In the wake of the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks quickly moved to exploit the tragedy to push for more gun control legislation while mostly ignoring solutions that respect gun owners’ Second Amendment rights. . . . Stories advocating more gun control outnumbered stories opposing gun control by 99 to 12, or a ratio of 8 to 1.
Now that the 2012 presidential election is over and Barack Obama has been safely reelected, the journalists at ABC’s Good Morning America woke up to the fact that the President has “refused” to provide details the terrorist attack in Libya and that the administration “didn’t want to talk about it.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Fill-in host Elizabeth Vargas blithely announced, “In the meantime, the Libya issue has been overhanging this election. Allegations of a, quote, massive cover-up, by Senator John McCain about this administration’s, really, refusal to really put to rest this issue before voting day.” Martha Raddatz, who moderated the vice presidential debate, agreed, saying, “They didn’t want to talk about it. Everybody tried to pin them down on that. They did not want to talk about it.” “Everybody” tried to pin them down on Libya?
Yeah, they tried so hard to pin him down like Michael Moore tried to stop eating sides of beef. The fact is the media ignored this story, because they knew it would hurt Obama’s chances at re-election.
“I’m very disappointed in the ruling. I think the chief justice had to contort logic and reason to come up with this ruling,” he said. “So one man decided against the dissenting opinion, against what I, you know, thought were his — his principles and judicial jurisprudence, he decided to leave this up to the American people. So now the stakes of this election could not be higher.”
…Ryan said this morning that he believes that a House vote to repeal President Obama’s health care reform law will take place later this month
I like the prospect of Paul Ryan as the VP more every day. He is a bright guy who has the ability to convey the Conservative message like few others.
Earlier, I posted the photo of the back of George Zimmerman’s head. The picture shows the wounds, still bleeding. I asked how the media would spin this, I should have taken bets on how long it would take a Lefty to scream photoshop
Read this. It’s about the ABC photo showing Zimmerman’s wounds.
I have many photoshop brush sets and one of them contains brushes which follow the precise pattern of Mr Zimmerman’s wounds. If these photos and Mr Zimmerman’s word are your evidence for the idea that “there likely was a physical altercation” before Zimmerman shot an unarmed 17 year old in the chest at point blank range I suggest you find more and better evidence. I think both sets were photoshopped by two different individuals neither of whom is particularly skilled. One forgets the blood, the other forgets to photoshop the wound or the the bruising. We have an excellent mug shout of Zimmermen when he was arrested. There is no evidence of a recently broken nose either. That said, Zimmerman instigated the violence, he was the aggressor. We have Martin’s voice screaming for help and then silenced by the gun shot just before Zimmerman shot him. It’s only ‘self defense’ no one allows Trayvon Martin that right.
Oh the Leftist sheep. They want so badly for this to play out a certain way, and they will delude themselves to the point of denying reality.
Appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to shill for his latest book, Bill Maher told George Stephanopoulos he’s rooting for Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination. “At least he eats with a knife and fork. He is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes.”
What do you call a self-proclaimed funny man that is not funny? YEP!
The Democratic National Committee just blasted out a greatest-hits reel from Huntsman’s Sunday show appearance, wherein the former Utah governor criticized Rick Perry for being anti-science, Michele Bachmann for being unserious about the economy and Mitt Romney for being a flip-flopper.
The DNC subject line: “Don’t take our word for it …” A sample of the offerings:
JON HUNTSMAN ON HIS REPUBLICAN RIVALS
Huntsman Said The Rest Of The GOP Field Had “Zero Substance” And Were “Too Far To The Right.” Huntsman on ABC’s This Week: “We have people on the Republican side too far to the right. We have zero substance. We have no good ideas that are being circulated or talking about that allow the country to get back on its feet economically so we begin creating jobs.” [ABC News – This Week, 8/21/11]
Huntsman Said He Would Not Trust His Opponents With The Economy Because They Would Have Allowed The Country To Default. When asked by Jake Tapper, “Would you trust a President Bachmann to do the right thing with the economy?” Huntsman replied, “I wouldn’t necessarily trust any of my opponents who are on the recent debate stage with me when every single one of them would have allowed this country to default.” [ABC News – This Week, 8/21/11]
Huntsman Said The Republican Party Has “A Serious Problem” In Becoming “The Anti-Science Party.” On ABC’s This Week, Huntsman said: “I think there’s a serious problem. The minute the Republican Party becomes the party, the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. We lose a whole lot of people, who would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012 when we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, we take a position that basically runs counter to what 100 to 900 climate scientists have said with what the national academy of science has said. What is causing climate change and man’s contribution to it. We find ourselves on the wrong side of science and therefore in a losing position.” [ABC News – This Week, 8/21/11]
Huntsman Said “We’d Be Here All Afternoon” To Talk About Romney’s Flip-Flops. On ABC’s This Week, Huntsman said, “If we talk about inconsistencies and change on various issues, we’d be here all afternoon.” [ABC News – This Week, 8/21/11]
No substance? This from the clown who has no economic plan yet?I guess Hunstman must be from the Charlie (stab your fellow Republicans in the back if it is politically advantageous) Crist wing of the GOP!
