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.
If you think that THIS was not staged by Obama, because that’s not how he works his propaganda machine…let me tell you a little story, and why I’m sure that ‘heckler’ was a plant:
Years ago, I was playing piano in the lounge/bar of a Doubletree Hotel, in Chesterfield, Missouri. I was pretty far away from the main lobby. Back at that time, George H.W. Bush was Vice President. Everyone knew he was going to spend the night at the hotel. But, what I saw that night completely shocked me. I was there early that day, but so were his bodyguards. They came into the bottom floor of the hotel and checked every single lamp, every bottle, the piano, me, the potted plants, my music book, the bottle in the bar, the carpet, just about everything. And this was in a room that wasn’t even near the lobby. The only thing they didn’t look under was my dress. And then they did the same thing…three more times.
I managed to sneak a peek outside the lobby door that night on my break, and was amazed to see a long line of expensive limousines pulling up to the front of the hotel. I counted 13 of those, and another ten just regular cars following him. All he did, was get out of the car, go to the elevator, and up to the room.
All that, for the Vice President.
Now…fast forward twenty years. Obama shuts down whole cities. Hell, he shuts down whole countries when he travels. Millions of people hate the President right now. Do you really think that the people they put behind him for his photo-ops are not carefully, hand-picked? Do you really think they just pick people out of the audience that day?
Then you’re a special kind of stupid.
Another clue that this guy was a plant, was in his response. Notice how Obama did not get upset, and was totally in control and sure to mention that if he had the sole power to grant amnesty he would…but for the law. The “uh guys, its’ okay” was all part of the act. He doesn’t WANT you to think that it was staged so that was a nice little touch. What he is putting in everyone’s mind is that he should be given complete power. It’s mind manipulation. That mean old Tea Party Congress and those American laws are getting in the way of illegals getting amnesty and the American dream.
Today Glenn Beck was asking everyone to pray for Obama, because of this ‘heckler” behind him in this video. That man, Glenn thought, could have really hurt Obama. I don’t know if Glenn Beck has no clue how this man will go to the ends of the earth to protect his own self, or if he really thinks people can get that close to any President.
Obama has cut off photographers from the White House. He has his own food taster. He has shut down the White House. He is about as paranoid as one person can get.
Nobody Knows if Obama will continue to ‘stage’ people ‘fainting’ and begging for him to ‘help’ them, so that he can continue to get all he wants, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be the only one who will keep saying he is staging these events himself for propaganda purposes.
After Benghazi, he ‘staged’ three weeks of blaming the whole thing on a video. This kind of stuff, is thought up in political game rooms, and done with great relish. They lie, they cheat, they steal, and powerful men have been known to murder to get what they want.
So, take it from me—I was in the entertainment business most of my life, and I know a staged act when I see one:
Staging Obama! Staging Obama! Sta…..ging…….. Obama!
On the day that Kennedy was assassinated I remember they let us out of school early. I was sad to hear it, but more sad for those around me. Children were crying on the bus ride home. My parents, really didn’t have much to say about the event to my brother and I, because we had heard them talking many times about how they didn’t trust Kennedy. Both my parents were WWII veterans, and to them, Kennedy didn’t have the right war experience. He was a rich man’s son, was all show, and we had to dig bunkers in the back yard because the man was so incompetent.
Today, on all the Sunday talk shows, JFK was the top subject. All the pundits came to praise the man, and stayed to the historical record: Oswald was the lone gunman, and all these conspiracy nuts out there writing pages of conspiracy theories, are just that: conspiracy nuts. In fact, Bob Schieffer, on Face the Nation, went so far as to say Lee Harvey Oswald was a right-wing radical. And of course, Texas, where all those right-wing nut jobs live, was more responsible for his death than most anybody.
What? What does this tell us? Our media is state controlled and has been for decades.
