Modern Media And The Destructive Representation Of Conservativism

 

William Warren

 

 

” Although rightfully excoriated for his comments comparing public unions to ISIS, Gov. Scott Walker’s (R-Wis.) treatment by the media continues to highlight the gross disparity in the way with which conservative candidates are analyzed and represented, when compared to their liberal counterparts. Whereas Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton are all hailed for their various policy proposals, as well as their personal and professional achievements, individuals like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are ruthlessly assailed for every quip or comment, be they contextual or otherwise. 

  This was patently evident in 2008 as well as 2012, and will most assuredly be applicable once again in 2016. From tales of Mitt Romney’s elementary school bullying, to reports about Paul’s “Aqua Buddha” college days, the depths to which modern media apparatuses will dredge in order to invalidate a Republican’s candidacy, surpasses even those explored by the Trieste. This is highly problematic, as it only takes an anonymous comment, erroneous claim, or an unverified accusation, in order to destroy the legitimacy of a right leaning contender. This same approach however, would be understandable if it were equally applied to both sides of the political aisle, but seldom is that ever the case.”

 

 

    The Hill , not exactly a bastion of neutrality itself , discovers mainstream media bias … Watch your heads for falling porcine poo .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heck of a Job Barack

“President Obama has said that elevating the image of the United States around the world was one of his proudest foreign policy accomplishments, but those remarks could boomerang and hamper his reelection bid.

The violence and anti-American protests throughout the Middle East are bringing fresh attacks on the president’s foreign policies as Muslim rage is intensifying in the region.”

“GOP platform adopts Internet freedom plank

“Republicans vowed to fight against efforts that would give international or intergovernmental
organizations more control over the Internet in their party platform, approved on Tuesday. “We will resist any effort to shift control away from the successful multi-stakeholder approach of Internet governance and toward governance
by international or other intergovernmental organizations,” the platform reads.

More evasion , lies and deceit from our most open and transparent administration . These people make Nixon look like a choir boy .

  “Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee have again asked the Obama administration to provide all copies of work-related emails that were written or received on personal email accounts, after their 2011 request was met with no reply from the White House.

   Republicans have argued since last year that despite the Obama administration’s pledge to be open and transparent, many White House
officials are using personal email to conduct work, and are even holding meetings outside government buildings to avoid disclosure of some of this work. They particularly noted that
Messina was known to use his personal email when working with labor union representatives
when the White House was working to pass the 2010 healthcare law.”

  …Oh yes , that would be the recurring theme of the past 4 years .

“The Obama campaign sought to downplay fundraising expectations on Monday as some top donors expressed exasperation that the
president had been outraised for the third month in a row by Mitt Romney’s campaign.”

Smart Move

House votes 256-171 to extend all Bush-era individual tax rates

 

  “The House approved GOP legislation late Wednesday that would extend all current tax rates for another year, and also turned away a Democratic bill that would have allowed rates to rise for higher income earners.”

Shhh, don’t tell your employees their jobs are in danger .

   ” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and other Republicans pointed to guidance
issued Monday by the Department of Labor that said it would be “INAPPROPRIATE” for defense
firms to issue layoff notices to employees before
the election due to the pending cuts.

“The president doesn’t want people reading about pink slips in the weeks before his election, so the White House is telling people to keep the effects of these cuts secret — ‘Don’t tell anybody,’ he says, ‘keep it a secret’ — until, of course, after the election,” McConnell said on the Senate floor Tuesday. ”

  This is how the dems look after the working man . Don’t give them any warning that their job is on the line til after they vote .

  Open and honest my ass ..

  ” Lockheed Martin CEO Bob Stevens pressed the issue last month when he threatened to issue
layoff notices to all 123,000 of his employees on the Friday before the election due to a provision in U.S. labor law requiring large employers to notify employees 60 days in advance of layoffs caused by a foreseeable event.

   Trade groups have claimed 1 million defense jobs could be at risk from the pending cuts, which are known as sequestration and were triggered by the failure of a supercommittee of lawmakers to reach a debt deal last year. “

Credit Where Credit is Due

The Hill Poll: Majority of voters blame president for bad economy

 

  “Two-thirds of likely voters say the weak economy is Washington’s fault, and more blame President Obama than anybody else, according to a new poll for The Hill.

It found that 66 percent believe paltry job growth and slow economic recovery is the result of bad policy. Thirty-four percent say Obama is the most to blame, followed by 23 percent who say Congress is the culprit. Twenty percent point the finger at Wall Street, and 18 percent cite former President George W. Bush.”

    Leave it to New York’s nanny in chief to try and make political hay on top of bodies yet to be laid to rest .

    Why is it that for every tragedy or senseless act that comes to pass , politician/nannies must use it as an excuse for further state intervention .

    Last I knew murder , whether mass or individual was not within the scope of the highest office in the land . Isn’t that what we have police for ?

  “Bloomberg has been an outspoken supporter of gun control. “I mean, there are so many murders with guns every day — it’s just got to stop,” he continued. “And instead of the two people — President Obama and Gov. Romney — talking in broad things about they want to make the world a better place — OK, tell us how. And this is a real
problem. No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them concretely, not just in generalities — specifically, what are they going to do about guns?” “

If you doubt that Obama and the dems really believe that you don’t deserve to keep what you and your family have earned then read this .

  “Senate Democrats, meanwhile, have prepared a broad tax-plan package that would return the
estate tax to the 2009 levels of a 45 percent rate for estates, with a $3.5 million exemption, while extending Bush-era rates on family income up
to $250,000. ”

   That’s right … The left figures that after a lifetime of sweat , toil and sacrifice and being heavily taxed on every dollar you make , that when you die your heirs are only entitled to just over half of what you’ve built up .

   You read that correctly … You need to give the state 45% of everything that you have already paid taxes on for the privilege of dying in America .

   The hypocrisy of the crocodile tears from progressives about the disappearance of the family farm is thus explained .

….. my cold , dead fingers

” The National Rifle Association (NRA) warned the United Nations on Wednesday that the effort to
craft international rules for weapons sales will go nowhere in Congress if it includes civilian
arms.
   Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the powerful lobby group, said 58 senators have pledged to oppose
the treaty if it covers civilian weapons, fearing an infringement of America’s gun rights. ”

“The Obama administration has not ruled out supporting a treaty that covers civilian weapons. “

This gang of statist traitors to the republic must be voted out !!

  The Hill
No real surprise here until you get to the end .

” Two-thirds of likely voters say President Obama has kept his 2008 campaign promise to change
America — but it’s changed for the worse, according to a sizable majority.

   A new poll for The Hill found 56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way, compared to 35 percent who believe the country has changed for the better under his leadership. ”

   What is difficult to fathom is the fact that 35 percent believe we have changed for the better .

Where do these people live ?

The Hill

”  At least four Democrats say they will vote Thursday in favor of placing Attorney General
Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.Democratic Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Collin Peterson (Minn.) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.) will all
vote in favor of contempt in addition to Rep. Jim Matheson (Utah) when the measure comes to
the House floor on Thursday. “

Divide and Conquer

From the Hill comes encouraging news regarding the fractious nature of the Balkanized Democratic coalition .

   “Divisions in the Democratic coalition have burst into view, endangering both President Obama and his party colleagues in Congress as November’s election nears.

Fissures have opened over everything from tax policy and former President Bill Clinton’s  off-message comments to recriminations following the party’s  fiasco in the Wisconsin recall, which some say should have been avoided. “
