Media Watch---Please FACT CHECK

When will the corporate media allow journalists and reporters to do their jobs? The job starts with FACT CHECKING....The Republicans are dispersing a bunch of talking points that are FALSE...and the corporate media is once again becoming a fascist neo-con propaganda machine...simply reporting false accusations.

1--The White House wants the Democratic Congress labeled a "do nothing"'s the Republican party who are putting the brakes on legislative activities. IF Congress does pass a decent bill King George is threatening to VETO.

2--The White House is reporting PROGRESS with the Bush Surge. FALSE--Insurgent attacks are higher now than they were pre-surge...and the Iraqi government has not met a single bench mark. The White House desperately wants the American people to think progress is being made so they can continue this war. The White House is already acting like the September deadline means nothing....They want another "new" deadline set for Spring. Once again the same old spin just to keep this war going on and on and on....while the American people continue to die and go heavier and heavier into death. And for what? So George Bush and Dick Cheney can save face and continue to collect war time profits for themselves and their cronies?

3--The White House is still itching to attack Iran so they continue to state that Iran is "meddling" in Iraq's affairs. This is partially true. However, they do not mention that the BIGGEST MEDDLER are Bush and Cheney's favorite Middle East nation--Saudi Arabia. The Saudi's are increasing their support (with manpower and material support) of the Sunni's....the very insurgents attacking our troops on a daily basis. In addition, the Bush White House has just discovered a Saudi bank and a Saudi family financing Al Qaeda...and they have decided to do nothing about it. Yet with the latest Bush executive order they will immediately confiscate an American citizen's property and cash assets if Bush thinks they are subverting the Iraqi war effort. And now Bush and Cheney want to sell the Saudi's more military hardware....military hardware that "could" make it's way into Iraq and be used against our troops. Heckuva job Bushie.

The corporate media has shown that all it will do is spread propaganda. The corporate media helped us get into this war with propaganda and they are going to continue the propaganda to keep us in this war....

So American's need to continue to shout out to the Congress to SUPPORT OUR TROOPS AND STOP THE WAR NOW!!

When you want factual news check out where you can access the daily report via video, audio, or transcripts. And of course, continue to check out "reputable blogs." Beware that the neo-cons have recently begun an onslaught into the blogosphere and are now supplying talking points to various right wing blogs.....They continue to believe the endless repetition will once again sell falsehoods as truth to the American people.

Please don't drink the Kool Aid folks. Remember that recent history shows that if the White House is making a statement it is probably false......don't believe anything unless you fact check it yourself.

Media Watch: Bill Maher--The Decider

Warning: The following video contains profanity and references to sex. I should also mention it is hilarious. Enjoy....If you want to see the rest of the show you can get it here....

The comics are doing better commentaries than any of the political "pundits." You know the pundits who have been getting it wrong for a long time now. Why are these "pundits" who are so wrong still on the air? Oh corporate must think we are so stupid.....

Watch Gonzalez commit perjury.....Start the Impeachment NOW

Let's see....Congress actually started impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton for lying under oath (about a personal "affair" which killed no one and did not cost the tax payer's a single penny)

So here we have another instance of Gonzalez lying under oath about a government program that is unconstitutional and supplies a solid foundation for impeaching the President of the United States. So when will Congress finally start impeachment proceedings against Gonzalez?

CNN Censored the Democratic Presidential Debate

The number one question that the people of the USA wanted the Democratic candidates to answer--would they impeach? This is the question that got the greatest number of votes.

Why does the media continue to REFUSE to Fact Check the White House "False Statements." Why does the media give the Bush Cabal a license to lie without any checks and balances from our fourth estate? Is it because corporate media will get higher profits under a fascist ruler?

IF impeachment does not occur the next President will have the same unbalanced power....Our democracy depends on checks and balances. Congress needs to honor it's oath to "protect" the constitution and stop funding the Iraq War. Then we can support our troops, bring them home AND restore and preserve our democracy.

