Understanding Media Bias

October 12, 2017

As a highly trained former Intelligence Analyst at the National Security Agency, I understand the subtleties of media bias that go unnoticed by most people. Let’s say Russia challenged the United States to a one mile foot race. The fastest person from each country ran the race and the American crossed the finish line first.

The media reported that the Russian finished second while the American finished next to last. All the truth detectors like Snopes, would gleefully report that the news was truthful. The facts cannot be disputed but the report was highly misleading. Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, this was the type of propaganda routinely seen in Pravda, the Soviet News agency.

Media bias is the bias or perceived bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered. The term “media bias” implies a pervasive or widespread bias contravening the standards of journalism, rather than the perspective of an individual journalist or article. The direction and degree of media bias is widely disputed.

Practical limitations to media neutrality include the inability of journalists to report all available stories and facts, and the requirement that selected facts be linked into a coherent narrative. Market forces that result in a biased presentation include the ownership of the news source, concentration of media ownership, the selection of staff, the preferences of an intended audience, and pressure from advertisers.

There are a number of national and international watchdog groups that report on bias in the media but most are more biased than the media they watch.

Clearly, some media in the United States systematically emphasize one particular point of view in a way that contravenes the standards of professional journalism. Claims of media bias in the United States include claims of liberal bias, conservative bias, mainstream bias, and corporate bias.

CNN is especially highlighted by President Trump for what he calls, “Fake News.” CNN was created by Ted Turner in 1980. Turner was expelled from Brown University for having a girl in his Dorm Room. In 1989 he was awarded an Honorary B.A. Degree from the University that had kicked him out. That was two years before he married his third wife, Jane Fonda. Oh, the lives of the rich and famous liberals!

Ted Turner’s media empire began with his father’s billboard business, Turner Outdoor Advertising, which he took over in 1963 after his father’s suicide. It was worth $1 million. His purchase of an Atlanta UHF station in 1970 began the Turner Broadcasting System. CNN revolutionized news media, covering the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 and the Persian Gulf War in 1991. Turner turned the Atlanta Braves baseball team into a nationally popular franchise and launched the charitable Goodwill Games. He helped revive interest in professional wrestling by buying World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Turner’s penchant for controversial statements earned him the nicknames “The Mouth of the South” and “Captain Outrageous”. Turner also devoted his assets to environmental causes. He was the largest private landowner in the United States until John C. Malone surpassed him in 2011. He uses much of his land for ranches to re-popularize bison meat (for his Ted’s Montana Grill chain), amassing the largest herd in the world. He also created the environmental-themed animated series Captain Planet and the Planeteers.

To understand CNN, I thought you should understand the father of CNN. In my opinion, traditional journalism was on life support for a long time before it expired last year. I looked at a lot of charts that placed media based on their bias. This chart by Sharyl Attkisson is depicted because I believe it’s the best. I am a deplorable member of the vast right wing conspiracy who loves America and flew combat missions to defend America. I think Ted Turner did build his media empire, not the government even though they may have built the roads that lead to his property.

When the top story at CNN turns out to be the First Lady boarding Air Force One wearing high heels on her way to visit Hurricane ravaged Texas, some people might scratch their heads. Since the First Lady participates in numerous activities during every single day, I knew that she changes attire multiple times. I had no expectation that she would wear heels in Texas and she didn’t.

Just how negative is the coverage of President Donald Trump? Let’s look at a Harvard Study.

The Harvard scholars analyzed the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the main newscasts (not talk shows) of CBS, CNN, Fox and NBC during Trump’s initial time in office. They found, to no one’s surprise, that Trump absolutely dominated news coverage in the first 100 days. And then they found that news coverage was solidly negative — 80 percent negative among those outlets studied, versus 20 percent positive. The numbers for previous presidents: Barack Obama, 41 percent negative, 59 percent positive; George W. Bush, 57 percent negative, 43 percent positive; and Bill Clinton, 60 percent negative, 40 percent positive.

The talk shows, like Morning Joe and Rachel Maddow, might really skew the numbers but they were ignored. MSNBC didn’t even make the study but I’m sure they never said one positive thing about our President. The coverage of some news organizations was so negative, according to the Harvard study, that it seems hard to argue that the coverage was anywhere near a neutral presentation of facts. Assessing the tone of news coverage, the Harvard researchers found that CNN’s Trump coverage was 93 percent negative, and seven percent positive. The researchers found the same numbers for NBC.

