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.
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.
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.
When Investor’s Business Daily is asking questions, you know there is an issue…
“The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” LaMalfa wrote in the letter.
While lower-level officials talk to the press, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano apparently doesnt want to tell Congress herself the reasons for these purchases.
“They have no answer for that question. They refuse answer that,” Congressman Timothy Huelskamp R-Kan. told reporters recently, adding, “They refuse to let us know what is going on, so I dont really have an answer for that. Multiple members of Congress are asking those questions.
“Homeland Security has acquired a number of Mine Resistant Armored Protection MRAP vehicles which have been retrofitted for possible service on the streets of the U.S. They were formerly used for counterinsurgency in Iraq. These vehicles are specifically designed to resist mines and ambush attacks.
As we noted in a recent editorial, DHS is also seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56-by-45-millimeter NATO “personal defense weapons” — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians.
If there are plausible explanations for all this, some congressmen would like to hear them.
Maybe DHS can answer Congress questions in a series of bullet points.
Known as the “Gun Tip Line”, New Yorkers can call a toll free hotline to alert police if they believe someone they know has an illegal gun. The call would be picked up by state police and local law enforcement would be notified if the tip seemed reliable.
If there was an arrest the tipster would receive as much as $500.
“This initiative seeks to turn neighbor against neighbor and use their own tax dollars to pay for the $500 rewar
We see this in our schools, where the lowest achievers are heaped with effort to “close the gap” while the top achievers are accused of being too “white” and are thus left to toil on their own.
So, here, in the military, the leftists are doing the same:
The socialist levelers currently in power cannot understand or abide the inescapable truth that some deeds — and some people — are more worthy than others. Thus, the levelers desperately seek ways of deconstructing the institutions and traditions that cherish and celebrate such deeds and such men. At its heart, liberalism, progressivism, socialism, fascism or Marxism — call it what you will — is simply an ideological system built upon envy and resentment.
Today, at American Thinker. Recall the people running with Obama…
Larry Grathwohl is the military veteran who volunteered to infiltrate the Weather Underground as an FBI operative in 1969. He is probably best-known for his firsthand account of a Weatherman meeting at which the organizations leadership, including the future Professor Ayers, discussed the logistics of how, after the communist revolution they were trying to spearhead, they would murder the ten percent of the American population that would likely remain resistant to the communists re-education program.
Dr. Garrow is not known for being a wild crackpot or part of the political fringe, so when he recently made the following post on his Facebook page, it got the attention of a number people:
“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new ‘litmus test’ in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. ‘The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.’ Those who will not are being removed.”
Articles like this show that the premiss of my novel is NOT too far fetched. Scary stuff, indeed. And a thanks to Bill Woosley for this!
Thousands of people in several Argentine cities ransacked supermarkets for a second day in the latest challenge to President Chistina Kirchner, who is struggling to revive a weak economy… In the central city Rosario, two people were killed during the incidents and 137 people arrested.
Washington’s Republicans and Democrats alike have become the toll collectors on the road to serfdom–
“The violence puts Mrs. Kirchner in a difficult position as the poor are [her] core constituents… Her government spends billions of dollars a year to help low income families, including free health care… [Yet] Argentine activists who claim to represent the poor traditionally block access to supermarkets in the month of December to demand free food and other items… The latest events were some of the worst acts of looting and vandalism in years…. Local media showed dozens of men, women, and children hauling away televisions, refrigerators, and food.”
Some have said my warnings about a coming civil war between makers and takers are exaggerated. It’s true that Argentina’s politicians have been waging class warfare since Juan and Eva Peron–and they aren’t fazed when it turns bloody. Obama and the Democrats are relative newcomers to the game. But Argentina reveals who really suffers when those who create a nation’s wealth get mugged by those who spend it–as just happened this week in Washington.
The American economy is suffering from the combined effects of an abusive regulatory scheme, unions that use work rules as weapons, a legal system that too easily rewards suits for hangnails, and a Democrat party doing everything it can to demonize capitalism and those who invest and drive the economy.
It should be no surprise, then, that the skilled and technical jobs to be filled by American labor are not materializing, and that the only jobs being created are perfect for the unskilled.
Until these forces working against capitalism are defeated, we can expect little improvement.
Two-thirds of those who have found employment under President Obama are immigrants, both legal and illegal, according to an analysis that suggests immigration has soaked up a large portion of what little job growth there has been over the past three years.
I talked about this company in my article “Talking Bain Capital with a Union Democrat.” So, here are some interesting facts about what happens when a president tries to centrally manage an economy. Obama, the socialist way… here it is:
Battery maker A123 Systems vowed thousands of new jobs when it received a nearly quarter-billion-dollar stimulus grant in late 2009, but federal job-tracking figures show only a few hundred positions were created before the company joined a growing list of federally backed energy businesses that ended in bankruptcy.
The latest quarterly report on file with a federal stimulus tracking database shows just seven positions created through the grant from April to June this year. Previous quarters’ job reports contained anywhere from a handful of positions created to more than 100 new jobs.
But even when the quarterly reports are combined, a total of 408 new positions were reported under the stimulus program since 2009, amounting to more than $300,000 spent for each new job reported.
In the law we call this res ipsa loquitur (the thing speaks for itself). Really, what more needs be said? Pure enemies want Barry re-elected.
Truly, the world is upside down.
The latest [dictator] to publicly announce his support for the commander-in-chief’s reelection bid was Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who this week assured he’d vote for Obama if he were from the United States. The America-bashing strongman made the announcement on state-owned television, saying “Obama is a good guy” and that if Obama was from Caracas, he’d surely return the favor by voting for Chavez.
The “mind” of the left has been spoken and written about extensively in the last four years. I’ve contribute a little to the corpus of thought with my novel, By Force Of Patriots, with my creation of Saul Alinsky’s Rules 13 and 14, and with my first and second articles on the Obamacare decision from Chief Justice John Roberts.
One thesis running through my writing is that minions on the left resort to any and all tactics, regardless of ethics, regardless of truth, regardless of the law, when they suspect they might not get their way. This comes from the general Marxist doctrine that the “ends” justify the “means” as so amply demonstrated by Saul Alinsky’s Rules 1-12.
So, here we see this Marxism front and center with death threats–just as Romney seems poised to unseat the traitorous Muslim in the office of the President.
However, the major networks have remained completely silent on the disturbing trend of Obama supporters threatening to resort to violence if their candidate fails to secure a second term.
