Video: Elite Media Mentions Corrupt Vote Bribing for ObamaCare

Posted by iusbvision on February 18, 2010

Morning Joe, the liberal Republican on MSNBC:

CBS actually goes after the Democrats too, so you KNOW its bad:

Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com comments and tells you what details CBS conveniently leaves out:

When CBS Evening News reports on Democratic corruption, we know that the story has gotten legs. Katie Couric and Wyatt Andrews throw in an obligatory “Republicans did it too” moment, but other than about fifteen seconds, the CBS pair keeps the heat on Democrats.

What Andrews misses in his tu quoque is that it was a Republican Congress that admonished Tom DeLay for attempting to trade favors for votes.  The GOP may have porked up Congress for a decade and undermined their credibility by doing so, but at least they had some limits and a sense of shame strong enough to publicly rebuke their own leadership for arguably corrupt practices.  Couric points out the difference without making it explicit; while Republicans admonished their own leader for these kinds of shenanigans, Democrats don’t feel a need to put on even a pretense of shame.

Of course if Republicans had done enything this brazen, it would be on the elite media constantly.

CNN Analyst Advocates Obama Go “Chigaco-Style Al Capone Gangsta” on Political Opponents.

Posted by iusbvision on February 18, 2010

UPDATE – Huffington Post advocates “Breaking Kneecaps” against Republicans – LINK.

Yet another of countless examples of the hate on the progressive left.

Roland S. Martin, CNN Political Analyst:

Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.

Could someone explain to me how that is not a call for the President to abuse his power and the resources of the government for political gain. Imagine if a prominent Republican had said this. The Huffington Post would be screaming that it was a death threat against the president.

Virginia Tech considers illegally cutting funding to campus newspaper

Posted by iusbvision on February 18, 2010

According to established federal case-law it is illegal for a public university to attempt to censor the content of student speech, this includes using budget cuts as a weapon.  But this doesn’t stop all too many college administrators who think that the Constitution doesn’t apply to them….. that is…. till they face a lawsuit.

Roanoke Times:

The Collegiate Times will pursue legal action if Virginia Tech’s Commission on Student Affairs goes forward with plans to cut university funding to the newspaper and related student media products, according to a letter released today by the newspaper.
 
The CT is the student-led campus newspaper for Virginia Tech, but is owned and operated by Educational Media Company at Virginia Tech Inc., an independent entity.
 
The commission notified the newspaper Monday that it had been deemed in violation of the university’s “principles of community” for allowing anonymous online comments to be posted to the paper’s Web site.
 
In a letter dated Feb. 8, officials laid out a plan to cut university funding to the paper, the yearbook and other publications owned by EMCVT and ban student organizations from using university funds to buy advertising in the CT, a move that could shut down the paper.
 
Officials have asked the newspaper to disallow anonymous comments on stories at its Web site, saying that staff, students and some faculty had objected to comments they characterized as racist or otherwise offensive.
 
The paper has so far declined to change its comment policy or ban anonymous comments from the site, pointing out in a response letter to Tech officials that most newspapers across the country allow anonymous comments on their Web sites.
 
The move is “completely unconstitutional, as well as breach of contract,” CT General Manager Kelly Wolff said Thursday.

For some reason college professors and administrators can’t seem to understand what most high school graduates do; that the First Amendment was designed to protect potentially offensive speech. As far as racist speech, everyone knows that anything that the far left doesn’t like or can’t refute becomes labeled as “racist” automatically. The law is the law. It is illegal to discriminate on speech on the basis of content at a university. The First Amendment prohibits it. Universities lose court battles and/or on the losing end of a settlement at an alarming rate when illegally subverting free speech.

When VT realized that the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education had gotten involved and they were about to face legal action that they had no chance of winning, VT finally did the right thing and decided that following the supreme law of the land was a good idea.

College administrators are often paid six figure salaries to exercise good judgment, so why is it that cases like this are epidemic. They cannot claim ignorance because almost every campus has a law library and First Amendment scholars.

Ballooning Largest-ever federal payroll to hit 2.15 million

Posted by iusbvision on February 18, 2010

While the president and Nancy Pelosi lecture us on how government needs to be more fiscally responsible and pay as they go so there is no more deficit (their words not mine) the federal civilian payroll has exploded, including the hiring of thousands of new IRS agents.

Washington Times:

The era of big government has returned with a vengeance, in the form of the largest federal work force in modern history.

The Obama administration says the government will grow to 2.15 million employees this year, topping 2 million for the first time since President Clinton declared that “the era of big government is over” and joined forces with a Republican-led Congress in the 1990s to pare back the federal work force.

Most of the increases are on the civilian side, which will grow by 153,000 workers, to 1.43 million people, in fiscal 2010.

The expansion could provide more ammunition to those arguing that the government is trying to do too much under President Obama.

**Mr. Obama says the civilian work force will drop by 80,000 next year, mostly because of a reduction in U.S. census workers added in 2010 but then dropped in 2011 after the national population count is finished.
