"PolitiFiction"

The liberal media is pulling out all stops to save the failing Obama campaign. Alleged fact checkers are labeling Republican truths lies and Obama lies as truth. 

The dinosaur media is on it's way out but will do as much damage to the nation as it can before it finally goes extinct.

I hope that the RNC has a moment of silence for Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and all the other people who died as a result of the actions of the Obama regime.

Chris Matthews makes a very good living accusing other white people of being racist. It’s a strange occupation, but as much as it pains me to admit, Chris Matthews is neither crazy nor stupid. He is wrong a lot. He is cloying and irritating. He is certainly tedious. But he is not crazy or stupid, so he cannot be entirely dismissed.

Matthews suffers from an idealized version of history in which rebellious liberals spoke truth to power and ended the Vietnam War. These same heroic souls marched with Martin Luther King. They locked arms and stared down billy clubs and riot police across the South in non-violent unity until their example taught the nation how to love. Matthews’ liberals risked their lives to close the book on segregation. They set American women free from the patriarchal shackles of the homestead. They organized against greedy corporations until they paid union workers a living wage. With open hearts and generous spirits, Matthews’ liberals have been righting wrongs for 50 years, and, by God, they’re not done yet.

To be clear, I’m not setting up a straw man. Matthews and his boomer ilk believe these things in their heart of hearts. They must. How else could they screechingly accuse the rest of us of racism, greed and selfishness with such conviction? To be an American liberal today, one begins by patting himself on the back for all of the good thoughts he has for mankind. It doesn’t matter that Joe Biden and Barack Obama give nothing to charity (or that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan give a great deal). Joe and Barack care more.

Mythology is central and precious to the progressive left. Liberals have to believe that they are generous and high-minded and thoroughly good for two simple reasons. First, because socialism has a long and uninterrupted history of failure. From the birth of Marx to Hitler’s Germany to Stalin’s Russia, all the way to today’s rioting Greeks and the soon-to-be crumbling socialized democracies of Western Europe, the masterminds of big central government always seem to manage their countries into bloody ruins.

The second reason liberals need to believe they are better than the rest of us is to justify their seizures. Chris Matthews isn’t passing a hat around to raise money for welfare moms. He wants the government to seize the necessary funds. Liberals aren’t asking. They want to take. To justify the taking, they need to believe that they’re very good, that their cause is virtuous, and that anyone who doesn’t agree is, by definition, evil.

Liberal boomers like Chris Matthews are an odd bunch. They were kids during the sixties and most were spectators to the civil rights movement. Few were called to serve their country in Vietnam. Even fewer answered the call. Still, they like to dress themselves in the scars of wounds suffered by others. They have a reflexive need to apologize for America. Some insist that they’re patriotic, but they’re always against our wars, our foreign policy. They ridicule our Founding Fathers. They’re embarrassed of our history and culture.

In his seminal masterpiece “Orthodoxy,” G.K. Chesterton wrote that “Tradition is the democracy of the dead.” So how do the American dead vote? Our foremost tradition is independence. Faith and charity are close runners-up. Throughout our history, Americans have taken care of themselves and their neighbors, while placing their faith in God. In short, America is the least hospitable environment imaginable for modern liberals like Chris Matthews, who want the government to take care of everything and everyone.

I’ve always been mystified by liberals who harp on racism and choose to see oppression everywhere. But maybe it isn’t such a mystery. In order to achieve their political ends, liberals need to demonize their opponents and denigrate our traditions. That’s an unpleasant way to live. No wonder Chris Matthews is so cranky.

Killing black babies in mass

http://dailycaller.com/?p=3328...

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) employee-turned-whistle-blower Anita Moncrief told The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that the current fight over Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin’s comments about “legitimate rape” is an example of false outrage that harms women.

“There’s a double standard that exists for Democrats and other parties,” she said. “It’s a Saul Alinsky tactic. … So every time there’s an instance where something happens, they are going to make us live up to our own rule book — which means, ‘OK, you’ve got to step down, you’ve gotta resign, you’ve gotta do this and that.’”

“But since the Democrats don’t consider that to be part of their rulebook there’s no reason for them to think anything of [the late Sen. Ted] Kennedy being a murderer, or Bill Clinton being accused of rape and other stuff. To them it doesn’t matter because they don’t have any moral authority, they don’t have any moral high ground, they never pretended to have any values.”

And Democrats’ claims that Republicans are waging a “war on women,” Moncrief said, are the latest replacement for the time-worn “race card.”

“The ‘war on women’ is just another extension of the race card. When you cannot control the narrative, you have to think of a way to attack. … If it’s not them [women] it’s black people. Women should be offended that they are the new pawns in this political game.”

The rest of Anita Moncrief’s eye-opening interview will be online Monday morning, only at The Daily Caller.

Diecash1,

 "No truth to be had there; merely partisan hackery and nothing more.  That's probably why y0u like it so much."

As you are a card carrying member of the liberal hive at Swampland it is my guess that you wouldn't recognize the truth if it leaped up and bit you on the arse.

People depressed about an eventual Romney win of the Presidency.

1.  Libtards who continue to back the most failed Presidency in history.

2.  The Chinese Government

http://thecable.foreignpolicy....

Tampa - China's state-controlled media lashed out at GOP presidential candidate Mitt RomneyMonday, warning that his policies would poison U.S.-China relations.

