Now can anyone explain this one to me? Makes me think that a fix is already in the works and that someone slipped up and let the proverbial "Cat out of the bag!"

4063494041?profile=originalAs a black conservative Tea Party patriot, I have been struggling with what I should do, if anything, in response to the rash of incidents of racial violence resulting from the Martin/Zimmerman case. Folks, a great evil is running the show in our country right now.


Prolific race-hustler Al Sharpton is heralded as a hero. http://bit.ly/IIUZR5 Attorney General Eric Holder ignores the New Black Panther “dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman. http://bit.ly/HM1Aiq Three major TV networks are caught manipulating facts of the Martin/Zimmerman case to fuel racial hatred and anger. http://bit.ly/HchWtZ Minister Farrakhan tweeted referring to the Martin/Zimmerman case, “Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon and very soon, the law of retaliation may very well be applied.”http://yhoo.it/GPnyxc


Even a nut case white supremacist group have thrown their hat, or skinned heads, into the ring, threatening violence. http://bit.ly/IsEp8G


Rather than showing pictures of 6'3” seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, nearly every TV news broadcast features pictures of Trayvon as an adorable little boy in his little league football uniform. This is done by design to further the media's storyline: innocent-little-black-boy-murdered-by-evil-racist-white-man. Zimmerman is not white. He is Hispanic. To further the mainstream media storyline, the New York Times has deemed Zimmerman, a “white” Hispanic. http://wapo.st/HilSiA


I do not know what transpired between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. I do know that the Race Industry has gone to extraordinary, dishonest lengths to promote its innocent-little-black-boy-murdered-by-evil-racist-white-man storyline.


Even president Obama despicably and masterfully fueled the flames of racial hatred by saying, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”. http://bit.ly/HTrpcO As a seasoned professional politician, president Obama surely knew his comment would up the ante of black rage.


So yes, as Christian and as patriot, I wondered, what should I do to help calm the storm of Martin/Zimmerman related racial violence? Should I rally black conservatives to denounce the violence and call for unity at a press conference? No, the liberal biased mainstream media would not cover such a press conference. Non-victim-minded blacks do not fit the media-desired image of America. Blacks who love their country without resentment toward fellow Americans who are white are as repulsive to the mainstream media as showing Dracula the cross.


Well, what about a racial peace rally – blacks and whites standing together, singing songs and talking about unity. No, Obama's SEIU thugs and/or the New Black Panthers could exploit the event by showing up to assault patriots.


Remember Kenneth Gladney, the black conservative who was beaten and sent to the emergency room by SEIU thugs at a town hall meeting during the health care debates? http://bit.ly/OCx7g Many believe Gladney's beating was in response to Obama White House's clarion call to “push back twice as hard” and get in the faces of those opposing Obamacare.


The mainstream media will never tell the truth about black-on-white crime. When reporting incidents of black-on-white violence, the media walks a tightrope, bending over backwards to avoid mentioning race. And yet I heard a report on the radio in which the reporter, without hesitation, up front and in your face said five “black” men were shot by a “white” male in a white pickup truck. This type of story fits the racist image that the media desires to portray of white America. According to the media, blacks are ALWAYS the victims and never the aggressors. http://bit.ly/IBgnXa


So how do we right-thinking, decent Americans counter all the racial hate, evil and violence, fueled by media and the Obama administration, that's contaminating our great country?


Mary is away, up north visiting family. Thus, I found myself in the grocery store checkout line with my shopping cart one-third full. An elderly white gentleman in line behind me had two items. “Excuse me sir – you can go in front of me.” He gleefully replied, “Thank you very much.” After the cashier had bagged his items and given the elderly white gentleman his change, he thanked me again.


I thought, that's it! For now, until God leads me otherwise, I can simply continue doing what I, along with millions of my fellow Americans, do every day: seize every opportunity to spread racial harmony and kindness. I know that sounds corny, but I know it is the right thing to do.


Despite what the Race Industry would have you believe, a majority of Americans are not at each other throats, divided along racial lines. However, this is unquestionably the agenda of the Race Industry. Incidents of race related violence are on the rise since the Martin/Zimmerman incident. http://bit.ly/HJ1djA


Most Americans are over “the race thing.” Americans live, work and play together just fine. Interracial marriage is far from being the big deal it was in the past. Unfortunately, it is the mission of the mainstream media, the Obama administration and race profiteers to keep the Race Industry alive and profitable. These people (race instigators and exploiters) are evil.


Therefore, it is up to us – proud responsible Americans – to continue sowing seeds of racial harmony, brotherhood and peace.

Ace CBS Reporter Attkisson Nails OF&F and

Obama/ATF Corruption Assailing 2nd Amendment

 

     Just when all appeared lost and it seemed like the mainstream media (MSM) was eternally in the tank committed to supporting an ultra-corrupt Obama administration come hell or highest seas, CBS News shocked us with some actual journalistic backbone!  CBS News, which apparently has a White House informer blowing the whistle on the goings on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, has acquired documents showing that the original intent of Fast and Furious was to crack down on gun ownership and erode honest ordinary patriotic Americans’ Second Amendment rights.  For the third time now the breakthrough in the “Gun Walking Scandal” has come courtesy of one CBS reporter, Sharyl Attkisson . . . .

     While the rest of the MSM has gone out of its way to enshrine every Obama White House lie, red herring and false accusation as Gospel TRUTH, Ms. Attkisson has repeatedly attacked the beast in its lair.   The latest E-mail and other earlier documents obtained by CBS News shows that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using Operation Fast and Furious (whose weapons have already killed at least one U.S. Border Patrol agent and at least 200 Mexican citizens) as a lever to gain tighter gun regulations in the United States.  

