The Drone Report

Ben Swann’s Reality Check is a regular feature of Cincinnati Fox 19.  Commenters on his Facebook page asked how he gets away with covering stories none of the other MSM will touch.  He said it’s because, despite it’s name, Fox 19 is not under the restraint of a big media corporation.  It is fully-employee owned and the reporters are allowed much greater editorial discretion.  That’s why “it’s the news you won’t hear anywhere else.”

Jane Fonda Memorial Wall — Very Heart Warming.

 
After more than 40 years, the Vietnam veterans of the United States of America have raised a phenomenal amount of money to memorialize another one of Hollywood’s loyal American citizens, who went out of their way to aid and abet the enemy and congratulate them on their treatment of U.S. POW‘s. The memorial says it all!

Yeah, I know, I got teary eyed when I saw this one too .

What ESPN Didn't Show You

On the night of November 14, 2011, the Green Bay Packers played against the Minnesota Vikings in Lambeau Field, Wisconsin. The ESPN cameras were there to record the football game.
Strangely, ESPN failed to show you this:

Rules of engagement.

 

Dear Civilians, ‘We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.

For those of you who can’t join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

Any Questions?

1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem – kick their ass.

2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest – kick their ass.

3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling others that you used to be ‘Special Forces’.
Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not ask them, ‘Do you fly a jet?’ Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the *US Coast Guard* ‘non-military’, inform them of their mistake – and kick their ass.

7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her – of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.

9. ‘Your mama wears combat boots’ never made sense to me – stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore would kick your ass!

10. ‘Flyboy’ (*Air Force*), ‘Jarhead’ (*Marines*), ‘Grunt’ (*Army*), ‘Squid’ (*Navy*), ‘Puddle Jumpers‘ (*Coast Guard*), etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Using them could get your ass kicked..

11. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our Country would get it’s ass kicked.

12. ‘It’s the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.’

‘It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.’

AND ONE MORE:

  1. If you ever see anyone singing the national anthem in Spanish – KICK THEIR ASS

Alan Simpson is a POS

Which former Republican senator thinks Obama is groovy and peachy and just way smarter than anyone alive?
The correct answer is “Alan Simpson”.
On August 5, 2011, referring to Obama’s debt ceiling negotiation with the Congressional Republicans, Simpson said in an interview with the Denver Post: “This guy is a little bit smarter than some of the guys who are trying to hammer him. They ought to give it up.”
Alan Simpson, a U. S. Senator from Wyoming for 18 years (1979-1997), was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Alan’s dad was Milward Simpson, a former Governor of Wyoming (1955–1959) as well as a U.S. Senator from Wyoming (1962–1967) who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Sen. Alan Simpson has been an outspoken advocate for access to abortion, calling the killing of tiny defenseless babies “the precious right of privacy”. He supports gay and lesbian rights, and is openly critical of the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

In 2010, Obama appointed good ol’ Alan to co-chair the useless bipartisan deficit reduction group, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.
When the commission issued its draft proposals to help erase the federal government’s then-$13.8 trillion debt — proposals that included raising the Social Security retirement age from 65 to 69 to bring in $1 trillion more in tax revenue — liberals and conservatives alike reacted with strong opposition. That prompted Simpson to whine to Wyoming’s Trib.com:

“I’ve never had any nastier mail or [been in a] more difficult position in my life. Just vicious. People I’ve known, relatives [saying], ‘You son of a bitch. How could you do this?’ We had the greatest generation — I think this is the greediest generation.”

Then Simpson poured oil on the fire he’d lit. In a letter responding to criticisms by a group representing older women, Simpson called Social Security “a milk cow with 310 million tits.” (You can read his e-mail here.)
That prompted this response from an anonymous farmer in Montana — a response that has gone viral:

“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight.

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public tit for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 Years old. I am now 63).

3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to Age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable ASS.”

In his youth, Alan Simpson was a juvenile delinquent.
In high school, Simpson and some friends “went out to do damage” and torched an abandoned federal government war relocation structure, a crime now punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The gang also went shooting in their community, firing their 22 caliber rifles at mailboxes, blowing holes in several and killing a cow.
Simpson pled guilty to destroying government property and got two years of probation. Simpson’s words to the Court were “I was a monster.” [Source: Wikipedia]
Earth to Alan Simpson: You’re still a monster.

What Do Conservatives Do Now?


Yesterday, the disastrous so-called Budget Control Act of 2011 became law. The law increases the US debt limit by more than $2 trillion; promises spending cuts that include defense; and creates a Super Committee of 12 who can raise taxes and cut entitlements.
Many conservatives feel dismayed and discouraged. We’ve played, peacefully, by the rules. We formed or joined TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party groups; blogged; wrote/called the White House and our representatives in Washington, DC; and dutifully trotted to the voting booths last November 2nd. Our efforts were rewarded with a historic midterm election that voted in a tidal wave of Republicans to state governorships, to the U.S. Senate, and to form a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Despite all our efforts, the Republicans in the House caved in and approved the debt deal with Obama. And so, yesterday Obama signed the bill into law.
Adding to our disillusionment is the fact that 70% of the GOP freshman class had voted to support the budget deal, among them is Florida’s Allen West. Many of the turncoats had been elected last November with the support of the Tea Party movement whose major cause is precisely that of cutting federal spending and reducing deficits.
So what do we do now?
I asked the other writers of the Fellowship to do some brainstorming. Simply and starkly, there really are only three choices:
1. Continue to work within the system:
We redouble our efforts and get ready for the 2012 elections. We vote out the GOP turncoats; re-elect those Republicans who had voted against the debt deal (go here for their names); vote for a true conservative in the Republican presidential primary; and most important of all, get Obama out of the White House! On that last task, here’s a hopeful message from political maven Dick Morris:

2. Overthrow the present corrupt system and restore the Constitution:
That’s a move never to be taken lightly, not only because of the certain losses of life and property, but also because of the uncertainty of success. As best as I know, there is not even a whiff of serious disaffection, even less of rebellion, among the U.S. military. But without the backing of the military, or at least a part of it, attempting a second American Revolution is quixotic and suicidal.
3. Drop out of the system:
We hit the bastards in the wallet and do whatever we can to cut off the flow of cash to Washington. We stop spending other than absolute necessities; do cash only transactions; cut up our credit cards; get our money out of banks, or at a minimum out of global banks and into local banks and credit unions. We circle the wagons, protect the homestead, and go into survivalist mode.
Seriously though, how many of us can or will do that?
So in the end, I keep coming back to Option One: Work Within the System. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is there more I can do, in labor and dollars, to get the right people into office?
  • Am I in good fighting shape — physically, mentally, spiritually — for the battle? If not, get in shape!
  • If I am able (financially, family-wise) and have the aptitude (knowledge and understanding of politics; public speaking) to run for public office, why am I not doing it? Whom am I waiting for?
  • If I feel besieged, what about those House Republicans who went against their leader, that spineless RINO John Boehner, and voted against the debt deal? If your Congressman/woman is one of the 66 Samurai, send them a “Thank You” note or phonecall! (go here for the names of the 66).

Lastly, do not give in to despair. That’s a sure way for our opponents to win.
There is always hope.

I welcome your suggestions, ideas, proposals.

Listen to this bozo defend China’s borders and sovereignty then rant against America!  Why should any town, county or state in America tamely give up freedom and sovereignty to fall in with this maniac’s United Nations program?  ~LTG
