Hat/Tip to I Hate The Media and The Conservative Treehouse.

A long post, but jam packed with plenty of info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Updated 4/12/15 2:15pm with additional video

On the first day we saw the North Charleston, South Carolina, shooting video of Walter Scott by Officer Michael Slager we were as shocked as everyone.  However, as our research now indicates, there is much more to the story.

What we cover here in the latest update might just change the entire way the story continues…

Today, April 12th – We share alarming discoveries within the non-discussed details.

Treeper Diwataman , who previously discovered the “Three Stooges” interaction with Trayvon Martin (which became a game changer leading to the discovery of why Trayvon was at the 7-11) has done another incredible job creating a video to aid a larger understanding.

With discovery of the full radio dispatch recording of North Charleston Police, and with the Dash Cam video(s) from two vehicles, Diwataman was able to assemble a video syncing all of the data into one format easily understood.

The sync’d  video IS BRILLIANT and shows the length of time in the chase, confrontation, physical struggle between Officer Slager and Walter Scott, and the first aid administered by the responding officers.

Additionally, by adding a running clock from the moment Scott begins to run from the vehicle scene you can see the length of the struggle:

 

Walter Scott map 2

You can clearly see and hear this was not a short fight prior to Officer Slager using his firearm to shoot Walter Scott.  But that fact alone is not the most important discovery in the past 24 hours.

What is potentially a game changer occurs when you review Officer Slager stating he had lost control/custody of the x26 Taser he deployed to restrain a non compliant Scott – and recognize the Taser actually appears to have been used against him.

At least one dart appears lodged in the upper torso, chest, shirt of Officer Slager.

If you review the raw footage  (source New York Times) of the witness shooting video you can clearly see the wire from the Taser connected to Officer Slager.

Additionally, if you follow the wire you also recognize the cartridge from the Taser itself is being dragged behind the fleeing Walter Scott.

This is critical because the darts are on one end of the wire, and the cartridge is on the other end – usually cartridge remaining in the trigger assembly.  However, the cartridge is obviously dislodged in the struggle.

If the cartridge is dragging behind Scott -somehow tangled with his foot/shoe or leg – and the line is visibly taut (which it is) then the dart end is indeed attached to Officer Slager.

*NOTE* The civilian version of the x26 (x26C) only has 10-15? of wire, but the LEO version is 25? to 35?.  From the imaging it appears the length is at least 25?.

This means when the Taser fired during the struggle, the darts actually penetrated Slager, not Scott.

Factually this aligns with the recorded statement of Slager and the reports of his initial debriefing.

It could be that one dart is in the leg of Slager and the other is in the upper torso region as evidenced below.

This would also explain the picture of Slager being debriefed after the confrontation with his left pant leg folded up as he explains events to the documenting officer.

Expanding these visuals and going back to the original source video taken by eye-witness Feidin Santana, an emerging picture comes to the surface.  Officer Slager did in fact lose custody of the Taser to Walter Scott.

This puts Slager at a serious disadvantage and obvious risk.

Eye-witness Santana describes hearing the sound of the Taser in his statement (as shared by his attorney Todd Rutherford):

[…]  After observing the two men struggle on the ground and hearing the sound of a Taser gun, I began filming the altercation with my cell phone”. (link)

In the micro-seconds of decision-making, and having chased a fleeing suspect, and having physically struggled for almost two minutes, a scenario emerges where Slager -having lost the advantage of his Taser, and facing the risk of incapacitation from his own Taser being used against him – doesn’t realize (as they stand up – still fighting) the cartridge has dislodged from the trigger assembly.

The Taser wire is clearly still attached to Officer Slager as he draws his firearm to regain control against the risk presented by Scott.  The whereabouts of the actual trigger assembly unknown to Slager but in the video you can see it landing behind them.

If you frame by frame the video you will note the wire is still attached to the torso of Slager, and tightening by the fleeing Scott, as Slager fires the first shot.

walter scott tazer leads

Between shots 1 and 2 the wire pulls free from the officer’s upper torso as Scotts’ forward momentum dislodges it.

However, the wire is also still hung up on the foot/leg area of Scott as he runs away.  You can see the Taser cartridge bouncing along behind him.

