Herman Cain In The News Again- A Skit

Open the scene at a national lame stream media newscast

News Anchor:  “We have a report from the scene that Republican Candidate Herman Cain is attempting to swat a dangerous mosquito.  We will be going to our field reporter later in the news cast.  This is really big, a man swatting at a mosquito that could knock him out of the presidential race.  This is a story that could end a bid for a presidential nomination.  More later on that but for now we will take a commercial break.”

Now Behind the scenes, off air, what the viewers can’t see or hear:

Field Anchor:  (Laughing) “You should see this guy. I keep telling him there is a mosquito buzzing his head but there isn’t.  He’s waving, and waving.  This is hilarious.”

Anchor:  “You idiot, we have been hyping this story since the beginning of the telecast.  We can’t go to the audience and tell them it is a fake story to waste their time and unfairly destroy a career.  What are we going to do”?

P.R. Man:  “Don’t worry.  Just begin to talk about what a pathetic job he is doing swatting at the mosquito”.

Anchor: “They won’t buy that”.

P. R. Man:  “Yes they will. Our viewers are so stupid they would believe it was snowing in hell if we had fire, snow, and a guy in a devil suit in the same picture.  And we can get the Republican talking heads to agree with us because they want the air time”.

Anchor: “What about the TEA Party and Cain supporters?”

P. R. Man: “Don’t worry about them. We will just call them racists, mosquito-phobes, and Nazi’s, you know, like we usually do. Our viewers will eat that up, all 2% of them.”

Now to the report:

Anchor: “Now we go to our field reporter who is with Herman Cain.”

Field Reporter:  “Thank you, anchor. I am here with Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.  He is swatting at what he thinks is a mosquito.  No one has actually seen the mosquito but it has been reported by anonymous sources that one is actually hovering around his head. What is unique about this story is that he can’t seem to hit the mosquito.  He doesn’t seem to be capable of swatting this mosquito because he isn’t holding his hand in the right position.   Mr. Cain, you seem to be having a hard time with this mosquito.”

Herman Cain:  “I don’t see any mosquito.   I don’t hear any mosquito.  Where is this mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, how does it feel to not be able to swat this mosquito you can’t see or hear?”

Herman Cain: “Do you see a mosquito?”

Field Reporter:  “Mr. Cain, there must be a mosquito.   We have reports of a mosquito hovering around your head.  I don’t need to see the mosquito, it has been reported to exist.”

Herman Cain:   (stops waving , frustrated by now) “Do you see a mosquito? Show me this mosquito you keep telling me about and I will swat it.  There is no mosquito for me to swat.”

Field Reporter: “Well, Mr. Cain has stopped swatting at the mosquito and has yelled at me. How could he talk to me that way?  Mr. Cain, has spoken rudely to this reporter.  Now back to the anchor desk” (reporter breaks into sobbing)

Anchor: “Thank you field reporter.  Well that was just unnecessary.  Not only can Mr. Cain not swat the reported mosquito, he has been gruff to a member of the media.  Analyst, what do you think of this little outrage?”

Analyst: “Well it is obvious that Mr. Cain is not very good at swatting mosquitos.  Not only can he not swat a mosquito properly, he seemed to get miffed because we kept reporting on a mosquito that wasn’t there instead of listening to what he had to say about the economy.  It is painfully obvious to this analyst that Mr. Cain does not realize who he is speaking to.  He will learn to bow to us like the other Republicans do.”

Anchor:  “Thank you, Analyst, I quite agree. Now a word from our sponsor.”

Off air once again:

P.R. Man: (Comes running in): “That was great. Everyone in every media outlet is talking about how bad Herman Cain is at swatting mosquitos. They have no idea that the reported mosquito doesn’t even exist.  And our viewers are all talking about Cain’s mosquito swatting technique. By the time they figure out there was no mosquito Herman Cain will be ruined.”

Anchor:  “We really pulled that one off. Everyone is talking about how a man can’t swat a mosquito that doesn’t exist.  We have total control of public opinion. I AM ALL POWERFUL!!!! Now the rest of the candidates will bow down to us and be afraid to oppose anything we say. If they do, we can do the same thing to them and all the others will cower before us.” (Maniacal Laughter).

