Is The Media Hiding The Truth?

February 23, 2012

Last nights GOP debate was hosted by CNN in Arizona.  During the questioning of the candidates, the issue of birth control was raised to the candidates by the CNN reporter.  In a time of spiraling gasoline prices that threaten to reach $5.00 a gallon,  not one question was asked by the media members on the spike in gasoline.  The candidates had to bring it up themselves.  The media panel also ignored the present administration’s involvement with “Fast and Furious”, a program approved by Obama’s Attorney General, (Eric Holder) allowing federal authorities with ATF to sell automatic firearms to Mexican drug cartels in Mexico.  It has now turned into a government coverup, with Holder refusing to turn over memos generated by his office pertaining to “Fast and Furious”.  The program resulted in the killing of a Federal agent with one of the automatic firearms sold to the cartel by ATF!

Back in 2007 when candidate Barrack Obama was running for President.  Not once was he ever asked by the mainstream media this question:  Why as an Illinois  State Senator, did you not support  The Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA)?  It was never raised as an issue by the media, anyone hearing about it heard of it from bloggers on the right.  So why today does the mainstream media think it so important to report on a candidates view on  birth control?  Is that more important then America’s economy  reeling from over regulation by government,  out of control deficit spending, and high energy prices, all because of Obama’s failed policies?  Or is it because the mainstream media chooses to keep these issues hidden from the average American voter?

Fairness Test

February 8, 2012

Please take a few minutes to answer the following (9) questions asked by Stephen Moore in an article he writes about the fairness issue, that is the current mantra of the Obama administration.  The questions are short and to the point.  The answers you provide may surprise you if you share the same opinion of the far left.

1.   Is it fair that those who took out responsible mortgages and pay them each month have to see their tax dollars used to subsidize those who acted recklessly, greedily and sometimes deceitfully in taking out mortgages they now can’t afford to repay?

2.  Is it fair that thousands of workers won’t have jobs because the president sided with environmentalists and blocked the shovel-ready Keystone XL oil pipeline?

3.  Is it fair that some of Mr. Obama’s largest campaign contributors received federal loan guarantees on their investments in renewable energy projects that went bust?

4.  Is it fair that federal employees receive benefits that are nearly 50% higher than those of private-sector workers whose taxes pay their salaries, according to the Congressional Budget Office?

5.  Is it fair that soon almost half the federal budget will take income from young working people and redistribute it to old non-working people, even though those over age 65 are already among the wealthiest Americans?

6.  Is it fair that in 27 states workers can be compelled to join a union in order to keep their jobs?

7.  Is it fair that nearly four out of 10 American households now pay no federal income tax at all—a number that has risen every year under Mr. Obama?

8.  Is it fair that Boeing, a private company, was threatened by a federal agency when it sought to add jobs in a right-to-work state rather than in a forced-union state?

9.  Is it fair that our kids and grandkids and great-grandkids—who never voted for Mr. Obama—will have to pay off the $5 trillion of debt accumulated over the past four years, without any benefits to them?

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s Betrayal!

February 3, 2012

The other day Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made public comments about Israel’s plan to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, even giving a time frame between April and June of this year.  He said Israel will attack before Iran has the opportunity to reach the zone of immunity for its nuclear program, which is a term for when Iran hardens all of their nuclear operations underground making it safe from attack.  Secretary Panetta in short released top-secret war plans that had been discussed with him by Israel!

Obama’s administration over the past 3 years has taken a much different approach towards Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East.  Israel has been threatened by Iran’s nut job leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly vowed publicly to destroy Israel, based on Iran’s hardcore religious beliefs. Why would the Secretary of Defense make public a top-secret mission vital to Israel’s survival?

Israel’s leaders have every right to be outraged over the betrayal of their national security.  Why would Israel ever trust this Administration again? Anyone with a military background understands the importance of keeping military plans secret in order for them to succeed. Ironically, America has an Army Private on trial for divulging military secrets via Wiki-leaks.  How is Panetta’s release of Israel’s national security secret plans any different?  It seems pretty obvious the release of Israel’s war plans was done purposely by the Obama Administration for political reasons; his political base has never supported Israel.  Panetta should resign or be fired for releasing this top-secret information to the media, and America should be very embarrassed for betraying a good friend in the Middle East!
