How much longer can the mass media keep covering for the multiple failures and felonies of the GOP?

The list of political, economic, moral and social failures of GOP governing is long and so obvious I have no desire to re-write them all here. Trust me, it is near endless.

Felonies, indictments, economic stagnation, corruption, investigations, court battles, social strife, religious extremism encouraged and gone wild, fact and science denial.....an Emperor-clown at the head of the GOP Presidential Candidate Clown Train pulling along boxcars full of insanity.

The examples of actual, topical, real-time failures of the GOP and their corrupt, money grubbing politicians are legion. No need to even look at the recent history of GOP failures for even more pertinent examples, that is even a longer list.

So I repeat as much as repetition is necessary: How much longer can the mass media ignore the economic and social failures of the GOP and all their corrupt marching men and all their crazy pastors and the crazy NRA? The GOP even has one token and willing women who is being heavily funded by another token male GOP "candidate" religious zealot wannabe - just to use as an attack dog against Clinton? I am not making that up! How much more obvious can you get?

Even as the Governors of those very same failed and failing States seek to impose the same failures on all of America, I ask again: how much longer can such massive and obvious fakery - i.e. this current Planned Parenthood propaganda smear - be permitted to substitute fully for actual facts and truth and evidence?

Is propaganda now on par with reality?

I truly and hopefully doubt all the mass media can not keep up covering for this massive charade and national fraud being committed on the nation by the GOP - even as the Koch Corruption Conference convenes this weekend to audition and auction off carefully selected Presidential hopefuls to the highest bidder, even as the PP propaganda smear reaches new heights of folly and pretend politics, even as Nazi references about Obama are given a pass - how much longer can the CEO's of mass media, with all their personally owned corporate media toys and puppet script readers, keep covering for all the lies?

How many more pieces of oceanic passenger airline crash debris washing up on unknown shores can the media use to keep their patented media cloaking devices on full power?

When - or if the pessimists might add - the mass media starts doing their job as they promised when the free press got a mention and protection in the Constitution, when actual reporting of truth happens and the revolution IS being televised - when folks all over the land wake up from their national brain fart and realize the wannabe Emperors of the GOP really all have no clothes, maybe then we can all stop pretending the wannabe Emperors are all really not completely naked -you know what, it could the very well be a populist socialist in a landslide in the primary and the general.

I have no problem with that scenario unfolding - but is there any child left in America that has the courage to shout out in public what the public must already know?

The Emperor Has No Clothes, by Hans Christian Anderson, written in 1837


"This entire adventure in Iraq has been based on propaganda and manipulation. Eighty-seven billion dollars is too much to pay for the continuation of a war based on falsehoods. The Emperor has no clothes."

- U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd in a Senate Hearing speech October, 2003.

The Extreme and Violent Background of the Group Consulting on the Planned Parenthood Videos


"The anti-choice group Operation Rescue has been consulting with the Center for Medical Progress (a fake company used to infiltrate PP) to attack Planned Parenthood with deceptively edited footage. Operation Rescue attempts to stop the "Abortion Holocaust" by "systematically harassing" abortion clinic workers. The group's leadership includes a convicted felon who attempted to bomb an abortion clinic, and it once issued a press release saying the killer of an abortion doctor should have been able to argue it was a "justifiable defensive action."

Operation Rescue Consulting With Center For Medical Progress To Attack Planned Parenthood

Center For Medical Progress Produced Anti-Planned Parenthood Video "In Consultation With Operation Rescue." Operation Rescue says the Center for Medical Progress' (CMP) campaign attacking Planned Parenthood was created "in consultation with" their group. CMP has released deceptively edited videos against Planned Parenthood that have been called out by observers. [OperationRescue.org, accessed 7/21/15; Media Matters, 7/15/15]

Operation Rescue's Senior Policy Advisor Was Jailed For Attempting To Bomb An Abortion Clinic

Cheryl Sullenger Was Sentenced To Prison For Conspiring To Bomb An Abortion Clinic. Cheryl Sullenger's Operation Rescue biography states that she is the group's senior policy advisor and "has been involved in the pro-life movement since 1984." That involvement includes attempting to bomb a San Diego abortion clinic in 1987. The Los Angeles Times reported in 1988 of Sullenger's sentencing......."


Anyone not getting this is a massive and coordinated propaganda campaign by extremist pro-birth groups funded by GOP operatives is part of the problem, along with the idiot media that refuses to call a spade a spade.

PP is being "ACORNED".....it is 100% obvious.

A total fraud, but it seems fraud is as believable and solid as truth in America.

So for those Americans unconvinced that the pro-birth crowd will kill in the name of Jesus and the fetus, know that the group behind this propaganda is another in a long line of extremists:

A Long History of Violence

"According to NARAL Pro-Choice America, in the past three decades anti-abortion activists have targeted providers with more than 6,400 acts of violence including bombings, arsons, death threats, kidnappings, assaults, and murders, as well as more than 175,000 acts of disruption including bomb threats and harassing phone calls. Based on these numbers, abortion providers in the U.S. are confronted with violence every 1.7 days and deal with other forms of harassment 16 times each day."

Because the pandemic Christian religious extremism in America will also not be televised.
