Brainwashed Voters

May 20, 2015

GOP presidential candidates are being peppered by the media with confrontational questions concerning political positions along with meaningless hypothetical questions about going to war in Iraq. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, awash in controversy and scandal, refuses to answer questions and dismisses all allegations as “distractions”.

The media is conditioning voters by demonizing Republicans and keeping Hillary untouchable. It is pathetic but, unfortunately, it will probably work. Far too many voters are totally ignorant of candidates and the issues – and brainwashed by the media.

It is now coming to light that Hillary and her lawyers have been lying about her emails and we now know she lied about Benghazi when she blamed a video for that attack. Refusing to answer questions about the “Clinton Cash” scandal has kept her from lying about that, too, but she will eventually have to address it and the lies will come.

She is not answering questions from reporters about these controversies and the media just accepts her silence. The State Department even tried to help her by holding back the release of her emails until January, 2016 which is, conveniently, after the presidential election. A U.S. District Court, however, rejected the idea and is demanding those e-mails be released on a “rolling production” basis. We’ll see if that happens, but don’t hold your breath.

Voters have been brainwashed to believe Hillary is an experienced and highly qualified candidate but she has very few accomplishments. For many voters, just being a woman is qualification enough and Hillary is focused on that. “Making history” is a constant undercurrent in her campaign as she exploits the “war on women” myth, tugging at feminist emotions.

Scandals and lies don’t seem to stand a chance against a biased media or the unconditional love many have for Hillary and her progressive agenda. Obama was kept afloat by it and Hillary seems destined to ride the same wave into the White House. One may hope that will not be the case, but media brainwashing is a tough nut to crack and if the Dems do tire of covering for her, Biden is waiting in the wings – just when you thought it couldn’t get worse.

Hillary Economics

October 26, 2014

Hillary’s attempt to distance herself from Obama as she campaigns for the White House took an odd turn this week. In essence, she agreed with and furthered Obama’s claim that “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t’ build that – Somebody else made that happen” by stating: “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”

This is the same Obama narrative that government is great, provides everything good, and more government will be good for the economy. She furthered that narrative by stating raising the minimum wage doesn’t cost jobs, it leads to job gains.

It is a myth that one of the government’s functions is to create jobs. Growing the government larger, of course, creates government jobs, but that doesn’t help the economy recover because those jobs depend on taxes paid by people with non-government jobs. Government growth cannot be sustained that way and the economy cannot recover that way. Minimum wage increases do not create jobs, especially in the short run. If we fail to help the economy in the short run when it is failing so badly, there may be no long run.

Hillary economics looks a lot like Obama economics. Hillary is not the answer just as Obama has not been the answer. The answer is a change in direction from top to bottom. Vote wisely.

Liberal Retorts

March 10, 2014

Commentator Mike Barnicle, appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, proudly commented: “…what does it say about a group, CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had, the one who received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?”

Derisive name-calling is the standard retort of the left. Criticism and differences are viciously attacked rather than rationally debated because much of their agenda is based on “belief” rather than reality. Calling Sarah Palin a moron has become a standard of the left and many who are clueless about Palin repeat this proudly as if it is an original thought, but it is pure ignorance.

Often, we find hypocrisy accompanying ignorance such as this because these elite and superior intelligent “believers” never look at themselves and never question what they are fed. Thus, Barnicle scoffs and sneers at Palin’s reception from CPAC, conveniently forgetting that Sandra Fluke, an unaccomplished college student, spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2012 and was their star speaker, treated as a hero – just for whining about having to pay for her own birth control.

Chris Matthews, a perfect example of blind belief, called the CPAC a “whole tapestry of weirdness”, a “crazy right-wing economic agenda” attended by a “crazy car”. How’s that for unbiased, informative reporting? Of course, Matthews has long ago lost credibility, becoming a caricature of himself while turning “Hardball” into “Screwball” on a nightly basis.

Routinely, we hear liberals echo the talking point that Fox News lies or, more specifically, that Bill O’Reilly lies. Yet, there are never examples given and most will proudly reveal that they never, ever watch O’Reilly. This discrepancy is a “nuance” overlooked by liberals who get serious talking points from comedians Bill Maher and Jon Stewart.

If you mention these things, you’ll just be called stupid, ending any chance at rational debate. Ignorance may be bliss, but it is also stale and very tiring.