"By any standard, the U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's China policy, as outlined on his official campaign website, is an outdated manifestation of a Cold War mentality," read a commentary in Monday's China Daily. "It endorses the ‘China threat' theory and focuses on containing China's rise in the Asia-Pacific through bolstering the robust U.S. military presence in the region."The Chinese state-owned outlet said that Romney was "provoking" China by promising to supply Taiwan with aircraft and other military platforms and called his China approach "pugnacious."

We are used to "State owned media", we have our very own right here in the USA represented by the likes of NBC, CBS, and ABC

More hypocrisy and lying from the Romney camp.  From The Plum Line blog:

Get this: The Romney campaign’s position is now that the Obama camp

should pull its ads when fact checkers call them out as false — but that

Romney and his advisers should feel no such constraint.

This is not an exaggeration. This is really the Romney campaign’s position.

As Buzzfeed reports this morning,

top Romney advisers say their most effective ads are the ones

attacking Obama over welfare, and that they will not allow their

widespread denunciation by fact checkers as false slow down their

campaign one little bit:

“Our most effective ad is our welfare ad,” a top television

advertising strategist for Romney, Ashley O’Connor, said at a forum

Tuesday hosted by ABCNews and Yahoo! News. “It’s new information.”...

The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” awarded Romney’s ad “four Pinocchios,” a measure Romney pollster Neil Newhouse dismissed.

“Fact checkers come to this with their own sets of thoughts and

beliefs, and we’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact

checkers,” he said.

Read the rest too:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

These people really are disgusting.  They lie incessantly, regardless of the actual facts being pointed out to them and they're relying on their low-information voter base to disregard the facts.  This is made possible by idiots like Rick Perry in Texas dumbing down the entire populace of the state.  Unbelievable.

Having put our troops into harms way with his failed "COIN" operation.  The media remains mute.

Why is that?  Why has the leftist media gone mute when it comes to Obama.  If this was Bush, they would be all over it.  But with Obama, nothing.  

Amazing.  And they wonder why the SEALS are coming out in droves to put this President out of office.

American servicemen are being killed in Afghanistan at an accelerating rate by Afghans who ostensibly are their allies.

These attacks have been dubbed “green-on-blue” incidents, an antiseptic and deliberately mild way of describing the treachery of Muslim natives (designated by the Islamic color green) against our folks (the blue forces). Such murders “inside the wire” are deemed to be so serious a threat that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, went to Afghanistan last week to assess what is being done to prevent them in the future.

That challenge is made considerably harder by the fact that President Obama’s strategy for extricating the United States from the war in Afghanistan is to have U.S. personnel train, advise and otherwise help Afghan army and police units assume responsibility for the war’s conduct as we rapidly pull out. Consequently, Afghans willing to take out Americans have plenty of opportunities to do so — and the latter essentially are unceasingly vulnerable to attack.

Unfortunately, an even bigger factor in our troops’ vulnerability to such violence is the refusal of their chain of command to recognize and understand, let alone effectively counter, the motivation behind it. For example, the commander of U.S. and other foreign forces in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. John Allen, attributed the recent uptick in green-on-blue attacks to irritability on the part of Afghan personnel performing missions at high operational tempos while sweltering in summer heat and hungry because of the Ramadan fast. The appropriate response? In a Friday op-ed column in The Washington Post, the general declared, “The closer the relationship, the more secure, ultimately, our troops will be.”

Syndicated columnist Diana West has caustically observed, “Like his brothers-in-brass, Allen is all about ideology — the COIN [counterinsurgency] ideology. This Leftist dogma transmuted to the battlefield is founded on the Big Lie of ‘universalism,’ which takes in the absurd but also liberty-threatening belief that all cultures, all religions, all civilizations have interchangeable values and aspirations. The theory is easily disproven, but it remains a commandment of postmodern gospel.”

Pursuant to the Team Obama-approved COIN doctrine, the posture our troops in harm’s way in Afghanistan must adopt is one of doing everything possible not to give offense to the Afghans. In fact, in February, the military distributed to U.S. forces in theater a handy pocket guide titled “Inside the Wire Threats — Afghanistan Green on Blue.” It is all about establishing a “bond of trust” betweenAfghan army and NATO personnel.

Interestingly, another document, produced for the military’s use in May 2011 by Jeffrey Bordin, a military behavioral scientist, shows why, as a practical matter, that can’t happen. This unclassified “red team” analysis suggested that the problem is, as its title suggests, “A Crisis of Trust and Cultural Incompatibility.” It found, based on extensive interviews with U.S. and NATO troops, that practices inspired by, condoned or even mandatory under the brutally repressive Islamist doctrine of Shariah — such as the “poor treatment and virtual slavery of women in Afghan society”; the practice of child abuse, including the “raping and sodomizing of little boys”; and the torture of dogs — contributed to a “cultural gap” that alienated U.S. and Western personnel from their trainees and other native counterparts.

"Last night you were accusing everyone who uses Facebook of condoning pedophilia, bizarrely including yourself."

====================================

No, Mori. I did not. I pointed out that the honchos at Facebook, Obama supporters all, explained their refusal to remove a pedophile page from Facebook by classifying it as humor.

"The social-media outfit still hasn’t deleted the “Pedophiles are people too” page from its website despite a torrent of complaints. Facebook says the site — where people have posted comments about having sex with 9-year-olds — is humor."
