Fear Of A Black President: Conservative Media Drumming Up Racial Fear (the FAKE "liberal media" CNN - YOU are an IDIOT, if you think CNN is "liberal"!)

Civil rights expert: ‘Birthers’ only ‘racists or extreme right wingers’

Rightwing media publications:

Billionaire Rupert Murdoch loses $50 million a year on the NY Post, billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife loses $2 to $3 million a year on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, billionaire Philip Anschutz loses around $5 million a year on The Weekly Standard, and billionaire Sun Myung Moon has lost $2 to $3 billion on The Washington Times.

Why are these guys willing to lose so much money funding "conservative" media? Why do they bulk-buy every right-wing book that comes out to throw it to the top of the NY Times Bestseller list and then give away the copies to "subscribers" to their websites and publications? Why do they fund to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars a year money-hole "think tanks" like Heritage and Cato?

The answer is pretty straightforward. They do it because it buys them respectability, and gets their con job out there. Even though William Kristol's publication is a money-losing joke (with only 85,000 subscribers!), his association with the Standard was enough to get him on TV talk shows whenever he wants, and a column with The New York Times. The Washington Times catapulted Tony Blankley to stardom.

Conservative Media vs. Progressive Media

"Fellowships" and other forms of indirect sponsorship of right-wing talk show hosts have made otherwise-marginal shows and their hosts ubiquitous, and such sponsorships of groups like Norquist's anti-tax "Americans for Tax Reform" regularly get people like him front-and-center in any debate on taxation in the United States.

All so they could run a tax con on the American people, thus keeping Moon and Murdoch and Scaife and Anschutz (and others) richer than you or I could ever even imagine.

All of this money was spent - invested, really, since it's been more than saved back in low income tax rates on millionaires and billionaires - to convince Americans that up is down and black is white when it comes to income taxes.

Here's how it works:

The Emanuel family has longstanding and passionate ties to Israel.

Emanuel's father, Chicago-area physician Dr. Benjamin Emanuel, suggested in an interview with the Tel Aviv newspaper, Ma'ariv, that his son's appointment to the White House will be good for Israel.

The Jerusalem Post, a respected English-language newspaper, this week reported an account of the senior Emanuel's remarks in the Hebrew-language Ma'ariv:

"Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel," Dr. Emanuel was quoted as saying. "Why wouldn't he be? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House."

Obama mistakenly picked a non-criminal to head up a financial-related post!

Will Neil Barofsky "disappear", because he's doing his job? Small aircraft accident, maybe? Car "accident"? "Suicide"? Maybe he'll just get fired, because he's really doing his job. Or he'll "resign".

Neil Barofsky, the chief watchdog over the $700 billion TARP bank bailout program, is one of those rare creatures in Washington: he takes very seriously his responsibilities of independent oversight and accountability. A career prosecutor, Barofsky is a life-long Democrat who donated money to Obama's presidential campaign. But ever since he was appointed to head the oversight office created by Congress when it enacted TARP -- an office designed to ensure transparency and accountability at the Treasury Department and in the banking industry -- he has repeatedly clashed with Obama's Treasury officials over their lack of transparency in how the trillions of dollars in TARP-related funds are being sent to and used by the banking industry. So seriously does Barofsky take his oversight duties that, as a Washington Post profile noted in March, "he refuses to eat with senior administration officials in the [Treasury] building's executive dining room to maintain his independence."

He was never elected to anything, yet is always on FOX "news" for his opinion on EVERYTHING! As if Americans need to know William Kristol's opinion on everything. William Kristol is another multi-millionaire who doesn't need health care and can pay CASH for any medical procedures, including 6-figure operations. He doesn't give a SHIT about YOU or our soldiers! His father is the "father of the neo-cons", Irving Kristol. And he is a founder of PNAC. William Kristol, as you can see above in Bill Moyers video on health care, is a propagandist against health care for all Americans. He won't tell you that the #1 country in his heart, Israel, has national health care and at U.S. taxpayer expense! Why doesn't someone who's interviewing William Kristol, ask him what he thinks about Israel having national health care for all its citizens, and the U.S. being the only country that doesn't cover all its citizens, and why is this multi-millionaire media misinformer fighting against the American people with no health care? And why is he on TV all the time? It's time to take back our country from people like William Kristol! Chickenhawk William Kristol: never met an Arab country he wasn't pushing America to attack on behalf of Israel! Never met an American without health care that he didn't want to attack with his FOX "news" channel!

Big Dan's Big News July 26, 2009

Special note:

How come nobody...and I mean the news, ever mentions the FACT that Israel has national health care? And WE are the ONLY MODERN COUNTRY that doesn't cover all of its citizens with National Health Care???

