The Whitehouse Carnival Barker

Jay Carny White House Spokesman

Many of us have ran into a ‘Carnival Barker’ at one time or the other in our lives, even if we weren’t familiar with the term.  The Carnival Barker is the loud mouthed person outside the Circus tent or Carnival gates  trying to get you  to spend your money by shouting things that may peak your curiosity. They shout things like come in and see the bearded lady, the worlds smallest horse, the two-headed gorilla etc.  If they are an effective Carnival Barker, they will convince you that if you pay to enter the show you will see things that you previously thought were nothing more than props used in the making of horror films and other assorted man made fiction. And the fact remains that very often that is just what you will see there, man-made fiction, with a quirk of nature thrown in once in awhile to keep you believing in the myths being promoted in the carnival atmosphere. The Carnival Barker must change your perception of what is real and what is not, in order to get you to buy into the mystic carnival sideshows shouted attractions.

Back in the days before TV and the Internet, people relied heavily on the word of mouth to promote their agenda and/or sales pitch. Where some people would believe in such a thing as the half man – half horse cirus attraction, and then entice others to pay to see it by telling them how real it is, after a wider group of people observe the promoted freak of nature and determine that is is in fact, nothing more man made fiction, word travels around, and thus creates the demand for a new carnival/circus attraction that the more naive folks that will pay more money to see the latest attraction. Thus the value of the Carnival Barker in the old days before the Internet let people research the facts at home with lightning speed. Word spreads fast and the truth is more readily available for the public today, thus the decline of the Carnival Barker’s value and importance in persuading the public to pay good money to see fake phenomena.

Meet the new age Carnival Barker of modern day politics pictured above , Mr. Jay Carney, the current White House spokesman.  While he doesn’t wear the outrageous costumes of the Carnival Barkers of yester-year, make no mistake about it, he is in costume none the less.  The fact is, Mr. Carney is  made up in appearance to look like some sort of academic brain child, yet is being exposed to be just like most phony ex-Time magazine propaganda pimps responsible for the degrading of the once proud magazine. Note the glasses trying for the intelligent look, while hiding the beady, untrustworthy eyes. Notice the missing lips that this Carnival Barker often purses when acting like he is actually pondering a truthful, honest answer to the softball questions lobbed at him from the mainly Liberal propagandist White House press corp. Mute the next White House press conference the next time you see him on TV, and just observe Mr. Carney and you will get a totally different opinion of him. He actually will appear to be making an honest attempt at informing the tax paying citizens of America just what the current administration is up to and the reasons behind their actions …. until you turn the sound back on. Then it is all downhill from there for any informed citizen listening to the White House Carnival Barker, as he dodges any attempt at serious questions and/or explanations about why Barack Obama is doing this or that today. Just like the Carnival Barkers of decades ago, Mr. Carney is trying to sell the American people a bunch of bunk, while trying to change their perception of said bunk.  Lets take a look at some of today’s top questions about American citizen’s concerns and just what answers we have gotten from the White House Carnival Barker extraordinaire.

From FoxNews here, we see that the Carnival Barker will not tolerate anyone questioning Obama’s openness or lack thereof:

The “transparency” in the Obama administration means sometimes a question  can’t even get asked.

The discovery came today at the daily White  House news briefing with press secretary Jay Carney, who responded to a  request to be allowed to ask about the president’s positions: “I’m not going to  take your questions.”

Ironically, Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House and the  No. 2 reporter on the White House beat, had wanted to ask about Obama’s  openness.

While the White House Carnival Barker preaches about the current administration’s honesty and openness constantly, if you dare question blatant episodes that show lack of the same, you will be told that the Carnival Barker will not take any of your questions,  that is if you are among the lucky ones and do not get banned all together from the White House press corps for exposing the Carnival Barker’s lies and myths being told through his marching orders from the ringmaster himself, Mr. Barack Obama.

This is exactly like in the old movies, where they show the loudmouth guy being thrown out of the carnival by the strong man because he is calling the Carnival Barker a liar and a fake. Carnival Barkers have to be notoriously thick-skinned due to the fact that they rely on falsehoods and perception management to promote their bunk. Mr. Carney has shown himself to be fairly thin-skinned in his statement above, and therefor he must be considered a lightweight among the history of successful con-men Carnival Barkers. I do not look for Mr. Carney to last long as Obama’s Carnival Barker due to his misinformation and propaganda being proven to be nothing more than a bunch of bunk on a constant basis. Too much exposure to the real facts that dispel the myths being perpetuated by the Carnival Barker will always lead to the Carnival Barker being relegated to cleaning out the Circus horse stalls in the end, or in this case maybe relegate Mr. Carney back to writing for the now leftist propaganda rag , the bankrupt Time Magazine. Both jobs require the shoveling of massive amounts of manure, so the relevance between the two is quite ironic. Anyone with the least bit of common sense can see that the latest White House Carnival Barker, Mr. Jay Carney is as phony as a three-dollar bill in what he is trying to sell the American public.

