Janet Napolitano of Homeland Security is quick to label people who are affiliated with the TEA Party or right wing as terrorists even though none of these people have been shown to cause violence against government or any group of people. TEA Party rallies have been peaceful and the places where they gather are always left in better shape than when they arrived.
The violence committed has been committed by the left. The recent violence has been caused by people with leftist beliefs.
Despite this, the Democrat media contorts itself to make some connection to the right. They will falsely claim that a right winger is the cause or blame Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh for the violence when the truth is that left wing nut jobs cause the problems. The left loves to try and make right wingers out to be terrorists (the DHS calls them potential terrorists).
The latest terror attack was against a conservative group by a radical gay activist who has taken the violence of the gay movement to a new level. The gays have been physically violent and verbally abusive when they do not get their way. They have been known to attack little old ladies just because those ladies disagree with the gay agenda.
Now, gay activist and terrorist Floyd Corkins II of Virginia is the latest left wing nut job to commit violence and this time the violence was against a conservative group. Corkins walked into the Family Research Council and opened fire after denouncing their policies. He shot a guard who was able to subdue him despite his injuries.
The media that is quick to label anyone as a right wing terrorist when the target is a left wing entity has remained relatively silent about this shooting. Perhaps this is because the media is happy about it. The left wing groups have labeled FRC as a hate group so it only stands to reason that those who attached the label are responsible for the violence.
After any other shooting involving a left wing victim the media goes out of its way to blame Palin, Limbaugh, Malkin, Hannity and any other right wing public figure. It is their “hate speech” that incited the violence, they say.
If that is the case then it stands to reason that the various liberal entities that have labeled the FRC as a hate group are responsible for the FRC shooting.
Though I doubt you will hear anyone in the liberal media jump to make that claim. Hell, I doubt they will ever make that claim. If anything the media will claim that the gunman was pushed to it by the right.
When a nut uses a gun to cause harm the liberal left is always ready to ban guns and blame the right (even though most of the violence is caused by the left) so I want to know if the FRC shooting shows we need to ban gays…
Never surrender, never submit.

Richard Thaler, who has informally advised the Obama Regime, has a piece up at The New York Times where he discusses gas prices and tells us why they are out of any president’s control. He discusses the market and the supply and demand aspects and he even throws out the inaccurate claim about us having 2% of the world’s oil but using 20%.
He is doing something now that he and the rest of the Democrat controlled media refused to do under George Bush, and that is to defend the leader over higher gas prices. The major reason is that a Democrat is in the White House.
When George Bush was in the White House and gas prices went up the Democrats and their media allies blamed it all on Bush, or as the talking points from the Democrats called them, the two oil men in the White House. Here is a video of Democrats blaming George Bush. If you look closely one of them is Barack Obama (he remains pretty good at blaming Bush).
The New York Times did not write any articles claiming that no president controls gas prices. None of the Democrat media rushed in to point out the items Thaler claims in his article. No, the media were more than happy to pile on and Blame Bush. It was the two oil men in the White House and their policies that caused the high gas prices.
Now that poor little Barry Obama is in there and prices are rising they all have to come to his defense. While doing so, they also point out that higher prices will mean little in the next election (but just in case they need to point out that no president is to blame).
The same media were busy during the Bush years pointing out how higher gas prices would hurt him in the midterm election.
This is what happens when the media are part of the political party.
Let’s help Thaler out a bit. This article discusses the lies that Obama has told (one of which Thaler repeated) regarding our energy. Note the numbers reported by folks in the business.
Let us also tackle the claim that gas prices are out of president’s control. Barack Obama prefers higher gas prices. He can claim that he is working for the little guy and that he wants gas prices to drop but if he does it is only short term and that term is until Election Day. If he gets reelected then prices will go up and he will not mind a bit. He will not have to answer to voters and he can go all in on his energy desires. How did he put it? Oh yeah, he will have more flexibility.
Obama does not have a problem with higher prices. He just wishes they had risen more gradually. His policies are designed to have an increase in prices so people will want more of the failed green energies he is pushing and so that more will buy the failed Chevy Volt, the car produced by Government Motors.
Obama’s EPA is pushing policies that will cause all energy prices to skyrocket (something Obama admitted would happen under his policies) and this is one reason we have higher gas prices. Another is the moratorium on drilling. Obama and his toadies claim there is more drilling going on but any drilling is under items approved under George Bush and is being done on private land, something over which Obama has little control.
Gas is a global commodity over which presidents have little control. However, policies can affect the domestic cost of it and Obama is more than happy to see the cost of gasoline increase though he prefers it to be gradual. He might also like to see it come down before the election but once he has more flexibility he will work to force us into smaller cars or alternate energies by working to increase the price of fossil fuels.
That is what he has said, that is what he wants, and that is what he will do.
No matter how much Richard Thaler and the rest of the Obama media claim to the contrary, Obama is affecting prices and there is no doubt the media are covering for him.