Health care in Israel is both universal and compulsory, and is administered by a small number of organizations with funding from the government. All Israeli citizens are entitled to the same Uniform Benefits Package, regardless of which organization they are a member of, and treatment under this package is funded for all citizens regardless of their financial means.

How come these pro-Israel/anti-universal health care MULTI-MILLIONAIRE MEDIA MISINFORMERS never mention that Israel has national health care, just like every other country except us??? These creeps are MILLIONAIRES who don't need health care, they could pay CASH!

Cheney Tried to Deploy U.S. Troops on U.S. Soil, Yoo Delivered the 'Legal' Memo to Say He Could

In 2002, Dick Cheney and David Addington urged that U.S. military troops be used to arrest and detain American citizens, inside the U.S., who were suspected of involvement with Al Qaeda. That was done pursuant to a previously released DOJ memo (.pdf) authored by John Yoo and Robert Delahunty, addressed to Alberto Gonzales, dated October 23, 2001, and chillingly entitled "Authority for Use of Military Force to Combat Terrorist Activities Within the U.S." That Memo had concluded that the President had authority to deploy the U.S. military against American citizens on U.S. soil. Far worse, it asserted that in exercising that power, the President could not be bound either by Congressional statutes prohibiting such use (such as the Posse Comitatus Act) or even by the Constitution's Fourth Amendment, which -- the Memo concluded -- was "inapplicable" to what it called "domestic military operations."

Bill Maher: "Not everything in America has to make a PROFIT" (the real important points continue to be made in comedy...)

Stop saying "The media isn't doing their job"! They're doing their job perfectly! The FAKE "liberals" (ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN) and FAKE "conservatives" (FOX/Limbaugh/Hannity/Beck/O'Reilly) are doing perfect PROPAGANDA, ultimately all of them speak for: the elites, the government, the military, and corporations! While "appearing" to give you the choice between "liberal" and "conservative"!

One of the most important videos you will see is below. It's a revelation you must discover: the media isn't "liberal". Yet, we're told it is. Where are the "liberals" in the liberal media? Where's Ralph Nader? Where's Cynthia McKinney? Where's Dennis Kucinich? Where's Bernie Sanders? Where's Howard Zinn? Where's Noam Chomsky himself, who's in this video? You don't even know who he is, if you only watch the so-called "liberal media"! Who's on the "liberal media"? Liz Cheney, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, more Republicans than Democrats...even though the Democrats hold all the branches of government. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Glen Beck, .... The media is slanted, but it's slanted "right". It's essential for the "right" to keep claiming it's "liberal". Think about it stays the way it is! The "liberal media" speaks for elites and conservatives, watch the video below.

Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky demolish one of the central tenets of our political culture, the idea of the "liberal media." Instead, utilizing a systematic model based on massive empirical research, they reveal the manner in which the news media are so subordinated to corporate and conservative interests that their function can only be described as that of "elite propaganda."

The Myth of the Liberal Media: The Propaganda Model of News (nice find, z!). Even if you "think" you're a conservative, you should watch this, because YOU, too, are being "played like a fiddle" to believe the media is that you will then believe the FAKE conservatives.

...but if the mainstream media full of FAKE liberals, you need a bunch of FAKE conservatives to call the media FAKE liberals..."liberal": that everyone is fooled by the entire media, which ultimately only serves the interests of the elite, the government, the military, and corporations! If you pick the FAKE conservatives, you're legitimizing BOTH sides, and vice versa. And really, they're on the SAME SIDE!

Now, that is not to say, there's never anything "legit" on TV "news". If I post something here, like the following, it's been determined by the TRUTH SQUAD here that this is "legit news" and they actually "did their job". But ultimately, when push comes to shove, they're all on the same side. You have to train yourself to wade through the propaganda, it's an art!

Bill Maher: "When did the profit motive become the only reason to do anything? When did that become the new patriotism? Ask not what you could do for your country, ask what's in it for Blue Cross/Blue Shield."

Bill Maher New Rule: Not Everything in America Has to Make a Profit

(bd: disclaimer - I hate Ronald Reagan and I am FOR socialized medicine, single payer, this is just another reason I hate "the Gipper". Here's who's against single payer: rich people and people who currently have good, inexpensive health care, which is the extreme minority. Reagan also started taxing unemployment, think about that if you're on unemployment! btw...I know I'm not the only one with shitty/expensive health care, so all the propaganda in the world won't work in these times! What happened is, like in any profit industry, the health care industry just got too good at taking all our money and giving us less and less in return. I remember, not too long ago, I was paying $200/mo for Cadillac health care for me, my wife, and two kids. Now, we just switched from paying $1000/mo for only two people, me and my wife, to another company that's $800/mo and it's shitty - high co-pays, high deductibles, and they don't cover 100% of what they finally approve! We were rejected from lower cost health care, which really wasn't all that low, because my wife has a "pre-existing condition".)

