Bachmann Shares Another Wild Conspiracy Theory About Obama, Clinton, U.N.


Michele Bachmann stopped by Jan Markell’s extremist right-wing radio show this weekend to share her latest unhinged conspiracy theory: that President Barack Obama is attempting to impose Sharia law in the United States, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wants to override the First Amendment through a U.N. treaty.

Right Wing Watch has audio of the interview, which really must be heard to be believed.

Bachmann began by warning that “President Obama, if you look at nearly every decision he has made about this issue, it is to lift up the Islamists and to take down Israel,” before claiming that Obama has enacted “Islamic speech codes” in the United States to shut down any and all criticism of the religion:

Not just verbal speech, but written, a cartoon, a painting, whatever it is, if it is in any way construed as being against Islam that is where the confrontation comes from the Islamist world and they want to stop anyone in the world from saying anything negative about Islam. Which means there is only one free speech right and that would belong to the Islamists. Everyone else would lose their right of speech and expression.

The reason why this is important is because this is the whole game, it is game over if we who are in the non-Islamist world lose the right to criticize what the Islamist does, because the Islamist tries to advocate Islamic Sharia law and so anything that we would say in the future, once you criminalized anti-Islamic speech, anything that we would say that would be critical in any way of anything Islam does would be considered criminalized.

Of course, the United States’ commitment to Israel has never wavered under the Obama administration, and the decimation of al Qaeda over the past four years hardly squares with Bachmann’s assertion that the president’s every move is designed to “lift up the Islamists.” Putting those facts aside, however, how does Bachmann think that Obama could get away with such a blatant violation of the First Amendment? As with most right-wing conspiracies, the shocking answer lies in the United Nations.

“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she helped to formulate and write and pass UN Resolution 16/18, which calls for the criminalization — anti-free speech measures,” Bachmann says. “She’s already signed this. While a UN resolution doesn’t bind United States law, how in the world could the president allow the Secretary of State to sign a resolution that indicates that we are willing to take away the free speech rights of the American people?”

Ignoring the fact that the U.N .Resolution in question does not limit free speech at all, Bachmann went on to explain that

U.N. Resolution 16/18 which Hillary Clinton signed, presumably with the affirmation of President Obama..that’s the first step in a big step for taking away from you and me and all of your listeners our right of free speech and expression, religious practice, freedom of assembly, freedom of the printing press but even more importantly, it will empower the Islamist to use that against us.

This is not the first time that Bachmann has accused Clinton of being complicit in an “Islamist” plot; in July she spearheaded a campaign accusing Clinton’s deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin of conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood. That attack was so far over the line that fellow Republican John McCain — who usually loves a good conspiracy — took to the Senate floor to denounce Bachmann’s “sinister accusations.”

If Bachmann persists with this type of paranoid rambling, she may suffer consequences for it in the 2014 elections. Unlike most of her colleagues in the Republican Party’s Crazy Caucus, Bachmann faced a serious electoral challenge in 2012; she edged Democrat Jim Graves by less than 5,000 votes out of more than 350,000 cast. Graves has said that he’ll “keep an open mind” about a rematch, unless Bachmann “really changes her modus operandi and starts serving the people” — and that certainly doesn’t seem to be the case so far.

    That woman is an idiot and so are those who put her into office again. Such people can’t be entrusted with positions of leadership in this country. She should be put away in a dark place where she can do no further harm. It’s pathetic and shameful such people with such small minds inhabit the same planet that the rest of us enjoy.

    1. latebloomingrandma December 13, 2012

      It’s people like Bachman that I refer to as the “side effects” of a free society. It’s just really scary that she has enough followers to actually put her in public office, for heaven’s sake. Because our country is free, she can spew her nonsense. A hundred years ago, she may have been locked up in an institution.

      1. Annemb December 13, 2012

        Great post!

        I was just thinking the question, “how did the folks re-elect her?”

        Yes, we have freedom of speech – but that freedom comes with responsibility which, of course, the right wingers (including Bachman) have no sense about it.

        They need to be stopped before they continue to spread their venom further!


        1. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

          What is anathema to you may be a blessing to others. All that Michele Bachmann and her ilk have to do is to get more people to vote for her than vote for her opponents.

          That’s the way it is in a democracy.

          1. Annemb December 13, 2012

            Thanks for your post.

            I understand what you say. However responsibility comes with the freedoms, as does accountability.

          2. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

            It would be nice if that were a requirement for public office, but it is not. Anybody who is an American citizen and over a certain age can run for public office and vote.

            As far as I know, those are the only qualifications. There are some limitations for convictions.

          3. Annemb December 14, 2012

            Yes, you are correct. I would just like to see a sense of responsibility especially by those who are in public office.

            Obama and his regeme could be in deep dodo for lying about Benghazi. Finally

        3. Lin01915 December 15, 2012

          Yes, we do have freedom of speech. It’s inherent to our country’s founding and it’s in the Constitution but freedom of speech has limitation-you cannot yell “FIRE!!” in a crowded movie theater when there is none because people will get hurt. Bachmann should not be given a pass by using the freedom of speech “right” as her excuse to make wildly inacurrate statements that have the potential to incite people to make really bad choices.

          1. Annemb December 15, 2012

            Your post is on the mark.

            That’s exactly what I meant when I said that yes, we do have freedom of speech = but with responsibility. And yes, “…Bachmann should not be given a pass using her freedom of speech “to make wildly inaccurate statements that have the potential to incite people to make really bad choices.”

            We all should speak responsibly — especially those who hold public office or who deal with the public.


          2. williamunknown January 16, 2013

            what about when you make a video on youtube that few people even knew about and were blamed for coordinated terrorist attacks in both egypt, yemen, and libya? even those responsible for the attacks claimed it was in response to a drone strike. doesnt that chill criticism of islam? thats just one example. remember a priest wanting to burn a quran and the government response?

            i dont think bachman is correct. however, even a broken clock is right twice a day. the usa is undeniably becoming very restrictive of people who criticize islam. it plays very hardball against those who do.

            so maybe the first amendment is under attack – parts of it that offend someone. then it becomes hate speech. even if its not nice, it still doesnt reach the level of “fire” in the movie theater. does it? if there are all sorts of things that cant be said even though they may (or may not) be true, then actually the first amendment was stifled. i missed the part that required things said to be true in the first amendment and as long as they arent said/written with malice or intent to cause harm they fall outside libel and slander laws as well. i also missed the part where things said, when true, werent allowed to offend anyone. so even inconvenient facts are censored?

            the interesting thing about it is how many americans willingly roll over, give up their rights, and hope for some dubious safety or ‘freedom’ from being offended or forced to confront unpleasant ideas or truths.

          3. John Fennessy February 20, 2013

            I think it was a minister who wanted to burn the Koran. Don’t remember it being a priest.

          4. Dennis Paul Habern January 20, 2013

            Bachmann was not given a pass. Her and 3 or 4 other

            republicans maintain proof that Clinton’s private

            secretary maintains family members, and herself,

            perhaps that are connected to “THE MUSLIM

            BROTHERHOOD.” Duh!!!!

            Inaccurate? They’re out and out lies. One should be held to some kind of standard of truth if one is to serve in the U.S. Congress. This woman out to be run out of Washington on a rail. She’s pathetic.

            Completely disagree. Your analogy is fatuous. To yell fire for fun is criminal. If you believe that there is a fire in the theater and yell fire would not even be a misdemeanor although you might be required to give good reasons for your actions. For MB to stand up and give her opinion is her right. The irresponsibility, in my opinion, is with the people/idiots who vote for her.

          22. Allan Richardson June 21, 2013

            Huma Abedin is married to a Jew. Hardly the romance that a RADICAL Muslim would choose. Most Muslims are NOT radical, any more than most Christians are like Bachmann; only the crazy ones.

          23. Dennis Paul Habern June 21, 2013

            Hey Einstein:

            You and your crowd are so naive.

            What you fail to comprehend, ALL Muslims live by a code that evidently you and your altruistic

            followers of the Moron in the White House and his radical Muslim cult are evidently not aware,

            therefore, permit me to be the first to clue you in. The code is simple. In reality, there are no

            moderate Muslims. They are attached to this code, like stink on shit. Once the whistle is blown,

            those that consider themselves Moderate and Radical Muslims will turn on we infidels and attempt

            to eliminate us. If the so-called moderates do not follow the actions of the radicals, they themselves

            will receive the same death sentence. I hope that I maintain your attention. In other words, it would

            behoove you and your kind, to not trust ANY Muslims, and a good example of these words of wisdom,

            is the despicable POTUS that you and your kind fawn over. How can any self-respected American

            claim any loyalty to a Moron that failed to mount a mission on September 11, 2012 to rescue our

            4 Americans at Benghazi, when their was ample time? There is no excuse, and whatever you think

            the excuse might be, it is not good enough. What you and yours and this Moron fail to grasp, is the

            fact that we Americans do not leave other Americans in jeopardy without making an honest to rescue

            them. If the 4 Americans were “BLACK” or “MUSLIM,” is there any doubt in your foggy mind that this

            Moron would have rescue them? That’s what I thought you said!!! Recently, in Germany, in the city

            of Berlin, your hero really screwed up and the world press were quick to kick his little Black Ass. It had

            something to do with the Catholic Church and other little tidbits that evidently, because you do not follow

            politics carefully, you are quick, similar to the “LAMESTREAM MEDIA,” to speak before you know what

            you are talking about. The house of the Moron that currently dictates in the White House, is slowly

            crumbling, and therefore, I would advise you, like a rat, to jump ship while the jumping is good. “WHEN THE

            GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GETS GOING.” I believe that you get the idea. Do yourself a favor.

            Check out the Muslim Code. In addition, if you are interested, check out the author Robert Spencer and

            read what he maintains concerning the wonderful of Islam. Islam is nothing more that a barbaric cult whose

            mandate is fostered by violence and subjugation, but of course you were aware of that, weren’t you? Also, if

            you are further interested, perform the research into the background of George Soros, The Rothschilds and of

            course, your hero.

            you worthless democratic souls have performed any research into the

            character of your hero and George Soros. If you support “YOUR DEAR

            LEADER,” that means that you support the most treacherous, ex-Nazi

            collaborator during World War Two, George Soros, whom is responsible

            for pulling your dummies strings and seeking to destroy the United States’
            economy and capitalism. You must be one of the culprits that are waiting

            Romney, he played it too nice, and that is why he lost. What do you think
            about your heroes cowardly act, as Commander in Thief, of permitting

            those 4 Americans to perish? There is no excuse for non-American and

            eventually, the truth will catch up with him and his motley crew. It is quite
            evident that you are one of those whom never paid attention in school when
            your teacher inform you to use critical thinking. I can excuse the American
            people for their initial mistake in electing this Moron in 2008, because,
            similar to you, the Americans that elected this fool, did not use Critical
            Thinking, if you follow, and then, to compound the error, they re-elected, him,

She is, however, still a proper subject for shock therapy! In 1912, it is worth saying, she could not have voted, so she would not have held office, anyway.

        Muslims and the Communists that have invaded the White House, similar

        to FDR’s administration was saturated with Communists, namely the ring-

        leader, Alger Hiss. Do the research Einstein. If you had payed attention in

        High School, could have imparted your words of wisdom, more

        intelligently, if you follow. Leave Bachmann alone. You nut-cases and the

        rest of you civilians have no idea what your talking about concerning your

      8. Timothy Bartholomew February 4, 2013

        and we could lock you up too…if we don’t like what you say. Hmmmm.

      9. Ian Dowsett February 4, 2013

        good point about side effects. there is a common instinct that we need to directly fight to remove people like bachmann, but a better approach might be saying “well this is an honest reflection of where the nation is culturally and educationally”, and agitate harder for an improvement in the standard of education and debate

      10. cats33 May 7, 2013

        For heavens sake, she is right!! MB is all through our Gov. They are also in the WH

      11. Mari Johnson July 31, 2013

        I am confident that this latest investigation of the antics of this silly woman will rid our party of the shame she has brought to our party. Her sad antics that are so disgusting make her a true drag on all Republicans. I am hoping Republicans have the guts to call her out on her disgustingly sleazy conduct of her politics. We simply do not need her blab that drags our party down.

    2. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

      While I agree that Michele Bachmann is a loose cannon, I have to remind you that there are no qualifications aside from citizenship and age for running for public office and voting in America. Nor should there be such qualifications. The South tried it with poll taxes and literacy tests, and it took the Supreme Court to get rid of them.

      Prople may be incredibly stupid and mean spirited, but their rights must be protected.

      1. grammyjill December 13, 2012

        I do think that any person that wants to run for public office should have to pass a mental evauluation. That might weed out some of the crazies.

        1. CPANewYork December 14, 2012

          You can “think” what you want, but any such requirement would be ruled unconstitutional.

          1. grammyjill December 15, 2012

            Yes, it would be. But it would be nice to be able to get the crazies weeded out. Afterall you have to pass a mentak evual to be a cop, firemen or military. Why not public office?