The recent killing of the Muslim Terrorist Osama Bin Laden has the White House Carnival Barker caught in a  firestorm of misinformation and outright propaganda promotion. His explanation to the controversy about the White House’s dysfunctional messages about what really happened  during the killing of Bin Laden was that it is all simply due to the fog of war. What he failed to admit is that, as the White House Carnival Barker, Mr. Carney is the man operating the fog machine behind all the misinformation today. If you ask too real of a question about our White House today, the Carnival Barker will shut you out of the conversation. He will not tolerate anyone exposing the misinformation behind his message of the day, period.

Look at the demand for real proof of Bin Laden’s death being asked for today, in the form of releasing the pictures of Bin Laden after he was shot in the head. The Carnival Barker uses the excuse that the pictures are gruesome and that there are “sensitivities” here in terms of the appropriateness of releasing the photographs.  We see movies every single day labeled with extreme violence and bloodshed, and we make the decision on whether we want to view them or not. The same thing would apply to the pictures of Bin laden with half his head blown off. We can make our own decisions on whether to look at them or not, yet the Carnival Barker wants to change that perception to be that we need government approval to view them.  This is in line with trying to sell the American people the bunk and propaganda that we are not smart enough to make out own decisions in life, yet  Obama the Ringmaster and his Carnival Barker somehow are. I  hear you barking Mr. Carney, and I for one chose to walk right on by, and refuse to buy into your carnival act. The same goes for the rest of the “Carnival Barkers” in the pathetic so-called mainstream media. I,m simply not buying the fiction those clowns are selling today. America deserves better than this.

Allen West Townhall Interrupted- See the Left’s Plans for this Summer in Action

Recently, Unions and assorted leftist groups have been spreading word on how they plan to “protest” town-hall meetings and anything Republican or Conservative in nature. These people do not want to ask questions and then give someone a chance to answer as we see in the following video. These astroturf puppets have been given a set of things to scream at people with no knowledge of whether it is actually true. Interruption is the game, no matter how foolish they look in doing it. Take for instance the now jailed star of the latest lesson in the leftists civil discourse of today, one former Radio host of the now defunct Liberal Air America radio network, Nicole Sandler. She is the one being led away in handcuffs for the nasty rhetoric and rudeness displayed here that the left now deems the new civil discourse in America.

All of a sudden this nasty, vile, mouthpiece of the left tries to convince everyone that all she wanted was Allen West to answer her questions.(after the handcuffs are slapped on her) Is she so ignorant as to not understand that her and her cohorts are all on video tape screaming nonsense and lies just to interrupt Allen West ? It is all right there for all of America to see. Take note of the biggest lie the leftists are trying to infect America with today: ” Republicans budget plan will take away Seniors Medicare.” Anyone with an ounce of education can read Paul Ryan’s budget plan and see that it in fact, preserves medicare for future generations of Americans and doesn’t take it away from anyone. Medicare cannot continue as it now stands. Changes have to be made, yet everywhere we turn this lie is being repeated over and over, especially by the leftist media puppets. Now we shall see the leftist media puppets try to spin this nasty, uncivil incident perpetuated by a group of leftists at the West town-hall as some kind of  denial of free speech.

Town-hall style meetings are supposed to be about having a discussion about the issues the public is concerned about, not screaming nonsense and lies with the only goal being to shut down the town-hall and not let the representative talk. This is the plan of the left for this summer.They know real Americans are fed up with trillion dollars deficits and anti-American Liberal ideology. The left is desperate, just watch them here. Watch the video and listen to the new civil discourse of the left on full display here. We the people, just as Allen West says during this vile display, will not be intimidated by a loudmouthed minority from the left posing as concerned citizens. They are only fooling themselves. Share this information with everyone you know today, show them exactly what the  Obama supporters and political operatives of the left’s new civil discourse looks like. Then remember this little episode when you go to the polls in 2012. These people are against everything American, especially prosperity and freedom from an overbearing Government. I certainly know which side I will be on come Nov. 2012, and will vote against these anti-Americans every chance I get.

