Big Boys Don't Cry: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Fox News is under attack by the Obama Administration once again. Remember when President Obama sat down with all of the major networks' morning political shows except for Fox last month? After this happened, Fox's Chris Wallace called the administration “the biggest bunch of crybabies I have dealt with in my 30 years in Washington.” In true Obama style, it seems as if since he cannot stand the heat, he is staying out of the newsroom- literally. While all of the mainstream media (msm) are in the tank for their Messiah, the Fox News Channel is the only major network who is actually standing strong against this administration. Instead of pandering, slobbering, fainting and getting all tingly over the sight of our president, FNC is actually doing its job. Yet, this is the exact opposite of what the administration wants it to do. Sorry, Mr. President, but it doesn't look like Fox cares how much it hurts your feelings because they have a job to do in actually reporting the news.

When President Obama and crew took over the White House, I sure hope they brought along with them some boxes of pacifiers and blankets because the members of this administration have become a bunch of crybabies as Wallace was so correct in asserting above. It seems as if we live in an over emotional age in which everyone has become prone to whining and complaining. The members of the Obama Administration are responsible for this because they want everyone on a level playing field. If you work hard to purchase a home, then they want the same for the Henrietta Hugh's of this world. It doesn't matter how hard you worked for that house or car, everyone should get the same even if you didn't work for it. This "Can't we all just get along?" mentality goes for the media now too, I suppose.

Just imagine what would have happened if George W. Bush had complained about the treatment he received from the msm? Unlike Obama, he would have been attacked endlessly and accused of trying to get the media into his good graces. Yet, we live in the age of Obama in which he expects us to play by his rules and on his schedule. This is exactly what he expects, and the msm have already fallen head over heels. In the process of falling, any ounce of credibility remaining drained from their liberal bodies.

The America I know and love seems to have transformed into the land of Obama where we have only one option: Obama's way. In the land of Obama, journalists get awards for tearing other politicians down. In the land of Obama, journalists get thrills up their legs and tears in their eyes when they catch a glimpse of him. Oh, yeah, and I can't forget that in the land of Obama's, journalists get taught how to properly sneeze too. In this oh-so-wonderful Obama Utopian society, everyone is going to be "A-Okay" just as long as you play by the One's rules.

This latest stunt of taking on the Fox News Channel comes after "The New York Times" quoted White House Communications Director Anita Dunn who had this to say about Fox:

"We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”

As someone who studied journalism in college, I learned all about objectivity and fairness. My professors made sure to reinforce the importance of making sure to "always ask the tough questions," and to make sure to "always ask the five W's of journalism (who, what, when, where, why)." Furthermore, I was never taught that it was appropriate behavior to incite getting chills or tingles up any body part- but them again, I only went to San Diego State, not some liberal-leaning elite college like our president or the journalists I'm about to mention. It is very clear when the David Shusters, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermanns, Katie Courics, Norah O'Donnells, Rick Sanchez's, and Rachel Maddows of this world lost their way, as it is with so many other so-called journalists of today. One man changed how journalism will forever be seen, and his name is Barack Obama. As we saw during the 2008 presidential campaign, these journalists just couldn't get enough of Obama, and we continue to see the media in a trance-like state in which they feel that it is their duty to build him up.

I hate to break it to individuals like Ms. Dunn, but the media, ALL media should be your administration's opponents. The media are supposed to hold individuals accountable, but the Obama Administration views itself as an exception to the rule. What is this world coming to when individuals are no longer free to question? You see, the Obama Administration expects the media to be good little soldiers and walk in lock step with the administration as it does its dirty work. Yet, Fox is not going to fall prey to Obama and his Chicago way. In questioning the administration, Fox is doing the job that ALL journalists are supposed to do. These in-the-tank journalists are not stupid, for they know what they are doing. In appeasing to President Obama, these liberal journalists have foregone their station of reporting in favor of the handouts and glitz and glamour. In keeping in lock step with this president, these journalists are not only looking like idiots, but they are virtually killing their networks as more and more people are turning away from their tabloid journalism and setting their televisions to Fox.

By treating Fox as an opponent, Obama is going to find out just how powerful this network really is. Fox is #1 for a reason, and they go above and beyond to be fair and objective. Now, don't get me wrong, Fox is not perfect, but at least the majority of the facts of the day are shared with viewers, which is a far cry from the loony bin that is the msm. Maybe it's time for President Obama and his administration to take some much-needed advice of Sarah Palin and develop some thick skin. Not only was Sarah attacked unfairly and horrendously during the campaign, but she continues to be mocked and ridiculed just because she dares to question our president. When she is attacked, does she have a temper tantrum, then run and hide in a corner? No. She presses on and continues to stand up and speak out. Our president has yet to learn that the media's job is to report; after all, the news' media are not "People" or "Us Weekly," and last I checked, this was America, not Candy Land. We can't all have our way, so, Mr. President and friends, take those pacifiers out of your mouths, cheer up and in the words of Sarah, a true warrior, grow "some thick skin." For, until you do, you will find, just as there's no crying in baseball, there's no crying in Washington.

