ABC Vets Insist Obama Not on Left, Blocking ObamaCare Reminds Roberts of ‘First Step Toward the Civil War’

From NewsBusters.org:

On ABC’s This Week, when retired ABC newsman Sam Donaldson recommended that President Barack Obama nominate, to replace Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, someone who “is going to stand up for the principles – on the left, if you will – that he believes in,” Cokie Roberts jumped in: “I’m not so sure he is so far to the left.” Donaldson agreed: “Well, I’m not sure either.”

Minutes later, Roberts contended the efforts of state attorneys general, to get a federal court to rule unconstitutional ObamaCare’s requirement every citizen get health insurance, reminded her of the “nullification” which led to the Civil War:

What the hell are these people talking about? And they get paid for this? I’ll tell you I have read much more insightful stuff on Gather and heard more intelligent conversation on BlogTalk Radio, than what I get from the Lame Stream Media.

How the Media is attacking and is being attacked

I am going to compile stories from NewsBusters.org about the recent attacks to and from the media. I know, my readers, again, I have not been blogging for a while; I’m trying to get us set up here on the mountain for the winter. Ya know hauling food, ect… Sorry. I am in Chipmunk/Squirrel mode. He, He, He. Soooo let’s begin.

From Newsbusters;

NBC’s Brian Williams allocated a few seconds Thursday night to how a new Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey discovered the percent of Americans who, in his words, “believe there’s solid evidence of global warming…has dropped off significantly” while “the number of people who say they don’t believe in climate change at all has doubled in that time.” (If it’s a scientific issue, what does “belief” have to do with it?)

But instead of crediting Americans for recognizing the media-fueled case global warming is a threat has been undermined by reality since global temperatures have not risen an iota since 1998, Williams attributed the change to how “in a down economy, people are less sensitive to the environment.”

Serious Dumb Ass commentator. Let’ move on to the next one.

Just when you thought the White House couldn’t possibly do anything to make their bizarre feud with the Fox News Channel an even larger spectacle – the administration manages to take it to another level. On the Oct. 22 broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” host Bret Baier revealed a White House pool announcement was offering Kenneth Feinberg, the “Special Master for Compensation,” better known as the White House “pay czar” for interviews – all except for one network – Fox News.

Serious Dumb Ass White House. And then there is this.

Is there no depth MSNBC’s Chris Matthews won’t sink to?
Judging from a truly disgraceful comment he made on Thursday’s “Hardball,” the answer has got to be a resounding “NO!
MATTHEWS: That’s not fair. The group in this country that most resembles the Taliban, ironically, is the religious right.

I show you, my readers, then let you decide.:)

NYT Tries to Deflect Charges of Bias, Announces ‘Opinion Media’ Editor

Now this is interesting.

From Newsbusters;

The New York Times announced today that it would appoint an editor to monitor ‘opinion media’. In an attempt to respond to criticism that it has been too slow to pick up on stories first reported by conservative blogs and talk show hosts, the Times acknowledged poor coverage, but denied a political agenda.

The self-proclaimed ‘paper of record’ was extremely slow in picking up on two recent stories. The first, the ‘trutherism’ of former White House Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, was initially reported by Pajamas Media, and later by Glenn Beck on his Fox News talk show. The Times did not cover the story until after Jones had resigned.

So, how many conservative blogs are they monitoring as well. Not to mention the Conservative Talk Radio Shows on the internet like; The Uncooperative Radio Show. And now the Old Grey Lady, the bastion of all that is the “Liberal, Commie” media, will be using us as their information source. This is just Fabulous! Keep up the pressure people, it’s working. We will get our country back, even if it takes us one inch at a time.

Gun Owners Worried Over Limbaugh Stance

Now I know the Left is going nu-nu bananas over this one. Good, read first and then listen.

From Newsmax:

Rush Limbaugh’s new pet project — fighting animal cruelty for the Humane Society of the United States — is riling sportsmen from coast to coast, prompting fears that the talkster typically supportive of gun rights is aiding a group they say has a secret agenda to end all hunting in America.

Almost 30 groups representing millions of hunters and sportsmen are demanding that the conservative radio commentator end his collaboration with the Humane Society and stop “helping them to mainstream their image in the minds of reasonable people.”

