Being a conservative, every time I turn on CNN or MSNBC, I don’t stay there long. When Bill Clinton was President, I often thought CNN was just an extension of the White House. And we all know that Time Magazine is the protectorate of Hillary Clinton, and all things liberal.
Having said that…it might be because they are all sort of…one big family.
Trust me I’m Lying, Confessions of a Media Manipulator by Ryan Holiday
Ryan Holiday confesses, how he was hired to ‘promote’ stories on the internet, and control pretty much whatever topic he wants to get into the news. In other words…he lies. He describes how he got one of his “clients” in the news in order to promote a movie that was about to be released. And he starts out with something…offending:
Offending always gets the attention AND money:
“I designed the advertisements which I bought and placed around the country, and then promptly called and left anonymous complaints about them, (and leaked copies of my complaints to blogs’ for support.) I alerted college LGBT and women’s rights groups to screenings in their area and baited them to protest our offensive movie at the theater, knowing that the nightly news would cover it. I started a boycott group on Facebook. I orchestrated fake tweets and posted fake comments to articles online. I even won a contest for being the first one to send in a picture of a defaced ad in Chicago (thanks for the free T shirt, Chicago Redeye. Oh. also that photo was from New York ) I manufactured preposterous stories about Tucker’s (FAKE NAME) behavior on and off the move set and purported them to gossip websites which gleefully repeated them. I paid for anti-woman ads on feminist websites and anti-religion ads on Christian websites, knowing each would write about it. Sometimes I just Photo shopped ads onto screenshots of websites and got coverage for controversial ads that never actually ran.
The key word here is “manufactured.” Ryan tells how very easy it is to put out a fake story In fact, he gets paid to do this for a living.
” I can turn nothing into something by placing a story with a small blog that has very low standards, which then becomes the source for a story by a larger blog, and that, in turn, for a story by larger media outlets. I create, to use the words of one media scholar, a “self reinforcing news wave.” People like me do this every day. “
This confession by the professional who works in the business, has to interest us all, because what we see every single day is people just repeating some story they got from somewhere.
Obama doesn’t have to attack his enemies constantly: He has PAID media manipulators to do it for him. The conservatives do the very same thing with the tea party. Karl Rove destroyed just about every one of them he could in the last election, helping to place a democratic majority in the Senate. The way they took down Sarah Palin, and all the tea party candidates is right out of Ryan’s book.
Scandals sell. Scandals are big money. They make them up. What he is saying is that most of our whole media system is based on profits: not truth.
“However the play starts, the end is the same: The economics of the Internet are exploited to change public perception and sell product. But I got sucked into the media underworld, getting hit after publicity hit for my clients and propagating more and more lies to do so. I created false perceptions through blogs, which led to bad conclusions and wrong decisions real decisions in the real world that had consequences for real people. Gradually I began to notice work just like mine appearing everywhere and no one catching onto it or repairing the damage. Stocks took major hits to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, on news from the same unreliable sources I’d often trick with fake stories. I was lost in the same unreality I’d force on other people. I found that not only did I not know what was real anymore, but that I no longer cared.”
This is just a tip of the interesting confessions you will get from Ryan.
In this world where everyone tells you to check Snoopes, or Wikipidia, or some other place, you must always consider the source. Snoopes is owned by Soros. Do we believe what is said there?
So…as we hear the same stories being rehashed by bloggers, Newspapers, and National Pundits, how can you tell if that story isn’t just a lie?
Whatever you are seeing, or hearing, or whatever poll you are listening to…Always consider the source. That is, if you can even find out who the source was.
In the end, Ryan says we’re cheering on our own deception. It’s very interesting when somebody who makes a living at lying, decides to confess. And now, he is writing books. It’s all…good to know, because so very few of us did. Thanks to Ryan’s confession, we now do.
This week we have two people who were just not perfect enough to foresee their future: Yi Lin Zhuo VS a Man with a Fish.
Both these men did not see the jealousy they were arousing on those around them, and therefore, they suffered.
Let’s take Yi Lin Zhuo first:
Yi Lim Zhuo’s crime was being too rich. Yes, it seems he let a illegal Chinese cousin come over from China, and stay with him and his family. Not too smart. The young and lazy (according to all who knew him) Mingdong Chen, (see picture here) was so jealous of Yi Lim’s Zhuo life, that one day, while Yi Lim was at work, he butchered Yi Lim’s wife and four children. because it just wasn’t fair….
