Ron Paul possibly has raised more money than any other GOP candidate.  His supporters are among the most enthusiastic.  And yet, he still cannot win a primary.  Newt Gingrich’s campaign is floundering like a fish out of water, and by the way, for a fifty dollar fee you can get a picture taken with the man.  It remains to be seen as to what side Mitt Romney really is on.

And then there was Rick Santorum!  And Sarah Palin!

By now you have heard of Santorum’s “bullshit” comment and how New York Times journalist Jeff Zeleny asked Santorum if Romney “was the worst Republican in the country to run against Obama.”  By now you’ve heard of little Ricky’s tirade and how Zeleny was “distorting” Ricky’s words.  “That’s bullshit!”  And you can quote him on that.

However, in Racine, Wisconsin Santorum had this to say:  “Why would we put someone up who is uniquely – pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama. Why would Wisconsin want to vote for someone like that?”

Sounds pretty close to me.

There’s a couple of reasons why Santorum would characterize Zeleny’s question as “bullshit”.  1. Bad press is better than no press.  2. Fearing a loss to the GOP frontrunner, after his inflammatory comments, maybe Santorum felt he had to get on Romney’s good side.  You know, the best chance for the V.P. nomination.

Enter Sarah Palin with the obligatory ‘don’t cha know’ persona.

The former half-term governor of Alaska took to Fox News (where else) to voice her opinion.  Which brings me to another point: Do you know why Sarah Palin never goes to any other network other than Fixed News?  She would have to answer some real questions.

“It was good and it was strong and it was about time because he’s saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting conservative’s words (Zeleny’s words were not ‘twisting’.  If Ms. Palin could read Santorum’s words verbatim – oh, that’s right, she doesn’t know what that word means),” Palin said on Fox News late Monday night. “I was like welcome to my world Rick. And good on ya, (‘don’t cha know’ moment) don’t retreat (this is as overplayed as Git-R-Done).”

Meanwhile, Santorum said that a conservative that doesn’t take on a journalist from the New York Times isn’t “worth your salt” – as far as he’s concerned.

No, Ricky, a conservative that wants to tackle the real issues – by this I mean the Party of No for the sake of saying “No” when it comes to party lines – and sticking to real conservatism (unlike George W. Bush) makes you a conservative.

Taking on a liberal journalist from the New York Times doesn’t make you a conservative, it makes you – well, I don’t know what it makes you, but not conservative.

“I was glad that he called out this reporter,” Palin said. “He and the other candidates, all of them, they need to do more of this because believe me the American people are tired of what the leftist media continues to do to conservatives.”

Wrong again, Sarah.  The American people don’t know what their tired of.  You want to label something as bullshit?  How about a foreign policy that props up despots all in the name of “freedom”?  How about turning a once secular nation into a civil war zone?  How about excluding evidence that the United States gave Iraq it’s biological weapons and nuclear technology?  How about the sacrifice of American’s right all in the name of a bogus ‘war on terrorism’?

Santorum couldn’t aim for the toilet bowl unless the Republican establishment was holding it for him.

Dear Reader, today you have homework.  Your assignment is to find the nearest avid Fox News viewer and point out the double-standards of Faux News and its associations.  By now, you’ve probably been drenched in Rush Limbaugh’s scurrilous remarks of Sandra Fluke; comments that he says were an “attempt to be humorous.”

It may be something new to Rush – but then again he has made a living out of making off-color comments (the habitual ‘open my mouth and insert my big, fat stinky foot’ offender) – but most women, regardless if they deserve it or not, don’t like to be called a “slut” or a “prostitute”.

What’s more disturbing is the comment: “If we’re going to have to pay for this, then we want something in return, Ms. Fluke.  And that would be the videos of all this sex posted online so we can see what we’re getting for our money.”

So Rush Limbaugh likes porn?

Of course, he doesn’t.  He was just provoking, like he always does, right?

Besides the fact that Limbaugh had to stoop to the bottom of the rat-pool to pull out this gem to fill a few minutes on his nefarious talk show, the comments are defaming toward Ms. Fluke.

