Mass Killings--Do You Detect a Pattern?

by Al Benson Jr.

There has been all manner of commentary on the Internet  regarding the recent tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

Some have suggested that we look at the bigger picture--one the includes Aurora, Colorado, Columbine High School, the recent Oregon shootings and several others. In each of the school shootings there seems to be a number of things that repeat themselves. It's almost like there is a set formula for these events, as if they are all part of a staged drama, brought about to create a certain public climate.

One commentator noticed that every one seems to take place in a "gun free" area, which means that there are already laws on the books banning guns in those places. Yet we continue to hear the multitudinous screams for more gun control.  If these shootings are taking place in already-existing gun free zones, then what good will more gun control laws do? That question is never answered, or even addressed.  In fact it is studiously ignored.

He also noted that every shooter, when they get to him, is either already dead or is mentally impaired or in some way unable to be questioned. Therefore none of them is ever available to make any public statements. How convenient!

After each shooting the "news" media delves almost exclusively into the human interest part of the event. No questions are asked that will reveal any kind of information about the shooting or possible shooters other than the one found dead on the scene. It is all media fluff--guaranteed to be real "tear-jerker" stuff, while passing no real information along to the public.

Then comes the usual plethora of calls for more gun control, heralded forth by the usual suspects in the socialist and ultra-liberal camps and their compliant lap dog media. You've heard it all before and you will hear it all again--until the federal government manages to do away with the Second Amendment. That's what it's all about.

According to CNN's Don Lemon, guns "...should only be available to police officers and to hunt al-Qaeda and the Taliban and not hunt elementary school children." Leave it to CNN to put that kind of a spin on it, but let's face it, that's what they are there for.

The Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo--that bastion of constitutional liberty--is now busy tinkering with ideas to force gun confiscation in his state, by hook or by crook, makes no difference. You must remember that to these people the end justifies the means.

Just remember, "gun control is really people control." That's the real name of the game.

"Right Wing Fascists"

by Al Benson Jr.

I remember when I was a youngster, (ancient history now) that people used to refer to Hitler as a "right-wing fascist" and they used to promote the false idea that while Stalin was on the far left, Hitler was on the far right. Now granted, Communists and fascists did not especially like one another, but the reason for that was that they were in competition for total government and no total government figure likes competition.

Of the two systems, fascism is the most efficient because the people living under it maintain the facade of owning the property, which means that they are responsible for its upkeep and the government tells they what they can or cannot do with it and when. With Communism, the state claims ownership of all property, and therefore the state is responsible for taking care of it all. So, as a totalitarian worldview fascism is more efficient.

Both Communism and fascism are different forms of total government and therefore both systems belong over on the far left of the political spectrum. That being the case, if the far left represents total government, then the far right has to mean almost no government at all--anarchy. So as far a Communism and fascism go politically, we have all been lied to--both are on the far left and both are equally reprehensible.

It shouldn't be that hard to figure out, yet how many people really stop to think about it? Most just accept what they've heard all their lives and never give it a thought. You'd think that civics or political science classes in public schools would deal with something as elementary as this, yet in school I don't ever recall hearing anything about this and I was in school during some of the Cold War years, graduating back in 1956.

I recall briefly seeing some of the McCarthy hearings on television and not paying them any mind. I wish I had had the perception back then to realize what it was all about. I never heard anything about both Communism and fascism being on the political left until I heard a speaker in 1970 give a talk on different systems of government.

I wondered why this mystery was never cleared up until I realized that it was deliberate. The politicians and news-twisters we call the "news" media wanted it that way. They wanted Hitler portrayed as a right-winger so that people on the right politically could be smeared with the Nazi identity brush. Mostly it worked.

So, folks, remember this brief little political history lesson--both Communism and fascism are way over there on the far left politically--and theologically--because they are both totalitarian theologies..
He Was Red All Along

by Al Benson Jr.

For literally decades we were assured that Nelson Mandela from South Africa was not a Communist, that this wild accusation was thrown at him only so the forces of apartheid  in South Africa could stigmatize him before the world. We were told his only crime was wanting equal treatment for blacks in South Africa, that he was really a South African patriot--and on and on the usual media drivel went.

