Governor Palin to mainstream media: How about you quit making things up?

It’s said that a man’s word can affect the course of history. Certainly a man with a microphone can. Mainstream media lies. Without accountability their power can influence national debate, shift momentum, and destroy a person’s good name. All affecting history.

When one of their own repeats a lie for 12 years but is excused with the help of the media’s herd mentality, tragic distrust and despondency blankets our land. The veil is torn, however, with the revelation of exaggerated, self-centered falsehoods like NBC’s perpetual lie that belittled our soldiers and their truly courageous missions. The face of that network’s news lied about combat experiences in Iraq and then with false humility accepted the title of “war hero” while the press ignores, disrespects, and often destroys the good name of our true war heroes. To me, that’s like soiling sacred ground.

After having his lies exposed by troops who were there, this news anchor’s recent acknowledgement of “mistakenly” repeating his grandiose story for more than a decade makes this sad tale even worse because even in his explanation he is deceiving.

http://www.truthrevolt.org/…/brian-williams-misleads-viewer…

Brian Williams equated himself with our honorable vets and troops in combat boots with a made-up story of his courage and victorious return to the make-up chair strolling in his Bruno Maglis back to read his TelePrompTer’s twisted scripts, and we were forced to swallow it all. That was then. This is now, when we can thank God for new unconventional media that scatters the deceiving herd that would do this to America.

An enlightened public grows more confident everyday knowing we do not have to settle for mainstream garbage insulting our intelligence as it’s sold as “news”. The American public deserves so much better and it’s encouraging to see so many rise up and demand better. It’s why we’ve turned off the old, we turn on the new, and we’ll never look back.

Leftist media and their minions in politics tried for too long to fundamentally transform America with their shared assumption we would fall in line and bend our backs as they rode us with reins to control our individual sovereignty. America said enough is enough and we strengthened our spine so we could fight for freedom, sometimes requiring battles against our own leaders. Remember Hillary Clinton, always seeking the title of Commander in Chief, using a harrowing account of coming under enemy fire in Bosnia? (http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/…/sharyl-attkisson-brian-…/) Of course it didn’t happen. But a protecting press excused her with sympathetic descriptions of an exhausting schedule – evidently a schedule having more negative impact than that of her equally busy male competitors, because it was blamed for her dramatic lapse in recalling a near-death war zone experience that was really all made up. It goes without asking, would the press have done the same with others we can think of, had she or he “mistakenly” claimed taking on such danger in their drive to win an election?

Taking the Williams and Clinton examples, it also goes without asking, if they lie about things like this, what and who else do they lie about?

Be encouraged though, America! The demise of old media is a result of us saying, “No more.” It shows you what you can accomplish as a free and exceptional nation! We demand truth in reporting by shifting a market away from those refusing to give it. We demand adherence to our Constitution by taking back our government from those refusing to do it. We demand the fundamental restoration of America by refusing to bend to anyone dangerously transforming it.

Thank you for that! And thank the Lord for blessing us with the wisdom and wherewithal to get this done.

Jeffrey Lord: Sarah Palin is an American Original, like Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 5, 2015

Interesting article at The American Spectator:

Sarah Palin and the Sons of Liberty

The subversive notion of the common man.

By 2.3.15

Oh the humanity! Good heavens. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has a bad day and suddenly out comes this stream of ill-disguised venom going after the woman. She’s a this and a that and “we told you so.” Yada yada yada.

Get the smelling salts! Methinks all this commotion over Sarah Palin is really representative of something else.

Let’s go back to an event from last week that was presented courtesy of the History Channel. It was a show called Sons of Liberty, a three-parter that dramatized the events in Boston leading up to the Declaration of Independence. The show was riveting. Yes, the telling of this famous American tale was a trifle Hollywoodized. Growing up in Massachusetts and spending time tromping the Freedom Trail and other landmarks of the Revolution in Boston, I am pretty sure that Sam Adams was kind of your basic portly guy. Hardly the glamorous English actor Ben Barnes who portrayed him. (Although in fact Barnes did an excellent job capturing the Sam Adams spirit.)

But be that as it may, the series was spot on in the essence of its history. The British were a bunch of arrogant, haughty, bullying snobs and the good citizens of Boston detested them. Historian John C. Miller, writing in his 1943 classic Origins of the American Revolution, describes the relationship between the Brits and the Bostonians this way — in a fashion recalled by the momentary travails of Sarah Palin in Iowa.

[…]

This is another way of saying that Sam Adams and his Boston compadres were what we might now called “American Originals.” They simply could not have cared less what the elites of British society — or their American Tory allies in Boston and elsewhere in the colonies — thought of them.

[…]

Sam Adams — and indeed all of his revolutionary minded compatriots in Boston — were American Originals.

The mistake being made about Sarah Palin — it is a mistake all too common for American political elites of both parties — is to dismiss this key characteristic that is at the very core of America itself. The American Revolution is a story of American Originalism — and so too is the story of Sarah Palin. She is openly despised by elites because they see her as “subversive” in the same fashion as those Bostonians of long ago. As that passage from historian Miller’s 1943 classic illustrates, a key component of elitism is the terror that the “leveling, republican spirit” so in evidence in the Boston of the early and mid-1770s would spread far beyond Boston itself. In those days the fear was that this spirit would cross the Atlantic to Great Britain itself.

[…]

Transfer these sentiments to today’s America — and in this case to today’s Republican Party — and it is precisely the reason why so many liberal and GOP elites have such condescending disdain for Governor Palin. They simply cannot abide Sarah Palin because of her appeal to what Miller called back then the “common people”.

It is instructive to note that this is no accidental thing. Years after Sam Adams this treatment would be dished to those the American elites saw as representative of this “rare leveling principle.” American history is filled with names like Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan, all of whom were seen in their day as “levelers” of “persons of the best characters and best estates.” Today this treatment is aimed at Palin, but she’s not alone. The seething antipathy displayed by various elites in and out of the media or the GOP to Donald Trump is a version of this, dismissing Trump repeatedly as not “serious” when in fact a more serious potential candidate could not be conjured. A billionaire presidential candidate unafraid to spend his own money — and totally unafraid of taking on his own party’s establishment? That’s serious. So too is there a hint of this elitist reaction in the reception to Dr. Ben Carson, not to mention Senator Ted Cruz, the latter drawing almost foaming reactions from the GOP Establishment. As evidenced by the sudden rise of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in Iowa, Walker’s steadfastness in withstanding the liberal fusillades repeatedly sent his way for standing against the rich and powerful liberal elites of Wisconsin has sent his poll numbers inside the base skyrocketing.

One thing is for certain. It is foolish beyond measure for people to dismiss Governor Palin or any of these others as the 2016 political season moves ahead. They are not creatures of conventional wisdom. They couldn’t care less that they make the prognosticators and elites foam or that they had a bad speech day or bad anything else day. Each in their own way, they are modern versions of Sam Adams.

Governor Palin is exactly in the spirit of the Sons of Liberty. She is an American Original. What really drives the American elites of today crazy is that just like their British counterparts from the Boston of 1775, they see themselves as outnumbered by millions of American Originals.

And they are right.
