Isn’t this what you expect from ‘Faux News’?

Venezuela to sue CNN

  Venezuela says it will file charges against US cable network CNN for linking President Hugo Chavez to Al Qaeda.

 Information Minister William Lara has presented what he says is CNN footage displaying pictures of Mr Chavez juxtaposed with those of an Al Qaeda leader.

Mr Lara says CNN also aired a story about the Venezuelan protests but used images taken in Mexico of an unrelated story.

“CNN broadcast a lie which linked President Chavez to violence and murder,” he said.

CNN has issued a statement strongly denying being “engaged in a campaign to discredit or attack Venezuela”.

The news network has acknowledged a video mix-up and “aired a detailed correction and expressed regret for the involuntary error”.

Isn’t it the left whom won’t believe or forgive Fox News when this happens? Honest mistakes can only apply to the left? Is that how it really works?

Regarding the Al Qaeda leader, the network says “unrelated news stories can be juxtaposed in a given program segment just as a newspaper page or a news website may have unconnected stories adjacent to each other”.

Well, I’ve seen the left ‘connect the dots’ and strongly state that it must be done on purpose when someone like Malkin does this.  Ulterior motives can only happen on the right?

We Are All in It Together, Clinton Says

Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

“shared responsibility “? So if my neighbor doesn’t earn as much as I then it’s partially my fault? “and prosperity”? Isn’t this nothing more than code for tax the rich and give to the poor? Why work if you can get everything you need by taking it from some sucka that likes to work?

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an ownership society really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

Rich people “may” be smarter. Maybe they can make better life decisions that lead to greater wealth. Maybe we should focus on educating the lower end so they can get out of their poverty. Taking money from the wealthy and giving to those that are undereducated won’t solve anything. Money can be squandered very easily.

“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said. “I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.”

Isn’t one of those reasons people want to get higher on that ladder of success is so they can have more privileges?  If you take the carrots away, then you also take away some of the drive that people have.

“There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed,” she said. “Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

Fairness does happen. Just as unfairness does too. What’s with the ‘protect our workers’? Are you just talking about the left or all working folks?

“We have sent a message to our young people that if you don’t go to college … that you’re thought less of in America. We have to stop this,” she said.

One of the biggest differences between an Officer and an Enlisted person in the military is the College Diploma. If you say that the diploma doesn’t have a better status, then can we get rid of officers? Just create one group or class in the military. Enlisted shouldn’t have to salute someone that is their equal. And for the civilian world, are you going to make it so employers stop requiring them? Not having them can make you feel inferior.  Yup, just kill all the incentives for spending four years in college. Brilliant.

Beyond education, Clinton said she would reduce special breaks for corporations, eliminate tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and open up CEO pay to greater public scrutiny.

I’ll agree with getting rid of those tax incentives and I’ll go one step further, have a disincentive in place. We have too many people unemployed and holding cardboard signs in this country to favor one from another.

Keep in mind the Income Tax was established just to get the rich to help support this country. And now look at it, most people pay taxes- not just the ‘rich’. What happened? Someone (congress?) wanted more money and changed the rules of who qualify for ‘rich’. Yup, we got suckered into that one! The question is, are we going to fall for it again? Be forewarned  anytime someone wants just the ‘rich’ to pay for anything. Someday, you may be considered ‘rich’. If you’re not willing to pay for it, or have your children pay for it (when the law changes), then don’t vote for it. Or in this case, Hillary.

“Good Riddance Attention Whore”

I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called “Face” of the American anti-war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such “liberal blogs” as the Democratic Underground. Being called an “attention whore” and being told “good riddance” are some of the more milder rebukes.

The wonderful peaceful left giving you a hard time? Nooooo waaaaay!

The first conclusion is that I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party. Of course, I was slandered and libeled by the right as a “tool” of the Democratic Party.

I hate to break it to you, but you were a tool. Look at the evidence around you. As long as you were useful, they liked you.

However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the “left” started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Here I am stuck in the middle with you.

It amazes me that people who are sharp on the issues and can zero in like a laser beam on lies, misrepresentations, and political expediency when it comes to one party refuse to recognize it in their own party. Blind party loyalty is dangerous whatever side it occurs on.

She nailed it right there! I’ve been complaining about this for ages!!!

