  • Obama File 110 Collusion! How Socialist Stanley Meyerson Kickstarted the Obama Propaganda Machine

    New Zeal ^ | 8/2/10 | Trevor Loudon
    I have contended for some time that Barack Obama owes his political career by three marxist organizations, Communist Party USA, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism and Democratic Socialists of America. Of the three, Obama's decades old ties to Democratic Socialists of America are most easily documentable. Part of this support has come in the form of favorable media stories about Obama and in orchestrated attacks against his opponents. It is no coincidence that several members of the recently exposed, pro Obama JournoList; had close ties to D.S.A. Harold ; Meyerson is both a leading U.S. journalist and a...
  • Controversy proves collusion among liberal journalists

    08/02/2010 9:18:54 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies · 5+ views ^ | August 1, 2010 | Glenn Harian Reynolds
    Conservatives have long claimed that the media is biased against them and tries hard to shape stories in ways that help Democrats and hurt Republicans. This has sometimes been dismissed as paranoia - as in my former MSNBC co-blogger Eric Alterman's book, "What Liberal Media?" - but it turns out to be truer than they imagined. If this were a Hollywood movie, there would have been clandestine meetings in basements or bars or parking garages. But since it was real life, it was just an e-mail list, called "JournoList," set up by the Washington Post's Ezra Klein. It had over...

    JournoList was an email group of approximately 400 journalists, bloggers and academics, who reportedly worked to influence news reporting in favor of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party during and after the 2008 Presidential elections. The latest list of alleged "Journolistas" has turned up a very interesting name - Robert Kuttner of The American Prospect. This man is no basement blogger or CNN hack, he is the author of two books on the President and is connected to some of Obama's most influential enablers. Robert Kuttner's March 2008 "Obama's Challenge:American's Economic Crisis and the Power of a Transformative Presidency" is...

    New e-mail messages published by the Daily Caller Thursday show a coordinated effort by the JournoList's members to destroy Sarah Palin the moment she was named John McCain's running mate on August 29, 2008. Some even discussed how the former Alaska governor's decision to have a Down Syndrome baby rather than abort it could be used against her. As the attacks ensued, the Nation's Chris Hayes wrote, "Keep the ideas coming! Have to go on TV to talk about this in a few min and need all the help I can get."

    Sarah Palin has thrown in her two cents about the Daily Caller’s Journolist leaks on her Facebook account. As David Corn noted on his Twitter account, she seems to miss the rather important point that Journolist is expressly a liberal listserv – and especially that most of those quoted in today’s story work for avowedly liberal publications. Still, it’s worth a read. This may all have the result of making Spencer Ackerman wildly famous. It’s encouraging for commonsense conservatives who are frustrated with media cover-ups and biases to see truth revealed.Remember the infamous “Journolist” – the listserv chat group of...

Remember the infamous “JournoList” – the listserv chat group of hundreds of “prominent” mainstream media personalities? It seems The Daily Caller obtained copies of the JournoList email exchanges from the 2008 campaign having to do with the media’s coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, then candidate Obama’s pastor of 20 years. It’s everything you may have suspected. This, in the words of one JournoList member: “I do not endorse a Popular Front, nor do I think you need to. It’s not necessary to jump...

Yet, you have this quote from the Hotair story about the JOURNOLIST listsrv: "Update: But was the campaign effective? Ed Driscoll put together a video showing the correlation of this effort on Journolist and the declaration by CNN that it would be a “Wright-free zone.” Correlation isn’t causation, but this is a pretty interesting juxtaposition." It is clear that CNN was influenced by the JOURNOLIST effort, but you don't get this kind of results without someone on the inside (working for CNN) actively participating. So here...

    It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign. The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public –...

Campaigns have long made videotapes of each other, using “trackers” who follow the opposition from event to event. It was a young tracker who shot the video footage of then-Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) that wound up sinking his campaign. The DNC hopes campaigns and journalists will use the footage in ads and news coverage. The site targets both 2010 candidates...

    Late Friday night as the Memorial Day weekend began, Arizona's Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, in effect, suspended the state's Democratic attorney general from defending the new law in upcoming legal challenges. (Snip) Brewer said, "I believe the federal government should use its legal resources to fight illegal immigration, not the State of Arizona." Seeing apparent collusion between the two Democrat lawyers, Brewer pulled the plug Friday night. Her statement (full text below) said: Due to Attorney General Goddard’s curious coordination with the U.S. Department of Justice today and his consistent opposition to Arizona’s new immigration laws, I will direct my...

We can see this in the facile reporting by USA Today's travel reporter, Barbara De Lollis. Hers titled, "Arizona immigration law backlash? Traveler says state 'is off my travel list for sure,'" is a screamer for the wild assumptions and unproved and unprovable assertions made in order to further the Old Media agenda. De...

    Here is video from Morning Joe today, where Joe Scarborough actually likened the new Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law to Nazi "Guards" demanding, "show me your papers." Scarborough said that even he - as an anti-amnesty person - "is offended by this," and said it will be a "nightmare for Republicans" in 2012 if they are identified, as Chuck Todd described it as, "the Party of 'Show me your papers.'" This analysis is beyond over the top. The Arizona law is essentially what the Federal Law already is, but it is not being enforced. To equate what Arizona is doing to...