Bush's New Executive Order

Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq

Message to the Congress of the United States Regarding International Emergency Economic Powers Act

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, as amended (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.)(IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.)(NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that, due to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by acts of violence threatening the peace and stability of Iraq and undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq and to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people, it is in the interests of the United States to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, and expanded in Executive Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, and relied upon for additional steps taken in Executive Order 13350 of July 29, 2004, and Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004. I hereby order:

Section 1. (a) Except to the extent provided in section 203(b)(1), (3), and (4) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(1), (3), and (4)), or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted prior to the date of this order, all property and interests in property of the following persons, that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of United States persons, are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense,

(i) to have committed, or to pose a significant risk of committing, an act or acts of violence that have the purpose or effect of:

(A) threatening the peace or stability of Iraq or the Government of Iraq; or

(B) undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people;

(ii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, logistical, or technical support for, or goods or services in support of, such an act or acts of violence or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(iii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section include, but are not limited to, (i) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order, and (ii) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 2. (a) Any transaction by a United States person or within the United States that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 3. For purposes of this order:

(a) the term "person" means an individual or entity;

(b) the term "entity" means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term "United States person" means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 4. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the type specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 and expanded in Executive Order 13315, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 5. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that, because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render these measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 and expanded in Executive Order 13315, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to section 1(a) of this order.

Sec. 6. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order. The Secretary of the Treasury may redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States Government, consistent with applicable law. All agencies of the United States Government are hereby directed to take all appropriate measures within their authority to carry out the provisions of this order and, where appropriate, to advise the Secretary of the Treasury in a timely manner of the measures taken.

Sec. 7. Nothing in this order is intended to affect the continued effectiveness of any rules, regulations, orders, licenses, or other forms of administrative action issued, taken, or continued in effect heretofore or hereafter under 31 C.F.R. chapter V, except as expressly terminated, modified, or suspended by or pursuant to this order.

Sec. 8. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right, benefit, or privilege, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, instrumentalities, or entities, its officers or employees, or any other person.

Media Watch--CNN

Now that we know CNN understands the concept of fact checking....they did "fact check" Michael Moore's Sicko movie....Viola they only got two facts wrong in their report and CNN has now concluded that all the facts in the Sicko movie are correct.

So why doesn't CNN FACT CHECK the spin that the White House is spewing concerning the latest NIE--National Intelligence Evaluation--report? Things look bad in Iraq...but the White House is confusing the facts and this is confusing the average American citizen.

I bet the average American citizen does not know that al-Qaeda comprises only 2-5% of the opposition forces our soldiers are fighting in Iraq. And Bush, Cheney, et al do NOT want the average American to know that the MAJORITY of FOREIGN Fighters in Iraq fighting US soldiers are from Saudi Arabia, allegedly an American ally. In fact Saudi Arabia has done more to fight our soldiers than anyone else (and this includes Iran).

Personally I'm sick of the Bush/Cheney lies and the fact that they are getting richer and sacrificing nothing over this war.

When will the media report that VP Cheney made a 3,000 percent profit on his Halliburton stock options last year? In one year for every $1,000 Cheney invested he got a return of $3,000,000. No wonder Cheney is dead set on invading Iran.

When will the media get to work, stop broadcasting the White House propaganda and start doing some basic Fact Checking where it counts.....on people in power?


It's Political and it's Edgy...The Most Popular You Tube Ever!!

Holding up Truth to Lies.....Impeach Cheney AND Bush NOW!!!

Listen to the Soldiers...STOP THE FILLIBUSTER

Lindsay Graham and Joseph Lieberman never really talk to the soldiers. Graham prefers to take the Bushite's Dog and Pony Show Tour of Iraq; then he doesn't have to face the reality. I wonder if either of them will take this soldier up on his offer....To be by his side while he does his tour so they can get a dose of reality.

So here it is...4 minutes in an average day for a U.S. Soldier in Iraq.

SHAME on every Senator who blocked Webb's Amendment to see that servicemen could get the necessary R&R they need between tours of duty in Iraq!!

Senator Warner--Talk is Cheap

Senator Warner is doing a little movement on the public relations front but the bottom line is this--

Talk is Cheap! Senator Warner is continuing to vote along the Bush/Cheney party line and is not acting in a way to block this Bush Republican Filibuster. He is aiding the Bushites in not "exposing" the Senators who are preventing the American people's elected representatives from voting on the Iraq war.

The "principle" behind the Republican filibuster is to protect Bush so he can continue to steer the same incompetent course under the new name of the week.

