Rasmussen: Voters by 5-to-1 margin believe that America’s media is in Democrat’s pocket

Are Americans finally waking up to the enemedia? It is the only thing that can save us.

Washington Secrets: (h/t Weasel Zippers) – Likely voters, by a five-to-one margin, believe that America’s media is in President Obama’s pocket and will treat his candidacy better than challenger Mitt Romney’s as the election nears, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

The startling numbers point to an even more disturbing trend for the media: Reporters just aren’t trusted to deliver the news in an unbiased fashion. The proof: Rasmussen found that when it comes to information about the presidential campaign, 48 percent of likely voters trust friends and family while just 26 percent trust reporters.

The poll of 1,000 was conducted August 9-10 before many more tuned in to the campaign when Romney chose Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate. Since then, many cable reporters and pundits have vocally assailed Ryan.

The poll found that 59 percent of likely voters believe that the media has given Obama better treatment than Romney, a view Team Obama doesn’t agree with. Just 18 percent believe the media has treated Romney better.

Gallup: Americans despise the mainstream media – only 21% approval

The Democrat media complex has lost all credibility

 Newsbusters via Weasel Zippers

Beware television anchors who bash the House Republicans by citing their low approval rating. On May 20, CBS Face the Nation host expressed amazement that Speaker John Boehner would talk about using the debt ceiling to limit spending again when the approval rating of Congress “hit a new low. And now he wants to fight the same battle? Was he kidding?”

Schieffer and his colleagues will probably ignore the latest finding from Gallup’s Confidence in Institutions Survey: television news has fallen to a 21 percent approval rating, a record low and just eight points higher than Congress. “Organized religion, public schools, Congress, and television news are all currently at least 10 points lower than their historical average ratings.”

Israeli Ambassador Oren: WaPo’s anti-Israel article “libelous”

The media is the enemy.

The Washington Compost is no different from the NY Slimes, or any other Democrat-controlled media outlet.

(Times of Israel) – Israel’s ambassador to the United States on Thursday denounced as “libelous” an article that appeared in The Washington Post which claimed that Israel prevents “the vast majority of Christians living in the West Bank” from entering Jerusalem to attend Easter holy week ceremonies.

“It’s a libelous article,” Ambassador Michael Oren said of the piece, headlined “A dark Easter for Palestinian Christians” and written by Richard Stearns, the US president of World Vision, a global Christian humanitarian agency.

In the piece, which focuses on the annual “Holy Fire” ceremony at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City, Stearns writes that “local Christians estimate that only 2,000-3,000 permits are provided” by the Israeli authorities for West Bank Christians to come to Jerusalem for key Easter week celebrations. This “despite the overwhelming desire among 50,000 Palestinian Christians” to come to the city in Easter week.

Not so, said Oren. “The army and security services have created a situation where virtually any Christian in the West Bank can visit the Holy Places in Jerusalem on Good Friday and Easter.” He estimated that some 20,000 entry permits had been issued this year.

Officials said only West Bank Christians suspected of posing a security risk were denied permits. They said Israel also annually issues hundreds of permits for the diminishing Christian community in Hamas-controlled Gaza to come to Jerusalem at Easter.

Stearns’s article included a prayer for “another miracle” — in addition to that of the “Holy Fire” ceremony — “one that would give full religious freedom to the Christians in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Said Oren: “Israel is committed to enabling free access to the Holy Places and to maintaining our excellent relations with the Christian world.”

Washington Times: Forgerygate – Ignoring Arpaio’s evidence of Obama’s forgery is a scandal in itself

This is the scandal of the decade, and yet no one in the mainstream media, nor, sadly, virtually anyone on the right, including the best of the conservative blogs, wants to touch it. (Go here for the story and the damning videos released by Sheriff Arpaio and his Cold Case Possee.)

Shame on them all. WND and the Washington Times are about the only media people with the guts to expose the Obama regime’s fraud.

Why? It’s not because the allegations are false. Anyone who reads Arpaio’s report and watches the videos can’t possibly deny that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery. It can only be due to fear of ridicule, and fear that to press the matter would somehow hurt the Republicans in the elections. The latter is a false assumption, but clearly one too many conservatives embrace.

This is not about “birtherism”. This is about blatant forgery and cover-up at the highest level, and about the media’s complicity in lying to the American people. If Barack Obama is re-elected, the entire conservative media will be partly to blame. They have the goods yet choose to look the other way. Obama’s obviosly fraudulent birth certificate has been out there for years, and conservatives chose to cower instead of standing up for the TRUTH. If the right is truly serious about “vetting” Obama, this story is a gift from heaven. Writing at the American Thinker on March 2nd, Cindy Simpson had this brow-arching tidbit:

“At the press conference, WND journalist Dr. Jerome Corsi reported that he had arranged on the evening prior, a private conference between the sheriff and conservative media champion Andrew Breitbart, and Corsi wondered whether it might have been Breitbart’s last interview. As we mourn Breitbart’s passing, we hope that his colleagues continue to pursue his inspiring legacy of boldness in uncovering and reporting the truth.  At CPAC, Breitbart had assured attendees:  “This election, we’re going to vet [Obama].””