Via Maggie, who has a short clip of Cokie Roberts comments of explaining that our darned Constitution got in the way. There is a longer clip embedded below. George Will makes the point that this was, in part a political decision, and that S&P has serious credibility issues itself! Melody Hobson, ABC’s financial contributor agrees with Will on that point
Odd isn’t it? The Left in America proudly drape many of their lurches towards Communism as being “for the children”. And the video shows children, sweet, innocent children starving, caked in filth, begging for even a scrap of food. This, my friends is where Marxism, and all its bastards Isms, Stalinism, Maoism, Trotskyism, Communism, Leninism, Socialism lead.
Footage shot inside North Korea and obtained by the ABC has revealed the extent of chronic food shortages and malnutrition inside the secretive state.
The video is some of the most revealing footage ever smuggled out of the impoverished North Korean state.
Shot over several months by an undercover North Korean journalist, the harrowing footage shows images of filthy, homeless and orphaned children begging for food and soldiers demanding bribes.
The footage also shows North Koreans labouring on a private railway track for the dictator’s son and heir near the capital Pyongyang.
Strolling up to the site supervisor, the man with the hidden camera asks what is going on.
“This rail line is a present from Kim Jong-il to comrade Kim Jong-un,” he is told.
The well-fed Kim Jong-un could soon be ruling over a nation of starving, impoverished serfs.
The video shows young children caked in filth begging in markets, pleading for scraps from compatriots who have nothing to give.
“I am eight,” says one boy. “My father died and my mother left me. I sleep outdoors.”
Many of the children are orphans; their parents victims of starvation or the gulag.
But markets do exist – private markets that stock bags of rice, pork, and corn. The state no longer has any rations to hand out.
But the state wants its share of this embryonic capitalism.
In the footage, a party official is demanding a stallholder make a donation of rice to the army.
“My business is not good,” complains the stallholder.
“Shut up,” replies the official. “Don’t offer excuses.”
It is clear that the all-powerful army – once quarantined from food shortages and famine – is starting to go hungry.
“Everybody is weak,” says one young North Korean soldier. “Within my troop of 100 comrades, half of them are malnourished,” he said.
Jiro Ishimaru is the man who trained the undercover reporter to use the hidden camera.
“This footage is important because it shows that Kim Jong-il’s regime is growing weak,” he said.
“It used to put the military first, but now it can’t even supply food to its soldiers. Rice is being sold in markets but they are starving. This is the most significant thing in this video.”
Meanwhile, in South Korea, where the people have freedoms, there are no such horrific scenes of suffering, or starvation are there. Yet, the Left still cries out for “Social Justice” which is nothing more than a nice name for Marxism. If the Left were right, it would be South Korea that was in despair, while North Korea, a Communist nation that has been praised by useful idiots like Jimmy Carter and Ted Turner, would be flourishing.
The Left ignores the numerous historic examples of the sheer Hell that Communism visits upon people unfortunate enough to live under its boot. They never admit the insanity of embracing the demented teachings of Marx. At most, they will say that the problem with Communism, is that it has just “never been done correctly”. To embrace such hogwash is not only intellectually bankrupt, it is the ultimate form of moral retardation.
George Will is a bright guy, and he is often right, no doubt. But,he smacks of elitism at times, and frankly, this view, I think, is more about his snobby nature, than wisdom. Yes, the iamge of Palin right now among many would prevent her winning possibly. BUT, 2012 is a ways off, things can change.
