David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, has a really important demand which requires everyone’s immediate attention:
"Sarah Palin has made serious accusations of journalistic malfeasance. Either Palin accurately described the tapes, or she did not. America’s news consumers need to know the truth about these serious accusations. The public in Alaska needs to know the truth so they are fully and correctly informed before they cast their ballots Tuesday. Palin has a responsibility to release the full, unedited tapes publicly and to all media."Now David Brock is not stupid. He knows that there are no "tapes" to release. The recording was left on the voicemail of a Joe Miller staffer, who has released the entire voicemail. Even Greg Sargent has given up on the "release the tapes" meme.
As William Jacobson points out:
There is nothing Sarah Palin could release even if she wanted to. The recording speaks for itself and shows that the CBS affiliate in Alaska was hoping to find "registered sex offenders" at a Joe Miller rally or a fight, so that it could report that angle as the Joe Miller story of the day.
Is this the best Media Matters, with all its Soros money, can do?
He issues the challenge here:
I have a challenge, as well:
"Legal Insurrection Blog challenges David Brock to refuse to accept donations to Media Matters from currency manipulators and speculators who want to undermine our national sovereignty."
Why are they asking Palin anyway? Breitbart, not Palin, broke this story:
On Sunday Big Journalism broke the troubling KTVA (Anchorage) voicemail story that showed reporters and producers plotting how to smear GOP candidate Joe Miller.”
Palin’s just out there as Alaska’s most famous resident, speaking through the media (eeevil Fox News) of the media, condemning the Alaskan station, accurately calling the reporters “corrupt bastards”.
But hey, I have a challenge too!;
To demonstrate that Media Matters is not just a bought-and-paid-for propaganda arm for George Soros, the Center for American Progress, Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party, Media Matters should demand that the L.A. Times release the allegedly incriminating tapes of Barack Obama allegedly praising alleged PLO spokesperson Rashid Khalidi, and allegedly saying:
"Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" plus there’s been "genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.
Take that million Soros bucks and put firm, unrelenting, pressure on the L.A. Times, Mr. Brock. Once these tapes are released I won’t have to keep saying “allegedly”. Indeed, if these alleged rumors are false, and if Media Matters mounts a successful challenge to the L.A. Times, these tapes could actually vindicate Obama and quell the disturbing rumors which have been circulating since 2008. Sunlight. Disinfectant. And all that. In the event that these alleged rumors are false, I (and hundreds of other bloggers, no doubt) will be happy to correct the records. To borrow a phrase from Bill O’Reilly, “What say you?”

Ha! I know it’s not fair to take this quote out of context, but the left does this all the time, so why not have some fun with it? You can be sure that if a conservative pundit had said something similar about Pelosi or Reid that the pantywaists at Media Matters would be all over it. O’Donnell said this as part of a discussion with Chris Matthews and others on what strategies Obama will employ once the Republicans take the House of Representatives. Will he govern like Clinton, yadda yadda yadda?
I know she leans left, but I’m pretty sure she was being sarcastic. She’s projecting how Obama views them. Right? I report, you decide. Via newsbusters:
O’DONNELL: I think you have gridlock. I think you have gridlock, and that it’s more of a Truman sort of model, and that President Obama then runs against sort of this obstructionist Republican Congress led by these evil men like Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.
Another notable quote (which supports the idea that O’Donnell was expressing how she thinks Obama feels, not how she feels):
JOHN HEILEMANN, NEW YORK MAGAZINE: I just people forget that there was another part of the Clinton strategy. Yes, he cooperated with Republicans on certain very big things, but the other part was he demonized them like crazy….

I smell desperation. All my liberal facebook friends think this is brilliant.
Let’s see now. Obama has spent the past two years blaming Bush for everything (when he’s not blaming us for being too stupid or scared to understand his brilliant messaging). Even Barney Frank is blaming Bush. Obama and the Dems are losing support faster than a pricked balloon loses air. We’ll know exactly how much support they’ve lost after Election Day. It can’t have anything to do with his policies, it must be because he’s a black man! Like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi! Oh wait….

