Why does the mainstream media ignore the problems with Obamacare? It was forced down our throats and continues to hurt our country, but we don’t hear anything about it. Listen to Zo answer this question and give his solution.

In case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, all the buzz is about the mainstream media cooling off when it comes to its hot and heavy love affair with Obama. What pushed them over the top? ObamaCare has been an abysmal failure, so it seems they can’t manage to keep up the lies for the president anymore. Of course the conservative media has been pointing this out for ages, but now the rest of the media is getting the point. But, that doesn’t mean all is forgiven! Conservatives really do need to continue avoiding liberal media – leave that to the evil bloggers Obama says everyone should be ignoring. Following is a collection of the “best of the best” for today, from the conservative or at least remotely close to unbiased outlets on the ObamaCare failures.
Lawrence O’Donnell opens mouth and inserts foot, comparing the ObamaCare website with F-22 fighter jets – It’s MSNBC, so what should one expect? Of course, the big question is, how did O’Donnell manage to learn anything about fighter jets? Either way, it’s not the most brilliant comparison one could make. For you military junkies, this should be moderately amusing.
Leno blasts ObamaCare rollout – For those that really don’t pay attention, you know it’s bad when Jay Leno picks on you, at least if you’re a Democrat residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! Of course, Leno’s not the only one picking on the president on late night, but this one popped up today.
Ron Fournier thinks Sebelius should hit the road – Don’t let the door hit you in the…. Yet another rip on the administration on MSNBC, this one on Morning Joe.
Spend 4.5 hours on the phone, and still don’t get coverage – Remember it just like it was yesterday? Oh yeah, it was! The president told folks that couldn’t get through the infernal website to try calling to get ObamaCare. Well, one man took that advice, spent 4.5 hours on the phone, and still didn’t get coverage. At least that’s what ABC reports.
Even the Al Jazeera reporters can’t get through – Sure, Al Gore may have sold them their cable spot, but Al Jazeera seems to have gotten the short end of the stick from Obama. Their reporter tries to get on ObamaCare, and can’t.
Well, those were all from Washington Free Beacon today! Next time we’ll have to branch out some more….
Liberal media is controlling the GOP! Doubt that? You won’t after watching Joe Dan Gorman lay it all out for you in this episode of Intellectual Froglegs!
When: Tuesday, July 16th, 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific
What: Yes there are Confederates north of the Mason-Dixon line, and George Neat is one of them. And we’re happy to bring his views to you in the “Confederate Corner” radio show.
For more information on George and his political views, please drop by the Confederate Corner at GoldwaterGal.com. (http://goldwatergal.com/goldwater-gal-media/confederate-corner/)
Tonight: George will be talking about George Zimmerman, Facebook, Janet Napolitano, and the Liberal Media. Of course there will also be a Soldier Salute, and a “nearly-infamous” Crack Pipe Moment.
Ana Marie Cox of the Guardian isn’t on our team. That’s fine. However, to label us the “jackass” wing of journalism only demonstrates the left’s inability to hold their own side accountable. She seems to feel that all of the criticism she outlines in her piece about conservative media are absent on the left. This Friday will mark the one year anniversary of Andrew Breitbart’s passing, and it seems Cox is frustrated, angry, and perhaps threatened by the legacy he left behind.
Let’s just get this out of the way right up front: Ana Marie Cox built her career on blogging jokes about anal sex at the reprehensible guttersnipe site Wonkette. She presented herself as a rambunctious youngster, but it turned out she was already pushing 30 and just naturally behaves like a annoying, hyperactive juvenile. Both Time and later the Guardian hired her in full knowledge of this colorful journalistic career.
First, there is no such thing as being “mean” in media. As Breitbart famously said, “truth isn’t mean. It’s the truth,” and sadly that characteristic fails miserably with left-wing journalists. It’s not mean to point out that Ana Marie Cox built her career on blogging anal sex jokes. It’s just the truth. It’s not mean to point out that Rachel Maddow seems content with airing edited video in order to smear Sen. John McCain’s remarks about gun control. Good Morning Americaedited First Lady Michelle Obama’s inaccurate statement about the tragic death of Hadiya Pendleton in Chicago because of time constraints. It was censorship.
Mrs. Obama claimed, “And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.” This quote appeared online, but not on the February 26 interview with Robin Roberts.
However, when the interview aired on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, viewers heard the first lady said this:
“She was absolutely right. She did everything she was supposed to do. She was standing in a park, with her friends, in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grew up, where our house is. And she was caught in the line of fire. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”
ABC edited the response visually by using a cutaway in the middle of the answer of Ms. Roberts listening.
Cox wrote that the right-leaning media outlets have an MO that seeks to
be outrageous, scurrilous and completely unfair. And then, when you get a rise, just shrug and say: “What’s your problem: can’t take a joke?”
But for something to be humor, it has to be funny. And as comedy goes, the Free Beacon’s jokes have all the subtlety of Jackass. The only difference is that instead of creating dubious hilarity at the spectacle of their self-inflicted pain, they’re using equally ridiculous stunts to laugh at yours. Clinically speaking, we call people with that attitude “sociopaths”, but in the political realm, [Michael] Goldfarb’s [founder of the Washington Free Beacon] punchlines – emphasis on punch! – are just the latest iteration of a burgeoning style of discourse whose practitioners have become influential enough to deserve their own designation.