 

We Can NEVER Stop Combating The MSM – Rich Already Pay "Fair Share" of Taxes

MSM, OWS, Obama Administration

The OWS gang and President Barack Obama want the “rich” to pay their fair share of taxes. With that “fair share” statement in mind, let’s (again) look at income taxes and who pays them. Why again? Because the MSM covers the OWS and Obama administration and promotes the “fair share” message. We can never stop broadcasting the truth! Combating the MSM can never stop because the MSM never stops.

Taxes

While it is true, as the OWS gang claims, that the “rich” are making more of the income (20%), they are also paying most of the income taxes (38%). Since 1980 the rich’s share of income has doubled, but so have income taxes. Those making at least $114,000 in 2008 (the last complete year from the IRS), earned 45% of the nation’s income, and paid 70% of all taxes. The top 25% of earners, those earning at least $67,200, took in 67% of the income, and paid 86% of the income tax total. The average income tax rate paid by those in the bottom half of the income scale is only 2.6%. Couple those facts with the fact that, in 2010, 47% of households paid no income tax. In fact, some in that group will be getting money from the federal government.

Tax Rates

One thing the MSM and Democrats love to focus upon is how tax rates have fallen for the “rich.” The latest manifestation comes in the form of the “Buffett Rule.” “[Last year] what I paid was only 17.4% of my taxable income — and that’s actually a lower percentage than what was paid by any of the other 20 people in our office,” wrote Buffett. Obama chimed in, “Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. That’s pretty straightforward.” That is what the MSM reported, but they did not report WHY Buffett paid a lower rate. There are two fundamental reasons. Buffett makes a lot of money from investments, which are taxed at a lower rate than wages. And the Social Security tax applies only to the first $106,800 in wages.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, chairman of the DNC, said that we’re at the lowest tax rate since the 1950s. When Wolf Blitzer of CNN (no bastion of conservatism) pointed out to her that the “rich” pay a huge chunk of the federal income tax, Wasserman-Schultz responded, “But they’re still at the lowest tax rate since the 1950s.”

As can be seen in terms of who pays taxes, there is a big difference between taxes paid and tax rates. Besides, if some of the “rich” want to pay higher taxes in the form of gifts, they are free to do so.

The Deficit and “Tax the Rich”

To partially offset his massive overspending, Obama proposes to raise taxes on the “rich.” His class warfare plan can take him only so far since the rich don’t earn enough to make up the difference for all the spending he plans. The proposed Obama tax hikes, in the next ten years, will take almost $700 billion from taxpayers. That is only 8 percent of the nearly $9 trillion President Obama’s budget adds in debt over that same period. Low tax revenues are not the cause of the debt explosion, spending is.

Bush Tax Cuts

The MSM and Obama administration never tire of demonizing the “Bush tax cuts.” They contend that the tax cuts put more of the burden on the backs of the middle class and the poor. But that is simply not true. An analysis of Treasury Department data shows that the “rich” are paying more than they would have paid, not less, after the Bush tax cuts.

And they like to maintain that the “Bush tax cuts” favored the “rich.” In a static world that is true. But the world isn’t static, it’s dynamic. There was more investment, more hiring by businesses, and a stronger stock market. Comparing taxes paid under the old system with those paid after the Bush tax cuts, the rich actually paid a higher proportion of income taxes. The latest IRS data show an increase of more than $100 billion in tax payments from the wealthy by 2005 alone. Why can’t Obama and his economic advisors learn this one fact? But I guess it’s easier to promote “class warfare” by mixing apples and oranges, a static world with a dynamic world.

They also maintain that gains by the rich come at the expense of a declining living standard for the middle class and poor. Again, that is simply not true. The middle class (defined as those between the 40th and the 60th percentiles of income) isn’t falling behind or disappearing, it is actually getting richer. The lower income bound for the middle class has risen by about $12,000 (after inflation) since 1967. The upper income bound for the middle class is now roughly $68,000, $23,000 higher than in 1967. A family in the 60th percentile has 50 percent more real income (buying power) than 30 years ago. And the same thing is happening to the “poor.” Real income levels of the poorest 20% of Americans have actually risen. Economics professor Steve Horwitz explains why this is true.

