Cooper, Amanpour, and Couric taste real violence and vitriol in Cairo

Anderson Cooper, CNN, attacked  – Christiane Amanpour, ABC, and Katie Couric, CBS, all find out what real violence and “vitriol” is all about.  This comes after their months and months of outright lies and faulty reporting with regards to the Tea Party in this country.  I wonder where Brian Williams was.  I think he is also in Cairo, but he’s probably hiding underneath a rock.   All of these people have been perched in their little ivory towers slandering their fellow-Americans.  Uh huh, it was Anderson Cooper who first slurred the Tea Party by calling us “tea baggers” and, along with the rest of them, have advanced the lies and false narrative composed by the mainstream media.  Now he gets hit up side the head 10 times over in Egypt where there’s not a single solitary “tea bagger” outside of himself, that is.  See what violence is, Anderson?

Another story from the foreign press on the Obama trip

Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America.

While lesser mortals – the Pope, Queen Elizabeth and so on – are usually happy to let their hosts handle most of the security and transport arrangements when they venture beyond their home shores, the United States creates a mini-America on the move to ensure that nothing is left to chance.

Here you go, Anderson.  Another story to debunk.  CNN must cover for the president at all cost.  Get those investigative reporters out of mothballs.  Had the American press and media done some reporting on this story, which is really important as to the cost and purpose of the trip with unemployment in the U. S. still at 9.6 percent, then we would not have to rely on the foreign press for details and pictures.   And a lot of fabulous pictures, too.  Make sure you keep Michele Bachmann honest now.  Oh, and by the way, have you been able to uncover some trip she is taking wasting tax payers money yet?  I didn’t think so.

Are the Obamas going into exile?  I’m beginning to wonder.  Better check on that, Andy.

Another story is emerging on firing of Ms. Sherrod (Update 3)

I believe Shirley Sherrod has been wrongly fired after what appears to be a selected portion of her speech to the NAACP was aired.  She said she got three calls from the White House telling  her to resign and she named the person who called her (Cheryl Cook, under secretary at the Department of Agriculture).  Her direct boss fired her, asked for her resignation, whichever it was.  By the way, he said he did not talk to anybody at the White House.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/07/20/sherrod-white-house-worried-about-glenn-beck/?fbid=4raz-4D5Bxm

There was an extremely quick reaction and the reason given to her was that Glenn Beck was going to cover the story yesterday, which he did not.

I saw her on Anderson Cooper just now telling her story about how this experience with the “white farmer” was a turning point in her life showing her that it was not about race, but more about the haves and the have nots.  She said there were things in her life that would have made her feel justified to be racist, but that she had chosen not to live her life that way.  I believed her.  We all have issues that we have to work through.

Mr. Spooner, now 88, the farmer in question, was on remote and said he could not believe what he was hearing when he heard she was fired because she had done a wonderful job and actually did help him to save his farm some 20 years ago, and that she could not have treated him better.

This is another example of how things are twisted to prove a point.  And another example of why I need to just turn off the tv (but I never will and I know it.)

This lady, in her speech to the NAACP, was telling a story about an incident that happened over 20 years ago, using it to illustrate something that would help to bring people together and now she has lost her job because of a misinterpretation of it.  Apparently, nobody cared enough to actually check the story out.

Both Ms. Sherrod and Mr. Spooner were on remote, but I could tell they were genuine and that there was no animosity between them, although they had not seen each other in a long time.  This is how it is in the south the majority of the time.  It’s something nobody seems to understand.  Here you have a gentle black and a gentle white who respect each other and that is more the norm, in my experience.  Ms. Sherrod said she wanted to visit the Spooners and that she would have plenty of time to do it (now that she didn’t have a job).

This is why it is such a travesty the way the haters keep picking at the scabs when we have long since moved past it and live and work together in harmony.  I guess many thought the election of a black president would be the crowning touch and an absolute end to the past but it seems to be making it worse.

Why did the administration want her fired without knowing the whole story?  Some things they take forever to decide and others they make snap decisions in a couple of hours.  Either way, the decisions all seem to be wrong.

This may not be the whole context yet since it is still unfolding.

UPDATE:

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday that he will reconsider the abrupt firing of Shirley Sherrod, a Georgia-based Agriculture Department official who was the victim of a media frenzy over comments that turned out to have been distorted by video editing.

UPDATE2: Oh, boy, this is something else.  NAACP blaming FOX for “snookering” them when Fox didn’t even cover the story.  Neither did Glenn Beck.  The first he said about it was that context was important and she should not have been fired.
And, get this – the NAACP had possession of the full tape and the NAACP President, Jealous, was at the speech.  So they were well aware of the full context.  Ms. Sherrod said they were not interested in her side of the story.  Strange.  The White House that took weeks to even acknowledge the Gulf Oil Gusher demanded she resign, she was fired, the NAACP issued a condemnation within a few hours.  Now they are blaming FOX?  Come on!

Chickaboomer has the story.

UPDATE3: Wow.  This little heartwarming story is now chilling down a bit and backing up to Eric Holder and, of course, Mr. Vilsack, who seems to be taking the blame for their hasty decision to fire Ms. Sherrod.

