"Beyond Belief


Have left live links so you can view video. 
Looks like the tea party is a groundswell growing exponentially in dimension.  Definitely no accurate reporting from the lamestream media bent on delivering their point of view in place of the news .... which has become so obvious even those in denial can grasp it.

"I was wondering yesterday how the media would be responding to these anti-tax rallies across the country yesterday. I suggested that the leftist media would be presenting the protestors as rightwing extremist nut jobs who were motivated by greed and wanted to make sure that none of their money was ever used to help the (ugh) "less fortunate."

So, how did it turn out? Have you heard about this CNN reporter named Susan Roesgen? If you have the time and want to listen to her report from the Chicago tea-party you can click right    or watch below. If not, well ... let me tell you. This Roesgen person was, as I said, covering the Chicago rally. She picked out a rather inarticulate person from the crowd: "Ok, you're here with your 2-year-old ... why are you here today?" The protester said that he was here today because he heard the president say that he believed what Lincoln stood for and he then tried to explain Lincoln's attitude toward taxes. Rather than interviewing this guy, Roesgen started to argue with him: "Sir, what does this have to do with taxes? What does this have to do with your taxes?" Then she asked "Do you realize that you're eligible for a $400 credit ...?" At that point the man said "let me finish my point?"

Wait a minute! Read that again? This guy is protesting taxes, and this ignoranus CNN reporter asks him if he realizes that he is eligible for some type of $400 credit? What is she saying? I'll tell you what she's saying. This guy shouldn't be protesting taxes because he's going to be getting a check!

The interview proceeds. The man says that Lincoln believed that people had a right to the fruits of their own labor and that "government should not take it." Roesgen then stuck her finger in his face and said "Do you know that the state of Lincoln gets $50 billion dollars out of this stimulus, that's $50 billion dollars for this state." At this point someone in the crowd says something and the man becomes a bit frustrated. Roesgen turns away and starts talking to the anchor. Now listen to this gem from this wonderful, objective CNN reporter:

"OK, Cara, we'll move on over here. I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti-government. Anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right wing conservative network Fox, and since I can't really hear much more and I think this is not really family viewing it's time to come back to you Cara."

The CNN anchor ... Cara or Kara or whatever ... then says "Wow, that is a prime example of what we're covering here. Susan pointed out everything plain and clear what she's dealing with."

Well .. there you have it. These tax protestors are "anti-government." The don't want to be taxed out of fifty percent of everything they earn .. and they're anti-government. They're also anti-CNN. Where did THAT come from? Do you know that Pew research did a poll last year and found that more Democrats and independents watch Fox News than Republicans? But to Susan Roesgen Fox is right wing and conservative.

The fact is Roesgen was saying just what the Democrats wanted her to say. Last night the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was reporting that "...critics -- especially Democrats -- have labeled the gatherings as frauds created by Republican advocacy groups with the backing of deep-pocketed lobbyists and Fox News." Yup ... these idiots at these rallies couldn't possibly have opinions of their own. They're just a creation of the Republican Party and Fox. Roesgen handled the Democrat message a little clumsily ... but handle it she did.

It was also rather odd that when Roesgen would look into the camera when she was talking about stimulus checks for Illinois. Why? Because she was making her own statement. She was the person being interviewed ... not the actual protestor. She wasn't really that interested in what this guy had to say ... she had her own opinions and she wanted to make sure they got aired.

There you have it folks. This is the way much of the liberal media will be covering the protests today. These are anti-government right-wing kooks

I was thinking about the tea parties yesterday.
What came to my mind was the one single protestor by the name of Cindy Sheehan and all the news coverage she generated against Bush and the war.
All depends who is protesting .

These hundreds of massive tea parties held yesterday by ordinary citizens have the liberal elites sacred big-time. Protests have always been a tool of the left, and it scares them that ordinary people -- not right-wing, left-wing, or anything else other than ordinary folks -- are now fully engaged and using the tactics of the left to beat them at their own game.

Obviously its not just the CNN reporter, although that left-wing nut job did prove to be the best example. The reporters in the studio who let the comments go (and added to them), as well as the executives who saw nothing wrong with the report, are all engaged in the same left-wing nuttiness as the reporter. That's why Fox News is doing so well. They don't treat their viewers as morons incapable of making up their own minds like CNN and the other "news" stations do.

Thanks JAP!! Yep she was the focal point of the crocodile tear whiners awhile back, wasn't she?? Haven't heard from her in a long time, guess she's been discarded like used bathroom tissue. Outcome was predictable.