If this is so, then we should be asking, “What would Breitbart do?”

Here was Sheriff Arpaio’s entire press conference, which the media dutifully pretty much ignored. Here is the Arpaio report in pdf..

Washington Times – Is President Obama’s birth certificate a forgery? Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., believes it is. He recently held a press conference in Phoenix to discuss the findings of a new 10-page report. Mr. Arpaio’s investigators have come to a stunning conclusion: The long-form birth certificate Mr. Obama released last year is a “computer-generated forgery.”

With the exception of The Washington Times, however, no major U.S. media outlet reported this bombshell story. The liberal press corps is desperately trying to suppress any discussion of Forgerygate — potentially one of the biggest scandals in American history. The media class is betraying its fundamental mission to pursue the truth.

“Based on all of the evidence presented and investigated, I cannot in good faith report to you that these documents are authentic,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “My investigators believe that the long-form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in paper format as claimed by the White House.”

The Washington Times story, written by Stephen Dinan, points out that Mr. Arpaio has called for Congress to investigate the matter. Think about this: A high-profile sheriff orders a team of former law enforcement officials to examine whether the president is truly a natural born citizen and that he has the constitutional and legal right to occupy the White House. Their official report is that Mr. Obama’s documents are shoddy and he likely engaged in deliberate fraud. And yet, most of the American press corps doesn’t believe this is an important news story? The liberal media has become rotten to the core.

Ironically, the foreign press reported widely on the story. For example, Pravda — that’s right, the former official organ of the Soviet Communist Party — did an extensive analysis of Mr. Arpaio’s findings. The article by Dianna Cotter asks the obvious question: What are U.S. journalists afraid of?

The answer is that the issue strikes at the heart of Mr. Obama’s administration: If his presidency is illegal, then all of his accomplishments — the stimulus, Obamacare, the contraceptive mandate, the government takeover of the auto sector and appointments to the Supreme Court — are illegitimate as well. The scandal would trigger a constitutional crisis.

Following Mr. Obama’s surprise news conference last year, when he unveiled the long-form certificate, the media insisted that the controversy was settled once and for all. The “birthers” supposedly had been silenced. Mr. Arpaio’s report, however, changes that. The issue has been resuscitated — except in the eyes of the mainstream media.

A prominent sheriff says he has damning evidence that Mr. Obama probably lied to the public. The international media believes it’s a big deal; many Americans agree. They want to get to the bottom of it. Yet, the liberal hacks at the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC can do nothing more than yawn.

Contrast this with their treatment of President George W. Bush. Throughout the Bush years it was open season: routine comparisons to Adolf Hitler, charges of being a war criminal, calls for impeachment, trumped-up scandals like the Valerie Plame affair, investigations into the partying habits of his teenage daughters, stories about Mr. Bush’s drinking as a younger man, his National Guard service and mediocre college grades — journalists left no stone unturned, no questions unanswered, no topic was beyond the pale.

Not with Mr. Obama. In fact, the opposite is true: Almost everything pertinent is not to be touched. He is the least-vetted president in modern memory. During the 2008 campaign, the liberal media deliberately propped up Mr. Obama. They suppressed vital information about his radical past and deep ties to virulent revolutionary leftists — the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Derrick Bell, Saul Alinsky and Edward Said. For all of their differences, they share one value in common: hatred for traditional America.

To this day, Mr. Obama’s college transcripts, undergraduate thesis and health records remain sealed. We know little about his years in Indonesia as a young boy; his overseas trips to countries like Pakistan in the 1980s; his relationship with his mother and Muslim stepfather; and his time spent as a “community organizer” in Chicago. In short, the president’s past is clouded in mystery. This is not conspiracy-mongering, but objective fact. Americans have a right to know who their commander-in-chief really is. Instead, the media wants to bury any debate or inquiry into Mr. Obama’s background.

Whether you believe Mr. Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery or not, Mr. Arpaio should be applauded. He has done our nation a huge service. He is asking the press corps to look into an issue of the highest importance: Has the president committed a monstrous hoax and fraud upon the American people? In particular, the sheriff’s team has identified a supposed “person of interest” who they believe played a pivotal role in Forgerygate. The media must follow up on the story. If it is false, then Mr. Arpaio will be rightly humiliated and publicly discredited. But if — and I stress if — it is true, then the press will have unearthed a scandal that will shake this country to its very foundations. Either way, it’s time the media did their job and stop acting like Mr. Obama’s poodles.

