President Obama and Senator Franken’s policies have failed. The result is a humanitarian crisis in Iraq, leaving the region unstable and the world less safe.

Media BiASS:

Lois Lerner’s Hard Drive Destroyed; Big Three Evening Newscasts Ignore

 

The Big Three broadcast networks on June 19 all ignored news of how Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive was destroyed by the IRS, even as they had time for Harrison Ford’s broken leg (NBC), a new technology for police car chases (ABC), and comedian Tracy Morgan’s car accident (CBS).

 

 

Networks Censor Coverage of Lois Lerner’s Destroyed Hard Drive, Cover Car Chase on Golf Course, Kate Gosselin Instead

 

Thursday morning, the three networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to cover the news from the previous night that the hard drive from the computer belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner was lost and destroyed. This follows the news that emails from Lerner and six other officials that were being investigated for the IRS’ pointed targeting of conservative non-profits were lost.

 

 

Poll Shows Public Confidence in News Media Sinking to Record Low

 

In its annual survey of the public’s faith in 17 key institutions, TV news has fallen to a new low, with only the U.S. Congress ranking below it in terms of public esteem. Just 18 percent of U.S. adults say they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news, down from 30 percent in 2004. In contrast, Gallup found much higher levels of public confidence in institutions that are often criticized by the press: the military (74%), small business (62%), the police (53%), and the church or organized religion (45%).

 

 

NBC’s Guthrie Grills John Kerry: Aren’t ‘Chickens Coming Home to Roost’ in Iraq After Obama’s Inaction?

 

In a remarkably tough interview with Secretary of State John Kerry aired on Thursday’s NBCToday, co-host Savannah Guthrie interrogated the nation’s top diplomat on the Obama administration’s failure to prevent terrorists from invading Iraq: “It seems like the U.S. was totally caught off guard by this….did you act too slowly? I mean, [Iraqi Prime Minister] Maliki was asking for help with air strikes in the last few weeks as this was coming, as ISIS was coming toward this part of Iraq. Why didn’t we act then?” Later in the exchange, Guthrie pressed: “What’s happening now in Iraq is directly related to the situation in Syria. Did the U.S. – did the President miss the moment, make a huge mistake by not trying to turn the tide in Syria then and what’s happening in Iraq now is just the chickens coming home to roost?”

 

 

Blackout: 400 Days Since ABC’s ‘Nightline’ Covered IRS Scandal

 

As of June 19, 2014, it’s been 400 days since Nightline, the once-serious news program, has covered the growing scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of Tea Party organizations. This includes the new revelation that the IRS has “lost” former director Lois Lerner’s e-mails and the hard drives have been destroyed. In fact, Lerner’s name has never been uttered on Nightline. What have these ABC journalists been covering instead? On June 18, Dan Abrams promoted a story on “real male strippers.” He enthused, “They’re revealing more than just their muscles…We go behind close doors as they expose their dirty secrets.”

 

 

All Three Networks Skip Possible 2016 Dem Candidate’s ‘Gaydar’ Gaffe

 

All three networks on Wednesday morning skipped a “gaydar” gaffe by a possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate. Only CBS This Morning covered former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer’s comments, but highlighted only an attack on Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein.

 

 

NBC Hails Redskins Trademark Being Revoked As ‘A Victory for Native Americans’

 

At the top of Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams seized on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office revoking the trademark of the Washington Redskins as part of the liberal crusade to force the team to change it’s name: “Taking a hit. The feds go after the Redskins where it hurts the most, money from team merchandise, as the controversy over the team’s name takes a surprise turn.” Introducing the later report, Williams proclaimed: “The pressure just increased on the Washington Redskins to change their team name. Starting with the fact that they may no longer have the exclusive use of their own name in the lucrative business of NFL merchandise.” Correspondent Kristen Welker touted the government abuse of power as “A victory for Native Americans who say the name should go, calling it just as racist as the ‘N’ word.”

 

Gun Stuff…..Facebook Stuff and Stuff…

“No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defence of the state…. Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen.” –Josiah Quincy, Jr., Thoughts on Standing Armies, 1774

The AR-15: The gun liberals love to hate
By: David A. Keene

Nearly half of AR owners are veterans, law enforcement officers, or both. It is a configuration they are familiar with and enjoy shooting. My daughter, for example, served two tours in Iraq, one in Afghanistan, and only owns one gun — an AR. | READ MORE »

Distracted? Another Obama Admin Diversion?

Comment found here!! On Piers Morgan….Covers it well!

Leave this insulting, sneering snot alone and stop giving him the attention he crys for like a two year old !

Ignore him !  Don’t even mention his name.  His insults and sneers are only to gain attention and prop up his failing talk show on a failing network.

Allow him to sink back into the morass of nothingness he had before he found a way to get attention.  Let him interview a mirror.  PLEASE ! !

Jed Clampett doing four things Obama despises; shooting a gun; providing food for his family without government help, finding oil in the process and becoming a millionaire! Probably on the DHS domestic terrorist list.

Gun Control: WWJD?

As the gun control debate rages in America following the abominable events in Newtown, eventually, perhaps inevitably, the media will ask itself, “What would Jesus do?”

They’ve done it for years as it relates to wealth redistribution and Obamacare. Obama gave an entire speech about taxes in which he used Jesus for his justification. I’d wager that the tactic is designed to hit God fearing southerners where, in keeping with the caricature that the media has created of them, they are most likely to submit without question and accept the answer given to them by their betters.

Of course this vastly underestimates the target, but putting that aside, is there any truth to the idea that Jesus would deplore a concealed carry license or a mom defending her children from an intruder? After all, Jesus has some pretty radically pacifist quotes that need only be lifted from the Bible without context to sound convincing. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

CLASSROOM SOCIALISM

Is this man truly a genius?
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an “A”…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a “B”. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride
too so they studied little. The second test average was a “D”! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the new average was an “F”.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

Human nature will always cause socialism’s style of government to fail because the world has producers and non-producers (makers and takers).

It could not be any simpler than that.

(Please pass this on)

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Liar!!!

Ace of Spades points this pesky little fact out, from The Free Beacon:

“I was there, I voted against them,” Biden continued. “I said, no, we can’t afford that.”

Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized “the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.”

And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq, according to the Washington Post.

Holy crap!! A lying politician!!

Half Boy; Half Man

Posted before…and posting again…

1/2 boy 1/2 man

The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father’s, but he has never collected unemployment either.

He’s a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and a 155mm howitzer.

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk. He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional.

He can march until he is told to stop, or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. He is self-sufficient.

He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts.

If you’re thirsty, he’ll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food. He’ll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands.

He can save your life – or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay, and still find ironic humor in it all.

He has seen more suffering and death than he should have in his short lifetime.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to’ square-away’ those around him who haven’t bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.

Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except
Our friendship and understanding.

Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood.

And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.

As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot. . …

A short lull, a little shade and a picture of loved ones in their helmets.

Prayer wheel for our military…. Please don’t break it Please send this on after a short prayer.

Prayer Wheel

‘Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.

Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.’

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan , sailors on ships, and airmen in the air, and for those in Iraq , Afghanistan and all foreign countries.

There is nothing attached….

This can be very powerful..

Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine, or Airman, prayer is the very best one.

Pass it on to everyone and pray.
