Brilliant Black American Explains ‘Why I’m Conservative’

Posted by iusbvision on August 8, 2008

(Hat Tip Hotair.com)

This next video is one of the most brilliant refutations of every left wing talking point that I have ever scene.

“Living in the past, instead of learning from it, isn’t progressive and keeping people angry about the past doesn’t make for a better future.”

“If this really is a war for oil, than why don’t you get out of the way and let us drill for our own oil. If it’s really about war for oil than no one has more blood on his hands than you.”

Pay special attention to what he has to say about taxes, the minimum wage and charity.

More Brown-Shirt Censorship Tactics from the Far Left

Group Plans Campaign Against G.O.P. Donors

By MICHAEL LUO
Published: August 7, 2008

Nearly 10,000 of the biggest donors to Republican candidates and causes across the country will probably receive a foreboding “warning” letter in the mail next week.

The letter is an opening shot across the bow from an unusual new outside political group on the left that is poised to engage in hardball tactics to prevent similar groups on the right from getting off the ground this fall.

Led by Tom Matzzie, a liberal political operative who has been involved with some prominent left-wing efforts in recent years, the newly formed nonprofit group, Accountable America, is planning to confront donors to conservative groups, hoping to create a chilling effect that will dry up contributions.

“We want to stop the Swift Boating before it gets off the ground,” said Mr. Matzzie, who described his effort as “going for the jugular.”

The warning letter is intended as a first step, alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives.

Kids learn this type of behavior in college. Kids do not leave high school with a lust to censor, intimidate, and engage in Stalinist or ‘brown-shirt’ tactics such as this when they leave high school. Such behavior is commonplace on campus as we have catalogued on this blog in detail.

Senator Joe Lieberman On Obama and Iraq

Posted by iusbvision on August 8, 2008

Senator Lieberman was the Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee in 2000. He opposed quitting on Iraq and was driven out of the party for it. Now Lieberman, an independent, speaks out on the issues.

Media Bias You Can Believe In II

Posted by iusbvision on August 8, 2008

AP, NBC, ABC, MSNBC ‘forgot’ to mention that Jailed Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is a Democrat in its reporting. Kilpatrick is vice-president of the National Conference of Democratic Mayors and is a representative to the Democratic National Committee. After evidence of repeated abuses of power, obstruction of the courts, violation of court orders, sex scandals, perjury, and even assaulting the deputy’s who served papers on him, not only is the press not mentioning his party affiliation, of course there are few calls by partisan democrat groups for Kilpatrick to step down.

When Republican Larry Craig had legal trouble partisan’s on both sides asked him to step down, in spite of the fact that when the evidence was closely examined it appears that Craig was innocent of any wrong doing. Of course, the media went nuts with excessive coverage of the story and made sure that his party affiliation was prominent in that coverage.

The AP featured Crag’s party affiliation regularly:

Craig, a Republican who has represented Idaho in Congress for 27 years, announced Saturday that he intends to resign from the Senate on Sept. 30. But since then, he’s hired a prominent lawyer to investigate the possibility of reversing his plea, his spokesman said.

Contrast this as well with the coverage of recently indicted Senator Ted Stevens. Examine the AP article here http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080729/ap_on_go_co/stevens_indictment. Stevens party affiliation is mentioned in the headline and appears ELEVEN TIMES in the body of article.

For more, including transcripts of the television news coverage that lacks the party affiliation, please visit Newsbusters here  – http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-baker/2008/08/07/kilpatrick-leads-democratic-group-yet-all-cbs-fnc-refuse-id-him-d

It is not just the AP who is doing this in print news. Here are two more news stories where Kilpatrick’s party affiliation is conveniently left out.