I'll be glad for 2008 when we can replace another VA Senator with someone who will choose NOT to represent a few right wing extremist neo cons and will work to represent the best interests of their constituents..

Media Watch: Tucker Carlson has got it wrong again....

Why does the lamestream corporate media continue to allow pundits airtime who have proven themselves to be "wrong" and irrational again and again?

Yesterday, Tucker Carlson was arguing that Senator Vitter should be allowed "privacy" and not be questioned about "personal matters." Senator Vitter has positioned himself publicly as a defender of the sanctity of marriage and boasts that he co-wrote the Federal Marriage Amendment. According to Vitter, "This is a real outrage. The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history, and our two U.S. senators won't do anything about it," he said in a statement on his campaign Web site. "We need a U.S. senator who will stand up for Louisiana values, not Massachusetts values." (Source)

Now we discover that Senator Vitter was a customer of the DC Madam and also is alleged to have been a supporter of prostitutes in Louisiana.

I say what's good for the goose is good for the gander. If you are a politician who believes that sex between consenting adults is a private (not a governmental, legal matter) matter then I agree....your sex life should be "private." But if you are a politician who wants the government to police and judge the sex lives of it's citizens....then you're sex life should be held in the same public light and public standards that you advocate for others.

Now why is this concept so difficult for Tucker Carlson to understand...Instead, he wants to label progressives who are holding Senator Vitter to Vitter's "standards" hypocrites.

Well Carlson...what's good for the goose is good for the gander and it's only honest that Vitter's "sanctity of marriage standards" should apply to him.

It's no gay people who want to enjoy the sanctity of marriage who are destroying it. It's heterosexual hypocrites who need to clean up their own messy nests. And when "sanctity of marriage" public figures are caught under the wrong covers then it is NOT a private matter.

Some Refuse to Change

Some Fools just never learn....Is anyone else as "sick and tired" of the likes of Joseph Lieberman and Lindsay Graham....I swear I have to change the channel or else I'll puke!! (Except for the Jim Webb and Lindsay Graham encounter on Meet the Press...It's so nice to have a distinguished Senator instead of a puppet representing me. Too bad Tim Russert is a puppet himself. He can't bring himself to be a truth teller and say "occupation" instead of Bush's war word spin.

Did Sunday's Corporate Media....

For those of you still watching the Sunday morning "pundits." The same folks who have gotten it so wrong for so long and continue to get it wrong....They actually promoted going to war in Iraq without fact checking the Republican propaganda and asking the hard questions. Folks like Robert Novak, Wolf Blitzer, Chris Mathews, et al.....They are quick to jump on anyone who offers an alternative to the Bush and/or corporate plan. Most recently this could be evidenced by Wolf Blitzer and the CNN attack on Michael Moore.....the Michael Moore who fact checks his documentaries meticulously and offers us alternatives to explore and discuss.

If you are still watching the same pundits " who get it wrong but keep mouthing the corporate propaganda"....answer me this....Did anyone come as close to speaking the truth today as this stand up comic?

It's a sad day for journalism and the "free press" when the comediennes do a better job of reporting than the "corporate pundits....." Maybe if folks stop watching the propaganda pundits the corporate media (anxious to keep advertisers might actually hire some genuine, competent journalists to start giving us some accurate news reports for a change.

In the meantime, I suggest you watch independent journalists such as Amy Goodman on Democracy Now. You might also subscribe to DISH network ( NOT Rupert Murdoch's satellite company) where you will get access to two channels on the basic program...FSTV and LINKTV which has a number of sound news programs and good commentaries and documentaries. Democracy Now is available on the web as are some of the programs at FSTV and LINKTV.

A Gone But They Wish We Forgot Bush Moment...


If you didn't watch Bill Moyers on July 13th you can get the video and the transcripts here.

I strongly recommend that you watch this important report on Impeachment and the reasons why it is a vital safeguard for American Democracy.

Bush continues with the Nepotism....

Bush continues the nepotism in the face of public criticism of his Presidential performance . It makes sense if you are aware that Bush rules like he's a Saudi king and can not lead as a U.S. President!

