Truman Won--Big Media Lost

Truman Won--Big Media Lost

The Comeback Kid – John McCain, Harry Truman, Barack Obama, Thomas Dewey

The American people are now paying attention and will vote their pocketbooks.

Expect record turnout of voters and long lines.

The big disappointment was the extent to which big media favored Barack Obama.

The staggering number and bias of the polls was used to manipulate and discourage voters that were Independents, undecided and those that were leaning towards McCain to not even bother to come out and vote.

Most ignored the polls and were motivated to show big media how wrong they were.

Independents were turned off by the arrogance of Barack Obama and his desire to share their wealth or income, instead of letting individuals and families keep their hard earned money.

Conservatives will vote for Palin and against Obama who they view as a radical socialist.

Libertarians did not like any of the candidates but voted for McCain over a radical socialist Marxist and decided not to waste their vote on Bob Barr. Many still wanted Ron Paul.

All voters were concerned about their jobs and found Obama proposed tax increases as a direct threat to their employers who would have to lay off employees as well as higher taxes resulting in higher prices for all goods and services. The price of bread, corn, milk and groceries in general and gasoline are still putting a dent in most people’s pocketbooks.

Obama also wants to increase you electricity bills with a new cap and trade tax. Over 50% of the electricity in the United States is coal generated and less than 1% is generated by solar or wind, so-called alternative energy.

As much as they would like to punish big spending Republicans, family values are still important among the Republican base.

The American people again preferred a divided government.

Somebody needs to veto all the spending bills Congress will pass.

McCain will get 50% of the popular vote nationally.

Obama will get 48% of the popular vote nationally.

McCain will get 278 electorial votes.

Obama will get 260 electorial votes.

Congratulations to all who voted.

Voter turnout wil hit a new record of about 64%.

2012 will be a very interesting race for the Democrats who will need to move to the center and the Republicans who will need to move to their right to win.

Electoral College

The Electoral College consists of 538 popularly elected representatives who formally select the President and Vice President of the United States.[1] In 2008, it will make this selection on December 15. The Electoral College is an example of an indirect election.

Rather than directly voting for the President and Vice President, United States citizens cast votes for electors. Electors are technically free to vote for anyone eligible to be President, but in practice pledge to vote for specific candidates[2] and voters cast ballots for favored presidential and vice presidential candidates by voting for correspondingly pledged electors.[3] Most states allow voters to choose between statewide slates of electors pledged to vote for the presidential and vice presidential tickets of various parties; the ticket that receives the most votes statewide ‘wins’ all of the votes cast by electors from that state. U.S. presidential campaigns concentrate on winning the popular vote in a combination of states that choose a majority of the electors, rather than campaigning to win the most

Audio: Obama will bankrupt the coal industry

By Michelle Malkin 

Sundy morning buzz: Everyone’s sending me the audio clip now up on YouTube of Obama telling the San Francisco Chronicle he’ll make it impossible for new coal plants to be built. The interview took place in January. The YouTube user is NakedEmperorNews, who uploaded Obama’s redistribution of wealth interview.

Bankrupty: The change Obama thinks the coal industry deserves…”

The truth serum in San Francisco

By Michelle Malkin 

“…This morning, I joked on Fox and Friends that San Francisco acts like a truth serum on Barack Obama. It’s where he trashed western Pennsylvanians as Bible-thumping racists clinging to their guns and religion. And it’s where he told the SF Chronicle that he plans to bankrupt coal companies and engineer huge energy price shocks to save the planet. (background links here and here)

Allah clipped the F&F video — watch here — and notes that Sarah Palin riffed on Obama’s San Francisco candor this morning:

“There must be something about San Francisco,” she said. “I heard on Fox News today, it’s like a truth serum where when he’s there, he seems to be more candid.”

It was at a San Francisco fundraiser earlier this year that Obama got into trouble, suggesting rural voters “cling to religion and guns” because jobs were being lost. Palin referred to them Monday as “bitter clingers” and “cling-ons.” (There goes the Star Trek vote?)