Granted, I am not for female contraception being paid for by taxpayers dollars other than medical reasons not associated with sex; with that being said, there were a multi-tude of various angles that Limbaugh could have approached the issue.  From a political perspective, perhaps?  As opposed to a slanderous one.

But that is what Limbaugh does, he provokes.  And he evidently provoked me.

By weeks end sponsors began to cancel support of Limbaughs show.

“For over twenty years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation.  I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.”

Sure you did, Rush.  Because that’s what you do.  That’s your M.O.!

The true absurdity is that over all this great country of ours, listeners and followers of Limbaugh are parrotting his remarks.  Already enamored with the “gift of God”, followers will see the left’s attack as clear vindication that Rush is right and the rest of us are all wrong.

But this is not the first time that Limbaugh has made derogatory comments and back-peddaled.  To list all the cases would cause you, Dear Reader, to read until dinner time.  However, Limbaugh’s dragging of political discourse through the muck and mire, and his subsequent one-eighty turn around, proves one point (two points, actually): In cases of the First Amendment in regards to corporate media – money talks.  And rush probably believes in free speech about as much as an adult believes in Santa Clause.  In short, Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer; nothing more, nothing less.

You know, I could find some sort of respect for Limbaugh – although, I would have to drudge the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to find any – if he had just stayed to his guns and gone down with the sinking ship.

If you are a Limbaugh fan and his treatment of an individual does not change your opinion of him one ioda, and it doesn’t cause you cancel your own support of his radio show (you must stop listening to his show), then your not worth the political oxygen that you breathe.

It’s decision time, Dear Reader.  Will it be the blue pill; the one that leads from the influence of the shameless and desolate soul that we have come to call Rush Limbaugh?  Or will it be the red pill; the one that keeps you in the trenches of political damnation.

As for me, I’m taking the blue pill; right along with my morning coffee.

Fox News brought us a lot of good things to blog about in 2010.  Good, that is, for

 us.  If it weren’t for Sarah Palin spouting nonsensical words and dubious phrases and saying that the President of the United States has no ‘cojones’ over the Arizona law and Jan Brewer (‘cojones’ is a Spanish word, by they way…someone might want to tell Sarah that), where would that lead us?

Oh, yeah, Neil Cavuto cutting from a speech by the First Lady in Shanksville, PA. and saying that President Obama was a ‘nobody’ on September 11, 2001.  We would see Glenn Beck crying on television.  Also, we would see Fox leading the charge of anti-Muslim propaganda and the double-standard elements Fox News’ own funding from a Muslim.

Ranker.com has put together the Top 10 Fox News Fails of 2010.  Enjoy!

In a speech to National Press Club President Kennedy once said: “The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society.”  The ideals that John F. Kennedy once stood for in preserving the right of the media and the American people to criticize it’s government died with him in Dallas, TX, November 22, 1963.

With the knowledge that is out there, I find it nearly impossible to believe that we are ‘fighting for our freedom’.  Remember, folks, The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.

Anyone who doesn’t believe that the US is an incipient fascist state needs only to consult the latest assault on civil liberty by Fox News. Instead of informing citizens, Fox News informs on citizens. Jason Ditz reports (antiwar.com Dec. 28) that Fox News “no longer content to simply shill for a growing police state,” turned in a grandmother to the Department of Homeland Security for making “anti-American comments.”

The media have segued into the police attitude, which regards insistence on civil liberties and references to the Constitution as signs of extremism, especially when the Constitution is invoked in defense of dissent or privacy or placarded on a bumper sticker. President George W. Bush set the scene when he declared: “you are with us or against us.”

Bush’s words demonstrate a frightening decline in our government’s respect for dissent since the presidency of John F. Kennedy. In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:

“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”

The press is not protected, Kennedy told the newspaper publishers, in order that it can amuse and entertain, emphasize the trivial, or simply tell the public what it wants to hear. The press is protected so that it can find and report facts and, thus, inform, arouse “and sometimes even anger public opinion.”