UPDATE: Fake facebook page fails to flip governor’s office to Barnes. The AJC reports –
Nathan Deal led a historic Republican sweep of Georgia on Tuesday, soundly defeating Democrat Roy Barnes to become Georgia’s next governor.
Paging Roy Barnes…
Let me begin by saying that I supported Karen Handel for Governor. I liked her executive experience as Secretary of State where she did a superb job bringing integrity to the voter rolls, and valiantly fought back against Eric Holder of Obama’s corrupt D.O.J. I thought she ran a very impressive, professional campaign, and didn’t like the fact that ethics charges haunted Deal’s campaign. That being said, I voted for Deal for Governor.
This ad from a group calling themselves “Republicans Against Deal” which kept popping up at Hot Air piqued my curiosity:
Clearly we are meant to believe that he’s a total perv who wears crooked glasses (a clever subliminal message that he’s a kook and a crook?). What’s this gay tabloid stuff about? A May 23rd story in the Savannah Morning News headlined, “POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Gay-rights charges nag Handel”) puts that mystery to rest. During the primary Deal alleged that Handel was soft on traditional values and was supported by the Log Cabin Republicans, an assertion that was found in a now defunct “gay tabloid”, The Southern Voice. Ergo, Deal is a perv who reads gay tabloids.
Moving along, if one Googles “Republicans against Deal” there is no organizational info available. Just this fake facebook page (which the ad also directs to) that pretends to have 288,516 friends, including Sarah Palin, Erick Erickson of RedState, and Governor Sonny Perdue – all Republicans we are meant to believe are “against Nathan Deal”.
On the right one see’s fake claims (OMG!! Check out what these REPUBLICANS are saying about Nathan Deal!). One is from a “spokesman” for Sonny Perdue, who in reality supports Deal and calls him a “friend” (I know that for a fact because I got a robocall from Sonny). That would be a real friend, not a fake facebook friend.
Another faux endorser? Eric Erickson of RedState who while lukewarm on Deal nevertheless joins the team to support his candidacy here:
Wednesday, August 11th at 11:19AM EDT
While we can question the wisdom of putting Nathan Deal up against Roy Barnes, that’s what Republicans decided in Georgia last night and we’ll respect their decision.
The Deal campaign ran a great runoff. The Handel camp ran a textbook runoff race, but came up about 2500 votes short.
This morning I’m told Karen Handel will be conceding the race. Republicans will now unite to beat Roy Barnes.
Explore the page and you’ll see that it also includes fake comments from the fake friends list. The only real thing are the bios of the fake endorsers.
I don’t know who this group is. There is no info at the bottom of the fake facebook page. One is probably meant to believe that Karen Handel is behind this but I reject that possibility out of hand. I’ll take a wild guess and say “Roy Barnes campaign”; a second choice would be the DNC or some group in George Soros’ web. Crazy you say? Perhaps, but having a Republican governor is very important when it comes to congressional districting, so it’s not beyond the realm of possibility to think some shadowy DNC-affiliated national group is behind this fakery.
And I’m not a lawyer but it seems obvious that this is a blatant copyright infringement of Facebook. Other than tracking them down at the sites they advertise on, which is going to be difficult since it is a Google ad, I don’t know how one finds these fly-by-night political operatives. No doubt that in the new world of social media, this sort of fakery will be common. Time will tell whether or not facebook goes after these groups.
We know that Democrats think voters who don’t vote for Dems are stupid (and crazy) , and are thus stupid enough to fall for this fakery, but we’ll show them who the real dunces when the election results come in on November 2nd, won’t we now!
–Aw, these Barnes supporters are so clevah! This comment from “Nathan Steal” showed up in my spam comments:
-Nathan Deal’s campaign has been alerted to this fraud. I called there and they said some gentleman had told them about it this morning.
