When will it occur to you, that most of this stuff is NOT in the "liberal media"???

Post-Palin Alaska has largest debt burden in US

As U.S. GDP declines during GOP regimes, it does so because 'wealth' is literally transferred upward to a 'ruling elite' class, a laundered pay-off to the 'base'. At present, just one percent of the nation's total population owns, by some estimates, more wealth than is owned by about 95 percent of the rest of the population. *

American College Debt

All Americans have a right to a college education...at a state school...or a county school...if you can even afford that...

Many progressives are angry at President Barack Obama’s concessions to corporate interests -- and even to Republicans -- on healthcare reform, essentially embracing Mitt Romney’s industry-friendly plan for Massachusetts and throwing away the sliver of a public option that the House had approved.

But, as Jeff Cohen notes in this guest essay, progressives won an important consolation prize when Congress tacked on to the healthcare "reconciliation" bill a direct student loan program, which cut bank subsidies out of the process:

Soon, private profiteers (and subsidies to them) will be sidelined, and the government will save taxpayers billions by providing service directly to Americans in need.



Does anyone else find it odd, that right after Obama passed the student loan bill, there was a student loan data theft???

Company and federal officials said they believed last week's theft of identity data on 3.3 million people with student loans was the largest-ever breach of such information and could affect as many as 5% of all federal student-loan borrowers.

Mission: Accomplished! Rightwing Republican operatives take down ACORN with false edited hoax videos that the media ate up and didn't retract. ACORN is a community activist group of mostly poor minorities that was the target of conservative smears because they don't vote Republican and they registered a million voters last election. Republican Jesus would be proud!

NYT corrects ACORN story, but damage is done

Now that the community organizing group ACORN has declared that it is disbanding, many observers say the media should bear the blame for publicizing the phony tapes that started the group's downfall. Blogger Brad Friedman says that while the New York TImes has admitted some errors in its reporting, that doesn't go far enough.

Ed Asner for 9/11 Truth

AE911Truth.org



15 MILLION hits on youtube:

Bombs, explosions, secondary explosions, explosive devices....how many more times do we need to hear these words being said by 9/11 witnesses before we start asking questions about what really happened on that awful day?

All of the individual news reports in this video can be found on YouTube and other video sites. This video shows that many actual 9/11 witnesses heard and saw explosions going off inside the towers, long before they actually fell. These witnesses include police, firemen and reporters.

And what is even more shocking is the fact that all of this has been largely ignored by the mainstream media after the day itself.

For those debunkers who wish to keep saying that the explosions were caused by gas lines, please save your breath. All of the three buildings that were blown up on 9/11 were all Class-A buildings. This means that gas lines were not permitted because the buildings had to comply with the safety regulations set out for Class-A buildings. So there were no gas lines!

We really need to wake up to the facts and ask questions. If we don't, what does that say about us?

Sorry about the sync loss with the audio. All of these news clips are available elsewhere on YouTube as well as in the archives of the main news media sites.

Sarah Palin puts gun crosshairs on our congressman Chris Carney, among others:






Richard Connor: He rode in from secessionist state of Texas to buy the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader to make it "Fair and Balanced"!

Keeping in line with rightwing/Republican/conservative veiled threats, Richard Connor's editorial is entitled:

Ah, for the days when pistols settled politics Richard L. Connor Opinion

Another gun-reference "coincidence"! This is exactly why I cancelled the Times Leader and subscribe to the Citizen's Voice.

Since Connor started running the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader, they've syndicated columns by rightwing nutcakes Ann Coulter, Mona Charen, and George Will. TL broke the story of Republican Don Sherwood choking his mistress, then endorsed Don Sherwood over Chris Carney after Conor took over...as well as endorsing nutcake Rick "Man on Dog" Santorum. Then when the TL staff voted to endorse Obama over McCain/Palin, Connor was nice enough to force them to re-vote after giving them a "Gipper" speech. The staff still voted for Obama. THAT is what rightwingers call "democracy": when the owner of the paper calls a re-vote on Obama and tries to persuade the staff to change their minds!

