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.

Sarah Palin: This Is What Happens When Our Constitution Starts Shaking Her Fist

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 23, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin weighed in hard on Thursday over the despicable firing of Juan Williams by taxpayer funded NPR, calling on Congress to defund this house organ of the political left.

She’s also burning up the keys on her BlackBerry © as well, and tweeted this profound statement.

NPR & LSM: you’re shocked at public outrage over your censorship of Juan? This is what happens when our Constitution starts shaking her fist

Once again, our Constitution protects all speech, not just the speech we agree with. Agreeable speech really needs no protection, does it?

This entire episode is yet another shining example of the huge myth that says the left is “loving,” “accepting,” and “tolerant.” The left only tolerates that which is in total lock step (goose step?) with it’s radical agenda. Any deviation will be dealt with swiftly, and harshly.

My Oh My, POLITICO Sure Has A Lot Of Corrupt Journolisters On It’s Staff

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 31, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

It’s no secret that POLITICO is a biased news organization. The online polictical blog is as progressive as they come. Very agenda driven. In our reporting we have already addressed the fact that Journolist members are solidly entrenched inside POLITICO’s upper levels. Something Roger Simon, who calls the website home, tried to downplay.

John Nolte over at Big Journalism isn’t buying it, and has a simply marvelous retort:

You say MSM, I say Politico. You say corrupt, I say Politico.

Today, Politico’s Roger Simon was kind enough to almost scold JournoList for its lasting effect on his precious little profession of journalism. At one point, he and the scrupulously non-partisan Chuck “Fire Glenn Beck” Todd hold hands and commiserate over how this unfortunate JounoList thing is tarring “those of us who don’t practice activist journalism.” If Roger Simon wants to rebuild his precious little profession’s reputation, a good start might be asking his very own publisher some tough questions.

Politico might be an online publication, a part of the New Media, but when it comes to corrupted, left-wing arrogance they make the Washington Post look somewhat honest … somewhat. Part of the reason I reserve a special place in my heart to store up a unique resentment for all things Politico is due to the very fact that they practice their dark arts online. Like a toxic virus they spread over to the Internet where the right (by design) and the left (by accident) are trying to forever kill off the very thing Politico is — wolfish left-wing propagandists hidden in the sheeps’ clothing of “journalism.”

And yet these are the same bastards “journalists” who launched a smear attack on a private citizen for asking Their One a perfectly reasonable question, obsessed over Sarah Palin’s wardrobe (and yet ranked Obama being asked about his relationships with Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers as a 2008 top-ten ”media blunder“), and though they occasionally find Levi Johnston worthy of note, Department of Justice whistleblower, J. Christian Adams, remained a ghost up until and including Ben Smith’s factually challenged Nothing-To-See-Here gift to his embattled president.

Oh, and did you know that some of Politico’sjournalists were members of Ezra Klein’s now infamous JournoList, including Mike Allen, Lisa Lerer, and Mr. Ben “I-Got-Yer-Back-Barack” Smith?

And this little juicy nugget of fact raises a troubling question…

What Politico needs to disclose is exactly when their three employees joined JournoList, because now that we know what really was going on there, this Politico article reeks of a cover up.

Written by Michael Calderon in March of 2009 and titled “JournoList: Inside the echo chamber,” even at the time it was written, the thousand-plus worder ranked as another classic example of what Politico does best: write stories about why stories they don’t want covered aren’t worth covering. In other words, like Ben Smith’s Black Panther piece, this is how Politico spikes that which might damage the Leftist narrative.

While reading Calderon’s JournoList expose,’ you can practically hear the staged, self conscious yawn of a man trying to put across the false front that once again those crazy, paranoid right-wing conspiracy mongers have taken him away from oh-so important work to address this nothing-ness.

Calderon’s idea of “journalism” was to interview JournoList members such as Jeffrey Toobin, Eric Alterman,and Joe Klein, who each assure us in their own wrist-flicking way, Tell those silly right-wingers that no one’s pushing an agenda. In 2009 the piece was hilariously obvious in its biased and preordained objective to smoke-and-mirror away concerns about what Ezra’s little coven of left-wingers was up to. But reading it again in hindsight, it stinks to high heaven.

Deep, deep, deep in the article – long after the dull dutifulness of it all is supposed to kill your interest in clicking over to page two, Calderon finally gets around to admitting Politico’s Smith, Allen, and Lerer are members.

And herein lies Politico’s problem.

Now that it’s become crystal clear that at times JournoList was in fact a hotbed for left-wing ideologues to collude over how to kill stories that might hurt Obama, smear innocent conservatives as racist, coordinate lines of attack against Palin, and work directly with the Obama campaign, the question becomes:

What did Politico know and when did it know it?

Three Politico employees were members of JournoList, and yet in March of 2009, Politico published an article where JournoList members claimed nothing improper was going on there — which we now know wasn’t even close to the truth.

There’s only two explanations: Either Smith, Allen and Lerer weren’t JournoList members when this corrupt activity was taking place, or they were, and not only did they not disclose the improper activity but they allowed their employer to print a misleading story.

What did Politico know and when did it know it?

In a truly just world, all 400 plus members of Journolist would join the ranks of the chronically unemployed, but I digress.

Sadly, this is just more proof that it’s almost impossible to trust any supposed news source in this country. I know a lot of folks, myself included, tend to frequent blogs and newsers that mostly agreee with our point of view, but we also need fair and balanced news sources that play it straight. Just the facts, no matter who it helps, or hurts. No agenda, just facts. Until this happens, America is in big trouble.

