I'm heading for bed, but before I do so, I would just like to offer a prayer for what's left of America. Not a prayer of the usual kind. My prayer this evening is that God is still watching over this great nation. That He hasn't given up on us, quite yet. What we are facing and what we are yet to face, needs His guidance and His gentle Hand. Even if you no longer believe in Him, what have you got to lose? Say a prayer this evening for America. You just never know. One thing is for sure. The Hand of God was upon this nation when it was founded. It has been upon us all these years until just recently. Whether you are religious or not, you would have to admit that things have changed recently. Maybe the changes we have permitted in our lives, caused those things to happen. Maybe I am just foolish. Maybe you know better. Could be. I just know that when I pray, I"m not taking any big risk. By praying for a solution to this madness, I can't lose. If my prayer is not answered, I am no worse off and neither are you. On the other hand, you just never know.
Same thing here in Canada most media arts types come from liberal arts programs in leftie universities taught by college professors who make Biden look like Einstein
We used to think colleges and universities represented the very finest thought and the best research possible on the planet. We depended on it, in fact. As it turned out, it was only an assumption. A ruse, if you will. To our detriment, an incorrect assumption. How many of you have watched endless hours of public television? Don't worry, I am as guilty as any of you. I loved most of the major productions they presented. They were well done and entertaining. I enjoyed them immensely. Because I was supposed to. How could you not, really? But, inserted in between the wonderful presentations, was a message.
"Those nasty Republicans don't think like we do. It is only through Public television and National Public Radio, that we can continue to save human dignity and save the human race."
What Toon said. It's real, folks. Take off your blinders and wake up. We have this one last chance this coming November. We mess this up, this country is history.
Here's a hypothetical for you. Your son is graduating from high school. You've saved for his college education. He doesn't want to go to college. He's been offered a job driving a garbage truck right now, that pays twenty-five dollars an hour. So you say, "but son, I want you to get a college degree, maybe in Law. You might end up being a United States Senator someday. Maybe even Vice President. Then you offer Joe Biden, as an example. By this time, of course, your son is rolling on the floor in laughter.
Hmm. Miller says people don't react to Bidenisms they way they used to. Really? Does she have any examples of which ones the media reacted to?
I remember Biden being a buffoon at the Thomas hearings and all the "reaction" was to Thomas.
6 to 7 THOUSAND Polish Catholics walked on Aug. 10-12, 2012 from Chicago via Munster, IN, to Merrillville, IN (two days)...
A few leftists protest something somewhere - ALL MSM stations show it
RS, thanks for posting this.
FYI - Jim Pinkerton has absolutely no regard for Sarah Palin, believing that she is an idiot, etc., etc.
Of course the lamestream media ignores the "gaffe kings remarks" (Biden). If it was a republican they'd have it on every hour on TV and every day in the liberal newspapers.
They don't call Biden the "Delaware Dummy" for no reason. Do you really want this guy to have his finger on the red button? It is bad enough we have an idiot currently with his finger on the button. Remember Biden or OBama have never had a real job.
Scoop, off topic here, but I think you need to pick up the story over on the Blaze about Obama's half brother. We should start a charity here in the states and send him some money. Obama would sure have trouble dealing with the media frenzy over that one.
What media frenzy? Though you have a great idea, the msm will go to great lengths to keep that story out of the public eye.
They have bo's back.....
Badbadlibs, I agree they would try, but it might not be that easy. If you watched the video interview of him on The Blaze, you can see he is a very relaxed, likeable individual. I don't think there is any love lost between him and Barack Obama. It might not take much to get him to do some more interviews. Fly him over here first class, put him in a nice hotel and sign him up with Hannity or Greta. He speaks fluent English and appears smarter than his half-brother.
Is she kidding me! Has she got blinders on!, or is she just catering to the left stream media in case her stint on fox news ends. The latter I feel is the answer. and while I feel Fox news channel is slowly slipping into the abyss of appeasement, and pseudo bipartisan coverage.
This is one of the reasons why we need to have conservative billionaires and millionaires invest and create their own Broadcasting companies in order to get our message out to the masses. " Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty." Thomas Jefferson
If the MSM took a corner too fast Biden would get a broken nose. A host on Fox radio had a good point: According to the libtoids every conservative candidate/office holder is either stupid, too old or evil.
Reagan was such a threat he was stupid, old and a little evil.
Romney and Ryan can't be accused of being old or stupid, therefore they are eeeeevil.
It's late, I know. I'm headed for the pillow, myself. Just wanted to thank you all for being here. I visit a lot of sites. Not a single one of them is like this one. Trust me, not one.
What a pleasure to be here. You guys are great. I would ordinarily say that anyway, but tonight, I feel like saying it twice. I just came back from a stint over on Conservatives4Palin. I'm not exaggerating, when I tell you that was a real experience. Scoop, I now know what you meant with your, "Palinistas," comment. Except for a few, those people over there are beyond help. I won't go into details, because I know some people share membership on both sites. Those of you who do, can make up your own minds. One thing is for sure, I will never go back there again.
We sometimes disagree here and that is understandable. Each of us is different. But, as different as we are, we share a common goal. To protect the Freedom of the Republic. Frankly, I have never seen a site quite like this site. Everyone here is polite, fluent in the English language and compose their thoughts and present them in an atmosphere of respect for others. Do you know how rare that is, in the blogosphere? I surely hope so.
Scoop has a policy against discussions about C4P, I will herefore hold my tongue with this exception. I have friends at C4P that I value and appreciate. Some of the most spirited debate used to be found in their open forum. Some of the writing was excellent, as good as any found here or at American Thinker. Doug Brady comes to mind, along with posters John Frank, Virginia Gentleman, Technopeasant, Brianus, and several others who also post here. I am less fond of the moderators there. I am, however, even less fond of those that hurl pejoratives against fellow conservatives, names like "Palinistas" used in a demeaning way.
W5, not sure many know that about the C4P rule. About a month ago a post here at Scoop regarding Governor Palin ignited a firestorm when it got off topic and onto the subject of what was happening at C4P. Many long time posters got banned there, including myself. I got banned for a good reason, using profanity, calling one poster what Dan Akroyd called Jane Curtain. Others were really ripping the C4P mods. I did my share of ripping them too but to their faces, one epsecially, for which I was not banned. I can't complain in that regard. Scoop had to close down the threat and imposed the new rule.
Free, I don't like the name either, but having been subjected to it for a brief time, I do understand how it came to be. I agree with you though and i won't use the name again.
"It's hard to decide which is worse, their tortured defense of democrat duplicity or their steadfast refusal to acknowledge it," quote Lisa Fabrizio.
I have asked this before, but never got a good, definitive answer. Maybe this current topic would be a good time to ask again. Here it is. Why are all the media outlets, including television, newspaper and even Hollywood movies, controlled by the Progressives? I know we have Fox News, but most of us agree even Fox News is questionable because of the ownership. Murdock and the Saudis, I believe.
If we are such a nasty bunch of money-grubbing rich people, why don't some of the more wealthy among us, own at least a few of the media machines in this country? At least that way, we wouldn't have to march into battle with the Liberals every day, while limping on crutches. Maybe a bad analogy, but you get the idea.
It's called Cloward and Piven, designed to overwhelm the system, but you can't do it unless you demoralize the population. To demoralize, you need to infiltrate every organization to control the message. Women's and homosexual rights went a long way to ensure infiltration. The fear of religious bigotry pounded into people was very effective at demoralization.
In 1972, when I was a freshman in high school, there were two teachers in particular, one was a Miss and the other was a Mrs. After the summer, when I returned as a sophomore in high school those same two teachers became Ms. It was obvious to me that they had attended some kind of seminar or other training over the summer that had changed their views. They were no longer teacher but indoctrinators. The girls got special treatment while the boys were disregarded as much as they could without being obvious.
If I saw it 1972 the infiltration had been going on for some time. It has only snowballed since then with the unions taking over public education and parents shut out of being a part of childrens education decisions and the left replacing History and Geography with Social Studies. I home educated my five children, I wan't about to have them filled with Ritalin and be indoctrinated with leftist theology.
Although in many ways some of my kids are still taken in by news, movies, and the influence of friends they still have a base of truth to work on and they have me continuing their education of conservative principles.
The first thing we need to do to fight the left is getting the truth out by word of mouth. Second, at the polls. Third, and 2nd most important is changing the thinking of parents who have been raised in the public schools, so they know how to raise their children. And the most important is keeping the Lord first and foremost.
Fabulous post toon, thank you. How I admire your home-schooling of your children - they are well armed against indoctrination.
I wonder if the 70s saw the maturation of the commie infiltration that was uncovered before and during the Joe McCarthy years - timing would be about right, given the skillful spinning of those identified as 'victims', a canard that still persists. We can thank Hollywood both for the spinning and the perpetuation of the victim status. The Great RR formally left the democrat party in 1962, asserting that it had left him, not the other way round, so it didn't take much time for the indoctrinators to gain their footholds. He saw it up close, to our great but too brief benefit.
I strongly believe in the influence of the 'soft communism' of the Frankfurt School of thought. It's founders fled Germany when Hitler came to power, and set up shop at Columbia University in 1935. They set out very clearly that the only way to corrupt the then moral and God-respecting USA was to denigrate both morality and religion publicly and relentlessly. The upheavals of the 60s saw the fruition of their aims while providing perfect cover for their followers (who were a decade later installed in the universities and positions of political power, and who groomed successors to continue the indoctrination) and the 70s saw the attack on morality via the so-called feminist movement. You could say it's been all downhill since then, with sexual license for youthful, inexperienced minds the easiest route to corruption. Existentialism on a mass scale for the West. Throw in the UN, NATO, IMF and now the World Bank and other pretenders to world power, and here we are.
It will take close scrutiny of locally elected officials, and the will of the people to correct the results we are now seeing, and that is a daunting task for folks who already struggle just to survive. But it must be done. America is the only country that has a chance of countering the present culture by virtue of its incomparable Constitution.
I tend to rattle on about this Frankfurt movement - hope you will forgive this long reply - but one does feel a sense of urgency at the moment, doesn't one?!
You and I agree on the indoctrination of millions of Americans through our media and our educational system. How to reverse the process is the hard part.
I was very mad at Glenn Beck after he had his meltdown on Judge Napolitano's show over Newt. But, many months later - he is still offering real news that are not Saudi approved!
Newt is the only Republican with teeth. Anyone who would choose to debate Newt Gingrich, is a hopeless idiot.
There was an opportunity to break the strangehold when NBC Universal went up for sale. Of course, one liberal fascist organization GE passed it safely into the hands of another, Comcast, whose CEO, Brian Roberts, is a flaming leftist. Here's a photo of Obama going to visit Roberts with Valerie Jarrett in tow. Setting: Martha's Vineyard:
Dan Quayle never misspelled potato. Potato is correct with an e or without the e. Whereas Biden is just as stupid as my 2nd son. And That is PLUMB STUPID. Senators by the way should have there terms limited to 4 years. That is where Biden comes from.
Maybe you can spell potato either way you want to, but there is definitely a proper spelling for the possessive "their"...and it is not "there". Senators should have THEIR terms limited to 4 years. (I only bother to point out the error because it appears in a post that calls not one, but two people "stupid".)
I guess we have to take what little we can. Meanwhile, I'll keep waiting for Obama to get some harball questions and some flack for his gaffs.
Actually Jim, any question for Obama is a hardball question, because he's not an intellectual person. He is, however, a product of the Chicago Cesspool of Political Strategy. Any question you ask him, triggers an immediate response and he launches into another speech about why he is so great and you just don't understand.
During the 2008 campaign, all it took was one guy, called, "Joe the Plumber," to turn Obama's world upside down for a week or more. I'm sorry, but I enjoyed that more than anything I have seen for a long time.
He recovered, of course and he told his handlers, "don't you every put me in that position again, if you want to keep your job."
If the Republicans were really smart, which they aren't, they would look for ways to put Obama in the spotlight more than they do, without the benefit of the teleprompter or a canned speech, following a planted question, which is the way it usually goes down. He's not good extemporaneously. Romney's not either, actually. But Ryan is, thank God.
By November, they may have completely destroyed the race card as a strategy to secure votes and silence opponents... I just saw Instapundit post this related item on this topic:
I guess we have to take what little we can get. Meanwhile, I'll keep waiting for Obama to get some hardball questions and flack over his gaffs.
I agree with the idea mentioned here, that some in the Liberal media may be edging back from the brink on some of the more outrageous Liberal statements thrown out there. Do you think it might be that as more and more people get their news from alternate sources, the future of Journalism as a career, just might be in jeopardy and they're starting to realize it? Continuing to donate time and energy to help promote the Leftist agenda might not be good for their financial future at some point.
There have been a couple of other recent examples of Liberal media types being a little more aggressive with our friends from the Left. I'm sure there will be more. At least I hope so.
I actually don't mind Kirsten Powers much of the time. She does tend to take each issue on its merit instead of always spewing the typical liberal rants. I think she's more reasonable than most of the far left. She's one that I do respect even when I wholeheartedly disagree with her. And there are times I want to smack her upside the head. (not literally, of course)
We all know if Ryan or Romney would have made ANY remark considered controversial they would have been hammered night and day! This idea just because Biden is gaffe prone is BS!! They minimize it to protect the Marxist!! It is pathetic but telling! Biden is an incompetent BOOB! and the MSM covers him because if it was played correctly the President would been hounded by it! The Double Standard is sickening. The Dems have been and will always be the Racists and Bigots!
Why shouldn't people start questioning Biden mental acuity? The man is getting up there in age and he could have the beginnings of dementia or even alzheimer's. And to think that this guy is still only one heartbeat away from the presidency should scare the daylights out of anybody. Ryan is going to wipe the floor with Biden during the dabate. I can't wait to see that.
Biden is a serial plagiarist. He failed a college course for plagiarism. He was forced to drop out of the 1988 Presidential race for allegations of plagiarism, to which he admitted.
He has really had examples throughout his career. It's just that they don't pay attention to Senators on the national level -- and only in state if there is a reasonable opponent (like Mourlock pointing out Lugar (IN) hadn't lived in the state for 30 years.) There are lots of Senate examples of Biden's lack of mental acuity especially at foreign policy.