The Trump-Bashing Bandwagon

The list of people bashing, trashing and attacking Donald trump today is about the only thing  growing faster than our national debt. Many seemingly respectful writers, bloggers, newsies, politicians and self-titled intellectuals are all of a sudden turning into blathering, whining, sniveling , backbiting potshot artists all lining up to denounce Donald Trump today. This childish rhetoric seems to go way beyond the usual Democrat vs. Republican, or Liberal vs. Conservative political battleground bloviation. So what is driving this firestorm?  It could stem from outright jealousy at the fact that Trump is a self-made billionaire who actually answers to no one but himself, which allows him to drop the cowardly politically correct speech and say exactly what he feels about the current state of America under the Obama regime in front of crowds today.  Donald Trump’s campaign slogan should be ” Trump Uncensored.”  Trump doesn’t have to get permission from the standard censorship elitists when he makes a speech today. There are no editors or handlers holding sway over what he says, which is why we get some hard-hitting truths coming out of him today that seem to drive the politically correct cowards in the media crazy. Let’s have a look at who is leading the latest round of  Trump attacks and just  what their motives could be for them.

In a Tuesday article from Reuters.com we see a lineup of Trump-bashers from across the political spectrum. These include the following statements :

Karl Rove, who was the architect of Republican George W. Bush’s two presidential victories, called Trump a “joke candidate” for focusing on Obama’s birth certificate.

“The guy is smarter than this,” Rove told Fox News.

When looking at the progressive tendencies of the entrenched old-guard GOP  of the last twenty years and the fact that this country is now deemed a credit risk by Standard and Poor’s here,  one would have to think that anyone who thinks the American people are going to accept another career RINO-Republican for President in 2012 is the real jokester, Mr. Rove. The GOP protectionism auto-reflex against anyone not RINO-approved pops right up every time a viable candidate talks about the real issues facing America today. Donald trump is taking on all comers, including the RINO-Republican cowards, the nanny-state loving Liberals masquerading as Democrats, and the Obama-approved media propagandists too scared to tell the people the truth about the creeping Socialism that is driving us to the brink of financial collapse today. Just exactly what have you and the GOP done for America lately Mr. Rove that demands that we listen to or believe your rhetoric?

Also from the above-mentioned Reuters article we see the following:

And conservative newspaper columnist George Will told ABC News’ “This Week” online “Green Room” segment that Trump is a “blatherskite.””

“That is a word my grandmother was fond of as someone who blathers promiscuously,” Will said.

This is quite interesting in the fact that Mr. Will chose the ABC news Green Room segment as a platform to bash Trump. If  Trump is doing nothing more than blathering promiscuously, why the need for everyone  to denounce him today, including Mr. Will who is cashing checks drawn on the account of the Obama-approved ABC propaganda puppets ?  Mr. Will also went on to say that Trump is more important to the process than Obama ambassador Jon Huntsman, not because he is a more effective candidate, but, wait for it…, Trump stands to make the Republican party look bad. Truth has a way of making lots of people look bad, Mr. Will and we need a hell of a lot more of it today, whether you or the old-guard, big government loving career politicians like it or not.

Going back to that same Reuters article, we see some extremely hard-hitting truth about why Trump is being attacked by the GOP so ruthlessly today, from Jennifer Cook of the non-partisan Cook Report:

“It does seem that the GOP establishment is now engaged in a serious effort to undermine Trump’s candidacy.”

Reuters goes on to try to brand Trump as some kind of “new voice” at the end of that article, almost like some sort of fleeting dime-store novelty item:

“There’s unhappiness with the prominent names that are currently in the field. And when somebody comes along who already has high name identification, who sounds like he would be that new voice, a certain proportion of people gravitate to it,”

That new voice mantra happens to be nothing more than having the guts to tell the people the truth about the current state of America today. In dissecting the lies, misinformation and propaganda coming out of our current government and media propagandists today, I guess someone telling the truth would have to be considered to be a ” new voice.” Donald Trump is invaluable in his messaging today in the fact that he is forcing Americans to understand and discuss the destruction of American freedoms and prosperity through big government expansion, the irresponsible debt spending of career politicians, and the anti-American, anti-Capitalism propaganda coming out of the far left Liberal Obama political machine that is being promoted by the despicable media puppets of today. Trump is to be commended, not chastised or attacked for simply opening up the conversation about what is truly happening in America today. Critical thinking demands that all Americans look at the problems America faces today, the root causes and possible solutions, and address them immediately.