And it was Obama’s comments to the San Francisco Chronicle on fees for coal emissions that brought on Palin’s most recent attacks.

“So he’s talking to the San Francisco Chronicle, and he says that sure, if industry wants to try to build these coal-fired power plants, they can go ahead and try, but they’re only gonna be able to do it in a way that bankruptcies the whole industry, the coal industry,” she said. “Now he’s comfortable with this happening.” …”

Obama’s brags his ‘Cap and Trade’ plan will ‘bankrupt’ coal plant builders

Rick Moran

“Change we can freeze to death by:

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

These remarks were made by Obama on January 17 of this year. Not surprisingly this audio was hidden until now because the interview was with the far left San Francisco Chronicle. …”

Absence of Malice: Hearing Scene, Part 2 of 2

 

Ethics

Walter William’s Journalist’s Creed

This creed was written by Walter Williams (1864-1935), the man who founded the world’s first school of journalism at the University of Missouri and perhaps contributed more toward the promotion of professional journalism than any other person of his time. 

I believe in the profession of Journalism.

I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of lesser service than the public service is a betrayal of this trust.

I believe that clear thinking, clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.

I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true. I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.

I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by one’s own pocket book is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.

I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should alike serve the best interests of readers; that a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that supreme test of good journalism is the measure of its public ser vice.

I believe that the journalism which succeeds the best-and best deserves success-fears God and honors man; is stoutly independent; unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power; constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of the privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance, and as far as law, an honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship, is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.

Joe The Plumber

 

Many in the big media are blindly supporting Obama by deliberately not asking questions that should have been asked a long time ago and with their answers included in their publications and television shows.

These journalists should read the above code of ethics especially the part that says:

I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of lesser service than the public service is a betrayal of this trust.

Shame on big media, they are an utter disgrace to their profession for what they did to Joe the Plumber.

They lived up to their name, the pump and dump drive-by mainstream media.

They were in dump mode once Joe the plumber by asking a question that Senator Obama answered that revealed he was a socialist who wanted to “…spread the wealth around.”

For asking questions of Senator Obama in Joe’s own neighborhood and because the phrase, “spread the wealth around” was repeated in the McCain/Obama debates, big media went after Joe the plumber by trying to find anything and everything that might be considered embrassing to discredit him.

Instead of investigating the background of Senator Obama, the Democratic Party candidate for President of the United States, and the radical socialists and communists he sought out and allied himself with both in college and later in Chicago, they went after the plumber.

Thanks to Andrew C. McCarthy, Steve Diamond, Howard Kurtz and Sean Hannity the story is coming out.

The American people are noticing and reacting accordingly.

Amazing Ayers Audio & Barack Obama

Why Won’t Obama Talk About Columbia?
The years he won’t discuss may explain the Ayers tie he keeps lying about.

By Andrew C. McCarthy

“BarackObama does not want to talk about Columbia. Not even to his good friends at the New York Times, who’ve so reliably helped him bleach away his past — a past neck-deep in the hard Left radicalism he has gussied up but never abandoned.

Why? I suspect it is because Columbia would shred his thin post-partisan camouflage.

You might think the Times would be more curious. After all, the Democrats’ presidential nominee has already lied to the Gray Lady about the origins of his relationship with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. Back in May, in a cheery profile of Obama’s early Chicago days, the Times claimed (emphasis is mine): 

Mr. Obama also fit in at Hyde Park’s fringes, among university faculty members like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, unrepentant members of the radical Weather Underground that bombed the United States Capitol and the Pentagon to protest the Vietnam War. Mr. Obama was introduced to the couple in 1995 at a meet-and-greet they held for him at their home, aides said.

Now look, anyone who gave five seconds of thought to that passage smelled a rat. Ayers and Dohrn are passionate radical activists who lived as fugitives for a decade. There’s no way they held a political coming-out party for someone who was unknown to them. Obviously, they already knew him well enough by then to feel very comfortable. They might have been sympathetic to a relative stranger, but sponsoring such a gathering in one’s living room is a strong endorsement. ..”

