Fox “News” wants you to believe that President Obama is like Richard Nixon.
President Nixon had a secret “enemies list.” People on that list were harassed by the IRS, spied upon, etc. But only two people on Nixon's list were reporters. In contrast, the Obama administration doesn't want to deal with Fox News. That's a far cry from an enemies list. Moreover, Fox has earned this.
It's no surprise that Fox News has been carrying on a smear campaign ever since Obama was inaugurated. For example:
Fox News' War on the White House
Fox “News” has declared a propaganda war on our Nation's President. They want him overthrown. What they're doing should be illegal. If I had as many nasty lies told about me as Fox “News” has told us about President Obama, I wouldn't want to deal with them either. This isn't conservative media, this is spiteful GOP propaganda.
President of Media Matters, Eric E. Burns, has written in Huffington Post; “Fox is currently conducting a witch hunt against administration members. After Van Jones (whom I personally greatly admired) resigned, Hannity told a crowd, “We got rid of one, and my job starting tomorrow night is to get rid of every other one.””
Doesn't anybody remember Monica Lewinsky? That fiasco was the culmination of a 10 year campaign to destroy the Clintons. There really was a massive right-wing conspiracy. They tried everything. They made up stories. They abused the press. They humiliated our President over personal matters. And ultimately they came up with nothing significant. But they kept Clinton too busy to accomplish much.
I highly recommend the video The Hunting of the President. It documents quite thoroughly how the Clintons enemies pulled every dirty trick they could think of – and almost succeeded at a coup de gras.
The Hunting of the President
The wing-nut back stabbers almost succeeded at image assassination of President Clinton. That's what it was – an attempt to kill the president, politically.
...And they're at it again.
Only this time, they have total control over a major television “news” source – and significant influence over all the others.
To not do something about Fox's relentless attacks would be a sign of weakness. (With the resignation of Van Jones, the “Fox” already smells blood.)
In case you didn't know, a US court has determined that it is perfectly legal for this quasi “news” channel to lie. They have free rein to say anything they want without fear of regulators. And since competing news agencies have skeletons of their own to hide, don't expect them to reveal the truth about what is happening at Fox.
If America is to survive and prosper, we need to make logical decisions based upon true information. Anything else is self destructive. And by now, it should be quite apparent that this is not happening. Our nation is literally on the verge of collapse because of a number of awful decisions made based upon manipulated information.
This is a matter of utmost national security. But only the citizens of this country have the real power to do anything about it. Most importantly, we need to utilize the free market. Just stop watching Fox “News.” And let their advertisers know why. If Fox goes broke, the other news channels will quickly tow the line.
Those who pay the propaganda pundits don't care about the truth. They care only about power. Apparently, they see using a multitude of lies to manipulate the masses – as “managing the human herd” – with emotionally charged false information. Neither President Obama, nor the American people should put up with this blatant manipulation of our minds.
Our present actions determine our fate. We need to speak up, now. Or we will again be ignored – with consequences we haven't begun to imagine yet.
The wolf is at the door. We need to see this for what it is; a conspiracy to overthrow our government. There are those who want our leaders, and therefore our nation, to fail. They are far more dangerous than any terrorist. And yet, they pose as patriots.
Where the hell is Homeland Security?
Not only is Homeland Security silent, but they appear to be helping the conspirators. We hear of reports that law enforcement squads are extremely lenient towards protesters supported by the powers-that-be, even if they bring guns.
These people are entrenched!
And they like to use Karl Rove (Rovian) tactics; lies, cheats, and character assassination.
Speaking of Karl Rove (you know, the guy who had to leave the Bush Administration in disgrace). Karl Rove now has a job as a writer for the Wall Street Journal! The Wall Street Journal! That's right, Rupert Murdoch (Australian rag magnate, who now owns majority interest in the Wall Street Journal), is turning the Wall Street Journal into another Fox “News.”
But it's much bigger than this.
Other elected representatives have also had to endure these politically motivated attacks.
Example: Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have both been the subject of numerous political attacks – veiled as news. Even small local elections can be manipulated by local news affiliates. Consequently, the Rovians have a terrifyingly invasive amount of influence.
We have been manipulated into accepting exceptionally poor political decisions. Example: Documents show the Pentagon has used psyops (psychological operations) against the American people to manipulate us into supporting the invasion and occupation of Iraq. “The New York Times David Barstow won a Pulitzer Prize for reporting about how some retired generals, working as radio and television analysts, had been co-opted by the Pentagon to make its case for the war in Iraq, and how many of them also had undisclosed ties to companies that benefited from the policies they defended.”
A number of Rovian groups exist to extend the profits of numerous entrenched industry “leaders.”
Examples: A leaked memo shows that the coal industry was coordinating a propaganda blitz attacking global warming science. And industry backed anti-health care reform groups spent the Summer disrupting health care town hall meetings.
This has been going on for a long time.
Wires That Control the Public Mind
There are unscrupulous people who intend to invisibly run our government by manipulating the gullible.
If we allow them to, they will eventually overthrow America.
Yet, to a large extent, they already have.
They might achieve a coup de gras with Senator Harry Reid.
And since they have still been able to stonewall the House and Senate, they have effectively made it impossible for President Obama to enact any real change.
But they didn't overthrow President Clinton.
They can be stopped.