Mingdong Chen, 25, showed no remorse when he confessed to slaughtering the family that allowed him to live in their Brooklyn apartment and admitted that he committed the atrocity because he envied their way of life, a police source told The Post. .NYPD Chief of Department Philip Banks III said Chen had cited his inability to make it in America as his motive for the slayings..
“Everyone here is doing better than me,” Banks quoted the suspect as saying during a confession in Mandarin Chinese, the only language Chen speaks. Two of the kids, including the baby, had been decapitated, and there was a trail of blood throughout the house, sources said.
And then there’s this fellow:
Fisherman Bob. (He looks like a Bob.) Not realizing that he has no right to catch fish without sharing his fair share with the seals, Pancho the seal just took it, right out of his hands. Yes, Pancho was jealous.
Poor fisherman Bob—outsmarted by a seal. Nobody’s Perfect.
So who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Not only did they not report that Mingdong Chen should not have even been in this country, they seemed sympathetic to the fact that he just couldn’t seem to get it through his head that maybe his cousin had worked long and hard for his riches. After all, it’s not Obama’s fault that the economy is so bad and amnesty hasn’t been passed, and he didn’t get his free welfare check. Obviously, Zhuro was in that secret terrorist society called……conservatives.
And instead of doing their job and going after the lying President for always claiming to know absolutely positively nothing about any scandal that occurs on his watch— (IRS, Fast and Furious, FBI prostitutions, millions losing their insurance, NSA spying, Michelle’s midnight McDonalds’ runs…) , they are posting video’s of people losing their fish. ( I got this video from The Huffington Post. )
So, congratulations liberal and clueless reporters…you win the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week. Nobody reports the “rich Vs the poor’ communist manifesto revolution garbage in order to promote class warfare, more than YOU!
When you finally print those pictures of Obama in the bathhouses of Chicago, that you’ve been hiding, maybe we’ll all start trusting you again.
Media bias. According to this video, the reason the conservatives are losing the battle is due to the fact that there are more democrats reporting the news than conservatives. If the conservatives could get more of their message across, there would be a shift.
The liberal media is good at one thing that the conservatives are not: They know how to use the internet to create a fake firestorm
From the book by Ryan Holiday: Trust Me, I’m Lying. He explains how it’s done…
“I designed the advertisements, which I bought and placed around the country, (on billboards) and then promptly called and left anonymous complaints about them (and leaked copies of my complaints to blogs for support.) I alerted college LGBT and women’s rights groups to screenings in their area and baited them to protest our offensive movie at the theater., knowing that the nightly news would cover it. I started a boycott group on FACEbook. I orchestrated fake tweets and posted fake comments to articles online. I even won a contest for being the first one to send in a picture of a defaced ad in Chicago. (thanks for the free T-shirt, Chicago Redeye. Oh, also, that photo was from New York.) I manufactured preposterous stories about Tuckers’ (fake name) behavior on and off the movie set and reported them to gossip websites, which gleefully repeated them. I paid for anti-woman ads on feminist websites and anti-religion ads on Christian websites, knowing each would write about it. Sometimes I just Photoshopped ads onto screenshots of websites and got coverage for controversial ads that never actually ran. The loop became final when, for the first time in history, I put out a press released to answer my own manufactured criticism: TUCKER MAX RESPONDS TO CTA DECISION:” BLOW ME.” the headline read.
I pulled this off with no connections, no money, and no footsteps to follow. But because of the way that blogging is structured—from the way bloggers are paid by the page view to the way blog posts must be written to catch eh readers’ attention—this was all very easy to do. So as the manufactured storm I created played itself out in the press, real people started believing it, and it became true.
However the play starts, the end is the same: The economics of the Internet are exploited to change public perception, and sell product. “
So…how much of the news that bloggers are repeating actually fake stories? It’s pretty easy to plant the story and watch it go up the latter…from the bloggers, to the radio hosts, to the magazines, then to the national news.
I talked to my brother today, and he said, “They just ought to let Obamacare fail.” And right after he said it, I thought to myself, “He is just repeating the very same thing the Rino’s are saying. He must have heard it on TV.” And because everyone’s life is so busy, we have all trusted what we heard in the past.
Those days…..are gone.
We all know that Obama has thousands of fake followers on his tweets. Who knows how many people they have on staff to manipulate the news? According to Ryan, they know exactly how to manipulate the media, and they pay people big money to do it.
Nobody Wins when the media will plant staged events to get power, but at least some people are starting to know, like Ryan Holiday, that as clever as he was in doing this stuff, he is destroying lives.
And now, for more of a good laugh, see how many times Obama used this staged fainting stunt, and WHO he learned it from. Don’t miss the end, Hillary is pretty funny. Talk about “fake.” I’m starting to think we should rename Washington, “Silicone Valley.”