It all comes from a class action law suit involving mucho money, some of it going to Ms. Sherrod.  It has also been alleged now that there’s a break in the tape provided by the NAACP, an unexplained break, followed by lots of laughing from the crowd. After all, the “complete” tape was provided by the NAACP.   Something is rotten and it’s not all out yet.  Think lots of money, corruption, and Pigford, Pigford, Pigford.  They wanted this killed immediately so – calling all investigative reporters…..and Glenn Beck.  There must be much more to uncover.

Read the back story – most interesting.

Illinois democrat says we are “despicable” and “shameful.”  Seeing as how we are “right-wing activists and fueled by Fox.”  Oh, my, we are So Bad.  🙂  And to top that off we have “cheapened an honorable moment” in history.  🙂

What makes me think that if the Founding Fathers were alive today, they would all have been leading the way.

“”Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted “tea party” protests yesterday, labeling the activities “despicable” and “shameful.”

“The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs,” Schakowsky said in a statement.

“It’s despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt,” she added.””

She goes on to say that that they are “made to look like grassroots uprisings” but are in fact, she says, sponsored by “corporate interests, Republicans, lobbyists, and politicians.”

Huh?  This is a good example of the Lies that are being told.  Flat out lies.

Keep it classy, CNN, MSNBC and the mainstream media

Well, learn something every day.  MSNBC made fun of the protests last night, especially Rachel Maddow, Shuster adds his two cents, and CNN tops it off by having a little giggle party between Anderson Cooper and David Gergen (senior political analyst) when Anderson said it’s hard to talk when you’re “tea- bagging.”

Well. Went right over my head.  I admit it.

But I am so glad that Greg Gutfield ‘splained the vulgar meaning of tea-bagging.  Leave it to what is/was considered to be a respected cable news network.  But seeing as how they couldn’t control the story, and really didn’t want to cover it at all, the best they could do is make jokes about it and laugh at American citizens who just don’t happen to agree with what is going on in this country and who are exercising their/our right to free speech and assembly.  These are hard-working, law-abiding citizens, mothers, fathers, families, ex-military, parents with children now serving in the military, voters, consumers, the people who keep this country running.  More and more people are becoming aware of the game the MSM is playing and more and more people tune them out.

But as I said, keep it classy, MSM.

Anyway, read the backstory Here.

See Michelle Malkin.com for a synopsis of about 800 gatherings today and some great pictures.

What’s going on with Begala, Carville, Stephanopoulos, Rahm Emanuel and Susan Rice’s husband?

This from Newsbusters on Monday.

Back on January 29, we discussed the daily strategy phone call engineered by Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for friendly TV commentators and “reporters.” Politico reported that Emanuel has a daily phone conference call with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, and CNN’s James Carville and Paul Begala. With Rush Limbaugh’s raucous CPAC address, as he termed it his “first address to the nation,” we can see at least one example of what is likely an attack strategy resulting from the Emanuel phone session with a rush to bash Rush the day after the appearance.

And then this today:

The unholy alliance between the White House and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos goes beyond mere conference calls with President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The executive producer,  Ian Cameron, of ABC’s George Stephanopoulos “This Week” is married to newly-confirmed United Nations Ambassador, Susan Rice.

Did they cook up this Bash Rush Limbaugh scheme?  Some are saying they did.  Reportedly, they all talk daily.  So we have the Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel consulting? talking with?  phoning? Paul Begala, James Carville, and George Stephanopoulos every day – and we find the U. N. Ambassador, Susan Rice, is married to the Executive Producer of Stephanopoulos’ ABC program.

I don’t believe they have denied these every day “strategy” calls.  Anderson Cooper asks Begala last night if they are working with the White House as part of a concerted effort to bash Rush Limbaugh Here. I’m not sure what his answer was.  Please listen for yourself.  Guess it depends on what the meaning of “concerted” is.  Of course, Begala already called Limbaugh a corpulent drug addict so I guess that speech at CPAC just played right into their plans.

The Marijuana Hall of Fame And/Or Real Men Use Condoms

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi4Dr2ni8vo

Please watch.  It’s worth it.  You will see the parade of politicians who admit using marijuana, including Senator Obama who states that he inhaled, actually he inhaled frequently, because after all, that’s the point, right?

As Chris Matthews swoons, Howard Fineman is overcome with Barack Obama’s honesty — “He seems so REAL.”  Kiss, kiss, applause, applause, giggle, giggle.

Moving on.

Okay.  Now, let’s see.  Let’s just flesh this out a little bit.   We have learned that, according to Fineman, it is an “accepted part of the culture” and pretty cool to smoke a little weed.  I guess they forgot to mention it, but according to his autobiography, Barack also did some cocaine or “blow,” in his words.  But, hey, let’s not get bogged down in messy facts like that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZzWYCxjdnY

Anyhow.  Moving on.  We will now learn from Joe Biden how he has been trying to tell the guys in the Community how it is NOT unmanly to use a condom.  Oh, my.  What would Al Sharpton say about this?  Oops, there’s Al in the audience.  If looks could kill…..