So, editing video to smear – or convey a false narrative – is fair and accurate, Ms. Cox? To smear James O’Keefe as a racist, who you also criticize in your column, without proof isn’t scurrilous? By the way, Salon.com, who published the piece from left-wing journalist Max Blumenthal, printed a correction stating:
The Feb. 3 “James O’Keefe’s Race Problem” reported that O’Keefe, the conservative activist arrested on charges he plotted to tamper with Sen. Mary Landrieu’s phone lines, helped plan a conference on “Race and Conservatism” that featured white nationalist Jared Taylor. The freelance photographer who attended the event, and snapped O’Keefe’s photo there, now says the right-wing provocateur helped out at the conference,but cannot confirm that he helped plan it. The story has been corrected.
The article also said that O’Keefe was terminated by the right-wing Leadership Institute in 2008, after videos were released of O’Keefe calling Planned Parenthood and offering to donate money to abort black babies. He was let go in 2007. Leadership Institute co-founder Morton Blackwell told the New York Times O’Keefe “wanted to do sting operations that would affect legislation; he made some calls which have been covered in the news media to Planned Parenthood. That was beyond the scope of what we had hired him to do. We are an educational organization. We are not an activist organization.” Blackwell says he told O’Keefe to choose between his job and his activism, “and he said he was committed to the activism,” according to the Times. The date of O’Keefe’s termination has been corrected, and Blackwell’s explanation has been added to the story.
Cox also slams O’Keefe for using “highly selective cuts,” which is the seat of irony. Besides the examples I listed above, MSNBC was caught editing the recorded testimony of Neil Heslin, whose son was a victim of the Sandy Hook tragedy, on Capitol Hill. Contrary to what the media reported, he wasn’t heckled during his testimony.
MSNBC has a history of editing video to slam conservatives. In 2009, MSNBC edited out a black man carrying an AR-15 rifle in order to engage in racial commentary about the Tea Party. In 2012, they edited out Mitt Romney’s comments about the perils of too much regulation in business, and cut to him discussing the checkout process at the WaWa Deli in order to portray him as out of touch. Lastly, let’s not forget how NBC edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him sound racist.
However, Cox’s conclusion to her piece that left me aghast.
…the perversity of this post-Ann Coulter generation is that they believe the world is run by nerdy liberal elitists , that their antics are a righteous rebellion instead of an attempt to assert the law of jungle. Perhaps it is true that liberal nerds have made great strides in governing – certainly, our president is one – but the reactionary insurgents’ anti-establishment pose, which goes along with shoving a camera in someone’s face, breaks down when you consider the actual policies advocated by the guy behind the viewfinder. Policies that, say, continue to suppress voting rights of minorities won’t make them punk rock heroes.
The only thing remotely disruptive about the material generated by the Bratbarts is its incivility. In itself, that is simply a style, not an argument or a critique. Incivility can be OK: I am a big believer in disrespecting those in power, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with being flippant – there are times when it is the only proper response to authority. As journalist and defender of the lowbrow Gilbert Seldes put it:
“Comedy is last refuge of the nonconformist mind.”
But confusing satire and hazing? Mixing up muckraking with misinformation? Revelation with subterfuge? Laughter with cruelty? Those are the tactics of would-be authoritarians, not outlaw liberators.
Of course, Cox had to boot-lick Obama towards the end. It’s a sign of respect for the great one, which ironically comes before she professes her advocacy in disrespecting elected officials. I’m sure she will be equally harsh on the Obama administration, which has “made great strides” in collecting names for kill lists, convincing the New York Times towithhold information about drone bases, and blowing away Americans abroad with drone strikes. The legality of which is still in dispute.
Lastly, when the liberal media went “birther” on Sen. Ted Cruz (R- Texas), isn’t that a form of hazing? Isn’t insinuating his Canadian roots a cruel exercise in “revelation with subterfuge?” Isn’t that “mixing up muckraking and misinformation? Cruz happens to be a conservative sticking to his principles, and his Canadian roots are an extraneous detail since he was born to an American mother, making him eligible to run for president. Yes, in 2016, we could possibly see a Cruz candidacy.
So, Cox thinks that we on the right sit at the “mean” table in media. Then again, if the liberal media didn’t act like “jackasses” themselves – we wouldn’t be so angry.
The liberal media was was off to the races after Romney’s alleged Olympic gaffe. It would be all the more interesting if this was actually a story. Romney was still called Mitt the Twit by The Sun. Why? Because the presumptive Republican nominee said “there were a few things that were disconcerting- stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials. That is not something which is encouraging.” CBS This Morning’s Jan Crawford gave this sensationalized report on July 26:
JAN CRAWFORD: That [statement] caused a storm in the tea cup and started a transatlantic war of words after Prime Minister David Cameron said this.
DAVID CAMERON: We’re holding an Olympic games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course, it’s easier, if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.
CRAWFORD: Cameron was responding to a question about subway delays, not Romney and his aides later said he was not referring to Salt Lake City. But the mayor of salt lake thought otherwise. Seeing the coverage, he took offense, releasing a statement inviting Prime Minister Cameron to “stop by any time. We’d love to have him and happy to send a map so he doesn’t run into trouble locating the middle of nowhere.” And The Daily Telegraph opined that Mitt Romney is perhaps the only politician who can start a trip that was suppose to be a charm offense by being utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive. After a meeting with Cameron, Romney walked back his critique.
CRAWFORD: Now Prime Minister Cameron said after his meeting with Romney, he knew Romney had run a successful Olympics and he appreciated that vote of confidence. But Gayle and Charlie, I’ve got to tell you, all of this here has really overshadowed one of the main reasons Romney was coming to London, which of course was to remind Americans of his role in saving those troubled Salt Lake City Olympics ten years ago.
