Mainstream media Orwellian campaign, Fact versus fiction.

What I am about to say probably applies to many of you. I have a good, dear friend who still watches mainstream media such as CNBC. He was touting tax cuts for small businesses and average Americans. He stated that “I” and most people had a lower tax obligation last year. That did not mesh with the many conversations I have had with many people as well as what I remember hearing and reading. However, anytime I sense a conversation is getting mired down in a gray morass, I try to find a common denonimator, a self evident truth. I stated that if he was correct that it isn’t working. People who believe the Orwellian lies from the mainstream media believe that George Bush and the Republicans are at fault. I then commence to confuse then with facts such as the Democrats have controlled congress since 2006. I also state that I am not a fan or defender of either party. What is clear for me is that I do not understand how any “rational,”  intelligent, informed person can support or defend the modern day Democrat party.

    This adds some important information. Keep it for your records.

    I don’t have time to put a post up about it this morning. Have a great day! Zach

    This is a must read article. Here’s one of the important parts of the article-

    ….Remember back when I highlighted this statement in the article from WND: A comparison of the Obama birth announcement in the two newspapers shows they are identical in every detail, including the order of other announcements preceding and following the Obama listing.” ???

    OK Kittens, now I will explain why I highlighted that snippet.

    It has been advanced that both papers printed identical lists as the general rule. As I mentioned before, this was pointed out to add more “weight” to the (ahem) proof these newspaper birth announcements lend to obama’s birth story. As it turns out it was done more or less sporadically. You see, when I decide to research something I don’t do a half- assed job of it. So I pulled a sample size of ten days from each paper. I began the splendidly tedious process of comparing the incidence of the same birth announcements being listed in both papers. Mainly with an eye towards how often they matched in exact order.The only time this occurred in that particular way within the ten days that I researched, was on the dates that had obama’s birth announcements.

    ======================

    Do you know how the author obtained DEFINITIVE copies of the relevant newspapers? It has been one of the mysteries of this entire ‘investigation’ that it has proved impossible to get copies with a pedigreed chain of custody.

    CW – you present a juicy dilemma:

    The Republican party is corrupt also, but in my opinion, significantly less so. And at least some of the Rep’s platform is palatable whereas the entire Dem platform is distasteful.

    But as long as we are deeply married to a two-party system (at least at the highest national levels), what are we to do?

    Voting Independent, Constitutionalist, Libertarian, or other parties would be a wasted vote. No matter how much we wish that weren’t true, and no matter how ‘right’ any of these others parties is, we must face this reality.

    So, it seems like we are forced to vote for the lesser evil. That is a pretty nasty and compromising position that is being forced upon us.

    To me, perhaps the only long-term solution is to revisit George Washington’s farewell address and remind ourselves, and then teach the world, that a “party system” is doomed to failure and not in the spirit or intent of the founders.

    Despite weather forecasts of thunderstorms and rain, the skies were clear and beautiful — but not as beautiful as this patriotic crowd of great Americans and Europeans. It was a real cross section of humanity ………. every race, creed, color and religion were out in all their glory.
