MURDOCH WARNS: NATIONS WILL BE REDEFINED, FUTURES ALTERED
MURDOCH ^

Posted on 02/24/2009 8:09:02 AM PST by Scythian

Media baron Rupert Murdoch issued an urgent internal communication late Monday, warning his staff: "We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered."

Only if one sheepishly stands by and allows it to happen.

Were not screwed at all. In fact, I believe in America, her way of life, and the good ol average Joe sixpack.

There gonna keep pushin, but when the TRUE American patriots have had enough...there gonna come out swingin.

These lil progressive pukes will shrivel up in a little wimpering ball wonderin why they just got their a$$e$ handed to’em.

Reagan would have made the communist label stick. And Reagan would have laughed at McPain, nicely, but he would have done him like he did Mondale.

True. Reagan would've managed the RINOs and moderates well, and within his 11th comandment, "Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican."

However, the "true conservatives" would've savaged him from within the party. They would've beaten him down for signing amnesty, for selling arms to terrorists in Iran, for cutting-and-running from Lebanon, for nominating an NWO RINO like GHW Bush.

No way even a young Reagan beats Obama in Nov 2008 with the condition of the world and the conservatives as it was.

Boy, finally a fellow optimist. I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to win this thing outright. We just have to be smart about it. Let the libs overplay their hand - they're doing an excellent job so far.

What everyone seems to miss is that Hussein isn't going to be able to extend gov't control; rather, as the economy deteriorates due to his meddling & interference (can't wait for tonight's speech - LOL), he will actually preside over the collapse of the welfare state.

When the 'Katrinans' stop receiving their entitlement checks, waddaya think they're gonna do? The supreme cosmic justice is that Hussein is going to have to call out the troops against his own supporters.

At some point, central gov't will be so weakened from internal rot that it will just topple right over. At that point, all we have to do is walk in and start anew.

Mine too. Mine settled on land bought from William Penn, founded Middleburg PA and fought in the revolution. The past few months I’ve watched a trickle become a torrent until it’s hard to believe it’s actually happening.

Every time there’s a party change in the executive office the opposing side takes their pot shots, calls for impeachment, yells about fascism and how our country is doomed...but wow. All variables considered, we are likely in real trouble here.

> "where others might step back from their commitment to their viewers, their users, readers and customers – we will renew ours"

Unless, of course, a bunch of rabble-rousers misinterpret a CARTOON in the NY Post. Then, we'll cave in to popular misunderstanding and issue a retraction:

By RUPERT MURDOCH
February 24, 2009

As the Chairman of the New York Post, I am ultimately responsible for what is printed in its pages. The buck stops with me.

Last week, we made a mistake. We ran a cartoon that offended many people. Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted.

Over the past couple of days, I have spoken to a number of people and I now better understand the hurt this cartoon has caused. At the same time, I have had conversations with Post editors about the situation and I can assure you - without a doubt - that the only intent of that cartoon was to mock a badly written piece of legislation. It was not meant to be racist, but unfortunately, it was interpreted by many as such.

We all hold the readers of the New York Post in high regard and I promise you that we will seek to be more attuned to the sensitivities of our community.

The only problem with this scenario is that you are assuming that the rest of the world will just stand idly by and watch. if our government is so weak as to be easily toppled there will be a world full of dictatorial men who will race to take control.

I’m bothered by the fact that our new RNC wonder boy is virtually silent right now as well.

so much for leadership.

He should be calling R’s to action right now loudly and frequently.

Instead...*crickets*

And what the hell does THAT mean?

It means that our country will be as different after the coming upheaval from what it is now as it was before and after the upheavals of 1776, 1860, and 1943.

It’s truly amazing how things today in the media were basically foretold in this movie from the 1970’s.

“We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered.” And what the hell does THAT mean?

I think he's referring to the sorts of changes that characterized the Revolutions of 1848 in Europe. The shape of Europe was fundamentally changed. Germany, for example, was unified ... one consequence of which was the events leading up to World War I, WWII, and eventually the current geopolitical picture.