        2. cats33 May 7, 2013

          Obama didn’t even qualify to be on the ballot in Indiana. Fraud got him on it, and the 4 that “created” votes for him are facing up to 75 years in prison. Google, Indiana fraud in 2008

      2. Mark Ginn April 23, 2013

        But do we have to listen? 🙂

    3. onedonewong December 13, 2012

      Are you denying that Hilary has used taxpayers $$$ to rebuild Mosques???

      1. Rodney December 29, 2012

        hey onedone follow along, It not about hilary or the pres. It about what Bachman saided can you make a comment on that. lets make it simple for you if you agree say yes if you disagree say no. thanks

    4. Sierra111 January 9, 2013

      And her husband is some sort of therapist/counselor.

    5. Dennis Paul Habern January 20, 2013

      You must be another non-educated American whom does not follow politics at all.

      The entire White House is loaded with Communists (Obama and Axelrod), and

      Muslims (Obama & Jarrett), and there are more in both categories, and in addition,

      don’t think for a moment that Hillary Clinton doesn’t lean in both directions and also, her

      right-hand female secretary, Huma Abedin, both she and her family are connected

      to the Muslim Brotherhood. Therefore, be aware of yourself bad-mouthing

      Bachmann, because she is on the mark, similar to Joe McCarthy in the 1950’s

      Red (Communist) scare, if you follow. McCain is over the hill and should retire,

      voluntarily as his 7 years Hotel Hanoi in North Vietnam, is finally taking its toll.

      1. Mark Ginn April 23, 2013

        Wow dude, you’re SCARY stupid! If you know what I mean, Einstien.

      2. Conrad Wawrzyczny May 3, 2013

        I agree, McCain is over the hill, but your mind is questionable.

    6. Frank Robinson January 20, 2013

      Idiot? Nono; Like “Tailgunner Joe” McCarthy, this woman is laffing all the way to the voting booth. What, besides her conspiracism, could she use to get votes? It is, as latebloomingrandma says, a sad side effect to our society. The raucous ranter we shall have ever with us. Bear up.

    7. 2cajun7 February 15, 2013

      Yes she is an idiot,but then look at the support she gets from people like the Fox No-News network. Her claims about Obama,Clinton,and the UN border not only far right of the idiot scale but also makes me wonder about her own sanity. The “swiss” lady should use the other side of free speechand shut up!
      The far right will go too far one day and Obama will use the powers he inherited from Bush to silence them.
      BTW if we all get out there and yell that the law should be enforced, News Corp should be denied it’s TV license for violating the laws against bribery of foreign officials. The UK has already convicted one man and the trials of 16 other News Corp employees will open soon for bribing UK police officials.

    8. lana ward April 30, 2013

      Check out “Muslim Purchase of the United States Presidency”, then still call her an idiot, idiot!!!

    9. lana ward May 5, 2013

      You’re right, Hillary is and idiot and a liar and she has proved she can’t be entrusted with a position of leadership. She’s a murderer. She watched as 4 heroes were tortured and murdered in Benghazi and didn’t do a damn thing to help. In fact, she cut back the security that Stevens had. She is pathetic and shameful and she should be in prison!!!

    10. cats33 May 7, 2013

      I think your “leader” is in deep dodo for lying about Benghazi. Another Watergate?

  2. lucimar2 December 12, 2012

    She is my disctrict representative and I am not only ashamed of her, I think she is so off her rocker, she should be put away. And what about the idiots that put her there.

    1. stcroixcarp December 13, 2012

      I used to live in her district. I moved.

      1. Annemb December 13, 2012

      She was put on the House Intelligence Committee as a way of trying to shut her up. As a result, the Committee lost 40 IQ points.

      1. patuxant December 13, 2012

        Only 40?

      2. Bill December 13, 2012

        Bachman on the House Intelligence committee, now that’s an oxymoron or just plain moron if I ever saw one.

      3. grammyjill December 13, 2012

        I sent Boehnor an email and told him not to let her do that anymore. That a third grader was more intelligent. Guess he didn’t listen.

    4. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

      What about the “idiots” who put her in office?

      1. Michael Kollmorgen December 14, 2012

        Yep, That’s the big question.

    5. patuxant December 13, 2012

      Work harder in your district to get this dimwit out! We did it here in California to Mary Bono Mack, Sonny’s second wife. Now we have an ER MD whom I believe is principled and so does the ultra conservative newspaper here who cast their support behind Raul Ruiz, MD.

    6. DukeDacat December 13, 2012

      “she edged Democrat Jim Graves by less than 5,000 votes out of more than 350,000 cast”

      How many registered voters are in your district?
      So, who are the other elected officals in your district, WOW!
      I think I too would consider moving…………………

    I remember an old Mel Brooks movie where he played a doctor who diagnosed a patient as “Nutsy Cookoo.” I think this describes this looney tune to a T. Her medication dosage definitely needs to be increased.

  4. Baron Cormac December 12, 2012

    She lives in her own little universe filled with conspriacy theories. No matter what facts are presented to her, she will always come up with some wild @$$ theory proving that the people from her Congressional district are either totally clueless about what she does and says, or else thay are sitting back and enjoying the joke they have foisted on the rest of the country.

    Man, Garrison Keillor really needs to take her on with his satire. Maybe that will finally drive her over the edge and result in her being carted off to a rubber room, wearing a “loves me” jacket.

    1. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

      As crazy as she is, she still gets people to vote for her. Has anybody who’s appalled by her being in office ever tried to find out why so many people choose to vote for her?

      1. John M Eschenbaum December 13, 2012

        I must say she does clean up pretty good. But that is only skin deep!

  5. FredAppell December 12, 2012

    Earlier today I was making a sandwich and as I was lowering my knife into the jar of mayonnaise I had noticed that a little bit of the mayonnaise was yellowish in color and I suddenly realized that there is a conspiracy, a mayonnaise conspiracy! Actually, the only conspiracy I see is people such as Michele Bachmann and those of her ilk are still in positions of leadership which doesn’t exactly give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

  6. I Zheet M'Drawz December 13, 2012

    Thank Gawd-DUH for Ms. Bachman. Without her late night comedy would be very stale.

    She forgot to mention the REAL conspiracy, Obama is really from another planet & is here to take over the world & enslave humanity & make them toil in the salt mines because Obamas’ home planet needs the salt…pant pant


    1. Charvi3 December 13, 2012

      you are taking the wrong pills man…you need to get your meds changed for bi-polar problems every year or two…get checked out if you keep thinking that others are from another planet..you have a lot of problems staying focused…you must be one of those smokers…and smoking ruins your reasoning abilities and your concentration thoughts and rots your brain…that is what is making you illucinate..poor thing…most people that smoke have a lot of hostility in them…just like the bi-polar people do…that love to hurt others…but, you are a smoker no mistake to that one…you must be one of those narcissistic people who are a con-artist and really love that money just for yourself…you are into the “me” generation and not into the “we” generation…you have no love or concern for the middle class nor the poor..and if you go to church on Sundays…stay home please because Jesus Christ is not in favor of the filthy rich who are not helping the downtrodden or the poor nor the middle class who had to pay more payroll taxes then the filthy rich people…because all they do is keep making those investments and pay very little into the pay-roll taxes and most of them will donate to charities to get a tax refund..how terrible…we have enough hyprocrites attending church on Sunday and not getting any better…so, just stay home…you are a true follower of the wrong crowd must have had lots of problems when you were little…one of those bullies like Mitt.

      1. I Zheet M'Drawz December 13, 2012

        That’s right buddy. I’m about me me me & I ain’t signing.

        And Jesus is on my side not yours.

      2. FredAppell December 13, 2012

        I thought I would interject here a little. I Zheet M’Drawz and you are on the same side. He/she was being sarcastic, it’s called humor. But, because you attacked him/her they felt obliged to be as obnoxious to you as possible. But before you reply to someone, you should look up their profile so you have a better understanding of what they believe in.

    2. Dianna S December 13, 2012

  10. paule33 December 13, 2012

    Michelle Bachmann is sick. She just makes up these stories to get attention. It’s to bad she wasn’t voted out in the last election

  11. Jacqui Christian December 13, 2012

    Is this woman for real? She needs to be committed. Seriously

  12. Dominick Vila December 13, 2012

    Michele Bachman is a Joe McCarthy amazon consumed by paranoia, intolerance and hatred. She personifies the Tea Party like nobody else. The idea of a tiny Muslim minority in the USA imposing Sharia law in our country is something that only someone suffering from extreme dementia can consider, let alone suggest. Michele, take my advice, seek professional help. The sooner the better.

    1. darkagesbegin December 13, 2012

      I believe she did seek professional help–she went to her husband… I guess we see how that worked out.

    2. middleclasstaxpayer December 13, 2012

      Islam is the world’s second largest religion after Christianity. According to a 2010 study, Islam has 1.62 billion adherents, making up over 23% of the world population. Since their birth rate is about 9 to 1, vs a US birth rate of about 2-1, in 20 years, Islamists may dominate most countries, as they have done in the United Kingdom, where a study conducted by the Pew Research Center in 2010 and released January 2011 found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon and more in China than in Syria….I would not be so sure they could not dominate the US population in 2 decades to come. And they do NOT adhere to the same liberal customs as we do here. Not by a long shot!

      1. Dianna S December 13, 2012

        All Muslims do not adhere to the same beliefs. There are many facets of Muslims as there are many facets of Christianity. It is the extremists that cause the most problems. Note that, although Egypt is a Muslim country, they DO NOT desire to be under the extreme Sharia Law and are daily protesting their newly elected President concerning that. They want a Democracy. You cannot throw each Muslim into the same basket nor each Christian either. Although America does support Isreal, it wasn’t that long ago that being a Jew in America was looked down on and Jews even lived in certain sections of town away from their Christian neighbors. I have heard the comments from my deceased aunt and uncle who lived in Philedelphia and they were not nice to hear. The KKK refused membership to Catholics, Jews and Blacks………….and it is a sad commentary of America that we allowed such organizations to exist. The Michelle Bachmann’s of the world may not burn down homes or hang people from the tallest tree, but they are just as intolerant to people different from themselves. It appears that the intolerant ones live in her district!

    3. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

      I don’t like the Muslims. I beleieve that the Muslims in America are a danger to America.

      I favor legislation that would declare that the religion constitutes a clear and present danger to the United States and outlaws its practice. Any who refuse to give up their religion would be deported or jailed.

      1. patuxant December 13, 2012

        What happened to “freedom of religion” or is it just for some, especially if they think like me or you?

        1. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

          It’s denied to those who constitute a clear and present danger to the rest of us. Anything that the Muslims don’t like, they consider a justification for visiting violence on the “infidels”. Their “fatwahs” against authors like Salman Rushdie, who dare to exercise their First Amendment rights are sufficient proof that the Muslims are an intolerant religious group that is a danger to anyone who isn’t in acccord with their medieval beliefs.

          There’s precedent for outlawing this religion. In the early 1950’s, the United States outlawed the Communist Party as a clear and present danger to the country. The same can be said of the Muslims.

          1. patuxant December 13, 2012

            Just like Rushdie is a Muslim as well as the 14 yr old girl shot in the head because she wanted to go to school, there must be many others. Please try not lumping everyone into the same big box. You do yourself a disservice. What you are referring to is a radical branch of that religion and not the majority of these people.

          2. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

            Mohammed founded his religion by invading pagan areas and slaughtering anyone who didn’t agree to convert to Islam.

            The religion was born in violence and continues to be violent. If there are any nonviolent Muslims, they form a small minority and are overshadowed by the violent ones.

            Frankly, they don’t enter into this conversation, because the real threat is the violent wing of the religion.

          3. metrognome3830 December 13, 2012

            The US did not outlaw the Communist party in the 1950s or any other time. But that’s what Joe McCarthy apostles would like you to believe. I say, to back up your statement, you provide a copy of the law that outlawed the Communist party. And you better check again. There is still a Communist party in the US. And a Socialist party. They often run for public office and sometimes even win. If you and MuddledClasstaxpayer want to make these wild ass statements, you should probably check your sources a bit more .

          4. CPANewYork December 13, 2012


            You’re the one who should check his sources. Mine are fine. The law was titled the Communist Control Act of 1954 and it outlawed the CPUSA. CPUSA means “Communist Party USA” in case you didn’t know that.

            Previous to that law, in 1949 the “Foley Square Trial” resulted in the conviction of eleven defendants who were first line Communists, including Gus Hall and Eugene Dennis, for advocating the overthrow of the United States government. In addition, the judge held their lawyers in contempt of court. If that doesn’t satisfy you, consider this: In the 1950s, over one hundred second line Communists were tried and convicted. As far as I know, there was no legislation outlawing the Socialist Party. I never said that there was.

            If the Communist Party is still fielding candidates in American elections, I’d like you to give me a couple of examples, so that I can make inquiries into the circumstances.

          5. metrognome3830 December 14, 2012

            Sadly, CPA, you are right. The CPUSA was outlawed under the Smith Act. This act should be considered a lesson for us all as to what mass hysteria can do. I don’t know if you have read the history of the act, but I will tell you we are all fortunate that it isn’t still used today. Unfortunately, though it has been amended several time, it has never been overturned although rarely ever used. I do not know of any Communists running for office currently but one of the defendants in the Foley Square trial, Gus Hall ran for president several times. Socialist candidates run for government offices in nearly every election. Anyway, read the history of the Smith Act and the conduct of the trials and decide whether you would still advocate such a law today. If you do, God help us all if you should somehow get into a power position.

