Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Sunday, August 9, 2009


Former ABC reporter turned Obama White House mouthpiece Linda Douglass came out with a three minute video last week in one of the lamest attempts I've ever seen. Her objective was to rebut hard evidence that her boss wants a single payer health care system.

On Sunday, the 9th, she went on CNN with Howard Kurtz to try again to defend the indefensible. Kurtz also neglected to play the most damaging clip of Obama in 2003 and seemed to half-heartedly feign asking tough questions. If he was truly interested in doing so, he would have played the 2003 excerpts instead of vaguely referring to them.

First up, here's the 54 second video from 2003 that was posted by Breitbart back on August 4th.

Here's Douglass on August 9th with Kurtz. Sorry Ms. Douglass. You just continue to lay goose eggs on this one. It's obvious in your refusal to address the most damaging evidence head-on.



While the Obama White House accuses concerned Americans of using a tactic Obama's right hand man David Axelrod perfected, Barack has decided to implement those practices himself.

"Astroturfing" is a term used to describe fake grass roots campaigns. With even a modicum of honesty, it's easy to see that the town hall protesters are nothing more than UNpaid concerned citizens.

Contrast that with the Obama White House's "Organizing for America". The White House is calling on Obama supporters to show up at their Senator's office. Here is what I received today from "Organizing for America":
All this week, OFA members like you will be stopping by local congressional offices to show our support for insurance reform. You can have a quick conversation with the local staff, tell your personal story, or even just drop off a customized flyer and say that reform matters to you.

We'll provide everything you need: the address, phone number, and open hours for the office, information about how the health care crisis affects your state for you to drop off (with the option of adding your personal story), and a step-by-step guide for your visit.

According to our records, you live near Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's office in Austin, TX.
Immediately after calling on me to visit my Senator's office in support of Obama-Care, the email says this:
As you've probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it's getting ugly. Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.
Partisan mobs? What do you call the White House sending mass emails to people they want to show up to do the president's bidding? Isn't that abusing the office? As for physical assualts, the only physical assaults have come at the hands of Obama thugs from SEIU.

The White House is getting desperate and they just may have started the process of overreaching. It is critical that people not back down to this thuggery.



Is there really any doubt that Keith Oblbermann has lost his mind? The video below shows a cross section of people he has likened to the Islamic terrorists who make up Hamas and Hezbollah.

Now we have a video from a district in Arizona that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D) presides over. Viewer discretion is advised as you will be taken INSIDE the mob. Please do not show to children under the age of 17 without a parent or guardian present.

Sidenote: Maybe I'm missing something but is it common for Representatives not to tout their party affiliation in their bios? Giffords is a Democrat but I could not find that identified anywhere on her BIO PAGE (or anywhere else on her site for that matter).

If you're interested in contacting Giffords' office to clarify her party status, CLICK HERE.

In the meantime, take a look at the underbelly of the Conservative Mob.

Lynn Saternow has been writing columns for The Sharon Herald (Western Pennsylvania) for years. I know because I grew up there and used his op-eds for kindling. He may have topped all of his dubious efforts with his latest foray into the realm of articulating nonsense and calling it sensical, asserting that Barack Obama is "Surrounding himself with the Right People".

Come on. Any column that starts out with this has GOT to be the work of a severely misguided individual:
Here are some thoughts from a guy who realizes how much the country misses the leadership of Bill Clinton.
The "leadership" Saternow speaks of apparently reared its head this week when Bill Clinton went to North Korea and so "courageously" rescued two of Allegory's journalists from Kim Jong Il. Lost on Saternow is the fact that we have a Community Org in Chief who loves distractions. The timing of this Jesse Jackson styled rescue is suspicious in that the two women were captured in March and Bill Clinton is sent over there just as the August recess and a passionate health care debate kicked into gear. Having media attention focused on North Korea was definitely better politically for Obama than was the alternative of the health care debate.

Then, in typical liberal moral equivalency, Saternow compares how we treat prisoners at Guantanamo Bay with how Kim Jong Il treats innocent citizens whose hellish living conditions he's responsible for creating.
But how many people does the United States have locked up at Gitmo, accused of terrorism, who might actually be innocent? When people are held without trial, that is one of the things that should scare anyone who believes in human rights.

We are upset about what North Korea did, but in a way we are doing the same thing.
If anyone wants to know why journalism is dying in America, just read a Lynn Saternow column. He has all this concern for the "human" rights of pond scum enemy combatants (lower than POW's) while apparently remaining willfully oblivious to Obama calling on citizens to report fellow citizens who disagree with his health care plan TO THE WHITE HOUSE for having the unmitigated gall to disagree.

