Dana Loesch: Surveyor Symbols vs. Crosshairs

Posted by joshpainter on January 11, 2011

Why do you see the speck in your brother’s eye but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?” – Matt. 7-3

Leftists are in denial over Rebecca Mansour’s explanation that the symbols used on the now infamous SarahPAC map were surveyor’s symbols, not crosshairs, an “inconvenient truth” which does not fit their false narrative of trying to blame Gov. Palin for the Tuscon shootings.

At Big Journalism, Dana Loesch offers a quick course in Map Symbols 101:

These are surveyor’s symbols:

And compare:

These are crosshairs:

And a bullseye:

The sort used in the DLC [Democratic Leadership Council] map:

The Freepers were all over it in March.

I think a lot of people owe Sarah Palin an apology.

You can read Dana’s Big Journalism posts here.

And by repetition, regarding leftists’ claims that Gov. Palin “scrubbed” the map — Wrong, it’s still on her facebook page:

We never removed this Facebook post: http://is.gd/kokfD The “Take Back the 20” website is no longer relevant now that the election is over.

Allow us to spell it out for hysterical “progressives” — The “Take Back The 20” website was created specifically for the midterm elections. After election day, SarahPAC saw no need to continue to incur the expense of maintaining the site, especially with the post announcing the “20” effort still up on Facebook for archival purposes.

Of course, those leftists who aren’t condemning Gov. Palin for “scrubbing” the map are condemning her for not removing it from Facebook, claiming that she is “insensitive” for leaving it there. With the hate-deranged left, Sarah Palin is villified, no matter what she does or doesn’t do.

Update: The U.S. Geological Survey, on “Provisional-Edition” maps, uses the same symbol employed by SarahPAC to mark “Principal points.” See here and here. That’s why it is referred to as a “surveyor’s symbol.”

Sarah Palin Flashback: ‘We know violence isn’t the answer’

Posted by joshpainter on January 11, 2011

A reminder at Big Government that this is not the first time the Democrat/Media Complex has shamelessly tried to use Sarah Palin’s “Take Back The 20” map to demonize her. Just three days after the map was posted on her Facebook page, campaigning for John McCain (ironically in Arizona), the left’s demonization of her had reached a fever pitch. Gov. Palin made it crystal clear in her speech that day that she and other conservatives were not inciting violence, but intended to use their votes to send a message to the Democrats that the public did not want any part of the unpopular ObamaCare measure that they had rammed through Congress:

Gov. Palin: “Hearing the news reports lately, this kinda ginned up controversy about us common sense conservatives ‘inciting violence’ because we happen to oppose some of the things in the Obama administration. 

Man in Audience: “We do it with our vote!”

Gov. Palin: “Amen, brother! That’s what you do it with, with your vote! You got it right. We know violence isn’t the answer. When we take up our arms, we’re talking about our vote. We’re talking about being involved in a contested primary like this, and picking the right candidate…”

“But this B.S. coming from the lamestream media lately about this, about us inciting violence. Don’t let the conversation be diverted. Don’t’ let a distraction like that get you off track. Keep fighting hard for these candidates who are all about the common sense conservative solutions that we need.”

The Emperor’s New Clothes

Posted by ehvogel on January 11, 2011

The advance of technology is amazing. In just a few short years, the Internet has transformed American society. Some may say for the bad, but from my perspective, it’s all for the good.

We now share photos and videos online while corresponding to family, friends and associates through various social media. We shop online, research projects online and obtain our news online. We do all these things in the here and now, as we need to.

Remember email? I defy you to find a teenager that has sent an email in the last 12 months. Their preferred means to communicate is by sending text messages on their cellphones or, as they get older, linking up on Facebook. By the time adults hear about anything having to do with anything related to school, kids have already disseminated all things related to, well, whatever. In a teenager’s world, communication is immediate, relevant and proactive. After all, no teenager wants to be behind the curve on breaking news!