          6. CPANewYork December 15, 2012

            In a democracy, the people have the right to replace the government, but there’s a corollary: The government has the right to maintain itself. That seems fair to me.

            The Communists and other subversive organizations maintain their right to be active, but deny that right to any opposition. It’s no accident that every Communist government was and is a brutal tyranny.

          7. metrognome3830 December 15, 2012

            All true, CPA, but the Communists can’t act on that right because they don’t get elected. The original Smith Act we discussed didn’t not rule against thinking or talking about Communism. It outlawed the “violent overthrow” of the government. However some, some might refer to them as “activist” judges decided that talking and thinking presented and “clear and present danger.” In spite of the mass hysteria of the time. Some judges still ruled the law as it was being interpreted, unconstitutional. But the Supreme Court upheld the convictions of the defendants in the Foley trial. However, after the hysteria died down (after the reign of Joe McCarthy) there was a change in public opinion and most of the 11 defendants were released from prison after two or three years. The Smith Act is still on the books after several amendments, but rarely, if ever used. And here we are, over 60 years later and we still haven’t been “violently overthrown” nor are we in immediate danger of that. However, we have participated in the violent overthrow of foreign governments going back at least to the fifties while McCarthy was persecuting people he deemed as Communist “subversives.” He was even right on several occasions, but not nearly as often as he was wrong. But now the right has a couple of new targets. Socialists and Muslims and they will try to whip us into another frenzy. I’m not buying into it. My excuse for the McCarthy era is that I was a teenager and didn’t know any better.

          8. CPANewYork December 17, 2012

            I was a teenager in that era and did know better, as my father couldn’t stand McCarthy.

            One thing that isn’t mentioned is the religious aspect of the matter. I was in high school at the time and noticed that the Catholic kids were solidly behind McCarthy. I had a number of arguments with Catholic friends over the matter.

            Nothing was ever settled and we stopped arguing.

            It was years later that I found out that St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York was conducting periodic memorial masses for Joe McCarthy.

          9. metrognome3830 December 17, 2012

            I was about 12 when I became aware of Joseph McCarthy. I was in the eighth grade in a Catholic school. And you are right. Catholics were solidly behind McCarthy. “Godless Atheists,” we were told. Even up to the time I was college age my parents were opposed to my attending a public university because there might be Communist professors. There were rumors. As a result, I didn’t attend a university until six years after I graduated from high school. I was determined not to buy into the Communist conspiracy. I’m in my mid-70s now and some people who knew me when still think I just might be a Communist myself. Like you, I just quit arguing.

          10. Dianna S December 13, 2012

            The Communist Party wasn’t outlawed. I have seen even in my sixty some years, people on the ballot running for office under the Communist Party. Not in many years, but I do know they exist in these United States of America.

          11. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

            The Communist Control Act of 1954 outlawed the Communist Party. Check me on Google if you want to.

          12. 113121 December 13, 2012

            Why lie? What does that do for you?

          13. CPANewYork December 14, 2012

            Again, what are you talking about? You don’t believe that in 1954 Congress passed a law outlawing the Communist Party in the United States?

          14. 113121 December 14, 2012

            I have written you two replies here already with a link. I have no idea why they won’t show. Maybe it’s the link. I will try one more time. Go to wikipedia type in Communist Party USA read it to the bottom. I’ve been to their building/headquarters as recently as four years ago when a friend who is a Communist got married. If all the replies show decide to show up it’s just the way it is.

      2. Dianna S December 13, 2012

        I think the same was expressed to the Catholics and Jews. And we know how the Mormons were pushed from one area to another. I don’t adhear to their beliefs, but I certainly believe they have the right to belief as they wish. CPANewYork, you seem to forget that Christians across the world in some countries are jailed or austrodized. That a million Jews were murdered by Hitler for their beliefs, for their heritage………..as were half that many Catholics in Poland and Austria. Your ideas are totally against the Constitution of the United States. You cannot refuse service of the Constitution no more than you can refuse service in a restaurant. Where have you been? Where were you in 1620 when the Pilgrims came for religious freedom? Get your head out of the sand. Perhaps YOU are a danger to America………..I hear Siberia is nice this time of year………..

        1. Michael Kollmorgen December 14, 2012

          Yes, the Pilgrims came here for freedom of religion. But, they were duped into believing this by business interests here that needed labor, mostly under servitude.

          And, by the way, freedom of religion in those days didn’t mean much either. They stigmatized anyone that didn’t adhere to their beliefs. Please notice for what purposes the Salem Witch Trials actually were held for, primarily land grabs discuses as religious trials.

          The main point of my comment to you is that regardless what religion it was or is, when it gains too much power and control over populations, it automatically becomes corrupted.

          This is especially true ever since, during the Reagan Years, the evangelical Movement has become way too involved with our Politics. And, as a result, religion has become just as dirty and filthy.

          1. Eleanor February 2, 2013

            May your days in he%% be hot and nice.

      3. latebloomingrandma December 13, 2012

        The best “weapon” against something you fear, is to learn about it. You should learn about Islam, not just the radical forms. There are many peace loving Muslims living among us, that are not in favor of jihad.

        1. CPANewYork December 13, 2012

          Actually, I’ve read quite a lot about Islam, how it was started and how it was propagated throughout the world. I don’t like it. Jesus didn’t have an army. Mohammed had an army and he spread his religion by killing anyone who refused to convert.

          It’s ironic that the people in the former Yugoslavia who we stepped in to protect from the depredations of the Christian Serbs and Croatians are Muslims. In return for this act of kindness, the rest of the Muslim world holds us in contempt and is pledged to our destruction. Ingrates.

          1. 113121 December 13, 2012

            I live with quite a few Muslims and they are good neighbors and some are friends. I watched their children grow up and have children. And if you want to present yourself as from New York so do you and you should know better. Get a life. Your MTA ads stink by the way which is why you are here right? Still pushing that tired crap.

          2. CPANewYork December 14, 2012

            My ” MTA ads”? What are you talking about?

            You’re hard to understand because you write poorly.

          3. 113121 December 14, 2012

            The nasty MTA ads that the Geller/Bachmann creeps are getting ready to shove in my face and the faces of everyone who rides the subway. You can find all that quite easily since you have spent so much effort to educate yourself on the Muslim religion and NewYork is part of your name. BTW, the Norway child mass murderer was a commenter on Geller’s stupid hatefilled blog. I have noticed that Fox News has started up the antiMuslim hate machine as of three days ago and since the ads are getting ready to come out again I can guess this is what has attracted you here. There are millions of Muslims living here in this country some for four generations, they along with all the other religions have a right to worship here as much as the Christian faction that Bachmann belongs to. Would you like to talk about Bachmann’s religion?

          4. CPANewYork December 15, 2012

            I don’t like Bachmann’s politics, but her religion isn’t murdering thousands of people, as the Muslim religion is. Three thousand people died in the World Trade Center suicide attack on September 11, 2001. The death toll surpassed Pearl Harbor.

            People who murder others because they disagree with their religion do not have the right to practice their hateful and lethal religion. We are not obligated to protect their Constitutional right of religious freedom.

            If the American Muslims want to enjoy the Constitution’s protection, it is their obligation to suppress their co-religionists’ homicidal tendencies. They don’t appear to be willing to do that. They are more apt to whine about discrimination.

            On a more personal note: Your priorities are completely screwed up. You defend the terrorists and condemn the potential victims. People like you try to defend the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor by citing the United States’ refusal to sell oil and metal to them, blithely ignoring the fact that they wanted the oil and metal to prosecute their war of conquest in the Pacific.

            One final note: The Communist Control Act of 1954 is a fact. You can look it up on Google, but you won’t, because you don’t want to be proved wrong. It doesn’t matter whether your Communist friends are permitted to operate today. They were outlawed in 1954. Actually, today the Communist Party is a joke. Perhaps they’re tolerated because they’re so weak. I do not see how any logical person could think that “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” was ever a viable economic philosophy.

          5. 113121 December 15, 2012

            haha You can’t admit you are wrong and yet you do admit it and then you change the subject to the Japanese which has nothing to with anything about Bachmann(I hope, because she is just nutty enough to drag that up just like you) and you find fault with my writing skills? BTW, I have quite a few dear Japanese friends and my son not only studied the language in High School but majored in that language in college. We have many personal connections to that country. It’s big complicated world that changes all the time and you should know better if you add New York to your name. If Fox News did in one way or another send you here to push your bigotry you can now explain to all of us why you listen and spread *news*from a company half owned by a Muslim and can live with that while making life hard for the kids who grow up here being raised by parents who also grew up here.
            How many Communist countries have you visited? I’ve visited several in the 70’s and the 80’s and I twice crossed through Checkpoint Charlie and back again before the wall came down. You are wasting your time worrying about Communism. It’s over and it won’t come back unless you attach that name to normal things like educating children to understand science or Federal highways or what ever normal everyday thing the lunatic Right has decided to hate on to keep generating money to pay themselves.

            I beg to differ about Bachmann’s religion or any other religion you can name.

          6. CPANewYork December 17, 2012


            Referring to your wandering screed:

            To what company “half owned by a Muslim” are you referring?
            What Communist countries have I visited? None. So what does that have to do with my wanting the Muslim religion bannedin America?
            You said that you’ve visited several Communist countries in the seventies and eighties. Again, so what?What did you find so attractyive there? Were you a Communist in your youth?
            I’m not “worried” about Communism. I never was. I always thought that it was a fraud. It certainly wasn’t practiced in Russia, which like every other Communist country degenerated into a tyrannical dictatorship. The present day Chinese leadership seems more interested in making money than in pursuing the goal of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

            Please expand on why you “beg to differ” about Bachmann’s religion. Just to refresh your memory: I said that her religious beliefs aren’t murdering thousands of people, whereas Islam is today doing just that.

  13. grothman December 13, 2012

    This is the type of fundamental unhinged nut that Conservatives say they want in the White House. The reason why they lost, conservatives say is because Romney was not a conervative. Now they say they want more ultra conservatives running….good luck evolving the GOP with these kooks. Truely, they would and given the chance will put somone as vaccuous and borderline crazy as Bachmann in the White House.

  14. Lisztman December 13, 2012

    @dellmartin: I agree with your question, in principle. But the VERY sad fact is that this woman still has an audience. Not only that, but an audience that laps it up!

    My only hope is that there’s sufficient intelligence migrating to Minnesota’s 6th C.D. to get rid of her in another two years. Preferably with sufficient margins that she’s permanently relegated to something like cleaning horse stalls. She’s quite the expert at that stuff…

    1. patuxant December 13, 2012

      She probably doesn’t believe the slog she is slinging. She just knows how to appeal to the inbreeding fools who voted for her. She’s laughing all the way to the bank and these slobs think she gives a crap about them.

      1. metrognome3830 December 13, 2012

        Nah! She believes every word she utters. She is a nutcase and I can’t believe the people in her district actually elected her again. It doesn’t speak very well of her constituency.

  15. dggrundhoffer December 13, 2012

    Bachmann is the new Tea party Republican. Her job is to keep people attacking her till the money people change the rules. They will destroy unions and change voting districts. They will spend money to corrupt and before we know it destroy the middle class. Look at how real income has declined since 1967 and along with this our right to a fair wage and affordable medical insurance. T he rich get richer and the middle class lose.

  16. edwardw69 December 13, 2012

    Let’s just move her district to South Carolina, and encourage them to secede: end of a multitude of problems.

  17. Eleanore Whitaker December 13, 2012

    Bachmann proves that insanity can be beguiling enough to be hypnotic. Hitler had the same ability….loud talk, overbearing posturing, brutish affectations and maniacal lust for control. This woman should be ignored at all costs.

    That the GOP even considered her for a run for the presidency shows how low they will stoop. This woman holds dual citzenship with the US and Switzerland where her husband has all of their moolah hoarded in Swiss banks. How nice and convenient that the GOP never broadcasted that little fact.

  18. William Jay December 13, 2012

    Don’t blame the clown, blame the fools that voted for her.

  19. Charvi3 December 13, 2012

    I wish this nut case would not even think she is going to be heard..because of the crazzy facial expressions for one thing..and now she thinks she has the right to say something…I cannot stand most republicans in the first place..because they don’t care anything about the middle class and the poor and by the way…she doesn’t have to make those expensive payments for her home..and other things…the taxpayers more or less pay her way…so, I wish this nut case would go into hiding and stay there..

  20. William Gheen December 13, 2012

    Michele Bachmann rocks! Right Wing watch is a bunch of cry baby communist smear merchants.

    1. Rodney Neal Powell December 13, 2012

      no she is unhinged loon and from reading your previous statement so are you!

    2. lexi001 December 13, 2012

      As has been repeated on here, the people who voted for her are also insane.