Others were slightly less negative. The Harvard team found that CBS coverage was 91 percent negative and 9 percent positive. New York Times coverage was 87 percent negative and 13 percent positive. Washington Post coverage was 83 percent negative and 17 percent positive. Wall Street Journal coverage was 70 percent negative and 30 percent positive. And Fox News coverage also leaned to the negative, but only slightly: 52 percent negative to 48 percent positive.

Ninety-three percent negative — that’s a lot by anybody’s standards. “CNN and NBC’s coverage was the most unrelenting — negative stories about Trump outpaced positive ones by 13-to-1 on the two networks,” the study noted. “Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity.”

Factor in the fact that these media outlets ignore a lot of negative information about Hillary Clinton and other Democrats. I would also like to note that Fox News never fails to report biased Democrat talking points and showed video clips of Hillary Clinton making arguments against President Trump over and over again. You would never see the other networks giving the same coverage to President Trump, Trey Gowdy, Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh. The totality of the united effort in opposition to our President is staggering. President Trump poured gasoline on the media and made them madder by the minute until their coverage was seething with vitriolic hatred.

Fox was a top 10 donor to the Clinton’s and had to support their agenda while pretending to be fair and balanced. Did Fox fool you? I’m down to Sean Hannity and very few others. Fox hung the late Alan Colmes around Sean’s neck in the beginning and forces the likes of Geraldo, Juan and Perino on him from time to time. I change channels when they come on along with Never Trumpers like Chris Wallace and Shep Smith. I can’t get OAN yet but I’m working on dumping Cox Communications at the first opportunity. I started resolutepost.com to counter the corrupt media and the increasingly troublesome social media. I carried the Marsha Blackburn campaign ad that was blocked by Twitter and anticipate doing the same thing in the future as Twitter, Facebook and Google place their boots on the necks of citizens exercising their Freedom of Speech Rights.

Special interest groups and corporations pay big bucks to journalists and politicians to speak knowing full well they are buying good will and special treatment. All that money that went to Hillary could have bought all the tea in China.

The media, after putting lipstick on politicians for months, end up giving them the big prize: their Endorsement. How surprising that the New York Times and Washington Post, after long and painstaking research, would endorse the likes of Hillary Clinton.

The corrupt media is not above using scare tactics to get their way. CNN predicted the Stock Market would crash if Trump was elected. Unless you live under a rock or you’re a Harvard Professor, you know the opposite is what actually happened beginning on the day President Trump was elected. The media gave him less than a 10% chance and joked about it. “Do you ever actually laugh when you watch Donald Trump?,” Jimmy Kimmel asked Obama, who responded that he does, most of the time.

Obama joked about a tweet from Trump: “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!”

“At least I’ll go down as a president,” Obama quipped and the Kimmel audience roared with laughter. Obama also said and CNN reported that, “The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president.” On the campaign trail, “Obama has taken a considerably more foreboding tone toward Trump, joining other Democratic all-stars like Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, and others calling Trump unfit for the White House.”

They threw the book and the kitchen sink at Donald Trump and he’s still standing and America is growing stronger and more prosperous by the minute. All those who laughed at the suggestion Donald Trump could get elected, like George Stephanopoulos and a legion of know-it-all’s, have learned that the joke was on them.

WHY AMERICA MUST HAVE TRUMP✯CRUZ!

November 19, 2015

TrumpCruzWP

Are you tired of being the World’s Sugar Daddy and All Day Sucker?

Illegal Aliens do not need Obama, Bush, Rubio, Kasich, Democrats and RINOs to give them anything other than a ticket across the border.

HERE ARE THE DIRTY FACTS:

It is common knowledge in any Hispanic, Islamic or other undocumented community in this country that an identity WITH a Social Security number can be purchased for $300 to $500. (I think even Obama may have one!)

It is a common practice for illegal’s to have several… Its a cultural thing.

They consider it money in the bank!

They will collect government benefits with one or two of them and then work with another while collecting unemployment with yet another.

THAT is one of the reasons that they can afford to work for WAY less than any American citizen or legal immigrant can.

THAT is one of the reasons they are able to send so much money to relatives in their own countries. If Illegal Alien Financial Activity was a company, it would be the largest company in America!

All this because our own government pays illegal’s to be here!!!

