DNC "Is Journalm Dead? " By The Mental Pugilist

"Are you ready to rumble" The DNC should get Michael Buffer to kick of their convention with his trademark call. I am sitting here flipping between Fox, CNN , and MSNBC's coverage and would like to offer my observations. Is Journalism dead? I can not remember ,a time in my life, when watching the news you had to be so cognoscente of what media outlet is telling the story in order to decide the slant of the news. The fact is so magnetised watching the DNC coverage that its a sad joke! Its is really funny to watch.

I have been watching the DNC coverage. Here is an experiment, Watch CNN for twenty minutes and then watch Fox for twenty minutes. Look for what guests they have on. Look for what type of followup questions each anchor asks. Below is what I found.
CNN: (1) All Anchors never challenge pro-Obama guests but tend to agree. (2) There guest tend to be pro-Obama, and the guests who are anti-Obama are challenged by anchors at every turn. (3) You will never see Jerome Corsi on CNN!

FOX: (1) Their anchors look like fish out of water. They might give equal airtime to guests , but every time a pro-Obama guest praises him , they interject McCain back into the conversation and praise him or let people on set praise him. (2) More airtime to guests who are Anti-Obama! Prime example, "Bill Eyebrow surgery Hemmer" interviews the author of "the case against Barack Obama" He lets him go on and on about his research and only asks one follow question to challenge him. Do you think this author will be showing up on CNN anytime soon? NOT!

What they both should do is just stick to reporting the convention and the back stories going on in Denver. Lord knows there are tones of these juicy angles when the Clintons are involved!! Another thing I noticed is that when any male Clinton supporter or delegate are interviewed, they are all characteristically Afeminine!! Why? Another great exercise you should do is in about a week, go to the store and by a fox and CNN sticker. Once the DNC starts, put the Fox sticker over the CNN label on TV when watching CNN and when watching Fox, put the CNN sticker on the Fox label on TV. There coverage will be exact opposite of this in a week!! Makes me laugh!!

"Short List" Just not mine!! By The Mental Pugilist!

This weekend, Barack Obama took another step toward becoming the next President of the United States, He did not choose Scary Hillary Clinton to be his Vice President! I am tickled pink at the aspect of watching a Democratic National Covention with a women scorned and all her followers trying to wreck havoic on the convention. Not to mention her husband, in recent weeks who could not bring himself, on national television, to say he believed Obama was ready to be president, is going to be a key note speaker.
There is even more juicy news that Hillary Clinton didn't even get a veeting! How funny!! My sources tell me that from day one , Michelle Obama , nixed the idea of Hillary or Bill ever being on the ticket.
For all the pundets out there that have been saying that Hillary would be a great choice, let me explain something. You really need to read some polling data. Hillary negatives, (Negatives= out of the people polled, they would not vote for this person under any cirumstances) where above fifty percent!! That means , if you choose her, you would already eliminate half of America from voting for you. Why would you do this to satisfy 10 percent of the blue hairs in the Democratic party? I would worry more about independence and Republicans who might vote for you instead of the Blue hairs living in Florida.
Joe Biden is a perfect pic for Obama. Senator Biden can thank Russia for his VP Pic! Joe Biden is an independent thinker and will bolster Obama's foreign policy and experience chops.
Grab you popcorn and get ready for the sparks to fly in Denver!! I can't wait to see Bill's bonny fingure or the hords of old women and effeminate males trying to out yell Obama Supporters and demanding That Hillary have a vote on the floor. Whats the over and under on what day will Bill Clinton have a blow up with the media? I say day 1!!

"I looked into his eyes and saw a stone cold killer" :By The Mental Pugilist!

