Obama Stumbles on Falklands, the Press Mocks . . . Bush

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012 - by Sonny Palermo

Drudge has a headline today that reads “Obama Makes Falklands Gaffe.” Here is the leader and subheading that greet you when you open the link to The U.K’s Telegraph (bold emphasis mine):

Barack Obama makes Falklands gaffe by calling Malvinas the Maldives

Barack Obama made an uncharacteristic error, more akin to those of his predecessor George W Bush, by referring to the Falkland Islands as the Maldives.

Even the British press is in the tank for this guy!

For fun, peruse the comments section to see how THE PEOPLE feel about Obama as opposed to the fawning press. Seems Barrack is even less popular in England than he is with the majority of citizens in the US. Most comments attack the writer for his misuse of “uncharacteristic” while reminding him about Obama-isms such as fifty-seven states, corpsemen, intercontinental railroad, speaking ‘Austrian’ etc.

Biden vs. Obama (sans teleprompter) in Jeopardy – who do you think would win?

(More interesting – would either finish with plus money?)

CBS’ Take on the Secret Service’s War on (having to pay) Women

Monday, April 16th, 2012 - by Sonny Palermo

Having just employed their favored excuse *“Bush Did It!” for the GSA’s “Snafu in Sin City” the media had to choose another diversion for the “Secret Service Stiffs Seductress” sex scandal in Brazil. As usual, they could not stray far from their usual motif.

Here is the most telling sentence in CBS’s on-line coverage of the Obama Administration’s Embarrassment of the Week:

“when [Dick Cheney's daughter] Mary Cheney was under protection, she wanted her agents to take her friends to restaurants. Well, they’re not taxi drivers. They are law enforcement officers, they refused, as they should have, but because of that she got her detail leader removed.”

Of course! It was Cheney, in the billiard room, with the candlestick!

How typical of the major networks – they simply cannot bring themselves to cover an Obama controversy without somehow attempting to deflect it onto the Bush administration. Pit-i-ful.

With the rate and tonnage of scandals coming out of this administration – Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Lightsquared, Obamacare, GSA, etc., etc., etc., Darrell Issa’s office is going to soon merit hazard pay.

More Media Sleight-of-Hand in Third Grade Sex Scandal?

Saturday, March 24th, 2012 - by Sonny Palermo

Light on facts (not to mention ethics) the liberal portion of the main stream media (the other 99%’ers) continue to play judge, jury and executioner in the Trayvon Martin shooting.  Are they going out of their way to portray the triggerman as white, concealing his Latino heritage to inflame racial bias?  Would the agenda-driven media stoop to such sordid levels?

Of course they would.

The most glaring example is the infamous MSNBC edit, wherein they cropped a photo of a black man holding a rifle at an anti-Obama protest and used it in a “conservatives are racists” segment (is there any other kind of segment on MSNBC?)

And this week we have a report by a CBS affiliate involving a teacher in Tallulah, LA, who was fired for not preventing under-the-desk oral sex between two third grade students (no, not a typo; yes, third grade.)

As you can see from the link above or the photo below, the coverage included a photo of a student; a white student.

Only problem is, at least one source says the students were black.

A not-so-subliminal message?  Purposely deceptive?

Maybe with two choices, white or black, they just took a 50-50 shot.  Except for this – according to AfricanAmerican.org the school has a black population of 85.3%.

The media intentionally instigating race wars?

Third graders having sex?

Yet another Kardashian television series about to debut on E! ?

I’m not sure about this whole Rapture thing, but I hope it’s not true.  Otherwise, we can’t possibly have too much time left . . .

(Side note – Oddly, I agree with Geraldo Rivera, the hoodie is responsible for what happened to Trayvon Martin.  I also believe the Snuggie kidnapped the Lindbergh baby.)
