White House Press Pool says NO to Obama bully tactics

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Kudos to the White House Press Pool for standing up on their hind legs and saying “NO” to the Obama Administration’s attempts to subvert the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Team Lightbringer tried to ban the Fox News reporter from participating in a standard Press Pool event. The other television news organizations in the pool (CNN/ABC/NBC/CBS) refused to be a part of this and would not proceed unless the entire Press Pool was part of the interview.

Allahpundit points out the disgusting level of hypocrisy shown by the Obama White House:

Decide for yourself what the most disgraceful aspect of this is. Was it the fact that Gibbs told Jake Tapper explicitly on Monday that the White House wouldn’t try to dictate to the press pool who should and shouldn’t be included — before doing precisely that? Was it Anita Dunn going out of her way to say she respects Major Garrett as a fair reporter — before the administration decided he didn’t deserve a crack here at Feinberg? Or was it the repeated insistence by Dunn and Axelrod that of course the administration will make its officials available to Fox — before pulling the plug today?

A free and unfettered press is a key element of a functional constitutional republic.  A fact that too many so-called “liberals” are sadly all to willing to ignore as long as their political enemies are the ones be oppressed.

It is also very disturbing to see the President of the United States to be more concerned with his “War” on those in the news media who dare to not march in lockstep with his agenda than the war Islamofascists have declared on America.

Update: There are sane and rational democrats who are starting to get nervous about our Dear Leader channeling the worst aspects of Nixon.

Why is the left afraid of honest questions?

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Here is a video of a leftist protest organizer (probably a paid professional) instructing people attending a town hall meeting (were they bussed in from out of district, like other leftist “protesters”) on how to drown out people asking honest and legitimate questions about ObamaCare.

What does the left have against the First Amendment and the basic right of Free Political Speech?

“This used to be America!” “It ain’t no more, okay?”

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

An enlightening video from a democrat congresscritter’s “Town Hall” meeting. No dissent will be allowed, and sadly the police are assisting with the denial of basic First Amendment rights.

The cop sums it up when he replies to the comment, “This used to be America!” with “It ain’t no more, okay?”

Helen Thomas: Obama worse than Nixon

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

As I noted before, even Helen Thomas, a devout liberal democrat, is objecting to the way our Dear Leader’s administration is, in her words, trying to control the press.

CNSNews has an update interview with long time White House Reporter Helen Thomas.

Helen Thomas told that not even Richard Nixon tried to control the press the way President Obama is trying to control the press.

“Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try.

“What the hell do they think we are, puppets?” Thomas said. “They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.”

Our Dear Leader is trying to turn Washington, D.C., already corrupt enough, into a “Chicago on the Potomac.” What is Barack Hussein Obama trying to hide from the American People?

The Obama Justice Department’s disturbing record on Civil Rights

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

The Justice Department dismissed the lawsuit against several members of the New Black Panther Party in what appears to be a clear case of voter intimidation in Philadelphia during the 2008 election.

Just in case you missed this one, here is a video replay.

Ms. Malkin has a followup post on the subject with links to Election Journal and the Washington Times.

If this is what we can expect from the Obama administration in the way the Justice Department handles Civil Rights cases, it is only going to get uglier. Seriously ugly, like Janet Reno ugly.

Quote of the Morning

Friday, May 29th, 2009

“Whether you like it or not, gun rights are civil rights. If you are against gun rights, then you are in the same pack as the Klan and the communists, and are as likely to vote to shut down churches and newspapers as you are to license and register guns.” — Guy Smith

Gun Crime drops in D.C. post Heller

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

That violent crimes committed by criminals with illegally obtained firearms has dropped since Washington, D.C.’s draconian anti-Civil Rights handgun ban was overturned should not be a surprise to anyone who actually studied the subject.
From the Washington Post Article:

The D.C. police department’s aggressive gun recovery efforts and the office of the attorney general’s coordinated emphasis on prosecuting gun-related crimes are showing strong results: In the past year, robberies with guns have decreased 12 percent; assaults with guns have decreased 14 percent; and overall violent crime has decreased by 5 percent in the District.

Hmmm…punishing the criminals and not the law abiding citizens seems to have a positive effect on society. Funny how the far left just can’t seem to grok that concept.

HT to Say Uncle and Mr. Reynolds.

Monday Morning News

Monday, May 11th, 2009

First item, an armed home invasion/robbery/rape/probably homicide was stopped because one of the victims decided not be a victim and used his firearm to drive off the attackers.

A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked men who burst into an apartment.

HT to Stephen Kruiser. I searched for this story on CNN and couldn’t find it. If the criminals had carried out their plan of robbery, rape and murder, the story would have been at the top of the news cycle.

Next, is this AP story that show that the early “stimulus” funds for road repair isn’t going where it is needed most.

Counties suffering the most from job losses stand to receive the least help from President Barack Obama’s plan to spend billions of stimulus dollars on roads and bridges, an Associated Press analysis has found.

In the really bad news front, prices for coffee and sugar ‘could “explode” due to supply shortages,’ according to the Financial Times.

Not surprising is the news that Team Lightbringer is planning another $60 Billion in new taxes.

On the WTF front, Fannie Mae is hitting the government up for more taxpayer money after losing $23.2 Billion dollars. Why did the executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac get millions in bonuses? What it because they are supported by democrat members of Congress?

The left’s answer to Free Speech

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

What we can expect from the left. Plans to disrupt Americans exercising their basic Civil Rights as set out in the First Amendment of the Constitution.

As you may know a bunch of redneck traitors are planning a protest on April 15th involving waving around a few tea bags and demonstrating mild irritation at Prez. Obama for making them pay taxes. Here is your chance to do your duty for your president and country and send these fools an unmistakable message.

First of all you can sign up at Huffington Post to become a tea party reporter. It would be a good idea to meet some people to take names and also pictures if possible which should also be forwarded to Janet Napolitano at the DHS.

Next you can join with our comrades at ACORN who have plans afoot to disperse these traitors.

Basically the plan works like this – ACORN has infiltrated the redneck groups that are planning all this. On the 15th at the proper moment a van pulls up with 5 young black women with pro Obama signs. They will be peaceful and respectful. Our infiltrators will verbally attack them with profanity and racial slurs and physically push them around while our camera crew films. In a minute they take off and it is all over.

Doesn’t seem like much till that night when the video gets put on the news and all you see are crazy hillbilly conservatives attacking innocent black counter protesters, shouting racial slurs and pushing them around.

You too can be a part of the glorious moment in history and help keep these traitors in check.

Note how the leftist casually uses racist slurs. The left can not compete in the free market of honest and open debate.

HT to Red State.

The left’s “Deity”

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

I kid you not. I received the following tweet from a leftist troll today.

I’m a supporter of change the change our great and divine leader president Obama has brought to america

Let’s take a look at that statement through the eyes of a rational adult in a free society.
First off, “great and divine leader”? This leftist troll should move to North Korea, he would fit right in.
Second, note that the troll capitalized the name of his “great and divine leader”, but couldn’t be bothered to capitalize the name of the nation he lives in and provides him the freedoms to decent.

This leftist troll was complaining about American citizens exercising their First Amendment rights.
He claimed that this exercise of the basic Human Right of Free Speech was “treason” against his “great and divine leader.” This leftist troll sets his cult of personality beliefs above that of the Constitution of the United States of America. I would not be surprised if this leftist troll demonstrated the left’s typical lack of basic history by calling those who are exercising their Civil Rights “fascists.”