“…In short, Bill Ayers and Barack Obama moved in the same circles, were driven by the same cause, and admired the same radicals all the way from Morningside Heights to Hyde Park. They ended up publicly admiring each other, promoting each other’s work, sitting on the same boards, and funding the same Leftist agitators.

You could conclude, as I do, that it all goes back to a formative time in his life that Obama refuses to discuss. Or you could buy the fairy tale that Bill Ayers first encountered an unknown, inexperienced, third-year associate from a small Chicago law-firm over coffee in 1995 and suddenly decided Barack Obama was the perfect fit to oversee the $150 million pot of gold Ayers hoped would underwrite his revolution.”

 

“…Obama and Ayers shared all kinds of views. That is why they worked so well together at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), funding the likes of Mike Klonsky, a fellow SDS and Maoist associate of Ayers who, as Steve Diamond relates, used to host a “social justice” blog on Obama’s campaign website. With Obama heading the board of directors that approved expenditures and Ayers, the mastermind running its operational arm, hundreds of thousands of CAC dollars poured into the “Small Schools Workshop” — a project begun by Ayers and run by Klonsky to spur the revolution from the ground up.
Precisely because they shared the same views, Obama and Ayers also worked comfortably together on the board of the Woods Fund. There, they doled out thousands of dollars to Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity Church to promote its Marxist “black liberation theology.” Moreover, they underwrote the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) founded by Rashid Khalidi, a top apologist for Yasser Arafat. As National Review’s David Pryce-Jones notes, Khalidi once directed WAFA, the terrorist PLO’s news agency. Then, like Ayers, he repackaged himself as an academic who rails at American policy. The AAAN, which supports driver’s licenses and public welfare benefits for illegal aliens, holds that the establishment of Israel was an illegitimate “catastrophe.” http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NjY4YzdhMDBkZGQ3ZmU2MTUzYjdkMzc5ZjUzYmViZWM=   

 

 

Who “sent” Obama? 

Special Global Labor Repost. Originally Posted April 22, 2008. Updated October 13, 2008 with additional information on Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Steve Diamond

“… Thus, we have one possible answer to the question: Who “sent” Obama? It was the Ayers family, including Tom, John, Bill and Bernardine Dohrn. 

It is highly unlikely that a 30-something second year lawyer would have been plucked from relative obscurity out of a left wing law firm to head up something as visible and important in Chicago as the Annenberg Challenge by Bill Ayers if Ayers had not already known Obama very well. One possibility is that Obama proved himself to the Ayers’s in the battle for local school control when he was at the DCP in the 80s. 

One guess as to why Obama does not play up his educational experience more thoroughly now – it certainly could be of use to him one would think in beefing up his “I have the experience to be President” argument – is that it would lead to a renewed discussion of the Ayers connection, which is clearly toxic for Obama. …”

Barack Obama’s Lost Years
The senator’s tenure as a state legislator reveals him to be an old-fashioned, big government, race-conscious liberal.
by Stanley Kurtz

“…Obama moved to Chicago in order to place himself in what he understood to be the de facto “capital” of black America. For well over 100 years, the Chicago Defender has been the voice of that capital, and therefore a paper of national significance for African Americans. Early on in his political career, Obama complained of being slighted by major media, like the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times. Yet extensive and continuous coverage in both the Chicago Defender and the Hyde Park Herald presents a remarkable resource for understanding who Obama is. Reportage in these two papers is particularly significant because Obama’s early political career-the time between his first campaign for the Illinois State Senate in 1995 and his race for U.S. Senate in 2004-can fairly be called the “lost years,” the period Obama seems least eager to talk about, in contrast to his formative years in Hawaii, California, and New York or his days as a community organizer, both of which are recounted in his memoir, Dreams from My Father. The pages of the Hyde Park Herald and the Chicago Defender thus offer entrée into Obama’s heretofore hidden world.