For adults, how does this technology aid us? After all is said and done, baby-boomers are certainly tech-savvy while our parents are still trying to figure out email, albeit grudgingly. The point is that they WANT to learn. Their world has been defined by the nightly news, hand-written letters and the Sears catalog. They are desperate to gain access to all that is going on. Why? Because, like teenagers, no one wants to be behind the curve when it comes to news.

Now, all of a sudden, we have iPods, iPads, laptops, computers and all sorts of things that make accessing the Internet fairly simple. Baby-boomers have taken notice. They no longer rely on the nightly news to find out the “truth”, which used to be called “the news”. They have cable, satellite and fiber optics to access programming. They have Netflix, Hulu and other outlets to access, well, whatever. All major retail outlets have websites that you can buy from or peruse before you buy at the store.

In a world of instant access, the mainstream media is being shown to wear The Emperor’s New Clothes. In light of the horrific act that took place in Tucson at a Congresswoman’s event at a neighborhood grocery store, a vast majority of Americans dismissed the mainstream media’s reporting. They dismissed the ridiculous assertions that Sarah Palin had somehow “incited” a shooting because she used the metaphor of “targeting” on her PAC website during the 2010 elections. They dismissed any suggestion that the Tea Party was responsible. They learned the truth from their contacts on the Internet. They did what teenagers do and searched out the truth from sources they felt comfortable with.

If you think that this event is an anomaly, think again. More Americans are choosing to obtain the “truth” from their own research on the Internet than ever before. My 88 year-old mother just sent me a message (on the iPad she got for Christmas) that she identified me as her son on Facebook. She’s trying very hard to be a part of the goings-on, despite her failing eyesight. She not unlike the teenager that just doesn’t want to be the last person to hear about what’s going on. In fact, she’s like everyone of us: she doesn’t like not knowing. She just wants to know the truth. To her, The Emperor’s New Clothes aren’t there.

Left Gives Up On Blaming Palin For Arizona Tragedy “It’s All The Fault Of Video Games” or something

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 11, 2011

Over at The Atlantic the home of the most rational and stable of commentators Andrew Sullivan “Lord Sullivan of the Uterus” they have issued a special editorial. Interesting the commentariat now thinks Sullivan is so unhinged they have to disown him as a Republican plant !

“I’m convinced that Andrew Sullivan is doing an elaborate right-wing moby performance. He’s pretending to be a left winger so that he can make Democrats look so bad that they’ll come fleeing back to the Republican Party.”

If Andrew Sullivan really does believe everything he types then it’s going to take a lot more than an intervention from editors at The Atlantic to restore some sanity to his writing.”

Now that it has been determined that Loughner was not a Tea party/Republican/ Palin supplicant/Limbaugh fanatic, it is time for sweetness and light-let’s all be kumbaya together they opine.


” Many of the people who rushed to blame this on their political opponents made themselves look like first class jerks, an impression that was not improved when we got more information, and they doubled down rather than simply admit that they had perhaps jumped to conclusions. “


Who were these people who “jumped to conclusions” Megan ? Was it Michael Daly at the N.Y. Daily News who said that Palin “had blood on her hands”? Why don’t you, in the interest of post liberal fanaticism around this incident, and in the name of this newly found balance-call out those who set fire to this issue? A rhetorical question of course.


However, in their new found concern for finding the “real” reason for Loughner’s mad act they have hit on the perfect scapegoat which anyone-especially parents can agree with.


“zootfenster1 day ago
As more information comes out, I suspect that we will discover two things. First, his thinking process makes no sense to us. This is not a major tip off because half of my acquaintances make little sense on many subjects and they are considered “normal”. Secondly, I suspect that we will find the young man was expert in first person shooter video games. It is actually quite difficult to hit another person with a handgun without extensive practice and stress reduction training. Video games improve hand – eye coordination and reduce the psychological blocks to harming another human being.”
 