Now that South Africa has basically gone Communist (is there a lesson for the US here?) we are informed that, guess what, Mandela was a Communist after all. What a surprise! Some of us knew this forty years ago in spite of what the media told us. Groups like the John Birch Society were smeared as "Red baiters" simply for telling the truth that Mandela had lied about.

In an article by Colin Freeman and Jane Flanagan that was on http://www.telegraph.co.uk appeared the following: "For decades it was one of the most enduring disputes of South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle.  Was Nelson Mandela. the leader of the African National Congress, really a secret Communist, as the white-only government at the time alleged?...Now nearly half a century after the court case that made him the world's best known prisoner of conscience, a new book claims that whatever the wider injustices perpetrated, the apartheid-era prosecutors were indeed right on one question:  Mr. Mandela was a Communist Party member after all."

The articles continued: "But research by a British historian, Professor Stephen Ellis, has unearthed fresh evidence that during his early years as an activist, Mr. Mandela did hold senior rank in the South African Communist Party, or SACP.  He says Mr. Mandela joined the SACP to enlist the help of the Communist superpowers for the ANC's campaign of armed resistance to white rule."

Let's get one thing straight here. If Mandela was a Communist then his first primary concern was to further whatever agenda the Communist Party in his country put forward, and not to help black people. Communists are noted the world over for using black people as cannon fodder in their "wars of resistance." So if Mandela was, indeed, Red, then his first loyalty was to the Party and not his people.

The British researcher, after noting Mandela's Party membership, went on to talk about how "magnanimous"  Mandela was to all South Africans.  Anyone who knows anything about Communists knows they are not magnanimous people. That sentiment does not fit into their agenda for world governance, which, contrary to poplular opinion, they still have.

I wonder if Mandela's magnanimity extended to his wife, Winnie, who, while he was still in prison was noted for her practice of having her political opponents "necklaced." If you don't know what that term implies check it out on the Internet referencing it to her.

So it's all just another case of the public, world-wide, being lied to by the politicians and the media movers and shakers. So what else is new?

The Marxist Mindset

by Al Benson Jr.

Some writers have observed Marxists and their actions  and concluded that they are liars and hypocrites. These do not understand the Marxist mindset or worldview.

The late Dr. Fred Schwarz wrote in his informative little book You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists) the following: "The Communists are not hypocrites. They suffer from paranoic delusions of an intense sincerity. They are so enmeshed in the delusions of Marxism-Leninism that they are beyond the scope of rational argument and conviction. All observed phenomena are interpreted within the framework of their preconceived  conclusions. If they were hypocrites it would be much easier to deal with them.  You can make a bargain with a huypocrite;  you can scare a hypocrite. When you are dealing with paranoia of highly organized delusional patterns,  your sole resource is to acknowledge and understand these patterns and take appropriate measures to protect yourself against the conduct which results from the delusions."

Dr. Schwarz noted that it is not possible for a Communist to lie in the interest of Communism because any statement he or she makes that will further the Communist agenda is automatically the truth in their eyes. Any statement that advances the Communist program is, therefore, true and we can always trust Communists to tell "Marxist-Leninist truth." Therefore, any lie, fable, or fairy tale that will advance Communist conquest and/or control is automatically not a lie, but rather is "Marxist truth." Final and complete maturity for the Communist is reached when you get to the point where you identify your emotions completely with what the Party wants. Not the slightest bit of room for individual thinking here--even the very thought of it is :"thought crime."

People need to realize that this is where Marxists are coming from and that any action they take--robbery, rape, falsehood, deception--anything they do that will advance the Marxist agenda is, in their eyes, the truth and is, therefore, righteous and "holy" to them.  Communism is, in fact, a false theology. Whittaker Chambers, in his  excellent book Witness noted that Communism and Christianity are, in fact, two irreconcilable faiths. At root, Communism is not economic, it is theological.  It's adherents would deny that truth, but it is nonetheless a truth. If you wish to understand the Marxist then begin to understand his mindset.

One might be led to wonder if this is one reason the Republicans have so much trouble dealing with Obama on so many issues. He was raised in  a totally Marxist environment and that's the way he thinks. Of course since the current crop of Republican "leaders" lives for no other reason than to pretend to resist Obama's agenda before dutifully caving in to it, it may not make that much difference.

