Obama’s Bump, Ctd

Tweet It’s real - and I hope doesn’t lead to complacency or excessive caution on the debt. I’ve repeatedly argued that Obama “needs to embrace Bowles-Simpson, or a variation thereof, and challenge both parties to come to a long-term budget deal he can sign.” Bernstein...

The Ulsterman Report: Once Again, Sarah Palin Emerges Stronger

The script had been formulated long before the first bullet of deranged shooter Jared Lee Loughner rang out just outside a Safeway in Tucson Arizona last week.  The liberal wing of the Democratic Party, still gnashing their teeth over the rebuke against them in the November Midterm Elections, were desperate for a scapegoat.  The equally liberal media were only too happy to assist them by once again failing to actually report the facts, but rather quickly make those facts up to more fully coordinate with the much-desired outcome - that the shooting in Arizona was the result of rightwing bigotry, vitriol, rhetoric…etc.

The primary target of these attacks, once again, was Sarah Palin.

It remains a mystery why Palin so enrages the left.  From one side of their mouth they attempt to marginalize her as an inconsequential moron, some Alaskan redneck former beauty pageant breeder of too many children.  At the same time, they declare her dangerous, cunning, a too-powerful figure corrupting the minds of mainstream America.  The many contradictions contained within the liberals’ hatred (yes, I am using that word - because it is appropriate) of Sarah Palin willfully goes unnoticed by them.  They simply march on, gleeful in their collective and repeated attacks against the former governor of Alaska.  Sarah Palin is a woman.  Sarah Palin is a conservative. Sarah Palin is Pro-Life.  Sarah Palin is pro-gun rights.  Sarah Palin talks of her love of God and country. Sarah Palin has the audacity to openly (and effectively) mock liberalismWe must destroy her.

And so on that terrible day last week in Tucson, these same liberals, politicians and media figures alike, grabbed from the same script and pointed to Sarah Palin as the murder weapon.  The deserving evidence?  Non-existent of course - but in the odd and emotionalized world of the liberal mind, evidence and facts are mere suggestions - the outcome is the only thing that truly matters.  Destroy Sarah Palin - by any means necessary.  For by destroying Sarah Palin, by blaming her for the killings in Tucson, liberals hoped to destroy the Tea Party, and the now growing conservative movement throughout the United States.  Grandiose you say?  Perhaps - but it is also true.

First to the scene were the liberal bloggers such as Daily Kos who took a map Palin utilized months ago targeting specific districts in the November elections.  This kind of map is nothing new, having been used by both Democrats and Republicans a number of times in the past.  The DNC utilized just such a map in 2004, and longtime Democratic Party strategist Bob Beckel admitted such mapping and the term “targeting” has been around as long as he has been in politics - and ironically, the Daily Kos had “targeted” Giffords’ district most recently, as they felt she was far too conservative to be trusted.  A long rant on the Kos blog stated repeatedly that Giffords was “dead” due to her vote against Nancy Pelosi.

The mainstream media though happily took its cue from the far left liberal bloggers and pushed ahead with the Palin election map.  Look!  Palin is the true killer!  Even as mounting evidence suggested the shooter had nothing to do with the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Fox News, or even politics as a whole, the media persisted.  Even though Congresswoman Giffords was well known by her District and inside the Beltway as a political moderate who had most recently voted against Nancy Pelosi as House Leader, the media persisted.  Even as former friends of Jared Loughner described him as a liberal radical who blamed former President Bush for 9/11, the media persisted.  ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC - all of them, hour after hour, insinuated the shooting was the by-product of conservative rhetoric, with Sarah Palin being held up as the prime example.  Far left New York Times columnist Paul Krugman made the case against Palin with his typical vacuous snideness, blanketing conservatives with the description of “hate mongers”.  John Nichols of The Nation was even more misleading with the facts than most, forging a full on misrepresentation of Jared Loughner as a far-right extremist upset over Giffords’ vote for Obamacare and taking cues from Palin’s now infamous statement that conservatives should not retreat but “reload” when battling liberalism.  Here is a video showing the appalling contradiction of media coverage regarding the Arizona shootings vs the Fort Hood massacre of a year earlier:

And what is the outcome of all of this concerted effort by far left liberals to portray Sarah Palin and conservatism as the cause of the Tucson Tragedy?  If anything, liberals have simply managed to once again further marginalize themselves in the eyes of America.  Conservatives are rallying to defend Palin, and with polls indicating the vast majority of the public recognizes the liberal slant blame-game that has been the coverage following the shooting, so too are many independents ignoring the liberal media and Democratic politicians.