Yes,why didn’t Olberman/Krugman et al think of this in the immediate aftermath of the shooting when they rushed to judgement?

Left Media Calling For Palin’s Arizona Statement So They Can Jeer She’s Taking Advantage of It

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 11, 2011

As Kathryn Jean Lopez at The Corner puts it:

“Call me naive, but maybe there is no grand political strategy here. Maybe Sarah Palin just realizes this is not about her — and she’s not going to take the bait from a media that insists otherwise. No doubt she’ll talk about it more after funerals and after Rep. Giffords is not in danger. But it would be hubris to walk onto Hannity a night or two after a shooting and buy into the idea that the political world somehow revolves around her. I don’t get the impression she thinks that way. I get the impression MSNBC and others are desperate for it to be that way.”

And as if to agree with that statement (and the Morning Joe crew insisting that Palin come out with a public statement), here is MSNBC’s “First Read”:

“Palin’s silence:

By the way, the silence from Sarah Palin — besides her offer of condolences on Saturday and her e-mail to Glenn Beck — has been deafening. As Republican David Frum said in Andrea Mitchell’s “TODAY” piece this morning, “You can hunker down, and you say, ‘It’s not my fault.” And, of course, she’s right — it’s not her fault. Or you can be bigger than that. You can go out and … you can be the leader that Americans want to see.” In many ways, this moment is a presidential test, and she’s chosen to ignore it so far.”

The New York Times comments that: “Palin, amid criticism, stays in electronic comfort zone” and adds criticism of her from the ubiquitous and always helpful unnamed “some Republicans”.

Whilst Jeremy P. Jacobs at the National Journal calls the Arizona tragedy “A significant PR disaster” for Palin-that’s the media showing all heart,  isn’t it,  and showing what they think is the real takeaway from the tragedy.

Lets get real here. If Palin had not maintained the dignified silence she has so far and had made any statement, apart from the truly saddened one she did on Facebook, there would have been howls of rage from the left. She would have been accused of “feasting on tragedy,” using someone’s death “which she caused’ for her own rotten ends- “has this woman no shame” – and, well you can write these insanities yourself.

Even the personal e-mail Palin sent to Glen Beck, which was an exercise in caring dignity, and may or may not have been intended for wider dissemination has come under fire. When the time is right, which this particularly sensitive woman will feel, Palin will make a statement commensurate with the dignity of the situation.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the rabid left will parse every word and find something to criticize-she is, frankly, damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t in their eyes.

The final judges on this will be the wider public, and I remain confident that all the smears and attacks against her will be seen for what they are by a public who is not fooled by this campaign of hate.

Oops: America Not Buying Left Wing Lies About Sarah Palin, Arizona Shooting

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 11, 2011

…. Even half of the DEMOCRATS polled aren’t buying it!

By Gary P Jackson

Well now …. it looks like the efforts by the left wing and their media partners to blame Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, talk radio, and puppies for the Arizona tragedy just ain’t makin’ it. Kinda sad because they have tried so hard, using the most extreme pretzel logic imaginable, to use this tragedy for political gain.

Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air notes:

A majority of 57% say that politics had nothing to do with the shooting, and even a plurality of 49% of Democrats agree (via Dan Spencer):

Nearly six in 10 Americans say the country’s heated political rhetoric is not to blame for the Tucson shooting rampage that left six dead and critically wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to a CBS News poll.

In the wake of the shooting, much focus has been put on the harsh tone of politics in Washington and around the country, particularly after a contentious midterm election. Rhetoric and imagery from both Republicans and Democrats have included gun-related metaphors, but the majority of the country isn’t connecting the shooting to politics.

It seems that the public has been able to separate the spin from the actual facts, which show that Loughner was a loon acting out of insanity and a personal grudge against Giffords, one completely of his own making. The publicity-hound sheriff who’s supposed to be leading the investigation may want to get around to, you know, looking at the evidence, as the feds apparently have done:

There’s mounting evidence that the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords wasn’t a political act but a plan by a disturbed high school dropout who had few friends and no clear agenda. …Instead, Loughner may have had some self-generated dislike of Giffords that stemmed from when he first spoke to her at an event in 2007.