Conclusion

The rich aren’t paying their fair share, they’re paying their unfair share. But the MSM, OWS gang, and the Obama administration ever let facts or the truth get in their way. And have you noticed that they (MSM, OWS gang, Obama administration) never cite references or analyze data? All they can do is repeatedly play the “class warfare” card.

But that’s just my opinion.

Glenn Beck Comes Out Swinging with New GBTV Show

Glenn Beck is back on the airwaves as promised, as this week he launched GBTV.

The first show was broadcast across his internet TV channel as America was revisiting the 911 Muslim terrorist attacks on America in memorials across the nation. Beck’s first target was President Obama’s fake jobs bill and our economy.

THE TRUTH About Our Economy

Next up, Beck takes on The Muslim Brotherhood, creeping Sharia law and the disgraceful perversion of the civil rights movement by the radical social engineering puppets within our society and very own government!

Glenn Beck is now free from the censorship of the big government media puppets and big corporation political correctness that masquerade as the mainstream news organizations of today. Like him or hate him, Beck delivers hard-hitting, fact-filled exposure of big government and their propagandist brainwashing of the dumbed down masses by controlling the media, with an always-present dose of historical context and reality that is hard to deny. Love him or hate him, realists can not deny the value of Glenn Beck’s shows in helping to expose the radical Socialist element of today’s fake Democratic Party in America.

Note: Glenn Beck’s new TV show is free for the first two weeks when you sign up here. Free, no strings attached, cancel at anytime.

TIME Editor Calls Obama ‘A Dick’ On Live TV- MSNBC Suspends Him


Time Magazine Editor Mark Halperin should have known better. While on-air “gaffes” are not rare, a media member flatly stating his opinion on-the-air only because he thought it could censored out later is not a common occurrence. Perhaps Mark should take some motherly advice- “If you can’t say something nice about someone, say nothing at all!”

That might be too much to ask in this day and age where everyone thinks their opinion matters (point proven in this article as I, the author give my personal opinion).

Then again… maybe Mr.  Halperin was right. While a lady should never talk that way, I would have to agree with his assessment of the President’s attitude yesterday.

What I find sadly amusing is how this situation has played out this morning.

First there was the incident itself.

Then came the syrupy-sweet apology.

Then MSNBC announced that Mark Halperin, the reporter who made the “gaffe”, was “indefinitely suspended”.

The video posted does not show the entire exchange between Joe Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski during Mr. Halperin’s apology, but it has been mysteriously scrubbed from the internet. Ms. Brzezinski was what I would call syrupy-sweet and very over-the-top in saying that they also apologized, etc., etc., etc., blah, blah, blah.

I find interesting that  Mr. Halperin has been “indefinitely suspended” for his remarks, yet it’s “anything goes” when discussing Conservatives. Just a few examples for you to mull over:

  • Chris Matthews calls Michele Bachmann a “balloon head”
  • Some have said that MSNBC has an “almost unhealthy obsession with Sarah Palin”- and I am sure it is obvious their “obsessive” coverage of Governor Palin is not positive
  • Specifically, Governor Palin was blamed by NUMEROUS MSNBC  (as well as other MSM outlets) hosts, pundits, etc. for the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords
  • Ed Schultz, another MSNBC host, was given a slap-on-the-wrist discipline of a one week suspension for calling Conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham a slut
  • Cenk Uygur, yet another MSNBC host, mocked a gay GOProud chairman in an on-air interview

These are just a few of the endless remarks against Conservatives that have had little or no repercussions for the offender.

Another interesting note for readers. In my research for this article, I read that the rumor mill is churning with whispers of CBS possibly being in talks to steal “Morning Joe” and replace their never ending boring morning programming with Joe and Mika. I’m guessing the rumor mill may be grinding to a halt after today’s fiasco.

The United States Enters 4th War? Against Pakistan?