The collapse of national economies in this globalized economy would have similarly profound effects -- what happens to China, for example? What about the US?

Name one era in history when healthy societies weren't being “redefined” and their futures “fundamentally altered”

As I noted earlier, look at the example of Europe in 1848. The revolutions of that year fundamentally redefined the power structure of Europe, and eventually led to two world wars, a cold war, and finally the situation we see today.

I agree with most of what you said with the exception to,”At that point, all we have to do is walk in and start anew”

We need to insist that the GOP put true conservatives in the race. No more moderates, no more rino’s.

Enough is enough. Unless we get back to the core of conservatism, we stand little chance of gaining back millions of true conservative voters.

Since the late 16th century here. Actually, might have had some try and come over as part of the lost colony of Roanoke. On my father's side, his father, two uncles, and his mother all served in WW I, he, WW II & Korea. So I consider this country to be part of my DNA. And it makes me sick to see what's happening.

But I wouldn't say the Dream is dead, at least not yet. It's damn hard to kill a dream.

Exactly...what brought it about was Chernin’s departure, a rather substantial development in the life of the company. Mr. Murdoch sent it out paired with Chernin’s memo to the employees. Next thing you know it ends up on Drudge replete with the apocalyptic headline treatment.

As a newspaperman, he should be reporting the news. As a newspaper mogul, a very rich man, and someone with decided political opinions, he is in a position to make news, or at least influence events a good deal more than most people.

1943??

Actually the whole period from about 1930 to 1945. I can't think of any single event (year) in the Depression or WWII that represents the principle turning point so my choice of 1943 was kind of arbitrary.

Thank you. It amazes me how historically “illiterate” these educated writers can be. Must have slept though every history class they had in school. Reagan would have told them government aid, no matter how enticing, is a trap and pull your own bootstraps. Just my opinion, of course.;-)

Another reason the Clinton Administration was never aware of any terrorism is that he forced out some 40,000 intelligence officers (civilian and Military) in the first year of his Presidency.

It also doesn’t help that Clinton treated every act of terrorism like it needed to be investigated as a police-type action, and sent in the FBI! - and then didn’t do anything about it except to say that the offenders were going to be tracked down and prosecuted. Remember those trials? Right. There weren’t any!

I could continue - but it makes me so angry, I’ll quit before my Bp goes sky-high.

And - here we are, with a Socialist President who says he’s sending in 20,000 troops to Afghanistan but behind the scenes, tells the Pentagon to cut their budget by 10%.

I hope I’m alive to vote him out of office in 2012, I really do. But we’re going to need a reincarnation of Reagan, or a “Reagan-type” to lead us out of the morass of idiocy that BO will have perpetrated on this Country.

Mine since the 1600's, my wife's walked over. We, too are dismayed at the loss of freedom. I have not lost all hope in the future, but there is likely going to be more change than the Obamites bargained for. It won't be the same, but if we can keep pushing the moral, just, and righteous principles the founders tried to, we just might succeed.

It has taken decades of concerted and coordinated effort for the pendulum to swing this far, cunningly presented as attractive to (and often driven by the radical naivetee of) youth.

Now, henceforth, we are the 'counterculture', our ideas and ideals have become 'revolutionary', and aside from the lure of rebelliousness, the thirst for freedom is as inherent as the desire to breathe, especially in youth who rebel against authority by their nature, seeking their place in the scheme of things.

Guard your children and grandchildren, plant the seeds of the future in their minds, remind them of the glorious times when freedom was the hallmark of America, and it will endure this long night.

“actually I think the solution is fairly simple. deal with the old people. All you have to do is to kill everyone over the age of 80 and offer them the option of living in a cheaper country like the phillipines, thailand, etc with 1/4 the benefits they would get.

the retirement costs to society get cut by 75% or 100%, problem solved.”

Geeze, don’t give them any ideas!