View post on imgur.com

An argument can be made, and would be supported by factual evidence, that Officer Slager didn’t know Scott was not in possession of the trigger assembly.  Slager now focused on using his firearm – this is all happening in microseconds.

How dramatically this information changes the position or perspectives of the people who are holding opinion is most likely based on the ideology/bias of the observer.

Does the paradigm shift all the way to justification?  Not sure – that’s not our forte’.

However, weighing all of this against a charge of murder, and considering it presented before a jury…. well, at least to us, at the very least, this presents ‘very reasonable’ doubt.

Walter Scott - Feidin Santana

Video eye-witness Feidin Santana with his attorney Todd Rutherford visit with the family of Walter Scott and their attorney Chris Stewart – Friday 4/10/15.

[…]  “The family’s legal team was gathering evidence for a civil federal lawsuit. “A civil lawsuit can’t bring him back to life,” Mr. Stewart said of Mr. Scott, “but it provides for the future, which would be his children”  (link)

The youngest child of Mr. Scott is 16 and the older three are in their 20’s.   That’s a fact you will see largely ignored by the MSM.  However, perhaps Mr. Scott in death will do for his children what he chose not to do in life.

[…]  “He (Feidin Santana) kept recording as the officer struck Mr. Scottand put a stun gun to Mr. Scott’s side, then as Mr. Scott slipped away”.. (link)

“Slipped away”?  “A Tussle”?  What’s next, a pillow fight? And then there is this little nugget:

[…]  “He (Feidin Santana) checked Facebook to see if he knew anyone in common with the family, and found that they shared some friends. He asked one of those friends to make an unusual introduction. He showed the video to the Scott family on Sunday and turned it over to state investigators on Monday”…. (link)

Common Core Math Problem Blasted by Parent

Common Core seems to be uncommonly stupid.  As social media allows the distribution of the nonsense, more and more Americans are finding out that the only thing common about the core is that it’s intrusive, nonsensical, and full of propaganda.  For the latest, here is a parent’s response to an overly complicated math problem…

Of course, practical reality has nothing to do with education.  In fact, I believe that is intentional.  Reality doesn’t cooperate with the regressive agenda.  Common Core should be called Common Corpse-at least Obama would get it.

Intrusive Common Core Questionnaire

Here is a pic of a questionnaire sent home with a first grader.  The parent’s response indicates their opinion that it is part of common core.

Sorry, but under common core, there is no privacy-only predetermined outcomes and attitudes, and millions of low information too dumb to realize that MSNBC is a propaganda outlet.

Global Warming Ices the South, Targets the Northeast With Snow: CBS Repeats Global Warming Alarmism

Share

Can-I-Get-Some-Global-Warming-Here-770888

What more can be said about global warming?  It has been called global cooling, and currently, the trend seems to be to call it climate change.  However, I call it The Big Lie.   However, the biggest of all the deceptions is that global warming causes cold and snow.  And, in fact, global warming has caused our exceptionally cold winter here in the US.  Because as we all know…

1.  Freedom is slavery.

2.  Peace is war.

3.  Global Warming makes it cold.

As for the current storm, millions are digging out under what is over a foot of snow global warming.  In mnay areas of the south, hundreds of thousands are without power due to ice global warming falling trees and power lines.  And, as predicted, the MSM is responding to calls to blame the cold, ice, and snow in global warming.  MRC has more…

As a snow storm beared down on the east coast on Thursday, CBS This Morning sought to lay blame on global warming, with the headline on screen fretting: “Extreme Weather; Are These Kinds of Storms, Droughts Unprecedented?” Co-host Charlie Rose turned New York City College physics professor Michio Kaku and wondered: “What’s causing all this?”

Kaku proclaimed: “Well, the wacky weather could get even wackier. What we’re seeing is that the jet stream and the polar vortex are becoming unstable. Instability of historic proportions. We think it’s because of the gradual heating up of the North Pole. The North Pole is melting.” Rose interjected: “Global warming.”

Kaku continued: “That excess heat generated by all this warm water is destabilizing this gigantic bucket of cold air….So that’s the irony, that heating could cause gigantic storms of historic proportions.”

Um, should someone tell Kaku that there are almost a million square miles MORE of ice coverage in the Arctic this year, after a record short summer?

Did Kaku know that the Goracle himself predicted that the Arctic would be ice free this year?

