Republicans and Democrats belong to the same political party, fighting over power–not philosophy:
At a convention that included the likes of Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, Ann Coulter, Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney, Ron Paul was one of the few voices of reason and sanity. There is hope though–Ron Paul filled the entire convention hall at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, and some of his supporters were turned away after the room reached its capacity of 1,100 people. Ron Paul also won the straw poll, taking 31% of the vote.
With a new story from Stars and Stripes out today (see link below) about media manipulation, it seems like as good a time as any to review some examples of corporate media dishonesty:
Files Prove Pentagon is Profiling Reporters, Stars and Stripes
Journalists’ Work Examined Before Embeds, Stars and Stripes
Also, don’t forget about “Operation Mockingbird”
Here we have fake news (if this video is what it appears to be) from the 1991 Gulf War era:
Video News Releases (VNR’s) are a whole other dimension of fake news:
Here are some clips from a year or two ago about Pentagon dissemination of propaganda and talking points on the news:
Lets not forget about the fake FEMA conference from a couple of years age where the FEMA employees were pretending to be reporters:
If you pay taxes then you are paying for Michelle Obama’s servants, er, “assistants”.
Forget the fact that we are in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression. Forget that there is record national debt, and ignore the high unemployment and suffering amongst the common people. Because Michelle Obama needs 26 assistants at our expense–a bill that works out to more than $1.7 million dollars per year!
Remember, “First Lady” is not a political office–she is not entitled to any assistants. In fact, First Ladies of the past had to pay their assistants out of their own pockets! (I am not referring to Laura Bush here–she had a taxpayer-funded staff as well. But hers only cost us a “mere” $1+ million of wasted money per year.)
Apparently all of the new jobs from the economic stimulus packages were created inside of the White House.
Dr. Paul was on the D.L. Hughley show last night. I have to agree with D.L. Hughley, Ron Paul makes “too much sense to be a Republican” (or a Democrat).

Paul Joseph Watson writes the following at Infowars.com:
The Washington Post today reports on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.
“The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials,” reports the Post.
“Domestic emergency deployment may be “just the first example of a series of expansions in presidential and military authority,” or even an increase in domestic surveillance, said Anna Christensen of the ACLU’s National Security Project. And Cato Vice President Gene Healy warned of “a creeping militarization” of homeland security.”
As Alex Jones exposed back in the late 1990’s, U.S. troops have been training for this eventuality for a considerable amount of time. During numerous urban warfare drills that Jones attended and reported on, troops were trained to raid, arrest and imprison U.S. citizens in detention camps as well as taking over public buildings and running checkpoints. During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops…
In the short term, the domestic deployment of troops is likely aimed at combating likely civil unrest that will ensue after a complete economic collapse followed by a devastating period of hyperinflation.
This warning was again echoed a few days ago in a leaked internal memo from Citibank.
“The world is not going back to normal after the magnitude of what they have done. When the dust settles this will either work, and the money they have pushed into the system will feed through into an inflation shock,” wrote Tom Fitzpatrick, Citibank’s chief technical strategist.
The memo predicts “depression, civil disorder and possibly wars” as a fallout from an economic collapse that many say is on the horizon.
