KMBC Reporter Purposely Assembles Alternate Reality

Below, is a letter send by the Jackson County Republican Club to the local Kansas City, MO ABC affiliate after the station’s reporter attended a Todd Akin press conference organized by the club. The group continues to wait for a response from KMBC indicating whether or not the reporter’s actions were the standard operating procedures of the station:

Dear Ms. Smith

A week ago at the Lee’s Summit Republican headquarters, TV Channel 9, among others, sent a news team to a Congressman Todd Akin, (candidate for US Senate) press conference. KMBC was represented by a cameraman and commentator Michael Mahoney. A completely remarkable tableau then unfolded. Newscaster Mahoney gave detailed and frequent instructions to his cameraman throughout the conference/interview by hand signals. If parts of the Congressman’s remarks were controversial, Mahoney would signal to keep the camera rolling. If the remarks seemed to give traction for favorable reception to a wide audience, the cameraman immediately received instructions to cut the recording. The actions of Mr. Mahoney were so obvious and blatantly biased for an unfavorable news clip to those present, that several independent observers afterward came together to voice their amazement that a news channel of KMBC’s reputation would engage in such practices.

Absence of Malice, a popular motion picture from the early eighties, had a charged scene where Paul Newman confronted Miami Herald reporter, Sally Fields, with flawed journalism. Viewers were given the defining line when Paul Newman angrily retorted, “… the truth? You don’t write the truth. You write what you think.” Mr. Mahoney’s actions revealed a more significant transgression: A week ago this reporter put together before those present an alternate reality. He assembled what he wanted the public to think.

We bring this to your attention for your response. We would like to know if Mr. Mahoney’s actions correspond with the management policies of KMBC Channel 9?

Sincerely,

Jim Gamble – President

The Jackson County Republican Club

Those Who Cast The Votes Decide Nothing

By David O.

“Those who cast the votes decide nothing.  Those who count the votes decide everything.” 

Joseph Stalin

I’ve been saying it for the better part of a year.  His majesty, king Obama will not, he cannot allow himself to be defeated!  If he cannot get us into a declared war (in which case he stays in…watch closely what’s going on in the Middle-East), he will so corrupt the election process using fraud, and just down-right stealing of this election, that his re-election will be assured.

Now, there’s this…

(which slipped by me at first, but was brought to my attention today by my son)

So now, a Spanish company, with no US citizens on it’s board, and zero accountability to US voters will count some of our votes in in 4 states (plus DC) in November.  This will include votes cast by our military based overseas.  Spain BTW is mostly controlled by a liberal, socialist government.  The country is in financial crisis, and is begging for bail-outs.  Obama has been going to bat for them, putting pressure on lenders.  Do you see a connection?  Do you really think their count will be unbiased?  Do you wonder who really owns this company?  (we will probably never know)  The current CEO of this Spanish company was previously the VP and CFO for a telecom company based in…Chicago! (imagine that)

h/t yourdaddy.net

Pile that on top of the George Soros “SOS Project”, where he (and others) piled millions into getting liberal Democrats elected to Secretary of State positions in many states.  Why?…because the Secretary of State determines how votes are counted in all states, and in a close election, they decide who is the winner.  Don’t be fooled, this project is not dead…just in hiding.

Both sides have thousands of lawyers lined-up to challenge the election results in November.  With good reason! This will likely be the most corrupt election in US history.  Watch closely!

Now, read that quote from Joseph Stalin again!

O’s Got To Go

A Resolution In Support Of Todd Akin

Resolution – Todd Akin – 20120919

SEMO Fair – Parade Pictures – 09/10/12

Here are the pictures taken as I drove the truck through the parade.

People, don’t try this at home; I AM a professional!

Kudos

The U.S. House voted on Thursday to enact HJ Res 117, the stopgap Continuing Resolution spending measure, which will fund the Federal Government for the next six months… …again kicking the can down the road on any real and meaningful reform of the bloated and out-of-control Federal Government.

So, what was funded by this measure? Among others… …the USDA and its out-of-control welfare state; the Interior Department which is the home of the business-crushing EPA; the Department of Defense and its newly authorized powers of detention, support for Libya and Egypt, and, of course, Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare.  Yes, your fiscally responsible, Republican-controlled U.S. House voted to fund ObamaCare.

I was stunned and disappointed that V.P. Candidate and budget fiscal hawk, Paul Ryan, voted for the new spending and debt.

I was expecting our entire Republican delegation to vote in stride with the leadership, so is I was very heartened to see that Jo Ann Emerson, our self-proclaimed “True Conservative”, voted against the spending measure.  Assuming she voted against it for the right reasons, KUDOS TO HER!  Not finding a related press release, I contacted her district manager for a quote with no response at this writing.

Considering the 8th is an R + 15 district in the Cook Partisan Voting Index, she has no reason to worry about a challenge for her seat from the left.  Thus, we can hope Jo Ann will be the “True Conservative” and take the lead in fighting against the enslavement of our children to this crushing debt.  Winning the battle to balance the budget and pay off the debt would certainly be a legacy worthy of another bridge across the Mississippi.

Here is a summary of the bill from the Library of Congress:

Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013 – Makes continuing appropriations for FY2013.

On Obama’s Birth Certificate

By Tea Party associate Patrick Voelker:

When I have tried to explain how Obama’s birth certificate is the most complete forgery I have ever personally seen, many people think I’m a lunatic.

I have downloaded and examined this multi-layer document extensively and conclude with Arpaio and this article. I have worked with the software that was used to create this document for more than a decade and a half. My thousands of hours of experience with this software allows me to understand how this document can in NO way be legitimate. But try to explain It to the uneducated and inexperienced masses and their eyes glaze over and they brand you are a “birther loon”. Even Glenn Beck pokes fun at “birthers”. Bill O’Reilly poo-poos the “birthers”. I suppose it’s a holdover from our younger days when peer pressure controlled our beliefs and actions, most people don’t want to be set apart from the group. Can you say “herd mentality”?

We as a nation are ignorantly listening to the wrong crowd.

As people that are considerably more enlightened than Republicans and Democrats combined, we need not concern ourselves with the opinions of the stupid. The opinions they hold of us in their minds should be meaningless to us! We must be way beyond peer pressure at this point.

To those that mock my ideas or those of the Tea Party, I say “piss off”.

This article reveals that Mr. Netanyahu is done trying to deal with Obama and is burning a bridge. Look for things to start to happen rapidly.

 

Obama – In His Own Words

In 8 years, President Bush added $4 Trillion to the debt.  Candidate Obama, in 2008, called that “Irresponsible” and “Unpatriotic”.

So, what does President Obama call it when he himself added $5 Trillion to the debt in only 4 years?
