Goodbye to the Fourth Estate

Journalism was an honored and respected profession, at one time. It was the chosen profession of Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite. Murrow is the most distinguished figure in the history of American broadcast journalism. He is honored within the profession as having “set standards of excellence that remain unsurpassed.”[1] Cronkite was often cited as “the most trusted man in America”. [2]These accolades were not undeserved.

Because of the importance of journalism in society, most members of the fourth estate abide by certain professional and personal ethics. Many journalists attempt to cultivate an air of neutrality, focusing on reporting of the issues as they are so that people can judge the facts for themselves.[3] It is vital to the integrity of the profession to keep neutral and uphold the standards set by these icons.

But, Journalism is no longer this worthy profession. The members of the press have transferred their allegiance to Power. Power is more important to them than truth or ideals. Spin has become the norm for both politicians and Journalists. Why is that? What is wrong with the truth?

A recent Gallup Poll showed only 21% of Americans has confidence in television news, a new low. [4] After watching the coverage of the recent election, I can understand it. Think of Candy Crowley and her obvious support of Obama in the second debate. Some call it a mistake, but I say there are too many clues, and it points to a deliberate act.

It seems to be an open secret among journalists that the mainstream news is propaganda.[5] It has recently been exposed that CNN takes monetary payment from the Obama administration for selective news stories. [6] With all of these examples, and many, many more to be found, why is it such a surprise that Americans cannot possible trust the Media?

The majority of the Main Stream Media (MSM) are wealthy Socialists that revel in their power to control every aspect of this country. When they decided that the time was right for this country to turn Socialist, they picked their candidate and they controlled all the spin to get him elected. They showed absolutely NO concern for the people of this country. They wanted to prove their power, not for the good of the people, but for the good of themselves.

When their candidate proved to be less than they expected, and should never have been nominated for a second term, let alone reelected, they proved that they still have the power, and they are really in control of this country. Obama’s history, his record, the actual facts of his first term, should have kept the democrats from even nominating him for a second term. But, with the MSM and the spin they did, we have people believing he is the best thing since sliced bread. Thanks to journalists that have absolutely NO ethical standards at all!

There are new Social Media sites, such as Twitter, United Patriots[7], etc. It is no wonder that people are turning more and more to these sites for their news. Americans want someone they can trust. Who will fill that role? It certainly will not be the MSM. They have proven, repeatedly, that they cannot be trusted.

Something Positive?

I have been trying to come up with something positive about our country now. I am Positive that it is not the same country that I have lived in all my life. I am Positive that it is not the same country I taught my children to treasure. I am Positive that it will never be the same again.

I was raised to fight Communism. The Cold War was the Bad Times. We celebrated when it ended! Now, teachers are card-carrying Socialists. They are indoctrinating our children into Communism. Our Government had a well-thought out, and well-executed, plan to turn this country into a Socialist/Communist State. They carried out their plan, they succeeded.

Mitt Romney & the GOP were not strong enough to even use the word “Socialism” during the campaign. They were not strong enough to fight Fire with Fire. They were the “nice guys”. We kept telling them not to roll over like they did, but, they knew best, as we can see. We voted for Mitt to be our “Champion” and he gave up.

We need a Champion! We need someone who is not afraid of Obama, or Reid, or Pelosi, or Jarrett, or of “payback”. We need someone with enough backbone to not be afraid of being called Racist or Sexist. We need someone who is not afraid to admit that Capitalism is a good thing. We need someone who is confident that standing up for what you believe to be right is more important than being what society calls Politically Correct. We need someone to Stand Up for us when the order to Stand Down is given.

I admire Sen. Graham and Sen. McCain. They have put forth an amazing effort to search out the truth on Benghazi. They will be stopped by Obama, of course, probably by an Executive Order, but at least they have tried. They do not have much support, even from their own party, but, they have the support of us little people. They are to be admired for their efforts.

The Conservative leaders we have now, such as Speaker Boehner, have fallen into the trap that was set for them, where they are NOT strong enough to fight for OUR Rights. Boehner knows that we have lost. He is currently looking to work with the Dems/Libs/Commies in Washington because he now has to look out for himself and his job. And he will do this under the name of Bipartisanship.

The Conservatives and Libertarians have NO Champion. We have been thrown under the bus so our leaders can secure their jobs within the administration. They need to work with Obama, or the Senate and the House will be disbanded. Yes, that will be next. Watch Morsi in Egypt and see what Barack will do next.