From the 1961 Operation Coffee Cup Campaign against Socialized Medicine as proposed by the Democrats, then a private citizen Ronald Reagan Speaks out against socialized medicine. There is no video because this was an LP sent out by the American Medical Association. The "gipper" always had good health care, because he was filthy rich.

The problem with "birthers", is that it's so ridiculous, they are delegitimizing any valid criticisms of Obama, such as the fact that Obama/Geithner continued the corporate taxpayer bailouts begun by Bush/Paulson or that Obama has gone back on his word about single payer health care and he has an undeclared war going on in Pakistan and that he's SHOCKINGLY fighting to hide a lot of Bush-era corruption and continuing a lot of Bush-era policies...among other criticisms. It's almost as if someone in the Obama camp thought of this and is pushing it on television to make everyone who criticizes him seem "NUTS"! So, birthers are actually undermining people with legitimate criticisms of Obama. They allow Obama supporters to lump everyone criticizing him into the "NUTS" category. If you are a legit conservative, you should question the real reasons the "nutty" birthers are all allowed all over the mainstream media, including LIZ CHENEY. It's not for the reasons you think, in my opinion.

Ex-Fox News producer gets ten years for child porn

“Unfortunately, I am the victim and a witness to a crime in an ongoing investigation,” said GOP state rep Paul Stanley (no relation to the guy in KISS???). (bd: "...caused by me having an affair with a 22-year-old intern and then being extorted by her boyfriend"!)

It's only a matter of time, before a "family values" Republican gets caught in another sex scandal...Ensnared in Tennessee's own sex scandal tonight is Sen. Paul Stanley, the wingnut from Germantown who has crusaded to ban gay adoption of children and who once made the really stupid mistake of saying: "When you're married, there's a commitment there."

According to court documents, here's what happened: Stanley, who is married with two children, was accused of having an affair with a 22-year-old legislative intern, McKensie Morrison, by the woman's boyfriend. The boyfriend, Joel Palmer Watts. 28, discovered a computer memory disc with sexually explicit photographs of Morrison that appeared to have been taken in Stanley's apartment. Watts then blackmailed Stanley, demanding $10,000 in return for keeping quiet.

Christ! Can't Republicans keep it in their pants??? It's one thing to do this, but it's another thing to, at the same time, be preaching "family values" as you're doing this!!! And this guy calls himself the "victim"??? WE would ALL be "victims", if he were blackmailed for some other reason, like someone blackmailing him to sign a state contract for something! He put himself in that position, then claims he's a "victim"! Do you believe that? That clearly implies, that he thinks he should be able to cheat on his wife with an intern, and not be blackmailed for it...because that's not right!!! I think his wife and kids are the victims here! Not him! The only question remaining is: when will he pull out the "Jesus" playbook? As in: "You know, the Bible says King David cheated once..." ala GOP Governor Sanford. Or was that Ensign? I'm getting them all mixed up! I know one thing: I'm thinking of switching to the GOP, because they're all getting CRANKING CHICKS!!!!!!!!

Sen. Paul Stanley, Champion of Family Values, Caught in Sex-and-Blackmail Scandal

What makes this story different from several others the public has grown familiar with is not necessarily that Stanley, as a legislator, has been identified with a number of family values issues — introducing a bill while a House member that prohibited the showing of pornographic materials in a moving vehicle and taking a prominent role this past session in opposing legislation enabling adoption by gay parents.

Three Dog Night

Originally brought together in 1968 by Danny Hutton and Cory Wells, the group was enormously successful from the start. Hutton, who had graduated from loading and unloading records at the Disney studio to recording as a solo artist, met Cory Wells while he was touring with Sonny and Cher. The now-famous name came from a story about Australian aborigines who, on cold nights in the outback, sleep with their dogs for warmth. The coldest evenings are known as "three dog nights".

Boasting chart and sales records that are virtually unmatched in popular music, THREE DOG NIGHT had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top 10's, 18 straight Top 20's, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs. Their hits appeared on best selling charts in all genres (pop, rock and country). Their records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Tens of millions of THREE DOG NIGHT records have been sold through the years.

THREE DOG NIGHT recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of their time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others. The group's eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in THREE DOG NIGHT dominating best-selling charts for years. From 1969-1974, nobody had more Top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

These guys are great! Three Dog Night (present) doing "Mama Told Me Not To Come", then flashback 1970. Cory Wells sings as good as Joe Cocker! And no one knows it!
