, who treats gay people in his counseling practice, said, "Barbarians need to be educated. They need to be disciplined, and just because someone feels this or thinks this, doesn't mean that we're supposed to go down that road."
This is the beyond-the-pale stuff that makes Bachmann so, so much worse than Sarah Palin, to whom she is regularly compared.

Bachmann has also lied about her own family's support for her anti-gay activism. Members of her extended family have written letters to Minnesota papers criticizing her, without identifying themselves as being related to her.

She is, really, a pretty awful piece of work.

Bachmann's Unrivaled Extremism

Rep. Michele Bachmann's impressive performance at Monday's debate has catapulted her near the front of the GOP pack, but the radical roots of her ideology remain poorly understood. The Daily Beast’s Michelle Goldberg reports.

After graduating from Coburn in 1986, Bachmann went on to get a degree in tax law from William and Mary School of Law in Virginia, while her husband studied psychology and counseling at Regent University, the school founded by Pat Robertson. His thesis was about the harmful effects of day care on children. "[T]he best interests of the public would be served if one parent did not work outside of the home unless it was absolutely essential," he wrote.

Nevertheless, when Bachmann's children were small, she worked at the IRS while Marcus got his Christian counseling business up and running. Finally, in 1992, she said, "I realized my lifelong dream, which was to be a full-time mother of children at home." That same year, she received her foster care license.

Bachmann often says she has "raised" 23 foster children. That may be a bit of a stretch. According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Bachmann's license, which she had for 7 1/2 years, allowed her to care for up to three children at a time. According to Kris Harvieux, a former senior social worker in the foster care system in Bachmann's county, some placements were almost certainly short term. "Some of them you have for a week. Some of them you have for three years, some you have for six months," says Harvieux, who also served as a foster parent herself. "She makes it sound like she got them at birth and raised them to adulthood, but that's not true." ...

Michele Bachmann’s Baby Farm

Michele Bachmann’s Baby Farm

Crazy Crazy Crazy - WonketteSure, you knew Michele Bachmann was a crazy pope-hating Jesus Freak and Republican candidate for Minnesota’s 6th district who’s likely to win because all those people are crazy down there, but did you know she basically runs a baby farm?

A Wonkette operative says Bachmann has five kids of her own and raised an astonishing 23 foster kids. A nice person would say, “Oh, that’s a nice thing.” But our cold-hearted operative notes that Minnesota pays $30 a day, tax free, per foster kid.

“So if Bachmann has fostered 23 children, let’s say for an average of five years, that would come out to a non-taxable $1,259,250,” the Wonk-Op writes. “No wonder she’s anti-abortion. Children are a cash crop for her.”

Anti-socialist Bachmann got $250K in federal farm subsidies - On Congress: Anti-socialist Bachmann got $250K in federal farm subsidies

December 22, 2009

Anti-socialist Bachmann got $250K in federal farm subsidies

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) — so fond of accusing the Obama administration of foisting socialism on an unwilling America — has apparently been the recipient of about a quarter of million bucks in government handouts.
Liberal site Truthdig links to an Environmental Working Group analysis of federal agricultural subsidies and found that the Bachmann family farm, managed by her father-in-law until his recent death, received $251,000 in farm payments between 1995 and 2006.
Bachmann’s financial disclosure forms indicate her stake in the Wisconsin farm is worth up to $250,000. Her income from the farm has grown from $2,000 a year a few years back to as much as $50,000 for 2008.
Truthdig calls her a "Welfare Queen":
Bachmann's family farm received $251,973 in federal subsidies between 1995 and 2006. The farm had been managed by Bachmann's recently deceased father-in-law and took in roughly $20,000 in 2006 and $28,000 in 2005, with the bulk of the subsidies going to dairy and corn. Both dairy and corn are heavily subsidized — or "socialized" — businesses in America (in 2005 alone, Washington spent $4.8 billion propping up corn prices) and are subject to strict government price controls.
Bachmann isn't alone in her selective socialism: EWG found that the top four districts receiving the largest ag payments are represented by conservative Republicans.
1. 3rd district of Nebraska (Rep. Adrian Smith - Republican) - $1,736,923,011 in subsidies go to 51,702 recipients.

2. 1st district of Kansas (Rep. Jerry Moran - Republican) - $1,315,979,151 in subsidies go to 75,802 recipients.

3. 4th district of Iowa (Rep. Tom Latham - Republican) - $1,288,622,912 in subsidies go to 35,696 recipients.

4. 9th district of Texas (Rep. Randy Neugebauer - Republican) - $1,227,192,312 in subsidies go to 21,290 recipients.