You can get over to the MRC and read the rest of the propaganda.   This type of propaganda and blatant lying is all about convincing the low information voters that the world is going to end, and all they have to do to stop it is to give up all their freedom to the state.

Obamacare Has Consequences“Once upon a time you dressed so fine

You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?

People’d call, say, ‘Beware doll, you’re bound to fall’

You thought they were all kiddin’ you…” – Bob Dylan

Obamacare, that singular piece of legislative offal hurled at America by the president and the compliant Jackasses in Congress, has turned out to be so abhorrent that Democrats want to banish the term from the lexicon and the donkey in the Oval Office wants to change his name back to “Soetoro.”  But the stench emanating from this pile of mouldering dreck is only going to get worse:

So far we are only looking at the fallout as Obamacare-mandated changes hit the relatively small individual insurance market. Coming soon to a cable news outlet near you: the tsunami of outrage when Americans in employer-sponsored programs discover that the President wasn’t telling the truth about their plans and their doctors either (The American Interest)

Of course, the damage Obama and the Democrats have inflicted on America is not limited to healthcare.  They’ve done the same thing to the economy and the national defense.  But then, they’re not really Democrats, are they?

JERRY TO FATHER CURTIS: “I wanted to talk to you about Dr. Whatley. I have a suspicion that he’s converted to Judaism purely for the jokes. –  Seinfeld/The Yada Yada

***

Contrary to popular opinion, the US Democratic Party does not set much of its own policy. Democrat policy is actually dictated by the labor unions and radical think tanks, such as the Center for American Progress, and the Institute for Policy Studies. The unions are dominated by the US’s largest Marxist organization Democratic Socialists of America – which also works closely with the C.A.P. and I.P.S. So, by a process of osmosis and deliberate orchestration, D.S.A., and their friends in the Communist Party USA, effectively dictate Democrat policy at state and national levels. (New Zeal Blog)

After all, real Democrats don’t do things like this, do they:

The federal government wanted to hire a “security” contractor to create software that would allow legions of fake profiles on social-networking services to spy, promote propaganda, and smear enemies of the regime … The computer program the government was seeking would allow a handful of operators to control a vast army of fictitious online personalities on social-media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. And one suggestion from a contractor hoping to win the bid involved creating fake profiles for real people — without their consent — to track or smear targeted individuals.

And no real Democrat would ever say something like this:

“I’m really good at killing people.

It wasn’t Castro said that.  Nor was it Mao or Ho or Lenin or Stalin.  It was Barack Obama, the President of the United States.

Democrat?

In Times of Crisis, People Turn on the News, and Avoid MSNBC

Share

Losing_share

When something terrible happens, people turn to the news.  But, it appears that MSNBC is not the place to which to turn.  During last week’s Boston Marathon Bombing crisis.  People turned to the news.  However, it was FOX, and to a lesser degree, CNN, that viewers trusted.  MSNBC was not in the equation.  Newsbusters has more…

TVByTheNumbers.com shared data Friday (through Thursday):

4-DAY AVERAGE TOTAL DAY

FNC: 1,647,000 total viewers (421,000 in the demo)

CNN: 1,048,000 total viewers (403,000 in the demo)

MSNBC: 515,000 total viewers (162,000 in the demo)

 

4-DAY AVERAGE PRIMETIME

FNC: 2,783,000 total viewers (682,000 in the demo)

CNN: 1,619,000 total viewers (674,000 in the demo)

MSNBC: 975,000 total viewers (333,000 in the demo)

So MSNBC garnered roughly one third the total day viewers of Fox, and half of CNN.

The station also got trounced in the all important demographic of 25-54 year olds and demolished in primetime.

Yes, it seems that the leftist propaganda network is quickly abandoned when people want actual information.

In another development, FOX has finally surpassed CNN as the go to channel for breaking news stories.  Since the First Gulf War, CNN gained a reputation for covering breaking news.  According to  Breitbart, that has been broken by FOX…

While CNN is beating MSNBC this week, Fox is now crushing both, and doing so during the seismic news event involving the first successful terrorist attack directed at civilians on American soil since 2001. This kind of story used to be CNN’s bread and butter.

No more.

