There’s No Truth In The News And No News In The Truth

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

The Americans on FX

As Trevor Loudon and I have discussed numerous times, the Cold War never went away… it merely shifted. Communists never went away either – they are plentiful and infiltrated throughout our government and institutions. With the election of an avowed Marxist, they are emboldened and have whet their appetite for the downfall of a once great nation and the rise of a monolithic fascist regime, desired in their eyes and hearts, hopefully worldwide.

The Progressive’s most potent tool is propaganda, which the media and Hollywood (who are the toadies of Obama and the Leftists) wield masterfully as a powerful weapon with which to continuously bludgeon America, trying to force her into submission.

Enter a new television series premiering on FX on Jan. 30th – The Americans.

From: Defeat Communism

The series takes place in the early 1980s, where two KGB agents pose as an American married couple embedded in Washington DC. Their union was arranged in the old country, but glorified in America as our media works arduously at making you feel for these Russkies. Ah, young Commie spy love! Mix in some nationalism, anti-Americanism and violence and you have a new series that will blow America away (they wish).

And as Glenn Beck has predicted many times, the mask is totally coming off. The producers are not shy in stating who Americans should be rooting for:

“It might be a little different to believe and get used to, but we want you to root for the KGB,” said EP Joel Fields. “They’re going to try to get the Soviets to win the Cold War.”

History knows they’re fighting a losing battle, but the creative team behind the high-profile launch expressed a confidence that more than enough time has passed for American audiences to not hold a grudge.

“If you tried to tell a story like this about al-Qaeda now, it would be impossible; no one would want to hear it,” Fields continued. “I feel even the same could have been said up to 10 years after the cold war ended.”

Get that? Americans should now cheer for the Commies, because hey… we’re all Communists now. And the closing pitch? Well, take a gander:

As a closing pitch to root for the bad guy protagonists, Weisberg said he wanted viewers to take a hard look at both sides of the Cold War.

“These were these really competing value systems,” he said. “And there’s no question that repressive socialism failed, but unbridled consumption hasn’t exactly led to great satisfaction — and one problem is how do we express that dramatically.”

Well, rock me Putin! We should all hail Stalin and just ditch that pesky Constitution. Not. This is one Conservative Constitutionalist who will watch at least the first couple of episodes to record them in KeyWiki. In fact, they’ll get their very own page – how’s that for infamous?

But, it’s not just our television shows that are replete with Marxist propaganda or our movies, produced by Progressives. Nor is it just Marxist actors and actresses or music performers. We are assailed by it these days everywhere we turn. It’s the ultimate in peer pressure – go Commie! Be cool!

Simply look at the President’s upcoming inauguration tomorrow (which I will NOT be watching). Above and below, you can see posters that are being hawked in DC depicting Obama as the second coming. It is the ultimate blasphemy. Running only a close second to Obama using children as human shields when railing on cable against the Second Amendment.

A stunning Caesar profile, don’t you think?

The Left would have us worship at the bloody feet of Obama – not happening. And the propaganda is insidious – watch your favorite shows very closely, you will see where it has been woven into the plots and commercials. Our media now goes where dictators in the past never had the means to go and boldly, I might add.

Then there is the other face of this chaotic coin. What you don’t hear. While Americans rightfully took to the streets in protest of Obama’s anti-gun tactics, he was pushing a full-frontal anti-Netanyahu PR campaign in Israel.

From Galganov.com:

Israel goes to the polls on Tuesday January 22, 2013, in what is surely Israel’s MOST important election ever.

AND OBAMA IS IN THE THICK OF IT.

Not only is Obama telling the Israeli people through his LEFTIST media sycophants in Israel and the USA, that he DOESN’T want Netanyahu reelected, he is THREATENING the Israeli people with dire predictions of serious consequences for the future of Israel if they don’t heed his words.

I was reading Y-NET News Saturday morning (January 19, 2013), which is a popular English language VERY LEFTIST Israeli News Web Site, where they had published an editorial CASTIGATING Prime Minister Netanyahu for NOT listening to Obama.