Thanks Todd, yes they are scared. If Homeland Security under the Bush administration issued a comment as radical as Napolotano just issued it would heve been ensuing riots all over. Double standard, you betcha.

Yes those out of touch global elitists scared spitless of regular American folks (aka 'their subjects' ) waking up ... coming back together ... voicing outrage.

Expect the next four summer tax protests to rival anything happening in the 60's.

I applaud these latest efforts, although I'm not confident that they'll have any effect on the overall scheme of events unfolding before us now unless the movement can be sustained. Let's face facts; Fox News has an agenda to push just as CNN does. Whether you call yourself a Republican or Conservative, Democrat or Liberal, Independent, Federalist or Whig really doesn't matter that much anymore; your name is going to pop up on someone's list of subversives once your declaration has been made.

     In my opinion, the two-party system has been a major factor in the destruction of our nation. As they struggle for power and domination over each other, the Republicans and Democrats have stopped the game so many times that it has become impossible for either side to score any points, as every perceived goal is bitterly contested by the opposing team. Consequently, I believe we've all lost sight of the true object of accomplishment here - THEY aren't supposed to win or lose; THEY are nothing more than the players WE'VE sent out on the field; THEY are supposed to play for US. As we choose our loyalties and root for our favorite team, we allow certain liberties to be taken: Full retirement benefits after four years of service, complete health care with no deductible, unlimited expense accounts, protection and immunity from civil and criminal liability, exhorbitant salaries for what are essentially part-time jobs, new cars and all the other amenities that come with being a celebrity. Once again I'm compelled to ask, why should we pay our elected officials significantly more money than we pay our teachers, our police officers or our soldiers, sailors and Marines? I've posed this query many times, but I have yet to receive a satisfactory answer.

     If we're going to choose up sides as though our political process is nothing more than a footbal game, we need more than two choices. It's becoming more and more difficult to recognize the fans and players of either side, as both parties have become hopelessly homogenized. Indeed, we now have pundits who classify themselves as "Liberal-Conservatives" or "Conservative-Liberals." I don't know what either term means, but then, I don't care; I'm no longer a fan of either team, and I don't root for either side, because no matter which team eventually proclaims victory, the prize money, every dime of it, comes from OUR pockets. The only sure thing in any wager we might make is that WE lose our bets, no matter what the outcome (kind of like playing Hoosier Lottery games).

     Fox News and CNN are nothing more than wholly-owned generators of propoganda. Their broadcasts are designed to garner RATINGS from loyal viewers like you. As such, their "reports" are intended to entertain rather than inform. If I wanted to be entertained, I'd get my news from Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert; their reports are just as valid and contain as many facts as those presented by Fox News and CNN every night. Give me a Walter Cronkite or a Roger Mudd; I WANT my news to be boring, and I can easily do without my commentators' personal opinions concerning the topic at hand, a nasty habit which is practiced by both "news" agencies, and one which is clearly designed to influence their viewers' beliefs.

     If you're unable or simply too busy to form your own opinions, then, by all means, tune into Rush's show, or Glenn Beck's or Sean Hannity's. They're only too happy to tell you what your opinion should be, and they won't waste your time telling you the ENTIRE story, but only those bits you'll need to believe they're right and everyone who disagrees with them (and you) is wrong. These men have no concept of what we're going through; they're paid millions of dollars per year to sell us the idea that they're in the same boat we are, and therefore we should listen to them. After their respective broadcasts, they drive their Mercedes or their Lexus past the guard house to their respective homes in their respective gated communities. They might pour themselves two fingers of Blue-Label scotch as they sigh heavily and fall back into their massage chairs saying, "I can't believe how difficult life in America has become for us." It is my considered opinion that the opinions of these men amount to NOTHING, because their opinions are based upon conjecture and perceptions skewed by what they think it must be like to live the way most of us do. They are no more "in touch" with the common man than those who comprise our government.

     We didn't steal this nation from the natives by turning our heads and saying, "Let someone else do it." We took it by force, we held onto it by force, and that's the only way we're going to get it back. The recent "tea parties" are a very good indication that there's dissention afoot, and I believe this is a very good sign that the people are fed up with being fed up. It's an indication that we CAN unite for a common cause. I'll be following this movement very closely but, at this point, I can only hope it grows into something more powerful than our government. This is how political parties are born and made; should this latest grass-roots movement evolve with a steadily-growing membership, we might eventually end up with a third choice on the next ballot, and one that can be effective in challenging an antiquated two-party system which has corrupted itself beyond salvation.

Jim thank you as always for your well thought out, superbly articulated points. I see a coming together of America for a common cause and like many pray the momentum continues.