In a statement unlikely to be repeated by an American president, Kennedy told the newspaper publishers:

“I’m not asking your newspapers to support an administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people, for I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.”

The America of Kennedy’s day and the America of today are two different worlds. In America today the media are expected to lie for the government in order to prevent the people from finding out what the government is up to. If polls can be believed, Americans brainwashed and programmed by O’Reilly, Hannity, Beck, and Limbaugh want Bradley Manning and Julian Assange torn limb from limb for informing Americans of the criminal acts of their government. Politicians and journalists are screeching for their execution.

President Kennedy told the Newspaper Publishers Association that “it is to the printing press, the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news, that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: Free and Independent.” Who can imagine a Bill Clinton, a George W. Bush, or a Barack Obama saying such a thing today?

Today the press is a propaganda ministry for the government. Any member who departs from his duty to lie and spin the news is expelled from the fraternity. A public increasingly unemployed, broke and homeless is told that they have vast enemies plotting to destroy them in the absence of annual trillion dollar expenditures for the military/security complex, wars lasting decades, no-fly lists, unlimited spying and collecting of dossiers on citizens supplemented by neighbors reporting on neighbors, full body scanners at airports, shopping centers, metro and train stations, traffic checks, and the equivalence of treason with the uttering of a truth.

Two years ago when he came into office President Obama admitted that no one knew what the military mission was in Afghanistan, including the president himself, but that he would find a mission and define it. On his recent trip to Afghanistan, Obama came up with the mission: to make the families of the troops safe in America, his version of Bush’s “we have to kill them over there before they kill us over here.”

No one snorted with derision or even mildly giggled. Neither the New York Times nor Fox News (sic) dared to wonder if perhaps, maybe, murdering and displacing large numbers of Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen and US support for Israel’s similar treatment of Lebanese and Palestinians might be creating a hostile environment that could breed terrorists. If there still is such a thing as the Newspaper Publishers Association, its members are incapable of such an unpatriotic thought.

Today no one believes that our country’s success depends on an informed public and a free press. America’s success depends on its financial and military hegemony over the world. Any information inconsistent with the indispensable people’s god-given right to dominate the world must be suppressed and the messenger discredited and destroyed.

Now that the press has voluntarily shed its First Amendment rights, the government is working to redefine free speech as a privilege limited to the media, not a right of citizens. Thus, the insistence that WikiLeaks is not a media organization and Fox News (sic) turning in a citizen for exercising free speech. Washington’s assault on Assange and WikiLeaks is an assault on what remains of the US Constitution. When we cheer for WikiLeaks’ demise, we are cheering for our own.

You know, Megyn Kelly tries really hard to be a journalist, but she inevitably

Conservative?...What's next, Playboy...We hope so!

falls flat on her face.  Isn’t it so sad?

President Obama called the Philidelphia Eagles owner to praise him for trying to use green energy to power their stadium, and in the course of things, I guess, the President praised him for giving Michael Vick ‘a second chance’.

This is more of a chance to blast the President than it is to smear Michael Vick.  Given that what Vick did was disgusting and cruel, but should a celebrity having such a glorious chance come as a surprise?  Evidently, Kelly and any other avid Fox News viewer thinks that Vick should be castrated and hung out to dry.

Never mind the fact that Eagles fans love him, he is having a record year, and he will be going to the Pro Bowl.  And could we see a Super Bowl ring in the making?

Michael Vick did his time.  But, of course, in America, we don’t like to forget the mistakes of others.  The old saying ‘paid his debt to society’ holds no weight.  But, again, this was more of a smear campaign on the President than it is Mr. Vick.

Michael Vick, I wish you well.  Even if you did beat my Colts.

And people wonder why my tag line is…”The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.”

Al-Qaeda terror mastermind Anwar Al-Awlaki, the man who helped plot the aborted Christmas Day bombing, the Fort Hood shooting, the Times Square bombing attempt, and who also preached to the alleged September 11 hijackers, dined at the Pentagon just months after 9/11 documents obtained by Fox News show.