  21. charleo1 December 13, 2012

    Kooky talk is serious business. Pollsters found that 75% of Mississippi voters who identified
    themselves as Evangelical Christians, believed Barack Obama was really a Muslim. This is
    considered a win for those looking for issues that motivate a targeted group of voters.
    Especially in the primaries, where people like Grover Norquist, and Karl Rove have their
    greatest impact. No longer is it just God, Gays, and guns. In the 2010 mid terms, Several State Legislatures put on the ballot, anti-sharia laws to be included in their Constitutions. Like
    guns? Former President of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, warned members, Obama is coming
    after your guns. Granting that he, Obama, had not done anything yet. But, he warned, that
    was only a ploy to lull Americans into a state of complacency. So in his second term, if that
    freedom killing, event should happen, is when he will attempt to disarm America! Gun sales
    skyrocketed. And if you’re one of those who believe Barack Obama is not a citizen, or he
    is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, or that he hates White People, and America, you’ll
    probably go the polls, if a ballot initiative conveniently included by your State GOP, seems
    to reassert your Second Amendment Rights.

    1. patuxant December 13, 2012

      There are people with intelligence and then there are the rest. I have relatives who fall into the second category as well. It is pathetic that there are some people out there who buy this garbage from the likes of Bachmann and Palin. Notice how they look similar and spew the same idiocy? Some men like them and think of them as sex objects. Sick! They are political trash…

      1. charleo1 December 13, 2012

        Well, there’s one thing for sure. Republican politicians can never be accused of
        over estimating the intelligence of their supporters!

  22. Vasant Desai December 13, 2012

    Did we have any doubt about the insanity of this woman ? I donot know how did she become a senator with this kind and degree of very low IQ. It is time she is sent back and forced to retire .

    1. William Quigley December 13, 2012

      Michele is a representative, not a senator. She was able to get elected due to extreme gerrmandering by a republican legislature. The scary part is she has a large following nationally who contribute to her fund raising. She has plenty of money, but there is still some hope that the electorate in her district will wise up and give her the boot in 2014. I believe she is relatively bright similar to Sarah Palin. The problem with both of them is that they areprocessing a lot of garbage and are not interested in and factual information; Garbage in, garbage out!

  23. mavilasr December 13, 2012

    Bachman lives in a non-existent universe. What is she saying? She lives in a “yonder world of DREAMS!!!!”. Hope she returns to the world of REALITY SOON!!!!

  24. Frank Libbon December 13, 2012

    I am sorry to have to recommend this, but after spending 43 uears of my Life with the US Army, during which time I took the Oath to Defend the Constitution of the United Satates seven times,
    I can no longer turn my head and listen to the garbage and the filth coming from Bachmann. I lived through the exact garbage during the Joe McCarthy era in 1954, a drunk who had the unmitigated gall to call General George C. Marshall a living lie, and can no longer condone the likes of these people. Michelle Bachmann MOST GO. She is a disgrace to this Nation.

    1. Michael Kollmorgen December 14, 2012

      The people who elect these people are more of a disgrace than the people they elect.

      When nearly half of the people of this country almost put in a anti-Christ Mitt Romney Mormon Bishop for President, one who supports candidates who believe god approves of rape, who through his title of being Bishop literally supports marrying off young girls to old men in secret, in which case Christianity approved of this guy, what does that tell you about the very people you fought for all these years?

      Think about it!

  25. rl December 13, 2012

    Does anyone take this idiot congresswoman seriously. Sadly some do, and she is able to carry on the hate of the President of the United States. how in the world did she ever get elected to congress. I thought, wrongly I guess, that the people from Minnesota had common sense and intelligence. At least her district does not. One thing I do agree with her is, that it is too bad such people as herself can not be locked away so none of the rest of us have to live with her insanity, and so she can not somewhere convince some nut case to put real crosshairs on a person and act.

    1. ococoob December 13, 2012

      HOw did she get elected? Does MN have gerrymandering?

  26. tobyspeeks December 13, 2012

    Look no further than the Teabilly governors of Wisconsin and Michigan when it comes to taking away the right to assemble. When protesters marched on both capitols the doors were locked and the people were kept from their own house. Then Walker went a step further and banned all protests from the capitol and requiring permits for anyone carrying a message (a few people have even been arrested for slogans on T-shirts without a permit) and permits for more than one person to assemble. These permits are not cheap either. So basically Walker and Snyder can completely ignore the constitution and it’s okay.

    Bachmann is a lunatic. I truly believe she has some form of mild mental illness. Can paranoia or compulsive lying be considered mental illness? I’m not kidding. The people of Minnesota will wake up one day we hope.

  27. WILLIAM MARTIN December 13, 2012

    This woman needs to see a Shrink

  28. AlfredSonny December 13, 2012

    Is Bachmann a member of the SNL team?

  29. Annemb December 13, 2012

    Michelle is a very ill, should be kicked out of office and then hospitalized. My feeling is that she is a danger to American society.

  30. sunmusing December 13, 2012

    Aren’t there rules in the House that if a member gets sick or insane they have a way to get help? As a concerned citizen, I think she needs help…

  31. RonaldS December 13, 2012

    Don’t forget that she and her also lunatic husband run a clinic that puports to cure gay people of their unnatural afflication. If that isn’t an indication of someone living in another universe then I don’t know what is. Also, she won by a very narrow margin which means the people in her district are beginning to see the light and she should lose in 2014. Lets hope.

  32. rpg1408 December 13, 2012

    The GOP elected Michelle Bachmann while the Democrats elected Elizabeth Warren. The contrast is crystal clear- inane babbling on the Right vs. a breath of fresh air on the Left.

  33. Rodney Neal Powell December 13, 2012

    I don’t know who is more insane: Bachmann or the clueless people who keep voting for her!

  34. Charles O. Slavens December 13, 2012

    Let’s not forget those Pilgrims Michele, our own Christain Taliban. If they’d been able to pressure our nascent government into incorporating their Sharia type laws into our constitution American would be another Tehran today.

    1. Michael Kollmorgen December 14, 2012

      You are 100% correct!

      Only problem is, they, the religious nuts, haven’t stopped trying.

  35. amazonfan December 13, 2012

    This ‘woman’ is a psychopath, an Islamophobe, a hypocrite and an anti-Semite!

    She’s a psychopath, for obvious reasonds. Her Islamophobia is also incredibly clear. She’s a hypocrite as she wouldn’t want anybody attacking her form of Christianity. She’s an anti-Semite as not only is she no friend of Israel (contrary to what she delusionally thinks) but she keeps on pretending to be a friend of Israel in order to perpetruate her hatred of Muslims and Islam.

    Here’s a tip Bacchman; no self-respecting Jew or Israeli would want a KKK racist extremist as a friend. If you think you are anything but an enemy of Israel, you are not only incredibly delusional but even dumber than thought previously.

  36. Felix December 13, 2012

    Bachmann is frustated the issue she has is that she is angry at Obama because he was reelected, some of those Republicans are not too happy they dreamed with Obama to be a one term President.

    She goes out talking about Sharia Laws and most American do not believe what she is talking about the reason she is doing it is because she wants to be in the news, and as long as those Republican keep playing the religion and race card they never will win the White House.


  37. Dennis F DoranJr December 13, 2012

    This woman needs to be removed from all commitee’s and given the job of cleaning the bathrooms but maybe she isn’t even qualified to do that. She is only a tick above Sara Palin which isn’t saying much. The other women in the senat and house must shake in there shoes wondering what they will come up with next.

  38. Dennis F DoranJr December 13, 2012

    Forgot to mention that those who put here there must be in the same mindset. Sad day for America and those overseas watching this fiasco.

    1. johninPCFL December 13, 2012

      We see it. Marcus has implemented Sharia law in his own home, and now Michelle has to parrot whatever he wants her to say, no matter how batshit crazy it is.

      I hunt ducks from my blind, what do you do in yours? Or were you trying (and failing) to use an apostrophe, as in “you’re blind”?

  40. ivory69690 December 13, 2012

    she,s an air head and thing Co2 is a good gas . she has the hose hooked up to her muffler to her cvar that runs to the house and right to her bed so she can breath in some of her good gas CO2 before her coffee

  41. Wow! December 13, 2012

    She is a nut but what she says about the fear to criticize Islam is true. The whole world is scared to death of these people and it should be stopped. It could be if the entire world would stand up for right of free speech. Islam is a cult in my humble opinion.

  42. ivory69690 December 13, 2012

    Michele Bachmann stopped by Jan Markell’s extremist right-wing radio show this weekend to share her latest unhinged conspiracy theory: that President Barack Obama is attempting to impose Sharia law in the United States, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wants to override the First Amendment through a U.N. treaty.///// how can this retard get votes at all ? she,s on her own space ride with her space brain . even when you look at her face and her eyes she,s truly in a nother world bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz brain

  43. howa4x December 13, 2012

    I love it. Keep it up Michelle. I hope you go all over the country making this same speech. Then people will realize how out of touch with reality you really are. Maybe you can run again for president and use this as your platform. The more republicans make speeches about nonsensical issues when the economy needs a fix and disasters, droughts, wild fires, hurricanes, super storms, are happening, they will seem like they live in an alternate reality. Come to NJ where super storm Sandy reaked a path of destruction and tell the people who have no power and whose homes were washed away, that this is the issue you sould really be concerned about. I want front row seats for this one

  44. ivory69690 December 13, 2012

    when she talks its just a way she gets right in the middle of thing like a TALIBAN trooper watch out when she in the middle she might just pull the string to the bomb she has strapped on

  45. Tom Maxson December 13, 2012

    Michele Bachmann is enough to make a free speech advocate rethink their position.

  46. ivory69690 December 13, 2012

    hey space brain your hubby is advocate Islamic Sharia law on you and you can only talk when he lets you . he has you under his own Sharia Law

  47. Don B December 13, 2012

    Michele Bachman is the “Miss Congeniality” recipient in the Eva Braun Beauty Pageant.

  48. ivory69690 December 13, 2012

  49. Sa Janes December 13, 2012

    It makes my stomach turn that people who believe in and support this vile, ugly-minded moron actually share the same planet with us.

  50. gargray December 13, 2012

    Why does the press print such garbage. What she says isn’t press worthy. Don’t waste the time or paper reporting what she says.

  51. ignore the facts December 13, 2012

    Normally, insane people like Bachman are institutionalized. Why isn’t she? She’s a mortal danger to thsi country.

  52. oldtack December 13, 2012

    Long time member of the Lutheran Church – non- attendee for several years. Left Lutheran Faith in 2011 and attends an Evangelical Group Service.
    Owns a “Christian” Counseling Practice operated by her husband. Said husband has a PHD with a “concentration in clinical psychology” though he is not a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Minnesota. Has been implicated as promoting the “cure” of homosexuality through counseling. homosexuality is a “disease of the mind.

    Education – Winona College then entered OW Coburn School of Law at Oral Roberts University – school was established by O W Coburn, father of GOP Rep. Tom Coburn – school folded.
    Firmly believes this Nation was founded as a Chrristin Theocracy and should return to that practice

    With this background are you surprised at her actions?

  53. sleeprn01 December 13, 2012

    No Lynda, Ms. Bachmann isn’t the idiot it’s her constituents that voted her back into office that are idiots as this is not the first of her crazy conspiracy theories.

    1. karinursula December 13, 2012

      I really believe that the crazies rather elect another crazy just because we have a black President. I don’t think that common sense comes into it. Rather cut off my nose to spite my face.

  54. mikeinwaco December 13, 2012

    Yes, Lynda, I’m not sure who’s crazier, this congressperson or the the majority of voters in her district. Allen West was defeated by a razor-thin margin in Florida, and this woman barely eeked by in Wisconsin. It troubles me, too, that there are enough crazies in the U.S. to enable these kinds of brainless idiots get the votes they do. The Republican Party right now is grasping for ways to appeal to middle class voters but yet stubbornly opposes the idea of ending Bush tax cuts on the upper 2% while retaining them for everyone else. Here’s a golden opportunity for the GOP to demonstrate for voters they are not just the party of big business…that they’re sensitive to the needs of a broad cross-section of Americans, but they just don’t get it. Is there something in there collective DNA that causes such self-destructive tendencies? One would think that Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Wilkie, Dewey, and Romney would be enough to convince conservatives that appealing to Wall Street on the one hand and using wedge issues to appeal to the masses on the other is not a winning formula in the long run.

  55. Heriberto R Montalvo December 13, 2012

    Nobody believes this lady.She is worse than Mitt.This lady never has her facts straight.The people that put her back in are just as bad as this lady. And imaging that these are the people that are running this country.So the people that believes this moron are those retarded people.

  56. tman000 December 13, 2012

    This type thinking of “Tabloid Radio” programs, like this one and the Rush Limbaugh’s of radio that are major in creating the split in America and in Washington. They spew “hate and fear” on the airways causing disruption and panic in innocent followers. They make up issues through “Spinning the truth” with drama beyond fiction. The “radio host” do it for the popularity in ratings making them richer, both in money and power. The guest and one’s they quote help as enablers, they are like Ms. Bachman who also need money to create positions of power.

