Ted Nugent: Obama using health care reform and IRS to start a race war, just like the Nazis

Published

on

Rocker-turned-conservative activist Ted Nugent declined multiple invitations Monday by talk show host Dennis Miller to back away from his comparisons of the Obama administration to Nazi Germany.

Nugent offered a non-apology last week for his widely condemned comments referring to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel.”

Miller said Obama may be “a horribly inept civil servant,” but he didn’t understand how Nugent could breeze past his racist comparison and then refer to “jackbooted thugs” in the White House.

“(Obama’s) just a guy in a tollbooth who keeps giving back too much change to people and, you know, I’ll be glad when he’s out of there, but he’s not a Nazi,” Miller said. “I think about the 6 million Jews rounded up and thrown into ovens and then I think about a guy who’s mismanaging the country, but God, it’s not within a million miles.”

Nugent said he didn’t believe Obama was, in fact, Adolf Hitler, but Miller continued to chide him for making Nazi comparisons.

“Do what you want, Ted, but that’s what you mean by that,” he said. “I think you mean Nazis unless there’s some goofball jackbooted thugs I don’t know about in a fictional piece, but I think that’s the reference, and they’re not like that, they just stink at running an economy and they’re a little soft on world terror.”

But that sent Nugent off on a rant.

“I just don’t agree at all,” he said. “There was an incrementalism to what happened in Germany and other places historically, where they came in slowly, and they started, you know, the power struggle between the different races, and the power struggle between different elements of society, and they incrementally worked their way in.”

Nugent cited the Affordable Care Act and the alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups for additional scrutiny as his proof.

“I really believe that what we see with the IRS can be compared accurately and historically to the early maneuvers of people like jack booted thugs, like the brownshirts,” Nugent said. “I really believe that and I think that you are being too soft on them.”

Miller told him they disagreed on this point, but Nugent continued.

“I think he really wants to destroy America,” he said. “I think he wants to follow the Saul Alinksy Rules for Radicals book, destroy our economy, have a — I can’t even think of the term right now — but the war between the haves and the have nots, when the haves have because they try really hard and the have nots don’t have because they don’t try as hard.”

Trump refusing to pay New Mexico security and barricades — while trying to change the state from blue to red

Published

on

President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.

Published

House investigators have "recent evidence" of witnesses working to coordinate their testimony before Congress, a Democratic congressman revealed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.

"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."

"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is looking for a defense attorney to represent him.

This report comes after Giuliani said last week that he would not seek legal representation unless he believed he needed it.

Giuliani is currently under criminal investigation for the scheme he apparently helped facilitate in the Ukraine, where Trump withheld military aid in the fight against Russia while demanding their leaders investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.
