N.Y. Times editorial board:
Obama administration
threatening press freedom

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 5/22/2013 8:31:26 AM

The New York Times editorial board has condemned the Obama administration for threatening press freedom in the wake of revelations that the Justice Dept. seized phone records belonging to Fox News reporter James Rosen. "With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible ´co-conspirator´ in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news," the board wrote in an editorial published on Wednesday. Noting past Obama administration intrustions into press freedom, including the Justice Dept.´s

So what? The immigration bill will pass and Democrats will now hold the deferral government in perpetuity.

This is the new norm NYTimes... You made it.

The NY Slimes is just providing cover for obama. The know nothing will be done to stop him so they just throw this out there to look like they are real journalists. In fact they probably support everything he has done. They would love it if obama could get total control of the press then they would have no competition.

But to the NY TIMES they prefer a corrupt, liberal, Democrat government than any conservative. They prefer an unconstitutional, lawless president than a conservative.

Put up Obama against any Republican and all the NY Times liberals would once again vote for Obama. And there lies our problem. With liberals ideology reigns. Lawlessness and unconstitutionality with liberalism is much preferred over honesty and strict interpretation of our Constitution.

It does not matter what happens. Nothing will happen to Obama. The press who still love him and the low information people will still protect him and nothing will happen to him. Oh, our country will be completely gone, it will be free no more, but they will not even know it is happening until it is way, way too late to do anything about it. Give up folks. There is no going back and to go forward is disaster.

Suddenly they got religion?

"The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration,...

S´cuse me? What "assaults" were those? Did I sleep thru Bush´s assaults on our civil liberties?

The NYT´s knows that if Obama´s free speech attacks are not stopped, that they will be next. Obama has no friends except those who help him squash everyone´s freedom so that he can then burn the Constitution´s 23rd amendment and be dictator for life.

The end result of all O is doing is absolute power concentrated in his hands. It really is that simple and the NYT may just be aware of this. Finally.

Don´t kid yourself. Obama will make some bland mea culpa while shifting the blame to someone else and the very same NYT will be in awe of him once more telling breathlessly how this great man took the blame for some underlings stupidity.

A good strategic NYT move. Now, "they´re on the record", having said one honest thing.
What the Slimes writes for the rest of the year will be the same abominable socialist propaganda. So this editorial board noble statement is meaniningless in truth. The NYT
protects greed packed, crazed, criminalized Washington DC, in exactly the same insane manner as the many Diane Sawyer TV news actors offer daily cover-up for all of bad Congress and their millions of useless non essential bureaucrats. Today, bureaucrat Lois Lerner, acts like a mafia kingpin and "takes the fifth", knowing she can bribe her way out of this hearing sham in exactly the same smart way mobsters do it.

At the end of the day, the TIMES will still support Obama like the lickspittles that they are. They are free to complain, now that the election is over and their guy is once again ensconced in the White House. They dont want him and his administration removed, they just want the administration to leave them alone.

And trust me.......if the election was tomorrow, the TIMES would still endorse Obama over the facist Romney /s/ and still endorse the entire democrat slate.

And finally, it´s easy to complain when the entire media universe is on the same bandwagon. But instead of blaming the source, they continue to find other excuses.

republicans, the IRS tax code itself, sequester . . . etc

And when you read comments at the end of negative articles, the moonbats still blame Bush, Bush was worse, FOX news is a criminal enterprise that fabricates news and the TEA Party activists are subversives that should be outlawed.

Obama, unfortunately, will ride this storm out. The NYT will thump their shaved, metrosexual chests in feigned outrage. Then they will begin to create the Cover of the Underlings. After all, The Won is a reformer, a fundamental changer of government. He is above the machinations the mere mortals that are carrying out policy in a more traditional fashion.

The Won stands above it all. Outraged, he denounces the worshippers who serve him. Disappointed, he demands resignations from people who are on their way out of government. Partisan, he casts blame at the culture of Washington in the wake of his predecessor G.W. Bush. Blameless, he makes statements like "let me be clear," or "this goes against our American tradition of honest government."

In the end the NYSlimes will forgive and abet. And The Won will skate by as the LoFo voters seek ways to circumvent the 22nd Amendment.

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t
just about being nice to people
Telegraph U.K., by Tim Stanley    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:48:54 AM     Post Reply
Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million this year to build a nationwide grassroots network on gun control in a direct challenge to the National Rifle Association, The New York Times reported. The new lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety, will encompass other gun control groups funded by Bloomberg, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the report said. Bloomberg told the Times the strategy will focus on expanding the background check system for gun buyers at the state and national levels. He made nearly $14 million in federal campaign contributions for

Obama’s Whistling Lap Dog

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean (D) says Democrats would be in strong position to win back the U.S. House majority this year if not for the troubled rollout of the federal health-care Web site last fall. "I think we would have won the House had the Web site not collapsed," Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in a brief interview with Post Politics Tuesday evening. He called the battle for the House a "struggle" for Democrats but predicted the party would retain control of the Senate. The flawed rollout of the health-care Web site "was a problem because we had

Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