    The public should see through this greed and self centered veiws that hold America back with mockery of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Most Americans are smarter than to let a few “noise makers” create hate and fear, when we need to be pulling together with compromise in strenghtening our Country for a better future. “Good Grief,” these people are trying to take our eye off the goals of our forefathers and Americans that worked and fought for our freedom, liberty and pursuit of happiness for all.

  57. Heriberto R Montalvo December 13, 2012

    Wait a minute this is the lady who claims that the guys could be cured of being gay.That was real funny.That is not a sickness. These people are born like that.I have a sister that is like that.My wife has brother that is like that gay. My kids treat him the way he deserve to be treat as a human.My wife’s sister and her kids treat him bad and nasty.So, he knows that we are the one who treat him good.So, he takes care of my kids very well.And my kids look out for him,too.

  61. Chad1945 December 13, 2012

    It’s difficult to believe that people with common re-elected her. She’s not only an embarrassment to the country; but to women in politics. She’s another form of bullying that should be addressed. Her’s is not free speach; but rather destructive lies.

  62. LS December 13, 2012

      These two guys are not of the same ilk as Bachmann (at least I hope not). I disagree with them as well but I haven’t heard such lunacy from them although they may just prove me wrong today.

      Hey, Michelle, one of your idiots got loose from the 6th C.D. – again.

      This is nature!

      No one CHOOSES to be a homosexual. It is nature!

  69. John M Eschenbaum December 13, 2012

    I swear, her district voted her another term for comedic effect.

  70. James Curci December 13, 2012

    BC (batshite crazy) Bachman, just crawl back under your rock. Is there nothing like the Baker Act in her state of Minnesota where she can be involuntarily committed for psychiatric examination?

    What hell drug is this woman on I wonder the same drugs the GOP is on for whatever reson just SAY NO TO DRUGS

  73. Lisa Gentile December 13, 2012

    What is wrong with these people? Seriously, I don’t understand how you would not be embarrassed/ashamed to vote for her again. Fool me once . . .

  74. Julieann Wozniak December 13, 2012

    This is not exactly a new conspiracy theory, just one the nutters dust off when no one is paying attention to them. After all, the Michigan statehouse is poised to enact a law that bans the implementation of Sharia in that that, presumably to divert public attention from its repressive anti-labor and anti-women’s rights legislation. as if.

    1. patuxant December 13, 2012

      Didn’t those who came here on the Mayflower do so for religious freedom? So what is going on with people today who want to persecute others for the same reason? Sounds like a lot like BS to me!

  75. Downeast Diva December 13, 2012

    I can’t even read her loon comments, she is so ridiculous. What the hell kind of people elected this ‘woman’?

  76. Carlo December 13, 2012

    Thanks to our freedoms is that she is able to talk that crazy no-sense about our president. In many other countries they would either lock her up or pass her by the arms for treason. Thanks God for people like her because it gives comedians like Bill Maher plenty of material to work with and then we can enjoy a good laugh!

  77. patuxant December 13, 2012

    Alas, the woman got re-elected so her constituents are as off-the-wall as she is. You cannot reason to irrationality.

  78. Jesi Leigh Hovey December 13, 2012

    I would just like to say on behalf of all the sane, educated people in my district that I have no freaking clue how the rest of those living in my district are stupid enough to vote this–I can’t even call her a woman–“thing” into office. I mean, it shouldn’t surprise me, considering I live with the idiots and see how capable of stupidity they are every single day, but seriously…we aren’t all like this. I deeply apologize for her.

  79. Jesi Leigh Hovey December 13, 2012

    They vote for her because they’re as batshit insane, racist and anti-woman as she is, unfortunately. I have neighbors and even family members who are on the same page. It’s disgusting.

  80. Darryl Price December 13, 2012

    I am convinced that Michelle Bachmann does this for one reason and one reason only. So that she doesn’t have to actually do the work of a LEGISLATOR! I went to Govtrack to see what she’s done since she’s been in Congress and was amazed to find that she hasn’t done a friggin thing since she’s been in office. She’s only had 3 bills agreed to by the whole of the house and none of them substantive. Here they are:

    H.Res. 923 (110th): Recognizing the State of Minnesota’s 150th anniversary.
    Sponsor: Rep. Michele Bachmann [R-MN6]
    Introduced: Jan 16, 2008
    Agreed To (Simple Resolution): Jun 03, 2008

    H.Res. 789 (110th): Honoring public child welfare agencies, nonprofit organizations and private entities providing services for foster children.
    Sponsor: Rep. Michele Bachmann [R-MN6]
    Introduced: Nov 01, 2007
    Agreed To (Simple Resolution): May 14, 2008

    H.Res. 373 (111th): Expressing support for designation of the month of September as “National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month”.
    Sponsor: Rep. Michele Bachmann [R-MN6]
    Introduced: Apr 28, 2009
    Agreed To (Simple Resolution): Jul 29, 2009

    It’s all fine and good for her to spend her life throwing rhetorical bombs, but my question is, why do we as tax payers have to pay for it? Let her go to work for Heritage, Fox News or some other right wing chop shop. Maybe, despite her incendiary anti-government rants, she just likes sucking on government tit and this of course would make her the nation’s craftiest welfare recipient.

  81. acmavm December 13, 2012

    Freedom of Speech + Michelle Bachmann = B*tsh*t Crazy!

  82. Dianna S December 13, 2012

    She wasn’t elected to serve . She was elected to be a mouthpiece. At some point, she will fade away with the Sarah Palins of the world and someone with a true commitment to serving the people will be elected. We remember the Communist Blacklists of the past and gasp at “our” bigotry and idiotic behavior that cost many people their jobs and drove some to suicide. Being intolerant of others, no matter how much we differ, isn’t American. We came here for freedom to pray, speak, live our own lives without fear of being imprisoned or worse. Many Islamists want the same freedoms that we demand everyday. Through their efforts the extremists will cease to exist. Hopefully, through OUR efforts, our extremists will cease to exist. Jesus taught tolerance, acceptance, peace. The Christian extremists seem to forget that with their daily hypocritical holier than thou attitudes. This goes against everything that Jesus taught. One of the Commandments states that we should not bear false witness against one another, but this constant belief that our President is the enemy is just that. To consider the scriptures as only to THEIR benefit when it is warranted is ignorance of God’s words. To twist them or use them out of context is blasphomy. It would do Michele Bachmann and others like her to re-examine whince they come. Sixty years from now, we may be hanging our heads at the “witch trials” instigated by fear and the likes of her as we do over the Communist Blacklists of so many that were not Communists at all….just free thinkers. Is the Constitution only for the “rightous” few or is it for every American?

  83. jstsyn December 13, 2012

    If she had a job anywhere else she would be sent for observation or mental wellness sessions. She would be in front of a shrink faster than you can say Sharia law. Then she would be fired. Too bad the politicians that supposedly serve the people aren’t held to some standard of mental acuity. The woman is bat shit crazy.

  84. Sa Janes December 13, 2012

    Apart from the false accusations and slander against the president under the guise of free speech, somewhere among her constituency are no doubt several lunatics with guns that believe every word she says–one of who may very well attempt an act or multiple acts of violence.

    She knows this–it is obvious that her motives are borne of hate and an innately evil, twisted view of reality–and she is a sitting member of congress that wishes violence upon our elected leader.

    To me and I believe any normal, sane, thinking person, these reasons are more than enough to have her impeached.

    The fact that there appears to be no movement for her impeachment means either that she has a massive amount of personal and political support for her (in my belief ‘criminal’) efforts or she is just not important enough in the scheme of things to worry about–a laughably stupid moron.

    I’d go with the latter except for the fact that this monster actually ran for the presidency with GOP funding and 24/7 support from Fox News.

  85. Nina December 13, 2012

    Michelle Bachmann is totally insane!! What does she do? Spend all her restless nights thinking of ways to harm our President? She is a big, big liar—she proved that as a candidate during the Republican Primaries. She continues to lie big time and to try to besmirch our President and the Democratic Party. She needs to take an honest inventory (if at all posssible for her) and see just she and her party have badly damaged our standing in the world, our economy, and stolen from the middleclass to fill their pockets! Maybe she is trying to compete against Mitt Romney for “Biggest Lie of the Year” I find that woman totally out of line and disgusting. It is time for her to shut up and to be shut out of politics. She is treasonous and dangerous!!

  86. Nina December 13, 2012

    Michelle Bachmann is totally insane!! What does she do, spend all her restless nights thinking of ways to harm our President? She is a big, big liar—she proved that as a candidate during the Republican Primaries. She continues to lie big time and to try to besmirch our President and the Democratic Party in the most horrendous ways. She needs to take an honest inventory (if at all posssible for her) and see just how she and her party have badly damaged our standing in the world, our economy, and stolen from the middleclass. Maybe she is trying to compete against Mitt Romney for “Biggest Lie of the Year Award” I find that woman totally out of line and disgusting. It is time for her to shut up and to be shut out of politics. She is treasonous and dangerous!! She is NOT a leader, she is a disgusting woman with disgusting thinking and has no business representing Americans in Congress or any place else.

  87. Robert Blankenship December 13, 2012

    This bimbo is indeed demented. Lynda, it’s a shame persons like her inhabit our government.

  88. ChristoD December 13, 2012

    This woman is a certifiable IDIOT. I am starting to believe she was Joe McCarthy in her previous life. Lord help us to get her and her whacko conspiracy comrades out of the damn limelight.

  89. 1bythebrooks2 December 13, 2012

    I am from Iowa, as this ding-bat was. I have lived in Minnesota for 37 years. I’m ashamed for both states!

  90. Paul Higgins December 13, 2012

    Michelle has to continue with her wild and crazy comments in order to stay in the news or she will be forgotten for ever. Also, her shocking statements stirs up her supporters and they write her big checks. So, for all these reasons, she will always be creative.

  91. bertye brown December 13, 2012

    Just as idiotic as this woman is, the people who return her to office year after election year are just as much of an imbecile as she is. So she must be saying what the electorate there wants to hear or believes. For those who voted against her in Minnesota, keep the faith, maybe some of the brain dead who voted for her this time around will wake up from their comatose state by the time the next election comes around. One can always hope.

  92. Doug December 13, 2012

    And to think, she could have been President !!!!!!!

  93. frida December 13, 2012

    Some people are sick in their heads without knowing it. This woman is totally sick. After failing her bid and her nonsense of making Pres. Obama one term president, now she is jumping onto another crazy claim. Her husband needs to take her for a thorough mental check up!

  94. Dr. DanielA December 13, 2012

    In view of her abyssmal failure at the last GOP primaries, and positioning herself for a posible 2016 re-run for president, this Michael Bachwoman resorts to casting aspersions on the President and other honorable people she couldn’t match for nindignity and sagacity. This sarcastic approach wont take her any inch towards the White House, what a pity!

  95. Kenneth Stevens December 13, 2012

    How in the name of sanity do the people of Minnesota keep re-electing this person? Evidently she has adopted many kids and I’m sure does alot of good out of the political sphere; maybe Minnesotans need to do the country and the world a favor and ensure she does this full time.

    1. Keith Brekhus December 19, 2012

      Her District is the most conservative district in Minnesota. She underperformed Romney by 15 points, but the district is so right-leaning that still wasn’t enough to unseat her.

      1. Curtis Hermanson May 22, 2013

        yes her district is mainly well to do right leaning voters Its all about them and their cash and hate.

  96. robert December 14, 2012

    Bachmann is campaigning for the insane asylum. Depression always leads into manic behaviors and delusional outbursts. With medication, she can become normal again.

  97. Wilma December 14, 2012

    Wake-up folks it is true what Bachman is saying . Hillary not only signed what is basicly a law that would punish anyone who speaks out about the barbarism that is Islam ! She also stated to the UN that the U,S, would go along w/an International registration of all persons owning guns! What the Hell , has Clinton gone mad!? The Pres. insists that all CIA & police NOT refer to Radical Jihadist in reports or investigations so as Not to OFFEND Islam !!! Now I hear he is giving Egypts Radical Muslim Brotherhood 20 of our best Fighter Jets ! Now don’t tell me that does’nt REEK of Hatred towards Israel. Get your facts !

  98. a December 14, 2012

    I cannot belive this idiot got elected from my district. I voted for the other guy.

  99. Fubom December 14, 2012

    The only thing more idiotic and worthless than Michele Bachmann is the electorate that sent her to congress. Minnesota, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    1. Keith Brekhus December 19, 2012

      A small part of Minnesota should be ashamed. In 7 of the 8 congressional districts in Minnesota she would lose and in most she would lose badly. But her district is home to some of the most conservative parts of the state where fundamentalist megachurches sprout up between affluent communities of conservative white folks.

  100. Kenneth Heffley December 14, 2012

    Why don’t we put all republicans in straight jackets and a mussle over their mouths they are bringing this country down fast. Start with the kochs,rove,aldeson,norquist and all of congress including democrats.

  101. Robert Tardif December 14, 2012

    What was the percentage of voter-turnout in Bachman’s Bachman’s congressional district in the last election? If the Dems can’t get out the vote, they are destined to lose. In my opinion, the GOP is not worth much but they do get out the vote better than the Democrats.

    1. Keith Brekhus December 19, 2012

      The problem isnt so much voter turnout, its that she lives in a District filled with Republican nut jobs. Romney carried the district by 16-17 pts, so Bachmann underperformed Romney by 15 pts. But in an area where Romney wins 57-41, its pretty hard to defeat a Republican incumbent in Congress, but Bachmann is so crazy it almost happened anyway.

  102. E.l. Evans December 15, 2012

    AND they re-elected this idiot. When will people see the stupidity of the tea people? Fools, iillinformed, deceptive and just palin nuts!!

  103. Michaelj M. December 15, 2012

    She is like festering soe and won’t go away. She should have a phsyc test to see what she is really like inside. Maybe he man is giving her the wrong potion. She will be considered the biggest nut cases in the U S AND has alot of nutsy’s supporting her. Why???????

  104. Mimi December 15, 2012

    She is the poster child for mental illness–but I can’t feel sorry for her.

  105. Lin01915 December 15, 2012

    The media has to stop reporting anything this woman says. None of it has any validity and serves no purpose. Just don’t go to her press conferences, don’t report what she writes, and turn off Fox news and then maybe we can hear “news” that IS actually newsworthy

  106. syed salamah ali mahdi December 15, 2012

    Michele Bachmann is Her Master’s Voice, you know the Logo of the old phonogram? A dog listening attentively to what is coming out of the funnel type loudspeaker? Her Master is Israel and the voice dictating to her is of Likud Beituna!

  107. Sa Janes December 15, 2012

    Bachmann and the people who keep re-electing her are truly America’s most ugliest, ill-educated and patently offensive members of our society. And–even when you hold up a mirror for them to truly see themselves and the truth, they appear to be completely blind–blinded by hate, cowardice and ignorance.

  108. roland clark December 16, 2012

    She’s not a politician, she’s comedian commentary.. but the scarier than her are the people who put her back in office

  109. MVH1 December 16, 2012

    More from the lunatic fringe. She doesn’t operate in a vacuum. There are a whole bunch of lunatics voting for her every time and giving her boat loads of money.

  110. Jim Lou December 17, 2012

    What do you expect from someone like her? Why is this such a big thing?

  111. Richard December 18, 2012

    Bachman is such an idiot it’s even hard to talk about her. In fact I’m not going to lower my dignity to even consider her, except to say shame on you, tea crack pot party for offering nuts like Bachman, Huckabee and Romney as the best you have to offer as presidential nominees. Who are you going to nominate next, druyggy Limbaugh the entertainer who distorts anything to excite the right wing nuts.

  112. Michael Hill December 19, 2012

    This is proof positive that the people in Minnesota suffer from some sort of mental illness. Perhaps her district and the people in it can quarrentined from the rst of the country and given to Canada. They would fit in with the extreme right that now rules there.

  113. Barry Kirsch December 19, 2012

    “Sieg heil! Sieg heil! Sieg heil!”

  114. lana ward December 19, 2012

    Michele Bachman is telling the truth you Omuslim robots!! Omuslim DOES want Sharia law and he is going to take away our freedoms. He HATES the Constitution, and will get rid of it!! He is going to turn us into The United States of Islam. Get your heads out of your ass!!! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

    1. Keith Brekhus December 19, 2012

      Do you have any evidence to support your paranoia?

      1. Eleanor February 2, 2013

        If he does not support Islam, why would he state that if he had to choose, he would stand with Islam every time???Tell me why this is not scary coming from the president of our USA??

  115. Erik Nash December 20, 2012

    And she was re-elected to another term? Boy, Pennsylvania must be really, really desperate or really really retarded

  116. Lisztman December 21, 2012

    What does it take to get this woman out of the spotlight and out of Congress?

    Not only are the statements totally idiotic —

    But where in heck did this woman receive her “education”? I don’t care that these were spoken words, not written. I’m trying to understand what she thinks she’s saying. The “sentences” are contorted. Far too many subordinate phrases and clauses. Words, phrases, repeated within the same sentence. I have a tough enough time figuring out exactly what she’s saying. And, once I’ve parsed her language and figured it out — it’s a crock, through and through.


  117. Rvn_sgt6768 December 22, 2012

    Without gerrymandering rigging the results of the elections we would not have to put up with the likes of Ms Bachmann anymore nor would we be enduring this phony “fiscal cliff” drama. Time to take away the tools designed for no other purpose than to guarantee political gain for life. Washington needs to limit or eliminate lobbyists too. All these tools have been put into place to rob the public of its vote. Our political system is a sham and the end result is we have no representation in Washington and have not had any for many years.

  118. Jerry Brooks December 22, 2012

    She is one mentally confused female

  119. Kent December 26, 2012

    What else would could we expect from that, ah, (please excuse my descriptive language) toxic twatted, evil-insane, and mad-dog demented and denigrating, double-binding, dirtball, dumb-broad, devil bitch! Mad dog- devil bitch!

  120. jezze48 December 28, 2012

    Michele “Dumbell” Bachmann needs to shut up, she only showing her ignorance. She and Sarah Palin should go on a Circus Tour around the country.

  121. blueskies13 December 28, 2012

    Why do we even listen to such crackpots?! For me it’s just grim fascination. The right wing extremists are dangerous because of their fear of anything they don’t understand, or people who don’t look like them and believe what they believe. Religious fundamentalists are morons, regardless of what religion they follow. They have to be to have allowed that big honkin’ ring to be put through their nose. The ranks of those who believe in freedom FROM religion is growing on a daily basis. I hope that means that in a few hundred years the planet will have rid itself of the scourge that is religion, and the big scary man in the sky will be just another bedtime story like all the other fairy tales. For this I “pray”.

  122. Ford Truck December 29, 2012

    Why can’t someone sue this bitch for defamation of character? If in a public venue, I said something about my bosses that she has said about the Obama or Clinton, or other Dems, I would be fired, and sued. Without any proof, she goes around spouting lies and hate, and there are Americans that are so stupid they believe her.

  123. Chas December 29, 2012

    The idiots who voted for her are the real problem.

  124. Minell December 29, 2012

    She is back , for another two years, maybe next time she will be gone for good. Home with Marcus. I bet he is glad she is going back to Washington. Sweet

  125. Raven Alexander January 2, 2013

    After reading so many comments the realization is that there is a fear of the possiblity exists that she may be absolute correct. Many times people don’t want to believe the truth (ex. someone is cheating on them or are married already, for example). Fact-finding missions and/or inestigations may prove that she is on the right track or at least heading in the right direction.

    Raven Alexander

  126. Cleia Cavalcanti January 2, 2013


  127. Michael January 2, 2013

    God help the United States, with dangerous lunatics like Michelle Bachmann in the House of Representatives.

  128. Michael January 2, 2013

    Tragic, almost beyond belief, that an obvious sufferer from delusional mental illness such as Bachmann can get not only elected but re-elected.

  129. Michael January 2, 2013

    I wonder how, Bachmann justifies to herself, in her own “mind”, telling such colossal, blatant and obvious lies?

  130. Hilma Mcneil January 2, 2013

    I did not realize this woman was such an imbecile. Where does she get all this trash she’s spouting. Was she speaking to a live audience and did people actually sit and continue to listen to her after the first sentence

  131. Up north January 2, 2013

    And this lady wanted to be President? Sad for her and for the nutty rep’s that supported her

  132. Marv5 January 3, 2013

    Perhaps you should read UN Resolution 16/18 and see that she is telling the truth. Of course I’m sure that you would prefer not to investigate what this writer has told you.

  133. Rachel Johnson January 3, 2013

    I am from her district. I did not vote for her. I was hoping she would reflect on almost losing the election and keep quiet with the conspiracy theories. But no…………I can’t tell you why she keeps getting voted in. The best thing to do, I think, is let her rant and rave in a corner. The media shouldn’t give her the spotlight she seems to crave. They must think she is the comic relief in the Tea Party. (God know the rest of the Teapubs are not amusing.) She has no idea that she has become a one woman Tea Party side show spectacle. That most of America has nothing nice to say about her. Someday she will be voted out.

  134. faster January 3, 2013

    It’s true, she’s a thorough flake, but the alarming part of it is that her “constituency” is large enough for her to win an election. One flake is easily ignored; thousands of them aren’t. Who ARE those thousands?

    They come from her whacked-out cult, and the attitudes she spouts come directly from its pulpit.

    Apparently, in today’s America, you will be ignored if you’re just a flake, but if you’re a whacked-out flake, criticizing you becomes a virtual blasphemy, and an attempt to persecute her for her religion and deprive her of free speech. It’s all in the source of the flakiness, you see.

    You have to wonder WHAT is being preached in those places. The concepts of love and tolerance seem utterly absent, telling flat lies has become acceptable if it serves the cult’s “faith.” The best “carrot” these cults offer is the idea of being “pre-saved.” All your sins, past, present AND future, are forgiven. So you now can sin till you’re blue; you have your reserved seat in heaven. And sin, they DO.

    Seems we have a whole lot of hate and lies being approved by what qualifies (somehow) as a religion. And it even calls itself Christian. I know that they revere Jesus, and almost never even refer to God, and that it is Jesus himself they worship, while ignoring EVERYTHING he ever said. Handy, if you can pull it off.

    Apparently, they can, since a lot of people are whacked out the same way she is.

    I think we’re due for a few changes on religious rights. Not to do any persecuting, mind you, but giving them some accountability, in exchange for their religious liberties. Today, the word “license” applies to how our religions are able to behave. Licentiousness is NOT liberty; it’s an abuse of it. Time to draw a red line.

  135. AlfredSonny January 3, 2013

    Save money. Move Bachmann from the Congressional payroll to mental disability under Obamacare.

  136. AlfredSonny January 3, 2013

    Is Bachmann upset because Obama killed Bin Laden and jeopardized her plan to have al Qaeda take over USA?

  137. Constance Wilds January 4, 2013

    Bachmann must be running for president of the idiots who post tons of this type of lunacy on the internet.

  138. Jim Fox January 4, 2013

    Moderators- you refused to publish my earlier comment; are you, too opposed to freedom of speech??

  139. Jim Fox January 4, 2013

    Again, my links to evidence which MAY support her allegedly ‘lunatic’ assertions have been censored… are your readers to be denied all other possibilities? I’m not claiming these reports are 100% true but WHY will you not give your readers the chance to make up their own minds?

    1. pacifiqan January 4, 2013

      Jim, because you are delusional looking for free advertisement of regurgitations of a delusionary right wing part of the GOP.