Trump is an uncensored, politically  incorrect maverick on the political stage today, and if we are to ever address the looming financial crisis and inevitable destruction of the American way of  life, we need to hear more from The Donald every chance we get. The truth is often a truly difficult pill to swallow. To deny the truth facing Americans today is to simply turn your back on America and continue down the pathway to her destruction. Keep on keeping on, Mr. Trump, we need to hear more of  it today, whether the career politicians, media puppets, and entrenched political machines like it or not !

CBS and Time Already on Hope N Change Redux 2012 Obama Campaign

       The 2012 Presidential elections are  20 months away,and while we see our Congress locked in a massive budget brawl that looks like it will end up in a government shutdown later on this week, CBS followed Obama’s early campaign announcement lead by starting their own version of Barack’s get out the vote campaign immediately, with the following false headline posed as an honest question:

    ”  How Good are Obama’s re-election chances ? “   I suppose working on Obama’s re-election campaign is the utmost priority over at CBS and Time, considering the fact that they both spent the bulk of their airtime/ print space promoting him in 2008.  In reading this campaign ad, er.. I mean article, I was hoping to find signs that CBS might actually see the danger Obama and the democrats pose today to everything American, and come to their senses. As you can see here from the above linked article, CBS and Time are already trying to make Americans believe that no matter who runs against him in 2012, Barack will win a second term:

 ” So it’s a good time to ask: how good are his chances – at the moment, at least – to win a second term? The short answer is: Pretty decent.”  And as Time’s Michael Scherer notes, even those who disagree with Mr. Obama tend to like him – a crucial factor in winning the independents who broke from the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. The fact that 84 percent of Americans (according to an Associated Press poll last month) call Mr. Obama a likeable person speaks to his advantage among the casual voters who may not go to the polls in a midterm year but will cast ballots in 2012.” (emphasis mine)

    This is why I personally, do not take anything Time, CBS, and the AP say/print/report today seriously.  America is approaching $15 trillion dollars in debt, gasoline prices are now at $3.65 a gallon (as opposed to $1.84  when Obama took office), food prices are skyrocketing, federal revenue is shrinking ,with the fact that they are lying to themselves about the Unemployment numbers today and that will expose this very soon, we are now engaged in a 3rd war in Libya that has already cost us $600 million dollars, and CBS and Time want us to think that Obama will be re-elected because he is likeable ?  That is not news reporting there, that is campaign propaganda, period.

   That CBS/Time Obama campaign ad masquerading as a news piece also goes on to try to make it look like the Teaparty/GOP split will make the primaries such a difficult battle that it will alienate the swing voters, thus enabling Barack to win a second term. They are trying to suggest that swing voters will ignore the $15 trillion dollars in debt that Obama’s Liberal Democrats are refusing to take action on in passing the GOP proposed serious budget cuts, and re-elect the man who directs those actions?  These people are in for a rude awakening in 2012 that will make the 2010 election beatdown of the Democrat’s Liberal Socialist agenda pale in comparison.

Death Penalty Abolished in Illinois

Governor Pat Quinn, of Illinois recently signed into law the abolishment of the death penalty, and he also commuted all death row inmates sentences to life without  parole. When the abolition law takes effect July 1, Illinois becomes the 16th state without a death penalty. This issue can be very dangerous politically, as it has both fierce support and opposition in almost all walks of life. Why is it that some people can be against abortion, yet have spoken up in support of the death penalty, or vice versa?  The answer to that question lies within the auspices of  perception management, propaganda campaigns, and the usage of  *nudging* society to believe right is wrong or lies to be the truth.

Take for instance the hard core religious voters. While the bible says an eye for an eye, which should be quite self-explanatory, many Christians feel the death penalty is somehow inhumane or unfair. You know, turn the other cheek and all that kind of stuff, and forgive those who sin against us. Yet many people who have been victimized by the crazed murderers, rapists, and violent criminals of society, who have had their family crushed by the grief caused by these madmen, feel they are unworthy of living in a country where the rest of the citizens have to live by the rule of law and are held accountable for their actions. They then want them executed. The death penalty is the greatest deterrent we have in controlling the career criminals and murderers that prey on the decent people of our country. They tend think twice of  killing someone in cold blood, knowing that they themselves will be killed in return for the malicious actions. That is just a common sense fact of life, and it the main reason the death penalty was created in the first place.