Obama will never be satisfied until both America and Israel are on their knees awaiting gutting by our enemies. I hope Netanyahu gets reelected and tells Obama to get his Marxist snout out of Israel’s business and go straight to hell.

So, always look at what Obama is doing with one hand while he is shredding the Constitution with the other. He is not content with the level of propaganda currently, so he is going turbo by creating a mass organization promoting – well, him:

President Obama will remake his presidential campaign into a massive new movement devoted to supporting his agenda, an unprecedented move that creates a brand new political organization devoted not to a Party, not to an idea – but to one charismatic leader.

The group, to be called Organizing for Action, opens for business Sunday, the day Obama is officially inaugurated.

If this type of organization has existed before in American politics on any similar scale, I’m not aware of it.

There are excellent reasons why we haven’t had mass groups devoted to powerful leaders in this country. Our whole system of government is designed to provide checks to protect against the accretion of too much power, to forestall mob rule. A mass organization that does the bidding of a single individual who also happens to be the president of the United States undermines such intentions.

And — wait for it — it is ‘non-profit.’ What a horrific joke.

Propaganda for the masses in fascist moves that would make Hitler blush. You can no longer trust the news or the media, with few exceptions.

One of the running jokes throughout most of the Soviet dominion over Russia was this assessment of the two newspapers by the non-Communist citizenry: “There is no Pravda in Izvestia and there is no Izvestia in Pravda” or in English: “There is no truth in News and there is no news in Truth.” But this was said carefully and to people who would not report you to the Central Committee. Which, I hear, Barack Obama is forming as I write this.

As the names of the main Communist newspaper and the main Soviet newspaper, Pravda and Izvestia, meant “the truth” and “the news” respectively, a popular Russian saying was “V Pravde net Izvestiy, v Izvestiyakh net Pravdy” (In the Truth there is no news, and in the News there is no truth).

Signs of our times.

By: Nelson Abdullah
Conscience of a Conservative

Seems like many people outside of the mainstream liberal news media are already aware that the Democratic Party basically stole the last elections. The amazing thing is that the local and state governments have tacitly accepted the election results without so much as a raised eyebrow. When a county voter turnout results in more ballots cast than there are registered voters living in that county you would think someone in charge or anyone in the news media would say something. When the Republican Party tries in vain to pass common sense laws requiring voters to provide identification, the Democrats jump in and raise claims the GOP was trying to suppress the minority voters. Of course, without the burden of showing identification anyone can walk in to a polling place and give the name of someone who died and vote in their place. When the Republicans tried to make it easier for our military personnel overseas to obtain absentee ballots, the Democrats rallied in courts to stop it. Consequently, the votes cast by our fighting men and women have declined drastically in the last four years.

Rachel Alexander, the editor of the Intellectual Conservative, wrote a great piece about the extent of voter fraud on Townhall that demands some kind of response. Two paragraphs from her article describe most of the problem.

Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud

So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns? The most realistic explanation is voter fraud in a few swing states. According to the Columbus Dispatch, one out of every five registered voters in Ohio is ineligible to vote. In at least two counties in Ohio, the number of registered voters exceeded the number of eligible adults who are of voting age. In northwestern Ohio’s Wood County, there are 109 registered voters for every 100 people eligible to vote. An additional 31 of Ohio’s 88 counties have voter registration rates over 90%, which most voting experts regard as suspicious. Obama miraculously won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland, and received over 99% of the vote where GOP inspectors were illegally removed.

The inflated numbers can’t just reflect voters who have moved, because the average voting registration level nationwide is only 70%. The vast majority of voters over the 70% level are not voting because they want to, they are voting because someone is getting them to cast a vote, one way or another. Those 31 counties are most likely the largest counties in Ohio, representing a majority of Ohio voters. This means the number of votes cast above the 70% typical voter registration level easily tops 100,000, the margin Obama won Ohio by.

So why has the Republican National Committee been so silent on this obvious fraud? Why have they not sent lawyers into the courts to challenge the obvious transgressions of the Democratic Party? This is why. Read the case story on Judicial Review.

Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee

Case No. 09-4615 (C.A. 3, Mar. 8, 2012)

In 1982, the Republican National Committee (?RNC?) and the Democratic National Committee (?DNC?) entered into a consent decree (the ?Decree? or ?Consent Decree?), which is national in scope, limiting the RNC?s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court?s approval in advance. The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNC?s Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Court?s judgment.

I. BACKGROUND

A. 1981 Lawsuit and Consent Decree

During the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the DNC, the New Jersey Democratic State Committee (?DSC?), Virginia L. Peggins, and Lynette Monroe brought an action against the RNC, the New Jersey Republican State Committee (?RSC?), John A. Kelly, Ronald Kaufman, and Alex Hurtado, alleging that the RNC and RSC targeted minority voters in an effort to intimidate them in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (?VRA?), 42 U.S.C. §§ 1971, 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The RNC allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and, then, including individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls. The RNC also allegedly enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting with ?National Ballot Security Task Force? armbands. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.

To settle the lawsuit, the RNC and RSC entered into the Consent Decree at issue here. The RNC and RSC agreed that they would:

[I]n the future, in all states and territories of the United States:

(a) comply with all applicable state and federal laws protecting the rights of duly qualified citizens to vote for the candidate(s) of their choice;

(b) in the event that they produce or place any signs which are part of ballot security activities, cause said signs to disclose that they are authorized or sponsored by the party committees and any other committees participating with the party committees;

(c) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their agents or employees to remove or deface any lawfully printed and placed campaign materials or signs;

(d) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their employees to campaign within restricted polling areas or to interrogate prospective voters as to their qualifications to vote prior to their entry to a polling place;

(e) refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose;

(f) refrain from having private personnel deputized as law enforcement personnel in connection with ballot security activities.

Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee

Cheer up, things will only get a little worse before they start getting better. The consent decree expires in 2017, right after the next presidential election. Before that happens, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution may be repealed. The Twenty-second Amendment of the United States Constitution sets a term limit for election to the office of President of the United States. Congress passed the amendment on March 21, 1947. It was ratified by the requisite number of states on February 27, 1951. The Democrats have already introduced new bills for its repeal.

And guess who will likely be on the ballot in November of 2016? Yes, our wannabe president-for-life, Barack Hussein Obama, one-time Muslim, communist mentored, friend of domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, champion of the Muslim Brotherhood and suspected messiah of the uneducated minority voters. Self anointed King of America.

The Republican National Committee has not been completely silent on this issue. They tried in 2008 to appeal this agreement but the courts overruled them and the U. S. Supreme Court just recently refused to hear the case.

RNC ‘Ballot Security’ Restrictions Continue As Supreme Court Refuses To Lift Consent Decree

Posted: 01/14/2013 6:40 pm EST | Updated: 01/14/2013 6:47 pm EST
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday declined to lift 30-year-old restrictions on the Republican National Committee’s “ballot security” programs that the organization said were necessary to combat voter fraud.

The court decided not to take up the RNC’s appeal without commenting on the case. The consent decree came about after the Democratic National Committee sued the RNC for enlisting off-duty sheriffs and police officers to patrol polling places in minority precincts in New Jersey during a 1981 gubernatorial election. In 1982, the RNC agreed not to carry out some programs designed to combat voter fraud and to have other reviewed by a federal court.

So while Americans are in a hot lather over our wannabe president-for-life making his first attempt to ban the ownership of guns, as all good dictators have done before him, we are all now up to our armpits fighting the alligators in the dismal Democratic swamp called Socialism. So a few more words comparing guns to socialized medicine are in order. These are, after all, the signs of our times.

In 2011, according to the FBI national crime statistics,
323 people were killed by semi-automatic assault rifles.
496 people were killed with hammers.
650 people were killed with knives.
12,000 people were killed by drunk drivers.
195,000 people died as the result of medical malpractice.
You are 600 times more likely to die by using your Obamacare than by a semi-automatic rifle.

Why is it that none of the mentally disturbed and evil men, who steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in school, has ever been identified as a conservative Republican NRA member?
Ft Hood~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim
Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals
Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat
Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal
Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians,
Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.”
INTERESTING, isn’t it?

As Rod Serling, creator of the television series The Twilight Zone might say,

You are on the road to Oblivion, there is a sign post up ahead, it says turn Left to vote Democrat.