Three men have come out with books on the killing of Kennedy recently, in order to take advantage of the 50th anniversary of his death: Bill O’Reilly, Jerome Corsi, and Roger Stone. Bill O’Reilly, takes the ‘Oswald acted alone” course which he always does, because he is part of the ‘insiders’ of Washington. But Corsi and Stone, have a different take, which is—-
LBJ, (that right-wing terrorist), was the man that killed Kennedy. (Along with the help of Dulles)
I had read this theory about 15 years ago. I had found a book at some old garage sale, written by LBJ’s lawyer. He admitted that he really thought, due to his legal associations with LBJ, and LBJ’s ‘admittance’ on his deathbed, that LBJ was guilty.
Good luck finding that book anywhere.
Last night on Coast to Coast, Roger Stone, the author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy, said this: LBJ was the man who had him assassinated, (because he was the man who would benefit the most) and he also concluded he killed Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. Nobody Thinks that most of the evidence that Kennedy was killed by his vice president, not only makes sense, but for so many prominent people to take the stance that our government would never do such a thing—is just such nonsense it borders almost on absurdity. It shows uncontestable ignorance of not only history, but human behavior.
But…the main goal is, and always will be— to protect the OFFICE of the Presidency at all costs. Lie, bully, cheat but protect that office to the point of death, because it represents what the office must have beyond a shadow of a doubt: complete legitimacy. The illusion of a perfect benevolent leader must never be refuted. And so this year, they brought in Tom Hanks to put out some strong propaganda to get those people who are actually thinking out loud in public—- to stop it. He made a movie about it: Parkland.
Stone says this on his website.
Now let’s circle back to Tom Hanks, who cared enough to capitalize on the 50th anniversary of the president’s death, but not enough to research what actually happened on Nov. 22, 1963. Parkland makes no mention of the strange wounds found by the emergency room workers, because this would be contrary to the autopsy performed under military supervision at Bethesda Naval Hospital. The grapefruit sized exit wound in the back of Kennedy’s head, described by more than forty witnesses, is also missing from the film. Even Tom Robinson, the mortician who prepared Kennedy for his casket, clearly indicated the large exit wound on the back of the head was “pretty much between” Kennedy’s ears. The Warren Commission went against the description of virtually every eyewitness and concluded that the back of Kennedy’s skull was intact, again concealing a shot from the front… Tom Hanks also followed suit.
At the time, the Secret Service was under orders, and the man at the helm was the one who gained the most from the president’s assassination: Lyndon Johnson. Lyndon Johnson ordered that the presidential limousine–which was in fact the crime scene–be immediately destroyed.
( Remember when Clinton ordered our Navy carriers to quickly get John Jr. plane out of the ocean and immediately destroyed?)
And so…if you realized that Kennedy was killed for political reasons, whether to stop him from getting rid of the Federal Reserve, or stopping our involvement in Vietnam, or to stop LBJ from going to jail, (He was by all accounts a big time criminal with ties to the mob)— you realize that the leaders of the Western world are no better than some communist dictators.
If they want to destroy their enemies, by killing them…they just do.
And if people believe that LBJ killed Kennedy, then anything is possible, is it not?
Nobody Thinks there were plenty of reason for the Royal Family to kill Diana. And JFK Jr. was going to run for Congress in New York, which would have prevented Hillary from running for President, because she needed that seat. The Clintons have a long line of mysterious murders in their past, which is ignored by all but the few.
And what about Jackie?—- That sweet, innocent, high society beauty? It’s Jackie’s reaction that always bothered me. If you ever listened to Jackie, she talked JUST like Marilyn Monroe, in that very fake raspy breath. I remember hearing her talking to LBJ one day on the radio, (not long after Jacks’ death) and it was almost as if she was giving him sex over the phone. It was astounding to me. Was she in on it?
Was she finally tired of Jack screwing everything in sight?
In the next few days, we will all have to go once again through the reels of the glamorized fantasy of what a great man he was, and conservatives will be pointing out the good things he did: like lowering taxes and getting us to the moon. And compared to Obama, Kennedy was a sweetheart. Despite the democrats milking his legacy every year because they need all the help they can get, the truth seems to be that LBJ had to get the help of the mob and the CIA to pull it off. Is it any wonder the tremendous PR they have created to guard the democratic party? They HAD to do it. It was a matter of survival to them all.
Jackie made sure that the real truth will not be looked till way beyond 2050— Too bad we can’t ask her why. And no one in Congress will ever look into it, because what IS important to our “state leaders” is the myth of the ever loving, caring, never hurt a soul –honest United State President, leader of the ‘free’ world, and that image remains untarnished. You know, they would never kill people.Especially a famous one.
Oh…yes—Stone worked for Nixon, and Nixon admitted that LBJ killed Kennedy, one night after he had a little too much to drink.
The question is: Do you believe him, or is this just another right-wing conspiracy? Many Americans are starting to wonder….
—When your local town is filled with just as many crooks as Washington.
Right next door to me, is the city of Florissant, and the town’s representative, Steve Webb, just did his very best imitation of Jesse Jackson Jr.
CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) – Missouri State Representative Steve Webb of Florissant has been charged with violating laws for reporting and use of campaign money. He has been charged with a felony for stealing campaign funds and spending them on himself.
According to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report he has received $28,916 worth of gifts from lobbyists. Nearly two-thirds of the value of those gifts came from utilities. He serves on the House Utilities Committee.
St. Louis County Police say that Webb asked for a political contribution of $3,000 from Community Loans of America. He told them that the donation would be used to sponsor a reception held by the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus in Washington, D.C. Webb then deposited the funds into a bank account he established with the name of Missouri Black Caucus. Then he transferred the funds into his personal bank account and used the funds for personal use.
And just to prove that the local democratic women can steal just as well as the men, we have another robber of money, She just got caught:
ST. LOUIS • A Florissant woman was indicted Wednesday on 24 counts of tax fraud.
Federal prosecutors in St. Louis say Evelyn Silas, 53, an employee with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in St. Louis, filed fraudulent tax returns in order to collect tax money for relatives, friends and herself from 2009 to 2011. Authorities say she filed phony business and individual returns resulting in losses of an estimated $90,000.
Silas often directed the IRS to send her family and friends’ tax refunds to her own bank account, the indictment says. Silas would then forward a portion of the refund to the taxpayer and keep some for herself.
(Bet you’ve had this happen in YOUR little town:)
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A former probation officer pleads guilty to supplying cocaine to judges in St. Clair County.
Federal agents say James Fogarty admitted he sold drugs to two St. Clair County Judges; Judge Michael Cook and deceased Judge Joe Christ. Christ died of a cocaine overdose.
Fogarty went straight to jail after pleading guilty and will be sentenced to 60 months in February. The Judge warned that he may cancel this deal if prosecutors find Fogarty’s cocaine killed Christ.
Wow. We have congressmen stealing money from the public till, a government worker who wanted her equal opportunity to steal from the public till, and judges dying from cocaine overdose.
And now the GOOD news:
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– The St. Louis Airport Commission took a major step toward its latest attempt to become a major player in international cargo. The beginnings of a deal are in place with a Texas company to create a customs hub for goods going in and out of Mexico, which would literally and figuratively replace the ill-fated “China Hub” project.
If the judges weren’t dead from bad cocaine, they would have been in ecstasy to learn that soon, coming to St. Louis, will be the Mexicans cartels, who will no longer have to drive their trucks of cocaine through Texas. Just think—- James Fogarty wouldn’t have had to do jail time.
And if you live in Florissant and are not fortunate enough to have a government job , don’t worry. They will need help unloading all those planes.
And THIS is why I don’t go out of the house, unless I have to.
—just why Rob Ford did NOT claim that the video of him smoking crack was a government conspiracy? After all…it worked for Mayor Barry. It worked so well, the public went back to the polls and reelected him as the crack-smoking lovable Mayor of Washington D.C.!
What does that tell you about D.C.? (Politicians must do a LOT of cocaine)
Being as I’m ‘unemployed’ right now…according to the government that doesn’t count me, I had the TV on all day. Every cable news station had us all waiting…for hours and hours, and then a few MORE hours, for the exciting news that another douche-bag politician was caught on tape doing something illegal, and he was expected to speak about his admitted drug use.