ObamaCare Advisor To Old People: "We’re Going To Let You Die!"

You think the democrat/communists don’t believe in death panels? Well think again! Here is Obama advisor Robert B. Reich talking about how he and the democrat/communists would handle things under Obamacare!

"We're going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive...so we're going to let you die."

Robert B. Reich

Anyone who is trying to fool themselves into believing this isn’t the mainstream thought in the democrat/communist party needs to wake up and smell the death panels!

Let’s look at this reject from the Nazi death camps, Obama’s very own Dr Mengele, his very own Dr Death, Dr Ezekiel Emanuel.

"Savings,, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008)

""Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years"

(Lancet, Jan. 31).

Dr Ezekiel Emanuel

As we wrote in an earlier piece:

Yeah, you heard that right. Dr. Death thinks that other doctors should just blow off their sacred Hippocratic Oath, for the "greater good!" I mean why give quality care to the old people, who worked all of their lives and made American the great nation it is, when someone younger might benefit more!

Dr. Death wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else. "Social justice" is a communist code phrase that basically means income or wealth distribution.

All of a sudden old Joe-the-Plumber isn’t looking so stupid anymore, is he! He too tried to warn America about Obama and his desire the "spread the wealth.

Emanuel believes that "communitarianism" should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those "who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia"

(Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. '96).

Translation: Don't give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson's or a child with cerebral palsy. Or children with Downs Syndrome. Gee, no wonder Sarah Palin doesn’t think very highly of this guy!

"The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."

Sarah Palin

Of course, Reich and Dr Death aren’t the only evil that exists in the democrat/communist party or the Obama administration. There is Cass Sunstein, the "Regulatory Czar" who is literally in charge of regulating everything in society on behalf of The Dear Leader, Obama.

Sunstein is a real piece of work who wants to ban hunting and fishing, and give animals the rights to have human lawyers and allow them to sue humans. Again, this guy is one of Obama’s more powerful appointees.

Thing is, as extreme, and insane, as that is, Sunstein has more to offer. This guy thinks the government should be able to remove your organs and transplant them into someone else without your consent! He sees no issue with this!

From CNS News

Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would "presume" someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken.

Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.

Outlined in the 2008 book "Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness," Sunstein and co-author Richard H. Thaler argued that the main reason that more people do not donate their organs is because they are required to choose donation.

Sunstein and Thaler pointed out that doctors often must ask the deceased’s family members whether or not their dead relative would have wanted to donate his organs. These family members usually err on the side of caution and refuse to donate their loved one’s organs.

"The major obstacle to increasing [organ] donations is the need to get the consent of surviving family members," said Sunstein and Thaler.

This problem could be remedied if governments changed the laws for organ donation, they said. Currently, unless a patient has explicitly chosen to be an organ donor, either on his driver’s license or with a donor card, the doctors assume that the person did not want to donate and therefore do not harvest his organs. Thaler and Sunstein called this "explicit consent."

They argued that this could be remedied if government turned the law around and assumed that, unless people explicitly choose not to, then they want to donate their organs – a doctrine they call "presumed consent."

"Presumed consent preserves freedom of choice, but it is different from explicit consent because it shifts the default rule. Under this policy, all citizens would be presumed to be consenting donors, but they would have the opportunity to register their unwillingness to donate," they explained.

The difference between explicit and presumed consent is that under presumed consent, many more people "choose" to be organ donors. Sunstein and Thaler noted that in a 2003 study only 42 percent of people actively chose to be organ donors, while only 18 percent actively opted out when their consent was presumed.

In cases where the deceased’s wishes are unclear, Sunstein and Thaler argued that a "presumed consent" system would make it easier for doctors to convince families to donate their loved one’s organs.

Not outrageous enough?

We’ve told you before about this guy too:

John Holdren, another refugee from the insane asylum, is Barack Obama’s "Science Czar." He is one of the wack job "progressives" who is consumed with population control. Consumed with it to the extreme. Holdren has written papers describing how we could put sterilants in the nation’s drinking water, as long as it didn’t harm animals, and achieve his goals. Holdren has also advocated forced abortions in the sterilants in the water thing doesn’t work out. He even thinks the United States Constitution would allow this! You can read all about Sunstein, Holdren, and a whole lot more, here.

Unfortunately, these guys are not fringe elements among the "progressive" democrat/communists, they are the ones leading the pack!