Another Biden Blunder

February 26, 2014

Let Joe Biden speak for more than 90 seconds and he will utter a foolish blunder. He is so well known for gaffes that when asked about him, the majority of people’s first response is laughter. That may be OK for a national clown, but it is embarrassing for a vice president.

Biden was true to form when recently asked about California governor Jerry Brown’s efforts at getting a high speed rail project up and running. Admitting that he was a “train guy”, Biden glowingly spoke of the high speed rail “making sense” by “going from California into Las Vegas” at a speed of “230-240 miles an hour”.

The problem is that this projected high speed rail does not go to Las Vegas (it is expected to run between San Francisco and San Diego) and the top speed, which most probably will never be reached, is only 220 miles an hour. Joe’s assertion, therefore, that it “makes sense” ends up highly doubtful, too.

Biden has lauded this project for quite some time so his confusion should not be treated lightly, especially since he is considered by some to be a viable presidential candidate for 2016. That idea should be as laughable as many of his gaffes, but it would be much too serious a mistake to laugh about.

Biden says whatever he wishes whenever he wishes, all delivered with a smug, cocky smile. He is little more than a cheerleader for Obama which is why many of the so-called journalists covering the White House love him. He is like them: a blind, unshakeable believer. He should join them to cover the next administration in the White House, but he certainly should not become part of that administration.

Top-down Flow of Arrogance

January 22, 2014

NY Governor Cuomo displayed ignorant arrogance with his recent comment: “Extreme conservatives have no place in New York”. Had he only said “extremists”, it might not have been so bad, but his idea of an extremist applies only to conservatives and he made that perfectly clear.

Protecting un-born children, respecting the 2nd Amendment, and believing in traditional marriage are unacceptable and extremist views to Cuomo. His lame explanation that he was only referring to political candidates doesn’t make it any more palatable because elected politicians are supposed to represent all constituents – and many hold those views.

This is a top-down flow of the political arrogance president Obama exudes and it will now permeate Cuomo’s king-like reign. Obama’s refusal to compromise, his demonization of the opposition, and his disrespect for the law flooded his entire administration and it is reaching city and state levels. Cuomo proudly displayed it, convincing more than just the rich that it’s time to leave NY.

Former NY City Mayor Bloomberg displayed this self-righteous attitude as does newly-elected mayor de Blasio who now views his election as a “mandate” to repudiate Bloomberg’s policies. For many, Obama legitimized treating an election as a “mandate” to do whatever one wants and it is becoming standard. This is especially true for many liberal politicians who have pompously convinced themselves that their views are the most popular views of “the American People”.

It seems our entire government is infected with a top-down attitude that works against the common good. Changing leadership is the only remedy, and that can begin in November. Please vote wisely.

Operation Hillary

January 6, 2014

The campaign to elect Hillary president in 2016 has begun. Just like a military operation, it was kicked off by a general, Wesley Clark, with an offer of free bumper stickers. Coinciding with this offer, the central command for Operation Hillary, the NY Times, began printing propaganda in an effort to clear the mud surrounding Hillary.

Much like the Russian newspaper Pravda in the days of the cold war, the NY Times ignored reality and printed its official Operation Hillary view of the Benghazi fiasco, citing an internal “investigation”: “The attack was led…by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam”.

It is incredible that the totally debunked idea of a spontaneous, video-inspired uprising is being resurrected by the NY Times. Not only have “some members of Congress” found the video blame to be false, Libyan President Mohammed Magarief and the Obama administration have both acknowledged that it was a planned terrorist attack backed by al Qaida at Benghazi. It was just reported this past week that the U.S. government is searching for an al Qaeda terrorist wanted for his role in the attack.

Nevertheless, the NY Times finds itself in the awkward position of having to explain away Hillary’s State Department attempt to blame the attack on the video. Since that attempt is well-documented, the only thing the NY Times can do is pretend it was true. It will now stick by its story and repeat it until it sticks in its readers’ heads.

The Ready for Hillary super PAC rented an email list from Hillary’s failed 2008 campaign in order to contact past supporters and get them on board. Though Hillary has not yet declared herself to be a candidate, her campaign has certainly started with her approval but first, her sullied past needs to be cleaned. The NY Times is on the job.

Here comes the next “let’s make history” presidential campaign.

Progressive Derangement

November 26, 2013

Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College seriously proclaimed to his class: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites…what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing”.

