Shocker: The Media is Bias

Breitbart is giving $100,000 to anyone who can provide him with the full JournoList.

Apparently, liberal journalists have been using the JournoList site to share ideas on how to sway public opinion to the left. The conspiracy was discovered when someone leak David Weigel's private emails.

Earlier this month NewsBusters reported that according to USA Today's former editor Kenneth Paulson, media bias is a myth. Paulson said:

"Despite the perception of news media bias, the truth is that most traditional news organizations — primarily newspapers, their Web sites and local TV and radio — adhere to in-house ethics codes and keep politicians at arm’s length."

Of course, pool parties don't count. What happens on the Slip'n Slide, stays on the Slip'n Slide. But, emails are fair game.

Double-jointed Obama to Kick His Own Ass

He warned us. He gave BP 48 hours or else. And after 2 months of millions of gallons of oil spilling into the ocean, it’s official: Obama will have to kick his own ass.

When he gave the original warning, he took a lot of flack. “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college, uh, seminar,” said Obama, a former university professor. “We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers so that I know whose ass to kick.” This sent the media into a tizzy, setting off a race-baiting war of words.

For over 2 years now, we’ve all been wondering what it would take to get all sides of the media riled up over something he’s said. When he said, “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” the media didn’t bat an eye. When he mentioned his desire to “spread the wealth around,” most of the media looked the other way. And recently he said, “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” Still the media remained silent.

But, when he said the word “ass,” all hell broke loose.

Once again those on the left side of the isle fought to racially charge the American public. After years of being accused of not being black enough, they suggested that he’s now too black. And, worse, it has been suggested that he’s an “angry” black man. And, according to CNN’s John Blake, “Many white Americans don't like angry black men.”

Luckily, the media’s attempt to instigate Rodney King-like riots has failed. And, we should put all that behind us now, because for the first time, Obama will step up to the plate and take his licks.

It’s obvious why he came to the conclusion that the backside needing punishment was his own. Oil rigs are to be inspected every month, but the BP rig only had 6 inspections in 2008. Records show a total of 16 missed inspections. The last “inspector” sent wasn’t an inspector, but an inspector who had just started training. And, his ignorance of the Jones Act has delayed the cleanup process.

Perhaps the greatest offense pointing to Obama’s guilt is his insistence on wasting his time passing anti-American legislation. He’s been so focused on government regulations against the individual’s freedom that it’s left little time for regulations that might truly matter. He’s stayed fixated on infringing upon the rights of the little guy, while ignoring regulations put in place to prevent a giant environmental disaster.

He was focused on health care coverage, and making sure that all Americans were forced to have it whether they wanted it or not. He didn’t realize then that if the ocean water is replaced with oil, it could lead to the destruction of the human race as we know it, rendering health care passé.

He was busy using his time and effort, and all our environmental resources, on his cap and trade plan. He didn’t have time to worry about an environmental issue that could actually happen. He was occupied with perpetuating the mass hysteria that air is going to cause the Earth to overheat and kill us all. Now, not only will every glacier melt and submerge all 7 continents, but we’ll be covered with oil as well.

Still, many say this punishment is perhaps too extreme. He could have simply cancelled one of his family vacations back to his homelands, Kenya and Indonesia. He could have just apologized to the American people for all his months of government waste, fraud, spending, and negligence. Or, he could have suggested his own impeachment for crimes against the Constitution. But, as a man of integrity, he knew that all those options were too easy.

Truman proved it with Hiroshima; Reagan proved it with Qaddafi; and now, Obama will prove with his own rear-end that there is no more severe a punishment than a presidential ass whooping.

Still, many of those on the right will hate everything Obama does no matter what it is. They argue that his self-inflicted punishment is for egocentric reasons. They contend he is trying to re-invent himself with the realization that people are turned off by narcissism, but respect humility; that he hopes he can use his butt in a punt to score a political field goal.

They claim that he knew he didn’t need to meet with BP CEO Tony Hayward because he had already figured out who needed a foot to the derriere. But, he agreed to talks with the CEO as a PR stunt that would hopefully take the attention off his tush.

“I’m not sure he is well-suited for the kind of contortionism necessary to self-inflict this kind of punishment to my satisfaction,” said one voter. Others wonder why he doesn’t ask for a volunteer to give him a kick in the pants. After all, Karl Rove and Dick Cheney have wanted to kick his ass for a long time.

The President’s supporters say performing the act himself shows that he’s a man of his word. One pollster said that Americans can only take 937 broken promises and campaign lies before public opinion starts to shift. This statement would represent lie 938, if he does not do the butt kicking himself.