The main problem in the death penalty debate seems to be indicative of the problems plaguing our country today, which stems from false perceptions being promoting by self-serving small groups representing  a minority of  people or instances that occurr in society. A great example of this can be seen in the case of the environmental activists, (whom are mostly supported and funded by the Leftists in America today), and how they are stopping us from using our own oil, while at the same time promoting green energy that is decades from becoming viable. Gasoline is now $4.00 a gallon in many States today and is expected to go much higher this summer, while billions of barrels of oil sit in South Dakota and Alaska untapped. This is directly due to the usage of false propaganda and data manipulation to create a false perception that we will all burn up tomorrow if we don’t stop using oil, the greatest energy resource on earth.  These people have proven to have manipulated data and flat out lied to advance their socialist agenda, yet this minority of green freaks, backed by leftist progressives, has been allowed to  cripple our own natural resources usage.  Then they have the audacity to holdup signs demanding that we decrease our dependence on Foreign oil through green scams like the now known to be very problematic,  Chevy Volt. Noone ever talks about the oil burning electricity it takes to charge those cars.  That is just plain ludicrous.

This same method of creating false perceptions has now created another travesty within the death penalty debate, yet it is one that these States that are abolishing the death penalty refuse to acknowledge. That being the huge expense of housing, feeding, medical care and securing mass murderers and the worst criminals of society for decades. In doing my research for this article, I got to thinking about just who would be behind this push to abolish the death penalty.  Meet the NCADP*, or the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.*

Here is just 3 of the 10 false perception propaganda lies they promote on their own homepage*:
 

     1. Executions are carried out at staggering cost to taxpayers. Here they want you to believe that the cost of a lethal injection, costs you more than housing, feeding, and securing these criminals for 20,30,40, and even 50 years! . They are creating a false perception that simply is not true.

    2. Capital punishment does not deter crime. Here they use an unnamed scientific study to try to make you believe that the death penalty does not deter serious, violent criminal activity. It is human nature and instinct to want to live as long as possible. When a criminal steps into the world of possibly murdering someone, I do not believe for one minute that the majority of them don’t think about receiving the death penalty when they get caught. They also do not take into account the people who commit crimes that could result in the death penalty that actually have their own perverted death wish. For one reason or the other they don’t want to live any more, therefore they want the death penalty. So the death penalty does deter crime. They are creating a false perception that simply is not true.

   4. Race plays a role in determining who lives and who dies. Since 1977, blacks and whites have been the victims of murders in almost equal numbers, yet 80% of the people executed in that period were convicted of murders involving white victims:   Here we have the ever-popular leftist tactic of playing the race card.  The NCADP doesn’t think you are smart enough to know that when the U. S. population has been predominantly white for decades, more whites will be the victims of murder. The reason that these numbers are proven to be wrong is in another fact that they fail to produce. At one point in recent history, when blacks compromised 17% of our population, they were responsible for over 70% of the violent crimes in America. Things such as black on black crime statistics have fluctuated immensely, depending on who you believe today also. Since the NCADP wants to inject the race card into the death penaly debate, I shall help them out with some statistics from the Justice Department in 1995 from ourcivilizaion.com**:

Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.

Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of whites.

According to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times the rate that whites murder blacks.

With statistics like those above, we see just how far the NCADP goes in creating a false perception that simply is not true. The fact is, that the death penalty is an important tool in deterring violent crime and murder in the United States today, and has been since it’s inception. It also helps prevent prison overcrowding and the very expensive burden of keeping these criminals from further harming society. It is also a form of closure for the many families that have been destroyed by the murder of a loved one, parent, or main breadwinner.  The bottom line here, is that we see once again how data and information are being distorted to push a group’s agenda through the blatant use of propaganda. The two men I consider to be the godfather’s of propaganda usage in America, Saul Alinsky and Edward Bernays would be  quite proud of the NCADP’s usage of propaganda campaigns to abolish the death penalty in America today.  As we see noted above, it has  already been abolished in 16 states or almost 1/3 of the total states in America.

Update for those who may doubt the progressive mindset and patterns of propaganda inherent in the NCADP, here is an interesting fact: NCADP is grateful for the support of Working Assets/CREDO as a 2009 grant recipient. Click here to learn more about Working Assets/CREDO and become a customer. Help us become a 2010 grant recipient by nominating us here.

Yes your tax dollars are being funneled to support another progressive propaganda group here. Just who are the Working Assets*** clan? Well this statement is from from their own homepage: “A legacy of progress: Since 1985, our members have raised over $65 million for progressive nonprofits.”  As they say if you dig deep enough into progressive so-called non-profit propaganda arms today, you will see your taxpayer dollars being used to further their Socialist agenda.

