We have MSNBC's liar-in-chief Keith Olbermann purposely short-quoting and miss-representing President Bush's words for the benefit of the semi-literate and the intellectually challenged, for instance. Bush's out-of-context words:
Olbermann's purposely misleading characterization of those words:
indicating that our President was daring to tell us what to think.
Replace the word "unacceptable" with "ridiculous" or "ludicrous" and you get the drift of what the President was saying. Comparing either Americans or American leadership or American goals to the murderous nature, current leadership and goals of Islam is preposterous, or, as the President quite correctly put it, unacceptable, to anyone with half a brain. Olbermann either isn't smart enough to figure that out, or he hopes you are not smart enough to figure that out. So he's either a semi-literate dumb-ass or he's an evil deceiver; you decide.We have CNN "reporter" Bill Schneider practically foaming at the mouth because gas prices are dropping before the mid term elections, and implying that demonic "Big Oil" and diabolical "Republican Interests" are conspiring to lower prices for political reasons. The sole, solitary "expert" he refers to is a Nader disciple - you'll remember Ralph Nader as coming in second in the Nuttiest Lefty competition, behind Paul Ehrlich. The evidence shown: None. There is none. The SLIMC1 just makes the news up as it goes along. Go to the Eco-Nazism page to see how world oil prices are determined and how they've behaved over history; go to your TV or to your newspaper to see the apocalyptic fantasies of the SLIMC1 on the matter.
I'm still waiting to see which "reporter" will be first to point out that the lack of hurricanes so far this season is solely due to some Right Wing plot, and as soon as the mid-term election is over, Bush will probably call in the storms, and then personally blow up a whole lot more levees, just like he did last time.
We have CBS's Katie Couric assertingindicating that these are not America's enemies, but President Bush's enemies. Which puts Katie, CBS, the rest of the SLIMC1 and the Democratic Party solidly in Castro's Communist corner, where I always knew they belonged, and in close fellowship with all of Bush's other enemies. Note that she and they really don't see themselves as America's enemies, but rather as America's Revolutionary Reformers and eventual Socialist saviors.
We have the silent death of the Plamegate afair; the SLIMC1 would rather not talk about it, after having beaten it half to death over months and months of over-reporting it. Joe Wilson's flagrant lies about Bush's administration having it in for him and leaking his wife's name, which he had published on his website, although she wasn't really under cover and no crime was committed either way, but he and she lied and squealed and sued and did interviews and made money, and on, and on, and on. Rove did it; Libey did it; Cheney did it; the President is implicated; a prosecutor, who knew all along who did it, and that nothing illegal was done, still sought to put someone from the Republican camp in prison via the scrutinized and re-scrutinized detailed testimony on different dates to get someone into a political imperfect-memory-of-previous-testimony-perjury charge.
When it turns out that an assistant to mildly anti-Bush Collin Powell was the source of the non-criminal leak, well, then, of course, there's no story here. Let's just move on to other news. Some lives have been destroyed, but, hey, you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs, right? And let's just drop the original Wilson categorical lie regarding his own report, in that Iraq did indeed seek uranium just exactly as the President said; that's old news now, and there's lots of other anti-Bush stuff that needs more attention, quick, before the mid-term elections.The current Islamic uproar over the learned address of Benedict XVI, in German, to a gathering of German professors at a German University, points up mostly lies of omission and commission by most major representatives of the faith of Islam, lies which, for the most part, are strongly supported by the SLIMC1 . Of important note is the fact that none of the Moslems or news commentators who are publicly commenting on the matter have read the full context of what the Pope said, in German, to a scholarly audience of professors. It's highly doubtful that the world has read any full Arabic or English or any other translation of his remarks. Only one sentence has been translated and delivered up in a most inflammatory way.
This was a direct quote of a 14th century Byzantine Emperor, not a Pope, exactly as it exists in the historical record. Is no scholar ever to be allowed to read that particular historical quote out loud? How about reading it silently? Is history to be allowed to continue to exist, and if so, if we cannot refer to it, then why is history to be allowed to continue to exist? How about all the other history that is far, far more damning of Islam - are we to set ourselves the task of destroying or censoring true history just for the sake of Islamic super-sensitivity?
The typical media report referred to the Pope's gaffe or his insensitive remarks; they refer to his apology as actually applying to what he had quoted, rather than to his pain at how Islam had reacted to the quote. Islamic leaders and the media call for further apologies, with multiple Islamic calls for the Pope's death. The irony escapes the media completely. An innocent nun is murdered in Africa due to some Moslem(s) taking exception to the scholarly remarks of a Pope to an audience of professors. This is quite typical of Islam, yet, it is not reported that way; to the media, the Pope, and, by extension, the Church is at fault for the death of the nun.
Why? Well, because, as everybody knows, Islam is a religion of peace.
And, predictably, Moslem clerics are brought on live TV to tell us precisely that. Invariably, they call for further apologies from the Pope, because his apology is not enough, and they gently imply that all the issued death sentences are perhaps a bit too strong, and if the Pope will fall down in submission, he should be allowed to continue to live. One that I heard closed his remarks with the statement that the word Islam, in Arabic, translates to Peace in English. And I suppose that's probably true enough.
However, it refers to one of the two domains or houses of Islam, known as Dar Al-Islam, or the House Of Peace. We don't live there. All us un-believers live in the other domain, which is Dar Al-Harb, or, literally, the House Of War. Here, where we reign, Islam is not a religion of peace; it is a religion of war.
Look at the Islam and the Jews page for more information.
Completely lost on the media are the very simple questions regarding the Truth of the matter under consideration. Did the Emperor actually say those words. Did Mohammed actually call for conversion of the world by the sword. Does the Koran actually say that Moslems are to make war against us until no other religion exists except Islam in 2:139; 8:39; 9:29. These are all very simple yes-or-no questions.
Completely lost on Islam is the fact that the Pope is not afraid to die. Lots and lots of Popes have been murdered and martyred; why should this one be any different? He is ready. There will be other Popes. The Church cannot be destroyed. Even the gates of Hell will not prevail against it, for He is with us until the end of the age. These things I do not say on my own; they are written in The Book that Islam falsely claims to be "a people" of, but which, obviously, none of them have ever even read.And of course, we have the nearly daily repeated lie regarding how getting us into Iraq was exclusively Bush's plan, and due exclusively to his "illegal" and "deceptive" actions. Now, we have the words of virtually every single Democratic opponent of the Iraq war recommending the Iraq war in quite strong terms, many of them directly quoted in the Bush Lied People Died article, and yet the various members of the SLIMC1 will again and again refer to it as "Bush's War" or infer that Bush somehow got us into the Iraq war all on his own, with no outside help from anyone, especially any of them, or any other Democratic Party big shots.
Take your news with a grain of salt. You cannot depend on your network news or your big-time newspapers or even your local news to give you the straight, unbiased news, as real news. Everything you hear from the SLIMC1 has a Leftist spin on it, at least, and it may even be completely false. There is another agenda at work here.
Keep your eye on the Truth.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life.

The Purpose of this grouping of links is to provide a record of Mainstream Media lies, liars and how journalists are trained and paid by their employers to lie.
The Mainstream Media Pages
Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, every big name news anchor and reporter in American journalism lied, big, bold and proud, in full support of the Communist cause against America, all throughout the entire Vietnam War, and it has only gotten worse since then.
The Mainstream Media Pages: Soft Marxist Propaganda disguised as News. The Mainstream Media Pages show the linkage between Journalism, Politics and Marxism.
World War III is beginning, and the Big News is the "News"? The world is tumbling into global war, but Journalism is all atwitter about Brian Williams. Go figure.
The field of Journalism is infested with Professional Liars. Professional Liars predominate in the loftier positions of mainstream media.
How Cronkite and the SLIMC lost the Vietnam War for America. With the whole SLIMC overwhelmingly Marxist, the Reds couldn't possibly lose politically and publicly that which they couldn't possibly win militarily in the Vietnam war.
Old Traitors Never Die; They Don't Even Fade Away . . . Cronkite returns, to compare the new Iraq situation to his personal greatest achievement: the loss of the Vietnam War. Perhaps it's wishful thinking on his part.
Regarding the SLIMC Vs. the Truth Regarding the SLIMC (Secularist Liberal Intellectual Media Complex) and its treatment of the Truth
A closer look at the "Bush lied people died" Leftie flagrant categorical lie. If it is true that "Bush Lied, people died" then how does it follow that the UN, and all those countries, and all those Democrats, all said what Bush said, long before he ever said it?
Mainstream Media Lies and Liars just keep foaming up and building pressure. If you want to look at some really fascinating current socio-political phenomena, look at the current build-up of mainstream media lies and liars.
Right and Wrong, and what happens when we no longer recognize it. The difference between Right and Wrong is fixed forever; or, is it?
The Leftie-Liberal Beat Goes On: More anti-American lies reported as "News". The Democratic Party's yellow-bellied cut-and-runners would have you believe that United States Marines are wanton murderers of civilians.
Tet Lie Redux? "Cloning" the massive media lie about Vietnam's Tet Offensive. Tet Lie Redux: An epic, lopsided, monumental military victory was turned into a political defeat by our media's flagrant lies during the Vietnam War. Now, they're doing it again, this time in Iraq.
"The History Channel" repeats the flagrant categorical lies regarding Pius XII. Ho hum, heavy sigh, and here we go again. Once again, we see show-biz "Historians" bypassing actual historical documents in favor of purely anti-Catholic show-biz fictional works, for fun and profit.
What is, and why, this linkage between Fox News and the Playboy Empire? Should prominent men in the public eye work to strengthen our common Western moral ethos, or promote the new and more random, directionless, relativistic moral standard?
Of Illegal Aliens Vs the Berlin Wall, and Sovereignty Vs the Global Village. Marxism - or, if you will, Social Darwinism - presents the notion of Social Evolution, and predicts a final end of national sovereignty, & a perfect, government-less, Global Village; Heaven on Earth.
The greatest tool of the Leftist MSM is the tightly-controlled "opinion poll." Leftist "Spin" is glaringly obvious in mainstream news reporting today. But that Spin is greatly magnified and enhanced through the use of the carefully crafted public opinion poll.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Three Fatal Oversights of the Top Conservative Cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
