Yes, boys and girls, its story time again and have we got a whopper for you. This is a story about what may be one of the largest information conspiracies in recent memory. You wont find it in any history books, you wont find it in any of the revisionist propaganda theyre pumping into our kids heads, you sure wont find it in any publication of the Lame Stream Media thats because they are a huge part of the story.
President Eisenhower once said, Beware of the military-industrial complex. Today, that caution could as easily read, beware the Government / Main Stream Press complex. Its not just that Washington is pandering to the press the pols in Washville have long been media whores, vying with one another for as much face time as they can get.
The American media has shown a distinct leftward bias since long before the war in southeast Asia. Vietnam just more or less flushed them out into the open. Ill never forget Americas most trusted journalist, Walter Cronkite, bleating out that war in Vietnam was lost. This, after tens of thousands of American lives had been lost to an enemy that was all but on the ropes by its own admission. Cronkite, and other agit-prop journalists like Dan Rather, contributed materially to the defeat of the US and the Republic of South Vietnam leaving chaos throughout the region with our shameful withdrawal, which led directly to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese and millions of Cambodians. It is, and will remain, a shameful chapter in our history.
We are now in the penultimate political battle to save our Republic from the advances of totalitarianism. Its a lot more than a political fight this time. Its the classic confrontation between good and evil. Between those who would see us a vibrant nation of free people and those whose ideology is one of penury and destitution, enslaved to a totally discredited philosophy, one that history has proven does not work.
The incestuous relationship between the DeMarxists and, to be fair and balanced, some RINO republicrats and the Lame Stream Media, is far from new. Whats passing for much of the LSM upchuck these days is pure fantasy, driven Id guess from desperation. What they have done is to create the new media which is like a dagger, pointed at the heart of the evil empire.
Barack Hussein Obama, his government, and his willing accomplices of the Lame Stream Media, have been touting a recovering economy since practically the day he was elected. We have breathless media info-babes touting really fractional shifts of economic data as proof of recovery, while companies continue to close and others to lay off or not hire at all. Ive been saying all along that this is no recovery that there was nothing to back up the governments claims.
As weve come to expect, their methods of calculation are high on fanciful math creativity and low on objectivity and hard fact. As the Lame Stream has discovered it isnt that easy a sell, and neither are Obamas ideologically-based rantings.
