Say it, and it must be so. Obama’s claim to transparency amounted to a blinding, eager presumption by polarized liberals that he would proceed with another first-year promise, that of “no more business as usual.” The former resulted in an intrusion that only rendered our own personal lives transparent; the latter claim resulted in the unheralded accommodation of merely a different set of even more lobbyists.
I would have rather seen the two claims manifest themselves in the form of … oh, I don’t know, maybe the FDA highlighting food ingredients still found in our products but long-ago banished in Europe. Or a White House press conference that wasn’t so orchestrated with selected, preordained questions and answers.
Then the Fed could have integrated the Consumer Price Index within those statistics that determine our inflation rate, thus accounting for the increased cost of food and fuel. But none of that practical application happened. It turned out to be politically expedient for us to see some falsely manufactured semblance of a promised utopia.
But all the world is now so liberally staged — much now in preparation for the arrival of Hillary. A sinister propaganda evokes the preconceived notion of innocence, lest of course “this war on woman” should prevail.
To better insulate Hillary against her Republican counterpart, Hollywood and the mainstream media give us the now trendier “war on bossy,” further pre-empting any perceived transparency while facilitating the means by which Hillary remains unapproachable and unaccountable during future debates or town hall meetings.
Below is a letter written and submitted by myself recently, to five different newspapers across the fruited plain. All were divisions of Gannett News which had, until then, published all of my previous letters as well as a column. None published this piece which is, in and of itself, very telling.
It is wise to know the extent of liberal entrenchment here in America. This squashed FCC story is the quintessence of what concerned McCarthy; disloyalty, subversion, and treason. No, I don’t agree with McCarthy’s methods or the public haranguing by the Hoover administration, but these ends, here and now, could have justified at least some those protective means.
Truth has become taboo to liberals, and so the liberal media and Hollywood have united to protect this Utopian sphere of their own making, less we learn of the harsh realities of life.
You can read it and weep, or rejoice in what we’ve learned from this loss…this injustice to truth.
The FCC, under the direction of the Obama administration, has proposed stationing FCC admins within news outlets to moderate content, releasing only what they consider suitable to a particular demographic in certain areas. While this has the makings of a whole new dimension of gerrymander amidst the already yellowed journalism we now experience, one can now at least discern those conspirators, and their complicity within this corrupt cabal of reporters and lawyers.
Those self-appointed stalwarts of truth and justice, the AP and the ACLU have decisively turned a blind eye, and deaf ear to Obama’s FCC policy. Now, it does stand to reason, if reason is allowed, that both the ACLU, and AP elected to selectively squash the FCC story to curry favor the white house, pretending it never existed, and, or fall back on the old, presumed “Fox News Lies” axiom, in which case, then, MediaMatters would have condemningly posted an objection… only it didn’t; testament, to an already established, albeit clandestine, state controlled media, whose silence has become deafening.
Perhaps one could better understand the ramifications of this proposed FCC policy if only our schools would teach of FDR’s War Censorship Act, the harsh realities, implications and likes of which we’ll expect to be minimized by the mainstream media as rioters in Venezuela now rage against the state controlled, media machine.
To think that you’ll never smell the sum remains of these scary, civil liberties infringements from your house, is ignorant- that only your opinion is sacred- arrogant!
During President Obama’s re-election campaign, he had a sudden and glorious change of heart towards the merits of gay marriage and rights. When presented with the opportunity to kowtow Putin by participating in the Russian Olympics, our “lame duck president” discarded, like so many punched voter tickets, his previously professed principle and allegiance with gay rights while still managing to come up smelling like roses thanks to a liberal media.
I’d also expect the Jewish community, (another big part of the Democratic voter base), to be equally outraged by our patronage of these Russian hosts who have long supplied Iran with weapons and nuclear components. Then, to any American troubled by Russia’s refusal to extradite Snowden with his cache of our secrets that he now shares with Russia, I would not expect silence.
If that’s not enough, then we’ll go four times as many good reasons to boycott the current Russian Olympics than was needed when President Carter decided to do so back in 1980; the very hosting city of Sochi is in proximity to terrorist safe havens, putting our athletes in grave danger. Anyone could have boycotted NBC, who knew, full well, of Russia’s oppressive nature when deciding to cover the event.
I jumped from that Democratic ship back when President Clinton granted China most favored nation status before redefining the words “sex” and “lies.” How much more will it take beyond our current president being a Putin puppet before other Democrats see their party for what it is?

Let’s be honest: if Obama had boycotted the Olympics, you’d be writing about how he kowtowed to gay voters at the expense of hundreds of young athletes who trained for years to earn their spot at the table. You just don’t like Obama, and nothing he does will ever make you happy.
Here is my definition of blindness as it pertains to politics: anyone who says either “the Democrats get everything right and nothing wrong” or “the Republicans get everything right and nothing wrong.” Neither party gets it right every time….
Sure…”let’s be honest!” I guess if “kowtowing to gay voters at the expense of hundreds of young athletes who trained for years to earn their spot at the table,” held any weight among bleeding heart liberals, then we’d see them actually vote an increase in taxes to fund all school sports in their district, only…that aint gonna happen! …
The Olympics should not be political. No one wants to see a boycott–no one. President Obama did the right thing.
And far from being Putin’s puppet, it’s the other way around. With the mere consideration of bombing Syria, Obama was able to win appeasement from Putin, proving once again that Obama is the smartest one in the room.
By the way, imagine, two tiny nations, Norway and Canada out-performed the USA at the Olympics. How did that happen? The best we can say is that we took home the most consolation prizes while Russia, Norway, and Canada took the most gold….
Is that how you saw the Syria difficulty? Never mind the fact the majority of the public did not support a Syria bombing, Assad is a Putin ally. They out maneuvered the US quite deftly, courtesy of John Kerry’s slip of the tongue. President Obama had no choice but to take the weapons deal. Of course, it has been delay after delay by Syria since. They played us Alvin. …
