Propa-organists

Well, the ankle biters are at it again. Glenn Beck today telling his listeners that this vermin will be so sorry he left Fox. Beck will be announcing next week the formation of his own News Operation. I. Cannot. Wait. I’m signing on for GBTV online and will probably not turn on my TV anymore, except to compare and contrast with what FOX is NOT telling us. (I have it on background that Beck is also going to announce a Cable TV Channel in conjunction with the online product. I can’t verify that. We’ll have to wait and see.)

Here’s what Obama’s boss George Soros’ house organ squirted out to its email list:

Dear Andrea,

Glenn Beck was just forced off of Fox News, but his hate-filled rhetoric continues to rear its ugly head on the radio.

With cruel disregard for the innocent victims of the Norway shooting, Beck said the youth camp that was attacked “sounds a little like the Hitler Youth.” And if that baseless comparison wasn’t disturbing enough once, he went on to make it a second time. It’s shameful and disgusting. But most of all, it’s intolerable.

Beck may not be on TV any more, but Americans are still not safe from his brand of hate-filled right-wing propaganda. He’s still leveling vicious attacks on innocent victims, and sowing seeds of bigotry and hate in our country with his despicable and disgusting rants. His advertisers on Fox News didn’t want to be associated with him, and he left Fox amid declining ad revenue, social relevance, and television ratings. But we need to make sure that there is accountability for the lies and reckless vitriol that Beck poisons our radio airwaves with, too.

Since the beginning of the year, eight radio stations have made the prudent business decision to drop Glenn Beck’s show from their lineup. This is good, but we’ve got more work to do.

Call on Glenn Beck’s radio affiliates to hold him accountable.

We’ll take your signatures to station managers at key stations and let them know how deep the American outrage is over Beck’s statements.

In pathetically typical fashion, Beck didn’t turn around and offer an apology or clarification–or even address his comments– on his next show. Instead, he said that if we can’t use Hitler analogies in “logical conversation” then “we are going to be a society of gas chambers.”

If Glenn Beck doesn’t even have the compassion to respectfully discuss the deaths of teenagers at a youth camp, he’s not going to listen to our pleas for reason or commonsense decency.
So, we’ll hit him where it hurts — his advertising dollars. Tell advertisers to drop Glenn Beck.

Hold Glenn Beck accountable. Tell the radio stations Beck’s brand of vitriol is not acceptable.

Getting Glenn Beck off television and relegating him to radio was a critical first step. But it’s clearly not enough. We’ve got to keep pushing to make sure this mean-spirited venom doesn’t spread any further.

Thanks for all you do,

Matt Butler
President and CEO
Media Matters for America

Special Note from NoisyRoom: Matt – bud – may we just invite you to go know yourself in the biblical sense. Really. We mean it.

We join The Radio Patriot, New Zeal, Gulag Bound and countless others who feel the way Andrea does. We. Cannot. Wait. We are already subscribers to Beck and have been for a very long time and will always subscribe. Screw the TV and every media outlet out there. Your death knell is at hand and may Beck’s endeavor hasten it. Knock, knock on wood… It’s like thunder, it’s like lightening…

Jim DeMint: DeMint’s Debt Limit Message to South Carolina

By: Maggie
Maggie’s Notebook

Senator Jim DeMint issued the following statement to the Charleston Tea Party yesterday.

Jim DeMint

Fellow Conservatives:

I have troubling news. I’m very careful about criticizing my party’s leaders, but what is happening in Washington right now cannot be ignored. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has abandoned the Cut-Cap-Balance Act and is now pushing a new plan that is nearly identical to the one proposed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

The Boehner-Reid plan gives the President an immediate increase in the debt limit and only promises to cut spending in the future. It violates all three principles of the Cut-Cap-Balance Pledge because it does not substantially cut current spending, it does not truly cap future spending, and it does not require the passage of a strong Balanced Budget Amendment before raising the debt limit.

In short, I oppose the Boehner-Reid plan because it won’t balance the budget and stop the debt that is destroying our country.