Is this a known scheme by our liberal government to take a huge chunk of our economy and simply give it to Mexico and scores of other countries?

In return for what?

Why, votes, of course!

Several ID’s means, THEY CAN VOTE SEVERAL TIMES!!! That’s how some precincts have turnouts over 100%. Combine that with the dead Democrat votes and it’s easy to see how some of the wacko birds get elected.

After all… we are probably too stupid to know any better according to Professor Jonathan Gruber and other brilliant liberals.

That is also why illegal aliens seldom show up for court… they are ghosts!!!

If the government wants you or I, for anything from a parking ticket to back taxes, they know just where to find us.

How are they ever going to find an illegal when he or she is several identities deep? They cannot and probably don’t want to anyway!!!

These invaders feel that if we are dumb enough to set up a system that is so easy to scam, they would be foolish not to take advantage of it. THAT is why they come here in the first place!

They have absolutely nothing to lose… if their plan falls apart they get a free ticket back to their home country.

Many are decent people, but… it’s a package deal… we get the criminals, drug lords, rapists, gangs and murderers too.

Do you believe for one second that not one single mainstream media network knows about this scam! I believe they all know about it! The Republican traitors MUST be aware of this also.

If this became common knowledge outside of the illegal alien communities and EVERYONE did the same thing, our whole system would collapse overnight! At this rate it gets closer to collapse every day as the New Speaker and his 40 thieves vote with the Democrats to keep raising the debt ceiling to enable and perpetuate this and many other scams.

If more members of the “generational food stamp crowd” ever found out that buying another identity for benefits was much easier and less painful than having another kid…it would become a gold rush. Instead of driving welfare Cadillac’s they could be driving Lamborghinis. Our government would probably even pay for up to seven fraudulent IDs per person?

Is that why it is never talked about? Would Americans who feel sympathy for these people still feel compassionate if they knew the truth?

As if this was not enough, Illegal Aliens murder more people in the United States EVERY year than were killed during the Pearl Harbor attack! That’s about 9000 a year with hardly a headline!

We lost 3000 on 9/11, but, the more than 90,000 killed since then, by illegal aliens, is a much bigger story.

Why isn’t the media screaming about this at the top of their lungs? Conservative outlets are just as guilty as the liberal ones for disseminating information to influence our opinions on the issue of illegal aliens. Not only does our government not care, but also there are hundreds of Sanctuary Cities conspiring with these illegal aliens.

Following is the number of illegal aliens receiving welfare and free healthcare in Russia and China: ZERO (0).

Remember, actual statistics are almost impossible to dig out of government reports but clearly we have a problem. The only way the average citizen, who sips a Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino while watching the happy talking heads on Good Morning America, will EVER suspect what is causing the fall of America is if you share this and spread the word from Sea to Shining Sea.

