Geez, there can be no more accurate statement on the coverage of this story……
Geez, there can be no more accurate statement on the coverage of this story……
Are you tired of this twat yet?
A final chapter can be written on the saga of the lying bigoted rancher from Nevada…….
Anyone that has half a brain, well leaves out most of the ignorant Right, can finally say that the Bundy drama is done…….this man has proven to the world just what it is and what he is all about…….one, he is a liar and two he is a racist prick!
The lying part……Bundy has stood before the nation and told it what he is all about….that he denies the US claims and that his family and cattle have been using the land since the 1870′s…..and now the rest of the story……… Bundy’s family didn’t buy that land until 1948 and didn’t start grazing their cattle on it until 1954.
If that was not big enough to shut the mumbling multitudes up….there was his latest interview…….
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.
“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
Now we know what this coward is……….a freeloader…………..he is NO patriot and above all he is a screaming racist!
And then there is the little soldier boys of the the militias……..if they stand behind this guy any longer then I will employ a method of analysis used by the Right……Guilt by association………if they stand with this guy then they are NO better than him and are all racists……..
If you are reading this then I am still battling lawyers over my father’s estate…..I set this to be published at 1330 hrs….just in case…..
We are so proud of our ‘freedoms’ especially the freedom of press….maybe we should pay closer attention to what is happening or that ‘freedom’ could be lost…..
More total bullsh*t from the western press……and NO one cares…..if this was happening in say….Peoria it would be a different story….Palestinians for way too long have been treated like 2nd class citizens of the world…..while Israel is beamed around the world as some sort of idyllic democracy in the region……FAR from true…..
Commentary by Chuq……..
Today is my day to post rants…..some times I need to get some things off my brain to make room for the important stuff……
This question I ask of all my readers both Left and Right……has the “alternate” news organization began to be driving the news and the issues?
Jeez, I get it! You hate the prez…..or is it the Dems….or all liberals…..or NSA or whatever is the news of the day. It seems we have a scandal a day when we should have and address an issue a day. But what can you expect from a Congress that works about 3 months a year, next year it will be 126 days.
We are accomplishing NOTHING….shall I repeat that for the more slow readers……We are accomplishing NOTHING….all we are doing is making this country and its people flipping crazy with bullsh*t stories and scandals…..do not get me wrong…..I love it….gives people like me lots of fodder for posts……
The Middle Class is disappearing….slowly but slowly…..and Congress is doing NOTHING to prevent that from occurring……why?
An excellent question! Basically it is because that is not something that will win a primary for them……it does not fit into the slim category of a “scandal”…….in other words….NO one cares….at this point….please you Liberals do not nod in agreement…I am talking about you as much as I am talking to the base of the Tea Party/GOP…..for too long both parties have been blind to the plight of the middle class and now it is almost too late to save it……
To quote the song “Bad Boys”….whatcha gonna do?
I read daily and for hours about economics and politics…….and so far I have seen NOTHING from anyone that even appears to be a solution….as usual…..all talk…NO action. That is how we Americans address our failings….we talk and talk….and in the end there is NO solution…..maybe a small reform but the problem always remains…..
Please, if anyone sees a cure on the horizon…let me know for I missed it……
I have quietly waited to see if any of my conserv colleagues would have the nuts to write about one of their “super” scandals….Benghazi. I mean really……for a month or more we had moron after moron jumping on the situation that occurred in Libya as some sort of nefarious scheme by our prez and Sec of State……remember?
Think hard…it will come to you.
Since FOX, Breibart, Jones and the others have not seen it necessary to report on this situation …..I will do it for them……(you are welcome…you toads)…….
(Newser) – CBS’ 60 Minutes today backpedaled away from an attention-grabbing report on the Benghazi consulate attack that it aired two weeks ago, saying it had “learned of new information that undercuts the account” of its key source, a security officer who was protecting the US mission when it was attacked. Dylan Davies, using the pseudonym Morgan Jones, criticized the compound’s defenses, amidst an action-packed account in which he raced to the consulate, climbed a 12-foot-wall, and knocked an extremist out with the butt of his gun. He’s put out a book with the same story, published by Simon and Schuster—which is owned by CBS.
But when the FBI interviewed him, Davies said he’d sat out the attack, instead remaining at the villa where he lived, the New York Times revealed last night. That interview is “completely consistent” with the incident report Davies filed with Blue Mountain, the security contractor he worked for. That incident report was leaked to the Washington Post last week, but Davies called it a lie put out by the “big people” he was upsetting, and CBS stood by him. Now, though, the network appears to have taken down the video, and says it may yank the book as well.
Okay, here is a synopsis…..this prick LIED!