Last Friday night, I was cooking dinner and watching Sheppard Smith on FOX NEWS talking to a storm chaser in Oklahoma. The TV screen looked…green. The whole Oklahoma skyline looked… green. I was wondering if some technician somewhere added some “green” just to make it look even scarier.
I would have added the wicked Witch of the West zooming through the clouds on her broom for the kids, but that’s why I don’t work for a TV station.
No detail is too small when it comes to the entertainment of the masses. And THIS tornado had become the most exciting thing that had happened since the LAST tornado that ‘President’ Obama has already forgot. He no doubt thought this happened in Madison.
They had great camera shots of it. This was Hollywood stuff. This was Oscar worthy. This was news titillation in its finest hour.
The storm chaser talking to Sheppard Smith was screaming and talking so fast, Sheppard had to tell him to slow down…
“A FARM just went over my head!” the storm chaser yelled.
“What…are you okay..did you say you see some farm equipment?”
Money. What some people will do for it.
I was flipping over the bacon, when I turned on the local news: St. Louis was also on a tornado watch.
“Great” I thought. “not again.”
Sure enough…my husband and I went downstairs as the tornado sirens were going off and then the lights went out, almost at exactly the same time that the tornado that hit my street on April 10 this year had: 8.30pm.
Cell phones weren’t working, so I was stuck with my old trusted radio, and very anxious to hear where the tornados touched down. Were they near us? Were they coming this way?
Do I have time to flip the bacon?
Oklahoma is used to tornadoes, but here in St. Louis people were calling up to the radio station, asking about damages, etc…..and the reporters would always say, “We’ll see what happened tomorrow.” As I laid in the dark and listened to the frightened voices on my radio, I thought the commentator was purposely being very nebulous and leaving everyone literally…in the dark. He knew what happened. He was just not going to say. His reputation was on the line.
In the meantime, people were calling up saying they had been in a Casino where the roof was ripped off, tractor trailers flipped, there were houses hit, schools torn apart, etc, and the radio host acted as if it was just a little storm.
First report came in: (You KNOW how I am about first reports.) Many casualties when a hotel was hit. Drivers reported 20 ambulances arriving at the scene, but the cops said, nobody was hurt.
It’s okay folks, only 100 houses have been flattened and over 200 damaged but that’s really nothing.
The next day, I was stuck without a car, and so I had the Cardinal baseball game on. They were playing the Giants. KMOX is our main radio station here. It’s the only one that reports the news. Around 10 a.m. The man in charge of our local electric company came on to say that the whole city had wires down everywhere, they had 800 men out, 300 men coming in from other states, and it was reported that about 100,000 people were without electric. The numbers went all over the map in every different report.
The electric man said that Governor Nixon had declared a disaster, and he would tell everyone at 2.30 pm that day, what was going on. He had to take the whole day reviewing everything.
So…he SAID he’d be back at 2.30 pm, and tell us what he found out.
I couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say.
Nobody knew just how long their electric would be out, so I’m sure I wasn’t the only fool who listened to the radio for hours in anticipation. I decided. I would listen to the game.
They had to cancel the game the night before due to weather, so they held a double- header downtown. They even added fireworks. No doubt, they were hoping all the people without electric would drive downtown for the game. What an opportunity! Get out of your miserable house and come on down!
Yes, whole neighborhoods left in the dark…good idea.
Not once, throughout that whole game was there any mention of what had happened in St. Louis. Jack Buck (RIP) would have said something. I would have devoted a whole ten minutes of gratitude to Tom Edison, and how really $%& up the world would be if he had not been born, but that’s why I’m not a sports broadcaster.
Sure, the 200,000 people who had electric saw the news on TV. but the other 100,000 were left out in the cold, and clueless.
At 2.30. nobody came on to tell the good people anything.
I HATE when that happens. I felt like I had been stood up. If you say you are going to do something, well then DO IT.
The game was a shutout: 8-0. Cardinals won with some rookie pitcher. I could have cared less. Couldn’t they have at least had a small news break about the electric situation…like around the seventh inning?
Sure they could have…I wondered: I know life goes on, but after all…come on.
It’s a little bit after 10pm on a Sunday night as I am writing this, and it’s being reported that three Storm Chasers lost their lives, killed by the tornado’s in Oklahoma trying to get a good shot for the big News channels.
How stupid is that? Are they that hard up for ratings? What do they tell these guys?
“If you can get IN the tornado and get a good shot, it’s an extra bonus for ya!”