Fake liberal Steve Corbett of local talk radio station WILK ignores the Sarah Palin crosshairs of Chris Carney AND Richard Conor's gun reference in his editorial "Ah, for the days when pistols settled politics Richard L. Connor Opinion". He never met a Republican he didn't like, and uses his show to attack only Democrats. And he voted for Sarah "Crosshairs" Palin, and is supposedly anti-gun...but ignores these two current stories. NOW...if Joe Biden says "FUCK", that's a different story! Corbett will devote an entire week to that...or if Obama says "SWEETIE" to someone. That's important, not Sarah Palin thinly veiling an incitement to violence by putting Chris Carney in crosshairs of a gun! Corbett is anti-violence, too...under certain circumstances. It's going to ring pretty hollow the next time he says he's a big anti-gun liberal, isn't it? Just more FAKERY. Corbett: I think Biden said "FUCK" again, better get right on it. Corbett seems to be more interested in a candidate having a vagina or not, rather than a candidate being liberal or not. When Hillary was beaten, he switched to Sarah Palin. Palin is the farthest thing from liberal to come along in a while, being an evangelical, a secessionist, and wildly pro-gun among other things like...you know...putting Democrats in gun crosshairs. And get rid of the outdated Hillary promo, it's over with and annoying. And little kids saying "you better listen", I'm sure there's little kids listening to a talk show on the radio. Liberals don't keep reminding you they're liberal, they let their actions speak for themselves and let others call them liberal based on those actions. The same goes for people who go around always broadcasting that they are "patriots" and wearing red, white, and blue and waving flags all the time and having their screeners tell you to say "you're a great American" before you say something to them and putting the word "freedom" in the name of your shill organization. If Steve Corbett is a liberal, I have a bridge to sell you...it'll be available soon, it's on 8th Street in Wyoming. They're almost finished knocking it down. The only show worth listening to on WILK's strictly rightwing lineup including Rush Limbaugh, is the Nancy & Kevin Show. Turn the channel off after that, or turn the radio off.

She and her boyfriend had nothing but problems from the neighbors there, they think they run the entire block. They called the cops twice on my daughter for having music too loud (it wasn't) and parking in front of their house, and they park in front of our house way more. I've had the house on the market now for a few months, we're selling it. Well guess what???????? 10 Mexicans who came in ONE old car and didn't speak good English were looking at it yesterday!

Why are health insurance companies IMMEDIATELY looking for ways NOT to cover sick children???

The findings follow a year of such smears and attacks on Obama by conservatives. Fully 24% of Republicans believe that "he may be the Anti-Christ" and 22% believe "he wants the terrorists to win."

Editor’s Note: Oklahoma-based journalist Richard Fricker was with his wife on a spring-break vacation to Washington when he came face to face with the Tea Party furor.

SARAH PALIN & THE TINY TEA PARTY MEDIA DARLINGS:

This should get 24x7 LIVE coverage on all the networks: Sarah Palin will lead the Tea Party Express into Harry Reid's hometown. 10,000 are expected, and if THREE networks covered Sarah Palin LIVE in February when 600 people were there, imagine the network coverage for 10,000!!! NOW...if there's a liberal protest of OVER 200,000 like this past Sunday, THAT will receive ZERO coverage from the networks. BUT IMAGINE THE COVERAGE OF 10,000 WITH SARAH PALIN!!! Christ! 10,000 Tea Partiers would be like 10 MILLION anti-war protesters!!! But they wouldn't be covered, either. The Tea Partiers and Sarah Palin even get ADVANCE NOTICE in the media of UPCOMING protests, let alone ZERO COVERAGE!!! Did you have any advance notice in the media before March 21: "IMMIGRATION REFORM PROTEST COMING UP SUNDAY MARCH 21"? Of course not!

ABOVE: Sarah Palin, the much larger anti-war protest, and the much larger immigration protest - BOTH of which were IGNORED by the media in favor of SARAH AND THE TINY TEA PARTIERS, who never met a WAR they didn't like!!!

Here's some clips from the NATIONWIDE/WORLDWIDE anti-war protest last Saturday March 20, that the corporate owned media they want us to think is "liberal" IGNORED:

Zionist Organization of America: Obama’s Israel stance ‘an insult’ to all Jews

The Obama administration was able to present the struggle as one between healthcare “reformers” and far-right wackos looking to wreck his presidency. All this was done in the service of protecting the insurance companies from the serious critique offered by single-payer.

This guy makes more sense than any politician I've seen:

Did you ever wonder how someone got elected, and no one you know voted for them? Faith-based, non-provable voting system for the greatest country?

Electronic voting machines found in court of law to be manipulated...that means ALL electronic voting machines across the nation can and are being manipulated, and it's not the #1 nationwide story in the "news"! Corporations OWN the news media and MAKE the electronic voting machines with secret proprietary software that citizens can't look at. Votes are counted in secret and electronic voting machines can't be recounted. Faith-based voting that can't be proven in a black electronic box! Your votes are meaningless, if they can't be proven or recounted. There is no paper ballot to recount. You touch a screen and then can't see the vote in the machine. The SCREEN isn't your vote, you know! It's inside the machine and you can't see it, and it can't be recounted. For those of you who don't trust government, why aren't you screaming about this? TeaBaggers? Liberals? Everyone???

This falls under my theme that the corporate owned media serves: the elite wealthiest few, the military industrial complex, and corporations. These Kentucky Fried Creeps HACKED ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES AND THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ISN'T COVERING THIS!!! Another theme of this blog is that our democracy is a SHAM because of electronic voting machines. I provide proof after proof after proof of this, and it is ignored by the government and the media. THIS AFFECTS EVERYONE! It affects Republicans, Democrats, and all other Americans - IT AFFECTS ALL AMERICANS! OUR VOTES DO NOT COUNT WITH ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES!!!

