Media Mocks Concerned Americans Seeking Answers

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 8, 2013

I am weeping for for my country today.  It used to be that journalism was a profession of honor.  It was a career for seekers of truth; people with curiosity and writing skills who wanted to provide the “who, what, when, where, and why” of what happened in a particular situation.  Providing just the facts allowed the reader to form his/her own opinion on the matter at hand.  Sadly, that seems to no longer be the case as is evidenced here.  Earlier today, The Washington Post posted the following tweet regarding the hearings into what  happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

In case you’re having a hard time reading the tweet from the above picture, let me help you out:

Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers http://wapo.st/18YFgKP

Yes, you’re reading that correctly and yes, the “Twitter voice” of the Washington Post has stooped to mocking Americans who are deeply concerned about what transpired in Benghazi that fateful day when  four American lives were lost.

In response to the tweet from the Washington Post, I replied as follows:

WaPo_JSresponse

My tweet:

@washingtonpost Our ancestors & those that currently serve shed blood & DIE for a free press. Your job is seeking #truth . How dare you!

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page in response to the above:

Is there any wonder why distrust of arrogant, out-of-touch media is at an all-time high? During today’s Benghazi hearings, the Washington Post actually tweeted: “Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers.” This would be the same Washington Post that broke the story on Watergate. Now they just mock concerned Americans who want answers to why four brave Americans died, including two distinguished vets. And the Obama administration asks, “What does it matter?”

I don’t know that I can pinpoint exactly when journalism died but without a doubt, she’s dead and gone.

Palin: Taxed Enough Already

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 8, 2013

Constitution
Sarah Palin reminds everyone what the “TEA” in Teaparty stands for.  I would encourage you to take time to read all the way to the  “P.S.” at the end where Palin reminds us that anything the government gives us for “free” is being paid for by our hard-earned tax dollars.   Posted to Palin’s Facebook page May 7th:

Taxed Enough Already?

This new tax increase – the internet sales tax – must be stopped in the House. The Senate just passed it, and many Senators want to justify their tax increase vote by claiming that it will somehow “level the playing field” for brick and mortar retailers. This isn’t legit.

This is actually a boon to the big online powerhouses like Amazon who can afford the insane paperwork that comes with complying with government’s newest tax. The smaller mid-size online operations and smaller brick and mortar businesses, many family-owned with small staffs, who want to have larger online presences will be swamped with the regulatory paperwork of complying with the tax requirements for all these different states.

This new internet tax is not only another barrier to entry for smaller online start-ups, it’s a disincentive to grow a company. This will hit these smaller companies right where their margin of profit is, which means that this will cost jobs because when businesses lose profitability, they lay off workers or shut down.

Did Republicans who voted for this new tax on businesses forget that it will trickle down to consumers in this dangerously weak economic era? And when smaller and mid-size operations are pushed out of business, we have less competition and fewer choices in the marketplace.

Here’s an example: say you want to order Runner’s World’s re-release of Dr. George Sheehan’s book “Running and Being.” I just ordered it. You could get it at Amazon, and they’d have no problem calculating the minutia of sales tax regulations for your state because they have a boatload of employees (and lobbyists) to deal with this burden, but their base price for the book might be higher than the smaller online business competing with them. But thanks to this new internet sales tax, that smaller business will now have a whole new burdensome level of stifling government bureaucracy over their heads as they scramble to comply with various states’ sales tax rules and rates. And when this smaller business goes out of business because they can no longer make a profit, someone will lose his or her job and you will be left with fewer options when you go shopping for a better price online. Amazon doesn’t sweat it – in fact they support it.

Those “small government champions” of our middle class’s mom and pop businesses should ask themselves why they want to be any part of limiting the growth opportunities for smaller operations? More and more shopping is done online today, and every smart brick and mortar mom and pop wants to get in on that; and when they do, they should be allowed to produce by the sweat of their brow and ethically grow beyond being just a small online operation without worrying about a massive regulatory burden if they gross more than $1 million in sales in a year.

Bottom line: These anti-small business measures disincentivize the start-ups we need, and any measure to stick it to the consumer by increasing taxes for government growth is not what Republicans are supposed to fight for. I bet that once the tax increase is explained, your constituents won’t want you to contribute to government growth via increased internet taxes. And that’s what this is all about. House GOP, read your constituent’s lips: No New Taxes.

– Sarah Palin

P.S. I see that some are saying that a “positive” measure in this bill that the GOP Senators who voted for it liked is that it requires the government to provide “free” sales tax calculating software to all companies for compliance. Here’s a little newsflash: when it’s from the government, it’s not “free”! It’s being paid for by the very same people this new tax will hit in the pocketbook. That would be “We the People.”

Gov. Palin: Benghazi Hearings Will Define Obama’s Presidency

Tomorrow’s hearings on Benghazi will define the Obama presidency if the truth is finally allowed to be told. I encourage everyone to tune in and hear the revelations that are long overdue. We’ll also see whether the president’s reliable lapdog cheerleaders in the media will continue to cover up for him and in so doing disgrace their profession. The following link is to something I posted way back on October 25th of last year asking questions that we should have had answers to long ago.______________

– Sarah Palin

______________
There are many questions about the Benghazi attack that Americans deserve answers to. It’s been too long an “investigation” and too tragic for the families of lost loved ones for the White House and its friends in the media to ignore these questions:
________________
– When and why did the YouTube trailer of the anti-Muhammad movie …surface as any kind of credible reason for the attack?
___________________
– Where is the proof that that video was linked to Benghazi? It’s a weak excuse to claim some supposed rumored link between Benghazi and the attacks on our embassy in Cairo. Benghazi was very different. “Spontaneous” protestors don’t come armed with rocket-propelled grenades.
____________
– What was the President’s response to the previous Benghazi embassy attacks in April and June? Why did officials ignore the requests for beefed up security to protect Americans after these attacks?
_________________
– Why did the Obama Administration assume a YouTube video was the reason for the Benghazi attack but not all the evidence to the contrary from the postings and emails that circulated that night in real time as the attack took place and Americans were being killed? And why weren’t those emails disclosed until this week?
_______________
– Why did the Obama administration spend our tax dollars to make and air television ads that ran in the Middle East apologizing for the YouTube video when they had so much credible evidence that it was nothing but a red herring?
________________
– How much did President Obama know about this? In an interview he gave to CBS News on September 12, President Obama alluded to the fact that the Benghazi attack was not—as his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials were characterizing it—a “spontaneous” protest triggered by the Cairo embassy attack and the video. He told CBS News in that interview, “my suspicion is that there are folks involved in [the Benghazi attack] who were looking to target Americans from the start.” If he suspected this then why did he allow his administration to continue blaming the attack on the YouTube video? And why didn’t CBS News call him out on this when his comments in their interview with him, which they didn’t air until a month later, belie the administration’s YouTube narrative?
_________________
Someone in the media must demand answers. Until the media does its job to give us the Who What Where When and Why of this cover-up, there will be even less trust for this “cornerstone of our democracy” – if less trust and respect for the media is even possible today.  We sincerely want to be able to trust the media. We need to be able to trust them.  Their job is so important, and we appreciate all the good journalists in America.  Our troops fight to protect all our freedoms including the freedom of the press.