-Revealed: Roy Barnes is a weasel. Other dirty tricks revealed here (“When campaign ads go too far”). Ironically the same despicable ads this blog post talks about run at their website, on the right hand side and as a banner ad at the bottom. It’s like a virus that can’t be stopped.
– Roy “The Weasel” Barnes used fake news footage in anti-Deal ads:
ATHENS, Ga. — Democrat Roy Barnes, under fire for airing TV commercials against Republican Nathan Deal that consist of faked news video concocted to make Deal look bad, late Wednesday afternoon accused Deal of going beyond the standard attacks that one expects in a fierce campaign for governor, and trying to fool voters himself — by creating fake news-type coverage in a TV commercial that he’s running against Barnes.
– Gawd. Now I’m being assaulted with the Deal thinks sexual assault and domestic violence is fake or something web ad. This ad actually links to a real facebook page (“Women against Deal”) and unlike the other ad, this says it’s paid for by Roy 2010, inc. I’m not going to link to the facebook page because it’s so pathetic. You can find it if your really must see this typical Dem operative sleaze operation. I’ll give you a screenshot though:

Sheesh. Now I know why some Nanny Staters want to ban Happy Meals. Apparently kids drive their bikes to McDonalds and purchase the food without any parental supervision, and the parent’s can’t be held responsible for their child’s actions.
Citing cases dating back as far as 1928, a judge has ruled that a young girl accused of running down an elderly woman while racing a bicycle with training wheels on a Manhattan sidewalk two years ago can be sued for negligence…
The suit that Justice Wooten allowed to proceed claims that in April 2009, Juliet Breitman and Jacob Kohn, who were both 4, were racing their bicycles, under the supervision of their mothers, Dana Breitman and Rachel Kohn, on the sidewalk of a building on East 52nd Street. At some point in the race, they struck an 87-year-old woman named Claire Menagh, who was walking in front of the building and, according to the complaint, was “seriously and severely injured,” suffering a hip fracture that required surgery. She died three months later. …
It’s not enough that the poor elderly woman died. Let’s make this a double tragedy and ruin the lives of the improperly supervised children too:
[Attorney] Mr. Tyrie had also argued that Juliet should not be held liable because her mother was present; Justice Wooten disagreed.
“A parent’s presence alone does not give a reasonable child carte blanche to engage in risky behavior such as running across a street,” the judge wrote. He added that any “reasonably prudent child,” who presumably has been told to look both ways before crossing a street, should know that dashing out without looking is dangerous, with or without a parent there. The crucial factor is whether the parent encourages the risky behavior; if so, the child should not be held accountable.
In Ms. Menagh’s case, however, there was nothing to indicate that Juliet’s mother “had any active role in the alleged incident, only that the mother was ‘supervising,’ a term that is too vague to hold meaning here,” he wrote. He concluded that there was no evidence of Juliet’s “lack of intelligence or maturity” or anything to “indicate that another child of similar age and capacity under the circumstances could not have reasonably appreciated the danger of riding a bicycle into an elderly woman.”
I’m all for raising responsible, well-trained children, but this is ridiculous. Moreover, if the mother “had no active role”, by adding the child to the case it seems to me that the chance that the elderly victim’s estate will receive damages is actually diminished, so everyone loses. Other than this idiot judge, I can’t imagine that any judge or jury will buy the argument that it’s the child’s fault.
UPDATE: Jammie Wearing Fool is on this, and reveals that the “nitwit” judge was appointed by NY’s doltish Governor, David Paterson.

From the Associated Press:
[Obama] said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."
So, in one short, revealing paragraph Massa Barack manages to:
1. Use the sort of violent imagery that Sarah Palin was excoriated for when she used the word, “reload”.
2. Harken back to his Joe the Plumber days of wealth-redistribution schemes by using the metaphor of having middle class families move to the front seat.
