Judge Not Two ► Libertarian Logrolling
Here come the Judge

Welcome to Week Two of Judge Not. This week proves why it was necessary to spin Judge Nap off into his own series. In the last 6 days the Laughing Libertarian sent out — at minimum — 153 updates that I captured. 

NB: These are only those I caught. I am not at my desk 24 hours a day. One wonders how Judge Nap finds the time to do any work.

Judge Nap espouses the Libertarian viewpoint, which some people also call Randian, after Libertarian Social Security-taker Ayn Rand. Coincidentally, or not, President Obama gave his views on Ayn Rand this week in a Rolling Stone interview:

RS: What do you think Paul Ryan’s obsession with her work would mean if he were vice president? 

BHO: Well, you’d have to ask Paul Ryan what that means to him. Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we’d pick up. Then, as we get older, we realize that a world in which we’re only thinking about ourselves and not thinking about anybody else, in which we’re considering the entire project of developing ourselves as more important than our relationships to other people and making sure that everybody else has opportunity – that that’s a pretty narrow vision. It’s not one that, I think, describes what’s best in America. Unfortunately, it does seem as if sometimes that vision of a “you’re on your own” society has consumed a big chunk of the Republican Party.

I have often compared followers of Ayn Rand with selfish teenagers, so it’s nice to be in agreement with President Obama. With that said, let’s deconstruct what Judge Nap felt important enough to send out to his brain-dead followers this week:

Of course, AU H2O lost the 1964 election in a landslide because ‘Merkins thought he was too extreme and still do.

Judge Nap has his own YouTubery Channel for his own YouTubery.

One of Judge Nap’s big concerns this week was drones. He droned on and on about it.

Good ol’ Ludwig seems to be a hero of Judge Nap’s. What Ludwig and Judge Nap won’t tell you is that all taxation is redistribution of wealth. Previous generations saw the need to build infrastructure, going back to the earliest canals, before there were roads. Now, however, Libertarians seem to want the infrastructure to crumble, unless it can be privatized. Then they’ll take government funds to pay private companies to do the work.

George McGovern’s body wasn’t even cold when Libertarians tried to claim him as one of their own. McGovern was a Democrat and a Liberal and a Progressive and Anti-War. Don’t try to steal his legacy.

A surprising article to pass on, considering how much Fox “News” is in the tank for Mendacious Mitt Romney.

“Stop and Frisk” is a topic that’s starting to blow up. While Judge Nap doesn’t tip his hand, he appears to be against it.

Just as he is against the mythical “Nanny State.”

However, the NRA is still telling its brain-dead members that “Obama’s coming for your guns.”

Judge Nap is hoping Liberals will have buyers regret and vote for Mendacious Mitt.

Central planning? That’s a euphemism for Communism. Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

Thomas Jefferson also said, “Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.”

You sure do like to quote Jefferson a lot, doncha? Thomas Jefferson also said, “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

More Jefferson? Give it a rest, Judge. For every Jefferson quote you can find that supports your Libertarian views, I can find one supporting Progressive views. Jefferson also said, “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.”

Be afraid! Be very afraid!!! Of both cyber attacks and a White House powerful enough to stop them.

Some goofballs in other countries seem to support President Obama. Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

Annie get your gun!

Judge Nap should know better to pass on bullshit like this for many reasons. The Daily Caller is not a credible source of news and is the source of must Conspiracy Theories these days (if you discount Bully Boy Bolling). The Daily Caller is quoting Willie Brown, who admits he has no direct knowledge of such a conference call. The Daily Caller is referencing a conference call that included Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who President Obama disowned 4 years ago. Yet, a conference call implies that there were several, to many, participants and, if this were true, there would be more than one NON-participant who knows about it. Yet despite all these caveats, Judge Nap feels this is worth passing along to his brain-dead followers so he can connect the President to Reverend Wright all over again. Shameless scare-mongering! BE AFRAID! BE VERY AFRAID!!!

Preschool for very young children allows mothers to return to the work force. Of, would he prefer they apply for welfare?
If Judge Nap had one mantra this week, it was to blame President Obama for the attack in Benghazi, despite a lack of evidence and ongoing investigations. No sense letting facts get in the way if a story can be spun to smear the President.

The world is a dangerous place and President Obama is doing what’s necessary. However, at least he’s not starting any illegal wars, like the last guy.

Yet Mendacious Mitt keeps saying he’ll create 12 million jobs, while also saying the givernment doesn’t create jons. What’s up with that?

