Liberal Media Plots To Save Obama And Kills The MSM In The Process

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

If you’ve followed politics for the past…well, forever, you know the media is not above denying a story air time to push an agenda. It’s been a little dirty “conspiracy” because no one could ever really prove such a blatant bias. No one was ever really able to pin down anything more than a “slight liberal slant” from an other wise “objective” journalist with anything more than an opinion. We needed hard proof. But now it’s all out there, thanks to the Daily Caller for uncovering emails from JournoList.

For those who depend on print and liberal media to get your “news” you may have never heard of JournoList. The Daily Caller has a good list of stories that cover the initial exposure to the final nail in the coffin. Here. Here. And Here. And in Dave Weigel’s own words, here.

The real meat doesn’t lie in the fact that this JournoList email list-serv exists, it’s what was happening behind the scenes as we all watched the 2008 presidential campaigns unfold. Liberal members of network, print, cable and internet media were conspiring to bury stories to protect then Presidential Candidate, Barack Obama. And I don’t use “conspiring” in a fear monger fashion, I use it because it is a fact. An undeniable truth. Supposed “objective journalists”, if there ever was such a thing, put a lot of work into burying the Rev. Wright story and to paint Republicans and the Right as racists.

According to The Daily Caller:

at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.

The list of organizations involved are stunning, to say the least. Time, Politico, The Huffington Post, et al played a very critical role in what people were learning about candidates and how opinions were being formed. The fact that their names were all over a conspiracy to “protect” a candidate not only shows blatant bias, but shows how much power they had and how much they knew they could get away with. They used this JournoList as a “war room” to organize and work out their plans to skew the American opinion of Rev. Wright and Obama’s connection to him.

Thomas Schaller, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun as well as a political science professor, upped the ante from there. In a post with the subject header, “why don’t we use the power of this list to do something about the debate?” Schaller proposed coordinating a “smart statement expressing disgust” at the questions Gibson and Stephanopoulos had posed to Obama. [Re: A debate in which the aforementioned moderators questioned Obama about Rev. Wright by asking, “Do you think Rev. Wright loves America as much as you do?”]

“It would create quite a stir, I bet, and be a warning against future behavior of the sort,” Schaller wrote.

Tomasky approved. “YES. A thousand times yes,” he exclaimed.

The members began collaborating on their open letter. Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones rejected an early draft, saying, “I’d say too short. In my opinion, it doesn’t go far enough in highlighting the inanity of some of [Gibson’s] and [Stephanopoulos’s] questions. And it doesn’t point out their factual inaccuracies …Our friends at Media Matters probably have tons of experience with this sort of thing, if we want their input.”

The Daily Caller story proved what so many of us knew back then, these “journalists” were using illusions to convince people that what they were seeing was not real and the things being said about Rev. Wright and Obama were simply the Right being typical racist fear-mongers. Even while many of them knew that defending Rev. Wright was disgusting, they had to protect Obama. It’s no wonder stories like Breitbart’s ACORN investigation, never really got the coverage it deserved.

Andrew Breitbart said it best today when he said, “The only way that the media will recover from the horrifying discoveries found in the Journolist is to investigate and investigate until every guilty reporter, professor and institution is laid bare begging America for forgiveness. Will they do it?”

My answer: No. They won’t. They don’t have the guts.

Kill Cracker Babies

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

At a festival celebrating African heritage racist, King Samir Shabazz sputs hatred toward, as he puts it, crackers, a slang term for white people.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBhzJnJIilI]

There is virturally no tv coverage of this with the exception of Fox News despite the fact that the self proclaimed ‘king’ of the New Black Panther Party is telling his mostly African American audience to kill white people and their babies for freedom.

“Kill all the White People, Kill Cracker Babies and I Hate White People, every iota of a cracker.” – quotes from King Samir Shabazz

Is this not news made by a political person from a political party?

Is it because the DOJ in bed with the Black Panther party that the major TV network news programs don’t even mention King Simir Shabazz.

King Samir Shabazz is the gentlemen who was carrying the billie club and threatening white people at a public polling place (video below). The King provided Obama with support via violence and intimidation against white people so they wouldn’t vote for the white candidate.