What gaffe is the liberal media talking about? Romney only reiterated what many in the UK were already saying about Olympic security. As indicated by RBpundit, the British press, the same blokes blasting Romney, were in a frenzy over Olympic security a week before the event.
The security concerns were triggered last week when it emerged that private security contractor G4S [a UK security firm], which was supposed to have provided 10,400 guards for the Olympics and Paralympics, would not be able to deliver.
Its failure to recruit, train and vet enough staff in time led the government to announce last week that it was deploying an extra 3,500 troops to cover the shortfall.
G4S said it has only about 4,000 guards trained and ready, although it hopes to have 7,000 fully accredited by the time the Games begin on July 27.
Even members of parliament were uneasy with the “making it up as you go along” approach, which forced the government to deploy more troops to provide adequate protection. There was even a whistleblower in G4S who claimed that x-rays failed to detect a phony nail bomb, which should be a cause for alarm.
This is not a “controversy” or a “gaffe.” It’s the Democrat Media Complex on the war path. The Washington Examiner did some digging into Obama’s British gaffes and here are a few of them that were published on July 27.
March 2009: Obama “too tired,” to properly host Prime Minister Gordon Brown
Prime Minister Gordon Brown came to visit the President at the White House, but the British press reported there was no “full-blown press conference” or “formal dinner,” as has been customary. The British Press reported that the President was “too tired” to properly host the Prime Minister because he was dealing with the economic crisis.
Even worse was this reported quote from an anonymous State Department official: “There’s nothing special about Britain. You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn’t expect special treatment.”
March 2009: Obama gives Prime Minister Gordon Brown a box of DVD’s
While visiting the United States, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown gave the president a pen fashioned out of the same wood as the Resolute Desk. What did Obama give him in return?
“Barack Obama, the leader of the world’s richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films – a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks,” reported the Telegraph.
What’s worse, the set of DVD’s was coded for the United States and unreadable by UK DVD players.
April 2009: Obama gives Queen Elizabeth an iPod
White visiting the Queen, the Obama family gave her an iPod,prompting raised eyebrows from the British Press. The MP3 player came pre-loaded with photos from President Obama’s inauguration and audio files of the president’s speech as a senator to the 2004 Democratic National Convention and his 2009 inauguration address.
The queen reportedly already had an iPod.
April 2009: First Lady Michelle Obama breaks protocol by touching the Queen’s back
January 2011: Obama calls France America’s ‘strongest ally’
While President Obama was visiting France, the British Press was particularly vexed when he told French President Nicolas Sarkozy that France was America’s strongest ally.
“The UK has lost nearly 350 troops in the war against the Taliban – seven times as many as France.” noted the Daily Mail.
May 2011: After toasting the Queen, Obama continues speaking as the band starts playing ‘God Save the Queen.’
This awkward moment had both countries wincing, as the President presumed to keep speaking even though the band started playing.
The BBC notes: According to protocol, however, he (Obama) should have stopped after the toast.
May 2011: Barack Obama snubs British scientists by refusing to receive Royal Society medal
The Telegraph reports: “Sources close to the state visit said members of the Royal Society were ‘deeply offended’ by the snub and had accused Mr Obama of being obsessed with his ‘street cred.’”
December 2011: President Obama refers to the British Embassy as the “English Embassy”
From the Daily Mail: In an interview yesterday, Mr Obama said: ‘All of us are deeply disturbed by the, err, crashing of, err, the English Embassy, err, the embassy of the United Kingdom.’
June 2012: President Obama refers to the Falkland Islands as ‘the Maldives’
This was a mistake on top of a gaffe, as the Maldives are actually in the Indian Ocean. Obama was trying to say “Malvinas” — the name given to the Falkland Islands by the Argentine government, a British possession which Argentina invaded in 1982. This was the British equivalent of suggesting that the U.S. hand Pearl Harbor over to the Japanese. As The Telegraph’s Nile Gardiner writes: “This is a position that Britain views as completely unacceptable, and with good reason.”
(H/T Sooper Mexican)
All of this and Bob Gibbs, in his insufferable wrongness, had the temerity to say:
Mitt Romney wondered aloud whether London was ready for the Olympics, and I think it’s clear that voters in this country wonder aloud whether Mitt Romney is ready for the world…I think the world is not yet ready for Mitt Romney, he [Gibbs] added. To go overseas, stand in the country of our strongest ally, in an Olympics they’ve been preparing for years for, and question whether or not they’re ready does make you wonder whether or not he’s ready to be commander-in-chief.
Hey Bob, first of all,you can go shove it. Second, France is our strongest ally.
Well, well, well, when people live in glass houses while making a living throwing stones, things are bound to get a little testy. (pun intended) The Liberal propaganda artists over at Media Matters whom are paid operatives of the Democratic party, also known as D.A.M. (Democratic Attack Machine) are getting a very heavy dose of their own medicine finally. Considering that Media Matters was created for the sole reason purpose of hurling rocks at conservative houses across America back in 2004, by a man whom many deem to be nothing more that a propaganda-pushing fake journalist, and self proclaimed author Mr. David Brock. According to Fox News, Mr. Brock was sued by a former gay lover, Mr. William Grey that was settled at the end of last year, albeit it very quietly, considering Mr. Brock’s status as as a White House-connected Liberal political operative. Courtesy of Fox News: (emphasis added)
Brock’s bitter legal battle with Grey, who is described in a Sept. 14, 2010, police report obtained by FoxNews.com as his domestic partner of more than 10 years, began after Brock began dating Washington, D.C., restaurant impresario James Alefantis about five years ago. For the next three years, Brock and Grey traded angry accusations, which were documented in the police report and were the foundation of a pitched legal battle replete with charges of blackmail, theft and financial malfeasance.