There were far more than 5 issues that one didn’t hear at any of the debates.

Judge Nap never comes right out and says he’s against the War on Drugs because that would make the Fox “News” viewers’ heads explode. However, knowing his Libertarian views, and that he passes along Photoshopped pics like this, one can easily guess his views on this topic.

Judge Nap loves to pass along poorly sourced stories, as long as they might smear President Obama.

Judge Nap came back to this issue over and over again all week long.

First of all: We don’t have a “government regulated and centrally planned economy.” Second: ‘Merka is still a capitalist country. Third: Just because something hasn’t worked previously doesn’t mean it can’t work.

The Judge Nap sitch-eee-ay-shun getting worse the more we learn about him.

Darrell Issa begins a new fishing expedition and Judge Nap is happy to see ‘Merkin tax dollars spent this way.

New Jersey? Will this put an end to Jersey Shore?

Oh the humanity!!!

“QUICK! How can I blame this on Obamacare?”

“QUICK! How can I blame this on Obamacare?”

“QUICK! How can I blame this on … Oh, wait!” One of those things that Judge Nap won’t admit is that religion and Libertarianism are diametrically opposed.

What bullshit. That’s why President Obama called him a bullshitter, and Judge Nap his happy to shovel Mendacious Mitt’s bullshit at his brain-dead followers.

All taxation is redistributive. The low taxes over the last decade for the top earners have not led to jobs, jobs, jobs, so that talking point is pure bullshit too. Nor will it necessarily lead to government dependence. Judge Nap shovels a lot.

What if we made truth matter again? Fox “News” would have to go out of business.

“QUICK! How many times can I blame this on President Obama?”

“QUCK! How many different ways can I blame this on President Obama.”

The TSA is the organization everybody loves to hate.

Lots of politicians float stupid ideas. Get back to us when the D.C. Council actually puts it up to a vote.

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

Libertarian is not “Left.”

What does the NYPD use for Muslim bait? Somebody ask The Falafel King Bill O’Reilly.

HAW! HAW! HAW! HAW! That’s historical hysterical.

Gas in ‘Merka has always been artificially low and Steven Chu recognizes that fact. One sentence taken out of context is not enough to use to smear President Obama, unless you are Judge Nap.

Try and stop him.

Then try and stop him.

Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

This was the Top Reich Wing Bullshit of the Week: The email merely quotes a facebook posting (and which was later deemed wrong) that a Al Qaeda-tied group had CLAIMED responsibility. I have noticed that a lot of people on facebook claim a lot of things. Should they all be taken seriously?

Then stop him, Judge Nap. Go ahead. I dare ya!!!

“QUICK! How can we blame confused email sent in the Fog of War on President Obama?”

“QUICK! I’m running out of ways to blame President Obama.”

TRANSLATION: I’ll be blaming President Obama for unconfirmed facebook postings.

TRANSLATION: I’ll give a one-sided report on these emails.

QUICK! I found a new way to blame President Obama, even though I don’t know what the truth is yet.”

WRONG!!! Let it be known that Judge Nap is not adverse to passing along information that turns out to be bogus.

Let’s give it to welfare recipients here at home.

Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

Which only adds to what Dubya built. Were you opposed to the Patriot Act, Judge Nap?

Are we taking bets? If so I say, “Never.”

TRANSLATION: “I just finished lying to Mike Huchabee.”

LOL If Ron Paul was so smart, how did he lose the nomination?

Enough of this guy already!

More of Wall Street should be held accountable. This is a good first step.

Don’t have a cow, man!


Forbes totally misrepresented what the President said, so naturally Judge Nap passes it along.

Judge Nap sent out a lot of these promotions during the week. Remember that Freedo,mWorks helped astroturf the nascent Teabaggers. Sharing a stage with dead beat Dad Joe Walsh is no honour, Judge Nap.

What the fuck does that even mean?

“QUICK! I found a new way to blame President Obama.”

Get out your hip waders. Judge Nap is shoveling more bullshit.

Gee thanks for that.

Hip waders time again.

“QUICK! How can I blame this on President Obama? He’s from Chicago, right?”

Judge Nap loves to pass on negative stories about the TSA, the organization everybody loves to hate.

Judge Nap keeps droning on about drones.

“QUICK! Who can we find to blame this on President Obama?”
If drones are bad for domestic police departments, why aren’t helicopters?

This is the biggest load of bullshit Judge Nap shoveled this week. Anything from Glenn Beck is automatically suspect, but Judge Nap has no problem passing it along to his gullible brain-dead followers.

