Big Dan's Big News August 21-22, 2010

The Big Picture about FOX "news":

Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know.

The 'Ground Zero Mosque' and the Hypnotic Power of Republican Race-Baiting...

FACT CHECK: Islam already part of WTC neighborhood

Before the Mosque was bad, it was "OK" to conservatives back in this December clip...before they decided to flip the switch on their sheeple followers:

Here's when rightwing media and the GOP decided to flip the switch:

How the "ground zero mosque" fear mongering began. A viciously anti-Muslim blogger, the New York Post and the right-wing media machine: How it all went down

Instead of talking about the Mosque, let's talk about who let 9/11 happen: the Bush administration!

Charlton Heston back the Mosque:

From his cold, dead mouth, Charlton Heston supports the Mosque:

Charlton Heston: "It is forgotten that we are first, Americans. I am asking all of us on both sides to take one step back from the edge. Then another step. And another. However many it takes to get back to that place where we are all Americans. Different, imperfect, diverse, but one nation, indivisible. This cycle of tragedy-driven hatred must stop. Because so much more connects us than that which divides us. And because tragedy has been and will always be with us. Somewhere right now evil people are planning evil things. All of us will do everything meaningful, everything we can do to prevent it. But each horrible act can't become an axe for opportunists to cleave the very bill of rights that binds us. America must stop this predictable pattern of reaction, when an isolated terrible event occurs...Now, if you disagree, that's your right. I respect that. But we will not relinquish it or be silenced about it, or be told, "Do not come here. You are unwelcome in your own land." Let us go from this place, from this huge room, renewed in spirit and dedicated against hatred. We have work to do, hearts to heal, evil to defeat, and a country to unite. We may have differences, and we will again suffer tragedy almost beyond description. But when the sun sets on Denver tonight, and forever more, let it always set on We, the People. Secure in our land of the free and home of the brave. "

Well, actually it was his speech saying that despite the tragedy of the Columbine shootings, all gun owners shouldn't be demonized and they should still give their annual convention next to Columbine, despite cries of being insensitive. Just as conservatives won't tell about Republican president Eisenhower's "beware of the military industrial complex" speech, they won't tell you about this speech from their hero Charlton Heston:

In response to EdwardTeller @ 124

Thanks for your post EdwardTeller! I always love reading your diaries, and your comments. I would concur with your analysis. I didn’t want to start dishing out on Rayne, and in my comment I was not taking sides with anyone here. But I do make the same point as you. Perhaps this was a misunderstanding on the part of some as to Rayne’s intentions. Until I see my posts and comments “disappear” and my favorite links broken, I will not jump to the conclusion that Jane or FDL or Rayne have been targeted by CAMERA or the Foxman ADL or AIPAC or others to shut down the I/P debate. I will hope that no matter the pressure exerted by a foreign intelligence agency upon US Citizens to freely express their political opinions, trade in facts, and discuss relevant current events, that we will continue to resist such pressure and hold true to our First Amendment.

It is disturbing to me that a foreign nation can exert so much influence over our elected representatives. IT is no comfort to see that our largest media outlets can also be so easily bought and silenced. But when it starts to impact our individual rights as citizens to speak, then I think the real curtain starts to fall. People will begin to finally realize (who haven’t already) that something nefarious has taken place.

I am Jewish (well, the State of Israel won’t recognize it) as is my wife (who the State of Israel not only DOES recognize, but because she is a Citizen, my children are subject to being drafted into the IDF upon return at 18 if we don’t get them exempted). So, I know first hand how hateful and spiteful the regime in Israel has become on matters of Orthodoxy and “true” Jewishness. My marriage would not be recognized in Israel (well, none of my Rabbi’s marriages would be recognized there, even though he spent most of his adult life training and becoming ordained, and even though he is as “ethnically pure” as it gets… but because he wears the robes of the Reform tradition, he is not welcome).

I could go on, with more bitter herbs in my mouth over how “second-class” I’ve been treated by the Israeli consulate here in this nation, but I will leave it at that for now. Let me just say that the descent of Israel into this madness should be opposed by all of us within the Tribe or without (depending on who’s specific defintion of “Jewish” you want to use… mine and my wife’s, or the Orthodox rabbinate that now runs Israel). The same can be said for whose definition of Zionist you want to use.

I have a father in law in Israel who settled in the Kibbutz at the age of 15, with his future wife, fleeing a Germany that had itself descended into madness. He did not settle in ISrael and help found that Kibbutz on the grounds of racial superiority, hatred, or apartheid. He is in his last days, and he has openly said he wants to just be done. He is so tired and sick of what has happened to the nation he helped settle, he is so upset and feels betrayed by how much of the dream of a democratic, religiously tolerant nation has turned into a mirror image of what he fled.

Those are his words. Not that he has many words left these days. This was not what he fought for. And I have to agree. And I have to ask my fellow Americans if the current state of our nation is what we fought for? Is it what our ancestors fought for? Was the intimidation of America by an Orthodox Jewish rabbinate what we fought for?

The two states of America and Israel are not intricately intertwined with one another. Our fates are becoming collective and shared. We are fighting wars with American blood for the sake of Israeli regional hegemony. The left and more dovish members of the Israeli citizenry (and those denied such citizenship) are in the same boat as the “professional left” of America. Despised, vilified, and on the run.

So, until FDL shuts me down, I hold out hope that FDL is staying true to the mission, and I will give Rayne the benefit of the doubt that this was a misunderstanding through a digital medium and that the intention was not to shut down this thread. I notice we are all stilll posting and being allowed to use links, so my hope is being confirmed by the actions of the editor so far.

MATT SIMMONS dead - Heart attack WEAPON by the ELITES?

LA Times corporation sides with another corporation, Target, against's Target advertizement, and also adds that they were for the military against MoveOn's Petraeus ad. What a shocker! This blog is all about pointing out that the mainstream media is controlled and represents 3 things: the wealthiest, corporations, and the military industrial complex...and is not "liberal". "Liberals" don't own the mainstream media, 5 corporations own it. How many times have I said that? You can search my blog. So, what a shocker that the LA Times editorial backs Target and General Petraeus vs. MoveOn. I hope you are starting to believe me.

The LA Times thinks it's "distasteful" that MoveOn attacks Target for giving $$$ to an anti-gay candidate...but the actual anti-gay candidate and Target aren't "distasteful" and thanks to the activist conservative supreme court, corporations are "people" who can give unlimited $$$ to candidates, but that's not "distasteful" either:
