Media Histrionics Reaches Historic Proportions

May 6, 2010

Even before the ink of Gov. Jan Brewer’s signature dried on Arizona’s new immigration law, the Media has been engaged in a hysterical frenzy of misinformation, propaganda and outright deception.  The relentless Media assault on this law includes accusations of racism, bigotry, and even Nazism.  Just today a headline in the Phoenix New Times reads: “Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Reign of Terror Becomes State Policy…”  The one thing that I have not seen from any Media source is an honest attempt to educate America about what exactly is in the bill.  Why not read it for yourself: SB1070.  It is clear, concise, and, unlike the 2,700 page Obama-Care monstrosity, its only 16 pages.  You will see that the bill really does little more than make it a Arizona State crime to be in violation of already existing federal immigration law.  Hardly worth the Naomi Campbell type temper-tantrum that the Media is throwing.

Fortunately, there is some good that will come out of this excessive Media hysteria.  Just when you think the credibility of the Main Stream Media can’t sink any lower, it is precisely this kind of irresponsible over-reach that will erode it even further.  In a recent Pew Research study, Americans have a higher favorability rating of Fox News over the New York Times by a startling 55% to 29%.  Who would have thunk it… the “Glenn Beck School of Journalism” eclipses the “Walter Cronkite School of Journalism” when it comes to credibility!

Considering the extent of Media corruption, don’t expect any return to fairness, objectivity, and journalistic responsibility any time soon.  Although you can’t expect real ‘news’ from the Media anymore, it is a great source of amusement.  I’m waiting for stories to surface about Arizona building extermination centers out in the desert along the southern border ready to gas any and all Mexicans at any time.  Who cares about TRUTH as long as it makes a great story?  Forget about the Phoenix New Times “Reign of Terror,” I have a much better headline.  How about: “Arizona’s Auschwitz in the Sonoran Desert.”  Come on, New York Times, I’m giving you a great headline here, run with it.  I’m sure you have lots of skilled journalists like Jayson Blair that can make up a great story around this headline.

America Needs Another Paul Revere

May 2, 2010

Most Americans know the story of Paul Revere’s midnight ride of April 18, 1775.  How he stood vigil watch over Boston’s Old North Church awaiting the lamp signal of the anticipated British invasion: one if by land – two if by sea.  Those revolutionary patriots stood ready to defend America’s borders with their lives, whether attacked by land or by sea.

Now, with America’s borders under siege by BOTH land and sea we could use patriots like Paul Revere again.  Few issues are more clearly defined by our constitution than the federal government’s responsibility to protect and defend America’s border.  The land invasion over America’s border by illegal aliens is not new.  What is new, however, is that finally a border State (Arizona) has grown so disgusted with the federal government’s unwillingness to fulfill its constitutional responsibility that it passed a State law making it a State crime to be in violation of federal immigration law.  Hardly a radical concept.  Opponents of the law however were quick to spring into action, labeling the other side as: racists, nazis, red-necks, fascists, and bigots, among other things.  Within days of passing the law a Sheriff’s Deputy was shot near the Arizona – Mexico border by a gang of illegal Mexican narcotics smugglers.  You can decide whether this Sheriff’s Deputy who put his life at risk to defend America against the wave of illegal gun, drug and human smugglers is a “racist, nazi, red-neck, facist, bigot” or a true American patriot.

A second siege on America’s borders, this time from the sea, began on April 21, 2010 when an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast.  Initial news reports were quick to point out that any environmental impact of this tragedy was the responsibility of British Petroleum.  However, before being so quick to give the Obama Administration a pass on this disaster, one should remember that the Main Stream Media did not hand a similar pass to the Bush Administration during the hurricane Katrina disaster.  That in spite of the fact that it was then Louisiana Democrat Governor Kathleen Blanco who refused initial pleas from the Bush Administration to declare a National Disaster and coordinate all disaster relief efforts.  Also, it was New Orleans Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin who delayed issuing a State of Emergency and ordering evacuations until less than 24 hours before landfall.  It is also important to remember that regardless of the cause of any disaster it is the responsibility of the federal government, as proscribed by the Constitution, to protect and defend all costal waters and our national border.

For eight long days, from April 21 till April 29 the Obama Administration did virtually nothing to stem the environmental impact of this disaster.  Instead, while millions of gallons of oil gushed into the sea, the Obama Administration simply sat on its hands and abdicated its responsibility to protect America’s costal waters and border to a foreign oil company.  Not until a full week after the explosion did the Coast Guard first suggest burning off surface oil.

Under this administration America’s borders, both land and sea, are under siege like never before.  Don’t look to the White House for a defender of America’s borders.  There is no signal for “one if by land or two if by sea.”  There will be no freedom midnight ride…  There is no Paul Revere type American patriot in residence.
