This and That

Oh yes, the news: It's gotten so atrocious it's hard to comment. Basically, there isn't any "news" anymore. No one asks the questions that need to be asked, and FOX is rapidly becoming a joke -- with regular funny segments where the news and insightful commentary are supposed to be. The same cast of usual suspects spout their mindlessness, and the public is left in the dark. For example:

-

What the media keeps calling "The Health Care Reform Plan" is nothing more than a health care takeover by socialists who've either infiltrated or brainwashed our government. Where is their constitutional authority to do any of it? There isn't any, and the media has long since stopped asking about that -- the only meaningful reporting there should be -- a total disgrace. When government is disconnected from the power delegated to it by the citizens, you have tyranny -- the "rulers" can do whatever they please. That MUST be overturned. Government doesn't have to start running summary executions to be recognized as corrupt despots who must be turned out.

-

The 20,000 delegates to the political theater in Copenhagen had nothing to do with science or "saving the planet" (what a farce that phrase is!). Fortunately, some commentators did note that it's all about accumulating global power, and squeezing money out of people who earn it and giving it to people who do not. You've got to hand it to the socialists and brain-dead phony do-gooders, turning the weather into a rallying cry, and the air you exhale into a global calamity is unprecedentedly clever.

The utter gall of "undeveloped" nations to demand money, and the unmitigated corruption of western "leaders" to beg for and promise money that isn't theirs to give. Hillary promises $100 billion? On whose authority? With what possible rational? It's grounds for removal from office, but that's on some long list of offenses already. Why doesn't most of Africa have indoor plumbing yet? Is that your fault? Will global taxation (a) fix it, or (b) just feed the power brokers? You get one choice. The media didn't get the memo.

How many more Muslims have to blow themselves up, kill innocent civilians, rant about jihad, attempt attacks all over the planet, get foiled again and again by U.S. clandestine and overt operators here, before the media gets wise and starts reporting on global jihad? Don't hold your breath. The people in control of that farcical imitation of a news crew are among our worst enemies, hiding the truth from us, spinning and distorting what little leaks in.

A Muslim warrior shouts Allah akbar and kills unarmed defenseless soldiers and the media says his motivation is being investigated? Puhleeeeze. The antidote is common sense. If the media says something, it's probably wrong. If you sense something, you're probably right.

A Muslim from Nigeria trains with al-Qaida, sneaks explosives on board a plane to Detroit, fails to set them off because he got it wrong somehow, and our head of Homeland Security, my former governor Janet Napolitano says flying is now "very very safe," and that the attack "was stopped before any damage could be done. I think the important thing is to recognize here is that once this incident occurred, everything that happened should have happened." Who are these people? Did she make that up on her own, or did Obama's minions counsel her? She later backed off. Why? Which statement does she believe? Shouldn't someone pin her down? Nah.

Two things stopped the attack -- the Muslim jihadi's own incompetence, and the plane's passengers who subdued him. The government's security measures were an abject failure, totally worthless. The media failed to mention that (well, they got to it much later). Napolitano should be forced to resign for nincompoopness. She was at least this bad in Arizona but local media hid it constantly. Now on the national stage it's much harder to hide. The official definition of moron includes her picture.

The biggest inconvenient truth of the past decade was not that Al Gore got a Nobel prize (for making a movie) before Mr. Obama got one (for, well, nothing). It was because someone who knew something had to steal emails from a research center to let the world know the real inconvenient truth -- the global whining data had been manipulated, edited and massaged. And the people doing it threw away the raw data -- threw away the raw data -- refusing to release what scraps they might still have.

With that on the table, tell me again why 20,000 people went to Copenhagen for, what, exactly? Who are those people? That's so many people they had to bring in hundreds of limousines from surrounding countries to meet demand. Not very green is it? The media failed to report on any of the core issues, but focused almost entirely on who was demanding what, and how 193 independent nations couldn't agree on anything (which was actually a good thing if you value sovereignty).

Science was not part of the mix, and the stolen emails -- the real deal -- was treated as a side show. Did you see the pictures of where the temperature stations are located? Like in parking lots and strip malls (which were grassy meadows decades ago, no impact on measurements there, eh?) But accuracy of data doesn't matter, since it's falsified to fit the narrative anyway.

Nice post. Playing by the lamestream rules, is it nincompoopness, or nincompoopedness? (this would be the only thing in your post that would register any thinking by them) All kidding aside, I'm also in personal contact with many "real" people quite regularly. They all have the same frustrations as yourself and have been speaking of these same issues with the same passion. Perhaps the underbelly of the conservative side of America is about to go dorsal in the next election cycle for starters, perhaps for the next decade. We can only hope. Keep up the good work.