Whittaker Chambers'  book Witness is still available on Amazon.com and would be worth picking up to grasp the Communist worldview. Having just finished reading it, I recommend it.

Obama--the Superlative Vote Getter

by Al Benson Jr.

You have to give Comrade Obama credit. He sure knows how to rack up the votes. Votes for him literally keep counting and counting and counting. I received an article from http://www.punditpress.com that had a headline that said: Breaking: St. Lucie County Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County.

The article noted that: "Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the country." With that kind of extra "help" I would guess he would have won the county. With 72,159 more votes cast than there were registered voters how could he miss?

The article continued: "Along with this questionable result, Mr. Obama also received over 99% of the vote in numerous districts in Broward County. In various districts in Cleveland, he received 100% of the vote.  In Florida, Mr. Obama received over 99% of the vote in precincts where GOP inspectors had been removed. Gee,. what a surprise. Sounds like all the Romney voters just stayed home so Obama could win all these precincts by 100%--or over

From the same source yet another article stating: Fraud in PA: Obama Got Over 99% of Vote at Polls Where GOP Inspectors were Removed; Turnout Somehow "30%" Above Gov't Numbers. The article also noted that "Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations... Coincidentally (or not) Mr. Obama received 'astronomical' numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received 'over 99%' of the vote. Ward 4 which also had a poll watcher dressed in Obama attire, went massively for Obama. Mr. Obama received 99.5% of the vote, defeating Mr. Romney 9,955 to 55." And also "Obama won 99.8% of the vote in 44 Cleveland districts. In Ohio, Obama won a county with 108% voter registration."

Yet another source http://poorrichardsnews.com said "Voter fraud? Boston reports 129% voter turnout" It also noted figures for Ward 18 in three specific precincts where Obama received 97.15%, 98.91% and 97.57% respectively.  Doesn't sound like anybody in Massachusetts voted for Romney either. He might as well have stayed home. If you took all these kinds of results and translated them nationwide Obama would have gotten 110% of the vote and Romney would actually owe him several votes.

Vote fraud? Why perish the thought! Such would never happen in our "democracy" would it? After all, if you can't trust "the system" then who or what can you trust? Right? And you know the Obama administration is so open and transparent they would never allow such to go on, don't you? Well, don't you? Someone please speak up--I don't hear any answers.

Awhile back Obama was caught with his microphone on when he thought it was off. He was telling the Russian ambassador to "tell Vladimir (Putin) I will have more flexibility after the election is over." Almost makes you wonder if even at that point, several months ago, the results of this election were already a done deal and everybody involved already knew Obama would be back, no matter what the voters wanted. If that is the case, then the whole election charade, including the debates, primaries and all the rest, was nothing but one gigantic dog and pony show for the benefit of the ignorant masses. As the man once said--"it's not who votes that counts. It's who counts the votes". The American people have been had--but then that's nothing new. It's been going on since Abraham Lincoln and we still haven't figured it out--thanks to our public school "educations."

The New Republican Left

by Al Benson Jr.

Ever since Tuesday, November 6th when we had that debacle charitably called an election there has been much public soul-searching regarding the Republican Party and its future.

Some have advocated that the Party "get rid of all that right-wing stuff" and move to the "center", which is really the left but they don't dare call it that.  Others have advocated that real conservatives secede from the Republican Party and form a really conservative third party. Of these two solutions I would prefer the latter.

If the real conservatives did get out of the Republican Party then those who stayed in could just merge with the Democratic Party because they aren't all the different anyway. You could name them "the Republicrat Party." You would still end up with two parties.

Former presidential candidate Herman Cain wants a third party but he doesn't want the Ron Paul people in it. He says we need a "legitimate third party." The Ron Paul folks aren't legitimate? Why Herman? The Ron Paul folks are a lot more legitimate than what passes for the Republican Party at this point.

I said on http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com  on July 14th and September 30th of this year that I felt that Romney was going to toss the election to Obama and do a "John McCain" on us and that the Republican establishment had no problem with that. So far it looks like I might be right. I really wish I had been wrong.

But when you come down to it both major parties are controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission--the one world government boys--and so both parties are essentially the same--two different wings on the same socialist turkey. Years ago George Wallace said there was not a dime's worth of difference between them. Turns out old George was right on the money.