As for Sarah Palin herself, she has again emerged a stronger figure than before.  Even Barack Obama, during his speech at this week’s Tucson memorial service, seemingly sided with Palin in dismissing the Far Left’s attempts to place blame outside of the singular actions of a deranged gunman.  Whether or not Sarah Palin can develop into a viable Republican candidate for President of the United States remains to be seen, but one thing is certain - as an ever-popular conservative voice, she will not be silenced.  She will repeatedly prove her worth in battling the liberal horde and revealing the insipid hatred always bubbling beneath the surface that is the mainstream media and DC politics.

Don’t retreat Sarah.

And so on that terrible day last week in Tucson, these same liberals, politicians and media figures alike, grabbed from the same script and pointed to Sarah Palin as the murder weapon.  The deserving evidence?  Non-existent of course - but in the odd and emotionalized world of the liberal mind, evidence and facts are mere suggestions - the outcome is the only thing that truly matters.  Destroy Sarah Palin - by any means necessary.  For by destroying Sarah Palin, by blaming her for the killings in Tucson, liberals hoped to destroy the Tea Party, and the now growing conservative movement throughout the United States.  Grandiose you say?  Perhaps - but it is also true.

First to the scene were the liberal bloggers such as Daily Kos who took a map Palin utilized months ago targeting specific districts in the November elections.  This kind of map is nothing new, having been used by both Democrats and Republicans a number of times in the past.  The DNC utilized just such a map in 2004, and longtime Democratic Party strategist Bob Beckel admitted such mapping and the term “targeting” has been around as long as he has been in politics - and ironically, the Daily Kos had “targeted” Giffords’ district most recently, as they felt she was far too conservative to be trusted.  A long rant on the Kos blog stated repeatedly that Giffords was “dead” due to her vote against Nancy Pelosi.

The mainstream media though happily took its cue from the far left liberal bloggers and pushed ahead with the Palin election map.  Look!  Palin is the true killer!  Even as mounting evidence suggested the shooter had nothing to do with the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Fox News, or even politics as a whole, the media persisted.  Even though Congresswoman Giffords was well known by her District and inside the Beltway as a political moderate who had most recently voted against Nancy Pelosi as House Leader, the media persisted.  Even as former friends of Jared Loughner described him as a liberal radical who blamed former President Bush for 9/11, the media persisted.  ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC - all of them, hour after hour, insinuated the shooting was the by-product of conservative rhetoric, with Sarah Palin being held up as the prime example.  Far left New York Times columnist Paul Krugman made the case against Palin with his typical vacuous snideness, blanketing conservatives with the description of “hate mongers”.  John Nichols of The Nation was even more misleading with the facts than most, forging a full on misrepresentation of Jared Loughner as a far-right extremist upset over Giffords’ vote for Obamacare and taking cues from Palin’s now infamous statement that conservatives should not retreat but “reload” when battling liberalism.  Here is a video showing the appalling contradiction of media coverage regarding the Arizona shootings vs the Fort Hood massacre of a year earlier:

And what is the outcome of all of this concerted effort by far left liberals to portray Sarah Palin and conservatism as the cause of the Tucson Tragedy?  If anything, liberals have simply managed to once again further marginalize themselves in the eyes of America.  Conservatives are rallying to defend Palin, and with polls indicating the vast majority of the public recognizes the liberal slant blame-game that has been the coverage following the shooting, so too are many independents ignoring the liberal media and Democratic politicians.

As for Sarah Palin herself, she has again emerged a stronger figure than before.  Even Barack Obama, during his speech at this week’s Tucson memorial service, seemingly sided with Palin in dismissing the Far Left’s attempts to place blame outside of the singular actions of a deranged gunman.  Whether or not Sarah Palin can develop into a viable Republican candidate for President of the United States remains to be seen, but one thing is certain - as an ever-popular conservative voice, she will not be silenced.  She will repeatedly prove her worth in battling the liberal horde and revealing the insipid hatred always bubbling beneath the surface that is the mainstream media and DC politics.

Don’t retreat Sarah.

The Ulsterman Report: Once Again, Sarah Palin Emerges Stronger

The script had been formulated long before the first bullet of deranged shooter Jared Lee Loughner rang out just outside a Safeway in Tucson Arizona last week.  The liberal wing of the Democratic Party, still gnashing their teeth over the rebuke against them in the November Midterm Elections, were desperate for a scapegoat.  The equally liberal media were only too happy to assist them by once again failing to actually report the facts, but rather quickly make those facts up to more fully coordinate with the much-desired outcome - that the shooting in Arizona was the result of rightwing bigotry, vitriol, rhetoric…etc.

The primary target of these attacks, once again, was Sarah Palin.