  140. lancesephyr January 4, 2013

    Israhell is a parasitic leech on America and will not last as a nation given that it cannot succeed on its own but only as long as it can perpetually suck off the teat of the American taxpayers for free. This is a valid statement given that Israehell cannot sustain itself without leeching of WE THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS….Economically it is not viable that a racist apartheid state can continue to leech tens of billions of dollars off of America for perpetuity as Americans are fed up with Israhell coming like hobo with cap in hand year after year after year.
    Can Israel-Firsters not get it that America is broke and we need to look after our own needy who are in their tens of millions in the USA.
    Fact is that Israel has to prosper on its own without parasitically leeching off of Americans and that is something that that nation is incapable of notwithstanding that Israel understands that living is easy if it is off the hard work of others, namely, WE THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS!
    Fact is that once aid from America stops, Israhell is no longer capable of sustaining itself and if a nation cannot sustain itslef on its own, it will vanish from history and that is a reality that will face Israel notwithstanding all the obfuscation and misrepresentations of what Iran or Ahmedinajad said!!!
    Any readers wanting to re-post this article anywhere has my permission to do so as these “Never Again” Israel-Firster protesters that did Israhell’s Nutty-Yahoo bidding by demonstrating in front of OUR President’s campaign offices on September 29 are traitors to America who are corrupting America’s body politic by putting the interests of that foreign power called IsraHell ahead of America’s!!!!
    These Israel–Firsters are clearly showing that their loyalty is to a foreign state called IsraHell and NOT to America.
    They are trying to put a Holocaust guilt trip on Americans to get more Americans needlessly killed in useless wars for their PRECIOUS (said like Golem in the Lord of the Rings), Isra-Hell, in a way that will bankrupt the American treasury and put tens of millions of Americans out of work.
    As many ordinary Americans are now saying, these Israel-Firster traitors can go and shove it as We The American Taxpayers are sick of the Holocaust Industry being rammed down our throats so that Israel-Firsters can leech our dollars off of it for the benefit of both themselves and Israhell which is the biggest parasitic leech on We The American Taxpayers for fifty plus years in the amounts in the hundreds of billions of dollars if not trillions of dollars with no end in sight.
    Judaism is a noble religion and has given many noble values, principles, and precepts to all of humanity and we should not deny the Holocaust but pray for the victims of the Nazi’s including Jews, Russians, Gypsies,among others.
    The fact is though that it is sad that Hitler (who I unequivocally condemn), was so ashamed of his own Jewish Ashkenazim/Khazar/Berber origins that he murdered his own people in such horrendous numbers, and Israel-Firsters have ohhh so conveniently hidden or masked this fact for far too long!!!
    The Holocaust did happen and we should be sad about it and the millions of other victims of the Nazis and of Hitler but let’s not ignore the origins of those that did it either.
    The reality is that Alfred Rosenberg wrote the ideology of the Nazis – wanna guess what his religious background was?
    It’s sad that a person with origins from a great religion like Alfred Rosenberg came from designed Nazi ideology….google and verify fer herself, Israel-Firsters ’cause yu kin run but yu cain’t hide as sound items cain’t cut it no more…
    Incidentally, when was the last time that anyone here went to a museum on the terrible inhumanity of slavery?
    How about a museum on the horrible treatment of American-Indians/South American Indians?
    How about a museum on the scourge of colonialism and it’s horrible effects to this day on billions of human beings in Asia, in Africa, in North and South America?
    After all, these evils went on for centuries and affected billions of human beings all over the world while the Holocaust despite its terrible evils went on for a paltry four years between 1941-1945.
    Where are all those other museums to man’s inhumanity and why are we lambasted with the Holocaust all day and all night in every movie or tv show or news story and every museum on the street corner?
    Why have people but especially Americans not had an opportunity to go these other Museums on slavery or colonialism et et?
    I’ll tell you why!
    It is because other groups don’t try to leech money off the miseries experienced by their people and other fellow human beings, and they have not made a business industry to profit off of these horrible activities for perpetuity as Israel-Firsters have done!!
    It seems that Israel-Firsters want to hammer Americans and everyone else with the reality of the Holocaust that was instigated by a person of Jewish origin, namely, Adolph Hitler, on his own Jewish people, and they want to put the guilt of the Holocaust on each and every human being while hiding or obfuscating about the prominent role that people of Jewish origin played in this terrible event, and trying to portray it as the most terrible event that ever happened in human history. And all the while, they leech money of it in the most greedy immoral manner!!
    Guess what, Israel-Firsters?
    We Americans had nothing to do with the cannibalization of your people by one of your own, namely, Adolph Hitler, so it’s time to end the business industry that you have made around the Holocaust and trying to profit off the miserable end of millions of innocent Jewish people in the gas chambers of Europe at the expense of decent hard working Americans!
    What is so particularly despicable is that so many Jews were also killed by fellow Jews in World War II, and that Israhell-Firsters and their sock puppets remain silent about this fact or try to obfuscate about it as they promote this nonsense about “Never Again” in order to get Americans boys and girls fighting and dying in needless wars thousands of miles away and across oceans for a foreign power like IsraHell.
    Let me repeat the fact that Adolph Hitler was of Jewish origin as DNA analysis of thirty nine of his living relatives including a nephew shows and which has conveniently been ignored or hidden by Israel-Firsters for far too long!
    Additionally there were tens of thousands of Germans of Jewish origin that served in the German Army at all levels including at the staff level re. Colonels and generals.
    These Germans of Jewish origin were specifically defined as meschlinges by Germany.
    Many of these Germans of Jewish origin also participated in the murder of fellow Jews in the Holocaust or ignored that it was happening thereby making these Germans of Jewish origin equally complicit in the murder of fellow Jews.
    Additionally, within the German Army definition manuals, these German soldiers of Jewish origin of the Nazi war machine were also referred to meschlinges.
    This is a fact of history and readers can google the information or themselves by googling a variation of “Jewish soldiers of the German army in World War II” notwithstanding all the denials and obfuscation by Israel-Firsters.
    Tragically, it is horribly sad that so many millions of Jewish people were murdered by a person of Jewish origin like Adolph Hitler but as far as I am concerned, the terrible reality of the Holocaust and the four years that it went on has become a business industry and Israel-Firsters are milking it or all it is worth at our expense and the expense of other countries.
    Israel-Firsters can run but they cain’t hide no more notwithstanding all their whines that “We are the only victims”.
    This is the primary reason that I will never go to any Holocaust commemoration nor to any Holocaust Museum (which have sprung up all over the place), nor give permission for my children to go there despite the hammering on my head of this event which Israel-Firsters try to falsely portray as the worst event in human history’s when it does not even compare at all to the centuries of slavery and the destruction that it wrought on human beings, or the centuries of colonialism and the terrible pain inflicted on billions of people to this day through its after-effects which any of us can see in any third world country in any part of the world and on any continent.
    Unfortunately, for Israel-Firsters there is no longer any memorialization but rather a milking of the Holocaust for all its worth through commercialization by AIPAC Al’s like with this stupid “Never Again” protests being organized against American Presidents by Israel-Firsters.
    This is with nothing less than the objective of getting American boys and girls fighting and getting needlessly killed in an unnecessary war against Iran for the benefit of Israel-Firsters PRECIOUS (said like Golem in the Lord of the Rings), IsraHell and it’s pathetic little leader BeenYammerin’ Nutty-Yahoo….
    Frankly, any Israel-Firsters that go to this protest should be seen as the Jonathon Pollard clones and traitors to America that they are without any equivocation whatsoever, and I make zero apologies or saying that as I have zero tolerance for the Jonathon Pollard clones that have corrupted America’s body politic for a foreign country like Israhell….
    This nonsensical “Never Again” event has become part of the Holocaust business industry to fleece Americans and put a Holocaust guilt trip on something Americans had nothing to do with given that if readers google “Hitler and DNA Analysis and Living Relatives’, they can verify for themselves that Hitler had Jewish origins himself notwithstanding the hysterical efforts by Israel-Firsters to deny or mask this fact and that Jewish people were figuratively cannibalized by one of their own and are now doing their best to do a “Hide Hitler’s Jewish origins” by doing a “Never Again” protest.

    Hitler ‘had Jewish and African roots’, DNA tests show
    Adolf Hitler is likely to have had Jewish and African roots, DNA tests have shown.
    Saliva samples taken from 39 relatives of the Nazi leader show he may have had biological links to the “subhuman” races that he tried to exterminate during the Holocaust.
    Jean-Paul Mulders, a Belgian journalist, and Marc Vermeeren, a historian, tracked down the Fuhrer’s relatives, including an Austrian farmer who was his cousin, earlier this year.
    A chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1 which showed up in their samples is rare in Western Europe and is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.
    “One can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised,” Mr Mulders wrote in the Belgian magazine, Knack.
    Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of Ashkenazi and 8.6 per cent to 30 per cent of Sephardic Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.
    Knack, which published the findings, says the DNA was tested under stringent laboratory conditions.
    “This is a surprising result,” said Ronny Decorte, a genetic specialist at the Catholic University of Leuven.
    “The affair is fascinating if one compares it with the conception of the world of the Nazis, in which race and blood was central.
    “Hitler’s concern over his descent was not unjustified. He was apparently not “pure” or ‘Ayran’.”
    It is not the first time that historians have suggested Hitler had Jewish ancestry.
    His father, Alois, is thought to have been the illegitimate offspring of a maid called Maria Schickelgruber and a 19-year-old Jewish man called Frankenberger.

    It is for a reason that she behaves like a bimbo. Her speech appeals to her electorate and that means votes. She is fighting for her job. It is economic gain for her, and pleasurable noise to all the bigots who follow her.

    …. America’s commitment to Israel has never wavered under Zero’s “administration” ….

    In your dreams, maybe, it didn’t.

    …. the decimation of al Qaeda during the past four years hardly squares with Congressman Bachmann’s observation Zero’s every move is designed to “lift up the Islamists ….”

    I doubt Zero’s stumble-bumming around al Qaeda reaches the “reduced by 10%” definition of “decimation.” Used in this instance — as it usually is, by the semi-literate propagandist, polemicist and/or pamphleteer whose name appears above, as if it is synonymous with “devastation” but which it is not.

    And meanwhile under said scraping and bowing al-taqiyya-astute self-declared “murtadd” muslim’s managed stumble-bumming the entire middle east and Afghanistan and Pakistan and elements of the muslim populations of every country – our own included – in which there are such – are uplifted by every movement of the muslim messiah’s mouth.

    My guess is that some day in an American History class people like her, Palin, West, and other Tea Party freaks will leave students in utter disbelief. Not that these politicians so badly distorted facts but that any of their fellow Americans could be so poorly informed, so stupid, so biased that they would actually give them a share of our government. I know people who used to admire the US that are now viewing our nation with great alarm. It is scary!

  147. weberebe January 7, 2013

    1. Eleanor February 2, 2013

      I guess abortion is the protection of women that was so on the democrat platform this year. What is happening as we post is rather scary for an old lady who has had the priveledge of having all the freedoms of the past. When our military is being taught that the right wing people are terrorists, what does this say for freedom??? Next we will have even the average citizen afraid to have free opions that do not co incide with those in the left.

      1. Sierra111 February 3, 2013

        Our military is NOT being taught that the right wing people are terrorists! That’s totally ridiculous! However, there are a very FEW right-wing people who radicals and might create violence in this country. Not everything on the Internet is true!

    Here is a list of Republicans who are not fake Conservatives, they are not RINO’s or Neo-Cons.

    They’re all pro-USA-pro-USC, pro-States-citizens-Rights, pro-limited-Federal-Govt, as laid out in the USC.

    Only they and others like them can save our country from the ravages of the Leftists, Liberals, Democrats, RINO’s, Neo-Cons,

    Federal Reserve, Wall Street, Mega-Mass-Media, Industrial Complex, Corporate Oligarchy, their Lobbyists, WDC Collusion !

    Rand Paul, Steve King, Mike Lee, Louis Gomert, Lou Barletta,
    Tim Huelskamp, Justin Amash, Devin Nunez, Mike Pence,

    John Kasich, Scott Walker, Sheriff Joe, Marsha Blackburn, Kelly Ayotte, Nikki Haley, Deb Fischer, Jan Brewer, S-Martinez,

    and many more like them are the real pro-USA-pro-USC deal !

    M-Bachmann is decent in alot of ways and is valuable-useful-needed for those things, but she’s too much for wanting to play into the contrived-hyped-up-unnecessary overseas military intervention.

    As opposed to focusing more on a massively superior home defense-based military build-up, as is needed-necessary to meet actual and potential threats, such as a EMP defense shield. MB needs to be more liker the others in the above list who are not Neo-Cons.

    Maria Cantwell is a very decent Democrat on fighting against the Federal Reserve Wall Street Lobbyists WDC Collusion Corruption issues !

    MC is probably way too liberal on alot of other important issues though.

    The way that Harry Reid won his Senate seat seemed crooked with union collusion, same for Obama , who didn’t win 1 voter-ID swing sate, there’s something very suspicious about that.

    If the fillibuster rule were to change the Democrats will just be able to completely-utterly-bankrupt-destroy the country so much faster, with no time left to stop them !

    M-Romney “for-whatever-reasons” threw the race in the last-few-wks after he wasted the trending-unpopular-Obama in the 1st debate, showing BHO for the “fake-phoney-fraud” that he really is !

    All he had to do was want to win, prepare and do well in the last 2 debates, rally the country behind him with some well planned, consitent, continuous, pro-USA-middle-class-populist-rhetoric.

    Invoking Reagan’s win over the unpopular J-Carter, but M-R wasn’t really in it to win it !

    This scenario either having been pre-planned out to end that way from the beginning or having been ordered on M-R after he won the 1st debate,

    or deciding on his own somewhere along the way in the campaign that he needed-wanted-to-not-win and to throw the race towards the end !

    What a disgrace the Republicans have become. The world is watching. Since Palin/McCain they can’t get enough of laughing out loud!!!! So much for white supremacy….

  167. Bill McKenzie January 24, 2013

    >That attack was so far over the line that fellow Republican John McCain
    That’s using Republican in very loose terms, and puhlease like he doesn’t “cross the aisle” at every single possible chance he gets. John McCain is the left’s best friend as far as anyone can tell.

    >Of course, the United States’ commitment to Israel has never wavered under the Obama administration

    This supposed to be serious journalism? That’s hard hitting for sure. Okay, maybe on paper we haven’t waivered, but snubbing the Israeli leader at every chance including refusing to meet so he could go meet with Whoopi, and telling him he doesn’t know what’s best for his own country hasn’t exactly put Obama in the “friends of Israel” camp.

    “any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law.” It calls on states to take measures “consistent with their obligations under international human rights law, to address and combat such incidents.”

    It’s called boiling the frog. Sure, we’re not advocating that international law trumps local law…..today.

    Bachmann is no genius for being able to read between these lines, a child could do it. But she is one important thing the article wrongly accuses her of not being — correct.

  168. John January 25, 2013

    Why is it that no one even considers for a moment, based on the continued attack on our personal freedoms, the constitutional division of powers, and American greatness in general that maybe, just maybe, she is absolutely correct?

    Obama is a maniac, and Hillary Clinton is an unhinged martinet; both are Alinsky acolytes born from the darkest parts of the horrible Chicago machine. One has hidden his entire past from everyone and no one seems concerned (on the left), the other has a history of law breaking and let’s not forget the FBI files in her closet (read: paranoid like NIxon, enemies lists).

    Again, why is she an idiot? She is/was a very successful tax lawyer, what about you geniuses?

    When I read others, like “Lynda” below, writing statements like, “she should be put away in a dark place…” Gee, I dunno, seems like pure Stalinism to me, which fits if you think the current administration is just peachy.