 Our brave young men and women in Iraq have been abandoned there indefinitely by their cowardly leaders who move them around like pawns on a chessboard of destruction and the people of Iraq have been doomed to death and fates worse than death by people worried more about elections than people.

I like the way she words this. I saw an article where it said that when the military calls in to get an airstrike approved, they have lawyers sitting next to the approvers. Everything has to be cleared through legal first. And it’s no wonder we’re underperforming over there, it’s the lawyers fault!!!!

I’ve heard that friends can hurt you worse than the enemy. Be careful whom you chose as ‘friends’.


What say Danny Glover and Cindy Sheehan?

Venezuela’s Only Opposition TV Station Shut Down by Chavez

Venezuela’s oldest private television station was pushed off the air as President Hugo Chavez‘s government replaced the popular opposition-aligned network on Monday with a new state-funded channel.

And if Bush did this people would be outraged. I’m betting Chavez will get the green light from the lefties. Free speech is good only if it is in this country, right?

Radio Caracas Television shut down just before midnight Sunday as its broadcast license expired. Chavez refused to renew its license, accusing the channel of “subversive” activities.

I’d say the left has done far worse in this country and they haven’t been shut down. And people complain about Bush. Imagine if Chavez were in power here.

The new channel, TVES, launched its transmissions with artists singing pro-Chavez music, then carried an exercise program and a talk show, interspersed with government ads proclaiming, “Now Venezuela belongs to everyone.”

And whom did it belong to before? So, if this station is pro-government, can it get the ‘Faux’ label too?

Crowds of students took to the streets in Caracas to protest the move on Monday, saying they fear for the future of free speech.

But isn’t Chavez the pride and glory of the left? The same group here that is so concerned with rights and freedom?

“We’re defending our right to think differently from the government,” said Angelitz Yanez, 20, who joined several hundred students protesting at the Andres Bello Catholic University.

Other channels once critical of Chavez have toned down their coverage.

Gosh, I wonder why. But the left should be happy now, right? I’m betting Cindy and Danny will be quiet on this issue. Didn’t Danny just get some funding to make some movies for Chavez? If he had any standards he’d cancel his offer until the freedoms he holds so dear are returned. Praise Chavez while he bashes your President and if he does something wrong… remain silent. Just love those ‘moral values’ they hold.

Al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri Urges Iraqis to Take Jihad to Other Middle Eastern Countries

The deputy leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has urged supporters in Iraq to extend their “holy war” to other Middle Eastern countries.

No way! Those ‘peace loving’ Muslims want a ‘holy war’? Get out of here!
He conjures a vision of an Islamic state comprising Lebanon, Palestine and Syria, where Al Qaeda has already gained its first footholds.

What happened to fighting ‘for’ their Palestinian brethren? Now it’ll be fighting against them. Why?

The goal of an Islamic “greater Syria,” first outlined by Zawahiri two years ago, is detailed in the letter amid growing concern about the activities of new groups under Al Qaeda’s influence in the countries concerned.

Oh, I see now. So much for wanting to create a Palestinian State like everybody has been trying to do for decades.

Can you anti-war folks finally see that it’s not just about us? Or our troops in Iraq? Or for the Palestinians? If we leave Iraq now, guess how much more the middle east will get screwed up. And how much you will pay for that gallon of gas at the pumps. You’re a fool if you think they’ll stop with ‘Greater Syria’. Saudi Arabia and other nations friendly to us will fall as well. It is much better to fight them now while they are fairly weak then to wait until they get a strong foothold everywhere. You think the 3,000+ people we’ve lost now is a big number, wait until then.


Those ‘Restraining Orders’ Work Sooooo Well

New York Woman Shot Dead by Husband She Had Court Order of Protection Against

A man accused of shooting his wife dead in their bagel shop was ordered to give up guns six months earlier, a prosecutor said.

But Anderson apparently had or got another gun, and he used it to shoot his 39-year-old wife in the head five times early Friday morning at Super Bagel in Huntington…

Those gun laws work so well for criminals, no?

The order of protection against Robert Anderson didn’t include the bagel shop, authorities said.

A bit of an oversight? Do you think it would have helped if it was included? Murder is illegal and he still did it. At this point, the law doesn’t matter. If someone wants to kill, they’ll find a way.