Eliot Spitzer’s New Show on CNN

    CNN’s vaunted latest attempt at a “news” show, Parker-Spitzer was laid to rest on the scrapheap of  failed Liberal hype and misinformation shows last week, where it certainly belongs. The true reasons behind the canceling of the show appear to be murky at best so far. One thing that does remain a constant over at CNN,  is the fact that they do not seem to be capable of learning from their mistakes. This show was a nightmare waiting to happen before it ever aired a single episode. Meet Eliot Spitzer former co-host of Parker Spitzer, pictured here with his private hooker from New York.

    Mr. Spitzer is the former Governor of NYC who was caught up in a prostitution scandal with the young lady pictured with him here,  Ashley Dupre’  aka “Kristen” who worked for The Emporer’s Club VIP escort service.  Spitzer was caught due to IRS reporting laws that make it mandatory to report all transactions over 10 grand. He later tried to break the payments to the offshore shell corporations up into smaller amounts, but was told it was too late to cover his tracks. He also tried to get his name taken off the accounts to also try to cover his tracks, but was told that it wasn’t possible. It was reported that Spitzer had several laisons with prostitutes during this time, paying over $15,000 dollars to the escort service, yet investigators revealed that he had  paid over $80,000 over a period of several years for escorts going back to when he was first the attorney general of N.Y.

    Governor Spitzer tried to dismiss the situation early to avoid any further scrutiny by calling a press conference on March 12th amid rumors of impeachment proceedings, to announce his resignation. Of note here is the fact that not a single N.Y.Democrat had the guts to speak up and demand this man’s resignation at the time. Those demands came from State Republican Minority Leader James Tedisco and U.S Congressman Steve King of N.Y.  I believe that in their constant quest for ruling powers, the Democratic Party had hoped to sweep this episode under the rug here, and let this man stay in office. If not, why didn’t they demand he resign? Another reason for my assumption there, is one other fact about the power structure of the Democratis Party being affected by this scandal, as discovered in this situation**:

By resigning as governor, Spitzer lost his status as a superdelegate in the 2008 Democratic nomination for president, depriving Hillary Clinton, whom he supported, of a superdelegate vote. This also reduced the total number of superdelegate votes available. Though David Paterson, the Lieutenant Governor of New York at the time and Spitzer’s eventual successor, is also a Democrat and a supporter of the Clinton campaign, Paterson already had a super delegate vote because of his status as a member in the Democratic National Committee and cannot vote twice.[48] Spitzer discussed his status as a superdelegate on The Colbert Report on February 12, 2008, the day before Spitzer met his escort at the Mayflower Hotel.[49]

Kristin M. Davis, a competing madam who was involved in the scandal, served four months of jail time on Rikers Island as a result of the scandal, and later announced a run for Spitzer’s old seat in the New York gubernatorial election, 2010. Davis finished in last place among those on the ballot.

 

    There sits the proof of why the Democratic Party chose to try to ignore this scandal. This is also proof that Mr. Spitzer is nothing more today than a propagandist, spewing misinformation for the Liberal Democratic Party agenda over on CNN.  The Parker-Spitzer show failed miserably in the ratings department and that  all was falsely blamed on Kathleen Parker.  She was hired to bring a Conservative perspective to the show, as we were told by CNN. Now CNN, in it’s infinite wisdom of following up failures with bigger blunders, has given this propagandist and adulterer, Spitzer a new show, In The Arena. I was channel-flipping last night, when I caught a glimpse of just what this Democratic Media Operative is trying to pass off as fact on his new CNN show. He stated that passing the Bush Tax cuts extension bill, ( which just kept tax rates the same across the board) has raised our National Debt by $3.6 trillion dollars. Read that one again folks. CNN is getting exactly what it pays for here once again: Liberal Propaganda in the extreme.

     Let me explain Spitzer’s statement in simple language right here and right now. If the government took in $1000.00 dollars last year due to revenue dictated by the tax rates, then this year they will take in the same amount, $1000.00  There was no tax cut, or decrease in the taxes being taken in, therefore the tax rate staying the same will  will keep the revenue the same, not raise the national debt on it’s own. That is done only by the irresponsible spending, waste and fraud that is running so rampant from within our government today, which is direct a result of the last four years of Democratic control of  Congress, in which we piled up over $6 trillion in debt, not counting the 2 trillion Obamacare will cost us in the first 10 years, according to the CBO. So much for winning the future.

A Totally Shocking Call from My Grandmother, a Lifelong Democrat.