The Boehner-Reid Plan

You will hear many claims about this plan over the next few days as it is pushed through the House and Senate. Some of these claims will be true, but many will be false. Here are the facts. The Boehner-Reid plan:

  • Provides two increases in the debt limit — $900 billion and $1.6 trillion — totaling $2.5 trillion. It gives the President an immediate $900 billion increase given that Congress does not vote to disapprove it. It gives the President another $1.6 trillion increase next year if a bill written by a new Super Committee passes both houses and becomes law.
  • Reduces spending by only $1.2 trillion over the next ten years. This amount won’t even come close to balancing the budget, as the debt is expected to grow by as much as $10 trillion over the next decade. The plan also reduces spending by only $6 billion in 2012. Considering that our government currently spends $10 billion a day, $6 billion is far too little to cut over the first year of the plan.
  • Calls for a vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment but does not require its passage. Without passage of a strong Balanced Budget Amendment, Congress will never break its addiction to spending.
  • Makes it virtually impossible to stop the debt limit from going up. The debt ceiling increases can only be stopped if Congress passes a resolution of disapproval and then votes to override the President’s veto with two-thirds support in the House and Senate.
  • Creates a new, 12-member Super Committee to write another “grand bargain” to reduce the deficit by at least $1.6 trillion. It does not, however, prohibit the Super Committee from writing a bill to raise taxes and destroy jobs. The bill can then be fast-tracked through the House and Senate with no amendments.

Why It Should Be Rejected

After reviewing the details of Boehner-Reid plan, I cannot support it. It won’t balance the budget and stop the debt. Even if the cuts called for in the plan were real, the debt will still increase by $7 trillion over the next ten years.

  • It won’t protect our AAA bond rating. According to
    financial reports, this plan will not reduce long-term spending by enough to
    prevent a downgrade. If we lose our AAA rating, it will create higher interest
    rates and cause our debt to grow even faster.
  • It will likely result in higher taxes that will destroy
    even more jobs. The unemployment rate is over 9 percent. We cannot afford to
    lose more jobs when so many Americans are struggling to find work.

There are some in my party who think I should ignore the flaws of the Boehner-Reid plan, bite my tongue, and support my party’s leaders. If I thought this were a political game, that might make sense. But the future of our country is at stake, I don’t believe this plan will save it, and I have a moral obligation to say so.

The Way Forward

Fortunately, there is a much better solution.

The Cut-Cap-Balance Act would balance the budget, stop the debt, and protect our AAA bond rating. This legislation passed the House with bipartisan support but was blocked by Democrats in the Senate.

The votes in the Senate for Cut-Cap-Balance are there if Republicans stand firm. 23 Democrats in the Senate have expressed support for the Balanced Budget Amendment at some point in their careers. They’re blocking it now because they believe Republicans will blink and agree to something much less.

And that’s exactly what will happen if the Boehner-Reid plan is passed. It gives the big spenders in Washington everything they wanted — an increase in the debt limit, phony spending cuts, and a mechanism to pass tax increases.

Please call your senators today and urge them to oppose the Boehner-Reid plan and to demand passage of the Cut, Cap, Balance Act.

Respectfully,

Jim DeMint

NoisyRoom Note: I would just like to ask if Jim DeMint is the only politician left with a spine and common sense? I totally agree with him. For the life of me, I cannot understand why Tea Party members of the House are falling in line behind Boehner. What happened to you? Suck it up! This crap of doing what is best for the collective and compromising is certain death for America. Have you lost your minds AND your spines? Or were you made an offer you can’t refuse?

Looks like true Scots and Americans are in short supply in those halls these days. But I’m sure each of them will be rich in land and title while Americans are ruled in tyranny and our lands are given to the aristocracy. Better to die free than live as slaves.

——————–

Wallace: Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace.

Young Soldier: William Wallace is 7 feet tall.

Wallace: Yes, I’ve heard. Kills men by the hundreds, and if he were here he’d consume the English with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse. I AM William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What would you do without freedom? Will you fight?

Veteran Soldier: Fight? Against that? No, we will run; and we will live.

Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you’ll live — at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!!!

Wallace and Soldiers: Alba gu bra! (Scotland forever!)