Then there is this idiot:

The actual reimbursement to doctors for amputating limbs is between $750 and $1000.

This is the so-called "leader of the free world" talking this nonsense! Unbelievable!

"Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. It’s inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

Sir Winston Churchill.

The bottom line is this, the people in charge of this nation are dangerous. They are destroying the nation’s economy, and if ObamaCare passes, they will destroy the nation’s population as well. I’ve never seen anything like this. These Ivy League "elites," who are educated way beyond their intelligence, should not be allowed to continue. And yes, this includes Barack Obama, he’s just as loopy as the rest of this bunch, and even more dangerous.

We already have this movie playing, on a smaller screen. RomneyCare in Massachusetts is a shining example of why ObamaCare will destroy America. They already have their death panels getting into high gear and open for business!

Oregon as well!

The democrat/communists are power mad control freaks. They want to be able to micro manage your entire life for you. These people actually think they know what is best, and since most Americans totally disagree with their sort, they want to FORCE you to comply.

That’s not the American way people. America was founded on individualism, on individual freedom and liberty. For the democrat/communist to get their way, that simply can’t be allowed.

America is the land of opportunity. The opportunity to realize all of your wildest dreams, and yes, America is also the land that also allows you to fail spectacularly! However, Americans understand that failure is nothing more than an opportunity to learn, and do it better the next time. In the democrat/communist world, this cannot be allowed either!

Job one is for every American to rise up and defeat ObamaCare. Do whatever it takes, but rise up and defeat it.

It’s a time for choosing. Do you want to be a slave, a "subject," or do you want to remain a free American?

Stand up for Our Nation... coming to a Link near you!

The Palination -- http://www.thepalination.com

Mudflats I told you I wasn't part of it.

But anyways. The Wall Street Journal's Washington Wire has a tidbit about it:

“There will be an announcement about it coming up,” Palin associate Tim Crawford said Wednesday.

The New York Post reported this week that Palin’s new group will be called “Stand Up For Our Nation.” (News Corp. owns both the Post and The Wall Street Journal as well as HarperCollins Publishers, publisher of Palin’s book.) Crawford, who is treasurer of Palin’s existing political-action committee, SarahPAC, refused to provide any details about the new organization’s purpose or structure.
FYI, If you haven't bought the book "Going Rogue" you probably won't know what is going on.  HEHE Liberals.... you gotta buy the book!

Sarah was right part 5: Russia allows Iran pre-emptive nukes.

by Upinak
The Palination -- http://www.thepalination.com

I spoke about Russia a few days ago concerning Iran and why Russia doesn’t seem to care and noted that something was amiss.

I was right. Russia said no to sanctions and now is ALLOWING pre-emptive nuclear to start in Iran. No regulations, no sanctions, nothing. What is Russia getting out of this deal I wonder?

Breitbart has some information:

The interview appeared in the daily Izvestia during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, as U.S. and Russian negotiators try to hammer out a nuclear arms reduction treaty by December. It also came amid grumbling in Moscow over U.S. moves to modify plans for a missile shield near Russia's borders rather than ditch the idea outright.

Patrushev said a sweeping document on military policy including a passage on preventative nuclear force will be handed to President Dmitry Medvedev by the end of the year, according to Izvestia.

Officials are examining "a variety of possibilities for using nuclear force, depending on the situation and the intentions of the possible opponent," Patrushev was quoted as saying. "In situations critical to national security, options including a preventative nuclear strike on the aggressor are not excluded."

As does Reuters:

"There is no need to frighten the Iranians," Putin told reporters in Beijing.

"We need to look for a compromise. If a compromise is not found, and the discussions end in a fiasco, then we will see," he said, adding that talks of sanctions was "premature" at present.

This stinks, worse then a dead elephant in the room. And what is worse is the fact that Obama is letting Russians visit our nuclear sites. WHY???? Via Foxnews.com:

Russia and the United States have tentatively agreed to a weapons inspection program that would allow Russians to visit nuclear sites in America to count missiles and warheads.

The plan, which Fox News has learned was agreed to in principle during negotiations, would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said publicly Tuesday that the two nations have made "considerable" progress toward reaching agreement on a new strategic arms treaty.

The 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires in December and negotiators have been racing to reach agreement on a successor.

Now what is START. Well there are two different type START 1 and START II. They are speaking about START II. But from the State.gov site here is what they have as the head:


Isn’t that interesting and now all of a sudden it seems that Russia wants to look into this. Putin has been around for a while, so why the “sudden interest”?  Well I think it has to do with that Russian and Iran alliance, that was done in 2005.  Yet no one really talked about it in the U.S. even now.

Is Sarah right about Missile Defense here at home.  Yes she was.  But is anyone listening? That is what I am concerned about.

