The mainstream media has failed to take their duty to report the news seriously. Political corruption has so infected today’s reporters that they no longer report the news but manipulate and twist it, according to their agenda, instead of reporting it. By not reporting a vast upwelling of American anger they hope to avoid the just criticism of Obama who was, and remains, the media’s candidate. Elite media types hate to get an “I told you so” from the American People and I hope their partisan handling of this story does not lead to real trouble in the end. With more than 700 protests across the country the people want to be heard and the media’s attempts to stifle this outcry will doubtless face ratings repercussions.
Reporters should report the news not take a jaundiced democrat eye toward news that’s either critical of the democrats or favorable to the conservatives. With so many protests across the length and breadth of America and with Paid Democrat Operatives from ACORN and MOVE ON converging on the demonstrations there is the possibility that trouble will ensue: BUT NONE DID. Failure to cover these events is both an act of unpardonable political censorship by what is supposed to be a “free press” and very poor news judgment. Like many liberals the press is quick to expound on its “rights” at great length but they seem to be in denial about their “responsibilities” to report objectively. News organizations who offer biased reports of this phenomenon, or who refuse to cover the story because of their open affection for democrats and socialists, should lose the privilege of reporting the news because they’ve failed their responsibility to report the truth.
More worrisome still are the actions of the Department of Homeland Security who seems to regard all conservatives, Christians, veterans and some republicans, as potential terrorists. The Department of Homeland Security sees these Tea Parties as a threat and is said to be infiltrating the ranks of law abiding Americans who happen to be conservative or who are aghast at out of control government spending. If this is not a blatant attempt to intimidate the electorate than I don’t know what is. The Obama administration has a heart that only Joseph Gobbles and Heinrich Himmler could fully love and appreciate. This is the United States of American and we don’t use police powers to intimidate free political speech or the right to assemble. That’s the sort of thing we expect from Stalin’s Russia, Chaves in Venezuela and the Keystone Cops instead of DHS.
It’s a sure bet that Pelosi’s Politburo would be fully in agreement that all these fired up conservatives are a threat to the Democrat Party, (and the glorious new socialist utopia they plan for us,) but in no way is it a legitimate threat to the United States of America. I call on President Obama; who is ultimately responsible for this un-American activity, to fire the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, and all her senior deputies because any decent American knew the report was morally wrong. This is very much over the line and if Homeland Security is to be used to attack conservatives while Obama bows to Arab Dictators, and ignores Islamic terror, than it either DHS needs to be disbanded or its leadership fired and replaced by people who target real terrorists not those who disagree with Obama and his thugs. It is un-American and forbidden to criminalize the political opposition in this nation and stunts like this and the revival of the “fairness doctrine” must receive the highest possible sanctions if we’re to remain a free people.
I guess it was just a matter of time before the traditional paranoia of a Democrat President led to the horrific damage that Obama just did to our intelligence agencies in general and the CIA in particular. Bill Clinton completely disempowered the CIA because its director wouldn’t comply with his political whims and Jimmy Carter gutted all human intelligence capabilities over urban myths and his belief that satellites can tell us everything the enemy is up to including their intentions. (It didn’t turn out that way!) It’s one thing to see the Obama Media completely fail to live up to their responsibilities, it’s another to see Obama fail to punish a gross abuse of government police power that effectively criminalizes anyone who disagrees with him: but it’s another to see him gouge out our very eyes in a terribly dangerous world. Barak Husain Obama has laid out for our terrorist’s enemies, whom he calls criminals instead of terrorists, all our best techniques that George Bush used to keep our nation safe after September 11th. It’s as if the Obama people are inviting more terrorist attacks and giving the terrorists free tutoring on how to make sure they succeed!
It has been tough going for Obama lately and the Tea Parties must have been something of an annoyance: so maybe our new president needs another crisis to place us fully into European Socialism. It seems enigmatic to observe Obama’s love and need for European Approval when the president of FRANCE just called Barak Obama essentially weak and stupid. (It astounds me to see France call anyone weak and stupid but it astounds me even more to agree with France!) It brings to mind tender memories of how former chancellor Gerhardt Schroder of Germany used to slap around Jimmy Carter and lecture the incompetent peanut farmer about how to conduct foreign policy 101. Jimmy Carter and CIA Director Stansfield Turner fired our entire human intelligence network and the stupidity of that act resounds and reverberates across the nation to this day. Perhaps Obama doesn’t want to be outdone by Carter because the stupidity of what this incompetent, ideological, socialist president has done will have a very real cost paid in American blood and the forfeiture of our way of life for countless future generations. This is so incomprehensible an error and so unforgivable a violation of a presidents oath of office that a real congress would go to impeachment hearing immediately but Pelosi’s Politburo will doubtless name a national park after Barak, spend a few more trillions, socialize our medical care and enjoy their weekend. It’s Just another day at the Oval Office in this the first year of Barak the Beneficent.
Consider this article from the Politico at the following URL: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21338.html
If you follow the above link you can read PDF’s of the Memo’s Obama gave to our enemies.
White House senior adviser David Axelrod says President Barack Obama spent about a month pondering whether to release Bush-era memos about CIA interrogation techniques, and considered it “a weighty decision.”“He thought very long and hard about it, consulted widely, because there were two principles at stake,” Axelrod said . “One is … the sanctity of covert operations … and keeping faith with the people who do them, and the impact on national security, on the one hand. And the other was the law and his belief in transparency.”
The president consulted officials from the Justice Department, the CIA, the director of National Intelligence and the Homeland Security Department, according to his adviser.
“It was a weighty decision,” Axelrod said. “As with so many issues, there are competing points of view that flow from very genuine interests and concerns that are to be respected. And then the president has to synthesize all of it and make a decision that’s in the broad national interest. He’s been thinking about this for four weeks, really.”
A former top official in the administration of President George W. Bush called the publication of the memos “unbelievable.”
“It’s damaging because these are techniques that work, and by Obama’s action today, we are telling the terrorists what they are,” the official said. “We have laid it all out for our enemies. This is totally unnecessary. … Publicizing the techniques does grave damage to our national security by ensuring they can never be used again — even in a ticking-time- bomb scenario where thousands or even millions of American lives are at stake.”
“I don’t believe Obama would intentionally endanger the nation, so it must be that he thinks either 1. the previous administration, including the CIA professionals who have defended this program, is lying about its importance and effectiveness, or 2. he believes we are no longer really at war and no longer face the kind of grave threat to our national security this program has protected against.”
Obama did not act on an arbitrary timeline. There was a deadline in a court case with the ACLU on Thursday. It had been extended, but the ACLU was not going to agree to another.
