World Wrestling Entertainment - AKA Linda McMahon - Chewing People Up and Spitting Them Out For Decades! What Makes You Think You're Any Different?

In case you missed it, there is a new You Tube commercial in Connecticut's US Senate race for the Republican nomination, produced by the Rob Simmons campaign, targeting his opponent, Linda McMahon, CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment until she temporarily stepped aside to run her campaign.

After you watch it, I have a question for you.

World Wrestling Entertainment, The WWE, - better known as the McMahon family - is charged in many places far and wide with making hundreds of millions of dollars from the sacrifices, blood, and in some cases deaths of its employees, as shown in the video above.

Linda McMahon also was known as a big donor to Democratic candidates and causes until last year when she got into the Senate race, as a Republican, and ponied up more than $30,000 in one shot to the national Republican Senate committee so she could say she gives equally to both parties.

Now McMahon is handing out thousands of dollars in relatively small amounts to Republican Town Committees, claiming her political welfare payments are intended to help elect local Republican candidates.

Well, the municipal elections actually were LAST year, and her money usually came too late to help. The next municipal elections are in 2011, a year after the vote for a new US Senator and we'll just have to wait and see if Ms. McMahon will be shelling out money to local town committees for that election.

But even though I believe these $250 and $500 donations make the point that she thinks the local Republicans can be bought, and bought cheaply at that, some people are lapping up the money like a thirsty dog at the water dish. Some are even turning on Simmons, forgetting everything he did for them in years past and stabbing him in the back, presumably in hopes of getting a permanent spot on the McMahon welfare line.

I find this insulting. In my community McMahon donated $500 - last month - which comes to about thirty-three cents per registered Republican, or nearly fifteen dollars per member of the Republican Town Committee - if in fact wealth distribution was her intent.

In years past when I was a reporter covering the police beat in Hartford I often worked with the vice squad. Checking with some people who still have a working knowledge these matters, I was informed that in certain red light districts fifteen dollars will get you a wink and a nod from a streetwalker, but not much more. Which pretty much tells you what Linda McMahon thinks of my community and the Republicans who live here.

That then raises this question. Given what has happened to other, far better paid WWE employees in the past, what makes the people who are kissing up to McMahon think they will be treated any better if she can really buy this election? History repeats folks. And history in this case reflects a lot of people being crippled or dying after working for the McMahon's.

From that perspective, history doesn't look very good. But hey, at least the wrestlers got to live their fantasy lives for a few years before they died young, leaving children, families and debts. They did, didn't they? Maybe?

So maybe the people who are sooooo happy that McMahon tossed them a few bucks, like alms to a beggar, will have a few fantasy moments of their own before their political careers come crashing down to a premature, untimely end. Hope springs eternal.

Unhappy With "Health Care Reform?" Thank Linda McMahon!

Seriously, are you unhappy with Congress passing this debacle called Universal Health Care and Obama gleefully signing a law that fundamentally changes the United States of America?

If you are, you can thank Linda McMahon, the alleged "Republican" now running for the GOP nomination in Connecticut to replace Chris Dodd as US Senator!

I bet that right now you're saying Why, how can that be? She's a Republican, isn't she? She's a successful businesswoman even if she does deal in gratuitous violence, soft porn, and debasement of women and the handicapped! How could she possibly be linked in any way, however tenuous, to passage of the Democrats' bill to take over America's medical insurance industry?

Simple. Money. That's what she pursues, that's what she has tons of and that is what she uses to get her way, both in business and in politics. And that is why she is linked to passage of the medical insurance takeover legislation.

McMahon sends her campaign staffers out to Republican Town Committees around the state where they regurgitate the mantra that she donates equally to both political parties as part of "the cost of doing business." I personally heard this from a McMahon staffer a couple of months ago.

But is this mantra true? Well lets take a look at how her "equal donations" favored Democrats during election campaigns, as opposed to during off years when no one was running a federal race.

First, we should note that in Connecticut, where McMahon is running, the GOP lost its last Congressman in 2008 when moderate Republican Chris Shays was defeated in the 4th Congressional District by Democrat Jim Himes. Two years earlier Republican Rob Simmons lost to Democrat Joe Courtney in the 2nd District by 83 votes, and simultaneously Nancy Johnson, the long-time Representative from the 5th District was soundly defeated by Democrat Chris Murphy.

That means that the Connecticut Congressional delegation is totally Democrat. Connecticut has five districts, including the aforementioned 2nd, 4th and 5th, plus the 1st where Pelosi Puppet John Larson has ruled for decades, with ultra-liberal Democrat Rosa DeLauro representing the 3rd.