In the latest appointment of nepotism, Bush is sending his nephew, George Prescott Bush, to be part of the U.S. delegation at the Pan American games, despite the total lack of experience and qualifications for such an endeavor. G. P. Bush has no diplomatic nor athletic experience. (Source)

Wouldn't my tax dollars be better spent sending a qualified American citizen who is an athlete to be part of this delegation? Why should a wealthy Bush relative get some free jet setting vacation at my expense?

Maybe Bush is trying to set his nephew up to get some "experience" on his resume since the Republican neo-cons see this nephew as "their" version of John F. Kennedy Jr. He's allegedly handsome and a "heart throb." (Source) (But he's no John Kennedy!)

So don't fall too fast for the wealth and the looks, young Republican women. It appears that George P. Bush has a police record. He broke into the window of the bedroom of a former girlfriend, argued with the girl's father, fled the scene, and then returned to run over the family's yard in his Ford Expedition. What makes this really "creepy" is this was no juvenile incident occurring during the high school years.....This occurred while George P. Bush was a Rice University student. It must be a Bush family tradition to teach the Bush children that they can get away with breaking the laws if they belong to the Bush Royal Family? (Source)

Wonder if the family will make sure his police record is buried when this one decides to run for office?

Better Late Than Never John Warner

John Warner exemplifies the extremes that better late than never can take. I'm still upset that he never fulfilled his promise to hold hearings on the torture policy.

But Warner is taking a baby step away from the President who thinks he's a King with the Warner- Lugar Iraq Amendment. Hopefully Warner will be able to influence Sen. Spector (R-PA) to join him....then maybe they can start to walk their own walk and lead this Republican party to a more moderate and conservative stance and lessen the right wing neo-con extremists' choke hold on our country.

Better yet....Take a giant step and support the troops by agreeing to co-sponsor the Webb Amendment Senator Warner. Maybe then you will receive enough feedback to realize you need to vote for a date to withdraw the troops so we can "heal" our military and prepare for a new commander-in-chief to launch an effective and competent war on terrorism that is based on truth not delusional lies....

Video: Looking Into the Heart of Darkness

Here is a very disturbing video that is a snapshot of just one GI and his inadvertently testifying to crimes against humanity in Iraq. Click on the title of the article or (click here).

Multiply his mindset and actions by a couple of hundred thousand and you will get a good idea of the magnitude of death and destruction the American military has visited upon the Iraqi people, whom we profess to be liberating. Obviously, another darker, psychological agenda is at work here.

This is what happens when ethics are abandoned in the military. The slow slide into Hell is assured after that. The destruction of the innocent is like a curse, setting in motion the self-destruction of those men and their institutions who perpetuate these crimes. General Douglas MacArthur understood this, and had this to say:

"The soldier, be he friend or foe, is charged with the protection of the weak and unarmed. It is the very essence and reason for his being. When he violates this sacred trust, he not only profanes his entire cult but threatens the very fabric of international society. The traditions of fighting men are long and honorable. They are based upon the noblest of human traits - sacrifice."

-General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, 1946, confirming the death by hanging sentence imposed by a United States military commission on General Tomayuki Yamashita, convicted of failing to prevent Japanese Imperial troops under his command from committing massacres and outrages against prisoners of war and civilians in the last stages of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines.

This is why the American military must clean house rapidly as well as protect and distance itself from the diseased degeneracy of the White House and its inhabitants who have led us to this horrific point in our history.

Wake UP!!

The Corporations continue their never ending march to control and profit over everything.

Senator Jim Webb supports net neutrality and Senator John Warner still has not told his constituents how he plans to represent them.....remember net neutrality is something that everyone's constituents (be they left, middle, or right on the political spectrum) wants protected. It's the corporations who want to control the internet, our free speech on the internet....etc... etc...

Contact Warner and ask him to respond to you in writing with his net neutrality position. Hopefully, you won't get a letter filled with telecommunications talking points.

It is important to contact the FCC NOW (deadline is looming) to protect net neutrality on wireless devices (the computerland of our future!!)

MEDIA WATCH--Hardball Chris Mathews has a conflict of interest.....

Chris Mathews has been on the list of Media Watch Organization for numerous infractions over the years....

Now he's being exposed once again. Why does Chris Mathews continue to give Ann Coultier air time to spew hate speech with the latest example of suggesting that a terrorist should assassinate a democratic presidential contender.... (She should have been arrested and charged for this offense since she would have been arrested and charged if she had suggested someone should assassinate Bush or Cheney. The double standards of corporate America are mind boggling aren't they?)