The fairy tale like relationship fell apart over $170,000 worth of “community property” that consisted mainly of furniture that was in their Washington townhouse, where the gay couple entertained big time Liberal “movers and shakers.” What is astounding, is the fact that the acrimonious shattering of this love affair between two men, one of which makes his living hurling political ball-busting boulders at anything conservative, has been kept relatively quiet for over two years, at least up until now.
The Daily Caller has been at the forefront of exposing Media Matters malfeasance from the very beginning, unlike ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, etc. who continue to choose to turn a blind eye towards this completely discredited organization simply because they are bought and paid for by today’s Liberal Democratic party and Barack Obama. (paid for with your tax dollars to a great extent) The Caller’s most recent expose’ into just who has been funding Media Matters leads right up to Bernie Madoff and company, which you may read here. There is also a complete page dedicated to real journalistic reporting and truth-telling about Mr. Brock’s enterprise, Media Matters. It takes courage to stand up to these very well-funded Liberal propagandists, and all of these brave folks deserve a hearty round of applause for their dedicated reporting on topics which the irresponsible mainstream media continue to hide from the public.
How does that saying go again? “Hell hath no fury, like a woman ( or gay lover) scorned.” Anyone concerned over whether Mr. Brock could end up unemployed over all of the Media Matters malfeasance that has come to light recently, should not really fret too much. There’s plenty of these Liberal propaganda outfits operating today with the help of Liberal political operatives who chose to call themselves “news reporters.” Think Progress, which is just another arm of the Center for American Progress comes to mind here, considering that it is now being run by former Obama kingmaker John Podesta, he of Clinton media management and manipulation fame. They are all just covert forms of the national network of the Democratic Attack Machine.
Note: Tucker Carlson, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller has even drawn counter-attacks from another media arm of D.A.M. Politico in attempts to discredit the Media Matters expose’. Truth-telling is making a comeback… and ruffling a lot of Liberal feathers along the way.
Powdered Zombies is none other than Steven Crowder and Chris Loesch, wearing powdered wigs and dressed up in the garb our Founding Fathers wore.
Be sure to pay attention to the racist message at the 2:55 mark. I never would have known it was racist, but thanks to the liberal media, we now know…. this song and video is racist.
Next thing you know, a black-tie event is going to be racist. No worries- the liberal media will be sure to let you know when it is official!
In Iowa, Newt Gingrich recently gave Nora O’Donnell a dose of reality: In the following video clip courtesy of mediaite.com, Co-Host Nora O’Donnell plays the part (albeit not very well) of a shell-shocked innocent observer that has just been told that the earth is in fact, round,and not flat, while interviewing GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Never mind the fact that she has the complete transcript of the conversation of exactly what Newt Gingrich said recently during the Iowa GOP caucuses campaign about why he considers Mitt Romney to be an untrustworthy liar and not worthy of being elected as the President of the United States of America. This is the kind of play-acting that poses as media reporting today, brought to you by CBS, where O’Donnell is currently the Chief White House Correspondent for CBS News in Washington DC.
Meanwhile, FoxNews contributing leftist Allen Colmes made some very disturbing comments about GOP Presidential candidate Rock Santorum and yet not one single person at CBS seemed to find that disgusting example of nasty rhetoric worthy of mentioning. Please see, Allen Colmes Mocks Mocks the Way Santorum Family Grieves Dead Child.
O’Donnell, while playing the part of the shocked innocent, repeatedly asked Newt Gingrich if he was calling Mitt Romney a liar, even though the actual ad-script was sitting right in front of her and she was reading from it. “Why are you saying he’s a liar?” O’Donnell asked. To which Gingrich replied, “Because this is a man whose staff created the PAC, his millionaire friends fund the PAC, he pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC –it’s baloney. He’s not telling the American people the truth.” Meanwhile most of the media misfits seem content to parrot the Romney talking points that he is somehow completely disconnected from the attack ads being run by by the PAC that his very own staff created, just to give Romney the ability to distance himself from the attack ads they are running against Newt Gingrich.
Gingrich came out with the following blazing but factual statement, which he explained to the oh-so-shell-shocked O’Donnell: “It’s just like this pretense that he’s a conservative. Here’s a Massachusetts moderate who has tax-paid abortions in ‘Romneycare,’ puts Planned Parenthood in ‘Romneycare,’ raises hundreds of millions of dollars of taxes on businesses, appoints liberal judges to appease Democrats, and wants the rest of us to believe somehow he’s magically a conservative.” There is a lot of truth in that statement, much to the dismay of Romney supporters. Instead of focusing on, or rebutting any part of that statement, O’Donnell puts the emphasis on Gingrich calling Romney a liar, which is a disgusting disservice to the American people. As O’Donnell continues to act as if Gingrich’s statement is incomprehensible, he sums it up for her as follows:
“I just think he ought to be honest with the American people and try to win as the real Mitt Romney, not try to invent a poll-driven, consultant-guided version that goes around with talking points, and I think he ought to be candid. I don’t think he’s being candid and that will be a major issue. From here on out from the rest of this campaign, the country has to decide: Do you really want a Massachusetts moderate who won’t level with you to run against Barack Obama who, frankly, will just tear him apart? He will not survive against the Obama machine.”
Romney was asked about Newt’s statements later on in an appearance on Fox and Friends, and he responded by reiterating that he has no control over PACs that have endorsed him. Right, just like Barack Obama has no control over the leftist smear campaigns, parroted by the very same political operatives that were recently invited to the White House to “discuss their talking points’ as they head towards to the 2012 election year, as Jake Tapper reported here.
With the advent of super high speed internet and information sharing around the globe making it easier to expose nefarious groups and individuals that are spreading misinformation today, we are seeing the constant re-naming of those who are exposed to be propagandists/societal manipulators more frequently than ever before. This especially holds true in the Global Warming- which-is-now-Climate Change political propaganda arena.
It was recently quietly announced that a certain U.S. Climate change think tank had lost it’s main funding of charitable donations. The very same media manipulators who has previously deemed this group “a reputable think tank that sought solutions for climate change” seem to be a little miffed about how this particular group will now be getting their funding from big oil and green energy interests. Notice how I wrote “a little miffed,” as opposed to furious there? The climate change scam supporters and pimps that faithfully promote the climate change biggest fraud to ever be perpetuated on the American public, will also be promoting this newly-named group 24/7, regardless of the fact that they are now being funded by big oil and green energy-government-connected- crony-capitalists. ( think Solyndra, Light-Squared, and the rest of the entire solar/wind power-selling government-connected thieves)
Meet the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, or C2ES
C2ES is just a retread of one of the main originators of the then-titled Global Warming scam of the Clinton/Gore administration. C2ES was formerly known as the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. The President of the Clinton/Gore retread of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, which is now being called C2ES is none other than Eileen Claussen. In her fluffed up bio on the leftist-propaganda website, The Huffington Post, we see just how manipulative the media can be, not in what they print, but in what they purposely choose to leave out:
Ms. Claussen is the former Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.
Prior to joining the Department of State, Ms. Claussen served for three years as a Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Global Environmental Affairs at the National Security Council. She has also served as Chairman of the United Nations Multilateral Montreal Protocol Fund.
Ms. Claussen was Director of Atmospheric Programs at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where she was responsible for activities related to the depletion of the ozone layer; Title IV of the Clean Air Act; and the EPA’s energy efficiency programs, including the Green Lights program and the Energy Star program.
Of note is that this Global Warming propagandist has held various positions in the Extreme Political Activists group known as the EPA, which is 100% controlled by far left environmental radicals under the thumb of Lisa Jackson today.
What they fail to include in that Liberal libation posing as a “bio” is the fact that Ms. Claussen was a major plank in the Global Warming fraud initiated by the Clinton administration with a heavy does of Al Gore at the helm. Yes that Al Gore. The Huff-blow bio goes on to mention a bunch of fluffy awards Claussen received from her green energy bed-pals, along with the fact that she is a long time member of The Council of Foreign Relations, or CFR. Now that we have drug Ms. Claussen out of the Al Gore/Clinton closet for all to see, we also see that in an article by the AFP, Ms. Claussen now claims C2ES will be.. wait for it…an “Independent, non-partisan solution center.” I can practically hear our readers laughing out loud when reading that ludicrous statement, no matter where they may be reading from. If C2ES is in fact an independent, non-partisan solution center, then they surely will not be sucking the sludge from the same taxpayer-funded-money trough as the rest of the government crony-capitalists in big oil and green energy are doing today, right? Not quite.
In the C2ES coming-out-of-the-Al-Gore-closet-under-a-new-name announcement, Claussen named their three new “strategic partners” as Entergy, HP and Shell, adding that they had made “substantial multi-year funding commitments to the new organization.” ( except for the fact that this is not a new organization, but the same old Al Gore-type Global Warming, propaganda-spreading, puppet group that has changed names.)
“Major contributors” were listed as the Alcoa Foundation, Bank of America, GE, The Energy Foundation, Duke Energy and last but certainly not least, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Pay attention folks, there is a new Climate Change propaganda group that isn’t really new at all, and it’s now called C2ES. Brought to you by the Clinton/Al Gore administration and now funded by various government-connected crony-capitalists in the big oil and green energy sectors. All under the guise of being “independent and non-partisan.”
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
The State of Florida has new voting laws in place this year, and a few people have already been caught violating them a year before the 2012 elections. Apparently certain parts of our society down here in Florida are incapable of reading and understanding the new laws,( including a teacher) which are laid out in easy-to-read detail here. One other question we might ask, is that if a person can not read the above-linked voting law, how in the world can they ever research the candidates and actually know whom to vote for today? When people have to be herded to register to vote like blind sheep, what does that say about their ability to cast informed and educated votes? This is how unqualified politicians end up getting elected over other, sometimes better candidates, in our electoral system today. Uninformed voters are being manipulated by misinformation and soundbites on TV instead of actually voting for the candidate that will serve their constituents the best. The false rhetoric being spread about Florida’s new voter law suppressing certain groups of voters is a perfect example of voters being manipulated by misinformation. This is also how we get career politicians that constantly trample our constitutional rights and the rule of law while being reelected over and over. Senator Bill Nelson is one of those types of politicians, and Connie Mack is going to see about changing that situation in the Florida U.S. Senate race in 2012.
Much to the dismay of the media and certain political operatives down here in Florida, the new voting laws do not in fact, suppress anyone’s opportunity to vote, as Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fl) is contending. The new laws were created to eliminate Acorn-style vote fraud and nothing more. The law changes the rules for voter registrations in that people who want to register hundreds or thousands of new voters,( such as this teacher does) must register with the supervisor of elections beforehand, and update them on their activities on a daily basis. This will prevent people from registering 10,000 new voters and holding them until the last minute, which in turn floods the system to the point where the state election employees can not make sure all of the newly registered voters are legit. One teacher did just that in a previous Florida election, and held voter registrations some 6 months in a locker before turning them in. That practice will no longer be tolerated here in Florida.
