Media Elitists On Trial And On Ballot!

censor

A SuperPac called Conservative War Chest is running TV ads that expose the liberal media’s role in deciding elections. One ad running in North Carolina is a blistering two minute referendum on the “corruption of American journalism” by the ‘Media Elitists Destroying Independent-thinking America’, or just MEDIA for short.

Conservative War Chest spokesman Mike Flynn said, “Conservatives can never gain final victory until they confront the root problem of news organizations who are the real opposition party in America,” who added, “This content-heavy spot puts before the public case studies that establish these organizations as partisan, not journalistic organizations that are dedicated to activism, not fearless pursuit of the truth.”

Mike reminds Americans that at one point in our history, the news media valiantly stood up to corrupting forces in America. But today, the MEDIA is the corrupting force in America. Instead of exposing evil, they join in lockstep groveling at the feet of big government bureaucrats to gain regulatory approval and favorable treatment for their businesses.

The new ads show specific, concrete examples of news executives and partisan reporters trying to hide the truth from the American people. Flynn contends that since the MEDIA play such a large role trying to influence our elections,  they should be on the ballot.

The ad singles out the New York Times’ cover-up of the IRS scandal. It also reminds Americans of Sharyl Attkisson’s coverage of the Benghazi scandal for CBS, as well as the ABC smears of the Tea Party including George Stephanopoulus and Candy Crowley acting as Democrat surrogates in Presidential debates. And finally, it exposes Comcast, NBC, and MSNBC as a partisan left-wing attack machine with MSNBC news executive Phil Griffin being the ring leader in a suit.

The question is: Will Americans vote in lock-step with liberal choices served up by the MEDIA? or will they break from the pack and think for themselves and vote for conservative candidates who will help restore a once-great America? Tuesday will tell.

Here’s the ad:

Canada Parliament Shooter A Muslim! (No Shock Here)

muslim

The major lapdog lamestream news media once again is ‘shocked’ to discover that the Canadian Parliament shooter might actually be… Muslim!

Quite predictable. Instead of being outraged over the root commandments of Mohammed and the core teachings of Islam and reporting the truth, the media instead focus on potential hate crimes against poor Muslim victims.

Now let’s count the so-called hate crimes against Islam. Maybe one, possibly two, and there surely may be a third one just around the corner–in this Millennium or perhaps the next, so let’s call it…three.

But if we ever try to count the hate crimes by Muslims against non-Muslims, we would quickly loose count since there are many millions of innocent people mercilessly murdered by Muslims who simply were following the core teachings of the Koran and Hadith, commanding them to rape, kill, or convert all non-Muslims. And if you haven’t received the Muslim memo, an infidel is simply defined as a non-Muslim. The so-called ‘holy’ books dictate that this ‘sanctified’ killings are to continue until there is Peace on Earth, as defined as everyone who left alive after worldwide ‘holy’ Jihad is either a Muslim or a highly taxed slave of a Muslim. And if you don’t believe me, just ask a Muslim or look it up online in Islamic scriptures. A simple search phrase of “kill infidels” will show you more truth in one minute than you have seen on any of the three major news networks in your lifetime.

Yes, there have been mass murders by Muslims against innocent women, children, and men since Mohammed created the most terrorist-based religion in world history. That’s nothing new. Over the centuries, people knew this was evil. Our founding fathers had to deal with the Muslim Barbary Coast Pirates, prompting those wise leaders to create the U.S. Navy.

But what is new is the insanity or outright treachery of how of the lamestream lapdog news fakers keep repeating the mantra Obama has given them to report when such Islamic atrocities occur, that neither lone Muslims engaging in terrorism nor any members of the Islamic State are Muslim.

No wonder the ratings of most major television networks are imploding as they descend toward the ash bin of history. We hope and pray to Yahowah God (not to Allah) that when they do announce their impending bankruptcy that our elected leaders don’t bail them out with taxpayer money saying they are too big to fail.

Is The Liberal Media Over-Covering Ferguson?

Why have the protests and riots lasted so long in Ferguson?

Why have out-of-town agitators and opportunists like the Communist Revolutionary Party and the New Black Panthers flocked to a St. Louis suburb?

