Nothing in this political enviroment gets me more upset than the hypocrisy and lies in liberal news media. They will, EVERY time, say that the jobs report is better than expected in some detail even though the jobs reports are always horrible and are often adjusted to that effect after the fact. They will say that Republicans are the reason bills aren't getting through the Senate (the so-called Jobs bill, most recently -really it's a tax bill), when the Senate has a Democrat majority and could pass bills without any Republicans voting at all. They will likewise paint any failures of the Super-commitee in Congress as the fault of the Republicans when the liberals on the committe have rejected proposal after proposal brought forward by the GOP and have set absolutely no proposals forward of their own. This feels like deja-vu - oh, wait; it is! This is precisely what happened leading up to the very bill giving us the Super-committee, when the threat of 'default' was upon us this summer and the Democrats refused to but a budget bill on the table but attacked every single GOP plan, most notably the Ryan plan. You'll see a repeat, just wait and see.
The media is completely hypocritical when it comes to liberals versus conservatives: they stir up cries of sexual harassment against Cain with NO details, yet ignored multiple leads and of instances involving Clinton, Weiner, Edwards, Ted Kennedy, etc. as long as they possibly could, and made excuses for them when they couldn't ignore it any longer. The media and the liberal politicians are so entirely tied together that the liberals have been entirely in control of the national news conversation for decades, until the recent bloom of more conservative, non-traditional media like the internet.
Here they are, the newsmedia and liberals in Congress, lately calling on conservative Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from judging the Obamacare trial because of his wife's work in the past? After years of proving himself more than able to separate his work from hers?
Contrast that with liberal Supreme Court judge Elena Kagan, who immediately before her Supreme Court appointment worked for President Obama as solicitor general, responsible for legally defending the positions of the administration. She cheered at the passage of Obamacare. If you haven't heard about the hypocrisy involved here, it's because you are a victim of the liberal news media. To quote an article from CNSnews, "According to 28 USC 455, a Supreme Court justice must recuse from “any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” The law also says a justice must recuse anytime he has “expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy” while he “served in governmental employment.”"
Sometimes I just can't take it anymore! That's why I write these posts. I get it out of my system and hope that my words will educate at least one other person, and then I go back to being a nice conservative Mormon mom, hoping for the possibility of raising my children under a United States government that listens to the voice of the people and works for them instead of against them. That will only happen when the majority of the American people recognize the mess we're currently in and that we're headed to worse. In short, when people understand that the media lies.
