Gotta just shake your head.... MSNBC is actually complaining that Romney is helping with the disaster relief efforts.

So, Michael Brown, Bush Jr's FEMA director, who was praised by Bush for doing a "heck of a job" with Katrina, has slammed Obama for... moving too fast in dealing with Sandy. Apparently, getting supplies where they were needed in time to be ready to be used is bad.


At the same time Newt Gingrich criticised Obama for cancelling several campaign trips in order to deal with the aftermath of Sandy.


Do conservatives these days even want for people to take them seriously?

You mean like MoveOn.org's new comercial?


...or Obama not cancelling fundraising trips when our people were being killed in Benghazi?


You want me to list about 100 other "liberal" sources that are just plain wrong and un-American?


While Brown should have kept his mouth shut, he could be right. But I guess that could be beside the point.

I wonder if the rumor is true that the White House has ordered the Lamestream Propoganda Machine not to expose the Benghazi cover-up...

what a loaded question.  most people become innured over time to the thrump and beat of the media they gravitate toward and ingest every day, which is the media that reaffirms and explains their peculiar world outlook.  


most people won't admit it, but they never feel the inner pull to acknowledge any self-doubts about the veracity of their own beliefs.  it's a lot easier to gravitate toward the ongoing spectacle of the triumphant news of their own daily affirmation via the media.  


it is not easy to entertain doubts about your basic beliefs, and to begin to explore those doubts.   for instance, many people here don't ask "am I really correct about the content presented by Fox News?   is it in fact made up of political lies or am I crippled by my failure to see the channel for myself with an open mind?"  the questions are not asked.  


not EVERYBODY constantly trusts their preconceived notions and feels able to pass sentence on news sources they've never read or watched.  when their views ARE changed  by actually seeing and judging the content for themselves, they simply stop posting on websites like preprogrammed robots about what a huge liar this network or that network is.  


the truth is that people either quietly see things for themselves and make sound judgements OR they make hasty fearful judgements based on no facts and rudely shout into silence any person or thing that questions them.   


of those so near, which are you?

>How long will it take for Americans (and folks in most other developed countries) to finally understand that the major media is not liberal or conservative - it is corporate.  Commercialism has totally ovetaken unbiased discussion of public affairs (news).  And they feed us their propaganda constantly!  This is how they control elections.  Corporations continue their constant agenda to control government, and they are succeeding, so far.

from earlier in the thread.  there IS a corporate entity, but it's not a private business corporation in the traditional sense.   the corporation is more a conglomerate of opposing power brokers who incorporate or join together around their shared interests.  


the power-sharing political group known as the "Illinois Combine" is a prime example of this REAL corporation which run things.  It is made up of highly placed officials connected to both the Democrat and Republican parties, and their corporate goal is to build and maintain the political machine that guarantees their power, and rigidly controls who shares in it. 


so, yes.  that kind of corporation is bad.  washington dc INSIDE THE BELTWAY with its alliance of long-serving elected officials and ensconsed public sector administrators and employees, is absolutely another similar CORPORATION.    so let's back off of ADM and Apple and Microsoft, ok?

MSNBC accidentally publishes election results showing that Obama wins


 


 


Oops: MSNBC Accidentally Calls Election for Obama Early


 


 


While that may indeed happen, they might want to wait for the actual event .... unless they're either clairvoyant or they've helped rig the election (the second one wouldn't surprise me.)

Yep... Obama and his administration lies for days that it was caused by some video and refused to address it as terrorism by radical muslims.....  The media doesn't let everyone know that the security force that the administration hired to protect the ambassador were al-Qaeda...  And the media sits on information that the administration is running guns to al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood....


I'm just wishing that congress does its job (but I seriously doubt it.)


The lamestream propogranda machine lost its way a long time ago - instead of exposing corruption, they're complicit in covering it up.

So Obama refused to call the Benghazi attack "terror." So what? Terror attacks are supposed to inspire terror. All the Benghazi attacks did was give Americans something else to argue about.

Exactly. Aside from lying to the American people (saying a video caused it all) I could care less what was called what.


 


The real issue here is why was security removed amid reports that organized terror groups were on the rise, why was help not given when asked for and why, if you are going to leave them there naked like that, didn't we just pull them out? You know, like the brits did?

So what about the protests that swept across 20+ countries? Did that not happen? Was that all part of the "YouTube video" conspiracy? Does anyone remember seeing people throwing rocks through the windows of a Hardees? Was that orchestrated by Al-Queda?


And what about the original 9/11 attacks? Didn't Bush know Al-Queda was planning to attack? Didn't he lie about WMDs in Iraq?


How many people died as a result of his inaction and lies?

What is the real problem is the way it was handled. There were military forces across the way in spain waiting to go in, but they were never ordered to. The people in the counselate were wondering where they were.


The ambassador is killed, and imediately there's a big cover up. They don't acknowledge is was a terrorist attack, they repeatedly say it was a movie trailer on youtube that was posted in July, even though they knew withing 24 hours that was a terrorist attack.


Why didn't they send the military in? Why the cover up? That's the problem.

Yea... from the information that's being uncovered.... Obama said that he ordered them to be rescued, but no order was actually given.... and the military was actually activating a rescue operation and was ordered to stand down.


And within two hours of the attack, the terrorist group claimed responsibility for it.  Additionally, we had been forewarned about the attack (not to mention, this was 9/11.)  The CIA even put that information into the report, but the administration removed it.  (Love those paper trails.)  Government officials even watched the attack happen in real-time.


Oh, and why were there Libyan militia members being held at the CIA annex, in violation of Obama's executive order #13491?


So... aside from Obama running guns to al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, the ignoring of intelligence leading up to the event... and now the coverup..... This is Fast & Furious times Watergate times the Iran Contra times 1000.


What I see now is that the focus has been diverted over to the sex scandals instead of the terrorist attack.  (Oh.. and it appears that the administration actually knew that Petraeus was having an affair when he was being vetted for the CIA directorship over a year ago (and not 5pm on election day like they say)).... and BTW - why was a General, who had no background in intelligence moved over to become the new director of the CIA so he could replace Panetta so he could move over to the DoD as logic would dictate other choices?


 


Now if we were very idiotic and thought that Obama didn't know.... why hasn't he fired a whole bunch of people for keeping him out of the loop?  How did DNI Clapper have the authority to force Petraeus' "resignation" without first talking to Obama? Right.....


 


So, is this gross incompetence or a massive coverup?  It's quite obvious how much the lamestream propoganda machine is helping Obama keep the focus off the important stuff.  Thankfully some people outside the mainstream are continuing to ask questions.