Yes, what is happening in the United States is deliberate, systematic, and incomplete. I believe that we have seen our last Presidential Election. I believe that Obama will give himself ultimate power, then, turn this country over to the United Nations. I believe that Boehner knows this and is afraid to push for ObamaCare to be included in the Fiscal Cliff Talks for this reason.

I am Positive that we are now a Socialist Nation.

I am Positive that Obama will attempt to wipe out Christianity as well.

I am Positive that True Americans will not STAND DOWN for this…

Bar Stool Economics ~ our tax system explained.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and
the bill for all ten comes to $100 and If they paid their
bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something
like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed
quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the
owner threw them a curve. “Since you are all such good
customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of
your daily beer by $20.” so drinks for the ten now cost
just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way
we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected.
They would still drink for free.But what about the other
six men – the paying customers? How could they divide
the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair
share?’.They realized that $20 divided by six is
$3.33.But if they subtracted that from everybody’s
share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each
end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner
suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s
bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to
work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $50 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before.And the first
four continued to drink for free.But once outside the
restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

“I only got a dollar out of the $20,”declared the sixth
man. He pointed to the tenth man,” but he got $9!”
“Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only
saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got nine times
more than I!” “That’s true!!” shouted the seventh man.
“Why should he get $9 back when I got only two? The
wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the
first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all.
The system exploits the poor!”

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks,
so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But
when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something
important. They didn’t have enough money between all
of them for even half of the bill!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college
professors, is how our tax system works. The people
who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from
a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for
being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore.
In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the
atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

MODERN VERSION OF THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well-fed while he is cold and starving. CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? …

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green… .’ ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize and ramshackle the once prosperous and peaceful neighborhood.

THIS is just a SAD Account of the DNC!

By Rev. Austin Miles The Conservative American Patriot

When the DNC came to Charlotte, area churches, 100 of them, offered hospitality, not knowing how much the Dems hate God and would actually boo God at the convention. They had no idea how that hatred would be directed at them and their churches.

The Sunday before the DNC, over 9000 people had come together to pray for the convention. Then, wanting to extend hospitality to the visitors to their city, 56 of the churches set out to “Adopt-a-Delegation.” They put together gift baskets featuring Carolina Pralines and a letter welcoming them to the city and offering assistance in transportation, childcare or spiritual matters. According to writer, Todd Starnes, The DNC banned the churches from distributing the gift baskets to delegates because, DNC said, the congregations hold values that are contrary to the party platform. Read that carefully. David Benham, one of the organizers of the outreach said, “We were just trying to display Southern hospitality.” DNC officials, however, conveyed to city leaders that the Christians would not be allowed to present their gift baskets.
Even the Charlotte Mayor’s office jumped in to tell the churches not to participate, saying that their views on women’s rights are contrary to the platform. That’s right….the same platform that booed God later. Benham then asked if they could send welcome letters to the delegates. Again, the DNC refused, because, they said, “The churches hold pro-life values.” The baskets did not contain a single political or pro-life message. They just wanted to give them regional candles and a welcome letter. The DNC refused to return numerous phone calls seeking comment. But it gets worse.

When a gathering of 200 Muslims showed up to pray for the convention, the Dems welcomed them with open arms and the liberal media gave extensive national coverage. It is ironic that this day, in the shadow of that Islamic prayer event, we commemorate the greatest tragedy in American History, when Muslims attacked America on September 11, 2001, brutally killing thousands of innocent people. Muslims who publicly state their hatred of our country with fierce determination to kill us all and put America under Sharia Law, are welcomed by the Democratic Party while Christians are pushed out of sight like criminals because they respect life and hold family values. These are the same democrats who want you to vote them into office to direct the United States of America and every life from beginning to end. It is obvious that we must not let this happen.

Abortion Story

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: ‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the doctor said: ‘Ok, and what do you want me to do?’ She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’ The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.’

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!’ ‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Love says, ‘I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.’ Abortion says, ‘I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.’

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Benghazi? Subject Closed.

Susan Rice is the US Ambassador to the United Nations. She has sworn to uphold our constitution. She has LIED to the American people. She is not trustworthy.

She has done everything her President told her to do.

That’s it in a nutshell. Susan Rice is representative of our government. Our President has put himself above the law, and now has put his cronies in government above the law as well. They are allowed to bend and break the law, and are never held accountable.

