So here we have Hollywood taking a terribly skewed view of reality. It seems to love to make the white man look racist…
What’s wrong with Hollywood?
The makers of the new movie “Selma” apparently just couldn’t resist taking dramatic, trumped-up license with a true story that didn’t need any embellishment to work as a big-screen historical drama. As a result, the film falsely portrays President Lyndon B. Johnson as being at odds with Martin Luther King Jr. and even using the FBI to discredit him, as only reluctantly behind the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and as opposed to the Selma march itself.
In fact, Selma was LBJ’s idea, he considered the Voting Rights Act his greatest legislative achievement, he viewed King as an essential partner in getting it enacted — and he didn’t use the FBI to disparage him.
That this is happening should surprise no one… That there is finally some pushback by journalists is what IS surprising…
This is just part and parcel of Obama’s socialist agenda. The old soviets had a saying about their newspaper called the “Truth.” They said there is no truth in the news, and no news in the Truth. We are very close to that today in America.
In unprecedented criticism of the White House, 38 journalism groups have assailed the presidents team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials and overall “politically-driven suppression of the news.”In a letter to President Obama, the 38, led by the Society of Professional Journalists, said efforts by government officials to stifle or block coverage has grown for years and reached a high-point under his administration despite Obamas 2008 campaign promise to provide transparency.
The lawlessness in the Obama administration is manifest. You won’t read about this in any mainstream media. Just bow down to our Dear Leader:
“These new emails show that the day before she broke the news of the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner was talking to a top Obama Justice Department official about whether the DOJ could prosecute the very same organizations that the IRS had already improperly targeted,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The IRS emails show Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted in the IRS scandal.
“He has through his subordinates and agents endeavored to cause in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.” Section 1, Article 2, the Impeachment Articles of Richard Nixon.

So Barry promised the Russians he could be “more flexible” with disarming America after his reelection. Now we have the Russians flying dangerously close to our protected areas as a means of intimidating this pansy for a President…
This is sickening and threatens the balance of power. It’s not enough that Barry promotes Islam world wide, weakens our energy production and economy with absurd Global Warming regulations, opens our borders to illegals to inundate our social welfare systems (go garner Democrat votes), expands food stamps and a million other welfare programs (again, to garner Dem votes)…
So, now, he is bending the US over to get a royal screwing by Russia…
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney, a former Alaska Air Command commander, said: “The Russians continue to play the administration like a fiddle, sending signals that they still have a strategic air force and can project power while the U.S. continues to ground alert squadrons and unilateral disarms.”“Is this the administration’s idea of ‘reset relations’ with Russia?” he asked.
Oh, I get it. What garbage. All it will take is for someone to complain that so-and-so was pushing his views and wham, down will come the anti-Christian brass…
We are losing our country to leftists who hate God (but love Islam).
WASHINGTON — It’s OK to evangelize. But it’s not OK to proselytize.
That’s what the Pentagon said Thursday, attempting to clarify its position on religious speech in uniform as controversy swirled up around press reports over possible prosecutions of troops for sharing their faith.
What it comes down to, officials said, is that discussing matters of faith and religious practice with a willing audience is allowed, but pushing religious beliefs on those who don’t want to hear it is a form of harassment forbidden under Defense Department policies.
This is the most stunning thing I have seen so far from liberals…
On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’
“The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states. “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.
The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.
“This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states,” the worksheet reads. “So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.”
Again, we find Obama operatives in the military working to demonize Christianity. Recall my article at American Thinker on this issue…
The Defense Department came under fire Thursday for a U.S. Army Reserve presentation that classified Catholics and Evangelical Protestants as “extremist” religious groups alongside al Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan.
Barry worked for ACORN which pressured banks into making bad loans to folks who the banks knew wouldn’t be able to keep up with payments. This was what started the housing bubble that burst and destroyed the American economy… All intentionally, I might add.
So, is anyone surprised that Barry is pushing the same. Now?
The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place.
In a desire to remove all things gun related from American culture, a school board in Anne Arundel County, Maryland has suspended use of the letter “L” in Baltimore area schools, citing the letter’s resemblance to a handgun.
Dr. Michelle Gramig, Anne Arundel County School Board Commissioner, is leading the crusade against the 12th letter of our alphabet. “There mere presence of a pictogram that resembles a gun is evidence of the violence inherent in the system,” Gramig told CNN. “And we teach these letters to children.”