      My Grandmother was born in 1917, and is now 93 years old. She called here earlier this week, and the discussion that followed was very informative about what is happening in today’s political arena and why. The phone rang and I hear my Mother getting into a heated discussion about the state of America today, and President Obama.  My mother is also a lifelong Democrat like my Grandmother , but there is one glaring difference between the two today.  That difference can be summed up by the fact that my Mother is now a registered Republican who has seen the total dismantling of the true Democratic Party that both of them grew up worshipping.  Gram, on the other hand, while on the phone was sounding more like Nancy Pelosi than the woman who had raised my Mother.  To say the fur was flying here during this “discussion” would be a huge understatement. I hear my Mother asking my Grandmother things like ,” Oh ya, just what has Obama done for this country today, and Do you know how far in debt this man has put this country in 2 short years Ma?”  My Mother informs me that Gram said we are $14 trillion dollars in debt today because of George Bush! I could just sense my Mother’s head getting ready to explode. Mom is a retired doctor’s office manager and insurance billing expert, who really knows the damage to our health system Obamacare will do, and also has a good head for figures and budgeting as far as our debt is concerned. Boy things were heating up real fast here.

     The conversation reached a feverish pitch, and knowing that my Mother has high blood pressure, I realised that I had better try to defuse the situation, so I headed on into the living room. You see, both of these women are very strong-minded to put it lightly, and as to not get myself in trouble here. You can bet both of them will be either hearing or reading about this article airing some family business here eventually. I don’t write this easily, or with any bad intentions. My reason for writing it is very simple. There is an all-telling pattern here, of just how bad the malfeasance and misinformation in the media is today, and how they have affected all parts of our society. Gram is 93 years old, and Mom is the next generation, then there is myself and my siblings, and after that comes the grand-kids and  great grand-kids.     Starting with Gram, our family has seen 17 Presidents, starting with Woodrow Wilson, who was in office when Gram was born. With the start of propaganda campaigns way back in the days of Edward Bernays, who started his propaganda career in 1913 as a “press agent,” I find myself wondering  just how much  Bernay’s early propaganda campaigns could have affected my Grandmother’s opinions of  what is right and wrong in the world today. Check out Bernay’s bio at the bottom of the page for a look into the start of propaganda and mind manipulation in America.* Very interesting information there.

     During the telephone conversation, I originally intended to try to calm my Mom down when I walked into the living room. I could see that my Mom was getting nowhere with her Mother and getting very upset. What I didn’t count, on was my Mother handing me the phone and telling me,” Here, you talk some sense into her.” So I took a deep breath and took the phone. I started off with the usual, “Hi Gram how are you, hope your are feeling better today.”  You see, my Mother knows that I know my facts bout our situation in America today, and the fact that I will never be bullied by someone giving blind support to the Obama agenda just because they are  a life-long Democrat. That kind of thinking has us in real trouble today. That is also why I am a registered Independent. It doesn’t take long before my Grandmother gets around to talking politics and about one Barack Hussein Obama. I had just heard her control the conversation with my mother through the very same tactics used by the Liberal ( fake Democratic) party of today. I decided right then and there, that I would take charge of the conversation immediately and I did so as gently as could be done. I told Gram the basics of the Media (Bernay’s method) propaganda and that I don’t get my news from the TV today like she does. Then I laid out some facts for her, with the understanding that my facts come from Congressional records, reports, and legislation that I had personally read. I also told her I don’t  make statements or write news articles based solely on some self-important clown’s opinion that I see on TV. Most of those people today have an agenda, and are effectively working hard to change the way people perceive the truth to be.  I try to deal in facts Gram, period.  She asked a few mild questions, and I knew right then and there that this conversation would be a real eye-opener for my Grandmother, God Bless her. 

     Gram’s take on our national debt was initially stated as that it is ALL George Bushes fault. Geez, I wonder where she heard that from? Yes, she watches a little TV nowadays, since she no longer gets around much. My rebuttal to her thinking that all of today’s current debt is GWB’s fault, was that while the Democrats have controlled the U. S. Senate and House for the last 4 full years,  our National Debt** has risen from $8.5 trillion dollars at the end of 2006, to a whopping $13.5 trillion at the end of 2010.  Grams response? Oh really, that much? Well Gram that is not totally true, as we have to add the residue of the Democrats current spending spree, aided by irresponsible Republicans for the last decade , and the $1.62 trillion dollars of more debt projected for 2011. Then I proceeded to tell her that the next time the grand-kids and great grand-kids come over to visit her, right down to the babies in the strollers, remember that each of them owes an incredible $1 million and 15,000 dollars*** right now, before many of them even get into school. I,d also like to hear you explain how good Obama and the current Liberal Democrats are for those children today Gram. Score one for the truth in numbers theory there.