     The chronology begins in April of 2009, three months into the new Obama administration.   Claiming that guns sold north of the border in America accounted for 90% of the weapons and 90% of the deaths from drug cartel violence**, Obama made a speech in Mexico alongside Mexican President Felipe Calderon.  The President said, “This war is being waged with guns purchased not here, but in the United States. More than 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well.”   It was about that time that the administration brushed off an old Bush administration program, Operation Gun Runner, which conducted ongoing gun stings to crackdown on illegal arms sales and re-named it “Operation Fast and Furious,”  (OF&F).  And how exactly did OF&F differ from Gun Runner?   Four great differences emerge . . . .

            1)     CBS’s Sharyl Attkinsson put it like this on the Early Show on CBS, “New e-mails that we now have . . . add to some documentation that we already had that show government officials NEVER planned to reveal publicly their role in letting those guns fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels but planned to use the end result to argue for new gun regulations that they wanted, and you can read more about that story on our website, CBSNews.com.”   In other words, where Gun Runner was a real sting that netted illegal arms traffickers virtually immediately . . . OF&F deliberately adopted a “hands-off approach” that allowed its guns to cross the border UNIMPEDED with the goal of using later discoveries of these weapons as compelling reasons to crack down on the rights of legal gun ownership in America.

            2)      Whereas, Gun Runner had targeted all illegal gun sales, OF&F aimed directly at getting its guns into the hands of the Mexican Drug Cartels, the so-called “Big Fish” and did so very quickly instead of carefully building up actionable arrest justification, OF&F was aimed at getting the weapons into illegal hands as quickly as possible period.  The ATF agents on the ground who were shocked by all this, christened the practice “Gun Walking”

            3)    With its emphasis on getting weapons to the cartels, OF&F put much heavier weaponry in these criminals hands.  The never-shrinking violet, Rush Limbaugh, commented upon Attkisson’s revelations this way, “. . . We arranged for thousands of guns, long guns, automatic, semiautomatic, AK-47s, machine guns, bazookas, whatever, to end up in the hands of drug lords, right out of gun stores, gun shops in Phoenix, just walked outta there right across the border into Mexico, into the hands of the drug cartel and the cartel was supposed to do with those guns what drug cartel people do, start using them, bam, bam, you’re dead. They did. Hundreds of people died as a result of these guns being walked out of Phoenix gun shops and others along the border. And in this period of time our border agent got killed.”  Two OF&F weapons were found at the agent’s death site; and later one of the heavier weapons Limbaugh refers to even brought down a helicopter carrying high-ranking Mexican drug officials killing everyone on board.

            4)    Unlike Gun Runner, the folks on the ground quickly became alarmed by what was going on.   Criminals got weapons but then were NOT arrested, what the hell!  Immediately this set off a chain of complaints and whistle-blowing that reverberated all the way to the Administration’s upper echelons, where the Attkinsson E-mails also came from.  Somehow the Obama upper-level muckety-mucks never ever could imagine that the people working for them would be decent, honest folk shocked by such abuse of power and its results, thousands of ultra violent criminals being abetted by the U.S.A.

     What’s the upshot of all this?  Someone in the Obama administration engineered a program where some of the worst criminals in the world get hold of American guns that we just give them, but they (Obama, Holder, etc.) don’t tell anybody any of that. It’s made to look like either the drug cartel could just cross the border walk in anywhere in America and buy all the heavy arms in the world and walk back across the border or  some really rotten Americans could walk into the gun stores, buy those guns, cross the southern border and sell them to the drug cartel. Then everybody would be surprised with the revelation that the guns were sold in America, lots of people would die, and the conclusion according to Limbaugh is, “See, we have got to have more control over guns. Look at what happened here.”  Ms. Attkisson and some heroic whistle-blowers changed all that. 

     Yes, yes, FOXNews has been covering this story like a poodle with a slipper in its mouth for over fifteen months now.  But everyone who understands real journalism expects that from FOX and then despite the facts that like so many other stories this one would be totally ignored by all the MSM.  Real journalism, heroic journalism by CBS . . . that’s something new and wonderful.    Attkisson didn’t just follow FOX’s lead, she dug deep and got her own leads and those leads have been devastating in their effect on the Obama circle-the-wagons efforts.

     Oh, by the way, President Obama’s speech, in that joint press conference with Felipe Calderon in April, 2009, referred to “Gun Runner” by name and said we could “expect some good results.”  This was when the first E-mails with the new name “Operation Fast and Furious” began to show up.  The fact that Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, the ATF and Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security have all been stonewalling the Congressional Investigation into Fast and Furious tells you everything you need to know about how widespread this Obama corruption goes.  The fact that AG Holder’s second in command, wrote a response to the investigators ten months ago that deliberately misled the investigators tells you where the probable heads will eventually roll from.    After responding to congressional subpoenas with tens of thousands of pages of 100% blacked-out documents expect Holder to be impeached for obstruction of justice.

 

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

Rajjpuut

 

**  Even counting the thousands of Fast and Furious weapons, current official U.S. government statistics put the actual number at 17% of the drug cartels' weapons originating in America.

G.S. Spent $27 Million Anti-Bush 2004

$1.8 Million with NPR Last Year

Wants Progressive World without Borders

 

            When you’re a megalomaniacal multi-billionaire, what’s $45 million more or less anyway?  Well one thing that George Soros’s $45 million definitely is . . . is confirmation that inflation is rampant in this country.  Last year’s bribes, er’ donations, to over thirty major American news organizations only cost “Spooky Dude” Soros $27 million . . . so the cost of attempting to control America’s opinions by controlling our media outlets has risen 67%.  Of course the purse strings are always open when it comes to defeating Conservative candidates; Soros donated almost $20 million for President Obama’s 2008 campaign.  Mr. Soros who funds more than 50 progressive (We must ‘progress’ beyond the ‘out-dated and ill-conceived U.S. Constitution’ if we’re ever to make ‘progress’ toward our earthly utopia) foundation aligned with his “Open Society Initiative,” is looking for a world without borders headed up by the United Nations.

