GOP Congressman Who Said Republicans Need To Be More Like the Taliban Now Says Obama Causing Unemployment On Purpose

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

American Taliban.Texas GOP clown Pete Sessions last made the news when he suggested the doomed Republicans become more like the Taliban. As the modern Republican is already a fundamentalist nut who buggers little boys, hates science, fears women and constantly fantasizes about being killed for/by God, the only thing left was for the remaining wingnuts to move into caves, with their tea bags and their goats. And this may well have happened, as only 21% of Americans reachable by telephone now admit to being Republican. Anyway, now Pete Sessions is saying Obama is intentionally (and magically) causing both unemployment and a decline in the stock markets. True, maybe?!

Sessions told The New York Times that the administration intends to “diminish employment and diminish stock prices” as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy.

And he asserted that the Obama agenda is “intended to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it.”

Please note that Sessions is not just another mouth-breathing brain-damaged-at-birth congressman from Dallas who loves to hear himself say weird things — Pete Sessions is the mouth-breathing brain-damaged-at-birth congressman from Dallas who loves to hear himself say weird things who is also chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. You know, the people charged with defending and winning House seats for the GOP.

It’s a great premise, of course: Nobama is personally causing millions of people to lose their jobs, through the witchcraft known as “The Lagging Indicator” and the Time Machine known as “job loss has been steadily increasing for 16 straight months now,” otherwise known as the “First 100 Days.” By demonically taking away the livelihood of working Americans, “The One” will …. somehow …. OKAY WHAT IN THE FUCK POSSIBLE POLITICAL BENEFIT COULD COME FROM MAKING MILLIONS OF VOTERS JOBLESS? HELP US OUT, PETE.

Let’s move on, to the next premise of this Conspiracy: The Obama Administration is also, concurrently, engaged in a sinister decline in stock prices. This will …. oh never mind, who even knows. The only problem with Al Barack Hussein’s “dark” magic against the stock market is that the S&P 500 is at a four-month high, even with today’s 1.6% drop.

And this is how Nobama creates his Socialist Dictatorship.

    And what splendid corner of Texas does the distinguished Rep. Sessions come from?

  • BlueStateLibtard

    I’m not Pete, but I’ll help you out. Maybe by making us all lose our jobs, Obama would force many more of us to enlist, that way we could invade more countries and return his Muslim crown to him?

    So the cure for our economic woes would be lowering the tax rate on the highest earners?

    You see, Micheal Steele is Obama’s Bismarck, so it all makes sense. It is all strategic, baby!

    NOBAMA is also responsibly for stealing alla my teefs outta my mouth!! He don’t want me bein’ responsible for chewing my own food and wants the gub’nent to do it instead!!

  • hobospacejunkie

    I’m glad somebody has figured out Obama’s game. Perhaps now we can get back to the fiscal responsibility of the W years.

    Really, its time to get out the butterfly nets and straight jackets for anyone who has one of those Talibangelical Republicans in their family. I’m hoping here in Oklahoma mental hospitals will offer a “2 for 1 special” on committing the crazies so it doesn’t bankrupt too many families around here. We need to commit Republicans for their own personnel safety and that of the general public. Lets do it for PUBLIC SAFETY!

    To recap:
    To R’s leadership incompetence and destruction of the Constitution are wholesome American values and failure to use a secret ability control complex economic indicators to improve said indicators is a sneaky socialist conspiracy. A party of intellectual titans.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Oh, hell. I thought that was Jeff Sessions from AL–because all old white Southern racists pretty much look alike.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    A Christian Taliban society is exactly what the founding fathers had in mind. Don’t you know nuttin’ ’bout yer Murcan histry? Kudos and skittles, Rep. Sessions.

  • rambone

    It’s a cunning plan, Barry.

    I always felt that the biggest problem with conspiracy theories was actually developing the theory. Here, it seems that Rep. Sessions has done away with that minor detail and just shouts random allegations and leaves it the observer to do the heavy lifting.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=313506]Hart88[/re]: If that’s the case, then he needs a National Dunce-cap Platform ASAP!

    So, people elected him? Oh wait, Texas. Nevermind….