The Global Terrorism Threat

March 27, 2014

~~~~~~~~2a

I know your expectations are low with Secretaries of State like Hillary “Saul Alinsky” Clinton and John “Vietnam Veteran Accuser” Kerry. Therefore, I will take some time out of my day to enlighten you about the threat to your security.

Your State Department lists FOUR Countries as State Sponsors of Terrorism: Iran, Cuba, Syria and Sudan. This may shock you since 15 of the 19 hijackers who hijacked four jet airliners on 911 were Saudi Arabian citizens. In fact, the King who Barack Obama bowed down to rules Saudi Arabia, the country it is said to be the world’s largest source of funds for Salafi jihadist terrorist militant groups, such as al-Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban, and Lashkar-e-Taiba in South Asia, and donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide, according to Hillary Clinton. According to a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state, “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups.”

You also may be alert enough to notice that countries like North Korea, Libya, Russia and China are noticeably absent.

Libya as far back as 1969 supported, with weapon supplies, training camps located within Libya and monetary finances, an array of armed paramilitary groups both including the Provisional Irish Republican Army, the Basque Fatherland and Liberty, the Umkhonto We Sizwe, the Polisario Front, the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Moro National Liberation Front of the Philippines. Libya was removed from the United States list of terrorist supporting nations after it had ended all of its support for armed groups and the development of weapons of mass destruction. A lawyer representing one of the whistleblowers with knowledge of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi says 400 surface-to-air missiles were “diverted to Libya” during the attack and fell into “the hands of some very ugly people.” In an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station WMAL, Beltway lawyer Joe diGenova said he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles,”

Even more disturbing are the Libyan arms that went missing during the fighting to remove Col Muammar Gaddafi including 20,000 surface to air missiles. Those weapons are now spreading ever further afield, being used in conflicts as far apart as Niger, Somalia, Gaza and Syria, a UN report says. The U.S. continues to give Libya about a billion dollars in foreign aid.

Then there is Barack’s buddy Vladimir. Russia has their Edward Snowden, his name is Stanislav Lunev, a former Soviet Military officer born in 1946 in Leningrad. the highest-ranking Main Intelligence Directorate officer to defect from Russia to the United States. He worked as an intelligence officer in Singapore in 1978, in China from 1980, and in the United States from 1988. He defected to U.S. authorities in 1992. Since then he has worked as a consultant to the FBI and CIA. He remains in the FBI’s Witness Protection Program. According to Lunev, a probable scenario in the event of war would be poisoning of the Potomac River with chemical or biological weapons, “targeting the residents of Washington DC.” He also noted that it is “likely” that operatives have placed already “poison supplies near the tributaries to major US reservoirs.” That was confirmed by Alexander Kouzminov who was responsible for transporting dangerous pathogens from around the world for Russian program of biological weapons in the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s. He described a variety of biological terrorism acts that would be carried out on the order of the Russian President in the event of hostilities, including poisoning public drinking-water supplies and food processing plants. US Congressman Curt Weldon supported claims by Lunev but noted that Lunev had “exaggerated things” according to the FBI. Our government calls it Biological Warfare, the Holy Bible calls it Pestilence. But wait, Barack Obama says the Cold War has been over for many years. Why would we ever dare to worry about Russia?

I don’t think anybody who is reading this needs to be explained the sordid past of North Korea or that they possess nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. I do not doubt that they would use these weapons on anybody at any time. Since they have nukes, it is safe to assume their scientists have proliferated them to Iran and who knows who else. If the radicalized NSA would do their job instead of spying on Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, Governors and me, perhaps they would know more about OUR REAL ENEMIES?

So, what about China? China’s nuclear arsenal poses the most serious “mortal threat” to the United States among nation states, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate. In candid testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mr. Clapper said he considered China the most significant threat among nation states, with Russia posing the second-greatest threat. He later clarified the comments by saying he did not assess that China or Russia had the intention to launch an attack on the United States. The testimony contrasts with statements by Obama administration officials who have sought to highlight the dangers of Iran and North Korea while paying less attention to China and Russia. Mr. Clapper said he does not assess that North Korea and Iran pose greater strategic threats because they lack the forces that Russia and China have that could deliver a nuclear attack on the United States. Dear Mr. Clapper, THE UNITED STATES IS NOT SECURE!!!! Until our borders and 92,000 miles of coastline are secure, ANY country or terrorist group has the capacity to cross our borders or coastlines with weapons of mass destruction.

Does, “Establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense” ring a bell? The Obama Administration sees Conservatives, Veterans, Christians and Wage Earners as THE ENEMY. Until we have a regime change, we must look out for ourselves and assume that Weapons of Mass Destruction are pre-positioned on United States soil and that our enemies are living among us at this very second. The truth of the matter is that very few people outside of Israel, Canada, Australia and Japan care one iota about us, the American People. It certainly looks like very few people in Washington, DC care about us either. Keep your powder dry and pay attention to what you do and where you go. Just because Yemen, Somalia, Mexico and Egypt are not on the State Department list does not mean they are safe. There are large and small cities in the United States that are not safe. You know Chicago is dangerous but how many of your friends know that North Little Rock, Arkansas is the fifth most dangerous small city in America? All I’m saying is stay alert and if you see something, say something.

Putin has a Pen and a Gun

March 1, 2014

~~~~~~~~5

In 1983 I attended a National Defense University Joint Course where we looked at several global scenarios and war gamed them. The U.S. had come through a period of military decline where Naval Ships could not operate because of a lack of fuel, Army Tanks had to cannibalize other Tanks so that half of them could be operational and Air Force planes could not fly because pilots were not trained. I can’t speak for the military as a whole but my morale was recovering from the Jimmy Carter Presidency and the Thermostat Police who made sure I was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. A government that spent $6 million dollars on me in pilot training even before I started training to fly jet fighters, had no interest in my physical comfort.

