Old Media shows its Communist Stripes

The Old Media are breathless again. They are reporting with great fervor and feigned outrage at another story of utmost importance. Setting aside their lust for US military body count statistics and Cindy Sheehan's now-lunatic rnatings, the OM has a new target.

Televangelist Pat Roberts has suggested that the US assassinate Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.


According to Yahoo News:
...Robertson said killing Chavez would be cheaper than starting a war to oust him. Getting rid of Chavez would stop Venezuela from becoming a "launching pad for communist influence and Muslim extremism," Robertson said.

"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said. "We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator."

Obviously, it is not US policy to assassinate world leaders. And there are many other ways to remove Chavez from the presidency - a position he obtained with massive fraud, but ultimately blessed by Jimmy Carter, the former president who hasn't met a terrorist he didn't love.

The real story is how the media is in full spin mode - and they have two purposes: damage conservatives by going after a self-appointed leader and rushing to the aid of another communist dictator.

Get out the fainting couch. They never report the rantings of the left - especially when they call for the assassination of president Bush. When a conservative with big name recognition notes that assassinating a dictator is an option, they freak out.

They fawn all over dictators any chance they get. They have always loved Castro. They blame the US military for picking on Saddam. They blast Bush for bullying Jong-Il.

Is there a dictator that they don't love?

Perhaps - but the problem lies in their definition. "Dictators" - at least in their minds - have a Christian faith. They support capitalism, liberty, and freedom. They use the military as a defense mechanism. They trust the people to do the right things. They believe in rugged individualism.

The OM has such a twisted view of the world. And because of that, they hated Regan. And, my, how they hate Bush now.

Young Conservatives Strike Back



The Young Conservatives of Pennsylvania have started a new campaign to keep the pay grab on the front burner. The web site, InformedPA.com, calls residents to action by supporting billboards and radio spots. Several clever mock-ups show what can be purchased for $500.

YCOP founder, Chris Lilik, has a great write-up on his blog, GrassrootsPA.com.

In YCOP style, the boards target any politician - regardless of party - that voted for the pay raise.

Please consider supporting InformedPA. Keep the politician's feet to the fire. Purchase a board for your area and let your state representative and/or senator that the revolution starts now!

Better yet, consider running for office...and help throw the bums out!

The disgusting actions of Cindy Sheehan

Yes, she lost her son Casey in Iraq...

But, this lady has a political agenda. Note the differences in her versions of her meeting with President Bush as noted by Brit Hume:
...just after meeting Mr. Bush last year, she told the paper, "I now know [the president is] sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis. I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith."

Last weekend she said, "He acted like it was a party. He came in very jovial— like we should be happy that...our son died for [the president's] misguided policies."

Notice the buzz words that she has learned in her year of reflection. "Misguided policies" is a term straight out of focus groups and liberal extremist talking points.

Why would Bush want to meet with her again? If he does, you know that she's going to come out of the meeting with a fabricated story. No one else on the planet has claimed that Bush was "jovial" in his approach to the loss of troops.

Look who is siding with her in her emcampment - facists, communists, the extremist anti-war left. Fenton Communications (who works for MoveOn and other Soros groups) is feeding her talking points. Sheehan writes for Michael Moore. Do you have any doubt where she stands?

Look who is against her. Her own family has released a statement backing the troops and Bush. They are distancing themselves as far as possible:

The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.

Sincerely,
Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.


They are proud of Casey and they should be. He joined the military and was proud to serve. His mother wanted to take him to Canada, but he said that it was his duty to go.



Sheehan met Bush once. Just like all of the other parents. Why does she deserve another meeting, when all she does is salivate over the chance to trash him?

When a Vacation is not a Vacation

Pundits and politicians are slobbering all over themselves as they breathlessly report on President Bush's "record-long" vacation. They can't believe that he takes the job so lightly that he would stay away for so long.

First of all, do you really think Pelosi or Kennedy are sitting in the capitol rotunda at this hour because the work of the American people must be done?

Secondly, do you really think that Bush is sitting on the couch with the remote all day? His staff goes with him to Crawford. He has daily meetings. He hosts other world leaders. He acts on intelligence and directs the military.

The big difference? Bush is in a different location. It's no secret that the primped and pampered press corps hates Crawford. There are no elitist functions. No trendy hotspots to see and be seen. They hate Texas. It's so...conservative.

The pundits also hate the idea of Americans seeing video of Bush clearing brush, chopping wood, and simply looking rugged. They know men admire a guy who gets his hands dirty. They know women swoon for a hard-workin' man.

They hate that Bush gets things done. Whether on the ranch or in Iraq, Bush simply gets things done.