American-born cleric Awlaki’s role as a key figure in almost every recent terror plot targeting the United States and Canada, coupled with his visit to the Pentagon, only confirms our long stated position that Awlaki is a chief terrorist patsy-handler for the CIA – he is the federal government’s premier false flag agent.

“Documents exclusively obtained by Fox News, including an FBI interview conducted after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009, state that Awlaki was taken to the Pentagon as part of the military’s outreach to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks,” states the report.

Click here to read a portion of the documents.

Awlaki was vetted before he was invited to attend a luncheon at the Pentagon in the secretary of the Army’s Office of Government Counsel. His appearance at the meeting was deliberately engineered despite Awlaki’s ties to three of the alleged 9/11 hijackers – Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Hani Hanjour – who were identified as the suicide pilots that slammed Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

Following the Fort Hood shooting it was also revealed that shooter Major Nidal Malik Hasan had been in contact with Awlaki before the rampage. Awlaki preached to both Hasan and the 9/11 hijackers at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia in 2001.

Awlaki also met with Christmas Day underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and acted as “the middle-man between the young Nigerian and the bombmaker.” As we have thoroughly documented, the Delta Flight 253 incident was staged from start to finish. The US State Department allowed Abdulmutallab to board the plane, aided by a well-dressed Indian man, despite the fact that he was on a terror watch list and had no passport.

The Christmas Day incident was a boon for companies linked with the military-industrial complex, as it greased the skids for the global introduction of naked body scanners in airports.

Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad was also reported to have been directed by Awlaki before his failed attack on May 1st.

The Pentagon has offered no explanation of how a man, now on the CIA kills or capture list, ended up at a special lunch for Muslim outreach,” states the Fox News report.

The explanation is quite simple – Awlaki is the CIA’s chief patsy handler for planning and staging false flag terror attacks through the dupes that he radicalizes.

The US Special Operations Command’s Able Danger program identified the hijackers and their accomplices long before 9/11, and would undoubtedly have also picked up Awlaki.

As Webster Tarpley has documented, Awlaki is “an intelligence agency operative and patsy-minder” and “one of the premier terror impresarios of the age operating under Islamic fundamentalist cover” whose job it is to “motivate and encourage groups of mentally impaired and suggestible young dupes who were entrapped into “terrorist plots” by busy FBI and Canadian RCMP agents during recent years.”

Tarpley points to Awlaki’s role in the Toronto and Fort Dix, New Jersey, terror plots, which were both contrived by the feds, as proof of Awlaki’s usefulness to the authorities in radicalizing terrorist patsies.

Lawyers in a case relating to the much vaunted 2007 terror plot to attack Fort Dix and kill “as many soldiers as possible” concluded that FBI informants were the key figures behind the operation and that the accused, six foreign-born Muslims, were merely bungling patsies.

Similarly, the “Toronto 18″ terrorists turned out to be “a bunch of incompetent guys who were primarily misled by a delusional megalomaniac”. The explosive fertilizer material the terrorist cell apparently planned to use was in fact purchased by an informant working for the RCMP who had radicalized the group.

Given the fact that Awlaki is a double operative, claiming to be an Al-Qaeda leader yet in fact working for U.S. intelligence, it’s hardly surprising that he made an appearance at the Pentagon.

Awlaki has also appeared in video tapes purporting to be Al-Qaeda propaganda material released by the IntelCenter, which as we have documented is nothing more than a Pentagon front group that has been caught red-handed releasing fake Al-Qaeda videos to bolster support for the geopolitical agenda of the US government.

Confirmation that Awlaki met with Pentagon officials after having inspired the very 9/11 hijackers that are blamed for flying a commercial airliner into the Pentagon provides yet more startling evidence that the highest levels of Al-Qaeda are completely penetrated and run by the US military industrial complex, which via patsy handlers like Awlaki is staging false flag attacks to boost their own domestic and geopolitical agenda.

To be completely honest; I am surprised that Fox News reported on this.
