Hannity's War Mongering & His American Sniper Exclusive


Hannity is a great supporter of war...

At 1:15: FoxNews pushes the belief that spending is bad EXCEPT when done for war!

Given how much Hannity likes war, lets take a look at what the "American Sniper" would look like from an... alien observer, if there was one.

George Bush used fear as the primary tactic...

To push a war for oil...

Documentary: "Why We Did It" - The Invasion of Iraq

In this war for oil America killed 1.2 Million people...

America's war lords made allot of money...

The people who decided to fight back were killed by snipers.

This is the story of one of the greatest of these stormtroopers....

Exclusive: Screenwriter on significance of 'American Sniper'Jan. 15, 2015 - 4:13 - Movie has been nominated for six Oscars

Conclusion: America glorifies killing for oil as it's for it's revered war lords. It's considered a patriotic accomplishment celebrated by the whole country.

NOTES from Bill O Reilly.co:

Video of talking points: Who is still supporting President Obama?
Left out the fact that 61% oppose ground troops. That said and including the link above I would just like to add that "insurgent" is the same as "rebel". In this scenario ISIS, whatever they are, is the David and WE are the Goliath (or "Empire" if we use Star wars analogies). 30,000 or 100,000 troops in some desert on the other side of the world, with no airbase and means of expansion can never be a threat to the United States Military.
He repeated this 3 times, it's like he wants people to remember this! In that case, what does he want people NOT to remember?
Anyone who is informed and notplaying politics by playing to the base.
We are still reeling from the Bush Administrations foreign policy.
The Great Obama Bull Market will roar till 2016

Yes, it’s time to celebrate. We’re in a historic bull market. GOP conservatives keep fighting the wrong war, against the Obama economy. Meanwhile, the Obama bull market keeps roaring ahead!. And the long term looks even better: Bullish pundits predict stocks will continue climbing into the 2016 presidential election.

Folks, this stock market has been roaring since March 2009 when the DJIA bottomed at 6,547, a painful 53.9% drop from the October 2007 high of 14,164 during the Wall Street bank credit crash in Bush’s last year as president. The S&P 500 also bottomed, at 676, a 56.6% drop.

However, since March 2009 the stock market has been steadily climbing. Over five years. And the DJIA’s made a remarkable recovery, to just under its next big milestone, 17,000. While the S&P500 is nearing 2,000, headed up. Yes, market gains over 250% ... and still climbing!

So what can we expect from the stock market by 2016 and the election of the next American president? More! Fabulous 250% gains so far. And bigger gains possible coming in the next couple years till we elect a new president. Maybe over 300%. Gains likely to favor a Democrat.

Get it? GOP conservatives may have been successful in slowing America’s economic recovery. But the stock market is actually getting surprisingly stronger from this political war. With every Obama progressive move — Obamacare, ERA regulations, equal pay for women, gay rights, minimum wages, stem-cell research, immigration, Osama bin Laden, deficit cuts and so much more — GOP conservatives and the tea party learn little, only hear enough for another attack on Obama, offer no solutions, just opposition.

 Our foreign policy is a "mess" that definitely needs a transparent & very public investigation.
Without going into details myself, the economy is HORRIBLE only in the States that watch Fox News because that is what they believe because of GOP created fake news which they market to the American People and then they say 'We are following the will of the American People' but if the American people knew what has been going on in Congress they would demand a transparent investigation (it would have to be a regular talking point or "issue" for people to take action as the media very clearly proved with ISIS). 

That said, here is the GOP/Fox-News echo chamber outlined Information/Press 3 - The GOP/Fox News/"Conservative" Echo Chamber

Here is some news with a positive spin (as oppposed to Fox News's negative one) but the statistical facts can't be denied (including what the GOP has been doing).
Aww, thanks!
He is a historical figure as was Bush. (Wow! What a racist thing to say!)
This statement has so much buried in it that I would just like to expand on this for now by saying that currently the ones getting the biggest entitlements in the form of welfare are the billion dollar profit generating oil industries. Why does O Reilly not cover this in more detail?

From Mother JonesOver the past century, the federal government has pumped more than $470 billion into the oil and gas industry in the form of generous, never-expiring tax breaks. Once intended to jump-start struggling domestic drillers, these incentives have become a tidy bonus for some of the world's most profitable companies.

Taxpayers currently subsidize the oil industry by as much as $4.8 billion a year, with about half of that going to the big five oil companies—ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, BP, and ConocoPhillips—which get an average tax break of $3.34 on every barrel of domestic crude they produce. With Washington looking under the couch cushions for sources of new revenue, oil prices topping $100 a barrel, and the world feeling the heat from its dependence on fossil fuels, there's been a renewed push to close these decades-old loopholes. But history suggests that Big Oil won't let go of its perks without a brawl
I understand why. When faced with poll motivated politics (Dems) VS lie based politics (GOP), activists figure they have to support the good guy. Not everyone has only the time to watch TV news... only some people, such as political activists, have time to look into what's going on behind the scenes.
So... he's saying that when people hear Obama has low approval rating they like him more? SO Obama gets a sympathy boost for bad polls? That's interesting!
I reported on his last nights talking points here. Reporting on Fox News is, more often than not, a joke.
Here we encounter the crux of GOP politics, i.e. how they see and use power. The Bush Administration saw no problems in lying to the American People about the economy, spending trillions of dollars on unfunded wars, slashing revenue so the economy gets weaker, breaking down regulations leading to the housing bubble and the financial collapse of 2008 which almost became a depression.
The reason Obama waits is because he moves with the polls. The media makes the polls so he can't act till the polls tell him what to do (reminds me allot of Bill Clinton's presidency). The GOP like to both create public opinion and act without thinking out a problem, like when Dick Cheney said invading Iraq would be a mistake (quagmire) but then did anyways and turns out he made allot of money as his oil company coincidentally got no-bid oil contracts in Iraq.
Well, kinda. Having an "Islamic State' made by a violent and vicious group is like a dream come true for GOP/Fox News politics of creating rumor based news to manipulate public opinion. When the GOP invaded Iraq they killed over a hundred thousand Iraqi's and didn't bat an eye and they managed to get there using the uncredible evidence provided by an ex-Iraqi. In the same way they focused all of their anger and echo chambers of 'how awful this is', 'how evil they are' etc. without ever providing a logical National Security reason for getting rid of ISIS. It's exactly how they got us into Iraq, destabilizing it, in the first place... through hyping up small bits of irrelevant news to the situation. Two war time journalists got caught and killed by a group using a shock and awe tactics. If they didn't want to be in danger they shouldn't have gone to Syria.

Simple rule: Only recommend what you, yourself, would be willing to do. I'm fine with flying a jet to kill ISIS myself but not as a ground troop. Every GOP guy that wants ground troops should volunteer a family member to be on the front lines... only then should we consider these chicken hawks seriously.
True. The ones that should most concern us are the ones creating echo chambers of lies.

That's right. Being hard on terrorists abroad may be necessary in our new age of inter-connectivity but it shouldn't take the place of being hard on terrorists here at home. We should be defending the Nation against "all enemies foreign and domestic". Simply being white and rich should not give anyone a free pass from the laws of the nation.

Note: A link to Iraq War profiteering by the Koch Brothers has also been found. It's likely there are others.