When consuming news these days, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan: Trust, but verify. And go easy on the trust part, and heavy on the verify part.

Sarah Palin Talks Canadian Health Care, Baits The Drive-By Media, And They Get Caught Lying!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 8, 2010


If anyone thinks for one second that Sarah Palin is not a political genius, well, they need to think again!

One thing we all know for sure is the democrat party and the media (yes, yes, I know, same thing) hang on her ever word, every action. Sarah Palin can walk out her front door and it makes headlines. Sarah is so far into these people’s heads. She is living there rent free.

Better still, she knows it and is constantly using that to her advantage. Take her State of the Union address at the national Tea Party convention last month. She wrote three words on her hand, and ever since, people are asking her about it, and giving her an opportunity to talk about national security, energy independence, and the budget. Genius, pure genius.

We speculated, at the time, that it may have been on purpose. Whether it was or just Sarah being Sarah, we’ll never know, but one thing’s for sure, the media took the bait!

This newest deal, of course, is even more delicious, because the left wing media has already started caterwauling over the speech Sarah gave in Canada this weekend. They are taking the bait here as well and, as usual, the Obamacentric media gets it wrong.

The Washington Post, in it’s “44” blog, a blog that only exists to promote Barack Obama and his policies, writes this:

Palin says her family went to Canada for health care when she was young

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, a fierce opponent of Democratic health-care reform efforts who has said America under President Obama is headed toward socialism, told a Canadian audience her family used to go to Canada to get medical care when she was growing up.

My first five years of life we spent in Skagway, Alaska, right there by Whitehorse. Believe it or not — this was in the ’60s — we used to hustle on over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse. I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little kid accident thing and my parents had to put him on a train and rush him over to Whitehorse and I think, isn’t that kind of ironic now. Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada,” Palin said a speech Saturday night, according to the Calgary Herald.

Palin spoke before a paying audience of 1,200 in Calgary, with tickets costing between $150 and $200, the Medicine Hat News of Medicine Hat, Alberta, reported.

Whitehorse, in the Yukon, Canada, is north of Skagway.

Palin has also told an alternate version of the story that had her family traveling south by ferry to Juneau from Skagway for treatment of her brother’s burned foot, rather than to Canada, according to a 2007 report posted by the Skagway News.

Of course, the implication is that: “ooooh, Palin used ‘evil socialized medicine’ herself, but wants to deny America of the same fine treatment.”

This story line fails on many levels.

First of all, despite what WaPo and other dishonest media seek to portray, Canada didn’t have socialized medicine in the 1960’s. Oh sure, some provinces had experimented with it, Saskatchewan, for one, had some success even. But Canada didn’t have a national health program.

Another far left wing website TPM is also caught up in the lie:

Canada’s single-payer health care system, known as Medicare, was established in 1966. Its principal founders were Tommy Douglas, leader of the social-democratic New Democratic Party and former Premier of Saskatchewan, and Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson of the Liberal Party. It had previously been implemented at the provincial level in Saskatchewan in the early 1960s, under Douglas’s leadership.

At the time of Canadian Medicare’s passage, Palin was two years old.

You see, this is how the dishonest media works, they rely on the hope that you, the reader is stupid and/or lazy, and won’t do any investigating themselves.

If nothing else, Sarah Palin’s very existence and the media’s reaction to her, has shown us that we must fact check absolutely ever single story they produce, because chances are good they got it wrong.

Here’s the truth: The establishment of the Medical Care Act of 1966 allowed each province to set up their own “universal health care” programs, much like the states are free in America to do whatever they want regarding this sort of thing. The key word being allowed. (not required)

Of course, we know that universal care has been a disaster for every state that has tried it in the United States. Think Massachusetts.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s that Canada had any sort of nationwide “universal care” and it only covered in-hospital care. Doctor visits and other services weren’t covered.

It wasn’t until the Health Care Act of 1984 that Canada had what has come to be known as socialized medicine.

So Sarah and her family never “benefitted” from “socialized medicine.” On the contrary, they received the same kind of quality care we enjoy here in America.

Oh, and her brother’s treatment and the two “different” stories? Pretty simple, the family sought emergency care in Whitehorse and the follow up care was done in Alaska.

Once again, in their effort to smear Sarah Palin, the corrupt media proves just how worthless and lazy they are. Or maybe they know the truth about Canadian health care, but choose to lie about it to fool their mind numbed readers.

Hard to tell.

One thing’s for sure, with the progressive movement going down in flames, the media is grasping at absolutely anything to make it all stop. Unfortunately, for them, it’s not going to!

As for Sarah, and all of this idiotic reporting, talk show host extraordinaire Tammy Bruce, writing about the false rumor du jour, says it best:

Look, there has not been one ridiculous story/rumor/gossip about Palin and her family, starting with the 2008 campaign, that hasn’t been found false. So here’s the New Rule–if you hear something that sounds stupid, or ridiculous or makes it sound like Sarah Palin has somehow lost her mind, that’s your cue that it’s a false story, engineered to make it sound like, uh, Palin has lost her mind.

Read more here.

All I can say is: Nice try media, keep carrying the progressive’s water. You are making yourself more irrelevant every single day.

Meantime, Adrienne Ross reports that Sarah captivated the Canadian audience and spoke for roughly 40 minutes, without notes. Read Adrienne’s report here.

One last thing, it is this writer’s firm belief that when the history books are written, Sarah Palin will be included as one of America’s greatest and most influential leaders, but if Sarah does nothing more than continually exposing what a bunch of crooked liars the so-called “mainstream media” is, the lady will have provided a noble service to the nation.
