Fox News Goes Breitbart With Edited Video!

Fox (alleged) News should receive a review from the FCC. The network consistently broadcast edited video to deliver false and misleading messages to its viewers.   

Fox News Deceitfully Edits Video To Falsely Place Al Sharpton At Scene Of An Anti-Cop Protest

The hosts of Fox & Friends went out of their way Sunday to malign civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton. In multiple segments throughout their morning broadcast they aired videos of Sharpton at a rally in Washington, D.C. to protest the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island,…

"Where Have We Gone Wrong" Stan Brock Remote Area Medical (RAM)

Perspectives on Healthcare, the lack there of, and far Right resistance to help for those with pain and suffering!

Dr. Joseph Smiddy

CBS 60 Minutes July 2008.

The Remote Area Medical (RAM) volunteer corps (clinics) and its pilot' founder and principle driver, came into the light. Prior to the 60 Minutes broadcast my knowledge of the RAM was at the level of NIL. Of course, it should go without saying, but I will make the point the 2008 was well within my regular viewing of 60 Minutes. After the hire of David Rhodes, from Fox News, in 2011, 60 Minutes has become an entertainment relic of its past investigative greatness.  We will leave the hire of Rhodes for another screed.

60 Minutes July 2008
The 60 Minutes segment was an eye opener. A bit of irony for me; the RAM founder, Stan Brock, worked as an assistant to Marlin Perkins on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Brock's RAM originally provided medical services across the globe in remote areas across the globe. Brock and his volunteers now focus their relief work in remote and under-privileged (via lack of medial services) in the United States.

RAM services have expanded beyond remote areas to areas with high concentration of the uninsured and chronic poor (e.g., Los Angeles Neighborhoods, Las Vegas and East St. Louis, Illinois). RAM in the media: Linked.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — They came for new teeth mostly, but also for blood pressure checks, mammograms, immunizations and acupuncture for pain. Neighboring South Los Angeles is a place where health care is scarce, and so when it was offered nearby, word got around.
When Remote Area Medical, the Tennessee-based organization running the event, decided to try its hand at large urban medical services, its principals thought Los Angeles would be a good place to start. But they were far from prepared for the outpouring of need. Set up for eight days of care, the group was already overwhelmed on the first day after allowing 1,500 people through the door, nearly 500 of whom had still not been served by day’s end and had to return in the wee hours Wednesday morning.

The enormous response to the free care was a stark corollary to the hundreds of Americans who have filled town-hall-style meetings throughout the country, angrily expressing their fear of the Obama administration’s proposed changes to the nation’s health care system.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Hannity, Fox News, Bundy As Pioneer For Land-Grabbing Oligarhcs

Racism has become so mainstream it has (again) ensnared the political propaganda anti-Obama machine called Fox News.

While the issues surrounding Cliven Bundy's grazing tax evasion spans 20 years, it has apparently become a battleground objective for far-right libertarian oligarchs. Over the course of the past month, Fox News has rivaled CNN's  uninterrupted coverage of MH-370 via its coverage of BLM's efforts to assist in forcing Cliven Bundy to pay a million dollars in fines and back taxes. The rounding-up and corralling of Bundy cattle became a literal Cause Celebre for Fox News and certain GOP officials and one "wanna be president" opportunist (eg., Rand Paul).   

Media Matters developed the following graphic to illustrate the scope of Fox News coverage before his racist remarks. Notice the Hannity indicator to the far right of the graphic. 

Media Matters
Watch the last three minutes of a Fox News segment (a full 12:40 minutes) in which Fox News producers, writers and Hannity avoided deep discussion of Bundy's tax evasion.  Fox segment development appeared to use the first ten miutes of the segment as a lead into Hannity's closing remarks that embody the essence of Fox News Obama Derangement. Hannity via a camera shot developed for full impact of typical Hannity "I am DA Man" non-verbals spews, a list of Fox News issues with the Obama Administration; not one of the issues has proven to exist with any level of veracity. Yet, Hannity fed sycophants viewers who stay-up late to watch his brand of propaganda. 

The 10 minute setup is classic propaganda and craftily done, I will add.