    1. Pith_n_Vinegar February 11, 2013

  171. bchrista January 26, 2013

    I really don’t know if there is a law against what Michele Bachman is doing and if it is an issue that you could take someone to court about, Hillery Clinton is an outstanding lawyer in her right so she should know more on that. However, seems that Bachman has stepped over the line repeatedly and someone has to bring her to her knees, I mean she’s accusing Hillery of sponsoring a treasonist policy and that is blasphomy, she is also casting rebuke and doubt about Hillery’s ability to function in the best possibile way to perform her duties, I’m sure a lawyer could formulate a very good defense and have the court silence that bitch. As it has been stated before the people that elected her should be ashame of themselves for voting her in or if no other person qualified they should have marked their ballet none of the above.

  172. bchrista January 27, 2013

    In response to Dennis Paul Habern you can agree with that asshole Bachman, however, how many times do you travel over seas in a year 2 – 3 – 4- or more times how would you like it if you and your family were on vacation and all of a sudden someone scoops you up and you wake up in a dark dank room and you have no idea where you are or what’s happened to your family, well friend think about how someone else would feel if it happened to them and it has because those fanatical asshole don’t need much to set them off, the news abounds with people disappearing and no one knows what happened to them, after someone insulted Islam. It’s nice to be sitting here under the safety and protection of the Uniter States Government, but what about people whose jobs take them overseas and they don’t have that protection and they are under the mercy of foreigners and all it would have taken was a little civility, when all it would have taken was a little respect for someone elses religon or faith it doesn’t take much to set them off, did we forget already what happened when there was talk about burning the Koran in Florida and how about Salmen Rashidi and his book, years after there’s still a bounty on his head. My understanding is that our Government is trying to spread peace all over the world so we can concentrate on rebuliding our country and if we take a Bush, Cheney approach, we will sooner or later be envolve in another war and Americas infrastructure cannot stand that, I understand that Republicans can’t go too long without a war but, they will have to wait until another Republican President gets elected so they can find an excuse to go to war. Hillery’s job is to protect our country, not to instigate another war and Michele Bachman job is to such a lollip pop handed to her by any Republican(LoL) If you get my drift.

  173. bchrista January 27, 2013

    Hey DPH since we’re on the subject about Muslins how about George W. Bush II it seems that while he sat in a school classroom reading to a group of children meanwhile Osama Ben Laden had sent his boys to grab four air planes and fly them into various targets in the USA and guess what bright boy Osama’s family was staying at the Bush ranch as guests of the Bushes and it was finally realized what had happened Bush had a team from the white sneak them out of the country back to their home I don’t think anyone can get any closer to someone than that ad I don’t remember anyone condeming Bush for his indescretions of being cozy with the enemy, and all this after his close buddy killed over 3000 Americans, and that’s a check you can take to the bank and the’ll cash it for you.

  174. bchrista January 27, 2013

    I don’t know what hole this fucking idiot worm persom that goes under the alias CAR slithered from but someone needs to grab him/she and along with the people on the list put forth on their post and throw in onedonewong, lana ward,cannistercook, and the rest of those unamerican assholes that have been posting lies on the National Memo and exile the to Texas, Minnisota, and Wisconsin and then build a high enough fence around the state so they can’t escape let them live in their state by themselves so they can’t contaminate anyone else with what ever desease that afflicts then and only allow them back to join the human race when they prove that they are cured of their lying, imagining that the president is out to harm them and face reality, that their uncontrolled association with the Tea Baggers have harmed the country. Unbelievable the names on that list they are the reason the country is so fucked up, tea baggers everyone of them.

  175. bchrista January 27, 2013

    I have been reading all the comments posted here and basicly everyone agrees there is something wrong with Bachman and that she needs help but, your are prescribing the wrong treatment for her, the problem with Michele Bachman is that she’s a frustrated woman, she needs someone to take her and give her a good fucking obviously her husband isn’t doing the job. a satisfied woman enjoys life and doesn’t have time to be bitter. A woman that has too much time on her hands and a neglected sex life are usually argumentive, rebellious, and confrontational and the longer they go without a good lay the worst they get and tend to lash out anyone they perceive may be the cause of their problem, in Hillery she sees a woman immeresed and contended in her job and since she’s not she strikes out at her, in Obama she sees a man who has a happy home life and a contented wife and then she looks at her own home life, probably a man that is a lousy lover and she has to strike out at someone and since she is a member of the Tea Party movement her antagonist is the President and his Secretary of Defence Hillery because of them they keep her too occupied and her home life suffers because she can’t relax. Somebody needs to force her to take a vacation, relax and spend some quality time getting laid and I feel she will approach her duties in a different light when she goes back to work, no more bitterness.

  176. Joe Whitchurch January 29, 2013

    I suppose we could ask if the POTUS opposes Sharia law in Dearborn, Michigan and when he says he does (like that’s gonna happen, LOL), perhaps the AP can remind him of the 10th amendment. But don’t mention it about merely enforcing federal laws in AZ and his threatened over-reach or threats he made to the State of WI over Walker. Yes, it would be lunacy to imagine the POTUS ever favoring Islamic sensitivities with his proclivities for his Judeo-Christian convictions. You know like on championing gay marriage or allowing Newsweek to refer to him as the first gay President and then later the same national/international news magazine referring to the POTUS as “the second coming” of Jesus Christ that “America wants but can he deliver” on their cover. But Bachmann is clinically paranoid and the AP writer is able to assess this of course. This is why half the country calls you the Pom-Poms media. Pro Obama Media – Pro Obama Media Sycophants. And I see some of the latter in the comments here. Glad to add diversity.

    Hooray, Michelle Bachmann, you just prove how ridiculous the thinking is in too many parts of the Republican Party. The Republicans say President Obama is trying to destroy their party but so far they are doing a good job of it all by themselves allowing nutcases like Bachmann dish out their conspirator theories. Wait until next year with elections and see how far you get with these nuts.

  179. richard January 30, 2013

    Conspiracy or no conspiracy only time will tell. But at least her attempt at alerting us to a conspiracy is at worse a false alarm but at best a wake-up call for DROWSY Americans. Anyway, me personally as an INFIDEL will never let my guard down. Letting one’s guard down may result in one facing consequences much more DIRE than two wide-body jetliners slamming into NY’s twin trade-towers with few thousand souls inside, which by comparison—with FUTURE unknown and UNFORESEEABLE events—may turn out to have been just a walk in the park.

    By the way she dreams of all these wild accusations, congress ought to call her batty. Her new name is batty bachmann. She reminds me of curly of the three stooges. She probably bats her head against the wall destroying what ever brains she has left and with her husband who looks like curly in someway helping her. What an idiot she is and what idiots are the people who elected her in.

    A great American.She is telling the truth.Liberals should wake up.

    Too bad we don’t have laws against lying in public! Bachmann could be charged!

    1. Annemb February 6, 2013

      Amen to that … except that it’s a pattern for other Repubs. Remember Romney & Ryan?

  184. Timothy Bartholomew February 4, 2013

    There is a difference between wanting to ‘decimate al quaeda’ and wanting to/trying to let the islamic mindset insidiously invade into our laws and judicial system. No person on their right mind would be ‘pro al quaeda’. But it’s not unreasonable to believe the latter if actions support it. She calls it as she sees it.

    1. Pith_n_Vinegar February 11, 2013

      Too bad the way she sees it is just a tad cray-cray.

  185. Ian Dowsett February 4, 2013

    apparently the GOP isn’t reassessing it’s nutjob positions as uniformly as many commentators have been imagining. i for one applaud the decision of this faction to go down swinging, insisting on medieval traditions while articulating its irrational fears over everything foreign or different. there is something noble about the decision to be who you are, and honestly express the inner you, right until the point you fall into unpopular irrelevance and disappear from sight

  186. dslocum February 5, 2013

    Hard to believe ANYONE would ever vote for this woman who is obviously mentally unhinged!

  187. Ford Truck February 7, 2013

    She is spouting clearly false, defaming lies about people she opposes. I don’t understand why she can’t be sued for making these statements.

  188. Derek Penner February 8, 2013

    Anyone who stands up against Islamic Fascism is a bona fide American hero.

  189. Dave Cohen February 9, 2013

    What an embaressment this moron is for the U.S. How can the G.O.P. justify keeping the bobble head around. You would think that even once she would say something of value, even by accident.
    Mind you she does make a lot of the other right wing nuts look intellegent…..no that’s not the right word.
    The only folks who like her are the comedians, SNL, and the Democrates.

  190. Pith_n_Vinegar February 11, 2013

    Michele Bachmann: not doing Christianity any favors.

  191. jstsyn February 22, 2013

    She should be committed so she can do no harm in her position of power. Congress should have acuity of mind tests for politicians. Especially republicans.

  192. jwerbock February 23, 2013

    There are two possibilities here, one, that MB is a professional politician pandering to a right wing base consisting of conspiracy theory addicts, or two, she actually believes what she says and is a classic conspiracy theory addict herself and is, like many CTAs, willing to go public with her condition.

  193. KINKERSNITCHET1 February 23, 2013

    She needs to tell her husband to give up his preoccupation with the gays and show her a little tender, loving care in the boudoir… or else get a handsome young lover.

    1. Suke Madiq July 29, 2013

      Maybe she is a closeted lesbian? She looks kind of butch!

  194. Christine Lund March 8, 2013

    Where do these nuts get their information? Is there no internet, libraries, schools or news in Alaska or is it all filtered through officials first? Bachman needs help. And they are complaining about healthcare benefits? They need a little extra mental healthcare funds up there since there’s so little being done now. Can you spell Wikipedia? Bless their souls.

  195. Well some of Obamas friends do teach shari law so what she is saying may be right on the mark ! One of Obamas friends said this ” I would gladly cut the right hand off of my own daughter if she stole ! If a woman needs stoning then stone her ! “

    1. Suke Madiq July 29, 2013

      The bible says to stone women for adultery… Its a Christian thing too!

  196. She has gotta be on crack ! Are yiou defending a black man ? Is that Jean Clelestin ?
    I heard and saw the man who is teaching this myself Silliman and to my face you guys out there had best not say I am crazy or a nut !

  197. disqus_CmPS82g3vc March 29, 2013

    Why doesn’t her family provide her with an intervention? Are they not worried that when her biography comes out with addenda citing all the crazy conspiracies, the whole family will be embarassed for generations?

    Or has the family already written her off?

  198. lana ward April 30, 2013

    Michelle Bachman is right . Obama is turning America into a muslim country. He was bought and payed for by the Saudi Prince and changing America is the way to be payed back. Don’t make light of it, start praying

    1. cgoldfinger May 5, 2013

      I am, that you don’t have children.

      1. lana ward May 5, 2013

        Sorry, I didn’t murder my babies. I know that offends communists like you

        1. cgoldfinger May 5, 2013

          Mmmm the whole wingnut package eh? Well, enjoy being a dinosaur as the world leaves you behind.

          1. lana ward May 5, 2013

            America started dying when the Supreme Court said it is legal to murder babies. We are terrorists

          2. Suke Madiq July 29, 2013

            Women naturally abort zygotes all the time, so God is the biggest murderer communist according to you!

          3. lana ward July 29, 2013

            God made us, he takes us for a reason.

  199. Jon M May 1, 2013

    whats crazy are the people in her district that keep voting her in office. Cant help but think her constituency are a bunch of kooks.

  200. atc333 June 14, 2013

    In my humble opinion, Bachmann should run again for President, with Sarah Palin as her VP. That would be a ticket made in Radical Right GOP Heaven.

  201. Dick Brandlon July 30, 2013

    The weakness of our present state of democracy is that someone like this, given enough money, might become the president. Thanks to the right-wing Citizens United decision, money is speech, corporations are people and people are irrelevant.

  202. Lynda Groom August 4, 2013

    That woman is an idiot.

  203. mkrause September 3, 2013

    Obama’s executive orders show a disregard for the property and other rights of US citizens, especially white, Christians/Catholics. Clinton & Obama previously tried to appeal to the United Nations to criticize the United States. One can only surmise the Clintons plus Obama see the US as a treasury from which to fund their international initiatives for ‘people of color’ & Muslim causes, from which they hope to take very large commissions & fees.
    Aren’t the reverse ‘Archie Bunker’ lines taught to Black & Muslim supporters interesting? (for example, Lynda’s & the following 4 comments below.)
    One of Obama’s most memorable lines was criticizing Congress for being ‘lazy’, a line he believes was used against blacks in the US.

  204. Timothy Dolan September 23, 2013

    Why is her district constituents electing this idiot? http://www.politifact.com/personalities/michele-bachmann/

  205. yodalynx October 7, 2013

    Bachmann is the Lindsey Lohan of politics. Her comments are laughable if not down right paranoid schizophrenic. If the good people of Minnesota finally decide they have had enough of her incompetence, she will most likely disappear from the political scene altogether…if the Republican Party is truly wanting to get back on the right track – they want to avoid this “train-wreck”.

  206. tonyo26 October 16, 2013

    If you think this bitch is crazy, how crazy are her constituents?

  207. willam jackson December 20, 2013