And what about this business that they don’t really want to admit to a tornado until they have ‘professional’ come out and declare it such. Is that for insurance purposes?
Insurance agent: Uh…I know you lost the whole roof to your house sir, and your car is over two blocks in a tree, but nobody has really confirmed that there even WAS a tornado and so, I will have to list this as wind damage, and of course, we can’t be liable for any water damage caused by the storm, or your fence that is blown down. That’s was added to your policy last year.
I’m not sure what I got out of this: But it seems to me that there’s a real disconnect in the media, not only about the seriousness of our politician’s crimes, but the worsening natural disasters that are hitting the United States. Fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes…are good for business. Cars are destroyed, houses have to be rebuilt, food gets spoiled, this is all good for the bottom line.
In the meantime, we don’t have to be attacked by any country…the weather is doing a good job of destroying us.
And in two days…it happens all over again.
You know where I’ll be. I’m flipping my bacon at 5.
For a man who is supposed to be brilliant, Obama sure doesn’t know much, but what he does know how to do is lie. But…like most serial liars, sooner or later, you just can’t keep up with all the lies, and you start digging that hole real deep, and then your time is up.
Obama lied, and continues to lie about Benghazi. No reporter has dared to ask Obama just exactly what was he doing on the night of the attack. They want everyone to think he told Hillary and Panetta to handle it, but even if that’s true, then it’s a serous dereliction of duty on his part. Obama is always bragging that he is the Commander-in -Chief, but his actions on the night those poor men were killed was egregious to a fault. According to the military experts, only a President could have given the order to stand down.
Today in the speech, Obama’s defense, (AND also Hillary’s) is that well, “Hey…we can’t protect people, and if they volunteer to go to dangerous places it’s not OUR fault if they get killed.”
What kind of cock-a-mammie BS is that?
Of COURSE it’s your fault. Would you send your child to cross a major highway everyday, because you didn’t have a car, but you needed milk? Your kid because he wants to please you, runs across the highway to get it. You figure he knows the dangers therefore it’s not your fault if he gets hit? Or even killed? It’s pretty much the same logic.
Soldiers at least have weapons. You can’t send people into a hotbed of Muslims without protection. Obama admits they did not have enough protection, but he’s trying to fix that. Uh..gee…nice of you to give it some thought Mr. ‘President.”
To Obama, all public servants are expendable.
Obama’s defense on the ‘side show’ that they all put on, was that he said the next day it was a terror attack. But he didn’t say that. He said the world “terror” but did not say that it was a terror attack. Just because he mentioned the word generically doesn’t mean it was a declarative statement. It was NOT.
And then, another lie: Watch the first sentence of this video, and tell me if that man is NOT lying.
Obama says he just found out about the IRS auditing and attacking tea party patriots on the news, with the rest of us. And if you believe that big sucker, than you believe that we should all start eating bugs, and putting our fingers through our nose because they say it’s good for us.
Carney said the IRS inspector general notified the White House counsel’s office during the week of April 22 that it was completing a review of the IRS office in Cincinnati that targeted conservative political groups for special examination.
Janet Napolitano made tea party patriots officially on the terrorist watch list at Homeland Security, and of course Obama was aware of that. Why is he not outraged at that? I was outraged. Weren’t you?
Nobody believes he is THAT stupid. And now the talking point is: Well other Presidents have done it…so no big deal. Nixon was impeached on that criminal act, but this is Obama. He’s black. You can’t impeach him. (And that’s another lie. )
Obama is not just a liar, he’s a liar of great magnitude. His lies could fill up the Guinness Book of Records for most lies told in history.
And he likes to play Good cop/bad cop. He sends his soldiers out to attack, take down, destroy, and conquer, and when they break the law, he calls them bad boys and girls, and he will punish them, and of course that’s another big fat lie.
It’s only a matter of time before Obama’s tells so many lies, he can’t keep up with them all.
And so…the liar-in-chief is following others in history…and there are too many to count. But here’s a quote by some ‘old’ guys that could be said about Obama.
Benjamin Disraell once said about Daniel O’Connell, (Irish politician)
A systematic liar and a beggarly cheat: a swindler and a poltroon. He had committed every crime that does not require courage.
And that’s putting it nicely.
“Enemy of the State” is one of my favorite movies. Will Smith plays the main character, and he is hunted by the NSA because, although, he doesn’t know it, he was slipped a video of a Senator having someone murdered. It’s a great action film, but I wonder how many people believed in what the film was trying to educate the American public on: Everything we say or do, can be, without warrant..observed. The fact is, all of our data is being stored. The new technology that we are all excited about, is being used by our government to spy on us….and yet, we all are conditioned that it’s necessary.