Just ask George Bush, one of the oil men who lived in the White House.
Never surrender, never submit.
A number of different headlines caught my attention today that pointed out the slanted media reporting. As a public service, I’d like to translate a few headlines so they actually report the truth:
#1: Obama agency busts plan to sell rifles to Americans. Translation: Obama is scared that if people are allowed to buy cheap rifles, his government will be attacked. He will do all he can to prevent private firearm ownership, but has to be careful because he knows that if he is honest about his position, he will alienate even more voters.
#2: Council on American-Islamic Relations Launches ‘Islamophobia’ Division. Translation: CAIR, an association intent on the overthrow of the American government, will be attempting to use the freedom of the government system to crush freedom of speech for anyone who disagrees with them. CAIR will continue to demand that people be jailed for saying anything they don’t like. NOTE: If you are going to claim Islam is peaceful, and its “just a few” bad apples, go back under your rock. That’s like me wearing a Nazi SS uniform and claiming I actually like Jews and the rest of Nazism is just “misunderstood.”
#3: School District Settles WebcamGate. Translation: Taxpayers screwed again as working people held responsible for fools in school district. District officials continue on their way, not concerned with reality because they’re not going to be held responsible for their actions.
#4: Biden, Obama’s Traveling Salesman, Makes Hard Sell to Voters. Translation: You’re too stupid to understand government. Vote Democrat because they’re smarter than you.
#5: Obama: 24/7 media makes it hard to focus ‘on the long term’. Translation: You’re stupid. Vote Democrat because they’re smarter than you.
#6: MTV Denies That Obama Telecast Is Political. Translation: You’re stupid. Obama campaigning for Democrats isn’t a campaign appearance because, well, shut up, you’re stupid. Just listen to Obama and vote for Democrats.
#7: The Proof Is In The Numbers: America Is Getting Poorer. Translation: Well, sometimes the headlines are just right.

I guess one of the biggest things that bothers me about the media (and society and politics) today is the total lack of honesty. I remember stories from when I was younger about “Honest Abe.” For those raised in the public schools today, that refers to Abraham Lincoln, a former president of the United States. Now I don’t agree with many of the things Lincoln did, but I remember the stories we learned about him. I don’t know that they’re true stories, but when it’s a story told to children, the moral is important. And that story about Lincoln traveling through the snow to return a few pennies shows that trait of honesty. And I bet he was honest in his raucous debates for public office, too. Maybe that’s why he lost a few times.
But today’s media, especially in the last month or so, has been virulently dishonest. I know for some reporters, it is just them being incredibly lazy, but if you’re that lazy, you really should just quit trying to be a journalist. Did you know that journalists allegedly subscribe to standards and ethics? If you ask them about it, they’ll claim they do, anyway. As a journalist, they are supposed to listen and gather information, verify it, and report the facts. But today most journalists are really just cheerleaders for the Democrat Party. Why? It doesn’t really matter. But take, for example, all “reporting” done recently relating to Obama’s speeches.
In many, many speeches and appearances, Obama continues to claim that Republicans are blocking his agenda and the Democrat agenda. That appears to be the Democrat election strategy for this year. Well, that is a complete and total lie. No, literally. That’s a complete false statement and Obama knows it. Any reporter should know it, and any journalist would know it as well.
For those who don’t understand how the Congress works in this country, the US Senate has 60 Democrats (58 that will claim to be D, 2 that are D, but won’t admit it, and that’s not counting the Democrats with an R after their name). With 60 votes in the Senate, they completely and literally have total control. With 60 votes, they can literally pass anything through the Senate.
There are 256 Democrats in the US House of Representatives (compared to 175 Republicans). With 256 votes, again, the Democrats can literally pass anything through the US House. There is absolutely no way any Republican in the House or the Senate can stop anything that Democrats want. The ONLY way ANY vote fails in either the US House or the US Senate is for at least one Democrat to vote against it. Do I need to type that again? Obama and the Democrats can literally pass anything they desire with every single Republican voting against it.
When Obama claims that Republicans have “blocked” something of his, it is a complete and total lie. I’m sorry, but there is no other way to put that. The Republican Party is completely and totally incapable of blocking anything in Congress today. A journalist should know that.
Now I’m not expecting Obama to change his lies. But I would like for reporters to at least be honest and report that he’s a liar. You know they would if a Republican made those same claims.

Let’s be clear up front. The rally on 8-28 was NOT a TEA Party event and it was not a political event. I get tired of the news reporting it as one of these two things (or both).
I was at the Restoring Honor Rally on 8-28. Participating in it was one of the best moments of my life as I met thousands upon thousands of people who were put out in any way imaginable but who remained pleasant and courteous. The lines for the trains were long and the wait time to get on one was nearly 2 hours and this is true for many of the outlying stations. But people stood in line, conversed with each other, moved a little bit and then stood and talked some more. I know that there is no way that all of those folks made it to the event on time and I am certain that quite a few did not make it at all but they never complained.
It was great being around so many like minded people who were interested in God and Country. People who came a long way to show support and to ensure the honor of this nation was restored. People who never got angry, who waited in lines patiently, who offered food and drink to strangers, people who helped others who needed it. These were the people who attended the rally and they came in many shapes, sizes, sexes, and colors. Yes, there were people of color there, as if that should matter. I am willing to bet that there were more people of color at this event than the one Al Sharpton put on.
I hate to mention the color aspect of it because it should not matter. No one questions a rally Sharpton holds when it has a nearly all black audience. No one questions any event that contains any minority in numbers well above the representation within the general population but let a rally consist of mostly white people and there is a racist element assigned to the crowd. Forget the fact that nearly 80% of the population is white because that does not matter. Forget the fact that there were a lot of non white people at this event because that does not matter. The only thing that matters is how quickly the MSM and the left (but I repeat myself) can scream about how angry and racist these people are.
Would it really matter if every single person in attendance was white? In other words, is it too much to ask that the crowd of people be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin?
It is a shame that the liberal talking heads painted this group as a bunch of angry white people who cannot get over a black man running the country. It is a shame because the so called angry people at this event, which was at least a half a million strong, registered NOT ONE SINGLE ARREST. The police reported NO trouble from any of them. The people at this rally were good people who do good things.
The Mall was clean when they left. People brought their own trash bags to clean up and they gave them to people who needed them. People policed up after themselves and then made sure that any stray garbage was collected and thrown away. The trash was neatly piled around the trash cans around the area. Late Saturday afternoon as the last people were leaving no one could tell that 500,000 people had occupied the area only hours earlier. Contrast this with any rally held by liberal groups and the difference is like night and day. The government is still paying the bills for the clean up of DC after the Obama coronation. The people who attended that left a mess, They soiled the Nation’s Capitol because they have no respect and they have been brought up to believe government will care for you. Don’t worry about the garbage, some gubmint employee will pick up after you.
Glenn Beck had several callers to his radio show who told stories of things that happened to them. One black woman who is sight impaired and has trouble with mobility came from out of town. She had a scooter to get around on but was having trouble. A white family helped her find the elevator to get to the train platform, helped her on the train and stayed with her throughout the entire event to make sure she was OK. This help came from a family of complete strangers and people the media wants you to believe are racists.
Then there was a call from a woman who said that when she and her husband had made their way to the area on the left of the Monument her husband asked her if his wallet was in her purse. She said that it was not. She said she only had two dollars on her and that is all they had to get around on. A man overheard her and asked if the husband’s wallet had been lost. When they told him of their situation he handed her some rolled up money and told her to take it. They both said they could not but were reassured by the man that he was doing OK and wanted them to have it. When they unrolled the money it was four $100 bills. They were very happy and hugged the man who helped them out.
Later that day the husband was called by the police. Someone found his wallet and turned it in. When he collected it all of his money, credit cards and other items were still in the wallet.
These are but a few of the stories that came out of the event. Genuine people doing the right thing. Unfortunately, none of this will matter to those who like to paint any opposition as racist and angry. But who is really angry in all of this. While painting the conservatives as angry liberals come off with some of the most vile and anger filled rants one can imagine. Actor John Cusak Tweeted:
“I AM FOR A SATANIC DEATH CULT CENTER AT FOX NEWS HQ AND OUTSIDE THE OFFICES ORDICK ARMEYAND NEWT GINGRICH-and all the GOP WELFARE FREAKS” FOX
Ed Schultz of PMSNBC described all the violent things he would like to do to those who attended the rally, those at FOX and the people who are opposed to the Obama agenda. He also called the rally participants old, white racists. Schultz is the one with anger management problems.
And though it does not relate to this event, how about Director James Cameron and his desire to call global warming deniers out in the street at high noon and shoot them? Seems to me the anger on the left is widespread.
And has there ever been a time when Keith Olbermann is not angry?
These are the people with anger management problems.
Fortunately, the people who showed up for the Restoring Honor Rally are not like that and the fact they are not is driving the left nuts. They all had their talking points and their reports were all the same but they can’t get over the fact that no one was arrested and that people were peaceful. They can’t get over the fact that they left the place cleaner than when they got there.
The world saw that the people opposed to big government and who want our honor restored are not at all like they are painted each and every day by the media. The picture on the screen and the actions of those involved cast even more doubt on the integrity of the Lame Stream Media.
As Glenn Beck stated on his TV show; “You (those attending) won.”
As for angry old white people, does the person at the top of this post look old, angry or white? Does she look like she cares about color (wouldn’t we all be better off if we did not care about it as well)?
And isn’t she one of the most adorable children you have ever seen? She is one of the faces of America. She is our future and she deserves much better than what we are passing on.
Never surrender, never submit.