    Gram thinks Obamacare will be very good for her and the country. Oh really Gram? How can that be, when the first program to be cut to pay for free healthcare for the non-producing freeloaders of society and illegal aliens who are not U.S citizens,  is the $500 billion dollars Obama is taking out of your very own medicare plan? Her reply? ” That’s not true Daniel.”  “I,m sorry Gram, yes it is,  it is just that the Obama administration and today’s Media propagandists you are watching on your TV want you to just forget about that little fact. How are you going to have better medical care, Gram when they take away $500 billion from your medicare program? ”  “Oh my gosh,” was the only response to that fact. Unlike the Democrats and ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gram, I actually read the bill, instead of waiting until they passed it to find out what was in it, as the former Speaker of the House stated on National TV.  That is correct Gram, they passed a  2000 page bill onto the American people without even reading it, or knowing what is in it. This is not the Democratic Party you grew up with that actually represented the working class people and the poor in this country. This is a group of Socialists borderline Communists that are trying to collapse America’s economy through wealth redistribution. The proof is in the fact that Obama wants to take billions of dollars of Seniors medicare and share it with non-producing people and illegal aliens, which they are doing right now anyway. I gave her some stats on  just one hospital in Texas that I had on hand, about the millions of medicaid dollars spent on illegal anchor babies being born there. She was so shocked to hear the truth, that all she could ask is how can they get away with that stuff today? The answer to that little question lies directly in the facts about how certain  Democratic Party controlled States have been spawning illegal sanctuary cities. See California, Washington State and Oregon to name a few.

       “These people are nothing like the true Democrats you and Gramps had been voting for all your lives.” This statement lead to the next revelation about the new Democrats of today, that my 93 year old Grandmother is still worshipping based solely on the principles of  the Democratic values of 50 years ago. I asked her, “Do you know that the Democrats organized a One Nation Rally*** in Washington DC Gram?”  “What was this,” she asked. I replied, “Well, we had many Unions there that all support and give millions in campaign contributions to Obama and  today’s Democrats, Gram. There was also Communist propaganda and books, like the famous Communist Manifesto sold at this rally, Gram.”  “You are kidding me Daniel,” she replied, “That surely can’t be true, right in our nation’s capitol?”  I replied, ” I,m sorry to tell you this Gram, but it is true, and I have the pictures of the One Nation Rally in DC to prove it!”  The silence on the other end of the line was quite saddening. I do not like tearing down the Democratic Party that my Grandmother has been a part of  for several decades, yet neither do I want her unknowingly spreading today’s liberal propaganda onto the next generations of our family that visit her these days. Our youth are our future, and they are also more easily manipulated by propaganda than us older folks that understand the importance of our capitalistic system. That evil capitalism that the Liberals hate so much has ensured prosperity for our people, and it has proven to do so during our country’s entire existence.

   My Grandmother has been a lifelong very devoted Catholic who believes in the Lord and prays daily. When I explained about the Liberal/Democratic agenda of  banning the pledge of allegiance and daily prayer we have seen recently, or any reference to God almighty in our school system being condemned, her very animated response was pretty much self-exclamatory: “What kind of people would do such terrible stuff ?” My response? “Today’s Liberal Democratic Party is who is behind that stuff!”  That lead to a discussion about our founding fathers and whether they were religious or not. Gram’s response? “Of course they believed in God, Daniel, they were very hard working men who prayed daily.” I said,  “Not according to most of today’s Democrats.”

    While our conversation went further into other assorted topics of today’s politics, the main lesson I was trying to convey to her was that the once heroic news broadcasts of years gone by appear to have been an experiment in mind manipulation that was created to change people’s perception of  what was happening in America at the time.  With Mr. Bernay’s admissions of his usage of the media to manipulate the masses as early as 1913,  four years before my Grandmother was born, we have to wonder about FDR’s Fireside Chat radio newscasts to the nation back in the 1930’s, and wonder how truthful they actually were. Looking back at my conversation with my Grandmother recently, and her blanket statement of how good President Obama is doing for the country today while we face $15 trillion dollars in debt  by the end of this year, I,d have to say the Bernay’s media manipulation experiment is being proven to be very successful . My Grandmother,  a lifelong  supporter of the Democratic Party that used to actually stand for the poor and working class, while also working for the betterment of the country, is now in support of the Liberal Socialist Party of today. I,m sorry Gram, but this is not the Democratic Party that the propagandists are working so hard to make you believe.  As a matter of fact, they are just the opposite.
