    NewsBull Continues Unabated

    The lamestream media told you:

    The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

    News coverage of government activity has gotten so bad I'm finding it hard to go over it item by item like I usually do.

    The contents of the latest pork giveaway bill are swept under the lamestream rug, and the bill number isn't even mentioned so you could go look for yourself. The web is flooded with solid analysis, but the TV blares only the latest government announcement about how the president urges everyone to get in line. OK, OK, some stations, out of character, did mention that some of the "tax cuts" are really tax handouts to people who didn't pay taxes. No calls for impeachment were made.

    The appointment of a treasury secretary happened so fast you could barely comment, and you would -- since the man selected helped orchestrate the current problem, his financial benefit from the disaster is unexamined, and his refusal to pay his taxes would have landed you (but not him) in jail. Congress, in an ultimate act of blatant corruption, put him in charge of your tax dollars. What do you say about that except, "Where's my pitchfork?"

    The "government money" CNN keeps talking about is a lie. Government has no money -- aside from being beyond flat broke. That's MY money and YOUR money they're talking about. When CNN says "government bailout dollars," know full well it's YOUR dollars, confiscated before you even get them by "withholding taxes" (what a clever idea!!). They confiscate more than you owe, so they can make you feel good when you get back the excess they took from you (and earned interest on at your expense). The media treats it as if it's a perfectly fine plan.

    Caroline Kennedy drops out of sight for reasons reporters would not disclose, and the media brushes over that like it doesn't matter. The selected alternate, Kirsten Gillibrand, is A rated by the NRA but the media wont tell you that, only that she's from upstate so there's up/down balance (as if anyone can balance the consummate evil and deception of Charles Schumer).

    The gun business continues to thrive, and CCW classes are sold out for months, but the media only trumpets bad business news. Dr. John Lott points out facts while the media has gone over to complete hype and hyperventilation -- the economy is nowhere near as bad as the fear mongers keep saying:

    --Almost a third of all months during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s had an unemployment rate as high or higher than it is now. http://tinyurl.com/6rbva

    --The inflation rate today is incredibly low. Over the last year, the inflation rate has been 0.1 percent. There is only one year since 1960 when the inflation rate was as low as 0.7 percent (1961). http://tinyurl.com/qu3zp

    -- GDP growth might have fallen slightly by 0.5 percent during the third quarter last year, but that is after it had grown at 2.8 percent the previous quarter. Americans were still wealthier than they were at the beginning of the year. http://tinyurl.com/2d5zdv

    What gets in the way of real reporting? Is it the media's self-indulgent adulation and disguise of a cigarette-smoking half-white half-Muslim lefty (as in southpaw) of uncertain birthright who twice flubbed and never fully took his oath of office and can't dance, whose supporters defaced the U.S. flag by festooning it with slogans and his image in his honor? Is it the Obama who wants to appease, chat with and gratify the Muslim radicals whose al-Qaida leaders have called him a house n*gger?

    Reporters report that "My job to the Muslim world is to communicate the Americans are not your enemy," says Obama. Say what? No reporters ask him any pointed questions about it? We're not their enemy? They're not ours? They have sworn death to America, right? We're not the great Satan anymore?

    Nancy Pelosi lies through her teeth straight into the camera saying $200 million of our cash will help reduce costs and stimulate the economy if we buy condoms for poor people. Family planning dollars will reduce costs to the states (she said it three times to CNN).

    So which is it -- she wants more poor babies to have more social security contributors, more welfare Moms, and more democrat voters, or less of all the above to reduce costs? Where does the Constitution give anyone any power to buy condoms? Hint: it doesn't. They are out of line and deserve to be removed from office for violation of their oaths. Why do states need to reduce costs by regulating baby making?

    The theft of the treasury is unbridled and monstrous, the media's eye on it is non-existent, they are promoting it. The closest thing to media oversight is Lou Dobbs and others asking fecklessly, "What is going on?" and "What's happening?" and "Do they think we're stupid?" and "How much of this do they think we can stand?" These are actual quotes. They should be saying, "Arrest these people now. Rise up and storm your representatives offices." Stop the theft of the Treasury," not "What's going on?"

    Which leads me to the followup from the Bill of Rights Day event on Dec. 15.
    We need to enforce the Bill of Rights against our own government. That's what it's for, and that's what we must do.

    Doing it is dangerous. It borders on insurrection, sedition, stopping powerful government operatives from its evil ways. They're not going to like that. They now have a standing army, civilian and military, that obeys their commands, and has more power than you do -- exactly what the Founders said they should never have.

    You can't appear like a mob that must be put down. It must be civilized, non violent, affirmative, dispositive (look it up).

    If you do anything remotely like taking up arms to fight back, you will be portrayed by the power brokers and in the media as a wacked-out lunatic-fringe borderline psycho domestic terrorist mad-dog evildoer, after you're machine gunned by the flack-jacketed righteous forces of good, run by the U.S. Department of Security And Entitlements. That's not what you want.

    The current administration is planning to demand changes in auto manufacture, and specify targets for fuel efficiency. Any delegated authority to do so cannot be found in the Constitution. News media have failed to report on this abuse of power. It is the de facto socialization of an industry. Socialism is an arch enemy of freedom and the American way. The news media is silent (or acquiescent or supportive, which is worse).

    Henry Paulson, who has practically fallen off the face of the news, insisted a few months ago that if we didn't reallocate our money through him to the banks and credit outfits, the sky would fall and we'd be doomed. Only half the money was sent ($350 billion), the banks won't account for it, no one went to prison for theft, and the sky didn't fall.

    Where the "reporters" at? Where the money? Why didn't the sky fall? Can we expect a correction? The "news" has gotten so weak it's hard to know where to chastise it. How about, everywhere.

    Has anybody up there mentioned that you can't get out of debt by going deeper into debt? Or pointed out the fact that we don't have the trillion dollars Congress, pushed by their new leader, plans to spend?

    My friends know that anything government "gives away" is something it took from someone else -- government makes nothing, it only takes from one and redistributes. Is that part of freedom? Is that what the Constitution authorizes? Can we count on agents of government to put themselves in jail for breaking the laws they write and enforce, through courts they own and operate?

    It is reaching the tipping point but for one small factor. Nearly half the people are at the feeding trough, taking the blood money the other half is forced to shell out. The half in the takings coalition is not going to see the injustice, they're going to see the free cash and resist any effort to put it back into the pockets of the people who earned it.

    Yes, that's corrupt and immoral. But it's hard to make a man understand something when his livelihood depends on not understanding it (Upton Sinclair gave us those wise words).

    This brings us back to a fundamental: Freedom is a minority movement.

    The numbers of people writing to me saying they're ready to lock and load is increasing.

    The secret will be to effect change without appearing like a mob that has to be put down. There's hope in my Bill of Rights Day report, which I mentioned at the start, and you should read. It has some solutions than can work.

    If this report works for you --