But…Rob Ford, the great mayor of Toronto, had a plan, one that politicians use all the time, and that is: Make the world wait. It builds up anticipation and makes you appear important, because all the world is waiting…you must be a great man, why, even the President of the United States would not have gotten a whole day’s attention…
And then, the great Rob, (Who obviously smokes a LOT more weed) said this:
“I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing,” Ford said. “On Oct. 27 of 2014, I want the people of this great city to decide whether they want Rob Ford to be their mayor” (Notice how he speaks of himself in the third person? As if…he’s not even there?)
Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters earlier outside his office. “There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor. That’s why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don’t even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in.”
Darn. I was waiting for him to say that some tea party person that had mistakenly been admitted into the country…actually got him drunk, handed him a pipe, and then took out the video. Or even better yet, someone deep in the Canadian government wanted to shame him. DARN.
And then, I read this:
On Tuesday, Ford’s brother, Doug, criticized Police Chief Bill Blair for saying he was “disappointed” in the mayor after police recovered the tape last week. Doug Ford called the chief’s comments “inappropriate” and “biased” and said Blair should step aside.
“We have the most political police chief we have ever seen,” said Doug Ford, an influential city councilor. “The police chief believes he’s the judge, the jury and the executioner.”
Gee…I’m so glad that Rob’s brother Doug was paying attention to the government officials who are doing their best to damn poor Rob Ford.
Nobody Knows, nor can fathom, why all the world’s politicians would fit more easily in East St. Louis than high office, and how they keep getting “elected.”
And Nobody Knows why the American press spent the whole damn day patiently waiting for Rob to show up. And Nobody Wonders if someday we will see a video replay of Marion and Rob together, smoking the great government crack conspiracy together in a hotel room in Rio, where they can claim that it was a right-wing conspiracy initiated by Castro, who is really dead.
This was one of the most important points brought up today.
Last week on Coast to Coast, John McAfee told the audience that anybody that went on the Obamacare site was setting themselves up for anything. He said there WAS no security. To set up security you need to test it for two months at least, and that wasn’t done, and he knows because he has SEEN the code.
He also said that anybody with just the least amount of knowledge could go in and drain your bank account. Think of how enticing that is to Obama and his dream IRS team?
Mike Rogers was making an excellent point, and notice how he was shut up by whoever was controlling the meetings. As he said: If you are running tests then your security is down.
All Kathleen kept saying was they were writing code and running tests.
There is no security, and who out there, after the NSA scandal is surprised?
Nobody Wins when representatives in Congress can’t even ask a legitimate question.
This week, the fight is clear: It’s the globalists against the American people. And the globalists include both parties.
Here’s something that I wish someone would point out: Obama, and his democrats are just as involved and working for the Fed and Wall Street as the Republicans, and nobody ever, ever, ever brings this up.
As you see in the above video, the President of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein (How’s THAT for a Wall Street name?) basically blames the whole dysfunction of the government on the tea party. No, he doesn’t say tea party, but he accuses them of wanting to default, and destroy the world. So does Christine Legarde of the IMF.
“But we say slow down because the point is not to contract the economy by slashing spending brutally now as recovery is picking up.”
What? It’s only picking up on Wall Street, because since the 2008 crash, the men on Wall Street have tripled their investments, thanks to the poor guy on mainstreet.
Nevertheless….here’s a top Wall Street King, who is fighting on the side of ‘President’ Obama, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and Harry Reid. They are complaining about the “people’ trying to hold on to whatever power they can. Now, normal, family-loving, country-loving, conservative people are considered radicals by the globalists. We…are the enemy.
One thing that is good coming out of all of this fight in Washington is now we are seeing very clearly, who the American people’s enemies actually are, and they are many.
To me, it’s much simpler: There are the globalists, who are basically fascists and could care less about the American people, and then there are the politicians who really care about America.
That’s why they hate Ted Cruz. Basically, with the help of only a few people, he has singlehandedly brought the American people back to the table of Congress…and Congress doesn’t like it one bit.
Boehner is in a hard place. If he gives into Obama, the Republican party is gone. The reason John McCain and Romney lost is because they weren’t Conservatives. If they run Jeb Bush, he will lose. There are simply not enough ‘independents’ to vote them in.