Question is, if both of these "political parties" are controlled by a group that advocates the US being part of a one world government, the question could be asked, and rightly so, if either one of them are legitimate? The only major difference between them is rhetorical.

Maybe they should merge officially.  That way we could see the Old Left, the New Left and the Republican Left all in one happy group and those that are pretending to be conservative could quit pretending and hoist the Red flag along with Comrade Obama and the rest. At least it would be more honest than what we have now.

Will "Frankenstorm" Postpone the Election?

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, some watched the presidential debates, at least as much of them as they could stomach. Some of us watched portions of them via the Internet.

I am no big fan of Mitt Romney. I think history shows that the Republicans are just as much of a problem for the country as the Democrats. That the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission control both major parties is common knowledge to those who follow the political scene, even to those who won't admit such. So you will get their boy no matter who wins this beauty contest we still call a presidential election.

What I think is more important for people to concentrate on is local, county, parish and state elections. Informed people can still have an impact on those.

Anyway, after the debates were over and much of the "news" media claimed that Obama had won the last two debates hands down, Romney started to do much better in many of the polls and he has continued on that upward trend slowly but surely.

Now a little more than a week before the election a good portion of the country is about to be threatened by "Frankenstorm"--the "mother" of all bad weather systems in the US. We have a hurricane that is supposed to ravage the East Coast from the Carolinas up to Maine, a blue norther coming down out of Canada that has dropped temperatures by 30 degrees even in the deep South, and more rain coming up from the Southwest--and all of these weather systems are supposed to collide with one another for weather fun and games.

All of a sudden the news about Romney passing Obama in the polls has disappeared from the front pages of what passes for newspapers, to be replaced with pictures of hurricane-force winds pounding against some old building at the end of a wharf on the East Coast.

What happens if this storm or combination of storms hits just before the election and power is lost in several states, not to be returned for weeks? Will the election be postponed by an announcement from Obama on the nightly "news" broadcast telling us the election will resume when everything gets back to normal, whenever that is?

It all gives Obama such a golden opportunity to look "presidential" while he is informing us that there can be no election for the foreseeable future--however long that might be. Will his "presidential" performance during this storm change any of the poll numbers from what they would otherwise have been?

I listened to an interview on Infowars.com recently in which the interviewer noted that the US government has been able to influence weather patterns since sometime in the late 1960s.

I can't say that is what is going on here, but it does make you wonder just what is going on. But, then, after all, if you can't trust your government...???

Hate Group On The Left--The Southern Poverty Law Center

By Al Benson Jr.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, located in Montgomery, Alabama, is an organization well known to most of those in the Southern and Confederate Movements—and not viewed with fondness. This is the organization that, over ten years ago, published a list of Confederate “hate groups” that included the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Sons of Confederate Veterans among others. None of the groups they listed could have been considered hate groups to anyone acquainted with reality. However reality is not something that concerns the SPLC.

Their agenda is to demonize almost anyone to the right of Hugo Chavez, a chore they work at with gleeful abandon. When it comes to Confederate or Southern historical or heritage groups they are all hate groups as far as the SPLC is concerned.

Not only does the SPLC seek to stigmatize Southern Heritage folks, they go after Tea Party people as well and they even stick up for segments of the United Nations agenda.

James Simpson, freelance journalist and former White House budget analyst wrote an article on http://www.rightsidenews.com in which he said: “The SPLC author called Agenda 21 an ‘environmental protection’ initiative, when anyone who has actually studied the document—I have—immediately recognizes it as a rationalization for socializing every aspect of our lives. Not merely redistributing income, which it calls for with a ‘global tax’ but redistributing populations within borders, across borders and even across continents. Sound familiar? Welcome to the open borders crowd and George Soros’ ‘Open Society.’”

Mr. Simpson has realized that the political and theological left often has a problem in promoting indefensible and unpopular agendas that promote socialism and so they are forced to come up with terminology that seeks to make something horrendous sound warm and fuzzy—and this fools lots of people. Thankfully it does not fool all of them and some of those that are not fooled do speak out.