As the week moved into Bundy's Saturday afternoon "press conference", the political landscape changed. Bundy's via discussion of his 'tax evasions' and status as a legitimate "taker", crossed the line into discussion of Latinos and African-American poor. People who live their lives with a mindset of 'privilege' over others cannot disguise their inner paradigms once the mouth opens. Bundy was no exception. Actually, Bundy appeared to have backing well beyond a simple phone call to militia for support in his tax evasion. The anti-US government (despite his frequent brandishing a US Flag) is a flaming racist who spoke about how black people may not have learned to pick cotton, thus their descendants don't know anything.

When a reporter gives and idiot a microphone idiocy cannot help but ensue. Idiocy when coupled with racism will surely lead to comments such as those from Bundy.  

Since Hannity served as "point position" in leading the Fox News Bundy campaign, the seditious talking-head host couldn't help, but state his position on Bundy's comments. He spoke of his contempt regarding Bundy's racist remarks, while continuing to exhort seditious sentiments for his audience. A more telling reality is the almost nil level of Fox News coverage of Bundy's avowed racism and associated remarks. 

A funny thing happened this past Sunday, on the way to a new week of Fox News anti-Administration broadcasts.  Someone in Fox News management must have decided to address the network's lack of coverage regarding Bundy's racist comments as it gave to Bundy as a Koch brothers functionary.  Howard (Mr. Credible... facetiously) Kurtz offered Fox News viewers criticism of his employer and their choice to shave Bundy coverage after his racially charged diarrhea.

We offer a Buzz Feed analysis of the extent to which Fox News completely avoided "reporting" on Bundy journey into his inner (racist) core.

As mentioned above, the Bundy matter has far deeper roots and fissures than a tax evading racist standing on camera with a dead calf. There are far greater issues beyond Bundy's indictment of MLK and Rosa Parks. In effort to deflect from his racist rants, the cattleman, actually suggested MLK 'is not doing his job" if "THOSE PEOPLE" cannot stand to be referred to as a "Negro."  

After a few days of Bundy as social engineer, we can rest assured the nation's top libertarian oligarchs would love to have him leave the purview of live cameras and probably would like to have the rancher simply shut-up and go away. Multiple media are reporting, Bundy may exist as the visible pimple of a Koch abscess percolating with a core nucleus of land-grabbing the US West.

Before turning the piece to American Against the Tea Party and Media Matters, I ask a question. When will the US populace grow weary of the Koch brothers and their obvious attempts to establish a US oligarchy in which they will sit as kings?

Corker And The GOP Screw Tennessee!

Last week I published a piece about the continuing manifestation of GOP malfeasance when applied to the common people. Senator Corker (R) Tennessee clearly showed how misrepresentation and lies benefit those who seek personal power and are willing to spend lavishly to secure their will. It is clear the peopel of Tenessee took a back seat to GOP power-brokers with Corker as the conduit.

While the GOP maintains anti-collective bargaining bedrock position as solidly as its positions on the ACA and civil rights (human rights), voters should recognize the deleterious affect of the aggregate "body of policy" from the party.

Scott Walker: An Exhibition In Republicanism!

“This is an old news story,” he told the Post. “Many of the ones that have been highlighted of late have actually been in the [Milwaukee] Journal-Sentinel and other places several years ago.” Scott Walker (R), Governor Wisconsin.
AP Photo / Jacquelyn Martin

Scott Walker has been the center of negative news since he won his gubernatorial seat in 2010 (inaugurated in January 2011. Almost immediately after this inauguration, Walker embarked on a strategy to reduce the number and influence of public service workers (Democratic voting collective bargaining ) via major statewide cutbacks.

Within the month (February 2011) Scott was phone punked by a radio personality pretending to be David Koch (American uber wealthy libertarian - tea party money-backer - plutocrat).

MSNBC, Ed Schultz, The Ed Show....

The perfect example of how politicians cuddling-up to and massage the egos of their money backers. I doubt there is a better historic example of politician-power money broker "phone carnal groveling." Walker is the perfect functionary and political tool.

And, his name is bring tossed around as the GOP presidential candidate in 2016! 

As Walker worked to win the Wisconsin gubernatorial seat in 2010, he left this trail of felony acts from his Milwaukee  County Executive Office.