By now, everyone in America has herd that Georgia has been invaded! No I don't mean Georgia the land of confederate flags and Copenhagen. I am talking about The Republic of Georgia, which is a strategic Baltic country located on the border of Russia. First things first, how did this whole mess start? It is been widely reported that Georgia went in to South Ossetia and started the war. While this fact is true, one that seems not to get much play in the media is that for weeks before the incursion, Georgia proper was being shelled constantly by Russians in South Ossetia.
Now let me ask you, Imagine you lived in Texas. For weeks on end, a group of Mexicans in Dallas have been planting bombs in buildings in Austin. Finally, The Texas Department of Public Safety and The Texas Rangers moved into Dallas and stopped the Mexican nationals. Would you be ok with the Mexican army arriving in Dallas claiming to be protecting its citizens. This is what is occurring in Georgia in a nutshell.
Russia's rise back to a supper power can be directly linked to its abundance of oil and natural gas. Europe relies on a Russian natural gas pipeline to supply the whole of Europe. They are notorious for using their energy monopoly to influence Europe and other Baltic states. America is a close ally of Georgia. They have helped them build a strategic natural gas and oil pipeline that would deny Russia's monopoly. You always hear that various wars are about oil, this one definitely is!
This is what shocks me. American defense officials had said that they where surprised by the swiftness of Russia's offensive. What? This doesn't make sense. For the past several years we have had military advisers and contract workers inside Georgia training their army. Also, for those of you who are unaware, The CIA has a large station inside The Republic of Georgia! Therefore , it is unfathomable to believe we where unaware of Russia massing troops on the border or that Georgia was going to go into South Ossetia. it appears this is a complicated game of chess between Russia and America where one of the rooks in this game might be Iran.

Operation Brimstone was just completed about a week ago. This was a joint exercise between America , France , and Germany. The exercise was a practice run at a naval blockade. Can you say Iran? Last week, The U.S. sent another two battle groups toward the Persian Gulf. They should have be arriving as we speak. This makes five strike groups, the largest naval armada since WWII! Do you think the breakout of hostilities in Georgia is just a coincidence?

I wonder if President Bush would like to take back his statements made about looking into Putin's eyes? Lets call a spade a spade. Putin is or was the head of the KGB. That alone makes him a stone cold killer. This is what makes me nervous. America is sending military troops into Georgia for "humanitarian purposes". This means two nuclear super powers will be swapping spit in a pond called The Black Sea! This should make everybody nervous! Remember , in the game of chess, you are willing to sacrifice some pawns in order to checkmate the Queen! I wonder who is the better chess player Bush or Putin?

Hillary, why are you so bitter? : By The Mental Pugilist

With the DNC just three weeks away, Bill and Hillary Clinton are at it again! Her defeat in the Democratic primary seems to be a pill she is still having a hard time swallowing. Bill was recently interviewed on a trip in Africa. He was asked if he thought Obama was ready to be president? His response was Luke warm to say the least. He said "no one is really prepared to become president". He added he was not a racist! Thanks for telling us that.
Hillary Clinton can not help but show her true colors. She had a recent rally with her supporters that has made it to you tube. When she was asked about having a vote for her at the convention, she remarked " I think it makes us stronger if all our voices are herd". What a crock! Don't believe all the unity talk that Bill an Hillary are saying. If Hillary wanted to unite behind Obama wouldn't she answer " no no, that is not necessary. We all need to go to the convention and back Obama".
Its interesting to note the timing of their comments. One of the agreements worked out at the end of the primary was Obama would help Hillary pay off her debt. So far she is still waiting for the majority of the money from Barrack. She decides to speak up only after it is clear that there is no chance of her as the Vice President. Make no mistake, she could care less about party unity. She is in it for herself. Hillary is salivating at the chance to sink the U.S.S. Obama. Her gaze is firmly fixed on 2012. If Obama losses, she would love to say "see I told you he couldn't win". Isn't the world suppose to end in 2012? I guess it would if Hillary Clinton is elected president!

Orwellian Olympics! : By The Mental Pugilist

With the Olympics just two days away, I find myself thinking about the people of China and how it will effect them. As I sit in Dallas freely typing on my computer with my sharpi dog "rehab" sound asleep under my desk, I wonder how free will the media by to express themselves at the Olympics. As I sit hear enjoying the 100 degree summer of Texas in relevant peace, I wonder how many people have been rounded up in Beijing and sent out of the city. People ranging from activist, cripples to street beggars. All in the name of cleaning up the streets. Reading all the news reports I can't help but imagine what an Orwellian Olympics we are going to witness.
George Bush did his best in Thailand to speak out against human rights violations and freedoms that the communist party deny to the Chinese people. It is a sad sad world when America is left limp wristed when it comes to influencing China and its human rights policy. America and its multi milion dollar sponsors have giving tacit approval to China's coming out party! George Bush plans to attend the Olympic ceremonies. What message is that sending.
You might wonder why we can do very little to effect Chinese policy. The true reason is because, on paper China owns use, literally! The paper I speak of are Federal Reserve notes! China is the single country that owns the most amounts of our Treasury notes. In other words the are financing our debt and sustaining America's cult of consumerism. We rely on China to finance one third of are debt. Many suggest the reason we do not take a harder line is that they could turn in all there reserve notes and wreck our economy. That's bull. China needs our country because we are their largest consumer of their cheap lead filled products that keep their economy growing by leaps and bounds.
China knows that they have us by the shorts and could care less about what we think of Tibet and other issues. It always amazes me how the Bush administration's cornerstone policy is the spreading of democracy and freedom. Yet we are hunky dory with allies like Egypt , Saudi Arabia, and any of the Emirates who are ruled by monarchies or dictators. They are not exactly democratic! When you watch Michael Phelps win is eight gold medals in a grand new swimming arena, You should wonder how many poor families were left homeless in order to construct it!

Iraq! GIVE ME OIL NOW! :By The Mental Pugilist

With the Presidential election looming just three months away, the nightly news coverage has been dominated by the various issues that America faces and the candidates stances on them. Energy is a huge problem that every American feels with four dollar a gallon gasoline. The economy and the U.S. dollar are second to none in importance to what we must overcome. One issue that effects all of the above topics that most politicians do not talk about is how much money we have spent in Iraq and how it contributes to the gutting of the U.S. dollar.

Let me tell you a little secret, You might think that all the wallstreet bailouts, government programs, or stimulus packages contribute the most to our national debt and the erosion of the dollar but you would be wrong! politicians can talk all day long about taxing oil companies on windfall profits or giving out more stimulus checks as a remedy to our economy. Do not listen, this all B.S. The single biggest drain on our economy is not the home mortgage mess either! The biggest drain is how much we have been spending for a war in Iraq! Ask your friends this questions and I bet no one would say the war.
We have been in Iraq for nearly fives years. The tax payers are spending 12.3 billion dollars a month to help the Iraq's construct and rebuild their country. One could argue the necessity of the invasion and spending for the future security of America. But, one can not argue with the newly released U.S. government Audit of Iraq's revenue!

Currently Iraq is racking in more oil revenue than you can shake a stick at! They are estimated to have an 80 billion dollar surplus! Whats that? We are footing the bill while they are swimming in a surplus of money. Whats that? We are reconstituting their economy for free while we at home pay $4 per gallon gasoline. Whats that? Inflation is on the rise in my country because we are growing our national debt while Iraq has been swimming in petro dollars! Is there something wrong here?
After reading the audit report , I think it is time to introduce a real energy plan. Candidates, feel free to use my plan. This plan would help solve many problems on many fronts and this plan does not involve inflating tires or drilling of the coast of California. America should demand that Iraq repay roughly one third of our monthly expenditures with barrels of oil. This would alleviate high energy prices that are killing the middle class. Dumping these barrels of oil into the U.S. market would dramatically reduce the price of gas in the short term. Why has no Presidential candidate talked about the reason we are paying another country to rebuild when they have government surpluses? It is Insane!

This is a great idea that we should implement for our cost of being in Iraq for five years! Besides wasn't it Ryan Crocker who said "Iraq's oil revenue will pay for rebuilding"!

Obama, Why hasn't he hit a walk off homer yet? : By The Mental Pugilist

Well, the whirlwind world tour has finally come to an end. The oversees trip saw Barrack Obama in the middle east as well as stops in Germany and France. All leave the talking heads to dissect what he did and did not do right. One thing that stuck out to me was while I watched him on stage and meeting with different leaders, he really looked very presidential! Every time he speaks he reminds me of old footage of John F Kennedy. That said, why has he not translated his stardom to a double digit lead against the old war horse? With the Republican name in the toilet, he should be crossing home plate after hitting a grand slam homer to win it in the ninth!

Recent Gallop and Wall street journal polls only have him with a five or six point lead. So what is the reason for this? John McCain hasn't exactly ran a brilliant campaign. I think there are many factors to consider. First of all, one of the worst things a presidential candidate can talk about during an economic down turn is raising taxes. No matter what your strip is politically, no one likes to here talk about raising taxes across the board. Obama has stated the need to raise taxes which many think will stifle growth. His friends in congress are not giving him any help. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have continually blocked a vote in the senate on off shore drilling. The problem with this is most Americans favor drilling and some kind of plan for relieving high gas prices. Only the leaders of the Democratic party could manage to blow such a sure win in the White House. Did you notice how crappy Nancy Pelosi's new book is doing on Amazon? I think one book ahead of hers is "why Samone Spawn"! That should give you a clue.