What they portray is a Barack Obama sharply at variance with the image of the post-racial, post-ideological, bipartisan, culture-war-shunning politician familiar from current media coverage and purveyed by the Obama campaign. As details of Obama’s early political career emerge into the light, his associations with such radical figures as Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Reverend James Meeks, Bill Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn look less like peculiar instances of personal misjudgment and more like intentional political partnerships. At his core, in other words, the politician chronicled here is profoundly race-conscious, exceedingly liberal, free-spending even in the face of looming state budget deficits, and partisan. Elected president, this man would presumably shift the country sharply to the left on all the key issues of the day-culture-war issues included. It’s no wonder Obama has passed over his Springfield years in relative silence. …”

“…Important though it is to Obama, the crime issue runs a distant second to his deepest passion: social welfare legislation. “Big government liberal,” “redistributionist”-call him what you like, Obama’s fondest hope is to lead America into another war on poverty. Everything in his state-legislative career points in this direction, and Obama calls for a renewal of expensive national anti-poverty programs in his book The Audacity of Hope. True, Obama’s promotion of government partnerships with private-sector housing contractors (like Antoin “Tony” Rezko) was supposed to open up novel, post-Great Society solutions to the problem of poverty. Yet, as a devastating Boston Globe report on Obama’s Illinois housing policy recently showed, the results of Obama’s new war on poverty are just as counterproductive as those of the old war on poverty. Neighborhoods supposedly renovated now lie deserted by the private developers who took Obama’s government handouts and ran-quickly building or renovating housing units, but failing to maintain them. …”

Ayers’ Weathermen planned “re-education”, genocide

 

 

Next, the Obama thugs came for Stanley Kurtz

By Michelle Malkin 

“…First, they came for TV stations daring to air an independent ad about Barack Obama and unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

Next, they came for GOP donors.

Now, they are shamelessly attacking National Review investigative journalist Stanley Kurtz — one of conservatism’s most thoughtful and penetrating writers on academic and educational affairs. Kurtz has been at the forefront probing Obama’s relationships with left-wing ideologues. It was his public information request and public call for help that led to the University of Illinois – Chicago finally releasing tons of files that shed light on the Obama/Ayers working relationship. The Obama camp is condemning Kurtz in harsher terms than it ever condemned the terrorist Ayers. Kurtz has been attacked now as a “right-wing hatchet man” and “slimy character assassin.”

Here are the Kurtz-smearing talking points the Obama campaign sent to its worshipers.

It was “non-stop.” And: “Surreal, amusing, and chilling.”

As I reported yesterday, Kurtz spent two hours on legendary radio talk show host Milt Rosenberg’s Chicago program on WGN last night detailing his initial findings. The Obama campaign went ballistic — and in typical Chicago mafia-style, smeared Kurtz and tried to shut down the show.

Milt Rosenberg’s producer, Zack Christenson, wrote early this morning: …”

Spread the wealth, swallow the crap sandwiches

By Michelle Malkin  

 

“… I know you all are dying to weigh in.

Plumber to Obama: “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?”

Obama: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Crap Sandwiches: It’s what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. …”

Obama’s Boys of Summer

A Who’s Who of 1968 radicals supports the candidate.

“…Obama has already taken political hits for his connection to Weathermen Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. In the sixties, Ayers advocated that young people kill their parents, and Dohrn praised the Charles Manson murders. Alongside their Weather Underground cohorts, the pair declared war on the United States and participated in a bombing campaign that hit the Capitol, the Pentagon, and numerous law enforcement agencies. The couple eventually reinvented themselves—first as academics, then as players in Chicago-area Democratic politics. Obama praised Ayers’s book in the Chicago Tribune, sat with him on a foundation’s board, and benefited from a fundraiser held at the couple’s home. Ayers spoke at events organized by Michelle Obama; Barack Obama spoke at events organized by Ayers.