The media here in Florida are also shamelessly giving Democrats a huge voice in falsely claiming that this new law will somehow suppress certain voter’s rights. The Democrats, being led by Sen. Nelson, even want the Department of Justice to interfere with the new voting laws. Florida and national Democrats are using the usual plethora of supposed victims in Seniors, youth and now even saying that the law somehow discriminates against the gay community! When people do a Google search on the new Florida voting law right now, they are inundated with false claims that the new law will somehow suppress voters of certain groups in a whopping 49 of the top 50 pages that come up in your browser window. Tell me that isn’t being manipulated there. Common sense lets folks read the above-linked law and see that bunch of bunk as the propaganda campaign by Democrats that it truly represents.
Of course the 99% Liberal media machines here in Florida now want to paint the supposed teacher who broke the new election laws as a victim of some grand Republican vote-suppressing conspiracy. The only thing she is a victim of here, is her own stupidity in not researching the new law before signing up school students to vote. This also explains how Obama captured a huge portion of the youth vote in 2008. Dem-activist teachers have been filling their student’s heads with misinformation while corralling them to vote, such as this teacher has been doing when whining about the new voting laws in Florida. According to Democrats and their media puppets here in Florida, there was/is no proof of widespread vote fraud in Florida, and therefore no need for any laws to prevent it. Oh really?
The 2008 election year alone proves otherwise, and CDN believes in publishing the facts, not repeating the D.A.M. talking points loaded with misinformation and flat out lies. At ballotpedia we see the harsh reality of the need to protect the integrity of Florida’s voting system in the number of proven voter fraud cases in 2008 alone: Pay attention folks, as you will not see this information being published by The St. Pete Times, Tampa Tribune or any other mainly Liberal-controlled media puppet organizations down here in Florida:
Nov 02, 2008 2000 people found in one Indiana county also in Florida in which The Journal Gazette compared the list of 222,000 active registered voters in Allen County with the list of more than 12 million registered voters in Florida and found that 2,172 registrations have the same first and last names, middle names or initials and the same birth dates and are listed as active, eligible voters in both places
Nov 01, 2008 Mentally-handicapped citizens illegally registered to vote in Florida in which In South Florida, a Collier woman states that her two mentally handicapped adult children have been registered to vote in an illegal act. Since her children (Michael, 19, and Jennifer, 32) are not able to read and write, or even tell you where they live, they did not register to vote by themselves, nor would they be competent to vote. Both of Griselle Gonzalez’ children live in the same adult group home in Broward County. According to a spokesman for the group home, the home registers its residents, however most of them will not vote. For those who require authorization from a guardian, written consent is obtained before registration can occur. Griselle Gonzales is the guardian of both of her children and denies ever giving authorization. She said “I don’t think they should be allowed to vote. I mean, especially not because I don’t want them to have the right to be a citizen, but because I don’t want somebody to chose for them.”
Oct 31, 2008 More dead people voting in Florida in which we see Chanel Nine News discovered 1,636 registered voters in Central Florida are dead. Although most of these people never show up to vote, a few of them did in the 2006 election. Marjorie Branch died in 2004, yet voted in the 2006 election.
Oct 29, 2008 Florida rolls contain dead people, felons, duplicates: With balloting well under way in the 2008 general election, the Sun Sentinel found more than 65,000 ineligible and duplicate voters on Florida’s registration rolls. These included at least 600 dead people, 32,000 voters registered more than once and more than 33,000 convicted felons who by law, should not be allowed to cast ballots.
And just this week, the FBI arrested 8 people in Florida for absentee ballot fraud as RedState.com reported here.
Looking at all of the above evidence, I believe it is safe to state that any politicians/political activists/media puppets in Florida that say we do not have a vote fraud problem ( in order to bash the new vote law) are simply spreading misinformation, or in denial of reality, take your pick.
The new Florida voting laws that are in effect as of September, 2011 are not hidden or inaccessible as many claim they are, and can be accessed right here for all to read: New 2011 Florida Voting Laws. They are NOT as many people are claiming, designed to suppress certain voting groups. Read the law.
Again, the new Florida voting law is in fact, designed to cut out Acorn-style voter fraud which has been proven to have corrupted our electoral process throughout America, that resulting in the Acorn group being defunded by the United States Congress in late 2009. At the core of a true Democracy is the integrity of our electoral system, and this law takes the necessary steps to protect our right to hold fair elections. The only people objecting to the new Florida voting laws are simply the ones whom have gotten elected using illegal practices and shady get out the vote – voter registration drives to get into or remain in office. Instead of supporting a law designed to prevent the rampant vote fraud witnessed above that happened in Florida in 2008, they in fact want the DOJ to nullify the law. That right there should tell Floridians all they need to know about how desperate Democrats are proving to be as we head into the 2012 elections. Senator Bill Nelson can be seen in the above-linked article repeating the lie that the new law will somehow suppress certain groups of voters no less than 10 times without ever explaining just how he comes to that conclusion. No proof to back it up, just empty rhetoric and misinformation that flies in the face of the truth about the new voter laws in Florida: They are designed to prevent the rampant 2008 Acorn-style vote fraud, and protect the integrity of our electoral system, and nothing more.
Footnote: A 3 Judge federal court panel refused to speed up rendering a decision that involves the necessary preclearance needed for 4 disputed parts of the new law, yet the judges agreed the case should be expedited, just not as fast as the state had proposed. That decision means those sections at issue will not apply for the primary in five Tampa Bay-area and southwest Florida counties that are covered by the preclearance requirement. They are Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and Monroe.