My name is Nelson Abdullah and I am Oldironsides. I never vote for Democrats.

Election Countdown

Arlene from Israel

Ron Nachman was a founder of the city of Ariel in 1978, when a group of dedicated pioneers, with the blessing of the government, set up the first tents. A member of Likud, he later gave up a career in the Knesset to become Ariel’s first mayor, and held that title until last week, when he passed away after a long battle with cancer. His funeral was today.

Credit: AP:/Moti Milrod

Nachman’s dedication to developing the land of Samaria — and to the city of Ariel — was well known in Israel. He is being mourned by many. The Yesha Council today saluted him as: “a Zionist settlement pioneer in his body and soul and an unstoppable builder of the Land of Israel.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Well, two more days until Israel’s election. Wish I had something really intelligent to say by way of analysis. But unfortunately, this campaign has not lent itself to this, as it has focused as much on personalities as on the genuine issues of the day.

And, unfortunately, while I am able to say that there is little to report regarding the election, the media, struggling with that same paucity of solid material, resorts to providing nonsense information in place of news. Tzipi Livni (head of the party named after her) had an argument with Naftali Bennett (Habayit Hayehudi) when they found themselves riding on the same elevator. Gasp! What a revelation.

~~~~~~~~~~

The betting remains that Binyamin Netanyahu will form the next coalition, but nothing is a certainty. Besides which, there is still the major question of which factions will be in that coalition.

Israeli law forbids election polls in the days immediately leading up to the election. So, we’ve seen the last of those polls — although there have been a huge number, with almost daily ones in the last weeks. From one to the other there have been some notable differences, but by and large Likud-Beitenu (the merged Likud and Yisrael Beitenu list) is expected to be the largest winner, by far — although the current predictions of between 32 and 37 mandates are all less than what had been anticipated when they merged their lists. And the “right wing and religious” parties are expected to form a majority of the newly elected Knesset. Habayit Hayehudi — an “up and coming” party — is predicted to have some 14 mandates.

Yesh Atid is also making a quite respectable showing for a new party.

Part of the problem in predicting what will happen is the very large number of “undecideds” that remain this late in the game. If a significant number of those who haven’t decided yet which party to vote for all vote in one direction, it could throw all predications off.

~~~~~~~~~~

Let me re-cap once again with regard to what we’ll be seeing. After the election results are in, President Peres will meet with heads of each party and ask whom they recommend to head the next government, i.e., form the coalition. As party heads provide their answers, the number of mandates (seats) that they represent is noted. Ultimately, Peres will select the person with enough factions saying they support him/her so that it is assumed s/he will be able to form a coalition — i.e., have more than 60 seats in the 120 person Knesset. (This presumption is not always accurate — last time, Livni, who then headed Kadima, was asked first and failed to form a coalition.)

Three major left-center parties — Tzipi Livni, Labor (headed by Shelley Yachimovich) and Yesh Atid (headed by Yair Lapid) — had said they were going to form a coalition after the election, and agree to all tell Peres that they wanted someone else (whom they had in mind has never been quite clear), These three parties would not, even with the most optimistic of election results for them, constitute a count of more than 60 mandates. They would likely bring in other parties such as Meretz and Kadima (which scarcely exists), and, still lacking sufficient mandates, lure a heredi party such as Shas into their camp — a party that would agree via a prior arrangement not to recommend Netanyahu.

This is all speculative theory. First, the three left-center heads do not get along. It’s not just Livni and Bennett in the elevator who have had harsh words for each other. They have harsh words for each other when they’re not in an elevator. And second, for this to happen Shas would have to be more attracted to this group, and what they offered in return for coalition support, as compared what Netanyahu would offer.

So…we can assume it will likely be Netanyahu.

I am going to go out on a limb here and make my own prediction as to what the new coalition will look like (and yes, I’ll eat my words if I’m wrong):

Netanyahu and his Likud-Beitenu list heading things up, with Habayit Hayehudi, Shas, likely United Torah Judaism, and, from the left, Yesh Atid. This would bring the coalition well over the number required.

