Exclusive Videos: Franklin Graham & Sarah Palin Visit Haiti

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 15, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

These two videos, exclusively from Samaritan’s Purse, highlight the effort being done to help Haitians survive the effects, not only from the earthquake that happened nearly a year ago, but from a deadly outbreak of cholera.

The conditions in the island nation are dire. Haitians lack the most basic necessities of life. The conditions are worsened by political unrest and widespread violence.

Samaritan’s Purse is an organization that puts the money folks donate to good use. You can send money knowing it goes to help those in need.

We know money is tight, but if you have some money set aside for charity, and are looking for the best use of those dollars, we recommend Samaritan’s Purse and their efforts in Haiti. You can donate by going to Samaritan’s Purse’s website and choosing “Haiti.”

At this time of hope and charity, please help as much as you can by sending a donation, be it large or small, to Samaritan’s Purse.

Reporting On Sarah Palin In Haiti: The Corrupt Media Has Finally Jumped the Shark

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 15, 2010

Jumping the shark is an idiom used to denote the point in a television program’s history where the plot spins off into absurd storylines or unlikely characterizations. These changes were often the result of efforts to revive interest in a show whose audience had begun to decline.

By Gary P Jackson

From 1974 thru 1984 one of the most popular shows on television was Happy Days, a nostalgic look at the 1950s that starred Henry Winkler and Ron Howard, along with a strong supporting cast. Happy Days was one of those shows that everyone watched and pretty much everyone enjoyed. It was one of the rare shows that was so good it spawned a spin-off series using beloved characters from the show that was also a major hit.

Cindy Williams and Penny Marshall would star in another wildly popular show called Laverne and Shirley.

Happy Days is the kind of show that really becomes part of the culture, and can run pretty much forever in syndication. Sadly, the show ran into a brick wall and destroyed the integrity of the series. What radio personality Jon Hein described as “A defining moment when you know that your favorite television program has reached its peak. That instant that you know from now on…it’s all downhill.

In 1977 as part of a three episode opening, the show’s central characters visit Los Angeles. Henry Winkler’s character, “Fonzie,” has his bravery challenged. In what turned out to be better on paper than on TV, the script called for “The Fonz” to jump a captive shark. So here’s one of the most popular characters on TV, dressed in swimming trunks, and wearing his trademark black leather jacket, on a pair of water skis. It was as ridiculous as it sounds.

The show continued for six more seasons, but it was never the same after that. The writers had gone from believable situations to the ridiculous, and it effected the viewer’s perception of the show.

So significant was this to our culture, “jumping the shark” has become almost synonymous for failure. For doing something so ridiculous it destroys the credibility of everything one does going forward.

This leads us to 2010 and the corrupt lamestream media’s reporting on Sarah Palin. Now it’s been dishonest to the point of ridiculousness and absurdity for quite some time now, but I think Sarah’s trip to Haiti with Reverend Franklin Graham and Greta Van Susteren, on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse, is the final straw. The true “jump the shark” moment.

As usual the media got pretty much everything wrong in it’s reporting. In other words, lied. I use the word lie, because these so-called “journalists” are old hats at this, and know full well how these trips work. They made a choice to lie to their readers. A willful, knowing, and deliberate choice.

Stacy Drake wrote a hard hitting piece calling out the Associate Press’ Jonathan Katz for his completely dishonest reporting. You should read it here.

Stacy points out a serious problem. The media is corrupt and lies outright  to create the narrative they want you to believe, rather than the truth. While this is dangerous to the Republic and a direct assault on Freedom and Liberty, it’s not what you could call a “jump the shark” moment. No, that’s what we call “business as usual.

The true “jump the shark” moment would come from this: The media attempts to destroy Sarah’s street cred as an independent, hard working, everywoman constantly. They claim she can’t really shoot, though we watch her shoot quite well during her 8-part travelogue, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. They claim she can’t fish, even though we see her and her family pull in salmon by the hundreds, as well as watch her help haul in ginormous halibut on the open seas.