            On occasions too numerous to count, Mr. Soros  has said “the biggest obstacle” -- to progressive desiderata like radical environmentalism; to his version of peace around the planet; a borderless enlightened society; etc., etc. -- “is the United States.”  Known as “the Man who Broke the Bank of England,” Soros won his multi-billions by deliberately undermining and then wrecking currencies in Thailand, Malaysia, England, Russia, the Balkans and Japan.  He has recently taken an ultra-aggressive stance (including making speeches to progressive American groups in New York) toward getting the Chinese Yuan to replace the American Dollar as the world’s reserve currency and will profit mightily if and when the Buck takes a serious hit such as that one.

            When it was revealed, in the middle of the recent National Public Radio (NPR) controversies over progressive-biased reporting, that Soros had contributed 1.8 million to NPR, the already strident calls for cutting off NPR’s $455 million in federal funding were multiplied greatly.  One of the most embarrassing revelations came from citizen-journalists playing the role of wealthy Arab sheiks interested in funding NPR, but only if Jews were not involved.  Not surprisingly, NPR-funder Soros was born into a family of semi-practicing Jews and at age 16 under the guise of being a Gentile in his native Hungary, young George assisted the Nazis by playing the role of messenger and Judas goat to the Budapest area Jewish population.  In several interviews since becoming rich, he’s denied any regrets and called those times “some of the most exciting days of my life.”  You’ve undoubtedly heard him comparing G.W. Bush to Hitler and FOXNews to the Nazis.  Here’s a partial interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes program where Steve Kroft asks Soros about working for the Nazis as a boy and wrecking currencies:

http://www.sorosmonitor.com/absolutenm/templates/news.aspx?articleid=33&zoneid=1

Soros not only has no guilt about deliberately working toward destroying the currencies of millions of people; he also has no regrets about helping the Nazis (“if I didn’t do it someone else would have”).  Soros, who spent $27 million trying to defeat President Bush in 2004, has ties to more than 30 mainstream news outlets – including The New York Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC and ABC.  Prominent journalists like ABC’s Christiane Amanpour and former Washington Post editor and now Vice President Len Downie serve on boards of operations that take Soros cash. This despite the Society of Professional Journalists' ethical code stating: “avoid all conflicts real or perceived.”

Soros’ Open Society Foundations is funded by www.soros.org. It is a network of more than 30 international foundations, mostly funded by Soros, who has contributed more than $8 billion to those efforts.  He funds and more or less runs another 24 or 25 (who’s counting?) progressive foundations just in America.  Even though almost all the newspapers associated with Soros are going broke because readers don’t like to have yellow journalists telling them what to think, the left-wing so-called mainstream press considers Mr. Soros’ millions and billions a well-deserved windfall year after year.  How far does Soros’ influence go?  According to an investigation by FOXNews which Rajjpuut will quote in detail:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/05/11/dont-hear-george-soros-ties-30-major-news-organizations/

“Among the supposedly “neutral press” Soros OWNS a 14-person Journalism Advisory Board, stacked with CNN’s David Gergen and representatives from top newspapers, a former publisher of The Wall Street Journal and the editor-in-chief of Simon & Schuster. Several are working journalists, including:

“Jill Abramson, a managing editor of The New York Times; Kerry Smith, the senior vice president for editorial quality of ABC News; Cynthia A. Tucker, the editor of the editorial page of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.”

Soros’ “Center for Public Integrity” is another great example. Its board of directors is filled with working journalists like Amanpour from ABC, right alongside blatant liberal media types like Arianna Huffington, of the Huffington Post and now AOL.  The CPI board is a veritable Who’s Who of journalism and top media organizations, including:

“Christiane Amanpour – Anchor of ABC’s Sunday morning political affairs program, “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” A reliable lefty, she has called tax cuts “giveaways,” the Tea Partyextreme,” and Obama “very Reaganesque. And . . . Paula Madison – Executive vice president and chief diversity officer for NBC Universal, who leads NBC Universal’s corporate diversity initiatives, spanning all broadcast television, cable, digital, and film properties.  AND Matt Thompson – Editorial product manager at National Public Radio and an adjunct faculty member at the prominent Poynter Institute.  The group's advisory board features: Ben Sherwood, ABC News president and former "Good Morning America" executive producer.”

So what? Journalists, we are constantly told, are neutral in their reporting. According to FOXNews’ investigation:  “In almost the same breath, many bemoan the influence of money in politics. It is a maxim of both the left and many in the media that conservatives are bought and paid for by business interests. Yet where are the journalists raising concerns about where their own money comes from?”

And also according to FOXNews, that “$48 Million number is an understatement. It is gleaned from tax forms, news stories and reporting. But Soros funds foundations that fund other foundations in turn, like the Tides Foundation, which then make their own donations. A complete accounting is almost impossible because one media component or another is part of so many Soros-funded operations.”


            According to the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute which has been looking into George Soros and his influence on the media.

“ Soros’ influence doesn’t just include connections to top mainstream news organizations such as NBC, ABC, The New York Times and Washington Post. It’s bought him connections to the underpinnings of the news business. The Columbia Journalism Review, which bills itself as ‘a watchdog and a friend of the press in all its forms,’  lists several investigative reporting projects funded by one of Soros foundations.”

Additionally, the “News Frontier Database” includes seven different investigative reporting projects funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute. Along with ProPublica, there are the Center for Public Integrity, the Center for Investigative Reporting and New Orleans’ The Lens. The Columbia School of Journalism, which operates CJR, has received at least $600,000 from Soros, as well.  None of this is new news, however.

The book “Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire,” he has been fascinated by media from when he was a boy where early career interests included “history or journalism or some form of writing.” As one of the world’s richest men (No. 46 on Forbes’ list), he gets to indulge his dreams. Since those dreams seem to involve controlling media from the ground up, Soros naturally started with Columbia University’s School of Journalism. Columbia is headed by President Lee Bollinger, who also sits on the Pulitzer Prize board and the board of directors of The Washington Post.  Not strangely, Bollinger, like many of Soros’ other funding recipients, is pushing for journalism to find a new sugar daddy or at least an uncle – Uncle Sam. Bollinger wrote in his book “Uninhibited, Robust, and Wide-Open: A Free Press for a New Centurythat government should fund media. A 2009 study by Columbia’s journalism program came to the same conclusion, calling for “a national fund for local news.” Conveniently, Len Downie, the lead author of that piece, is on both the Post’s board and the board of the Center for Investigative Reporting, also funded by Soros.

Soros funds more than just the most famous journalism school in the nation. There are journalism industry associations like:  The National Federation of Community Broadcasters; The National Association of Hispanic Journalists; Committee to Protect Journalists; Investigative News Network (INN), a collaboration of 32 non-profit news organizations producing what they claim is “non-partisan investigative news; the James L. Knight Foundation also backs the network and is possibly the most-well-known journalism foundation. Knight President and CEO Alberto Ibargüen is on the board of directors for ProPublica a Soros-funded entity.

            Also according to According to the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute, INN includes the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University, the liberal web start-up MinnPost, National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting, National Public Radio, and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. The network had included the liberal Huffington Post investigative operation among its grants, but HuffPo investigations merged with the possibly even more left-wing Center for Public Integrity, on whose board Arianna Huffington sits.  The Soros corruption seemingly never stops, liberal academic programs, left-wing investigative journalism and even supposedly neutral news organizations all paid for by a man who spends tens of millions of dollars openly attacking the conservatives, the Constitution, and fiscally-concerned citizens in this country.   Is it any wonder that only one news organization in the country is trusted more than distrusted?  (FOXNews +12% with 49% trust; 37% distrust; while the next closest, CNN, is distrusted by 3% more than trusted; NBC -9%; CBS -12%; and ABC is distrusted by 15% more than those who trust it) . . . Our Founding Fathers counted on an unbiased journalist corps to serve as watchdogs.  It looks like the watchdogs are working with the bad guys and the public knows it!

It’s safe to say that Barack Obama is in bed with the unions, the media and our giant corporations . . . . “In addition to CBS Corporation and the Washington Post Company, recipients of ERRP funding include the United Auto Workers union, which secured $206,798,086 in taxpayer money, AT&T, which took in $140,022,949, and General Electric (GE), which raked in $36,607,818. GE has made headlines recently for not paying any U.S. taxes last year. IBM got $12,989,690 in taxpayer money.
 
“Verizon pulled $91,702,538 in taxpayer cash, too, and General Motors received $19,002,669. More than $6 million went to different Teamsters groups nationwide, and millions more went to the United Mine Workers, United Food and Commercial Workers, the AFL-CIO and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).” Rajjpuut’s opinion/Daily Caller’s FACTS
 
 
 
 
General Electric Receives $36 Million Bribe
From Obamacare Slush Fund After Its NBC Affiliate
Cheer-Led Barack Obama’s 2008 Election
 
 
            Mr. Obama has just handed the world his own personal Watergate.  The facts are all there in public documents including congressional hearings and reports . . . and not surprisingly NBC, CBS, and the Washington Post (all of which received bribes from the Obamacare Slush funds) are not covering the story. But similarly the New York Times and ABC and CNN are largely ignoring the issue as well.
 
            The story got its legs when Minnesota Representative and TEA Party favorite Michelle Bachmann revealed in mid-March that Obamacare had been illegally funded to the tune of $105 Billion. Ms. Bachmann revealed a huge complex of virtual “slush-funds” mostly run through Kathleen Sibelius’ Health and Human Resource Dept. The Daily Caller website soon put skin and fancy clothing on the rest of this enormous skeleton in Barack Obama’s closet when it revealed that besides several Obama-supporting unions, that the Washington Post and  the CBS Television Network had between them both received the equivalent of a combined bribe of $1.3 million. CBS and the Post have been enthusiastic Obama supporters who seemingly refuse to run any negative stories at all on the Obama administration. 
 
        
 

The 800# gorilla now has been given headgear. The suspected news that General Electric, Corp. was the recipient of a similar bribe this time to the tune of $36 million is, coming straight on the heels of a recent story that GE paid NO TAXES on $14 Billion in profits was a potential bombshell that has NOW BEEN CONFIRMED. Still the media mentioned above have refused to cover the story. The feather in the cap of the 800# gorilla is the most shocking of all.  General Electric, you see, up to recently owned NBC and MSNBC the two most ardent of all those cheerleading for the 2008 Obama-Biden campaign. GE CEO Jeffrey Immeldt, you’ll recall was recently appointed to head up Mr. Obama’s job-creation czar; and last summer had been involved in controversy for seeking to quash anti-Obama reporting by GE’s affiliate news stations. It’s safe to say that Barack Obama is in bed with the unions, the media and our giant corporations . . . .

According to Daily Caller which broke the story, “In addition to CBS Corporation and the Washington Post Company, recipients of ERRP funding include the United Auto Workers union, which secured $206,798,086 in taxpayer money, AT&T, which took in $140,022,949, and General Electric (GE), which raked in $36,607,818. GE has made headlines recently for not paying any U.S. taxes last year. IBM got $12,989,690 in taxpayer money. With all that money in all these corrupt hands, it’s safe to say that Barack Obama could count on hundreds of millions in campaign donations from the unions and big business; and mountains of favorable press reports from CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the Washington Post, etc.

“Verizon pulled $91,702,538 in taxpayer cash, too, and General Motors received $19,002,669. More than $6 million went to different Teamsters groups nationwide, and millions more went to the United Mine Workers, United Food and Commercial Workers, the AFL-CIO and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).”

“The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money.”
 
“It is fine with me if they continue covering the ObamaCare debate,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, in an e-mail to The Daily Caller. “When NBC used to cover energy issues, they identified themselves as a subsidiary of General Electric. CBS and Washington Post will just have to disclose that they are subsidiaries of the Obama Administration.”

 
Obama Bribes CBS and Washington Post with
$1, 295,000 from Obamacare Slush Fund
 
 
            Sometimes it’s hard to figure things out. This “thing” discussed in this blog, however, although it’s a deep and moderately complicated issue, is now becoming quite clear. You do remember** when the much-ballyhooed New York Times and all its sycophants such as MSNBC, the Washington Post and CBS -- awhile back used the assassination attempt on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords as an opportunity immediately to assert that hate-mongering by right-wing media outlets like talk radio, FoxNews and the “new online media” (more on this later) had driven a crazed right-winger to the attempt and to the resulting six deaths and wounding of thirteen; and then they all quickly dropped that line when it was proved that the would-be assassin was a crazed left-winger who asserted in his private blogs that he’d contributed to Ms. Giffords campaigns and who criticized the left for not moving fast enough (for being too slow in starting “the revolution,” perhaps?). No apologies or retractions were ever aired or printed by the Times, Post, MSNBC, CBS, etc. ad nauseum. Presumably the story they printed is 100% correct and needed no retractions?
Naturally they still continued to decry the nation’s conservatives as racists and haters responsible for all the evil in the world (that is, they continue around-the-clock demagoguery such as is now evident in the ongoing debt; deficit; debt-ceiling and budget stories^^) and in our country and then they called for less sharp “political rhetoric” (by which they meant anything a conservative might say) meanwhile over the past three years having ignored at least 80% of the real stories, with real evidence that have been revealed, they continue to glorify Barack Obama; Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid; big government; big taxes; big spending; huge UNfunded entitlement programs amounting to over $100 TRillion; huge deficits; a monstrously huge national debt; the unabated printing of money by the Federal Reserve Bankers and the inflation it’s causing; not to mention the campaign promises of one Obama to “bankrupt the coal industry” and that his “energy policy of cap and trade would necessarily cause electrical and other energy prices to skyrocket.” Those sound like real news to any intelligent and patriotic American, but not to the mainstream, lamestream media. That’s the background for this interesting story . . . and those caught red-handed in corruption . . . .
As mentioned above, some things are difficult to figure out. Rajjpuut, who was his J-school’s academic excellence award winner in journalism and who had some thirty feature excellent feature stories printed in the local daily while interning, loves journalism, real journalism that is . . . the kind that serves as a watchdog over government corruption and helps keep the voters informed . . . but Rajjpuut is no fan of the crony journalism that passes for news-gathering everywhere you look.  This time, however, it seems that the guilty parties on both sides of the corruption have been caught once again with their hands in the cookie jar.
 Now it turns out that the reason the leftwing media types have been cheering on the smaller government corruptions so prevalent in the Barack Obama administration and ignoring all the larger ones is that they’re not really neutral news-gatherers at all . . . no, no, no:  they’ve had a horse in the race all along . . . here’s another group of related stories they won’t choose to run:
 
ITEM: The Obamacare bill that passed, the one no one had time to read was NOT the bill promised but one substituted at the last minute just before the voting which illegally funded the program’s start-up $108 Billion beyond merely providing the ways and means . . . that is, it illegally took away the rights of future congresses to decide upon its funding year after year.
ITEM: That same Obamacare has provisions for several unmonitored slush funds most of them under the auspices of Health and Human Services Secretary Sibelius.
 
ITEM: Reporter Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller online news website revealed less than two weeks ago that several of these socialized-medicine slush funds were used to dole out several Billion dollars to favored recipients. From one of these slush funds called EERP (Early Retiree Re-insurance Program) almost $2 Billion worth of contributions to specific political allies including several unions; select corporations; and some government pension funds many associated with labor unions all were made within the last year. The Daily Caller is one of the “new media” that the mainstream media has been so unceasingly critical of. Their story unlike the typical mainstream media story on politics had no editorial opinion,  just facts easily verified by anyone actually seeking truth.
 ITEM: Two of Barack Obama’s biggest media cheerleaders: the Washington Post and CBS Television received hundreds of thousands of dollars each from EERP thus bankrolling the health care of these Obama-supporting cash-challenged companies’ retirement fund with government money a.k.a. your taxes and mine. “The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money,” according to research presented by the Daily Caller. “It is fine with me if they continue covering the ObamaCare debate,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, in an e-mail to the Daily Caller.  “When NBC used to cover energy issues, they identified themselves as a subsidiary of General Electric. (So now) CBS and Washington Post will just have to disclose that they are subsidiaries of the Obama Administration.” 
ITEM: You will not be surprised to know that neither the Washington Post nor CBS nor the rest of the mainstream left-leaning media have reported on these corrupt practices.
 
ITEM:   A follow-up story on another “new media” blogsite:  Hot Air revealed that both The Washington Post and CBS have totally ignored problems with the slush fund secretly bankrolling health care for their early retirees.  Hot Air reported that a search for ERRP on the Post website last week revealed ZERO, zilch, nada concerning the corrupt practices.   Indeed,  searching the Post website for the full name of the slush fund revealed only one article from a right-wing source.   In keeping with that trend, a search on the CBS website, for ERRP also produced no entries — while a search for the full name of the slush fund returned only one entry, a link to the Obama administration’s health care reform website.
 
ITEM: The contrast in style and substance between the new media that the left has been so strongly critical of could not be greater. Real news, real watch-dogging of our government and its corruptions has been the domain of the right-wing media for quite some time. Even when both were criticizing President George W. Bush . . . while the left indulged in mere name-calling . . . evidence and supporting factual connections on subjects like Bush’s failure to protect the border; and the increased pace of shipping jobs overseas during the Bush administration came largely from the news gatherers among the right-wing media.
 
ITEM: Mr. Boyle’s original column in the Daily Caller was no exception. Research uncovered from Congressional testimony and other public documents was only part of his story he also sought and collected opposing points of view just like they teach you in J-school. And let us repeat:  there was zero editorial comment to be found in Boyle’s story . . . just the facts, Ma'am, just the facts.
 
ITEM: This latest abuse of public funds highlights the danger of ever-over-growing, ever-more-powerful centralized government and especially it sounds a warning about the abuses to come as the additional controls over the healthcare marketplace begin to unfold.
 
ITEM: Isn’t it ironic that real journalism severely-criticized by the cheerleaders of the left, uncovered a real story about real corruption between Mr. Obama’s so-called Healthcare Reform programs and between the same left-wing media that unthinkingly and uncritically supports every foolish idea Barack Obama presents them. “Bought and Paid For” is how one old friend of Rajjpuut’s father’s used to put it . . . “Bought and Paid For!”

 
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
Rajjpuut
 
** You do remember when these “usual subjects” ran stories for a month after the morning in late March, 2009, when Obamacare was passed (with Nancy Pelosi and her crowd marching up the Capitol steps bearing the over-sized gavel) claiming the “racist” TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party guilty of spitting on Black Democratic congressmen and calling them “nig_ers” “23 times. Of course when Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 reward for conclusive evidence that this happened (he required just one instance of using the “N-word” to validate the charges and collect the $100,000) . . . strangely among all the dozens of reporters and cameras and videotape cassettes in evidence, no one has ever collected the money; indeed, no one has ever attempted to collect Breitbart’s money . . . but, of course, no apologies to the supposedly “racist, hate-mongering, stupid and astroturf” TEA Party was ever made. And, naturally, the amount of evidence showing this supposed racism, hate-mongering, stupidity and that they not a grassroots uprising but are a “Republican Party front organization has also not been forthcoming.
^^ The demagoguery is always the same: there is no debt crisis; there is enough money, especially if we take all that the rich (who create jobs via small business) have. Our children and grandchildren will only be hurt if the Republicans interfere with all the UNfunded entitlement programs the left insists are actually very well-funded. Those evil, insensitive conservatives want to throw grandma and all the poor out in the streets; and their highest desire is to see all welfare recipients eating catfood.

Rajjpuut Begins Weekly Media Evaluation

By any measure, July, 2010 was a Bad Day at Black Rock for the journalistic professionals, particularly the MSM (mainstream media). Hoping that July 31, marks the lowest of the low and a media resurgence is in the air . . . .

MEDIA MEASURES July 23 - 30, 2010

Rajjpuut hopes to stimulate the rebound of the American Journalistic Profession by running a weekly blog to be called “Media Measure” highlighting the best and the worst aspects of journalism over the past seven days. Since at present the weakest area of the media is political coverage, until further notice that will be the emphasis for Media Measure. But is such a blog truly necessary? Judge for yourself . . . .

The last full week in July, 2010, saw ten key stories play out in the political arena. Here’s a summary of what’s went on:

#1 Wikileak Reveals over 100,000 leaked Afghanistan War documents:

EVENT: A blogsite releases huge amounts of Field documents on the Afghanistan War many of which are covered in depth by the NY Times, etc.

IMPORTANCE: Unlike the “Pentagon Papers” released during the Viet Nam War this is NOT a case of our government lying to us, but rather someone getting a lot of secret documents and releasing them. It appears that the lives of troops on the ground are not that important and certainly in the Wikileak version, many Taliban informants are outright named in the documents putting their lives in danger. The NY Times ran the story but was about 95% effective in taking out names and GPS coordinates and other key information. Wiklieak and the NY Times both slanted things anti-war.

Best Reporting: ABC FOX NEWS CBS

Other: WS Journ jumped the shark to accuse liberal media of wanting to end the Afghan War without considering consequences. Excuse me? This is journalism, getting inside other journalists’s heads without proof? FACTS, FACTS, FACTS, please.

#2 JournoList Conspiracy to slant news

EVENT: After e-mail leaks, over 400 liberal journalists, academicians, media people are discovered to be involved in a thirteen-year old conspiracy via e-mail called JournoList to slant news coverage in the country.support Barack Obama and distract attacks on him using the terms “racist” and “racism.”

IMPORTANCE: Why is it that some seemingly important news doesn’t get covered while other trivial or even distorted stories are covered in sickening depth? This could be the answer. This 400+ person group conspired to lessen the impact of the “God Damn America” story with Obama’s reverend Wright by downplaying, by ignoring and by seeking or making unsubstatiated charges against conservative leaders. One woman journalist told the boys to bite the bullet on Wright that she was hurt “as a woman and a journalist” by having to ignore Monica, Jennifer Flowers, etc. for the good of the cause. These people conspired to make Barack Obama president and he succeeded.

Best Reporting: Only FOX NEWs covered the story with any depth; only FOX noted that JournoList had become extinct overnight, but that the group was still getting together as a new listserv group called CabalList.

Other: The Wall Street Journal has long criticized the MSM for left-leaning media bias, now when the proof is handed them, they completely bumble the coverage. WSJ did a horrible job on the two main stories of the week.

#3 Obama and Biden Begin “Summer of Recovery Tour”

Event: The President and VP are campaigning under the guise of a “look what great things we’ve done for you” evaluation of the economic situation.

Importance: Media coverage is automatic. If Media doesn’t put the “tour” in its proper light (a propaganda event at every stop rather than as hard news (which Obama prefers) than the Big Lie that “He’s saved us from a Great Depression” has a chance at being successfully sold and the administration's failure to provide jobs will be overlooked. Rather than using the Stimulus money back in early 2009 as one would expect, NOW, the administration is releasing a bunch of it to highlight their “tour."

Best Reporting: only FOX News and WSJ questioned the administrations, facts figures and conclusions every step of the way. Virtually all the rest of the media all the time covered the events as isolated incidents and gave ultra-positive coverage to the adminstration.

#4 and #5 and #6 Reverse-Racism Scandals Rock the DOJ + Sherrod firing by the Agriculture Department

Events: A) Obama appointee Deputy Attorney General Julie Fernandez, heading up the DOJ, has told a roomful of Department of Justice Employees there is “no interest” in investigating or prosecuting voter-intimidation or discrimination cases with White victims and Black perpetrators; and that the DOJ will not investigate violations of the Motor Voter Law “because it would dampen turnout.” B) the DOJ dropped a case won by the Bush administration against four New Black Panthers who intimidated a Black poll watcher and White voters in Philadelphia during the Presidential elections giving one Panther less than a slap on the wrist “punishment” and exonerating the rest. In another “racially-tinged matter, the administration, the Agriculture Department and the NAACP all rushed to judgment and fired a Black employee for racism; then reviewed the evidence and sought to apologize while accusing FOX News of causing their mistake.