Seventeen percent said they could go out of business within a decade without "significant new funds, revenue streams or partnerships" while 24 percent put their life-span at three to five years.

But prosecutors shouldn't stop at Geithner, who merely kept up the disdainful tradition of doing anything Wall Street wanted that was begun by his predecessor and mentor-in-crime Hank Paulson. Yes, this would be a can of worms. But once investigators start down this path the public will finally have a better idea of who scratched whose back under the pretext that the country had this horrible financial...

    Obama's Budget Chief Has Child With Ex-Girlfriend January 7, 2010 WASHINGTON — Modern relationships can be complex. Just ask White House budget director Peter Orszag, whose ex-girlfriend gave birth to his daughter a few weeks before he got engaged to a different woman. Orszag and his ex-girlfriend, Claire Milonas of New York, released a joint statement on the birth of their daughter this week after The New York Post reported the story. “In November, Claire gave birth to a beautiful baby girl,” they said. “Although we are no longer together, we are both thrilled she is happy and healthy, and...

    White House Budget Director Peter Orszag released a statement Wednesday about the birth of a daughter out-of-wedlock. The mother of Tatiana Zoe is Orszag's former girlfriend, Claire Milonas. She gave birth on Nov. 17, months after she and Orszag broke off their relationship. Orszag has since become engaged to ABC News reporter Bianna Golodryga, whom he met in April at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in Washington. The joint statement from Orszag and Milonas said the two were in a committed relationship until the spring of 2009. “In November, Claire gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Although we...

    As you start to read all this, you'll laugh at how incestuous it all gets. Let's start with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which as I've noted in the past is tied in with the Soros foundation. Together, the two worked on something called The Project on Death in America.(PDIA) And speaking of Mr Soros, he himself(his foundations) have given directly to NPR. Compared to some of the other numbers I'm seeing, it's a small amount of $250,000. But it doesn't matter. Soros money is soros money in my book. Additional information about RWJF can be found here....

    The New York Times broke the story online yesterday that ABC economics reporter Bianna Golodryga, a regular contributor to Good Morning America, will marry Obama budget chief Peter Orszag next fall. They broke the happy news on the first half-hour of GMA Tuesday after Golodryga subbed in at the morning news desk and finished the newscast with Bristol Palin's custody suit with her ex-boyfriend and Playgirl model Levi Johnston. She quipped of Orszag: "There was no Playgirl shoot in his portfolio." Jackie Calmes reported the pairing yesterday:

    The health care debate began for real in June when ABC devoted an entire hour to Obamacare in a special edition of ABC's Prime time hosted anchor Charlie Gibson and (now incoming anchor) Diane Sawyer. Called "Questions for the President: Prescription for America" the special aired on June 24, 2009, from the East Room of the White House. Basically Obama was given solo airtime to pitch his health care agenda both in prime time and later that evening on Nightline. To make matters worse, Conservatives for Patients' Rights (CPR) a group that opposes Obamacare tried to air commercials giving the...

    The FCC Licenses of state run mainstream media outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, NY Times, and others should be challenged and aggressively uncovered for their treachery in both conspiring with the Democrats, daily, to shape the news, rather than report it. "Hijacked Iranian Ship was a Dirty Bomb Meant for Israel on Yom Kippur This amazing story reveals that Iranians planned to detonate a radioactive "dirty bomb" off Israel's coast on Yom Kippur. This was to be the long-anticipated Iranian attack on Israel. Not the expected rocket attacks (which could be intercepted by the Israelis) but an...

    I missed this yesterday at Newsbusters but Treacher, rightly aghast, tipped me to it this afternoon. Never will you see a starker example of MSNBC getting away with the sort of deception for which Fox News would be pilloried, especially in the context of race. If you missed Monday’s post about this, go watch the footage (or look at this photo) and see if you can deduce why they wouldn’t want to show the guy with the rifle from the neck up during this particular segment. For all the well-deserved heat that MSNBC’s primetime line-up has taken for its demagoguery...

    Ah, democracy! It never works better than when informed citizens gather in town hall meetings to discuss and debate the issues of the day. But, oh, democracy! It's never more damaged than when partisan zealots plot to disrupt town hall meetings in order to prevent any honest debate of the issues. And that's exactly what's happening in health care forums held across the nation by members of Congress. We've seen it in Philadelphia; Austin, Texas; Georgetown, Del.; Salisbury, Md; and other communities. Taking a page right out of a Nazi playbook, organizers bus in professional protestors and arm them with...

    In an open letter sent today to ABC President David Westin, Media Research Center President and Publisher Brent Bozell questioned the ethics of ABC as a "news" network and wondered "how in the world can anyone take ABC seriously" after it was announced that ABC News has hired Democrat donor Dr. Richard Besser to be their new Senior Medical Editor. The letter appears in its entirety below the fold.