People will be hurting so badly with Obamacare they will blame the Republicans for not getting rid of it….so, he has to depend on the Senate to do all the dealing, and that’s Mitch.
Fareed Zakaria’s essay today was all about how Obama missed the all important meeting in Asia all because of the tea party people, and therefore China got all the big money deals. All I’ve heard from the CEO’s on TV and all the democratic pundits for decades is, ‘Why oh why can’t we be like China?”
Frankly, I wish every S-n of a &$^$& I’ve heard say that, would get off my TV and go live there.
Nobody Thinks—our big multinational companies which own our Congress…want Obamacare, and they want a strong leader at the top, who they can control, so they can compete with China. Congress is just messing up their day. It’s time consuming, and they have to WAIT whenever they have a request.
Who does Obama work for? He works for men like Lloyd Blankfein, and George Soros. And so did George W. Bush. And yet, every Wall Street Occupy gooney thinks all of Wall Street works for Republicans.
We did not need to bail out Wall Street. Even the liberal Vanity Fair admits huge crimes were committed by the bankers. Those people should lhave spent years in jail…where they could have gotten along very well with two other criminals who helped set that whole housing bubble up: Barney Frank and Bill Clinton. The stimulus money was stolen from the American people.
There is no money in Social Security now…just IOU’s. When the fines start rolling in from Obamacare, you can bet, all that money will be used for some other reason.
Why should anything be different? They just want more money. And as Margaret Thatcher once said, “The trouble with socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”
And that’s what happened in Poland. Just recently, Poland went into their own people’s pension accounts and stole half of their people’s retirement money. Obama has his eye on that option. And maybe this whole debt ceiling thing would give him just enough chaos for him to pull it off.
China, is already chopping at the bit, not because of the tea party, but because Obama is President. China said this at their Asian summit.
“As US politicians of both political parties are still shuffling back and forth between the White House and the Capitol Hill without striking a viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanised world,”
Today I was grocery shopping, and overheard two men discussing Washington….they were angry as they leaned over their shopping carts. It was clear, they were going to lose jobs, and money..
Yesterday, as I was trying to schedule a dentist appointment, a lady who handled the insurance started telling me about her life. She told me her son, was a restaurant manager with two kids. And they did not offer medical. He checked into Obamacare and found out it would cost him over $1700 a month just for his family. He can’t afford it.
Then she told me her husband wanted to retire, but if he did, he would have to pay $939 dollars a month. He worked for Fed-X. And then she decided to look into where she works, and found out it would cost them $1300 a month.
Nobody can afford what Obama is doing. Jay Carney goes on day after day about how affordable the rates are. This lady was really pissed off, because she can no longer go to her doctor.
“I am NOT going to give up my doctor.”
Imagine…I had just called to check on my insurance.
This weekend, the truckers of America are going to Washington D.C. People are mad in this country. Everybody thought the Republicans were going to surrender to Obama…because the people were mad.
Yeah..right…more like they were all looking at their stock portfolios’s after everyone thought that Obama would make a deal.
But..Obama means to have what he wants…or be damned.
I’m with these truckers. Obama’s birth certificate was a fraud. It’s been proved time and again by experts in the field. Even his social security card is a fraud.
So, keep on trucking guy! You can bet that Obama…will be out of town. (LoL!)
When you close down the White House, people can’t visit it, and they tend to not want to go to the gift shop, because why? Drudge reported today that the White House Gift shop is going bankrupt:
In another sign of the tough times in Washington these days, the White House Gift Shop, long run by a nonprofit group that helps uniformed Secret Service officers and their families, has gone broke. The Secret Service Uniformed Division Benefit Fund, which traces its roots to the 1940s and for years did business as the official White House Gift Shop, lists more than $600,000 in liabilities in a pending bankruptcy petition in Washington.
So, what’s going on here? Doesn’t Obama CARE about the men that risk their lives to protect him every day?
They are going bankrupt…BUT…have good heart my yuppies….they are expanding!