Yet despite the video evidence, the DOJ has dropped the federal lawsuit against the New Black Panthers for ‘purely racial reason’ according to former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams.

So now we have a possible corrupt DOJ, a Racist spewing hate speech and yet we have almost no real coverage of these anti-white person events.

Now throw in Malik Shebazz, the Black Panther Chairman who can be summed up as saying that killing white babies is ok, as long as it is in context. Chairman Malik refuses to say what ‘context’ is acceptable for killing white babies.

Hate speech is only covered in one direction. If you want to hear all the tv news you have to include Fox News in your daily lineup of tv news sources. Otherwise you are missing a large segment of what is going on in this country.

How absurd that only one network news channel covers the anti-white news.

Frank Dodd Act is Dodd Frank Act

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

A 2000 page bill that calls for more than 350 regulatory rule-makings, 47 studies, 74 reports will cause major uncertainty, making it harder for business to raise capital, make investments and ultimately create new jobs going to be called either the Frank Dodd Act or the Dodd Frank Act. Source: Tom Donohue, President and CEO, US Chamber of Commerce

What we call this bill is very important, since the bill does nothing to help regulate financial markets. Giving it the proper name is, frankly, more important than making it law. If we could just skip the ‘making it a law’ part, well that would be great.

Frank and Dodd, the financial geniuses behind Freddie and Fannie Mac, didn’t bother to do a cost-benefit study on the effect on end users. If Dodd-Frank passes the Senate, U.S. companies could be forced to put up an additional $1 trillion in collateral to continue using derivatives to reduce their business risk.

It’s not like there was never a discussion on collateral requirements, there was and it was soundly rejected. Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd pulled an all-nighter to finish the bill before an arbitrary political deadline set by the White House. At 5:08 a.m. on Friday, June 25, the bill passed with the added $1 trillion cost to American businesses who have any dealings with derivatives.

The bill, frankly, is a bill of A Trillion Unintended Consequences. The treasurer of FMC Corp, a chemical manufacturer, said his firm will have to put up $1.5 billion in collateral, which means they can’t spend that cash on building plants and hiring workers.

“The Dodd-Frank Act is an Empty Effort at Financial Reform”
Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) issued the following statement after the House passed the “Dodd-Frank Act” (H.R. 4173), which fails to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and will place more unrestrained power in the hands of irresponsible regulators.

“Today House Democrats chose to ignore the root causes of our financial meltdown and plowed irresponsibly ahead with an empty, politically motivated effort at “reform” that will continue to thwart our economic recovery. I, along with many of my fellow Republicans, am a staunch advocate for meaningful reform. However, this bill offers no such thing. A majority of its 2,300 pages are hollow and superfluous powers, and the rest takes punitive measures against those who had nothing to do with the financial crisis.

“While the risky behavior of those in the subprime mortgage industry infected the lion’s share of our financial sector, the regulators were asleep at the switch. Unfortunately, it is these very same regulators–many of them now top economic officials in the Obama administration–who are the real ‘winners’ in this bill.

“The American people would be well served by subjecting large financial institutions to structured bankruptcy proceedings. Instead, the Dodd-Frank Act institutionalizes ‘too big to fail.’ The American people would be well served by reforming Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Instead, we ignore them entirely and give them unlimited access to taxpayer money – a cost that could reach $380 billion. The American people would be well served by instituting an exacting standard for regulators. Instead, we just create more of them. Perhaps most importantly, the American people would be well served by implementing policies that empower businesses large and small to create jobs and spur economic growth. Instead, we penalize community institutions with burdensome changes to capital requirements, penalize large institutions with nearly $6 billion of increased FDIC premiums, and penalize non-financial institutions with limits on their ability to manage risk.

“This bill does not best serve our constituents. While they are demanding Congress to reign in spending, this bill hikes taxes and makes bailouts permanent. As a proponent of limited government, we must force the private sector to pay for their own mess through traditional bankruptcy rather than strap it on the backs of American taxpayers. Despite the vigorous opposition of the bill, Democrats continue to pass partisan legislation and ignore the voice of the American people.”

Where is the media on all of this today? Well if you are the Wall Street Journal, other financial news service, or a blogger, there are plenty of articles.

But if you are with the main stream media, you get no balanced news just one short story on Obama getting his way:
