PostSubject: It's a Wrap - Most Underreported Stories of 2009   1/1/2010, 9:45 am

No one should miss reading this. It reflects everything I read before, and how I feel:

Its a Wrap: The Most Underreported Stories of 2009by Dana Loesch
This year saw the birth of the tea party movement, the rise of administrative radicalism, and a suppression of information unlike ever before seen. Were it not for the new penny presses, blogs and the investigative citizens who author them, much of this information would be six feet under. When the media goes state and becomes nothing more than an echo chamber for the government, the task of sharing truth falls to the original keepers of liberty: the American people.



These are the most Underreported Stories of 2009:

1. CLIMATEGATE
Al Gore needs something to sustain him and his big pimpin’ life down at his ginormous, energy-sucking mansion in Tennessee. Thus the green market was born, a made-up market chock full of products like carbon credits and other Willy Wonka (but not as cool) ish items for people to buy as a way to feel good about themselves and their contribution to the planet without having to actually do anything. They don’t need a God! They need a Prius!

Celebrities Botoxed within an inch of their lives began popping up in PSA’s about global warming, about how we need to drive inefficient clown cars that run on electricity (which is still produced in coal-powered plants but hey, whatever) to save the planet. Musicians like Sheryl Crow crowed about using just a square of toilet paper to remove waste that has a greater street value than her latest album. All the hubris manifested in regulations handed down from Congress upon the automobile industry, the coal industry, et al., until finally! Cap’n Trade appeared in the House.

Cap’n Trade will rape and pillage your energy bills and even boss you around when it comes to remodeling or rehabbing a home. It’s almost like … congress has nothing better to do.


Then … there was Climategate. Russian hackers revealed emails from a British university (whose edicts on global warming are included in the U.N.’s decision-making process on climate) which showed that the scientists basically had no idea what they hell they were talking about but they did know that their original assessment of increased global temperatures was unsupported by data, thus, “hide the decline.”
2. THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT
I feel bad for the staffer that had to check Nancy Pelosi’s pants after over a million tea party protesters marched past her window on September 12, 2009.

The tea party movement sprung from plain old disenchantment, disappointment, and outright anger at being fleeced by a government who mistook their primary job as being “spend cash mon-nay” rather than execute the Constitution. What began as a few groups of several hundred people gathering in the cold back in February morphed into a movement so big that now talk of PACs and third parties (total crap idea, that latter) are commonplace and a Republican candidate has no hope of winning an election without the tea party support.

The most misreported and misunderstood thing about the tea party is its political leanings. The tea party has no political leaning. It stands straight for limited government, low taxes, and liberty for all. Disagreement with those tenets is an accidental admission of socialism on the part of the antagonist. The beauty of the tea party movement is that it is independent and thus a true check and balance of the Republican and Democrat parties. It’s not a pawn of the GOP, thus untouchable in criticism of the Democrats – I view it as an unattached conscience of the Republican party.

The tea parties have been smeared, and while some haven’t helped against the charges of astroturf due to their worship of both God and money, the movement is pure.

A new version of the Minuteman has sprung from this movement: the patriot activist with the Gadsen flag on her shoulder and a video recorder or camera in her hand.

3. FORT HOOD AND ISLAMIC EXTREMISM IN THE U.S.
A guy with a history of terrorist activity (the FBI had been watching him for months) and bent on mass murder screams “ALLAHU AKBAR!” before shooting a pregnant soldier point-blank at a military base and the media would rather cover its genitals like a dog and cower in the corner rather than define the terrorist as a terrorist.

Rather, the media interviewed people who said that shooter Malik Nadal Hasan had “trouble fitting in” and isn’t it so sad how he was treated differently because of his religion? Lightbulb moment: hey! Perhaps he was treated differently because he felt prejudiced against his fellow soldiers whom he viewed as infidels who should die?

Hasan had “soldier of Allah” printed on his business cards, for crying out loud.

Nevermind that he was a participant in Obama’s transition Homeland Security team. Oops!

4. ACORN and SEIU
Only in America can you offer to help smuggle in underage sex workers as part of your description as a taxpayer-funded “community organizer” and still get federal dollars after the scandal breaks. James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles exposed ACORN for what it truly is: a malignancy that consumes the life out of depressed areas that it never, ever improves, ever, all in the name of making residents dependent upon the teat of government welfare so as to exploit them for votes later”neighborhood organizing.”

Michael Walsh explains the repurcussions of the dynamic duo’s work:

The Senate voted 83-7 in favor of de-funding the controversial group. The House voted 345-75 to cut ACORN’s funding, and more than 20 states have demanded either a full investigation of ACORN or that they lose their funding. The IRS also ended up cutting their connections to the group.

O’Keefe and Giles made a mockery of the media who retaliated by refusing to cover the story, further hammering the last nail into their own coffin.

Despite all of this, Big Government wrote how after this egregious corruption, Democrats like Roland Burris still found a way to push for continued ACORN funding by slipping a provision requiring such in Harry Reid’s senate fauxcare bill.

SEIU shares #4 with SCORN (typo and it stays) after several of its purple people beaters attacked Kenneth Gladney (a black street vendor who I’d previously seen selling pro-Obama buttons at Obama’s Arnold, MO townhall) at Russ Carnahan’s townhall in Mehlville, Missouri after profiling him and assuming him to be a black conservative. One of the country’s most shocking and underreported race-provoked attacks grew worse when his brother, Keith Gladney, spoke out in his brother’s defense and is said to have been canned from his job two days before Christmas as a result.

At the time of this writing neither Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or President Obama have offered to arrange a beer summit between Kenneth Gladney and Andy Stern.

5. HCR COVER-UP
The majority of the country opposes Harry Reid’s Senate bill but nevertheless, Reid bribed it through. Government media served as a mouthpiece for the administration and its policy on fauxcare, giving the President multiple hours of free network prime-time hours to peddle his snake oil on the airwaves.

The Senate vote marks the turning point in our government where those elected to represent the constituency failed to do the jobs for which they were placed in office. It was a vote of tyranny, not of representation.
6. NEA
The White House is attempting to mimic Leni Riefenstahl by rounding up those in the arts and entertainment industry and using them as the vehicles through which President Obama can peddle his agenda, I wrote back in September. Big Government combed over this scandal which went completely ignored by the media. Union baby Buffy Wicks, from the Office of Public Engagement and Serve.gov, the NEA, and others joined a variety of artists and promoters on a conference call, the goal of which was to figure out how to create propaganda to support Obama’s policies.

Big Government Editor Mike Flynn expounded further on the scandal and reminded readers how Wicks used the Serve.gov portal as a way to funnel volunteers to ACORN and other pro-Obama organizations, at taxpayer expense.

Jinkies! Looks like artists are going to have to work harder and nab more photos that other people have taken so that they can do cheesy, tri-color alterations to them that pass as pretentious, overrated and quasi-Photoshop Level 1 “art” to the people whose discernment went off the rails.

7. DHS, NAPOLITANO TARGET DISSENT
While the Department of Homeland Security and Janet Napolitano were busy marking down the names of veterans, grandmas, and college kids who waved the military-authorized Gadsen Flag or questioned Obama’s policies in public as “possible domestic terrorists,” real terrorists were already in our country, shooting up our military bases and attempting to detonate planes. Michael Savage, himself the target of the British government based upon his dissent, filed suit against Napolitano in April over DHS’s “right wing extremist” report. The charges stated:

“It is a civil rights action brought under the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution, challenging the policy, practice, and custom of the United States Government that targets for disfavored treatment those individuals and groups that are considered to be ‘rightwing extremists.”

Under the Obama administration, the government has brazenly trained its eye on those who respectfully question the government. Liberals who complained over the Patriot Act demonstrated their devotion to party over liberty by going silent as their American brethren were targeting for doing no more (less, actually) than they the liberals did under Bush.

7. KEVIN JENNINGS – FISTGATE
It wouldn’t be right if our current administration broke tradition with nominating completely inept radicals to high positions of power (gotta pay off those political favors!) and lucky for you betting types, that streak wasn’t broken with Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings.

Ah yes, the Three Rs and One F of education: Readin, Ritin’ and ‘Rithmetic. Oh, and Fisting. The required credentials for such a post:

Jennings was appointed to the position largely because of his longtime record of working to end bullying and discrimination in schools. In 1990, as a teacher in Massachusetts, he founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which now has over 40 chapters at schools nationwide. He has also published six books on gay rights and education, including one that describes his own experiences as a closeted gay student.

Behold, the comedy gold:

“Jennings was obviously chosen for this job because of the safe schools aspect… defining ’safe schools’ narrowly in terms of ’safe for homosexuality’,” Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council, told FOXNews.com.

“But at least half of the job involves creating drug-free schools, and we’ve not been offered any evidence about what qualifications Jennings has for promoting drug-free schools.”

Jennings’ detractors note that he made four references to his personal drug abuse in his 2007 autobiography, “Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son: A Memoir.” On page 103, discussing his high school years in Hawaii in the early 1980s, Jennings wrote:

“I got stoned more often and went out to the beach at Bellows, overlooking Honolulu Harbor and the lights of the city, to drink with my buddies on Friday and Saturday nights, spending hours watching the planes take off and land at the airport, which is actually quite fascinating when you are drunk and stoned.”

Er … oops? Nobody’s perfect, but it just seems practical to maybe not glorify drug use in your book while trying to get a job which requires you to keep schools and kids drug free. Too obvious?

Oh, but then came the revelations as to what GLSEN’s recommended reading actually included and Katy-bar-the-door. It was discovered that at a GLSEN conference (in conjunction with the MA Department of Education no less) elementary school kids were taught how to engage in sex acts.

Gateway Pundit reported mercilessly – as I’d hoped that anyone who cared about the well-being of our schoolchildren would do – about the “recommended reading” list Jennings chose for GLSEN and young schoolchildren which included graphic descriptions of rest-room sex and more.

State media was silent and liberal sites, such as Media Matters, defended Jennings.
8. VAN JONES
Van Jones signed his political death certificate when he signed a 9/11 truther petition stating that he believed that our own government took down the Twin Towers and not terrorists, the petition brought to light by Gateway Pundit. Of course, under an administration that refuses to even use the language because it may hurt the feelings of suicide bombers and be judged as “divisive,” one can see how Jones might not understand that the terrorists are actually our enemies.

The radical environmental czar (a one-time STORM participant, a Marxist organization) and admitted communist in the Obama administration was forced to resign, further tainting the judgement of the administration, who later admitted to not having vetted Jones well enough.

The disparity between the eerie silence from state media and the raucous exclamations from the blogosphere was expected but sad nonetheless.
9. OBAMA’S LACK OF SUCCESS
Don’t expect to see much media criticism – even if it’s objective and deserved – of our infant Messiah president. The media has a lot invested into him and they unofficially hung the last shred of their validity on his success. It’s not to say that conservatives don’t want a successful president; we define success differently than liberals. Conservatives want the United States to be successful in foreign relations, we want a thriving economy, success in maintaining individual liberty, all the good stuff of which America is made. Conservatives don’t want to see plans to nationalize and thereby socialize the private sector because the very irony of such economic strategy is that it hasn’t been successful in multitude of countries in which it’s been implemented.

Conservatives aren’t the only ones questioning Obama’s trajectory; he’s been sliding in the polls since spring; the majority of Americans disapprove of his march on health care reform; yet the media downplays all of this because they’ve gambled it all on the success of this political neophyte who quit his job as a senator so he could hightail it to Washington. (What was that the left said about quitters?)

The media’s complicity in shoring up a failing president has given an excuse for the current congressional body to repeatedly ignore the will of the people. Blogs are the new penny press; corporate media is dead.

Happy New Year!

No, they're not. Certainly not in a list that starts with the abysmal failure that was supposed to be the Climategate controversy.

And the teabaggers under reported? The media was slathering all over such public displays of stupidity even outside of Fox News. Any group that warmly embraces birthers or concerns about "death panels" is definitively not interested in truth and honesty. So I guess if anything was under reported, it was correcting their bullsh!t that was.

And number 7 is the completely manufactured controversy on that old DHS Report? Seriously? Like, for real? Laughing I'd link to my discussion of that nonsense with Happy but it appears to be missing.

Read back. Hertic, explain. Especially #7.

As far as I know, tea baggers joined together as one, but lack a leader. I only said I was a tea beggar because that's the only way to take back our Constitution.

You couldn't PAY me to vote anymore...cuz they are all full of pig poop. Our political system is no longer for the people. It's for themselves. Local, state, national. They are unethical in preserving what made people vote for them in the first place. They have too many servants...they're all full of poop.

Self-serving, "all about me" poop. I'd rather go with a clean conscious and defy what is no longer rep or demo. They (the parties are no longer about upholding the constition. It's now about wearing J-crew, where they go and why didn't Obambie's wife plant a garden while in Chicago? All about "show and tell" once they get servants in Washington. The whole lot stinks. Rep or Demo. They all suck every dime they can, pretending they are working for the very people that support their salaries. They can kiss my butt when they throw parties every week, fly in guests, have guests fly in to join them on vacation, and how much real time does this farcus of a piece of POTUS spend on national and worldwide events?

I'll tell ya...Tiger Woods put in 18 times that amount in one game that the stinking POTUS put in in helping the USA in one year. He can stick his club up his azz, and put Michelle in the zoo to mimick an ape and serve the public in the same capacity as they serve our nation right now.

If Hillary had won, or McCain, you wouldn't see the circus you see today. Whether you liked them or not. This guy, Obambie is a circus freak, getting paid to do nothing.

All show and tell...and BLING. They suck, congress sucks and YOU KNOW IT.

Sorry. The thread wasn't pulled after all. To see what kind of a joke the criticism of April's DHS report is, read here. The entirety of Happy's posts are missing, but I quoted the relevant bits in my responses so they're still readable.

I could rally behind the teabagger cause, because much like you, I'm horribly disappointed with the political theatre as it stands today. However, unlike most teabaggers, I've been horribly disappointed for more than 8 yrs now, and I'm able to convey such disappoint without resorting to completely fabricated and nonsensical conspiracy theories, mindless appeals to socialism/Marxism/Nazism, and the whole host of retarded arguments in between, relying instead on logic, reason and evidence. Let's not forget that the "teabagger" movement is largely comprised of individuals who supported the same unconstitutional behaviors from the previous administration that they now condemn the current administration for using. Hypocrites, the lot of 'em. And it makes their objections now remarkably disingenuous. They're merely puppets playing their part, and someone so disenfranchised with the process as yourself should be able to see that.

And I would think that would distance you from the actual "teabagger" movement, whose aim seems to be nothing more than "vote Republican", or more specifically, "vote for Beck approved politicians." For example: Palin and Bachmann are the heroes of this movement. Shocked

And I've told you this before: If it took Obama to cause you to lose faith in politics, then you simply haven't been paying attention. Our political system hasn't been "for the people" for decades. Expecting him to completely sort things out is nothing short of delusional.

Sorry, no. Obama is President simply because every four years we have to pick one. Things are in bad shape for reasons that have little to do with what political party is in office, and much more to do with finite resources and exponential growth in a finite planet. However, I do think we're in better shape with Obama than we would be with McCain and his reality-denying, poorly chosen, creationist sidekick; Obama has no ideological difficulties in acknowledging our reality, unlike his opponents. You have little hope in solving any problems if you cannot correctly identify them.

Yes, but I'm also not an idiot, which exempts me from being a teabagger too.

Oh, will cast my votes...it won't necessarily go for the same "OLD". I'll vote for the most qualified, no matter the party.

Except, we have NO PARTY that differentiates between REPO and DEMO. Therefore, when I cast a vote, this time, it's going for the right person, not the party or "the less of the evil."

I've never met a POTUS as crooked as Obama. Say goodbye to him, if not in three more years, but maybe sooner, because he is NOT QUALIFIED other than playing golf, bowling, having weekly parties, having the typical "czars" like Rudy Clay appoints his bodyguards, yet the whole city gets gunned down...and you can kiss my flat azz....the nation is headed for a hell hole.

At least McCain would have acted like a president. Could you imagine his wife and him partying, taking vacations, etc? Can't recall all the good things his wife did even before he ran for his campaign, which she reluctantly gave into.

At least McCain wouldn't be in HAWAII if some American airline got threatened. No sir. He'd be exactly where he belonged, young children or not...in the White House protecting the nation he was elected to protect.

Instead, he's playing golf, demanding a free day at the beach (fluck the public, even though he could have demanded any other day of the week and his wish would be their command), and taking in "Avatar" long before the public gets to enter, and oh my, what news do we hear as if a bomb landed on Hawaii? A child-friend got knicked in a surf-boarding accident!!! You know how many accidents we get involved in that doesn't even make the news? Screw you, Obama.

I hope they finally settle down to real life in the White House. Ya, know? Not having parties, acting like a first lady, without her JCrew crap, and even though those children haven't been in the news, they request "privacy".

Like at Martha's Vineyard...you could take a pix if the POTUS was taking the kids for ice cream. Something a lot of American kids jump for if their parents could afford it. I could go on and on...all I see is a President with BLING...that comes naturally from Chicago culture.

Pretend to care, work your way up, and get the hell out of Chicago, but don't forget the crooks that got you there.

HE SUCKS. HE and his excuses for parties, weekly parties, beer summit, town hall meetings addressed after he's a POTUS, not focusing on fifty states, and his stupid attention-grabbing crap about his kids being "off-limits". He did a fine job using them while campaigning. Typical bling-block/black.

Just like the typical basketball player, Jordan and the golf-pro, Tiger. No amount of money can make them change and they all take money over family, use family to get there, once there, they are the typical idiots.

Won't be long...watch....Obama will fall down like Tiger. They don't know how to keep the barnyard door close to keep the mule out. They're STUPID.

Yes,the only question would be which one of his 7 houses the parties would be at. McCains Bought Second Beach Condo At Around Time McCain Said Struggling Homeowners Needed To Skip Vacations oh,and did you forget Cindy's 300,000 outfit at the RNC?
Quote :
Cindy McCain

Like stealing from her charity for feed her drug habit? McCain admitted, she had stolen the drugs from the American Voluntary Medical Team, her own charity, and had been investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Quote :

Sure he would. He'd be vacationing at 1 of his multi million dollar properties or somewhere else equally as plush. Oh,and what's your beef with Hawaii? It's a US state.

So the leader of the free world should just blend in with everyone else? Never mind security,right?