Regarding Agenda 21 Mr. Simpson has further observed: “The U.N.’s primary vehicle for imposing Agenda 21 on local communities is the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). National awareness of this malevolent organization has now resulted in a percent decline of their membership! About 85 local governments followed the commissioners’ example and revoked their memberships. State governments are now beginning to enact laws against Agenda 21. …We need to recognize that the SPLC does not merely represent an organized example of leftist lunacy. It is a dangerous organization, whose goal is to isolate its enemies and make them politically radioactive. They achieve this through calculated, disingenuous and hate-filled propaganda.”

Simpson has also told us that the SPLC has become a sort of “consultant” not only to the FBI but also to the Department of Homeland Security. What a convenient way to polarize their enemies and make them look evil not only to the federal government but to the public at large. I don’t know how many “news” articles I’ve seen in the past few years that call this or that organization a “hate group” and they cite the SPLC as their source. Years ago those in the Southern Movement stated quite plainly and truthfully that those who use the SPLC as source for their information about “hate groups” are just not credible and should not be taken seriously. I agree.

One piece of revelatory information was passed along by Mr. Simpson in his article when he said: “On May Day this year a bombing attempt by the Occupy Cleveland activists was thwarted. Afterward, a reporter for “National Review” asked the SPLC if it planned to put Occupy Wall Street on its ‘hate group’ list? SPLC’s stunning answer: ‘We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left.’” In other words, their agenda is to make those on the Right look bad or look like hate-mongers but they don’t really plan to do anything in regard to leftist groups which may be genuine hate groups.

In other words, all their agenda covers is making groups on the right look bad. They have no interest in exposing leftist groups. Why? Because they are over on the far left themselves and they dare not expose any of their “comrades” they have been instructed to leave alone.

Simpson has also noted that: “The SPLC, a ‘non-profit’ organization, has a one quarter billion dollar endowment, and socks away many millions every year in donations and investment returns much of which is kept in offshore banks. Why? The SPLC is an institutionalized, heavily funded genuine hate group that focuses not on other hate grups but on groups it hates.

As far as Agenda 21 goes, I would expect the SPLC to support and endorse its “initiatives” as the United Nations is a “one world organization” with decided socialist goals. An article published on March 16, 2012 on http://ppigfiles.wordpress.com has observed: “While actual groups do exist that are quite obviously built around hatred or intolerance of other sectors of the population, it is highly doubtful that the government or law enforcement needs the assistance of SPLC to identify them. As SPLC has acquired its massive wealth through selling their own brand of hatred for profit, doubtless they should top the list of possible suspects.”

The next time you see an article about some “right-wing hate group” and the author cites the SPLC as his source, write to the publication he works for and tell them that this group is not a credible sources and encourage the author of the article to get out and do some real homework on his subject instead of buying the tales of leftist prevaricators.

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I did an interview on the Spingola Speaks radio show (9/24/12) dealing with the book "Lincoln's Marxists" written by Walter D. Kennedy and myself. You should be able to find this by doing a Google search and you can then listen to the podcast of the show, which was two hours long.

Interviews are interesting, yet sometimes daunting, because you never quite know what you will be asked and someone can always come up with a question that you know almost nothing about even on a subject you have researched. No one can pick up everything to do with a subject even researching it.

I have done a few radio interviews over the years and had a handful of speaking engagements at Southern Heritage events. A polished speaker I am not, so folks don't get a slick, glitzy presentation out of me but they do get facts which I hope they might be able to use and to pass on to others and that's the real reason for doing these things. Our book "Lincoln's Marxists" (Pelican Publishing, Gretna, Louisiana) contains lots of information the history books leave out about the socialist and communist involvement in the War of Northern Aggression, on the Union side.

I did a similar interview about our book about four years ago which, surprisingly, is still on the Internet at thinkorbeeaten.com/theknoll

Needless to say, not everyone agrees with our presentation of facts about socialist involvement in the War. The politically correct folks hate this kind of book and they are quick to denounce it or to write book reviews that trash it. I have been told that even a bad book review is better than no book review because some who read the review just may want to check out the book to see why the reviewer thought it was so terrible.

I can recall, years ago, when I went to movies that I would always read the movie reviews in the paper and if the reviewers really panned some movie I would think it must might be worth seeing. I usually enjoyed what the reviewers hated.

Congress talking again about increading minimum wage by Al Benson Jr.