Why, 12 days after Michael Brown was shot to death by a policeman, do the good people of Ferguson who want to see a fair and just investigation into the facts surrounding Brown’s death still have no peace?

It’s the national news media, stupid.

It’s the ratings-hungry, pot-stirring, sensationalizing TV media that never misses a chance to milk — and perpetuate — a white-on-black news story.

Ferguson is not just big news on network TV and in the Washington Post. It’s become a nightly action-packed reality show on CNN, MSNBC, and FOX.

The images of tear-gassed protestors squared off against militarized police make for great TV. So does the tension and drama.

Will protests turn more violent tonight? Will a provocateur throw a bomb, burn down a variety store, or shoot a cop with a deer rifle?

We all hope not. But if anything exciting happens, don’t you worry, America.

Jake Tapper, Chris Hayes, and Steve Harrigan will be there on the sidewalks of Ferguson to capture it live for CNN, MSNBC, and Fox.

Then Anderson, Rachel, and Greta will analyze and discuss everything until the country falls asleep.

Obviously, no one can or should stop the news media from stampeding in a herd to Ferguson. We need and want the national print and electronic media to thoroughly cover tragic events like this.

But we need the news media to do its job right — and with restraint.

We need journalists to dig up accurate new information, challenge the authorities, debunk rumors and lies, and provide perspective, thoughtful analysis, and commentary.

At this point in Ferguson, the TV media’s saturation coverage — and saturation commentary — is only making things worse.

Its round-the-clock presence is not only attracting publicity seekers and troublemakers who give Ferguson’s good people a bad name.

What’s worse, the media attention is encouraging residents of Ferguson to continue the unnecessary daily protests that are destroying daily life in their town.

The people of Ferguson deserve to learn the truth. The investigation should be done properly, and state and federal agencies have come in to make sure that happens.

But the process of determining whether police officer Darren Wilson was justified or not in shooting Michael Brown is going to take months, if not years.

The autopsies are not complete. The grand jury hasn’t finished its work. We don’t have the police incident report yet. We’ve heard conflicting eyewitness reports.

Instead of standing around on sidewalks in the dark waiting for something exciting to happen, the TV news guys should do everyone a favor and back off for a while.

That will never happen. But if it did, overnight Ferguson’s streets would be filled with cars again, not protest marchers, riot police and Al Jazeera camera crews.

Everyone involved — especially the TV news media — needs to calm down and wait for all the facts before they start spouting their pre-conceived conclusions.

This Is How Hamas Controls The Mainstream Media (And The Media Doesn’t Care)

Barack Obama

The Gaza War is now nearing its fourth week, and the mainstream media coverage has been relentless since the fighting erupted.

But in the wake of so much reporting, something sinister has been exposed: The American press has an anti-Israel bias.

Jesse Rosenfeld, of The Daily Beast, provides a standard example of such reporting: “These were crowded neighborhoods less than three weeks ago. Now, they have been literally depopulated, the residents joining more than 160,000 internally displaced people in refuges and makeshift shelters. Apartment blocks are fields of rubble, and as I move through this hostile landscape, the phrase that keeps ringing in my head is ‘scorched Earth.’”

Yet other reporters have gone much further than that. Amazingly, some simple-minded journalists have even accused Israel of war crimes. The fact that such twisted reporting exists in the mainstream press is truly appalling, yet these stories continue to populate the airwaves.

This week, the press has been crying about Israel knocking out the lights in Gaza. I say it’s about time! Israel has been showing too much restraint. It should’ve hit the Gaza power plant on day one of this Hamas-bred war.

The only reason Israel waited to hit this strategic power plant is U.S. lobbying. Obama was hard at work pretending to be Israel’s ally, even as our government stabbed the country in the back instead.

Truthfully, the White House has been in a twist since Secretary of State John Kerry’s effort to force a ceasefire on Israel was universally rebuked. Since then, the administration has offered talking points such as, “This is not the way that partners and allies treat each other.”

But here’s the thing: Israel didn’t start this war. The war was instigated by a rain of rockets on the heads of Israeli civilians and children.

A Despicable Strategy

And now that Israel is winning on the ground, Hamas wants to turn the tide by engaging in media theatrics.