WND – Sheriff Joe wants Obama’s original draft card

Asks feds: What steps will be taken to investigate possible forgery?

Following up on his investigative team’s finding of probable cause that Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration form is a forgery, Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio has asked Selective Service Director Lawrence Romo in a letter to produce original documentation.

A copy of Obama’s registration form indicates the registration took place at the Makaki Station Post Office in Honolulu on July 29, 1980. Arpaio wants court-approved, forensic experts selected by his office to examine the original for its authenticity, as well as any microfilm or computer copies that may exist.  (more >>>)

Daily Caller – Lord Monckton: ‘I’m no birther,’ but Obama birth certificate ‘plainly a forgery’

On Dennis Miller’s radio show Thursday Lord Christopher Monckton, a former policy adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and an activist against global warming “alarmism,” went all-in on questioning President Barack Obama’s citizenship.

Monckton, the 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, hinted about his position on the issue in April 2010 at a tea party rally on the National Mall near the White House. But on Miller’s show, he said the birth certificate issue was far more important that combatting so-called anthropogenic global warming.

“I mean, hey you got a president who has a false birth certificate on the Internet, on the White House website,” Monckton said. “It’s not even clear where he was born. You’ve got a national debt which is rising into the stratosphere. You’ve got unemployment certainly here in California at 11 percent, 50 percent in the construction industry. These are real problems. You’ve got real environmental problems — overfishing, deforestation, pollution, not so much in the west but certainly in other countries. These are real problems which ought to be addressed. You’ve got poverty. You’ve got disease. These are again serious problems in Africa for instance, that we could be helping with. But no, we’re obsessed with making the rich even richer and making the absolute bankers richer still by going for global warming and cap-and-trade and other nonsenses of this kind.”

Miller protested by saying he disagreed with the suggestion that Obama has a fraudulent birth certificate. But Monckton dug in his heels.

“I don’t know whether he is Kenyan or not,” Monckton said. “The point is that if I were you, I would want to make absolutely sure that he was born here before allowing him to be elected. And the birth certificate that he put up on that website, I don’t know where he was born. But I do know that birth certificate isn’t genuine.”

Monckton firmly asserted that the birth certificate on the White House website wasn’t real, and claimed it could be dismantled with software.

“It appears in layers on the screen in such a way you can remove quite separately each of the individual dates,” Monckton said. “You use Adobe Illustrator and each of the individual dates is in its own separate layer. This thing has been fabricated. Sheriff [Joe] Arpaio of Arizona has had a team on this for six months. And he has now gone public and said there’s something very desperately wrong with this and of course nobody is saying anything because the entire electorate has been fooled.”

“I’m no birther, don’t get me wrong,” Monckton said. “I haven’t a clue where Obama was born and I wouldn’t want to entreat into the private grief behind investigating. But the point is, is what he has done on the White House website is he has put up a document which he is plainly a forgery and I would regard that as a very serious matter.”

Rally for Rush!

This is another Liberal digital lynching.

What would Breitbart do?

UPDATE: Email and phone numbers of the gutless companies below.

Rally for Rush

By

Carbonite CEO tied to MoveOn.org: time for conservatives to fight blacklisting?

So. Did you hear about Carbonite and Rush Limbaugh?

No, you didn’t. Not the way you will in a minute. But first?

It’s time to turn the tables.

It’s time to stand up to the bullies.

It’s time to Rally for Rush.

Rush Limbaugh has discussed at length — at length — what Sandra Fluke and her statist cronies are up to. Yes, he used the words “slut” and “prostitute” — using the ludicrous to make his point. Ms. Fluke, in one of the most pathetic, shamelessly whining stories in recent memory, demands to be paid for her sex life because it costs $3,000 for three years of birth control while she’s at law school. She demands that a Catholic university violate its fundamental right to religious liberty so she can have others pay for her sex life. So Rush asked the farcical obvious about somebody who demands that someone else pay her for her apparent, self-admitted prolific sex life. He spent two solid days relating her greed for other people’s money and a lack of personal responsibility to the oldest of principles.

Right on cue, the blacklisting crowd came out of their Stalinist caves. Having driven Lou Dobbs from CNN, cut off Beck’s windpipe at Fox, severed Pat Buchanan from MSNBC, thus emboldened they have now set their sights on Rush.

And Rush, threatened with his livelihood, has issued this statement:

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit? In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

This, but of course, was not enough to satisfy. Sandra Fluke herself raced to the Ed Schultz show on MSNBC to denounce Rush. Yes, the same Ed Schulz who not long ago called conservative radio and TV commentator Laura Ingraham a “slut.” And he wasn’t joking either. But suddenly, Ms. Fluke simply didn’t care. Why? Because this entire controversy over Rush’s words was never about the actual subject. It was really about yet another drive to blacklist yet another conservative in the media.

Big mistake. Really big mistake.

Did I mention Carbonite yet? Hold on.

IN THE DAYS AFTER the death of Andrew Breitbart, perhaps the question can be phrased this way: “What would Andrew do?” Well, first, he would suggest you go to one of his sites to learn the facts — and in this case a very interesting fact about Sandra Fluke’s view of free speech. Here’s the link at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government where you will find this opening in a story by Charles Johnson:

As a student at Cornell and treasurer of a pro-choice organization at the school, Sandra Fluke, helped shut down a pro-life speech on Cornell’s campus by counter protesting. She argued that a pro-life organization at Cornell was about “manipulating [students’] emotions” with misleading statistics about abortion. But when it is her turn to speak on Capitol Hill, the third-year Georgetown Law Student demands she gets her say in a hearing that has nothing to do with birth control.

Well, well, well. So Sandra Fluke has a record of denying free speech to others? In addition to giving a pass to Mr. Ed on the slut business? Free speech for Sandra Fluke but not Rush Limbaugh or those pro-lifers at Cornell? Interesting, yes? Hypocritical and thuggish, definitely. She also walked out in protest of the congressional hearing where supporters of religious liberty were allowed to speak. It turns out, as reported here, that Fluke is no struggling law student — she’s already a professional far-left genderist, long deeply into the leftist scam of judging others by skin color or gender.

We all know the answer as to what Andrew Breitbart would do in this situation. He would stand up to the bullies.

So buckle in. And when you are finished reading — don’t sit there pondering. Stand up. Do something. And yes…. I will have suggestions as to exactly what you can do to Rally for Rush.

As a matter of fact, let’s start right there. Let’s start with what you can do right now. Continue reading

Newt crams Lib reporter’s idiocy back down his throat

Newt wasn’t going to have any of Democrat apparatchik, David Gregory’s, liberal spin.

NewsBusters via GWP.

The segment began with Gregory introducing this subject by playing a video clip of Limbaugh’s comments regarding Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke followed by reading the conservative talk radio host’s apology.

After his opening admonishment, Gingrich said, “There is no debate about access to contraception. There is a debate, which Cardinal George of Chicago has pointed out, is a war against the Catholic Church. You do have this weird situation where President Obama apologizes to Islamic extremists while waging war against the Catholic Church.”

“Barack Obama as President,” Gingrich continued, “in the most radical anti-religious move made by any president, is trying to coerce the Catholic Church at a time when he’s been told by the bishops they would have to give up every single hospital…they would have to give up every single university and college associated with the church, because he is asking them to violate their religious beliefs.”

Gregory continued to press the issue saying, “Do you think it was harmful that Limbaugh, as certainly an influential voice in a conservative grassroots and you well know that, was it appropriate for him to apologize? Do you think that he’s done damage to the debate that you’re now getting into?”

After saying it was appropriate for Limbaugh to apologize, Gingrich challenged Gregory asking, “Do you think the President owes an apology to all the men and women in uniform who he frankly abandoned when he apologized to religious fanatics in Afghanistan? What’s your opinion, David?”

Not surprisingly, Gregory ignored that question and continued with the contraception issue asking, “Can you appreciate the view of those that disagree with you that this is an attack on women’s rights? That’s their view, reproductive rights, access to contraception, and the extreme that it’s some sort of war on women.”

Gingrich correctly replied, “Nobody’s blocking anyone from having access to contraception. No one. The young lady who testified can get access to contraception. Nobody said she couldn’t. The question is should a Catholic institution, or for that matter, the Ohio Christian University which is a Protestant institution, which is a very pro-Life institution, which is now being told it will have to pay for abortion pills. Should a Protestant fundamentalist institution be dictated to by Washington politicians over whether or not it can have its own religious beliefs, or have we become a country where it’s okay to go to church on Sunday morning for one hour, but let’s not actually express those beliefs the rest of the week?”

TIME Ragazine hails “The Protestor” as person of the year

The Obama Administration apparatchiks at TIME Ragazine are making Goebbels proud again with its choice of “The Protestor” as its 2011 person of the year.

Last week TIME named “Occupy Wall Street” the #1 story of the year, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise. The vast majority of Americans could care less about the Occupiers or the Arab Spring. The former they detest, the latter they fear.

But not TIME. Not Democrats. They think their support for both bowel movements will keep them occupying the White House.

Ed Morrissey at Hotair astutely points out TIME’s hypocrisy.

In 2009, Time had the same opportunity to pick “the protester” when the protests were the Tea Party and Iran’s Green Revolution, which followed from Ukraine’s Orange Revolution, and so on.  Who did they pick?  Ben Bernanke.  When the Tea Party movement actually delivered results at the ballot box in 2010 in a historic midterm drubbing of Barack Obama’s Democrats — they lost 68 seats, the worst outing since 1938 — they could have hailed The Protester then, too.  Who did they pick?  Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

For TIME and Liberals, the only legitimate protestors are those who protest in the name of Leftwing causes. Those who stand up for life and liberty, is anathema to them.

The Japanese tsunami should have been the 2011 story of the year.

Those individuals who rushed into Joplin, MO, after the devastating tornadoes are far more deserving to be the ‘person of the year’ than a bunch of radicals, be they Leftist or Islamic.

But TIME would never point out the good in America. Because for Liberals, socialists, and Marxists, good can only be accomplished through the State.

LA man goes on shooting rampage shouting “Allahu Akbar!”

But, as Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs points out, not one media outlet will tell you that:

What is most disturbing about this story, apart from the obvious horror, is that not one news account reported what one witness said the shooter was screaming: “allahu akbar.” Not one news account. The media is the enemy.

Check out the video here. One of the witnesses states that the shooter was repeatedly shouting “allahu akbar” at minute 2:42. This video is on the bottom right of the LA Times new story, but they don’t mention it in their coverage — neither does Reuters, CBS news, The Hollywood Reporter,KFAI, or any of the other news reports. I expect that this video will be removed or edited.

You can hear the witness for yourself. Better watch now before it vanishes like so many others these days. The witness is at 2:42.

Allen West tells the media to man up and do their job because “The guy sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is destroying this country”

Allen West lectures the media about what a bunch of lazy, irresponsible, Marxist butt-kissing traitors they truly are.

Okay, in my dreams. But he does give it to them pretty good.

Media smears Herman Cain with charges of sexual harassment

The ultimate evidence that Herman Cain is now recognized as a legitimate contender and a threat to Liberals has arrived. It began with the Goebbels media challenging Cain’s ‘authenticity’ as a black man. Only black Democrats can be authentically black, don’t we know.

But, as the absurdity inherent in those charges couldn’t slow down the Cain Train, the Liberal hitmen at Politico have taken their calumny to the next level, using the same tactics the racist Left used against Clarence Thomas in the early 1990s – charging sexual harassment. The Cain campaign, of course, condemns the malicious smear.

The Blaze writes:

In a statement to The Associated Press Sunday night, Cain‘s campaign said that the POLITICO report isn’t true and represents unfair attacks.

Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon said the political press was “dredging up thinly sourced allegations” from Cain’s tenure leading the trade group in the 1990s. Gordon said the report includes “unsubstantiated personal attacks” and said the press is “casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.”

Ann Coulter came to Herman Cain’s defense, pointing out the racism and hypocrisy of the Left.

Daily Caller – Politico dropped a bombshell story Sunday evening, charging that GOP presidential front-runner Herman Cain was accused of sexual harassment by two unnamed females in the late 1990s when he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo at Large” just an hour later, Ann Coulter likened the allegations to those Clarence Thomas faced in the early 1990s during his Supreme Court confirmation process. “Liberals are terrified of Herman Cain,” she said. “He is a strong, conservative black man … They are terrified of strong, conservative black men.

“It’s outrageous the way liberals treat a black conservative,” she told Geraldo. “This is another high-tech lynching. … Nothing liberals fear more than a black conservative. Ask Allen West. Ask Michael Steele. Ask Clarence Thomas. And even what the allegations are here, I mean, just shows you how the civil-rights juggernaut has gone off the rails. The idea of civil rights laws to begin with ironically was to protect blacks from Democrats from the South who won’t protect them. Now it’s you know, white women from Scarsdale who say, ‘Oh, I don’t like that he called me honey.’”

Coulter also questioned some of the details of the report and if they merited the definition of harassment.

“It’s not groping, it’s not touching or demanding sex,” Coulter said. “It’s that he had remarks that they found inappropriate. One is he had inappropriate gestures that were not overtly sexual. Well, what were they then? This isn’t dropping your pants and saying ‘kiss it.’ [Bill Clinton] This is an outrageous attack on a black conservative who is doing extremely well and will be our vice-presidential candidate.”

Roger Simon of PJmedia wrote: Politico and Cain: Return of the High-Tech Lynching

Politico typically buries the defense of Cain on page four of their article.

It’s interesting that his supporters use their real names (unlike his accusers). Ron Magruder, Denise Marie Fugo and Joseph Fassler, the chair, vice chair and immediate past chairman of the National Restaurant Association board of directors at the time of Cain’s departure, said they hadn’t heard about any complaints regarding Cain making unwanted advances.

“I have never heard that. It would be news to me,” said Fugo, who runs a Cleveland, Ohio, catering company, adding such behavior would be totally out of character for the Cain she knew. “He’s very gracious.”

The support goes on, but we all know that will never make the front of the news. As Glenn Reynolds points out, another black man ran for president and mainstream media has surfaced almost nothing about him after all these years. We don’t even know something so trivial as his college grades, although Rick Perry’s emerged seemingly minutes after he declared his candidacy.

They also gave him a pass on spending twenty years in the church of a virulent racist. No one in the media asked him a serious question about it, nor did they ask him in any depth about his friendship with a unrepentant Weatherman. That’s just cute.

But never fear, when it comes to a black conservative, Politico is on the case. Never mind that what really happened is of course just as unknown to them as it is to us. That’s not the point. A man like Cain cannot be allowed in the White House. Why… why…. he might just…. harass an intern!

This will surely be picked up by the Liberal comedians and late-night talk show creeps. They will further the smears under the guise of comedy, none of which they would ever dare to use with a Democrat.

Hopefully, Herman will stand tall and throw it back in their faces.

Stacy McCain at Theothermccain has some updates on the story: Cain Spokesman: ‘Smear Campaign Meant to Discredit a True Patriot’UPDATE: Former Campaign Aide Says Cain’s Behavior ‘Never Even Bordered on Inappropriate in the Slightest’

UPDATE:

Over at Hotair, both Ed Morrissey and Jazz Shaw weigh in on the controvery in their usual thoughtful fashion.

I think, however, they are a little too generous in their regard for the story. Even according to the original Politico story, Cain didn’t do or say anything worse than what might have offended the unnamed women’s feminist sensibilities. To my mind, this is a hit job, pure and simple. Politics is ugly, ugly business, and this race will prove uglier than most.

It’s a tactic right out of Saul Alinsky’s handbook, Rules for Radicals  – ‘Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.’

There are few charges worse for Republicans than sexual harrassment, and the Left knows it. For a Democrat, such charges are résumé enhancers, as Rush might say. But, for Republicans it’s nasty stuff. It’s the accussation alone, not the facts or the truth, that the state-run Goebbels media will run with.

I agree with Professor Jacobson at Legalinsurrection who says conservatives must not allow themselves to be bullied, that they should stand with Herman Cain, and not fold up like timid ninnies as they did with Sarah Palin and so many others. Okay, he said it better, so here it is.

[…] How should we react?  The instinct to defend a conservative is a good instinct.  We’ve seen too many times, with Sarah Palin and recently with Rick Perry, how the MSM will give every benefit of the doubt to those who make accusations.  We must fight against the use of mere accusations as evidence of actual misconduct.

If supporters of other candidates — particularly bloggers — gloat over Cain’s problems, post it in the comments and when I get back I’ll take a pixelated 2″  x 4″ to their heads, because piling on a fellow conservative is inexcusable.  It’s the principle I’ve been following for the past three  years when Republicans piled on and took cheap shots at Palin, and it’s a principle I’ll apply to Cain.

Video exposing media bias: Gilad Shalit – Who’s Blurring the Lines?

The media is always trying to conjure up moral equivalences that exist only in their twisted, hate-filled little minds.

on Oct 26, 2011

With the recent trade of captive IDF soldier Gilad Shalit for 1000 terrorists, international media has jumped at the opportunity to draw similarities and correlations…

Herman Cain: I’m not running for ‘Theologian-in-Chief’

Liberals are so shameless. Watch a CNN cow try to drag Herman Cain into a controversy over whether Mitt Romney, a Mormon, is a Christian.

Herman says, “I’m not running for ‘Theologian-in-Chief’,” and refuses to take the bait. But porky keeps it up, with a veiled threat, telling Herman that his answer “will beg the question that you dodged the question, which is, is Mitt Romney not a Christian?” Yes, it’s for just such eloquence that CNN pays the heifer the big bucks.

The same witch asked the same question of Michelle Bachmann. Not only that, after Bachmann also refused to bite, the ogress handed Bachmann the same threat.

Oh, these desperate Democrats. They know they are stuck with that embarrassment in the White House, and so they will do anything to distract from his failures.

Do you think this moose would dare ask Barack Obama if Reverend Wright is a real Christian? How about, is Louis Farrakhan a real Muslim? Never.

I’d have loved to hear one of them retort, “I know this, Mitt Romney is a hundred times the Christian than Barack Hussein Obama will ever be.”

Agitprop: Photojournalism behind the scenes in Israel

Watch this disturbingly fascinating video about how photo journalists cover Israel. It shows how staged and phony so many of the pictures the world sees truly are, and how these ‘journalists’ distort reality. It should serve as a wake up call to people everywhere how propagandistic journalism has become.

Caroline Glick – Watch the following video of the remarkable work of a young Italian photographer named Ruben Salvadori. Ruben’s project “Photojournalism Behind the Scenes won Milan’s prestigious Photodreaming Contest organized by the Forma Foundation.

Ruben Salvadori – Presentation of Photojournalism Behind the Scenes, an auto-critical photo essay showing the paradoxes of conflict-image production and considering the role of the photographer in the events.