If I where Barrack Obama, I would distance myself from the leaders of the Democratic party. I would make and effort to sharpen the substance of my views on relevant issues. Every American loves the idea of a candidate of change but, the message of change can only carry you so long. Especially a campaign that is almost two years long.
This Sunday I herd Lindsey Graham on the Fox news Sunday show. He was going on and on about how Barrack Obama is using the race card from the bottom of the deck. He talked about the comment Obama made about how the Republicans would tell you that his name was funny in order to scare you. Mr. Graham commented that no of these things where happening. I wonder if Lindsey has been living on earth for the last few months. Every right wing radio show I listen to from Laura Ingram, Glenn Beck on down the line have called the candidate Barrack Hussein Obama at every turn. It is funny to listen to these guys because you can hear it in their voices, the frustration setting in that they are not going to be able to stop Obama and that their candidate sucks. With so much going on in the world, it amazes me that every one of them, every day, talk of the same subject, Barrack Obama!! It gets old! I am a big fan of the above mentioned hosts but it, is getting really repetitive and stupid.
I voted for Barrack Obama in my states primary. I love his message of hope and like the Idea of new blood in the White House. I just wish he wasn't so liberal! One prediction that you can take to the bank and cash it in for Euros is that Obama will win in a landslide. Like Ben Stein said " many white voters will end up voting for Obama because of liberal white guilt. Guilt for the sins of our fathers". I wish the Republicans had a better alternative but Their candidate John SYDNEY McCain has been in congress for 100 years and has done nothing. He is part of the reason where are in a mess today.

Terrorist threat? Fact or Fiction? By The Mental Pugilist

For the past several months, the media has been speculating about an attack on Iran and its nuclear installations. In these conversations they have also mentioned the various surrogate terrorist organizations that they sponsor throughout the middle east. I recently read the book "Atomic Iran" by Jerome Corsi. It is a great book if you are interested in the history of Iran and its relationship to the U.S. All of this got me to thinking how big of a threat are terrorist to strike the United States.

I took a practical approach to the problem by looking at the rhetoric coming out of our government and compared it to the actions taken to see if they matched the threat. What I found was disturbing! All will use a scenario to demonstrate what I mean. Lets say I own a donut shop in south Dallas. In the last year my shop has been burglarized several times and my clerks have been robbed at gunpoint. One was even murdered on a night shift while closing up shop. Dallas police have beefed up patrols and I have installed security cameras and an alarm. Every night when I leave work I wave to the patrolman who drives by. I close the front doors and lock them up. Then I turn on the cameras and set the alarm. When I walk out the back door I leave it open until I return the next day!

Does this make sense? This is what we are doing right know with our borders. Something does not ad up! Why on god's green earth would you develop homeland security, wiretaps, and renditions all in the name of terrorism and not secure the border? It makes no sense. If I were a Terrorist and wanted to get a cell into the U.S. , wouldn't the easiest way to accomplish this would be to cross our southern border. This is what thousands of illegals do every year. So what really is going on.

I remember right after 9/11 , they announced Bin Laden as the chief suspect. I remember thinking I had never herd of this guy until know. Recently, I looked uped Osama Bin Laden on the FBI's most wanted list. Under the description of what he was wanted for, there is no mention of 911!!! Then, this last week I read about Seymour Hersh and how he reported that Cheney and Bush had a brainstorming meeting about what to do about Iran. One of the suggestions was to dress up navy seals in an Iranian fast boats and attack American war ships in the straits of Hormuz! Why hasn't the main stream media reported this? Mr. Hersh is not a wack job. He is a highly respected semi famous journalist.

I voted for President Bush twice but this all feels like a manipulation to me. Do you every feel as an American citizen, there is another agenda the congress and the President are following? They seem to do or not do things because they are servants to someone or something else and not the American People! It makes me question 9/11 and the whole terror threat. Then I ask myself, what motivation would people in government have to perform false flag operations that killed 3,000 Americans. The only conclusion i come up with is The Rise OF The Fourth Reich!

Something to research! Did yo know that World Trade Center 7 housed The Security and Exchange Commission. It admitted that on 9/11 more than seven thousand prosecution files where lost. It is rumored that Prescott Bush's 1942 prosecution transcript for his connection with the Nazi's was lost!!!!!!
