Today as I always do, I sat thru the Sunday programs on the various networks! I do this so I can at least try to get many points of view before I go off on one of my tirades as to the near collapse of this once great country. Before everyone gets themselves into a hissy over that statement consider the fact that we now have the thought police out there telling the mass media and in turn you what is and isn't news. In other words, Control of the Media! Control of the message!
Please note here. I watched both of the programs I am going to cite here and the quotes I copied from an Associated Press story by Ann Sanner. In other words, I have proven statements, something our lying politicians would not know anything about!
President Barack Obama's chief of staff, said, "It is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective." Emanuel appeared on CNN's "State of the Union"
Appearing on ABC's "This Week," senior Obama adviser David Axelrod said Fox News shouldn't be treated as a news organization. "And the bigger thing is that other news organizations, like yours, ought not to treat them that way, and we're not going to treat them that way," he said.
As I said, I watched both of these programs, heard exactly what was said , and came away with the following impressions.
1: This administration is afraid of Fox News! Why? Because they do not deliver the message as demanded by the puppet masters in the White House? Because they dare question bad policy? Because when they do "go after someone or something", they use the person's own words or facts to support their contention?
2: The White House, for all practical purpose gave the networks their marching orders. Vilify Fox News! They are not your equals! It is impartive you, the real news networks must use any resource possible to overwhelm the public with the message we want to get out! We are more then happy to ignore the lies and lack of facts as long as you can in any way discredit that orginization.
3: This administration will at all costs use the methods as used by most dictators around the world. And why not? One of his advisors admires how Chavez controls the media in Venezuaela! Should work here. Just make sure you control the message!
4: What has happened to a "Free Press"?! How is it that the so called Watch Dogs of Freedom, a Free Press, are so willing to put out shameless lies and distortions of fact? What happened to the Cronkites and the Murrows of this once great industry.
5: What does this say about a country that is willing to throw away one of their most precious rights, The Freedom of Speech and the Press and allow this to happen?
I took these appearances today as a call from the administration to force feed the American people the worst of leftist propoganda. I believe, now more then ever that we do not only have a co-opted media, but are in fact on a forced march to Socialism or worse.
There is a common thread to this story as with most things that are involved with a leftist and/or dictatorship way of doing things! Control of the media! Overwhelm the people’s senses with Lies, Lies and more Lies! The fact that a corrupt administration would use the Mainstream Media for this purpose is just a logical extension of the above! What amazes me is that anyone would be shocked by this or any other tact taken not only by this administration, but also all the other misleading hacks in office in either party. They all do the same thing to some level! The only difference now is that they are not afraid or ashamed to openly insult the electorate as we have let them do that for way to many years!
I do believe with all my heart their is an ultra left radical element now running the country. It is there, in their own words and actions. And one other point. the Press! History teaches that in every country that had a compliant press, the government turned against that same press once they had taken complete control. This is fact! It's bad enough we ourselves did not self police our politicians, but the press has almost completely abrogated their responsiblities
The truth will win over the BIG LIE if presented to the people and as long as the people are paying attention as they should be with their responsibilities as voters! It is up to the people and a non co-opted media to keep this administration from it's leftward march. And that is my main point! Say what you want about the guys at Fox, Rush , Beck ,or O'Reilly, but there is one clear fact. When they make a point, they back it with facts! So far, I have not seen the administration able to punch a hole into any thing the folks at Fox have reported on and/or exposed. All they have been able to do is smear the messenger, a classic radical tactic!
Yesterday. I mentioned the main thrust of our efforts have to be aimed at our elected officials, and I still believe that. However, it must be everyone's job to educate themselves as to not only what is going on as to this radical march to the hard left, but also we maybe have to reach back and re-educate ourselves on this country's basic ideals and principles! What is going on now is a complete betrayal of everything our founding fathers stood for. If we let it continue, shame on us all!