Every single one of these Democrats - five in all - voted for Obama's misnamed "health care reform," which coincidentally passed by five votes. Aren't all the independents and cross-over Republicans who voted for these guys proud of themselves now? Think about this for a moment; if Simmons, Johnson and Shays were still there, I wouldn't be writing this column because that bill would never have had a chance of passing.

So where does McMahon come in? Let's take a look at information I found on the McMahon for Senate website.

In 2006 when Republicans Nancy Johnson and Rob Simmons lost to Democrats who ultimately voted for the health care bill, McMahon gave a whopping $500 to Nancy Johnson, nothing to Simmons, and $1000 to Shays who won that year. But she gave Ten Thousand Dollars to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee which was waging all-out war against Connecticut's Republicans!

As noted, that year Simmons lost by 83 votes, and only Shays survived the Democrat onslaught that was funded in part by McMahon. She also gave two grand to Joe Lieberman, listing him as an independent although he is now safely ensconced back in the Democratic fold. McMahon actually donated as much to a Republican running in Massachusetts - $500 - as she gave to Nancy Johnson.

In 2007, an off year for national elections, she gave $1,000 to Shays, presumably for his 2008 race, but FIVE THOUSAND to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Two-Thousand Five Hundred to Rahm Emanuel's Our Common Values Political Action Committee.

In 2008 she gave Shays another grand and a measly five-hundred-dollars to the Republican National Committee. But she easily topped that total with an additional $2,300 to Rahm Emanuel, who was working to get Barack Obama nominated, then elected. Emanuel is now Obama's chief of staff and a major architect of a socialized American society.

As a reminder, 2008 was the year Shays lost to Himes, and GOP candidate David Cappiello got his head handed to him on a silver platter in Murphy's 5th District, despite a campaign visit from President Bush and a big fund-raiser at Henry Kissinger's estate in western Connecticut. That also was the year Connecticut went totally Democratic, which set up Sunday's travesty posing as a restructuring of America's health care system.

(Note, we still have the best health care in the world, and the "system" could have gone a long way toward being "fixed" if Congress had merely opened up inter-state bidding for health care policies.)

Now, McMahon was a big noise in Democratic donations going back to the 1990's, but in 2009, wonder of wonders, McMahon announced that she was running for the US Senate, as a REPUBLICAN!

To pave the way for her campaign, in April 2009, McMahon gave Connecticut's GOP State Central Committee $2,000, which certainly endeared her to the party leaders. (She later hired Cappiello as her campaign manager at an unheard of $300,000; and the wife of Connecticut's GOP state chairman to do her campaign communications at $125k!)

Then on August 4, 2009, just before the official announcement that she was running for the US Senate, McMahon made a donation to the National Republican Senatorial Committee for THIRTY-THOUSAND, FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!

That in turn suddenly transformed Linda McMahon from a Democratic donor to a Republican donor as well as a US Senate candidate! That one massive donation, that was nowhere to be seen when Republican candidates in Connecticut really could have used it, gives McMahon the wiggle room to make the claim that she donates to the GOP as much as or even more than to the Democrats!

On an effectiveness scale, however, the Democrats come out way, way ahead. Her donation history, as far as the GOP is concerned, is akin to arriving at a house fire after the building is destroyed and spraying water on the cold embers for a few hours.

So there you have it. From the WWE to McMahon's pocket, to the Democratic PACs and candidates, to the US House of Representatives, to the just-passed health care travesty. Thank you Linda McMahon, may we please have another?

Oh wait, there is "another!" The Second Amendment! Are you an NRA supporter? Does the right to keep and bear arms mean something to you? Then take a look at how Connecticut's Democratic delegation, funded to a large degree by Linda McMahon, fares on the NRA ratings.

District 1: JOHN LARSON - F; District 2: JOE COURTNEY - D+; District 3: ROSA DeLAURO - F; District 4: JIM HIMES - ?; District 5; CHRIS MURPHY - D. Not a single grade over D+, and one question mark, which means the candidate "refused to answer the NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights." The section in quotes came straight from the NRA website.

To date, Linda McMahon has spent more than $6 million of her own money to buy the GOP nomination, with another reporting period ending soon. That has given her a temporary edge in the public opinion polls, but literally no movement against presumed Democratic nominee Richard Blumenthal.

I say temporary because now that she is the GOP front-runner, we can expect the media to take a much closer look at her, what she stands for, and whether she really is the best Republican candidate in Connecticut. Stay tuned.

Communism On Parade at the US Capitol. Casualties Irrelevant if Leaders Survive!

The Obama Administration is pulling out all stops to pass, by hook or by crook, its takeover of the American medical insurance industry - under the heading of "health care reform."

The tactics now being employed, which forced the whore-like position switch by Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich earlier today, include wholesale disregard for the dictates of the US Constitution, a model document that has served our country for more than two centuries. This includes the so-called Slaughter Rule named for Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y, (a New York Democrat, what a surprise) who wants House members to vote on a procedure that will enable the Senate to pass the bill, without the House actually voting on its provisions.