Eminent Domain is just ‘Merkin Exceptionalism run amok.

You’ve got to be kidding?!?!?!

The Washington Free Beacon? You’ve got to be kidding.

Judge Nap has redesigned his moribund web site. Let him know what you think.

Note the picture. It’s used in a lot of stupid Right Wing and Libertarian memes, mostly by “Young Americans for Liberty,” a group that Judge Nap believes is share-worthy. Yet, there’s no reason that education should not be free and no excuse not to pay teachers more. These are not necessarily mutually exclusive ideas. Yet, there’s always enough money for war. What’s up with that?

The Federal Reserve is another one of Judge Nap’s hated institutions.


POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

Unless a Republican is in office. Then it’s considered treason. See: Dixie Chicks.

Where were you when Dubya was dragging the country into an illegal war in Iraq? Were you speaking out then, Judge Nap, or were you one of those who stood on the sidelines and kept your thoughts to yourself or, worse, egged the government on with jingoistic shouts of YEW! ESS! EH! YEW! ESS! EH! YEW! ESS! EH! YEW! ESS! EH! YEW! ESS! EH!

While Lee Atwater showed remorse on his deathbed, let’s never forgetAtwater is directly responsible for the likes of KKKarl Rove, whom your network keeps putting on the air without revealing he’s spending an estimated $300,000,000.00 to influence the 2012 election. In fact , one could even say that Atwater is responsible for Fox “News” and the way it lies to its audience. It’s truly ironic that you would pass this documentary on, Judge Nap.

If someone, somewhere, says something stupid, you can be sure that Judge Nap will pass it along to scare people.

I am a firm believer that the Constitution is a living document, otherwise Black folks would still be considered 3/5ths a human being. That’s what all those Amendments are about Judge.

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

So, send all those jobs to China as it artificially protects its economy. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

For years Fox “News” told its brain-dead audience that the president couldn’t do much about high gas prices. But that was during Dubya’s administration. Now that there’s a Democrat (and a Black one at that) in the White House, Fox “News” has been clamoring for President Obama to do something — ANYTHING — about the high price of gas. And, now Judge Nap wants you to believe that President Obama has dome something to lower the price of gas in Ohio and will do the same in the other swing states to get reelected. This is why Judge Nap is just another Right Wing liar who will float any conspiracy theory if it will harm President Obama. Libertarian? Only when it suits him to claim so.

See? Right Wing Talking Points without any proof whatsoever, as long as he can score points against President Obama.

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

Building and/or repairing crumbling infrastructure is not digging holes and filling them in.

I thought you were in favour of a free markets economy. Certainly you’re not making fun of this, are you?

If you really cared about national disgraces, you would not work for Fox “News,” which has been making shit up about Benghazi ever since it happened.

Don’t let Fox “News” tell you what to believe.

Yet, that has not slowed doen the pace of the crap you send out over facebook. What’s up with that?

I find it disgusting how Fox “News,” Judge Nap, and the rest of the Reich Wing have been politicizing the tragedy in Benghazi in order to attack President Obama. Furthermore, to use a parent’s grief to do so is beyond the pale, which means it’s business as usual for these MoFos. I’m willing to wait for the outcomes of the various investigations currently underway before I blame anyone, clearly Judge Nap made up his mind a long time ago based on Fox “News” slanted reporting.

Judge Nap sure likes to pass along quotes of long-since dead people.

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

While I am only using one, Judge Nap sent out several pictures of these bodies being returned to U.S. soil. It’s too bad that he didn’t consider how politicizing these events in Benghazi dishonours the memory of these brave Americans.

More politicizing from Judge Nap.

Oh look! It’s that same picture again used once again to make young Liberals look stupid all over again.

More politicizing of the deaths in Benghazi. Judge Nap, you should be ashamed of yourself.

More politicizing of the deaths in Benghazi. Judge Nap, you should be ashamed of yourself.

But, Judge Nap has no shame, as he proves by speaking in front of a FreedomWorks seminar.

Here’s his full speech for FreedomWorks, if you have the stomach for it. I wonder how much they paid him.

POLICE STATE!!! Be afraid! Be very afraid!!! More empty slogans for the empty-headed followers.

That’s it for this week. While I culled out most of the duplicates, that still left a lot to comment on. I may be sorry I ever decided take on Judge Nap’s idiocy. However, be sure to join us next Saturday for another exciting episode of Judge Not.