With the public revelation of this unseemly relationship—between unrepentant terrorists and the man who now seeks to oversee America’s war on terror—and the impact it’s already had on voter attitudes, one would think that other sixties extremists might be more reserved in proclaiming their support for Obama, knowing the damage such associations can do to his candidacy. As for Obama, he’ll need to do some distancing of his own. He protested that he was only eight when Ayers, Dohrn, Rudd, and company embarked on their bombing campaign, and that’s reasonable enough. But he’ll need to go further.

Fortunately for him, the Left has a long history of cold-shouldering predecessors to perpetuate its ideology, cleanse it from past failures, and make it appear fresh. The New Left dissociated itself from the Old Left’s Russophilic dogmatism through the Port Huron Statement and other declarations of independence. Even the phrase “New Left” was adopted to divorce the Left from its history.

SDS’s history offers a template for eliminating the embarrassing past. Jack London, Upton Sinclair, and others founded the Intercollegiate Socialist Society (ISS) during the Progressive era, but by World War I the word “socialist” had fallen from favor. So, with the Left seeing labor unions as the agent of societal change, the ISS became the League for Industrial Democracy (LID). Then, by the end of the 1950s, theorists Herbert Marcuse, C. Wright Mills, and Norman O. Brown scoffed at the idea of blue-collar workers—often violently hostile to the Left’s aims—as transformative agents, and the LID’s student arm, the Student League for Industrial Democracy (SLID), rechristened itself Students for a Democratic Society. Just as SDS killed SLID as the fifties became the sixties, Weatherman killed SDS as the sixties became the seventies: SDS’s spirit of “participatory democracy” could not peacefully coexist with the vanguardism of Weatherman. And now, completing the circle, the SDS alumni of “progressives” for Obama resurrect a term that would have been more familiar to their distant forebears in the Intercollegiate Socialist Society. On the Left, everything old is eventually new again.

In 1968, the Left served as unwitting allies of Republicans, costing the Democrats the White House by rioting at their convention and withholding votes from Hubert Humphrey. In 2008, it is their vocal support that may cost Barack Obama the presidency. Obama can take a page from the early days of the New Left, which—initially, at least—refused to allow discredited radicals to discredit it. Either Obama publicly divorces himself from radical supporters whose association does more for them than it does for him, or he faces the prospect of Bill Ayers as his Willie Horton. …”

Obama & DNC Admit All Allegations of Federal Court Lawsuit – Obama’s “Not” Qualified to be President

Obama Should Immediately Withdraw his Candidacy for President

For Immediate Release: – 10/21/08 – Complete contact details and pdfs of this press release and motions filed by plaintiff Berg today are at the end of this article

(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/21/08) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

Berg stated that he filed Requests for Admissions on September 15, 2008 with a response by way of answer or objection had to be served within thirty [30] days. No response to the Requests for Admissions was served by way of response or objection. Thus, all of the Admissions directed to Obama and the DNC are deemed “ADMITTED.” Therefore, Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President.

OBAMA – Admitted: 

1. I was born in Kenya. 

2. I am a Kenya “natural born” citizen.

Shame, Cubed
Three separate reasons to be appalled, each more disgusting than the last.By Bill Whittle“The Drudge Report this morning led off with a link to audio of Barack Obama on WBEZ, A Chicago Public Radio station. And this time, candidate Obama was not eight years old when the bomb went off.

Speaking at a call-in radio show in 2001, you can hear Senator Obama say things that should profoundly shock any American – or at least those who have not taken the time to dig deeply enough into this man’s beliefs and affiliations.

Abandon all Hope, Ye Who Enter Here:

 

Barack Obama, in 2001:

“You know, if you look at the victories and failures of the Civil Rights movement, and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it, I’d be okay, but the Supreme Court never entered into the issues of re-distribution of wealth, and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

“And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution – at least as it’s been interpreted, and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [it] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

“And that hasn’t shifted, and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.”

