The Common Thread of the left: Today Sandy & Bloomberg

“..For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to tes­tify to the truth. Every­one who belongs to the truth lis­tens to my voice.”

Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”

John 18:37b-38a

As I’ve been watch­ing the news closely I’ve noticed a com­mon thread in the behav­ior of the left. and those who sup­port them involv­ing the rejec­tion of Truth. This is the first of a series of posts along these lines:

Clue­less Bloomberg on Sandy 911 Chaos: “The tech­nol­ogy func­tioned per­fectly”
Posted by Jam­mie on Nov 20, 2012 at 7:52 am

The most out of touch man on the planet again shoves both feet in his mouth. Has there ever been a moment when he didn’t, just out of guilt, admit the fail­ure of some­thing under his command?

Mind you that same Morn­ing Joe talked about how won­der­ful Bloomberg/​Obama did dur­ing Sandy before the elec­tion yet today Mika was tweet­ing about pho­tos of the still exist­ing dis­as­ter three weeks later. One of Glenn’s read­ers put it thus:

“It’s not clue­less­ness or incom­pe­tence; it’s the Big Lie…and it is now per­va­sive in our gov­ern­ment and media. They know the fail­ings full well. They’ve just decided it’s eas­ier to whitewash/​ignore them than do any­thing seri­ous about them. Besides, work­ing on real prob­lems would take resources away from the ‘trans­form­ing Amer­ica’ agenda.”

This Jibes with a story in the Leomin­ster Cham­pion that got no cov­er­age of local good Samar­i­tan Ginny White trip to NY to help:

She ended up being sent to The Rock­aways, where FEMA and Amer­i­can Red Cross were accept­ing donations.

The Friends of the Fire­fight­ers set up for me to go and drop of dona­tions from our City of Angels. When we got there, the Good Samar­tians got there first and loaded up the fire sta­tion. The fire­fight­ers were so grate­ful, they took a few skids of juice and such, then sent us about a mile away to where the Red Cross was set up in a park­ing lot,” a very upset White began.

OK a good start but when she finally found the Red Cross

We pulled in with our truck, and after get­ting a run around from FEMA and the red cross, a woman finally came to my truck and asked what we had.”

Ginny opened the back of the truck and the reed cross woman went in and started rip­ping open bags and bins, accord­ing to White.

She looked at me and said ‚“we don’t take this stuff, putting her hand up in the air, and walked away,”

Ginny as any­one in the Fitch­burg Leomin­ster area knows tire­lessly works for the poor was not amused.

I went behind her and said “wait a minute, I was told to come here and help peo­ple,” Ginny said.

She said she was quite upset over the turn of events. Ms. White con­tin­ued, “while we were there, a vic­tim came up to me and asked if we had any blan­kets as she needed one. I told her I had new and used, and she said she would take a used one. I went to hand her a blan­ket, and four red cross peo­ple came over and told her I could not give this lady a blan­ket,” she said.

As it ended up, Ginny snuck the blan­ket and a box of food to the woman.

I could not believe they would not let me give away what we brought,” a dis­traught White said.

But we can’t blame the Red Cross, it’s pol­icy:

Dawn Leaks, regional direc­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the Red Cross said it is pol­icy that the agency does not accept bulk dona­tions for dis­as­ter relief.

We work with part­ner agen­cies such as Sal­va­tion Army and Catholic Char­i­ties who do that,” Ms. leaks said.

Accord­ing to Red Cross pol­icy, only cash dona­tions are accepted.

Ms. Leaks said it is an unfor­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion that Ms. White was turned away, but it is pol­icy, and that is just how it works.

But wait, I thought we were cut­ting through red tape to help these peo­ple, that’s what the media, the left and the Pres­i­dent Said.

There is nobody that I’ve heard of who spends more time and effort on the needs of the poor and Hun­gry, now Ginny is totally turned off on the Red Cross.

If George Bush was in office Ginny White would be on every TV net­work but this is the time of the Big Lie.

The Big Lie, it’s all about not telling the truth or “speak­ing truth to power” but about push­ing a meme and if some peo­ple are with­out blan­kets that’s just the way it is. More on that tomorrow.

Clueless Bloomberg on Sandy 911 Chaos: “The technology functioned perfectly”
Posted by Jammie on Nov 20, 2012 at 7:52 am

The most out of touch man on the planet again shoves both feet in his mouth. Has there ever been a moment when he didn’t, just out of guilt, admit the failure of something under his command?

Mind you that same Morning Joe talked about how wonderful Bloomberg/Obama did during Sandy before the election yet today Mika was tweeting about photos of the still existing disaster three weeks later. One of Glenn’s readers put it thus:

“It’s not cluelessness or incompetence; it’s the Big Lie…and it is now pervasive in our government and media. They know the failings full well. They’ve just decided it’s easier to whitewash/ignore them than do anything serious about them. Besides, working on real problems would take resources away from the ‘transforming America’ agenda.”

This Jibes with a story in the Leominster Champion that got no coverage of local good Samaritan Ginny White trip to NY to help:

She ended up being sent to The Rockaways, where FEMA and American Red Cross were accepting donations.

“The Friends of the Firefighters set up for me to go and drop of donations from our City of Angels. When we got there, the Good Samartians got there first and loaded up the fire station. The firefighters were so grateful, they took a few skids of juice and such, then sent us about a mile away to where the Red Cross was set up in a parking lot,” a very upset White began.

OK a good start but when she finally found the Red Cross

“We pulled in with our truck, and after getting a run around from FEMA and the red cross, a woman finally came to my truck and asked what we had.”

Ginny opened the back of the truck and the reed cross woman went in and started ripping open bags and bins, according to White.

“She looked at me and said ,”we don’t take this stuff, putting her hand up in the air, and walked away,”

Ginny as anyone in the Fitchburg Leominster area knows tirelessly works for the poor was not amused.

“I went behind her and said “wait a minute, I was told to come here and help people,” Ginny said.

She said she was quite upset over the turn of events. Ms. White continued, “while we were there, a victim came up to me and asked if we had any blankets as she needed one. I told her I had new and used, and she said she would take a used one. I went to hand her a blanket, and four red cross people came over and told her I could not give this lady a blanket,” she said.

As it ended up, Ginny snuck the blanket and a box of food to the woman.

“I could not believe they would not let me give away what we brought,” a distraught White said.

But we can’t blame the Red Cross, it’s policy:

Dawn Leaks, regional director of communications with the Red Cross said it is policy that the agency does not accept bulk donations for disaster relief.

“We work with partner agencies such as Salvation Army and Catholic Charities who do that,” Ms. leaks said.

According to Red Cross policy, only cash donations are accepted.

Ms. Leaks said it is an unfortunate situation that Ms. White was turned away, but it is policy, and that is just how it works.

But wait, I thought we were cutting through red tape to help these people, that’s what the media, the left and the President Said.

There is nobody that I’ve heard of who spends more time and effort on the needs of the poor and Hungry, now Ginny is totally turned off on the Red Cross.

If George Bush was in office Ginny White would be on every TV network but this is the time of the Big Lie.

The Big Lie, it’s all about not telling the truth or “speaking truth to power” but about pushing a meme and if some people are without blankets that’s just the way it is. More on that tomorrow.