This ratings dynamic isn’t likely to change anytime soon, either. Since the debacle that occurred on CNN Monday afternoon with the dramatic misreporting that arrests in the Boston bombings had been made, CNN’s “Big News” brand has only been further tarnished. Between blowing the ObamaCare ruling and being caught red-handed pushing for stricter gun control, CNN is now something of a laughingstock on the right and the left.   

Throughout the week, in fact, thanks to a countless number of small blunders, CNN has been facing the kind of ridicule media watchers used to reserve for Fox.

As far as MSNBC being able to handle the kind of hard news that comes with a terror attack, other than Chuck Todd, almost all of the left-wing network’s usual anchors  — Toure, Alex Wagner, Martin Bashir, Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, etc. — have seemed way over their heads this week.  The only time the network has avoided an unsettling Bugsy Malone vibe is when NBC reporters like Pete Williams stop by.

In other words, are people starting to see through the lies?  Are they starting to realize that CNN, and especially MSNBC are nothing more than propaganda outlets?  Time will tell.

Man Shoots and Kills Two Home Invaders: National Media Silent

Share

In yet another example of self defence using a firearm, a man used a gun to defend himself, and his toddler son from home invaders.  Yet, the national media chose to take a pass on covering it.

My last post about guns and self defence caused a big stink on some sites, where people took issue with the comment that the liberals would prefer people to be dead, as it is better for the narrative. Allow me to expand a bit: Democrats, liberals, regressives (whatever you want to call them) will not stop at taking ugly guns-they want them all.  So, at some point, their desire is to have a 100% disarmed populace.  When considering that, any example of the lawful use of firearms is detrimental to the confiscation narrative.  However, dead civilians, and especially dead children, are easily exploitable-they are convenient emotional justifications to ban guns.  However, if they ever did get all the guns, and only criminals had them, there would be even more dead children.  But, I would wager that those dead children would no longer be worth covering.  Dead children only have propaganda value in certain contexts.

Sweden Declares War…on Playtime

Share

Did the Burgermeister Meisterburger, seen here in this undated file photo,take over Sweden?  It would appear so, considering the whacky Cultural Marxism taking place there.  For a bit more, take a look at this from the American Enterprise Institute…

But subterfuge and propaganda appear to be the order of the day in Sweden. In their efforts to free children from the constraints of gender, the Swedish reformers are imposing their own set of inviolate rules, standards, and taboos. Here is how Slate author Nathalie Rothchild describes a gender-neutral classroom:

One Swedish school got rid of its toy cars because boys “gender-coded” them and ascribed the cars higher status than other toys. Another preschool removed “free playtime” from its schedule because, as a pedagogue at the school put it, when children play freely ‘stereotypical gender patterns are born and cemented. In free play there is hierarchy, exclusion, and the seed to bullying.’ And so every detail of children’s interactions gets micromanaged by concerned adults, who end up problematizing minute aspects of children’s lives, from how they form friendships to what games they play and what songs they sing.

The Swedes are treating gender-conforming children the way we once treated gender-variant children. Formerly called “tomboy girls” and “sissy boys” in the medical literature, these kids are persistently attracted to the toys of the opposite sex. They will often remain fixated on the “wrong” toys despite relentless, often cruel pressure from parents, doctors, and peers. Their total immersion in sex-stereotyped culture—a non-stop Toys”R”Us indoctrination—seems to have little effect on their passion for the toys of the opposite sex. There was a time when a boy who displayed a persistent aversion to trucks and rough play and a fixation on frilly dolls or princess paraphernalia would have been considered a candidate for behavior modification therapy. Today, most experts encourage tolerance, understanding, and acceptance: just leave him alone and let him play as he wants. The Swedes should extend the same tolerant understanding to the gender identity and preferences of the vast majority of children.

The linked article has a wealth of information on the gender politics of the left, and how they seek to severely mess up children.  Rather than simply allow kids to play, the liberals there want to monitor and manage it.  In fact, they want to control it completely.  Combine that with the fact that the liberals want to separate children from parents at the earliest possible age, the over all pattern of control takes on a new and more sinister meaning.

When we say that the liberals want to control all aspects of human life, we aren’t kidding.

Democrat Propaganda Translated

Share

You have to love Democrat propaganda, they really try hard to make us all think that they really aren’t race baiting, dependency creating, and class warfare oriented leftists.