During the Presidential Campaign of 1980, an important Campaign Plank for Ronald Reagan was to build a 600 Ship Navy. In 1983 the total Naval Active Ship Fleet totaled 533 including 13 Aircraft Carriers. Today that number has dropped to 288 Ships including 11 Aircraft Carriers. The total Active Military Force numbered over two million personnel in 1983, today that number has dropped to below one and a half million and continues to decline. In simple terms, our total Active Duty Military Personnel number about the same as the population of San Antonio, Texas.

In my day I had the privilege of commanding a Provisional Wing including U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marine, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard and Canadian Air Force Fighter, Tanker, AWACS, Reconnaissance and Tactical Airlift Forces. I am a strong advocate for the Navy and their ability to project power globally. Often a Naval presence can be a stabilizing force without the actual use of force. All our services work synergistically to defend America and I am proud of every man and woman who wears or ever wore the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. We have come too far and too much American blood has been shed providing peace and stability on Earth to throw in the towel now.

While America has been unilaterally disarming and twiddled our thumbs while millions of illegal aliens poured across our borders and penetrated our 92,000 miles of coastline, a huge vacuum has been created. While Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security at home following the end of the Cold War, Americans are not safe. Just as nobody knows what our Ambassador was doing in Benghazi on 9/11, nobody knows just how many illegal aliens there are in our country. It could be 20 million, 30 million or 50 million? Nobody knows who they are. Certainly there are Iranians because Iranian books have been found discarded on the well worn trail leading from our southern border. There are illegal’s from Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria. It is reported that some Chinese have paid $50,000 for safe passage through the hole in the fence. There must be Russians here as well. Right now they all seem content to watch America self destruct.

With the recent use of Chemical Weapons in Syria it should be apparent to even the National Security Agency that those weapons came from Iraq and that Syria is the repository for Saddam’s WMD’s that could not be found. Syria is the headquarters for numerous terrorist organizations. Terrorists who arrive in Syria are whisked away to their headquarters. Their passports are never stamped. Who knows what lurks in that country? There are Soviet Suitcase Nukes that are unaccounted for and 20,000 shoulder launched surface to air missiles missing from Libya. Where are those weapons? There is no reason to believe they can’t be right here in the Unites States. The Coast Guard is too small to secure 92,000 miles of coastline and Democrat and Republican Administrations have refused to secure our borders.

The USSR was embarrassed by Reagan. They tore down that wall and withdrew into their shell. They disappeared from the world scene but they did not forget. Today Russia is reinvigorated with a strong leader in Vladimir Putin and they are on the move. The period between late 2011 and early 2012 brought news of the highest-ever level of orders for naval equipment placed by the Kremlin since the collapse of the Soviet Union. In addition, this period was marked by the Kremlin leaders expressing their dissatisfaction with the deployment of US antimissile systems in Europe and promising an “asymmetric reply”.

This “reply” calls for keeping Russian nuclear deterrent forces intact and able to meet new challenges from threatening forces. In late 2011 Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin made it clear who these forces are: the US and NATO. In the Kremlin’s eyes, the missile interceptor shield being created in Western Europe destroys the existing strategic balance between US and Russia. So, the nuclear deterrent forces shall be upgraded according to these new realities. Construction of strategic submarines, along with refit and modernization of in-service nuclear assets is a move in this direction.

Make no mistake, neither the Russian nor the American economies are anything to brag about. As Russia embraces Capitalism, America is sliding into Marxism leading to a classless society. However, Russian expansion should give pause to even the lowest low information voters in America. As in the days of Noah, Americans are oblivious to influences outside of their world of Wal-Mart, sports arenas, dumbed down TV shows and the love life of their favorite celebrities. While America fiddles, Vladimir Putin is inking deals to create Russian Military Bases in Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Singapore, the Seychelles (a French speaking country in the Indian ocean) and several other countries. To facilitate this expansion, Secretary of State Kerry has said the U.S. no longer cares about that pesky Monroe Doctrine.

I’m not sure oblivious Americans inside and outside the Obama Administration ever heard of the Monroe Doctrine? Established in 1823, it stated that further efforts by European nations to colonize land or interfere with states in North or South America would be viewed as acts of aggression requiring U.S. intervention. It worked pretty well for 190 years. Recently Russian Spy Ships have been visiting Cuba and Russian Nuclear Submarines armed with Nuclear Missiles have been cruising in the Gulf of Mexico undetected. Then there was that Cuban Missile Crisis that brought the Super Powers to the brink of Nuclear War. Today, Vladimir Putin senses extreme weakness on the part of the Obama Administration and sees no impediment to doing whatever the hell he wants to do wherever he wants to do it. Putin no more fears Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood Administration than he fears a Mexican Chihuahua. The void created by U.S. Base Closures and diminished influence is being filled at a rapid pace.