Start with Fast & Furious. Eric Holder is the top law enforcement in this country. What happens when he breaks the law? Nothing, of course. If questioned on his illegal activities, our President just seals the records. Subject closed.

What about the numerous cronies of Holder? Same thing. Subject Closed.

How about the Massive amounts of voter fraud? This should be automatically investigated by our government. Nope. Won’t even discuss it. Subject Closed.

Now, let’s talk about Benghazi. The White House knew about the attack as it happened. They watched this in real time. They knew it was a Terrorist attack, and yet, they LIED to the American people and blamed it on a video. Obama said it. Clinton said it. Patraeus said it. Rice said it. Over and over again they said it. They made us pay $70k for an ad saying it, played in the Middle East. They said it to the families of our fallen Americans. Over and over again they said it. Obama said it to the UN General Assembly, SIX times in the same speech.

But, during the Presidential debate, Obama claimed to have called it a Terrorist Attack from the first day. Before he blamed the video? Before he had Hillary give her speech on TV? Before he made the TV ad for the Mideast? Before he went to the UN? …Before he had the director of this offensive video jailed?

Face it, I expect that there isn’t a single person in this country, with the possible exceptions of Geraldo Rivera and Chris Matthews, who really thought the attack was caused by the video. Everyone knows that the President LIED to us. We can also figure out why he lied to us. It doesn’t fit with his being the Prez that conquered Terror. Al Qaeda is on the run, they are defeated.

We know what happened. We know why it happened.

The question would be “What are the consequences”?

Consequences?

For Benghazi?

 

Subject Closed.

UPDATE: National Strike, Part 2

Since linking the original article to Twitter, I have been suspended from that site. It appears that a Liberal does not want me to post conservative views and issues. I have received quite a bit of support from fellow conservative Patriots. Whether or not they agree with the concept of a National Strike, they fully support my freedom of speech, and right to post.

No one wants a Chicago Thug to get away with decimating the integrity of our government! We cannot let this happen! If you are still unsure whether or not it happened, check the following links, and then decide:

Here is an excellent site that is documenting the accusations of voter fraud, with links to petitions for recount: http://obamavoterfraud.blogspot.com/

And Michelle Malkin’s list of voter fraud: http://michellemalkin.com/2010/10/25/voter-fraud-watch-theyre-at-it-again/

These are just 2 sites of many. Do the fact-check.

As citizens of this great country, our laws allow us to questions everything done here! This includes Presidential Elections. If we feel that the election was unfair, either by voter fraud, miscounted votes, or any other reason, it is our DUTY to demand a recount, or a new election if it is determined to be necessary. This is done through the Secretaries of State for the affected states, mostly the swing states. If the said Secretaries of State have not certified the votes, then the election results are not valid! We must petition these states to demand a recount. We must petition these states to investigate the accusations of Voter Fraud!

Additionally, we can petition the White House to insist on the recount. There is a petition underway, here: http://wh.gov/9n5n Please go and sign it.

But, what if all our requests are ignored and swept under the rug? What can we do? WE CAN GET THEIR ATTENTION! We can call for a National Strike. A LOCK OUT! We can shut down our businesses for 3 days. We need not shut down permanently, but just long enough to get the attention of our government. Yes, 3 days can make a difference.

Not just Employers can take part. Everyone can participate! Every citizen that believes we have been given a raw deal should be active in this protest. If we refuse to conduct business in this country for 3 days, we can have a major impact! If we spend those 3 days in front of our federal buildings, they will be forced to take notice! If we do this during one of the busiest weeks of the year, the impact will be even greater!

I call for a National Protest, A LOCK OUT for the week of December 3-7, 2012. If you cannot participate for the full week, try for 3 days, or at least the first day. Spend those days in front of your Federal Buildings, with signs showing your disagreements. Help us get the recount!

This needs to be a National Movement. One or two communities will not accomplish what we need. If the country comes together to protest this false election, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Share this with your friends. Post it on your Social Media sites. Talk about it with the news people in your community. Make this go viral. Let’s get our voices heard!

More About Me

I am a Bitter American clinging to my God and my Guns! We need this country to get back to it’s basic ideals. The Founding Fathers did not have Socialism in mind when they designed our country. I do not have Socialism in mind when I think of a Great Nation! I want my Country Back!