The End of Heartless Capitalism

by NYPalinPower

Many of you know that I am an Independent. I take no political sides because I support the individual politician, the human being, and not the party ticket. I always ask myself, are these politicians sincere? Are they genuinely working for the good of the people they serve? I hold this standard higher than even policy decisions because to me it is the most important part of serving. Human ethics and goodwill today are at low ebb. One can't depend on the politician to vote only on good policy anymore because the votes are no longer controlled by one's own consciousness. They are controlled by a system of greed and selfishness. Politicians have lost the public's trust.

Washington is controlled by a mean, greedy financial machine. Our politicians are just puppets in a puppet show, they have no real power at all. They have lost control of the wheel and something terribly under the influence is driving! Both the Democrats and the Republicans are a part of this system. We don't have true public servants anymore, only self-interested and heartless politicians pretending to run our country.

Why am I saying this? And what does this have anything to do with Sarah Palin? Well I just saw Michael Moore's movie, "Capitalism: A Love Story". It was made in typical Moore style, offering his own slant on serious political issues along with some really funny comedy (he has to relieve us of the load he puts on us). I'm not generally a Michael Moore fan, but he is a "rogue" filmmaker and I really do like this movie. Granted he does point fingers at some politicians more than others in his typical bias way, but all in all the film has a lot of truth to it and is very relevant in the times we live in now. I think everybody regardless of party affiliation should go see it with an open mind and heart because it addresses a frightening problem we have in this country today, that Washington has little or no power left and it is way out of control. And they wonder why the people are getting a little angry?

Moore equates the term capitalism with the greed of the huge financial corporations of Wall Street and their power brokers, those he says are the main evildoers in our country. This is because our own politicians allowed this corruption to happen. I don't blame the corporations. They were just taking advantage of a very bad system that was more than happy to accommodate them. It's the politicians in Washington who created this system that has destroyed everything good about America. And unfortunately it's the people who are now suffering from this mess. This irresponsible and unethical behavior left scars on every American in this country.

So now the system is beginning to fall apart, and thank God for that! It is in absolute chaos now which I feel is a sort of a karmic payback. And I think that what we will begin to see as part of the healing process will be a major grassroots revolution. In the film Moore compares the fall of the Roman empire to where America is right now. I don't like that Moore is trying to turn the concept of capitalism into a destructive system, but truth be told its application and abuse over time has corrupted its original concept. As a small business owner, I would love true capitalism to succeed because I believe in healthy competition. Unfortunately, the capitalism of today is no longer what used to be. It's been slowly feeding upon itself and has now grown into a huge giant monster crushing the human being. There is something heartless and terribly wrong with the capitalism and politics of today. They are both inhumane. There must be a better way.

My real concern is that both parties seem to think they know in their own extreme ways the solutions to these problems. I don't believe that extreme in any form is the answer. This is why I don't like labels like conservative or liberal or right or left or Republican or Democrat. They don't leave much room for creativity or for freedom to work together for the whole. We are Americans, not Republicans or Democrats, and we need leaders to lead with wholeness and common sense solutions. It will take the very strong and good will of the people to force politicians to create newer and better systems that work in government that are also just and humane. But we don't need to do this by battling one another's ideologies. We don't need to fight each other or bully another or destroy the other side. There is no other side! We are all on one side. The only strength will come when we do the right thing in our hearts. So we need to be united together in this.

All evil is due to heartlessness. People know when they are in the game for themselves at the expense of others. Those who are fortunate can act with generosity and gratitude instead of greed. Those who have the great privilege of being an elected official can choose to serve with integrity instead of self-interest. The best thing in Moore's movie was watching the wonderful Congresswoman from Ohio, Marcy Kaptur stand up against the status quo. I would like to believe that she is an Independent at heart (even though she's always been a Democrat) because she stands up for what she believes is right for the people she serves and for her country, and she is not afraid to speak out against her own party. To me Marcy Kaptur is the hero of this movie. I once had the good fortune to meet her back in 1992 when she spoke at the United We Stand convention in Dallas. She was there supporting a very successful grassroots movement with third party Presidential candidate Ross Perot at the helm urging responsibility and reform in government. I admired her humane and ethical conduct and work ethic, and that always takes center stage in my book. She is a genuine leader and she serves from the heart. Which now brings me to Sarah Palin.

Sarah is also this kind of leader. And I hope she keeps an open and independent mind as she moves forward, following her own instincts and not the party line. I believe that with new ideas and new leadership in Congress, she can help in creating true and lasting prosperity for America. She already has a huge grassroots following and continues to attract more Independents and even some Democrats who are beginning to see her as that rare politician, a smart rogue outsider, which is what this country needs right now. And Sarah is naturally built for the job, she is fearless, but not heartless.