At one time, the United States was the greatest nation on Earth. We saw the tides turning when we saw our President bow in submission to Saudi Arabia’s leader. Still, no one ever would have thought that our country would go so low as to have the Leader of the so-called “Free World” attaching to his back a self-created “kick me” sign.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has yet to announce when the ceremonial ass kicking will take place. Tea Party leaders have said that once the date is announced they will begin erecting mega-screens across the country for the ultimate movie viewing experience.

Congressional Democrats have asked that Congress observe a 45 second moment of silence in reverence to our fallen leader. And, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already warned Republicans that any laughter will result in “Joe Wilson consequences.”

(Disclaimer: This story is an entirely fictitious parody. To the author’s knowledge, Obama is not double-jointed. Obama has not announced any plans of self-harm as punishment for his role and response to the BP oil spill. For now, Obama is still meeting with BP and “experts,” and his warning to kick the gluteus maximus of those responsible remains an empty threat.)

New RNC Ad

Nice to see that Obama has been having such a great time throughout the oil spill disaster:

Of course, this has infuriated the DNC. It's only okay to trash a Republican President in a time of crisis.

Dolphins might be my favorite animal. I can't watch this video without getting emotional:
Saving Dolphins From Gulf Oil Slick

And, my bad camera work hanging out with dolphins:
58 days into the oil spill disaster, and here's where we stand:

--There are not 42,000 gallons of oil spilling into the ocean daily as the government estimated. It's closer to 2.5 million/day.

--The moratorium on drilling is more expensive than the spill, costing oil rig operators an estimated $16.5 million/day.( This reduction in commerce is not going to help with our trillions of dollars of debt.)

--Since we can't drill, we have to import more foreign oil, most of which is from countries that propagate terrorism. So, our national debt goes up, we give more money to the people who want to kill us, and we prolong our efforts in Afghanistan, perpetuating the War of Terror, er, I mean, the 'Overseas Contingency Operation.' (This means it costs more money, and more importantly, more lives.)

--Instead of focusing on plugging the hole, our President is focused on using this crisis to pass his agenda. His energy plan will not do anything except make you poorer. It simply means that every time you turn on the lights or cook a meal, the government gets more of your money. This is particularly harmful to companies that create jobs. And, it's more likely to stall developments in energy technology because taxes do not breed innovation, freedom does.

Obama's Oval Office speech confirmed the suspicions that Obama does not care about the environment. He cares about pushing his agenda to get more of your money so you hand over to him more power and control. If he cared about the environment he'd focus on PLUGGING THE HOLE, not on cap and trade.

After the speech last night, Obama's approval rating is 42% according to Rasmussen. That 42% must have been watching The Real Housewives of NYC.

Or Else?

I keep reading that Obama has given BP 48 hours to do more about the oil spill. 48 hours, or what? Parenting 101: You can't have an ultimatum without an or else "X."

You have 48 hours or...
-- we will fine you?
--we will take over your company and rename it Obama Oil?
--we will cap it ourselves? (Then just do it.)
--Obama will finally have a photo-op with BP's CEO?
--Obama really will suck it up in a straw?
--Obama will announce "whose ass" he is going "to kick?"

Oil rigs are supposed to be inspected monthly, but BP's rig has only been inspected 6 times since 2008. And, for the last inspection, the government sent an inspector-in-training.

Obama gives BP ultimatum: 48 hours or else — then heads to youth soccer game

Taxes are Voluntary

Senator Harry Reid believes that taxes are "voluntary." It's totally your freedom to choose to pay your taxes, or choose to go to jail. Maybe part of the problem with our government is that they consider that "freedom."

You Can't Have Friends Who Don't Agree With You

Rush Limbaugh married his fourth wife a couple days ago, and Elton John played at his wedding. I didn't really find it odd that perhaps the most talented radio talk show host in the world would have one of the most talented musical artists perform at his wedding.

Apparently Joy Behar thinks that if you don't believe in every single thing that someone else believes, you can't appreciate that other person's talents. Worse, she likens it to the KKK and South African apartheid. I guess her only friends are also closed-minded, complaining, judgemental, nasally, whining liberalomaniacs.

Who would have thought that Whoopi would ever be the voice of reason? It's like we've entered a parallel universe.

Arizona Boycotts

A week or so ago, Obama said of the Arizona boycotts, "I don't endorse boycotts or not endorse boycotts."

Clearly this man needs to take a remedial class on our Constitution.

Stated clearly in the Commerce Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3), the federal government is granted the power "to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes". So, not only should he and Congress "not endorse boycotts," but they should actually prohibit them. Instead of enforcing this clause for its intended purpose, he uses it to infringe on our liberties with powers undesignated to him, like the health care takeover.

The federal government should promote legal immigration and combat illegal immigration. The Constitution's Preamble states, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." We cannot "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity" if we do not protect and preserve the integrity of our borders.
