Skip to comments.The Emperor Has No New Clothes (Neil Munro)

On Friday of last week, while at the White Houses Rose Garden, a very interesting thing had happen to prove that even now, President Barack Hussein Obama did go over the line with this surprise decision to not deport young adults illegals who came over to the United States of America as infants or small children. It took the USA by complete surprise, considering on Friday afternoons is the traditional end of the week documents dumping time.
But the really BIG SURPRISE came when a gentleman from the online blog called The Daily Callers Neil Munro out of the blue comes out to question President Obama.
The really big question out of what had happen in all this is WHY WAS THERE A BIG DEAL IN ALL OF THIS BY THE OLD LIBERAL MSM?
I do believe I have an answer. It is because the new media is not only is starting to come not only of age but also the new media is coming into leadership when reporting what is really happening in the real world.
Also by what Mr. Murio did shows that even now not just the everyday Joe and Mary Q. American public is questioning why President Obama and his administration is overstepping their bounds, but also even a growing number of media people are starting to ask the very tough questions. Not only that, but Mr. Murio is simply is pointing out that this emperor in question has no new clothes. GOOD JOB Mr. Munro!
Also for those liberal news commentary folks, why are you whining that the President they have been supporting BIG TIME for three and half years has come under question for a very questionable decision in regards to illegal immigration in the USA? This has NOTHING to do with color but simply an illegal effort to allow for young adult illegals to stay here, when first of all they are here in the United States which for all purposes is against the law to begin with. Even people who came from other countries and all doing it the right way was blindsided by this spur-of-the-moment illegal and simply out-of-bounds decision by President Obama. Plus it would be wrong to do any tar and feathering of Mr. Munro when he was simply was doing his job.
All I say is let Mr. Munro do his work and while I am at it, it is time to do all that NEEDS to be done to vote President Obama out of office come this coming November, 2012.
Munro is a hero. The vast majority of the “media” is a slovenly mob of spineless sycophants.
Even Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has taken up this game also. Just saw this on Drudgereport:
It wasn’t impropriety or disrespect; the old guard simply didn’t want that question asked because they wanted that detail to be ignored.
Murrow said of Joe McCarthy:
His primary achievement has been in confusing the public mind, as between the internal and the external threats of Communism. We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men ... We proclaim ourselves, as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it continues to exist in the world, but we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad, and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn't create this situation of fear; he merely exploited itand rather successfully.
History seams to be repeating itself, only the actors have changed.
We come back stronger.
~ Barack Obama
On Friday, he goes forth with his intended purpose:
We [Amalek] remember.
We [Amalek] rebuild.
We [Amalek] come back stronger.
There is a mitzvah in the Torah to remember Amalek and his descendants and to orally recall their iniquity. We are to tell our children in each generation what the people of Amalek did to us during our departure from Egypt. This mitzvah will be fulfilled completely only when we shall have caused Amalek's memory to perish, and their name to be erased from the world, together with the slightest remnant of anything that bears their name. As the Torah says: 'Remember what Amalek did to you on the way, upon your departure from Egypt'... 'You shall erase the memory of Amalek from beneath the heavens, you shall not forget.' Upon which the Sages have expounded: 'Remember,' orally - 'You shall not forget,' in your heart.
To properly fulfill this commandment, the Sages have prescribed the public reading of this passage from a Torah scroll, once every year, on the Shabbat which precedes Purim - so that the 'wiping-out' of Amalek might be adjacent to the 'wiping-out' of Haman, the latter being a descendant of Amalek.
Curious that June 13th, the eve of Obamalek's vow, was the 23rd of Sivan. That was the day (Esther 8:9) the decree was written and sealed, allowing the Jews to defend themselves against Haman's decree to destroy them [which was set for 13 Adar]:
וְנִצְדַּק קֹדֶשׁ ...
... and then the holy [separated ones] will be vindicated.
In Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn tells the story of a village somewhere in the Russian countryside in the 1930s. Some Moscow party officials, along with some NKVD agents, paid a visit to the town and order the residents to all attend a town meeting where one of the party officials read aloud one or another of Stalin’s long, boring dreary speeches.
At the end of the reading, everyone in the town jumped to their feet and started clapping. They knew they were being watched and judged so they continued clapping and clapping and clapping. No one wanted to be the first person to STOP clapping and so the clapping went on and on and on. Only the NKVD agents stood stone-faced without clapping; they were busy watching, and waiting. The wanted to see who would stop clapping first.
Finally the eldest man in the village, and one of the village leaders, stopped clapping and sat down. Instantly everyone else stopped clapping and sat down.
The next day, the village elder who had stopped clapping first was arrested by the NKVD and transported to the Gulag where he quickly died.
Dana Milbank would NEVER be in danger of being the first to stop clapping. Dana Milbank is absolutely, 100% safe.
Whoops, sorry Biggirl, I posted this on the wrong thread. I meant to post this on a thread of an article by Dana Milbank, a Washington Post Obama butt-licker who is terminally upset with Munro. Even though it’s a good story, it doesn’t make much sense on this thread.
What they dissent from was the entire idea of liberty and our constitutional limits on the government.
We proclaim individual freedom, but that does not include the freedom to subvert that sense of individual freedom. What these communists that McCarthy noted were promoting was absolute freedom for those in control, and little for anybody else.
McCarthy might have overstated some things, but he was onto a central truth. There is no truth at all in our would be king. Murrow was an ass.
It’s okay - we can substitute a little bit and make it relevant... MSM = NKVD. Uhm, next, old Village Elder = Munro.
There - now it’s relevant!
Thanks for the fixup!