It has been reported that this tirade basically calling for white males to commit suicide was received by his predominately white, middle-class students with a standing ovation. The “Diversity Chronicle” found it remarkable that “a few far-right extremists” actually objected to the professor’s “sound and reasonable words” that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind”. Therefore, an enlightened Ivan Fernando from the “Diversity Chronicle” interviewed Ignatiev to clear up any confusion.

Professor Ignatiev clarified: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it…Those who object to my advice (destroying the cancer of humanity known as the white race), knowingly or perhaps unknowingly, are themselves white supremacists.” 

These are the words of wisdom from a retiring, tenured professor in our “progressive” education system. The fact that this is so blatantly racist that it makes Al Sharpton look moderate doesn’t even scratch the depth of its depravity, and our children are being brainwashed with twisted ideology like this in colleges all across the country. This is being paid for with second mortgages, student loans, and life-long savings.  

If this is the future you desire for your children, don’t vote. Stay home and let the deranged, squeaky wheels continue to steer the country. The past two presidential elections emboldened those who espouse this nonsense and it is being labeled “mainstream” thinking. Is it? If so, we are already past the point of no return. If not, we may still be able to avoid doom, but the “mainstream” has to vote to be heard.

Gambling on a Dream

July 4, 2013

Every time a new “benefit” of Obamacare kicks in, we are sorely reminded of Pelosi’s infamous remark: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”. Had Pelosi, Obama, and all the Obamacare cheerleaders read it beforehand, they would have been more prepared to defend the negative impacts that continue to pour out of this poorly written and hastily passed dream bill. As it stands now, they look foolish trying to defend an indefensible dream.

All President Obama wanted was to pass the bill and fulfill his personal political agenda. Consequently, he is now in constant defense mode, seemingly surprised by what falls out of the bill. He has been handing out exemptions to companies unable to handle the economic impact and his administration is totally unprepared to implement many of the bill’s provisions.

Now, Obama has decided to delay the bill’s employer mandate until after the mid-term elections, to 2015, in order to relieve campaigning Democrats of the burden that provision brings. It is a blatant political maneuver and an admission of the bill’s failure from the man still engaged in “selling” the bill, using taxpayer money, to the American people.

Obamacare has been voted on and is now the law. It is pathetic that this administration is still engaged in “selling” a law to the people, and it is even more pathetic that this administration has the audacity to delay, change, or ignore parts of this “law” as it wishes to fit its political agenda.

The fiasco this “law” has become is obvious and the damage it will cause is just beginning. Unfortunately, we, the people, deserve it. Obama was elected, twice, by people wanting to make history rather than make sense. That history will reveal to our children how we foolishly gambled their future on a dream – and lost.

Sounds of Silence from the Media

May 23, 2012

Sometimes, silence speaks volumes, and the silence on many issues from today’s liberal media is more telling than the flood of opinions it passes off as news. That silence is wrapped in bias, the same bias the media continues to vehemently deny. The silence is much too loud to ignore.

In Kentucky’s Democrat primary, uncontested president Obama won just 58% of primary voters while 42% voted for “uncommitted”. In Arkansas, 42% of primary voters opted for a challenger wanting to repeal Obamacare. In West Virginia, a candidate serving a prison term won 41% of the primary votes. These election events went unreported or under-reported by many network news shows because they are very embarrassing for Obama. There is no other excuse.

When the Catholic Church announced its massive, unprecedented lawsuit against Obama and his health care reforms, ABC and NBC ignored the story during their evening newscasts. When the networks finally felt forced to cover the story, their “analysis” overwhelmingly sought the views of politicians, predominantly Democrats. Very few church officials were interviewed, thus keeping the church’s side of the story silent.

Edward Klein, author of the book “The Amateur”, revealed that in his 3-hour interview with Reverend Wright he was told that the Reverend was offered “hush money” from a close friend of Obama in 2008 to essentially disappear until after the election. This potential damaging information went uncovered by the networks which, once again, used silence to protect their beloved Obama.

This biased silence is nothing new from the media and it comes in many different forms. From refusing to dig into Obama’s relationships with Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers to ignoring Obama’s drug use (while over-hyping Romney’s alleged bullying) and his college transcripts, the media’s silence has been instrumental in getting Obama elected and is now geared for his re-election. It is a deliberate strategy and a clear indictment of the media.

Continued media denial of bias can no longer be heard over the din of its silence – and it is getting much too loud.