If you talk about this to ANYONE..they always say, “Well hey! I’m not doing anything wrong, why should I worry?”
Or…as they once said in Nazi Germany, “They didn’t come after ME..I wasn’t Jewish, so I just didn’t worry about it.”
It was around the time of that movie, (1998) that I started noticing blackouts when I was listening to the radio. I couldn’t blame them on just random radio waves causing static, because I observed that they always happened right when some conservative talk show host was about to reveal something sinister about our government. They happened when I listened to Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones on Coast to Coast, and many other stations. They still happen time and again, but ONLY when some secret is about to be revealed, so no…I don’t believe my neighbor is turning on his Wi-Fi at the exact same time I’m waiting for the secret to be revealed. Nope—- because this even happens when I’m listening to the radio in my car at the exact moment when I am going, “Wow…I can’t BELIEVE they are going to talk about this…finally…somebody is going to talk about this!” And then you hear the first word and then—–ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…
Last night I was listening to the radio, and George Noory was interviewing a man who’s FACEBOOK account had been taken down…because he put up a Gandhi quote:
The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.
Evidently, this is happening to many conservatives sites. I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, because frankly, I think it’s a government dream which is gathering information on you, and your friends, and every single thing about you. And how does this make us any different than China? When Obama gathers all the heads of the great social media sites in the White House, it’s not to talk about his golf game.
He is collaborting with them.
According to an article on Drudge: China has tightened internet controls, legalizing the deletion of posts or pages which are deemed to contain “illegal” information.
So, now we are starting it here. We are becoming China.
Because this is happening in bits and pieces, no one is much concerned about this. But yesterday I checked out a book at the library, and for the first time (I’m been checking out library books for over 50 years.) I found blocks of paragraphs …just blacked out. (see photo)
So, they couldn’t block the book, but now it seems the government can blank out what they don’t want the public to read.
Add up all these little bits and pieces and you can see what’s coming.
Now, the aim is to “fundamentally” change America, and destroying our Bill of Righs..free speech, guns, and right to privacy is already in the making. And the words of Sam Donaldson are freightening. He indicates that tea party people’s ideas are old and outdated, but the fact is, these old and outdated rights of freedom are being replaced with the new tyranny of soft communism…and Sam considers himself privy to the “new America” where one man will decide just about everything.
The tea party people are for freedom. It’s that simple.
The “tea party” people, are being attacked like the Jews of old. And pretty soon, putting up any quotation from the Constitution will be taken down.
It’s been done bit by bit…on purpose, but be prepared for one day to wake up, and like my friend Mona says…on our TV will be…”THE STATE.”
And if you don’t go along with it…you will be…the enemy. If you are a “tea party” American patriot…you already are.
Remember…once upon a time Sam Adams head was on the top of King George’s list. You are in…good company.
Our founders gave us the best Constitution in the world…let’s not lose it.
“I propose issuing Special Drawing Rights that the rich countries would pledge for the purpose of providing international assistance. ” George Soros
IF Obama loses the election, you will hear one of two thing: It was either because Mitt had more money, or it’s because tea party people are racist. That’s what they will blame it on. That will give the Obama supporters an excuse to not only riot, but go knock out more than a few grocery checkers.
Nobody suggests we hide the Mountain Dew now.
When McCain lost the election, everybody knew why he lost, and most people blamed it on the Republican party for running him in the first place. He was the most liberal candidate they could have run against Obama. What the HELL were they thinking? The only point in which he was conservative, was his almost consistent jingoes on whatever war we are in.
And then we got the McCain-Feingold act, which lead to the reason— I had such a bad day yesterday.
Let me explain: Yesterday, was “clean the fridge day.”
I turned on the TV as background to my “cleaning my fridge” chore, and by random, I found a NEW Direct TV station called “Current.”
Dummy me…I thought CM meant…Country Music. (Nobody’s Perfect.) I listened as I threw out last week’s leftovers.
The first program was a sweet, soppy piece on Obama. Obama was a BRILLIANT professor of law, adored by his students they said. They showed pictures of him talking in some library when he was a ‘professor’ and so now, dear voter, you should have known what a brilliant man he was…and still is. We didn’t think we had to tell you…you just should have known!
Right after that coronation crap, came a program called, “The Mormon Candidate.” According to this, Mitt Romney, horrors of all horrors, wears special underwear and belongs to the most insidious cult ever invented by man: The Mormons. Mitt’s grandfather was a polygamist. They swear an oath to “slit throats” and I quote here: “This man who may end up in the White House!”