When all else fails, they go for the Diva angle. That’s easy for mindless liberals to understand. Of course, that theory has been blown all to hell by Sarah Palin’s Alaska as well. We’ve seen Sarah with no make-up, covered in fish slime and guts. Sweating from working out, and from climbing the face of a glacier. Of course, we’ve seen her dressed up as well, just as you would any other woman in real life.

Anyhow, since it’s easy, and hack “journalists” are lazy ….

This brings us to the trip to Haiti and the jumping of the shark.

As pointed out above, one of the folks who went on this trip was Greta Van Sustern. She has traveled with Franklin Graham before on these relief missions. She does a good job of reporting. Anyhow, bless her heart, Greta loves all things techie, and really loves blogging. She always posts photos when she is out and about. In the photo below you’ll notice Sarah and Todd, and you’ll see Bristol, second from the right, with a pony tail and scarf:

Now fast forward a bit.

The far left hate site, Palingates, came up with a photo of Sarah, posted it and of course sent it, and their latest conspiracy theory, around to their enablers in the so-called “straight” media. If you aren’t familiar with these loons, once based in France, now we believe in  Germany, they are insane Palin haters. And I DO mean insane! They are the ones who started the lie that Sarah’s son Trig is really Bristol’s baby, a lie they continue to peddle to this day. [and many media outlets give credence to]

This photo, and the corresponding lie, was picked up by the notoriously vile Huffington Post. HuffPo of course has strong ties with anti-Palin bloggers including those hand picked by Obama’s now Chief of Staff, Pete Rouse. They give space to all, and the so-called “respectable media” picks it up like it’s the gospel truth.

One would think HuffPo would be more interested in getting it’s own house in order rather than pushing nonsense on the American people. Just a few days ago, noted Palin hating Huffpo blogger, and Columbia professor, David Epstein was busted for having a long term incestuous relationship with his daughter. This is sick to say the least, but sadly typical of the “quality” of writers allowed to work for HuffPo, so long as they trash Sarah Palin. Stacy McCain has all of the sordid details on this sick bastard, Epstein, here.

The photo in question? Look for yourself.

Now bear in mind, Palingates is pushing the idea that Sarah, the Diva that she is, had a full staff with her, including a “hairdresser” to keep her looking good. They somehow divined this knowledge from studying this single photograph, and most likely some heavy narcotics intake. Without batting an eye, HuffPo and others, like the UK’s Daily Mail used this lunacy to paint Sarah as someone who cares more about how she looks in front of the cameras than the poor people of Haiti and their suffering.

Now it should worry the hell out of all Americans that media worldwide use sources like Palingates, a bunch of absolute loons that make Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones look credible, as “trusted sources.”

Looking at the photo what we REALLY see is Sarah standing there while her “hairdresser,” daughter Bristol, fixes something that is awry. We see mothers do this all of the time to their daughters when something like a hairpin comes lose, and well, obviously daughters return the favor. This doesn’t mean anyone is vain, it just means most folks want to look groomed and nice, and their loved ones want that as well.

The true jump the shark moment here is the fact the media absolutely knew this was Bristol, but chose to call her “Sarah’s hairdresser” and characterized what is little more that having some stray hairs put in their place, to “having her hair done.”

This is where the plot spins off into “absurd storylines or unlikely characterizations.” It proves the media is so desperate that it will actually publish photos showing one thing, and one group of people, and yet tell you something totally different is happening, and other people, not those in the photo are actually there. It would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so dangerous.

This sort of thing is destroying the Republic. A free nation cannot survive and be successful without a free and honest press. Something that is increasingly hard to find in the 21st century. The media does this with more people and more situations than Sarah Palin and her activities, of course. It’s just their lies are so blatant, and easily debunked, that it shows the desperation among the left to create a false reality about what is really happening in America.

For Sarah’s part, her message from Haiti is clear. She urges Americans to not forget Haiti. Damned shame the Palin hating progressives can’t get on board with that message, instead of the lunacy they spout.

For the corrupt media, and the progressive movement, from now on…it’s all downhill. They have truly jumped the shark.