Looks like the left has failed massively here. The American people aren’t stupid. They understand that someone who leans to the left, and has been obsessing on Congresswoman Giffords long before Sarah Palin was known, or the Tea Party existed, might just have other issues.

As Morrissey continues:

The media spin of the first 48 hours failed to even convince the predisposed. Only 42% of Democrats in the survey believed that the shootings were a political act, and independents broke out at about the same ratio as the overall sample, 56/33. That is very good news for America, and bad news for those in the media and in Congress who hoped to leverage the shooting to pass gun-control and speech-control legislation and bully grassroots conservatives into silence.

We knew the devious little buggers on the left would overplay this and turn everyone off, but the moment we knew they had really crashed and burned came last night during the Sean Hannity Show. Bob Beckel, one of THE most partisan democrats out there, and absolutely no fan of Sarah Palin’s, quietly and calmly defended her. Beckel didn’t just defend her, but took some pride in the fact that he, in his words, “invented the idea of putting targets on politicians.”

I know the left will never stop attacking, and the corrupt media will never stop carrying their water, but it’s comforting to know the American people are much smarter than they are and won’t buy into their lies and smears.

Jews For Sarah: Now Sarah Palin Is “An Honorary Jew”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 11, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Our friends over at JewsForSarah sent us this today:

JewsForSarah ‘Comment of the Year’ Award . . . Goes to . . .

Eugene V., of Albany, CA, who wrote us:

The propensity of the liberal media to blame everything on Sarah Palin reminds me of how the Jew-haters blame everything on Jews. Hence, I move to make Sarah an ‘honorary Jew.’But we need a minyan [quorum for public prayer]. Are there 9 more Jews who are willing to join me?

Sarah has a strong following among the independent Jewish community. She has long stood with Israel, that, and her stand for Freedom and Liberty is quite inspiring.

More Violent Democrats: Congressman Paul Kanjorski On Florida Governor Rick Scott: “Put him against the wall and shoot him.”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 11, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

As the corrupt media, and lying, hypocritical democrats [yeah, I know, same thing] continue to try and blame Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and everyone else for the tragic mass murder in Arizona by a crazed left winger, we are continuing to highlight real calls for violence and death by democrats.

The latest is from corrupt democrat Paul Kanjorski, a Congressman who was just soundly defeated in November. Before the election Kanjorski made the statement that Florida’s Rick Scott, now Governor Rick Scott, should be put against a wall and shot.

As the American Spectator’s Jeffrey Lord reports:

Congressman Paul Kanjorski, the Pennsylvania Democrat who just lost his seat to Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta, a Republican, had another target on his mind before he lost his election.
Curiously, that would be Rick Scott, now the Republican Governor-elect of Florida. Kanjorski is clearly not a Scott fan. In fact, he has suggested that the Governor-elect should be…shot.

You read that right. Here’s the quote, which seemed to vanish in the pre-election haze. It was reported at the time in the Scranton Times

From the Scranton Times:

That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida,” Mr. Kanjorski said. “Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him [sic] and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he’s running for governor of Florida. He’s a millionaire and a billionaire. He’s no hero. He’s a damn crook. It’s just we don’t prosecute big crooks.

This is pretty big talk from one of the most corrupt bastards in Congress!

Here’s a bit on what this crook was up to and an accompanying video:

Democrat Paul Kanjorski directed millions of taxpayer dollars for a company created and run by his family.

This video is about the case of Pennsylvania Democratic congressman Paul Kanjorski, who earmarked millions of taxpayer dollars for a company run by his family.