My milk might not survive. My cucumbers were swiveling at the very thought.
The contrast between both segments could not have been written with more bias as to which man was being promoted as a great leader. Never mind the hypocrisy of the subject of polygamy…something that is entrenched in the Muslim religion and which Obama has never said a word against. At least the Mormons don’t stone their wives, or cut off their hands, or beat and kill them. And if Mitt’s habit of wearing Mormon underwear is his biggest crime—-I think we might be safe.
This Obama hypocrisy overwhelmed me as I threw out my cherry tomatoes…which…Have you noticed, only last about a day before they rot?
The next program was about the poor souls in Liberia. The rich, nasty oil companies have come in and literally killed millions— contaminated their water, and all they have left is to fight back and become terrorists against the greedy oil companies. They kidnap, and kill…and force those rich bastards to put up barbed wire around their golf courses…but they give their kids the oil to drink to cure the measles.
(Let’s send them the Mountain Dew. )
It was at that moment, that I found some terrorists of my own in my produce drawer. Rotten green onions had melted into some kind of horrible gook, which infected the lettuce, and that’s what happens when you don’t give the green onions enough money.
They start killing everything off.
After Liberia came the next program…legalizing Marijuana. It opened with 150,000 people attending a Marijuana festival in Seattle. Oh heavenly day! White people roamed free, got high, shared joints, and talked about communes and the Grateful Dead.
BUT…they interviewed an X-Banker who was rolling in dough from his newfound pot producing company.
Obama’s new jobs plan: Don’t build pipelines: Grow Grass!
But get this: Even though Colorado white people are spending their days making big bucks off of selling grass…the blacks in New York are being stopped and searched, and if they have a joint on them…they go to jail.
It’s racist plot against the poor minorities who, unlike the white people in California, can’t just enjoy their joints without being racially molested by the NYPD.
By the time the program got to the “right-wing” Nazi’s in Russia, I was ready to throw a rather freezer burned 4 pound pork roast at my ‘NOT HD TV.”
So, Joyanna…you may ask—Why do you blame McCain/Feingold for any of this?
In my usual way: I call it the Jurassic Park Chaos With a Headache Theory,….Other people call it a full moon.
The American people did not demand campaign finance reform, anymore than we demanded Obamacare. George Soros funded groups like Media Matters and MOVEon.org…to push that though Congress: Here’s the reason from Horowitz:
By pushing McCain /Feingold through Congress, Soros cut off the Democrats’ soft money supply. By forming the Shadow Party, Soros offered the Democrats an alternate source…one which he personally controlled. As a result, the Democrats are now heavily perhaps irretrievably dependent on Soros. it seems reasonable to suppose that from its inception campaign finance reform was a Soros power play to gain control of the Democratic Party.
AND…Al Gore owns Current TV. George Soros funded Al Gore’s Presidential run. The Clintons, Al Gore, and Barack Obama are all in the Shadow control now… of George Soros.
George Soros wants to legalized drugs, have a one world government controlled by a few elites (him of course) and keep Obama in Power. In his one world banking Government he wants to redistribute wealth from rich countries to poor countries, because that’s why Muslims and terrorist commit crimes:
Because…they are poor. Nobody suggests we send them some Mormon underwear. I hear it’s magic.
The good news is: My fridge looks great, no thanks to John McCain, who if he had not been such a liberal ninny…Current TV would never exist.
So much for sour grapes.
I was a BIG Doctor Who fan. My favorite doctor was Tom Baker of course…and just to meet the man, I donated my P.A. system for a convention, where I made up taped cassettes of Space Movies. If you donated something to the Dr. Who Convention (here in St. Louis) you got to go to the private party and met Tom Baker himself.
So, picture me. In a small hotel room, listening to a bunch of whiny space cadets, and in walks my big crush…with that big English smile of his, and immediately about 15 girls surrounded him and I knew that I couldn’t get even near him.
Therefore, I drank at the bar. And I drank some more. And then, I pushed my way to the front of the crowd and Tom Baker went into what I’m sure was the most brilliant conversation ever said to any human, and he talked about 30 minutes right to my face.
And I had NO idea what he said. It was beyond, not only my intellect, but my inebriated comprehension. As soon as he was done, I sat down on the nearest step and didn’t get up. He must have known I was drunk because before he left the room, he grabbed my face in-between those big hands of his and said “Goodbye My little drummer girl!”