A caller then helpfully asks:

“The gentleman made the point that the Warren Court wasn’t terribly radical. My question is (with economic changes)… my question is, is it too late for that kind of reparative work, economically, and is that the appropriate place for reparative economic work to change place?”

Obama replies:

“You know, I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. The institution just isn’t structured that way. [snip] You start getting into all sorts of separation of powers issues, you know, in terms of the court monitoring or engaging in a process that essentially is administrative and takes a lot of time. You know, the court is just not very good at it, and politically, it’s just very hard to legitimize opinions from the court in that regard.

So I think that, although you can craft theoretical justifications for it, legally, you know, I think any three of us sitting here could come up with a rationale for bringing about economic change through the courts.”

…”

Schutzstaffel

“The Schutzstaffel   (German for “Protective Squadron”), abbreviated SS– or Runic "SS" (Runic)- was a major Nazi organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. The SS grew from a small paramilitary unit to an elite force that served as the Führer’s “Praetorian Guard,” the Nazi Party’s “Shield Squadron” and a force with as much political influence as the regular German armed forces. Built upon the Nazi racial ideology, the SS, under Heinrich Himmler’s command, was primarily responsible for the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Nazis during the Second World War.

Initially smaller than the Ernst Röhm’s Sturmabteilung (Storm Battalion abbreviated SA), the SS grew in size and power due to its exclusive loyalty to Hitler, as opposed to the SA, which was seen as semi-independent and a threat to Hitler’s hegemony over the party. Under Himmler, the SS selected members according to the “Aryan” ideology. Developing elite police and military units such as the Waffen SS, Himmler used the SS to develop an order of men claimed to be superior in racial purity and abilities than other Germans and national groups, the model for the Nazi vision of a master race. During the World War, SS units operated alongside the Army and in the final stages of the war, exercised dominance over the Army to eliminate perceived threats to Hitler’s power while implementing his strategies despite the increasingly failing war effort. …”

Stasi

“The Ministerium für Staatssicherheit (Ministry for State Security), commonly known as the Stasi [ˈʃtazi] (abbreviation German: Staatssicherheit, literally State Security), was the official secret police of East Germany. The MfS was headquartered in East Berlin, with an extensive complex in Berlin-Lichtenberg and several smaller facilities throughout the city. It was widely regarded as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies in the world. The MfS motto was “Schild und Schwert der Partei” (Shield and Sword of the Party), showing its connections to the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED), the equivalent to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Another term used in earlier years to refer to the MfS was Staatssicherheitsdienst (State Security Service or SSD). …”

Khalidi, who regards Israel as a “racist” “apartheid” state, supports Palestinian terror strikes against Israeli military targets. It’s little surprise that he should be such a favorite of Ayers, the terrorist for whom “racism” and “apartheid” trip off the tongue as easily as “pass the salt.”
And it’s no surprise that the like-minded Obama would be a fan. Khalidi, after all, has mastered the Arafat art of posing as a moderate before credulous Westerners while (as Martin Kramer documents) scalding America’s “Zionist lobby” when addressing Arabic audiences. The Obama who decries “bitter” Americans “cling[ing] to guns or religion” when he’s in San Francisco but morphs into a God-fearing Second Amendment enthusiast when he’s in Pennsylvania — like the Obama who pummels NAFTA before labor union supporters but has advisers quietly assure the Canadians not to worry about such campaign cant — surely appreciates the craft. …”

Phoney Political Polls–Just Flip It Off–McCain 55% vs. Obama 40%

 The Art Of Polling; Should We Trust Polls?; Race For The White House

 

Insane Presidential Poll Numbers For Obama and McCain – October

 

Opinion Polls: Getting the results you want

 

Arianna Huffington – The Problem with Polling

 

Yes Prime Minister Clip – Who Reads the Papers

 

Congratulations President McCain!

The pump and dump drive-by mainstream media who are in the tank for Obama have been very busy polling.

If you believe their polls, Obama is winning the popular vote by 10% to 15% and will be the next President.

