Why is it that none of the disturbed and evil men, who steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in school, have never been identified as a conservative NRA member?
Fred Pleitgen of the UK’s The Guardian reported that CNN refused to broadcast an award-winning documentary, “iRevolution,” that was produced in 2011. The documentary featured CNN’s on-air correspondent Amber Lyon and was critical of the regime in Bahrain for using violence against its own citizens who were peacefully protesting for democracy. The reason why CNN didn’t air their own documentary may shock you.
The Independent, a UK news source, reports the following:
“According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and ‘lockdown,’ under which movement is severely restricted.”
Friday’s disheartening jobs report doesn’t tell the whole story. The reality of just how disastrous the Obama economy truly is lies in the facts that are purposefully left out of the jobs report.
If I were to tell you that the government is going to take more money from you and that they were going to use the IRS to enforce it by hiring thousands of additional IRS agents to do it, what word would you use to describe it? Would it matter if I called it a tax or a penalty if it essentially does the same thing? Of course not.
Dr. Leon Hadar, an Israeli and U.S. citizen who advised Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul in his capaign in 2008, rejects characterization of Paul by ex-aide Eric Dondero as wishing Israel ‘did not exist at all.’
The Israeli publication Haaretz spoke with Dr. Hadar on Tuesday and he discounted Paul’s characterization as being anti-Israel, saying: “He is against Israel as I am against January. He is just against foreign aid, and does not see any reason to grant an aid to a country that is a member of OECD.”
“We should remember it’s the primaries, and the Republican party establishment is not happy about his popularity, because on many issues his positions run contrary to the traditional party’s agenda,” Hadar added.
The former aide also indicated that Rep. Paul was in favor of “economic cooperation with Israel.”
It turns out, according to the New York Times and NewsMax.com that Senator Schumer (Democrat) didn’t know reporters were listening to a conversation he was having with fellow Democrats. The reporters were waiting to interview him on a cell phone conference call and he didn’t realize that the call had started.
“I always use the word extreme,” Schumer told his fellow Democrats. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”
Rather than talk about issues or facts, liberals resort to name calling. After all, if you think the government shouldn’t be so massive that we can’t afford it and you think that the government should spend less rather than increasing taxes you are an extremist. And that name sounds so much worse than talking about the other part.
This at least shows major potential for liberal/Democrat bias that I and many others think is obvious. We wouldn’t select a jury where 88% of the jurors admitted they supported the plaintiff so why take media seriously who put their money where their mouth is to such a lopsided degree?
