I remember growing up in the 1960s, during the Cold War. Every news story that came out of Russia, through their state-controlled News Service, Pravda, was a lie. Lie after lie, told in such a brazen fashion, that if you did not have access to other news sources, you would have sworn it was the truth.
Every lie that was told, was told with the express purpose of masking the inner corruption of the Politboro, or Government, of the Soviet Union, which in turn was designed to reinforce the pablum that they fed their working-class citizens, or the Proletariat.
Since the ascent to the presidency of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, thanks to the New Media, it has become more and more apparent that the United States of America has a Pravda of its own: The Main Stream Media.
Self-identified “Broadcast and Print Journalists” foresook the ideology of objectivity for subjectivity a long time ago. The main reason Americans began to notice was the advent of cable and satellite television, and, later, the World Wide Web.
In the past, the MSM would only interject themselves overtly, every now and then, as in the case of Dan Rather’s blatant falsification of George W. Bush’s National Guard Service Records.
Heck, ol’ Dan was a novice compared to this generation of
From the very beginnings of Barack Hussein Obama’s collegiate career, on through his entry into Illinois state Politics, and on up to his re-election as President of the United States, these journalists have turned a blind eye to every shady deal the Manchurian President was ever involved in.
The questions remain, though.
How did Obama come up with the money to attend Columbia, Occidental, and fergoshsake’s Hahvahd? Why did he make an undocumented trip to Pock-ee-stahn during these years? How did a mediocre student at best become the Editor of the Harvard Law Review, without writing one paper?
Then there’s his Illinois Senate career. Why did all of his Democrat opponents have to drop out of the race? Why did he vote present so many times? Who was behind his push to prominence? What was the full extent of his relationship to “Bomber” Bill Ayers, ‘just a guy from the neighborhood”, who wrote “Dreams of My Father” for him?
When he ran for the US Senate, why did George Soros provide his finances? How did the “personal scandals” of his opponents Blair Hull and Jack Ryan get leaked to the MSM, and what did David Axlerod have to do with it? Why did Obama miss 24% of 1,300 roll call votes?
After 1 1/2 years in the Senate, Obama declared his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States. Who financed him before and after he received the nomination? What did ACORN/SEIU have to do with it? Who and where did all those unaccounted for small foreign donations come from?
When he was inaugurated, why did he screw up the Oath of Office to the extent that he had to re-take it that evening? Why was his first major speech in a foreign venue an address to the Muslim World? Why is it like pulling teeth to get him to refer to Muslim Terrorists as Muslim Terrorists?
Fast forward to BenghaziGate…Why did he place an openly gay Ambassador in a Muslim country , where they behead people for that? What was Amb. Steven’s doing in Benghazi that day? Why didn’t Obama save those 4 Americans? Why is he continuing to lie about the cause of the attacks of 9/11/12, still insisting that an un-watched video caused the attacks?
Why is the MSM not investigating BenghaziGate? For that matter why did we just find out about this?
Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf on November 1, the Pentagon disclosed on Thursday.
The incident, reported first by CNN, raised fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression in crucial Gulf oil shipping lanes.
The drone was on routine maritime surveillance in international airspace east of Kuwait, 16 miles off the coast of Iran, U.S. officials said. The Predator was not hit.
“Our aircraft was never in Iranian airspace. It was always flying in international air space. The recognized limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast and we never entered the 12 nautical mile limit,” Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said in responding to questions from reporters after CNN reported the incident.
Little said the United States believed this was the first time an unmanned aircraft was shot at by the Iranians in international waters over the Gulf. In December of 2011, a U.S. surveillance drone crashed in eastern Iran. Iranians claimed to have shot it down, and created a toy model of the drone to celebrate its capture.
Little stopped short of calling the incident an act of war although the Pentagon was concerned.
Gosh. Do you think that the MSM held onto the story until after the election?
Is Michelle Obama proud of her country…again?
Oh, about that re-election, it now being reported in several states, that more people voted than were on the Voters’ Registration Rolls.
Don’t hold your breath waiting on an in-depth investigation of this.
The MSM have an Inauguration to cover.
Until He comes,