In a startling interview, Joe Yudichak, who ran the non-profit Regional Equipment Center in Kanjorski’s district, says the congressman initially tried to bully him into helping Kanjorski direct the money to Kanjorski’s family members. In the documentary, Yudichak recounts his conversation with Kanjorski: “He said, ‘You’re telling me I can’t take care of my family?’ He said, ‘Well, I’m telling you, it’s gonna be done. And it’s gonna be done with you or without you.’ And he said, ‘I’ll bury you. I’ll destroy you.'”

Kanjorski later earmarked more than $10 million directly to the company run by his family. The money was supposed to fund the development of new technologies to help turn around desperate coal towns and make them prosperous.

The company, Cornerstone Technologies, went bankrupt.

Harold Shobert, head of Pennsylvania State University’s Energy Institute, and a leading expert on anthracite coal, worked with Cornerstone on one project. Shobert said “It was clear that these guys were clueless as to how to do research and development,” “It was sort of like trying to collaborate with the cast of Looney Tunes.”

This Fox New’s Chris Wallace’s reporting on this corrupt scumbag former Congressman:

Kanjorski is a crook, a liar, a hypocrite, and a despicable human being. Pennsylvania voters were right to throw this dirt back out of office. This is a good look though, at how democrats constantly project their own wicked personality traits on others.

One wonders if he would recommend the same punishment he wished on Governor Rick Scott, for himself.

One thing’s for sure, this crook should be in prison.

Now one has to ask, which is more likely to incite a left wing whack-job, who had been stalking someone since 2007, before the Tea Party was formed, and anyone knew who Sarah Palin was: Some map, or a crooked scumbag democrat Congressman engaging in Soviet style class warfare and calling for the actual death of the Governor of Florida?

We all know the hypocrisy from the left knows no bounds, but they have really jumped the shark with this Arizona tragedy.

More to come.

Insane Liberals Hit Rock Bottom: Now Attacking The Parents Of 9 Year Old Girl Murdered In Arizona

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 11, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Just when you think the left can sink no lower, turns out they are nowhere near rock bottom. This certainly gets them closer though.

Steve Watson reports:

How low will some people stoop to play at partisan politics by exploiting the weekend’s tragic events? We’ve already seen the bar set pretty damn low by elements of the media and some public officials, yet its hard to imagine how much further anyone can go than to verbally attack the parents of the slain 9 year old Christina Taylor Green.

Yet this is exactly what sometime AOL writer Jeanne Sager does in an article published today on parenting blog Cafemom.com.

Here’s just a taste of this nasty liberal’s rant:

Seeing the couple on Dateline NBC last night, my first inclination was to grit my teeth and ask what kind of parent is ready to go on national TV 24 hours after the loss of their child?

The same type of parents who paraded their child out in a book about babies born on 9/11/01? They don’t deserve to be parents if they’re going to use horrors for their own gains.

…. watching the Greens so exacting as they spoke of their daughter, so unfeeling. What, you couldn’t even summon a tear for your little girl? Everywhere I look, they’re talking to the media. To Fox News. To USA Today.

Steve Watson goes on [emphasis mine]

Exactly what “gains” are we talking about here Ms Sager? Their beloved child has just been shot dead. What in the world makes you believe they are gaining anything?

Obviously Sager missed the entirety of John Green’s appearance on Fox News, in which he defiantly fought back the tears to convey the message that this awful but completely isolated and random event should not be exploited to revoke the core freedoms protected under the first and second amendments.

We don’t need any more restrictions on our society,” Mr Green said, adding that sometimes our continued freedom comes at an awful cost.

While Sager stops her attack short and admits it is “completely unfair” and that she “feels sorry” for the family, it doesn’t prevent her from ending the piece with the question “Did you find yourself wondering why the Greens didn’t get off TV?

The Greens are not fitting neatly into the script for those so called “liberals” that are happy to exploit the cold blooded murder of a child for political grist.