And so, from that moment on, my 10-year-old son got to stay up late on Sunday Nights, past midnight, untill he was well into high school, just to watch Dr. Who with his mom. I figured he could learn a bigger vocabulary from watching Dr. Who, than anything taught at his public school. And I was right.
Which brings me to THIS: We now have a gay Dr. Who running the Universe. If not for Craig’s marvelous rendition of Dr. Who…I would say something. Wait…I am going to say something: Gays can be many things…but they should NOT be TimeLords. That’s just my Nobody Opinion.
Before you watch this video…take a look at this video, which I found on Drudge this morning, I could NOT believe my eyes. Some kids were shouting USA! USA! USA! after a basketball win. Not so strange…this happened in America.
San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players. When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison. Players from a school with mostly white ones.
So…the other team was mostly Mexicans….kids who do not love America, but are being told this was their stolen land..they are entitled to it. It’s got to be hard for the American kids to have to put up with their taunts.
Wow. Nobody is more racist than me. Are you a USA racist fan too? We should get together and have some racist parties…maybe put a couple hundred old Glory’s up on posts and have a big barbecue. Drink Sam Adams beer.
This is VERY scary.
I searched all over YOUTUBE for a copy of this video so I could post it, and I couldn’t find it. BUT…I did run across this nobody. Here’s a man, who was as shocked, and appalled about this insanity as me. Be forwarned there is a lot of cussing going on because this man is angry, as well he should be. But..sometimes, foul deeds cause the foul langauge. I don’t think foul language is enough for these school idiots. They should all be fired and the kids who they are insulting should be given metals.
I salute this man: He said it all.
Here’s the problem: our schools are so federally controlled, and our pampered union teachers so unafraid of the taxpayers who pay their salaries, they will take out any thing you say to them that they don’t agree with on your child. You know it. I know it. They will use that fear to control any parent. Therefore, many of the parents will stay silent on this abomination.
This silence has been going on for too long.
Any American now, just by saying USA to Mexicans, can be considered racist. That IS the government policy. Remember that the Bush family is for the North American Treaty, and would agree with this punishment.
I never thought that in my country, I would witness a News Reporter actually be ashamed of kids shouting USA at a sports event.
So, I suggest we all become the biggest racist we can. USA! USA! USA! I’m going to start using that phrase more often.
I think I’ll paint it on my roof.
Any man or woman who is not mad about this is a fool….or an illegal immigrant. I don’ know who this guy is: but he’s Nobody’s Fool.
Nobody Remembers: Whitney Houston
Funny how this stuff happens…whenever there is a big political debate going on, or some fundamental change in our America, some Diva dies. I’m not quite sure what was going on when Michael Jackson went to sleep, but it got Obama’s big fight (was it health care?) off the pages for a good two weeks.
Nobody is starting to see a pattern here.
So, the diva Whitney overdoses in a bathtub RIGHT before the Grammy’s. Won’t that bring in millions of more viewers? Everyone will be tuning in: Looking for her partner in drugs, Bobbie Brown, to cry, and her daughter’s fame as an actress and singer to skyrocket. Her timing was impeccable. It you are going to die..pick the perfect time to make sure you’re immortalized by your peers.
I wish I could say I was sad about this, but I was never a big fan. While everyone can admire, how much she had to practice to reach the perfections of her own voice, she had the best to learn from. Dionne Warwick was her aunt. Aretha Franklin was her Godmother. If you can’t learn from those two women, you might as well hang it up.
Whitney made a lot of people a lot of money. And millions of us small-town musicians had to try and imitate her..which was no small task. While I have many of her hits and albums, I never bothered to listen to them…I had to ‘sing’ them, so to me it was torture.
I still prefer Dolly Parton’s “I will always love you” to Whitney’s. I cry when I hear Dolly. I…simply study Whitney vocal abilities, but she never evokes any emotion for me. That’s just me. To millions of fans, Whitney was the “GOD” of voice until..
Mariah Carey. It’s must have been a hard blow. There was no way that Whitney could compete with Mariah. She was pushed off her throne by a more competent and God given vocal cord that could amaze everyone.
And Mariah played sexy. It sold.
It wasn’t much after the success of Mariah that Whitney got into Bobby Brown, and became the cocaine Diva. Still the Diva, she told Oprah that Bobby and her laced grass with cocaine, they NEVER did crack. That was beneath her. (Do we laugh here? )
And so..Why should I feel bad about someone like that? How could she do that to her daughter?
Many of us nobodies can’t for the life of us figure out how all these very rich and famous people kill themselves with drugs. Whitney lost her voice doing all those drugs, the once most beautiful voice in the world, was being laughed at. It was downhill for her..and only a matter of time.