It remains a mystery why Palin so enrages the left.  From one side of their mouth they attempt to marginalize her as an inconsequential moron, some Alaskan redneck former beauty pageant breeder of too many children.  At the same time, they declare her dangerous, cunning, a too-powerful figure corrupting the minds of mainstream America.  The many contradictions contained within the liberals’ hatred (yes, I am using that word - because it is appropriate) of Sarah Palin willfully goes unnoticed by them.  They simply march on, gleeful in their collective and repeated attacks against the former governor of Alaska.  Sarah Palin is a woman.  Sarah Palin is a conservative. Sarah Palin is Pro-Life.  Sarah Palin is pro-gun rights.  Sarah Palin talks of her love of God and country. Sarah Palin has the audacity to openly (and effectively) mock liberalismWe must destroy her.

Washington (CNN) - House Democrats will allow a vote on the tax compromise reached by President Barack Obama and Republicans but will try to change the deal, especially an estate tax provision they believe is beneficial to the wealthy, one of their leaders said Sunday.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, who heads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters that the package will get a vote in the House despite a threat by House Democrats last week to prevent it from reaching the floor.

Rachel Maddow at Most Eel-Like Emerges During Interview With Jon Stewart

Think that liberals are slippery when disagreeing with a conservative? They're just as bad during an exchange with another liberal. One didn't have to wait long for examples of this during Rachel Maddow's interview with Jon Stewart on her MSNBC show Nov. 11.

Here's Maddow in the first segment of the interview attempting to draw a distinction between "direct-action activists" such as members of Code Pink and the tea party members who disrupted town hall meetings on health care in August 2009 (video below page break) -

WaPo Implies U.S. ‘Islamophobia’ Emerges in a ‘Vacuum’ of Ignorance, Lack of Diversity

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 13-09-2010

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Washington Post religion reporter Michelle Boorstein is generally a careful reporter, not prone to outbursts of liberal bias. But the general liberal-media bias that ignorance breeds "Islamophobia" came through between the lines in a Monday story on the aftermath of the Koran-burning publicity stunt week in Florida:  

In fact, like much of the country, Gainesville’s racial and religious diversity is minimal. Personal contact with Muslims is limited.

Nationally, more than half of the respondents in a recent Pew poll said they knew little or nothing about Islam. In that vacuum, violence overseas in the name of Islam defines that faith for many.

The implication is that truly learned people who have diverse human contacts have no logical reason to be concerned about the negative impact of Islam. (The story is not yet online.)

It’s also a little odd to suggest that "violence overseas" defines negative views of Islam, when violence in the United States is more powerfully suggestive, from 9/11 to the Fort Hood shooting. There can be a great difference between questioning a mosque that seems peaceful and a mosque that spreads the "spiritual advice" of imams like Anwar al-Awlaki that inspires terrorism. But the Post and other media outlets can have trouble identifying which is which.

What’s underplayed in stories about America’s tolerance of Islam is the question of how tolerant Islamic countries are of other faiths. Boorstein’s piece alluded near the beginning to how "more nuanced and franker conversations" are occurring after the Terry Jones stunt, such as "What was worse to see: churches torched in India or Nigeria or a few books in a remote exurban field?" That was the only sentence in the story that dared to imply that Islam is often not a tolerant faith when it dominates the state.

Of course, it should seem somewhat obvious that if the public knows little about Islam, that perhaps might be the fault (in part) of the news media, which generally disdains covering religion except when something (or someone) blows up.

For example, in a 2005 study of religion and the networks, Ken Shepherd and I found the networks couldn’t find the time to describe the theology behind the Sunni-Shi’ite "civil war" in Iraq:  "In all of their coverage of Iraq’s religious factions and their political aims, none of the broadcast networks ever gave a basic explanation of the key religious differences between these sects of the Islamic faith. For all their warning of impending civil war, they haven’t explained why their differences on matters of faith have proven a consistent source of conflict. "

Winner emerges in Vermont’s 5-way Democratic primary

(CNN) - The winner of the five-way Democratic gubernatorial primary in Vermont emerged Friday, and the runner-up quickly called for a recount, with 197 votes separating the top two candidates.

According to the Burlington Free Press, Peter Shumlin has won the election with 18,276 votes. Doug Racine received 18,079 votes. Out of 74,634 votes cast, the 197 that separate Shumlin and Racine represent just one quarter of one percent.

“That is less than one vote per town,” Racine told reporters at a press conference Friday.

“I’ve just spoken with Peter [Shumlin], and I told him I would be requesting a recount,” Racine said. “Peter said he would support my decision.”

CNN could not independently verify the results.