It is stuff like this that tells me that most of the Right ‘news’ sources are NOT creditable in any way…….I pity…and yes I said PITY….. anyone that is ignorant enough to turn to these self-promoting pricks for news or information…..
I recently wrote to a friend of this blog, a conserv, about the lack of creditability that I find in some of the Right wing news sources…..and this is just what I was referring to when I made my comment……sorry, most of them are as worthless as tits on a boar, as far as news goes……and I gladly utter the 4 most beautiful words in the English language……I TOLD YOU SO!
Closing Note: I check all the major ‘news’ outlets for the Right and not one has this story…..only CBS has the nuts to admit they were had by this con man…..
Just as I thought……the hacks that pretend to carry news would rather stick with a lie than admit they were wrong……a lie that drives their narrative and that narrative is everything for they have NO class or feel NO responsibility for predicating the lie….as long as the agenda does not suffer. These people are cowards and liars…period!
My readers know that I have little respect for the MSM, the corporate media……I think press conferences and interviews are worthless because all it is is a chance to echo talking points without answering questions….O’Donnell tore into the media recently…I could not agree more…….
Or do they?
If you spend enough time on the web then you will run into people that have all the answers and anyone that disagrees with them is a commie or a socialist or a fascist or mentally ill……in other words they are wrong in their beliefs or stands……we have all the terms but my favorite is “sheeple”….meaning people that follow blindly….and the scary part (actually it is more like pathetic)…………….. are the ones blindly following are the ones calling other sheeple…….how is that?
Can a mind be called “inquiring” if it is exposed to only one source? By one I mean the same sort of thinking…..like NewsMax and Hannerity or NPR and The Nation or Marx and Harrington…..if one does not study opposing ideas how can they presume to be free thinking or have an inquiring mind?
Then there are the “Think Tanks”………these organizations only research for the people and organizations that fund them….there are few independent think tanks……when one reads a paper presented by one of these then go find where their funding comes from and that way you will know if it is a true exercise in free thought………in short, think tanks serve only special interests….no matter which side of the political spectrum they fall….NOTHING inquiring about their assumptions…..these institutions are no more than propaganda arms of a political party….most are biased and their “academic” work is titled toward their benefactors, seldom without prejudice….
And then there are those that explain away any opposition as being solely biased, blaming their thought processes as some sort of mental illness. There is nothing inquiring about insults and name calling…that is a small mind working….as the old saying goes….”you are entitled to your opinion, but not to your own facts”……the truth is that thanks to the internet the days of “free and inquiring minds” is long dead…..replaced with bullies and insulting toads. Sadly, there seems to be no end to the insanity……and sadly this could be the end of inquiring minds.
In conclusion let me quote the words of one of our Founding Fathers, James Madison……..”Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives”……….
In this case I am talking about the coverage of the Arab Spring, most namely Libya and Syria. With that said how is the media doing in their reporting of the situations in the Middle East and North Africa?
Since the first weeks of the Libyan conflict, independent journalists clearly showed that facts in Libya were in neat contrast with what the big news agencies reported. While the Western media turned the spotlight on ‘Ghadaffi’s crimes’, NATO was carrying out a 24 hour non-stop bombing campaign on Libyan soil with complete media silence.
Likewise in Syria, mainstream media coverage persistently points to ‘Assad’s brutal regime’, whilst we don’t hear about the armed groups scattered all over Syria. And the recent media speculation that Damascus may use chemical or biological weapons inside Syria only adds up to the world’s mounting pressure on the Syrian government.
The state of truth in mainstream media coverage is at unprecedented danger. There has been a steady reality reversal accomplished by press agencies in the West and across the Arab world.
In an interview conducted by the New York Times with independent journalist Lizzie Phelan (31st January 2012) who reported from the Libyan war, Phelan explicitly stated that almost everything reported by the mainstream media has been proved wrong, listing a few facts and figures:
- The rebellion WAS indeed armed from the very first day of the uprising (this was confirmed in Amnesty’s in-depth report from late last year) – not a peaceful movement
- The rebels WERE working hand in glove with Western intelligence agencies to facilitate a NATO blitzkrieg
- The NTC ARE disunited and incapable of governing the country.
- The rebels DO have a racist, even genocidal, policy towards sub-Saharan African migrants and the third of the Libyan population that is dark skinned
The MSM as usual is telling the American people and others just what they want to hear. About the only Western reporter that I feel is doing his part to make it real…is Richard Engel…..he was raised in Egypt so he speaks Arabic fluently and does not need to depend on an interpreter to ask the question and translate the answers…..
As usual, all is not as it seems and thanx to the MSM will probably NEVER will be.