IMPORTANCE: Is that the Department of INjustice? The first “post-racial” president has used the words “race,” “racism” and “racist” as the cornerstone of their reason for being and as their excuse for every charge of incompetence brought against them. Accusations are treated most often by the mainstream media as PROOF without further investigation (such as the “N-word” controversy during the Obamacare vote passage . . . despite literally hundreds of videocameras, the N-word was never used at that event). FOX news actually dragged its feet and did NOT cover the story until after Ms. Sherrod was fired despite administration and NAACP claims to the contrary. Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity of FOX covered the firing and the abbreviated video clip condemning Sherrod as the NAACP had and as the president and Agri-Dept did in firing her. O’Reilly and Hannity apologized to Ms. Sherrod once they had the full tapes (apologies do NOT happen in the MSM even though they have much more to apologize for than FOX).

Best Reporting: No one looked particularly good WSJ with a B- and FOX with a C+ were easily best. The rest of the media ran the NAACP and administration line that FOX had caused the Sherrod fiasco without checking it out, and of course, never apologized to FOX. Most importantly, the MSM ignored the Julie Fernandez and Black Panther stories for the most part and earned an F- as a group.

#7 White House memo on Amnesty by Presidential Edict is revealed

Event: An undated White House memo discusses the option of Presidential Directive to provide Amnesty for illegal aliens without resorting to congress

Importance: President Obama seems bent upon making the U.S. congress a rubber-stamp organization or totally irrelevant. This is clearly an unconstitutional act being contemplated

Best Reporting: ABC A FOX News B+ Too often FOX opinion commentators get off track forgetting that opinion is only valid if facts are there to support them. ABC was truly the “fair and balanced” people on this story. The problem was that there was just too little evidence to allow conjecture of the sort that FOX’s Hannity for example allowed himself to make. FOX New’s straight news coverage was actually a bit better than ABC’s but FOX opinion folk need to learn restraint. Yes, 55% of the voters now DO call Obama a “socialist” but moving from there to dictator in one fell swoop is not professional without evidence to back it up.

Lesser Stories: #8 Gulf Oil Leak Nearing Resolution? #9 Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law #10 Pelosi and Rangel Scandal

Events: Ongoing long-time hard news stories

Importance: is treatment objective and accurate? Does media hold government accountable?

Best Reporting: FOX News far and away A+. Wall St. Journal A- The MSM did its best coverage on the oil spill, BP and the moratorium, but many downplayed the moratorium story, thus protecting Obama. MSM showed very little appetite for Rangel’s corruption proceedings and totally went to bat for Obama in virtually all coverage of the Arizona law. According to the MSM, Rajjpuut, a half-Hispanic is an overt racist because he thinks the prefix “il” in the word “illegal” means something.

OVERALL GRADES for the Week of July 23-30, 2010:

FOX A-

Wall St. Jour C+

ABC C-

CBS D

NBC F

PBS 40%

WASH Post 30%

NY Times 10%

CNN Totally irrelevant

Critical Commentary:

FOX needs to remember that no one needs or wants pure opinion without a strong factual basis.

The Wall Street Journal with its narrower “business” orientation does work at a handicap to broadbased news organizations but can do better.

ABC showed itself capable of hard news treated evenly and in depth with: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/immigration-memo-republicans-accuse-obama-administration-scheming-amnesty/story?id=11288210

but needs to totally revamp to once again regain the glory of its earlier history.

CBS “Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Or you Walter Cronkite?

NBC It’s been a long, long fall since Huntley-Brinkley.

PBS This is what the nation and “viewers like you” are paying for?

Washington Post Until they re-learn what journalism is about there is little hope. One only wonders if Mr. Obama gives them plenty of orgasms while bedding them.

NY Times Pushed the progressive Democrat agenda all week long. While it did much better than Wikileak, it still endangered our troops and Taliban informers unnecessarily.

CNN Back in the '90's, Rajjpuut some days would watch CNN coverage 3-4 hours a day, but look at their vaunted political coverage now:

CNN

Politics

· Broken Government

· CNN Polling Center

· State of the Union Address

· Midterm Elections

· The 44th President: The First Year

· Edward Kennedy: 1932-2009

· The Sotomayor Vote

· Election Center 2008

· Freshman Year

· Transition to Power

· The 44th President: Inauguration

· The 44th President: First 100 Days

Over all: A very bad week all around. Rajjpuut earned a 3.92 GPA and was his university’s “Academic Excellence Award” in Journalism winner, but takes no pride in that now . . . what a sorry disgraceful week to call oneself a “journalist!”

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

Rajjpuut

Monday the White House, NAACP, and the Department Of Agriculture freaked out over two video clips posted on an Internet blog showing Shirley Sherrod; who was the state director of rural development in Georgia addressing a NAACP sponsored event for it's members telling them how she in passed years handled a poor White farmer in need of saving his farm. In the video clips, Shirley Sherrod used racist, bigoted words describing how she dealt with the White farmer at first. In the rest of the video she tells how she learned race did not matter when people need help.

NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said Shirley Sherrod, who is African American should be fired. Then Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said she was fired and the Obama White House supported his decision.

CNN went to death-com one to find out who Shirley Sherrod was, how to contact her and find the White farmer. CNN called Shirley putting her on air live asking her what was going on. Shirley said the White House wanted her resignation or she would be fired, they said I was going to be on the Glenn Beck show.

Shirley went on to say she was driving home at the time she received four phone calls from Cheryl Cook, the federal USDA rural development undersecretary. The last call from Cheryl she “asked me to pull to the side of the road and do it, resign,” she said. The Obama, White House is standing firm that they did not pressure Shirley Sherrod for her resignation. It was the secretary’s decision, as he has said.