At the same time, both China and Japan have made great progress in strengthening their Navies. China now has an Aircraft Carrier and plans for the eventual construction of several more. Beijing continues the development and manufacture of nuclear submarines and without Russian permission, China has launched into production of the J-11, a clone of the Sukhoi Su-27 land-based fighter, and the J-15, a clone of the Su-33 deck fighter. Japan, apparently sensing the unreliability of the United States, has been dramatically expanding her self-defense capabilities with a number of very advanced blue-water assets of previously unknown classes. Japan has built a series of large conventional submarines and is working on more advanced ones featuring extended sea autonomy and stealthiness.

Our government is spying on our most trusted allies while Russian Subs mingle with Cruise Ships in the Gulf and Terrorists mingle with citizens in our shopping malls. America’s top Generals and Admirals have been ousted and it looks like the Obama Administration is at war with our military personnel. Curtis LeMay’s Strategic Air Command is gone as our military is being turned into a social experiment. People don’t know who to fear the most, Putin or Obama. I know one thing for sure, Marxism has never worked and never will work. It destroys societies, creates political prisons and produces famine. In North Korea, millions die of starvation while a few insiders are able to frolic with Dennis Rodman and ride around in a 1970 Lincoln Continental. Is that the Liberal idea of utopia? Is that the great Marxist dream? What is your choice, the rice paddies or the salt mines?

Now just set back, order a pizza and tune into Good Morning America or All Things Considered. Don’t bother yourself with the realities of the world, maybe you will learn a new recipe.

ARE THE GOATS SMARTER THAN THE SHEEP?

April 2, 2013

ARE THE GOATS SMARTER THAN THE SHEEP?
The Press has been silent on Venezuela during the Obama Presidency. Chavez, the darling of the Liberals, visited Iran in 2007 and said, “We are willing to confront U.S. imperialism in any territory and to defeat it.”

Diplomacy is not rocket science but the United States has had trouble separating the sheep from the goats under the Clinton and Kerry run Department of State. I will sort it out for you. Here are the goats: Venezuela, Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, Cuba, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and Libya. There are many other willing confederates.

To the mission of confronting U.S. Imperialism, Iran and Venezuela put their money where their mouths are by ponying up two billion dollars in a special alliance fund.

When any of these countries does anything, a real Diplomat would understand that it must be viewed in the context of all the goats. An example is the current sabre rattling in North Korea. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has scientists in Iran helping with their nuclear weapons program even as I write this blog. The DPRK already has nuclear weapons and has had them for a long time. Since they haven’t blown themselves to smithereens it is safe to assume they have a degree of expertise in nukes. Since they have the technology is it possible that Iran does not? Again, not rocket science.

We know there are Iranians already in the U.S. through the Mexico – Arizona Freeway. Iranian books have been found discarded in the Arizona desert. The Federal Government handcuffed Sheriff Arpaio giving them a clear path.

We also know that Russia cannot account for their suitcase nukes and many other scary weapons. Added to this nightmare are the 20,000 missing surface to air missiles in Libya, some of which found their way to Gaza. Are you starting to get the picture or are you too focused on homosexual marriage and the Dream Act?

The goats have a name for us lambs, they call us the Big Satan. They call God’s Chosen People and our best ally, Little Satan. The United States is the only reason the goats have not already tried to destroy Israel. The Dream Act for the goats is the destruction of both the Big and Little Satans. Those of us who pray and read our Bibles know that the goats will come against Israel at a time known only to God. God has not told us the EXACT time but He has given us the signs of the time that it will occur. The 38th Chapter of Ezekiel is a good place to start.

So here we set, while the TSA frisks grandmothers in wheelchairs and little girls, our country is in GRAVE danger. Our 92,000 miles of coastline and thousands of miles of border are NOT SECURE. While we send our Naval and Air Forces to Korea, Venezuela can proliferate nukes and surface to air missiles to the United States. The only delivery method they need is a boat and the Iranians already here to meet the boat.

Are the goats smarter than Obama, Kerry, Hagel and the rest?
