Why Does Newt Gingrich Hate Hard Working Americans?

Because Newt Gingrich is an immoral whore living off campaign donations made by the wealthy corporations.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich found himself in a bit of a log-jam with his inner-conservative Monday night.

Appearing on a conservative talk radio program, Gingrich praised the Clinton-era North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), taking the decidedly internationalist view that it was positive because it created jobs in Mexico.

Whether the economy or even the job market overall benefited from the agreement has been the subject of intense debate ever since, but most economists agree that the trade agreement has resulted in the loss of many low-skill jobs to Mexico.

But Gingrich’s position on the arrangement, which succeeded in dramatically expanding the value of trade between the US, Canada and Mexico, isn’t common among Republicans, today or in the lead-up to the agreement’s passage.

Then, he was instrumental to the Clinton administration in helping bring Republicans around to supporting the plan. Gingrich was also a supporter of the World Trade Organization and has been consistent in advocating for the globalization of markets.

Trans Maryland and Allies Organize March 15th Education Rally in Washington DC to Demand HB 235 Fully Protect Transsexual & Transgender Marylanders

WHAT: The Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Bill (HB 235) proposal in Maryland is supposed to protect people from discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression; however, a compromise has been made to remove protections against discrimination in public accommodations for transsexual and transgender (TS/TG) Marylanders, and is about to be sent to the committee for a vote in its tainted format. Maryland State Senator Rich Madaleno has made a call to amend HB235 to put public accommodations protections back in, yet gay and lesbian leadership via Equality Maryland and elected officials, all who are not TS/TG, have decided to edit out lifesaving protections, outraging many TS/TG community members who are being misrepresented, censored, shut out of the decision making process and are unwilling to accept a bill that will create second class citizenship and legalize discrimination.
The education rally will appropriately be on Maryland Ave and 1st Street, right next to The Supreme Court

WHEN: March 15th 7:00pm-8:00pm

WHERE: On the North West corner of 1st Avenue & Maryland Ave, Washington D.C., DC 20002

Jenna Fischetti, Media Director for Trans Maryland, explains, “Trans Maryland originated in 2009 to educate the citizens of Maryland, legislative leaders and policy makers as to the needs of Maryland’s transsexual and transgender community. In the aftermath of HB 235 being compromised, collective members of our community have now joined together to oppose Equality Maryland’s misrepresentation of Maryland’s transsexual and transgender communities best interests. Transsexual and transgender people should represent themselves, not gay and lesbian organizations. We are taking back our voice.”

Ashley Love, a national TS/TG media advocate, explains why this is more than a Maryland state issue: “Though I live in New York, I will join the many people from around the country that will be at Trans Maryland’s education rally in Washington D.C. this Tuesday because the threat of this compromised bill passing without needed protections for transsexual and transgender people could set a dangerous precedent that other states could follow in denying basic human rights to oppressed minorities simply because they were born with a birth challenge or medical condition.”

Donna S Plamondon, a Trans Maryland organizer, recently testified at the Public Hearing on the Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Bill in Annapolis on March 9th. Today she says, “Many of Maryland’s transgender, transsexual and intersex communities oppose any legislation being introduced without consulting the affected community. I hope to see HB235, as written, die in committee and a fully inclusive bill introduced in the near future. We need protections to which all citizens are entitled under the laws of the State of Maryland and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.”

Know The Enemy Part 1

Religion is not our friend.

All religions, with the possible exception of the Wicca, hate women.  One of their main purposes is the oppression of women as well as supporting the power structures that keep the wealthy safe and in control.  Heaven is a contractual lie that prevents the poor from demanding social justice and equality in this life time by offering a promised reward i.e. heaven.  Never mind there is no physical evidence of the existence of this place or of the place of punishment i.e. hell.  But there is plenty of evidence of the hell the rich and religious have created in the here and now.

In Maryland the Black Churches were behind the killing of the marriage equality bill.  The Black churches along with the Catholics, Mormons and California Evangelicals were the ones who took away the right of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples (as well as TS/TG folks in same sex relationships).