3. Treat Republicans like Rosa Parks, insisting that we have to ride in the back of the bus.
Meanwhile, in keeping with his much-heralded post-racial tone, Massa Obama is stirring the pot, pleading with prospective Latino voters to “punish their enemies”. No word on whether Barack, the Jim Crow Democrat, will demand that we second class citizens have separate water coolers, slurpee or latte stands.

Yesterday we learned that potatoes are soon to be verboten for some, according to this story from the Associated Press –
Potato growers are fighting back against efforts to ban or limit potatoes in federal child nutrition programs, arguing the tuber is loaded with potassium and vitamin C and shouldn’t be considered junk food.
..the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences, recommended that the U.S. Department of Agriculture stop participants of the federal Women, Infants and Children program, known as WIC, from buying potatoes with federal dollars. The institute also called for the USDA-backed school lunch program to limit use of potatoes.
Under an interim rule, the USDA agreed to bar WIC participants from buying potatoes with their federal dollars. Potatoes are the only vegetable not allowed. Next year, the agency will roll out a final rule on the WIC program, which last year served 9.3 million children and pregnant and breast-feeding women considered at risk for malnutrition.
This is a singularly stupid decision. But imagine my surprise to see these photos of America’s Food Nanny, er, First Lady, showing off prized sweet potatoes grown in the fabled White House Garden!
At one point, she held up one of the larger orange-colored spuds and said: "This can feed an army." Before the harvesting began, she said she and daughters, Malia, 11, and Sasha, 8, already had helped themselves to some sweet potatoes.
This can feed the Obama family, and an army, but poor mothers on the WIC program and those peons who attend public schools will not be permitted to enjoy these nutritious vegetables.
The government relied on the advice of the National Academy of Sciences to demonize a perfectly healthy food, but ironically this evil vegetable was touted in 2004 as the best way for Americans to increase their potassium intake – something which the National Academy of Sciences recommended that all Americans do to improve their health:
The National Academy of Sciences recently increased the recommended intake for potassium from 3,500 mg to 4,700 mg per day. This increase is largely based on evidence of potassium’s role in controlling hypertension and preventing stroke – conditions that, according to the American Heart Association, affect more than 50 million or one in four Americans.
The challenge now lies in educating Americans about what foods are good sources of this vital mineral. It might surprise some to learn that there’s a delicious way to boost potassium intake: Eat more potatoes! The potato actually ranks highest in potassium per serving among the 20 best-selling fruits and vegetables in the United States (ACNielsen).
And yes, I realize that sweet potatoes aren’t exactly the same thing as the common spud, but they are close enough to illustrate the stupidity and hypocrisy of the Food Police. And begs the question (in my best Lefty voice): Why does the Obama Administration hate poor women and their children?

The persecution of Sarah Palin continues. I found this lovely piece of graphic art/propaganda via a Facebook Friend:
The exhibit is called “Art is a weapon!”. Will they be serving
Mooseburgers Lady Liberty Burgers, or is this a Vegan only event? I wish I still lived in New York City so I could attend the slide show and report back on it (and the audience reception). Would it be better to remain incognito or don a “Don’t Tread on Me” t-shirt? (Saturday, October 23rd should any curious readers live in the vicinity)!
I wish I could say that my facebook friend is stupid or ignorant. He’s not. He’s actually brilliant, but like so many in his circle (which I would categorize as upper-class/Boho/elite) he has been indoctrinated into the sort of Leftist groupthink that manages to make dullards out of geniuses.
I wish I could say that these artists are merely college sophomores peddling their sophomoric ideas. But it turns out that while they call themselves “subversives” they are solidly in the ‘mainstream’ of the art world (and no doubt I’m a yahoo for not being familiar with their work). Here are the facebook autobiographies of the artists (emphasis mine):
Subversive visions of two Native New Yorkers will be projected to live music, as Eric Drooker explores his years as a street artist in Manhattan, creating graphic novels, paintings, and his infiltration of the mainstream.
