Q: What is the best way to deal with the MSM’s reports on this or any Pope.

I’m going to have a longer post on Sunday but a quick comment.

I was driving with DaWife South through Scarborough Maine when I heard an ABC News report about the comments of the Pope supposedly condemning the church obsessing on Abortion or Gay Marriage. I normally don’t react aloud to that kind of stuff but I surprised DaWife by bluntly saying aloud “They’re liars.”

It would not be until yesterday that I actually read the article in question and confirmed this but as their record with both Francis & Benedict has been one of malfeasance and mendacity worthy of the Kimberlin Crowd the best advice I can give to any Catholic is to do the following if they ever hear of any such thing.

1. Say Aloud the media is lying.

2. Find the original source they are misquoting if not possible turn on EWTN radio or TV until further notice.

and if at all in doubt remember the church serves the Prince of Peace while our worldly press serves a different prince.

Remember that and you’ll be fine.

Update: removed the additional “in Maine”

Br’er Rabbit:   please, Brer Fox, please don’t fling me into dat briar patch!

Song of the South 1946

 

One of the basics of tactical planing is when your opponents are destroying themselves you happily get out-of-the-way and let them do it, particularly if you are in dire straights yourself.

Given the humiliations this administration has suffered lately they badly need a win. A seemingly suicidal vote by the House GOP easily swatted away by the Senate and a resulting shutdown that enrages the public would certainly fit the bill, just what the president needs.

That being the case the Democrats and their allies would of course be doing all they can to encourage their foes to take that leap and having their allies help push the GOP over that cliff yet if you spend your time watching CNN & MSNBC and to some degree on Fox  lately you hear nothing but attacks on Ted Cruz and the tea party over de-funding Obamacare.

It’s become a cacophony of cries of anger. The GOP house establishment complaining about having to vote to defend Obamacare in the Continuing Resolution to fund government, the media and the establishment joining them. The one thing that everyone seems to agree on is how this is going to hurt the GOP brand run them off a cliff just before the 2014 elections and keep them from taking a vulnerable senate.

All this AM the Morning Joe crew pounded Ted Cruz and their fans. The highly intelligent folk like Eugene Robinson, Chuck Schumer & Chuck Todd beat the impending drums of doom and Establishment GOP members looking to separate the party from the base berated them for their foolishness with even some conservatives seeking MSM facetime joining in.

Given the meme of  “impending doom” for the GOP in general & the Tea Party in particular I found this rather weak ad via Huffington post a tad odd.

Despite the low quality this ad comes directly from Organizing for America, the Barack Obama campaign itself. Moreover it urges the viewer to tell house republicans “enough is enough”.

Organizing for America didn’t just run that ad once in the hopes of being picked up. It ran multiple times on MSNBC’s Morning Joe during the “morning drive” a peak viewing moment.

So let’s review:

You have Organizing for America buying time on the lead show in the lineup for the mouthpiece network of the administration and doing so where it would get the highest chance of activating a viewing activists to call congress & urge the GOP to reconsider.

It’s one thing for a network to exploit a disagreement in a party to gin up its core viewer base it’s quite another for a political organization to pay for direct ads urging the faithful to tell their political foes not to jump off a cliff and destroy itself.

That indicates that the White House understands the truth, and that truth is the House vote and the Senate votes that follow will, no matter what the final result be devastating in 2014 to Democrat prospects.

Unlike the other Obamacare votes or repeal bills the Senate can’t table it. Each Democrat running in a tough election in 2014 will have to be on the record to fund or not fund a program that the White House & MSM haven’t been able to sell to the public since before it was passed.

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee know and understand this and moreover the MSM & Administration and Harry Reid does too.

That’s why they have pulled out all the stops to do all they can to prevent their allies from being in that situation or provide whatever GOP cover they can to mitigate it and some in the GOP are doing all they can to provide that cover because the one thing the establishment GOP hates more than the prospect of aiding democrats in elections is aiding a tea party’s whose core philosophy is all about restraining a government that is a source of their power and influence.