  • snideinplainsight

    Cupcake – duck. Duck – cupcake.

  • SmutBoffin

    Not that I truely feel the need to explain for The Esteemed Cockmongler from Texas, but I think that Sessions is attempting to portray Barry as someone who is deliberately precipitating an economic/social crisis to fire up a little Marx-o-Muslin Rev’lution. I know, I know, that’s retarded, too, but Real America gets a kick out of it..

  • 51dimes

    Perhaps if we’re unemployed, we will be more likely to hang around the basketball court in the park, waiting for Our President to come challange us to a pick-up game. Then, through his grace on the court, we will be vote for him, regardless of our lack of jobs, houses, food, or shirts.

  • finland

    oh come now msr. layne don’t be daft. of COURSE the point is to cause high unemployment and make the stock market 0 so that the people will be so mad with frenzy that they will accept nobama as the new fuhrer of the USSSSUASA (i think that’s how it’s gonna be spelled).

  • Cape Clod

    Ah, he’s from Dallas. So, this is W’s representative to congress.


  • qwerty42

    I’m thinking there is some rule the Republicans have that says they need to have goofs in leadership roles. There is some greater purpose in having so-called “adults” hold childish, paranoid beliefs — somehow it will lead the rest of the country to see them as the Heroes of the Republic they see themselves to be. I’m just not seeing it, myself. but I’m probably a fascistic socialist atheistic muslin or something. so …

  • Come here a minute

    Remember folks, this is the loony Sessions. The normal one is Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who was denied a lifetime appointment as a U.S. Circuit Court judge by the Republican Senate Judiciary Committee in 1986 (for racism), the committee in which he is now the Ranking Republican member.

    Sessions is from that part o’ Tex-ass where “guv’mint” is baaaad. You know, that part where everyone does their own air traffic control and inter-state highway construction. Oh yeah, and meat inspection.

  • IonaTrailer

    Or what the fuck – Alabama. Same smell.

    Oh GOd, we can’t get rid of Sessions soon enough…as if there weren’t reason enough to hate him, thanks to Tom DeLay’s lovely redistricting, he was pitted against Martin Frost, a senior Democrat (and the only Jewish member of the TX delegation) in 2002. The North Dallas wingnuts chose Sessions. However, I cannot be held responsible for Pete’s craziness, as I am represented by Rep. Marchant – a slightly less crazy Repub.

  • Nurtz

    Sessions represents the Gray Stayda Tecsus’s 32nd district — Dallas,
    Richardson, Irving, Oak Cliff, and some smaller areas. (Dallas
    county is actually split up into several congressional districts;
    the 5th, the 3rd, the 24th … I think I’m forgetting at least one

    Sounds like ol’ Petey just needs a ‘Sexytime’ session on the beach with a hot Latino priest.

  • nappyduggs

    Ok, so let’s all cross one of our eyes and look at this from a different angle- just think that not even fifty years ago folks like Sneaky Petey Sessions wouldn’t have given Obama credit for anything more than maybe having a huge pernis that he used to rape up the white wominns. Now, a black man CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE. P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S., betches. Suck on it.

    Actually, I overlooked the funny part of this the first
    time that I read it.

    Sessions says that Obama is causing the recession and
    job losses that began a year before his inauguration.

    I guess he is some sort of mysterious master of the magic

    Does being a Republican elected official named “Sessions” automatically make you an idiot?

    No, you don’t need to be named “Sessions.”

  • zenferret

    So is Sessions dumber than the black dog Bo Obama? Or am I confusing threads again?

    It is so fitting that he’s from Dallas since he looks like J.R. Ewing.

    “The NRCC’s chief spokesman, Ken Spain, defended the allegation that Obama – who has repeatedly vowed to help the economy recover – secretly welcomes a slump in employment and investments.”

    None of this would have happened if McCain could get us into a few more wars and been able to increase the size of the military and useful economic activity of blowing stuff up and then issuing infrastructure rebuilding contracts.


    [re=313520]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Pete and Jeff Sessions are actually 1st cousins. And, coincidentally, father and son.

    “And this is how Nobama creates his Socialist Dictatorship.” Please – that’s NATIONAL SOCIALIST Dictatorship.