Also, as most readers know, I go over my Facebook page daily, and when my friends post an interesting pic, I use it for the Sunday Link post.  But sometimes, I find a piece of Democratic/Communist propaganda that is so asinine, that I cannot resist translating it into reality.  So, here is the image, and the translation follows…

So, here we go…

We’re not against capitalism, we’re against it’s abuses…

Except when we blame businesses for the consequences of our own policies, and attempt to regulate and tax capitalism out of existence.  

We’re not against religion, we’re against it’s misuse as a political tool.

Except when Hilary Clinton, Al Gore, and other Democrats make speeches at churches, or when we force the Catholic Church to pay for abortions, or when Democrats try to ban prayer, or just so happen to omit God from their platform.  Oh, and by the way, Islam is perfectly OK.  

We’re not against Democracy, we are against the manipulation of the Democratic process by corporate forces.

Corporations aren’t people, but labor unions are.  And, as we all know, evil corporations are running the elections…

Oops, well, that isn’t true, but we can’t give away the advantage that the unions goons give us so we’ll just lie about it.  And don’t worry, the media will cover for us! 

We Democrats love democracy.  Unless, that is, we’re going to lose.  Remember Wisconsin last year?  We were going to lose that vote, so we had our democratic state legislators leave the state.  And those people serving in our imperialist military?  They aren’t going to vote for our guy, so we’ll just keep them from voting altogether.  Because, my friends, nothing says democracy like preventing a vote from occurring.  

We’re not against the American Dream, we’re against it’s unattainability by anyone except the outrageously wealthy.  

Yes, and we’re going to say that while creating so many new regulations, taxes, and obstacles, that no one will hire anyone.  Like the people who are getting their hours cut because of ObamaCare, or the tens of thousands of defense contractor employees that are going to lose their jobs, or the people that have already lost their jobs or insurance plans because of ObamaCare, or the people that have had their insurance premiums increase by thousands because of ObamaCare.  Yes, that’s the American Dream for you.  Less jobs, more expenses, less hours, and more misery.  But don’t worry, we’ll just blame it on someone else! 

We’re not against defending this nation, we’re against putting the corporate interests above those of education, infrastructure, and improving the American life.

Ah yes, we’ve run education…into the ground.  We’ve spent billions of borrowed funny money on making our friends in the teacher’s unions wealthy (those campaign dollars have to come from somewhere).  Johnny still cant read, but he knows that capitalism is bad, social justice communism is great, global warming is “real,” and knows how to use a condom. Oh and God, nowhere to be seen, as government is Johnny’s new deity.  And, by the way, if anyone points out that education is a steaming pile of failure, or worse, tries to change it, we’ll smear them.  And again, don’t worry, the media will cover for us! 

And, with people being indoctrinated and not educated, they won’t know that we’re screwing them.  That, and we’ll blame it on someone else.

Oh, and when our POTUS bows and scrapes before monarchs, or apologizes for  people killing us, or funds Muslim extremists, we’ll shift blame again (we’re good at that, you know).  And when we knew a terrorist attack happened, we blamed it on a YouTube video that no one watches.  And when it is found that we deliberately denied requests for additional security at that embassy, we’ll try to cover it up.

Oh, and it’s all Mitt Romney’s fault, don’t ya know? 

We’re not against America, we’re against the abandonment of it’s values in favor of economic and political security.  

As long as those values aren’t Christian, Jewish, concern anything with freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms, separation of powers, or pretty much anything in that outmoded Constitution that the Tea Partiers keep talking about.  Oh, and they’re racists , by they way.  

We’re not against profits, we’re against the profiting at the expense of, and the detriment to, the health and well being of American families.  

Yeah. that doesn’t make sense to us either, but it sounds nice.  And in the end, sounding nice is really what matters.  We’ll take more and more of other people’s money. That money will be wasted, and as a result, products and services will not be purchased, meaning that there will be less jobs.  Investments that create jobs won’t be made.  People will be laid off.  Some businesses will go under, and  more jobs will be lost.  And, we’ll keep on sounding nice when people are upset about our policies-because it’s all George Bush’s fault, right? 

We’re not traitors, We’re not unpatriotic, We’re not elitist.