We are especially pleased to announce the forthcoming White House Gift Shop patriotic themed indoor park, gift shop megastore, two themed restaurants, and a full-service International Guest Center in downtown DC with project completion in 2018,” the site states.
And how much to you want to bet, that this new gift/golf/megastore/ will have Obama’s image all over it? This is a “promote the big government that you love” effort. Good lord.
How much do you want to bet that very little of the money goes to the Secret Service?
And just who exactly is going to pay for this, since the gift shop is already bankrupt? And…is Michelle STILL going to get her 87 Christmas trees even though they have closed the White House down to the public?
(Does a squirrel like nuts?)
It’s all about growing the Presidency into a dictatorship….and building a big propaganda promotional site so that the people can worship them, and their buddies in Congress, because they know that Americans are getting sick and tired of them all. I can see it now: Michelle will have her own whole foods restaruant. You will be able to buy pictures of McCain standing up against the Tea Parry. What a perfect place to rewrite history. And Obama will get a center food court statue.
Besides: we are not really sure he is going to leave now, are we?
HA! That’s a fine note to end the week with.
Nobody Knows when the White House Press core became so controlled. Ever since Obama became President, whenever he holds a press conference, he picks up a card, or looks down at the table, and gets to ‘pick’ the person whose question he wants to answer.
Probably, the questions are screened beforehand. Nothing like stacking the deck in your favor.
We saw that again today at Obama’s hour-long press conference. All the questions were very sympathetic towards Obama. But, John Boehner, on the other hand, got questions shouted out at him. Nobody Knows why Obama gets to pick and choose his questions, but we should acknowledge that it’s not fair or democratic.
And speaking of unfair…
Nobody Knows why illegal’s get to protest on the National Mall, but soldiers who sacrificed to GIVE them that right, are kept off. Nobody Knows, but Nobody Thinks it’s because Obama wants to punish all Americans’ who didn’t vote for him.
In fact, I just read this story from Drudge, about how far Obama is going to punish the old, the patriotic, the white, the non-minority people who did not vote for him. Read what happened to some kind folks in Yellowstone. (Really…how many blacks from Chicago go to Yellowstone every year?)
Read, if you can stomach it.
Nobody Knows why the politicians keep saying they are proud of being public servants, when now, many politician (Chuck Shumer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, Obama..Obama…Obama…) do nothing but harass the American people.
And speaking of harassing the American people….
Obama has nominated the first woman to head the Federal Reserve. (She must be a friend of Hillary’s.)
Janet Yellen, like Bernanke, was a distinguished college economics professor before joining the Fed. She taught at the University of California at Berkeley from 1980 until 1994 when President Bill Clinton chose her to join the Fed’s board in Washington. (So she IS a friend of Hillary!)
She served on the Fed’s board of governors until February 1997, when Clinton chose her to lead the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Janet Yellen would not only be the first woman to head the U.S. central bank; she also would be the first woman ever to head a major central bank anywhere in the world.
In the meantime…I had some thoughts about that shooting last week at the White House: You know, the one where the poor black lady was ramming the White House Barricades with her car?
Nobody knows just how many car chases I have seen on TV, but no matter how long the chase, the cops hardly ever kill the person. And if there is a kid in the backseat, they never do.
It should stand as a warning to us all…just how all the news outlets kept the killing of that poor girl as “justified.” Justified by who?
Nobody Knows…but we do know one thing: Even sticking a finger out and pretending to shot a gun, will get any school kid anywhere in America suspended for weeks…
But..not if you just happen to bring cocaine to class.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A preschooler reportedly brought eight bags of crack cocaine and $173.00 to a Philadelphia grade school Tuesday morning and was showing it off to classmates, police said.
Hell no. Obama used the stuff all the time….drugs don’t hurt people…just guns. (according to Obama.)
And I will bet you a ride to Mount Rushmore on the back of my horse, that Obama still does cocaine.
I’ve never done cocaine, but I once asked an addict what they liked about it.
“You feel like you’re the king of the world, you are invincible, you can do no wrong. You feel superhuman!”
But…Nobody Knows how you would prove it.