Hamas has been playing up recent child casualties because it knows that European and American audiences only get distorted news coverage. The truth is that Gaza’s leaders know America’s left-wing media is as compliant to Hamas as it is to Obama.

Particular criticism has been leveled at Israel for bombing schools. But in reality, Hamas’ craven policy is to blame. It uses schools, hospitals, and mosques as arms depots and staging grounds.

For instance, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) announced last Tuesday that another rocket stash has been discovered in one of its schools in Gaza. That’s the third time that a Hamas weapons arsenal has been found at an UNRWA school.

These terrorists want to maximize civilian casualties, even as Israel has repeatedly tried to limit civilian deaths. Heck, before the engagement ever began, Israel warned Gaza’s civilians to leave. Leaflets in Arabic warned Gaza’s citizens of the coming offensive.

Frankly, after suffering infantry attacks from underground tunnels and rocket attacks from above, Israel has a strategic right to ask that Gaza become a demilitarized zone.

Luckily for the Israelis, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems determined to disarm Hamas. He said that it’s untenable for Israel to suffer “death from above and death from below.” If the country stays the course, it can end the rocket barrage, stop the threat of Hamas tunnels, and finally end the rule of Hamas in Gaza for good.

Here at home, John Kerry and Barack Obama should just butt out and let the Israeli Defense Forces finish the task.

And as for the American press… if you’re still relying on them for your news, then you’re keeping yourself ill-informed.

Washington Post Condemns Citizens’ Concern About Housing Illegal Immigrants

Photo credit: Dan Holm / Shutterstock.com

Many in the liberal media believe that those who don’t embrace the massive influx of illegal immigrants to the United States with open arms, accepting their illegal crossings as a search for “refuge,” are hate mongers and racists, or worse. Now, those who don’t accept the “it’s for the children” argument when faced with the influx of more than 60,000 unaccompanied alien children (UACs) are condemned as child-haters as well.

All of these elements were present in a hit job on the residents of Lawrenceville, Virginia recently perpetuated by The Washington Post. Reporter Tina Griego jumped feet first into the immigration debate on July 25, writing that this Virginia town had “unequivocally rejected temporary housing for 500 Central American children seeking refuge.” Firstly, Griego’s tone suggests that she has accepted the mainstream media argument that the current influx of illegal immigrants is because of violence in their home countries, not the perception that the United States has loosened its own immigration policies. As AIM’s Roger Aronoff reported earlier this month, the El Paso Intelligence Center, which utilizes federal data, states in a report that “Of the 230 total migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos…”

And, as Breitbart News has questioned, why has the Obama administration repeatedly been mentioning the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) memorandum if it does not itself believe that this memorandum played some role in the current border crisis?

While Griego is not willing to attribute anything but innocent motivations to the child crossings (she does not mention the many adult border crossings), she has nothing but terrible things to say about those who oppose “the children.” She calls it a “full-throated, bared-teeth rage with which not everyone is comfortable or proud,” quotes a source likening it to opposition to the Civil Rights movement and the forced integration of schools, and refers to it as “that night’s fury” and “heat.” The implication is that the backlash is irrational. “In the days since, similar anger has raged throughout the country,” she writes.

The “fury” in Lawrenceville was the town speaking out against the federal government’s decision to use the local historically black college as a temporary shelter for UACs.

But, according to Griego, we can’t use the term UAC either. It’s too dehumanizing. “In this heat, the children cease to become children. They are, instead, called by the government acronym for unaccompanied alien children: UACs,” writes Griego. “They are called juveniles, illegals, possible carriers of infectious diseases and random mayhem, young men of unverifiable age and unknown intent who might be better suited for the empty state prison down the road.”

Are these concerns really so unjustified? AIM has already cited reports of the infectious diseases carried by some illegal aliens. “Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran told Fox News that the violent MS-13 gang is exploiting the chaos on the U.S. border to recruit new juvenile members,” reported The Washington Free Beacon earlier this month.

“They are denied innocence in order to be remade as symbols,” asserts Griego.

Griego, and the Post, are trying to turn this town into a symbol of hatred and bigotry because they don’t like its reaction to illegal immigration. But there are two sides to this debate, and a good reporter shouldn’t forget that. Demonizing one side to score political points, taken to this level by Griego, is nothing more than thinly disguised advocacy journalism.