Too often during this campaign Likud-Beitenu has focused on attacks against Habayit Hayehudi, its natural ally in many respects, rather than the left-center. It has not been pretty. It’s because, as I’ve written before, Bennett, who is greatly popular, threatens Netanyahu, and there is the feeling that Likud-Beitenu has gone down in the polls as Habayit Hayehudi gains. But in the end (is this wishful thinking?), it’s hard to imagine Netanyahu won’t include this faction, which IS its natural ally in many respects.

Yachimovich says she will not join with Netanyahu, and, not only is Livni also saying this (although she might change her mind at any moment), it is well known that Netanyahu is not inordinately fond of her. At the same time, Lapid is dropping hints that he might join a Netanyahu coalition. And so, of the three left-center, it is Yesh Atid I would expect to join.

Could Netanyahu still bring in Livni as well? Yea… Especially if he wants something resembling a unity government in the event that he acts against Iran. The trick would be to get “two state solution” Livni in the same government as Bennett (see more below on this).

~~~~~~~~~~

With regard to bringing in coalition factions with diverse positions: One of the stumbling blocks in forming a coalition is that the haredi parties want military exemptions for those studying in yeshivas, while the left-center, including Lapid, is pumping for universal draft. The negotiations for establishing a coalition of factions with diverse positions require considerable political skill — not to say compromise on the part of the various players in order to be in the governing coalition.

~~~~~~~~~~

One of the issues that has been raised in various contexts during the election is that of women’s rights; especially has this been the case since many of the undecided voters are reported to be women.

There are countless social issues, with all parties giving at least lip service to them — improved education, reducing poverty in the nation, etc.

A major dividing line between parties has to do with “negotiations for a two-state solution.” We’ve got Meretz at the far left, calling for negotiations according to the “Saudi Peace Plan,” which is a recipe for Israel’s destruction. And at the other end of the spectrum there is Otzma leYisrael (Strength to Israel, with Arieh Eldad), which says that Jordan is the Palestinian state.

It is on this issue that Likud-Beitenu and Habayit Hayehudi diverge. Naftali Bennett has come out against a Palestinian Arab state and calls for annexation of Area C. PM Netanyahu says he will govern on the basis of his Bar Ilan proposal for a demilitarized Palestinian Arab state.

I still believe that this is political posturing — he knows that there can be no negotiations now (he has said so) and that his parameters will not be acceptable to the Palestinian Arabs, who demand nothing less than everything — refugee return, Jerusalem, etc. etc.

Netanyahu is very different from Livni, for example, who clambers passionately for that Palestinian Arab state, which will make the world happy with us (she thinks). He says he’ll keep building in Jerusalem and the major blocs no matter what the world says.

And yet his position diverges from Bennett’s. Bennett, however, would never refuse to join the coalition because of this; on the contrary, he hopes to strengthen Netanyahu’s back.

~~~~~~~~~~

There are 34 parties running in the election. A good number of them will not make it past the 2% cut off for seats in the Knesset and will disappear from sight.

Here in Israel you don’t have to register to vote. Every citizen receives a slip in the mail entitling him or her to vote at a designated place. Soldiers, who can vote at any polling place, have begun voting.

~~~~~~~~~~

Before I leave this subject, I cannot resist this question: Other than in the current situation, has anyone ever heard of someone starting a party and naming it after herself? Tells us a whole lot.

~~~~~~~~~~

Now here’s a position from PM Netanyahu that is worth repeating. He has met with a group of Senators visiting in Jerusalem: John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.).

And he told them:

“Building in Jerusalem is not the world’s problem; a nuclear Iran is the world’s problem. The problem is not building in Ariel and it is not building in Jerusalem. The problem in the Middle East is Iran’s attempt to build nuclear weapons, and the chemical weapons in Syria and the Islamic extremism that is spreading in Africa and threatening to inundate the entire region.

“History will not forgive those who allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons. This was, and remains, the main mission facing not only myself and Israel, but the entire world.” (Emphasis added)

http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_article.php?id=7110

I do not believe this is electioneering. I am convinced that he believes this, and that this was a message for the American government.

Can he believe this and not structure a coalition that will permit him to deal with the problems most effectively?