When we weren’t cozying up to the Soviets, or the ChiComs, or funding the Muslim Brotherhood, or sending guns to Mexico to justify more gun control, or intentionally allowing weak security at our embassies, or selling out our allies, or selling military tech to China, or leaving our borders wide open, or denouncing our country, or blaming it for all of the problems of the world, or getting out kids in uniform killed due to asinine rules of engagement, or bowing before dictators, or tearing down our military, we’re real patriotic.

You got that, you cro-magnon, redneck, knuckledragging, ignorant, racist, teabaggers! Go back to flyover country where you can cling to your guns and religion!

This is our America too.

Well, not really…yet.  Once we get rid of all of that silly freedom stuff, we’ll have our utopia.  We just won’t call it Communist.  And, when it fails, we’ll blame it on someone else! 

And we want it back.

Well, we’ll just forget that we had the White House, and super-majorities in both the House and Senate for almost two years.   And even though the GOP didn’t have enough votes to block a single thing, it’s still their fault.   

Whew!  It took a while, but it was fun. Just consider this translation a community service of the CH 2.0!

Intelligence Community Critical of Obama Administration Actions in Libya

Share

As times wears on, we are finding out more and more about the Obama administration’s incompetence in Libya.  The failures, the lies, the avoidance, more lies-it’s all part of how this story is unfolding.  And, if the MSM was doing it’s job, rather than being a regressive propaganda machine.  It would be front page news.  Doug Ross (no relation) has the latest on the failure and resulting cover-up…

I wonder if releasing a movie that depicts the president double-tapping Bin Laden will help?

REVOLT OF THE SPOOKS

Intelligence officials angered by Obama administration cover up of intelligence on Iranian, al Qaeda surge in Egypt and Libya

Weeks before the presidential election, President Barack Obama’s administration faces mounting opposition from within the ranks of U.S. intelligence agencies over what career officers say is a “cover up” of intelligence information about terrorism in North Africa.

Intelligence held back from senior officials and the public includes numerous classified reports revealing clear Iranian support for jihadists throughout the tumultuous North Africa and Middle East region, as well as notably widespread al Qaeda penetration into Egypt and Libya in the months before the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

…Intelligence officials pointed to the statement issued Sept. 28 by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) that raised additional concern about the administration’s apparent mishandling of intelligence… Officials say the ODNI’s false information was either knowingly disseminated or was directed to be put out by senior policy officials for political reasons, since the statement was contradicted by numerous intelligence reports at the time of the attack indicating it was al Qaeda-related terrorism

And you Wondered why we were Concerned About Census Questions?

Share

If you recall, there were a lot of questions regarding the details requested in the last census.  For example, I knew that census data was misused in the past, but I never took the time to research it sufficiently to write a post.  Bunkerville, however, has done the necessary legwork.  Here is an excerpt…

This rounding up of Japanese-American citizens was “authorized” by President Franklin D. Roosevelt who bypassed Congress and issued Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942. The executive order was written and carried out in total violation of the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

http://www.archives.gov/historical-docs/todays-doc/index.html?dod-date=219

• The legal loophole that was used to justify this blatantly illegal act is as follows: Military commanders were granted the “administrative right” to declare entire states to be “exclusion zones” from which people of Japanese ancestry were excluded. The internment camps were, of course, not included in the exclusion zones, meaning that all Japanese-Americans were forced to be put into the internment camps in order to comply with the exclusive zone orders. This action, by the way, is the ultimately expression of race-based profiling.

• No one was given a trial. No charges were even filed against those who were forced into the camps. They were simply rounded up at gunpoint and shoved into railroad cars and busses.

• The U.S. government issued shameless propaganda films to spread disinfo about its illegal actions. Here’s a particularly shocking example of such propaganda from 1942

And these people were located by using census data.  The government knew exactly who they were, and where to find them.  Since it is reliable to state that best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, we have to assume that the government will again use census data to track down and detain citizens.  All they need is the proper provocation.  And, we have to assume that the government will again use propaganda to justify their efforts, and that a lapdog media will tow the line.

Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC Engages in Leftist Propaganda for Independence Day

Share

Well, just in cased you thought that even MSNBC couldn’t ruin Independence Day, think again.  MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry went out of her way to propagandize the birth of our country.  The Blaze has the video, and the transcript…

Melissa Harris Perry, say things like this, according to Mediaite:

In what is sure to rankle the feathers of many conservatives, MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry took to her show Sunday to ponder the meaning of Independence Day, highlighting mostly the stains on American history. “It’s ours, all of it,” she said. “The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery, also the liberation and the hope and the deeply American belief that our best days still lie ahead of us.”

“Independence Day is more aspirational than actual,” she began her monologue. “We have longed defined the American Dream with commodities, a home of ones own, better education for the kids, family vacation and a car to the vacation in. And if we measure the dream by acquisitions, we’re in trouble. National unemployment remains above 8 percent. Wages have dropped, and the median net worth of American families plummeted by almost 40 percent.”[…]

She continued on to explain that her favorite story for this Fourth of July is one of people who are “not technically free.” She described a group of 27 inmates who recently completed their GEDs at the jail on Rikers Island. “Despite being incarcerated, they hold fast to the optimistic belief that education, hard work and second chances are still the stuff of America. And that they have a right to take part in the dream.”

“So on the Fourth of July,” Harris-Perry concluded, “I’m going to think of the Rikers Island graduates, and I’m going to wave a flag without hesitation — not because I’ve forgotten my nation’s many wrongs, but because I remember them. And I am nonetheless proud of my country, not for its perfection, because the alternative is too grim, the alternative is to give up on the dream of the nation founded in the belief, if not yet the practice that all are created, all deserve freedom, and all have the right to pursue happiness. Now, that is a dream worth celebrating — with fireworks.”

And here is the video…

Regressive Propaganda Debunked

In my search for images for the weekly link post, I found this image…

Here is the correction/translation…

“Blessed are the bigoted, for they shall never be at fault.”

You mean that great conservative LBJ?

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

Or, perhaps that great conservative, Margaret Sanger…

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

I’m sure that’s what the guy who made the image had in mind.  Or, what about all the regressives that violently resist any attempt to allow blacks to escape horrific schools?  Yeah, they must be conservatives too!

“Blessed are the selfish, for they shall always have taxes to blame.”

You mean, the people that demand that the government steal from others, and give to them?  Because, nothing says altruism like demanding the fruits of someone else’s labor.

“Blessed are the conservative poor, for they shall always vote against their own best interest.”

Yeah, because becoming permanently dependent on government is everyone’s goal, as opposed to maybe getting a job? Is self interest being able to make one’s own way, or having the government manage all aspects of human life?  I guess for regressives, being under the thumb of government is self interest.

“Blessed are the self-loathing, for they shall always have a church to feed their misery.”

You mean, like the greenies that want most of the human race to die, or at least live under subsistence agriculture? Well, that is a stretch, because they don’t self loath, they loath others, and never seem to live in the way that they propose for the rest of us.

“Blessed are those who don’t know history, for they shall always fight against a better way.”

Yeah, because socialism really didn’t kill 100,000,000 people in the last century, and Europe hasn’t run out of “other people’s money.”  This time, it’ll really work, right?

“Blessed are the willfully ignorant, for they shall never crave freedom.”

If in freedom, you mean…

1.  Government telling you when to eat.

2.  Government telling you  where to live.

3.  Government telling you what you can drive, or if you can.

4.  Government telling you how much you can be paid.

5.  Government telling you, “sorry, your treatment is too expensive, time to take the pain pill rather than the expensive operation.”

Yes, there are a ton more.  But, as well all know, “freedom” means having the government control your life from cradle to grave.  But hey, forget history, because you friendly local regressives are more than happy to re-write it for you!

“Blessed are the filthy rich, for our Heavenly Father bestows wealth only to the deserving.”

Yeah, because of someone made money, they had to steal it from someone else, right?

“Blessed are the blindly devout and fiercely loyal, for they shall always keep the corrupt from being brought to justice.”

Yeah, because having the AG lie to Congress repeatedly, getting funny mortgages from criminals, committing perjury, and the like are completely excusable, and should be overlooked.  Just pay attention to the MSM, they won’t cover it!

Well, that was fun, and incredibly easy.

Some in Congress Seek to Repeal Ban on Propaganda, Are They Aware That MSNBC has Already Ignored it?

Share

Imagine my shock and surprise when I read of the proposal to eliminate laws restricting the use of propaganda in the US.  Here is more via Buzzfeed…

An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned.