I found this picture of her going WTF? She was the favorite at the C-Pac convention. And her expression here is just how I feel about Tony Bennett’s statement. (I love this picture)
Upon hearing about Whitney’s death, Tony Bennett said this:
“First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now, the magnificent Whitney Houston,” he is quoted as saying in the Hollywood Reporter. “I’d like every person in this room to campaign to legalize drugs.”
“Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam,” said Bennett, who battled drug addiction in the late 70s.”No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor to get it.”
Right Tony. Let’s legalize all those drugs so that all the doctors can assure us all that all the diva’s and idiotic addicts WON”T kill themselves.
Instead of using this as a lesson to our kids to NOT use drugs because obviously they can kill you…we get—
LET”S LEGALIZE DRUGS!
Nobody Thinks that Tony will use this opportunity to push the political agenda to get drugs legalized in the United States because only a drugged nation will sit idly by and let Obama’s plans to further destroy America. What’s Tony getting to push George Soros’s agenda, one conspiracy theorist might ask?
If we go by history, when Obama decides to cancel the elections, Angelina Jolie will die of a drug overdose. Brad Pitt will be left with all those kids. And it will happen right before the Oscars. And if THAT happens, then I think it’s safe to say, there’s more to this than, WTF. The new phrase will be OMGWAS!
(Oh My God, We Are Screwed!)
Good Christians fear not: Nobody is trying to make fun of the Christian religion.
I thought this was a very creative way to help ME figure out, all that I don’t know about the internet!
(Thanks to JR)
As fast as the story came out, was about as fast as it was forgotten, but it was big news: Caroline Kennedy decided it was time for the world to hear “the rest of the story” from her mother, Jackie Kennedy…the woman who survived.
Arthur Schlesinger had interviewed Jackie after Jack’s death, in 1964, and she said things that had they had been released at the time she said them: would have caused more of a stir. So, you have to ask the question: Why did they take such a long time to release them?
As LBJ would say, in politics, nothing is a coincidence. (Or was it LBJ quoting FDR? )
Jackie, it seems, did not suffer fools. Unless of course it was her husband Jack. She had this to say about some very famous people of her time:
She called Indira Gandhi “a real prune — bitter, kind of pushy,” and said she had told Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at a dinner to stop boring her with statistics on Ukraine. (He laughed.)
But it was her extreme dislike of Martin Luther King that was the most…shall we say, to this Nobody “refreshing”. Evidently, the FBI was recording him, and she heard him say some pretty nasty things about Jack’s funeral.
After being told by her husband of some of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s alleged sexual peccadilloes after “that freedom march thing,” she called the civil rights leader “a phony.”
“I just can’t see a picture of Martin Luther King without thinking, you know, that man’s terrible.”
Gee…and Martin Luther King’s memorial just went up in the National Mall. Good timing Caroline, you’re mother would be proud.
Nobody Remembers one particular phone conversation of Jackie’s that I had heard on the radio…LBJ was on the other line. Her voice was almost a complete imitation of Marilyn Monroe’s. She sounded fake, breathy, and she was so sweet and obsequious to LBJ, I felt like I was listening to phone sex..
Jackie, like many people in history, think LBJ had her husband killed. So, it was not just Martin Luther King she was horrified of, it was also LBJ. No wonder she used all her charm.
“Jack said it to me sometimes. He said, ‘Oh, God, can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon were president?”‘ she recalled. (And they were right.)
“If they’re killing Kennedys, then my children are targets…I want to get out of this country.”
And so she did. She married one of the richest men in the world (Aristotle Onassis) to protect her children, and moved.
You have to say one thing about Jackie—She was born a thoroughbred, and stuck to that stamp of elite all through her life, with grace. She made the elites of our time look like Snookie pigs in a mud slide.
Jackie was by all accounts a terrific mother. Many thought that her son would have been President one day…and the country certainly would have been better off without the Clintons in power…if they had not have killed him.
Oh…excuse me, his plane crashed…
Someday I hope to hear another story about how grandma Caroline thinks that her brother’s death was not an accident…
Anyway, Jackie survived, and thankfully did not live to see her son’s plane crash.
Nobody Thinks that the release of this very important information from the Democrats dynasty, right before an upcoming presidential election, shows that at least the last Kennedy standing, wanted to put the record straight.
They will hide this revelation: It’s not as important as “jobs” they will say. But in the world of politics, it’s nice to know that at least one person from history who was there, had enough courage to tell the American people the truth.
It’s about friggin, time.