  • Wisconsin appointee Kevin Kavanaugh (R) was arrested for embezzling $42,000 from a veterans benefit organization called Operation Freedom. Kavanaugh had been appointed to run the organization by Republican Scott Walker (R) who was Milwaukee County Executive at the time. Four others were arrested and sentenced as well.
  1. Tim Russell, appointed by Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker (R) as Deputy Chief of Staff and Housing Director pled guilty during Operation Freedom to diverting more than $21,000 to his personal bank account.[203]
  2. Kelly Rindfleisch, appointed by Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker (R) pled guilty to felony Misconduct in Public Office and was sentenced to six months in jail after admitting to campaigning for Republicans while working in Walker's Milwaukee County office.[203]
  3. Darlene Wink appointed by Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker (R) as Coordinator of Constituent Services, pled guilty to fundraising for Walker’s gubernatorial campaign while working in a County building.[204]

Walker may not have been culpable in moving money around, but it is really hard to fathom total innocence regarding campaign work while serving in county government. Walker validated he will play the game during his extended schmoozing and cowering to the fake punk caller.

It seems Walker cannot escape a trail of ooze comparable to that of a nocturnal snail and the critters slimy silver trial.  

2010 staff convictions passed into neatly wrapped prison terms. Walker barely escaped a state recall vote, and successfully won re-election. His anti-union campaign continued  through the 2012 campaign. Let's face it, one has to make the Koch brothers happy.

A Sunday Morning With Palin ...For Fox News Viewers

Sarah Palin speaks to Fox News
Psycho babble alert!

We knew when Fox News crawled back to Sarah Palin with a contract, our world (via newscasts) would again return to period expositions of psycho-babble.  It is not our intent to be mean-spirited, but the Palin book release and political season opportunity to contribute to the money Palin household is nothing shy of a horrific thought. Fox News is an entertainment outlet, but when Palin is booked on a show, the segments seam to explode across social media like an exploding nebula.

If you want to see how millions spend time soaking-up psycho-babble, we offer the perfect exposition (nebula explosion). Chris Wallace broadcast a segment in which he asked Palin three separate "turn-her-on and let-her-babble" questions. The topics were, Christmas, the ACA and filibuster reform (from the Left). We are offering (via Americans Against The Tea Party) an answer to one question: filibuster reform. How can any network allow such babble to cross their airways?

Americans Against The Tea Party  

If you followed the Americans Against The Tea Party link above you saw a second example of insane Right-wing psycho-babble. If you did not follow the AATP link, you should play the following segment from CSPAN. Notice the patient of the man picture on the screen and also notice the haste of the moderator in ending the segment.

The Raw Story also published the Filibuster segment of the Palin interview.

If you watched the full segment, you may have noticed how Chris Wallace ended with Palin. He gave a hearty laugh. If you think about the laugh, it is as telling as hearing a "laugh-track" on SNL. Did Wallace consider the Palin babble comical?  If so, what was comical about the babble?  Or, was it Palin crass manner of ending the psycho-babble: "it stinks?" In either case, is it possible Wallace ends most of his interviews in the same manner?

Fox News and Obama Middle East Trip

The Pardu ....We all know that Fox News feeds the brains ans psyches of hordes who simply hate President Obama.  They hate such that they will go completely orgasmic with the most simple and lie infested reporting Fox News throws at them. I correct myself for referring to Fox News as "reporting". The network is clearly one of pure right-wing propaganda.   The extent of Fox News propaganda can be no more evident than the just completed Obama trip to the Middle East. 
Ken F.
The Faux News thing was interesting, but the part that struck me was when he was cheered by Israeli students about his talks with Palestinian students. It reminds me of the Sting song "Russians." At that time everything Russian was considered evil but I was haunted by the refrain of the song that ended "... the Russians love their children too." 

In spite of all of the geopolitical differences in the world the welfare of the worlds children should be the primary concern.

Samuel Warde: Steve Katz Caught Doing What?

Cross posted from Liberals Unite Dot Com. Maybe one day people will grow to understand the true nature of politicians.  When that happens, I will wager the persnickety Right will be revealed as a complete fraud.

Republican Assemblyman Steve Katz Charged With Possession (VIDEO)


Steve Katz, a New York State assemblyman from the Hudson Valley who voted against the legalization of medical marijuana last year was charged with marijuana possession after he was stopped for speeding, the authorities said on Friday. Assemblyman Katz was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation that is punishable by a fine of up to $100.

“He was alone and cooperative,” said the police, who ticketed him for a small baggie and going 80 in a 65 mph zone.

Below is the official press release issued by the New York State Police.