I just read an article this evening that mentioned that Congress is again talking about increasing the minimum wage, in increments, until it reaches somewhere in the neighborhood of $9.80 and hour. To lots of folks making minimum wage that sounds really great. However, think what it will do to many business owners who are operating on a marginal basis at this point. Many of them will be forced to go out of business because they can no longer pay the wages necessary to stay in business. Others who are not marginal but are still having to struggle will end up laying off people because they cannot afford to pay this increase. So their work will have to be absorbed by people that are already working at their own jobs who will not be thrilled at having to "double up" and do someone else's work along with their own. Everybody today expects to get more and pay less and mostly that won't happen. You can only squeeze the turnip so much until their ain't no juice left there. I remember, in this context, listening to Milton Friedman, years ago now when the minimum wage was $2.25 an hour. It had just been raised and he was skeptical of that. He asked the question, and I think it was a good one--why is an entry level black student better off unemployed at $2.25 an hour than he was employed at $2.00 per hour? He had a good point and I have yet to hear anyone answer his question. Raising the minimum wage yet again will only result in lots of marginal workers losing their jobs because their employers just can't afford to pay that much to all the people that work for them and so some will have to go. But the Congresscritters, trying to make points back home with the electorate don;'t have to worry too much about that. Their retirement is already secure and you can bet they will get lots more than the folks on Social Security So, is this a "concern for the poor" or just another vote-getter?

Will There Be An Election In November? by Al Benson Jr.

Within the past three days I have gotten emails from three different sources all noting the possibility that there may not be an election next November because there will be some sort of "October surprise" that will cancel out the "need" for an election. I cannot personally verity the accuracy of any of these but all have come from sources that have been accurate and on target in the past so it does give me some cause for reflection at this point. One source has noted that someone in Washington has designed what we call a "false flag" event before the election so that it will appear as if Obama has been the victim of "racist hatred by the white gun owners and people concerned about the Constitution..." This would be in keeping with such events that have taken place in the past. For other sources relating to this please check out http://chasvoice.blogspot.com and http://beforeitsnews.com

That Anti-Obama Movie

by Al Benson Jr. My son sent me an email this afternoon which noted that Dinesh D'souza's new movie "Obama 2016" had made it to the top movie of this weekend grossing $6.3 million in sales. That's pretty good for a documentary movie, and one that's only 29 minutes long. It was in about 1,000 theaters for the weekend, while most of the regular commercial movies were in around 3,000 theaters, so for it to end up being the top seller while being in less theaters has to say something. It may mean that, at last, some folks are waking up to the fact that Mr. Obama is a Marxist and that he has loaded his administration with leftists who vary in shade from deep pink to bright Red. You will get very little of this from the lap dog media who seem to be so addicted to Obama and his Marxist agenda that they will not publish or broadcast anything that makes him look bad. Hence his Marxism will never be exposed by those people, making them complicit in his Marxist agenda--not that such bothers them. To say that our "news" media leans to the left would be putting it mildly. Some writers on the Internet feel that Obama's campaign is running out of steam and that he has nothing new to offer (what he's already offered is more than we need) and so he has resorted to attacking his opponent rather than dealing with issues. This is a standard Marxist diversionary tactic. Erick Erickson, writing on http://www.redstate.com on August 24th noted that: "From Mark Halperin to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media ix when it comes to Barack Obama's spin. All week long, as the economy deteriorates, most every anchor at most every news outlet, most every editorialist in most every paper, and most every 'centrist' and liberal pundit has been pointing out the GOP's extremist abortion position." This is a classic example of what I am talking about. Obama has the economy in shreds and he wants four more years to complete the job and all the media can do is to rant about what they claim or "extremist" Republican positions on other things. Do the folks that make up the "news" (what a laugh) media know that Obama's Marxist politics have ruined the country's economy? Of course they do. Will they reveal that to the American public? Don't hold your breath waiting! Whatever news that reflects badly on Comrade Obama will either be spun to make him look good or tossed down the memory hole. I don't see how these guys have the gall to still call themselves the "news" media. I saw what the "news" media did to Ron Paul here in Louisiana--and if it wasn't a crime it should have been. So I have no faith whatever in the regular "news" media. Those that are not outright liberals and socialist, with a few exceptions, are trying to be. And for all of that, they are still not fooling a goodly segment of the public, otherwise this new anti-Obama movie would not have grossed over $6 million this weekend.
