Dana Rohrabacher Is Moscow's Mule

[Moxley Confidential] The Huntington Beach congressman falls smitten with Russian strong man Vladimir Putin

(I'm guessing Rohrabacher's hug-a-Nazi line wouldn't have gone over so well with the Tea Party crowd if he had admitted Reagan, his hero and White House boss, practiced the theory.)

At this point, the list of the congressman's boneheaded moves is approaching legendary status: Claiming vibrant democracy would result from George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq; hailing Arnold Schwarzenegger as California's fiscal savior; repeatedly hiring Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, an unrepentant molester of seventh- and eighth-grade boys, as his congressional aide; using public funds in 2007 to "solve" the Robert F. Kennedy assassination that was solved 39 years earlier; backing ally Dave Garofalo for Huntington Beach mayor before the man's corruption conviction; backing Mike Carona for sheriff before that man's corruption conviction; predicting Chris Cox would be a superb chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission before the man lead the agency into horrific scandals; lobbying on behalf of the Taliban as pro-democracy in the mid-1990s, when the terrorist group harbored Osama bin Laden; and claiming no anti-immigrant animus while calling Mexicans "Pedro" and "wetbacks."

But like the proverbial broken clock that accidentally finds the correct time twice a day, the congressman got something right at the Tea Party event: Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who revealed the extent of government snooping. "He tipped off the American people as to what was going on," said Rohrabacher, who refuses to label the revelations treason. "They want to keep a record of every phone call you have ever made and will make. That's baloney! That's garbage! That's tyranny! That's totalitarianism!"

Putin must be tickled he has grabbed Rohrabacher's affection. To this day, the Russian leader speaks fondly of the old Soviet Union, one of the most oppressive systems in world history. It's no secret he climbed the ranks of the KGB by mastering the surveillance of his fellow citizens.

"This fascinating and erroneous assertion underscores the extent Rohrabacher is smitten with Putin and Russia. He suggests the fascist Russian president, notorious ex-KGB thug, looter of billions of dollars of his country's assets, unapologetic enemy of individual liberty, police-state proponent and fan of the anti-American antics of Hugo Chavez is a better protector of American security from Islamic terrorists than President Barack Obama".

A Community Organizer, I might add. What is this man doing in the presidentcy of the USA and where did he come from? A friend of Bill Ayers a known terrorist.

What me worry? Do Nothing Dana has done nothing for 26 years in Congress.What more do you expect. Has Do Nothing Dana worked for a living or tried to meet a payroll.  He went surfing instead of serving in the military. Who went to lead the Taliban in Afghanistan, none other than Do Nothing Dana. He has been on the federal dole longer  than most people. In addition he gets a $150,000 pension courtesy of the American taxpayers. He is not a conservative, as he has not read or practiced the political thought as reflected by Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.

Moxley, you take issue with ghosts. Why don't you expose our liberal, snivel servants , the majority are elder, white men who pull down a good chunk of tax dollar change for supposedly maintaining the stability of society. If you believe this is a silly endeavor, then take a hard look at OC's list of county entities. Here is a fun game; try to match the function of entity to its title.

Get with the new world order, Moxley. the conservatives are not the elderly white people of Costa Mesa. They are our newest competitors, mainly China's über rich who take the concept of communism to new heights. You beat the horse of another era where hippies posed as the enlightenment and the enemy were the stodgy, older, white men. US foreign competitors use their economic and political,power to sway the hearts and minds of our representatives to represent their interests over the interests of US populace. Putin just another dictator, Obama another president Lyndon Johnson with his similar bread and bombs policies. Moxley, how hard must it be to update US domestic and foreign polices with the policies of other major, global players?

OC's original Surf Nazi also co-sponsored the States' Rights to Medical Marijuana Act, and voted no in 2008 on more funding to Mexico for their narco war …

Just goes to show even someone equal parts corrupt and bat-shit crazy isn't all bad!

Since Barack Obama is spying on every Amreican and he has called Ed Snowden, a whistleblower a traitor, and since Obama is arming Al Qaeda illegally and has covered up his support for the Hitler Loving Muslim Brotherhood  (check the record Scott , the Muslim Brotherhood that Obama supports supported Hitler and Mussolini in World War II) and since Obama is the Best Republican President since Herbert Hoover in terms of his support for Wall Street Bankers that he just adores, like the soon to be jailbird Jamiie Dimon of JP Morgan.

       It looks like your cult-like worship of Obama and the real background of Obama himself makes both of you, OXY-MORONS!!!

     By the way, Scott, we looked closely with a new powerful electron microscope a at Obama's Birth Certificate and we found out he is not from Kenya, Hawaii, Indonesia or even Cuba.

       He was born in Bankistan!!!       Gerald Pechenuk, Larouche PAC at cities12345678@gmail.com        

        Bring on your attacks, Scott, I can't wait to hear your latest cock and bull stories!!

@tongue_twister_for_t Mmmmm. Ahhhh. Yummie! So refreshing! Now that I've had a taste of your pecan-flavored (read: nutty) Kool-Aid, I see what you're saying. Yes! Like Congressman Rohrabacher thinks: Vladimir Putin is definitely more concerned about protecting the USA than Obama! Say, if you've got 20 bucks, I'll show you proof the lunar landings were filmed on the Price Is Right stage in LA.

"...China's über rich who take the concept of communism to new heights."

Thanks for that. I forgot to take my irony supplement this morning.

@ethernotThat's right: a tragically warped, sly career politician known for his lies sometimes stumbles on a right answer.

@cities12345 Every thing in the first paragraph except the secret support for the MB is certainly true or partly true. Lesson? Just because the LaRouchies say it, it don't mean its not not true.

LaRouche was convicted of mail fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, and tax evasion, and was sentenced to prison for fifteen years.

Keep on truckin'!

@cities12345  Greetings again Gerald! How is life in the middle of Lyndon LaRouche-ville? Still digging to prove the Queen of England is the world's biggest narcotics trafficker? (You don't have to answer.) Given that you folks share Dana Rohrabacher's claim that climate change is an evil hoax by 98 percent of scientists, I'm not surprised that you would arrive to attack me. Alas, my pal, I won't take your bait to share with you my cock and bull stories, but I will say it's humorous that you assume I worship Obama. Surely you've studied elementary reasoning and know it's possible not to be a loyalist to the president while at the same time criticizing Rohrabacher for his lame political theatrics. Or, perhaps you don't.
