The media hate the truth, and they lie on behalf of Obama
By: Marie Jon'
“He who hates, disguises it with his lips, and lays up deceit within himself; when he speaks kindly, do not believe him, for there are seven abominations in his heart.” â€” Proverbs 26:24, 25
There is a helpless, sinister sense that seems to be hanging like a heavy weight over the country. One can compare the emotion to that of a death of a loved one â€” America.
Many astute individuals are beginning to understand that something very different from changes of the past is happening to their country. The Democratic National Committee has adopted an extreme, radical-left ideology. It no longer represents the party our parents remember. It would be more aptly renamed the Democratic Socialist Party.
What does a politically-left agenda mean to the average Joe and Jane? Well, unless you’ve been living in a cave: President Obama’s agenda is to increase big government and give us more entitlement programs that will never pan out. He is demanding redistribution of wealth, whether we like it or not. These initiatives will diminish individual liberties â€” although that, of course, is not being widely discussed.
Every working class individual will have more taxes taken out of their earnings, while a biased media purposefully keeps us ill-informed and even eager for this wonderful change, preparing us to embrace socialism. Since he took office, President Obama has been working hard to undermine our nation. He does not want America to succeed. Obama hates what he perceives our country to be, and he will not be content until he remakes our nation to his liking.
Take, for instance, our economy. It is now far worse than it was before President G. W. Bush left office. For almost seven years, we were living the good life. People had bucks in their pockets and jobs. And Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney kept our homeland safe from terrorism.
Obama has made us all less financially secure and less safe, yet both Bush and Cheney are continuously vilified by the media and the Democrat Party. Obama, meanwhile, gets a “free ride.” He has a long list of political friends and cohorts who have corrupt and questionable backgrounds, yet this is the man who was elected president and is now Commander-in-Chief of our troops.
Timothy Geithner is a tax cheat, yet he was given the job of Secretary of the Treasury. This should have never happened. With Geithner’s input, Obama continues to spend taxpayer (yet to be) earned money and cares little about the private entrepreneurial sector, which grows our economy. What happened to our free enterprise system? The government is taking over just about every aspect of our lives. Were you consulted?
Obama’s policies are all geared to bring down this country as we know it. None of his political, economical, or social engineering strategies make sense, because they’re not meant to. Some of us are taken aback and frightened when we observe the veiled and rationalized seizure of power, but the smooth-talking Chicago thug has at least half of America mesmerized.
Some Americans desire a check on Obama’s political overreaching. According to a recent poll conducted by McLaughlin and Associates, people are becoming skittish and worrisome.
Excerpts from the Associated Press, April 29, 2009: “Obama disowns deficit he helped shape,” by Calvin Woodward â€”
“WASHINGTON (AP) â€” ‘That wasn’t me,’ President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One.
“It actually was him â€” and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years â€” who shaped a budget so out of balance.
“And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.
“His assertion that his proposed budget ‘will cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term’ is an eyeball-roller among many economists, given the uncharted terrain of trillion-dollar deficits and economic calamity that the government is negotiating.
“A look at some of his claims Wednesday:
“OBAMA: ‘Number one, we inherited a $1.3 trillion deficit…. That wasn’t me. Number two, there is almost uniform consensus among economists that in the middle of the biggest crisis, financial crisis, since the Great Depression, we had to take extraordinary steps. So you’ve got a lot of Republican economists who agree that we had to do a stimulus package and we had to do something about the banks. Those are one-time charges, and they’re big, and they’ll make our deficits go up over the next two years.’ â€” in Missouri.
“THE FACTS: Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama’s last two years as Illinois senator. Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush’s final months â€” a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.
“The economy has worsened under Obama, though from forces surely in play before he became president, and he can credibly claim to have inherited a grim situation.
“OBAMA: ‘I think one basic principle that we know is that the more we do on the (disease) prevention side, the more we can obtain serious savings down the road. … If we’re making those investments, we will save huge amounts of money in the long term.’ â€” in Missouri.
“THE FACTS: It sounds believable that preventing illness should be cheaper than treating it, and indeed that’s the case with steps like preventing smoking and improving diets and exercise. But during the 2008 campaign, when Obama and other presidential candidates were touting a focus on preventive care, the New England Journal of Medicine cautioned that ‘sweeping statements about the cost-saving potential of prevention, however, are overreaching.’ It said that ‘although some preventive measures do save money, the vast majority reviewed in the health economics literature do not.’
“And a study released in December by the Congressional Budget Office found that increasing preventive care ‘could improve people’s health but would probably generate either modest reductions in the overall costs of health care or increases in such spending within a 10-year budgetary time frame.’
“OBAMA: ‘You could cut (Social Security) benefits. You could raise the tax on everybody so everybody’s payroll tax goes up a little bit. Or you can do what I think is probably the best solution, which is you can raise the cap on the payroll tax.’ â€” in Missouri.
“THE FACTS: Obama’s proposal would reduce the Social Security trust fund’s deficit by less than half, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. That means he would still have to cut benefits, raise the payroll tax rate, raise the retirement age or some combination to deal with the program’s long-term imbalance.” Full article
Propaganda arm of government
The president is a well-spoken liar, yet he gets a pass from journalists who should take their jobs seriously instead of being partisan. With freedom of the press ought to come integrity, veracity, and responsible reporting. With few exceptions, there has been very little in the media to tout lately.
“The freedom of the press is one of the great bulwarks of liberty, and can never be restrained but by despotic government.” â€” George Mason (in the Virginia Bill of Rights), 6/12/1776
What our Founding Fathers had in mind regarding freedom of the press was for the press to have reasonable latitude as a watchdog for the people. Unfortunately, the media have become the propaganda arm of government â€” selectively informing the public in order to promote a socialist agenda.
Many within the media covet positions in government and ultimately hope to attain such influence. Interestingly, many in government equally covet positions in the media, and ultimately hope to attain positions of influence there. The problem with this is that the media have become virtually inseparable from the corrupt government they are meant to monitor. The media’s job is to inform “We The People.” Instead, they have turned against their own country by becoming activists for the communist usurper who sits in the White House.
There was no way our forefathers could possibly have foreseen the amount of harm the media could generate today. TV, radio, and the World Wide Web have quite literally become the assault weapons of liberalism’s worldview. The American public is no longer being truthfully informed.
“The price of liberty…”
There will be a price to pay for our lack of attention. When all is said and done, the media may cost us everything, including our liberties and freedom. Way too many in the press are agenda-driven, crazed ideologues. A biased presentation is shown nightly on all the mainstream news networks. They taint and slant the political and social issues of the day.
“We The People” must make them stop. Let’s bring them down and force the issue by way of peaceful demonstrations and a boycott of their advertisers. It is about time we began a media blitz of our own. Through concerted action, we can coordinate rallies that end up at the doors of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and all their alphabetical affiliates.
There is a need for right-minded citizens to regain their confidence that activism can make a difference. Millions of us will be needed to force the media to deliver news that addresses issues important to our lives and our democratic republic.
May we become prayerful and solemn as we consider what The Almighty God might allow to occur in the USA. Under this presidency, we’ve become a nation gone wrong. The Lord judges us as a nation, not only as individuals. Will He withhold His providential care, protection, and intervention from us?
Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!” â€” Psalm 43:1