Not to be outdone by his own earlier paragraphs, Saternow gives Obama a "thumbs up" so far.
One of his greatest abilities is to surround himself with people who can help the country rather than just be loyal “yes-men” or “yes-women.” That’s why his use of Bill and Hillary Clinton to answer the needs of the U.S. is extremely wise.
Really? We're talking about a president who has a record number of failed cabinet nominations. In fact, the number of appointees who had to withdraw has set a new low heretofore unimagined. How about a short list of a few of those failed nominees:

Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM): Under Grand Jury Investigation for trading New Mexico gov't contracts for campaign contributions.

Tom Daschle: Had to withdraw from the Health Secretary appointment due to cheating on his taxes. This, despite saying in 1998, "tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter." Mr. Saternow, can you say, "hypocrisy"?

Nancy Killefer: Selected to be the Chief Performance Officer in charge of making sure gov't waste is cleaned up. Withdrew with tax problems.

John Cannon: Selected to be a Deputy with the EPA. Withdrew because of serious questions surrounding an organization he was affiliated with began to surface.

Charles Freeman: Possibly Obama's most egregious selection. Tapped as the head of the Director of the National Intelligence Council, Freeman actually said the following about the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989: "I do not belive it is acceptable for any country to allow the heart of its national capital to be occupied by dissidents intent on disrupting the normanl functions of government." Then again, he looked to blame America for causing 9/11. Ah, the same kind of moral equivalency that you seem all too willing to engage in, Mr. Saternow.

To top all of that, we have Timothy Geithner heading the group that oversees the IRS. Wouldn't you think it would be pretty important for Obama to select someone who didn't cheat on his taxes to head such an agency? I know, Mr. Saternow. Those pesky details and facts always seem to get in the way of a good ideologically slanted paradigm. Shucks. You discard reality quite well though. If you'd like to construe that as a compliment, feel free I guess.

How about Eric Holder? After the Justice Department wins a default judgment against the New Black Panther Party which had thugs at a polling station in Philadelphia on November 4, 2008 intimidating voters (one had a billy club), Holder's Justice Dept. suddenly drops the charges. At his confirmation hearing, Holder said he learned some valuable lessons from the Marc Rich pardon when he (Holder) was Deputy Atty. General under Bill Clinton. I guess one of those lessons wasn't levying actual justice.

Quoting Saternow again:
One of his (Obama's) greatest abilities is to surround himself with people who can help the country rather than just be loyal “yes-men” or “yes-women.” That’s why his use of Bill and Hillary Clinton to answer the needs of the U.S. is extremely wise.
You are aware that Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, right Mr. Saternow?

How about an accounting of all those Czars Obama has appointed without congressional oversight or approval? 44 and counting. Have you stopped to wonder how many of them would have to withdraw (some like Car Czar Steve Rattner already have) if they were actually accountable to congress instead of to Obama exclusively?

Mr. Saternow provides a microcosm of why journalism has died in America. He also appears to be at best a Socialist and at worst a Marxist.

The look on the face of Politico reporter Manu Raju while listening to "Leah" from New Hampshire give her take on the town hall protests was eerily reminiscent of the look on the face of Evan Smith, editor of Texas Monthly when he interviewed Ted Nugent on KLRU (PBS Austin back in April).

"Leah" spoke not one falsehood and she did it with such passion that any attempt at a retort on the part of Raju or the other guy would have resulted in a smackdown heretofore not witnessed over the phone.

For posterity, here's the Nugent interview....

The saying, "if you tell a lie often enough, people begin to believe it" has often been attributed to Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. While there's no real evidence he said it that way, the point is well taken. Taken a step further, how powerful are lying words when the person saying them says them often enough? What level of emotional and mental investment does such a person reach when he not only hears the lies over and over but is the one repeating them over and over?

Enter Keith Olbermann. This guy unfortunately may be past the point of no return. He spews lies every evening with such reckless abandon and indignation, he's actually become a walking, talking, breathing lie himself. Something tells me that he got to this point thanks to a culture at MSNBC / NBC that GE head Jeffrey Immelt helped to create - a culture that Obama must be defended with propaganda since he can't be defended with the truth.

The MISSOURA BLOG has this gem of a video where Olbermann compares the Town Hall protesters with Hamas and Hezbollah. I only half-jokingly say this guy must be under a spell because I'm running out of reasons to dismiss such a half-cocked notion.