LOOK: They are GUILTY in a court of law for manipulating electronic voting machines!!! And it's not in the news!!! WHAT...THE...FUUUUUUCK???????

(Irony of ironies: this is the EXACT SAME COUNTY that census worker was found hanging with "FED" written on his chest!!! What's going on in Clay County??? Kentucky: home of Jim Bunning, the Republican who holds up unemployment checks all the time...)

Heinous Claims Regarding Sean Hannity's 'Scam' Charity

University of Ottawa's letter to Ann Coulter:

Dear Ms. Coulter,

I understand that you have been invited by University of Ottawa Campus Conservatives to speak at the University of Ottawa this coming Tuesday. We are, of course, always delighted to welcome speakers on our campus and hope that they will contribute positively to the meaningful exchange of ideas that is the hallmark of a great university campus. We have a great respect for freedom of expression in Canada, as well as on our campus, and view it as a fundamental freedom, as recognized by our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

I would, however, like to inform you, or perhaps remind you, that our domestic laws, both provincial and federal, delineate freedom of expression (or "free speech") in a manner that is somewhat different than the approach taken in the United States. I therefore encourage you to educate yourself, if need be, as to what is acceptable in Canada and to do so before your planned visit here.

You will realize that Canadian law puts reasonable limits on the freedom of expression. For example, promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges. Outside of the criminal realm, Canadian defamation laws also limit freedom of expression and may differ somewhat from those to which you are accustomed. I therefore ask you, while you are a guest on our campus, to weigh your words with respect and civility in mind.

There is a strong tradition in Canada, including at this university, of restraint, respect and consideration in expressing even provocative and controversial opinions and urge you to respect that Canadian tradition while on our campus. Hopefully, you will understand and agree that what may, at first glance, seem like unnecessary restrictions to freedom of expression do, in fact, lead not only to a more civilized discussion, but to a more meaningful, reasoned and intelligent one as well.

I hope you will enjoy your stay in our beautiful country, city and campus.

Sincerely,

Francois Houle,

Vice-President Academic and Provost, University of Ottawa

When there's a Republican president, all the laws they make are 'good for you', when it's NOT a Republican president, they're 'shoving laws down our throats'. It's the SAME EXACT THING, over and over. But you know what? The same things are said about Republican administrations, even more so, it's just that the people against the government don't get voices in the corporate owned media they want us to think is liberal, so it SEEMS like Americans think it's fascism only when there's not a Republican president and administration. It just SEEMS like it's more crisis when it's not the Republicans in power because of their media monopoly. Turn on your radio and who is on but Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mike Savage, and every rightwinger you can think of. Turn on your TV and who is on but Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney, Newt Gingrich, any available Republican even though they're in the minority, and every fringe rightwing lunatic. Pick up your newspaper and did you WON'T see there was an immigration protest in Washington DC last Sunday that had over 200,000 protesters because it received virtually ZERO coverage in the mainstream media. And the day before that? A huge anti-war protest in DC that received virtually ZERO coverage in the 'liberal media' (lol). When Sarah Palin spoke at a Tea Party in February in front of 600 people, THREE CHANNELS CARRIED IT LIVE!!! Folks, there's enough Americans of all stripes angry at all presidents and administrations from BOTH parties, but I think there were far more when Bush was president...but you wouldn't know it from the mainstream corporate owned media that wants us to think they're liberal. Just about everyone I know is FOR the health care bill, and would like it to go even further towards single payer or free health care for all American citizens from birth to death. But you wouldn't think that, watching the mainstream media focusing on a few Tea Partiers and the minority Republican Party. The right has a 'NOISE MACHINE' in place, THEY are always on it calling it 'liberal', THEY OWN it, it's not a 'bunch of liberals' who OWN the mainstream media, and they want us to think it's 'liberal' and not realize the SHAM of the 'liberal media'. It's THEIR media! About five corporations OWN the mainstream media, and the last time I checked, corporations aren't liberal! Republicans and rightwingers are IN THE MINORITY, but the 'NOISE MACHINE', THEIR media they want us to think is 'liberal',  makes everyone think they're in the majority at all times even if it isn't true."

Congressman tries to raise money for yelling ‘baby killer’ during health debate

On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about Obama: Two-thirds think he's a socialist, 57 percent a Muslim—and 24 percent say "he may be the Antichrist."

A Fireside Health Reform Chat With My Right-Wing Mom

Just what we all thought: While tea party activists have described themselves as political free agents disgusted with both parties, a new poll by Quinnipiac University shows that a majority have a close connection to the GOP.

(see my David Frum posts from yesterday, too!!!)

Former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum has resigned from the right-wing American Enterprise Institute, Frum announced on his Web site Thursday afternoon -- a move which suggests the conservative movement has cut ties with Frum over the straight talk he has been providing all week.