First off, this is not paranoia, guns owners of all types are constantly under attack by the commie left. So we/I as a gun toten momma have to always be on guard. Ha sometimes with my gun, ha he, he. Second, conservatives do not think with their hearts, but with their minds. And as such everything in in question, even other conservatives. It’s about whats right, not how popular the issue is or the person behind the issue.

Mr. Limbaugh did not answer requests for comment and has had little to say about his tacit endorsement of the Humane Society. During an interview on Fox News last week, Greta Van Susteren asked him, “Who do you admire and why?”

As Mr. Limbaugh paused, citing “brain freeze,” this exchange occurred:

“You like the Humane Society,” Mrs. Van Susteren said.

“Who?” Mr. Limbaugh asked.

“The Humane Society.”

Laughing, the radio host, who spends three hours a day talking politics, said, “Well, now, you’re getting into politics,” and quickly moved off the topic.

Oh come on now, the man eats, breeeaths and sleeeeps, “politics”. How lame an answer was that. I listen to him all the time but missed this interview and his response to the issue on his radio show; which I’m sure he addressed. I just wanted to point out that just because conservatives don’t always agree with other conservatives, it means “we are imploding”. No, it means we are “thinking”. I only hope Rush starts thinking about what this organization stands for. I mean he has “people” to research this doesn’t he. He’s rich enough to have “people” doesn’t he?

Savage sues Napolitano for targeting vets

From WND:

Radio talk show host Michael Savage has teamed up with the Thomas More Law Center of Ann Arbor, Mich., to file a lawsuit against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

“It is a civil rights action brought under the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution, challenging the policy, practice, and custom of the United States Government that targets for disfavored treatment those individuals and groups that are considered to be ‘rightwing extremists,'” the complaint announced today said.

Become part of WND’s re-declaration of our founders’ intent to be an independent nation

The federal agency recently targeted those individuals in its report called “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

Good for him. It must be nice to have money to hire lawyers. I’d love to have one on retainer, just because. he he. But seriously Folks, read the rest of the story because the government is talking about you. Not terrorist, not criminals, you. The God fearing, constitutional loving, gun toten, family oriented, average person. And if you think I’m overreacting read this:

According to the federal government, members of the suspect group of people include those who:

* Oppose restrictions on firearms

* Oppose lax immigration

* Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship and the expansion of social programs

* Oppose continuation of free trade agreements

* Oppose same-sex marriage

* Have paranoia of foreign regimes

* Fear Communist regimes

* Oppose one world government

* Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world

* Are upset with the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India

Is this you????? Oh and google the report in the article and read it for yourself, the title is above.:)

Broadcasting pioneer Paul Harvey dies at age 90

I was wondering when we would loose him. I loved listening to the “Rest of the Story”.

From USA Today:

CHICAGO — Paul Harvey, the news commentator and talk-radio pioneer whose staccato style made him one of the nation’s most familiar voices, died Saturday in Arizona, according to ABC Radio Networks. He was 90.

Harvey died surrounded by family at a hospital in Phoenix, where he had a winter home, said Louis Adams, a spokesman for ABC Radio Networks, where Harvey worked for more than 50 years. No cause of death was immediately available.

Harvey had been forced off the air for several months in 2001 because of a virus that weakened a vocal cord. But he returned to work in Chicago and was still active as he passed his 90th birthday. His death comes less than a year after that of his wife and longtime producer, Lynne.

It will be interesting to see who ABC Radio hires to replace him. I wonder if they will discontinue the program.

Savage goes on offense in ‘Fairness Doctrine’ battle

From WND:

Talk radio icon Michael Savage is joining forces with a Michigan-based civil rights advocacy organization to protect free speech by fighting the return of the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.”

“A regulation of speech motivated by nothing more than a desire to silence political opposition on controversial issues of public interest is the purest example of a law abridging the freedom of speech,” said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center.

“Such action is the hallmark of totalitarian governments, not a free society,” he said.

The Fairness Doctrine was abandoned in 1987, but leading Democrats increasingly have called for its return.

Now before everyone “jumps” on his case about “jumping the gun” on this issue, ya have to step back and ask yourself,”do you trust the elected cockroaches?”
