Når man læser dansk og europæisk presse får man et indtryk af et elektorat forurenet af svært bevæbnede bibelsvingende konservative og et politisk system bestukket af amoralske hedgefonde og olieselskaber (et morads hvor Israel lobbyen snor sig). Det kommer sig af at den europæiske og danske presse spejler sig i sine venstredrejede ligesindede medier på den anden side af atlanten og referer således partsindlæg som analyser. Så lad os få en anden kritik af amerikansk magtmisbrug.
Et af de mest populære medier er Washington Post
Let’s take, for instance, the billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer has made much of his fortune by using his government connections to secure support for uneconomic “green” energy projects that have profited him, to the detriment of consumers and taxpayers. See, for example, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. As is explained here, Tom Steyer is a bitter opponent of the Keystone Pipeline. His financial interests, in “green” energy and perhaps also in pre-pipeline oil sources like BP, stand to benefit if Keystone is killed.
Haven’t heard much about Tom Steyer, you say? Maybe that’s because he isn’t heavily involved in politics. Heh–just kidding. Steyer, as you probably know, is one of the biggest donors to the Democratic Party and its candidates. This year, he has pledged to contribute $100 million to the campaigns of Democratic candidates, as long as they toe the line on environmental issues–which includes, presumably, taxpayer support for “green” energy and opposition to Keystone.
So the Post could have written a very different story about the Keystone Pipeline. The Post could have written that opposition to the pipeline is being funded in large part by a billionaire who has a personal financial interest in the pipeline not being built. And that’s not all! The billionaire is a political crony who has used his connections in Washington to get rich and to fleece consumers and taxpayers. Now, with Keystone, he is doing it again! How is that for a story that would “stir and inflame public debate in this election year”?
I Californien arresteres eller fængsles demokratiske politikere på månedlig basis, som man kan læse på Breitbart
The latest arrest came Wednesday, as Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco was arrested on federal corruption charges. The federal government charged Lee with conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms.
In January, Sen. Rod Wright of Inglewood was convicted of perjury and voter fraud for lying about his legal residence in Los Angeles County. The GOP tried to expel him from the Senate, but the Democrats would not consider the matter.
In February, Sen. Ron Calderon was indicted on federal corruption charges; he had accepted roughly $100,000 for himself and family members as a trade for supporting laws to expand Hollywood tax credits as well as looking out for a hospital that wanted a provision of the workers’ compensation law protected.
On Wednesday, President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (pictured), who leads the Democrats in California’s Senate, held a news conference. He urged Lee to resign or face suspension. He bluntly said, “He cannot come back.” Steinberg added:
I know what people are thinking. This is the third incident the Senate has had to deal with. We are going to do everything in our power to uphold the integrity of the Senate and do the people’s business and still have a great and productive year.
Yee’s hypocrisy was staggering; before his indictment he was well known for his efforts to promote government transparency and public records and introduced several bills in 2013 that limited gun possession.
Og med det forhold til ret og rimeligt er det ikke overraskende at demokrater står i kø for at fejre den tunesiske islamist Rached Ghannouchi, leder af det tunesiske parti Nahdha. Frontpage Magazine mindes grunden til at Ghannouchi førhen ikke var ønsket på amerikansk jord
During the Gulf War, he did the usual “Death to America” thing expected of all moderates.
According to Ghannouchi, the Muslims now faced “Crusader America,” the “enemy of Islam,” and Saddam had taken a necessary step toward unity, “joining together two Arab states out of twenty-two, praise be to Allah.”
Ghannouchi also threatened the United States. Speaking in Khartoum during the crisis, he said, ” We must wage unceasing war against the Americans until they leave the land of Islam, or we will burn and destroy all their interests across the entire Islamic world.
After the war, Ghannouchi requested a U.S. visa. His request was denied.
Sheik Ghanushi, began by blessing the mothers of the suicide bombers: “I would like to send my blessings to the mothers of those youth, those men who succeeded in creating a new balance of power… I bless the mothers who planted in the blessed land of Palestine the amazing seeds of these youths, who taught the international system and the Israeli arrogance, supported by the US, an important lesson. The Palestinian woman, mother of the Shahids [martyrs], is a martyr herself, and she has created a new model of woman…”
The Arab Spring “will achieve positive results on the path to the Palestinian cause and threaten the extinction of Israel,” Ghannouchi said. “I give you the good news that the Arab region will get rid of the bacillus of Israel. Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the leader of Hamas, said that Israel will disappear by the year 2027. I say that this date may be too far away, and Israel may disappear before this.”
And his rise in Tunisia during the Arab Spring was nothing short of disastrous.
In the video, which was first broadcast last April and re-broadcast October 9th, Ghannouchi said, “The secularists are still controlling the media, economy and administration. Therefore, controlling them would require more time.” He added that “the police and army’s support for Islamists is not guaranteed, and controlling them would also require more time.”
The Ennahda leader said, “We’ve met with Hizb ut-Tahrir, and the salafists, including Sheikh Abou Iyadh and Sheikh al-Idrissi.”
Abou Iyadh, also known as Seif Allah Ben Hassine, is currently wanted by Tunisian police in connection with the September 14th attack on the US embassy.
tjah, jeg mente blot at man manglede en vinkel i medierne af demokrater som kriminelle, korrupte landsforræddere.