These are the same misogynists who are behind the fight to prevent passage of the Equal Rights Amendment and who want to deny women the right to control their own bodies.

Southern Baptist leaders stand against proposed ‘gender identity’ law in Nash.

by Michael Foust

Posted on Mar 14, 2011

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Three prominent Southern Baptist leaders are publicly opposing a proposed Nashville law that would require city contractors to add non-discrimination policies based on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”

The policy could: 1) allow men access to women’s restrooms, 2) drive up costs due to litigation, and, 3) imperil religious liberty, the leaders say.

The three leaders — Richard Land, Frank Page and Thom Rainer — co-wrote a column published March 14 in The Tennessean. Land is president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, Page is president of the Executive Committee and Rainer is president of LifeWay Christian Resources.

The Southern Baptist leaders say the proposed ordinance, which already passed the metro council once (21-16) and could receive a final vote March 16, is “ill-advised and should be rejected.” The law would place homosexuality alongside “such immutable characteristics” as race, gender and disability.

“Discrimination against such immutable characteristics as race, gender and disability is immoral, has no place in our society, and is prohibited under both federal and Tennessee law,” the letter reads. “Homosexuality is not in the same class as these characteristics, yet the proposed ordinance would elevate ‘gender identity’ and ‘sexual orientation’ to the same protected status.”

Notice the divide and conquer technique aimed at keeping all oppressed people fighting against each other rather than uniting in struggle against a common enemy.  Guess where the churches fall? Hint right next to Faux News and the Koch brothers.

Bank Of America Anonymous Leak Alleges ‘Corruption And Fraud’

The WikiLeaks-allied hacker group Anonymous has posted a series of emails purported to be from a former Bank of America employee, which the organization says prove “corruption and fraud” at the nation’s largest bank.

In a release announced with the Twitter hashtag #BlackMonday, Anoymous posted the emails on the site BankofAmericasuck.com, where an emailer who identifies himself as an ex-Bank Of America employee airs a number of grievances against his former employer. The website’s availability was up and down early Monday morning, potentially due to high traffic. The e-mails could not be independently verified.

In a statement to Reuters on Sunday, a Bank of America spokesman said the emails are simply clerical and administrative errors. “”We are confident that his extravagant assertions are untrue,” the spokesman told Reuters.

Bank of America did not immediately return multiple calls on Monday.

The claims of the person purporting to be a former employee appear to begin with so-called “forced-place insurance,” in which a mortgage borrower who doesn’t maintain an insurance policy on their home has a policy “placed” for them by their insurer. The problem with forced-place insurance, as Felix Salmon noted in November, comes when a mortgage servicer owns an insurer. This can allow for highly inflated premiums and inadequate policies forced upon borrowers without their knowledge.

Anti-Cuts Campaigners Plan ‘Carnival of Civil Disobedience’

Student groups and tax avoidance protesters will stage occupations to coincide with TUC demonstration on 26 March

by Matthew Taylor

Published on Monday, March 14, 2011 by The Guardian/UK

Anti-cuts campaigners are planning a wave of sit-ins, occupations and “people’s assemblies” to coincide with this month’s TUC demonstration, in a “carnival of civil disobedience” designed to highlight opposition to the government’s programme of cuts.

Student activists, tax avoidance campaigners and anti-capitalist groups say they plan to occupy some of the capital’s “great buildings”, close down scores of high street stores and stage a 24-hour occupation of Hyde Park.

“This is going to be a really important day,” said Anna Walker of the campaign group UK Uncut. “We had the student protests and we have seen the growth of UK Uncut, but this is the first time we are going to have people from all over the UK together whose lives are being turned upside down by these cuts. It is going to be the start of something powerful.”

The direct action is planned to coincide with the TUC’s anti-cuts demonstration on 26 March, when more than 100,000 people – including public sector workers, families and first-time protesters – are expected to take to the streets of London.

UK Uncut, a peaceful direct action group set up five months ago to oppose government cuts and protest against corporate tax avoidance, is calling on its supporters to occupy and close down scores of shops on Oxford Street.