Best known for his New Yorker covers, Drooker recently designed the animation for the feature film, HOWL.
Joining Drooker will be Zina Saunders, another NY native, whose work can be seen in national magazines and newspapers like Mother Jones (current cover!), The New York Times, The Progressive (current cover!), The Nation, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic.
Here is Eric Drooker’s website, with his prolific New Yorker portfolio. He’s clearly a very talented artist. Meanwhile, his colleague, Zina Saunders (who ironically, was hired by the WSJ to do a very nice portrait of Andrew Breitbart) really has a thing for Sarah Palin (don’t miss the animated version at her website):
“A confused & Frightened citizenry votes against its own self-interest”? “They say they’re taking back America but really they’re taking your money!!!”
Really? We’re taking their money?!! How does that work exactly, Zina? I wish you’d confer with your comrades at Mother Jones and get back to me with a precise explanation.
Ms. Saunders repeatedly uses this cartoonish “Republicans are monsters theme”. McCain is Frankenstein’s monster! Sharon Angle wants to blow things up! (Er, shouldn’t that be Bill Ayers in that illustration?). Gitmo is a torture chamber!
But back to Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin wants to slaughter Liberty! She wants to take away our freedom! She’s an alien who wants to crush the middle class! This is so demonstrably wrong that it would be amusing if not for the fact that this portrayal of Governor Palin as a monster is so widespread, and so unquestioningly accepted, that it’s actually, dare I say, ‘dangerous’. Yep, it’s dangerous because history has shown time and again that Lenin was right when he said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth”. And sadly these artists are not merely being paid to spread someone else’s propaganda messages. They are clearly true believers.

Obama shows off Hanuman monkey god.
"I would have become a Hare Krishna, but I didn’t want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why, because I’m Italian and I love meatballs."
Om, I mean, um, a quick scan of the internets reveals that Barack Obama carried a Hanuman trinket with him for “good luck” during the 2008 campaign. The text accompanying a Time Magazine photo reveals:
Amongst the things that Barack Obama carries for good luck are a bracelet belonging to a soldier deployed in Iraq, a gamblers lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and a tiny Madonna and child.
This was welcome news to the worldwide Hindu community, who rejoiced and sent a large monkey-god sculpture to Obama as a token of their appreciation.
"We have heard that he carries a small monkey charm in his pocket. So he is a devotee of Hanuman. That’s why we want to present him with this idol," he said.
Mr Bhama and his friends have also invited Carolyn Sauvage-Mar, chairwoman of the group, Democrats Abroad-India, to a meeting they are holding on Tuesday to pray for Mr Obama’s success.
The Delhi-based group registers voters, sponsors events and occasionally hosts Democratic Party leaders visiting India.
No word as to whether this voter registration group is affiliated with International ACORN, but I digress.
Reuters has video of this story:
And Al Gore’s Current TV was on it with the headline:
Obama turns to Hanuman (Hindu Monkey God) for blessing
Elsewhere, Gaura Vani, a Hare Krishna musician, performed in honor of Barack:
…to a jubilantly dancing crowd at the Church of the Holy City in Washington, D.C., who had gathered to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration.
Alas, rumors that Obama chanted Hare Krishna cannot be verified because the video is no longer available “due to a copyright claim from Sony ASV publishing”. No doubt Bill Maher is sorely disappointed that he can’t get his hands on this vid ‘cause he is nothing if not fair and balanced.
And as far as we know, Obama, whose preference as husband of the Health Nut Czarina is not for meatballs but for 5 Guys Cheeseburgers, never gave up meat either. I’m sure there’s a joke there somewhere, one so bad it could bring down the White House, which has had to deal with “the toughest times any president could face”, but has not yet endured anything as challenging as the devastating mockery of Bill Maher.
