Becoming the Media

Time to Change the Game

One of the standard laments of conservatives has been and remains the unconscionable bias of the mainstream media.  The bulk of so-called mainstream media outlets are so thoroughly in the tank for Obama, and indeed any leftist cause, that it has become impossible to discern between them and the party they shamelessly favor in their reporting.  The Benghazi story offers abundant evidence of this trend, but the truth is that the media has been skewed heavily in favor of the left for the whole of my life.  What some will have noted is that the character of the bias has changed, having become more thoroughly unabashed.  I believe this owes to the success of talk radio in the 1990s, led by Rush Limbaugh, but also by “new media” of which I suppose I must now admit I am a part.  The mainstream media is too inflexible to roll with the punches, and instead have become the televised and print versions of a leftist talk radio.  For years, they tried with virtually no success to compete in that format, and having failed, they’ve simply decided to make television and newspapers resemble talk radio.  Expert at manipulating imagery like all true propagandists, they’ve simply turned the nightly news into a thirty minute screed for leftists views.

Naturally, the problem is that they still claim the mantle of “objective journalism,” all while carrying out purely partisan scripting and editing.  Rather than complain about them, however, we have an option.  We can’t expect them to “play fair,” whatever that means, but we have it in us to make them mostly irrelevant.  If we want to defeat the left, we will need to vanquish their media as credible sources of information.  Each of you has it in your power to take part in that effort.

Every one of you is a reporter.  With the advent of social media, like Twitter and Facebook, there isn’t one of you who doesn’t have a story to tell, and there isn’t one of you who doesn’t have something to add to the discussion.  Tell it.  Add it.  Do it relentlessly.  Whether you write a small blog like this one, post a points you’d like to make on Facebook, send out emails, or “tweet” your opinion one-hundred-forty characters at a time, get to it.  The lame-stream media doesn’t want to talk about Benghazi?  Fine.  You talk about Benghazi, but do it frequently and relentlessly.  Throw in remarks where appropriate, and don’t be afraid to share.  You’d be surprised what sort of an effect that will have, not only on the political discourse in the country, but also on a media that wishes to be relevant most of all. They want to shape stories, but more, they try to shape what is the story.  Your staunch refusal to move on to other issues and stories will put an end to their migrations away from topics they’d rather see finished.

You might argue that you’re just one small voice in an endless sea of voices, but believe me, the power of one voice in the right moment and context cannot be overestimated.  Sometimes, it’s just the weight of one more voice pushing against the dam that will make it burst.  Sure, at the moment the media is using the storm on the East coast to drive the discussion away from Benghazi, and any number of issues, including the stunted economic growth numbers, but nothing says you must participate in their cover-ups.  To the contrary, you can have an impact simply by talking about the stories that you see as important, and if enough of you do, the media will rush back to you, because what they dare not permit is that they would become irrelevant in the water-cooler talk of the day.  It’s up to you.  Sure, the media can try to bury stories, but they can only bury them if nobody is talking about them.  You have the power to change that.  You do. If sunshine is the best disinfectant, then what we need is a good deal more of it.

While some might argue that we’d have been better off never knowing the full scale of the depravity of Bill Clinton, what would we remember about him if not for Drudge?  He’s now one of the biggest voices in the sea.  What is the legacy of Andrew Breitbart?  The real message is that you can be “media” too, as the concept of “mainstream media” loses all meaning.  There is no reason Obama should get away with it, whatever is happening with hurricane Sandy.  We can follow more than one story at a time, and we’re able to shape the messaging.  Speaking to the occupant of the oval office, the father of the Benghazi hero Tyrone Woods proclaimed:

“It’s better to die a hero than live a coward.”-Charles Woods

With the loss he’s suffered in mind, having the courage to speak out as he has, what do we have to fear?  Engage.  Get the message out there, whatever your particular message may be, and do so fearlessly. It’s our country, and it’s time we take it back from the media. We decide what will be discussed and when, and we shouldn’t permit the so-called “mainstream media” to tell us otherwise.

Killed By the Coward in the White House

Despicable

As more facts are revealed about the events in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11th, 2012, what is becoming increasingly obvious is that President Obama not only lied to the American people about the role of the now-infamous anti-Islam video, but also systematically covered-up the entire fiasco resulting in the deaths of Americans serving at the President’s direction in Libya.  The President and others in his administration are playing fast and loose with the facts, and sources now say that there were at least three requests for aid that were denied by the chain of command.  This is astonishing news, because what it directly implies is that the President’s statements about his first direction being to secure Americans was a bald-faced lie.  President Obama not only lied to the American people, but he and those acting at his direction abandoned Americans on the field of battle.  He flew off to Las Vegas, precisely to create an alibi.  The problem is, as President of the United States, the White House goes with you wherever you may be.  No, there will be no alibis this time, and this President must face the music, but if he is re-elected, he will not.  Any political black eye will come long after he begins his new term, if it materializes at all.  I can no longer refer to him as “President” Obama.  No American president has ever behaved so cravenly.  Re-elect him if you like, but he will be “the Coward” on the pages of this blog, for leaving Americans to be slaughtered, some who fought valiantly to save others, giving their lives for their countrymen.

One of the lies being pushed around is that he needed to “get to the bottom of this.”  That’s hogwash.  We now know that there were Predator drones in the air over the scene, at least one providing a live video feed of the situation on the ground.  More, we also know that the valiant Tyrone Woods – one of the Navy Seals killed in this action – maintained contact and was actually ordered to stand down in his efforts to save others before he ignored orders and ultimately gave his life in that pursuit.  His father, Charles Woods, has given several interviews, but on Friday night, he gave one to Sean Hannity, and during this interview, we learn a good deal about the character of Tyrone Woods as well as the  Marxist Coward.  You can play the audio of the phone interview below:

A number of the people in media are ignoring a central point about all of this, and I think it needs to be understood, because it demonstrates the absurdity of the Marxist Coward’s lies. There can be no way that Barack Obama was out of the loop.  There can be no way he ever believed this was the result of protests against a video.  That entire story was cooked up in the bowels of the Obama campaign.  You might ask how I know this with such certainty.

The reports of Friday morning that urgent requests for assistance were denied offers the first bit of evidence.  The damning bit of evidence came later in the day, when the CIA put out this statement:

“We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi.  Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.  In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night—and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades.”(emphasis added)

“No one at any level in the CIA.”  Notice it does not say “No one at any level.”  This qualification is the damning bit.  The CIA does not claim that requests for aids weren’t denied.  The statement merely claims nobody in the CIA denied them.  Once you realize this, it’s now a more important statement, because it doesn’t tell us who did deny such requests, but merely who did not. With that in mind, we must now ask: Who else would have the authority to deny a CIA request?  The State Department doesn’t have that authority, except insofar as the request might have been made of them, but it wasn’t.  They were asking for military support.  That means the Department of Defense.

Those of you who have spent any time around any government operation will know that a situation or request spanning different departments and agencies of this sort will always go all the way up the chain of command, before coming back down.  Unless there had been some sort of standing order to the DoD to provide support, there would have been, of necessity, a request up the chain through the CIA, landing on the desk of whom?  Ultimately, there is only one office that can then take such a request and issue orders to DoD for such support.  Only one.  And that office and its occupant were beating feet for Las Vegas on Air Force One.  Got it?

That’s right, a move like that can only happen with Presidential approval, either explicitly in advance, in the form of some blanket order, or as events unfold, in the certain terms and context of the moment.  Hillary Clinton could not deny such a request.  The Department of Defense couldn’t deny such a request.  Only the President of the United States, in this case, the Cowardly Marxist, could deny such a request, or refuse to act on it.  A President could ignore such a request until the event was over and the request mooted by the outcome, but that sort of request must pass through national command authority.

That’s right people.  You want a smoking gun?  You want proof that the cowardly Marxist-in-chief knew all along, and was hip-deep in this?  There it is.  The CIA says no one at any level in the CIA denied such requests. They did not say that there were no such requests, or if there were, what had been the ultimate disposition of such requests.  What you have here is a CIA statement intended to relieve its director of culpability.  Later, it will not be said that this had been a false statement.  No, the CIA is off the hook.  This statement shields the CIA so long as it’s a true statement, to the degree it says anything of use.  The value in this statement is what it leaves unsaid, and that is a whopper that lands in the lap of the lying Marxist coward who sporadically occupies the White House between fund-raising jaunts and Letterman appearances.

Ladies and gentlemen, the matter is clear, and the answer is simple: Either Barack Hussein Obama denied the request, or he shelved it until moot.  What you have in Obama is a professional liar, and his administration is staffed with people who exist to obfuscate, shade the truth, and outright lie when necessary to fulfill their political agenda.  Americans have died because of this rotten, miserable soul, and there’s a reason Tyrone Woods’ father sensed something akin to a dead fish in Obama’s handshake: Like all miserable cowards, he’s dead inside.  It is time for Barack Obama to go.  He has lost all valid claims to moral authority.  Our country can no longer afford him, and if he remains in office, we will never know the whole truth, and no justice will be had for Tyrone Woods, a young man who acted heroically in the face of his own chain of command’s cowardice.