We see some more startling news about supposedly NATO gunships now attacking a Pakistani Army post and injuring two soldiers today. From CNSNEWS.COM:

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) — A NATO helicopter attacked a Pakistani army post near the Afghan border Tuesday, injuring two Pakistani soldiers in an incident that could further increase tension following the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

A Pakistani Army post on the border with Afghanistan gets attacked by a gunship chopper and a NATO puppet says that yes there has been an “incident” and we will have to access the situation. Why isn’t the U.S. Military Commander in charge there answering questions and explaining why we have now attacked Pakistan on their own soil ?  I do believe this is turning out to be just like in Libya, where a bomb strike murdered 3 innocent children and Ghaddafi’s son, and the only explanation we have to date is that it was a “NATO” plane. Why are the people not being told if it was a U.S. plane ( most likely), or a plane from another country that bombed those innocent children? Maybe if we made G.W. Bush Preisdent for one more day the supposed mainstream media would have the courage to investigate and report the facts behind the bombing? I am pretty certain that Bush would be called a murderer and war criminal if he had attacked Libya under these same conditions. Thus the media spin and lies continue today, in keeping Americans in the dark about the truth. So who attacked Pakistan today ?

There were helicopters operating in the border region, and we are aware there has been an incident, said NATO coalition spokesman Lt. Col. John Dorrian. “But we are going to have to assess the situation.”He declined to give further details or say which NATO country was involved. (emphasis mine)

Just as the U.S. is now hiding behind the NATO coalition disguise to wage an illegal war action against Libya, it now appears it is being used here to deny accountability for today’s attack on Pakistan. The fact is, that most Helicopter gunships flying in this region are in fact, AMERICAN.

Pakistani troops responded with machine gun fire and deployed two helicopter gunships over the post, but the American NATO helicopter had already left, they said. ( strikeout is mine)

Is the U.S. now at war with Pakistan, making us involved in a record four wars at one time ?  It will be interesting to see the spin and misinformation to come out of the media propagandists when the White House gives its mandated talking points in order to cover this debacle up. One thing is for sure, Obama has already played most of his “blame Bush” cards, but now he can just blame a mysterious, unidentified NATO gunship as the culprit here. People can not call anyone a war criminal for the murder of innocents in Libya, and now nobody can be held accountable for today’s attack on a Pakistani Army post. Isn’t this convenient for the previously anti-war Senator Obama? It sure is, seeing as he is in perpetual campaign mode 24/7, some year and a half before the 2012 elections.

 

 

Leaderless in Libya: The Propaganda Behind It

Saturday a NATO air-strike designed to protect the Rebels against Gadhafi’s use of military might ended up killing 13 rebels. Once again we see just what happens when a leaderless group of Rebels tries to wage a war with the help of an undefined and leaderless coalition. While the news reports are sketchy at best, as it has been from the (start of this fiasco, the Rebels appear to have advanced right into the NATO  air-strike. The difference between Bush in Iraq and Obama in Libya can be summed up in one easy word: forgiveness.  Bush was called a war criminal for trying to help Iraq install a Democracy, where the other Hussein (Saddam) made Gadhafi look like a Nobel Peace prize winner by comparison. The number of proven murders by Saddam Hussein in Iraq outweighs the number of suggested murders of civilians by Ghadafi in Libya by about 200,000 to 1 according to past U.N. estimates.  Bush is still called a war criminal  yet today we see Barack Hussein Obama forgiven immediately when 13 Rebels get killed in a leaderless war in Libya.  From the USAToday:

A NATO air-strike intended to thwart Moammar Gadhafi‘s forces killed 13 rebel fighters in eastern Libya instead, the opposition said Saturday, but they described it as an “unfortunate accident” and stressed it did not diminish their support for the international air campaign.

This is so hypocritical in both how it has been reported, and also in how it seems that civilian casualties are understood as necessary in Libya, yet in Iraq, where Taliban/Al Qaeda soldiers used Mosques and civilians as shields on a daily basis, if one person became collateral damage, it was time to get the rope and hang President Bush from the highest tree.  Another possible underlying fact that could explain this blatant hypocrisy, is that Bush is a Christian, and Barack Hussein Obama is Muslim in name at the minimum.Make no mistake, this is Obama’s illegal war in Libya. The killing of civilians in Libya is now quickly forgiven as an “unfortunate accident.”

The CIA has been involved in this war since before the American people were even given any clue as to the possible U.S. military intervention in Libya, and the underpinnings were reported here, which was later on proven to be the truth here.

Also of note in the leaderless war in Libya, is the fact that I am seeing new weapons in the hands of the Rebels despite Obama and his media propagandists refusing to admit we are arming the Rebels.  Take a look at the brand spanking new weapon and fatigues on the Rebel pictured below.