Presumably, Sager and her ilk would have no qualms with the TV appearances of the Greens should they have demanded the immediate passage of laws to make perceived threats a federal crime or to introduce hastily thrown together gun control bills.

The fact that their despicable smear machine has already ground to a halt in the wake of the revelation that gunman Jared Lee Loughner was a left-wing, pot-smoking liberal, rather than a flag waving tea party Sarah Palin supporter, is one blessing that the still sane can count.

Perhaps the only other is that in amongst a barrage of shameless partisan exploitation of another tragic event, Americans have been reminded that in the face of danger and darkness, there are still those who believe in preserving the values the nation was founded on, rather than tearing them apart.

It’s amazing. While a normal human being hears John Green, a father expressing his grief, as well as calling for the nation to remain calm, and not rush to blame, the liberal trash sees an opportunity to attack the man, and accuse him of what they, themselves are doing: Exploiting this horrific event for political gain. [something the left has been doing since the first shot rang out]

This is typical of the left. They want to feel superior, and will blame the victims if they don’t share their twisted ideology.

Watson is right when he points out that if Mr Green was a liberal, and spewing the usual liberal hysteria and calling for more government intervention, exploiting the tragedy to the fullest, nothing would have been said. Mr Green would have been hailed a some sort of hero.

When Sarah Palin’s young children were attacked by the vile left wing hate machine [and this includes her newborn son] the left’s excuse was “she put them out the for us to attack.

The kind of mentality that thinks that way is wicked and vile. But the kind of diseased mentality that thinks it’s OK to attack the parents of a beautiful little girl who was murdered by a deranged, left wing nut bag, is despicable, deplorable, and down right evil

A True Blessing: Congresswoman Giffords Responding To Verbal Commands By Raising Two Fingers And Gives Doctors A Thumbs Up

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 11, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Millions have been praying for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ recovery. All indications show that God has answered those prayers in a big way. Updates continue to bring very good news. From KOLD News-13:

Doctors treating Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ brain wound said Monday the congresswoman was responding to verbal commands by raising two fingers of her left hand and even managed to give a thumbs-up.

When she did that, we were having a party in there,” said Dr. Peter Rhee. “That’s a purposeful movement. That’s a great thing. She’s always grabbing for the tube.”

Giffords, 40, is in critical condition in the intensive care unit of Tucson’s University Medical Center after she was shot through the head Saturday during a meet-and-greet with voters outside a supermarket. Two patients were discharged Sunday night. Eight others, including Giffords, remained hospitalized.

Recent CAT scans showed no further swelling in the brain, but doctors were guarded.

We’re not out of the woods yet,” said her neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Lemole. “That swelling can sometimes take three days or five days to maximize. But every day that goes by and we don’t see an increase, we’re slightly more optimistic.”

After Saturday’s operation to temporarily remove half of her skull, doctors over the past two days had Giffords removed from her sedation and then asked basic commands such as: “Show me two fingers.”

When she did that, we were having a party in there,” said Dr. Peter Rhee. “That’s a purposeful movement. That’s a great thing. She’s always grabbing for the tube.”

Giffords family is by her side and is receiving constant updates from doctors. On Monday, two well-known doctors with extensive experience in traumatic brain injury were en route to Tucson to help consult on Giffords’ case.

Doctors had said the bullet traveled the length of the left side of the congresswoman’s brain, entering the back of the skull and exiting the front. Her doctors have declined to speculate on what specific disabilities Giffords may face as her recovery progresses.

As for the other shooting victims who suffered injuries to the face, neck, stomach and other parts of the body, doctors said most will have a normal recovery. To ensure that they don’t suffer post-traumatic stress, depression or other problems, teams of experts will guide them through the next phase.

This is such wonderful news. We understand that Congresswoman Giffords will have struggles ahead, but we can’t wait for her recovery, and pray we get to see her back at work in Congress serving the nation as she was called to do.

We will continue to pray for God’s steady hand as he guides Gabby Giffords through this ordeal.