It’s that simple

Bill Clinton is an unusually good liar

Sen Bob Kerry 1996

 

About nine months ago readers of this blog were introduced to a fellow by the name of Gen El-Haddid whose primary job seemed to be to give the English language version of Muslim Brotherhood propaganda:

Here is what I think. I think this fellow Gehad El-Haddad’s twitter feed is for lazy westerners who don’t want to sort though Arabic, I think it exists to build a real time narrative for the western world. As Nervana Mahmoud puts it in the Daily News of Egypt:

The Muslim Brotherhood is waging a war of perception, not just for domestic consumption but for a western audience, too. Perception is crucial for two reasons: To defeat non-Islamist opponents, who may lose faith quickly when watching the endless number of pro-Morsy protestors in comparison to their relatively lower number in Tahrir and, secondly, to convince western nations that Islamists are the only reliable, powerful force in Egypt and that they are backed by the “majority” of Egyptians.

That’s why Mr. El Haddad’s tweets are not in Arabic. If you consider how easily the west bought the Hamas narrative I can see why he would be sure to tweet “facts” in a language that the lazy western press could understand but the majority of Egyptians would not.

And in July when he was back to his old tricks during the 2nd revolution he was back to his old tricks:

Four of the five replies came from Arabic named accounts and rebuked him, only one supported what he said. So who IS that Mr. Kirpatrick, the Arabic person who is alone in retweeting a Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece.

and the NYT was falling for them as was ABC’s This week who:

…made a video of him on the streets of Cairo pretending he is a man of the Egyptian people and not someone who’s primary purpose is to look good for the west while giving the Muslim brotherhood line while their followers repress them.

Well I came back from a relaxing few days in Maine word came of his arrest by the government of Egypt and along with that news came some other info about his day job:

Before emerging as a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Morsi, el-Haddad served for five years as an official at the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit group founded by former President Bill Clinton.

El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.

He was raised in a family of prominent Brotherhood supporters and became the public face of the Islamist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.

You mean to say that an Egyptian raised in a prominent Muslim Brotherhood Family has been connected to the Clintons since she has been secretary of state coincidentally during the years where we had the most pro-muslim brotherhood foreign policy EVAH?

Powerline asks a question:

What was El-Haddad’s role with the Clinton Foundation? According to his LinkedIn profile, he set up its office in Egypt, supervised policy-making workshops, and presented Foundations views. He was also in charge of the its Clinton Climate Initiative in Egypt.

and Andy McCarthy has more to say but readers of this blog shouldn’t be surprised isn’t surprised because we made the point a long time ago that the Clinton had deliberately hitched their wagon to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In 1996 Bill Clinton was president and people were already talking about a political future for Hillary. Working with her must have been on of the most coveted positions for a young woman in the democrat party. Certainly there must have been plenty of sons and daughters of pols, campaign workers and democrat fundraisers who would have died for the chance to be in that position.

Yet Huma Abadin a young lady still in college who has spent a lifetime in Saudi Arabia not only gets the job, but has stayed with Hillary Clinton her entire life since.

Thinking of Huma I presumed the deal for the support from the Clinton’s was her placement, near power but these people are openly using Muslim Brotherhood guys then the relationship goes farther than getting one of their own in high places.

I wonder how much of that connection to the vast cash reserves of the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters secured democrat support during impeachment, funded democrat think thanks and steered Mrs. Clinton and her “aide” to the point they has reached today not to mention paying for speaking fees around the world and I wonder how many times the Clinton’s name has been used to put Brotherhood allies all over America and the world?

I could be wrong but it’s my opinion that the Brotherhood considers themselves the owners of Bill & Hillary Clinton and if they demand the Clinton’s put an open leader of the Brotherhood in a position of authority they will answer any objection that the Bey of Algiers once gave when another American objected to their orders. He told them they were in fact his slaves and when it comes to slaves…

I have a right to order my slaves as I please.

I believed the Democrats sold themselves when they protected Bill Clinton, I hadn’t imagined they might have done so quite so literally.

I shouldn’t be so hard on the Clintons after all I sell myself to my readers each week for the price of $305.

As my principles are not also sold it’s not as lucrative and it’s a tad more iffy as I face a deficit this week of $264 dollars with two days to go.

It will take 13 $20 tip jar hitters to change this. If you care to help please hit DaTipJar below.