Just last week we heard cries from this ragtag bunch of dysfunctional Rebels that they need Cash and weapons immediately. Sure looks like they are getting it in that picture, yet our so-called journalists across the world fail to point this out. Arming the Rebels is a direct violation of so many U.N. and NATO laws and charters that admitting it could bring out worldwide calls for criminal charges for everyone involved. This also makes a very good case for Obama trying to hide behind NATO in this illegal war action, as when there is no stated person in charge, no charges can be filed for things like the killing of civilians. Call is a worldwide NATO coalition for a Kinetic Military action in Libya, and therefore make it impossible to hold anyone accountable in the future.

Also of note is the fact that the CIA has been on the ground in Libya since before this illegal war started, and their expertise lies in the arming and support of the overthrow of governments throughout history. To this day, the secret order Obama signed allowing for the CIA boots on the ground in Libya is still just that: A secret order to undermine a foreign Government.

Now we see that the rebels have a “spokesman.”  From the USA Today article once again we see apparent media control and the possibilities for propaganda bulltins grows considerably:

Another opposition spokesman, Abdel-Hafidh Ghoga, said it was an example of the lack of coordination in the ranks that has proven a key obstacle to victory over the more organized Libyan military. “This unfortunate accident was a mistake that was caused by the rebels’ advance during the coalition’s attack,” Ghoga said. “Now the military leadership that has been organized more effectively recently is working on preventing the recurrence of these accidents. (emphasis mine)

There we see instant forgiveness for the killing of civilians in wartime in Libya being called an unfortunate accident. This is called collateral damage, and there has never been a war throughout world history that didn’t involve some type of collateral damage.  It is just that in Libya today, it is now termed an acceptable “unfortunate accident,” while in Iraq it demanded that George Bush be labelled a war criminal.  Thus the war in Libya remains a leaderless kinetic military action, brought about by the leaderless Rebels, simply in order to try to cover up the fact that this is an illegal war started by one Barack Hussein Obama.

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011, 13 Muslim rebels were killed by a NATO air-strike designed to protect them, yet all is forgiven the minute it happened by everyone involved.  Somewhere behind all of this is a propaganda minister pulling the media strings, and surely  Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, a German  politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany would be nodding  his head in approval today.

Clinton/Gates Prep Nation for Obama’s Libya Spin Tonight: Fox left out again

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made the rounds on the Sunday talk show circuit in a seemingly weak attempt to explain to the nation our unexplained involvement in the Libyan Civil War of 2011.  Let’s see here, they were on ABC’s ” This Week, ” NBC’s ” Meet the Press ,” and CBS’s ” Face the Nation. ”  Wait a minute, isn’t there a Sunday show on Fox ? Isn’t our Government supposed to be accessible to all major media networks ?  Then why would they refuse to go on Chris Wallace’s ” Fox News Sunday ” show ?

To say the least, Chris Wallace was somewhat surprised at the blatant unfairness in the Obama administration’s decision in not making Clinton/Gates available to ” Fox News Sunday, ” and its millions of viewers.  I personally caught the slight right away, and refused to give my viewership stat to the MSM Obama puppet propagandist stations, instead I was relegated to reading about it on the internet. However I did catch the following video clip from Fox News, explaining it :

This is typical of the Obama administrations pattern of picking and chosing  just who gets access to the important governmental officials of the last two years. How the entire American population can sit around criticizing other nation’s dictatorial treatment of the press, while allowing this kind of  denial of access to Fox News is beyond rationalizing. This also goes against the promise that this administration will be the most open and transparent in our history. Apparently that open government, now means open, only to those who fail to hold this administration’s feet to the fire for engaging in an illegal war in Libya without the permission of Congress. Open only to those who get all tingly when Obama speaks, while ignoring the blatant lies and misinformation coming out of the Whitehouse today.

These kinds of  pathetic manipulations of our media should not only be condemned by all Americans today, but also by the cronies that Obama is favoring here. Think about this after we take over the U.S. Senate and Whitehouse in 2012:  How about our new Republican President denying all the Obama media puppets access to anyone in our government for four straight years and only letting them go on Fox News ?  Maybe we will let  ABC, CBS, and NBC show reruns of all the Fox News  Sunday interviews during the following week, when it is already yesterday’s news. Think about that.

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.