Regardless of the rhetoric, Floridians still have until the new Jan. 31st GOP Primary election date to register and get ready to vote. Then we have a complete year to comply with the new law and register to vote. If you are not competent enough to get registered to vote properly in the time-frame of a full year, maybe you shouldn’t be voting at all. Get registered to vote ahead of time, make any changes in address or your political party today, and all of these falsehoods being told by Bill Nelson and the media puppets down here in Florida about the new Florida elections law are proven to be a bunch of bunk, period. You can make those changes right from home here. It is easy to register yourself to vote in Florida and/or change your voter information. Florida voters, especially high school students, do not need political activist teachers to register them to vote. Students? The next time a teacher in Florida tries to register you to vote, tell them you are fully capable of doing it yourself. After all, it is your gerneration who will be straddled with the massive amounts of debt these politicians have heaped upon you for the past two decades. Right now as it stands, future generations of Americans now owe $15 trillion dollars of debt. Become more than just a puppet-voter doing what a teacher or other political activist tells you, and become an informed voter while you still have the chance. It is your future and freedom from a too big, too powerful government that hangs in the balance here.
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
The people of Libya heard a dramatic swoosh of air last night, and upon looking up into the darkened moonless sky, started shouting, “look it;s a bird, no it’s a plane, no it’s… Super-Obama! Here to save the world from the evil American capitalists and the dreaded Senior citizens of the Tea Party . Over at MSNBC, Chris Mathew’s whole body was engulfed in massive electrifying tingles as he cheered on Super-Obama upon hearing of his single-handedly hunting down and killing the Al Qaeda murdering Muslim cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki. And then the Liberal lefties awoke to the reality that Super-Obama did not in fact kill al-Awlaki in a superhero-style act of bravery and courage. Sorry lefties, Super-Obama did not fly into Libya as pictured here and blast the vehicle that al-Awlaki and company were traveling in at the time with his high-intensity laser-firing super decoder ring. While that scenario may sound pretty far-fetched, it is not however, too far from the Liberal media tale-telling we are already hearing from the leftists posing as news people today, in their ever-constant fluffing up of what will go down in history as the biggest fraud to ever get near the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s look at the actual facts that brought about the demise of this really nasty-minded coward and a few his cohorts. Unlike the Liberal “journolists” and Josef Goebbel’s-esque students in the art of propaganda and history re-writes over at MSNBC, we will report the facts as best we can here, without adding any fluffy tales of fake Democratic Superheroes. Yes, we all know there is an election for Super-Barack to worry about, but that’s his problem.
First of all let’s get one very important fact straight here. The Global Multi-Culturists and assorted New World Order society manipulators seem to feel the need to label the murdering Muslim terrorist al-Awlaki and his now dead Jihad-preaching pal Samir Khan,.. as Americans. These two misfits were about as American as another obviously mentally deranged lunatic, the anti-American President of Iran, Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, period. Just being born here, or spending some time in America simply does not qualify a person as being an American. To be an American is an honor and a privilege to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, while assimilating to the American culture and the rule of law. These two Muslim Jihadis were anti-Americans at their core, and therefore should not EVER be labeled as Americans.
Samir Khan, a Muslim Terrorist Plotting Murder Openly in America, while Politically Correct Law Enforcement Endangers the Public by Ignoring the Warnings.
Samir Khan was born in Saudi Arabia, and raised in Queens, N.Y. In the beginning of his time in Queens at the age of seven, Khan appeared to be a regular neighborhood child, wearing baggy pants and listening to hip-hop music with his neighborhood pals. As he matured towards adulthood, Mr. Khan then joined two ‘supposedly’ non-violent Muslim groups and was indoctrinated into Sharia law, as is the custom for all Muslims regardless of their host country. [ To worship Sharia law and live by it’s draconian 7th century ideology is in fact, in direct conflict with being an American.] Mr Khan’s family then relocated to North Carolina in 2004, where he is said to have gravitated towards radicalism after watching videos of Muslim Jihad-inspired suicide bombers blowing themselves up at American checkpoints in Iraq. It was at this time that Samir Khan stated openly supporting Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in his online writing. He even went so far as to be interviewed with the N.Y.Times, in which he stated that his favorite video was of a suicide bomber in Iraq blowing up an American military base. Yes he was still living in America at this time. Upon explaining his favorite video of Americans being murdered in Iraq, Khan told the Times reporter, ” It was something that brings great happiness to me.” What kind of a coward can sit there listening to this extreme anti-American statement and not call the police and demand that Samir Khan be arrested immediately? A politically correct reporter, working for The New York Times, just sat there and took notes while this lunatic basically came right out and said the killing of innocent Americans by Muslim terrorists brought great happiness to him. Mr Khan went on to become the propaganda minister of al-Qaeda’s English-language magazine Inspire, where he wrote articles “inspiring” young Americans to wage war against the infidels in America and other western countries,targeting anyone who does not bow down to Sharia law in what he termed as the non-believers.