There are many, many ways to cheat and get the result you want: 

  1. the sample size of the poll.
  2. who is polled–adults, registered voters, or likely voters.
  3. when the poll is taken–overnight, during the week, or on the weekend.
  4. the weighting of responders–Democrats, Republicans and independents.
  5. the wording of the question.
  6. the order of the questions.
  7. the response rate.

The only poll that counts is the actual election.

Unfortunatley, even here Obama and his allies in ACORN, its affiliates, and clones are also trying to steal the election with voter registration fraud and voter fraud.

The deep secret about big media, people and politicians is that they are all ignorant about the issues and policies.

Big media is polling ignorant people about issues and policies that both are deeply ignorant of for politicians that are ignorant of the American people’s concerns.

The blind leading the blind.

The American people are deeply concerned about illegal immigration and want it stopped and the illegal aliens sent home.

The pump and dump drive-by mainstream media, along with the Presidential candidates of both parties totally ignore the issue.

No questions about this issue has been asked during the Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates.

Polls: Obama or McCain Is Winning

By Steven M. Warshawsky

“…Before concluding, let’s look at a typical poll of the races in two important “battleground” states.  This poll was done by CNN/Time on October 7 (also taken from RCP).  According to this poll, Obama is leading McCain in Ohio, 50% to 47%, and in Wisconsin, 51% to 46%.  The headline for the poll:  “New Obama gains in battleground states.”  Yet the margin of error for the poll was +/- 3.5 points.  This means that, based on the results of the CNN/Time poll itself, McCain could be leading in Ohio by a margin of 50.5% to 46.5% and in Wisconsin by a margin of 49.5% to 47.5%.

Of course, in the past several weeks there have been polls showing McCain leading the race nationally and in the battleground states.  Are the results of such polls simply to be disregarded?  On what grounds?  Why should the polls that show Obama in the lead be given more weight than the polls that show McCain in the lead?  Such reporting reflects the bias of the mainstream media, not the “truth” about how the American people are going to vote this November.  Moreover, the idea – implicit in the daily fluctuations of the polls – that large numbers of American voters are regularly switching back and forth between McCain and Obama makes no sense.  Who knows any real people who are going through such mental and political gymnastics?

In short, the polls do not show that Obama is “winning” the race, anymore than they show that McCain is “winning” the race.  What they show is that the contest is very close, and will not be decided until election day — when the American people actually go to the polls and cast their votes. 

 

For the reasons I’ve stated before, I predict that more votes will be cast for McCain than for Obama.

Book Review: “Mobocracy”, by Matthew Robinson

“…All of this would be meaningless if it were not for the fact that the media and even the public puts much stock in polls. The media uses it to make elections into horse-races and to support its positions on social issues. Because of this, polling can have the tendency to change the color, tone, length and intensity of a debate. Polls create an environment during elections that cause candidates to drop out of races even before they can educate the public on their views. This is because a candidate who does not poll well in the early running will be ignored by the media and will find donations shrink and finally disappear. A kind of “Catch-22” for an unknown player. He cannot get his message out without money, and he cannot get money unless he can get his message out.

Mark Twain has often been quoted, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.” After reading Mr. Robinson’s book you will come to realize that polling often falls into one of these three categories. Yet, he does make clear that polling is a tool, even a weapon, and like tools and weapons it can be used or it can be abused.

Polling can be used by industry to help shape products. It can be used by sociologists and scientists to advance medicine and psychology. It can be used for entertainment and trivia. It can also be used in politics to help gauge the effectiveness of public campaigns.

Ultimately, an educated public is the best way to fix the problems with polling. Not only will it make our understanding of polling data and its significance more profound, but perhaps the data itself will be made more accurate.

Matthew Robinson’s book clearly explains the complexity of polling and its effects on politics. His analysis succinctly illustrates that polling is not so much a democratizing influence as it is a disturbing one. “Mobocracy” provides a great opportunity to learn about the art, science and necromancy of polling.”