Slaughter's Dean-like Scream?
Thanks AP.

So much for the US Constitution which requires that the House and Senate both pass legislation before it goes to the president. Under the Slaughter Rule the house would "deem" the bill passed without actually voting on it. Find the word "deem" in the Constitution regarding passage of legislation, would you please?

It's easy to see that Obama never served in the military, never actually "served" anywhere that he didn't get a fat paycheck for his "service." He obviously doesn't care one whit about the troops serving under him, nor how they will fare under his dictates. I mean this guy doesn't even know that Marine Corps and Corpsmen are pronounced CORE, not CORPSE!

These tactics have aroused the anger of the American public to a level that I have never seen in my lifetime, and are certain to seal the ouster of dozens of Democrat Congressmen in the elections this fall. But it is obvious that the Obama Administration and the Congressional Democrat leadership - Nancy Pelosi in the House and Harry Reid in the Senate - could care less how many rank and file troops are killed off in the battle (figuratively speaking of course) as long as they get what they want.

Reid has already passed the thin ice threshold with voters in Nevada, and in fact is flailing around in frigid water as far as his re-election chances are concerned. Pelosi is hoping she can survive in her liberal California district and Obama is certain that the average American voter is so stupid that by 2012 when he is up for re-election we will have forgotten all about this. Which says far more about Obama than it does about the average American voter.

The Obama Administration's scorched earth tactics are reminiscent of communist attacks going all the way back to the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917. The Bolsheviks (communists) and numerous other political entities were united in overthrowing the autocracy run by the Romanov Czars. A major unifying factor was the Russian Army's estimated 8-10 million deaths in World War I fighting due to incompetent leadership.

But once the Czar was overthrown, the competing parties turned against each other and civil war broke out. Estimated deaths before the Bolshevik's ultimately prevailed? Another 10 million! But it wasn't an issue then because they got what they wanted.

Then we have Stalin murdering another 10 million Ukrainians in 1933 by sending the Soviet Army in to rob all their food at harvest time, causing starvation of Biblical proportions.

Then we have the Spanish Civil War where some 3,000 idealistic American communists went to Spain to fight on the side of their communist brethren and two-thirds of them became casualties - as usual due to inept leadership - but didn't achieve their stated goal.

Then we have World War II where the Russian Army was so poorly led and equipped that the communists suffered an estimated 24 million deaths with about 14 million occurring in the civilian population, including 1 million Jews, and the remainder in the military. That is 300 percent higher than German casualties in the same period.

In the Korean War the communist north and China combined lost an estimated six hundred thousand troops with about a quarter-million from the North Korean Army and the remainder from China. Another 1.5 million northern civilians were killed, in addition to nine hundred thousand civilians in the south when the North initially overran virtually the entire country.

In Vietnam, once again, the entirety of the the 70,000 Viet Cong guerrilla force was wiped out, and an estimated 1.5 million northern communist troops were killed, far in excess of the losses in the south. But as in Korea and Russia before that, the communist leaders hung on, regardless of the cost, as long as they got what they wanted in the end, and they personally weren't affected.

Has anyone else noticed that the Obama Administration and its propaganda arm, The American Terrorist Media, have stopped talking about casualties in the War on Terror now that a communist is in the White House? How did a communist get nominated anyway? Isn't communism illegal in the United States? If somehow it became politically acceptable, it certainly is time to make it illegal again, with accompanying punishment for its proponents.

We can start with Kucinich who claims he is now voting for a bill that he doesn't agree with - he said it doesn't go as far as he'd like but he will vote for it. He says that it should provide the groundwork "Hopefully for comprehensive health care reform." What a liar.

Even with Kucinich defecting, which isn't hard for someone like him, it is nowhere certain that this takeover of the medical insurance industry will succeed. No one even knows what is in this so-called bill, or even if there is one. And many people know it will not reduce costs, certainly not as much as they would come down if we could just shop across state lines for medical insurance like we do for homeowners and car insurance.

But Obama, Reid and Pelosi don't care what happens to their troops as long as they somehow hang on and they get what they want. What they want is total destruction of the United States of America as it now exists, and what is really funny is that they eventually will go down the tubes along with everyone else, even if they are successful.

Because while they think they are in charge they aren't. They are just the most visible of the "useful idiots," and once they are no longer useful, they will find themselves on the outside looking in too.

It would be a classic example of poetic justice if Pelosi, Reid and Obama were ousted by their superiors in the Comintern, and then had to face trial with the former legislators who lost their positions under these tools serving as the jury.

Yeah, I'd like to see that if this travesty passes. I'd like to see that anyway. I'll even volunteer for jury duty.
