“progressive” Media Spin Continues Unabated

June 25, 2012

Consistent with a clear pattern of widespread institutionalized “progressive” left media bias, Yahoo News once again uses headlines to promote their version of the news.  They report that whoever wins the presidency in November will have negligible impact on the economy.

The “news headline” reads:

Poll: Election winner won’t impact economy much.

http://news.yahoo.com/poll-election-winner-wont-impact-economy-much-073536119–finance.html

The story reports on results of a new Associated Press-GfK poll, which shows that half of America says it will not matter which presidential candidate, either barack obama or Mitt Romney wins the White House.  The chances of the winner having much of an impact on jobs creation are seen as slim to none.

Anecdotal testimony is then provided…from a retired policeman, a pre-school teacher and a mechanical engineer who backs obama.

Are not police officers and teachers members of unions, which are strong Democratic supporters?  Were not the police and teacher unions heavily invested, involved and outspoken in favor of Democrats during the recent, hotly contested, highly partisan Governor’s recall election in Wisconsin?  What reason is there then to conclude that this poll sampling and accompanying anecdotal evidence are not tainted by a pre-selected demographic and therefore nothing more than “progressive” spin, intended to create a false impression from which readers are subliminally “nudged” towards reaching a predetermined conclusion?

The telling part of the story that indicates the real problem is largely overshadowed by the way it is lumped in with tainted, biased anecdotal “evidence”:

“Years of disappointing economic news following the 2007-2009 recession have deflated American optimism. And worries about financial troubles in Europe and congressional gridlock at home hang over the future.”

Years of disappointing economic news following the recession are the result of failed policies enacted by an extremely partisan “progressive” Democratic House, Senate and Chief Executive who were dedicated to enacting their radical fringe leftist agenda intended to spur rapid government sector growth while taking over and imposing regulatory controls upon huge portions of the private sector economy.

Financial troubles in Europe can be attributed to decades spent following the same big government tax and spend policies American “progressives” are misrepresenting to the United States as the “solution” to problems caused by big government tax and spend policies.  Crushing the private sector with regulations and taxes, while spending the tax revenues on “entitlement” programs or benefits and salaries for government employees has yet to usher in true European prosperity.  Today’s evidence is quite to the contrary.

Congressional gridlock at home is a consequence of American voters deciding in the 2010 midterm election that having unchecked out of control “progressives” running Washington DC was counter to the nation’s best interests.

A Republican President, working with Republican majorities in the House and the Senate will not be experiencing the gridlock caused by obama’s disastrous, ideologically driven, highly partisan, continuously inflexible “it’s my way or the highway” governing style.

There is pent up anticipation that after years of anti-business, anti-energy, anti-growth, “progressive” policies, resounding Republican victories in November’s races will trigger a bull market on Wall Street, as well as spur business investment and hiring.

Naturally, for card carrying members of the “progressive” Party Pravda, whose primary objective is re-election of the current White House occupant, the tainted poll results of a mere 1,007 justifies influencing the decisions of thousands of online readers with headlines based on “progressive” spin masked by highly questionable anecdotal evidence.

The Age Old Power Struggle: Chapter 2012

June 25, 2012

A Muslim cleric introduced Egypt’s new President, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi by saying: Our Capital ‘shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing’.  For his part, Morsi pronounced: Abroad women are ‘free,’ but not here.

These types of proclamations do not bode well for Egyptian minorities, which includes members of the Coptic Church community, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s population. Despite Morsi campaign spokesman Gehad el-Haddad’s assurances that Morsi would work to be “president for all Egyptians”, Coptics worry how Morsi’s election might result in a restriction of their personal freedoms.

Regardless of joyous proclamations by Mosi supporters, the newly elected president did not receive enough support to consider his election a mandate.  Ahmed Shafik, former prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million. Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote.  A vote as close as this portrays the presence of a divided electorate.

New Democracy (ND) the conservative party edged out the leftist Syriza party, achieving victory in Greece’s parliamentary elections. The winning margin for ND was less than 3 points. In Greece, as in Egypt, the vote was so close it indicates the presence of a divided people.

In France, Socialists won the National Assembly.  Final results showed the Socialist Party won 280 seats.  Two closely allied parties gained 34 seats, giving the Socialist bloc 314 seats.  The leftist Green Party won 17 seats and the far-left Left Front collected 10.  The Socialist Party now enjoys a lock on French politics.

Newly elected President Hollande’s domestic mandate will allow him push back on budget cuts being demanded by Germany.  Greece and other indebted countries say budget cuts are deepening the Eurozone’s recession by suffocating growth.  Clearly, there is division within the European Union.

Meanwhile in the United States, largely ignoring the historical lessons of American economic success, obama continues to call for bottom up economics.  This not so newly minted campaign tact is but one element of his overall class warfare election strategy.

Desperate for cash to combat GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s growing money juggernaut, obama’s campaign is asking his supporters to tell wedding guests to donate to his campaign rather than give gifts to the newlyweds.  The campaign is also turning to overseas American ex-patriots, seeking cash.

There is a new strategy to inflate the economy on obama’s behalf by Ben Bernanke at the Federal Reserve Bank.  obama and other Democrats are coordinating attacks on Romney with the American media, which completely flies in the face of a free press dutifully reporting facts to the electorate so as to facilitate voters being equipped with the knowledge necessary to make informed political decisions.

Bill Maher, $1 million obama campaign donor and known airwaves extremist, continued to spew hollow, hateful, leftist fringe rhetoric by spouting: Conservatism is not an ideology, ‘It’s just about being a dick’.   Joy Behar, one of Maher’s many fellow “progressive” extremists who populate Hollywood, felt compelled to chime in with “Gay Conservatives only think with their penises”.

Whatever happened to the angst, dismay and regret over harsh partisan rhetoric, so in vogue among “progressives” in the aftermath of the Gabby Gifford shooting?

In light of the Tea Party led midterm election landslide in 2010 and the Tea Party fed Scott Walker victory in Wisconsin’s recall election, it is quite appropriate to observe that, like much of the world, the population of United States is divided.

The division in America is distinctly between those who wish to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” and those who wish to restore the country to its Constitutional roots.

The Constitution established a small government featuring division of powers, protection of individual liberties and fostering a free market economic system uninhibited by the shackles of an overbearing central government.  Since the early 20th Century “progressive” politicians have incrementally increased prohibitive regulatory controls while intruding upon individual liberties by imposing “progressive” taxation used to fuel the growth of big government ”entitlement” programs and bloated federal bureaucracies that far exceed the powers delineated to the federal government by the United States Constitution.

As they participate in Chapter 2012 of the age old power struggle between tyranny and freedom, the choice is clear for American voters.  To further enable unconstitutional usurpation of powers by disciples of Marx and Alinsky wishing to dismantle and eliminate the fundamental political, and socioeconomic structure of the United States, or to elect representatives who will insist upon restoring the Constitutional Republic envisioned by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and America’s founding patriots.