So why does Chris Mathews give Ann Coultier air time? Chris Mathews has the same publisher as Ann Coultier. They are both connected with Random House. Coultier can't sell her nasty inaccurate books without air time. Maybe Chris Mathews needs to provide air time to various authors in order to get published.... Talk about a conflict of interest interfering with his news show. Now that is what you would call a WHOPPER of a coincidence.

Have you ever taken the time to read a Chris Mathews book? I tried me his books are not top of the line. I continue to wonder why Chris Mathews has a talk show he has been so wrong on so many issues and events over the last several years.

The pundits have been so wrong for so long I don't even bother to watch their nonsense and propaganda anymore. It's nice to have my Sunday mornings used for more fruitful pursuits.

Here's the source

Sicko Power

Sicko is changing minds down in Texas....Read it here.

Television for those who give a crap....

Wake Up Hampton Roads is a great source of independent journalism covering local stories in the Hampton Roads Region. At this point in time, the star, executive producer, and writer are all one person, Alma Kessling. Already, Alma is already challenging the local TV news broadcast in the quality and content departments.

Alma has long been active in local politics and her focus is where she lives....Norfolk, Va. Alma is also an active member of Hampton Roads Independent Media Coalition. there are plans in the works to expand the "focus" on stories in other cities.

Finally, a news program that is willing to concentrate on something more than the latest murder, robbery, car accident, and actually "report" on what our elected representatives are doing and who they are doing it with........We need to know what bills are coming up and how they impact our better believe the corporate elites are on top of this information all the time...and if it favors a corporate elite...well your wallet just got skinnier...

So check out Wake Up Hampton then ask yourself why doesn't Cox TV allow this program on the "local" public channel that is supposed to be there for use by the community for community news.

Media Watch--The New York Times is at it again....

The New York Times "admitted" that it's coverage on encouraging an Iraqi invasion was seriously flawed. However, the NYT is allowing one of the culprits of that period--Michael R. Gordon--to repeat the same erroneous process and beat the drums with lies to help Cheney and Bush have their dreams come true--invading Iran.

Seriously, if you are a subscriber to the New York Times you should cancel your subscription. If you are a journalist on tv news or print you should lamblast the New York Times for repeating the Iraq errors once again.

We need responsible citizens and journalists to stand up against the corporate media lies.

Bush the hypocritical, immoral President lets his criminal friend off the hook...

The Pensito Review exposes Bush's favoritism for his cronies. Last Year, Bush filed a motion to the court to uphold the 30-month sentence of a 24-year Marine Corps Veteran--Victor Rita. He was convicted of the same crimes as Scooter Libby.

It pays to be a Bush get hired to do jobs even when you lack experience and competency....and if you get caught being a criminal you get pardoned by the Prez.....but if you are a regular American citizen the Bush Cabal will throw the book at you..Bush is going to make sure none of his pals talk about the crimes of Bush and Cheney.

Won't Congress do it's job and impeach this President, Vice President, and Attorney General? Currently there is rule of law or justice in the USA as long as these cretins remain in office.

George Orwell Rolls OVer in His Grave

If you have Dish Network Satellite TV you not only have access to TWO progressive TV Channels--FSTV and LINK TV--you are also NOT supporting Rupert Murdock....Here's a clip from one fo the shows from a progressive TV Channel....Enjoy....

Joe Blow Hard Lieberman is at it again..

Joseph Lieberman is at it again....blowing hard on the trumpet for Tricky Dick Cheney and George Bush. Spreading an outright propagandistic lie across our land....According to Joe Blow Hard....Iran is intent on attacking America.

I can imagine how an ordinary citizen apeaking such nonsense might end up on a psychiatric ward for an assessment. How has Joe Lieberman and his pals--Tricky Dick and George--managed to escape a psychological assessment for so long?

In the meantime I feel sorry for the CT citizenry. They must be the same way any educated citizenry would be embarrassed. In the same way, many Virginians were embarrassed by our former Senator George Allen. If someone from CT is not embarrassed by Joe Lieberman...then, I'm embarrassed for you.
