Something the Daily Show picked up on that the main stream media didn't;
FOX NEWS PROVES THAT MEDIA CAN SWING PUBLIC OPINION WITH LIES!
ALL FOX NEWS HAS TO DO IS GET SOMEONE TO SAY SOMETHING WITH A DEROGATORY TONE TO IT AND OBVIOUSLY MSNBC & CNNWILL FOLLOW THIER LEAD. WHO CARES WHO COMMITTED THE CRIME WHEN THE NATION IS A 50-50 NATION, RIGHT? MIGHT AS WELL SPREAD THE BLAME EQUALLY? (WHAT CRAP! THE GOP WOULD NEVER DO THAT. IN FACT, THEY HAVE CONSISTENTLY BLAMED EVERYTHING ON OBAMA INCLUDING THIER ASSAULT ON THE US ECONOMY & IT HAS WORKED, SO FAR).
ANYWAYS, THE GOP OWNED MEDIA DID A GREAT JOB. NOW PEOPLE ARE BLAMING THE ONES WHO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SHUTDOWN AND THIS IS QUITE LITERALLY THE MEDIA'S FAULT (SEE IMAGE ABOVE). AS FAR AS MY ARGUMENTS FOR HOLDING THE "NEWS" RESPONSIBLE FOR NATIONAL SECURITY PROBLEMS, I REST MY CASE. ONLY FOOLS WOULD SAY I HAVEN'T PROVEN THE US NEWS MEDIA IS BAD FOR THE US ECONOMICALLY AND BAD FOR THE STUFF THAT IS CONNECTED TO GOOD ECONOMIC HEALTH.
WHAT'S GOING ON: HOW BIG MONEY & BIG MEDIA HAVE COUPLED TO CREATE A 'DISNEY WORLD' OF DEMOCRACY
STEP BY STEP OUTLINE
SEAN HANNITY USES THE TIME TESTED "LIBERALS ARE EVIL" TACTICWHICH HAS BEEN ANCHORED DEEP INTO THEIR VIEWERS PSYCHE.
MOST VETERANS ARE GOP VOTERS, ESPECIALLY THE OLDER ONES, SO THEY ONLY WATCH FOX NEWS... SO LYING TO THEM IS EASY PROVIDING THEY DON'T STUMBLE ACROSS THE TRUTH. FORTUNATELY, MICHELLE BACHMANN HAS A SOLUTION THAT SEEMS TO FLATTER OLD PEOPLE INTO SUBMISSION (SEE BELOW).
THIS ONE IS INTERESTING, THE GOP HAS ALREADY ADMITTED IT WANTS SOMETHING IN RETURN FOR OPENING UP THE GOVERNMENT (OF WHICH CONGRESS IS A PART OF)... SO TO BLAME THIS ON OBAMA IS JUST SO WRONG. IF THIS IS GOOD FOR NATIONAL SECURITY... I'LL EAT MY HAT.
THE TACTIC CONTINUES, BASICALLY BLAMING EVERYTHING THEY DID ON THE DEMOCRATS. IT'S LIKE A THIEF BREAKING INTO A SAFE AND BLAMING IT ON THE CAT!
THEN YOU GET TO TEST THE REAL METAL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THE GOP'S POLICIES INCLUDING CUTTING FUNDING FOR FOOD STAMPS (MEALS FOR POOR), SOCIAL SECURITY (CHECKS FOR THE ELDERLY) AND MEDICARE. IN OTHER WORDS, THE PAUL RYAN PLAN IS LITERALLY DESIGNED TO INFLICT PAIN ON US CITIZENS. THE QUESTION IS THIS... IS THIS A LAST DITCH ATTEMPT TO DESTROY THE US ECONOMY OR DOES FOX NEWS REALLY BELIEVE THEY CAN PULL OFF THESE LIES IN THE LONG RUN? I'M GUESSING THEY KNOW THEY HAVE LOST THE LOGIC BATTLE SO NOW DESTROYING AMERICA IS THEIR ONLY OPTION LEFT OR US CITIZENS WILL FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND LYNCH THEM!