The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website.

The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.

The bi-partisan amendment is sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry from Texas and Rep. Adam Smith from Washington State.

In a little noticed press release earlier in the week — buried beneath the other high-profile issues in the $642 billion defense bill, including indefinite detention and a prohibition on gay marriage at military installations — Thornberry warned that in the Internet age, the current law “ties the hands of America’s diplomatic officials, military, and others by inhibiting our ability to effectively communicate in a credible way.”

If you’ve been a reader here for any length of time, you would realize that the American people are subjected to a steady stream of propaganda-right from the talking heads of the MSM.  Also, you would know that the White House coordinates with organizations, like Media Matters, who then coordinate with Media outlets, like NBC-all to get the narrative pushed, while giving all the appearances of being “objective media.”

And, just before you mention that the networks are privately owned, need I mention NPR?

So, I think that the proposed legislation will do nothing more than make official the media bias and disinformation that the American people receive on a regular basis anyway.  Just remember, a difference that makes no difference really isn’t a difference at all.

Keith Olbermann Fired: Still Can’t Play well with Others? UPDATED: Olbermann’s Response

Share

It seems that Keith Olbermann is having a very hard time holding a job.  After less than a year on Current TV, Olbermann was let go by the network.  The Blaze has more…

“We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before,” network co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt wrote in a letter to viewers. “Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”

Olberman’s dismissal comes less than a year after he was hired by the network, following his firing from MSNBC.

I guess the Goracle hinted very strongly that Olbermann had a very hard time following their corporate vision.  I’m sure he could do the propaganda just fine, but would imagine that he wasn’t at all  able to handle the “respect” part.

At any rate, I think he needs to get a placard stating, “Will propagandize for food.”

UPDATE:  Olbermann has given a response, via the ironically named Twitlonger…

My full statement:

I’d like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.

Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.

It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently. To understand Mr. Hyatt’s “values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty,” I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee’s name was Clarence B. Cain. http://nyti.ms/HueZsa

In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it.      

I did reprint it in full, as it appears to be a public announcement.  Considering that I have no faith in either Olbermann or the Goracle, who knows where the truth lies.

UPDATE II:  Apparently, legal action might result…

Olbermann’s longtime attorney Patty Glaser has vowed a tough fight with the network after negotiations over a severance payment for Olbermann failed. And Current has hired a team of crisis public relations experts to help guide their response.

Public relations experts?  To fire Olbermann?  I think that states far more than I could.

Coming Soon: The Purge of the TV Weathermen

Share

It seems that not enough TV weathermen are spreading the word about Climate Change The Big Lie.  Consequently, lefties are promoting an offensive to either convert, or get rid of those that hold fast to the truth.  Weasel Zippers has more…

Concerned that too many “deniers” are in the meteorology business, global warming activists this month launched a campaign to recruit local weathermen to hop aboard the alarmism bandwagon and expose those who are not fully convinced that the world is facing man-made doom.

The Forecast the Facts campaign — led by 350.org, the League of Conservation Voters and the Citizen Engagement Lab — is pushing for more of a focus on global warming in weather forecasts, and is highlighting the many meteorologists who do not share their beliefs.

“Our goal is nothing short of changing how the entire profession of meteorology tackles the issue of climate change,” the group explains on their website. “We’ll empower everyday people to make sure meteorologists understand that their viewers are counting on them to get this story right, and that those who continue to shirk their professional responsibility will be held accountable.”

According to the Washington Post, the reason for the campaign can be found in a 2010 George Mason University surveys, which found that 63% of television weathermen think that global warming is a product of natural causes, while 31% believe it is from human activity.

Keep reading…

I love how they worded their plans. “Our goal is nothing short of changing how the entire profession of meteorology tackles the issue of climate change…”  So, in other words, you are to get a steady stream of propaganda with your weather?  Yes!

“We’ll empower everyday people to make sure meteorologists understand that their viewers are counting on them to get this story right, and that those who continue to shirk their professional responsibility will be held accountable.”  To put it another way, “We’ll have people harass weathermen (and their stations) who refuse to endorse Climate Change The Big Lie, until they either agree to broadcast propaganda, or they are fired.  To put it simply, they are going to use the Alinsky Method against weathermen.