This project was awarded the Photodreaming Contest organized by Forma Foundation in which I was then selected by Denis Curti, the director of Contrasto (the major photo-agency in Italy, which represents Magnum’s work in the country and for which the top Italian photographers work) to shoot an assignment for the prestigious agency.

Newsweek cover portrays Michelle Bachmann as psychotic banshee

The state-run media is up to their old trick of plastering major publications with unflattering, usually photoshopped pictures, of Republicans looking demented, even ghoulish.

The latest example is the new cover of Newsweek, and the victim, Michelle Bachmann.

Michelle Bachmann is a very attractive woman, and for a cover of a magazine, there are no doubt hundreds of photos to choose from, out of which surely at least one could have portrayed the congresswoman as she truly is. But, truly comes from the word truth, and neither ever applicable to rags like Time or Newsweek.

Check out Michelle Malkins piece about the Left’s dishonest obsession and hypocrisy, ‘The Conservative Crazy Eyes Cliche & Other Stupid MSM Photo Tricks.’ In it you can see a number of the more famous examples of Leftist childishness.

Blogs on both sides enjoy posting goofy pictures of their opponents. That’s both fun and goes with the territory.

But, when a major publication that prides itself on professionalism and journalistic integrity, pulls this stuff, and does so regularly, it is proof that the media source has neither professionalism nor integrity.

Plus, have you ever seen such stunts pulled on Barack Obama? Quite the opposite. As the below Glowbama Glowjob collage I put together demonstrates.

Go read Michelle Malkin’s column. Few know this hideous side of the media apparatchiks better than she.

Hotairpundit grabbed some previous Newsweek covers that demonstrate the ragazine’s hypocrisy well.

"He calls her his Rock"

 

"I found my own voice"

"Feed your children well"

"Woman of the year"

"Hear her roar"

But, for conservative Michelle Bachmann, we get “The Queen of Rage”! This is what passes for journalism among Liberals.

"The Queen of Rage"

NY Times, CNN, CBS to violate international law and join terrorist sympathizers in flotilla

America’s Useful Idiot Media is going to participate in the breaking of international law and give the Hamas terrorist cult and their fellow travellers in the U.S. millions of dollars worth of free propaganda.

Oh these brave Liberals in the media. They ignore what’s going on in Iran, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, and Sudan, where every day dozens of citizens are mowed down by terrorists or their own governments.

But they will brave those treacherous waters of America’s best and most loyal ally!

This is how low the Liberal media has sunk. May they and the rest of the passengers and crew sink all the way to the ocean floor.

No one could ever prove it, but considering how tight the Obama Administration is with these scumbags, it is not far-fetched to wonder whether Obama and all the other Alinsky apostles in his administration of radicals is behind the idea. If it isn’t their way of getting back at Netanyahu for his unwillingness to allow Israel to commit national suicide by signing on to Obama’s final solution to the problem of the Jewish State.

Will the Jew-haters at the Times, CNN, and CBS be traveling on the American flotilla entry, ‘Audacity of Hope,’ named in honor of Barack Hussein Obama and his moronic book?

There are no journalists anymore in the mainstream media. They are nothing but provocateurs and state-run apparatchiks, a monolithic 5th column of arrogant, overpaid self-loathing miscreants.

The mainstream media – making Goebbels proud 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Commentary (h/t Weasel Zippers) – Journalists from a variety of news outlets – including the New York Times and full camera crews from CNN, CBS – will be covering the anti-Israel flotilla from aboard one of the ships, according to The Nation correspondent Joseph Dana (who will also report from the flotilla).

While it’s hard to blame reporters for seeking out a colorful story, they should realize by joining the activists on the boat they are actually making themselves a part of the story. They will be with the flotilla when it attempts to violate international law by trying to break Israel’s legally-established naval blockade. And they could potentially interfere with the Israeli military’s ability to do its job if IDF soldiers are forced to board the ships.

The one upside of this development is at least now flotilla activists will have a more difficult time  attacking IDF soldiers with knives once the network news cameras are rolling. But the unfortunate downside is these reporters are giving the flotilla activists exactly what they’re aiming for – media attention. Seeing as there’s no humanitarian reason for the flotilla (which is even more obvious now that the Egyptian border with Gaza has been opened), its only point is to generate publicity. The activists are sure to receive a lot of media coverage this time around – and they won’t even have to resort to stabbing soldiers to get it.

See also Phyllis Chesler’s piece – The Flotilla of Fools off to Gaza. In it she shames the media, and especially the colossally ignorant useful idiot, Alice Walker, who is also joining the flotilla.

NBC accidentally on purpose edits God out of Pledge of Allegiance

It is no coincidence that Barack Obama has repeatedly left out “Creator” from the Declaration of Independence, that the Pledge of Allegiance is constantly under attack by the ACLU and various Leftist organizations, or that NBC edited out “under G-d” in its piece on the U.S. Open golf tournament held in Washington, D.C..

Make no mistake, the Left is at war on G-d, faith, and traditional American values. It has been for decades.

Daily Caller – Even something like the U.S. Open golf tournament held in Washington, D.C. this weekend isn’t immune from the perils of political correctness.

At the beginning of NBC’s Sunday broadcast of the final round of one of the four major golf tournaments in the world, an introduction aired that included images from the nation’s capital while the Pledge of Allegiance being recited by school children in the background. The problem: Conspicuously missing were the words “under God”:

I pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands with liberty and justice for all.

Later in the broadcast, one of the commentators apologized to viewers, but still managed to not say “under God”:

Earlier we began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time. Regrettably a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we’d like to apologize to those of you that were offended by it.

Obama’s “gutsy” order to his state-run media

Filed under ‘Making Goebbels Proud’.

In fact it took no guts at all. The guy tried to wiggle out of doing it for months. Any other person sitting in the White House would have jumped at the opportunity if the CIA had presented the opportunity to him or her. American soldiers make gutsier calls every day around the world, we just never hear about them.

The only persons more fraudulent that this pathetic president, is the mainstream media that props him up.

This is good by the way.

RobKraft – The talking points memo on Obama’s “gutsy call” went all over the country on May 2 from the Obama campaign. This is just a fraction of the “gutsy call” or “gutsy decision” available.

Trump stands up to CNN birth certificate scorn

Coming May 17th.

Donald Trump refuses to be intimidated by the state-run media’s desperate attempt to turn him into a kook. He appeared on two more shows in the past day, first The Today Show and then CNN.

In both cases he declined bowing to media intimidation regarding Obama’s mysterious nativity. Mysterious, only because Obama himself seems intent on keeping it that way.

On CNN, the interviewer, Suzanne Malveaux, tried desperately to come to the aid of their savior, Nativity Scene-in-Chief Obama.

To do so Malveaux put forth straw man arguments proving that Obama lived in Hawaii as a kid, presenting taped evidence of people who knew him. But Trump would have none of it. He rightly points out that whether he lived in Hawaii is not the question. The question is and remains – Why won’t Obama show his birth certificate? Why the secrecy? Why all the missing records, documents, and transcripts? Obama is, in fact, and by far and away, the most unscrutinized, undocumented President in modern American history, if not ever.

Earlier on the Today Show Trump said:

He spent $2 million in legal fees trying to get away from this issue, and if he weren’t lying, why wouldn’t he just solve it? I wish he would because if he doesn’t it’s one of the greatest scams in the history of politics and in history, period.

Donald Trump may not be my first, second, or even third choice for President, but it is certainly refreshing to finally see someone stand up to the media, and for America. In the new normal we have grown far too accustomed to politicians and others always having to preface what they say or think with idiotic disclaimers, fearful less the media or some pundit somewhere accuse him or her of this, that, or the other label that Liberals love to apply to anyone who disagrees with them.

Here’s Trump on the Today Show, where he also expresses other dissatisfactions, to put it mildly, that he has with the way Barack Obama is conducting matters of State.

And here’s Trump on CNN.

The fun continues…

Obama slush fund finds pockets of WaPo and CBS

We don’t call them the state-run media for nothing.

We ought to be shocked, but unfortunately less and less about the Obama Administration shocks us anymore. The meters blew a fuse a long time ago.

But of course, that is exactly what they are counting on. They are trying to wear us down, as in: Resistance is futile!

The Obama Administration is the most criminal, fraudulent, hypocritical, and mendacious administration in the history of America, but because the state-run media is in its pocket, too many Americans will never fathom its true duplicity and corruption.

(Daily Caller) — Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare’s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) — a $5 billion grant program that’s doling out cash to companies, states and labor unions in what the Obama administration considers an effort to pay for health insurance for early retirees. 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 just have to disclose that they are subsidiaries of the Obama Administration.”

The ERRP, which Republicans call a slush fund, provides taxpayer money to Obama administration-selected states, companies and labor unions with already-in-place early retiree health insurance programs, and aims to make certain that their employees who retire early still have health insurance coverage before they reach Medicare eligibility age. Almost $2 billion of the $5 billion fund, which was supposed to last until 2014, has already been distributed to corporations. New projections expect the funding to run out before the end of 2012, if not sooner.

New Obama halo sighting

The eagle-eyed Weasel Zipper found two new Glowbama halos cast by his disciples at AP and AFP. The last Obama halo was around March 14th.

Perhaps now that Obama’s base sees him as a warmonger, the state-run media thinks it’s important to remind B.O.’s disappointed flock and the world that Nobel Peace Prize winner-in-Chief Glowbama – who is involved in 3 wars – is still a pacifist and an angel.

Will the media ever blush with shame at their fawning obsession?

Nope.