Glean Beck's Monday show did not air any reports about Shirley Sherrod or the videos, on his Tuesday show Beck said Shirley Sherrod firing was wrong. The NAACP owned and had a copy of the video tap that has caused all this racist blowout, they themselves did not teke the time to review their our full copy of the tape before throwing Shirley Sherrod under the bus as did the Obama White House. Yet, the NAACP released a statement saying they were snookered by Fox New. That's the blame game at it's best, don't let the facts get in the way.

Shirley Sherrod is an Obama political appointee, anyone believing the White House did not have a say in Shirley resigning would have to live in the land of OZ. Yet, CNN and other national news groups seem to work in zombie-land and believe whatever the White House puts out. From Monday till Wednesday CNN had Shirley Sherrod in almost lock-down at their Atlanta news headquarters or a reporter with her everywhere she went. Some think CNN may have more information as to a White House involvement and for some reasons are not reporting the connections name. White House press secretary Gibbs is saying he has no idea who from the White House staff corresponded with the Department Of Agriculture.

All that's being said now is a White House liaison person "No name given" working within the Department Of Agriculture dealt with the Shirley Sherrod issue and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. All Vilsack is saying about the issue is, it was his decision. This issue is not over by no means no matter who wants it to go away.

The NAACP did not ask Tea Party leaders to come to their Kansas City meeting this past weekend and discuss any issues they had with the group. Instead the NAACP went to the national media saying they were going to draft a resolution they knew would smear the Tea Party as a racist group leading up to the November election. The NAACP resolution was basic and had no real facts backing it up in calling on the Tea Party to expel any racist or fringe groups in it ranks. In going after the Tea Party all the NAACP accomplished was bring a boat load of heat down on its own national group alone with questions about its own ranking members and group associations.

The NAACP playing the race card and crying wolf at the Tea Party has only made Americans take a strong look at how politics and political back stabbing are getting way out of hand across the country. The NAACP has it now where anyone not for the democratic party is branded as a right wing racist. Obama has repeatedly bashed the Tea Party movement in his town hall meetings.

Andrew Breitbart told CNN’s “John King USA” on Tuesday that releasing the video clip he was given was “not about Shirley Sherrod.” “This was about the NAACP attacking the Tea Party, and this is showing racism at an NAACP event,” he said. “I did not ask for Shirley Sherrod to be fired."

NAACP's actions against the Tea Party has Americans fearing a racial divide will erupt and cause wide spread violence at a time when all Americans are hurting from the economic crisis. The Tea Party has been all along policing its members and groups, it's posted on their websites what they require from their members. What's not getting national air time is all the racist attacks against Tea Party member at their events held around the country. Plus they're having to deal with left wing fringe groups trying to infiltrate their events starting trouble or setting up a video fake racist act and claming it was Tea Party member's, this is happening and has been documented.

The NAACP's race card actions against the Tea Party movement is having a major backlash effect. This week the Congressional Tea Party Caucus became a reality, and the movement is growing even bigger. Americans are focused on the economy and jobs and that's the Tea Party's banner message for democrats and republicans who want to keep their job or be elected to office.

This week our nations First Lady Michelle Obama had no problem attending a NAACP meeting held in Kansas City knowing the organization was going to issue a resolution that would basically brand the Tea Party as a White racist group.


Tea Party leadership and supporters rejected the NAACP's racist claim and resolution as a sad and uncalled for attempt to discredit the newly formed national political grassroots movement.


Now, Tea Party supporters are demanding that the NAACP look in it's own back yard and lead by example and denounce any Black racist groups or racist elements within their national group.


After First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the NAACP meeting the Obama family went on a weekend vacation trip to Maine. This action by the Obamas made news over the weekend because Michelle and President Obama have been on TV numerous times over the past three months, pleading for Americans to vacation in the Gulf Coast area to support them in their time of need while dealing with the oil disaster. President Obama needs to address the NAACP's actions against the Tea Party movement.


Two main issues national media groups are not pointing out about the NAACP's action against the Tea Party Movement is:


1. The NAACP never requested a meeting with Tea Party leadership to discuss with them what the Tea Party is all about; or if they in anyway tolerate racists or racist groups within their national group.


2. The NAACP never offered Tea Party leadership an invitation to attend their Kansas City meeting to find common ground so the two groups could work together for a better America for all citizens.


Instead, the NAACP showed it's true democratic colors and went straight for the Tea Party's throat, smearing the group in the national media with a racist resolution. The NAACP's handing of the Tea Party with an in-your-face racist resolution leaves no doubt they never intended to reach out to the Tea Party movement as the group is seen as an affront to the democratic party and its big government policies.


The fact that First lady Michelle Obama attend the NAACP meeting and Obama is on record calling members of the Tea Party Tea Baggier's as a put down joke begs the question, how far and willing are democrats prepared to go in trying to disgrace the Tea Party movement?


The NAACP Tea Party resolution and media coverage of it, has made Americans think back at how left-leaning prominent media groups trashed Sara Palin and her family members in the 2008 election. It was nothing less than a hundred year setback for the women's movement in our society this day and time.


Americans are far more politically savvy than network talking head pundits pushing a political party's agendas while getting paid for it.


The Tea Party movement this week has showed all Americas it has a strong backbone and true to it's founding principles by staying focused on the groups cause and core issues; all the while the NAACP and media groups were hell-bent on destroying the Tea Party with fake wolf cries. Tea Party members across America have been physically and verbally attacked at their events by Black racists, Union members, left-wing activists, and dealt with attempts of hate groups trying to infiltrate their events trying to make them look bad. Americans have seen that national media groups are very willing to ignore all the racist acts and race hate threats toward the Tea Party movement.


NAACP, the political ball is in your court now for all Americans to see if you will step up to the plate and practice what you preach to others. The NAACP should have no problem going before the national media denouncing the Black Panthers Party, the New Black Panthers Party or stating they will not tolerate any racist group or like-minded persons within their ranks as well.
