  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Fairness Doctrine is Next; Update: Rush responds

Posted by rightwinger on January 24, 2009

Friday in a meeting with Republican Congressional members, Obama said that they can no longer listen to Rush Limbaugh.  Talk about trying to destroy the opposition.  What this really means is forget your principles.  You must join with the Dems so Obama can get all of his radical socialist agenda passed through.  We won’t forget our principles.  Be strong Republicans, don’t give in!!! Don’t forget who you are, and what you believe in.  In my opinion this is just a forbearing to what is to come.  Next it will be “we the people” who cannot listen to Rush Limbaugh.  The fairness doctrine will be institituted, free speech will be limited.  If not the fairness doctrine, than localism.  It wil essentially be the same thing, but is more politically correct.  Bottom line our free speech will be limited.  The media is totally in the tank for Obama – CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and PBS.  We only have Fox which was compromised 8 weeks before the election.  The Obama team made a deal for Fox to go easy on Obama until the election. Do we live in a democracry or puppet propaganda state?  All we truly have is Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and the other Conservative talk show hosts.  Obama and his cabinet is smoke and mirrors.  Its all marketing garbage.  His speeches are so general that you will hear what you want to hear, not the truth.  I talked to a friend and she was going on and on about how we all have to take responsibility for ourselves including the poor on welfare and how Obama isn’t going to just give the welfare recipients money.  I’m like Obama’s whole economic plan is trickle up stimulus and she knew nothing of what I was talking about.  Of course the poor will get money.  It won’t be to the extent they think, but they will get money.  I don’t know one Obama supporter that knows about Senate bill 2433.  Why?  Because Obama is all smoke and mirrors.  He gives a glimpse into what he means.  His speeches are so generic that different people will get different meanings. They are planned that way.  It is smoke and mirrors.  For example in his  Inaugural speech he said:

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world’s resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

Essentially this is Senate bill 2433 enacted.  The way it is written, it doesn’t matter what President gets elected next.  The US will have to meet the Millineum  Development Goals.  At this time we can’t afford to give away any more money.  With Senate bill 2433, the US Sovereignty will be gone.  We will be subject to the UN and their laws.

Rush Limbaugh responds:

… There are two things going on here. One prong of the Great Unifier’s plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan. He is hoping that these Republicans will also publicly denounce me and thus marginalize me. And who knows? Are ideological and philosophical ties enough to keep the GOP loyal to their voters? Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.

Secondly, here is a combo quote from the meeting:

“If we don’t get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election. But we can’t let people like Rush Limbaugh stall this. That’s how things don’t get done in this town.
” …

Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing “eternal” power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.

If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of the trillion dollar debacle.

Obama’s ties to the teachings of Saul Alinksy while he was community organizing in Chicago.
Here is Rule 13 of Alinksy’s Rules for Radicals:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

Bias of the Media described by ABC Journalist: Obama described as “cipher”

Posted by rightwinger on November 2, 2008

We are about to elect the first Marxist to be the President of the United States.  It sounds ridiculous right?  In reality Obama’s Mother and white Grandparents were known Marxists and this fact is well documented. From them moving 1,000 miles to make certain their daughter attended a school run by Marxists to the fact that Obama was mentored by Marshall from age 10. How come no one knows this except for well read Republicans?  Because the media is so biased they have not vetted Barack Obama at all.  The American people won’t know the truth about what change they voted for until after the election.  So far the media has made Obama’s candidacy to be all sweetness and light.  The reality is going to be quite frightening to all Americans that believe in Capitalism and the heritage of this great nation.  Below is an excerpt from an awesome article on the media’s bias during the 2008 Presidential election:

The traditional media are playing a very, very dangerous game — with their readers, with the Constitution and with their own fates. The sheer bias in the print and television coverage of this election campaign is not just bewildering, but appalling….

Meanwhile, I watched with disbelief as the nation’s leading newspapers, many of whom I’d written for in the past, slowly let opinion pieces creep into the news section, and from there onto the front page. Personal opinions and comments that, had they appeared in my stories in 1979, would have gotten my butt kicked by the nearest copy editor, were now standard operating procedure at the New York Times, the Washington Post, and soon after in almost every small town paper in the U.S.

But what really shattered my faith — and I know the day and place where it happened — was the war in Lebanon three summers ago. The hotel I was staying at in Windhoek, Namibia, only carried CNN, a network I’d already learned to approach with skepticism. But this was CNN International, which is even worse.

I sat there, first with my jaw hanging down, then actually shouting at the TV, as one field reporter after another reported the carnage of the Israeli attacks on Beirut, with almost no corresponding coverage of the Hezbollah missiles raining down on northern Israel. The reporting was so utterly and shamelessly biased that I sat there for hours watching, assuming that eventually CNNi would get around to telling the rest of the story … but it never happened.

But nothing, nothing I’ve seen has matched the media bias on display in the current presidential campaign.

Republicans are justifiably foaming at the mouth over the sheer one-sidedness of the press coverage of the two candidates and their running mates. But in the last few days, even Democrats, who have been gloating over the pass — no, make that shameless support — they’ve gotten from the press, are starting to get uncomfortable as they realize that no one wins in the long run when we don’t have a free and fair press….

No, what I object to (and I think most other Americans do as well) is the lack of equivalent hardball coverage of the other side — or worse, actively serving as attack dogs for the presidential ticket of Sens. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and Joe Biden, D-Del.

If the current polls are correct, we are about to elect as president of the United States a man who is essentially a cipher, who has left almost no paper trail, seems to have few friends (that at least will talk) and has entire years missing out of his biography.

That isn’t Sen. Obama’s fault: His job is to put his best face forward. No, it is the traditional media’s fault, for it alone (unlike the alternative media) has had the resources to cover this story properly, and has systematically refused to do so.

Why, for example to quote the lawyer for Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., haven’t we seen an interview with Sen. Obama’s grad school drug dealer — when we know all about Mrs. McCain’s addiction? Are Bill Ayers and Tony Rezko that hard to interview? All those phony voter registrations that hard to scrutinize? And why are Sen. Biden’s endless gaffes almost always covered up, or rationalized, by the traditional media?

Furthermore, I also happen to believe that most reporters, whatever their political bias, are human torpedoes … and, had they been unleashed, would have raced in and roughed up the Obama campaign as much as they did McCain’s. That’s what reporters do. I was proud to have been one, and I’m still drawn to a good story, any good story, like a shark to blood in the water.

So why weren’t those legions of hungry reporters set loose on the Obama campaign? Who are the real villains in this story of mainstream media betrayal?

The editors. The men and women you don’t see; the people who not only decide what goes in the paper, but what doesn’t; the managers who give the reporters their assignments and lay out the editorial pages. They are the real culprits.