Hair-Gate Pushers Use Haiti to Advance Their Anti-Palin Agenda

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 13, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

When Haiti is in dire need of humanitarian assistance, and when people like Rev. Franklin Graham, Governor Palin, and Greta Van Susteren are willing to travel there to offer such assistance, one would think the lamestream media would consider this, of all things, too important to include in their anti-Palin antics. But no. In addition to their to-be-expected obsessive preoccupations with tearing apart any and every move Governor Palin makes, now they’ve focused on her hair–again. They did this once before, stating she was so stressed it was falling out. They were wrong then, and they are wrong yet again.

The Associated Press accused her of bringing a hair dresser along with her to Haiti when, in fact, what they considered her dolling up for a photo-op was simply her daughter, Bristol, adjusting her mother’s hair clip.

The AP has now conceded that it was indeed Bristol and that they made a mistake, but come on. Perhaps they should stop acting like immature, deranged, ultra-partisans doing everything in their power to demonize–or rather divaize–Governor Palin, and focus instead on what really matters. She went with Rev. Graham to help, to be a blessing, to “love on” people who are going through an ordeal most of us, by the help of God, will never have to endure. Can these haters suppress their vitriol long enough to simply deal with that, rather than using Haiti’s situation to advance their own sick agenda?

Check out this screen shot, courtesy of Stacy Drake:

The publicizing of the picture then galvanized the Palin-haters who sit around daily looking for dirt on the Governor. Kristinn at Free Republic calls them out:

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin traveled to Haiti this weekend as a guest of the Rev. Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse to spotlight the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the earthquake and cholera-stricken Caribbean (half an) island nation. Instead she has found herself embroiled in a scandal, accused of bringing a hair stylist on the trip to make herself look good for the cameras and “photo-ops.”.

The Associated Press transmitted a photo from Haiti of Palin captioned, “Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, center, has her hair done during a visit to a cholera treatment center set up by the NGO Samaritan’s Purse in Cabaret, Haiti, Saturday Dec. 11, 2010. Palin arrived Saturday in Haiti as part of a brief humanitarian mission. Dieu Nalio Chery / AP”

That photo and caption set off rabid attacks on Palin from the Huffington Post, the U.K.’s Daily Mail and, of course, Palingates.

The photo does indeed show Sarah Palin standing with her husband Todd as a woman whose face is obscured uses two hands to fix the hair on the right side of Palin’s head.

However, one can observe that the woman is white, with her brown hair pulled back in a ponytail, wearing a white shirt with a bulky scarf and dark pants.

In other photos from Saturday, Todd and Sarah Palin’s white, brunette, eldest daughter Bristol, who accompanied her parents on the trip to Haiti, is wearing the exact same clothing and ponytail as the “hair stylist” in the AP photo.

That’s right, what the Palin-hating AP and others fail to report is that the “hair stylist” is Bristol Palin.

The AP photographer who sent the caption would have known that it was Bristol Palin, but by not mentioning her the AP was able to do a media hit on Palin but still be able to claim they told the “truth” with the caption.

Kristinn goes on to point out some captions the Palin-haters promoted:

The Daily Mail:

Ready for Her Close Up…Sarah Palin Lands in Haiti (where they don’t care what her hair looks like)

The Huffington Post (aka the Huff and Puff):

Reading the Pictures: Palin Does Haiti Cholera: How’s My Hair (and did AP lend a curl?)

The certifiably crazy at Palingates:

BREAKING NEWS: Palin Looks Good in Haiti

It’s unreal how facts don’t matter as long as they can spin a story to make Governor Palin look bad, even when it involves Samaritan Purse’s honorable work on behalf of Haitians in need.

Now the AP has walked back their claim and changed their original caption. Michael Calderone writes:

The AP photo caption now describes Palin as having “her hair fixed by her daughter Bristol.”

AP spokesman Paul Colford explained to The Cutline that it wasn’t “immediately clear” that the person photographed next to Palin was her daughter. “Once we figured out it was Bristol Palin,” he said, “we amended the caption accordingly.”

Not “immediately clear”? Well, that’s where checking facts comes in. Had they not been salivating like a rabid dog in their determination to bash a Palin, they might have taken the time to do that. But that malignant Palin Derangement Syndrome does dull the senses now, doesn’t it? Sickening!

Try as these people might to do Governor Palin dirty every time, they continue to show themselves to be who they really are: opposers of those who simply want to do good in this world.
