Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico.

Ah the impeccable scruples of the left…

Sure! I’d be glad to go onto YOUR network so that I could sell some of MY books!! Then, after you’ve treated me fairly, I’ll go on a “friendly” network and trash YOUR network so I don’t look so bad to all the other “scrupulous” lefties out there that are just like me.

Class act all the way, Axe.

/sarcasm off

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called Democratic political adviser David Axelrod “two-faced” for using O’Reilly’s show to sell his new book, then insulting Fox News Channel soon afterward.

In O’Reilly’s opening segment on Monday’s “O’Reilly Factor,”  he took on politicians, pundits and left-of-center media who trash Fox News. He said the motivation is simple: Fox News is a threat because it has become the top-rated source of cable news and sets the political agenda.

Knowing that Fox will bring in the most viewers, Axelrod, who has worked for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, asked O’Reilly to give him the first cable interview about his new book, “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” O’Reilly said.

“I told him, sure. We would have a lively, respectful discussion, which we did on February 9th,” O’Reilly said. “Then, to show his gratitude, Axelrod begins trashing Fox News, saying we are not a real news organization.  That was a mistake.”

Seems good old Axe couldn’t help himself when he left Fox News’ HQ and went over to ABC’s Sunday morning talk show, “This Week.” He just HAD to bash Fox, I mean he’d went to the “enemy camp;” he’d crossed over to the other side; he had literally given credence to the enemy by his very presence on their Network, and he HAD to fix that.

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that the Fox News Channel is “not really a news station” and that much of the programming is “not really news.”

“I’m not concerned,” Axelrod said on ABC’s “This Week” when George Stephanopoulos asked about the back-and-forth between the White House and Fox News.

“Mr. [Rupert] Murdoch has a talent for making money, and I understand that their programming is geared toward making money. The only argument [White House communications director] Anita [Dunn] was making is that they’re not really a news station if you watch even — it’s not just their commentators, but a lot of their news programming.

“It’s really not news — it’s pushing a point of view. 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. We’re going to appear on their shows. We’re going to participate but understanding that they represent a point of view.” 

So “they” will appear on Fox News, on their shows; “they” are going to participate, and then run across town to the safe haven of a CNN or ABC or MSNBC and tell people how “bad” Fox News is.

I will be the first to say that Fox doesn’t always represent us out here in “fly-over” country, but they do, at least give a stage to opposing points of view and they don’t try and pretend that their evening shows are news, unlike MSNBC or CNN do.

indoctrination center

Glenn Beck sat down with Bill O’Reilly the other night and discussed the indoctrination of our children this is taking place in our public schools.  Glenn Beck touched on a standard called “Common Core” and how it’s designed to dumb down our children.  Listen to the below exchange between Mr. Beck and Mr. O’Reilly.

Mr. Beck discusses “Common Core” in more detail in the below clip.  It’s 28 minutes long but definitely worth the watch.

Folks this is a very serious issue.  We cannot allow our children to be indoctrinated by the left or right and we cannot allow our children to be cheated from acquiring the critical thinking and problem solving skills needed to be successful in life.  If “Common Core” is as bad as Mr. Beck asserts, then it must be removed from our public schools.  Parents must get engaged and find out what their children are being taught.  It’s also time to eliminate the Department of Education.  It has done nothing to improve our educational system in America since its creation under Jimmy Carter.  The taxpayer return on this investment has been 0.0.  We cannot afford to turn our backs on this issue.  We must stand up for our children and make this right.

Liberty forever, freedom for all.

Liberty Needs More Doers and Fewer Watchers

Share

My father always told me there are two types of people in this world; doers and watchers.  Even the revolutionary war had its share of doers and watchers.  The doers were the Patriots and Tories.  These people encompassed colonists who kicked in by fighting either for independence or for the King.  Some of the most brutal and bloodiest battles of the war were fought between Patriots and Tories.  They made up roughly 2/3 of the colonial population.  The final 1/3 was made up people who either didn’t care which side won or who desired independence but really didn’t want to invest in the overall effort to achieve it.  They offered up plenty of verbal noise but beyond that they were looking for the doers on the Patriot side to get the job done.  Lately I have been seeing this same watcher attitude in regards to local politics when it comes to getting involved and investing in the time it takes to make a difference.

These last few weeks I’ve been light in my posting because I’ve been investing a considerable amount of time towards local politics and the gun rights issue.  I’ve been talking to people about the issue.  I’ve been contacting my local representatives and expressing my concerns about federal regulations in regards to gun rights.  And I’ve been trying to prompt my fellow neighbors to do the same.  The problem is even though a large number of them are for gun rights and staunchly support the 2nd amendment they just don’t want to invest the time and energy it takes to shake the pillars of the republic.  They want me to do it and then keep them informed.  And this is a problem.

I don’t believe this is an apathy problem.  I believe that some people are just more comfortable watching the game then actually suiting up and getting into the game, even if the outcome of the game has dire consequences.  Even when their liberties are on the line, they choose to let the doers pick up the cause and run with it for them.  It’s irresponsible as a citizen and further erodes a system that relies on the consent of the people to work.  When people say or do nothing when the government wrongs them or takes away their liberties then the people are giving their consent to allow it to happen.  Bill O’Reilly touches on this watcher mindset in America in our featured video of the week.  Please take a few moments to check it out.

I don’t normally say this but Mr. O’Reilly hit it out of the park in his talking points.  We get the government we deserve and right now America deserves Barack Obama and his radical left agenda.  Jim over at Asylum Watch states the following in his article Conservatives on Fire has Evolved; “After the devastating results of the 2012 elections, many conservative bloggers went silent and others began posting less frequently.”  That is absolutely a true statement.  I know that after we lost the election I myself was not only stunned by the results, but I was forced to reevaluate my own purpose and strategy.  But a shift in purpose and strategy doesn’t mean we give up the fight for the cause of liberty and freedom.  It only means we rethink how we do it.  My path led me to getting more involved at the local level and that’s what I’ve done.  But it will all be for not if we can’t transform more watchers into doers.  Because a few is simply not enough to have a major impact.  As misguided as their policies are, the left has been so successful these last few years because they have a large number of doers getting it done for them.

When I look back on the 2012 election in North Dakota, I now see how Republican Rick Berg lost in a very red state to Democrat Heidi Heitkamp.  My door was knocked on twice asking me if I would support Heidi Heitkamp.  Not once did I see anyone pounding the ground for Rick Berg.  Heidi Heitkamp had no business winning the state.  She openly supported Obamacare in a state that overwhelmingly rejected it.  She was a second rate candidate who hid her liberal beliefs by running as a moderate.  Additionally she was one of those candidates who always seemed like she was running for something but could never win.  When I heard she was running for the open seat being vacated by Kent Conrad, I joked here comes Heidi again.  The difference maker this time around was she had more doers pushing for a win than Rick Berg and that’s why this is an important issue.

The left has figured out the formula to win elections.  It’s not complex.  Get the doers to carry the load and the candidates across the finish line.  And this is exactly what they did in 2012 and it worked.  This is what the Tea Party movement did in 2010 and it worked.  If we hope to advance the cause of liberty we need more doers and fewer watchers.  If this means we need to shame the watchers into action then so be it.  If a liberal like Heidi Heitkamp can win in a deeply red state like North Dakota, then surely we can find a way to advance the conservative agenda in Red/Purple states.  It just takes more doers and fewer watchers.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!