MEALS ON WHEELS IS SIMILAR TO FOOD STAMPS ISN'T IT? (ANSWER IS YES, JUST IN CASE!). YOU DO KNOW THAT CUTTING FOOD STAMPS IS PART OF THE PAUL RYAN PLAN (I.E. IT'S BEEN GOP POLICY FOR OVER 5 YEARS NOW)
THIS PART IS GREAT! MICHELLE BACHMANN SAYS SHE WANT'S LESS GOVERNMENT BUT TO THE VETERANS BELOW SHE SAYS SHE WANTS MORE GOVERNMENT TO HELP THEM!
HERE MICHELLE BACHMANN MAKES IT CLEAR THAT THIS SHUTDOWN HAS MADE HER AND HER FELLOWS "ENERGIZED":
HERE MICHELLE BACHMANN MAKES IT CLEAR THAT THIS SHUTDOWN HAS MADE HER AND HER MEMBERS 'THE HAPPIEST IN A LONG TIME':
THIS IS JUST SICKENING. TO BRING ANCIENT FOX NEWS LIES ABOUT BENGHAZI THAT THEY USED FOR MITT ROMNEY IN THE LAST GENERAL ELECTIONS IS JUST IMMORAL ON SO MANY LEVELS I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY...
THE TACTIC HERE IS TO SAY THAT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS WHAT YOU ARE THERE TO PROTECT OTHERS FROM. IT'S LIKE A PER-EMPTIVE STRIKE ON BEING CAUGHT RED HANDED...
Below: U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham's Utter Hypocrisy In Blaming Another Branch Of The Government From His Own For What He Voted For (you do know The House is part of the Federal Government as per the Constitution don't you?).
1. George Bush increased the debt ceiling in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006. 2007 and twice in 2008
2. Eric Cantor - only concession, "The fact they we are even talking about a debt ceiling increase.
3. They’re shutting it down: GOP demands Obamacare be gutted, or else
4. Fox News' False Statements - Fox News turns into a lying dynasty when PolitiFact checks the news network for false statements.
5. News Corp. gives $1 million to Republicans
Summary of what's happened so far:
GOP's Shutdown Of The US Government Was A Planned Strategy! I Guess It's Just Business As Usual!(this is sarcasm as this is the second time they have tried holding the Government Hostage... while doing the OPPOSITE in the past, thus proving thier outright hypocrisy)
The Cost Of Shut Down $300 Million Per Day & So Far, The Publicity Is Bad For GOP (Interestingly enough, when faced with a losing battle the GOP has the ability to move public opinion with lies ... & that's not even the worst part! Thier skill at lying is so good they don't even flinch! See examples below.)
Ted Cruz Talks About ObamaCare As If It's Already Started! Media's Fault Or Is Ted Cruz Trying To Pull A Fast One? .. status of this is currently unknown, i.e. if Ted Cruz is involved intentionally or acciedentally. So far the GOP seems to be playing a game of shadow. i.e. Whatever an opponent says they just repeat it back. BTW, does anyone really believe Ted Cruz is dangerous or was that justthe usual election cycle GOP threat to the population? Ted Cruz could easily be working for the Canadian government to destroy the US Economy (we wouldn't know). If the US is no longer the most trusted name for Treasury bonds on the planet then Canada could be... that must be his game plan, I hope, cause my theories just get worse from here)
GOP Leaders Even Admitted They Are Holding The Government Of "We The People" Hostage! (but when they are called on it, they say no it wasn't them! Simple reality is that the GOP are getting desperate for their lies to work cause if they don't then everyone will know one simple fact,what they are doing is committing Treason as per article 3 section 3 of the US Constitution and they know it)
More Shutdown Costs: Government Helps Women & Children... Not! Following traditional Texan policy, GOP's shutdown hurts women and children (as usual).
GOP Is Hurting US Citizens For A Minority That Knows This... But Publicly They Are Saying Something Else! (This gets better, notice Michelle Bachman's utter hypocrisy - proven below in more detail - with what the GOP did before, thus knowing they would shutdown the Government on the path they are... while pretending to Veterans that they are on thier side... but LITERALLY saying they are delighted with the shutdown later (see below). The fact that the US public buys these lies so easily is bad for National Security... unless credit rating and credit worthiness are no longer National Secuirty issues but can be destroyed at the whims of politicians and their sponsors).