Anwar al-Awlaki , The bin Laden of the Internet
Anwar al-Awlaki was born in the United States of Yemeni parents, who then moved him back to Yemen at the age of seven, where he studied at the Azal Modern School for eleven years, until he reached the age of eighteen when he returned to the U.S. to attend engineering college in Colorado. In another apparent failure of our intelligence services and U.S. State dept, al-Awlaki was given a foreign student visa that allowed him to reenter the U.S. while falsely claiming that he was born in Yemen. al- Awlaki received his engineering degree after four years in Colorado, then earned an M.A. in Education Leadership for San Diego State University, and in 2001 ( that year ring any bells?) studied at the George Washington University Graduate School of Education and Human Development until the end of 2001, just 3 months after the 911 Muslim terrorist murders of over 3000 innocent Americans.al-Awlaki was an imam of The Denver Islamic Society from1994-1996, and also served as an imam in America from 1996 – 2000 at a mosque on the outskirts of San Diego. He left the Denver imam post after being chastised by an elder for supposedly encouraging other students to wage jihad against westerners. Did said elder report al-Awlaki’s radicalism to the authorities? Of course not, the so-called religion of peace while demanding the good life in America almost never reports the radical Muslims among them.
In 1998 and 1999, al-Awlaki served as the vice-president for lovely sounding Charitable Society for Social Welfare in… San Diego, California. In a page that seems to have eerily taken right out of the American Liberal Social Justice fraudster’s handbook, this “Social Welfare” charity group was founded by one Abdul Majeed al-Zindani of Yemen, who had been designated as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the U.S. gov’t. The FBI also said in sworn testimony that this “Charity ” was nothing more than a front group for terrorist funding. Two of the 911 suicide bombers frequently attended the Mosque in San Diego where al-Awlaki was an imam. al-Awlaki disappeared to parts unknown overseas in 2000 only to be allowed reentry into America again in Jan. 2001, where he settled in Falls Church Virginia, right outside of our nation’s capitol. Again, this shows us just how politically correct morons within our government refused to snatch up this obvious terrorist and American-murder-plotting Muslim that could have stopped the 911 attacks before they happened, all because some politically-connected lawyers say it would somehow violates his civil rights. Even though al-Awlaki was a proven Muslim terrorist waging war against America and plotting thousands of murders around the world, certain ass-backwards people think he should not have been killed this week.
That is further proof of just how denigrated American society has become today, due largely in part to the Globalist agenda of the U.N mandates of their Social Justice fraud being forced onto the American public. De-fund the U.N. immediately, and kill anyone involved in the murder of innocent Americans. Our very own government is funding anti-American terrorists through many U.N. so-called foreign aid mandates. The country of Yemen was harboring al-Awlaki at the time of his demise on Friday. Yemen is a hotbed of terrorist training camps and has been for decades, and our government still gives them our tax dollars by the billions today. This is in 2010, and Hillary and company have even increased U.S. cash payments to Yemen even more in 2011.
Yemen US aid 2010
Defense relations between Yemen and the United States are improving rapidly, with the resumption of International Military Education and Training assistance and the transfer of military equipment and spare parts. In FY 2010 approximate funding for U.S. Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Yemen was $12.5 million, International Military Education and Training (IMET) was $1 million, and Non-Proliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related Programs (NADR) was $5 million. In FY 2010 Yemen also received approximately $5 million in Economic Support Funds (ESF), $35 million in development assistance, and $155 million in Section 1206 funding.
The Obama administration and Hillary Clinton’s state dept. resumed military funding, equipment, and training assistance to the country of Yemen, to the tune of about some 200 million dollars, in addition to all of the direct and indirect foreign aid we were already giving them. Al-Awlaki’s parents were from Yemen, and they took him back there at the age of seven, to be schooled in the Muslim indoctrination into Sharia law and their 7th century ideology of waging war against all infidels who refuse to worship Allah. Then al-Awlaki came back into the U.S. and continued his promotion of Jihad against America unabated, thanks to the incompetence and political correctness of the U.S. government, resulting in the murder of thousands of innocent Americans on American soil and abroad. The ignorant children and teaching professors of Liberal ideology in America today have called for president G.W.Bush to be arrested for war crimes for over a decade now. How about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s proven crimes of funding the terrorists of Yemen ? al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen. The government of Yemen was supporting him and protecting him at the time of his demise, and yet Barack and Hillary are increasing funding to the Yemeni government even more as we speak. How about it lefties? Will we see you marching outside the White House this week, and calling for the arrest of your Super-hero Barack Obama? They still harass former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and tried to arrest him just this week, so how about Hillary Clinton receiving the same treatment? That simply will not happen due to the fact that the misguided misfits of the left are nothing short of pathetic hypocrites with an agenda, being led around by the nose by the con artists of the fake Democratic Party of today.
The people of Yemen recently saw U.S. drone and fighter-jet strikes swoop down and demolish a convoy of vehicles which carried Anwar al-Awlaki and his fellow jihad propagandist, Samir Khan to their much-deserved fiery death, in an emphatic show of U.S. military might. Chalk one up for the good guys there. Anwar al-Awlaki had been hunted down by the brave warriors of the CIA, FBI, and the U.S. military troops who risk their lives by putting boots on the ground in hostile territories such as Yemen. Meanwhile, Barack Obama and Leon Panetta sat safe and sound back in their luxurious taxpayer-funded offices and simply micro-managed this situation and are not to be designated as being some kind of ultra-courageous Super-heroes, much to the dismay of the Liberal media propagandists that will try to use this episode in true American warrior heroism, as part of a ploy to get Obama reelected. That awe-inspiring attack by U.S. predator drones and fighter jets that swooped down and blew these anti-American Muslim terrorists to a fiery death was a powerful example of just what will happen to these types of cowards who decide to attack and murder Americans around the world today. Let’s leave the Barack-the-Superhero- takes-out-Al-Qaeda -leader-Anwar al-Awlaki comic book episode to the propagandists of the Liberal media and the reelection campaign operatives of Super-Obama, shall we?
