Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.--Sir Walter Scott (Marmion, 1808)
Â It’s a given that Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden gives all new meaning to the word asinine and commits even moreÂ stupid gaffes than his boss President Barack Hussein Obama–which is amazing in and of itself–and so the mainstream media generally ignores Bidenisms such as his recent delarationÂ at the Iowa State Society Inauguration Ball that, “I’m proud to be President of the United States.”
America’s uncrownedÂ Clown Prince retracted that unintentional coup attempt following his audience’s derisive laughter and afterÂ he got a correctiveÂ poke then compounded his inanity by saying,Â ”I’m proud to be Vice President of the United States and I’mÂ prouder to be Barack Obama.”
America needs a good laugh these days and Biden frequently provides one.Â If not for the fact he’s a heartbeat away from being the commander in chief and his rumored, addled ambition to run for the presidency in four years–both scary prospects–we could sit back and enjoy the comicÂ relief.
Far less enjoyable and much less comical is the propensity ofÂ Obama’s MSM to conceal, bury, distort, and lie concerning news stories which contradict or embarrass the administration, stories that are vital to the public’s right to know and understand what’s going on in our increasingly-threatened democratic republic.
For example,Â consider the mainsteam coverage of Obama’s second inauguration festivities last Monday.
Instead of fulfilling their journalistic responsibility of objectively reporting the various events, CNN’s Jim Acosta all but wet his pants from excitement and gushed: â€œYou know,Â I feel like I should pinch myself right now.Â I canâ€™t believe I have this vantage point of history in the making” and subsequently chirped in with, â€œItâ€™s good to be the President.Â Itâ€™s almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day.â€
Chief CNN Obama cheerleaderÂ Wolf Blitzer later raved about witnessing â€œhistory over hereâ€ and shouted out and waved as his idol’s paradeÂ marched by.
ABC’s Bill Weir who claimed in 2009 that local seagulls were â€œawedâ€ at ObamaÂ observed that people attending the 2013Â inauguration were â€œcounting on history to keep them warm,â€ not awed as much as seagulls, I guess, but warm–whatever that means.
Consider also a few other instances of what and how the MSM reports and mis-reportsÂ news which doesn’t precisely fit the Obamian talking points template.
Â .Â RAY NAGIN ET AL.Â Â The former New Orleans mayor infamously referred to the Big Easy as “Chocolate Town” and refused toÂ permit school buses to evacuate and save the lives of his constituents after Katrina and then, drunk as a skunk from his comfy perch in the Hyatt, announced live on Hannity that he wanted Greyhounds and not “f*cking school buses” because, well, because he wanted Greyhounds.
Although you probably didn’t hear about it, Nagin was arrested this past week on 21 federal corruption charges for crimes committed while New Orleans was struggling to survive, charges that could get him more than 15 years in prison.Â
As with former congressman William J. Jefferson, (convicted of bribery), current Senator Robert Menendez, (allegations of engaging in sex with underage Dominican Republic prostitutes), and most other non-Republican reprobates, their party affiliation, Democrat, is rarely if ever mentioned in the MSM, not even in the New York Times.Â Â
.Â GUNS, PRAVDA, COMMUNISTS.Â Despite the reality that the vast majority of gun-owners in America are law-abiding, peaceful, and patriotic, the mainstreamers are fully supportive of the president’s campaign to effectively repeal the Second Amendment.Â You see, deranged people don’t kill people–guns kill people.
Accordingly, the MSM has been harping on last Saturday’s non-fatal accidental shootings at gun shows in North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana.
Yet, theyÂ routinely ignore the stories of Rochester Institute of Technology (New York) students Christopher Boise and his roommate saving their lives from armed intruders by brandishing an AR-15.Â
They dismiss Dr. Susan Gratia-Hupp’s testimony in CongressÂ on savingÂ herÂ own lifeÂ and others during a Killeen, Texas massacre andÂ lecturimg USÂ senators that the Second Amendment was designed to protect Americans “from all of you guys.”
They don’t publicize the story of a 15-year old boyÂ north ofÂ Houston, Texas usingÂ an “assault weapon”Â toÂ save himself and his 12-year old sisterÂ from twoÂ home invaders.
They play down the incident of a Loganville, Georgia mother foiling a daylight home invasion by hiding with her 9-year old twins in a crawlspace and shootingÂ Paul SlaterÂ Â five times withÂ a legal .38 caliber revolver.
Regrettably, Slater survived as didÂ theÂ accused New YorkÂ and TexasÂ potential murderers.
The bad news for Obama’s MSM:Â Russia’s Pravda believes that “These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.”Â The good news: The Communist Party USA is overjoyed at Obamaâ€™s plan toÂ deprive Americans of theirÂ right to keep and bear arms.
Easily the mostÂ vivid example of how the mainstream media lies to benefit their Anointed One is PolitiFact’sÂ 2012 “Lie of the Year,” contending that Mitt Romney’s campaign ad suggesting that the bailed-out Chrysler-Fiat Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China was fraudulent.
PolititiFact, an Obamian surrogate,Â held firmÂ with its lieÂ that Romney lied evenÂ after responsible media provedÂ that Politifact was the liar.
PolitiFact’s original “fact check” reported thatÂ RomneyÂ said Barack Obama “sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China” at the cost of American jobs but Reuters reported this week that Fiat-Chrysler would produce “at least 100,000 Jeeps in China when production starts in 2014.”Â
Granted, all politicians lie and distort facts.Â However, when the media consistently cover up those lies and their distortions in the interests of advancing any president’s agenda and thereby endanger the lives of the American people andÂ the futureÂ of our nation, they are serving not as decent, responsible journalists but as amoral, political whores.
